"loll" and "led" in The Simpsons Movie/Transcript[edit]

The transcript page was full of "loll" where it should have been "I'll" and "led" where it should have been "I'd". Can you think of any more words where this could have happened? | SimpsonsFR.pngSimpsonsFA.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFD.pngSimpsonsFO.pngSimpsonsFM.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFO.png | Talk | Contributions | Edit count | 09:20, August 22, 2014 (EDT)

It seemed to happen here. While a few of the "LF" was changed to "IF" (in lowercase ofc), the I'ds and I'lls became leds and lolls... Those are some weird changes. | SimpsonsFR.pngSimpsonsFA.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFD.pngSimpsonsFO.pngSimpsonsFM.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFO.png | Talk | Contributions | Edit count | 09:25, August 22, 2014 (EDT)
Best way to fix it would be to copy and paste into Notepad and use the find and replace function. Not sure if what Cook did was something like that, except something went wrong. It could well have been. The Solar Dragon 09:32, August 22, 2014 (EDT)
Yeah, I've done that for the two I know of, but it's a bit tricky to not make mistakes when you're editing a 50k-word page. Words like "pulled" should actually have the "led". | SimpsonsFR.pngSimpsonsFA.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFD.pngSimpsonsFO.pngSimpsonsFM.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFO.png | Talk | Contributions | Edit count | 09:37, August 22, 2014 (EDT)


The template makes my sidebar go down a size and move inside the main content area. It first happened after this edit. | SimpsonsFR.pngSimpsonsFA.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFD.pngSimpsonsFO.pngSimpsonsFM.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFO.png | Talk | Contributions | Edit count | 17:15, August 22, 2014 (EDT)

Everything's fine to me. Which skin are you using? The Solar Dragon 17:29, August 22, 2014 (EDT)
Vector. MonoBook also gets this happening to it. (The links are previews of the skins on the ComicTabC page). | SimpsonsFR.pngSimpsonsFA.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFD.pngSimpsonsFO.pngSimpsonsFM.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFO.png | Talk | Contributions | Edit count | 17:38, August 22, 2014 (EDT)
Think I fixed it. Although Monobook still looks a bit off... The Solar Dragon 17:51, August 22, 2014 (EDT)
Yeah, the sidebar on MonoBook is getting pushed below the content area. | SimpsonsFR.pngSimpsonsFA.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFD.pngSimpsonsFO.pngSimpsonsFM.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFO.png | Talk | Contributions | Edit count | 18:00, August 22, 2014 (EDT)

Cool Brown House[edit]

Hey, is your Cool Brown House dispensing every 5 minutes instead of four hours? Some IP commented on this on the Clash of Clones event talk page. ~ Phinbart (talkcontribs) 05:14, August 24, 2014 (EDT)

Featured Article Link[edit]

The featured article on the main page is currently the Screamapillar, but it (the image) actually links to the Alice Glick article. Maybe that was the previous feature? Lustomatical (talk) 17:09, August 26, 2014 (EDT)

Barbarian Homer[edit]

Hey, would you be able to grab the pic of the notice when Barbarian Homer levelled up to 10? My device powered off and couldn't get the photo. Thanks, ~ Phinbart (talkcontribs) 04:55, August 29, 2014 (EDT)

I would do, but I can't. Mine's already Level 13. The Solar Dragon 05:01, August 29, 2014 (EDT)

Tapped Out[edit]

You have the game files, right? I remember PMing Outerhaven on the Tapped Out forum months ago and he said you had the game files. ~ Phinbart (talkcontribs) 06:43, August 30, 2014 (EDT)

I'm sorry, I can't access them any more. I used my iPod to get into the files but my iPod was a pain in the ass, so I ended up getting rid of it. I no longer have access to the files. The Solar Dragon 08:38, August 30, 2014 (EDT)
Do you think you could help out by adding some level info to the table here? With the rate I'm going about collecting gold, I don't think I'm gonna get far with levelling up my costumes. ~ Phinbart (talkcontribs) 11:00, August 31, 2014 (EDT)

It wasn't a screenshot[edit]

It was a PNG copy of the promo, so basically exactly the same image. Keep it JPEG if you want to though... | SimpsonsFR.pngSimpsonsFA.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFD.pngSimpsonsFO.pngSimpsonsFM.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFO.png | Talk | Contributions | Edit count | 09:35, August 30, 2014 (EDT)

Simpsons World the Ultimate Episode Guide: Seasons 1-20[edit]

Why is it interesting information that a character appears in this book? After all it is harder to find someone who is not mentioned in it. --2F13 (talk) 07:49, August 31, 2014 (EDT)

Well, I've only listed appearances for characters who appeared as a factfile in the book. I don't do it if they just appear in a picture of quote. The Solar Dragon 09:02, August 31, 2014 (EDT)
Eeerr... Steve Mobbs (page 973) has a reference to the book in Appearances section but Muk Mu on the next page has not. I don't understand the principle yet. :-) --2F13 (talk) 13:16, August 31, 2014 (EDT)
Muk Mu should do, we just haven't gotten around to it yet. Not all factfile characters have the book as an appearance yet. The Solar Dragon 13:18, August 31, 2014 (EDT)

Wikisimpsons Answers Spam Users[edit]

Hi Solar! When a registered Spam Account puts spam comments or spam questions in Wikisimpsons Answers, should we block it from here(from Wikisimpsons site)?? And if so, should we add a Block Reason like "Spam in Wikisimpsons Answers" ?? / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 11:55, August 31, 2014 (EDT)

Yes, block here. It also blocks on Answers. And just putting the usual spam notice will be fine. The Solar Dragon 12:23, August 31, 2014 (EDT)

Candidates for speedy deletion[edit]

Aside from the regular deletion category, you might want to check out this category too. Maybe run your bot to delete files from this category too every now and then. Gazlene the Pork Girl (talk) 14:47, August 31, 2014 (EDT)

I can't edit semi-protected pages =([edit]

Hi Solar! I was going to edit the Robin Williams article, adding the section "Behind the Laughter", because he died in real life. But it turned out that article is semi-protected and i can't edit the semi-protected pages like before. Those 3 months of blockade were brought me terrible consequences. Would you give me the trusted rights again?. Greetings! --Barthony70099 Eat my shorts! Ay Caramba! 15:37, September 6, 2014 (EDT)

Why on earth did Myth set an article like that to only-admins after one false edit...? | SimpsonsFR.pngSimpsonsFA.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFD.pngSimpsonsFO.pngSimpsonsFM.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFO.png | Talk | Contributions | Edit count | 15:59, September 6, 2014 (EDT)
He probably did it just to prevent from more false edits. / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 16:42, September 6, 2014 (EDT)
When a celebrity dies, people often change the character status to deceased, even when the character wasn't mentioned to have been dead in the episode. Therefore, it's common practice to protect it, usually after the first bad edit. The Solar Dragon 17:12, September 6, 2014 (EDT)
This was what was going to add to Article

