Hi, yeah. Please don't close this table, since it's meant to cover the whole page. Okay? Also, I'll do a better layout when I feel like doing it. kthxbai

Editing my userpage

Will I be blocked? Sorry I'm obsessed with my user page, I can't cure my obsession.- unsigned comment from Grabbergirl (talkcontribs)

Replying on your talk page. Masatoshitalk 21:13, 15 June 2012 (UTC)
I'm doing good! just the list today but the first shipping tomorrow - unsigned comment from Grabbergirl (talkcontribs)
Just so you know, talk pages don't really count as mainspace edits, you should try fixing articles. Masatoshitalk 01:45, 17 June 2012 (UTC)

Type

So... type2 or type ? The link templates still has the "type2" template.----DJWolfy 01:10, 4 June 2012 (UTC)

it will be {{type}}. BulbaBot will be in charge of changing all the links as soon as it leaves its hibernation state. Masatoshitalk 01:13, 4 June 2012 (UTC)
No, I meant this page. What will happen to type2 ?----DJWolfy 01:14, 4 June 2012 (UTC)
It will be deleted once the job is done. Masatoshitalk 01:18, 4 June 2012 (UTC)
Nice. Took some years for it. Now someone can bring the issue up with the {{g}}.----DJWolfy 01:20, 4 June 2012 (UTC)

There isn't a problem if someone else other than BB changes type2 to type right ?----DJWolfy 01:23, 4 June 2012 (UTC)

This is a job for BulbaBot only. Masatoshitalk 01:24, 4 June 2012 (UTC)
And... why is that ? Things can be done faster with my quick hands. :p ----DJWolfy 01:26, 4 June 2012 (UTC)
Because we decided it so. BulbaBot will be in charge of it since he can do it a lot faster. Masatoshitalk 01:27, 4 June 2012 (UTC)
Ok, what about the {{g}} template ?----DJWolfy 01:28, 4 June 2012 (UTC)
What about it? Masatoshitalk 01:29, 4 June 2012 (UTC)
Well, we all know the issue about being a laziness template. But that was when the former EiC was in charge. And I don't get it why it should not be an universal template. Even SM agreed with it being a universal template.----DJWolfy 01:31, 4 June 2012 (UTC)
We're keeping it, it might be a laziness template but it helps get stuff done in less characters. It's especially done for side games. Masatoshitalk 01:50, 4 June 2012 (UTC)

Yeah that's what I said, it should also be used for every word beginning with Pokémon, for example {{g|Center}} or {{g|anime}}, not only for games.----DJWolfy 07:56, 4 June 2012 (UTC)

If Deth hasn't undone the intended usage the template had, then it means he carried TTE's wish of using it ONLY for games (mainly the side games). Any further discussions regarding that have been ignored since. so it's pointless to try and bring it up again because you'll get shot down fast. Masatoshitalk 15:54, 4 June 2012 (UTC)

Help needed.

Snorlax said you are player of Black 2 (or maybe other Masatoshi? I don't remember, I think he meant you)... well, if YES... then I need help with Route 4, more precisely the stuff that is marked as White 2-only in some way. I need someone to check Black 2 if stuff is really exclusive to White 2, or everything is the same as in White 2. I mean, I have feeling that the street in Route 4 differs between Black 2 and White 2. Marked +-+-+ (talk) 19:14, 27 June 2012 (UTC)

Animated Gym Leader, Champion and Trainer Sprites

I would like to know if when will the Archive be open for editing and uploads.. I would like to upload all the Gym Leader, Champion and Trainer Sprites in Animated PNG images... I hope it will open soon....--GASPERshut... 13:01, 16 July 2012 (UTC)

Pokemon Trainer's Choice

I am simply adding links that go from the ag000 pages to the Pokemon's Trainer Choice pages. This will ensure that each AG000 page has a link to the Pokemon's Trainer Choice page. I am only trying to help and I apologize for any stress that I may have caused you. Amanater (talk) 04:14, 17 July 2012 (UTC)

Elesa's sprite!

