VERY IMPORTANT! PLEASE READ!

I was at my local Navarro yesterday and they had pit stop launchers of Francesco Bernoulli and Raoul ÇaRoule so I added them to the Cars 2 Die-Cast Line and btw I am not lying I don't care if you can't find any photos but this is the new year and they're releaseing new cars and it will be harder to find them at just the beginning of the year so people will not be able to put them on ebay or any of that stuff. Leland turbo 17:31, January 2, 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, I see them both on ebay. But try to not use international packaging images. Thanks. - RaptorWiki (Ryan) - Pixar Wikia/Terra Nova Wikia/Grimm Wikia Administrator 19:29, January 2, 2012 (UTC)

Undoing my edits

Why did you undo the edits I made, I only changed the pic and made a gallery. There was nothing wrong with it. Could you please change it back?? New Captain (talk contribs count) 07:02, January 9, 2012 (UTC)

There was nothing wrong with the way it was - the main image was fine the way it was. Plus you removed images from the article body and moved them to a gallery; there was no need for that. You were undoing the work of someone else, perfectly fine work. Please don't make changes just for the sake of making changes. Make sure the changes are necessary. Thanks. - RaptorWiki (Ryan) 13:09, January 9, 2012 (UTC)

Ok but the changes wern't much. Plus I think the photos I put in the template were better than those one in before. They were still on the page, which is why I made a gallery to put all the photos in. New Captain (talk contribs count) 05:12, January 10, 2012 (UTC)

Why add them again?

Hi, how are you doing? I hope the gallery I made for Woody was okay. Was someone else trying to add more, because I left the changes you made alone. I felt Woody needed his own gallery since Buzz had one that was filled with pictures. Happy to keep helping with any pages I can. Daniel Macgregor 16:26, January 9, 2012 (UTC)

Yes, the gallery is fine. The "Why add them again" was referring to all of the categories being added again in one of the edits. I removed the redundant categories. Thanks! - RaptorWiki (Ryan) 00:11, January 10, 2012 (UTC)

Unwanted articles

Hi Ryan, I just thought I'd let you know that "Wolfman329" is making another page for "Mr. Incredible" when there is no need and adding it to the character page. Either he doesn't realise there is one or he's just making up his own.Daniel Macgregor 23:22, January 15, 2012 (UTC)

Thanks. Looks like Jeff took care of it. - RaptorWiki (Ryan) 00:49, January 16, 2012 (UTC)

2012 Oscars Pool Contest

Oscars12 300x150

Greetings! My name is Scott, and I work for Wikia on their Community Development Team. With the 2012 Academy Awards rapidly approaching, we'd like to involve your wiki in our 2012 Oscars Pool contest by temporarily adding the above banner to your main page. We're just looking to give your users a chance to join in on the Oscars excitement and have a chance to win one of the DVD box sets that will be up for grabs. :) Please hit me up on my talk page as soon as you can and let me know if you're willing to join us in this event, so I can (hopefully) add the contest banner and we can get your users informed on how to enter.

Thank you for your time!

Movie Credits

Can you help me with the credits on my X-Men Movies Wiki. I just need help because I don't really want to watch the long credits and write it down. New Captain (talk contribs count) 10:18, February 29, 2012 (UTC)

I'm sorry, but I don't have time for that. Why not ask someone else to help who also edits your Wiki? - RaptorWiki (Ryan) 11:55, February 29, 2012 (UTC)

I'm not asking for you to do it for me, but I just want to know how you did it?? Because my only option is to watch the full credits which I don't want to do unless there is another way. New Captain (talk contribs count) 05:38, March 1, 2012 (UTC)

Surely the credits are listed online somewhere. - RaptorWiki (Ryan) 10:02, March 1, 2012 (UTC)
You should ask to User:Dvcnut; it's him that made these full credits pages.--Gray Catbird 18:36, March 1, 2012 (UTC)
It may be difficult to find the credits. I was able to get them for some of the Pixar films because I am registered with Disney PR as a journalist, so I have access to their website where they post their marketing assets, including credits. Even with them, which come in a PDF file, it takes me a few hours to convert them to the wiki format. Depending on how particular you are, you might want to just link to the appropriate IMDb page. --Jeff (talk) 04:14, March 2, 2012 (UTC)

I went to the IMDb page and get most of them, thanks very much, I still have to get more for I movie still and I have only done one movie. If anyone could help me, that would be great but I know your on this wiki and probably others so thats fine. By the way, not many other people edit so I'm still trying to get more editors. :) New Captain (talk contribs count) 09:02, March 8, 2012 (UTC)

Mater

Mater IS NOT DIM WITTED! Mater's this genius. But he has this brilliant idiotic cover. He wants people to think he's this goofy idiot. That's his cover to be an idiot. He's truly no dummy. Can't you see he's JUST pretending to be an idiot to fool others? Come on, cut the guy some slack. He's had a horrible past and he's been emotionally abused/laughed at and made fun of all his life. Please don't call him an idiot again. When he was just a baby, he was severely mistreated and neglected. That's why he's confused about life. That's why he's messed up in the head and can't think right. That's why he's frightened all the time when others yell at him. And that's why someone rescued him and took him to Radiator Springs. He lives there for a reason. BELIEVE ME i know it all.

