  • Hi Wilem: Are you planning to come back to the wiki anytime soon? I'm asking because there are several cast & character lists for recent episodes still without images, and I don't know if you've already capped them & just don't have time to upload them, or if real life keeps you away from the wiki. Let me know if it's possible for you to add them soon, otherwise I'd take care of it. No worries then :)

  • W, welcome back! We'd begun to think you'd joined the Foreign Legion!

    A quick word about ratings. Thanks for filling in the two missing sets. However... Neilsen releases two sets of ratings a day, the fast national (aka "overnight") ratings and the broadcast finals. The latter are released late afternoon, and are the more accurate of the two; the data you had were the fast nationals. I've gone back and corrected to the broadcast finals, consistent with what we always use, but wanted to be sure you understood why I did what I did. They don't make it easy!

    • LG:

      I'm sure by now you've labled me the fill- in- the- blank- PITA.

      I haven't learned how to make sense of the Neilsen (It's Leslie Neilson, right?) ratings since "Tales of the Gold Monkey" got cancelled in 1984.  Now you rock my world and tell me there are actually 2 ratings?

      Seriously though, I do try my best to fill in any blanks that I come across with as accurate information as I can find. Please feel free at any time to correct, amend, edit or otherwise change my entries, especially in the spirit of accuracy.  I'm a little touchier about my cast pics...but that's just because of the amount of work it takes to put those together. That being said ( a little firmer than I intended) I am ALWAYS open to suggestions and advice.

      The wife and I have been vacationing about like vagabonds for months, but we're home now for the most part and I look forward to spending some quality time in the POI universe.

      Warm Regards,

      Wilem

    • And here's me thinking you'd joined the Foreign Legion.

      Here's the trick to the ratings: they broadcast finals are usually posted on TV by the Numbers at roughly 2:00 pm Pacific time. The articles have the date and time on them. If the time works, you've likely got the right ratings.

      I rarely mess with cast pics because that's your wheelhouse. No worries there.

  • Hi W~ One thing about images I wanted to tell you. You might have noticed that I cleaned up the image folder a while ago removing all untagged and unused images. Among others I also removed several character images you uploaded but which never appeared on any page here.

    Now in order to keep the wiki image folder well organized, it would be great if you either only upload images that will be used on the Cast & Character page, or in the episode summary of an episode, or continue uploading several images of the same character in different scenes to choose from, and then remove any unused images yourself. Otherwise I will clean up any images that have not been used within one month after the episode aired.

    I've also set up an image archive where we can add images that will definitely be used later, to prevent them from deletion, and to change their status from "unused" to "used in an article". Additionally, any images we need for the wiki design are stored there.

    Let me know if you have any questions or suggestions. Your hard work is really appreciated :) I was hoping to catch you in the chat one day or another but it seems we've always missed each other. You'll find me more likely on IRC these days.

    • Claire-Bear ~ I've missed you terribly, and now with this whole change over to IRC I seem to quite literally miss you even more. It seems like forever since we've chatted, probably because it has!  

      I'm afraid my desire to provide the summary writers with plenty of options to choose from sounds like it may have become a liabilty.  Othertimes, there are 2 or 3 truly cool images of a major character and I can barely decide which one to go with, so I upload a few options in case you or LG or PS find one of the alternates more worthy of posting in the cast page.

      Regardless, I completely understand what you are describing and I will change the way I manage my pictures starting with this very episode. I'm all for lightening the photo pool as I currently have over 500 Gigs of just screen caps and the resultant edited images from the last 3 plus seasons.  I need to clean out my own collection one of these days, I can't just keep buying portable drives and daisy-chaining them together. It's unsightly, to say the least. lol

      If I can ever figure out this IRC thing, I very much look forward to catching up with you, PS, LG and all the other POI addicts. Cheers, Mate!

    • Hi W~ I've added some unused images from 4x01 and 4x02 to Candidates for deletion. Please check and let me know if can be removed, or if you have plans for them. Thanks :)

  • Would love to know the name of the restaurant where final scenes were filmed in "Allegiance" 3x18.  Thank you so much.

  • TJ has summaries up for 319 and 320 if you want to do that voodoo that you do with images before I add the act headings.

  • Hey Wilem,

    Seeing now that you're an admin (belated congrats BTW), can you please unblock the cast and crew pages for 311 and 312? Both of them are terribly messy right now with missing links, credits, messed up arrangements, and unnecessary redlinks. The edits I need to make are simply for cleanup, not for heavy modification.

  • Willem,

    You commented in an edit summary you were waiting for my feedback on something, but I can't quite figure out what.  I'm happy to oblige once I know what needs comment.

    • LG,

      I am pretty sure it was in regards to a question that was raised about dates for flashback segments of the summaries. There was a comment made that the formatting of the dates was not consistent. Sometimes the font sizes are bigger from one ep to another for example. I thought it advisable that we discuss how best to address the situation and felt I would be remiss if I did not insist that you be involved.

      Cheers,

      Wilem

  • Heads up: Template:Spoilers was broken when you deleted 1x02 EarlyMachine. I was about to replace the deleted image with it's replacement, but could not.

    • Have no fear, we can fix it with the appropriate picture. Unfortunately there is no way to tell what pictures are used throughout the site but rest assured we will fix any such as these that we come across. In the end, the replacement of the low res pics complete with logos will be worth it by making the overall site look that much better.

    • FYI:We did go ahead and fix the image for the template:spoilers with a hi res image

      Thanks for the heads-up
