The goal of Encyclopaediae Pokémonis is to be just as international as Pokémon itself, and helping aspiring Pokémon wikis in languages we don't yet have is a great way to help achieve that goal. However, if we don't even know who the possible aspirers for Encyclopaediae Pokémonis's ninth language even are, there's no way any growth can take place. If you speak or understand a language that's currently not represented in Encyclopaediae Pokémonis and happen to find a wiki in that language with aspirations to join Encyclopaediae Pokémonis, then don't hesitate to drop me a line. Remember, an aspirier can't grow if they remain sheltered from the world!

If you understand Brazilian Portuguese, or know someone who does, then the Portuguese arm of Encyclopaediae Pokémonis is in desperate need of your assistance. Many, if not all, of that wiki's articles are in dire need of improvement, be it massive cleanup or even adding some real content to begin with. Their sysops are never around to handle things, and their interwiki bot has done nothing since late September--of 2008. The fact that a trusted member of Encyclopaediae Pokémonis has fallen into such disrepair is disturbing, to say the least. Brazilians do not deserve quality this low. If you can help improve the Portuguese end, then I highly recommend you do so. Today.

Dustox (Galactic's Conquest)

How on earth is a Psychic-type Dustox an error? Dustox is part-Poison, and unless you've been under a rock since 2006, you'll know that Poison-types are now represented as Psychic-types in the TCG due to the ridiculous abundance of Grass-types. Cipher 17:01, 9 October 2008 (UTC)

He's right. I play the TCG competitively, and there are about as many Psychic Poison types as Grass Poison types. --ニョロトノ666 20:53, 9 October 2008 (UTC)

I don't understand...

I don't understand why the Bulbapedia admins consider anime gun-jumps as something wrong and evil which should be eradicated, while game gun-jumps and leaks are perfectly okay and acceptable. I don't see the difference between the two. You simply have some kind of an obsession, I believe. --Maxim 17:28, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

It's because anime stuff falls under an "until it airs" policy. It's possible that a detail could be revealed, highly popularized, and then later revealed to be wrong.
Enforcment of "until it airs" was stepped up after an event largely referred to nowadays as the Cacnea debacle. It was started by Shiny Noctowl after what was a then-routine plot-spoiling of events from DP053 and DP054. Shiny Noctowl then proceeded to move the James's Cacnea article to "Gardenia's Cacnea", citing "James no longer has a Cacnea, we shouldn't have an article about something that doesn't exist" and giving bullsh*t points to try to defend that angle. Negativity ensued, and a poll was waged. The poll heavily favored a move back (the article was later moved back), but Shiny Noctowl was determined to tip the scales by any means necessary; first by adding bullsh*t weighting garbage, then by messing with the evidence, and even claiming that "consensus" meant that "everyone agrees" and since that not everyone agreed, it wasn't consensus.
During that same timeframe, Ash's Chimchar suffered a minor incident also related to the plot-spoiling, when a vandal erased the page's content over and over, claiming the entire page was false. However, this incident was far more minor compared to the larger Cacnea debacle.
The Cacnea debacle was so big that the plot-spoiling practice was ended once and for all after the debacle broke out. The "until it airs" policy was stepped up starting with DP055 and has remained stepped up since. --Shiningpikablu252 17:43, 10 October 2008 (UTC)
...But that debate was all about notability. How did you get from there to not trusting Newtype? --FabuVinny |Talk Page| 19:11, 12 October 2008 (UTC)

A Few Things

How do you get the Golden Bulbasaur Award? I saw it on your usertag...also, what Special characters should I make? ht14 14:01, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

