Series 2 trading cards' name reformattings

Re: this: I think so. Series 2 has also given us:

  • "Fancy Pants" instead of "Fancypants" (already brought up on his article, but photos here finally confirm that the two-word spelling does indeed have a trademark symbol)
  • "Auntie Applesauce" instead of "Aunt Applesauce" ("Aunt" is the word listed in the credits of Apple Family Reunion, but "Auntie" is the word spoken in the episode itself)
  • "Stinkin' Rich" instead of "Stinking Rich" (I dunno which one the closed captions for Family Appreciation Day use, but this definitely takes precedence over that)
  • "The Olden Pony" (with all three first letters capitalized like that) instead of just "Olden Pony" (and by extension, being another case of formatting in consistency, "The Headless Horse" instead of just "Headless Horse") 07:30, April 21, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the reformatting work! On the subject of changing links by automatic means, would those means be usable to update (purge, null edit, whatever it is) all pages that include Template:Supporting characters? Then Special:WhatLinksHere/Fancypants and Special:WhatLinksHere/Gustave Le Grand would only list pages that actually include links that use the old spellings (I tried the "Hide transclusions" filter, but it didn't help with that). 10:54, April 21, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for taking care of that; I took care of others, except on the protected pages Characters and List of ponies (the latter of which I'm guessing would just take a purge/null edit). 12:25, April 21, 2013 (UTC)

And thanks again for taking care of those two protected pages. 23:37, April 22, 2013 (UTC)

Night Mare (Moon)

Re: Nightmare Moon: I tried to list sources I've found for "Night Mare Moon" (and "Night Mare") here, but the abuse filter blocked it as common vandalism. If you watch to see if it blocks me from editing and unblock me if it does, I can try to post things part by part and tweak whichever stuff it won't allow. 23:37, April 22, 2013 (UTC)

I tried looking at it but I don't see anything obvious. Go ahead, I'll keep an eye on it. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 00:03, April 23, 2013 (UTC)
Okay, I'll start with my next post here: 00:12, April 23, 2013 (UTC)
I think that "Night Mare Moon" and "Night Mare" are worth noting, but since only "Nightmare Moon" has been listed with a trademark symbol, and in both the toys and the trading cards, I think that "Nightmare Moon" should be up in the lead section while "Night Mare Moon" as well as "Night Mare" should be down in the "Development and character design" section. 00:24, April 23, 2013 (UTC)
Done posting 'em now (I wonder why the filter blocked the URL gibberish but was fine with much more URL gibberish...) 00:26, April 23, 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, your suggestion sounds good to me. I dunno, I can't exactly read regex but maybe it was the repeated "A" (test: AAAAAAAAG); if not that, I guess some accidental combination of characters. Anyway, thanks as always! ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 00:48, April 23, 2013 (UTC)
You're welcome, and thank you for helping me be able to post! 00:54, April 23, 2013 (UTC)

A little request

There is one thing I need help with and only someone from outside of Europe could do so.

Do you see this countdown timer? It's set to count until May 20th 2013 7:55PM. It's intended to count until 7:55PM, but of course for CEST time, but I don't know, how people from other timezones see this.

Could you tell me what time you see it's counting towards (and what time is where you live/set on your computer). Vengir (talk) 06:11, April 26, 2013 (UTC)

It's counting towards the time you said; I'm in Eastern Time, currently UTC-4, so right now it's 2:13 AM on 4/26. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 06:12, April 26, 2013 (UTC)
I mean: Is it counting towards 7:55PM CEST or 7:55PM EDT for you? Vengir (talk) 06:18, April 26, 2013 (UTC)
Ah, EDT. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 06:19, April 26, 2013 (UTC)
That's what I was afraid of. I guess I'll have to make some modification before this can be used for S4 on this wiki (once we know the release date). Thanks anyway. Vengir (talk) 06:23, April 26, 2013 (UTC)