== Behind the Laughter ==<br/>Robin Williams died in real life on August 11, [[2014]], due to a because he committed suicide at age 63. --Barthony70099 Eat my shorts! Ay Caramba! 17:22, September 6, 2014 (EDT)

Yes, but it says he's set the lock to sysop. Doesn't seem to be since I can edit it, but that's what it says he put it as. | SimpsonsFR.pngSimpsonsFA.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFD.pngSimpsonsFO.pngSimpsonsFM.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFO.png | Talk | Contributions | Edit count | 17:39, September 6, 2014 (EDT)
The day Williams died, I set the article to semi-protected status, and two minutes after that some schmuck changed the status of the Williams character from Alive to Deceased. So I ramped the protection up to Sysop to keep every Tom, Dick, and Harry IP from mucking it up again. -- Mythigator (talk) 20:00, September 6, 2014 (EDT)

More The Simpsons Guy promo pics[edit]

Hi Solar, in FoxFlash there are new promo pics for The Simpsons Guy (In Family Guy's Season 12 Gallery). / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 04:17, September 9, 2014 (EDT)

Thanks Loco. I'll upload them ASAP but I have to go soon so I'll let you sort out licensing, adding them to the page etc. The Solar Dragon 05:00, September 9, 2014 (EDT)

Male Cast template[edit]

Hey Solar! I've seen that in some pages you (your bot) changed gender= Male/Female to gender= {{Male/Female cast)) instead of gender= {{Male/Female cast}}. You should use your bot to fix those pages. / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 19:56, September 12, 2014 (EDT)
Hi again Solar! First of all, it was only with the Male Cast template the Female Cast was OK. Secondly, I'm fixing it with AutoWikiBrowser, so you don't have to worry about this. And Finally, I want to Apologize to You and the whole wiki for having flooded RecentChanges. / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 20:38, September 12, 2014 (EDT)
Hi Another time Solar! I've used AWB to change {{Male cast)) to {{Male cast}}, but I haven't changed it on all of the pages with that mistake. There still are some pages that need that to be changed. Could you finish this with your Bot so I don't flood more the Recent Changes page. Thanks, Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 21:38, September 12, 2014 (EDT)
if you create a bot account, like by SolarBot account, I can give that bot privileges so it doesn't flood recent changes. Make sure you preview the first few edits before you set to auto save. And thanks for pointing out the bracket thing, I'm not really sure why I didn't pick up on that at first. The Solar Dragon 15:47, September 13, 2014 (EDT)

If your bot needs admin right, I can give those to you. It has bot rights at the moment so its edits will be hidden. Just watch them for the first few please, in case anything bad happens. The Solar Dragon 17:52, September 13, 2014 (EDT)

Unwanted categories I accidentally added to some pages[edit]

Hey Solar! Could you use your Bot to remove some categories I accidentally added to some pages with AWB. The categories are Category:Living People and Category:19xx Births. Thanks Solar! I would do it myself with AWB but I don't want to flood Recent Changes. / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 15:28, September 13, 2014 (EDT)

Okay, I'm on it. Removing the birth categories is going to be harder as I have to remove each individually though. Plus, removing them is easier with Pywikipediabot. So I'm using that instead. Make sure you have the general changes box unticked in future. That's the one that adds the categories. The Solar Dragon 15:43, September 13, 2014 (EDT)

It's a better image... that's why. The Solar Dragon 16:58, September 14, 2014 (EDT)

Could you hide a revision of a page[edit]

Hey Solar! Could you hide this diff of the page Blog:Changes to the naming policy? It's Spam. / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 03:22, September 15, 2014 (EDT)

Literally just did that before reading this. The Solar Dragon 03:35, September 15, 2014 (EDT)

Skin change? Or template change?[edit]

On the References and Appearances tabs for episodes and comic stories, the "[edit]" links for the sections are on the far left, rather than the far right. Is this from a recent change, or something I'm just now noticing? The position of the edit links makes the pages look awkward, particularly the References tabs. I use the MonoBook skin, so I'm wondering it might be a result of a change to the skin ... ? -- Mythigator (talk) 13:29, September 18, 2014 (EDT)

Yes, this has happened in later versions of MediaWiki. It should be on all pages, not just those, but I have no idea why it isn't. The Solar Dragon 13:43, September 18, 2014 (EDT)
Actually, I'd prefer for it to be gone from those pages. On the References pages in particular, having the edit links on the left really screws up the outline layout. But if that's not possible, I understand. -- Mythigator (talk) 13:50, September 18, 2014 (EDT)
Yeah, it's a change that happened recently. It should be on the left for all the pages. I'm really not sure why it isn't. It might be possible to move it though, let me look into it. The Solar Dragon 13:59, September 18, 2014 (EDT)
Okay, it's not a MediaWiki thing, it's to do with the templates. I tried to fix it, but in doing so I send the sidebar halfway down the page and I couldn't fix this. I thought having the edit buttons on the left would be better than having to scroll down to find the sidebar so I've left it... I'm sorry I couldn't find a proper fix. The Solar Dragon 14:21, September 18, 2014 (EDT)
Similar to #ComicTabC section. | SimpsonsFR.pngSimpsonsFA.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFD.pngSimpsonsFO.pngSimpsonsFM.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFO.png | Talk | Contributions | Edit count | 14:38, September 18, 2014 (EDT)

Editing tables[edit]

Hi. I don't know if you're the right one to ask but I'm having difficulty finding any documentation on how to edit tables in the style used on this wiki, e.g. on the page I want to edit. From what I can see, you're running MediaWiki and MediaWiki's documentation states a certain style for creating tables. But that's not the type of tables used on this Wiki, even though Help:Table_markup states that MediaWiki's style should be used. You're using something that looks like special templates. Are these documented anywhere? Normann (talk) 18:07, September 18, 2014 (EDT)

That page is severely outdated. I'll give it a proper haul over at some point. The basics are documented in Template:Table. There are some more advanced features which you can see by looking at other tables I guess. The Solar Dragon 18:17, September 18, 2014 (EDT)
Okay, I've made a start to reworking Help:Table markup now. I'll continue working on it. The Solar Dragon 18:43, September 18, 2014 (EDT)

ConfirmEdit extension[edit]

I think you might want to take a look at this: http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:ConfirmEdit. It really could prevent spambots from registering on this wiki. I'm not kidding. :) Or is there one already instealled? If so, maybe there needs to be some necessary tweaking. I'm just trying to help out. Gazlene the Pork Girl (talk) 20:33, September 23, 2014 (EDT)

Our spam problem used to be a lot bigger than it is right now. I would delete one spam page and block the user and there would be 2 or 3 more pages when I checked recent changes. ConfirmEdit helped a lot and reduced the amount of spam to what it is today. If you check Special:Version, you can see what extensions we have installed. Thanks for the suggestion but we already have it there. The Solar Dragon 03:59, September 24, 2014 (EDT)

Running bot; is there an archive?[edit]

I operated a bot in the "big" Wikipedia years ago. I could repair lot of articles with it here too. However somehow I have to collect title of articles that suffer a specific problem. Is it possible to download the archived Wikisimpsons pages at once like in Wikipedia? --2F13 (talk) 15:05, September 24, 2014 (EDT)

