Scizor and Scissor

I don't think that would be notable considering the similar pronunciation between the two.--ForceFire 12:08, 7 May 2012 (UTC)

Multi-strike moves

Can you do the categories too please? Thanks for your help in getting the correct terminology in use. --SnorlaxMonster 07:49, 9 September 2012 (UTC)

Independent events

Each hit of a multi-strike move is independently affected by the King's Rock/Razor Fang. Using your logic of (number of trials)*(probability of a single event)=(combined probability), if I were to flip two coins, there would be a 100% chance of flipping a heads, as there are 2 events and a 50% chance of heads in each trial. This is explained in further detail on Wikipedia: Independence (probability theory). The actual probability is 75% chance of heads:

Pr(H1∩H2)=Pr(H1)+Pr(H2)-Pr(H1∪H2)
Pr(H1∩H2)=Pr(H1)+Pr(H2)-(Pr(H1)×Pr(H2))
Pr(H1∩H2)=0.5+0.5-(0.5×0.5)
Pr(H1∩H2)=0.75 --SnorlaxMonster 06:48, 12 September 2012 (UTC)

Edit summaries

Hello, I wanted to talk to you about your recent edit summaries. A summary like this is acceptable, but this one is a bit over the line. No user has been targeted directly, yes, but it is still offensive for the user who originally wrote it. I appreciate your help and effort in improving Bulbapedia's articles, but please try to be a bit more polite with the users. It is not a warning, but a kind request to you. It will leave a good impression on our users and it'll encourage them to contribute even more efficiently. I hope you can understand, have a nice day ahead.

I understand, it just bothers me so much that we have to resort to such writing because no one else bothers to do it. I know that these summaries are basically mini-rants of mine and provide no real explanation for the edit itself (other than the obvious correction of aforementioned atrocious writing). I wasn't planning on doing any more rant summaries, but I'll make sure it never happens again. Sorry, and thanks for doing the right thing the right way. --IWannaBeTheVeryBest (talk) 05:55, 11 November 2012 (UTC)

Code of conduct

Please do not assume bad faith and attack people. Pumpkinking's edit summary was in no way condescending, nor was it criticism. It was simply his reasoning for the edit that he had made. There was also no reason for you to bring up that months old incident. People can change, and this person does seem to have learned their lesson. Don't assume that every comment they ever post is with the same attitude. Every single comment you left on their talk page is essentially an attack. Take a day off to think about your attitude, it needs a serious improvement. You should assume that every comment is well meaning and in good faith. Note that this is not in response solely to those comments but your general attitude, which has become a clear problem. Werdnae (talk) 07:46, 22 January 2013 (UTC)
