Just wondering...

You've blocked two or three users just now on the grounds that they are bots. I can't help but wonder, how can you tell? They haven't made any edits yet. - unsigned comment from Missingno. Master (talkcontribs) 03:41, 16 February 2011 (UTC)

I am unable to explain how I can tell that such accounts are bots, as it may allow the bot operators to avoid such detection. However, trust me when I say: If I block an account for being a bot, it is a bot. - Kogoro | Talk to me - 03:59, 16 February 2011 (UTC)
OK. - unsigned comment from Missingno. Master (talkcontribs) 04:03, 16 February 2011 (UTC)

Need some help

A message that I already sent to Kenji-Girl is that the user {{u|ShalashaskaADV]] has been making edits only on his talk page repeatedly, even after administrators had asked him to stop. Could you look into it? -Tyler53841 08:37, 18 February 2011 (UTC)

BW023

Because its title was protected, I had to create it on userspace. Could you mainspace it? Here is proof. And I'm aware that Adyniz has also a page titled "BW023", but if you look closely, it's actually for BW025.----無限の知性DENNOUZENSHI 11:11, 21 February 2011 (UTC)

Messages From Blocked Users

About half an hour ago ( 7:30pm London ) a blocked user messaged me to ask if i can make some edits. While i have no uncertanty towards doing it, i was just wondering if this goes against any rules. The user in question is Rokuto i believe. Just wanted to know before i do anything Robster10 19:56, 28 February 2011 (UTC)

Yes, making edits for blocked users is a violation of the rules, so don't make any edits for them. If you could, please send me a copy of the e-mail (including sender's e-mail address & date/time) using this page. Thanks. - Kogoro | Talk to me - 20:01, 28 February 2011 (UTC)
Did i do the right thing? i feel slightly grassy but if i know its for the greater good then id feel better Robster10 20:31, 28 February 2011 (UTC)
Yes, you did the right thing. No need to worry, we shall be dealing with all of this very soon. Thank you for your assistance. - Kogoro | Talk to me - 20:37, 28 February 2011 (UTC)

Pokemon Podcast

Hey!

Hope all is going well. I'm not sure if you remember my post you blocked back in October of 2010. Anyways, I started making a Bulbapedia page for "The Pokemon Podcast" www.pkmncast.com

It was taken off because: The cast started this summer, it's far too new to be notable enough for an article. (Bulbacast & WTPT have been around for much, much longer than just a few months.) You didn't add any categories, nor did it have the notice for falling under Project Fandom. (Both of these are extremely important, and should never be forgotten.)

Then you said: Now, if the podcast continues to grow and shows notability by the end of the year, we may allow an article to be created.

Well funny story now. The Pokémon Podcast has the most reviews and is the highest rated Pokemon podcast EVER in iTunes, with over 120 five star reviews. On top of that it has 400 likes on the Facebook group, more then WTPT and PUCL. They also have a growing community of 250+ members. I'm not saying that I should be the one to edit it, because I'm not good at that stuff, but I think that ban should be lifted so someone could make the page.

Also, they are selling shirts to donate money to Japan. Pretty cool.

Anyways, hope to hear from you!

Committhistomemory 20:06, 13 April 2011 (UTC)committhistomemory

We'll look into the notability of this podcast. If it's deemed to be notable enough now for an article, we'll let you know & allow a page to be created. - Kogoro | Talk to me - 04:27, 24 April 2011 (UTC)

I'm quite bored

Sorry, I'm a little bit bored and I never use my account once again. Can you delete my account and my messed accounts? PLEASE. The reason why...because I never use my account and little bit bored. I will create a new one soon if you delete it. Is that acceptable? Luis Felix(Appreciate me here | Sandbox | Party) 08:09, 23 April 2011 (UTC)

There's a couple of problems with that idea.
  1. Accounts cannot be deleted for any reason. (We can, however, ban the account so it's inaccessible.)
  2. If you're just going to make another account, what's the point of getting rid of the account you already have?
Unless you have a legitimate reason for us to ban your current account & allow you to come back with a "fresh start," the answer is no. - Kogoro | Talk to me - 04:27, 24 April 2011 (UTC)

Battrio question

Hey Kogoro —

Umeko's been offline for about ten days or so and I have this project ready to go and just need your approval. I'm planning on doing a prev-next template for Project Battrio puck pages, to go at Template:BattrioPuckPrevNext (or some other location). I have the code literally in the editor — I just need the go-ahead. Is this okay?

