== Username Change ==
Archaic told me you were the one to talk to about username changes.
My friend is no longer able to use this account so I was wondering if I could simplify things and call it Zephy.Changes?
That's is the name of my other accounts on everything and that way my computer only has to remember one username and password.
Thank you.

Happy new year!
-2160 -20 -21 -31
days hours minutes seconds

I'm gonna be stuck in Florida for about a week starting today, so I likely will have much less of a chance to do anything around here until next year begins.

Poli, Deth, Kogs, and evkl, you're all in charge of getting a flooded talk page questions from Bulbapedia's users for a week or so.

Anyway, I'll just leave a countdown here to my estimated return... which is on January 1, at midnight.

Have a good new year, guys, and enjoy that extra leap second we're getting! TTEchidna 09:18, 26 December 2008 (UTC)

*flaunts his magical ability to spam protected pages*

You may have to perform a hard-refresh to see it, but there's a sexy new UTC-time clock on the top bar. Bask in its glory. Click on its wonderful cache-purging functionality. And point to it as you ban poor userspace-abusing souls. -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 20:44, 29 December 2008 (UTC)

Could you shrink it to the same size as the other links up there, and put it over on the left side instead? It's nice though. TTEchidna 22:50, 29 December 2008 (UTC)
Kogoro fixed the size. Don't know an quick and easy way to put it on the left, though. Wouldn't it run into problems with the site logo if it was on that side anyway? -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 05:01, 30 December 2008 (UTC)
I mean, you know, not TO the logo, but at the top of the page at the leftmost part of the actual page content, rather than the sidebar. TTEchidna 05:11, 30 December 2008 (UTC)
Ah, in the portlet? It's possible to do that... wouldn't be as easy to see it IMO, if it was mixed in with the navigation and whatnot, but it might be doable.
EDIT: nvm, I see what you mean. Not sure about that, you could probably indent it, but that might not work with all screen resolutions. -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 05:15, 30 December 2008 (UTC)
Hrm, ah well. Now if we can get a count of how many User: namespace edits someone's made during the current day... TTEchidna 05:18, 30 December 2008 (UTC)
shame we can't do that. -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 05:22, 30 December 2008 (UTC)
Oh there's a way... Top contributors is determined from a count, so if we could tweak that... TTEchidna 05:23, 30 December 2008 (UTC)

(ri): It's also possible to do the link I just posted in interwiki form (i.e., not an outside link). If I can figure that out, then you can just set it to look for BASEPAGENAME, and insert it into one of the sidebars, perhaps. Assuming it can be set to only show up on userpages. -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 05:28, 30 December 2008 (UTC)

Hmm. TTEchidna 05:33, 30 December 2008 (UTC)


The number of daily User: name space edits allowed has increased to 4? Chocolate (Chat with Me) 00:06, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

Really. TTEchidna 00:09, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
That should be announced so people don't mess up (As much, I'm sure people will still be warned for 3 edits for a while). 00:12, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
It's been announced, just by being put here, you know. This is probably the most visited page onsite... TTEchidna 00:14, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
Yet I'm only here because it was in the Recent Changes. I don't visit here unless I see it in the recent changes or have a question, when I am just as likely to ask a different admin. The Dark Fiddler - Nos hablamos? 00:18, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
I feel so hated now... TTEchidna 00:21, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
Meh, I'm sure you'll get over it. The Dark Fiddler - Nos hablamos? 00:23, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
You know, I bet, if I edited my page four times, I'd get warned, despite the new limit. That could be a good test. The Dark Fiddler - Nos hablamos? 00:24, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
People, including me (hopefully not!), will keep on warning people for some time with 3 edits, but I think the 4 edits rule is a nice bonus. And BTW, your new year counter tells me that the new year is after -18 hours - you might want to take it off. UltimateSephiroth (about me · chat · edits) 00:26, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
Or just change it to reflect. TTEchidna 00:28, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

BTW, why are we only allowed 3 or 4 a day? --HoennMaster 08:30, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

Because in previous years people have edited their own pages more than the mainspace. It was locked for several months last year, and the limit is a compromise. — THE TROM — 08:34, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

Talk Pages

I noticed on many talk pages that you asked something that seems to be very interesting, yet not answered...has any of your questions been answered before? ht14 03:49, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

How specific.--RexRacer -talk 03:50, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
I always do that. Every time. TTEchidna 03:58, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
Well...have ANY of your questions been answered then? ht14 04:16, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
Sometimes. TTEchidna 05:13, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
That's good. ht14 05:14, 2 January 2009 (UTC)


