Welcome

Welcome to Bulbapedia, Patriotfan09!

As a new user, you may wish to learn a few things that will be useful in your editing:

  • For a basic overview of wiki code, see this page.
  • The manual of style is very important. Make sure to read it. It outlines all official policies of Bulbapedia.
  • The word Pokémon is spelled with a capital P and an accented é. The P, of course, is accessed easily by holding Shift and pressing the P key, while the é can be accessed using Alt + 130 or Alt + 0233 on a Windows computer, and Option + e, then e again on a Mac. Otherwise, you can click it in the character palette below the editbox.
  • The word Poké Ball is spelled as two words. The "Poké" part is identical to the four beginning letters in "Pokémon"; "Ball" is spelled with a captial B (which is, again, accessed by holding Shift and pressing the B key). The spelling "Pokéball" arises frequently, but is incorrect.
  • The word "you" and all forms of it should not be used on encyclopedic pages unless it is a quote from Pokémon media. Bulbapedia is an encyclopedia, not a walkthrough.
  • On talk pages, please sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).
  • The use of link templates is official policy. For an explanation on their use, see the page on shortlinks.
  • If you happen to spot a vandal in the recent changes that has not been dealt with, please see this page for how to deal with it.
  • A list of pages that are linked to, but have not been created, can be found at this page. A list of short articles that may require more information can be found here, while a list of articles that need improvement can be found here.
  • If you want to make a page about a character you made up, please create it at User:Patriotfan09/(name), not merely (name). Bulbapedia's main namespace is reserved for actual, official Pokémon, items, characters, and locations. Also, please try to make sure that subpages are not categorized by templates used within.
  • A list of the admins that you can contact in case of a problem, can be found here.

Thank you, and have a good time editing here! MAGNEDETH 03:08, 21 March 2008 (UTC)

Signature Help

Can someone help me create a signature, or at least tell me hom to? Thanks.

Let's see, I think I've got some good links that'll help you.
First off; if you go to your Preferences, you'll see a field called "Nickname". That's your signature; anything you put there will automatically be posted to the page when you type ~~~~. If you check off the "Enable Raw Signatures" box under that, you can use all sorts of fancy coding in there as well.
Do you perhaps have an idea of how you want your signature to look? If you can't figure out the coding to do it, let me know what you want, and I'll see if I can code something up for you. -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 05:43, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

making a signature is pretty easy now that we have a policy. it narrows your choices. bascially, choose some fav colors of yours (given your a Patriots fan i presume) and then its pretty easy after that. -- MAGNEDETH 03:05, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

Signing

Having a signature is no good if you don't sign your comments. Be sure you put ~~~~ after every comment you leave on a talk page. Even if you haven't made your signature yet, you should sign your comments with the default signature until you finish your custom one. --Martonimos((Talk)) 04:22, 30 April 2008 (UTC)

Kingdra

Kingdra has been done. -- MAGNEDETH 04:08, 3 May 2008 (UTC)

no, we just decided we dont have time for testing. You are free to join, sp please do. Patriotfan09 16:14, 12 May 2008 (UTC)

...advertising your site on random people's talk pages.

You know, it's kind of rude to do that. Why don't you just put the notice on your talk page or something instead of going to over 9000's people's talk pages (And updating them as you go along, updating each page with one bit of info.)? I'd think you'd get more business that way.. Tina 03:12, 7 May 2008 (UTC)

ok, sorry, but im just posting on the popular pages. Patriotfan09 03:18, 7 May 2008 (UTC)
Still though, you're gonna get more visitors if you don't bother people about it. A notice on the top of your page'll do. Tina 03:16, 7 May 2008 (UTC)
ok then

Table

Everyone stole it from Jioruji Derako Anyway, I can fix it. What do you want done? Porygon-Z 20:45, 7 May 2008 (UTC)

those quick links i stole from you to match in color to the rest of the table. Patriotfan09 20:51, 7 May 2008 (UTC)

But what do you want me to do with it. Porygon-Z 20:53, 7 May 2008 (UTC)

make them match the rest of the table Patriotfan09 20:57, 7 May 2008 (UTC)
Oh. You want the quick links. Ok. Porygon-Z 21:02, 7 May 2008 (UTC)
There. Porygon-Z 21:05, 7 May 2008 (UTC)
Thanks Porygon-Z Patriotfan09 21:09, 7 May 2008 (UTC)
I can change colours too if you ever need that. You could probably figure out how to do it though. Porygon-Z 21:10, 7 May 2008 (UTC)
ok then, but im not very good at the codes and such, and thanks

Signature

I will make a sig for you. BUT MAKE SURE YOU SIGN YOUR COMMENTS. What do you want it to be like? Porygon-Z 21:31, 7 May 2008 (UTC)

ok, i wwill remember to sign them

and, i want one like yours, but i want a slighly darker blue, and a red. Patriotfan09 21:33, 7 May 2008 (UTC)

