Commentary Transcripts

Nominated by:- SawBucks  Talk  Contribs 
I have started creating the transcripts for the many commentaries that the Lost DVD's have. We have all of the other bonus features from the disks other than these. This idea post is also to help me find out how I would sooner or later include it into LP, if this would be added next to each episode like the "enhanced episodes" or just give it it's own link (that goes to a disambig like page) at the end of the bonus feature's list in the "Templates Nav Box" If this is something you would like to see in the creation process while a vote takes place, please click here.

  • Agree:-- SawBucks  Talk  Contribs  10:19, 20 January 2009 (UTC)
  • Agree: Orhan94 10:45, 20 January 2009 (UTC)
  • Agree: Sounds like a nice idea if people have the time to transcript this stuff. Integrated (User / Talk) 23:03, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
    • I can do some, I really would like to do the first one or two my self as I am a very big fan of any kind of commentary.-- SawBucks  Talk  Contribs  23:13, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
  • Agree: It'd be a great addition to the wiki. --Blueeagleislander 03:35, 25 January 2009 (UTC)
  • Agree: But don't put them next to each episode like the enhanced eps, it will get too cluttered. Make a new row for Commentary Transcripts.--Baker1000 13:47, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
I was thinking the same thing, Mabey a link at the end of the bonus features section in the template and then a disambig page (only one that looks better) that goes to each one. we could then create a template for each commentary at the top of each page for easy nav. Just to let anyone wondering know, I am working on the first one as we speak and am halfway done, it takes me about 4-5 hours for just half of the episode of a commentary with three people talking. you have been warned before starting any on your own.-- SawBucks  Talk  Contribs  03:51, 4 February 2009 (UTC)
The first one is finished, if you would like to see how this will look please click here. If you have any ideas of how to put this into Lostpedia then now is the time!-- SawBucks  Talk  Contribs  23:28, 4 February 2009 (UTC)

Who Knows Who

  • Nominated by:Willo 02:42, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
  • I've noticed that a lot of the character pages show what characters each other have met. I am suggesting a chart that has all the characters on it (Main characters as the columns, recurring as the rows) that easily provides information on who has met who. It'd be done in a similar style to mileage charts on road maps and atlases. I'd be willing to do it, but wanted to see what others here thought.
    • I went ahead and made this. It's not linked anywhere, and is just a start to see if anyone likes it. You can see it here.
    • Not bad. Charts cram a lot of information into a small space. One recommendation: Because you use white as the background where the character's column intersects his/her row, find another color for "Never Met."--Jim in Georgia Contribs Talk 22:19, 30 January 2009 (UTC)
  • That's a great idea, I like the chart, but maybe the page could be expanded to be more in depth? To include instances where characters have seen each other or talked about but never met, met offscreen, etc etc. ZTcrazy 17:26, 1 February 2009 (UTC)

Unregistered Editing

Nominated by:--JinxTalk Contribs 23:50, 31 December 2008 (UTC) We should do something about it, I had to clean up some spoilers place on Daniel Faraday's page and Ms.Hawking. Would we be able to restore, registered editing only?

  • The Sysops have been discussing this, and there should be something done about it soon. -- CTS  Talk   Contribs 00:31, 1 January 2009 (UTC)
Is there any way that we can have it able for User talk pages only or would it have to be for everything?-- SawBucks  Talk  Contribs  03:22, 1 January 2009 (UTC)
  • It would be for everything, but why would they need to edit user talk pages? -- CTS  Talk   Contribs 19:33, 1 January 2009 (UTC)
Nevermind, I was getting at the fact that people may not want to sign up just to inform someone of an update or to point out spoilers in unwanted locations, but I still don't think its a good idea.
  • Agree. I cleaned up a spoiler on Pierre Chang's page yesterday from an unregistered user.--Jim in Georgia Contribs Talk 19:33, 1 January 2009 (UTC)
  • Agree:-- SawBucks  Talk  Contribs  11:44, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
  • Agree, after checking the block log I've noticed that most of the users banned after the moving to Wikia were unregistered users. And I think that it's the same case on Wikipedia (the chances are bigger that an unregistered user is a vandal, than a registered user being one). Orhan94 10:08, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
  • Agree: Especially when the finale comes around, and DarkUFO puts out spoilers once again. Last time we had to disable account creation to stop the spoilers being put on the wiki. If we let unregistered users edit LP, there's no way to stop finale spoilers leaking onto the site without locking editing altogether for a week or two (and we don't want that).--Baker1000 13:45, 3 February 2009 (UTC)

