Ok

Can we make bygones be bygones too please and ok, I'll start the news blog again but I would still like you to do the news blog at the end of each month because my internet credit runs out before the last Sunday of each month. Ellis99 CODE XANA 08:41, November 5, 2014 (UTC)

Featured user

Mewtwo Psychic SS026-1- Mewtwo has chosen Shockstorm to be Featured User!


About time you were voted as the User of the Month. Congratulations. Energy X 09:15, November 5, 2014 (UTC)

Congrats Shock on becoming an FU. Ellis99 CODE XANA 09:32, November 5, 2014 (UTC)

Congrats, Shockstorm ^_^! I'm so glad that you became a Featured User :)! Nectaria 025 (talk) 09:34, November 5, 2014 (UTC)

Your a good admin but...

I find that you can be very forceful that's it, other than that, your great. Not trying to cause an argument. Ellis99 CODE XANA 18:26, November 5, 2014 (UTC)

Thanks

Thanks Shock, you never complimented me on my work before.--Kyurem147 (talk) 20:58, November 6, 2014 (UTC)

Hey Shock

I was wondering, what are you going to do with the pokeball sprites in your sandbox, if you are going to delete them, ask CzechOut to sort the redirects after the deletion of them from ".ogg" to ".png" because he has a bot. Ellis99 CODE XANA 09:27, November 7, 2014 (UTC)

No need to block

There is no need to infinitely block Winxfan1. He can't acccess his wikia account ever again.

Peter.tilton.94 (talk) 16:15, November 9, 2014 (UTC)

Again

This user's again on his old tricks insisting on the "second evolution method". To tell you the truth, I'm sick of him. As you know, his block period has just finished, but still he insists. Please take care of the situation. Thanks. 382Adrián Perry GZ383 01:50, November 14, 2014 (UTC)

Thanks. 382Adrián Perry GZ383 01:54, November 14, 2014 (UTC)
No problem. He doesn't seem interested in contributing and he's going to on other wikis to harass people from this wiki, so he'll be blocked for a long time. --Shockstorm (talk) 04:15, November 14, 2014 (UTC)

Hi, Shockstorm!

I have made a new admin request to this page! Please support me if you want to. Nectaria 025 (talk) 09:57, November 14, 2014 (UTC)

Yeah, I'll add to it later, haven't had time yet. --Shockstorm (talk) 19:35, November 14, 2014 (UTC)
Sigh, OK :(. Thanks for your reply! Nectaria 025 (talk) 19:57, November 14, 2014 (UTC)

Hey Shock

CzechOut created a page on bot requests, you should put something in it. Ellis99 CODE XANA 21:27, November 14, 2014 (UTC)

That's good, I'll probably add stuff to it later. --Shockstorm (talk) 21:29, November 14, 2014 (UTC)
Okay and it's best not to leave a space between the last section and templates on pages because it's unneeded space. Ellis99 CODE XANA 21:30, November 14, 2014 (UTC)
[1], here's a link to the page. Ellis99 CODE XANA 21:41, November 14, 2014 (UTC)

Moving pages

Ah, I must inform you the link could be just changed via CzechOut's bot. Energy X 23:45, November 22, 2014 (UTC)

Question

Could you tell me why you reverted my edit? Ellis99 CODE XANA 17:39, December 10, 2014 (UTC)

Because it's used on multiple pages, and you have no business trying to delete things you don't know anything about. You're getting dangerously close to yet another block. --Shockstorm (talk) 20:57, December 10, 2014 (UTC)

Okay. Ellis99 CODE XANA 20:58, December 10, 2014 (UTC)

Sprites

Hello! Unfortunately, I am noticing pages without sprites from other games. So I would like to help out and start adding sprites to pages that need them starting with Ditto. Just wanted to let you know. I am not trying to spam pages by the way. Never would I ever. —Preceding unsigned comment added by JD4MASTER (talkcontribs)

Sounds good. --Shockstorm (talk) 19:35, December 11, 2014 (UTC)

Hey Shock

Can you try and create a "Usage" for this? I've already tried but it didn't work. Template:Pokémon. Ellis99 CODE XANA 19:41, December 11, 2014 (UTC)

Actually, I'll try again. Ellis99 CODE XANA 02:58, December 12, 2014 (UTC)

Why did you ban me?

Did I do something wrong? I don't edit here so I doubt it, please tell me, why did you ban me? —Preceding unsigned comment added by The lone shadowbat. (talkcontribs)

That's the reason. We don't allow people to hang out in chat all day who don't contribute to the wiki. We have better things to do than babysit you and your friends in chat, who have caused enough problems already. --Shockstorm (talk) 07:22, December 30, 2014 (UTC)

WHATT???? WE don't do anything wrong, it isn't bothering any one I'm complaining. —Preceding unsigned comment added by The lone shadowbat. (talkcontribs)

Actually we do allow people to sit in chat as long as they don't cause problems. I have no clue where you got that from Shockstorm. Avingnon  (talk)  20:38,1/8/2015  407 edits
Pretty certain it is because the chat, here, is used more by new users rather than us. I do remember one even called to ban a person for insulting and disrupting. Probably best to disable the feature, for now. Energy X 20:54, January 8, 2015 (UTC)

Energy X: Yeah we can pull the chat back down if it's necessary.
Shockstorm: Sorry 'bout that, didn't realize that was a problem such as it was. Avingnon  (talk)  21:02,1/8/2015  407 edits

Hey, Shockstorm!

