New table[edit]

The new table don't work in the comics, as you did. If the screen size is not enough large, is the table under the infobox. /AleWi 00:58, 30 January 2012 (EST)

It doesn't work with your comic template, no. Which is why we have to replace the comic template with the normal code. Plus, you can just change the width of the table with {{Table|width=74%| or something similar. The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.) 01:15, 30 January 2012 (EST)
So the idea behind this new table is that it will allow us to change all of the tables at once through the template in the future? If so, that's a great idea! --Jake 21:54, 30 January 2012 (EST)
Yes, it also has a fairly unique style and looks good. I'm also adding in other features, such as the width change and the option to make the table sortable and eventually collapsible if I can get it to work. The Solar Dragon 01:47, 31 January 2012 (EST)

Images[edit]

Hi, I think we should add which episode, comic... every image is taken from. FatHomerTalk 11:13, 31 January 2012 (EST)

This would take AGES though, wouldn't it? | SimpsonsFR.pngSimpsonsFA.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFD.pngSimpsonsFO.pngSimpsonsFM.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFO.png | Talk | Contributions | Edit count | 11:33, 31 January 2012 (EST)
Yeah, and I don't really see the benefits. The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.) 12:10, 31 January 2012 (EST)

Sometimes I want to know where the image comes from. We don't need to put it on all the images, but I think we should add a rule or something that says that you should add where it comes from. And then over time you could add information to the existing images. FatHomerTalk 15:02, 31 January 2012 (EST)

I've been doing that all along to images as I've uploaded them, as it just struck me as being the right thing to do in the interest of attributing the source properly. It would be a monster of a job to do that to every image on the wiki, though, so as long as they've all got the proper licencing information (which is something that we CAN easily check on an ongoing basis), I don't think it's anything worth developing a case of knotty knickers over. -- Mythigator 19:02, 31 January 2012 (EST)
It has what links to this file so that should probably help you find the page. Hopefully it will have a sensible name so you know what the page is straight away. | SimpsonsFR.pngSimpsonsFA.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFD.pngSimpsonsFO.pngSimpsonsFM.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFO.png | Talk | Contributions | Edit count | 12:05, 1 February 2012 (EST)

FaceWikiaBook[edit]

See the new "feature" thay are going to bring in They're trying to facebookerise their site to help, too bad its gonna fail. Escyos 21:05, 1 February 2012 (EST)

Removed the link as I really don't like having Wikia links around. Also, I heard about that ages ago and I thought that they had already implemented it :S ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.)☆ 04:28, 2 February 2012 (EST)
I'm entirely convinced they have all lost it over there. One day soon (hopefully) it will cease being a wiki host and kind of segue into a social network. Escyos 01:25, 3 February 2012 (EST)
I've decided to be evil and start domain names from wikia for some upcoming shows so they can't have a wiki of their own. 150.203.223.24 07:43, 20 February 2012 (EST)

Bronze Homer[edit]

Last month, you did it to mee, this month to Nick97, the loser of the Silver Homer gets the Bronze Homer, two people can not have the Bronze Homer. /AleWi 04:50, 2 February 2012 (EST)

Oh god, I did it again >_> SolarDragonName.png (Talk - Contribs.) 04:54, 2 February 2012 (EST)

File deletions?[edit]

Hi Solar! I was wondering when deleting files do I nominate it for deletion, or ask an admin (or whatever) to delete it for me? Anyway would you please delete: File:50 Cent real life.jpg, File:Best varney.jpg, and File:Sara-gilbert-001.jpg, as I created better versions. Thank you. --Fred (Talk) 02:14, 3 February 2012 (EST)

Well, as long as a file isn't used elsewhere, I will delete it within a couple of days anyway as I check the unused files often and delete what I deem unnecessary. Otherwise, you can always place Template:Speedy Delete on pages that don't need discussion to be deleted. SolarDragonName.png (Talk - Contribs.) 05:22, 3 February 2012 (EST)
Thanks. --Fred (Talk) 04:05, 3 February 2012 (EST)

New table on Seasons?[edit]

Hi,

How do I add the new table to for example Season 6, because it has text between each episode. FatHomerTalk 14:15, 3 February 2012 (EST)

