hey!

why do you revert all my edits? Areas should be coloured by types.--My r6g4rdz, TEH GIGA-UBER-1337-HAX0R(Mr-ex777) 13:31, 1 November 2011 (UTC)

Meadow = Grass
Forest/Autumnyard = Bug
Tower = Dark
Hauntyard = Ghost
Factory = Steel
Lava = Fire
Cave = Rock
Desert = Ground
Glacier = Ice
Canyon = Flying
If you disagree with this, don't make the decision to change it yourself. Discuss why you disagree with it. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 22:03, 1 November 2011 (UTC)
[Edit] Nevermind. I'll change Towers to Psychic and World Axle levels to Dark. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 22:09, 1 November 2011 (UTC)
I explained it in my edit summary.--ForceFire

01:58, 2 November 2011 (UTC)

Hello

I'm having problems with adding content to my user page. On its page, for me the editing button is not there for some reason. And when I click "edit the top of the page" it tells me I don't have permission to edit on my page. It says I need to edit an article before I can edit my user page, I tried it, and it didn't work. --TheSilverBisharp 02:49, 20 November 2011 (UTC)

You have to make a considerable amount of edits on the mainspace to be able to edit your userpage.--ForceFire 02:54, 20 November 2011 (UTC)

What do you mean by "The mainspace?" --TheSilverBisharp 03:01, 20 November 2011 (UTC)

Anything without the prefix "User:". Eg. User:Force Fire is the Userspace, User talk:Force Fire is the talk page, everything else is the mainspace.--ForceFire 03:12, 20 November 2011 (UTC)

Userspace limits

Hi. I noticed you have been editing the User: namespace a lot recently. Please don't do it any more, though. Bulbapedia's Userspace policy restricts the amount you can edit your userpage: no more than three edits per day. This policy was instated to prevent strain on our server, and also to promote people helping out in the mainspace. Bulbapedia is an encyclopedia, after all, so help us out by contributing to some articles before coming back to your personal userpage. The more often you edit in the mainspace, the more you will be allowed to edit your userpage. Thanks! --ForceFire 04:16, 22 November 2011 (UTC)

You know we don't normally count stuff like prototype templates towards the limit (assuming they're not stuff like usertags)? Werdnae (talk) 05:02, 22 November 2011 (UTC)

Wha

So why did you revert my Hyper Fang edit? They're two completely separate visuals so the section should show them both, like with, say, every other move with differences between 4th gen versions. -- Trainer Hunter -- 08:48, 6 December 2011 (UTC)

I was assuming you was separating the two Gen IV images from the others not knowing that the DPPt image was not present before you edited it. Sorry.--ForceFire 09:13, 6 December 2011 (UTC)
Ah, a misunderstanding. Okay that's fine. Everyone makes mistakes, after all! Also I separated them because it looks kinda bad in 1280x1024. I really should bring that up with an admin at some point, though. -- Trainer Hunter -- 17:41, 6 December 2011 (UTC)

Howcome?

How come you got rid of the synopsis I was making on "Go!GO! LUDICOLO" you're just making the article the same as before.--Supermon 12:47, 9 December 2011 (UTC)

Umm, I didn't remove it. I just fixed a spelling error that you made. The edit you made is still there.--ForceFire 12:49, 9 December 2011 (UTC)

Nope! what I put on isn't there. If you thought I just added a sentence or too I was working on improving the WHOLE synopsis. But I forgive you.--Supermon 22:46, 9 December 2011 (UTC)

In an edit conflict, your text will appear in a window at the bottom of the screen. I'd say you've clicked save without realising and have therefore saved ForceFire's edit but lost your work. Its frustrating, I know, but there's nothing ForceFire could have done to prevent it. You'll just have to be more cautious next time - I recommend copying text into Word when doing major edits because that way you can't lose it. Toon Ganondorf (t c) 22:57, 9 December 2011 (UTC)
Also, use the preview button when making large scale edits so you don't get conflicted.--ForceFire 05:46, 10 December 2011 (UTC)

Yes

I played up to that point in Crystal recently, and then saved so I could see if the Everstone would make a difference in the dialogue, and the NPC reacts as he would if Haunter is traded without the stone. Antiyonder 10:30, 10 December 2011 (UTC)

Untitled

So what do I have to do then? I tried it, I don't know how.--- Pokémon Questions? -- 10:11, 24 February 2012 (UTC)

I actually have no idea what you're doing. To me, your just removing your comments by archiving.--ForceFire 10:15, 24 February 2012 (UTC)

I only wanted to clear my discussion, so tell me what to do. - Pokémon Questions? -- 10:17, 24 February 2012 (UTC)

Why do you want to clear your discussions, or rather, your talk page when there not much on it?--ForceFire 10:20, 24 February 2012 (UTC)

Because it looks better to me when clear as if only one uninteresting sentence is in it. I had never thought this would cause any problems. And as I already have 1 archieve page I thought I could put it easily in there but I don't know how.
Ah, by the way, perhaps you have any answers on my questions right there? Talk:Magnet Rise (move), Talk:Soak (move), Talk:Poison Touch (Ability)--- Pokémon Questions? -- 10:39, 24 February 2012 (UTC) And this one, too. Talk:Sticky Hold (Ability) --- Pokémon Questions? -- 10:50, 24 February 2012 (UTC)

