I am made of metal,
My magnets gleam,
I am perpetual,
I keep this site clean.

There's been rumblings of too much non-pedia discussion around here, so in the best interest of on-topic discussion, if you want to tell me something personal, or just plain off-topic, send me a Personal Message (PM) on the Bulbagarden Forums.

BTW...tired of waiting for a new Pokémon game just to tackle some new gyms? Then bring it on.

Future Lockdown

Will regular users still be allowed to edit talkpages or no? ht14 08:11, 2 November 2009 (UTC)

nobody, nothing. -- MAGNEDETH 08:12, 2 November 2009 (UTC)
So admins, bureaucrats, checkusers, bots, etc cannot... ok. ht14 08:13, 2 November 2009 (UTC)
well, i thought you meant non-admins. admins will still be able to edit, so we can work. -- MAGNEDETH 08:14, 2 November 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, that's what I initially meant. You got me there with nobody... got it. i.e. temporary block for EVERY page until the weekend. ht14 08:16, 2 November 2009 (UTC)
basically, the entire userbase will be going into abuse, minus admins. and the abuse will cover all pages instead of just userpages. and you wont actually be in abuse. -- MAGNEDETH 08:18, 2 November 2009 (UTC)
A Bulbanews article has just been published. Full details are there, and you can inquire on that talk page or in the forums if you must. —darklordtrom 08:30, 2 November 2009 (UTC)

Userspace Privilages

Hi, sorry to keep bothering you on your talk page. I was just wondering if I have earned my userpage editing privilages back. I have definetely learned my lesson. Also, just to make sure, I should edit the mainspace at least 30 times before making a userspace edit, right? I can assure you that I can use these privilages properly and I will remember to use the preview button (lol). Thanks :). -LugiaRocks (TalkEdits) 19:03, 4 November 2009 (UTC)

youve only been without your privileges for 2 weeks. the standard amount of time to wait is a month, pending good behavior. have you been editing well? yes, but youve also been bothering me about it, and spending a lot of time on talk pages. just relax, and stop bringing it up. the more times you keep asking, the more i dont want to give them back. just be patient, keep making good edits, and if youre quiet about it, ill consider giving them back before your time runs out. -- MAGNEDETH 20:14, 4 November 2009 (UTC)
Okay :). -LugiaRocks (TalkEdits) 20:18, 4 November 2009 (UTC)

Lax and Aero

Okay so I've been reading up on Pokemon Special and I can see that many main team members do not have articles. I will take it upon myself to create these articles myself but I just want your permission first. I will get started on these at least tommorow and I've done some work on the Red article for volume 1 so if you want to see that for proof. LAx and Aero will be my first. Come back with your permission or not and please say why not if no. BrokenMotor 21:39, 7 November 2009 (UTC)

i dont know what youre talking about as i dont read the manga. your best bet is to talk to CoolPikachu! as he is the manga leader. -- MAGNEDETH 21:40, 7 November 2009 (UTC)
Pardon my intrusion, but I believe it was decided that Aero and Lax were not notable for their own articles. But it's still better to talk to CP first. --Psyライダー 22:15, 7 November 2009 (UTC)


Is there any way to check how many edits I have made in a month? Like how many I've made this November. If I look in my contribs it is all messy and I can't tell how many and is I go in preferences it just says the total. -LugiaRocks (TalkEdits) 23:31, 10 November 2009

for a rough estimate you can go into your contribs and select mainspace only, but thats the best youre going to get. a genuine number of edits can only be attained from special pages you dont really have access to. -- MAGNEDETH 23:33, 10 November 2009 (UTC)
Alright, thanks. I'm going for contributor of the month this month. I have around 400 edits in 10 days.
Just saying: we have the same birthday - which is pretty sweet. Ok, I will leave you alone now. -Lugia (TalkEdits) 06:05, 11 November 2009 (UTC)
One last quetions... how can I make a link to the Archives? I know that from the Archive to bulbapedia it is: {{bp| but what is it to the Archives is it {{ba| -Lugia (TalkEdits) 17:44, 11 November 2009 (UTC)


Hi. I August I abused my user page rights and ended up locking my page. since then I have tried to learn my lesson and and use the preview button and signature and also listen more carefully to the advice of those more experienced than me. on November 10 you sent me a message saying that my privileges for editing my page have been taken away.

Though I am willing to pay the price and go without this for as long as you see fit, I am somewhat confused about what I have done in November that could possibly hurt bulbapedia or break any guidelines, though I am guessing that it is about the same thing as before.

If it is, then why can't I edit ANYTHING????

Shouldn't I at least be able to edit normal pages? If my editing privileges(except for talk pages) are completely restricted for the time being, why not just ban me?!?! Please respond

GEN1KING (TALK) 05:07, 11 November 2009 (UTC)
gee, id love to help you User:Example but i dont have any records of you doing anything, or my editing your privleges at all. -- MAGNEDETH 05:10, 11 November 2009 (UTC)

Your clarity... something to behold. Truly, it is a work of art. There seems to be no way anyone can misunderstand what it is you ask of them. Glinn Mgraw 13:29, 15 November 2009 (UTC)

i dont guarantee my foreseeable premonitions, its up to the perceiver of my conveyed demographic to elaborate in a sense to understand its true meaning. the fact youre Australian sort of puts a damper on that. -- MAGNEDETH 18:01, 15 November 2009 (UTC)

Your notability page

Could you put James's second Victreebel up there? CuboneKing 01:56, 16 November 2009 (UTC)

i could, but its already marked for removal, just not on my page. -- MAGNEDETH 01:58, 16 November 2009 (UTC)
Where's it marked for removal? CuboneKing 01:59, 16 November 2009 (UTC)
nowhere really. its going to moved to the list of temp Team Rocket Pokemon. -- MAGNEDETH 02:01, 16 November 2009
Why not do it now? (sorry for bothering you) CuboneKing 02:03, 16 November 2009 (UTC)
im only currently patrolling, i dont have the time. ill do it later. -- MAGNEDETH 02:04, 16 November 2009 (UTC)

Pokémon Counterparts

I recently made an article: <link removed>. It is absolutely nowhere near complete... until i have gonished it should i move it to my Sandbox? -LūgīāRōcks (Tālk δ Ēdīts) 00:36, 18 November 2009 (UTC)

it is now located at User:LugiaRocks/Pokémon counterparts. -- MAGNEDETH 00:40, 18 November 2009 (UTC)
K- when it is done itll be shining on the main space. -LūgīāRōcks (Tālk δ Ēdīts) 00:45, 18 November 2009 (UTC)
ask first, theres some debate over if its even notable or not. -- MAGNEDETH 00:46, 18 November 2009 (UTC)

k well do u think that it is notable it could be merged with that gender counterparts thing -LūgīāRōcks (Tālk δ Ēdīts) 00:49, 18 November 2009 (UTC)

idk, well see how it turns out. -- MAGNEDETH 00:49, 18 November 2009 (UTC)

New HG/SS Pictures

I just now got some new English HeartGold and Soulsilver screenshots (yes, these are legit. I got them from Poké, and they are high quality). Should I replace any Japanese screenshots with these, or do I just stick them in the game's page? Also, you use .png for screenshots, right? Pokemon486 01:28, 18 November 2009 (UTC)

did you upload these shots to the Archives? and yes, we use png for screens. -- MAGNEDETH 01:30, 18 November 2009 (UTC)
Well, that's the thing. I will upload them, but I need to know where I should put it. Pokemon486 01:33, 18 November 2009 (UTC)
