Welcome to my talk page! Post here if you need to contact me for any reason.


Shiny Noctowl -- this is Pinkachu's mom. Is there a constructive way you can talk to her rather than call a 10-year old an idiot? Why be a condescending jerk? If you want to be one and call kids names because they make a type-0 at least get your nomenclature right. Type's aren't legally classified by the FCC as spam. Get over it. Now, I'm not going to call you a complete embicile because you classify a type-o as spam, but you may want to do your homework also. If you want to continue to insult her, then take it up with me offline at rthompson@americanlegalsearch.com and we can take it to the FCC. DO NOT insult my child again - be constructive. Rthompson, Esq. Houston Texas

For some reason, the email address wouldn't work. Here is a copy of the message:

Dear Pinkachu's mom,
In response to your comment on this page (http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/User_talk:Shiny_Noctowl) regarding (http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Talk:Pinkachu), I would like to point out that by viewing the earliest revision history (http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/w/index.php?title=Talk:Pinkachu&diff=prev&oldid=175973), which is what the article was first composed of, and by clicking on the "ガール" at the end of the comment's signature, you can see that the offending comment ("You idiot! Tracey was the one with them. Not Brock!") was posted by Kenji-Girl, whose talk page is located here (http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/User_talk:Kenji-girl).

Sincerely, Shiny Noctowl

Pinkachu

Oh so now it's an offending comment. I didn't see you trying to defend that kid the first time. You could at least said that I was trying to keep out vandalism on our site. But no. Instead you were quick to point the finger at me and let her paint me out as some kind of jerk who picks on small children. It's not like I new this was a little kid. For all I knew it could of been a 30 year old man trying to be annoying. Was I wrong for using the word idiot, yes. But I was only angry because I'm annoyed when people make awful pages like that and don't bother to read the rules. Now I got this mom on my ass about it. Anyway, thanks a lot. --ケンジガール 02:48, 4 September 2007 (UTC)

Eh, the mom's just an internet tough guy, Kenji-girl. Also, Shiny Noctowl, it's best to simply tell the person straight out how the hell they broke the rules (although parents seem to have a way of missing the fact that their kids are sometimes the instigators). I think this is the first time we ever got a kid whining to their parent and their parent (who can't spell typo or imbecile) whining at our users. People need to grow a thicker skin, especially when they have a screen and probably hundreds of miles separating them. Plus they can't just go thinking "oh it was just her first mistake". That stuff got old a loooooooong time ago. It may be the first mistake she made, but it's far from the first we had to fix. TTEchidna 10:35, 4 September 2007 (UTC)

Flower Paradise in movie 11

I have noticed, rather tardly, that you ignored my revision to the Flower Paradise page and essentially reinserted the same paragraph. We at Bulbapedia expect intelligent editing to be met with some minimal respect; even if you strongly felt against removing your content, you should have explained your reasoning as I had explained my own. By not doing that you forced your own belief into a page that should represent facts or at least a consensus; what sort of gratification does that give you?

The flower field in the Regigigas movie teaser should support speculation that the featured Pokémon will be Shaymin, as opposed to Arceus. It so happens that this comes as no surprise with or without the teaser. Now, a precedent lies in no less than ten movies, that no matter how reminiscent a movie setting is of a game location, it is not supposed to represent said location. That is to say, movie 1's New Island is not Cinnabar Island (where Mewtwo was created in the games), movie 2's Shamouti Island is not Navel Rock or any other game island, movie 3's Unown ruins are not Ruins of Alph (which, in the anime, are home only to fossils), movie 4's Celebi forest is not Ilex Forest (also visited in the anime on another occasion), movie 5's Altomare City is not part of Southern Island, movie 7's Deoxys crash place is not Birth Island, and finally, movie 9's land and ocean settings are far remote from Summerland beach (I doubt that any of movies 6, 8 and 10 has even been seriously associated with a game location). What leads you to conclude that movie 11 and Flower Paradise are so inherently destined to intertwine that a sudden exception is in order? For the record, there is no guarantee that the final movie will even feature a setting of a similar nature to that shown in the teaser (movie 8's teaser showcased an island that, be it Faraway Island or not, was nowhere to be seen in the actual film).

