May 2017[edit]

Legendary Dudas & Template:Nickelodeon original series[edit]

Say, Template:Nickelodeon original series has Legendary Dudas under "former" programming, but I see nothing at the article about a(n "official") cancellation announcement... If I'm reading this correctly, it shouldn't be added to the "former" pile until August 2017, yes? --IJBall (contribstalk) 22:31, 2 May 2017 (UTC)

@IJBall: Correct. Same deal with Bella and the Bulldogs. Amaury (talk | contribs) 23:45, 2 May 2017 (UTC)
Hey, Crashletes and Jagger Eaton... have also been removed from that template – is that correct, or not?... --IJBall (contribstalk) 00:32, 3 May 2017 (UTC)
@IJBall: Definitely not! Crashletes's last episode was on April 23 and Jagger Eaton's Mega Life's last episode was on April 2, and both of those are pretty recent. They are likely the season finales, especially in Jagger Eaton's Mega Life's case because of the order being for 20 episodes, though we of course can't be sure of that because things can change, such as was the case with Henry Danger's second season episode count. They're also non-scripted series which means they work a little differently than scripted series. For example, lower ratings compared to other series, such as 0.85 million total viewers, is considered to be okay because non-scripted series cost way less than scripted series. Jagger Eaton's Mega Life's premiere ratings of 0.96 million total viewers was considered excellent. (Coincidentally, the second episode got the exact same total viewers, even in its non-rounded number.) So because of that, season renewals can be announced after a season has ended, whereas with scripted series, they're usually, though not always, announced during the current season. Look at the dates for Crashletes's season one finale and season two renewal announcement for an example. Amaury (talk | contribs) 00:46, 3 May 2017 (UTC)
Scratch that Crashletes example. I forgot about its oddity there if you remember. A better example would be Paradise Run. Amaury (talk | contribs) 00:49, 3 May 2017 (UTC)
I'll let you add those two back to the template, then. But this is another one you may want to add to your watchlist: like the Disney template, it looks like there's a lot of problematic editing going on at this one... --IJBall (contribstalk) 01:32, 3 May 2017 (UTC)
@IJBall: You weren't kidding. I'm already dealing with a problematic editor who thinks they get to decide what goes there and what doesn't, and looking at the history, I see this has been going on for a while. They're trying to argue over a technicality, I would guess, of I don't know what. Unless otherwise noted, like in the case with Ride which was a Canadian import, if it airs on Nickelodeon, it is a Nickelodeon series. @MPFitz1968: You seem to be up around this time. More eyes wouldn't hurt. Face-smile.svg Amaury (talk | contribs) 06:52, 3 May 2017 (UTC)

Henry Danger "Villains" section[edit]

Also, can I please remove the Henry Danger "Villains" from the 'Cast' section?! I don't think any of those listed are actually "recurring" – have any of those appeared in more than 2–3 episodes?!... Pinging MPFitz1968 here as well, as I think he may watch Henry Danger too... --IJBall (contribstalk) 22:53, 2 May 2017 (UTC)

@IJBall: If you feel it's better without it, go ahead, LOL! The villains listed there now, though, have appeared in three or more episodes, yes. Remember when you previously contacted me regarding that section? (It was either regarding trimming or grammar improvements, I can't remember.) I took care of that then and removed non-recurring villains, though, really, they could just be moved to the recurring section, in my opinion, if you decide to keep them. Amaury (talk | contribs) 23:45, 2 May 2017 (UTC)
 Done --IJBall (contribstalk) 00:21, 3 May 2017 (UTC)
@IJBall: On a semi-related note, I'm thinking about creating character list articles for some of these series, such as Henry Danger, where there are enough characters containing significant descriptions. Unlike Famous in Love where there's currently only one season, these have two or more seasons. What do you think? Amaury (talk | contribs) 00:26, 3 May 2017 (UTC)
Henry Danger and The Thundermans would likely qualify for separate character list-articles. But you'll want to be careful with how you handle the "non-recurring" characters (e.g. The Time Jerker) as there will be a lot of IPs that will want to add fancruft entries like that... --IJBall (contribstalk) 00:29, 3 May 2017 (UTC)
@IJBall: Those two are done and have been added here as usual: User:Amaury/sandbox#Character Lists (CS). Would you double-check the start class parameters on the talk pages and make sure those are right? As these are new, the more watchers, the merrier: Geraldo Perez, MPFitz1968, Nyuszika7H. If you are interested in these long-term, you guys know the drill. Please update your entries in my sandbox. Face-wink.svg Also, I see many other articles in my sandbox, both current and former, that could benefit from a split to a character list, including, but not limited to: Backstage, Bunk'd, K.C. Undercover, Austin & Ally, Dog with a Blog, and Jessie. However, I'll just leave it at those two for now. Amaury (talk | contribs) 02:50, 3 May 2017 (UTC)
'Start'-class is more defensible for List of The Thundermans characters – both are probably long enough for Start-class in terms of prose length, but it would be better if both had more independent inline sourcing: List of The Thundermans characters has at least one right now; List of Henry Danger characters doesn't have any inline sourcing. If you can get both of those up to, say, 3 independent inline sources, I think then they'd both pretty clearly be Start-class. (You may be stuck relying on "Teen 'zines" to get there, though...) --IJBall (contribstalk) 03:00, 3 May 2017 (UTC)

