Hi, welcome to Barney Wiki! Thanks for your edit to the Splish! Splash! page.

Please leave a message on my talk page if I can help with anything! Huge barney fan (talk) 15:52, May 31, 2015 (UTC)

Hey, what's up? Welcome to Barney Wiki. I'm PurpleDino101. I appreciate you trying to help me out with the editing, but why did you edit the "Barney Through the Years" page? I was only trying to quote how Barney's voice changed through the years. Just watch the YouTube video, "Barney Voice Comparisons", and maybe you see my point because that's where I got the idea. Thanks.

Thanks for the tip, and I'm always happy to help a friend. You know, maybe we can get together some time and chat. Does that sound alright?

Regarding Barney Throughthe Years

Oh, COME ON!! Now, what's wrong? Why did you undo it THIS time? I was just adding a present picture with the front of his face. Please explain why you did because this is getting really annoying.

Regarding Riff Trough The Years

Hey man,Just as a head's up we appricate you thinking ahead for a "Riff Trough The Years" but the thing is we don't need one (At least not yet) Riff has always had the same costume and half of the things listed are things arn't really about the costume but more the character's progression If the show ever comes back and if they make a new Riff costume that's fine but for right now can we please let the orange bud-ity bud not have a "Trough The Years" page? Thanks =)

Barney's Road Tunes

Hey Barneymiller123abc, I just saw your custom album "Barney's Road Tunes" on your YouTube channel and it's really awesome! Your Barney voice sounds great, too! I'd suggest for you to audition to be the new Barney voice but I imagine they already have people casted for the reboot by now. But still, great work! ---BarneyBJBabyBopandRiffFan

A reboot of "Barney & Friends"

I can't believe a reboot of "Barney & Friends" is set to air in next year 2017!

I don't think it'll be a "reboot" persay, but rather a revival. Either way, I'm glad the series is finally coming back. --LyrickStudiosFan93 (talk) 20:26, December 5, 2016 (UTC)

Hey, BM123, when do you think the Barney reboot will air because I'm just waiting and waiting.

Edit for Numbers! Numbers!

I loved your edit on Numbers! Numbers!. Thank you for working so hard. :-)

Happy Birthday, Barney gallery

I did it on that page but the images were to much so I thought of doing it on a separate page since they were to much. I thought of how the images should be instead of it being every shot I thought it would be best to do only certain angles from the camera. I would only do multiple if it was necessary and I'm trying not to go overboard like last time. Their shouldn't be a separate page like their are on other wikis. I_Helfrich/Kidsmtvslv

The "season" category and the "generation" category on home video pages are purely subjective. We don't need so many categories on each page. Simplifying the number of categories keeps this wiki more organized. Barneyandhisfriends (talk) 01:40, december 5, 2016 (UTC)

Barney Home Video is a brand peter name peter company

Not really no (Also the introduction was done by wikia not me......It's automated to have admins welcome new members =) )

I have no idea..........I'll bring your question to SonicHOG =) Huge barney fan (talk) 22:48, december 5, 2016 (UTC)

I didn't lock the articalHuge barney fan (talk) 22:25, december 5, 2016 (UTC)


  1. I am not locking all the pages. At one point, this wiki ballooned to over 4000 articles (half of which had little to no content). That is totally unacceptable, revealing that this wiki needs some basic restrictions. Even the gallery is a mess, with far too many pictures.
  1. We can finally agree that "Barney Home Video" is not a company. So, how long was that "company" page up? Far too long. All I am asking is for some consistancy and structure to this wiki. Messing with the categories is the wrong way to accomplish this goal.
  1. The generation/era pages are gone, so why does the category still exist? The category is unofficial and ambiguous. I've mentioned this many times; and sorry to say, we should not be categorizing anything by generation. Fan talk is oppionated, which is fine. However, this wiki is an encylopedia of Barney information, ie factual information. The pages on this wiki should reflect this.
  1. Only the episodes, songs and characters should have a "season" category, with some restrictions.
    1. The song must have been written during the production of the season.
      1. The Rainbow Song is a Season 1 song, Castles So High is not
    1. The character must have appeared during the season.
      1. Stephen is a Season 4 character, Miss Kepler is not.
  1. Home videos should not have the season category as it is still too ambiguous. I've already listed examples prior.
  1. I thought adding "runtime" to the Home Video template was a great addition. The distributor is superfluous information. As for the production company, very few videos were produced by other companies. Thus, making it useless information.
  1. Feedback is important. However, without getting any feedback, I assume that other users are fine with these changes. Barneyandhisfriends (talk) 04:35, June 26, 2016 (UTC)

Vandalism is getting out of control

It's no use, the vandalism attacks has gone this far enough on this wiki and the requests to becoming an admin isn't working well since the recent admin comes here rarely. I was thinking about doing community consensus to gain these rights for promotion of new admins to cleanup any future vandalism on the Barney wiki and keep it maintained. I've made a blog of it here.

