I baked you a cake. —darklordtrom 00:14, 22 October 2009 (UTC)

Ah thanks. That will help a lot. --rockersk08 00:19, 22 October 2009 (UTC)

AIM

You got it? —darklordtrom 21:14, 4 November 2009 (UTC)

Sorry, I don't. What do you need? If necessary, shoot me an e-mail. --rockersk08 21:42, 4 November 2009 (UTC)
I have something you might be able to help with. If you go here you can get an AIM account using an existing email address (or just create an account from scratch). You don't even need to download the program, you can use meebo.com or something. I'd really appreciate it if you could come on. —darklordtrom 21:57, 4 November 2009 (UTC)
I just tried the link and it won't let me create an account. I did check out meebo though. --rockersk08 22:03, 4 November 2009 (UTC)
I do have a Yahoo! Messenger account if that helps. --rockersk08 22:09, 4 November 2009 (UTC)
It doesn't really. I'll send you an email. —darklordtrom 22:11, 4 November 2009 (UTC)

Turtwig

In the show they pronounce it naetoru. I mean how do you pronounce naetle in japanese - unsigned comment from Joshewuu (talkcontribs)

I personally don't know since I don't speak Japanese. But that piece of information has been up for a while and I don't see a reason to contest it. If you really need to know, reach out to an administrator. But it's better to talk it out and be sure rather than wind up in a revert war. --rockersk08 01:57, 20 January 2010 (UTC)

Hey

It's great you're helping out and all, but to avoid edit conflicts and whatnot, can you do other Pokémon? Thanks in advance. ht14 18:00, 10 September 2010 (UTC)

Wait, never mind. I can't read properly... sorry about that. ht14 18:02, 10 September 2010 (UTC)
No sweat. I'm just looking at all the pages that haven't been updated yet and have been picking random ones with the limited time I have. They take some time to fix though. I have to log off soon so I won't be updating till later. Should I focus on one generation or a specific Pokémon type? --rockersk08 18:21, 10 September 2010 (UTC)
I'd suggest specific Pokémon species or those missing the rest of their generations done. That'll definitely avoid most conflicts. ht14 18:26, 10 September 2010 (UTC)

Lorelei's page

When I made an edit to Lorelei's page, the edit was a glitch after I saved the page. Instead of it being her Pokémon, it actually did her whole page. My computer was acting up as it kept on taking me to view source. Explanation covered. PattyMan 05:13, 11 November 2010 (UTC)

Happens quite a bit to me as well. Logging in again usually fixes it for me. But I noticed what you intended to do. No sweat. --rockersk08 06:29, 11 November 2010 (UTC)

Ash's Pikachu

Hi. I'm not agree about what you said. In ep005, when ash battle onix, Ash tried to recall him and the red light came out of the pokeball signifying, that Ash has already placed Pikahu in a Poké ball and certainly it was in ep001 beetween the part when Ash and Professor Oak are electrified and when we see them go out of the Laboratory. We can affirm that Ash choosed one of the six Pokéball that Professor Oak gave to him to be Pikachu's Poké Ball. Falk 19:50, 15 January 2011 (UTC)

The trivia in question refers to the Pokémon first being captured, put into the Poké Ball that way. Pikachu was Ash's starter Pokémon, given to him by Professor Oak, so he did not have to use a Poké Ball to capture it. In the first episode, Professor Oak gave Ash the Poké Ball that held Pikachu. Ash's Squirtle, on the other hand, had to have been put in a Poké Ball after the events of EP012, which is the definition of an "off-screen" capture, put into a Poké Ball. That should clarify the situation.
Also, please use proper spelling. Thanks! --rockersk08 19:59, 15 January 2011 (UTC)
Ok, sorry, apart that i remember you that Pikachu's first Poké Ball has been left empty meaning that his current Poké Ball is one of the six that Oak gave to him in ep001. Falk 20:10, 15 January 2011 (UTC)
I forget to say: Ash choosed one of the six Poké Ball that Professor Oak gave him in ep001 to be Pikachu's Poké Ball so we can affirm that Ash placed him in a Poké Ball "of screen"! Falk 21:06, 15 January 2011 (UTC)
That's not true since Pikachu already had a Poké Ball (the one with the lightning bolt). You should have at least waited until I responded. Try to be a little more patient. Either way, the trivia should be left alone for now. By the way, make sure to indent your talk page comments when you are responding with a colon, as stated in the Talk Page policy. --rockersk08 22:12, 15 January 2011 (UTC)
I responder instead my sister. What you said is false as it's precised in Pikachu's article, the poké ball with the lightning bolt have been left empty: look at ep001 and 005 when Ash tries to recall Pikachu in a regular Poké Ball (the same situation happened to Gary's Blastoise: its Poké Ball has been left empty meaning that Gary's Blastoise has an another Poke Ball, certainly Gary choosed one of the six Poké Ball that Oak gave to him to be Blastoise's Poké ball and same thing for Ash's Pikachu). Jolami 02:10, 16 January 2011 (UTC)
Nothing was ever officially stated, and even then, the piece of trivia is largely irrelevant since Ash's Pikachu is a walking Pokémon. If you checked the talk page for Ash's Pikachu, you would have seen this topic was already brought up, but no final say has been issued. I'll bring it to the Project Anime leader for clarification. By the way, please utilize proper grammar next time. --rockersk08 03:06, 16 January 2011 (UTC)
All right, but today what can we suppose about Pikachu's Poké Ball? Jolami 04:24, 16 January 2011 (UTC)
Concerning Ash's Pikachu, could you please replace the sentence "It is unknown if this Poké Ball was permanent as Ash uses regular Poké Balls" by the sentence "It is unknown if this Poké Ball was permanent as Ash uses a regular Poké Ball" since a pokemon can have only one and same Poké Ball, and the different moments where Ash tried to recall Pikachu to its Poké ball: This Poké ball was the same.