I see you've animated Elesa's B2W2 sprite, great, but could you split the motionless and animated sprites? I want to us the motionless sprite on the Gym Leader page. Thanks. Nickvang (talk) 17:43, 18 July 2012 (UTC)

Welcoming Bots

I'm very sorry for welcoming all of those users, some of which were bots. I didn't really pay attention to that, I just sort of welcomed whoever wasn't already permanently blocked. I didn't mean to cause extra work for you. サトシ101 (talk) 22:33, 29 August 2012 (UTC)

It's okay, you didn't know. No harm in welcoming new users as long as that isn't your only task in Bulbapedia, so don't be sorry for that. Masatoshitalk 04:57, 30 August 2012 (UTC)

Re:Ok, fine

Thanx for the advice.
I would remember it next time.UltimateSupreme(T@lk) 16:50, 19 December 2012 (UTC)

Best Wishes episode list

I don't know why you reverted my edit on 8 December. Episode N's start date was known as soon as it was announced. We always knew that the episode I put the tag after was the correct break point, we just didn't have episode titles for any Episode N episodes yet at the time. Digifiend (talk) 23:29, 21 December 2012 (UTC)

The date wasn't added, we don't like adding something ambiguous like Season 16 continues into Best Wishes Season 2 Episode N below.. That would lead people to think the season would be ending then, which as far as I know, is not. Masatoshitalk 10:16, 23 December 2012 (UTC)

Edit summary

Someone mentioned something inappropriate in the edit summary, as seen here. PattyMan 03:17, 31 December 2012 (UTC)

Force Fire just handled it. The edit summary just got deleted. PattyMan 03:23, 31 December 2012 (UTC)

Userpage Party

I'm trying to create my party from White 2 on my userpage, but I can't figure out how to change the form for Kyurem, what should I do? - unsigned comment from IVsaur (talkcontribs)

Change the Ndex parameter for Kyurem from 646 to 646W. That should do the trick. Masatoshitalk 04:03, 28 January 2013 (UTC)
Thanks! - unsigned comment from IVsaur (talkcontribs)

Hiding

How do you make the Hide button? -EVsAndIVsaurs (Talk) 16:32, 28 January 2013 (UTC)

For what, specifically? For a table? If so, when creating a table (you can also check here on how to create them) at the beginning of it, you should add class="expandable", the class will then wrap everything below the first line. If all else fails, study the code of a table that has it. Masatoshitalk 23:32, 29 January 2013 (UTC)
That worked, thank you for the help! - unsigned comment from IVsaur (talkcontribs)

Multiple Edits

Hi! Thanks for dropping a message.

I know it seemed like I edited the same page multiple times but I was actually editing different sections of the same page, and the page being Mount Coronet, it had a lot of sections. I was adding the items obtained in Platinum in the area and each floor was edited and saved in its own sub-topic.

I do use the preview function every time to make sure there's no typo or code error. I'll try to minimise multiple edits in the future though I don't think any other page needs as much editing as that one.

Regards Ishu bagaria (talk) 02:13, 17 March 2013 (UTC)

It would be better if you could edit the page overall, actually. If you had to leave while editing, you can save the code in a .txt file and then resume your work when you're back. It's just to prevent server strain. Thank you for understanding. Masatoshitalk 02:53, 17 March 2013 (UTC)

Talkpage

Why is that a rule. I dont get how removing a message isnt "clean". I normally on like wikipedia remove blocks, spams and stuff that I dont care about and move messages to archives. Oh and yeah It is "stupid" and I haven't reverted it. BlackDragon 03:44, 19 June 2013 (UTC)

Historical purposes, and so we don't have to warn users again. You have to understand that, while Wikipedia and Bulbapedia run on Mediawiki software, their policies are different. For one, we don't let Anonymous edit for obvious reasons. And we don't have as many servers as Wikipedia has, so that's one of the reasons we enforce a daily limit on userspaces, as well as users only joining in for editing their own userpages. We're mostly here to contribute to the wiki in information. Masatoshitalk 03:48, 19 June 2013 (UTC)

People do that? Thats weird. I get it, But ya know people could say that, instead of being rude. I dont think anons should be able to edit anyways...trolls, but I see the reason for it, still thinks its weird but I archived it. I just like removing dead messages that wont get replies. And archive messages with more than a few replies. Its just how I like to do things. But as for the userpage. If I have 3 big edits and I see a mispelled word, it would be against the rules to change it before I forget. Thats what someone told me even if I edit like 10 times that much in the main page.

