What's our site's category?

Because I want to try requesting the CB Wiki, and I need to know what our category is. --DisneyInternationalFan (talk) 04:19, 6 May 2020 (UTC)

not sure. I think @MatthewLMayfield: would be the one to ask, since he registered this site. Hb1290 (talk) 04:25, 6 May 2020 (UTC)
OK. --DisneyInternationalFan (talk) 04:28, 6 May 2020 (UTC)

Phone warning

Since we have warnings on loud logos, NSFW logos and seizure-inducing logos, do you think a warning on phone numbers should exist? --DisneyInternationalFan (talk) 09:11, 7 May 2020 (UTC)

Done. How does this look? Hb1290 (talk) 01:05, 10 May 2020 (UTC)
Nice! --DisneyInternationalFan (talk) 03:31, 10 May 2020 (UTC)

I have a new question.

Should I write the translations of warning screens on the same lines as them or below? --DisneyInternationalFan (talk) 18:22, 10 May 2020 (UTC)

I'd suggest a new section below the warning description, like this:

Translation: blahblasblah

Hb1290 (talk) 00:09, 11 May 2020 (UTC)

OK, thanks! --DisneyInternationalFan (talk) 03:25, 11 May 2020 (UTC)

Hello, Hb1290

I'm sorry I vandalized the Technology Section. I didn't want to do that again. Bobbyjennings (talk) 10:21, 16 May 2020 (UTC)

It's not that you vandalised anything. I get what you were doing, but if we do that, we're just going to add them all back later anyway. If we leave them, the links will start working as we add the pages. Hb1290 (talk) 11:27, 16 May 2020 (UTC)
Okay, okay! I do not want nagging administrators on this wiki. I'm not a part of CLG Wiki anymore. I'm retiring due to personal issues, but in the meantime, I'm creating my own wiki on Fandom. Bobbyjennings (talk) 21:00, 16 May 2020 (UTC)

Suspicious behavior on Company Bumpers.

I noticed that at Company Bumpers, ThePBSArchive2020 is acting very suspicious. He deleted the content of two pages with "Why do erasing", and wrote "WHY THE HELL THE ERASE PAGE" on the latter page. Then, he posted this on the forums:

"I'm gonna block you So goodbye and farewell ThePBSArchive2020."

Maybe this doesn't merit a ban, but... --DisneyInternationalFan (talk) 03:27, 27 May 2020 (UTC)

Blocked. I also deleted that weird George W Bush page they made. Hb1290 (talk) 03:31, 27 May 2020 (UTC)

I'm sorry if this sounds forceful...

..but that ICUMANDSQUIRTFORCLG is proving to be a menace on Wikifoundry's Company Bumpers, so could you help transfer content and/or notify members of the site like IlCattivo25 and Buzzfan120 to do the same? Plus if you know their IP address, can you ban them? --DisneyInternationalFan (talk) 08:09, 28 May 2020 (UTC)

Can't really ban them since I have no admin rights there. The site's not active anyway so no real use worrying Hb1290 (talk) 11:13, 28 May 2020 (UTC)
I actually meant the new Miraheze domain... --DisneyInternationalFan (talk) 11:42, 28 May 2020 (UTC)
He hasn't made it there yet, but I'll keep an eye out. Hb1290 (talk) 11:46, 28 May 2020 (UTC)
OK! --DisneyInternationalFan (talk) 12:30, 28 May 2020 (UTC)


Do you think we should make navigation boxes for other companies as well as PBS? The Walt Disney Company, Sony Corporation and WarnerMedia could be good places to start. --DisneyInternationalFan (talk) 12:46, 15 July 2020 (UTC)

That was always the plan. I just never got to making more. Hb1290 (talk) 12:50, 15 July 2020 (UTC)
OK then (actually I kinda expected that it was the plan)! Where should we start? --DisneyInternationalFan (talk) 13:00, 15 July 2020 (UTC)
Like you said, the big ones are a good place to start. I'm thinking we use the navbox with collapsible groups (we do have the template imported, it just needs some CSS styling) and have a group each for TV, film, Home Entertainment, etc. logos under the company. Hb1290 (talk) 13:07, 15 July 2020 (UTC)
Perfect idea, I hope we can go for it soon! --DisneyInternationalFan (talk) 13:10, 15 July 2020 (UTC)

Another thing

Is it possible to increase the item/list amount of the navigation boxes? --DisneyInternationalFan (talk) 18:13, 15 July 2020 (UTC)