Tow Mater Real Pixar

Um, what are you talking about? - RaptorWiki (Ryan) 02:42, March 2, 2012 (UTC)
Ah, now I see. But I didn't write that, and no one said he is an idiot. But please don't remove it again, because it is correct. Thanks. - RaptorWiki (Ryan) 02:46, March 2, 2012 (UTC)

Hi RaptorWiki. How´re u? Look, Mater isn´t the main protagonist of Cars 2. Jhon Lasseter said McQueen and Mater are the co-protagonist. That was in a intervew here on Colombia beacuse on of the Lightning´s Movie woman is a Colombian. Here in Latin America the Mater´s name is TOM MATE. I´´m not telliing that is his real name. Just i think it´s a good trivia. Is good see how the people watch to other characters different. Some in the name, some in the color or others details That depends from the place. For example, in Italia Mater´s name is really different. Is Carl Attrezzi Jajajaja. That is other good trivia What do you think? We leave to McQueen and Mater like TWO co-PROTAGONISTS and the Mater´s Latin American Spanish trivia? I Wait your Answer Angelo!

Hello. Please provide a link to him saying this, after the film was completed. Thanks. Even still, he probably wasn't being technical in what he was saying, so it probably does not matter. - RaptorWiki (Ryan) 17:07, March 2, 2012 (UTC)

McQueen and Mater are the Co-protagonists of Cars 2.

Hey man, there are twoe referencees, one of them is from the WRITER AND DIRECTOR JOHN LASSETER that McQueen and Mater are CO-PROTAGONISTS of Cars 2. Please, why undo the page if that´s true?

Hi, Raptor Wiki. McQueen and Mater are the two co-protagonists of Cras two. i put two references, one of them is from the writer and director of Cars 2 John Lasseter. I corrected alredy. Please, don´t undo, IT´S TRUE. Thank you!

Not proof. Just being main stars doesn't mean both protagonists. Do NOT undo. Leave the info on the talk page there and see what happens. Thanks. - RaptorWiki (Ryan) 22:06, April 13, 2012 (UTC)

Help Delete

Hi! I'm Cars4ever and I need help, please. I have a question: why sometimes the delete tag doesn't work? Now the page Template:Delete is empty. I pu the delete tag on a page and the tag doens't appear. The category Candidates for deletion now has very minus pages or links than before! Why there is this problem????

Cars4ever 18:34, May 30, 2012 (UTC)

I just tested the Delete template and had no problem with it. Are you using it correctly? It should be {{Delete}} at the top of the page. If you're still having problems, let us know which page it is and we can look at it. Thanks. --Jeff (talk) 23:34, May 30, 2012 (UTC)

Brave Cast Update

There is an update on the cast of Brave: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1217209/fullcredits#cast

I don't really know how to refrence it on the Brave page so I wondered if you could or so. However for the Nursemaid Maudie (who the Triplets steal the sweets from), it says there are 2 voice actresses but I don't know who is the actual voice. JaDangerz 02:22, June 17, 2012 (UTC)

Newt

Hi, I have a question. PixarFan put Newt pages in Candidates for deletion, because he think that pages of a cancelled film are useless. What do you think? Is his teory true? I think that Newt pages aren't useless, because they are part of the Pixar informations.

Cars4ever 12:44, June 28, 2012 (UTC)

Since the film was canceled, all relevant information to it should be gathered and put on the Newt page. Other pages should be deleted, but the important information from them should not be. Thanks. - RaptorWiki (Ryan) 16:58, June 28, 2012 (UTC)

Comic-Con

Greetings! You may already know, but Pixar will be involved with Comic-Con this year. Wikia will have a physical presence at the 'Con once again, and we've created this badge:

Comiccon participantbadge


to remind users of this, and provide them with a link to Comic-Con Wiki. There, we will be updating live for the duration of the event with images, info, and exclusives for those users who are unable to be there in person. Would you be willing to allow this badge on the main page here (hopefully at the top of the right column) until the conclusion of the event? Please hit me up on my TALK PAGE and let me know either way so I can add it, or make a note that you've declined affiliation. You're welcome to add it yourself using the code above, but please drop me a note as well so I can track which wikis are participating. Thank you for your time! :)

Ah, I see now. Unlike Message Wall, talk pages don't inform of new messages unless it's on your own page. It seems like if you are "following" the page it should inform, but it doesn't always do so - and then I've got a few pages that continue to inform when other people leave messages that have nothing to do with me even though I've "unfollowed" them. :P Anyway, thanks for looking into it - hopefully we can get it up by Wednesday when Comic-Con starts. :)

Cars

No problem, I'll talk to her about it tomorrow when she comes in. You're right, in that it doesn't seem like there needs to be 3 of them, but all three have active active admins and communities, and all three have several hundred pages to sort through. Have to see what the team thinks, it's a busy week with comic con though, so progress on it may not happen right away. Two of them have "broken" main pages, and at least one of them looks like it might be in violation of the terms agreement... Also, to give proper attribution to this (or any other wiki) when bringing pages over from it, the import/export tools need to be used in order to grab the edit history with all the user names and their contributions.

Some informations

Hi Raptor! I'm writing 'cause I want some informations. First: recently I wrote a message on Jeff's talk page, can you look it? Second: the user Captairadious has uploaded various images with "real Cars characters' body), I noticed that some of these images were in Candidates for deletion, so I put all these images in that category; I was wrong? Third: The page "Talk: Cars Diecast-Line" is in the category "ASDA Hauler" that was previously deleted. I tried to remove the page from the category, but inside the edit, there wasn't the space for the options of the categories. Fourth: I read my message for the "Delete Help" on your talk page; the problem was ended in one day, but it was the second time I watched the problem. The first time it took 4 days to end. The problem was in the tag. The page "Template:Delete" was empty and If you wanted to put a page in Candidates for deletion, you had to add the page to the category, 'cause if you put the delete tag, on the page didn't change anything, apart this wrote "Delete".