What do you think of me uploading transparent versions of the images that have white backgrounds? Do you like this work or not? *trembling in fear* Just wondering :(. 234Nectaria 225 (talk) 14:08, December 30, 2014 (UTC)

Sounds good, transparent images are better than non-transparent images. --Shockstorm (talk) 20:42, December 30, 2014 (UTC)

Hey how can I do that?--Kyurem147 (talk) 21:54, December 30, 2014 (UTC)

You can find the images online, or you can add transparency to images by editing them (using something like Paint or Photoshop). I don't have experience with that sort of thing, so you might want to ask Nectaria or someone who knows about adding transparency. --Shockstorm (talk) 00:31, December 31, 2014 (UTC)
Really :(? *closes to tears* Thank you, Shockstorm :(. I agree that the transparent images are better because they're more clear. Thanks for your reply ^_^. 234Nectaria 225 (talk) 06:18, December 31, 2014 (UTC)

Hi, Shockstorm!

Thanks for removing those external links from Heroes Wiki because I don't think they were really needed either. Sigh, Sorry for not removing them because I thought that Energy and other users will not agree with me and they will revert my edits :(. Nectaria 025 (talk) 06:21, January 2, 2015 (UTC)

Oh, don't worry about that. Even if they disagreed, it's not a big deal. I think your first guesses are usually right :). --Shockstorm (talk) 06:27, January 2, 2015 (UTC)
Oh, yes! You're right about that. Sorry, I get sad so easily. OK, thanks for your reply ^_^. Nectaria 025 (talk) 06:35, January 2, 2015 (UTC)

Hey, Shock...

Thanks for sending a warning message to Kyurem's talk page. I agree that he need to stop doing that annoying work. He need to upload his versions on the same files instead of uploading them with different file names. DragonSpore18 was also annoyed when Kyurem tagged some of  her images for deletions. She told me that on my talk page.  Nectaria 025 (talk) 22:23, January 5, 2015 (UTC)

Really sorry, I'll sort this out somehow. I was tagging bulb/small/bad named, bad images, but I got confused between them.--Kyurem147 (talk) 22:29, January 5, 2015 (UTC)


Question

Can I ask what your reasoning is behind banning Ellis; please don't give me the ban reason, I've already seen that, I want you to back it up with evidence please. Avingnon  (talk)  20:40,1/8/2015  407 edits

You can look at his talk page and archives - myself and other users have warned him over and over that he needs to actually discuss major changes before making them (especially considering his changes are usually unnecessary/harmful). Ie moving all disambiguation pages to include "(disambiguation)" in the name, and edit warring when he didn't get his way. Other instances include unilaterally changing the layout and format of entire groups of articles with no discussion or even explanation beforehand. I thought I made it clear to him that this wasn't acceptable, but even after multiple bans he apparently has decided he doesn't need to change.
On top of all this, he likes to ask others to revert changes he doesn't agree with, instead of discussing those changes with the person who made them. There's been many instances of him going behind my back and asking someone else to revert something I did, but he phrases it in a way to make it sound as if he's innocent and everyone else is in the wrong and by leaving out important details (taking advantage of the fact that the admins here don't have the ability or time to go over ever change made). He typically repeats this until he gets his way, even if we're talking about something incredibly petty like restoring an image that hasn't been unused and will be continue to be unused (see Energy's talk page for many examples). Overall this has been quite destructive to the wiki, and it needs to stop. --Shockstorm (talk) 22:17, January 8, 2015 (UTC)
Oh, I see he decided to try and get you to unban him, without actually addressing what I have told him or trying to talk with me. Very typical of him. Yet another reason why I don't have a lot of sympathy towards him as he refuses to deal with things transparently and in good faith. --Shockstorm (talk) 22:24, January 8, 2015 (UTC)
Then I hope you don't mind if I lengthen the ban to something I see as more fit? Avingnon  (talk)  01:45,1/9/2015  407 edits
That's fine. --Shockstorm (talk) 05:16, January 9, 2015 (UTC)

Sigh!