If to be fair, it is possible that Flower Paradise is not bounded geographically to any one location, being conjured along with Seabreak Path by Shaymin wherever a special stone monument is found (and when someone has expressed gratitude). This is hinted by Professor Oak during the game event, alluding to a similar monument in Kanto. If the movie's plot were to include the conjuring of a flower garden in which Shaymin resided, then you would be able to properly link the movie setting to the game location as being a product of Shaymin's powers, but even then you would not be able to claim they are one and the same. --Unown Lord.

I meant that Shaymin will probably be involved, but you removed that too. --Shiny NoctowlTalk|Trivia quiz 20:57, 5 September 2007 (UTC)

Threatning e-mails

Again. Thanks a lot for ratting me out. That psyco mom is sending me threatning e-mails now and calling me names that I can't even mention. I hope your happy. --ケンジガール 05:28, 6 September 2007 (UTC)

I didn't mean for the message to her to sound how it did. And, to stop her emails, you can always set your email to block her address. I was getting threatening emails from her too. --Shiny NoctowlTalk|Trivia quiz 12:16, 6 September 2007 (UTC)

The code for your signature is much more complex than it needs to be. Remove the surrounding table and you should be fine. - 振霖T 01:45, 8 September 2007 (UTC)

I have the table so that it links to the page on Octillery instead of to its image page. -Shiny NoctowlTalk|Trivia quiz
01:47, 8 September 2007 (UTC)

Well... there may be alternative methods. But the main problem is that tables are block elements, so they always cause line breaks. - 振霖T 01:55, 8 September 2007 (UTC)

As the founder of Bulbapedia I assure I do care very much about the image of Bulbapedia. But I also have to be concerned about the continued existence of Bulbapedia. Unless someone pledges to donate something on the order of $100 per month - which doesn't even cover half the hosting bill - funding is going to continue to be a major concern. - 振霖T 07:13, 10 September 2007 (UTC)

Your Team...

...Needs a Garchomp. It is a really overpowered Pokémon and has great stats. Just some advice. May I assume you know where to catch a Gible? -Politoed666 01:37, 11 September 2007 (UTC)

I know how to catch Gible, and I already have one that is evolved into a Gabite, but it takes forever to level up, and especially to such a high level. --Shiny NoctowlTalk | Fun 01:39, 11 September 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, I know it does. You know, if you've beaten the elite four you can go and fight your rival every day for a lot of experience. -Politoed666 01:46, 11 September 2007 (UTC)
Only on weekends. Blink 10:45, 22 September 2007 (UTC)

Route 224 trainers

Hi! Thanks for improving my template. Now it looks really nice! However, I have a question: One of my contributions was Route 224 trainers section, done with all Pokemon and their levels. Now, levels are missing, and - in my opinion, they are.. um.. quite important, aren't they?

So, now it's my turn to improve your template: User:Piotr mil/TrainerPokémon

Spr DP Ace Trainer M 1.png
Ace Trainer Ruben

User:Piotr mil/TrainerPokémon User:Piotr mil/TrainerPokémon Winnings: PokémonDollar.png 3240

Looks better, doesn't it?

(one more question:when I type:

 User:Piotr mil/TrainerPokémon|061|Poliwhirl|Water|||54|♂

the minisprite doesn't load, but when i add "gif", the sprite shows. My template HAS {{{5|gif}}} part, so I'm stuck, because I don't know where's the problem). Piotr mil 16:26, 11 September 2007 (UTC)

Animespecies template

Gary's Umbreon was an Eevee before. You have to include that. I think it'd be better just to not have the template, but eh, maybe it's just me. *shrug* TTEchidna 04:43, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

Hi! This is Hieifireshadow, and I was wondering how you got those nifty little sidebar things on your user page. I really like them and I want to learn how to put them up. :D

~HFS

You mean the "About me" section? Well, to do that, type in <div class="userbox">. Then, type in the templates about you. For example, {{User Male}}, {{User Smart}}, and {{User Glasses}}. Then, type in </div>.
Here is what the example sidebar should look:
034.png This user identifies as male.
480.png This user is intelligent.
MaxGlasses.jpg This user wears glasses.

