Still Protected?!


It's seems that after the whole identity crisis war (yes, I admit I was the troll there), this page got protected pretty much forever. But why forever? It has to expire some time. I promise that I won't vandalize it anymore, if that's the case. But if it was edit warring...which I think it was - that's just an insane solution. Most users aren't admins, and they probably never will be. It's been months since this page was open; can't the past just be forgotten? サトシ 01:00, 22 March 2012 (UTC)

I have never understood why it is called Sabrina's Pokemon. Ash left it behind, but she never caught it and Haunter was never said to be stayed with her.--Rocket Grunt 23:44, 4 February 2021 (UTC)

Check the archive of the talk page. There was a poll and the majority agreed to have it at Sabrina's Haunter, the reason being that it was last seen with Sabrina and fans would associate Haunter more with Sabrina than with Ash.--ForceFire 05:05, 5 February 2021 (UTC)
This was in 2011, when the site didn't have strict rules. How would the ownership look like if the decision was made now?--Rocket Grunt 08:58, 5 February 2021 (UTC)
I think it would make sense to nominate this page to be moved again, and have the discussion again. It has been a very long time since the last one. --SnorlaxMonster 00:08, 13 February 2021 (UTC)
So?--Rocket Grunt 11:39, 6 March 2021 (UTC)
So?--Rocket Grunt 16:16, 2 July 2021 (UTC)
Personally I don't think it should be at either Sabrina or Ash, if we're talking about the strict rules today it makes no sense to be at either since it wasn't shown to be captured. I think the third option presented in that poll suits best personally which is an anime page, similar to recurring Pokemon. --Spriteit (talk) 01:09, 7 July 2021 (UTC)
Given that the amount of time Haunter spent on screen when it was accompanying Ash and co., it would be more efficient to have article regarding Ash's Haunter, and redirect Sabrina's Haunter to it since Haunter sticks with Sabrina now, although she didn't catch it.- unsigned comment from Rockapheller (talkcontribs)
Yea. We all clearly agree the best option would be "Haunter (anime)". I'm surpristed it's still not moved after a half year.--Rocket Grunt 11:27, 9 July 2021 (UTC)

Just because the poll took place in 2011, doesn't make it invalid nor does it make it non existent. It happened, and the majority decided "Sabrina's Haunter" was the more appropriate title. Yes, other users may challenge it, but the constant back and forth you like to do is not helping your case. And who are "we all"? the one user that agreed with you? One person agreeing with you does not make a consensus.--ForceFire 12:13, 8 May 2022 (UTC)

Thanks for the proof that the stuff doesn't even let me suggest a name change without a fair discussion and sweeps everything under the carpet.--Rocket Grunt 12:17, 8 May 2022 (UTC)
You're basing an "agreement" off of one person agreeing with you. That's not a consensus. I removed it because of your continual back and forth with Finnish. Yes, he removed it, but you continually reverting him and basically disregarding a legitimate poll really comes off as you trying to get your own way.--ForceFire 12:25, 8 May 2022 (UTC)
So far, I'm only trying to get the page to be nominated to move and expect to get staff's decision and you don't even let me do that. I had a good reason (Sabrina never had Haunter), and support from SnorlaxMonster. I don't see why should Finnish turn it back as the "users vote" is what is being questioned. Nowadays you would NEVER allow random users make a decision about page's name. Maybe the suggested name "Ash's Haunter" is what puts you off, how about "Haunter (anime) as that's how it is with recurring wild Pokemon.--Rocket Grunt 13:01, 8 May 2022 (UTC)
The title of the article isn't the issue here, it's how you go about bringing these things up. You make condescending remarks towards staff because they don't respond to your concerns as quick as you would like them to. When you're told why this article is the way it is, you rebuke it by acting like it never happened solely because it happened 11 years ago. And you go back to edit warring (with Finnish) for the umpteenth time. I don't mind having another discussion about this article's title, but do it in a non-disruptive and civil manner.--ForceFire 13:25, 8 May 2022 (UTC)
