I'm fixing the images to make them 1080x1920. Kittystyler talk 5:54, August 21, 2021 (UTC)

VA Pages

Oops, sorry that I haven't responded. What do you mean by "VA pages"? I don't have any idea what you were referring to, so it would be nice to give one example of the page with your new layout.

P.S. I caught a fever this Monday which seems to result from a very bad stomachache. I shoukd have almost recovered by now. :) Dominoes I guess? 13:19, 21 August 2021 (UTC)

Thanks! I would say that it's very good, although that makes it impossible to link to a page if it does not have an image (similar issue to the Variants template). Dominoes I guess? 13:57, 21 August 2021 (UTC)
Oh, I forgot about the "Others" sectoon. Given that this section exists, it should be good. :) Dominoes I guess? 15:50, 21 August 2021 (UTC)

Given that we haven't known about PJ in mainland China, I think there's no traditional Chinese titles yet. Dominoes I guess? 15:39, 22 August 2021 (UTC)

Bot request

Oh, yeah. I didn't think of that at first, haha. I'll make a bot request to have the capitalization automatically done. It's not just for that template either, but also the Type template. I'll be sure to request one for both. IMG 6982.png (talk) 21:22, 22 August 2021 (UTC)

Now when I remember, the characters pages were divided into seasons while the Pokémons were into regions (and then into series). Since the former is also about the series, I guess the latter can be renamed into series as well? Energy X 07:21, 24 August 2021 (UTC)

Reply

You know you don't have to add every single country/language? Not every region broadcasts the series regularly to compile information about each episode. Even then most of the naming remains the same, especially for characters. The original idea was to use countries/languages and link them to interwiki sites we already have, like Japanese, Spanish, Portugese etc. Energy X 19:35, 27 August 2021 (UTC)

Bot requests

Did some bot edits today. I would like to point out that we don't really need Small and WP templates, as I may have described before - it already substitutes some content already that is substituted already, as in there's nothing wrong with actually typing in <small> or [[wikipedia:article|article]]. Kinda like it was done with the main page, where it was being subsistuted by one large template that was used only on that page.

Carrying on, the next request is about removing the categories of the Pokémon by their type. This is a big change, and while I am comfortable by substituting it for series categories, the latter is not applied fully on all pages. By that, I mean that a lot of pages use the deprecated infobox, and some of the Pokémon appear in more than just one series, since we list series in the infobox and that also automatically inserts the category. What I am trying to ask here is this bot edit OK for everyone at this point? I can also just apply this edit to the pages that use the new infobox. Energy X 21:41, 27 August 2021 (UTC)

PJ078 flashback

The Pokémon appearing in the flashback now have added info. Luxray and Infernape also appeared in the flashback, so their info has been updated as well. IMG 6982.png (talk) 00:33, 28 August 2021 (UTC)

Silhouettes

Well, I get your point, seeing as Cynthia is harder to identify (if it is her), though it looks like Garchomp's head is shown as the silhouette behind the figure. Anyway, maybe once it is revealed at some point the actual silhouettes, could one of you update that?

As for those templates, I think there's some simplicity in just using them as they are. It makes more sense if there are some more complex functions behind it. Energy X 10:50, 28 August 2021 (UTC)

I'm guessing you found the reason why we had to use br tag and is actually unnecessary. Maybe you could try and cleaning up other infoboxes like that?
As for me, I reogranized the categories, as seen here. Energy X 18:43, 28 August 2021 (UTC)

Titles

Sure, although I'll probably put the six remaining Berries into priority. Not that I won't do the titles at all, of course. :) Dominoes I guess? 15:40, 28 August 2021 (UTC)

I do know Canadian airdates for three of the other episodes of Pokémon Master Journey that have an English title. Also I be happy to put them in as well. Kittystyler talk 6:53, 29 August 2021 (UTC)

I usually look at Bulbapedia for the Canadian airdates as they it on their website. Also I hope that's okay because I know this wiki has a policy in certain areas about coping things from Bulbapedia. Kittystyler talk 7:37, 29 August 2021 (UTC)

Patched the icon issue as well!
UrsuulTalkWRDate5:20 PM Tuesday, August 31, 2021 (UTC)

