How do get your own user page?
I have edited some pages and I still can't make one.
Can you tell me how to make it or how many edits I need to do?

Generation V Egg Group data

Seeing as how it's apparently incredibly difficult to trust new users with simple tasks here, I reckoned I'd just provide you with [the data] and allow you to handle it as you see fit. —hexagonTHEORY 08:49, 13 November 2010 (UTC)

I was actually trying to get the opinions of a few other admins first, in particular for the ordering. I'll give you the honor of adding it to the page. Go ahead if you like. Werdnae (talk) 09:00, 13 November 2010 (UTC)
Ah, I was under the impression that the template automatically padded the numbers to a length of three. Either way, thank you; I shall remember that in future. —hexagonTHEORY 09:30, 13 November 2010 (UTC)
You're welcome. Most templates like that don't pad the numbers, partly because it can then be sort of spoofed for the formes and stuff. Thank you for getting it all done. Werdnae (talk) 09:36, 13 November 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, that makes sense; those alternate Pokémon can be hell. You're welcome, but I won't lie; it was mostly all perl's doing. ^_^ —hexagonTHEORY 09:40, 13 November 2010 (UTC)

PokéPark Pictures (cont.)

Hey Werdnae, look what I found. :D I asked the guy who ripped them if we could use them and he said we could. Maybe put them on the side games template or something. Like to the left of the Pad description. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 00:54, 14 November 2010 (UTC)

Werdnae, I would like to make a suggestion: I think putting the cell directly to the left of the Pad entries would be perfect, but d'you reckon you could just display the image in the actual template, then I'll just upload each of the images as PokePark001.png, etc. It seems like that would make things move far smootherly. —hexagonTHEORY 01:11, 14 November 2010 (UTC)
...well at any rate, Random Talking Bush sent all the individual images to me in PNG format to save us the trouble of cropping them all out of The Spriter's Resource. Let's decide on what we want the template to look like before deciding the file names perhaps. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 01:20, 14 November 2010 (UTC)
Haha. It positively tickles me that none of you seem to have ever heard of programmers. Nearly all popular programming languages today are perfectly suited for ripping sections of images, so that wouldn't have been a problem; still, that was quite nice of him. Regarding the template, what could possibly be more fitting than putting the image to the left of the Pad entry? —hexagonTHEORY 01:25, 14 November 2010 (UTC)
For the file names we'll go with PPW###.png with the hashes being the ndex number. That has the added advantage of meaning that the image won't need to be added to each individual page. The images are 64px square right? I've made a quick mockup using one of the MD images stretched to 64x64 pixels to give an idea of size. Werdnae (talk) 02:47, 14 November 2010 (UTC)
Alright. Yeah, they're 64x64. One final question and I'll start uploading them. The ###'s, do I use national dex or the Pokepark pad numbers? Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 02:50, 14 November 2010 (UTC)
Ndex numbers. That way it's more consistent and there's no need for an extra parameter on the template. Werdnae (talk) 02:51, 14 November 2010 (UTC)
Psst, we're all done uploading the PPW imagery; when d'you reckon they'll be displaying in the template? —hexagonTHEORY 04:33, 14 November 2010 (UTC)
How about... now. You may need to purge the cache to get it to show up on a specific page. Don't worry about manually doing them all though, the cache updates often enough on its own. Werdnae (talk) 04:55, 14 November 2010 (UTC)
Glorious. It really does look quite snazzy. I think Jo might hate me now, though... —hexagonTHEORY 05:17, 14 November 2010 (UTC)
Looks pretty good. =D In other news, I've been working on the Guardian Signs browser descriptions and I'm almost done with that as well. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 04:58, 14 November 2010 (UTC)

After getting all those icons uploaded, still think I should go ahead and upload those images I sent you via photobucket? (Sorry if it gets annoying always asking permission for everything[and for apologizing all the time], but I fear making a mistake will cost me. D:) Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 08:47, 14 November 2010 (UTC)

I'd say just hold on to them for now. We may want to use them at some point, but the icons will be enough for the moment. And don't worry too much about making mistakes - everyone makes them at some point. It's always okay for you to ask if you aren't sure though. Werdnae (talk) 09:18, 14 November 2010 (UTC)

Regarding Generation V Experience Yields...