OK! we still got a lot of template to delete, We got Template:p, Template:m, Template:a, Template:an and the list goes on, c'mon TTE get goin'.--Force Fire talk 07:37, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

As I said. Those are used for many things. Legendary trios and the literal ghost, how many pages need that to be a link template? And SSBB. For the love of crap, how many pages link THERE? Link templates are not "let's make a shortened name for a template so I don't have to type". They're for multiple things with few exceptions. {{p}} is used for 493 different linkables on nearly EVERY page on this wiki. It's an essential. TTEchidna 07:53, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

The Candidates for protection list is getting a little long.. as well as some lazy templates popping up there. There's a difference between {{Pokémon XD}} (Since a lot of pages linked to the redirect page) and template:soa tale which is just lazy.. Gywall Talk 13:50, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

Yes. The XD template is helpful slightly more because it isn't just the link. TTEchidna 19:57, 2 January 2009 (UTC)


What's the difference between {{User:TTEchidna}} and {{:User:TTEchidna}}? I used them both by accident, and both came out to be the same... ht14 16:27, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

...why are you calling my page as a template... Anyway, the colon before it is only a point if you're calling a main namespace page as a template versus calling a template. For example, {{:Main Page}} vs {{Main Page}}. Which, though it looks the same, is different (the {{Main Page}} template actually causes the appearance of the actual Main Page through transclusion).
So yeah. In essence, though, I always call non-template namespaces with the colon in front, just so I know. TTEchidna 19:55, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
I'm still lost...I was linking your user name, and I used {{ instead of [[... ht14 19:57, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
And thus called my page as a template. TTEchidna 19:59, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
Umm...still lost... ht14 20:01, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
Using curly brackets instead of square ones calls a page as a template, as long as it's not in the main namespace (that requires a colon). TTEchidna 20:03, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
{{ }} uses a page (by default in the Template namespace, unless otherwise specified) as a template, [[ ]] links to a page. {{User:TTEchidna}} would, when used on a page, include the whole content of the page User:TTEchidna as it was a template. Still lost? UltimateSephiroth (about me · chat · edits) 20:05, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
Well...somewhat question... See here: [1]... Care to explain what's going on there? ht14 20:14, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
I assume at one point BulbaBot was tasked with creating accounts when a user registered, but then stopped at a later date. I dunno why, maybe it was the software? TTEchidna 21:16, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
Weird... then how about this: [2] It's the same, but with some mixes... some created their own accounts while Bulba made some for others... ht14 21:20, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
I noticed that too. Zhen or one of the tech guys would know better than me... TTEchidna 21:20, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
You mean like MewBot? But "it" rarely goes on. As for Zhen, he doesn't usually go on anymore as well...who do you want me to refer to specifically? ht14 21:23, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
I believe that was BulbaBot copying over accounts from the forums, although it was ages ago...I'm not 100% sure. -- evkl (need to talk?) 23:10, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

Just a small thing to inform

I just thought that I'll inform you that I share the same IP (the 91.*.*.* one) with the user Toaums. This is just because of I don't want to get falsely banned for having two accounts; Toaums is my little brother. He has, though, not edited much. UltimateSephiroth (about me · chat · edits) 22:49, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

It's only if I find some odd reason to checkuser your IP. I have a few shared IPs... my sister and brother both have accounts. TTEchidna 03:34, 3 January 2009 (UTC)
You have family? You've never mentioned that before, I don't think. *Jioruji Derako used Shadow Claw on Gliscor!* -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 23:54, 4 January 2009 (UTC)
Where else would I live? TTEchidna 23:55, 4 January 2009 (UTC)
Family Members, I meant. You give off the air of an only child. (probably because you've never mentioned having siblings.) -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 23:57, 4 January 2009 (UTC)
I'm usually a loner anyway. TTEchidna 00:00, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
I see. *parting shot at Gliscor* -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 00:02, 5 January 2009 (UTC)


there's a way we can get Bulbabot (or another bot) to do tedious redirecting work for us. TFwiki's bot, Deceptitran, does it all the time. If I get its creator to help me, can you change bulbabot and get it to do that for us? --((Marton imos)) 08:47, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

