Template:L

Aren't link templates supposed to be protected?--Maria♥♪♫δ 07:10, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

Considering that they don't link to anything, meaning they aren't used except in very rare cases, they are useless link templates and are about to be deleted. --RexRacer 07:21, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
It was suppose to lead to a legendary trio article.--Force Fire talk 07:32, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
Take it up with TTE, he deleted it; and I got rid of it on your page because it was about to be deleted. -RexRacer 07:33, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

Link templates

They are a part of the official policy. Please use them.--Diby 07:21, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

They were subst'd because they were about to be deleted. Thank you. --RexRacer 18:52, 2 March 2009 (UTC) 07:24, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
Those weren't link templates. Those were laziness templates. Difference: one's used for 493 (and sometime soon, more) links, others are used for three. TTEchidna 07:27, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

AIM

Emailed to you. — THE TROM — 05:15, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

Sorry!

Sorry you missed me on AIM. I didn't have an away message up. If you need to talk to me still, please IM me. -Sketch 20:39, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

No problem. I got everything sorted out with TTE. Thanks for the heads-up, though! --RexRacer 22:27, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

Violation

By using all caps on your reply to me, you violated this. It says to "play nice", and using all caps certainly isn't nice at all. Chocolate (Chat with Me) 01:30, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

After an admin and the head honcho himself said it didn't violate anything, I'm not worrying about it.--RexRacer 02:14, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
Because you hate me. Chocolate (Chat with Me) 02:35, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
Guys, please...just drop it.--Tavisource 02:36, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
I will when RexRacer admits it. Chocolate (Chat with Me) 02:38, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
No offense, Chocolate, but why are you so paranoid that everyone is out to get you and everyone hates you? --PsychicRider 02:39, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
Because they act like they hate me. Chocolate (Chat with Me) 02:40, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
I've said that I don't already. Drop it.--RexRacer 02:40, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

(resetting indent) Well, then stop acting like you do hate me. Chocolate (Chat with Me) 02:41, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

Where did he use bold words? And it's not really your job to catch people's mistakes such as this...so it would be better if you just stand back, hands-free.--Tavisource 02:42, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
Acting is different than actuality. --PsychicRider 02:43, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

Maybe you know this...maybe not

but redlinks to the userspace do not appear on the wanteds. MaverickNate 05:24, 9 January 2009 (UTC)

Hmm. I thought the ultimate goal was to have no redlinks in any space. --RexRacer 00:41, 10 January 2009 (UTC)
No redlinks to the mainspace, probably. ΘρtιmαtumTalk 00:50, 10 January 2009 (UTC)
Actually, I meant, anything linking to the userspace... so User:Pikachu wouldn't appear on the wanteds, even though it is a redlink. Every other space, however, does appear (except for usertalk). MaverickNate 02:03, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

{{User pedia admin}}

Why do you hate colons? Chocolate (Chat with Me) 22:39, 15 January 2009 (UTC)

Go ahead. Accuse me of hating something again. I really appreciate it.--RexRacer 04:01, 17 January 2009 (UTC)
pfff ridge racer only hates those who hate him.--DCM((Mock MeEdits)) 23:48, 17 January 2009 (UTC)
PONDER IT--RexRacer 23:50, 17 January 2009 (UTC)
I'm curious about this too, actually. Is there really a difference between colons and dashes? I personally think the former is better than the latter, but.. - espeonA 22:11, 19 January 2009 (UTC)
I was trying to get him to deal with the fact that not everything is correct and needs to be done his way.--RexRacer 22:13, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

uummm...

what...?--freezingCOLD (page, talk) 22:09, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

I was saying in two letters "You just made him even more confused". I chose "kk" because I still think of you as Kkllnn, and not Cold. --RexRacer 22:10, 19 January 2009 (UTC)
oh...--freezingCOLD (page, talk) 22:11, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

Outdated Party templates

Hey, why did you just eliminate my game section from Fantina's Drifblim? I agree that that Party template is outdated, but in my opinion is the one best suited for that section (as it lists not the whole team of a Trainer, but rather several movesets of the same Pokémon in different battles; it also involves a Super Contest moveset). I'd make a new one just suited for listing game movesets in Pokémon pages, but I don't know how, and I thought using that one would be neat enough. Also, even if we end up not using that template, the game info has to go in there somewhere, as Fantina's Drifblim isn't a Pokémon that just appears in the anime. Memo 21:53, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

EFF YEAH

Agreed, pokemonmusicmaster on Youtube is a genius for uploading all that crap (except for those one-second things). And that battle theme you put up before, I had listened to that before too. Fi-ray ►strike! 01:39, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

