    There is one problem I have with Bulbapedia, and I want to state it.

    Whenever someone replies to an old post on the talk pages, it gets removed.

    I honestly don't know why it's such a big deal. As long as what the person is saying is relevant to the topic on hand, that's all what should matter, right?

    The rule is that you shouldn't reply to a discussion that is over 6 months old as the discussion may have been resolved already. Even if it hasn't, you should create a new section.

    This is the place to ask questions about Bulbapedia, right? If not I'm terribly sorry.
    Regarding images: I've made some (very amateur) maps of Ash's early journeys. The last time I uploaded one of these on the Archives, it went unused and it was eventually deleted. So if I upload them to my WordPress blog instead, could I add them on my userpage for anyone interested? (Is this even possible?)
    Much obliged.

    Yeah, it's perfectly fine to use external personal images in your userspace. All uploads to the Archives must be for use on Bulbapedia or Bulbanews; your image would have been deleted because it was a personal image.

    I noticed that Magic Coat's page says that Teeter Dance is reflected as of generation 5, but Teeter Dance says it's not reflected by Magic Coat. Someone should test it and fix the page that is wrong.

    All images are uploaded to the Archives, then used in the other Bulbasites. If you don't know how to do it, don't try to figure it out... A mistake as small as misspelling the name of the image can be problematic. Can someone fetch Bulbajer a guide?

    No, you don't need the Archives to use images. SnorlaxMonster staes only a few posts above about how we do not allow personal images on the Archives.
    To use a personal image, simply post the raw URL, and the site will show it as an image.

    Ah, I thought that Bulbajer wanted to upload a file. I inferred incorrectly.

    How necessary are the secondary generation names under Generation __ in each generation page's infobox? There's been a fair bit about the name of gen VI and also of gen IV recently, and I feel like the bottom line is that these names are just there for posterity. Other than Advanced Generation, I have almost never seen or heard people refer to the generations by anything other than their number. Would it be possible to motion to just get rid of those all together or vote on removing them or something?

    And if that's not possible, as far as the name listed for gen VI right now, shouldn't that count as speculation. The Japanese logos show a DNA double helix. Genetic information's encoded in DNA, but I don't see how the DNA alone is enough to classify it at this moment as the Genetic Generation. DNA's made up of nucleotides, but we don't go and just automatically name it after that.

    It's not necessary, and we basically decided here to remove it from the infobox and Gen IV onwards. I've gone and actually implemented that change now.

    On pages like these that have infoboxes of Pokémon from Stadium 1 and/or 2, why do we use B/W sprites such as Name:  149.png
Views: 65
Size:  1.1 KBinstead of something from the N64 games themselves?
    I know, of course, that we don't have the models of the Stadium Pokémon, just screenshots of them using moves, but we do have the Gamecube games. Colosseum and XD have given us the boxsprites of each Pokémon. Given that the Gen I and II Pokémon's models and animation are the same, why not use those?
    Wouldn't Lance's Dragonite's infobox for Stadium 2 be more accurately represented by Name:  Box_XD_149.png
Views: 67
Size:  7.7 KB?

    Semi-related question: How does the wiki plan to depict the Pokémon from X and Y in their eventual infoboxes? They're 3D models, just like the console games, so what's the plan?

    We do have stadium models of Pokémon though some are huge and some are small, so it's pretty inconsistent and the models probably won't fit the template or will make the template look... blegh.

    The staff is also working on what to do with the XY models. This is something I made for the mean time.

    That looks perfect and shows other games' models currently not featured. I wouldn't mind using it on every Pokémon's page (but while removing the wikicode for sections we don't have an image for, like PBR and X/Y).
    I made a mock-up of what it could currently and easily look like, increasing the image size a bit. My wikicode skills rely on guesses and the preview button, but I tried.
