Let's try not to flood it again, guys... Chocolate (Chat with Me) 23:35, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

*cough*

You have seven talk page archives. Why not increase the limit? You appear to not like archiving it, and 50kb isn't working so well, seeing as people often spam it. --RexRacer -talk 23:38, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

Good idea. I'll increase it. Chocolate (Chat with Me) 23:38, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
Do 100, its moderate without over doingDCM((Mock MeEdits)) 01:16, 27 January 2009 (UTC)
I've already changed it. Chocolate (Chat with Me) 01:25, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

Ahem

May I ask why you're reverting me? Is it because I you don't think I have permission?—BlazevoirTalk/Contribs 22:13, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

We're supposed to use link templates whenever possible. Chocolate (Chat with Me) 22:14, 27 January 2009 (UTC)
But some templates are just lazy. Although I probably should ask permission before continuing.—BlazevoirTalk/Contribs 22:16, 27 January 2009 (UTC)
I don't think that {{ci}} is lazy. Chocolate (Chat with Me) 22:19, 27 January 2009 (UTC)
How hard is it to type [[Lilycove City|Lilycove]]?—BlazevoirTalk/Contribs 22:23, 27 January 2009 (UTC)
Not too hard, but it still takes less time to type {{ci|Lilycove}}. Chocolate (Chat with Me) 22:23, 27 January 2009 (UTC)
Well, I asked TTE so I'll await his judgment.—BlazevoirTalk/Contribs 22:44, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

Let me tell you a little story

Once upon a time, there was a user on Bulbapedia who liked to sometimes make edits to just add spaces between lines for breathing room and nothing else. However, there was no difference at all in the article itself! Wouldn't you say it's a waste of time to just add spaces for his own convenience? eA 00:01, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

But it makes things easier to read in the edit box. Besides, Tesh does it too. Chocolate (Chat with Me) 00:01, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
yes it does make editing easier, however, you arent supposed to go out of your way to make these edits, its pointless. -- MAGNEDETH 00:04, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
Tesh spaces things out while making edits to articles, he doesnt make an edit just for the sake of making an edit. --RexRacer -talk 00:05, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
Also, changing normal links to the obsolete laziness templates is also not a good thing to be doing, especially whe we are axing a ton later. MaverickNate 00:06, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
If someone is doing something, they are doing it for a reason. Admins trump the MOS, because they talk on AIM with TTE, evkl and Archaic about things.--RexRacer -talk 00:07, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
Rex: No, Tesh has made edits just to space out text too.
Mav: Which templates are you referring to? Chocolate (Chat with Me) 00:08, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
The many we are getting rid of later. Can't tell which ones though. But, as a teaser, {{g}} will most likely no longer exist. MaverickNate 00:10, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
Why not? Chocolate (Chat with Me) 00:11, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
Probably because it doesn't take long to type out [[Pokémon. I'm guessing {{pkmn}} is a bit different as it requires you to type out [[Pokémon {{1}}| instead. eA 00:13, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
But some people don't know how to generate the é. Chocolate (Chat with Me) 00:14, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
That is why not only "é" is on the character pallette, but "Poké" as well. MaverickNate 00:15, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

Oh, yeah. I forgot about the character pallette. Chocolate (Chat with Me) 00:16, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

small thing

Keep the inter-wiki links one space away from the categories. Don't remove that space, it is supposed to be there. MaverickNate 03:16, 31 January 2009 (UTC)

I think it looks better without the space, but okay. I'll remember. Chocolate (Chat with Me) 03:17, 31 January 2009 (UTC)