Nearly every single Pokémon had its Experience yield modified in some way in Generation V; any ideas regarding how to get this data into the system without having to hand-modify almost 500 Pokémon pages? The only thing I could think of was a massive switch case; while it would be stupid ugly, it would get the job done much more efficiently. What do you think about the matter? —hexagonTHEORY 05:48, 14 November 2010 (UTC)

The EV yield remains the same, right? If so the new Exp. yield could potentially replace the Battle Exp. part of the infobox - that number itself is just a formula of the Base, with the box taking up the whole width for Gen IV Pokémon (or it could have a -- like the dex numbers section). Unless the new yields are mathematically related to the old ones through a single formula then there's no way to get around adding it to the pages for all 493 Pokémon that need it unfortunately. Werdnae (talk) 09:27, 14 November 2010 (UTC)
I do think that the Battle Exp. could be done away with. However, I still don't understand why it would have to be manually added; why couldn't a huge switch case be used in the template to provide the correct Exp. yield based on the National Dex number? —hexagonTHEORY 20:15, 14 November 2010 (UTC)
Huge switches (i.e. those with many outcomes) require a lot of server resources and cause stability issues. That's why templates have parameters, rather than just a pagename switcher. It also means that if, say, someone makes a mistake putting it in, people who notice can just fix it. Since high-use templates get protected (again, mainly to reduce server stress) they wouldn't be able to if it was just a template with a giant switch. Werdnae (talk) 20:24, 14 November 2010 (UTC)
Erm, the switch case would only need to take into account the parameter passed as the National Dex and then display the correct Exp. yield accordingly; that's not server-intensive at all; it doesn't have to access any other data on the server. As for being protected, why would any other user ever need to modify the template? It would be static data, would it not? —hexagonTHEORY 00:26, 15 November 2010 (UTC)
People make mistakes in entering the data, and often it won't get noticed for a while. And it's still a very big switch, as it would need 493 possibilities. Switch size for the server load is mainly determined by the number of different outcomes available, not the size of the input itself. Putting it into that template as a permanent switch like that would cause massive load on the server, and could potentially cause them to crash. Werdnae (talk) 00:50, 15 November 2010 (UTC)
I'm not sure you fully understand how the #switch functionality works on a wiki, but I'm nearly positive it doesn't require a call to the server. All it does is check a value given to it and display responses based on this value. To implement the new Exp. yields, all we would be doing is passing the ndex value, which it takes from having already been declared in the template, to a switch and displaying the corresponding number. As for people inputting incorrect data, you don't seem to have caught on to the fact that I already have this data; in fact, I've already updated the List of Pokémon by effort value yield to reflect the new numbers. I like the idea of having Bulbapedia be consistent and up-to-date with its information, and that's why I'm interested in having the new numbers put up; still, I'd like for it to be done in the most efficient way possible, and that certainly doesn't mean doing it manually. [Here] is the switch case as it would need to go up somewhere in the PokémonInfobox template. Please, I implore you, drop it in (perhaps in the Battle Exp. area like you suggested, but maybe even in the actual Exp. field if you're as interested in having Bulbapedia be accurate as I am) and see if it causes any server issues. Assuming it does, I'd be happy to set something up to do it manually; if it doesn't mess anything up, however, it will be quite a joyous occasion to be able to say that Bulbapedia is striving ever closer to completion. —hexagonTHEORY 01:15, 15 November 2010 (UTC)
I don't know the inner workings of the switch function, but what I do know is that we have been specifically told by none other than big boss Archaic that they have been determined to be problematic, and to avoid them where possible. I don't know if you were around for it, but the wiki was locked down in June as it was resulting in a 503 for about 9 out of every 10 page loads. That was largely because there used to be a switch in the roundy template, which was used everywhere. Once the switch was removed and the template broken into nine pieces as a result the issues pretty much went away. Theoretically, the switch should work fine. The servers unfortunately just aren't stable enough to have them everywhere. For the record, Bulbagarden has five servers, four of which are used for Bulbawiki (Bulbapedia, the Archives and Bulbanews). As a result I cannot and will not add that switch to the template. It will have to be a parameter. Werdnae (talk) 01:32, 15 November 2010 (UTC)

can I have a userpage? StripedRK9 00:14, 18 November 2010 (UTC)

You will be able to create your userpage once you have been a user for a certain time and have made a certain number of edits to the mainspace. Just keep contributing and you will be able to make it eventually. Werdnae (talk) 01:55, 18 November 2010 (UTC)

can you be my buddy too? Alika0303 04:54, 25 November 2010 (UTC)

If you want help, just let me know what you want. If you'd like people to chat to you'd be better off looking at the social groups on the forums. Werdnae (talk) 04:58, 25 November 2010 (UTC)

Is adopting a feature on here?

