Bible Verses

I was wondering if we could have a template for a random Bible verse, or maybe a "verse of the day" on the main page along with the random quote. AIOkid - Mark 11:22-24 05:55, 18 January 2011 (UTC)

That would be neat!
Proverbs 31:3030Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.
~ Aria ~ (talk) 07:06, 18 January 2011 (UTC)
that would be hard to do, at least hard to do automatically without getting verses like "When X was old fathered Y who fathered Z . . . " Reddo 16:34, 18 January 2011 (UTC)
Could it be easily programmed to just use verses AIO episodes are based on? Rachel Maxwell 16:43, 18 January 2011 (UTC)
that would definitely be easier, I'm kind of busy with school right now but i'll try to come up with something when i have some time Reddo 16:53, 18 January 2011 (UTC)

My poll

I've made some polls, you can vote here.--WikiFan (talk) (contributions) 22:02, 18 January 2011 (UTC)

Requests for Poll Results

I've noticed a lot of users requesting for results of their polls on the town hall. Although I believe it is okay to ask for them but I'm not sure if the town hall is the place. After all isn't the town hall for requests for changes or improvements of the wiki not personal polls. The problem is I don't know a better way to ask for results. Maybe if we had a template kind of like the helpme template whereas it alerts administrators to the polls that need results. Just a thought! Stop Wooton' Around (talk) 03:00, 20 January 2011 (UTC)

The template idea is very cool. But I think until we can set that up we should just post on an admin's user talk page. If I get the time, I could set up that template tomorrow. — Eugene [talk] 04:10, 20 January 2011 (UTC)
they can just add showresults="1" to beside their poll ID and get their own results, but for some reason this doesn't seem to be catching on Reddo 16:32, 20 January 2011 (UTC)
That is what I did for My Polls, it makes things much simpler. AIOkid - Mark 11:22-24 17:07, 20 January 2011 (UTC)


I'm planning to use it to get my poll results, by using the Show preview feature in the "edit" tab. That way it won't automatically display the results, but I can get them.--WikiFan (talk) (contributions) 21:37, 21 January 2011 (UTC)
maybe if you could see how many people voted...
Proverbs 31:3030Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.
~ Aria ~ (talk) 18:43, 20 January 2011 (UTC)
Yeah That would be nice. AIOkid - Mark 11:22-24 18:46, 20 January 2011 (UTC)
Unfortunately there's no quick and easy feature like that, even for admins, we have to just look at the number of lines to give that out, maybe when i have some time i can try to program it, but that will have to wait Reddo 19:13, 20 January 2011 (UTC)
Well at least we can see the results now, thanks for showing us. 96.19.197.181 23:12, 20 January 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, Thanks. AIOkid - Mark 11:22-24 23:14, 20 January 2011 (UTC)
I created a help page for polls so people can read how to do it. — Eugene [talk] 02:11, 21 January 2011 (UTC)

Names of Episodes

If there's an episode with a wrong name how do I change it? Adventures inodysseylego

You can usually use the move tab on the top of the page to rename the page. — Eugene [talk] 02:12, 21 January 2011 (UTC)

Thanks. Adventures inodysseylego

Ordering Links

I have put ordering links for album 1, and album 2. If someone has time they can do more. What I did is put links for CBD and for Tyndale House Publishers. Jared DeWhite (talk) 20:00, 23 January 2011 (UTC)

Usally, the ISPN number is listed underneath the album cover. Then all you have to do is click on it and it brings up a variety of options to buy the actual album. So what you did was not necessary. But for some reason, the ISPN link is not on the 2 albums you worked on. Maybe one of the admins could expain why that is. AIOCREFan 16:21, 24 January 2011 (UTC)
The ISBN only shows on episodes, not Albums. If you find a way to make it like the episode pages ISBN, where it is underneath the cover, then please tell me, but I think it is done differentially on a episode page then a Album page. Jared DeWhite (talk) 17:53, 24 January 2011 (UTC)
couple of things, it's ISBN not ISPN, the reason that it wasn't on those pages is that no one ever added it and lastly what are you talking about Jared? I don't think I've ever seen an ISBN on an episode page Reddo 18:36, 24 January 2011 (UTC)
I got confused, on the episode page there are links to stores that sells mp3 downloads that's what I was talking about, sorry! By the way Reddo do you want me to delete the Ordering Links because I saw that the ISBN brought you to a list of online stores. Jared DeWhite (talk) 21:25, 24 January 2011 (UTC)

If I want to delete my user and create a new one is there a way to do that?

