Welcome to my Wall!
Before leaving me a message:
  • PLEASE look through the FAQs on my profile page. You'll be doing me a HUGE favor by saving me the time in answering the same questions over and over again.
    • Here's one I'm still getting asked a lot:
Can I be an admin/rollback/chatmod/other staff on this wiki?
What are the requirements for being admin/staff?
See this thread and this thread.
  • A bit silly to list this, but sadly, I must: Do not ask me about things that I couldn't possibly know. Again, from my FAQ: I do not work for DreamWorks, nor am I an expert in all topics related to movies, or television, or animation, etc. So please refrain from asking me things like when something will be released, or why something is taking so long to release. I'll typically answer these with, "I don't know, sorry," because I really don't know what else to say.
  • Please do your research before asking me. I get a lot of questions that require me to do something that you could easily do yourself - e.g. asking me for the translation and meaning of a piece of foreign text, or asking me for updates on a particular piece of media, etc. Please be polite and do the research yourself first before asking me about it.
  • Please do not ask me to look at/visit/read/view/etc. something of yours. I'm quite a busy person and unfortunately do not have the time to look at everyone's stuff.

  • I want to do a transcript for this, but I don't know how to make the clickable link and the transcript page outline.

    • Added link. Simple as creating a [[wiki link]] to the article, then adding "/Transcript" after it.

    • Great work on it! Thanks for taking initiative and putting in the time and effort to do that. :)

      I noticed there's still an issue with word doc text not copying over to wiki text correctly (like you described to me earlier) - there's a lot of extra break-lines and spacing in it. Might take a while to fix, so just for future reference, I put the {{Improve}} template at the top of the page. No rush to get it fixed straightaway; as is, it looks pretty good.

    • When you mention "extra break-lines and spacing", could it also be something related to my Microsoft Word? On my Paragraph tab, my "After-spacing" is 8 pt and my "Line spacing" is Multiple at 1.08. You want me to set the "After-spacing" to 0 pt and the "Line spacing" to Single/Double?

    • Yeah, just try and make it as close to Word's "default-form" as possible. I just tried out posting some text into Word and then pasted onto a wiki page, and it's not doing any weird formatting for me. Maybe it's the version of Word you use? I use the 2002 version, which very likely works differently than the later versions.

      Anyway, try to do some test edits if you need to. You can use the wiki's sandbox if you'd like.

      EDIT: Just as an extra note - if things don't work out and you can't find out what's happening with the formatting, a good fallback would be to just work on text on a wiki page (without saving it, obviously), and then when you're done copy-paste the whole page onto a word processor. That way it saves the formatting. I did this a few times years ago when I worked on other pages for the wiki, but mostly out of preference of just editing on the wiki itself, and then saving my progress on a separate file.

  • Hi! i'm a new user here! From the Community page, I saw that one of the outstanding tasks would be to create quote sub-pages for characters with said section. I have created the page Oogway/Quotes and using other pages as a model, I have completed one section. Could you please check if everything is alright? Is there anything that I should take note of?

    • There are only estimates of how old he is, some of which are documented here. A lot of fans think he's at least 50 or 60 years old, which is my best guess as well.

  • It's... seems true actually! Why would they put "Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness" on their page? They are basically (somewhat) conforming it in-universe. With some few flaws.

      They/Their is Dreamworks Animation. Since this is the cartoon side. Look at Crane. It says, "See more of Crane in:

    • Okay, I thought so. How can you read or navigate the site, though? Looks broken on my end...

      But anyway, the TV show is a licensed work under their franchise, so of course they'd link stuff to it. It doesn't really confirm any canonicity that they're doing what all businesses do.

      By under their franchise. But if it was in-universe, just imagine. We hadn't had Kung Fu Panda for a long time. Obviously what's happening in there should've changed. What happens behind scenes during that period shouldn't be affected by the creators. (Edit: Never mind.)

  • What's up?

  • In Microsoft Word, I bolded the dialogue people and italicized the nonverbals for my transcript. But when I posted it on the wikia, random parts of the transcript become bolded, italicized, or un-italicized.