How should I know? I don't even know how TTEchidna bestowed the award on me to begin with...--Shiningpikablu252 15:28, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
You subst-ed everyone's siganature templates. And I mean everyone's. (Except I had mine, Tina's and part way into TTE's when you started.) MoldyOrange 15:34, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
What do you mean, Moldy orange? ht14 23:55, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
A long long time ago, about the end of march, a new signature policy came out and all the templates we were using were no longer allowed. We had to go to every talk page (User talk, talk, Shipping talk, etc) we ever commented on since making the templates, and "subst" them. (For a small example, go here, many other pages were bigger than this. I did all 93 of mine, 540 of Tina's and I started TTE's. Shiningpikablu came in and did so many more users. Whenever he found a template, he did it. There was no stopping him! He did so much that TTE decided to give him the Golden Bulbasaur Award for hel;ping relieve server stress. And we all lived happily ever after, til that damn server crash at the end of May. MoldyOrange 01:02, 14 October 2008 (UTC)
Oh....lolz...but wouldn't that risk overide of server? ht14 01:04, 14 October 2008 (UTC)
The fact that people were changing their signature templates created a greater amount of server stress than removing the templates themselves. Whenever someone changed it, the server had to go to every talk page the user ever put the template on, and change it itself. People were changing them too often and it got out of hand and the policy was created. MoldyOrange 01:07, 14 October 2008 (UTC)
I see. Thanks! ht14 01:13, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

GB Decks

Is there anything else that we would be able to put on each GB Decks page? Look here for what I have already. I think it looks a little empty, but I can't think of anything else, and I was hoping you would be able to. MoldyOrange 17:23, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

No ideas here, either.
However, if there's anyone who would have an idea, Politoed666 would. --Shiningpikablu252 19:50, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
Okay, thanks anyway... MoldyOrange 19:52, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

darkrai breeder

who is this guy? he seems like he`s wasting his time trying to prove some fake pokemon he photoshopped is real,he`s fighting a losing battle.any one who STRONGLY wants him to stop talking about glatra put your signature on my talk page in the section darkrai breeder --Xam430 22:38, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

please note Im not trying to offend him--Xam430 22:43, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

You do know darkrai breeder's block doesn't expire until the 27th, right? And if darkrai breeder does return and revert to form--he's got a new game to create some phony methods for in his fruitless quest to prove that a fake glitch Pokémon is real--odds are he'll be on the outside looking in forever before too long. --Shiningpikablu252 23:27, 14 October 2008 (UTC)
Caution: Useless edit ahead: Amen! LordArceus 00:47, 4 November 2008 (UTC)


That one Tyler in Kanto may not even be named Tyler. The other option was Taylor. The CoD list was inconsistent with the episode page, and I just picked one and made them the same. I don't know which is correct, so it could be either. MoldyOrange 03:31, 18 October 2008 (UTC)

Pokéfarm Article?

You deleted my Pokéfarm article...if I do an article w/ more info can it stay on? Emp395 14:44, 18 October 2008 (UTC)

That depends. It's entirely possible that the site in question isn't notable enough for its own article no matter how detailed such an article is.
If the site was only recently created (i.e. the site's only a week old or so), odds are it will be considered non-notable whether an article is one sentence or a hundred.
Additionally, if an article appears to be basically nothing but advertising a fansite, odds are the article gets trashed. Bulbapedia is not an ad agency for fansites. --Shiningpikablu252 14:47, 18 October 2008 (UTC)
Well it's more than 1 year old and it is fairly popular...Emp395 22:28, 18 October 2008 (UTC)


Did you get a scanner? MoldyOrange 18:57, 20 October 2008 (UTC)

In a printer-scanner-copier combo device yesterday. Parts in my old printer had reached the end of its service life quite awhile back, hence the need to get a new printer. Given that a combo device had a reasonable price, why not get a combo device?
Sure, my first kick at using the scanner functions may not have yielded perfect results, but you'll never know if you don't try, right? --Shiningpikablu252 19:03, 20 October 2008 (UTC)

Block me

OK, it's official. I'm addicted to editing. However, this interferes with my schoolwork, and as a result, my grades are falling. Can you please block me until, say, November 1 so that I can put my full attention to my schoolwork??--Kkllnn blastoise 22:34, 20 October 2008 (UTC)