P.S. Sorri for the errors but my first language is Italian ;)

Cars4ever 09:44, July 14, 2012 (UTC)

Hello. Thanks for the message. First, I don't think User:Geosworld2011 is a spammer, although I did delete some of the images you mentioned. Second, yes, it was fine to put the images of real cars in Candidates for Deletion that were uploaded by User:Captainradious. Third, I removed the category from the Talk:Cars Die-Cast Line page. Fourth, I don't understand your question. It almost looks like you're using the incorrect tags? The tag should have "{{", not "[[". - RaptorWiki (Ryan) 14:55, July 14, 2012 (UTC)
I don't know how the problem is started. I think that somebody deleted all the content from the page "Template:Delete", I think, but I'm not sure. In the page already apperaed a wrote similar to this "Template:Delete, error tag not found".

No, nobody has changed the page. I just checked its history. - RaptorWiki (Ryan) 13:06, July 15, 2012 (UTC)

Cars Wikis

Hey Raptor,

So sorry for getting back to you late, it's been a crazy time at Wikia, what with Comic-Con et all. I would have no problem asking the admins (or if you wanted to ask yourself) if they wanted to merge the wikis together. The only problem is that a couple of those wikis are rather large and may not want to merge the content together. What are your thoughts?

Kate_03.png@fandom (talk) 17:28, July 16, 2012 (UTC)

Well, a lot of what is on those wikis is the same content. It is a waste of space, time and resources. Editors shouldn't be seeing that many of the same thing on Wikia, and then have to choose which site to edit. It's not fair to the editors, nor the readers of the Wikia sites. I'm betting a few of those wikis are large because they copied content from both here and from one another. - RaptorWiki (Ryan) 18:34, July 16, 2012 (UTC)

I totally see your point, and I agree that it's a confusing user experience to find separate Cars Wikis. Have you talked to any of the admins on those wikis?

Kate_03.png@fandom (talk) 21:16, July 25, 2012 (UTC)

No, I have not, yet. Maybe I'll try that and see what happens. I expect backlash on any mention of merging wikis. - RaptorWiki (Ryan) 21:41, July 25, 2012 (UTC)

I do have a couple of suggestions on giving credit back to Pixar Wiki. We can make a Pixar-based webring to put on all the Pixar topic wikis or ask the wikis to link back to Pixar Wiki if they have the exact same content.

What do you think?

Kate_03.png@fandom (talk) 00:09, July 26, 2012 (UTC)

That sounds fine with me. I'm just more concerned with there being multiples of the same thing out there; I'm not so concerned with giving credit to this wiki. - RaptorWiki (Ryan) 09:11, July 26, 2012 (UTC)

OK, basically no response after a few weeks from the admins of those other wikis.... - RaptorWiki (Ryan) 09:31, August 10, 2012 (UTC)

Still no response, Kate. - RaptorWiki (Ryan) 17:32, January 26, 2013 (UTC)

Hi Raptor ! I happen to be an admin on the "World of Cars Wiki" (although I'm really not an active editor...) and I don't think the folks over there got your message. Last October, that wiki was taken over by new users. I'm pretty sure they are not aware you posted a message on the talk page of the wiki's founder, inactive since one year... --Gray Catbird (talk) 21:06, January 26, 2013 (UTC)

Can you please copy my message to whoever are the active admins there, please? Thanks! - RaptorWiki (Ryan) 14:13, January 27, 2013 (UTC)
I think we are done on moving information like photos and descriptions on the pages on Pixar Cars Wiki onto World of Cars Wiki, so I think Pixar Cars Wiki is ready to be removed, and keep World of Cars Wiki. --Lightening McQueen (talk) 17:44, November 13, 2013 (UTC)

There is also Pixar World Of Cars Wiki, made by Cars4ever. I don't know about if it should be merged.

Diecast

Why did you delete my modifies to the page Cars 2 Die-Cast Line? I think that they weren't bad modifies.

Cars4ever (talk) 13:47, July 19, 2012 (UTC)

Because they were incorrect. - RaptorWiki (Ryan) 16:31, July 19, 2012 (UTC)
Why? There was the section "Playsets" and I put into this section the playsets for 1:55 scale diecast models, for example, were was the problem?
Cars4ever (talk) 17:31, July 19, 2012 (UTC)
Because they aren't actually die-casts. They are only plastic. And Crabby is not part of this Mattel series. It is a Disney Store item. - RaptorWiki (Ryan) 23:14, July 19, 2012 (UTC)
But, if you look, the playsets are for DIE-CAST (not plastic).
Cars4ever (talk) 15:48, July 20, 2012 (UTC)
I know what they might be used FOR, but it's what they are made OF. If I started adding in all the Playsets they made that did not include a die-cast vehicle, it would be a major undertaking to find them all. Besides, nothing says what they are FOR, is there? They can be used for anything. - RaptorWiki (Ryan) 16:21, July 20, 2012 (UTC)
But ALL the playsets are made of plastic, and they include a die-cast model.
Cars4ever (talk) 16:35, July 20, 2012 (UTC)
No, most do not include a die-cast model. Most include a plastic model, if any. The included model (if any) is what determines if it is included here. - RaptorWiki (Ryan) 16:49, July 20, 2012 (UTC)
Are you sure that it is a plastic model? Very often the !:55 Scale models are made of die-cast. And then, the section "transporters" had the car transporters, that often include a die-cast model, they are similar to the playsets. And then, you say that the playsets are made of die-cast, that is impossible. Can a playset be made of metal? Check your answer: "I know what they might be used FOR, but it's what they are made OF. If I started adding in all the Playsets they made that did not include a die-cast vehicle, it would be a major undertaking to find them all. Besides, nothing says what they are FOR, is there? They can be used for anything."
Cars4ever (talk) 17:18, July 20, 2012 (UTC)
Yes, most models included with the playsets are plastic, except for the few I have listed. And no, I didn't say the actual playset was made of metal. The playsets that are listed have die-cast metal cars with them, and that is why they are listed. They are only listed to indicate what package the die-cast came in. No die-cast, no listing. - RaptorWiki (Ryan) 03:08, July 21, 2012 (UTC)
Hi! I'm writing to ask a question: and these diecast model? Look --> http://www.takefiveaday.com/2011/07/27/mattel-disney-pixar-cars-2-diecast-leyland-turbo-almost-real/. These are old diecasts, and I think that they are now out of prduction. In this model Celine Dephare, that here is called "Chevron" or "Parisian Headlights Vendor" has a body completely different from the actual diecast model and the car seen in the movie. I don't know if these diecasts are fake or they are real diecast models from Mattel. In your opinion, can they be added at the page Cars 2 Diecast Line?