On Wikipedia itself, there's an "Adopt a user" thing. Does Bulbapedia have this too? --'Snorlax 00:56, 26 November 2010 (UTC)

No, we don't currently. If you'd like help with something I'd be happy to though. Just ask for it. Even if I can't help myself, I'll be able to direct you to a user who can. Werdnae (talk) 01:10, 26 November 2010 (UTC)

Found an offensive name!

http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Talk:Shiny_Pok%C3%A9mon Look at the first guy who's posting and how he signs his posts! Thought I'd let you know! - unsigned comment from 'Snorlax (talkcontribs)

Thanks for that. I'll probably just let it be since that user hasn't done anything since 2008, and even then only made that comment. If he/she does come back, that sig would fall foul of the signature policy (which was introduced after then), so that shouldn't be an issue either. Werdnae (talk) 02:16, 26 November 2010 (UTC)


I just uploaded Sekka City.png for Sekka City Page and it doesn't seem to be showing up PBnJamz 04:27, 27 November 2010 (UTC)

Purging the cache fixed it. If purging the cache doesn't it can be that the Archives sometimes take a while to properly sync with Bulbapedia, in which case just waiting a while will fix it. Werdnae (talk) 04:29, 27 November 2010 (UTC)


Hey Werd, can you please unprotect the M14 article? We do have a confirmation now. ♫♪AdyNiz♪♫ 11:26, 29 November 2010 (UTC)

Nate got it. Werdnae (talk) 19:20, 29 November 2010 (UTC)


About Takharii's Stuff, I shouldn't of been deleted. It is not even my site! Cool469talk 08:00, 4 December 2010 (UTC)

  1. For a fansite to get an article on Bulbapedia it must be very notable There are only a small number of sites that are notable enough for an article. All website articles should be made with permission from an admin. That site is not notable enough for an article at the current time.
  2. As you have been told before, you must not create an article on a website you are affiliated with. As you yourself admitted on the page, your website is affiliated with that website. Therefore you may not create an article on it.
  3. On a somewhat related note, you need to stop creating pages with which you can advertise your site. If you are just here to try and get more exposure for your site then I'd suggest you stop, or you may find yourself with a very, very lengthy block.
As you can see, it was deleted for a reason. It will not be restored. Werdnae (talk) 08:10, 4 December 2010 (UTC)

I'm not here to advertise my site, I'm here because I found this wiki and I love Pokémon so I joined. Cool469talk 08:13, 4 December 2010 (UTC)


Really? What is so wrong with metioning Mew the Pokémon in this page? Cool469talk 08:57, 4 December 2010 (UTC)

What is wrong with mentioning your own site on one of the most visited pages on the wiki? Does nothing in that strike you as odd? It's called advertising. And it is not allowed. If you wish to advertise your site there are plenty of places you can go to get them to put links to your site on other sites. You'll notice one thing about them all - you have to pay for it. So why should we let you advertise your site for free, hmm?
Also, please stop linking your site when you mention it in your comments. It leaves a redlink which causes it to be put on the wanted pages list, when at the moment, we do not want an article about it. Only use links like [[this]] for existing pages. Werdnae (talk) 09:07, 4 December 2010 (UTC)


Mind taking care of Gen I as well? It has the same problem. --P o L i 19:15, 6 December 2010 (UTC)

Ah, shoot. One more thing. List of items by index number (DS). I tried implementing the coding you used and formatting it to fit that page, but it screwed up the image. Ugh, I dunno what to do. Sorry to bother you, thanks again. ^^;;; --P o L i 20:21, 6 December 2010 (UTC)


Hey werdnae, ok so for bw015 there was a character chart revealing all the pokemon and humans that would appear in this episode. This chart was revealed by sunnyshore and the source he got itt from is 100% confirmed real since he actually brought the artwork. He has also said that any one who is not on the character sheet will not be in the episode. Now I posted on the talkpage of this episode asking if it is ok for me to add these people and pokemon to the page yesterday. Since then there has beenn no response so I just put them in there but posted again on the talkpage stating why I did so. About an hour later I checked back and someone had reverted the changes but there was still no answers in the talkpage. I was wondering if you could take a look at it. The character chart is on bulbagarden and serebii forums and is in the bw015 thread. Thanks before hand :)RBK 02:49, 8 December 2010 (UTC)

