Talk:April Fools' Day 2007

From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.

Hey, guys? Did it ever occur to you that the massive dump of information on Serebii's page might be fake, too? Or at least that it might be a good idea to wait a day and find out BEFORE moving everything to new names? Some of the names have more than ten characters, which I believe is still the limit... I'm really, really frustrated by this. You realize this is gonna take forever to clean up if it turns out to be a hoax (which, honestly, I'm placing my chips down on)? --Pie ~ 21:42, 1 April 2007 (UTC)

Pictures

I've done some HQ pics of the hoaxes on Legendary Pokemon, Pokemopolis and Pokecharms if ya all want it --Serebii 21:48, 1 April 2007 (UTC)

Websites that "shut down". Good choices. XP --Pie ~ 21:55, 1 April 2007 (UTC)

I don't think that Serebii would do that. I mean . . all the names fit and Serebii would lose all credibility if they did that. I don't think it is, but I woun't change anymore names until tomorrow. But, this is a good point. Darkphantom 21:49, 1 April 2007 (UTC)

Again, some of the names are over the 10 character limit. And this is mostly a way of venting frustration. The damage is done - might as well leave it until this stupid day is over. --Pie ~ 21:55, 1 April 2007 (UTC)
Who is to say that the limits haven't changed in these games. Don't be so cynical Pie --Serebii 22:00, 1 April 2007 (UTC)
I'm not being cynical, I'm being realistic. You're probably laughing your butt off over there because the people at the Bulbapedia didn't have the foresight to wait a day and this will take ages to clean up. --Pie ~ 22:04, 1 April 2007 (UTC)
No, because the joke was on those who believed it to be fake. --Serebii 22:05, 1 April 2007 (UTC)
Sure it was. Because that's not the most obvious cover ever for an April Fool's joke. --Pie ~ 22:11, 1 April 2007 (UTC)
Believe what you want, but I expect an apology when it turns out true --Serebii 22:17, 1 April 2007 (UTC)
And I'll expect nothing when it turns out to be false. Because I'll be too busy cleaning up this mess and I doubt you care enough about the Bulbapedia to help. --Pie ~ 22:20, 1 April 2007 (UTC)
I'll concede that I was wrong and frustrated. But... don't hold your breath for an apology. Even you can't deny that it was stupid of the Bulbapedia contributors to jump into action updating, and the simplest, wisest action would be to wait a day to find out.
Also, I must note that I find some of these names just plain absurd sounding. PUSA has been really disappointing me lately. --Pie ~ 13:01, 2 April 2007 (UTC)

Well... anyway we still haven't US names for Jun and Foento City... - Taylor 12:52, 2 April 2007 (UTC)

Please everyone, stop arguing. We can always change the articles back if it was a joke. Carnivine 13:14, 2 April 2007
