Oh...

Wow i've stranded way too long, 1000 editions in two weeks!? You're pro man!.

The life's been a butthurt for me lately and i've been barely online. Congrats on your approval for the ICG!

Haha, yeah I have a lot of free time since it's summer vacation :P. Thanks! ~Bobogoobo (talk new) | 18:09, July 13, 2012

Wording

While it is indeed good to use words with a larger meaning to get a point across, the general thought on this wiki is readability. I consider myself fairly well read, and I've never seen that word used anywhere before. If I have to go search a word on Wikipedia because it is seldom used, then it doesn't do the best for readability. Sometimes it's better to use more, simpler words to describe something rather than one large word for obvious reasons. Especially when you consider the age of a large amount of users on this wiki, as well as the target audience of the show. Also, generally it isn't good practice to undo an edit undoing something else unless it is blatantly wrong. Please take it to talk pages to be discussed before undoing an edit undoing something previously.  Food 25px-Surprise.png  04:46, July 14, 2012 (UTC)

Sorry about undoing your edit, but it felt justified. I've been seeing the word for quite a while, and it is used at least a few times on this wiki (using the search box returns several matches). I'd rather give readers a new addition to their vocabulary than use a less descriptive word. It also has a slightly different meaning than what was previously on the page did, and I think it sounds better now (with the addition of my other changes). ~Bobogoobo (talk new) | 04:52, July 14, 2012

response to message

sorry about that!! i'll be sure to never let it happen again!

Rarity235 06:53, July 19, 2012 (UTC)

ok

yeah it makes better sense if it was properly fixed. I just got to watch the episode again.

Orion001 (talk) 02:49, July 23, 2012 (UTC)

It was an issue of grammar more than anything else. Sentences get awkward with too many commas. ~Bobogoobo (talk new) | 02:50, July 23, 2012 (UTC)

Page unprotection

I saw you left the comment about page unprotection when deleting File:2012-06 slider 02 Fluttershy SE2EP22.png and File:2012-06 slider 03 Scootaloo SE2EP8.png. What page needs to be unprotected and why? If you have a problem or a request please contact an admin, because not everyone pays attention to those comments in the deletion/rename reason. Teyandee (Talk) 16:55, July 24, 2012 (UTC)

Looks like it automatically was undone when the files were deleted, as I don't see those pages in protection lists anymore. But anyway, those files needed to be unprotected because there was no reason for them to remain protected anymore. And I didn't bother an admin because it wasn't really a major issue. ~Bobogoobo (talk new) | 01:31, July 25, 2012 (UTC)
Did you manage to delete protected images? We may have to look into this issue, as deleting protected images should be an admin-only privilege. Teyandee (Talk) 03:42, July 25, 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, it let me do that. I think deletion rights always override protection. ~Bobogoobo (talk new) | 03:46, July 25, 2012 (UTC)

[Reply]

Sorry, I was not aware such edits weren't allowed on the wiki. I shall endeavor to make more substantial edits in the future.

Neverhoodian (talk) 06:06, July 25, 2012 (UTC)

It's not that they're not allowed, just that there are much more productive ways to get the badges. Some people might get annoyed at a series of contributions just adding periods to captions, and it doesn't take too much extra effort to add a new one or whatever. ~Bobogoobo (talk new) | 06:09, July 25, 2012 (UTC)

Deleting images

Please pay attention to the logos on the images you are about to delete. File:SourTwilight S01E23.png is a 1280*720 px logoless image while File:Twilight huh S01E23.png is only 640*360 px and has a logo. Why did you delet the higher quality logoless image? Teyandee (Talk) 08:04, July 28, 2012 (UTC)

Well, I deleted the one that was the duplicate and figured I could reupload the original later if necessary. Wasn't sure how best to handle the situation. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 08:09, July 28, 2012 (UTC)
I suppose that logoless higher quality version are more preferable than the lower quality images with logo. Teyandee (Talk) 08:16, July 28, 2012 (UTC)
Okay, I'll keep that in mind, thanks. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 08:18, July 28, 2012 (UTC)

File:Pinkie Pie muddy puffy cheeks promotional S2E01.jpg

I disagree with the deletion of this file. It was a 2 048px × 1 152px logoless file and now we have 1,280 × 720 px file. I think we should keep the better version - the promotional image. Teyandee (Talk) 17:43, August 2, 2012 (UTC)

My understanding of this is that MLP FIM was produced natively at 720p (1280x720). Any image larger than that is scaled from the native resolution, and therefore lower quality than the native resolution.  Food 25px-Surprise.png  21:43, August 2, 2012 (UTC)
My thoughts were that as a promotional image, it should be kept separate and didn't belong in galleries that use images from the show. And when most images are displayed at about 150x115, I don't think having things larger than 1280x720 is all that important. So since it looked the same as a snapshot of the show, I deleted it. Food's point is a good one as well. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 02:04, August 3, 2012 (UTC)
Actually, we don`t know if it was upscaled. This image may have created as a Vector and saved as a .jpg. Can you say it ha a lower quality than File:Twilight and Luna S2E04.png? I don't feel right to delete those big promo images. Teyandee (Talk) 02:25, August 3, 2012 (UTC)

