Erica124

Hi again. I see that you are still attempting to tell Erica124 about the wrongs they are doing on Bulbapedia. However, I believe that you are wasting your time since they're not responding to your comments and are ignoring you. After seeing ForceFire's replies, I honestly think you should just leave her to the staff now since while I do praise you for attempting to stop it, your messages aren't working since they are being ignored. This isn't your fault but I think you really don't have to stop them. I would be grateful if you could reply on this matter. Thank You!! (This comment was originally on your Archive Page but was moves) Ice Cream 09:32, 26 June 2018 (UTC)

Well, what are they going to do? She's managed to circumvent another ban by not editing frequently, as Force Fire informed me. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 09:39, 26 June 2018 (UTC)
They're clearly not looking at their talk page. This means that your comments are proving to be pointless. So just to save you the hassle, since only ForceFire and other staff can deal with them, your comments (which I'm certainly not saying you shouldn't do) are not making an impact. Some people refuse to listen, regardless of persuasion. Ice Cream 09:46, 26 June 2018 (UTC)
What else am I supposed to do? GrammarFreak01 (talk) 15:56, 26 June 2018 (UTC)
I would suggest to not do anything. The more you go on about them, the less likely ForceFire will stop them. You'll just be annoying ForceFire with the repetitive comments, so I would suggest to do nothing (It doesn't leave a good impression) and let ForceFire deal with them. Don't worry, justice will be brought to them eventually. Ice Cream 17:57, 26 June 2018 (UTC)

Empty sections

Please do not add empty "Errors" sections to manga pages like here.

I'd like to also ask why you thought those empty sections should be added? Tiddlywinks (talk) 19:25, 1 July 2018 (UTC)

I remember a while back that I was removing empty sections from anime episodes, only for those edits to be undone and for me to be warned that these sections should remain. I think it was along those lines, but I don't remember the exact details of the conversation anymore and I couldn't find the discussion on my archived talk page. Anyway, after that, I even added empty section headers to several anime episode articles and those edits weren't undone, so I thought it was okay. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 19:29, 1 July 2018 (UTC)
Well, with that little information I don't know what to tell you. Except that it's not really hurting anything even if some pages have errors and some don't. Adding it is just busywork and doesn't especially improve anything. You don't need to fuss about things like that that aren't crucial. Tiddlywinks (talk) 19:57, 1 July 2018 (UTC)
If you insist. But by that logic, wouldn't the Trivia sections go as well? I notice they weren't deleted by you and Ht14 during the mass deletion. Is there supposed to be something special about them? GrammarFreak01 (talk) 19:59, 1 July 2018 (UTC)
We weren't focusing on it. It's not worth editing pages either just to change that part either way. Tiddlywinks (talk) 20:03, 1 July 2018 (UTC)
Alright, then... GrammarFreak01 (talk) 20:03, 1 July 2018 (UTC)

Editing

Hey GrammarFreak01! I was wondering if you would be interested in helping out at the Archives. See, there's a lot that needs to be organized - if you're interested, let me know here. ht14 19:49, 1 July 2018 (UTC)

My apologies, but what are the Archives? GrammarFreak01 (talk) 19:50, 1 July 2018 (UTC)
The Archives is the image repository for Bulbagarden (which includes Bulbapedia). ht14 19:51, 1 July 2018 (UTC)
Image repository, huh? Well, it depends. What exactly am I organizing? Just stuff in general? I'm not sure if I know what I'll be doing... GrammarFreak01 (talk) 19:52, 1 July 2018 (UTC)
Here you'll be adding categories to files - the intent is that someone searching for a specific image will be able to do so by navigating through categories. If you're curious to see how it looks like, navigate to the homepage and click on Archives (there's a grey bulb on it). ht14 19:56, 1 July 2018 (UTC)
Okay, I'll check it out and get back to you. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 19:57, 1 July 2018 (UTC)

Welcoming users

Hello, I see that you're welcoming users who last contributed anywhere from four years ago to nearly 11 years ago! Honestly, that's not necessary. Please only welcome users who have been recently contributing, thanks! ht14 21:45, 3 July 2018 (UTC)

Sorry, I was a little bored and didn't know what to do at the time. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 21:45, 3 July 2018 (UTC)
That is not acceptable - there are many other things to do at the wiki. If you don't know what to edit, take a break and come back to it later. ht14 21:46, 3 July 2018 (UTC)
Sorry, I'm trying to do something. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 21:47, 3 July 2018 (UTC)

Edit quality

Please remember to make quality edits when editing a page. Don't look for something to edit on a page just because you're there.