Are you still sure that I'm a good admin :(? Well, I asked that because I'm afraid that you will get mad at me if I restored a page that you have deleted. Ellis asked me to restore the Pokepower: Organize page but I was afraid to restore the page. *starts trembling in fear* Please don't be mad at me :(. Nectaria 025 (talk) 21:14, January 8, 2015 (UTC)

You can do whatever you like - if you think it's important, then make those changes. I'm not going to yell at you or try to ban you. And yes, you are a good admin. I'm just fed up with Ellis's attitude, that's all. --Shockstorm (talk) 22:19, January 8, 2015 (UTC)
Really :(? *almost cries* Oh, Shockstorm :(. I'm so glad that you were not mad at me :). You're right about that. Of course, I can do whatever I like. OK, thanks for answering me ^_^. Nectaria 025 (talk) 22:47, January 8, 2015 (UTC)

January 25

Hi Shockstorm! I'm so excited because the Wiki's birthday is coming soon. It's crazy, isn't it? I checked out of curiosity and found out it is on January 25, and it's not just a year more, it's its tenth birthday! Jellochuu created it 10 years ago. So, in honor of this occasion, I'm working on a wordmark exclusive for the anniversary. The plan is to replace the Poké Ball and create another one with "Happy 10th Anniversary!!!". However, since I don't want to mess everything up, I want it to be examined first, and other users say their opinion if it's okay or if something should be changed or added.

Since it's 10 years, I would like to do some other changes to the Wiki, however, I'm not really sure of what could be. Maybe you can think of something and together we can organize something to make the Wiki celebrate. Maybe we should create a forum.

We must hurry up. I've told Energy X about it, and I'm thinking of telling Avingon, Nectaria and Ellis99. Also more specific help to CzechOut. If there's someone else you can think of for asking their help, please tell them. 382PAdrián Perry GZ383P 03:21, January 9, 2015 (UTC)

Sorry, I didn't know Ellis99 had been blocked, so he's out of the list. It's a shame, though. 382PAdrián Perry GZ383P 03:31, January 9, 2015 (UTC)
That's a good idea. I can't think of anything right now, but I will try too. Please let me know if you have any ideas - you had good ideas regarding the wordmark and stuff in the past, so don't be shy :). --Shockstorm (talk) 06:21, January 9, 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for replying, and, yes, I have a couple of ideas. Something I would like (and not only for the annivesary) is to add a picture in the upper part. I've seen other Wikis have pictures there, so it would be great to have it. Also, I'm having a friend help us, he has been giving me ideas and opinions about this logo. He's joining Wikia soon, so we can work everybody like a team. Tomorrow I'm not going to be too active, but the day after I will. In the meantime, Nectaria will create the forum and please help her, adding what I've told you. Also, you don't have to go jumping from talk page to talk page, it's the same information, in fact, I've given you more than others. See you soon. 382PAdrián Perry GZ383P 04:59, January 10, 2015 (UTC)

Hey, Shockstorm...

What do you think of blocking this user? He continue inserting so many unneeded categories on every anime pages that he have edited. It seems that he was really "badgehunting". Sigh, do you think that this block was good for him or not :(? I'm not really good at blocking users :(. Nectaria 025 (talk) 04:17, January 10, 2015 (UTC)

It's good, you're fine. --Shockstorm (talk) 08:13, January 10, 2015 (UTC)
So, do you think that I'm really good at blocking users :(? *sobs* I thought you were not happy with the block ;_; *wiping a few tears*. OK, I see :). Thanks for your reply, Shockstorm ^_^. Nectaria 025 (talk) 16:35, January 10, 2015 (UTC)

Deleted User Blogs

If you're going to delete my personal user blogs at least give a good reason for it please. TheBigT2000 (talk) 10:12, January 10, 2015 (UTC)

I was cleaning up a bunch unneeded blogs and images that made it difficult for people to find relevant information. If you want some place to put your "personal blogs", then you can do so elsewhere. This wiki is not a blogging service. --Shockstorm (talk) 10:40, January 10, 2015 (UTC)
Okay, I get that, but here's my question: Why does the wiki even HAVE a User Blog service then? TheBigT2000 (talk) 15:15, January 10, 2015 (UTC)

News

Hey, will you be able to update the news today? Energy X 13:01, January 11, 2015 (UTC)

No, sorry, I'm really busy today. --Shockstorm (talk) 22:57, January 11, 2015 (UTC)

Nevermind, I did it already. Thought you would be able do this sooner. Energy X 23:00, January 11, 2015 (UTC)

Shock, I'm going to tell you something that will make you upset...

This user sent me a random message on Yu-Gi-Oh! wiki about the chat being removed on Pokémon Wiki and I told him that wikis are not only a place to chat with other users but also a place to edit pages -_-. Do you agree with me? He also told me that you have more power over me and that comment made me so upset. Sigh, this makes me not a good admin :(. Nectaria 025 (talk) 19:24, January 11, 2015 (UTC)

Oh, I remember him. He's just looking to cause trouble. Just ignore him since he's only trying to mess with you. Obviously you have just as much power as me since we're both admins. --Shockstorm (talk) 23:02, January 11, 2015 (UTC)
Oh, Shockstorm :(. *sobs* It's gre-great to hear that I have just as much po-power as you ;_; *wiping a few tears*. You're right about that. Sorry, I get emotional so easily. Yes, I know that he was trying to mess with me -_-. Well, I saw him sending messages to Avingnon and Ellis too. I noticed that you blocked him for the second time. I'm happy with this block  because I don't want to see him returning and sending another message to my talk page. OK, thanks for answering me ^_^. Nectaria 025 (talk) 23:38, January 11, 2015 (UTC)


Just for secondary recompense, (if that's the right word, we may never know) that user has also messaged me, and complained about you, shock, being a poor admin, I told him he needed "to jump off a cliff" in a rather nice way, thanks for doing the right thing. Avingnon  (talk)  13:49,1/12/2015  407 edits
Haha, thanks. I get the feeling he was messaging people to goad them into unblocking him. --Shockstorm (talk) 18:30, January 12, 2015 (UTC)
No problem, glad to have you as part of the team. Avingnon  (talk)  01:57,1/14/2015  407 edits

I have a question...