Cranidos

What?You mean to tell me that Cranidos isn't a Pokémon ? The timeline specifically says 2 million years ago the first Pokémon appeared as dated by archaeology. It cleary states that. Therefore I want you to give me the best reason why shouldn't that be added to trivia.----DJWolfy 10:29, 25 February 2012 (UTC)

Cranidos may not be the first Pokémon, it may have just appeared through evolution and lived 100 million years ago. Just like how some dinosaurs appeared in the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods through evolution.--ForceFire 11:40, 25 February 2012 (UTC)
Well, since it said that Arceus created the Pokémon world them it implies the creation theory which obliterates the evolution theory.----DJWolfy 12:18, 25 February 2012 (UTC)
In that case, it could be said that Arceus created Cranidos 100 million years ago rather than merely 2 million years ago.--ForceFire 12:25, 25 February 2012 (UTC)
Well, if you want that not to be added to the trivia it's fine for me, I just wanted to clearify what the timeline implied. Guess the anime producers don't take into account previous episodes.----DJWolfy 13:09, 25 February 2012 (UTC)

Anime Pokémon evolving

You know, it would have been a lot easier to default to "still able to evolve" and only define "noevo" to "incap" where applicable. It's a bit late now though. --SnorlaxMonster 10:16, 11 March 2012 (UTC)

I know, I just didn't change the default back cause I had already tested it on Muk's page and when I wanted to change it back, I figured it was too late anyway.--ForceFire 10:21, 11 March 2012 (UTC)

A few pieces of advice

Just a few things to note:

  1. Before making changes to massively used templates, get opinions from others and approval of the idea from a higher staff member. (Editorial Board member in charge of the section the template is used in would be preferred.)
    • This also includes drastic changes in style, even on hardcoded tables. Just because you dislike what we have, doesn't mean others will agree with the way you want to reformat it.
  2. Always make the default result of a switch the more common result that will be used. In the case above, most new captures have the possibility of evolution & the default should have been the original template default.
  3. If you want to edit multiple sections of a single page, you should do so by editing the entire page. Rather than making 5 edits to one page.

Please keep these things in mind. Thanks, - Kogoro - Talk to me - 11:04, 11 March 2012 (UTC)

  1. My apologies. I just thought that a minor addition wouldn't be too much of a hassle, which I was then proven wrong. I also would've went to an Editorial Board but I wasn't sure who was on at the time so I could get quick opinions.
    • Like the above, I thought that because it was only minor and not everything about it was going to change that I shouldn't really get opinions. It was always going to have the same content and it was always going to look similar to what it was before.
  2. Okay. Speaking of default, would you want me to change it or is it all too late?
  3. That was just a matter of me rushing and not looking at what I was doing.
Again, my sincerest apologies and I will make sure this won't happen again.--ForceFire 12:56, 11 March 2012 (UTC)

Linking within an article/page

I've looked through the BP manual of style and I've Googled it, but I can't figure out how to place a link in an article that links directly to a specific section of that article, in the same way that the contents box on each page does. How do I do this? - unsigned comment from poikins 17:51, March 13, 2012‎

I'm not sure if we actually have a link template that allows that, but if you want to link to a specific section of an article just do this: [[Pikachu (Pokémon)#Trivia|like this]] which should link you to the trivia section of that article like this.--ForceFire 02:03, 14 March 2012 (UTC)

Welcome template

Hi, may I know why I need to keep it? Cheers, Haxorus 10:15, 14 March 2012 (UTC)

Second paragraph.--ForceFire 10:22, 14 March 2012 (UTC)
Oh, I get it. Bit off-tangent, but at the same time, I saw this on the page you showed me: "When you have finished creating your archive, remember to remove the redirect that will now be found on your talk page so that new discussions can take place." → I don't quite understand what this is trying to say here. Could you help me out here? Thanks! Cheers, Haxorus 10:28, 14 March 2012 (UTC)
Once you move your talk page to your archives, it will automatically become a redirect. Removing the redirect prevents people from being redirected to your archives if they want to start a discussion.--ForceFire 10:34, 14 March 2012 (UTC)
Oh, I think I get it. So in other words, after I'm done, I have to go back to my original talk page, where the moving has caused it to become a redirect to the archive page, and empty its contents for people to initiate a new discussion? And also preferably provide links to the archive? Cheers, Haxorus 11:00, 14 March 2012 (UTC)
Yes. Except remove "preferably" in that last sentence - link(s) to the archives are necessary so that people know they exist. Werdnae (talk) 18:28, 14 March 2012 (UTC)

Pokémon of the Day

Hey Force Fire, I really like the PotD box you have on your userpage. I was wondering if it's okay to use it? Thanks! - poikins 05:23, 16 March 2012 (UTC)

Sure, go for it.--ForceFire 05:34, 16 March 2012 (UTC)

Um, Force Fire, how do you put the PotD box on? I tried but I guess my userpage is really messed up. Thanks! Pringles 02:27, 29 March 2012 (UTC)

The box is located here. Just copy and paste it into your userpage. Hope that helps.--ForceFire 02:30, 29 March 2012 (UTC)