(You can respond on Umeko's talk page if you want - I asked her before checking whether she's been active. It's fine if you reply here too.) chiefboztalk 23:28, 26 May 2011 (UTC)

Never mind. Umeko and I are talking, so you can ignore this. chiefboztalk 23:40, 26 May 2011 (UTC)

OK

So there's not going to be a page until it's out? ARCEUSVICTINI 13:59, 1 June 2011 (UTC)

Help

Every time I try to edit the top of a page, it will automatically download a file called "index.php" and keep me on the page that I'm on. I just uploaded a picture of Lily of the Valley island and this glitch is preventing me from doing that. I decided to contact you because you are the tech director and this is likely a tech issue either with Bulbapedia or my computer.

Torch 15:05, 8 June 2011 (UTC)

It usually happens when the "Alt" key on your keyboard is pressed. Whenever you try to click on any link, a file i.e "index.php" or a php file with the link's name will be downloaded automatically if you press Alt. So, kindly check the keys of your keyboard whether it's fine or not. It should fix the problem that you're having. Thank you, have a nice day ahead. ♫♪エイディニズ♪♫ 15:17, 8 June 2011 (UTC)

I am sure the alt key is not being pressed. I just tried with them pulled up. I will see if there is something wrong.

Torch 15:43, 8 June 2011 (UTC)

Oh, I'm sorry then it may be something else that I'm unaware of. I'll try to pass it to Kogoro as soon as she's available. ♫♪エイディニズ♪♫ 17:53, 8 June 2011 (UTC)
In your Preferences, under the Editing tab, do you have "Use external editor by default (for experts only, needs special settings on your computer)" checked? If so, make sure it's unchecked. If you also have "Use external diff by default (for experts only, needs special settings on your computer)" make sure that is unchecked as well. Jellotalk 18:57, 8 June 2011 (UTC)

Log Out Troubles

For some reason it keeps logging me out everytime I go to a new page. It says something about session hijacking? Can you help me with this? PkmnChmp5 20:33, 17 July 2011 (UTC)

Happens from time to time. Just hit the F5 and it should say logged in. I have it happen to me sometimes too. Not really much a problem I think. Frozen Fennec

Can't create my Userpage

I am new to Bulbapedia and I don't get how to edit the mainspace and all that. Can you help me with that? - unsigned comment from Mr. RPG (talkcontribs)

You've already been making mainspace edits. Any page without a prefix (Prefixes include User:, Bulbapedia:, Template:, and many others.) is a mainspace page. As for your userpage, you have yet to meet the requirements to edit the User: namespace. Just keep helping the encyclopedia out, and you'll eventually be able to edit your userpage. - Kogoro | Talk to me - 04:17, 31 August 2011 (UTC)
Thank you and I will do what you told me to do. Just keep helping the encyclopedia out. Merci Beaucoup. Je suis un Canadien. - unsigned comment from Mr. RPG (talkcontribs)
Sounds good. Please be sure to sign your talk page comments with four tildes (~~~~) after you leave them. Thanks - Kogoro | Talk to me - 04:42, 31 August 2011 (UTC)

Top contributors

According to my Preferences, I've made 8,908 mainspace edits before this day, which is a little more than Littlmiget123's edits. Did you accidentally forget me or do the Preferences include some edits that don't count towards the TC list?--Den Zen 14:29, 1 September 2011 (UTC)

Pages which are or have since become redirects don't count. And it's not a matter of forgetting - the numbers are provided by a software script. Werdnae (talk) 20:51, 1 September 2011 (UTC)
Additionally, the number in your preferences is overall edits. The TC list records mainspace edits only. —darklordtrom 05:05, 3 September 2011 (UTC)

Alipikachu

Why do you always block my way --Alipikachu 14:35, 21 September 2011 (UTC)

