  • Why are there so many gaps in the 2019 News blogs?

      Loading editor
    • I just haven't had time to fill them in, and I'm assuming the others haven't had time for that either.

      We usually get behind on the blogs around the time ToonFest (in real life) begins. They like to post lots of pictures per blog then.

      We also get behind during the TTR's 12 Days of Winter. And at a certain point, it becomes more convenient to complete 100% of the new year blog posts in January, rather than complete 12 months of blog posts from the prior year.

        Loading editor
    • They certainly haven't. I have lots of extra time on my hands, so I'm certain I can fill in the missing blogs. That's one of the reasons I wish to become an administrator.

      Oh, and I happen to be administrator on several wikis, one of which is the Disney Wiki.

    • Well it's too bad I can't just change the News Blogs (2019) page to allow edits from the Moderator user rights you already have. Thank you for the good edits you've made elsewhere though!

      If you want to help out with blogs without an Administator role, there's two ways we could go about this. You could upload images/files that would be used in a blog post. Or you could post the wikitext here in this thread for someone else to put on a blog post page.


      (1) There's a specific blog post I've had my eye on but haven't had time to upload the pictures for. Haven't even come up with what naming conventions I'd use for the files.

      https://toontownrewritten.com/news/item/567/crash-cashbot-creations--community-spotlight

      One of those pictures used to be private, but it looks like it's public again. :)

      If you upload those pictures (or at least one of them), I can at least stick it in a gallery on the page.


      (2) The second approach is if you gave me wikitext for the blog post between the <pre></pre> tags.

      I may have to fact-check what you give me, so please don't send more than three blogs at a time. I don't wanna leave ya hanging and if you gave a huge amount, like 15 blog posts, I'd feel really guilty for not completing them. :P

      I've been busy recently, but I should have a little more time on my hands this week. If you give me the wikitext, I'm sure I can put a few blogs up on the page and give you credit via the edit summaries.

      What you'd give me would look something like this.

      :Hello there, Toons. You might find it odd to see us out and about today, but it is the Ides of March, after all. It seems that the {{Plainlink|https://www.toontownrewritten.com/news/item/543/doubling-down-on-silliness Double Talkers of last week}} did not get the ''point'' across quite as well as we'd anticipated. Feh, you even allowed for that ''piercing'' Silly Meter to reach {{Plainlink|https://www.toontownrewritten.com/news/item/546/the-silly-meter-has-reached-the-top its maxing point}}! Don't you know that the Silly Levels are ''spiking'' to the highest levels seen?
      
      [[File:19-3-15_theythinktheyrefoolingusall.jpg|thumb|center|500px|Back Stabbers invading the streets.]]
      
      :To that, I warn you of Loony Labs' true intentions: to ''backstab'' all of you while you aren't looking. I could never think of doing such a horrible thing. But look at those downright batty Scientists. We cannot stand for such ''sharp'' tactics. To further assist in taking down these "friends" at Loony Labs, '''us Backstabbers are paying Toontown a visit with yet another Mega-Invasion.'''
      
      :Come now, why wouldn't you trust us? We're just here to ensure that Toontown remains as ''sharp'' as a tack. We'd never pull the wool over your eyes, honest. Don't make the same mistake you made with those Double Talkers, simply let us do our work and Toontown will be back to the way it once was.

      :Top of the mornin’ to ya, laddies! Have ya heard the news? ''What news!?'' Are ya tellin’ me ya have no idea about the Leprecog? Yes, yes, the Leprecog. A wee little Cog that comes around evr’y Saint Patty’s Day and gobbles up all the beans it can find. Dastardly lil' fellow he is. Leavin’ no beans for the rest of us. I’ve heard that he scurries through our very streets, ready to pounce on us helpless Toons and steal our beans! Egads, it gives me the shivers. 
      
      [[File:19-3-17_alwaysstealingmeluckybeans.jpg|thumb|center|500px|Eugene thinking about the evil Leprcog.]]
      
      :Luckily, ya know me - good ol’ Eugene the Irishtoon! My green gloves, dyed with all-natural green jellybeans, will sure make that Leprecog skedaddle. Whaddya mean my gloves aren't green? Oh- blast it! Ye didn't see anything, I tell ya. Anywho, back to the conversation at hand. One pair of green gloves for every Toon should do the trick. Because the Leprecog hates the sight of a bean put through the wringer. Hmm... yes. It dislikes that very much. ''That sounds good. Good Job, Eugene. Smart move.'' Don’t ya go lookin’ this up in the library! I’ve already done all the studying for ya. Lepre...cog...ology is a serious practice. ''Hehe.''
      
