A message for the community

Greetings, Bulbapedians. I am Trom. This is my talk page. If you post a message here, I will reply here, and supply your talk page with a link here on the first occurrence in a discussion only. If I leave a message on your talk page, I will be watching it and will reply there as required. Please start all new discussions under this green box, please, by clicking on the "plus" tab above.

As for the administrator powers I now hold, I am more than happy to wield them if you so wish. I know what it's like to have stacks of edit requests, so I will be more than happy to help you there. However, I would also like to mention that while someone out there seems to think I am doing a good job, I reserve the right to completely screw up at times.

Thanks, guys. Keep up the good work, and Happy First of April.

Edit request

Nice user page you got there! ;) Since you already have it, why not update your signature? =P Just a suggestion.. Anyway, congratulations Trom! You truly deserve to be an admin. We're counting on you. =] Ҝəυzø8 11:30, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

Haha, thanks Kev. And thanks for that edit too. I'll give you the pleasure of having the top contrib for a little while longer :D Somehow I knew you'd be one of the first to start filling my talk page up :D And, no, the signature isn't going to change. I consider this discussion page to be more important in the grand scheme of things than that lousy old userpage. Alas, it was one of the many conditions of my administratorship. BTW, RexRacer was also promoted, so this is my official congratulations to him also. Yet another of our high-quality editor. — THE TROM — 11:35, 31 March 2009 (UTC)
Just don't abuse your powers Trom. You're not Mr. Big Guy in Charge okay ;).--FF(editstalk) 11:46, 31 March 2009 (UTC)
Hey hey, so you're planning to overtop me? No, no, I wont let that happen. xD lol. Congratulations to RexRacer as well.. One more thing, add this template: {{User Bulbapedia Sysop}}. As far as I know, every admins have that. Ҝəυzø8 11:48, 31 March 2009 (UTC)
Yes..... it's a bad habit I know. and finally Congrats Trom and RR.--FF(editstalk) 11:49, 31 March 2009 (UTC)


Hey Trom, could you please unprotect DP127? Its title has been revealed. And protect DP126 to avoid gunjumping. Thanks in advance, ^^ Ҝəυzø8 13:53, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

Done.... took a while to figure it out though :D Nothing like learning on the job. — THE TROM — 20:29, 1 April 2009 (UTC)


You beat me because the server exploded again last night, haha.—Loveはドコ? (talk contribs) 01:39, 2 April 2009 (UTC)


You made a (gulps) Userpage ! --Prongs (TalkContributions) 09:29, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

What, really, where? How did that get past me? Time to block the user responsible for that mess.... — THE TROM — 09:38, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
Dont try to fool me. I thought you were serious about not having a userpage. I always thought that it was a waste of your wikicode talent. Anyway congrats.Check my talk the new section .--Prongs (TalkContributions) 09:52, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for moving

It was a terrible oversight from my side. Thanks for repairing my terrible screw-up. --Maxim 08:06, 4 April 2009 (UTC)

Something Wrong

See I never went through the Manual of Style or User Space Policy but I think that thing about girlfriend (bottom column) is wrong. --Your Friend Prongs (TalkContributions) 09:57, 5 April 2009 (UTC)

She doesn't :D and that whole section is a real-piss take anyway. No offense is intended to anyone. — THE TROM — 09:58, 5 April 2009 (UTC)


Thank you for your comment on my talk page. I intend to work off my bad repuatation, I am not going to be online for long, before going into hospital for a series of operations in May, but I hope, in this short time, to change people's perceptions of me.

Congratulations on becoming an administrator, you very much deserve it because of all you hard work. from Super-Max 13:44, 5 April 2009 (UTC)

Zhe Question...

