Well, another month, another clean slate. Now don't everyone go editing the page when its protection expires... TTEchidna

Can you fix this?

I tried to archive Talk:Main Page but I did it wrong. Can you please do a history merge on it to fix the history? Baby G 22:05, 28 August 2008 (UTC)

Problem resolved TTE, no need to worry. (no pun intended) --ケンジガール 23:04, 28 August 2008 (UTC)
Hey, don't you start making fun of me, too. TTEchidna 04:47, 29 August 2008 (UTC)

Can I retract my vote?

I voted for Porygon-Z to be an admin but I want to retract it. Is that okay? It was here. Rpp 01:13, 30 August 2008 (UTC)Rpp

Uhm... I... guess? TTEchidna 01:20, 30 August 2008 (UTC)
Nevermind. Porygon-Z wants that vote. Thanks anyway. Rpp 22:03, 30 August 2008 (UTC)Rpp


I hope you don't mind the I changed it. It really had a wrong spelling. tc26 06:17, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

Categorize is the correct spelling... here at least. TTEchidna 06:22, 30 August 2008 (UTC)
Oh, are we always supposed to use American spelling? I've probably used a British-ism at least once on here. Don't know if I'll be able to find it though. Flicky1991 08:46, 30 August 2008 (UTC)
Well by "here" I meant more the US. Bulbapedia's not yet set a policy officially... though we do prefer that people don't go just changing the spellings randomly. TTEchidna 18:24, 30 August 2008 (UTC)


Could you make a template for Greek too?--Fern 24 08:55, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

I didn't even know that one could be made. May I make one too?--M-M-DRule! 09:07, 30 August 2008 (UTC)
Anyone can make a babel template... All you gotta do is follow the style of the others. Heck even the one used on BulbaBot's page is in the same style... TTEchidna 18:22, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

Ash's Primeape

Which pic is better? <picture no longer available> or <picture no longer available>--KukiTalk 20:04, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

Left one looks cleaner. TTEchidna 20:05, 30 August 2008 (UTC)
What do you mean by "cleaner"? Baby G 20:10, 30 August 2008 (UTC)
I dunno. It looks better. TTEchidna 20:15, 30 August 2008 (UTC)
But it's too dark, and we've had the other for 22 months!--KukiTalk 20:16, 30 August 2008 (UTC)
But PrimeapeGoesBananas.gif doesn't have a link source, while Ash's Primeape.png does. Baby G 20:17, 30 August 2008 (UTC)
Gifs also suck. TTEchidna 20:18, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

Not every pic NEEDS A LINK SOURCE!--KukiTalk 20:19, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

I personally think we can find one better than both of them. The one on the left, while of a superior file type (PNG), looks a bit distorted. The one on the right, on the other hand, is of an inferior file type (GIF) and, as such, some of the colors got lost in translation. Additionally, the nature of the images suggests that a good image from a middle ground (JPEG) may in fact be the best solution in this case.
Of course, that's just my . I ain't going to argue over a final decision regardless of how it goes. --Shiningpikablu252 20:21, 30 August 2008 (UTC)
@Kuki: Link sources are important so we can trace images to exactly where they came from. Baby G 20:22, 30 August 2008 (UTC)
Personally I'd prefer it if we could get them straight from the episode. Anyone got the DVDs and a computer that plays 'em? TTEchidna 20:23, 30 August 2008 (UTC)
Did u c what Baby G just said?--KukiTalk 20:24, 30 August 2008 (UTC)
Well, the link source I provided for Ash's Primeape.png is a YouTube video, and because the YouTube video has no commercials in it, I think whoever uploaded the YouTube video, got the episode from a DVD of theirs. Baby G 20:26, 30 August 2008 (UTC)
And there it is. TTEchidna 20:26, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

And I quote Baby G: @Kuki. End quote--KukiTalk 20:27, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

That still doesn't change the fact its a crappy picture and it's an eye sore. Youtube huh? Oh wow what a great source. Now people can know Bulbapedia gets pictures from an illegally posted video. --ケンジガール 20:28, 30 August 2008 (UTC)
That's how most people watch the raws anyway... because despite living in a globalized world both Japan and the US go "wah" when anyone wants to get their stuff legally... TTEchidna 22:28, 30 August 2008 (UTC)
I used to have the disc until it blew up...Θρtιmαtum♏Talk|Links01:24 31 Aug 2008

willing to help!

