Do you know a reason why Schulz decided to break up the Peppermint Patty/Pig-Pen relationship? (PeppermintPen?)

No. Like you said, the reason is unknown. Simon Peter Hughes (talk) 00:19, June 1, 2017 (UTC)

While I have no specific evidence to back this up, and I never consulted Mr. Schulz on this and frankly don't know his views on this, having been involved with the cartoon at an early age it seems that Peppermint Patty segued into a relationship with Marcy.

dose Lydia and Eudora appear in any special or any episodes of the Charlie Brown and Snoopy show?

Hello! Glad to meet you.

Hello, Mr. Hughes. I'm MetaKnightFan4. I've been reading on this wiki for over a year, and I decided to join as an editor. Pleased to meet you. I'm brand new to editing on Wikia, so I might make some mistakes. If you come across any errors I make, I sincerely apologize in advance. Thanks for making this a great wiki, and I look forward to helping here. MetaKnightFan4 (talk) 14:40, August 12, 2017 (UTC) MetaKnightFan4

Sometimes I'll respond to general posts on Simon's talk page--I don't think he minds. Let me personally welcome you and ensure that any mistakes made by someone who wants to help are not a big deal--we're happy to have you. Let me know if you feel like you need help. —Justin (koavf)·T·C·M 16:18, August 12, 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for the welcome! I'm glad to meet you. And thank you for the notification, and it's comforting to know that it's not a big deal. Thanks again! MetaKnightFan4 (talk) 18:42, August 12, 2017 (UTC)MetaKnightFan4
And I'll personally greet you too and echo what Koavf just said. Simon Peter Hughes (talk) 03:11, August 13, 2017 (UTC)
Thanks again! Glad to join the group. MetaKnightFan4 (talk) 01:24, August 14, 2017 (UTC)MetaKnightFan4


I was wondering if it would be okay to make infoboxes for the songs. It would probably have categories like, "Media", "Performers", "Composer" and "Previous/Next Song" (for stuff from musicals/musical shorts). Would that be alright?

Neverland8 (talk) 22:42, August 15, 2017 (UTC)

Hi, I was also wondering if it'd be okay to make an infobox for the musicals. I know there's only two, but I think it'd be helpful to have if you're okay with that. Let me know if that's okay, and thanks! Everyone here is super nice! :D

Neverland8 (talk) 21:11, August 27, 2017 (UTC)

Thanks so much! I have another idea for the musical stuff (sorry I'm super focused on those, the two musicals are kinda my special interest rn). For the songs that have alternate/changed lyrics, I was wondering if I could try to do "hide/show" templates for the alternate choices (similar to the hide/show templates under the History Section on This Wiki . Or, possibly, under the Lyrics section here . Thanks!

Neverland8 (talk) 16:48, August 29, 2017 (UTC)

Would it also be alright to make infoboxes for Actors/People who've worked on Peanuts stuff? I'm sorry if I'm getting annoying in asking for everything, I just don't want to do anything wrong.

Neverland8 (talk) 00:21, September 1, 2017 (UTC)

Thanks :D

Neverland8 (talk) 17:57, September 1, 2017 (UTC)


Respectfully disagree here, Broomstick is very much a character within the context of Sally's imagination. He is a horse. Yeah, manifested via a broom, but compare for example Lily's Driftwood Bay where the majority of the cast are pieces of driftwood that a girl is playing pretend with.

Surely wencould at least list Broomstick on Sally's page or a list of minor chars. How about the Great Pumpkin for comparison? Also inanimate. talk2ty 06:40, August 27, 2017 (UTC)


HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MR. HUGHES!!! I hope you have a GREAT time. I'm sorry I haven't been around lately. School came, and I got busy. I'll try to still be able to help out, however. Have a great birthday! MetaKnightFan4 (talk) 00:15, August 30, 2017 (UTC)MetaKnightFan4

Oh! It's your birthday! Happy Birthday!!!

