Hi

Hi Jello. Could you please protect my archived Talk page please? Here is the link: User talk: Cool469/archive 1.

Thank you. Cool469* 21:35, 13 November 2010 (UTC)

Signature

Im nearly done changing my Signature. I'm just getting the color in it. Cool469talk 22:05, 13 November 2010 (UTC)

Ok. I'm done now. It links to my User and Talk page. Cool469talk 22:05, 13 November 2010 (UTC)

Good job :P I see you copied and modified my signature. Jellotalk 22:06, 13 November 2010 (UTC)
Is that alright? I'll change it if you want. Cool469talk 22:10, 13 November 2010 (UTC)
It's fine, just use different colours, lol. Jellotalk 22:12, 13 November 2010 (UTC)

Archives

Can you delete this file? I accidentally uploaded it under wrong name. Marked +-+-+ 09:28, 14 November 2010 (UTC)

Regarding becoming a user...

So, I'm guessing that the ability to have a user page here on the Archives isn't determined by number of uploads. : ) Is it time-based, then? «hexagonTHEORY» 09:37, 16 November 2010 (UTC)

Everyone is able to create a userpage on the Archives, but it is preferred if the main user page is on Bulbapedia. The ability to create a user page on Bulbapedia is different. It's determined by a (secret) number of edits and time, I think. Jellotalk 01:57, 17 November 2010 (UTC)

Rule breaker

I came across this message in the recent changes. I'm no master of Spanish but I know what 'puta' means and using a translator, I think this message falls under the harassment policy. So I guess do what you admins do best and unleash your Judgement. Thanks. =) Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 22:41, 18 November 2010 (UTC)

Thank you, Jo. I don't know any Spanish either, but I do know that puta is a bad word. :D Jellotalk 22:48, 18 November 2010 (UTC)
It wasn't hidden fully? Bluesun 23:05, 18 November 2010 (UTC)
Thanks, I got it now hopefully. Jellotalk 23:08, 18 November 2010 (UTC)

Rotational battles

Celibi25: Sorry, Lets team up everyone and make the article Rotational battle a reality.

Well, articles should at least be created first with more than just a sentence. Do some research to get your facts straight. Use the preview button to fix your mistakes. Make sure the article meets Bulbapedia's style and guidelines. You should have read the Bulbapedia:Manual of Style and you should use proper link templates and things like that. It's hard to learn all this at once, so maybe should steer away from creating articles and do some minor edits around the site to get a hang of things first. Jellotalk 01:29, 19 November 2010 (UTC)

Celibi25: Done and done, I can't belive that nobody thought to incude the fact that Charizard has the most hybrid glitch pokemon. By the way, what are Admins?

My Userpage

I have been banned from editing my userpage for editing it too much. But I would like to know four things:

1. Even though I'm banned [not permanantly], can I still do pages like Zekasaur/Teams or /Sandbox etc.?
2. If so, how do I make them? Is it like a normal page or...?
3. On my userpage it says that in my FireRed game, I have a Blastoise level 94. But I actually have one level 62. Did I do this or did someone else? 4. What happened to the single enter? Now I have to do either <br> or two enters to get a new line! (This is also happening on Bulbanews and on the archives.

Please answer back soon! - unsigned comment from Zekasaur (talkcontribs)

To answer your question simply, once you have been banned from editing your user page, then you are not allowed to edit any of your pages, which includes Zekasaur/Teams or your Sandbox. If you do get your privileges back, you can create a new page by adding /Teams add the end of your user page. For the third one, that's too bad. Wait until you are allowed to edit again, it's not important. As for the last one, I don't know. I always used two enters or a <br> to get a new line. Also, creating a user page on the Archives counts as an evasion of the user page policy, especially when your privilege has been taken away here. So, just forget about your user page for a while and go edit something else. Jellotalk 07:15, 20 November 2010 (UTC)
Just one more thing... Does editing at bulbanews or the archives help me regain my editing abilities on the userspace? —♫Zekasaur♫ 07:22, 20 November 2010 (UTC)
You can help on those wikis but there are no promises if that will get you back your privileges. Technically those are different wikis. You have to earn back your privilege here, by making edits here. Jellotalk 07:29, 20 November 2010 (UTC)

Userpage help

On my userpage I have a tag that says "This user loves spring" However when I try to add anything under the template formula it shows up on in the green box. Can you help me fix this? Pokemaster97 03:13, 21 November 2010 (UTC)

Problem fixed. You forgot to add a |} to the end, which closes the template. たかはり 03:17, 21 November 2010 (UTC)
Thank you! Pokemaster97 03:20, 21 November 2010 (UTC)

Move image tagging

Here's a file http://archives.bulbagarden.net/wiki/File:FRLGBind.PNG that's quite interesting, in my opinion.

The older revision of this image is FRLG, but the new version is Platinum. How would I structure the move tag to request moving the new one to Bind IV.png and the old one to Bind III.png?

Thanks! --+ Joeshie + (is Mæ!) 02:23, 23 November 2010 (UTC)

I totally thought this was the archives. I won't be reposting it there though. --+ Joeshie + (is Mæ!) 02:24, 23 November 2010 (UTC)
Just save the new version, and upload it as Bind IV.png. I'll deal with the older revision. Also, my Archives userpage redirects here, sorry for the confusion! Jellotalk 02:27, 23 November 2010 (UTC)
Ohh okay. Also, I left a message on Nate's talk page but I haven't got a reply yet. I couldn't get the Mv template to work as seen here: http://archives.bulbagarden.net/wiki/File:Razor_Wind_V.png. Can you help me? :D! --+ Joeshie + (is Mæ!) 02:38, 23 November 2010 (UTC)
Sure thing. For that template, you have to subst: it, so it would be {{subst:Mv|Swellow|Razor Wind|Absol|bw}}. Jellotalk 02:41, 23 November 2010 (UTC)
Thank you so much :D! --+ Joeshie + (is Mæ!) 02:43, 23 November 2010 (UTC)

