Mienfoo trivia

Why did you remove the piece of trivia I had on Mienfoo? Is that fact not interesting enough? What quantifies a good piece of trivia? - Colaquikwelus (talk) 14:06, 23 November 2018 (UTC)

Not notable for a single species type in this case. Currently Larvesta and Volcarona are the only evolutionary pages with a trivia note about how long it takes them to evolve. They hold the longest time before evolving with Larvesta having to reach level 59 before it evolves into Volcarona. I am not GrammarFreak01 but I thought I would help answer the question. Hope my answer helped answer your question. Frozen Fennec 16:04, 23 November 2018 (UTC)
That, and the trivia was just poorly written. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 21:53, 23 November 2018 (UTC)

Ultra Rangers

Was wondering if you could give me a hand with User:BigDocFan/Ultra Rangers. I'm not sure they are worthy of receiving a character page but would like a hand just in case.--BigDocFan (talk) 11:48, 9 December 2018 (UTC)

Sure. I'll see what I can do. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 22:31, 9 December 2018 (UTC)

Vic Mignogna

Would you give me a hand with User:BigDocFan/Vic Mignogna please when you get the chance?--BigDocFan (talk) 13:40, 12 December 2018 (UTC)

Sure. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 08:52, 13 December 2018 (UTC)

Ultra Guardians Base

Me again, was wondering if you could assist me with User:BigDocFan/Ultra Guardians Base please?--BigDocFan (talk) 21:57, 13 December 2018 (UTC)

Of course! GrammarFreak01 (talk) 21:58, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
Thanks, I know I keep asking you for assistance with my pages for which I am grateful for, just hope I don't end up annoying you.--BigDocFan (talk) 21:59, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
It's alright, it's all cool. :) GrammarFreak01 (talk) 22:00, 13 December 2018 (UTC)

Battle area links

Just so you know, the Battle Frontier facilities, aside from the Battle Tower, don't have their own articles, so please use links like these: {{DL|Battle Frontier (Generation III)|Battle Factory}}. Thank you. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 09:50, 15 December 2018 (UTC)

Oh. I was only linking it that way because PS334 linked it that way in its plot summary. But I'll keep that in mind. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 01:10, 16 December 2018 (UTC)

"all of the episodes"

"all episodes" and "all of the episodes" are both grammatically correct, and normally I have no preference between them. However, on Pokémon: Heritage Collection, because there's a significant amount of text between "episodes" and "from _", the former flows much better, since it can stand on its own but the latter cannot. --SnorlaxMonster 02:47, 16 December 2018 (UTC)

I really don't see how all of the text that you're mentioning is supposed to interrupt the flow of the sentences. I read it and it all sounds fine to me, even now. Regardless, I'll change the wording of those sentences in a way that'll make both of us happy (or unhappy, depending on your stance (hopefully not)), because I really disagree with your stance and I don't think I can let that kind of wording slide. Let's see what happens. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 03:30, 16 December 2018 (UTC)
"Many episodes" is simply incorrect; it implies that it is some non-specific subset, which it isn't; it's all of the episodes except the few specifically mentioned. You cannot say it contains "many episodes, except these episodes".
What reason do you have to prefer "all of the episodes" over "all episodes"? I've given you my reason for my preference in this particular case, but you haven't mentioned yours. --SnorlaxMonster 03:41, 16 December 2018 (UTC)
Because I have absolutely never seen "all episodes" being used in a correct context. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 03:42, 16 December 2018 (UTC)
I don't know what you mean by "a correct context". All of the cases you've changed to "all of the episodes" were perfectly fine beforehand. In fact, while "all of the episodes" isn't incorrect, it borders on sounding unnatural. This article discusses it in the section "All (of) the/my/these things". --SnorlaxMonster 04:00, 16 December 2018 (UTC)

Ben Phillips

Was wondering if you could give me a hand with User:BigDocFan/Ben Phillips when you get the chance?--BigDocFan (talk) 09:45, 21 December 2018 (UTC)

Sure. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 02:16, 22 December 2018 (UTC)

Airings

I've noticed recently you've changed appear to appeared on some character pages before the episodes have actually aired. Do not do this again. That implies that the episodes have aired, which they have not. Playerking95 (talk) 09:49, 23 December 2018 (UTC)

Well, it was kind of inevitable the articles would change anyway, so what's the harm? I only took care of it a couple of hours before the airing actually occurred. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 10:13, 23 December 2018 (UTC)
It's how we do things GrammarFreak. We don't edit the articles until the episode airs, regardless of it being inevitable. It comes off as wanting to be the first one to make an edit, and considering your "have to make 10,000 edits a year" thing you have, I wouldn't be surprised if that was the case.--ForceFire 10:33, 23 December 2018 (UTC)
I never said that. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 10:34, 23 December 2018 (UTC)
Yes, you did.--ForceFire 10:37, 23 December 2018 (UTC)
How come you still remember that?! You're supposed to forget that! GrammarFreak01 (talk) 10:38, 23 December 2018 (UTC)
Because the amount of edits you make a day and that statement comes hand in hand. Whenever I see you make so many edits, I wonder if it's you trying to reach your 10,000 a year goal. I'm certain most of your edits would be borderline pointless, but you make too many edits that I just cannot be bothered checking.--ForceFire 10:44, 23 December 2018 (UTC)

James Weaver Clark

Was wondering if you could also assist me with User:BigDocFan/James Weaver Clark please?--BigDocFan (talk) 07:52, 24 December 2018 (UTC)

Sure. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 02:27, 28 December 2018 (UTC)