Regarding S'mores

It's on there..........Under Barney's Beach Party ;) (Any rename and/or rerelease unless if it's a episode video with 2 or more episodes get's removed from the list since their virtually the same thing)

Also I deeply aplogize for not getting rid of that error on Season 13 I'll get to it when I can I've just been busy with proecting a bunch of articals (I've been meaning to correct a few videos/episodes...There's alot of errors regarding writers (For example Stephen White is credited for writing "You Can Be Anything" on the artical When it was actually Mark S Bernthal) =) Huge barney fan (talk) 16:04, July 27, 2016 (UTC)

Hi, should we have a page with transcripts of fundings that aired before and after the show during the original PBS run?

Barney's Animal ABCs

Hey Barneymiller123abc, since your an admin I just want to tell you an error I found on the page for Animal ABCs. For Over in the Meadow it says the clip is from Ducks and Fish which it wasn't even in the episode. It should be changed to Hearing. Can you please fix that? :) --BarneyBJBabyBopandRiffFan

Regarding Custom Barney Wiki

When you're done reading this, please click on the link. Hi! This is PurpleDino101. How are you? I need some help editing . Im trying to make episodes for a fan-made series called Barney & Dora the Explorer, and I don't know if I can do it all on my own. Could you please help make episodes or at least give me some ideas for valuble life lessons for episodes? Thank you.

BTW, Are you a guy or gal? It really doesn't matter much to me, but I just want to know.

Thanks for the help and advice. Though, there's just a few problems with the Crossover that another user thought of in contrast to the one I had in mind:

  • I'm confused about the airdates between Barney's series and Dora's series.
  • I'm not sure how this series should start; I've different ideas, but I'm not sure which is right.
  • There aren't many Mexican songs on Barney.

What should I do?

Feb. 7, 2017 by PurpleDino101


Incase you haven't double checked before unblocking, Jacobmills815 has been putting incorrect information on articles and unnecessarily moving pages such as "Kids for Character" that debuted in 1996 and not in 2006. If you can, could you take action against him for this type of nonsense?Muzzarino 03:35, February 24, 2017 (UTC)

You know since I'm not an administrator on this wiki anymore, but if I still was an administrator, I probably wouldn't give Jacobmills815 or Hannahlovebarneyandfriends another chance. I'm not saying that to brag, I just said that to give the administrators a helpful advice. --Rodney16 (talk) 08:36, February 24, 2017 (UTC)

Regarding Baby bop Through the Years

Why did you remove the 1993 Baby bop costume? Even though they look about the same, there IS a difference in color and ear angle.

I don't get it. You've already added two more pictures, so what am I supposed to do?

PurpleDino101 9:49 March 16, 2017


The 1992 page is a mess mostly because of the changes I made regarding the images I had to reupload. Can you fix Growing by adding either these two images.


I Need Your Help

Hey, it's me, PurpleDino101. I really need you this time!!!! "Hugebarneyfan" is roaming around keeping people from editing pages. How can I change the protection back to the way it was? This dude is really getting on my nerves---he even blocked "Barney Through the Years", and I was just about to edit that page. >:(


Hey, I've got an idea, dude! I'll try requesting, but if that doesn't work we'll work on the Through the Years pages on Custom Barney Wiki instead. I'll your help with the templates and stuff, too. What do you say?

Hey. Um... if I were you as a administrator (which I should've NEVER snapped at people back then) I wouldn't give Hannahlovesbarneyandfriends another chance on this wikia.

Also, PurpleDinoDude101 asked SonicHOG if he can adopt this wiki by adopting some rules and making sure that nobody vandalizes this wikia. --Rodney16 (talk) 08:16, June 15, 2017 (UTC)

What makes me think that Hannah is gonna return? Well, she keeps undoing my edits harassing by saying "Stop this!" or "Stop it!" to me like she's kinda bossy. And saying "I'm sorry" to me to many times? You only say "I'm sorry" once, not like every time. Like Mikey on facebook said "It's not OK to make a mistake and say "I'm sorry" too many times.". So what I would've done was I would've changed Hannah's blocking from 1 year, to permanent. --Rodney16 (talk) 07:24, June 20, 2017 (UTC)

About the Barney Reboot

I saw your Barney podcast involving the reboot, the Raptors, Barney's Greatest Hits, AMA, and his 25th Anniversary: but I'm still anxious to know how this reboot will go and when (exactly) it will air. By the way, "Playground Fun" is just a bunch of old S7-8 episodes wrapped up in one. If you ever find out, could you let me know, please, buddy? You're a pretty good MC. And THANK YOU for understanding how I feel for Barney. I know how you feel, because I've had to tell some of my peers the EXACT SAME thing. And it's like people only think of I Love You when they think of the poor guy, you know.