Marsk

Why did you deleted the Marsk page??!! Be sure that this character isn't an invented characters --> http://www.pixar.com/features_films/CARS#Cars_Home/detail/1901/internal/2066?ajax=2/1.

Cars4ever (talk) 09:21, July 21, 2012 (UTC)

Because it was marked for deletion by one of our most trusted editors. Also, it was poorly written anyway. Your link does not work, at least right now. - RaptorWiki (Ryan) 11:12, July 21, 2012 (UTC)
First: might the user don't know Marsk. Seocnd: Also Giulia and Zil have a poorly written. Third: on my computer the link works.
Cars4ever (talk) 11:33, July 21, 2012 (UTC)
And also, Radiator Springs is next to Willy's Butte and Stanley's Oasis. The city isn't next to the Ornament Valley. Radiator Springs is IN the Ornament Valley! Why do you hate my work?
Cars4ever (talk) 11:35, July 21, 2012 (UTC)
The link you are giving does not work, and I failed to get it directly on Pixar.com, but if I recall correctly, it shows the image of the "Marsk" boat in the section of "Lemons", right ? Now I see why you said he was a lemon... Nevertheless, I don't think there's enough information to make a page because: First: Despite Pixar.com adding the image in a lemon section, nothing suggest the boat is a lemon; he looks like a normal container ship, which could have very likely be designed for the deleted sequence in Calais. It's written nowhere he's working for the lemons. Second: Marsk is an allusion to Maersk, which has container shipping activity; therefore, it is unlikely it is the boat's name, but the one of the company he works for. Gray Catbird (talk) 12:44, July 21, 2012 (UTC)
Right! But I think there are some information on the book The Art of Cars 2.
Cars4ever (talk) 12:50, July 21, 2012 (UTC)
I also noticed Maersk when I was searching earlier this morning and I have to agree with Grey Catbird...it was most likely the name of the company he worked for. I also was unable to get to the link by searching through Pixar.com as well. Also, Ornament Valley isn't nearby Radiator Springs, since Radiator Springs is in it. Therefore, part of Ornament Valley is in Radiator Springs. Perhaps it should be listed in "Nearby" and also in town. Stanley's Oasis was right in the town, as can be seen in Time Travel Mater. Also, I don't "hate" your work at all. It has NOTHING to do with who does the work. I am merely correcting, fixing, cleaning up work, etc. Your work lately just happened to either need to be deleted or cleaned up dramatically. Trust me, there's nothing personal to it. OK? Just be more careful of the content you add/change. Thanks! - RaptorWiki (Ryan) 22:35, July 21, 2012 (UTC)
Right, excuse me!

Rod in disguise on the oil rig

Hi! Look at the last modify that Lightening McQueen did on Rod Redline page and post what you think...

Cars4ever - World of Cars Wiki, Pixar Wiki - (talk) 09:33, August 6, 2012 (UTC)

Don't know how we could know for sure if that is Rod... - RaptorWiki (Ryan) 17:14, August 6, 2012 (UTC)
Well, when Rod is in his disguise, he has a green stripe on his side. When Finn McMissile takes the first photos of the pulse generator, that was Rod shown because he has the green stripe, as well as we hear Bruce Campbell's voice (the actor who voices Rod). Also, when Finn goes onto a tightrope over the lemons to get closer photos of the camera, Professor Z says, "This is valuable equipment. Make sure it's properly secured for the voyage." Rod then says, "You've got it." And then, Grem says, "Hey! Professor Z! This is one of those British spies we told you about." Which Rod's mouth wasn't moving when Grem was talking. Also, Rod leaves before Grem and Acer appeared further away when they are about to open the crate with Leland Turbo as a cube. So that was Rod. - Lightening McQueen (talk) 17:42, August 6, 2012 (UTC)
Might be Rod used a disguise similar to th body of another Gremlin...
Cars4ever - Pixar Wiki - (talk) 17:45, August 6, 2012 (UTC)
When we hear Rod talking at the oil rig, we seem to hear his actor Bruce Campbell's voice. - Lightening McQueen (talk) 17:48, August 6, 2012 (UTC)
Ok, if you see at the party, there are Professor Z with Grem Acer and Rod. Might be that Rod went on the oil rig with his disguise and for a couple of days he lived "like a Gremlin"! :D
Cars4ever - Pixar Wiki - (talk) 17:52, August 6, 2012 (UTC)
Yes, that was Rod at the party and at the oil rig. Another reason why this is, is because when Finn McMissile and Holley Shiftwell are on the lift/elevator at the party, Holley said that the Americans actually discovered the oil rigs and pulse generator just before Finn. Holley then said, "They placed an agent on that platform under deep cover. He was able to get a photo of the car who's running the entire operation." Which that was Rod, but they haven't met him. Also, when Rod was captured by the Lemons, the pieces of his disguise are on the ground. And Grem and Acer were unhappy that Rod tricked them real good and they don't like being tricked, which Rod then laughs because that he explains, "Well, you know. I was just wearing a disguise. You guys are stuck looking like that." Also, when Professor Z said about Allinol, "When hit with a electromagnetic pulse, it becomes extremely dangerous," Grem was then aimming the camera at Rod, who then says, "Is that all you want? I got a whole act," which Professor Z then says, "You were very interested in this camera on the oil platform. Now, you will witness what it really does." So that's more proof that Rod was on the oil platform. And Cars4ever, when you said, "For a couple of days, he lived 'like a Gremlin'!", well, I know that when Rod was on the oil platform, he leaves before Grem and Acer show Professor Z the cube of Leland Turbo and when the lemons spot Finn, which Rod already leaves Professor Z before Finn gets spotted. --Lightening McQueen (talk) 12:32, August 10, 2012 (UTC)
Of course he was on the rig. Not sure if that's him the picture, though. - 12:07, August 11, 2012 (UTC)
I tend to agree that Rod actually appears on the oil rigs while McMissile is there. First the Gremlin in question has the same colors as Rod's disguise. It is of course possible Pixar has used two times the same colors, but considering these are used by an important character, it would be a bit surprising to be a coincidence... Second, he certainly behaves in a suspicious way, trying to learn more on the camera, like a cover spy would do... For the voice, I cannot verify it. Of course, this does not give anything of definitive, but I think it is very good evidence...Gray Catbird (talk) 00:58, August 14, 2012 (UTC)

