Welcome

Welcome to Bulbapedia, Chocolate!

As a new user, you may wish to learn a few things that will be useful in your editing:

  • For a basic overview of wiki code, see this page.
  • The manual of style is very important. Make sure to read it. It outlines all official policies of Bulbapedia.
  • The word Pokémon is spelled with a capital P and an accented é. The P, of course, is accessed easily by holding Shift and pressing the P key, while the é can be accessed using Alt + 130 or Alt + 0233 on a Windows computer, and Option + e, then e again on a Mac. Otherwise, you can click it in the character palette below the editbox.
  • The word Poké Ball is spelled as two words. The "Poké" part is identical to the four beginning letters in "Pokémon"; "Ball" is spelled with a captial B (which is, again, accessed by holding Shift and pressing the B key). The spelling "Pokéball" arises frequently, but is incorrect.
  • The word "you" and all forms of it should not be used on encyclopedic pages unless it is a quote from Pokémon media. Bulbapedia is an encyclopedia, not a walkthrough.
  • On talk pages, please sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).
  • The use of link templates is official policy. For an explanation on their use, see the page on shortlinks.
  • If you happen to spot a vandal in the recent changes that has not been dealt with, please see this page for how to deal with it.
  • A list of pages that are linked to, but have not been created, can be found at this page. A list of short articles that may require more information can be found here, while a list of articles that need improvement can be found here.
  • If you want to make a page about a character you made up, please create it at User:Chocolate/Archive 2/(name), not merely (name). Bulbapedia's main namespace is reserved for actual, official Pokémon, items, characters, and locations. Also, please try to make sure that subpages are not categorized by templates used within.
  • A list of the admins that you can contact in case of a problem, can be found here.

Thank you, and have a good time editing here!486PokeManiac102492 01:40, 17 March 2008 (UTC)

Tried

Have you tried emailing yourself your password? C Is for Cookie

I can't. It was stupid of me to not enter an e-mail address when I registered, but I can't change what happened. Baby G 21:01, 17 March 2008 (UTC)

Help

For absolutely NO reason, I'm not allowed to edit my user page when I try to. WTF is going on? Baby G 23:21, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

Read the Message from the Editor on the main pagePokeManiac102 23:23, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
And click the Zhen Lin link there, after that, you will know everythingPokeManiac102 23:24, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
When will I be able to edit it again? Baby G 20:23, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

You forgot your password for babyg

Log out, Log Bak In, Type in babyg, and press recover lost password. Follow directions from there--KukiTalk 22:02, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

I can't. I didn't have an e-mail address registered on my old account. Baby G 01:50, 9 August 2008 (UTC)
How is that possible? You can't even make edits on Bulbapedia until you receive and respond to the confirmation e-mail. --Martonimos((Argh|Blargh)) 22:22, 10 August 2008 (UTC)
Well, I don't remember my e-mail address from my old account. That's what I meant to say. Baby G 22:30, 10 August 2008 (UTC)
Doesnt it say it in preferences? you lost me...DCM 02:53, 11 August 2008 (UTC)
Doesn't do much good if you can't log in to see the preferences, though. --Martonimos((Argh|Blargh)) 03:58, 11 August 2008 (UTC)
Cant an admin check it?DCM 12:55, 11 August 2008 (UTC)
Even if an admin can find it out for me, I don't remember my password for my e-mail either. My password on Bulbapedia is the same as my e-mail password, and I don't remember my e-mail password. But I've got a new e-mail address now. Baby G 13:25, 15 August 2008 (UTC)

Can someone change my user name?

My current user name is getting boring, so I'd like a new one, if it's possible on this site (I know it is on Wikipedia but I'm not sure about here). If it is possible, I'd like my user name to be changed to "Pokémon1994". Baby G 00:16, 16 August 2008 (UTC)

Please keep in mind that we discourage frequent username changing, especially ones that are unmotivated. (Tavisource was renamed since the original username had a typo; Optimatum was renamed to avoid a connection with a vandal; DCM's original username was unwieldy.) - 振霖T 17:14, 19 August 2008 (UTC)
So it can't be changed? Baby G 17:16, 19 August 2008 (UTC)
Give us a good reason other than*because I felt like it*Your Friendly Neighborhood Cookie Monster
Because I hate my current user name. Baby G 18:55, 19 August 2008 (UTC)
Thats not really that bad....my last user name was HUGE!!!!!Your Friendly Neighborhood Cookie Monster
Well, my current user name has nothing to do with the articles I contribute to, while a user name like "Pokémon1994" does involve my contributions. Baby G 18:59, 19 August 2008 (UTC)
Why is it important that your name matches your contributions?DCM means nothing to any of my contributions....Your Friendly Neighborhood Cookie Monster
I'm just kinda picky with certain things. Baby G 19:08, 19 August 2008 (UTC)
Hmmmm, that might not be good enough.Are you sick of your name because when people see the word Baby they think of you as immature?Your Friendly Neighborhood Cookie Monster
No, I just think my name is too random. It has nothing to do with me in real life or on Bulbapedia. Baby G 19:24, 19 August 2008 (UTC)

Mine was random, but also easy to remember--KukiTalk 19:26, 19 August 2008 (UTC)

Well, I don't like having random names. Baby G 19:28, 19 August 2008 (UTC)
Although my name can b traced bak to Kingler's anime cry--KukiTalk 19:30, 19 August 2008 (UTC)
Well, my name can't really be traced to anything. Baby G 19:30, 19 August 2008 (UTC)
Well then thats too bad for you.Your not gonna change it because you no longer like it.Goo dayYour Friendly Neighborhood Cookie Monster
Can you please edit your comment so it sounds more civil? Saying "good day" makes it seem like you're yelling at me. Baby G 19:33, 19 August 2008 (UTC)
He's Darth Cookie Monster For Crying Out Loud!--KukiTalk 19:35, 19 August 2008 (UTC)
Now you're yelling too? How uncivil can you get? Baby G 19:36, 19 August 2008 (UTC)
You have no legitamat reason.Good Day Your Friendly Neighborhood Cookie Monster
I have several reasons that I have provided. Baby G 19:39, 19 August 2008 (UTC)
Because you hate your current user name.Congrats.Thats nothing.You just dont like this onw anymore.Thats not legitamate, thats just stupidity.Good day to you, sirYour Friendly Neighborhood Cookie Monster