I know that Bulbapedia needs help with the moves and i'm will ing to do a lot! The only thing stoping me is that I don't really understand how to work the whole wiki thing. So if you can help I will do a lot more work on the site! Rucario64 21:10, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

Look at how others edit by checking the recent changes. Read over the manual of style. You'll get it. TTEchidna 22:29, 30 August 2008 (UTC)


Can I make a Category for Pokémon Events? (Ex:Pokémon Rocks America, Poké-Fiesta, etc..)--☆Coolピカチュウ! 08:18, 31 August 2008 (UTC)

Nevermind.--☆Coolピカチュウ! 08:24, 31 August 2008 (UTC)
How can I update my calender to my time zone and what is this for?--☆Coolピカチュウ! 07:24, 1 September 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for fixing the clock, calender thing but what is the thing I have hidden for on the Calender?--☆Coolピカチュウ! 05:36, 2 September 2008 (UTC)
Well, that was initially meant for me to have it be special on game anniversaries, but it didn't work so I took it out of mine. TTEchidna 05:38, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

Okay. Thank You.--☆Coolピカチュウ! 06:03, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

Do the Shadow moves have to be updated to Pokémon Platinum? And how can I find the pages that need to be made to Pokémon Platinum standard?--☆Coolピカチュウ! 02:51, 3 September 2008 (UTC)

Not have to, since it's not urgent, but should be after the rest are done. TTEchidna 02:52, 3 September 2008 (UTC)
Okay. But how can I locate the pages that need to be updated?--☆Coolピカチュウ! 03:03, 3 September 2008 (UTC)
Those that aren't in the category of them updated are the ones you should... there's no way to decategorize pages. TTEchidna 04:04, 3 September 2008 (UTC)
Okay.--☆Coolピカチュウ! 06:51, 3 September 2008 (UTC)

Guess what

I had a dream last night involving a group of people referred to as "the admins of all the sites I go on". Since I don't know what you looked like, you looked like some random 12-year-old boy. Strangely, the only admin who I actually know didn't appear. BTW, I don't know why I'm telling you this. Flicky1991 09:06, 31 August 2008 (UTC)

That's odd, considering I'm about eight years older... TTEchidna 09:24, 31 August 2008 (UTC)
How's my dream supposed to know that? It also thought I knew Vernon Kay and can breathe underwater. :O Flicky1991 10:33, 31 August 2008 (UTC)
At least you didn't meet your friend's fanfic characters. TTEchidna 00:05, 1 September 2008 (UTC)
So, what did I look like in this dream now? :P -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 01:15, 1 September 2008 (UTC)
Since I've never heard of you, it would have been surprising if you appeared...
By admins, I meant, like, the main admins. No offence. :) Flicky1991 15:22, 1 September 2008 (UTC)
Hey Jio...BURN! ;) MoldyOrange 15:23, 1 September 2008 (UTC)


We were supposed to trade rembember? Lugia Fan Club rules!!!LugiaRules!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" 01:16, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

Yeah... when was that, though? And for what? Wasn't it a DeepSeaScale? TTEchidna 01:42, 1 September 2008 (UTC)
Yees it was a deep sea scale for my reaper cloth and it was almost 2 months ago. Lugia Fan Club rules!!!LugiaRules!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" 15:25, 1 September 2008 (UTC)
Well... let's schedule a date and time. This coming Sunday at 3 PM CDT good? TTEchidna 01:10, 2 September 2008 (UTC)
4 PM ET? OK! Lugia Fan Club rules!!!LugiaRules!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" 12:59, 2 September 2008 (UTC)
Now just remind me of it... TTEchidna 18:36, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

Wormadam, Shellos and Gastrodon

Can you please fix their sprites in this page? I'm not being able to get the three different Wormadam sprites or the two Shellos and Gastrodon sprites.--M-M-DRule! 05:13, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

Fixed. TTEchidna 05:18, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

On this page as well please...--M-M-DRule! 09:33, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

It was right, the template just didn't have the support for it yet. Tell me if any others need integrated support. TTEchidna 01:16, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

