Separate page per ep?

I'm thinking we should have a separate page for every episode or this is going to get really long really quick. --Fcphantom 23:43, 26 February 2007 (EST)

I agree. But I thought it was more urgent to at least get the text and the whole concept of 2screen up, since lots of information is being conveyed through it. Rwun 00:12, 27 February 2007 (EST)
What are we gonna do about the twoscreen experience for prior episodes we missed? Is it logged somewhere? --Riddler 00:16, 27 February 2007 (EST)
I don't think it is? But maybe some fan somewhere is logging it. In any case, more of a reason to start now. :\ Rwun 00:18, 27 February 2007 (EST)
Alright, do we want to make pages for all the episodes between Jan 22 and Company Man, in case people have logs or information on them? or can we just leave it as is, and hope people with retroactive info will add pages in? Rwun 00:12, 4 March 2007 (EST)
I think there were some threads with transcripts (screencaps, actually) from earlier episodes on 9thWonders.com, but I'll be darned if I can find them now. In any case, we may as well wait to add pages for the missing episodes until we have something to put on them.--Hardvice (talk) 00:37, 4 March 2007 (EST)
Here's one for The Fix.--Hardvice (talk) 01:21, 4 March 2007 (EST)
Here's one for Distractions.--Hardvice (talk) 01:25, 4 March 2007 (EST)
I PM'd the guy who posted these. He says he also has caps from Unexpected and Company Man. I'll post links when I have them.--Hardvice (talk) 01:04, 6 March 2007 (EST)

Paraphrasing

So...uhhh... why are people adding "praphrased:" to things that were transcribed verbatim? Rwun 00:28, 27 February 2007 (EST)

  • They weren't verbatim, unless I have a better memory than I thought. --Fcphantom 00:37, 27 February 2007 (EST)

They're saying that it's not an exact quote to the Two Screen Experience, meaning we don't have the exact wording... I think. --Riddler 00:31, 27 February 2007 (EST)

Correcting Hana's spelling.

I wasn't following the two-screen, but Hana's mispellings are common... I think whoever transcribed this left the mispellings there on purpose and didn't typo when writing it. --Riddler 00:33, 27 February 2007 (EST)

Eh. I transcribed it, and I wasn't paying attention to any misspellings-- I was focusing on getting the text down. :\ I'll do better next week. Rwun 00:37, 27 February 2007 (EST)

Re-organize?

  • I went through and filled in some of the holes. Is there a better way we can organize this page? Perhaps after we decide if each episode should be a new page.--Parlemer 18:39, 27 February 2007 (EST)


Um, but what is the "Two-Screen Experience"?

I take it that this is another platform/medium of the Heroes franchise. But the article can't assume that a new reader on this wiki will know that. So, before everything else, shouldn't the entry start with a statement/introduction of what the Two-Screen Experience is? --Mercury McKinnon 22:37, 28 February 2007 (EST)

  • Like that? :)--Riddler 22:44, 28 February 2007 (EST)
    • I think that the access note should stay in the top description, for one the link is at the top and if they click it without reading the bottom first they'll be confused. Another, the Heroes two-screen is just that, "Two Screens", so it's less of a note rather than the actual description itself that it's supposed to be done while airing. --Riddler 23:34, 28 February 2007 (EST)

Lead Image

This needs a lead image (and the Heroes360 infobox) so it can be added to the portal. Anybody have any screencaps?--Hardvice (talk) 00:39, 4 March 2007 (EST)

Name Change

Should this be called "Heroes Interactive" also? — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 01:32, 4 March 2007 (EST)

Parasite

I'll be transcribing as much as possible of the 2screen for Parasite. Anyone else? Redundancy is good! Rwun 20:26, 5 March 2007 (EST)

  • I won't be, but thanks for doing it. They seem to have them pretty well posted (with screencaps) on 9thwonders.com -- I'd compare with them. — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 20:42, 5 March 2007 (EST)
  • If you can do screencaps, that will make transcribing things much easier as it will allow you to type it up afterwards at your leisure. The ones I transcribed from screencaps were a snap. Just an idea.--Hardvice (talk) 20:45, 5 March 2007 (EST)

.07%

Did anybody get the HI for .07%? (Did they even do one?) — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 01:29, 26 April 2007 (EDT)

