  • Dear Tipsey  Ferrett,

    I just rewatched the episode "Victor/Victoria."   and I found 2 mistakes in the "error" section for this episode.  I respectfully submit the following info for your review as I do not want to simply delete something on the episode page itself.

    The conversation between Dr. Ogden and one of the women players: (from film time 19:05  to 19:13)

    Woman:  "You are very good, Miss Ogden"

    Julia replied, "I tell you, when you grow up playing with country club boys, you learn a thing or thing."

    We all know Julie has only one sister and no brothers.  So on the episode page righg now, it states that she learned from her brothers - a definite mistake .

    A second mistake I believe is that Julia was referring to her athleticism in general as we witness her being good (in later episodes) in cycling, tennis, archery,, horseback riding etc - all country club sports.  So it would seem Dr. Odgen's remark about learning a thing or two from country club boys apply to her athletic skills in general, and not specifically about basketball.  

    Thank you for your kind attention.

    Sincerely,

    Mabel

  • It's not in Toronto, it's in Hamilton.

  • I have the descriptions for episodes 7 and 8, if you're interested.

    1307, Toronto the Bad- "While moonlighting as a cab driver, Higgins finds a dead passenger in the back seat."

    1308, The Final Curtain- "An actor is killed during a play featuring John Brackenreid and attended by Murdoch, Ogden, Crabtree and John's parents."

    I think it's safe to say these are correct, as good ol' google hasn't been wrong yet. (But if you don't want to input these yet, I understand)

  • Heyo, so I just discovered today exactly what the defaultsort template does (Sidenote: im dumb lmao) and I realized since we have so many episodes/articles beginning with "the", they often get sorted under "T". Do you think maybe it would be easier to sort the murdoch episodes beginning with "the" with the defaultsort listing?

    An example would be, say, "The Glass Ceiling" gets sorted under "G" instead of T".

    We use it over on the Brooklyn 99 wiki and I know every wiki is different but I dunno, just something I discovered today and thought "hey, maybe we can use that."

    Of course I dont know what goes on behind the scenes with all the coding and stuff, maybe we're unable to use the template, what do I know xD, but just thought I'd ask ^^

    • Good question. For me, it is about how best to serve those who visit this wiki to verify an answer or create a trivia question like “How many MM episodes start with ‘The’ in the title?” The way the titles are currently listed in the episode category makes answering that easy. The final decision is Admin’s call, who will check this entry by next week, I’m sure^^

  • Hi! So I notice that after I edit a page you'll often "clean up" (I guess) the format, such as infoboxes. I don't want to be annoying ad have to rely on you to do that every time, so I was just wondering, if there was a way I could do all that myself? It's a source editing feature, right? Is there any way you could explain that to me?

    I'm sorry if this is incoherant I really have no idea how to put this xD

    • Yes, when I am alerted about a new edit I proofread in Source (or Classic mode) where I can see the markup language. The best way to see the difference is in Wiki Activity: click on the small document icon for the page and it will show the previous (markup) on the left and the corrected one on the right. Thanks for asking :)

    • Thank you for not taking it personal too!! As the Content Moderator, I get alerts with every new edit so I check 'under-the-hood' where I can see the markup language, most of the time the "cleanup" has nothing to do with your contribution, rather than that I often find stuff that has gone unchecked or was there prior to my taking on being a CM xD

        Loading editor
    • Ah, so its a Moderator thing? And yeah I didn't think it was a personal "hey ur doing a bad job at editing ima fix up your mistakes". I was just wondering. Thanks for the explaination ^^

  • Hello,

    I have been re-watching all  MM episodes (Seasons 1 to 11) on DVD, and I found  an interesting  fact about young William Murdoch which is not currently listed on the William Murdoch Character page on this site..  I wonder if you  can add it in?

    In Season 1 Episode 12   The Prince and the Rebel

    The bartender Eddie was Murdoch's boyhood classmate  (from Jesuit  school) ....They chatted, and Eddie asked Will, "You still doing a bit of boxing?"   To which Murchoch replied, "No.  I see enough of that in the streets."   Eddie laughed, " Either that, or Father O'Brien beat it out of you."

    To me, this was really interesting because it showed that young William was not just an avid reader and daydreamer (Season 8 Ep 15 ), but he also took up the tough sport of boxing, and got into  frequent trouble in school.   Will asked Eddie, "Did a week ever go by that we didn't see the inside of his office?"

    Re-watching this old episode gave me fresh insight into Murdoch's character.   I hope this interesting fact will be added to the Character page and shared with other fans.

    Thank you!

  • So what's syntax shorthand? I noticed you said it needed to stop being used on Margaret's page but i can't say I know what it means. I just want to make sure I'm editing accurately.

      Loading editor
    • Using episode number inside brackets ie { }, please see Margaret source page. Reason: on mobile devices they show up as markup text without hyperlinks - looks really bad ;(  Thanks for clarifying question.

    • Indeed! Lots more to correct, so helps not to use them. Thanks!

  • Hiyo! I was just wondering if you could assist me with the infobox formatting on James Kirkham's page. I've never actually created a page before and I couldn't figure out how to create an infobox, so I left it blank ehehe ^^'. Really appreciated if you can!

  • Thanks for the text and question. When I get a chance I will review the related pages in Wiki Activity. In general, I do agree that Historical References should be a brief listings, especially if they are linked to off-site pages like wikipedia. In the past, we have created new pages for recurring and/or historical events that have significance to a storyline or main character rather than explaining it under this section on an episode page.

      Loading editor
    • Appreciate it. While I understand that history buffs like to flesh out the details and share them, the Episode page reads a bit 'lopsided' when a two sentence dialogue exchange (reference) becomes two paragraphs with links to other sites without a return hyperlink; A new historical page on this site may be the better option.

  • Wondering if Admin should close Comments and revert to Talk again, since most of the comments are not about contributing to the Wiki, asking questions about the section information, nor making constructive suggestions. Comments are beginning to be more about expressing personal opinions that would  be "shot down" by loyal and steadfast fans of the series and the characters at other venues (Murdcoh facebook and twiiter pages, etc). What say you?

      Loading editor
    • Ah yes, I have noticed this too. Let us wait and see how this develops; If they devolve into warring opinions and/or takes away from the site being an information archive for MM fans, we will return to Talk and close the Comment option. Agree?

    • It's a plan. Will keep our eyes on it. Thanks.
