Pokémon RBY[edit]

As far as glitches and stuff like the mountain that you mentioned, I plan on making one more page for tricks such as that and the unlimited item duplication trick. That really stinks about IE and the check mark. I suppose I can try to find a better symbol to use, I just can't understand why IE can't display a simple check mark. Also, I had a difficult time understanding the last sentence that you left for me on my talk page. It's not clear what you were trying to say. Thanks. Procyon (Talk) 09:55, 25 June 2007 (CDT)

List of Pokémon[edit]

You mentioned on the pokémon Diamond/Pearl talk page that there should be a list of Pokémon and their locations. Did you mean for Diamond/Pearl specifics, all Diamond and Pearl Pokémon locations, or a universal Pokémon/locations page with locations for the Pokémon in their respective versions?

Re: my sig[edit]

Thanks for the note, Rocky ^_^ BTW, you haven't told me before, so it's fine. Myth 23:31, 1 July 2007 (CDT)

Um... I filled in the Nickname in the "My Preferences" section, hit "Save", then hit "Reset", and nothing happened... [[User talk:Myth]] 00:11, 2 July 2007 (CDT)
Oh. Never mind. It just filled it in there... I didn't know it replaced your ~~~~ thing...^_^
P.S.: I did it wrong anyway...
When I put it in, it comes out "[[User talk:Myth|Talk]] not sure why... [[User:Myth|Myth]] 00:17, 2 July 2007 (CDT) (See what I mean)
Works now. Thanks for the note! --Myth (talk) 02:26, 2 July 2007 (CDT)

Template search error[edit]

I fixed the error you told echelon about on his talk page. In the meantime, if you ever arrive upon errors like those, let me know instead. I'm on much more often and can respond to those errors quicker than he can.--Dan 11:33, 2 July 2007 (CDT)

Uploading Images[edit]

Oh. Sorry. I didn't know. I'll do it from now on. Myth (talk) 15:33, 2 July 2007 (CDT)

BTW, how do you get a picture to be in the center of a page? Just wondering, cause I'm probably going to do it for the starter Pokémon artwork on the Pokémon Diamond and Pearl page. --Myth (talk) 15:53, 2 July 2007 (CDT)

High-risk[edit]

Rocky, there's no need to create redirect pages for templates; just use the normal template name. Creating redirect pages just complicates matters. --DrBob (Talk) 16:33, 3 July 2007 (CDT)

Images[edit]

Hey Rocky, when you upload an image, please remember to note who created it or where you got it; like for Image:Age of Mythology God Athena.jpg. Thanks. --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 21:41, 4 July 2007 (CDT)

It does now ahaha. As I wrote, it's to help us identify where the image originated. If you jacked it from a website, please credit them. We are GFDL and as such we must use others' work with attribution. --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 00:29, 5 July 2007 (CDT)
Well, yeah I think the Bulbapedia thing would be ok, but please, from now on put a sentence or two just saying clearly that it's yours or it's from Bulbapedia. People that don't talk to you about it are not going to know. Thanks Rocky. --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 01:18, 5 July 2007 (CDT)
Ok I guess I don't know what Bulbapedia/Category "excuse" thing you were talking about, but I couldn't find any sort of reference to bulbapedia or anything on images like Image:Pokemon 015Beedrill.png. Please go through every image you have submitted and add the necessary credits. --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 02:49, 5 July 2007 (CDT)

MapleScroll[edit]

While I have heard of it, I'm not sure it's significant enough to have a link here and it's not a tool that I use personally (Mostly due to the fact that I don't scroll much, not a flaw in the tool itself.) I'd say revert was probably the best thing to do. --IsaacGS 11:03, 5 July 2007 (CDT)

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon Completion stage[edit]

Really? That's weird... It was Completion Stage 0 when I first edited it, then I changed it to 1, and then it went back to 0... so how did Lunar Knight not do it? Myth (talk) 14:48, 5 July 2007 (CDT)

Yeah, Rocky, I double-checked the editing History, and that was the only edit that changed the completion stage number, so it had to have been Lunar Knight. Myth (talk) 14:50, 5 July 2007 (CDT)

Final Fantasy X lost page[edit]

Eyegore strategy[edit]

Hi Rocky. I'm not sure if you were talking about the right enemy when you added that Eyegore strategy. From what you wrote, it sounded to me like you were talking about the Koppe enemy found in later levels, that mirror your movements (i.e. when you press left they go right, etc.), and not the Eyegores. Eyegores simply wake up when you get close and follow you around. If you really meant the Eyegores, then fine, but if you were really talking about the Koppes, please fix up your addition. Thanks! ^_^ Procyon (Talk) 10:23, 11 July 2007 (CDT)

OH! DANGO! JAM[edit]

This article is about a free online flash game with no English publicity (based off a Google Search), which does not fit into our scope. That is why I have deleted its previous creation earlier today (the previous creation contains a link to the site, so you might want to check it out here). I have deleted the page a second time today, and will lock it if it gets created again, unless you can come up with a reason for why it should exist. Update: just got your message, I'll keep an eye out for it (didn't feel like erasing the previous message). --Skizzerz_Scissors.pngSafety Skizzerz Talk · Contribs · Spel Chek™ · VFG · RTFM 15:35, 25 July 2007 (CDT)

OH! DANGO! JAM[edit]

Reading the Scope, I think it does fit in.