I've added it back in. It's kind of a shaky ground area. We like to wait for it to air, but then we're normally going off previews, which are known to troll. I don't think we've ever managed to get a character sheet like that which has an actual episode on it before. I left most of the reasoning in the relevant section that ended up on your talk page anyway, so I'm sure you already know most of this. Werdnae (talk) 04:12, 8 December 2010 (UTC)
Thanks again Werdnae :)RBK 04:29, 8 December 2010 (UTC)
No problem. Werdnae (talk) 04:33, 8 December 2010 (UTC)

Template problem

I was wondering if you can fix this template, when entering a different form it shows "Expression error: Unrecognised word" instead of the image and name. Pikiwyn talk 23:39, 9 December 2010 (UTC)

It should work now. The problem was that it was using the national dex number to determine whether there was a Pokémon there by determining whether it's value was greater than zero (which was also the default). It broke down when a letter was entered, as it can only do maths with numbers. I've removed the default from that bit and changed it so that it doesn't use a maths function. In other words, do exactly what you were doing before, and now it should work. (I hope). Werdnae (talk) 01:26, 10 December 2010 (UTC)
Yip it works now, thanks! Pikiwyn talk 10:33, 10 December 2010 (UTC)

I Have A Doubt

i want to add some sprites for multiple plasma grunts solving the multiple opponent problem for plasma grunts like the twin battles. the page said if in doubt check with admin so?--Facade11663 02:38, 12 December 2010 (UTC)

Is there like. . . a combined sprite for the tag battles, or are they just two separate sprites like in Gen IV? I haven't played BW. I believe the templates are currently set up to use two individual sprites, but if they have a single combined sprite in Gen V then we should have that instead. Werdnae (talk) 02:48, 12 December 2010 (UTC)
awesome can you point me to the two individual sprite template :)--Facade11663 02:53, 12 December 2010 (UTC)
Oh, hang on, I was thinking of the party template, which wouldn't be used for the grunts. (if you're interested though, it can be seen here) The grunts seem to just have a note that they are a double battle on their prize, as seen here, but otherwise being treated as separate trainers. Doing so also helps show which Pokémon belong to which grunt. Werdnae (talk) 03:02, 12 December 2010 (UTC)
works perfectly for it thanks.--Facade11663 03:11, 12 December 2010 (UTC)

New user

Hello again, I need help on adding usertags on my page. - unsigned comment from CharmanderKitten (talkcontribs)

Just put the name of the tag in curly brackets. For example {{user Favourite|004|Charmander|Fire}}. Also, please remember that images aren't allowed in signatures. Werdnae (talk) 08:12, 13 December 2010 (UTC)


Hello, I just needa ask, how do I edit my profile as wonderfully as others? I mean, like, about myself, what Pokemon games I play, what Pokemon I got, all these stuff. Can you help? Thanks in advance! - unsigned comment from DontDream (talkcontribs)

You'll need to make a few more edits to the mainspace (i.e. actual articles) before it will let you edit your userpage. Once you can edit it, a lot of the information people put on is contained in Usertags, so that would be a good starting point. Werdnae (talk) 09:10, 14 December 2010 (UTC)


Excuse me, how do I add Usertags to my profile? I went to the page 'Bulbapedia:Usertags' but it didn't help >_<

DontDream 12:19, 15 December 2010 (UTC)

You had it set up right, but you need to replace the {{User Usertag 1}} etc. with {{Tag name}}. The tags are all in this category. Werdnae (talk) 01:27, 16 December 2010 (UTC)


My ability to edit in the userspace has been cancelled. There are so many pages that I can start or edit like stubs or wanted articles but I know nothing about them. I've so far made three pages (P2 Lab, Sazanami Bay, and Undersea Ruins). What are some pages (like Project Locations or Pokédex) that I can help with? Please answer soon! —♫Zekasaur♫ 10:48, 17 December 2010 (UTC)

If none of these or these take your fancy, then you could try looking for places where a link template should be used but isn't and correcting that, or where there is a spelling mistake.

