Links

I am going after Indigo League episodes. What is questionable is this template. Wouldn't giving the external links (such as this example) be considered as a spam? Energy X 20:44, October 11, 2013 (UTC)

Userbox help?

could u help me make a userbox please? I have tried many times but it just wont work! I want to make one that says: This user is in love with N.     I also want to have this pic (the one with N and Hilda)  Thx in advance I'm Weird And I'm Proud Of It! :p 14:40, October 12, 2013 (UTC)

About a category

I forgot to tell you that the Ground Pokémon category has Pokémon that aren't that type; it must be something with the PokéBox template. Energy X 22:34, October 12, 2013 (UTC)

Thank You!

Thanks so much! The userbox looks so awesome! :p I'm Weird And I'm Proud Of It! :p 17:32, October 13, 2013 (UTC)

User right colours

I saw the recent "Charizard Orange" edit on Highlight.css and though about this:

  • Charizard Orange- Bureaucrats
  • Blastiose Blue- Admins
  • Venusaur Green- Rollbacks

Evolution template

I'm trying to design an evolution template so that evolution can be listed as a clear image but am trying to not design it like they do at Bulbapedia to prevent issues but am running into some trouble with that... there are some things that likely can't be changed like say using a rare candy for the image of what leveling up evolves a pokemon to or stuff like that, but I can base the design off of the PokéBox template and I can even include tabbers for something... lol idk what though, maybe like for pokemon with cases like Gallade where it is a member of a split evolution line but Gallade itself only has one evo line, the tabber could allow the viewer to see the entire evo line family. Maybe...

Thoughts? 16:00, October 14, 2013 (UTC)
I was more asking what you thought it could include.
I can build a mock-up showing how it would look in use really easily but building a useable template for this sort of thing would take a bit of time. So since you are unsure of whether or not you would have it used I will just build the mock-up first and then figure out the code for the useable template later. 16:06, October 14, 2013 (UTC)
Taking the PokeBox template apart I was able to throw together a general idea of what I had in mind, the coding is a bit messy but the general idea of what I had in mind is there. My main issue with what is there is that the spacing is uneven, the final version would have even spacing I just didn't bother making it even for now, I could probably just throw in a percentage width for all of the spots and that would clean it up but meh...
17:02, October 14, 2013 (UTC)
Yeah I just threw it together quickly to show a general idea, also I used the luxury ball to denote happiness because I looked and Bulbapedia uses the bell... >.>; 17:16, October 14, 2013 (UTC)
Updated it again, used an old ball for the egg because there was no egg sprite image yet that didn't have massive empty surroundings lol. 23:07, October 14, 2013 (UTC)
The final version would have options for the Hows, like you could say level|13 and it would automatically fill that stuff out, but I figured this is just a preview version until you've spoken with Jade about it. Then in the pokebox where the evolutionary line is you could put the PokémonPrevNext template instead and just have it be based on numbers automatically instead of manually. 15:28, October 15, 2013 (UTC)

Image

You you please move this picture to File:354.png? It is Banette's number and other pages that have ??? set as a parameter have that image as sprite. Energy X 20:06, October 14, 2013 (UTC)

Check this out

http://your-pokemon-love-story.wikia.com/wiki/Your_Pokemon_Love_story_Wiki   I made it! Please show it to others! I just started it though so its not very good...

Check this out too, lol three of those banners are in use on that page and looks better (imo) normalized like that. 21:11, October 14, 2013 (UTC)

Membership

Would it be good to invite some users to join Pokepower? If you wonder which, we can discuss it in chat, but tomorrow, as I need to be going soon. Energy X 22:24, October 14, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks! I'm Weird And I'm Proud Of It! :p 11:08, October 15, 2013 (UTC)

Re: FOB and Gym Contest

Sounds good. We have to do Electabuzz VS Magmar and two of the legendary birds facing off though (I mean we have to XD). Me and Energy were saying how we could have 16 or 8 Pokémon from each region though facing off in the early rounds and so we can get through it quicker we can do one match per four days instead of every week.

Wouldn't using the template seem confusing to new users though? RainbowShifter 15:48, October 15, 2013 (UTC)

Me would likey. Me would likey a lot. RainbowShifter 15:52, October 15, 2013 (UTC)
If I would have been able to use it when I first joined then its a simple template! Basically do it as simple as you can and as easy to understand. RainbowShifter 15:57, October 15, 2013 (UTC)
Lets say something like this:
{{
|name= 
|etc=
|etc.=
}}

And put instructions on how to use it in the blog comments. RainbowShifter 16:19, October 15, 2013 (UTC)

Re: Dunno how much simpler it can get than this...

