Re: Pokemon X&Y Content Campaigns/Wikia Podcast

I love the ideas, especially the one regarding the building of your own gym! I was thinking we could also have a tournament bracket with different Pokémon. I probably haven't explained that very well, what I mean is we could have something like Final Fantasy Wiki did (for example). Blogs would be the best platform to host all of this on though as its more user friendly, especially to the newer users.

I would love to take part! Really excited Pokémon Wiki is going to be featured in it. What times/date would we do the skype discussion? The timing might be a little awkward as I live in the UK and whoever is doing the discussion with me may live in America, or somewhere where the time zones are hours and hours off my time zone! :D RainbowShifter 21:00, October 2, 2013 (UTC)

Definitely agree with you about the blogs. Our Development Team has organized plenty of bracket tournaments across different wikis so we can definitely help you out if you need it. I'm glad you like the gym idea, I already figured out what I'd pick : >.
Living in England shouldn't be a problem if you could record in the evening. Two times we can set aside would be anytime Friday Oct. 4th, between 2:30 PM - 4:00 PM Pacific Standard Time or Monday, Oct. 7th between 1 PM - 4 PM Pacific Standard Time. Recording usually takes about 30-40 minutes, including set-up time. (Sorry I couldn't convert the times to your local area!)
Let me know if these times work for you or not : > TheBlueRogue @Wikia (profile)•(talk)•(email) 22:02, October 2, 2013 (UTC)
Friday 4th October would be the most ideal for me but we it be possible to start at 1 PM, instead of the 2:30 PM? I would really like to start everything before 2 PM (because for me 2:30 PM would be 10:30 PM and I do most of my work at that time! 9 PM start would really work better for me). Thanks, RainbowShifter 22:36, October 2, 2013 (UTC)
The earliest we could start on Friday would be 2 PM PST, we could manage 1 PM PST on Monday if that would work for you. Would any of those times work for you? : D TheBlueRogue @Wikia (profile)•(talk)•(email) 00:22, October 3, 2013 (UTC)
Yep 2 PM this Friday should be alright then! RainbowShifter 07:00, October 3, 2013 (UTC)
Alright, I'm REALLY sorry but I guess a meeting came up for our podcasts hosts on Friday. I guess 1 PM Monday seems to be the best option for us. I hope that will still work for you. Agreeing on times shouldn't be this difficult, haha! TheBlueRogue @Wikia (profile)•(talk)•(email) 16:21, October 3, 2013 (UTC)
It shouldn't haha! Monday 1PM would be alright too. RainbowShifter 16:25, October 3, 2013 (UTC)
Perfect! Alright, please send an email to jorge@wikia-inc.com (he's the primary podcast host and a good dude!) and let him know what your Skype name is, he'll add you and then you'll be all set for Monday. Can't wait to hear the finished product! TheBlueRogue @Wikia (profile)•(talk)•(email) 22:44, October 3, 2013 (UTC)

Well, we can say that a "Festival of Battle" has been planned and we will do it every weekend. The other ideas are good as well, but we need more people to maintain. Would you send some assistance for such projects 8after they have been started)? Energy X 20:12, October 8, 2013 (UTC)

I can post and mantain all three of those ideas, so no worries about providing any backup. I'll lay out a template for the Create Your Gym that users can simple fill in in their comments on the blog, as well as organize the polls for the starter poll and the community choice awards. The only thing I really need is poll and comment participants : D TheBlueRogue @Wikia (profile)•(talk)•(email) 20:24, October 8, 2013 (UTC)

Didn't take me much time and decided to make the Kalos Starter poll. Here's the final look (needs to be scrolled down, the first idea is about the fights). Energy X 21:59, October 8, 2013 (UTC)

The starter poll looks great, man! Nice job. We post that on a blog and it'll be perfect. Appreciate the help, Energy X TheBlueRogue @Wikia (profile)•(talk)•(email) 23:24, October 8, 2013 (UTC)

Re: Poke-Programming!

Hi again! The recording was so much fun, all of us got a bit to carried away completely 'geeking out' about X and Y :D!

Anyway, the blog on the three XY starters is a nice idea, we could do that first so that it is a starter (bad pun intended) into our blogs. I believe EnergyX has already shown you some of the ideas and ways we could design it already. As I said before, the Create your own Gym blog seems really exciting, its something I know I have always wanted to do! And finally the Pokémon Choice Awards is a really neat idea. I never even thought of it! I have a few more topics which could be voted on: Best Generation of Pokémon (I-VI), most exciting new feature in XY, best Pokémon type, which region had the best gym leaders. I will message you if I think of anymore but these seem enough to get us going.

