Message from the Editor
February 21 015

Howdy everyone and happy February! As we enter into a new decade of Pokémon and Bulbapedia, we figured it was time to share a few changes that have happened since our last update with you all!

It is with heavy hearts that we’re announcing the retirement of Jo The Marten as Bulbapedia’s Head of Games. Bulbapedia’s games section grew exponentially under Jo’s leadership for the past several years; we wish her the best in her well-deserved retirement. Jo’s departure leaves a vacancy on the Editorial Board that will be filled in the coming weeks, so be on the lookout for that.

On a lighter note, a number of very deserving users who have gone above and beyond with their contributions have been hired as staff. Please help congratulate Celadonkey, Daniel Carrero, Frozen Fennec, Ruixiang95, and Wowy who have joined us as Junior Administrators. These users have been dedicated to Bulbapedia for several years and we cannot wait to see how they grow in their new roles!

We have a few promotions within the staff as well! Congratulations to Chosen, CycloneGU, MisterE13, 神奇超龍, Blazingfist, Tiddlywinks, and glik who are moving up in the ranks as well! We know these folks will flourish in their new positions as well.

On a last note, in an effort to simplify staff structure and overall user experience, the Editorial Board has decided to unify the staff of Bulbapedia and the Bulbagarden Archives. This process will be happening over the next several weeks. We hope this change will increase overall cohesion and collaboration between the two projects.

Lastly, we would also like to thank every user who has contributed to the wiki in any way. Bulbapedia would not be the place it is without all of you.

Acting Editor-in-Chief, Bulbapedia
