  • Our friend Luis 106 Lincoln is once again spamming the comments. I was late to see it (because I've been busy getting ready for school and other commitments to even notice), but they didn't respond kindly to you blocking them for a week. And they pulled the "I have cystic fibrosis" card yet again. Should we just ban them for failing to listen to us?

    Their comments are still being left on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2012 TV series) page.

    • I'mma give 'em a lecture but after that if you see it again you can give them the boot.

      Also what is up with every time I gotta put my foot down around here it's "rude"? It's not my fault they can't abide. It's just weird that that's the only term I see in response.

    • I don't think you're being rude if you put your foot down. And I'll certainly get them the boot if they continue.

  • Hey again!

    So I bring some great news on a new feature introduced at Fandom!

    Special:Analytics is a new statistics tracking tool for admins on all Fandom wikis.

    This feature includes some really insightful statistics that should allow you guys to inform some wiki decisions, such as:

    • Top viewed pages
    • # of page views (daily over the past 30 days)
    • Most visited files
    • Desktop vs mobile sessions
    • and more!

    So as I mentioned above, this feature is really great as it allows you to see what areas are doing very well and how you can capitalise on them. For example, the tool shows the wiki's current most popular page by some distance is Jennika. You could take a look at that article and see if there is any more content that can be added to it to really flesh it out and give readers more information on this character they're interested in. The more rich (but not irrelevant or repetitive) information you can have on an article, the better its search engine optimisation will be. That's just one way this tool is super useful! :)

    Hopefully you like this feature, it's been highly requested for some time and we would really appreciate your feedback on it. For more help with it, please feel free to ask me questions and also refer to these two super useful articles:

    Thanks!

  • This is something that has been on my mind for some time now.

    Similar to how Fast Forward and Back to the Sewer are treated as subseries of the 2003 TV series in their own right (with their own Char Appear data, etc.), I was thinking that After the Bomb and its associated supplement books should be treated as a subseries of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles & Other Strangeness. The reasons for this are:

    • Only some of the Palladium books take place in the contemporary 1980s. After the Bomb is a specific future postapocalyptic scenario written by Palladium. This includes the source books After the Bomb, Road Hogs, Mutants Down Under, Mutants of the Yucatan, and Mutants in Avalon. The scenarios are briefly referenced in the time travel context of Transdimensional Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
    • Importantly, when Palladium allowed their TMNT license to expire without renewing it, they discontinued materials like TMNT&OS itself (along with Transdimensional TMNT, etc.), but continued publishing the After the Bomb scenarios stripped of their already sparse direct relation to TMNT. So even though After the Bomb was originally conceived as a supplement for TMNT&OS, its later editions are not published or promoted as TMNT-related works.

    I find this fascinating as what is effectively an anti-crossover, where material originally conceived as part of TMNT continues to live on as a non-TMNT franchise. In any event, I think it would be fair to treat the After the Bomb scenarios as a subseries in its own right.

    • I gave it some thought to that too, but I don't think it's too much of an integral thing to make a decision on immediately, especially since, like, the only character who has any overlap is Raph, and that's just in a comic.

        Loading editor
    • I guess so. But I guess in my mind I've already started to think of TMNT&OS and AtB as separate creatures that didn't start out as separate creatures, like Mirage and Image.

  • Is there a place I can review the proper use of the tags by any chance?

      Loading editor
    • Honestly, everything as far as I was concerned was pretty straightforward, but it might be a bit of cognitive bias clouding my sight. I've made some adjustments to a couple of categories that you may find useful. Please do let me know if they need further clarification, and just ask if you have questions on any specific categories.

      On the Intimidator Suit article, just to be clear, didn't need an Unfinished tag because it was essentially, well I wouldn't say complete, but at least structured soundly enough to stand, and the data you noted would be useful would have actually taken less effort to add than it did to add the tag and notate it.

    • Perfect. I'll dig into that later to make sure I get on page better.

  • I know that in the main space these aren't allowed. Is my assumption that such things are okay in our blogs correct? (I have something I'd like to end up making a pseudo-entry as a blog post but I want to be sure it is okay to do that)

    • There's a specific wiki we have for fan materials that has gone pretty much abandoned. The only real stipulation outside of the regular rules is that it has to be a real work, not like something one just makes up for the shell of it.

      Turtlepedia Fanon

    • So, this would be information about the version of Leonardo (based on Leonardo (2012 TV series)) online. I had been figuring a blog post about it would be better than the Fanon site also but I guess it doesn't belong on either maybe?

        Loading editor
    • Would you be able to give me an example? I'm not sure I follow.

        Loading editor
    • I'm not sure how better to explain it than this: I'm going to be portraying a version of Leonardo on a MUSH and once I get approved I thought I'd make a blog post here so I can link on the blog post to the articles here I'm referencing. (for example, my version of Leonardo (2012 TV series) watched a show as a child about a fictional version of Galahad which also featured Bruce Lee as an actor)

  • The antagonist badge (as an example) is keyed off the antagonist category. As many antagonists aren't in that category but Antagonist (<Series>) categories this prevents you from getting the badge for them... can the badges be fixed to work with the current category setup?

  • I was recently shown that a categorization set up I wanted (Donnie's Inventions vs Donnie's Inventions <by series>) was excessive on pages then I found Bo. Can I remove the Weapons <by series> categories from that page and any similar I find?

    • Makes sense Gilgameshkun, thanks for the information (though the science degree holder I am has to say: humans aren't reptiles, amphibians or fish... *grin* )

    • As a question of cladistics, they are. As mammals, humans are also synapsid reptiles, tetrapod amphibians and lobe-finned fish, though it may be more accurate to classify them in Synapsida, Amniota, Tetrapoda and Sarcopterygii, which are clear clades. But Turtlepedia categories aren't given such hypertechnical names—they're organized in more familiar terms. Even Category:Lizards is generally a familiarly-named placeholder for Squamata, so it includes Category:Snakes as a subcategory, since all snakes are members of the Toxicofera branch of squamates.

  • Shouldn't they be called home video releases instead of home media releases? Video games are also considered home media, but the categories are only for releases to home video.

      Loading editor
    • I suspect that video games have their own category...

        Loading editor
    • Home media refers to media used for recording, copying, delivery, and playback of various types of entertainment and information in the home. It may refer to:

      • Home video
        *Magnetic tape
        *Phonograph record

    • What about DVD/BlueRay?

        Loading editor
    • DVD and Blu-Ray count, yes. That's what they're under right now, is home media.
