Theres been rumblings of too much non-'pedia discussion around here, so, in best interest of that, if you want to tell me somthing personal, or just plain off-topic, send me a PM instead of commenting here.

BTW...tired of waiting for a new Pokémon game just to tackle some new gyms? Then bring it on.


Could I update the Bulbapedia:Project MoveDex page? It looks like a bit of a mess at the moment and I don't think users know what they're looking at for a template. I was thinking of rearranging it so that we have a section first of what it should look like in the edit box and out of the edit box, with each section described. TESHIGIGAS 17:27, 2 November 2008 (UTC)

i suppose. im not even sure what that project is supposed to do. guess that says something, doesnt it? granted, im not exactly the person to talk to when it comes to projects. -- MAGNEDETH 17:33, 2 November 2008 (UTC)

Unown template

Is it more useful than the Arceus one or should I move/put it up for deletion as well Template:Sprite/4/28formes--MisterE13 18:56, 2 November 2008 (UTC)

no, we dont need that. our Unown template is fine. if you want to keep that one for yourself you do that, then tell me, and ill delete it. -- MAGNEDETH 18:58, 2 November 2008 (UTC)
OK, I moved it, could you please recreate the Arceus one and post on my page so I can move it.--MisterE13 00:05, 3 November 2008 (UTC)
do it to it. -- MAGNEDETH 00:11, 3 November 2008 (UTC)
meh. i did it for you. -- MAGNEDETH 00:23, 3 November 2008 (UTC)
I actually wanted to merge the two together. What are the rules for that?--MisterE13 01:58, 3 November 2008 (UTC)

youve got mail

--Guardian of Earth |SGMS 2010

this isnt BP related. ill check my mail when i check my mail. -- MAGNEDETH 01:55, 6 November 2008 (UTC)


User is abusing the userspace, already received 3 warnings for over-editing the userspace. Might you put an edit protect onto both userpages he has been editing, at least until a Bureaucrat can add him to Abuse? He has been editing his own userpage, and Ashura's. (Hopefully you're still online) - Kogoro | Talk to me | 01:19, 7 November 2008 (UTC)

sort of sucks i dont have the ability to put someone in abuse, but, i do what i can. meanwhile, i think were going to have to look into why this person was editing two pages. -- MAGNEDETH 01:26, 7 November 2008 (UTC)
Aye, would be nice if standard Administrators could throw a user into abuse. Thanks for doing the protects though. I'm somewhat assuming that there's about 4 options. Sockpuppet, Sibling/Family Member, Friend, or they're a couple. (Though I think that covers everything...) However, since the 2nd username hasn't made an edit yet, I believe that Check users can't check their IPs yet. - Kogoro | Talk to me | 01:32, 7 November 2008 (UTC)
well, as you can see in RC, ive enlisted the help of a boss man. should have it sorted out in no time. -- MAGNEDETH 01:34, 7 November 2008 (UTC)



I'm really sorry about what happened yesterday. I didn't know how to check messages. I saw all of the warnings now, and I didn't understand that I'm not supposed to do what I did. The user "Ashura" is not mine, it's my friend's. She asked me to edit her userpage, because she didn't know how to. Is there a way to bring back what I did?

Neri ^^ - sort of unsigned comment from Neri (talkcontribs)

can we bring it back? yes. but, you arent supposed to edit other peoples userpages. even friends. at the request of your friend, we can bring it back, but, you wont be getting your userspace privileges back unless you contribute to the mainspace a bit. thats just the rules. -- MAGNEDETH 23:15, 7 November 2008 (UTC)

I'll ask her to comment here. I really didn't know how to read my messages, or anything like that, but now I do. I would've stopped after the first warning. You said I could get my privileges back if I contribute to the mainspace. I'd love to do so, but, umm, what's the mainspace? Sorry for being such a noob. I'm new to all of these terms and it'll take me some time to understand.

