Hey

Hi, just wanna say thank you for reverting some vandalism on here. Just keep an eye out for vandalism and revert the pages if you can. --Rodney16 (talk) 17:44, November 7, 2018 (UTC)

Oh, and one more thing: This user just impersonated me on here. --Rodney16 (talk) 17:44, November 7, 2018 (UTC)

Song Templates

Hey LunaMouse23, Thank you for your contributions onto this wiki. You've made it more tee-rific! I just wanted to let you know about the song templates. I think there's been a little confusion. So we have different song templates on this wiki. There's the Barney Songs template and the Children's Songs template. I've realized that you put "What I Like About You", "Throw Your Hands Up", and "Move It Like This" in the Barney Songs template. Those songs are not Barney songs. Granted, they are sung by Barney and his friends, but they were not made by the writers of Barney or in creation for this live show. "Together With You" was written specifically for "Barney Live in Concert: Birthday Bash!", thus making it a Barney song. Those are old songs that came out before Barney came out or made outside of the Barney team. I would keep the pictures to those pages, but I would remove the templates, since those songs do not categorize as a Barney song or a children's song. As well, The previous and next options in the template are in chronological order of when Barney songs appear. Not how they apper in live shows. :) Barneymiller123abc (talk) 15:02, November 12, 2018 (UTC)

It turns out to me that this account is a sockpuppet to Caidin. In fact he's also ban evading as well. --Rodney16 (talk) 22:41, January 2, 2019 (UTC)

Matimyas1230

I just found out that this user is actually a sockpuppet to Matty1230 and not only that, he is also ban-evading. I would've blocked that user to infinite if it was a sockpuppet and ban evading. --Rodney16 (talk) 08:49, February 11, 2019 (UTC)

UPDATE: Same user is ban evading here. --Rodney16 (talk) 19:20, March 23, 2019 (UTC)

BATBYG in 3D

You know, Luna, maybe we could find someone who can do a 3D version of Barney and the Backyard Gang Three Wishes. I've seen the 3D models of Michael, Luci, and Tina in the London Town video on YouTube, despite being the cassette version. One more thing, the 3D version would have additional music in a Bob Singleton style and additional sound effects in The Wiggles style. ThomasandFriendsLover April 4 2019, 22:40 (UTC)

The Backyard Show

The Backyard Show

Thank you for contributing some images of The Backyard Show by adding I've Been Working on the Railroad and Little Bunny Foo Foo. It's really helping out this community. I_Helfrich (talk) 12:58, April 9, 2019 (UTC) I kind of already had an image uploaded on Six Little Ducks. 

Images

Hey LunaMouse23, I suggest that when you change the images of certain pages (like episodes or songs), I suggest you rename them to the same name of the image file that's on the page you're editing. For example, say you want to change the image on "Snackin' On Healthy Food", I would name the image I'm adding "Snackinonheathyfood". Reason I suggest that is because the image will automatically change wherever the image is located (like on year pages, etc) and that way, we won't have the edit other pages (it becomes tedious). :) Barneymiller123abc (talk) 23:35, April 16, 2019 (UTC)

This user needs a permanent banned here. Cause this user is adding naked pictures on here.

Texbunny

Found a sockpuppet to Caidin Johnson. What I should've done that block them as identified so if a sockpuppet comes back they should be banned for ban-evading. --Rodney16 (talk) 16:05, June 21, 2019 (UTC)

Three Wishes: 3D Remake

You know, Luna, one of us Barney fans could do a 3D remake of one of the Barney videos: Three Wishes. All we need is Blender 2.8 for the 3D models and Mixcraft 8 for the additional custom music in the style of Robert "Bob" Singleton. ThomasandFriendsLover 21:26, 6th September 2019, (UTC)

Dusty accounts

Found one of the Dusty accounts on here. I wish you would've permanent ban him instead of one year. --Rodney16 (talk) 15:33, September 8, 2019 (UTC)

Also: Can you please lock this page to prevent the editing waring with Dusty's accounts? --Rodney16 (talk) 15:38, September 8, 2019 (UTC)

Rodney's behavior

You guys want Rodney banned from here? I just heard he just made threatening comments about commiting suicide on the internet on Logopedia and his behavior right now has gone too far, so I de-admin'd him and blocked him from several wikis for that behavior. He's been a good person tackling vandals and supported his adminship until now all this sudden he decided to that instead.Muzzarino 01:23, November 4, 2019 (UTC)

Look I didn't mean to say that! I was just having a bad day, because of daylight savings times and I didn't mean to say that. :/ But I do felt like I need to move on from Logopedia and Closing Logo Group Fandom because of what NewYorkCity101 said that I have to move on. So should I close my Rodney16 account and start fresh with a new account or close my account forever and never comeback? You could've at least say to me that "I'm sorry you're having a tough time." that's ALL the users on those two sites could've said to me but instead they blocked me forever. Why? If you wanna me out and afraid of me, fine. Don't talk to me anymore. But all I wanna say to the people from Logopedia and Closing Logo Group fandom is "Why?"--Rodney16 (talk) 08:04, November 4, 2019 (UTC)

