Hi TAL, can you add something into the trivia part of the Scoob! page? The alien ship in the intro of the teaser trailer looks like Dick Dastardly's car from Wacky Races, and how the 'Falcon Fury' probably has something to do with Dynomutt and Blue Falcon. The film is said to be set on a new world where Hannah Barbera are going to establish their on "cinematic universe" with Scooby-Doo, Flintstones, Jetsons, Yogi Bear, Dynomutt, Wacky Races and other HB shows.
It's not really worth commenting on every trivia piece, when the movie will come and it will be real info, anyway. As for this "cinematic universe", it's only hearsay. I don't think it's ever been properly established by Warner Bros. that Scoob! is the beginning of one. All they have is this one film, with mutliple characters supportive of only Scooby-Doo and the gang. They've never gone out of their way to promote it as part of a series of interconnected films which will follow on from Scoob!
I'm going to get in and finish out the Classic Creep Caper video game pages for N64 and Game Boy soon, since I know both of them well. As those games are largely adapted from Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! episodes, do you have any thoughts on how to reflect that in regards to linking with character/location/object pages? The stories aren't exactly beat for beat copies of the episode plots and take some serious liberties (even if the basic characters and culrpits match the originals). Maybe note the adaptation in the game (with any discrepencies) in the notes/trivia on relevant pages?
I think it would be interesting to see a Scooby-Doo anthology film or episode where each segment is a short, odd mystery the gang had or something like that. I guess the format was kinda used in "Scooby Goes Hollywood," but it would be interesting to see it explored some more.
Hey! Recently I've been wanting to give up both Mystery Inc and Guess Who Wiki to another owner. What would your advice on this be? Should I leave a message here or there seeing if someone wants it or maybe on Community Central? Sorry to bother, I just want to know what you think.
If you have people you can trust on either, then make a post about it, or go directly to any individuals. I'd also go to Central and put the feelers out there. I know how to request for adoptions, but I'm not sure what protocol is for putting wikis up for adoption is.
Hello! I'm Sannse, from Fandom's Editor Experience team. I'm contacting you as the most recently active admin. Hopefully you can pass this on to others as needed.
One project that we're excited about launching is an initiative to pair newly registered users with experienced advisors (which they can choose from). These advisors would be available for answering basic editing questions and guiding appropriate edits, in the hope that these users will become active in the local community.
We are testing this for the next two months, and will see what the future of the program is thereafter. Is this a program you would feel comfortable with placing on your community?
Why do this, rather than rely on admins and moderators? We've seen from research and experience (both from Wikipedia) that establishing a human bond with a peer "senpai" or mentor can have a better effect on the comfort of the newcomer, especially where the high volume of edits may cause the quick response of rollbacks rather than taking the time to walk new editors through their early work. While some communities do take that time and care among their leaders, we feel an additional level might put new users at ease and help them be more comfortable with editing. Ultimately, we feel like this project will either free up some time for admins and moderators, or designate them as approachable welcomers to talk to and guide new users. We want to see how effective this is on a relatively small number of communities and see if Fandom's results are consistent with those experienced on Wikipedia. If they are, we may pursue expanding the pilot program and perhaps seeking to build it into a core part of the new platform.
Here's what we would wish for your community to agree to:
At least one volunteer advisor, acting as an advisor and advocate helping newcomers. For the most part, this means responding to questions that newcomers leave the advisor in Discussions. Sometimes this may mean the advisor interacts with admins and moderators to address concerns regarding the newcomer. We have some advisors-at-large (those not tied to the local community, but available as fallbacks) already, but if you have ideas on who you might want to represent you in this role (or if you'd like to do so yourself!), feel free to contact me on my Wall.
Discussions / Feeds. Your community must have this active for the current solution to work. This is the primary method in which advisors have open communication with the users that choose them. We also recommend a Feeds channel of “Help Desk” where the communications can be placed, if you do not have a similar channel.
A change to your Welcome Messages to allow a method where a newcomer can choose an advisor. If you are currently participating in the MyDashboard program, there will be a card there to interact with an advisor.
