  • Hello! I'm just wondering, why did you revert my edit? Would it be better to collect the videos under their own header at the bottom of the page, perhaps?

    • Any particular reason for that "no"? I just think the videos and playlists are very interesting to watch and it would be easier to find them directly from the Academy Awards pages. One link to a YouTube playlist per page would not hurt the consistency at all, especially if all the pages had one.

  • Hi there!

    I messaged Yoda- but not sure if he's around. I created the 2015 Oscars Movie Fashion Awards- do you think it's okay if I put it somewhere on the main page (maybe right rail?).

    Thanks in advance :) Asnow89 @@fandom (profile)•(talk) 17:31, February 19, 2015 (UTC)

    • Hi,

      Sorry yeah Yoda is not around as much currently, he has other pressing engagements at the moment.  I am co-owner and Admin as well.  I've put up as a feature on the main page.  Take a looksee.  Thanks for contacting me about it.  Looks like fun!  Once the Oscars is over and a week or so has passed, I'll move over to the side bar.

      Thanks,

      MadVelvet

  • Hi there!

    Though you might already know about, I thought I’d remind you about [Special:LicensedVideoSwap|Wikia’s Video Swap tool], which allows you to very easily swap out YouTube videos embedded across your community for the Wikia equivalent. It only effects YouTube videos with a matching Wikia video. Swapping out your videos for matching officially licensed Wikia videos means that the videos on your community are less likely to be taken down and rendered unwatchable.

    With your approval, I can go through and make these swaps for you — if you’d rather undertake this task yourself — or if you’re uninterested entirely — just let me know! I'll likely start making some of the swaps for you in a week, so be sure to let me know as soon as you can if you'd rather not make the switch."

    Thanks!

    • Hi,

      I've heard about ti but just haven't had the time to take a looksee.  I don't mind if you want to do this but Only if they are good quality and you follow our format.  I much appreciate your wanting to contribute.  I just got vandalized and had to fix that.  

      Thanks so much for your wanting to contribute and I look forward to seeing what you do.

  • Hi MadVelvet, would be great if you would promote the oscars quiz on the main page someplace http://oscars.wikia.com/wiki/Oscars_Quiz

    Or I can do it with your permission!

    Thanks, Peter@fandom 23:36, February 21, 2013 (UTC)

    • Feel free to go for it.  Maybe under Featured Media? I trust your judgment.  I thought yoda may have done it.  Thanks for making the quiz as well!!  

      Thanks,

  • {{PersonNom}} and {{PersonWin}} should now allow for the nation1, nation2, ... nation6 parameters, which will add "(representing {{{nation1}}})" on that nomination's line. This doesn't affect the "shared with" parameter at all. Were there other changes you needed made to the nomination and win templates?

      Loading editor
    • Thanks, I'll go and check what needs updated with that.  I do have a question on this as well:  The Academy database does not show the Director as the nominee even though that is who will accept it, nor do they show it under the Director's count of nominations/wins.  Do we want to show that? Like I did with Federico Fellini, officially the database only shows his noms/wins for everything but Foreign language films but I listed those and added them to his nom count.  I hope that makes sense.

      Only other change that I can think of right now on those two templates is how to reflect the special/honorary awards.  Ive been doing them the old way with their own section but if we want to reflect those under their wins, I'll need something that allows me to type what it's for, see Sophia Loren as an example. There are others who have special technical awards for creating a camera or process of filming or whatever that they receive a special award for so not sure if we want to just call it special1, special2 or keep those in their own sections and create a Person Special template.

      I won't be on until later in the afternoon tomorrow, big interview happening.  Fingers crossed.

  • When you get a chance, go to the Chat link at the top of the wiki or along the righthand sidebar. I want to see if we can both be on live during nominations to coordinate getting info up quickly.

    • I'm on there but you are away.  I should be around for the next couple of hours and then again later on.

  • It's been a few weeks since I've seen you around and just wanted to take a moment today to wish you a happy holiday season, even if today is technically the end of the period. Now that I'm done with traveling and other holiday-related business, I should be able to get more done on the site. We also have nominations coming in just over a week's time, so we'll get a slew of new material to put up then. Exciting stuff! Anyway, hope you're well.

    • Hi,

      I'm sorry it's been a busy holiday season.  I should have come and said Happy Holidays, my apologies.  I've just been really busy.  It's slowing down and getting back to normal so I should have more time to start working again.  Once noms come out, let me know how you want to split it up, that way we can get it all up quick.

      Hope your holiday season was great!!!  Happy New Year!!!

    • No need to apologize. I understand the holidays are busy and simply wanted to wish you well.

  • Since you're doing so much work on the wiki (and I have been lax since Oscar season), I made you an admin so you can delete pages and do other admin-y stuff. Let me know if you have questions about your new powers. Keep up the great work, and I'll likely get into actual content editing in a month or so when awards season kicks into full gear. —yoda8myhead (talk) 18:25, November 19, 2012 (UTC)

    • Wow, thanks so much...I'll have to look into those new "powers" hahahahaha. I'm having a ball, this is like therapy for me. I'm learning lots of interesting details about people and tidbits about movies that I never knew. By the way 2012 is done accept for a few category descriptions but all the films and people are done, working on 2011 now.

      Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
