Hello. Haven't talked in awhile, how's it been? I took a little bit of a break from editting. (Aside from the daily edit to get that coveted badge.) I began planning how I'm gonna approach this. So I'm working on a system that devides 12 major scenes from the episodes into the gallery with a caption explaining each scene. The reason for it being 12 is so that the gallery is nice and even, since the gallery system is ordered by rows of 3. The first photo will be the first scene that sets up everything. Example: Carly Beth and Sabrina discover the Novelty Shop in The Haunted Mask, Amy receives Slappy in Night of the Living Dummy II, etc. The next half a dozen photos will the be build up to where the protagonist discovers what's really going on in the story. Example: Build up to Carly Beth discovering the mask is evil, Amy realizing Slappy is alive, etc. The next few is the climax of the story. Doesn't really need any examples for that one. The last photo will be the ending twist of the story. Example: Noah puts on the Haunted Mask, The Kramer's discover that Dennis is alive, etc. How do you feel about this system?
I think it's a fabulous idea, but shouldn't you be taking an admin's opinion first? As I stated before, I'm against the existence of a gallery entirely, but the system you just suggested actually serves a purpose, rather than merely displaying random frames; I like that.
Sorry to jump in, but I'll express a concern: spoilers.
An image gallery is very big and difficult to overlook. On Deep Trouble's page, the screenshots are perfectly ordered and show pivotal moments from the plot... And I kind of worry about that, because it gives away the twist. (I'm only mentioning this because it's bugged me for a while.) I don't want the galleries being totally collapsed by default (as that makes them too easy to overlook). I also don't think galleries need their own pages. I don't know a solution. It's not a huge concern, but a valid concern nonetheless.
I also think limiting the pages to 12 images is maybe too strict and will be horrible unending agony to enforce.
(Also, upon review, I disagree with Andrew's decision to remove the headers separating parts 1 and 2.)
>Sorry to jump in, but I'll express a concern: spoilers.
I mean, were spoilers ever that big of a concern anyway? The article already tells the entire story, right? I've seen multiple wikis spoil a movie or book accompanied by pictures multiple times.
>I also think limiting the pages to 12 images is maybe too strict and will be horrible unending agony to enforce.
I could probably change that. Now that you mention it, I don't think I'm gonna do that anymore.
>(Also, upon review, I disagree with Andrew's decision to remove the headers separating parts 1 and 2.)
I don't understand what you're trying to say. I hopped on over to the Deep Trouble page to see what you were talking about, and I noticed the file names had, "Part 1" and "Part 2" in them. The file names for my screenshots are gonna be like this, "(S1E1) The Haunted Mask - 1.png". If the episode was 2 parts, then I'd simply just change the episode number in the file. So, does this count as separting them? If this isn't what you're talking about, then I just spent way too long typing this all out.
Maybe my assessment was glib. (Honestly, I could probably be swayed on the matter.) I'm only unhappy when it feels like the creators are just trying to pat themselves on the back or win brownie points. I'd be more inclined to give IDW the benefit of the doubt if the stories and art were consistently good.
I have reviews that go into more detail into my thoughts on the first two, I'll get to Witch House in about November or so since I've only skimmed it so far. Short version is I do like them, the frst one just logic issues you just kinda expect from this series and the other had a bit too much going on. I love Keith but even he felt a bit tacked on. I've got a lot respct for the crew on those and eeven including things like Keith, alongside the nifty representation. This case didn't feel brownie point-y since it's not intrisuve and the crew is actually generally in the communites represented. (Hope my joke was funny, you kinda hit a beserk button for me lol)
And Mike is right, what they did to Night of the living dummy was inexusable lol. Although for me it was mainly Jelly Jam , Dummy and Abominble Snowman to a lesser extent that bugged me, the rest looked fine to pretty good, Shock Street easily looked the best, and Scarecrow had some creepy moments, almost tooks too realastic for Goosebumps though.
K? K what? The letter before L? The letter after J? Did you know that in JK the K stands for “kidding?” So your reply is “kidding?” or K as in Potassium? Do you need some Special K for breakfast? K as in I can K/O you? Can I knock you out and feed you to hungry sharks? Sharks have a K in it. "K"? Are you *SALPY* kidding me? I spent a decent portion of my life writing all of that and your response to me is "K"? Are you so mentally handicapped that the only letter you can comprehend is "K" - or are you just some *SALPY THE DUM* who thinks that with such a short response, he can make a statement about how meaningless what was written was? Well, I'll have you know that what I wrote was NOT meaningless, in fact, I even had my written work proof-read by several professors of literature. Don't believe me? I doubt you would, and your response to this will probably be "K" once again. Do I give a *SALP*? No, does it look like I give even the slightest *SALP* about a single letter? I bet you took the time to type that one letter too, I bet you sat there and chuckled to yourself for 20 hearty seconds before pressing "send". You're so *SALPY* pathetic. I'm honestly considering directing you to a psychiatrist, but I'm simply far too nice to do something like that. You, however, will go out of your way to make a fool out of someone by responding to a well-thought-out, intelligent, or humorous statement that probably took longer to write than you can last in *SALPY* with a chimpanzee. What do I have to say to you? Absolutely nothing. I couldn't be bothered to respond to such a worthless attempt at a response. Do you want "K" on your gravestone? Do you want people to remember you as the *SALP*hat who one day decided to respond to someone with a single letter? "Hey, look, everybody! It's that "K" guy!" That's who you are. You're going to be known as the "K" guy. How does it feel? Do you feel happy? Quite honestly, I don't care, which is why I'm not even going to respond to you. Goodbye, and good luck with your future as that guy who said "K". Alright listen up *DUMMY*, and get your comfy seat because we're gonna be here a while. Do you really think you can just get away with "k" as a message? What if someone did that to you, huh? Do you think you would like it? Making an entire paragraph to get a *SALPY* one letter response of the tenth letter in the alphabet, you think that's *SALPING* funny, *DUMMY*? Do you want your crush to respond back with "k" after you spill your feelings out like this? (Take me back, Emma.) Huh? What if I did it to you? k. Did you like that? What, did you just peed in your pants because someone disregarded your entire effort of writing this ENTIRE paragraph FROM HAND in about fifteen minutes? That just makes me feel *SALPIED* rejected just like my ex. (Take me back, Roxanne.) k. What're you, *A DUMMY*? Can I have a response that actually MEANS something instead of just *SALPPING* our "conversation" with the spam of "k?" Now occasionally with questions or something it's reasonable, but doing it to any *SALPY* response they say. "We're having a nuclear crisis, you have fifteen minutes to evacuate." You're the type of person that would say "k" to that, you *SALPY* hypocrite. You think you can get away with this, right? You think it's SOOOOOO funny to do this *SALP*, but I can guarantee that you'll be taken out back and shot soon. You're *SALPY* dead, "k"iddo.
