    • Thank you! It's been a while and with the hiatus there wasn't much to post. Plus I got busy with work but I'm ready for the new season. :)

  • So I think this might be a fun thing to do for the wiki! It's totally up to you and the admins but I have experince doing them, in fact I just finished one on another wiki. What happens is that we will have a group of nominees for different category and via the polls, users can vote for thier favorites and then I would announce the winners and they would get a small trophy picture made for them. If you want to see what I do then check out this page to see kinda a more detail version of what I made:

    I just want to get some people's opinions on it :)

    • if other people on here are up for it, I think it would be a nice thing to do :) Thank you for coming up with something like this. :)

      Have a wonderful day :)

    • yay :) I just wanna get other people's opinions on it. I can run it all by myself, I just need admins to help advertise. I'm waiting though for a official okay from WhereIsMyMind since she's the only active admin right now to my knowledge

  • You again added info for the last episode to Bella Hoffheins page, but I don't think that's right.

    I think it was a different girl named Bella with SBDC, one you'd find competing in 15 to 19 here, or here.

    I'm not saying I'm totally certain, because I'm not...

    • I see. I just assumed that it was Bella Hoffheins because of her ties to SB and Kaeli and Dance Moms but like you I'm not really sure...

      It seems like from her Twitter that it is her not Bella Hoffheins that was in the dance, I'll change things to only say the first name :) Thanks for letting me know.

  • I'm not a big fan of going overboard on directly embedding videos with the default Wikia tool, mainly because they tend to break (unless they're from a few sites like Lifetime), and are very hard to spot when they do.

    As a possible alternative I could make another YouTube player template that's larger (in x, y dimensions) than the one that's usually used for playing songs; and that's smaller than the big one used on the main page and season pages... Would a moderately sized YouTube player template interest you here as something to use instead?


    Back to the reason I'm not a big fan of directly embedding so many videos with the default tool: if the number of videos are limited, then it's somewhat manageable for someone (it's always been me) to go through all the videos once in awhile, see if they are working (and not giving a false impression that they are available); by trying to view all of them for a couple seconds; and then delete/fix the videos that don't, and then also fix the pages where any deleted videos were embedded.

    The more videos there are, the less manageable that task becomes (that is, it starts to take FOREVER, time-wise.)

    So I'd kind of like to limit the number of videos embedded like that, where you can't easily tell when they're broken. Especially vids that are unlikely to ever be very popular; or that are especially prone to YouTube accounts getting suspended (and so on.)


    I don't think we're ever going to be a major site for videos, anyway.

    I've heard people say that you should know your business, meaning, know what you're good at. Wikia is really excellent when it comes to collecting information, and to the extent that I fully trust that this Wiki truly has had 441,100 visitors in the last week (as an admin-only feature states), I think it's mainly because we can do a better job at that than anyone (dancer bios, episode lists and info, dance lists and placings, song info, etc.) But when it comes to viewing videos, I think people are going to tend to go directly to YouTube anyway... which is what their site is designed to be good at.

    • Thank you for showing these to me, they are working out wonderfully. I was wondering if you would be up for a bit of a challenge and possibly help me out. I was thinking about putting in the infobox for songs a section after the creditionals before chronology, of doing a thing like dance information with the dancers names, the style and possibly the placement. I have been thinking about this especially with group numbers. Instead of clutering up the already cluttered main article to include this so as fill out the pages a bit more. Also I would like to do something with the chronology but I don't really know what, it's just been bothering me a bit that most of the songs don't have anything there...I don't know if any of this made sense but since you're an admin and seemingly most active you would be able to suggest something or help or whatever you see fit. :) I have some code written out for the dance info thing (though I probably did it wrong :)) I don't know if it will cause more clutter or help in any way but it's been something weighing on my mind.

      Thanks!

  • Do you know the results from today's Dance Moms comp?

      Loading editor
    • I do not, the things that are posted on the Spoilers page are as current as I know them to be. I have been looking for the results but I cannot find them. I am very sorry and I wish I knew the results but I do not. I guess we will just have to wait and see :)

      Have a wonderful day,
