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

Assistance requested at List of Cars characters[edit]

Hello! I'm here to request assistance in creating a list criteria for the article in the header and also trimming it down. As it stands right now, the article's size is 285,495 bytes, and has several maintenance tags for it for having OR, needing more sources, excessive detail, and now one for lacking a list criteria. I am looking for some help in determining what the list crtieria should be so that we can trim down the article. ― Blaze WolfTalkBlaze Wolf#6545 16:02, 2 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Major problems, and a new editor in need of some guidance. That article was draftified a few times, and it keeps coming back with little to no noticeable change. I think it passes WP:GNG but the sources are very weak, and it's barely a stub. Atsme 💬 📧 17:31, 17 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Proposed split of page for Amity Blight from List of The Owl House characters page[edit]

Hello everyone! I would like your input on a discussion on the List of The Owl House characters talk page, about whether to split off the section for Amity Blight into its own page. Currently, the page draft is available at Draft:Amity Blight, and consensus in this discussion is important to determine whether this character should get its own article. Thanks and I hope to see your comments. Historyday01 (talk) 01:38, 19 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Recently proposed mergers[edit]

In light of some recent drive-by editing by a certain user, I decided to propose some mergers of various pages about LGBTQ animated characters:

Also, if you haven't already, I'd encourage you to participate in this discussion about the proposed merger of Animated series with LGBT characters: 2020s and List of animated series with LGBT characters: 2020–present, which has been stale since Dec. 2022.

Should AI software be credited as a writer?[edit]

The March 8, 2023 episode of South Park, "Deep Learning", which depicts the characters using the AI-based app ChatGPT to write their romantic texts and school essays, credits ChatGPt in the closing credits. Some editors want this listed in the episode's Infobox, while others opposite it. Can editors please weigh in with their opinion at the RfC here?

The discussion that preceeded it, in which editors presented their arguments for and against the decision, is directly above it. Thank you. Nightscream (talk) 15:17, 13 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

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.

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.
