Promo Pics[edit]

Hi Solar, there are new pics in FoxFlash. One (the couch gag one) is from "The Kids Are All Fight" and the other 5 are from "Let's Go Fly a Coot". Any chance you could upload them soon? / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 14:18, April 24, 2015 (EDT)

All uploaded. The Solar Dragon 14:32, April 24, 2015 (EDT)
Uh, the couch gas was The game of life (again) not that one. Pheraps the couch gag picture was also from Lets go fly a coot? LetsPlayNintendoITA (talk) 23:56, April 26, 2015 (EDT)
There are 3 promo pics for "Bull-E" in FoxFlash! Could you upload them as soon as you can? Thanks! / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 07:50, May 2, 2015 (EDT)
Uploaded. The Solar Dragon 09:42, May 2, 2015 (EDT)
Thanks! There's still one S26 episode without promotional images. I hope they will upload them in FoxFlash in a week from now. / Loco87 (Talk / Contribs) 10:14, May 2, 2015 (EDT)
Hi Solar, there are 5 pics for the season 26 finale(Mathlete's Feat) in FoxFlash(right under the ones from Let's Go Fly a Coot)! / Loco87 (Talk / Contribs) 08:29, May 8, 2015 (EDT)

Hi Solar! I've just uploaded the first promo pics of season 27. I'm still in holidays so it is impossible for me to make a blog post about them. (I'm surprised I managed to upload the pictures) Could you do it? Thanks. Now that I have a FoxFlash account I'll bother you less with the promo pics thing. / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 10:24, September 2, 2015 (EDT)

Talk page messages and warnings[edit]

Hi Solar. It's been about four months since the "clouds-background" talk page notification "disappeared". And the current notification system it's a bit "inefficient". It is not as visible as the clouds one, which causes users (specially new users) to ignore other users' messages or Admin warnings. My question is: Isn't there any chance to bring the clouds notification back?

What do you think? Could that work? / Loco87 (Talk / Contribs) 19:20, May 2, 2015 (EDT)

Okay, message me again and let's test this to see if it works. The Solar Dragon 19:46, May 2, 2015 (EDT)
Has it worked? / Loco87 (Talk / Contribs) 19:54, May 2, 2015 (EDT)
Nope. Also tried navigating pages to see if it would show. Nothing. It's getting late and I have coursework and exam revision to do tomorrow so I won't be able to look into it. I'll keep checking the wiki though so if you have any ideas, feel free to put them into action. The Solar Dragon 19:57, May 2, 2015 (EDT)

Two-seasons renewal[edit]

Hi, I was wondering if we should create an article for S28 (knowing the show has been renewed for S27 and S28) ??/ Loco87 (Talk / Contribs) 18:15, May 4, 2015 (EDT)

Hmm. I guess we could make an article with the announcement info. The Solar Dragon 18:17, May 4, 2015 (EDT)
I've just made it. I think that when the shows was renewed through S24 and 25, despite not being registered in the wiki yet, I saw the S25 page. / Loco87 (Talk / Contribs) 18:30, May 4, 2015 (EDT)

Bull-E x2 new promo pics[edit]

hey man, Homer to the Max posted 2 new promo pics (thumbnails) for the episode. Can you post them normal? thanks :) LetsPlayNintendoITA (talk) 15:07, May 5, 2015 (EDT)

Low quality images[edit]

Hi Solar. I'm going to spend a lot of time this summer dealing with Low quality images. So, please, could you wait until I'll have lowered the number of pictures in the category to 150 (or so) images. Thanks! The category is getting flooded with images. Also, please don't add anymore S18 and S19 images to the category for now. Those seasons are not being released in DVD or Blu-Ray so it will take me a considerable amount of time to find a way to have those images in a decent quality. Thanks! / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 08:39, June 16, 2015 (EDT)

Well, I don't really pay attention to what seasons an image belongs to. If it's of terrible quality, I add it to the category. I'll leave it for now though then. The Solar Dragon 08:48, June 16, 2015 (EDT)

FOX about the Homer and Marge Split Up rumor[edit]

Looks like they posted a video about it just now. maybe you can add it to the articles? ;) Youtube favicon.png Homer And Marge, Together Forever at YouTube LetsPlayNintendoITA (talk) 18:13, June 19, 2015 (EDT)

I'm on it now! Also, there's the {{Youtube}} template for it. / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 18:25, June 19, 2015 (EDT)
yeah i know but since it's not an article i figured to use the quicker template of links without finding the youtube thing again xD. Is there a way to get an email when a new article on the springfield shopper? I was talking about this article Homer and Marge Are NOT Breaking Up For Good!!! LetsPlayNintendoITA (talk) 18:36, June 19, 2015 (EDT)
I've made a Blog Post

and all you have to do is to fill the empty boxes in this page and you'll receive notifications! / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 20:16, June 19, 2015 (EDT)