A Question Regarding what's Canon

Hi! I wanted to ask a question about Peanuts, and figured I would ask you. Now, I know the TV specials are non-canon, and the movies are also. However, the entire collection of the nearly 50 years worth of strips is all canon. (I think.) What I want to ask is, what about the stories and whatnot that Schulz himself wrote, specifically the collection of 7 story comics shown in Volume 26 of The Complete Peanuts? (I'm assuming you have it.) Are those canon, as Schulz wrote those himself and they're basically larger comics, or are they not, not being part of the core strip? MetaKnightFan4 (talk) 12:34, September 13, 2017 (UTC)metaknightfan4

Unused files

We have so many unused and really unnecessary files here. I have proposed deleting them en masse. What do you think? 23:16, October 7, 2017 (UTC)

Yes, I think that's the right thing to do. Simon Peter Hughes (talk) 04:04, October 8, 2017 (UTC)


Have you seen this? (koavf)·T·C·M 10:55, October 8, 2017 (UTC)

Please have a look at these two and give your feedback

Especially the latter. Thanks. —Justin (koavf)·T·C·M 23:49, October 8, 2017 (UTC) 

Hi! I know I'm not Mr. Hughes, but I'm still willing to help. I have access to one of those Peanuts Strips that needs dated, so I can find that later. I'll also try to help out with the other stuff. MetaKnightFan4 (talk) 00:13, October 9, 2017 (UTC)
Thanks a lot, Meta. Anything is appreciated. —Justin (koavf)·T·C·M 04:00, October 9, 2017 (UTC)

Feedback requested

Please see Category:Strips collected in The Complete Peanuts, Volume 01. What do you think? —Justin (koavf)·T·C·M 03:56, October 14, 2017 (UTC)

it looks nice. What else do you want me to say? Simon Peter Hughes (talk) 10:32, October 14, 2017 (UTC)
Does it make sense as a navigation scheme, is there anything missing, is anything confusing? —Justin (koavf)·T·C·M 18:00, October 14, 2017 (UTC)
Just a ping here. Also, can you take a look at my suggestions on the to do list and tell me what you think or propose more of your own? I value your input a lot and I don't want to go rogue and make a fundamental change without your feedback or at least benign neglect. —Justin (koavf)·T·C·M 01:42, October 26, 2017 (UTC)
Also, do you want to take the lead on formatting all those new comic strip pages by Seeyan? I don't want to take it for granted that you'll do it but you usually do. Thanks. —Justin (koavf)·T·C·M 01:43, October 26, 2017 (UTC)


Please don't delete the pages. I need time to upload one pic by one pic...

If you delete, I have to re-do all the things again. Thanks! (unsigned by User:Seeyan)

The Mayor

I apologize for creating the Mayor page with so little info. I was intenting to add more info later on if not someone would back me up. I hope it wasen't any trouble. TheGreenBeetle (talk) 03:40, October 23, 2017 (UTC)TheGreenBeetle

It's not a problem as such but in this case, there's nothing more to say about the character. What else could be added? —Justin (koavf)·T·C·M 08:16, October 23, 2017 (UTC)
Exactly. The problem wasn't that the page was a stub, it was that it would always stay a s stub. Simon Peter Hughes (talk) 12:22, October 23, 2017 (UTC)
And in the case of some stubs, creating a redirect is very helpful. Just incorporate that content into a bigger article and that the original short one can be useful. In this case, I don't think it's very likely that anyone will search for "The Mayor" or if he does, will not necessarily be looking for this character. —Justin (koavf)·T·C·M 17:24, October 23, 2017 (UTC)

Hi Hughes

So sorry for making fun of you 7Up11 19:59, November 2, 2017 (UTC)

Dolores, etc.

Thanks for that. What video are you referencing here? —Justin (koavf)·T·C·M 17:37, November 8, 2017 (UTC)

Here's the trick: I use Monobook and you (evidently) use the default skin. When I open a private browsing window, I see the video. :/ —Justin (koavf)·T·C·M 06:48, November 9, 2017 (UTC)
Well that explains that mystery. What do you think of the video? Simon Peter Hughes (talk) 06:50, November 9, 2017 (UTC)
Agreed: it's low-hanging fruit, "pivot to video"-style video which is fine enough but does not really give you any meaningful context, fudges on some facts, provides no value to the wiki, and makes it slitely less user friendly. Also, being consulted first would have been nice. —Justin (koavf)·T·C·M 07:18, November 9, 2017 (UTC)

Just in case


I'd better store this image here, just in case. `Simon Peter Hughes (talk) 03:57, November 22, 2017 (UTC)

When Will "The Peanuts Movie" make its network debut?

