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. Spookypeanut (talk) 14:20, 3 January 2017 (PST)

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)
