Renaming Images[edit]

Quick question: How do I go about renaming an image? I committed a coupel of typos on the file name for the picture of the Springfield Pool-Mobile, and I'd like to fix them if possible. Rollbacks are supposed to be able to rename images files, IIRC, yet I don't see the option showing up anyplace. Thanks! -- Mythigator 16:49, 17 July 2011 (UTC)

It should be in the same place as the page move option.--Cook879 16:55, 17 July 2011 (UTC)
Try it again now. :) --Jake 17:08, 17 July 2011 (UTC)

Sitenotice[edit]

Hey Solar. Could you comment on this and put it in the sitenotice? Thanks. --Will K (Talk ~ Contribs) 08:01, 18 July 2011 (UTC)

And come back on IRC! --Will K (Talk ~ Contribs) 08:03, 18 July 2011 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

I recently saw that you nominated me for the Golden Homer award. Thanks, means a lot. Knife! - Fan of Queen 18:53, 18 July 2011 (UTC)

You're welcome. Keep up the good work. The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.) 18:57, 18 July 2011 (UTC)

Page Problem[edit]

Hi, I recently noticed that on the List of writers page the 'Timeline of producers and show runners' section is really messed up. It looks like a problem with the code or something. I wouldn't know how to fix it, so I figured I'd let you know. Nick97 21:59, 19 July 2011 (EDT)

I've removed it as it is unneeded. The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.) 04:26, 20 July 2011 (EDT)

?[edit]

Uh, whats with the affiliate thing changing? Escyos 04:37, 21 July 2011 (EDT)

I've just been speaking to Supergeeky. Can you guess what it was about? The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.) 04:48, 21 July 2011 (EDT)
That I accused him of being the vandal on my wiki? Escyos 04:51, 21 July 2011 (EDT)
Apparently, you've been using his name to post horrible comments on ShoutWiki's blog. Now, I like Supergeeky and I like ShoutWiki. I gave you the benefit of the doubt and you threw it back in my face. I feel like an idiot. The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.) 04:53, 21 July 2011 (EDT)
I haven't been on anything shoutwiki in months. I only vandalise wikia. Escyos 04:54, 21 July 2011 (EDT)
I didn't believe you last time. I just tried to ignore what you had done. I can't ignore this any more. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.)☆ 04:57, 21 July 2011 (EDT)
But i never did anything, it was the vandal. Escyos 05:02, 21 July 2011 (EDT)
I'm sorry but I don't buy that. The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.) 05:04, 21 July 2011 (EDT)
People complain about some easily revertible vandalism that I didn't do and yet they weren't the ones who's email was hacked and flooded with hundreds of spam a day, Facebook was hacked and sent offensive messages to people i know and family members and my wiki was shoved full of gay porn. And this idiot seems to keep trying to bring me down everywhere online, no matter how much I try to stop them. Escyos 05:08, 21 July 2011 (EDT)
I'm sorry but I really don't buy that. The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.) 05:08, 21 July 2011 (EDT)
Then we're done, i guess. Escyos 05:10, 21 July 2011 (EDT)

IRC[edit]

Hey, Solar. I see you keep joining the IRC channel. Sorry I don't keep responding - I'm watching the Harry Potter movies (I'm on to the first half of the last movie now!). So if you come on now, and ping me, I'll be sure to respond. --Will K (Talk ~ Contribs) 05:11, 23 July 2011 (EDT)

Question and comment[edit]

Remember me? I have a quick question: what happened to the poll on the main page? And a quick comment: The blue text on the left sidebar set on the blue background makes it difficult to read things. -- Brian McClure 08:48, 26 July 2011 (EDT)

Polls broke. See User talk:Jake. I've been meaning to change the text on the sidebar but not sure on what colour to go for. And welcome back, I marked you as inactive since you were away for so long. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 08:51, 26 July 2011 (EDT)
I'm not back for long. I'm going away for a few weeks, so I'll probably inactive for the rest of the summer. -- Brian McClure 23:24, 30 July 2011 (EDT)

Animated Sitcom Wiki Alliance[edit]

Sorry about the delay, but I have finally worked out the problem with my webhost (finally found a tech support operator that knew what the crap I was talking about) and aswanetwork.net is ready to start the Animated Sitcom Wiki Alliance. My alias will be online on the irc channel, but as usual, my nick will depict if i'm actually at my computer or not, so tell me through there what you exactly want on the website and i should see it eventually. Ketchup