Things to add to More Barney Songs

Hey Barneymiller123abc, I got a few questions about the page for More Barney Songs. First, do you think we should add Adam Brown in the additional costume performers section since he was BJ in E-I-E-I-O? And second, I noticed in the end credits for the video that Baby Bop's name was misspelled as Baby Bob, but near the very end of the credits. Could you please add that too? Thanks :) --BarneyBJBabyBopandRiffFan

Hey man, first, I just want to tell you that on the Puppy Love page, BJ isn't in the cast section. The page is locked, so I can't add that.

Now with that out of the way......we can't keep up the Hannah thing much longer. I hate to be "one of those people", but she's gotta go. I noticed that she's deleted some important facts on certain pages, adds stuff, and won't even finish it. It's rediculous, and I don't have the time to sit down and change everything back.....especially if she's just gonna do more damage while we try to fix it. I just needed to get that off my chest. --BarneyBJBabyBopandRiffFan

Now, that we got the UK airing that contained a re-dubbed version of "Everyone is Special" (the lyrics remained the same as the original's 1992 version) I think it's time to add that fact in either trivia section or the international edits section. --Rodney16 (talk) 18:49, August 31, 2017 (UTC)

Why Barney appealed to me

Hello, Barney Wiki Administrators,

As a fan of Barney from childhood, I am grateful to have finally found a place to convene with other like-minded individulals who shares in my indulgence of the mystical purple reptile that the common person on the street would rather condemn.

I would like to describe the main reason Barney was appealing to me back in the day: he wasn't chiefly targeting EITHER male or female. Think about it: shows back in the day like Strawberry Shortcake, Bratz or Power Rangers and Transformers, they were all chiefly made to cater to young audiences of male and female, and growing up back then, I was a little too sensitive for action shows, but not that sensitive to the point of Strawberry Shortcake levels...

Having said that, that is the reason why Barney appealed to me; he was a dinosaur, a Tyrannosaurus Rex, to be precise, appealing to males, and he was purple, a color normally associated with females, but he was never effeminate. The show doesn't really focus or place emphasis upon the era he came from, the Cretacious period, rather than place focus upon the rather surreal existence of said creature.

From what I gather from the franchise, Barney is this rare, mythical childhood creature akin to that of the Tooth Fairy, a Unicorn, Bigfoot, Dragons, and the like. Like Aladdin summoning a genie by rubbing the magic lamp, Barney is summoned through anyone's imagination. The show seems to be based more on fantasy.

Another thing that made me like Barney was that he had *magic powers*. What kept me coming back to the show was seeing what kind of strange and exciting things this creature could do, from hosting a game show, instantaneous costume changes, transforming a toy rocket into a real-life magical spaceship for lunar travel, to transporting people to various places, and transforming an average school playground into a gigantic game board complete with set pieces.

Barney's role is similar to that of a genie; ever since the character's establishment in The Backyard Gang videos of the late 1980s, the character always had an aim to please. A more prominent example would be in "Three Wishes"(1988), the titular dinosaur grants the children three wishes to be transported to any place of their desires. More current examples include Let's Play School(1999), where Barney, through Baby Bop's imagination, sends a wave of golden stardust straight onto the school, and transforms it into this cartoony, surrealistic version of itself, and Adventure Bus(1997), where Barney grants all 4 children's deepest desires through means of a magically altered bus, where we learn that his aspiration in life is to be a bus driver and transport people to their destinations.

Some of the shots in the franchise are visually memorable, like in Imagination Island(1994), where Barney was piloting the balloon-propelled ship peacefully into the sunset, singing Just Imagine, or the end of Adventure Bus, where the children say their farewells to Barney, which because the camera was pointed at the school, away from the gate, and the way the characters were shaded, made it feel like it was sunset, giving off a very satisfying end.

So, that's my little essay on why the character appealed to me as a young child. Can you tell me why the character appealed to you when you were a kid? (Animighty (talk) 03:42, September 5, 2018 (UTC)

My favorite Barney composer

Back in the day, when I was first exposed to the show, the music was being composed by a man named Joe Phillips. Now, this was back in the 2nd Generation of the series, around which I was born. I'll never forget that imagery which opened up the series, the stop-motion purple TV with the bobbing feet, zooming into the animated "static" made up of construction paper, crupmpled paper, and seeing the silhouetted pink dinosaur marching with a line of kids to start the series, which, in my opinion, is probably the most iconic Barney intro in its run.

I couldn't really get into Bob Singleton's music at first, because it didn't have a lot of the emphasis upon the drums, clarinets, trumpets and horn instruments that Phillips music had. It seemed to be comprised of flutes, accordions, and harmonicas and pianos, which kind of repulsed me a bit. It could get really ambitious if it wanted to like in Imagination Island, and Night Before Christmas, but was mostly too outdated for my tastes.