And here is what the wikicode to make it was:
<div class="userbox">
{{User Male}}
{{User Smart}}
{{User Glasses}} </div>

There are lots of templates to chose from. You put the tags on by typing in {{The name of the template}} You can find the templates here. Some templates, such as {{User Favorite}}, require you to specify information, separated by |. For example, if your favorite Pokémon is Uxie, you would type {{User Favorite|480|Uxie}} and get

480.png This user's favorite Pokémon is Uxie.

--Shiny NoctowlTalk | Fun 20:56, 14 September 2007 (UTC)

Thanks a lot, Nocti! ^^ I'm really fond of those things; soon enough, I think there'll be about a million on my page. XD Thanks again.

~HFS

PH34R

That's bad...you don't think it's the same guy, do you...? -Politoed666 21:02, 14 September 2007 (UTC)

Well i'm ready for him Bring it on!

I only hope there are some admins on right now...-Politoed666 21:07, 14 September 2007 (UTC)
I don't think so. I haven't seen any edits by admins for a while, and TTEchidna hasn't responded to my warning message on his talk page. --Shiny NoctowlTalk | Fun 21:08, 14 September 2007 (UTC)

I bet that he has a million windows open and he is going to save tem all at once --Theryguy512

Wow....you're really taking what i said about the million windows to the extreme. I was just joking when i said that P.S. Do ya think that we'll get admin rights for telling them?

Hey, again.

Well, I have another problem. I can't get the template "User Loves" or "User Region" to work on the sidebar type thing. The Absol thing only shows up when I copy and paste from the "User Loves" page. I took that code and filled it with Absol, but it's really big and at the bottom now. I think the easiest way to understand is to look at my user page. I'm going to be leaving soon (won't be back til tomorrow or so), so I might or might not be able to fix it as soon as a message is sent, but I will fix it eventually because I have a weird form of OCD. XD

Anyways, thanks for the help before (I have, like, 30 templates on there now)!

~HFS

Thanks!

Hey, I have everything fixed now. :D Thanks a lot!

~Taiya (HFS)

Sprite template

The "both" status is mostly just for Pokémon with gender differences, like Venusaur. Cleffa, however, is the same for both genders, so "none" would technically suffice...

I probably should've made it "difference" and "none", since that'd make more sense. Aren't I a blockhead? TTEchidna 22:19, 15 September 2007 (UTC)

Random Number

I'm afraid I know nothing about that...I'm sorry, buku. ;-; -Sketchies 19:17, 16 September 2007 (UTC)

Animated icons

If you wanted them on the Pokémon infobox, you'd be better to upload them to the archives than to just steal PE2K's bandwidth. I do think they'd be a nice touch, but... well, we can't just link to the images offsite, you see. They'd be pissed. TTEchidna 04:56, 17 September 2007 (UTC)

Okay. --Shiny NoctowlTalk | Contribs 12:11, 17 September 2007 (UTC)
And it'd definitely be a bad idea to do like you did to the infobox just today. That looks... really bad. Lemme discuss it with the others and we'll see what we should do about the mini sprites. TTEchidna 21:14, 17 September 2007 (UTC)
Psst. Really, though. We don't need the MS sprites everywhere. We'll figure it out. TTEchidna 21:27, 17 September 2007 (UTC)
Yea, i was wondering why we have those there Theryguy512 21:46, 17 September 2007 (UTC)

...

How do I get one of those information-side-bar-things? I want one of those.

