Trivia additions

Hello!

I've attended a few "meet the author" book signings at American Girl and found out some pretty cool trivia. I was curious if I am able to post it on the respective pages since I have no way of backing up a statement.

Thank-you for your time,

NutmegMary (talk) 04:33, October 26, 2014 (UTC)NutmegMary

If possible, email the authors regarding these bits of trivia. If/when you get a response, you may add them to any relevant articles, and add the responses by either copying/pasting the email text, or uploading a screencap with the relevant information to that article's talk page. A good example is Cécile Rey's talk page when I emailed American Girl themselves to verify Cécile and Marie-Grace's birthdays prior to their release in 2011. --AkaiKaze (talk) 04:49, October 26, 2014 (UTC)

Hey there!

We just created a new Toy Wiki Template. Check it out here! Are you interested in featuring it on your main page? You can add it with the code {{w:ToyWikis}}. Let me know if you have any questions!

Thanks so much, Asnow89 @@fandom (profile)•(talk) 20:39, April 6, 2015 (UTC)

Hello, I just wanted to ask something. Should we add Maryellen Larkin to those Historical Characters boxes you see under each Historical Girl. Please respond, thank you.

Just A Question

Is Josefina basically this doll with different eyebrows and hair? Do they have the same skin color? (Bionicbella (talk) 00:34, May 22, 2015 (UTC))

Pictures of AG Products

Since the AG site was revamped, how are you able to take pictures of the products?

On edits, Part 1

Hi,

a few days ago I edited the Campus Cheer Gear page and noticed that later that evening you had taken down all my edits. Why?

I am new to the wiki and so if I have made a mistake please let me know. If there is something I'm supposed to do before I start editing, then I was not aware of it and I would really appreciate it if you could tell me what I'm supposed to do.

Thanks,

On edits, Part 2

Hi AkaiKaze,

I have recently edited a few stubs to help out the wiki and I remembered that you could get banned for one week for having 2 short articles. I have edited about five of them because I was so addicted to helping the wiki and now I could get banned. For example, I edited the zip ankle boots and there is not really anything to describe about, so if the article has a short description, does that mean I'm banned now.

I know this is a pointless question, but how do you leave/retire an account? I think i'm leaving here, because my editing is crappy

Lovemelodygirl (talk) 23:51, September 26, 2015 (UTC)

Remember

I think I might leave this wiki. -- Lovemelodygirl (talk) 11:15, October 4, 2015‎

First, sign your posts.
Second, if you don't want to contribute anymore to this wiki, you can just leave. No one's stopping you. If you're looking to delete your Wikia account, this isn't the place and I'm not the person to ask. You could just use this page instead. --AkaiKaze (talk) 18:41, October 4, 2015 (UTC)

comment section

Can we make a comment section?

Sure, you might not want people sharing their opinions and offending anyone, but that is just a part of life. So, can you please make a comment section?

Is there a way to make a comment section?

I feel bad about asking this because I feel like many other people asked this before. A comment section would be a good addition to this wiki. People could share their opinions on dolls, books, and movies. They could tell beginners how to do stuff on wiki.

This unsigned comment was posted by Bronyinplaid

As the other admin of the Wiki, I am adamant that we don't need a comment section. This is a topic which tends to have members that are young girls who prefer to talk about their personal dolls, and a comment section would lead to distraction. If people want to make free and open comments, there are many forums dedicated to American Girl around the internet where they can do such. We have no need. Nethilia (talk) 09:44, October 27, 2015 (UTC)

Vandal

This new user who edited the Josefina and Caroline pages/articles is a global vandal. She vandalizes wikis and came on the Shopkins Wiki (my main wiki), and spammed and put inappropiate material into articles. I recommend you ban her (the user who informed me was BackyardigansKaibigan).  Lovemelodygirl (talk) 00:52, November 1, 2015 (UTC)

Silver eye

Hi! Before I edit about silver eye. Doesn't silver eye come from water cuz I heard alot people say that. Should I edit it or no? Thx :P

Saraapril100 (talk) 21:56, November 14, 2015 (UTC)Anna

If you're not sure whether to add/edit/remove anything, use that article's talk page. So here's the Talk:Silver Eye talk page. --AkaiKaze (talk) 18:24, November 15, 2015 (UTC)

