    Don't be talking bad about my beloved Season Six!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I liked pretty much all of the episodes up until about Season 11.

    Without the wiki I don't know what episodes are part of what season. What season are we even in now?

    We're in Season 15 now. It's almost done, I think there's only one more on like June 2.

    Do you like the wiki? Have you joined it? Have you considered joining it? I happen to be an admin there...

    I do like the wiki, but I'm not really one for editing them. I never know what to add, what would be useless information. About the only thing I could do would be fix grammatical, punctuation, and spelling errors XD

    Are you really? How did you become an admin? Did you create it?
    I visit back there every so often but never edit.

    I'm the same way, like with Muppet Wiki for example, unless I spot something I know I can contribute to (which isn't very often), then I will, otherwise I use it for research... not only that, but the Wikia wikis have kind of been ruined for me since on my old computer, it was so slow and took forever to edit something.

    Just for the heck of it, here's my ratings for the seasons using the traditional one to four star rating system...

    Season One: ****
    Season Two: ****
    Season Three: ****
    Season Four: ****
    Season Five: **
    Season Six: *
    Season Seven: ****
    Season Eight: ****
    Season Nine: 0
    Season Ten: 0
    Season Eleven: 0
    Season Twelve: **
    Season Thirteen: 0
    Season Fourteen: 0
    Season Fifteen: 0

    Yeah, I am. After many, many edits, I requested to become one when they were looking for a new one. I did not create the wiki.

    But you should edit! We need more contributors around there.

    What exactly are the standards for editing things? I mean, the concept of a wiki has honestly always mystified me. Its kinda like another universe altogether

    Could you elaborate further? What do you mean by "what are the standards for editing things?"
  10. Sgt Floyd

    Sgt Floyd Well-Known Member

    I mean...well...I'm not sure what I mean exactly. Wikis could be from another planet as far as my understanding of them goes. Like...what is appropriate to add? How much detail is too much/not enough? What is encouraged and what is frowned upon when making edits? Stuff like that
  11. Hubert

    Well, as long the info somehow relates to the subject at hand, in this case Arthur, Postcards From Buster, and the Arthur specials, it is pretty much good to go. Pages are subjects like a character, a pet, a car, a house, an episode, a book, etc. The main things in Arthur can be subjects of pages. However a page titled "Hat" archiving all of the hats characters have worn wouldn't be a good page because of how big and generic that would be. We also have some special different pages, like a collection of inside jokes or character name origins. There isn't really a too much/not enough detail thing. The amount of detail added is what was added and we'll deal with it. I'd say that the more detail the better in most edits. Another important thing is that wikis always remain neutral, that they don't have opinionated sentences.

    That's a bit of info, feel free to ask more questions.

    You know what's annoying? They're holding the last episode until June. I'm REALLY sick of how they stagger these PBS shows.

    Sgt Floyd Well-Known Member

    Ugh...one of those icky Pal and Kate episodes is on today. I really don't understand the point of these episodes. They are poorly executed and everything about them just seems wrong
  14. Drtooth

    Drtooth Well-Known Member

    There are only 2 good ones. I liked the one about Kate growing up and out of touch with Pal... and I do kinda like the concept of D.W. growing apart with Nadine. Just... it's not that great a concept when they do it all that much.

    But I really disliked the second cartoon about the old lady and Sue Ellen being on a train. Other than the fact the word "Pedo" kept creeping into my head the entire time, I really hated the fact that it was clearly a Fern episode with Sue Ellen instead.

    I've been saying it for years, those Pal and Kate episodes are AWFUL! Their badness level is that of making Nostalgia Critic scream like a girl franatically... that's how bad they are.
  16. Drtooth

    It really seems like half the time they're trying to force spinoffs that aren't strong enough to carry a full series, and just dumping them there. Not that those would be spinoffs... but it just has that feeling like its supposed to be another show.

    I'm starting to really agree. They are quite lame. I especially dislike the episode about Binky's sister refuses to walk until that Italian Flea just so happens to appear and tell a lousy story for no apparent reason. Binky's sister has such an abrasive, annoying persona.

    Still, I'd rather see a whole season of those than one more "In My Africa" type episode. You KNOW they're working on another one.

    Eh...I disagree. "In My Africa" was bad, but those episodes are just mind numbing. Kate has literally no charm, Pal is just annoying.

    Honestly the only good character is Nemo, and thats a stretch to say the least.
  18. Drtooth

    Drtooth Well-Known Member

    I swear they're going to make more episodes like that. I can feel it in my bones.

    The Kate episodes have a cute concept, but half the time it's just screwed up. However, I really think the episode about the sock market crash being due to one rich guy hoarding all the currency was something that needed to be said. Unfortunately, they were talking to kids instead of who needs to listen to that lesson the most.

    I rewatched the episode where D.W. gets a library card and noticed this...

    D.W. openly brags that she can spell single letters.

    Mary moo Cow FAILS as an educator.

    I might as well play along, because as it turns out, D.W. was partly responsible for the world being blown up...