  • Adding spaces that are absolutely unnoticeable...is not a quality edit, certainly not when that's the ONLY thing you do.
  • Tweaking image sizes is also a type of edit you've been told to not do before. You've been doing this quite a bit at least recently. I'm giving you a reminder this time, but if you pick up the habit again, we may take other action.

Please remember: quality over quantity. If there's nothing worthwhile, leave it, don't push it. Tiddlywinks (talk) 22:25, 4 July 2018 (UTC)

Fine. >:( GrammarFreak01 (talk) 03:14, 5 July 2018 (UTC)

...This sort of thing is, once again, not a quality edit. It is, in fact, a very pointless edit that changes absolutely nothing.

If that is all you have to do on a page... DON'T.

I'm confused how that's so difficult a concept to grasp. If there's nothing that needs changing, leave it be. You've been told about this before, and—again—it shouldn't be difficult. I'm becoming tempted to turn to a block if you keep failing to grasp it, in order to make the point better. Tiddlywinks (talk) 18:50, 18 July 2018 (UTC)

...Um...it's pointless code. It should be removed. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 18:52, 18 July 2018 (UTC)
It changes nothing about the page's appearance. "Do. Not. Make. Pointless. Edits." We've been through exactly this issue before. Please absorb it. Tiddlywinks (talk) 18:57, 18 July 2018 (UTC)
You're making this really hard for me. If it changes nothing about the page's appearance, why is it there in the first place? It's like a vandal edit; it's useless and therefore should be removed. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 18:59, 18 July 2018 (UTC)
It's not important why it's there in the first place. What's at issue is your edits.
Leave it alone if that's all you have to do on a page. This isn't that hard. Tiddlywinks (talk) 19:07, 18 July 2018 (UTC)
Let's see what Abcboy says about it. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 21:48, 18 July 2018 (UTC)

Edit Stalking

Dear GrammarFreak01,

Understand that none of your actions are exactly covert. It is very apparent that you are stalking my edits and have been for an extended period of time. While I have requested that you stop, I am again telling you to stop. I don't like your obsession with having the current revision of a page, as noted before the pages you are editing had issues long before I bothered to look at them. You clearly have time on your hands and there are many other episode and anime based pages that require attention. If you wish to assist then that is great, but follow your own course as I've seen the pages you have edited, you are literally moving information around to achieve the latest edit. You have been warned about these kind of edits multiple times before, by myself and other users, yet you continue to ignore the warnings make pointless edits that don't really add anything to a page. The incessant comments on my user page feels like beratement and I feel that you undermine anything I do, so please do not continue such conduct.PardescanSlowbro (talk) 02:49, 24 July 2018 (UTC)

Care to give examples where my edits were absolutely unnecessary and done with malicious intent against you? As far as I'm concerned, you're still repeating a number of the same mistakes that I warned you about before, and that's what I've been rectifying. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 03:35, 24 July 2018 (UTC)

Userspage?

This is not a piece of criticism or request, but I've just been wondering if you've ever considered creating your own userspage? It'd honestly be nice to know more about you, especially since you've been here for a good while now. Could you even consider doing it at some point? --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 05:48, 24 July 2018 (UTC)

Is it a requirement? I noticed Playerking95 has been here longer than me and he doesn't have a userpage. Either way, I'll think about it, but I can't imagine making it stand out. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 05:55, 24 July 2018 (UTC)
It isn't a requirement, per say, but most users who have been here for multiple years tend to have their own userpages. And if you do end up creating one, it doesn't have to stand out. All that matters is that you yourself are satisfied with it. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 06:10, 24 July 2018 (UTC)
Well, I'll still think about it. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 06:12, 24 July 2018 (UTC)

SM083 synopsis

I'm sorry. I had been editing the episode synopsis on SM083 simultaneously with you, and I, the stubborn person I sometimes am, refused to let my efforts go unnoticed, so I overwrote your edit with my own. Feel free to make any edits you feel are necessary now. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 08:42, 28 July 2018 (UTC)

