Time for HGSS. Fill my page with questions. Yay. TTEchidna 03:04, 8 March 2010 (UTC)

Name Change Reminder

I want to remind you about changing my name, now that HGSS is out. Instead of ZeroLatios, I want to change to TyplosionBlaze. I want to change my name because:

1. I like Typlosion more than Latios now.
2. I've been OBSESSED with SoulSilver.

SilverCharmeleon 07:24, 30 March 2010 (UTC)

GUUHH

504's are busting out at me all over. SilverCharmeleon 07:24, 30 March 2010 (UTC)

Well first off: SIGN YOUR MESSAGES. Might be a bad idea for me to change it now, but bug me... erm, next Monday, maybe. We're still getting 503's and 504's all over the place and I don't wanna kill the wiki. TTEchidna 07:25, 30 March 2010 (UTC)

Computer-pedia problems

I've been having problems with my computer. We got a new computer for Christmas and it doesn't function with the wiki properly. ends of pages are cut off, the side toolbar is gone, and the tabs at the top go missing.Thanks for helping.--Frostagin 21:56, 30 March 2010 (UTC)

Likely your browser or internet connection. What're you using, some default garbage like Safari or IE? Get Firefox, you should be golden. If not, check your computer's settings. I've never seen there to be a problem, even on school computers, though, so I can't get my head around it. TTEchidna 00:00, 31 March 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, try Firefox, Opera or Chrome. It'll be better for ya overall. Site doesn't work in those browsers? Most likely the web developers' fault. ;-) ポケモンあいこうか 10:41, 31 March 2010 (UTC)
I 'do' use Firefox, never that piece-of-crap IE. It's probably the computer, because this is a new one.However, using full screen seems to help. --Frostagin 14:58, 1 April 2010 (UTC)
Well, check your Firefox prefs... TTEchidna 18:49, 1 April 2010 (UTC)

Since I can't edit its talk page... (Template:Sidegame)

The recruitment rate parameters for the MD games need to be changed that 'Evolve' can be entered and it will get rid of the percent sign.

Other than that, it's grate. - Chosen of Mana - 01:07, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

Oh I hate side games... Should work fine. TTEchidna 02:21, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

Question about a stub

Is this article still a stub like it says it is on the Main Page? If so could you tell me what to fix? Thanks .insomniac. 07:21, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

Doesn't seem to be. Changing Main Page! TTEchidna 09:42, 31 March 2010 (UTC)
Sweet. Also one more thing, is the synopsis really still incomplete or should that be removed O_o I spent like an hour writing it...I thought it was pretty decent in length and information .insomniac. 09:49, 31 March 2010 (UTC)
If you wrote the synopsis to completion, DUH REMOVE IT. TTEchidna 09:51, 31 March 2010 (UTC)
FFFFFFFF- sorry should have been common sense! Removing it now, thanks for your help dude .insomniac. 09:53, 31 March 2010 (UTC)
Now go fix AG. I don't cover that crap because I hate Hoenn. TTEchidna 09:54, 31 March 2010 (UTC)
 ;_; all in due time sir. I will probably get on that later today, I have to find the episode online and etc. But I will bookmark it and work on it the best I can. .insomniac. 09:56, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

Border-radius

It seems that you're implementing the strings for every compatible browser in the wiki. I must say that as an Opera user, I'm satisfied that I don't have to necessarly use Firefox to have border-radius, even though it still isn't implemented on the whole wiki. Mind if I help? Just tell me what I have to add/change and I'll happily do it. ;-) ポケモンあいこうか 10:47, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

Well, we have a couple templates, {{border-radius}}, {{border-radius2}}, and {{rcorner}}, that'll replace all calls of "-moz-border-radius: **px" on templates and stuff... I wanna try and make them more easily called, though. TTEchidna 20:40, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

Site errors

Are apparent log outs part of the set of predictable errors after the editing of the wiki has been restored? That is, when I open pages, the info sent to the browser is that I'm logged out even though I'm logged in. Refreshing the page seems to solve the issue. ポケモンあいこうか 10:54, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

Might be your cookies as well. TTEchidna 20:49, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

*Yawn*

Well, I love what you've done with the place. The server's still a little slow though....=P --Theryguy512 01:39, 1 April 2010 (UTC)

Yo Ppl R Scared Yo!!!

I understand why editing once per day is good on the servers (I mean that, I am so happy a limit has been established), but the new users aren't getting welcomed because ppl don't want to waste their daily edit on some new user. Can that be an exception or something? (Or has it been an exception and no one knew that?)