Guardian Signs Mini Series

Hi Jello sorry to bother you again :) I posted a concern on the pokémon Ranger Guardian signs talk page but, no one responded. I said that there is a 7-10 minuet mini series on Pokémon.com called Pokémon Ranger Guardian signs. I noticed there is not an article about it on the Wiki. I wuld create it myself, but I don't know how to make the episode information section. Can you help with this? Pokemaster97 22:41, 26 November 2010 (UTC)

It's already on here actually, and it's not a mini series it's just two episodes (one in the English Version) here they are SS022 and SS023 Ataro 23:02, 26 November 2010 (UTC)
Yep. Jellotalk 23:42, 26 November 2010 (UTC)
Oh I was a little confused because it wasn't on the Pokémon Ranger Disambunction page and I didn't think to look for a special episode. Can I add it to the disamb. page? Pokemaster97 17:46, 27 November 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, go ahead. Jellotalk 17:59, 27 November 2010 (UTC)
The deed is done :) Pokemaster97 23:14, 27 November 2010 (UTC)

The old learnset templates

Hi Jello, about the old learnset templates, do they still need updating?Shadow Walker 22:39, 27 November 2010 (UTC)

According to the category, there are still 27 pages left to do. Jellotalk 22:43, 27 November 2010 (UTC)

Ok thanks. I just needed to know just in case that was out of date.Shadow Walker 23:09, 27 November 2010 (UTC)

Brendan Walk Down sprite

I'm pretty sure your the one I should talk to about this. So I came upon this file a:File:Brendanwalkdown.gif and I think the quality isn't really up to the standards on here. I don't know if this file is even supposed to be here or not. --Bee § Bwakka♂ (meh talk) 23:33, 27 November 2010 (UTC)

Hmm that shouldn't actually be categorized like it is right now. It needs a personal image tag since it's only being used by a user here. Thanks for bringing it up. Jellotalk 23:36, 27 November 2010 (UTC)

Userpage?

Another Question, how do I get a userpage? Pokémad (Shadow Walker) 17:37, 28 November 2010 (UTC)

See your talkpage for your answer. --JediKnightDTV 18:43, 28 November 2010 (UTC)

Regarding the comment

This user said some mean comments after undoing this edit. PattyMan 04:23, 1 December 2010 (UTC)

It wasn't directed at anyone though, he's just frustrated about how the recent moves work right now. Recent moves are only considered recent if the the moves were used in the last 10 episodes, and because Best Wishes has just begun, all moves apply currently, so he was correct to undo your edit. Jellotalk 05:28, 1 December 2010 (UTC)
Are you sure it was a he? PattyMan 05:51, 1 December 2010 (UTC)
Yes, I am sure that user is a he, I have him on AIM, lol. Jellotalk 05:52, 1 December 2010 (UTC)

Old game stuff, 1 or 4 years old

Do we need those pokemon graphics from the poketch? I have a few.--Pika3323 23:43, 1 December 2010 (UTC)

I don't believe so, this page pretty much covers everything. If you can find a use for it, let me know. Jellotalk 23:50, 1 December 2010 (UTC)
That ominous Pikachu... It needs a purpose. See?!
Poketch_pikachu.png
I need a new signature.--Pika3323 20:06, 2 December 2010 (UTC)

I'm just aksing you something

I was reading the recent changes and it said you deleted a user because the server was full and the content was Delete. What does it mean by the server is full? Cool469talk 05:16, 2 December 2010 (UTC)

It's a joke. Jellotalk 05:38, 2 December 2010 (UTC)

UnFair...

Umm... You recently deleted one of my pages right when I made it. I am dissapointed, and will not accept you deleting MY stuff and ME having to accept it. Sure, I don't want to mess up the website, but I don't know everything! I'm NOT a scientist!!! I don't understand and will not lose, THE GUY THAT SHOULDN'T BE MESSED WITH! --Alkamota 18:56, 4 December 2010 (UTC)

Your page was personal content. If you had bothered to read your talk page, you would realize that it belongs on your user page, and not in the mainspace where the rest of Bulbapedia's encyclopedia content is. Please go read the rules again before you come to me and complain about how unfair I am being. Jellotalk 19:01, 4 December 2010 (UTC)
" Someone just deleted the information I entered when an episode aired in Australia for DP108." Pika911 04:10, 23 December 2010 (UTC)
That's because we only log the original Japanese airing and the original English dub airing, not Australian airings. Also new sections go at the bottom of the talk page please. たかはり 05:23, 23 December 2010 (UTC)

Then How come UK airings are put on some episode airings.Pika911 04:35, 10 January 2011 (UTC)

That's only because they aired before they did in the US. That's the only exception. --ケンジガール 04:38, 10 January 2011 (UTC)

???

No one ought to just delete pages. Shouldn't you tell the person about the mistake BEFORE you delete it? Not even at the same time. Not after. I'm not mad about the page thing anymore, but PLEASE make a few edits of when the site is deleted. --Alkamota 19:05, 4 December 2010 (UTC)

I have the right to delete any content that violates the policies and rules on this wiki. For you information, I had also left a message on your talk page right after I had deleted it, explaining why. You seem to be ignoring that fact. Most users understand that they should not to recreate a page after it has been deleted. Especially if it is personal content. This is a wiki about Pokémon, not a social networking site. I can't help you if you don't read the welcome template that we place for all users on their talk pages that links to all our policies. You should try reading through it get familiar with things. Hopefully you'll understand then. Thanks. Jellotalk 19:16, 4 December 2010 (UTC)

don't

Don't think the content on my page "don't mess with what I put on here" was put there for nothing. The right you have was given to the WRONG person. Why do I say something so cruel like that? Because you're using that right as an advantage to remove other people's stuff. That's what I think. The rules? I made a few. ^ up there. --Alkamota 19:33, 4 December 2010 (UTC)