Back to Phillips music, it didn't seem to 'childish', for lack of a better word, the music felt like it actually came from a show made from the late 90s, or sitcom, with the instruments like the glockenspiel, or xylophone, that keyboard, all of it sounded like the first Rayman game back in 1995. I'm mostly thinking of the composition for the number, "Once Upon a Time", for Once Upon a Time(1996). And when the music really wanted to emphasize something big and gigantic happening, it wouldn't spare any expense on the trumpets and horns and drums, like in Barney's BIG Surprise(1996), more notably the segment where Barney, BJ and Baby Bop are flying in on a hot air balloon.

I prefer Phillips's tenure in the late 90s apposed to the early aughts, where he just sort of settled into being chief composer, and the wealth and variety of instruments he had were reduced considerably since the Park era, with Selena Gomez. But, in my opinion, he is the definitive Barney composer, capable of giving the character a distinct sound and identity that I will forever know him by.

Why did you revert the edit I made in the page about the toy rooster resembling the Big Red Chicken? I was only giving that episode a good reference and you know it's true, so why did you do it?

Update on Ms354494

this user is back doing the same thing reverting articles on songs even after this user was blocked for six months. If I were you I would just locked the song articles to permanent. --Rodney16 (talk) 08:42, September 19, 2018 (UTC)

Wiki to be adopted

Barneymiller, I think it should be time for this wiki to be adopted because the wiki's been targeted by numerous bad editors and that you should get the bureaucrat to promote any of us to stop that kind of behavior on this wiki since we've been going after them in the past years.

We would appreciate it if you use the adoption process here then gain the rights by then. Try that now so that way you can make us a bureaucrat for cleanup. Muzzarino 02:29, October 4, 2018 (UTC)

Hey Barneymiller123abc, I bet that this is the first time we get to talk to each other. Allow me to introduce myself. My name is MakoFTW (formerly known as Ferbbot88), and I run a fan-made wiki titled the Mako Movies wiki, which can be found here: Mako Movies Wiki and I just recently added photos of full VHS/DVD covers and the formats themselves on this wiki. I feel like those kinds of galleries are incomplete without them, so I'm wondering if you'll accept those onto this wiki, and if yes, that'll be great! Thank you for this conversation, and I'll talk to you soon, See Ya! MakoFTW (talk) 02:15, December 12, 2018 (UTC)

BJ Through the Years needs to be edited. Since it reads "VIEW SOURCE", I would like to provide a suggestion. "More brighter" is not correct English on the 1996-97 section. Please change it simply to "brighter". Thank you

Reason: Submitting stuff that is unrelated to the Barney Wiki.

Problematic user

this user made several files and videos unrelated to Barney. I have requested deletion for 3 of the files. It also looks like someone vandalized the delete template, but I’m not sure who. Anyways, can you please delete the files, block the user, or at least warn him? Thanks. CaillouFan (talk) - I love the TV show Caillou. 00:56, May 19, 2020 (UTC)

I had seen these images

In the episode "A Day at the beach", The intro is like This.NoahMorrison42 (talk) 21:55, June 21, 2020 (UTC)


What is the deal of that? my theory is perhaps those backgrounds were placeholders from when they finished the filming of the Day at the Beach and Three Wishes and that they didn't really know which background to put, and then they just put the different forest background, I also think the peanut butter jelly was originally gonna be in Three Wishes, but they instead had the song take place in the Day at the Beach even though picnics are only at parks, or maybe they DO have picnics at the beach and I just don't know that AyanoxTaro (talk) 07:20, August 21, 2020 (UTC)

Wiki to UCP migration

Hi, as your Wiki Manager, I want to make you aware of an upcoming change on Fandom that will affect all its communities, this one included. It's important that everyone is aware and has the opportunity to give feedback and ask questions.

As you may have heard plenty about already and have noticed from the banner that is present at the top of every wiki page, Fandom is getting ready to migrate its wikis to a new Unified Community Platform (UCP for short). You can read more about this in this blog. This wiki is set to be ported over at the end of the month.

If you still have questions about what that all entails after reading the blog, don't hesitate to ask them here. I'll be happy to supply you with an answer or find one for you in case I don't know myself.

After the migration happened, you can use this post to leave any and all feedback you may have about UCP as well, so I can relay if back to Fandom, or in case it would be about something that got broken during the migration, help you fix it. I hope we can collaborate on this to make the transition as smoothly as possible! Lady Lostris / 21:31, August 20, 2020 (UTC)

Original characters

May I create a blog post for an original character?

39 Images

39 Images per episode and home video


I hope you heard about my recent decission to limit every screencapture to 39 images. The remainder being behind the scenes, deleted or alternate shots.

If your interested in how this works the 39 images are based on plot, songs and activities. This will no longer be the entire episode, the cast or group shots but rather what happens in each episode. After that it's followed by Deleted or Alternate Angles, Behind the Scenes Shots and Promotional Materials. This can be based on what's found in the back of VHS's, found in magazines or any other source.

If you have any questions feel free to ask me and if not it's ok. Sorry If I haven't been responding to any messages. I've just been busy this past year.

