Please leave new messages at the bottom of this page.
  • Many a user kindly borrowed this table from this user, and I wanted to conform!
  • I am going to upload card images because of how horrible the current ones are, working down the list starting with Skyridge.
  • Has anyone played Pokémon Trading Card Game 2: Great Rocket Visits? If so, I really need your help.
  • I changed my Aim name to svpelican10, so change it if you have my old one!

i dont know how to do that


Kanto Gym Leaders

Please stop changing the sprites to the newer ones. It isn't consistent, since Diamond/Pearl/Platinum sprites aren't the same as Red/Blue or Gold/Silver sprites. Also, "it's been agreed to use older sprites for older games". --Baby G (talk to me) (see my edits) 01:01, 15 October 2008 (UTC)

It has not been agreed, go to the damn forums and follow the policy that "whatever was on the page before the dispute is what is used until after a decision is made." MoldyOrange 01:03, 15 October 2008 (UTC)
But it is WAY more consistent. Not being consistent is a bad thing. --Baby G (talk to me) (see my edits) 01:04, 15 October 2008 (UTC)
Actually, the more consistant decision is keeping everything what is was before, which is policy, until an actual decision is made. Having old sprites when it is highly unlikely that it will pass is incorrect until a decision is made, especially since the new style negates the need for sprites anyway. MoldyOrange 01:07, 15 October 2008 (UTC)

Lt. Surge

On Lt. Surge's page, you made something incorrect by reverting all of my edit. You made it say that Electabuzz is his 3rd Pokémon in Generation II, when it's actually his 5th (and last). Next time, please look at all of the edit you're reverting. --Baby G (talk to me) (see my edits) 01:35, 15 October 2008 (UTC)

You know what, I don't care what you have to say anymore! You have hurt my feelings extremely and I still refuse to forgive you because it hurt too much. So shut up and just suck it up and change it for God's sakes, instead of complaining whenever anything I do affects you in the smallest way! MoldyOrange 01:41, 15 October 2008 (UTC)
How exactly did I hurt your feelings? I never said anything offensive to you! --Baby G (talk to me) (see my edits) 02:05, 15 October 2008 (UTC)
Section header's pretty offensive. TTEchidna 02:57, 15 October 2008 (UTC)
I don't see how it could be offensive. Moldy's used a similar header on one of my talk page comments, and I didn't find it offensive at all. --Baby G (talk to me) (see my edits) 12:14, 15 October 2008 (UTC)
Just because you don't find something offensive doesn't mean nobody will find it offensive. Just bear that in mind. Cipher (Talk) 13:05, 15 October 2008 (UTC)
Fine, I changed the header. Happy now? --Baby G (talk to me) (see my edits) 14:39, 17 October 2008 (UTC)

Pokédex data order

I switched it because that's the order in which it appears on the cards. These data boxes were first used for Base Set where, yes, the Pokédex number appeared last on the card. It's too much of a job to change the order for all DP cards, but I think it should be in the right order for Stormfront onwards, given the fact that the cards no longer have Pokédex entries. It wasn't an edit in disagreement with yours or anything like that, that's just how I've done all Stormfront pages so far, and I didn't want there to be any inconsistencies. Cipher (Talk) 11:24, 16 October 2008 (UTC)

Entry Pack '08 and Entry Pack '08 DX

Are both pages really necessary? I mean, I know they're different products, but so are Moonlit Pursuit and Dawn Dash, and so are Cry from the Mysterious and Temple of Anger. Wouldn't we be able to merge the two pages, improving all the information in that article (probably under the Entry Pack '08 title), part of which would include information on each product and stating how the DX version is a deluxe version (other than the inclusion of the Raichu half deck)? Cipher (Talk) 16:41, 17 October 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, go ahead. They say most of the same information anyway. MoldyOrange 18:55, 17 October 2008 (UTC)
Would that involve deleting '08 and moving '08 DX, or am I okay to just move the necessary data over to '08 and change '08 DX into a redirect? Cipher (Talk) 19:10, 17 October 2008 (UTC)
There isn't a good way to merge pages, so no deletion necessary, just move the info from DX to '08 and create the redirect. MoldyOrange 19:12, 17 October 2008 (UTC)

Gift Box DPt card articles

Right, yesterday the Japanese TCG website revealed a new gift box and twelve of the cards that would be in it. I don't want to put the page into the mainspace until the full half deck contents get revealed, but if you take a look at my main userpage, I'm doing card articles for the eleven Pokémon cards that have been revealed. I've translated all the cards and written up the pages, but with the userspace's three-edit limit in place, I can't put them all up there at once. Is there any way I'd be allowed to put them up there now rather than having to do it over a period of three days? Cipher (Talk) 12:30, 18 October 2008 (UTC)

Template:Bad Picture Section

How exactly does the other template work better? If we just use a template that says "The picture in this article is unsatisfactory", the person looking at won't know which picture we're referring to. --Chocolate (talk to me) 23:07, 18 October 2008 (UTC)

