Hi, everyone! So this may not be enough to go on but I'm hoping for some help. I saw this movie somewhere around 2003-2008 (I don't think it was made in that time though. It had three children in it, two boys and a girl possibly around the ages of 10-12. The beginning has left my mind entirely but I remember one particular section. The two boys were somehow in a cemetery wandering around and somehow the girl was taken by these people practicing Egyptian culture and religion and they were trying to wrap her as a mummy and mummify her. Alive. Needless to say the two boys rescued her but that is all I can remember. Any and all help is appreciated!

Please please someone try and help me. Im looking for a show, or possibly a short movie, that I watched in the late 90s. I had the show on VHS tape, and im not sure if it was ever actually on tv. the movie was intended to be relatively scary, but it was for younger kids. it might have been anime style.

The show/movie had a guy in the woods, and at one point the trees were normal and then all of a sudden the trees were like, evil or something. The guy took shelter in some old ladies hut i think.

At one point, there was a pretty castle and town, and there ends up being all of these rich men and women, and there's a dance. The dance is like on some rooftop, but all of a sudden, some of the dancing people are actually monsters...

I have a feeling there was an owl involved at some point.

Also, and this part I remember pretty well, there was a never ending hallway that the guy kept trying to run down, and there was definitely a witch. Im also pretty sure there was a staircase that took the guy and girl to the roof but the staircase disappeared.

Other small details involve three robbers who get trapped in a dungeon.

I realize that this is very little to go on, but i legit am dying to figure out what this was. I will be forever in your debt.

Okay, this is driving me crazy. I have very little to go on other than there was a late 90's show (not sure what channel, possibly SCI-FI, HBO, or some kids channel. I have a vague memory of a guy and girl who go on some sort of adventure and at one point they end up in a cave. I honestly don't even know if this is a full series, a movie, or what have you, but what stands out most in my mind is that there some sort of monster or alien creature that the heroes carry with them (possibly even a companion) whose hair was white and looked very similar to fiber optic strands. I also believe that this alien thing's hair would begin to glow on certain occasions (I think when danger was near.)

for a while now I've tried to remember the name of a show I watched as a kid in the US, in the 90's, I believe on PBS, a live-action, documentary type show that followed these two Australian guys on their adventures around the world (or maybe it as just around Australia...). They had a boat, and a little dog. The show had one of those cheesy voice-overs, and it looked like it was shot in the 70's. I remember one specific episode wherein the dog gets into a fight with a snake...

Anyway, the show was great, but no one I've ever asked knows it and I can't find it on the intrawebz. Anyone?

More people will be able to see this entry if you put it on the main page, which has a discussion-like format. I'm afraid I can't help you identify it, though.

Why do we need to put new stuff at the top of the page, unlike everywhere else on this site?

The person who made that edit says it's the standard for YKTTW entries. But this isn't YKTTW, it's an actual page. And on every other page, new entries go on the bottom (so the new person can read through everything already, and see if their question was asked or answered already). I agree with the question, and want the note changed so new entries are at the bottom as well.

It goes at the top so that they are easily visible. Put them at the top.

Did I say YKTTW? I meant YKTS, as should have been obvious from the context.

And I meant what I said about community consultation, too. Consultation means discussing the question with other people, not arbitrarily doing what you want.

To address the question:

One reason is that if a person has asked a question, they don't want to scroll all the way down to the bottom to find out if it's been answered. If new answers go at the top, people can come back and easily see if their question has been answered recently.

A similar consideration applies to people answering questions — some people visit YKTS regularly, to see if there are new questions they can answer. They don't want to have to scroll all the way down to get to the new stuff, either.

Swish, I don't think I see your point. If somebody's reading through the section to see if their answer has been covered already, they're going to have to read the whole thing from top to bottom anyway; it makes no difference to them what order it's in.

This has nothing to do with me, but I agree that having new entries at the top makes for a tedious experience. Both for checking on your answer and helping others.

Sorry to parrot, I can just imagine lots of people feeling this way.

Hi. :) I can't figure out what I'm supposed to do about a confirmed success. Someone kindly put a name to the TV show I vaguely remembered (and it's definitely right), but how do I move it to another page? I'm confused.

Overall, in fact, I'm confused by this page. I wish there were some way for it NOT to require a lot of scrolling and getting lost. (Oh wait.) And shifting around entries like this is confusing. But at least, can someone tell me how to thank the kind stranger whose two words ended years of torment? ;)

If you like, you can just add a comment after their answer thanking them, and leave it at that; sooner or later, somebody who does know how to move it to the other page will notice that it's been confirmed and move it for you.

No problem. There were about half a dozen others needed to be moved anyway; you didn't create a significant extra amount of work. And at least you asked first.

Why is the timestamp format MM/DD/YY? It's backwards and counter-intuitive... I recommend YYYY-MM-DD.

The likelihood that an item will still be showing on the page long enough for the year to matter is slim. Best course would be to use mo/DD/YYYY (Apr 7,2010) or DD/mo/YY; (7 Apr,2010) those won't be confusing no matter which convention you normally use, since 'mo' and 'DD' are pretty distinct.

Seconding DD-Mo-YYYY.

if DD-Mo-YYYY is more friendly to non-americans, I'm for it as well. It's what I use despite being american- and it's the standard format for genealogy indexing- not that that has anything to do with it at all.

just as long as it doesn't mash up against the numbers from the time stamp.

What is the plan for the Confirmed Success Section? At first I thought it was being archived and cleared to start anew. Now new Confirmations are being deleted along with the folders. I know the confirmed success broke the page with its size, but 3 entries are nowhere near critical mass.

I don't see a definite long term plan written anywhere. Is it in the forums? Are we no longer allowed to confirm suggestions as correct? I'm too afraid to used this page now!

I think that someone made a "confirmed successes" page and has been moving them there. So confirm that a suggestion is correct, and move it to the confirmed successes section same as you used to (adding a note about the date it was confirmed.) They're being moved on an ongoing basis now so that the page doesn't get big enough to break again

Yeah. It's HERE

I'm trying to find an old TV show possibly from the late 90s or early 00s about two kids, a boy and a girl, both psychics. A girl who wasn't in their team was having nightmares about an older couple and a newspaper. In the end it turned out they were her grandparents and their daughter, her mother, had been stolen or adopted.

The team of psychics took her to the street where she'd been in her dreams and she pointed out the right house to them. Her grandma answered.

Go to the main page. See the "Edit" button at the top? Click on that, then add your question, (starting with a single asterisk) at the top of the correct section.

Look at the main You Know That Show page. Look up at the top of the page. See the site logo and two rows of blue buttons? One in the second row says "edit page". That one.

I asked this before on the archived discussion, but never really got an answer. Just what is the Coral Island creepypasta they tell us not to post? I've tried tracking it down, but had no success.

"12/Mar/10 at 08:03 AM by 64.241.37.140" deleted several entries for no purpose I could see. I restored my own but I wasn't sure where the others came from or why they were deleted in the first place.

I'm looking for a show that I remember watching in the 90's. I think they were puppets, and there was a scruffy looking dog and an orange cat that lived in the house, and a colourful bird that lived in the tree in the backyard. In the house they had a closet that was full of junk, but most of it took place in the backyard.

You need to move this to the main page. You won't get much, if any, response here. This is for discussing the page.