Aura Gurdians

Can you make a User Tag for Aura Gurdians.The Aura Wolf !!!! 13:51, 1 February 2009 (UTC)

Sketch's talk page

Did he give you permission to archive it? 0° 00:35, 2 February 2009 (UTC)

Nope. I just felt like doing it.--RexRacer 00:36, 2 February 2009 (UTC)
He can archive his talk page whenever he wants. 0° 00:37, 2 February 2009 (UTC)
He has his rights in fact I'm gonna archive someones page for the hell of it.--☆Coolピカチュウ! 00:38, 2 February 2009 (UTC)
You can't just archive a random person's archive just because you think it's too full. It's their choice. 0° 00:39, 2 February 2009 (UTC)
Acually we can.--☆Coolピカチュウ! 00:40, 2 February 2009 (UTC)
Nope. 0° 00:41, 2 February 2009 (UTC)
Chocolate...they're joking. I asked him to since I don't know how. -Sketch 00:42, 2 February 2009 (UTC)

Okay then. 0° 00:43, 2 February 2009 (UTC)

... yes... it is called sarcasm--RexRacer 00:44, 2 February 2009 (UTC)
Sorry hon, you're always going to be Chocolate no matter what you change your name to. You can't hide. -Sketch 00:46, 2 February 2009 (UTC)
But "Chocolate" is an insult to me. 0° 00:47, 2 February 2009 (UTC)
Seriously... Get over it. You shouldn't of picked as your name to begin with. And please don't give me a sob story saying that the name is tainted with bad memories. Cope with it... --ケンジガール 00:52, 2 February 2009 (UTC)
But it is tainted with bad memories. 0° 02:40, 2 February 2009 (UTC)
Too bad. People remember you as Chocolate. Now please take this somewhere else, my talk page is getting cluttered.--RexRacer 02:43, 2 February 2009 (UTC)
You do realize that you're gonna get me in trouble now, right? 0° 02:43, 2 February 2009 (UTC)
How? I have nothing against you. I'm just saying that you changed your name two days ago. Two days after you became chocolate people still thought of you as baby g. Now please, leave me alone...--RexRacer 02:48, 2 February 2009 (UTC)

I'm gonna get in trouble because I promised that nobody could know my previous identity, and now everyone in the world knows. I hope you appreciate that my promise is broken now. 0° 02:51, 2 February 2009 (UTC)

Then you shouldn't have paraded around TTE's PUBLIC TALK PAGE saying you're making a new account. -Sketch 02:53, 2 February 2009 (UTC)
Dude. You posted it on MY talk page. EVERYONE goes there at least once a day. TTEchidna 02:53, 2 February 2009 (UTC)
Still, if someone gives permission to do a sensitive action, don't make it look like they didn't--(most) sysops will take the "they didn't give permission" part and take it seriously. Higher-ups tend to lack a sense of humor when it comes to stuff like this, and what one sees as a funny joke, another sees as an insultive action. --Shiningpikablu252 00:52, 2 February 2009 (UTC)
Most of the higher ups are in the AIM chatroom where I gave permission. Including TTE. It's fine. -Sketch 00:54, 2 February 2009 (UTC)
Guys, I'm not even kidding. Lay off Choco-boy O Degrees. He's right; you can't archive someone else's talk page if they didn't give you permission. Instead of responding with non-blatant sarcasm, just say what happened. And O°, just refrain from continuing to harp on a discussion if you start feeling ganged-up on. --ニョロトノ666 03:15, 2 February 2009 (UTC)

Marshmallows in Skarmory

Hopefully in generation 5 the pokedex entry will mention both Skarmory's hollowness and its stuffing. Until then, I finalized the physiology and there shouldn't be any more problems from me. I am sorry I had a bad start. Jacobe 00:27, 6 February 2009 (UTC)Jacobe

I am positive that it is true. The original sentence just said that Skarmory was light, and I was trying to provide the reason for the lightness. I will go back and restore the original sentence.