Dude, "article" and "section" do NOT mean the same damn thing! --Chocolate 00:23, 20 October 2008 (UTC)


This User's editing history I don't have the power to issue a fourth warning. Can you?--RexRacer -talk 21:47, 19 October 2008 (UTC)

I also do not have the power to issue a fourth warning, go higher up to the burecrats. (I need to learn how to spell that) MoldyOrange 21:48, 19 October 2008 (UTC)
I dont think any are on. He's getting a break, cause if Poli were on...--RexRacer -talk 21:49, 19 October 2008 (UTC)
I do not have the power to use user rights log...I cannot help! MoldyOrange 21:50, 19 October 2008 (UTC)
Either he's disobeying the rules, or he just doesn't know we're talking to him...maybe he doesn't now how the message alert thing works. And since he put his user page on the mainspace, I don't think he knows what or where or how to get to his talk page. M-o, can't you block him?--Tavisource 21:51, 19 October 2008 (UTC)
Block is a harsh thing to do, just wait for a bur. to see and ban him from the userspace. MoldyOrange 21:53, 19 October 2008 (UTC)
I've blocked him from userspace editing (I believe, it's the first time I've used the feature). Twenty-five edits over limit, and four warnings... I would expect after a little while, he might have figured out how to read his talk page at the least. If he really didn't see the warnings, well, he's got plenty of time to figure out how the talk system works now.
I assume he'll need to be granted userspace editing capabilities after a bit, right? I don't know the policy on that yet, it's never come up for me. -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 22:59, 19 October 2008 (UTC)
The ban has only been given once, by TTE, and that person was banned for about a month and a half. 25 is way over the limit, so I say unban him in two months. MoldyOrange 23:01, 19 October 2008 (UTC)
Someone will probably need to remind me on that one, hehe. A shame we can't set user rights to have an expiration date, like blocks or protection. -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 23:07, 19 October 2008 (UTC)
I guess that would be useful for you guys, not that I would know... MoldyOrange 23:09, 19 October 2008 (UTC)
I'm fairly positive that he knew how to access the talkpage. After I told him how to use the usertags they suddenly started working. Sorry about that. I thought that showing him the right format would stop the minor editing, but it just started a new wave of them.--RexRacer -talk 23:17, 19 October 2008 (UTC)
Not your fault he only listened to your comments selectively. -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 23:33, 19 October 2008 (UTC)
On the note of the deleted comment, you cannot give the warnings out of order, they may have edited over, but they slipped the radar. However, if they edit the page after the warning, you can add the second. MoldyOrange 23:38, 19 October 2008 (UTC)
But in twenty two minutes, it will be a new day, according to the server. MoldyOrange 23:38, 19 October 2008 (UTC)
Yep. My, today has been a rough one for the Userspace...--RexRacer -talk 23:39, 19 October 2008 (UTC)

User Edit

Actually, It's a gift for my boyfriend, if you must know :P. user:Starmie121 21 Oct 2008 00:02 (UTC)

  • It's fine, he has my permission to edit it. I'm hopelessly incompetent at wiki. :) user:Rayjt9 21 OCT 2008 00:05 (UTC)
But on your userpage, it says you are NOT in a relationship...--Tavisource 23:10, 20 October 2008 (UTC)
PWND. --ニョロトノ666 23:12, 20 October 2008 (UTC)
???, what's PWND?--Tavisource 23:20, 20 October 2008 (UTC)
Pwnd. --ニョロトノ666 23:24, 20 October 2008 (UTC)
In that case, you're right!--Tavisource 23:27, 20 October 2008 (UTC)

Thank You!

Okay, thanks for getting rid of that old sandbox of mine. User:Agent008

Stormfront card images

SP252 suggested I ask you about this one. I'm thinking about this because, with recent sets, there have been card articles with no images at all, which just means the list of articles with no card images keeps getting bigger and bigger. What I'm considering doing is uploading Japanese card images for Stormfront cards so that we have card images for the immediately and can replace them with English card images whenever we get them (like when I eventually scan in SF). What do you think? Cipher (Talk) 16:13, 21 October 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, of course! The original reason we have images is for the artwork, not the text itself. Now, would these be images from the japanese card website, which are a little small for my taste, or are they actual scans of the Japanese cards? And changing them to English is a simple thing to do, just upload a new version of the image already on the page. I don't see a problem with it, and for some I would actually prefer the Japanese (like the Japanese shiny Pokémon that were sadly turned reverse holo in English). Don't worry about that evergrowing list... cards get off of there all the time, it doesn't really seem to go either way; so, cards going on the list is not a problem. MoldyOrange 22:53, 21 October 2008 (UTC)
As always, they'd be from the Japanese website, as they're the highest-quality images of the Japanese cards available. I'll get onto that later on. Cipher (Talk) 08:23, 22 October 2008 (UTC)

Well, it's been changed.

