Subtle changes by user[edit]

The user has made a lot of subtle changes to Muppets-related episodes. None of them are sourced, and a lot of them seem to just be dates being changed to other plausible-looking values. Could someone with good subject-matter expertise in The Muppets figure out if he's introducing subtle vandalism, or if he's making a large number of corrections? ApLundell (talk) 23:04, 25 March 2016 (UTC)

Is it possible that every article on kids' media this user looks at happens to have incorrect dates and they happen to know the correct dates? Yes, it is theoretically possible. It is, however, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much more likely that they are simply vandalizing articles, as described at WP:KIDSTVDATES. I have warned them and will be reverting the tiny portion of their edits that have not already been reverted. Why none of the other editors reverting them bothered to warn them is beyond me. - SummerPhDv2.0 21:53, 1 April 2016 (UTC)

Who Framed Roger Rabbit Vandal[edit]

I have noticed that my role as a Wikipedian has become that of a custodian, cleaning up after the vandalism of what is apparently a single anonymous user obsessed with Who Framed Roger Rabbit, who makes numerous subtle edits all over the Disney WikiProject nearly every day. My daily routine begins by looking at my watchlist to see what was vandalized overnight, undo the vandalism, review (and nearly always undo) all the other changes by the same anonymous IP address, and add all the newly vandalized pages to my tripwire list. Virtually every edit I've made over the past couple of. On this has been undoing the work of this single vandal, and nearly all the recent changes on the pages I edit are an endless string of vandalism and undos.

Is there anything we can do to stop, slow down, or at least discourage this vandal?

For those of you undoing anonymous vandalism in WikiProject Disney, I urge you to also review all the contributions of the vandal, as the M.O. of this particular vandal is to vandalize multiple Disney-related pages in a single session. Often a Wikipedian will undo one or two of the vandals edits, but will leave some of the other edits in place. If all of us remain vigilant and clean up all of the messes as soon as they happen, perhaps we can persuade this vandal to move on.

Which Disney Channel TV shows should be "High" importance to WP:DISNEY?[edit]

I realize that this is rather "inside baseball", but here goes... As of now, just the following two Disney Channel TV series are rated as high importance to the WP:DISNEY project:

I'd argue that this list is incomplete. Some possible suggestions for additions to the "high importance" list for WP:DISNEY would be:

(A good benchmark for this might be Disney Channel series that ran 4 or more seasons...) The only currently running series that might qualify are Liv and Maddie (about to run 4 seasons...) and Girl Meets World, but maybe we should wait until a show is over before assessing it as "high" importance to WP:DISNEY?... Pinging the only people I can think of who might be interested in this discussion: @Geraldo Perez, Amaury, Nyuszika7H, and MPFitz1968: --IJBall (contribstalk) 23:19, 15 August 2016 (UTC)