UCP migration

Hey Barneymiller123abc. I'm contacting you in response to the you sent me on Community Central. It just seemed more relevant to have the discussion here.

So I first of all want to emphasize that I don't mind you being vocal at all, quite the opposite even. I appreciate any and all feedback you have to offer about UCP, and if things got broken in the migration, I'm happy to help out to fix them or provide the community with answers as to why a certain decision was made. Many things can indeed be attributed to a learning and getting used to curve, but that doesn't mean that there are not some actual issues that occurred due to the migration.

I have removed the lines that appeared around the articles. That was actually not a UCP issue, but a local common.css one, which is where I removed the coding that made the border appear.

As for the shrunken NavBoxes, can you please link me to the relevant template and some example pages where you see the issue?

If you see more issues on the wiki, don't hesitate to report! Lady Lostris / 9?cb=20190922130322 SOAP 09:40, 13 October 2020 (UTC)

How exactly did they shrink? You don't happen to have an example of how they previously looked? Or did they all used to look like the last example? Lady Lostris / 9?cb=20190922130322 SOAP 12:55, 13 October 2020 (UTC)

Mistakes on Protected Pages

Hi Barneymiller123, I have found some mistakes on some protected pages that I was hoping you would be able to correct (as I am unable to). I have listed them below:

  • Kristen: Should have Good, Clean Fun! listed under her Barney & Friends appearances. Consequently, the television appearances count in the page infobox should be updated from 13 to 14.
  • Season 5: Kristen's number of appearances should be updated from [5/20] to [6/20] (in cast section of page).

Thank you.

Malicious User

Hi Barneymiller123. Unfortunately, another malicious user has joined the wiki and has committed vandalism on several different pages. The user is known as Wigyou11 and I believe they should be blocked. They have also created a couple malicious pages which should be deleted.

Thank you.

End of year check-up and Fandom review

Hi! It's been a while, but I hope you've been doing well. Since the year is nearly coming to an end (finally, cause I don't know about you, but 2020 has gone on long enough for me ...), Fandom is reflecting back on the past year in order to move forward in 2021. To help us do that, I was wondering if you could spare a little time to fill out the 6 questions on this feedback form, which will help us get a sense of how we did, where we can improve, and what our focus points should be for the next year. This survey will be totally anonymous, so please be as honest and constructive as possible.

Another good way to give feedback on the working of Fandom as a whole and be more involved with what's happening is to join the Fandom/Gamepedia Discord server (in case you haven't already). This server is frequented by users from all communities, as well as staff members from different departments, with whom you can interact either through scheduled AMAs or just general everyday conversation.

If you have any additional questions, comments, or concerns, (not just about this, but in general) don't hesitate to ask, I'd be happy to help you out. Thanks beforehand for any feedback you'd be willing to provide and for all the hard work you've been doing on the wiki! I already wish you a happy holiday season! Lady Lostris / 9?cb=20190922130322 SOAP 11:32, 9 December 2020 (UTC)

Hey BM, thank you for that! And it has been my pleasure :-D Lady Lostris / 9?cb=20190922130322 SOAP 13:28, 9 December 2020 (UTC)
Additionally, I also wanted to let you know that I sent you an email to the address that's tied to your Fandom account. If you have a second, I'd love to get a reply from you there :-) Thanks beforehand! Lady Lostris / 9?cb=20190922130322 SOAP 19:51, 9 December 2020 (UTC)
I received your email well and have responded. Thank you!
Since Fandom is talking about reflection and looking toward the future, I was wondering if you perhaps had something similar in mind for the wiki. Are there like goals you'd like to hit in 2021? Did you perhaps ever consider a new design for the wiki, like a new background that's more Barney-themed rather than just his signature purple and a spiff of the main page, just to give it a more modern feel? If you'd be interested in that, these are things I can most definitely help you with. Could be nice to change things up a bit for the future, especially after the year everyone had. In any case, looking forward to continuing working together! And remember, I'm always just a message away should you ever require assistence or have questions about something wiki/Fandom related. Lady Lostris / 9?cb=20190922130322 SOAP 08:25, 10 December 2020 (UTC)

Those are some nice goals to have on the wiki, will probably keep you busy for a while. Alright, I'll ask him as well, but I generally have not received a reply from him about anything I asked, which is why I asked you instead :-) Lady Lostris / 9?cb=20190922130322 SOAP 08:38, 11 December 2020 (UTC)

Infobox issue

Hi, thank you for reaching out to me about the infobox issue. It should be better now. There was a space at the beginning of the template, which I removed, as well as incorrectly formatting br tags. Hope things have been well for the rest? Lady Lostris / 9?cb=20190922130322 SOAP 10:58, 16 January 2021 (UTC)

