I have a problem

Hello Carmen,

There's a user here on Bulbapedia that's breaking the code of conduct you gave to me on my discussion page. The user is Kenji-Girl, although it's in Japanese lettering. I would appreciate it if you could help out or forward this message to someone on the administration who can. --ShalashaskaADV 02:03, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

I really can't do anything about that; sorry. Kenji-girl is a senior admin, and I'm sure she knows what she's doing. She wasn't breaking the code of conduct; she was simply explaining what you've done wrong and hopes you won't make a mistake like that again. Please understand. --Carmen (Talk) 02:16, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

Trainer classes

The reason Gen I trainers are not included is because, except in a few cases, the trainers are the same as they are in FRLG. Same level, same team. Unless there are differences (or the trainer didn't get carried over into FRLG), they didn't get noted. Luna Tiger * the Arc Toraph 04:05, 25 February 2011 (UTC)

Okay, thanks! --Carmen (Talk | Contributions) 13:57, 25 February 2011 (UTC)


I know you apologized, but please, next time, CHECK. --Han Ji-Wan 04:05, 1 March 2011 (UTC)

I'm sorry for that. I'll make sure I check from now on. --Carmen (Talk | Contributions) 04:15, 1 March 2011 (UTC)

Spoiler links

I had to revert most (not all) of your edit to BW002 because it went against the spoiler links policy in episode articles. I elaborated on that policy in my proposed synopsis guidelines, where it cited a past argument that set the standard. Just take note of it for next time. Thanks! --rockersk08 04:08, 19 March 2011 (UTC)

Just butting in where I'm probably not wanted (as per usual, I guess), but I don't think this is actually as big a deal as one may think. The spoiling will happen whether the link goes to the redirect or not, because if someone clicks on the link then they get a major spoiler. At best, I think this sort of thing should be a "link to whatever is appropriate given the context", but don't go out of your way to change or revert someone - it's not really a huge concern.
Personally speaking, I think Bulbapedia should abolish spoiler warnings anyway. Seriously, this is a wiki full of information. Chances are you've come here because you want to learn something you don't already know. Every element from every canon (games, anime, manga, etc.) could be perceived as a spoiler... Maybe I'm a bit too anti-spoiler, but... —darklordtrom 09:05, 19 March 2011 (UTC)
I didn't know about that policy before, but I'll make sure that I will follow it. --Carmen (Talk | Contributions) 13:29, 19 March 2011 (UTC)
I appreciate that, but Trom also brought up a good point about it. I had been following it based on that past argument, but perhaps it could be reassessed? I'll start a conversation on the policy talk page. Feel free to chime in! --rockersk08 04:38, 21 March 2011 (UTC)


Please, why you reverted the changes I made in the images of the pages Emolga Iris and himself? Both are totally disproportionate to their pages and end up spoiling the look of them.-Hikaru Wazana 22:20, 16 April 2011 (UTC)

Please read this. --Carmen (Talk | Contributions) 23:50, 16 April 2011 (UTC)

Cards and redirects

The cards use the links the way they do for ease of typing out origins. On a further note: The TCG links to redirects more often than other sections, because many times, linking to the actual page makes things incorrect and harder than linking the redirect. If you come across more card pages using Template:Game, just skip them, please. MaverickNate 05:58, 26 April 2011 (UTC)

Ah, sorry about that. I'll leave the card pages alone. --Carmen (Talk | contribs) 13:11, 26 April 2011 (UTC)
No worries. Thank you MaverickNate 14:49, 26 April 2011 (UTC)


If you have a minute, could you please check your email? Thanks. Jellotalk 02:18, 29 April 2011 (UTC)

Underscores in template parameter names

You can't replace them with spaces or they break. --SnorlaxMonster 14:11, 14 May 2011 (UTC)

*Facepalm* I should really think before I act. Sorry. --Carmen (Talk | contribs) 14:13, 14 May 2011 (UTC)


Not that big of a deal actually, but on the top of your userpage it says "she" joined bulbapedia on 10/22/10. Then it switches perspective (not that it matters, but my writing teacher would kill you for that) and at the bottom, it says you joined on 10/23/10. Not that it's my bussiness, but I just couln't help noticing it (OCD). Obviously there is a good reason for it and I'm just too much of a noob to see it, but just had to point that out.

