List of Pokémon with unreleased Hidden Abilities

Hi. I talked about the page with some other administrators, and we decided that we don't really want that page as List of Pokémon with released Hidden Abilities makes it unnecessary. I don't know if you saw it, but I replied to your post on the forums saying the same thing. If you would like to keep the page in your userspace (so under a name like User:Tycho/List of Pokémon with unreleased Hidden Abilities), that's fine. Since you posted the code on the forums i don't think this will be necessary, but I can give you the code if you would like to make the page in your userspace. --SnorlaxMonster 05:23, 6 May 2012 (UTC)

Oh and another thing; when you are making templates for userspace use only, they should be made in your userspace as well (so "User:Tycho/lop2/ability"). We do want to remove the Japanese names from the template anyway, but nobody has wanted to do the removing of the Japanese names from the page. --SnorlaxMonster 05:46, 6 May 2012 (UTC)
  • Thanks, didn't know templates could be in the user space, guess I learned something again. I'd done a Phantasy Star wiki before, but things weren't quite as big there. On changing the lop/ability to remove the Japanese names, I'm thinking that might break the table for the list of released Hidden Abilities, as that article reused the column for obtainment methods. But yeah, I guess for the abilities list without the Japanese you'd want the same thing then. I fixed the template now, so you can reuse that code if you want. - Tycho 07:13, 6 May 2012 (UTC)
The problem isn't editing the template (I can do that easily), it's removing all the Japanese names from List of Pokémon by Ability. --SnorlaxMonster 07:15, 6 May 2012 (UTC)
Ah, didn't know that was the issue. I made a new template (feel free to change) to remove the Japanese names from the ability list now; removing the names I did by mass-replacing the bars with tabs, pasting it into Excel to delete the undesired column, copied it back to a text-editor and replaced the tabs with bars again. If you have any similar problems, I'd be glad to help out (the same method could easily be used to add columns/parameters). Thanks again for being friendly. :D - Tycho 07:37, 6 May 2012 (UTC)