Someone could block your user, but why are you wanting to create a new user? Jared 17:11, 25 January 2011 (UTC)


Because I think I put something into my user page that is preventing me from getting to it.

Then do you want me to block you? Jared DeWhite (talk) 17:14, 25 January 2011 (UTC)

What does that do?

It will make it so were you will be blocked from editing in your account for a period time. Jared DeWhite (talk) 17:26, 25 January 2011 (UTC)

I have just found a way to edit my page without having to hit edit while I'm on the page. So now I've fixed the problem. Thanks for your help though.

Your welcome. Jared DeWhite (talk) 17:30, 25 January 2011 (UTC)

Userboxes

If I create a userbox does it automatically show up on the list of userboxes here?

yes it does Reddo 21:53, 26 January 2011 (UTC)

Thanks.Adventures inodysseylego 16:29, 27 January 2011 (UTC)

Placement of the Help Page

Should we put like a link to the help page on the home page? Adventures inodysseylego 16:49, 26 January 2011 (UTC)

spam

is there any kind of software that doesn't even let someone post spam? cause this is just awful! this is the worst this Wiki has had! I think Reddo did something, but...man!

~ Aria ~ (talk) 10:17, 27 January 2011 (UTC)

It's like it is not working for me to put a {{subst:block|3 months}} in there talk page. because they are creating pages after they are be block. Jared DeWhite (talk) 16:10, 27 January 2011 (UTC)~
I already told Jared this, but for everyone else, you have to be an admin to block people. We can only hope that Reddo, Nate, or Erwin Springer get here quickly. I e-mailed them, just in case they check their e-mail sometime before they log onto AIOWiki. AIOCREFan 16:34, 27 January 2011 (UTC)
Reddo's here!!! Jared DeWhite (talk) 16:54, 27 January 2011 (UTC)
wow, that was bad but i think i got it all, i thought i had found a way to stop them but obviously not, I've installed reCAPTCHA now so when someone enters an external link they have to complete a captcha (those things that say enter the two words below and they're hard to read). but but here's a problem, It's still possible for humans to get around this I'm not going to be around this weekend if this happens again, so do either of you want to be admins to help combat spam? Reddo 17:45, 27 January 2011 (UTC)
Reddo I would love to become an Admin and help you. Jared DeWhite (talk) 18:57, 27 January 2011 (UTC)

Assuming you are refering to me, I would also love to become an admin to help combat spam. Ever since I have been on here, I have been frustrated that I could not do anything about spam. So, yes I would love to become one! AIOCREFan 19:06, 27 January 2011 (UTC)

okay both of you are admins now, just a couple of notes for you
  1. let people spam before you block them
  2. to block them click block on recent changes behing their name
  3. for ip's block them for 3 months
  4. for users if they only have one edit and it's spam like happened earlier today block them for infitie and block them from sending email and click to remove username from lists
  5. when deleteing spam filled pages clear out the part where it has the page content so it won't appear in recent changes
  6. if you misuse your admin rights they can and will be removed, this isn't like wikipedia
  7. if you have any questions just ask
welcome Reddo 19:41, 27 January 2011 (UTC)
Thank you Reddo. Jared DeWhite (talk) 20:38, 27 January 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, thanks Reddo. I promise you I will not misuse my admin rights (and I don't know what they do about that at wikipedia). AIOCREFan 21:57, 27 January 2011 (UTC)
January 26th we had to block 9 users because of spamming, 39 on January 27th, 22 yesterday January 28, and today the 29th we've had to block 7 users. I just hope that the 27th was the peak and it will continue to decrease after that. Stop Wooton' Around (talk) 17:41, 29 January 2011 (UTC)
I pray. AIOkid - Mark 11:22-24 17:47, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

We had a total of 13 users blocked on the 29th, 14 users on the 30th, and 3 so far today. AIOCREFan 16:17, 31 January 2011 (UTC)

okay, I've made it so that to create an account you have to complete a captcha now, hopefully it'll slow them down, let me know if you think you're getting asked to complete a captcha when you don't think you should be getting it Reddo 06:09, 1 February 2011 (UTC)
Yay! Hopefully this will help. Erwin Springer [talk] 22:01, 1 February 2011 (UTC)
I think it stopped.----WikiFan ~ (talk) ~ (contributions) ~ 14:02, 5 February 2011 (UTC)