Stormfront cards

Here's a thought...for the first time in weeks, I have no homework or coursework or any other studies to do tonight. I also have tomorrow morning off. If I maybe used PokéBeach's IFDS translations to draft up card pages in NotePad, save the pages as .txt files and then modify those drafts as necessary (e.g. card numbers, attack text etc.) the next time cards get revealed, I could get pages up thick and fast tomorrow morning. What do you think? Cipher (Talk) 15:09, 21 October 2008 (UTC)

Sounds good.
Funny you should mention Notepad, since that's the program I myself use to put in an article base and make modifications. Search-and-replace saves a lot of time when dealing with Pokémon names. --Shiningpikablu252 15:12, 21 October 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, I do that for stuff like...well, last I used it was for the DPt-P promo cards and the Gift Box cards, but when scans catch me off-guard like they just did I tend to just type as fast as I can in the wiki editor. Probably should be the other way around, but I guess once you've got a pattern you use, it's difficult to get out of it. Cipher (Talk) 15:17, 21 October 2008 (UTC)

Oh, also, should I upload some Japanese card images for Stormfront so that all card articles have a card image, even if Japanese? I'll be purchasing some Stormfront boosters in a couple of weeks, and I'll be uploading those, but still, for the time being... Cipher (Talk) 16:02, 21 October 2008 (UTC)

That could work, but I'm not entirely sure on this one. I'd go to Moldy orange for a second opinion on this one. --Shiningpikablu252 16:09, 21 October 2008 (UTC)
Shiningpikablu252, you seem a little reluctant on using the Japanese images. Is there some sort of hidden problem that I don't see? MoldyOrange 01:11, 22 October 2008 (UTC)
It's not reluctance, it's just that I'm not really the expert when it comes to images. --Shiningpikablu252 01:20, 22 October 2008 (UTC)

Last night I got very few articles done, only seven or eight, two or three of which I've been able to use today. So what I'm gonna do today is get as many done as possible and upload Japanese card images for the set, then I can hopefully get a lot put straight up tomorrow. Probably would have helped if I'd have had the idea a couple of weeks ago... Cipher (Talk) 11:52, 22 October 2008 (UTC)

Don't give up. Even a late-rising plan could yield fruit sooner rather than later. --Shiningpikablu252 15:33, 22 October 2008 (UTC)
True as that may be, I've had pretty much no time to do card articles, and I'm about to go out, which means I won't be able to finish off the Stormfront cards. That said, Over the next three or so months, I will be doing Galactic's Conquest card article drafts, so that they're all as good as ready for DP8 in February 2009. Cipher (Talk) 14:41, 24 October 2008 (UTC)


go to User:ArceusEX/Rotom's Status ---User:ArceusEX


He's harassing me about Saturn's Toxicroak, and hasn't given a good reason y Dark Pulse pic is good against Image:Saturn's Toxicroak.jpg. Please, I don't want to be blocked again! He won't even read my reasoning properly --KukiTalk 21:49, 23 October 2008 (UTC)

Tc26's pic was not considered in the discussion!! IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE A COMPROMISE TO THE OTHER PIX! WHY WON"T ANYONE UNDERSTAND????!!!


You might also want to protect Legendary Pokémon, just to be safe, with the Rotom stuff and all. Gligar 22:13, 23 October 2008 (UTC)

Just asking a favor but could you block Saturn's Toxicroak. There's an edit war going on. Jmath 22:25, 23 October 2008 (UTC)


Please block him. He's trying to keep my comments erased from his talk page. He thinks it's spam when it's not. --Chocolate 22:33, 23 October 2008 (UTC)

No block. Just a warning. From me and/or 'pikablu. If he doesn't get the message, then he gets a little time off. --ニョロトノ666 22:34, 23 October 2008 (UTC)
He removed my comments again. One of you, please revert him. --Chocolate 22:35, 23 October 2008 (UTC)

WOuld you please block him?--RexRacer -talk 23:34, 25 October 2008 (UTC)

Dusknoir LV.X and Machamp LV.X

I'm not entirely happy. You know that we use LV.X now, yet you still created the pages under Lv.X and used LV.X as a redirect. Why? What's the point? Because you know that I'll eventually notice and get it moved back anyway. If you want utter solid proof that the correct terminology really is LV.X, believe me, I can bring it by the bucketload. Cipher (Talk) 11:10, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

