Welcome to Bulbapedia, Jediknightdtv!

Here are a few links to help you get started:

The Manual of Style, or MoS, outlines the format of all pages on Bulbapedia.

Our friendly team of staff are here to help! Talk to them if you have any questions or problems with Bulbapedia.


Hey, the page for Dent is protected and I just thought we should move it to Cilan. It was released on Cartoon Network days ago. --Chiramii 15:51, 30 January 2011 (UTC)

On talk pages, please sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~), or by using the "Your signature with a timestamp" (button_sig.png) button at the top of the edit window.

On Bulbapedia, the ability to edit personal userpages is a privilege. Per our userpage policy, this must be earned by first making constructive edits to the mainspace. Once you can, remember to keep userspace edits (edits to User:Jediknightdtv) to a minimum.

For a complete list of policies and editing advice, please see the Welcome Portal.
 Thank you, and have a good time editing here!

Project Anime

though I'm not very active in the Anime, I would have to say that the incomplete synopsizes are an important thing you could help write. The list is here. Now, just to make sure we avoid problems that have happened in the past, using synopsizes from other sites is against the rules here. They need to be written anew. This is something that I think you might be able to do, so have a good time editing here and good luck. ;] MaverickNate 22:22, 24 July 2010 (UTC)


Yeah, we don allow those things in our mainspace. Right now the page is at User:Jediknightdtv/Sandbox. Next please be sure to make your user pages at "UserJediknightdtv/Title here". Thanks! --CoolPikachu! 20:04, 7 September 2010 (UTC)

Userspace limits

Hi. I noticed you have been editing the User: namespace a lot recently. Please don't do it any more, though. Bulbapedia's Userspace policy restricts the amount you can edit your userpage: no more than three edits per day. This policy was instated to prevent strain on our server, and also to promote people helping out in the mainspace. Bulbapedia is an encyclopedia, after all, so help us out by contributing to some articles before coming back to your personal userpage. The more often you edit in the mainspace, the more you will be allowed to edit your userpage. Thanks! --Psyライダー 14:10, 8 September 2010 (UTC)

As I mentioned to you before, you can edit a whole page all at once by clicking on the "Edit this page" tab at the very top of the page. That way you can edit multiple sections at the same time, rather than having to do one section at a time. PhantomJunkie 14:16, 8 September 2010 (UTC)

The HP bar code actually from Umeko, not from Jello. I would recommend you at least give her credit unless you're going to change significantly more than the colors and the sprite. That was my bad. PhantomJunkie 05:27, 10 September 2010 (UTC)


Hey Jedi, I saw your question on Phantom's talk page, is this sort of what you're after? たかはり 08:12, 30 September 2010 (UTC)

I'm glad that's what you wanted. Happy to help :D たかはり 07:11, 1 October 2010 (UTC)
I saw your comment on takharii's talk page, I'm not sure what you're looking for but did you try putting {{User:Jediknightdtv/HPBar}} in your infobox? It should resize automatically to fit inside. Jellotalk 19:50, 7 October 2010 (UTC)
Yeah that was the first thing I tried, Jello, and it messed up the formatting. Then I tried dumping the raw code in there, but that didn't work either. I am really frustrated by the stupid thing right now, and I don't know what to do. Any help you can offer would be appreciated. Thank you so much in advance.--JediKnightDTV 19:56, 7 October 2010 (UTC)
I think I fixed it. You probably deleted a |} or something, that tends to screw things up. It should work alright now :3 たかはり 04:56, 9 October 2010 (UTC)
Eh...probably. I wouldn't put it past me. I can be pretty airheaded sometimes when it comes to wiki-code, but I am learning and getting better. I know a heck of a lot more now than when I started, which was absolutely nothing. It made me feel absolutely ancient today, when I had a newbie thank me for posting the Welcome Box on his talkpage, and then ask me how to post on a talkpage. Thanks again, Takharii. --JediKnightDTV 05:04, 9 October 2010 (UTC)


Hey, could you assist me into making my user page look better? You posted a comment on my talk page and it really helped me understand what is going on. I don't know all of the wiki codes and you seem very nice so if it is possible, could you post something on my talk page? Thanks.--Sceptile Maniac 21:02, 15 October 2010 (UTC)

I got read through the links and I started programming my user page. Check it out if you want to.--Sceptile Maniac 21:04, 15 October 2010 (UTC)

Other Users

Hey, Jedi, is it okay if my brother creates an account on the same computer as me, but on a different account?--Sceptile Maniac 13:10, 16 October 2010 (UTC)

I'm gonna answer Jedi, try not to, but inform a Senior Admin or a Bureaucrat first if he must.--444Zekrom 16:08, 16 October 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, I told him on his talk page to basically ask an admin, and directed him to Kogoro, as she is online right now. --JediKnightDTV 16:12, 16 October 2010 (UTC)

Hey, I just joined. I'm Sceptile Maniac's brother. Kogoro told him that it was okay.--Umbreon Rox 16:57, 16 October 2010 (UTC)

User Page Editing...

