Removing Talk Page comments
TCG text formatting
Bold is something done for the subject of an article, it's not something done specifically for TCG things. Expansion articles have two subjects, both the international and equivalent Japanese set, so they both get bolded the first time the names pop up.
While international expansions are officially italicized, we don't bother with it outside the lead-in as it causes a lot of visual clutter and looks weird when combined with Japanese sets which aren't italicized. Same goes for TCG Series (which is capitalized). Decks, card names, and evolution stages aren't italicized. Some card classifications like LV.X have italicization, some don't, but the "Pokémon" part of it never is.
- Please don't make this sound like laws have been broken, they are simply the rules that you're choosing to impose today, rules that mean absolutely nothing, and if all this visual clutter is so offensive, feel free to change it. 48Pills (talk) 19:03, 14 April 2020 (UTC)
- This is the explanation you requested for me reverting your edits. So that when I do remove the unnecessary formatting, you don't add it back and don't continue making the mistake of using too much of it. If you don't agree with these standards, you're free to argue to change them, but you do need to follow them. glikglak 21:32, 14 April 2020 (UTC)
While there is no strict rule on when to archive, but you are clearly archiving to get rid of messages you don't like. That is not how it's done. You do not archive your talk page just because you don't like what other people tell you. They are trying to help you to become a better contributor. If you decide to be arrogant and archive this message, there will be consequences. Thank you.--ForceFire 06:10, 15 April 2020 (UTC)
Talk page history
I've restored your talk page history. Apologies for the deletions I had to do—because the history was originally restored by copy-pasting the missing contents rather than merging the history in, it caused a bit of a mess. --SnorlaxMonster 13:10, 15 April 2020 (UTC)
I am not the "rebel" or "maverick" you appear to have concluded I am. I appreciate that for each of you, this is a part of your own little world and of vital importance, and you must have everything just as you like it, but people do not go to the trouble of becoming a member of a site like this simply for their health. I find the site very useful and, being OCD, what started as fixing the occasional typo or spelling mistake, led to rewriting the occasional paragraph or fixing a bad link, which in turn led to the universal boldening, italicising, uppercasing and adding of dashes. This thing that has you all up in arms is not vandalism or an act of deliberate visual pollution, it was, in the most part, an attempt to make the pages more consistent. Remove every apostrophe and you will still find a mixed bag of boldening, italicising and uppercasing, OK the dashes were experimental, no one was hurt, except maybe one or two of your sensitivities, and don't be so resolute that the reason I deleted your messages was that I didn't like them for the reason you have .assumed. The first line of your introductory message says "Be nice to everyone. It's in the code of conduct", and yet since I joined the treatment received has been everything but nice, the first two messages are so patronising as to be offensive, the rest are petty and belligerent. I am an adult, so I don't need anyone's constant approval, on the other hand, I don't need constant criticisms either, especially not for voluntarily attempting to help. So, you do whatever you want, delete what you will, the account if it makes you feel better, I won't give a damn either way, this will still be nothing more than a useful tool. Having read most of your profiles over the last months it has become abundantly clear to me, we will never speak the same language. - unsigned comment from 48Pills (talk • contribs)
As I have stated before, do not archive for the sake of getting rid of warnings or advice from other members. And considering what you typed out in the link to your "archive", it would appear that you are still doing so to ignore your messages, to sweep them under the rug. As you have repeatedly done this, and have not clarified whether you are or are not archiving just to get rid of the messages, I have move protected your talk page for 6 months. This means you may not "archive" your page unless you give a good reason why it should be archived.--ForceFire 15:34, 3 May 2020 (UTC)
- Once again, you seem so suredly convinced of my motives for everything, even though this time I thought I could not have made the reason clearer. Are you really sure my lack of clarification was your motive for move protecting the talk page for 6 months, I mean, is that really your idea of consequences? I am so bitterly disappointed in you Force Fire, lame, lame, so, so lame. 48Pills (talk) 15:33, 3 May 2020 (UTC)
- Your message above this section surely doesn't clarify why you archived your talk page when the only content was advice and warnings from other users, including a staff member. Sure, the very first message may be a touch rude, but it's not offensive. And what you wrote here, seemed aggressive and unnecessary, and it really comes off as you not wanting to acknowledge any messages you've received previously. The move protection will last for 6 months, unless you can give a very good reason for why your talk page should be archived, and if the staff feels it's good enough, it could get removed or reduced.--ForceFire 06:16, 4 May 2020 (UTC)
