Hey, can you check something out for me(sorry if I messed up ur talk page or anything)

on the talkpage of DP145, about English title reference, have you ever heard that phrase before?--Midnight Blue 03:29, 29 January 2010 (UTC)

I'll go check it out (and no worries, you didn't mess it up). CuboneKing 23:41, 29 January 2010 (UTC)

Masstake

It was a mastake its OK. If you want to muss up my bage no problam Random Chaos Was here 01:11, 30 January 2010 (UTC)

Oh, OK. I had no clue it was a mistake, I thought it might be intentional vandalism. CuboneKing 01:20, 30 January 2010 (UTC)

Well see my discussion for the apology. It's there. Random Chaos Was here 03:42, 30 January 2010 (UTC)

I saw it. CuboneKing 04:42, 30 January 2010 (UTC)

template

for the redirect you're fixing now, use {{mdc}} instead. For example, {{mdc|Wigglytuff|2}} will put Wigglytuff Turtwig A (talk | contribs) 19:36, 30 January 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, I know. I was about to go and fix that. Just an accident on my part. CuboneKing 19:37, 30 January 2010 (UTC)

something to do

sorry if this is a rather small assignment, but you can vote here for the opening of book articles. This is another thing you can do. Also, why do you keep saying "because alternate coloration is a redirect now" a lot? Is it because of this? Turtwig A (talk | contribs) 23:33, 3 February 2010 (UTC)

1. OK, I'll do that. 2. Yes, it is. I say it all the time in real life because it screws with other people and they don't get it. I find it funny. CuboneKing 23:35, 3 February 2010 (UTC)
You can add party templates to Battle Mode. This will take a lot of time, though. Turtwig A (talk | contribs) 17:34, 6 February 2010 (UTC)
I'd do it, but thing is, I don't have the game, so they would be rather empty D: Thanks for the offer though :D CuboneKing 17:35, 6 February 2010 (UTC)
If you have Emerald, you can add the money you get by battling gym trainers. Turtwig A (talk | contribs) 17:37, 6 February 2010 (UTC)
There's something I can do. I'll go pull out my Emerald and battle Wattson. CuboneKing 17:38, 6 February 2010 (UTC)
Wait, I forgot why I put it down in the first place... No starter means no victory... Too hard... CuboneKing 19:12, 6 February 2010 (UTC)

Delete

We keep the info in there even with the delete template, as for referencing. It's not a redirect after one puts the delete template on it, so if that's what you're worried about, then... yeah. ht14 03:18, 9 March 2010 (UTC)

Oh, thanks. CuboneKing 03:19, 9 March 2010 (UTC)

On an unrelated note, can you let me handle the "Major Appearances" thing? I was kinda handling it... ht14 03:22, 9 March 2010 (UTC)

Oh :| I'll work from Arceus if you want to avoid edit conflicts... CuboneKing 03:23, 9 March 2010 (UTC)
If you must. The thing is, I mass-edit each page, but I don't care much about the Gen IV Pokémon at the moment, seeing as they're in the format I want them to be for the most part. ht14 03:28, 9 March 2010 (UTC)
Alright... You know, if you don't want me in this, just tell me. CuboneKing 03:29, 9 March 2010 (UTC)
I'm fine with it. I appreciate the help, really. ht14 03:34, 9 March 2010 (UTC)
Alright, guess I'll get to it :| CuboneKing 03:34, 9 March 2010 (UTC)
Just so you work on Gen IV. If you want to, Gen III will do as well. I'll do the others. ht14 03:37, 9 March 2010 (UTC)
Absolutely no problems in Gen III. - unsigned comment from CuboneKing (talkcontribs)
By the way CK, if you catch it within a few minutes of forgetting to sign and somebody else doesn't add the unsigned template, nobody minds if you sign it with ~~~~. R.A. Hunter Blade 04:05, 9 March 2010 (UTC)
Sigh... I'll keep that in mind, thanks Hunter Blade :) CuboneKing 04:07, 9 March 2010 (UTC)