It's alright. Don't worry about it. It was actually PardescanSlowbro who was trying to do all the heavy lifting, so maybe you should notify him. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 08:43, 28 July 2018 (UTC)
Actually, I was going to do just that in my edit summary, pointing out that not ALL synopsises need a complete rewrite, but then your edit happened and I was thrown into a loop. I'm not good at adapting to sudden changes, you see. But yeah. If you still see anything fix-worthy on the page, feel free to fix it. Although I doubt there'll be a bit less of that now that I've already gone over it once. And double yeah, I think I'll notify PS at some point. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 08:55, 28 July 2018 (UTC)
Well, there probably was something in there that needed a rewrite. But I digress. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 09:10, 28 July 2018 (UTC)

Asked me to contact you

Hey you asked me to contact you regarding Save data structure in Generation I page Junebug12851 (talk) 15:47, 28 July 2018 (UTC)

No, I didn't. I just welcomed you. Unless you have a question for me, which in this case I am unable to provide a good answer for you because I have absolutely no inkling about save data structure. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 19:13, 28 July 2018 (UTC)
Ah sorry, thanks then ^_^ Junebug12851 (talk) 19:31, 28 July 2018 (UTC)
You're welcome. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 19:32, 28 July 2018 (UTC)

What did I do wrong?

GrammarFreak01, I just got your message. Would it be alright if I ask what I did wrong? All I did was edit a page, and I fixed grammar issues. The last thing I want to do is corrupt a page, and I don't feel like I did. I also think your message came out a little harsh, I'm a new user, and I read all the rules and regulations. I love this wiki, and all I want to do is improve it I'm a very hard worker, and I read the entire article, just fixing grammar problems while following the Bulbapedia rules. I looked at the page after my edits. I did not see anything wrong with the page. I worked really hard on the editing, and it hurt me when you said it was "absolutely incorrect, and that it messed up the article". Also what do you mean "Don't go around changing them." I didn't change anything on the page, I edited, which was specifically stated from you "Have fun editing here" I looked at my changes after, and I didn't see the article messed up. It was the exact same, besides my grammar changes, but the page is the same. All I'm asking for is for you to specifically say what was wrong. Please Don't just say that it was wrong, and the page was different. PLEASE BE SPECIFIC. I hope I didn't come out harsh, that's not who I am, but working 2 plus hours reading, and helping edit the page, and your comment hurt my feelings.

(FitzSimmons5423 (talk) 23:46, 29 July 2018 (UTC))

Ash's Pikachu

You need to know that you should not delete the incomplete notice that I put on that page again. The gallery is for images of every impression and that was one of them. Deleting something important is vandalism. Playerking95 (talk) 09:04, 30 July 2018 (UTC)

I apologize for that. I was actually trying to undo someone else's edits because they inserted nonexistent or incorrect templates to another section of the article. I don't know how your edit was also included, but I really do apologize for that. I wasn't trying to vandalize the article or anything. Also, I apologize for taking this long to respond; I was out on a family vacation for a few days. I hope you didn't interpret my delay in responding as something malicious. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 20:26, 3 August 2018 (UTC)

Thanks

I have to admit Grammar and spelling isn't my cup of tea so appreciate you changing things I write so it makes more sense.--BigDocFan (talk) 15:13, 9 August 2018 (UTC)

You're welcome. :) GrammarFreak01 (talk) 15:14, 9 August 2018 (UTC)

Removing episode lists of Japanese Voice Actor and Actress?

Hello, I want to ask you. Why you erase all the episode article that I have put it specially that the characters that the voice actor and actress had voiced? Is it an offends or unnecessary If so, please reply back, Thank you. Singaporean (talk) 13:02, 12 August 2018 (UTC)

I know you're asking GrammarFreak01 but personally I feel there it little point, if the voice actor voiced the character in every single episode, its not needed.--BigDocFan (talk) 14:01, 12 August 2018 (UTC)
Adding onto that, the same goes for movies. Episodes and movies only get listed on the right side of a human if the human's title is something generic like "Announcer". As for Pokemon, seeing as multiple Pokemon of the same species appear numerous times with different voice actors, they have episodes listed next to them to distinguish which Pokemon from episode that voice actor voiced. If a Pokemon only appeared once in the anime, then I guess it doesn't need an episode or movie code next to it, because only one person voices it. Playerking95 (talk) 14:47, 12 August 2018 (UTC)
What they said. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 20:37, 12 August 2018 (UTC)

Hey

Sorry about all the trouble I cause by create VA pages, just noticed that before, you create new ones though me and another member had already made them. Do you have plans on doing one for Rosie Reyes?--BigDocFan (talk) 21:14, 19 August 2018 (UTC)