I'm guessing in the next few months

My edit on Charlie Brown

I only removed the dead-link photo, added missing tag, re-positioned texts, removed underscores, and transferred the photo of Charlie kissing the LRHG to his relationship with the said character section.

RGL Victor (talk) 12:34, February 12, 2018 (UTC)

Well, like I said, please provide an edit summary when you remove content from a page. Simon Peter Hughes (talk) 02:06, February 13, 2018 (UTC)

Hello. Could you please delete the "Tiny Toon Adventures" page? It's not even part of Peanuts.

Actually, forget it.

Main Page

Hello Simon, I'd just like to inform you of a small error on the main page: In the "Other Comic Strip Wikis" section, the "Garfield wiki" (where I'm an administrator) is written "Garfrield". All thanks in advance.

Sunday, Sept 13 1953: colorful humor; Linus patting birds debut; pic thumb other than mini full-pic?

Hello Simon! A few questions:

The strip of Sunday, September 13, 1953 centers on seeing Schroeder turn "three shades of green", but in black-and-white the humor of this is essentially lost. Would it be permissible to replace the existing image with one where the three full-images of Schroeder turning green are in color; and could a 900-pixel wide main image, as is used in the later era, be used here (while the thumb on the September page itself would still be 600 pixels, like the other strips on the page)?

Second, the article on "Patting birds" mentions the first time Linus did this in the strip in 1962; however, this idea actually first appeared back in 1959, in the first 8-page interior story in Dell Comics' Four Color/Peanuts #1015, issue-dated Aug-Oct '59. Viewing it, I'm certain this story is by Schulz himself (besides the fact that it was issued contemporaneously with Nancy #169, where the Peanuts story is well-established as Schulz's, so this time frame for Schulz's own contribution to Dell comics is already known); but even if his authorship is not definitively stated, the fact remains that it IS an authorized Peanuts story specifically depicting Linus patting birds on the head, and it should be acknowledged as this trope's proper origin. Anyway, I want to include an excerpt of this story to be linked from the article; specifically, the full story runs over 60 panels, and I have devised an 18-panel sampling of it, in a "collage-style" since it's not a continual run of the story's panels, and I have arranged it 3 panels across by 6 down, in color. I'm mainly wondering what would be the acceptable size for this overall image; if it's sized 900 pixels across then its height is 1500 pixels — is this an acceptable size? Also, this item leads me to a related question: I wouldn't really want the thumbnail to be the entire image shrunk down to show 18 tiny panels — does this wiki have a feature to allow the thumbnail for a linked image to be something other than the full image in miniature (I'm thinking of a four-panel-arranged-2x2 thumbnail)?

Thanks! Cat Noir's Pawse (talk) 00:23, August 8, 2018 (UTC)

A Comic Union

Good day to you, Simon Peter Hughes,

To introduce myself, I am an administrator on the Garfield wiki, along with two others, namely TeeJay87 and Low Spark of Lyman. As of late, we've been thinking of building an alliance with you, hopefully alongside the Calvin and Hobbes wiki (provided they accept). It shall be a union between wikis concerning comics strips. If you'd like, we can negotiate further conditions, and ultimately build up the union. We hope you will accept our offer. Best wishes, Cooljoe01.

Cooljoe01 (Talk) (24 Jan 2019 11:14 PM SAST) 21:14, January 24, 2019 (UTC)