Thanks a ton! On the side, how did TTE get a Black and White Pokémon of the Day box? Do you have to specifically make it yourself, with certain Pokémon that you can choose? Or is there some universal template that you can edit to your liking? Pringles 03:26, 29 March 2012 (UTC)

Okay, I figured it out (somewhat). So I suppose you go to the part that says "mod 493" and change it to a limit of any number you want, so if you want to include Generation V Pokémon you make it "mod 649" and so on. Can you change the PotD specifically or is it pre-programmed? Thanks! Pringles 03:40, 29 March 2012 (UTC)

Exactly. And yes, you can change it.--ForceFire 03:53, 29 March 2012 (UTC)

So how do you specifically choose which Pokémon to present each day, if that's how I understood you? Or does it just randomly generate it?Pringles 00:53, 30 March 2012 (UTC)

It randomly chooses a Pokémon.--ForceFire 10:21, 31 March 2012 (UTC)

Oh... Thanks anyway. --Pringles 18:17, 31 March 2012 (UTC)

Oh yeah

Oh yeah, I forgot all about the preview button. Oops. ^^; Thanks for reminding me! I'll keep that in mind for next time! =) Anyway, I think my edit looks great now. I hope everyone likes it. --PokemonTrainerLisa 09:11, 20 March 2012 (UTC)

Reversions

Was there some sort of order to remove any edit I do? Because it seems I'm left out of any decisions and not told what I'm doing wrong based on the information I was handed to start with. All I'm trying to do is fix grammatical, spelling and other errors, remove untrue or unnotable statements, and get rid of redundancies. There's no debut for Pokemon debuts. We don't ask "Which Pokemon debuts debuted in this episode?" or "Is this their TV episode debut debut?"--SandmanDP 05:44, 27 March 2012 (UTC)

What? I reverted it because "Pokémon Debuts" and "TV debuts" are more specific than just "Pokémon" and "TV episode"--ForceFire 05:46, 27 March 2012 (UTC)
Sandman, please assume good faith and try to refrain from taking things like edit reversions as a personal attack. Keep it civil, please. 梅子 05:49, 27 March 2012 (UTC)
...Welp, on that note.
Keep on keepin' on, Force Fire. 梅子 05:51, 27 March 2012 (UTC)

Episode Box

How do you get the next episode box on the side of your userpage? My userpage got really messed up, so can you show me a template (that I can copy & paste) that I can just use and edit my usertags in? Every time I try to use text & a userbox, it doesn't work. Pringles 00:57, 30 March 2012 (UTC)

That can be found here. Just copy and paste and change the contents to your liking.--ForceFire 02:29, 30 March 2012 (UTC)

Thanks so much! Pringles 05:37, 31 March 2012 (UTC)

E-acute

How do you type in the accented "e"? I can't always copy and paste, and I heard there was a way to type it in. --Pringles 18:23, 31 March 2012 (UTC)

Hold down alt and press 0233 on the number pad.--ForceFire 02:21, 1 April 2012 (UTC)

Talk page

Hi, I would have appreciated it if you gave me a period of grace to reply to something that was directed to me. Please give me at least 30 minutes or an hour to reply next time. Masatoshitalk 07:19, 3 April 2012 (UTC)

Trivia for an Episode

So that I know for future reference, what type information about an episode can go underneath the trivia sub-section? I thought I knew, but it looks like I was wrong.

G50 07:40, 5 April 2012 (UTC)

I've compiled a list in my proposed policy. Take note that it is not official but can be taken into account.--ForceFire 07:44, 5 April 2012 (UTC)
Thank you, this is very helpful. G50 07:46, 5 April 2012 (UTC)

Bianca's Escavalier

With Bianca's Escavalier having been acquired in a trade with Professor Juniper, what do I put under location? Professor Juniper didn't specify where she obtained Karrablast. G50 09:25, 5 April 2012 (UTC)

Not sure what you mean since Escavalier doesn't have its own article. Even then, its not notable as it has only appeared in one episode.--ForceFire 09:32, 5 April 2012 (UTC)
Is it possible to create a page for Bianca's Escavalier, with one not existing right now?

G50 09:42, 5 April 2012 (UTC)

No. As I said, it isn't notable as it has only appeared in one episode.--ForceFire 09:43, 5 April 2012 (UTC)
I understand, thank you. G50 09:46, 5 April 2012 (UTC)

A bit of help

As you posted something on my talk page, I wondered if I could ask you a question. I was trying to create a new page for the Diamond and Pearl guide however it said I did not have permission. It says in the FAQ about me not being able to edit my userpage but I did not here anything about creating pages. Is it because it says Appendix: before it as I could edit an article. If I cannot create a page, can I ask a senior member to create it with a PLACEHOLDER and allow me to edit it or would that be against the rules. I hope you can read this and can help me. MajesticRayquaza 14:06, 6 April 2012 (UTC)

I believe you have to edit the main mainspace (anything without the User:, User talk:, Appendix: prefix) first before you can edit, or create for that matter, anything else.--ForceFire 14:24, 6 April 2012 (UTC)
Gah, I see you already edited an Appendix article. My apologies. Since I'm actually about to go, you can find more admins here, though not sure who's on.--ForceFire 14:28, 6 April 2012 (UTC)
New users aren't allowed to create pages because we've had issues in the past with bots, or users who are unfamiliar with our Manual of style, or Notability requirements. So we ask that new users edit for a bit to get to know their way around the site before they make a page. I hope this makes sense. Just edit for a bit, and then you'll be able to make your page. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 14:35, 6 April 2012 (UTC)

Why ?

