How come you put your talk page archives in the User: name space? DCM asked you this before, but you never answered. Chocolate (Chat with Me) 02:49, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

Why aren't you doing everything like me? MaverickNate 02:52, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
What do you mean? I was just asking Geo a question. Chocolate (Chat with Me) 02:53, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
Merely habit, Chocolate. There's really no set place that Archives should always go to, they just need to stay in the correct userspace. And to me, it looks weird to have a talk page with no article, so I simply move them there when I archive.
...Did DCM really ask that? I must have missed it. *digs through his archives* -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 02:56, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
Okay. And yes, DCM did ask that. Here. Chocolate (Chat with Me) 02:58, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
Wow, invisible or something. I just looked through that and didn't see it at all. =P -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 03:03, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

I got a problem adding Sigs...

Hey-o, I was gonna try to add a custom sig, but whenever I put in the HTML code into the Signature section of my Preferences, it keeps saying Invalid raw signature.

I put it in like this, right? : --Dark Boye . I have no idea, I'm just really tired to figure it out right now... Boye 08:32, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

Try using this code instead: [[User:Dark_Boye|<span style="color:red;">Da</span>]][[User talk:Dark_Boye|<span style="color:black;">rk Bo</span>]][[User:Dark_Boye|<span style="color:blue;">ye</span>]], remember to also select the Raw signatures box. - Kogoro | Talk to me - 09:50, 27 January 2009 (UTC)
Ok, Thanks! Uh, is there a specific code for underlining or font size? Dark Boye 03:12, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
You can use <small></small> to make things smaller, and <u></u> will underline. There's also the option to use <font size=3></font> to change font size too (the number there adjusts the size), but do note, that's disallowed for signatures, as making the text any bigger would disrupt line spacing. -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 04:55, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
Oh, ok. Is there a different way to bold the Sig other than the usual? Dark Boye 06:28, 3 March 2009 (UTC)


My user name is "0 Degrees", so this is this signature okay? 0° 00:18, 1 February 2009 (UTC)

Yeh, I'd say that makes sense there. I think it's fine. -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 06:24, 1 February 2009 (UTC)


why u erased that it could be used to create Lucas's back --Manwithnoname 18:27, 2 February 2009 (UTC)

this and this are still up on ImageShack, so I never deleted the images. However, we don't need talk pages for files that don't exist, so those were deleted. -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 05:34, 3 February 2009 (UTC)

Signature Help

CoolPikachu! told me you were the one to go to for help with signatures. I need the very basics. I just want a signature with a few colours, bold or italics and have the start of my name link to my userpage and the end link to my talk page. Explain in simple terms please as I am pretty bad at HTML. Thank you! - unsigned comment from Zephy.Changes (talkcontribs)

Well, first things first, you can sign with four tildes ~~~~. By default, it's a pretty basic link to your userpage; generally, if you're going to customize it, that coding is a good place to start.
In your case, you would have this: Zephy.Changes
If you wanted to, say, customize it a bit, there's a bunch of options...
Mayhaps something like this: Zephy.Changes
[[User:Zephy.Changes|<font color=purple>Zephy</font>]].[[User talk:Zephy.Changes|<font color=darkblue>Changes</font>]]
Dunno what colors or design you'd like, but perhaps that base gives you something to base off of... just note that when you put that into your Preferences, make sure the "Raw Signatures" box is checked. -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 05:25, 3 February 2009 (UTC)


Help me to make a new sig.--Maria♥♪♫δ 05:46, 3 February 2009 (UTC)

Well, what exactly are you trying for in your new one? Any particular color preferences? -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 05:48, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
Pink. Light, deep...anything will do.--Maria♥♪♫δ 05:59, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
I want one as good as yours or that of RyanCross.--Maria♥♪♫δ 06:00, 3 February 2009 (UTC)

I copied the colors from your talk page (no worries, it should still show up just fine on your talk page too). -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 06:18, 3 February 2009 (UTC)

Administrator Status

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

You've been assumed as currently active and are already marked as such, but if you disagree with this, either edit the List of administrators to reflect your status (Active, Hiatus, Inactive, or Generic), or reply here when you get the chance. -- MAGNEDETH 01:46, 5 February 2009 (UTC)

I would do generic, but the generic color scheme is really ugly. -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 22:03, 5 February 2009 (UTC)
problem is, if we spice up the generic colors, would that make it un-generic? -- MAGNEDETH 22:35, 5 February 2009 (UTC)
Yes, thus making the point of having generic colors null and void. So I'll keep myself marked as "active" instead. -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 23:20, 5 February 2009 (UTC)

Could you help me please

I can't quite seem to get this to work:User:MisterE13/Template:Unown. If you need any explanation of what the code is supposed to do, I can give you one. Also, there's already a mainspace page for it so don't bother making one.--MisterE13 22:01, 5 February 2009 (UTC)