Ok, I think I've fixed it! Could you look at it again? Vengir (talk) 07:03, April 26, 2013 (UTC)

Yep, it's correct now (1:55 PM 5/20/13 UTC-4). ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 07:29, April 26, 2013 (UTC)
Great! Thank you very much. Vengir (talk) 07:31, April 26, 2013 (UTC)

Title of trade paperback

Re: This: Its copyright page, showing its official title, is included in Amazon's Look Inside preview of it. 07:40, April 26, 2013 (UTC)

Ah, interesting, thanks. I need to look at those previews more. I think I'd actually prefer to leave it how it is for the time being, though, since it was used the way I put in at least two sources and the book doesn't tell us whether the "is" is capitalized. Just my feeling on it. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 08:01, April 26, 2013 (UTC)
I think the title used in the preview should take precedence since it's part of the book, though the other title may indeed be worth noting after that. As for whether the "is" is capitalized, I'd assume it's not, judging by the three instances of "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic" on the "IDWords" page at the end of the first issue in that series. 08:20, April 26, 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, good point. I didn't want to assume too much about the title, but I guess it should be fine to go from that previous evidence until we get anything more concrete directly from IDW. Guess I'll wait for an Amazon preview of the "Color Me" thing (if they will have one) to get the official title of that too. Anyway, not sure the alternate title is worth mentioning unless IDW uses it directly somewhere. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 08:42, April 26, 2013 (UTC)

Help pages

Since I noticed you said this in your edit summary, I figured I should tell you that you can in fact edit the transcluded page on Wikia central if you want :P (if you didn't know already)  FANMADE_Animated_Derpy_Hooves_desktop_ponies_sprite.gif Sig1.png Sig2.png  13:06, April 26, 2013 (UTC)

Ah, I knew that, I wasn't referring to the content. Was more complaining about how the software acts like those pages don't exist in most cases even when there is content that will show up in them. Not a big deal though. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 20:51, April 26, 2013 (UTC)

Re: Comic images

Aww :(.  Oh well; do what you gotta do I suppose.  If I find better PGN's of other previews, I'll upload those instead, but thanks for informing me.  It'll help later when I try to do stuff like this again.

Dragon Theology (talk) 00:21, April 27, 2013 (UTC)Dragon Theology

I just downloaded all the PDFs from here. To save a page, you click a page (since it's in the PDF as an image), copy it, paste into your image editor of choice, and save as PNG. Each editor will have a different level of compression (or ask you for one), and I found Microsoft Paint's to be acceptable, since complete lack of compression isn't really necessary. I'm planning on finishing all of the issues as soon as possible. But yeah, in general, pngs are always preferable -- if you're familiar with audio encoding, it's analogous to the difference between FLAC and MP3. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 00:36, April 27, 2013 (UTC)

Sorry Bout That

Derpin a bit today huh XD.  Alright got it.

Dragon Theology (talk) 01:25, April 27, 2013 (UTC)Dragon Theology

No worries, and sorry for leaving you so many messages. I only notice because I'm going crazy on looking at all the changes again because I get OCD about fixing things. Also, usually we leave replies at the place where the discussion originated, in this case your talk page, to make keeping track of them easier. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 01:27, April 27, 2013 (UTC)

One more?

Since you took care of a bunch of file renaming (thanks for that, by the way), I thought I should point out File:FANMADE Vinyl Scratch Saxophone (which used to also be marked for renaming). 11:49, April 30, 2013 (UTC)

Done, thanks (silly Juan, good enough is not good enough :P). And my pleasure. I needed some way of reaching my stay-up-later-than-I-ought-to-while-continuing-to-avoid-homework quota, after all. I figured renaming a few images wouldn't take as long as doing some of the comic pages. Seems I underestimated how many "a few" is. And now time for bed before I ramble your ears (eyes?) off :P. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 11:55, April 30, 2013 (UTC)


hey Bobogoobo! i just wanted to say sorry for all the comments that i shouldnt have posted... ill stop doing that now. :) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Applejack88 (talkcontribs) 09:05, 1 May 2013‎

Thanks. As long as they're related to MLP, it's fine to post as long as you find a page they are relevant to. Otherwise, another place would be better to have discussions. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 22:48, May 1, 2013 (UTC)

Line breaks!

