Link Templates

You gotta use 'em. For a crash course, see this page. Thank you,--RexRacer -talk 06:18, 1 January 2009 (UTC)

Pokémon

Pokémon is always spelled with an accented e, found in the character palette below the edit screen or by typing Alt + 0233. --PAK Man Talk 21:33, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

Also...

Please categorize every new page you create. --PAK Man Talk 21:48, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

Link Templates

Please use link templates when linking to stuff such as Pokémon names, attacks, and the like. For example, {{p|Unown}} instead of just [[Unown]]. This is so you don't unintentionally link to a disambiguation page.

For a full crash course on link templates, look at the list of link templates. ----freezingCOLD (page, talk) 21:52, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

Again with the link templates. First, they use {{}}, not [[]]. Second, {{a}} is a link to abilities. Third, {{an|Latios}}, not [[Latios (anime)|Latios]].--freezingCOLD (page, talk) 22:05, 8 January 2009 (UTC)
And finally, actually link them! ht14 03:38, 27 April 2009 (UTC)
See the list of link templates and use them, please. --PsychicRider 22:14, 14 May 2009 (UTC)
Well it's nice that you are using the link templates now in your synopses, but don't forget the link template {{Ash}}. Ash can refer to several things, though Ash alone is a redirect to Ash Ketchum. Thanks, Kevzo8 04:11, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
Use {{OBP}} for parenthetical except anime, game, etc., such as Seel, though alt. text Seel is optional. Thanks, Kevzo8 04:55, 20 May 2009 (UTC)

Book Adaptations

You have them? Cool! Can you tell me something more about them? Do they have any more errors? Ah, anyway, how many Pokemon Book Adaptations do you have? --Maxim 15:45, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

Movie 4 Book

What name did the Movie 4 refer to Towa (Diana's Grandmother)? And the boat driver (he was called Mr. White in Japanese)? Oh, and Luna Carson's sister (the bus driver). What was her name in the book? --Maxim 11:50, 16 April 2009 (UTC)

Ah, so everything's as in Japanese version. Thanks for information. --Maxim 08:22, 19 April 2009 (UTC)

Categories...

Please categorize any new page you create. ht14 03:39, 27 April 2009 (UTC)

Mkay, episodes with no English title...

And by that I mean dub title. Don't put one. They're not put in the epicode prevnext, and they're not put in the pipe links. Just a style thing. TTEchidna 02:37, 14 May 2009 (UTC)

I'm pretty sure you're not supposed to insert trivia that compares characters to characters anywhere outside of Pokémon... --AT 22:57, 18 May 2009 (UTC)

Enough

Enough is enough. Go and see the list of link templates and use them, or else I will go to an admin and have you removed. You have been warned multiple times but you have failed to do so. --PsychicRider 01:00, 19 May 2009 (UTC)

I don't really understand them, or how to do the "alternate text" thing with them. And would you really get an admin to ban me, after all those incomplete plot synopsis I fixed up? Some people just can't find time to do those, you know.Ghostkaiba297 01:09, 19 May 2009 (UTC)
Yes I would. If you took some time to read them, they really aren't that hard to remember. Practice makes perfect, that's why they have preview buttons. --PsychicRider 01:14, 19 May 2009 (UTC)
sigh... all I ever try to do is help, but I never get anything except hell for it. The day I am appreciated is the day Team Rocket dies and the show ends...--- unsigned comment from Ghostkaiba297 (talkcontribs)
Good for you. Sign your comments. --PsychicRider 01:24, 19 May 2009 (UTC)
Your name is there. What you are doing is changing the time, which is not what we want. No time is better than the wrong time. — THE TROM — 02:23, 19 May 2009 (UTC)

Epicodes

Each episode has an epicode, which is just a way we order our episodes. The first episode is EP001, and so on. You must link to whatever the page is, and not the title. It stops a lot of problems from happening. Don't forget to do it. Thanks. MaverickNate 03:02, 19 May 2009 (UTC)

Episode titles must always be in italic. MaverickNate 03:08, 24 May 2009 (UTC)

Tail Whip

There is a difference between the move Tail Whip and hitting some with a tail. We have the same issue with Fly and Surf. Just because these Pokémon are hitting with their tails does not mean they are using Tail Whip. Tail Whip acts completely different. Please remember that. --ケンジガール 05:51, 23 May 2009 (UTC)

Well what DO Tail Whip acts do? That is, when used by a Pokemon besides Psyduck? Ghostkaiba297 20:04, 23 May 2009 (UTC)
How many different pages need this discussion be on? But anyway, I didn't know about anything that had happened with Fly and Surf, but that makes perfect sense. All Flying-type Pokémon do fly (or something of the sort in the case of the Hoppip evolutionary family), but that doesn't mean it is always using the move Fly. Same for Magikarp. Even though it can swim, that doesn't mean it is always using the move Surf (indeed, it can't learn Surf, nor any other HM). Kevin Y (talk) 21:01, 23 May 2009 (UTC)

Userspace edits

Slow down. You've been here long enough to understand our userspace policy. Thanks. — THE TROM — 02:04, 24 May 2009 (UTC)

The problem is that you are editing too much. You've made like 6 edits now. No more editing user space for today. --ケンジガール 02:12, 24 May 2009 (UTC)

Looking for a list of admins?

Here you go. Also, see this. --RexRacer 03:49, 24 May 2009 (UTC)

He said to stop analyzing a cartoon. He never said anything about adding it to the page. MaverickNate 04:29, 24 May 2009 (UTC)
He never said I couldn't add it... hey, it's ironic, we both sent messages to each other at the same time... but you already knew what he said? Ghostkaiba297 04:33, 24 May 2009 (UTC)
You don't need to be telling one of the admins who the EiC is, I happen to know that already. I also know that he never said to add it, and you misunderstood his surprisingly simple comment. MaverickNate 04:34, 24 May 2009 (UTC)
Dude, nobody hates you. you just weren't listening well enough and people were getting frustrated. MaverickNate 05:58, 24 May 2009 (UTC)

Ding! You got mail!

Time's up, bud. Out of your last fifty edits, four have been to the mainspace; a large number of the remainder to usertalk and talk spaces. You're really pushing the limit there and while some of them have been relevant discussions, some of the more recent ones have started to look excessive. Count this as your formal warning—don't bother to reply, just heed my message and get stuck into some mainspace editing. If some users can find over 2000 edits to make every month, I'm sure there is something for you. — THE TROM — 06:51, 24 May 2009 (UTC)
