Lots of locations/places

I was wondering (bouncing off a idea here), what you would think of the idea of starting a section at this wiki that would have maps and links to locations in the movie/games and a animated version type thing? Could be informative and fun. Sure many places in the ghostbusters universe are made up, but many are not. I'd think it would be neat. What do you think?  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  06:09, January 2, 2012 (UTC)

Sure, sounds like a good idea. Could be part part of the Community Projects like "Ghostbusters Maps." Maybe there's an option in place to set up a customized map with location points in Google Maps or Google Earth. The majority of the locations we know what area they are in, some with an exact address, and so on. Mrmichaelt 06:19, January 2, 2012 (UTC)
Well I never thought of using google maps to actually place these locations. We'll see what can be done.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  07:16, January 2, 2012 (UTC)
Good news, Wikia offers it upon request. Wikia Help:Google maps. I just wrote wikia requesting the extension. (examples)  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  07:38, January 2, 2012 (UTC)
Cool! That should cut down the time in making maps. Looks like some new coding to learn as well. Mrmichaelt 07:51, January 2, 2012 (UTC)
Testbed over at Wikia Help (its on at that wiki). I think it will work great once we make a system for it. It seems quite easy.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  08:25, January 2, 2012 (UTC)
That's encouraging! I'll try it out tomorrow in your sandbox. Mrmichaelt 09:49, January 2, 2012 (UTC)

"Mandala on Real Maps" at deviantart

"Mandala on Real Maps" is research for the current project. But I like to know if its ok at Ghostbusters Wiki or not when talking about the Ghostbuster World Map.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  02:28, January 7, 2012 (UTC)

Seems okay to put into the project talk page. What was your hesitance with talking about it or not here? Mrmichaelt 05:26, January 7, 2012 (UTC)
To be honest, I was just tired after finishing it, I take a nap. I come back here 4 hours later and boom. Nice work cleaning up this vandals mess. I honestly can't believe anyone would think 60 some edits is a good thing. Let me wake up. lol  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  06:23, January 7, 2012 (UTC)
Thanks. It's definitely something I didn't feel like seeing after a LONG day out. I also replied in a couple Talk Pages, could use your help with confirming Louis' apartment # (in 55 Central Park West talk page). Mrmichaelt 06:56, January 7, 2012 (UTC)
I'll be working on screen caps for the first film tonight. I'll give it a good look.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  07:50, January 7, 2012 (UTC)

Back to High Alert?

That was fun doing rollback for all that... NOT. With New Years over, the joyfulness if over. I guess we have to be on alert for "category bandits" again. (I noticed you did a temp ban earlier today but it didn't work). Mrmichaelt 05:32, January 7, 2012 (UTC)

I have to give them a bit of credit, atleast they signed up this time. Yeah, no way of knowing if this person is the Greenview vandal tho. Maybe someone else.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  07:47, January 7, 2012 (UTC)

You got the "Morgan Le Fay"

Wow, that is not a easy badge to get. Think you have to make 50 edits in a hour to get it. Congrats!  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  07:59, January 8, 2012 (UTC)

Thanks! 100. I had to look it up in that badge breakdown you blogged about, lol. Guess it was a combination of rollbacks and whatever edits I did last night. I think there's 3 badges for that "random" category - Lucky's Demon, this one we're talking about, and a third that sounds super complicated - I'm not really sure how to do it in the first place. Mrmichaelt 08:08, January 8, 2012 (UTC)
The one no one including me has is the "Silver (50 points)for making edits on 100 pages within an hour of the page's creation!" badge. You got the "100 edits on pages in a single day!" badge. Not sure how to get the 100 in a hour badge. I never seen it abtaned anywhere. So it may be a pointless tease, much like the Creator badge which went to the person who made this wiki (The guy never even edited here and he got 100 point).  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  08:47, January 8, 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, the 100 in a hour badge sounds really off. I'll have to look up they guy cause I'm a little curious what that badge looks like since it's a one of a kind. Mrmichaelt 03:04, January 9, 2012 (UTC)
Well the creater of the Wiki tag was of Gozer. I am thinking of doing another category of badges for locations. Do you think that would be a good idea?  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  03:46, January 9, 2012 (UTC)
For some reason I don't see the badge. Who was the creator of the wiki, it was that LATrumpet person, right? Wouldn't hurt to add Location badges, sounds good. Mrmichaelt 03:56, January 9, 2012 (UTC)
User:Gbfreak2021
Thanks. For some reason, that user's link doesn't work on the Admin page. Mrmichaelt 04:15, January 9, 2012 (UTC)
That is because there is no page. He never made one. Unlike today, wikis didn't automatically make profile pages or talk pages. So the only way to go there is by actual url address and not wiki markup magic words. Those instead take the clicker to a new page to make.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  04:19, January 9, 2012 (UTC)
Ah. So that's why. Now I know, lol. Mrmichaelt 04:37, January 9, 2012 (UTC)
The Badge that you couldn't get will become active across wikia next week. Please read here.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  04:06, January 14, 2012 (UTC)
So it wasn't turned on all these years. Huhn. So basically, if you create 100 articles in an hour and edit each one or make 50 and edit each twice you get the badge? That's still sounds rather tough to get without getting spammish. We'll see...Mrmichaelt 04:16, January 14, 2012 (UTC)
You were right. I did get the 100 in an hour one already. Just came up 13 minutes ago, Ballard Wright. Mrmichaelt 04:29, January 20, 2012 (UTC)

GB Wikia Facebook

I noticed you've commented on Tristan's facebook about something recently. Not that I disagree or anything but just so that there's clarity on who's using the account, could you end your comments with your username? I'd appreciate it. Mrmichaelt 02:56, January 9, 2012 (UTC)

Point understood. I let my personal thought out-way the Wiki's. With dealing with facebook and any social network, there is a grey area of what I think versus what the wiki is. I may have crossed the line there. Usually I try to note when its from my own thoughts, tho I have been letting that slide. Time for me to refocus and make it more clear.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  03:36, January 9, 2012 (UTC)
I also wrote something addressing this issue in the thread you are noting.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  03:41, January 9, 2012 (UTC)
Thanks. Mrmichaelt 03:54, January 9, 2012 (UTC)
I have started to conclude posting/comments with (Devilmanozzy). That will I think work well. Either way, I try.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  10:40, January 11, 2012 (UTC)
Thanks, that works for me. Mrmichaelt 11:07, January 11, 2012 (UTC)

Sigh Map has been done before

I just found this when google searching "making ghostbusters map". The good news is we can do better I think. But this will come up when talking about the map here at some point. I didn't know about this, and to be honest I was working off Spook Centrals site mostly. BTW found this at spook central today too. If that really is it from Making Ghostbusters, we can conclude that there was no official location for the Hotel. But The video game is basing the entrance of the hotel off something else or making it up. I think a look around new york on google maps is in order.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  11:19, January 11, 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, I left that Spook Central link. I vaguely remember it, but it was noted to not be a complete map. So it's not really an absolute reference. Sucks neither of us has the book but I ain't forking $250 or whatever it is right now on eBay. Maybe Paul has one and is willing to look up Sedgewick notes? Basically The Video Game is our answer to where the Sedgewick is located. Mueller placed it in the Garment District in the TSS novel which syncs more or less. But in general, it's the typical old school 5 star hotel. Having it near Central Park makes sense since that seemed to be the hotbed for Shandor's equipment. Mrmichaelt 11:43, January 11, 2012 (UTC)
I have bugged Paul about it, and it feels like he really doesn't want to scan the book. I may ask him about the making ghostbusters map tho. That has been the biggest let down of the whole ebook thing. I can't fault him, I damaged my books to scan them, and the same would happen to that book. yeah, the book was a low $60 which was too rich for my unemployed blood. heck when I was working, I would ever have $60 to spend like that. Sad to say. Anyways, there is no real copies of the making ghostbusters up as the people posting they are selling are more like bragging.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  12:03, January 11, 2012 (UTC)
I kick myself for not taking thorough notes the one time I borrowed a copy from a library before it became lost. But I wasn't aware of the wiki at the time. Yeah, that's right, the price does fluctuate from $60 to $250 throughout the year I've noticed. One of these days, I'll have the dough lol. I'm off to get some sleep. Mrmichaelt 12:19, January 11, 2012 (UTC)
Paul just sent me the Making Ghostbusters Map as it appears. Need to get it doctored a bit, but It is big, but doesn't answer the fictional aspects. It however is going to help me locate some of the real world location. I'm working with Paul on that right now. He confirms both China Town and the Zombie Driver scene are found, he just needs to updated. I found today one of the Louis (possessed by Vinz Clortho ) where he is near a "WienerWald". I'll am sharing information on this project with Paul. Been spending a lot of time looking for locations, so I am not posting as much at Ghostbusters Wiki as I usually would.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  06:40, January 14, 2012 (UTC)
Great news! Might as well give a status update, I think for the time being, I'm pausing on RGB because I just got the The Other Side trade in the mail so I'm going to be working on those articles then the wikia will be caught up on IDW just in time for ongoing #1 edits to begin at the end of the month. Mrmichaelt 06:55, January 14, 2012 (UTC)

