Reminder: ProfileTags

Hey! I hope you're doing well and alright! I understand you're busy and there might be many more important things, but I'd just like to give a gentle reminder about adding the roles back on MediaWiki:ProfileTags. --      TheHacktivist42         talk       contribs       Badge-DiscussionsModerator.svg   11:50, 11 November 2020 (UTC)

EpisodeBox temp.

Could you change the colour of the temp. to reflect the wiki's theme please? :) Ellis99 Volcanion 12:31, 13 November 2020 (UTC)

Here you go. Same for these too also. Ellis99 Volcanion 13:30, 13 November 2020 (UTC)
Now that I think about it. X adds the colouring to the main infobox temp. See here. By adding the colour there, it affects all the other infobox temps. If you can't do it on the infobox temp., best to ask X how to do it. Ellis99 Volcanion 14:07, 13 November 2020 (UTC)
As I've said. Probably best to ask X, even though he doesn't like the changes for some reason... It would be nice if the theme of the wiki changed for Christmas, but it'll probably better to do that next year instead of this year, once things are sorted here. Ellis99 Volcanion 15:25, 13 November 2020 (UTC)

Nominations

I can't remember quite but there was some problem with having nomination process like that in Discussions.

Regardless, do as you wish. Energy X 14:18, 14 November 2020 (UTC)

Hey, tonight to idk

I think Harsh made a point on posts, so you know. I am going to go through this old account on here, via this one : Micah and lock up all the posts we made before from 2020 from last month to idk say when the discussion was made, okay?

But so you know, alright? I know a lot needs to be done and I know some were fun but. So er? Wish me luck? I found some "interesting posts" on to "reviving" in the future reason some user's have asked about a trading thread? So I think it would be wise to get a new one up.

But I won't start till the new year on posts, 2021, alright? Reason is a lot of down time is needed and look through, okay? Glad I found:

21 questions game and so on still looking though in case you need ideas on games as such, alright? Gtg for now later...-Trainer Micah 2 (talk) 15:59, 16 November 2020 (UTC)

Changes

Could you take a moment and vote on this, please? Energy X 10:57, 25 November 2020 (UTC)

Complain

Hello there, seeing what happened at the complaints post, it's clear the @Kaypig is falsely accusing you and the wiki rules itself. I think some actions should be taken against this. His accusations are not right. Crazy Keirra (talk) 14:30, 25 November 2020 (UTC)

Reply

It's OK, sometimes I get messages and don't reply them immediately. As for the notification, I'm aware of certain features like that, I just don't remember which page I have to access. Energy X 20:17, 26 November 2020 (UTC)

Discord Verification

I can't receive the Verification. And by the way what is a verification on discord? It says go to your inbox or spam in Gmail and I went there, it wasn't there. Bye. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Pokémonfans24 (talkcontribs)

New Rule

I think there should be a new rule for those who vote on "Requests for User Rights". I think those who are primarily on the Discussions side of the wiki can only vote for Disc. Mods., while those primarily on main side of the wiki with pages and editing can only for roles that affect this site of the wiki. What do you think? Ellis99 Volcanion 12:59, 5 December 2020 (UTC)

Sorry, I forgot about this rule :) Ellis99 Volcanion 14:19, 11 December 2020 (UTC)

Mod ProfileTags

Hey, I hope you're doing well. I was wondering if we could add custom ProfileTags for D-Mods, C-Mods and Rollbacks like we have on the alt Wiki (you know, not like Discussions Moderator and Content Moderator, something Pokemon-customised.) --TheHacktivist42talk  •  contribs  Badge-DiscussionsModerator.svg  16:08, 13 December 2020 (UTC)

Cool, thanks!
P.S: you could use a better signature... --TheHacktivist42talk  •  contribs  Badge-DiscussionsModerator.svg  17:19, 14 December 2020 (UTC)
Looks cool! Though, shouldn't the signature contain the username... I mean, we all know you well, but suppose a newbie comes and clicks that link, and finds that Saksham Mishra redirects to Alan Sycamore... I mean, wouldn't it be kinda weird! The signature is overall great though! --TheHacktivist42talk  •  contribs  Badge-DiscussionsModerator.svg  07:49, 16 December 2020 (UTC)

Goh's Cinderace

In order to present our information in the best possible manner, as well as to remove any possible redundancies (having the exact same info put on different places), I have made two new versions of the Pokémon infobox and the Move box, as seen on Goh's Cinderace page. Mind that I took several hours to make the new changes: it's not just about making it to one infobox, but to also craft it for any future uses (a property called scalability). And that's what engineering is about.

