Move discussion on various outlines[edit]

Because of a bug in how article alerts notices mass nominations, I just wanted to note that there's a proposal to move draft outlines at Wikipedia:WikiProject Outlines/Drafts/Outline of animation and Wikipedia:WikiProject Outlines/Drafts/Outline of anime out of the Outlines projects to draftspace (such as at Draft:Outline of anime). The discussion is here. Comments are welcome. -- Ricky81682 (talk) 09:00, 22 June 2016 (UTC)

Notice to participants at this page about adminship[edit]

Many participants here create a lot of content, have to evaluate whether or not a subject is notable, decide if content complies with BLP policy, and much more. Well, these are just some of the skills considered at Wikipedia:Requests for adminship.

So, please consider taking a look at and watchlisting this page:

You could be very helpful in evaluating potential candidates, and even finding out if you would be a suitable RfA candidate.

Many thanks and best wishes,

Talk:Morph (animation)#What is the article about? A character? A film? A TV series?[edit]

Hi all, discussion at Talk:Morph (animation)#What is the article about? A character? A film? A TV series? for anyone who knows anything about Morph. I think the article suffers from a lack of focus. It's unclear if we're talking about a character, a film, a TV series, a series of shorts, or what. Thanks for any input you might have. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 09:00, 28 August 2016 (UTC)

2016 Community Wishlist Survey Proposal to Revive Popular Pages[edit]

Magic Wand Icon 229981 Color Flipped.svg

Greetings WikiProject Animation Members!

This is a one-time-only message to inform you about a technical proposal to revive your Popular Pages list in the 2016 Community Wishlist Survey that I think you may be interested in reviewing and perhaps even voting for:

If the above proposal gets in the Top 10 based on the votes, there is a high likelihood of this bot being restored so your project will again see monthly updates of popular pages.

Further, there are over 260 proposals in all to review and vote for, across many aspects of wikis.

Thank you for your consideration. Please note that voting for proposals continues through December 12, 2016.

Best regards, SteviethemanDelivered: 17:52, 7 December 2016 (UTC)

Cast images in the middle of prose[edit]

What's with tables of images of cast members? For example The Simpsons, Family Guy, SpongeBob SquarePants. This breaks up the prose and repeats information already in the prose. What's the encyclopedic value of a gallery of headshots of the voice actors? They interrupt the prose and should be removed. Bright☀ 19:25, 7 April 2017 (UTC)

  • Support I see no need for them. -- 1989 19:30, 7 April 2017 (UTC)
  • Since this discussion affects all TV series articles, not just those concerning animation, this discussion would be better held at WT:TV. In any case, I have notified the TV project. --AussieLegend () 02:18, 8 April 2017 (UTC)
  • Support - I also feel that they have no encyclopedic value and should be removed. Galleries of headshots won't enhance a reader's understanding of a television show. --SBSPfan (talk) 03:14, 9 April 2017 (UTC)

Softwares used by Next Animation Studio for TomoNews Animations ?[edit]

Hello, i would like to know which software is used to make the Tomonews animations. They reminds me of the Sims video games.

Do you know which software it is ?

Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by MatterScreech (talkcontribs) 17:39, 28 April 2017 (UTC)

Remove hatnote about film's game and soundtrack[edit]

Animation film article in wikipedia tend to have hatnote about it's game and soundtrack; live-action film doesn't have it. I have tried to remove it, but they argued that "some percentage of people might come here seeking the game". It false because I think just because the article have the same name, doesn't mean that it need a hatnote. Hddty. (talk) 11:31, 29 April 2017 (UTC)

Popular pages report[edit]

We – Community Tech – are happy to announce that the Popular pages bot is back up-and-running (after a one year hiatus)! You're receiving this message because your WikiProject or task force is signed up to receive the popular pages report. Every month, Community Tech bot will post at Wikipedia:WikiProject Animation/Popular pages with a list of the most-viewed pages over the previous month that are within the scope of WikiProject Animation.

We've made some enhancements to the original report. Here's what's new:

  • The pageview data includes both desktop and mobile data.
  • The report will include a link to the pageviews tool for each article, to dig deeper into any surprises or anomalies.
  • The report will include the total pageviews for the entire project (including redirects).

We're grateful to Mr.Z-man for his original Mr.Z-bot, and we wish his bot a happy robot retirement. Just as before, we hope the popular pages reports will aid you in understanding the reach of WikiProject Animation, and what articles may be deserving of more attention. If you have any questions or concerns please contact us at m:User talk:Community Tech bot.

Warm regards, the Community Tech Team 17:16, 17 May 2017 (UTC)