I'm sorry but I'm confused as to what exactly you're asking for. The Solar Dragon 15:20, September 24, 2014 (EDT)

See this and for example this page. One can download all of contents in a form of single compressed file. So it is possible to scan raw text of all wiki pages with a program in order to find specific error. E.g. Wikisimpsons:Style_Guide_Episodes#Quotes_tab writes that The character's name should be put in a bold, along with a colon, also in bold. In million times colon is outside of bold marks. I could fix this my robot but first I have to "grep" the archive in order to find pages to repair. I don't want to crawl the site on-line like Google Search engine does. --2F13 (talk) 00:45, September 25, 2014 (EDT)

Okay, I see now. I thought it might have been something like that but I wasn't sure. If you want access to a database dump, you'll have to ask our server manager, Jake. I'd suggest emailing him. However, I'm not sure how long it will take for him to get back to you as he's been pretty busy lately. The Solar Dragon 03:40, September 25, 2014 (EDT)

With your permission,[edit]

I was wondering if it would be okay for me to upload a pic of Krusty the Clown, Professor Frink and Doc Brown for the Back to the Future wiki, Futurepedia (http://backtothefuture.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page). To explain, Krusty and Frink were deemed suitable for a brief article due to their appearance with Doc Brown in one of The Simpsons Ride video, and of course, it couldn't hurt to have a Simpsonized version of Doc.

I'll be sure to provide credit to this wikia for their inclusion of course if the upload is okay with you. Antiyonder (talk) 15:08, September 27, 2014 (EDT)

Okay, firstly, we're not a "wikia", we're a "wiki". Wikia is an evil corporation who only cares about money and doesn't care about its users. Secondly, images are owned by FOX, we don't own them, you're free to use images from our wiki anywhere. The Solar Dragon 15:23, September 27, 2014 (EDT)
Ok, thanks. Antiyonder (talk) 15:28, September 27, 2014 (EDT)
On the note of Doc Brown, would he qualify for the crossover character category? Antiyonder (talk) 16:15, September 27, 2014 (EDT)
Sorry for bumping in, but does Wikisimpsons care about its users, unlike Wikia? It also seems that Wikia is where most newbies edit at (and where 1,000,000+ junk wikis are created). Gazlene the Pork Girl (talk) 16:20, September 27, 2014 (EDT)
Yes, we care about our users. If anyone has any complaints, we'll listen to them. If they're reasonable complaints, we'll try and work to fix them. If anyone has any suggestions, we'll look into putting that into use. Meanwhile, Wikia staff butt into wikis, demote admins without talking to the community, block users without warning, claim discussions as "closed", even when they're not and then refuse to delete wikis when the ENTIRE COMMUNITY moves away. So many wikis moved away back in 2011. Because Wikia screwed up. The new skin was designed to make money. Users complained about not wanting the skin, Wikia forced it on us. They didn't listen, even though 90% of the users didn't like it. The Solar Dragon 16:40, September 27, 2014 (EDT)

"The Simpsons Guy"[edit]

Do characters, crew members and so forth from "The Simpsons Guy" get an article here? Just wondering :P --Fred (Talk Contribs. Editcount) 08:06, September 28, 2014 (EDT)

I'm going to say yes. The same will go for Simpsorama. The Solar Dragon 10:18, September 28, 2014 (EDT)
Do they really have to get an article? I mean, it is a Family Guy episode after all, not a simpsons episode. So I think that only named characters should get articles. And I'm not sure about some things in that episode getting an article like "Modern Family" or "For Pete's Sake". On the other hand, I would consider that the characters and crew and so from Simpsorama should get an article since it will be a Simpsons episode after all. I think a discussion on this should be opened. / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 15:35, October 2, 2014 (EDT)
It's my opinion that we should treat this as a Simpsons special, so everything in the episode should get articles if it falls under the notability policy. However, if you want to open a discussion about it, feel free to do so. I'd like to see other opinions. The Solar Dragon 15:44, October 2, 2014 (EDT)
I see your point. It's a Family Guy episode but we ought to treat it as a Special. I agree with this, if we treat it as a special, then all the things in the episode should get an article. Anyway, I think that the Crossovers Section in the Notability Policy page should only be for the "Family Guy" or non-simpsons episodes. I'm feeling as if all I'm said now has not much sense at all. But anyway, I think that the Notability Policy should undergo some little changes, like those that you suggested some months ago. / Loco87 (SimpsonsFT.pngSimpsonsFA.pngSimpsonsFL.pngSimpsonsFK.png / Contribs) 16:49, October 2, 2014 (EDT)

Your Horrorscope vandal[edit]

I don't think anybody blocked the IP who vandalized the Your Horrorscope article yesterday. --Nick97 (talk ~ contribs) 17:43, September 29, 2014 (EDT)

It's been dealt with. Also, he was right about the spelling... The Solar Dragon 17:51, September 29, 2014 (EDT)


Just out of curiosity, when's our Halloween design going back up? ~ Phinbart (talkcontribs) 13:31, September 30, 2014 (EDT)

In theory, it should automagically change when the wiki's clock hits midnight. However, if not... well, I have no idea as Jake seems to be out of contact... The Solar Dragon 13:35, September 30, 2014 (EDT)

Rabbi name[edit]

Can you figure out the name of the [:File:Rabbi Rutenstein.png|rabbi from "Clown in the Dumps"? --Fred (Talk Contribs. Editcount) 06:40, October 1, 2014 (EDT)

I'll have to rewatch it to know for sure. The Solar Dragon 07:34, October 1, 2014 (EDT)

Wikisimpsons Answers[edit]

Hey, for some reason I can't log in to Wikisimpsons Answers. I click "Login" and enter my username and password, but whenever I click "Login", it takes me back to the same page, but still not logged in? Any probs your end? (Is this a question I should be directing to Jake?) ~ Phinbart (talkcontribs) 11:35, October 1, 2014 (EDT)

Okay, I used to have this problem too. Are you using HTTPS on Wikisimpsons? There should be a box to tick to log in with it. It was a problem with that that wouldn't let me log in on both before, although it works now. Try logging in without it and seeing if there's any difference. If it works, try logging in again with HTTPS and seeing what happens. The Solar Dragon 11:37, October 1, 2014 (EDT)
There doesn't appear to be any HTTPS box on the login page, or am I being dumb? It's in the address bar though. ~ Phinbart (talkcontribs) 11:43, October 1, 2014 (EDT)
The box that says "Stay Connected to HTTPS after log in" or something like that. The Solar Dragon 11:44, October 1, 2014 (EDT)
Nope, nothing there except the login boxes, "This is a secure Wikisimpsons page. Your login information will be submitted securely." and "© 2014 Wikisimpsons The Simpsons® 20th Century Fox 0.000 secs" ~ Phinbart (talkcontribs) 11:47, October 1, 2014 (EDT)
Have you tried logging in via Wikisimpsons? Your account should be linked and it should log you in on Answers too. Log out of here and back in again. The Solar Dragon 11:50, October 1, 2014 (EDT)
Did that, now I can't login at all. Ticking HTTPS box or not ticking HTTPS box. 11:56, October 1, 2014 (EDT)
Okay, are you sure you're using the correct password? That's the only thing I can think of now... The Solar Dragon 11:57, October 1, 2014 (EDT)
Tested on Internet Explorer, works fine. Damn you, Firefox! ~ Phinbart (talkcontribs) 12:01, October 1, 2014 (EDT)
Okay, then I'd suggest clearing cache and cookies and seeing if that helps. The Solar Dragon 12:02, October 1, 2014 (EDT)
Cleared all history (don't know why it took so long), didn't click HTTPS box when logging in - perfecto! Now logged both on here and on Answers! Why my extensive history expanding into June had to create a problem like this I don't know. ~ Phinbart (talkcontribs) 12:29, October 1, 2014 (EDT)