Well, would you have rather had CoolPikachu! make the articles, knowing they would have been crappy to start out with? That probably would have been the case had I not stepped in, keeping in mind that he created the Gyarados article and saying "attacks will come later", then removing the entire Pokédex data field upon finding the Pokédex entry at the bottom of the card was missing. --Shiningpikablu252 17:04, 26 October 2008 (UTC)
Doesn't change the fact that it would have been just as easy for you to make the pages at LV.X instead of at Lv.X. Cipher (Talk) 18:17, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

Lawrence III

I accidentally undid n edit, which Jmath was right about, where he moved the Name origin to the bottom. Could u do that for us?--KukiTalk 17:06, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

Tylerkarnes is at it again

I'm not sure if you've heard of him, but Tylerkarnes is a vandal here who messes stuff up and inserts incorrect info. Look at this. He's been blocked before, and I think he should be blocked again. Chocolate 17:16, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

Thank you for blocking him. Chocolate 17:23, 26 October 2008 (UTC)


Should we do anything? I mean, I think he meantwell but...I am--KukiTalk 18:39, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

Not now. Two non-notable articles and a questionable edit is not enough to warrant a block. A warning, maybe, but definitely not a block. --Shiningpikablu252 18:42, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

Top contributors of the month

The September one is not fully up yet and October is nearing its end. It's almost time that we got ready for the October one. Seriously, could none of you guys contact with Zhen?--Diby 17:52, 27 October 2008 (UTC)


Ttechidna2...? -- MAGNEDETH 23:11, 28 October 2008 (UTC)


Yo, just done a quick search on the Japanese site and for some Japanese scans for you. Slugma #98 is from e-Card 4 and Slugma #99 is from e-Card 5, because the Japanese scan I found of the latter had the same card text as the card article. Hope that helps. Cipher (Talk) 17:36, 31 October 2008 (UTC)


Check out what he did--KukiTalk 19:00, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

In a situation where you are trying to direct someone to would be best to just say what it is without dancing around it. -Sketch 00:26, 1 November 2008 (UTC)

Color Code

What is the color code for yellow for the Poké-Powers? Mr. Mime and Mr. Mime's powers are purple on the page, but yellow in real life. MaverickNate 00:23, 1 November 2008 (UTC)

The Vending card should get the color code CC9900. The Jungle card has the color coding of the English print of the card on its page; it appears the yellows on Psychic-type Pokémon Powers were changed to blues when the cards were translated to English, with the odd exception of Wizards Promo 47 Mew, whose yellow became red instead for some odd reason. --Shiningpikablu252 00:44, 1 November 2008 (UTC)


He's redirecting his page to a Userpage of a different title, User:Anomunus. Is this allowed? (and User:Anomunus already exists~Ποκεμανιακα0β 00:58, 1 November 2008 (UTC)


The redirect for Paul's Magmar was not corrected. Could you please change it to "On hand"? Jmath 15:09, 1 November 2008 (UTC)


How do I change a user's group to "abuse" if he's gone over his edit limit too many times? --((Marton imos)) 03:00, 2 November 2008 (UTC)

...or is it a BC only power? --((Marton imos)) 03:01, 2 November 2008 (UTC)
I don't have the powers necessary to do such an action, so I can't help you here. Please pester TTEchidna about this issue. --Shiningpikablu252 03:03, 2 November 2008 (UTC)
Sorry. --((Marton imos)) 03:03, 2 November 2008 (UTC)


You think it's OK to direct userspace abusers to the fanon wikia? --((Marton imos)) 00:42, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

