Template changes

I would appreciate it if you consult others before changing templates. The changes you made to {{Accessory}} will look baaad once we reach the ones with really big images. --electAbuzzzz 19:49, 10 May 2010 (UTC)

Moving images

I noticed you moved the other console logos, so can you move a:File:Nintendo GameCube logo.png too. I would post this on the archives, but it's locked. --SnorlaxMonster 12:49, 18 May 2010 (UTC)

Why are you adding "moz..." back?

You are inserting "{{#switch:{{{moz|yes}}}|yes=|no=}}" into places I'm implementing {{roundy}}. Why? What's the use of this switch? --Rafaelluik 06:57, 4 June 2010 (UTC)

Not everyone wants it circular/curvy. Change it to {{#switch:{{{moz|yes}}}|yes={{roundy}}|no=}}, not just roundy itself. tc²₆tc26 06:59, 4 June 2010 (UTC)
Sorry, but all the pages where administrators implements {{roundy}} doesn't include the switch... --Rafaelluik 07:03, 4 June 2010 (UTC)
Even so. When the admins placed moz there before, I added the switch and they were fine with it. tc²₆tc26 07:05, 4 June 2010 (UTC)
People does use the switch to define if the want it rounded or not? How can they do this? - unsigned comment from Rafaelluik (talkcontribs)
Example: {{User Arceus|moz=no}}, as seen on my userpage. tc²₆tc26 07:15, 4 June 2010 (UTC)
I get it, I'll keep the switch if there's any from now on. I'll review some editions also, but I can't guarantee I'll bring all them back. - unsigned comment from Rafaelluik (talkcontribs)
Don't worry, I can help in placing them back. And don't forget to sign :D tc²₆tc26 07:19, 4 June 2010 (UTC)
But... why bother? If you've got a browser that doesn't support roundycorners, why de-roundy the templates? The rest of the wiki's roundy anyway, so soon enough, we might as well just program it into the userbox class... TTEchidna 07:20, 4 June 2010 (UTC)
Oops, thanks! --Rafaelluik 07:20, 4 June 2010 (UTC)
It's not de-roundy-ing them. It's just adding an option to those who don't want it round. Roundy is still default. tc²₆tc26 07:22, 4 June 2010 (UTC)


Delete Unable to battle because there is such article a the Faint article Slipknot Darkrai 12:16, 4 June 2010 (UTC)

I'm an admin on Bulbanews and the Archives, but not here. tc²₆tc26 12:19, 4 June 2010 (UTC)

I see. Well thats still cool. Slipknot Darkrai 12:20, 4 June 2010 (UTC)

You has lyrics...

Where did you get them from I wanna hear the song NOW!! Takharii ~ Talk! 11:55, 5 June 2010 (UTC)

YouTube. Search the song/season and view by upload. It's sung by a male this time. tc²₆tc26 11:58, 5 June 2010 (UTC)
Have you got an exact URL? Takharii ~ Talk! 12:02, 5 June 2010 (UTC)
More or less. Sort by upload date. I don't want to give an exact link to a video that will most likely be deleted. tc²₆tc26 12:04, 5 June 2010 (UTC)

And in other news....

You can now edit your own protected pages :) Couple of guidelines here though - ATM steer well away of highly used templates because of server issues. If you want to create new templates, do them in the userspace first. All cool? —darklordtrom 11:27, 26 June 2010 (UTC)


Welcome to the Junior Administration team! -Sketch 11:31, 26 June 2010 (UTC)

Random. Thanks guys! tc²₆tc26 11:49, 26 June 2010 (UTC)


Don't change roundy to roundytop roundybottom. The template itself will be fixed soon enough. So... yeah. Stop it. --Darkeiya talk to me! 01:29, 27 June 2010 (UTC)




Question about the images you've changed..

Quick question; I've noticed you've changed a few of the hi-res images I uploaded so they're darker. Did you edit them in PS, and if so, how? was it Brightness/Contrast? Soft Light? Just want to know so I can upload efficiently in the future.--Cubic Question 04:47, 12 July 2010 (UTC)

I think it was because of the video I used to take the pictures. I didn't edit the colors. tc²₆tc26 11:41, 13 July 2010 (UTC)

I'm going to bed now but before I do here's a lesson in spelling and grammar

Its = belonging to it

It's = it is

English is screwing us over there with the apostrophes, but that's how it's done. I'm sure you knew that all along though. —darklordtrom 11:43, 22 July 2010 (UTC)

I know. Sorry, kinda rushing these things. tc²₆tc26 11:46, 22 July 2010 (UTC)

How many...