Text theft at the Wiki

Special:Contributions/Robotgoon .... Pretty much this user I found out was copying and pasting info from Spook Central and other sites. I'll have to address it. Paul sent a friendly email noting it.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  10:08, January 17, 2012 (UTC)

Looking over this user's history, I would have thought we overwrote whatever was stolen. Since I'm working on RGB episode edits, I'll likely overwrite whatever else is left. I did notice that on "Hard Knight's Day" but I simply put a reference to Paul's site on it. Did Paul specifically say what? Mrmichaelt 02:04, January 18, 2012 (UTC)
Paul also noted that his site is not a saint on the issue. He didn't tell me about it to bash, but to help out. He isn't holding this against us. Most of Robotgoon edits were fine, and in most cases he copied the plot of a Spook Central page. A few pages he copied the trivia tho, and it was done badly. I can't fault Robotgoon as the rules we have today were not in place when he was editing. He was playing by the rules. Heck in 2009 I was copying from Wikipedia. Trivia will have to be double checked on pages and plot rewrites may be in order. Note he did this mostly with Slimer! and Extreme Ghostbusters. Paul had pointed out the Grease episode of Extreme Ghostbusters.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  07:15, January 18, 2012 (UTC)
I see. Well, next time you email him, let Paul know since I'm revising the episode articles anyway, I'll eventually rewrite over the copied text this year. Mrmichaelt 07:46, January 18, 2012 (UTC)

Is it the big Night?

Wow, no clue how this will go down. IDW ongoing series section starts. Can't wait to read some of the articles!  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  03:24, January 29, 2012 (UTC)

Yup. I'm not sleeping tonight, lol. Mrmichaelt 03:37, January 29, 2012 (UTC)
I finished doing the screen caps for the chapters in the first film, so I'll be working on screen caps for gb2 tonight. But I'll be be doing a light edit time tonight. I'm in a bit of a reading mood. But I'll be reading over the new pages you are making sometime tonight.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  03:43, January 29, 2012 (UTC)
I changed the Spoiler tag to {{HotSpoiler|This is for [[Ghostbusters IDW Ongoing Series|IDW Ongoing Monthly Series]].}} for Slimer and Walter Peck. I want to make sure that it is only about the new comic series.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  04:27, January 29, 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for thinking of phrasing the tag that way, more so at the start then when at the end of the edits, heh. Phew, well I believe I am officially done. Not as bad as I feared. Mrmichaelt 09:11, January 29, 2012 (UTC)

About the John H. Watson

"Egon later refers to Sherlock, Hound of the Baskervilles, Moriarty, and Watson as Free-Roaming Archetypes " was removed when undone. Is that not part of the classifications? Try and work with the new guy. Please do not bite the newcomers. I see issues with the removal of information and he doesn't understand infobox templates. Lets try to be nice about this. I like more good editors here. Sometimes they have to break a few things before learning how to add things.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  09:03, January 30, 2012 (UTC)

i have th complete seris on DVD and ive spent many hours doing reserch on the ghost busters ive seen every episode episode at least 50 times ive heard every word and evrey line and i am not hard of hearing and i know what am talking about and love the ghostbusters mor than anyone in world. OK my spelling is realy bad but i like to think i know the ghost busters pretty good
Well there are issues with the edits. The templates (class=) really shouldn't be edited unless you know what your doing. I suggest for content adding, instead of replacing. Please try to spell things correctly, and use punctuation. I know not everyone is on the same page on grammar, but please try to improve on that in future edits.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  09:25, January 30, 2012 (UTC)
Lot of edit conflicts so I couldn't respond till now. I temporarily reverted the edit until I could find references in the episode then rolled back to Brian's. For the spelling issue, when editing switch to the Source tab. There should be automatic spell checking in place. Mrmichaelt 09:30, January 30, 2012 (UTC)

Thank you

Quick note from me

Check DeviantArt. Yes I'm treating it like a pm.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  00:34, January 31, 2012 (UTC)

Done and replied. Mrmichaelt 05:45, January 31, 2012 (UTC)
Replied to the reply. Wikia needs a PM system.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  07:07, January 31, 2012 (UTC)
Replied to reply of reply. And, agreed. Perhaps you could ask the Big Bosses if that option is available on Wikia. Mrmichaelt 07:20, January 31, 2012 (UTC)
A Reply was sent to the reply to the reply of the original message. Want a diagram yet?! Oh I hear a lot of things at Wikia Central. Most of it is ideas to make the wikis more into social networking sites, which I don't like. But PM's were spoken of in the brain storming phase at the wikia devs area. No word on the forum update. The User Walls which will replace our talk pages are a bit more like forums. I hate them too. I do think Ghostbusters Wikia making its own forum outside wikia may be a good option to consider in the future. But Effort in that would be high, and I don't know if we really want to go that way. Proboards is the company I'd use if I did it.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  08:27, January 31, 2012 (UTC)
Rererereply sent. I think. I do not like the idea of turning wikis into social networking sites either. That is nowhere near the whole concept of what a wiki is. Let's hope those ideas get ditched. ugh. I am undecided about an external forum, the spambots are getting way too smart nowadays. Mrmichaelt 08:44, January 31, 2012 (UTC)

thank you

Um... you are using the "Upload Multiple photos"?

I thought are saw images show up one at a time in recent just now. the Upload Multiple photos is under "my tools" which you click and then click that.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  07:57, February 4, 2012 (UTC)

Only options I have with My Tools is History, What Links Here, and Theme Designer. Mrmichaelt 08:04, February 4, 2012 (UTC)
.... Sort of nevermind, but.... Check out Customize. you can add Upload muliple photos. I forgot that wasn't a preset. sorry.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  08:08, February 4, 2012 (UTC)
Damn. That would have useful...lol. Yeah, got it now on My Tools now. Thanks! Mrmichaelt 08:25, February 4, 2012 (UTC)

Extreme Ghostbusters Episode Plots

Noticed you edited the first couple of plot blurbs for the Extreme Ghostbusters episode articles, due in part to the whole text theft thing from Spook Central. May I suggest we mine the archived EGB website? If you look at each entry for the Ghost Activity Archives, each entry has an "Incident" section which essentially sums up the episode the entity appears very nicely and would fit really well as the article blurbs here at the wiki. Mrmichaelt 09:31, February 6, 2012 (UTC)

