==History==
 
I've been a part of the online Pokémon fandom since 2007, when I joined the Bulbasaur's Mysterious Garden forums; however, I was a Pokémon fan long before that. It wasn't until late 2009 when I joined Bulbapedia, at which point I started by editing parts of {{bp|Project GlitchDex}}. The first article I edited was [[list of glitch moves]], because I saw that there were glitch Pokémon missing from the learnlists that were listed to learn those glitch moves on their own pages. I then ended up going through all the glitch Pokémon articles and updating them into the newest style. I eventually began to edit other articles outside of that region, and now I'm an all-round editor (although I focus on the Pokémon games). I ended up splitting the minor glitches section of [[glitch]] into its own article, [[list of minor glitches]], because it was getting edited so much and getting quite long. Since then, that list grew to such a proportion that I split it into lists of glitches by generation. Now I lead Project GlitchDex, and know of a lot of glitches that need to be documented here that aren't that I keep meaning to get around to. I do a lot of different things around the wiki though.

I was promoted to temporary Junior Admin during the Japanese release of Pokémon Black and White in 2011 to help with updating pages during the lockdown. After the lock was lifted, my powers became permanent, and I became a true Junior Administrator. In early January 2011, I found that I was trusted on the Archives as well, and had been given Junior Administrator rights. In March 2011, I was promoted to Admin on Bulbapedia, then on the Archives too shortly after. Less than a week after my Archives promotion, I was given as staff position on Bulbanews during the staff restructure—Writer. In early May 2011, I was appointed Project GlitchDex Leader (after applying for it). In September 2011, I was promoted to a Senior Adminstrator on the Archives. In November 2011, I was promoted to a Senior Writer on Bulbanews. In December 2011, I was promoted to a Senior Administrator on Bulbapedia, making me a Bulbawiki Senior Citizen, a self-coined term, and apparently shared with {{u|Bikini Miltank}}. In April 2012, I was promoted to member of the {{n|Bulbanews:Board of editors|Bulbanews board of editors}}, which also resulted in me getting moderator powers in the [http://bmgf.bulbagarden.net/f280/ Bulbanews forum] on the forums. In June 2012, I was promoted to member of the [[a:Archives:Advisory Council|Archives Advisory Council]]. In August 2012, I was promoted to a Bureaucrat on Bulbapedia, so now I have to learn how to spell it. In August 2014, I was promoted to Deputy Editor-in-Chief of Bulbanews and BulbaNewsNOW Editor.

Also, I occasionally participate in [[Nintendo Independent Wiki Alliance|NIWA]]. I occasionally visit the dead forums, and have an account at every member site (as well as some prospective members such as [http://gameandwatch.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Main_Page Game & Watch Wiki]). I am even an administrator on [[Zelda Wiki]]. Also, those interwiki redirects for SSB characters, like [[Pit]] and [[Peach]], are my doing. I encourage all editors to link to NIWA members over Wikipedia where applicable. I am Bulbapedia's NIWA representative, so if you have anything related to NIWA you want done, let me know.
 
 
I'm SnorlaxMonster on [https://www.youtube.com/SnorlaxMonster YouTube], [https://twitter.com/SnorlaxMonster Twitter]... in fact, I'm SnorlaxMonster pretty much everywhere, so you should recognize me easily. I also use ShapelessMonstrosity sometimes (typically on non-Pokémon sites, and I'm far more active on YouTube as [https://www.youtube.com/user/ShapelessMonstrosity ShapelessMonstrosity]).
 
 
If you want to talk to me casually (non-wiki stuff) or in private you can [http://bmgf.bulbagarden.net/member.php?u=12490 send me a PM on the forums], or [[Special:EmailUser/SnorlaxMonster|send me an email]]. If you think I have done something wrong, I appreciate civil constructive criticism. I would rather have friends than enemies, but I also like a good friendly debate. I try to always assume good faith, perhaps a little too often.
 
 
==Pet peeves==
 
*I hate ampersands (&). I think they look ugly and avoid using them outside of titles that already have them.
 
*I cannot stand {{wp|Acronym and initialism|acronym and initialisms}} written with periods between the letters but not after the final letter. I don't know where people get the idea that this is correct, but this is my absolute biggest pet peeve. If you don't know how to use the periods, don't use them at all—they are not compulsory.

