Talk pages and dates

Hi Desukaan563, and welcome to Bulbapedia. When writing on talk pages, please make sure to check the date of the comment you are replying to. In this case, the original comment was left in 2007 (three years ago) and has likely been resolved already. As a general rule, we do not reply to comments more than six months old. For more information, see our talk page policy. Happy editing. —darklordtrom 06:06, 4 November 2010 (UTC)


While it's true that there are 649 species of Pokémon, the sentence says "the other ### species of Pokémon", meaning all others besides Mew, which would be 648.--Cold (talk)

Autoconfirmed and Usertags

I'll answer this here because some users get emails when their talk page is edited. You become autoconfirmed after making a number of mainspace edits and a certain time since you registered. I can't tell you the exact limits, just keep going with what you've already done. Custom usertags can be made by saving the code as a subpage in your userspace (i.e. at User:Desukaan563/whatever). You could start (once you are able to) by using an existing usertag as a base. Just remember to remove the category from it before you save. More information on usertags can be found here.

Could you please change the color of your signature? That yellow is hard to read, and it hurts my eyes. >_< --AndyPKMN 12:28, 7 November 2010 (UTC)

'K. Liked yellow though 'cause it matches Desukaan's color scheme, but tan will do I guess. Desukaan563, with a Pokedex of +385 (talk) 12:37, 7 November 2010 (UTC)

Just updated it again thanks to GTS: ----Desukaan563, with a Pokedex of +400 (talk) 08:08, 10 November 2010 (UTC)

A minor quibble with your signature

Hi Desukaan. This is terribly minor, but a rule is a rule. Signatures are meant to be 80 characters or less; yours is currently 95. If you could shrink it down, that would be swell. Nice userpage by the way - even though my prized Tyranitar is "virtually worthless". :D —darklordtrom 09:17, 17 November 2010 (UTC)

Got it! Oh, sorry about Tyranitar, but don't pay attention to accessorized value,as it is not that important, but I'll bet his normal value is fin. Besides, only event guys are super rare, plus legends are more valuable, but you could ignore that, and drop the value scale by 50 points for each ranking. It's mainly used for legendary, plus you could drop the bonuses and drop each rating on the scale by 50. Oh, I am having trouble designing my page, but I will figure it out... maybe ----Desukaan563's userpage has a Value Formula to measure Pokémon worth (talk) 10:04, 17 November 2010 (UTC) Oh, how long is my signature now (I keep counting but losing track)???

Microsoft Word says 76. You're in the clear. —darklordtrom 05:19, 18 November 2010 (UTC)

Great! I made a few minor updates with the value system. Hope this makes me famous over Pokémon fandom! ----Desukaan563's userpage has a Value Formula to measure Pokémon worth (talk) 05:40, 18 November 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 three edits 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! --たかはり 11:33, 19 November 2010 (UTC)

Talk Page Comments

Removing talk page comments, including the initial welcome template, is prohibited per Bulbapedia's talk page policy. Please do not remove any comments in the future. If you wish to clean old comments away, you should archive your talk page instead. Thank you! ----rockersk08 04:01, 25 November 2010 (UTC)

"Breaking the wiki"

Hi Desukaan. On your user page, you've been edit warring with people (including myself) and adding back links to pages that do not exist. Please do not link to made-up trainer classes or locations, as these go on the list of wanted pages. This list should be kept for valid pages only. You will have to use real pages, or alt-text links like the location link is now doing. If you continue to revert these changes, you may be put in the 'abuse' usergroup, and you will not be able to edit your page at all. —darklordtrom 21:50, 29 November 2010 (UTC)

'k. Hey is there a way for me to link to a trainer class, but have a different name, cause i am having trouble deciding which trainer class to use. Oh, and it keeps changing my location to pokemon world, though my actual location link is supposed to be Mt. Silver. Could u make a thing for userpages that show how many edits you've made that day (and have them correspond to time zones cause i am in asia right now). ----Desukaan563's userpage has a Value Formula to measure Pokémon worth (talk) 03:20, 30 November 2010 (UTC)