Revisions

Y'know, there's really little point to hiding revisions from over a year ago, plus it makes extra logs in the RC, which doesn't help people watching the RC. If there's any logs that you feel deeply need to be hidden, it would probably be wise to contact an EB member. --P S Yライダー 00:58, 3 February 2011 (UTC)

True indeed. It was something that crept into my mind yesterday and I wanted to at least do my part in keeping past revisions free of malicious vandalism, specifically curse words and such. I'll be sure to discuss it with one of the board if I come across more as well as get input on my recent actions. Thanks though. --rockersk08 01:05, 3 February 2011 (UTC)

Userspace guy

sorry i understand i just couldnt figure how to make the i am a male sing smaller and agisnt the side.--Mastermp45 22:24, 15 February 2011 (UTC)

Hey Rocker, do you have a minute?

Just wanted to drop you a line and introduce myself. My name is Jediknightdtv, but you can call me Jedi, most people on here do. Anyways, I stumbled across your page here, and I thought it was very useful and helpful. Since I am trying to write episode synopses now (I wrote the ones for BW 16 and 17, I am a little busy with school stuff right now, but I will get to the more recent ones as soon as I can, if nobody else gets to them first) I was wondering if I could add it to my page here, under the User Created Pages section. It is mostly a guide to help out new users to the 'pedia, as well as a useful tool for me to put links all in one place that I use often. Anyways, drop me a line on my talkpage if that is okay with you. Nice to meet you, TTYL. --ジェダイの騎士デジタルテレビ 22:20, 25 February 2011 (UTC)

Yes, I know of your contributions here. Indeed, you have my approval in adding my guidelines. I remember drafting it when synopsis contributions were the bulk of my edits. With my busier schedule, it's harder to write summaries, more especially when they're being written earlier and earlier! I know there are still plenty I can write though. Have at it and have fun! --rockersk08 22:47, 25 February 2011 (UTC)
Thanks again, my friend. It is up now. TTYL. --ジェダイの騎士デジタルテレビ 00:56, 26 February 2011 (UTC)

"Display="

Is it needed in items to write "display..."? When i write only itlistbod|Item's name|XXX|game i see both name and icon and when i write itlistbod|Item's name|XXX|game|display=Item's name i see both name and icon too. Jasza676 10:23, 19 April 2011 (UTC)

I only do it to items that would go to redirects otherwise. For example, "Poké Ball" and "Potion" have their own pages, but "Ultra Ball" and "Hyper Potion" are merged into those respective pages. If I didn't include the display function in the template, "Ultra Ball" and "Hyper Potion" would lead to the redirect pages. It isn't bad, but I do it since its standard. --rockersk08 15:17, 19 April 2011 (UTC)

Posting

Thanks! I actually realized that I could condense all of the edits into one myself, but thought that it would be better to show all changes made. I did not realize that I was doing something incorrectly. I will refrain from splitting up my edits in the future. I appreciate you informing me, and if I make any other errors whilst editing, please tell me. Thanks again, --Dem1995 21:34, 19 April 2011 (UTC)

Page Idea

I have a page idea. Do you think it would be okay if I made an article about the "i herd u liek mudkipz" thing under fandom, perhaps? I am asking because my last idea was instantly deleted. SuperAipom7 01:08, 21 April 2011 (UTC)

I personally don't think a whole article could be devoted to it, not unless you got tons of information. I don't know much about it, but then again, I don't pay too much attention to fandom. Keeping the userspace restriction in mind, you could create a rough draft in your userspace of what you want to add, but if you did get anything, it would most likely be merged somewhere. --rockersk08 03:20, 21 April 2011 (UTC)
Another idea: can we start writing articles about the Super Effective comic strip? What I mean is, write articles about each individual strip? SuperAipom7 01:12, 22 April 2011 (UTC)
I suppose you could, so long as it molds well with the page, especially dependent on the length of those summaries. --rockersk08 05:17, 22 April 2011 (UTC)

Alrighty!

