Realize, everyone: I'm not the sole admin here, nor am I the head of all things. I know you all seriously love to talk to me, but guys, I can't always be here, and it's hard to edit when I'm downtown in the Loop (because I lack a mouse there on the Lappy so as to carry less). Anyway! Contact the others. Ask Zhen Lin about things. He's in charge of it all, not me, and I'm glad for that; I'd've gone out of my mind by now.

So, in closing, don't make me have to clean this thing up before New Year's. PLEASE? TTEchidna

Oh, and if something is really, really urgent (like that latest vandal) IM me. I am seriously almost always on when I'm not in class. TTEchidna 09:19, 4 November 2007 (UTC)



I'm informing you because yer the only admin I know besides PAK Man...We've got another poser...File:Ani475MS.gif Agent #448 DP | EFile:Ani282MS.gif 08:44, 4 November 2007 (UTC)

He hasn't vandalised yet, but I'm guessing it's bad to pose as another User...File:Ani475MS.gif Agent #448 DP | EFile:Ani282MS.gif 08:47, 4 November 2007 (UTC)
Dammit, already? The guy talks about you and I having no lives (it's more like I'm gonna sleep in tomorrow anyway). Ah well, I got him before he could. TTEchidna 08:48, 4 November 2007 (UTC)

Teddiursa/Ursaring and Phanpy/Donphan in Japanese Gold and Silver

Contrary to what you seem to think, these two families were indeed reversed in the translation of Gold and Silver to English, as far as availability between Gold and Silver is concerned. It is one of the major changes from the Japanese versions, often brought up along with the fact that several sprites were modified, including but not limited to that of Jynx.

As proof, refer to Teddiursa and Phanpy's location pages on the Japanese Pokepale web site. Notice that the Japanese word for Gold, 金, is completely absent from Teddiursa's page; the Japanese word for Silver, 銀, appears but one time on Phanpy's page to indicate a special download promotion for all three versions. This means that unlike in the non-Japanese versions, it is the Teddiursa family that is missing from Gold, whereas the Phanpy family is excluded from Silver.

In the future, please do not assume that someone is wrong based on your "intuition" alone. Either conduct minimal research on the subject at hand to determine the answer, or contact the person who inserted the questionable piece of data and bring your doubts to his or her attention. Unown Lord 10:09, 5 November 2007 (UTC)

All right, all right, sorry. I was just confused by it, it didn't make sense to me at the time; I was concentrating on like five things at once then. TTEchidna 21:42, 5 November 2007 (UTC)


Why won't my Wi-Fi connection work for Pearl? It works on the DS Browser. Whenever I try to connect, I get the error message:

Unable to connect to the Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector.
Confirm connection settings in the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection setup.

Have you only used your Pearl version on one DS? Switching the DS seems to mess things up. User:Gazco/sig 19:41, 11 November 2007

Wanted articles

I have started a new "hobby" of creating some of Bulbapedia's Wanted pages. In the last 10 minutes I have reated stubs for the articles, Keiji Kinebuchi and Wobbuffet Village. My current aim is to help give Bulbapedia the final push to 7, 000 articles. Espeon360File:Ani196MS.gif (Just thought I'd mention) ^.^

Well, you certainly did it. 7,009 as I see. TTEchidna 05:10, 7 November 2007 (UTC)

cough. I made the 7,005 article --70pxFile:Spr 3e 132.gifTheryguy512 Trozeiani025.gif 20:16, 11 November 2007 (UTC)

Cool, cool. Doesn't really matter in the long run who makes Article #IMPORTANT NUMBER, it matters in the long run if you make an important article. *cough**cough* TTEchidna 00:41, 12 November 2007 (UTC)