(Resetting indent) Only one problem in Gen IV, ht. The rest is yours. CuboneKing 04:20, 9 March 2010 (UTC)

STOP TOUCHING YOUR PAGES

although the MftE is a little outdated, it still clearly says one userspace edit a day and youve made 4. do the math and stop editing your userspace. -- MAGNEDETH 17:26, 30 March 2010 (UTC)

ok, i made an error, you only made 3 edits, but thats still 2 too many. -- MAGNEDETH 17:28, 30 March 2010 (UTC)

Alright, DETH. I didn't see the one-a-day thing, so I'll stop now. I have something better to do anyway. CuboneKing 19:48, 30 March 2010 (UTC)

User talk pages

If you're gonna set up new members user talk pages for the love of god welcome everyone then and don't welcome like 2 members out of 10. If it's a tedious job don't do it. ιɴsσмиιαc 00:37, 5 April 2010 (UTC)

It's not required. CuboneKing 00:38, 5 April 2010 (UTC)
I know but what is the point in doing it if you're not gonna do it for everyone then? Why pick and choose for no reason...ιɴsσмиιαc 00:42, 5 April 2010 (UTC)
Well, I'm kind of in the middle of something. When I check the RC from time to time, I just welcome the first new member I see. Then I go back to the task I was working on... CuboneKing 00:44, 5 April 2010 (UTC)

GTS links

no offense, but i didnt ask for help. youre screwing me up. -- MAGNEDETH 01:07, 13 April 2010 (UTC)

Sorry. I'll find something else to do. CuboneKing 01:08, 13 April 2010 (UTC)

Hello

Wait I think I're confusing AshKetchumPeru I am not nor am Hugo conosco live in Peru but only saw that I thought it said India could help me because we speak the same language but did not know that I was seriously blocked the noy, if you will are guided by a user name, then that means that cuialquier deicr of Peru that is only because this guy has machado the name of his country on several websites, does not mean that all of usaurio ciuentas created in Bulbapeedia from Peru means that the question of evading bloqueos.Saludos and thanks.--Pokemon de Perú 23:30, 26 April 2010 (UTC)

If I got your point correctly, you're saying that you're not him, and not block evasion. I understand that. I was just saying that he got banned and he will not reply. CuboneKing 23:36, 26 April 2010 (UTC)

Sorry!

My computer was lagging while I was typing out the tpcd... sorry, didn't mean to overwrite the edit :/ ▫▪Ťïňắ 22:39, 28 April 2010 (UTC)

It's alright. No biggie. CuboneKing 22:42, 28 April 2010 (UTC)

Thanks

Thanks for the help. I didn't notice that. :) Swampert Man 23:50, 2 May 2010 (UTC)

No problem :D CuboneKing 23:51, 2 May 2010 (UTC)

Grammar

Cubone King,

Good evening. I apologise for re-doing my grammar correction on the Bug Type page, I had mistakenly thought it had not went through. However, I feel that "based on" is the correct grammar in this case, as well as the other 106 pages I found "based off of" written. I'm quite passionate about grammar and I was planning to correct these pages in the upcoming days. Is there some kind of agreement that can be reached over this matter?

Thanks,

--Burjojo 23:59, 5 May 2010 (UTC)

You know, you're probably right... I'll help if you want, but could you find a way to check? I'm very passionate about grammar too, but I just don't want you to correct all these pages only to go back and undo them all, so please check first :) Thanks, CuboneKing 00:02, 6 May 2010 (UTC)

I'll do my best to find a way to check, thank you for your co-operation :) --Burjojo 00:04, 6 May 2010 (UTC)

No problemo. CuboneKing 00:05, 6 May 2010 (UTC)

I've done some research over the matter. It would appear I'm not the first person to question this. There are scrolls of forums over the internet arguing the matter, but I did see some interesting explanations. If you were to type "based on" into Google, you would find much more results than "based off of". Also, the "of" is considered superfluous. For instance, in the sentence:

"After stowing away and getting kicked off of the S.S. Anne, Red meets the Pokémon Fan Club Chairman"

According to the majority, the "of" is not needed, as "getting kicked off the S.S Anne" is sufficient. This would not apply in the "based on" argument from earlier, however, as the usage is different. "Based on" is preffered to "based off of".

