Hi, HOMER SIMPSON is Spam. It's been marked with the delete template. Thanks!    Effluvium    talk    contributions    email   16:48, May 31, 2010 (UTC)

Wikisimpsons time[edit]

Hi, I was wondering what time area does Wikisimpsons follow? It says on various pages - "votes end June 1st 2010 Wikisimpsons time" - is it GMT or some other? I'd like to know, just to see the changes made when all the votes are counted in. Because I'm weird like that! :)    Effluvium    talk    contributions    email   22:31, May 31, 2010 (UTC)

It is official Wikia time. On your preferences, it says something like +/- 0 hours. That is Wikia time. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.)☆ 07:27, June 1, 2010 (UTC)
OK. And I was meaning to ask you - what day will the rollback nominations end? Thanks!    Effluvium    talk    contributions    email   09:35, June 1, 2010 (UTC)
A week after it started for rollback. Two weeks for Admin and Bureaucrat. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.)☆ 09:38, June 1, 2010 (UTC)
Thanks!    Effluvium    talk    contributions    email   09:39, June 1, 2010 (UTC)
That should be the 3rd then. Two days left. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.)☆ 09:40, June 1, 2010 (UTC)
OK. And thanks for nominating me for the homer award again this month - it means a lot to me! :)    Effluvium    talk    contributions    email   16:09, June 1, 2010 (UTC)
Yeah well, I will probably be nominating just about everyone who edits thus month really. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.)☆ 16:47, June 1, 2010 (UTC)
Why's that? Not many people editing, or something?    Effluvium    talk    contributions    email   16:49, June 1, 2010 (UTC)
Not at all. More people to vote for. As long as they edit for more than a day, I will probably add them for a wider range of people to vote for. It installs confidence as well. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.)☆ 16:53, June 1, 2010 (UTC)
Oh, OK. I get it. So, have we switched to this new voting method for good now? Or are we going to revert to our old voting ways?    Effluvium    talk    contributions    email   17:00, June 1, 2010 (UTC)
If it works, then we will use it. if not, we will revert to our old way. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.)☆ 17:04, June 1, 2010 (UTC)

TYou destroyed my edit[edit]

F** you your luky im cesoring jacka** go F*** yoursef —Preceding unsigned comment added by Kni2 (talkcontribs) 17:39, June 2, 2010


Thanks for the advice. Will keep that in mind.
--J36miles 18:26, June 2, 2010 (UTC)

You're welcome. Great to have a new member here. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.)☆ 18:28, June 2, 2010 (UTC)

How do you make friends on this wiki. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Ddear (talkcontribs) 05:23, June 3, 2010

Firstly, please add " ~~~~ " after each post on a talk page. Second of all, this isn't Youtube or Facebook, this is an online encyclopedia, so we don't have a "friends" function. We're all a part of a community anyway.

Ldude893 05:23, June 3, 2010 (UTC)

Ldude said it for me. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.)☆ 05:59, June 3, 2010 (UTC)


Hi, I was just wondering if the first paragraph on an episode (with info on writers, airdate, director etc) is really needed, seeing as all that information is present in the infobox? Also, the Manual of Style does not mention these paragraphs (to my knowledge anyway!) but simply asks for a brief summary of the plot. Thanks for that! :)    Effluvium    talk    contributions    email   21:38, June 3, 2010 (UTC)

I would say a brief introduction to the episode, Episode X of season X would be wanted. However, nothing else is necessary. A brief summary of the plot, also any major changes should be mentioned, new recurring character, death, etc. Should be mentioned. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.)☆ 21:40, June 3, 2010 (UTC)
OK. Thanks for getting back to me!    Effluvium    talk    contributions    email   21:46, June 3, 2010 (UTC)


Hi, I was a little shocked to see that I have a warning?! I don't understand exactly what've I done wrong and I've in no way vandalised the wiki in such way. If you could tell me what I have done wrong, I'd be very grateful. But I think the warning was unnecessary. Thanks!    Effluvium    talk    contributions    email   10:05, June 4, 2010 (UTC)

According to Smiley12, it had something to do with me editing Homer's age? Even so, if the age or information was incorrect, it shouldn'tof resulted in a warning. I'm still confused over the whole thing though...   Effluvium    talk    contributions    email   10:32, June 4, 2010 (UTC)


Mine was not exactly a duplicate, I converted it, cleaned it, made it transparent, and removed the water mark. And about the skin on the Ben 10 wiki, I need permission with the other admins to change it. --Renzo493 14:35, June 5, 2010 (UTC)