Why did you post this image of May's Blaziken from  Animated ORAS trailer to Anime May's Blaziken's page? Did you know that we have a seperate page for ORAS trailer May's Blaziken? I decided to not revert your edit on May's Blaziken because I'm afraid that you will not agree with me and you will revert it :(. Sigh, I will try my best to become more brave and serious but sadly, I'm more timid and emotional admin :(. Sorry :(. Nectaria 025 (talk) 19:53, January 13, 2015 (UTC)

Because that is an article for May's Blaziken, in anime, games and manga (though I don't recall May appeared in manga, except as Sapphire)? Energy X 19:56, January 13, 2015 (UTC)

Nectaria: I didn't know that :p. I've removed it from that page. I was going through Special:UnusedFiles and put some images on pages, so I wasn't really paying attention. --Shockstorm (talk) 19:58, January 13, 2015 (UTC)

How about this? Energy X 20:01, January 13, 2015 (UTC)

Energy X: May does appear in some manga but most of  those were manga adaptations of the anime. She appeared in Ash and Pikachu manga, manga adaptations of MS006-MS009 and in a manga adaptation of RS games that is not Adventures manga. It was only one chapter long I think.
Shockstorm: OK, I see :P. I know that you use Special:UnusedFiles page a lot. Thanks for removing it. Sigh, I wish I should have been more brave like you :(.
OK, thanks for your replies, guys  ^_^. Nectaria 025 (talk) 20:09, January 13, 2015 (UTC)
What the heck are you doing, Energy -_-? This page is only for May's Blaziken from the anime and not for all May's Blaziken from other series. They're the same species but not the same characters -_-. Adding May's Blaziken's manga appearances is fine but not adding the appearances of ORAS trailer's May's Blaziken because it have its own page.  Nectaria 025 (talk) 20:15, January 13, 2015 (UTC)

question

why did you delete my picture on my profile page? could you give me a little info on why you did so?  there was nothing wrong with it. Tails power (talk) 22:56, January 16, 2015 (UTC)

Because I was cleaning up spam, and you don't contribute here anyways. There's other image hosting services out there, but this wiki is not one of them. --Shockstorm (talk) 00:11, January 17, 2015 (UTC)

thanks

whew. sorry. i almost lost myself there.  but ok.  thanks for letting me know.  i thought i could post it on my profile page though. Tails power (talk) 00:26, January 17, 2015 (UTC)

Re: Editing my profile

Why did you remove something from my profile? 403. ƒelinoel_ 048 14:03, January 17, 2015 (UTC)

Because it was a redlink that someone else deleted. --Shockstorm (talk) 22:25, January 17, 2015 (UTC)
Why did someone delete something from my profile..? 403. ƒelinoel_ 048 06:08, January 18, 2015 (UTC)

Manga images

Well, if you have time and will, you can delete them. Those are just leftovers; when I can't cut out the images, I simply upload them here and cut them later. Although I sometimes forget to delete the previous ones... Energy X 00:39, January 18, 2015 (UTC)

Re:DPP Trainer Pages

Ah okay, thanks for telling me. I didn't realize that it was fake, or else I would have reverted it myself. I have played the games but I guess it was too long ago to remember ;)

Thanks for supporting me for getting the rollbacks right and telling me that I've done great work!

Oh yeah, I do have a question though. Do you know if there's any way to make the map smaller on the Ranger Infobox Template? I have uploaded two maps of it but when I place them in the template, there are too big and doesn't look nice. I hope you can help me with that.--Lordranged7 (talk) 08:30, January 18, 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for helping me! Oh yeah, it is also fine to recreate Haruba Village? I saw that it was deleted (probably because of bulb copying) but I am going to ask you to make it sure before making the page.--Lordranged7 (talk) 08:53, January 18, 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for comfirming it!--Lordranged7 (talk) 09:15, January 18, 2015 (UTC)

Sigh!

