Clever use of soft redirects. - 振霖T 22:48, 17 March 2006 (CST)

why did fabu-vinny delet my article? that loser...

Which one? The misspelled movie, (that we already have an article on,) or the fake Pokémon? FabuVinny 16:10, 17 February 2006 (CST)

the misspelled movie. can u bring back the lilo page so i can put it on my user page? i wanna put the lilo article on my page!!

Um, wouldn't it be better if you'd crop off the black borders from screenshots and resize them to NTSC-resolution before you upload them? --nYoo 12:00, 24 March 2006 (CST)

Can you make a new template for Pokédex. It involves the use of telling users levels of which Pokémon are caught at e.g. Dialga. --Zywxn 4:55, 26 April 2007 (CST)

Can you show everyone what the templates are and how to see them? --Zywxn 17:24, 14 May 2007 (CST)

Project COD

About Project COD. The article Guy (anime) says that Guy had a wishmur which evolved into a Loudred and then Exploud. But maybe he caught an Exploud, and not a Wishmur?

First off, it's Whismur, not "Wishmur". And yes, he did have one. It was shown in a flashback of Guy's. -- Kenji Girl.

Hi, FabuVinny! I dropped a little message on the COD talk board, and I need a reply. It might also help other prospective Project members..? Sang'gre Habagat 10:40, 3 December 2007 (UTC)

Do you know why there is an error. May you please fix it. I want to upload some images of the Diamond and Pearl gym learders and gym map (from the site Serebii.net; http://www.serebii.net/diamondpearl/gymleaders.shtml)


Thank you.

DP019 image

I like to imform you that user: Taylor is changing your image of the DP019. May you tell him not to change it.



D/P Episode List

Thanks for editing that with the new names; I had totally forgotten when I was doing all the other articles. However, you forgot the exclaimation points in the titles. No worries, I fixed them. ^_^ - Paperfairy @ 17:37 03/19/2007 EST

Vandal!

I'm reporting you a vandal. His name is Pichu Bro 3. He vandalized Ash Ketchum page! --Maxim 18:54, 23 March 2007 (UTC)

Another vandal, PokeGuy3. I'm sure it's his sockpuppet. --Maxim 19:16, 23 March 2007 (UTC)

Just giving you a heads up about a guy named Mudkip lover who blanked the Mudkip page. I've reverted the edits. Wanted to let one of the admins know about what's happening. --PAK Man 03:04, 31 March 2007 (UTC)

Made a mess, help me fix it...

Extremely sorry, but it seems I missed a rule and made a tiny mess... I created an article about the song "You & Me & Pokémon", but the 2 "&"s are creating problems. Can you change it to "and"s please? Thanks!

Vandal alert

Just thought I'd warn you: the latest new "contributor", Getter, is a vandal. Look at the history of Ash's Glalie (I already fixed it...) --ElectAbuzzzz 16:50, 24 April 2007 (UTC)

Palmer

Why did you remove the strategy section of the article Palmer? --Shiny Noctowl 14:23, 14 August 2007 (UTC)

Because this is an encyclopedia, not a strategy guide. --Shiningpikablu252 14:37, 14 August 2007 (UTC)
The strategy section gives information on how to beat Palmer. It's rather useless to just say that there is someone named Palmer and you battle him and he has a Rhyperior, a Dragonite, and a Milotic. --Shiny Noctowl 14:41, 14 August 2007 (UTC)
Nope. The whole point is to give canon information on him, not random strategies. --FabuVinny T-C-S 15:24, 14 August 2007 (UTC)

Nastina and Brutella

Er, we have Brutella and Nastina as both having the Japanese name Obaba. Is that right?--Loveはドコ? (talk contribs) 03:28, 21 August 2007 (UTC)

Yep. Obaba is a Japanese word that roughly means something along the lines of "hag". It's not a name, either, more of a term. --DarkfireTaimatsu 03:33, 21 August 2007 (UTC)
Aha. I was going to add to Brutella's page that meaning for Obaba, but then I looked and Nastina's and they were the same...I'll translate them as "old woman" or something then.--Loveはドコ? (talk contribs) 04:19, 21 August 2007 (UTC)

Marian

I was just fixing the spelling to reflect the move. What's so bad about that? --Shiny Noctowl 19:14, 21 August 2007 (UTC)

Reply.