30K Articles[edit]

Hi Solar! Now that we've got to 30k articles, I think that our Facebook & Twitter pages should be updated. I mean the description part of those pages where it says that Wikisimpsons has over 20.000/25.000 articles should say over 30.000 articles! / Loco87 (SimpsonsFT.pngSimpsonsFA.pngSimpsonsFL.pngSimpsonsFK.png / Contribs) 08:55, October 4, 2014 (EDT)

The Simpsons Guy trivia[edit]

Did you know that there was some controversy before the episode aired on Fox due to the rape joke Stewie Griffin used which the Parent's Televison Council, a long time critic of Family Guy tried to keep it from being aired with the rest of the episode. Here are a few sources that can verify this. [1][2]. 07:58, October 5, 2014 (EDT)

I've read about that. Add it to The Simpsons Guy/References if you want. / Loco87 (SimpsonsFT.pngSimpsonsFA.pngSimpsonsFL.pngSimpsonsFK.png / Contribs) 08:55, October 5, 2014 (EDT)


Hey Solar! After all this 'little' thing with Coolio I've thought that Wikisimpsons should have a Sourcing policy. What do you think about it? It's just an idea. I've created a provisional page for it. / Loco87 (SimpsonsFT.pngSimpsonsFA.pngSimpsonsFL.pngSimpsonsFK.png / Contribs) 17:00, October 8, 2014 (EDT)

I'm going to turn it into a whole sourcing and referencing policy, including in-universe information, how to reference, when referencing should be used, etc. The Solar Dragon 17:17, October 8, 2014 (EDT)
That's a good idea. You can use my provisional page if you want to start it off. / Loco87 (SimpsonsFT.pngSimpsonsFA.pngSimpsonsFL.pngSimpsonsFK.png / Contribs) 17:20, October 8, 2014 (EDT)
Already working on it. And I've finished it. Can you look through it to see if there's anything missing, maybe reword a few badly worded sections? I'm tired and slightly tipsy so I struggled to word some things. lol. The Solar Dragon 17:34, October 8, 2014 (EDT)
Everything OK. Should it be moved to a policy page (Wikisimpsons: prefix) or is it too soon? / Loco87 (SimpsonsFT.pngSimpsonsFA.pngSimpsonsFL.pngSimpsonsFK.png / Contribs) 18:05, October 8, 2014 (EDT)


I must report that user Coolio has once again been disruptive editing on the page Donnie Fatso/References, I have corrected the page but I thought it would be best to let you know. Bleedinggumsmurphy1 (talk) 02:11, October 9, 2014 (EDT)

People make edits like that all the time. People either don't pay attention to all the facts or think that things are more notable than they are. It's not disruptive editing and I will not block users for that. The Solar Dragon 04:39, October 9, 2014 (EDT)


I created a new article for the "Scary Movie" short's theater (refer to headline). It's my first time with a new location article on this wiki, so mistakes are to be expected. Gazlene the Pork Girl (talk) 11:46, October 11, 2014 (EDT)

It's pretty good apart from a couple of problems. I made the changes, as you can see here. The Solar Dragon 11:53, October 11, 2014 (EDT)
There's also the Re-Neducation Center article. It needs some layout fixing, but I can't figure out some of it... And are you sure that Theater is in Springfield? The shorts are known to not mention that location. Gazlene the Pork Girl (talk) 11:55, October 11, 2014 (EDT)
We assume all locations in the shorts, unless otherwise obvious, are in Springfield. The family have lived in Springfield their entire lives. So, yes, it was in Springfield. The Solar Dragon 11:57, October 11, 2014 (EDT)

I understand that I can't edit templates without your permission[edit]

Hi Solar! Now I understand that I can't edit Wikisimpsons templates, unless I get your permission to edit. I will not make mistakes anymore. Sometimes i edit the article several times because have an ortographic error. I was blocked 1 year in the Spanish Wikipedia. Today my account is unlocked. WikiAnthony is my Wikipedia account. First Wikipedia now Wikisimpsons, no please, I don't want to block. I will not make mistakes anymore. Greetings! --Barthony70099 Eat my shorts! Ay Caramba! 14:20, October 16, 2014 (EDT)

Firstly, I am not a dictator. It's not "my permission" you have to get, it's the community's. Secondly, that's what the preview button is for, not making errors. And to be honest, I think it's only a matter of time before you make one more mistake and get blocked. I hope I'm wrong, but I'm expecting to block you pretty soon. I don't want to block anybody, except spambots and vandals, but I have to spend a lot of time cleaning up after you. The Solar Dragon 14:31, October 16, 2014 (EDT)

Promo images' size[edit]

Hey Solar, I've lately noticed that you now upload new Promotional Images for new episodes with a huge size. I was wondering if it is because of the new "style" of FoxFlash? / Loco87 (SimpsonsFT.pngSimpsonsFA.pngSimpsonsFL.pngSimpsonsFK.png / Contribs) 15:50, October 18, 2014 (EDT)

Yes, they're the smallest I can download them as and I generally can't be bothered to resize them. :P The Solar Dragon 16:21, October 18, 2014 (EDT)

Wikisimpsons Answers[edit]

I hope I didn't break any rules by asking a fun slightly Halloween-themed question on Wikisimpsons Answers. It was a question, after all. No vulgar material. As for the Lizzie Borden article, how would you appropriately give the Wikipedia link? Gazlene the Pork Girl (talk) 14:34, October 29, 2014 (EDT)

We have the {{W}} template, which is used all over the wiki. However, I added it as an external link instead, using {{Wikipedialink}}. As for the question you asked, that's not the sort of question that should be asked on Answers, so I'll probably close it when sober. The Solar Dragon 14:46, October 29, 2014 (EDT)

Question About Personal Images[edit]

Excuse me, but why does one of AleWi's subpages have more than three images that aren't used on articles themselves, or even this subpage? Am I missing some information about the userpage image policy? Gazlene the Pork Girl (talk) 13:29, November 1, 2014 (EDT)

Pages that are intended to be mainspaced are exempt from the rule. Those both fall under that. The Solar Dragon 13:43, November 1, 2014 (EDT)
They don't quite belong in the mainspace, although they are informative. Is that an exception too? Gazlene the Pork Girl (talk) 10:59, November 4, 2014 (EST)


Did you say a while back you'd got in contact with David Silverman and he could answer any questions we had? If so, could you ask him about the untitled short that was storyboarded and never aired? Thanks, ~ Phinbart (talkcontribs) 06:41, November 2, 2014 (EST)

Also, completely unrelated, but how did you work out (for the UFO drops) the percentages from the chance value? Outerhaven's given me some statistics for Treat Bags and the like and can't remember how to work out the percentages from the chance value.