That said, before I made edits on the Skarmory page it was unreadable.- unsigned comment from Jacobe (talkcontribs)

Help

Okay I'm new to this so I want to know how this editing thing really works. Can you help me make sure I don't get blocked or change anything wrong?- unsigned comment from Stevenyeffcoat (talkcontribs)

Thanks for the help

That helps so thanks. I found out today when the new Pokémon movies was going to be aired but I went to wikipedia to see who the voice actors will be... apparently they are wrong. StevenYeffcoat -talk 02:51, 7 February 2009 (UTC)

Talk to be me on AIM

Now.--☆Coolピカチュウ! 01:22, 11 February 2009 (UTC)

What? I don't really use it anymore. But okay...--RexRacer 01:24, 11 February 2009 (UTC)

Just so you know

Pokemon.com =/= Confirmation. They've been wrong before. It's best to wait till it airs before changing anything. --ケンジガール 03:26, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

An Idea

Since you removed that Trivia post from the latest Anime episode I had an idea and if you don't like it I'll just drop it but here is what I have so far:

Also unlike the anime, in the games Attract will only not wear off after on its own, but only different methods, most notably after the Pokémon who used it or the Pokémon who was afflicted leaves the battle.

The purpose of what I want to see it is readded without metioning the items, but I would like your opinion first. -Tyler53841 18:34, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

Hmm. It's pretty good, might I suggest changing it to this? "Another notable difference between the anime and the games concerns Attraction, which, in the games, does not wear off on its own." Short and simple.--RexRacer 18:40, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

Right I'll do it your way since it doesn't need to be too detailed though what I was trying to say is the most common method. Besides I believe there are better ways of just re-editing than just delete an important note like that since it reflects a difference between the games and anime. But anyway thanks for your support and I'll re-update your idea abit but still keep it in the perimeters that you were trying to do.-Tyler53841 18:49, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

Good job

Thank you for marking that anoying template for deletion, are regular users aloud to just add the deletion template out of the blue because we think the page should be deleted or should we get an admin's permission?--Pokemonguy1 03:33, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

Anyone can.--RexRacer 03:42, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

. . .

If people would place the notices at the bottom of the page like they're supposed to, I would. Is there a rule against conforming to the norm of the styles? Besides that, who are you to tell me I can't make edits to the mainspace? シンジShinjiLover,Edits 23:27, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

I am the leader of Project BerryDex, and I am asking you to stop imposing messing with the berry articles. That's who I am. Without the template over it, the formatting for some pages is screwed up. Also, if we want consistanty, we will have all of the articles one way, not mismatched to make it similer to the other, non-berry pages.--RexRacer 23:30, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
The thing is, the notices--☆Coolピカチュウ! 08:30, 1 March 2009 (UTC) go on the BOTTOM of the page. THE BOTTOM. You can ask Maverick Nate. "Project Notices - Go below everything." That exactly what Nate said. If you see my talk page, you'll know that's what he said. I was only following what an admin told me. Are you an admin? No, you're not, so I'd assume you don't know the styles. Kthnxbai. シンジShinjiLover,Edits 23:33, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
You want the alternative?--RexRacer 23:39, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
Uh, no, I want to follow to styles, duh. But, whatever, it's not my problem if you're not going to obey the rules. シンジShinjiLover,Edits 23:41, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
Shinji, calm down. Your edits were making problems with the prevnext appearing on Internet Explorer. Reverting them may not have been the best route to take to rectify the issue that was caused, but it is acceptable to remove such formatting issues. Also, RexRacer is the leader of the BerryDex project, that does give him authority regarding berry articles. We've found a fix that will allow the pages to fit with what both of you want to see, so please stop this bickering. - Kogoro | Talk to me - 23:50, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

Firstly, why am I the only one being told to calm down? Secondly, I was only doing what Maverick Nate told me to do. シンジShinjiLover,Edits 00:03, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

So now you're going to put the notices at the bottom? Criminy. . >.> シンジShinjiLover,Edits 08:14, 1 March 2009 (UTC)
Calm down.--☆Coolピカチュウ! 08:30, 1 March 2009 (UTC)
._. When was I freaking out? Oh, and mind your own buisness. Kthnxbai. シンジShinjiLover,Edits 08:38, 1 March 2009 (UTC)
That was just rude and as I said I'm telling the truth Idc if I intervene unless Rex asks me I'll but out.--☆Coolピカチュウ! 08:40, 1 March 2009 (UTC)
And someone told you I wasn't rude? Telling the truth about what?? シンジShinjiLover,Edits 08:44, 1 March 2009 (UTC)
You went into that whole explanation for absolutely nothing. If you were actually going to put all the notices at the bottom, especially after I thought of it first, you could have told me instead of making yourself out to be even more of an asshole than I already think you are. =/ Too bad. シンジShinjiLover,Edits 22:36, 1 March 2009 (UTC)
Both sides, this is getting out of hand. Let's drop everything and pretend it never5 happened. The edits are done, and now we can move on, deal? MaverickNate 00:01, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

