Thank you, and have a good time editing here! ----Diby 17:26, 15 December 2008 (UTC)

Please

Slow down on editing the User: namespace. There are only three userspace edits allowed per day, and you have gone over the limit. Editing your userpage too much will lead to it being locked again. Instead of making multiple small edits, why not instead use the preview button (Alt + Shift + P) to check your edits before saving the page? Thank you. --PsychicRider 22:05, 21 December 2008 (UTC)

Oops, will be more careful. Jazzmoth 18:05, 25 December 2008 (UTC)

User Tags

When creating a custom tag, please remove the Other Tags category link. This stops your userpage being categorised as a user tag. Thank you. Gywall Talk 22:59, 24 December 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for the tip! Jazzmoth 23:16, 24 December 2008 (UTC)

<ref>

Unless you are providing a source for something really unlikely that has been requested on a talk page, or a source for a Pokémon name pronunciation, please do not include the <ref> code into any Bulbapedia page. This is because Pokémon is pretty easy to find sources to, as opposed to Wikipedia's vast collection of random articles. Thanks, --RexRacer -talk 03:58, 26 December 2008 (UTC)

That makes sense, I just didn't want to delete anything without an explicit reason.Jazzmoth 03:59, 26 December 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, it's one of those things that you need to lurk to figure out. Nothing in the MOS about it. I have really been liking your contributions, pretty good for a new user. Don't forget to check out the list of link templates. Have fun!--RexRacer -talk 04:04, 26 December 2008 (UTC)
Thanks! I've been having trouble re-finding that link every time I have trouble or doubts, so your post is probably more helpful than you knew. :D Jazzmoth 04:10, 26 December 2008 (UTC)

Personal images

Thank you. MaverickNate 00:12, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

Oy, okay, I didn't know. How could I be so silly. Let's get rid of Kirby_sprite.jpg. Thanks for the heads up! Jazzmoth 00:08, 4 January 2009 (UTC)
Also, please keep in mind that the image hosting sites like photobucket are a much better suited place to upload personal images than the archives are. MaverickNate 00:12, 4 January 2009 (UTC)
How do you link to external images? I've tried everything I could think of. Jazzmoth 00:13, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

Shiny Mew

I has a shiny Mew!--Pokelova 07:20, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

Unfortunately, my friend hacked it onto my game without telling me--Pokelova 21:52, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

Subpages

I'm having trouble finding info on how to make subpages, so I am going ahead the best I know how. If I mess up or need a warning, please accept my preemptive apology. Jazzmoth 03:13, 16 May 2009 (UTC)

Rumble Stages

Before you get too caught up in your project on the main Pokémon Rumble page, I'd like to remind you that each of the game's individual stages each have their own individual pages. Try not to cram too much stage-specific data on the game's main page; for example, most information specific to Silent Forest should go on that stage's page, most information specific to Windy Prairie should go on that stage's page, and so on and so forth for Rocky Cave, Fiery Furnace, Bright Beach, and Eternal Tower. An individual page for the Battle Royale also exists, meaning detailed information about those events can go there. I highly recommend that you take advantage of the fact that there's multiple pages devoted to the game. --Shiningpikablu252 01:10, 13 December 2009 (UTC)

Aw crap. How'd I miss that? Thanks. Jazzmoth 01:30, 13 December 2009 (UTC)

Rumble Tables

The 6 Rumble tables you made are barely informative... every Pokémon is listed as being in every rank, unless I am seriously misinterpreting it. If I'm wrong, just tell me, but otherwise I suggest you revert the articles to when they were just in a list. Sidnoea 05:24, 16 January 2010 (UTC)

I think the list format was uninformative, since one could not see which stages a particular Pokémon is present or absent. As I mentioned, reformatting the tables is a great idea (especially if they have the sort buttons), but I think that reverting to lists is messy and amateur. (Sorry for the double response, just in case!) Jazzmoth 05:42, 16 January 2010 (UTC)
Well, although the coding says otherwise, the letters all appear black. Here's an idea: put an X in the column if they are in that rank, and leave the column blank if they are not. Very simple, and does not require "browser coding". Not sure what the deal with that is =/ Sidnoea 05:55, 16 January 2010 (UTC)
Oh, dear. That's very strange, indeed. I don't have the time at the moment, but I will try to do it. Feel free to help out! Jazzmoth 05:58, 16 January 2010 (UTC)
I'll try to do one of them... but keep in mind that everything I touch breaks. Sidnoea 06:08, 16 January 2010 (UTC)
I found the problem... you can't use "green" and "white". You need to use hex. Don't worry, I'm gonna fix up these tables ;) Sidnoea 06:27, 16 January 2010 (UTC)
In most html, wiki, and bbc coding, you can. I find it strange that it can't be used here. What browser do you use? Jazzmoth 06:30, 16 January 2010 (UTC)

