New here and not sure where to begin?

When you first come to a wiki, you may not know how to make an edit or where to start. Take a few minutes and read the New to the Wiki? page. That will give you some important tips.

If you make a mistake, don't worry. We can fix pretty much all mistakes, with most of them being fixed by clicking on Undo in the History of a page. As long as you're not deliberately causing problems or spamming, an occasional mistake is no big deal.

If you still need help, leave me a message below and let me know what you need help with. I will see if I can answer your questions. If you left a message for me between September and December 2013, you might want to check archive #4 to see if it was answered before the Message Wall became active.

  • An IP has bought this to my attention, but our Character template is incorrect. I've made adjustments to the template. Could you have FerBot make the further changes. In case you aren't aware of the difference: sex is what you are physically, gender is more mental.

    • First, you will need to make it clearer what your wiki is about. The main page really doesn't say. It's "made for fun", "not really allowed for any Horrid Henry fan" and it's "like Horrid Henry, (but better)". It sounds like it's supposed to be a fan fiction wiki but is kind of vague about it.

      Second, you can go to the Wikis that need editors page and put in a request there.

      Third, keep editing your wiki and do it because it's something you want to do, not because you're trying to attract visitors. There's an old saying: "If you do your job because you love it, you'll always have enough money. If you do your job for the money, you'll never have enough." Having visitors is a bonus and should not be the primary goal.

  • People keep on making up any information for characters. For Example it says Sven Simpson had brown hair. There is no evidence. Are people allowed to do this?

    • There are some users on here, that are editing just to make edits. We're going to deal with that.

    • In some cases, the people doing this think they're helping out. "I don't see (insert a type of information here). I'll just add it." That information can be an age, birthdate, death date, relative, hair color or whatever. They don't think they're hurting anything by doing so.

      But it is false information or fan fiction. We are not allowing fan fiction here because we want the info on this wiki to be about official Simpsons media like episodes, books and toys. There are also at least three Simpsons fan fiction wikis, so fan fiction can go there.

      There are people who do this deliberately and when we identify that they are deliberately adding false information, they're blocked for vandalism. But for everyone else, they haven't realized that there is some information we're just not going to ever have because it's never put into an episode or other official media.

  • Earlier this year you closed one of my blogs. This intrigues me as I am a bureaucrat on the Beatles Wiki, and there's a blog there which I likewise need to close. The only way I have found of doing this is to fully protect the blog (which I have done) or to delete the blog (which I don't want to do as it's historical and non-spam). What is the official way of closing a blog? Also, is there a way of moving a thread incorrectly posted on a user's Message Wall, to their Blog instead?

    Just a link (or links) to this information would help.

    • I don't know if anyone's documented this yet, so here's the steps:

      You close a blog by editing it and unchecking the "Commenting" option. In order for this edit to show up in the Recent Changes list, you have to also change at least one character in the blog, so I typically add a space somewhere. If you don't do that, disabling commenting still occurs, but it's kind of invisible. Even putting something in the Edit Summary doesn't make it show up in that list unless you also do that change at least one character step.

      I go a step further and change the category so that if people are skimming the Blog posts category, these old ones are not listed and they can participate in the ones that are still active.

      The person that created the blog can still edit it and could re-open the blog for commenting. If you want to prevent that, you do have to protect the blog with the admin-only protection level.


      It doesn't look like you can rename a thread. About the closest you could come to that would be to create the blog under your own account, and then you can rename it to be under their account. The history will show it was made by you, but otherwise it will appear to have been created by them.

      Then, to delete the thread, so this:

      1. Hover the mouse over the lower-right corner to make the More button appear, then click on the triangle and then "Remove".
      2. Type in the reason you're removing it, such as "moving content to a blog", then click the Remove button.
      3. Refresh the page to bring back the message, which will now have the notice at the top saying it was removed.
      4. Move the mouse to the lower-right corner again. The More button will now have a Delete option.
      5. Fill in the same reason and click Delete.