That could present an issue with the way tabber tabs overflow, so I'd likely have to remove the overflow & generally modify the tabbers quite extensively. You'll need to get approval from an Admin before I can implement a change like that.
UrsuulTalkWRDate6:08 PM Tuesday, August 31, 2021 (UTC)

Read the message and I say go for it. If I'm not mistaken, the tabbers were supposed to be centered even after the change... Energy X 20:18, 31 August 2021 (UTC)
Understood. I have made the modification in infoboxes such as Castform & Blacephalon (Adventures), however I was not able to identify any tabbers within article tables to modify the same way. If either of you can send me a link to an example of this (multiple examples preferred) then I can implement the change within those tables as well. Let me know if there are any issues with the tabber change in infoboxes in the meantime.

As for blue rectangular box above the Discord section, all rail module headers have this box as a text shadow. The text of the Discord module header is simply too long, so it appears on multiple lines & so the box appears out of place. I suggest having an Admin reduce its length, otherwise I can reduce the font size in order to make it fit all on one line.
UrsuulTalkWRDate4:17 PM Saturday, September 4, 2021 (UTC)

As I mentioned, the tabber would need to lose its overflow in order to accommodate your request — this is why they wrap onto multiple lines, because otherwise the first tab would not show up at all, leading to a bad user experience. I can revert the tabbers back to being left-aligned all on one line, if you wish.
UrsuulTalkWRDate4:19 PM Saturday, September 4, 2021 (UTC)

Certainly, done.
UrsuulTalkWRDate4:25 PM Saturday, September 4, 2021 (UTC)

That is precisely what I thought impossible given the way Portable Infoboxes are set up, but I looked again & made another attempt, & things appear to have worked this time. The method I used modified the body of the infobox itself however, so bugs are probable — let me know if you see any issues. If you still wish to use this in article table tabbers as well, then I'll need examples of those to see if this fix applies.
UrsuulTalkWRDate5:24 PM Saturday, September 4, 2021 (UTC)

Template

I always felt it was frustrating to see the navboxes for chapters/episodes when you don't even know which article it would take you to. It's why I made a new template to fix that and to make the coding behind it much easier, too. If you want, I can publish this on other templates following this style.

And at this point, it might also be wiser to split the big navboxes of series into seasons, then link to each other. Energy X 20:13, 31 August 2021 (UTC)

This isn't so much about mobile view where the navboxes aren't even displayed yet. This is more about to adapt the template so it can be used by anyone. Someone new that comes will have no idea about what is displayed, just a bunch of numbers representing episodes. At least this way you can also display names for easier use. Energy X 11:21, 4 September 2021 (UTC)

I saw that you did that for the anime characters and its a great idea but when I put in both Ash's Z-Ring and Z-Power Ring they just say Z-Power Ring and Dynamax Band instead of what the image would say. Also it did the same thing for Ilima for his Z-Ring and Key Stone. Can you help me in fixing it please. Kittystyler talk 14:19, 1 September 2021 (UTC)

I understand that if the item for the anime character has more then one. Also I'll be happy to work on rename the item sprites on the wiki. Kittystyler talk 6:16, 2 September 2021 (UTC)

I was just referring that you updated pages like these, but the outdated parameter was still there, and you forgot to separate it. Energy X 13:19, 4 September 2021 (UTC)
Maybe you could try and use the MassEdit option instead? You know the category that's not right, and you can either remove it or change it. At least more effective than going image by image. Energy X 13:42, 4 September 2021 (UTC)

Plot and edits

I wanted to give a short note pertaining to the plot of the most recent episode and the concept art edits you requested. I have been having some technology issues as of late and have been editing through the mobile version. I would rather do larger edits using my laptop, but it is being worked on at the moment. I have the plot saved as a WIP as well, so I should be able to get it on the page by Tuesday, I think.