Hey, I am Kinda new (well actually very new) and i was wondering what does it mean by the mainspace? when the title is like this -Pikachu (pokemon) is it the pikachu, the (pokemon) or something else entirely? thanks in advance. Kaychun LPM 18:20, 25 October 2010 (UTC)

Talk Page

I've been here four years. I know what is and isn't allowed. You are allowed to remove comments that should go on the forums such as the one I removed. --HoennMaster 19:23, 25 October 2010 (UTC)

My bad. Shoulda been able to tell because of the userpage. And you don't have to be so mean, especially to new users. --JediKnightDTV 19:26, 25 October 2010 (UTC)
I'm not being mean at all, I'm telling it like it is. Besides, new users are suppose to read the rules. It's not my fault if they don't. --HoennMaster 19:38, 25 October 2010 (UTC)
Okay, but all I am saying is, you could be a little bit nicer in how you go about it, and how you say stuff, is all. After all, see the number one rule about the wiki. --JediKnightDTV 19:44, 25 October 2010 (UTC)

A Little More Advice Please?

How can I tell when I am able to make a Userspace? Loghomewill 01:21, 27 October 2010 (UTC)

User Pages

Hi there! I am Will, and I am have been editing wikias for quite a while now. Anyway I was wondering why I can't edit my own User Page??? And when can I edit it? Thanks for your time Will94 09:38, 28 October 2010 (UTC) Thanks heaps for the reply. Just one more question. I have noticed "HP Bars" at the top of some talk pages, what does that mean??? Will94 21:03, 28 October 2010 (UTC)

They're representations of how big the talk page is. When the HP hits zero, it probably means it's time to archive it.--Cold (talk) 21:07, 28 October 2010 (UTC)

My Userpage

Can I use your Userpage style for my Userpage? PS: I'll say you designed it. Loghomewill 20:11, 6 November 2010 (UTC) Never Mind. Loghomewill 23:17, 6 November 2010 (UTC)


Thanks for welcoming me. My brother is loghomewill. Do you know him? Bahalla 22:53, 8 November 2010 (UTC)


Yeah, you can try to help me. Thanks for being so nice. My sis is kind of confused, so she could use some tips also. Good luck! Loghomewill 00:02, 9 November 2010 (UTC) Your way. It's awesome. Loghomewill 00:16, 9 November 2010 (UTC)

Got it. Working on it right now. Will let you know when I am done. --JediKnightDTV 00:19, 9 November 2010 (UTC)
Thanks. Loghomewill 00:48, 9 November 2010 (UTC)


Hi Jedi, as humans there are hundreds of things people have in common. One thing i know everyone loves is stuff. Do you think shipping should include inanimate objects? Auragirl 22:27, 10 November 2010 (UTC)auragirl

    • I definitely think this would be better for the forum, but I don't now how to use it.- unsigned comment from Auragirl (talkcontribs)
You should have an account over there, the same as you have over here. Just experiment a little with it, and you will figure it out. Oh, and you tab over by using the colon on the keyboard (:), not the asterisk like you used. P.S. Don't forget to sign your comments on talkpages by using the "Your Signature with a Timestamp" button, or by typing 2 dashes, followed by four tildes like this: --~~~~. And you do not have to sign the one above, or sign again after your signature, as it is not necessary.--JediKnightDTV 02:11, 11 November 2010 (UTC)


Just thought I'd let you know, spamming a user's talk page, just to kill their talk page health and make them archive is not a good idea, and is a bit rude. Perhaps reading this might freshen up your memory on what talk pages are for. Thanks. Jellotalk 16:44, 11 November 2010 (UTC)

Userpage Creation

Thanks for the clarification :) StripedRK9 01:50, 18 November 2010 (UTC)

Talkpage Health

How can you see your talk page health? StripedRK9 21:57, 18 November 2010 (UTC)

It is a template that was created by the big cheese around here. If you want to borrow it, feel free. Just go to My Templates page, and it'll be there, under My HP Bar. Just do two things before you use it: change it significantly to suit your own tastes (favorite color, Pokémon, etc.) and make sure to give credit to TTEchidna, after all he came up with the coding for it. If you need help with the coding, feel free to drop me a line. It should be great practice with the wiki-coding for you. --JediKnightDTV 22:05, 18 November 2010 (UTC)

Could I useit too? DoTheWave 01:44, 19 November 2010 (UTC)

Go for it. Same conditions apply though (change it, and give credit to TTE). If you need help with the code, drop me a line. --JediKnightDTV 02:57, 19 November 2010 (UTC)

I know that a couple of other users have asked you about this, but do you mind if my userpage utilizes this template? I've checked it out, and I'll make sure that TTE gets credited (along with you, of course), and I've got at least ten different schemes to work with. Thanks much! chiefboz (my talk and contributions) 15:53, 4 December 2010 (UTC)