It's alright. I do apologize for my increasingly agitated attitude about it as well, but I do get that way whenever it feels like my comments or advice are being ignored. Anyway, I do not have any plans for that article because I checked her filmography a short while back and it looks like she hasn't done anything outside of the Pokémon anime. Therefore, her article would've looked pathetically short and I want to avoid making VA articles like that. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 21:18, 19 August 2018 (UTC)
Eddy Lee certainly looks worthy of one in the near future, think I'll leave the VA pages to you from now one.--BigDocFan (talk) 21:20, 19 August 2018 (UTC)
It's okay, you can work on the VA pages too. I don't want to feel like I'm hogging the task of creating all the English VA articles and barring others from doing so through perceived intimidation. I just expect the work to be a bit more complete compared to what you were doing before, and for the articles to adhere to the basic rules that were laid out by Bulbapedia:Project VA. It does bug me if it feels like there are some obvious holes to fill. You get my drift? GrammarFreak01 (talk) 21:27, 19 August 2018 (UTC)
Best thing I can do with the VA pages is add what roles they voice when Lisa Ortiz gets round to sending the cast lists which will hopefully be soon when she isn't so busy.--BigDocFan (talk) 21:38, 19 August 2018 (UTC)
Okay, I guess that sounds reasonable. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 21:44, 19 August 2018 (UTC)
Any plans on giving Robby Duncan Sharpe a page, he seems worthy of one. https://myanimelist.net/people/11040/Robby_Sharpe--BigDocFan (talk) 08:50, 20 August 2018 (UTC)
Yep, he looks good to me. :) GrammarFreak01 (talk) 19:09, 20 August 2018 (UTC)
No doubt the page was better than most of my other pages to begin with.--BigDocFan (talk) 16:11, 22 August 2018 (UTC)
You still forgot a category, though. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 16:13, 22 August 2018 (UTC)

Capture

FYI you don't need to change "capture" to "catch". Both words are used with decent frequency in the games. Tiddlywinks (talk) 08:34, 24 August 2018 (UTC)

I was under the impression that "capture" is for the Pokémon Ranger games and "catch/caught" is for the core series games. I recall someone else being insistent on that terminology. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 23:50, 24 August 2018 (UTC)

Hey

Spoke to abcboy about possible mainspace articles, was wondering if you could provide a bit more assistance with User:BigDocFan/Oranguru (anime) when you get a chance. Abcboy's words were Oranguru generally seems good, but you should proofread History and re-write the second paragraph there; it's a bit rough.--BigDocFan (talk) 19:31, 25 August 2018 (UTC)

Hope you're okay with copy-and-pasting. The material at Recurring wild Pokémon in the anime looks so good to me that I think it can just be transferred. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 21:09, 25 August 2018 (UTC)
If the admin are fine with it, I am. Just tried to make it my own words. Thanks--BigDocFan (talk) 21:45, 25 August 2018 (UTC)
You're welcome. I'll try to work on it later. Have some errands to do IRL. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 21:46, 25 August 2018 (UTC)

Was wondering if you might be able to Singaporean with a few of his pages. User:Singaporean/Jun_Fukuyama--BigDocFan (talk) 10:47, 6 September 2018 (UTC)

Did you mean to say "help"? In that case, I don't think I want to do that right now. I got on his bad side very recently and he thinks I'm harassing him, so I will distance myself from his work for now, until it gets moved to the mainspace, that is. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 15:22, 6 September 2018 (UTC)

May and Max's brother

We should only add that May and Birch haven't mentioned Brendan because Norman's kids are only May and Max. May doesn't have any brother but Max in the anime. From, Sean 00:17, 6 September 2018 (UTC) - unsigned comment from PokéSean (talkcontribs)

We don't know if Brendan's appearances in the anime are actually canon or not. This all seems speculative, so I wouldn't support an inclusion of that material. Also, please leave your signature using four tildes (~). GrammarFreak01 (talk) 00:28, 6 September 2018 (UTC)

Unsigned Comments

Hi,

Don't forget to mark unsigned comments, like the one from PokéSean above, with the {{unsigned|username}} template, as per the Bulbapedia Signature Policy. I've went ahead and done that one for you.