2 new promo pics for Simpsorama[edit]

Hi Solar! I've seen there are 2 new promo images in FoxFlash for Simpsorama. Could you upload them whenever you can? Thanks, / Loco87 (SimpsonsFT.pngSimpsonsFA.pngSimpsonsFL.pngSimpsonsFK.png / Contribs) 19:40, November 5, 2014 (EST)

I've already uploaded those files. But, could you get versions from the "Covercraft" promo pics with a proper size from FoxFlash? Thanks! / Loco87 (SimpsonsFT.pngSimpsonsFA.pngSimpsonsFL.pngSimpsonsFK.png / Contribs) 14:51, November 7, 2014 (EST)

Simpsons Wikia Plagarism[edit]

Hi, I was comparing this article (Hellroads student (4)) with Simpsons Wikia's article here. The content from the former was copied into the latter. Also compare:

It's unfair how their wiki is getting credit for this wiki's stolen content. I was hoping you can give feedback about this. Although the articles on Simpsons Wikia might be changed. And Treehouse of Horror XXV's article there is more informative than here, but not necessarily stolen. Work probably needs to be ramped up for that article. Gazlene the Pork Girl (talk) 01:22, November 8, 2014 (EST)

Added delete templates to the pages there, put edit summaries saying the content was stolen, and warned the user that stole it. The Solar Dragon 03:37, November 8, 2014 (EST)
Just came here to state this. There are several more now. Disgusting. --Fred (Talk Contribs.) 04:53, November 8, 2014 (EST)
This has really pissed me off. I have marked many for deletion, and have told the admin to delete the rest. The Solar Dragon 05:08, November 8, 2014 (EST)
If either of you wants to go through the user's contributions there and try to find all the articles she stole, and make a list somewhere, I can pass that onto the admin on the wiki. I would do, but as I said on Loco's talk page and on the top of my user and talk pages, I'm going semi-active now. Keep me informed of anything else I can do though, as this is a fairly serious issue. The Solar Dragon 16:20, November 8, 2014 (EST)
I'll probably go and check for more than just that. I didn't know it was this huge of a deal. I thought it was just a few articles. How come they are allowed to take our content if we're credited? (Source: RRabbit42's message wall). The quote:"The right move would have been to either delete the content, or have 'This content is from Wikisimpsons' and link to the article on the top of each page, where it's obvious".

As much as I hate to make this situation worse, another user has been copying our content. The history logs proves that our article came first. Gazlene the Pork Girl (talk) 17:05, November 8, 2014 (EST)
Could you go through their contributions too? I'm sorry but I've been going through some personal things recently so really don't feel up to doing it myself. The Solar Dragon 17:20, November 8, 2014 (EST)
Another one copied from our one. I think most of the articles by that user are stolen from here. / Loco87 (SimpsonsFT.pngSimpsonsFA.pngSimpsonsFL.pngSimpsonsFK.png / Contribs) 17:22, November 8, 2014 (EST)
What do you think I'm doing right now? :P I did get these plagiarized article titles:
  • Shaky Premise
  • Gunter (Mom and Pop Art)
  • Willie Mimms
  • Morbo (almost identical)
  • The Ancient Mystic Society of No Homers

Gazlene the Pork Girl (talk) 17:25, November 8, 2014 (EST)

I saw the Morbo article. It's not detailed enough to be counted as similar. And Loco, I also forwarded on that guy's name to RRabbit. Hopefully things will get sorted from there. And, good news, the first user, Tina, has agreed to stop. The Solar Dragon 17:29, November 8, 2014 (EST)

Encouraging Animation Domination Wikias to Leave the Site[edit]

You know how there is NIWA? I was wondering if we can encourage some communities on Wikia to independently host their animated wikis. In this specific instance I'm talking about Animation Domination wikis on ShoutWiki or independently hosted (e.g. Family Guy Wiki). I've noticed many wikis about animated shows yet to be independently hosted. I think we should encourage wikis like Family Guy Wiki to be independently hosted. I'm surprised it isn't independently hosted yet. It bothers me to see good wikis having article quality problems on Wikia since 2013 (at least that's when I turned on Wikia upon discovering ShoutWiki). The wikis I'm specifically referring to are FOX's animated TV shows, because a wiki affiliation like NIWA would be nice.

Any suggestions or comments? The wiki I mostly want to be independently hosted is South Park Archives, but it doesn't count as a FOX show. Since this is the Simpsons Wiki, I'm talking about Animation Domination wikis. I would quietly suggest this to them to circumvent Wikia staff. Gazlene the Pork Girl (talk) 13:58, November 9, 2014 (EST)

We had this idea ages ago, for an Animated Sitcom Wiki Alliance. Hell, we even had a website set up. However, it had difficulties taking off and we shut the project down. I don't think we'll try it again either in the future. It's too much work to get set up and I just don't have the time. The Solar Dragon 14:02, November 9, 2014 (EST)
What was the issue with the alliance? Gazlene the Pork Girl (talk) 14:04, November 9, 2014 (EST)
We just couldn't get enough support behind it. The Solar Dragon 14:14, November 9, 2014 (EST)

Just one little thing[edit]

Hey Solar! I know you told me you could not be much active these days, but I have to ask you something (that is not very important so take all the time you want to answer, it's not an urgent question so it would not matter if you took a long time to answer). And the question is: Should we consider This and This as confirmations of a Season 27? / Loco87 (SimpsonsFT.pngSimpsonsFA.pngSimpsonsFL.pngSimpsonsFK.png / Contribs) 19:21, November 13, 2014 (EST)

We should just wait until it is officially confirmed then create the article. Loco, perhaps you could create a user subpage for the time being. --Fred (Talk Contribs.) 08:48, November 14, 2014 (EST)
I will! / Loco87 (SimpsonsFT.pngSimpsonsFA.pngSimpsonsFL.pngSimpsonsFK.png / Contribs) 08:56, November 14, 2014 (EST)
I think that if Al Jean said it, then it's going to happen. However, I think an official announcement should happen before we make the article. The Solar Dragon 04:32, November 15, 2014 (EST)

I didn't knew that it violated the Naming policy[edit]

Hi Solar!. I'm Barthony70099!. Sorry for evade the blockade, but I didn't knew that put "Dr." on a name, violates the Naming policy. Also I didn't even know existed such policies. It seems unfair to block me, It was not my intention to violate the naming policy, I didn't know there was such a policy. I promise not make nonsense editions anymore. I hope that you unblock me. The blockade is unfair, I didn't even know existed the Naming policy of Wikisimpsons. Really it's true that the character Elmer Hartman from Family Guy was named after animator Butch Hartman, who is a friend of Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane. But this is a Simpsons Wiki, not a Family Guy Wiki, and can't put that edition, unless in a Family Guy wiki. Greetings! -- 16:34, November 16, 2014 (EST)