New Wiki Manager

Hey Luna! I'm Lostris, the new Wiki Manager for this community. I'll be taking over from Mandy, who has since then been hired to be this wiki's full-time staff community manager. Like I noted in my introduction blog, I am here to support the community in any way possible, ranging from being your direct line of contact to Fandom staff, to being an assist on the wiki itself by helping to redesign the theme of the wiki or helping out with editing or social conflict. Don't worry, I'm not here to take over, I will only act when and where you ask me to. Don't hesitate to reach out to me with any and all wiki questions you may have, and I'll do my best to accommodate you. I will also alert you fellow admins of this change. I look forward to be working with you! Kind regards, Lady Lostris / 40?cb=20190922130322

Barney VCD genuity

Hey there, regarding about the Barney VCD pictures you have added to the pages for Campfire Sing-Along , Come on Over to Barney's House, Can You Sing That Song?, Barney Rhymes with Mother Goose and Let's Pretend with Barney, I would like to mention a couple of flaws that have been seen on such pages regarding them. 

1) The VCDs weren't just released in Singapore. They were also released in Malaysia too. To elaborate further, Berjaya HVN is the distributor of Barney videos for the two countries, having made DVDs and VCDs of exisiting tittles available , as well as episode videos of the TV series (since Season 7, along with the regular home video releases of episodes that came before that.) Even after Lyrick's acqusition by HIT Entertainment in 2001, the company still continued to distribute the tittles.

2) The VCD pictures for the pages mentioned, with the exception of Barney Rhymes with Mother Goose and Can You Sing That Song? has the wrong VCD images attached to their pages. In fact, let me tell you that they are actually the bootleg versions. The best way I can tell is that HVN's distribution would have a genuine form of artwork to show the originality of the videos released. Having admittedly owned several Barney VCDs which are bootlegged editions, their artwork has great and custom differences from the original videos, with no distribution details on the back cover of the disc, and constantly using fanmade designs. The discs too would be coloured in one singular hue, unlike originals which would be in colour variety in terms of the discs. 

To explain the authenticity of VCDs sold of Barney titles, I will use some pictures to demonstarte.

Bootleg version (Classic collection byline, not seen on HVN releases, also notice how inferior VCD and digital video verfication logos are used on the sides.)

Original VCD released by Berjaya HVN. (Notice the blue sides, which is seen on genuine HVN releases, HVN stickers on unopened packing) Early releases like this featured the Lyrick logo on the front.

On later releases, the Lyrick logo is dropped on covers, but the blue packing remains. Some bootleg releases even have custom made covers, with refined text fonts and even custom Barney fonts, such as this:

Original release still has blue packaging, the only genuine way to recognize the official release, cover retains majority of original USA packaging artwork.

Bootleg version has a white or sometimes black side, uses an inferior VCD logo on disc. But biggest notice lies on cover, which is a heavily edited version of the cover in terms of text fonts and backgrounds

After Lyrick got bought by HIT, distribution continued. Newer VCD releases (including exclusive episode videos for the region) would have the current Barney logo with the left corner joined by a purple border, a similar style used in the designs of Barney videos at the time of 2003 to 2005 -ish.) The same rule applied for similar DVDs released, which were thankfully not seen on bootleg forms here. Should a video

Bootleg version, still with blank white negative spaces, clearly modified.

Genuine version, with Barney borders on the left sides of the cover, also notice more security stickers and additonal headlines like "Lyric subtittles".

Now to focus on DVDs, newer DVDs released by HVN would omit the borders, and the HVN logo would be seen on the bottom left of the DVD for genuity.

So, that just about covers it for my list of Barney VCD genuity, hope this list may help in any future contributions. Considering I'm from Singapore, that's why I'm able to make a list out of all the genuine and bootleg versions of Barney VCDs that were properly distributed.

You can visit this website: http://www.digilearn.com.hk/prod_01_barney2.html to check out aa majority of  the Singapore Barney DVD and VCDs that were released in Singapore and Malaysia by Berjaya HVN. If you need more help, you can feel free to message me any time. Hope this list helps in future references.

Imagination Island DVD and VCD releases in Asia

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 / 40?cb=20190922130322 21:31, August 20, 2020 (UTC)

End of year check-up and Fandom review

Hi Luna! 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!

Wiki Rules and blocking policy

Hey, how are you? I wanted to drop by to let you know about the upcoming global Wiki Rules and Blocking Policy that 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, we (being the M/TV Wiki Representative team) are working on a larger base policy, which you can adapt to fit the needs of this wiki. You're welcome to hold out for that one though, but you are naturally also free to come up with your own. If you have questions, don't hesitate to ask! Lady Lostris / 9?cb=20190922130322 SOAP 18:06, 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. If you have any questions about it, don't hesitate to ask! Lady Lostris / 9?cb=20190922130322 SOAP 11:02, 22 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)

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.