Don't forget the code of conduct!! If you don't calm down, you may get blocked! Gliscorguy54 19:36, 4 December 2010 (UTC)
Gliscorguy is right. You're still not understanding things are you? You do not own this site. I am not taking advantage of anything. I am enforcing the rules here. Your stuff is the in the wrong place. If you don't want it removed, place it in the correct place the first time. But of course you can't do that because you are not able to create a userpage just yet, like I have explained on your talk page and have reminded you, so many times. This is a wiki about Pokémon, not a myspace or facebook account. Your rules cannot cancel out the rules on this wiki. I suggest you go read our rules before you start enforcing your own. Thanks. Jellotalk 19:57, 4 December 2010 (UTC)

... OK, I surrendur... But, there's not really anything to edit. jediknight or whatever his name was told me about those people doing enough editing to get a userpage, and then stopped editing. I think they did at least enough editing to make there nothing left to say. The only thing I put was on pokemon red and blue about the japanese release.(it looks a bit misplaced). So, I surrendur. - unsigned comment from Alkamota (talkcontribs)

There is always, always something to edit, or expand. We have many articles that are incomplete or stubs. You could also go around fixing spelling mistakes or small edits like that. Jellotalk 21:29, 7 December 2010 (UTC)

To Undo or Not To Undo?

Should we undo the edits PAK Man made to the Pokémon pages until a descision has been made? --Landfish7 00:18, 5 December 2010 (UTC)

No, just leave them alone for now. Jellotalk 00:19, 5 December 2010 (UTC)

An image edit.

Excuse me, I'm a terribly-new user, and I'm still iffy on Wikilanguage.

Today, I came across the Metapod page, and noted a bit of an image issue, where the accepted image was correct, but terribly small. In contrast, another image was suggested of ample size, but of incorrect colours. Perhaps a compromise can be met that will benefit us all. I took the liberty of editing the colours of the larger image, in order to match the smaller image. I believe that is enough to consider the image appropriate for use, but of course, not only did I note an user needs permission, I also would have no idea as to how one could... er. Change it. Heheheh. ; m ;

[1] Here is the image, uploaded on my Tinypic account. Could this perhaps solve the image problem?

Erufuun 17:09, 5 December 2010 (UTC)

  • Thanks. I believe I've done something wrong. I added the image into the archives, but I'm unaware as to how to place the image in the article itself. - Erufuun 08:17, 6 December 2010 (UTC)
Don't worry about it. I moved your image to the correct name, so all it has to do is update on this side. Jellotalk 08:33, 6 December 2010 (UTC)

Hello

Hello, Jello. My name is The Pokémon Master. I joined Bulbapedia a few days ago and really want to get involved with things here. I'm all ready familiar with Wiki coding/formatting, since I am a moderator on the Kingdom Hearts Wikia. I do have one question, however, and I'd appreciate an answer if you are able to provide it. I don't know how familiar you are with Template:XmasInuse, but for some reason, the coding doesn't appear to be working as it should (see Kamitsure and compare it to the template page as an example). If you know how to fix it, please do so, or, if nothing is wrong, please teach me how to use it properly. Sorry to sound so demanding and to bother you, by the way. Enjoy the rest of your day! - The Pokémon Master 17:49, 5 December 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, I'm looking at it right now to come up with a fix. You're not doing anything wrong. Jellotalk 17:51, 5 December 2010 (UTC)

All right, thanks. - The Pokémon Master 17:53, 5 December 2010 (UTC)

PLEASE!!!

Find me something to help with!!! I feel like I made to many edits on my user page lately. So, what can I help with?--Pika3323 21:58, 5 December 2010 (UTC)

There are always things to edit. Try: Category:Stubs, Category:Articles needing improvement, Special:WantedPages Jellotalk 22:01, 5 December 2010 (UTC)
I've looked through them, nothing... should there be pages about guide books? (The ones made by nintendo telling you how to beat the game.--Pika3323 12:22, 6 December 2010 (UTC)
You can try looking for something here. Pikiwyn talk 12:58, 6 December 2010 (UTC)
Ah, so that's where they are. Can't searching something here be more like google?--Pika3323 19:49, 6 December 2010 (UTC)
Sift through the categories, that's your best bet at finding something. Those categories I gave you above are huge, I find it hard to believe you can't edit anything from there. Also, when you are searching pressing the search button instead of the go button might give you some results. You should try to edit an area that you're good at. Jellotalk 19:52, 6 December 2010 (UTC)
SO... what is this? "Magmar (02-025" they are the most common in Special:WantedPages--Pika3323 12:01, 7 December 2010 (UTC)
They're Battrio pages. Umeko is the one who's done pretty much all of them. So it would be best to leave it to her. Jellotalk 17:25, 7 December 2010 (UTC)

Unova Cities/Towns

Shouldn't we leave the bad picture tag on those articles since the articles should have a full city view like the other regions? --HoennMaster 02:59, 6 December 2010 (UTC)

That's really hard to do, there is currently no way of getting flat, full view maps of the cities. We're going to have to use screenshots for now. Jellotalk 03:24, 6 December 2010 (UTC)

Template question

This feels a bit like deja vu, but I was wondering what the guide lines were for making a template main spaced? Is it the same as user tag templates where at least two admins need to verify it? I've seen you and others work on templates then once they were satisfactory, they were main spaced. I wasn't able to find anything in the rules about it, just about testing the template, so I figured I'd ask you. :) Thanks!♥ Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 04:02, 7 December 2010 (UTC)