Well, I don't know if that would be seen as much improvement actually. We could have kept the plots the way they were, as Paul has been rather nice about the whole thing. This was mostly my decision, as I feel people do notice the "copying" and think lesser of the wiki for it. I think it would be better to write them one by one and give some thought into it. We're doing it with most of the Real Ghostbusters episodes, why be any different here? I am saying this knowing Rome wasn't built in one day. But in time, this wiki will be the better for it. Now on the other hand, if good info such as names can be salvaged from the site, that would be useful.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  09:55, February 6, 2012 (UTC)
Yeah. It's something to stew on. Thought I'd suggest it before I forgot because I don't think an official loglines were released for EGB. I think you mined what names could be already last year when someone, I forget who, found the archived site. Mrmichaelt 10:17, February 6, 2012 (UTC)
This link is now up that is better (This link loads faster). We did mine the sate some, but there are other things to check out.
Egons Spirit Guide information, I would like covered over he at some point. Issue is how to do it and make it not such a copy paste thing.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  10:21, February 6, 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, that's going to take some thinking. But on the bright side, I noticed the Firehouse tour is going to provide some great images for the Firehouse Animated gallery. Mrmichaelt 11:10, February 6, 2012 (UTC)
I went ahead and screen capped everything I could from that site. No Clue how we should present it still, but better being safe than sorry.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  05:41, February 13, 2012 (UTC)
Great! Spitballing here, but I guess we should present it on the EGB official site article? Mrmichaelt 05:49, February 13, 2012 (UTC)
Well that would be a good start anyways, then debate where to go from there. I think I'll get the PSD files (Photoshop multiple layer files) split apart and uploaded right after I get done with this credit stuff. That would be in like 3 days.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  05:56, February 13, 2012 (UTC)
Okay, sounds like a plan. Mrmichaelt 06:00, February 13, 2012 (UTC)

Adding Real Ghostbusters Credits

I sure you see me editing The Real Ghostbusters Credits 1. Plans are under way to house credits in both and screen cap and written form for all 7 RGB seasons, S!, and EGB. I couldn't find a site doing this other than IMDb and lets just say this, they ain't right. This will be useful in referencing who was credited and things like that. I have no clue why no one did this, but I am going to.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  05:38, February 13, 2012 (UTC)

Sounds good. Just finishing up Issue #2 edits, myself. Mrmichaelt 05:44, February 13, 2012 (UTC)
Been Sneaking peaks at the edits. Some nice new reads, and great screen caps.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  05:47, February 13, 2012 (UTC)
Thanks! Ellen Gold probably had the most meat since the PCOC page was about her. That's my new fav right now. Mrmichaelt 05:58, February 13, 2012 (UTC)

About the girl in the bookstore

Well its clear she will not be the same girl from the galore days of Extreme "Gothness". When the month she appears comes up, this alternative reality character that isn't Egon's pet, but Ray's bookworm will need to be her own article. Her back story seems to be too different.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  05:13, February 15, 2012 (UTC)

Fine with me. A "____ (IDW)" for the title makes sense to me. Also, for the main page, I have a suggestion for the drop down menu. For the first level that has the 'columns' of "On the Wiki," "Community," "Film/Comics," and "Animated" can we put one more column: Rules? Then for that column, have the Policies and Guidelines from the Community column moved there? I think it's best it be totally visible from the minute any page is accessed. Mrmichaelt 05:21, February 15, 2012 (UTC)
I think it let me do it.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  05:50, February 15, 2012 (UTC)
(Er...I understood the second half of your sentence) Looks great, there's no excuse for not seeing the various rules now. Mrmichaelt 06:58, February 15, 2012 (UTC)
One more time the article is edited in violation, it gets locked. It's just happening essentially every day now. Agree or disagree? Mrmichaelt 08:23, February 20, 2012 (UTC)
Done. Protection lifted on May 17, 2012. Now watch them find somewhere else to edit that info in. 09:31, February 20, 2012 (UTC)

Extreme Request

I don't own a dvd uk Extreme Ghostbusters box set 1. I do own a bootleg collection on dvd (before 2008 I got it when the world didn't have EGB on dvd at all). Anyways the credits on the box set would be the best as the ones on the dvd I have (scratch that they didn't include them) and the youtube vids... Disney water marks cover text in credits. I need stills of each frame of text so we have a official reference like I'm doing for Real Ghostbusters and Slimer!. Could you "please" do that for me?  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  07:58, February 15, 2012 (UTC)

Once I do it, my limit is up and this is the last time I can switch between DVD Regions. Is there anything else you want me to grab, such as the Title Sequence? Mrmichaelt 08:14, February 15, 2012 (UTC)
Why is your limit up? Please explain. I thought you just screen capped them on your computer.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  08:18, February 15, 2012 (UTC)
All computers have a preset limit on the number of times you can switch your DVD Player's DVD Region. So basically when I switch to the region for my EGB set then switch back to region 1 and continue with my RGB edits, that's it. I can't watch other region DVDs on my laptop until I get a new laptop or home computer. Mrmichaelt 08:24, February 15, 2012 (UTC)
Never heard of that. I use a Toshiba PC, and the video player is VLC (free program you can get online).  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  08:27, February 15, 2012 (UTC)
HP and I've always used VLC. Didn't matter. I had to switch regions. Mrmichaelt 08:33, February 15, 2012 (UTC)
Just read Wikipedia:DVD Copy Control Association, which confirms it. I don't think any of the dvd's I own are beyond region 1 or no region. I don't want you stuck on the region 2 side either. I am blown away such a thing exixts and may have added to why people are ripping dvds. I didn't at any rate find "dirty copy files" of the dvd out there. I'll go through and make sure I don't have credits first. I was unaware of these and I still can't believe it. While good quality credit image grabs would be great, this seems to be a bad thing for you. Let me make sure I don't have it after all on these dvds. Maybe they only had it on one of them.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  08:41, February 15, 2012 (UTC)
Good news. the very last disc of the three included it once. I is a bit hard to read, but its for reference anyways. I think it would be better than risking it.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  08:51, February 15, 2012 (UTC)
Okay, I'll hold off. I should have just grabbed everything when I was watching my EGB DVDs. Sorry about that. Mrmichaelt 08:56, February 15, 2012 (UTC)
I didn't think of doing this at all til last month anyways. Paul had sent notes about this to correct and one of them was about a guest role being accredited. He said while he says we had this (uncredited) thing wrong, it would be hard to prove it. That is when I got the idea to go ahead and upload images of all credits and type them out too. We needed it for referencing. Anyways, I was emailed about this back on January 17th, so how could you have known. Likewise I was unaware of the region switching bs. (I think my 2006 laptop may have missed the boat on this.) What is really sad is I have the three VHS's of Extreme Ghostbusters, which have the credits perfectly, but I don't have a way to transfer it to digital.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  09:08, February 15, 2012 (UTC)
Groan. I have the means to transfer to digital. Mrmichaelt 09:17, February 15, 2012 (UTC)
You don't by chance live in the mid-west do you?! .... These were those neon colored vhs boxes with 2 episodes each. I think I got these through Amazon back around 2000. No clue how they have held up. My nephew got to watch them some a few years ago. They look like they were treated good tho.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  09:29, February 15, 2012 (UTC)
Nope, I do not live in the mid-west. Yeah, I've seen those three VHS volumes on Amazon. Mrmichaelt 09:38, February 15, 2012 (UTC)
Well My guess was California, but I have no references to back that up. lol. I really do live in Hannibal, MO (USA) btw. I don't think that is a secret through. (my profile says it)  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  09:45, February 15, 2012 (UTC)

User Basse897

This persons comment "inga spöken" is Swedish for "No Ghost". Be aware if they return and start editing, that they comment in Swedish. So wearing kid gloves on that one.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  03:23, February 18, 2012 (UTC)

Quotes Policy

Looking at all 12 episode articles edited, I thought the Editing Guidelines made it clear we don't allow quotes? What should we do? Mrmichaelt 03:50, February 21, 2012 (UTC)

I don't like a "lot" of quotes per page. Looking at the edits I have seen from "NekoSavior", I concluded he was ok. I think 3 "dialog shorts" are ok in a quotes headline section. I however don't want to see articles "focused" on them. I think revisiting our quotes part of the policy may be in order, but a few in a section is fine and helps readers identify with a episode and character. We can't make rules for everything.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  03:58, February 21, 2012 (UTC)
Fine, let's settle on a number. "The Devil to Pay" has five quotes. That looks like enough? Mrmichaelt 04:11, February 21, 2012 (UTC)

EGB Website

"ABC"