      :Oh, where was I? Ah! So stop by me ol' shop, Green Bean Jeans in Daisy Gardens! Don’t let the Lepre... umm... '''what'd I call the thing... come on, use yer noggin’'''... AHA! THE LEPRECOG!
      
      :Ahem. Don’t let the Leprecog ruin your Saint Patty’s Day this year and let me dye your gloves a shiny green hue. ''I need yer business for me shop, after all.'' ''I MEAN...'' I need yer... citrus... for me... cough. Eck Agh Bleh. That's right. '''Grab yerself a pair of shiny green gloves, Toons! Remember, these limited time special gloves'll be available until March 21 at 11:59 PM Toontown Time (PDT)!''' They also conveniently disappear from yer gloves at that time as well. I oughta be increasing the quality of my Green Beans one o' these days, maybe they'd last a wee bit longer. Once the gloves are gone, I suspect my cough'll be clearin' up. ''Hachoo! Ah! Sick noise.'' '''All you gotta do is walk up ta' me and say "It's Easy to be Green!" from yer Handy-Dandy SpeedChat menu.''' Now make like a Leprecog and skedaddle on over here, before I run outta Green Jellybeans!

      :Silliness is on the rise all throughout the Toontown Community -- and so is the blood pressure of our staff members! It can only be one thing… Today, we're formally announcing that '''the ''Fifth Anniversary'' of ToonFest''' will be hosted from <u>August 1-4</u> at the most Toontastic location we've ever visited: ReplayFX 2019 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania!

      :<font face='Bowlby One SC' size=5 color=black>What is it?</font>
      
      :Once again, we’re bringing the boatloads of real world Toontown fun for all ages to a can’t-miss celebration where you can hang out with fellow Toons, meet the The Toontown Team, participate in activities like our annual pie toss, and more! We're kicking things into high gear for our fifth anniversary, and we'll tell you more about that in the coming months leading up to the event.
      
      :Running an event like this for five years running is no small feat, and the only one to thank is YOU! Whether you've attended ToonFest in person or watched online from home: You’re the reason that we spend countless hours making sure that ToonFest becomes bigger and better every year.
      
      :<font face='Bowlby One SC' size=5 color=black>Where is it?</font>
      
      :This year's ToonFest is being hosted for the third year in a row at ReplayFX 2019, which is in the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The event starts on Thursday, August 1st and will end on Sunday, August 4th.
      
      :We know that some Toons may be disappointed that we're returning to Pittsburgh instead of expanding to a different area. Our team spent a long time considering several other places, but at the end of the day, our goal is to pick the location which we know will provide the BEST Toontown event ever. Above all, coming back to ReplayFX allows for us to focus less on logistics and more on ''fun!''
      
      :If you're unable to make it to the event, we have a few tricks up our sleeve that we'll talk about in the future to make sure you can enjoy it from home.

We’re really excited to spend a weekend with Toontown fans from around the world, and like always, we’re here to make this a highlight of your summer vacation!
      
      :Don’t take a breather just yet, though! ReplayFX is a very popular convention, and tickets and hotels may sell out quickly. That’s why the best time to {{Plainlink|https://www.showclix.com/event/replayfx-2019 purchase tickets}} is right now!
      
      :Our behind-the-scenes and announcement blog posts will continue, so keep your eyes glued to the Toontown Blog for more information along as we get ever closer to August 1st. ''There’s only 132 more days to go!''

      The TTR website is down for me right now, so I couldn't fact-check it as much as I wanted to. I did change the alt text (based on some old notes of mine) and fixed the video. When putting videos on the Wiki, Wikia likes to remove the ":" sometimes. :P

      Thanks again for helping out, ZanyDragon.

      Posted by '''The Toontown Team''' on '' June 5, 2018 at 4:40 PM''
      
      :Hi again, Toons! It's time for our third and final Backstage Column of this week -- the most that we have ''ever'' had in a single week. There's a lot of things that we've been working on behind the scenes, and these three posts are only giving you a small glimpse of what's to come.
      
      :Today's post aims to give you a sneak peak of our highly anticipated real-world event, ToonFest at '''{{Plainlink|https://www.toontownrewritten.com/news/convention ToonFest at ReplayFX 2018}}''' -- and in turn, a glimpse of the huge announcements to expect at the event!

