Can you please not move draft articles to the mainspace? As you can see, I deleted the last article because it wasn't relevant to us, but it had already been moved to the mainspace, had a forum post made by Bulbabot, etc. The drafts are there so admins can move them. Thanks. --Argy 15:15, 24 December 2008 (UTC)

Ok, you guys should figure out a way to make it that only admins can do it!--Mew a.k.a. Prmatt11 15:18, 24 December 2008 (UTC)

You can now simply insert {{subst:Welcome}} into a new user's talk page, and it will display a customized version of this. --Argy 16:26, 29 December 2008 (UTC)

Okey-dokey! What happened to the subst one?--Mew a.k.a. Prmatt11 16:28, 29 December 2008 (UTC)
Wait, that was on BP. Nevermind!--Mew a.k.a. Prmatt11 16:50, 29 December 2008 (UTC)

I reverted your edits because they weren't necessary. The other site's title translation is irrelevant since it's not official, and it's implied already that the episodes will confirm or refute the rumors. Also, don't use first- (us, we, me) or second-person (you), please. --Argy 20:54, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

Agreed. Thanks for the Bulbanews tips, plus I thought we could mention that they mis-titled it, more of a giveaway that it was fake.--Mew a.k.a. Prmatt11 00:46, 3 January 2009 (UTC)
I wouldn't say their translation was inaccurate; it's just different. --Argy 17:01, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

They weren't down

Technically, some people had some things some of the time. I personally had news and archives most of the time, and the wiki was going on and off. Some people only had the wiki, while others had nothing at all. Just to let you know what was happening. Maverick Nate 14:07, 16 January 2009 (UTC)

Ok, I did the workaround now, but I'll post a message that they are periodically going in and out.--Mew a.k.a. Prmatt11 16:50, 16 January 2009 (UTC)
There have been done having time outs. I'll remove the message. Maverick Nate 17:40, 16 January 2009 (UTC)
I'm still gettin' them!--Mew a.k.a. Prmatt11 17:47, 16 January 2009 (UTC)

The countdown

For some reason, it's not working correctly in IE. I love it, yes, but... can you make it so it works in IE? TTEchidna 05:17, 5 February 2009 (UTC)

Workidie in IE 7--Mew a.k.a. Prmatt11 01:27, 7 February 2009 (UTC)

Something useful

Please check your private messages on the forums in a few minutes. --Argy 02:03, 7 February 2009 (UTC)

ok...--Mew a.k.a. Prmatt11 02:06, 7 February 2009 (UTC)

Front page masthead

The spacing between the site name, tagline and Bulbasaur pic look awkward now. Why did you change what I had written? --Argy 20:23, 8 February 2009 (UTC)

Hmm... it looks odd on Windows, but not on your mac. We are both using firefox, but it still looks funky. I was also trying to change it from the <span> type stuff back to it's usual CSS.--Mew a.k.a. Prmatt11 21:39, 8 February 2009 (UTC)


Was there a reason you just copied the face-off press release instead of re-writing it objectively? When press releases are posted, they need to have that as the source type (instead of crediting yourself with a column, since you technically didn't write it) and have {{verbatim}} at the top of the article (where the similar {{rumor}} tag goes in those situations). As it is now, it's written like an advertisement (which is what the press release essentially is). --Argy 03:18, 10 February 2009 (UTC)

Oh, shoot, it posted? Ahh! I didn't mean to! It was open on my computer, and FF asked if I wanted to save my work, I said yes, and it posted.--Mew a.k.a. Prmatt11 22:43, 10 February 2009 (UTC)


I fail to see why you removed the red Bulbapedia links. Red links are good; they encourage development. Even when they're to another site, when someone sees a red link they may be inspired to write the article. --Politoed666 02:31, 13 February 2009 (UTC)

