Interaction[edit]

Are you the same snowlax monster who interacted with me on Bulbapedia?—cyberpower ChatOffline 20:52, 20 May 2012 (UTC)

Yes. I don't do much around here though. --SnorlaxMonster 09:03, 21 May 2012 (UTC)

Bulbapedia workpage[edit]

Hello, SM. I've noticed you've made a couple of large edits to my Bulbapedia workpage a while back. While, I appreciate the support you've given, I had to scale them back a bit. Of note:

  • You've placed way too many citations on the introductory sentence. Seriously, there were a whopping fourteen citations placed at the end of that first sentence. While citations do help give weight of notability to article, I think that you became overzealous added any sort of source that made only a mere passing mention of Bulbapedia. (e.g. "According to Bulbapedia, blah blah blah...") Those are not acceptable enough for inclusion and I had to bring it down to a mere lone citation that I also think should not be included anyway.
  • The SOVA info that you added was not relevant to the workpage's subject. That event means nothing to Wikipedia on this workpage, especially since this was a Bulbagarden-related cause; Bulbapedia had no real involvement save for an article that documented the fan protest. This workpage is all about Bulbapedia, not its parent site. If this was a workpage for all of Bulbagarden, this information may have been more acceptable, but it simply isn't the case here.

If you need to ask any further questions about how to improve this article, please go the workpage's talk page. WPA 05:40, 2 May 2013 (UTC)

Okay, I agree that putting that many citations at the start of the article was overboard. However, I was following the style of articles such as Vsauce and Crash Course (YouTube) which overload sources at the end of the first paragraph or sentence to establish notability. Many of them were short mentions, but most at least mentioned that Bulbapedia was a useful source for Pokémon information. In regards to the ones you removed, three of them mention Bulbapedia noting that you would need to walk 1000 miles to unlock all the routes on the Pokéwalker ([1] [2] [3]), which I would think would count as significant coverage and deserve a mention on the article. I agree with your point about SOVA as well; there was a reliable source mentioning it, and I figured it could work in the article, but being about Bulbapedia not Bulbagarden would make it not relevant. --SnorlaxMonster 12:35, 2 May 2013 (UTC)

Backronym[edit]

Hello, Snorlax Monster. You recently edited Backronym, removing a paragraph from its lead section. Per Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Lead section, the lead section should provide a concise overview of the topic and summarize the article's content. I did not think the shortened lead section did that, so I reverted your edits. (Also, per Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Images, "It is very common to use an appropriate representative image for the lead of an article," but it is not obvious whether this article's lead section needs one.) If you feel that it would be better to include no examples in the lead section, you may wish to rewrite the lead by summarizing the phenomenon and the kinds of examples included in the body. It seems to me that including an example in the lead is an easier an more informative way to do this, but of course opinions do vary. Thanks, and happy editing, Cnilep (talk) 02:13, 22 July 2013 (UTC)

August 2013[edit]

Hello, I'm BracketBot. I have automatically detected that your edit to Pokémon may have broken the syntax by modifying 2 "[]"s and 1 "<>"s. If you have, don't worry, just edit the page again to fix it. If I misunderstood what happened, or if you have any questions, you can leave a message on my operator's talk page.

List of unpaired brackets remaining on the page:

Thanks[edit]

Thanks for fixing the order error I made on the Pokemon article. Sorry I didn't catch it myself. Jjcooper0811 (talk) 10:49, 8 October 2013 (UTC)

Skiddo[edit]

Just stop. There is no way that you are going to be able to romanize メェークル. Stop using the formatting you get when you paste that name into Google Translate. Me~e is not correct. Neither is Mexe. Both are just ways that you can type the combination. All there is here is a long E sound stretched across too many katakana. It is to be romanized as and not me~ē or mexē. These are the rules set out at WP:MOS-JA.—Ryulong (琉竜) 07:49, 16 October 2013 (UTC)

I carefully read through WP:MOS-JA, and you are incorrect; it makes no statement that could be applied to how to romanize メェ. As for how it should be romanized, you are correct that Google Translate romanizes メェ as me~e, but as you have yet to provide any counter-example where メェ is romanized as me or , メェ must be romanized as one of the only two ways I can find used online: me~e or mexe (and I believe you are aware of my preference of those two). --SnorlaxMonster 08:19, 16 October 2013 (UTC)
Those aren't romanization schemes. Those are methods of typing those characters on a computer.—Ryulong (琉竜) 09:03, 16 October 2013 (UTC)
me~e is a romanization scheme, just as having the ' in kin'yōbi as the romanization still makes it a valid romanization of きんようび. mexeru is just that, as x(vowel) is used to represent small letters; however, this is not the case with ~. Regardless, both Nihon-shiki and Kunrei-shiki use romanizations that are optimized for typing rather than pronunciation, and they are both clearly romanization schemes; of course, Wikipedia uses Hepburn, but your implication that romanization schemes ignore computer inputs was incorrect. --SnorlaxMonster 09:16, 16 October 2013 (UTC)

Your edit on MissingNo.[edit]

I noticed you called Bulbapedia an unreliable source, and reverted my edit. Technically, they are quite reliable, and the people there have taken apart the Pokemon games, and looked at them byte by byte. I would like for you to prove that it is unreliable, or I will have to re-add Yellow. Thanks, Scientific Alan 2(Click here to talk)(What have I done?) 14:09, 31 October 2013 (UTC)

Bulbapedia is a wiki, and as such, is not a reliable source. It is generally accurate, but that does not make it reliable. I've done a lot of editing over at Bulbapedia and am aware that most of the information on MissingNo. is correct, but it is not appropriate to use Bulbapedia as a source on Wikipedia (in the same way it would not be appropriate to use Wikipedia as a source on Bulbapedia). I actually know of a case where someone tried to spread false information by adding it to Bulbapedia, adding it to Wikipedia citing that, then defending its presence on Bulbapedia with the Wikipedia page (which was an invalid argument... and this is irrelevant to the topic at hand anyway). --SnorlaxMonster 16:48, 1 November 2013 (UTC)

Thank you, kind Sir Snorlax Monster[edit]

OER inquiry[edit]

Hi Snorlax Monster, I'm sending you this message because you're one of about 300 users who have recently edited an article in the umbrella category of open educational resources (OER) (or open education). In evaluating several projects we've been working on (e.g. the WIKISOO course and WikiProject Open), my colleague Pete Forsyth and I have wondered who chooses to edit OER-related articles and why. Regardless of whether you've taken the WIKISOO course yourself - and/or never even heard the term OER before - we'd be extremely grateful for your participation in this brief, anonymous survey before 27 April. No personal data is being collected. If you have any ideas or questions, please get in touch. My talk page awaits. Thanks for your support! - Sara FB (talk) 20:49, 23 April 2014 (UTC)
