Personal user editing

Six edits in a rows just recently :/ Remember the userspace policy. I know you want to officially publish that talkbar thing but it's not essential editing. —darklordtrom 22:32, 31 August 2010 (UTC)

I'm trying to avoid saving edits as much as I can. I'll put it on hold or something if necessary to stop clogging up the server. Also, does the "Payout" page get the same treatment? Because I've made like twenty edits to that in the past two days and there hasn't been a peep. It's because it's a prototype mainspace page, right? Ztobor 22:34, 31 August 2010 (UTC)
Yes, that's right. Payout will become an article and we like that... but what you're making is essentially a superawesome usertag for a talk page... and I'm sure you'd warn someone if they spent that many edits on a usertag. I know you're probably doing as few edits as you can, but... yeah. Messy. —darklordtrom 22:36, 31 August 2010 (UTC)
To quote my awesome template page, which your payout page is on by the way, "Userspace limits do not apply to anything appearing on this page, though it is still important to keep the preview button in mind." MaverickNate 22:38, 31 August 2010 (UTC)
Just a tip for the HP bar you have, you will need to put in defaults for the parameters. If there is no default, and nothing is entered for that parameter, it gets left as {{{parameter}}} Then the {{PAGESIZE:}} 'template' breaks when it finds a { inside it. If you put {{PAGESIZE:User talk:{{{username|Ztobor}}}|R}} then it will still work the same, but it will default to your page if nothing is specified, rather than breaking (and it'll also mean that it can be previewed normally). Oh, and for the width, you'll need to make sure that it stays as a percentage which caps at 100. That is where the 100 - whatever must be kept with 100, so it'll stay inside the confines of the table.
I'll fill in the width later. Technically, it should actually be pixels the way I've done it, and the template will be designed so it won't ever exceed that. I guess percentage also works, though. Ztobor 23:29, 31 August 2010 (UTC)
And for the roundy, the classes or sub-templates are roundytop, roundyleft, roundybottom, roundyright, roundytl, roundybl, roundybr and roundytl. Werdnae (talk) 23:07, 31 August 2010 (UTC)
That's sneaky... Ztobor 23:29, 31 August 2010 (UTC)

Bulbagarden Tier subpage

Hey--if Smogon's actual tiers don't have a page, our tiers don't deserve one either (as much as I love the idea.) If it's for private use, that's fine, but if it's a "to be mainspaced" thing, it should be deleted, I think. -- evkl (need to talk?) 05:20, 15 February 2011 (UTC)

To add to this, based on your comment on Adyniz's talk page, it seems you only asked for the mainspaceable "title" to circumvent the userspace policy. This just doesn't seem like such a good thing to do, especially since you edited a single private userpage five times today. MaverickNate 05:25, 15 February 2011 (UTC)
Which is the exact page I was asking about >_>
At any rate, I only asked to circumvent it because I wanted it to eventually appear as a project page or something. Ztobor 12:56, 15 February 2011 (UTC)
Wait, they don't? Then what is the Tiers page for? Ztobor 12:44, 15 February 2011 (UTC)
I don't think it's for their tiers per se. Long before they had the "official" list the same general "Uber/OU/UU/NU" structure was in place. It just so happens that they have the market cornered.
At any rate, I think it'd be pretty presumptuous for us to have our own tier page without our tier ever being used in the wild... -- evkl (need to talk?) 22:36, 15 February 2011 (UTC)
It won't be moved out of the userspace immediately, of course. The Payout page waited a whole month before it was moved out because information was missing. This article would just have to wait longer. (At any rate, I get what you mean.) Ztobor 22:38, 15 February 2011 (UTC)