I'm pretty sure it DOES say "Why? Why not?". TheBlazikenMaster 10:07, 20 September 2007 (UTC)

Johto Journeys

Please leave this article alone. http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/The_Johto_Journeys

The Psychic Sidekicks was the last Johto Journeys episode for Kids WB, whereas The Fortune Hunters is the real last Johto Journey episode for USA's CN and other English countries. If you're going with what episode ends a season, The Psychic Sidekicks WAS the last Johto Journeys episode for Kids WB since it was aired on August 11. Johto League Champions aired on August 18, 2001. It makes no sense that The Fortune Hunters is the last JJ episode since it was aired on June 2, 2001 on Kids WB. If it was, then how come Forest Grumps aired on June 9 on WB? Research first before posting something.

Page Deletion

I know you're an administrator and I'm not going to push this. However, it's my belief that glitches and other forms of cheating are not notable enough to warrent their own pages. I say we should merge all the glitch Pokémon into one big article, like Evolution Item, OR just add that info under the normal Pokémon's trivia. Like putting Glitchy Charizard under the normal Charizard page. Agree? Why not? -Politoed666

The no ads template wasn't in my signature. I had a <noinclude> around it. --Shiny NoctowlTalk | Contribs 12:08, 12 October 2007 (UTC)

DP020 COtD

Thanks for using "Maria" for Gardevoir's owner. :) I appreciate it. Kenji-girl really annoyed me about whether she has a name in the English version or not. Closed Captioning IS NOT proof at all. Like I said, CC center possibly made it up.

Once again, thanks. :)

JohnnyRebel

Please ban JohnnyRebel!!! TinaTheKirlia, me and Politoed666 have been reverting all of his vandilism! --Theryguy512 01:20, 4 November 2007 (UTC)

Darkmaster0

I've told this user not to blank his user talk page after he'd blanked it once. The next thing he did afterward was blank the page again. Someone needs to get through to him that the practice in question is frowned upon at Bulbapedia, that blanking any page of any sort is not a good thing. --Shiningpikablu252 23:42, 18 November 2007 (UTC)

Vandal Alert!!!

User's named User:Vudlgur, User:WhydowebanPh34rwhenhesawesome, and User:Ph34rulz‎ wer just created! Ph34rulz‎ said he won't be bad, the other Ph34r one din't respond, but the Vudlgur one is TOTALLY a vandal!!! --Theryguy512 13:05, 25 November 2007 (UTC)

Okay, Zhen Lin got it. --Theryguy512 13:13, 25 November 2007 (UTC)

Stop!

Until it is offically decided, leave the pictures out of the gallery. The project still states nothing about them being in gallery. --Theryguy512 22:37, 30 November 2007 (UTC)

Shiny Noctowl

He's censoring content on Talk:Dragon trio, Bulbapedia talk:The Great Bulbapedia Turkey Shoot, and Talk:Omanyte for no apparent reason, despite the fact that a certain notice tag is up warning users of potentially offensive content. It appears he won't relax until I agree with him, which I don't. Can something be done about this? --Shiningpikablu252 15:38, 1 December 2007 (UTC)

Do you have any decency? Shiny?! 15:39, 1 December 2007 (UTC)
Question is, do you have the decency to let those pages be? --Shiningpikablu252 15:40, 1 December 2007 (UTC)
Do you have the decency to use proper language? (Yes, some of those inappropriate posts were by you.) Shiny?! 15:42, 1 December 2007 (UTC)
You didn't touch any of my actual work aside from my PA tag, if I recall correctly. I don't want to get into a war over something as insignificant as slight indecency. --Shiningpikablu252 15:44, 1 December 2007 (UTC)
Slight? Shiny?! 15:45, 1 December 2007 (UTC)
And did you ever think that the ones who made those comments might not want them censored? You probably should have at least asked whomever made those comments BEFORE you did any censorship. --Shiningpikablu252 16:14, 1 December 2007 (UTC)

Stop posting vulgar language! Shiny?! 17:12, 1 December 2007 (UTC)

I don't use profanity. But you have no right to simply censor those pages, especially when they are as tame as "damn". --FabuVinny T-C-S 17:19, 1 December 2007 (UTC)

Question on one of the original episodes pages...