There's nothing stopping you from creating a template in the template namespace. To be safe, you should ask an admin about it. Most of the time, users make and test out the templates in their userspace and show the finished product to an admin, and once they approve it, it gets mainspaced. Jellotalk 04:05, 7 December 2010 (UTC)
Well, alright then. Earlier I happened to make a test template under my user space for the zones in the PokéPark, but I wanted to make sure it was good enough to be added to the main space. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 04:11, 7 December 2010 (UTC)
It looks good to me, though it needs a bit of tweaking to get the roundy corners appear nicely on the bottom entries. You can mainspace it if you'd like and we can make changes later if we need to. Great job as always :D Jellotalk 04:16, 7 December 2010 (UTC)
Thanks, Jello. I attempted what you suggested but when editing the "connected zones" section I was unsuccessful at making zone 1 un-roundy when there are two zones listed, and I've reached my user space limit for the day (at least in my time zone). Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 04:34, 7 December 2010 (UTC)
No problem. If it's for the mainspace, don't worry about going over the limit, there's leniency for that. Feel free to edit until you are satisfied with it. No need to ask me either when you're ready to move the template either, I trust you. :D Jellotalk 04:43, 7 December 2010 (UTC)
D'aw, thanks Jello. I really appreciate all the effort you've put into helping me. :) I'll get to work on the template. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 04:55, 7 December 2010 (UTC)

Autoconfirm?

Just wondering, how do you know when you have become autoconfirmed? Will you be sent a message? Thanks Iamsam800 01:43, 8 December 2010 (UTC)

When you're able to create your user page, that's when you will know. I don't believe there are any notifications when the system autoconfirms you. Jellotalk 01:56, 8 December 2010 (UTC)

No color template

I wanted to use it for entries for this template, with the no color templates, if the number of boxes is more than the number of Pokémon in the row then the boxes won't show, which looks much better than empty blocks, and I cant use #ffffff because the template doesn't allow that. Pikiwyn talk 18:41, 8 December 2010 (UTC)

If it's only being used on one page then there is no point creating a useless template for it, especially for aesthetic reasons This page uses the same kind of template and it looks fine. Jellotalk 18:46, 8 December 2010 (UTC)
Ok, just thought it would look better. Pikiwyn talk 18:59, 8 December 2010 (UTC)
I've got a better idea, I've slightly modified the template here so that it shows white when there is no Pokémon, what do you think? Pikiwyn talk 00:07, 9 December 2010 (UTC)
To be honest, I like the black and white version better. The white space makes it look awkward. Jellotalk 00:39, 9 December 2010 (UTC)
Ok that's fine too, also I want an admins opinion on if this could work, for the list of Pokémon by height page I was thinking it might be useful if under each foot heading there could be a picture of a Pokémon of that size compared to a human, from the size comparison found in the Pokédex. Pikiwyn talk 01:04, 9 December 2010 (UTC)
That might...crowd the page a bit, I don't think it's reasonable to have it there. I do remember TTE working on something similar in his userspace but it didn't work out. Jellotalk 01:06, 9 December 2010 (UTC)
I thought it might crowd the page too, I'm just trying to come up with something that might help me with the Christmas Improvement Drive. Pikiwyn talk 01:10, 9 December 2010 (UTC)

Pokemon Sprites???

I know it seems strange, but I have a question. A while ago, the website said not to get information from other sites. How does anyone get a Pokemon sprite? Especially a moving one. OK if no answer.--ShinyEevee 23:07, 8 December 2010 (UTC)

Veekun has sprites. It's okay to take sprites from there. The moving ones have to be animated by someone. Jellotalk 23:10, 8 December 2010 (UTC)

Oh. Well, I'm really surprised. It said other sites are NOT reliable sources of information. ?????:(--ShinyEevee 23:15, 8 December 2010 (UTC)

We know Veekun. He takes stuff from us all the time and we do the same thing. That's the only exception to this rule. Jellotalk 23:29, 8 December 2010 (UTC)

WWWAJG

is my account still going to be deleted? - unsigned comment from WWWAJG (talkcontribs)

No, it's not. Just don't spam pages, okay? It's better for you if you don't edit until you're a bit mature. You're free to browse the site though. Remember to sign your comments on talk pages with: ~~~~ You keep forgetting to do that! Also, it's a good idea to do what people tell you to do. So make sure you listen.

OK?

I made the squirtle (pokemon pal packs) page, but only put the name on it. is that ok???--ShinyEevee 23:37, 8 December 2010 (UTC)

Nope. You should not be creating one word articles. Creating an article should take a lot more effort. You have to make sure the format is correct and get in as much information in as possible before it gets deleted for being a bad article. Jellotalk 23:39, 8 December 2010 (UTC)
Oh. I was getting tired of seeing the website look weak with all of its needed articles. - unsigned comment from ShinyEevee (talkcontribs)

Sorry, I don't have the ability to change names. You might want to go to MAGNEDETH and ask him. If he's not available, then Kogoro might be of some help. Jellotalk 18:33, 9 December 2010 (UTC)

Template

Hey, I had created the Avail1 Template for editing the Availability page because I was not able to edit the protected Avail-1 template to add the Gen V availabilities. I was wondering why you deleted Avail1 and if it is possible for me to change the protected Avail-1 and the same for 2, 3, and 4? --Absol21990

Wait, you created that template because you couldn't edit the protected one? You shouldn't do that. If you want to make changes, do them in your userspace first and when it's done bring it up to an admin so that they can either change it for you or unprotect it so that you can make changes. Jellotalk 01:25, 11 December 2010 (UTC)
Thanks. I'm kinda new to this. --Absol21990

If people didn't bother questioning certain things the world would be a boring place xP Not my fault if I want to make sure Bulba is correct hehe Pokejungle 06:54, 11 December 2010 (UTC)

It's perfectly fine to question things. But...we got the Pokémon romanizations covered. Sorry if I sounded rude, but some people do check these things. Jellotalk 07:26, 11 December 2010 (UTC)

Welcoming

Ok, thank you! Mesuxelf 21:29, 13 December 2010 (UTC)

And also, how come your signature is —♥ Jellotalk , when mine is Mesuxelf 21:37, 13 December 2010 (UTC)? and how do you change it to make it all fancy? Mesuxelf 21:37, 13 December 2010 (UTC)

There is an option in your preferences to add a customized signature. Just make sure it follows the signature policy Jellotalk 21:59, 13 December 2010 (UTC)

Suggestion to template?

