Welcome to the Cartoon Network / Adult Swim Archives! Thank you for your interest in contributing to this project and helping to build a bigger and better guide to all things Cartoon Network and Adult Swim! Here are a list of questions you may have (and their answers). If you still have questions before you start contributing, please contact a staff member on their talk page or reach out to us on our Discord!

General

Q: What is "Newspapers"? I keep seeing it on schedule pages.
A: Newspapers is short for newspapers.com, an internet archive of newspapers. Any paper name followed up by "via Newspapers" means it was sourced from that site.

Q: What is a screenbug? I don't see any bug!
A: A screenbug is the little Cartoon Network / Adult Swim logo in the corner of the screen (usually the lower right). Screenbugs are actually one of the main ways we're able to figure out the dates some of our old tapes were recorded, so they're extremely important!

Q: Will you cover any of Cartoon Network's sister networks or the international Cartoon Network channels?
A: Currently, no. Archiving 25+ years of broadcast history is already an extremely huge undertaking as it is.

Q: Can "internal documentation" be used?
A: Yes, although unlike Nickstory, internal documentation is encouraged to be shared to prove its authenticity (though not enforced). Please contact an administrator about the internal source if you need to use this.

Q: What if CN had aired a certain show but their episodes are not in production order?
A: CN/AS Archives encourages shows' individual episodes that are aired out of production order to be also given a picture of its own. The wiki strives to ensure authenticity to how a certain program aired on a certain day.

Q: I have old recorded VHS tapes/DVDs/etc. of Cartoon Network / Adult Swim! What can I do?
A: Wonderful! If you have old recordings of Cartoon Network, please reach out to us! We're always interested in helping people date their old recordings and adding new information to the wiki.
