I've noticed that a number of pages (usually newer episodes) have reception sections. I think for now we should discourage them (although ratings could still be noted). The sections I have seen have had no sources, so it would be no problem for some random IP to add their opinion. And, this site is meant more for in-universe stuff. Leave things like production info and reception to wikipedia, let's focus on the episode content.Read more >
I've noticed a bit of a problem here with ages: Once their added, there's nothing compelling anyone to update them. So, the age for an actor could easily get out of date.
So, I created (read: copied from Wikipedia) some templates to help.and , and I also added two new fields to the guest star templates: "Birth" and "Death", which will eventually replace the age field.
Here's how they work:gets The death info goes first, followed by birth info.
So, now the fun part: Putting them into use.Read more >
I've noticed that there is a lot of inconsistancy between American and British English. I've seen quite a few pages that use British spellings or terms. This isn't surprising, since some of our most prolific contributors are from the land of Monty Python. Since The Simpsons is an American show, we should try to stick with American English, and try to make things consistant throughout the site.
I understand that it's not easy - I'm Canadian, so it took me a while to remember to spell words like colour as color and defence as defense (and I do still forget occasionally). But, if you start watching for those things, it becomes easier.
I'm not saying anyone should comb through the site and correct things - just keep it in mind, because it will h…Read more >
I've noticed that many articles here are missing voice actor information, or, worse yet, have incorrect information. I've created a template for such pages: . If you create a character page and are unsure who voiced the character, just add this template, and someone else can do it.Read more >
An IP just added this: Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire transcript
And I'm not sure what to do with it. Some other wikis, such as Lostpedia, do include transcripts. But, apparantly the IP just stole it from a different site. I'm not a big fan of stealing others' work (but then again, if we do eventually include transcripts, how are we to make them different?)
So, what do the users here think? If we do switch to full episode transcripts, then that would render the quotes pages obsolete.Read more >