I didn't just block you for that one thing. I blocked you for everything mentioned on your talk page. You've been blocked a couple of times before for various reasons, mainly breaking policies. A lot of your edits, well over 50% of them, usually get reverted or are needed to be cleaned up for various reasons. You cause a lot more problems than you solve. I'm sick of having to clean up after your edits. I considered blocking you indefinitely. However, I decided against it. If you come back after 6 months, I'll be a lot more strict with you. Do one thing that breaks policies or counts as a stupid edit, and I will block you indefinitely. You have 6 months to read over the policies. The Solar Dragon 16:48, November 16, 2014 (EST)
6 months to read the policies and edit as an IP but make it blatantly obvious who it is. | SimpsonsFR.pngSimpsonsFA.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFD.pngSimpsonsFO.pngSimpsonsFM.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFO.png | Talk | Contributions | Edit count | 17:00, November 16, 2014 (EST)
Until May 2015, I will can upload more new images. The blockade had been 1 week, 1 month, but 6 months, can't upload more new images. Considers that in december is christmas, and i will pass the christmas and new year blocked. My intention was to improve the article, not violate the Wikisimpsons policy, I did'nt even knew to put "Dr." on a name, violated the Naming policies. First christmas with a Wikisimpsons account blocked. Being blocked on Wikisimpsons for 6 months, it's like if the police arrest you and gets you to jail for 6 months. =( And I read the naming policies. I promise to respect it. -- 17:08, November 16, 2014 (EST)
Okay, let's look at what you did wrong between your last and current blocks:
Template edits: Editing widely used templates, fucking up the layout of them, and leaving them.
Promo images: Converting promo images into .png and adding low quality images categories to them, despite being previously warned about it.
Really?: Adding a stupid point to a references article. Not using common sense. Not doing any kind of research at all to see how common a name Johnson is.
Block 3: Your third block. After you renamed an article, making it against the naming policy, and added information unrelated to The Simpsons to an article.
Those things, and all the things you did to receive previous blocks, are why I've blocked you for so long. You don't think. You don't use common sense. And you don't listen. Therefore, you will be sitting out your 6 month block. You're just lucky it's not longer. The Solar Dragon 17:31, November 16, 2014 (EST)

Christmas-themed featured stuff[edit]

Hi Solar. This is not something urgent (right now). Some days ago you asked me if I could find christmas-themed featured stuff for next month and I found (or better say uploaded) a good picture and found an xmas-themed episode that fits well. However, I haven't found a proper christmas-related article to get featured (those ones I've nominated fit more as Comprehensive articles). So, is there any article you could think of to be featured next month. (I've also said this on the article nomination page just in case someone thinks of one article and wants to nominate it.) Thanks! / Loco87 (SimpsonsFT.pngSimpsonsFA.pngSimpsonsFL.pngSimpsonsFK.png / Contribs) 17:46, November 16, 2014 (EST)

If we can't find anything, we could always re-feature something. However, I think there is great potential in the Funzo article, if it's expanded on a lot. There should be enough information about them to make a featured worthy article. Also, we have the Christmas article, which does need a lot of work. Santa Claus was featured last year, I think. It could be re-featured if need be. The Solar Dragon 17:50, November 16, 2014 (EST)
I will try to work those articles up during this week as this week I'm not as busy as I was last week. / Loco87 (SimpsonsFT.pngSimpsonsFA.pngSimpsonsFL.pngSimpsonsFK.png / Contribs) 18:13, November 16, 2014 (EST)
I've worked on the Christmas article and I've improved it a lot but I think it could still be even more improved, but I can't see it clearly. Any Ideas? By the way, I've nominated it to Featured Article. Take all the time you need to answer, it's not urgent.

Hi Solar! I was blocked "forever", according with the administrators in the Spanish Wikipedia for vandalism, but 1 year later, i was unlocked. Now blocked forever in Wikisimpsons infinite. No, please, the previous blocked (6 months) was better. I swear waiting until may, give me another chance. I'm crying for my poor Wikisimpsons account. Banned after 2 years editing here in Wikisimpsons. Please, please please, give me another chance.

Promo Images for I Won't Be Home for Christmas[edit]

Hi Solar, there are 4 promo pics for IWBHFC in FoxFlash. Could you upload them whenever you can. Thanks! / Loco87 (SimpsonsFT.pngSimpsonsFA.pngSimpsonsFL.pngSimpsonsFK.png / Contribs) 10:40, November 25, 2014 (EST)

All uploaded. I'll let you sort out what needs to be done. The Solar Dragon 16:34, November 25, 2014 (EST)

No Image UK[edit]

I understand why you added that, but it blocks of all of the images that exists after 100 issues. (So there is a picture for #100 as there is for #130, but it only shows pictures up to #100, even though picture #130 exists). Please could you remove the 'no image' sign for any pictures (such as #130) and just keep it for issues such as #120 where there is no image. Besides, the red writing allows users to install pictures to fill it in. 08:10, November 27, 2014 (EST)

I just checked, the image for #130 doesn't exist. The Solar Dragon 08:17, November 27, 2014 (EST)

Simpsons Comics UK Series 'No Image Available'[edit]

Hi Solar Dragon! I have come up with an alternative to the 'No Image Available' sign on the UK Comics page. (You can see it on the page: Simpsons Comics UK series ). I would appreciate it if you took the 'no image available' sign of the page, as it blocks pictures which exist after the first 100 issues. I have uploaded most of the comic front covers now, but until then, any non-existen pictures will be replaced by my sign. This also replaces the red hyperlink, and it allows any uploaded pictures to be seen.

Thanks for your help so far, and the Simpsons Comics UK pages are gradually developing well.

JThomas (talk) 11:19, November 27, 2014 (EST)JThomas

Okay, no, it doesn't stop the images from appearing after the first 100 issues. I've done searches, none of the images exist! Therefore, the no image available image shows up. Check out Special:UnusedFiles, they're all there, unused on any page. You need to make sure the image names are the exact same as the images links, otherwise they won't show up.

Banjo-Kazooie Wikia Fork[edit]

You know Toomai, right? Have you ever asked him to fork Banjo-Kazooie Wikia over to ShoutWiki? I know this is a little off-topic and I apologize for it, but it's easier to edit wikis outside of Wikia. Gazlene the Pork Girl (talk) 13:02, November 27, 2014 (EST)

I don't know him that well, and I'm no longer really a member of SmashWiki. I edit very rarely now and I no longer feel all that welcome there. So, no, I haven't asked him. The Solar Dragon 13:04, November 27, 2014 (EST)

Donut bullet points[edit]

Hi Solar, I've just realized that the donut bullet points are gone (in the default skin) and we now have normal bullet points. Is there any way to fix it? / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 11:41, December 2, 2014 (EST)

Just done a quick hack to get them in. Should be fine from now. The Solar Dragon 12:15, December 2, 2014 (EST)
Actually, that was my fault. Putting in the donuts like that using http:// in the CSS file violates our site's SSL certificate. The protocol ambiguous // should be used instead when linking images in CSS. I tried fixing this yesterday but I made a small mistake in the coding that caused the donuts to disappear.

