vol 26 cover

Where did you get the version of the cover you uploaded? Reddo 06:51, 19 April 2012 (MDT)

http://www.odysseyscoop.com/merchandise/26.htm Why did you delete the picture? AIOrocks101 10:18, 21 April 2012 (
I removed it because that picture is wrong, it was made by a fan and then mistaken for being the real thing Reddo 14:34, 21 April 2012 (MDT)

56 summary

where did you get the summary for 56 from? Reddo 21:52, 10 May 2012 (MDT)

I got the summary from the The Whit's End Podcast.--AIOrocks101 14:42, 11 May 2012 (MDT)

new covers

just curious where did you find them? are there higher res versions available? thanks Reddo (talk) 14:27, 18 November 2012 (MST)

nevermind, there were posted on CBD, right? Reddo (talk) 14:31, 18 November 2012 (MST)

Yep.

our favorites image

just curious where did you get the image from? thanks Reddo (talk) 16:18, 23 February 2013 (MST)

Never mind again, I found it on tyndale after a bit of searching, thanks for finding it. Reddo (talk) 16:31, 23 February 2013 (MST)

Gallery

I fixed the your gallery section on A Fine Feathered Frenzy. It was a very simple fix. You needed to get rid of the pipe (|) in front of image. Stop Wooton' Around (talk) 19:13, 17 July 2014 (MDT)

Update on Town Hall

I updated the B-TV topic. Go see it.

Catrina

I am majorly out of the loop (school and life) but I was wondering the source of the character being named Catrina. Only reason is because its odd that it is the same actress that plays Katrina Meltsner. Thanks! Stop Wooton' Around (talk) 00:20, 9 November 2014 (MST)

Countdown

How come we don't have countdown anymore? I found Template:Countdown but am not sure how to add it on the main page since it's blocked. Is it possible to combine New Episodes and Countdown into one template, such as Template:New Episodes Countdown?

Hey Iloveeugene. Remember to sign your name. I don't remember who it was, but an admin removed Countdown from New Episodes. He said the countdown was annoying. I don't think it is. I would prefer the New Episodes section to have the countdown, but I don't know how to change it. AIOrocks101 (talk) 11:42, 29 October 2015 (MDT)
Thanks AIOrocks. I could probably find it in the "view history" section. I love eugene (talk) 17:49, 29 October 2015 (MDT)

Is that legal?

Was this edit legitimate? Is the link for Sticks and Stones legal? It's not on Focus, It's on dramas.shaned.net, which I don't think we should share with the Wiki, because the site is not really an "AIO Reliable" site. Treat signature as wikitext (without an automatic link) (talk) 08:32, 3 November 2015 (MST)

I decided not to worry about the legality of it and just help out fellow fans trying to find unavailable episodes. I really don't think it's a big deal. I would never post a non-focus link to a normal episode. I've been trying to find unavailable episodes for years, I've found several, and there are a few I'm still looking for. I'm happy to help out another fan looking for unavailable episodes. I've seen on AIO message boards, fans sharing lost episodes, what's the difference? Anyway, that website is down now. Though, I could find another link. AIOrocks101 (talk) 17:28, 5 November 2015 (MST)
I know, I've been trying to find lost episodes quite a while myself. Did you try looking for the tapes available until 2011 (Not available for Sticks and Stones or The Telltale Cat) on EBay? Treat signature as wikitext (without an automatic link) (talk) 17:31, 6 November 2015 (MST)
Yeah, I check ebay for Odyssey stuff very regularly. AIOrocks101 (talk) 13:44, 7 November 2015 (MST)
So do I. It started when I bought Collection 2 and It had two tapes from album 21. I tried to find the other tapes, and I got some of them. You were the one that found the free episode links for Mission: Unaccomplished and The Dropbox, right? I think since they had 3 free season 1 episodes there should be a few season 2 episodes available, right? By the way, if you want to find free focus downloads for any episode (although your search will probably yield a "Server Not Found").
media.focusonthefamily.com/aio/mp3/AIO_<insert episode number here>_<insert episode name here, with an underscore after every word>.mp3
I'll check the OAC season 2 ones soon enough, but if you are on, could you? I also would like to find The Telltale Cat. I've gotta go now. Thanks! Treat signature as wikitext (without an automatic link) (talk) 16:02, 7 November 2015 (MST)
Yes, I'm the one who found the links for Mission: Unaccomplished and The Dropbox. But, I didn't do it like that. Mission: Unaccomplished was available on Whitsend.org, and I don't remember where I found The Dropbox. Yeah, you would think that since there are 3 free season 1 episodes, there would be 3 free season 2 episodes. But, I don't think there are any available for season 2. I did look for the season 2 episodes at media.focusonthefamily.com, and I didn't find anything. AIOrocks101 (talk) 16:17, 8 November 2015 (MST)
OK, thanks AIOrocks! Treat signature as wikitext (without an automatic link) (talk) 16:28, 8 November 2015 (MST)