And thanks for the advice!  That'll help alot on some of these pages XD

Dragon Theology (talk) 03:37, May 6, 2013 (UTC)

Octavia Melody

Thanks for taking care of Octavia Melody stuff yesterday! Could you please use automatic means to update (purge, null edit, whatever it is) the protected page List of ponies and all pages that include Template:Background characters, like you did for supporting characters before? 03:54, May 6, 2013 (UTC)

Yep, done. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 04:16, May 6, 2013 (UTC)
Thanks; I've now taken care of other links. 04:26, May 6, 2013 (UTC)

About the issue

For 95 % of the time I do leave a message to the user's talkpage if they have multiple images that need to be renamed but yesterday's case was someone that was in the chat during the same time as me, so I could give them advice there, outside the talkpage.

Ps. Thanks for the tip, I'll use the queue function from now on if there are more than a few images.

Yours truly:  Federal_Republic_of_Ocredan.pngOcredan Ocredanian_Flag1.png 06:20, May 6, 2013 (UTC)

Reply From the Message On my Wall

Hi Bobogoobo, Thank you for giving me heads up on the images. Did you remove them or are you just telling me that for future references because I do not exactly know what you mean by higher sources. real-rainbow-dash.png Gummygugugaga talkrainbow_dash_cutie_mark_icon_free_by_aoxis-d514sgo.gif

Just for reference, they're still there. We can improve them later since they're png. The minimum best quality is 720p (the images will come out 1280x720, and they also look a lot better), and you can get sources from various sites of varying legality, then take screenshot by these procedures. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 21:39, May 6, 2013 (UTC)
Ok, thank you for informing me, have a good day.  real-rainbow-dash.png Gummygugugaga talkrainbow_dash_cutie_mark_icon_free_by_aoxis-d514sgo.gif

Duplicate images

Since I am no longer an active Wikia editor, I want to let other contributors to continue my project on searching and deleting the duplicate images. I will create a forum topic about it, but I need someone to copy the list (User:Teyandee/Sandbox/Duplicate images) to his/her own user subpage. Can you copy it? Teyandee (Talk) 18:19, May 10, 2013 (UTC)

I think we could just leave it where it is or put it on a forum directly, like I've put other lists. Maybe a project page if necessary. I think we would need a better algorithm anyway, because even the ones at the top of the list you have are sufficiently different to be kept, I think. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 21:05, May 10, 2013 (UTC)
Adding the list directly to the forum topic would overwhelm it. Leaving the list on my subpage isn`t good also. Most people do not like to edit other person`s personal pages. Plus, I do not want my subpage to be the source for the red links. I have to make this list publicly available. For example, I can add the page to the "Project:" namespace. Teyandee (Talk) 06:10, May 11, 2013 (UTC)
Not really, if the sole purpose of the forum was that list. How would someone else's userpage be different from yours? Anyway, how about putting it on Project:Duplicate images under a new heading at the top of the page, and putting the automated search under a new heading below it? ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 06:14, May 11, 2013 (UTC)
Some people may find it impolite to edit other contributor`s personal pages (such as subpages in "User:" namespace). Unless the contributor states, that he or she allow everyone to edit his or her personal page, people will be, most probably, avoid changing that page.
I can leave the list where it is and allow everyone to edit it. In that case I want to be sure. that broken links will be removed from the list as soon as the file will be deleted or renamed. I would not like my page to be the source of red links. Teyandee (Talk) 07:31, May 11, 2013 (UTC)
That works if you prefer it, though it seems a little troublesome to edit it for every file that may be moved or deleted. I can just write a program for it and run it periodically. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 07:44, May 11, 2013 (UTC)
Agreed, there is no much need to clean the list after each file movement or deletion. I think you can run the program each 2 or 3 days. Teyandee (Talk) 12:17, May 11, 2013 (UTC)