Cool. In case I don;t see you on IRC, can you give me full powers on the forum and wiki then? Thanks, ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.)☆ 04:32, 27 July 2011 (EDT)

Thanks very much! And yeah, I could have mentioned Brooks, but I had to limit myself to a few examples otherwise it would have been too long. Gran2 08:53, 27 July 2011 (EDT)

Delete[edit]

This could be deleted: Mypod FatHomerTalk 10:15, 13 August 2011 (EDT)

Why? Seems OK to me. Doh5678 (talk) 10:40, 13 August 2011 (EDT)

Sweet! ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.)☆ 11:43, 16 August 2011 (EDT)

Do you think we can have this?[edit]

Brush With Greatness/Appearances, scroll down to songs. FatHomerTalk 14:51, 16 August 2011 (EDT)

I feel we should do have songs in the appearances if they were sung by cast members. Background sons, no. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 15:00, 16 August 2011 (EDT)
What should we do with the orpan pages songs then? FatHomerTalk 15:19, 16 August 2011 (EDT)
I was going to throw together a music page for some episodes which Chris Ledesma posted info about on his blog, like this: http://simpsonsmusic500.wordpress.com/2011/08/03/music-editing-101-music-spotting-notes/ .--Cook879 15:23, 16 August 2011 (EDT)

Status[edit]

Um...you do realise that because someone isn't active as admin, you don't remove their powers. I think you'll find people go through periods of high and low activity. Cjcsdonut.png -- cjc 16:24, 17 August 2011 (EDT)

I've just noticed you three admins haven't been very active much lately for a while now and you haven't used your powers in ages. It's just that I feel there are other potential admins I am turning down because of too many admins, even though they aren't that active. I won't remove your powers, just mark you as inactive or semi-active. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.)☆ 16:32, 17 August 2011 (EDT)

Voice of mario and luigi?[edit]

Hi on Mario's page it says he is is voiced by hank azaria (spelling)? but on Donald Arthur it says he does the voice for mario. Does he also make the voice of Luigi (video game character)? FatHomerTalk 11:39, 18 August 2011 (EDT)

Donald Arthur does the German voice of Mario. I'm not sure about Luigi but I thought he was non-speaking. Am I wrong? The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.) 11:41, 18 August 2011 (EDT)
Luigi speaks in Marge Be Not Proud. I'm not sure who does his voice, but they sound nearly alike in that episode so it might also be Hank. --Nick97 11:46, 18 August 2011 (EDT)
I guessed at Hank too then. Wasn't sure about DK but I guess Hank again for him. He sounds a bit like Hank. The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.) 11:48, 18 August 2011 (EDT)
I would think that it would be in the "who does what voice" section for the ultimate seasons 1-20 episode guide. Unless they didn't add in any of the characters that they left out in the original 1-6 seasons guide. Either that, or it might be mentioned on the episode commentary. --Nick97 11:54, 18 August 2011 (EDT)
I have several sources I check for voice actors. The book first, then SNPP then IMDb. If either of those doesn't have it (as in this case) I usually make an educated guess which is generally quite spot on. I go off which character the character sounds similar to. In the case of Mario and Luigi, the Italian accent makes them sound a bit like Luigi Risotto who is voiced by Hank Azaria so I would go for him. Donkey Kong has a bit of Cletus to his voice I think so again, I would go for Hank. Correct me if I'm wrong though, I dislike guessing. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.)☆ 11:58, 18 August 2011 (EDT)

Project locations[edit]

Hi, do you think we should create a category for one time locations? Also, i've changed my mind, maybe it's good with a leader of wikisimpsons if you don't do anything bad. FatHomerTalk 16:28, 20 August 2011 (EDT)

Hello[edit]

Hello there. UxieLover1994 10:46, 22 August 2011 (EDT)