Isn't it the same format and Pokémon ?----DJWolfy 08:22, 7 April 2012 (UTC)

Same Pokémon, yes. But it needs to be the correct file name (WTP EP053, WTP EP054 and so on). It's just for consistency. At least in my opinion.--ForceFire 10:23, 7 April 2012 (UTC)
Whatever, it doesn't bother me so I'll do as you wish. Btw, could you leave the international WTP to me ? I wanted to do it for a while now but I just didn't have the time for it.----DJWolfy 10:27, 7 April 2012 (UTC)
Sure go right ahead.--ForceFire 10:32, 7 April 2012 (UTC)
Thanks !----DJWolfy 10:37, 7 April 2012 (UTC)

Oops.

Hmmm... I have come to the conclusion that I might've accidentally deleted a user in project anime while entering my own. Hope I cleaned that up! :) PokemonMaster111 13:36, 7 April 2012 (UTC)

A user? A USER!? You deleted like, 10 of them. And no, I cleaned up your mess. Have you read the other warning I gave you?--ForceFire 13:43, 7 April 2012 (UTC)

What happened?

What's with all these sudden changes in redirections, relinkings and such ?----DJWolfy 15:03, 8 April 2012 (UTC)

We, meaning the admins, agreed that having <pokémon> (M<number>) follows the M<number> format we have now. So instead of Reshiram (movie 14) we relinked it to Reshiram (M14).--ForceFire 03:24, 9 April 2012 (UTC)
And why did this sudden change ? ----DJWolfy 07:01, 9 April 2012 (UTC)
For consistency.--ForceFire 07:02, 9 April 2012 (UTC)
Seems legit, well thanks for answering my inquiry.----DJWolfy 07:03, 9 April 2012 (UTC)

...

I'm not frustrated only with his edits, but with the majority of the new users' edits. Of course, I can not be a hypocrite and say that I am not a new user since I've joined this site on January this year, but still, God help me if I've made the mistakes some of them do. I admit I have done a lot of mistakes, but at least I've learned from them.----DJWolfy 08:48, 9 April 2012 (UTC)

Don't worry, I feel just as frustrated as you are with some new users (look above). But give them time to adapt to the wiki.--ForceFire 09:40, 9 April 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, but that time is mostly used to annoy other users who have to clean up their mess, but whatever. Btw, is there any way to upload several pictures at once ? I've just finished screenshooting the entire advanced WTP and it would be really convenient if I could just upload them all at once or at least 5 at once.----DJWolfy 09:59, 9 April 2012 (UTC)
My trick is to open up as many "upload file" page as you want, choose file and add information on each of them, and one by one upload them.--ForceFire 10:02, 9 April 2012 (UTC)
Go to Special:MultipleUpload on the archives and you can upload multiple files there. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 10:09, 9 April 2012 (UTC)
Ah. eh, what I get for not browsing the archives.--ForceFire 10:11, 9 April 2012 (UTC)
That's prety neat, thanks !----DJWolfy 10:13, 9 April 2012 (UTC)

I doesn't work, at least for me. It also has a major disadvantage since you can't edit each image's category and summary individually and you can't select them all at once, you can only select each one individually.----DJWolfy 10:33, 9 April 2012 (UTC)

BW075 summaries

From what I can see, TV Tokyo came out with three alternative summaries (two of which I'm still having translated). Which should I keep on there, or should I put all three and label them as alternate summaries? For Best Wishes, each episode recently has had 3 summaries, two with the program guide, and one with the original announcement. 태권도 합기도 03:35, 12 April 2012 (UTC)

Which one is the one we have now?--ForceFire 03:38, 12 April 2012 (UTC)
The first summary that came with the original announcement of the episode. 태권도 합기도 03:41, 12 April 2012 (UTC)
Then we use that.--ForceFire 03:49, 12 April 2012 (UTC)

Edit

Could you tell me the highest number of edits I have made in a day ? Or how can I look it up ?----DJWolfy 23:07, 12 April 2012 (UTC)

I'm certain we don't have anything that tracks down how many edits you make in a day. If you want to know how much edits you've made in a day, check your contribution and count them.--ForceFire 02:00, 13 April 2012 (UTC)
Sorry to butt in, but to get an approximate, you can go to your user contributions in the top right, they are sorted by date. And from there you can toggle with the options to ascertain roughly how many. --Spriteit 07:10, 13 April 2012 (UTC)
Seriously ? Then what was the reason behind making a 500 edit in a day user tag ? :)) ----DJWolfy 08:10, 13 April 2012 (UTC)
Trust me, you'll know if you're getting close to 500 edits in one day. If you make one edit per minute, it'd take 8 hours and twenty minutes non-stop to reach 500. Werdnae (talk) 08:29, 13 April 2012 (UTC)
I'm trusting your mathematical skills W. Well I didn't get to stay so long on editing Bulbapedia in one single day so na, I don't think I've reached that milestone.----DJWolfy 10:01, 13 April 2012 (UTC)

