User talk:The dark lord trombonator/Archive1

From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Jump to: navigation, search


Welcome to Bulbapedia, The dark lord trombonator!

As a new user, you may wish to learn a few things that will be useful in your editing:

  • For a basic overview of wiki code, see this page.
  • The manual of style is very important. Make sure to read it. It outlines all official policies of Bulbapedia.
  • The word Pokémon is spelled with a capital P and an accented é. The P, of course, is accessed easily by holding Shift and pressing the P key, while the é can be accessed using Alt + 130 or Alt + 0233 on a Windows computer, and Option + e, then e again on a Mac. Otherwise, you can click it in the character palette below the editbox.
  • The word Poké Ball is spelled as two words. The "Poké" part is identical to the four beginning letters in "Pokémon"; "Ball" is spelled with a captial B (which is, again, accessed by holding Shift and pressing the B key). The spelling "Pokéball" arises frequently, but is incorrect.
  • The word "you" and all forms of it should not be used on encyclopedic pages unless it is a quote from Pokémon media. Bulbapedia is an encyclopedia, not a walkthrough.
  • On talk pages, please sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).
  • The use of link templates is official policy. For an explanation on their use, see the page on shortlinks.
  • If you happen to spot a vandal in the recent changes that has not been dealt with, please see this page for how to deal with it.
  • A list of pages that are linked to, but have not been created, can be found at this page. A list of short articles that may require more information can be found here, while a list of articles that need improvement can be found here.
  • For a future capture, release, trade, or evolution of a Pokémon belonging to a main character of the anime, please do not create or move the page to reflect your suspicions, even if they are shared by many others. Policy here is to wait until the episode in which the event happens takes place is aired, unless there is substantial evidence for the suspicion (such as Brock's Happiny being held in his arms).
  • If you want to make a page about a character you made up, please create it at User:The dark lord trombonator/Archive1/(name), not merely (name). Bulbapedia's main namespace is reserved for actual, official Pokémon, items, characters, and locations. Also, please try to make sure that subpages are not categorized by templates used within.
  • A list of the admins that you can contact in case of a problem, can be found here.

Thank you, and have a good time editing here! Agggron


you see, we use talk pages for talking, so, give me one good reason why i shouldnt take a pile of garbage up there ^^^ and move it onto your main page, thusly, de-redding your name. -- MAGNEDETH 01:11, 14 November 2008 (UTC)

I see that, and above this post is it not clear that I am talking to you? As the general courtesy around Bulbapedia is to lay off of other peoples' user pages, I am confident that you will honor this and leave my redlinked name alone. It is my personal preference that my name stays red, so please don't let it bother you. It may interest you to know that while not editing in my own userspace, I will keep my usertalk and user-subpage edits to a minimum also, while still contributing to the encyclopedia as a whole. But thank you for your concern anyway. -- THE TROM 01:17, 14 November 2008 (UTC)
keeping user edits down is fine, but, we dont allow non-sense like that on talk pages, and as an admin, you know, a guy made to enforce the rules, its my obligation to call shenanigans and move that mess to your main page. OR, you can move it yourself to a sub-page. but rules are, talk pages are for talking, not giant links or whatever that dont have any use on a talk page. also, i am keeping the conversation in one place, right here. -- MAGNEDETH 01:22, 14 November 2008 (UTC)
You need to link your userpage in your signature too, please. Porygon-Z 01:32, 14 November 2008 (UTC)
My talk page is linked instead because my user page does not have any content in it. If people wish to contact me by clicking on the signature, they will be taken to the correct place. -- THE TROM 01:34, 14 November 2008 (UTC)
It's a rule. Porygon-Z 01:35, 14 November 2008 (UTC)
That seems like a silly rule then. I'd like to suggest we propose rewording it to: "Make sure that your signature at least links either to your own user page or to your own user talk page (a link to your user talk page makes it simpler for other users to contact you, although it isn't required). Your signature may contain other links as well, but exercise common sense when adding links." If I was anyone but me, clicking on a redlink, and then having to click again to another page to talk to Bulbapedian editor The Trom would be a hassle. -- THE TROM 01:47, 14 November 2008 (UTC)
Or you could use common sense. Link the to your nonexistant user page, Trom to your talk page. It has too link to your userpage in some way--DCM((Shut the **** upSpy on My Edits))
How's this then? -- THE TROM 01:52, 14 November 2008 (UTC)
No, I'm not... needs colours... -- THE TROM 01:53, 14 November 2008 (UTC)
There should be a link of colors here:
If not just lift them from others signatures--DCM((Shut the **** upSpy on My Edits)) the **** upSpy on My Edits)) 01:55, 14 November 2008 (UTC)
I've put a font colour tag in, so why isn't it working? -- THE TROM 01:59, 14 November 2008 (UTC)
What color do you want it to be?--DCM((Shut the **** upSpy on My Edits))
Try this-THE TROM --RexRacer -talk 02:04, 14 November 2008 (UTC)
Sorted. Thanks for the input, guys, now go check out my proposed BP:AGF. THE TROM 02:09, 14 November 2008 (UTC)


i know for a fact there's far better things to do than go around removing trivia, so, while i know it strikes a nerve with you for whatever reason, just stop unless its really that unnecessary. granted, that could be the problem, you see something as useless when it actually qualifies as interesting. in the end, might as well just leave it alone. -- MAGNEDETH 02:29, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

Looking for something to do? Work on the Special manga. We need a ton of articles created over there, and you can read it for free on -talk 04:35, 25 November 2008 (UTC)
Thanks, but I have no interest in reading the manga. I'm hoping to work on game-related articles, like Puddles. — THE TROM — 04:36, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

Uh, dude?