Hi Jello. Who do I talk to if I want to make a suggestion on a template? Littlmiget123 22:19, 13 December 2010 (UTC)

Either on the template's talk page or if you want you can suggest it to an admin (perhaps Werdnae? He's awesome with templates). Try on the talk page first. Depending on how complex it is, we'll see what we can do. Jellotalk 22:22, 13 December 2010 (UTC)
Okay. Thanks! ^^ Littlmiget123 22:23, 13 December 2010 (UTC)

Like A Mania

Hey Jello the User Like a mania just called me the f bomb and an ***hole and I am very offeneded. Can you please do something about it? --Pokemaster97 22:11, 16 December 2010 (UTC)

this is in a manica. I misunderstood your comment because you at first put can, where I thought you were an admin and I thought you were saying Admins are slaves on a wiki. Then you changed it to can't and I wanted to say oops my bad. Then I got blocked so I just made this temporary account to clear up the misunderstanding. I apologize. Temporary 22:16, 16 December 2010 (UTC)
I ask that you both play nice. Pokemaster97, I know you didn't mean any harm but try to be careful of what you say to a user who may seem upset. In A Manica, you shouldn't be creating another account to just to say you're sorry. That's breaking another rule. Your block is only for 12 hours. If you ever need to dispute a block, you can always e-mail me (or the admin who blocked you) using the e-mail function. Thanks. Jellotalk 22:47, 16 December 2010 (UTC)

A question or two

Hey I have one question, I made an edit and I still can't edit my page yet. Also I do not know how to change my signature, much thanks, Manatee Express 17:22, 18 December 2010 (UTC) EDIT Hey wait a sec my edit is gone!?

You need to make edits. Plural. And no, two is not enough either. Also, your edit was reverted as similarity trivia comparing something to something not Pokémon related is not notable unless they are almost exactly the same. Slight resemblances are never notable. Also keep in mind that once you are able to edit the userspace you must make sure that you continue to edit the mainspace more than your userspace, or you will lose the ability to edit it again. Bulbapedia is not a social networking site, it is an encyclopedia. Werdnae (talk) 02:19, 19 December 2010 (UTC)

Ok I need to ask you this wiki bulbapedia yeah I have a wiki called Boondocks IC at WIKIA and I want to move to wikis like this one the ones that look like wikipedia but you can edit the skin could you help me.Sondow209 22:39, 20 December 2010 (UTC)

Get on AIM. Now. Please? ht14 19:52, 27 December 2010 (UTC)

On it. Jellotalk 19:55, 27 December 2010 (UTC)

This is what happened:

I was editing the page, and then it got moved, (editconflict) so I copied the yourtext over to editing the Pidove page, thinking it was the whole page. I wondered what happened, but then I saw recent changes and I realized. So then I put the changes on the end, where they were, so now it's OK. Just to clarify. TorchicBlaziken (talkedits) 19:53, 27 December 2010 (UTC)

It's alright. Sorry about that. Jellotalk 19:55, 27 December 2010 (UTC)

Meguroko

Well, Meguroko (Pokémon), for whatever reason, is protected, so I can't edit the redirect to go to Sandile. TorchicBlaziken (talkedits) 20:05, 27 December 2010 (UTC)

Help me...

I wanted to start an article on NeoRocketShipping 'cause it said they needed it. I didn't know how to start it so I did the best I could and tried really hard to add in a picture and start the article, but I got a message saying I did it all wrong. But I don't know how to do it right and I don't understand the things you tried to tell me... Can you please help me? I really don't know how to do it...

Thanks, Eliza 02:57, 31 December 2010 (UTC)

Shipping is ArcToraphim's area of expertise, it would be best to consult her. You should look at other shipping articles to see how they're structured and to get an idea of what it's like. Jellotalk 03:13, 31 December 2010 (UTC)

But I looked at other articles, but I don't know how to do what they did, like put in the "this is an article about shipping" (the thing with the Luvdisc) and that still doesn't tell me how to add a picture. I tried clicking the image thing and putting in the site that has it but it looked like this...

bc_again.jpg

And I don't know how to find her talk page...

Eliza 04:14, 31 December 2010 (UTC)

The user you are looking for is ArcToraphim. --CoolPikachu! 04:25, 31 December 2010 (UTC)
And her talk page is located here. 648.png, gives you an image, but it must be hosted on the Archives first. Jellotalk 04:30, 31 December 2010 (UTC)

I know you're upset

But keep the Archives running, and make sure style happens with all images. I love your editing attitude, and I know you will accomplish greatness. Goodbye, friend. MaverickNate 06:25, 1 January 2011 (UTC)

Nate, losing you is horrible. I ain't gonna lie. I understand why you're leaving, but it just won't be the same without you. You did a lot for us, I can't thank you enough. I respect you a lot, and I'll know you'll go far in life. Keep it real. Thanks again for everything, you'll really be missed. Jellotalk 07:47, 1 January 2011 (UTC)

Gym images

I just wondered if It would be ok to upload screenshots for the Unova gyms that haven't yet appeared in the anime? Such as upload the screenshot to Castelia_Gym.png, but once it appears in the anime, just be changed to an anime screenshot when available. I just thought it would be better than not having any image until the appropriate gym appears in the anime.. Nothing big, but thought it better to ask before I just went ahead and did it. --samm -- 00:41, 3 January 2011 (UTC)

That sounds like a good idea. Once the anime counterpart appears though, it has to be replaced in the infobox. Go ahead. Jellotalk 02:33, 3 January 2011 (UTC)

links.