Pikachu's Ice Adventure

Do you know what the name of the attack Snover uses against the other Pokémon in the caves? It looks a lot like Ice Ball, but it cannot learn that. 태권도 합기도 13:27, 13 April 2012 (UTC)

I actually don't watch the Pikachu shorts, so I wouldn't have a clue.--ForceFire 13:30, 13 April 2012 (UTC)
Ice Shard - can learn it at lvl 26.----DJWolfy 13:33, 13 April 2012 (UTC)

PTC

Well, in about 15 minutes I'll have the images and then start uploading. But aside from adding them to their respective episodes, where would they fit on their PTC page ?----DJWolfy 11:38, 14 April 2012 (UTC)

| <episode>
| <question>
| <choice1>
| <choice2>
| <choice3>
| <image>
| <notes>
If that's what you mean.--ForceFire 11:47, 14 April 2012 (UTC)
Oh wait, I'm an idiot. I oversaw the image section, I forgot the template changed. 100px is it ?----DJWolfy 11:58, 14 April 2012 (UTC)
Yep.--ForceFire 12:01, 14 April 2012 (UTC)
Hey FF, the AG074 PTC is incorrect.I mean on the image it has choices between Heracross, Combusken and Nuzleaf. But instead of Nuzleaf's image, there is Beautifly. Here have a look. ----DJWolfy 12:30, 14 April 2012 (UTC)
That's actually an error made by 4kids I believe. In in AG074's error section.--ForceFire 12:40, 14 April 2012 (UTC)
So ? It's not the only error and should reflect what the TPC said, we can't alter it. We should put the exact one question and answer on the ptc page and note the error not modify it. If we were to do so, we could just write our own correct answers. Plus you can't cut out Heracross since it has its own image and name there.----DJWolfy 12:44, 14 April 2012 (UTC)
Huh? I'm confused. The beautifly/nuzleaf is the only error I see. As for the what the question actually asked, I'm trusting whoever typed it up is correct, or else you could just watch it a confirm it.--ForceFire 12:50, 14 April 2012 (UTC)

I meant, look on the TPC page at the respective question, Heracross is exchanged with Beautifly. When it should actuallly be Combusken, Heracross and Nuzleaf and over Nuzleaf's name should be a sprite of Beautifly's so it can reflect 4kids' error. And then the error wrote down on the notes section.----DJWolfy 12:59, 14 April 2012 (UTC)

Oh. Didn't think you were talking about the PTC page. That's actually my fault as, at the time, the Trainer's Choice wasn't added on AG074's trivia section. But since the errors section, which was there at the time, mentioned Nuzleaf, Beautifly and Combusken. So I assumed they were the choices. I probably forgot to update it when the TC got added onto the episode page.--ForceFire 13:05, 14 April 2012 (UTC)
Yeah you should, btw is there any way the page could pe protected for an hour so only I can edit it ? Untill I add the images so I don't encounter any edit conflicts, the same happened at WTP and it was very annoying.----DJWolfy 13:08, 14 April 2012 (UTC)
Ask Jo.--ForceFire 13:11, 14 April 2012 (UTC)
Oh wait scratch that, just add the {{inuse}} template. It won't protect the page, but at least it warns others that someone is in the middle of using it.--ForceFire 13:15, 14 April 2012 (UTC)
Thanks, in the meantime you should correct the above thing I told you about. I'll be editing the page in over 10 minutes.----DJWolfy 13:27, 14 April 2012 (UTC)
I already have.--ForceFire 13:31, 14 April 2012 (UTC)
What's "sic" ?----DJWolfy 13:34, 14 April 2012 (UTC)
Sic means that the quote is what is actual shown or read. So in AG074's case, Nuzleaf's name did appear under Beautifly's image and that it is not an error made by us.--ForceFire 13:38, 14 April 2012 (UTC)

You might wanna have a look at PTC's page, I don't know what happened with the coding or where did I go wrong.----DJWolfy 13:42, 14 April 2012 (UTC)

You don't need to add a pipe (|) into the coding, it's already there for you. You just need to add the image on the 2nd last pipe.--ForceFire 13:47, 14 April 2012 (UTC)
I thought I needed to add space between.----DJWolfy 13:52, 14 April 2012 (UTC)
Nope, there's no need for a space.--ForceFire 13:55, 14 April 2012 (UTC)

You should take a look at PTC's page on AG081 section. It's the same thing as the one with Nuzleaf under Beautifly. Also, please remove the inuse template while you're modifying that section.----DJWolfy 15:49, 14 April 2012 (UTC)

Nvm the template, just please have a look at AG081's section. I would modify it myself but you're better than me at explaining.----DJWolfy 16:10, 14 April 2012 (UTC)
Done.--ForceFire 06:21, 15 April 2012 (UTC)

Reporting

How do I report a bot? talk page 태권도 합기도 07:50, 17 April 2012 (UTC)

Try contacting an administrator, note the omission of junior, or an editorial board. They usually can spot the bot and block them, but none seem to be on atm.--ForceFire 07:57, 17 April 2012 (UTC)

