SpongeBob SquarePants

  • I have created a new infobox for a new type of page called "Species". The page will be about the species that appear on the show.

    The Template can be found here: Template:Species.

    Also, I will be adding it to the Anchovies page.

    I will now explain how this works (if you want to give me feedback on this part, you can): (I would suggest checking out the template before reading the following.)

    • Homes: The homes of each character or group of characters will be listed as, for example, Sponge, "124 Conch Street (SpongeBob)" or if the address is not known, Sponge, Grandma SquarePants' House. I will also do ones that have appeared, but are not linked to pages.
    • Types: The different shapes or atrebutes, for example, Sponge, Square and Round, Octopus, 6-legged and 8-legged. I may also create pages for unspecific species like Crustacean and Cepholopod.
    • Genders: The genders of that species that have appeared on SpongeBob SquarePants.
    • Colors: The different colors of that species that have appeared on SpongeBob SquarePants, for example, Sponge, Brown, Yellow, and Green (SpongeBob in the Moldy Sponge/The Abrasive Side (not the episode, but the thing)).
    • Eye Colors: The different eye colors of that species that have appeared on SpongeBob SquarePants.
    • Families, Friends, Pets and Enemies: The known Families, Friends, Pets and Enemies of that species
    • First and last appearances: The first and last (latest, when my proposal passes) appearances of each character of that species.
    • Portrayers: The portrayer of each character in that species.


    I would also suggest looking at the List of Species page to see if I have left anything out.

    • I will consider this after dinner.

        Loading editor
    • I like the template.

    • Sorry for taking so long, I have took a nap after a dinner, but the alarm clock haven't woken me up.

      I have fixed a template errors and you should add paramters description to template documentation.

      I am okay with whole species type and the way you have chosen to go about it.

      Only thing I will change is "List of Species". It shouldn't be capitalized.

      By the way, I have noticed that you have kept "Last appearance".

        Loading editor
    • Also, whole species thing should be added as addition to Characters guidelines, or have their own guidelines.

        Loading editor
    • How has "Last appearance" gone? Will it stay as is? Or change?

        Loading editor
    • I have left last appearances because it is the way this wiki still does it, once my proposal passes, I will change it to latest appearances.

        Loading editor
    • Also, I have realized that, on the species list, I missed slugs and other limbless creatures, as well as sharks. I will add them tomorrow. Also, I am correct on the list's title, that is the correct format for titles, the character list is incorrectly formatted.

        Loading editor
    • No, Species is not name, they are just simple noun and that's the reason why we use don't use capital letter.

      In other words, altough according to the English rules, nouns in title have the capital letter, we count titles as a sentence and therefore we  don't use capital letter.

      If you want this changed, you will have to do a proposal, which I, as a bureaucrat accept to be created.

    • Titles are not sentences.

        Loading editor
    • species is an adjective.

      Titles aren't sentences. Goo Goo Gas. Somewhat of a sentence, but doesn't have a noun verb agreement.

      Therefore a title wouldn't be a sentence.

        Loading editor
    • Species is a noun, not an adjective. Although, I think you mean it is in this case, because it is describing what the list is about.

        Loading editor
    • Yeah, it's describing.

      I just checked, it is a noun when speaking about a certain thing (slugs ), and can be an adj.

        Loading editor
    • I added more species to the list. I feel like I should rename the page because I am afraid that no of them may be actual species. I do not know what to rename it as.

    • I don't know the meaning of half of these words, but here are the suggestions generated via wordhippo.com: division, group, kind, category, class, sort, set, variety, branch, classification, breed.

    • I am using biological taxonomy, which is the classification of life. My main resource is found here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cohort_(biology)#All_ranks

        Loading editor
    • What? That doesn't make sense. Maybe, I should call it "List of Biological Classifications"

        Loading editor
    • This seems quite complicated and somewhat overboard.

        Loading editor
    • We can note what each character is... but to have a complicated classification system included seems out of place for a wiki about an cartoon. This isn't Wikispecies.

      A wiki, especially one that is going to parody "Encyclopedia Britannica" soon, should give as much as information as possible.

      For the first part, there is a dictionary for reason. For the second part, "living class" is dumbing down and making not mean the same thing. I don't like dumbing things down. I think more people need to learn more when they are on a wiki.

      Maybe, I should do "List of Life Classifications", that seems to be a compromise.

      I like classifications. You're right, dumbing it down = not too good.

      Especially cuz of the parody

    • I only made the categories in case we need them. If we do not need them, we can get rid of them, I realized while making them that I should make the rest as needed instead of all in one day.

        Loading editor
    • If we need them, we can use them.

      I don't think we should delete them, just keep them there until they need use.

