Userboxes[edit]

Okay if you want a page, click on the red link that is your username, or from this page, click user page. Type whatever you want and click save page, then you have a userpage. If you want to have the userboxes like on my page, you need to create a page called User:Simpsons fan 66/UserBoxes, then copy all of the coding from User:Gran2/Userboxes and keep all the userboxes you want, you can find more here: WP:UBX. Once you have created your userbox page, if you want the scroll thing...

{| style="float: right; margin-left: 1em; margin-bottom: 0.5em; width: 270px; border: #99B3FF solid 1px; clear: right" {{Boxboxtop}} {{User:Simpsons fan 66/Userboxes}} {{Boxboxbottom}}

Put that on your userpage. Gran2 08:30, 6 August 2007 (UTC)

Sorry didn't see your message until just a minute ago. Glad your excited! If your doing a character page Homer and Troy McClure's pages are good guides. And for episodes, Homer's Phobia, You Only Move Twice and Homer at the Bat are probably the best examples. Gran2 22:03, 7 August 2007 (UTC)
I tried a few things out, but it didn't fix it. The coding looks fine so I don't know why it isn't working, sorry. Gran2 10:30, 9 August 2007 (UTC)
Okay I've now fixed it! One of the userboxes had a typo in the coding so that stop it from working, and another just didn't work with the scroll bar for some reason, so I had to remove it altogether. So there you go. Gran2 12:45, 9 August 2007 (UTC)

Reply[edit]

The format for citing DVD commentaries used in GA and FAs is:

<ref>{{cite video | people=Jean, Al|year=2004|title=The Simpsons season 5 DVD commentary for the episode "Cape Feare"| medium=DVD||publisher=20th Century Fox}}</ref>

and just change things where necessary. I hope that helps. -- Scorpion0422 00:59, 16 August 2007 (UTC)

I think multiple people are cited on the Troy McClure page, so take a look at that. If you are interested in getting any pages to GA status, you'll need the DVDs and you should follow the examples set by Cape Feare, Homer's Phobia, Homer's Enemy or You Only Move Twice, all of which are FAs. Or, Itchy & Scratchy & Marge which is only a GA, but I always use it as a model when I'm working on new pages. -- Scorpion0422 01:25, 16 August 2007 (UTC)
Most of the production info comes from the DVD commentaries, but you might get lucky and find an online article that has some useable stuff. As for reception section, I usually let Gran2 do that (He's better at finding sources than me), but we use the bbc website, and the various IGN and EW lists where they are applicable. -- Scorpion0422 04:59, 17 August 2007 (UTC)
Basically, we don't bother with the post-commentary episodes because it would be near impossible to assemble a production section that is GA worthy. The Simpsons isn't the kind of show that gets a tonne of coverage from reliable sources and hence commentaries are a must. You can still improve season 11+ episode pages, they just likely wouldn't reach GA status... yet. -- Scorpion0422 05:07, 17 August 2007 (UTC)
by post-commentary, I basically just mean the episodes in the seasons that have not yet been released on DVD. So episodes from seasons 11-19. -- Scorpion0422 14:30, 17 August 2007 (UTC)
Unfortunately TV.com isn't useable. Usually, you can get away with a small one-line Reception section. One of the few websites we can use is the bbc website. Take a look at Itchy & Scratchy & Marge for an example of a small reception section and Last Exit to Springfield for a large one. There are 2 THOH GAs: Treehouse of Horror V and Treehouse of Horror VII, there is a source from IGN.com that names the best THOH segments, which is useable. -- Scorpion0422 01:31, 23 August 2007 (UTC)
If there's no reliable source (and SNPP is not one of them), then it should be removed. -- Scorpion0422 14:35, 23 August 2007 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Thanks for the award, much appreciated! Gran2 06:27, 5 September 2007 (UTC)