PTC Category

So I was talking with Adyniz the other 2 days about a special category for PTC and he said it would be ok to make one. He said he needs to bring this issue up with Kogoro. But he's been kinda busy lately and I do not want to insist too much or to rush him. The problem is, I've got the last images but if there will be made a PTC Category after I upload them, then I will have to edit and change their category from Eyecatch to PTC. Since you wanted to do the PTC's in the 1st place, could you have a talk with Kogoro and then inform me if there will be a PTC category or not ? So as to know if I should continue with categorizing them as before or to wait till there will be a special category.----DJWolfy 09:17, 18 April 2012 (UTC)

Well ? Got any answer ?----DJWolfy 14:31, 18 April 2012 (UTC)

Johto Route 33, the image just doesn't look right. Check the file because there are two images for its history. Then you will see what I mean. --Wildgoosespeeder 05:17, 23 April 2012 (UTC)

Ummm...that is the only image in its history... ask the uploader if you have questions, in this case, dannyboy601.--ForceFire 06:06, 23 April 2012 (UTC)
Umm...wrong image. I'm talking about this image on the page:
Johto Route 33 GSC.png
That's why I flagged the page for {{Bad picture}}. --Wildgoosespeeder 06:33, 23 April 2012 (UTC)
Oh. You can easily re upload it by saving the previous file and upload it. I'll put it back in for now.--ForceFire 06:35, 23 April 2012 (UTC)
Yeah. I thought "Other generation maps: Cropped incorrectly" as the reason supplied for the {{Bad picture}} template was clear enough. I guess not. Thanks for putting it back. --Wildgoosespeeder 06:42, 23 April 2012 (UTC)
Specifically what part of the cropping do you feel is incorrect about it? - Kogoro - Talk to me - 06:47, 23 April 2012 (UTC)
No trees at the bottom of the image to show that there is a boundary. Top, left, and right have a boundary of some kind, but not the bottom. --Wildgoosespeeder 07:28, 23 April 2012 (UTC)

Diamond and Pearl Series

I'm confused, when reading the full line; I'm unsure of how it makes sense. 태권도 합기도 08:50, 5 May 2012 (UTC)

It is the shortest series with 191 episodes. Though it is the longest series to be set in one region (Original had Kanto, Orange Islands and Johto while Advance had Hoenn and Kanto).--ForceFire 08:54, 5 May 2012 (UTC)

Cheren

Since his page already says he is a gym leader and gives the basic badge, and BulbaNews has confirmed it themselves; could we take an exception to this rule and put him as giver of the Basic Badge? Kookamooka 14:08, 12 May 2012 (UTC)

After discussing with others we have agreed to put it off until we figure out the exact order and how we will change the badge template. So for now, please hold off further updates to the page.--ForceFire 14:20, 12 May 2012 (UTC)
Fair enough. Kookamooka 14:22, 12 May 2012 (UTC)

Typo

On the featured content on the main page there is a typo at the third bullet "In Generation II and HeartGold and SoulSilver, the mother would save the players money" it should be player's money not players because it shows possesion. ----DJWolfy 10:56, 13 May 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for the catch.--ForceFire 03:09, 27 May 2012 (UTC)

thank you

When i first wrote the other two kami's physiology, I made it a point to use him, he his ect instead of "it." However, since I drag my butt on writing Thundurus' physiology I kind of forgot. So thank you for that Yamitora1 04:01, 27 May 2012 (UTC)

PS... it would be Thundurus'. You see when there is already a 's' at the end, you just use the ' like my name is chris, so when I write a note saying something is mine I can write "Chris' Funyuns"
I use to get confused on that as well. Yamitora1 04:10, 27 May 2012 (UTC)

Tag, you're helping

We need help figuring out the horrible abomination that is Thundurus.

Instead of being like its other brethren, it has to be a punk and be different and some weird chimera of different animals.

So since you are familiar with their articles, I am tagging you to help in this horrible ordeal that will likely cause tempers to rise just as much as people's imaginations on what the Entei he looks like.

So roll your sleeves up and report to Thundurus' Talk page, because you've been drafted soldier. Yamitora1 02:56, 28 May 2012 (UTC)

"Cilan then challenged her to show what being a Gym Leader is about but subsequently lost and Skyla still though her method was fine." It looks like 'though' should be 'thought' in this sentence. G50 04:48, 6 June 2012 (UTC)

Featured Content Thursday

"He then met Ash, Cilan and Iris who agered to help find Zorua." That should be agreed instead of agered. G50 04:08, 7 June 2012 (UTC)

Featured Content Friday

"Unlike switching or moving position in a Triple Battle, rotating Pokémon is a free action, meaning both players may rotate and attack in the same turn." I think position is supposed to be plural here, I may be wrong

"Moves and Abilities that affect more than one Pokémon will only affect the opponents active Pokémon, and Abilities like Flower Gift will only activate if the user is active." opponents is missing an apostrophe to make it a possessive noun. G50 01:30, 8 June 2012 (UTC)

Standards

If you look at the pages for Bianca's Emboar and Minccino or Stephan's Sawk you can see that the qulity and quantity of the History sections are much greater than the rival pokemon articles before, though literary they are fine, the content in comparison is fairly poor. Furthermore, pokemon that have shown consitant personalities and/or iconic characteristics need a Personality and characteristics section. The incomplete template has a function and that is to alert users that a page is incompleate Diamond Lanturn CodeName: 05308 12:32, 11 June 2012 (UTC)

