Wanting to Help

Is there anything that isn't to massive but easy that I can do, kind of like deleting the old resource sections. All that took was look at the what links here page and delete the resource sections on the pages. Thanks! Stop Wooton Around 01:16, 6 March 2010 (UTC)

Hey your back could you please give me some ideas for stuff to work on. Thanks. Stop Wooton Around 04:27, 6 March 2010 (UTC)
I'm not sure, we don't particularly have any projects going on right now. The only thing really, is that we're trying to complete our album artwork collection. If you want to help with that, you can see here for more details.


Thanks Natedude24 for answering my questions. i saw on your front page that u listen to the Unofficial Podcast. I'm a huge fan of the Official Podcast. how do u listen to the Unofficial one? Sorry about the questions. I'll shut up and start editing after this! :-) AriaCurzonFan 19:09, 7 March 2010 (UTC)

Again, apologies to Natedude for commandeering his talk page. AriaFan, you can go to Unofficial Podcast page and in the sidebar there is a link to the website, as well as a link to find the podcasts on itunes or subscribe to updates from the site. If I remember right, they only keep the last 20 or so podcasts on itunes, so if you want to listen from the beginning, you'll probably need to go to the website itself. Proverbs 22:9 Elementus Green 18:28, 8 April 2010 (UTC)
Chris (from the Unofficial Podcast) said he couldn't put all the podcasts on iTunes for some reason. AIOCREFan 18:40, 8 April 2010 (UTC)

Content box

How do u get the contents box that's up top?? AriaCurzonFan 07:12, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

Do you not have contents boxes on any pages? It only shows up on pages with more than three headings. I'm pretty sure it's enabled by default for all accounts, but you can check at your preferences under the Misc tab. Show table of contents should be checked. God Bless ~ Nate ~ Talk 15:00, 11 March 2010 (UTC)
Ok. it's checked. will it automatically come on? AriaCurzonFan 17:33, 11 March 2010 (UTC)
it shound; only on pages with 3 or more headings God Bless ~ Nate ~ Talk 17:43, 11 March 2010 (UTC)
On some pages it's disabled for looks. To force one anywhere use __FORCETOC__. Erwin Springer [talk] 01:14, 12 March 2010 (UTC)

Main Page News

Why did you revert my edit to the news section of the main page? The illustration has not been changed, it has been reframed. If you look in the Official Guide on the album 5 section you will see the original illustration for that album and it has Dr. Blackgaard standing on the hill, just like he is in the new version of the cover. I thought I should reword how it was said in the news feed so it said that. Also, you reverted my edit to the picture. Why? I thought it look better when all you could see is the cover. AIOCREFan 20:59, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

there's a glimpse of some of the new bonus stuff that's featured in the album 5 booklet in that shot, that's why Reddo 21:03, 11 March 2010 (UTC)
Oh, OK. I now see that Brock Eastman reverted it. What do you (Reddo) think of the news being changed? If you administrators agree that it should be the way it is currently, that's fine. I was just wondering... AIOCREFan 21:08, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

Bart Rathbone

I was looking at Bart's page, and I was trying to add an episode to the episode list, but I couldn't figure out how. How?? AriaCurzonFan 12:21, 13 March 2010 (UTC)

Those lists are automatically created based on cast lists on episode pages. To add an episode you'll have to add him on the actual episode page. Erwin Springer [talk] 13:58, 13 March 2010 (UTC)
I tried, but when I clicked save, it didn't save it! I tried it twice, but each time it didn't save it. AriaCurzonFan 15:43, 13 March 2010 (UTC)
Sorry to jump in here, but I happened to come for a different reason and thought I'd try to help. AriaFan, did you change the number at the top of the cast section to increase it? check here: Template:Infobox_cast_6_characters, which will pull up the template documentation. Each number of characters has its own template.Proverbs 22:9 Elementus Green 18:20, 8 April 2010 (UTC)


Can you check user talk: Reddo and see what you think of my idea about the genre? Also, the pages needed deleted category is pretty full? Stop Wooton' Around (talk) 00:34, 18 March 2010 (UTC)

Album 52

Is the Odyssey team really making album 52 or is it just a rumor? --AriaCurzonFan 17:33, 19 March 2010 (UTC)

no they're already making it, in fact album 52 is pretty much done and they're working on 53/54 as we type Reddo 17:37, 19 March 2010 (UTC)