If I knew how to program ol' botty, I'd've done that. TTEchidna 23:04, 3 January 2009 (UTC)
Ugh. Who can, aside from Zhen? --((Marton imos)) 23:17, 3 January 2009 (UTC)
I'll ask... Perhaps even learn how to myself. I know some C++, and I think Botty uses C#. TTEchidna 23:32, 3 January 2009 (UTC)
Oy. Derik says he wrote Deceptitran in PHP... I don't know entirely what that means, of course, but... the discussion is here. Once you find someone who can do it, I'll see if I can try to get this all working. --((Marton imos)) 23:36, 3 January 2009 (UTC)
Ah, PHP... another language I don't even know! TTEchidna 00:38, 4 January 2009 (UTC)
I've placed a request on the "requested bots and templates" thread on the forums, so we can take this there. Hopefully, we can get something done. --((Marton imos)) 02:50, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

Double-Edge and other recoil moves

A couple days ago I popped onto Bulbapedia and was looking around at the different types when I noticed that the moves Double-Edge, Brave Bird, Flare Blitz, and Wood Hammer all had 1/4 listed as their recoil damage. I went about correcting them to 1/3 because that is what I believe it to be (Personal experience and Nintendo Power guides) and a member posted on my Talk wall saying I should contact you about it. I've put up some stuff on the Double-Edge talk page as well about what I think it should be changed to and I was wondering if you could take a look at it. Fensti 18:29, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

Well, I've tested it myself, and you're absolutely correct. Just remember you don't need to put your name after the four tildes: they bring up your signature anyway. TTEchidna 23:04, 3 January 2009 (UTC)
It's no problem, just doing my job to make sure everything is right, and I'll keep that in mind in the future. Fensti 01:06, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

Side game alternate form templates

I'm making some templates to demonstrate the form differences in side games. Apparently there are none in Pinball R/S. Also, the jury is still out for some of the PMD2ers (Deoxys, Castform and Cherrim) and Deoxys in Trozei. So here are the ones that I've done though.

--MisterE13 03:27, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

Oh boy... sounds like fun. Well, I'll see what I can do. TTEchidna 03:49, 4 January 2009 (UTC)


Template talk:Catchentry4. Please? I'm just trying to find a legible color now. — THE TROM — 10:09, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

Oh fine. Just... make sure it gets reprotected. TTEchidna 10:11, 4 January 2009 (UTC)
Check Lake Verity and see if you can read it/like it. I'm offline now so feel free to protect or change the color to a more legible one. — THE TROM — 10:16, 4 January 2009 (UTC)
Looks okay to me. TTEchidna 10:18, 4 January 2009 (UTC)
Ooh, wait, brackets around the FR, LG, or E to match the ones above would be helpful, seeing as you've now locked it again. — THE TROM — 10:20, 4 January 2009 (UTC)
Done. Now, check out the version exclusive talk page. TTEchidna 10:23, 4 January 2009 (UTC)
Check it out yourself. I've already replied. :pTHE TROM — 10:24, 4 January 2009 (UTC)
Well since it was archived... I still say it's better going RGBY, since that's how everything else goes. Note on the footer thing that'd say "Green's Pokémon distribution is the same as the English Blue". TTEchidna 22:22, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

Change a user from none to abuse

Missingyes has ignored warnings to stop editing the userspace. I protected his userpage. Could you change his status from none to abuse? --ケンジガール 22:25, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

Done and done. Next time, though, could you just protect the person's page for, say, a week, so that we don't have to come back and unprotect it manually? TTEchidna 22:32, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

2 More Questions

  • You know what happened with Missingyes. How would this process work with admins who abuse privileges at userpages?
  • What's the difference between <!-- and <includeonly>? ht14
Well, depends on what you mean. If it's about me, specifically, I only edit userpages very often because I'm often doing a project I wanna keep outta the mainspace so far. If it's not regarding that, they'd likely get a talking to (as admins, they're a lot more accountable than regular joes off the street who come here just for userpages), and in extreme cases, may lose powah. And the difference between those tags are that includeonly works so that when a page is used as a template, the stuff between those tags appears, but does not appear on the template page. Noinclude is the reverse. The thing with the exclamation comments out whatever it is. TTEchidna 23:30, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

Minor edits

I think we should have some sort of policy about minor edits. I know some users who mark almost all of their edits as minor, while some other users (such as myself) tend to stick with this. Now, if new users see an edit marked as minor that adds a lot of bytes to a page, and sees one not marked as minor that adds a lot of bytes to a page, it could confuse them. Therefore, I think we should have an official policy about minor edits. What do you think? Chocolate (Chat with Me) 01:26, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

