  • You around anymore?  I'm getting ready for 2016 Oscar nomination announcements was wondering if you will be here or not.  Let me know.

    Thanks,

    • I plan to be around as much as possible during the Oscar run, but I don't think I can be as active as in years past. I have a lot going on personally and this site just doesn't factor in particularly highly in the running for my time. I will be on as I'm able, however, just not likely early on Thursday morning.

    • No worries, just wanted to check with you before I just go nuts with posting Thursday A.M.  LOL.  I got it covered. ;)  

      Hope all is going well for you.  I'm doing fine!  Have you seen all the films or the potential ones?...LOL.  I have on most accept for a couple but hoping to remedy that soon.

      I can't say the latter part of last year I was around much, just too much going on then but I'm around now.  

      Take care.

  • Hi Mark!

    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?).

  • Hey,

    I have been editing the Award Pages, i.e. Best Production Design, Best Makeup, etc.  I didn't like the idea of having a gazillion pages for the same award due to name changes other than the awards that were splt into two categories, i.e. Art Direction (black and white) and Art Direction (color).  So where just the name changed from one to another, I wanted to go ahead and keep it all on the new name but still show it on the individual lists/movie pages as it's original name so did the for example:

    Best Production Design | Best Art Direction, so that when you click on Best Art Direction it goes to the Best Production page.  I hope I'm making sense  here.  Anyway, the problem I have now is on the Movie pages...our template we have for FilmWins and FilmNoms, will not allow me to do that unless I add brackets but then the brackets show up in white.  Is there a way to change that?  I cannot figure it out for the life of me.  It's driving me nuts.  LOL.

    Thanks,

    MadV

    • I think making a single page for the same award makes sense, using the current name, but denoting in the intro text the history of the award and its name change(s).

      As for the template issue, lemme take a look at the examples and see what we can do.

        Loading editor
    • I simply created a redirect on Best Art Direction pointing to Best Production Design. Now links to both articles will take the reader to the latter. If you need to this for any other categories, simply type

       #REDIRECT [[Article Title]]

      As the only content on the page to be redirected.

  • Hey there,

    Haven't seen you around in a quite awhile.  I hope all is ok and going well for you.

    I need your opinion.  I'm adding oscar-winning and oscar-nomninated pictures to the actors pages but I can't decide what I like better.  Can you go take a look at the following  and tell me which you like better?

    Christian Bale & Bruce Dern is one way  and Leonardo DiCaprio is another way.

    It's kind of driving me crazy...lol.  Once minute I think I want it this way and then no I want it that way then the other...lol.

    Thanks,

    MadV

    • Nevermind...I made a decision on them.  I think doing them with all pictures from all their winning or nominated films could just get out of control, i.e. Meryl Streep...just too much.  So I've decided on just the one photo of each.

      If you think differently or have other ideas, let me know.

      Thanks,

      MadV

    • I think adding pics of them in their various films as a gallery at the bottom of the pages isn't a bad idea, but not something we'd need to or be able to do for every film of every actor over 90 years.

  • Hey man,

    The quiz is live- http://oscars.wikia.com/wiki/Oscars_Quiz

    This is the first quiz with videos in it we've done and we're experiencing a bug- the correct answer video for the third question is not auto-playing.  I'm working on getting this fixed and we won't promote the quiz till it is fixed, but wanted to share it with you now.

  • Hi,

    How are you doing?  Andy brought to my attention something we didn't think about.  In the early years of the Oscars, pre 1934, eligibility was done differently, so a film that was released in 1929, could be eligible at the 1931 oscars.  The film template forces the categoreis to show , for example 1929 films, 1930 nominated films when in actuality it was nominated in 1931.  I took a look at the template, and dang if I know how to change that one.  

    I know you are super busy and with your surgery coming up this will have to wait but I wanted to mention it so you could put it on your list.  For now, I've told Andy to leave the early years alone for now until we get this resolved.

    Thanks,

    MadV.

    • Added to the list. Between work, a pending surgery, and moving this weekend, I'm totally booked. I trust you and Andy to keep things updated following the ceremony on Sunday, and I should be back to editing regularly within a week or so after that.

    • Good luck with everything.  This weekend was exhausting as I'm sure you can see.  See ya when you get back.

    • Those questions all look good. I'd prefer if the titles of all the movies were alphabetized in the options so that there's no order bias, and that they're all italicized. I don't know the final format of the quiz in terms of wiki markup, but if any names and film titles could also be wikilinked, that'd be great as well.

    • Is there a way I could view these as well?  Thanks