--@PrL F0oLz!!! (This Message Is True Though) Landfish7 01:54, 1 April 2010 (UTC)

The one-per-day edit is for the userspace, not for user talk... you can still welcome people. ▫▪Ťïňắ 01:55, 1 April 2010 (UTC)

My Preferences Question

Is there a limit to how many times we can edit "My Preferences" or does that not affect the server at all? --ιɴsσмиιαc 08:20, 1 April 2010 (UTC)

Uhhh... not that I know. Don't go crazy. TTEchidna 08:22, 1 April 2010 (UTC)

Edit Request

Hi TTE. I'm sorry to bother you. I've been having tons of issues with the Hyper Beam page, and I've been trying to put in the endnames for the endcodes of DP152 'Battle Finale of Legends!'. I've been trying extremely hard to get it through, but it never works. Do you think you could give it a try? Dialga, Palkia, and Jupiter's Skuntank is what needs to be done. Please adn thank you. Littlmiget123 19:13, 1 April 2010 (UTC)

Email me the specific edits. TTEchidna 22:25, 1 April 2010 (UTC)
It's sent. Thank you. Littlmiget123 01:47, 2 April 2010 (UTC)
Did you get it? Littlmiget123 18:56, 2 April 2010 (UTC)
Been busy. I'll check it tonight. TTEchidna 20:08, 2 April 2010 (UTC)
Oh, that's fine. I was just wondering because sometimes my e-mails don't go through. Littlmiget123 21:35, 2 April 2010 (UTC)
Thank you very much for doing the edit. I really appriciate you taking time out of your schedule to do such a small thing. For some reason, the Hyper Beam page does not work much for me, even when Bulbapedia wasn't having its problems. Thanks again. Littlmiget123 00:49, 3 April 2010 (UTC)
Believe me, it was hell to get it to go through. TTEchidna 01:00, 3 April 2010 (UTC)
So you had trouble as well? Is it because the page is so big? Littlmiget123 01:09, 3 April 2010 (UTC)
Nope. 504's. TTEchidna 01:41, 3 April 2010 (UTC)
Hi, I'm really sorry to ask you of something else, but I've been trying to put 'endcode=Present' at the end of Dawn's Cyndaquil's section on the move Swift, but it won't go through F|. I've been trying for a half an hour, literally. Can you please try?
Even for me it'd possibly take a half hour to get through. You sure it didn't make it even despite a 503/504? Adding the Dialga, Palkia, and Skuntank thing was a major pita... TTEchidna 20:30, 5 April 2010 (UTC)
I'm sure, every time I would get a 504, I would click refresh on my watchlist on another tab. That's why I'm asking, it was something so small as 'endcode=Present' just once. If you want, I'll try again later. Littlmiget123 20:39, 5 April 2010 (UTC)
Ctrl + R on the 504'd tab, over and over, like a frozen sledgehammer. TTEchidna 20:42, 5 April 2010 (UTC)
Lol, okay, I'll try that. Littlmiget123 21:03, 5 April 2010 (UTC)
I got it. That only took... one try, lol. I guess I just had to wait a while. Littlmiget123 21:07, 5 April 2010 (UTC)
Well there you go then. TTEchidna 21:09, 5 April 2010 (UTC)

Dogasu's Backpack

The Digimon thing was an April Fool's Joke. SilverCharmeleon 18:00, 2 April 2010 (UTC)

Duh? TTEchidna 20:04, 2 April 2010 (UTC)

Also...

Why the hell do we need a Save the Shieldon page? It's just DP045 crammed into a kid's book. SilverCharmeleon 18:18, 2 April 2010 (UTC)

Completeness? I dunno. Bring it up on its talk page or with the article's creator. TTEchidna 20:07, 2 April 2010 (UTC)
It hasn't been created yet, it's on the wanted articles list. SilverCharmeleon 07:14, 10 April 2010 (UTC)

"Anime locations in need of images" Category!