Ryan, I think we have a suspect on this wikia. THEBABAMSTUDIOS is really Red Monstersmasher, and Jake Quake, the ones we kept blocking. Help!! Storm Brakehill (talk) 12:11, August 14, 2012 (UTC)

More proof that Rod is in seen in disguise at the oil rig, with these two photos:

250px-Rot

See the green stripe on Rod.

Pitty

When the screen is not from Finn's camera, there is full colour/color which we see Rod in his disguise is orange with a green stripe. So that is Rod.




So these pictures show that it is Rod. --Lightening McQueen (talk) 15:11, September 23, 2012 (UTC)

Wikia's Time to Play

Hey RaptorWiki,

Wikia is rolling out a fun new initiative for the holiday season called “Time to Play” where we ask our wikis what page they’re most proud of. We want to know which page you would want to have represent Pixar Wiki. There will be an official blog going out on Nov. 1 but we wanted to reach out to you early and see if you were interested in participating now.

If you wanted to participate, a “Time to Play” badge would go up on the right rail of the mainpage that links users to the page that you choose, while the footer will live on that same page that links to hub pages eg. http://www.wikia.com/Entertainment for Time to Play goodies. You can see how the badge looks by clicking here and how the footer will appear by clicking here.

We will feature Pixar Wiki on http://www.wikia.com/Wikia in one the three biggest spots that we reserved for “Time to Play” participants on a rotating basis, as well as a feature on the hubs.

Let me know if you have any questions, I hope you decide to participate!

Kate@fandom 00:00, October 31, 2012 (UTC)

Hi Kate. Let me talk with the other admin here. Thanks! - RaptorWiki (Ryan) 01:44, October 31, 2012 (UTC)
Awesome! Hope you guys like the idea, and let me know if other wikis that you're an admin on are interested in participating :)

Hi Kate. We both agreed that we would like to do this, and use the Toy Story 3 page! Thanks! - RaptorWiki (Ryan) 12:41, November 3, 2012 (UTC)

Videos

Hey Raptor,

To highlight all the great content on Pixar Wiki we wanted to see if you were interested in exclusive video content from Wikia’s Video Library. We would be doing the bulk of the work by finding relevant great videos and embedding them on the wiki.

To draw attention to the high-quality videos Wikia currently has, we wanted to ask if we could update a part of the Community Messages, and create a rotating gallery of videos in a “Featured Media” section on the main page. An example can be seen here: http://ninokuni.wikia.com/wiki/Ni_No_Kuni_Wiki

Let me know what you think!  PORTERFIELD @fandom  01:13, December 11, 2012 (UTC)

Hello. Please let me discuss with the other admin. We'll get back to you! Thanks. - RaptorWiki (Ryan) 03:38, December 11, 2012 (UTC)
Hi, this is Jeff, the other admin. I think having the videos is a good idea, but I'm wondering where you envision putting this new section? I think it should go in the right-hand column of the main page. Also, we have the "Community" tab on top, maybe add a link in there to the featured videos? Thanks. --Jeff (talk) 16:03, December 11, 2012 (UTC)

Finding Nemo 2

Hi, I was wondering if we should create a new page for the Finding Nemo sequel. I know it has information about it in the Finding Nemo page, but we could still create one. I tried the other day, but it said other users tried and it got stopped because "it wasn't announced yet" even though Andrew Stanton has confirmed it. Even the Finding Nemo page it says that. I'm confused.

