    Just personally, I dislike warning templates. I don't use them if I can avoid it. I prefer to customise the message to the user receiving it and what they did to receive it.

    Something that I think people would find useful is if we put the Pokemon's exp group somewhere in the infobox as well down at the bottom, where it currently is the only place that experience groups are mentioned in all the articles I've looked for them in (which is alot!). Maybe it could go near the bottom of the box between the EV Yield and External Links boxes.

    Isamu Akai - Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia

    He has only been called Isamu Akai in one panel in one chapter in the series' nearly 15 year run. He's called Red by everyone else every other time.

    Same with Kai Midorikawa. Nobody ever calls him that, ever.

    The articles really should be changed to refer to them as Red and Green.

    How about in the pages talking about the movies and the individual seasons, we include images of the DVDs? I own quite a lot of them and I wouldn't mind taking pictures of the front, backs, inserts, and boxes of the box sets if it wouldn't be breaking any copyright laws

    Can a signature (or sign your comments) template be made? *I don't know how to explain that!*

    Definitely no. We used to allow sig templates, but they create a variety of problems in the long term, notably every time a signature is changed, the server must update every page, which puts unnecessary stress on the servers.

    He means a warning template, like the one we have for the Preview Button.

    oh, a warning to tell people to sign their comments.
    eh, we could but im not sure we NEED one. its nicer to leave a personalized warning message (regardless of the wrongdoing) because you can better word the message to fit the warning in particular. specially made warning templates are for specific rule breaking (like userspace abuse). im not against the idea, but i dont feel its particularly necessary. however, if theres a number of people that feel otherwise, i wouldnt have a problem creating one.

    Could we make our own for personal use (still talking about Warning Templates, not Auto-Signing Templates)? I find it easier to use a preprogramed message, rather than making one on the spot.

    Deth's comment was that every message should be customised to the offence and the user. You shouldn't be using a template for the generic warnings, because each user is unique. Each warning should also therefore be unique, apart from the highly specialised ones which already have them. If you want to write up an outline for a message and save it to notepad on your computer, there's nothing wrong with that. But you should be customising it for each user, not just copypasting.

    To be brutally honest, if someone can't tell exactly what it is that the user has done wrong and customize a message to each user and their actions, I'm not sure they should be warning people at all. Very few things are so cut and dried that a pre-written warning actually works well. In this case, a signature template is just waiting to tell someone that links their username manually that it's so we know who left the comment. Or someone who has typed their local time that it's so we know when their comment was left. There's just too much potential for variation.

    Hmm... I wonder whether this strange quirk is a quirk or not.

    Most browsers allow you to set default fonts for web pages. I noticed that setting the default font to something else in Firefox and Chrome causes the Bulbawiki pages to change fonts to what I have selected. So, if I selected Calibri as the font, every single page will use Calibri.

    The same thing does not happen in Internet Explorer and Safari. Opera needs a little bit of further tweaking - simply setting the default font won't do it, and you have to set individual font styles for it to work.

    What's up with that? What's the intended behaviour?

    The policy is to call them what they are most commonly known as. Same reason N isn't at "Natural Harmonia Gropius". Isamu Akai is most commonly reffered to as Red, so that is where his article should be. Same goes with Green.

    We do in more recent movies. If you have DVD covers, go ahead and scan them and add them to articles. If they are the same as posters though there isn't really much point.

    If you read up on the information on Ash's Gliscor, it states that it was given to McCann for training, but Ash later requested that he could have it for an upcoming battle against Paul in the Lily of the Valley conference. It has not been seen since, so it is not known whether it has been sent back to McCann, or deposited in Oak's Laboratory.
