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.

    • You can upload the picture here by clicking on the "Contribute" button in the upper right corner below the "Start a wikia" button, then choose "Add a photo". That will take you to the page where you can bring it here.

      Now I'm not sure what you mean by "without getting it reported". As long as it relates to The Simpsons and isn't something like pornography, a picture promoting hate speech or something along those lines, it should be okay.

  • Hello sir.

    I've always liked the Tabs on the episode pages on this wiki and recently, I was trying to replicate the template, (I hope I'm allowed to do so).

    The thing is that, I'm making some bonehead mistake that makes the template to be all messed up. I tried all I could think of, but since I'm not educated on coding and stuff, I failed. I was hoping you could give me a hand and tell me what am I doing wrong, since you seem to be quite good at templates.

    See here to look at the monster I've created: [1]

    I hope you can help me. If not, well that's ok...I'l try something different.

    • Nice. I wanted to ask, how is it to be an admin in a wiki as large as this one? Stressful? Time consuming? Do you enjoy working on the wiki just as much as you did when you started?

      I ask because I'm being offered an adminship at another very large wiki and I'd like to know what it's like and you seem to be the man to ask that.

    • A lot of my time on this wiki is mostly monitoring what's going on, getting a feel for what the other editors are doing, and investigating if it looks like there might be a problem. It's been a while since I got a lot of the cleanup and updating done, and I haven't really worked on anything major for a while.

      Part of that came from work being very busy and also because I was spending a lot of time helping fend off vandalism on other wikis. That's settled down and I'm looking to become more active here and on a couple more wikis starting later this month.

  • Hey Roger! We wanted to run something by you, as part of our effort to connect fans with the Simpsons franchise, we are working with sponsors and partners to place certain content on communities.

    This content could be, for example, trailers, DVDs or behind-the-scenes videos for the tv show/movies and would live in a prominent place on all of the pages of your community. The placement is temporary (~2-4 weeks) and is only done with admin consent.

    Here's an example of one that is up and running now, look for the quiz unit.

    This is a great way to get content that is relevant and interesting to existing Simpsons fans as well as drive new fans to your Wikia community! What do you guys think about something like this being featured on this Wikia?

    • You also contacted me on the DreamWorks Wiki about this, so I'll answer here for both so that you get notified. Yes, I would like to participate in this, both here and on the DreamWorks Wiki. Both could use a boost to generate interest.

  • Yesterday (UK time) I was notified of an edit by said user to the Lionel Hutz page. I checked it out and found that although it was partly a good edit, it consisted largely of adding all the categories already on the page again. Since the latter is a known bug in the visual editor (one of the many reasons I don't use the visual editor, and don't recommend that anyone else does), instead of just doing a "rvv" (I felt that it might not have been deliberate vandalism) I carefully went through the categories and removed the duplicate ones.

    This morning I woke up to another change notification; it turned out that User:Liquidbabydoll had reverted my edit for no (stated) reason, making me suspect that her previous edit was vandalism after all. So I rolled back the page to the edit I did last night (one doesn't have to officially be a "rollback" to do this) and clicked on Liquidbabydoll's "contribs" link preparatory to reporting her; I was appalled to leearn that she's an admin! Surely admins are supposed to guard against these sort of acts, not do them themselves?

    Why oh why was this user made an admin?

    • Oh, please. I don't see how what I posted was a "personal attack", except insofar as it raised a legitimate concern, and as for personal attacks, surely bringing up an old thread and phrasing it to look like permanent incompetence, rather than temporary ignorance as it actually was, is precisely that? Anyone who bothers to check beyond the original request will easily find that I do now know how to close blogs, courtesy of the very helpful reply I got to that post.

      I did not add the Tapped Out category (I have never come across Tapped Out, thus have no idea whether any particular page belongs in that category or not); as I said, I just removed all the duplicate categories that had been added. (Along with Achievements, the Visual Editor is one thing I wish Wikia would get rid of, as in my experience (cleaning up after use of it) it's more trouble than it's worth.)

    • Calling me rogue was an insult. Writing " appalled to leearn that she's an admin!" was a personal insult. Writing " Why oh why was this user made an admin?" was an insult. Bringing up the thread was to show that some are admins and don't know much. Why oh why were they made admin?

      Let me answer why I was told I was made an admin. I was approached by a wikia star who manages many high traffic wikias. When I write manage , I mean truly manage. Coming in all the time and doing real managment, not coming in occasional and acting like a pompous tyrant. I was told it was thought I could be a help to this wikia. It was not I who gained my admin rights by default and took over because the original admin had not been logged in for 62 days. Look in the mirror and then ask why was __ made an adim and ask HOW also ,which is equally important.

      YOu really need to read the TOS, or terms of use , user rights and good faith policies at community central.You broke a rule about insulting a specific user. You took it beyond supposedly reporting a vandalism, which there is a specific place for that , and was just trash talking.

      You seriously went ballistic over a simple edit. I saw legit categories were taken out and undid it and than went back and took out some that should not have been added. Simple. There is not any way a disagreement over whether some categories apply is vandalism. Especially to someone who isn't a pompous tyrant . You did add the tapped out. It is on the edit were in the summary you wrote the unrelated personal gibberish "(rv to last good version; categories are not votes, there is no point in adding them more than once)".Another action against Wikia's rules. Ironically that edit was wrong, Lionel Hutz is not a tapped out character. You admit you know nothing about tapped out yet you added it.

      Happy editing and in my native tongue, arrivederci! :)

    • You're welcome. I can get screenshots from the episodes in iTunes, but the latest version of the program makes it a lot harder to do so.

  • It looks like Harry Shearer has left the show. I hope you don't mind that I edited the Channel 6 News template earlier to put this news on the front page.

  • Hey Roger, I'm sorry about predicting by asking you about the future. Quick question for you: Is Treehouse of Horror XXVII going to air in October 2016 in Season 28? Trust me, I'm not asking you about the future.
