    Default The Housekeeping Thread


    Banner by Morru





    Welcome to the housekeeping thread! Let's consider URPG, for a moment, as if it were a house. Now obviously URPG is constantly partying, so it would stand to reason that our house can get a bit messy. That's where this thread (and you) come in! We need your help to point out the areas of URPG that need cleaning up, or updating. In this thread, please report any of the following issues so that our wonderful mods know what to fix:



    • Typos, misspellings, or grammatical errors
    • Errors or inconsistencies (if it says anywhere that Sunkern can learn Sacred Fire, report that here)
    • Areas that need updating (i.e. Gym Leader List, Banned Members List, List of Referees, Ref Quiz, etc.)
    • Broken images or links (Self-explanatory)
    • Errors in a specific section (i.e. Refpedia, Story Ranks, etc.)
    • AIM/Skype/Discord Errors (i.e. Chat not working properly, people who aren't admins that should be, etc.; keep in mind that not all of these are fixable by a mod, and some may require a fix on your end)
    • Anything else that you feel needs correcting or updating as long as it pertains to the URPG Forums or Chats




    Please allow some time after posting your report for the item in question to be fixed. You may double-post (as long as it isn't excessive), but please avoid spamming the same error report until it gets fixed. Also, keep in mind that any errors or inconsistencies with the UltraDex should be reported in a different thread. Thanks for your help. Together we can vacuum, polish, scrub and sweep URPG till it shines!

    • I'm listed as Felly under the Hall of Fame under Retired Officials on Infohub. Everywhere else on the Infohub has me listed as Mistral, so I feel like that should be updated for consistency's sake.
    • Coincidentally, I'm also listed on the current staff list on the URPG Rules page on Infohub. None of the recent staff updates for Officials and Mods have been put there either.
    • It's also been brought to my attention that some of the banners I made for some URPG pages were broken because Photobucket happened. I went through Infohub to see which ones were used, and I've gotten those off of Photobucket and rehosted them onto Imgur. The only one that wasn't on Infohub was the Legend Log, which was used on the forums. I'm sure there's others on the forums that need to be rehosted as well, but I'm not digging through a bunch of forum threads to see which ones need to be rehosted. If you see any other broken images that were done by me, let me know (on Discord, preferably), and I'll get them. All the images I'm aware of are in the spoiler below.
    • Carrying off from the banners thing, those are all listed as "made by Felly," and they should probably be changed to "made by Mistral" instead.

    Spoiler:
    DPPt Contests - For the DPPt Move List.


    Legend Log - This one is on the forums.


    Payments - This one is under the URPG Rules.


    BW Contests - For the BW Move List. I know BW contests are no longer a thing, but the page is still on the Infohub, and I figure it'd be better to have a nice image there than the "lel Photobucket sucks now and we're breaking all y'all's images" image instead if y'all are gonna keep the page up there.

    Link in the first post of this thread is incorrect.

    "http://urpg.monbrey.com.au/info/?page=general-projectnukem"
    Should be:
    "http://urpg.monbrey.com.au/info/general/project-nukem/"
    "Because it's always been this way" should never be an excuse to maintain a broken system.

    The National Park subforum description here and on PXR:

    "Welcome to the URPG's National Park. This is the place to come if your a role-playing fanatic, because here at the Park, you RP your way towards catching more Pokemon!"

    "Your" should be "you're".

    This is going to be an obnoxiously big post but here's hoping it's helpful! Sorting it by forum category and then going through all the stickied info posts to find errors, broken links, data that doesn't match the infohub, other misc. problems, etc. This post is only for PWN, and I might make a similar post over on PXR since a lot of the errors are repeated there, but not all.

    I haven't listed or checked all sections of the forum, only those most relevant to the URPG as far as I can discern.

    Community Forums

    New and Announcements

    • In the Forum/Staff Changes thread, several of most recent changes have not been posted about, judging by other posts or comments made by staff in the Discord. Could stand to be updated. It notably doesn't include Mistral's resignation, which is detailed in a separate thread and post in the section, for example.
    • Unclear if this post about staff roles in the Community Rules thread is up-to-date, as it was last edited in April, and it seems there have been staff changes since then. May possibly need updating as a result?
    • The PWN Discord Server thread links only to the PWN server, and not the overall discord server used between forums, or the Invitationals server. It may be splitting up the userbase and reducing activity as a result. Perhaps consider consolidating or including all the relevant links in one place instead?
    • This post for staff applications expired June 30th.
    • This post also only links to the PWN server, but it's fairly buried. May also contribute to split or low activity.