Characters have this move chart on their Pokemon pages? Like Paul and Ursula? -Sketch 19:32, 25 July 2010 (UTC)

I did Paul, Barry, Conway. A guy did Ursula. That's all I know. tc²₆tc26 10:14, 26 July 2010 (UTC)


I can't figure out exactly what you did there, but can you undo whatever made the title section so damn tall? It's wasteful. Thanks. --electAbuzzzz 14:48, 6 August 2010 (UTC)

Hey tc

Get AIM or somehow reach contact with Rex ASAP. ht14 19:36, 5 September 2010 (UTC)

You have AIM, don't you? If you do, give me your SN. ht14 04:00, 2 October 2010 (UTC)
Here. tc²₆tc26 04:09, 2 October 2010 (UTC)


Hey TC, I know you're not a senior admin but still I want an admin's suggestion/approval. Can I move this article now? It's almost ready. ♫♪AdyNiz♪♫ 11:12, 30 September 2010 (UTC)

Besides the pics, a bit of grammar and the "caught at N/A," it's fine with me. I don't think I have much of a say though. tc²₆tc26 11:16, 30 September 2010 (UTC)
Ok, thanks. I'll try fix it soon then I'll move it. Thanks again for the help. ♫♪AdyNiz♪♫ 11:18, 30 September 2010 (UTC)


Is it possible for make you requests about uploading some images? Because in case the answer is yes, I woul have several request right here ready to be launched. Just let me know what do you say, thanks. --FinnishPokéFan92 14:10, 3 October 2010 (UTC)

Sorry couldn't reply asap, but it's fine with me if you still need them. tc²₆tc26 14:23, 3 October 2010 (UTC)
Thanks. Now, there are many bad quality pics in Bulbapedia that should be replaced with better ones, but even worse problem is a missing image, and that's why I'm starting with that one. Okay, and here we go:

That's all I can name for that problem category at the moment. Hope that isn't too much. I'll take contact again with that bad quality -category in mind after you've done with these. See ya! :) --FinnishPokéFan92 11:47, 4 October 2010 (UTC)

Thanks. It would be nice if you uploaded those Pikachu pics. --FinnishPokéFan92 18:30, 2 November 2010 (UTC)

Jessie's Starmie

Could you add a picture for Jessie's Starmie? DoTheWave 15:35, 3 October 2010 (UTC)


Season-changing time stuff?

Is Morning 3 AM to 10 AM in summer, and Day 10 AM to 9 PM? And otherwise the same as Gen IV? Or does winter go an hour shorter on each side? TTEchidna 19:48, 7 October 2010 (UTC)


Sorry about the conflict, I didn't spot that edit summary and thought, that as the table was unhidden you had finished. I was trying to change the names to make them more direct translations of 机(つくえ) and 本棚(ほんだな), which mean desk and bookshelf. If 'shelf' was meant it would be just 棚(たな). By the way, which file was that castle in? The image placed where it looked to me like the large pic would be, just shows the Red-roofed house again. Bluesun 10:36, 8 November 2010 (UTC)

Never mind, I found it, it's with a Pokemon Sunday logo in 204thumb. I guess it's for the "Celeblity" stuff in the coding seeing as it gets superimposed with the logo. Bluesun 10:39, 8 November 2010 (UTC)

Your userspace items

I went through your userspace, looking for items to add to my template, and found a couple, but also found a lot of things that were either outdated or already incorporated. I deleted these pages, and was just informing you that if you wanted to keep any of them, that I will gladly restore them. Keep up the good work, a lot of your templates are amazing. MaverickNate 17:14, 8 November 2010 (UTC)

Wondercard formatting

Is there a good reason why sc needs to be kept? If anything, can we just edit the older Wondercards so that the text shows up properly? Wondercards are not, and will never be in ALL-CAPS. --Turtwig Lover 03:00, 15 December 2010 (UTC)

M13 trivia

Hey tc, the trivia in the article says that all the Sinnoh gym leaders appeared then what about those unknown badges which Barry and Nando have? Since they're unknown, they must belong to some other leaders in the Sinnoh region which are unknown as of yet (kind of stupid, but no body knows). So, shall we change that trivia a bit? ♫♪AdyNiz♪♫ 10:13, 18 December 2010 (UTC)