Now you just need to login on Archives and News and the relinking will be complete. TTEchidna 00:41, 23 October 2008 (UTC)


Are you all Mavericky too?You look at a situtation, and ask yourself "What would a Maerick do?" and then you do that?XD. MysticalMan would have been better.--DCM((TalkContributions))
Yay! You are the 9th one to change your name! Congrats! because every other user needed to have a good reason, and your reason was because you wanted to.--Tavisource 00:48, 23 October 2008 (UTC)
And the first admin to change.--Tavisource 01:38, 23 October 2008 (UTC)
WRONG!!!!! Sketch got a name change. MaverickNate 01:39, 23 October 2008 (UTC)
NO!!!!!!! I can't be wrong...this must be a drea, (panicking)!!!! Anyways, I don't understand why you deleted Ultimatecharizards tags.--Tavisource 02:21, 23 October 2008 (UTC)

The way he copied and pasted them caused his page to be categorized as a usertag on pages listing usertags. --RexRacer -talk 02:22, 23 October 2008 (UTC)

So is mine a problem? I have customed ones too.--Tavisource 02:24, 23 October 2008 (UTC)
I spent about twenty minutes trying to find and fix all the problems, but my computer screwed up and I got tired of fixing other user's problems from the stupid userspace junk. I did it out of frustration because I didn't want to spend an hour on that page. His page was categorized in template categories because of his screw ups, that was the problem. He can add them back the correct way anytime. MaverickNate 02:27, 23 October 2008 (UTC)
And, your page is fine. You didn't copy paste the coding for the categories when you added the tags. MaverickNate 02:27, 23 October 2008 (UTC)
Oh...I see. Well, then, I'm good with it. I'm gonna go watch some tv now.--Tavisource 02:29, 23 October 2008 (UTC)
I'm having trouble remembering that you are still Moldy orange--RexRacer -talk 02:44, 23 October 2008 (UTC)

New Special Energy Template

Which, with permission, I'd like to implement, as I have a day off today. The template itself is here and the proof of the pudding is here. The gallery isn't part of the template, by the way, that's just for cards that have had more than one illustration, such as the Stormfront ones. Can I implement it? Cipher (Talk) 11:58, 23 October 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, that looks good. All I wanted was the two artworks to be shown and both illustrators to be credited. Your template works fantastically. MaverickNate 22:58, 23 October 2008 (UTC)
I've just completed the whole thing: all pages now use the template, galleries implemented where necessary, higher-quality scans for all Special Energy cards from the EX Series onwards uploaded. The older Energy images have been tagged for deletion on the Archives, though - sorry about that, but now that the new template is fully implemented, it won't be happening again with Special Energy images. Cipher (Talk) 12:24, 25 October 2008 (UTC)
Don't be sory that you tagged them! That helps me greatly! MaverickNate 14:46, 25 October 2008 (UTC)

Are you a Maverick too?

I made this user tag,and put it on my user page

{{User Maverick}} just type {{User Maverick}} if you want to use it. --Guardian of Earth |SGMS 2010


Now that the preview has OFFICIALLY air, we can add Grotle to Ash's list as well as changing the DP100 page. [1] But unfortunately, it's still protected.--Tavisource 23:08, 23 October 2008 (UTC)

"Until it airs" is for episodes, not previews. --Shiningpikablu252 23:09, 23 October 2008 (UTC)

Fan Pokémon

I have noticed that when users are creating fan Pokémon, they will use tables and such from real Pokémon articles, which are constructed so that the imputted moves are automatically linked to. Oftentimes these fan Pokémon will have signature moves not found in any Pokémon media. So it will link to ...(move)(Not yet written). This created broken links appearing in the broken links page. And we have no reason to have broken links for these, as they are fan-made moves. Is there a solution?--RexRacer -talk 23:31, 23 October 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, there is. Do you know where the problems are?...they are hard to explain. MaverickNate 01:38, 24 October 2008 (UTC)
I know that there is one here, and i spotted another one today as well. I'm not on my normal computer, however, so I can't check.--RexRacer -talk 01:47, 24 October 2008 (UTC)
Okay, the main problem was that he used Template:PokémonInfobox when the userspace version for fake Pokémon is Template:PokémonInfoboxNoncat...that is the same for move, that template is Template:MoveInfoboxNoncat. MaverickNate 01:54, 24 October 2008 (UTC)


Not nice...why move mine and not other people's?....and could you unprotected, I will keep my promise not to move it again...take my word for it.--Tavisource 04:12, 25 October 2008 (UTC)

If you promise not to move it again, then it doesn't need to be unprotected. You can still edit it, it is only protected from moves. MaverickNate 04:13, 25 October 2008 (UTC)
Oh! I get it...but I promise...unless an admin tells me to, of course.---Tavisource 04:20, 25 October 2008 (UTC)

GB Decks

Would now be a good time to add Ronald decks and such? And add other club-member decks when I add them? Gligar 15:58, 25 October 2008 (UTC)