I'm blind apparently cause i didn't see that lol thanks LetsPlayNintendoITA (talk) 20:20, June 19, 2015 (EDT)
You're welcome! / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 20:28, June 19, 2015 (EDT)

Unregistered IPs can vote?[edit]

So, Unregistered IPs can vote in Featured content nominations? They only can't vote in user rights nominations? / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 19:32, June 22, 2015 (EDT)

Yeah. Nothing wrong with them voting in featured nominations. The Solar Dragon 03:30, June 23, 2015 (EDT)
Ok. / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 07:04, June 23, 2015 (EDT)

Featured Polls[edit]

Hi Solar. Does it matter if a Featured Poll has more than 5 options?? I've come up with a good poll idea for next month but it would have 7 options. / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 07:20, June 28, 2015 (EDT)

Well, it was mainly a way of saving space and not having the column expand too much. 7 options should be okay. The Solar Dragon 07:21, June 28, 2015 (EDT)

An answer to a question[edit]

Hi Solar! Do you know the answer to this question in Answers? / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 07:55, July 1, 2015 (EDT)

Nope. Can't think of what it would be. Only thing I can think of is that episode when they crashed a funeral to eat free food, and then all put on sad faces. But I think Homer was also sad. The Solar Dragon 07:59, July 1, 2015 (EDT)
I've thought about that one and Amber's funeral, but I think that Homer just slept in that one. / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 08:49, July 1, 2015 (EDT)
What about that funeral that also had that hotdog vendor that was following Homer around? --Nick97 (talk ~ contribs) 13:12, July 1, 2015 (EDT)
Not that one. (Btw, the one Nick says is Bleeding Gums Murphy's funeral ('Round Springfield)). / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 14:20, July 1, 2015 (EDT)

UK Comics[edit]

Why are you reverting a few of my edits on the UK simpsons comics they were wrong —Preceding unsigned comment added by Alicia (talkcontribs) 16:34, July 7, 2015

Your edits seemed more wrong than what we had already. Plus, most of the info was added by long time users. The Solar Dragon 16:37, July 7, 2015 (EDT)

More wrong ahahaha I'm Pretty sure I know a lot more about UK comics than you and some other people do I have every UK and US Simpsons Comic

For example the treehouse of horror issues issue no 2 is not issue 98 etc

issue no 2 is simpsons comic 20 issue no 3 is simpsons comic 33 issue no 4 is simpsons comic 46 issue no 5 is simpsons comic 59 etc

New Season 27 trailer[edit]

THE SIMPSONS | Trumptastic Voyage | ANIMATION on FOX —Preceding unsigned comment added by LetsPlayNintendoITA (talkcontribs) 22:07, July 7, 2015‎ In Season 27 one of the things is that Homer is going to vote. Is it possible this is a preview of that episode? LetsPlayNintendoITA (talk) 08:09, July 8, 2015 (EDT)

No, this is a one off special. Although it could be included in that episode in some way. The Solar Dragon 08:14, July 8, 2015 (EDT)
Also, the USA presidential election are happening in Fall 2016, so Homer will probably vote in one of the early season 28 episodes. / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 09:23, July 8, 2015 (EDT)

Uploading picture on the blog[edit]

Httperror.png uh what? (I'm trying to upload a 1.06 MB picture). also why can't i select to use thumbnails instead of full size pictures like i can in Topix? LetsPlayNintendoITA (talk) 10:10, July 8, 2015 (EDT)

