Re: Follow-up on problems with Zap2it air dates[edit]

@MPFitz1968: Since this affects all television series, have either of you tried contacting Zap2it via the Contact Us with the information posted in the original discussion on what is causing the issue? This is a pretty significant issue that should be fixed. Amaury (talk | contribs) 18:55, 1 June 2019 (UTC)

@Amaury: I haven't yet, but that definitely is something to add to my "to-do" list. MPFitz1968 (talk) 19:01, 1 June 2019 (UTC)
@MPFitz1968: At some point, one of us should probably contact The Futon Critic about the issues for production codes of Disney Channel series, but that's not quite as big of a deal compared to this. Other Disney series seem to be okay (ABC, Disney XD), so it's only Disney Channel series themselves for some reason. Amaury (talk | contribs) 19:04, 1 June 2019 (UTC)

──── @MPFitz1968: Any updates on this regarding Zap2it? Amaury • 22:51, 10 September 2019 (UTC)

@Amaury: No, though one reason is I haven't written to them yet. Got sidelined by a whole bunch of things and this kept getting put on the backburner. Going thru the "Contact Us" on their site thus far is proving to be challenging, about what category this falls under ("I am having a problem or have a comment about..."). I could use "Upcoming airings", since that comes the closest. "Recommendations" might work too, but the air date problem is more a glaring error that needs to be fixed than something on the site that can be improved. Hoping to write something to them in the days ahead regarding the air date errors. MPFitz1968 (talk) 05:30, 11 September 2019 (UTC)
@MPFitz1968: I've contacted The Futon Critic at letters@thefutoncritic.com regarding the other issue: This appears to only be affecting all Disney Channel series. All other networks’ series are unaffected. This started sometime in early-mid May, as everything was fine before then. Production codes were being properly displayed as 101, 102, etc. Now the problem is, as of May, that production codes are displaying as, for example, V505 and don’t even match the seasons that a series actually has. See Andi Mack, for example: http://www.thefutoncritic.com/showatch/andi-mack/listings/ This one starts out okay, though that is not the case for the other Disney Channel series. As you can see with Andi Mack, it starts getting screwed up with "Better To Have Wuvved and Wost" which is actually production code 215; however, you have it listed as V301. The previous episodes before that beginning at V207 are also technically screwed up. The numbers are coincidentally correct, but that “V” shouldn’t be there. Andi Mack only has three seasons, and even your page says that under "Season(s)," but your listings imply five seasons. Like V511. I mean, just compare the season three episodes here (https://www.wdtvpress.com/disneychannel/shows/andi-mack/episodes/) to what you have. Seeing as this was fine before May of this year, is it possible that some software update caused this, but only for Disney Channel series for some reason? Is it possible to fix? Remember this is affecting all Disney Channel series. I only used Andi Mack as an example. Best regards, Amaury
I think I was clear enough. Amaury • 16:13, 11 September 2019 (UTC)

Fishy.....[edit]

Hi Geraldo Perez, new editor Mr. Dinosaur watches dinosaur films popped up in my watchlist and something does not "smell right". I think they may be sock of Mildred huxtetter but thought you may be able tell since you have filed previous SPI reports. The reason they seemed suspicious is because they have some experience based on this edit [1] (although it could be completely innocent, edited as an IP, etc.). The connection to Mildred huxtetter is because they made this edit [2] which is the same edit [3] made by Cooking Kitchen, who was blocked as one of Mildred's socks. Any thoughts? Thanks!

@S0091: Likely along with Valerie Kathryn Harper (talk · contribs) and 78.19.117.128 (talk · contribs · WHOIS) editing in concert doing same stuff on articles. Geraldo Perez (talk) 21:22, 10 September 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for this reply. What a mess! Is it worth filing an SPI report at this time? S0091 (talk) 21:30, 10 September 2019 (UTC)
@S0091: I started one. Add to it as you see fit. Geraldo Perez (talk) 21:41, 10 September 2019 (UTC)
You covered the one little kernel of evidence I had perfectly. :) Sorry, did not mean to create extra work for you. S0091 (talk) 21:51, 10 September 2019 (UTC)

Let's Go Luna![edit]

This article probably need a closer watching – somebody tried to inappropriately and incorrectly split-out both the episode list and the character list last month, and nobody caught the split-out on the episode list (the characters split-out was successfully reversed). In general, the editing at this article looks problematic, so it likely bears closer watching... --IJBall (contribstalk) 23:09, 12 September 2019 (UTC)

  • Apple & Onion is another article which seemed to have massive problematic editing going on right now. --IJBall (contribstalk) 14:37, 14 September 2019 (UTC)

Mena Massoud[edit]

Having an issue with someone who insists on overlinking common terms and ignoring WP:BLPLEAD at this article. Geraldo Perez (talk) 21:39, 13 September 2019 (UTC)

They are the ones clearly edit warring as they made the bold edit, not you. An all-in-one link like [[Toronto, Ontario, Canada]] would also be acceptable. The state or each level by itself, however, is overlinking, which is what the IP is doing. Amaury • 23:19, 13 September 2019 (UTC)
Shouldn't have to link US, Canada and Egypt as they are major geographical locations and countries. Subnational divisions are less well-known. Major global cities shouldn't need to be linked either but that is more contentious. Some people just like to link everything even if nobody will ever click the link.

