Why the hell did you use all those Japanese names in the summaries for AG102 and AG103? I hope you realise that MOST of the articles here are using English names. Ketsuban 02:22, 5 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Because the summaries I used to post the eps to pedia were done by Dogasu (mostly) and Murgatroyd, both of whom use the Japanese names in their summaries. I changed as much as I could, since Dogasu provided the dub names in his summary. And Ket, try being a little more tactful next time. I respond better to 'please' and 'thank you' and 'will you' than I do to the rantings of an angry teenager.- unsigned comment from Barb (talkcontribs) 04:00, 12 July 2005

Administrator Status

In order to keep our Administrator list currently up-to-date, this is a generic "are you there" message.

Please, either edit the List of administrators to reflect your status (Active, Hiatus, Inactive), or reply here when you get the chance.

If there is no response after two weeks from today, you will simply be assumed as "Inactive" and marked as such. -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 15:54, 4 February 2009 (UTC)

Revocation of Powers

Barb -

As you may have noticed, your administrative powers have been revoked. There was recently an executive decision made among several of Bulbapedia's top powers to purge the powers of inactive or semi-inactive administrators without announced hiatuses. You fall into the category of being either inactive or semi-inactive, and thus your powers have been revoked.

Several factors went into our reasoning. Mainly, though, we believe that there is only a certain amount of authority the administrative body as a whole can hold. Therefore, the more administrators we have, the more times that power has to be divided up. And the more times it's divided, the less authority each individual administrator can hold. Think of it as having a cake at a party. The more people that want a slice of cake, the smaller each cake slice is. We believe that the "cake pieces" should be bigger for active administrators and that inactive users shouldn't get any of the cake, so we decided to take back your piece of the cake, along with those of a host of other users.

So, don't be offended. It's more aimed toward giving the active sysops more power, not giving you less power, although it does have that side effect. As a whole, it will be good for the wiki. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me or any other members of the Editorial Board. Oh, and feel free to come back and start actively editing again! You may just get your powers back. Thanks. --ニョロトノ666 03:20, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