A Streetcar Named Marge was Scorp, with a good bit of work on it, done by Zagalejo. As for GA/FA noms, its best to get articles to GA first, then FA at some point after that. GA noms are done here and FA noms are done here. GA is a process where you nominate an article, and at some point after you have nominated it, any user can come along and review it. Either passing it, failing it or putting it on hold. FA is a process where you nominate a page, and then many people read it, and either support or oppose it being an FA. And anyone can nominate an article for either thing. Gran2 14:27, 5 September 2007 (UTC)
As said, anyone can nomiante an article, especially if you've done the most work on it. And I'll have a look at the article later. Gran2 06:18, 6 September 2007 (UTC)

Reply[edit]

If you want refs to group together, you have to name them. ie. <ref name="blahblahblah">citation stuff here</ref> and then the next time you use that ref, you can just add: <ref name="blahblahblah"/>. Note the back slash at the end of the second ref. Hope that helps. -- Scorpion0422 12:46, 11 September 2007 (UTC)

BBC and the commentaries are the best sources, but perhaps there's some mention in one of the other books. If there is no source, then it should be removed. -- Scorpion0422 23:51, 20 September 2007 (UTC)
Don't worry too much about the reception and cultural refs sections. It's a well-written production section that is key, so perhaps you should give the commentary another listen. I'll try and find some online sources. It was sent to critics before it aired, so I might be able to find some stuff. -- Scorpion0422 00:16, 21 September 2007 (UTC)
Here's an EW source that mentions it [1]. -- Scorpion0422 00:17, 21 September 2007 (UTC)
It might be worth a small mention. I apologize, but I'm extremely busy right now, so I really don't have time to listen to a commentary. Sorry. But, add what you think is notable and I'll look it over for you. -- Scorpion0422 03:05, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

Kamp Krusty[edit]

Looking better for sure, lose the bullet points though.

On another topic, you can only link copyrighted images you've uploaded on your user page, but not show them in a decorative gallery. Alientraveller 09:05, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

Is this right?[edit]

"After the premiere of the episode, James L. Brooks called the writers and suggested that the "Kamp Krusty" script should be used for a The Simpsons film. However, the episode ran very short, and to make it barely fit the maximum time the Kamp Krusty Song had to be lengthened by a number of verses. As Jean told Brooks, "If we can't make 18 minutes out of this episode how are we supposed to make 80?" This was also the last episode to be animated at Klasky Csupo."

I think there may be an error in that paragraph, because why would Brooks want to make the episode into a movie AFTER it aired? -- Scorpion0422 16:36, 1 October 2007 (UTC)

KK[edit]

Sorry I didn't respond sooner, I read your message and then completely forgot about it. As for the reception section, well I'd search for some reviews, usually reviews of the Season 4 DVD should give a few comments about the episode. [2] [3] [4] for an example. Also, I would definitly remove the bulletpoints from the cultural references section. Gran2 09:42, 22 September 2007 (UTC)

Congrats on the pass, here's something to celebrate it:

For joining The Simpsons Wikiproject, and actually doing something good. Thanks! Gran2 15:34, 5 October 2007 (UTC)
Also I think you're the first person that isn't me Scorpion or Maitch to get a Simpsons GA, well done! Gran2 15:34, 5 October 2007 (UTC)

Hit 'N' Run[edit]

Glad to see someone trying to do one of the game pages, can't wait to see what you've done. As for the plot: mission titles and the subsections for each are pointless and trivial. Just a basic summary of the plot of the game, without any subsections is fine. Gran2 14:18, 4 October 2007 (UTC)

Nope, sorry, I only have the PS2 game as well. Gran2 06:05, 5 October 2007 (UTC)
Sandbox - simply start a page called User:Simpsons fan 66/Sandbox and for the signature, the code needed is - [[User:Simpsons fan 66|Simpsons fan]]<sup>[[User talk:Simpsons fan 66|66]]</sup> Gran2 07:25, 6 October 2007 (UTC)