My apologies if it seems I was putting off doing any edits in favor of my daily minor edits. I will be able to get back to normal editing soon. IMG 6982.png (talk) 18:38, 6 September 2021 (UTC)

RE: Wikipedia "Short Description" Boxes

Yep, that's accomplished on Fandom via the LinkPreview script, however again you'll need Admin go-ahead to implement. An Admin can install it themselves by adding dev:LinkPreview/code.js to MediaWiki:ImportJS, or they can give you the go-ahead & I can do the actual installation.
UrsuulTalkWRDate3:40 PM Saturday, September 11, 2021 (UTC)

Feels interesting. Given that it's for an external website, I would rather have an External Links section at the bottom of the page with the link to the official website's respective page. Dominoes I guess? 13:27, 12 September 2021 (UTC)

Future changes to policies and interface.

Hey Ellis, I hope you are doing well! Ursuul and I are discussing changing the community's interface by bringing new features. For start, I have completely changed the Administration page. From now onwards, we will have our current and former staff listed in Hall of fame page so that it becomes easier for us to edit just one list than doing it with it. Saksham Mishra! (talk) 15:23, 12 September 2021 (UTC)

Stuff

  1. I don't think it is a wise idea to make all things automatic. The way you want it to be used would make it that a few users would know that by uploading an image with specific filename would be displayed on a page. Newcomers would have harder time to figure that out.
  2. Could you remind me of which Pokémon pages are we talking about?
  1. There is no rule about synopsis that says that it should be taken from the site. And I am reminding you that some of the blurbs are even wrong, particularly the volume pages, which mention the wrong characters involved.
  2. You could ask on the forum. Might be a good idea to find other features you want to implement, too.

And, uh, this late reply shows that my activity is declining. I could wrap things up before retiring. Energy X 08:45, 14 September 2021 (UTC)

Well the fact about short pages only refers to trailer pages (Pokémon Masters, Black 2 and White 2, Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire). This is just only because they are advertisements for the actual product, and it only feels appropriate to migrate content to those pages instead of having them on their own. This only applies to this format of pages.
As for the blurbs, think of it like images: we want pngs, but we won't object if someone uploads a jpg file. Here, you can write your own blurb but it an official one is preferred. Within reason, the official ones can be edited, like grammar or spelling mistakes.

Energy X 11:50, 17 September 2021 (UTC)

As for the template, I have already implemented it so you can also write from which page to import from. It usually isn't needed when the base page doesn't contain brackets, but in your example it is needed. Energy X 17:47, 17 September 2021 (UTC)
Turns out there was an edit needed to fix that, so it is now done. Anyway, I find a bit of suspicious information about Iris being a relative to Leon, as it says here in the infobox, is that true? If not, it should be removed. Energy X 18:00, 17 September 2021 (UTC)
And I forgot to reply about those short pages. It should only apply there; there are some pages that are short but you can at least present information that the Trainer had it at one point - where and when. Energy X 18:17, 17 September 2021 (UTC)
And I also forgot about those tooltips in movebox. Actually, before I wanted to implement references, but it didn't work to simply subsitute it with <ref></ref> keyword. The only way is to actually type those keywords in the template, kinda like you do with gender in the infobox, but it shouldn't be too hard to edit them all with the bot. Energy X 18:21, 17 September 2021 (UTC)

Remember, there are a lot of examples where a character is just shown in one episode/chapter with a Pokémon. Currently we don't make articles only when it is just mentioned, or shown on a screenboard (or something along that). Besides, think that you could also link to other articles this way, since you could link to the place they have appeared, and present those articles much better.

As for the article proposal, you have already Anime/Manga sections for Pokémon pages, no need to go beyond that. That should serve as an overview and remain like that.
Finally, for tooltips, can you explain that a bit? I was just thinking of transforming tooltips into references, kinda like it is done with gender. Just wish there was a way to solve the tabber problem, so you can click on a reference but the tabber is hidden. Energy X 10:59, 19 September 2021 (UTC)

One last thing: why ja_origin parameter when that info is best desribed into several sentences in Etymology section? Energy X 11:02, 19 September 2021 (UTC)

It does, but the link is a bit off. Here. Energy X 11:17, 19 September 2021 (UTC)
The references point you make is something that I don't think can be made. But what can be done is to simply pull it closer to the movebox template. Energy X 11:21, 19 September 2021 (UTC)

Sorry, I'm still too busy due to real-life things (lol). But yeah, I'll go check the proposals. :) Dominoes I guess? 08:22, 19 September 2021 (UTC)

Logo and badges

Wow. I was about to send you a message, but you already sent one to me. Although I was waiting for your message.

