There is no need to work up a temper over this, especially when my authority overrides yours. Headlines must have a verb; the versions you and Unown Lord supplied were incorrect. Please refrain from moving the article again. --Argy 11:57, 14 March 2006 (CST)
- Well, fine, if you insist on that article title ... But I don't believe you that article titles need a verb. That's stupid, especially when the tagline has a verb. This really sounds just like your personal style of writing or whatever. And that's a thing that annoys me about Bulbanews; people correct things in article texts which are perfectly fine and correct just because they don't like how it is expressed or because they don't like the style of how it is written while there is no real mistake. (I don't mean grammatical or spelling errors which should be corrected, of course.) I think people should stop changing such things if it's not a real mistake. Or at least use the talk page first. -__- --nYoo 11:45, 15 March 2006 (CST)
- My "personal style of writing"? Absolutely not. It's part of news style, which is accepted and used by news organizations worldwide. Any corrections to stories I make are to make them conform to news style. The reasons headlines must have verbs is because there are many readers who only have time to read the headlines; thus, they must tell more-or-less the point of the story. "New CoroCoro Comic scans April 2006" doesn't tell what is in the scans, so people have to take time to find out when they could have just read the headline. --Argy 09:32, 21 March 2006 (CST)
- I have to agree. The original headline is not very headline-like. I do not quite agree that headlines must have a verb, but certainly they could be more descriptive than 'New CoroCoro Comic scans April 2006' - unless you're planning to make a monthly column out of it. - 振霖T 02:04, 17 March 2006 (CST)
Most months are abbreviated in news style. "January" becomes "Jan." Also, "on" is unnecessary in front of dates in most cases. --Argy 18:46, 29 December 2006 (UTC)
- But months are written out without abbreviations almost everywhere else on the site. I don't see why this "news style" thing has to be followed that strictly. The "on" seemed necessary to me because there was an "in" almost immediately after it in that sentence. --nYoo 19:16, 29 December 2006 (UTC)
- Also, many other articles have fully written out month names aswell. I don't understand why you make such edits that don't correct anything that was false before. "January" isn't false. I'm not sure about the "on" and I understand the point of removing the amazon link, but this thing with month names is just silly. --nYoo 19:43, 29 December 2006 (UTC)
- By the way: Writing either "Web site" or "website" doesn't make a difference, both is apparently correct. Yet another pointless edit. :( --nYoo 21:40, 29 December 2006 (UTC)

- The "pointless" edits are made to conform the site to news style standards. If we want to be seen as and treated like a legitimate news service, we need to conform to the industry standards. We have a style guide, and it is meant to be followed. If you don't like our method, then don't post here.
- Also, please try to minimize the number of consecutive edits you make. --Argy 07:16, 30 December 2006 (UTC)
- I would like to see a legit page that defines "news style" that strictly that it dictates writers to abbreviate month names. I don't see anything like that in the Wikipedia article about news style. And you are always repeating yourself, always repeating "follow news style, follow news style, follow news style!" Why can't you say something new and get more certain?!
- Also, I beleive the contents of the articles are more important for being seen as a news service, not whether month names are abbreviated or not!
- Probably you won't answer me now anymore like you did before until I do something "wrong" again in an article to get your attention. -_- --nYoo 09:35, 30 December 2006 (UTC)
- I checked the Style Guide page (not "news style", you were telling me the wrong term!) again (I was certain that I had read it before) and I see the bit about abbreviating dates now.
- But why do you treat me like a noob or some random user? I'm listed as a staff member but I don't feel treated that way very often.
- And I do know about the license of the articles here, again, I'm not a new member or whatever. -_- --nYoo 10:34, 30 December 2006 (UTC)
- Also, you should really become more communicative. You always write "do this, do that; it is done that way, it is done this way" without explaining. --nYoo 10:38, 30 December 2006 (UTC)
- I am sorry for the lack of effective communication. The most widely-accepted English-language news style is AP Style. This is what I use on my college paper, and it is what most U.S. news organizations use. Of course, I don't expect people not in a real-life journalism field to memorize or even know any of the special formatting. That's why I go in to pretty much every article and make cleanup edits. I edit Zhen's stuff all the time; it doesn't mean I think you're not making good contributions. In the simplest terms, you need not worry about my aesthetic edits because they aren't going to change the content of the article.
- You are more than welcome to ask questions. --Argy 16:39, 30 December 2006 (UTC)
Why did you change "Yukikabli" to "Yukikaburi"? Its bp page says the former is the trademark. And especially so long after the article was posted... --Argy 01:44, 13 March 2009 (UTC)
- I noticed it just today, sorry. "Yukikabli" seemed strange, so I went to look for some Japanese merchandise displaying the name in latin letters and found one, showing "Yukikaburi". It appears to be the correct romanization. Have a look at my Bulbapedia discussion page too. --nYoo 02:53, 13 March 2009 (UTC)
Excuse me Nyoo, I am a user of Bulbapedia and at the moment I am trying to access it but it says error. Can oyu tell why? --Prongs 09:06, 25 March 2009 (UTC)
- There have been some server issues that were probably caused at Bulbapedia. That's all I know. But apparently Bulbapedia's up again. o.op --nYoo 14:05, 25 March 2009 (UTC)
- Probably due to new Mediawiki thing I think. Happens once in a while. *tc26* 14:12, 25 March 2009 (UTC)
- The downtime was intentional to fix something on the wiki. Nothing serious. --Argy 16:26, 25 March 2009 (UTC)