I'm using IE. Anyway, if you're still awake, see Fiery Furnace. Now we just need to make tables for the Advanced Mode Pokémon... another time. It's 2 AM ._.; I'm going to bed. Sidnoea 07:03, 16 January 2010 (UTC)

Oh no! Now they're all red and green. What version of IE are you using? IE is known for its incompatibility with certain things. I am going to revert the changes for now, but we can always go back and fix it later. Maybe we should move this discussion to the talk page there. Jazzmoth 15:37, 16 January 2010 (UTC)
...I know they are all red and green. That's the point. Red if they are not in that rank, green if they are. Simple. Idk what you were doing with blue, white, magenta, etc., but all you need are two colors: there, and not there. I'm putting it back up. Sidnoea 19:50, 16 January 2010 (UTC)
Those are the official colors of the game. Some people are colorblind and cannot see the difference between red and green. Let's not make this an edit war. I will come up with a solution, just give me a little time, please. Thanks! Jazzmoth 19:56, 16 January 2010 (UTC)
...Official colors of the game? What are you talking about? Either a Pokémon is present in that rank, or they are not. I have the game, and I have no clue what you are talking about "official colors." They are there, or they are not there. Seems pretty simple to me. Sidnoea 20:41, 16 January 2010 (UTC)
Each stage has a different color. The colors are consistent with the letter of the stage. This is the case in ranks for the different Ranger games, and now Pokémon Rumble. I plan on creating a template to better suit these pages, similar to the templates which show the Pokémon present and absent in different versions of the games (like Red (Green), Blue, Yellow). For now, I think we should be patient and stop editing the lists, since we don't want to waste our time with tables that will be replaced. Jazzmoth 20:48, 16 January 2010 (UTC)
Are you talking about how the terminal changes color with the ranks? I still don't get it. In Windy Prairie, the code for Pidgeot has four different colors in it. How on earth do four different colors correspond? And only one of them is white! It doesn't make sense. Sidnoea 20:52, 16 January 2010 (UTC)

If only one letter is white, then that's the only one without the Pokémon present. I'm going to stop this conversation for now, since it won't be relevant after I make the templates. Please be patient with me. Jazzmoth 20:54, 16 January 2010 (UTC)

...But that's not even accurate! It appears in two of the stages, but only one of the ones where he doesn't appear is white. I think all of these crazy colors, which don't even appear, put a lot of faith into the reader. I hope that template of yours makes more sense. Sidnoea 20:57, 16 January 2010 (UTC)

Project Sidegames

Werdnea became the leader of the project, and it has actually been up and running for a while now. Just letting you know, since you said to do so on my talk page. Flyingtypefan 18:42, 26 July 2010 (UTC)

Thanks! ʝɑzzmotɦ ❝❞ 19:40, 26 July 2010 (UTC)

Sorry...

Hey. Um, looking back at January, I kinda realize what an immature jerk I was being, so I just wanted to say sorry. I also saw the Rumble pages; they look great now! So, yeah, see you around I guess. Sidnoea 15:15, 12 August 2010 (UTC)

No problem. Glad you were invested in the pages! ʝɑzzmotɦ ❝❞ 18:16, 12 August 2010 (UTC)

Just Letting You Know

Your faverites section says Butterfree is a Bug/Psychic type. The aactual type combination is Bug/Flying. EpicShadow 18:27, 1 September 2010 (UTC)

Good catch. ʝɑzzmotɦ ❝❞ 23:21, 1 September 2010 (UTC)
You're welcome, we can't have the userspace looking sloppy it sends just as bad a message as the mainspace. EpicShadow 01:50, 2 September 2010 (UTC)
