So this is my talk page...

This is where you ask me questions, tell me to do stuff, and complain about my edits. Please start every new topic in a new section at the bottom of the page, and always sign your posts. I will always reply on this page. If I have written on your talk page, please reply there. If I've promised to do something and haven't done it yet, send me a reminder. I get forgetful in my old age. —darklordtrom 22:34, 1 January 2012 (UTC)

Admin conflict

Hey trom,

Just wondering, from reading BulbaBot's talk and MAGNEDETH's talk, whats going on between MAGNEDETH and TTEchidna? (I don't mean to flame) Alebcay 20:39, 2 January 2012 (UTC)alebcay

Never mind. I think I just about figured it out. Alebcay 21:52, 2 January 2012 (UTC)alebcay

Featured content

I was wondering about featured content, do you just edit the corresponding template or does it have to go through you first? I have already offered my help on your last archive so I won't bother again. Thanks --Epsilonexus 07:34, 4 January 2012 (UTC)

Unfortunately, the templates have been locked from non-staff editing. If you message any of the staff who've been involved with this, such as Jo The Marten, SnorlaxMonster or Maverick Nate they can put it up for you. Your help is appreciated and I thought I had replied to your last message. If not, I apologise. I have just moved house and Bulbagarden hasn't been my first priority. —darklordtrom 09:39, 4 January 2012 (UTC)
Fine don't worry about not replying, is there any style (eg. your move, game on, where in the world, etc) which you would prefer (I'll write what ever's needed)? Thanks Epsilonexus 13:15, 4 January 2012 (UTC)
Do me one of each of whatever you're interested in. Thanks so much for your help. —darklordtrom 20:38, 4 January 2012 (UTC)
Great! Is it worth making a user subpage of mine (or someone else's) where I could dump a Who's that Pokémon for the entire 649, and can be used as needed. I don't have them written yet it's just I know I can after a few hours infronnt of a pc... Though if this page is created, I would probably write other stuff like Your move, and not restrict the page to one style. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. Epsilonexus 20:19, 8 January 2012 (UTC)
Best not to do these on a subpage. That way they can be more of a surprise to readers. I'll see if I can get something set up on the forums for users to submit featured content. Until then, email is the way to go (either me or one of the staff listed above). —darklordtrom 09:56, 14 January 2012 (UTC)
Okay fine. You should have a few within the next few days. Out of interest, what is your actual email, because the email user thingy on here doesn't let me attach files, and I don't want to give you an email a few miles long... Thanks Epsilonexus 10:41, 14 January 2012 (UTC)

With relation... the one on top, wouldn't it be better to manually write the date, so we can easily tell whether if something is for an upcoming day or if it's from a previous week? -tc²₆tc26- 10:30, 6 January 2012 (UTC)

I have some sort of idea for that; I'll do it tonight after work. —darklordtrom 19:13, 6 January 2012 (UTC)

Help with Site

Hello i am IceLibira and since im amazed by ur work i was wondering if u can help me with my site at this location: plzz just try to help me IceLibra 04:37, 14 January 2012 (UTC)

Sorry, I'm really busy right now with Bulbagarden, work, and the rest of my life. Good luck anyway. (PS - advertising is one of those topics you should really not do on Bulbapedia talk pages.) —darklordtrom 09:53, 14 January 2012 (UTC)

Sorry for the unsourced info...

But I still don't have enough money to go to Japan and back. Anyways, I just turned in a job application to a local university cafeteria. They say that they don't have anything for me yet, but they'll let me know. But since I can't go to work yet, I'm not making any money, except for the money in my checking account, but my parents want me to use it for paying off my school loans.

And because I can't go to Japan, I can't talk to the executive of TV Tokyo, or have an interpretor translate our conversation. Do you think you might, if you have the time? ~~LDEJRuff~~ 14 January, 2011 5:33 (UTC)

Sure, I'll put my best men to work on this vital job. I'll let you know if anything comes of it. —darklordtrom 05:14, 16 January 2012 (UTC)

Signing posts

Why are users required to sign posts with ~~ ~~? I understand the importance of seeing a time sequence, but rather than having a bunch of unsigned comments lying around, why not automatically sign comments on a talk page? - unsigned comment from Tk3141 (talkcontribs)

Firstly because not every talk page edit is a talk page comment. Sometimes it's necessary to not have the signature. Secondly, because if there are multiple active sections on a talk page and someone replies to two of them that aren't the final one, an automatic signature system would place the signature in a part of the page that is not connected to either of their comments. Thus, even if it could be done with the software (which I don't think it can), it won't be done for practicality reasons. Werdnae (talk) 03:10, 28 January 2012 (UTC)

Anime appearances template

Your suggestions are (will be) highly appreciated -- ✔Pokégeek✔ 23:18, 28 January 2012 (UTC)

Version Mascot

Oh hey, you're on. Anyway, Should I unhide the edit that I made to the version mascot page? Considering B2W2's mascots has been revealed via the boxart.--ForceFire 05:01, 13 March 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, it's a certainty now. —darklordtrom 05:33, 13 March 2012 (UTC)

Help spam

Hi, I'm Wikinezka's Administrator. On the Wikinezka there is problem associated with spam. I saw that also appeared on Bulbapedia. But you deal with it quickly. Can you advise me how can I get rid of this problem? Pawel10s 17:16, 14 March 2012 (UTC)


What happened to Jello? SONICバリヤ 23:06, 21 March 2012 (UTC)

She left. —darklordtrom 01:30, 22 March 2012 (UTC)

Pokemon Database

Hi, Magnedeth deleted Pokemon Database but he's away now so I was wondering if you'd be able to restore it please? It's a clearly notable site (, at least the 5th most popular Pokemon fansite out of ALL of them, if not 4th or 3rd. Just look at how many non-notable and dead sites there are in the fan sites category. Thanks in advance.- unsigned comment from DisgruntledGoat (talkcontribs)


Um, sorry. haven't been on for a while, but how exacally does one beat bulbabot? For from bulbabot's page apparently TTEchidna and Shiningpikablu252 beat it. Still finding an article I can edit with my limited knowledge. (I Ralts ! 22:37, 24 March 2012 (UTC))

That tag is for people who have made more total edits than Bulbabot, as seen on this list. As you can see, Bulbabot has since retaken its lead. Werdnae (talk) 23:37, 24 March 2012 (UTC)

New pages

Hello. Is it okay if I create a page about Pokémon Elite 2000 and The Pokémon World Forums? I've sent you an e-mail about this, but I'm not sure if you read it. ^^" Cooli 21:06, 27 March 2012 (UTC)

Hi, I got your email but had not yet had time to respond. You can try but make sure they're up to the quality standard of existing articles. Otherwise one of the other administrators might delete it. Perhaps you could write a draft in, say, Notepad, and then save the page when you're done. —darklordtrom 03:46, 28 March 2012 (UTC)