Tho don't want to step on Simon's toes, I am interested in hearing more. What would this look like? How would anything be different? —Justin (koavf)·T·C 07:27, January 27, 2019 (UTC)
You're not stepping on my toes. I've already responded and said that I'm interested here on Garfield Wiki. Cooljoe01 said that he's like to hear from you too. Simon Peter Hughes (talk) 07:36, January 27, 2019 (UTC)
Brilliant. If you are driving it, there is no reason for me to insert myself but it's nice of you and Joe to ask for my interest. —Justin (koavf)·T·C 09:37, January 27, 2019 (UTC)
Actually Koavf, we also want you to be part of our union. Since you are an active admin, you and Simon have the choices to both be part of the union, and you'll both have the choice of voicing your own opinions. The next port of call, is to find speedy communication tool. The current Garfield wiki administrators use Discord, but it isn't completely necessary. We are happy to have you both on board. Cooljoe01 (Talk) (27 Jan 2019 1:43 PM SAST) 11:43, January 27, 2019 (UTC)
Right then, when shall you fellows be free to discuss the matter? Cooljoe01 (Talk) (31 Jan 2019 2:31 PM SAST) 12:31, January 31, 2019 (UTC)
Well, not until after Tuesday. i'm going away on holiday tomorrow (Friday 1 February). I'll be back on Tuesday 5 February. Simon Peter Hughes (talk)
I really shouldn't be a dependency. You can work out whatever you need with Simon and I can just get whatever relevant facts afterword. Thanks to you both. —Justin (koavf)·T·C 15:48, January 31, 2019 (UTC)

As promised, I have the rules done. If you have an opposition to any, just notify me:

1) – No wiki is above all, and each have their equal say.
2) – The union system shall run under a democratic rule. Voting shall take place among the administrators in order to introduce or argue about new/old rules, provided they have a rational argument.
3) Each administrator is entitled to their opinion, and with a provided rational argument, can change their views whenever they feel it to be necessary.
4) – Wikis are not held to their position, and can exit or rejoin whenever they feel it to be a choice idea. This doesn’t apply to wikis previously ousted from the union for the specific reasoning.
5) – Any type of vandalism is disagreed upon, and any administrator who exhibits any behaviour of the kind will be ousted.
6) – If a contributor brings forth an idea to any member of the union, members will need to give their opinions, and ultimately decide if it’s needed or not.
7) – If a union wiki is in need of assistance concerning maintenance (i.e. articles, images, etc.), voluntary help can be provided by other union members. Union members can back out if they suddenly become unavailable.
8) – If a union wiki is in need of assistance concerning translation into a foreign language, voluntary help can be provided by other union members. Union members can back out if they suddenly become unavailable.
9) – In the case of a large-scale vandal attack, all union members will be granted temporary administrative positions in order to co-cooperatively combat the happenings.
10) – Aggressive arguments should be overall be avoided by union members, and general friendliness should be exhibited.

Cooljoe01 (Talk) (16 Feb 2019 12:45 AM SAST)

I have no objections. This union should be interesting. Simon Peter Hughes (talk) 11:52, February 16, 2019 (UTC)

SEO File Page Test

Hey Simon!

I'm here to let you know that Fandom has been in the midst of conducting an SEO test on some wikis, and this test is now being expanded to include the Peanuts Wiki! It aims at improving the search engine ranking for Fandom communities.

Some details: Anonymous/non logged-in users who land on file pages will be automatically redirected to the first article page that the file is used on. For example, if they click "" on Google, it will instead link them to the Charlie Brown page. Fandom hopes that this will have a positive impact on search engine rankings and help anonymous users (who are usually clueless about wikis) find what they're looking for more easily.

Logged-in users will see absolutely no change, so you may not notice anything of this test, but I just wanted to give you a heads up anyway, in case any anonymous users reach out to you with questions. 

If you have any questions of your own, please let me know :) —idekmandy 05:08, August 8, 2019 (UTC)

Is 5 more of a minor character or could be classified as supporting since he appeared for a decade or two?

Although 5 continued to appear in the strip off and on for twenty years, he stopped being the focus of many strips after a matter of weeks and then faded into the background. In the fifty year history of Peanuts, he's a very minor character. Simon Peter Hughes (talk)

Regarding my edits on "Good Sport"

I know it happened a year ago, but I just have to ask, what did you mean by "checking" my edits by reverting them and then un-reverting? --1RichardHunt (talk) 07:04, December 4, 2019 (UTC)

Unless it was done by an editor I know and trust very well, I check every edit to this wiki to see if it's vandalism, badly written, incorrect or a problem for some other reason. If somebody I don't know has made a lot of edits to a page, the quickest and easiest way for me to check all the changes is to rollback. That takes a lot less time than looking at each difference in the edit history. If the changes are good, I'll then undo my rollback. Simon Peter Hughes (talk)

You undid an edit of mine because you misread my change. On the Frieda page of the Peanuts wiki, I included an addition that pointed out that Frieda does wear a baseball cap on occasion and inserted the April 18, 1965 Sunday strip as an example of her doing this. You removed my edit, claiming that April 18, 1985 was not a Sunday.  If you would just examine my edit again, you would see that I said 1965, not 1985. April 18, 1965 was indeed a Sunday, and as you can see, Frieda is indeed wearing a ballcap, as you can see here: Please read more carefully in the future to avoid mistakes like this.