One more thing! Why is the Giratina Origin Forme sprite not working in this page? I think it is not uploaded yet. Am I right? If yes, then from which site may I get an image from where I can upload it?--M-M-DRule! 12:10, 4 September 2008 (UTC)

Move Accuracy

Is there some guideline of how the accuracy of a move should be worded? The damage too. I'm seeing alot of different things. Moves with 90% accuracy have different things such as "slightly inaccurate" or "mostly accurate", but in my opinion should all have the same. Porygon-Z 06:24, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

We should probably decide on a set list depending on the accuracy, and mark it off on the MoveDex project page or the formatting guide. It shouldn't be too massive of a project to sync all the moves up to a single standard. -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 08:15, 2 September 2008 (UTC)
Yeah. That'd be a good plan. TTEchidna 08:36, 2 September 2008 (UTC)


I thought the block length you gave him was a bit harsh, seeing as other vandals, such as Servercrash vandalized much worse and got less time. Servercrash added "HEY THERE KIDS I'M GONNA FIND OUT WHERE YOU LIVE A RAPE YOUR FAMILY" to pages, and I think that warrants a tougher block than what EditMaster did. Therefore, I shortened EditMaster's block length. If you think I was wrong to do so, you're welcome to lengthen the block time. --ニョロトノ666 21:03, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

if thats the case, i hope "Servercrash" got upped to an infinite block. thats completely uncalled for. as for EditMaster, he falls into a category of, in my opinion, "users whom will never be useful contributors". -- MAGNEDETH 22:29, 2 September 2008 (UTC)
I still don't see why these people don't get infinite bans. THEY'RE NOT GOING TO COME BACK AND MAKE GOOD EDITS. Sheesh. Porygon-Z 23:24, 2 September 2008 (UTC)
exactly my point. -- MAGNEDETH 23:42, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

Bad name

Since you're an admin and you can see deleted pages, I want you to look at this template and tell me whether you find it useful or not, because Moldy orange keeps deleting my templates without even asking other admins if the templates are useful or not. Baby G 00:37, 3 September 2008 (UTC)

I think he has enough common sense to know if they're useful or not...Porygon-Z 01:45, 3 September 2008 (UTC)
If anything a merge template should exist. TTEchidna 01:50, 3 September 2008 (UTC)
You mean Template:Merge? (It already does exist.) MoldyOrange 01:57, 3 September 2008 (UTC)
Okay then! Well, basically, it's an admin's decision alone what to do with a template. We don't have to convene for everything; that'd be like having to have a Senate vote every day about what each Senator should get for lunch. TTEchidna 02:08, 3 September 2008 (UTC)


Hey, my fav admin! Fabu-Vinny had protected Ash's page due to "warring over manga Pokemon." Missingno. Master Had put out Ash's befriended Pokemon into the table. Afterwards, Kenji-girl reverted it, where then Missingno. Master reverted the revert. Then I talked to him and found out it was just a misunderstanding, so I reverted the revert of the revert. That's not an edit war. So my point is this: I think Fabu-Vinny should figure things out before acting. I think he always misuses his powers. Another example will be the time I didn't know about the "personal image rule". He deleted all my pictures without even telling anyone. He didn't even stop to think if I had back-up files or not. But luckily, I had a copy in my hard drive. I think better admins like you should talk to him about this. It's really getting on OUR nerves. Thanks for your time.--☆Tavisource 00:04, 4 September 2008 (UTC)