This game meets both 1. It is a game, and 6. It has playerbase comparable to a commercial game. This one also says if it meets this, things like being commercially available, or produced by a corporation do not matter.

There are thousands of players. the ranking in game only shows the top 500 players, and ranked 500 is a level 400-something character. I have never even played a person that high a level, except for NPC boss characters, and I've fought hundreds of people.

You mention that the game has no english publicity. The scope page said language doesn't matter, as long as its guide is in english.

Yeah I agree. Plus this game is actually really fun! I say just let it be included and see how much info we can compile on this. English players could really use the translation. --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 22:30, 26 July 2007 (CDT)

Hey, what happened to your Wikipedia account? Lunar Knight (Talk to me + Contribs) 13:55, 3 August 2007 (CDT)

Your sig[edit]

Currently, your sig is taking up a lot of room. Therefore, I shall let you in on my secret of how I got my sig to be a template. What you need to do is put your sig in User:Rocky/sig or something comparable, and then create another page (like User:Rocky/sig2 or something) and put "{{User:Rocky/sig}}" in that page. Now, in your Nickname box in preferences, put in "{{subst:User:Rocky/sig2}}" (the MediaWiki engine automatically puts SUBST: in front of it if you don't, which is why this is a two-part process). Now, whenever you sign, instead of inserting all that messy wiki code, all it puts down is {{User:Rocky/sig}}. --Skizzerz_Scissors.pngSafety Skizzerz Talk · Contribs · Spel Chek™ · VFG · RTFM 08:28, 10 August 2007 (CDT)

Better "Welcome" message[edit]

How's this?:

Hello Rocky! Thank you for your contributions, although I must admit that mine are way better than yours. Oh well, you'll catch up eventually (actually, you probably won't, but whatever). Anyway, if you have any questions, this link should answer them quite thoroughly. If you need help editing, instead of whining about, why don't you try to RTFM? As for the staff lounge, try looking at the first word there. It says "staff." Are you staff? I didn't think so, so STAY OUT! If you want to voice something about the site in general, or it's community, just go to community issues, but try not to as nobody cares about your issues. Seriously, keep them to yourself. If you want to just hang out in IRC, shame on you. Try actually editing something, you slacker. Okay, now, remember to sign your name on, and only on, talk pages by clicking Wikisigbutton.png or using four tildes (~~~~); I'll let you figure out what the squiggly lines do yourself. Finally, always fill in the edit summary field, otherwise I have to do some hard work checking diffs to make sure you aren't screwing stuff up. Oh, and don't delete this message from your talk page or you will get banninated. Happy editing! -- Skizzerz_Scissors.pngSafety Skizzerz Talk · Contribs · Spel Chek™ · VFG · RTFM 17:14, 29 August 2007 (CDT)

This is pretty good... I had a friend who wanted to see it so I think I'll grab it and put it on his talk page. Baejung92 19:50, 5 September 2007 (CDT)

welcoming new users[edit]

Actually, Prod brought up a pretty valid point on IRC, in which that we shouldn't welcome people just for creating accounts, only when they actually edit. It would reduce the amount of space needed in the db (because, as you can see, a LOT of accounts are being created), plus the majority of those new users probably won't edit at all anyway. Therefore, just welcome them when they actually make an edit. Of course, if you believe otherwise, just come onto IRC and explain your views. --Skizzerz_Scissors.pngSafety Skizzerz Talk · Contribs · Spel Chek™ · VFG · RTFM 12:08, 1 September 2007 (CDT)

I was thinking that, but I saw that all the previous people had messages so I guessed I should follow.--Rocky 25px-Rally-X_Rock.png (Talk - Contributions) 12:09, 1 September 2007 (CDT)

Actually, the Dojo does say blue.--DukeRuckleyTalk | Contribs 11:54, 15 September 2007 (CDT)

Welcome back message[edit]

It has been put to good use on Lunar Knight. Although that's not the person I was intending to use it on. Baejung92 19:45, 25 September 2007 (CDT)

Yes... that was one of my worse ideas css-wise. It made my sig way too annoying, and just plain ugly to people that didn't have that css... :P Pretty much, it's best not to create your own css for your sig, as what we already have in bc.css and common.css, plus what you can set in span tags, etc., should be more than sufficient for your sig. --Skizzerz_Scissors.pngSafety Skizzerz Talk · Contribs · Spel Chek™ · VFG · RTFM 15:00, 26 September 2007 (CDT)

Re: Image in sig[edit]

It's not, and I never said it was....I just want it 'cause I think it'll be cool. And I was just wondering if you could shrink an image down to size and put it into your sig. ---Myth (talk) 15:36, 26 September 2007 (CDT)

As part of our ongoing cleanup project, we are transitioning to a category based membership scheme for the StrategyWiki:Cleanup project.