"Vandalism" Reasoning[edit]

My apologies for the incomplete description of the edit I posted. What occurred was that I hit enter too soon, and was unable to finish the summary of the edits I had made. I have given a more complete reasoning now in the talk page, but please keep in mind that I was not trying in any way to vandalize nor experiment on the page. If there is a way for me to edit the summary, I would certainly like to hear about it. Tapper930 (talk) 06:50, 3 May 2017 (UTC)

A disruptive editing warning, which is different from vandalism, likely would have been more appropriate. And no, edit summaries cannot be edited. Regardless, please discuss the matter on the talk page instead of just arbitrarily removing valid content. Amaury (talk | contribs) 06:56, 3 May 2017 (UTC)


GMW is officially, OFFICIALLY dead. --IJBall (contribstalk) 21:46, 3 May 2017 (UTC)

@IJBall: They must have exhausted everything because I would be one to keep trying no matter what. Netflix made a huge mistake. Amaury (talk | contribs) 22:59, 3 May 2017 (UTC)
I actually think The Squiggle Channel! Freeform is the one that made the mistake, but I get your point... --IJBall (contribstalk) 23:15, 3 May 2017 (UTC)

"Sockpuppet" reversion[edit]

Hi, I saw that you reverted my edit with the comment "Revert sockpuppet". Could you explain more about your decision? If the edit is inappropriate then feel free to improve it... but the reason you give doesn't seem to justify it. Ed Avis (talk)

OK, I see that you then reapplied the edit... thanks Ed Avis (talk)
@Ed Avis: For reference, Caedite eos was the sockpuppet, not you, hence why I went back a reapplied your edit. Cheers! Amaury (talk | contribs) 13:42, 4 May 2017 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for May 4[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Beyond (2017 TV series), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Sam Hill (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Nightscream's edit at Peyton List (actress, born 1998)[edit]

With their edit here, they apparently didn't read the documentation over at Template:Reflist, which specifically states that notation (where they use a specific number of columns) is a deprecated feature, and that something like "30em" is preferred. MPFitz1968 (talk) 07:21, 8 May 2017 (UTC)

It's been like that for about 2 years – I'm not sure how anyone could have missed that change. --IJBall (contribstalk) 12:29, 8 May 2017 (UTC)

Andi Mack[edit]

So far I've only seen the first 3 episodes of this... But isn't the point that Jonah Beck is not a classmate of Andi's, and is in fact in a different grade?! Or was that only true of Amber?... If the former is correct, that needs to be changed in the 'Plot' section... --IJBall (contribstalk) 15:53, 13 May 2017 (UTC)

@IJBall: Unfortunately, I haven't paid too much attention there. I just watch it, haha! MPFitz1968, can you confirm? Amaury (talk | contribs) 16:48, 13 May 2017 (UTC)
@IJBall: I recall Amber is in high school, so a different school than Andi. I'm pretty sure Jonah goes to the same school as Andi, but I don't know if he and Andi are in the same grade or have any classes in common. Probably better to remove "classmate" from the Plot to be on the safe side. MPFitz1968 (talk) 17:01, 13 May 2017 (UTC)

A lesson for us all...[edit]

A lesson for us all: the next time a random IP insists that a show has been "cancelled", just remember this: [1] [2] ... --IJBall (contribstalk) 17:46, 13 May 2017 (UTC)

@IJBall: Take lessons, Disney Channel. *cough* Girl Meets World *cough* Amaury (talk | contribs) 18:00, 13 May 2017 (UTC)


He seems to be doing whatever he can to avoid use of "children". Good to see you caught that at List of Bunk'd episodes/ --AussieLegend () 08:56, 16 May 2017 (UTC)