      However, if we get rid of them, then people won't add worthless categories, for points.

      As much information as possible? That is not what it means. This is a SpongeBob-related encyclopedia, not a biology one.

      Nothing.

      It's a cartoon, not 9th grade Biology.

        Loading editor
    • It is all relevant. I won't go to far off topic. It will all relate to SpongeBob. The paragraphs under the headings in the list are like summaries of the corresponding page.

      Also, people shouldn't just come here to learn about the basics of SpongeBob, they should learn more. This is not just a database of SpongeBob information, it is an encyclopedia, which exist for the user to learn. Would you like to come to a website that just talks the characters, places, episodes, and other media (video games, books, shorts etc.)? If you want to do that, go to any major SpongeBob fan website. Maybe, this is the difference between this website and those websites.

        Loading editor
    • But it's a cartoon.

      Not something major about all the living classes of Biology.

      We should give the information given in the show, and a little more.

      However, I enjoy your excitement to do this.

        Loading editor
    • It might be a cartoon, but most of the characters are based off of real creatures. My list of Species and Classifications are just a small part of the wiki. It's not like I'm going to make the wiki a biology center. I am not forcing anyone to read any of this information.

      All I am doing is adding some science (biology/zoology) to this wiki.

        Loading editor
    • Yes, most of the background are.

      In fact most of the main are (except sandy)

        Loading editor
    • Sandy is based off of a real creature, or at least her species is. (squirrel)

        Loading editor
    • If we are not going to use the categories, they can be removed. We can have pages for individual creatures (an article for snails, an articles for sponges, etc.) We can also discuss behind the scenes stuff that relates to the show (such as mentioning the difference between round and square sponges, the animation process for SpongeBob in the beginning, the use of 6 instead of 8 tenticles for Squidward, an octopus, etc.). But the categories are useless.

        Loading editor
    • The categories are not useless, they correspond with the pages. Just see any of the blue link pages that are on the list of species page.

      I am not going to write about "behind the scenes" stuff. I am going to write about each species/other classification and what characters are that species/other classification.

      I have no idea why you are opposed to this, this seems like this will help the wiki and the users.

    • Why do we need multiple classification categories? All we need is to put each "creature type" in one category. I have been clicking through an overly-complicated tree of categories.

        Loading editor
    • The reason that for example Class is under Phylum is that is how the classification goes.

        Loading editor
    • They are helpful, but some people may not know their meaning.

        Loading editor
    • It's pointless. All we need is one category for those. Categories are supposed to be simple and easy to navigate.

        Loading editor
    • True. True.

      However, each category (major) could have subcategories in themselves.

      But it's you guys decision.

        Loading editor
    • One simple category. In that category is a listing of all articles of each type of creature. WITHIN those articles, we can have the classification system.

        Loading editor
    • Okay, just to make sure I understand whay you are saying, could you please give me an example?

        Loading editor
    • Articles such as Sea Urchins and Jellyfish would go under one category. Not by class or order or whatever. No need for categorization by classification.

        Loading editor
    • Should I just use species or should I use their actual classification?

    • Probably.

    • Seems okay but in the List of Species page. Should we make those pages (wanted pages)? If it could help is it okay if it would be connected to Wikipedia pages?

        Loading editor
    • Since they are real species in a cartoon, the species page doesn't need to be wanted yet.

      Since 120d has made many categories, they shouldn't be wanted… yet.

      I'm not sure if we will derive them from Wikipedia, and Wikimedia.

      Since you can link it up (or link it through pages), it's a prime idea.

      (ie Yeti Krab, and Yeti Krabs have links to the Yeti Crab on Wikipedia.

    • I have decided to change the infobox. I am keeping Types, the image/design, the caption, Colors, first and last appearances, and the portrayers. I am adding phylum, class, order, family, and Genus. Unlike normal classifications, I am not going to use the scientific names, instead I am going to use the official non-scientific name.

      For the parts I am removing, I will just write the information in the pages.

    • I am saying to not use Order, Class, Phylum, Subphylum, etc. Just use one. Put all species articles under ONE CATEGORY.

      That is true. We want to give as much classification.

      Then again, it is a cartoon.

      I know they are not all species, I have tried to avoid using that word. Perhaps a better word is creatures. We do not need a complicated categorization list for classification. The classification will work better on the individual creature articles, but not as categories.

    • So have a category (species), and it has sublinks to the Order, Class, and other such things?

      Since those are actuall species in life, it's not that bad.

    • I have changed the infobox a bit. Instead of listing when every notable of character of a species for the first and latest appearance, it is now going to be the first and latest of the first of that species (example: Sponges is now going to be just Help Wanted for the first appearance and the latest appearance will be Kenny the Cat)
