Adoption

Hi. I’ve given you admin and bureaucrat rights on this wikia as you requested. You now have the tools you need to clean up, customize and maintain the wikia.

Check out your Admin Dashboard, which can by found by clicking "Admin" on the bottom toolbar -- it has links to all your new tools. Please let me know if you have any questions, and good luck with your new (old) wikia! -- Wendy (talk 04:53, October 13, 2015 (UTC)

Congrats, Sig! Now we can keep pesky Snipers out when they try to shoot us down. guyus24, 05:57, October 13, 2015 (UTC)

Secret Service Titles

can you help me with the info box title please.

http://gerryanderson.wikia.com/wiki/A_Case_For_The_Bishop

"Series name" ??

Thanks Sigmund


WeltonArsenal (talk) 12:37, November 5, 2015 (UTC)

It's an infobox problem, so most likely I'll have to step in. What's going on is that the Series Name is just text, not a customisable field. I'll change it around when I can load it up on my computer, my bloody tablet doesn't want to edit it! Technology these days... guyus24 21:04, November 5, 2015 (UTC)

"Characters" Category

Hey buddy.

Please take note that the "Characters" category is only meant to have other categories in it, not actual articles.

Cheers! Jack 22:27, November 7, 2015 (UTC)

Really? I thought i was doing it the same way as on TB wiki..... But if you're right, doesn't the same apply to the Episodes cat.? And others --Sigmund 2014 (talk) 22:34, November 7, 2015 (UTC)
Yeah! Episodes and Categories I think are all, there's one to do with equipment too, but I forget what it's called. Jack 07:29, November 8, 2015 (UTC)
What are the disadvantages of putting all the Character pages in the Character cat. as well? It will still have the list of subcat.s at the top, and the list of character pages will be underneath for those who might need it. --Sigmund 2014 (talk) 11:51, November 8, 2015 (UTC)

The War Is Won

Hello.

Today I have succeeded in removing SniperKing1's elevated rights. I want you, on behalf of the Thunderbirds community, to block SniperKing1 for anything up to six months on the TB Wiki.

I know what it'll mean to you, and I hope that we can now come out of hiding and restore the Thunderbirds Wiki to its former glory.

Cheers, mate. Jack 04:04, November 9, 2015 (UTC)

It will be an hounour and a pleasure to do so. Congratulations on a famous victory. --Sigmund 2014 (talk) 11:15, November 9, 2015 (UTC)
Well, it's all over. Wikia came through again, SniperKing has been demoted, so has Thuum, and his ban is in place. Jack Guyus (Talk / contribs) 02:05, 11.10.2015
Good job. He may have more accounts though, but as long as we have Wikia behind us, I guess we just can't lose. Thanks. --Sigmund 2014 (talk) 02:12, November 10, 2015 (UTC)

Infobox

Hi.

Please note that there is a new, specific infobox for episodes these days: Template:Episode. Can you please use it when creating Supercar episode pages? And perhaps some content, too? Jack Guyus (Talk / contribs) 06:52, 11.24.2015

Conway's Puppet

Hello.

Can you figure out if all these four puppets are the same?

I originally though they had just been re-eyed, but now I'm not so sure.
Jack Guyus (Talk / contribs) 03:06, 12.7.2015

I think they're all the same puppet.... --Sigmund 2014 (talk) 00:01, December 9, 2015 (UTC)
Hmm... It just seems strange that they'de re-eye a puppet; never heard of that being done before. Thanks. Jack Guyus (Talk / contribs) 08:23, 12.9.2015
I agree, especially since they later changed the eye colour back to brown. Maybe they made two heads based on the same sculpture. But the hair looks very similar too..... --Sigmund 2014 (talk) 11:00, December 9, 2015 (UTC)

GFI

Where'd you find a copy of Warming Warning? I can't find one anywhere. Jack Guyus (Talk / contribs) 00:19, 12.12.2015

Frames

Hiya. Please note that the black character frames usually have a drop shadow on them. How are you creating them? Jack Guyus (Talk / contribs) 22:55, 12.15.2015

In IrfanView. --Sigmund 2014 (talk) 23:22, December 15, 2015 (UTC)
Hmm. Can you add a shadow to that? Gee and I use Excel. Jack Guyus (Talk / contribs) 09:47, 12.16.2015
I don't think i can. I've been meaning to ask you though, can you figure out how to add a frame to an image using wikia's own frame-adding technology? I've googled a bit and I'm sure it's possible. It's just incredibly difficult! --Sigmund 2014 (talk) 00:08, January 2, 2016 (UTC)
I don't think there is one. The frame property makes the image a block, which basically means it's a line on its own. It can't occupy the same line as text, which saves using br clear="all" for Trivia sections. Also, you can't have captions on framed images. There's also border, but that's a teensy grey one that I can't even see. Sorry! Jack Guyus (Talk / contribs) 04:25, 1.5.2016

Nonsensical

Hi Sigmund 2014

I was on Thunderbirds Wiki and it said I was blocked by Guyus24 (whoever she/he is). She/he gave a nonsensical reason: "Snip-snip". Can you ask her/him why I was blocked?