Just wanted to pop in say great work on the Extreme Ghostbusters Official Website article. I did a bunch of home repairs over the holiday weekend so that's why I haven't been editing much, but back to business as usual tomorrow. Mrmichaelt 06:27, February 22, 2012 (UTC)

Finished with adding screen caps for now on Extreme Ghostbusters Official Website. Not sure what I'll do tonight yet. Got a number of things I can do. I feel it will be a text editing night for me. Burnt out on making and uploading screen caps.
heh, there's always something to do isn't there? The whole process of making screen caps does take a lot out of one. Mrmichaelt 05:46, February 23, 2012 (UTC)
The Gozerian Alphabet Paul found the other week? Mrmichaelt 07:56, February 23, 2012 (UTC)
Maybe. ;) We're see what happens as I build it. I may need suggestions on it later. I havn't yet told Paul. I want to have all 26 letters atleast recognizable before sharing. This is a tease at this point.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  13:01, February 23, 2012 (UTC)

My Router or the Weather

One or the other caused me to not be able to be online most of the night. Finally got online 30 minutes ago.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  10:11, February 24, 2012 (UTC)

Huhn, you, too? I had a similar problem today. Mrmichaelt 10:12, February 24, 2012 (UTC)
oh really? Is your internet carrier AT&T? Maybe they are at fault.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  10:30, February 24, 2012 (UTC)
No, they aren't. BTW, is it alright if we make a RGB Items category - for stuff we can't categorize as Equipment like the Pillar of New York, Moaning Stones of Tangalla, Cabinet of Mystery, etc.? Mrmichaelt 10:40, February 24, 2012 (UTC)
Category: RGB Items . It is active.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  11:01, February 24, 2012 (UTC)

Off-topic Batman 500

No clue if you ever read this Batman comic, but I really dig this one so I uploaded the second half of it. This is Jean-Paul as Batman. Batman 500 comic  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  11:08, February 24, 2012 (UTC)

Awhile ago, I think that was the storyline that made me switch to Marvel for a few years. Mrmichaelt 06:38, February 25, 2012 (UTC)

Ghostbusters Wiki Facebook

For that entry on the timelines, could you remove my name. I prefer to only have my username that's why I don't list any personal info here on my user page. Mrmichaelt 05:41, February 25, 2012 (UTC)

Removed real name from posting and photo description. Noting not to use it in future also. Sorry about that.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  06:25, February 25, 2012 (UTC)
Thanks. Appreciate it. Mrmichaelt 06:38, February 25, 2012 (UTC)

I'm alive

I'm currently getting more DVD chapters of Ghostbusters II done. I hit a pretty long stretch of screen caps to upload. Scene 19 has over 70 alone. But yeah, I'll be more visibility active soon.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  06:22, March 1, 2012 (UTC)

Understood. It will be great to see both movies screen capped in their entirety. Mrmichaelt 06:27, March 1, 2012 (UTC)
Also, I'll be busy the next couple days so I probably won't be doing RGB episode edits until Monday-ish and may not be around much here. Mrmichaelt 11:26, March 2, 2012 (UTC)
No worries. Some days I am barely active here also. Infact, until a year ago, I was here usually once every 2 to 3 days. But that was cause college and wiki editing don't mix. Ok roger that.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  01:28, March 3, 2012 (UTC)
Been working on cleaning a Starburst mag which covers Ghostbusters Production. I am thinking that I'll be done pretty soon.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  04:05, March 6, 2012 (UTC)
Cool and sounds like a good read. I should back to RGB editing tomorrow or Tuesday, still a bit busy. Mrmichaelt 09:12, March 6, 2012 (UTC)

Clarification

Mr. Michael,

I (Endresr1) recently logged on here to find out that I had been blocked for "Removing content from pages: article tampering." I would just like to clarify that my edits were to correct the double redirects that are on here (hence the abbreviated summary of "dbl rd"). I honestly do not see how correcting a redirect link is anywhere close to "removing content from pages" or "article tampering".

Quite frankily, I am a little disappointed that no admin bothered to question my edits via my talk page. I admin two other wikis (Memory Gamma and Ghost Adventures) and I usually try to do a little bit of background checking on any suspicious activity that I come across (such as seeing what other wikis a user is active on, what type of edits they do or if they are blocked).

In the future, I would recommend not "jumping the gun" on registered users edits. In the meantime, I will leave your community and edit elsewhere where my contributions are more appreciated.

Regards,

--192.122.237.11 19:02, March 7, 2012 (UTC)(Endresr1)

Being the leading Administrator and a second voice, I'll reply to this. Mrmichaelt seems to have blocked you for changing redirect links without good reason. Mrmichaelt didn't really need to research who you were to do the block on you. All Wiki's have different rules on wikia as it is a local level decision on what flies and what crashes.
What I find most odd is your block happened on March 10 of last year and it is going to expire on March 11 2012. Why are you now raising a stink about this?! I honestly don't get your motivations. But if you decide to come back the 11th, you need to realize that this wiki has rules. (Introduction Page) We are not a playground. That appears to be how you treated the wiki last time. Odd that you don't even understand that a article has to be renamed/moved to actually be such. Changing links on redirects yields dead redirects, and being a outsider you should inform the wiki your intentions when making major edits like that. Protocol counts everywhere man.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  20:15, March 7, 2012 (UTC)

Interview With Dan, He talks about IDWs comic series

(Link)

Did we make the IDW references or are we covering they references?!

That is a bit of humor. I am aware we get visits from the gang down here. So tonight your adding all these references from IDW comic 3 which many they looked at this wiki to gather reference images and ideas for references. Was it the chicken or the egg that was first? Anyways, awesome articles tonight. Been following along mostly. Not finding much wrong with edits other than the one link I fixed. I'll do screen caps to to gb II chapter 26 (I am so tired of those lol). Also in a hour check your notes at deviantart in about a hour. I'll share a small bit of a project I'm working on.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  05:31, March 17, 2012 (UTC)

Ha ha. Well, the hope is the wiki provides as a useful reference for everyone. For the comic staff, that's a plus if it helps them. But from what's been said, Schoening and Jones are the big animated GB nerds of the team. I'll try to remember to check, I'm still going through the trivia stuff. Mrmichaelt 06:04, March 17, 2012 (UTC)

Check DeviantArt notes

I just wrote a note about your new edit.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  10:03, March 20, 2012 (UTC)

Replied. I'll be back later in the day, really tired right now. Mrmichaelt 10:39, March 20, 2012 (UTC)

GBII Blu-Ray

Where and should we post the declaration from Dan Aykroyd's latest tweet, about the Ghostbusters II Blu-Ray? Mrmichaelt 09:08, March 22, 2012 (UTC)

I just added it. I still need to rework Ghostbusters II Article. But the section was added and content on blu-ray is there.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  10:05, March 22, 2012 (UTC)

No I wasn't drinking... but can I restart tonight?

Wow, I messed up the date badly there. Thanks for the assist.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  03:59, April 9, 2012 (UTC)

You're welcome. But I'm not one to talk, I just rectified an omission I made on Friday. Mrmichaelt 04:09, April 9, 2012 (UTC)

I am having a fun night

My email address started email phishing some 2 hours ago, and yes Paul and Roy got emails. First time i've had the issue. So I am around, just going ape crazy fixing stuff on hotmail. lol  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  07:11, April 10, 2012 (UTC)

Major bum fest. I hope you got it all resolved. Mrmichaelt 05:36, April 11, 2012 (UTC)

Did you Hear about Nerdyshow: Eric Burnham and Dan Schoening?

This is copy and pasted from Facebook from me...

"Not even sure what to say first. This podcast has on interesting interview/all around good time with Eric Burnham and Dan Schoening of IDW comics and the Ghostbusters Comic series. http://nerdyshow.com/nerdy-show-prime-busting-makes-us-feel-good/

The last laugh it appears is on us at Ghostbusters Wiki as they read from the Gozer article at the very last part of the show (around 1:28)1:29:17. http://ghostbusters.wikia.com/wiki/Gozer

I feel it may be a good time to point to the talk page for Gozer as it explained how we got to all that. http://ghostbusters.wikia.com/wiki/Talk:Gozer

How is that for a fun listen and read?! lol (Devilmanozzy)"  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  07:59, April 27, 2012 (UTC)

Yup, listened to the podcast earlier today. Pretty good stuff in the interview and first time I heard the music. Did a double take when I heard the wiki mentioned, haha. Mrmichaelt 08:10, April 27, 2012 (UTC)

Ghostbusters #9 May 2 still?

