  • Hi, me again. I am trying to removing articles from the redundant categories (something I've been working on my previous profile), and I'm currently cracking through Catergory:Robots. I've noticed that I can't seem to remove the first couple categories (including the Robots category on some pages like Mouser (2003 TV series), Turtlebot and Mother Mouser). I'm not quite sure if it's a technical glitch, but this is something that occurs on most of these pages on the wiki. I'm not really suggesting that you contact someone to have them possibly fix this, but do you know any ways to remove certain pages from categories?

  • Hi, I've noticed this, but there's these categories on various TMNT episode articles titled "themed episode" and with a certain character's name in front of it (example: Leo themed episode[1]), and I'm curious if that's an approved category on this wiki. I recall you asking the user Luigiman1999 about these categories a few months back, and I'm not sure those were improved. I have also noticed other users like Delilahmonclova and Pokemonlover1 make similar categories using other characters like April and Mayhem.

    I haven't removed these categories from the episode articles, because I'm not sure if they're approved by you guys or not.

    • Sigh:

      It's more of a "I don't have energy to deal with this". If we were to get a category like these officially, it'd probably be more of a "X focused episode" versus themed, because it's not a theme. But I also don't personally think we need to track this metric.

    • Understandable. I didn't mean to be a bother. If you want me to fix this, I'll do just that. But if you don't, that's fine too.

    • Yeah, you know what, go for it.

  • My recent finger injuries have made it clear that I can't always be around to type up comics transcripts for Turtlepedia. I already anticipated the possibility that other editors can be trained in the task (perhaps in a much more limited fashion), which led me to write Template:qline/Usage. But perhaps it's about time a manual of style for transcripts be laid out, at least as a draft or a discussion of ideas. I know that it would effectively be describing the common structure of the transcript pages that already exist, but I also figure that it could help in gathering suggestions and reaching consensus on how the style can be improved upon. It isn't exclusively my project after all—it's for the betterment of Turtlepedia.

    Compared to qline's usage page, I think the manual of style for transcript pages should be relatively straightforward. Transcript templates at top (which already embed their own categories), and a __NOTOC__ directive, and individual sections for each page or two-page spread. (This describes comics, but conceivably the concept can be broadened for television and film transcripts as well if that ever becomes a thing.) Each section has a Template:quotes bubble filled with one or more Template:qline. In terms of what to transcribe, I (mostly) try to limit the transcript to text that appears, rather than also describing every last character action. I go from page to page, transcribing title text, dialogue text, narration text, sound effect text, background scenery text, everything that can be read, including foreign text if it can be adequately electronically duplicated. I've found myself usually only describing scene actions in text-free montages (like in Bebop & Rocksteady Hit the Road #2 and the Donatello macro-series issue), and even then I try to keep the descriptions concise to clarify which scene is being shown and in what order.

    And the purpose of transcripts might need to be understood and reinforced. They are not a replacement for comics or TV episodes, but are text references, most useful to people who have already read/seen the material. For the curious, they can also be fodder for recreational spoiler reading. And if transcripts become useful (as many already have) in helping editors improve articles in lieu of having all their comic books close at hand, then they will have more than served their purpose and enhanced the wiki.

    But all these are just my thoughts on the matter. While I think it would be a good idea, I don't necessarily believe there is a great urgency at this time to set up such a manual of style. It just doesn't hurt to consider for future wiki planning.

    • Sounds like a more fun experience at least than my last hand injury.

      That sounds like a potentially good idea and not even just in the transcripts.

    • Well, my fingers are slowly becoming more usable again. I'm just trying to avoid sliding the callused skin against the surface of the keys. It hurts less to simply press them and release them instead.

      And true, but I'd still be very reluctant to rename Mutagen Maintenance back to "Mutagen Maitenance" just because its title was printed that way, though I would still call it "Mutagen Maitenance" in the transcript where it occurs.

  • I'm an admin from Scoobypedia and most of the time, new recruits don't really read our policy and follow the rules. I need advice on how this wiki helps new recruits to understand the rules.

  • "Caleb Geollner" is misspelt, but I don't have the necessary permissions to rename it to Caleb Goellner.

  • Hi. I was wondering what you think of the Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles TV series so far.

  • Since sometimes a character has no gender or their gender may be ambiguous, perhaps it's better to rename the category Category:Characters missing gender to Category:Characters with unspecified gender? It can flexibly imply either that the gender is unspecified in the story, or unspecified in the article.

    • Here's something weird I've never noticed before today: all words on categories are auto-capitalized on mobile in the article. It doesn't reflect that on the category itself, though.

    • That is...strange. It could be a mobile CSS style.

  • I came here to start all over with us. I hope I won't mention any "Wingnut" references, since you naturally didn't understood and not familiar with me as The Spliced Savage. I didn't bothered to do anything such as this sooner, since I didn't wanted to disturb your privacy after I left two messages that couldn't make sense for you. If I did anything wrong to you on those last two messages, sorry.

    I used to edit stuff on TMNTPedia before, but a lot of situations back then made things not so fortunate. I used to talk to Trigger009 when I made this account, but I haven't got a message from him recently. Unless you disagree with this (no offense), I think it's time I told you something I should've told you a long time ago.

  • For the second time, I've reverted someone's edit that added Category:Non-Mutant Anthropomorphs to Category:Triceratons, because the IDW Triceratons are mutants. Perhaps we should consider splitting Category:Triceratons into different categories by continuity? Or, at least, adding Category:Non-Mutant Anthropomorphs or Category:Mutants to individual Triceraton articles where appropriate? Though at this point, splitting up the Triceraton category seems like the more sensible option.
