  • Creating your first page can be rough and it seems you learned that. I'm posting here to give you some tips to get it right the next time.

    Firstly, Wikia has multiple editors: some of which are source editors while others are a combination of visual and source. Based on logs, you are currently using the VisualEditor (a combination editor) which I'd say is the hardest to create new pages with, more so if you aren't familiar with the page's layout (song pages don't like this editor and because of the <poem> tags, it's easier to edit with a source-type editor). Personally, I'd recommend the Classic editor (also a combination editor but more obvious). You can change editors in your Preferences.

    Secondly, once you change editors (you can do this step with the VisualEditor but the third step won't apply), check out the source tab (see the help page for the VisualEditor source if needed) when editing a song that exists. For the most part, every some page will look similarly when created. Every song page has two parts: the template and the lyrics section. The {{Song Header}} indicates the template (you can read about it if you want) while the <poem> tags are for the lyrics.

    Lastly, once you know how things are set up/work, you should know that the wiki has preloads that generate a shell of the page automatically for you (at the top of the edit box you'll see "Click to create a new (such-and-such) page."). These aren't available for anyone using the VisualEditor. When you are familiar with the setup of a page, these preloads make consistency easy (there are even examples of how song intros should be written; two examples for cover songs, two for originals). When you get to categories, check out the song categories. If it's not here, it's not added manually. Template documentation, and sometimes the category itself, helps here.

    I know this is quite a bit as editing can be complicated, but there's lots of useful info available on the wiki. You just have to know where to look and I hope this post will help out with that. If you have questions or need more help, let me know and I'll gladly answer.

  • Hey Jack, there's still a handful of deleted songs on the wiki and I was wondering if you had any of them that you would be willing to upload. If not (or if they were ones removed from your other account), that's fine. Hope to hear from you soon!

    • Yes I have all 6 of those the christmas ones won't be uploaded until Christmas time though. I can only safely upload what isn't on any of the official channels but all of these should be fine :)

    • That's understandable about the Christmas ones (though I'm listening to Christmas songs now in August). I've been using the Youtube-generated videos here as they shouldn't ever be deleted. Were they the old ones that got deleted last time?

    • All I know is that anything that isn't on the official channels I can upload no problem.

      I pretty much had every song on my old Youtube but it's kinda nice knowing I don't need to upload everything again.

  • Look here. You can see in the first line of the display what you shouldn't add. The description tells you exactly what to add, with an example - the file name only (not the wikitext to display the file, the file name is the name of the file as you would see it on a file page). You also uploaded the video twice as seen by the -0 at the end of the file name. This commonly happens if you press the upload button twice. Press it once and wait as it uploads.

  • As stated in our current policy, I am to inform new active users of the future opportunities available to them if they continue to be active over an extended period. If you continue to be an active user and beneficial editor, there is a chance in the future that council will vote you in as a member; giving you the rollback tool and acceptance as a senior editor. If you were to accept this offer, you will be required to continue being active, be a role model while editing, and vote in council matters. If you ever have questions regarding this position, feel free to send me a message. Keep up the good work!

  • You are the best user on the whole of Wikia.

  • Hey there! A number of months ago I informed you of your opportunity to become a council member and today I'd like to ask you if you are interested in a position in the body. We are down a couple members and you seem like a great addition for the wiki. You can read more on the council and it's purpose here, if you haven't already. Hope to hear from you.

    • I'd expect nothing less. Speaking of which, one reason I sought a nomination for you is another Council discussion I wanted to include another Council member in. You can find that one here.

      Your profile tag will be added a day or two after the above discussion (JS changes have to be approved by Fandom for security reasons). One other thing, do you mind adding a little bit to your user page for the community? You don't have to be overly detailed or anything, just something to tell everyone a little about yourself (can be strictly Chipmunks-based), thanks.

  • Can you create a wiki page for Pamela Glockenshlocker and add her personality

      Loading editor
    • She hasn't really appeared in enough episodes for a page to be created and we don't really know much about her besides her being eco friendly.

  • I noticed the images you uploaded. I went ahead and rotated and cropped them for you as well as replaced them over the existing files (maintaining the file history and makes for no extra work on articles). A few of the images looked a little off (this one I added a little saturation to closer match the front cover). The one I'm most concerned with is this one as it still looks too gray even with a little extra saturation (especially compared to the previous). This can't be what the cover really looks like?

  • I just created a new song maintenance category you may be interested in: Missing Versions. Some of these songs are missing versions from the 80s series. I'm going to be adding the link to the right rail on Special:WikiActivity as well.

    • Yes I am interested. Once I've fnished ckecking the 80's series songs we have pages for to make sure the lyrics are correct (only have season 8 left) I'll see what other songs need adding to the list and let you know which of those are online.