ISBN

I have been putting ISBN's on the album pages, so if you find a wrong ISBN you could either fix it your self, or tell me on my talk page, thanks. Jared DeWhite (talk) 12:12, 31 January 2011 (UTC)

album 53

i've put all the episode pages for 53 in spoiler tags due to the saga nature of it so people don't accidentally see things they don't want to. I know there are some people that don't want to get spoiled about big things like this and I'm sure there will be more and more spoilers coming out over the next few weeks. After the episode airs we'll remove the spoiler warning, are there any objections to this? Reddo 23:13, 31 January 2011 (UTC)

Sounds good to me!--WikiFan (talk) (contributions) 23:16, 31 January 2011 (UTC)
So does this mean that we can't post anything on the Album 53 episode page until Album 53 comes out? Jared DeWhite (talk) 00:59, 1 February 2011 (UTC)
no you can post all the details you want on the episode pages for parts 1-12, users will just have an extra click to see the page to protect themselves from being spoiled Reddo 01:21, 1 February 2011 (UTC)
Sounds great! Jared DeWhite (talk) 01:29, 1 February 2011 (UTC)
I noticed that polehouse is spelled different ways among the different parts. Officially it's spelled polehaus.(According to video and pdf that came with download) I fixed it for the most part...but now the pages spelled wrong still exist...... I figured out how to "move" pages a little late...Could someone fix this?--Jason 04:34, 3 February 2011 (UTC)

A Character Episode List

This Character "Prince Andrew" has a episode list that isn't working properly. I don't know how to fix it. Maybe someone can fix it. Adventures inodysseylego 00:35, 3 February 2011 (UTC)

that's because he's not in any episodes so the template doesnt know what to do Reddo 23:00, 3 February 2011 (UTC)

Ok. Thanks. 15:22, 5 February 2011 (UTC)

Contest

When is the next logo contest?

We have a logo contest at the beginning of every year. Stop Wooton' Around (talk) 00:51, 3 February 2011 (UTC)
The contest is at the end of each year, for the coming year. So the next contest will start sometime this November. Erwin Springer [talk] 01:27, 3 February 2011 (UTC)

Green Ring Conspiracy Part 1

The ratings are still turned off, but the episode has been released now. Can it be turned on? Adventures inodysseylego 20:37, 3 February 2011 (UTC)

I think we generally wait until it plays on the radio to make it where people can rate it. Jared DeWhite (talk) 22:54, 3 February 2011 (UTC)
ratings should be on now, we don't wait for it to be on the radio, all that matters is that it's available in some form outside of FOTF Reddo 23:00, 3 February 2011 (UTC)

Thanks. Adventures inodysseylego 00:57, 5 February 2011 (UTC)

Contributions template

Is there a template that shows how many contributions a user made?----WikiFan ~ (talk) ~ (contributions) ~ 20:59, 5 February 2011 (UTC)

no, i could install something to do that, but i don't want the wiki to be about getting the biggest edit count, i'd rather have people making quality edits rather than numerous small ones just trying on inflate their edit count Reddo 21:10, 5 February 2011 (UTC)
I agree with Reddo besides you can go under Preferences and add the Userbox contributions to your user page. Stop Wooton' Around (talk) 04:33, 12 February 2011 (UTC)

Album 53 Download

When you download the MP3 of Album 53, is it in iTunes format or in the format that the free episodes are in?

Also, while I'm here, how do I save the free MP3 to a file?
I think you right click the download button, and click something like "Save As Target".----WikiFan ~ (talk) ~ (contributions) ~ 21:41, 5 February 2011 (UTC)
If you're on the mp3 file in your browser (the end of the url is .mp3) then you can just do CTRL-S. And yes, AIO episode bought from the CBD store are also in mp3 format. God Bless ~ Nate ~ Talk 22:26, 5 February 2011 (UTC)
Are they in the exact format where the other window comes up, or does it download?