WHO CARES?--RexRacer -talk 01:27, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
Be careful, that violates this. But to answer you, I already said it: We don't wanna confuse new users. Chocolate (Chat with Me) 01:29, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
Rexracer is correct. Who really does care? This is not important, at all. minoring edits is a personal preference, not a policy, or else the minor all edits feature wouldn't be in every single users own preferences. You are just nit-picking at other people over such minimal, useless things that have nothing to do with anything. This has happened countless times again and again (expect a comment on your talk page over this.) Not everyone has to do exactly as you do. Some things... you got to just let go. Also, rexracer was using all caps for emphasis and not yelling. No problem done. MaverickNate 01:35, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
If it was personal preference, there wouldn't be anything about it on Wikipedia. Chocolate (Chat with Me) 01:37, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
The thing is, there isn't anything on wikipedia about it. It is all you. MaverickNate 01:38, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
Yes there is. Chocolate (Chat with Me) 01:39, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
Do note, that's a Help page, not an official policy there. -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 01:40, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

(resetting indent) Yes, and every follows it on Wikipedia. Chocolate (Chat with Me) 01:41, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

This isn't Wikipedia now is it? --PsychicRider 01:42, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
I never said it was. Chocolate (Chat with Me) 01:42, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
Wikipedia admins do not enforce that. And we haven't either, and you think you are all high and mighty to do something no one cares about. You are implying that it is, that this is wikipedia MaverickNate 01:44, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
Why does everyone act like they hate me? Chocolate (Chat with Me) 01:44, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
About 3.8/4 of my edits are minor edits. So why does it matter? --PsychicRider 01:45, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
Give me some examples. Chocolate (Chat with Me) 01:46, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
(Edit Conflict number five)
How about we hold back on this discussion until TTE actually gets a chance to read it? I can't foresee much discussion here beyond back-and-forth argument about Wikipedia's policies, which really doesn't have much to do with us.
I apologize if I'm acting like I hate you at all, Chocolate. Remember that this is the internet; it's very easy to take things out of context. I don't believe Maverick or Rex are expressing any hatred towards you, they merely disagree with your opinion. -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 01:47, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
Ok.--RexRacer -talk
The thing is. It does not matter. And we do not hate you. MaverickNate

(resetting indent) Mav: If you don't hate me, why do you act like you do? Chocolate (Chat with Me) 01:52, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

Geo: I wasn't referring to you anyway when I was asking why people were acting like they hated me. Chocolate (Chat with Me) 01:52, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

This was all to proove a point. You fixed every single problem that I have changed, otherwise... the nit-picking. Not everyone has to do the same exact orderly fashion you have to do, and you shouldn't complain to people about it. You think everything you do is right, and when someone does the same thing differently, or tries to modify what you do in any way, you yell and/or question them. This happens all the time, every single time. When evkl reverted you today, you questioned him. When Martonimos didn't put the archive description on Ash's Charizard's talk, you had to change it to what you do. You had to complain to Geo for the minor edit thing for days, and when you decided you were getting no where, you went to TTE. You have made up rules in order to stop people from reverting you (which failed), you became a nazi on the archives because SOMEONE WAS UPLOOADING A JPG ANIME SCREENSHOT!!!! HE MUST BE DEALT WITH!!!And even now, you've added my timestamp whenever I purposefully didn't put it on, and chjanged the colons I screwed up on purpose. Moral of the story? Not everyone has to do everything exactly as you have done. Let people do what they feel they should. Don't question everything everyone does that isn't exactly what you do, or is a revert of something that you have edited. These things you have nit-picked are not important and have no concern about anything. So lay off other peoples' cases, and let the cards fall as they may. Not everything has to be the same as you. MaverickNate 02:01, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

Guys, I'm gonna have to agree with RexRacer. Who cares? Minor edits, major edits, I don't click the button anyway. All it does is help hide stuff on RC if you click "Hide minor edits". And who does that? I check over everything. Only thing that'd be good for really is trying to hide vandalism. It's pointless to argue about. Seriously. Also, plz no nitpicking, that's my job. TTEchidna 02:05, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

Way to go, Nate. You just proved that your "truce" with me was fake. Chocolate (Chat with Me) 02:25, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

Name change request

Hi, can I request for my username to be changed to EspeonA? SpontaneousCombusken is a handful to type, and this will make most of my usernames consistent. And I wanted to make a fresh new start for 2009. :) - s.Combusken 02:52, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

You too? Well, I suppose, why not. Gimme a minute. TTEchidna 02:57, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

What was it to be changed to? TTEchidna 22:20, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
Well, that was strangely ironic Poli got it...--freezingCOLD (page, talk) 22:25, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
Well, he'll be getting the Archives and News accounts renamed in a second, after which he ought to leave a message on your talk to reunify them. TTEchidna 22:31, 5 January 2009 (UTC)


