Do not add your personal interpretations and analysis
Our policies require that any interpretations and analysis MUST be sourced to third party reliable sources and not based solely on Wikipedia editors opinions. The interpretation that Lady Pasta is Lady Gaga or a parody has been challenged many many times and the assertion cannot be added to the article without providing a third party source for the claim. See also WP:SYN. Active Banana ( bananaphone 14:19, 25 August 2010 (UTC)
- That's all fine and dandy, but the episode's song by Lady Pasta is in the same rhythm and tune as "Bad Romance" (as said even in the epidoe captions) and she dresses like Lady Gaga did in the song. I'm all for others having different interpretations, but this one really sticks out. I'm not objecting to the WP rules, but it just seems a bit odd that in this case we need more third party sources. Wouldn't the captions work? Maybe if you watch the epidoe you'll see what I mean. --The Wing Dude, Musical Extraordinaire (talk) 22:09, 19 February 2011 (UTC)
I don't think that this article should list the original episode as being called "Hey Apple." This video was never called this and it even has a title at the beginning that says "The Annoying Orange." I do agree that "Hey Apple" was a notable catchphrase of Orange in this episode, but it isn't and never was the name of it. I think that this should just be listed as "The Annoying Orange." —Preceding unsigned comment added by AutoMe (talk • contribs) 17:00, 18 September 2010 (UTC)
It's changed now. I also think it should stay this way!
OK NOW ITS SERIOUS!
Season Overview of the Annoying Orange
I was having a little bit of trouble with the season overview. And now it's connected with the episode list. Can someone fix it? Here's the link: [] —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 01:31, 13 November 2010 (UTC)
Annoying Orange: Plumpkin
- tthat is a primary source and acceptable for certain limited purposes, however, 3rd party sources are also required.Active Banana (bananaphone 11:54, 10 April 2011 (UTC)
Third party sources seem like something to get the list of episodes in order.
You left that comment in December 2010. It is now January 2012. It has been about twelve months since you left that comment. Nobody has objected within the first fourteen days, or up until now no edits had been made to the section, so it is tolerable that links can be. However, we have a different objection for the section above, saying that references would be intolerable by WP:CITE. I like your thinking, but that does not go on the article.
Actually, Obi-wan, I don't think we would need references to add links. In that case, I shall make this edit now.
Annoying Orange vs. Gecko
The episode features Orange annoying a gecko in a car insurance commercial. The title is "Annoying Orange vs. Gecko (Geico Spoof)". The description says "CARCO is not an actual car insurance company. This is a SPOOF of Geico." The announcer at the beginning is listed in the credits as "Geico Dude". Our final conclusion: It's not a Geico parody!
Seriously, the fact that it's a Geico parody should STAY. The guy who keeps removing it claims that there is no official source for it being a Geico parody, but in addition to the fact that Geico is mentioned in THREE DIFFERENT SPOTS, I am not aware of any other car insurance commercial that uses a gecko.
- I'm in agreement with this, although I know why the person taking it down is doing it. It's because no source is provided for the fact. However, we can include the fact in the title becuase the "(GEICO Spoof)" is in the original title. I'm gonna do that now. --The Wing Dude, Musical Extraordinaire (talk) 22:51, 25 February 2011 (UTC)
This IS a Geico parody
There really IS no difference between a spoof and a parody, as far as I am concerned. Daneboe also used the word "spoof" again. In the first Wazzup, it is entitled:
"Annoying Orange Wazzup".
The "Annoying Orange", was purely from the episode's entitlement alone. That was not from the "Annoying Orange-" which I believe first appeared in "Passion of the fruit.
I have links to all three episodes:
Those were all mentioned.
I also think that links should be added to every episode.
I will go edit that myself.--ObiwanLostToBarney (talk) 21:55, 15 December 2011 (UTC) Well, actually I won't waste my life doing that but everyone can do 1. — Preceding unsigned comment added by ObiwanLostToBarney (talk • contribs) 02:05, 22 December 2011 (UTC)
The Annoying Orange Sitcome Version is Extended?