I was late ordering #9 and when I did a week ago they said it was to come to the comic store the 16th.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  04:38, May 1, 2012 (UTC)

Apologies, I forgot to update that part. Yes, #9 releases May 16th. Usually, Diamond Comics initially sets the release date for the first week then when it is solidified to the middle of the month. Given now that we know #9 will have 250 RI-B sketch covers, like with GB: Infestation #1, those variants may release the week after #9's official release date. Though I will never see one for sale where I live, lol. Mrmichaelt 04:59, May 1, 2012 (UTC)
I was the only to order a ghostbusters comics here. No one else does. Shop owner sort of digs the interest tho.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  05:03, May 1, 2012 (UTC)
Ha ha, you and I are in the same boat. I'm 99% positive I won't fork over $xx.00 for one the sketch covers on eBay. More concerned with simply having images of all of them for the wiki. Mrmichaelt 05:11, May 1, 2012 (UTC)
Wish I had a stable paying job, then I'd buy about everything in the IDW catalog with the GB logo on it. :P  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  05:16, May 1, 2012 (UTC)
Definitely. But I have never seen a GB: Infestation #1 sketch cover for sale. Probably 250 of the luckiest Ghostbusters fans. Who knows how much those go for. Mrmichaelt 05:24, May 1, 2012 (UTC)

Short Edits for tonight

I have had the whole "Database is down, and now on backup for now" message twice in the last few hours. For tonight, my advice is to do short edits. I lost a good 30 minute edit I was doing earlier so my words come from pure frustration. Bad night for good size edits. Hopefully all this will be resolved tomorrow night. But for tonight, be a good night for light edits.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  01:38, May 4, 2012 (UTC)

That is disappointing. I was looking forward to my slate of edits tonight. Can't be helped. Thanks for the head's up, appreciate it. Mrmichaelt 04:22, May 4, 2012 (UTC)

Geez...

This scene and line came to mind when I checked my email a couple minutes ago. Great job on the mass rollback. I suppose this is a good time to consider restricting non-registered from adding categories if that is possible. Mrmichaelt 02:42, May 7, 2012 (UTC)

Oh, if I could, you know I would have by now. That is one of those things that comes along with open projects like this. I found I may have also rollbacked a different IP that was adding trivia that lacks references and periods. I sort of left it rollbacked cause to be frank, I think the introduction page and a few other policies really covered the issue as good it can be. May be same user that you were cleaning up after 4 or 5 days ago. This gets old. I debated about blocking him/her, but I must assume good faith. Anyways.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  03:04, May 7, 2012 (UTC)

My Tools isn't working

Well atleast for me, which leaves me a bit lacking in controls. I am not even sure if I'm the only one, "Are you having this problem too?"  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  00:59, May 25, 2012 (UTC)

They are functioning normally for me. There were some minor hiccups last night - I did get that 'server is busy please reload' message once and right before I signed off, I noticed the fonts got kinda wonky (i.e. all our usernames went green when SonofSamhain and mine are orange and yours are red in the list of article changes page). Related or coincidence? Mrmichaelt 01:09, May 25, 2012 (UTC)
Yes at like 6 am (CST) I noticed this as I was getting off here to watch some youtube vids. :P Wikia from what I can see both at Community Central Wiki and even noted on they facebook page, had at some point a serve issues. I didn't think that the "My Tools" issue was tied to this. I was actually assuming it was a different issue. I guess I'll have to drop wikia a email.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  01:15, May 25, 2012 (UTC)

What is that mess? you may ask....

I am still finding all the images without a copyright tag and adding them. Currently there are 24 mia. Quite small numbers. However, finding these will really be hard. Anyways the mess in the feed is all the ones I found today. I started at 502 files to find. found 478 files. Next part of that project is getting them all to have the right tags. Anyways that was what was going on.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  05:19, May 26, 2012 (UTC)

Ha ha, yeah, I had fun navigating the activity feed and checking for any edits after I signed off last night. But excellent job so far with the tag project. Mrmichaelt 06:00, May 26, 2012 (UTC)
I have a reply message on deviantart. Not long message.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  05:09, May 29, 2012 (UTC)
Roger that. And I just sent off a reply. Mrmichaelt 05:27, May 29, 2012 (UTC)
And I replied to that. Seriously Wikia needs Personal messages.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  05:54, May 29, 2012 (UTC)
lol. Yes, it does but I guess Wikia wants all conversations on Wikia to be public however practical or impractical it is. Next reply sent. What also doesn't help is a lag on my email's inbox notifications. Mrmichaelt 06:12, May 29, 2012 (UTC)
Used to use gmail, but I kept not getting emails. It would lose emails. Hotmail is what I use now, and it is about 3 minutes behind I think. I can live with it.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  06:54, May 29, 2012 (UTC)
Really? I've never had issues with Gmail. Yahoo, yes. Guess it depends by region? Mrmichaelt 07:17, May 29, 2012 (UTC)
Yahoo..... I wont even bother with them. Nothing with they logo works. Region/server I think may play a part, along with the service your emailing to is.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  07:35, May 29, 2012 (UTC)

Ghostbusting Equipment 101... How is it?

Ghostbusters Wiki:Ghostbusting Equipment 101 was finally added a table. I am still in the process of adding info to previous entries, but how is it, and is it easy to understand and use?  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  10:32, June 20, 2012 (UTC)

Good job, looked like a "chore"! It seems pretty easy to edit compared to similar ones like the Paranormal Database. I'll have to remember to add in info for the 'From' section from now on though. The abbreviations in 'Type' will take some getting used to I suppose. All in all, looks good and it's a start in the right direction. Mrmichaelt 10:44, June 20, 2012 (UTC)
I felt that short hand abbreviations may be the best way to go to keep the flow. I will probably after I'm done with getting information updated on Ghostbusting Equipment 101, will hit Paranormal Database and convert it the same way. It is just easier to use.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  10:49, June 20, 2012 (UTC)
I swore you just updated the PD. Was that last year already? lol groan. Mrmichaelt 10:55, June 20, 2012 (UTC)

No clue. But then again.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  10:41, July 2, 2012 (UTC)

I speak of Heck House

Please read this Blog before editing tonight. It explains or at least states that the mess you see is infact there and its not just you.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  00:14, July 4, 2012 (UTC)

I can't even be able to reply to the blog. The button wont load. anyways....
The single image uploader is working (I think), so yeah if you want then go ahead. I am only encouraging to hold back on uploading images, just because its tediousness to upload one at a time.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  02:30, July 4, 2012 (UTC)
I've always had that problem. I have to open a blog page in three windows and hit the text book and usually the text field loads in one of them or else I have to reload all 3 of them and try again. As for images, I'll think about. I'm on a time table more or less (almost done with RGB episode articles, can see the light at the end of the tunnel-sort of thing) and I haven't seen an agenda laid out by the Wikia crew on what will be added when. Mrmichaelt (talk) 02:38, July 4, 2012 (UTC)
I can confirm I can not comment on blogs or even edit comments. But atleast the Multiple Image Uploader is working. The table thing has to do with using old html tags. This wiki most likely has them. We're have to weed them out. lol  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  11:04, July 6, 2012 (UTC)
Uploader just gave me a error message. :/  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  11:11, July 6, 2012 (UTC)
I wonder if it's because you are the chief admin of the wiki that you can't post on blogs? I'm curious and if you can post a screengrab what a blog page looks like when you try to post. I'm unsure about the table thing, to me I haven't noticed any errors yet - so from my perspective, this issue sounds like a long term nightmare. Darn uploader. The single upload seems to be working. When I did the Orrefors article, I never had to reupload the image. Mrmichaelt (talk) 04:38, July 7, 2012 (UTC)
I take it the Multiple Uploader works? Mrmichaelt (talk) 02:43, July 8, 2012 (UTC)
No, I uploaded them one at a time. No fun, but I can deal with it.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  02:47, July 8, 2012 (UTC)

