Hi there, why is there another Pokemon wiki if there's already Bulbapedia? Cremia2000 (talk) 19:06, 25 October 2018 (UTC)

Also, jsut looking at this, the wiki is kind of a mess. I've tagged some things for deletion, and doesnt seem to be an active admin around. i'm not a pokemon expert (i dont even edit bulbapedia) but do you know who can delete thes?Cremia2000 (talk) 19:42, 25 October 2018 (UTC)
it seems like this wiki's actually been around for a while. the main page says 2005--just a month before bulbapedia's main page says they launched. bulbapedia probably just wound up being the more popular wiki over time, since i think marriland was mostly about guides & forums back then.
me, i'm here because after looking around bulbapedia i just... didn't personally like their content style. q: little things like, for example, frequently doing * in infoboxes. it's silly but that drives me crazy. so i figured i'd prefer to fix up a messy wiki here, rather than come in as a brand new user over there and start nitpicking like i own the place.
oh, and for the deletions, i'd say User:OOeyes is gonna be your best bet. as gamepedia staff they're probably active elsewhere on gamepedia and should notice if you post on their talk page --Eithris (talk) 00:31, 26 October 2018 (UTC)
dp ypu have a discord? i like to keep in touch with other editors Cremia2000 (talk) 13:52, 26 October 2018 (UTC)
i don’t use discord very often at all, but i do keep an eye on the gamepedia slack. i’m eithris there as well —Eithris (talk) 15:09, 26 October 2018 (UTC)
Are you going to attempt for applying as the new admin/bureaucrat of this wiki? Cremia2000 (talk) 05:01, 27 October 2018 (UTC)
hmm... probably, yeah. originally i only planned to stick around for until i was done with my PMD binge, but tbh fixing things up is fun :3c --Eithris (talk) 20:54, 27 October 2018 (UTC)
It is fun--i fix up things on various NIWA wikis, including ZeldaWiki. I think OoEyes is going to open the wiki up for being claimed (i saw his talk) Cremia2000 (talk) 05:39, 28 October 2018 (UTC)
Wiki is up for claim if you want it Cremia2000 (talk) 12:58, 28 October 2018 (UTC)

Congrats

Congratulations on your promotion. Hopefully this can be a good alternate take on a Pokemon Wiki (that isn't on Wikia) for Bulbapedia Cremia2000 (talk) 00:23, 30 October 2018 (UTC)

Moving Pokémon (Franchise)

Hi mind moving the page history from Pokémon (Franchise) to Pokémon (franchise) (whose revisions can then be restored since i edited that page)? thanks. Cremia2000 (talk) 04:08, 7 November 2018 (UTC)

there we go, moved & then restored --Eithris (talk) 23:41, 7 November 2018 (UTC)

Deletions

I'll continue marking stuff for deletion that I find around the place. Also I'm not a huge Pokemon expert (and am not super into the franchise either), so I don't know how much of a help I will be in the end. I'll still see what I can do. I think for one, we could attempt to be original and retrieve our own images not from Bulbapedia. Cremia2000 (talk) 16:48, 10 November 2018 (UTC)

i've really appreciated your help so far tbh--having things tagged for maintenance is super handy. & aye, it's gonna be a lot of work to replace so many images, but gradually moving to original is definitely the goal. :0 after i get done with updating all these infoboxes, i may download some roms to see about getting original screenshots --Eithris (talk) 19:51, 10 November 2018 (UTC)
Sup, i got more for you to delete, including merged Pokemon Mini pages. Cremia2000 (talk) 17:34, 1 December 2018 (UTC)

Sprite Templates with Consistent Naming

Hi, do you think the sprite templates (e.g. GenIIIPokéSprites or GenIIIPokéSprites) could all be edited to force a consistency with file naming? Maybe they can be merged into one template where it asks which the originating generation of the Pokemon. Cremia2000 (talk) 17:21, 10 November 2018 (UTC)

oh man, i didn't even realize there were separate templates happening there. what a silly setup! i'll look into it --Eithris (talk) 19:51, 10 November 2018 (UTC)
Also, mind adding a line between the normal and shiny Pokemon sprites? The template needs that thanks. Cremia2000 (talk) 17:12, 11 November 2018 (UTC)
how does this look? i left out the colored line because i feel it adds unneeded visual clutter, but the images should be at a consistent distance from each other now --Eithris (talk) 18:31, 11 November 2018 (UTC)

BW Sprite template

BW Sprite--is it possible to merge this into one template describing a sprite per generation of game? Cremia2000 (talk) 18:27, 11 November 2018 (UTC)

aye, probably. i'll see what i can do --Eithris (talk) 18:31, 11 November 2018 (UTC)

