Asking for help to fix the many misspellings here would be nice. Jellochuu¾ 20:02, 6 Mar 2005 (UTC) Should we add this Spanish-language Wiki? --Greengiant 07:55, 13 December 2007 (UTC)

I highly doubt that. Encyclopaediae Pokémonis uses the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike license throughout all languages. The Spanish-language wiki in question uses the GNU Free Documentation license, an incompatible license with Encyclopaediae Pokémonis. --Shiningpikablu252 23:11, 13 December 2007 (UTC)

When will userpage editability return?

So the message says that the results of the testing would be conclusive in a week. It's been over a month and no results! What's taking so long? Zurqoxn 21:53, 28 April 2008 (UTC)

They said that the testing was over, and now they're figurin' out the limits of the amount of userspace edits. PL12 21:57, 28 April 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, I'd been wondering about that, too. I mean, I only edit my Userpage because I'm bored and want to try out my editing skills. I REALLY hope that the editing functionality comes back soon. User:Thunderboom 20:49, 13 May 2008 (UTC)
Bulbapedia:Sandbox can be used to experiment with the mediawiki coding. --FabuVinny |Talk Page| 21:11, 13 May 2008 (UTC)
I wouldn't mind the ability to give myself a basic editor page. It seems to be slightly unfair perhaps that some users have such pages and newer users can't; but then, I think it might be worse if you have a page that you can't change. I just hope that this is addressed soon - it has now been two months since the announcement. An update of any kind would be nice. LostDrewid 11:18, 28 May 2008 (UTC)
Another month has passed... =( Kilik 14:45, 29 June 2008 (UTC)

Don't expect anything until 2009 MathijsP 15:25, 29 June 2008 (UTC) Does the policy of three edits apply: a) per day, week, month, etc.? b) to talk pages? Lord of Origami 14:58, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

I believe the limit is three userspace edits per day, excluding talk pages. Cipher 15:10, 10 October 2008 (UTC)



My name is Simon Koldyk and I'm from a company called ScribbleWiki, we do wiki hosting for corporations and community wikis. We would like to offer our services of hosting Bulbapedia. The advertising would stay in some form (not intrusive) and a little "hosted by ScribbleWiki" at the bottom would go up; but, any extra costs would be covered by our company.

We have no interest in owning/managing anything, the owner of the site would still be Archaic, and could choose to move anywhere else at any time. The content would still be under by-nc-sa, the only thing would change is we would handle the hosting architecture and assist with upgrading / development.

I'll be talking to Archaic personally; but, wanted to first post this to the community to see initial reactions to this sort of arrangement. --Simon Koldyk 16:10, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

I think that means "No". ShinyRayquaza 10:42, 16 October 2008 (UTC)

Red links

Why is there a ? after all the red links now? LatiasGemstonr

It's in your preferences, but I don't know where. Change it if you don't like it! MoldyOrange 19:03, 16 June 2008 (UTC)