I've come seeking permision to upload some anime screenshots from The Mastermind of Mirage Pokémon for the article Mirage Pokémon. They depict the expanded mirage system, mirage Pokémon outside Dr. Yung's labratory and Aggron using Bullet Seed. They are just under the 320x240 limit and are saved as PNG's, the file sizes range from 105KB to 135KB. May I upload them sometime with in the next few days?--EpicShadow 05:11, 18 December 2010 (UTC)

They don't actually have to be less than 320x240. I believe our limit is 1000x1000. Don't worry about them being to small though, they're still larget than the thumbnails on the pages would be. Go ahead and upload them, but please remember to put a lowercase file extension (i.e. png not PNG). Thanks for helping to improve Bulbapedia. Werdnae (talk) 05:20, 18 December 2010 (UTC)
Just adding in, I'm not sure what you're doing with the screenshots but don't worry about any limits. Just do what you need to do. Jellotalk 05:32, 18 December 2010 (UTC)
"... but please remember to put a lowercase file extension" Would that would be under Source file name or destination file name? Sorry, I've never uploaded images before I just want to make sure I do it properly.--EpicShadow 16:08, 18 December 2010 (UTC)
The destination. It doesn't matter whether the source is lowercase or uppercase, as long as you don't change the letters. (You can't change .JPG to .png there, for example) Werdnae (talk) 01:49, 19 December 2010 (UTC)

I am wondering how you put the english poster for Master of Illusions Zoroak on the main poster side. How do I get 230 pixel posters. Please help. Pika911 02:34, 23 December 2010 (UTC)

Images used in articles must be uploaded to the Bulbagarden Archives, rather than hotlinked from other sites. At the moment we have the English poster from Pokemon.com, which is a bit small to put in the infobox IMO, so I've just added it to the gallery. In general, an image can be added to an article by typing [[File:image name.extension|thumb|right|caption|200px]], except when the image is smaller than 200px wide, in which case that bit should be left out. For infoboxes you can normally change the image parameter to the name of the image on the archives. It won't work if the image is not on the archves. Werdnae (talk) 02:48, 23 December 2010 (UTC)Pika911 03:36, 23 December 2010 (UTC) " I am still worried that my poster image that I just Uploaded will be deleted so will it still be there for the next few days. Thanks Pika911."
Your image was deleted as we already had an image of the English poster that was the same size as the one you uploaded (i.e. the same image), except yours was stolen from PokéBeach, while the existing one was not. PokéBeach cannot be used as a source for images. Nor can Serebii. Any images stolen from PokéBeach or Serebii will be deleted on sight. Werdnae (talk) 04:37, 23 December 2010 (UTC)Pika911 06:35, 23 December 2010 (UTC)" But I got my poster from Google Images since I couldn't get any png file ones please excuse me"Pika911 06:42, 23 December 2010 (UTC)
It's likely that Google Images ripped the image from PokéBeach, then. Generally, Google Images is a poor choice for searching for images, as most of the top results will be ripped from other popular fan sites. --ZestyCactus 06:59, 23 December 2010 (UTC)

Rattata Trivia

I am a little confused on one line of trivia for Rattata. Rattata has gained infamy among the fanbase due to the Youngster Joey on Route 30, and his phone calls claiming it to be within the top percentage of the species. This seems like an opionion to me, since I personally hate the beasts and I don't really know anyone who likes them myself, but when I got rid of it, my edit was reverted. What are your thoughts on the matter. (I just asked the admin that had edited last, sorry to put you on the spot). Littlmiget123 19:32, 20 December 2010 (UTC)

Personally, I'd say it's as notable as the Mudkipz meme. We do mention the Mudkip meme on Mudkip's page, so . . . I'm not sure. The Top percent is mentioned on Joey's page, but it does relate a lot to the Ratatta itself. Maybe reword it so that it's more similar to the trivia on Mudkip's page? Werdnae (talk) 20:05, 20 December 2010 (UTC)
Hell yeah top percentage Rattata are notable. What Werd said, just reword it. Jellotalk 20:54, 20 December 2010 (UTC)

Having a little trouble

Hi, I've been having trouble getting http://archives.bulbagarden.net/wiki/File:Unova_Route_1_Map.png <-- this to show up on the Unova Route 1 page, because it won't let me change the file name of the Map link on that page... could you possibly help me change this? --samm -- 09:24, 21 December 2010 (UTC)

Done. If the 'defaults' from other parameters doesn't work, use the regionmap parameter, in this case putting regionmap=Unova Route 1 Map.png Werdnae (talk) 20:48, 21 December 2010 (UTC)


Thanks for restoring those comments!--KayKay|Chat to me! 23:48, 21 December 2010 (UTC)

