Welcome to the Nickstory Jr. Archives! Thank you for your interest in contributing to this project and helping to build a bigger and better guide to all things Noggin and Nick Jr.! Here are a list of questions you may have (and their answers). If you still have questions before you start contributing, please contact a staff member on their talk page or reach out to us on our Discord!
Q: What is "Newspapers"? I keep seeing it on schedule pages.
A: Newspapers is short for newspapers.com, an internet archive of newspapers. Any paper name followed up by "via Newspapers" means it was sourced from that site.
Q: What is a screenbug? I don't see any bug!
A: A screenbug is the little Noggin/Nick Jr. channel logo in the corner of the screen (usually the lower right). Screenbugs are actually one of the main ways we're able to figure out the dates some of our old tapes were recorded, so they're extremely important!
Q: Will you cover any other Nickelodeon channels or the international Nick Jr. channels?
A: Archiving 20+ years of broadcast history is already an extremely huge undertaking as it is. However, There are other Nickelodeon sister channel Archives to join!
Q: Can "internal documentation" be used?
A: Yes, although unlike Nickstory, internal documentation is encouraged to be shared to prove its authenticity (though not enforced). Please contact an administrator about the internal source if you need to use this.
Q: What if Noggin/Nick Jr. had aired a certain show's episodes out of production order?
A: Noggin/Nick Jr. encourages shows' individual episodes that are aired out of production order to be also given a picture of its own. The wiki strives to ensure authenticity to how a certain program aired on a certain day.
Q: How can I contribute to this wiki?
A: Good question! Here's a basic guide on how you can get started.
Q: I have old recorded VHS tapes/DVDs/etc. of Noggin/Nick Jr.! What can I do?
A: Wonderful! If you have old recordings of Noggin or the Nick Jr. channel, please reach out to us! We're always interested in helping people date their old recordings and adding new information to the wiki.
Q: My VHS recordings have no commercials. Are they still of any use?
A: Yes! One of our specialties is figuring out when recordings were made, whether there are commercials or not!
Q: I want to contribute my old recordings, but I have no way to digitize them. What can I do?
A: No problem! Please reach out to our staff for assistance! We're always happy to help with preserving old broadcast footage.
Q: Do you guys cover the Nick Jr. block since the name is Nickstory Jr.?
A: This wiki only covers the Nick Jr. channel, not the Nick Jr. block as it is a separate block on Nickelodeon, which is covered by the Nickstory Archives wiki. Any schedule pages that are from the block will be deleted immediately.