I realized about 60 seconds after I wrote it, that the shirt did say homer on it. I was going to go back and remove it but you beat me to it. Thanks. PS, are there any images that need to be added that are from older seasons (1-14) as I can help with images. All my episode images are from the original airing (like in 'A Star is Born Again' the original mentioning of Hepburn is said) --Mcdude man (talk) 08:25, December 11, 2014 (EST)

There probably are some but to be honest, the images you have been uploading are pretty low quality. We have access to DVD quality versions of episodes from seasons 1-16. If you have an email registered here, I can set you up with access to these episodes. For free. We only offer this to editors though. The Solar Dragon 08:35, December 11, 2014 (EST)

My email is registered and that would be awesome. Sorry about the lower quality, they were all original airing recordings done on VHS. If you could set me up with the HQ versions, I would gladly replace the images. --Mcdude man (talk) 08:44, December 11, 2014 (EST)

Preview Button Talk[edit]

Hi, what happened there with the Preview Button page? I put the text on AleWi's talk page instead so it doesn't show up there, but that was... weird? please enlight me :) This is weirder!

Episode Scripts[edit]

Hi Solar. I've just uploaded to Wikisimpsons' Google Drive some episode scripts I've found through the net. They are mainly the scripts from all the season 25 episodes (except from SABF18-The Yellow Badge of Cowardge) and a couple more scripts from other seasons I've found. There might be useful information in those scripts. You may want to look them. / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 10:01, December 14, 2014 (EST)

I'm looking at them now. Could help with character name spellings etc. Thanks! The Solar Dragon 10:08, December 14, 2014 (EST)

Season 26[edit]

Hello :)

Here is the proof that Bart's New Friend will air on January 11th 2015.


Have a nice day :)

Okay, thank you. I'll make the changes. The Solar Dragon 08:53, December 17, 2014 (EST)
Hi Solar, I've just seen there are new promo pics in FoxFlash. They are from "Bart's New Friend". I don't know why, but they seem to have skipped the promo pics for "TMWCTBD". So, could you upload them. I could add the licensing and categories if you are busy. / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 09:59, December 17, 2014 (EST)
Okay, on it now. Need a break from coursework anyway. lol The Solar Dragon 10:01, December 17, 2014 (EST)
And now there are the promo pics for The Man Who Came To Be Dinner in FoxFlash! / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 15:21, December 17, 2014 (EST)

South Park Archives Might Move to ShoutWiki[edit]

Hey Solar, I'm letting you know that I helped South Park Wikia to consider moving to ShoutWiki. Because you're one of the staff members at ShoutWiki, would you be willing to move the wiki if the community finally comes to a conclusion to move it?

Link to thread: http://southpark.wikia.com/wiki/Thread:67539

Gazlene the Pork Girl (talk) 16:39, December 20, 2014 (EST)

I'm afraid I've been an inactive staff member there for months now. You should use Special:Contact on ShoutWiki to send in a support ticket. The other staff members can then help you from there. The Solar Dragon 16:49, December 20, 2014 (EST)

The Simpsons Movie/Appearances[edit]

Hi Solar, I've seen you created a page similar to what I suggested. That's great, but I would also include in the rules on the talk page that when suggesting additions, users should also say where/in which moment of the movie does the suggested character/media/location/... appear. Doing that would allow us to check the suggested additions without having to watch the full movie. / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 06:26, December 23, 2014 (EST)

Okay, I'll add a few more rules in. I've been thinking of more. The Solar Dragon 07:03, December 23, 2014 (EST)

"Twitter" article link[edit]

Hi Solar, I've just noticed that in the category page that you've created some hours ago happens that this: All users with [[Twitter]]. appears like this All users with . And if you look in this message it happens the same: Twitter. The link doesn't appear. What might happen?? / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 17:32, December 24, 2014 (EST)

Can you give me a print screen? It looks fine to me. I see the links fine. The Solar Dragon 17:41, December 24, 2014 (EST)
I've just found out the problem. I use Google Chrome and I have the AdBlocker extension and it is the reason for not seeing the link. So, nothing to worry about! :P / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 17:44, December 24, 2014 (EST)

Don't forget[edit]

Hey Solar in wikisimpsons:the simpsons movie appearances. Not to be rude but you forgot a lot of characters. In the Characters from move to church scene you forgot to add almost every character in the list. can you please add them before Febuary. Thanks for reading. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Homer24 (talkcontribs) 19:59, December 28, 2014

I didn't forget them. It was late and I was too tired to add any more. You do know it's not an easy task. It's long and boring. Plus, the more you pester me about it, the less I want to do it. I'm doing it at my own pace, bit by bit. Okay? The Solar Dragon 02:05, December 29, 2014 (EST)

Krusty Doll[edit]

Hey Solar,
Thanks for the fix. Originally when I tried putting in the category link for toy, it didn't show up, instead it added the category to the page instead of showing the link.
Do you think the article is still a stub? It's ok if you do, I am just wondering (it is pretty cluttered with notices). Anyway I have been expanding it quite a bit and will continue to do so. And if there is anything else that could use some work I would be happy to assist as best I can.
Thanks again --Mcdude man (talk) 09:11, December 30, 2014 (EST)

Featured Poll[edit]

Hi Solar! Is there a chance you can choose the Featured Poll for this month. There are lots of ideas in that page and the rules say you have the final say on them. Thanks! / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 14:32, January 3, 2015 (EST)

You can go ahead and choose the poll. I should also update the rules too. The Solar Dragon 15:04, January 3, 2015 (EST)

Splash Screens[edit]

Hi, I saw you protected the main page (for obvious reasons). Hope the contribution of the splash screens is good. please don't kill me cause i made the 3 edits, but after a night of searching and editing to do this on topix, it was 8am and my eyes were shutting down. Hope it's a good gallery addition to the page! LetsPlayNintendoITA (talk) 01:52, January 8, 2015 (EST)

We already have most of the splash screens around the wiki actually... There probably wasn't any need to upload those... I'll try and locate the old images and replace them in a few days if no one has done so already. The Solar Dragon 05:07, January 8, 2015 (EST)

"Bart's New Friend" director[edit]

Hi Solar. What's the source for Bob Anderson being the director of "BNF"? You forgot to add it. / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 15:40, January 11, 2015 (EST)

David Silverman on Twitter. I just thought since it was airing tonight, it'd be unnecessary to source it so close to airing. We'd just forget to remove the source again afterwards. lol The Solar Dragon 15:46, January 11, 2015 (EST)
Ok. Before writing the other message I checked all the Simpsons-related staff Twitter accounts to see if it was said by one of them. The only one I actually didn't check was Silverman's. Anyway, I agree with the point that the episode airs in a few hours so there's no need to add the source just to remove it some time after. So, ok. / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 17:21, January 11, 2015 (EST)

