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.
Hello and welcome to the wiki. Thanks for asking before creating articles about minor things. Yes, other wikis create articles about very minor things (one shot items and even un-named characters), but this wiki isn't one of them. Every article needs to be notable enough to clearly stand by itself. The 8K TV is an example that clearly can't stand alone well as a separate article (there's very little information about it and likely never will be more about it).
An editor in the past brought up the idea of an article about Dave's car. In this case such an article could work, dependent on how it's written, considering all the different cars Dave has owned. It would likely take on a formatting similar to the Seville House page.
I hope this information helps and please feel free to ask questions if you have them.
Well... So i think that kinda articles would be better for wiki about only one cartoon in chipmunks universe. Maybe i try create wiki about only ALVIN!!! universe, cause i watch only this cartoon, so i can't help you out here for some reasons. Anyway thanks for answer.
Every wiki is different though creating another Chipmunks wiki, even more so for this reason, is for the most part pointless and counterproductive to the fandom. The fan base is very diverse and this wiki very appropriately covers it all, regardless of fans that only watch/like one generation over the others, and connects all fans together. This wiki contains many pages that are generation-specific so an argument for another wiki implying this wiki can't contain this type of information because it's more than one universe is unfounded. Your proposed pages are just about minor topics that'll generate little useful information for readers, regardless of generation/universe.
If you do decide to create your own wiki despite everything above, keep in mind that you would not be able to copy any content from this wiki without proper attribution. Details of this can be found in the wiki's copyright licensing details.
DEmersonJMFM, I know that Simon & Jeanette are your absolute favorite Chipmunk/Chipette couple by far, and I'm curious to know: which chipmunk couple is your second favorite? Out of Theodore & Eleanor or Alvin & Brittany, which of those two is your second-favorite couple?
(In case you were wondering, here are my favorites):
Hey there. Unfortunately I have to tell you I won't be making you an Admin, for multiple reasons. The most applicable reason first is that there isn't a need for another one at the moment. If there was, we would follow the wiki's polices in choosing one and a new user with no experience/knowledge of this wiki would not be a candidate for such a position. Additionally, the majority of large and established wikis greatly frown upon any user, especially a new user, asking to be an Admin. Based on your profile, it would lead me to believe you just want to be an Admin on yet another wiki. Being an Admin is serious work, not just a label to add to your profile. Any serious wiki isn't going to hand out Admin privileges to everyone who asks.
If you are serious about being an Admin here, you need to understand you'll need to not only be here a long time making many constructive edits but also learn about the wiki, how it operates, how it's pages are structured, etc. Even so, you may not be given the role. Instead of focusing on the role, focus on helping the wiki. For the majority of activity on a wiki you don't need to be an Admin. If you have questions, feel free to ask.
The edit button appears for me so you either have some personal code that's removing/interfering with the button or there could just be a bug on your end. Add ?useusercss=0&useuserjs=0 to the end of the URL of a page and see if the problem is resolved. If not try adding &usesitecss=0&usesitejs=0 to that. If you can't see it still, try refreshing and purging the page (look online, if needed, to see how to do this for your browser - Chrome is Fn + F5). If that still doesn't work, send in a bug report.
Hi, DEmersonJMFM; I've had a question I've been wanting to ask you for a while but didn't get the opportunity to do so until now.
I know and understand that fan fiction is not permitted on this wiki. However, is it all right if I just attach the links to my fan fics on my message wall if I ever have reason to? In addition to being a FANDOM user, I also have an account on FanFiction, and I've been working on an Alvin and the Chipmunks fan fic that's been very successful so far. Like I said, I only plan to post the links on my message wall and nowhere else on the forum or wiki, but I felt as though I should check with you first and ask if it's okay.
Hi DEmersonJMFM; I'm Amanda with FANDOM's community development team! I wanted to see if you were interested in turning on Discussions.
In case you are unaware of the feature, Discussions was introduced last year to help communities engage with users and fans. It lives in its own space on the wiki and allows users to interact with other members of the community. It is also mobile friendly, and gives mobile users a chance to contribute and engage with the community, and possibly turn them into wiki editors as well. You can read more about Discussions here.
For more information on migrating forums to Discussions, you can check out this blog over on Community Central that explains everything in detail.
If you have some concerns, Discussions and Forums can exist side-by-side in case you do not want to migrate just yet. However, eventually all Forums will be migrated over to Discussions, so getting ahead of the curve is never a bad idea.
Let me know what you think, and if you want to proceed I can get the ball rolling.
This post is just to acknowledge I've read this. Our active editors here are gonna discuss this more before making a decision.
I've followed Discussions from nearly the beginning as I used to be very active on CC (I haven't really looked into it much lately). There's been many improvements to the feature as well as some new things the current Forum lacked. Personally, there are some big necessities that are missing from Discussions: no highlighting of discussions, lack of wikitext support (for one, having to display a URL to link is a bit pathetic to me - thinking of threads like this that would look stupid in that format), and no Topics replacement. We have a board for editing projects and that'll be a problem with no wikitext/styling support. I know Discussions isn't MediaWiki, but I really don't want button styling. It's too slow.
I know Discussions will become the new "norm" one day, but these issues are big ones and migration is the last thing on my mind.
We've decided to allow Discussions to be enabled, but we are not currently interested in Forum migration. The new Announcements feature solves the highlighting issue, but I'd still like to see more work done with Discussions to take into account our concerns regarding our Forum content.
