    You've never been able to edit his site, though. Jeez, you're acting like this is the end of the world.

    Thank God the Pokemon community isn't represented by his site's content anymore. Like Saturn Yoshi said, you should be honored. :p

    (EDIT: For the Bulbapedia link c/p it into your address bar and remove the spaces in "bulbagarden" at the end of the URL.)

    Bulbapedia has slowly been bringing his traffic down and soon no one will care / know about his old reputation as being the best site anymore. God knows it hasn't been for a while. Especially since there isn't really anything unique about it anymore - you can find any sort of content he has on Bulbapedia and other sites now. He doesn't even have unique or exclusive news spare once in a while. According to Alexa you're about equal now, with his site sharply declining and Bulbapedia sharply rising.

    Well soooooorry. I figured, due to the TITLE saying Bulbapedia would be DOWN that that meant NO VIEWING. Now, if it had been worded differently, perhaps people might actually be a bit more calm about it. So, I really am not fully responsible for my misunderstanding.

    And why would I want to edit Bulbapedia? I never said I was going to. I just said that I would use Serebii for my information if Bulbapedia wasn't available.

    Evil Figment (7:59:44 PM): Ryuu, however shakily you started, I've got to hand it to you that you earned my respect the hard way.

    The move will be undertaken for the purpose of having a better and more accurate encyclopedia.
    It sounds like Bulbapedia was going to bring censorship in.

    Alexa has never been a valid way of determining popularity. For the most part, they only count users with their toolbar and most PCs and anti viral programs prevent their toolbar being installed

    My hits have not had a dent in them and are actually the highest they have been since DP's release

    Plus, you say that, but since HGSS came out, I have documented dozens of instances where I update something on my site then within 10 hours, it's been edited onto Bulbapedia so don't say my site is useless
    I own Serebii.net and Serebii Forums, naturally.



    Serebii's signature, now un-censored.

    I don't usually participate in bmgf due to my time being limited, but reading about Alexa made me giggle. It's true that's its probably the only free service of its kind out there, as it is also true that its results are greatly flawed.
    Google does provide enough reading material on Alexa's accuracy (http://www.google.gr/search?q=alexa%20accuracy)

    In the end, we're all better of finding ways to work together than comparing faulse statistics...

    Or, uh, we're updating to English conventions as opposed to Japanese ones.