Tell you what, Chiefboz, how about a trade? Feel free to use it (you really don't need to credit me, but I would credit our former big cheese around here) and I would like to use your Pages Needing Attention Statistics one, if that is cool with you? TTYL --JediKnightDTV 18:57, 4 December 2010 (UTC)
You may absolutely use it! I'll also let you use the predict BW release date tag, if you want to - no need to ask me for that one. Thanks a lot! chiefboz (my talk and contributions) 23:05, 4 December 2010 (UTC)


Do you know how I could add a Mail sprite to the corner of my heading which lets a user e-mail me? DoTheWave 21:24, 19 November 2010 (UTC)

Hey sorry it took me so long to get back. I tried to play around with it on your template, the problem that I keep running into is, you need the square brackets in order to put the image on there, because it is an internal link. However, if it is an internal link, you can't make it do what you want it to do, which is email you when you click on it. I can suggest one of two things: 1) Ask someone who knows a lot more about wiki-coding than I do. Takharii and Phantomjunkie are pretty friendly and helpful if you ask them nicely, and they both know a lot more about wiki-coding than I do, and they both helped me out a lot. 2) They can always email you from clicking the "Email this user" link on the left hand side of the page under toolbox. I know, I know, it's just not the same but...--JediKnightDTV 02:04, 20 November 2010 (UTC)
Put the image in as [[File:Bag Air Mail Sprite.png|link=Special:Emailuser/DoTheWave]] Doing so will give Bag Air Mail Sprite.png Werdnae (talk) 02:21, 20 November 2010 (UTC)
Thanks alot :) DoTheWave 14:17, 20 November 2010 (UTC)
Thanks again, Werdnae. --JediKnightDTV 18:47, 20 November 2010 (UTC)


Thanks for explaining Userpages for me, how should I start editing? I've done a few edits, but most of them have been deleted. Thanks, in advance. Shadow Walker 20:32, 28 November 2010 (UTC)

The best advice I could give you as far as editing goes is lurk a little more, and try to see what makes a good edit. Then, when you feel comfortable, try looking at the list of wanted articles, or if you don't feel comfortable starting from scratch, you can try fixing some stub articles. Hope that helps. --JediKnightDTV 21:06, 28 November 2010 (UTC)
Thanks again, JediKnightDTV Shadow Walker 16:31, 29 November 2010 (UTC)

My "Work" Template

Hey JediKnight,

I know you like using the steel colors for templates, and you set the colors on my Work template to those by default. You probably saw me switch them back to default, but I got it set so you can use {{User:Chiefboz/Work|steel|steel}} (or something like that), and your love for those colors will be instantly revived. Just a piece of advice for you. Speaking of the template - where are you going to put it? I haven't seen it up on your userpage yet. I'd love to see other users (meaning people who aren't me) use my hard work! chiefboz (my talk and contributions) 04:57, 7 December 2010 (UTC)

I know I shouldn't really keep conversations going across two talk pages, but I just wanted to let you know I fixed your "problem" and adjusted the alignment and color settings. (And I thought that triggering the "You have new messages" alert would help you get back to this faster.) Check my talk page for full details. chiefboz (my talk and contributions) 02:39, 9 December 2010 (UTC)

Thank you for your friendly message ^^

You're really kind, ahaha. Honestly, the reason why I never delete those angry reminders from TTEchidna or whatever is to remind myself that this wiki means serious business. And I always strive to better organize my thoughts all the while balancing my grammar and memory of templates. At the same time, I also fear that I might make a mistake whenever I add stuff in my favorite Trivia section of any page, because, well, it's an opinion thing, of course, haha.

Honestly, thank you so much for making me realize some things. Haha, I'll be sure to ask as much as possible from now on. ^^

You know a thing or two, your help may be required at the bottom of my talk page Diamond Lanturn CodeName: 05308 00:33, 7 January 2011 (UTC)

I do not know a heck of a lot about wikicode, I did see that you talked to SnorlaxMonster and that he was trying to help you out. If he can't help you, I would say to try asking another admin. Not trying to be mean or blow you off, I am just not the right person to ask about this. I am flattered that you thought that I was though. Sorry that I couldn't be of more help. --JediKnightDTV 00:47, 7 January 2011 (UTC)
No worries SnorlaxMaster fixed it for Gliscorguy54 Diamond Lanturn CodeName: 05308 00:49, 7 January 2011 (UTC)

Navigation guide

Sure you can put my navigation guide on to your links page. I just try to help new users in every way that I can.--KayKay|Chat to me! 00:07, 12 January 2011 (UTC)


Hey! I really like your templates. May I use them? Thank you! :] --Han Ji-Wan 06:54, 17 January 2011 (UTC)


I'd like the navigation template. Do I need to ask for permission from the creator? Of course, I will credit you and the creator. :D p.s.... why do ya have 2 different usertalk pages?? D: --Gummy Spider 03:23, 18 January 2011 (UTC)
