This article is an official policy on Bulbapedia.

Its contents are strongly binding and can be considered law on Bulbapedia.

Bulbapedia has recently developed a userspace policy that makes clear how much and what type of content is allowed in userspace pages. For the case of simplicity, the "rules" are formatted in lists.

Warnings

Warnings will be issued to users who edit their userspace excessively. While the definition of "excessive" is up to the person who sees this, a guideline would be seeing multiple edits to the same userpage within a very short timeframe. If a user has done this, they will be given their first warning, which instructs them to not edit the userspace so much and to use the preview button.

Blatant disregard for the first warning leads to a second, then to a third, and if the user continues despite the repeated warnings, loss of the ability to edit userpages. Rather than do this, Bulbapedia has a social forum, as well as blogs, for the details of its users everyday lives, found in the Bulbawiki forum link on the sidebar.

Content

This is fairly standard. Obviously, no pornographic material is allowed in any form, as this is a website often frequented by children. Additionally, none of the following are tolerated on subpages in any way, shape, or form.

  • Games (Such as "find the picture with the subheader under it")
  • Missions (Such as "Go through the 'maze' of subpages to reach the end and find the Shiny Psyduck!")
  • Riddles (Self-explanatory)
  • Fan fiction (the Bulbagarden Library will return soon)
  • Friend pages (the Bulbagarden forums have their own friend lists)
  • FAQ pages (Self-explanatory)
  • Anything else deemed inappropriate by the Editorial board will be deleted as well. If you feel your material was taken down unreasonably or in error, contact whoever did it for their reasoning. Contact an administrator if you want to know if something not specified here is allowed or not.

Other users' pages

Unless prior permission is given, users are typically not allowed to edit one another's pages. Instances in which this is permitted include, but are not limited to, broken links that appear on the wanted pages, duplicate images on the Archives, uncategorizing a userpage categorized in a category it should clearly not be in, reverting vandalism, etc. Spelling mistakes, however, and other minor things like this that do not affect the overall running of Bulbapedia are to be left untouched. If a change you wish to make to another user's page does not fall under one of the above categories, ask an administrator or that user for permission. Please also note this permission in the edit summary.