Do it normally up until that text. Then, simply Type {{TableColspan|Text|7 (or how many columns there are)}} and carry on. See Season 23 for an example. The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.) 14:17, 3 February 2012 (EST)
Thank you! FatHomerTalk 16:35, 3 February 2012 (EST)

Does the table under the section "DVD Release" on season 6 need the new table? FatHomerTalk 04:57, 4 February 2012 (EST)

Also if I want to create a table that looks like this (look at the code to understand):


| Hi | Hi | ——————————— | text | text | text | ——————————— | text | text | text | It is two tabs on the top and on the next row under the second tab there is two tabs. FatHomerTalk 13:59, 4 February 2012 (EST)

Is there any way to get those summaries to be left-aligned instead of centered? -- Mythigator 14:14, 4 February 2012 (EST)
@FatHomer, yes it does. I will do it at some time (laptop unable to connect to Internet, on desktop which I can't get much time on, nor is it that practical for this sort of editing. @Mythigator, I'm on it. It will be a parameter called "align=Left/RIght/Center". The Solar Dragon 17:36, 4 February 2012 (EST)

Blue Flannel Pants promo[edit]

Hi, I thought that image might now be The Man in the Blue Flannel Pants, but I found it a while ago on the web. It could be a promo, though, as it has Homer looking quite proud and the kids very happy, like the storyline. Anyway, I don't know if it is or not, but I did see it in a video long before the airdate. | SimpsonsFR.pngSimpsonsFA.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFD.pngSimpsonsFO.pngSimpsonsFM.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFO.png | Talk | Contributions | Edit count | 11:09, 7 February 2012 (EST)

I've watched the episode a few times now and that scene was never in it. FOX released various pictures like that but they're promos for The Simpsons itself and not the episode. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 11:16, 7 February 2012 (EST)

Randomno Admin[edit]

Shouldn't Randomno be promoted to an Admin? FatHomerTalk 16:11, 7 February 2012 (EST)

Being an admin on Simpsons Wikia does not mean you get admin rights here too. If he wants to regain his admin status, he has to work hard and eventually place an admin request like everyone else. However, at the moment, we don't really have a need for admins. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 16:13, 7 February 2012 (EST)
Ok. FatHomerTalk 16:27, 7 February 2012 (EST)
The idea was that the admins moving got admin rights here after a while, but the moves sort of crumbled away a bit. I haven't really needed admin status yet, as I can either use a bot or use the delete template. Also, I have worked quite hard as I've been here since January 22, 2012, and made 800 and-a-bit edits. Phinbart has 1,500 and been here since November 19, 2010. DaRanger has been here since August 20, 2011 and made 400 edits. If not admin status, I think I should get a Homer award. :-) | SimpsonsFR.pngSimpsonsFA.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFD.pngSimpsonsFO.pngSimpsonsFM.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFO.png | Talk | Contributions | Edit count | 10:43, 8 February 2012 (EST)
If you keep working this way, you will most likely get a Homer award this month. :) Glad you're fine with not having admin status at the moment though. The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.) 10:44, 8 February 2012 (EST)

I'll be the first to say it...[edit]

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, CALLUM! A particularly special one ;) you should add it to the sitenotice! You are, after all, the head of Wikisimpsons. --wk (talk) 01:06, 10 February 2012 (EST)

Thank you. I'm not drawing too much attention to myself today though :P ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 03:20, 10 February 2012 (EST)

Ringo Starr image[edit]

I hate to be a pain, especially on your birthday, but I don't known what the hell I did on Ringo Starr image. I don't think I should rename files any time soon. Sorry about this. --Fred (Talk) 01:25, 10 February 2012 (EST)

You just didn't suppress the redirect then. And it's not pain, I don't mind. :) The Solar Dragon 04:30, 10 February 2012 (EST)
Cool, thanks. Also, I'm sorry I forgot, especially if its not a pain. --Fred (Talk) 01:54, 10 February 2012 (EST)

Hey[edit]

Unban me from #wikisimpsons now. THEAVENGINGBANDIT 12:39, 11 February 2012 (EST)