Patriotfan09????? By the way the fan09 links to your talk page, you just can't see it since we're on it. Porygon-Z 21:41, 7 May 2008 (UTC)
thanks dude, now how do i use it???? Patriotfan09 21:52, 7 May 2008 (UTC)

and, could u make it the 09 my Talk Page (and Blue) while the fan remains Red? Make it link to DCM's Story (the updated version)? Patriotfan09 21:55, 7 May 2008 (UTC)

Go way up top and click "My Preferences".
Make sure you have the raw signatures box clicked.
Paste that code in there.
Press save. Porygon-Z 21:59, 7 May 2008 (UTC)
ok, paste it where? Nickname? Patriotfan09 22:07, 7 May 2008 (UTC)
Yep. Porygon-Z 22:07, 7 May 2008 (UTC)
ok, it said this:

Invalid raw signature; check HTML tags. wat to i do??? Patriotfan09 22:18, 7 May 2008 (UTC)

Are you sure you copied what you were supposed to? Porygon-Z 22:23, 7 May 2008 (UTC)
yea, i copied everything u said too. I will try again. Patriotfan09 22:27, 7 May 2008 (UTC)

Alright, the coding doesn't fit, that's the problem. It chops a bit of the last /span tag off, thus invalidating the whole thing. I shortened a few of the tags by "cheating" and using the old font color= tags instead, and I switched the #000000 for black instead (shaves two characters off the end result). Here, this one should fit now:
<span style="background:black">[[User:Patriotfan09|<font color="#1E90FF">'''Patriot'''</font>]][[User talk:Patriotfan09|<font color="#DC143C">'''fan'''</font>]][[User talk:Darth Cookie Monster/My Story|<font color="#1E90FF">'''09'''</font>]]</span>
Copy the whole thing, paste it, just like before. It should work this time. -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 22:41, 7 May 2008 (UTC)
Oh, and make sure to copy the coding you see, don't edit the page to copy it. Otherwise you grab the <nowiki> and <code> tags too, and we're just using those to display the coding properly. -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 22:42, 7 May 2008 (UTC)
I probably should have checked. I figured it would fit since his name is only a few characters longer than mine. Porygon-Z 22:44, 7 May 2008 (UTC)
I think the limit is 255 characters, your signature is probably close to that. The link to DCM's story page is longer then your trade link too, so that added a bunch. -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 22:46, 7 May 2008 (UTC)
Oh yeah, forgot about the link. Porygon-Z 22:51, 7 May 2008 (UTC)
Thanks you guys, you both helped me out a lot. Thanks again. =) Patriotfan09 23:00, 7 May 2008 (UTC)

Your Gym System...

  • Ok, i see you are setting up a gym thing. Well, i have a couple ideas to make it much better.
  • post on my talk to ask about it, then you can transfer them over here for discussion. Patriotfan09 22:47, 15 May 2008 (UTC)
You can bring them up here. Feel free. Porygon-Z 22:56, 15 May 2008 (UTC)
Well, alright then, if you prefer me too.......
These are just short summaries, not full in detail....
  1. 1) I think the planning/structure should be made better.
  2. 2) I have some better rules to go along with yours.
  3. 3) Your "system" needs a person who can be in charge, a Chairman of the Board/CEO type of deal, to have the final decision *coughcough*me, patfan*cougcough Patriotfan09 23:03, 15 May 2008 (UTC)
  1. Like? And remember that everything isn't finalized yet.
  2. Let's hear 'em.
  3. No offense, but I don't think there is anyway that you could do that now, because you're kind of new here, not everyone knows you, and it would probaly have to be someone who was with the gyms from the beginning such as Magnedeth or DCM. Porygon-Z 23:07, 15 May 2008 (UTC)
  1. I can explain it better here...
New (and improved) Rules:
  • I hope you are all satisfied with your positions but for those of you who don't you may challenge anyone (accept me) you like for there positions. The ones who lose will switch with the winner.
  • Anyone who defeats the Elite Four and me will take the 1st Gym Leaders Position. You only have to beat five gym leaders to challenge the elite four. So to my members espescially the first Gym Leader. I suggest you try your best to switch positions with someone before it's too late.
  • Half your team must be your specialty. The Gym Leaders can use 1 uber, Elite Four can use 2, and the champion (Me) can use three but chances are I won't. Challengers can use as many ubers as their opponent. I hope didn't miss anything.
  • If you are caught breaking any of these rules you will loose all GLC Progress and have to start over.
Suggestions:
  • There need to be 8 Gym Leaders, each with 2/3 Trainers under them.
  • You need an elite four
  • You need a battle frontier section as well

I have some BF rules to be posted later... And im on other sites who have these things. Patriotfan09 23:50, 15 May 2008 (UTC)

This is way too much.
1. No way that a gym leader would lose their position because of a loss.
2. We've already decided which Pokemon one can and can't use.
3. We can't have an elite four or battle frontier. It's way too many people. We're creating a simple gym system, not a new game. Porygon-Z 02:21, 16 May 2008 (UTC)

Although that would be great, and although I am not taking any part in this, I think that you should just stick to Gym leaders.