Project Games

Hi RexRacer! You are a member of the Project Games and so, I thought I would ask you if you have any reliable source of information about the Spin-off Pokémon games. As you are probably aware, they need the most attention of the project members. Your help in expanding these articles would be deeply appreciated. Thank you.--Sher-e-Bengal- 12:54, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

Template:FB

OK, so it was originally intended for frontier brains. That doesn't mean it can't be used elsewhere, if it's convenient. I'm Missingno. Master. See my new and improved user page, and comment on it! 17:59, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

*cough* Your talkpage, sir. ht14 18:37, 2 March 2009 (UTC)
I believe that it is only intended for Frontier Brains and should not be used anywhere else. I made the template to replace the individual laziness Frontier Brain templates, making them all into one.--RexRacer 18:40, 2 March 2009 (UTC)
Still, it was originally [[Magikarp salesman|salesman]]. Doesn't that look exactly like the kind of thing that a link template should be used for? You gotta admit it, {{FB|Magikarp|salesman}} is much better, right? I'm Missingno. Master. See my new and improved user page, and comment on it! 18:43, 2 March 2009 (UTC)
Laziness issue. Use it ONLY for the design it's for. That's the idea. Same with Template:DL. Only used for items. Not TCG. ht14 18:44, 2 March 2009 (UTC)
I really don't care, to be honest.--RexRacer 18:52, 2 March 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, I resent the idea that using link templates for laziness is discouraged. I see laziness as using convenience to its fullest extent, making the most of it, possibly helping to streamline life for others, leading by example. In short, I see it as a GOOD thing. Instead of writing [[Pokémon]], it's much easier to write {{g|}}. Both of them come to the same thing. I'm Missingno. Master. See my new and improved user page, and comment on it! 19:01, 2 March 2009 (UTC)
Override to server, etc. Too risky. ht14 19:27, 2 March 2009 (UTC)
Wait, override to server? What the heck does that mean? And how is using link templates for laziness purposes too risky??? I'm Missingno. Master. See my new and improved user page, and comment on it! 19:37, 2 March 2009 (UTC)
The point is not to confuse new users when they are editing. When they see {{g|}} they will have no idea what that means. That is one of the reasons it is only supposed to be used on its intended purpose, Pokémon XD. I prohibitted it from the TCG because I want people who edit to be worried about content, not whether a laziness template is used or not. MaverickNate 20:09, 2 March 2009 (UTC)
And there you have it. Admin saves the day. ht14 03:35, 4 March 2009 (UTC)

Question

くうちゅうさっぽう? MaverickNate 20:20, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

AG166

I was just undoing the spoiler links I put in a few edits before. I read the Manual of style and on the discussion page, this issue was addressed. rockersk08 17:05, 12 March 2009 (UTC)

Why did you revert my edit? Shippings are not supported by the Pokémon Company Mr.Yellow 00:43, 13 March 2009 (UTC)

It is redundant. Shipping is made up by fans. Nowhere does it say anything about official support.--RexRacer 00:44, 13 March 2009 (UTC)

I know it is but why don't make a template about that? (I can make one if you want) Mr.Yellow 00:46, 13 March 2009 (UTC)

There is already one. {{Fan speculation}}. It doesn't need to be added to the shipping articles because they are all under the Shipping: namepace, which automatically makes them speculation.--RexRacer 00:48, 13 March 2009 (UTC)

Regirock

I was going to change an image on the Regirock page, but I can't, because it's protected by you. Would you mind terribly if you could change that image in the "in the anime" section to this image?

And I have a question to ask. How do you create a page? Are admins the only ones allowed to do that? Hmdwgf 3 April 2009 31:00 (UTC)

Anyone can create a page. Just type in what you want the page to be called in the search bar, and it will give you a redlink. Click on the redlink, and it will give you a blank edit window for the page that you want to create. As for images, the reason that only administrators can change images is that some users get into edit wars over them, with differing opinions on which one is the best. Why do you want the image changed? Is there something wrong with the original one?--RexRacer 01:29, 4 April 2009 (UTC)

Well, I don't like the current image, it's got some artifacting, and it's on another page. Hmdwgf 50:59 4 April 2009 (UTC)

Why did you delete my page on the Regirock in Lucario and the Mystery of Mew? Hmdwgf 5 April 2009 (UTC) 43:03

It wasn't really that notable...--☆Coolピカチュウ! 04:55, 4 April 2009 (UTC)
Well, I thought it was, considering it's a legendary Pokemon in a movie... Hmdwgf 5 April 2009 (UTC) 57:11
True. Bur it did so little besides preventing the group and Kidd to go in the Tree of (Something)--☆Coolピカチュウ! 04:58, 4 April 2009 (UTC)

First off....