Looks like a new Draft is needed...[edit]

Looks like we need to start a draft for Knight SquadDraft:Knight Squad. (Knight Squad is currently a redirect, but that will be easy to take care of when the time is right...) I will have some time to get to that tonight, but feel free to start it first if you get to it before me... --IJBall (contribstalk) 22:35, 16 May 2017 (UTC)

OK, I've already started it. If you stumble across any other sourcing for this, let me know... Note that, as per WP:TVSHOW, an article for Knight Squad should not be created until Nickelodeon has actually announced a premiere date (or at least a premiere timeframe) for this series. I'm going to go ahead and watchlist Knight Squad to make sure aggressive IP's don't jump the gun on this. --IJBall (contribstalk) 23:44, 16 May 2017 (UTC)
@IJBall: Watching both. Amaury (talk | contribs) 23:50, 16 May 2017 (UTC)
OK, I got a clarification at WT:TV – see this. Based on that discussion, an article for Knight Squad shouldn't exist until this series goes into production and starts filming episodes, this fall. (I'm willing to bet that some IP editors will try to jump the gun before then, so we should definitely keep an eye on that redirect...). (Also, there was a discussion about what should ultimately happen to that redirect: here.) --IJBall (contribstalk) 03:19, 17 May 2017 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Looks like Nick is working on another unscripted series too: [3]. --IJBall (contribstalk) 16:55, 17 May 2017 (UTC)

Maybe this is in error then[edit]

The Mech-X4 series article has the category "Category:Television series produced in Vancouver" set on it. Is that in error? Alaney2k (talk) 18:15, 18 May 2017 (UTC)

Liv and Maddie[edit]

Need more eyes on Liv and Maddie – an IP (who may well be User:Kkjj logged out) is making large undiscussed changes to the article. FTR, it's on my "To Do" list to rework the 'Plot' section for this one, but I may not get to it until about a week from now... --IJBall (contribstalk) 22:43, 21 May 2017 (UTC)

@IJBall: Of course! Amaury (talk | contribs) 23:07, 21 May 2017 (UTC)

On Game Shakers...[edit]

FWIW, there is now more coverage of Cree Cicchino, so I think Draft:Cree Cicchino is getting closer to going "live". I still need to work on that one some more. But I think that one may be ready to move to mainspace soon, despite Cicchino only having pretty much the one role on Game Shakers to her name, as I think she's getting close to meeting WP:BASIC anyway. I'll either send that one through WP:AfC or check with Geraldo Perez before putting it in mainspace though. OTOH, Draft:Thomas Kuc, when it existed, was an over-written mess, and I'm doubting he's gotten enough coverage to justify an article... --IJBall (contribstalk) 15:45, 22 May 2017 (UTC)

I don't see WP:NACTOR being met yet for Cree Cicchino. Likely WP:TOOSOON. Geraldo Perez (talk) 16:47, 22 May 2017 (UTC)
@Geraldo Perez: I specifically acknowledged that above. But WP:NACTOR doesn't supercede WP:BASIC. IOW, being a main actor in a single TV series can get a subject to notability by itself, assuming there's substantial coverage of the subject. The question here is not whether Cicchino meets WP:NACTOR: she doesn't – the question is whether she's gotten enough coverage to pass WP:BASIC. --IJBall (contribstalk) 17:02, 22 May 2017 (UTC)
BASIC needs substantial coverage in multiple reliable secondary sources independent of each other to show notability. Interviews are pretty much primary sources and stuff more about the show is more in passing than substantial. Brittany Vanbibber source looks good. If you do put the article in mainspace you may end up spending a lot of effort defending it on an AfD. It might pass depending on who comments there. Geraldo Perez (talk) 17:11, 22 May 2017 (UTC)
That's why I'm also thinking about sending it through WP:AfC first – if it gets through AfC, it's usually good enough to survive at AfD... But it probably needs one more "coverage" article like Vanbibber's to have a shot, IMO. --IJBall (contribstalk) 17:53, 22 May 2017 (UTC)
Sounds like a good plan. Geraldo Perez (talk) 18:16, 22 May 2017 (UTC)

Want a "project"?...[edit]

You want a project for some time when you're really, really bored?! – The Secret Life of the American Teenager suite of articles look like they could definitely use some work!! (I despised this show, so I refuse to do it myself! Face-wink.svg ) --IJBall (contribstalk) 00:33, 24 May 2017 (UTC)