Thanks

RotaRaichu (talk) 07:08, 10 September 2018 (UTC)

Sorry, my bad. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 17:16, 10 September 2018 (UTC)

Hi

Was wondering if you could help with my newest page for mainspacing as voice actor pages appear to be your specialty. User:BigDocFan/Ayano_Shibuya--BigDocFan (talk) 16:46, 12 September 2018 (UTC)

Sure thing. :) GrammarFreak01 (talk) 16:48, 12 September 2018 (UTC)
Thanks, learnt my lesson from the other pages, best to get it checked before mainspacing.--BigDocFan (talk) 16:57, 12 September 2018 (UTC)
That's great to know. :D GrammarFreak01 (talk) 16:58, 12 September 2018 (UTC)
Definitely easier to work with fellow members than compete so to speak--BigDocFan (talk) 19:54, 12 September 2018 (UTC)
Can't argue with that. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 22:01, 12 September 2018 (UTC)
When you get a chance, can you take a look at User:BigDocFan/Kiyomitsu_Mizuuchi.--BigDocFan (talk) 15:51, 15 September 2018 (UTC)
Of course. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 20:41, 15 September 2018 (UTC)
Thanks. Do you think they are worthy of being mainspaced yet or in the near future?--BigDocFan (talk) 20:56, 15 September 2018 (UTC)
I think so. They fulfill the requirements at Bulbapedia:Project VA. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 20:56, 15 September 2018 (UTC)
Rather pleased that two more of my pages have been mainspaced. No doubt many more to come in future.--BigDocFan (talk) 21:25, 15 September 2018 (UTC)
I see. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 21:35, 15 September 2018 (UTC)
Me again, would you mind giving User:BigDocFan/Shinya_Fukumatsu the once over and let me know if it can be mainspaced.--BigDocFan (talk) 12:02, 16 September 2018 (UTC)
Everything looks fine, save for one little polishing touch I did. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 16:32, 16 September 2018 (UTC)
Hey, thanks for your help with Hau's Dartrix, I know it hasn't appeared in Japan yet but getting things ready. No doubt my recent Japanese voice actor pages are better than they were before.--BigDocFan (talk) 16:47, 17 September 2018 (UTC)
You're welcome. :) GrammarFreak01 (talk) 01:50, 18 September 2018 (UTC)

Pointless edits, once again

There was absolutely no need for you to make this (and related) edits, absolutely no need. The page was last edited in 2009, and the change you made did not affect how the page will look. Seriously, how did you find that? No one is expected to find that sort of thing. And yes, there are inconsistencies with the captialisations of redirect links, but so what? It's not like it'll stop it from redirecting, it'll still redirect the page. It'd doesn't matter. No one will care. Leave it. You have a record of making small miniscule edits that does not affect the page. And you have been warned many times over this. If it does NOT affect how the page looks, there's no need to fuss over it. Leave it be.--ForceFire 04:03, 16 September 2018 (UTC)

Abareru-kun

Was wondering if you think Abareru-kun was worthy of a voice actor page. Had a go at doing one myself but don't feel so comfortable doing this one.--BigDocFan (talk) 14:27, 18 September 2018 (UTC)

No, doesn't look like it. Sorry. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 16:54, 18 September 2018 (UTC)
Decided from now on to leave all the voice actor pages to you, make things easier that way.--BigDocFan (talk) 20:03, 18 September 2018 (UTC)
Oh, come on, don't say that. I think you can do it. It's all just a matter of evaluating which characters actually qualify as being notable. I'd say the character would be notable if they play a major in two or more episodes. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 00:31, 19 September 2018 (UTC)
Decided to give it a go but following Force Fire's comments, decided to mainspace first and ask you to give it a look over. If it still needs work doing, it can remain on my userspace until a time it is ready. Can you take a look at my latest one? User:BigDocFan/Ryota Iwasaki--BigDocFan (talk) 21:06, 19 September 2018 (UTC)
Yeah, sure. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 02:38, 20 September 2018 (UTC)

American Gramar

Hi. After seeing your change to my edit on Guardian Deities and the change to the spelling on "Color/Colour". Is American English usually preferred when editing articles? I feel like you'd know more that I do. (I also live in the UK so it's normal to me) Cheers Ice Cream 14:58, 20 September 2018 (UTC)

I see American English here more often that UK English (forgot what that one was actually called), so I presume so. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 17:53, 20 September 2018 (UTC)

Rebecca Becker

Was wondering if you could assist me with User:BigDocFan/Rebecca Becker, I know her only confirmed role so far is Mimo but with her name appearing in other episodes without Mimo, there may come a time where she is notable enough for her own page.--BigDocFan (talk) 10:30, 21 September 2018 (UTC)