Actually, the person I had just dealt with was not a userspace abuser. That user had created a page about a fanon move in the main namespace.
Anyway, if a user does get hit with the "abuse" tag and is known for writing a lot of fanon in their userspace, I'd go ahead and recommend the fanon wiki. However, check the userspace edits before recommending the fanon wiki; if the user doesn't primarily edit about fanon in their userspace, don't recommend the fanon wiki. --Shiningpikablu252 00:45, 4 November 2008 (UTC)
I apologize; "userspace abuser" was not the term I was looking for. I meant people who load up their subpages with fanon, or write it in the main space. I asked you because when I brought it up with TTE, he was somewhat non-committal in his answer, but if you're doing it, then maybe it's a good idea after all. --((Marton imos)) 00:48, 4 November 2008 (UTC)
Well, I admit that I may have been a little soon in my initial recommendation, but yes, I would recommend the fanon wiki for one who has a lot of fanon links or pages in their userspace, especially if writing about fanon is a user's primary purpose. --Shiningpikablu252 00:55, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

Jessie's Yanmega

Does Jessie's Yanmega have more than tow abilities?--Diamaster 04:19, 6 November 2008 (UTC)


I have found some information, but I don't really know what to do with it. This card's Pokémon Power was changed to a Poké-Power when it was released through Pokémon Web. Could you possibly find a way to display both the Power and Poké-Power, without removing any information? Also, the powers are in yellow for this card, not purple. MaverickNate 15:50, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

This also occured for other cards as well. Dark Kadabra, Dark Slowbro, and Dragonite were changed to Poké-Powers, and Dugtrio was changed to a Poké-Body. MaverickNate 15:57, 4 November 2008 (UTC)
Think. How did Charizard get handled for its Stormfront reprint? Try handling the cards in question a similar way.
I've already mentioned the color code for yellow Pokémon Power text on this page, but just in case you've forgotten, the color code is CC9900. For the record, blue power text is 660099 and red power text is CC0000. --Shiningpikablu252 15:58, 4 November 2008 (UTC)
Okay, thanks! MaverickNate 15:59, 4 November 2008 (UTC)
Somewhat off topic, but there are A LOT of cards that need Jap names. Should we add the template as seen with the Shadow moves? ht14 16:02, 4 November 2008 (UTC)
I would say not unless current projects going on grind to a halt. At least two users are making active updates in those sectors. At the rate we're going, we're probably not going to need a template. --Shiningpikablu252 16:05, 4 November 2008 (UTC)
I'm saying that we DO have that template, but I'm not sure if I should add it, that's all. ht14 16:06, 4 November 2008 (UTC)
We would rather not add it, the categories are woirking perfectly as planned, and we have people taking the text off of the card images, off of the Japanese wiki, and off of the Japanese TCG website. This mini project is going as planned, and we are also fixing other problems, such as mis-translations, and also, Dragon Rage had the wrong kani on the page, and we were able to find and fix it. Also, I'd rather not make 3500 edits to pages just to add the template when we could be using that time to add the names anyway. MaverickNate 16:19, 4 November 2008 (UTC)
Okay, new issue with these. Pokémon Web cards do not have levels, are they still considered reprints? The lack of levels is the only thing different from these cards. MaverickNate 16:58, 4 November 2008 (UTC)
Yes, a card can still be considered a reprint if it lacks the level. Pikachu from the Base Set was legally usable while POP Series 2 was Modified-legal despite the POP 2 reprinted Pikachu not having the level, as every necessary element to get deemed a reprint (HP, attack costs, attack effects or similar rewords/tweaks, Weakness, Resistance, Retreat Cost) was present on the POP 2 version of the card. The reprinted Pokémon Web cards fall into this situation.
Now, there are some situations where missing or altered elements results in two very similar cards be considered different from each other. The reason Dratini 52 from EX Team Rocket Returns is not considered a reprint of the Dratini from the Base Set is because the former has no Resistance, while the latter has a Psychic Resistance. The difference in Resistance makes the difference in making them different cards, similar to how attack costs kept Pikachu from POP Series 4 from being a reprint of the Jungle Pikachu. --Shiningpikablu252 17:10, 4 November 2008 (UTC)
Okay, that makes sense. While we are on the subject of the Web cards, though, there were two of those TCG GB only cards in Web, Tangela and Electrode, and I was thinking that we should move them to their Web nameset. I was also thiking about doing this with the many promotions, but I don't think that is necessary for anything other than the two GB. Is that a good idea to move them? MaverickNate 17:18, 4 November 2008 (UTC)
Eh, no, I wouldn't move them. Such a move would probably suggest that those two cards were original cards in Web and had no origins from the Game Boy Color game. --Shiningpikablu252 17:21, 4 November 2008 (UTC)
I guess we can have the infomation for Web on the pages... okay. I can get the Web card images for them, so that we don't have to have that game screenshot on Electrode. MaverickNate 17:25, 4 November 2008 (UTC)