If your linking using an internal link to Battle Factory how do you make it pluriel with out breaking the link? (Remember, I still don't know ALL the wikicode.) And why can you look up Link and end up at zelda wiki? (That is irrelevant. Don't answer it if you don't want to.)--Pika3323 21:42, 3 January 2011 (UTC)

So, you want it so say Battle Factories? You could do something like [[Battle Factory|what ever you want the link name to look like]] which will turn out like this what ever you want the link name to look like. As for the looking up of Nintendo characters, that's one of the perks of being a NIWA member. :D The other wikis involved also link Pokémon related things to Bulbapedia. Jellotalk 23:14, 3 January 2011 (UTC)

Page Deletion

A page I created was deleted by you and I am not sure why. I know you Admins know a lot more than I do but I was just wondering why? Arceus97 19:56, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

Ash's Tsutarja

Hey Jello listen I was just curious as to why this page is still locked?? I thought the title was confirmed fake??RBK 00:36, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

It's only protected against new users. Autoconfirmed users are still able to edit the page. Jellotalk 00:53, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

Ok but why is it protected at all??RBK 02:00, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

Because stupid people add stupid things. Like I said, you don't have to worry. Lots of pages are semi-protected like this, regular users are able to edit. Jellotalk 02:03, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

Oh ok well tthanks for clearing that up for me.RBK 08:50, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

Userpage creation

Kind of curious but how do I edit my userpage? It says I have to edit articles first. How many articles? Also hi there. Frozen Fennec 01:34, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

You won't be able to edit your userpage for quite a while. I can't tell you the number of articles because 1) I don't actually know 2) The software determines it. Just keep editing and wait some time, the software will automatically autoconfirm you when the time is right and then you should be able to edit your userpage. Jellotalk 01:48, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

Just a quick question..

What does "no attack transparencies" mean? Some of the move images use them, and I want to know so I can fix the images. --samm -- 21:20, 10 January 2011 (UTC)

Ginant Text

O_O Yeah I'd say that would be big enough to get anyone's attention. Frozen Fennec 04:48, 13 January 2011 (UTC)

The "evil" gifs

So, why are the emerald crystal sprites still gifs? (well maybe not all of them... I only looked at the pikachu page.)while all other animated sprites are pngs? Should I change this. (oh, that's a stupid question.)--Pika3323 21:45, 13 January 2011 (UTC)

Okay, I'm trying, so... what's this File extension does not match MIME type. thing? it's an animated png. (Am I annoying?)--Pika3323 22:12, 13 January 2011 (UTC)
That message means that the server thinks you're trying to upload an image as a different type of image. (i.e. it thinks you're trying to upload something like "test.jpg" to "test.png" Double check that the file has been converted properly and then try upload it again. Sometimes the server can display that message when it shouldn't, often when it's very busy. Werdnae (talk) 01:37, 14 January 2011 (UTC)
I used a GIF to PNG converter, but I still can't upload the file.--Pika3323 14:16, 14 January 2011 (UTC)
It still won't work. Can I upload a new file then ask the GIF to be deleted?--Pika3323 14:11, 15 January 2011 (UTC)

Places of interest

Pokémon Centers and Pokémon Marts may not be that interesting to you. But you seem to be confused with what "Places of interest" means. It doesn't actually mean "Interesting places"... Both are still important locations for all towns and cities. So why did you take them out? :/--Han Ji-Wan 01:09, 15 January 2011 (UTC)

Then what does places of interest mean? Every location has them, there's nothing unique about them. I didn't take anything out except give the marts back their own sections, which ironically make them look more important. Jellotalk 01:14, 15 January 2011 (UTC)
Places of interest means any building within a town. So technically, Pokémon Centers/Marts are "Places of interest". "ironically make them look more important"... It's still there, someone's not going to accidentally glance over it even if it is under the "Places of interest".--Han Ji-Wan 01:19, 15 January 2011 (UTC)
Places of interest are what make a town interesting and unique. :3 What's a place of interest in Paris, France? The Eiffel Tower maybe? Or New York City? The Empire State building. Then there's places like Starbucks or McDonalds which are pretty much EVERYWHERE. You aren't going to go someplace for a McDonalds hamburger, because everyone has a McDonalds. Just like every town has a Pokémon Center. Does that make a bit more sense? :D Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 01:26, 15 January 2011 (UTC)
"Places of interest means any building within a town" I don't agree with that because then you'd have to count every single building useless or not. Jellotalk 01:40, 15 January 2011 (UTC)
This is not about what you think is right...--Han Ji-Wan 01:46, 15 January 2011 (UTC)
It's not about what you think is right either. Just because we don't agree with you, doesn't mean you're any more right in any way. --P S Yライダー 01:50, 15 January 2011 (UTC)
I never said I was right..--Han Ji-Wan 02:07, 15 January 2011 (UTC)
dear Han Ji-Wan, Marts and Centers are effectively in every city/town/etc. they are not places of interest as they are places of mainstay. besides, Poke Marts have their own section due to the items they sell. there is no need to note them under that header, and thusly, we wont be.
also, Jello is one of our staff members, and she knows whats going on around here, so while expressing your opinion is both acceptable, and welcomed, when you are simply arguing with a staff member (or any member for that matter) and implying they are outright wrong, it becomes unacceptable and some may go as far as to say harassment. please use a bit more consideration next time. -- MAGNEDETH 02:13, 15 January 2011 (UTC)

