Talk:List of South Park episodes

Jump to: navigation, search
Former featured list List of South Park episodes is a former featured list. Please see the links under Article milestones below for its original nomination page and why it was removed. If it has improved again to featured list standard, you may renominate the article to become a featured list.

Director/Writer thing[edit]

Is the "Director" and "Writers" part really necessary? Most episodes, and for the past few seasons ALL episodes, are written and directed by Trey Parker. A handful from seasons 2 to 6 were directed by Eric Stough and occasionally from other staff members (co-creator Matt Stone directed two, "Spontaneous Combustion" and "Jakovasaurs"). In the early years there were "written by" credits given to other writers, but otherwise it's mostly just Trey.

It just seems redundant to me.

Page format[edit]

Hello. I believe my format on how this page is right and so far two editors have agreed that it is appropriate for this page and I assume I'm supposed to wait for consensus or something right? Cartoon Fanboy (talk) 22:27, 2 January 2016 (UTC)

I've gotten no response back so does that mean I can revert or what. Cartoon Fanboy (talk) 00:27, 3 January 2016 (UTC)
No editors have agreed to your edits. You seem to be confused over this so I have addressed it on your talk page. Reverting at this time would be unwise as you're just one edit off violating WP:3RR. --AussieLegend () 03:12, 3 January 2016 (UTC)
He's been blocked, as a sockpuppet of a blocked user. Don't be surprised if another "new" editor comes along later trying to make the same change: he does that. -Jason A. Quest (talk) 16:36, 4 January 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for the heads up Jason. - Favre1fan93 (talk) 03:18, 5 January 2016 (UTC)

Inclusion of film in the series overview table[edit]

Since the IPs haven't started this, I guess I will. The film should not be in the series overview table for an article that is a list of episodes. The film is not and episode, and as such, does not directly fall under the scope of this article. It is properly mentioned and included further down the article in the "Shorts, sketches, and other appearances" section. Additionally, an IP quoted in this revision the following: "Following the standards for other TV shows that have feature-length films, it should have a redirection to the movie's article on the episode's section. It must be featured between the seasons on which it was originally released." Where did this come from, because this isn't a "standard" for other series. Yes, they may do that per WP:OSE, but that does not mean it is correct. Additionally, @Coffee:, as the protecting admin, I kindly ask you to restore the WP:STATUSQUO of the article at this point, which is this revision (noting that the status quo changed with an IP making the adjustment here for the first time). - Favre1fan93 (talk) 16:17, 3 May 2016 (UTC)

I can sort of see where the IPs are coming from, as this is common in articles. An example is List of The Simpsons episodes, which is a featured list. By comparison, List of Hannah Montana episodes, which is not FL, uses the same layout that this list did. Personally, I think there are arguments for both methods. If a film forms part of the storyline, then there may be value in including it chronologically (see Rugrats "All Growed Up"), but if it is a completely separate storyline, listing it at the end is more appropriate. How we should list the film here is something that needs consensus. As for reverting to the status quo, the wording of that essay has been softened recently by two editors who aren't listening so, while it may have appeared that this was appropriate in the past, it's now just an ambiguous suggestion. --AussieLegend () 16:38, 3 May 2016 (UTC)
Yes I can too see where the IPs are coming from, but as I've pointed out, this is a list of episodes article, and the film is not. If it were to be included, then it is not entirely appropriate within this article scope. I'm not saying to outright remove the film, because I do see the value of having it. But it shouldn't be inserted between the relevant seasons. As for the status quo, from that essay, the end says During a dispute, until a consensus is established, the status quo should remain. That is what I was advocating, that as this is being discussed, the relevant status quo be reinstated until a consensus regarding its position be reached. - Favre1fan93 (talk) 18:15, 3 May 2016 (UTC)

No episode on October 5?[edit]

What happened there? (I'm not in the US) --uKER (talk) 09:07, 10 October 2016 (UTC)

See South Park (season 20). The season had several scheduled "dark weeks" with no planned episodes, as was done with the prior season. Hoof Hearted (talk) 19:25, 27 July 2017 (UTC)

Unlock the page[edit]

Can someone unlock the page South Park (season 21) because it's continued? (talk) 13:20, 11 September 2017 (UTC)

If you want specific changes, please feel free to request them here and they can be made. Or you can create your own user account and you will be able to do so yourself. Cheers! --Ebyabe talk - Union of Opposites ‖ 13:36, 11 September 2017 (UTC)