When you say "this is ridiculous" are you implying Sant's Delibird has no personality, the depth of the section finds somthing to say about many seemingly personalitiless pokemon, including Tracey's Venonat, to the extent where they'd need to be akin to Misty's Staryu and Starmie. However, as the page is under questionable notabilaty, perhaps we should leave out the template for that page Diamond Lanturn CodeName: 05308 13:07, 11 June 2012 (UTC)


I guess I was a bit rash then, but reading over it I think it could do with an update. As for Delibird, not actually sure about it having a P&C section. Did it show enough personality? I admit, I didn't see the short, so I can't really say yes or no. As for Misty's Staryu/Tracey's venonat, eh, they've appeared in plenty of episodes where you can pick up some personality.--ForceFire 13:17, 11 June 2012 (UTC)

Signature move

Well, I need an actual definition of signature move and ability. Before you told me that, my definition in signature is only somebody could do so. KyleRGiggs 08:56, 12 July 2012 (UTC)

The definition of a signature move is a move where only one Pokémon can learn it by level. Meaning if other Pokémon can learn it by level, TM/HM, breeding or tutor, it is not a signature move.--ForceFire 09:01, 12 July 2012 (UTC)
So that Volt Tackle is not a signature move, right? KyleRGiggs 09:09, 12 July 2012 (UTC)
It's the same evolutionary though.--ForceFire 09:11, 12 July 2012 (UTC)
However, those three moves could be only learned by the fully evolved starters from Kanto. KyleRGiggs 09:14, 12 July 2012 (UTC)
Yes. but it can now be learned by all fully evolved starters. Who are not of the same evolutionary line as with the case of Volt Tackle.--ForceFire 09:17, 12 July 2012 (UTC)
So it could be listed according to this criteria. Otherwise, all status of former signature move should be removed. KyleRGiggs 09:18, 12 July 2012 (UTC)
Unless it was truly a signature move. Meaning the Pokémon and, if any, it evolutionary line were the only Pokémon to learn the move at the time (no breeding/TM/Tutoring), such as Glare.--ForceFire 09:23, 12 July 2012 (UTC)
Force, breeding is actually fine. If it wasn't, then Teeter Dance never wouldn't be signature of Spinda. Marked +-+-+ (talk) 09:34, 12 July 2012 (UTC)
Ah ok. Then it's just tutor and TM that disqualifies a Signature move.--ForceFire 09:36, 12 July 2012 (UTC)
So should Thunderbolt being a Signature move in Yellow version? KyleRGiggs 09:45, 30 July 2012 (UTC)
No, as it was also a TM.--ForceFire 11:42, 30 July 2012 (UTC)

Hi, um what?

I've posted on Talk:Pokémon Black and White Versions about the edit of mine that you undid. The word 'prequel' is only applicable to works created after the original. Calling Pokémon Black and White Versions 'prequels' is an incorrect use of the English language.

Looks like Ht14 has done it. My advice yould be that you copy and paste the coding from previous sections (as they would have the switch too, and change the tables :). Also, you almost had the coding right you just forgot to add
{| width="100%" class="collapsible" |
Before everything else.--ForceFire 03:34, 18 July 2012 (UTC)

BW only DW exclusive moves

Sorry to bother you again, but do you know if there's anyway to show that the DW-only moves are only DW-only in BW(sorry if that sounds confusing)? I can't seem to figure out if there's anyway to add it. --It's Funktastic~! (talk) 03:49, 19 July 2012 (UTC)

There should be a section for it, for example on Staryu's page. Just copy and past the coding and change the content.--ForceFire 03:57, 19 July 2012 (UTC)
Also, if you want to say that it is only in BW, just add {{sup|BW}} next to {{pkmn|Dream World}}.--ForceFire 03:59, 19 July 2012 (UTC)
Well, I don't wanna say that it's only available in BW, just that it's only an exclusive move in BW. I'm guessing it'd be fine, but adding it next to the DW area makes it look like it's only available in BW's DW. Sorry if I'm being confusing or I'm misinterpreting you. --It's Funktastic~! (talk) 04:13, 19 July 2012 (UTC)
We already had moves that were Egg moves listed as DW-exclusive, so I don't see the issue with leaving tutor moves on there too without a note. If the Pokémon can learn them via leveling up only in B2W2 though... Let me know if there are any cases of this. --SnorlaxMonster 04:24, 19 July 2012 (UTC)
That makes the name kinda misleading doesn't it? I assumed that all the moves listed under it were DW exclusive until I actually looked at it. --It's Funktastic~! (talk) 04:28, 19 July 2012 (UTC)