  • I'm not doing ANY of the episodes this time around, since I have meetings on monday nights; someone else want to volunteer for the next three episodes, of there's still HI for them? Rwun 17:34, 3 May 2007 (EDT)
  • So no one's getting this now? I couldn't find recaps of them posted at 9thwonders, but I did find there that you might be able to change the date/time on your computer to be able to grab it. Can anyone who already has an HI account confirm this?--MiamiVolts (talk) 23:51, 6 May 2007 (EDT)
  • I tried that before and it didn't work for me. But it may be that it depends on the computer, so other people should try. :] Rwun 15:03, 7 May 2007 (EDT)
  • So I found out the HI account and 360 account for Hana's blog are the same... so I tried and it just told me the information is only available while the episode airs. Is it okay to just note these articles as blank/incomplete because no one seems to have logged them?--MiamiVolts (talk) 15:34, 7 May 2007 (EDT)
  • Some good news... I read that NBC is confirming to run repeats of Heroes during the summer. The HI's are also supposed to repeat when a show is re-run, so there's a good possibility we could play catch-up then.--MiamiVolts (talk) 03:35, 12 May 2007 (EDT)
    • Reruns are unlikely to begin until after Age of Love, which starts June 25th and runs for at least 8 weeks. So we'll be waiting till at least mid-August before re-runs begin (assuming NBC doesn't changed its mind).--MiamiVolts (talk) 19:16, 11 June 2007 (EDT)

Landslide

So tonight I watched the episode at 9pm EDT, and then changed my timezone and was able to watch the HI for Landslide at midnight edt (9pm PDT). So looks like the timezone changing works, but only if that episode is currently on the air.--MiamiVolts (talk) 02:08, 15 May 2007 (EDT)

Interactive for Collision

Since no interactive originally aired for 'Collision', if one does air on August 13th, I think we should list it as following 'HTSAEM' and include the air dates/times on the Heroes Interactive page. Sound like a good plan?--MiamiVolts (talk) 14:51, 4 August 2007 (EDT)

  • I don't think there will be a HI for it, but if there is, I would list it in episodic order, not in the order that it happened to air. In other words, someone looking for the Heroes Interactive for Collision would look towards the beginning of the list, not after How to Stop an Exploding Man. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 15:09, 4 August 2007 (EDT)
    • Ok, btw, NBC also released the schedule for the week of the August 20th already. However, it doesn't say what episode will be aired, just 'TBA' for the episode name.--MiamiVolts (talk) 15:21, 4 August 2007 (EDT)
      • Yesterday, NBC confirmed that the August 20th rerun will be 'Homecoming'.--MiamiVolts (talk) 10:20, 8 August 2007 (EDT)
        • Doesn't seem like they added a HI for Collision. Is anyone else seeing the Interactive? I'm not... :(--MiamiVolts (talk) 21:42, 13 August 2007 (EDT)
          • Just checked again to see if it was going to air in the West Coast showing. It didn't. Oh well.--MiamiVolts (talk) 00:10, 14 August 2007 (EDT)

Cancelled?

Anyone hear yet as to whether the Heroes Interactive is official cancelled? It didn't air during the Eastern show and I'm thinking it won't air for western either. Also, it's not headlined on their website, so if you don't know about it, you can't find it.--MiamiVolts (talk) 23:56, 24 September 2007 (EDT)

  • When I first tried to login today, it told me my username was no longer valid so I re-registered. But then, it tells me with a pop-up "Illegal input." Can someone else confirm this? It's supposed to be starting now...--MiamiVolts (talk) 00:01, 25 September 2007 (EDT)
    • I'm getting the same thing. I re-registered and when I logged in for the west coast feed I got the illegal input message. I'm hoping it's just a technical glitch on their end which will be fixed by next week. Perhaps it has something to do with the new look to the site? Disney42 00:10, 25 September 2007 (EDT)
      • Thanks for confirming, Disney. I'm going to try and find the e-mail for the webmaster to report the bug. It would be great if you could report too.--MiamiVolts (talk) 00:19, 25 September 2007 (EDT)
        • The e-mail for the webmaster of NBC is: webmaster@nbc.com I'm e-mailing them now.--MiamiVolts (talk) 00:26, 25 September 2007 (EDT)
          • What a tragedy it will be if we lose the Heroes Interactive. How else will I have ads for godawful Marvel movies force-fed to me disguised as trivia?--Hardvice (talk) 00:29, 25 September 2007 (EDT)
            • Ok, I sent in a nice friendly bug-report... Should I have sent in a nasty one instead? It would be a tragedy, imho, if we lose it... I'm not a fan of all the ads either, but I have been hoping they would improve the experience to give us more show-related content and feedback instead of cancelling it altogether. Anyways, as a marketing ploy, it seems to be a good one. If they have cancelled it, it would really be surprising to me.--MiamiVolts (talk) 00:46, 25 September 2007 (EDT)

It's back!

