Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Robbie Daymond has been proposed for deletion because it appears to have no references. Under Wikipedia policy, this newly created biography of a living person will be deleted unless it has at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within seven days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one.

It's OK, you can delete it. SalmonCat (talk) 16:17, 22 May 2014 (UTC) P.S. Does your username come from "Robot Pirate Ninja President" from Fanboy and Chum Chum? I love that show! SalmonCat (talk) 16:17, 22 May 2014 (UTC)


Okay, who edited my Browne Boyz page? Kate? SalmonCat (talk) 21:04, 22 May 2014 (UTC)

May 2014[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to List of Nickelodeon cross-overs may have broken the syntax by modifying 1 "[]"s. If you have, don't worry: just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

List of unpaired brackets remaining on the page:

Did not notice that. I will fix it. SalmonCat (talk) 22:47, 23 May 2014 (UTC)

Edit summaries[edit]

Hi, just a heads-up, though your attempts to lighten up Wikipedia through humor are appreciated, edit summaries are intended to be used to summarize the edits you are making to an article, not for random commentary, as I've noticed you've done here, here, and here for example. Regards, Cyphoidbomb (talk) 02:41, 24 May 2014 (UTC)

@Cyphoidbomb: It will be better if you link to the appropriate rule. OccultZone (Talk) 02:55, 24 May 2014 (UTC)
WP:EDITSUMMARY should adequately explain the community's expectations on the subject. @OccultZone:, if you have a more specific rule in mind, please let us know. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 04:17, 24 May 2014 (UTC)
@Cyphoidbomb: No offense to you, you did a tremendous job by notifying the user about the summaries. Page is on my watchlist as I had created this page, I wanted to welcome the user. I was just telling you to let user know about the page from where they can read more. OccultZone (Talk) 04:24, 24 May 2014 (UTC)

Encyclopedic language[edit]

Hi SalmonCat, I think generally you're doing a decent job, but I have two more minor notes for you. Face-smile.svg TV synopses (and pretty much everything else here) need to be written in proper encyclopedic tone. We need to make sure the language is clear and professional, describes the episode, and doesn't contain flowery statements or promotional affectations. Sometimes when we read episode summaries on the official site, we'll see a different style of cutesy language that is intended to get people to watch their show, like:

"After finding a spell to reverse time, our two wackadoodle heroes use the spell for every problem under the sun! Will the two learn to stop abusing temporal anomalies?"

This isn't how we'd present the information at Wikipedia, because it's inappropriate to use exclamations and rhetorical questions, and we need to present the subject with real-world context (i.e. without using "in-universe" language and concepts.) A better version of this sentence might be:

"Tim and Mike find a spell to reverse time, but overuse the spell on every minor problem they encounter. After their carelessness winds up destroying the city, the duo fixes the mess they've made, and ultimately learn how to use time spells responsibly."

The other note is that when we write about prose, we use persistent present-tense, which means that as a summary evolves, we're learning about what's happening right now. "The team goes here, but then this happens, so they do this, and that results in this." In your edit here, I changed "and Penny gladly made them!" to "and Penny gladly makes them", which is closer to persistent present-tense. There's a lot of stuff to remember, I know. Though it's a big document, you might benefit from reading Writing Better Articles, and if you're going to write about television articles, you might also consider taking a look at the Manual of Style for Television. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. Good luck! Cyphoidbomb (talk) 01:02, 26 May 2014 (UTC)

A brownie for you![edit]

Brownie transparent.png Here's a brownie to welcome you to Wikipedia.

Albeit a little rough around the edges, I appreciate your enthusiasm. Vjmlhds (talk) 02:29, 5 June 2014 (UTC)

Brownies are so delicious! I eat them in real life all the time! Thanks a whole lot! --SalmonCat (talk) 23:59, 6 June 2014 (UTC)

I'm so sorry![edit]

I'm really sorry!!! I didn't mean to totally copy the format of your user page. You'll still be my best bap forever! -User: RamBamBoo


Please don't use Wikipedia to store your fiction, even if it's just in your userspace. Thank you. DS (talk) 03:20, 21 June 2014 (UTC)

Oh. I spent soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much time on that Browne Boyz page! Now all the info on it is GONE!! :( SalmonCat (talk) 10:51, 21 June 2014 (UTC)
If you add your e-mail address to your preferences, I can arrange to have the content sent to you, if you really want. You could also download a free copy of our MediaWiki software, to run on your own computer. DS (talk) 12:01, 21 June 2014 (UTC)

Writers and Storyboarders[edit]

Should we add Written By and Storyboards By on the Sheriff Callie's Wild West page in the Episodes section? I see Written By and Storyboards By in the End Credits of episodes. So should we add them to the Sheriff Callie's Wild West page? - EvilLair (talk) 01:58, 27 July 2014 (UTC)

Totally! If it's in the credits, then why not?! SalmonCat (talk) 00:00, 28 July 2014 (UTC)


Hi Salmon, to quickly answer your question from this edit summary, Q1, Q2, Q3, Q4 represent divisions of the year into quarters. Q1=Jan–Mar, Q2=Apr–Jun, etc. Since we do not use seasons, quarters are sometimes used as alternatives. Aside from that I think removing the unsourced content was a good idea. Regards.

Disambiguation link notification for October 3[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Clan (TV channel), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page The Next Step (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.