If that is the case, you should have uploaded it under the same file name as it was basically the same picture. Feel free to replace the existing image with it. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.)☆ 14:32, June 5, 2010 (UTC)
But mine is .png and I don't think jpgs can have transparent background so I'm gonna upload it Flanders_rod.png? --Renzo493 15:05, June 5, 2010
Upload it over the old version. It works. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.)☆ 14:49, June 5, 2010 (UTC)

Sideshow Bob Template[edit]

Hi, do we prehaps a template that contains all the Sideshow Bob episodes, such as the one we have for Krusty. If we don't, could I create one? There is a more than decent one which can be viewed on Wikipedia. Thanks!    Effluvium    talk    contributions    email   12:04, June 6, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, sure. Go ahead. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.)☆ 12:06, June 6, 2010 (UTC)
Right. Finished. Here's the Template:Sideshow Bob|template. Hope your OK with it! :)    Effluvium    talk    contributions    email   12:20, June 6, 2010 (UTC)
Cool. We should make one for each character actually. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.)☆ 12:35, June 6, 2010 (UTC)
Yeah. That was what I was thinking. I'll try and get around to making a few later.    Effluvium    talk    contributions    email   12:38, June 6, 2010 (UTC)
Also, see Forum:New Episode Categories and leave your input please if you don't mind. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.)☆ 12:40, June 6, 2010 (UTC)

Colour Signature?[edit]

Hi - I'm really sorry, but how do you put the colours on the name? I can't find a hint of how to do it...—Preceding unsigned comment added by I ish ur nightmare (talkcontribs)

well i could help you just tell me what color you want or solar either of us can do it. ScarletScarabX (Talk) 17:10, June 6, 2010 (UTC) then we can make one we need a color to make it

I left him a message on hit talk page. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.)☆ 17:10, June 6, 2010 (UTC)

Treehouse of Horror Template[edit]

Hi, could I create a template (similar to the Sideshow Bob one I made the other day) that lists all the different Treehouse of Horror episodes? Thanks!    Effluvium    talk    contributions    email   15:14, June 7, 2010 (UTC)

Look. You don't have to ask me in future. Feel free to create any templates you want. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.)☆ 15:22, June 7, 2010 (UTC)
OK. Thanks for telling me!    Effluvium    talk    contributions    email   16:19, June 7, 2010 (UTC)

speculation ?[edit]

hello solar dragon. i am wondering if im allowed to use speculation on this website becuse i relly need to know before i add any theroys on characters or places . if you dont allow speculation on this site i understand completely and if you do id greatly apreciate it . thank you and please answer as soon as you can . —Preceding unsigned comment added by Casecr (talkcontribs) 17:01, June 7, 2010

No. Speculation belongs in the Forum:Simpsons talk|Forum. Feel free to add any speculation you want there. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.)☆ 16:11, June 7, 2010 (UTC)

Great job[edit]

I haven't visited the site in a while, but it appears to be in much better shape than it was when I left it, and you have done a great job in helping to maintain it. There appear to be more active and dedicated users, which really helps. It will be a while before this wikia is anywhere near the standard set by Lostpedia, but I must say it's starting to get on the right path. -- Brian McClure 22:20, June 7, 2010 (UTC)

Thank you. I have tried my best to get this site working properly and fully up and running. Appreciate the compliment. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.)☆ 05:06, June 8, 2010 (UTC)

Is there a bot at this wikia? I think some of the categories need overhauling, but it would take a long time to do manually. I've been looking through Category:Characters voiced by guest stars, which is very poorly defined and contains several guests who appeared as themselves. There is also :Category:Guest Stars. I think that one needs to be renamed to "Guest stars". Then a new Category:Self-voicing guest stars needs to be created. So every guest star would go in "Guest stars". Then, for the in-universe aspect, guest stars who appeared as themselves would go in the self-voicing category. -- Brian McClure 22:18, June 8, 2010 (UTC)

I don't know, most likely not. I'll probably continue my trend of popping by every now and then. -- Brian McClure 14:19, June 9, 2010 (UTC)


I have just lost interest in the Simpsons as a whole. I will also be starting school again soon so I will not have as much time to edit.
--J36miles 16:38, June 8, 2010 (UTC)


Hi, can the non-canon template be placed at the top of a Treehouse of Horror episode? Or is the template only for the non-canon sections on characters pages? Thanks!    Effluvium    talk    contributions    email   17:32, June 10, 2010 (UTC)

