Dunno why Alpha Sapphire got truncated. I don't have direct access to the tool used to edit that message. I'm not sure how long the message is set to run, but I'd imagine it's nearly run its course. I'm sure people get that codes for "Omega Ruby" include "Alpha Sapphire", and I doubt anyone will seriously think you or Wikia "incompetent" for not including Alpha Sapphire. There may well have been a technical reason for truncating "Alpha Sapphire". I'm sure that tool has a character limit, and it could be that the one character difference between "Omega Red" and "Omega Ruby" put us over the limit. In any case, I'm sure it's not stopping people from clicking on the message and coming to this wiki. — CzechOut 00:48, October 25, 2014 (UTC)
ORAS redesign comments
Hey, so you might have noticed I've been discussing people's comments about the new design one on one away from the main discussion. I didn't want it to turn into a "point-counterpoint" thing, because I felt that would discourage people from giving their feedback. So you might find it helpful to go around to others' talk pages and read the comments there.
But to answer some of your questions:
- NextEpisode would have to be heavily revamped to fit into the current design. And I'm not quite sure that it conveys enough information to make it worthwhile. From a design standpoint, we've got to be very careful about putting too many graphical elements on the front page, or else we'd lose focus. Remember, you requested an ORAS themed redesign, so the graphics are dominant about that, and the basic nature of Pokémon (on the theory that we might get some people for whom ORAS is their first contact with the franchise). NextEpisode is just really busy, and it's unclear we've really got the space. However, if you and the community think that the basic idea of the template is really important to retain, then we could possibly push the "getting started" section off onto a subpage. But I still think it would need to be massively redesigned and most of its graphics withdrawn.
- I've deliberately avoided using jukebox for a couple of reasons. First, its got some graphical elements that clash with the current design. Second, and more importantly, it draws from videos that are not from the official channel of the copyright holder. As a member of staff I really can't condone that. I've got to pull video either from w:c:video or an official Nintendo-run channel. The current state of jukebox has it pushing song videos which aren't official, so I had to give it a miss.
As of now there seems to be broad support for the design, with specific problems being cited by just about everyone. Obviously I'm going to let discussion continue for a bit longer, but given the general approval to this point, I'm likely going to move it over to this wikia on Sunday and begin addressing users' concerns here, rather than continuing to build on my test wikia. Does that sound reasonable to you? — CzechOut 05:06, October 25, 2014 (UTC)
- Hey, I see that you blanked your own page. That's your right, of course, but I'm just going to restore my last couple of comments, so that I don't lose my place in my conversation with you. Since I'm talking to everyone who responded to the thread, I really need to keep track of what I said to whom.
- Thanks very much for the screenshot and browser info. Your font info is helpful to diagnosis. It's indeed odd that you're getting the header font, but not the body, which is supposed to be Roboto, a sans-serif font. I'll definitely be looking at that phenomenon in Firefox for Windows this weekend.
- I find it unusual that you say the gold of the right rail modules "clashes" since it's precisely the gold incorporated in the official logo. Indeed the whole gold-on-blue palette is ultimately derived from the logo that you probably see everyday in your life as an admin at the Pokéman Wiki. Still, it's an easy thing to change, and we can "audition" different approaches once the bulk of the design is moved over here.
- I've asked Adrían for his original wordmark files because it'll be easier to get the wordmark absolutely right if we can manipulate the individual elements. Your effort is great, but it still has the problem of being the wrong dimensions. For absolutely best effect, wordmarks need to be exactly 250 X 65, and yours is 220. The one over at czechitout is, too, and that's why it seems skewed to the left. See, when the system encounters a file that is under 250px, it decides where to place the thing — not us.
- And that's bad.
- We need to be able to fill the whole 250px, but we can't do that unless we can really manipulate the "the", the "Pokemon", the "Wiki" and the PokeBall device separately. Plus, for the long term, you want to be able to have a proper Photoshop .psd layered file so that you can manipulate it as the need arises. Getting that wordmark to you in a .psd file is one of my top priorities, because it will allow you to take out the PokeBall and put in other graphical devices. From your forum thread about choosing mascots, I gather that there's a great deal of division in this community over which Pokémon should represent you. If I can get you a .psd, then you — or whichever admin has Photoshop — can easily change the design to accommodate your community. — CzechOut 13:41, October 25, 2014 (UTC)
I think it's better to send a warning message on Samreen5's talk page...
because she keeps removing a message from her talk page or you should block her if you want to. I was wondering if Samreen and SaniaIslam are related because they both love the original series, they have similar names and they have similar profile too or maybe Samreen is SaniaIslam's sockpuppet account. Nectaria (talk) 16:20, October 25, 2014 (UTC)
I have some questions!
Why do you skipped all the banned episodes (except Beauty and the Beach)? Maybe because most of those episodes were never dubbed in english and that why you didn't upload images from those episodes? It seems you only uploaded images from the english dubbed version and not from the original japanese version. Well, I'm going to upload more images from Chronicles episodes. Should I upload images from those episodes in order (like starting uploading images from the first part of The Legend of Thunder to the last episodes from Pikachu's Winter Vacations series)? Should I upload images from the english version of all The Legend of Thunder episodes? Just wondering! Nectaria (talk) 22:11, October 25, 2014 (UTC)
If your confused
On the page there was a large unneeded space. I basically just filled it in.
Thanks for deleting this page because there is already a page for her. Of course we don't want to have duplicated articles. Well, I have moved Amber's mother's page from "Amber's Mother" to "Amber's mother". Maybe you should delete the old redirect if you want to. Nectaria (talk) 18:42, October 26, 2014 (UTC)
When you have a wordmark that is less than exactly 250 X 65, you are ceding control of the way the wordmark will display to the system. In this case it's likely just gonna push it to the left. But the bigger reason we wanna get the design settled in a piper Photoshop file is so we can switch out the PokéBall as needed over time. Also having the layers separated means we can put colour effects on each independent layer, which would mean, for instance, that we could have a green/white design for the logo for St. Patrick's Day without having to change the colour of the PokéBall — CzechOut 19:43, October 26, 2014 (UTC)
Hmm...Energy, can you tell me...
what's wrong with uploading images that have a TV channel logo? Look how many images from the japanese version of BW and XY episodes have the TV Tokyo logo (I'm not kidding!) like this image from the BW episode Saving Braviary! -_-. Please check my answer on my current talk page. Nectaria (talk) 23:38, October 26, 2014 (UTC)
A-ha, I noticed that you uploaded so many images from the english dubbed version of BW series that have the CN logo like this image from A Sandile Gusher of Change!. How great ¬_¬!