Hey TT, I have a question related to "Anime locations in need of images". How can we provide the images/headers of those anime locations which were never even shown in the anime? Crimson City, Frodomar City, Gerbera Town and Sage Town are included in the category. If there header/image is missing and if they were shown in the anime then it's fine to include them in the category but how can we ever find the images of these articles if they were just mentioned in the anime (not shown). In that case, these articles will remain in that condition + in that category forever and our site will remain incomplete. I am saying that we should remove those articles from that category and only include those articles which were shown in the anime literally and we don't have an image of those. What do you think? ♫♪AdyNiz♪♫ 02:33, 3 April 2010 (UTC)

Obviously. If they can never be removed from the category, don't have them there. TTEchidna 02:43, 3 April 2010 (UTC)
This is kind of dumbish and weird but I can't find that specific category in those articles. The only categories which are mentioned in those articles are " Anime locations, Kanto locations, Cities ". So, how to remove those articles from that category? Can I bother you to do it please? Thank you. ♫♪AdyNiz♪♫ 03:20, 3 April 2010 (UTC)
It's tied to the infobox. And when linking categories, use the {{cat}} link template. TTEchidna 03:33, 3 April 2010 (UTC)
Got it, TT. ♫♪AdyNiz♪♫ 10:59, 3 April 2010 (UTC)

Beautifly? Really?

That's the Pokémon of the day you can think of for Easter?SeanWheeler 14:19, 4 April 2010 (UTC)

It's set to do a random one everyday. DUR! He has no control. MaverickNate 14:33, 4 April 2010 (UTC)

He has no control? But this is his talk page. How does the random Pokémon work? SeanWheeler 14:42, 4 April 2010 (UTC)

It's a randomly calculated number.--MisterE13 14:47, 4 April 2010 (UTC)

How do you people know? Have you been illegally editing TTEchidna's page? SeanWheeler 15:20, 4 April 2010 (UTC)

No, you can look without saving it.--MisterE13 15:23, 4 April 2010 (UTC)

Could you take a look...

Here please and follow the Prev/Nexts I'd love your input on these ideas I've been kicking around for a while.--MisterE13 16:12, 4 April 2010 (UTC)

O_O ummm... They're called evoboxes. Cause they're suopposed to show, umm, you know, evolutions. --electAbuzzzz 17:23, 4 April 2010 (UTC)
Still eh about breedables like Volbeat and Illumise and the Nidoran, but I do like the trio setup somewhat. TTEchidna 19:15, 4 April 2010 (UTC)
...In the evolution section?!? --electAbuzzzz 19:33, 4 April 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, I remebered you toying with the idea. It's not like they're ever going to evolve. What about fossils and masters?--MisterE13 19:36, 4 April 2010 (UTC)
Considering I'm planning to totally revamp the Pokémon pages themselves before Gen V ideally... TTEchidna 19:37, 4 April 2010 (UTC)
We have Manaphy and Phione's relationship which are breedable... Either way, I guess I'll just keep these in the old userpace then?--MisterE13 01:26, 5 April 2010 (UTC)
Manaphy and Phione are a special pair. Phione can only be obtained by breeding Phione. The others don't work that way. TTEchidna 03:19, 5 April 2010 (UTC)

OpenSearch not working

The Bulbapedia OpenSearch browser plugin is not working in Firefox v3.6.3. I like to be able to search sites using these search plugins because it is quick and convenient. It comes as standard with all MediaWiki distributions. The error when trying to add the plug-in to the browser is as follows:

Firefox could not download the search plugin from:
http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/w/opensearch_desc.php

I hope you can fix this problem or point the attention of someone who can to this problem! Thanks :) --Bilge 17:36, 5 April 2010 (UTC)

Hmm. Mine still works, oddly, probably because I installed it before I updated from Firefox 2, even. I'll take it to someone. TTEchidna 20:29, 5 April 2010 (UTC)

SO SORRY

for hurting Typhlosion, but I had a quick question on the Category:(Insert Pokémon) (TCG) categories, like Category:Aron (TCG), for example. Why exactly do we have them?? They are exactly like the (Insert Pokémon) (TCG) pages, but only with less info and no neat looking charts. Sorry for bothering you on a weird question and everything, --Smartkidhen 20:23, 5 April 2010 (UTC)

They keep the pages organized. They make sure we don't miss anything. Why do we have the Fire-type Pokémon category? They're listed on the Template:Type2 page, right? Same with a buttload of other categories. If we didn't have those categories, and we had every Pokémon card page, we might miss some of the ones in the listing, because there's 6000-some cards and thst's not exactly a fun job to find which card you missed by simply looking through every single expansion. TTEchidna 20:27, 5 April 2010 (UTC)

Your Route colors

Where would these be tested, and how so? Cyan Ryan(talk) 02:43, 6 April 2010 (UTC)

Tested? They're tested now. Used? See what links to the locationcolor templates. They'd be for the route infobox and location infobox revamps. TTEchidna 02:53, 6 April 2010 (UTC)