I don’t think so. Hb1290 (talk) 00:45, 16 July 2020 (UTC)

A Thank You Note

Hi Hb1290, this is LogoFun13-YT. When I asked about a template for missing images, Logohub presented me with a template made by you. So, I want to thank you for creating the NeedsImages template. We can now use this template on pages that do not contain images and/or videos. And it's all thanks to you. So, thank you. For helping the wiki grow. --LogoFun13-YT (talk) 16:56, 14 August 2020 (UTC)

Thanks you! Always glad to help. Hb1290 (talk) 04:44, 15 August 2020 (UTC)


I think the settings of this and Company Bumpers should be consistent, so could you move the better settings of this site to CB and vice versa? --DisneyInternationalFan (talk) 06:26, 15 August 2020 (UTC)

Sorting out PBSArchive's pages

I think we should do something with the pages PBSArchive or any of his socks have made (both here and on CB), they're often so grammatically broken that I'm having difficulty reformatting them into proper grammar. --DisneyInternationalFan (talk) 04:08, 20 August 2020 (UTC)

It seems that the first step should be to go through and find out how many of his pages are real companies and how many are fake. I suspect there will be some that slipped under the radar, like the Imagine Television redirect I just deleted. Hb1290 (talk) 04:22, 20 August 2020 (UTC)
Sounds reasonable. --DisneyInternationalFan (talk) 04:23, 20 August 2020 (UTC)
Sorry for barging in, but I think it'd be hard since they created a lot of pages. In the meantime, I made this template, it's similar to the one in Wikipedia, I think their pages could be tagged with this for later cleanup. Logohub (talk) 06:25, 20 August 2020 (UTC)
Don't fret! --DisneyInternationalFan (talk) 06:27, 20 August 2020 (UTC)
@Logohub: I just tweaked your template to add a parameter for any additional notes such as particular cleanup tasks needed. Hb1290 (talk) 06:46, 20 August 2020 (UTC)

T.A.T. Communications Company

Did you not see me working on my edits?? PackMasterFlash (talk) 23:38, 31 August 2020 (UTC)

Sorry! Did I cause an edit conflict? Hb1290 (talk) 23:40, 31 August 2020 (UTC)
@PackMasterFlash: For future reference, we did make a template for if you're mass-editing one page and you don't want edit conflicts. Template:UnderConstruction Hb1290 (talk) 23:44, 31 August 2020 (UTC)
Uh, yes you DID cause an edit conflict. PackMasterFlash (talk) 23:50, 31 August 2020 (UTC)

ABC Australia ID Captures from 1988-1995

i couldn't help but notice you're uploading some ABC Australia ID Captures that I originally captured, i have no problem with it, but, i am re-uploading the ones I captured as they have better quality now, as some of the pictures were in real bad quality...(well the ID's were), so that's why i'm re-uploading them, (e.g. a new version of the Swing ID)

Iheartparamount (talk) 09:25, 5 September 2020 (UTC) Jazz (Iheartparamount)

That's fine. If you just upload them with the same filename I used, it will seamlessly replace my original upload. Hb1290 (talk) 10:23, 5 September 2020 (UTC)

Well, i have different file names for them, and for a good reason as they include an unofficial title for the ID (e.g. Wattle, Seashells, etc.) sorry, i didn't know you were planning to upload them too :( Iheartparamount (talk) 10:30, 5 September 2020 (UTC) Jazz (Iheartparamount)

OK, I'll make my uploads redirect to yours. Hb1290 (talk) 10:32, 5 September 2020 (UTC)

Okay, hopefully it doesn't change the picture or anything like that...(I'm sure it wouldn't, but still, what's a redirect in this case?) Iheartparamount (talk) 10:36, 5 September 2020 (UTC) Jazz (Iheartparamount)

If I put in a redirect from my image to yours, any links to my image, i.e, when it's added to a page, will be diverted to your image. Same with pages. You do it with this markup: #REDIRECT [[Pagenamehere]], though with images it has to be "File:yourpagejhere"Hb1290 (talk) 10:41, 5 September 2020 (UTC)

I'm also still in the process adding more, (even the ones you've um, already done, but like I said before, they are in better quality and improved) Iheartparamount (talk) 10:42, 5 September 2020 (UTC) jazz (Iheartparamount)

