  • Hi, do I have permission to add a template called "DEFAULTSORT" to the bottom of articles with "The" or "A" at the beginning? So without this template, if you have an article titled, say, "The Wizard of Oz," it will show up in categories under "T" instead of "W." Here's what the code would look like:

    {{DEFAULTSORT:Wizard of Oz, The}}
    

    Tell me what you think, and thanks in advance.

  • Hi there Riadse96,

    Thank you for adding pages for Ages of Oz!! We were incredibly excited when we saw them!

    If possible, we wanted to make some changes to what was written for us and also add a page for Gabriel Gale himself. I'm going to attempt to change the text and add the page myself, but wanted to give you the headsup first (as I'm not sure if it, at a minimum, requires your approval or, at a maximum, requires you to do it for us).

    Thanks again!

    ~Ages of Oz

    • As I am just seeing this no: oh yes of course you may change any page that you like to add info and I would encourage those with Oz connections to be involved with this wiki. For example, we had someone contact us to regarding one of the Oz film projects as some info had to be redacted and deleted because of copyright issues along with the announced voice cast being removed from the project (certain images were not supposed to be public as they were accidentally released by the company).

  • Hi again, Riadse96!

    The Wonderful Wizard of Oz wiki was included in the now-retired Book wiki footer. A new children's literature footer has been created, and I was wondering if I could place it on the main page, since this site meets all the new requirements for inclusion.

    Best regards,

    Raylan

  • Hi Riadse96!

    Great entry on the Emerald City Pilot!

    You've stated that there's no wiki on EC series created yet (December 2016). There are two:

    http://emeraldcity.wikia.com/wiki/Emerald_City_Wiki

    http://the-emerald-city.wikia.com/wiki/The_Emerald_City_Wiki

  • Hi, Riadse96!

    A user submitted The Wizard of Oz for inclusion in our movie footer program. Would you be interested?

    Best regards,

    Raylan

  • If you still visit this Wiki, can you please help resolve an argument over whether Ease on down the road should display the lyrics from the original Broadway musical of The Wiz, or the ones from the movie? The other guy involved in this argument blanked a page without a mod's permission, if that sounds like something that would break this site's rules. Dsneybuf (talk) 03:25, February 3, 2016 (UTC)

  • Instead of writing and linking the source within the article (making it looking extra un-credible), please PROPERLY CITE IT; using <ref>insert the link of the source</ref> at the end of the sentence when info is using a source, then at the bottom of the article page, place <references/> so that it will actually act as a proper reference. For link display variations, please check out http://oz.wikia.com/wiki/Help:Wikitext/link_examples

    I am not sure why this wiki had no regulation regarding to formatting, but it is an important aspect when it comes to content; also, please refrain from writing something like "which can't be verfied at this time" within the article; if it cannot be verified at the moment, then it is SPECULATION, which really shouldn't be included on actual article pages; if you really want to share this type of "fairly likely to not come true or will end up having great changes" news, you can consider either just share it at the forum and wait until official stuff has been actually confirmed (btw, I highlighted your thread, it's very much appreciated); or help creating a general template to be put on those type of articles that just don't have much to go on about atm, to indicate that what's on the page currently may differ greatly from the actual end product.

  • Hey, I'm looking through pages and I'm seeing a lot of your high quality contributions; however, I'm curious as to just how familiar are you with Japanese culture? Even if you are fairly knowledgeable in this area, I'm just going to say that I don't agree with your "Calling it 'anime' is in contradiction to the 1982 anime film" statement; the word "anime" (アニメ) was originally just "animation" for short, but its meaning has since evolved; what you can find on wikipedia is pretty much accurate. The thing is, there's basically different formats (probably buried somewhere on the English wikipedia instead of clearly listed like it is on the Japanese wikipedia):

    • テレビアニメ = TV anime
    • アニメーション映画 (劇場用アニメーション映画/アニメ映画/劇場版アニメ) = animated feature film
    • OVA(Original video animation)= direct-to-video
    • Webアニメ = web anime

    When people say "anime", they generally mean "テレビアニメ", what's being aired on TV; and if it's anything else, it would be specified; for example, the 1925 adaptation you are concerned with is stated as such:

    • The Wizard of Oz (オズの魔法使い Ozu no Mahōtsukai?) is a 1982 Japanese anime feature film [...]
    • 『オズの魔法使い』(オズのまほうつかい, The Wizard of Oz) は、1982年公開の日本アニメ映画 [...]

    The focus is the "film" part, not the style of the film; if referring to it correctly, you would NOT call it an anime; it is a feature film in anime style. On the other hand, for the 1986 anime series, the descriptions are:

    • The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, known in Japan as Oz no Mahōtsukai (オズの魔法使い Ozu no Mahōtsukai?), is an Japanese anime adaptation [...]
    • 『オズの魔法使い』(オズのまほうつかい)は、[...] テレビアニメである。

    I will be reverting the name (but keeping the 1986 series as a redirect), cuz as of now, there is, to my understanding, no other anime under the name "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz"; should there be one in the future, then "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (anime)" would then be "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (1986 anime)".

    • Ah yes alright then, but the idea of listing it as a "series" is to make it sound different than than than the 1982 film since both can be easily confused. Would it be the same for "The Wonderful Galaxy of Oz" too?

    • Hi there Richard! It's so good to hear from you! (as of now, you're the only person (who has been on this wiki for some time) to reply my post! How refreshing!!!)

      Usually, the "( )" is only used when there's multiple subjects of the same name; the 1982 film and 1986 anime do not have the same English title to begin with; like stated above, as of now, there is no other anime under the name "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz", but because that's actually also the original book title and the title of various other adaptation, that's why it gets "(anime)" added as a description; only until ANOTHER anime adaptation goes by the same title would it become necessary to add additional info of the release year for distinguishing purpose.

      "The Wonderful Galaxy of Oz" has a unique title, it doesn't even qualify to be listed on the standard disambig type of pages. Unlike the confusion where the 1982 film and 1986 anime share the same Japanese title, The Wonderful Galaxy of Oz also has a unique Japanese title that has nothing to be confused with.

      If you are really concern about how certain people may get confused with one over the other just because they are all "anime-type" subject (to be honest, I almost think this is a bit racist... Is anyone going to get confused about "Wicked", "The Wiz", "The Wizard of Oz (stage)" just because they are all "musicals"?) I can import the {{for}} template (and others... This wiki for some reason is missing most of the default general wiki templates and it's quite frustrating) and remodel the {{Disambig}} template so there's something to indicate on the top of the pages that may cause confusion, and for disambig pages to list all the articles that shares the same title. This will now be on my to-do list, but my utmost priority here is to sort out dupe images, so it will take a while.

      I'm usually really bad with words but I hope it makes sense... Orz

      Again, THANK YOU SO MUCH for the respond!!