Crossing off task from the to-do list[edit]

Hi Solar, I was just wondering when does a page qualify to be crossed off from the to-do list? I've been working on the pages for Legs and Louie, both of which were on the list to just 'Improve'. I've completed their list of episode/game appearances, re-organized some profile bio, added some trivia and added references. I'm still going over all their appearances in books and comics (which will take longer than a week since there's so many out there...but I'm always creeping on the mafia characters' pages on a regular basis anyway lol). Mrs JohnnyTightlips (talk) 04:20, January 12, 2015 (EST)

Could probably do with a "History" section like many other characters, listing important events they have taken part in. Cameos shouldn't be included in this. The Solar Dragon 04:40, January 12, 2015 (EST)

The "someone left a message in your talk page" message is gone[edit]

Hi Solar! I've just noticed that a user left a message in my talk page but the message that appears when someone leaves a message in your talk page didn't show up.(The one with the "clouds" background). Is it because of the MediaWiki upgrade?? Is it happening to you too? / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 16:05, January 13, 2015 (EST)

My guess is it's because of the upgrade. You now get a notification between your user and talk page links at the top of the page (the number goes up depending on the amount of notifications you have). Best to ask Jake if he can bring back the old notification as well, as it's better and more noticeable in my opinion. The Solar Dragon 16:07, January 13, 2015 (EST)
I asked Jake but he didn't answer the main question (if the old notification could be brought back). It was more noticeable and I think that it was more visible than "the one there is now", which is hardly noticeable. And if users (basically new ones or those with very little experience) make mistakes and we alert them on their talk pages, they won't easily see the notification (or they won't see it at all) and they would continue making those mistakes. Things like that could happen. We ought to bring back the old one (The one with the "clouds" background). / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 13:58, January 29, 2015 (EST)
I've been searching on Google and the MediaWiki website for a fix to this, or even just a mention of it... I can't find anything... The Solar Dragon 14:14, January 29, 2015 (EST)


Hi Solar. Are you able to see the countdown in the sitenotice. Because I'm not. I've checked if it could be due to the ad-blocker, but it's not. Can this be related to the MediaWiki upgrade? / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 11:55, January 16, 2015 (EST)

Best to ask Jake about this. I'm working on something else right now so I can't look into this just yet. It disappeared right after the upgrade though so I guess it's to do with that. The Solar Dragon 12:28, January 16, 2015 (EST)


Hey Solar, I got your email just so you know. Anyway, I checked FoxFlash and three promotional images for "The Musk Who Fell To Earth" (TABF04) have been released. Thanks! --Fred (Talk Contribs.) 20:43, January 16, 2015 (EST)

Blog roles[edit]

Hi, I see the blog's finally set up. In terms of blog roles, will we hold a consensus where everyone chooses, or, something else? Thanks. (P.S. I'd quite like to post on Tapped Out) ~ Phinbart (talkcontribs) 06:14, January 17, 2015 (EST)

At the moment, it's everyone posts what they want to post. If we end up getting some sort of clashes along the way with people trying to post the same content, then we'll sort out some sort of roles. In the meantime, can you save as drafts and I'll publish. I don't think everyone posting blog posts at the same time would be that beneficial. lol. I'm trying to spread them out a bit over the day. The Solar Dragon 06:18, January 17, 2015 (EST)
Is there any way to view the amount of readers we get a day? I know that's possible because of my old blogs. ~ Phinbart (talkcontribs) 12:23, January 17, 2015 (EST)
You should have access to the site statistics in your Piwik account. If not, let me know and I can set it up. --Jake 23:00, January 31, 2015 (EST)

I learned my lesson. I will respect the Wikisimpsons policies[edit]

Hi Solar! You remember me? I'm Barthony70099. I was blocked infinite. But I am an apprentice user, even though my account was created in 2012. I read all Wikisimpsons policies and i swear respect it and never violate it. Really i miss the old times, when i was uploading images in Wikisimpsons. When i was blocked, I didn't knew some policies. Please Solar, unblock me. All I ask is one more chance. -- 16:10, January 19, 2015 (EST)

*slowly applauds* Well done on violating a policy in asking me to unblock you. "All I ask is one more chance." I gave you half a dozen "one more chances". I was lenient on you for some reason. Other users, I would have blocked a long time ago. However, you seemed eager to help out, which is why I let you stick around. However, it ended up with me having to cleanup your messes more often than you helping the wiki. You had many reverted edits, you broke pretty much every single policy on the wiki, except maybe a few. You broke more policies than any other user. I got sick and tired of having to clean up after your edits. Also, I've been going through a few problems over the last few months, with stress, depression and other mental issues. Having to deal with you every other day was making me worse. So, no, you aren't going to be unblocked. Not now, not ever. The Solar Dragon 16:19, January 19, 2015 (EST)

New Promo pics[edit]

Hi Solar. I've just seen there are new promo pics for "The Musk Who Fell To Earth" and "Walking Big & Tall" in FoxFlash. Could you upload them whenever you can? I've found the images for TMWFTE in a website and I've uploaded them but I think they have a low quality. Re-upload them if you want. / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 13:33, January 24, 2015 (EST)

Hello Barthony. Despite all my attempts to get you to leave the wiki, you still appear to be here, annoying us. I have changed the password to the Drive account. You will not be getting the new password. You are no longer a user here. Nor are you welcome here any more. You have been a pain in the neck for me for ages now. YOU ARE BANNED FROM THE WIKI!

Hi Solar, Al Jean stated in Twitter that Al Brooks would be guest starring in an episode airing on May 10. And he said that the title of the episode was "BULL=E". But he later said it was "BULL*E". I guess that the title is a pun on the Pixar's film WALL·E(which is written both "WALL·E" and "WALL-E"). So, which title should be accept as the official one? / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 16:28, February 1, 2015 (EST)

Use either one for now. Once official episode name comes out on FoxFlash or something similar, we can move it. The Solar Dragon 16:31, February 1, 2015 (EST)


I'm pretty that was Wolfcastle and not Mr. Mackleberry, if you look at Mr. Mackleberry's picture he is clearly different. Rainier Wolfcastle.png Sherri and Terri's father.png Bleedinggumsmurphy1 (talk) 13:54, February 9, 2015 (EST)

Comprehensive, you just chose an already comprehensive article that hasn't been added to the main page yet. Check the boxes on the talk pages.

Simpsons World episode guide characters[edit]

Would it be worth while adding Simpsons World the Ultimate Episode Guide: Seasons 1-20 in the appearances section of characters who didn't have fact files but still appeared in other pictures and framegrabs? e.g. Ms. Melon and Adil. Bleedinggumsmurphy1 (talk) 13:43, April 7, 2015 (EDT)

I thought about that in the past but I don't think we should do so. There will be too many minor appearances. I think factfiles only will be the best. The Solar Dragon 14:19, April 7, 2015 (EDT)