Is it possible to get my user name changed more than once during my time on Bulbapedia? Chocolate (Chat with Me) 22:22, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

Possible? Yes. Will I do it? Gimme a really, really good reason why I should after three months. TTEchidna 22:33, 5 January 2009 (UTC)


Can the main characters be moved-protected to sysop? I think it is within reason to do this so that some vandal doesn't come along and move them. Main characters, as well various other things need proper move protection. I can think of the following to be move-protected as well: Items, Poké balls, Pokémon disambiguation pages, and the game articles. --Bulbapedian - Talk 23:38, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

Perhaps. Kinda busy right now... um... anyone else wanna take care of this? TTEchidna 23:39, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
Certainly. I've already told Politoed666 about it. If you get free time, it is something you should get to. Thanks. --Bulbapedian - Talk 23:53, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
Okee then. TTEchidna 23:54, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

Really minor name change request

Before I go, I want to change my name to PH1RESTRIKE. The 3 makes "PH1R3" look too much like "Ph34r", and I don't want people thinking I have any relation to them. PH1R3STRIKE 20:34, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

Reminder to change username

Just to remind you to change my username to Satoshi, in case it's available. Pokemon lover 22:16, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

Are there any complex names already taken that have the name Satoshi on them? It's becuase I would like to be renamed as Satoshi Ketchum, then.- unsigned comment from Pokemon lover (talkcontribs)
Well, while that is a bit unoriginal, I'll be able to get to it later on... TTEchidna 22:47, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

Oh, that reminds me

You should probably change the needed article on the Main Page.--freezingCOLD (page, talk) 23:04, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

Done. TTEchidna 23:05, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

Castform spritebox

ht14 made me relaize that since Castform's alternate sprites are never actually released from Balls, they wouldn't have any animated sprites. So, could you please change the Emerald sprites from .gifs to .pngs, I've already created redirects to the Ruby/Sapphire ones on the Archives. In case you forgot, the template is Template:Sprite/3/4formes/1shiny.--MisterE13 16:01, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

Oy... damned Castform. TTEchidna 21:32, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

You're Lying About the Computers Crashing Thing…

…Right?Telme 04:39, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

In 2038? Nope. Check this out. TTEchidna 06:01, 8 January 2009 (UTC)


.."Diby" → "The Royal Bengal Tiger". Will you? Please? "Diby" sounds feminine and I'm not a female...--Diby 06:09, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

...erm. Why that... name. Anything... better? TTEchidna 06:13, 8 January 2009 (UTC)
My favorite animal and our national animal.--Diby 06:15, 8 January 2009 (UTC) anything, you know, that's not just that? I don't call myself Time Traveling Tachyglossus aculeatus for a reason. TTEchidna 06:27, 8 January 2009 (UTC)
Can't think of any other better name right now...and I'm desperate to change this name for the reason I provided...What is the problem with sticking with this name?--Diby 06:34, 8 January 2009 (UTC)
I dunno... it doesn't seem... creative. *shrug* But if you do wish... ask again in a couple months, though, you've been renamed already... TTEchidna 07:15, 8 January 2009 (UTC)
"Sher-e-Bengal" will be a better name. Anyway, I expected that "couple of months" thing. Can you rename it earlier? For example, if I do 800+ mainspace contributions in February?--Diby 12:21, 8 January 2009 (UTC)
If you get to the top five of TCOTM for this month, I will, and you can even cite this comment when you remind me. TTEchidna 23:27, 8 January 2009 (UTC)


Would you be able to show me how to get a timer (via wiki coding) that I can put on my user page or something, preferabley one that counts down seconds minutes and hours, please reply on my talk page, thanks.--MysteryHeff? TALK 10:53, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

It's mostly just special parser hooks, all working together... Just take the coding from my timer and begin screwing with it with the preview button. TTEchidna 23:24, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

Wanted Pages and Images

I was browsing the list of Wanted Pages to see if there was any I could kill, and noticed a lot of images. In each case, the issue is with the images being linked to on talk pages like [[:Image:000.png]] as opposed to [[a:Image:000.png]], which is how {{img}} deals with them. Mind going through and changing them so they drop off the list? I'd do it myself but most pages are protected anyway. Gywall Talk 15:19, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

Gimme the pages. TTEchidna 23:16, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

Username Change

Archaic told me you were the one to talk to about username changes. My friend is no longer able to use this account so I was wondering if I could simplify things and call it Zephy.Changes? That's is the name of my other accounts on everything and that way my computer only has to remember one username and password. Thank you.
