Background

Buckle your seat belts and clear your cache! What's that? Yup, there's a new background on the wiki. This background is to represent Pokémon Black and White and was made by our very own Crimsonnavy. Instead of the old background having a solid color and three different Pokémon, this background has a gradient from black to white and has Hilda and Hilbert in it. Are you seeing the old background? There's a simple fix to that and that is clearly your cache, if you need help with that, follow these instructions:

Firefox: Reload or Shift + Reload
Mozilla: click Reload (or Ctrl-R)
IE / Opera: Ctrl-F5
Safari: Cmd-R
Konqueror: Ctrl-R

Emotes

Additionally, Special:Chat now has Emotes. We're currently working to make emotes of all the Pokémon, but since there's quite a lot of Pokémon, it does take a while. To use these emotes, just type in (pokémonname) and the emote will come out as a sprite. To view the emotes, check out MediaWiki:Emoticons to see a list of all of them. Currently, we have emotes all the way up to Exploud, but there's still some way to go!

Just type in (mudkip) and it will come out like so: 258.png

Just type in (zekrom) and it will come out like so: 644.png

Don't forget to update the wiki-navigation and community corner! :) Bermuda • Triangle • 02:56,9/19/2011

Why am I not allowed to place things in the additional section? Technology Wizard · talk

Because, much like a blog, you wouldn't edit it to add something in. – zzi 10:52, September 19, 2011 (UTC)
Yeah but it says that admins will be updating it, so I just wanted to announce something, I technically wasn't talking to one person, but everyone. Technology Wizard · talk
True. Tech has every right to edit it, and it should be mentioned anyways. --Bullet Francisco (talk) 22:56, September 19, 2011 (UTC)
The updates by admins are in different forums. If you'd like to mention it, you can find a way to get more than a paragraph down, but other than that, you're going to have to make a different forum. – zzi 23:02, September 19, 2011 (UTC)
Can you tell me why it shouldn't or can't be stated here? --Bullet Francisco (talk) 23:05, September 19, 2011 (UTC)
Were this a blog he wouldn't be editing the blog to add it in. Although this is not a blog, it acts quite similar to it. I'm not having any discussion further, because if blogs were still enabled and still used and this forum were never made, it would most likely be in a comment. – zzi 23:35, September 19, 2011 (UTC)
I am just saying that it clearly states "We've made a new forum, this forum is for updates by admins only. Regular users can comment on these forums, but they cannot create one." meaning that the admins can update it whenever, not just Crimson and Jazzi. Technology Wizard · talk
(reset indent) Excuse me for any confusion, but that meant the Administration forum as a whole, which is for updates by all admins, not this individual forum. If you'd like to make an update, by all means, make one. – zzi 00:49, September 20, 2011 (UTC)