Your new Wiki Manager

Hey there, I'm MakeShift, and I've been assigned to take over as your Wiki Manager for the Peanuts Wiki! I'm here to help you guys and act as a sort of "liaison" between you and full-time Fandom staff, and to generally help you make sure your wiki's in tip-top shape.

Also, while I'm introducing myself, I might bring up Fandom's latest project, in case you're unfamiliar with it, the Unified Community Platform, or UCP. In how the UCP affects the general user, the project will seek to make editing and getting around wikis a whole lot easier, so it's nothing but an upgrade in terms of editing and content creation, and a bonafide benefit to all.

I'll be here during the whole process and well past it to help with any concerns you guys might have, so by all means don't hesitate to contact me if you need an assist! —MakeShift (talk · contribs) 03:14, February 28, 2020 (UTC)


Woodstock first appearance is 4.4.1967, NOT 3.4.1966.

Seeyan (talk) 04:43, February 28, 2020 (UTC)Seeyan

That's not what our article says. And I suggest you discuss this on the Woodstock article talk page before making any further changes. Simon Peter Hughes (talk) 04:50, February 28, 2020 (UTC)

Thank you for your additions to the two pages I added, Mrs. Bartley and Mrs. Nelson. In reading the Peanuts strip years ago, I remember this as being one of my favorite story lines in the series, and I felt that these two unseen characters deserved to be included. I'm also relieved that no one seems to think these two are unworthy of inclusion and deleted my additions. PJC65 (talk) 14:28, March 7, 2020 (UTC)

Block request

Simon, can you block a user called "User:THE WORST FAN2045"? He said F*** You on his own page User:MickeyMouseLover2001

There is no such user. Special:Contributions/THE_WORST_FAN2045. Please give titles to your new threads and sign them. —Justin (koavf)·T·C 17:42, March 20, 2020 (UTC)
I've hound and blocked the right offending user. Simon Peter Hughes (talk) 18:02, March 20, 2020 (UTC)

Main page best practices

Hey there Simon, hope you're well! I was hoping to run something by you and just get your approval before doing it. Current best practices for main pages recommend that you remove the "Home" heading - would you mind if I went ahead with this? I personally reckon it makes the main page look a whole lot sleeker, but I of course wanted to make sure you were okay with it first! —MakeShift (talk · contribs) 03:08, May 2, 2020 (UTC)

Sounds fine. Go ahead. Simon Peter Hughes (talk) 13:08, May 2, 2020 (UTC)

Wikilivres is back

Do you know anything about this? (koavf)·T·C 02:50, May 3, 2020 (UTC)

That's news to me. None of the links appear to work though, apart from the one to privacy policy in the banner at the top. All of the other links I clicked on just linked back to the main page. Also, I remember that I kept on editing it, while it kept get frustratingly slower and slower, until the start of August 2019. But those recent changes end in May 2019. So it looks like some work has been lost. I'll keep an eye on it in the coming days. But I think I'm already at peak wiki now and that site has caused me enough frustration over the years. So I don't think I'll contribute to it again. Simon Peter Hughes (talk) 07:53, May 3, 2020 (UTC)

Names in Other Languages

I would like a section for name translations to exist, much like on most wikis today.RileyGronlundSuperMario (talk) 04:40, May 21, 2020 (UTC)

That sounds fine to me. Just remember to write the heading as "Names in other languages" without a capital O or L. Simon Peter Hughes (talk) 06:32, May 21, 2020 (UTC)