    Feedback and Questions
    • The Name Change thread hasn't been updated or checked in two months.
    • Questions & FAQ mentions a list of moderators for quick reference, but doesn't link to that list in that specific answer. This may confuse those who don't think the second answer applies to their question, and overlook the links in it's answer.


    Welcomes
    • It may be helpful to have a mod post stickied here, with a template of information it would be nice for new members to post about in their welcome threads.


    General

    General Stickies
    • The URPG General Chat/Questions/Suggestions thread has a dead link to the old hub in it's opening post.
    • The Starter Request's opening post has several dead links to BMG in it. It also has a dead link to the old infohub in it. It also directly says that URPG is on the Bulbagarden forums when it no longer is. It also links to info in other threads instead of directly to the infohub, in the same place it links to BMG.
    • In the Mentor / Apprentice program thread, the top post hasn't been updated to reflect current mentor / apprentice pairs in quite some time. The attached official document also hasn't been updated recently either.
    • Pokemon URPG InfoHub/UltraDex Errors Thread states that "TM/HM/BM/MT/SM: Requires PokéMart purchase". This may need to be clarified, as some TMS can be bought or obtained using other shops or methods, such as the Berry Shop.
    • Active URPG Discord List has a broken link to BMG in it above the banner. It also links to info in other threads instead of directly to the infohub, in the same place it links to BMG.
    • Staff Applications: February 2018 + Additional Announcement thread has expired for the staff applications portion. It also announces that SwiftGallade46 is stepping down, but this change is not reflected in the Forum/Staff Changes thread over in the community Forums.
    • In the Getting Started and URPG Guide thread, all the links to the hub or guide itself are broken.


    Marketplace
    • The PokéMart lacks a template for buying things, unlike most other 'shops' in the URPG. Less of an error and more a lack of uniformity and convenience, but noted. This post thanks Gun6 for sprites that are not currently being used in the thread anywhere.
    • The Underground has a spelling / grammar error in the peter the rabbit Man info blurb, where it states that "but he always speak of a Daycare Center". The post also lacks the buying template many other 'shops' in the URPG use. Less of an error and more a lack of uniformity and convenience, but noted.
    • The Anniversary Gift Program has a dead link to a list over on Bulbagarden that may be important for those trying to remember their join dates.
    • The Donation Pool hasn't seemed to update this last quarter. Not an outright error so much as something to note.
    • The Auction Room hasn't updated in two months. Not an outright error so much as something to note.

    Trainer's Stats
    • The Project N.U.K.E.M. thread has a dead link to the infohub. It also has a dead Bulbagarden link in it.

    • The URPG Challenges thread has a dead infohub link. It also mentions prizes in another post, but these prizes have never been added and aren't listed in the current infohub either. this may be misleading for those wanting to complete challenges thinking they'll receive something at some point.
    • Trainer Stat Directory has a dead link to BMG in it, and also doesn't link to PXR. It also links to info in other threads instead of directly to the infohub, in the same place it links to BMG.
    • The Trainer Stats Rules & Example has a dead link to the old info hub. There is also a dead link to BMG. It also links to info in other threads instead of directly to the infohub, in the same place it links to BMG.

    I am ticking through these and crossing them out as I go. Ignoring the non-URPG boards at the moment, as the future of the others boards is currently uncertain. Thank you, Fenris, this was extremely helpful. I was looking to do this when I got my mod powers, but you made it that much quicker with this list!

    The page for Project NUKEM needs updating.
    It still lists the record for Meowstic as being swift's but that has been inaccurate since a while, since I took that record with 27 EMs. Also, swift's Meowstic had more than 15 EMs, I counted 22.
    The links towards my Eevee and Salamence should be updated, since I now host my stats on a third-party server.

    The Underground makes mention of "Frozen Rock" among evolutionary stones. This should be listed as "Frozen Stone" as per Pokemart.