There you go You've already made 5 edits which is 2 too many. We go by server time. So, if the server says you made 5 edits on November 29th, then you made 5 edits and have gone over the limit of 3. Jellotalk 03:58, 30 November 2010 (UTC)
Remember the clock at the top by your username is server time, so you can compare that to your time to figure out the difference. Werdnae (talk) 04:03, 30 November 2010 (UTC)
Oh, I created a page for DS download play, but it is a stub i am afraid (there's not much to write, only one page that i know of links to it). Am i allowed to put the stub tag on it, or is that for admins only? Oh, one more thing, i still don't understand the archive your talk page thing. Where do i move it? ----Desukaan563's userpage has a Value Formula to measure Pokémon worth (talk) 04:09, 30 November 2010 (UTC)
Wait never mind that stub thing. It got deleted for being to short (even for a stub). ----Desukaan563's userpage has a Value Formula to measure Pokémon worth (talk) 04:13, 30 November 2010 (UTC)
You can theoretically move it anywhere you want provided it stays in your user talkspace. Most people go for something simple like User talk:Desukaan563/Archive1 Werdnae (talk) 04:46, 30 November 2010 (UTC)
Wait, so i create a page, move this to it? Is that how lots of people have so many pages like sandbox, etc.? ----Desukaan563's userpage has a Value Formula to measure Pokémon worth (talk) 06:22, 30 November 2010 (UTC)
Follow these instructionsdarklordtrom 06:25, 30 November 2010 (UTC)
OK. It doesn't link to my userpage, though, but i think i did it right... ----Desukaan563's userpage has a Value Formula to measure Pokémon worth (talk) 06:44, 30 November 2010 (UTC)
Yep. Don't forget to change the redirect left behind when you move it to a regular link though. ;) Werdnae (talk) 06:49, 30 November 2010 (UTC)
What do u mean? ----Desukaan563's userpage has a Value Formula to measure Pokémon worth (talk) 06:55, 30 November 2010 (UTC)
When you move a page it leaves behind a redirect. This is so when a page in the mainspace is moved people going to the old location are automatically taken to the right place. If you archive your page but don't change the redirect, people will end up here instead of your talk page. So it'd be like you never archived it. Werdnae (talk) 07:05, 30 November 2010 (UTC)
How? ----Desukaan563's userpage has a Value Formula to measure Pokémon worth (talk) 07:41, 30 November 2010 (UTC)
How do you change it? When you've moved the page and it says "This page has been moved to that page. A redirect has been created." click on the link leading back to the original page, which is set up to not follow the redirect. Then edit it as normal to remove the #REDIRECT and the redirect will go away. Werdnae (talk) 07:57, 30 November 2010 (UTC)
OK, now do i copy everything on this page and paste it back on the original, and delete the comments i don't like back here? ----Desukaan563's userpage has a Value Formula to measure Pokémon worth (talk) 08:01, 30 November 2010 (UTC)
Now you just start using your talk page instead of an archive. New comments go on your talk page. And no, you cannot delete comments from an archive either. This page can just stay as it is. Werdnae (talk) 08:15, 30 November 2010 (UTC)
Now I get it. Thanks! ----Desukaan563's userpage has a Value Formula to measure Pokémon worth (talk) 08:38, 30 November 2010 (UTC)


I tryed to create a usertag but it didn't work. I did evrything right, i thought. Why didn't it work? {{User Template |This user suspects that the "Dark Hero" in M14 will be |Zekrom (Pokémon) |Zekrom. |644.png |Dark |White |Dark |White }}

it makes this: |This user suspects that the "Dark Hero" in M14 will be |Zekrom (Pokémon) |Zekrom. |644.png |Dark |White |Dark |White }} Plz help!!! ----Desukaan563's userpage has a Value Formula to measure Pokémon worth (talk) 04:38, 30 November 2010 (UTC)

It works fine actually, but it won't show up on talk pages. Jellotalk 04:45, 30 November 2010 (UTC)

I put it on my page and clicked preview, but it just made this long thing:

Why?----Desukaan563's userpage has a Value Formula to measure Pokémon worth (talk) 06:40, 30 November 2010 (UTC)

Remove the newlines. It needs to all be on the same line. (i.e. copy the code from this page without going to the editing pane) Werdnae (talk) 06:49, 30 November 2010 (UTC)
I ended up getting the text "?Dark Hero?" through all this programming (if u want it on your page)
644.png ?Dark Hero?

Hey, how do i make it into a template like User Template/User Dark Hero 644 ? Plz help!!Desukaan563's userpage has a Value Formula to measure Pokémon worth (talk) 11:47, 30 November 2010 (UTC)