Hmm, I think we should have a separate template for non-canon episodes actually. If you would like to whip one together, that will be good. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.)☆ 20:08, June 10, 2010 (UTC)
I'd be happy to! What were you thinking the template contain?    Effluvium    talk    contributions    email   20:12, June 10, 2010 (UTC)
Something like: This episode is considered non-canon and the events in it do not relate to the series, or something similar to that but better worded. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.)☆ 20:13, June 10, 2010 (UTC)
OK. I'll sort that out for you now.    Effluvium    talk    contributions    email   20:14, June 10, 2010 (UTC)
Any image in mind? Or keep the same as the other noncanon template?    Effluvium    talk    contributions    email   20:20, June 10, 2010 (UTC)
Either keep the same or use a suitable THOH segment opening screen, which I doubt there is one so keep the same one. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.)☆ 20:22, June 10, 2010 (UTC)
I've found a picture of Homer with his donut head? How about that?    Effluvium    talk    contributions    email   20:26, June 10, 2010 (UTC)
I guess that will do fine. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.)☆ 20:27, June 10, 2010 (UTC)
Done. Here it is.    Effluvium    talk    contributions    email   20:30, June 10, 2010 (UTC)
Yep. Just seen it and it looks fine. You can add it to the articles if you want now. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.)☆ 20:31, June 10, 2010 (UTC)
Yup. Will do!    Effluvium    talk    contributions    email   20:32, June 10, 2010 (UTC)
Right, I've inserted that into all the Treehouse of Horror pages.    Effluvium    talk    contributions    email   20:59, June 10, 2010 (UTC)
OK. There are also some other episodes too that could use it such as Simpsons Bible Stories and others. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.)☆ 21:01, June 10, 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, I'll add the template to them as soon as possible.    Effluvium    talk    contributions    email   21:06, June 10, 2010 (UTC)
OK. Added the template to pretty much every non-canon episode now. Hopefully, I've got them all! :)    Effluvium    talk    contributions    email   15:51, June 11, 2010 (UTC)

Episode Title Problem[edit]

Hi, Solar. There's a problem with the title for the episode "D'oh-in' in the Wind." It's in our wiki under two different titles:

  • "D'oh-in' in the Wind" (with an apostrophe after the first "in") - this seems to be the official title, per sources such as snpp.org, IMDB, and the Season 10 DVD.
  • "D'oh-in in the Wind" (no apostrophe) - the regular Wikipedia has it under this title, but based on the above, I say they've got it wrong.

In our wiki, the no-apostrophe version of the episode is the much better developed one, except for the Quotes tab. I suggest doing the following:

  1. Delete the "with-apostrophe" version (except possibly for the Quotes tab, see #3 below).
  2. Re-title the "no-apostrophe" version to have the apostrophe.
  3. OPTIONAL: Merge the old "with-apostrophe" version of the Quotes tab into the re-titled article. I say "optional" because I've made a backup copy of the completed quotes page. I can paste it back in easily enough if the episode ends up with the bare-bones version of the Quotes tab.

Thanks and hope all goes well with getting it straightened out! -- Mythigator 01:14, June 11, 2010 (UTC)

Think I sorted it all properly. Tell me if I missed anything. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.)☆ 05:18, June 11, 2010 (UTC)
All looks fine, including the Quotes tab. Well done! The Appearances and Credits tabs need to be expanded, but that was the case all along. Also, I know there are redlinks for "Groovy Grove Natural Farms." I put them in myself as I'm planning on writing that article, so they won't be red for long. And I'll go ahead and check on some of the episodes "peripheral" articles (such as Seth's and Munchie's) and make sure that 1) they link back to the episode OK, and 2) they've got the episode name spelled correctly. There's no point in perpetuating the apostrophe error any further. -- Mythigator 11:50, June 11, 2010 (UTC)

Clip Show Template[edit]

Hi, seeing as I've been shorting out noncanon templates for the episodes, is a template needed for the clip-show episodes? You know, just saying that the episode is a clip-show and features clips from other episodes. If there's no need, no worries. Just thinking of a way of sorting out all the episodes.    Effluvium    talk    contributions    email   16:00, June 11, 2010 (UTC)

Well, we might as well have one of those too then if you want to make one. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.)☆ 16:58, June 11, 2010 (UTC)
Great! I'd be happy to make one! What text were you thinking of?    Effluvium    talk    contributions    email   17:06, June 11, 2010 (UTC)
Something simple like This episode is a clip show and features a lot of clips from previous episodes. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.)☆ 17:08, June 11, 2010 (UTC)
OK. I'll get working on it now.    Effluvium    talk    contributions    email   17:10, June 11, 2010 (UTC)
Right, here it is. Hope its OK.    Effluvium    talk    contributions    email   17:25, June 11, 2010 (UTC)
Looks fine to me. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.)☆ 17:37, June 11, 2010 (UTC)
Fine. I've added it to all the clip-show episodes now. Thanks for that!    Effluvium    talk    contributions    email   17:39, June 11, 2010 (UTC)
Oh yeah, I forgot to tell you that I also created another template with links to all the Terwilliger family members. Hope thats OK.    Effluvium    talk    contributions    email   18:57, June 11, 2010 (UTC)
Read what I said here. I saw that you had already created that template and I am fine with any template you make. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.)☆ 19:03, June 11, 2010 (UTC)