By the way that guy is annoying me. I've been trying to help him like I do with almost every single newcomer but he just doesn't listen. I've given him some easy rules to follow but he just ignored them and it's really getting on my nerves.--KayKay|Chat to me! 00:28, 22 December 2010 (UTC)

Transfer Machine

hello why is the Transfre Machine page up 4 deleation? i would like to know its valid info that wasnt on the site and their is no info for it i would like to know please and thank you Bdracula8 02:25, 23 December 2010 (UTC)brian sottile

Firstly, please don't sign your name on mainspace pages. Secondly, an article on the Transfer Machine should say what it does, not just how to unlock it. Thirdly, please read the Manual of Style to get an idea of the kind of thing that we are looking for in an article. That includes linking to other articles, categorizing the page, and following a similar format to other item articles. I don't have Black and White, so I don't know what the Transfer Machine does, but could it be under a different name here? We may be using a different translation to other Fansites. Werdnae (talk) 02:37, 23 December 2010 (UTC)


Hi Werdnae! I helped edit PS025, so when you have time, can you please check it for me to see if it sounds right? And also, when does an article becomes an actual article, not a stub? Are there requirements or something? I feel really stupid right now because I don't know anything about this! Please give me some tips as well! And when do you get a user page? How do sign a post? O.O I think I did it wrong... Eeveelutions! 17:04, 23 December 2010 (UTC)

Also how to you indent for new paragraphs? Eeveelutions! 19:15, 23 December 2010 (UTC)
PS025 looks good to me. As does PS052, for which you wrote the synopsis. Just remember to use the {{m}} template for moves and the preview button and you'll be sorted. There isn't really a specific list of requirements for the stub notice to be removed from an article, but generally for manga rounds/chapters and anime episodes it gets removed once the synopsis has been written. It's always okay to check if you aren't sure though. You've been signing your posts correctly, so I think you've got that sorted.
I don't know the exact number of edits required for you to create a userpage, but you could give it a go now if you like, you may have enough edits. You've certainly passed the time requirement. If it still doesn't let you, just check occasionally.
For new paragraphs in articles, standard practice is to leave a blank line (i.e. hit enter twice), which is the wikicode for a new paragraph. Indenting for replies on talk pages is done with a colon like you just did.
As for tips... If you don't know something or aren't sure of something, just ask like you have been. There's nothing wrong with it, and it's easier for us to tell you how to do it than to correct the same mistake easily. If you see some code that you don't know what it does, try copying the section of code, preview, and then remove a bit and preview again. Whatever breaks is what the bit you just removed does. Other than that, just look at what was done on similar articles and copy the style/format.
You've been doing well so far, keep it up, and thanks for helping! Werdnae (talk) 03:35, 24 December 2010 (UTC)
Oh, and you only need to link to any one article once in a section (once in the whole synopsis), which you might find makes things quicker/easier for you. Werdnae (talk) 03:37, 24 December 2010 (UTC)
Thank you so much! If I ever need help again (which I can almost guarantee I will), I'll ask! Is it okay to say that I feel good?Eeveelutions! 04:41, 29 December 2010 (UTC)
Yup, I need help. What is a userpage exactly and what do I do with it? I feel so dumb! D:
A userpage is a place for you to put information about yourself. You can put anything you like on it except what is listed here. Many users put Usertags on their page as a simple way of conveying a lot of information. Werdnae (talk) 07:42, 29 December 2010 (UTC)

Help Wanted

I need help Here, Here, Here, and Here. Thanks. --Landfish7 03:09, 28 December 2010 (UTC)

