User Pages

is it just me, or did EVERYONE's user pages just get deleted? -- MAGNEDETH 00:26, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

That threw me off for a moment too. Look at what date we've just entered. --FabuVinny T-C-S 00:27, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
Explain Porygon-Z 00:32, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
well, its April 1st in UK. im in U.S. Eastern, so its only 8:30 for me! though, i see everyones date as April 1st, dispite the EST offset....this is either Zhen giving us his opinion on User pages, or a cruel cruel joke. -- MAGNEDETH 00:34, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
...oh, how fun. Fun. Veerrry fun. Bet that over 9000 people are gonna register under something Ph34r related now. Tina δ 00:36, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
well, all of the names still exsist, just our user pages dont. -- MAGNEDETH 00:39, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
Haha, no, I meant as an April Fools' joke. LOLZ LOOK AT ME I'M THE ORIGINAL PH34R--, stuff like that. Tina δ 00:42, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

I bet someone is going to say that GSDS is confirmed... User:Darkmaster0 P.S. Can't find signature without user page :(

well, you arent supposed to be using sig templates anyway, its against the new rules. -- MAGNEDETH 00:46, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
But why are the userpages gone? Porygon-Z 01:00, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
April Fools, assumingly. Tina δ 01:01, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
I'm sure they'll be back in around five hours. --FabuVinny | Talk Page 19:19, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
The big question is whether we'll be able to edit them when they come back. Zurqoxn 23:06, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

Favor.

Can you move Glitch Adam to User:Glitch Adam? Thanks. --ニョロトノ666 20:01, 10 April 2008 (UTC)

Oh, and would you delete the resulting redirect? --ニョロトノ666 20:02, 10 April 2008 (UTC)
I already saw it in the recent changes. I would have done that without prodding. --FabuVinny |Talk Page| 20:08, 10 April 2008 (UTC)
Sorry. --ニョロトノ666 20:11, 10 April 2008 (UTC)
I removed the link to Glitch Adam so that it wouldn't soon appear as a wanted page. MoldyOrange 21:26, 10 April 2008 (UTC)

A little help?

I try to make a Fan Fic but whenever I try to, it says that I don't have permission to edit the User: namespace!--Quick Man 22:53, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

Userspace edits have been stopped for the time being. I suggest you post your fanfic in Bulbagarden's forum instead. --FabuVinny |Talk Page| 15:32, 12 April 2008 (UTC)

Same here, I really would like to make a user page for myself, but sadly can't. Why? Jake200493 19:30, 20 May 2008 (UTC) User: Jake200493

Just read the Message from the Editor on the Main Page. --FabuVinny |Talk Page| 19:33, 20 May 2008 (UTC)

Actually

Yeah, you can, but you can't change the BG or text color, what's wrong with having an alternate template? Venomoth 19:11, 14 April 2008 (UTC)

The whole point of templates is that the same one can be used on multiple pages. Plus, we already have enough issues with the user namespace right now without adding unnecessary additions like that. --FabuVinny |Talk Page| 20:11, 14 April 2008 (UTC)
Ok. --*Ɣℯⲛօӎօṫհ* 19:22, 16 April 2008 (UTC)

Disorder

You have no idea how bad this disorder is do you, My Wikipedia contributions --Britannia's Blade 18:35, 22 April 2008 (UTC)

I was just asking. --FabuVinny |Talk Page| 18:36, 22 April 2008 (UTC)

Pokemon Ranger Batonnage

I got the release date for Pokemon Ranger Batonnage by noticing a Pattern. Just like the Pattern between Pokemon Mystery Dungeon 2 and Pokemon Diamond & Pearl there is A Pattern between the Release dates of Pokemon Ranger and Pokemon Ranger Batonnage - unsigned comment from Blaziken God (talkcontribs)

But the announcement of the European release date for Mystery Dungeon 2 has already disproven this "pattern". There is no way to accurately guess when things will come out. --FabuVinny |Talk Page| 14:06, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

Problem

I found a problem but don't know how to fix it. wtpt redirects to WTPT, but WTPT redirects to WTPT - Pokémon Radio. So, wtpt needs to redirect to WTPT - Pokémon Radio. Porygon-Z 14:32, 4 May 2008 (UTC)

I've taken care of it. --ニョロトノ666 14:33, 4 May 2008 (UTC)

Wallace Cup

I'm wondering y u deleted the Pokemon entries.--KukiTalk 02:01, 10 May 2008 (UTC)

Because it is now clear that the characters are not limiting themselves in what they use - May in particular is apparently switching her team around to make use of all seven. Thus, the Pokémon listing is not as worthwhile as it initially seemed. --FabuVinny |Talk Page| 02:05, 10 May 2008 (UTC)