User Boxes

Hmmm, whats the code for all of these userboxes?Samrulz123File:Ani151MS.gif 03:54, 7 November 2007 (UTC)'s easy. Anything in the template namespace (those pages that start with "Template:") can be added to any page by way of curly brackets with the base name of the page (without the "Template:" part). Template:User Mudkip gets added with {{User Mudkip}}.
And anything not in the template namespace can be added by putting a colon before the title. You could add my Seaking template to your page using {{:User:TTEchidna/Seaking}}. TTEchidna 05:10, 7 November 2007 (UTC)

And do we have to do anything to get it over the right hand side?Samrulz123File:Ani151MS.gif 05:28, 7 November 2007 (UTC)

<div class="userbox" style="width: 230pt;"> at the top, </div> at the bottom. All the rest in between. TTEchidna 05:30, 7 November 2007 (UTC)


Can you please ban User:Gandavien? He deleted everything from Ash's Pikachu. --File:Spr 3e 115.gifTheryguy512File:Spr 3e 202.gifFile:Spr 3e 327.gif 12:49, 8 November 2007 (UTC)

Hey, I know this is irrevalent, but do you like my new sig? It's quite long though.172.pngFile:Spr 4d 025 s.png026.pngSonic Pikachu Trozeiani025.gif151.png000.png 19:51, 9 November 2007 (UTC)

I agree. Any way you could use the MSes or AniMSes for the Pokémon? (172025026151000/172025026151000) Same goes for you, Ryguy. Or maybe shrink the ones you have? You just need to put "|30px" between the file extension and the end brackets: 172.png30px026.pngSonic Pikachu Trozeiani025.gif151.png000.png 30pxTheryguy51230px30px

If you could, it's be great. TTEchidna 23:41, 9 November 2007 (UTC)

Is this sig better?: --70pxFile:Spr 3e 132.gifTheryguy512 Trozeiani025.gif 23:37, 18 November 2007 (UTC)

Well, it still has the big sprites... eh. TTEchidna 01:03, 19 November 2007 (UTC)

About signing Sarah Natochenny page.

I'm sorry about that. I didn't realize that I did it. Sometimes I get confused between regular and talk pages. --ケンジガール 22:50, 10 November 2007 (UTC)

It's fine, it's fine. Believe me, I sometimes almost do it. TTEchidna 22:52, 10 November 2007 (UTC)


Warpy needs a reprimand. I've been reverting his spam edits, and it's getting old. He apparently doesn't know proper grammar, punctuation, and capitalization. Can you ask him to read the Manual of Style and use decent language skills? -30pxニョロトノ66630px

Ack. That's a mess. I've done so. TTEchidna 05:01, 11 November 2007 (UTC)


English grammar - also read, know, and love. Seriously, man, use correct grammar, spelling, and punctuation. We're trying to look professional!

^That is not professional, that is childish and rude. its a wonder anything is on bulbapedia if you do this at every little thing. Please do not talk to me again.

ticked off, warpy

Believe me, if you had to deal with as many people who ignore common conventions such as this, you'd be the same way. Of course, I could be worse. I could highlight every grammar error in your comment. Thing is, I don't care if it's a typo. I don't care if you're too lazy to care about proper capitalization, use of homophones, and the like. I could let Bulbapedia look unprofessional, or I could yell at those that would. It's a manner of style, and even if I have to drill into everyone's head that ITS AND IT'S ARE NOT INTERCHANGEABLE, I will.
Additionally, don't ask me how I type with boxing gloves on. A-hem. Preeow.

Im sorry It's (i hope thats the right it's when you start nit picking) just pretty annoying when people come up, out of the blue, and start ranting about I dont know what. How are you supposed to react to that.It also does almost nothing without examples. now for the reason i came back to this page "You live there, great. Doesn't mean that it's not the same elsewhere."