Go ahead and move Literal ghost and the grunts. I'd like a few more opinions before you move the Marowak one, as I'm not sure which of the two proposed names would be best. I took care of Bad Egg by just moving it because the talk pages needed merging too. Werdnae (talk) 04:20, 28 December 2010 (UTC)
Well, according to trom the (Trainer class) must stay but we haven't had a response on whether to add it to the end of Team Rocket/Plasma Grunt. I am unable to move Literal ghost because, for me, the "move" function isn't at the top of the page, I'm not sure if the page is protected from being moved or what else it could be. So for the grunts we need a bit more clarification maybe from someone higher up like deth, and as for Literal ghost, someone needs to rather unblock it from being moved or, whoever has the ability to move it should move it. Is that too confusing? --Landfish7 12:32, 28 December 2010 (UTC)
Hmm. Yes, it's move protected. Actually, looking at the protection reason, I think I'm missing a discussion that took place behind the scenes. I'd like to check with a couple of others when they come online before I move it. trom should get back to you about the grunts when he comes back online. Werdnae (talk) 19:43, 28 December 2010 (UTC)
Okay, thanks! --Landfish7 20:49, 28 December 2010 (UTC)
I don't know why the Team Rocket and Team Plasma grunts don't have a (tc) name already... Does anyone know the reasoning behind this? —darklordtrom 09:25, 29 December 2010 (UTC)
I suppose they were never put there. Also, since Literal ghost is under move protection maybe we can switch its content with Ghost (literal) and the respective talk pages. --Landfish7 16:11, 29 December 2010 (UTC)
I think you misunderstood what I said. I can move it, I just don't want to until I've been able to check that I'm not missing a discussion the admins had when it was protected. Werdnae (talk) 18:55, 29 December 2010 (UTC)
Okay, thanks for clearing that up. --Landfish7 22:12, 29 December 2010 (UTC)

In response to trom, yeah I think all of them should have the (Trainer class) part in order for the grunts to match the other articles, really there is no reason to NOT have the (Trainer class) part so if it's okay with everyone that means that "Team Plasma/Rocket Grunt" should have the (Tc) added; "Aqua/Magma Grunt" should be moved to "Team Aqua/Magma Grunt (Trainer class)"; And "Team Galactic (Trainer class)" can stay as is, am I correct? --Landfish7 19:51, 30 December 2010 (UTC)

Okay, I've unprotected Literal Ghost. Make sure you change the pages that link to it when you move it. Werdnae (talk) 20:27, 5 January 2011 (UTC)

More Help Wanted

I need a little more help here, here, here, and here. Thanks again. --Landfish7 02:11, 31 December 2010 (UTC)

Please and thank you. --Landfish7 17:36, 1 January 2011 (UTC)
Sorry, I'm rather busy at the moment, and I haven't had time to look at it properly yet. I'll deal with it when I get the time. Werdnae (talk) 19:40, 1 January 2011 (UTC)
Okay, thanks for letting me know. --Landfish7 19:44, 1 January 2011 (UTC)
Go ahead and move Kas to Kaz. I'd be nice if we could get a few more opinions on the glitch ones first (maybe see if there are any members of Project Glitchdex that have been active recently to get their opinions?) Super Effective Deth's responded and Skill Swap I'll try and have a look at in my games at some point. Again, make sure to change the links when you move a page. Werdnae (talk) 20:27, 5 January 2011 (UTC)


You're always up for a good challenge. My dying wish is that you make sure the Wanted pages stay clean, and try your best to get some of those things off of there sometimes. Happy editing, andrew. MaverickNate 06:29, 1 January 2011 (UTC)

I'll try my best Nate. Sorry to see you go. Good luck for your future endeavours. Werdnae (talk) 09:58, 1 January 2011 (UTC)

Webcomic Question

I tried asking a senior administrator this, but he didn't answer, should VG Cats have an article because of all the Pokémon jokes that's been in it? Pokedex493 17:37, 5 January 2011 (UTC)

Personally I'm leaning towards no at the moment. Just because it has Pokémon jokes doesn't mean that it's notable for an article - otherwise a large section of the internet would be. Werdnae (talk) 20:12, 5 January 2011 (UTC)
Oh. Okay, I know what you mean. Thanks. Pokedex493 21:08, 5 January 2011 (UTC)

Multiple Accounts

Pika911 04:44, 10 January 2011 (UTC)Hi Werdnae you know the message you sent me about multiple accounts. My younger brother wanted to create a account so I had to let him. Please excuse me.Pika911 04:44, 10 January 2011 (UTC)

That's fine if your brother wants to make an account. Werdnae (talk) 09:26, 10 January 2011 (UTC)
Okay, that account should be unblocked now. Werdnae (talk) 10:03, 10 January 2011 (UTC)


EDIT (Deleted post) I wasn't thinking. Basically, I was accusing SnorlaxMaster of manipulating his power. But then I realized I was manipulating my power. So, now I'm going to create a thread for the forums to resolve our issue. Thank you --Han Ji-Wan 01:28, 12 January 2011 (UTC)

How do get your own user page? I have edited some pages and I still can't make one. Can you tell me how to make it or how many edits I need to do? (Arceus123 03:33, 13 January 2011 (UTC))