Renaming images

I may have missed something, but I find I can't rename images anymore (at least, not conventionally). Clicking "Rename" on the file page gets me a permissions error, and I have no idea how to work the image link updating queue (if that's even how I go about doing it). Help? ImperfectXIII (talk) 00:57, May 12, 2013 (UTC)

Oopsie, I apologize. Imagecontrol was inadvertently broken by a change we made to user rights. I've contacted Wikia so hopefully it'll be fixed soon. (I don't think they're open on weekends, though.) The queue still wouldn't work since you don't have the permissions, but I can explain it for future reference if you like. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 01:22, May 12, 2013 (UTC)
It's cool. After actually bothering to look at the forums, I pretty much found out about this on my own. It's not a problem. As for the queue, if you wouldn't mind explaining it on my talk page, that'd be great. ImperfectXIII (talk) 01:29, May 12, 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, I didn't see the forum until after this :P. And actually, the image link update gadget puts instructions on the file rename page, so once you can access it check that out and see if that tells you how to use it. If not, let me know and we can update the explanation to make it more helpful. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 02:04, May 12, 2013 (UTC)


Yeah, I'll use it. I forgot about the queue and I will use it when moving pages. — Jr Mime (talk) 19:58, May 14, 2013 (UTC)

Yes, will do. All those fluttershy images are from Cod4, who was a nub back then. I told, via chat, about the guy uploading the G5 images. Thanks for telling me, — Jr Mime (talk) 22:37, May 14, 2013 (UTC)

UU files

Sorry if I missed some links. I had some complications on those files when I was moving them. Most of them are on a sysops only page, so I had to get Ozank to unblock it. It seems that it also missed some other pages. Thanks, — Jr Mime (talk) 01:10, May 16, 2013 (UTC)

Yeah, I saw that, not sure why it missed a few on list of ponies pages. Oh well. Thanks. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 01:16, May 16, 2013 (UTC)

Question Concerning Cutie Marks

I've noticed how you said clear backgrounds are generally a sign of fanmade was being transparent.  So does this have an official link to it and if so, where was it found?  I would like to know since I feel that each character should have their respective cutie mark on their page. MYvPRBp.gif Meet Your Overlord Discuss Read AdmirenoSKLSS.gif03:23, May 18, 2013 (UTC)

That's from Adventures in Ponyville; the uploader extracted it from the game file. I couldn't remember if all such files were transparent, but I guess that would be the exception. If you use Firefox, you can get the Google Search by Image add-on to try to find image sources. (It's just a shortcut for the icon in the Google search bar for images.) For that image, you can see that our version of the file precedes others, though it would indeed require additional knowledge to know that it was taken from the game file. And I agree, it would be great to have a cutie mark image for everypony, but some of them just don't have any decent official source. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 03:39, May 18, 2013 (UTC)
This user decompiled official flash games like that and (actually, I can't remember any more off the top of my head, lol) and extracted the transparent background cutie marks, among other assets (those cutie marks, of course, can be found in this gallery. And yeah, unfortunately, unless Hasbro (or the Hub, I guess) decides to include some cutie marks in the assets of future flash games they release for FiM, square crops of the cutie mark and the area of the flank surrounding it are the best official source that can be gotten, though for some, it seems, there's just no good shot to crop from. -- This is Jonny Manz, signing off! 03:45, May 18, 2013 (UTC)
Well That sucks :/. Oh well, I'll just see about cropping them. My problem is getting the color to match the color of the colors of the background where the cutie marks go since some don't match completely. Did you guys edit the background of the cropped photos or did it just happen to match perfectly, cause Lemon's doesn't match the info box color scheme. Sorry if I'm being annoying with this; it just kind of urks me that some have cutie marks up and others don't XD.
MYvPRBp.gif Meet Your Overlord Discuss Read AdmirenoSKLSS.gif04:00, May 18, 2013 (UTC)
Matching the colors isn't really necessary. It's probably due to differences in sources (amount of saturation/"color correction", etc.), and since there's no "official" coloration level, the colors are just guesses to some degree. I suppose you can change it to match yours as long as it isn't drastically different, if you like. I don't edit my screenshots. And no problem, you're not annoying :P. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 04:05, May 18, 2013 (UTC)
Well I'm kind of a Twilight when it comes down to matching/organization and stuff XD. But if you say matching it doesn't matter...I know what I'm doing tomorrow afternoon :3
MYvPRBp.gif Meet Your Overlord Discuss Read AdmirenoSKLSS.gif04:20, May 18, 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, it's perfectly fine to change the "headercolor" parameter for the infobox so that matches up with the color of the pony's coat surrounding the cutie mark, since between sources, it's only a slight difference in color or shade of color anyway. -- This is Jonny Manz, signing off! 06:33, May 18, 2013 (UTC)

