Why does Bulbapedia take so long to view? What has to be done to fix this? --*Ɣℯⲛօӎօṫհ* 17:58, 17 April 2008 (UTC)

Did you know

whoa, these are some pretty informitive did you know facts...KPF by the way, just a 1 time little comment...KPF 03:50, 11 January 2008 (UTC)

LOL Thank you. --Theryguy512 11:44, 11 January 2008 (UTC)

What the Heck?!?!?

OK the people who talk about gltiches sound very fake. first of all,

Missingno. dude, everyone knows you lie. I used to have Blue; I caught Missingo.,'M and lowercase a and had no promblems with the game or Pokémon stats!! Graphics were a promblem but they were fixed!!!!!!!!!

second of all, Diamond boy no one likes your little fake δ♪♂×♀!!! Nobody's laughing!!

Sorry if this offends. Never mind, I hope this DOES offend you so you'll no longer lie!!!

Sorry a bout my temper to everyone else.

--Moisesmorales 23:19, 14 January 2008 (UTC)

....Was that really necessary? --Theryguy512 23:38, 14 January 2008 (UTC)
I laughed. And I'm not? offended. :p Ahahaha. Tina δ 23:42, 14 January 2008 (UTC)

Well it gets on my nerves when I have to hear about someone catching Flootenkerp , or ♫♂♥♂×♫ or Missingno. that changes the way the game is other than the graphics!!!!!! ITS ALL FAKE!!!! you have to be an idiot not to relize that. P.S. It was necessary to yell at stupid people. And again sorry you all had to read that unless you make up crap like that!! --Moisesmorales 17:41, 15 January 2008 (UTC)

I didn't even catch Missingno. and my pokemon league info is all effed up.


I have been wondering for a long time. How do you put signatures after your posts? I know you usually sign it with ~~~~, but how do you add a little Pokemon? Do you know what I am asking? Unsigned comment by Deadlymethane... yay for irony

I see. You make a signature. Actually I make signatures. I've made signatures for 8 already.PokeManiac102 22:06, 16 January 2008 (UTC)
Edit the nickname field in your Preferences and check the "Raw signatures" box. --FabuVinny T-C-S 22:09, 16 January 2008 (UTC)
Preffered Pokémon images are available at {{ani}} or {{MS}}... Tina δ 22:14, 16 January 2008 (UTC)

Do we have an official page on how to make sigs? Zurqoxn 09:20, 17 January 2008 (UTC)

I'm pretty sure Tina has a page somewhere. Glinn 09:32, 17 January 2008 (UTC)

Right here. Although with the signature policy being made, that'll give some guidelines to signature making... ;>_> Tina δ 16:28, 17 January 2008 (UTC)

Thank you for showing me. I'll make a cool little signature when I have the time. And I can't believe I forgot to sign my post. XD Test 04:31, 18 January 2008 (UTC)

OK WILL ANYBODY JOIN MY TEAM?!!?!?!? Just click here!Bulbamond TALK STUFF

I don't think advertisements are really allowed for missions. :| Tina δ 01:02, 7 February 2008 (UTC)
I agree Count Caterpie 07:57, 7 February 2008 (UTC)
Uh-huh...It's bad enough making (I learnt that the harde way) but advertising? Our license actually PREVENTS us from advertising! Ph34r4everTalk page 08:18, 7 February 2008 (UTC)

OK, I am NOT advertising, I just telling users, only Darth Cookie Monster joined!--Bulbmond 01:44, 9 February 2008 (UTC)Bulbamond TALK STUFF

Errr, that's the definite meaning of 'advertisment' Ph34r4everTalk page 01:48, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

OK....--Bulbmond 19:27, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

D/P Anime UK

Hey, shouldn't it be an event that the Diamond and Pearl anime came out on The 4th? I missed and had to watch it on YouTube! COME ONE!Sonic Pikachu RTP|1#fan

Urm well, no, not relly. I live in the UK, and it's not exactly BIG news is it? Japan = YES!! USA = Yes! Europe = yeah... 8D TESHIGIGAS 17:42, 7 February 2008 (UTC)
NOT FAIR! That's kinda being racist!Sonic Pikachu RTP|1#fan 17:50, 8 February 2008 (UTC)
Racist??!! Where did that come from? TESHIGIGAS 19:13, 8 February 2008 (UTC)
Well, no nott really. I can be 'REALLY' RANDOM AT TIMES. yOU SHOULD SEe my site, Click here. But It still isn't fair that just because this is an American site (kinda) that they only put American and Japanese events. I could have missed an important event!Sonic Pikachu RTP|1#fan 19:30, 8 February 2008 (UTC) And actually I did. I had to watch the first episode on YouTube!