The two image rule has been here since the beginning, if you didn't know it, it is your own fault. And, "The revert of the reverted revert" is an edit war and it was since Kenji girl was reverted, you should have listened to her the first time. Fabu-vinny is just doing what he is supposed to do and believes is best, he became an admin for a reason you know: he has helped Bulbapedia and he knows a whole lot more about what needs to be done and how to do it than you ever will. If you don't like him as an admin, tough luck; your opinion on what you think of him isn't going to change his position over you! MoldyOrange 00:30, 4 September 2008 (UTC)
Moldy orange, I think you've got it wrong. I'm on Kenji-girl's side. Missingno. Master started an edit war with HER and I stopped point is that the war isn't going on, so why does it have to be protected. Get it?--☆Tavisource 04:45, 4 September 2008 (UTC)
Because you know how some people can't let an edit war drop. It was protected to prevent the edit war until tempers cool. Which will be the end of the month. TTEchidna 06:03, 4 September 2008 (UTC)
Fabu-Vinny's a pretty cool guy, from what I can tell. Those situations were just flukes, and they certainly weren't personal attacks against you. Admins can't always take the time to fully research a situation; TTE once chastised me for not using link templates, when I wasn't even the guy who added those links. Anyway, just be more open to him, and I'm sure you'll grow to like him. --Martonimos((Argh|Blargh)) 06:20, 4 September 2008 (UTC)
Exactly! You can't even trust me not to screw up at least once! TTEchidna 06:43, 4 September 2008 (UTC)
You will notice that I set up a discussion on the talk page - the idea was to just keep the article protected until the situation was sorted there. But as no one has responded to it, I can't see any sign of the issue being sorted. As for the images, as I explained at the time, that was just part of my attempting to lessen the ongoing custom sprite issue. Shiningpikablu252 also took action in that area so it wasn't just me. --FabuVinny |Talk Page| 16:47, 4 September 2008 (UTC)

k....sorry guys. I was just too confused.--☆Tavisource 22:54, 4 September 2008 (UTC)

Can you make a ruling please?

I have been having a dispute where both sides think they are right and refuse to budge and would like your input because im being told something about policy that makes no sense. The Placebo Effect 03:43, 4 September 2008 (UTC)

Stranger things have happened in those console games. Remember, you can get a Pikachu with Surf from it, and in Gen II, a Gligar with Earthquake, while BOTH are incompatible with the machines that teach the moves (Gligar in Gen II only). If CP or someone else can provide where the information lies in the game (hell, we could even go to someone who ripped the game's code; they'd know for sure!) I can verify it... but really, how can you even trust me...?
It's assuming good faith in all edits. Asking doesn't hurt, though. Removing it for no reason does. TTEchidna 06:09, 4 September 2008 (UTC)
Well, the person who added it didn't claim anything else, he just added it not saying how or where it is from. He just said that it is there with showing any proof i.e. a picture. Since this is an outlandish claim that seems false, i feel it warrents being removed first and then being discussed/tested. And if you read the conversation you'll see they can't provide info on where it is. Instead of trying to prove it exsits, they want me to prove it doesnt exsist (which is harder) The Placebo Effect 12:03, 4 September 2008 (UTC)
But My bigger question is this: Is it really policy that if a fact is unproved, it must be discussed before removing it? If so, can I be linked to it? The Placebo Effect 12:09, 4 September 2008 (UTC)
No, that's not policy, it's just that the person pretty much proved it in my opinion. But I don't personally have an AR to screw with, so... I'm getting Magnedeth to do it. TTEchidna 02:34, 5 September 2008 (UTC)

i have disproved this. TM17 keeps the same properties as Protect, but, it does allow any Pokemon to learn any attack, except Regigias, and other Pokemon that cant learn TMs. -- MAGNEDETH 01:07, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

New Pokemon?

I think you should put something on the main page about the 59 Pokemon that they're going to add in the Sinnoh Dex. It was confirmed by some Pokemon merchandise advertisement.--☆Tavisource 03:19, 5 September 2008 (UTC)

They're gonna what.
Well that proves a problem... What the hell are we gonna do now?! TTEchidna 03:46, 5 September 2008 (UTC)
Hold on, I just talked to...umm...I can't remember his username, but he said to read a comment Unown Lord had posted. He said something about how the 210 Pokemon were just the merchandise or something like that, so It's the merchandise that is coming with 210 Unown Pokemon, that are not necessarily in the game, but to represent the Pokemon in Platinum. But this statement has no proof as of'm confused...hold on...I'll be back...--☆Tavisource 03:51, 5 September 2008 (UTC)
Got it...okay, I'm not confuse anymore. This is what ACTUALLY happened. They are coming with collectibles that include 210 Pokemon REPRESENTING the Sinnoh Pokedex. So we can't assume that the Pokedex itself will be changed. But on the other hand, don't you think they will add Giraina and maybe Shaymin into the Dex...after all, Giratina IS the don't chill yet, Platinum will be causing traffic on Bulbapdia next week. So my point is that I think there should be an article about the 210 Pokemon thing representing the Dex.--☆Tavisource 03:56, 5 September 2008 (UTC)
Here, read this from Serebii; they NEVER post false news: "A new advertisement advertising another bit of Pokémon Merchandise has given the implication that the Sinnoh Dex has been enhanced. According to it, there are 59 further Pokémon in Sinnoh to make the final amount 210. This does not mean for sure however that this is also true in Platinum, but it does seem likely due to many instances within the game such as Giratina being the mascot, Shaymin's Glacidia Flower being available early in the game and so forth. Chances are that these 59 Pokémon comprise of the new Pokémon that were not in the Sinnoh Dex in Diamond & Pearl and any pre-evolutions that they may have."--☆Tavisource 03:59, 5 September 2008 (UTC)
Well we'll just have to see then... TTEchidna 06:37, 5 September 2008 (UTC)