Can a user recieve more than one warning a day?--Kkllnn blastoise 22:48, 6 November 2008 (UTC)

Sure, if that user appears to be ignoring the warnings. --Shiningpikablu252 22:49, 6 November 2008 (UTC)

Espeon's ☆and δ cards

Userpage Policy vs Timezone

I know your only allowed 3 edits a day, but what timezone is that. Yesterday I made 3 edits, and id like to do another 3 today. But according to the BP clock, as my 3 edits yesterday were late and I am in an earlier time zone, it looks as though I amde the edits today, even though for me they were yesterday. So id like to know, is it based on an individual users timezone or on the Bulbapedia zone? --Guardian of Earth |SGMS 2010

It is based on the Bulbapedia clock, in order to keep a universal, easy to follow rule. MaverickNate 17:22, 9 November 2008 (UTC)
The Bulbapedia clock runs on UTC time. That's the time zone that shows up in a standard signature's timestamp (one can get the time only by adding ~~~~~; for example, putting down that code at 19:43, 9 November 2008 (UTC) would show that date and time in UTC. --Shiningpikablu252 19:43, 9 November 2008 (UTC)


Do we really have to use it to link to "Bonds to the End of Time"? I really don't like that name, I wanna wait until the Japanese TCG site officially announces it as DPt2, at which point I'm going to see what else it translates as. I just really...really don't like that name. If it's the best translation, so be it. But I'm still gonna try. Cipher (Talk) 15:13, 10 November 2008 (UTC)

The Pokébeach webmaster admitted that the staff was squabbling over several other possible translations when that name was revealed, which probably means a better translation could be found. ****, said better translation could be one of the Pokébeach rejects! I'd say go for it. If "Bonds to the End of Time" was the end result of an argument by the staff of a reliable source, chances are that translation's going to get argued over elsewhere in the community. --Shiningpikablu252 16:07, 10 November 2008 (UTC)
Well, with any luck the Japanese site will announce DPt2 soon, DPt1's been out for over a month...when it does get announced, I'll take a look at the name.
On another matter, I know that Regigigas and Heatran haven't been revealed as DP30 and DP31 by anywhere like PokéBeach or the PokéGym, so just to prove it, Regigigas and Heatran. I know you're sceptical (I can tell by your edit summaries on Regigigas and Heatran) but I wouldn't make an edit like that until there was solid proof of the numbering. Cipher (Talk) 17:42, 10 November 2008 (UTC)
No, I fully believe the numbers. Did back when I made those edits. That wasn't what I said I'd probably later regret. --Shiningpikablu252 17:55, 10 November 2008 (UTC)
What was, then? I'm confused now. Cipher (Talk) 17:59, 10 November 2008 (UTC)


Okay, so I've been looking through the wanted pages, and there are links to pages in (TCG) like Hit Points, Discard pile, Prize card, Weaknes, Resistance, Retreat about a glossary page at Glossary (TCG) for the more basic terms in the TCG? A lot of TCG stubs could maybe be merged in there too. Cipher (Talk) 18:29, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

I believe such a page could work. However, I'd also get a second opinion from Maverick Nate before actually publishing such a page. --Shiningpikablu252 20:15, 11 November 2008 (UTC)
Go for it, I say. Sounds like a great idea. MaverickNate 20:16, 11 November 2008 (UTC)


What's going on? --ニョロトノ666 02:02, 12 November 2008 (UTC)

