Re: Pokebox & Dispute
In regards to the Light type, it will take a while, but I will try to update all the templates to include it. As I don't use the Light type in my games, it never occurred to me to include it. I'll try to get that taken care of. As for the templates, most of them were indeed taken from Bulbapedia with the notable of the exception of the Pokémon Infobox which I coded myself. I was under the impression that Bulbapedia content was free to use, but reviewing their official policy I see that they require attribution. I thank you for bringing this matter to my attention and I will make sure to note which templates were taken from Bulbapedia.---♥ATTH♥ 01:56, August 14, 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, I finally figured it out. The old one is still at Template:PokeBox, I created the new one at Template:PokemonBox (Ryuushu's still using the old one and I didn't want to mess up his articles). The only thing I still need to work on is the automatic categorization; I started the template in the Userspace and it applied the categories to the template itself, not recognizing it as a template. So I'll have to add the code for automatic categorization again. That, and there's still some leftover code for the old multi-form displays, but I didn't want to mess with anything lest I screw up the table (I'm not very good at coding, its a miracle I've managed to make the fixes I did without completely destroying it lol...) Some of the changes I've made include:
- Simplified manual image display: The original template had a dynamic image display designed to display the Sugimori artwork for the most recent game the Pokémon appeared in along with a caption stating which game the artwork was from. I obviously can't code for every fan game, so I decided to just let people pick their own image and caption.
- Custom Region Dex parameter: In addition to the five current regions, the table can now display a Pokédex number for any fan region.
- Habitats in place of footprints. I didn't want a bunch of ugly red links in the table where the footprints should be (since most people aren't going to go through the trouble of making footprint sprites anyway), so I decided to switch out footprints for habitats.
- A dynamic display for Pokémon with form differences. Bulbapedia's infobox displays the data for all forms at the same time; however, its coding was dependent on currently existing forms and it would be a hassle to re-code the table every time someone made a new form-changing Pokémon (not that I could figure out how to do that if I needed to). So I came up with a compromise: Rather than displaying the data for all forms at once, it displays the data for one form at a time with tooltips displaying the data for the other formes. The displayed form changes every time you visit the page (Bulbapedia already does this with the artwork and type colors for certain Pokémon with form differences as well as Arceus's type; I just applied the concept to the whole table.) The method of employing the dynamic display is a bit complicated, but I'mn working on adding instructions to the template at the moment.--♥ATTH♥ 23:26, August 19, 2010 (UTC)
Not yet. I'll get to work on that as soon as I'm done with the PokemonBox instructions.--♥ATTH♥ 01:27, August 20, 2010 (UTC)
When I made the original PokeBox template, the parameters I used were different from the ones Bulbapedia uses (like "img" instead of "image" or "groupn" instead of "egggroupn"). So if I replaced the old template with the new one (which still uses the same parameters as Bulbapedia), some of the information would be missing on their pages.--♥ATTH♥ 03:19, August 20, 2010 (UTC)
I suppose. I'll see what I can do.--♥ATTH♥ 03:26, August 20, 2010 (UTC)
I'm did as you suggested and merged the old and new PokeBox templates. The only thing I couldn't salvage was the gender ratio determination since the old one went with specific percentages while the new one relied on the games' gender threshold. However, it's a simple task to add the gender code to the template, so no harm done. I also added color templates for the Light type and added a TypeEffectiveness subtemplate for games that use the Light type, while still retaining the main template for games that don't include it. I can also make more type effectiveness templates for any other fan type that pops up, so if you see any, let me know.--♥ATTH♥ 07:57, August 20, 2010 (UTC)