I don't know. I always use images already online, I don't use the upload image feature. The Solar Dragon 10:30, July 8, 2015 (EDT)
the problem is with Tapped Out pictures they're too big for the article so i use the upload future for them but if they're too big that happens let's see if Loco knows LetsPlayNintendoITA (talk) 10:33, July 8, 2015 (EDT)
Try to use the images already uploaded in Wikisimpsons. Just go to the file's page and click the image, then you'll have the url of the image in wikisimpsons. / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 10:41, July 8, 2015 (EDT)
I can't resize them that way though LetsPlayNintendoITA (talk) 10:42, July 8, 2015 (EDT)
Then add width="250" height="250" or something like that in the <img> tag. / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 10:47, July 8, 2015 (EDT)
Or if you have the images in your computer you could resize them with paint or something like that and then upload them in the blog or in imgur. Then you would have them in the size you want. / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 10:49, July 8, 2015 (EDT)
Ok done. LetsPlayNintendoITA (talk) 10:54, July 8, 2015 (EDT)
That shouldn't happen. Can you link me to the image you were trying to upload so I can investigate? And as the others have said, you should always try to use our existing images whenever possible because there's a limited amount of disk space available for new WordPress uploads. Normally it is in bad taste to link images across websites because of bandwidth costs, but since I pay for the bandwidth either way it's okay to do so in this case. --Jake 09:06, July 9, 2015 (EDT)
Community Prizes Screen I was trying to upload the old version of this one. yeah i agree it's better to use the wiki files if there's a limit. I thought there wasn't or something cause on topix it says there's a limit of space in TSS it doesn't show up. LetsPlayNintendoITA (talk) 09:40, July 9, 2015 (EDT)
Not sure what the issue could have been. I just managed to upload it without any problems. Let me know if any other images do this in the future. (On my talk page.) And about the limit, Topix is a Wordpress.com site so they have an upload cap set by Wordpress.com that (I assume) they can pay to upgrade. That's why you can see the limit when uploading on Topix. Our site doesn't have a cap like that, but we are of course limited by the physical amount of space on the server which you can't see from within Wordpress. --Jake 12:09, July 19, 2015 (EDT)
you uploaded the 72kb new version, the old one is 1 MB big and that's the one that doesnt upload. yeah i imagined that's the reason topix has. it's funny cause we've so much space (13 GB) but we're using so few (1.3) lol LetsPlayNintendoITA (talk) 12:22, July 19, 2015 (EDT)
Ok, I tried it again with the larger file and got the same error you did. I've increased the upload file limit to 10MB which seems to resolve the issue. --Jake 17:23, July 19, 2015 (EDT)
Yea it seems to work LetsPlayNintendoITA (talk) 18:56, July 19, 2015 (EDT)

Having Image Issues[edit]

https://simpsonswiki.com/w/index.php?title=List_of_Simpsons_Comics_in_the_UK&diff=694479&oldid=693038

Why Does images of the issues above 111 not show in the latest revision and how to fix? Thanks Alicia (talk) 05:32, July 22, 2015 (EDT)

I'm not entirely sure why they're not showing up. They should do. I'll try and fix it and see what happens. The Solar Dragon 05:46, July 22, 2015 (EDT)
I removed the ifexist in the template that was only supposed to show the "No Image Available" image if the comic image didn't exist. This shouldn't have been happening and I don't know why it was but it should be fixed now. The Solar Dragon 05:50, July 22, 2015 (EDT)

Ahh I see, Thank!! Alicia (talk) 05:51, July 22, 2015 (EDT)

A diff that should be hidden[edit]

Hi Solar, could you hide/delete this Spam diff?. Thanks! / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 07:23, July 27, 2015 (EDT)

I did so before you left this message. lol The Solar Dragon 07:25, July 27, 2015 (EDT)

Hi[edit]

i'd love to sign up but i can't or say why71.162.155.239 18:26, July 27, 2015 (EDT)

sorry if i sound rude71.162.155.239 18:29, July 27, 2015 (EDT)
What problem do you have exactly? / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 18:50, July 27, 2015 (EDT)

well first i need to know something wikipedia says an ip address can track you down is this true or did i misread71.162.155.239 21:19, July 27, 2015 (EDT)

Use this link to sign up. Your IP address is unnecessary for the sign up process, and you already know it (it's 71.162.155.239). Fill out all the parts of the form and enter the correct CAPTCHA and you'll be able to sign up. The Solar Dragon 06:06, July 28, 2015 (EDT)

well still i want to know can an ip address track your location?--71.162.155.239 13:01, August 11, 2015 (EDT)

Try Google. The Solar Dragon 13:02, August 11, 2015 (EDT)

sorry, but what do you mean--71.162.155.239 13:04, August 11, 2015 (EDT)

Just search "IP Locator" in Google and visit the results of the search. I'm 99.9% sure that one of the first pages will be a page in which you can find where an IP is located. / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 13:13, August 11, 2015 (EDT)
"sorry, but what do you mean". Google is a search engine. Typing things in there leads to a wealth of information about any subject you can think of. The Solar Dragon 13:20, August 11, 2015 (EDT)

shoulda been more specific. i know what google is, i just want to know what to search. Loco, i want to know if my ip can trace my location. again, sorry if i sound rude--71.162.155.239 13:28, August 11, 2015 (EDT)

The Simpsons: Celebrity Friends[edit]

[File:Credits Friends.png I'm uploading the episodes to the drive./AleWi (talk) 14:17, August 1, 2015 (EDT)