Sorry about that. I made several edits to the page and I was looking as to how it would look. :P -- ZeroManArmy 04:42, 22 April 2011 (UTC)

Userspace Policy

On the Userspace Policy page I just wanted to let you know that it still says... "Due to server strain following the English-language release of Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, the userspace was limited strictly to one edit, and then later three edits, per person per day." I think it should be changed to Black and White, correct? -- ZeroManArmy 05:04, 22 April 2011 (UTC)

This was already addressed. --rockersk08 05:17, 22 April 2011 (UTC)

Hiding revisions

Just FYI, vandal revisions only need to be hidden if they have inappropriate content, are advertising, or are excessively large. There's no real need to hide other edits. Werdnae (talk) 06:17, 26 April 2011 (UTC)

Apologies for the late response, but I did it for consistency, also to keep the user's name hidden. I did move a little quickly in cutting out all of his revisions, when I could have simply did some full deletions, others partial. I also didn't want to overly spam the deletion log. I'll keep a closer watch. Thanks! --rockersk08 04:47, 28 April 2011 (UTC)

A little help on two things

More importantly, i am being disconnected/reconnected randomly. Secondly, can i finally after all these months, get my user page editing back?--Ash's Infernape 13:07, 5 May 2011 (UTC)

The connection issue has been happening for quite some time now, and it still isn't resolved. You'll just have to fight through it. Simply go back a page and try again, or simply keep logging in if it says you're logged out. Secondly, asking for your userspace privileges back generally won't do the job, unless it has been a considerable amount of time and you've made productive edits. You haven't made that many mainspace edits since you were put in abuse, despite six months passing. Even then, I wouldn't be able to help you since I don't have the ability to remove you from abuse, that's for Senior Admins and above. You should concentrate on helping out in the mainspace for now. --rockersk08 15:23, 5 May 2011 (UTC)
Okay then, but the cause of not editing userspace Is the lock. Okay then, Mainspace *Focus* --Ash's Infernape 16:23, 5 May 2011 (UTC)

My user page

I can't create my user page. Can you put a character or two so I can create it, please? --Braviapert - (Questions?) 19:16, 24 May 2011 (UTC)

Hey Rocker

Just wanted to drop you a line to let you know that I read your article on the DP series, and I LOVED it! I thought it was extremely well written, articulate, and you made some very good points, all of which I found myself agreeing with as I read it. Just thought you would appreciate the feedback. Anyway, TTYL. --ジェダイの騎士デジタルテレビ 22:21, 24 May 2011 (UTC)

Thanks Jedi! I'm hoping that a response thread is put on the forums when the upgrades are finished so I can get more feedback. --rockersk08 23:39, 24 May 2011 (UTC)

Hei Rockeon

If I edit an article and miss, you correct me?
I am Brazilian, But I still a little of difficulties in English. - unsigned comment from Alysson-A (talkcontribs)

Quick Question

Hey Rockersk08, I'm having trouble editing my User Page and posted the problem on my talk page. I can't edit it at all and I'm not sure why. I was hoping you could take a look. I haven't made an edit in a few days. Also, I'm getting the warning saying my page is getting too big and I'd like to break some parts into sub-pages but I don't know how. For example, I noticed on your page you have your teams for each game on a sub-page. Is there a "Sub-pages for Dummies" page or could you please explain how to start one? Thanks in advance! GReimer 02:07, 14 June 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for clearing that up for me! I only know things about the video games and nothing about the anime, manga, or card game... since that's covered to nearly perfection it's difficult for me to find things to edit. I took a peak at the pages that still need to be written and there's some tweaking still needed to the side games. I went and picked up a copy of Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky and I'll see if I can figure it out enough to add to Bulbapedia... first time playing a Pokémon Mystery Dungeon game though... Do you have any recommendations as to where I guy with my knowledge could start?GReimer 02:13, 17 June 2011 (UTC)
I don't follow the side games that well, but if you going to play through it, why not add here? Lots of red links, you could bring them about. --rockersk08 05:40, 17 June 2011 (UTC)
