Carmen Sandiego's Great Chase Through Time and Where in North Dakota Is Carmen Sandiego?‎[edit]

Good morning @WikiPediaAid: ! I saw that you recently have been greatly improving the Disney franchise articles I created, and also a Carmen Sandiego game I have been heavily involved with now for a number of years.

I was wondering if you would perhaps care to give a more thorough copyedit to both Great Chase, and also another article on an obscure yet fascinating CDS game about North Dakota?

I think you would have a blast reading the latter, and I would greatly appreciate the second pair of eyes.

Lilo and Stitch Experiments[edit]

I noticed the List of Experiments from Lilo and Stitch article was unfortunately deleted. I wish I had found out about the discussion while it was happening, then I would have backed you up in keeping it.

If you want to manage an Experiment list, maybe you could try the list on Disney Wikia? Here's an archive of the Wikipedia page that you can use for reference: http://web.archive.org/web/20161015223806/https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_experiments_from_Lilo_%26_Stitch.

Plasma Phantom mentioned that the Lilo and Stitch Wikia had an awful experiment list and that the admin won't listen to reason. The Disney Wiki however is pretty reasonable. 2605:E000:7D0D:CF00:7011:858E:3FB7:32E3 (talk) 05:34, 14 December 2016 (UTC)

Yes, it is tragic that the list of experiments article was deleted. Also, I can attest to Plasma Phantom's comments about the admin on Lilo & Stitch Wiki as I've dealt with him before. I tried to cooperate with the guy, but he flip-flopped on how he wanted it to be run, especially since we were also dealing with another user who ran a different Lilo & Stitch-focused Wikia that I initially tried to give some support. I'm not going to give the whole story of the ordeal, but I knew it was hopeless when those two had issues over a header image that someone made for the Wikia. The guy who made it (or possibly someone else, I don't remember) was also going to clean up the experiments' images to make them look better, probably either to get rid of JPEG artifacts or make some SVG traces of their official art. I did want to back up Plasma Phantom on the Wikia problem during the discussion, but aside from personal issues in my life during October, I would have been shot down anyway because whatever happens on Wikia is not really relevant to Wikipedia.
As for The Disney Wiki, here's a sad twist. The admin running Lilo & Stitch Wiki is also an admin on Disney Wiki. He copy-pastes every edit made to Disney Wiki's Lilo & Stitch-related articles over to Lilo & Stitch Wiki and vice versa. He's even been called out on this by other Disney Wiki admins, yet, he still has an admin spot on there. Also, if I were to take out the definitely non-canonical information about the unseen experiments (and some of the officially-seen ones as well) over there, he would most likely notice the changes, revert my edits, and use his admin privileges to ban me from there. So as much as I want to do so, I won't unless he learns that keeping all this made-up fanon material needs to be removed or he gets his admin status revoked. I probably should talk to the higher-ups running the Wikia about him, but I don't want to spend the time doing so right now when I got other things on my mind.
On the plus side, someone on TV Tropes actually ported over the old Wikipedia list over to that wiki and it is pretty well maintained. They've been doing a decent job keeping fanon stuff off of there, so only the canon stays and the quality is relatively high. (I should mention that they are allowed to do this, since the wiki uses the same Creative Commons license as Wikipedia.)--–WPA (talk) 09:15, 14 December 2016 (UTC)

Episode order[edit]

The production order of Lilo and Stitch is the actual order. While both the airdate and production orders have discrepancies, production is very clearly the intended order. "Poxy" is the first time Gantu caught an experiment, but it was aired after several episodes where he caught experiments. "Nosy" references "Hunkahunka" but got aired first. Hell, "Link" got aired after the series ended when it clearly is before the finale. The list goes on and on. The DVD for Stitch! The Movie came with an "Experiment Tracker" poster with check-marks next to each experiment saying to mark each experiment you see while watching the series. The experiments were ordered based on when they debuted in production order. 2605:E000:7D0D:CF00:9C89:19D:12A5:2C4 (talk) 06:41, 15 December 2016 (UTC)

Just because that may have possibly been the production order for Lilo & Stitch: The Series (which mind you has a citation needed on the header for the column, so we don't know that for certain unless there is a reliable source), does not mean that it is the way the episodes should be ordered. Not to mention, the "Experiment Tracker" means nothing to Wikipedia; it's just something that Disney printed to help promote The Series.
On episode list articles on Wikipedia, episode lists must be ordered based on their airing order in their country of origin, not the production code order or the perceived order of events in-universe. In fact, it's actually against the Manual of Style on writing about fiction to write in a primarily in-universe perspective. In other words, just because there are plot holes and discrepancies between episodes, doesn't mean that it's OK to rearrange the episode order to "fix" them.
Take for example Lost. In the section for the Missing Pieces "mobisodes", the episodes have their production numbers listed and they are clearly out of order. However, they are still arranged based on their original air dates, as it should be, and this should not change. Same goes with The Simpsons, even though they don't follow any real particular timeline like Lost does. Looking at season eight alone, the production codes are also not "in order". The eighth episode of the season (prod. num. 4F07) is followed by an episode with a lower production number (3F24), but they are still correctly ordered based on their original air dates (the former episode debuted December 29, 1997, and the latter debuted January 5, 1998).
I'm sorry if my edit offended you in any way, but the list has to abide by Wikipedia's policies regardless.--–WPA (talk) 07:41, 15 December 2016 (UTC)

Ok. Two things. First, I'm not referring to in-universe perspective, I am referring to official order. Many tv shows are aired out of the creators' intended order. Sometimes the creators rectify this when releasing their shows on DVD by listing them in the correct order. If this were about in-universe perspective, it wouldn't be going by production OR airdate order.

But regardless, if it has to be that way, fine. But, at the very least, please don't try to impose that on TV Tropes (assuming you're the troper). TV Tropes does not operate under the same rules as Wikipedia. 2605:E000:7D0D:CF00:9C89:19D:12A5:2C4 (talk) 08:04, 15 December 2016 (UTC)