I think the page looks good, but it has too much in-universe information. If you simply wanted to make it look better, it's okay, but if you intend to try to get it promoted, you'll need more real world information and a lot more sources. There are many different video game FAs out there, and I suggest taking a look at some of them and then you'll get a better idea of what you can do. One is The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask, and you can find a list of other video game FAs here. I hope that helps. -- Scorpion0422 00:00, 10 October 2007 (UTC)

If you want to, then go for it, but no pressure. It would be difficult to find sources for it. I will say that your version is a tad heavy on the in-universe stuff. If you just want to clean it up, cut down the in-universe by 25% or so, and add in a few more sources and it would be fine. -- Scorpion0422 00:10, 10 October 2007 (UTC)

In case your interested[edit]

The drive to get season 9 to FT status that has been kicking around for a while has suddenly gained some momentum and if you'd be willing to help out, it would be much appreciated. You can find out more here. -- Scorpion0422 01:43, 24 October 2007 (UTC)

I'm not sure why season 9, but two users chose it and they are pretty enthusiastic about season 9, so I'm not going to fight it. Sure, it will take a lot of work, but we had less done on season 8 and Gran and I got it done in two months. It would be great if you would be willing to help out. -- Scorpion0422 01:54, 24 October 2007 (UTC)
Season 9 wouldn't be my first choice, but if it gets people enthusiastic about the Project, then I'm not complaining. The commentaries aren't a MUST, they are just helpful. If you want to help find online sources, use books or copyedit plot sections, that would be EXTREMELY helpful. And I'll take a look at Mr. Plow. -- Scorpion0422 02:02, 24 October 2007 (UTC)
The page looks good. Just add another image and shorten the plot and I'd say it's GAC worthy. -- Scorpion0422 02:30, 24 October 2007 (UTC)
Go for a GAC, it'll be a couple of weeks or so before anyone gets to it. Tomorrow I'll take a better look at the page. -- Scorpion0422 02:36, 25 October 2007 (UTC)
Just saw Mr. Plow, great job! Gran2 08:53, 25 October 2007 (UTC)
That's what happens when you live in oppositeland. Anyway, what are you going to work on next? My jedi powers tell me that next in line will be... Homer the Heretic. -- Scorpion0422 03:32, 28 October 2007 (UTC)
"Only a master of EVIL Darth! And, I say The Phantom Menace sucked more!" Anyway, my next "random character of the month" project is... Ned diddly Flan-derino. If you would like to help, I would REALLY appreciate it, because it would involve listening to a LOT of commentaries (at least a dozen), although digging up sources for a reception and cultural influence section shouldn't be TOO hard... -- Scorpion0422 04:03, 28 October 2007 (UTC)
Pretty much any one for an episode in which he is prominent, or an episode that contains a small but iconic Flanders moment. Although the more I think of it, the more I think that it would be better if one person (me) did all of the listening because then that one person would be able to judge better on what is/isn't relevant, whereas with two opinions in there, some vital stuff could be missed. If you do want to help, you could help on the online front (ie. find interviews, stuff for a reception and cultural influence section) and help with a Role in The Simpsons section. -- Scorpion0422 04:09, 28 October 2007 (UTC)
I think it's "They Saved Lisa's Brain". -- Scorpion0422 00:40, 29 October 2007 (UTC)
I'm not sure if it's necessary, but I'll think of it. -- Scorpion0422 00:55, 29 October 2007 (UTC)

Continuity[edit]

The continuity section? I'd axe it for sure, its pretty much uncitedable, and to be fair isn't very interesting. But overall that page seems to be coming on. Gran2 15:57, 30 October 2007 (UTC)

Medal of Honor: Airborne[edit]

Hi, i have recently reviewed the article Medal of Honor: Airborne for GA, as someone supposedly left it "under review" for two weeks. Please read the comments at Talk:Medal of Honor: Airborne and leave me a message on my talk page when you have responded and/or made the appropriate changes. Thanks. M3tal H3ad 03:30, 1 November 2007 (UTC)

Reply[edit]