I do see why this has happened though, it is very common in speech (I say it myself I must admit) but it would appear frowned upon within the written aspects of english grammar.

But, it's down to you, boss. I live in Scotland, "glass" is a verb here ;)

--Burjojo 00:37, 6 May 2010 (UTC)

Oh, please don't call me boss :) I'm not even an admin :| I live in the US, and I hear "based off of" quite a bit more than "based on," which is why I was quick to revert your edit earlier. However, you do make a good point. Hm... I'd say take it to the Surpreme Court. CuboneKing 00:46, 6 May 2010 (UTC)

I got permission to go ahead :) though I did make a grammatical error myself when I wrote my plea but oh well. Thanks for your help! --Burjojo 09:53, 6 May 2010 (UTC)

Cool :D I'll help. CuboneKing 00:27, 7 May 2010 (UTC)
I thought I would consolidate sections. I just want to know why you are changing "off of" to "on." They both work grammatically. MaverickNate 04:00, 7 May 2010 (UTC)
If you want me to, I'll stop... CuboneKing 04:02, 7 May 2010 (UTC)
I did not say I wanted you to stop, I just wanted to know: I like knowing everything MaverickNate 04:03, 7 May 2010 (UTC)
I reverted such an edit by Burjojo, but then Bur brought up a good point that "Based on" seems more grammatical than "based off of." As I want Bulbapedia to be grammatical as possible, I asked Bur to ask TTE about the case. TTE gave us permission to go ahead and change it, so I went right ahead, and Bur will probably join when it's right for the time zone. CuboneKing 04:07, 7 May 2010 (UTC)
Fair enough. That was a ll I wanted to know. I just like to know what happens in my section. That is all. MaverickNate 04:12, 7 May 2010 (UTC)

CuboneKing, you legend! We are slowly getting there, only about 118 articles left! Work and exams are hindering me from doing things any faster, but I appreciate your help and will help when I can --Burjojo 17:19, 7 May 2010 (UTC)

Hehehe... :D CuboneKing 17:21, 7 May 2010 (UTC)

I need your advice on something. In the synopsis of EP270 there is this following sentence. Now I haven't seen the episode myself so I'm not really sure what it means.

" Scizor is sent out against Snorlax, and after a quick series of Quick Attacks, Scizor defeats Snorlax with a Metal Claw to the face off of a missed Hyper Beam"

Now, does that mean that Scizor hit Snorlax in the face? Or am I not quite getting this?

--Burjojo 01:11, 11 May 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, I think it means Snorlax hit Scizor after Snorlax fired a Hyper Beam that missed. CuboneKing 01:16, 11 May 2010 (UTC)

Well, thats it. All done. Except for Pokémon World, but none of us are allowed to edit that. Good work man! We'll have to have a battle sometime :) --Burjojo 16:12, 14 May 2010 (UTC)

Yes, indeed. :D I'm working on getting my Wi-Fi fixed, so I'll get back to you when that happens. CuboneKing 23:33, 14 May 2010 (UTC)

Userpage

Do you know how many Mainspace edits you need to create a Userpage? Swampert Man 00:52, 6 May 2010 (UTC)

A recent rule says you need to have been around for a certain amount of time. I think it was two weeks... CuboneKing 01:08, 6 May 2010 (UTC)
Okay, thank you. :) Swampert ManSwampert is Awesome! 01:10, 6 May 2010 (UTC)
By the way, nice new addition to your signature. You are learning quite fast :) It took me months to figure that stuff out... CuboneKing 01:11, 6 May 2010 (UTC)
Sorry about the late response to this, but the reason I learned how to do this is that I am on a wiki with a the same format as this. So I know how to do a lot of stuff, although Bulbapedia is WAY bigger than that other wiki, and is not as organized as this one. Swampert ManSwampert is Awesome! 21:30, 19 May 2010 (UTC)
'K, that's good to know :D CuboneKing 21:58, 19 May 2010 (UTC)