But, out of the 1% of Bulbagarden users that use the news, only 5% of them would actually bother to write one. That, my friend, is .05% of the BMG users.--Mew a.k.a. Prmatt11 02:33, 13 February 2009 (UTC)
But why remove them? The links, I mean. --Politoed666 02:47, 13 February 2009 (UTC)
No one really bothers to write them, as they click on things to learn about the subject.--Mew a.k.a. Prmatt11 17:22, 13 February 2009 (UTC)
I think for Bulbanews, the links serve to provide additional context. They're handy so we don't have to explain every single concept, item or translation. Red links will lead people to a dead end, so they're not providing that information. And I think people who would care enough to create a new article from a red link on Bulbanews would have already been on Bulbapedia. --Argy 18:08, 13 February 2009 (UTC)

Toys "R" Us

Careful; a store clerk or employee is in no way a "spokesperson" for the entire company. --Argy 08:39, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

I meant a spokesperson for that specific location.--Mew a.k.a. Prmatt11 16:35, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

Site things

Do you know how to get rid of that big space that is underneath the taglines on articles now? Also, if you have time, I think it would be useful if you could write a short guide or list of the link templates and how to use them. I think people would be more likely to use them if they understood how they work. You don't have to do that; it's just a suggestion. --Argy 01:57, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

I thimpk I got it.--Mew a.k.a. Prmatt11 16:57, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

HALP, the front page won't update! --Argy 21:03, 7 March 2009 (UTC)

What do you mean? I see all updated... let me check time...--Mew a.k.a. Prmatt11 23:20, 7 March 2009 (UTC)

I was just going to tell you the new way This week looks on the front is good, but now it's messed up! News in brief is under This week, and all the episodes are under Developing stories. At least on my screen. --Argy 18:37, 17 March 2009 (UTC)


What's the story behind your user page? P.S. "Mormon" not "Morman." 8D --Argy 06:08, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

Social Studies project. Forgot to delete.--Mew a.k.a. Prmatt11 23:24, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

Article Deletion

Why'd you delete my article? --DoctorOak 21:52, 27 March 2009 (UTC)

It was not relevant to this website. Pokecharms is in no way related to the Bulbagarden community, except for the fact that we are both fan sites.--Mew a.k.a. Prmatt11 21:54, 27 March 2009 (UTC)
So the fact that we're affiliates and I supported Bulbapedia and Bulbanews through from their beginnings has no relation to Bulbagarden?
And I'd love to hear your reasons for why there shouldn't be an news article posted up about an upcoming Pokemon event just because it's not being officially organised by Nintendo. --DoctorOak 21:57, 27 March 2009 (UTC)
DoctorOak, I am sorry, the article is indeed relevant to our readers and should not have been deleted. The fact that you're working with a major retailer, HMV, is reason enough for its relevance. --Argy 01:12, 28 March 2009 (UTC)
Oh, sorry, I didn't see the part about HMV. Sorry...--Mew a.k.a. Prmatt11 01:58, 28 March 2009 (UTC)

...what do you mean "should be good"?

You messed up the {{game}} template! Pokémon Pokémon Platinum links to the nonexistent BP page "Pokémon Pokémon Platinum Version". You used "you"! And... all-caps... eh. That's just eh. Also... via TRU just sounds... odd.

In closing, I KEEL YOO. TTEchidna 03:23, 10 April 2009 (UTC)

Where did I use "you"? Where was it in all-caps? Sorry 'bout the template. It does not sound too odd... maybe this will help you be here more!--Mew a.k.a. Prmatt11 14:00, 10 April 2009 (UTC)

The article

Uhmm, I was creating the article while not noticing Trainer-c already made one. Then, my article has more information than the other one, while there are errors in Trainer-c's article, that's why. Look closely. It has no tagline, and has short piece of information. Thanks. Ҝəυzø8 12:13, 24 April 2009 (UTC)

Kay.--Mew a.k.a. Prmatt11 13:34, 24 April 2009 (UTC)
It has no tagline. Ҝəυzø8 13:38, 24 April 2009 (UTC)

The issue last night...

