e-Reader Berries

Put the infobox before the page text, all right? TTEchidna 03:10, 15 July 2007 (UTC)

Shuco Berry

I write to apologise on behalf of the Shuca Berry article as i changed the bitterness to "Yes", but then after a solid 10 minutes of debating with myself, i realised that it was, in fact, not bitter.

Spr 3e 172.gifPichuLover

P.S I have changed it back

Venustoise

The main reason I deleted the Venustoise "article" was that it was this picture and nothing else. If an actual article was created, then the situation would be different.

However, if you are going to create one, bear in mind TTEchidna's comment on Talk:EP020. How much can we actually say about it? --FabuVinny T-C-S 20:09, 13 January 2008 (UTC)

Signature

You're missing a </span> somewhere in your signature. The lack of that tag is causing all text after an occurence of your signature to appear in the wrong colors. --Shiningpikablu252 22:02, 19 January 2008 (UTC)

Level-up tables

when expanding a table, be sure to correctly modify multiple moves in one catigory. the best example is in the start catigory.

Level Generation IV Type Cat.
Start Disable Normal Status
Night Shade Ghost Special
11 Quick Attack Normal Physical

when you edit this, you can see the "rowspan" that allows the table to recognize the merge. also, when you modified Darkrai's table (the one im using as en example) you somhow deleted some of the code, causing a broken table. please check your work with the preview button before submitting it. MAGNEDETH 00:50, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

The multi-move Start thing was the only problem I had, I thought what I did was the best way to lay it out. Couldn't think of a way to lay a table for it. Regardless I always preview my edits before submitting. I didn't notice any broken tables though. ~ToastypkTrozeiani157.gif - Loom.Trozeiani286.gif 02:57, 13 February 2008 (UTC)
oh, well, it was pretty bad. oh well. just check that ^^^^ out if you have a prob, thats the dealy. MAGNEDETH 03:47, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

Signature2

while i check into the "Solid Rock" thing, id like to say that images in signatures are now against the new signature policy. -- MAGNEDETH 02:01, 17 April 2008 (UTC)

Now that's no help. The Policy is at the top--Pokemaniac102 02:03, 17 April 2008 (UTC)

Signature

I see you're still depending on a now-deleted signature template for a signature. As per the signature policy, signature templates are forbidden. You're going to have to hard-wire a custom signature into your preferences. Look over the policy, it tells you how to do it. --Shiningpikablu252 03:01, 13 May 2008 (UTC)

I tried to find my sig page a while back but looking at User:Toastypk/Sig it seemed to have disappeared. I knew it had images in it and I tried to get rid of them but it just vanished for me. Toastypk 03:14, 13 May 2008 (UTC)

Ok goodie, it's fixed!

here, try this:

~Toastypk - Loom.

or this

~Toastypk

or somthing to that effect. -- MAGNEDETH 03:19, 13 May 2008 (UTC)

Deoxys's formes

Check the official American Pokédex at Pokémon.com. Deoxys didn't have "formes" before, but is sure as hell does now. --Martonimos((Talk)) 03:07, 21 May 2008 (UTC)

Moving pages

Please do not copy and paste article text to move pages. - 振霖T 11:14, 17 July 2008 (UTC)

I'm getting annoyed at this

Make a link to your usepage and your usertalk page in your signature, I don't want to keep working my way around just to get to your pages! MoldyOrange 16:57, 17 July 2008 (UTC)

Testing now... ~Toastypk - Loom. 17:11, 17 July 2008 (UTC)

Ok, I don't know why that Loom part doesn't link to my talk page. But at least it's better than it was before.

It won't link to your talk page if it is on your talk page. If you test it on another talk page, it should work. ~$aturn¥oshi THE VOICES 17:22, 17 July 2008 (UTC)
Heh oops, derp moment for me ~Toastypk - Loom. 17:35, 17 July 2008 (UTC)
Happens to the best of us. Also, congratulations on adminship. ~$aturn¥oshi THE VOICES 00:17, 18 July 2008 (UTC)
Congrats, dude!Emperor's Cookies 00:19, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

Rollbacking

Just to answer your rollback question, if nobody else did already. "Rollback" will revert the article, just like the normal "Revert" option. The difference is, it'll revert all the edits by the last contributor, which is useful if a single vandal edits a page multiple times.