Are the credits actually viewable? All the ones I found online were the same episode from the Swedish 6 channel with subtitles. The credits then shrank to a tiny, non-viewable format. And do you have all three of them? The Solar Dragon 14:19, August 1, 2015 (EDT)
It's not shrank, only voiceover./AleWi (talk) 14:21, August 1, 2015 (EDT)
Done, https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B8dMfK3FjdqCaUUtZVI4SWFQaHc /AleWi (talk) 14:26, August 1, 2015 (EDT)
Do you also have Access All Areas? There's only 2 in the Drive. The Solar Dragon 14:41, August 1, 2015 (EDT)
Never mind, it's there now. The Solar Dragon 14:42, August 1, 2015 (EDT)

Creating a Category?[edit]

How do I go about creating a category? In this particular case (file name: Greetings_from_the_Simpsons_2007.jpg), for images? Sorry to bother you, but I think a crazy week at work is making my brain denser than usual. :-) -- Mythigator (talk) 08:08, August 5, 2015 (EDT)

Just create a new page called "Category:Images - Greetings from the Simpsons (2007)‎" and put some info there./AleWi (talk) 09:02, August 5, 2015 (EDT)
I already tried that and it didn't work, which is why I asked the question in the first place. I was wondering if there was some step in the process that I was missing? -- Mythigator (talk) 10:23, August 5, 2015 (EDT)
Should be possible to just create the page at Category:Images - Greetings from the Simpsons (2007). I would do it myself but I'm now curious to see if there is an issue. Can clicking that link lead you to the page to create? The Solar Dragon 17:37, August 5, 2015 (EDT)
There is another postcard book by the same title that was published in 1990, and I'm planning on writing an article for that book as well, so I'll have a chance to have another go at creating a category. -- Mythigator (talk) 18:53, August 5, 2015 (EDT)

Can't find where this come from in the show[edit]

They're in Springfield Heights' update: Incubator Think Tank, Polo Field House + Polo Field, Burn's Money Pool.

do you have any idea where they may come from? —Preceding unsigned comment added by LetsPlayNintendoITA (talkcontribs) 11:35, August 7, 2015

The Money Pool, I'm guessing is from "Homer the Great". It was from the Stonecutters event. Everything else I literally have no idea. Maybe try asking AleWi. The Solar Dragon 11:42, August 7, 2015 (EDT)

wild guess: is the think tank some sort of lego movie spoof?--71.162.155.239 13:02, August 11, 2015 (EDT)

Two questions[edit]

Hi Solar, I have two questions to ask you. 1) Could you update the featured contemt in September 1, please? I won't be in my home that week and I will only have the internet of my phone to make edits and with that I'll only be able to make minor edits. In October I'll update the featured content, and 2) Is there anything planned for the wiki's 10th anniversary, which is in next month? / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 07:44, August 17, 2015 (EDT)

Sure, I could do the featured content. And no, there's nothing planned. If you can thing of anything we can do for it, tell me so I can prepare things, and get Jake to help out if need be. The Solar Dragon 07:54, August 17, 2015 (EDT)
Well, I have no ideas in mind now but I've thought we could create a page "Wikisimpsons:10th Anniversary ideas" and ask users about what could be done for the wiki's 10th Anniversary and then select a couple of ideas. The deadline to give ideas should be in early September. The page should be also in the sitenotice. / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 08:06, August 17, 2015 (EDT)
Regarding the 10th Anniversary, I've started this page, but I think it is not complete yet. It is OK like it is? Should I move it to the "Wikisimpsons:" namespace? BTW, should it be moved to the "Wikisimpsons:" namespace or to the "Blog:" namespace? / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 21:04, August 18, 2015 (EDT)

image problems[edit]

I replaced an image but the white bars are still there just with the image squished why? also could you delete this page because its contents is joined to another page, Oh and now the transparency has gone in one of the images i've uploaded Alicia (talk) 14:35, August 18, 2015 (EDT)

You have to refresh the cache to make the new image show. Ctrl + F5 usually does this. If this still doesn't work, edit the page and hit save without making any changes. As for transparency, is the image you uploaded a jpg? Transparency only works on png images. The Solar Dragon 14:46, August 18, 2015 (EDT)

Okay I see now, that worked thanks... but what confuses me the most then is that i have quite a few transparent jpg files O_O. Just found Simpsons_Summer_Shindig_UK which is an old version of Simpsons Summer Shindig (UK) which could be deleted as well. Alicia (talk) 14:56, August 18, 2015 (EDT)

Huh. Whenever I use GIMP to make images transparent, it tells me that transparency will be lost if converted to jpg. So that's weird. The Solar Dragon 14:58, August 18, 2015 (EDT)
I always use this page to make images transparent and it works really well. But if I then edit the image with Paint, it tells me that the transparency will be lost if I save no-matter-what edits (even if I'm saving it to a .png). / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 20:12, August 18, 2015 (EDT)