Why don't you have a userpage? It confuses me. --SharKing ((Talk to the King!)) 20:01, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

Plenty of people don't have userpages. BTW, good work, Trom. --ニョロトノ666 23:08, 25 November 2008 (UTC)


not all of us are American. in fact, the topic regarding what version of English to use is a hot topic, but, given the Pokemon games are dubbed into American English, that's what we do. -- MAGNEDETH 00:25, 26 November 2008 (UTC)

I'm aware of that. If you check any of my edits, every mainspace edit is done in American English, while my talkspace edits tend to vary as I forget. In the instance that you are commenting on, I had completely forgotten about your use of "period" for "full stop". — THE TROM — 00:27, 26 November 2008 (UTC)
its ok, im not yelling at you, merely commenting on it. -- MAGNEDETH 00:39, 26 November 2008 (UTC)
Since you are the resident nice guy, would you mind checking this out and giving feedback?--RexRacer -talk 03:07, 27 November 2008 (UTC)

(resetting indent)Yay! You used my template!--RexRacer -talk 04:49, 28 November 2008 (UTC)

Speaking of that, I'm pretty much the guy who revived the topic and fought for a language standard. Try to always use American English, as, like 'Deth said, that's how the games are dubbed. "favorite," not "favourite." --ニョロトノ666 20:41, 27 November 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, I know. and -ize not -ise, no matter how silly it makes it look =p Its ok though coz Firefox has a build in spellchecker that reads American only. The problem here was that the word period here means practically everything but full stop. It's all sorted now though, thanks guys, no need to keep checking up on me. :D — THE TROM — 20:44, 27 November 2008 (UTC)


You are fixing Chocolate's stubborness and resistance to the MOS. Thanks a lot!--RexRacer -talk 21:05, 27 November 2008 (UTC)

RexRacer, you don't like me?! Why?! Chocolate((Talk to Me|Look at My Contributions)) 23:59, 27 November 2008 (UTC)
Haven't a clue. Ask him, not me. This page belongs to the Trom. — THE TROM — 00:00, 28 November 2008 (UTC)
I have nothing against you, you just went against the MOS and did your own thing after being asked not to.--RexRacer -talk 00:01, 28 November 2008 (UTC)


i see youre going and scanning the templates, when youre done, tell me so i can protect them as theyre all already supposed to be protected. -- MAGNEDETH 22:44, 28 November 2008 (UTC)

I'll do some now, but can you wait until tomorrow or tonight? I have an exam today :S — THE TROM — 22:47, 28 November 2008 (UTC)
yea thats fine, just make a list of templates that are used and not protected and put it on my talk page. someone, me or otherwise, will take care of it, thanks. -- MAGNEDETH 22:52, 28 November 2008 (UTC)


Do you have an AIM? --ニョロトノ666 04:35, 29 November 2008 (UTC)

Nope, but feel free to email me any off-wiki stuff here. — THE TROM — 04:59, 29 November 2008 (UTC)
OK, I've succumbed to your villainous ways, Bulbapedia. Anyone wishing to stalk, criticise, encourage, harass or praise me (or my editing) can now add me on AIM (screen name murrayjmiles). That doesn't mean I'm going sit around there all day so let me know to go online beforehand. — THE TROM — 00:56, 6 December 2008 (UTC)

Its not vandalism, as he has admitted to it. Its true, and he has falsely added that award to his page. You are also not allowed to remove stuff, but i can put it in a collapsible box thats tiny if you wishDCM((曲奇饼妖怪Spy on My Edits))

I'm pretty sure that the more commonly used term for "NPC" is non-primary character, often used in fiction as people that are described for a paragraph or two and killed off right after. Anyway..--RexRacer -talk 05:14, 6 December 2008 (UTC)

Replied on your talk page. — THE TROM — 05:20, 6 December 2008 (UTC)
Wow... huh. Thats odd. Sorry for the disturbance. I always knew it as a non-primary character. But I'm a part of a big writing community, so thats probably why. --RexRacer -talk 05:23, 6 December 2008 (UTC)
NPC=Non player Character. For Example, Rowan is an NPC, and hes important.DCM((曲奇饼妖怪Spy on My Edits))

Burmy trivia

I just thought that it would be interesting to have another side of that argument since, as one can see by my addition, Trash Cloak Burmy isn't actually that hard to get. Why do we have that other piece of Trivia anyways.--MisterE13 03:41, 17 December 2008 (UTC)

Great, hadn't noticed you removed the other one. It had been bugging me for days.--MisterE13 03:48, 17 December 2008 (UTC)

One-hit knockout move

Why should we have "I" listed three times and "Normal" listed twice? Rowspans are used to negate repeating stuff. Chocolate (Merry Christmas!) 20:41 12/20/2008