I have some troubles with the shining sprite of Steelix in Emerald... I have uploaded it 3 times now, but it won't show the image. Please can you fix it? hfc2X 04:57, 5 September 2008 (UTC)

Forget it... it was a problem with the program xD hfc2X 05:31, 5 September 2008 (UTC)
Heh? TTEchidna 06:36, 5 September 2008 (UTC)
It was a problem with the program I use to edit the images xD, not the Archives... anyways... I read your page and I found out that you have problems with your DNA Psycho xD and I have a friend that event Pokémon away. I can get a Deoxys (a speed one) for you if you like =) hfc2X 17:33, 5 September 2008 (UTC)
Nah, it's just that Deoxys's level-up moveset SUCKS. I have the event one. TTEchidna 19:04, 5 September 2008 (UTC)

Why is the May (game) article's talk page protected?

?????? Yami 00:21, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

So I could respond without getting an edit conflict, of course. I do that sometimes, and set it to expire soon after. TTEchidna 00:24, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

Ok a little strange but i see where your coming from, those can be annoying. For the most part all you have to do is press back page and copy past what you were going write and paste it, but your way seems to be a little less hassle i guess. But man is that annoying how long does it take for it to go away? Yami 00:29, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

Not when it happens again and again and again... And just refresh, it's gone already. TTEchidna 00:30, 6 September 2008 (UTC)
Oh I'm sorry. You don't even complain to him about what is more than an abuse of power than what I did but you freak out on me because of wanting to avoid edit conflicts? (I'm sorry TTE, this is nothing against you personally). Seems you're afraid of making him angry but have no problem calling me out. --ケンジガール 00:33, 6 September 2008 (UTC)
The anger of the echidna is something to fear... But it's funny, no one gets that they can go to the edit history to see why a page was protected? I always give a reason when I do it briefly. TTEchidna 00:36, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

Can you make this guy shut up?

You know who I'm talking about. He's still bitching that I'm the uncivil one yet when I mention that it's possible that May could have a different last name than Birch, he replies "Pokémon would not want their characters to be bastards". I feel he's being offensive to anyone who has a different last name from their father. He seems to have respect for you so please do something. He's driving me crazy. --ケンジガール 02:24, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, it's been a few hours...I had left, half way through the argument...when I came back, he was still fussing 'bout it. Are you sure you can't block him?--☆Tavisource 02:27, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

You sure seem to be uncivil to me making post that says "can you make this guy shut up?" offensive to those with different names then their parents? is that your best excuse for getting rid of me. The Pokemon people bend over backwards for their customers and they wouldn't want to offende their customers. Maybe May might not have the same last name as Birch is their parents were divorce or she wasn't his kid but seeing as he lives with them and visa versa i'd say she'd have his last name. You're just being argumentative and uncivil to the new guy. What you with comments like: "Right, keep name calling and bitching. You're not going to get your way. Everyone on Bulbapedia thinks you're wrong. Not just me. You're the uncivil one. --ケンジのガール 02:20, 6 September 2008 (UTC)"

that seems un admin and uncivil like to me

...I'm going to say this once and for all. LET'S SAY WHO THE FLUFF CARES ABOUT MAY/BRENDAN'S DAMNED LAST NAME IN RUBY, SAPPHIRE, AND EMERALD. Nintendo bends over backwards for their fluffing customers, well that's not an excuse to tell them, and us, to bend further. "OH JYNX IS RACIST", "OH KADABRA'S MAKING FUN OF MY LYING ASS", "OH MAY AND DAWN ARE SO SEXIST BECAUSE THEY'RE REPLACING MISTY". The point is, yes, it's highly likely that May and Brendan's last names are Birch when they're your rival, but THERE IS NO REASON TO SAY THAT. Let it be interpreted until you find IN GAME DIALOG that your rival says "HI MY NAME'S MAY BIRCH, HOW'RE YOU?", and even then, it's pointless, because the article is about the game character, which is both.
The infobox doesn't need the information there; the mere fact that Birch is their father is enough to imply it for any fanfic writers who write May as the rival, but outside of that, no one really cares. TTEchidna 02:48, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