I hope you are doing well!

Do the new staff badges look good? I have removed the staff template from the administration page and left on the hall of fame page, so that we do not waste much time on making changes on the information of staff members.

As for the community logo, it is very easy to organize a contest for it, but very difficult to find competitors. I have done all this before and I have a lot of experience with it. Because of it, my personal opinion is a no.

However I've also thought about changing the community logo, and I'm thinking that our community logo should be our own, as the Bulbapedia Community has. I will have a detailed discussion on this subject with Ursuul later. Saksham Mishra! (talk) 12:42, 19 September 2021 (UTC)

I'm glad to know that you like those templates! I designed them, but Ursuul used the codes.

As far as the logo of the community is concerned, I do not feel right to appeal to anyone. Although I can assure you that this time, the logo of our community will be excellent.

How is the re-categorization going on? Saksham Mishra! (talk) 00:55, 20 September 2021 (UTC)

To be honest, I had it removed intentionally. There were three reasons for its removal. First, we don't know everyone's timezone. Second, if anyone views that page, their eyes will be on the staff status, not the timezone. Third and my personal reason, adding it back will make the design of that template look a bit bad.

As for the highlight, I'll get everything done by this Sunday! Saksham Mishra! (talk) 11:24, 24 September 2021 (UTC)

I'll ask Ursuul to add them :) Saksham Mishra! (talk) 11:35, 24 September 2021 (UTC)

Can you just wait 2 days? I'll tell you myself once we've changed the theme.

However, I have a task for you, if you are free now. Can you update this page? Of course, with the necessary information. Saksham Mishra! (talk) 12:54, 24 September 2021 (UTC)

Haha, you are right, but unfortunately, I know nothing about copyright. I'll probably give that page to Ursuul to update, because he's so good at it all. Saksham Mishra! (talk) 13:04, 24 September 2021 (UTC)

You can now ask Ursuul to change template colors. Also, he has added timezones! Saksham Mishra! (talk) 02:20, 25 September 2021 (UTC)

Episode segments

It is divided by those two segments that have their own title cards so it is indeed a two-part episode. Even pokemon.com lists the titles for both parts through they strangely don't put the / there when they did it for PJ026 (I think here it is important to indicate that they are their own parts and not the same title however).

RE: "Flipped" Colours

Absolutely, but Pokémon Wiki has a great many themes, so new colors would need to be created for each & every theme. I'd need a list of templates to modify, & the colors each theme should change to in dark mode. Potentially involved project.

Sprites

The better question would be to ask where to place them, since Pokémon pages are already full with artwork and models.

Flashback Ep.

I think that may be PJ068, which had other flashbacks to Ash and Gary's previous interactions. I don't specifically recall Charizard or Blastoise battling in any of the flashbacks, though it could just be bad memory. It's also the only "Journeys" episode where Ash's Charizard and Gary's Blastoise appear (physical or otherwise), so it is likely this one. IMG 6982.png (talk) 16:39, 25 September 2021 (UTC)

  1. About references, I did show you in the pictures how that would work, you'd only need to write the <ref> tags inside the template.
  2. As for James Castle, I gave them a warning, remind me if such behavior persists.
  3. Could you explain in detail about this "views of diff. lang. of Evolution eps." because I didn't really understand that?
  4. Finally for jname, I'm fairly sure I did nearly all, ask if there is something left out. Except the outdated template, which has to be updated manually anyway. Energy X 13:46, 26 September 2021 (UTC)

That can be done like this — as you can see the displaytitle works the same way, & will work responsively on other articles with the same title format. As for not having to add it to every page, you can add it once to any template that you know is only used on articles with this title format, & that will update all of them.

EpisodeBox

I noticed you added that display title thing. Well, even if you find it necessary, it doesn't work always: pages like Cerulean Blues will only display the title as "Blues", and had to remove that part.