Just before you say why I am saying these things, it's just to show that in order to get the best results, you need to spend a lot of time developing this. On another site, they have even things as importing data from other articles (which is what I am waiting to be enabled in here). Making new stuff is hard, yes, but do remember that editors such as you or any new one can then use such templates quite easier.

As a final word, if you have the time, you can implement these new templates on pages that use Template:Pokémon Character Box - but only for Pokémon that are like Goh's Cinderace (caught and/or evolved; not hatched or given away). I haven't finished the movebox template (the colorization), but it shouldn't take too long. Do note the new names of parameters. I would strongly suggest to preview your changes, like a Pokémon that evolves can have its type changed - which means to add "|2-type =" and "|2-type2=" parameters.

Infobox Colouring

Could you please change the colouring of the main infobox as it appears pink :) Ellis99 Volcanion 14:49, 28 December 2020 (UTC)

Here is the link :) Ellis99 Volcanion 13:09, 8 January 2021 (UTC)
Also, can you remove the colouring of Billvee since he/she has been demoted please? Thanks :) Ellis99 Volcanion 19:46, 8 January 2021 (UTC)
Oh, okay then :) Ellis99 Volcanion 11:47, 9 January 2021 (UTC)

I was thinking... could you give Sky a colour? She/he otherwise looks like a regular user, when we know she isn't. Ellis99 Volcanion 10:40, 16 January 2021 (UTC)

Sorry, I meant Sly (because the keys have spaces between them, I sometimes misspell a word when a letter is next to the one I was meant to use) :) Ellis99 Volcanion 10:36, 22 January 2021 (UTC)

Demote

I've seen that you've demoted Billvee. I do understand the inactivity reason, though it wouldn't hurt to send them a message. Energy X 16:58, 3 January 2021 (UTC)

It's OK, just common courtesy to tell them that. Might even spark their interest in having them return to the site, even if it is a flicker of hope for that. Energy X 08:27, 4 January 2021 (UTC)

Hey, just a simple question

Does this picture look inappropriate to you because others think it does.

Just asking.

I can of course approve it because you have some personal issues. Now with the two main admins going to leave, we should find a solution before the start of this wiki falling apart comes. Dominoes I guess? 03:58, 23 January 2021 (UTC)

Thanks for the suggestion. Dominoes I guess? 12:22, 28 January 2021 (UTC)

I agree, but why not rename your account? Is it because someone is stalking you? Anyway, it's a shame as for the reason stated by Dom above. When it comes to users with rights, only Dom and I are the most prolific editors here, bar X (even though I edit for two days a week). It's shame Lord doesn't edit that much these days. Ellis99 Volcanion 12:11, 23 January 2021 (UTC)

Yeah sure, go for it. Can hardly not give my approval, especially due to personal reasons. Hope to see you back soon and take care.--Lordranged7 (talk) 20:51, 27 January 2021 (UTC)

Unfortunately, your link comes up as blocked. Ellis99 Volcanion 09:23, 12 February 2021 (UTC)

It isn't a template, but just class="article-table". The style is used on other pages, such as Petal and Exp. Candy. Ellis99 Volcanion 10:20, 12 February 2021 (UTC)

User

Maybe next time show screenshots or something to prove that? Not that I don't trust you but to show others the truth, so you can say that user can spread lies. Energy X 12:39, 24 January 2021 (UTC)

Block

Didn't expect you to pop out like that. Anyways, thanks so much. Dominoes I guess? 04:24, 3 February 2021 (UTC)

Thanks again. Dominoes I guess? 03:26, 8 February 2021 (UTC)

Sure. Dominoes I guess? 03:06, 13 February 2021 (UTC)

Font

While I could change the font, I would like to first know the answer why should we do that. If it is just your personal preference, you can just simply have your browser zoom out the page (which is applied to the entire site) so the font looks smaller. Energy X 12:05, 6 February 2021 (UTC)

Well, remember, having smaller font can mean that reading quality can be decreased. You could try asking others about this issue first, so if there is a number of people that find the font too big, it can be reduced. For now, you can just zoom out the pages or use css for that. Energy X 20:26, 6 February 2021 (UTC)

Re:Minor edit

I don't mind you transferring rights but I think it will be best to transfer rights once you're done with this account, ready to close it, and using the other account instead of having two accounts with the same rights. Feel free to message me when you are so far.--Lordranged7 (talk) 19:52, 19 February 2021 (UTC)

