I think I'm losing it,

Rate this Entry
I can't enjoy Pokémon anymore because of the utter failure of everyone on the wiki.

I fucking hate Generation V for giving us a ridiculous amount of new and really fucking stupid items which no one cares to put the kana of. Or upload the sprites of. Until, of course, Serebii does it, which then everyone rushes to him to jack the information and put it on the wiki formatted wrong.

And then they spell Special Defense with a C. I don't care if you're from the UK. The game spells it with an S. It's spelled with a fucking S. Get used to it.

A million instances of "you" everywhere. It's right there in the welcome. Don't use "you", we're not a walkthrough. Why can't anyone fucking read.

I swear. I come to get what level ESP Psycho's getting Psychic and Morning Sun at, and this is what I find. And it's been like this every day since we unlocked editing after BW's release. And no one seems to care. Not that the "Bulbapedia forums" should concern themselves with the wiki everyone thinks came first. Not like half of the members even know we have a wiki.

I want competent users. Why can't everyone be like I was when I was younger? Sit down, shut up, no one wants to hear about your team of eight Dialga. Lurk moar. Wait until you don't sound like an idiot to say something. And for the love of god, you're a Pokémon fan, SPELL THE WORD RIGHT ON THE WIKI. There's no excuse if you don't know Alt+130 or Option+e-e. There's a é in the character map. A Poké in the character map, even. You have no damn excuse.

And thus concludes my rant. Feel free to feel offended. Me, I'm probably never gonna edit again because for some reason the server didn't accept my changed password, and doesn't accept my old one anymore, so I'm basically fucked out of my account. And of course, it won't email me a new one because it's being fucking retarded. Woo hoo.

    There's no need to be... like that on what people are doing every day on the wiki. The edits are, in my opinion, useful for something. As long as they aren't vandalising the wiki, I'm fine with that, as long as we improve on that.

    We can always fix the mess. not by reverting, but by improving. Some information is better than no information, as long as it's not stolen. And by "stolen", I mean, copy-and-pasted from somewhere else.

    Patience. That's what I usually have. Utter failure isn't what I would call everyone in the wiki. I think they do need some improvement, though.

    And, well, Special Defense/Defence, I can understand, though. Unless they are somehow using a spellchecker that autocorrects?

    Changed passwords? Well, I don't know, but some special characters might not get accepted. And you can always try again. You need to report it to the admins ASAP, since it's your BP account.

    Man, this reply is the longest I ever had! (And I don't think I did a through check!)

    Wow man, calm down.

    Everyone makes mistakes.

    Someone may spell defense with a C, but it's just force of habit, it's not their fault.

    Chillax.

    Force of habit, too bad. Game says S. Wiki says S or else links go wrong.

    We can always fix them when we see it. No need to worry too much about it. I know we're supposed to use "S". So... when someone uses "C", well, just edit it to say "S".

    TTE, I think you may be seeing the past through rose coloured glasses if you think these exact same problems haven't always existed in the past, not just on Bulbapedia, but in the entire Pokémon fandom.