The Annoying Orange Sitcom Version is not an extended episode of the Annoying Valentine. Believe me I have checked. Just thought you'd like to know. -James Pandora Adams
This page needs reliable sources for season divisions and for production codes. If there cannot be any such reliable sources found, then the information cannot go on the page. --184.108.40.206 (talk) 07:15, 20 March 2011 (UTC)
- I don't know if this is a reliable source, but there are seasons on the episode guide of The Annoying Orange Wkia 220.127.116.11 (talk) 19:13, 28 March 2011 (UTC)
Just try YouTube. Just thought I'd let ya know.
Please keep it clean
Over the past weeks, I have noticed several anonymous users adding original research and writing content from their own point of view and not from a neutral point of view. Also, some anonymous users repeatedly revert my edits without explanation and without discussion here.
Purely disruptive editing
Most recently, I have noticed several IP addresses who may have intended to try helping out this article, but some have been editing disruptively. I know they may not be familiar with WP's policies and guidelines, and I have tried to talk out the matter with them, but they continued with disruption, totally ignored my help like it was a waste of my time. The disruption includes:
- Removal of maintenance tags without explanation – 1, 2
- Removal of my comments without explanation – 1
I did not list everything.
I know that everyone makes mistakes and that life is a theatre of learning. But making pointless edits to the article without explanation and for totally ignoring me, also an editor, and also trying not to compromise with me at all, is downright rude and depressing.
I am temperamental just like some people, and I think I do show some ownership of the article. But I can do nothing else but revert to the last good-faith reversion if the article keeps being injured like this.
Here are the IP's who are involved in making most of the disruptive edits:
I do appreciate's improvements to the article; the user may have changed the meaning of episode descriptions (at times) but made all of their edits all in good faith.
The overall treatment the IP's have given to me is negative and hostile, and this needs to stop. I am pretty sure if the IP editors want to sort the matter out with me they can reply to this message or leave a note on my talk page.
I think if this won't stop whatsover, I'm done with helping out the article. It can be ruined by the editors daily. But the bad it does will make the article more confusing.
- I have already issued a last warning to this edit. It clearly added content violating WP:NPOV and WP:OR and removed my comments again without warning. I asked the user to read this message on this talk page and to reply if they wished to, but he ignored my message and continued on with disruption. It will be a report if it happens again. --Bryce Wilson | talk 05:03, 19 September 2011 (UTC) per
"Annoying Super Mario"?
The episode is actually called, "Annoying Orange-Super Mario". However, just put "Super Mario", since in all the namings you took a way the "Annoying Orange-". --ObiwanLostToBarney (talk) 21:34, 15 December 2011 (UTC)
For this one, I think it might be appropriate to cite references to the episode. Simple. Click the reference, then click the link. Then you'll see that the name is "Super Mario". I have to have more people agree.
This article was perfect, until vandalizers had to go and screw it up. That "Paramount Shorts" section makes absolutely NO sense, comparing all the episodes to movies, and the coding in the last one is wrong. I will REMOVE that section unless anyone objects within the next 14 days. Please note this section, and respond if you have an objection to removal of this non-sensical garbage.
I've noticed that somewhere around the first season the episodes were poorly lined up and not in order. Why? The explanation is simple: When the first season was beginning, annoying orange was not notable. Around the time when it started being notable, the beginning of the list was created, but sloppily in order. I am writing this on a Saturday, yesterday was Friday, and every Friday a new episode comes out. I shall make this clean-up edit now.
I will add a reliable source from YouTube.
I think that this should be divided into seasons. 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012... It helps organize the page. I shall make this edit now.
- No, I strongly advise you not to do so without a reliable source to support that "seasons" exist. --Bmusician 14:32, 3 March
YouTube Here. Search "Annoying Orange" and you will see even YouTube marks it with seasons. However, I can't work up the wikitext to work on it, so I'll let someone else talk to me about it on my talk page.
Oh and take a look at this.
Can I have someone to help me out with the wiki code?
This page seems to have had a lot of random changes to the episode release dates. This seems to be a common form on vandalism. See List of Mortal Kombat: Legacy episodes. I am not sure what date changes are accurate, and which ones are vandalism. I tried to track all the episodes on Youtube but their simply is too much. It would be nice to have someone familiar with the show help fix it. Thanks. Oldag07 (talk) 04:51, 6 February 2014 (UTC)