Trainer's Choice

"Because" indicates causality. "As" indicates concurrency. For example, "I was late because my car wouldn't start," and "As I was making my way down the steps, I tripped and fell." The only other way "as" can be used is as "like," such as it was used in the middle of this sentence. "Due to" is the only acceptable alternative to "because" that isn't a wordy phrase. "Since" can only be used as a reference to a point in time or as an alternative to "because" only if both parties know the reason why. This is a wiki, so we don't assume, so "since" cannot be used as "because." I liked how you reworded some of the entries, but I disagree with replacing "No choice" with "None of the other choices" (If the question is "Which has the advantage?" and none have the advantage, "no choice" is appropriate) and "Swampert is the best choice" with "Swampert would be the better choice" (There are 3 choices and Swampert is the only one not weak to Psychic; hence it's the best). --IWannaBeTheVeryBest (talk) 15:28, 26 September 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for the lecture :D. I used "As" due to a lack of other words to use to substitute "because". I may have gotten overboard too as a few "because" is okay unless it isn't used in every single section (IIRC, using "because" a lot is unprofessional, at least what I heard).
I felt "none of the other choices" would be more specific" and the Swampert piece, good point.--ForceFire 02:12, 27 September 2012 (UTC)
It is, but since (ah? see what I did there) we have only two ways to say this, we should try to reword the entries like you have, or be left to repeatedly use "due to," "because," and horrendously wordy phrases like "as a result of."
Hmm, I get what you mean now. If we just finished saying that the "correct" answer is wrong, we should then refer to the others instead of the whole set, which is a break of context. I'd prefer to use "No other choice" just because I like conciseness. --IWannaBeTheVeryBest (talk) 13:18, 27 September 2012 (UTC)
I guess we could try rewording it. Though I'm not sure how else to reword it to be honest :/. Sticking with the mixture of "because, "due to" and "as" would be the easier route though.
"No other choice", for me, implies that there are an infinite number of choices while "none of the other choices" implies that there are a few other choices available.--ForceFire 13:48, 27 September 2012 (UTC)

You should still use the preview button to make sure there are no minor mistakes.--ForceFire 05:40, 12 October 2012 (UTC)

Any way to make clean-up reason more meaningful?

I'm trying to edit Floccesy Ranch so that it says it's incorrect, as me and at least one other user have noticed that the encounter rates in the area are severely wrong. It's already classed as a stub (but it's really more than just a stub) and I've added a note for clean-up (but the text on the banner it causes doesn't seem right for the reason I put it on there)

Is there a category, banner or some other flag that can be set on the page saying that the info needs verified and updated?

I think the Cleanup tag will do.--ForceFire 02:25, 15 October 2012 (UTC)

Community portal and Current events

The top sidebar links to those, but they don't exist. "Bulbapedia:Current events" could redirect to Current events, while "Community portal" could redirect somewhere else. --Abcboy (talk) 02:51, 1 November 2012 (UTC)

That one is the Mediawiki default sidebar. The other list that you may frequently be seeing is what we have changed it to, but it appears to be caching the old one in a few places - the default still displays from time to time. Werdnae (talk) 21:02, 1 November 2012 (UTC)
I noticed that like two seconds right after I saved that comment... oh well. --Abcboy (talk) 21:04, 1 November 2012 (UTC)

Move type template

Hello, I am Rocketslime_1_1, an admin from the Nintendo Wiki (Wikia).

I recently worked on making a template for said wiki that helps with the trainer party template, which automatically outputs the types of the pokemon moves and I plan on making a similar one for the category of the pokemon moves.

So I was wondering if Bulbapedia would be interested in these templates, as they would make it easier to fill out the Pokemon Trainer party templates and any other places that have a similar input function.

If Bulbapedia is interested in them I would be happy to provide them.

proof?

What do you mean by "proof", do you mean imdb? don't rely on them, their data isn't really that good when it comes to pokemon. also, not only is the voice clearly not goldish's, but also she's not in the movie at all. the only roll she could have done anyway would be the mother who reads the story. also, will you guies give me a means of proof i.e. an example? and IMDB is not it by the way, untill the data on that site gets improved majorly. thanks, and as always, happy editing.

Really Christian? really? You need clarification on what I mean by proof? Do you have any evidence that Million voice Jenny is what I mean. Also, I know IMDB isn't reliable, and I'm not saying that IMDB is reliable.--ForceFire 04:23, 27 November 2012 (UTC)

I've had conversatoins with hudson million (whether you do or don't believe it) and he says that she did it, and annie (friend of mine) read the credits, and there was absolutely no suzanne goldish. what source did you guies have to suggest that goldish did it? i'll have to take a look at it, unless goldish has an account here.

Also, there aren't that many sources for the 4kids VAs anyway, i've searched high and low on the internet. Christian Woods Happy Hunger games! mmkay? 04:54, 27 November 2012 (UTC)

Email Problems

I recently created my account and when I was asked to confirm my email address, I sent the confirmation email about a dozen times but never received it. However, when I changed my email address to something different, it was immediately confirmed without issue. Do certain email systems block Bulbapedia's email messages? That's the only explanation I can come up with. Aggron989 (talk) 00:03, 13 December 2012 (UTC)

I honestly have no idea why. Though you should bring up the problem here--ForceFire 02:19, 13 December 2012 (UTC)

Inappropriate talk page?

See this. Should they be blocked or let off with a warning? --Abcboy (talk) 03:22, 13 December 2012 (UTC)

Linkage request

Can you take care of Main Page no. 3 for the broken image links and images in the signatures? PattyMan 02:18, 22 December 2012 (UTC)

Done.--ForceFire 02:24, 22 December 2012 (UTC)
Thank you. PattyMan 02:27, 22 December 2012 (UTC)

Still not convinced its real. It looks like a hack to me. --ForceFire 13:05, 22 December 2012 (UTC)
Well, it looks like I'm really gullible. And also I just remembered the website I got the info from... was a creepypasta wiki. Ooops. :\