I was never 'warned' by another admin about adding the trivia, only to cease the edit war and bring it to the talk page; Second, why is the point of debating said trivia if mods are totally intolerant towards such an idea, and ignore any supporting reason or justification such action? - unsigned comment from Fossilgojira (talkcontribs)

First, Kogoro is one of the most powerful admins on Bulbapedia. Second, you continued to war. Third, it's an opinion. --RexRacer 01:31, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
Your point? I do not fear merely because they have a title. I "continued to war", as you put it, because no compromise had been reached, and that's not even taking into account that 'it's an opinion' is an opinion.Fossilgojira 01:49, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
For clarification, we do not allow opinions, as they can vary from person to person. No more plz. — THE TROM — 01:35, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

Hey

Why'd you delete that, is there any way to restore it, if so please do, if you object to restoring it tell me why, if you can't restore tell me--Pokemonguy1 Pikachu 03:51, 9 April 2009 (UTC)

I believe that it was deleted to hastily as well. Why does Bruno's Onix get a page but not this? --ケンジガール 03:53, 9 April 2009 (UTC)
and honestly Johanna's Glameow has a page.--Pokemonguy1 Pikachu 03:55, 9 April 2009 (UTC)
It was voted so over AIM. I can restore it, but it is an unnecessary article, so I will not.--RexRacer 03:58, 9 April 2009 (UTC)

Need Help in posting News!!!!

Hello, I am a regular bulbapedia user and i want to submit a news. The source of the news is Pokebeach. My question is that can i post those news which are taken from pokebeach or it is a copyright case. I want to post a news on bulbapedia but i have a confusion of being copyrighted. So please help me and reply me as soon as possible. --♫♪Adyniz♪♫ 07:17, 11 April 2009 (UTC)

Okay, stop right there. Don't post this anywhere else, you are spamming everyone's talk pages... First, you should ask yourself if you are plagiarizing the article. If not, you should be fine. Second, post a message on Argy's talk page on Bulbanews and ask her. She is the one you are looking for.--RexRacer 07:21, 11 April 2009 (UTC)

Hay buddy, i am not spamming but the problem is that no body is replying me. I just want to help bulbapedia and i asked from them because they are the admins. But still i am sorry to disturb you guys. Thanks alot for helping me. --♫♪Adyniz♪♫ 07:24, 11 April 2009 (UTC)

...you posted on four talk pages in less than 15 minutes. Not everyone is always online. It's okay, though. Just remember, okay? --RexRacer 07:26, 11 April 2009 (UTC)

Okay i will try to remember it. So now can i ask about it from argy and post my problem on Argy's Discussion page.--♫♪Adyniz♪♫ 07:31, 11 April 2009 (UTC)

Trainer Card Template

RexRacer, I think people will actually use this template. By the time you had written that comment, I was almost done with it. I think that people will want to use this template, and if they don't, then it can be deleted, but before then, let's give it a try? Pandamonia 23:41, 19 April 2009 (UTC)

Well first, TTE wrote the initial coding for it, so you might want to ask him before you post it as a template. Also, tempaltes for the userspace are generally discouraged unless they are usertags, which I like to get rid of anyway. Mainly I didn't want you spending a lot of time making a template that I was planning on deleting. Idk... Ask someone else. Ask TTE for a second opinion and see if he is even okay with you using his work.--RexRacer 23:46, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
If and only if it's okay with the Echidna-in-Chief, create it as a usersubpage (i.e. User:Example/Subpage). Do not put it in the main template space. — THE TROM — 00:05, 20 April 2009 (UTC)
Replied to [THE TROM]- unsigned comment from Pandamonia (talkcontribs)

Why are you reverting...

...my edits? They're those that have been blocked for infinite...gone...never to come again...sockpuppets, etc. MAGNEDETH and I have been doing this, and I'm just cleaning up those pages... ht14 03:51, 22 April 2009 (UTC)

