When Dorothy was changed from a 'redirect' to a reference to Bill's chicks, I'm just wondering if it would be okay to include an excerpt where she names them? Kinda curious about it.
Also wondering if maybe we could just make it a disambig that mentions Dorothy Gale outright and makes a small note about Billina's name for all her hatched female eggs (those which she didn't later rename Daniel) and I am wondering if we have a number for how many eggs there were?
A. Arnold "Buddy" Gillespie, my grandfather, was one of the most prolific special effects artist of his time. His original book, penned some 37 years ago, is now available in print. Buddy was the one that created the special effects for "The Wizard of Oz" and hundreds of other MGM films from the '30s to the '60s.
I would very much appreciate the opportunity for you to consider featuring this newly published book on your website for your readers. A sample of the details in the book, and about the author are posted on the WizardOfMGM.com web site. There are many never before seen photos of the making of "The Wizard of Oz", as well behind the scenes stories and technical details that would appeal to your readers.
They're not "your" pages; it's a public wiki. And most of what I edit is to correct poor grammar and punctuation, and to organize pictures for more appealing visual presentation. Try not to insert pictures in the middle of other things.
I know but when i say my pages i mean the pages i created and the other pages i edited if it wasnt for memost people would nkow about it the person who edited the pages first gave little information and less photos and i have the photos the way i like it so people can like at them at the same time, and i put them in a category called GALLERY not slideshow, i have them in gallery foerm and you keep putting them in slideshow form, im asking nicely. Ok im just upset that you keep editing my photos and the muppet thing people need to know more about the muppets, and some people may not know about muppet wikiand if im putting the pictures in the middle of other things why not look at other peoples editing and the scarcrows page down at the bottom of the page , theres a GALLERY thats what im tryig to do instead of making it a slideshow why not try to correct my gallery and make it look like the scarecrow's gallery.
I'm not trying to upset you, and I appreciate the information you're adding to the Oz Wiki. In my opinion, too many pictures makes a page look cluttered, but if you feel strongly about the galleries I'll leave them as they are.
I added an external link on each of the Muppet pages to the Muppet Wiki, so that if people want more information they can go there.
I will continue to edit "your" pages as necessary for clarity and correctness. If you want to reduce edits to "your" pages I'd suggest working to improve your spelling and grammar so that readers can understand what you're trying to communicate.
Regarding The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (anime), the reason I linked the episode names is I thought it would be cool if we could have individual pages for each episode of the anime series once someone is able to view them and write synopses and stuff. Would this be possible, or is that too much detail? If it's too much I could make a separate wiki for the anime I guess.
It seems redundant, since the anime is based on the book and movie that everyone already knows. We don't have individual pages for each chapter of the original book (or any of the other books). And would the individual episode synopses tell us anything different than we already know from the book or movie?
Possibly yeah. I don't have clear memories of watching it in the 90s and don't have access to watching it now, but I have seen other adaptations that the World Masterpiece Theatre has done of classic novels.
Their adaptation of Peter Pan, for example, was similar at first, but then to pad it out they had stuff like Captain Hook piloting a giant skull robot, and then they invented original characters like Luna and an evil witch and stuff like that.
I'd have to do a book to episode comparison to identify differences and stuff, perhaps not an article per episode or something but maybe a section per arc to discuss what differences might exist in the adaptation as they're discovered?
Come to think of it, since there aren't space limitations, would a chapter synopsis be that bad for the Oz novels? Since the stuff is copyrighted we can't paste the text itself but a brief <1pg synopsis explaining key events could be useful.
The major trouble I can see is what to name them. All I can figure is maybe to continue the numbering so that it is 'chapter' in relation to the whole series (at least the original Baum ones anyway). So like, if the first book had 11 chapters, chapter 1 of book 2 could be called chapter 12 or something like that? +y@talk 23:25, April 16, 2012 (UTC)
To be honest, the books aren't so detailed and intricate that a synopsis of each chapter would be worthwhile. Because L. Frank Baum is so descriptive, most chapters could be summarized in a paragraph at most, and that's already being done on each book's main page (as here: The Marvelous Land of Oz). Also, most of the books are out of copyright and we could paste the text itself, as has been done here: The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (full text), but it seems unnecessary, since the books are readily available. As for the Anime, perhaps after you've found a way to see the episodes we can revisit this. Without having seen them myself I would think that differences would fit into a new section on The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (anime) without requiring a separate page for each episode.