I saw the message that you send to Caster's talk page and that made me so upset. You told him that he should ignore those names from previous generations because you thought that the names were confusing but they were not confusing to me. Sigh, the truth is that I was the one who told him to name the sprites like that :(.  It was more my fault than Ellis' fault. Sorry, I'm not really good at naming files and that made me a bad admin :(. *almost cries* Please don't be mad at me :(. Nectaria 025 (talk) 12:10, January 18, 2015 (UTC)

Hmm? Well, I can see your point. But the thing is, the "normal" sprites (the non-shiny ones that show the front) for Generations I-IV are mostly already uploaded, but they use the pokedex numbers instead of the actual names. Gaehwasan uploaded those a long time ago, and since there's so many I decided to use that format for Gens I-IV. So my point was that it was complicated and probably a waste of time to upload older front sprites since many of them would be duplicates. Plus I was talking to someone who may not know much English, so I wanted to make things simple to understand.
You're not a bad admin, you just didn't know. I probably should've explained the sprite situation to you, but I wasn't on very much these past few months. So I don't think it's a big deal. If you want to see how the older generation sprites are named and uploaded, you can see here (be warned as there's a ton of sprites, and will take a while to load). --Shockstorm (talk) 23:17, January 18, 2015 (UTC)
However, I am very disappointed that you continue to talk behind others' backs on another wiki. I expect a basic level of honesty from an admin, and I though you knew better. If you have a problem with a user, then talk to them directly. And no, you are not allowed to help a user evade their ban. If a user is blocked, you do NOT get to make edits for them. It's that simple. --Shockstorm (talk) 00:03, January 19, 2015 (UTC)
Well, I have seen those sprites before on this sandbox but I thought that those sprites were not needed. OK, now I understand what did you mean. *tries not to cry* I'm so glad that you still think that I'm not a bad admin but...*starts crying* I'm sorry if I made you mad ;_;. *sobs* I was only talking to Ellis for some things before he will get unblocked on February ;_;  *stops crying and wiping a few tears*. I thought you were kind to me but you were not :(. OK, bye...I will not talk to you anymore because you made me so upset. Nectaria 025 (talk) 04:46, January 19, 2015 (UTC)

News

Hey, will you be able to do the news this weekend? Energy X 11:17, January 23, 2015 (UTC)

No. And I'm not feeling too charitable towards people who evade bans and such (not you, I've just had it with some of the people here, and therefore am not really motivated to contribute right now). Plus, Ellis should realize that he needs to face the consequences instead of getting other people to do things for him. --Shockstorm (talk) 17:15, January 23, 2015 (UTC)

Sorry

Sorry Shock, it just it was idea and I knew there was important role it had. I promise I'll remember next time if this happens again. I didn't ask you these before? My bad. If this happens you want to discuss it with you or X first something like that?--Kyurem147 (talk) 23:34, January 25, 2015 (UTC)

All right I promise I'll remember next time. If happens again.--Kyurem147 (talk) 23:38, January 25, 2015 (UTC)

Hey, Shockstorm...

I noticed that you blocked many of Pikachu700's sockpuppet accounts. Thanks for blocking most of his accounts but there is one missing. The fan-art that this user posted is the same as Pikachu700's fan-arts. I knew that all these accounts were his sockpuppet accounts but I was afraid to tell you to block them. Well, I also noticed that one of his sockpuppet account have vandalized my user page and you reverted his edits back. *close to tears* Thanks for helping me sometimes :). I thought you didn't care about me :). Sorry for being mad at you :(. I think you're still a good admin :(. Nectaria 025 (talk) 10:14, January 26, 2015 (UTC)

No, you're fine. And thanks for telling me. --Shockstorm (talk) 14:47, January 26, 2015 (UTC)
...*sobs* I'm so glad that you still care about me ;_; *wiping a few tears*. Thanks for blocking all Pikachu700's sockpuppet accounts. He need to stop creating so many multiple accounts or vandalizing random pages -_-. OK, thanks for your reply ^_^. Nectaria 025 (talk) 15:03, January 26, 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, I contacted Wikia and they'll be dealing with it soon. --Shockstorm (talk) 15:08, January 26, 2015 (UTC)
So, you contacted Wikia about it? That's cool. Yes, he should be blocked in all wikis that he have visited. Thanks for replying me again ^_^. Nectaria 025 (talk) 16:15, January 26, 2015 (UTC)
I noticed that he created another sockpuppet account and I blocked it myself. What do you think of me blocking one of his account? Just wondering. Nectaria 025 (talk) 21:43, January 26, 2015 (UTC)
That's good, you did everything right (including blocking talk page and IP edits from him). --Shockstorm (talk) 22:21, January 26, 2015 (UTC)
...*blushes* Oh, thank you so much, Shockstorm :). Well, I prefer to block everything from bad users not just blocking their user pages but also blocking their talk pages and their IP edits. Thanks for your reply ^_^. Nectaria 025 (talk) 22:35, January 26, 2015 (UTC)

Yvetal

Hey Shock a question about the Yvetal pics if you've seen them. I've looked and they're a really on blur side. I know bad images are not allowed, but I didn't tag them cause I might made a bad mistake. I didn't tag cause I thought I hear your opinion. Trying to be caution.--Kyurem147 (talk) 03:02, January 31, 2015 (UTC)

You mean ones like this? In my opinion those look fine. Anyways, if you find bad quality images, it's best to keep them. Just upload over them, or add the image quality template to it (I forgot its name). --Shockstorm (talk) 03:07, January 31, 2015 (UTC)

You mean the bad image template. It says replace with a higher quality. Does it mean replace as in load separate? I've seen template before on Articles needing better images.--Kyurem147 (talk) 03:21, January 31, 2015 (UTC)

No, that means just upload over. Of course, if it's an image from Bulbapedia or if it's a .jpg and you have a .png, then you can upload a seperate image. --Shockstorm (talk) 04:26, January 31, 2015 (UTC)

Sigh, Shockstorm...