When a vandal moves a page, however, revert or rollback won't do anything. It's a new page. The only fix is to use the move feature to move the page back to it's original location. the Move log will also have a "revert" option in there next to each move. You'll probably need to go and manually delete all the redirect pages that are left-over after the move, too. Generally, vandals don't abuse the move feature when they could be simply vandalizing pages, so luckily the situation doesn't pop up much. It's a pain in the ass when they do though. (last time I had to deal with a vandal like that, it took me over an hour to ban him and undo all his work.) -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 20:08, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

Mystery Dungeon 2 Player

A usertag you have been using, {{User Mystery Dungeon 2}}, has been moved to a new location due to a split in the usertag between the two versions. Your tag has been switched to that template's new location, {{User Mystery Dungeon Explorers of Time}}. If you only play Explorers of Darkness, you can reflect it by changing the tag to {{User Mystery Dungeon Explorers of Darkness}}. --Shiningpikablu252 01:50, 7 September 2008 (UTC)

You do realize...

you opened a can of HELL!!!! MoldyOrange 02:02, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

Uhoh... maybe that wasn't what I was going for. I just thought that like, two or three Pokemon share the same moves in the card game because there are so many different moves over the course of the card series. I just thought there was something about the layout at the time that needed refining, and I still do, but maybe that's not the right way to go. ~Toastypk - Loom. 02:11, 3 October 2008 (UTC)
I didn't say don't try it, I already made it to flare, but I was going to stop after that and pick it up another day. MoldyOrange 02:16, 3 October 2008 (UTC)
Oh, from the way you were saying it, I was assuming you meant that the list of users for each move was going to be prohibitably MASSIVE. Oh well, that's why we have wiki communities, to find the best solutions! ~Toastypk - Loom. 02:19, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

Igglybuff

Just uploade it onto the archives and add it to the sprite table...I'll fix it if it needs improving.--Tavisource 04:50, 7 October 2008 (UTC)

Looks good! Remember to add your name to the members list and also remember to change the sprites on Brittany's page...Well, done!--Tavisource 05:04, 7 October 2008 (UTC)
I replied to your comment on my talk page if you haven't seen it already. Anyways, I'll be going to bed now, I'll see how you did on Igglybuff tomorrow. Great Job!--Tavisource 05:34, 7 October 2008 (UTC)

Thank you...

...For informing me of the table. But try sorting it. Θρtιmαtum♏Talk|Links

Contest Tag

A usertag you have been using, {{User Five Masters Ribbons}}, has been moved to a new location due to a split in the usertag between the Contests of Generation III and Super Contests of Generation IV. Your tag has been switched to that template's new location, {{User Contest Master}}. If you have only mastered the Super Contests, please change the tag to {{User Super Contest Master}}. If you hav emastered both, go ahead and add both. --tc26 14:52, 24 October 2008 (UTC)

Please

Slow down on editing the User: namespace. There are only three userspace edits allowed per day, and you have gone over the limit. Editing your userpage too much will lead to it being locked again. Instead of making multiple small edits, why not instead use the preview button (Alt + Shift + P) to check your edits before saving the page? Thank you. --The Dark Fiddler - Smarter than the average bear! 19:08, 12 December 2008 (UTC)

Oooh I didn't know that... ok. I was just in a template mood. ~Toastypk - Loom. 19:31, 12 December 2008 (UTC)

Any articles need help?

Everything seems to be in tip-top shape. Do you know of any that need quite a bit of help? Pokemon.princesses 16:52, 23 December 2008 (UTC)

Hi Mister i think you should put the name of Heatran also in the article of pokemon movie 12. I am not an administrator that's why i can't edit it. - unsigned comment from Adyniz (talkcontribs)

Administrator Status

In order to keep our Administrator list currently up-to-date, this is a generic "are you there" message.

Please, either edit the List of administrators to reflect your status (Active, Hiatus, Inactive), or reply here when you get the chance.

