Silver's Feraligatr

If the page was titled Silver's Feraligatr, then why was all the information about a Typlosion??? You obviously just copyied and pasted information. Please do not do that again. Thank you. --Theryguy512 23:59, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

Well please only make pages if you have the information to complete it, not just for the pride and purpose of making a page. We focus on quality, NOT quantity. --Theryguy512 00:07, 21 February 2009 (UTC)
I wasnt making it for the "Pride" of making a page. I wanted to help. I just realized I was making a mistake after it happened. --Blake 00:16, 21 February 2009 (UTC)
Well you were essentially making it for the purpose of making it, basically. That's why the Preview button is always helpful!~ ~ overgrownsol 00:18, 21 February 2009 (UTC)
The Preview button should be used after all edits, just to make sure that no mistakes or errors are made. --Theryguy512 00:19, 21 February 2009 (UTC)
Guys, he was only trying to help. Don't be so critical. I know he could have made the page better, but seriously, cool down a bit. MaverickNate 00:35, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

Categorizing Pages

Please, only put pages into categories that EXIST. Don't just make up categories and assume that there is one when there isn't. --Theryguy512 00:26, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

I was making a category. There was every gym category ecxept for Orange Island Gyms. So I thought I would make it. Can you give me a good reason why there shouldnt be one? --Blake 00:27, 21 February 2009 (UTC)
Orange gyms is a horrible name, it could also mean the gyms are colored orange. At least fix that, please. The Dark Fiddler - 10% Satisfaction Guaranteed! 00:29, 21 February 2009 (UTC)
Then change the name of the category? You dont have to remove a perfectly good idea. --Blake 00:30, 21 February 2009 (UTC)
That's what The Dark Fiddler said by "At least fix that, please." ~ overgrownsol 00:32, 21 February 2009 (UTC)


Don't mean to be harsh but it was HORRIBLE. LINK TEMPLATES, GRAMMAR. WHAT DO THEY TEACH YOU IN HIGH SCHOOL? *calms down* Anyway, next time, use link templates and proper grammar, kay?ΘρtιmαtumTalk 03:54, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

Ok. Thanks for reminding me about the {p|pokemon} thing. I will do that from now on. --Blake 03:57, 21 February 2009 (UTC)
And {{m|movename}} too. Don't forget~ ΘρtιmαtumTalk 03:58, 21 February 2009 (UTC)


You've been trying really hard as a new user. Just so you know, your edits are appreciated, even if it seems like people are yelling at you all the time. Sometimes it takes tough love. They want you to get better, because you are editing really well for someone new to this wiki, and they want you to be an awesome user. Just remember the couple rules said above, and hopefully, your future contributions will be fantastic. ;) MaverickNate 04:01, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

Thanks. I am trying not to take anything anybody says too seriously. I have been on the internet for years though. I can take people yelling at me like I am a noob. xD Wiki code is sort of hard to learn but its sinking in slowly. --Blake 04:04, 21 February 2009 (UTC)


I noticed you have been editing the User: namespace a lot today. You may not be aware of this, but Bulbapedia has a Userspace policy that asks users to try and minimize the number of Userspace edits they make in a short period of time. Instead of making multiple edits, why not use the Preview button (Alt + Shift + P) located right next to the edit button to look at your page and see how it is coming? That way, your page can look great while staying within the required amount of edits. Just wait until tomorrow, ok? Thanks! --The Dark Fiddler - 10% Satisfaction Guaranteed! 17:59, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

It isn't really that big of a deal, because you are making some good contributions to the mainspace. However, if you are going to start mass-producing the Special rounds, maybe you could wait until you have made a few before updating your page? --RexRacer -talk 18:15, 21 February 2009 (UTC)
Thanks, I diddnt notice that "Minor edits" counted on the toll. Isnt 3 in a day kind of small? Maybe 3 per hour and only 10 total in a day. I see that it would be a problem as it clutters the "Recently Changed" page but 3 is not alot for a whole day. --Blake 18:26, 21 February 2009 (UTC)
It isn't 3 a day anymore, there isn't even an exact limit. It used to be 3 a day, and most active users don't even edit daily. Heck, some don't even edit weekly. I'm sure 3/4 a day is very fair. The Dark Fiddler - 10% Satisfaction Guaranteed! 18:29, 21 February 2009 (UTC)
Generally, if someone edits 6+ times in an hour or two, they get the warning. Don't worry too much about this, Blake, but do remember to wait until the server passes midnight (about five and a half hours of waiting) to make another userspace edit. --RexRacer -talk 18:33, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

Hei, uhm..

Just letting you know that we don't welcome those users who has unacceptable users, like the one with "Naked" in its username. We should wait for an admin to do something to that guy... Thank you. Ҝəυzø8 14:30, 23 February 2009 (UTC)


It's pikawitchu

Im so totally sorry about editing so much, i didn't check my talk page. I accept the punishment, please forgive me. :(

Major events

I understand that, but I've seen it to be done this way in maybe all cases when Ash has battled in Gyms of Sinnoh. What's with them? --FinnishPokéFan92 14:55, 15 March 2009 (UTC)

Book template

You can take out the category:books when you add it in. I made it so that having the template on the page calls the category automatically. —darklordtrom 21:47, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

Well, I just finished puting it on those 15ish pages. Maybe take it off the template? --Blake Talk·Edits 21:49, 3 August 2009 (UTC)
No, it's more efficient this way. It doesn't cause anything negative to have it their twice, but it isn't needed. —darklordtrom 21:50, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

Talk:Blue (Special)

Do you want me to reply here, or are you watching my talk page? There is a reply there now, I prefer to keep conversations on one page. --LaprasBoi 17:21, 10 November 2009 (UTC)
