Numbered Headings[edit]

The numbers you see on headings are an option in your preferences. Click on My Preferences on the top right of the page, then Misc. Uncheck Auto-number headings. There are a lot of main pages that use headings to separate content, and it wouldn't be helpful to have users removing the headings from the pages because they don't like the results caused by personal preference settings. --~Vizeroth~-- 04:20, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

I'm not particularly worried about changing the page, it's just that removing a header can cause the narrative of the page to descend into drivel. As for consistency, see StrategyWiki:Guide/Organizing the pages#Main_page_of_a_guide or Yoshi's_Island_DS. The page can be changed as you see fit, just add something a little more substantive when removing an element like a header than number beside ToC bothered me, because someone might come along and do what I did, assuming that it was just something random someone did to a page. It would also help to cleanup the page a bit if you do remove a header, as it shows a little more thought was put into the edit (keeping people from coming along and thinking it's just vandalism), and perhaps alleviating the need for a header in the first place.--~Vizeroth~-- 04:55, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

Mischief Makers[edit]

Hey Flagrama, welcome back. Not sure if it will help you or not, but feel free to blatantly rip info from my old Mischief Makers FAQ (here). I always meant to do something with it here, but never got around to it. Thanks for working on the guide, that's a great game. Procyon 16:47, 21 May 2015 (UTC)

Don't worry, your edits look great. When and how to use the button images is a bit of a personal preference. I try not to overkill it; if I mention a particular button combination once in a paragraph, I don't like to repeat it beyond that time. You always have to ask yourself: Have I added so many images that it distracts the reader and makes it hard to see the text. But that's subjective. Personally, I think you came up to the line, but you didn't cross it, so that's cool. Some of the admins will come in a clarify any edits if they feel something wasn't phrased coherently, so don't worry about that. Just enjoy working on the guide. Procyon 00:37, 22 May 2015 (UTC)

Regarding Your Template Suggestion for PKMN Emerald[edit]

Sorry for only now getting back to you. While making a whole host of templates for Pokemon encounter tables and the like sounds like a great idea, I don't know how to do that. Could you walk me through the process, if possible? Pakuchi (talk) 15:35, 1 December 2021 (UTC)

Alright, I'll look into it later when I'm back from school. Thanks for the advice! Pakuchi (talk) 15:50, 9 December 2021 (UTC)
Actually, upon looking at the existing templates, it appears that only one trainer battle can be put in per template use, while using the prettytable method allows for the entire list of trainer encounters to be in a single table. It looks tidier, like you said, but what I'm wondering is if it's possible to edit the template such that multiple battles can be on a single template use, unlike what it currently is (an example of current usage would be on Route 116).

Hi, it's me again. I've figured out how to make a template, and such have created this: Template:Pokemon Trainer Table. It's very similar to the old template, but has multiple quality of life improvements, ranging from each game having it's own card colour, to having three sets of details parameters for the trainer's name, the pokemon they use, and the reward from defeating them. Could you check it over before I add it to any pages? Pakuchi (talk) 16:09, 15 December 2021 (UTC)