Because it is not needed. None of those Pokémon have their own pages. The point of those templates are to serve as a navigation between the different pages for the Pokémon. It wasn't doing that so I deleted it. Jellotalk 01:18, 16 January 2011 (UTC)

Trivia

Why is sprite trivia not allowed? - unsigned comment from CrazyRadical (talkcontribs)

Because it is not notable. If we allowed sprite trivia, the trivia sections would be full of useless uninteresting trivia. The sprites are there for the reader to compare sprites. No need to state the obvious. Jellotalk 01:01, 17 January 2011 (UTC)

Santa Claus

Hi Jello. I have a small question involving the anime. If you can't answer it, then I'll just ask Kenji-girl or someone else. I'm currently watching the Pikachu specials, and a lot of them have Santa Claus in it. Santa Claus is well known for having reindeer that fly, so should I add Ponyta and Stanter in the anime Fly article, or not? Littlmiget123 21:35, 21 January 2011 (UTC)

Interesting question. I wouldn't consider it Fly though, they're not flying on their merit but with the help of Santa (and his magical dust). It might make a good trivia, but just in case, you should bring it up with Kenji-girl. Jellotalk 21:39, 21 January 2011 (UTC)

Good job

For protecting those pages (Gardenia's and the others) that were constantly getting reverted back and forth.

Edit Page??

Hey i was wondering how do i edit my Userpage?PokeTrainerAshKetchum 01:22, 24 January 2011 (UTC)

Simple. Make some edits to the mainspace. And no, not just one, many. But make them good, relevant edits. Sorry if I wasn't supposed to jump in, Jello. Don't kill me. --Bee § Bwakka 01:28, 24 January 2011 (UTC)
All I asked was one simple thing, and I would appreciate if people respected that. If no one wants to do that, then fine. Any questions relating to creating a user page are addressed at the top of my talk page, in big bold letters, by the way. In summary, user pages are a privilege granted by editing in the mainspace and waiting a certain amount of time. Patience is key. Jellotalk

png stuff

Hey Jello, do you know any other APNG editors? I've already tried Apng edit (not what I wanted), and a plug-in for paint.net. (I can't open the apng files for some reason.) and I can't find a Apng to gif converter (So I can edit in either gimp or paint.net)—★Pika3323 21:12, 24 January 2011 (UTC)

For converting apng to gif, have you tried this? Personally, I use this apng editor, since it has a bit more options. You might want to try that too. Jellotalk 21:19, 24 January 2011 (UTC)
That first one doesn't work for me for some reason. I have a screenshot of what happens. A milisecond message reads,*ahem* Usage : apng2gif... You know what you probably don't want the message. The Japng? I've tried it. not that much though. —★Pika3323 21:25, 24 January 2011 (UTC)

Drag a gif and place it on top of this little program and it should produce an animated png version wherever the .gif is. Jellotalk 00:55, 25 January 2011 (UTC)
Ok thanks, see what I'm up to now?—★Pika3323 12:22, 25 January 2011 (UTC)
Jello the archives are acting funny. It won't let me upload anything.—★Pika3323 20:48, 25 January 2011 (UTC)
What's happening exactly? You're probably getting session data loss. It just brings you back to the upload page when that happens. Keep trying is all I can say. Jellotalk 20:51, 25 January 2011 (UTC)
I uploaded a file, then it showed the page containing the image, description and all, but not the picture! It said it wasn't uploaded, so I hit the upload link, tried, loss session data, tried again, archives say something about a duplicate name, then I tried again, now it shows a $1 error.—★Pika3323 20:57, 25 January 2011 (UTC)
Got it figured out... sort of, but good enough to upload the file.—★Pika3323 21:03, 25 January 2011 (UTC)
These are server issues that I have no control over. If you could screenshot the errors, I can maybe forward them ahead to someone who has access behind the scenes and see if they can do anything. Jellotalk 21:06, 25 January 2011 (UTC)
Ok will do, but that $1 error was a picture box with a red link File:$1 and then under red text $1.—★Pika3323 21:15, 25 January 2011 (UTC)

Yeah, the image probably didn't update yet, but it is animated, so don't worry. Jellotalk 21:03, 26 January 2011 (UTC)
My computer is acting funny right now, can you delete the other revisions of my shiny emonga sprite?—★Pika3323 21:33, 26 January 2011 (UTC)
Why is MY sprite being uploaded by CHOSEN in october (according to bulbapedia) and on the archives I uploaded it? Lemme guess mal synchronising of bulbapedia and the archives?—★Pika3323 20:33, 27 January 2011 (UTC)

Have fun

Do these look familiar? Someone won't let a ban stop them apparently. --HoennMaster 07:25, 25 January 2011 (UTC)

KG took care of it. Werdnae (talk) 07:38, 25 January 2011 (UTC)

Unuploaded Images

You said in the edit summary for Togepi's Tears and A Star for Tauros not to upload when there is no image over on the archives, however I did upload both yesterday at the articles creations. Checking today a:file:Togepis Tears.png is still on the archives from when I uploaded it but it is not appearing over here. A Star for Tauros on the other hand isn't appearing at all, and when I try to re-upload it it says 'File extension does not match MIME type.' and I don't know what that means as the image and how I'm trying to upload it as are both pngs.--Spriteit 08:14, 27 January 2011 (UTC)

If you link to an image before it is uploaded, the server for some reason still thinks the image does not exist, even though it does. That's why I urge everyone to upload the image first, and then link to it to avoid this mess. Just leave it alone for now, and maybe it will fix itself. Not sure why you're getting that MIME type error either. That kind of error usually appears if you try to upload a different file type than what's supposed to be uploaded. Jellotalk 08:29, 27 January 2011 (UTC)
I never knew that but will keep it in mind. And I'll try to upload the other picture at a later date but I am keeping them the same file extension so I don't know what the problem might be... --Spriteit 14:04, 28 January 2011 (UTC)

Yeah, that.