Why cant I edit the 6th gen pages either. I have sprites for the pokemon made directly from the official image, like the rest are. BlackDragon 04:01, 19 June 2013 (UTC)

I dont have to move everything BlackDragon 04:01, 19 June 2013 (UTC)


I dont even care anymore. I just like to do things my way, Is all. Dont overreact BlackDragon 04:01, 19 June 2013 (UTC)

If you're going to archive, might as well archive everything so we can keep a closer track of your history, you can't just move your block reason message away and call it a day.
The Generation VI pages might be protected, unless you're trying to upload the sprites. If so, head to Bulbagarden Archives to upload them.
You have to move everything. Historic purposes, and as such, they should be left undisturbed unless it's vandalism.
Doing things your way doesn't always work, especially in a place with rules. We're not overreacting, we're only enforcing the rules. And please, do not recreate the page unless you move the full talk page, nor do create an empty page for the sake of having a working link. Masatoshitalk 04:15, 19 June 2013 (UTC)


"If you're going to archive, 'might as well archive everything so we can keep a closer track of your history" Sorry might that doesnt seem like a rule, just your opinion. Oh and we who? But I archived it. And have a space holder is not against the rules. Cant I just like archive the first 4 in order and keep newer still active ones? Besides is there like a bot on here that automatically archives sections older than a set time??? just wondering. BlackDragon 17:11, 19 June 2013 (UTC)

This section tells you what to do. My opinion is part of a rule. As part of the Staff, it is my duty to enforce the rules, as well as the rest of our staff. If you're going to move it to an archive, move it entirely and start clean. Having space holders are pointless and we're not going to have blank pages, might as well delete it and wait until there's content. And no, we don't have a bot that does that. Lastly, please take this week in order to read the policies and start indenting your comments. Masatoshitalk 01:10, 20 June 2013 (UTC)

Dropped Item sprite

I just moved a file on the archives called a:File:Bag Dropped Item-f Sprite.png and I can't get the pages on here that they are being used on to link to the image. Can you help me? PattyMan 01:39, 2 July 2013 (UTC)

Never mind, ht14 needed to adjust some things first. PattyMan 01:57, 2 July 2013 (UTC)

Neo SoulSilver

But, sir, I form that wikia, because the Wikinezka slowly "shut down". Check it. Even editing on Wikinezka is impossible. --Modikisha (talk) 18:06, 24 September 2013 (UTC)

Indeed, the Polish wiki is, unfortunately, dead. That doesn't mean the webmaster of a site can come here, and create an article promoting their site; it is borderline advertising, which is a bannable offense. And finally, your article did not meet the notability requirements, a wiki with barely over 180 articles is not really a popular site (at least yet). I hope you can understand my reasoning. Masatoshitalk 18:21, 24 September 2013 (UTC)
-sighs- eehh... all right, if you wanna it. But where we may find a good replacement to Wikinezka? Neo SoulSilver Wiki may be the last Polish Wiki about that. I'll try improve my site. --Modikisha (talk) 18:26, 24 September 2013 (UTC)
It's not up to me, since I'm not Polish and my knowledge about Polish is null. Improving the site would do a great deal for all the Pokémon fans in Poland, so feel free to keep going. Hopefully it will turn out well. Masatoshitalk 18:32, 24 September 2013 (UTC)

Why I made those edits

Beta is not the correct term to use for changed/removed content in video games, as the term "beta" refers to the stage of development where the game is tested before being shipped (i think?), it is highly unlikely huge amounts of data would be removed from the game at such a late point. Calling them "Beta elements" is disgustingly inaccurate. On the other hand, referring to such unused/changed content as things changed from the "Development cycle" is a more acceptable term. Please consider reverting back to "Development cycle", as beta is a horribly inaccurate term to use, especially since this is meant to be the Pokémon equivalent of Wikipedia. --The Truth aka Relicant 17:14, 30 September 2013 (UTC)

We will handle the naming of the sections when we decide the fate of the editing tags here in the discussion thread for them. I'll move this specific case up to this Friday. MaverickNate 17:21, 30 September 2013 (UTC)
Could you also refrain from editing my own userspace? That text you removed was hidden, you had no rights to touch it. Thanks. --The Truth aka Relicant 18:36, 30 September 2013 (UTC)
You are not allowed to add information about unconfirmed Pokémon, and I'm following the main rule. While it's true that you are the only one supposed to edit your own userpage, we can enforce the removal of certain content we feel is inappropriate or a breach of the userspace policy. If you add it again, it's certain that we'll remove it again. Masatoshi talk 18:46, 30 September 2013 (UTC)
You still haven't responded to my initial question.And don't try to hide behind Maverick Nate's response because it wasn't the answer I wanted. It was just a link about discussing moves/deletes/etc with the focus being on the "Beta" Pokémon games pages. nevermind about this that attitude will get me banned and i wont be able to fresh start sorry. --The Truth aka Relicant 18:52, 30 September 2013 (UTC)
While it may be inaccurate to call them "Beta elements", it can't be changed by anyone, especially without a proper discussion. What Nate posted was a link to the place where the renaming and possibly moving will be discussed. I would also suggest to wind down on the accusations (like you seemed to do right now), since Nate provided the answer you really needed. He's trying to make this smoother and official. Masatoshi talk 18:58, 30 September 2013 (UTC)
I get angry when things are inaccurate, which explains why I'm turning stupid over the beta misuse. --The Truth aka Relicant 19:00, 30 September 2013 (UTC)
I suggest you to control your temperament, then, like your recent userpage edit, which comes off as provoking. This will only make your fresh start harder. Masatoshi talk 19:05, 30 September 2013 (UTC)