Oh yeah, I didn't mean to advertise just them. It's just I can be really random at times.Sonic Pikachu RTP|1#fan 19:33, 8 February 2008 (UTC)CAROT!

Lol, 8D Randomness and kewl fun word makingness (ooh I just did one) Meh, whatever. I'll let you know when he movie comes out here! TESHIGIGAS 20:16, 8 February 2008 (UTC)

If you're talking about Bulbanews, we don't even create articles for dub titles. If anything newsworthy happens in the UK, I'll report it. --FabuVinny T-C-S 20:43, 8 February 2008 (UTC)
Thanks!Sonic Pikachu RTP|1#fan 07:42, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

Congrats you guys!

Wow, 8000's really something!

I'll admit, 2 years back, when I was much stupider than I am now, me and my friend would vandalize Bulbapedia.

I hope you'll accept my apology D:

Front Page

What's with the picture on the front page? Was it vandalizad? YinYang 1195 19:01, 13 March 2008 (UTC)

I think it was.... All I know for sure is that it's REALLY disturbingChoconeko 19:03, 13 March 2008 (UTC)

It was :@ Porygon-Z 19:05, 13 March 2008 (UTC)


Anybody notice how much vandilism there is today?-Darkmaster0 19:40, 13 March 2008 (UTC)

It's been fixed. Porygon-Z 19:42, 13 March 2008 (UTC)

But I think it is strange how much is going on today.It is the most vandilism I have seen since I joined bulbapedia.I also think it is kinda strange how many acounts have been created today.I see a connection betweeen the acounts.Darkmaster019:52, 13 March 2008 (UTC)


Of the archive is requested. Just in case someone tries to add something funny in it. OptimatumTalk|12:00 20 Mar 2008

Done. TTEchidna 05:55, 23 March 2008 (UTC)

Dot Artist

I have discovered the true purpose of the Dot Artist! And I don't believe for a minute that it was a waste of time. -Pat 04:19, 23 March 2008 (UTC)

That's great and all but uh... This is really main page stuff Count Caterpie Happy Easter 05:47, 23 March 2008 (UTC)
Hey, it's Charmander's Red/Blue backsprite!
Useless... but isn't the Pokétch in the colors that the original GB could display? Maybe move this comment thingy to the Pokétch talk page? TTEchidna 05:53, 23 March 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, true. I just wanted it to actually be seen by someone within the next six months. Plus, pretty much every other wiki uses the Main Page discussion page for general wiki-subject-related conversation. -Pat 09:34, 23 March 2008 (UTC)
Awesomeness! XD TESHIGIGAS 14:11, 23 March 2008 (UTC)


Last year someone reported on the front page that Happiny and Buizel were joining the team, so why hasn't anyone reported that Gliscor and Swinub will?

HoennMaster 07:26 PM (CST) March 23, 2008.

Because it's unconfirmed. Tina δ 00:54, 24 March 2008 (UTC)

Umm...last year it showed those two with the trainers and their other pokemon, and this year it shows Gliscor and Swinub with the trainers and pokemon. It's pretty obvious they are joining the team as Gligar is missing and a Gliscor is there.

Last year, plot-spoiling Japan was considered the norm around here. That practice was pretty much stopped when the Cacnea debacle hit, and ever since then, anything not 100% confirmed posed as such gets reverted even if evidence points to it (such as Aipom's evolution in DP060). As such, we're assuming that the Gliscor and Swinub in the previews are unrelated to the group until and unless episodes prove otherwise. This way, we avoid another incident like the Cacnea debacle. --Shiningpikablu252 03:37, 24 March 2008 (UTC)
Additionally, Happiny was shown in Brock's arms to prove it was his, and a bunch of people thought Buizel would go to Ash. So who really knows. We will see when we see, okay? TTEchidna 06:07, 24 March 2008 (UTC)


For some unknown reason, I can't edit my userpage right now. It says that I do not have permission. Can anyone explain? (I'm sure that the answer is right in front of me...-__-) --Deadlymethane

The admins are testing something again. Check MY talk pageC Is for Cookie
NO ONE CAN EDIT ANYONE'S PAGE. It's a test they are doing on the server. It'll be over soonC Is for Cookie
Any idea when "soon" is?
I'm sure that "soon" will be much longer than anybody wants to wait. --Deadlymethane
Which is usually five seconds. TTEchidna 22:35, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

Notice should be put up?

That no users can edit their pages until this testing is finished? Because I mean, well.. yeah. Everyone seems to be freaking out and not really noticing that other users have been asking the same question and are getting the same answer, but eh, that's just me. Tina δ 20:26, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, because I had posted the question on Archaic's talk page, I didn't even know everyone was having the same problem. When they do something like this, they should tell us somehow! -Theininen (I was working on my signature, but I didn't get 2 finish before the testing)

*Freaks out* :: Why can't I edit my User Page!?!?!?