Some reuploaded images

Happened to notice these, and figured I should point 'em out somewhere:

  • File:FANMADE P1010310.JPG & File:FANMADE Alicorn Fluttershy.JPG
  • File:FANMADE P1010026.JPG & File:FANMADE Alicorn Rainbow Dash.JPG
  • File:FANMADE P1010063.JPG & File:FANMADE Alicorn Reaction.JPG
  • File:FANMADE 043.JPG & File:FANMADE alicorn Twilight.JPG
  • File:FANMADE P1000985.JPG & File:FANMADE Applebuck Season.JPG

The new uploads don't always have the same file size as the old uploads, so I dunno if there's any quality difference in those cases. 03:15, May 20, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks, looks like the user replaced those files on her talk page, so I'll just wait until tomorrow when they're all on UnusedFiles so I can grab them easily. For fanmade images I don't really care about the quality :P ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 03:19, May 20, 2013 (UTC)

The edit war between me and Galahanu

I realize that if both of us don't stop it the two of us will get blocked, so l am trying to stop this right now.--Daipenmon (talk) 14:36, May 21, 2013 (UTC)

I protected the page and replied on your talk page. Hopefully that'll resolve it. Try not to get into edit wars in the first place; if someone's doing something that's against the rules, just leave it and report it to an admin so they can take care of it. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 14:38, May 21, 2013 (UTC)
I did not break any rules.  I simply left a message on a talk page. THE DOCTOR WILL SEE YOU NOW! 14:43, May 21, 2013 (UTC)
But you don't realize that removing talk page messages is breaking the rules and is not allowed.--Daipenmon (talk) 14:46, May 21, 2013 (UTC)
Please keep the conversation in one place. And yes, leaving a message is okay, but removing other users' messages is not and neither is edit warring. Now you know, and as long as you don't do it again, there's no issue. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 14:47, May 21, 2013 (UTC)

Home media tables

Re: This: That row's for one of the two discs covered on the fourth line (between the 44 Min DVD and Adventures in Ponyville) in the "Early and promotional variants" section. I'm not sure how a template should be, but I have thought that those tables should be improved; one thing I have in mind is that it'd be more accurate to alphabetize by the full titles (rather than excluding "My Little Pony Friendship is Magic: " and other such first parts). 06:09, May 23, 2013 (UTC)

Re: This: That Collector's Box includes Friendship Changes Everything (the DVD on the left), a set of six cards featuring the main six ponies, and a varying Playful Ponies toy.