Edit Stalking resumed

The gaps in episode plots and other associated pages do nothing to affect the respective pages. You have been deleting only gaps on many of the plot summaries written by myself like SM102. You have already been warned about unnecessary edits, please refrain from deleting gaps as it is considered an unnecessary edit. PardescanSlowbro (talk) 03:10, 28 December 2018 (UTC)

Block

As a result of returning to your habit of making pointless edits, you have been blocked for 3 days. You have had multiple warnings about not making pointless edits and generally about making quality edits. Since you seem to have forgotten those warnings, hopefully more explicit consequences will drive the point home. If you need a reminder about what constitutes a quality edit, feel free to ask me. Tiddlywinks (talk) 03:42, 28 December 2018 (UTC)

Huh? I was just correcting some errors! GrammarFreak01 (talk) 03:56, 28 December 2018 (UTC)
Why were my edits even undone? There's supposed to be no spaces after the end of a paragraph, because there's no new sentence there. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 04:01, 28 December 2018 (UTC)
Please allow me to talk to PardescanSlowbro (talk · contribs) about this. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 04:04, 28 December 2018 (UTC)
Please? I'm freaking out here. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 04:10, 28 December 2018 (UTC)
Please? GrammarFreak01 (talk) 04:15, 28 December 2018 (UTC)

(resetting indent)Would you kindly point out the errors in the edits TiddlyWinks selected? From what I can tell, there were no errors. Also, beggin isn't going to make you get unblocked any quicker. The last time you did this, you got yourself a longer block, and I still remember the talk page section that event happened, so don't try to deny it.--ForceFire 04:46, 28 December 2018 (UTC)

The edits in question were me removing spaces that were just there at the ends of paragraphs. ([1] [2]) They seemed to be there for no reason, so I removed them. Spaces are only for separating words and sentences, and I don't see why they were left at the ends of paragraphs. Do you get what I'm saying? GrammarFreak01 (talk) 05:08, 28 December 2018 (UTC)
Also, I just realized that I'm actually blocked for three days. I thought I was blocked indefinitely, which was why I was freaking out and begging earlier. Even so, I would still like to talk this through. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 05:41, 28 December 2018 (UTC)
The point here is that the spaces after a sentence like here does not affect the article in any way other then maybe adding a bit to its size so making an edit in an atempt to fix that "error" is just superfluous and cloggs the rc for no reason. Hence why it's called pointless. --Raltseye prata med mej 16:55, 28 December 2018 (UTC)
I would still like to know why those spaces were left behind to begin with. You cannot leave a space without pressing the space bar, which leads me to assume there was something intentional with that. Unless something else is going on that I'm not informed about. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 22:32, 28 December 2018 (UTC)
Are we not going to talk about this? GrammarFreak01 (talk) 09:14, 29 December 2018 (UTC)
Why those two insignificant pieces of space were left behind is not important. Probably because the editor who put them there didn't care since it really doesn't matter anyway. Like I said, they do not affect the layout of the page in any way so why should you be bothered by them in the first place? --Raltseye prata med mej 11:51, 29 December 2018 (UTC)
Because that's something I don't see in any article ever? GrammarFreak01 (talk) 22:11, 29 December 2018 (UTC)
Go back through your talk page archives, and search for "quality" and "pointless". (And re-read those sections.) You've been warned about such edits before. As I said: hopefully this time the message will sink in. We're not interested in exceptions; we're interested in knowing that you understand and can follow what we've repeatedly asked of you. If you show you can't, like yesterday, this is what happens. Tiddlywinks (talk) 22:42, 29 December 2018 (UTC)

Hiker Trio (Alola)

Two things first, Happy New Year Grammar, secondly welcome back to Bulbapedia. I was wondering if you could give User:BigDocFan/Hiker Trio (Alola) a look over, I seem to be failing my resolution of trying not to bother you too much lol--BigDocFan (talk) 09:29, 1 January 2019 (UTC)

Sure thing. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 15:09, 1 January 2019 (UTC)

Saki Endo

Was wondering if you could give User:BigDocFan/Saki Endo a lookover. I doubt she is notable at present but might be in the future.--BigDocFan (talk) 16:37, 5 January 2019 (UTC)

Nice to have you back Grammar, could you give User:BigDocFan/Hapu's Mudsdale and User:BigDocFan/Hapu's Golurk a look as well--BigDocFan (talk) 08:44, 18 January 2019 (UTC)
Sure thing. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 09:51, 18 January 2019 (UTC)
Was wondering also if you could help with User:BigDocFan/List of Bewear rescues--BigDocFan (talk) 10:33, 18 January 2019 (UTC)
Of course. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 11:52, 18 January 2019 (UTC)
Was also wondering if you could help expand the descriptions? Sorry to be asking so much on your return--BigDocFan (talk) 13:08, 18 January 2019 (UTC)
That, I really can't help you with. I don't actually watch SM, so I don't know the exact details. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 22:22, 18 January 2019 (UTC)

Pointless edit again

Just after I'll see you come back, you're on edit stalking again, which is another behaviour that is unacceptable. Can I ask you something? Why you removed the sentences line of Rie Kugimiya, where she voiced Ida, that will return back in the upcoming SM106, that will played a role to teach Lana for the potential of her Popplio to evolve into Brionne? Which I'll considered is a major role now that you've have removed? Singaporean (talk) 10:01, 19 January 2019 (UTC)

I did not know at the time that Ida would be reappearing in SM106. My apologies. I will restore that line. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 23:02, 19 January 2019 (UTC)