Actually, I thought of a better idea. If you do what I originally said and upload those under my original file names, then move the files to the titles you want (That's under "more" at the top of the page if you didn't already know), that way we don't have two of everything. Hb1290 (talk) 10:45, 5 September 2020 (UTC)

Well, Okay, I'll do that, and thanks for the tip ;) Iheartparamount (talk) 10:48, 5 September 2020 (UTC) Jazz (Iheartparamount)

It's a page move though with title that okay? and all of my captures are PNG's, and some of yours are JPG's which may be a bit problematic when uploading under your original file names Iheartparamount (talk) 10:52, 5 September 2020 (UTC) Jazz (Iheartparamount)

Oh 'eck the ABC19905 file suffered an error whilst moving, won't let me re-upload it, i think that one may need to be deleted...but i can't delete it :( had to re-upload under a different name and not under your original (known as ABC Australia Cattle ID now) Iheartparamount (talk) 11:34, 5 September 2020 (UTC) Jazz (Iheartparamount)

NBD, the ones that are jpegs we can just replace on the page with your PNGs and I'll delete the old ones after. If you can just put here a list of the ones I need to replace and which ones I'm adding in their place I'll happily do that while this next big batch of images uploads. Hb1290 (talk) 11:51, 5 September 2020 (UTC)

could you please delete this? (apparently something went horribly wrong, when i tried to move the page :( and i couldn't re-upload it it it's apaprenlty a duplicate :O) i've replaced it with this one - Iheartparamount (talk) 11:56, 5 September 2020 (UTC) Jazz (Iheartparamount)

I can always replace them on the ABC National ID's (Australia) page, because once I've uploaded them, then i know what to replace ;) Iheartparamount (talk) 12:06, 5 September 2020 (UTC) Jazz (Iheartparamount) you can delete this one now, as the Cattle Truck ID file is back now (I am also in the process of re-adding the 1988-1995 ID's on the page again) Iheartparamount (talk) 01:20, 7 September 2020 (UTC) Jazz (Iheartparamount)

Just be warned, depending on when you started, you may have an edit conflict since I was just editing that page myself, adding images and videos for the rest of the IDs from 2003-2018 and filling in some descriptions. Hb1290 (talk) 02:13, 7 September 2020 (UTC)

Please disregard my message

Earlier today, I sent you a message talking about an issue I was having with an edit I made. I got the issue figured out. Ryan Holman (talk) 00:40, 11 September 2020 (UTC) Ryan (Ryan Holman)

Fake Logo Report

A user has uploaded a fake logo. I have added the delete template with that. Link: --LogoFun13-YT (talk) 16:10, 15 October 2020 (UTC)

CB Forum

The Company Bumpers forum has an error that doesn't let any user make a new thread. Can you fix it because I want to make a question there? Sorry if this inconveniences you. --DisneyInternationalFan (talk) 08:25, 16 November 2020 (UTC)

@DisneyInternationalFan: Just tried it with a test account and I'm not sure what's going on there. It's just on there isn't it, I've seen you on the forums here today. Hb1290 (talk) 09:53, 16 November 2020 (UTC)
@Hb1290: I know that, but it's still a weird issue. --DisneyInternationalFan (talk) 10:11, 16 November 2020 (UTC)
@Hb1290: However, I'm thinking of asking the question in a new topic of this page instead. Is it fine by you? --DisneyInternationalFan (talk) 10:39, 16 November 2020 (UTC)
just put it under here if you want. Hb1290 (talk) 11:35, 16 November 2020 (UTC)

Question for CB

How do you think I should categorize foreign variants of bumpers? If an "X Bumpers" category is represented by another version (e.g. New Zealand/Australia) or part of a region listed (e.g. Latin America automatically means putting in all the "(Latin American country) Bumpers" categories), I'll mark it as such. Here I'm listing them in alphabetical order.