Character Species Name

I was kind of wondering what species the characters of Peanuts belonged to. They are humanoid, but had eyes that are similar to Sprixies from Super Mario 3D World. Their eyes can actually move to show which direction the beings are facing. The head is usually bean-shaped, though some exceptions do exist, as Charlie Brown has a spherical head. The beings have similar culture to real-world humans. I just want to know what to call them. The Physical Data is below. Send me a reply when you come up with a potential term.RileyGronlundSuperMario (talk) 23:06, June 17, 2020 (UTC)

Physical Data

  • Size:
    • Juvenile: Often 2 feet (0.6 metres)
    • Adolescent: Often 5 feet (1.5 metres)
    • Adult: Around 6 feet (1.8 metres)
  • Alignment: Variable
  • Body Frame: Humanoid
  • Lifespan: 75 (?) years
  • Notable Members:
    • Just about every character
  • Subspecies:
    • Dogs that have some human traits.
  • Sentient?: Yes.
  • Gender Ratio: Around 50-50.
  • Sexual Dimorphism?: Yes. (subtle in juveniles)
  • Universe: Peanuts
  • Home-world: Planet similar to our Earth.
  • Languages: Their language plus all "real" languages.
  • Technology Level: Modern Era
  • Created: October 2, 1950
  • Creator: Charles M. Schulz
You can think of the characters as being whatever species you like. But please keep your fan theories about them off this wiki's article pages. Simon Peter Hughes (talk) 05:50, June 18, 2020 (UTC)

New Wiki Manager

Hey Simon, how are you? I'm Lostris, the Wiki Manager assigned to take over from MakeShift (who in turn took over from Mandy). Like them before me, I'm not here to take over anything, quite the opposite even. As Wiki Manager, I want to work with you to improve on what is already a stellar wiki community. As such, I'm here to serve as your direct line to a full-time Fandom staff member, as well as provide support on a more local level by helping to resolve issues, assist with design updates, or come to you with some suggestions that could make this community even better to name a few examples. So if you have any questions or instances for which you would normally use Zendesk, you can now just reach out to me, and I'll do my best to provide you with an answer. Looking forward to getting to know you :-) Lady Lostris / 9?cb=20190922130322 SOAP 10:16, 20 September 2020 (UTC)

Happy 70th anniversary of Peanuts!

Happy 70th anniversary of Peanuts! Cat Noir's Pawse (talk) 19:55, 2 October 2020 (UTC)

Thank you. And a belated happy anniversary to you too. Simon Peter Hughes (talk) 12:38, 3 October 2020 (UTC)
Thanks! Cat Noir's Pawse (talk) 17:07, 3 October 2020 (UTC)

Character Eyes

I noticed that most characters have black dots that shift depending on which way they look for eyes. I tend to imagine that those eyes would be black in real life with white pupils, similar to a Sprixie or a Mushroomer from the Super Mario franchise. Give me your opinion if you dissent.

You can think whatever you like. I have no opinion. Simon Peter Hughes (talk) 03:07, 4 October 2020 (UTC)

Checking in

Hey Simon, I hope you're doing well. I just wanted to drop by and check in with you about how everything is going around here. The migration to UCP was a while ago, but I wanted to know if everything happened smoothly and what you think about the new platform. I'd love to hear your experience about working on UCP, both the good and the bad.

If there is anything else I could be of assistance with, don't hesitate to reach out to me! Lady Lostris / 9?cb=20190922130322 SOAP 21:11, 22 October 2020 (UTC)

Hey Simon, nice to hear back from you. No need to apologize, I thank you for your candor, really, as well as for sharing some positive parts of the platform. I understand your possible frustration about the changes, as there are definite parts of the editor that are a cause of frustration for power editors.
In relation to what you reported, that is far from ideal behavior indeed. I created a ticket for that, so hopefully it'll get fixed soon. Thank you for bringing that to my attention. If you find more bugs or other things you'd like to share, don't hesitate to reach out to me! Lady Lostris / 9?cb=20190922130322 SOAP 16:06, 30 October 2020 (UTC)
Haha, funny you should report that again: I encountered it myself yesterday as well after deleting a vandalism page with an unsavory title. Thanks to your report, I actually paid attention to it, which I may not have done otherwise and was thus able to screenshot the behavior and add it to the ticket. Just for future references, reporting stuff with a link and screenshot to the experienced behavior is always best, as some things are just hard to explain and that way it is made easier for us to try to duplicate the behavior.
Lol, the Great Pumpkin brought more stricter anti-covid measures and a semi-lock down, soooo ... XD but Happy Halloween for you too! Lady Lostris / 9?cb=20190922130322 SOAP 10:53, 31 October 2020 (UTC)

Tell this editor to stop correcting the name “Mississippi”.