Actually its NOT the same elsewhere. Because I apparantly can't type english perhaps some EXAMPLES will help.


else where

I re-did that paragraph no one makes that mistake again. In hindsight (and bit of searching due to lack of examples) I see what you mean and I will TRY to write to the "best possible level of literary style". warpy

Hmmm... Well, realize, I know next to nothing on the TFG. More often than not, though, things are the same across at the very least the English-speaking countries. The TCG had the same artwork for the Base Set packs in Germany. And I figured that those may have been different things, like the decks and packs. Oh well. Everything'll be set right eventually. TTEchidna 07:47, 12 November 2007 (UTC)

^Australia was a test area for the TFG so there are a few differences in packaging etc.

Hmm... Wonder why they did that. TTEchidna 07:59, 12 November 2007 (UTC)

Bee-pee link template

Looking for an easy way to link to the Manual of Style, I created this template. Apparently, something went horribly wrong, and the damn thing doesn't work. A word of advice? -30pxニョロトノ66630px

Yeah. Use Template:Bp. --Shiningpikablu252 02:51, 14 November 2007 (UTC)
Already redirected. BP redirects to bp. Sooooo... link away! TTEchidna 02:54, 14 November 2007 (UTC)
Hm. I feel a little odd for not knowing that... -30pxニョロトノ66630px
Shortlinks is there so everyone can see them all. TTEchidna 03:51, 14 November 2007 (UTC)


I'm really trying to do Project TCGDex a favor here by uploading all the needed images, but quite a few of them are fairly hard to come by. Just to put something in there, I've obtained a number of tiny pictures and HUGE pictures and created this template to compensate. Should I only add normal pictures and delete the notice, or go on doing what I've been doing? -30pxニョロトノ66630px

Well, of course we want to get a good picture ASAP, but a bad one's better than nothing... at least you have the template, of course. TTEchidna 02:40, 14 November 2007 (UTC)

A favor?

I'm still relatively new here and, in addition to helping Project TCGDex with their picture problem, I'm trying to make myself a comfortable user space. For my main page, I had hoped you would make me a subpage list, with sprites, like you have. If you would like any favors in return, just ask! I'd like it to link to all these: My Sandbox, Shining Pikablu252's Picture List, Decks Template, TCGPage, and Thanksgiving, with appropriate sprites. If I have anything else under my userspace that I need, I can do it myself later after I see how you've done it. -30pxニョロトノ66630px


This user is messing all the pages he edit or create and I'm doing my best to cleanup them. See Water Club, Psychic Club and Venusaur (Secret Wonders 20)'s history pages. I think he should be warned or banned. -- 32pxNetto-kun32px 14:04, 15 November 2007 (UTC)

Ay, jeez. That's insane... But... my job seems to have been done for me. TTEchidna 04:39, 16 November 2007 (UTC)

Upload picture

Could you please upload a picture that i want to put on Wobbuffet Village? It is here: link It is in the top right corner (under "PICTURE") below the SPP advert and it is of Ash, Misty and Brock walking through Wobbuffet Village

*cough* First of all, please sign your talk page contribs. Second of all, I'll take care of it right now, so TTE doesn't have to. If you need anything else minor like that, you can always ask somebody else. Like me. Admins aren't the only ones that know how to upload, you know, and TTE's not the only admin. -30pxニョロトノ66630px

Bulbasaur Featured article

I saw some mention of something like vandalism of Bulbasaur's featured article on Wikipedia. What was that all about? User:Reaper0fAnguish/Sig 04:24, 20 November 2007 (UTC)

New Project

I just made a new Bulbapedia Project! Bulbapedia:Project CharacterDex. It is called Project CharacterDex and covers all articles about Game-exclusive (articleworthy) characters from all generations. If you find anything on it that needs improving, please tell me as I really want to go somewhere with this. Join the project if you like! User:Espeon360/sig .::. 17:25, 20 November 2007 (UTC)