New Info

I understand that I shouldn't add spoilers without a spoiler tag, but this didn't really feel like a spoiler to me. Her parent's names and professions, even if the episode hasn't aired yet, aren't really a "spoiler" of anything. Treat signature as wikitext (without an automatic link) (talk) 06:32, 12 November 2015 (MST)

I know this info came from the clip they played on the podcast, I skipped that part when I listened to it. I don't want to hear clips before I hear the episodes, and I don't want to know any info beyond the album summary. I tried not to read it when I undid your edit. I know it could be argued that since it was on the podcast, it's not a spoiler, but I would appreciate it if we just stick to the "Airing on the radio" rule so that people like me who don't want to know anything can avoid info if they so choose. Also, it could confuse someone who doesn't listen to the podcast, and wonder if they missed an episode. It's not like it has to go on her page right away. It's just a good rule that I like and I prefer we stick to it, even with the littlest detail, in all situations AIOrocks101 (talk) 07:04, 12 November 2015 (MST)

Scripts

Sorry AIOrocks. I put the script for You Win Some, You Lose Some in when it was in the "links" section. I'm having a problem with that because it's always in the gallery, or in the links, or in the notes, and I think we should have one primary place for the scripts. Which one do you like? Treat signature as wikitext (without an automatic link) (talk) 18:25, 15 November 2015 (MST)

I think the scripts should be in the gallery. AIOrocks101 (talk) 06:28, 16 November 2015 (MST)
OK, I'll work on moving them all there. :) Treat signature as wikitext (without an automatic link) (talk) 11:02, 16 November 2015 (MST)

basset wedding

just curious where you heard it was 2 parts? I've been able to actually get caught up for the first time in a year and I haven't seen anything, so I'm just wondering if I'm missing something, thanks Reddo (talk) 10:11, 28 January 2016 (MST)

I know it's at least 2 parts because of this picture. On the script it says "Part One".
A Very Bassett Wedding-cake and script.jpg
Also, I'm the guy who was talking to you yesterday about “The Feud of Mason County”. And, the pages for Whit, Connie, and Eugene don't work, so if you can fix those, that would be great. Thanks. AIOrocks101 (talk) 14:46, 28 January 2016 (MST)
Ahh thanks, I missed that, nice to meet you, I'll look something for those pages Reddo (talk) 15:18, 28 January 2016 (MST)

key suspect

I have the radio schedule and it did not list the key suspect as an episode in album 61, I'm not sure if what i have just has an old name or if that episode has been delayed in 62 but I checked with Nathan Hoobler and he said that the key suspect is in 61 like you said Reddo (talk) 08:46, 3 March 2016 (MST)

Ok. AIOrocks101 (talk) 10:10, 3 March 2016 (MST)

weekend schedule

How do you know that The Jubilee Singers are airing the last 3 Saturdays in April? I'm just curious because the AIO schedule I'm going from does not have the weekend episodes. Aiow 15:18, 10 March 2016 (MST)