If there is no response after two weeks from today, you will simply be assumed as "Inactive" and marked as such. -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 16:01, 4 February 2009 (UTC)

I'm still here. I check Bulbapedia every day for news and things. But usually I don't see much in dire need of editing. If I see something that needs fixing, I'll fix it, but lately around the articles I focus on, I don't happen to see much. If there's breaking Pokemon news I make it a point to try to edit it into here, but most of the time the others have gotten to it already. I do plan on continuing that Moves not in the Pokémon games article. I just need to set aside some time to do so. ~Toastypk - Loom. 04:21, 5 February 2009 (UTC)
That's more then good enough for "active" status. Just need to know that you check messages enough to make contacting you worthwhile. -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 15:09, 5 February 2009 (UTC)

Revocation of Powers

Toastypk -

As you may have noticed, your administrative powers have been revoked. There was recently an executive decision made among several of Bulbapedia's top powers to purge the powers of inactive or semi-inactive administrators without announced hiatuses. You fall into the category of being either inactive or semi-inactive, and thus your powers have been revoked.

Several factors went into our reasoning. Mainly, though, we believe that there is only a certain amount of authority the administrative body as a whole can hold. Therefore, the more administrators we have, the more times that power has to be divided up. And the more times it's divided, the less authority each individual administrator can hold. Think of it as having a cake at a party. The more people that want a slice of cake, the smaller each cake slice is. We believe that the "cake pieces" should be bigger for active administrators and that inactive users shouldn't get any of the cake, so we decided to take back your piece of the cake, along with those of a host of other users.

So, don't be offended. It's more aimed toward giving the active sysops more power, not giving you less power, although it does have that side effect. As a whole, it will be good for the wiki. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me or any other members of the Editorial Board. Oh, and feel free to come back and start actively editing again! You may just get your powers back. Thanks. --ニョロトノ666 03:23, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

Oh god, no... I really felt like I earned this. I'm definately active here, I check here very very often. But I honestly just don't see much that is in dire need of editing lately. The majority of the things I see that are edited lately in the recent stuff are just tiny minute alterations, things that aren't noticable, or other small bits.
If I do see something that needs attention, of course I edit it in. I do my share, I try to edit things when I can, but most often the people who seem to be here almost 24/7 seem to do it instantaneous, and I can't be on here all the waking day.
Regardless, I move things when it calls, I try to clarify information, I do these things and I was happy to, even in the protected articles. It felt good, I wasn't an abuser, I would always try to be careful to make sure I didn't say or edit the wrong thing. What's to gain from this? (And just when I was told I was active enough earlier...) ~Toastypk - Loom. 03:13, 21 February 2009 (UTC)
First off, who told you you were active enough earlier? Whoever it was, they're... wrong. Additionally, regardless of how much you edit, you barely ever use your administrative powers. You've blocked exactly 1 user, deleted exactly 3 pages, and never protected a page. There's not really a point in giving admin powers to someone who doesn't use them. As for whether or not you deserve them... that's open to debate. Personally, I'm against giving powers to users who revert a large amount of vandalism, since I feel that's something good editors should do regardless of whether or not there's a reward. It also could be because I'm still bitter against not getting powers after the JohnnyRebel attacks... D: Not really. Now, you asked what's to gain from this. It explains our reasoning explicitly in the first message. BTW, just so you don't feel mad at me in particular, this was a general consensus. Thanks. --ニョロトノ666 22:01, 24 February 2009 (UTC)
Bleh... I had been wondering whether or not people would think it was a good idea that it happened because of the vandal night, but I just went with it and did what I could. I mean I did see what was going on during that time and I wanted to stop it, so I tried whatever I could. But regardless, I still try to be a good bulbapedian, but like I said, from what I see most everything seems complete now except for minor details. I guess it just feels good to be in a bit of responsible control, look over locked articles, make sure things are ok, and that I was more than happy to do. I've actually seen pages that I considered protecting from moves or not, but after I tried moving one page and people weren't happy with it ("[[Literal Ghost}}"), I had to give some thought to any future movings to make sure they weren't going to annoy people. Though again, I just don't know if I saw any really big needs to move things or block people, and most of the time when it did happen, others got to it before I did. (sorry, this all just kind of... feels like a slap in the face for my self-esteem, like I'm not good enough despite my history here. And yes like you I'm bitter at some miscellaneous relatively unimportant things as well.) ~Toastypk - Loom. 18:08, 25 February 2009 (UTC)