Image renaming

Per 'can be fixed on the blog that links to it later)': After moving the image, please update the file name in all articles that used this picture. If you can't do that (like in this case - image control group members can`t edit the blogs) please ask an admin to edit the blog. Teyandee (Talk) 18:04, August 4, 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, I know, kind of annoying that I can't edit comments and blogs myself for stuff like that. Wasn't sure who to bother but I figured someone would see it eventually from Special:WantedFiles if nowhere else. Usually I leave them alone in those cases but I moved that one since it was used on the episode and character galleries and I was already working on it. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 18:08, August 4, 2012 (UTC)
Neither you, nor other image group control members can edit the blog as they don`t have this right. Considering Special:WantedFiles - I don` t know who and how often checks it. Please ask any admin to update the blog posts as we need to do the rename and update procedure fully. Teyandee (Talk) 18:19, August 4, 2012 (UTC)

New rights for image control group

Wikia staff have given 2 new rights for the group:

  • Deleting blog articles
  • Editing blog articles - use it for updating the files names after renaming images. Teyandee (Talk) 18:23, August 6, 2012 (UTC)

This edit by Lyra Botstrings

Just curious, but what actually changed in this edit? Hah.  Food 25px-Surprise.png  15:29, August 19, 2012 (UTC)

There was an extra space at the end of the line. I figured I might as well save it, why not :P. Reduces page size (though negligibly) and those extra spaces are one of many things I like to get rid of/fix. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 15:32, August 19, 2012 (UTC)
Ahh, that's what I thought it was. The space doesn't appear in the diff when highlighted apparently, heh.  Food 25px-Surprise.png  15:35, August 19, 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, probably hidden as multiple whitespace. That's why I like how AWB highlights spaces, they're much easier to see. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 15:37, August 19, 2012 (UTC)

¡It’s About Time!

Like, I wrote, I give up. The problem is that every time somepony puts in any images of the closed timelike curve closing, some other pony deletes the duplicated images. As it is, on the gallery, no indication exists of when the future projects into the past. Certainly, we do not need complete duplication. That was not mine intention anyway:

  1. Duplicate the sections.
  2. Trim the sections so that no 2 images exist in both sections.

That way, ponies viewing the gallery could tell that Twilight Sparkle travels back to the past, and when she does so on Tuesday.

Anyway, I give up.

76.103.108.158 21:40, August 24, 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, it's already been agreed that the images shouldn't be duplicated in any manner, so that's why they keep getting removed. I'll see if I can improve the situation - later today I'll look for some unique frames around the time when Twilight goes back in time and add them to the gallery so that it's obvious when it happens. Actually, I just watched that part again, and it looks like there's a lot that can be added. It should be pretty easy to make it obvious when it occurs, especially if I add some descriptive captions as well. So this should fix the situation pretty well. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 03:04, August 25, 2012 (UTC)

[Re: Renaming pages]

Yeah, sorry about that. Any page that's been here so long probably wouldn't have any typos in the name. I'll just leave the rename button alone. Sorry. Star-8thNote-interrobang (talk) 01:59, September 9, 2012 (UTC)Star-8thNote-Interrobang

It's okay, and thank you for trying to help. It's just that most things on the wiki are regulated so it's best to have a discussion before renaming a page. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 02:04, September 9, 2012 (UTC)

Commenting autofiltered out?

I'm trying to post a comment reply on the Rainbow Dash article (pointing out that "Clip Clop" also has a 6-colored mane and tail), but it won't let me post (even if I try posting a new comment with totally different contents) despite other users continuing to post, as if it's automatically filtering out my attempts for some reason. Did something go wrong there, or was it me who did something wrong? 76.9.65.13 01:15, September 12, 2012 (UTC)

Ah, it was probably because the page was semiprotected. It should work now. I also just remembered Holly Dash, which is another good example of a background pony with a multicolored mane. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 01:20, September 12, 2012 (UTC)
I tried a few more times to reply, and it still won't post. 76.9.65.13 01:37, September 12, 2012 (UTC)
Actually, an anon posted a comment just yesterday, so that wasn't the issue. Probably a Wikia bug; it's happened to me sometimes. Have you tried a full refresh or using different browsers? ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 01:40, September 12, 2012 (UTC)
Refreshing and using a different browser didn't work, but I just tried posting again, and this time it did work! I dunno if unprotecting the article had anything to do with it, but thanks for your help either way! 76.9.65.13 02:02, September 12, 2012 (UTC)
Well, I reprotected it after my last message, so it would be strange if that helped it, but I'm glad it worked out. :) ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 02:04, September 12, 2012 (UTC)

[Zecora page]

Thanks for fixing my errors on the Zecora page. I guess my spelling and grammar are far from perfect.

Xamrin (talk) 02:41, September 12, 2012 (UTC)

No problem. One of the biggest issues was just that we always write about things that happen in episodes in the present tense, which you might not have known. Thanks for adding to the page! ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 02:46, September 12, 2012 (UTC)

About Images

Ok, I think I found a better source for pictures. I'm using some 1080p YouTube videos. --MetalSparkle (talk) 06:15, September 12, 2012 (UTC)

Okay, thanks, just be aware that anything less than the 720p iTunes versions will likely be replaced by one in the future. The one you uploaded today is certainly higher quality, though; looks pretty good. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 20:55, September 12, 2012 (UTC)

[Posting images into different galleries]

Hey Man. Is it ok if I get the pics from different galleries and place them into another gallery?

Yep, like Jonny said: as long as they belong there, that's very helpful. Just make sure they're in the right order. Thanks! ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 20:55, September 12, 2012 (UTC)