How come this doesn't work? {{DL|{{DL|In-battle effect item|Turn order alteration}}|Quick Claw}} ht14 13:21, 9 April 2009 (UTC)

Wow, that's trying too hard. Isn't it because you can't put one code in another code? Just try this: {{DL|In-battle effect item#Quick Claw|Quick Claw}} Luna Tiger * the Arc Toraph 13:38, 9 April 2009 (UTC)
...awkward purpose then... ht14 13:40, 9 April 2009 (UTC)
{{DL|In-battle effect item|Quick Claw}} works as well. It doesn't matter what level heading you use in the second variable (the "Quick Claw" part). — THE TROM — 20:05, 9 April 2009 (UTC)


Why is my page in Pages needing special attention? --Prongs (TalkContributions) 08:43, 10 April 2009 (UTC)

Someone seems to have copied and pasted template code. Here's a hint - never, ever do that because 99% of the time it stuffs things up. — THE TROM — 08:48, 10 April 2009 (UTC)


Not trying to be pushy and annoying as I know I am sometimes, but, some time ago there was a discuussion if the Badges page should get a massive asthetic change or not and you said that you would look into it. Since then there has been no answer. I'm just wondering if you forgot about it... Mr. Charlie 01:03, 12 April 2009 (UTC)

Yeah.... I did.... I have been away from my desk for the last few days so give me some time to catch up on anything more pressing, and I'll get onto it. An idea has just come to me.... — THE TROM — 05:20, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
TROM how 'bout my table?--FF(editstalk) 09:49, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, I did actually. It's pretty cool, and I like it. Need help implementing it? — THE TROM — 09:55, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
The only problem I have with mine is that it's too wide.--FF(editstalk) 09:57, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
Odd... when I resize my browser (to accommodate for a possibly smaller screensize) it auto-resizes. Try it now; I made an edit. — THE TROM — 10:02, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
Still too wide, not like it matters right. I would love the table to be in the Badge article but I wanted to see what you think. Thanks for helping anyway.--FF(editstalk) 10:09, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
Well I think that notes portion should either be renamed exceptions or we should add more info sorta " In the Anime only girls are allowed in Erika's Gym." Sorry for interfereing. --Prongs (TalkContributions) 10:15, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
@Prongs: that isn't really related to the badge article, more so the Celadon Gym article. The only thing missing from the table, as based on the current article, is the design basis. Oh! And I just realised a huge problem! All the links along the lines of Badge#Rainbow Badge won't go anywhere.... Hmmm. I have no idea what's up with that width. Try it now? — THE TROM — 10:27, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
That's because there wont be no Badge#Rainbow Badge link, All of them will just link to Badge#Indigo League. And the width is still a problem.--FF(editstalk) 10:35, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
I'm guessing that could be done by putting an if clause in [[Badge#{{{1}}} Badge|{{{1}}} Badge]]. Cool. I have no idea what's up with that link. When I put a random infobox on the page (to test wrapping skills, in a show preview) that template wrapped right around it! — THE TROM — 10:38, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
Fixed it, turns out it just needed "width=<number>px". --FF(editstalk) 10:45, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
Awesome. Now that it's narrower, we could probably put in a fifth column for design basis. Just a thought. — THE TROM — 10:47, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
Something's missing: Japanese names. Kevzo8 10:48, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
@ TROM Go for it!
@ Kevz, Can simply be put under the English name.--FF(editstalk) 10:50, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
Go look, boys. Force Fire, does it fit? — THE TROM — 10:58, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
Couldn't be any better. Now we need to do the rest, The table in my sandbox will stay incase of any new changes.--FF(editstalk) 11:43, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
Alrighty. I'll go from the bottom up then. Hopefully it won't take too long now that you've organised it! — THE TROM — 11:46, 13 April 2009 (UTC)

Gym Leaders

Have you forgotten that you protected the page? You're not touching it anymore, so I guess, it's time you unprotect it.. Kevzo8 11:16, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

Did not.... >.> <.< It was on my to-do list, yes... — THE TROM — 11:18, 14 April 2009 (UTC)
Owss.. -.- jk. Anyway, check the Archives plz. I have put a request there. Thanks in advance. ^^ Kevzo8 12:22, 14 April 2009 (UTC)


Oh the great Lord Trombonator. I present my salute to the king of Bulbapedia and *enter a dialog that will please you * Can you generously provide me your AIM screen name. * --Prongs (TalkContributions) 08:38, 18 April 2009 (UTC) Hey. --Prongs (TalkContributions) 09:28, 18 April 2009 (UTC)