Yeh, an explanation would be good. Just a guess, it displays Unown sprites... based on the day/time? -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 22:05, 5 February 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, it's supposed to do the day/time thing (mod 28) and if it's between 0 and 25, it displays the Unown sprites (with 0 being A, 1 being B, 2 being C...). Or, if the original calculation was a 26 or 27, it's supposed to display this Template:Sprite/forme/noappear. The mainspace page is here: Template:Sprite/2/26formes but it's not as davanced as my subpage that I gave you up there.--MisterE13 21:44, 6 February 2009 (UTC)
I think I see the problem then. The #switch: function automatically assumes pipes | and equal-signs = are option dividers; since you have a full table inside the #switch:, it's entirely broken up. You'll need to replace every pipe in the table with the {{!}} template (that just sticks a | in there, but doesn't mess up the code). I'm looking, but I don't know if we have a template for the = symbol... we should probably, but I don't know where it is.
A work-around would be to make that template into two seperate ones, one having the switch, the other having the table. That way, you can transclude the table into the switch, without breaking the switch code. It might be a little unwieldy, though. -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 21:52, 6 February 2009 (UTC)
I got it to be made and replaced everyting on the page (even the stuff outside the switch, I was lazy :P) ). Can you see if anything else was wrong.--MisterE13 02:06, 7 February 2009 (UTC)
Well you do need to keep some of the pipes in there, so the switch works. I'll take a look at it. =P -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 15:28, 7 February 2009 (UTC)
Fixed it, I think. For one, like I mentioned before, you do need some of the | and = to stick around, so the switch works; it's just the extra ones that need to be transcluded.
Secondly, it took a little while to realize, but the switch options were only triggering on 25 and 27, and not on anything in-between; turns out all the extra options you had were actually being counted separately, so if it happened to choose, say, 15, it would use that option exactly. As a blank spot. So I got those working as well.
This is a lot of help if you ever run into issues like that. =D -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 15:48, 7 February 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for your help. Yeah I had read that before. Must not have understood "Fall through" values quite right. Also, I keep purging it but I'm not sure that the ! and ? work. Any insight.--MisterE13 16:43, 7 February 2009 (UTC)
I don't think I see those two sprites in the coding, actually. I just see the 26 letters (0-25), and the "noappear" for the last two. -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 19:46, 7 February 2009 (UTC)
That's what it's supposed to do, if you can see the "noappear" then that's perfect.--MisterE13 22:50, 7 February 2009 (UTC)


Sorry, just had to do it. Besides, the food poisoning incident has been interfering with me this week, so it was at least semi-appropriate. (And I did "poison" instead of "poisoned" because it would have stretched out the table otherwise). --((Marton imos)) 21:08, 6 February 2009 (UTC)

Ah, my screen's wider, it would have fit. =P -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 21:34, 6 February 2009 (UTC)

Even you lifted Candicevolkner's punishment, his page is still protected. Is he still banned for editing his page? Ҝəυzø8 11:39, 24 February 2009 (UTC)
No, I assume that was set to expire sometime around when Candicevolkner got out of Abuse. Good spot; I've unprotected the page. -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 13:35, 24 February 2009 (UTC)
=]] Anyway, why didn't you block NakedTreeHugger? I thought the username was unacceptable... (Naked+Hugger) Ҝəυzø8 13:40, 24 February 2009 (UTC)
"Naked" isn't a bad word on it's own, and neither is "Tree Hugger". The name seems to be PG-13 to me at most, and that's about what we normally aim for. Curse words or a more gratuitous username would have fallen into the "unacceptable" category in my opinion, but I don't think this particular one is that bad. -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 13:00, 25 February 2009 (UTC)
On a different note, Geo, care to go through your visitor messages in the forums?--Sher-e-Bengal- 13:04, 25 February 2009 (UTC)
I thought it was, sorry. Maybe I was just overreacting.. D: *checks dictionary carefully* Ҝəυzø8 13:16, 25 February 2009 (UTC)
Haha. There was a time when you could say those words in public.--Clarky13 13:22, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

Distortion World

Can you unprotect the Distortion World article for a bit, I need to do a couple of things.--Clarky13 13:27, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

I've lowered the protection level so you can edit it. Have fun. -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 20:14, 25 February 2009 (UTC)
lol, thanks. I'll be a couple of minutes.--Clarky13 20:48, 25 February 2009 (UTC)
Done, thanks for that. I needed to add the locations notice, some link templates and make it look a little prettier. --Clarky13 21:07, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

Many Apologizes

Sorry Jioruji Derako. It won't happen again. --Theryguy512 19:49, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

It's not a problem, I'm just making sure that there isn't a next time. You in particular hadn't seen the new policy yet, so it's not a big deal. -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 15:19, 1 March 2009 (UTC)
Okay, thank you. --Theryguy512 16:11, 1 March 2009 (UTC)


You silly goose! You're supposed to ask before making yourself a Project Leader... --ニョロトノ666 00:01, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

I did ask, I asked TTE before I did anything. He told me that I technically do have the authority to make myself the project leader of a project, and seeing as it's not a top-level project, AND I'm the oldest active member still in it, I figured it wouldn't be a problem. -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 15:17, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

Ash's Chimchar

I agree with your opinion on protecting the article, however, I believe that you should higher the protection level. At this moment, any registered user is able to edit it, and it's not that hard for an account to be created. Therefore, I believe that you should upgrade the protection level so only administrators can edit it, just to be safe. --Theryguy512 18:38, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

The semi-protection also limits editing to users who have had their accounts for four days, which generally cuts down on a chunk of gun-jumping edits. But I've got the page on my watchlist, if we start getting more edits to the article, I'll definitely bump up the protection level, no worries. -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 16:35, 2 March 2009 (UTC)
Okey-dokey. Just trying to be safe. --Theryguy512 16:38, 2 March 2009 (UTC)