Actually, it's not the infobox that's the problem. When you add a parameter without defining it, the template sometimes doesn't display correctly. See those little text remnants under Dragozou's name? That's because you haven't set jname or jtrans equal to anything. Either assign them values or delete them and it should display fine. The same thing goes for the regional dex. You've declared a region name but the dex number is a null value, which the template doesn't know what to do with. Also, since Kanto is already coded into the template, specifying Kanto as the sixth region causes the Kanto Dex number to display twice if you do specify a number. The solution is the same; either give it a dex number (and change the region name to avoid duplicate displays) or delete the rdex parameter entirely. As for the ability, the template was already coded to link to the ability's article. So when you put [[DragonHeart]] instead of just DragonHeart, it tries to link to an article entitled [[DragonHeart]] instead of one called DragonHeart. I've changed the template so it doesn't create automatic links and either declared or deleted the necessary parameters and Dragozou's page looks good now, but for future reference, remove any parameters that don't have values and check whether or not certain values already link to their articles or not before you include a link. You can change any of the items I added as well as add the ones I removed, check the template's talk page for instructions.--♥ATTH♥ 09:47, August 20, 2010 (UTC)
It's not the infobox that's causing the problem. For some reason, headers don't display correctly if there's no information under them. Just add something to the trivia section and it should show up properly. And remember to delete items from the infobox if you're not using them, those null values are are causing a bunch of expression errors as I'm sure you've noticed.--♥ATTH♥ 01:25, August 22, 2010 (UTC)
Okay, I fixed the gender thing. Now it's just gender = x, where x is the percentage of males, or male if it's 100% male, female if it's 100% female, or none if it's genderless. Sorry for it being so complicated before; blame Bulbapedia lol...--♥ATTH♥ 03:02, August 22, 2010 (UTC)
Hi, and before you say anything else, I'm just here because Art requested me to critique (or something like that) his Pokemon. I'm really no expert, but he insisted. I will be going back to SFW soon.
I see you tried to edit the TypeEffectiveness template to display the Light type. I actually already made a separate template for that; this way people can still use the old one if they don't want to use the Light type. Sorry for not pointing that out; I made a note on the main template page so that other people can find it.--♥ATTH♥ 14:04, September 1, 2010 (UTC)
Before you say it, no, I am not coming back. -Silver
I meant to the wikia, if you checked my journal. -Silver
(wide grin) Well, it's about time!
TLB:Lamp oil, rope, pizza?
He was the first one I met on this site, and the first one along with Ryushu to make my stay here worthwhile. Now he's gone. Cmdr Lightning 04:05, March 9, 2011 (UTC)
Restoring his comments on the blog would be an insult to him, and that would sever any ties we have left. Cmdr Lightning 04:10, March 9, 2011 (UTC)
Vell, the thing is I respect him too much to do that. If he wanted his comments on the blog to stay deleted, then I'll honor that request. Cmdr Lightning 04:17, March 9, 2011 (UTC)
Just so you know, I'm there now. Cmdr Lightning 04:43, March 9, 2011 (UTC)
Not to interrupt your tirade, but I found out something strange. Raging Blast, the one who started criticizing this wiki the minute he arrived hasn't said anything after this sequence of events happened. There may be something very suspicious about his intentions. Cmdr Lightning 22:14, March 9, 2011 (UTC)
I know, but I have reasons to believe that Raging Blast may have tried to widen the whole rift until we came to this point. He hasn't shown up since this happened, which makes him all too suspicious. I'm keeping a close watch on him. Cmdr Lightning 22:26, March 9, 2011 (UTC)
I did not complain to MY (MS goes by that usually.) I saw that I was acting starange, and asked me what was wrong. So I told him, and he made a blog about it. Doe that get your [bleep] outta my buisness? Yes, this is my slightly ticked side. I tried to be nice to you, but you didn't return the favor. This breaks part of the rules (That Cam aprroved!) and will result in a block if this continues! -Universal Guardian1003 22:36, March 9, 2011 (UTC)
Pokemon Survivor App.
Kagimizu, please check this out and apply to it if you can
It is a new experiment I wish to try out.
P.S.- Your knowledge of the show Survivor is not required. You should still be able to fill out the basic facts in the application form.
Keeper111 21:12, May 8, 2011 (UTC)
Sorry, I know it looks jumbled and confusing. What should I do to make it more understandable?
Keeper111 21:26, May 8, 2011 (UTC)\
Fixed It Up
Keeper111 21:48, May 8, 2011 (UTC)
Sigh, look I apologize if it still looks confusing, but there is information that REALLY needs to be on the form. I Tell me what you think I should get rid of and I will. Everything you find confusing about this. Keeper111 22:35, May 8, 2011 (UTC)
Now I understand what your saying, and I moved the excessive coding into another section of the talk page.