  • Albanian Bumpers
  • American Bumpers
  • Argentine Bumpers
  • Australian Bumpers
  • Austrian Bumpers
  • Bangladeshi Bumpers
  • Belgian Bumpers
  • Brazilian Bumpers
  • British Bumpers
  • Bulgarian Bumpers
  • Canadian Bumpers
  • Chilean Bumpers
  • Chinese Bumpers
  • Colombian Bumpers
  • Croatian Bumpers
  • Czech Bumpers
  • Danish Bumpers
  • Dutch Bumpers
  • Egyptian Bumpers
  • Emirati Bumpers
  • Estonian Bumpers
  • Filipino Bumpers
  • Finnish Bumpers
  • French Bumpers
  • German Bumpers
  • Greek Bumpers
  • Hong Kong Bumpers
  • Hungarian Bumpers
  • Icelandic Bumpers
  • Indian Bumpers
  • Indonesian Bumpers
  • Irish Bumpers
  • Israeli Bumpers
  • Italian Bumpers
  • Japanese Bumpers
  • Kazakh Bumpers
  • Latvian Bumpers
  • Lithuanian Bumpers
  • Luxembourgish Bumpers
  • Malaysian Bumpers
  • Mexican Bumpers
  • New Zealand Bumpers
  • North Macedonian Bumpers
  • Norwegian Bumpers
  • Peruvian Bumpers
  • Polish Bumpers
  • Portuguese Bumpers
  • Romanian Bumpers
  • Russian Bumpers
  • Saudi Arabian Bumpers
  • Serbian Bumpers
  • Singaporean Bumpers
  • Slovak Bumpers
  • Slovene Bumpers
  • South African Bumpers
  • South Korean Bumpers
  • Spanish Bumpers
  • Swedish Bumpers
  • Swiss Bumpers
  • Taiwanese Bumpers
  • Thai Bumpers
  • Turkish Bumpers
  • Ukrainian Bumpers
  • Venezuelan Bumpers
  • Vietnamese Bumpers

Obviously American and Canadian are first, then we should be putting British and Australian (maybe also Japanese) next, but otherwise, how should it go? Apologies in advance if it's too long for you... --DisneyInternationalFan (talk) 12:01, 16 November 2020 (UTC)

If it's like "Australia/New Zealand", just put it in both. Maybe add a category for "Latin American Bumpers" and make all the relevent countries subcategories of that and keep any generic ones to the broader category. Hb1290 (talk) 12:06, 16 November 2020 (UTC)
@Hb1290: Actually, I meant "in what order?" It probably starts like "USA/Canada, UK, Australia" (the order should include every single potential category above excluding the "L.A." one)... --DisneyInternationalFan (talk) 12:27, 16 November 2020 (UTC)
Go alphabetical. It looks better and its easier to find stuff. Hb1290 (talk) 12:29, 16 November 2020 (UTC)
@Hb 1290: I came up with one that's closer to our current order structure (United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, Japan, Brazil, Germany, Argentina, Spain, Mexico, France, Italy, Netherlands, Chile, Colombia, Belgium, Portugal, Switzerland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Austria, Finland, South Korea, Venezuela, Poland, Russia, Czech Republic, United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Hong Kong, Egypt, China PR, Hungary, Turkey, Peru, South Africa, India, Ireland, Israel, New Zealand, Philippines, Taiwan, Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, Romania, Greece, Bulgaria, Croatia, Malaysia, Vietnam, Ukraine, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Iceland, Albania, North Macedonia, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Bangladesh, Kazakhstan). Do you think it's better this way, and if so, what changes do you suggest? --DisneyInternationalFan (talk) 14:13, 16 November 2020 (UTC)
That works too. Hb1290 (talk) 21:01, 16 November 2020 (UTC)

And can you change "New Zealand bumpers" to "Maori bumpers" and do the same thing to the other New Zealand logos? (Theycallmemaxy)

I won't do that since not all things from New Zealand are necessarily Maori. We could add a Maori bumpers section if anything ever crops up in that language, but not right now. Hb1290 (talk) 23:10, 4 December 2020 (UTC)

Okay! (Theycallmemaxy)

A suggestion

Do you think we should add a Welsh logo list? And maybe add a new page to misc? Cause it is a bit empty. (Theycallmemaxy)

A Welsh Logo category under "Logos by Country" could be alright, though IDK how many Welsh companies we have on here, I know we have TWW and HTV, but thats all I know of. As for the Misc section, I've been slowly working on phasing it out precisely because its so empty and most things there would fit under another section. The old Misc. page is now CLG Wiki:Community Portal following a merge with Maintenance Lists and News and the category is slowly being depopulated. Hb1290 (talk) 23:09, 4 December 2020 (UTC)

I've made a page on Jacknjellify and would like for you to put it in Misc. (Theycallmemaxy)

Added Categories. Though I put them in the Online section rather than Miscellaneous. Hb1290 (talk) 09:44, 8 December 2020 (UTC)