About the main page featuring we could totally do that. I'll ask our resident coding expert (Slaying) what ideas we could use for the template and how we could make everything work. Thanks! RainbowShifter 16:02, October 9, 2013 (UTC)

Re: Wikia Parent Filter

Hi again! Been playing Pokémon X like 24/7 and I just defeated the Champion so I may seem pretty hyper right now :D

I would love to do the Parent Filter but I am already doing the one for another wiki I am admin on, The Hunger Games Wiki, (they asked me first!) so I may not be able to get to doing this as quickly as I would like. Therefore you may be better asking one of the other admins to do it! And yes, we must battle *strokes Persian* RainbowShifter 17:36, October 29, 2013 (UTC)

Hey Jade, just wanna let you know that I have some free time today, so I'll fill out the Parent Filter for you guys!
Also, my 3DS Friend Code! :1650-1824-3743 TheBlueRogue @Wikia (profile)•(talk)•(email) 19:17, October 31, 2013 (UTC)
Just saw this! Thanks, and I just added you :) RainbowShifter 18:43, November 12, 2013 (UTC)

Re: X and Y Walkthrough

It looks really good, nice job! RainbowShifter 16:27, November 12, 2013 (UTC)

Glitch

Not sure if this happened to other wikis, but we have a problem with images. As seen here, there is one image, but when it is posted to an article (like the main page), a different image appears. Can it be fixed soon? Energy X 11:04, November 15, 2013 (UTC)

We were having some database issues last night, and a lot of wikis went into read-only mode, and a lot of images across our network were acting this way. Checking on the mainpage, I saw that image displays correctly now, I believe the issues should be resolved at this point, if you notice any other pictures looking out of whack, lemme know!

Heya

Would it be a possibility for me to get your Skype? Or if it's easier for you, add me?

I'd like to talk to you about a (sort of) important matter. c:

Your the first person I looked at a blog from! I really like your page too and thanks :D

Test

Hm, can I ask what this is about? Energy X 19:42, February 10, 2016 (UTC)

Hey there, Energy X. To celebrate Pokemon's upcoming 20th anniversary, we were looking into having a multi-round bracket tournament hosted here on a blog in the Pokemon wiki, it'll last about a month and it'll allow users to vote on their favorite starting Pokemon across the whole series. This google form was going to select the preliminary nominations for round one (since there are 19 starters and only 16 spots for the tournament). That poll will be up for a week and the first round starts on 2/19. How does that sound to you, think the community would enjoy it?
Sorry if using a test page like that is against the rules on the wiki, I was looking at making sure our new google form embed worked properly. If you have any other questions, let me know TheBlueRogue @Wikia •(profile)•(talk)•(doug@wikia-inc.com) 19:46, February 10, 2016 (UTC)

Oh, it's fine. In fact, we would appreciate it. Considering the anniversary is coming, it is *imperative* something is to be done to promote the franchise. Energy X 20:06, February 10, 2016 (UTC)

Awesome! The form will be posted on a blog this Friday to kick everything off. I'm looking forward to it! Any way you can promote the tournament around the wiki I'll appreciate. More votes the better, thanks so much dude : > TheBlueRogue @Wikia •(profile)•(talk)•(doug@wikia-inc.com) 20:16, February 10, 2016 (UTC)

Fandom

Hm, the latest update made the right rail's background transparent, with the Fandom section. It looks a bit odd; can it be made with the yellow background again? Or do I have to speak to someone else about that? Energy X 23:15, March 8, 2016 (UTC)

Looks normal to me over here, did you use CSS to revert to the previous look? Sounds like that was the best way to handle it : > TheBlueRogue @Wikia •(profile)•(talk)•(doug@wikia-inc.com) 01:19, March 9, 2016 (UTC)

Huh, interesting. I think there are some Pokémon already that have already augmentations (like Magearna). We shall see what will happen.

As for Pokémon GO, well, the content isn't much of a problem, only the images are lacking. Energy X 16:27, July 12, 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for the quick reply! I'll find some time to add images to existing pages. I was thinking it might not be a bad idea to create a "List of Pokemon in Pokemon GO" page that's formatted in a table like the items and such are. Do you know if GO information has been added to specific Pokemon pages yet? I'm thinking of creating a mockup of a Pokemon GO mainpage module to add to the mainpage. I'll create on my sandbox and link you soon. TheBlueRogue @Wikia •(profile)•(talk)•(doug@wikia-inc.com) 17:29, July 12, 2016 (UTC)
Sounds reasonable enough. Hm, can you do something about blocking, though? There is a user on the Discussions feature, who simply does not give up in making new accounts to annoy people there. All accounts that have "けいこ" name in them are the same account. Was hoping you could do something about it, though I did send the email to the Staff. Energy X 17:32, July 12, 2016 (UTC)
Thanks so much, I'll pass the word along on my end as well. I imagine moderating discussions right now is a huge pain, if you need me to step in and help clean up spam, let me know and I'll provide some extra manpower. TheBlueRogue @Wikia •(profile)•(talk)•(doug@wikia-inc.com) 17:35, July 12, 2016 (UTC)
Hey sorry to get myself in the middle of your talk but someone pointed me to it. I am the admin of the Pokemon GO Wikia and would love to cooperate together in any way you guys might interested.