Given Wikipedia:WikiProject Disney/Assessment § Importance scale and the examples there, I can't see any of the TV series as obviously being more than mid-importance to the project. I don't think we can just say more than 3 seasons makes it a significant topic although that could go into an evaluation decision. I don't think there is a simple rule we can derive, it remains a judgement call likely backed up with how significant the coverage of a series is in reliable sources. Geraldo Perez (talk) 23:45, 15 August 2016 (UTC)
First, note: I actually added most of those examples to the Importance scale, so I wouldn't necessary consider them "definitive"!...
But I think there are other ways to assess "importance" of the TV shows. For example – Did it spawn followup "theatrical films"? (Yes: Hannah Montana, Lizzie McGuire.) Did it spawn separate "TV movies"? (Yes: Wizards of Waverly Place, The Suite Life.) Did it spawn a "spinoff" or "sequel" TV series? (Yes: Suite Life (again!), Jessie.)
Addendum: And one other factor: how important were the show's star(s) to Disney Corporate? – In the case of Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez and the Sprouse twins, at the time, I think we can say they were of pretty high importance to Disney... Of the current stars, I'd say Ross Lynch and Dove Cameron, and maybe Sabrina Carpenter, are (or recently were) of similar importance to Disney Corp...
When all of those are figured in, I think strong arguments can be made for rating at least Hannah Montana, Lizzie McGuire, Wizards of Waverly Place, The Suite Life and Jessie as "high" importance. The other 2–4 suggestions are probably more borderline. --IJBall (contribstalk) 23:56, 15 August 2016 (UTC)
Being the root of a franchise is likely a solid call for high-importance. It impacts more of Disney than just Disney Channel if there are significant other Disney projects spun off from a TV series. Likewise important enough to have a spin-off shows importance to Disney. I think for actors would need to show involvement in multiple Disney projects or lead in a high-importance Disney Channel show. Series actors that show up in multiple Disney series, movies, significant albums show that Disney values them. I think a valuation is a weighing of all that. A good argument show be available if challenged that it is more than just run-of-the-mill TV series or actors that Disney doesn't use much. I think for most articles where a serious consideration has been made by an evaluator this will be fairly non-contentious. Hannah Montana fits most of the requirement as an exemplar, I think. Of the ones you list the only one I'm iffy about is Jessie. Geraldo Perez (talk) 00:32, 16 August 2016 (UTC)
I agree that Jessie is borderline, but I'm basing the argument for "high" importance on, 1) it ran 4 seasons, 2) it lead to Bunk'd, and 3) Debby Ryan was of pretty big importance to Disney, spawning one DCOM (Radio Rebel) and a half (16 Wishes was apparently not an official "DCOM", but Disney Channel has rerun the film like it was one!). But, like you, I think Jessie (and also That's So Raven) is right on the knife's edge between "mid" and "high" importance to WP:DISNEY, so I am a little conflicted... Hopefully others will offer their opinions to help us out here. --IJBall (contribstalk) 00:39, 16 August 2016 (UTC)
Debby Ryan also starred on The Suite Life on Deck as a main character. One thing I noticed from many of the Disney Channel shows is that the lead starring cast stem from them starring, though not in the lead, but still a main character, or guest starring on other shows. Examples I can think of include Good Luck Charlie which stars Bridgit Mendler who previously guest starred on Wizards of Waverly Place, Mighty Med which stars Bradley Steven Perry and Jake Short who previously starred on Good Luck Charlie and A.N.T. Farm, respectively, and, of course, Lab Rats: Elite Force which we already know who it stars and where they stem from. Amaury (talk | contribs) 01:19, 16 August 2016 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Yeah, I pretty much agree with most things said above. I'm not entirely sure about Jessie either. This makes me wonder about Violetta though, which reached pretty much international popularity (not so much in the U.S. – it only aired on a Spanish TV channel, Azteca [in Spanish, obviously] and only the first season – later the first two seasons were released in English [both subtitled and dubbed] and Spanish on Netflix on July 10, 2015 and the third season on December 31, 2015). It's currently rated "Low-importance", which is definitely wrong, it should be at least "Mid" but I'd argue it might be even "High". nyuszika7h (talk) 10:11, 16 August 2016 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done – I've reassessed Violetta as "mid" importance to WP:DISNEY. While I generally think non-U.S. Disney Channel shows should be assessed as "low" importance to WP:DISNEY, there will be some exceptions, and Violetta seems to get enough interest/"heat" even at En Wiki to justify making an exception and rating it as "mid" importance. (I also reassessed Violetta as 'C-class' – while a couple of sections (e.g. the Production section) are inadequately sourced, overall the article is more than long enough and well-sourced enough to be well past 'Start'-class.) --IJBall (contribstalk) 15:23, 16 August 2016 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Back to the matter at hand: I think I will reassess the articles that have been generally agreed upon as "high" importance later today. I think I am going to include Jessie (but not That's So Raven or Austin & Ally), for the reasons I outlined above – but I also won't object if another editor kicks it back down to "mid" importance afterwards... Thanks to everyone who replied for their comments – I did help! --IJBall (contribstalk) 15:26, 16 August 2016 (UTC)

Possible Vandalism[edit]

Can someone take a look at Disney Villains and see if the past month (or more) of IP based changes are possibly vandalism and revert to wherever it was last good? Jerod Lycett (talk) 21:24, 18 September 2016 (UTC)
