Mainspace articles

Created a few articles for possible mainspacing, was wondering if you could take a look at my page and tell me if any are ready for it?--BigDocFan (talk) 16:48, 20 May 2018 (UTC)

Your talk archive

I'd like to point out that there are multiple unresolved concerns presented at User talk:Kogoro/8#Template:MoveInfobox. Nescientist (talk) 09:34, 26 May 2018 (UTC)

Usage of the word "native"

Hello. I noticed that you and the other chiefs of staff have ruled that the term "natives" should absolutely not be used on the "Biology" section of the Raichu article, and I was redirected to you by Abcboy for further discussion on the matter. It was an issue that PardescanSlowbro raised out of concerns that the word is inherently offensive and incidentally racist to people of indigenous descent, a viewpoint that I and Force Fire highly disagreed with because the word was being used in an entirely non-offensive context. I'm not going to argue against your ruling because you all apparently reached this ruling with a reasoning that had nothing to do with concerns of incidental racism. But I am now curious as to whether your ruling will apply to all other articles that use the word "native(s)" in some way or form, or even phrases like "native to" or something along those lines. I hope it won't, because I feel doing so would be a silly overreaction, but I digress.

Hope to hear from you about the matter soon. Thanks! GrammarFreak01 (talk) 05:10, 3 July 2018 (UTC)

Why is Shipping allowed?

Hello Kogoro, I was wondering, why is shipping allowed on this encyclopedia? There is almost no fact behind it, a lot of the time it claims that "shippers" have noticed something that suggests that 10 year olds should be in a relationship, but never cites it. Why not just have one article that merely acknowledgeds its existence but doesn't promote fan theories that should be left on web fourms. If this speculation is allowed then many other fan theories should be by this logic be allowed.Great Bear (talk) 23:47, 16 September 2018 (UTC)

Sea Cottage Bill's Secret Garden rumours - edit war with ForceFire

Hi Kogoro. I recently added information regarding the Bill's Secret Garden rumour to the Sea Cottage page, one of the most notorious Pokémon rumours of all time. After doing so, ForceFire removed it without adequate discussion, claiming that it lacked appropriate notability. I have provided a wealth of sources on the talk page attesting to the spread and notoriety of the rumour, including many well-known sites which compare the Secret Garden rumour to the truck and Mewthree. I requested a second opinion from Dennou as I felt ForceFire was behaving in an authoritarian manner, but I'm now contacting you because ForceFire is continuing to remove this information without engaging in discussion. I find this deeply troubling, as this disregard for regular users and rejection of accountability is bound to have a negative effect on the wiki as a whole. --Poppy :3 14:54, 20 November 2018 (UTC)

As a follow-up, ForceFire has inappropriately issued a warning for edit warring, despite it being him who is engaging in edit warring. I have at all points sought discussion, whereas he has ignored my comments and provided extremely tardy accounts for his actions. --Poppy :3 15:00, 20 November 2018 (UTC)
Additionally, ForceFire has removed the evidence I have provided on the talk page for the Sea Cottage page, contrary to the talk page policy. I believe it would be appropriate for him to recuse himself from this matter. --Poppy Appletree 15:32, 20 November 2018 (UTC)

I'm pretty sure I'm doing this title and stuff in the wrong place

SeeYaLater (talk) 16:17, 3 December 2018 (UTC) Erm... So, I edited a few of bulbapedia page (not sure if my edits still are there, though, I'm sure of one), and I still can't edit my userpage thing.

Ermm... Thank you...


Hello, why is there profanity allowed in some of the userboxes? I find it extremely off putting and unnecessary. Especially for someone like an admin to use it. Nekohappi2 (talk) 05:08, 17 December 2018 (UTC)

Could you elaborate? --Raltseye prata med mej 11:25, 17 December 2018 (UTC)
They must be talking about how Kogoro has the f-word and the s-word in templates on her user page. Kikugi (talk) 11:51, 17 December 2018 (UTC)