Sigh - Spam Filter blocked me from editing

When I tried to publish my usual edit with the Spacebusters article, I was not allowed to continue and got a Spam protection filter alert about the collage image that starts with "VampiricAlienGhostStation..." I reported the problem here and am awaiting a verdict. So 20 images are uploaded already for "Spacebusters" but not added yet. I'm guessing this is some glitch from the wiki update or the filter flags very long titled image names. I couldn't even type the full title of the image here on this message so I had to retype it! So perhaps in the future use shorter titles just to be safe. I have my edits saved on a Word doc so it's another waiting game. Mrmichaelt (talk) 07:35, July 11, 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, I removed the image from the collage section and the edit went through. Seems like you have to rename it to something shorter then added it back in. Mrmichaelt (talk) 07:44, July 11, 2012 (UTC)
Okay, I did a test rename and the edit went through. Renamed the image to a shorter title here. Mrmichaelt (talk) 07:52, July 11, 2012 (UTC)
Confusing, but at least resolved.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  07:56, July 11, 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, just one more thing to piss us off lol. I mean, the other collage images had long titles but only one triggered the block? Annoying stuff. Mrmichaelt (talk) 08:00, July 11, 2012 (UTC)
Who knows, I think the term "VampiricAlien" could have been it. Then again, it now oddly doesn't mind the way it is now. No clue.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  08:06, July 11, 2012 (UTC)


New Articles

Noticed you've been making new articles for ghosts and the like but don't forget to add them to the ol' Paranormal Database, too. I think I caught all of them - By-Products of Dreams, Vacationing Ghosts, and Fanged Ghosts. Just a friendly head's up and I might have missed some. Mrmichaelt (talk) 08:20, July 18, 2012 (UTC)

Thanks, and yeah I forgot. I havn't been doing straight new articles in a while, and boy there are a lot of things to consider these days. Thanks for the assist!  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  08:24, July 18, 2012 (UTC)
You're welcome and lol, that is true, lot's to remember. BTW, congrats on the 99th badge. It'll be a really cool milestone when one of us is the the first to reach 100. Mrmichaelt (talk) 08:32, July 18, 2012 (UTC)
To be honest, I have not been watching the badges in awhile. I know I got the 200 day badge finally tonight tho. Maybe one day, I'll have the Ivo Shandor badge.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  08:40, July 18, 2012 (UTC)

There you are!

Ah, so I see you found your cameo in Issue #9. Very cool. Mrmichaelt (talk) 04:05, July 23, 2012 (UTC)

I really wish Dapper would confirm it. But Dan said I was one of the ghosts in that comic, and this guy looks the most like me. He likely used my chin which this ghost looks the part of. eyebrows look right too, so I am 90% sure that is my cameo.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  04:09, July 23, 2012 (UTC)
Work on Haunted America and the Comic Con trip likely contributed to Dan being unable to reply. Maybe in a couple days he'll have more time. I know on June 20th he was penciling #12, he should be just about done given it takes him and Luis about 3.5 weeks per issue. Mrmichaelt (talk) 04:25, July 23, 2012 (UTC)

Just a head's up, noticed a slight increase over the last two days in unregistered users blanking out 2-3 paragraphs with one sentence nonsense. Don't know if it's the same guy or a new type of spamming. Either way, one more pain in the ass. Mrmichaelt (talk) 07:59, August 7, 2012 (UTC)

There has been over the last few days. Either its related to Dan Aykroyd saying there is going to be a gb3 without Bill Murray or its for that Ghostbusters Paranormal Blast game. The spammers... they are always in full force when they see something to feed on. No clue why right now they targeted this wiki tho.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  10:55, August 8, 2012 (UTC)

Question about Wikia Header

There's the 'Wikia' header at the top of each page and has three drop down menus for categories like Video Games, Entertainment, or Lifestyle. After the latest Wikia update last month, did you notice that these drop down's are more 'sensitive' and appear even if the cursor is nowhere near it? At first, it was minor annoyance at first but I wonder if you've noticed that as well. At times when I'm editing, it flashes when I'm clicking the Source or Visual tabs and it screws up the edit and I have to start over usually. Mrmichaelt (talk) 07:48, August 8, 2012 (UTC)

It is a annoyance to be sure. Try clicking the background sides of the wiki when that happens.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  10:55, August 8, 2012 (UTC)
I'll try it out if I edit tonight. Came down with a mild virus on Monday. Mrmichaelt (talk) 04:23, August 9, 2012 (UTC)

Spotlight in October?

I have submitted a request to have the wiki spotlighted again. Here is a link to read my request.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  11:01, August 8, 2012 (UTC)

Cools. When were we previously spotlighted, October, too? Mrmichaelt (talk) 04:23, August 9, 2012 (UTC)

Ever watched "The New Adventures Of Beany & Cecil"?

(The New Adventures Of Beany & Cecil - The Bad Guy Flu) ... If you want a quick laugh, and for the heck of seeing what Darrell McNeil was talking about in the Slimer commentary Rainy Day Slimer/Slimer & the Beanstalk/Space Case. Note Maurice LaMarcheis Dishonest John and maybe the doctor too. Billy West is the Green guy in this show too.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  03:39, August 9, 2012 (UTC)

Thanks, I'll check it out when I get to that string of episodes. Mrmichaelt (talk) 04:24, August 9, 2012 (UTC)

What will article 3000 be?

Been waiting since 1:37 central time. lol Can't wait to see it!  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  06:53, August 19, 2012 (UTC)

RE: Idulnas image 8/19/12

Alright, I'm sorry.I just thought you should have it. I found it earlier on DeviantArt like a couple of months ago & only put it on the Idulnas page on the Villains Wiki first, ok? I was busy for past few months with everything including this month when I've just got a new job & my new paycheck is comin' up this Friday & I'm really not tryin' to screw up nor let anything or anybody to mess up it for me. That's all. & I'm gonna take my absence this wiki for next month if that's what you want & that's perfectly fine by me. I'm can't do everything all @ once & specified every image I deliver to you guys: I'm just a multitasker, not a miracle worker. Right now I'm tired & completely exhausted & I have to go now. Have a safe night & take care of yourself. -_- - Best regards B1bl1kal Don't cha judge me! 02:30, August 22, 2012 (UTC)

I know. I'm not perfect either. But I can't keep track of it all, ya know guys? From now on, the best I can do right now for you two guys & for this wiki is do some correct editing on articles, correct misspellings & correct the size of jpegs that are too big or small. I'm willing to do that for you all with your permission. - Best regards B1bl1kal Don't cha judge me! 02:00, August 23, 2012 (UTC)

Understood. It's a deal. I gotta run, it's late. But I'll do it in the morning. I'll see you guys tomorrow. Have a safe night, dude. Ciao :-] - Best regards B1bl1kal Don't cha judge me! 02:25, August 23, 2012 (UTC)

A little bit of history on the old VHS

If you were a RGB toy fan back in the 80's.... (Link). What do you think?  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  09:45, August 27, 2012 (UTC)

Pretty cool. I remember playing with those Particle Thrower toys. And pissing my mom off when I threw that Ectoplasm on the carpet. I was setting up the scene! lol Mrmichaelt (talk) 10:01, August 27, 2012 (UTC)
At least it was her and not you. Mine dried up. Stuff was cool tho. Paul and I think that was the first AD for the toy line.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  10:03, August 27, 2012 (UTC)
I wouldn't doubt you guys but food for thought... Maybe the air date of that cartoon before the commercial in the clip can provide a time frame? You think any of the toy experts would have knowledge of the commercials, too? Mrmichaelt (talk) 10:07, August 27, 2012 (UTC)
It is in the fall of 1987. That much I know.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  10:12, August 27, 2012 (UTC)