Keeper111 23:12, May 8, 2011 (UTC)
There. I actually cut them from the site and put a notice saying if it's not in the section anymore, I got it. But can you please tell me what to do with the coding. What Should the application look like?
But the excessive coding is gone! I cut and pasted both of the previous applications into a word document! What now?
Keeper111 23:46, May 8, 2011 (UTC)
I think and hope I finally get what your talking about. The maximum is 3 applications, and they cannot all be from the same region. I'm going to go fix it now
Keeper111 23:50, May 8, 2011 (UTC)
Cool. BTW, can you tell me what the natures of your pokemon are? Keeper111 00:24, May 9, 2011 (UTC)
It's doing it as we speak. That image messed up the text. Besides, the coding was pointless, it did nothing to my text. I would never go through so much work typing that, when it did nothing what-so-ever. --Universal Guardian1003 01:23, May 9, 2011 (UTC)
- Yep, something's seriously messed up there. I created the page, came back, it was gone. It wasn't even in the recent activity. -Universal Guardian1003 01:40, May 9, 2011 (UTC)
Hey, you think you can inspect any of my other Pokemon for problems? there's a list of them on my User Page. IceBite 18:54, May 9, 2011 (UTC)
I kinda don't HAVE a way to make images for them, hence the FFXII pictures. If I did have a way, I would make them a little more unique, but since I don't...... IceBite 13:24, May 11, 2011 (UTC)
I'm.....really not comfortable with that. I'm still stressing over the fact that, since my personal computer is infected, I can't put up an image for Tyranicadus. I much prefer having images that at least look simialr to the way I'll eventually make the Pokemon look. I'm sorry, but, as soon as my computer is up and running agai, I'll see what I can do to replace those images with ones that are more unique. Ok? (PLEASE?!) IceBite 18:05, May 11, 2011 (UTC)
Well, I just put in my articles that I will be making more unique pictures when I get the chance. Just consider the current ones 'place-holders' (especially Arcadius's).
Good News: I now have foil models of the new forms for Icthioniv and Larviko. Bad News: I cannot post them until I get my parents to let me use one of their webcams to take a picture of them, then I have to wait until my computer is virus-free so I can color them correctly and post them.

Sure. It's most likely part of their CSS or JS. — N 05:27, July 25, 2011 (UTC)

Please vote for a new bureaucrat
- 1. Q) Why did you join Sonic Fanon Wiki?
A) I came here after a few weeks/months of exploring Sonic News Network. As whgy I decided to stay, not sure. I did have a severely crappy fanfic, and decided to become permenant here after deciding to start over. So far, I have yet to regret a moment of it.
- 2. Q) What's your favorite version of Sonic?
A) Definitely the Sonic the Comic version. I'm a huge fan of STC. That version also highlights many faults that Sonic has later when it becomes STCO.
- 3. Q) What was your first impression of the wiki and its community?
A) Can't remember...I don't think it was too positive at first, but damn, did that change fast.
- 4. Q) Are there any particular sources of inspiration for your ideas?
A) A lot of my earlier ideas were DBZ inspired. That changed around a year ago. Now, my ideas come from many different series' and many different random thoughts in my head. A good few of my characters were inspired by friends ideas.
- 5. Q) Who are your closest friends on the wiki?
A) That's easy. SPop120, Monk the Cat, Kiramazing, DestinyHeart, CrymsonShokwave, and Frost the Wolf.
- 6. Q) What do you think of the wiki as a whole?
A) The wiki is a melting pot of massive amounts of ideas, ideals, and different personalities stored on what I think may be silicon somewhere wherever they store all the data for the internet.
- 7. Q) What's your most bitter memory from your time on SFW?
A) Does the time I had to leave for a really long time count?
- 8. Q) Favorite Mobian species (what animal species do you like most in Mobian form)?
A) I'd either say Hedgehog, or Wolf.
- 9. Q) What's the most unique (in a good way) fan-character you've ever come across?
A) Valentin. A character by FainTheGreatest who would randomly and uncontrollably change form every 30 minutes or so. Not effective in battle, and could end up being pretty dangerous with constant transformations, but a unique idea nonetheless.
- 10. Q) Any future plans for your time on SFW?
A) To Conquer the World!!!!! ...I mean...um...I guess finish up a few roleplays and improve on my characters. Nothing else planned, really. (Whisper) No one supsects anything..
