I'm just going to tell you before doing so, that I am going to delete the Garfield Older and Wider image and replace it with a higher quality version of it. I would have replaced it, but the file extensions aren't the same.
Well, not deleting the image since you already did that, and the book pages can wait a while. What I meant was numbering the comic strips from 1978 onward in chronological order, only doing the years that are complete, which would be up to 1985. Hopefully, this clears up the confusion!
Okay then, in that case, I'll just number all the comics myself, at least I would if it weren't for the fact that the pages with the comic strips from June 1978 to April 1979 have restrictions on editing!
Well, since you want a purpose for it, it's so that we can keep track of which comic is numbered which. That, and so we can also what number today's comic is. And also, I'm just married to the idea of numbering every Garfield comic strip, and a filing for divorce is inevitable. Hope that answers your questions!
Actually, if you start from the first one, and work your way from there, you'll see the hidden evidence that was there all along. And besides, I believe you even pointed out the 1000th comic strip which was on March 15, 1981. Hopefully, this uncovers the evidence!
Here is the exact reason the pages are protected: Reply #8 onward. Look, don't get angry if your idea gets rejected, and please do not go against our orders. If we understand each other, then I think we should leave it at this.
If PAWS Inc. ever decides to officially give Garfield comics strips their personal numbers, we shall follow that. As long as those comics strips don't have official numbers, we can't use fan-made comics counter system as an official one.

I know what this specific cloudfront is. It's basically the place where all Garfield images that appear on Garfield.com are uploaded. I know because I've opened an image from there before.

I'm afraid it doesn't help because Pastef's list still isn't official, and it doesn't change the fact that it's still unneeded.
(1 - Take the number of strips in June 1978, which is 12. (2 - Take the number of strips in 1978, which is 184. (3 - 12 + 184 = 196 (4 - Calculate how many leap years there have been since '78 (this will matter): 1980, 1984, 1988, 1992, 1996, 2000, 2004, 2008, 2012 & 2016 = Which is 10 leap years. (5 - Next, calculate 2017 - 1979 = 38 (6 - Calculate 38 × 365 = 13 870 (7 - 13 870 + 10 = 13 880 (8 - 13 880 + 196 = 14 076 (9 - Take the number of strips of this year up to September, which is 273. (10 - 14 076 + 273 = 14 349 (11 - Take the number of strips this month, which is currently 16. (12 - Meaning that today's strip number is #14 365.
Adding numbers to 14 365 comics strips would certainly make an enterprise demanding to carry out, even by such company like PAWS Inc. There are two possible ways of handling the issue:
1) either they'd have to number the comics strips within the company (which would take considerable effort, I believe more than a month) - their personnel would have to cease the currently going tasks, which would slow down their production - doesn't sound profitable for a typical company oriented towards profit;
2) or they could hire someone outside their company to do so, which would give them additional expenses. And I personally doubt the core PAWS inc. staff is willing to spend money on such a secondary matter.
Well, I wouldn't say that editing pages with the number system are a waste of time, but I just want you to know that the numbering is only applying to the wikia, and not PAWS themselves. In other words, PAWS just deciding to number all the comics themselves isn't really what I meant. Thanks for understanding.
"FANDOM cannot just push one button to make two communities suddenly become one community. This is because of the technical limitations of MediaWiki software, the unique way FANDOM user tables are configured, and the fact that two communities may have pages with the same name but different content" - Merging Communities
I'm afraid in order to "merge", you'd basically have to delete your wiki (i.e. deleting the main page). Thankfully, it doesn't appear to be that big of a wiki, meaning you wouldn't lose that much information. Happy editing. :)
Alright, I made a mistake, my bad. You actually have to message FANDOM themselves to delete the wiki, which can (or should) take up to a few hours. Again, it is impossible to merge the wiki's. Instead you can add all of the comics to this wiki, which would in retrospect, merge it.
You can go ahead and send a message to Kim Campbell Beasley, the director of Public Relations (you can find her email here). Tell her that the strip for May 27th 2002 is missing, which should make them put it back up.
OK then, so now that we're done with that, can we look into not just numbering every Garfield strip, but also giving them titles? I mean, I know that sounds like a lot of work, but I'd sure love to see it come into fruition! Also, I think the strips should be numbered like this: either #1 or maybe Strip #1? How's that sound? Hope to hear from you soon!
By the way, I just noticed that any category containing the page for Garfield, June 2005 comic strips doesn't show any image at all. I've no clue about what to do about it! Can you sort this out, please? Thanks!
Uh no, but more on that at a later date. Right now though, I wish to discuss numbering the strips. Maybe we could number strips if the strips' year is complete, as in all 12 months (except for 1978 and currently this year) are present and accounted for, or something like that.