My Little Pony Equestria Girls

Hello Bobogoobo. I will ask this one more time. What is My Little Pony Equestria Girls rated? 18:31, May 25, 2013 (UTC)

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say G. The R thing was a mistake, if it wasn't obvious. I don't think MLP would contain anything that could give it even a PG rating. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 19:00, May 25, 2013 (UTC)
Movie website like this show it is rated G. When will Amazon fix that mistake and change it to a G. They also need to remove all those review that are fake and are full of lies. They are trolls review. They was made by trolls. 19:26, May 25, 2013 (UTC)
I don't know. Have you contacted Amazon to get them to correct the mistake? I don't know if the reviews are trolls, they may just be people being humorous. I didn't see anything offensive in them, since most people should know that MLP is a kids' show. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 19:29, May 25, 2013 (UTC)

Most of these questions can be answered with "obviously" or "I don't know". I'm not very interested in speculation and most of the factual things you can find answers to elsewhere. I don't know much about Japan. I'd suggesting asking things like these somewhere where people could give you good answers. And probably not all at once. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 18:12, May 26, 2013 (UTC)

What's up?

Hi Bobogoobo, I think I'm finally back! I still have to catch up with watching the last 5-6 episodes (yep, that's how busy I was). Other than that, are there any major changes that I've missed? I saw that there's some article workshop thing now, and most of the bad file names have been fixed. Steph physarum (talk) FANMADE_Octavia_by_the_fireside.png 15:29, May 26, 2013 (UTC)

Well, right now there's a forum where non-720p images wait for us to upgrade them to 720p logoless. Apart from that I know nothing. The Americanized Brony15:42, May 26, 2013 (UTC)
Good to hear, welcome back! You can look at all the stickied forums, there's what Juan mentioned plus one I made for synchronizing categories and gallery usage, not sure if I already told you about those. There have been a few other changes to policies too, such as the location gallery policy. Some changes to templates, making things more efficient and such. And yeah, the workshop. There's also the DPL extension, not sure if you've seen that. But overall I don't think there have been very many major changes. I'm always here if you have more questions though. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 18:12, May 26, 2013 (UTC)
Ok, I'll ask if I don't get anything. Thanks! Steph physarum (talk) FANMADE_Octavia_by_the_fireside.png 18:32, May 26, 2013 (UTC)
Oh yeah, your talk page reminded me. Definitely check out the image renaming queue that Foodbandlt created, you can enable it from Preferences-->Gadgets. You can use it to update file links automatically - if you're just renaming one or two images, you can use the single-rename button, but more than that if using the queue it's best to use a bot tag and use the queue feature. It definitely saves a lot of time, though you have to be careful with it sometimes (such as when the original file name you are updating could occur within other file names). Oh, and HotCat is another Gadget that was added, that can be very useful. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 19:34, May 26, 2013 (UTC)
Sure, I enabled those just now. Also: is there a general consensus for a good Season 3 source (for taking screenshots)? Steph physarum (talk) FANMADE_Octavia_by_the_fireside.png 12:48, May 27, 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, that would come in handy (still have to upgrade ALOT of images before I get to S3). The Americanized Brony12:53, May 27, 2013 (UTC)
Well, we don't really have a consensus for a particular source even for the first two seasons, since we don't know what exactly the show is supposed to look like. Anything that looks reasonable is fine - 720p or 1080p, as high quality as possible, and not overly saturated. Personally, I use the 720p torrents from the user "me8myself" on TPB (which are, reportedly, the iTunes versions). I haven't checked all of them (there were a few episodes that had glitches and I haven't looked lately to see if they've been fixed and reuploaded), but the ones I have seem good. A 720p episode should be around 700MB. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 18:39, May 27, 2013 (UTC)

My Little Pony Comic

I believe that the two IDW My Little Pony Comics Books Series are canon and take place in the same universe as the My Little Pony Friendship is Magic cartoon. Do you believe that the two IDW My Little Pony Comic Books Series are canon and take place in the same universe as the My Little Pony Friendship is Magic cartoons? 22:28, May 26, 2013 (UTC)

