(Did that get your attention?)

If you are coming here to reply to a message I left on your talk page, PLEASE GO BACK AND REPLY THERE. It's easier for conversation purposes if you keep everything together. I will get an e-mail alert when you reply on your own talk page and I can later unsubscribe from the page when the conversation is over.

Otherwise, please leave a message below. I will respond here to your message. I will not be coming to your talk page if I reply to a message here unless I have a separate concern on a separate topic.

Thank you!

  • 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.
  • Sign all talk page posts with four tildes (~~~~). This will turn into your name and the time you wrote the comment.

Thank you, and have a good time editing here!

Regarding Versions Exclusives and Location Tables

Hello. I'm just letting you know that your point has been discussed, and it's been decided that no change is necessary. The tables' main purpose is to show version-exclusives, and if you have to trade for one, it makes the entire line a version exclusive. Even a newcomer to the series should be able to understand that they only have to trade for one member of the line in order to get the later evolutions. But thank you for your concern about the issue. Crystal Talian 04:36, 10 August 2012 (UTC)

Preview Button

Please try to use the preview button and combine your edits more often. This is to prevent the same page being edited four or five times in a row. Please keep this in mind during future editing. Thanks, --Pokemaster97 21:22, 7 October 2012 (UTC)

I actually thought of things to add after the fact on two of those consecutive edits, hence why I did that. One or two of the edits could have been saved, but when reviewing what I added, I missed individual cases of what I was changing. Even previewing, that happens. CycloneGU (talk) 19:00, 8 October 2012 (UTC)
I understand that happens, that's why I said try. That's why you preview to have a greater chance of catching those individual cases you may have missed. --Pokemaster97 21:22, 8 October 2012 (UTC)

Boom, Reshiram.

Please do not discuss the unconfirmed event legends on an unrelated Talk page (in this case Zygarde's). I'm leaving you a friendly reminder so you don't make the same mistake again. Thank. --The Truth aka Relicant 17:11, 2 November 2013 (UTC)

Unfortunately, there is no other page to talk about them. Since Zygarde would be linking to one of them (whichever one is 719, which is suggested from findings on Serebii to be Diancie, then Volcanion, then Hoopa), I thought that was the best place TO bring up the subject. Where else SHOULD I bring this up on the Wiki? CycloneGU (talk) 17:33, 2 November 2013 (UTC)
The Talk page of legendary Pokémon would obvs be a good place to bring up the unconfirmed three. Unless the trio are somehow related to Zygarde, it's irrelevant bringing them up on it's talk page. --The Truth aka Relicant 17:37, 2 November 2013 (UTC)
Alright, I'll take a look there, then. CycloneGU (talk) 17:52, 2 November 2013 (UTC)

Learnset tables

Just thought I would let you know that you only need to put "xy=n" in the header templates, so you don't need to put the "XY|ORAS" before it. Also you don't need to add anything extra (such as "XY|ORAS|xy=n") to the footer templates. Lady Ariel 23:01, 14 December 2014 (UTC)

Noted. I was however looking at the footer and noticing that it does not center correctly, so it might be something to address by tying it to the footer having the added data, and therefore I'm going to keep adding it to the footer hoping it eventually triggers a wider centering range (the code adds the three columns, so the footer needs to account for the three columns too). I noticed a few pages ago one with your abbreviated form, so can change back to that, but the footer still needs re-centering.
I also have plans to compile the full TM list with contest data in a working page in my userspace; I can then use my Notepad to crop the list for each of the 719 Pokémon based on data already on the page without editing that page. If any data is missing or needs further modifications, they can be done after that; such edits will be done one by one as I get to them. They obviously won't all be today; I only plan to set up the tables for those up to Deoxys today, and will take a break to set up my TM page after that. I'll show you what I'm talking about later, and most of THAT editing (after setup) will likely be tomorrow if the Twitch channel I moderate goes on broadcast this evening. CycloneGU (talk) 23:09, 14 December 2014 (UTC)
Please don't change the tables to the version with the contest stats until you are ready to add the information in. This way, we can complete everything in one go. --Pokemaster97 23:14, 14 December 2014 (UTC)
The reason I'm setting up the tables now is because I have the code for the table setup on my clipboard and can do that in one swoop; that way, I don't forget to add the headers in a later edit. That's more important for the Hoenn group than the others, hence why I'm only fixing Hoenn this evening; everyone else up to Celebi and from Turtwig onwards can wait to have their tables set up until I have the info ready. The header is different for every table because of the different types in the header providing the colour, and since I'll be editing in Notepad, that's why I find it easier to get this particular set of tables done now.
Once I have my TM list set up with all the contest data, I'll be continually copying the table into Notepad and cropping the headers and any unlearned TMs by whoever I'm editing so I can just replace all tm5 data with all tm6 data.
I will pause for now and start the TM chart, and maybe I'll change my mind and agree with you. At least that way I can get some of the tables fully completed this evening, so that might be for the best. I might be able to set the top of my Notepad to show "3|xy=n}}" to start, and that can be where I paste from (where the "3}}" is) so I don't forget it.

When someone asks or tells you that you don't need to/should not do something that you're doing, especially a veteran user or staff member, responding with a message that sums up as, "I'm going to keep doing it anyway," or, "I don't care," is not acceptable. You're welcome to respectfully discuss the reasons as to why you were doing the action, but simply shrugging off their message and continuing on (or saying you'll continue on) is nothing short of rude and insubordinate behaviour. Your account has been blocked for 1 week, and I highly suggest you take that time to read up on the code of conduct. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 23:30, 14 December 2014 (UTC)