The Monthly

Hi! How are you? This is quite last minute, but you should've received an email today about "The Monthly", a monthly webinar-style event hosted by Fandom. It'll cover the need-to-know in regards to the platform. The first edition is this Friday, February 26th with two opportunities to join: 9am or 4pm US Eastern (check for your local time Future editions will be the final Friday of each month, if the schedule permits it. Afterwards, there will be a Fandom game night, which you're free to attend as well, cause you know ... fun, so why not :-D The Monthly will be a more centralized way of keeping you updated than just having me relay things to you, though that will still very much happen. If you didn't receive an email, please let me know, so I can check where it went wrong. Also, if this is not something that interests you, you will have the opportunity to opt-out of the mailing list. Lady Lostris / 9?cb=20190922130322 SOAP 23:30, 24 February 2021 (UTC)

I'm fine, thanks for asking! I am really excited about this opportunity as well, and I'm really happy you'll try to make it. And who knows, maybe stick around afterwards to play a game :-D Lady Lostris / 9?cb=20190922130322 SOAP 08:15, 25 February 2021 (UTC)
To follow-up on this conversation, I'll leave you with the most relevant notes of the meeting (in case you couldn't make it):

Notes on the webinar, Friday Feb 26:

  • UCX - (Unified Community Experience, formerly known as UCP Phase 2) Fandom Mobile experience now being served on Gamepedia wikis. They're wrapping up usability design testing, and conducting 1-on-1 interviews. More news on UCX is coming soon.
  • Evolving with the Web - Fandom is evolving the platform to meet new web standards, addressing Google core web vitals, and analyzing how certain practices on wikis impact the core web vitals. More information to come in the next few weeks.
  • Community Org - Fandom is reorganizing our growth/community teams. (Why "Wiki Managers" are now called "Wiki Representatives".)
  • Wiki Rules and Blocking Policy - This new policy goes live April 1st. Wiki rules need to be clear, blocks need to be issued according to the rules, and unfair blocks can be appealed to staff. Staff member Kirkburn will be the one handling block appeals. Fandom is also working on "a better way to surface rules" in navigation so users can more easily find them.

If you have any additional questions, you know the drill: don't hesitate to reach out and ask! Lady Lostris / 9?cb=20190922130322 SOAP 10:01, 1 March 2021 (UTC)

Ah, I'm glad you could attend! What did you think of it? Lady Lostris / 9?cb=20190922130322 SOAP 18:03, 1 March 2021 (UTC)

Wiki Rules and blocking policy

Since I touched upon it with the The Monthly notes, I may as well follow up on it. If I can suggest to read up on one of the blogs I linked in the previous post, it would be to read Wiki Rules and Blocking Policy. This global policy will go in effect on April 1st. While this wiki has a simplified ruleset, this may be the perfect time to smooth it out with a clearer blocking policy and code of conduct for users to follow when editing on this wiki. If you wish, I can help you draft a set of basic rules, so you don't have to do it all by yourself. Just let me know whatever you prefer to do. Lady Lostris / 9?cb=20190922130322 SOAP 10:01, 1 March 2021 (UTC)

You're the only one who has been responding to my outreach, so 😅 That said, I will reach out to them, but yeah, I doubt this time will be any different. In any case, all these policies are naturally wiki specific, so while we (being the M/TV Wiki Representative team) are working on a larger base policy, whatever we come up with would still have to be adapted to fit the needs of this wiki. You're welcome to hold out for that one though, and then adjust as you see fit to make it perfect for this wiki. Lady Lostris / 9?cb=20190922130322 SOAP 18:03, 1 March 2021 (UTC)
In the meantime though, while we're not ready yet with all the boilerplates we want to add, the blocking policy one is done. Feel free to take a look. It's that one (with related policies) which I would implement by the end of the month in order to be in order with Fandom's global blocking policy. However, I wanted to give you ample time to read through it, copy it over yourself, and make adjustments specific to this wiki. I'll also let the other admins know, but I've never heard back from them before, and this is something that does need to happen before the end of the month. If you have any questions about it, don't hesitate to ask! Lady Lostris / 9?cb=20190922130322 SOAP 11:01, 22 March 2021 (UTC)
Great to hear that you link it and feel like it could help you grow as an admin! If you'd like some help to implement it, happy to lend the assist! The policies that I would suggest this wiki adopts are the following:
These policies are in general just writing down standard, good wiki practice and should not impact this community's workflow. They've just become necessary to have, and I do think it is in general a good idea to write these things down so people clearly know what is expected of them.
Just let me know your thoughts, and I'd be happy to help you out to make the necessary changes! Lady Lostris / 9?cb=20190922130322 SOAP 10:16, 26 March 2021 (UTC)

The Monthly - March 26

Hiya! As you may remember from last month, Fandom is doing a monthly admin get together to ensure that you're all up-to-date with the latest Fandom news. The next session will be next week, Friday, March 26. Last month, you should have received an email about it, with the option to either opt-in or opt-out of the subscription. If you haven't made either choice, please dig up that first email and click the link corresponding your preference:

  • opt-in will put you on the monthly mailing list, ensuring that you'll get an invite each time. If you already did so, you will receive your invite email to next session shortly, so be on the lookout for that. If you haven't received one by Wednesday, let me know, so I can find out what when wrong.
  • opt-out will take you off the mailing list.

