Re: Official BULBAPEDIA suggestion/idea/problem thread

I know this isn't exactly the most important thing we are worrying about now but would like to ask it before I forget it.

For Userspace there is a user tag called User Band. Well, there is not one for singer unless I am totally blind. I "tampered" with it on my userpage and made it so it said singer. I was wondering if someone could add it to the site as a user tag or at least tell me how to.

I believe you'd just have to create the page "Template:User Singer". But get TTE's permission just in case. (Or some other admin.)

Alakazam's base stat for special attack and special defense are listed as 105 and 155, which make its total 535. Shouldn't they be 135, 85, and 490 respectively?

To get it made into a full usertag, you must first make it in your userspace, in accordance with the [bp=Bulbapedia:Usertag policy]Usertag policy[/bp]. If it gets used by at leaast 5 people and is approved by at least 2 administators it can get moved to the templatespace. Also, don't bother TTE with this kind of thing.

The [bp=Template:NPC]NPC template[/bp] doesn't seem to be working with [bp]Template:Nav[/bp], as noted on [bp]Professor Oak[/bp]'s page, as well as [bp=Blue (game)]his grandson[/bp].

Re: Official BULBAPEDIA suggestion/idea/problem thread

[bp]C-Gear[/bp] is create-protected, but is on the Main Page under "Currently needed articles". Can someone unprotect it (unless it needs to stay protected, in which case it can be removed from "Currently needed articles"). It seems that TTE protected it because that was the 3rd time it was deleted.

Hrm. Didn't notice that before. Guess we'll kill the nav on those pages.

Now autoconfirmed. Don't screw up. I hate having to keep promises.

Re: Official BULBAPEDIA suggestion/idea/problem thread

Since the PDW artwork has appeared, i have a suggestion:

Put the images on the main picture of the pokemon. Im using Pdw Pikachu as a example:



It's the same artwork as the japansese Pokemon Centre merchandise.

Re: Official BULBAPEDIA suggestion/idea/problem thread

I have a suggestion. It's really simple, but it would probably be a good idea. I can't even imagine why this hasn't been done yet.

A pronunciation guide for Pokemon names? I just find that some names are hard to pronounce, or I just end up saying them wrong.

It's been done before. Most pages actually have the pronunciation parameter filled, but it does nothing. There were too many arguments about what the correct pronunciation was, even when we took them straight from the Official Pokémon Handbook. Not to mention some Pokémon like Regice that the anime had given 2 different pronunciations.

And ignore the rest of the artwork? I think not. We'll try to do something eventually to show them all off.

Anime? How about the games, too? Stadium with "poh-neat-uh" instead of "poh-nee-tah" as it's said everywhere else, or "ee-kins" instead of "eh-kans". Anime cries and game cries are something I want eventually. Anime cries, Archaic's said are questionable legal ground, so don't be looking for them anytime soon, while game cries we have on the server and are just waiting for a time when A: Archaic's not busy and B: the server's not gonna blow up to implement them. Last two times we tried, the whole site just died.

I've modified the interwiki prefix so it should link properly. However, it may take some time to take effect.

Can't you put the sugimori and DW art on a rotating cycle like you do Arceus' page?

Re: Official BULBAPEDIA suggestion/idea/problem thread

Like TTE said, there's other artwork as well, and we want to come up with a way to incorporate all of them to each species' page in the future, so the DW art will have to wait. Besides, you can easily access all the artwork of a species on the archives.

Re: Official BULBAPEDIA suggestion/idea/problem thread

Sugi artwork has a lot more detail than the DW art. i dont think we need to show them that often once we have all the Sugi artwork.