      [[File:toonfest2018_players.png|right|500px]]
      :We've hosted a real-world ToonFest event for the past three years, with ToonFest at ReplayFX 2018 being our fourth event. Some players ask us, "Why put so much time into ToonFest? What's so special about it?"
      
      :This is a good question -- after all, ToonFest costs thousands of dollars to put on and takes an incredible amount of work to plan and organize! There's a reason why we've done this every year, however, and anyone who has ever attended ToonFest knows exactly why: ''It keeps Toontown alive in a way that we could never achieve online.''
      
      :There's something really special about getting a bunch of Toontown players all in one place! The sheer amount of excitement, celebration, and downright fun that we have at ToonFest every year energizes the players and staff alike, and catches the attention of people even outside of the Toontown community.
      
      :Think about it: Hundreds of people spend hundreds of dollars to travel and attend an event hosted for a game that was supposed to have closed 5 years ago. That is ''INCREDIBLE!'' We've been emphasizing Toontown's Toontastic community a lot this week, and the success of ToonFest is the single greatest testament to just how great you guys are. 
      
      Not convinced that you should get excited about ToonFest yet? Let us tell you more about what makes this year special!
      
      :<font face='Bowlby One SC' color=black size=5>New Activities and Collectibles</font>
      
      [[File:toonfest2018_mousepad.png|right|500px]]
      :We've been putting a lot of thought into how to make this year's ToonFest a blast ''(or, in some cases, a '''{{Plainlink|https://www.toontownrewritten.com/news/item/481/watch-the-biggest-toontown-pie-toss-ever SPLAT}}'''!)'' In addition to all of the great gaming activities that ReplayFX has, Toontown will have plenty of activities of our own such as Game Stations, Competitions, Arts & Crafts, a Pie Toss, and more!
      
      :A huge part of ToonFest is also meeting other players and the Toontown Team, who are super eager to meet you as well! Rumor has it that two certain ''special guests'' are making a return, too... Can you guess who?
      
      :Of course, one of the coolest parts of ToonFest is all of the free stuff you get to take home with you. In fact, we've got a special sneak peek of one of our collectibles this year in the image on the right! That's right -- everyone who attends ToonFest will get to take home an exclusive Toontown Mousepad, in addition to plenty of other goodies that we're saving as a surprise!

      [[File:toonfest2018_panels.png|right|500px]]
      :ToonFest isn't all about the fun and games -- but we'll admit, that is a ''really'' fun part of it. In addition to the activities at the Toontown Rewritten booth, we host a Main Event every year to announce what we've been working on. Sometimes, like last year's reveal of v2.0.0, this results in brand new gameplay that you can actually play for the first time at ToonFest!
      
      :We're going to let you in on a secret: The content we've shown you this week ''isn't'' the biggest thing we've been working on recently. In fact, '''the biggest project that we've EVER created will be seen for the first time at ToonFest.''' That's a big secret we just told you!
      
      :Until then, our lips are sealed! You'll have to "Toon" into ToonFest to see for yourself.
      
      :<font face='Bowlby One SC' color=black size=5>Bringing the Fun Back Home</font>
      
      :Hopefully by now, you're as excited for ToonFest as we are. We understand, though, that some of you who live too far away from Pittsburgh, PA may be feeling a bit down that you can't join in on the fun. ''That's why we're bringing the fun back home to you!''
      
      :'''This year, we're doing more than ever to get players who can't attend ToonFest involved.''' With more Livestreams, more Social Media coverage, and more activities going on in-game -- you'll feel like you're really there!
      
      :Toontown's community spans all across the world, and we want to celebrate with ALL of you -- not just the ones who can make it in person.

    • There is so much I would like to tell you in secret. But Wikia doesn't seem to have a Direct Message system and it sounds like you don't have a Discord. Message Walls are pretty public, even if I were to run it through a Caesar Cipher.

      Sorry for reopening the Live! Chat and then not having enough time to actually chat with you. I don't think I've been able to guide you as I would have liked. The lack of communication is probably the only reason you aren't an admin right now.

      So here's my workaround.

      I can give you access to the News Blogs (2020) page. Not the 2019 one nor previous ones, just the 2020 page. Just say the word and I'll make it happen (probably within 24 hours of your comment).

      That way, you can help us out by adding those 2020 blog posts and learn the formatting tricks if there's anything about them you don't know yet.

      If things get out of hand (even if it's not your fault), I can change it back to remove your access.

      I haven't had as much time for Toontown stuff as usual, but I think I can fix the Juggling Cubes/Juggling Balls thing today and do some work on those blog posts.

      Thank you for your edits on the Wiki.
