  • Use wikicode and link templates when adding content to a page.
  • Use proper grammar and spelling, and read the manual of style.
  • You can't create a userpage until you've added to the encyclopedia. It's a privilege. See the userspace policy.
  • Use talk pages to resolve editing disputes. Don't "edit war," or constantly re-edit/undo the same thing on a page.
  • If you have a question about something, be proactive. Take a look at our FAQ. If you're still stuck, ask for help. The staff won't bite.

Pokéblock Berry tiers, Leppa

You seem to have missed including the Leppa Berry when you added the table of ORAS Berry tiers to Pokéblock. Could you check the guide again and add it in? Thanks. Tiddlywinks (talk) 03:32, 6 March 2015 (UTC)

I must have missed that one... Sorry! I already added it to the correct tier (Very Low, in case you're wondering). Bigpboy (talk) 03:51, 6 March 2015 (UTC)

BTW

Thanks for catching the little mistakes I or others (probably just I) made on the area articles. When trying to quickly throw together 13 or so area pages, and doing copying and pasting everywhere while verifying data yourself (instead of using other sources), it's easy for little mistakes to creep in. Good to know someone else is checking that as well! CycloneGU (talk) 23:04, 8 May 2015 (UTC)

Special Stages

Just to update you as a regular editor at Pokémon Shuffle, the EB has approved the stage split into unique pages, but with Special Stages all as one page. You will see that main stages and expert stages are now linked via a table to new pages, which themselves will be expanded over time. Please use the new pages (in particular for new main stages to the newest area, or new Expert stages, as the rest just need expansion) for future updates. Prior to special Stages being moved into mainspace use, which will likely be tomorrow, you'll find it at Abcboy's userspace under the title "User:Abcboy/Special Stages". Thanks!

Pokémon Safari

I checked some page edits dating back to June. This edit shows some added information for the second edition of the Safari. From what I remember, they were originally titled just "Pokémon Safari"; someone later on added the numbering, and did it to match that used on "The Daily Pokémon", something I wasn't too sure we should do, but I let it be. As you can see in the linked edit, we had used "First release" and "Second release" at this point, somewhere before the numbers appeared. If you check along the edits following, you should see the third added somewhere in the period of August 3, where I see I noted realizing that Safari had seven in it and also used the Pastebin to start adding the encounter rates for all three.

The last Safari-related edit at the original page was PartHunter doing a slight reword on it. I don't recall if other changes were made during any wholesale edits to the entire section as a whole before it got moved into the Special Stages page. This is the first Safari that doesn't actually use the title "Pokémon Shuffle", so we should find a good solution for this; I would perhaps, for now, just go back to using "First release", etc. and include the proper name for the fourth release in the prose under "Fourth release". CycloneGU (talk) 18:06, 20 October 2015 (UTC)

I've done more digging. The event data for the current event, in the Pastebin, shows as:
Title 1: Pokémon Safari
Title 2: A New Pokémon Safari!
For past events, per the file "Event stages (1.1.5 to 1.2.10)", they all appear as:
Title 1: Pokémon Safari
Title 2: Pokémon Safari Appears!
Based on this finding, and based on title logic, we should have titled the first three under "Pokémon Safari Appears!" all this time (just like Title 2 for a nearby event is "Pignite Blazes onto Stage!", which we use), and the fourth falls under the current title. I will reorganize the section to attribute all three correctly and then anchor all Pokémon pages affected to the new links. Feel free to follow up behind me in case I leave something broken.

Kudos

Thanks for keeping things going on the various Shuffle pages. I only thought of checking the Skills page today and also checked the list page again for the first time in a while. Glad to see those are being updated. =) I haven't been updating right at 1 AM like always (I should again, DST has ended) and am usually keeping an eye on Special Stages now, since that needs changes weekly for events being reintroduced anyway, and also periodically updating Pokémon pages for any introduced into the game (I need to do the new main stages now, in fact, plus Latios and the storm duo). But again, glad to see I'm not the only person keeping his eyes glued to the project.

Out of curiosity, are you planning to be involved with the Pokémon Picross pages when it releases? I'm a huge Picross fan (since 2004; you'll find an account I created at conceptispuzzles.com, in fact, and still use at times). When the Picross game releases, I'll be likely spending a lot of time in there so I can help put those pages together. I don't think there will be too much at first besides stage data, but it will be my new project.

As a side note, per the one edit comment, "new format" was not the wording I should have used; I instead meant to say a new version of the One chance event, and explain that. Even people who are anal about how things sound (like me) make mistakes. =) CycloneGU (talk) 00:34, 28 November 2015 (UTC)

I'll probably wait for the dust to settle, and only make necessary edits (such as fixing mismatching Pokémon names/icons) at first. If the game continues to update like Shuffle, or if there's a substantially large amount of content (like Super Mystery Dungeon, which I'm currently going through myself before going through to put information on BP with), then I'll probably help when that time comes.
Also, I couldn't help but notice this template at an earlier point. Do you feel like it should be added to Shuffle pages like those for the Skills and List that are constantly being updated? Bigpboy (talk) 00:50, 28 November 2015 (UTC)
I'm going to suggest no on the template. While it is a rapidly updating game (weekly or sometimes more, occasionally no updates for a week), it's not something that is changing after the update; once the update data is added, it's no longer a current event that can change at any second (like every terrorist attack since Wikipedia became a thing), but instead a static page of data that is complete data, and not something that is subject to change on its own. My wording might be convoluted, but yeah; once it's up to date, we wait for the next update. There is no guarantee they will continue to update (but they certainly will), so the template does not fit.
I'm waiting to see what they do with the Picross game, as well. I can't see them giving you 300 free puzzles when the eShop has six games with less than that for $5 or $6 apiece. My guess is the first area will be free to play, then they will sell you more in chunks like on Stretcmo, which I completely abandoned after the starter puzzles because I didn't like the concept (yes, I know it's like earlier games, I just viewed it as a demo and didn't like it). The difference here is that I might buy the packs here. The question is how they're integrated into the game. I also wonder if the Picrites will have a secondary purpose to buying access to things that take you to places with several areas in them; much like the Origin Balloon in Pokémon Rumble World takes you to one of six areas, the Picrites might buy something that takes you to Areas 11-15, then another to Areas 16-20, and so on. And they must be bought in turn, gicving you plenty of time to earn the Picrites yourself, and maybe more via Streetpass. People WILL buy the in-app purchase stuff, I am absolutely sure of, so they won't be hurting for money (see the fact there are six Picross games and the Super Famicom group of eight in Japan), I just hope they don't try to push purchases with strict limitations (see the Badge Arcade, which was automatically downloaded via Spotpass to those who didn't get it in the first week or two and literally forbids you to do ANYTHING but play the practice catcher hoping for a lucky single play at an actual machine), as THAT would be a bad policy especially considering many WILL buy regardless.