User: Tina The Kirlia

This before-good member is now a spambot. I mean, looka at his/hers contributions page! The WHOLE FIRST PAGE is FILLED with thing like "List of all Special Energy cards moved to Suck my cock, PAK Man!", "The Best At Being The Worst moved to First I did HRWIKI. Than I stopped for a couple years and did Bulbapedia. Next stop, Memory Alpha!" and "The Great Bulbapedia Turkey Shoot moved to Jvifhigufhbsdjgfhjfvfxxzcv". - unsigned comment from Pokémon Lover King Mario (talkcontribs) on 02:45, 21 November 2007

Excuse me. But I didn't do that. My username has no spaces in it, and my contributions are clean. 281Tinaδ282 18:47, 20 November 2007 (UTC)
Oy, jeez... the fun of that vandal. PLKM, next time make sure you're looking at the right person. This vandal's tricky; for example, check out the difference between this user and the vandal that took his name. The address bar will help you to determine the difference, for example, check the difference in address between User:TTEchidna and User:ТTEchidna. Don't they look the same? TTEchidna 03:59, 21 November 2007 (UTC)

Yeah, it's an ASCII Confederate flag, to go with his racist assholery. Which I don't get. These jackasses go around screaming "the South will rise again" as if the South's only glory depended on the enslavement of an entire group of people. What kind of glory is that when it doesn't even depend on those who want the glory? Ah well, these are the same people who advocate "intelligent design"... what kind of design could be intelligent and create this species? TTEchidna 22:20, 21 November 2007 (UTC)

I've got no problem with you having a theme-based team, it's just the Psycho name. Psycho = my Pokémon with Psychic/Psycho Boost/Psycho Cut (whichever's best), Recover/Softboiled/Wish/Synthesis/Morning Sun/Moonlight/Roost, and two other moves that kick ass. The example was Psycho, then came the rest. BUT they're mine and mine alone. No dupli-psychos. Psycho is a Mewtwo with the OT of Ash that I caught in Red with a Great Ball; even the Psycho with OT Josh from FireRed (yet in a Great Ball) isn't the real Psycho... he's more real, though.

"Poké Ball," "Pokeball," "pokeball," "Pokéball," "pokéball," or "Poké ball?"

Which is correct? I've been going around changing page text to Poké Ball since that is the official article title (see Poké Ball), but I want to know if I should continue. -30pxニョロトノ66630px

Shiny Noctowl

He's going off and censoring stuff on general talk pages without permission from the content's creators for no apparent reason despite the presence of a tag that warns of potentially offensive content. He's citing decency, but censoring comments from Ninja666, Dark0805, Optimus35, and myself without their permission is obviously not showing decency. I've already called up Fabu-Vinny and PAK Man, but nothing's working. Can something be done to stop this? --Shiningpikablu252 16:50, 1 December 2007 (UTC)

Profanity="Abusive, vulgar, or irreverent language." Therefore it shouldn't be allowed on Bulbapedia. 164sMS.pngShiny?! 17:16, 1 December 2007 (UTC)
On general encyclopedic pages, yes. Talk pages, on the other hand, aren't bound to the manual of style or the notability requirements. --Shiningpikablu252 17:19, 1 December 2007 (UTC)
I do agree there, Shiny. The whole censorship thing and keeping the pages clean pretty much applies only to the actual non-talk pages. You can swear as much as you fucking want on talk pages, just so long as you don't yell at other people and call them assholes and shit. Dammit, though, don't pepper your sentences with it: swear only when you're fucking making a goddamned point. You can't go and say on Caterpie's page that it's the shittiest Pokémon ever (that'd be wrong anyway, Sunkern's worse), or on Ash's page and say he's a complete dumbass. You can, however, bring up on the talk page something about Ash being a moron who can't hold on to a single damn Pokémon in Kanto all you want. I mean, after all, sure Pokémon games are rated "E for Everyone", but really, how many kids who are older than 10 haven't heard a swear word from their peers or parents? Swearing's fine in my book, so long as the swearing in question isn't directed at someone. That's when it becomes the anger-driven kind... which I myself need to cut back on at times. Eheh. User:TTEchidna/sig 22:44, 1 December 2007 (UTC)

User:Shiny Noctowl...

