I dont swear that much! The only person I ever swore at was Guardian, and no one cares about that.DCM((曲奇饼妖怪Spy on My Edits)) 03:02, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

...Why on earth are you telling me this?--freezingCOLD (page, talk) 20:07, 8 January 2009 (UTC)


I hate that message at the top of your main page that says you have new messages"! You've tricked me at least 71 times!! --Charmander -(talk or stalk!) 02:38, 13 January 2009 (UTC)

That reminds me that I have to shoot Missingno for starting that. you stop it to, its ticking me off . Expect when I really have a new message, and then it shows doubleDCM((曲奇饼妖怪Spy on My Edits)) 02:45, 13 January 2009 (UTC)
Hee hee.--freezingCOLD (page, talk) 02:50, 13 January 2009 (UTC)
Whenever I see the new message box on a user page, it's almost sure its going to be a fake. Jmath 15:59, 13 January 2009 (UTC)

About signatures

Thanks for warning =) I'm trying to remember all policies and codes. Is it right now, my signature? Gabriel Rocha (Diby esp) 22:13, 13 January 2009 (UTC)


If you are going to change it to say however instead of what I had, that correct punctuatiopn would be "Pokémon games; however," not ",however ". It would use both the semicolon and comma, not just the misplaced comma. MaverickNate 22:15, 14 January 2009 (UTC)

..."punctuatiopn"? Oh, sorry. I didn't know that, and I've probably done that 10384626446 times by now...:'(--freezingCOLD (page, talk) 22:17, 14 January 2009 (UTC)


i actually liked it (apparently Mav did too), i thought it was cool. maybe itd be more at home on the forums in the new chit-chat section? -- MAGNEDETH 20:59, 15 January 2009 (UTC)

I dunno...I don't really use the forums.--freezingCOLD (page, talk) 21:01, 15 January 2009 (UTC)
now an excuse to do so! i dont use them either, but, theyve opened up a pedia discussion section for us wiki goers. its also a good place to bring up large problems. -- MAGNEDETH 21:05, 15 January 2009 (UTC)
ok...i guess...--freezingCOLD (page, talk) 21:12, 15 January 2009 (UTC)
(drumroll)iiiiiiit's not working!(cymbals)--freezingCOLD (page, talk) 21:19, 15 January 2009 (UTC)
youre not the only one...oh well. when it DOES come back, check it out. -- MAGNEDETH 21:28, 15 January 2009 (UTC)

You're not alone

There are others around, but problems that started yesterday are causing a lot of editors to lose their access to many areas of Bulbagarden. - Kogoro | Talk to me - 20:45, 16 January 2009 (UTC)

Oh. I see.--freezingCOLD (page, talk) 20:47, 16 January 2009 (UTC)

"there are exceptions"

i went to the admin TTEchidna when i clicked the link, what does that tell me?? what exceptions??? -- Landfish7 21:46, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

Kk! *headdesk*--RexRacer -talk 21:47, 19 January 2009 (UTC)
Landfish7:What I meant was way too many users go there to babble about any problems they might have. This applies to any admin, essentially.
RexRacer:What?--freezingCOLD (page, talk) 21:48, 19 January 2009 (UTC)
Because they cant afford therapists. Case. ClosedDCM((Mock MeEdits)) 21:49, 19 January 2009 (UTC)


Do you think you can take care of Chocolate's screw ups? They are all throughout his recent contributions, and I would really appreciate you using your expertise in fixing them, because of how good you are at them. ;) MaverickNate 20:27, 21 January 2009 (UTC)

Um...sure. Ok.--freezingCOLD (page, talk) 20:28, 21 January 2009 (UTC)
*gasps for breath* Ok, i think i got all of them.--freezingCOLD (page, talk) 20:43, 21 January 2009 (UTC)
Mav, if my "screw ups" were using {{g}}, what's so bad about that template? Chocolate (Chat with Me) 21:18, 21 January 2009 (UTC)
I'm sure he put it on your talk.--freezingCOLD (page, talk) 21:19, 21 January 2009 (UTC)


Why are you subst'ing {{g}} on all the card pages I put it on? We are supposed to use link templates whenever possible. Chocolate (Chat with Me) 21:15, 21 January 2009 (UTC)

*Points to above section* I was asked to.--freezingCOLD (page, talk) 21:16, 21 January 2009 (UTC)
As part of style, as these guys will tell you, [[Pokémon games]] is always used over {{g|games}}. Cipher (Talk) 21:31, 21 January 2009 (UTC)
But why? We are supposed to use link templates whenever possible. Chocolate (Chat with Me) 21:33, 21 January 2009 (UTC)
Mav, Geo, or evkl, i don't remember who, said something about laziness and improper wikicode.--freezingCOLD (page, talk) 21:34, 21 January 2009 (UTC)
If using link templates is "being lazy", we may as well just get rid of all the link templates. Chocolate (Chat with Me) 21:36, 21 January 2009 (UTC)
Not right at all. In some cases, link templates are necessary and very useful. In this case, they're really not. Cipher (Talk) 21:37, 21 January 2009 (UTC)
Well, why are they not useful in this case? Chocolate (Chat with Me) 21:38, 21 January 2009 (UTC)
Link templates such as {{p}} and {{m}} are used to make sure people link to the right page and avoid redirects and disambiguations. Additionally, they cause the visible link text to appear differently than the link destination. On the other hand, {{g}} simply alleviates the user from typing six characters, and further obfuscates the wikicode when someone is editing it, especially to new users. For instance, reading "Charizard is a {{g|}}." is completely unintuitive. — Laoris (Blah) 21:42, 21 January 2009 (UTC)
See, I'd written an essay, but that pretty much sums it up perfectly. Cipher (Talk) 21:47, 21 January 2009 (UTC)

Pikachu Sprites...

Um, here... Pokémon Yellow game opening... it's nothing... just compare Pikachu surfing and its GSC sprites. And, um, here... Spr 2g 025.png and Spr 2s 025.png and File:Spr 2c 025.gif. Now that I lokk at it, mostly its Crystal spirte looks like it. So, what do you should be on this page?--DRAGONBEASTX 21:23, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

It's still opinion. Which isnt allowed or something.--freezingCOLD (page, talk) 21:24, 22 January 2009 (UTC)


I will use the preview button, instead. I didn't know it would bother anyone, anyway. I didn't even know you'd know when I was editing it. I apologize. I'll continue editing, but I will only save tomorrow as you've asked,

Gabriel Rocha (Diby esp) 21:32, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

Ok, I will hold on. It's because I saved before reading what you wrote to me. I apologize once more. Gabriel Rocha (Diby esp) 21:32, 22 January 2009 (UTC)
