    Default Suggestions, ideas, and problems

    Have a good idea for Bulbapedia? See some content that needs added or needs fixing? Say it here!

    I've noticed that there are far too many individual threads saying "Hey Pedia dudes I can has good idea." Let's make it simple for both the people who post the ideas and the people who look at them.

    I'm surprised I didn't see anything about the Team Rocket members' names. Most (at least of the teams) are named after famous outlaws/criminals/etc. Jessie and James = Jesse James, Butch and Cassidy = Butch Cassidy, and Atilla and Hun = Attila the Hun.

    Would you mind showing me where it is then? Because I've looked at the Team Rocket members article, Jessie and James' article, and the trio article, and there's nothing about it, even in the trivia section.

    It's possible I missed it, but the obvious section would be the trivia section, and I was unable to find it there.

    Content? Ok, good. We should have a page for Pokémon-X, the webcomic. It has been running since 2003, and is fairly popular.

    I brought it up with the Echidna, but he said to take it to the forums and ask here. The only qualm he seemed to have was that the last comic is dated February 20th. However, Recon has been updating daily, or twice daily, after falling behind in December, and is catching up.

    I'm probably going to spam this thread slightly until user registration comes back...

    Um, anyway, the EV page doesn't actually say who gets the EVs - i.e. the pokémon that lands the final blow, or any pokémon that gets experience. And that really is kind of important. I know it probably seems obvious to you guys but the page really is rather ambiguous.

    That's it for now.

    Every Pokemon involved in the battle gets full EVs.

    Maybe we should do for fanfics and fancomics what we did for hack games -- have one article on the subject in general, with a list of the most notable examples.

    On a less serious note, some other wikis hold popularity polls where two characters/places/items/etc go head-to-head. Maybe we could try something similar?
    Examples:
    http://zelda.wikia.com/wiki/Zeldapedia:Temple_of_Courage
    http://finalfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/Final_Fantasy_Wiki:Dragon's_Neck_Colosseum

    I like that idea. It solves the problem of having useless stubs everywhere.

    But then we get everyone and their mom adding their things in; there's alot more fanfics and fancomics than hacks.

    We'd need a stricter policy on why fanfic/comic a is notable, but b isn't than what we have for the hacks.

    At least, probably.

    I'd like to suggest some technical changes to improve performance/decrease bandwidth use:
    * Use transparent HTTP compression (gzip) on Javascript and CSS files, and (on this forum) the HTML - you'd save 50kb for wiki visitors, and 200kb for forum visitors plus ~60-100kb for each forum page - and they'd load much faster. "AddOutputHandler DEFLATE text/plain text/html text/css text/javascript text/xml" should do it in Apache if the deflate module is loaded, else see link above.
    * Add a very long cache time to site images/js/css that are not likely to change (or which can be easily changed by changing the path to them). /w/skins/ is a prime example - the images don't change, and the css/js is accessed with a version parameter so that when it does change when upgrading, the browser will redownload it. The favicon.ico, too.
    * (minor) Upload a manually-sized and compressed copy of EPBase.png for the front page (at the bottom) and use it rather than the auto-thumbnail that's there. It could be 7k (perhaps less if you converted it to 256-color indexed mode) rather than 17k.

    Or none of that stuff at all. Because we really have no way to assess notability.