...has been banned for 1 week for edit wars and being disruptive. I didn't think he was that sort of person! User:Espeon360/sig. 17:26, 1 December 2007 (UTC)

*pokes above posts and Recent Changes* That about sums it up. OH NO DAMN IS A SWEAR. Holy crap! User:TinaTheKirlia/Sig 17:27, 1 December 2007 (UTC)
Ah, ok...User:Espeon360/sig. 17:31, 1 December 2007 (UTC)
If the rampant censorship had been on encyclopedic pages, such as Ash Ketchum or Shipping:PokéShipping, there would have been no edit war, since profanity is frowned upon on encyclopedic pages. However, talk pages are not bound to the same restrictions encyclopedic pages are. And, quite honestly, most of what Shiny Noctowl was censoring was quite mild. Let's review, shall we:
Talk:The Great Bulbapedia Turkey Shoot: Two D4s and an H4. PA tag present. Honestly, why was my PA tag even on that page?
Talk:Omanyte (Pokémon): One A3. PA tag present. How does that harm anyone?
Talk:Dragon trio: One S4. PA tag present. PG-13 material at harshest, and I've seen a PG get away with more than that!
Talk:Beginning Pokémon (Card GB 2): Two S4s, one F4, and one D4. PA tag present. The harshest out of all of them, but the PA tag is adequate warning. Besides, I've heard of some PG-13s get away with worse...
Simply put, Fabu-Vinny was right when he said Shiny Noctowl had no right to simply censor the pages. The right call was made.
Besides, Shiny Noctowl's been known to instigate edit wars in the past. Misty ended up under protection temporarily due to one such occurence. This block doesn't surprise me in the least. --Shiningpikablu252 17:48, 1 December 2007 (UTC)

Ok, about the EP240 Major events edit...

Ok, a while back, I inserted the relvalation as to why Misty loves water pokemon so much in the Important events section of "Some Like It Hot". Then, some days later, you moved it to the trivia section of that same page. what I am asking is why doesn't it merit the Important events section?

I mean, you seemed to allow things such as "Meowth learns how to talk" as an important event in the episode "Go West, Young Meowth", so why isn't the reason why Misty has that extremeist love for water pokemon enough for the Important events section of EP240?


Well, first off, you need to spell Pokémon right, meaning with a capital P and an accented é, as well as capitalize type names. Proper nouns need to be capitalized. Additionally, the way you worded it was more fitting in the trivia section; look at other episodes, they don't say "IN THIS EPISODE blah blah blah". Besides, that's not as much an event as it is an opinion finally expressed by a main character of 239 previous episodes. Plus, look at the edit history of EP070: I never have edited that page, and it says that in the episode that Meowth recalls how he learned to talk, not that he actually DOES it.
Also, standard style for the episodes is to put Template:Code, not Template:Code. And... please spell better. Firefox has an automatic spell-checker, you might wanna check that out. User:TTEchidna/sig 22:48, 7 December 2007 (UTC)

Nope. Castform's form changes in battle only, so there's no minisprites of its other forms. Just like if you used Conversion or your Kecleon got hit by a Dark-type move, on the status screens they still appear as their basic type. Ditto does the same, I think, but it's been forever since I used it. User:TTEchidna/sig 17:31, 9 December 2007 (UTC)

Thankyou very much.File:Ani471MS.gifPokemaniac102 17:36, 9 December 2007 (UTC)

New attacks

I am suggesting New Pokémon attacks for future generations. If you want to look at my attack ideas, view my user page in the section "New Pokémon attacks". Let me know if you like my ideas!