You're not editing within the spirit of Bulbapedia's mission. You're simply trying to force the system into allowing you to edit the userspace. Such abuse of the system will not be tolerated, as the userspace is a privilege that is meant to be earned. If you can't follow the rules & edit with Bulbapedia's mission in mind, you're just going to have a lot of trouble with the staff. So please, take some time to read up on the rules. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 14:41, 21 September 2011 (UTC)

Don't understand

Why did you revert all of my minor edits to the project notice pages? I don't find anything wrong with linking to the Pokémon franchise pages. I thought you are supposted to link whenever possible. Alot of the messages referred to them, can you explain what I did wrong for next time? You never stated a reason. Thank You. --Pokemaster97 23:22, 11 October 2011 (UTC)

  1. Edits to project notices need to be approved. This can be done either by the Project Leader, or by a Staff Member of Administrator level or higher.
  2. Links in project notices should be exceptionally relevant to the span of the project itself. BerryDex -> Berries, Music -> Songs, CDs, and Musicians. Etc.
While Pokémon is an important page, it really doesn't need to be linked to via every single page cause of the project notices. Linking whenever possible is not the idea, otherwise every instance of "Snivy" would be linking (which isn't done, cause that's excessive). Linking when something first appears in an article, and in the case of templates, when it's relevant to link. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 23:37, 11 October 2011 (UTC)
I understand. Sorry :( --Pokemaster97 23:46, 11 October 2011 (UTC)

On my talk page

Hey Kogoro, when can I edit my user page? Is there an amount of articles I have to edit before I can type things on my user page? Thanks. Totozapper 09:38, 1 November 2011 (UTC)

There are specific, but secret, requirements in order to be able to edit the userspace. So, unfortunately, I can't tell you what those requirements are. Just keep editing the mainspace for a while and eventually you will be able to edit your userpage when you check it. Sorry I can't offer much in the way of information, - Kogoro - Talk to me - 11:41, 1 November 2011 (UTC)
K thanks very much! Totozapper 07:37, 3 November 2011 (UTC)

You're cool

You played Pokémon Rumble Blast that far? Good job if this is true.--My r6g4rdz, TEH GIGA-UBER-1337-HAX0R 11:45, 1 November 2011 (UTC)

Non-wiki discussion such as this should really be conducted on the forums. Yes, I've completed the story of Pokémon Rumble Blast. So, yeah, thank you on the compliment. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 11:56, 1 November 2011 (UTC)

BW060

Hi, Please see this [wikipedia]. The page that I created was the PART 2 (i.e 2nd part ). BW059 along with BW060 are scheduled to air at the same time in japan.
BW059 - トルネロスVSボルトロスVSランドロス!(前編) "Tornelos vs. Voltolos vs. Landlos! (Part 1)"
BW060 - トルネロスVSボルトロスVSランドロス!(後編) "Tornelos vs. Voltolos vs. Landlos! (Part 2)" --✔Poke.geek✔ 17:40, 15 November 2011 (UTC)

Wikipedia is not a viable source, nor is it an official source. The user who added that episode to that Wikipedia article cites no official source. If you can present an official source for that episode, I will restore it. But until then, it remains protected from speculative creation. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 17:46, 15 November 2011 (UTC)
This is not an official source , but Japanese Bulbapedia ( ポケモンWiki) has a article on BW060 - see this. - unsigned comment from Poke.geek (talkcontribs)
As you said, they're not official either. While they are our Japanese partner (They are not "Japanese Bulbapedia."), it does not mean that because they have a premature article for something we must make one prematurely as well. Bulbapedia policy states to wait for an official announcement, and that will be followed. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 17:54, 15 November 2011 (UTC)
Oh. Okay, Sorry then. I'll wait till the official announcement. --✔Poke.geek✔ 17:56, 15 November 2011 (UTC)


Battle Royale and team battle EX-6

Well, The power requirements and the "claims" are from a few videos Where people actually PLAY the Levels. You apprently haven't played Battle Royale and Team Battle EX-6 Yet.--My r6g4rdz, TEH GIGA-UBER-1337-HAX0R(Mr-ex777) 12:13, 16 November 2011 (UTC)