PokémonInfobox Odex

Please fix {{PokémonInfobox}}. Ranger 3 has two browsers, one in the present and one in the past. The one in the present follows the standard "R-###" (like R-001 for Pidgey) while the past follows "N-###" (like N-001 for Piplup). There are exceptions though, like some are only available in the past. Deoxys cannot be found in the present, but it's available in the past with the number "X-001" (it's the only one with X-###). Those only available with the missions obtain via Wi-Fi follow "S-###" (like S-001 for Heatran). In short, present: R-### and S-### & past: N-### and X-###. tc²₆tc26 02:20, 7 April 2010 (UTC)

...the hell were they thinking. Augh, I'm just gonna make four separate listings. TTEchidna 02:25, 7 April 2010 (UTC)
Just make X-### and S-### like SP in Almia's browser. Only one uses X and six use S. tc²₆tc26 02:27, 7 April 2010 (UTC)
In all honesty, Oblivia should have two cells at least, considering it has two listings which are nothing alike. TTEchidna 02:54, 7 April 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for the fix, but please fix the past. Deoxys's should only be X-001, not N-X-001. Thanks. tc²₆tc26 03:00, 7 April 2010 (UTC)
Head. Hit. Keyboard.
I'm gonna just revamp the entire infobox. Stupid. Ranger. Games. TTEchidna 03:43, 7 April 2010 (UTC)

Sinjoh Return/Ethan

A couple things...

Regarding your commentary in the video about returning to Sinjoh Ruins, an “ordinary person” actually can get and use imagery from NASA and the Space Telescope Science Institute( Hubble stuff). It’s mostly public domain. Per some U.S. law( possibly something in the constitution?) many/most works of the United States government can’t be copyrighted, and can be used freely, even for commercial applications as long as A) they don’t contain identifiable images of a person or another copyrighted work and B) the usage does not imply the endorsement of the product by any U.S. government agency.

Also, if you have a moment, could you take a look at the talk page where we are discussing infobox colors for Gold“Ethan”? I think there are several legitimate reasons for leaving them gold, but there are credible( though not terribly compelling) arguments for changing them to soulsilver color, which was done recently. --LaprasBoi 02:30, 7 April 2010 (UTC)

Psh. Well considering how they've walked all over it lately, thanks to Disney and some of the other corporate giants, copyright lasts for life + 70 in most instances. So who knows.
As for Ethan. Yeah no. Don't bother, Gold, Jimmy, and Ethan should keep the same colors. Consistency! TTEchidna 02:40, 7 April 2010 (UTC)

DoucheyCharizard

Erm...... should I welcome them or not? I wanna say no, but it's your call. R.A. Hunter Blade 03:54, 7 April 2010 (UTC)

I'd say... tell them to choose a different name, since that's kind of inappropriate. TTEchidna 04:47, 7 April 2010 (UTC)

template:sitegame and Oblivia

some pokemon have diffrent Pkmn Assist in past and present says serebii.net : http://www.serebii.net/spindex-dp/468.shtml so the template need a edit, or is this already in planing? --Hanmac

No. Frigging. Idea. I don't do the side game thing. We'll get to it eventually; stuff changes for the English release, so we'll be better prepared to do so when that arrives, really. TTEchidna 04:45, 7 April 2010 (UTC)

Question

How does one create a new account, and how can we disable this function? ht14 21:11, 7 April 2010 (UTC)

You just have to make it to that specific special page while logged in. Technically we can't stop you from making a second account (since you could just log out and do so)... but I'll talk to Zhen. TTEchidna 21:15, 7 April 2010 (UTC)

HGSS Eyecatches

Hey TTE, I was working on fixing up the new Eyecatches for Pokemon HeartGold and SoulSilver Version. An example of one is the one on the Bell Tower page with the two Ho-Oh looking statues that changes as the day progresses as that is how we have it set up. Well, it turns out someone wanted to get a bit clever and give us a different set of Eyecatches for the Dark Cave with one set having a Wobuffet on it for the Blackthorn City Entrance and the other set having a Dunsparce on it for Violet City Entrance. I don't know exactly if you want to incorporate all eight, but I was wondering what you thought. Thanks. –MasterKenobi 05:24, 10 April 2010 (UTC)

Ugh that'll be a toughie. TTEchidna 06:57, 10 April 2010 (UTC)
Well here is what I was thinking. We use the Violet entrance as the usual times of 3, 9, 16, and 19 then we use the Blackthorn entrance for the ones in between those two. Let me try it out first and then we can see what you think of it. –MasterKenobi 07:06, 10 April 2010 (UTC)
Hm. Or we could have them alternate by the day of the year? {{#switch: {{#expr: {{#time: z}} mod 2}}|0=Violet|1=Blackthorn}}?