Well this isn't exactly simpler but you could add an if statement saying that if blank is called upon then the image extension can be changed, the _BW.gif part I mean, cause look at my profile. =b 16:12, October 15, 2013 (UTC)

I made this :p

More about templates

Hey, when you got the chance, can you make a part in the FOB template which Pokémon have fought and earned votes. Not sure how exactly, maybe a table of sort? Energy X 22:54, October 16, 2013 (UTC)

Anything about nothing

Hey if you're online can you get on chat? 16:58, October 17, 2013 (UTC)
Or not then, I'm curious and wondering if you could go to Special:AdminDashboard and tell me how many people come here a week, it is on the right side of that page. Also, can you edit Jazzi's talk page for me? Also also what is this FOB? 12:08, October 18, 2013 (UTC)
But how does it entice? What is it?
Also you missed my question asking if you had the ability to post on Jazzi's talk page. 15:13, October 18, 2013 (UTC)
Wikia staff thought what would be a good idea? What is it?
This. 15:32, October 18, 2013 (UTC)
I am asking what FOB is. I've looked at the templates and such but can't figure it out. 16:42, October 18, 2013 (UTC)
I see, so just votes for favored pokemon. Ok then, is it being set up somewhere? Might I recommend an alternate, cleaner way of voting than just polls or writing stuff in an article? Polls can be edited and then all the votes are gone forever...
Did you see what I wanted posted on Jazzi's talk page? 16:51, October 18, 2013 (UTC)
Almost 500,000 views a day... ever hear of Wifi Gyms? lol your creatagym template that I was playing around with on my profile reminded me of those, they used to be really popular a couple years ago and they were basically a fake set of gyms run by a site, a better way to entice users to join and/or become more active could be to run some Wifi Gyms and possibly even a league. 17:08, October 18, 2013 (UTC)
While I'm here, what gives Bulbasaur and all the other pokemon articles their categories? There is like 15 categories for Bulbasaur but only one of them in the coding of the page. I think I checked all of the templates in the page to see if they give it but other than possibly the Reference template I couldn't find anything... is it the Reference template somehow? 19:57, October 18, 2013 (UTC)
Also I took the liberty of updating the Wiki nav bar since I had such a difficult time finding the rules here, I added a few more of the pages for the rules to make it easier to find while also cleaning out some dead links and updating some old info. Use it if you want but I did update a lot. 22:18, October 18, 2013 (UTC)

Chat

Could you go to the chat? We have some things that need to be discussed. Energy X 21:04, October 18, 2013 (UTC)

Battle thingy

Well, wanted to remind you about the battle; it needs to be updated, as you wanted this turn to set it up. Energy X 15:12, October 19, 2013 (UTC)

Template

Did my part, though there is an issue with the battle overview: it is Kanto Part II, not Kalos Part I. Energy X 16:37, October 19, 2013 (UTC)

Questionable edits

Okay, it has gone quite enough. I keep reverting these edits, as the editors have not provided a source in which that fact states. What should be done? Energy X 19:12, October 20, 2013 (UTC)

Promoting

Just wanted to let you know that when promoting a user after they meet the required number of votes, you should give it some time, normally a day, to make sure that any incoming votes can be made. In most cases here, we don't have to worry about that, but it's always good to keep in mind. ∂εsσℓαтευтσρια (тαℓк) 20:05, October 21, 2013 (UTC)

Also, are you able to get in chat? ∂εsσℓαтευтσρια (тαℓк) 20:12, October 21, 2013 (UTC)

Re: Badges

You posted elsewhere about badges, was it about how this site needs image files of them? If so I'm a graphic artist and can design pixel images based off of the XY badges. 20:22, October 21, 2013 (UTC)
Since I have a habit to jump into talk page conversations since I check them all, it needs to be said that pixel images designed by a user cannot be accepted due to them being considered fan art. ∂εsσℓαтευтσρια (тαℓк) 20:24, October 21, 2013 (UTC)
The badges are and were not the ones that are prebuilt in by wikia. felinoel, mind your own business, Nosiness is aggravating and if you're going to snoop/"eves'drop" at least do it right..... >.<
Aye Desolat: I didn't know that. but wasn't planning on doing such a thing as it was.
  Slayingthehalcyon   (Talk)  20:27,10/21/2013    4,177  
I wasn't snooping, it was posted in a public place. Also I was talking about Pokemon badges not Wikia badges. 21:07, October 21, 2013 (UTC)
Uhm, I'll think about it, but I don't think that it will be a possibility as Desolat stated.   Slayingthehalcyon   (Talk)  21:09,10/21/2013    4,177  
Yes Des rose a good point that slipped my mind. 21:11, October 21, 2013 (UTC)
Just to be sure of the rule, if I were to add the missing part of her sleeve copied from her other sleeve, that would be considered fan art and thus not allowed to be used on an article, right? 20:06, October 22, 2013 (UTC)

Highlights

When changing things, especially things like the highlights, please take the fact that there are two skins into consideration. Due to features in Monobook and the link color in Monobook, you can hardly distinguish between a regular link and a sysop link. Furthermore, considering there is no additional anything tied into bureaucrat besides the ability to give people rights, the colors should be the same. Otherwise, when there will be users with rollback, it'll look like there are three ranks, when bureaucrat and sysop are nearly identical. Since it's far less effort to change the highlight colors back to what they originally were than it is to change the Monobook theme. And in the chance that you decide you'll take the effort to change the Monobook theme: I do not give you permission to change/alter this theme. ∂εsσℓαтευтσρια (тαℓк) 22:21, October 21, 2013 (UTC)

