Re: Bulbapedia's editor in chief resigns: Editorial board member MAGNEDETH assumes he

I started on this site as just some guy looking for something to to, and three years later, I have been appointed Editor-in-Chief. I wasn't planning on making it here. I just edited pages that needed it, and helped out where I could, and then I was nominated by the users for adminship, and it was just one step after the other. Anyone can make it here (in 2 years from now), just keep at it.

So what can you expect out of me? TTEchidna aimed to make this site a more attractive, and more organized website for any and all information we could cram into it. And he did. So what can I do? Well, I want to help you. While things are pretty and organized, I'm not quite sure they're as smooth as they can be. Lets get the information to you, the user, faster and more effectively. However, we can't let quality suffer. Pages should be full of content. Not to say all of our pages are light on content, but how many of our 18,000+ articles are feature content material? Not even 100. Lets fix that.

The future is now, it is Generation V, and I'm now sitting at one of the busiest desks on the internet. I won't lie, this won't be easy, but I do like a challenge, and I have a lot of people here to help me out. We will do this. You folks, the users, have supported me once, and now it is my turn to return the favor.

TTE, I know I've said this to you in private, but I want to publicly thank you for all your hard work. And please forgive me for the fight we got in over my user page XD

Best of luck DETH. Break a leg.

Just curious..do any of you guys get paid for this? Bulbagarden/Pedia/News generate a lot of traffic so I can imagine the whole website generating some decent money from the ads..

No one gets paid. Our staff contributes to the community and devote all their effort and time, without anything in return but the satisfaction of a job well done.

Congratulations, DETH. You deserved this. And thank you TTE for everything you've contributed to Bulbapedia these past few years.

Pretty sure they do it for free. Which shows how much they love Pokemon and Bulbagarden since they do so much for it.

Thank You TTEchidna for all the hard you put into making Bulbapedia as good as t can get.

Congrats to MAGNEDETH and best of luck!

ILet me say that I read your userpage and I enjoyed reading the article on the ones for Pokemon do-overs and the sprite comparisons for R/B/Y, though it's sad that you ended that article after Magneton.....

We will miss you TTEchidna, besides, Bulbapedia is the best wiki ever and it's better than Wikia wikis since they changed the format of the site to make it look a lot less like Wikipedia, and I hate the new format of Wikia, not to mention all those advertisements on wikia that's what makes Bulbapedia better than the other wikis.....

Farewell TTE. You'll always be remembered as the guy who pretty-fied Bulbapedia with your vibrant colors and roundy-corners.

And congrats to Deth.

Well, not being involved in Bulbapedia's development, I can only congratulate Magendeth on the contributions he will do on Bulbapedia.

Thanks for reading.

Hahahaha well done my friend.


Anyways, I'd like to congratulate Mangedeth for being promoted! You asked for advice on the new direction of Bulbapedia, and I'd like to see Dreamworld Art appear alongside Sugimori Art at the top of Species pages when all of the Dreamworld Art is revealed... I'm aware that it might make the pages seem too cluttered, but it's just an idea :p I'm just a sucker for artwork.