Befriending Lucario

Continuation of comment on undone revision-himself to Ash throughout the movie like he was Sir Aaron, thus, Lucario felt he belonged to him--KukiTalk 11:24, 12 May 2008 (UTC)

No. No, he didn't. Lucario - who only saw himself as a servant of Aaron for most of the movie anyway - felt no feelings of companionship towards Ash. And that still doesn't earn him a place in the list of Pokémon owned by Ash. --FabuVinny |Talk Page| 11:28, 12 May 2008 (UTC)

PPV

Pokémon Platinum, the article needs to be moved to Pokémon Platinum Version. But TTEchidna has blocked it from being created. Can you Unblock it?•Pokemaniac102 21:50, 14 May 2008 (UTC)

The block is set to turn off in an hour anyway. I'll move the article then. --FabuVinny |Talk Page| 21:55, 14 May 2008 (UTC)
Only an hour? oh my bad. Okay.•Pokemaniac102 21:56, 14 May 2008 (UTC)

Neo Team Rocket

There's a user who's put this article up for deletion because "it doesn't deserve its own page", despite the fact that the page is most definitely improvable. Now, given that you know more about Pokémon Special than I do, do you have any ideas on how this article can be improved, even if it means turning it into a redirect? Keep in mind that Neo Team Rocket is a fan term (hence its inclusion in the "fanon terminology" category) used to refer to Team Rocket under Mask of Ice. --Shiningpikablu252 17:33, 16 May 2008 (UTC)

I'm still not that knowledgeable on the details to be able to add to the article, unfortunately. I threw in my thoughts on the talk page. --FabuVinny |Talk Page| 15:57, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

Emergency

Ph34r is back and is posing as Optimatum just look at TTE Chidna talk page in the grammar bit and the dragon trio talk page. It says Optimatum bu the edits were made by user ph3r4ever or something like that. - unsigned comment from Sailor Earth (talkcontribs)

The trouble with this system is that I can't respond to "emergencies" if I am not online. So has it been dealt with? --FabuVinny |Talk Page| 15:45, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
The trouble with sailor Earth is that he doesn't do research and jumps to conclusions whenever he sees the word 'Ph34r'. It's Da Θρtιmαtum♏Talk|Links11:25 25 May 2008

Could u create Party tables for these trainers?

First, I put Shuppet Emily (Hoenn)'s page under befriended, and needs fixing--KukiTalk 20:45, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

Second, EP002 needs the change of errors and dub edits into subsections than sections

List of Party table "needers"

1. Brodie

2. Vladimir the Attacker

3. Kelly

4. Erica

5. Joshua (coordinator)

6. Robert (Hoenn)

7. Make a section of Robin's page for his Wailord (but no "Robin's Wailord" page)

8. Brianna

9. Create a section for Tommy (Kanto), befriending Kangaskhan.

10. Emily (Hoenn)

11. Kurt

Thanks--KukiTalk 01:29, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

Um, what is preventing you from doing any of that? --FabuVinny |Talk Page| 01:32, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

I don't know how!--KukiTalk 01:34, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

DONE! --Force Fire 02:11, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

Pester all you want

It is not pointless and I have already discussed some points, you threatening to block me with that weak excuse is ridiculous. Go and take some time to cool off mate. TeePee-20.7 20:18, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

Sorry, but Bulbagarden benefits from me far more than it benefits from you and blocking you would cool things off just as easily. Your general attitude is grounds for a block so don't push it. --FabuVinny |Talk Page| 20:33, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

User:Pokemaniac102

I would like for him to be banned or given a warning. He Blanked my page, is rude to me, and uses obsene comments. The same goes for Garrison 12975 whatever without the blanking the page....[[User:Oak-leaf Knight]] 02:18, 2 June 2008 (UTC)[[User:Oak-leaf Knight]] 02:05, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

I've seen many more do much worse and have not been, and yet, I'm not the cause of this, it's not like anyone else is much worse~Pokemaniac102 02:11, 2 June 2008 (UTC)
Jesus Christ. Everybody, lay off each other. --ニョロトノ666 02:13, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

So its fine for you to blank pages, but not for other users to blank them.[[User:Oak-leaf Knight]] 02:16, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

I didn't blank your page, I just got rid off the bad stuff to start anew like someone said~Pokemaniac102 02:18, 2 June 2008 (UTC)
Really? Did you move it, or just get rid of it? Hmmmmmm[[User:Oak-leaf Knight]] 02:20, 2 June 2008 (UTC)
I just got rid of the bad stuff, I kept the welcome, just all the bad stuff goes into the past~Pokemaniac102 02:22, 2 June 2008 (UTC)
Did I ask you to remove the bad stuff? Or did I keep it there?[[User:Oak-leaf Knight]] 02:23, 2 June 2008 (UTC)
I don't know, but now, you have something on your talk page from TTE that might get YOU banned~Pokemaniac102 02:27, 2 June 2008 (UTC)
Force Fire requested that, not him... --Martonimos((Talk)) 02:28, 2 June 2008 (UTC)
Jesus Christ, Poli? I was thinking more along the lines of Anakin Skywalker. TTEchidna 02:29, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

