Need To Create Page

I have information regarding this page, but I don't appear to have the rights to create it. Halp? --GuyPerfect (talk) 17:20, 8 April 2013 (UTC)

To create pages you need to be autoconfirmed, which is achieved by performing a certain number of edits. The number of edits required is unknown. Lady Ariel 21:28, 8 April 2013 (UTC)
I'm sure I'll reach that number while working on this page. Could someone start it for me? (-: --GuyPerfect (talk) 19:59, 9 April 2013 (UTC)
Until you are able to create pages, it would be best if you worked on the page in the Sandbox. Lady Ariel 21:40, 9 April 2013 (UTC)

Split

The character encoding is not a unique feature of the save data structure. It is used by basically any string in the ROM. While no current data structure page for Gen I uses it, I'm sure there are data structures which could be given articles which would use the character encoding. The character encoding simply does not belong in a section here on the save data structure page. Tiddlywinks (talk) 03:51, 1 April 2014 (UTC)

I think the issue with this split is that it is not significant enough to have its own page. That's just my opinion though. --Spriteit (talk) 13:59, 25 April 2014 (UTC)
I think the fact that it doesn't belong on this page is a much more significant issue. As someone who has previously searched this site for this information (and couldn't find it), this isn't the page I would've expected it to be on. While I agree that it'd be pointless to have a page for each generation, we should have one page that includes them all, and talks about the similarities and differences between eacher generation's character encoding.