Provide these videos. The difficulty rankings I have for all of these have been ???. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 12:17, 16 November 2011 (UTC)
[1] Battle Royale
[2] Team Battle

--My r6g4rdz, TEH GIGA-UBER-1337-HAX0R(Mr-ex777) 12:19, 16 November 2011 (UTC)

OK you win. but every single list about battle royales and team battles have the power level listed.--My r6g4rdz, TEH GIGA-UBER-1337-HAX0R(Mr-ex777) 12:23, 16 November 2011 (UTC)
If the difficulty is listed as ???, we don't add assumptions based upon player recommendations, additionally, Team Battles never have a difficulty level. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 12:34, 16 November 2011 (UTC)

Editing

Sorry about the mix-up. Anyways I've stopped editing my User page like you asked me too. But am I allowed to edit other pages or do I have to wait till tomorrow to edit other pages as well. Pardon my lack of etiquette, I'm still kind of new to this. - unsigned comment from Naui (talkcontribs)

The only pages you are not to edit anymore today are pages with the prefix User:, you may still edit any page that does not have the User: prefix. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 08:18, 19 November 2011 (UTC)
okay got it so I can still continue to edit BW049?Naui 08:21, 19 November 2011 (UTC)

Pokémon: Den of Ages

Why is PDoA not notable enough to warrant a page? Its mentioned in another page and has a large, striving community and continued development. - Navarr 22:56, 25 November 2011 (UTC)

Just because something is mentioned on another page, doesn't mean it's notable enough for a page of its own. There's hundreds of different fandom members & fan sites mentioned on pages, which simply don't meet notability standards. By what I can see, without installing their illegal software, their community isn't what I would call striving. Can you offer up some exact information? Daily visits, total number of players, total number of active players, and similar information? As for continued development, the page you created noted that the original title wasn't under any further development and that they've moved onto a sequel, of sorts. Also, do you happen to be connected to the creation, maintenance, staffing, or hosting of the Pokémon: Den of Ages game? - Kogoro - Talk to me - 10:14, 27 November 2011 (UTC)

Can you please move my first mainspace article

Cache update

Hello, Kogoro! When I uploaded Phoebe's Dusclops in January, I waited days and the image was still wrong sized. Maybe Bulbapedia has changed this in the last update, IDK. Anyways, is there a method I can use to prevent this when I upload? |) u |( e 15:38, 5 December 2011 (UTC)

We didn't have this CDN caching system in January, and the Archives didn't like to sync up properly with Bulbapedia at that time. With the new system, an image should update to the newest version within 24 hours of the upload. Just need to be patient, the images will definitely update on their own now. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 15:43, 5 December 2011 (UTC)

One question

When Sunglasse Krokorok is moved will it be named Ash's Krokorok or Ash's Sunglasse Krokorok if it happens? Chomper4 19:49, 10 December 2011 (UTC)

Would have been nice if I was given a few minutes to possibly answer a question on my own talk page ^^; Anyway, as Dennou Zenshi said, the article would be renamed "Ash's Krokorok" if Ash ever catches it. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 20:02, 10 December 2011 (UTC)

Sorry about that

Just saw the Brown template on list of wanted templates and made it. My bad. --BaileyPlaysPokemon 06:47, 14 December 2011 (UTC)

No need to worry. Make sure you remember; just because something is on the wanted pages/templates/files, doesn't mean it's actually wanted. It could be a mis-link, and those should be fixed. So, be very careful when creating things on those lists. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 06:50, 14 December 2011 (UTC)

Outside Images

Hey, I wanted to know something. Recently, a user put very inappropriate images on the site. I was wondering if it is possible to prevent something like that from happening again by preventing outside images. :--SuperAipom7 (Need me?) 21:18, 14 December 2011 (UTC)

That vandal didn't use an outside image, they manually uploaded it to the Archives. Regardless, no, we will not disable the use of outside images on Bulbapedia. Since the Archives no longer allows personal images, outside images are a courtesy that we allow so users can still use personal images on their personal pages. We're not going to take that courtesy away, just because a rare vandal might abuse it. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 21:40, 14 December 2011 (UTC)

May I make my page for BW065? Chomper4 14:47, 18 December 2011 (UTC)

An article for BW065 is not to be made until there's enough information about the episode. At this time, there is not enough information to warrant the episode having an article. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 06:01, 20 December 2011 (UTC)

Trouble on Poképédia

Hi! I'm GreyDragon from Poképédia (the French wiki), and I'm afraid we may have issues with... well... French guys (French Pokéweb is sometimes troublesome because of their - what they think is - humor). So I come and ask you, since you seem to be the (new) head of Bulbagarden archives (congratulations!).