Character list

Hasn't Chris been in every episode? Because her character list only has some of the episodes. Adventures inodysseylego 21:16, 6 February 2011 (UTC)

Almost every episode. There is at least 1 episode where she is not in. --WikiFan ~ (talk) ~ (contributions) ~ 21:34, 6 February 2011 (UTC)
That one episode is 631: A Capsule Comes to Town

Polls

Is there a way to tell how many people vote on a poll? Namely my poll. Adventures inodysseylego 02:43, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

Only Admins can get to that page so if you tell me what polls, then I will get that for you. I notice you left me a note on my poll discussion page saying, when will my next poll be? keeping up with polls especially how I was doing it (posting a new poll every 3, or 4 days) is a lot of work, and also I have been busy lately with life. So if you are reading this and you would like my poll page to continue and you would like to help me keep it up then please tell me, or else it will most likely be shut down. Jared DeWhite (talk) 16:06, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
I like your poll. --WikiFan ~ (talk) ~ (contributions) ~ 22:38, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

Interviews

In The Official Guide there is a "Meet the Cast" and "Meet the Crew" sections with questions like: What is your favorite Adventures in Odyssey episode?, What inspires you?, How are you like--or not like--your character?, What are your hobbies?, How did you come to work on Adventures in Odyssey? and If you could have another job, what would it be? So would those types of questions need to be put on the actor/staff pages or as an interview like: Interview:Dave Madden (June 2008)?

P.S. If we do put it in interview form we could have for example: Dave Madden (Official Guide).Stop Wooton' Around (talk) 22:49, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

I think I'm going to put them under the Interview format if it is decided later that it is better on the cast pages I will move them. Stop Wooton' Around (talk) 01:04, 10 February 2011 (UTC)

Detective Polehaus

I think his first name is Tom, not Don, it's usually hard to tell but I heard it fairly clearly as Tom last night, of course I forget which episode that is now . . . . What does his first name sound like to the rest of you? Reddo 00:55, 9 February 2011 (UTC)

I think this is proof:
He very clearly says Don Polehaus. And on the behind the scenes video, he is listed as Don. AIOCREFan 16:13, 9 February 2011 (UTC)
I heard Don as well and fairly clearly. Stop Wooton' Around (talk) 00:12, 10 February 2011 (UTC)
I'm positive it is Don. AIOkid - Mark 11:22-24 23:26, 11 February 2011 (UTC)

Jana and Whittaker quotes page

I noticed that Jana's quotes aren't on her page, and has the link to the whittaker quotes page, but her name and quotes aren't there. I for the most part figured out how to add her and the preview looks fine, but every time I push submit it gives me an error message and doesn't get through. Can someone else do anything for this?--Jason 05:02, 9 February 2011 (UTC)

I think I got it. --WikiFan ~ (talk) ~ (contributions) ~ 21:56, 9 February 2011 (UTC)
Thanks. I don't know what the problem was...--Jason 00:48, 10 February 2011 (UTC)
I think I know what you mean. I had some trouble to. --WikiFan ~ (talk) ~ (contributions) ~ 02:10, 10 February 2011 (UTC)

Album 53

I saw on the random section on the homepage there was a quote from one of the Green Ring episodes. Because of spoilers, is there anyway that this can be prevented? EDIT: I mean random quote section, and no problem.

thanks, fixed now Reddo 20:52, 10 February 2011 (UTC)

My polls for people to vote on

I have some polls on my page. Adventures inodysseylego 01:06, 12 February 2011 (UTC)

What is spam?

What is spam exactly? Adventures inodysseylego 01:35, 12 February 2011 (UTC)

Spam is when people create pages with links to inappropriate content or advertisements just last month it was happening all the time until one of the administrators made it harder to create accounts preventing such things from happening again. AIOkid - Mark 11:22-24 02:19, 12 February 2011 (UTC)
Thanks Adventures inodysseylego 02:53, 12 February 2011 (UTC)

Fan Poll

I think we should start a fan poll page. It seems like now we just have a lot of polls on lots of different poll pages, if we had one Fan poll page then everyone could just go to that one page and vote on polls, and create polls. I would like to hear what everyone thinks, and also we would have to give it a name, it could just be called Fan Polls, or someone could think of a better name. Jared DeWhite (talk) 21:38, 12 February 2011 (UTC)