Quick Question

If we're not supposed to post info on "leaked" pokemon, shouldn't that one revision (even though it was all hidden) I made be deleted? --The Truth aka Relicant 18:57, 1 October 2013 (UTC)

Looks like it has been taken care of. Masatoshi talk 19:17, 1 October 2013 (UTC)

Well that was quick. --The Truth aka Relicant 19:19, 1 October 2013 (UTC)

Uncreatable talk page

So why is Talk:Flying Press (move) protected from being created? This seems fairly counter-productive for any questions one may have about the move.... Schiffy (Speak to me|What I've done) 22:46, 28 October 2013 (UTC)

It wasn't protected as far as I know. But you can now edit the talk page. Masatoshi talk 16:30, 29 October 2013 (UTC)

File:658Greninja.png

I had problem that 658Greninja not updated.Sorry can you update it? --Rolandpokémon (talk) 11:33, 29 October 2013 (UTC)

You mean you want to update but can't do it? Archives is currently locked, so for the time being, you can't update it. Masatoshi talk 16:30, 29 October 2013 (UTC)
Okay it has been updated by G50 by now but sorry if i mess you to do that.--Rolandpokémon (talk) 13:40, 30 October 2013 (UTC)

Bulbagarden Archives Protection: How much longer will it last?

Do you know how much longer is Bulbagarden Archives going to be protected? It was originally protected to prevent leaked info from X and Y to be uploaded, but now that the games are out, I at least don't see any reason why it would need to stay blocked, even Bulbapedia has been open for edits for a while now. Can you do anything for it? Bulbabedia is in a deperate need for missing images and sprites from the new games! --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 11:38, 29 October 2013 (UTC)

This is a question better asked to the Archives Liaison, Kogoro. And upon further inspection, you already have asked her about this. I can't do anything that isn't without her consent, so please wait until she decides to unlock Archives, and additionally, try to ask one person only, and unless that person redirects you to someone else, try to stick with whatever that user said. Thank you. Masatoshi talk 16:30, 29 October 2013 (UTC)

Geosenge Town Photo

Here is a picture I took for geosenge town, I can take another one if there needs to be a character in the frame. -EVsandIVsaurs 16:38, 30 October 2013 (UTC)

Menu sprite update

At first, I would like to say that your work on updating the Pokémon menu sprites has been quite remarkable. I really like when someone puts effort into doing some improvements.
Secondly, could you please also upload the menu sprites for the Mega Evolved Pokémon? They should come in handy at various pages. Also, I was just wondering, should the Kalos Pokémon have their animated menu sprites uploaded? Just thinking.
In case you would be so nice to do at least some of these things, you can be sure that me and the rest of Bulbapedia will be very glad. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 13:35, 3 February 2014 (UTC)

Oops! Sorry for taking so long to reply back! Real life's kept me busy. Thanks, and I would gladly upload those, but our source doesn't seem to have it either, so we're kinda hitting a wall in there. Regarding the animated menu sprites, that would mean capturing all the Pokémon's menu sprites again, record the frames and then edit them one by one. It's possible but it's too tedious and expensive (since you still need the capture device). Masatoshi talk 15:39, 16 February 2014 (UTC)

Mega Evolution minisprites

Masatoshi, because we don't have the Mega Evolution minisprites, could you upload them in the Bulbagarden Archives? --Cinday123 (Talk) 00:13, 22 February 2014 (UTC)

Sorry, no can do. I don't have them. Masatoshi talk 00:18, 22 February 2014 (UTC)
So Masatoshi, do you have a Nintendo 3DS Capture Card? --Cinday123 (Talk) 00:22, 22 February 2014 (UTC)
No, otherwise I would have done them already. Masatoshi talk 00:28, 22 February 2014 (UTC)


Previewing

I know to preview my page first before saving it. But the glitch I kept encountering on the page in question would only appear after I saved it. I would preview the page, everything looked okay, and then saved it only to find that odd garbled code at the end.
