When Bulbapedia's wiki pages are viewed in a half-window (e.g. using windows-left or windows-right or aero snap functionality in general), the right-most part of the wiki page is uninteractible. Example:

Eevee (Pokémon) - Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia

In the infobox on the right, right under EEVEE where it says Evolution Pokemon, the left half of the word 'evolution' functions as a hyperlink, but anywhere to the right of the letter i (anywhere on the page, not just the infobox) is uninteractible. If I expand the size of the window, more of the page on the right becomes interactible until eventually the ad frame reappears, and everything works again.

It definitely seems to be an issue with that ad frame on the right of the page interfering with clicking on stuff on the page when the webpage isn't viewed near full resolution.

OS: Windows 10 x64
Resolution: 1920 x 1080
This issue was noticed first in Chrome (version doesn't seem to matter), but the issue can be replicated in Edge and Firefox.
Eyyyy this issue's fixed now, I think! Thank you!

The issue that Rhorbarius pointed out with Bulbapedia's right side ad frame also is affecting the Archives as well.

Code has been added to our CSS files to remedy this issue. You may need to do a cache-bypassing refresh in order for the code to apply on your browser(s)

Firefox / Safari: Hold Shift while clicking Reload, or press either Ctrl-F5 or Ctrl-R (⌘-R on a Mac)
Google Chrome: Press Ctrl-Shift-R (⌘-Shift-R on a Mac)
Internet Explorer: Hold Ctrl while clicking Refresh, or press Ctrl-F5
Opera: Clear the cache in Tools → Preferences

I've been experiencing the same right-side ad frame issue on Bulbanews posts.
It should have been fixed on the Archives and BN at the same time. If you haven't, you may want to try the refresh methods mentioned above or clearing your cache.

I've tried both in different browsers and it didn't fix it. Specifically, I'm talking about pages like this one.

There was a conflicting piece of code, which has been remedied. Try a cache-bypassing refresh now.

I'm wondering if Bulbapedia would be interested to do a Pokemon Go section trying to track "research" on locations and frequency of pokemon?

I realize this would be a massive and ongoing undertaking (akin to a real research endeavor) with a lot of logistics to work out, but I can't be the only one with a taste for research!

So, 2 questions:
1. Is the community interested in trying to do something like this?
2. If so, admins: what can I do to get involved?

The latest Pokémon figures from ARTFX have included some pretty neat character artwork such as these ones.
I see no one has uploaded them despite being out for a while, so I gotta ask, is there any reason for not doing so?
I want to upload them but I want to be sure first.

There seems to be a problem with the Archive's cache. I've tried using the purge function but nothing improves. The issue is that categories aren't updating. An example would be this: File:Spr b 5b 557 s.png - Bulbagarden Archives . It is included in the Category:Images needing to be animated despite the template which puts it in that category being removed almost a month ago. Another would be this one: File:OPJ01 error 1.png - Bulbagarden Archives . The file was moved from the name "Fang.png" about a week ago, but it still is in the files that need to be moved-- in the position where Fang.png was before being moved.

This is a known issue resulting from the changeover to HTTPS.

Adil protected BW108's header image ages ago and I've always wanted to change it to this since the current picture looks sort of empty.