I like that. Maybe we could put the main AIOWiki poll on there to. And if every poll goes on there, we could call it "All Polls". Good idea! --WikiFan ~ (talk) ~ (contributions) ~ 22:49, 12 February 2011 (UTC)
But the polls might reset themselves after we move them, and lose the voting data. If that will happen, we should probably have a deadline for when to end out polls so that a poll won't be ruined. --WikiFan ~ (talk) ~ (contributions) ~ 22:56, 12 February 2011 (UTC)
I don't think the polls would reset themselves if they was moved. I have tried before moving a poll and it did not mess it up, and I think it would be good to have a two different poll pages, one for fan polls and the other for monthly polls that AIO wiki puts out. My idea had just been that there are so many fan polls in so many different places that it is hard to know everywhere polls are (and it would take lest time for voters with all fan polls (that want to) being on one page). Jared DeWhite (talk) 00:16, 15 February 2011 (UTC)
I tried to make a Fan Poll page, and I had some problems I was looking at polls I had, and how many everyone else had and realized that if everyone would put all of their polls on one page the page would be huge. but I did start a new category ([[Category:Polls]]) although the page it self hasn't been created yet. By the way I don't know how long it will last, but I started up my polls again.

Mysterious Message Update

Please refrain from telling others the answer. If you want you can send in you answer right here. Jared DeWhite (talk) 03:57, 13 February 2011 (UTC)

Uncle Archie's Carnival

Is there any info about Uncle Archie's Carnival that warrants a page of its own? I thought we had mentions of carnivals before but maybe it was the state fair. Any thoughts?

There are a few different references to carnivals. For instance, Like Father, Like Wooton takes place at the carnival when Connie goes undercover as a clown. And in Missing Person the carnival is in town when Rodney goes missing. Also there's a book called A Carnival of Secrets, but wouldn't have to include that. Pen Pal has a scene at the carnival as well. So we could do a page with carnival references, and list the rides mentioned. We could also have a separate page for Archie's Carnival as well, since it serves as such a prominent place/event in the GRC. --Jason 04:01, 15 February 2011 (UTC)

Contents

Is there a way to creat a contents page? If so, how? Adventures inodysseylego 00:56, 16 February 2011 (UTC)

What do you mean? Jared DeWhite (talk) 00:57, 16 February 2011 (UTC)

Upload

How do you upload a picture? Adventures inodysseylego 02:44, 16 February 2011 (UTC)

Never mind. Adventures inodysseylego 03:10, 16 February 2011 (UTC)

Complete Collection Userbox

Should we change it to "owns all 53 albums"? --WikiFan ~ (talk) ~ (contributions) ~ 22:08, 16 February 2011 (UTC)

I think we should Jared DeWhite (talk) 23:19, 16 February 2011 (UTC)
The thing is, other people who currently have that userbox and have all 51 albums won't know when that userbox changes, then there userpage will say they have all 52 or 53 albums when they only have 51 or something. I think that happened to one person when we changed it from 50 to 51. Maybe we could put messages on their talk pages telling them? There's a way to see which people have that userbox. Oh, and I meant all 52 albums, but if you think we should change it to all 53, we can do that to. --WikiFan ~ (talk) ~ (contributions) ~ 23:26, 16 February 2011 (UTC)
I just checked, and only 2 users have that userbox. --WikiFan ~ (talk) ~ (contributions) ~ 23:27, 16 February 2011 (UTC)
Maybe you could change it to "Owns complete series" and then you wouldn't have to change it every time. Most people who have the whole collection will probably buy every new one that comes out anyway. Also, does the complete collection include the Lost Episodes?Gooey98 19:46, 21 February 2011 (UTC)
I changed it to all 52.----WikiFan ~ (talk) ~ (contributions) ~ 21:01, 9 March 2011 (UTC)

Upload a pic

I uploaded a pic of Richard Maxwell from odysseyscoop, but I didn't ask their permission is there a way to delete the picture from this site (aiowiki)? Adventures inodysseylego 02:11, 17 February 2011 (UTC)

You can't delete a picture, only admins can, but if you press the edit button for the picture and put {{delete}}, it will tell an admin you want to delete the picture. --WikiFan ~ (talk) ~ (contributions) ~ 21:16, 17 February 2011 (UTC)
It has been deleted already. AIOCREFan 21:21, 17 February 2011 (UTC)
I just realized, I also uploaded a pic from Odysseyscoop without knowing I had to ask for permission, should it be deleted? It's this one: Green-ring-conspiracy.png --WikiFan ~ (talk) ~ (contributions) ~ 21:24, 17 February 2011 (UTC)
It has already been uploaded. AIOCREFan 21:27, 17 February 2011 (UTC)
Thanks Adventures inodysseylego 15:37, 18 February 2011 (UTC)
I know it's already been uploaded, but I got it from odysseyscoop.com and I didn't know I had to ask permission. Should it be deleted?----WikiFan ~ (talk) ~ (contributions) ~ 12:46, 6 March 2011 (UTC)

