  • I'm on the fence about whether or not they should meant to apply to the movies themselves and only be used for the episodes when the connected film doesn't have a page yet. Now that we are moving towards giving every film a page, do you think the categories are flexible enough to cover both a film *and* its subsequent episode or do we need a separate set of categories ("Episodes featuring 1940s material" or something)?

    What are your thoughts?

  • When you are creating the lists of riffed moves on people's pages, try not to lose information (awards and such) that are relevant to the person in question.

  • I can see the notability of the category you recently created, but I don't care for the name. It's too glib and not encyclopedic enough. I've been trying to rid the wiki of that kind of stuff, but I didn't want to just change it without touching base with you first. "Actors with less than ten credits" would be better. In the future, if you have an idea for a new category and aren't sure if the name is appropriate, you can always run your ideas by me before implementing them.

    • Understood, though "Actors with less than ten credits" seems a bit cumbersome for a category title. How about Minimal Credits?

    • It still needs to be understandable just by reading (without seeing who or what it pertains to). So "Actors with minimal credits". That's no more cumbersome than "Episodes directed by Kevin Murphy". It's a browse function, so people need to be able to understand it immediately.

  • I think it's best if we leave the "References" section for actual references and not footnotes. Any info you'd like to put in a footnote should be incorporated into the content area, instead.

  • Thanks for adding more images. Please remember to use names that are descriptive, rather than some kind of a code. So, the file should be the same as the name of the invention, for instance. (Instead of "IE-517-SOL.jpg", it should be "NewPlayingCards.jpg" or somesuch.)

    I'm aware that a lot of the older images for the Invention Exchanges are not sufficiently descriptive, but we are trying to do better going forward.

  • Although I don't think it's stated anywhere, we follow the same rules pertaining to tense as Wikipedia. That is, anything like a TV show or magazine "is", even if no longer being produced. You can read more about it on Wikipedia here:

  • If you are making a new category about a film genre, be sure to include "films" or "movies" in the name. Such as "Mad scientist films" or "Space travel movies". This is to differentiate it from any other article about a mad scientist character or some aspect of space travel.

  • Hi. When adding photos to an actor's page, the photo would ideally come from the MST3K-related project(s) that that actor was in, such as a screen grab. It makes it easier to identify them and it avoids licensing/copyright issues. Dmitrioi (talk) 21:16, June 22, 2018 (UTC)

  • Just FYI. we typically don't give pages for single episode releases. I'm going to leave that page up for now, but don't be surprised if I move the information to the episode page at some point. Darth Prefect (talk) 15:16, June 10, 2018 (UTC)

    • I believe this one merits an exception. It is after all a Special Edition, and features considerably more bells and whistles than the typical single episode release.

    • Quite possibly. That's why I'm currently erring on the side of leaving it.
