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.
  • 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.

  • Hi Spottedstar; 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.

    • Hi Amanda,

      I've been pondering about Discussions for a while already, seeing that it's used on the mobile apps. I also know (from this blog) about the push to get wiki communities compatible for the new version of the apps, which IIRC requires Discussions enabled. I guess I don't have much of a choice in that sense, but the feature does look pretty slick and functional, and I definitely like having mobile functionality. So I'm supportive in that aspect.

      I actually wasn't aware that the Forums content could be migrated into discussion posts. I was hesitant on getting Discussions enabled because it took a lot of time and work to move all of our user blog content into the forums. But if the migrating will do most of that work, then I'm all for it.

      Let me know if there's anything on my part I can/need to do to help with the migration.

    • Awesome! I'm so glad that you are open to enabling discussions. Don't worry about the migration. We'll handle that on our end.

  • Hello, can we do a afillating from the ducktales wiki?

      Loading editor...
  • Greetings!

    I hope I'm not disturbing you at this moment, but may I please know how do I make something like what you did in the Contents section of the main page? Or at least just tell me the name/term for the thing I can look it up myself.

    Thanks ^^

    • (Referring from this conversation.)

      I wouldn't exactly call it "broken", per se. Technically everything still mostly "works", but like Nerf mentioned, the loading function has been tampered with, resulting in the slide's image content not loading on-click anymore. I'm pretty sure this is a form of "lazy-loading" - definitely something Wikia has been implementing to its site features a lot lately.

      So it seems like the better option would be to try and create the alternative one I referred you to - the same one Dragon Age Wiki and a few other wikis use. Perhaps you could ask someone on those wikis about it? I'm still probably going to give it a try in the future.

    • Yeah, I think I'll go and check them out.

  • Why aren't you doing anything special here for the tenth anniversary? You did it for the fifth anniversary, so why not the tenth?

      Loading editor...
    • I decorated, didn't I? :P

      I'm unfortunately too busy and unmotivated. Organizing the 5-year anniversary was a lot of work, especially because I did everything myself. I'd really like to just follow the fandom this year than lead it.

      I might do some last-minute stuff though, we'll see. Won't be anything too special, but I really can't do more.

    • How hard could organizing a ten-year-anniversary be? I could help.

        Loading editor...
    • Thanks for the offer, but it's too late now. We no longer have the time necessary to plan and prep.

      Asking how "hard" it is really an understatement. I'm not sure how else to describe detailed, thoughtful content/event planning while under time, quality, and creativity pressure. It sounds like you've never had to do something like that. Plus, because the one I did for 5th anniversary was so large-scale, I really can't think of any ways to top it.

      I think the decorations are enough - they'll be around until I make a new background for the new Amazon series.

  • I was just wondering, why does this wikia not have any articles for all the actors that voice all the characters of the Kung Fu Panda franchise? I clicked on the links to Jack Black and Dustin Hoffman and they just take you straight to their Wikipedia pages.

      Loading editor...
    • It was decided years ago that we wouldn't have actor pages here because they would essentially have the same information already available on their Wikipedia pages. I've seen other wikis have their own actor pages, and that's fine for them, but the only use they would have here is to list which specific media they voiced a character in. Some would have a slightly longer list (like Po's voice actors), and some would only have just the one credit. So in the end, it was decided that it's just not really worth the article space.

    • That's okay.

  • A user edited Tigress' page to say she has a secret crush on Po, which I believe is inaccurate. I'm no expert, though. Just thought I'd inform you.

    • Already rolled it back.

      I appreciate your concern over the wiki's content, but you don't need to report every problem edit to me. Unless it's a spam/vandalism report, if you feel like something is inaccurate, just change it yourself.

  • Hello!

    So earlier this year, you offered to remake the wordmark for the Madagascar Wiki, which I, at that time, respectfully declined. But  now, after some months of thinking, I changed my mind.

    Since the Wiki is going through a reformation process, where we are cleaning up and renewing most things, we might as well have a fresh new wordmark.

    So if you're free and don't mind, can you please help remake the wordmark for us?

    Thanks ^^

    • I'll see what I can do, but you'll need to give me time. At present, I am without my personal Photoshop program that has my setup and all of my tools/files (long story), and I've gotten some extra life commitments that are keeping me pretty busy. I'll let you know, though.

      Oh, it's fine, no rush ^^ Thanks!

    • You don't need permission to edit (unless the page is locked, in which case it physically can't be edited). As long as it's contributive to the article, it's perfectly okay for anyone to do. The edit they made looks okay to me.

        Loading editor...
    • Oh sorry. I'm used to wikis where you need to have permission to edit stuff.

    • That's very odd - the basic motto of a wiki is that "anyone can edit" it. XD

      The only exception to that with some wikis are those with subjects that have a children target audience (like Kung Fu Panda), and thus were required by law to switch off anonymous editing.

    • I think I've only been on such wikis.

    • Nice! I hope they get most of the original cast to return. Honestly, I don't mind Mick Wingert. His Po is A-okay.