User: spookcentral

Can you look at Spookcentral's Achievements bar? He just joined and I think it's saying has 105 badges but 102 points. Glitch or just all the badges listed that can be obtained? Mrmichaelt (talk) 02:01, September 20, 2012 (UTC)

They look to be all your badges. Strange error.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  02:08, September 20, 2012 (UTC)
That is WEIRD. I think the leader board shows he has at least only two badges so far. --Mrmichaelt (talk) 02:10, September 20, 2012 (UTC)
Lets give it a few days. Maybe the glitch will fix itself. That and I'm thinking this was a mistake in the weekly update today. Me be goin' and tellin' them. lol  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  02:57, September 20, 2012 (UTC)
Groan. What a coincidence, it's one of the issues listed! </sarcasm> Mrmichaelt (talk) 03:00, September 20, 2012 (UTC)
"Sometimes I think the universe just waits for me to get cocky."  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  03:07, September 20, 2012 (UTC)
Oddly enough, everything looks fine on my end.
As of Sept. 20th at 8:53 AM ET (when I e-mailed Mrmichaelt about it), my user page correctly showed I had 4 badges:
  • Ghostmaster - Awarded for making 1 edit
  • Lucky's Demon - Awarded for making the Lucky 31,000th Edit on the wiki! (This badge has been earned by 1 person)
  • Vinz Clortho - Awarded for adding to your own user page!
  • Slimer - Awarded for joining the wiki!
Those are all correct, as I did all of that. I was totally surprised by the Lucky's Demon badge. It was either the third badge I got, and I had no clue that of all of the people to edit the Wiki - especially both of you - *I* would be the one to make the 31,000th edit! And it was for one of the first things I did on the wiki, no less! I'm especially shocked by the little "this badge has been earned by 1 person" tidbit. Being the *ONLY* person to have that badge *REALLY* makes me feel special :-)
For the past two hours I've been getting my feet wet by doing little things here and there on the wiki, so I just earned three more (maybe a couple more by the time you read this):
  • Strugala - Awarded for adding 1 picture to an article!
  • Construction Ghost - Awarded for making 1 edit on a Ghostbusters: TVG Characters article!
  • Tony Scoleri - Awarded for writing a comment on 3 different blog posts!
Again, that's all correct because I did the requirements for each. So that's 7 badges total as of right this second. My user page shows that I have 160 achievement points, and am ranked #13 on this wiki. If it shows the same on your end, then I'd consider the glitch fixed. -- Spookcentral (talk) 03:34, September 22, 2012 (UTC)
I'm still seeing the glitch when I am logged on. The glitch must only pertain to users with Admin privileges when they are logged on. Thanks for the rundown. Mrmichaelt (talk) 03:52, September 22, 2012 (UTC)
I don't know if this is related to the glitch, or if is different glitch... The Lucky's Demon badge I earned was "awarded for making the Lucky 31,000th Edit on the wiki" and it says that "this badge has been earned by 1 person". Yet, I see it also on another user's page! You can see it on User:Spookcentral and User:Spagette (click the "See All" link in each badge box). There's no way two people could make the 31,000th Edit, and if it's awarded for every 1,000th Edit, then it should at least say it was "earned by 2 people" (or how ever many people). -- Spookcentral (talk) 04:41, September 22, 2012 (UTC)
Groan. For me, my badges are showing up in everyone's achievements lists. The Wikia crew knows about it so it's a wait and see game. Mrmichaelt (talk) 04:52, September 22, 2012 (UTC)
(reset) Well My badges are right, but Paul still shows having Mrmichaelt badges. Seems like Paul is the next Megaman. Stealing weapons(Badges) from enemies. I better run. lol  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  10:49, September 22, 2012 (UTC)

Gozer Reference in "Tainted Love"

Image  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  06:51, September 29, 2012 (UTC)

Well aware of it. The line I deleted has no place in the Zuul article. It is on the Gozer article already. In the panel before that one, 'gatekeeper' is mentioned by Egon. I sent an email to TI's writer to confirm if it was a direct reference to Zuul or not. Hopefully there's a reply and I can go from there. Mrmichaelt (talk) 07:00, September 29, 2012 (UTC)
Good news, spoke with the writer, and that page did have both a Zuul and Gozer reference. Mrmichaelt (talk) 02:39, October 2, 2012 (UTC)

Ghostbusters #9

This may be the most busyest comic of the butch so far. Been reading through what I can. Seems everything so far is looking good to me tho I think I'll need to make some articles related to GB2 characters and actors so references have something to go to.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  07:20, October 1, 2012 (UTC)

Well, at least Tristan didn't have to do 250 covers total. Part One's tend to be pretty busy issues in general. But yeah, I had to beef up the Prosecutor page a little in terms of GB2 material. Mrmichaelt (talk) 07:29, October 1, 2012 (UTC)

A interesting idea (about IDW GB 9)

Image used in article.

I want to do a post on the facebook page that will link to Ghostbusters #9 comic in the morning (it'll be the last of the posts which means it will be up the longest). Anyways, If there is any chance you could do a very quick summary of the importance of the comic (like 2 paragraphs or less) and maybe a bit of a review of it too. I will use the image you see to the right for the article if you write this. Accrediting this at the top I will note written by Mrmichaelt (Unless you want something different). Also a Title would most likely be fun to have as well. I want to hope the Facebook page a bit more into the wiki. I am also working on introducing a Merchandise Timeline which I am referencing with some of the recent facebook postings.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  04:13, October 2, 2012 (UTC)

I'll try to whip something up then what Private Message? email? here? Mrmichaelt (talk) 04:30, October 2, 2012 (UTC)
Simply post it here. The problem is the people that are active on the facebook page seem to not notice what the page is based on. I want to try to get some visiting here. It's silly that the numbers keep climbing over there, yet no one is coming here.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  04:31, October 2, 2012 (UTC)
Here's my review
"Detroit Rock City or Bust?"
In May, IDW Comics kicked off a special summer promotion for the next four part arc of the Ghostbusters ongoing series, aptly titled "Haunted America." While continuing storylines sewn from the start, Issue #9, part one of Haunted America was a great jumping in point for new readers familiar with the franchise. Much like their animated counterparts in The Real Ghostbusters, we find the Ghostbusters leaving New York to investigate sightings of ghosts across the nation. However, animated series never had to deal with a prolonged spike in the ambient P.K.E. field due to a time displaced college friend who captured Death in a bag. Still with me there? Translation for the non-Egon's in the audience: More energy floating around, ghosts are getting a lot stronger and the equipment is getting less effective!
In the main story, we find the Ghostbusters two days into their trip on a pit stop to nab a Crybaby Bridge Manifestation pro bono much to Peter's dismay. Apparently, Peter's not too keen on leaving New York nor being cooped up in a modified RV with Egon, Ray, Winston, and potentially explosive gear. They soon drive to Detroit, site of their first case and a locale "suggested" by the series' editor Tom Waltz. The Mayor hires them to take care of some army ghosts getting too organized at the famously haunted Fort Wayne. On a whim, Ray goes it alone and poses as a site inspector but the jig is up when General Wayne susses out something's up. The guys drive in and the action starts up. Contrasting the incredible pencils and colors, thanks to Dan Schoening and Luis Delgado raising the bar a few stories high, Winston shares an intimate moment with the General and convinces him to seek peace in the form of a handy Ghost Trap. However, the warm fuzzy moment is ruined by none other than Peter. Like clock work, Schoening works in easter eggs some more stealthier than ever and when in Rome, throws in some Detroit-related references. The third interlude, which comes to the forefront starting Issue #13, brings the reader back to New York briefly and looks like some competition is on the horizon but just how dangerous can a guy that looks like Chevy Chase be? Luis Delgado had an interesting task in experimenting with colors to set up unique themes for each city. In Issue #9, Delgado gave fans one of his most dazzling feats, the shot of all the army ghosts getting drawn into traps straddled over Ecto-1a's doors. Erik Burnham subtly juggles many plot points without overwhelming the audience and makes it look way too easy.
Exclusive to the Haunted America arc, Tristan Jones wrote and drew his own four part extra story titled "Who Killed Laura Parr?" - a witty homage to Twin Peaks, killer truck driver stories, and other urban lore that comes up in the issues after. Part One gives the reader several puzzle pieces in terms of the overall story but still organically introduces the players - a victim named Laura Parr, a Phantom Truck Driver who likely doesn't have a CDL, and a lone Ghostbuster lost in the middle of nowhere Peter Venkman. In retrospect, a lot of clues are embedded by Tristan that the reader is enriched by the time they pick up Issue #13 and read the epilogue - the story's title, the single playing on the radio, and two posters hanging in the diner. Also in retrospect, Peter's line about the Rookies from Ghostbusters: The Video Game and franchising does lend itself to foreshadow events that start up in Issue #13 while still staying anchored in the Haunted America story with Peter's mention of another famous monster from urban legend. And as a boon, Peter's monologue helps the viewer place this story in the chronology of Haunted America while getting a brief preview of things to come. "Who Killed Laura Parr?" does take a more 'realistic' approach with the Ghostbusters in introducing a homicidal ghost racking up a death count instead of the tried and true hauntings and seemingly insurmountable apocalypse events yet Part One feels like a prologue I would see in a Ghostbusters episode or movie before the title sequence rolls.
While I might be too biased to give an objective review, Ghostbusters #9 was a great starting point for a summer tour and third arc crafted by one of the best comic teams out there. Of ghosts, urban myth, Robo-Cop, and Americana, Ghostbusters #9 is a must read. I say that before noting myself and fellow Administrator Devilmanozzy were drawn into the issue as two of the army ghosts! Mrmichaelt (talk) 05:19, October 2, 2012 (UTC)
Wow, a bit long, but it should be fine. I'll be posting it in the morning after the paper scraps and a collage or two.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  05:30, October 2, 2012 (UTC)

