Animated TV series and movies must be in the period of debut and ending in the animated TV series, and in the date of premiere in the movies[edit]

All the TV animated series in all years of the list of animated TV series must be sorted in 2 chronological categories: By the date of debut and by the date of ending. Meanwhile the animated movies in all years of the list of animated movies must be sorted by the date of premiere chronological.

American Dad Season 6[edit]

Im sure you have heard it before the episode listed season 7 episode 3 shows up on Hulu as season 6 episode 3 so please add a side note if possible as this makes it very hard to find right off as one tends to expect Wikipedia to be at least 90% accurate most of the time when it comes to television shows


Hi! I've been trying to bring some sort of order to the above article, but as I know absolutely nothing about the world of animation, tv series, etc., I'm clearly out of my depth. So I thought I'd bring this matter to the attention of other editors here at the Animation Project who obviously have a better idea of what goes and who might be interested in following it up. Thanks! --Technopat (talk) 23:11, 25 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Project-independent quality assessments[edit]

Quality assessments are used by Wikipedia editors to rate the quality of articles in terms of completeness, organization, prose quality, sourcing, etc. Most wikiprojects follow the general guidelines at Wikipedia:Content assessment, but some have specialized assessment guidelines. A recent Village pump proposal was approved and has been implemented to add a |class= parameter to ((WikiProject banner shell)), which can display a general quality assessment for an article, and to let project banner templates "inherit" this assessment.

No action is required if your wikiproject follows the standard assessment approach. Over time, quality assessments will be migrated up to ((WikiProject banner shell)), and your project banner will automatically "inherit" any changes to the general assessments for the purpose of assigning categories.

However, if your project decides to "opt out" and follow a non-standard quality assessment approach, all you have to do is modify your wikiproject banner template to pass ((WPBannerMeta)) a new |QUALITY_CRITERIA=custom parameter. If this is done, changes to the general quality assessment will be ignored, and your project-level assessment will be displayed and used to create categories, as at present.

I have a dispute and I want your opinion[edit]

Hello, I will try to keep everything short, I am an editor and my question is about my dispute with the editor "Andrzejbanas" about The Super Mario Bros. movie. in the paragraph about countries, the USA and only it are indicated. This is where our discussion began. Because at first I wrote that Japan also took part in addition to the USA (because the film was also made by Nintendo, which is a Japanese company), to which this editor did not agree and asked me for proof, then I threw him this /news/20230418/13/ and wrote about the phrase here's the translation of the phrase "This work produced jointly by Illumination and Nintendo." To which another editor came and replied that "You're right, but I think we should discuss on talk page about Nintendo being Japanese company." Which really surprised me because Shigeru Miyamoto is listed as the producer and he is the head of Nintendo (Japanese) and the head of the American Doug Bowser who is not listed at all (I also understand that nationality does not play a role and that in the conditional Japanese Nintendo there may be non-Japanese as well as vice versa, but this is not the case here.) (I also understand that nationality does not play a role and that in the conditional Japanese Nintendo there may be non-Japanese as well as vice versa, but this is not the case here.) But okay, let's go with that. Later, I sent sources where Japan is indicated or that Japan has a part in the creation by dropping the link To which, after my source, he replied "The-Numbers pulls it's information from IMDb, which we don't use as a source per WP" well, I agreed with the rules of Wikipedia, but I also sent him an interview com/news/newsletters/2023-04-09/super-mario-bros-producer-explains-the-movie-s-box-office-success and this -mario-bros-movie-shigeru-miyamoto-interview-1235572488/ where Japan is mentioned and it is said about communion with creation.To which he also disagrees, I want to ask a question, the source that this editor requires (I really don’t understand how much more sources he needs to confirm), but let’s say I’m wrong here and maybe Japan is not related, but based on his requirements, why then the USA is indicated with a source that says nothing at all about the USA and is even worse and not more accurate than mine (because there, in general, about the countries where they did it were not indicated in the source to the United States, only companies), while when I threw him the same about Japan, he did not agree, and even with the sources where it is nevertheless indicated or said.Therefore, I would like to know which of us is still right here and whether I have the right to enter Japan into the countries of the filmmakers? I understand that such sources are not considered accurate by Wikipedia, but in this case based on the sites above sources to the United States are also without any evidence, he does not mind indicating although there is also a source where there is no evidence, but he does not agree with Japan. Maybe I'm wrong here, but why then is the source in the USA also without any evidence and is this normally considered for him? It just seems to me that everything is unfair (his arguments) I'm asking for your opinion on this situation and I'm not saying that I'm extremely right or anything, but this situation is extremely strange for me and it seems like the other editor does not want to listen to the other side at all and is hypocritical in some way. Because I'm already afraid to say something there, because LancedSoul threatens me with punishment. Xaskithe (talk) 22:58, 21 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It's just that it's very strange that my sources for this editor seem "insufficient" but at the same time he does not see problems in the source attached to the United States (which confirms nothing at all and even less confirms than mine.) In that case, why is it written? After all, this is also an "insufficient source" that does not confirm anything, but simply names the companies who made the film (the same absolutely similar source that I attached to Japan, but which this editor described as "Insufficient") But it's absolutely the same "Insufficient" in the opinion it is also attached to the USA. Xaskithe (talk) 23:32, 21 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I will also add that I am not the only editor with such a problem, after me and before there were also many editors who had a dispute about this with Andrzejbanas and he neither gave me nor them anything really confirming why no one can add Japan to the countries of the filmmakers.