No. The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.) 12:43, 11 February 2012 (EST)
Why not? THEAVENGINGBANDIT 12:44, 11 February 2012 (EST)
'cause. SolarDragonName.png (Talk - Contribs.) 12:47, 11 February 2012 (EST)
Because you wanna insult me on the channel and PoD told you to stop? It's your fault that I'm banned from the channel, not you. You would do well to be nice to the bandit for once. THEAVENGINGBANDIT 12:53, 11 February 2012 (EST)
Meh. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 12:57, 11 February 2012 (EST)
That's all you have to say? If you're actaully gonna ban me from a channel that I came to rarely for not even 10 fucking days just because you need to stop insulting me, you've got serious problems and need special education help. THEAVENGINGBANDIT 13:07, 11 February 2012 (EST)
I banned you because you're annoying. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 13:08, 11 February 2012 (EST)
If you're gonna be such a dickweed brat to me on the IRC and this wiki, don't expect another edit from me ever again on thsi wiki. Good bye and good riddance. THEAVENGINGBANDIT 13:12, 11 February 2012 (EST)
Well, seeing as how you had to look up Homer's last name, I don't really see that as much of a loss. I know it seems like I'm being harsh but I'm damaging your chances of getting back onto #sw by constantly insulting you as you just walk right into them and I am unable to resist. It's nothing personal, it's for your good. Solar Dragon (Talk Contribs.) 13:15, 11 February 2012 (EST)

Transparent Images[edit]

IDK if you are allowed to use and upload them, but there's a number of images we can add here that are character poses and transparent.

Wtso.net comic problems?[edit]

Is the comic portion of wtso.net having some technical problems? I haven't been able to view any comics online for a least a couple of days now. -- Mythigator 09:02, 14 February 2012 (EST)

Done for me too. If you search, you can find collections of comics to download which are readable with a comic reader (like Comical). Of course, legally it's a no-no, but so is the site.--Cook879 13:16, 14 February 2012 (EST)
Must be part of the Internet's collective butt-pucker due to the SOPA debate in the USA. Damn politicians! -- Mythigator 15:39, 14 February 2012 (EST)

Previous editors[edit]

Okay, so we moved Wikia's content over to here, yes? Some editors, however, may not have moved here, or not even been here more the move. Take a user like Database, for example, never edited actually on this site, just on Simpsons Wiki. Those editors who just edited on Simpsons Wiki may have done it for the benefit of that site, not here. So, I think we could get in trouble, whatever the cc laws say. | SimpsonsFR.pngSimpsonsFA.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFD.pngSimpsonsFO.pngSimpsonsFM.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFO.png | Talk | Contributions | Edit count | 16:38, 14 February 2012 (EST)

Nope, the license is fine and we can't get in trouble for it at all. The Solar Dragon 16:39, 14 February 2012 (EST)

Hi, could you restore this file, please. I was just about to rename it and stick it on the character's page when you deleted it. :P Thanks --Nick97 (talk ~ contribs) 18:41, 15 February 2012 (EST)

Table problems[edit]

What's the problem with the table on Simpsons Illustrated (second)? It seems to have centered itself on the page, UNDERlapping the infobox. Phinbart - just one of the huge Bart fans! 16:08, 16 February 2012 (EST)

Vector background[edit]

On http://simpsonswiki.net/w/index.php?title=Main_Page&useskin=vector the background is still winter-themed? Can you fix this? Phinbart - just one of the huge Bart fans! 16:52, 17 February 2012 (EST)

Also, the monaco sidebar needs updating. The affiliates section needs to be re-done, http://simpsonswiki.net/wiki/List_of_Simpsons_releases_by_date is still in "Episodes", and I think that section needs a good revamp with different episodes, add landmark eps... Phinbart - just one of the huge Bart fans! 16:57, 17 February 2012 (EST)
Done vector, do the sidebar in a bit.--Cook879 17:03, 17 February 2012 (EST)
What episodes??--Cook879 17:16, 17 February 2012 (EST)

Two templates...[edit]

Do we really need both of these: Template:Springfield and Template:Places? FatHomerTalk 06:25, 19 February 2012 (EST)

Places is for Springfield's state and includes all districts etc. Springfield is only in Springfield and only includes recurring locations. Solar Dragon (Talk Contribs.) 17:23, 19 February 2012 (EST)

The Simpsons — Information[edit]