I can't remember what they've said about this, but it's a very similar universe if not the same one. One seed of doubt in my mind is the map at the end of issue 2, but I dunno about that. Anyway, it doesn't matter to me. I just enjoy them as they are, and the wiki covers all official material, so a distinction isn't really necessary for me. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 22:36, May 26, 2013 (UTC)
The beginning of that issue shows that what's on that map is simply south of what's on the Equestria map. 22:42, May 26, 2013 (UTC)
Well, I'm a derp, thanks. I'd have to go and look what they said about the universe, then. But meh. :P ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 22:45, May 26, 2013 (UTC)
Did read all of the comics issues that came out so far yet? I believe that the two IDW My Little Pony Comic Books Series are canon and take place in the same universe as the cartoon series. As of right now the series take place before season three. 00:23, May 27, 2013 (UTC)
No, I've only gotten through issue 2 so far. They've said it's between seasons 2 and 3 time-wise, yeah. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 00:28, May 27, 2013 (UTC)
Before season three? The second panel on this page of Micro-Series Issue #3 strongly suggests that at least How Rarity Got Her Groovy Back takes place after the season three episode Wonderbolts Academy. 00:39, May 27, 2013 (UTC)
Maybe it's just the main series then, so far. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 00:40, May 27, 2013 (UTC)

Will do

Just noticed you're message on my wall (didn't there used to be notifications for that sort of thing?) and just wanted to say: Yes sir. I will do my best.

See ya around. Yu Yan Archer (Talk) 05:43, May 27, 2013 (UTC)

Yeah, there are notifications, or there should be. Maybe it got hidden by something else. You can also turn on email notification of talk page messages in your preferences. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 05:48, May 27, 2013 (UTC)

[Character appearances]

Hey man I was just wondering what the M and B mean, I saw them when viewing the characters appearance in the episodes. 15:41, May 27, 2013 (UTC)Mennims

See here. 16:55, May 27, 2013 (UTC)


Hey Bobogoobo. I have customized a script that you may like. I know you are an active admin, so it will be beneficial for you to use it.

The script auto-adds a template to a page. It's easy to use, and simplifies your tasks as an admin.

Add this code in your global.js:

importScriptPage('User:Jr Mime/MarkForTemplate/General.js', 'mlp');

You will see a template button at the bottom bar.

You need to make a copy of the template you want to use and add this at the start that requires a new line, since it does not generate a signature (Like User:Jr Mime/Cheating):

<noinclude><!-- --></noinclude>

And this at the end:


Thanks, — Jr Mime (talk) 00:20, May 28, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks, I'll keep it in mind, though it's usually faster for me to type in stuff myself :P. Unless I'm not completely understanding what the script does. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 00:27, May 28, 2013 (UTC)
When you click the button (which is on the bottom bar), it will open a popup window. In that window, you will need to enter the template name (like simply "Unsigned|Name"). Click save, and the template will be on the very last line with the "name" entered. Hope you understand :D. — Jr Mime (talk) 00:29, May 28, 2013 (UTC)
Here's an example: ImageJr Mime (talk) 00:30, May 28, 2013 (UTC)
Actually earlier today I made a script with the gracious help of COD that fetches the last user to edit a page (talkpage or forum) and it adds the unsigned template to the unsigned section with the single click of a button. You may find the script here. {{SUBST:NOSUBST|User:Shining-Armor/Sig2}} 18:58, May 28, 2013 (UTC)


It was for a script, but I found a better way. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Shining-Armor (talkcontribs) 13:13, 28 May 2013‎ (UTC)

Okay, I'll delete the template then, thanks. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 20:12, May 28, 2013 (UTC)

File:Cutie Mark Crusaders crest.png

Hey Bobo. Do you still need File:Cutie Mark Crusaders crest.png? It seems important, but I do not know. Thanks, — Jr Mime (talk) 20:30, May 28, 2013 (UTC)