Stuck in the Middle[edit]

Is this defining? Obviously, the series' main cast members/characters are Latin, but it's not a Latin television series, it's an American television series. Amaury • 19:27, 15 September 2019 (UTC)

Per WP:NOTDEFINING and WP:CATVER, I'd say no because it isn't mentioned as such in the article. Geraldo Perez (talk) 19:54, 15 September 2019 (UTC)

Erin Sanders[edit]

Are the WP:ABOUTSELF cites used here enough to support the bio info added?... I say "no", but I'll wait to hear what you say. --IJBall (contribstalk) 20:30, 17 September 2019 (UTC)

@IJBall: She directly states she is a Jew in that message. She doesn't mention Jewish descent at all. That is implied but she could be a convert too. Statement in article needs to match what she actually states. Geraldo Perez (talk) 20:36, 17 September 2019 (UTC)
I'll let you do the honors, then. Face-wink.svg --IJBall (contribstalk) 20:38, 17 September 2019 (UTC)

──── So this keeps being disruptively added to the article – Is it relevant enough to include, or should it just be removed? --IJBall (contribstalk) 17:54, 19 September 2019 (UTC)

@IJBall: Trivial and trite, of course she does. It is like saying someone is Christian and celebrates Easter. Geraldo Perez (talk) 17:56, 19 September 2019 (UTC)

Kathleen Barr[edit]

I just noticed Monday night that a randomized IPV6 number had inserted Didi Pickles from Rugrats as one of the credits for the Canuck bred and raised voice artiste originating from Toronto. Obviously bogus and untrue because everyone already knows that Melanie Chartoff voiced her.

If you can sometime would you mind warning them about putting hoaxes such as this like what FilmAndTVFan28 said to a 68 IP about inserting Dragon Tales being owned by Disney. Please notify your partners in crime about this ASAP.

Bye,

Puppy Dog Pals[edit]

I don't trust the 'Recurring' list here – aside from being just plum too long (to be believable...), I suspect it of being filled with patently fraudulent content. Suggestions?... --IJBall (contribstalk) 00:30, 19 September 2019 (UTC)

Unless it's crystal clear, like Big City Greens, character lists for animation series articles should only include the main characters. Amaury • 00:35, 19 September 2019 (UTC)
@IJBall and Amaury: Limiting the list to just the principal cast would be best and easiest. IMDb is likely correct for the cast list and anything that agrees with IMDb is likely correct absent verification by watching episode credits. IMDb does have a ep count per actor can verify with that and pick a cutoff number of episodes for recurring, 6 of 38 seems reasonable if choose to list recurring. Geraldo Perez (talk) 00:41, 19 September 2019 (UTC)
I've trimmed to only those characters that have appeared in 6 or more episodes (as per IMDb), as suggested. This was made more difficult because this is a 'Characters' list and not a 'Cast' list, and several actors voice more than one character... But the current list was including people that had just one episode appearance as per IMDb, and several more that were in just 2 or 3, which is not acceptable. --IJBall (contribstalk) 01:04, 19 September 2019 (UTC)

Categories[edit]

For categories like Category:2010s American children's comedy television series and Category:2010s American comedy television series on Nickelodeon and Disney Channel series, should we list both or only the first one? I'm asking because the first one seems to be virtually the same thing, just more specific. Add: Then we also have Category:2010s American children's television series, which then raises the matter of if we should have that and the second one separately or just the first one by itself, which encompasses both, for the aforementioned reason. Amaury • 05:01, 20 September 2019 (UTC)

@Amaury: If you follow the category tree Category:2010s American children's comedy television series is a subcategory of Category:2010s American comedy television series by genre which is a subcategory of Category:2010s American comedy television series. Per WP:SUBCAT "an article should be categorised as low down in the category hierarchy as possible" so parent categories are redundant when a child category exists. Category:2010s American children's comedy television series is the one to list. Geraldo Perez (talk) 05:11, 20 September 2019 (UTC)
So what I have at The Casagrandes for categories, which I just did a major cleanup on, should be good. Also, while I'm here, should Template:The Loud House and Category:The Loud House even exist? Ping IJBall and MPFitz1968 as well on this. There isn't that much content on either of them. I did remove some links, as just like with Girl Meets World, we should not be listing that template and category in the episode and character list articles, only in the parent article. And even now, it's possible that template and category shouldn't be listed on some of the remaining links there. From what I recall, templates and categories require a minimum of five legitimate locations (links); otherwise, they are essentially useless and should be deleted. And I of course say legitimate for the aforementioned reason that we shouldn't be listing templates like Template:Boy Meets World on List of Girl Meets World episodes. That template should only be listed on Girl Meets World. So List of Girl Meets World episodes, in this case, would not count toward that. Amaury • 05:25, 20 September 2019 (UTC)