Cheers - Henry van Statten (talk) 20:56, January 2, 2016 (UTC)

Pointless Reverts on the Thunderbirds Wiki

Since the turn of midday you seem to have made it a mission to undo all edits conforming to the consensus reached in the Valid Sources forum, which is completely unacceptable behaviour from someone who has been around the site for as long as you have. This behaviour is annoying, disruptive and unhelpful on others who will now have to clean up after you. If you do not change your behaviour I will be asking the administrators to have a look at your contributions and weigh up whether or not the disruptive behaviour outweighs the positive contributions you have made. Canonicity (talk) 17:33, March 28, 2016 (UTC)

Sometimes the problem isn't the edit, it's the editor. I hope that clears things up. --Sigmund 2014 (talk) 01:52, April 19, 2016 (UTC)
What do you mean? Why is the editor the problem even when adhering to the consensus formed/rules generated by the consensus in the Valid Sources forum? God of Thunderbirds (talk) 16:44, April 20, 2016 (UTC)

Unblock

Please can you immediately unblock me on the Thunderbirds Wiki, thanks. Todd666 (talk) 18:41, April 17, 2016 (UTC)

I'm not sure if I can do that. PS How did you find me on GA Wiki? --Sigmund 2014 (talk) 01:49, April 19, 2016 (UTC)
Just made a modification to the address bar. By the way, you're an admin on the Thunderbirds wiki, so I fail to see how you can't unblock me on there? God of Thunderbirds (talk) 16:48, April 20, 2016 (UTC)
I only blocked GOTB for one day, so no worries.... --Sigmund 2014 (talk) 21:06, April 20, 2016 (UTC)

Siege and Block

Hi! You said the Thunderbirds wiki is under siege, but how? I don't see a siege going on. Two, why would my request be out of the question? I just want to help improve and maintain the place as I'll be contributing regularly. Or was, until WeltonArsenal blocked me. Skeleton1699 (talk) 22:18, April 27, 2016 (UTC)

A wiki is under siege when blocked user accounts outnumber regular contributors by at least 10 to one.

How come that Thunderbird 3 never incinerates the Round House when it takes off? Even one of its engines alone would set the building alight. NA$CAR11 (talk) 21:04, May 4, 2016 (UTC)

Block and reverted edits

You do realize that you have been reverting a lot of my good faith edits on the Thunderbirds Wiki? Just be aware that the wiki is a collaborative effort, okay? Guyus24 is another story; he has deleted a page containing a lot of information that took me hours to write up. I wasn't faffing by the way when I wrote it, never mind put it on the wiki.

Guyus has protected his talk page and blocked me on the Thunderbirds Wiki. I have something to say to him: in the spirit of getting on together, never mind him being an administrator on the wiki, can we please keep the number of reverts and page deletions quite low. But I think that's quite high now. Leonidas1383445 (talk) 23:00, May 21, 2016 (UTC)

Why couldn't you have just used my talk page here, rather the Sigmund's? lol Jack Guyus (Talk / contribs) 23:08, 5.21.2016
I don't collaborate with people who put "defeat me" in their user name. I just grind them to a pulp. xD --Sigmund 2014 (talk) 00:42, May 22, 2016 (UTC)

Bogus

Guyus24 blocked me on the Thunderbirds Wiki, obviously, but he seems to appreciate bogus info.

He reverted my edits to the David Lane article, and when I asked him if he wanted the source for Lane's year and month of birth, G24 didn't want to know and blocked me shortly thereafter because I've, according to him, abused multiple accounts.

Here is the source: http://www.checkcompany.co.uk/director/5070056/DAVID-WILLIAM-LANE. Can you readd the correct info? A Knight in Shining Armour (talk) 07:18, June 28, 2016 (UTC)

This is most disconcerting... Guyus never misses a trick, as far as I know --Sigmund 2014 (talk) 02:18, June 29, 2016 (UTC)
I'm not sure it's a "trick", but I can definitely tell you he seems to prioritise bogus info over the reliable source I have provided. Have you checked it yet? A Knight in Shining Armour (talk) 15:18, June 29, 2016 (UTC)
I was just quoting a line from Operation Crash-Dive xD
My firewall won't let me visit that page, it's apparently riddled with trojan malware viruses. --Sigmund 2014 (talk) 01:51, June 30, 2016 (UTC)
Riddled with Trojan malware viruses? I've been on that website multiple times and it hasn't given my computer anything harmful. Maybe it is a firewall-related bug where it thinks some websites are harmful, when they're in fact not. A Knight in Shining Armour (talk) 23:06, June 30, 2016 (UTC)

Filmed in Supermarionation

During Filmed in Supermarionation, model-maker Alan Shubrook comments on when Century 21 folded, saying:

"A company had been called in to demolish everything within the studios. We had guys with sledgehammers just come in and dragging all the sets out into the field at the back of the studio, and smashing them up and putting them into skips. The fact that everything we'd been doing for the past so many years was being destroyed in front their eyes. And it certainly brought tears to my eyes, and the shock of it happening. And the shock that we walked away from the studio on that final day, with a pile of skips behind you, which was your last four years' work crushed into rubble, was a pretty hard thing to swallow. And it left quite a mark on me."