Ok, a while back, I inserted the relvalation as to why Misty loves water pokemon so much in the Important events section of "Some Like It Hot". Then, some days later, it was moved into the trivia section of that same page. what I am asking is why doesn't it merit the Important events section?

I mean, you guys seemed to allow things such as "Meowth learns how to talk" as an important event in the episode "Go West, Young Meowth", so why isn't the reason why Misty has that extremeist love for water pokemon enough for the Important events section of EP240?

~~Weedle_Mchairybug~~

Asking whoever actually did it would lead to the accurate answer. --FabuVinny T-C-S 16:30, 7 December 2007 (UTC)

Giratina and the Sky Bouquet

There's a move war going on over whether the article should be at Giratina and the Sky Bouquet or at Giratina and the Icy Sky's Bouquet. Netto-kun is defending the former, Pokemaniac102 is defending the latter. Someone already notified TTEchidna about this, but I fear this move war will keep going if they plan on waiting for TTEchidna. I also fear that Shiny Noctowl might want to join in once his block expires less than an hour from now. I hope this can be settled ASAP...--Shiningpikablu252 16:30, 8 December 2007 (UTC)

It's already been settled Pokemaniac102 16:32, 8 December 2007 (UTC)

Aside from the fact that Fabu-Vinny protected the talk page. I'm not sure if that was purposeful or accidential...--Shiningpikablu252 18:21, 8 December 2007 (UTC)

Um. You did do it to the talk page. Plus, at least don't protect the page until another edit war happens because I doubt that would happen again. And many people have gathered information about the movie. Few of them are sysops. But if you do protect the page, and I have information about the movie, I'll just run it by a sysop Pokemaniac102 18:23, 8 December 2007 (UTC)

Battle CD vs. Battle CDs

While I was working on changing many occurences of "Ho-oh" to "Ho-Oh", mainly those related to the P link template, I ran into an issue here. There are two articles about Battle CDs, one at Battle CD and one at Battle CDs. It's obvious we're going to have to merge them, and I'm not about to try a bad merge like Pokémon Lover King Mario did in trying to make Mew (Mewtwo Strikes Back) and Mew (Lucario and the Mystery of Mew) into Mew (movies). Problem is, how are we going to make sure all data in both articles makes it to the merged article and where exactly should the merged article be at? --Shiningpikablu252 18:18, 8 December 2007 (UTC)

Sandbox

Is it better now? Cerberus 01:52, 14 December 2007 (UTC)

Shipping redirects

Nice idea on including the two parties involved, but what of shipping redirects that lead to disambigs such as GreenShipping? I don't know what to do with those...--Shiningpikablu252 03:35, 14 December 2007 (UTC)

The War of Missingno.

There's an edit war going on between Missingno. Master and TinaTheKirlia over whether or not Missingno. should even be considered a Pokémon. I fear this could get out of hand if something's not done. Can you step in? Thanks. --Shiningpikablu252 20:48, 19 December 2007 (UTC)

I also notified Missingno. Master on his talk page that it's not a Pokémon...........MERRY CHRISTMAS 21:38, 19 December 2007 (UTC)

Deletion

Do you support or oppose the deletion of the shootout?Pokemaniac102 17:55, 27 December 2007 (UTC)

Episode Pictures

Please don't put episode pic on articles! TTEchidna asked me to make duplicates of the pictures, so they won't accidentaly chandge and we wouldn't have another Protect accident! Now I have to reupload the pic you just deleted.....--Theryguy512 22:09, 5 January 2008 (UTC)