Please don't delete any unused images that were uploaded by me because they were still needed. I noticed that you deleted those two images and that made me so upset >:(. I still need those images because I will create pages for Lara and Dario's ETOP manga counterparts and that's why I restored both images. If you do that again then I will stop liking your work -_-. Nectaria 025 (talk) 16:19, January 31, 2015 (UTC)

Can you please contact Wikia again to block all Pikachu700's sockpuppet accounts in any wikis that he have visited? One of his accounts sent me some messages on Yu-Gi-Oh! Wiki and I removed all of them because he annoyed me -_-. Nectaria 025 (talk) 18:48, January 31, 2015 (UTC)

Well, I'm not sure what you mean by not liking my work, but it's generally not a good idea to threaten people. I deleted them since I thought they had been replaced and thought that's why they were unused. But since you need them it's fine that you restored them. Anyways, yes, I will contact Wikia again. Thank you for telling me about that, since I really want to make sure that spammer is blocked. --Shockstorm (talk) 19:45, January 31, 2015 (UTC)
Oh, OK, I see. Sorry if I made you upset :(. I still like your work. So, you will contact them again? That's great :). No problem, I like helping you sometimes ^_^. Nectaria 025 (talk) 20:18, January 31, 2015 (UTC)
No, it's fine. And yes, I just contacted them. --Shockstorm (talk) 20:19, January 31, 2015 (UTC)
Cool, thanks for contacting them. I can't stand users who have more than one account -_-. So, you were not mad at me :(? *sobs* I'm so glad that you're not mean to me ;_; *wiping a few tears*.  OK, thanks for answering me ^_^. Nectaria 025 (talk) 20:33, January 31, 2015 (UTC)

Regarding move set templates (Corrected)

Hello and salutations,

I have been adding move sets to this wiki and I noticed one of the admins/users has been changing the templates constantly. I do not know who it is, but all I know is that they may be trying to modernize the templates. Unfortunately this keeps breaking the move set tables that I have been added in recently. My question to you is should I continue trying to add move sets to the Pokémon pages or should I wait for this to be sorted out? I wish to be productive in this wiki and do not want to waste anyone's time or inadvertently be accused of vandalism due to this situation. I Apologize for the mistake for sending you an incomplete message earlier. It seems the Pokémon Wikia site is finicky on my system. Perfidious Vulpine (talk) 23:42, February 2, 2015 (UTC)Perfidious Vulpine

Yes, what you're doing is good - it saves me some work as I have also been trying to get rid of the alternate moveset templates (the older ones that look messed up). You might be referring to me - I haven't been editing those templates, but I have been fixing some of the pages with those templates and deleting the old ones once they're no longer used. Oh, and all the admins here have orange-colored names. So in summary, yes, continue to do what you've been doing. I'm just a little confused about the user you're referring to and if their changes are breaking the templates. Could you explain? Thanks. --Shockstorm (talk) 00:52, February 3, 2015 (UTC)
Sorry for the late reply but it seems the user and admin in question would be Jazzcookie and  Energy X. They seemed to have finished modernizing the TM/HM templates and thus the problem of breaking the templates has ceased for now. (My problem was that I was using the older templates and they were experimenting with implementing the newer ones; Thus, they were breaking the move sets I added in.) You may want to speak with them as this issue falls beyond my jurisdiction as a user. I will continue to contribute to this wiki the best I can. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Perfidious Vulpine (talkcontribs)
Ok, I see. I think they're fixed now, though. --Shockstorm (talk) 04:43, February 4, 2015 (UTC)
Ooh, my first name check since my return! Sorry for that, Perfidious Vulpine. I'm done tweaking those two sets. It's confusing having about ten different sets of templates for each move set so thought it'd be best if we try to condense it a bit- makes editing smoother in the long run, and hopefully it'll be easier to update the templates in future too. I'm planning to do a similar thing with breeding and tutor movesets... eventually. I'm rubbish with templates so it takes me ages to get my head around it all (unless some other lovely person wants to do it?). In time, we should end up with four main template sets instead of... actually, I've kinda lost count at this point. Squillions? Jazzcookie (talk) 15:57, February 4, 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for doing that, I was able to delete the alternate ones not in use. You're probably better than I am with templates, haha (I have little experience in that area). I'm wondering if there's an easier way to distinguish between games within a generation besides using the tt template. Would be good since a lot of Hoenn pokemon had their learnsets changed in ORAS from their XY ones (not to mention previous generations). But that's kind of a minor thing right now. --Shockstorm (talk) 17:50, February 4, 2015 (UTC)
I agree with the tt thing, was just thinking about this and browsing the vast world wide web for DP/HGSS icons (I started editing Ho-Oh, hoooo boy! ~regrets~). Thought lil icons (to go alongside levels/tms etc.) could solve the problem easily. I know we have a few knocking around already, but they're all different in style. Perhaps somebody with arty skills could knock some up for us, covering all the main games. I don't really want to go down the letters route; too BP, plus oldies like me sometimes struggle to see teeny letters- particularly that pesky Yellow. Separate columns for games overcomplicates things and makes it hard to create a general template. Plus icons just seem to be more visually appealing. It'd be relatively simple to do an icon template so we could add that to the relevant moves. Uhh, sorry for the wall of text, think that's my entire thought process on it right now! What solutions were you thinking of? Jazzcookie (talk) 18:20, February 4, 2015 (UTC)
I haven't thought about icons instead of letters - that's a good idea. I know we at least have the B/W/B2/W2 icons because those are used for locations in Unova and things like that.
Here's an example of the icons used for BW/B2W2. They seem to be added manually instead of with a template. Maybe we should change templates like this to show the icons instead of the name? --Shockstorm (talk) 19:14, February 4, 2015 (UTC)
Yes, that's what I remember! Thanks for taking the time to show me those. It links in nicely if those icons are already used in various articles too. The only possible downside of icons would be that moves would either be listed multiple times, or have several levels listed for one move; some people might think it's confusing, especially for ones like Ho-Oh. I'll play around a bit and see what works best. Another thought: if a Pokémon has a lot of changes and drastic levelling differences in one generation- like my best pal Ho-Oh- we could simply have separate tabs for the games. In Ho-Oh's case, it'd have the usual tabs but Gen IV could be split into Generation IV (DPPt) and Generation IV (HGSS). Pokémon like Charmander (who has minor changes in its Gen VI TM/HM set) could use the icon system. Jazzcookie (talk) 21:50, February 4, 2015 (UTC)