Tenses

Is there a rule regarding what tense pages should be in? I always write in past tense, as I did with some of Kate's page, but that has now led to a change in tense as the season five events are written in present. The same applies for Aaron. Is there a default tense that we use for the wiki, and if not I think we should instate a rule. --Jamie-0408 12:45, 11 February 2009 (UTC)

Please see Lostpedia:Manual of Style#Present versus past tense for more information on site policy. --Nickb123 (Talk) 18:10, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

Lostpedia Twitter

A few months ago, I began using the social networking site Twitter, a site which allows users to post 140-character updates regarding themselves (much like status updates on MySpace). Twitter is very convenient for people in that it provides all the recent information and news that they require. DarkUFO uses Twitter to broadcast his updates, as well as several Lost-related podcasts. I feel it would be a great addition to both the Twitter community and a great help to users of LP and Twitter if Lostpedia got a Twitter account to post their updates. These could consist of links to new blog posts, as well as updates on featured articles each week, quotes of the day, etc. It would be a great expansion to the site. -- Sam McPherson  T  C  E  01:06, 18 February 2009 (UTC)

The Italian Lostpedia has already taken "lostpedia", but nickb123 has a LP one at "nicklostpedia". --Blueeagleislander 07:24, 18 February 2009 (UTC)

Theory pages' categories

  • Nominated by:--Orhan94 19:56, 9 March 2009 (UTC)
  • This isn't a proposition but rather a problem that faces the theory article on LP and I didn't know where to post it so i guess here is the best place to address it. I don't know anybody else noticed this but someone went and added non-existing categories to various theory pages such as Category:Daniel is Charlotte's father and similar. Though there is no policy against these kinds of theories it really is stupid to have categories for them.--Orhan94 19:56, 9 March 2009 (UTC)
Of course. They should be removed -- theories don't need individual categories. -- Sam McPherson  T  C  E  02:58, 13 March 2009 (UTC)
What's even worse, categories are being added to Blogs as well, both non-existant and existant (thus showing op in category-pages of the encyclopedia). That shouldn't be allowed. --LOST-Hunter61 19:22, 14 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Have updated the MOS to advise against categorising theory tabs and user blogs. See here. --Blueeagleislander 07:36, 16 March 2009 (UTC)

Language sidebar

I know that LP has a language sidebar which links to the respective wiki, but I think we should copy Wikipedia and make it possible to go to that article in another language with a single click (ie Link the sidebar to the same article in another wiki). --Blueeagleislander 02:12, 1 August 2008 (PDT)

  • No I really think that if someone wants to go to something in a different language then they can just hit the respective language and enter it in manually. It would just make us do more work when we could be focusing on other more important things instead. Three clicks away is not too many clicks. :P--Jinx 20:37, 1 August 2008 (PDT)
  • Agree.: I was actually thinking the same thing myself a while back. -- Sam McPherson  T  C  E  18:26, 9 August 2008 (PDT)
  • Agree It really bugs me when I'm trying to translate Voice actor articles from the French and Portuguese Lostpedia, because I need to do the process Jinx described, a sidebar would really help a lot of users on LP--Orhan94 01:31, 5 December 2008 (PST)
  • Agree On LP-FR we had to add a template on top of every article to link to the article in other languages. But doing that would need every actors of LP to feed the links table (I suppose it is based on something like that). Wyz 04:58, 15 December 2008 (PST)

Lost dvd's section

  • It would be good if there was a section that should you all the dvds of lost and should you what they feature on each boxset. There could be links to some of the special features that are hosted on youtube or or other video sites.
  • See DVD. --Blueeagleislander 02:54, 19 April 2009 (UTC)