Hello

The article Boomerang (television) I think it can trippin could put the full name because there is a channel with the same name please I hope they change their name to Boomerang Cartoon Networck. Greetings--Pokemon de Perú 02:22, 7 May 2010 (UTC)

If you want to move it, bring it up on the talk page and see if any admins approve. :) CuboneKing 02:24, 7 May 2010 (UTC)

"Art"

Question: who told you about this? I know it exists and all, and I'm curious. Second, can we do it as D/P instead of DP, etc.? It looks better that way... ht14 03:35, 12 May 2010 (UTC)

The diff tool... And sure, I'll use D/P... CuboneKing 03:37, 12 May 2010 (UTC)
Diff tool? ht14 03:40, 12 May 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, in the RC, right next to people's edits. I enjoy using it. CuboneKing 03:41, 12 May 2010 (UTC)
Oh, I feel so slow... x.x I'm wondering who started it, that's all. iht14 03:44, 12 May 2010 (UTC)
'K. CuboneKing 03:46, 12 May 2010 (UTC)
*cough*Sorry to meddle in, but you're wrong CK was actually right. Word of God</span"> states that D/P is wrong and that DP, FRLG, etc. is right. Thanks, --Coolピカチュウ! 04:22, 12 May 2010 (UTC)
All right, can you set the template so it's DP, FRLG, etc. and not Diamond and Pearl, FireRed and LeafGreen, etc? Too much text... ht14 04:24, 12 May 2010 (UTC)
I think that the full text shows that we're not lazy... CuboneKing 04:26, 12 May 2010 (UTC)
About that... I'm not going to argue or anything. The past was DP, RS, FRLG. If you like change, fine. I don't mind change either, just not to ones that we've been accustomed to so long... I'll leave it at that.
@CP, if that was the case, how come there were no changes? I'm puzzled at this. I've done this for a very long time (as with many of my edits) with no reverts whatsoever... ht14 04:31, 12 May 2010 (UTC)
Because we generally trust you to make good edits, duh... and not make dumb template-coding-ignoring mistakes. The template's coded so that it works with the same abbreviations as have become standard... no slashes at all. TTEchidna 04:49, 12 May 2010 (UTC)
It's becoming a long week... -_- I figured that much out with the templating, but will you take my request? ht14 04:51, 12 May 2010 (UTC)

Other users' talk pages

Hey, CK. I haven't spoken with CP about this so I'm not sure if he thinks it's a huge deal or not, but if someone writes on someone else's talk page (esp. an admin's talk page) and the recipient of the message is clearly online, then give them the courtesy of replying before you barge in on the conversation. This helps to prevent edit conflicts. Cheers. —darklordtrom 23:23, 15 May 2010 (UTC)

K, thanks Trom, I'll try and avoid it in the future. I just thought it might be a good idea warning somebody who calls the entire Bulbapedia administration terrible... But I guess CP coulda done that. I guess I'll stop if everyone hates edit conflicts as much as I do... CuboneKing 01:21, 16 May 2010 (UTC)

Oh!!!

Can SOMEONE HELP????? Suddenly today I can no longer edit MY userpage!!!! Abd then my Sig. suddly claims my page NO LONGER EXISTS!!!!! Can someone explain this to me?

What are you talking about? It's still there. CuboneKing 23:58, 19 May 2010 (UTC)

I'm suddenly not aloud to EDIT my page!!!! --Corynofplatinum 23:59, 19 May 2010 (UTC)

It's because you haven't edited the mainspace enough yet. Once you've made enough mainspace edits, you'll be able to. Oh, and by the way, your sig needs to link to "User:Corynofplatinum", not just "Corynofplatinum"... CuboneKing 00:02, 20 May 2010 (UTC)

Thanks!!!!User:Corynofplatinum