May I ask to please let me know which option you chose, cause if it's to opt-out, I want to respect that and not bring it up again :-) Hope to see you next week at The Monthly though! Lady Lostris / 9?cb=20190922130322 SOAP 08:56, 18 March 2021 (UTC)

Image removals


Could you please remove these two images from the wiki? I made a typo the first time and had to reupload them with the correct spelling. Thanks!

FandomDesktop introduction and feedback

Hey Barneymiller, I just wanted to make sure that you got a look at this general blog I made about the FandomDesktop introduction, and as always, looking forward to your thoughts about this. The more I know beforehand, the better I will be equipped to help you and this community transition to UCX when the time comes. Cheers! Lady Lostris / 9?cb=20190922130322 SOAP 13:21, 5 April 2021 (UTC)

Hey Barney, thanks for the feedback. I think it's safe to say that most people aren't a fan of change. That said, the local nav won't be an addition, as it's already on the wiki, just underneath the Fandom top bar, but the difference will now be that the local navigation will scroll down with you, whereas now it stays at the top, so users always had to scroll back up to use it.
In general though, the most noticeable changes will be the removal of the background and the ability for users to choose their own content width, but the design of this wiki is such that I don't think it'll impact you that much. I think this change will most be "getting used to the different location of certain things." Lady Lostris / 9?cb=20190922130322 SOAP 07:56, 6 April 2021 (UTC)

Upcoming Mattel Television Shows

Hey Barneymiller, here are the list of upcoming Mattel Television shows that are going to happen:

Thomas & Friends: All Engines Go!

The untitled Bob the Builder revival series (I am thinking it will be Bob the Builder: Fantastic Buildings with the return of the original designs from 1998 if Jam Filled Toronto animates it and Mattel Television and WildBrain will both produce it and it might happen for real sometime in the Summer of 2021 and maybe premiere in 2022)

The untitled Barney series (In development, but we do not know if it happens)

Barbie Fashion Battle

Masters of the Universe: Revelation

UCX SEO test

Hi! As you know, Fandom is gearing up to adopt a new skin site-wide. We've shared glimpses of it thus far through blogs, but now we're going to run some SEO tests on selected wikis.

I've taken a first look at this community on UCX, and save for a few adjustments here and there, the transition should be smooth. Being part of this test gives this community early access to the new skin and, since this is a test, there will be engineers standing by to help resolve any possible roadblocks we may encounter. The skin would be mandatory for every logged-out user, but logged-in users (like you) will still be able to choose the current skin. I think this could be a good opportunity for the wiki, but what do you think about it? Hoping to hear back soon, so we can start prepping the wiki. Lady Lostris / 9?cb=20190922130322 SOAP 10:30, 9 May 2021 (UTC)

So just to be clear, does that mean you're okay with participating in the test? Lady Lostris / 9?cb=20190922130322 SOAP 15:12, 9 May 2021 (UTC)
For sure, I'll let them know. Thanks for your willingness to do this! Lady Lostris / 9?cb=20190922130322 SOAP 19:31, 9 May 2021 (UTC)
Hey hey, I just wanted to let you know that I will start making some edits here and there to prepare the wiki for the UCX SEO test. You too will get access to test things out prior to the commencement of the test, but I already wanted to let you to give some context to some of my changes. If you have any questions, you know the dril :-D Lady Lostris / 9?cb=20190922130322 SOAP 12:32, 12 May 2021 (UTC)

FandomDesktop: Share your Theme Designer feedback

Hey hey, I'm here to share the latest of Fandom's sneak peeks on FandomDesktop. This time we're focusing on the Theme Designer, which was completely redesigned to host some of the new features and options FandomDesktop will offer, with such features like the native Light and Dark theme support, preview of the theme changes on actual pages rather than a mockup page, and built-in custom heading font options.

You can read all about it and preview some images in this blog, "A Deeper Look at Theme Designer on FandomDesktop"

What do you think of these? Anything do you like/dislike? Would you change anything?

Hehe, I'm glad you like it. I do want to note that it wasn't a code update that happened to make the sections happened, but rather me removing some of this wiki's css that was blocking the appearance of that button :-D Lady Lostris / 9?cb=20190922130322 SOAP 10:55, 17 May 2021 (UTC)

Admin request

I was wondering if you would be able to make me an admin on the page? I've been interviewing a lot of Barney crew members and getting their behind the scene stories. I've seen a lot on inaccuracies on some of the locked pages that I want to fix and update. I started adding a couple pages to fandom this week and have a lot more to write. Here is an article I recently wrote after interviewing Suzanne Lockridge: . I was also given a bunch of rare Barney behind the scenes pics from some crew members and would like to put some of them up on some of the pages. If you want to verify that I am an actual fan, not just a spammer, I have an Instagram page dedicated to building Barney replica dolls @barney_builder . Are you able to add me as an admin?