Directions

If we say something directional, for example "There is a bow on the right shoulder", should we do it by our right or the dolls right? (unsigned comment posted by Jlammers000 at 12:33 pm, Jan 16, 2016)

One: Sign on talk pages using ~~~~ (four tildes) or the signature button. Two, the doll's right, since they are the ones wearing the article in question. Three, your descriptions are not thorough enough and have been cleaned out. Go look at other articles for examples. Nethilia (talk) 23:17, January 10, 2016 (UTC)

I am a new user, and did play around in the sandbox before trying to edit a page, and I saw that my edit was deleted for not being specific enough. I tried to model it after one of the existing entries, but if it was not good enough, could you please tell me more specifically what I did wrong and tell me specifically how I should fix it. Jlammers000 (talk) 00:10, January 18, 2016 (UTC)jlammers000

You might want to consider giving the Basic Rules section of the Article Creation Policy a look if you want to know what kind of descriptions the wiki looks for. You can always look at fleshed out articles (eg. Samantha's Special Day Dress, Grace's Baking Outfit) if you want examples. --AkaiKaze (talk) 07:03, January 18, 2016 (UTC)

Hospital comment, Neth is assuming?

i didnt remove the band aide sticker because osnt that what cpmes on the box. this unsigned comment was made by Rayray1234 on 12:24, March 18, 2016 (UTC)

After taking a few moments to decipher the gibberish you wrote (and honestly, use a spellcheck, considering you're on a wiki that delves with literature and by extension, reading/writing), I was under the impression that a doll-sized band-aid sticker that originally came with a doll's return from the Hospital had been removed, not the giant band-aid sticker that serves as the Hospital logo. --AkaiKaze (talk) 05:47, March 20, 2016 (UTC)

Hello AkaiKaze, AG Customer Service told me a few days ago that Just Like You 46 is now retired. However, they have some exciting plans for #46 next year.

Primo grade excellent behavior of how not to behave on the Internets

All this is based on my OPINION and treatment from this site.

I was new to editing. I signed up so I can help. I was suspended from editing on May 6th for a MONTH, by the owner of the site, for trying to provide the correct and helpful information. I was getting upset that my edits were deleted. I asked ppl to stop deleting my edits. {Little did I know only a couple could edit at the time.} When I did ask ppl to stop editing, that's when I got suspended. I even sent a email to the owner about my wrongful delete, suspension and treatment. I never got a response.

So on June 6th my suspension was over, so I tried again on the 11th of June. I edited the Samantha Doll and Cranberry Dress because some of the information was INCORRECT!! On Samantha's Cranberry Dress the pictures were reversed, some of the info was incorrect, so I changed them. Added a small note for collectors under trivia plus added what was included in the box. To my dismay, AkaiKaze delete my edits and call them BAD EDITS?? I have the actual 1986 Cranberry Dress. This I can prove with a picture and what the 1987 catalog shows included in the box.

I based my edits ON FACT from the ACTUAL catalogs itself!!! AGw ask ppl, to edit, to help them grow but I see I'm not the only one who's edits are being deleted, according to AkaiKaze talk page. I'm going to offer "my opinion" on Ebay or my blog about AGw site. "My opinion" is based on the catalog information and what American Girl wiki provides about Samantha's Archived Collection. I don't know about the other dolls collections but the possibility is there. So if American Girl wiki doesn't want the help from the ppl, I'll be offering  "my opinion and help" to others so they can find the right information. This is important for collectors or new collectors when buying online.

Good Day.

Everything I listed above is true, fact and can be proven. The above is in my opinion and others who read this may or may not be in agreement, if not, it's based on their opinion, not mine. I have nothing against American Girl wiki, it would be a GREAT site, full of valuable information if it had correct information. (correct information meaning according to catalogs) Example, Samantha's Archived Cranberry Dress has some incorrect information. I tried to correct it with the right info but it was deleted by AkaiKaze on the 11th of June 2016. My information was based on the older and RARE 1987 PC catalog and the actual dress, not here say.

Just in case AkaiKaze deletes this or I get banned from the site for my opinion. I have already snapped a snapshot of this post on her talk page. If it's deleted, I will be adding this to "my opinion section" on Ebay or my blog, with a link of proof. (that's if my talk message is deleted and/or if I get banned only.)