These good fellows have the greatest idea to create an account, then upload A-rated pictures (mostly men with men, but whatever). Have Bulbagarden achives people already dealt with this kind of trouble? Or do you have any idea which could help us preventing this from happening again?

Or you may know someone who knows someone who knows someone who could help us?

Thank you very much. GreyDragon 16:10, 19 December 2011 (UTC)

I'd suggest that Poképédia works on building a dedicated, serious, effective, and exceptionally active administrative base to help deal with banning the vandals & deleting their images & edits in a timely fashion. Additionally, a MediaWiki setting change could help; setting upload rights specifically to the "autoconfirmed" user group and increasing the number of days/edits needed for a user to enter that group might discourage a fair number of image vandals. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 06:01, 20 December 2011 (UTC)

Sock puppet

Sock puppet alert! -- User talk:Trev1234567 and User talk:Trev1234571 -- ✔Poké.geek✔ 18:58, 23 December 2011 (UTC)

When the names of two accounts are that extremely similar, and both sign up within mere minutes of one another... It's generally not a sockpuppet. It's more likely that there was a problem with the first account's e-mail, so they had to make another account to properly sign up & start editing. If something like that happens again, and I'm sure it will, feel free to give one of us a calm message about it. Thanks, - Kogoro - Talk to me - 23:21, 23 December 2011 (UTC)

Archives bar

Hey there. This is Archives-related, but I assume you check your TP here much more frequently. The bar at the top reads, "Got a spare minute? The Archives needs some love." I realize that's referring to the Archives as a collective unit, hence the singular "needs," but it ought to be "need." I'm a stickler for bringing it up, I know, especially on a talk page, but I just happened to notice it at school and don't have access to AIM. Do you have the technical capabilities to fix that, if you deem it important enough? --P o L i 14:55, 13 January 2012 (UTC)

Reversion

Why exactly did you revert me?--SandmanDP 04:54, 16 January 2012 (UTC)

As you've been told multiple times on Jessie's talk page, Prof. Westward V's Slowpoke/Slowbro does not belong under Jessie's ownership. If there is an ongoing discussion regarding information that may be debatable, nobody should be adding such information to pages unless the discussion resolves with such an addition being acceptable. Such a blatant disregard for an ongoing discussion is not acceptable, and can result in offending users being blocked. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 05:07, 16 January 2012 (UTC)
There was no indication that it's been more than one time. He was dancing around a direct answer, yet giving the explanation that Jessie must have done more to qualify for no reason--SandmanDP 05:08, 16 January 2012 (UTC)
MisterE13 stated his point multiple times. When you misunderstood the direct response, he resorted to a metaphor in order to try and explain it. When you complained about that, he restated it directly. From your following comment it appears you misread his direct statement then too. Of course, none of that actually matters. Stuff should never be added to a page when there's an ongoing discussion about its addition in which there has been no agreement. Werdnae (talk) 05:20, 16 January 2012 (UTC)
He didn't give a direct response until I confronted him a second time about it. Stop making things up please--SandmanDP 05:21, 16 January 2012 (UTC)

OK but Why?--My r6g4rdz, TEH GIGA-UBER-1337-HAX0R(Mr-ex777) 06:20, 16 January 2012 (UTC)
There is no point in glamorizing the act of vandalism by giving them even more attention. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 06:23, 16 January 2012 (UTC)
*cough* we do actually have this. Vuvuzela2010 Δ 19:32, 29 January 2012 (UTC)
  1. That is an old administrative listing from 2006 that has had five updates between then & now (all in 2008). There is also a major difference between a listing meant as a tool to fight vandals, and an article that would just be giving them attention.
  2. Such vandal-related pages (yes, including the Turkey Shoot page) will very likely be going away in the near future, so no need to worry about them. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 13:31, 30 January 2012 (UTC)

IceLibra's Stunfisk picture

I know there's really no point in mentioning this, but since I saw that he kept putting it back, I feel I should say something. Obviously it doesn't matter since he was edit warring anyway, but that Stunfisk picture was stolen from Serebii too. Like, literally copied and pasted. I guess I'm just saying to keep an additional eye on him if he's uploading stolen pictures in addition to edit warring, because even if he stops the latter he could still do the former.