[[1]] is right but when try to make the features tab this happens [[2]] and can't seem to fix it it just goes into example/features/Appearances instead of example/Appearances like all the other tabs. hope that made sense Alicia (talk) 16:12, August 19, 2015 (EDT)

SF shopper[edit]

Hey, can't you link the facebook and twitter account to the blog so it autoposts the posts we do? just wondering LetsPlayNintendoITA (talk) 13:36, August 28, 2015 (EDT)

I probably won't. I like to add links to pages and hashtags in etc. Can't do that with automatic posts. The Solar Dragon 15:45, August 28, 2015 (EDT)

Lego Dimensions[edit]

I guess you're picking up Lego Dimensions then?--Cook879 15:42, August 28, 2015 (EDT)

I'd like to but I'm already spending too much collecting amiibo. I'll have to give Dimensions a miss although I'd love to be able to play it. I just thought we needed an article for it as I knew there was Simpsons content for it. The Solar Dragon 15:45, August 28, 2015 (EDT)
I did wonder why there wasn't a page but was too lazy to make it :P Not collecting Amiibo or anything, I shall be getting Dimensions - starting with Simpsons, Scooby Doo, Portal 2 and Wizard of Oz, and shall be getting Doctor Who when it comes out. Everything else will be in sales or just when I feel like it. Just started a quest to complete all the WiiU Lego games 100% - currently 75% on Lego Marvel and should hopefully finish this weekend - so will probably end up getting all of Dimensions eventually (though I can't say the idea of Ninjago thrills me - at least some of the Chima characters look cool). How's the Amiibo collection going?--Cook879 16:28, August 28, 2015 (EDT)
Awesome. I 100%ed Lego Marvel months ago. lol. I have every amiibo released so far and every amiibo available for pre-order ordered. I dread to think how much I have spent on my collection though. lol. The Solar Dragon 16:31, August 28, 2015 (EDT)
Well I completed the story on PC last year - went to complete it like three weeks ago but I got really confused about the controls, so brought it on WiiU and decided to start my crazy challenge! That's pretty impressive - I guess you have dedicated shelving in place now? :P--Cook879 04:37, August 29, 2015 (EDT)
Well, I do have shelving but it's already pretty much full. I have all my Nintendo figures and merchandise on them. lol. I'm actually thinking about getting proper display cases to replace my shelves. I need more space for them. The Solar Dragon 06:30, August 29, 2015 (EDT)
Especially at the rate they seem to be coming out with more!--Cook879 05:03, August 30, 2015 (EDT)

Kent Brockman's "Gay" List[edit]

In "Bart's Comet", when it appears that Springfield is about to be destroyed, Kent Brockman airs a list of people that he says are gay. A lot of them seem to have their own articles (of questionable notability, BTW) and are listed as gay or lesbian, as appropriate, on the LGBT characters template. Notability issues aside, shouldn't these people be under the "hinted" categories, since the only thing we have to go on is Brockman's impending-apocalypse "outing"? -- Mythigator (talk) 20:34, August 30, 2015 (EDT)

I personally believe they shouldn't have articles. Or should be mentioned under Staff Cameos or something. The Solar Dragon 03:49, August 31, 2015 (EDT)
They don't seem to fit under any of the categories in that article. Maybe we need to add a category called something like "Gags" or "Mentions"? -- Mythigator (talk) 19:17, August 31, 2015 (EDT)

My page creating rights[edit]

Why can't I create pages yet and when will I get that right? -- PK2 (talk) 07:59, August 31, 2015 (EDT)

You can't create pages yet because it's a spam prevention feature. See Wikisimpsons:Users#Autoconfirmed users to see how to get page creation rights. The Solar Dragon 08:10, August 31, 2015 (EDT)

New IP Addresses[edit]

You've probably already figured it out, but the site now supports IPv6, so we're going to start seeing those weird super long IPv6 addresses from now on. Just figured I'd offer an explanation since I left that out of my email. :P --Jake 05:36, September 5, 2015 (EDT)

Yeah, I figured that. Was interesting to see the new IPs pop up. lol The Solar Dragon 06:05, September 5, 2015 (EDT)

Main Page Talk Page Vandalism[edit]

The IP vandalism edit to the Main Page Talk Page needs to be rendered invisible. A quick look at it should easily reveal why. However, I'm not sure whether I have the ability to do that, or if I do, how to go about it. -- Mythigator (talk) 03:27, September 8, 2015 (EDT)