Moldy, psychic rider andTakoto

Will you please tell these three to stop harrassing me on my talk page. Yami 04:31, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

They actually seem to be quite civil. They're telling you to do the same thing I was, which is to drop the non-issue. Someone has to shut up here, and honestly, by telling them to get off your talk page and deleting all comments to it... not helping. You aren't supposed to do that. TTEchidna 04:42, 6 September 2008 (UTC)
It actually looks like things are starting to quiet down; Yami Takashi hasn't posted in a little while, and people are starting to get back to work. I don't think it's necessary to protect the talk page.
...although I have to admit, it's pretty bad that I can leave in the middle of an argument, sit through a physics lecture, come back, take a short nap, log on, and find the same argument still going on. --Martonimos((Argh|Blargh)) 04:53, 6 September 2008 (UTC)
Yeah that's... pretty bad. TTEchidna 04:54, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

1 person is enough getting 3 people to gang up on someone isn't really all that civil. Everytime it cooled down someone put their two cents into it. No one said a word about Kenji-girl calling me a asshole. And what about Moldy Orange's trollish comment that if i don't want the mess to continue don't repy to this post. I removed that because that comment was trollish and not somethign a admin should say. then takoto comes along with psychic rider and they get in on it. Yami 05:22, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

We were not ganging up on you, your're just being a little brat. I'm the person on here who always likes to get involved and step in so yeah, but i can't stand people who are like you so thats my reason for "getting in on it". You're a spoiled brat, who thinks they can do anything when really they can't. Grow up. ~~Takoto タコト| サソデイ = 愛 05:25, 6 September 2008 (UTC)
I must say that I agree with this statement. You weren't listening to KG when she gave her reason, you didn't listen to me, you didn't listen to anyone else! You're freaking lucky you aren't blocked for being like that! We're not the ones attacking you, you just take everything as an attack against you. TTEchidna 05:28, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

o saying i'm a brat is a personal attack and against the rules just lik KG protectign the May article where she was involved with the dispute there and it wasn't really a dispute. Also calling people assholed and telling them to shut up is also uncivil and you admins need to get some ethical training and review your own policies. Yami 05:35, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

Actually, calling you a "brat" isn't a personal attack, for instance, my best friend sometimes calls me "Brat" as nickname. So you don't know if i mean it in a mean way, or in a jokey way do you? Also, if i was your, i'd listen to TTEchidna |; He's, in my opinion, one of the best admins here so yeah :\ I might go to bed soon, i's almost 7AM and i'm bored of this. ~~Takoto タコト| サソデイ = 愛 05:40, 6 September 2008 (UTC)
What are you, a Scientologist? TTEchidna 05:40, 6 September 2008 (UTC)
Are you talking to me or her/him? ~~Takoto タコト| サソデイ = 愛 05:45, 6 September 2008 (UTC)
Him. The ethics thing. Only they mention that in arguments... Of course it's mostly about putting ethics in on someone... Don't get me started there. TTEchidna 05:48, 6 September 2008 (UTC)
There's an ethics class at my school...My friend's taken it. I took sociology instead. ~~Takoto タコト| サソデイ = 愛 05:51, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

Enough is enough - let us have a break from this argument for a while and come back to it later if someone still thinks it matters. And if anyone breaks the moratorium, the penalty is a (temporary) block. - 振霖T 05:52, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

Yami Takashi just doesn't know when to be quiet...I gave up on him hours ago...--☆Tavisource 05:54, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

1: I'm catholic lutheran not Cult link Scientology, and if you knew a thing about ethics you would know that the rules of ethics is what keeps us from doing what we want with what power we have.

2: Calling a person a brat is a personal attack and is not something Admins should be calling editors.