      Loading editor...
    • MediaWiki software doesn't work the same as word processors, so bold and italicized items don't transfer between them. To bold items, you need to manually put 3 single apostophes around the item ('''like this'''); to italicize, it's 2 (''like this'').

      EDIT: Ah, maybe you were referring to the random breaks in the wiki text? Those will automatically cut off wiki formatting. And yes, I think it's happened before. Not entirely sure why it does that when transferring from word processors - could just be another example of how word processors and MediaWiki software just aren't the same.

      Another guess is something to do with the way you're formatting it in your Word document, like line spacing. Maybe you should double-check those to make sure they're single-spaced and don't have random breaks in between anything?

  • I was thinking about piling up all the questions I had on transcripting and then post them all in one forum post. The ones you see in my profile are not ALL my questions since I'm still trying to get used to episode transcripting. I'm currently doing my second one and I found another question (and an example) to ask along the process.

    Can nonverbal actions be transcripted in the middle of a sentence?

    THE PO WHO CRIED GHOST: But when the proper respect is not paid, [One of the rabbits casually throw a red glass cup – that they drank from – on a tombstone and continue walking.] the dead can turn nasty!

    At this part, Po actually does stop talking to let the scene progress (though I don't think this happens in real-life storytelling).

    I also had the same issue (and another issue of making my descriptions too long) on my previous episode transcript relating to the part involving Po's recollection of General Tsin's heroic deeds.

    ANYWAYS, hope there will be a manual or some sort of Transcript Reviewer/Judge with a grade rubric in the future. In the meantime, I'll just pack as much detail as I can.

      Loading editor...
    • The example you gave could've been transcribed in two ways: just as it is, and having the bracketed line and the remainder of the quote on their own lines. Both ways are fine, as each both illustrate that visuals are happening as the quote is being spoken. Perhaps the latter way would be better suited to show the pause in speech, but both still work.

      Again, there's no strict code with them right now. I hope you don't feel like you need to follow every detail and rule to-the-letter. Just use your best judgment based on what's already been transcribed. The one you added looks great! :)

  • Hi Spottedstar ,but i think Kunica did made a vaild point in creating that page.

    I He created it because we still dont know how many or alteast another Spiritual realms are out there in Kung Fu Panda Franchise Univeres,and Spirit Realm was never confirmd or was mentiod to be Hevean since ,Hevean in both Asian and Western religions is described as a place were mortal Good souls reside while as we have seen in 3 Film Spirit Realm is only host to Kung Fu Masters and 2 villlans:Tai Lung and Kai ,so this specific realm is like Purgatory or Helhiem,in other words if Spirit Realm was that finale destination were charchters after they die go then were are all Souls Good or Bad i mean there should have been or shown to us at least 50 000 or 4000 mortal souls alongside Master Oogway ,Kai and other Kung fu Masters,until its confirmd from producers of film franchise that  Hevean and Spirit Realm  are the same place ( wich i higly doubt they are ) we cannot say that they are.

    Since in each univeres from comics,cartoons,books or film univeres were Spirituality and Magic are real you need to have 3 specific Afterlife worlds: Hevean for Good mortals/Gods,Spirit Realm for Good/Evil Kung Fu Masters and Underworld for Evil mortals/Demons.

    • There were never any clear specifics given about any of it. Even the Underworld was only ever mentioned in a single episode of the TV series, which a lot consider to not be canon to the films anyway. That said, your theory makes a lot of assumptions by itself. Because the film didn't show anyone else in the Spirit Realm apart from kung fu masters, Kai and Tai Lung, you automatically assumed that no one else is there and that, hence, they're elsewhere ("heaven" - which is how to spell it, by the way). However, I don't recall heaven ever being mentioned as a specific place, other than Oogway's ascension to "the heavens", as he was shown literally doing in the first film.

      The filmmakers will very likely never confirm details or give any specifics on the topic, and unfortunately there's not much that can be done about it. I believe they like keeping the vagueness so that the KFP universe encompasses many aspects of many cultures and beliefs, rather than narrowing it down to just one or two.

      All I'm trying to do is keep the wiki's content focused on citable, in-universe information, and at this point in the franchise's story, assuming there are other worlds and planes of existence apart from the Spirit Realm (and even the Underworld) is just too presumptuous.