Draft:Mukpuddy Animation[edit]

Hi - I am drafting an article on the New Zealand animation studio Mukpuddy Animation and would be grateful of any assistance with references or information about them to improve the draft before I submit it for publication. NealeWellington (talk) 01:04, 10 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I found one of the actors in an animation Mukpuddy produced were nominated for a BTVA award, but can not find anything useful about BTVA. Is this an insignificant award? There is nothing on wiki about BTVA or in mainstream media I can find. They are cited in a number of articles. Any help would be appreciated.

Criteria for listing on pages for years in animation, e.g. 2020 in animation[edit]

I have noticed on pages devoted to years in animation such as 2020 in animation, for the birth or death years, there are entries for famous people whose voice contributions consist of only one or two animated episodes. It seems to be usually guest voices on episodes of The Simpsons.

Examples from 2020 in animation (although issue is on multiple pages from multiple years):

January 2: John Baldessari, American conceptual artist (voiced himself in The Simpsons episode "3 Scenes Plus a Tag from a Marriage"), dies at age 88.

February 5: Kirk Douglas, American actor (voice of Chester J. Lampwick in The Simpsons episode "The Day the Violence Died"), dies at age 103

March 2: James Lipton, American writer, lyricist and actor (voice of The Director in Bolt, voiced himself in The Simpsons episodes "The Sweetest Apu" and "Homer the Father"), dies from bladder cancer at age 93

March 8: Max von Sydow, Swedish-French actor (voice of Klaus Ziegler in The Simpsons episode "The Art of War"), dies at age 90

Under WP:NOTEVERYTHING, I do not think that birth or death dates for voice contributions of only one or two animated episodes is enough for birth and death dates to be included on these pages. I am seeking input from others. Kaltenmeyer (talk) 19:13, 16 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Discussion at Wikipedia:Content assessment[edit]

 You are invited to join the discussion at Wikipedia talk:Content assessment#Proposal: Reclassification of Current & Future-Classes as time parameter, which is within the scope of this WikiProject. This WikiProject received this message because it currently uses "Current" and/or "Future" class(es). There is a proposal to split these two article "classes" into a new parameter "time", in order to standardise article-rating across Wikipedia (per RfC), while also allowing simultaneous usage of quality criteria and time for interest projects.
