I know it's a stupid question, but what happened to Profiler10? Did something happen? Is everything okay with him? I know it's too much to ask, but no one has heard from him on this wiki for over two and a half weeks. Have you heard from him?
Hello, Fashionable101. How are you? Recently, I did send Profiler10 a message on his wall, and I have been waiting for him to reply back, but he hasn't. I know that I should have told you this sooner, but I was waiting patiently to see if he will reply back. You don't think something bad happened to him, do you?
I saw your comment about how the trivia I added seemed a bit irrelevant. To give some insight, I added the trivia because I thought it would keep parallel structure when there is something special about who said the bookend or what the bookend quote was about, like in Burn, Family Tree, Profiling 202, or Broken Wing.
I was also going to add to the trivia sections in where the episodes had bookend quotes recited by non-BAU members. Here is a link to it. https://criminalminds.fandom.com/wiki/User:EvilPegasus111/SandboxD. It is in similar format to what you would find on pages like "Doubt", "Derek", or "Twenty Seven", where no one says a bookend quote.
Also, for "And in the End", I rewatched the episode and I was going to add the bookend quote "My favorite band says, 'The love you take is equal to the love you make'". It is said by Garcia during her speech at the end of the episode. I have researched to make sure this quote is legitimate and it is. It is from the Beatles "The End" with the full quote being " And in the end, the love you take, is equal to the love you make...". I just to make sure I have the approval to do so.
Would either of those changes be okay? Or should I ask another site staff?
I don't mind quotes said by non-BAU members, especially voice-overs such as near the end of the episode if there isn't a quote spoken by a BAU member. Preferably, the quote we choose to display is usually said either in the beginning or end of the episode, usually during the jet flying in the sky scene.
Hi Echo and Fashionable! I am back after a brief hiatus due to figuring out parts of life that needed to be figured out.
All the quotes that are said in that sandbox are said in a fashion right after the opening or right before the ending. Well, they should be. Maybe the one said by Krystall was said like 4 minutes after the intro.
I see now that most of the quotes posted on here tend to be voiceovers, but not always. Off the top of my head, I think Demonology, Profiling 202, Coda, Zugzwang, Tabula Rasa (partly), Pleasure Is My Business, and Chameleon are said in conversation style rather than a voiceover during the jet, Quantico, landscape, a driving scene. Now that I say Zugzwang, need to add that to the Sandbox.
So, am I approved to post that sandbox onto the trivia pages and the Non-BAU character pages that relate to that quote? FYI, if that sandbox is approved, can one you update one of the trivia on Everett Lynch's page? It should be updated to the third unsub rather than the second one, as I have made a point on the "Family Tree" comment section that Megan Kane in "Pleasure Is My Business" still said a bookend quote despite no known true author, but that page is locked, presumbly to stop any vandalism. If you guys don't agree with the rationale I provided, that is fine. Also, the last appearance of Grace Lynch needs to be updated to "Face Off" rather than "Awakenings".
Also, is that quote by Garcia approved to be put in the Bookend Quote section for "And in the End"?
And also what would be considered relevant versus irrelevant trivia for the bookend quotes or any trivia in general? Just want to make sure, as I was going to say that boxing has been nicknamed and called "The Sweet Science" and was going to post that on the "The Bittersweet Science" page.
Sorry for the inconvenience to both you, Fashionable, and to you, Echo.
P.S. Don't want to intrude on the merging matter, but I agree with it; seems to have sound rationale behind it.
I had my own brief hiatus right now given something unexpected happened to my family less than 2 weeks ago happened - bear with me, it's been a difficult time in this god damn pandemic.
So regarding the instances where the quote in question is not said by a BAU member - if it's in a voiceover, count it as a typical quote (meaning, it's an official quote that deserves to be included and will be treated as if a BAU member said it).
Now if the quote isn't said in a voiceover, but in a similar fashion like Garcia in her speech in "And in the End", that can be counted as a quote (in this case, count it). I admit this is a rather ambiguous method given any in-depth and thoughtful words can be said by a BAU member at any time at the beginning or end of the episode could be seen as being a quote.
I have looked at your sandbox, rewatched the scenes in question, and determined if the statements you listed can be counted as quotes:
Tabula Rasa - Yes. In fact, include it as an entire quote and sign it as "Mr. Corbett and Spencer Reid"
Pleasure is my Business - No.
Coda, Lauren and 200 - Yes as they are official quotes even if Ian Doyle said it and if the BAU member in question was not actually with the BAU at that moment.
The rest of the quotes on your list are counted as Yes.
Also I will take notes of the updates on the pages you said above and take appropriate actions.
To respond to the seasons not being necessary to list, I was doing it in the same format as what I did for when lead actors who were credited for the episode but actually weren't in the episode, like in Taboo, Future Perfect, or Masterpiece.
If that's not necessary, that is fine, it just means that all the other pages would have to match the same format.
I can see - that actor credit way works becomes it does separate multiple episodes in a neat format. Because there aren't a lot to list for bookend quotes, especially if its an episode per season thing, we can take off seasons.
Ah okay, I just thought adding the seasons would make it a more neater format and so that people who aren't familiar with or couldn't recognize which episode is in which season would be able to know in an instant where along the timeline it was.
Yeah, that's true and I agree. What should the guideline be for when adding seasons should be necessary? I'm thinking of the episodes like Machismo and Spencer where there is trivia listed for when the BAU goes to another country, which only occurred 4 times total, or in episodes that have no bookend quotes, like Doubt and Derek, which also occurred 4 times total.
I don't think there needs to be a strict guideline for adding seasons: it's more of when it feels appropriate and/or when the bullet list might look too complex for a relatively short list. In the case for the actor credit, there was reason to group several episodes from the same season together and it looked more neat in the end.