Hi. Nice to see that you have found us again. "The Solar Dragon 10:48, 22 August 2011 (EDT)
Yeah, I've been watching some episodes lately. I'm trying to open myself to help other wikis. I've recently joined Spyropedia (which is currently in a downtime), and I am hopeing on writing Spyro Walkthroughs on StraegyWiki. Currently, I'm just taking a small break; with ShoutWiki down again, Spyropedia having some problems, and I'm too shy to join Bulbapedia, I've only got here and the KH Wiki. UxieLover1994 10:55, 22 August 2011 (EDT)
Well, Bulbapedia is currently locked down too but you don't need to be shy about joining. The admins are nice. We're always looking for more editors so feel free to help out. I really hope ShoutWiki recovers soon. "The Solar Dragon 10:59, 22 August 2011 (EDT)
Yeah, you are right. The reason why I'm shy is because I fear of making a mistake and being blamed badly. Also, I know I'll be here now and then. Yeah, SW's been inactive for over two months. Already are people becoming inpatient, y'know. Not me, though. UxieLover1994 11:05, 22 August 2011 (EDT)
Don't worry. There are users who have made really stupid mistakes in the past from what I have seen. It's even worse now that ShoutWiki's blog is down. Supergeeky has disappeared and he was supposed to be hosting the blog now. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 11:11, 22 August 2011 (EDT)
Yeah, I heard. There are plenty of idiots in the world, and they will do anything stuped. I've almost joined the Pokemon Wiki back at Wikia once, until I have heard rummors that they will judge people harshly over even a minor mistake, and was really frightend when I saw over 15 revenge sites for the series, ALL IN ENGLISH.
Yep, some idiots will try to create a revenge site upon being banned from the main site. According to a friend, the KH wiki had a female who did stuped things just to get attention. A fight broke out with another user, and she left the site. However, she returned only after a week, and started to sockpuppet. The admins banned her, and she soon created another KH wiki as pure revenge. Her site was to "focus on the series and treat everyone kindly". She soon had her account terminated by the staff, and used IPs to attack the site now and them. She soon discontined and was not known to have returned since. This is one reason why I am too scared to join major sites. I fear I'll end up creating a revenge site. UxieLover1994 11:26, 22 August 2011 (EDT)
Revenge sites are good but only if they actually deserve it. i.e. Wikia. I will take my revenge against Wikia at some point. The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.) 11:30, 22 August 2011 (EDT)
Yeah, Wikia really screwed up with that controversal skin. They should know better. I think they might close down once they relise that even Wikkii is doing better. We currently have a similar controversy here in Australia at the moment, since our Prime Ministor wants to introduce a Carbon Tax, and everyone does not want it, but she is not lisioning to us. I have to go now. It's getting late. See ya tomorrow! :) UxieLover1994 11:41, 22 August 2011 (EDT)

Tom[edit]

I don't have time to make one, so could you make a disambig for Tom? Thanks--Cook879 07:34, 27 August 2011 (EDT)

Project Re-Watch[edit]

Hi, i'll have the same episode til next week because it still needs help. I haven't been so active this week, but i'll work on the episode this coming week. FatHomerTalk 01:17, 28 August 2011 (EDT)

That's fine. I'll be able to help out too. The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.) 02:53, 28 August 2011 (EDT)

Bad News[edit]

Junpei Takiguchi, the offical Japanese voice actor for Grampa Simpson, has just died yesterday, aged 80. I'm just telling you, since I am a fan of some Japanese material. It does not have to be reported, y'know. UxieLover1994 10:41, 30 August 2011 (EDT)

Huh. We don't have articles on the Japanese voice actors yet but we should do. If you're a fan, would you like to make pages for them? ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.)☆ 10:42, 30 August 2011 (EDT)
Sure. Also, I'm still concerned that ShoutWiki has not returned to full editing, and we've got so much infomation for Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure that is ready to be put on the wiki. It's been nearly three months now, and people are starting to say that theif staff is doing nothing to this move. UxieLover1994 02:41, 14 September 2011 (EDT)
I know. I will continue to ask staff but I probably won't get anything. The first sign of news and I will be told by the staff without fail. I just asked and there is still no news... SolarDragonName.png (Talk - Contribs.) 08:36, 14 September 2011 (EDT)

Language Portal[edit]

Hi, do you think this should be used User:FatHomer/Language Portal? FatHomerTalk 03:20, 3 September 2011 (EDT)

I guess it could be used somewhere. Just not sure where exactly... ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.)☆ 03:33, 3 September 2011 (EDT)

MEdiaWiki[edit]

Hi there, Solar Dragon! I used to edit at the old wikia site, and I was wondering how you installed MediaWiki here. I'm currently active at the Pokémon Wiki (2200 edits), and all of the admins want to move. I'm not an admin, but I'm willing to fork out the cash as long as someone can tell me how to install MEdiaWiki. Thanks, The LAtias Fan

If you're on a Pokemon wiki, I would suggest you don't bother and all move to Bulbapedia instead. I'm a NIWA member I'm afraid. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 12:19, 12 September 2011 (EDT)