There's just one thing here: the crew could've taken the sets and stuff out of the studios and store them in a loft of wherever else, but they didn't for some unknown reason. Do you have any idea why they didn't? A Knight in Shining Armour (talk) 17:45, July 5, 2016 (UTC)

They didn't have ownership rights so technically, it would have amounted to theft. --Sigmund 2014 (talk) 23:13, July 5, 2016 (UTC)

Reverts and block

I have had my recent edits to this wiki reverted without reason. In fact, it seems they were reverted for no reason at all. In addition, I have received an infinite block for no apparent reason. All of these actions were carried out by Guyus24. A similar situation happened on the Thunderbirds Wiki, wherein G24 told me to put behind the scenes stuff under Trivia. I did so, and you reverted my edits. I then told you what why I made those edits, and you said I should go with Guyus. This time, G24 has reverted my edit to Lord Parker's 'Oliday, despite the fact I was following his instructions. He has also reverted my edits to the page about Supermarionation, which, I presume, is because I removed useful content when I tried to make everything shorter. It is certainly possible I was blocked for my actions related to the latter, although I don't think an infinite block in necessary in any way, shape or form. What is going on? Knight in Shining Armour (talk) 17:24, July 9, 2016 (UTC)

Introducing Special:Analytics

Hey!

So I already introduced you to Special:Analytics over at Thunderbirds Wiki, but I figured here I would offer suggestions as to what to do with the statistics specific to this wiki also.

The tool shows one of your wiki's most popular search terms is Squish. Now I did some digging on this wiki and found there seems to be a couple of episode titles in Torchy the Battery Boy that feature that character. Perhaps it is worth creating an article for them so that search term has a suitable landing place. :)

For more help with the feature, please feel free to ask me questions and also refer to these two super useful articles:

Bad Pics

I didn't mean to put bad pics on the pages, I just added a few nice ones that I found online and shrunk them to the size that Guyus24 has with his pics. Though I don't know why you have them that size or have the black border around them. I thought the Captain Blue one was very good because it was a high quality one that I got it from a birthday card on the Gerry Anderson store website. I just thought it would be nice to add some pics in the infobox that didn't just show their heads and all the officers wearing their caps. I was adding, but not replacing. You'll have to tell me how you place black borders on your images. I'm only hear to help out, not cause an inconvenience and you can still count on me for that. I'm also very grateful you put me on Admin. I understand that the pics probably weren't needed, but calling them "trash" was rather harsh. DisneyFan18111928 (talk) 23:59, September 22, 2019 (UTC)

Home Page

I have a few ideas. Firstly, I think we should have a more colorful picture of Gerry and secondly add a bit more style to the layout so it looks more cheerful and more eye-catching instead of a funeral parlour like you said. DisneyFan18111928 (talk) 02:52, 16 January 2021 (UTC)

Sounds good to me! Are you gonna make some edits? Sigmund 2014 (talk) 22:18, 17 January 2021 (UTC)

Revamp Puppets page

Hi Sigmund, I was just thinking we should make a page pased on the puppets known as the "Revamp puppets" who play more than one specific role in a certain Supermarionation tv series such as Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet and Joe 90. I'm certain that was the page the previous creator meant except the wrong name was used and not much work was done to it. I've already made a great pageof it on the Captain Scarlet Wiki, so maybe together we can do one for this wiki like a large gallery, a table or anything that may make this page special.

What do you think this is: Thunderbirds Supporting Cast Appearances? It took us 7,5 years to make over on the TB wiki. This concept of "revamp puppets" is totally nonsensical in my view. There were main cast puppets and supporting cast puppets. That's all. Sigmund 2014 (talk) 23:11, 27 December 2021 (UTC)
Wait, do you actually think the "revamp puppets" and the "supporting cast puppets" are two different groups of puppets? Please say no. Sigmund 2014 (talk) 23:20, 27 December 2021 (UTC)

Of course they're not, they're just differant names and there is no need for rudeness. I saw this supporting character page just after I sent you this message. They're called Revamp puppets in "Captain Scarlet: The Vault", that's why I made that page on the other wiki. It was a suggestion for pages for puppets like Captain Scarlet, Joe 90 and the Secret Service and I was more than happy to make one for Captain Scarlet, but you have a nasty attitude.