I'll save you the screencap, because having seen your previous contributions - and your deplorable attitude - you see incapable of behaving yourself on this wiki. I'd expect better decorum from someone who claims to be 13 years or older, seeing that this wiki disallows anonymous editing and requires account registration under Wikia's Terms of Use. (Besides, at some point this will get deleted from my main Talk page and archived, so whether you have screencaps or not is moot.)
You've been banned before and I can see it had no effect. Having seen your childish reactions to my commented reasons as to why I removed your edits (poor writing, lack of documentation supporting your edits since not everyone has ready access to old catalogs), I'm inclined to think you lack the maturity to see I'm criticizing your edits, not you as a person. If you can't Be a Big Kid, absolutely have to be a drama queen and cannot behave yourself, perhaps wiki editing isn't for you.
Consider this temper tantrum a permanent vacation from the wiki. --AkaiKaze (talk) 06:59, June 13, 2016 (UTC)

Hello,

I have found a picture for the Recital Outfit I.

Here is the picture:

Unless you've managed to obtain permission from the store/website you took it from, I will not accept the image as is. --AkaiKaze (talk) 22:04, July 25, 2016 (UTC)

Not the time or place

Thank you for welcoming me! - blossom

I'm engaged in a wikia battle with another user. Any help on how to deal with this?-Blossom

...Is this a joke?
I am not about to involve myself in another user's disputes. Even if this battle/argument/dispute was happening on this wiki, I'd expect you and the other person to behave like adults and sort it out.
If you are legitimately facing abuse from another Wikia user, you might want to consider contacting Wikia Support as this falls well out of my abilities to help you. --AkaiKaze (talk) 00:48, August 8, 2016 (UTC)

Hello, The Stripey Sleeper also be considered as a meet outfit. Take a look at the screenshot below:

The Stripey Sleeper is also a meet outfit.

Rhythmic Gymnastics Outfit

Hi,

The picture for the Rhythmic Gymnastics outfit has just been updated.

Capture

AG just updated the photo for the Rhythmic Gymnastics Outfit. Just Like You #33 is now modelling the outfit.

They updated the photo because the doll modelling it, Just Like You 46, has been retired. So, I brought this to their attention, and so they replaced the photo, with Just Like You 33 modelling it instead.

Here is the updated photo:

Thanks for pointing this out. Since we don't generally change display pictures here simply because dolls have retired, we aren't likely to change this one. Also in the future, please check to make sure other notes aren't deleted in your talks. I had to re-edit in my notes addressing the Stripey Sleeper. 00:46, September 24, 2016 (UTC)

I Think You Might've Not Understood My Edit 100% Clearly

I just wanted to respond to your undoing of my edit where I stated that Ivy was given the Jess mold instead of the Asian mold, even though the Asian mold was made to reflect a person of Chinese background. I looked thouroughly through the wiki and it says that the Asian mold was made to be East Asian "..thinner and tilted eye sockets that are intended to visually direct a doll's ethnicity as East Asian.." Meaning China, Mongolia, South Korea, and Japan. Ivy was given the Jess mold. Jess was made to be Japanese-American, and a face mold is typically made to reflect the race of the doll "However, the faces do generally map to the general likenesses of perceived racial groups." Because the Asian mold was made for a JLY the race can be more flexible, so it can be classified as Chinese, which Ivy is. I never stated that the Asian mold was made specifically to cover China.

Sm0lDolls (talk) 02:19, October 22, 2016 (UTC)

You seem to have missed the part where the trivia that you added is useless. The Jess mold is clearly used by American Girl as ambiguously East Asian, just like the Sonali Mold is ambiguously Black/South Asian. It makes no sense to quantify each of the or point out that Ivy;s face mold was first used on a character that was of Japanese background.
Furthermore--though you deleted the evidence--it has been confirmed that you are under the age of 13, as you were banned from AGC for this. Until such a time as you are 13 you will not be allowed to edit or contribute here, and since we no longer have access to your birthday, you're banned to 2018 cause that's the earliest you can be 13. Hasta la treize. Nethilia (talk) 23:02, October 23, 2016 (UTC)
For the White-bodied doll article can you please make sure that instead of it being created by americangirl to be created by pleasant company because as you know 1n 1986 it was pleasant company for the americangirl's collection Rainbow12345678 (talk) 15:33, November 4, 2016 (UTC) thank you