Maybe...but Zackattack's page doesn't even have anyone "yelling" at him at all... ht14 03:53, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
Pages are only to be deleted if they have the welcome on them. Otherwise they are kept for archival purposes. --RexRacer 03:54, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
Zachattack... ht14 03:55, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
Notability has nothing to do with it. It's the talk page of a vandal that vandalized before we had the welcome template up and running.--RexRacer 04:01, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
It's not about notability. As I said earlier, there's no user that said anything at all to him regarding his edits. Simply blocked. Your idea implies that a user from the past could be fine, and then come back a little later, vandalizing, and his page could still be kept, right? ht14 04:03, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
Wait, what?--RexRacer 04:09, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
You could try to figure that out, admin, however, at least understand the Zach issue...nobody else posted on the talk page besides himself... ht14 04:11, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
TTE said he wanted to keep some, so, hold off on the deletion of talk pages. -- MAGNEDETH 04:12, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
I figured THAT much out... ht14 04:14, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
Final question then. How are us "non-admins" supposed to know those sort of updates? ht14 04:17, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
You can get AIM, or you could just take our word for it when things come up. It wasn't really an issue, IMO.--RexRacer 04:23, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
Alrighty then. Thank you, and sorry for wasting your time. Goodnight. ht14 04:25, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
...well? About the Zach user... ht14 21:54, 22 April 2009 (UTC)

So uh...

Can I edit those pages again? I mean the ones with User in front of them? --Mclena45 21:50, 27 April 2009 (UTC)

Go for it, dude. Try to stay under five a day.--RexRacer 22:17, 27 April 2009 (UTC)

Changing talk pages?

You told me not to change them. The only one I changed was my own.....

Just continue this here please... --Catu42 21:48, 4 May 2009 (UTC)

Please undo your edit to the "Gunk Shot" page. If you want proof that is the correct meaning for that move in Japanese, paste ダストシュート into the dictionary here http://www.csse.monash.edu.au/~jwb/cgi-bin/wwwjdic.cgi?1E for your verification. Halogen 04:38, 11 May 2009 (UTC)

Do you speak Japanese?--RexRacer 04:39, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
Because if not, I'm not changing it back. For one, I speak basic Japanese, and that translates as "Dust Shoot". Also, a move is a verb, not an inanimate object. Koffing! Use Garbage Disposal Chute!
...........
See what I mean? Koffing! Use Dust Shoot! If your only proof is an online translator, than it is not moving.--RexRacer 04:44, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
Hi again. Actually, I'm Japanese but I was born here. The reason why I brought it up is that in Japan, "Dust Chute" is an actual word for a garbage disposal box. In the game, you see the Pokemon focus a big ball of gunk and then unleash it onto an enemy - there is no dust particles involved because "dust" is associated with garbage or trash in Japan (if you've played Mega Man, look up Dust Man). The name of the move is actually a pun in Japanese, since it could mean "Garbage Shoot" or "Garbage Chute" depending how you see it. Leaving it as "dust" seems misleading though. Let me know what you think Halogen 17:46, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
I don't really care, to be honest. Seemed odd to me, so I reverted it. It kinda sucks to change things like that around Bulbapedia, because there are so many pages that have the information on them. Also, Dasuto Shuuto (in katakana) seemed much more likely to be Dust Shoot than Rubbish Disposal Chute, you know? If you still want to change it, I guess I'm okay with it... However, I will ask that before doing anything, consult Urutapu, he knows more Japanese than I do. If it's all clear with him, then go for it.--RexRacer 00:53, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
Before I ask him, whatever happened to the Teeter Dance question you had for him? You were right in saying that フラフラダンス is in fact translated as Hula-Hula Dance, and I thought articles had the English name above the Japanese translated name on the info box to the right of the article? Keeping the translation like that is like saying "Sweet Kiss" in Japanese is NOT "Angel's Kiss" (which it is). Halogen 03:35, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
I'm not exactly sure, to tell you the truth. While the definition could be stretched to mean Hula-Hula Dance, it would literally be "Fula-Fula Dance", something that I don't think exists. I could be wrong on this as well, but at the time he outranked me, being an administrator way before I became one. I decided not to argue because arguing with admins usually doesn't get you anywhere on Bulbapedia, and I didn't really care about it (if you haven't already noticed, I'm fairly laid back).
So I guess my answer is that I gave up?--RexRacer 05:30, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
I understand the difference in ranks, but if you're posting inaccuracies, then what's the point of making sure things are correct? フラフラダンス is Hula-Hula Dance (since the fu and hu are interchangeable,) so it should get changed. The same applies with some other moves, and Gunk Shot. I know it's not a huge issue and I'm also pretty laid-back, but all these things add up, don't you think? I'll go over the other translations of moves/items etc. and see if there are other inconsistencies. Halogen 02:07, 13 May 2009 (UTC)
If you'd be willing to sift through all of our translations, I suppose you can. There are definetely inconsistancies throughout the encyclopedia, as well as inacuracies. So go ahead, but come to Urutapu or me before making any changes.--RexRacer 21:05, 23 May 2009 (UTC)

Okay...

