hey man sorry to message you on an unrelated wiki but i just noticed i was blocked on the scrubs wiki, and i was wondering why it happened? if i did something i shouldn't of, it was completely unintentional and i apologize, and i would really appreciate the block being lifted. i enjoy helping out over there and i wasn't given a reason for the blocking. and it says that it is infinite, which completely baffles me.
hey man. i wrote the list of crimes and i was wondering if maybe you could block the page from any edits unless they come from me? it's kinda my baby haha it took me a bunch of months to make it, and once the new season comes out, i'd kinda like to be the one to make all the new additions. And also to protect it from vandalism haha
if not, that's cool but thanks for your time all the same.
Hi, so there is an episode of this show called Underage Drinking: A National Concern and I heard that Jaimie Alexander is in it and I watched the episode of this show for the first time and she looked beautiful in a red dress, also she was 18 on the show but in real life at that time she was 21 and the episode also came out when i was 3 yrs old, man I wish i had a time machine and saw the making of this episode.
As we move forward we plan to have wiki videos in many communities, with It's always sunny in Philadelphia wiki being a candidate for videos. If you are interested in which video types we might use you can find some great examples in this blog post. If we start producing videos we may reach out to you, other admins, and users to be involved in writing video scripts or being part of the production process.
Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks! Springteufel (talk) 13:50, May 23, 2017 (UTC)
The videos will be created by fandom staff (by our video team and experts from the community team) and we may also use high quality publisher or third party videos, too. You find more information about the different types of videos and how they are created here in this blog post. We are also experimenting on several ways to include users from communities in the script and video creation.
I think NOW we're good. I've been marked the most popular ones, also from this tab you can go to the full episode list (either you can go to the each season page where we're already have a very convenient and pretty descriptive eps-navigation).
I'd like for the wiki to remain "in universe" versus "real world"... so that for example, we wouldn't start off episode pages with a blurb like this: ""Charlie Has Cancer" is the fourth episode of the first season of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia." The thinking here is that the sentence takes the reader out of the Sunny universe, and highlights that the world is a fictional one. We already cover that in the episode box that appears on each page?
In a similar vein, maybe we could move lines like this into a new character infobox? "Dennis is portrayed by Glenn Howerton."
I tend to disagree with this. That information is very helpful for search results, and Google bots usually skip over infoboxes more frequently than they do written out sentences.
Also, the people who will be coming across our site will not be expecting a 100% in-universe resource. Some topics work well with in-universe approaches (science fiction, for example) but Sunny is just a sitcom - no need to take it or the wiki too seriously. Plus, some real-world information can be even more interesting than in-universe. (After I wrote the Charlie Day article and included the fact that he's married to Mary Elizabeth Ellis, reddit picked it up for an TIL which got us 60k pageviews in one day.)
The rest of the articles - episode synopsis, character bios, etc. should be mostly in-universe, but I strongly believe that we should leave "Trivia" sections and the intro sentences.
Didn't mean to suggest that we would cut out Trivia sections, or actor pages. I was focusing on character and episode pages, per my examples.
Was intrigued by your reference to Google bots. Does this sentence helps with Google results? "Charlie Has Cancer" is the fourth episode of the first season of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia." Personally, I would prefer to leave that info in the infobox, because it pulls the reader right out of the world of Sunny and reminds them that none of this is real. Would love to hear your thoughts on the opening sentence.
Lets try this conversation another way: I have been the last person to majorly edit "The D.E.N.N.I.S. System". What do you not like about it? Like about it? Think we could tweak a bit?
Also, let me clarify my viewpoint on in-universe vs. out-of-universe: I want to help this wiki's community create articles that are entertaining and informative to other Sunny in Philadelphia fans. I don't think having every bit of every article be "in-universe" is the best way to accomplish that goal.
In general, I've thought your episode edits have been great. The recap addition was fantastic, thanks for that! The Gallery addition was another nice touch. The videos section will be great; hopefully Hulu keeps those up.
In terms of other changes, I noticed the Title section was taken out, the Notes section was renamed as Trivia, and the Continuity section taken out. Those have been useful sections for me on other wikis...
When I started editing, almost every single episode article was simply an infobox and a bunch of empty h2s. I consolidated "Notes", "Continuity" and "Title" into "Trivia" because I would rather have one empty section than three right next to each other. Plus, I think they can all be mentioned under Trivia.
I'm not certain what "Title" even meant.
I'm not against having those sections on the episode articles. I'm against having empty sections.
