Who thinks it's time for a new logo? ~WestonWyse~ talk 01:58, 14 March 2006 (UTC)

Well, there seems to be no argument. ~WestonWyse~ talk 16:02, 14 March 2006 (UTC)
I like the logo. Secundomia 13:01, April 22, 2010 (UTC)

URLs

Just to let you know, the old addresses will keep redirecting indefinitely - we are not planning on turning them off. It's good to fix any links or bookmarks anyway of course, but don't worry that anything will be broken :) -- sannse (talk) 16:45, 3 April 2006 (UTC) (Wikia community team)

Good to know. Thank you for dropping by. ~WestonWyse~ talk 17:22, 3 April 2006 (UTC)

Editing lately

Just to make a note of it, I'm removing the "Today On" section from the front page, because I haven't updated it in nearly a month. In fact, there have been no updates to anything in nearly a month. I'm afraid that I've let apathy set in a bit, once contributions basically stopped.

Personally, I am still alive, and still do check in here regularly. I would love to see some new folks come in and really pick up the torch here, but I suppose we will just have to see what happens. ~WestonWyse~ talk 18:31, 1 June 2006 (UTC)

Planning to start from where it stopped

Started by adding the link of this Wiki to the Cartoons and Comics Hub's Main Page. Hopefully people will notice it and join in. Will start updating the Articles and maybe the Layout too. - Shubz

That sounds great! I'm glad you're going to be working on this. Let me know if you have any questions about wikis! -- Danny (talk) 01:26, 1 February 2008 (UTC)

Hey Everyone

After a (long) break from Wikis, I'm happy to say I'm ready to get back to wiki-ing again. I'm also glad to see this and the RollerCoaster Tycoon Wiki are still active. Thanks everyone!--Route 55 21:03, 15 September 2008 (UTC)

Am I the ONLY one who comes here?

New thing

If you add |- ! <div style="margin: 0; background-color:tan; font-family: sans-serif; font-size:120%; font-weight:bold; border:1px solid #FFDF00; text-align:left; color:#000; padding-left:0.4em; padding-top: 0.2em; padding-bottom: 0.2em;">On this day...</div> |- |style="color:#000"|'''[[{{CURRENTMONTHNAME}} {{CURRENTDAY}}]]''': {{#if:{{:{{CURRENTMONTHNAME}} {{CURRENTDAY}}}}|{{:{{CURRENTMONTHNAME}} {{CURRENTDAY}}}}|*Nothing happened.}} to the main page, it should make this.

On this day...

August 21: August 21

(I got this from the SpongeBob wiki.)

Update

Now all you have to do is add {{On this day}} to the page, and you will get this:
On this day...

August 21:

  • 1986: Calvin looks for a turtle down by the creek.
  • 1987: Calvin loses his baseball in the gutter.
  • 1988: Calvin and Hobbes go camping outside and read about the Bog monster.
  • 1989: Calvin pretends he is a Calvin the Hummingbird.
  • 1990: Calvin and Hobbes plot against Susie.
  • 1991: Bill Watterson on sabbatical.
  • 1992: Calvin and Hobbes discuss the Monsters under the bed.
  • 1993: Calvin and Hobbes eat lunch in the Tree fort.
  • 1994: Bill Watterson on sabbatical.
  • 1995: Calvin pretends he is a firefly.

(if there is no data for either the link to the date page or the transclusion of the "Today on" page, it will display different text.)

Replacing links

Should the now useless (sorry) Transmogrifier.org links be replaced with links to the Calvin and Hobbes page on Gocomics?—This unsigned comment is by Serpinium (talkcontribs) at 03:04, January 6, 2012 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

Yeah, that would be for the best.

Digital library

I can only get an accurate digital library of C&H strips until 1990 or so; after that, there's nonsensical reruns for Sunday strips on the Gocomics page.

So, where (if at all) can I get a complete digital library of Calvin and Hobbes strips? Book scans and photos look a lot worse than digitized strips.—This unsigned comment is by Serpinium (talkcontribs) at 23:26, January 18, 2012 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

I've had this problem as well. It seems that, sadly, scans and photos are the only proper solution; although they are of inferior quality.

The 2007+ reruns aren't really helping either. There's a Sunday where there should be a regular strip (December 26 2010).Serpinium 14:36, March 4, 2012 (UTC)

Help is on on the way! Thanks to some recent purchases, I can now date and scan most latter-day Sundays, including strips that were previously missing.Serpinium (talk) 21:56, September 6, 2012 (UTC)

Actually, I've found out that black and white scans turn out really well. It's only color scans that aren't quite as good. Greatguy123 (talk) 12:42, September 27, 2014 (UTC)

Dates in history

Should the "dates in history" articles be wiped out in favor of the templates?Serpinium (talk) 14:01, August 5, 2012 (UTC)

Popularity

I could check, but I'm pretty sure this wiki is the only full, encyclopedic source of properly dated C&H story arcs and snowmen. If only people knew, it could be a lot more popular. So by all means, spread the word on this.Serpinium (talk) 14:01, August 5, 2012 (UTC)

Rules of editing

Should the wiki publish a set of guidelines on how to edit? It would include things such as naming law, standard structures for articles of certain categories and policy on quotes (editors often add in quotes that can andshould be summarized).

Modified Images

I'm going to change the templates so we can split the illustrative modified images for the main and user pages from the regular ones used in articles.

"Today for" template behind six days.