Just thought I should say something. --The Great Butler 08:29, 16 January 2012 (UTC)

Back

Hey I'm Back Do you remember me? But... Where is my old enemy PsychicRyder.........!!!!؟؟؟؟????
Another thing I archived my talk page but how to remove the redirects please help me --Alipikachu ~~ Talk 13:13, 29 January 2012 (UTC)

  1. Yes, I remember you.
  2. PsychicRider is no longer a Bulbawiki editor. Additionally, I wouldn't suggest going around calling anyone your enemy.
  3. Your talk page has been fixed and if you want to know how to do so, just check what I changed via the history tab on your talk page. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 15:14, 29 January 2012 (UTC)

This guy looks like a sockpuppet of LegandofThor2 and Mike234. Might want to look into that. PattyMan 19:15, 29 January 2012 (UTC)

Userspace

Hi . which pages should i edit to gain the userspace exactly.Is talkpages in that list??

Another Thing Is that really that you used Persian Names on your pokemons ... U know I'm Persian People
I wonder if you tell me how did you make the HP Bar on the top of Page???

·ï¡÷¡ï· ~~ αlιρικαchu »-(¯`v´¯)-» тαlĸ ~~ ·ï¡÷¡ï· 15:55, 4 February 2012 (UTC)

  1. Mainspace pages, the ones without a prefix like Talk:, Appendix:, or Shipping:. Examples include Ash Ketchum, Pikachu (Pokémon), and Pokémon Crystal Version. However, you should be editing in order to better Bulbapedia, not just to be allowed to edit the userspace.
  2. Uh, yeah, my Seismitoad from Black uses a mythological Persian name. I am not sure how this is relevant to Bulbapedia, though...
  3. You're free to take a look at the code of my archival HP bar here. When you're allowed to edit the userspace, you're free to try your hand at making something similar. Just don't copy & paste the code or violate the userspace policy, be original & create your own style. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 03:11, 5 February 2012 (UTC)

What am I?

Hi there.I think I'm Autoconfirmed but i can't edit my userspac what is it? - unsigned comment from Alipikachu (talkcontribs)

This the reason. Also, always sign your talk page comments with four ~~~~.please Jaison Clinton Castelino 14:52, 7 February 2012 (UTC)
Oh sorry I forgot it αlιρικαchu ~ ·ï¡÷¡ï· ~ тαlĸ 19:04, 7 February 2012 (UTC)
That is actually not the case. If you check here, I added you to the abuse usergoup when you were blocked for abusing mainspace pages in order to get the privilege to edit your userpage. Since your return from your ban, you have currently made; 26 User talk: edits and 2 mainspace edits. When you have made enough contributions to Bulbapedia's mainspace, I will remove you from the abuse usergroup and you will be able to create a user page. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 20:06, 7 February 2012 (UTC)
How many edits should i do? is 10 or 20 enough?--αlιρικαchu ~ ·ï¡÷¡ï· ~ тαlĸ 14:12, 8 February 2012 (UTC)
That is not your concern...... If you have signed in for contributing, then edit the mainspace.........Bulba is a Encyclopaedia ,,,, not a show-off website..............--Jaison Clinton Castelino 14:40, 8 February 2012 (UTC)
@Alipikachu: Just like the requirements to gain the userspace normally, I'm not going to give a number. Simply make helpful & correct edits in the mainspace, you will eventually be taken out of the abuse group when the time is right.
@Clinton Jai: Respectfully, please don't reply to questions that don't concern you. Your response to the first question was incorrect, and the latest question is really something only the staff should be responding to. Also, you don't need the large mass of periods between statement sections. Thank you, - Kogoro - Talk to me - 21:37, 8 February 2012 (UTC)
Sorry I should not have bugged others talk page.--Jaison Clinton Castelino 02:52, 9 February 2012 (UTC)