I'm not sure if you can but if you look in history pages, next to revisions should be a checkbox. Ticking this and then going to the button "change visibility of selected revisions" should allow you to delete the revision. The Solar Dragon 06:14, September 8, 2015 (EDT)
But this ability to delete revisions is not an ability that admins have. Only the Wiki Head(You, Solar) and the Server Manager(Jake) have that ability.(See List of User group rights). On the other hand, we admins can delete the page and then undelete it without that revision of the page by not selecting it when "Choose what revisions to undelete". / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 09:11, September 8, 2015 (EDT)
Ah right. I didn't know if it was all admins or only me and Jake with that ability. The Solar Dragon 09:23, September 8, 2015 (EDT)
The SPAM edit from today should also be hidden. / Loco87 (SimpsonsFT.pngSimpsonsFA.pngSimpsonsFL.pngSimpsonsFK.png / Contribs) 09:59, November 5, 2015 (EST)

Mafia Names[edit]

Hey. How can we be sure the names of the mafia added by that IP User are not made-up? They should be removed unless they are sourced. I've seen you've asked the IP about this. But the unsourced names should be removed until they have a reliable source. / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 16:03, September 9, 2015 (EDT)

Yeah, go ahead and remove them then. The Solar Dragon 16:04, September 9, 2015 (EDT)

The Springfield Shopper: User to ban[edit]

Homer Simpson User Spammer.png

Please ban this spammer. IP, email and nickname.
he kept spamming TSTOTopix over and over with different nicknames saying s**t all over the place. I know we've to approve comments but its better to ban him anyway. thanks LetsPlayNintendoITA (talk) 18:47, September 22, 2015 (EDT)
Until he's actually spammed, there's no point in blocking him. The Solar Dragon 13:01, September 23, 2015 (EDT)
ok just wanted to report this anyway. better keep an eye on him. besides with comments need approval to show up it won't be a problem :) LetsPlayNintendoITA (talk) 13:42, September 23, 2015 (EDT)

Hey I was wondering, how do I change my signature to be something like Lets Play Nintendo ITA? LetsPlayNintendoITA (talk) 00:33, September 25, 2015 (EDT)

Copy the code into the signature box in Special:Preferences and tick the box underneath it to use wiki markup. The Solar Dragon 03:28, September 25, 2015 (EDT)
Oh, in italian it said Surname translated there lol thanks. it didn't fit as it was so i had to do only user page as link but oh well. i used silver instead of white or it wouldn't read over white bg. LetsPlayNintendoITA 09:19, September 25, 2015 (EDT)

I'm sorry, I don't understand what exactly you mean. The Solar Dragon 17:45, September 26, 2015 (EDT)
Sorry, I meant something that makes it easy to create tables that look like the tables on this page link to the transcripts http://simpsonswiki.com/wiki/List_of_episodes FatHomerTalk 17:50, September 26, 2015 (EDT)
Urm, Just follow the guide on Template:Table. It explains how to make them there. The Solar Dragon 17:55, September 26, 2015 (EDT)
I've already made this: User:FatHomer/Episode Transcript Listing, but I thought that maybe there's an easier way. What do you think should go in the table? FatHomerTalk 13:20, September 27, 2015 (EDT)

Hi, I don't know if you saw this or not so I'm asking again: what do you think should go in the table? When I made what I've already have done, I followed http://theinfosphere.org/Episode_Transcript_Listing. Just what to know before I continue. FatHomerTalk 16:02, October 13, 2015 (EDT)

Saxophone Lisa is from the MusicVille Couch Gag. Kang and Kodos is unknown. The Solar Dragon 06:58, October 11, 2015 (EDT)
omg i totally forgot about that. thanks! ok must be new then :p maybe we'll see them in the THOH XXVI :D LetsPlayNintendoITA 07:00, October 11, 2015 (EDT)
Fairy Kodos and Pirate Kang are from THOH XXIII, they appear during the opening screen, while the Mayan Gods are destroying Earth. Alexmirpas (talk) 07:47, October 11, 2015 (EDT)
Awesome thanks! Holiday Homer must be a combo of stuff since he's made of different stuff, 4th of july, st. patrick's, christmas and easter in one lol. I also found out where C'htulu appeared on THOH XXIV's intro LetsPlayNintendoITA 08:10, October 11, 2015 (EDT)
I wonder where the Apu's Apocalypse Jeep comes from. maybe from this seasons' halloween dual ep? I still haven't found anything on this items:
Halloween Party Wall, Halloween Balloons, Spooky Tent, Spooky Cabin, Spooky House, Tenta-Corp HQ, Sunken Temple, Bramble Hedge, Spooky Hedge, Gate to Nowhere, Mechanical Ghost, The Impossible Tower, Biohazard Tower, Wailing Wall, Spooky Wall, Spooky Tree, Dead Tree, Victorian UFO. Probably most are for just the game too but... LetsPlayNintendoITA 08:48, October 11, 2015 (EDT)
The Wailing Wall actually has an article. As for the others, I'm not sure. Dead Trees appear in various THOH openings I think. Others will likely be in the Halloween episodes this year. The Solar Dragon 08:49, October 11, 2015 (EDT)
Oh cool! we'll wait and see i guess. maybe Chtulu will make a reappearance :D such a cool event! don't you agree? LetsPlayNintendoITA 08:56, October 11, 2015 (EDT)
That Victorian UFO I still can't place it where it's from cause it's an old deco from previous events so it can't be from this THOH episode. LetsPlayNintendoITA 08:58, October 11, 2015 (EDT)

