Hi, welcome to Family Guy Wiki! Thanks for your edit to the User:The 888th Avatar/Sandbox page.

Please leave a message on my talk page if I can help with anything! -- Grande13 (talk) 05:32, 14 March 2009


Hi There!

Thanks for catching the vandal on Cleveland Brown Jr. I was right behnd you but it feels good not to be alone. :) As a joke, I gave myself the category of 'Wiki Guardian' (Inspired by Grande's own joke category) but maybe we should recurit a few more 'guardian angels'. --Buckimion 05:52, 15 June 2009 (UTC)

Hey thanks, no problem at all. Heh, ya it would be great to see this wiki living its full potential. We really need to get more people editing. ~Joey~ ^Talk^

New Admin

Thanks for the thumbs up. I've got my own skin adjusted to what I'm comfortable with. I liked the old one but a number of others didn't so thats something I'll stay our of as long as there isn't a revolt. --Buckimion 13:47, 27 June 2009 (UTC)

The Cleveland Show Wiki

Any chance of greasing the skids for an admin on The Cleveland Show Wiki? Grande13 is bucking for a much deserved position of Bureaucrat and I'm sitting by impotently as we had a serial vandal there today and am myself interested in being an admin. --Buckimion 22:15, October 11, 2009 (UTC)

Hi I’m wondering if there could be a Gallery section for each episode. I contribute galleries to wikis I am interested in and notice there is no gallery section for the majority of the episodes. Would you be interested in having a gallery tab? Thanks Heyfunboy (talk) 04:16, June 20, 2020 (UTC)

Absolutely not. This would be a violation of Fair use which strictly limits copyrighted images to just enough to illustrate the subject. Unlike wikis that violate this principal, we have a working partnership with the studio which has even recognized our connection in "You Can't Handle the Booth!". https://familyguy.fandom.com/wiki/File:Wiki --Buckimion (talk) 10:00, June 20, 2020 (UTC)

Friends of Peter G/Goofs

Mr. Booze Spelling Goof
I added a goof to Friends of Peter G and you removed it for "no goof found", but it is clearly visible in this screenshot. I could be missing something, such as the spelling being intentional, but it seems like a goof to me. zombiewizard45 (talk) 03:11, June 21, 2020 (UTC)

Since it remains consistent throughout the scene, we consider it a Note, not a goof. --Buckimion (talk) 03:14, June 21, 2020 (UTC)

I see. I'll move it there. Thanks for letting me know. zombiewizard45 (talk) 05:00, June 21, 2020 (UTC)

Bit Characters and Fictional Characters

Should fictional characters only seen in cutaways (e.g. Cookie Monster and Humpty Dumpty) also be categorized as bit characters? zombiewizard45 (talk) 20:49, June 23, 2020 (UTC)

And, on that note, the category is categorized under Bit Characters but not all fictional characters are bit characters (such as the Simpsons), unless I'm misinterpreting the meaning. zombiewizard45 (talk) 20:52, June 23, 2020 (UTC)

No, we consider such doubling of categories as clutter and is not welcome here. By placing them under 'Bit Characters' in the category tree, we already consider that sub-category as part of it. --Buckimion (talk) 20:59, June 23, 2020 (UTC)

United Community Platforms

So Wikia is launching United Community Platforms and they said we will all be migrating in the next few months. What are your thoughts on this? I'm personally upset because I like the source editors and stuff and it's clear they're trying to attract people who aren't experienced with wikis. All the best! :) Orange Mo (talk) 05:49, June 24, 2020 (UTC)

Many years ago, there was a switch from monobook to oasis (or maybe it was the other way around, I don't remember) that caused a hell of a fuss. Many wiki teams, including the Simpsons, broke away and went elsewhere entirely. (There were also attempts to sabotage the Wiki's left behind with Wikia, but those just pretty much got shut down.) Even I was approached about taking this Wiki elsewhere, although most were nothing but blatant attempts to grab power. I see no point in going somewhere else to do the same job I'm doing here, and if I can't do that then I just walk away. --Buckimion (talk) 11:13, June 24, 2020 (UTC)

Same here. If it becomes too much change that I can't accept, I'm simply gonna walk away from wikis. Wikipedia is the only one that is going to keep this interface and it's the one I much prefer. All the best! :) Orange Mo (talk) 22:39, June 24, 2020 (UTC)

What classifies a major character? I think it should just be any character the show expects you to remember multiple times. Or should we have a separate category for that? or nothing?GarfildForever (talk) 20:45, June 24, 2020 (UTC)Garfild Forever

We require a minimum of 8 major appearances to be considered a major character. It's so stated in our policy pages. --Buckimion (talk) 20:58, June 24, 2020 (UTC)

Mike Henry's alleged departure

I realise that he may not end up leaving the show, but I think that his announcement itself is important enough to justify inclusion on his page. zombiewizard45 (talk) 23:36, June 26, 2020 (UTC)

We'll post it on the news page and the main page, but right now I'm busy checking the stuff put in through today. --Buckimion (talk) 23:39, June 26, 2020 (UTC)

Dead video links

Just thought I'd let you know that these videos are dead and you might want to remove them:

Nick Viall in Yacht Rocky

Can I Add that it aired on his 39th birthday to the episode's trivia?

Generally, we'd prefer not, but I think we can go ahead with this one with a note that he guest-starred. --Buckimion (talk) 12:19, July 5, 2020 (UTC)

Inconsistent category capitalisation

I noticed Category:Enemy characters and Category:Fictional Characters have different capitalisations of "character". Is this intentional? zombiewizard45 (talk) 19:28, July 5, 2020 (UTC)

No, it existed from previous administrations but I frown on mass replacement of current wording as long as there isn't a misspelling. Nitpickers drive me crazy. --Buckimion (talk) 19:35, July 5, 2020 (UTC)

Page renaming proposal

I suggest Pawtucket Pat (Character) being renamed to Pawtucket Pat (character) as text within parentheses should be lowercase. I know it's sort of nitpicky. zombiewizard45 (talk) 03:08, July 8, 2020 (UTC)

I'd prefer not. --Buckimion (talk) 03:10, July 8, 2020 (UTC)

Food & Drinks category

I noticed that some fast food restaurants are categorized under the Food and Drinks category, like Subway and Taco Bell. Is it really accurate to categorize them as such and in that case should the rest of the other restaurants (e.g. McDonald's and Burger King) have it as well? EmilyHReturns (talk) 20:52, July 9, 2020 (UTC)

I think we divided it if the food was the featured part or the place. for Simplicity sake, let's go ahead and remove it from the food and drinks category.

Hello, I am new here and this is my first post. In the episode "Fresh Heir, Carter gets hurt while talking to Babs on the escalator. Lois then says Babs is out of town doing a photoshoot for veins magazine. I believe that is a goof. TenderKey97 (talk) 03:41, July 12, 2020 (UTC)

Nope. It happens over the span of a few days, plenty of time for Carter to be treated and sent home before Babs would leave. In short, she needs someone to take care of him while she's away. --Buckimion (talk) 10:51, July 12, 2020 (UTC)

Will Roberta ever have a speaking role on Family Giy?

Your guess is as good as mine, but I wouldn't hold my breath on it. --Buckimion (talk) 17:19, July 12, 2020 (UTC)
