  • Use wikicode and link templates when adding content to a page.
  • Use proper grammar and spelling, and read the manual of style.
  • You can't create a userpage until you've added to the encyclopedia. It's a privilege. See the userspace policy.
  • Use talk pages to resolve editing disputes. Don't "edit war," or constantly re-edit/undo the same thing on a page.
  • If you have a question about something, be proactive. Take a look at our FAQ. If you're still stuck, ask for help. The staff won't bite.

Edit Warring

Please stop re-adding the removed synopsis from BW108. It's considered edit warring, which is a blockable offense on Bulbapedia. Please do not edit war in the future. Thank you. --Pokemaster97 02:42, 10 January 2013 (UTC)

Hidden note

Please do not remove hidden notes from the trivia section, they are there to notify users what not to add. Thank you.--ForceFire 01:04, 29 March 2016 (UTC)

Edit warring 2

As above, please stop re-adding the things that are being removed on XY117. If you have a disagreement with another user, please try to settle it through discussion rather than by just silently redoing your edits. Thank you. Tiddlywinks (talk) 21:56, 31 May 2016 (UTC)

Talk pages

Please, never edit archived talk pages. And never edit in old, unrelated sections of a talk page. If you want to talk to another person on Bulbapedia, use their current talk page, and start a new section (you can easily use the "+" button at the top of the page for this).

XY117

I'm going to copy all this here just because there's not really a better way.

(For the record, the below comes from here.)

Sub: The Summary of XY117:

Hey Tiddlywinks, I don't think the usage of 'runagate' instead of 'renegade' matters much,or using that word 'jocund' is by any way misfit with the context.Jovial,jocund and cheerful all are synonyms,so they can be used without any restriction,and Wordsworth has used that phrase in 'The Daffodils',so it is not wrong. I also disagree with your views that the last line is erroneous-'leaving their newfound friend in an optimistic and benevolent world which it shouldn't fear living in'.

Would u please specify my mistakes there? Thanks

Both "runagate" and "jocund" are incredibly obscure/awkward words. ("Runagate" I would have initially said wasn't even a word, until I searched a dictionary and found an entry. "Jocund" on the other hand I do recognize, but still only barely.) This makes them inappropriate to use. That's why I either replaced or removed them.

It's worth noting that I haven't seen this episode. But that last line that you wrote seemed to me in part too pat and in part awkward. If I were to try to point to a particular problem, I'd say that you can't call the "world" "optimistic" or "benevolent"; beings in a world can be optimistic or benevolent, but not the "world". Also, there's plenty of evidence that the Pokemon world as a whole isn't "benevolent" anyway (perhaps a majority, but certainly not everything).

I will also say about the other things you again tried to add back, "caustic" usually relates to sarcasm, to speech, and Phantump can't exactly speak, so it's at best a very awkward word to try to ascribe to it; and "the stump Pokemon" is just a completely pointless abstraction, there's just no reason to not identify it more directly.

(And, just in case: please continue the conversation here.)

Hey Tiddlywinks:

The usage of the phrase,'an optimistic and benevolent world' is a metonymical use, which refers to the' inhabitants' of the world.Just like,in the sentence,'The White House said that there would be a rapid economical growth','The White House' refers to the politicians living in it,in the same way,'optimistic and benevolent world' refers to all the Pokemon living in harmony in that forest.And,since Team Rocket's Meowth was the only hostile pokemon in the episode,and each other wild pokemon greeted Phantump with warmth and affection,the authenticity of my statement stands. 'Caustic' means 'harsh and critical',as defined by Merriam-Webster.So,that is also applicable to someone's behavior,not only speeches. And if Wordsworth can write 'No poet can but be gay/In such a jocund company,then why can't I? and Charles Lamb has used the word 'runagate' which means it is applicable,if a tad outdated.

Regarding the last line, what really (apparently) happened in the episode is that Phantump was convinced to change its mind. In that respect, your phrasing focuses on the world, almost suggesting that the world has changed; when rather, it is really most appropriate to focus on Phantump's outlook changing.
Regarding caustic: being critical still pretty much requires speech. (It's at least a little difficult to express "criticism" (in a really meaningful way) without speaking.) (And FWIW, "harsh and critical" is attributed as the simple definition, whereas the "full definition" says, "marked by incisive sarcasm".)
Finally, it doesn't matter if a word was used in this or that book. I could find the most obscure word used in a relatively modern book, but that doesn't mean it would be appropriate to use that word. It's simply folly to use a word that's hard to recognize, especially if it can be written differently and/or more recognizably. Tiddlywinks (talk) 04:01, 1 June 2016 (UTC)

Formatting

I'd like to ask you to use more appropriate formatting when adding content here. The issues below only make things more difficult for any user who tries to edit what you wrote later on.

First and foremost, don't use unnecessary line breaks. If you intend one part of what you're writing to be a single paragraph, do not put any line breaks in the middle of that text. (For example, not this...

The episode starts with Malva reporting
directly from the league,chronicling up all the
events that have taken place in the conference
[...]

...But rather:

The episode starts with Malva reporting directly from the league,chronicling up all the events that have taken place in the conference [...]

And at the end of the paragraph, two line breaks will make sure they're actually displayed as separate paragraphs. You can see this if you use preview or just pay attention after you save... (And on a related note, rather than updating an episode's plot in several edits more or less in a row, it would really be appreciated if you just wrote up the whole plot and only saved once.)

Also: punctuation. Always place a space after pretty much any punctuation. (I can't think of any you shouldn't, but if nothing else, the most common problems in what you add are commas and periods without a space after.)

Thanks. Tiddlywinks (talk) 23:36, 8 July 2016 (UTC)

Tiddlywinks,

I am sorry 4 breaking the edits into several parts,since I am using an outdated mobile that gets haywire if long messages are typed,so pls pardon me 4 that.

We understand technical limitations. If you'll endeavor to address/remember whatever you can control of the above, that's fine. Thanks. =) Tiddlywinks (talk) 01:04, 9 July 2016 (UTC)
As a little further advice, I'd also like to suggest that phrases like "its opponent" aren't really a good choice when we can be more specific. The only reason it might be appropriate is if it were something like a situation where the heroes are fighting a whole group of the same Pokemon. Otherwise it's just confusing to go from having mentioned exactly who someone's been fighting with (like, Trevor sent out Ludicolo and Sawyer sent out Aegislash) to suddenly becoming coy about naming them (like Ludicolo's attack hit its opponent; when Ludicolo's attack hit Aegislash is definitely no worse and certainly less ambiguous—in short, don't make the reader think they have to think of a name when they already know it, or that there is no specific name when there is). For the most part, words like "latter" and "aforementioned" are the same. Tiddlywinks (talk) 17:25, 9 July 2016 (UTC)

You are still using the wrong format. Please use the correct, standard format when writing down the synopsis or don't do it at all. If it's due to technical limitations, then I'd advise you use something that can give you the ability to type out longer edits.--ForceFire 08:14, 24 July 2016 (UTC)