I got it from the schedule on The Odyssey Scoop. What schedule are you using? AIOrocks101 (talk) 15:23, 10 March 2016 (MST)
after I asked, I saw that they had that up, so I figured that is where you found it. I'm using a file FOTF puts out, there are two one is a monthly schedule which has the weekends. The other is a very long term schedule, but it does not have the weekends (Reddo gave it to me) Aiow 15:45, 10 March 2016 (MST)
Oh, ok. AIOrocks101 (talk) 16:08, 10 March 2016 (MST)

OAC timeline

I love your OAC timeline. I was thinking about making something like that myself. Now I don't have to. Anyway, nice work. —Gooey98 ~ (talk) 19:31, 5 April 2016 (MDT)

Thanks a lot. I appreciate it. AIOrocks101 (talk) 19:41, 5 April 2016 (MDT)

All's Well With Boswell

Hey, I can't seem to be able to stream this episode. I noticed you were online and am wondering if you have the ability to stream the Broadcast version. Thanks Scientific Guy (talk/edits) 18:10, 1 July 2016 (MDT)

It works fine for me. I can add the info for it. AIOrocks101 (talk) 18:22, 1 July 2016 (MDT)
It's been a day, still doesn't work. Could you tell me if it is verbatim with the OAC version? If not, what is the precise order of the intros/wraps? And, is there something in it that says "Here's another Fun Fact from the Odyssey scrapbook"? Thanks again Scientific Guy (talk/edits) 14:02, 2 July 2016 (MDT)
The broadcast and album versions are the same, except in the wraps of the broadcast, Chris gives the address and says to write a letter. I don't know if you want to document that. I added the info, let me know what you think. AIOrocks101 (talk) 15:13, 2 July 2016 (MDT)
Looks good, I tweaked it a little. If you want me to explain why, I will, or you can just look at my change. Thanks by the way. Scientific Guy (talk/edits) 15:17, 2 July 2016 (MDT)
Whats the narration in the wraps for? And why did you change "Opening Narration" to "Narration"? AIOrocks101 (talk) 15:22, 2 July 2016 (MDT)
Whenever Chris talks in the wraps (besides saying the "Credits"), I call that "Narration." Flash Flood does not have this. Opening Narration seems a bit redundant. See here (list not yet complete). Scientific Guy (talk/edits) 15:33, 2 July 2016 (MDT)

Intros/Wraps

Can you do me a favor? I am going to be gone this week, so, if possible, here's what I want you to do: Listen to the Intros/Wraps of each episode airing this week, and tell me how EXACTLY they are different. You can put the differences on my talk page. I don't necessarily want you to put them into the episodes, because your style is different from mine. Again, this is my request only if you can and are willing to do this. Thanks Scientific Guy (talk/edits) 09:49, 4 July 2016 (MDT)

One Bad Apple - Both intros are the same. Both wraps are the same.
Not One of Us - Both intros are the same. Both wraps are the same.
Bernard and Joseph, Part 1 - Both intros are the same. The wraps are little different, but probably will not affect what you put for the wraps.
Bernard and Joseph, Part 2 -

AIOrocks101 (talk) 17:37, 7 July 2016 (MDT)

Thanks for doing that, I'm back now so I'll put them in. Scientific Guy (talk/edits) 12:21, 8 July 2016 (MDT)

Series albums

What’s the point of putting {{-}} in between 40 and 41? And why “01, 02” instead of “1, 2?” Scientific Guy (talk/edits) 14:21, 16 July 2016 (MDT)

Putting {{-}} in between 40 and 41 makes it so the top row stops at 40, and then 41 goes under 1, 50 goes under 10, 57 goes under 17 etc. It's a nice symmetry. Putting the zeros in front of the first nine albums makes it so all the numbers and dots in both rows line up evenly. AIOrocks101 (talk) 14:44, 16 July 2016 (MDT)
Ah, I see; good thinking there. What do you think of my new Unreleased episodes album art? Scientific Guy (talk/edits) 14:48, 16 July 2016 (MDT)
I think you did a great job on it, better than I would have done. The bottom being a different color is a little odd, but that's not a big deal. When I saw it, I was surprised that you changed it. I don't really think it's necessary to update it with the new logo and design, after all, we have 50 albums with the old design. AIOrocks101 (talk) 15:11, 16 July 2016 (MDT)

Once again, could you...

