Edit warring

If someone undoes your edit, repeatedly remaking that edit in sknown as edit warring. Edit warring is not allowed, and is a blockable offense. Instead of remaking the edit, bring it up on the talk page for discussion. Thanks. Werdnae (talk) 19:48, 4 September 2010 (UTC)

Proof?

At least give proof before undoing my edit on the Abandoned Ship. Han Ji-Wan 00:51, 29 April 2011 (UTC)

Preview Button

Please use the preview button more often. It helps to keep the Recent Changes clean, reduces server stress, and its a rule. It's the button right next to the "save page" button, so check it out. -- MAGNEDETH 03:31, 15 March 2012 (UTC)

Reminder: Use the preview button. If you are editing multiple sections, you should also use the edit tab way up above the title to edit the whole page at once, rather than making a large number of edits because you're editing all twenty six sections individually.

Gen VI Trivia

Firstly, that trivia is notable, even if one of them is blatantly obvious. Secondly, you're attitude is very rude, don't mock the site or other users just because you don't think something is notable. If there are people out their "laughing" at us, so let them. Don't use the views of random trolls on the net as justification of your edits.--ForceFire 14:06, 30 December 2015 (UTC)

It's not just "random 4chan trolls" that think Bulbapedia's policy (or lack of it) on trivia is absurd. It was parodied and laughed at 5 years ago, and it continues to be a problem to this day. I tried to remove this one case of a stupid letter counting 'trivia' more politely, only to get reverted by some junior admin who pretty much argued that all trivia is shit and thus we should keep even the shittiest one's. There's no hope for this site to ever get a proper policy on trivia. Tempest370 (talk) 14:15, 30 December 2015 (UTC)
User:Force Fire/Trivia Policy is something that's been in the works since a while back. It's not official policy, but it's something. Just because someone laughed at the trivia doesn't mean it's not notable. If you think letter counting is "shit", then you'd remove the trivia about Muk and Mew having the shortest names. I bet you that there are plenty of trolls out there laughing at that trivia.--ForceFire 14:26, 30 December 2015 (UTC)
'There's worse stuff' is a terrible argument Tempest370 (talk) 14:44, 30 December 2015 (UTC)
That's not my point. My point was that we have similar trivia on other pages (the aforementioned Muk and Mew trivia).--ForceFire 03:14, 31 December 2015 (UTC)
"We have the same bad stuff in other places" is your point? OK then. Tempest370 (talk) 09:49, 31 December 2015 (UTC)
I'm not saying that they're bad trivia, I'm saying that it's basically the same thing.--ForceFire 09:51, 31 December 2015 (UTC)
