You do know

Images can be transparent, right? TTEchidna 22:13, 26 July 2010 (UTC)

Yes, i know that. Why are you making me this question? --Criққѳ~* 15:09, 27 July 2010 (UTC)

Sandbox

Hey there. I just wanted to give you a heads up about the userspace policy. Edits to your Sandbox count towards your Userpage edits, and your only allowed 3 of those per day. So try not to make any more edits to your Sandbox today, okay? And why not try using the preview button in the future? :P It'll help a lot. --The ωild Snoωrunt fled! 15:33, 26 August 2010 (UTC)

Oh...sorry :( I didn't remember this rule...i'm very sorry! (But, just for let you know, i use the preview button at least 1000 times a day xD) --Criққѳ~* 15:37, 26 August 2010 (UTC)
Don't worry, it's fine! As long as you remember you'll be great. :) Nice templates, by the way. And good, more people need to learn to use the preview button..xD --The ωild Snoωrunt fled! 15:40, 26 August 2010 (UTC)

Userspace limits

Hi. I noticed you have been editing the User: namespace a lot recently. Please don't do it any more, though. Bulbapedia's Userspace policy restricts the amount you can edit your userpage: no more than one edit per day. This policy was instated to prevent strain on our server, and also to promote people helping out in the mainspace. Bulbapedia is an encyclopedia, after all, so help us out by contributing to some articles before coming back to your personal userpage. The more often you edit in the mainspace, the more you will be allowed to edit your userpage. Thanks! --Den Zen 15:13, 22 July 2011 (UTC)

  • Hi! I read the new rules, i was only re-organising my userspace because it was too heavy for some users to view, so I split it! I promise I won't do it anymore :)) --Criққѳ~* 15:18, 22 July 2011 (UTC)

Using templates

I want to let you know that using templates is as a rule preferred over writing out wikicode for the same function. I noticed that you turned movegen into raw wikicode tables on some pages like Techno Blast, as well as many Gen VI moves earlier. I would say that it's better to ask and try to wait for a template to be updated before resorting to turning a template into wikicode. (Especially for pages like Techno Blast, you could very easily have asked Force Fire for Gen VII parameters given that you had just asked him to update Gen VI.)

If you're turning templates into wikicode and then asking for an update, it can be too easy to forget every page you've changed, and it can probably wait at least for a bit. You can even just preemptively add the parameters you want, before the template is updated, so you don't even have to remember which pages you need to go back to and they'll just work once an update is made.

I've added Gen VII and changed Techno Blast back. I haven't looked back at the moment to see exactly what else you may have changed like Techno Blast, but perhaps you can redo those as well. Tiddlywinks (talk) 11:19, 30 March 2018 (UTC)

Hi! I asked ForceFire to change the template to add the possibility to have more than one screenshot in one cell and he did it the other day, but it still lacked the possibility to have Gen VII cells. Two days ago I edited every "forced" templates I had inserted into the move pages to the new Movegen template, so the only wikicode ones were the ones on the Techno Blast and Weather Ball pages which had different animations. Thanks for the edit! Now it's even easier to use the template and we're ready for Gen VIII :) Have a nice day!--Criққѳ~* 11:35, 30 March 2018 (UTC)
I mean...it "lacked the possibility" to have "more than one screenshot" before, and you asked for that, there was no reason you couldn't also ask for Gen VII, especially when pages like Techno Blast needed it. That's all I'm saying. Tiddlywinks (talk) 11:40, 30 March 2018 (UTC)
I'm sorry ! --Criққѳ~* 11:56, 30 March 2018 (UTC)