A user named User:Pipluparan just edited Legendary Pokémon putting a comment about them having sex. He then took it off, probaly thinking that he won't get caught. He also created a page called Final Maze and then blanked it. I think that he should be banned. --70pxFile:Spr 3e 132.gifTheryguy512 Trozeiani025.gif 20:39, 9 December 2007 (UTC)

Hehe...a question: How the heck do you change the font? User:Optimus35/sig 06:40, 10 December 2007 (UTC), how do you mean? User:TTEchidna/sig 06:43, 10 December 2007 (UTC)

Like Wingdings or Vivaldi and stuff like that...User:Optimus35/sig 06:48, 10 December 2007 (UTC)

User:Optimus35/sig 09:53, 12 December 2007 (UTC)


I'm just notifing you about two users:

  1. User:Cassius335. He wrote It is also possibly titled Giratina and the Icy Sky's Bouquet, but no-one on here can agree on the translation., calling it just humor and basicallly offending us. He's been worned before, too.
  1. User:Cerberus. This user once put on Paul's page that he was a Jirk, and doesn't use correct grammar. Example: tosted instead of tossed.

They're not doing anything bad really, but we should keep an eye out. Both users have been warned before.......--70pxFile:Spr 3e 132.gifTheryguy512 Trozeiani025.gif 20:58, 10 December 2007 (UTC)

Oh how fun... sigh. Well, I've told them. I suppose Cassius gets his "being funny" from the state of modern-day media, where no one can report the news without trying to make everyone feel sorry for something, whether it be some stupid bill or some stupid war. User:TTEchidna/sig 21:22, 10 December 2007 (UTC)

Guess what! Another Protection Request!

Yea, I know you already protected the Movie 11 page from being moved, but me and a few other users think that it should be protected from being edited. Many people are diagreeing if we should put (Icy) in or not, so until it is settled, it should probaly be proteceted. --70pxFile:Spr 3e 132.gifTheryguy512 Trozeiani025.gif 22:49, 10 December 2007 (UTC)

I agree. This is insane. It's JUST a movie title that's not gonna be released for a while. A long while. In fact, I'd debate on protecting it until July 19 if I didn't care about updates being released between now and then. User:TTEchidna/sig 23:40, 10 December 2007 (UTC)

What do you think of this page? See my comments on the talk page there. -30pxニョロトノ66630px

I know what Tina's talking about with the typos, I sometimes screw up my alt+130ing, ending up with Pokmon or stuff, but I dunno if we really need a redirect. It's not hurting much, though. User:TTEchidna/sig 03:47, 11 December 2007 (UTC)
That's fine. You're right, it's not hurting anything. Just to be fair, though, we'll need to have tons of other redirects, too. Like "Pokmon" redirecting to "Pokémon." I'll take care of that one now and the other ones later, if I have your okay. -30pxニョロトノ66630px
Seems good to me. User:TTEchidna/sig 03:13, 12 December 2007 (UTC)
In that case, I'll redirect to every article with "Pokémon" in the title, starting as soon as I finish fixing e-acutes. -30pxニョロトノ66630px
Cool, cool. User:TTEchidna/sig 03:36, 12 December 2007 (UTC)

That gyrados fellow blanked out your page. What kind of asshole is he? User:Optimus35/sig 08:11, 12 December 2007 (UTC)

No idea. He created a crappy page on the Magma Ball that had absolutely nothing to do with ANYTHING, so I delete it and tell him to go read the MOS. He decides, of course, that I'm some sort of nutjob who has no idea what he's talking about and how dare I use my authority, so he starts blanking sections of my page. Banzor'd. User:TTEchidna/sig 20:35, 12 December 2007 (UTC)

Would you please make sure I don't butcher any of these freaking redirects? I seem to be having some capitalization troubles. -30pxニョロトノ66630px

Hmmm. Well, you could just hit Ctrl, Shift, and P to preview before saving. User:TTEchidna/sig 05:53, 15 December 2007 (UTC)


I recently introduced him to Bulbapedia and he is my friend from school. He is quite timid so could you all please treat him kindly? Thanks User:Espeon360/sigEspeon360 18:28, 12 December 2007 (UTC)