I don't know. They shouldn't have articles. I've only recently been more interested in improving comic articles and haven't seen all of them. If a series isn't out in the UK, it shouldn't have a UK article. The Solar Dragon 15:50, October 11, 2015 (EDT)

You've been plagiarised[edit]

Check this out: http://treehouse-of-horror.wikia.com/wiki/Treehouse_of_Horror - looks like someone copied two of your templates (the non-canon banner and the episode infobox) and started a copycat wiki. That's the only page they did and the person who made that is a multiple sockpuppet on Wikia with several globally blocked accounts. So if someone called 60minuteuser626 or any of the names listed at http://powerrangers.wikia.com/wiki/Template:Sockpuppet/Samjoo shows up here, watch out.

We have no use for the documentation template. We get by fine without it. It's unnecessary. The Solar Dragon 16:51, November 1, 2015 (EST)

Template:ComicsListWorld[edit]

Why is Template:ComicsListWorld unneeded? Dylan - Talk Contribs 12:23, November 6, 2015 (EST)

Well, the template itself was vague and placed on many pages where it was unnecessary (i.e. the Bart Annuals page) and we don't really have pages for the comics per country, listing all series of comics in that country etc. That's what it would be necessary for. The Solar Dragon 12:24, November 6, 2015 (EST)

comics[edit]

1. Simpsons Comics Winter Wingding In The UK " ‎(Only one comic in the series. Doesn't need a series page.)" oh but Simpsons Comics and Stories is perfectly fine!?

2. Simpsons crossovers tell me how you get to the crossovers that were in futurama comics then in the UK then?

3. Treasure trove actually those wingding and summer shindig should because ages ago on titan magazines website the number of the issues were something like "SimpTrove15/Summer1"

4. why did you remove "Simpsons Comics From Magazines" and "Simpsons Comics (Newsstand Edition UK)" from Simpsons Comics (UK) just cause the pages weren't made doesn't mean they needed to be removed from the page and if you say they don't exist then see below Simpsons-comic-daily-mirror.jpg Simpsons-us-1-newsstand-uk.jpg

Dylan - Talk Contribs 03:01, November 8, 2015 (EST)

  1. That also shouldn't have a page. I redirected it to the article.
  2. The comics should be listed under "Reprints" on the comic story articles, with links to The Infosphere articles.
  3. Summer Shindig comics are not Treasure Trove. The clue is in the name. Doesn't matter what the listing number is, they don't follow the naming or numbering.
  4. They were broken links. If the articles get created, add them back in. The Solar Dragon 03:06, November 8, 2015 (EST)

Completely different question why is the simpsonswiki logo say Wikisimpsons and the website is simpsonswiki Dylan - Talk Contribs 06:06, November 8, 2015 (EST)

Tab templates[edit]

Hi Solar. I've just seen there's a problem with the Tab templates. (At least with the tab templates used with episodes except from the {{Tab}} template). The problem is that the templates make a line break between them and whatever there is under them (usually the "EpisodePrevNext" templates, but that's not important). To see what happens under the tab templates:Puffless and Puffless/References. The tab templates that have this problem are {{TabR}}, {{TabA}}, {{TabC}}, {{TabG}} and {{TabQ}}. What do you think? Can you fix it? Thanks! / Loco87 (SimpsonsFT.pngSimpsonsFA.pngSimpsonsFL.pngSimpsonsFK.png / Contribs) 08:42, November 10, 2015 (EST)

In the future, if you notice an admin or a rollback has reverted your edits, ask the user or an admin why have your edits been reverted. Don't revert the reversion!

I'll point out a couple of problems with your edits to LGBT characters. 1) You are removing {{Comp}} from the top of the page. 2) You are adding in information out of universe "in an upcoming season 27 episode." that hasn't even aired yet, or even been given an episode name yet. We don't add in information from unreleased episodes in non-episode articles. Other additions were just unneeded. The Solar Dragon 11:50, January 10, 2016 (EST)

I'm not going to give that an answer. As head admin of Wikisimpsons, I can't suggest you try and get people to move away from Simpsons Wikia.

