Nickstory Jr. Wiki

This page acts as guidelines towards the wiki and will help you follow the basics of creating an article. Failure to follow these will result in warnings and/or bans.

Please make sure you're not creating placeholder pages, they will be deleted without hesitation.

Formatting

This is the basic format of how schedule pages should be. If you're creating a new page, the template should show up under the notifications as "Schedule page". Time-slots and rows should be left empty if there isn't any information present for them.

Please note: If you do not Know when a Show aired during a particular time slot, then Please leave the cells empty. Do NOT assume what may have aired. Otherwise, it will create confusion.

This is How a Schedule Page should always look like:

{{NavboxDate|PREVIOUS DATE HERE|NEXT DATE HERE}}

[[Category:YEAR]]
[[Category:MONTH YEAR]]

Previous/Next Dates

Use the Navigation Box to link the previous and next date for any schedule on the wiki. The first date is the previous date from the page you would be editing, and the 2nd one is for the day after.

For Example, Picture this:

Let's say the day you're adding is "February 5, 1999", then you would enter something like this:

{{NavboxDate|February 4, 1999|February 6, 1999}}

Rowspan

If a show is aired for more than a half hour slot, add a rowspan to the Show, Episode, and Image column when necessary. Please do not re add the title of an show over and over again like this, Especially with shows such as Sesame Street and Hour Long episodes of all Phred Center Shows:

{| class="wikitable"
! Time
! Show
! Episode
! Image
|-
! scope=row | 7:00pm
| Bill Nye the Science Guy
| Bill Nye Super Special (Example)
| 
|-
! scope=row | 7:30pm
| Bill Nye the Science Guy
| Bill Nye Super Special (Example)
| 
|-
! scope=row | 8:00pm
| Blue's Clues
| Snack Time (Example)
| 
|-
! scope=row | 8:30pm
| Blue's Clues
| Colors Everywhere
| 
|}

We Would Rather you Properly do this:

EXAMPLE:

|-
! scope=row | 9:00am
| rowspan=2 | Dora The Explorer 
| rowspan=2 | Dora's Pirate Adventure
| rowspan=2 | [[Image:xxxx-xx-xx 0000am SHOW NAME.png|250px|center]]
|-
! scope=row | 9:30am
|-
! scope=row | 10:00am
|Blues Clue's
|Snack Time
|
|-
! scope=row | 10:30am
| rowspan=2 | Jack's Big Music Show
| King of Swings
|
|-
! scope=row | 11:00am
| The Music Genie 
|
}}

Movies and Specials

If an airing is a Movie or a Special, and thus has no episode listed at all, then use a colspan in the Show and Episode columns. Make sure to center the text, that way looks more nicer.

Something like This:

! scope=row | 6:00pm
| rowspan=6 colspan=2 align=center | Paddington (2015)
| rowspan=6 |
|-
! scope=row | 6:30pm
|-
! scope=row | 7:00pm
|-
! scope=row | 7:30pm
|-
! scope=row | 8:00pm
|-
! scope=row | 8:30pm
|-

Show Titles

Please make sure to properly title and capitalize show names, such as:

PAW Patrol

The Electric Company

Sesame Street Unpaved

3-2-1 Contact

Bill Nye the Science Guy

The Phred on Your Head Show

For shows with segments or better yet multiple episodes, make sure to use forward slashes ( / ) in place of semi-colons. Leave an empty space before and after each slash.

Example:

|-
! scope=row | 1:30pm
| Maisy
| Balloons / Lemonade / Tummyache / Guitar
|
|-
! scope=row | 2:00pm
| Little Bear
| I'll Be You, You'll Be Me / Frog In My Throat / The Puddle Jumper
|
|-
! scope=row | 2:30pm
|Franklin  
|Franklin's Cookie Question/Franklin's Picnic
|

Indicator Templates

Indicator templates are used all across schedules to indicate when a New Episode premieres, a Programing Block (The N, Nickmom) or special events. You can find a list of indicator templates in Help:Special Templates.

For Example:

|-
! scope=row | 7:00pm
|A Walk in Your Shoes
|{{TheHubbub}}
|

! scope=row | 9:00pm
| O'Grady
| {{TheN2002|A Stronger O'Grady}} {{NEW EPISODE!}}
|

Sources

For the Sources template, use bullet points (or * in source editing). Make sure to link a URL of the source if needed. Sources from membership sites such as Newspapers.com, or Usenet should just be noted in brackets.

View the Sourcing information down below to find out what is acceptable and not acceptable to list as a source.

Those who source a person who wants to be Labeled as a Private Source, Please label them as a Private Source. Otherwise, This can cause Extreme Confusion.

Examples:

{{Sources|1=
* St. Cloud Times (via Newspapers.com)
* [https://www.blue's-big-website.com/miffys-guide-on-a-very-good-source.html Example Website Name]
* Tape in [[User:Fandom Username|Display Name]]'s collection or if not on Fandom, just leave their name (You CAN do so in general, Someone (or You) will eventually add their Fandom Username into the page.
}}

Notes & Highlights

If you need to or want to add a special note or highlights, place this code above the Sources template. Use an asterisk ("*") to separate multiple notes and highlights if needed. Use two asterisks (**) to nest multiple layers also.

