  • Can I recreate Deceased Characters (2012 TV Series)? I think this is a useful category.

    • There have been 28 deceased characters in the 2012 series. That is enough for a category.

      There have been at least 29 deceased characters in the 2003 series (I'm only on page 5 of the"Deceased Characters" category). That's enough for a category.

      Deceased Characters is a category already, and some people don't want to scroll through every incarnation. I, for example, asked this question when I went on the Tang Shen (2012 TV Series) page and clicked the Deceased Characters (2012 TV Series) category page (it was deleted). I only wanted to look at that specific incarnation, not every version of TMNT.

      This should be a category for the 2012 series, the 2003 series, MNT Gaiden, IDW, Archie, and Mirage.

      Yes. Thank you.

      The S, we've talked about this before. I know you're really attached to parent category binge browsing, but it's a practical impediment to ordinary users browsing categories. Not only should certain subcategories exist (not categories about hair, but justifiable stuff like deceased characters in specific incarnations that have a good amount of them), but parent categories should not directly contain every entry of their subcategories. Instead, parent categories should have as few direct entries as possible, and instead be an efficient temporary gathering place for recently-placed articles not yet assigned subcategories and still awaiting maintenance. The bonus of that is that it makes Special:CategoryTree work more efficiently, because it's best suited for binge listing of large category trees if each category doesn't have many hundreds of direct entries.

  • Why is the release date and price getting deleted? Is it not useful?

      Loading editor
    • As indicated each time

      1) There is no release date yet. The one on Amazon is a placeholder.

      2) The pricepoint isn't something really noteworthy and I'm not convinced it would be needed in an article. I can't think of any Wiki that would indicate a pricepoint unless it was out of the ordinary.

  • According to these toy pictures Kraang's name is Kraang Krang. Just wanted to double check with you about Changing the name on his paramount page.

    • oh sorry also forgot there's also a technodrome for the new movie too. again just wanted to double check if it's all good to make a page for it.

      Technodrome Kraang

    • The Krang below that isn't his last name or something. If you look at the other figures, they also have other names below them. That's what Kraang's being called in another language's release.

      As far as I'm concerned it's okay to make Technodrome page, though. The only reason I didn't make pages on these things last night is because I didn't want to use DVD's scans without asking first and I didn't get around to it.

  • I wanted to let you know (or remind you, in case I already told you before), that I've been gradually trying to unclutter some of the most monolithic categories, like Category:Allies, Category:Villains, Category:Mutants, etc., by removing articles from the main categories and putting them only in the appropriate subcategories. When a category has too many article entries, it becomes extremely impractical to browse in Wikia's interface. So I've been trying to apply more of Wikipedia's principles of subcategory delegation and applicable cross-categorization to provide a neater, more logical category tree.

    • I spread word to a bunch of different users that are either well established or have been fairly active in the past several days.

    • I let the topic gather opinions, then they stopped coming, then I forgot and focused on other things.

      Anyway, Trigger thinks it's a good idea. Yoshimickster is open to the idea. Most other users I contacted didn't care enough or didn't answer at all.

    Hello again! I've got something to run by you regarding Turtlepedia (I'll hit Sugilita up as well since you are both active b-crats) that I'd like to get yourfeed back on. We've been talking to Nickelodeon about working together on a project for TMNT, and they are interested in possibly (nothing is for sure yet) working with us to create a "Turtle Portal" of some sort, powered by Nick and Turtlepedia. I'm not sure at this point where it would live - maybe even on an independent site - but I wanted to reach out and ask if you think the community here would hypothetically interested in working with us and Nick on a custom interactive Turtle experience. It would leverage info from Turtlepedia and would involve you (the admins) giving input on how to shape this new site. *Note* none of this is guaranteed yet in any way, I just want to get a sense of whether you'd be open to an opportunity like this.

    Please let me know as soon as you can, and as always, thank you for your time! :)

    • I'd love to work on something with them if possible. Please do keep me abreast of any developments.

    • Is such an arrangement even likely? Would Nick even agree to the terms of the CC-BY-SA? It's not exactly a non-transferable or strictly non-commercial license. Anything produced here can be copied (with attribution) anywhere else compatible with the CC-BY-SA.

  • Any idea how to fix the templates so the images actually fit?

  • I know this is Turtlepedia, and not just-what's-popular-on-NickToons-pedia. But not only have I become deeply alienated from the 2012 TV series and consider it a nuisance, but I think increasingly many of its fans who are editors on this wiki consider me a nuisance for complaining about it. I know this isn't the first time something in TMNT media has broken a fanbase into bitterly-opposed factions, but it may be most difficult time this has happened since I've joined this particular wiki.

    So, while it's undeniable I have plenty of useful work I can still do on this wiki, and there are several parts of the wiki in particular which I am primarily responsible for editing (and will go neglected if I'm not here), I'm not really sure what to do about the sense of bad blood that has grown between me and some of the 2K12 fan users. I had a huge blowup at UltimateTitan6 when something he said hit a raw nerve of frustration and I got angry for days because I felt sniped. Then it became even clearer, that I had virtually nothing in common with him as a TMNT fan in the first place, and we couldn't seem to see eye-to-eye on what TMNT fundamentally is. I tried very hard to keep calm, but I was (and have been for months) full of fury at this show.

    (Good reminder to never make me an admin. I'm a potential liability if I get too angry.)

    Since you've been here a lot longer than me, do you have any particular advice for helping me deal with really bad phases in current TMNT media, and get along with other users who may still happen to like it, without sacrificing or hiding my fundamental fan interests? I mean, I don't know a single TMNT fan friend who liked Fast Forward, and they all still hate it with the fury of a thousand suns, so I imagine things must have been rather "interesting" around here back then as well. Sometimes there are things that happen on a show that make some of us forever want to kill it with fire and blot it from all existence, but that's not really conducive to maintaining a peaceful, civil cooperative fan environment.

    • I have but one piece of advice:

      Moumantai.

      Or hakunah matata if you prefer. You don't have to like everything TMNT (I do, but I'm a freak), but you don't have to be antagonistic about it, either. Or anyone else for that matter. One man's trash is another's treasure and all that.

      To me, the dark periods weren't when there were "bad" TMNT... it was when there was no TMNT.

        Loading editor
    • Huh... I guess I was the opposite. The dark periods for me weren't when there was no TMNT, because I could still enjoy what I already had. The dark periods were when...yeah.

      Since I wrote the original message, I've been working at dialing back the antagonism. I also steadily realized that trying to appeal to cold logic is generally pointless when debating in a fan environment, because most fans are "like," "don't like," "want" and "don't want."

  • Mako should be renamed Lou Drumm.

    She-Dragon should be renamed Amy Belcher.

    And Vanguard should be renamed Vanguard Thakka.

  • Not only is the category name misspelt, but it also seems you deleted it once. And yet it's full of category entries. Should I purge the category, or should I recreate the category (as Category:Minor Villains) and move its entries?