Dream World areas

The Pokéwalker areas got disambiguation because some Japanese names were shared with other things, but there is no such problem here. If there is no need for the disambiguation on ANY page that uses it, then it should not be used at all. If even one page needed it, it could be used for consistency, but in this case it is what categories are for. The Pokéwalker areas should not have the disambiguation either, as none of them need it; I have been trying to get them removed. --SnorlaxMonster 12:17, 19 December 2010 (UTC)

I was there when the PokéWalker thing was decided. It's for consistency, especially for template use. The same thing is why I placed that on the Dream World pages. It will also prevent moving in the future. tc²₆tc26 12:20, 19 December 2010 (UTC)
But there isn't anything to be consistent with. All it's doing is adding categories in the title. There are no pages there that need it. We don't have Pallet Town (location) or even Pallet Town (Kanto). Anyway, the pages will need to be moved when we get English names, so you aren't avoiding moving anything. If just one DW area had a name the same as something else, there would be a reason to add the disambiguation, but there isn't. --SnorlaxMonster 12:33, 19 December 2010 (UTC)

Template Usage

Your User page looks amazing!! Is it okay if I use your user page design with a few adjustments? Arceus97 22:35, 6 January 2011 (UTC)


Hey, uh... you need any help in moving the sprites in Archives? I can help you with that. But we'd need to revert what you did for a minute if we want to avoid server sync issues. Masatoshitalk 12:55, 21 April 2011 (UTC)

splitting the event Pokémon by region.

That's all fine and dandy, but you have hundreds of pages to relink and you haven't started for about half a month. Anything that linked to an event now links to a disambiguation page, and that is very bad. You may want to get a group together and partition the work, but try your best to get it done. Maybe devote the last part of May to fixing it. MaverickNate 02:03, 10 May 2011 (UTC)

Yeah, kinda plan to, but had school-related stuff first. tc²₆tc26 09:28, 10 May 2011 (UTC)

Anime templates?

Any idea what happened to them? They're stretched out on my screen, which hasn't happened before. Littlmiget123 02:08, 13 May 2011 (UTC)

What template(s)? tc²₆tc26 02:14, 13 May 2011 (UTC)
The moveset templates on each of the move pages. They stretch across the screen of my computer, which didn't happen before. I just remembered you said you created them, so I figured I'd ask you. Is it just my computer? Littlmiget123 02:18, 13 May 2011 (UTC)
Adyniz touched something just recently. Should be fine now. tc²₆tc26 02:26, 13 May 2011 (UTC)
Thank you. :D Littlmiget123 14:09, 13 May 2011 (UTC)

Edit summary

I know that you are well aware of our policies and code of conduct but still, that was not a polite way to talk to someone, specially to a staff member. There is a thing called "forgetfulness" which was the same case here. So, no need to rub it in and be cool. Have a nice day ahead :) ♫♪エイディニズ♪♫ 11:01, 26 May 2011 (UTC)

Look. I thought someone else did it - someone I remembered using Japanese names after a recent episode aired (episode 30-something). It was not really meant to offend. I used it kinda jokingly, but when I'm tired, my humor kinda goes a little... Anyways, sorry. tc²₆tc26 11:57, 26 May 2011 (UTC)
Alright. I understand. It's hard sometimes to get an accurate reading of what someone's tone of voice was over the internet. But yeah, I've done the Japanese instead of English name thing before. Typically because, after watching the episode in Japanese, I'm still sort of in my "Japanese mode" and so I'll still use Japanese names. :P But anyway, we're cool. Live and let live. Thanks for understanding. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 12:47, 26 May 2011 (UTC)


Hey bud, can you translate (or romanize) the lyrics if possible? Online translators are no good. Thanks 8) ♫♪エイディニズ♪♫ 12:19, 15 July 2011 (UTC)

I would have if I could, but I can't really understand Japanese :D tc²₆tc26 23:04, 16 July 2011 (UTC)
Oh, no problemo. ♫♪エイディニズ♪♫ 03:52, 17 July 2011 (UTC)


hey dude, your signature breaks line formatting (the first bit is too high) which is against the rules. gotta tweak that. -- MAGNEDETH 05:58, 9 August 2011 (UTC)

You'd think that with me using that sig for years/over a year now that someone would have told me. Should be good now though. -tc²₆tc26- 10:05, 9 August 2011 (UTC)
just means youve been slipping under the radar. you have finally been brought to justice. -- MAGNEDETH 21:28, 9 August 2011 (UTC)

About move templates.