Yes, Halloween is long over, and yes we do "celebrate" it in Canada. It's kind of fun, but really nothing special, although I guess I would have answered differently 10 years ago. -- Scorpion0422 15:35, 4 November 2007 (UTC)

Not really, but if you could find some sources, then it might be better. -- Scorpion0422 00:07, 19 November 2007 (UTC)

THOH III[edit]

ok, i'll leave it Ctjf83 22:29, 7 November 2007 (UTC)

Please do not change words to UK/Australian english. It is an American show, so we use american english. Thank you, Ctjf83 22:46, 7 November 2007 (UTC)
I was just skimming around, and if you look at the GA articles for The Simpsons, the cultural refs are in paragraph form, not bullets. Ctjf83 23:17, 7 November 2007 (UTC)
Looks good, I don't know about the cult refs, but it seems fine. So i'd nom it if I were you. Gran2 21:13, 8 November 2007 (UTC)
ok, thats fine...nothing u can do against image natzi Ctjf83 talk 08:19, 9 December 2007 (UTC)

Per here you might want to put a new pic in place of Image:Bart ClockworkOrange.jpg i'll let u take care of it Ctjf83 talk 09:29, 9 December 2007 (UTC)

I agree, i was just going with what the reviewer Shudde said Ctjf83 talk 09:50, 9 December 2007 (UTC)

Reply[edit]

I know there is another way to do this, but I forget how, but for now, try this: <div style="float:right; width:48%;"></div>

Then our text will look like this.

Like I said though, there is a different way. -- Scorpion0422 22:42, 4 December 2007 (UTC)

  1. "Theme Song" – 1:27
  2. "Finale" - 4.55
  1. "Intro" – 2:15
  2. "Other finale" - 6.66
I think the standard here is to list stuff down the left side, then the right. -- Scorpion0422 23:17, 5 December 2007 (UTC)
I'm not sure, I've already given him a Simpsons star and for some reason, there isn't a portal barnstar. -- Scorpion0422 16:17, 9 December 2007 (UTC)

Some good news, it looks like season 4 will be the next Featured topic drive season, so you'll be able to help us out. -- Scorpion0422 02:07, 23 December 2007 (UTC)

TSM[edit]

Thanks for the suggestion, I'll consider adding a few sentences to sum up the soundtrack article at some point. As for the DVD, I should be getting it on Monday. Gran2 23:14, 8 December 2007 (UTC)

plasma lamp[edit]

Incidentally, thanks for the wording change to "hazards" on plasma lamp, it's indeed fitting and would hardly have occured to us non-native-English - speakers. I'd finish with a suitably inoffensive humorous, envious insult to native speakers but can't think of any right now. --Kizor is in a constant state of flux 13:42, 23 December 2007 (UTC)

I actually gave up... I have no idea how to fix the TV from messing up. Do you think you could find someone who does advertisements for other WikiProjects, like the Video Game WikiProject's ad., and ask them to fix it? xihix(talk) 22:26, 19 January 2008 (UTC)

I was using Adobe ImageReady. xihix(talk) 22:31, 19 January 2008 (UTC)

Re: Advertisement[edit]

Hello Gurch. I understand you created the advertisment (Qxz-ad31.gif) for Wikiproject video games. I am from Wikiproject Simpsons, and we are trying to create a similar ad. We have the text and font worked out, but when the text goes through a transition, the image fades in and out. How can we resolve this problem. Here is the current version of our ad Image:Wpdohad5.gif --Simpsons fan 66 23:03, 19 January 2008 (UTC)

Done. Please note that derivative works of GFDL-licensed images must themselves be released only under the terms of the GFDL, and not into the public domain. I have changed the license tag accordingly – Gurch 02:11, 21 January 2008 (UTC)

A potential chat session with Bill Oakley[edit]