  • Too few people, eight is enough. We will not be able to find 12 more for the Elite Four and Battle Frontier.
  • Way too complicated. There will be too many rules. It'll become too confusing.
  • Since we are only users of a website, I think we should stick to the basic Gym leader.
  • And contests = no

Pokemaniac102 02:27, 16 May 2008 (UTC)

youve got 8 gyms. the 8 gyms are currently taken. once an order is assembled, anyone can challenge the order. simple as that really. we dont need a CEO, we collectively make decisions together. -- MAGNEDETH 02:30, 16 May 2008 (UTC)

1. No, thats for Leaders only, and if we use gym leader positions
2. sorry, forgot about that
3. just an Idea. However, i think there should be a Elite four.
4. Pokemaniac, wat do u mean??
5. Magnetdeth, it was just a suggestion. I thought it was a good one, like someone who organizes it and such Patriotfan09 02:39, 16 May 2008 (UTC)
I fail to see the point of having a ceo...... it works better if we decide as a group, with a vote. Also, contests are out of the picture. And an Elite 4 and a Battle Frontier. Way to many people for a simple gym system....C is for Cookie 12:02, 16 May 2008 (UTC)
ok, i fail to see wat you guys mean by "contests". I dont see anything about them. And the CEO idea was a person who isnt a leader who is on the board, NOT a person who controls the board... Patriotfan09 20:39, 16 May 2008 (UTC)
But what is the practical use to having another member in the group?C is for Cookie 21:33, 16 May 2008 (UTC)
8 members can have a tie. With 9 members, its impossible to have a tie. Patriotfan09 21:50, 16 May 2008 (UTC)

WHAT

ARE YOU DOING????•PM102 04:58, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

  • what do you mean? Patriotfan09 05:00, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
Why are you adding that table? And why are you replacing my signature with yours? I put the welcome template first•PM102 05:01, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

User talk...

Okay, not everyone needs that template thing you have at the top of your page on theirs. Additionally, the welcome has been updated since we gave you yours, so no need to make it like yours. Call it with {{subst:welcome}} instead of copy/pasting it from your page. Kay? TTEchidna 05:01, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

  • sorry, i didnt know. And he wants it, i know him, he is my friend, and he asked me for it. Im the one who got him to join here, so i wanted to welcome him. Patriotfan09 05:02, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
Well you could have said something. And prove it!•PM102 05:04, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
Well if he wanted it he could technically get it himself... doesn't take a genius to copy/paste code. I did that when I started here! TTEchidna 05:05, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
ok, but he doesnt know how do all of that. Patriotfan09 05:08, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
Do whatever you want to help•PM102 05:09, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
ok, i can do that once i can edit it. Its Protected. Patriotfan09 05:12, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

If you had explained your case, it would have gone over better. Why not try that?Emperor's Cookies 08:15, 14 June 2008 (UTC)

As I said, I really dont care anymore. So please drop it. Patriotfan09 08:17, 14 June 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. --Chocolate((Talk to Me|Look at My Contributions)) 22:51, 2 December 2008 (UTC)

Question

This is just for my own curiosity, but why are you constantly editing Guardian's user page? I realize he gave you permission, but I fail to see why blanking is page is helping anything. --PAK Man Talk 19:20, 5 December 2008 (UTC)

I didnt want it, the day it happened i wasnt allowed to edit anymore --Guardian of Earth |SGMS 2010

Let's talk.

Alright. We have an issue that another check user noticed earlier today. As you may or may not know, a check user is someone who can check all IP addresses a user has used, what edits they've made from those IP addresses, what other users have used those IP addresses, and a host of other things. So, during a sockpuppet hunt earlier today, we noticed something very odd. On February 3rd, a user called Guardian made two edits from your IP address. The edits were to DCM's talk page, and can still be viewed in the history.

See, this is a problem. Things like this don't just "happen." There are a few possibilities we're considering, including:

1. You and Guardian are the same person. Wouldn't be the first time. Not good.
2. You hacked his account. Again, not good.
3. He somehow hacked your account, although that's unlikely and I can't really figure out if it's even possible.
4. There's a third party screwing with all of us.

So, you tell me. Which is it? And the answer better be darn good, because IP addresses don't lie. --ニョロトノ666 00:38, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

I guess we have some sort of misunderstanding here.

1. I'm not Max. If you need proof, check IPGL.
2. I don't even know how to hack an account. I can barely figure out Wiki coding.
3. I doubt anyone can guess my password. It's a hard one.
4. I don't think I've pissed anyone off enough to screw me over like this.

If there's anything else, I'll gladly answer. I'm curious myself to see what's going on. Patriotfan09 03:22, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

See, there isn't really a misunderstanding. And it's not so much a matter of us asking you questions about what's going on. It's that we need to know if something is going on, because if there is, you deny it, and we find out about it, it's an infinite block. Period. And at the moment, we don't really know if you're telling the truth here. Your IPs matched at one point. That's not normal. And we need to get to the bottom of it. --ニョロトノ666 00:20, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
