    It's not completely accurate, but I think having a certain pagerank/alexa rating might be some sort of standard, if one is applied.

    Would the same go for websites then, too? Because I notice there are some websites like Serebii.net, but then other popular ones like GTS+ aren't mentioned.



    Also, this is an extremely minor detail, but on http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Great_Marsh#Items under Area 2, shouldn't it be "Hidden 3 trees WEST from the rock in the top corner" instead of "Hidden 3 trees from the rock in the top corner"? I say this because generally on that page (and others) the locations seem to be a bit more specific.

    Also also, under Area 3, the Ultra Ball is "Hidden WEST of the train stop"

    Um, can we please mention somewhere, anywhere, that EVs don't exist in the mystery dungeon games? I just wasted a ton of time trying to EV-train tyrogues and I'd like to spare other people similar pain. Or worse pain for trying to EV-train their whole party.

    mmkay, that's it for now.

    Someone please add PP Up (Hidden) to http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Route_217#Items for DP (I dunno about Platinum). It's a little southwest of Ninjaboy Antonio.

    Oh, and add the fact that you can encounter Grimer in Celadon City in FireRed/Leafgreen in Grimer's article. Or at least it says so on Celadon's article and Grimer's dex data.

    http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Team_Galactic_HQ#Items

    In Diamond anyway, the scientist with the lvl. 37 Kadabra gives you 1776 Pokemon Dollars. And if you battle the last two on that list (the grunts) (as a double battle, but I guess you can do them individually; I don't have that info though) you get 2840.

    I wish I'd seen sooner that you guys needed that stuff, 'cause I'd have paid more attention. (I also wish I had an account so I could add it and stop posting, but I'll wait. =D)

    No offense, guys, but I think this thread should be used more for suggestions and ideas to improve Bulbapedia, instead of editing minor things on various articles. For example, something like:

    I think 'Template:MD Red color' to changed to (...), because it seems like it's a better color to represent the game.
    or maybe:

    I suggest we change the method of choosing Featured Articles to (...) because I think this method is better and more efficient than the current one.
    since this is the suggestion/idea thread, not the "Please add/change/fix this" thread. :x

    And now, I'd like to suggest that someone creates a separate thread where people currently without accounts can post new info and point out mistakes so others can fix up the articles with this new information.

"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.
    I'm pretty sure those are VBulletin problems rather than Bulba problems.

    I recall there once being an RSS thread ticker for other people to put on their websites to promote Bulbacast episodes. Seems to have gone since then, but I'd been wondering if there'd be any plans to create a similar widget for the Bulbanews RSS feed. I'd love to showcase news articles on my site but can't code for tofu, so if there were a pre-programmed ticker that could be slotted into a tag, that'd be awesome =)

    No, they are server configuration changes, only one of which specifically relates to the Bulbagarden Forums. The forum software can choose to gzip its output, but it is not the only way to achieve that, and it is probably better to do so at the server level if you have access to the server.

    All other suggestions apply equally to the forum and the wiki. Telling the server to compress Javascript or CSS is an Apache-level directive.

    there is a conflict in the regigigas bulbapedia page and the History of the pokemon world page, the conflict is about the creation of the regi trio, one says humans created the regitrio, the other says regigigas created the regitrio,

    http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/History_of_the_Pok%C3%A9mon_world

    the myth and legend page has a possible connection between the two

    I think that the Amity Square article needs to be updated for Pokemon Platinum, due to the fact that the programmers seem to have changed what can be picked up by certain Pokemon, as well as the Accessories/Berries themselves. They also added the three Starter chains that can pick up Accessories/Berries as well.

    For example: Drifloon in Platinum can now pick up Pink Scale, White Feather, Blue Feather, Thin Mushroom, White Beard, and Magost Berry in addition to the Black Beard it originally could in D/P.

    I propose if it's not already in the making, that in the anime sections of every COTD or otherwise any non notable Pokemon be worked out like Tucker's Anime Pokemon section. Because I really like it, and its a shame only a few pages have this type of layout.

    I agree that there needs to be some sort of explanation on the counter. I thought so even before that person posted this (I don't know how to add to the counter. Same with Bulbanews. At least use the counter to link to the HGSS article.