I'd sooner also ask why was this needed, since the previous way you can also see the number of episode in the series. Energy X 14:19, 3 October 2021 (UTC)

Well just mind that there are episodes without the code. Although the one I mentioned needs the SP code, and such pages have to be moved - as well as their images. Energy X 14:36, 3 October 2021 (UTC)
If I remember correctly, there was a conflict of sorts that we used SS already, and SP denotes that this is a special episode. You should really ask ThePokémonGamer about such details. Energy X 14:47, 3 October 2021 (UTC)
The symbol was just placed since extra break lines do not work on mobile, and the disclaimer is put right next to the actual text. At least with a slash it could (or should) work. Energy X 15:02, 3 October 2021 (UTC)
Added it to a different file and now the symbol is hidden. It now works. Energy X 15:05, 3 October 2021 (UTC)

Episode code

It should be SS001-SS018. SP is a generic code Energy X and I picked for use with general anime specials that do not have any way to classify them but these 18 episodes do have a way to classify them (which is SS for the "Side Stories" initials).

I think the Side Stories episodes' pages should also feature their SS code in their page titles. Same goes for the other specials that have no other designation method that will use the SP code, I think the SP code should also be featured in the title of those specials' pages. PokémonGamer* 21:16, 3 October 2021 (UTC)

I'll just remind that if so, you might also want to change the Sword/Shield chapters naming to avoid such confusion, preferably to "SWSH001". Energy X 22:19, 5 October 2021 (UTC)

  1. James Castle is banned, and for a year, on grounds for his previous blocks. You'd think people would get the idea to be at least more careful, and at least ask before making such edits.
  2. About the template you saw, it is for the best to simply optimize that, so we don't have to write every time the code/name when you can just write it once for both times, using the template.
  3. And as for the CharacterBox, it sounds like I could run the bot to change MangaCharacer/AnimeCharacter templates to that. But can we verify that all of the content remains intact and unchanged after it is updated?
  4. And I applaud you for uploading those pictures once more. The quality is a bit off, but better that having nothing at all. You could also try and ask people here if they could help you with that, on other content that can be screenshot'ed. Energy X 18:04, 9 October 2021 (UTC)

For the Featured Pokemon template, I have asked Ursuul and he will help you with it.

I have fixed the Discord module; and added the favicon. Saksham Mishra! (talk) 08:37, 10 October 2021 (UTC)

RE: Two Alterations

I would not recommend moving the Featured Pokémon module back over as this would make the left & right rails roughly equal in length, & then when advertisements load the right rail will be shoved down below the left rail, leaving a large gap. The right rail is intended to be shorter than the left rail, so unless you have ideas for other content to add into the left rail to replace Featured Pokémon, I would advise against doing that.

Title cards

Remind me again why do we have a page on [Pokémon_Journeys:_The_Series_(series)/Title_cards title cards] where the content is just filled with galleries?

This entire thing can be covered by categories, rather than doing this. It's really ineffective to update the page every now and then, when the category just gets populated with new image. Energy X 20:29, 15 October 2021 (UTC)

Reply

  1. It took a while, but the template has been completed. Wish you guys could study this, too, and apply such methods to create new templates to make writing code easier.
  2. I have removed a number of categories, and if I haven't done the Ancient Pokémon already, it will be removed. What do you think of removing episode categories in which a specific event has happened - all of which can be described by using articles?
  3. As for the tab system, that depends on what you want. Do you want to make a new article for the (regional) variants, or something else? Energy X 14:23, 16 October 2021 (UTC)

Views

I guess that's better, but why adding it every week? You could easily just post the number of views for a week after it was posted on YouTube on page's articles, rather than placing tables with tabbers on the central page. Energy X 17:33, 16 October 2021 (UTC)

Reply

Yea, I have seen that Ursuul is leaving, as well as the edits you make on the infobox.

As for those tabbers, well, it would take a while, and for now, we do use the See also section for that. You could make a proposal about it. Energy X 21:21, 16 October 2021 (UTC)

Well OK, though mind that some series don't even have volumes, such as Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Blazing Exploration Team. Energy X 12:29, 17 October 2021 (UTC)

Title

Due to the coding, a part of the title is cut off. Energy X 14:12, 19 October 2021 (UTC)

Infobox

Remember, we should keep things simple and sensible. It makes sense to use arrays to list episodes/chapters when you have a lot of redudant code that keeps on repeating, as we also do to display badges on episode pages' infobox. Or how we display series' titles, since most of them contain the "Pokémon the Series:" part of title.