... Was caused by someone using {{bp}} in an article blurb. When we noticed the front page exploding, TTE & I immediately when to the template level, assuming that may be the source of the issue. It wasn't, ovbiously. However, your color scheme test probably should have been done on a test page, and not the front page. Sorry for any problems Prmatt. - Kogoro | Talk to me - 04:23, 27 April 2009 (UTC)

Ok. Thanks for figuring that out. So it wasn't me. I knew I never murdered anything!--Mew a.k.a. Prmatt11 11:53, 27 April 2009 (UTC)

Back to learning the basics

There are these things called categories. Every page needs them. Learn them, love them, use them, be their designated driver when they drink too much. Make sure that from now on, every page you ever make has the appropriate categories on them, kay? Maverick Nate 23:44, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

Ok... but I didn't know what to categorize those recent ones in, but, if you look, I just added some categories to over 180 pages! (via template, of course)--Mew a.k.a. Prmatt11 00:35, 30 April 2009 (UTC)


Set the size to 120px. I assure you, it will work. Take a look: DP105.png and HD: DP125.png. Ҝəυzø8 11:51, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

Thanks, let me try...--Mew a.k.a. Prmatt11 16:32, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
Argy decided to delete the image for now, because of the error. The logo can be seen at the 'pedia anyways. Ҝəυzø8 12:40, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

Hey Prmatt

Don't you think that this is a little more informative, and a more proper news article than this? I have to say, I really don't like a news article that pretty much just says "Check the image over here →" it really seems lazy, and un-news style to me... - Kogoro | Talk to me - 16:48, 12 May 2009 (UTC)

Watch.--Mew a.k.a. Prmatt11 17:10, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
Thanks Kogsie for watching it while I was asleep :) Also, there's a rumor from neoFAQ which states that the release will be on September 11, as well as their will be a new key item: a skateboard. It was posted in Japanese board.These are still rumors though. Ҝəυzø8 02:04, 13 May 2009 (UTC)
Give me a link. But don't post anything yet.--Mew a.k.a. Prmatt11 15:37, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

The IMG template

Yeah. So. Stop creating it. It's pointless, since all it does is something the wiki does automatically. Additionally, it takes out a the ability for a user's preferences to determine the default size of the image without a size call. And why would we want the file name as the caption? I know you have more Bulbanews expertise than me, but I'm still technically above you. Since Nate can't tell you to stop, I am, since I agree with him. Thanks. --Politoed666 23:17, 16 May 2009 (UTC)

Let me edit the template. And the reason it was linking to the image was due to server issues.--Mew a.k.a. Prmatt11 00:52, 17 May 2009 (UTC)
You do realize that your template doesn't let anyone change the size? Maverick Nate 01:06, 17 May 2009 (UTC)
First you get mad at me because I change the size, and then go opposite? Let me try something...--Mew a.k.a. Prmatt11 01:07, 17 May 2009 (UTC)

Edit summaries

These are meant to be used to briefly convey what you've changed, so people in the RC or history can see what you've done without having to check the diff. Some people leave them blank, and that's okay, but this was out of line and uncalled for. I certainly hope this isn't the way things are done on Bulbanews, because it certainly wouldn't be tolerated on the 'pedia. Actually, it isn't the way things are done here, per your blocking policy. Maybe you need to read over that. — THE TROM — 23:35, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, sometimes I'm out of it. I'll try to do better.--Mew a.k.a. Prmatt11 23:49, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
Good boy. Don't make me make you block yourself. :P — THE TROM — 23:53, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
I would do that. I think I did once... Oh, and the MN stands for Maverick Nate, referring to why I got irreasonably banned.--Mew a.k.a. Prmatt11 23:56, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
I'm fully aware of that, and the fact that you are personally attacking an administrator makes the whole matter a darn sight worse. There's actually a policy about image wars, which you were involved in, hence the block. The block time was appropriate, and in accordance with said policy. The intent of it is to encourage you to do no more warring. Hopefully, the message got across. — THE TROM — 00:02, 12 June 2009 (UTC)
