I wasn't planning on updating these lists until after the Hiatus is over but if anybody has anything to add, as always feel free.--Kabutton (talk) 10:40, 7 June 2016 (PDT)

Should we write them all out in full, with syntax, so it's easier to copy paste? --Spookypeanut (talk) 10:41, 7 June 2016 (PDT)

Good call. Would you care to do the honors?--Kabutton (talk) 10:42, 7 June 2016 (PDT)

Shall do, but I'm walking atm. Will do after baby bedtime:-) --Spookypeanut (talk) 10:43, 7 June 2016 (PDT)

Gorgeous. So professional looking.--Kabutton (talk) 14:31, 7 June 2016 (PDT)

Guest Categories page

By now you've probably seen my Help:Episode Categories page, and I feel like we should have a Help:Guest Categories page too (after all, Category:All-Star guests isn't a film name). The problem is that some of this stuff will have to stay here. Maybe we just have a link to the Guest Categories page from here? Spookypeanut (talk) 14:59, 8 June 2016 (PDT)

I've removed the guest categories from "Film names" and made it a page. Then I linked to all of them under the categories section of the getting started page What do you think of that?

I like that we're making help pages. Hopefully investing in this step will mean it won't be just us around here for too much longer.--Kabutton (talk) 16:27, 8 June 2016 (PDT)

A New Hope vs ANH

It seems strange that the abbreviation for a film that we refuse to call "A New Hope" is ANH, doesn't it? Shouldn't it be SW? Or maybe SWE4 to avoid confusion with the franchise? - spookypeanut

I agree, though I noticed that when we do occasionally abbreviate it, we've used ANH. I've no problem with it either way (I've just recently started calling it Star Wars thanks to Pete, and I think his level of purism on that point is pretty amusing). I just wanted to put something down for it. We can adjust the usage on the wiki to match whatever we decide to put on this page.--Kabutton (talk) 12:25, 1 January 2017 (PST)

Hey, please stop me if I turn into some kind of dictator on the wiki. I really want this wiki to belong to everyone, but I'm afraid I've been a bit controlling lately.--Kabutton (talk) 13:58, 3 January 2017 (PST)

I've been so out of it, it's good that one of us is still taking control! I don't think you've been too controlling, but I'll certainly tell you if I think you are. I guess if anything, the "nit-picking" section on the Etiquette page could use a "we're going to try to follow these, but it's cool if you don't" kind of disclaimer.

Oh, and maybe we could say on this page, something like "ANH does NOT stand for A New Hope. It's just some random letters that we plucked out of the air. Got it?" Spookypeanut (talk) 14:21, 3 January 2017 (PST)

Haha I love that idea!--Kabutton (talk) 14:27, 3 January 2017 (PST)