CrimsonNight[edit]

Yeah CN is still in beta, your userpage is a good example of the things that are missing right now. The problem is, however, that most of those things are templates (like todo) or images that have hardcoded CSS (maybe not the images, I haven't attempted to give them black bg's yet). What this means is we have to edit major templates like {{Moves List Header}} and the accompanying templates to make their color coding dynamic. Right now, people are and have been writing templates with a white background in mind, and it doesn't work for CN at all (see {{Todo}} and {{Chrono Trigger/Boss}}). I recommend NOT using it unless you feel like highlighting text A LOT (page histories and diff's haven't been changed yet so if you're patrolling you can't see anything). --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 18:42, 15 October 2007 (CDT)

Megaman Battle Network?[edit]

you ever tried the Megaman Battlenetwork series? that page is as dead as anything, and i need someone to help me put some life into it. ur up for it?

Need help W/ pokemon RS[edit]

hey rocky, i want to know if you could separate route 104 into a north and south section, and put petalburg forest between them. they have different items, trainers and such, so it would be better for it to be put into north and south sections, to make the guide flow. thanks in advance. Peace out, God bless. Halosonic 12:54, 6 December 2007 (CST)

Thanx Rocky![edit]

Thanx a lot for the page change. i should be able to get he guide continuing soon. i'm gonna take it easy today since its my B'day, so ill put some more info in it later. Peace out, God Bless. Halosonic 14:06, 7 December 2007 (CST)

Pokemon RSE Portraits[edit]

hey rocky, i saw on the GSC pages, that the gym leaders and the trainers have portraits and sprites for them. do you know if they have them for the RSE generations? and if they dont, do you know where they got the sprites and portraits for GSC? thanx in advance.

Peace out, God Bless. Halosonic 13:51, 13 December 2007 (CST)

Need ur help again, Rocky...[edit]

Hey rocky, need your help. I need to get some pages moved towards the back of the Pokemon RS guide.Here are my problems.


1)Routes 105 and 106 are out of position, and don't flow with the story...

2)I need to get a "Back to Route 104 (South)" page for talking to Mr Briney.

3)When i reach dewford town, do you think i should explain the gym first, or should i explain dewford cave first, instead.


Thanx in advance.

Peace Out, God Bless. Halosonic 18:03, 17 December 2007 (CST)

hmm, when i meant a "back to route 104 south" page, i meant a new page, not linking back to the original one. this one shouldnt be too detailed, just telling the ppl to go to briney's house. i dont want to explain it on rusturf tunnel. also, dewford town... do you think we should put the gym as a separate page, since you need to pass thru dewford town to get to the page, and i think doing the cave first is a good idea, so ill do it first.

hmm... do you have this game? im wondering if i should do a run thru on mine first... but that'll have to wait till next week, im doing this off of memory, and i have my stuff i another country...but i think one of us needs to play thru the game when we do this...

anyways... ill fix up the guide pages tomorrow.

Peace out, God Bless. Halosonic 16:07, 18 December 2007 (CST)

Master of Orion[edit]

Hi, thanks for you comments, and for drawing my attention to Civilization III and People's Tactics. I initially produced something very like the structure you describe, but then Skizzerz came over all bureaucratic and said that's not the approved format, and jawboned someone else into re-arranging it all into 1 long page. I'm in 2 minds about making "Playable races" a separate page - yes, it's long; but no, it's part of the game overview and some of the comments in other parts of the overview refer to it (for example wherever "Tolerant", "Lithovore" and "Creative" are mentioned). All that's in the air while Skizzerz insists that TBS and RTS guides should be shoehorned into a format that was apparently designed for FPS and platform games. But if you have any other suggestions in the meantime, I'll be glad to hear about them. Philcha 18:00, 12 January 2008 (CST)

Guide rename[edit]

Not sure if you're going to take care of it, but remember that all the subpages also need to be renamed (not just the front page). Then all the links and Navs need to be fixed on all the pages.

Game selector thing[edit]

I have found a solution. In my sandbox I have used the control selector as a game selector and put them both together (sort of). Because you told me in the chat thing that people would forget to change the game selector, but then if they will remember to change the control selecter then it's ok. The only downcast is that you have to write stuff in twice if you're doing stuff for the game selector as well. --Melon247 17:09, 12 February 2009 (UTC)