The concept of the show

  • Would be really cool if there was a whole new section devoted the the idea of the show and who created it and how they came up with the idea for it. Additional categories in this section could be, who came up with the original idea, how the show went from an idea into a tv show. There is all sorts of things you can think of.
  • See Lost --Blueeagleislander 02:54, 19 April 2009 (UTC)

Yes/No templates

  • Nominated by: --DerAndre (talk) 20:45, 10 April 2009 (UTC)
  • I just found a range of different comment templates on Wikimedia Commons. I'd suggest to create some templates on LP: {{Yes}} and {{Agree}}, using this image, {{No}} and {{Disagree}} using this image as well as {{Neutral}} using this image. In addition {{Comment}} and {{Question}}, using an exclamation point or rather a question mark. Those templates would improve the clearness of votings. So everyone is able to get an immediate overview about the votes. --DerAndre (talk) 20:45, 10 April 2009 (UTC)
    • I totally agree.  Nico  23:59, 14 April 2009 (UTC)
  • Agree makes it a lot clearer. --Blueeagleislander 02:50, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
  • Agree much clearer, and more easily countable. -- Sam McPherson  T  C  E  02:58, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
  • Agree: This is a great idea DerAndre. It would definitely make voting more clear. -- CTS  Talk   Contribs 03:20, 19 April 2009 (UTC)

Remove "Days 100-" from character pages pending resolving of time travel ..

  • Nominated by: Integrated (User / Talk) 03:48, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

Ok that's a long winded title but basically .. on the character pages for most main characters still on the island for the Season 5 section it is written Days 100- after, as has been done for all other seasons. I think this Days 100- should be removed for the time being because their sporadic temporal alterations makes the amount of days since the crash seem redundant. Until the survivors have settled on a time period and stopped time glitching, we should remove this.

  • Agree Integrated (User / Talk) 03:48, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
  • Unsure: I know that the dismantled timeline and the sporadic time-traveling puts a new twist on the concept of time for the survivors, but they are still on the Island for a certain amount of days, right? Even if the survivors continue to move forward/backward in time, they still have been "on the Island" for a certain amount of time (in this case, 100+ Days). -- CTS  Talk   Contribs 04:04, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
  • Agree: While pondering this idea I glanced at Rose's page. Someone had labeled the season 5 section as "Post-Island Move". While I'm not to sure about the title, something to this effect would work well in this time where certain things are just unknown.-- SawBucks  Talk  Contribs  12:31, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
    • I actually noticed that too, it seems as good an idea as any. Integrated (User / Talk) 12:46, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
    • I am suggesting that, given that the format of seasons one-to-four was very different from season five we start a new 'After the Island move' section. And place the contents of season five and latter seasons (unless season six calls for a new heading) into that.
      • I initiated the changes to Juliet and, regarding whether you like it or not, feel free to revert or spread it to other pages. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Jamie-0408 (talkcontribs) 21:01, 26 January 2009.
  • I reverted your edits. There was no consensus, and it was an inaccurate heading (the Island "moved", it didn't "disappear".) -- CTS  Talk   Contribs 01:05, 27 January 2009 (UTC)
    • Well done CTS. This page is here so people can agree or disagree, not so people can do things regardless and then make people work to undo the damage they've done. Please write Agree if you agree. Integrated (User / Talk) 01:14, 27 January 2009 (UTC)
I agree it was rather vague but I do think it should be seperated from the 'After the Crash' sections as the narrative of the story has taken a very different route. --Jamie-0408 12:21, 27 January 2009 (UTC)
It's not really a matter of seperating or anything like that, it's just a very minor label on a page, we should try to focus on names to change it to. I'm for "Post Island Move" just until we figure out everything, the bigger detail should be worring about what happens when they all meet up again and trying to figure out how long each person has been on the island at that point-- SawBucks  Talk  Contribs  04:02, 4 February 2009 (UTC)

