Welcome

Hi, welcome to Lizzie McGuire Wiki! Thanks for your edit to the Veruca Albano page.

Please leave a message on my talk page if I can help with anything! -- Seating in the dark (Talk) 02:22, January 11, 2010

Hey, can you do something about User: Henry 8? He's posted a ton of photos to the wiki of Hilary. Some of them are okay, but a LOT of them are just...porn. See for instance:

http://lizziemcguire.wikia.com/wiki/File:Earning_the_grade.jpg

He checks in about once a year and adds porn scenes to the Summary for the Lizzie McGuire Movie page. That page has since been cleaned up, but he'll be back.

Can you ban him please? Or at least delete the porn photos? Thanks! Christyleereno (talk) 17:50, March 3, 2018 (UTC)

Quotes & Apostrophes

Hi! I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for popping in and making your recent edits. From what I can tell, your edits are an example to other editors of how making even minor edits can make the text really "pop", which makes a big improvement to the overall page. The only thing I'm a little scared by, though, is the move to curly quotes. When I first saw it, I liked it. I thought it made us a look a little more professional.

But then I started digging. I haven't been able to find anything on wikia about it, but wikipedia instructs people in their style guide to use straight apostrophes and quotes, not the curly variety. You can read it here, along with some of their reasoning in a footnote: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Manual_of_Style#Punctuation

Some sites on wikia (like the Star Trek wikia) outright ban curly quotes. As far as I can tell, the big problem with them is it confuses the Wikia Search feature. So I tried a test. The Tudgeman page on our wikia uses the word "they're" with a curly apostrophe. I searched for the word they're, and it found two pages that use the word, but not the Tudgeman page.

As we grow the site and increase the number of pages (and the information on each page), that Search feature is going to grow increasingly important, and I'm a little scared that populating the pages with curly quotes and apostrophes will kind of break things. What are your thoughts?
