It wasn't a huge discovery, just figured it was interesting enough to be mentioned :)
    Which page are you talking about? Link please. There is no page titled Safari Zone glitch.

    Alternately, we could use those javascript tabs. I have been told by someone who uses dialup that they work differently to the show/hide buttons, and only load when that section is viewed. Example.

    Does that mean the legality of Appendix:A Sneak Peek at Pokémon is questionable? Or does it not matter since it was technically a commercial?

    Where does Bulbapedia's adoption of the English names for the places come from? I do not know of them being officially confirmed. I think they might have been, but I don't know of the sources.

    I remember that Jello was the one that helped with the confirmation for the new English names last night (I live on Pacific Time).

    Someone that has an early copy of one of the English games is uploading a stream of them playing the game. That's where the names are coming from.

    Speaking of which, we really should get a Bulbanews article about this up.

    Definitely agree, so it would be easier to keep track of.

    This is really more of a question, and I don't think it's really okay to open a thread just for a question. (Someone tell me if they know, so that I know in the future.)

    Anyway, I've noticed that every Pokemon up to Stunfisk/Maggyo has had their pages moved to their English names. I know a few names have been confirmed from Elie's stream, but the question is, how are Conkeldurr, Seismitoad, and even Stunfisk (among others) seen at the third or fourth badge? Moreover, most of them haven't been properly edited to include their name on the actual page (apart from the title). Instead of saying:

    ...it just says...

    Are all of these names confirmed? Are all of these moves authorized?

    If you'll look closer, you'll see the moves have been made by italic people (i.e. Bulbapedia staff). So they're as authorized as authorized can be.

    Also, everything cannot be changed in an instant, they'll get to those article texts eventually.

    Ah. I was just a little confused by this sudden storm of names. I guess I'd better do some editing; I am a member of the 'Pedia, and all.

    I don't remember saying that, but that doesn't matter. Trom's got a Bulbanews article written which basically just refers users to Bulbapedia instead of having a page with every single English name.

    On another note I would suggest that the administrators take down the protection or change protected articles to semi-protect regarding the Generation V stuff, because since everything is pretty much confirmed, the protection against speculation has served it's purpose, and unless if the administrators want to do it themselves, then it would be easier for them to change the protection settings.

    Not happening, at least until after the games' offical release. We may keep them locked for a little bit then, as well... that will be left to the discretion of the Editorial Board.

    People have a tendency to go overboard with speculation and irrelevant information soon after the release of main series titles.