...Could you tell me the differences in the episodes airing this week? I'm gonna be gone again. Thanks Scientific Guy (talk/edits) 15:37, 17 July 2016 (MDT)

For all episodes: Both intros are the same. The only difference in the wraps is she says to write and gives the address. AIOrocks101 (talk) 19:12, 21 July 2016 (MDT)
Thanks. Appreciate it Scientific Guy (talk/edits) 09:18, 23 July 2016 (MDT)

This Week's Wraparounds

Before I say anything, I want to say thank you so much for doing this work for me when I've been gone. If there's anything I can do for you, name it. I would like to request again, will you tell me the differences in the episodes from 8/9 to 8/15? I'll be at a family reunion and may not have access to the internet. Thanks – Scientific Guy (talk/edits) 15:37, 8 August 2016 (MDT)

Oh, ok. AIOrocks101 (talk) 13:27, 10 August 2016 (MDT)

Empty Categories

Just as FYI, you don't have to tag empty categories or cat ratings with the delete tag. Occasionally we do go through the unused categories and unused cat ratings. If it's empty, it will eventually get deleted. Stop Wooton' Around (talk) 20:35, 12 August 2016 (MDT)

Patrice

Now looking at it a Patrice from 1912 would not still be alive in the Present Day. I thought it was just the kid and adult version of the same person. Stop Wooton' Around (talk) 07:46, 25 August 2016 (MDT)

Yep, it's two different people. AIOrocks101 (talk) 13:02, 25 August 2016 (MDT)

Whit to John Whittaker

FYI: I think it's limited to administrators but we have a much faster way of converting Whit links to John Whittaker, through Special Page:ReplaceText. Otherwise, that is going to be a never ending task, because I am sure there are a ton of links to Whit. Stop Wooton' Around (talk) 22:19, 25 August 2016 (MDT)

Yeah, that's only for administrators, so this is the only way I have to do it. AIOrocks101 (talk) 22:26, 25 August 2016 (MDT)

Predicament

WE HAD THE SAME IDEA????? WHAT??? Will you leave me this project for myself? PLEASEEEE?? Scientific Guy (talk/edits) 22:28, 31 August 2016 (MDT)

What I suggest is we tag-team: you create new character pages and put in the information (Except for Leonard Norman, I'll handle that one) Scientific Guy (talk/edits) 22:42, 31 August 2016 (MDT)
Oh, and fixing Rhonda Adelaide 22:48, 31 August 2016 (MDT)
Ok, so I just listened the episode for the first time about an hour ago. I was up last night doing something else, and I thought I'd add the picture, and that was all I was planing to do then, but regardless, it's nothing to throw a fit over. AIOrocks101 (talk) 15:44, 1 September 2016 (MDT)
Eh, I wasn't really throwing a fit, I just tend to use too much caps lock and punctuation at times Scientific Guy (talk/edits) 14:12, 2 September 2016 (MDT)

New Episode Template

So what would I call the new template? I'm currently editing it under Template:Infobox Drama Information Scientific Guy (talk/edits) 15:04, 9 April 2017 (MDT)

I thought we could just rename Template:Infobox LCD Episode instead of making a new one. Maybe "Infobox Other Episode", "Infobox Other Drama Episode" or "Infobox Non-AIO Episode"? AIOrocks101 (talk) 15:34, 9 April 2017 (MDT)

I'm covering these this time; you don't have to. Scientific Guy (talk/edits) 14:25, 26 July 2017 (MDT)

Dude, I've done most of the work for these the last couple days, so I don't see how you're covering it. I just made the page, please don't just pounce on it while I'm working. That's rude. I don't have time to do a ton of stuff all the time like you do., I'm really busy with work and stuff. I'll work on it more later tonight when I get home. Let me do this.

