Welcome to my talk page! Post here if you need to contact me for any reason.

I've created a new template to replace the User Piplup one you created. Instead, I'd recommend you use this one: {{User Starter|393|Piplup}}. That way, the template is available for everyone, and not those who just started with Piplup. I really liked your idea for a template, but if we had one for Piplup, we'd have to have one for the eleven other starters. I hope you understand. --PAK Man Talk 03:44, 13 August 2007 (UTC)

Second person

Don't use the second person pronouns like "you" and "your". It's bad style to talk to readers. TTEchidna 16:51, 16 August 2007 (UTC)

Which article did I do that in? --Shiny Noctowl 18:06, 16 August 2007 (UTC)

Battle CD, I think - Jonah 20:12, 16 August 2007 (UTC)

Okay. I usually manage to catch my second person writing. I'll be more careful in the future. --Shiny Noctowl 21:35, 16 August 2007 (UTC)

Candidates for speedy deletion

If a page is a candidate for speedy deletion, you shouldn't remove the tag declaring it such without good reason. The article in question, Hack, was declared because its entire premise was not notable. There was no reason to change the {{delete}} tag to a {{stub}} tag.

Additionally, stub tags go at the bottom of the page, not at the top. --Shiningpikablu252 18:31, 21 August 2007 (UTC)

What do you mean, "its entire premise was not notable"? --Shiny Noctowl 18:33, 21 August 2007 (UTC)
The article is basically about stuff that requires ROMs to do. ROMs are illegal, no matter what the ROM sites say (that so-called 24-hour rule is bull****). Making hacks requires use of ROMs. This makes the premise of hacks unfit to be considered notable on Bulbapedia. If we were to consider Hack notable, we'd also have to consider stuff such as AdvanceMap and Pokémon Quartz notable as well, and doing so would cause Bulbapedia to become a mess. --Shiningpikablu252 18:38, 21 August 2007 (UTC)


Why did you bring the fanfiction trash back to JailShipping article? --Maxim 15:19, 22 August 2007 (UTC)

I didn't realize until later that it was fanfiction. --Shiny Noctowl 16:14, 22 August 2007 (UTC)
No problem. --Maxim 16:30, 22 August 2007 (UTC)


Someone on Boon Island does mention Ragecandybars (although they add one unnecessary space--the person says "Rage Candybars"), but that mention is that the shop is sold out. Not only does the Ragecandybar not sold at the shop in FireRed and LeafGreen, it's not even programmed into any Generation III or Generation IV game. Trust me, I checked the shop, no Ragecandybar.

Granted, the shop does sell something crunchy, but that item's the Lava Cookie. --Shiningpikablu252 17:40, 25 August 2007 (UTC)

Oh yeah. I remember now. --Shiny Noctowl 17:42, 25 August 2007 (UTC)


Okay, to get one of those cool signatures like I have with the formatting and all, first you gotta go to "my preferences" in the upper-right corner of any page. The first tab is "User profile". Under "nickname" just put in the raw coding for what you want (I put in '''[[User:TTEchidna|<span style="color:#FF0000;">T</span>]][[User talk:TTEchidna|<span style="color:#FF0000;">T</span>]][[wp:Echidna|<span style="color:#FF0000;">E</span><span style="color:#0000FF;">chidna</span>]]''' for mine) and make sure that the box next to "Raw signatures (without automatic link)" is checked. Then, every time you put in four tildes, you'll get whatever you entered into that box, plus the date and time of the edit in which you added it.

All I gotta ask, though, is that you don't just use my signature with a tiny bit of alteration, making it look something like ShinyNoctowl. I like being the only one with the red/blue links. However, I can help you to design something. If you're interested, drop me a message on my talk page. TTEchidna 23:18, 25 August 2007 (UTC)


Responded on my talk page. TTEchidna 23:59, 29 August 2007 (UTC)

Thanks. --Shiny Noctowl Find the secret page! The oboe is the best instrument ever! 00:21, 30 August 2007 (UTC)


Categories need to be categorized as well. --PAK Man Talk 12:42, 30 August 2007 (UTC)