I was just out purging some inappropriate edit summaries from a few pages. Note that I'm not going to do things all at once, mind you, just gradually. Your userspace just happened to be in the designated cleanup zone; the non-tainted edits have since been restored. --Shiningpikablu252 02:07, 12 November 2008 (UTC)
Gotcha. Now I understand. For a minute I thought there had been another major vandal attack and you were going around cleaning it up. I suppose you were deleting the JohnnyRebel moves. --ニョロトノ666 17:11, 12 November 2008 (UTC)
The sockpuppets are going to be murder, I can tell you that...--Shiningpikablu252 17:13, 12 November 2008 (UTC)


Sorry. I don't really have this game. I just wanted to know all those names. Of course, I may get the game someday but not in close future and it'll probably take me a while to progress to those places. Sorry, I'm afraid I can't help here. Better ask someone who has the game. --Maxim 18:36, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

That's OK. It was worth a shot, anyway.
Of course, who knows? Some other expert might see that list and provide the info I need...--Shiningpikablu252 18:37, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

Opinion plz

Yo, wanting an opinion off you about something. I've tried to create an improved version of {{TCG Expansions}} in my sandbox in an attempt to condense the information somewhat, 'cos it's a pretty big infobox as it is. Your thoughts, opinions, suggestions and criticisms are much appreciated. Cheers! Cipher (Talk) 20:17, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

It could work, but I'd go for some second opinions on this one. --Shiningpikablu252 20:37, 13 November 2008 (UTC)
I didn't really like it, because I despise and loath show/hide. MaverickNate 20:39, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

Edit Summaries

Apologies on that, I'm on autopilot right now. I'll pay more attention to RC; I'm almost finished. -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 16:02, 15 November 2008 (UTC)

Forging the history

Why are you deleting the offensive edit summaries? Because there are kids here and they can feel scared of all those scary words? Come on, forging the history is never good. Even if it's just stupid article editing history. The pedia never was will never be a perfect place and it seems like you're pretending that it is. Not to mention you're pointlessly flooding the Recent Changes. I think it's just BAD. --Maxim 18:23, 16 November 2008 (UTC)

I wasn't the one who started this precedent of removing the offensive summaries, Jioruji Derako was. And I'm not the only one doing these kinds of purges, either.
Besides, it's not like I'm doing them all at once. THAT would create a truly pointless recent changes flood, and besides, odds are server lag'll catch up to me sooner or later. I can at least keep traffic moving if I do them in smaller chunks...--Shiningpikablu252 18:28, 16 November 2008 (UTC)
But it's stupid! It forges the history and idealizes the Pedia. But in fact the Pedia is not perfect! I DO NOT agree with that administration's decision! --Maxim 18:59, 16 November 2008 (UTC)
Generally, you only need to remove spam revisions (so that the websites that spammed links don't get any benefits back). But on rare occasion, there are some particularly nasty edits that really don't need to be there. Admins can still access them, so they're not totally deleted. But a lot of this stuff is pretty offensive, even by internet standards. >.< -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 20:04, 16 November 2008 (UTC)
You need to look harder for offensive stuff, Geo.  :D Oh, and Maxim, we do have other reasons besides the fact that it's "offensive." If all record of the content is unviewable except by admins, it discourages other vandals because they know that their crap won't even matter after its purged from the history. --ニョロトノ666 03:16, 17 November 2008 (UTC)
Ah, the last time was due to an error in judgment on my part; I forgot that if I deleted and restored the page, it wouldn't tell me if any of the revisions had been previously "purged". So I brought back a few older edits without realizing they weren't supposed to be there, apparently. (this is actually the second time I've had to deal with a move vandal like this, only the first time was on another wiki, and I had to un-move all one hundred or so pages myself. Not the best scene to wake up to.) -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 05:49, 17 November 2008 (UTC)

Sorry, but. .

There were a few times I accidently clicked 'Save Page' instead of 'Show Preview'. ShinjiLover 04:55, 17 November 2008 (UTC)

Try to be more careful, OK? --Shiningpikablu252 04:56, 17 November 2008 (UTC)