For the article White-Bodied dolls isnt it that white bodied dolls where first produced by pleasant company and not americangirl Rainbow12345678 (talk) 18:49, November 7, 2016 (UTC)

From the research I've done through archive.org, Pleasant T. Rowland has been credited as the founder of Pleasant Company and the creator of the American Girl brand. The use of the name, "American Girl", in this case, can be correctly applied to the White-Bodied Doll article since the brand name predates Mattel's purchase of Pleasant Company in 1998. The article stands as it is. --AkaiKaze (talk) 22:40, November 8, 2016 (UTC)

Front Page Hot Topic Characters

So I think that Gabby should at least get her image on the main page and as the hot topic til at least end of March--every other GotY got at least that if not til summer. We can figure out how to do a slideshow later--there's a way to code one in on a Wiki--and at that time we'll worry about Tenney, Logan, Z, and Felicity. Nethilia (talk) 05:17, February 16, 2017 (UTC)

This sounds like a good compromise, considering AG generally doesn't spam this many characters all at once, WellieWishers aside. --AkaiKaze (talk) 05:31, February 16, 2017 (UTC)
The Slider Code was easier than I thought. I went ahead and coded it up for Gabby, Nanea, Z, and then the six-group promo. They can only have 4 images, so I put the DoC front and center. Nethilia (talk) 13:55, February 16, 2017 (UTC)

Z's Minor Characters

There are now two pages for Z's minor characters:

http://americangirl.wikia.com/wiki/Minor_Characters_in_Z%27s_Stories

http://americangirl.wikia.com/wiki/Minor_Characters_in_Z%27s_Series

Which page should get the boot? Nipasu (talk) 04:12, April 28, 2017 (UTC)

Since Z is confirmed to have a movie, I will redirect the Series page to the Stories one. --AkaiKaze (talk) 04:29, April 28, 2017 (UTC)

A couple of questions

First question, should I turn off Grammarly? Second, can you add a blog? I'd love to share my fanmade dolls.

Hi! Hollyleaf's #1 fan here! (talk) 10:05, December 31, 2017 (UTC)

Firstly, I have no idea what that is and don't have it on. I don't know if AkaiKaze does.
Second, the blog option was disabled in 2009 and is not going to be used here on the AG Wiki. Blogging about personal dolls and collections using Wikia space is of no benefit to the project; this wiki is not about anyone's collections or personal characters. If you would like to have a blog about anything fan-related, please use places like Wordpress, Blogger, or any other personal blog space.
Nethilia (talk) 10:24, December 31, 2017 (UTC)
Whether you should use/not use Grammarly is your choice. I had to look it up since this was the first time I've heard of it.
And as Nethilia said, blogs have been disabled and there are no plans to re-enable them here on Wikia. --AkaiKaze (talk) 17:23, December 31, 2017 (UTC)
Well, other wikis have it (e.g. Just Dance Wiki, Elsagate Wiki) but I get what you mean.
Hi! Hollyleaf's #1 fan here! (talk) 17:51, December 31, 2017 (UTC)

I renamed josefina’s nephews’ pages to just their first names, Is that ok?

Tomas’ surname is never revealed and Ana would have gotten Tomas’ surname when she married so therefore their last names are unknown. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Ianthe B, (talkcontribs)

Per the site's rules as seen here, renaming without admin rights is not allowed. The pages have been restored and the user has been blocked for two weeks. Nethilia (talk) 23:37, March 25, 2018 (UTC)

Introducing the Editor Rewards program

Hey AkaiKaze, in case you haven't read the Community Central blog from earlier this week, Fandom officially announced the Editor Rewards program. Fandom has been looking for ways to give back to users for the work they've done. Recently they have done things such as buy movie tickets, or offer products from their favorite fandoms. Stay tuned as perhaps you, your co-admins, or other contributors for this wiki may even be eligible!

If you have any questions, feel free to comment on the blog so the Editor Experience team can answer directly. TimeShade (Talk) 06:22, September 1, 2019 (UTC)