Attacks

Hey shock a little question. Is ok to add attack pics with opening credits? I'm asking cause I can't make and load certain image without credits.--Kyurem147 (talk) 19:52, February 4, 2015 (UTC)

Yeah, that's fine. --Shockstorm (talk) 19:53, February 4, 2015 (UTC)

Deleted Forum

Hi I recently created a forum about my idea for a Pokemon Game in the Watercooler section of the Forums. I was under the impression that the Watercooler was a place for "discussion about the Pokémon Wiki or anything else related to the Pokémon franchise" so why was the forum deleted? I see no rule against fanon or speculation in the forum so why was it deleted? Knightmare · [Talk]  22:07, February 4, 2015 (UTC)

Because there's a whole bunch of other wikis where you can post that stuff. This wiki only deals with the actual franchise, not somebody's fan game they want to promote. And that goes for the whole wiki. There's no reason to post it here. --Shockstorm (talk) 22:10, February 4, 2015 (UTC)

Headers

Hey there Shockstorm! I saw that you removed the Main Games headers from the pages? Should that be applied to all the pages and I believe if it is so, it will be the same for "Main Series", "Side Series", "Side Games", and some more like that? Thanks in advance!--Lordranged7 (talk) 20:36, February 6, 2015 (UTC)

I was just removing it in cases where it's not needed. Characters that don't appear in the side games (Ranger, Mystery Dungeon, etc) don't need that header, just "Games" and then those specific games, like Platinum or X&Y. Probably the same thing with the "Main Series" and "Movie Series" with anime characters, although I don't know a whole lot about the anime. Cases where both those headers would be needed would be like Jessie and James, since they appear in both the anime and the movies. I think it's mostly a problem with the game characters, because the extra headers on those pages are unnecessary and take up space (unless they actually appear in side games, of course). --Shockstorm (talk) 20:42, February 6, 2015 (UTC)
Ah okay. Should I do the same to what you did on the pages where it is the case that they are not needed?--Lordranged7 (talk) 20:55, February 6, 2015 (UTC)
If you'd like yeah, although I can get some of those when I go through to check the B2W2 PWT sections for all the gym leaders and champions in the series. --Shockstorm (talk) 22:04, February 6, 2015 (UTC)
Ah okay, I will do the other pages then that are not included in the B2W2 PWT. Thanks for answering my questions to you!--Lordranged7 (talk) 22:39, February 6, 2015 (UTC)
Actually, we can remove "Main Games" and "Side Games" too since those just take up space and aren't necessary. --Shockstorm (talk) 07:14, February 7, 2015 (UTC)
Okay, I will remember to remove that from the pages. Thanks for informing me!--Lordranged7 (talk) 07:55, February 7, 2015 (UTC)

Re:Trainer Templates

No problem! Oh, they should be like that? Oops my bad, I didn't know that. I thought someone trolled with the page and that's why I changed it. Thanks for telling me about that!