But it makes less sense to be using it for regions/hometown. Sometimes characters appear in more than one region, but it is simple enough to link it and write <br /> code. Energy X 09:11, 22 October 2021 (UTC)

But you don't have to combine them together in code. What does make sense is to put them in one row visually, how it is being displayed in the infobox. Energy X 09:23, 22 October 2021 (UTC)

Template

Well we already have ScrollBox thing. Not sure what you would like to accomplish with a new template.

Could you remind me, if you removed the Japanese names for Master Journeys season, for what I remember that it was an English season (Japanese seasons don't exist), why then keep Japanese names for other seasons like this? Energy X 14:31, 22 October 2021 (UTC)

Random thought again

Would it be good to add just the letter "é" (e with diacritic) to the "Pokémon words" section in the editing interface? Dominoes I guess? 12:33, 24 October 2021 (UTC)

Re:Hey There

Thank you for checking in. I am doing well. I am focusing mostly on IRL stuff at the moment and considering this to be a temporary hiatus, possibly until November. I know I am behind on stuff such as episode plots, which eventually started to pile up, so I'm just focusing on one thing at a time for now. IMG 6982.png (talk) 22:27, 25 October 2021 (UTC)

Hope you're doing well too. I'm unsure if I'll return to editing here since I feel real-life work has been of more importance lately. I apologize for my absence. I may return to editing frequently but for now I have not decided when (probably when Legends Arc comes out).

Hope you have a nice day, Ellis. TheWikiOddish (talk) 16:52, 5 December 2021 (UTC)

VolumeBox

I've modified the volume template so it can display three volume covers, and use default captions, as shown here. The first entry is for English covers, the last one is for Japanese, and the middle one (if it exists at all) is used for alternative covers, such as mini-volumes, which are split into two parts in English, or using Chuang Yi covers. Now all that needs to be done is to upload all the images. Energy X 22:47, 26 October 2021 (UTC)

Movebox

Made some updates, so you can see which pages need to have movebox updated. Energy X 20:51, 27 October 2021 (UTC)

Sorry, I wasn't logged on in the past few days.
Side Stories is preferred for the default categorization of the episodes. Chronicles is the English dub's collection name of random specials including the Side Stories specials, The Legend of Thunder, and various Pikachu shorts. So the articles should say something like "(x) is the (number) episode of Pokémon Side Stories (or (number) Pikachu short) and the (number) episode of Pokémon Chronicles." PokémonGamer* 23:26, 28 October 2021 (UTC)
Good for that category.
As for the template, that will not work, and I would rather not go that way. While series pages are carefully constructed, you can very much put anything in the gallery - be it a .jpg or a .png file - and doesn't have to be named as "epcode num.png". Energy X 11:34, 29 October 2021 (UTC)
Well remember - you should do this if it is easy to use and the user can understand how it works. It is fine as it is currently, I say. Energy X 11:55, 29 October 2021 (UTC)

Any template that has that pattern - one for header, one for end and multiple templates in the middle - can definitively (and should) be simplified.

As for the volume, I'll update the necessary pages later. Energy X 12:36, 29 October 2021 (UTC)

Aura and Bond Phenomenon

I been thinking about this for a long time and I want to ask for your opinion. Do you think Aura and Bond Phenomenon are one in the same. The reason I believe this is because when Ash and his Greninja merge to make the Ash-Greninja form they are surrounded by Aura. Also, Ash is able to see Greninja point of view, which he can also do with his Lucario. Kittystyler talk 12:31, 29 October 2021 (UTC)

Reply

I get that both Aura and Bond Phenomenon have differences in abilities. However, I believe Bond Phenomenon happens for the two of them is because of Ash's Aura powers and his Greninja's Battle Bond ability combined in the anime while the transformation only happens for a special Greninja in the games with the same ability. Also, thanks for your opinion and will see how it all plays out in the anime. Kittystyler talk 7:35, 31 October 2021 (UTC)

Forum

Well at least you are the first to see that, which is nice. Maybe we should really increase the visibility of such important posts, yes?