Hello. I saw your adding of the Fusion Bolt move in its respective page. I noticed you made a few mistakes. First, you're supposed to put a brief description of the move at the top of the template. (I added that as "The user fires a sphere of electricity at the opponent") Second, you're supposed to use the user and user1 to name the Pokemon (and also to name the Pokemon instead of simply putting its species). Look, I'm extremely bad at explaining things. So, if you could, could you compare your edit to mine and see the things I changed. Sorry if this sounds insulting, I'm just terrible at this kind of stuff. If you can, could you also edit the other ones you did to make them fit? Ataro 01:46, 30 August 2011 (UTC)

I know how the template works. I did make it after all. :) In a later update, I made it so that "user" no longer needed to be added. User1 only, but this one was to be used to avoid things like "(movie 14)" or "(anime)" being seen. The gen= part was meant for moves with multiple variations depending on the Pokémon. Being a signature move and all, adding it is somewhat redundant. Lastly, exp=yes was meant for long ones, like Hyper Beam. :) -tc²₆tc26- 02:15, 30 August 2011 (UTC)

New templates

Could I get you, before you put your new templates into use, to make a test page of them and get someone else to look it over please? It's something I'd like done before any new templates get put into use from now on, just because templates need an extra level of care because of the way they propagate errors. Thanks. Werdnae (talk) 08:51, 29 September 2011 (UTC)

Sure, starting next time. The template I made is very similar to a previous template already in use. Hope you understand. :) -tc²₆tc26- 09:08, 29 September 2011 (UTC)
Every template redesign Tc. Every single one. Do it in your userspace first, make a test page and get at least one other person, preferably and admin, to look at it. Admins can merge it into the existing page, so that's no excuse. Arguably it's more important for templates that are in use, because both the template and the pages it is used on can and do get cached. That method was good enough for TTE when he was EiC, so I don't see why it's a problem for you. Werdnae (talk) 23:17, 13 October 2011 (UTC)
Woah. Hey. Hi there. Official order. All templates should be checked by (other) staff members before they get published and used. —darklordtrom 00:44, 31 December 2011 (UTC)

Pic needed!

Can you help get the icon of the Ice Cream Scoop? The one with the stickiness/scoop (out of 5) on the bottom right corner? We could do something similar to Pokéthlon. =) Seeing as you're able to replace my mediocre images, I'm sure this will be an easy task. =P ht14 14:57, 29 September 2011 (UTC)

Which do you mean, the stars or the patterns? I could get the patterns (but not this exact moment given my current time), not sure about the stars. -tc²₆tc26- 15:13, 29 September 2011 (UTC)
The stars... what do you mean by the patterns? ht14 15:34, 29 September 2011 (UTC)


Hey Tc, is there any other possible way to contact you? * ♫♪エイディニズ♪♫ 07:27, 2 October 2011 (UTC)

tc26x on either AIM or Yahoo! Messenger, though there are better odds of reaching me here, 'news or Yahoo! :) -tc²₆tc26- 08:10, 2 October 2011 (UTC)

GL PAL availability

It's not really PAL, but rather Europe. For example while Munna is available everywhere, Zoroark is NA+EU-only, however they're currently represented similarly. Places like Australia just miss out on all region exclusives, for example. Also, Nintendo are beginning to do country-specific promotions, Mamoswine is France-only and there are more coming I hear. Bluesun 16:45, 12 October 2011 (UTC)

Just made it PAL really since I haven't seen Australians complaining the way I see Canadians do. I'll try to fix it without having to make things to big. Thanks for the heads up! -tc²₆tc26- 07:38, 13 October 2011 (UTC)
Us Oceaneans have got used to being completely shafted when it comes to that kind of thing. That's why we're not so vocal in our complaints. Werdnae (talk) 18:45, 13 October 2011 (UTC)

New Décor!!

I know you love uploading awesome pics. xD Go to DW promotions, PW = NPWINTER I believe. The catalogue's called Winter Catalogue 2011. Questions? Shoot. :D ht14 06:31, 18 November 2011 (UTC)


Now that the mini-games are linked, how do you list Pokémon that can be befriended through more than one mini-game? "[[List of Pokémon Dream World mini-games#Pokémon Seek Ice Cream Scoop|Pokémon Seek Ice Cream Scoop]]" (Windswept Sky Hoppip) doesn't look pretty... ~Enervation 03:22, 20 November 2011 (UTC)