What do you think of me using some of unused sprites from Gaehwasan's Sandbox page to some Pokémon pages :(? I was trying to make you happy because you were mad when I deleted the Light of Ruin page. Sorry, I will not delete this page again :(.  Nectaria 025 (talk) 03:57, February 9, 2015 (UTC)

It's fine, not a big deal. If you want you could post some sprites on the individual pages, that'd be good. But I'm not mad at you, nor should you be too concerned with how others feel (because ultimately worrying about how others might think about you isn't important and just gives you unnecessary stress, as I've learned in life). --Shockstorm (talk) 04:26, February 9, 2015 (UTC)

Really :(? So, you still like my work :(? *close to tears* Thanks for liking my work, Shockstorm :). It's great to hear that you were not mad at me :). OK, I will try my best to not get sad so easily. Thanks for answering me. Nectaria 025 (talk) 04:42, February 9, 2015 (UTC)

The main game series of templates (HGSS, Pt, DP etc.)

Howdies, I am here to bug you again. ^.^ In our previous discussion, you mentioned switching the existing templates to icons. However, when we do that- I still haven't found anything to work with- could we look into separating a few of them, so that each game has its own template? It could potentially be useful for not only the move sets, but for things like item/Pokémon lists on location pages as well. There's no urgent need for it (think move sets will keep me occupied for a fair while!) but thought I'd throw something else your way to muse upon. Jazzcookie (talk) 20:03, February 9, 2015 (UTC)

Yes, sounds good. Although I won't be able to help much in that way since I'm bad with templates and don't have a lot of free time at the moment. --Shockstorm (talk) 22:41, February 9, 2015 (UTC)
That's alright; I just wanted to run it by you before I started smashing things around again. :p Jazzcookie (talk) 23:00, February 9, 2015 (UTC)

Hm, maybe. I guess he just wants to help in all aspects. He wrong about this, but you do see that he does make the news and was willing to make the Adventures' manga chapters.

Height

Hi Shockstorm. I was wondering if you could help me. I've created this page called "List of Pokémon by height", and it lists all Pokémon by their height. The problem is that the cells are transparent, and it looks really bad. How can I add the solid white background to them? 382PAdrián Perry GZ383P 02:29, February 16, 2015 (UTC)

I messed around with it for a bit before realizing that you have to add "background-color:#FFFFFF" to the very top. I only changed the 0 meters table, though. --Shockstorm (talk) 02:51, February 16, 2015 (UTC)
It's OK. I've done the others, anyway, thanks for the help. Also, do you think I should add the measures in feet? That would be after the measures in meters in parenthesis, however. 382PAdrián Perry GZ383P 04:18, February 16, 2015 (UTC)
If you're willing, yeah, that would be a good idea. --Shockstorm (talk) 04:52, February 16, 2015 (UTC)

MD Sprites

Hey there! I have seen the MD sprites in the Unused images page for a while now and I was wondering if there is a way to use the MD sprites?--Lordranged7 (talk) 08:35, February 22, 2015 (UTC)

Yeah, I've been meaning to work on those. I've been looking for an easy way to display those, and I think I've found one. If you look at the MD dungeon pages, there's a bunch of different styles of tables that have been used. I'm gonna try and use a template I translated from the Spanish wiki (theirs uses the portrait images, but I think the sprites look better). Actually, it's a bunch of templates that work together. I used them on Waterfall Cave - what do you think? --Shockstorm (talk) 09:48, February 22, 2015 (UTC)
I have looked at the Waterfall Cave page and I think it looks really nice! I do agree that the sprites look better than the portrait. Do you need any help with adding that templates to the dungeon pages?--Lordranged7 (talk) 11:13, February 22, 2015 (UTC)
Thanks. I can add them myself over the next week or so (it's kinda complicated since I need to get the coding for each page and then edit it a bit). I'm not sure if the Exclusive Items List is finished - you can help with that if you like. Hopefully by having a complete list of items we can get all the item sprites off the Unused images page. --Shockstorm (talk) 20:00, February 22, 2015 (UTC)
You're welcome. Okay, it's fine. I will see if I can be any help with the Exclusive Items list.--Lordranged7 (talk) 20:50, February 22, 2015 (UTC)

Block

Can you please block this user because his/her username is similar to this user's name and both have joined on Kirby Wiki and Pikmin Wiki. Maybe this ClappaSappa must be Sappt's sockpuppet account. Sappt have uploaded some fan-arts and posted one of those fan-arts to Delia Ketchum's page before it was reverted by Energy X. He/She edited Todd Snap's anime counterpart page before it was reverted by Energy X again. Later his/her sockpuppet have reverted Energy's edits and I reverted his/her edits back to Energy's last version. Nectaria 025 (talk) 23:15, February 26, 2015 (UTC)

Oh, *blushes* thanks for saying that, Shockstorm ^_^. So, this user is also a cross-wiki vandal and I can't stand those vandals -_-.

Can you please block this user too? It's another sockpuppet account of Manu.boss.39 along with ManuHawlucha and maybe Manu1544 too. The problem is that he keep replacing some good images with his terrible images that are smaller (and have bad quality or bad file names) than the previous versions -_-.