Took me a few minutes to remove all the swearing but it was worth it
The IDW comics are pretty not great with diversity. They've got fleshed out, good LGBT and PoC characters, but they've so obviously been shoehorned in. However, it is nice to see at least one LGBT character in the entirety of Stine's writing, even though Stine has no part in the comics (and also if I remember correctly, according to Troy Steele's blog, aren't there only 3 characters, none of them protagonists, who are PoC in the series?)
also also, Scarecrow Walks at Midnight and the Werewolf of Fever Swamp comics are GOLD, everything else isn't great
I'm only reopening this thread because I noticed something tangentially related to the original category-of-discussion.
>While she was preparing things, Mrs. Dark caught her turning her into a demon. [...] She also admitted that she has had feelings for Ellie ever since she arrived. Ellie shared these feelings and the two fell in love, starting to go on scares together.
If you want to link something to a certain page, please create the page first; otherwise, it could lead to several misunderstandings. I don't read the IDW comics, so I don't know anything about that character. Feel free to create a page, as long as the character deserves one.
I am trying to create a new page. I've made many new pages in the past, and have always worked from a visual editor. When I click Add Page now, though, it makes me work with Fandom's coding. How do I get to the visual editor? How do I add a character sidebox in the Fandom editor? (I know how to do it from the visual editor.)
Try checking your preferences. Make sure you selected the visual editor and not the source one.
I created a test page (then deleted it), and it started up with the classic editor. I'm sorry, but I can't really help when it comes with the visual editor. I never use it. I mostly use the source and classic editor. If you want, tell me what page you're trying to create and I'll create it as a "template". Then (I'm hoping) you could use the visual editor and edit it.
Thanks but that did not work. I changed my preference to Visual Editor and it still makes me use the source editor when creating a page. This particular Wiki did not used to be like that. Someone changed it.
Hey! I was reading your comment on Retro's post about people buying physical books and not reading them, keeping them from people who might want to read them. I think most of the series is available digitally now. I have all of the original 62 on my kindle except for Mask of the Mutant which has not shown up yet. I'm going to have to read it physically. I thought about hitting up thrift stores, but decided to support the author and publisher so Stine will keep working. The books were like $4. It wasn't bad. I bought all of them, Fear Street, and Animorphs digitally.
Hi. I DID have all the GB ebooks (except for The Haunter and some Series 2000 ones). You buy the ebooks. That's legal. I... am less legal. I've read most of the books as ebooks before even starting my collection, but I always prefer a physical copy. I don't just collect books and have them sit there. The particular person I was alluding to is the guy who runs the ZakBabyTV channel. He has a MASSIVE collection, but does he really need all those duplicates and reprints? At the end of the day, a book is still a book with one purpose: to be read. What irks me more is that he buys the original print and every other reprint. In a couple of videos, he mentioned not reading a lot of the books he has (and he doesn't plan to).
I have a few duplicates too, but I plan on selling them at some point. They're usually the result of me buying a book, then getting a boxed set which includes that book later on. Ok, I think I'm deviating from the original point...
In conclusion, I only buy the GB books I'm interested in, which is why I'm avoiding series like GB Presents and the IDW comics. If an ebook or an audiobook is available (for free on TOTALLY legal sites), I'd go for that then find myself a physical copy later. My response is so messed up, I don't even think it's related to your message.
TL:DR: I'm a collector, but I read the books I collect (several times).
So about your tons of idiots on those charecter pages recently, I feell ike captilizaing "information' just looks better in this context, with it being the proper name of a section.IDk, it just looks better to me.
Slappy clearly served as the lesser of two evils in that book. The trivia section on that page lampshades he's an anti-hero in that book. The kdis bring him alive to stop Arrogoutus and he attempts to do so with the kids helping him through the fight. The villains wiki and tv tropes call him an anti-hero in that book.
Oh, crap. I thought you were talking about something else. There's a problem with the wiki css, which is why some stuff aren't working here temporarily (colors, backgrounds, spinning text). I contacted GbA about it.
Hey, I wanted to clarify my edit to the Go Eat Worms TV page. I just read the book and watched the episode today- the underground cave part was all new. In the book, he starts to get pulled in the crack in the field, and like the show, is saved by his sister carrying her bird. In the book, he never promises to not harm worms as well. As a side note, thought I enjoyed this more as a kid, but boy, what a stinker.