Images don't "accidently change". Those images are protected so Jsmith can't do anything. --FabuVinny T-C-S 22:12, 5 January 2008 (UTC)
*sigh*......can you please let me make duplicates just in case though? --Theryguy512 22:14, 5 January 2008 (UTC)
There's no need for duplicate pictures. The only response to Jsmith is to ban and revert on sight. I'm trying to cut down on duplicate images on the archives as it is. --FabuVinny T-C-S 22:25, 5 January 2008 (UTC)
Dude! Before going all angry and deleting all the duplicate pics, can you please consult with TTEchidna?>???? --Theryguy512 22:20, 5 January 2008 (UTC)
I'm not angry. I'm just deleting because they are duplicates and we are past the stage of trying to negotiate with that vandal. --FabuVinny T-C-S 22:25, 5 January 2008 (UTC)
Can you please just talk to TTEchidna about the duplicate pics before deleting al of them? --Theryguy512 22:27, 5 January 2008 (UTC)
I dunno, I do think that it's a good idea not to have the images used for the episode articles used for different things. What should be done is have different images found for their other uses, or at least a warning on the image pages not to change them without seeing where they are linked on BN and BP. After all, the page on Bite had an image of Ash following Paul that confused the heck out of people until they realized the image was changed, and I had to upload the old one as a separate filename because Ash following Paul is a much better picture for the episode than Turtwig biting Chimchar's head. I mean, how does that describe Different Strokes for Different Blokes? It's a turtle biting a monkey's head, and the monkey ended up eventually belonging to the same guy as the turtle anyway. TTEchidnaGSDS! 00:44, 6 January 2008 (UTC)
Well, if you upload a new version of any image, you should check to see the impact of it. It's not as if we have an exact code for the episode images. I see no need for duplicate images and it stands out in the categories on the Archives . --FabuVinny T-C-S 01:05, 6 January 2008 (UTC)
True, we don't. Maybe we should make one... since we don't have a code for the items either, really. And of course, there's definitely no need for duplicate images... except in certain cases. TTEchidnaGSDS! 01:19, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

Quin48421

I've checked this user's edit history, and it includes quite a few questionable edits. His edits on Leaf (game) including false information has led me to believe his (sloppy) edits on Diamond (Special) may also be bad edits as well. Can we get the information checked out and dealt with? --Shiningpikablu252 23:11, 11 January 2008 (UTC)

I also have seen his edits, and they are quite poor. For one, he uses incorrect punctuation and spells Pokémon as pokemon. --Theryguy512 23:19, 11 January 2008 (UTC)

Venustoise

I was going to create a little stub article on Venustoise, but it looks like you already deleted it beforehand... I was going to upload his picture and give him some good content too, but the deletion log didn't really give any information as why it was removed. What's wrong with Venustoise? D: He's cool. ~Toastypk- Talk 18:44, 13 January 2008 (UTC)

Urgent Deletion Need

There's currently three pages in Category:Candidates for speedy deletion related to a ROM hack. They are at Pokemon shinygold, Pokemon Shiny Gold, and Pokémon Shiny Gold, respectively. The first link was where the page initially was, it became a double redirect before the deletion tag went up. The second link was where the page was first moved to, it became a regular redirect before the deletion tag went up. The third link is where the page currently is. I fear that, if nothing's done, Nelmir206 might come back and try to defend the page's nonexistant notability. Can something be done? --Shiningpikablu252 21:34, 19 January 2008 (UTC)

Befriended

I am officially lost now. What counts as "Befriended" and what doesn't? Cassius335 13:09, 22 January 2008 (UTC)

Sigh

A little while ago, a new user created a sockpuppet named User:Ph34r(The Real Deal). I don't know how you want to deal with this, but I suggest that the sockpuppet should be banned and the creator souls be given a warning. --Theryguy512 21:54, 22 January 2008 (UTC)

Welcome

Welcome to Bulbapedia, Fabu-Vinny!