It was a replacement for an image that is no longer used (it was on the CMC nav template), but since it's an official promotional image (and it looks cool), I'll go add it on the CMCs' galleries. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 21:36, May 28, 2013 (UTC)
Okies. I forgot about the :, sorry lol. Also, I didn't know about the page image. If you want, you can just do a link of the page on the same page so it doesn't appear on WantedImages. Thanks, — Jr Mime (talk) 21:38, May 28, 2013 (UTC)
Np. What does "the page image" mean? ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 21:41, May 28, 2013 (UTC)
File:Faust Feeling Pinkie Keen interpretation 2011-02-11.png. If you type in [[:File:Faust Feeling Pinkie Keen interpretation 2011-02-11.png]] on the image, it will remove it from WantedImages. — Jr Mime (talk) 21:43, May 28, 2013 (UTC)
Ah. You mean UnusedFiles? I was waiting for a decision on whether screenshots that are edited together count as FANMADE, because it was marked that way and then Throwy moved it without seeing the history. That's why there was still a redlink on my /Images page. I guess I'll just go change the link there. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 21:50, May 28, 2013 (UTC)

Crystal Empire Transcripts

Please see my post on The Crystal Empire - Part 2 as to why I believe it's "Not if I can help it." I believe that I'm right and I'm not inventing anything. --Euphgeek (talk) 01:36, May 29, 2013 (UTC)

Re: this: The closed captions on the DVD Adventures in the Crystal Empire say it's "That is mine!" I wouldn't call those captions a definitive source—they also say his name is King Somber—but they're better than nothing. (Think it'd do any good for someone to ask Jim Miller what he said and/or Meghan McCarthy what she wrote?) 03:10, May 29, 2013 (UTC)

I think a combination of close listening and deduction (as I replied to the above comment) plus those captions (wasn't he originally called Somber? Or was that just what people heard and tried to spell?) is sufficient, but if Euphgeek insists, I suppose we could try asking them, yeah. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 03:22, May 29, 2013 (UTC)
I watched it on loop for a while and I still hear what sounds to me like "not" as the first word. Watching the mouth movements carefully, however, he does seem to have an "m" sound at the beginning of the third syllable. I would be interested to see what Jim or Meghan say that line is. If the first word really is "That," it would seem that King Sombra briefly turned into Ajax Duckman --Euphgeek (talk) 04:49, May 29, 2013 (UTC)
Would you care to make the Tweet? I don't tend to have good luck with those :P ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 04:54, May 29, 2013 (UTC)
Sorry, I'm not on Twitter. --Euphgeek (talk) 05:07, May 29, 2013 (UTC)

Wanting to talk to you privately

When you have a moment, could you possibly log onto the chat and talk to me for a bit in PM? That or skype would work just fine ( nitsua_xepher ). It's about some previous edits you made some time back, I was hoping to talk to you about them.

User rights icon

Please could you remove me from MediaWiki:Common.js/userRightsIcons.js and Template:Admins? I've removed my rights to avoid any further conflicts and forgot to remove myself from that beforehand.  FANMADE_Animated_Derpy_Hooves_desktop_ponies_sprite.gif Sig1.png Sig2.png  07:52, May 30, 2013 (UTC)

Done. I hope you aren't leaving entirely, you're still a valuable contributor. ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 07:59, May 30, 2013 (UTC)
I'm still around; I wish to regain the community's trust, and of course edit :P  FANMADE_Animated_Derpy_Hooves_desktop_ponies_sprite.gif Sig1.png Sig2.png  08:03, May 30, 2013 (UTC)

Embedded videos on file pages and autoplay

I spent most of the day trying to come up with a way of detecting the iframe being injected and I finally found a way :)

The code can be found here, feel free to use it. Cåm 15:42, May 30, 2013 (UTC)

Good idea, I probably should have looked into intervals in the first place. I think I actually prefer my solution for now, since it cuts down a lot on load time, and I almost never watch videos on file pages anyway. Thanks though, I'll definitely keep it in mind! ~Bobogoobo (talk) Lyra_speaks_S2E25.png 21:19, May 30, 2013 (UTC)