Pixarfan939 (talk) 18:03, December 30, 2012 (UTC)Pixarfan939

It has not been officially announced by Pixar itself. - RaptorWiki (Ryan) 18:21, December 30, 2012 (UTC)
Just to pop into this conversation and expand on what Ryan said, Andrew Stanton did NOT announce or confirm that there will be a Finding Nemo 2. Yes, he stated he is working on a follow-up film, but there is nothing in regards to where in the pipeline or development this film is in. I'm sure Pixar has a number of films in development; not all of them will make it to release. It may be years until Finding Nemo 2 gets released.
Now, I don't know what Ryan thinks, but I think we can put a blurb on Stanton's page saying he has been working on the development of Finding Nemo 2. But we don't want to create a Finding Nemo 2 page until it is officially announced. Even then, we need to be careful of the page name since Disney/Pixar is known to change the name after announcing the film. This makes it a pain for us if we have to rename sub-pages and categories. Thanks. --Jeff (talk) 01:44, December 31, 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, I don't see any problem with something like that on Stanton's page. By the way, I removed the part about the sequel to Finding Nemo because it was directly copied from Wikipedia. - RaptorWiki (Ryan) 02:31, December 31, 2012 (UTC)
OK, I added a comment on his page. Thanks for cleaning up Finding Nemo! --Jeff (talk) 03:02, December 31, 2012 (UTC)
I don't know if it is confirmed now, because this month, it was announced that Albert Brooks will return as Marlin, as shown on Deadline and Comingsoon.net. --Lightening McQueen (talk) 17:39, February 13, 2013 (UTC)
It has not yet been officially confirmed by Disney or Pixar. Until we see a press release from one or the other, it is not "official". Thanks. --Jeff (talk) 20:15, February 13, 2013 (UTC)

New Disney Infinity video game with Pixar worlds

Comingsoon.net and the Disney website have shown that Disney Interactive Studios has announced a new video game called Disney Infinity, which it will include Pixar worlds and characters, and have you able to do some of the original stories and create your own stories and worlds. It has collectible figures of the characters, like Skylanders. I think it will be an exciting game, especially that I'm a big fan of Cars, and I'm happy that Cars will be included in the game.

Shall we make a page for it, as it does have Pixar worlds and characters? --Lightening McQueen (talk) 17:21, January 16, 2013 (UTC)

Shall we make a page for the game? --Lightening McQueen (talk) 19:44, January 16, 2013 (UTC)

First, you need to be patient with Ryan and myself. We are only volunteers and both work other full-time jobs, so it can take a day or more for us to respond.
As for your question, yes, I think we want to create a page for this. It is a derivative work and not directly from Pixar, but we have separate pages for other video games which I would classify this effort as. Let's hear what Ryan has to say about it and if he agrees, then we can create a page for it. Thanks. --Jeff (talk) 21:48, January 16, 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for the response, Jeff. Yes, I just got home from work. I do agree with Jeff in that the page should be created. Just keep in mind that on the character pages, this work should not be included in the "Appeared in" section. It should only be noted in the trivia section of those pages, noting that the character appeared in this game. Which makes me wonder...Jeff, should we modify the character infobox to include a section specifically for appearances in non-Pixar works? Or do we just leave it in the trivia as it is now? Thanks! - RaptorWiki (Ryan) 00:48, January 17, 2013 (UTC)
My inclination would be to NOT modify the infobox, with my thinking that it should be reserved for Pixar-created works. And I don't think we've had too much of an issue keeping non-Pixar works out of the character's "Appeared in" sections. But if we start seeing issues with this, we could add a new section to the infobox to make it more obvious. --Jeff (talk) 01:05, January 17, 2013 (UTC)
Sounds good. Thanks! - RaptorWiki (Ryan) 01:51, January 17, 2013 (UTC)

Re: Car Wikis

Hey Raptor,

Sorry I haven't gotten back to you. I saw that you did leave messages with the admins of those wikis and haven't gotten responses back. Although we can't merge the wikis without permission from the admins, something you can try is asking them to attribute the content back to Pixar Wiki as the source, and if you are still interested in getting a Pixar webring made, I'd be happy to help you out with that.

Let me know,

References on pages with videos from Wikia's Video Library

The issue is with some of the galleries. There is a width attribute, but in some galleries it is spelled incorrectly as widths. I modified Toy Story and fixed it. I will start looking at other pages, but feel free to see if this resolves the issues. --Jeff (talk) 23:58, February 9, 2013 (UTC)

So it's off.

I wanted to make the Films/Characters/Shorts top-level menu items but the system doesn't let me, so I created the new Universe tab. If you think of a better name for that feel free to change it. --Jeff (talk) 13:21, March 25, 2013 (UTC)

Renaming the Cars Toons page

Hi ! As you probably know, some new Cars Toons not in the Mater's Tall Tales series were released in March. A consequence of this is that "Mater's Tall Tales" and "Cars Toons" are no longer synonyms. Therefore I think the page Cars Toons: Mater's Tall Tales should renamed to simply "Cars Toons", as it now also covers the new "Tales from Radiator Springs" series. Problem is, the page is locked so that only an admin can move it. Could you please rename the page ? Gray Catbird (talk) 00:03, April 7, 2013 (UTC)

Done! - RaptorWiki (Ryan) 12:07, April 7, 2013 (UTC)

Hopper Trivia

That last piece of trivia shown below is factual and very important. You shouldn't have deleted it. I'm putting it back. Please don't delete it again.

Hopper is also is the second Disney villain whose death is forced to edition due to its possible sensitiveness, the first being Scar's demise in order to avoid making kids notice he was being quartered by the hyenas, as it happened to Hopper with the chicks. The third being Syndrome's death of being shredded by the airplane's propellers.

It will be removed again if you put it back, because it is irrelevant, you used incomplete sentences, and "forced to edition" isn't even a phrase. - RaptorWiki (Ryan) 18:22, May 15, 2013 (UTC)

I'm sorry

I'm sorry. I didn't realize. I actually copied that piece of Trivia from Disney Wiki. I didn't realize it made no sense whatsoever. Please forgive me. I am not trying to deliberately vandalize any article. Again, I'm really sorry. Please forgive me.