Character count colors in Recent changes

Glasbutton Tipp I noticed over at Wikia's Recent changes help page that it's possible to color-code the positive/negative numbers that indicate the change in amount of characters. They can be green for positive values and red for negative values. Might be kinda handy. -- Graft   talk   contributions  05:23, 22 April 2009 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment So I've now added this to my own monaco skin, and it's pretty nice. If you want to do the same, just copy the code on my page to your own User:USERNAME/Monaco.css (if you're not using monaco, I guess you just substitute the name of whatever skin you're using). Obviously, individual users can customize their own css, but I think the percentage that actually do is very low. I think this is just a rather harmless wiki-wide modification that most users would appreciate. -- Graft   talk   contributions  03:22, 26 April 2009 (UTC)

Pagetitle

Glasbutton Tipp Thanks to MediaWiki:Pagetitle-view-mainpage it is possible to give the mainpage another title than simply Lostpedia. Example: If you bookmark an article it says Galaga – Lostpedia. But if you bookmark the main page it just says Lostpedia and nothing else. For instance: If you visit Wikipedia you can read Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia at the very top of the page (but I'd prefer Lost instead of free ;-)) With this MediaWiki page we could also influence the result at Google and give it a better looking appearance. To my mind this looks much more professional. --DerAndre (talk) 15:43, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
Pictogram voting support I agree. Good idea. -- Graft   talk   contributions  16:29, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

Audio player/hosting

Glasbutton Tipp I don't actually know if this is currently possible, or if the wiki already has the proper extension. But I can think of several ways this would be helpful to explain and illustrate subject matter. Specifically, I would like to include short audio examples in musical score for illustration purposes with regard to musical sound effects and leitmotifs. Also there are a lot of Easter egg-type situations where it would be helpful to have an audio player; for instance there was a Find 815 video that when a small portion of audio was reversed, it was revealed to be Talbot from a video that hadn't been released yet. Stuff like that, short bits. Obviously not full length songs which would lead to copyright issues.
Pictogram voting support Yes -- Graft   talk   contributions  04:11, 1 February 2008 (PST)
Pictogram voting support Definite Yes - A great idea for things like hidden backward messages etc, another example being Walt's backwards messages. -random2502 16:37, 3 February 2008 (PST)

Pictogram voting support Yes Would also be useful for whispers.--TechNic|talk|conts 14:22, 10 March 2008 (PDT)
Pictogram voting comment 1. We have an extension to do this, though its not entirely functional. I would definitely be careful how this is used though... There is a limit to what we can reasonably use, and I could see many many users just uploading huge chunks of the shows audio.  Plkrtn  talk  contribs  email  05:30, 18 March 2008 (PDT)
Pictogram reply I agree with Plkrtn, use of this would have to be restricted, to the point that if people wanted to use it in articles, they perhaps should lodge an application of sorts on a specially created article or designated talk page. --Nickb123 (Talk) 04:38, 20 June 2008 (PDT)
Pictogram voting support Yes It's somewhat wierd to embed videos and not sound-clips.--Mc peko 07:40, 7 July 2008 (PDT)
Pictogram voting support Yes However with the issues already raised perhaps it is something only a sysop should be able to upload?--TokyoRose 14:35, 5 August 2008 (PDT)
Pictogram voting support Yes I think the wiki already comes with a built in .ogg media player in the core files. --JPB. T. C. E. 20:29, 25 August 2008 (PDT)
Pictogram voting comment Yes again Have someone looked into this? One solution would be to allow uploading of .mp3 files and simply link to them. Another solution could be to use links to another site that already deals with Lost audio, but if so we should ask them for an arrangement. We need limits on file-size, quality and length.--Mc peko 04:23, 31 August 2008 (PDT)
Pictogram voting support YES! Definitely yes for audio inclusion. Any progress on this ever being made? —Iimitk 22:47, 12 March 2009 (UTC)
Pictogram voting support This is something that would be beneficial for podcasts and certain sounds on the show (the monster comes to mind). We definitely need a policy drafted, and I don't think we want to allow MP3 files to be hosted here. We have to keep in mind the limits of fair use.

