List of editing blocked templates which the old "switch" / moz-border-radius is being used.
***Requires change to the rounded corners template {{roundy}}***

Examples of use of the template:
{{roundy|10px}}
{{roundy|60px}}
{{roundy|1em}}

PS: If you give me the permission to edit these pages I'll do that for you.

Here's the list of what I found for now. The most important ones are in the top of the list (click "show spoiler"):

Re: Official Bulbapedia suggestion/idea/problem thread

Movelists are getting redone for Gen V.

500 screenshots that we have to redo every single generation is not fun. We already have to redo all of the sprites. By the way, it's different for Lyra/Ethan/Dawn/Lucas. None of them are the same height.

What about the pages needing {{roundy}}?
Are you going to give me the ability to edit them or fixing yourself?

The Golden Bulbasaur Templates are, IIRC, halfway through a template merge. I need to look at that to figure out where I got up to.

Ok, but when?
What about the other kinds of templates I cited?

I want things fixed for Webkit and Presto browsers now.

Re: Official Bulbapedia suggestion/idea/problem thread

Please calm down. It took fifty edits and almost one hour for me to just do the GBA templates. The staff template also needs to be changed over to the new version and I will get to that when I have time.

So apart from from that sysop tag and the movelist templates which will get a total revamp in the coming months, only the babel tags need updating and I'm late for my real life. Don't be such a whiner, and wait someone to get round to it.

Re: Official Bulbapedia suggestion/idea/problem thread

Please at least apply {{roundy}} on the first three pages of the list (or give me the permission to do so).

http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Template:User_Template
http://bulbanews.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Template:Rborder
http://bulbanews.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Template:Rbs

That would fix all user tags and Rborder / Rbs are used in various tables.
Pleeeeease? :bawling:
Haha give permission. Funny. Anyways, the templates (including the ones you linked) will be roundy soon. Just wait the editors and staff are busy with other things on the 'Pedia.

It's trust and that they have a handful of people handpicked to the jobs.

People have a life outside the forums and the internet. Also the things don't have to be changed right away, like RIGHT FUCKING NOW..so be patient and don't insult the 'Pedia staff.

Re: Official Bulbapedia suggestion/idea/problem thread

I'm not insulting anyone.
But you used a word not very welcome on some forums...

Are you part of 'Pedia staff? Do you have admin rights?
Could you please roundy things in this f. moment (a.k.a. right now)? :-D

No I'm just forum staff and I said be patient because you screaming at people to do it wont do anything, they'll change it when they get around to it.

Re: Official Bulbapedia suggestion/idea/problem thread

Plus I quite prefer to do an entire revamp at the same time as roundification. It takes time. It's not just an automated replacement.

Re: Official Bulbapedia suggestion/idea/problem thread

But it wouldn't take 30 minutes to roundy these templates...
It would take less than 2 minutes to roundy the first three templates on the list. Or are you going to change (revamp) the way userboxes works? I don't think so... You're going to revamp Pokémon articles related templates,not userboxes...

PS: It isn't what I want: it's what is needed.

Re: Official Bulbapedia suggestion/idea/problem thread

So, I have a suggestion regarding learnsets and how they're displayed.

Put simply, I think we should include a section (where necessary) that covers moves that can be learned by a previous evolution of a Pokemon. For instance, Raichu can legally know Slam, but it has to learn it as a Pikachu. As a result, Raichu's article is missing a number of moves it can potentially know, and to me this makes it seem incomplete.

Now, a good counter-argument is that these other moves are covered in the Pichu and Pikachu articles, and since Raichu itself doesn't learn Slam, it shouldn't be included. However... we already have egg moves in Raichu's article. Raichu can never learn Encore but its pre-evos can be born with it; we still have this in the article. I don't see how the moves I mentioned are all that different. It would be nice to have access to a Pokemon's entire potential moveset in the articles.

I know this is far from a priority, but it's something you might like to consider when the time comes to revamp the learnsets.

Re: Official Bulbapedia suggestion/idea/problem thread

Definitely awesome suggestion, it isn't very good having to open the articles of each Pokémon's evolutions to check out the moves it can learn at a certain level at and at a certain form...