Re: Spam

I read on [1] to delete it so other users wouldn't click on them. So I deleted it and then the page was blank so I put info back on. So do you want me to delete them and leave it blank or just leave it? I'm afriad that it might lead to some virus if someone is to click on it. Stop Wooton' Around (talk) 23:07, 19 March 2010 (UTC)

Usually spam will be taken care of by an admin within a couple of minutes of posting. Then the comment is removed from the page's history, and the user is blocked. All of the high traffic pages are protected, in order to prevent spam, so you shouldn't have to worry about it too much. If spam happens in a high traffic page, that is not protected, undo it, and request a protection. God Bless ~ Nate ~ Talk 23:14, 19 March 2010 (UTC)

Site Notice

Why do you keep blanking this page? AIOCREFan 19:59, 23 March 2010 (UTC)

Because when I am on my other computer, which is not logged into my account, there is no way to hide it. I find this very annoying. I just don't see it necessary to keep it up. God Bless ~ Nate ~ Talk 22:22, 23 March 2010 (UTC)


Is there instructions about how to make userboxes? If so, please leave it on my talk page. AriaCurzonFan 15:29, 30 March 2010 (UTC)

Album 52: Cause and Effect

Hi, I don't mean to be persistant. But the Odyssey Scoop has the very same summary included on thir album 52 page and they don't credit album 51 with the summary. Plus, there is tons of other onfo here on the wiiki that is from the official site or somewhere else and we don't give credit to the right people for those things, if that's what we're going to do. The way I see it, people know that we're a wiki and that we're going to use material from other websites and stuff so it doesn't really matter if we have references or resources for everything here. MarvelousMarvin 13:05, 24 April 2010 (UTC)

I also agree with Marvelous Marvin. For the Take it from the Top summary, we do not say "from", so why do we need to say "included in Album 51" for Album 52? AIOCREFan 14:23, 24 April 2010 (UTC)

52 summaries

where did you get them, are you sure they're right? i thought that the fast as i can one might be the fasting episode Reddo 02:13, 12 May 2010 (UTC)

I was just guessing, probably we should not put anything until we know for sure. I just took them from the summary included in album 51. Sorry about that. God Bless ~ Nate ~ Talk 02:44, 12 May 2010 (UTC)


Why did Hetchienna18 get blocked only 1 month? AIOCREFan 23:07, 13 May 2010 (UTC)

I just blocked them for a month because they posted one link. lots of times it'll be a very long series of links. if you feel it necessary, i suppose i could extend it to three months. God Bless ~ Nate ~ Talk 03:55, 14 May 2010 (UTC)


How close to Colorado Springs do you live? MarvelousMarvin 04:52, 19 May 2010 (UTC)

Disambinguation policy

Why did you change the Bob page back? There is lot's of other pages on the wiki that are just like that one and they usually have the word (disambiguation) in the title. Plus, I am pretty sure that would be the way Wikipedia does things too. That Bobo page probably needs to be fixed. And if it's not the way they do things, this website doesn't have to be run the same way that one is. Besides, the whole reason I did it is so that if I wanted to type a link to Bob Smithouser's page I wouldn't have to type his last name out every single time. It's a hassle. MarvelousMarvin 15:20, 22 May 2010 (UTC)

When there are characters with the last name not given, they are sometimes just put as (e.g.) "Bob". When there are multiple characters with the same first name, and no given last name, we put "(a)", "(b)" and so on after their first name. The purpose of a disambiguation page is to show all of the references to a certain phrase or word. Bob shows all of the characters and staff with that name. We shouldn't simply make Bob redirect to Bob Smithouser, because there are many other people named "Bob". There are lots of pages that simply have the word as the tile, and are actually a disambiguation page. Wikipedia works this way as well. Look at w:Bob God Bless ~ Nate ~ Talk 18:36, 22 May 2010 (UTC)

Old Whit's End Site

Hi there. I seem to remember seeing a page around here a few months back that had a link to an archive of the old pages of the Whit's End website. I think the link went to the Eugene Returns section. If I remember correctly, you were the one who posted the link. But I can't find the page or the link. Do you know if the archive still exists? If so, can you give me the link? MarvelousMarvin 15:47, 9 June 2010 (UTC)

Album Title Font

What is the font that you use to type out the not yet released title covers? You know, like cause and effect and the green ring conspiracy preview.

I made the font based on the letters on the albums. God Bless ~ Nate ~ Talk 17:38, 20 July 2010 (UTC)

Could you upload it somewhere so I can download it then send me the link?


