EP161 Trivia

I undid your edit on EP161 trivia beacuse when you made your edit, you deleted other trivia. Please go back and re-read the Bulbapedia:Manual of style. --Theryguy512 16:17, 1 January 2008 (UTC)

Spoiler links

When you edit an anime article, the links to certain Pokémon should reflect how the Pokémon was at that point in time; i.e., when dealing with an episode where Dawn's Ambipom hasn't been traded to her, link to it as Ash's Aipom instead. If it's been traded but hasn't evolved yet, you should link to it as Dawn's Aipom. They all redirect to the same page, so it doesn't matter too much in the end. I'd like to have all links on Bulbapedia avoid redirects entirely, but this came from TTE himself, so... --Martonimos((Argh|Blargh)) 17:28, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

Alright, cool, didn't know that. -Dr. Ookido 17:31, 12 September 2008 (UTC)
Redirects are bad but we need them. Not only does it make it so that we don't have to go back through all 90+ DP episodes whenever Piplup decides to evolve, but it makes sure that someone who doesn't know that it does later doesn't get spoiled... until they click the link.

Lol, yeah I guess that's true. Is there a way to have the text say Dawn's Ambipom but link to Ash's Ambipom? -Dr. Ookido 17:40, 12 September 2008 (UTC)
Well, if you mean the text of the link, then we can easily do that with a vertical pipe... but if you meant the rollover text, I don't think so. It shows the URL of the page you're linking to, so the only way to get that to say something different is to link to a different page; a redirect. Although like TTE said, if someone actually clicks on the link, they're on their own. --Martonimos((Argh|Blargh)) 00:57, 13 September 2008 (UTC)
But how about certain cases, for instance, like at the bottom of DP036, at the Pokémon list section for Dawn's Buizel? Can it be made so that it visibly says Buizel (Dawn's), but clicking on (Dawn's) leads to the page for Ash's Buizel without a redirect? Because it is a special link template (Sorry, I might have mis-worded it because I'm not an expert on wikis and all)? -Dr. Ookido 09:59, 13 September 2008 (UTC)