Also, I made a new proposal on the page, you could check it out.

And finally, if you haven't gotten the idea, let tomorrow be my final editing day. I'll try to finish that infobox - and the series template, there is an issue with it - and write a post about the final day. Energy X 17:13, 31 October 2021 (UTC)

Book

It'd be nice if you could find artworks that are, well, missing. I've noticed that, for example, artwork of Professor Juniper (Adventures) is the same from the cover volume 43, just that the latter is being pushed aside by illustrations of other characters. It'd be beneficial to share the concept artwork, too. Maybe you could even describe something in your own words about that.

As for the episodes you mentioned, you could work it with SP, for if you'd use S&S code, then you'd have to move the Adventures chapters of Sword & Shield arc, to something like "SWSH001" code. Energy X 14:27, 1 November 2021 (UTC)

Also, I first have to applaud you for using arrays, this is something that you should definitively use for table/list templates.

But, what are you trying to accomplish with this? Is this something that should be used on game character pages to display Pokémon, or something else? Try writing the documentation so I can understand this a bit better. Energy X 14:36, 1 November 2021 (UTC)

Edit

I've reviewed the template. Anyway, the concept of how such templates are built is to define one array (not several ones), and then use explode function to split the entry (and format it how you wish, as a file or something else).

Also, try to use as less inline CSS styles, too. It makes the code harder to read, too. Energy X 10:01, 2 November 2021 (UTC)

I made the navbox so you can also click links to the seasons within a series, since all of that is relevant. But you could do as you wish. Energy X 12:13, 3 November 2021 (UTC)

PJ084

Ellis, you should we revert that pic of this in PJ084 back with image of Lucario with the Key Stone and Lucarionite because the image of Ash and his Lucario is already been in this. The person who seriously mistakenly change it be must have done by accident without it being notice. Lego Master BB on 8:42 AM, November 3, 2021.

I am running the bot to update the navboxes, no need to do it manually. Hope you all understand that you have the tools to make hundreds of changes with one click.

As for the template, not sure how are you able to do that, since those two are different things an you'd need a different template. But ah, I would certainly appreciate if one of you could rally people and press Fandom on this first. It's to further reduce redundancy, so you don't have to type everywhere the same piece of info on move pages. Energy X 17:35, 3 November 2021 (UTC)

Why did you revert PJ084's preview image?

Hello.

I took the time yesterday to replace PJ084's preview image, as it was lower quality and the frame must've been taken from a preview clip, as Gurkinn is supposed to be talking during that scene in the episode itself.

I try my best to get preview images in as high quality as possible at the time along with finding the (personally) perfect frame to use for them, so as to why the image was reverted isn't clear to me as the comment you put just says "Reverted to version as of 10:11, 3 November 2021 (UTC)".

Please get back to me as soon as possible. Thank you.

Sincerely,

Well BookSources is a special page, and if it is not applied to this site, you'd have to request this to the staff. You might want to check if some of the wikis based on books have that. Even then you have a link to Wikipedia page anyway.

As for the category, no, that is specific for that site, and I don't think we need it here. Our aim is to link to each countepart page on each page, anyway.

Finally, it was good of you to warn me about the deleted pages, I meant to delete the redirects. Energy X 18:16, 5 November 2021 (UTC)

I'd sooner ask what does Aegislash's form/ability even enable (in the games)? Anyhow, the current practice is just to use image tabs for a different use than to display forms - which is something we have abandoned the old infobox for. Energy X 18:43, 5 November 2021 (UTC)

Bot requests

Completed some more bot requests. There are two that are out of line:

  • changing PT(num) to PL(num) - I believe you wanted to target all the Adventures chapters that had the code. This isn't easy, because you'd have to rename tons of pages/images. Moreover, the pages were also renamed to PT in the first place because it was more fitting to use PT as codename. In fact, we also use PT as abbreviation to link to the Pokémon Platinum Version game, too, so it makes less sense to rename it to PL. Probably should've thought of that when going to S&S code for Sword & Shield chapters instead of SWSH.
  • I renamed the ";" character as separator for the arrays for generation template. There is an important reason: we use ";" to separate lists in the table templates, and there is always a fixed number in there - it equals the number of columns - 1 (so you can separate an array in the template into smaller bits, whichis what is done currently). However, for arrays you don't need to have a fixed number of entries, and that is the major difference. We should use simple characters, such as the comma "," whenever possible, for arrays, unless there is a proof to do it otherwise (like an episode name contains a comma character). Finally, the last thing we should be aware is also the user: it sounds a bit confusing that we'd use ";" character when the displayed character is "," for generations.