Hi, that vandal who editted the Elmo page has just vandalized it again! I've reverted the edit, but I think he needs a block.    Effluvium    talk    contributions    email   22:04, June 11, 2010 (UTC)

I've blocked him --Smiley12 was here at 22:51, June 11, 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for sorting that out, Smiley!    Effluvium    talk    contributions    email   09:51, June 12, 2010 (UTC)

Warning? (again!)[edit]

Hi, I've been left a message by ASHMAN234122. He has only edited twice and I think it was vandalism to my talkpage. Could it be made unoffical please? Thanks!    Effluvium    talk    contributions    email   18:58, June 13, 2010 (UTC)

Right, he needs a block or a warning himself! He has just vandalised Dohayecarumbadoh's talk-page too!    Effluvium    talk    contributions    email   19:00, June 13, 2010 (UTC)
Sorted. He has been blocked too. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.)☆ 19:03, June 13, 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for that! I hate vandals so much! >:(    Effluvium    talk    contributions    email   19:05, June 13, 2010 (UTC)
Don't we all. I would normally have left him a warning only but he was probably in the act of vandalising my talk page or something. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.)☆ 19:09, June 13, 2010 (UTC)
Yeah. How long have you blocked him for? Forever? Or just a few weeks?    Effluvium    talk    contributions    email   19:10, June 13, 2010 (UTC)
Just two weeks. You can see the block log in recent changes. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.)☆ 19:11, June 13, 2010 (UTC)
Well, I meant to do two weeks so just changed the settings. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.)☆ 19:14, June 13, 2010 (UTC)
OK. Well, thanks for sorting that out, Solar!    Effluvium    talk    contributions    email   19:16, June 13, 2010 (UTC)

Images for the "China" article[edit]

I'm adding images into the articles for countries that appeared in The Simpsons. Tell me, which of the following suits best for the China article? Ldude893 12:35, June 16, 2010 (UTC)

The first one will do for the infobox. The other two could go in a gallery or around the article in places. Thanks for the images. Really helps the wiki. Also, please view my latest blog. Link in sitenotice. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.)☆ 12:37, June 16, 2010 (UTC)

New templates[edit]

Just thought I'd let you know about a pair of new templates I made.

  • Template:No episode, for pages that don't specify a certain episode
  • Template:Deleted scene, for pages that are about things featured only in a deleted scene.

I think they will come in useful. -- Brian McClure 23:15, June 16, 2010 (UTC)

Also, could you please use your bot to add this to many of the mainspace navigation templates:

<div style="float:left; width:6em; text-align:left">{{Navbar|template name|plain=1}}</div>

What it does is add a direct link so users can click "edit" or "view" without having to try to find the code. You can find an example here. Just remember to change the "template name" bit for each page (it shouldn't include the "template:" part). Again, this should only go in navigation templates and not infoboxes. -- Brian McClure 00:12, June 17, 2010 (UTC)

Baby Button Eyes[edit]

What's the stylistic issue with the Baby Button Eyes page? It might not be resolveable, in which case the best course would be to just delete that page. Everything that's known about her is already mentioned on the page for The Re-Deadening, anyway, so deleting her page woldn't be a big deal. -- Mythigator 18:09, June 17, 2010 (UTC)

Needs an infobox, appearance section needs the extra s on the end, more categories etc. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.)☆ 18:34, June 17, 2010 (UTC)
Well, I've just done all of the above, Solar. Hope that helps! :)    Effluvium    talk    contributions    email   18:40, June 17, 2010 (UTC)
Yep. It is fine now. I would have done it myself but exams. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.)☆ 18:41, June 17, 2010 (UTC)
Agreed. The page looks great. -- Mythigator 02:50, June 19, 2010 (UTC)

Project images[edit]

I'm new to the wiki and I was wondering, if I want to join project images, do I need permision or do I just add my name to the list? Oh, and it looks like Kni2 doesn't like you very much. Bshardy 05:20, June 19, 2010 (UTC)

No. You don't need permission. Just join. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.)☆ 06:41, June 19, 2010 (UTC)

Image Edit[edit]

I just added an image to The Fat and the Furriest but it put some text before and after it. How do I get it to go away? --Bshardy 05:42, June 19, 2010 (UTC)

Fixed it. For the inbox, you didn't need to have the double square brackets around the file name and number of pixels. -- Mythigator 05:57, June 19, 2010 (UTC)