There again

hi can u tell me how many edis i have up to now--αlιρικαchu ~ ·ï¡÷¡ï· ~ тαlĸ 08:43, 13 February 2012 (UTC)

wow what a beautifull sign I have.lol --αlιρικαchu ~ ·ï¡÷¡ï· ~ тαlĸ 08:44, 13 February 2012 (UTC)
Since your return: 3 Mainspace, 23 Redirects, 55 User talk, 4 Project.
Since you registered: You can use the above link and count for yourself. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 09:07, 13 February 2012 (UTC)
But aren't Redirects count as mainspace?__αlιρικαchu ~ ·ï¡÷¡ï· ~ тαlĸ 10:05, 13 February 2012 (UTC)

Rename

Can you change my username???--αlιρικαchu ~ ·ï¡÷¡ï· ~ тαlĸ 11:18, 16 February 2012 (UTC)

Username changes are a real pain to do and as such are reserved for users that have made a significant number of useful mainspace contributions. You have not yet contributed enough to the wiki. Werdnae (talk) 02:19, 17 February 2012 (UTC)

New Language Request

Hello, I have a request for my page. Even though it is an odd language, I can speak Hawaiian and I would like to be able to put that as a language template/badge thing for my profile. You know, the "This user is a native speaker (insert language)." So a "This user is a native speaker of Hawaiian" and all other variations of that. Is is possible to create one of those or do we need to have multiple people request that? Thanks for taking time to read my request- Naui 11:14, 13 March 2012 (UTC)

I'm not entirely sure if we'd really need a babel tag specifically for the Hawaiian language, mainly due to it being a regional language rather than a national language. I would suggest that you use the specific {{Babel N}}, {{Babel 4}}, {{Babel 3}}, {{Babel 2}}, or {{Babel 1}} base tag for your needs, at least for now. If the language does come to show a high enough userbase on Bulbapedia, an official tag may be reasonable & be given approval. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 11:44, 13 March 2012 (UTC)

Non-Authentic Maps

I see, thanks. So does that mean they can remain until and if someone manages to produce authentic in-game maps? Cheers, Haxorus 02:19, 14 March 2012 (UTC)

Renaming

As follow-ups to this and this, I'd like to request a username change to SatoMew. SatoMew 14:25, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

Unfortunately, it looks like you are going to have to wait a while longer for the rename. We are currently having some technical issues that prevent us from doing any renames, and we most likely will not be able to remedy them until June. So, I also regret that I have to request that you modify your signature to contain something that represents your current username. When everything is repaired, we will be sure to let you know and give you the rename if you still want it. I apologize for the inconvenience this causes, - Kogoro - Talk to me - 10:22, 19 March 2012 (UTC)

Team Galactic HQ

Hi,

May I know how come the maps are to stay at 350px? OK, perhaps my original sizing was far too large, but how come it's 350, rather than, say, 400 or something?

Thanks for your time and have a pleasant day. Cheers, Haxorus 07:46, 21 March 2012 (UTC)

The page still requires Platinum maps of the Veilstone Galactic HQ. 400px would cause too much screen stretching for readers using smaller resolutions. 350px will keep any stretching to a minimum, while still offering a reasonably sized thumbnail that allows readers to get an understanding of the floor layouts without making viewing of the full-size map mandatory. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 07:57, 21 March 2012 (UTC)
Wow. Thanks for the illuminating explanation. I get it now. Have a nice day :-) Cheers, Haxorus 09:05, 21 March 2012 (UTC)

Pokemon Database

Hi, Magnedeth deleted Pokemon Database but he's away now so I was wondering if you'd be able to restore it please? It's a clearly notable site (pokemondb.net), at least the 5th most popular Pokemon fansite out of ALL of them, if not 4th or 3rd. Just look at how many non-notable and dead sites there are in the fan sites category. Thanks in advance.