Thanks for everything, Neri - sort of unsigned comment from Neri (talkcontribs)

the mainspace is basically any page that doesnt start with "User". an example would be any Pokemon page, like Magnemite, or any anime page, like EP030, or any other page really, like Wattson. just make sure that anything you edit uses shortlinks, and doesnt link to a page that doesnt exist. for more information on how to edit, on your talk page, the big welcome you have contains pretty much anything you should have a question about. and if that doesnt, the all knowing Manual of style should have it. if neither do, feel free to ask. also, you can sign your name by simply inputting four tildes (~~~~). -- MAGNEDETH 18:45, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

What did you write on my usertalk page..? It's hard to understand.. Neri 19:40, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

just ignore it, i was yelling at DCM. -- MAGNEDETH 19:40, 8 November 2008 (UTC)
Yes. Whatever you say deth. *nods head*--DCM((Shut the **** upSpy on My Edits))

User Page Edits

Isn't the official policy that you can't edit others' user talk pages without permission? --Raijinili 23:38, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

no. the policy is you cant edit other user's main pages. how would we get anything done otherwise? -- MAGNEDETH 00:42, 9 November 2008 (UTC)
Well, that should be added to the policy page. --Raijinili 01:11, 9 November 2008 (UTC)
It already is. That is the entire userspace policy. --((Marton imos)) 01:17, 9 November 2008 (UTC)
Corrected "others' talk pages" to "others' user pages" --Raijinili 01:18, 9 November 2008 (UTC)
ill check it out. -- MAGNEDETH 01:19, 9 November 2008 (UTC)
i feel as though that should cover it. its pretty straightforward. -- MAGNEDETH 01:24, 9 November 2008 (UTC)


Why did you move it? The tiers aren't official, which is why the page was in the Appendix: name space. Chocolate 21:24, 10 November 2008 (UTC)

given the overload of users complaining that our tiers wernt "correct" we came to the conclusion that BP doesnt need tiers. this is a wiki, and we specialize in factual information. -- MAGNEDETH 22:49, 10 November 2008 (UTC)


Hi, I noticed the edit on Daisy. You said no pages linked to it as Daisy being Bill's sister. Gotcha! Bill's Grandpa. --Prmatt11 00:51, 12 November 2008 (UTC)

yea, no pages link to Daisy, bill's sister, and they dont. you liked to Bill. and just now you linked to Bills grandpa. what does he have to do with any of this?? -- MAGNEDETH 00:54, 12 November 2008 (UTC)
Sorry, I was looking at an older version of the page.( I'm having a rough day today.--Prmatt11 01:01, 12 November 2008 (UTC)
its alright. we all have our days. -- MAGNEDETH 01:04, 12 November 2008 (UTC)


Hello, I am a rather dormant user. You see, I joined the community a few months ago, and since then, I have been finding it difficult where to begin. I only have about 60 content-related edits. I have noticed that the recent changes page tends to move like that of Wikipedia's, quickly and uneasily. Users seem to make edits here more related to code and such, and seeing as it is blocked from IP address editing, it is less prone to vandalism. It is a very nicely written and organized wikia, and the top-editors here should very proud of themselves. So please, if you know how to get me started up again, I'd like to here what you have to say. Bulbapedian - Talk 23:30, 13 November 2008

well, i guess ill start off with, thanks for the compliment. as for editing? well, hard to say. its not so much "do this" or "do that", its more along the lines of, you have to ask yourself, "what can i do?" if you like the anime, and know a lot about it, you can head to any anime page and do whatever. fix errors, add synopsis, etc. you like games? same goes for games too. pretty much anything. if you know "a bit" about those things, and would rather leave it to the knowledge heads, you could snoop around and do templates. we just created a new party/team template (which can be seen here) and that needs to be added to lots of pages. im also not sure if weve finished Platinum move tutors on every Pokemon, so, you could look around for that. a big project is to upload sprites onto the archives, thats on my to-do list. in reality, theres always the stuff on the main page. dirty articles and missing articles. in the end, you dont HAVE to do anything. theres no obligation. hanging around the RC in case of a vandal is nice, and making only a few edits is fine, as long as you dont abuse the userspace or talk pages. in the end, do what you can, and edit what you want. if you have any questions, the welcome no your talk page should give you an idea, or the venerable, Manual of style. -- MAGNEDETH 23:51, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