Q and A

I was wondering if there would be a way to make the Q and A section easier to search? Or if every so often one of us should go through and categorize it in some way? Rachel Maxwell 03:39, 18 February 2011 (UTC)

Categorize it in what way? Adventures inodysseylego 15:39, 18 February 2011 (UTC)
I was thinking something along the lines of grouping all the questions about characters together, questions about episodes together ("which episode did such and such happen in" etc.), questions about the future of AIO together, questions about Real People (producers etc.) together. Or something. It just seems that it would make the Q&A section more useful if people could look through the old questions easier. Rachel Maxwell 18:46, 18 February 2011 (UTC)
That would be nice. --Adventures inodysseylego 19:13, 18 February 2011 (UTC)
I agree. --WikiFan ~ (talk) ~ (contributions) ~ 21:50, 18 February 2011 (UTC)
i've been thinking about doing this for a while but i've been too busy Reddo 22:03, 18 February 2011 (UTC)

I'll be glad to get time do this if anybody has an idea really where to put them? As usual, I'm clueless with coding, but I'll be glad to move stuff around once I know how. :) Rachel Maxwell 05:09, 21 February 2011 (UTC)

Actors

Should we put a user rating on the actor's pages? Adventures inodysseylego 20:03, 18 February 2011 (UTC)

there already is under acting Reddo 22:02, 18 February 2011 (UTC)
I thought that the rating is from the episodes they've acted in, and that might not be an accurate portrayal of the abilities of the actors. Please tell me if I'm wrong about the rating thing. Adventures inodysseylego 18, February 2011 (UTC)

Newsitems

Since the secret word contest is over, should we remove the numbers from the newsitems? --WikiFan ~ (talk) ~ (contributions) ~ 22:22, 18 February 2011 (UTC)

Yes sorry i've been busy, do you want to do that for me? thanks Reddo 22:28, 18 February 2011 (UTC)

Is there a way to have a sig with a link to talk, and also still be able to use the way where you just type four of these things '~' ? Thanks. Adventures inodysseylego 02:28, 19 February 2011 (UTC)

Yes, there is. Make some seperate sub-page like User:Adventures inodysseylego/sig. Then, create the page and put a link to your userpage, and a link to your talk page. Finally, go here and in the signature section, type {{SUBST:nosubst|User:Adventures inodysseylego/sig}} . Make sure to save your new changes to the preferences by clicking the Save button at the bottom of the screen. Test your signature somewhere. One of the problems I had was that it didn't show the time and date after the signature. If this happens, go back here and put ~~~~~ in front of {{SUBST:nosubst|User:Adventures inodysseylego/sig}} . Save again. After you save, the ~~~~~ might disappear. It's OK. Now, you should have a signature with a link to your talk page, and the time and date. And all you have to do to put it on a page is put ~~~~ just like before. I hope that helps! --WikiFan ~ (talk) ~ (contributions) ~ 12:14, 19 February 2011 (UTC)

Okay I decided to create a Fan Poll page I think that will help everyone's poll (who wants to join) to get a lot more votes on their polls. Jared DeWhite (talk) 15:17, 20 February 2011 (UTC)

Jared's poll page

I need a person to take over my polls, or at least my polls idea, because I will be leaving the AIO wiki. So if you would like to help me let me know. Jared DeWhite (talk) 04:20, 21 February 2011 (UTC)

Why are you leaving? Gooey98 21:16, 21 February 2011 (UTC)
You can read my reasons for leaving on my talk page. Today was kind of my last day to do stuff. About my polls there is a time for every season and I think for this season my polls will close. Only thing I would ask is in about 1 week if someone will put the poll results up. Well good bye and God bless. Jared DeWhite (talk) 03:04, 22 February 2011 (UTC)
Just to let you know I'm returning to the Wiki. If your wanting to know why I'm returning so quickly I have more details of my return on my talk page. So I will be around if anyone has a question. Jared DeWhite (talk) 16:51, 23 February 2011 (UTC)

no, if you're worried about someone else editing what you've done, a wiki is not the place for you, if someone spams your page i'll see it and be sure to block them if you're page is spammed by multiple ip's it can be protected, but otherwise it's staying the way it is Reddo 23:30, 26 February 2011 (UTC)