I expected that Marrsinc was a bot, but I checkusered it and it came up clean. The name pattern fits with the others, but I refrained from blocking because there was no solid evidence. If you don't mind me asking... how can you be sure it's a bot? Name alone is insufficient, IMO. Also, I don't know who told you not to protect the talk pages, but that's been standard policy for years. No one looks at the protection log anyway... I see no problem with "clogging it up." That's what it's there for. Oh, also. The top of this page currently says "This an encyclopedia." Might wanna fix that. --P o L i 17:10, 27 January 2011 (UTC)

Did you check the email, all of them have this same pattern and it's pretty obvious that it's a bot. Kogs told me I shouldn't protect it forever so you can ask her about that. I figured, if it's blocked then it doesn't need to be protected, there's a log entry telling you the user is blocked on the talk page anyways so...yeah. Jellotalk 17:15, 27 January 2011 (UTC)
E-mail check is good. It's been a long time since I had to deal with an onslaught of bots. The reason we have historically protected the Talk Pages of blocked users is chiefly so people don't rewelcome them. Yes, there is a note stating that the user has been blocked, but it can often be easy to miss if you're not looking for it. I know I've done it. It can also help prevent the spam that users occasionally decide blocked TPs are a good outlet for. Frankly, there's not really any reason not to protect them. I don't know why Kogs would have said otherwise... Cluttering the protection log is inconsequential. If you don't want to do it, that's up to you, but it's not going to hurt anything to my knowledge. --P o L i 17:22, 27 January 2011 (UTC)

Signature

I'm uploading some pictures on the archives and I'm having a bit of a problem. See, Ht14 says I'm suppose to sign my images, so I started doing that. Then PsychicRider is saying that I should stop signing my stuff. Can you tell me which one of them is right? Thanks Coolcatkim22 01:23, 28 January 2011 (UTC)

Ht14 was just saying to sign talk page comments. :P Not images. Psy was correcting you. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 01:26, 28 January 2011 (UTC)

And by the way, new talk page sections go on the bottom of a page. Or you could just press the little "+" next to the "edit this page" button to start a new section. --Bee § Bwakka 01:34, 28 January 2011 (UTC)

Block frenzy

Are they really spambots, or are they just annoying humans that spam?--Derenol232 01:34, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

They're really spambots, probably being controlled by one person. Jellotalk 01:44, 29 January 2011 (UTC)
Especially with the similar company names--Derenol232 18:06, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

Hey.

Uh, is this alright? I uploaded it with transparency, but I'm just making sure. I have it up until the P form, so do I go ahead and upload them or not? Also. Bracing for mass edit before going to sleep, because I won't be able to get back until 3 AM again. :/ Masatoshi talk contribs 15:38, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

/late. Yeah, it's fine, though I already told you that. Jellotalk 18:01, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

Dent

According to Serebii.net, Dent's English name has been realeased. It's Cilan. I don't know what you want to do, but it's apparently on the official Cartoon Network site too, so whether you want to change it or what, I don't know. I suppose it has to do with Cilantro and the fact that he trains grass types. Whatever. Just let me know. --Ggb81 17:23, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

Kenji-girl protected the page because she's not really convinced--Derenol232 17:27, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

Besides Serebii.net is not considered an official source by Bulbapedian standards anyway. -Tyler53841 17:28, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

TRU Ash's Pikachu

PikachuTRUPromo.png

Hey Jello. I don't know who is in current control over on Bulbanews, and since I can't edit over there I was wondering if That Image could be put in... Thanks! —MasterKenobi 16:32, 30 January 2011 (UTC)

Somebody seems to have taken care of that already. Jellotalk 22:18, 30 January 2011 (UTC)

We gots us some vandals!

Remocari and Vyrdese are spambots/vandals creating spampages here and here that need to be blocked and the pages deleted. --JediKnightDTV 18:24, 30 January 2011 (UTC)

Taken care of. Werdnae (talk) 20:03, 30 January 2011 (UTC)
Thanks, Werd! Also, it's best to catch an active admin in the recent changes to get quicker results. Jellotalk 22:18, 30 January 2011 (UTC)

sprite templates

All the pokemon who appeared in gen 3 are missing their back sprites, reason?—★Pika3323 11:49, 31 January 2011 (UTC)

Actually the sprites are there but the file that is supposed to be used has a different name—★Pika3323 11:51, 31 January 2011 (UTC)
We're actually moving all of the backsprites, because many changed within a generation. The templates on the Bulbapedia end will be updated when we finish. For more information, you can see this forum thread. --SnorlaxMonster 12:09, 31 January 2011 (UTC)
So is what I'm doing what i'm supposed to be doing?—★Pika3323 23:00, 31 January 2011 (UTC)
Yep, you're doing it right. Thanks for helping. Jellotalk 23:09, 31 January 2011 (UTC)
Jello, the archives are out of their minds. (Wonder if I said the sentence correctly.)So the archives page reverts to what wikipedia looked like a few years ago, no bulbasaur, just the little human icon, and the edit buttons are all different...and square!—★Pika3323 20:38, 1 February 2011 (UTC)
Yeah I know, again it's server stress...or something D: It'll come back right, don't worry. Jellotalk 20:40, 1 February 2011 (UTC)
Could you delete all these non-gendered gendered pokemon sprites?

There was probably an easier way to tell which sprites wasn't there.—★Pika3323 20:55, 1 February 2011 (UTC)
Done. Jellotalk 21:50, 1 February 2011 (UTC)

Pokédex Listing Update

Since they are locked could you please handle the update for the new english names on the Unova and National Dex listings. -Tyler53841 20:44, 1 February 2011 (UTC)

Done. Jellotalk 21:50, 1 February 2011 (UTC)