Thanks for ditching me, man.--Tavisource 02:55, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver Versions

Why did you revert my edits? What's the matter with them? --Alpha TotodileRWAR!! 22:36, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

Well, let's take a look. They don't really have any need to be there. Play by play, here is why the edits that you made were useless.

Blue was the rival in FRLG. We have no reason to believe that Silver wouldn't be the same, as well. --RexRacer 23:04, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

That was quite educating, to say the least. Thanks. --Alpha TotodileRWAR!! 03:15, 14 May 2009 (UTC)

Talk to Kogoro, all I did was record the results of the AIM chat. --RexRacer 13:50, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

You might enjoy my archive.

People say i can't let things go, but if you look in my archive you'll see that i tried to let go of something and people kept the ball rolling on multiple places. The subheader "Just drop it" is an exellant example of people who need the last word and won't drop it themselves. If i remember some of the people weren't even involved until they wanted that last word. Yami 18:09, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

I know that you've had a bit of a troubled history here in the past, but lets not turn a molehill into a mountain. Yeah, he laughed at you, but I've seen much worse edit summaries D:. Anyway, I was just trying to help. Sorry if you didn't want it.--RexRacer 18:21, 8 June 2009 (UTC)
I'm not getting on your case, its just that for some reason i always end up the bad guy because people want to be on the mods side no matter what, and jump in and cause trouble.
you were neutral/grey on this where everyone else is black and white. This was just a molehole. What happen was I got confused on one thing, (mixing Pichu with Munchlax somehow) and i get taunted and multiple people telling me wrong joining sides without trying to understand the full situation.

Thank you for trying to help, that all i try to do and it blows up in my face. Yami 18:27, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

Edit request

This isn't the most important thing, but could you please see the Template:Character palette template? I'd like you to add an id parameter to the div tag (for example add id="charpalette"). This would allow users to apply custom CSS on the box without changing its default colours; at least on my theme the pure white box on a dark page looks a bit out of place (I can cope with it but I'd like to change it).

Can I have a thorough explanation to why it was deleted? But you said "Try again", so if I create it again, how do I know if it will get deleted once again? Or can you give me some pointers to make it? - unsigned comment from BAC510 (talkcontribs)

Errors I've found so far

In response to your offer, here are the error corrections I suggested so far:

Gengar The word "Danish" should be capitalized in the Origin section.

Onix In the Special Abilities section, the sentence that starts "If Onix takes a hard enough blow and it's body falls apart," that should be "its," not "it's." The Behavior section is a run-on sentence. In the Habitat section, there seems to be a preposition missing, possibly "in."

Drowzee In the anime section, the sentence beginning, "Drowzee was living in abandoned mining town" is missing an article. It should be an abandoned mining town.

Kingler In the second anime Pokédex entry, "whos" should be "whose."

Electrode In the anime Pokédex entry, the word "predictably" is missing a t.

Marowak In the Origin section, "it's" should be "its."

Tangela In the Origin section, it should be "Its Crystal sprite," not "It's."

Horsea In the Behavior section, the sentence ending in "to those who causes it" should probably be "at those who cause it." Also, it should be "coral reefs," not "corals reefs."

Goldeen In the Anime section, it should be "A group of Goldeen were," not "where."

Starmie In the second paragraph of the Special abilities section, it should say "It uses its second" not "It uses it second."

More to come! Thanks! --Trebligoniqua 21:08, 1 November 2009 (UTC)

All done. Thanks so much for telling us about these!--RexRacer 22:49, 1 November 2009 (UTC)

More: Magmar In the Special abilities section, the word "as" is missing in the phrase "such as Smog."


Pinsir In the Behavior section, a sentence ends with a redundant "to dig."

The Minor appearances subsection of the Anime section mixes tenses. Some use the past tense, while some use the present.


Tauros In the Special Abilities section, the phrase "whip themself" is used. I assume it's supposed to be "themselves."

The first sentence in the Behavior section has a comma splice. There should be a semicolon (;) instead.

In the Anime section, Other subsection, a sentence begins "Many Tauros where." It should be "were."

In the Minor Appearances subsection, there is a superfluous article, in the phrase "A group of a Tauros."