Wiki not loading right on Firefox

The wiki is loading funky on Firefox. It's fine and normal on Chrome.

Here's some grabs of what I mean (imagine me scrolling down the browser and seeing this instead of a normally loaded page): grab 1, grab 2, grab 3, grab 4

So yeah, weird... Mrmichaelt (talk) 05:27, October 5, 2012 (UTC)

The issue is not happening on my side... grab 1, grab 2, and grab 3. It may be a temporary issue on wikia's side. seen it before.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  05:58, October 5, 2012 (UTC)

User Page Badge Bug

Noticed this bug when I was checking on the "More Badges You Can Earn" panel on my user page. The image for the badge is messed up, my current count for each new badge yet to be earned is correct, and the total count for the badge is messed up.

Since your in Extreme Land (better quality)

I'll be looking for special images needed from the first 13 EGB episodes. The firehouse needs to be better mapped out on Firehouse/Animated. A image I recently found from Extreme Ghostbusters Official Website of the elevator on second floor. In Darkness at Noon, Part 1 in the scene where Egon takes the Ghost Beacon from Kylie, look behind them and you will see directions (< arrow/ wheelchair symbol/ LIFT) which point to the lift. Can you try to get screen caps of that (if any of the lift can be had, get them too). I'll look for more of these the next few days.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  04:50, November 25, 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, no problem. Just let me know when you spot something good. I already found one image for the elevator lift from "Deadliners". Mrmichaelt (talk) 05:02, November 25, 2012 (UTC)
I can only assume the lift must go by basement/garage/Rec area/bunk room/and roof. I spotted another shot of the lift area on garage level towards end of Darkness at Noon part 1 when Janine and the rest come in to firehouse to discover Slimer worried and Egon has a plague.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  05:17, November 25, 2012 (UTC)
I think the range of the lift the first floor/garage bay to the third floor/bunk room. The roof was only really explored in the Lotan and Gu-Moh episodes. Anyway, I'll start a list here and you add to it as you spot them. Mrmichaelt (talk) 05:47, November 25, 2012 (UTC)
1) In Darkness at Noon, Part 1 in the scene where Egon takes the Ghost Beacon from Kylie, look behind them and you will see directions (< arrow/ wheelchair symbol/ LIFT) which point to the lift
2) another shot of the lift area on garage level towards end of Darkness at Noon part 1 when Janine and the rest come in to firehouse to discover Slimer worried and Egon has a plague
Take a look at the gallery now, those were the images you had in mind, correct? Mrmichaelt (talk) 11:23, November 27, 2012 (UTC)
Very cool. very much hit what I was noticing!  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  04:45, November 28, 2012 (UTC)
Fantastic, will be sure to keep on grabbing as I go. Forgot how anemic the EGB section of images was compared to RGB and S! Mrmichaelt (talk) 05:02, November 28, 2012 (UTC)


I'm a Glitch Magnet

Wanted to report these two glitches before I forget again - One, I dunno what's going with these phantom "?" appearing in the table code of some episode and comic articles and Two, when I hit the 'Gallery' button I get a blank screen for a couple weeks, I've just been copy pasting instead of directly using the Gallery button on the right and clicking on options. Mrmichaelt (talk) 03:03, November 29, 2012 (UTC)

I honestly don't know how those "?" got in them, but they can simply be deleted and they are no more. Tell me where all you saw them. I am aware of the Extreme Ghostbusters episodes already.
I'll be honest, I hardly ever use the button, I edit raw. That being said, I didn't have that problem when I tried a minute ago to test. Could you screen cap it?  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  03:09, November 29, 2012 (UTC)
The buttons are dead now. Nothing happens when I click them. I'm using Firefox for my browser. Mrmichaelt (talk) 03:25, November 29, 2012 (UTC)
Scratch that, now it works regularly for me. lol. Mrmichaelt (talk) 03:29, November 29, 2012 (UTC)
Saw the "?" when I was working on #16 and/or #15 of the ongoing comic just a few minutes ago. Mrmichaelt (talk) 03:29, November 29, 2012 (UTC)

Wrapping up on EGB DVD

As of this morning, I've grabbed from the 13 episodes that were on the non-US region DVD set of Extreme Ghostbusters. I'll be switching the region back on the player in a few days so I plan on looking around to see if I missed anything in general or needed a regrab. Let me know if you see or think of an image. Mrmichaelt (talk) 11:22, December 10, 2012 (UTC)

I went ahead and posted a bit about this on facebook. Anyways, my list:
Still adding  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  02:23, December 11, 2012 (UTC)
Statue of Liberty is just the distant shot in the first grab in "Home Is.." gallery. That's why I didn't include it. The better grabs are from the series finale. Darkness at Noon, Part 1 - only one lacking really is the World Trade Center most of the others were quick shots, so not sure which you mean. Part 2 - hmm, will get on that. Mrmichaelt (talk) 02:38, December 11, 2012 (UTC)
That is all I can think of. Seems like everything else is covered in deep detail. There are one or two screen caps that may also be useful on character/location articles too, but the point is they are there.
World Trade Center, is the one I was thinking of. Sorry about the confusion there. Sort of multitasking which some men like myself should not do. lol  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  02:44, December 11, 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, I'm holding off on the cafe because I need to compare it to a similar place (that was named) in one of the later episodes. Mrmichaelt (talk) 02:48, December 11, 2012 (UTC)
Anyways I'll be online in a more active capacity in a few hours. I wanted to get this out of the way, ...already getting heat for being online. Family is so demanding sometimes. Glad I don't have a Girlfriend or I never have a minute to myself. lol Later.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  02:56, December 11, 2012 (UTC)

Great, yet another asshole like you

So, I've found yet another asshole, you, around Wikia who edits changes to make them worse, like in my case. I can understand having same link twice in a very small article can be a bit too much, but removing -both- is just making the "issue" worse. --Rautamiekka (talk) 13:46, December 26, 2012 (UTC)

He is a admin here, and even if he wasn't, that sort of language easily will get you instant block.  Devilmanozzy (Talk Page)  14:05, December 26, 2012 (UTC)
Rautamiekka, if you're reading this, there was already a link to Roland's article in the Piper article. There was no need to link to Roland twice more in the same article. Mrmichaelt (talk) 00:57, December 27, 2012 (UTC)