OOPS sorry I just double-posted, my computer really sucks. Blastoiseboy19(Talk) was here at 00:48, 20 May 2011 (UTC)
Also, (stupid me) how do you put the [show] buttons on your usertags? mine just expand my page and it really bugs me. Blastoiseboy19(Talk) was here at 00:51, 20 May 2011 (UTC)


Do not, under any circumstance add information to my talk page that pertains to lecturing me. That is extremly offensive on my part. Please do not do that again PokePrincess 01:18, 20 June 2011 (UTC)--PokePrincess 01:18, 20 June 2011 (UTC)

Well, sometimes lecturing is the only way to teach some people how to do stuff. :--SuperAipom7 (Questions?) 01:22, 20 June 2011 (UTC)

Who are you? What do you have anything to do with this...Let me answer for you, NOTHING!!!!. PokePrincess 01:26, 20 June 2011 (UTC)--PokePrincess 01:26, 20 June 2011 (UTC)

Sorry, I was just trying to help. :--SuperAipom7 (Questions?) 01:28, 20 June 2011 (UTC)

Oh I am sorry too its just I am so frustrtaed. I am struggling with images. I know this sounds weird but I don't know how to. PokePrincess 01:32, 20 June 2011 (UTC)--PokePrincess 01:32, 20 June 2011 (UTC)

What must be done must be done. If you go against the talk page policy, or rather, any policy, you'll get a warning. --Carmen (Talk | contribs) 01:33, 20 June 2011 (UTC)

Before you do that, why do we have to keep the welcoming and you are going to absolutley hate me from saying this but can you help with images. PokePrincess 01:35, 20 June 2011 (UTC)--PokePrincess 01:35, 20 June 2011 (UTC)

We have to keep the welcoming becuase it has some helpful advice you should follow. :--SuperAipom7 (Questions?) 01:36, 20 June 2011 (UTC)
Exactly what kind of help do you need with images? Uploading, inserting them into pages...what? --Carmen (Talk | contribs) 01:40, 20 June

You know how the sprites for pokemon are in those boxes? how do you make thosePokePrincess 05:14, 20 June 2011 (UTC)--PokePrincess 05:14, 20 June 2011 (UTC)

I'll assume you mean something like this. That's done through the use of several templates. I suggest you familiarize yourself with the manual of style and wikicode before getting into templates. --Carmen (Talk | contribs) 20:59, 20 June 2011 (UTC)

Fail attempt

Hey, since you are an admin, is there anyway you can delete my failed attempt at a usertag? It's near the top of the Recent Changes. Thanks! :--SuperAipom7 (Questions?) 00:34, 21 June 2011 (UTC)

Sorry, I'm only a Junior Admin, which means I can't delete pages. I can bring it up with a higher staff member. --Carmen (Talk | contribs) 00:38, 21 June 2011 (UTC)
Thanks. :--SuperAipom7 (Questions?) 00:44, 21 June 2011 (UTC)

I have another question...

Do you know how I can add this to the other userboxes? Or am I allowed to? :--SuperAipom7 (Questions?) 02:24, 22 June 2011 (UTC)

Read this. It should answer your questions. --Carmen (Talk | contribs) 02:28, 22 June 2011 (UTC)
Thanks. Do you think my usertag is any good? :--SuperAipom7 (Questions?) 02:30, 22 June 2011 (UTC)
I don't really have an opinion...sorry. --Carmen (Talk | contribs) 02:34, 22 June 2011 (UTC)
That's fine. Thanks for your help! :--SuperAipom7 (Questions?) 02:35, 22 June 2011 (UTC)


What is the policy on horizontal lines? You have to agree that on Sawsbuck's page, it would really help to break up that section. LimeGreenCharizard 15:42, 14 August 2011 (UTC)

Official poilcy is that they should be avoided if at all possible. Breaking up a page is generally a bad thing, not a good thing; it disrupts the flow. Sections should be used instead. Sawsbuck's page already has sections, it does not need further division. Werdnae (talk) 01:10, 15 August 2011 (UTC)

Minor Edits

May I ask why all of your contribs are marked as minor edits? They couldn't have all been minor. LimeGreenCharizard 19:16, 14 August 2011 (UTC)

Some of us have all our edits marked as minor by default, because most of our edits are. It's easy to forget to unckeck the box when making a large edit. Werdnae (talk) 01:10, 15 August 2011 (UTC)

Type Templates?