We at the Simpsons WikiProject have managed to get into contact with the one and only Bill Oakley (who showran The Simpsons from season 7 to 8) and he has agreed to send us some images and to do an IRC chat in the future with us so that we can ask questions about things that we can use in articles. The transcript of this chat will hopefully be posted at NoHomers.net, which I think will be a good enough sorce. Failing that, we'll try The Simpsons Archive. Every member is more than welcome to take part, which will be held at our #wpsimpsons channel. Because not everyone will be able to make the chat, a page has been made where any member can post questions that can be asked. Remember, no fan questions, and due to a lack of time, try to limit it to ones that will help improve an article. That page is here. If you have any questions, ask myself, Xihix (who is the one in contact with him) or post it at WT:DOH. -- Scorpion0422 02:51, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

It was more luck than anything. As for IRC, go here and go to the channel #wpsimpsons. Give it a try now because there are a couple of us on. -- Scorpion0422 03:08, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

I actually have no idea. I haven't heard from Xihix in a while. Why don't you come on to IRC? -- Scorpion0422 03:45, 7 February 2008 (UTC)

Homer the Heretic[edit]

Hey, I've just recently passed Homer the Heretic as a GA. I fixed a few minor things, but otherwise it looked fine. If you have any extra time, I'd invite you to take a look and review my article Diversity Day. Anyway, congratulations on a great article, and have a great day!Mastrchf91 (t/c) 03:21, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

If you disagree, you could ask another reviewer to take a look at it, like Masem or Canadian Paul. -- Scorpion0422 17:43, 18 February 2008 (UTC)
No problem. Sorry I forgot to give you a log, but any changes I felt were needed I change myself. And no, I didn't do it for a review of my own article. Regards, Mastrchf91 (t/c) 02:17, 21 February 2008 (UTC)

An Oakley update[edit]

I contacted Bill Oakley myself because Xihix has been MIA for over a week and he responded. He didn't say anything about images, but I think he would rather answer questions via e-mail rather than during an IRC chat. I told him that would be okay and that we would hopefully send him our question list within a week, so if you have any to add, please do so soon. -- Scorpion0422 01:28, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

Re:TAGAP[edit]

You don't have to change to the template - if you want to keep it, keep it - but a lot of Wikipedians like the standardisation of collapsible tracklists across multiple articles. The template shouldn't be creating any white spaces though, it should only do that if an {{-}} is put at the end. -- Sabre (talk) 13:02, 13 April 2008 (UTC)

Re: Congratulations[edit]

Hi Simpsons fan 66,
Thanks for the compliments! But I'm afraid I can't really help you as far as tutorial websites beyond suggesting a Google search. I strongly subscribe to the trial and error/self teaching method of photography. The best way to learn IMO is to go out and take photos and (ideally) get someone to criticize them and then go out and do it better next time. --Fir0002 05:31, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

  • Yep, I agree with Fir0002, this is probably the best method of learning photography. Do a google search when you have a specific query, but if you just want to learn more about how the camera works, take a photo. See how the photo turns out. Then change the aperture and see how it turns out. Try taking a photo of a moving object with different shutter speeds, etc. Photography is about knowing the right situations to use different techniques and although there is underlying mathematics that explains how the camera and lenses work, it is counterproductive to understand the mathematics until you have a 'feel' for photography. It is definitely more of an art than a science and difficult to teach. Better to just 'do', and improve your techniques with practise. Just my two cents. Diliff | (Talk) (Contribs) 08:10, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

91.0.246.65[edit]

I don't care that they have provided proof against the Chinese orchestra paragraph (although I would like to see the cover to see if it is truly the 'official' soundtrack). I only care that they repeatedly reverted the page without discussing it on the talk page. I decided not to take any action against them because they did the reverting on different I.P. addresses. I thought the numbers were the same, but they are slightly different. I think the admins over at the 3RR notice board would probably fail the block because of that. --Ghostexorcist (talk) 14:32, 15 August 2008 (UTC)

Kung Fu Panda assessment[edit]