Hey there! I have another question regarding the DPA manga. Should I just use the manga pages that they are made like with (Adventures) behind it for example Roark (Adventures) or should I create a new page (I assume not but asking to be sure) to put the info of DPA on the page?
Thanks in advance!
Hmmm... They mostly appear in either one of two chapters with a somehow major appearance. They are some that appear in more chapters but they don't make a huge appearance. They are actually just there and don't do very much (The Gym Leaders and Riley in this case). However, Team Galactic members like Cyrus, Saturn, Mars, Jupiter, and Charon do appear in more chapters and do have a role in most of the chapters.
Ah okay! Thanks for helping me out! Also for their Pokémon, should I just create a subheading like Diamond and Pearl Adventure! on the already existing Pokémon pages to mention the info/moves there?
Ah okay! Thanks for helping me out with the questions!

I would like to extend a personal apology to you for the fact that I was not able to help you with a Halloween design. As explained at Forum:ORAS redesign, I was simply and unexpectedly unavailable at the beginning of the week to put in your "standard" ORAS redesign, so therefore I couldn't have been on hand in the middle of the week to apply the temporary Halloween reskin. — CzechOut 13:48, October 31, 2014 (UTC)

Dialga and Palkia
Hey X I have a tough question. We've seen more than one legendary pokemon. We've seen more lugia, birds, beast, darkrai, latios and latias, even another mew and mewtwo (and it's created).

Will keep that in mind next time, going to add the category now to all the images I uploaded.
Pikachu700, when told that wikis are not the place for his stories, vandalizes hundreds of pages at a time. They have followed me personally across all the wikis I am an admin of, and vandalized them as well. This has literally gone on for months. Pikachu700 has never added any constructive information in any way, and their "contributions" consist of deleting entire pages and replacing content with expletives and references to various bodily functions. I know my adminship is relatively new here, but I've taken the liberty of blocking Pikachu700 indefinitely. Please talk to me if you have any concerns. ~remaai 04:30, November 10, 2014 (UTC)

Outdated main page
Please define what you mean by the content of the main page being outdated? You've known of this design for some time now. Why are you thinking it's out of date? — CzechOut 10:08, November 17, 2014 (UTC)
- Oh, in that case: the modular design means you can easily switch out things in the future. However, the content, aside from the main ORAS feature, is fairly evergreen. It seeks to give an overview of the franchise and the wiki, so you probably won't have to change much more than the big, central video. — CzechOut 10:15, November 17, 2014 (UTC)
Hey, I've made obsolete Main Page. It's one thing to make individual modules of the front page into templates, and then call those templates on the main page. That's standard practice these days at Wikia, and you'll see tons of wikis that do that. But when you make the entire front page into a template, it becomes needlessly more difficult to se what effect your changes are having. So in the current design, I've bypassed that Main Page and put more of the content of the main page on the main page itself. It makes it way easier to see what you're doing.
On bot requests, I've floated a more public call for people to drop by Project:Bot requests so that they can either add requests of their own or review the ones you've currently got up. I'd still like to have some sort of way to tell that you agree with the changes Ellis99 has put up and vice versa, since you guys so fundamentally disagreed on the redesign project. Can you maybe work with him to come to ensure that you will literally sign his requests with which you agree and he'll do the same for yours? Thanks :)
Finally on that page it's important that when you're talking about making changes to something that can be linked — article name, category name, template name — that you actually make the link on the page so I can click it. I've revised the page to show you what I mean. It helps to see the blue link on the "move from" part so that I know you guys haven't made a typo. And it helps to see the redlink on the "move to" part, so that I know you're making a request to move things to a new page. — CzechOut 13:04, November 17, 2014 (UTC)