Foolish Question

May I please ask a rather foolish question? Why are we not allowed to delete our own talk messages on this site after the recipient has responded to them and solved the problem. We don't have that type of restriction on most other wiki sites. On these other wiki sites, once the message has been responded to and the problem solved, there was nothing against deleting our own talk messages, as they were now considered useless. Please answer my question if you kindly would, and I promise to respect your wishes on this wiki site. I am actually a helpful wiki contributor.

GrayWolf2 (talk) 23:01, May 15, 2013 (UTC)GrayWolf2

Just for archival purposes. As you can see, as you look back through my talk page, I have not had anything deleted. I don't remember if Jeff (User:Dvcnut) told me that was our policy here, normal Wikia policy, or just his preference, but I agreed that it was a good idea, so I've always adhered to it. Thanks. - RaptorWiki (Ryan) 00:34, May 16, 2013 (UTC)
I'm not aware of it being a formal policy, it just seems to make sense. When I started here on the wiki other folks kept all the conversations on their talk pages so that's what I did. I like it that way; as Ryan says, it's great for archival purposes. My memory just isn't what it used to be so it's nice to be able to go back and see what was discussed. :)
Also, that is not a foolish question at all. Thanks for being a contributor here on the site! Please don't take it personally if someone reverts one of your changes, that's the essence of a wiki. If you don't understand why someone deleted/changed one of your edits, I would recommend asking them rather than putting it back in. Thanks. --Jeff (talk) 00:52, May 16, 2013 (UTC)

Buster Trivia

Why do you have to say Buster is one of the few "organic" Toy Story characters who knows toys come to life? That adjective "organic" is not used under the last line of the article Scud. I don't think that adjective is necessary at all. It may confuse wiki readers. Isn't it fine to just say Buster is one of the few Toy Story characters who knows toys come to life?

No, because it is not fine because it is not true. MOST of the characters know toys come to life, since most of the characters are toys. Either remove the note you added completely, or change the word "organic" to "non-toy". I know what you're getting at, and at first I wanted to add "living", but that made no sense with the rest of the sentence. So, perhaps "non-toy" will work. - RaptorWiki (Ryan) 18:02, May 28, 2013 (UTC)

Buster and Scud articles

I took your advice and put Scud/Buster is one of the few non-toy Toy Story characters who knows toys can come to life. By the way, I didn't add that last piece of trivia for Buster, somebody else did. I only altered it a little.

Unnecessary

Hi!

I see that you have been reading Aadit.aora's pages a lot. Me too. I noticed that you told him to stop giving the "-gonist" to characters. And, you guys deleted the List of Pixar Villains page. Well, now he did a List of Pixar Heroes page, and a Main Villains page. This guy is really not paying attention to what we're saying, and it's kind of worrying me.


Thanks!

Thanks! - RaptorWiki (Ryan) 05:14, July 5, 2013 (UTC)
After the discussion with Gray Catbird, I was willing to step back and let this be. But after seeing Aadit.arora remove a word from Juanmaseta's message which then made it look like Juanmaseta supported what he was doing, I sent in a Checkuser request. It came back negative, so this is not the anonymous user I was thinking of. Even though that anonymous user and this user have shown up on a few of the same wikis, this is a case of two separate people who happen to be doing the same thing.
I looked through Aadit.arora's edits on the wikis I've been able to find where he's visited. Out of about 260 edits, only 10 were adding new information or fixing a mistake. The rest, 96% of his edits, were trying to define what level of antagonist or protagonist a character was. In a couple of cases, he removed the same information that he added previously, which shows that he can't even make up his mind about how to classify a character. It also shows that he's not adding this information to make the wikis better. He's adding it because he wants to add it.
I have run into this kind of person before. They're fixated or obsessed with a particular item and will ignore what other people say. They will keep at it until it goes beyond being a nuisance and becomes vandalism. So, I am going to treat this as vandalism and do what I can to clean it up. —RRabbit42 (leave a message) 14:47, July 5, 2013 (UTC)
Hello. I have already treated this as vandalism and blocked the user yesterday. Thanks. - RaptorWiki (Ryan) 18:17, July 5, 2013 (UTC)
Actually, I was including edits that happened on other wikis after he was blocked here, and as of today, he has gone to three or four new wikis to add the same antagonist/protagonist information. That's the fixation I was referring to: "I'm blocked on this wiki? I'll just find a new one and keep doing the same thing there."
You've already taken care of the vandalism here and I'll do what I can to fix it on the other wikis he visits. But here's a word of advice: be ready to re-block this user after the block expires in October. The Blocked users list already shows he tried to come back and edit here again. That's another facet of fixation: going back to the same wikis once a block expires. —RRabbit42 (leave a message) 04:55, July 9, 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, one of those wikis that he had contributed on was my Cars 3 Wiki. --Lightening McQueen (talk) 12:24, July 9, 2013 (UTC)

A Movie Navigaiton Template?

I have a suggestion for a temaplate. You could put it on all of the movie pages so that users can navigate back an forth through the films. Just like the Next island template on Poptropica Wiki, a wiki I'm a bureaucrat on. It works similar to this:

<-Previous Brave Next->


For instance, if you click the previous button it goes to the Cars 2 page, if you click the next button it goes to the Monsters University page. The word Brave in the middle could be replaced by the Brave logo. I believe this would be beneficial to the wiki and easier the navigate through the Pixar film pages.