Ash's Charizard

Can you please sort out the mess on Ash's Charizard page and try to find a source if the Pokémon is male or not. Big Johnno 19:26, 4 June 2008 (UTC)

Starting Out

Okay, I'm new here and I just joined up today. Um...a question? Why can't I edit my user page? BlueJirachi 16:24, 4 June 2008 (UTC)

Editing of userpages has been removed for all normal users for the time being. The message from the editor on the main page has some information on this. --FabuVinny |Talk Page| 18:26, 4 June 2008 (UTC)

Oh, okay. Thank you! ^_^ BlueJirachi 18:39, 4 June 2008 (UTC)

Squirtle

Hey! The Squirtle sprite on Ash's sprite was incorrect, so I temporarly reverted it back to the DP sprite. I created a new and improved sprite but have trouble uploading it. It keeps on saying: "The file is corrupt or has an incorrect extension. Please check the file and upload again." Taviource 19:28, 4 June 2008 (UTC) EDIT: Tons of people seem to like the Sprite alternation, but we can't have an incorrect sprite. The creator of the sprite also hasn't been here for a long while, so why don't we just change it. I still have trouble uploading the file, so I'm asking you for help, because I know that you had uploaded many files before, and after all, you are smart.Taviource 21:27, 4 June 2008 (UTC)

Nevermind, I've got it. - unsigned comment from Taviource (talkcontribs)

Um...

Just wondering, what EXACTLY are you changing on all those pages???--Taviource 00:24, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

He's adding the body styles found in the DPP Pokedex--KukiTalk 00:26, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, like if the Pokémon has a body with two arms or one with forlegs(arms),hind legs, and a tail. BlueJirachi 00:32, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

you want a hand Vinny? -- MAGNEDETH 02:01, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

There's still 300 to go, so if you want to hit the Gen III or Gen IV Pokémon, it would be appreciated. --FabuVinny |Talk Page| 15:13, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

I meant body structure, like do you walk on two legs or something along the lines like that. BlueJirachi 02:04, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, I saw it on the page. I get it now...oh...--Taviource 02:05, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

To be specific, I'm adding the data to Template:PokémonInfobox so that the form image appears on the table and the article is placed in the relevant category. --FabuVinny |Talk Page| 15:13, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
Where did you get the form images?--Taviource 15:14, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

I'm thinking of adding the body image you used for Gardevoir under Darkrai. When I checked that particular body style, he was classified under that category. BlueJirachi 18:34, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

To be more specific, I checked my Pokédex in my Diamond game. BlueJirachi 18:36, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
Yes, Darkrai goes in the Body12.png category. The obvious aim is for all the articles to include the data. If I do them all, Darkrai's will be one of the last to go in. --FabuVinny |Talk Page| 18:40, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

Fabu-Vinny, I added that to Darkrai just now. BlueJirachi 19:01, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

So u r doing the pokemon body form huh. That's going to take a while.--Diamaster 20:25, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
He's fine. He's got BlueJirachi helping him.--Taviource 20:26, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
I've got the first 386 done by myself already. Completion shouldn't take too much longer now. --FabuVinny |Talk Page| 20:31, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

Fabu-Vinny, I'm helping out, too.I'm working on Generation IV with the help of my Pokédex in my game. BlueJirachi 20:27, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

It's almost done. We only have very few Pokémon left.BlueJirachi 21:12, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

Scratch that. It's finished! BlueJirachi 21:14, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

Congratulations! You get the Staryu ribbon for ur efforts (instead of a gold star, considering Staryu is, well, a gold star)--KukiTalk 21:20, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

Thanks ^.^ (when I hit Giratina, my spine felt like it was going to crack but there were only a few Pokémon left) BlueJirachi 21:23, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

oh well, if you have any other repetitive tasks, im always willing to lend a hand. -- MAGNEDETH 22:12, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

Spoiler

Should I add a Spoilers Warning to Miracle Sea? It does contain pieces of the story like Manaphy was ill and the Gyarados. BlueJirachi 16:25, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

MD2 spoilers are a problem right now. (Is this the first real plot twist the franchise has had?) Miracle Sea isn't so bad but go ahead and add the warning to be on the safe side. --FabuVinny |Talk Page| 17:27, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

I'm having trouble inserting the template in there.BlueJirachi 17:46, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

Now it works! BlueJirachi 18:00, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

What's Going On?

