A Few Questions
« on: September 23, 2011, 11:04:18 AM »
Just wondering what qualifies a song to be included on the song list. I noticed that a few songs that seem to be just a few words and notes thrown together 'on the spot' are included, while others like Lady Elaine Someone Loves You and So Much To Do in the World aren't. Also, most songs not written by Fred Rogers are not on the song list but My Hat It Has Three Corners is.
On another note, a few characters are missing from the Character List: Collette, Mr. Strothers, and Helena Ruoti. Maybe someday Trolley could be added to the characters... :)

As the episodes descriptions wrap up here, it might be fun to summarize the books and the records that have a plot.

Thank you so much for all your amazing work Tim!!!!

(PS To Tim - I think the weatherman predicts that a sky-scroll is on it's way in the next couple of weeks...)

Hey Paul...Typically, anything and everything qualifies. Occasionally, there will be a "song" that is something that is obviously made up on the spot that I don't include but for the most part, anything from a MRN episode or any record/tape/CD or anything from the Children's Corner would be included. For ones that are not included, my guess is that I've simply missed them.

For the character pages that you've mentioned, that's exactly what happened. There are actually character pages for those that you mention being left out, but I have forgotten to add links to the character list. I'll fix that this evening sometime.

As for the Trolley having its own character page, I couldn't agree more. I have a running list of things that I'd like to do as soon as I'm through the episodes that I have on hand. Some of the tasks are small while some are much more involved. One that I'd love to add is a Trolley page.

Keep in mind that even though this archive site is almost two years old now, it is still very early in the building process as there are TONS of things that I would love to add given the time to do so. Ultimately, my goal is to have reference pages for anything and everything you can think of -- everything from the Trolley, to the models, to the various Neighborhood locations, to the guests, etc.

I appreciate all of the contributions and suggestions that folks make through this message board and through email. I'm very much looking forward to where this site goes starting in the next week or two when I'm through all of the modern episodes!

As for the sky-scroll, I'm definitely intrigued...

Along those same lines, if there is ever anything that someone notices being omitted and/or feels should be listed differently, I'm always open to suggestions. I try to make the Archive site as accurate as possible but I'm sure I've made mistakes along the way. I don't take offense to people pointing out inconsistencies...in fact, I appreciate it very much!