A doubt[edit]

Hi Solar. I've got a doubt. If a TV show has referenced The Simpsons 4 times and The Simpsons has referenced it just once, should it get an article?? / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 19:12, April 7, 2016 (EDT)

I'm generally under the impression that 5 references between either of the shows can get it an article. Is there an example of this? The Solar Dragon 04:23, April 8, 2016 (EDT)
Sure. The Big Bang Theory is an example. I've created a page for it in my userspace. I think there are enough references in that page to mainspace it. / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 08:37, April 8, 2016 (EDT)

Questline page[edit]

hey I was thinking, instead of overflowing the event page (that's slowing down the loading considerably) and having to split the event in 3 pages. Why don't we create separate pages for the questlines? Like

  • Issue 1
  • Issue 2
  • Issue 3
  • Premium
  • Prizes and Craftables

depending on how big they're we could fuse more of them in 1 page but instead of having all clustered there? And have them linked in the Gameplay tag of the page. This of course only for big events with lots of quests. LetsPlayNintendoITA 16:01, June 17, 2016 (EDT)

Whatever you think is best, you go for it. The Solar Dragon 16:04, June 17, 2016 (EDT)

22 "For" 30[edit]

Hi Solar. I created the page for the episode with the name "22 For 30" with "For" instead of "for" 'cause in the script cover it was written "For". They used to write the titles in script covers in uppercase, but they have recently not done it like that. I always use titlecase.com with new episode titles to write them properly. / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 11:03, June 30, 2016 (EDT)

The proper title case for "For" is "for", lower case. I went to submit the episode name to IMDb and it told me this, so I checked with titlecase.com as well and it also said that. Also, if you check Wikipedia for articles with "for" in the middle, i.e. Thanks for Nothing, it's also lowercase, and we follow Wikipedia naming conventions.

I undid the edit as there was formatting problems. You left references next to the wrong names. As for his real name, I'm looking into it and trying to figure out the sources for the names. I'm fairly sure multiple sources, including an episode, have referred to him as Chester Turley. Therefore, that is likely the name we should keep as his main as only one episode has called him by that other name. Although, the fact that it's the latest episode to name him means we could use that as the name we use... Basically, it's confusing and it could be either name.
As for me undoing your other edits, I only undo edits if I have a good reason to do so. And if I make a mistake, feel free to talk to me about it or bring it up on the talk page of the article. I am not perfect and I can make mistakes.

Picture types[edit]

Why exactly are pictures so often changed from JPG types to PNG? --205.213.104.111 15:17, August 29, 2016 (EDT)

PNGs are higher quality than JPGs as they keep the original quality of the image whilst JPGs compress the quality. We prefer screenshots to be in PNG as a result. The Solar Dragon 15:25, August 29, 2016 (EDT)
PNG image files are definitely better quality, but in my experience JPGs are easier to obtain. Therefore, it's a very common scenario that I (for example) will be building a new article and hastily illustrate it with a JPG or two (because that's what I was able to find on short notice), but then another editor will later work on the article and put PNGs in place of the JPGs. Hope that explains it, Mr. (or Ms.) IP! :-) -- Mythigator (talk) 01:10, August 30, 2016 (EDT)
How can one access that particular type? --205.213.104.127 16:25, September 7, 2016 (EDT)

My bot request[edit]

WikiMonitor is based off the Scratch Wiki bot. It will be made with PHP and will do four tasks. Clearing out the sandbox every four hours, telling people if they've made a page with no categories, telling people if they've forgotten to sign their post and telling people if they've over-edited a page will be the tasks the bots will do. The definition for "too many edits" is six in an hour. Banana439monkey (talk) 13:52, October 29, 2016 (EDT)

We don't really have a problem with that sort of thing. The sandbox is rarely edited and used. Pages with no categories are hard to make since most templates add categories as well. Signing posts is sort of an issue but it's something we can easily add the unsigned templates to. There's never too many unsigned messages. And over editing pages isn't a huge issue. Sometimes, repeated edits need to be made to pages. One section at a time (like with Tapped Out character group pages). I tell people if they edit a page too much myself. It just doesn't seem that needed to me. The Solar Dragon 14:06, October 29, 2016 (EDT)

New Baby Merch Line - Made in Springfield[edit]

Hey Solar, I was looking for more new info on the Skinnydip London x Simpsons Undressed collection and instead I came across a licensing site. I found out The Simpsons will have a major baby product line in 2017 called Made in Springfield.

http://licensingsource.net/the-simpsons-baby-and-nursery-line-to-launch/

I don't know how major this will be for news, but it is something to watch. Not sure if I should make direct messages to your userpage or just on the Springfield Shopper contact page if I find any new stuff.

SchemingMinor (talk) 18:22, November 15, 2016 (EST)

We'll wait until there's more details before making any pages or articles about it. I'd like some images, some confirmed products and where to buy them before saying anything.