So long as you force him to read the manual of style, sure. User:TTEchidna/sig 20:32, 12 December 2007 (UTC)

Sorry to bother you, TTE, but this guy is saying lies about the voice actors and the gender of some Pokémon in the anime, like May's Munchlax, Brock's Sudowoodo, and then so. Can you please block he? -32pxうずまき ハルカSpr RS May.png 15:29, 13 December 2007 (UTC)

Well, I can't exactly block him for talk page comments. User:TTEchidna/sig 19:34, 13 December 2007 (UTC)

Another.......Protection Request........

First: Proof that Aipom is going to evolve. With that source, some users and I agree that Dawn's Aipom, and the recently made Dawn's Ambipom which directs to Aipom's page, should be protected until the episode airs in Japan. This would be greatly apprectiated. --70pxFile:Spr 3e 132.gifTheryguy512 Trozeiani025.gif 23:30, 13 December 2007 (UTC)

Uh, if we protect the redirect, that'll give the redirect enough of an edit history that we can't move Dawn's Aipom over it should the need to move it happen. --Shiningpikablu252 23:32, 13 December 2007 (UTC)
While we're at it, we might want to protect DP060 as well. That page being edited with the evolution speculation as a for-sure thing is already starting to happen, and it might not stop...--Shiningpikablu252 23:32, 13 December 2007 (UTC)
Oh, then maybe the Dawn's Ambipom shouldn't be protected...... --70pxFile:Spr 3e 132.gifTheryguy512 Trozeiani025.gif 23:35, 13 December 2007 (UTC)
I'm protecting Dawn's Aipom and baleeting Dawn's Ambipom. No redirect is needed, when it happens, we will move it. User:TTEchidna/sig 23:39, 13 December 2007 (UTC)

While you're at it, PLEASE protect DP060!!! --70pxFile:Spr 3e 132.gifTheryguy512 Trozeiani025.gif 23:42, 13 December 2007 (UTC)

Sure thing. Man. I'm thinking that protecting every new episode until it airs is good. User:TTEchidna/sig 23:45, 13 December 2007 (UTC)

Ph34r is gr34t/Ph34r is gr34t2

Uh, soz guys that was NOT me! I was asleep at the time. my mate did it all. Just so you all know;

  • he is not the original ph34r
  • he is quit mostly, but he can get a bit psychotic when bored
  • and, dont worry Tina, he doesn't know you in real life
  • he was just bored and suffering from mild depression.

I apologise on his behalf. What he did was reckless. As for the "Sockpuppet" he created and did most of his work on my computer at a sleepover. He is still my friend but he feels guilty about what he did after I fully explained to him the consequences of his actions.

A just made another Project (Project Shadow). It covers Pokémon in shadow form, complete with pictures and comparisons to main games. I know your first reaction will be thinking, 'This will be a useless Project' but I think with time, it will give birth to a lot of useful articles. Isn't that what Bulbapedia wants? Also, I havent made an infobox or notice yet, as I am not very good with that side of things... User:Espeon360/sig-- 19:45, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

Hmmm... I dunno. I think it'd be best to compare shadow versions of each Pokémon species on the species page, leaving only Shadow Lugia with its own page due to it being a plot point and so vastly different from the other Shadow Pokémon.
Also, where's that damn fourth Chaos Emerald? User:TTEchidna/sig 19:51, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

Project Purge

Okay, I know you're gonna groan, but come on.

Project Purge is a way, hmm, let's say it will make Admins beat Bulbabot quicker.

From the Project Purge talk page, I wrote:

Hey, chillax, man. It's just a place where eveything can be pulled together, and people can alert here... Admins can check here... Admins can get rid of things faster. It's all in good favor.

If it really doesn't make sense, well, I'm not gonna delete it, and I hope you don't, but I still believe in it. I hope at least one other person on this page thinks so.
