  • Since sometimes a character has no gender or their gender may be ambiguous, perhaps it's better to rename the category Category:Characters missing gender to Category:Characters with unspecified gender? It can flexibly imply either that the gender is unspecified in the story, or unspecified in the article.

    • Here's something weird I've never noticed before today: all words on categories are auto-capitalized on mobile in the article. It doesn't reflect that on the category itself, though.

    • That is...strange. It could be a mobile CSS style.

  • I came here to start all over with us. I hope I won't mention any "Wingnut" references, since you naturally didn't understood and not familiar with me as The Spliced Savage. I didn't bothered to do anything such as this sooner, since I didn't wanted to disturb your privacy after I left two messages that couldn't make sense for you. If I did anything wrong to you on those last two messages, sorry.

    I used to edit stuff on TMNTPedia before, but a lot of situations back then made things not so fortunate. I used to talk to Trigger009 when I made this account, but I haven't got a message from him recently. Unless you disagree with this (no offense), I think it's time I told you something I should've told you a long time ago.

  • For the second time, I've reverted someone's edit that added Category:Non-Mutant Anthropomorphs to Category:Triceratons, because the IDW Triceratons are mutants. Perhaps we should consider splitting Category:Triceratons into different categories by continuity? Or, at least, adding Category:Non-Mutant Anthropomorphs or Category:Mutants to individual Triceraton articles where appropriate? Though at this point, splitting up the Triceraton category seems like the more sensible option.

  • So I've been thinking...thus far we at Turtlepedia have been haphazard to applying titlecase or lowercase as appropriate to article names and infobox terms, and this has been partially my fault as well. But maybe not only can we use a more logical and consistent convention going forward, but we can rename articles and categories and infobox fields already on the wiki.

    So I'm thinking the convention should be: Use titlecase only for proper names including book, chapter, series and episode titles. But everything else should be all lowercase.

    Examples to title case:

    • Invasion of the Triceratons (except "of the" and similar words in similar situations)
    • Mighty Mutanimals
    • Tang Shen

    Examples to lowercase:

    • Category:Deceased characters (not "Deceased Characters")
    • Leatherhead's lair (the "lair" part)
    • mutant turtle
    • stone soldier

    In infoboxes, perhaps the field titles can be titlecase, but the fields themselves should probably be lowercase, like "Gender" with "male," "Species" with "human," etc.

    Even article names, which always capitalize the first letter, can have their titles displayed lowercase as needed, using the {{DISPLAYTITLE:}} modifier, so mutant turtle can have {{DISPLAYTITLE:mutant turtle}} so its big text display title will also appear in lowercase.

    Technically, {{DISPLAYTITLE:}} can also make work titles appear in italics, which is what Wikipedia does. For example, {{DISPLAYTITLE:''Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles''}}.

    A more borderline issue could be with "the turtles." In typing comics transcripts, I've been virtually always not treating this as a proper noun. If a family or team name is situationally treated like a title, it can be titlecased, but casual mentions of "the turtles" almost always seem more descriptive in nature and never like a proper title.

    Care would need to be taken to consider which case would be more likely in-universe in a given situation. In more toyetically-oriented works, there's a tendency for species, objects and locations, etc. to have more title-like names (Party Wagon, Squirrelanoids, the Turtle Lair, etc.), but this assumption almost completely evaporates in most of the comics (Old Hob's van, thanasoid, the lair, etc.).

    All of this would undoubtedly take a lot of work, but I'm not proposing it all be done at once, but rather gradually over time with watchful eyes.

    • Well I mean you've kind of buried your point in a sea of needless pontification. I'm not 100% sure I understand the gist of it because it looks like you pull in more than one way as to where you want to go.

      I also get a sense of urgency I don't feel is appropriate.

    • Sorry, I've been having a weird month with my medical situation. Three days ago when I started this thread was the first day in weeks I'd felt a surge of mental energy and eagerness to be productive. I was happy to have some focus and editing gusto again, though I might have come off as even more manic than I realized. I've been swinging a lot between excessive mood states as I keep trying to find balance with this new treatment I've been receiving.

      You're right, it's not that urgent. I was actually thinking it could be a slower, more gradual, long-term effort—I was thinking that even three days ago, but I had a lot of energy and felt like I was on a roll. Today my manic state abruptly collapsed and all that energy is gone for now...which is just as well, I guess. I think there are still some good ideas in my original presentation, though.

    • It doesn't look like the page was protected, so you should have been able to move it yourself. I went ahead and did it though. Was always planning to once I got back to scanning the movie adaptation comics.

      Tell me more about this Le Tartarughe Ninja? I don't believe I'm familiar with it at all.

  • A user by the name of "Jakjki3jred" is making troll edits and also deleting information from other users' profiles. I tried to tell them to stop, but they keep harassing me and calling me out by saying I'm mean. Please block this troll as soon as you access his profile. I've literally had enough of this user.

  • I'm sorry I unintentionally messed everyone about "Wingnut" years ago. I clearly told that I was here to help, but nothing. If you forgot I told you who I am, I'm The Spliced Savage from before.

    To make sure nothing bad happens to you nor anyone else, I can never edit TMNTPedia again.

    • Look mate, I don't know what you're talking about. I don't know or remember a The Spliced Savage, and I don't know what this Wingnut thing is about.

      If you're looking for an apology acceptance, you'll only get an empty one, because I have now knowledge or recollection of what you're referring to.

    • I'm trying to tell you that I was the very user that went by this username: The Spliced Savage. I guess you didn't noticed what I was doing, but another admin, Trigger009 knew what I was doing long ago. After that, I did left him a message, but I didn't got a respond soon.

      You're right, I'm sorry for getting you confused. If you don't understand, it's fine, really. If you need proof about The Spliced Savage, here's a link:[1]. I know it was a long time ago, but you may need to have your memory refreshed about The Spliced Savage.