I wanted to create Zero Isle West, but I'm prevented from saving it and I'm immediately logged out. What gives? BlueJirachi 15:22, 6 June 2008 (UTC)

If you don't tick "Remember my login on this computer" when you log in, then it will automatically log you out if you are inactive for a long period of time. Due to unrelated problems I've had in the past, I always use copy my work into a word processor when making large edits. --FabuVinny |Talk Page| 11:00, 7 June 2008 (UTC)

Ash Page: Edit conflict

I can understand why you disabled the editing when I looked at the history of the page. I'm the one who has been creating the sprites over the old ones with advice from Shiningpikablu252. I've been looking at the history for a while and finally understand the conflict. The conflict is between me, Pachirisulover12, Kuki, Diamaster, Sailor Earth and Kenji-girl on one side, and Force Fire on another. Force Fire never liked alternate sprites and kept on undoing all the work we were doing. I hope you could solve this problem.--Taviource 16:02, 7 June 2008 (UTC) Below is an updated list of the sprite supporters:


I'm on Taviource's side.--Diamaster 16:08, 7 June 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, we last saw Butterfree wearing , so Taviource's sprite must be in place of the normal Butterfree. The belt was also very well done!--KukiTalk 16:14, 7 June 2008 (UTC)

I support the alternate sprites Guardian of Earth 16:22, 7 June 2008 (UTC) They are awesome.

Have this discussion on Ash's talk page. I don't have the authority to force a decision and there isn't any easy way to solve the dispute. --FabuVinny |Talk Page| 17:53, 7 June 2008 (UTC)

New Users

How do you find the list of new users so you can welcome them this... - unsigned comment from Sailor Earth (talkcontribs)

Special:Log/newusers. Though they usually get the welcome message before their account creation drops off the recent changes. --FabuVinny |Talk Page| 14:12, 8 June 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.
  • Keep an eye on the Messages from the Editor on the main page, to stay informed on current events on Bulbapedia.
  • The word Pokémon is spelled with a capital P and an accented é. The é can be accessed by holding Alt and typing either 130 or 0233 on a Windows computer, and by using Option + e, then e again on a Mac. Otherwise, you can easily 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 capital B. The spelling "Pokéball" arises frequently, but is incorrect.
  • The word "you" and all forms of it should not be used on encyclopedic pages unless it is a quote from Pokémon or other media. Bulbapedia is an encyclopedia, not a walkthrough.
  • On talk pages, please sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).
  • 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.
  • For a future capture, release, trade, or evolution of a Pokémon belonging to a main character of the anime, please do not create or move the page to reflect your suspicions, even if they are shared by many others. Policy here is to wait until the episode in which the event happens takes place is aired, unless there is substantial evidence for the suspicion (such as Brock's Happiny being held in his arms).
  • Image uploading is done on Bulbagarden Archives, a separate wiki accessible through the toolbox in the sidebar. You will have to register separately for it, as well. This is done so that both Bulbapedia and Bulbanews have access to the images uploaded.
  • If you want to make a page about a character you made up, please create it at User:Fabu-Vinny/Archive 3/(name), not merely (name). Bulbapedia's main namespace is reserved for actual, official Pokémon, items, characters, and locations. Also, please try to make sure that subpages are not categorized by templates used within.
  • Having said this, please make sure that you do contribute adequately to the main namespace. Bulbapedia is not MySpace or Facebook.
  • 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! --Guardian of Earth 13:15, 8 June 2008 (UTC)

That's the second welcome message I've got. I'm an admin with almost 10,000 edits. What makes you people think I need it? --FabuVinny |Talk Page| 14:12, 8 June 2008 (UTC)

I just wanted you to see what I mean, plus it was funny when you did it to PL12. Guardian of Earth 14:18, 8 June 2008 (UTC)

One Question

Fabu-Vinny, how long are you going to be an admin? It's just a question and you've helped me out when I started. (You and TTEchidna.) BlueJirachi 21:45, 8 June 2008 (UTC)

I'll be an admin for as long as I am interested in helping the encyclopedia grow. --FabuVinny |Talk Page| 14:33, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

Deletion!

How do you delete a page? I'm asking because I accidently made a page that already exists with a different name! Help!BlueJirachiWishMaker 16:20, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

There's some way to redirect, or also the {{delete}} tag, I think.
On the topic, how do you redirect? I forgot. Gywall(Talk) 16:25, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
If it already exists, redirect one page to the other. (The coding is #REDIRECT [[Article name]].) Normal users can't delete pages but you can add the delete tag if you come across a page that needs it. --FabuVinny |Talk Page| 16:49, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

Forum Access

is there anything wrong with the forums' server? I can't register because of the dumb CAPTCHA. Boywonder01 00:51, 11 June 2008 (UTC)

CAPTCHA has nothing to do the server (which is the same one that Bulbawiki is on anyway.) Contact Archaic if you are having issues. --FabuVinny |Talk Page| 15:22, 11 June 2008 (UTC)