New Fandom blocking policy

Hey again Alan Sycamore, I wanted to bring this new policy to your attention. Essentially, blocks going forward can only be made if they violate your wiki's stated local guidelines, which must be readily discoverable, e.g. via a TopNav or Main Page link (you can also block for ToU violations like vandalism regardless). If your existing policies are well-surfaced & cover most block reasons then you should be fine, but if not, or if you're not sure, I'd recommend checking over your policies to make sure you can still block as usual. Let me know if you have any questions.
UrsuulTalkWRDate4:27 PM Monday, February 22, 2021 (UTC)

Color

May you explain more precisely about which color you have changed? Dominoes I guess? 08:08, 24 February 2021 (UTC)

:thonk: Okay then. Dominoes I guess? 11:25, 24 February 2021 (UTC)

Mods

Well this all seems reasonably fair. Did you ask those people if they wanted to be mods, though? Energy X 09:34, 24 February 2021 (UTC)

OK then, no objections. Energy X 11:18, 24 February 2021 (UTC)

Trouble in moderation and any tips you can give

Hey Saki it's been some while how is everything? I wanted to ask to see if there has been anything trouble on me lately in discussions? If there has been can you give any ideals so i can change? Also has the guidelines changed any i may need a copy if you have one?

But so you know i wanted to ask and see if there's anything troublesome in moderation and seeing if there is anew set of guidelines which i can have?

If you can let me know i am checking around and it is amazing as you said with Troll activity and so on. I mean come on after i leave this Dumb man user etc numbers in his account(s) comes on here and messes around from 10:30 am to 5:00 or 6:00 pm when i am inactive but as i said in reply i won't be leaving inactive today due to i am watching stuff on 3ds and so on. okay?

Meaning i'll maybe go inactive but i know Oddish Fanfic and Steven will do a super job while i am away. When i come back online on that time above in GMT CST time frame i'll check in discussions and do a little work before i sleep alright?

And hey some godzilla user talked to me on duscussions complaints and blocking can you or someone watch my talk page (In case he responds from my message i sent the user?) Thanks if needed i will talk to you maybe tonight alright?Trainer Micah 2 (talk) 12:17, 24 February 2021 (UTC)

Poll

You can't exactly use a poll to make a vote. Please make a proper forum discussion for that, so people can discuss and propose new themes if necessary. Energy X 17:59, 24 February 2021 (UTC)

Ah, alright, I was worried haha. I guess now that it's spring in our areas more user's are coming in/out so i see okay then.. Cool to see on the fandom getting anew color theme...

That is cool.. So you know... Thanks!-Trainer Micah 2 (talk) 14:13, 25 February 2021 (UTC)

It means that the theme should be reverted once the 22nd March comes. Ellis99 Volcanion 13:01, 26 February 2021 (UTC)

Good to hear :) It, for sure, gives you enough time for what you need to do :) Ellis99 Volcanion 13:08, 26 February 2021 (UTC)
Sorry, I should've said April 22. Ellis99 Volcanion 13:48, 5 March 2021 (UTC)

Color Policy

Should there be a policy on whether or not we use names or numbers for colors? Over the years, I've seen temps. use number and names in the same temp. Ellis99 Volcanion 12:30, 27 February 2021 (UTC)

Design

I'm sorry, but I don't have any ideas of designing a logo. Dominoes I guess? 04:06, 28 February 2021 (UTC)

I'm doing well, hope you are too. Unfortunately, I do not.--Lordranged7 (talk) 11:33, 28 February 2021 (UTC)

Unfortunately, I don't :( As for the color policy, it's simply that should we use color codes or use color names for templates, instead of using a mix of both. Ellis99 Volcanion 10:29, 5 March 2021 (UTC)

I've talked to X about it and h didn't care either way. Ellis99 Volcanion 11:11, 5 March 2021 (UTC)

Just had an idea. Possibly a minimalist-looking logo. Don't go for any gradient colours, they look awful, especially in this day and age. Ellis99 Volcanion 12:58, 5 March 2021 (UTC)

Policy

OK. Just maybe rename it to "Sysop policy", to cover administrators/rollbacks/mods. Staff policy may sound it for the Fandom staff, which we are not. Energy X 10:33, 9 March 2021 (UTC)

Policies

All of it sounds fine, maybe only just remove the bit about block history. I don't think it is rather fair for people that made one mistake or so. Energy X 10:01, 8 March 2021 (UTC)

I'm not Lordranged, but

If I remember correctly, you can self-demote yourself. Dominoes I guess? 09:23, 13 March 2021 (UTC)

All done.--Lordranged7 (talk) 12:14, 13 March 2021 (UTC)