This user, Donovanmcdonough, keeps correcting the name “Mississippi” on the page Edgar Allan Poe. Could you please tell him to stop correcting that name? The reason why is because if he doesn’t, he’ll be banned from the Peanuts Wiki page. This is what I’m talking about:

Please help me find a resolution to this as soon as possible. AdamDeanHall (talk) 16:52, 4 December 2020 (UTC)

End of year feedback

Hey Simong, 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!

Typo on Featured Comic Strip section of Main Page

There is a typo on the Featured Comic Strip section of the Main Page: December 16, 1970, not 1950, was the 200th anniversary of Beethoven's birth.

Kh122201 (talk) 12:02, 12 December 2020 (UTC)

Thank you for pointing that out. I've now fixed it. Simon Peter Hughes (talk) 06:07, 13 December 2020 (UTC)

Missing comics?

Hey Simon, first and for all, happy holidays! I hope you were able to celebrate and enjoy yourself!

I was contacted on Community Central as someone can only see the first three comics in any month while they used to be able to view them all. Having checked out some random comic pages. I seem to be able to see more than three images. Do you perhaps have an idea what they could be referring to? Thanks beforehand for your insights! Lady Lostris / 9?cb=20190922130322 SOAP 22:08, 28 December 2020 (UTC)

They're all displaying absolutely fine for me. I would guess it's a problem with the user's device. Simon Peter Hughes (talk) 05:13, 29 December 2020 (UTC)
Sorry for the late reply. I am seeing the same thing as you. Thank you for looking into this as well though! Lady Lostris / 9?cb=20190922130322 SOAP 19:26, 3 January 2021 (UTC)


I am from the Big Nate Comments Wiki a wiki focused on the wacky antics of the BNCS.

Our wiki used to be very high ranked on WAM but is a bit low now that the UCP update came.

I will encourage my users to join here if we can have a partnership.

Please consider this

Charlie Brown films

Do you know why Rerun van Pelt, Lydia and Eudora were absent in The Peanuts movie?

do u think it’s seemed a bit odd that Rerun wasn’t in or even mentioned in happiest is a warm blanket Charlie Brown

No, not really. It's not possible to fit all the characters into every animated adaptation. And Happiness is a Warm Blanket, Charlie Brown has a very retro, circa 1965 look and feel to it, harking back to a time before Rerun was created. Simon Peter Hughes (talk) 12:38, 18 January 2021 (UTC)

Unnecessary Image Changes

A user named KingPaula replaced the images for some of the pages on this wiki with un-Peanuts related GIF's, (Including Lucy van Pelt's page) I reverted two of them including Lucy's but I re-reverted them back to the replacement because I wanted you to see what he did. I suggest all those images on all those pages will be reverted back immediately, or else ill never this wiki the same way again. Please I'm a big peanuts fan and I'm very upset to the point of tears, and I want them changed back now. Pleeeeeeeeaaaaaaaassssssssseeeeee????!!!!!!!!

-RobertTheLogoMan (talk) 10:40, January 26, 2021 (UTC)

It's okay, I just reverted them. --1RichardHunt (talk) 23:51, 26 January 2021 (UTC)

Change in Wiki Representative

New Wiki Representative

Hey Simon, it's been a while, I hope you're doing well. I just wanted to take a moment to give you a last update as your Wiki Manager: while I loved being there for you and this community, I'm being reassigned and a new Wiki Representative will take over from me to look after this community, namely MarkusRost. This means that he will from now on be your point of contact for whatever it is you previously reached out to me and will assist the best he can to help this community grow.

I do want to thank you for the pleasant cooperation and for having been so welcoming to me. I wish you all the best. Cheers! Lady Lostris / 9?cb=20190922130322 SOAP 00:00, 15 February 2021 (UTC)