3: Travis you need shut up because you didn't even have a place in the argument. You only got involved so you could pick on someone without getting in trouble because of you being friends with these admins. Yami 22:20, 7 September 2008 (UTC)

TAVIS (not Travis) is right, and trust me, u cannot revert an admin, let alone four--KukiTalk 22:30, 7 September 2008 (UTC)

To be more precise, you can, but you shouldn't. Just like how you can pull over a cop for speeding, but you shouldn't. -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 22:54, 7 September 2008 (UTC)
Oh just shut up, Yami. You don't wanna piss Zhen off, too. TTEchidna 23:14, 7 September 2008 (UTC)
Dont mean to sound like Yoda, but your all being Babies.IF you dont like what he is saying, ignore it.If you have laready told him once and he chose not to listen, then too bad for him, you dotn have to explain yourself to him over and over agan.Responding to it jsut egged him on.Take it from someone who has tried pulling simialr stunts--DCM((TalkContributions))
True I guess. TTEchidna 01:35, 9 September 2008 (UTC)

That was hilarious on Yami's page! Haha, it links to asshole! oh, good times. *highfives* This has really just turned into a joke. And Im very ok with that. ^__^ --Mooites Talk to me, baby! 04:11, 9 September 2008 (UTC)

Do you know...

I know we aren't allowed to delete things off of our talk page, but what if it has nothing to do with Pokemon or Bulbapdia and was completely unnecessary? Could I delete those?--☆Tavisource 02:35, 7 September 2008 (UTC)

That... eh, it's a gray area. But if it's something really dumb and unrelated, yes, yes you can. TTEchidna 02:40, 7 September 2008 (UTC)
And can I jus tgo delete forum like stuff rom Talk pages?--DCM((TalkContributions))
Well, it's not REALLy dumb, but things about the outside world that just does not fit into Bulbapdia; it's more like something that would be in IM's and e-mails...and SOME on forums.-☆Tavisource 02:44, 7 September 2008 (UTC)
Forum stuff... eh, mostly try to keep that for the recently-added stuff. TTEchidna 06:51, 7 September 2008 (UTC)
You can always archive stuff you don't want on your talk page as well. You don't have to worry about getting in trouble for deleting stuff, and you get to keep your talk page cleaner. -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 22:13, 7 September 2008 (UTC)

Movie Question

Should they have the "In Other Languages" Section caused I asked Shiningpikablu252 and he said to ask the other admins--☆Coolピカチュウ! 02:47, 7 September 2008 (UTC)

As long as it's "In other languages". Title case = BAD. "Other" and "languages" are not special words. TTEchidna 03:18, 7 September 2008 (UTC)
I know and okay I'll add it.--☆Coolピカチュウ! 03:20, 7 September 2008 (UTC)

Mini problem for a mini sprite

There is a problem on the List of Pokemon by national dex page. Instead of Cherrim's MS sprite, it display's its regular (battle) sprite....You're the one who uploaded the sprite, and I see no problem, so I have no idea what went wrong. Or maybe it was just my computer that is broken?--☆Tavisource 00:19, 8 September 2008 (UTC)


According to DP096, Gardenia reappears. If this is true, perhaps it would be a wise descision to protect James's Cacnea from rabid Cacnea fans? I'm Missingno. Master, and I approve this message. 21:14, 8 September 2008 (UTC)

Again?! Well, I don't see why not... TTEchidna 22:13, 8 September 2008 (UTC)

Abuse and agaisnt the rules

That is an abuse of power changign my tlak page and protecting it that is also vandalism. Yami 04:12, 9 September 2008 (UTC)

258 Talk to the Mudkip, 'cuz the echidna don't wanna hear it anymore. TTEchidna 04:13, 9 September 2008 (UTC)
Who are you going to have block him, you? HA! The admins here are all with him, and think it is hilarious! Guess what kid, YOU LOSE! MoldyOrange 04:14, 9 September 2008 (UTC)
Good DAY sir! TTEchidna 04:16, 9 September 2008 (UTC)
No soup for you, NEXT! MoldyOrange 04:18, 9 September 2008 (UTC)
Sorry, to interfere but LOL!--☆Coolピカチュウ! 04:18, 9 September 2008 (UTC)