All {{pkmn2|wild}} [[Shiny Pokémon]] I encountered prior to Gen VI (obviously discounting [[red Gyarados]]) have been in the [[Safari Zone]] (since there's no Safari Zone in Gen VI). Not only that, but the only Safari Zone that I haven't encountered a Shiny in is the [[Great Marsh]], which is the only one not named "Safari Zone".

* [[Friend Safari]] — {{p|Ditto}} (caught)
 
* {{rt|5|Kalos}} — {{p|Doduo}} (caught)
 
* {{kal|Victory Road}} — {{p|Gurdurr}} (caught)
 
Also, I encountered that Exeggcute with '''1 [[Safari Ball]] left'''. I threw it, but it escaped and I was kicked out.<br>Also, I have a Shiny Gyarados clone from my friend who caught it as a {{p|Magikarp}} in Sapphire. That is why I was hoping that the guaranteed red Gyarados would have some kind of difference to other Shiny ones, but it didn't.
 
 
Furthermore, I now have a Shiny Red-Striped {{p|Basculin}} in Y, because a friend of mine declared it too ugly and would have otherwise released it.

History

I've been a part of the online Pokémon fandom since 2007, when I joined the Bulbasaur's Mysterious Garden forums; however, I was a Pokémon fan long before that. It wasn't until late 2009 when I joined Bulbapedia, at which point I started by editing parts of Project GlitchDex. The first article I edited was list of glitch moves, because I saw that there were glitch Pokémon missing from the learnlists that were listed to learn those glitch moves on their own pages. I then ended up going through all the glitch Pokémon articles and updating them into the newest style. I eventually began to edit other articles outside of that region, and now I'm an all-round editor (although I focus on the Pokémon games). I ended up splitting the minor glitches section of glitch into its own article, list of minor glitches, because it was getting edited so much and getting quite long. Since then, that list grew to such a proportion that I split it into lists of glitches by generation. Now I lead Project GlitchDex, and know of a lot of glitches that need to be documented here that aren't that I keep meaning to get around to. I do a lot of different things around the wiki though.

I was promoted to temporary Junior Admin during the Japanese release of Pokémon Black and White in 2011 to help with updating pages during the lockdown. After the lock was lifted, my powers became permanent, and I became a true Junior Administrator. In early January 2011, I found that I was trusted on the Archives as well, and had been given Junior Administrator rights. In March 2011, I was promoted to Admin on Bulbapedia, then on the Archives too shortly after. Less than a week after my Archives promotion, I was given as staff position on Bulbanews during the staff restructure—Writer. In early May 2011, I was appointed Project GlitchDex Leader (after applying for it). In September 2011, I was promoted to a Senior Adminstrator on the Archives. In November 2011, I was promoted to a Senior Writer on Bulbanews. In December 2011, I was promoted to a Senior Administrator on Bulbapedia, making me a Bulbawiki Senior Citizen, a self-coined term, and apparently shared with Bikini Miltank. In April 2012, I was promoted to member of the Bulbanews board of editors, which also resulted in me getting moderator powers in the Bulbanews forum on the forums. In June 2012, I was promoted to member of the Archives Advisory Council. In August 2012, I was promoted to a Bureaucrat on Bulbapedia, so now I have to learn how to spell it. In August 2014, I was promoted to Deputy Editor-in-Chief of Bulbanews and BulbaNewsNOW Editor.

Useful tools for wiki editing

  • AutoWikiBrowser - excellent external semi-automated editor, great for mass edits
  • Wayback Machine - one of the most invaluable wiki editing tools, it allows you to access old versions of webpages or sites that aren't even online anymore
  • Archive.is - on-demand archives, for pages you expect to go down that Wayback Machine hasn't captured
  • Text Mechanic - a bunch of text manipulation tools that are great for edits involving replacing text or templates
  • Diff checker - compares two pieces of text without requiring you to save an edit
  • Down for everyone or just me? - checks if websites are down (use in combination with Wayback Machine)
  • ISBN converter - for converting between ISBN-10 and ISBN-13 (adds "978-" to the start of ISBN-10); also checks if ISBN has a valid checksum and inserts hyphens (use in combination with Special:BookSources)

Image tools

  • PNG optimizer - if an image's filesize is too big to be uploaded to the Archives
  • PNG lossy compression - if an image's filesize is too big to be uploaded to the Archives (use only if the optimizer does not make it small enough)
