I think I meant that for the artist their love for the Chipmunks maybe goes deeper than for other like me. To me the Chipmunks are my place of refuge when the world gets scary for me and I get overwhelmned. They help sooth me. Sorry i dont mean to whine
Maybe it does, maybe it doesn't. Though, as I noted on the thread, artists tend to create or develop their own styles based off the characters. Some may wish to replicate the characters exactly while others may want to put a twist into the art to make it their style (one way you can tell artists apart).
The characters are a comfort for other fans too. No worries though, I don't see having a discussion as whining.
Hello, This is EverythingCartoons and I wanted to let you know that yesterday I posted a message about a future movie and when I checked back on it, it shows 1 message but when I view theres nothing there except my question. What do I do about that?
Im new here by the way. Well just for the Munkapedia only.
Hey there. No one has posted on that message so the notification you received was most likely the welcome message. There's nothing to do about it if it wasn't as there wasn't another post to that message made, supported by the logs.
All right, I know that this is kind of a long message, but there is a question I have that requires a lot of explaining beforehand.
So, do you know how on character pages, users have the ability to post quote templates with notable lines from the corresponding character? Well, I was looking over a page recently, trying to figure out which quote to add, when I realized something. There are some quotes that don't make sense by themselves, if they are not part of the entire exchange or conversation that they are included within. I was wondering if I could create some "Notable Quotes and Exchanges" pages involving the related topic for the movies, similar to what IMDb does:
Now, I don't plan on copying and pasting from IMDb, because for one thing, that would be copyright infringement, and for another, quite a few of these exchanges shown here aren't even correct. You were right: IMDb is not a reliable source.
I plan to create the notable lines and exchanges pages from the movies by typing them up myself, in whatever format you see proper.
Hey there. Quotes on individual character pages are supposed to make sense by themselves, otherwise they aren't notable and shouldn't be listed anyways. These quotes are meant to be noteworthy, in terms of the character's personality/actions, and there shouldn't be more than a handful from each film per character (one or two from each episode).
Exchanges go beyond that towards transcripts, which aren't allowed on the wiki for copyright reasons. Pages for exchanges would basically be transcript pages, which aren't needed here. We have to keep in mind that this is a wiki with a license providing free information (with attribution) thus copyrighted content must be used in a way to be beneficial to someone looking for information while also respecting the copyright owners.
Are you saying that I shouldn't create the articles unless I keep the exchanges short, and make sure that everything is credited?
(Edit: I know this next statment is completely off-topic, but I tried to post some userboxes on my profile. However, when I pasted the code, the actual code itself appeared instead of the real userboxes, so I also need some assistance with that. But I'm digressing here.)
I noticed that you made alterations to the edits that I have made because there were blatant mistakes with some of my edits. I was wondering if you could explain to me what I'm doing wrong so that I don't make these same mistakes in future edits.
So, I noticed that you said I was using the wrong link for Dave's quotes, and I was confused, because I thought I had formatted everything correctly (italicizing, etc.). You also said that I gave Ian's quotes "too many ellipses," and I didn't understand what that meant. I haven't fully comprehended what I'm doing wrong in my edits, so if you would answer my questions, that'd be awesome.
Given the way the wiki uses ellipses (as a placeholder for missing dialogue/lyrics), they generally should be avoided as hesitations (they aren't used at the end of a sentence anyways). Most of this relates to song lyrics, but in order to be consistent across the wiki, their use is best to be restricted. It also reduces some confusion as they are traditionally used in quotations to show an omission of words from that quotation.
OK, thanks! That's really helpful; I'll remember that next time I edit. I wasn't aware that my links led to the wrong page, so I'm glad you pointed that out.
Another thing I forgot to mention in my first message was the fact that you removed a video I had posted on my profile page. I would like to know why the video was deleted. Did you think it had poor quality, or something? Was it a duplicate or a near-duplicate? Whatever the issue is, I would just like to understand why the video is no longer there.
I did post the reason when I deleted the video. Regardless, as stated in the wiki's Video Policy under the "Repitched Songs" section, these types of videos aren't allowed given that fan fiction is not allowed on the wiki. You can provide a link to the video on your profile page but shouldn't upload it to the wiki. Also, keep in mind that this is an AATC wiki. Off-topic (irrelevant) images should, ideally, not be uploaded to the wiki either. One or two is generally allowed, but these can be deleted at any time. Again, links are good options in this case too.
DEmersonJMFM you just don't understand Iko Iko is performed by The Dixie Cups check that on YouTube and you'll see what I am talking about. And James Crawford is just the writer who wrote this check that on the Wikipedia.
It's okay, though next time it would be more productive to talk more about an issue than to continue to revert edits. While that's a bit the fault of both of us, I thought my edit summary was clear enough to resolve the issue. Regardless, a new compromising edit seems like a better resolution over one artist or the other anyways.
BTW, I do check every edit controversy that occurs or ask other fans that have been in the fandom for a long time for their input. I don't take reversions lightly.