In the Trivia section, a sentence begins, "This probably due." Presumably it should have the word "is" between the first two words. --Trebligoniqua 00:00, 3 November 2009 (UTC)

Got 'em. Thanks again!--RexRacer 01:56, 3 November 2009 (UTC)

Staff navigation templates

Pokéwalker berries

If I wanted to include Pokewalker locations to the berry locations list, should I put it under "Generation IV" as one entry, under "Generation IV" giving each location its own listing, or under a new section called "Pokewalker"? --Oz 07:53, 24 November 2009 (UTC)

I am more than happy to help. :) --Oz 17:43, 25 November 2009 (UTC)

Berries color

A Project Berries question for ya: I know currently the berries templates (PrevNext and Infobox) use a blue color scheme. But, since Echy now made color templates based on the backpack pocket's HGSS ingame colors... How about we change the blue to {{Berries color}} green? That way it has an actual in-game context. --electAbuzzzz 18:13, 6 January 2010 (UTC)

News

Umm did you erase the article I made? I'm new at this and I worked really hard on it.--Lambie 09:49, 24 January 2010 (UTC)

It was mostly speculation and old news, to be honest.--RexRacer 22:20, 25 January 2010 (UTC)
But did you guys know about the Togekiss, Manaphy, and Jirachi may have a role? That's what I had put---Lambie 03:27, 25 January 2010 (UTC)
Well, Togekiss appears in the new opening. Two Pokemon that may or may not be in it isn't really anything to spam people's RSS feeds about. We're in the process of adopting a new speculation policy on Bulbanews, so I apologize for any misunderstanding. I think that it's great that you're contributing to Bulbanews though! I encourage you to keep up the good work. While your article was fairly written, the only thing that was wrong with it was the subject matter.--RexRacer 01:03, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
OK, so no more fan speculations got it.Thanks★--Lambie 02:17, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
Hey wait, when you erased my article you said Togekiss was owned by a main character and will probably make an appearance, but it's not owned by any main characters. Misty had a Togetic, but she released it. Are you saying Misty or her Togetic will return in this movie? Just wondering.--Lambie 23:35, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
Dawn is likely to get a Togekiss, as the new opening shows one with her.--RexRacer 00:29, 27 January 2010 (UTC)
Oh thanks for clearing that up, I didn't know that. Sorry I know your probably busy with more important things.--Lambie 02:44, 27 January 2010 (UTC)

Project berrydex; berry page formula issue

The formula for berry yield is wrong. I have detailed the reasons why on the discussion page for it here: talk:berry under the "formula" heading. I also noticed that there have been several issues with the formula. I am vaguely investigating ways in which the current formula could be altered to make it correct, but I can't say how long that will take. There is also the issue that the current formula explanation says nothing about when you get a number that is a decimal; whether it always rounds up to the nearest whole number, or whether it rounds up when it's greater than or equal to .5.

Even if I do discover the correct berry formula, there is no way for me to change it, since it has been locked. (I see that TTEchidna did that, so will I have to give him the info. to put in there?)--Lamb(talk) 23:06, 26 February 2010 (UTC)

No, you can give it to me, or any other administrator. As for the incorrect formula, I barely have any clue as to what the internal game mechanics do, so I'll take your word for it if something is wrong, but I can't really do anything myself to figure out what exactly is the issue. I'd be happy to put anything you discover up, though. Thanks!--RexRacer 03:46, 27 February 2010 (UTC)
Well, the issue is that if you use that formula, it never ends up with the maximum number of berries. It's always one less than the maximum, even if the random number is the most favorable. As soon as the berries I'm growing get done, I'll see how many I get if I don't water at one stage. It could be as simple as adding +1. I'll let you know.--Lamb(talk) 06:04, 27 February 2010 (UTC)

Only include speculation if you HAVE to, and it's something important. Even then, it is a rumor article and should be classified as such.--RexRacer 22:43, 24 April 2010 (UTC)

Hey Rex, I was looking around on Bulbanews and saw that Evkl's user page over on there links to over here instead of his regular user page. Should I redirect this link to his user page so there is no confusion. I saw that the page had been deleted several times before so didn't know exactly. Thanks! –MasterKenobi 13:02, 24 April 2010 (UTC)

Sorry for all the user updates I did, I'm new and I didn't know about the discussion sections yet and I never saw any of the warnings, and you switched me to abuse. Is there anything that i could do to undo that?--- SanjayasMyPapaya

Keep editing the mainspace until it's decided that you have earned the privilege back. 梅子 17:48, 24 April 2010 (UTC)
In ten days you can ask me to remove you from abuse. In the meantime, why don't you edit pages in the main namespace? That's the whole point of this wiki, not userpages.--RexRacer 17:54, 24 April 2010 (UTC)
Okey doke. Thank you for the feedback, and I will do. --SanjayasMyPapaya 19:42, 24 April 2010 (UTC)