Work Ethic

Guys, I've noticed lately that too many folks are becoming overly concerned for the "fluff" side of AIOWiki - that is user signatures, user pages, and things of that nature. Let's try to refocus our attention on building an AIO encyclopedia. Erwin Springer [talk] 03:07, 26 February 2011 (UTC)

I'm sorry, Erwin. --
Proverbs 31:3030Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.
~ Aria ~ (talk) 08:05, 26 February 2011 (UTC)
Yeah I've noticed this too, do we really need 20 edits in a row tweaking a sig? or a poll? or some other part of a user page? it's okay to spend a little time on it but I think some people are taking it a bit too far. Also 20 edits on any page in a row is way too much, there's a preview button for a reason, use it to test what you just changed looks like instead of just saving and then having to edit again, it helps keep the recent changes cleaner and easier to spot vandalism Reddo 15:36, 26 February 2011 (UTC)
I think we should also change this page back to what the top of what this page says:

"The Town Hall is a place where users can meet and discuss larger changes to the wiki, such as policy proposals, new ways of displaying and organizing information ect. It serves as a way for anyone to get involved without having to find the relevant discussion page."

Not guestbook requests, new polls, or things of that nature. I believe a higher admin (Erwin, Nate, or Reddo) should delete these and get back to Adventures in Odyssey.
P.S. I am also guilty of changing my signature, signing guestbooks, and voting in polls. I am not saying anyone was wrong I just think as a whole we have lost focus of what this wiki is about. Stop Wooton Around 00:53, 27 February 2011 (UTC)
I think surveys and signatures are fine, I mean as long as we aren't obssesed with them. because the surveys are about AIO, and until the next album comes out, there really is not that much to do, for non-admins i mean. sure we can add trivial facts, and fix broken links and such, but you have to search for such things.
@Stop Wooton Around, are you saying that the higher admins should delete polls, sigs and guestbooks? Why? I agree with AIOkid. As long as we aren't editing those all the time. And, with what AIOkid said, there isn't much to do. It is mostly admins deleting things or such. Now, I realize that doesn't mean to become obsessed with them, but allow for a little fun! And Wooton, if I have totally missed what you are saying, please tell me! :-) I'm up REAL early, so I'm not quite awake yet! :-) --

P.S. and with a sig, it makes it easier to get to talk pages and it's nice to have a Bible verse, and that is something I see alot of users have.
The problem though is that this isn't really a site for things like polls or guestbooks. Sure, I think we can have a poll every now and then, but the main purpose of a wiki is to have a source for accurate information. A lot of our content edits are made by unregistered users. I think we need to try to grow the number of full articles, instead of having hundreds of thousands of edits that are just somebody changing their signature 30 times in a row. As Erwin said, let's try to make this a complete AIO encyclopedia. God Bless ~ Nate ~ Talk 07:28, 27 February 2011 (UTC)
Very true. I think I may have inadvertantly been a small part of that as well. I can say that if you want polls and that sorta fun you could check out Campbell County message boards, or the Town of Odyssey. Both are great places for discussions and polls. I must disagree about the part of there not being much to do. There's character pages that could be worked on, episode pages without quotes and possibly other things of that nature. But as I stated, if you're looking for a more entertainingfull site, check out Campbell County MB or Town of Odyssey. --

the perfect witness

I see that on the back of album 23, The Perfect Witness is spelling A Perfect Witness. A while ago, I moved the first page to what spelling on the back said, but someone moved it back to The. what should it be? --

~ Aria ~ (talk) 07:57, 26 February 2011 (UTC)

i'm pretty sure it's the, it's listed as the on the official site [2] plus the makes more sense in that the refers to jenny whom the episode is about, it's not just about any perfect witness. also there's a line right from the episode (part 3 i think, i haven't listened for a long time) where Detective Ethan says "They never thought she'd be 'The Perfect Witness'". Those are my reasons why i think it's the and not a. We'll know for sure if they ever get around to re-releasing it with new art Reddo 15:28, 26 February 2011 (UTC)