Improvements

File:110.png Mind deleting some file revisions? There's too many of them Cremia2000 (talk) 05:29, 12 November 2018 (UTC)

This template needs to be fixed, as it appears to be messed up, shown here. Cremia2000 (talk) 05:50, 12 November 2018 (UTC)
JE030: Tricks of the Trade The infobox is basically broken here. Do you know how to repair it? Cremia2000 (talk) 19:27, 12 November 2018 (UTC)
yeah i'm not sure what's up with the file revisions. a lot of older revisions are displaying three times in a row, and deleting one of the duplicates deletes all three, so it's gotta be a weird display issue. i asked about it on slack & pcj said he'll put in a ticket about it
oof, that trainer template's code is such a mess, i don't think i could find my own nose in there. :0 i'll probably just rebuild it from scratch at some point--knock out the bug and the code bloat all in one go
aand thankfully the episode template wasn't too wacky. someone added an extra pair of <noinclude> tags in {{colorseason}} and {{colorseason2}}, which was causing line breaks where there shouldn't be any line breaks. it should be working now --Eithris (talk) 20:31, 12 November 2018 (UTC)
Sweet, will be cool to see the redesigned trainer template. Ever used AdvanceMap? It's a good tool to use for being original with map rips from the GBA games. Cremia2000 (talk) 21:12, 12 November 2018 (UTC)
I asked this in an edit summary but are the TrainerA through C templates next? Cremia2000 (talk) 21:06, 14 November 2018 (UTC)
arright, i've added trainer sprite, trainer class & name, and prize money into the trainerteam template, so trainerA/B/C can be phased out. unfortunately having the trainer sprite's filename be automatically generated would get into a mildly ridiculous number of conditional tags & extra parameters, so i used the old "manually input the filename" setup instead --Eithris (talk) 01:18, 15 November 2018 (UTC)
Should still be fine, thanks. Is there any associated template for Pokemon and item locations, e.g. Kanto Route 2? Cremia2000 (talk) 03:24, 15 November 2018 (UTC)

File:Images.jpg

This file should be deleted but I cannot tag it since it can only be edited by sysops. Cremia2000 (talk) 04:25, 15 November 2018 (UTC)

Activity

Hi Eithris, I've not been active as much on here since I'm focused on re-establishing the Lylat Wiki (http://starfoxwiki.info/). Do you like the Star Fox games? I actually only really played Adventures, and it's because of my favorite company, Rareware. Cremia2000 (talk) 19:02, 22 November 2018 (UTC)

i've never played any of the games, but i am semi-familiar with star fox. i like panther caruso--he looks like a cool dude q: --Eithris (talk) 02:46, 23 November 2018 (UTC)

WikiDex

oh by the way, WikiDex forked. is there a way to change the hyperlink from Spanish Wikia to WikiDex? Cremia2000 (talk) 05:46, 23 November 2018 (UTC)

done :thumbsup: --Eithris (talk) 18:30, 23 November 2018 (UTC)
Awesome, thanks haha Cremia2000 (talk) 21:41, 23 November 2018 (UTC)

Good Job

Good job on those pages, wow. How much do you know on the franchise? Cremia2000 (talk) 17:38, 4 December 2018 (UTC)

ty! and a fair amount, i'd say. i've played most of the games since 2004... but i also completely missed the 5th generation and i haven't really kept up with the anime since the first movie came out. and i've never read any of the manga at all, heh
i also probably only seem Really Knowledgeable on the mystery dungeon stuff because i just re-played through blue rescue team. so most of the details are still pretty fresh, and any that aren't can be clarified by looking up a let's play video P: --Eithris (talk) 00:00, 5 December 2018 (UTC)

FANDOM

Hi Eithris, seeing as FANDOM is purchasing Gamepedia, do you think this wiki should fork or are you ok with the takeover? Cremia2000 (talk) 21:09, 12 December 2018 (UTC)

Blog post Cremia2000 (talk) 01:51, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
mm. i'm pretty unhappy with the situation, but i'm also not sure it'd be worth forking this wiki in particular. despite the recent work, it's still a very, very rough fixer-upper, and there are still only three of us here (you, me, and madoka)
i guess that would leave this place to be merged into fandom/wikia's pokemon wiki. personally i have zero trust in fandom... but i have no quarrel with the other pokemon wiki's editors, and i do trust gamepedia's staff to keep user interests at heart. so whether i stay will depend on how things go over the next few months
but hey, whatever happens... it's been a lot of fun, my man. --Eithris (talk) 01:28, 14 December 2018 (UTC)
