    instead of showing the latest news, now they're just showing the news from the 1990's, who the hell changed this site...this Fushigipedia!
    bulbapedia was much better.

    Well, I'm already mad about the fact that it's been a whole entire month since they locked it, and there were about twenty-six other jokes I had to ensure that I didn't fall for. I even ranted about it on my blog...

    I do not like April Fool's Day, unless it's me who's doing the practical jokes.

    To help explain what Nate said:

    There is only one similarity between Wikipedia and Bulbapedia, and that is the software the sites run on, MediaWiki. We have absolutely no affiliation with Wikipedia. While Bulbapedia can be referred to as a Pokemon wiki, and as a Pokemon encyclopedia, the proper noun Wikipedia is incorrect.

    I know that. I didn't mean that we were the Pokémon component of Wikipedia.

    It's kinda like the terms "Frisbee" and "flying disc". If you ask a kid what a Frisbee is and they'll point it out pretty quickly, while if you ask them what a flying disc is they might take a while to get what you mean. Same thing with what I said: most people understand what Wikipedia means, but not necessarily what the term "wiki" means. So when someone asks what Bulbapedia is, they'll get the picture a lot faster—and possibly clearer—if you say "Pokémon Wikipedia" than if you tell them what immewnity said, a Pokémon wiki or encyclopedia (which it is!), and have to explain what a wiki is. Because just like the term "flying disc": we might not all get what it means right away.

    Comprendo?

    I think the differences and similarities between Bulbapedia and Wikipedia have been elaborated on sufficiently. And since we've all figured out what happened to Bulbapedia, I'm closing this thread.
