Comic Strip Pages

As of now, the admins on the wiki have decided to create comic strip pages. This idea originally came from the Peanuts wiki, and this thread. The idea both applies to Garfield and U.S. Acres. More information below.

More Information
Pages can only be created by admins, meaning if you want something edited, inform an admin.
The pages are protected, meaning that they can only be edited by admins.

Public Service Announcement regarding Jesus Acosta, Part 2

Since the previous thread was getting...fat (hey, it is Garfield Wiki), I've closed it and made this second part to continue conversation.
To bring things up to speed:
Jesus Acosta has made a libelous page about me, along with other administrators, family members of mine, and someone named Alexander Kearns who is not related to me.  He may think it's a knockout case, but me...
Meanwhile, LasagnaHog has once again impersonated me (unsuccesfully) and seems proud to have no life.  I don't know what his goal is, assuming it's not being a troll (whose motives, I guess, are generally inexplicable).

Public Service Announcement regarding Jesus Acosta

A certain user that many of you know named JesusAcosta, is back and harassing the Garfield Wiki and its contributors. I used to work with Jes on the Curious George wiki, and was unaware of his antics until recently. He created a bootleg Garfield wiki called Garfield the Cat wiki in order to get revenge. http://garfield-the-cat.wikia.com/wiki/Garfield_The_Cat_Wiki He invited me to become an editor, but I declined. When I alerted Low Spark of Lyman about this, Jes called me a snitch and a traitor. I tried to be polite and friendly in his messages to me. I also noticed that he was harassing other Garfield members on their nonexistent profiles on his wiki, since they haven't (and will most likely never will) contributed. Earlier tonight, I noticed that Jes and his "new best friend" LasagnaHog were in the chat, so I joined. I asked what his purpose was and other questions, which only resulted them getting angry. Hog is extremely biased, even admitting to knowing only Jes' half of the story, claiming that's all he needs. The following pictures are screen shots of the majority of the conversation. (Excluded the unnecessary portions.) I swear that I felt like I was in an 80's superhero comic book, with the way the minion kisses their boss's a**. (or friend in this case) After Jes got enraged, he blocked me for a year, calling me a "Benedict Arnold traitor." The pictures are kind of messed up in their formatting on this post, but you should still be able to view them.

So that's the story. I hope this drama will rap up soon. You can view the message walls of both me and Jes for more.

Update:
Not exactly an update, but these are screenshots from his facebook wall. I accidentally made the pictures in the wrong order and the gallery is still messed up, but again, it should still be understandable.

Alert About a Certain User

After getting visited by "Anonymous79", who definitely appears to be Jesusacosta3050 in disguise, I would like to warn everyone here to be on the lookout for any new accounts here that seem to be him.
Given his recent rampage against us on Facebook over alleged crimes from us (as well as his fantasizing about suing Fandom and Facebook, and taking over this wiki afterward), I can see him trying desperately to return here by evading his ban (which is not ethical, especially in his case).  I didn't suspect Anonymous79 to be him, but after the evidence added up, I think I did the right thing by perma-blocking the account.
As I said before, I no longer wish to converse with him (especially after that libel he posted about me on Facebook yesterday).  I don't suppose most, if not everyone, here familiar with him want to do so either.  So if you eventually recognize a "new user" as him, feel free to take report him (or block him, if you're an admin), and you may stop talking to him, especially if you don't feel comfortable doing so.  And try not to feel sympathetic for him.  At this point, he seems to be beyond help, given his numerous problems that I've talked about before.

For Admins: Deletion policy

I have considered the following for pages being considered for deletion.
If a page clearly should be deleted, such as in cases of blatant vandalism, then it can be deleted upon notice, with no need to ask about it.
If it is less clear as to whether or not it should be deleted, then make it a candidate for deletion so that other admins- as well as other users- can provide a consensus on what to do with the page in question.
Admins, what do you think of this proposal?

"X does not appear in this episode"?

I'd like to bring up the (supposed) need for trivia items dealing with the absence of a character- "X does not appear in this episode".
When, if ever, do we need such information in an article?  The only way I can see it is for someone who appears in the vast majority of the subject in question, thus minimizing the need for it.  With Garfield and Friends, for example, that would definitely be used for Garfield (I don't think there were any non-U.S. Acres moments where he was absent, but still...). Maybe Jon and Odie, I don't know how much percentage-wise they appeared throughout the show.  Then for U.S. Acres, probably just Orson (same as Garfield), Roy and Wade.
Of course, we may not even need to say that any character doesn't appear in an episode, since the character list will say everything about whether or not a character has anything to do with the episode. The trivia could be used for technical appearances, such as appearing exclusively in the title card, but even then it would not require mention of Sir Not-Appearing-in-This-Production.
I'd like to know what others think about this.

What episode is this quickie from

I’m guessing it’s from an episode from around 1992 or 1993, but I don’t remember. I know the original strip was from 1989. Here it is.

About some recent developments suddenly showing up

I've noticed a few fairly new developments going on with the episode pages (I'm assuming these are experiments, considering the lack of announcement about them).  First, for the character list, there are now images for most, if not all, characters.  Second, there are also images for the goofs section, despite there already being a page for that.
I'd like to know what everyone else thinks about all this.
