City/town maps

Hey. I just saw your map over at One Island (town) and I think it looks great. This goes along with a point I made at Bulbapedia talk:Project Cities and Towns (which is now active, BTW), in which I think all of the city maps, including the old GSC ones that already exist, should be replaced with new ones based on your new route maps. Do you think that you'd be up for a task like that? --TMF T - C 05:05, 31 August 2006 (UTC)

Yes. I'll be able to do those as soon as I finish with the ones for all of the routes. And that means doing the articles for the routes, too. It might take a little while though, since I'm starting college next week and need to get settled in, but I'm sure I'll have all of the images ready by the end of the year at the latest. Especially since, hey, I get out for winter break on Thanksgiving.
That, and these ones'll be a whole lot easier, as I'm not animating them. And there's a lot less than the number of routes. Tom Temprotran 05:19, 31 August 2006 (UTC)
One more comment: when you do get to them (no rush), if you could upload them in the format "(Area name) map.png" (or .gif, etc.) (so, for Goldenrod City, it'd be "Goldenrod City map.png", One Island would be "One Island map.png"), that'd be great. It'd make the coding for the infobox much more easier and would also allow us to automatically add the maps to the infobox without having to edit every article. --TMF T - C 19:24, 1 September 2006 (UTC)
Sure thing. Now to just make the articles for the Sevii Cities. Tom Temprotran 19:27, 1 September 2006 (UTC)

Excessive categorisation

I don't think creating categories that contain only one article is appropriate. - 振霖T 04:52, 26 October 2006 (UTC)

Its arguable if we even need categories for evolution methods, but if you're going to do it, at least make it more broad: IE - Pokemon that evolve by leveling up with a move, instead of one category for Aipom. Or Pokemon that evolve by leveling up in locations instead of breaking all those up into different categories (especially since I'm sure the Tengan mountains won't be the only place to trigger those evolutions in future generations). --Zeta 06:51, 26 October 2006 (UTC)

True... I guess I'll do that then. Tom Temprotran 07:18, 26 October 2006 (UTC)


Hey! Thanks for the hand with the abilities! Gambler 06:43, 7 November 2006 (UTC)

Right! I'm working on an Excel database right now to control the lists, I think I have some mistakes right now. Also most D/P is not incorporated. I was thinking, how about if for Dual Ab we add below the PKMN the other ability those can have? Gambler 07:40, 7 November 2006 (UTC)
Hm... Possibly. We'd have to make it so it's not confusing, though. Tom Temprotran 07:42, 7 November 2006 (UTC)
Great idea for the teams! I was thinking of doing that. But maybe centered and in only one line would look better, don't you think? Gambler 03:35, 22 November 2006 (UTC)
If we could get the point and stuff across like that, certainly. But I dunno, gimme an example. Tom Temprotran 03:42, 22 November 2006 (UTC)
Something like this:
Level Gender Level Gender Level Gender Level Gender Level Gender Level Gender
Hold Item Hold Item Hold Item Hold Item Hold Item Hold Item
Move 1 Move 1 Move 1 Move 1 Move 1 Move 1
Move 2 Move 2 Move 2 Move 2 Move 2 Move 2
Move 3 Move 3 Move 3 Move 3 Move 3 Move 3
Move 4 Move 4 Move 4 Move 4 Move 4 Move 4

Here it's a little big, but maybe a template can do the work.Gambler 04:00, 22 November 2006 (UTC)

Looks pretty awesome. I say go for it. Tom Temprotran 04:20, 22 November 2006 (UTC)


No probelm, I'm glad that my little "discovery" can help Bulbapedia community. I just happen to like helping the communities that I belong to. :) --Cipher Admin Ein (Talk with Master Ein) (Ein Files) 12:14, 5 December 2006 (UTC)

Good, we like people who like helping. =D --Pie 14:43, 5 December 2006 (UTC)

User tags

Kinda surprised you made 'em - I was waiting for some feedback first on those because of the number. Anyway, though, you know user tags are usually best kept in a userbox, done a la <div class="userbox">? Just thought it might be a good idea to start telling people about that since there's many more of 'em now... --Pie 14:43, 5 December 2006 (UTC)

Wait, no, you didn't make those, Taylor did. Okay, I'm being dumb, sorry. I need to get more sleep. --Pie 18:17, 5 December 2006 (UTC)
Yeah ya do. Of course, I do too. Don't worry, though, the weekend'll be here soon. Tom Temprotran 01:48, 6 December 2006 (UTC)

I'm back!

Hey. I finally got things straightened out, more or less, over at Wikipedia, so I should have more free time to work with. The only problem is that I'm now a bit out of the loop on what's going on/what's happened here over the past two months. If you could give me an update, that'd be great. --TMF Let's Go Mets - Stats 01:23, 12 December 2006 (UTC)

Shiny Pokémon

Hey. Thanks a lot for making that page. I tried making it once, but I just ain´t that good on doing it. After all, I am new in this stuff. Yukushi wisdom 18:43, 29 December 2006 (UTC)

Yeah, sometimes you need to get used to it first... Don't worry, it'll all fall into place eventually. Tom Temprotran 08:19, 30 December 2006 (UTC)


There are spurious | m) | and | kg) |s appearing in your wikicode... - 振霖T 14:40, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

Where at? Tom Temprotran 20:30, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

Templates for Stadium & Stadium 2

Hello again. Noticed you added Stadium & Stadium 2 to your page. So I thought I could do a template for those. Yeah, I know. I THOUGHT I COULD. But it's hard, man! Can you help me out here?! (They're erased now.) - Yukushi wisdom 13:09, 27 January 2007 (UTC)

How exactly do you mean? Like for the various tournaments? Or just my sort of game-thing? Tom Temprotran 06:16, 28 January 2007 (UTC)
No I was just talking about a template page for stadium player/users. Just like Template:User Emerald, get it? Sorry I was unclear. Yukushi wisdom 19:26, 29 January 2007 (UTC)
Ah, one of those! That's Template:User Stadium and Template:User Stadium 2. Just made 'em. Tom Temprotran 20:28, 29 January 2007 (UTC)
Dude, you're the best. Thank you, thank you, thank you. By the way, where did you get the Mewtwo image?

Ummmm... Internet? Tom Temprotran 11:57, 31 January 2007 (UTC)

Merging pages

The correct way to merge pages is to delete one of the pages to be merged (preferably the newer one or the one with fewer page views), rename the other to the deleted page, restore the deleted revisions, then rename again if required. - 振霖T 03:56, 17 February 2007 (UTC)

Ah, all right. I'll make sure to do that next time. Tom Temprotran 03:58, 17 February 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for the welcome and the help!

Hi, i'm new in all this wikipedia stuff so i think this is the way to make a comment (jajaja), here we go ... Thank you VERY much for correct the articles that i made, i speak english well but when i have to write it ... ¬¬ ... xD ... Lets say that i have some problems with the verbs. Thanks for the tips too ! ... See ya

PS: I have to put my signature in every article i made??

--Blizzard 23:56, 17 February 2007 (UTC)

No, don't put your signature in the articles you make. That's a bad idea. Put it on talk pages only. You'll know which ones those are. They're... well, like this one.
And it's sort of the opposite for me. I can type Spanish well, but when I get to speaking, I get all tied up. Tom Temprotran 01:04, 18 February 2007 (UTC)
Jajaja, ok, thanks for the tips--Blizzard 01:42, 18 February 2007 (UTC)