How does it feel to be Featured User?
- 1. Q) How did you come across the Sonic Fanon Wiki?
A) A little over a year ago, I was looking for a way to send SEGA an idea for a new character. After looking around on the web, I came across SFW and was hooked. I actually forgot about sending SEGA my idea once I joined SFW. And I've been here since summer of 2012.
- 2. Q) What originally got you interested in Sonic the Hedgehog?
A) Funny you should ask that. I used to not want anything to do with Sonic the Hedgehog. When I was younger, I actually thought he was creepy. However, guess my first step towards becoming a Sonic fan was Super Smash Bros. Brawl, where Sonic was a playable character. After Brawl, I started to take an interest, and played other Sonic games like '06, Rush, Black Knight, Generations, etc. But I'd say the most important factor of me becoming a fan of the Blue Blur was the show Sonic X. After watching several episodes of that on Saturday mornings, I officially became a fan.
- 3. Q) What inspired your very first Sonic FC?
A) Honestly, I don't really remember my exact inspiration for it. I think it had something to do with me not agreeing with any of the current popular Blaze pairings (especially Silvaze), and I wanted to make a character that would be a good match for her. =P Static the Cat was originally supposed to be just that. As I started working on him, however, he started to become more of my fursona than a SEGA character idea. His powers were greatly inspired by the game inFamous, which I had thought was the coolest game I had ever played in terms of superhero games. Static's whip was a small tribute to Indiana Jones, which I was starting to become a bit of a fan of during that time. Everything after that is history, and he is now my fursona.
- 4. Q) Who are your closest friends and inspirations on the wiki?
A) My closest friends on SFW are CrymsonShokwave, Monk the Cat, True Lycalo (formerly known as SonShadSilv003), SPop, HS664, and Kiramazing. I'm also good friends with Chamesthehero, and I've started a good friendship with Bladesparkz and TheDarkMantis15. As far as inspirations go, I'm not entirely sure. I'd say Smash the Echidna and Kagimizu are two of my biggest inspirations. It was actually Smash's blog about character making that made me finally decide not to have Static in a relationship with Blaze. His blog also helped me better develop some of my other characters. One more person who bears special mention is Flametfh. Although he is no longer on this wiki, he was a good friend and a sort of inspiration to me in some ways.
- 5. Q) What are some of your other hobbies and interests?
A) In my freetime, I like to play videogames (I like shooters and action games the best). I also do some drawings when I get around to it. When given the chance, I also love a good game of soccer.
- 6. Q) Any plans for the future, be it wiki-wise or real life?
A) I'm not sure. I definitly need to finish up my character articles, and I'm also attempting to make a new roleplay that I hope will tie with ones like Genetix and Odyssey. As for real life, I plan on attending College after I finish High School. I'm not sure what kind of career I want. Probably something related to video games. =P
- 7. Q) How do you feel about Sonic Fanon Wiki and its populace?
A) I like SFW, but I can't help but feel like it's in a recession of some sort. Hopefully, SFW will see things pick up sooner or later. A place like this is definitly a magnet for creative minds. It draws in a lot of talented and creative people and I've seen great things come from it. I like most of the residents on SFW, but there are also some I'm not too fond of. I guess every place has people like those...
- 8. Q) What would you say is the stupidest thing you've ever done on the wiki?
A) I'm not really sure. Hopefully, I haven't made any noteworthy dumb mistakes.... yet.
- 9. Q) What would you say is your proudest moment on the wiki?
A) I have four moments that tie for proudest. The first is meeting my closest friends Monk the Cat and CrymsonShokwave. The second is the Crymatic pairing, as I consider that one of my most important acheivements. The third is the making of my first roleplay Nightmare in Station Square. That roleplay saw a great amount of attention and had a good run while it lasted. I hope to revive that roleplay someday soon. Finally, my fourth proudest moment was winning my first roleplay battle in the Neo Steller Battle Royale with Static the Cat against Quake the Hedgehog.
- 10. Q) How do you feel about Sonic Boom?
A) The game or the song? =P Just joking. To be honest, I didn't even know the game was being made until very recently. I don't really know much about it, but I hope it will turn out to be a great addition to the Sonic franchise.