Hi, I created this Simpsons site here, so do you think we might be able to affiliate after it gets a bit more info? | SimpsonsFR.pngSimpsonsFA.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFD.pngSimpsonsFO.pngSimpsonsFM.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFO.png | Talk | Contributions | Edit count | 12:29, 21 February 2012 (EST)

Re-founding a Simpsons dictionary[edit]

So, Simptionary didn't turn out that good, but Made-up words is quite long, and I can think of a few more. The Dictionary namespace doesn't have very many articles anyway. If we could re-found a Simpsons dictionary, I would prefer the name "D'ohctionary", though I don't know. Anyway, could we have another attempt? | SimpsonsFR.pngSimpsonsFA.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFD.pngSimpsonsFO.pngSimpsonsFM.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFO.png | Talk | Contributions | Edit count | 14:33, 27 February 2012 (EST)

<sarcasm>After the amazing job our other subwikis have done...</sarcasm> I would have to say no to that. The Dictionary namespace will do. Our subwikis don't get many views so it is just not worth it. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 14:36, 27 February 2012 (EST)
Do you think we could ask Jake to add an actual <sarcasm> tag? Homer emoticon.gif Anyway, even the dictionary namespace is quite small, it's not making much difference. The whole point is we actually add some more entries. Then it might become a bit more popular. | SimpsonsFR.pngSimpsonsFA.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFD.pngSimpsonsFO.pngSimpsonsFM.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFO.png | Talk | Contributions | Edit count | 15:32, 27 February 2012 (EST)
Feel free to turn some of our made up words into dictionary articles then. They all should be anyway. The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.) 15:35, 27 February 2012 (EST)
Do you think I could found a site and if it turns out successful we can have a database dump to a subwiki here? | SimpsonsFR.pngSimpsonsFA.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFD.pngSimpsonsFO.pngSimpsonsFM.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFO.png | Talk | Contributions | Edit count | 11:29, 29 February 2012 (EST)
What, you mean elsewhere? That is kind of pointless. Our subwikis don't do too well in views. Fanon and Swedish generally get less than 10 views a day. Merchandise only got less than 50 a day. Another sub wiki won't be too great in my opinion. Sorry, it's not going to happen. Solar Dragon (Talk Contribs.) 11:31, 29 February 2012 (EST)

New table size prob[edit]

There's something strange with the table on Simpsons Illustrated (second). It seems to have somehow...erm...expanded itself. Phinbart - just one of the huge Bart fans! 11:33, 28 February 2012 (EST)

I know, just worked that out for myself now... ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.)☆ 11:34, 28 February 2012 (EST)
Thanks, the problem's fixed now. Also, should Lisa Comics be included in the One-Shot Wonders list as not One-Shot Wonder, but listed as a seperate comic? Phinbart - just one of the huge Bart fans! 11:55, 28 February 2012 (EST)
If it's not a one-shot wonder then no. The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.) 11:56, 28 February 2012 (EST)
The problem at Simpsons Illustrated (second) is still there. Test shrink you windows screen. /AleWi 12:14, 28 February 2012 (EST)

Do you think you could add a scroll to it or something else to make it slightly smaller?

User:Randomno/Newarticletext. My idea. Most of the info there is pretty basic and if anyone doesn't know that they should probably research wikis before they create a page. | SimpsonsFR.pngSimpsonsFA.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFD.pngSimpsonsFO.pngSimpsonsFM.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFO.png | Talk | Contributions | Edit count | 14:28, 28 February 2012 (EST)

QuoteEx prob[edit]

For some reason, the QuoteEx template won't work on "The Simpsons: Tapped Out". It appears as:

"THIS GAME IS LIFE-RUININGLY FUN! Homer accidently caused a meltdown that wiped out Springfield. D’OH! Now, it’s up to you to
rebuild it! From the writers of The Simpsons, tap into a city building game that lets you create your own living, breathing
Springfield... for FREE."

―{{{2}}}

I don't know why the link won't appear. Phinbart - just one of the huge Bart fans! 12:44, 29 February 2012 (EST)

Since the same thing happened with the table templates, it doesn't seem to be a coding problem. I've just asked Jake if he can look into it. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.)☆ 12:50, 29 February 2012 (EST)