Thanks for telling me about the block notification -- sorry I hadn't been doing it correctly. :) thanks! Rachel Maxwell 06:18, 23 July 2010 (UTC)


I think some of the questions in the Q&A should be moved so that they are grammatically correct. I will do this but I need to have confirmation.

Ex. What color eyes does mitch have? moved to What is Mitch’s eye color? or What eye color does Mitch have? I then could make redirects for similar questions. Stop Wooton' Around (talk) 23:12, 9 August 2010 (UTC)

Where did you find/who provided you with the .svg files of the AIO and FOTF logos? Could you possibly also get the .svg files for the Albums 1-46 AIO logo and the 20th anniversary version? Also, I wanted to let you know that you forgot to put the green ring in the new .svg file you uploaded of the Album 53 temporary cover. AIOCREFan 14:51, 20 August 2010 (UTC)

I made them. As for the ring, I did put it in, but I didn't make it a vector, so it was an embedded image. For some reason the wiki software doesn't seem to allow that. God Bless ~ Nate ~ Talk 22:07, 20 August 2010 (UTC)

Two Questions

Just curious.

  • Why'd you change your username?
  • There use to be like 3 people on here who had "24" and at the end of their username (including you). What was with that?

MarvelousMarvin 23:04, 11 September 2010 (UTC)

I don't really have a specific reason as to why I changed my username. As for the number 24, I have no idea. I had it because my birthday is April 24. God Bless ~ Nate ~ Talk 23:55, 11 September 2010 (UTC)

Whit's End

I moved that page because I though we decided to use (`) instead of ('). Why did you revert it back? Just curious! Stop Wooton' Around (talk) 00:17, 16 September 2010 (UTC)

(`) is a prime, not an apostrophe. Both (’) and (') are apostrophes . Though I'm not sure that a decision was actually made. I don't even have a (’) key on my notebook keyboard. God Bless ~ Nate ~ Talk 00:20, 16 September 2010 (UTC)
Oops, I was wrong. (`) is a Grave accent. God Bless ~ Nate ~ Talk 00:29, 16 September 2010 (UTC)

Creating Album Covers

How do you create a album cover for a album that has no picture yet? Do you get the picture from some where or do you just create it yourself? I think that the Album 54 picture looks very professional. Jared DeWhite (talk) 20:49, 4 February 2011 (UTC)

Well, I'm a graphic/print/web designer, so I have experience with stuff like this. I just make the album covers with Illustrator or Inkscape. They're really not all that hard to do. God Bless ~ Nate ~ Talk 23:32, 4 February 2011 (UTC)
What program do you use? Jared DeWhite (talk) 23:49, 4 February 2011 (UTC)
Depends. I have Inkscape (open source [free] vector graphic program) on my PC laptop and Illustrator (Adobe vector graphics) on my Mac. They serve the exact same purpose, but for the 54 cover, I used Inkscape. God Bless ~ Nate ~ Talk 00:10, 5 February 2011 (UTC)

Question about the Whit's End floor plan

Hay! I just wanted to point out a couple of things that might need looking at on the floor plan. First of all, there's no real back door to Whit's End in the floor plan. I know you have the door to the lobby and that's kind of in the back(ish), but I always got the impression that it is off the kitchen or the pantry(there is a pantry, right?). Another is that there is no pantry. I don't remember an exact episode that mentions it but it makes sense that Whit's End would have a pantry, been that its a Victorian style house. And there is no back stair to Whit's office. This is kind of like to problems in one because Whit's office is in the front of the building, and there's no way for a stair to go from the office to the kitchen without severely inhibiting ceiling height in the dinning area. Sorry for practically busting up the floor plan (to barrow the colloquialism:) but I just think it should be accurate. If you want (and show me how) I can do the alterations to the floor plan. Thanks Lonnie the piano player. (talk) 20:10, 21 November 2012 (MST)

that floor plan is from the complete guide, I did not make it. The creators of AIO did. God Bless ~ Nate ~ Talk 20:22, 21 November 2012 (MST)

account help

Nate, way back when I had you try to help me change user names from elements_green to elements green without an underscore. At least that's how I remember it it might have been the other direction. Anyway I can't log in with either of them and would like to be able to. Can you help? No matter if I use the underscore or not it tells me I was blocked in Dec 09 in block 754 to remove user. However,I was active after that date. I think what might have happened is that mediawiki updates made the two accounts indistinguishable, spreading the _green ban to the non underscore account. Thanks.

Reddo took care of it :)

It would be great, if the calendar did not only list the name of the episode to be or having been played on a given date, but also the episode number.