(In other words, I agree.) --Deadlymethane

Fun While you wait

if you're like me, you need something to kill time Untill they let you update your user page:

this weeks is awesome. Don't miss it. Unsigned comment by Manamaster

THing is, this is all just to help us do more mainspace edits! OptimatumTalk|08:44 27 Mar 2008
There is a wealth of stuff you can do outside Bulbapedia. If editing your user page is the most important thing to you, then maybe you should look into getting a blog instead. --FabuVinny T-C-S 12:57, 27 March 2008 (UTC)
Exactly, Bulbapedia isn't a PokéBlog. It's a community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia. TESHIGIGAS 17:29, 27 March 2008 (UTC)
Yes, and this website was made so you can edit mainspace articles, not userpagesPokeManiac102 17:31, 27 March 2008 (UTC)
Exactly, Bulbapedia is a community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia for mainspace editing. (I'm going to drum this into peoples heads!) XD TESHIGIGAS 17:35, 27 March 2008 (UTC)
Take a look at my contibutions. Do you think I visit Bulbapedia just to edit the Pokémon articles? No. I like to edit my User Page more than anything. Then I whine and complain until people look at it and sign their name under the "People Who Just Wasted A Few Minutes Of Their Life" heading. --Deadlymethane
Not to mention how much of a community Bulbapedia is- there is no denying how much it helps pokemon game players meet other fans of the game for trades, battles, etc. Just because it's main purpose is to inform people about the game, dosen't mean that it shouldn't also serve as a platform to boost the quality of Pokémon gameplay. It's a community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia. Without the community its just not the same. Not to mention editing one's userspace is good practice for editing other pages. i learned all i know about code writing just messing around with my myspace, and since wiki pages use a very different code, i need some way to learn withought messing up a well-written article.
If you hit "Show Preview" instead of "Save Page", you can test coding on any page you like... just don't save it, so when you're done, it goes right back to normal. That's how I learned a lot of my coding. -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.> 07:46, 28 March 2008 (UTC)
Might I just remind everyone that we do have a dedicated forum, accessable at at, which would be a more suitable location (and less stress on the server) for the community to get together than using the User namespace.
Right now, we have a serious issue with the server that needs to be addressed, and we're doing all we can to reduce load. The excessive use of the User namespace for frivolous things that really belong on the forums, and the excessive user of templates for peoples signatures here (using templates means more database accesses, meaning more load, so please use only small non-template signatures!), while not the only problems, appear to have greatly contributed to the issue. --Archaic 00:59, 29 March 2008 (UTC)
A lot of the stuff I know about Pokémon comes from Bulba, and the rest is already posted here, so I can only really make contribs to talks at this point. A lot of people are probably in a similar situation, leading to the overwhelming Userpage edits you mentioned. (Btw, someone ask TTEchidna to see my talk, because of the stuff on that vandal on his talk, my <insert favorite @!#$%&* here> computer won't let me access it) -Theininen 02:06, 30 March 2008 (UTC)
I live in an ancient city which gives almost NO info on Pokémon (DP001 starts next week). But I can still edit, so what's your problem? Optimatum♏Talk|02:37 30 Mar 2008
My dad put on a stupid blocker, half the time it doesn't let me on the weather channel because of ads. -Theininen 02:49, 30 March 2008 (UTC)
Okay, what the fuck are you talking about? Optimatum♏Talk|02:52 30 Mar 2008
The talk about the vandal who made inappropriate edits (i think that's what it's blocking), my commputer picks up on a couple of those words and blocks it, I just wanted to talk to him about some of his Pokémon, can you edit under wher i edited before (i was using another computer) and ask him to see my talk? -Theininen 03:03, 30 March 2008 (UTC)

I think you shouldn't fight,

There's never a fight on Monday night at the Brass Dragon Saloon

Wit? 'tis absurd! Smith's Stout - not light.

Here's Part-Two: I like raw eggs,

Unable to win or lose or even play the game

stupid they've been covered with eggs

But no one ever is to blame. --Moisesmorales 17:04, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

And finally Part-Three:

What really is Bulbapedia?

you slushed blue guru

Reality is a staircase leading nowhere.

Mashed potatoes, where's the gravy baby? --Moisesmorales 17:12, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

I assume this was a poem. (you didn't follow a very good rhyme scheme) MoldyOrange 19:20, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

Hurry Up Already!!!

It's been a week! I want to fix that annoying open link on my userpage and finish it up! When can we edit them?!?!?!?!?!? -Theininen 20:27, 31 March 2008 (UTC)