The skins that are currently in action were set for X and Y. Not the most "game focused", yeah, but the background is one that is almost certain to work for all monitors. Additionally, I have a lot of experience making Monobook themes for wikis and when a wiki that I edit needs a theme, I step up to the plate as I have in the past. – Jazzi (talk) 22:49, October 21, 2013 (UTC)
Please ignore the fact that that was my old account. I had to log in to transfer the rights from that account to this one on Monobook wiki... ∂εsσℓαтευтσρια (тαℓк) 22:51, October 21, 2013 (UTC)
Oh! You mean for Oasis? I thought you meant both skins. Yeah, you can handle Oasis. I like the background, the background is good. But the page elements look off, such as the font and the navigation being oddly positioned. You can do whatever you want in Oasis, honestly. I'm pretty sure all I did was change the button color and the background. I can't customize for Oasis, so yeah. You could change it to #FF00FF and I wouldn't mind it! ∂εsσℓαтευтσρια (тαℓк) 22:55, October 21, 2013 (UTC)

Re: dude!!!!

Why not? I am only deleting the duplicates? 14:14, October 22, 2013 (UTC)
Some Pokémon articles had an extra one at the top of the page, that is the one I am getting rid of. 14:15, October 22, 2013 (UTC)
I just set up my tabs so I can delete the next hundred or so duplicates so please respond, having this many tabs open at once slows my computer. 14:19, October 22, 2013 (UTC)
Right, well I can't keep these open so I will finish the ones I currently have open and then wait for your response from there. 14:26, October 22, 2013 (UTC)

Image naming system

File:Tyrantrum.png and File:AurorusPokemonXandYEvolutionofAmaura.png are not following the proper naming procedure and need to be deleted and then reuploaded to their properly named places File:697 Tyrantrum.png File:699 Aurorus.png. 21:38, October 22, 2013 (UTC)
Oh... you mean you guys here don't care what an image gets named? Even if say 042.png was named 042sprite.png instead? 042 21:45, October 22, 2013 (UTC)
That was my point. 15:08, October 23, 2013 (UTC)

Re: Evolution template

THAT IS MADNESS! ...that that would solve the issue. lol ok so how does it look now? 16:13, October 23, 2013 (UTC)

Emoticons

Concerning the discussion on the emoticons and Generation VI, I checked the page to see that we cannot add the Generation VI Pokémon yet because the images that are used are from Mystery Dungeon games. Unless we changed all the images to in game sprites, and updated them with every new game, we can't add new emoticons yet. Please note that if we choose to do that someone else is going to have to do that because I flat out refuse. ∂εsσℓαтευтσρια (тαℓк) 18:27, October 26, 2013 (UTC)

Skype

I've messages Energy and Rainbow concerning skype but the message is as followed:

If you have a skype account, or are willing to download Skype and make one, please let me know. I would like to create a group with the administrators so that we can easily discuss things because I have a lot to discuss.

Templates

I see some of the templates could use a bit of extra coding. While I could simplify some things, I fear that ones used would be messed up. What do you think, should I go with that?

Just wanted permission, that is all. Energy X 23:53, October 31, 2013 (UTC)
Well, take this template for example. It has {{{image}}} as parameter, but it should be [[File:|{{{image}}}|225px]] to substitute.
Another template would be this one, it could be simplified. Energy X 16:25, November 1, 2013 (UTC)

Pronounciation

Hm, is it necessary to insert Pokémon pronounciation? Because one user has inserted it in the template. Energy X 20:08, November 6, 2013 (UTC)

TALK – 20:59, November 6, 2013 (UTC)
I did some changes on the template so that some things would be automatic (like links to pre- and post-evolved forms). I attempted to make a change at gender, but it does not work that way; I inserted the male and female parameters, but after seeing genderless Pokémon, I have attempted to make a code so that you can insert number for male and female percentage and to genderless the result would be "Genderless", but it did not work the way I wanted. Could you see what can be done?


It is this part in the template. |<font color=blue>{{{male}}}% ♂</font> / <font color=pink>{{{female}}}% ♀</font>}} -->{{{gender}}}

I wanted it to look like this (but it didn't work out): |{{#if:{{{gender|Genderless}}}|<font color=grey>Genderless</font>|<font color=blue>{{{male}}}% ♂</font> / <font color=pink>{{{female}}}% ♀</font>}}

Parameter

For some reason, this infobox does not work correctly. It has the border on a page like ThunderShock painted, but for fairy-type images like Geomancy it has not. Do you know what is the cause of this? Energy X 16:36, November 10, 2013 (UTC)

Template

A man has made a template in the sandbox. If you insert "|gen=V" (instead of "|gen= VI") , it would show Black (2), White (2), X and Y games that the Pokémon appeared in. I say we could use that template, what do you think? Energy X 00:03, November 16, 2013 (UTC)
