Personal images

Thank you. MoldyOrange 03:10, 3 August 2008 (UTC)

I don't need any of them any more. (I uploaded them before I knew about ImageShack.) --Shiny Noctowl 01:05, 3 August 2008 (UTC)


I remember there was an actual reason, but I forgot. So I'm going to make up an arbitrary reason right now, being that owls are good hunters, and Artemis is the hunter goddess.--Loveはドコ? (talk contribs) 04:33, 6 August 2008 (UTC)


Should I have included the Koffing and Ekans he poached?--KukiTalk 19:39, 23 August 2008 (UTC)

To change the color of text, use this code:
<nowiki><font color="[color]">[text]</font>
Replace [text] with the text to have its color changed and [color] with the hexadecimal color code of the color.
Because of the signature policy, you can't have images in your signature. --Shiny Noctowl 00:00, 10 November 2008 (UTC)

How do you make a User tag?

The template you supplied was a bit complex for someone of my technelogical genius (or lack thereof), so could you please explain what goes on th 1, 2, & 3? Thanks --Zzimagination 23:03, 3 January 2009 (UTC)


Recently on the Archives, a new user signed up as User:ShinyNoctowl, your username minus a space. Just lettin' ya know.--Mew a.k.a. Prmatt11 at 03:03, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

They are the same person. MaverickNate 03:07, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
I signed up again because I forgot my password and I couldn't find the "Forgot your password?" link. --Shiny Noctowl 00:34, 30 January 2009 (UTC)

Favorite Legendary Pokemon Tag

You had your fav Legendary Pokémon as Deoxys on the template but the image was dead. Here are the templates (w/ the right images): {{User Favorite Legendary|386|Deoxys}} (Normal); {{User Favorite Legendary|386FR|Deoxys}} (Attack); {{User Favorite Legendary|386LG|Deoxys}} (Defense); {{User Favorite Legendary|386E|Deoxys}} (Speed).
You had the number as 386S so I put it as Speed Form (figuring S for speed). Sivart345 00:59, 17 March 2009 (UTC)


Why'd you remove the prerelease templates on the Rotom cards? MaverickNate 22:47, 10 May 2009 (UTC)

As of Saturday, they've been released in English (as with all Rising Rivals cards). --Shiny Noctowl 02:18, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
As of May 20, they will be released. No physical copies are anywhere yet. That is why we credit the sites we get them from so that we don't get in trouble. Got that? MaverickNate 02:27, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
Yes there are physical copies available. You could get them last Saturday and again this coming Saturday. --Shiny Noctowl 02:29, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
They are made available by pre release, not by regular release. The template shows that they are not released normally yet, and they stay on until the Release date in 10 days. Don't remove them again. MaverickNate 02:31, 11 May 2009 (UTC)

Stop right there

Do not change the possessives into "no". No in Japanese is equivalent to a 's. Leave it as it is. --ケンジガール 22:08, 7 September 2009 (UTC)

Well it's not exactly the Japanese name if part of the name is translated into English. --Shiny Noctowl 22:12, 7 September 2009 (UTC)
The point is to make an English translation of the kana that is displayed. Not romanize it. Satoshi no Pikachu is already being displayed in the kana. --ケンジガール 22:13, 7 September 2009 (UTC)
Another point I'd like to make. Did you notice that Japanese titles of anime titles? According to you, we would have to title DP144 Dungeon Kouryaku!? Tanima no Hatsudensho! instead of Dungeon Capture!? The Valley Powerplant!. --ケンジガール 22:47, 7 September 2009 (UTC)

Japanese exclusive cards

Have all movie references in their Japanese name. I find it quite shocking you thing a Japanese logo is and English one. Pay attention to what things actually say before you try to edit. MaverickNate 21:10, 6 November 2009 (UTC)


Please categorize the articles you are making/revamping. Thanks :) CuboneKing 02:58, 26 June 2010 (UTC)

Tea Party of Oblivia

When I played through the game, Axe was left room, traps and ditto. Right room was Magic with a giant crobat, who trapped the Ukulele Pichu in a box. Edward was top room, who had a regigigas. When he three were defeated, a sign opened up next to Panema and Dress was in a room with Mewtwo. Then Purple Eye stole the suit and there was a rematch.

This is what I saw in the game. I know that I shouldn't question others, but did I play a different version of he game or are you wrong? (I'm sort if this is insulting and I'm not being sarcasic).