Templates for portal images

Glasbutton Tipp In order to maintain consistancy between how the portal image names are written, as well as being able to update everywhere which uses a portal image at once, I suggest we create templates simillar to the Template:Ep templates with each character's most recent portal image. An example would be {{portal|Jack Shephard}} returning the photo:

Jack-portal

As a further example, I the following code works (although only for Jack currently):

{{CharPortalAA|image={{PortalIMG|Jack Shephard}}|articlename=Jack Shephard|name=Jack}}

Which produces:

 Jack
Jack-portal
Pictogram voting question Pictogram conditionally voting support How complicated would this make the code? Very perhaps! I'm concerned that sometimes the code we use can alientate some of our users. Although this kind of code I suppose is for advanced users... Tentatively I say yes, but we have a limit on the amount of passthroughs on any one page I believe. Can't remember the figure. So tenative agree.  Plkrtn  talk  contribs  email  23:52, 23 February 2009 (UTC)
I added some sample code to show. I don't think it's particularly complicated, and could probably even be simplified further.  Jimbo the Tubby  talk  contributions  00:08, 24 February 2009 (UTC)
Pictogram voting support Agree The fact that the names for differnt characters/locations/items' portal pics are different really bugs me, ex. Jack's is "Portal-Jack.jpg", Ben's is "Ben-portal.jpg", Kate's is "Kateportal.jpg" or something like that (the names of these particular characters' portals are not as I wrote it now but you get the idea, lol). --Orhan94 20:00, 24 February 2009 (UTC)
Pictogram voting question Can we try a similar thing with the "mini images" maybe a template like this {{MiniIMG|Jack Shephard}} for Jack's mini image. --Orhan94 09:37, 2 March 2009 (UTC)
Pictogram voting support I think it looks really nice, and would be a more sophisticated way of managing these images. £乚ב○艹Ю Zholmboe Talk 15:00, 1 May 2009 (UTC)

Rollback guards

Glasbutton Tipp In addition to a special vandal page I'd suggest to give some users here rollback rights, so they're able to delete several vandal edits much faster. If these guards get a special template that they can use on their user pages (similar to the sysops' one) and an own category, they can be found very quickly and delete vandalism. Interested users could request this right on a submission page and if they match with the requirements (e.g. contributor since 2 months, 150 edits on articles, no admonishment, etc.) they can help to keep Lostpedia clean. --DerAndre (talk) 18:12, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

Pictogram voting commentMaybe the guards can even have their own color at MediaWiki:Common.css/highlight to highlight them on the recent changes and make them better visible to other users --DerAndre (talk) 18:21, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
Pictogram voting neutral As per the previous discussion about patrollers, which was voted against. --Orhan94 18:34, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
Pictogram voting support This is different than patrolling. I think it's a useful feature that can be used against vandals, but shouldn't be used for every day reverting.    Jabberwock    talk    contribs    email   - 19:11, 8 May 2009 (UTC)
Pictogram voting support I think that some users with rollback rights wouldn't be a bad thing. In the event of vandalism, it will allow those that obviously care for LP to help it. -- Plkrtn  talk  contribs  email  23:15, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

Collapsible Episode Navbox

Nominated By:  SawBucks  Talk  Contribs 

Glasbutton Tipp Ok, so there has been a lot arguing over the years about if we should include upcoming episode titles or not. We now only include the next ep and some people do still have a problem with this. I think it would be a really good idea to use THIS NAVBOX instead of THE CURRENT ONE. I tried to include all the information and links the current one has, but with the navbox I used, you can't place episodes parallel to each other as the current one does. It still looks alright, but the most important thing is that users who don't wish to see these spoilers, don't have to. The box can be changed however you wish, I just slapped it together. There's not much else that can be done to it however. While I think it's a good idea for users who don't want to see this info, I also think it will be a good addition because we will pretty much never have to talk about it again.

