Welcome to [[Bulbapedia]], Froggy25!
 
 
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 [[Help:Editing|this page]].
 
*The {{bp|manual of style}} is very important. Make sure to read it. It outlines all official policies of Bulbapedia.
 
*Keep an eye on the {{bp|Messages from the Editor}} on the main page, to stay informed on current events on Bulbapedia.
 
*The word [[Pokémon]] is spelled with a capital '''P''' and an accented '''é'''. The é can be accessed by holding Alt and typing either '''130''' or '''0233''' on a Windows computer, and by using Option + e, then e again on a Mac. Otherwise, you can easily 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 capital '''B'''. 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 or other media. Bulbapedia is an encyclopedia, not a walkthrough.
 
*On {{bp|talk page}}s, please {{bp|Signature policy|sign your comments}} with four tildes (<nowiki>~~~~</nowiki>).
 
*The use of {{cat|link templates}} is official policy. For an explanation on their use, see the page on {{bp|shortlinks}}.
 
*If you happen to spot a vandal in the [[Special:Recentchanges|recent changes]] that has not been dealt with, please see {{bp|dealing with vandalism|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 [[Special:Wantedpages|this page]]. A list of short articles that may require more information can be found {{cat|stubs|here}}, while a list of articles that need improvement can be found {{cat|articles needing improvement|here}}.
 
*For a future capture, release, trade, or evolution of a Pokémon belonging to a main character of the {{pkmn|anime}}, please do not create or move the page to reflect your suspicions, even if they are shared by many others. Policy here is to wait until the episode in which the event happens takes place is aired, unless there is substantial evidence for the suspicion (such as [[Brock's Happiny]] being held in his arms).
 
*Image uploading is done on [[Bulbagarden Archives]], a separate wiki accessible through the toolbox in the sidebar. This is done so that both Bulbapedia and [[Bulbanews]] have access to the images uploaded. To activate your account at the Archives and Bulbanews, please login there using the same username and password you use here on Bulbapedia.
 
*If you want to make a page about a character you made up, please create it at User:Froggy25/(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.
 
*Having said this, please make sure that you do contribute adequately to the main namespace. Bulbapedia is not MySpace or Facebook.
 
*A list of the admins that you can contact in case of a problem can be found [[Special:Listusers/sysop|here]].
 
 
Thank you, and have a good time editing here! --''[[User:Moldy orange|<sup style="color:#4B5320;">'''Moldy'''</sup>]][[User talk:Moldy orange|<sub style="color:#ED9121;">'''Orange'''</sub>]]'' 16:53, 23 July 2008 (UTC)