Thanks for your request for assessment. If you go to the article's talk page and show the WikiProject Films banner, you should see a section called "Improving this article" that includes instructions on how to assess B-class against our five criteria. (This is also described at the Template:Film instructions.) Let me know if you have any questions! Thanks, Girolamo Savonarola (talk) 02:13, 25 August 2008 (UTC)

Well, if you think that it meets the five criteria, then please feel free to re-assess at B-class. Just make certain that you also check-off the five criteria using the banner parameters. I removed importance because it no longer is an active parameter. Girolamo Savonarola (talk) 01:50, 26 August 2008 (UTC)
No, I'm not aware of any such rule to that effect. Dive right in! Girolamo Savonarola (talk) 02:02, 26 August 2008 (UTC)

I have just taken a look at the article and made some minor corrections throughout. I believe the article is B-class, but there are a few things that should be fixed/expanded on first:

  • The plot section is currently at over 1,100 words and should be trimmed down to 700 to 900 words. I'd help you here, but I haven't seen the film yet and prefer not to have it spoiled for me (sorry). Cut out any excessive details or reword some statements that have fluff.
  • Expand the box office section mentioning how much it has made worldwide thus far and any other records it may have broken.
  • Expand the Franchise development section a bit more if possible, there may be more current information available.
  • Expand the video game sentence from one line. Mention a few more sentences (perhaps about game sales, critical reception, what systems it is for, etc.) to help provide more coverage for readers.

Other than this the article should reach B-class status. You can either change it yourself or let me know and I'll change it after taking another look. Good work so far and let me know if you have any questions. Happy editing! --Nehrams2020 (talk) 09:09, 26 August 2008 (UTC)

The plot still would need to be trimmed a bit. (For WALL-E, it appears that the film's plot was of sufficient length when it was passed as a GA, but has now been expanded a little too much.) I'm not trying to limit the film, but for animated children's films, they generally doesn't have a complicated plot to warrant such a large section. Try again to reduce it, or consider having another editor help you out. Also, the image in the cast section cannot be included in the article unless it directly illustrates something within the article for critical commentary since it is a non-free image. If you could find a source, for example, that reflected on the animation used in the film, or directly wrote about each of the characters, then it could be included. However, as it stands now, it just illustrates the characters, and wouldn't be allowed for advancing to GA and further. Also was there anything that you could find on expanding the Franchise development intro further? --Nehrams2020 (talk) 09:36, 30 August 2008 (UTC)
I have assessed it at B class (our project doesn't utilize the C-class), and I think you should continue on to GA if you're interested. You would have to make the changes that I suggested (while also complying with the GA criteria and checking out the project's MOS guidelines). Concerning the image, you could attempt to state that the writers/animators chose each animal based on a certain type of combat and delve into it further to help justify using the image. Source the information and do your best to ascertain that it will be for demonstrating critical commentary and you should be fine. Let me know if you do make an attempt at GA once you've modified the article and I'll see if it needs anything else. Good work so far. --Nehrams2020 (talk) 21:42, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

Concession[edit]

I like the comic too, but unfortunately WikiFur is not likely to be viewed as a reliable source, and I'm not convinced there are any such sources out there. I've removed it from the list until there is an article on it which references such sources. GreenReaper (talk) 13:35, 1 October 2008 (UTC)

The Simpsons Star[edit]

With the Simpsons WikiProject having reached it's goal of getting every single article about a season 1-9 episode, 203 in total, of The Simpsons to GA status. With that accomplished, I am trying to thank every member (and non-member) who was involved in the effort in some way.

WP:DOH has reached its long-time goal of getting every classic era episode, 203 in total, to GA. You earned this because you were helped us a lot during the first few drives, particularily the one for the fourth season. -- Scorpion0422 II (Talk) 00:03, 20 April 2010 (UTC)

Non-free rationale for File:Loper concept art.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Loper concept art.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under non-free content criteria, but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia is acceptable. Please go to the file description page, and edit it to include a non-free rationale.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 10:55, 18 February 2012 (UTC)