The Heroes Interactive is back! And Peter is going power crazy...wow!--MiamiVolts (talk) 21:31, 1 October 2007 (EDT)

  • Anyone else got the Heroes Interactive besides me, this time? I was only able to grab the last 30 minutes of it. Guess that's better than nothing.--MiamiVolts (talk) 01:23, 2 October 2007 (EDT)
  • Yeah It's Back check out my user page I won the top spot three times in the row--Addude 16:05, 14 November 2007 (EST)

Season 3 Heroes Interactive

Has anyone been able to login? I'm trying both in IE and Firefox and I can't seem to login. 20 minutes until the show airs in the Pacific time zone. If someone else can get in, please log the interactive... I'm getting "Connection error: Please Try again later" when I try to login from http://www.nbc.com/Heroes/2screen/, just a box with the homepage in it when I login as a guest from http://www.nbc.com/Heroes/2screen/intro.shtml, and a fatal exception error when I try to login from the latter page as my username.--MiamiVolts (talk) 23:42, 22 September 2008 (EDT)

  • I still can't login. I hope someone else was able to and is logging. Anyways, if anyone is reading this I'm writing an e-mail to NBC's webmaster now about not being able to get in.--MiamiVolts (talk) 00:16, 23 September 2008 (EDT)
  • So this week we have iSMS messages instead of a website. So I subscribed and we're now about 15 minutes into the show and I've not seen any messages. I'm in EST but I sent for PT (Pacific Time). Is anyone having better luck?--MiamiVolts (talk) 00:14, 30 September 2008 (EDT)
    • The subscription confirmation said I should get approx. 10 messages during the show. I started receiving messages at 25 minutes after the hour... ah, well... at least they're coming. I still like the website better... it was graphical so it was easier to see what the messages were about. Text messages cost money too, which is a big issue for many people including myself.--MiamiVolts (talk) 00:46, 30 September 2008 (EDT)

11/3/08 message

Because of the election, there was no Heroes tonight, but I did get this message:

There's no new Heroes tonight, but we're back next week with an all-new episode and more Heroes Insider Interactive SMS!
http://m.nbc.com/Heroes

I don't think it's worth adding it to the main "Heroes Interactive" page, but I thought it might be worth noting here.--MiamiVolts (talk) 01:06, 4 November 2008 (EST)

1/27/09 message

I just got this message tonight. I think it should have been sent last night, but I guess that's not so important. Documenting it here for completeness: "A new chapter of Heroes begins next wk & Heroes Insider iSMS will be back w/polls, trivia, fun facts, & a chance to win $10k! Tune in Mon @ 9/8c on NBC." --MiamiVolts (talk) 20:46, 27 January 2009 (EST)

2/2/09 messages

My cellular service seems to be down tonight. I can't send any messages (zero bars). I don't think I'll be able to grab the Heroes Interactive tonight. If someone else can do so, many thanks.--MiamiVolts (talk) 22:18, 2 February 2009 (EST)

  • How do you do it? I've always relied on Heroes Wiki for my Heroes Interactive fix. How do I access it on my phone? Is it too late? Any tips for capturing the info? -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 22:50, 2 February 2009 (EST)
    • Well, it looks like my local cellular tower might be being worked on cause my service is going off and on, but it's now working for the moment. If you want to grab it as well just in case, text "HPLAY" to 62288, then reply D (for Pacific Time Zone) (you have to text back D to reply, not just enter D on your phone). You'll be able to participate at Midnight eastern time.--MiamiVolts (talk) 23:12, 2 February 2009 (EST)
      • My cell service is off again. Hope you're recording...--MiamiVolts (talk) 00:14, 3 February 2009 (EST)
        • I've got it going. I don't like that I'll have to be up to 1 am, but I guess there are worse things that have happened. :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:16, 3 February 2009 (EST)
          • It's much appreciated, though. Thanks Ryan.--MiamiVolts (talk) 00:24, 3 February 2009 (EST)
            • No problem. Actually, I quite enjoyed it, and my wife was impressed with the trivia she knew. That, and I forgot I had a nap earlier today, which explains why I'm not so tired as I should be... Plus, when I win the sweepstakes, it'll all be worth it! :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 01:14, 3 February 2009 (EST)
              • Can you check and make sure whether you voted for Hiro or Ando to be right? I think you meant to mark for Ando (option P) (though you put N again by mistake?).--MiamiVolts (talk) 01:26, 3 February 2009 (EST)
                • I put P. I was copying and pasting for formatting and must have forgotten to switch out the right choice. Good catch. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 01:43, 3 February 2009 (EST)