Big Fat Meanie

Why are you so mean? I was trying to have a perfectly "relevant" conversation on that vile robot's disgusting talk page and you had to protect it. Why do you hate me so much? You're sending me into a deep, spiraling depression because I have feelings unlike you. SPIRALING!!! --DialgaRULES 00:36, 14 November 2008 (UTC)

as previously stated, and i quote:
shut up people. do something useful.
deal with it. -- MAGNEDETH 00:37, 14 November 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for making my comment into a section with a completely inappropriate title. You make me sound like an idiot. I hate you almost as much as I hate Palkia. But not quite. But you're getting closer to that low every day... --DialgaRULES 00:40, 14 November 2008 (UTC)
well, your comment had nothing to do with the previous topic. if you had created a separate section, like youre supposed to, then that wouldnt have happened. moroever, you argued about a completely ridiculous, and pointless point. i dont see why i should throw you any favors. meanwhile, ill go back to training my Palkia. -- MAGNEDETH 00:43, 14 November 2008 (UTC)
What, don't I count as a new user? When are you not counted as a new user anymore? When you're pushed off the User creation log, or after you get picked on by MAGNEDETH? --DialgaRULES 00:44, 19 November 2008 (UTC)
when you stop acting like an idiot, thats when. you yelled at the kid for a completely harmless comment to a good revert. also, if you dont know what "AWOL" and "reprimand" are, then i suggest you go do your homework, rather than argue about something so trivial. i said formally, not aggressively, that you shouldnt have yelled at him. so you decide to get ornery with me? you need to take a chill-pill or your going to find yourself on the business end more times than you care to know. -- MAGNEDETH 00:54, 19 November 2008 (UTC)
Heres a hint bud: SHUT YOUR TRAP! your not making any friends by picking such a stupid fight over something so trivial. so shut up and end this topic--DCM((Shut the **** upSpy on My Edits))
You're such a meanie, Mag. >:( Glinn Mgraw 01:11, 19 November 2008 (UTC)


Go tell User talk:Zxeonz that there is no freakin' MOWTA!!! He keeps screwing up the Arceus article to make it look like ther is such thing as a Mowta. I told him to go create it at his user thingy, but maybe you should go tell him what that fanon wikia is. Be harsh like you always are. Thanks. --DialgaRULES 00:05, 15 November 2008 (UTC)

he knows there no Mowta himself. hes most likely just another wannabe vandal/idiot user. -- MAGNEDETH 00:11, 15 November 2008 (UTC)
What is Mowta?--DCM((Shut the **** upSpy on My Edits))
Crap fanon by Zxeonz. BTW, Magnedeth, go delete the page he just made about Mowta. --DialgaRULES 00:19, 15 November 2008 (UTC)
guess im too fast for you. -- MAGNEDETH 00:20, 15 November 2008 (UTC)

Re: your message

Keeping the discussion in one place -- THE TROM 01:19, 14 November 2008 (UTC)


Talked to TTE about this. He might do this later. See if you like the template idea for Trainer's Eyes:

Tate and Liza File:SpriteTateandLiza.png Mossdeep City File:Moving PokeBall.gif
Strategy: We battle in cooperation
Trainer's Pokémon: Always friendly Pokémon
Self-Introduction: We understand each other, and we understand others.

If you do, great! TTE told me that it'd be better with an actual table for the widths, so can you help me? ht14 04:27, 17 November 2008

probably better off waiting for TTE on this one. -- MAGNEDETH 04:52, 17 November 2008 (UTC)
Ok then, thanks! ht14 04:54, 17 November 2008 (UTC)

I tried it your way

AND it didnt work. So ive dropped the email idea for now as you hardly answer, please just unblock me on Aim so I can talk to you fully there. Just hear me out, and I wont mention, the I... Proboard at all. --Guardian of Earth |SGMS 2010