As a new user, you may wish to learn a few things that will be useful in your editing:

For a basic overview of wiki code, see this page. The manual of style is very important. Make sure to read it. It outlines all official policies of Bulbapedia. The word Pokémon is spelled with a capital P and an accented é. The P, of course, is accessed easily by holding Shift and pressing the P key, while the é can be accessed using Alt + 130 or Alt + 0233 on a Windows computer, and Option + e, then e again on a Mac. Otherwise, you can click it in the character palette below the editbox. The word Poké Ball is spelled as two words. The "Poké" part is identical to the four beginning letters in "Pokémon"; "Ball" is spelled with a captial B (which is, again, accessed by holding Shift and pressing the B key). The spelling "Pokéball" arises frequently, but is incorrect. On talk pages, please sign your comments with four tildes (Bulbmond 21:13, 25 January 2008 (UTC)). The use of link templates is official policy. For an explanation on their use, see the page on shortlinks. If you happen to spot a vandal in the recent changes that has not been dealt with, please see this page for how to deal with it. A list of pages that are linked to, but have not been created, can be found at this page. A list of short articles that may require more information can be found here, while a list of articles that need improvement can be found here. A list of the admins that you can contact in case of a problem, can be found here. Thank you, and have a good time editing here!Bulbamond TALK STUFF

What was that for? :S Tina δ 21:13, 25 January 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, given that I have been editing for over two and a half years and have been given administrator powers, I think I'm past the point where I would need a welcome message. 0_0 --FabuVinny T-C-S 21:18, 25 January 2008 (UTC)

Pages

See the candidates for deletion to see them allPokeManiac102 18:41, 26 January 2008 (UTC)

I know that. That's what I'm using to get them them all. --FabuVinny T-C-S 18:43, 26 January 2008 (UTC)

OH! Did you block Theoryspark and the other one yet?PokeManiac102 18:48, 26 January 2008 (UTC)

You still didn't block the Cuntestshipper11 or something. That's the same personPokeManiac102 19:05, 26 January 2008 (UTC)
I see no user by that name. I was even checking the edit histories as I did the deletions and that name didn't appear. --FabuVinny T-C-S 19:14, 26 January 2008 (UTC)
Ok, now I've got them. That's what happens when you arrive after the fact. --FabuVinny T-C-S 19:18, 26 January 2008 (UTC)

One more thing, Pokemon Hunter J's henchmen delete the redirect to make way for a move (no é)PokeManiac102 19:19, 26 January 2008 (UTC)

You missed one. The vandal moved my user page twice, and the legitimate content that belongs there is still at the second destination. I need help getting it back where it belongs--Politoed666 even marked the legitimate content for deletion, which I reverted in hopes of restoring it! --Shiningpikablu252 20:59, 26 January 2008 (UTC)
Way ahead of you. :) --FabuVinny T-C-S 21:00, 26 January 2008 (UTC)

Sigh

Can you please talk some sense into User:Binks??? He keeps on deleting his talk page and I tell him not to, but he always gets annoyed and deletes it again. Thanks you. --Theryguy512 18:38, 27 January 2008 (UTC)

Is that so bad? Mine could probably use a clear-out. - Cassius335 22:11, 27 January 2008 (UTC)
You can archive everything on your talk page once it gets too long but you can't simply delete messages without a good reason. --FabuVinny T-C-S 22:13, 27 January 2008 (UTC)

Sorry!

Sorry about that edit! I saw somebody make an edit (and thought it was you!) and they changed anime to Anime. I won't do that again, I have learnt. Sorry! TESHIGIGAS 15:57, 29 January 2008 (UTC)

Shadowdragon

This user keeps removing content from pages for no reason at all. I warned the user on his user talk page, and he responded by removing content from my user page for no reason! I think this user's a lost cause, can something be done? --Shiningpikablu252 00:09, 2 February 2008 (UTC)

It looks like PAK Man has it under control. --FabuVinny T-C-S 00:12, 2 February 2008 (UTC)