Hello, I've noticed that there are two templates for Pokémon types. One is {{type|Type}} and {{t|Type}}. Is there a preferred template or are they enterchangable? --Pokemaster97 02:52, 1 October 2011 (UTC)

See here, bullet five. {{T}} would be used when describing a type as a noun and {{Type}} would be used when describing a type as an adjective. For example, use {{T}} when saying "Pikachu is weak to the Ground type", and use {{Type}} when saying "Pikachu is an Electric-type Pokémon." --Carmen (Talk | contribs) 03:13, 1 October 2011 (UTC)
Ahh, I understand now. Thank you! --Pokemaster97 03:17, 1 October 2011 (UTC)

Deleting an account

Hi there, I was wondering if you could delete/cancel my account? It occurs to me that, although I enjoy reading through this wiki, I don't have the time or the resources right now to contribute. Thanks :) Reedreda Reedreda 17:48, 16 December 2011 (UTC)

Contributing isn't necessary; you can just not contribute. --Carmen (Talk | contribs) 01:14, 17 December 2011 (UTC)

I would rather just not have an account until I actually have a reason for using it, if that's all right. -- unsigned comment from Reedreda (talkcontribs)

Due to the way the wiki is built, we are unable to remove accounts. Feel free to ignore your account though. It isn't doing any harm by leaving it idle. —darklordtrom 04:06, 17 December 2011 (UTC)

Carmenstar97 I need your help! I want to make my own profile page but it wont let me. It's says I need an admins permission. Can I have your permission? Sincerly - Adrian - unsigned comment from Adrian from Gun Slingerz Inc. (talkcontribs)


when will this page be unproteted ? This Pokémon is fully evolved and shoudend't be portected anymore. - unsigned comment from Doddman (talkcontribs)

Move/Addition requests

As the server move has broken the php mail() function, I'll post this here instead:

Hiya, I noticed the archives. wiki is locked and I needed a file moved. The File:DW_unidentified_candy_house.png needs to be changed to File:DW_Gingerbread_House.png as it was released today and I updated the Décor page accordingly.

Speaking of the Décor page, I would like permission to start working on a new Dream World Item template and 2 new pages to separate out the Plain and Dolls catalogue from the Décor page as it's now just a monolithic page.

Feel free to get in contact with me about any of this. I seem to be picking up the Dreamworld section and attempting to keep it up-to-date and cleaning it up where possible.

♪Pyrii♫ talkcontrib 01:23, 10 October 2012 (UTC)

I added my suggestions for discussion on the Décor talk page. But the file move is still needed. ♪Pyrii♫ talkcontrib 01:50, 10 October 2012 (UTC)

The Lylat Wiki returns.

Hello, Carmenstar97! I'm RingtailedFox, assistant administrator at the Lylat Wiki. I just wanted to let you know that we've come back online after a lengthy hiatus, and our URL has changed to . I'm sending the word out to all the NIWA members/affiliates, as the old URL no longer points to the website. :) RingtailedFox (talk) 03:50, 31 October 2012 (UTC)

User: page

Just wondering if you'd know anything behind this, but a few weeks ago I was notified that my user: page was created, but when I went onto a PC a few hours to actually prepare it all, I found that it was all gone, include the message another person left me (I think it was someone starting with "Z"). I just wanted to find out if there was any exact reason why I was told that the page was created, then only a few hours later all evidence of it was erased?

Sorry if I sound rude or anything, I'm not too used to human contact :S - unsigned comment from Flamerheart (talkcontribs)

When can you create a page?

I would like to know when a user can create a new page. I really want to make my user page.

Archives protection removal?

Could you do anything to remove the protection of Bulbagarden Archives? Since X and Y are out now, I guess there is no real reason for keeping it protected, just like Bulbapedia. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 07:15, 25 October 2013 (UTC)

Now that you're active...

Could you please take a look at this link template, and possibly mainspace it? Thanks. オリナル TheOriginalOne 00:07, 26 October 2013 (UTC)

That template already exists: Template:Kal. --Carmen (Talk | contribs) 00:09, 26 October 2013 (UTC)

Reporting a user breaking the Code of Conduct

While I do not disagree with Mask no oni's accusation that I am a stickler and a pedant in this edit summary, and in fact am proud of those qualities because they make for better copy editing, I do believe he is also calling me an "elitist shithole" unless I have misread his post, so I'd like to report him for that. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 20:49, 26 October 2013 (UTC)

Merge files

I think these files/pages should be merged. Since I can't do that as a regular user, I'll post it here.

Skier II OD.png with Buena II OD.png

File:Pokemon Fan Club Chairman Kanto II OD.png with File:Name rater Johto II OD.png and File:Radio Director II OD.png

File:Youngster II OD.png with Schoolboy II OD.png and File:Santos II OD.png and Arthur II OD.png

File:Johto Move Deleter II OD.png with PokéManiac II OD.png and Wesley II OD.png

Frieda II OD.png with Copycat II OD.png

Note: there are two grey pixels that shouldn't be there on the Weasley and Frieda's sprite (not their duplicate uploads though), that you'll notice if you enlarge the image.

A good example of many characters with the same sprite merged to one file is Rocket Grunt M II OD Rocket Grunt M II OD.png.TorNyan (talk) 17:25, 3 March 2014 (UTC)