Dvcnut and I had a longer conversation on his talk page, check it out on this link.
 Ultimate iPad Expert Talk  02:52, July 17, 2013 (UTC)
Hello. I don't really see the point of doing that. If somebody wants to see a movie page, they'll go directly there, and not click through a button at the bottom until they get there. When will anybody actually use it? If they wanted to see all films available, they can just click the "Movies" category at the bottom. Thanks for the suggestion, though! - RaptorWiki (Ryan) 09:15, July 17, 2013 (UTC)

Incarcerated Characters

I have a question! Why did you delete the incarcerated characters page? Brandon1500 (talk) 01:14, July 29, 2013 (UTC)

Hello. It's because we don't create categories for every little thing. Thanks! - RaptorWiki (Ryan) 09:11, July 29, 2013 (UTC)

Adding to Special:Promote

Hi. Wikia is trying to fill in Special:Promote for all of our top wikis so they will look good in My Wikia. Pixar Wiki is among our top 200 wikis, and I was asked to make sure you had something on your page :). I left the image you had already uploaded, expanded the text a bit and added some alternate images. Please (please!) look it over and tweak it to better reflect the wiki here - I love Pixar films but may not have chosen the best images or described the wiki properly. Let me know if you have any questions about it! -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 02:04, July 30, 2013 (UTC)

I think it's good! Thanks! - RaptorWiki (Ryan) 09:13, July 30, 2013 (UTC)

Why did you delete my Pittie page it took me three hours to gather all that info.FinFett (talk) 01:14, August 1, 2013 (UTC)

Mctalwolfer on Scud article

The wiki user Mctalwolfer keeps re-editing the Scud article by changing the antagonist's status. I left him a message to please leave the Scud article the way it currently is. Scud was the secondary but true main antagonist in Toy Story, right? If Mctalwolfer keeps this up, you may have to block him for a while. Please get back to me on this. Thanks.

GrayWolf2 (talk) 16:01, August 9, 2013 (UTC)GrayWolf2

I have modified the page so it no longer says anything about being an antagonist. Ryan can disagree with me, but I don't consider Scud to be any sort of antagonist, Sid is. I have also warned Mctalwolfer that he may be blocked if he continues making these types of edits. Thanks. --Jeff (talk) 16:55, August 9, 2013 (UTC)
No, I don't think he's any kind of antagonist either. He's just a non-sentient dog. - RaptorWiki (Ryan) 17:00, August 9, 2013 (UTC)

Block Mctalwolfer

Please block Mctalwolfer right away. He is vandalizing the Sid Phillips and Scud articles again. Apparently, he is ingoring the message Jeff sent him. Say, do you think you could make me administrator so I can block any vandalists as well. I have been a very helpful contributor on this site, and I think I deserve the position as well. Please get back to me on this. Thanks.

GrayWolf2 (talk) 12:11, August 11, 2013 (UTC)GrayWolf2

Thanks

Thank you for blocking Mctalwolfer, whether it was you or Jeff who did it. Listen, do you think you could make me administrator so I can block any vandalists as well. I have been a very helpful contributor on this site, and I think I deserve the position as well. Please get back to me on this. Thanks.

GrayWolf2 (talk) 17:32, August 11, 2013 (UTC)Graywolf

No need to thank me...Jeff stated he would get blocked if he did it again, and he did it again, so I blocked him. He/she deserved it. We have enough help, but thank you for noticing that this person needed to be blocked as well. - RaptorWiki (Ryan) 19:34, August 11, 2013 (UTC)
Also, no need to repeat messages, please. Most of your last two messages contain identical content. Thanks. - RaptorWiki (Ryan) 19:35, August 11, 2013 (UTC)
So are you going to grant me administrator privileges? Please?
GrayWolf2 (talk) 20:31, August 11, 2013 (UTC)GrayWolf2
If you see above, I did say we have enough help. Not looking for administrators at this time. Please continue to contribute with edits. Thanks! - RaptorWiki (Ryan) 21:23, August 11, 2013 (UTC)

New wiki for logos

I have a wiki for logos called LogoLine! Please check it out and you'll be granted an admin and have all rights 100%!

Thank You! Tariqmudallal (talk) 15:01, August 16, 2013 (UTC)

Animals

Hey we need a category for the animals characters. It's completely relevant. Also what's housekeeping? --Kyurem147 (talk) 04:57, November 20, 2013 (UTC)

Hmm, an animal category would encompass 100% of the A Bug's Life characters and most of those of Finding Nemo, and would mix with it a few characters from other films... Abd what would happen with tractors and monsters ? It seems way too broad for me?...Gray Catbird (talk) 16:05, November 20, 2013 (UTC)
Yes, very broad. We have stayed away from these categories, and even more specific ones like dogs, just don't see much benefit. Thanks. --Jeff (talk) 16:48, November 20, 2013 (UTC)
Why did I stop getting any emails from Wikia at all? I did not see anything since sometime in November apparently! - RaptorWiki (Ryan) 01:45, January 10, 2014 (UTC)
Really?!?! Wow, that is weird! I thought you'd been quiet lately, that explains a lot! :)
Did your preferences somehow get changed? Or are messages being marked as spam? --Jeff (talk) 04:14, January 10, 2014 (UTC)
When I went to the email tab under My Preferences last night, it said my email address was unconfirmed! After how many years? Soon as I "confirmed" it, I started getting emails again! Really strange. - RaptorWiki (Ryan) 10:10, January 10, 2014 (UTC)

Email

Hey RaptorWiki. This is Brandon from Wikia's Community Support Team. I sent you an email last week (titled "Wikia Stars") using the address that's connected with your Wikia account, and I just want to check in to see if you received it. Did you? Thanks! - Brandon Rhea@fandom(talk) 00:14, December 11, 2013 (UTC)

  • Hey RaptorWiki. Just wanted to follow up on this again. Did you get my email? Let me know, thanks! - Brandon Rhea@fandom(talk) 00:27, December 17, 2013 (UTC)
Hello. No, I did not receive anything. I haven't received anything from anyone or anything Wikia in 2 months or so it seems. - RaptorWiki (Ryan) 01:46, January 10, 2014 (UTC)