Arceus

You asked why the Dragon-type and poison-type arceus looks the same? that is actually the dragon-type. look for the Arceus Factor in serebii.net. The poison-type looks different.

Can you fix the spooky plate? it's the same as the dread plate you'll also see that it's different on the Arceus Factor on serebii.net.

Thanks!

Thanks for starting my page for me. Angerman 23:58, 18 September 2007 (UTC)

No problem. --Shiny NoctowlTalk | Contribs 23:59, 18 September 2007 (UTC)

Edit count

The edit count I publish has certain criteria including but not limited to the requirement that the edits must be part of a page that is not currently a redirect or deleted. You currently have 1032 counted edits. (0.8%) - 振霖T 07:20, 19 September 2007 (UTC)

How many do I have? -Theryguy512 10:44, 19 September 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for the warning

I'll be sure to keep a lookout. Unfortunately, I have classes to go to so I can't be on all day. But when I am on, I'll definitely be checking this out. --PAK Man Talk 12:28, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

Yeah?

Yeah, so what? I don't really think its serious. After all, one account is all he needs... Optimus35Talk | DP 12:44, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

?

Hey, Shiny Noctowl, do you like practical jokes? PH34RME!' 13:14, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

I will try to keep an eye on that account. TheBlazikenMaster 13:45, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

Signature

Um, do you know how to get a pic on my signature to link to something? Theryguy512 15:46, 22 September 2007 (UTC)

Shiny Noctowl tried it once, but the pics won't stay on the same line...Optimus35Talk | DP 02:40, 23 September 2007 (UTC)

DP screens

How exactly did you get those? TTEchidna 22:47, 22 September 2007 (UTC)

User Buddhist

Why did you just revert my edit? I consider myself part-Buddhist, and believe me, I know that Buddhists meditate. Read the Wikipedia Article, before you go around changing the picture to a Spiritomb (which is as irrelevant, as, say Charmander. Oh, and I hope you don't change the Hindu one back, too, because I've never seen a meditating Hindu. -Politoed666

Okay, so it's relevant. More so than Charmander. But who is going to know that? I'll bet not many people know Spiritomb's origin. And everybody knows that meditating is associated with Buddhism, so, even if Spiritomb is TECHNICALLY more relevant, Meditite is more mainstream. It's significally easier to make the connection. -Politoed666

Fishing :)

Is there some way to make sure people don't cheat? Like having them sign every time they fish? Also, is a 95 lb. Kabutops good? -Politoed666

No, there is no other way besides the honor system. And yes, a 95lb Kabutops is good. I chose Pokémon that all weigh about 80lb normally, because that is the size of the sprites, so that a regular weight Pokémon would have a normal sized sprite. --Shiny NoctowlTalk | Contribs 21:03, 28 September 2007 (UTC)
You know, getting something every tiime is not that fun, try putting something like 'A Gabite ate your fishing pole.' (Hilarious) Or 'You caught an old fishing boot'. Optimus35Talk | DP 05:41, 29 September 2007 (UTC)

Manaphy I.D. Number

Sorry about reverting your edit about the Manaphy I.D. Number on the Trainer ID number page. Because you edited it before noon, I thought you were guessing. --Theryguy512 12:40, 29 September 2007 (UTC)

Triple Finish Pics

Dude! Why did you edit over my triple finish pic? (here: http://archives.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Image:Triple_Finish.jpg) --Theryguy512 12:51, 29 September 2007 (UTC) P.S. Yes, I'm MAD!

We already had that picture. --Shiny Noctowl 23:53, 30 September 2007 (UTC)
Well can you please upload your pic under another name? --Theryguy512 11:10, 1 October 2007 (UTC)

Screenshots

How did you take screens of the D/P Legendaries? Because I have always been trying to figure out the Software or Action Replay-type thing that you use. --悪臭の人 13:12, 29 September 2007 (UTC)

I got them from serebii.net. --Shiny NoctowlTalk | Contribs 20:08, 29 September 2007 (UTC)