Energy X 00:24, 6 November 2021 (UTC)

Maybe find a different code for PokéToon instead could be a better option?
I didn't think the navbox template would be an issue, I've updated that.
Finally, I added the categories for Pokémon pages to be added automatically, at least for the anime series. You could try and do the same for manga series, minding that there are multiple different manga series. Energy X 12:04, 6 November 2021 (UTC)
There is no easy way to do that, I believe. But such pages are very rare, like that Pikachu page you mentioned, so I wouldn't worry too much about it. Energy X 12:28, 6 November 2021 (UTC)

I think it can be done as the pages for episode listings all use the Japanese numbering system. However, I would still support having the gallery being divided by the dub-invented part division because it's really hard to divide something that's over an hour long into only one episode gallery (which we generally restrict up to 30 images per gallery). Along with something like notes in the episode summary marking where all the parts begin and end in the dubbed version.

The Mewtwo Returns/Ware wa Koko ni Ari special should still be three pages as it is divided in three parts on Japanese reruns which is what we normally base the order of our listings on. PokémonGamer* 23:57, 7 November 2021 (UTC)

You also have to verify if a note is added to the infobox so you can also hide the "Notes" header. Energy X 09:23, 8 November 2021 (UTC)

As for the template, I've noticed that any blank sections were updated by the bot automatically with Empty section template. I'm guessing the date was there just to show for how long has the notice been there. Energy X 09:26, 8 November 2021 (UTC)

Adminship.

I appreciate your approach regarding Mezzo's promotion but, looking at his recent contributions, it seems to me that he is not the right guy for this right now. To become a user with some extra tools, you must have daily edits, but they only have five to six edits per month, this year. It is well known to us that we have many people who have special rights, but many of them are inactive. So, I personally think it would be fine to promote an active editor.

I came to know recently that Energy X has left the community (still hard to believe that) due to his personal reasons. He has been the best and most-active administrator for 9 years, and a person who helped me with the administration.

We have four community administrators left after Energy X's exit. Me, TPG, Lordranged and Shock. TPG, Lord and I are semi-active but Shock is completely inactive. Thousands of editors edit here (some of whom even vandalize and need to be kicked out of the community right away) and looking at the current status of community administration, I can say that taking any administration action right at the same time will be impossible. That is why I am here, presenting my recommendation to you.

You too have been working in this community for almost 8 years and you are a CM, but you never expressed your desire to become an administrator. I recommend that you apply for the position of admin here, on this page, and get enough votes that you get it and assist us, the higher ups, with administration.

Not to mention I will vote in support of you.

And suggest Dominoes to become an admin after some good time, because I have faith in both of you. Saksham Mishra! (talk) 11:05, 21 November 2021 (UTC)

You don't have to be bound by any admin's suggestions. We recommend it because we think you are the right user for that position. But, you are free to apply for the post on you own haha. All the best to you and Dominoes (yep, I agree to him applying for it right away). Saksham Mishra! (talk) 11:20, 21 November 2021 (UTC)

The timing of blocking anyone is at our discretion. However, there is a suggestion from the community administration that for light offences, a shorter time block should be imposed and for heavy offences, longer.

Eg: if someone put a pornographic image or abuses alternate accounts, should be banned indefinitely.

And kk, cool. Saksham Mishra! (talk) 11:47, 21 November 2021 (UTC)

Came back for a bit. I've been watching a few times around, and I'm not impressed. You do have people around doing questionable edits, like this: Charizard did not evolve in the season, only flashbacks of it were shown, which is something different.

I fear it is as you say - with no leader around, you are starting to lag behind.