Pictogram voting support: As per above. -- SawBucks  Talk  Contribs  05:07, 16 May 2009 (UTC)
Pictogram voting support, although I hope we could come up with a slightly better formatting as I like the "table" look of the current Nav. But if we were to use this, there would no longer be a need to keep future episode titles off the wiki for those of us who enjoy seeing them. Everybody wins!  Jimbo the Tubby  talk  contributions  05:21, 16 May 2009 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment: Me and several other users including wikia staff tried to get the "table" look in there, but it's not possible as far as any of us could find out, which yeah, kinda sucks. You made the only point that really matters though, "everybody wins". Note: I accidentally used the wrong navbox while making this (It doesn't automatically collapse when you enter the page which is the entire point). Please give me a day or three to do this, but just use this as a basic outline or whatever to judge. Any ideas on how to make this "better" would also be appreciated.-- SawBucks  Talk  Contribs

Pictogram reply - Personally, I would have preferred us to stick to what we already had and just do what we did in Season 3 by hiding the episode name under a link like Episode 14. But I guess I'll settle for this, I like the lay out more than the one Sawbucks made.--Baker1000 23:44, 17 May 2009 (UTC)

      • Pictogram voting comment Blue Eagle's right, it would make more sense just to leave it collapsed, this information doesn't really need to be seen on every article anyway, The incident doesn't really have too much to with The Lie, it's just more of a see also thing, there's always the Season 5 page too.-- SawBucks  Talk  Contribs  09:14, 18 May 2009 (UTC)
        • Pictogram voting comment I understand that we should cater for international fans, but users following on the DVDs or iTunes see the episode title before they view it anyway. I can't imagine someone holding their hand over the titles on the DVD menu as not to be spoiled. ;)--Baker1000 19:43, 18 May 2009 (UTC)
          • Pictogram voting comment International users already have to deal with the titles for all aired episodes being everywhere on the wiki. It doesn't make a difference for seasons which have already aired and I also think it looks better uncollapsed. The whole point of creating the collapsable version was to protect users from episode titles they didn't want to see. This isn't relevant for aired seasons, so aesthetics should prevail.  Jimbo the Tubby  talk  contributions  03:40, 19 May 2009 (UTC)
Pictogram voting support I really like it Jabrwocky, accomplishes everything I set out to do but looks a lot better, great job. Baker...it was just something I slapped together to get the ball rolling :( ...Collapsible template's are not the easiest thing to work with unless you have one that already does exactly what you need it to do.-- SawBucks  Talk  Contribs  08:54, 18 May 2009 (UTC)
Pictogram voting support I like it, Jabrwocky. However, note that there is discussion at spoiler talk about displaying future episode titles. I don't think the collapsible navbox entirely solves that issue, and I have an alternate proposal in the discussion there. -- Graft   talk   contributions  20:46, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
Pictogram conditionally voting support I would like it if there was a way to make the template expand automatically. I would also like to see the template at the bottom of an episode. (When reading episodes one after the other I don't like having to go to the top when I'm all the way at the bottom. cgmv123TalkContribsE-mail 20:03, 23 May 2009 (UTC)

LP: Featured article selection

  • Nominated by :--Orhan94 23:50, 5 June 2009 (UTC)
  • As part of the Lostpedia:Rewatch, I propose we start re-featuring some articles (such as DHARMA is currently), especially articles that are relevant to the episodes re-watched that week and articles about the biggest mysteries of the show (The Monster), the game changing episodes (Through the Looking Glass) and events (The Purge), the most relevant locations (The Swan) and the most important characters (Jack Shephard). As there are still a lot of articles that deserve to be featured, I propose that we focus more on featuring article relevant to the storyline according to the re-watched episodes, with a possibility of re-featuring articles (The Swan and Libby for Season 2, The Others and The Hydra for Season 3, Charles Widmore and Kahana for Season 4, Jughead (bomb) and DHARMA logos for Season 5). While nominating article on LP:FAS, users may point out when they think that the proposed episode should be featured. --Orhan94 23:50, 5 June 2009 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting support The Refeature would go well with the Rewatch. --Blueeagleislander 03:12, 6 June 2009 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting support There are many articles that deserve to be refeatured. -- CTS  Talk   Contribs 03:28, 6 June 2009 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment I proposed several articles for the following weeks, some of them being already featured articles such as Ethan Rom or the Whispers. --Orhan94 11:28, 7 June 2009 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting support This way we will still have lots of featured articles to use throughout the eight-month hiatus.-- Steele  talk  contribs  18:56, 7 June 2009 (UTC)