Could you please just help with the MediaWiki stuff??? Please? LF001

Firstly, please sign your comments with four tildes ~~~~. Secondly, I am not looking to make another rival wiki for Bulbapedia bearing in mind it is already the best Pokemon wiki out there. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.)☆ 14:22, 12 September 2011 (EDT)

All I'm asking for is help. The admins have said we're not moving. I want to start my own site, could you please help? Latiasfan00116:57, 12 September 2011 (EDT)

I'm sorry, I'm not the one to help you on this. The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.) 16:57, 12 September 2011 (EDT)

Could you direct me to anyone in particular? Latiasfan00102:10, 13 September 2011 (EDT)

Transcript template[edit]

Hi why does it look like this when you use the Trans template?: User:FatHomer/Episode_Transcript_Listing, scroll down to season 8. The " comes on the next line. Can you help me? FatHomerTalk 09:02, 14 September 2011 (EDT)

I have no idea. I didn't make the template. Check who did and see if they have any ideas. The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.) 09:07, 14 September 2011 (EDT)
Fixed :)--Cook879 15:17, 14 September 2011 (EDT)

Appearance?[edit]

How do we add appearances? In group of families or after name a, b, c... ? FatHomerTalk 01:54, 17 September 2011 (EDT)

Alphabetical order. A, B, C... Solar Dragon (Talk Contribs.) 03:03, 17 September 2011 (EDT)
Oh, and by last names too. SolarDragonName.png (Talk - Contribs.) 03:03, 17 September 2011 (EDT)
So we put the characters in alphabetical order after their last names? FatHomerTalk 04:34, 17 September 2011 (EDT)
Sort by last names (e.g. Flanders, Simpson, Skinner) then by first (e.g. Maude, Ned, Rod, Todd)--Cook879 05:48, 17 September 2011 (EDT)

How did you...[edit]

Hey, I just one to know. How did you start this wiki? Spyropedia keeps on crashing, and the Spyro Wiki is "gone" (because of the downtime for ShoutWiki), and DSD and I are thinking of opening an independent site. I also want to open an independent Ratchet & Clank wiki. However, I have two flaws: I cannot afford to pay for a site, and I'm too young (being only 17). UxieLover1994 12:52, 20 September 2011 (EDT)

We got offered free hosting by Jake. That's how we started. If you want more info, talk to him. Also, you can start a website from any age. A couple of friends of mine have had websites for a couple of years. The Solar Dragon 12:59, 20 September 2011 (EDT)
Thanks for the tip! Once I'm ready, I'll ask Jake for a new Ratchet & Clank wiki. It's been on my mind since I left Wikia. I'm a fan of that series, y'know! UxieLover1994 05:45, 21 September 2011 (EDT)

Simpsonspedia[edit]

Are you taking from simpsonspedia? FatHomerTalk 15:35, 22 September 2011 (EDT)

He's not, he creates them himself. Do not take from Simpsonspedia!!!!--Cook879 15:43, 22 September 2011 (EDT)
http://simpsonswiki.net/wiki/File:Red.PNG - http://simpsonspedia.net/index.php?title=Datei:Red_Barclay.png , he just removes the white background.I see that as taking from simpsonspedia. FatHomerTalk 15:47, 22 September 2011 (EDT)
But he's not taking the image, he's editing it himself to get the same result.--Cook879 15:49, 22 September 2011 (EDT)

What's the difference, i thought we only skould use images from the show. FatHomerTalk 15:51, 22 September 2011 (EDT)

Well if you take the image then your taking someone's effort making the transparent image and using it without permission or credit. However in this case Solar has put in the time and effort. In both cases the image is copyright Fox as it's from the show, just without the background. Basically this is an alternative to official character art for minor characters who haven't had art released by Fox. Having a clear background suits the infobox better then a busy image with background.--Cook879 16:03, 22 September 2011 (EDT)
No one owns the image except Fox. Therefore the license we use on the image covers it. Fox owns The Simpsons so they own the images too. All our images are "stolen", stolen from the show and Fox. The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.) 16:07, 22 September 2011 (EDT)

Infobox Changes[edit]

Hey Solar Dragon. I've made some changes to the character infoboxes to make the Male/Female rows more consistent across browsers. Since this was my first major change to the wiki, I wanted to run it by you to make sure it was ok and I didn't screw anything up. Feel free to revert the changes if you don't like them or for any other reason. Thanks! --Jake 13:31, 24 September 2011 (EDT)

Sure, seems fine to me. :) Solar Dragon (Talk Contribs.) 13:32, 24 September 2011 (EDT)