      I do appreciate you giving an effort in creating articles on this wiki, though. The place is pretty much a ghost town at present time, and it's nice to see KFP fans like yourself gathering information and sharing it on here. Just keep in mind that there's active regulation on the content; it's not personal at all, it's just to help keep the wiki's integrity.

    • Yes you are right,but we still dont know anything about Afterlife Realms or Worlds in Kung fu Panda Univeres,evean in tv series like are there also magical world filled with magic or magical beings and creatures.Is the Hevean place were also Dragon Gods are located ? you know because in both movies and tv series the producers dint give as any much info on Afterlife ,only thing they did was showed us this Spirit Realm were Kung Fu Masters and some villans reside,but not the places were Evil and Good people go after they pass away.And yes i know about regulation,by the way do you think somebody should creat article page called Earth since both Underworld,Spirit Realm and Earth are actully worlds,since all events,storylines,timelines and locations take part in a world ? And yes the filmakers well will not evean notice that or evean reveal to us,but as we love to see fights in this films but problem is that when you have one afterlife world all souls of good/evil people are all stuck all toghtere,and yes term "Heveans " chould mean the sky,but most of the times it is actully a phares referring to a specific realm or world.

      That was exactly my point. You are suggesting we create articles based on information that hasn't (yet) been revealed in the franchise. Just because I'm leaving the Spirit Realm and Underworld articles up (which are the only other existence planes ever mentioned apart from the mortal realm) doesn't mean that I'm presuming they're the only ones in existence. Sorry that you misunderstood that.

      And yes i know about regulation,by the way do you think somebody should creat article page called Earth since both Underworld,Spirit Realm and Earth are actully worlds,since all events,storylines,timelines and locations take part in a world ?

      Someone did try to create a page for "Mortal Realm", but I thought it was unnecessary because we don't know anything else about the mortal realm in the franchise other than what Po experiences. There is a China article though; that's about as close as it'll get at this point.

      but problem is that when you have one afterlife world all souls of good/evil people are all stuck all toghtere,and yes term "Heveans " chould mean the sky,but most of the times it is actully a phares referring to a specific realm or world.

      I think you're making a lot of assumptions again. The KFP universe may function differently than the real world does (as far as beliefs go, anyway). I personally think it makes a lot of sense that when Oogway ascended in the first film that he ended up in the Spirit Realm, as he stated at the end of the 3rd film that he lives there. Does that mean everyone goes there when they die? Maybe not, but maybe they do, and the realm is just so vast that you never see them.

      Those are all just theories, though, and I'm trying to keep the wiki's content focused on non- (or at least less-) theoretical information.


      By the way, I didn't directly point it out in my last post, but I do know that you're actually Kunica. Your typemanship, spelling, and wording are very recognizable. I wish you didn't feel the need to create a new account to talk to me or justify your actions; neither were necessary. Alongside that, it's against wiki policy to control more than one account on here (called "sockpuppeting"). You're welcome to use just one account, and then I'll need to ban the other one from editing on this wiki. Please let me know which one you'd like to use.

    • Never heard back from you, so I assume you will want to edit on your main account, Kunica. Therefore, this account (Pauk 10) will be blocked from editing on this wiki.

  • I don't want to question your authority in any sort of way but in "Crane on a Wire," I noticed something very important. As Kung Fu Panda shares between Nickelodeon** and Dreamworks**, right? Well, imagine this happens... IT would happen in the Dreamworks* Universe as well. So... two universes share the same thing but two things can occur:


    1. The Dreamworks* Universe doesn't get it back

    OR

    2. It happens in both continuums.



    • This is an unofficial name for what happens in every Dreamworks TV shows/Movie/etc.
      • This,too, is unofficial. It is unknown whether this is true or not. most likely false. Sorry if you don't know this. You can delete this freely.

    • Interesting theory. So are you suggesting something be changed?

      I guess. I mean just cause you don't see it doesn't mean it happens in the other way, you know what I mean? This is, without a doubt, a half/half theory [True or False basically]. It can not be proven just yet. I assure you we will find out later on. The offical website mentions it too... like IT's canon. ^.^ I will allow it to be kept just for the heart of users here :)
