Welcome to Bulbapedia, WaterTypo!

By creating your account you are now able to edit pages, join discussions, and expand the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia. Before you jump in, here are some ground rules:

  • Be nice to everyone. It's in the code of conduct.
  • Make good edits. Preview them before you save to make sure they're perfect the first time around.
  • Use wikicode and link templates when adding content to a page.
  • Use proper grammar and spelling, and read the manual of style.
  • You can't create a userpage until you've added to the encyclopedia. It's a privilege. See the userspace policy.
  • Use talk pages to resolve editing disputes. Don't "edit war," or constantly re-edit/undo the same thing on a page.
  • If you have a question about something, be proactive. Ask for help. The staff won't bite.
  • Sign all talk page posts with four tildes (~~~~). This will turn into your name and the time you wrote the comment.
  • For more handy links, see the welcome portal.
Thank you, and have a good time editing here!

Hey, I was looking at your contributions and I noticed you use the word "you" a lot. It is generally discouraged to use the word "you" on a page. Try a less direct approach, like possibly use "the player" as a substitute for "you". :) Thanks! Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 23:09, 23 December 2010 (UTC)

The Preview Button

Instead of editing a page several times in a row, try using the preview button to make sure your edit looks the way you want it to. It's right next to the Save Changes button... Please try it out, so as not to clog up the Recent Changes. Thanks! -- Jellotalk 20:50, 24 December 2010 (UTC)

User Page

I made so many edits and three new pages, why wont the this computer let me do anything with my user page!!?? I didn't do anything wrong, did I? How many edits and new pages am I supposed to make? ( That last question was not rechorical.) - unsigned comment from WaterTypo (talkcontribs)

When you make enough edits (don't ask how many, that's a secret) and have been here a certain time, the software will automatically auto confirm you and you will be allowed to edit your user page. Don't forget that this is an encyclopedia and not a social networking site, your main focus should be about editing this wiki. Jellotalk 21:56, 24 December 2010 (UTC)
Read this page. Also this one. Pokémon has a capital P and an accent over the E. You can get the first four letters from the character palette below the editing pane (see, that nice green thing there?). —darklordtrom 21:58, 24 December 2010 (UTC)

I didn't know. How do you archive a page?


Don't create useless and poorly created pages like "Acorn Pokemon". Species names apply to more than one Pokémon so this doesn't really work. Jellotalk 22:12, 24 December 2010 (UTC)

Talk Page Comments

Removing talk page comments, including the initial welcome template, is prohibited per Bulbapedia's talk page policy. Please do not remove any comments in the future. If you wish to clean old comments away, you should archive your talk page instead. Thank you! --Ataro 06:51, 25 December 2010 (UTC)