My articles were based on: Axe is アックス Magic is マジック Edward is エドワード and Dress is ドレス. --~Sparen of Iría~ 01:22, 27 June 2010 (UTC)


Versions are not at just Pokémon X (and Y) anymore. Use the {{game}} template. Also, NO ITALICS. You want them italic, they're separately titled. Not Black and White, but Black and White. Either way that's not our style. So don't italicize the titles of games. TTEchidna 02:39, 27 June 2010 (UTC)


You're really funny. If there is anything obvious here, then it's obvious that Cheren is not a villain. Just look at her. Pokemon villains don't look like that. I don't even see a possibility of her being a villain. It's impossible. I'd quicker believe that she's a Frontier Brain. Also, I don't see why it's "so obvious" that the place isn't a Gym. A rundown-looking Gym isn't beyond the realm of possibility. You should just stop acting like your every unreasoned word was law. --Maxim 17:59, 27 June 2010 (UTC)

Edit warring

Please stop edit warring over Bel's name. Edit warring is a blockable offense, and keep in mind that the page you were editing is in someone else's userspace- if it's in there, they technically can do whatever the hell they want with the page. Thanks. ▫▫ティナ 01:27, 14 July 2010 (UTC)

The userspace policy specifically says that there are instances in which you may edit another user's page. --Shiny Noctowl 01:30, 14 July 2010 (UTC)
This isn't one of them. You can edit people's pages to fix broken links/images, but that's pretty much it. ▫▫ティナ 01:32, 14 July 2010 (UTC)


Don't move pages without a proper discussion on the talk page first, that is their purpose. --Psyライダー 19:43, 16 July 2010 (UTC)

I looked on the talk page, and it seemed like TTE had already generated consensus to move the page. --Shiny Noctowl 19:44, 16 July 2010 (UTC)
Netkun Website uses "Platinum" as official romanization. That's why we keep the page at that name. Hopefully, Chuang Yi will name her Platina and we'll be done. But you never know. --Maxim 19:57, 16 July 2010 (UTC)
"It seemed like" isn't good enough, and as far as I know, TTE doesn't do manga. Perhaps consulting Project Manga's leader and/or it's members would have been preferred before doing such a move. Jello 20:00, 16 July 2010 (UTC)
Netkun also uses Daiamond. --Shiny Noctowl 02:27, 17 July 2010 (UTC)

The hell, dude?

Seriously. One, you do not delete the text of a page, only to copy and paste it on another. That's why it was move protected. So that no one would have the smartass idea of moving things around before they were ready.

We have a plan of what to do already. We will put it in place when more is known about Isshu's routes. But until then, leave it be. There's a reason why we createprotect the new Pokémon we get and make the pages in the userspace. It's so they don't suck. TTEchidna 02:58, 21 July 2010 (UTC)

Red links break things

Please don't link to pages that don't (and won't, at least for a while) exist. It would be appreciated if you'd take the time to fix up this subpage so that you don't fill up the list of WantedPages. —darklordtrom 03:50, 21 July 2010 (UTC)


I know that the monobook can't let you preview certain things, but it's still in the userspace and you have made over 16 edits within the last half hour. So this your first (and last) warning about editing the userspacesince editing it too much causes the server to suffer. Thanks, --CoolPikachu! 22:54, 21 July 2010 (UTC)

Your current block

Hi Shiny Noctowl. Just setting a few things straight regarding your current block:

  • Edit warring is not acceptable. You've been here longer than me, and you've already received a block about this before including many other recent warnings. You should understand that this is not okay, and even if you are discussing it on a talk page, you should not continue reverting other editors.
  • Your attitude regarding other issues hasn't been appreciated. This is specifically regarding the mini tantrum you threw over Isshu, moving other pages, and your monobook. The sitenotice (big green thing at the top of every page) explains the situation regarding new articles, and the userspace policy should be expressively clear about the amount of times you can edit your userpage in a given time frame.
  • Please have some respect for the staff. We're not all out to get you as you insinuated on the forums. If a Project Leader speaks out against you regarding an area which she runs, or a Junior Admin advises says edit warring is bad, or a member of the Editorial Board tells you not to do something, don't go and do it anyway. That's just bad manners.

When you return from your block, we look forward to working with you productively. Enjoy this chance to step away. —darklordtrom 23:56, 23 July 2010 (UTC)

Talk pages

Please do not spam the talk pages with similar message, the person who will access the page will understand and there is no need to type the same message on different pages. Thanks, --CoolPikachu! 03:49, 31 July 2010 (UTC)


This template, along with its subtemplates seem to only be used on your pages, and you created them. Since it is a personal template, you should move it to your userspace rather than leaving it in the templatespace. It is not needed in any mainspace Bulbapedia projects. --SnorlaxMonster 05:05, 15 December 2010 (UTC)
