  • Hiya! I got this idea from the Brooklyn 99 wiki, but I was wondering if we could possibly add quote sections to certain character pages? I think it would be a good oppurtinity for editors to be able to contribute in a more creative way rather than just reciting what's happened in the show. Ofc it wouldn't be overrun with quotes, but maybe just a couple of really good ones that have made an impact on the show (i.e Crabtree's potato cooking room).

    Just a suggestion! ^v^

    • Thanks for asking and for the suggestion. Not sure how adding a quote section would be "more creative" – just adding quotes?  MM wiki editors do creatively insert quotable phrases within the format of this wiki, as they have done from the start. Monitoring the accuracy and possible over-run of a quote section would add to Content Managers' task. Are there are not many other sites that list MM quotable phrases? MM wiki is all about recording what happens in the show as accurately (without bias or opinions) as humnaly possible, in the tradition of Murdoch's ethos. ;^)

    • I suppose I wasn’t exactly clear as to what I meant there ahaha, sorry. I’m not sure how to describe it, but I feel like it would add.... idk personality to the pages?? If that makes sense?? The quote sections over on the B99 wiki is actually very well-run and hardly ever overcrowded, (despite none of the pages being protected). Of course all wikis are different tho. I would happily watch over the quotes if it would make it easier for y’all, and I know a couple other editors who are happy to help out as well. (And no, there aren’t many other places that quote the show. At least, not recently)

    • Haven't visited B99wiki lately; How about sending me a link to one of their pages with a quote section?

    • Hiya, wish the MM wiki could go back to being totally open (as it was at the start) much like the new wikis allowing comments, etc.,  – but  passionate Murdochians were matched by MM haters, even 'Julia-haters', along with the run-of-the-mill site vandals! :(

      Here's my compromise suggestion (test starter?): create a "Notable Quotes" section after the "Gallery" section of each episode. With the following format (example):

      Inspector to Crabtree: "Bloody Hell, Me Ol' Mucker!

    • https://brooklyn99.fandom.com/wiki/Jake_Peralta if this link works, it should send you to the main character's page, which has quotes near the bottom.

      I wasn't saying to open up all pages, by the way, so dont worry bout that! 

      A quote section on the episode pages would be pretty neat tbh :0

    • Understood, open pages just my wispful musing!

      How about 'Notable Quotes' placed after 'Trivia' section since the 'Error' section is not used in every episode? Also, most of the episode articles are open pages for registered editors.

    • Got it! So please checkout The Killing Dose and let me know your thoughts ;^)

    • Good example (not the most notable quote of Julia's ;-) the operative word is 'notable'. Can we agree that

      1.) Character catchphrases remain on Character Pages, not this new section? 

      2.) While there is usually one 'Notable Quote' (keep heading singular) per episode, the 'Error' section appears ONLY when there is an error listed, thus the page bandwidth is controlled?

      3.) Format for section uses ":" instead of bullet and no lines inside the section?

      4.) CrabThenTree (and friends) edit and manage Notable Quote section throughout the wiki?

    • Agreed. What say you, CrabThenTree? :^)

    • Sounds good to me! I'm "rounding up" the people who've offered to help. Jut one question: what makes a quote "notable" in your book? Does it have to be meaningful, or can it legit just be George saying something crazy, for example?

        Loading editor
    • Yes, notable is uniquely consistent for the characters especial George's ideas and unexpected but pertainent by or about a character but maybe not the running gags (like for Higgins) – notable quotes can be those live tweeted and shared by Murdochian, (kinda recognize it when you hear). No fast and hard rule for now, you and the team will fine-tune 'notable' I'm sure.

    • Great! Looking forward to all the contributions!

      'Notable' are those memorable quotes that later down the line one asks which episode did that happen in (out of nearly 200)? Or if you remember the episode but can't remember who said to whom or the exact words: Search here and you can find it, yes? ;^)

    • Excellent Notable Quote from your friend, CrabThenTree! Keep 'em coming! ;^)

    • If we're replacing some empty error sections with a quote section, can we add quote sections to pages with errors? Or would you like to keep quotes only to pages with no errors?

        Loading editor
    • Both are permitted when there is an Error, when there is not an Error, let's not have that section? Later when an editor has found a error, they can add that section appropriately.

    • Correct and agree.

    • Awesome, thanks! My "team" and I are tossing possible quotes around for each episode. We hope they're decent :D

    • Very cool and thanks to all!