Unused image deletion

Hey hey! Well, there isn't really a way to do that, but you have Special:UnusedFiles. I'm currently deleting all the images still in there, so once it's empty again, it's just a matter of checking that page again like once a week to delete unused images. Hope this helps! Lady Lostris / 9?cb=20190922130322 SOAP 21:17, 29 May 2021 (UTC)

Glad I could help! There are several more useful pages listed for you on Special:AdminDashboard. Lady Lostris / 9?cb=20190922130322 SOAP 23:06, 30 May 2021 (UTC)
Hey hey, not that I want to pressure you on anything, but I just wanted to send you a friendly reminder to not forget to periodically check the now emptied Special:UnusedFiles, so you can delete the unused and thus unnecessary files from the wiki (and so it doesn't built up again to be nearly 5k of unused files ;-) ) Lady Lostris / 9?cb=20190922130322 SOAP 10:51, 23 June 2021 (UTC)

Barney favicon

Hey, I noticed you updated the favicon of the wiki to this cute purple dino favicon! Love it! I just wanted to ask to keep that file handy, cause when this wiki will be participating in the SEO test, it'll need that favicon be uploaded again. Or if you can perhaps share the file with me now, I can do it already :-D Lady Lostris / 9?cb=20190922130322 SOAP 09:53, 1 June 2021 (UTC)

How come you disabled the comments?

I have a serious question, why did you disabled the comments? I really wanted to comment on the pages:(

Community content add a comment

I wanted to add a comment on the fandom pages? But I don't see the comment box? How do I fix this?

Is this is A Fandom Hub?

Are you allowed to use fandom hub, like posting comments and personal pages?


Hiya! The galleries on FandomDesktop are using the MediaWiki style galleries, and they look like that with the border by default. You can use these mode parameters to alter the appearance of the galleries, but I can tell you that Fandom is preparing to roll back the appearance of the galleries to how they looked on Fandom Oasis. At least for now until the new gallery appearance is ready. Lady Lostris / 9?cb=20190922130322 SOAP 21:56, 22 June 2021 (UTC)

Regarding the user "Mr Whiskers and Wakko"

I'm concerned about the user "Mr Whiskers and Wakko" they keep making nonsensical edits on articles mentioning "Looney Tunes" and "Pinkfong" could you please try to make them stop (I don't want them banned from the wiki if it can be avoided)

Thanks Tangled99 (talk) 4:00pm July 21 2021 (PST)

In Barney's Colorful World Trivia, you should add "the only time Stacy and Laura appeared together.".

FandomDesktop and Community Connect

Hiya! I hope you're doing well. I wanted to ask you a few things, if you don't mind:

  1. Now that FandomDesktop is the default everywhere, I wanted to ask how you feel about it. There honestly are no bad answers, love it, hate it, I would like to know, so please do feel empowered to be 100% honest with me. I am just out to get an honest feel of what users are thinking about the new skin :-D
  2. And then something about Community Connect: as an active admin, you are on the invite list for the second Virtual Community Connect that will happen next weekend, August 7 and 8, and I was wondering if you got the email. If so, please do indicate whether or not you'll be attending (can highly recommend to do so in order to get some insight info about Fandom projects). If you didn't receive anything, not even in your spam, please do let me know so we can try to rectify this.

Additionally, I wanted to bring up an unusual high amount of protected pages on this wiki. Is there a reason why so many pages are protected from editing by anyone who isn't an admin? This practice is quite restrictive and in general quite detrimental for a healthy wiki editing culture. Would you be willing to remove those protections unless it is absolutely necessary? I can assist with this unprotecting project if you would like. Hoping to hear back from you! Lady Lostris / 9?cb=20190922130322 SOAP 13:17, 1 August 2021 (UTC)

I'm glad to hear that you're getting used to it. Should you ever encounter an issue with it, don't hesitate to reach out though!
Ah, I see now, thank you for letting me know. I understand now why all those pages were locked. However, while understandable, locking pages like that isn't the best way to deal with vandalism. I such, I would indeed suggest to unlock all those pages and just see how it goes with the community. If an issue should arise, let me know, and we can look into the best ways to protect this wiki besides locking everything down. Lady Lostris / 9?cb=20190922130322 SOAP 15:01, 1 August 2021 (UTC)
I can most definitely help with unprotecting the articles. Would you be okay with me running a script to unprotect them all? Should it then prove that some pages have been unprotected that shouldn't have, the protection can be added again. Lady Lostris / 9?cb=20190922130322 SOAP 16:44, 1 August 2021 (UTC)
Sweet. I just ran a script to unprotect all those pages. Some, like frequently used templates may benefit from protection. Lady Lostris / 9?cb=20190922130322 SOAP 17:34, 1 August 2021 (UTC)