Sorry about earlier (I'll remember that precedent for the future), but rude or not, the matter here is how to get the info out the quickest. I'm sorry; if you could do it right now I'd consent, but you're not here right now. Thanks for your work the past couple days, and I won't pounce if I see you making the edits next time. (P.S.

I sorta have to disagree with you there, we're just duplicating the official page info, so it's not about getting it up the quickest, you can monitor their facebook or twitter for that, it's about getting it accurate. Archiving the information correctly so people get the RIGHT info (Not guessing, or like the recent goof of changing "Find a Penny" to "To Find a Penny". Don't assume that a Character say, Emily Jones is in an episode just because the Actress is in studio. ~ OdysseyFan (talk) 06:23, 27 July 2017 (MDT)

Cast

I had not heard this. Is this written down somewhere in a set of formatting guidelines? Over time as I've added new characters to the cast, I've been organizing alphabetically. Crnel (talk) 08:11, 10 August 2018 (MDT)

I don’t think it’s written anywhere, but it is how we do it now. I can probably find somewhere to put it. This way just makes it easier to read. For example, If I’m reading about an episode where Wooton is a main character, I expect to see him at the top, not the bottom. Thanks. AIOrocks101 (talk) 08:19, 10 August 2018 (MDT)
A codified sorting standard would definitely be helpful -- not only for users who are new (or, in my case, ignorant), but also because the idea of importance to the episode becomes rather subjective when it comes to supporting or minor characters (many of which have been recently added). Maybe this would be worth opening up for broader discussion on the Town Hall? Crnel (talk) 08:49, 10 August 2018 (MDT)
Sure, we can do that. AIOrocks101 (talk) 08:52, 10 August 2018 (MDT)
I understand better now. Thanks for explaining! Though, if I may ask, what changes have I made that you didn't like? About the cast, I think we should get some senior opinions on it. I'll send Reddo and Jacob Isom emails about their thoughts. Scientific Guy (talk/edits) 12:42, 16 August 2018 (MDT)
I'm glad. No problem. I also just added a long comment on the Town Hall, hopefully explaining things better for people even more. There were a few things, one I can think of right now is how you add info from episodes that have premiered on the club but not yet radio or CD, to character pages and other pages, and just put a Big Ol' Red Spoiler Sign. It's distracting, it doesn't look good, and I don't like having this huge temptation box shoved in my face. I have, and others may, click it by mistake, and see something we didn't want to see. I do have the club, but I like to wait til the albums come out on CD, so I can buy them, and listen to them. I just enjoy it better that way. I think that the episode pages themselves is the only place the not yet fully released info should go, unless its non-spoiler stuff on the future seasons page. We don't have to race to add everything as fast as possible. OK, do that. AIOrocks101 (talk) 21:37, 16 August 2018 (MDT)
Template:Spoiler2: how's that? Scientific Guy (talk/edits) 13:52, 17 August 2018 (MDT)
While that's not as in your face as the other one, I really think it would be best to just leave new info completely off of pages that aren't the actual episode pages if the (non club) episode has't yet aired on the radio. What if its a page for a character that we haven't heard in a long time? If someone sees that spoiler warning on the character page, then they will know that character is in or mentioned in a new episode. And that could be a spoiler in and of itself, if that's something they want to avoid knowing. AIOrocks101 (talk) 00:17, 18 August 2018 (MDT)
Characters like Ed Washington have Unaired episode listed as their latest episode already, so are you suggesting we remedy that, too? Perhaps, with a page like Ed, we could comment out the info and then add it when the episode airs. Example: (commented out) … See Rydell Saga. Does Spoiler2 work there?
Side note: going off of our official info from Focus, it's fine if we say characters are going to be in upcoming episodes as long as we don't reveal the title. As much as I'd want to save users from spoilers, I believe this system is the best for us and keeps spoilers to a minimum. Scientific Guy (talk/edits) 16:58, 18 August 2018 (MDT)
Ok, I didn't know that was Focus' stance. Yeah, do that comment out for Ed, and the like. Rydell Saga looks good. Keep using that new spoiler tag. Thanks. AIOrocks101 (talk) 18:13, 18 August 2018 (MDT)