{{Notes and Highlights|
* 
}}

Something like this, For Example:

{{Notes and Highlights|
* On this day, Noggin premiered a nighttime block called The N, where its pre-teen programming would air from then on. Before, pre-teen shows aired throughout the day. The daytime preschool block was also extended to last 12 hours.

}}

Categories

Make sure to use [[Category:Schedules]], [[Category:YEAR]], and [[Category:MONTH YEAR]] when adding new schedules. Replace MONTH and YEAR with the appropriate month and year of the schedule. Please do not Leave it this way.

Example:

[[Category:Schedules]]
[[Category:2011]]
[[Category:January 2011]]

Times

Make sure times are in Eastern Standard Time (GMT-5 / UTC−05:00), This is the default time zone to avoid any confusion.

When adding schedules from anywhere that list something in PST or CST Time, be sure to check the time zone of the certain source and what they mean, For Example, Some Sources with Valid Information could say Santiago of the Seas premieres New Episodes on 7:00am of let's say Right Now, but another source with Valid Information could say it being 10:00am with the reporter being in EST Time. See the Problem? Correct it to Eastern Time where needed.

Images

Titling images should follow this format: [[Image:YEAR-MM-DD 0000am SHOW NAME.png|250px|center]]

Please use the 24-hour clock (AKA Military Time) for the titling of images only. This gives us better organization and being able to easily locate images. A Episode of Degrasi could air at midnight (12:00am). That would be listed as 0000am, Meanwhile an episode of Franklin at 5:00pm would be listed as 1700pm.

Generally, only ‘’’one image’’’ should be used for each respective show/movie in a schedule page so the guides are easy to read. Images are expected to highlight the screenbug/logo (if there is one) and provide a general representation for the content in question.

Most images should feature a show/movie’s characters and not just be empty background/set shots. Title cards are permissible if a screenbug/logo is present, but should be used sparingly. Although we may be tempted to use “meme frames”, images from multiple airings should capture as many scenes as possible, and not just the “popular” ones. This is especially important if multiple broadcasts of an episode are available with the same screenbug/logo.

Images should be close to their native resolution as best as possible. Cam-rips should only be uploaded if they're the only sources available.

Screenshots should be uploaded using the Fair Use license.

Sourcing

The mission of Nickstory Jr. is to provide an accurate, research intensive resource that anybody interested in Noggin/The N/ and Nick Jr's past programming can rely on. As a result, Nickstory Jr. holds articles to a high standard -- NO content can be added without citing a reliable source.

Acceptable sources include:

  • TV recordings
    • Do NOT link full episodes or any websites which illegally host such content. Nickstory Jr has a very STRICT rule when it comes to Full Episodes and Recordings This includes links to Internet Archive, Google Drive, or Mega that include Full Episodes (Info relating the Channel is fine, as along as it isn't Full episodes).
      • Short video clips from sites like YouTube or Twitter are an exception.
  • Newspaper listings
  • Firsthand accounts (eg, fan sites, forums that tracked past broadcasts)
  • Internal documentation (trustworthy resources used within Nickelodeon and other relevant parties, only certain users are allowed to use this. Please contact an administrator if you have the need to use this)
  • Confirmed episode rotations
    • Most Programs on the channel were generally aired in a random non-chronological order, However, there are Shows who were rotated in a set order. Feel free to use the known episodic rotation as a source, However, staff must be comfortable to the accuracy prior to editing. Check before using the method.

Unacceptable sources include:

  • Memories. Unfortunately even the greatest of memories can get a little bit jumbled up over the years, especially when it concerns broadcasts from several decades ago. Therefore, Nickstory Jr. requires that all schedule additions be sourced from a tangible resource, such as those mentioned above.
  • Recreated images. To ensure Nickstory Jr.'s accuracy, all schedule images must be as aired. The purpose of these images is to show how the exact broadcast looked. While a degree of guesswork and faux recreations may prove accurate, only images from the actual broadcast can truly show how a program or movie was aired.
  • Wikipedia / Fandom / Wikis.
    • An exception to the rule may apply if said site has a valid source cited.

One More thing:It should be noted that while digital releases of Noggin/The N//Nick Jr's shows often have air dates attached to them, Some of them are NOT reliable or accurate. These aren't outright banned as sources but, mentions of a digital platform (Amazon Instant Video, Paramount+, etc.) must be discussed with a staff member prior to their usage. For Example: If Koozboi or Co M were Ok with a Show like South of Nowhere to have accurate airdates on Amazon, but Not Jack's Big Music Show, Then their's a Sigh that there are chances of it being fine, but sometimes not. Same goes to Social Media posts by Nick Jr. or Nickelodeon themselves, While their track record has gotten somewhat better, Please Be Aware of this and Do not go right ahead with Logging a un accurate premiere Date of let's say The Upside Down Show, Speak with a Staff Member about it.
