Welcome

Welcome to Bulbapedia, Alexa9966!

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.
  • Read over the style primer before making your edits. It is a basic outline of Bulbapedia style. For a more in-depth set of rules, see the manual of style.
  • Keep an eye on the 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 talk pages, please sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).
  • The use of link templates is official policy.
  • 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.
  • For a future capture, release, trade, or evolution of a Pokémon belonging to a main character of the 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:Alexa9966/(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.
  • All users are allowed to edit the userspace 3 times a day. If you edit more than 3 times, you may be subjected to a warning. If you ignore the warning, you will be given three chances to comply. If you do not comply, your ability to modify the userspace will be revoked for a period of time.
  • Unless prior permission is given, no user is permitted to edit another user's page. Furthermore, edits to other users' pages are permitted only if there are problems that spread to other parts of Bulbapedia, such as broken links that appear on the wanted pages, switching out duplicate images that appear on the Archives, etc.
  • Fan fictions, missions, riddles, games, and anything else deemed not suitable for the wiki will not be allowed. If you would like to add something, but do not know if it is acceptable, ask an administrator.
  • A list of administrators that you can contact in case of a problem can be found here.

Thank you, and have a good time editing here! --Tavisource 21:14, 8 October 2008 (UTC)

Top tip

Use the preview button when editing pages to make sure you've written everything you want to write, instead of making 5 edits of one page. :) Glinn Mgraw 02:51, 16 November 2008 (UTC)

No, no, no, and no

Ash's Pikachu's gender IS NOT confirmed. Do not add it into articles. Thank you. The Dark Fiddler - Nos hablamos? 21:44, 30 December 2008 (UTC)

Listen

If you have a problem with homosexual ships than you shouldn't involve yourself in editing Shipping pages. You're putting down false information based on your own bias. PalletShipping is way more popular than GymShipping. Go look on FanFiction.net and I bet you will find much more fan fiction on PalletShipping rather than GymShipping (in fact I don't recall ever seeing one). Don't do it again. --ケンジガール 21:47, 31 December 2008 (UTC)

I'm sorry, did I not make myself clear? Remove PalletShipping one more time, and I'm blocking you. --ケンジガール 22:51, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

Pokémon

Pokémon is not spelled "pokemon", it's Pokémon. Remember this, please. Chocolate (Chat with Me) 20:48, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

Hi

I noticed you have been editing the User: namespace a lot today. You may not be aware of this, but Bulbapedia has a Userspace policy that asks users to only edit their pages four times a day, at most. Instead of making multiple edits, why not use the Preview button (Alt + Shift + P) located right next to the edit button to look at your page and see how it is coming? That way, your page can look great while staying within the required amount of edits. Just wait until tomorrow, ok? Thanks! --The Dark Fiddler - Nos hablamos? 22:03, 11 January 2009 (UTC)

Before I revert you again...

Which I will...

Can you tell me why you are replacing AppealShipping with GymShipping?--freezingCOLD (page, talk) 21:58, 15 January 2009 (UTC)

Preview Button

Use it. Please. It makes it easier to correct, without making several edits with minor edits in between them all. Thank you. --PsychicRider 23:29, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

Talk Page Comments

Please don't erase talk page comments for no reason. Trust me, you do NOT want to end up like Big Johnno, who got into an edit war with a sysop over comments the former had erased and was trying to keep erased. That user ended up blocked and subsequently had every erased comment restored. --PsychicRider 23:42, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

Blanking Pages

Please do not blank pages for no reason. Thank you. --Theryguy512 00:04, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

Rather yet, do not blank pages for reasons you are certainly not in a position to judge upon. Luna Tiger * the Arc Toraph 01:25, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

User space edits

Please try not to make too many edits to your userpage at one time. It stresses the server. --ケンジガール 01:59, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

Hold on!

If you did not read your last warning, then please read it now. You have edited the User: namespace too much for now. Please do not edit your page any more for now. Thank you. ----freezingCOLD (page, talk) 16:01, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

Stop.

Do not edit the User: namespace any more. In the past, we were not allowed to edit our pages at all because of users over-editing their pages. If you edit your page any more without making some edits to the mainspace, then the privilege for you to edit it the userspace will be removed. ----freezingCOLD (page, talk) 20:43, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

Multiple Accounts

it is against the rules to have more than one account. i have blocked the othes, and left this one, as it appears to be your most active account. please do not create any more accounts with out justifiable reason. -- MAGNEDETH 23:51, 30 March 2009 (UTC)

S

Any page that has "Shipping" in it must have the S capitalized. MaidShipping, not Maidshipping.--freezingCOLD (page, talk) 19:58, 9 April 2009 (UTC)

Yo

How many times do I have to tell you to stop touching the popular ship list? Don't touch it anymore. If you have a problem with it, discuss on the talk page. --ケンジガール 20:22, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

Preview button

Remember to use it, please. It allows for multiple edits, but one save, and therefore won't be as hard on the server. Thank you. --αワニノコ 14:46, 4 July 2009 (UTC)

Iron Will

When a page gets deleted... twice... Don't keep creating it. It's not notable. --electAbuzzzz 00:55, 3 September 2009 (UTC)

Look

Your failure to listen to our warnings has resulted in your userspace privileges being taken away. Your privileges may be returned in time. Please, next time listen to us. -- MAGNEDETH 01:12, 3 September 2009 (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 and make sure you contribute to our mainspace more than your userspace. This policy was instated to prevent promote people helping out in the mainspace, and also to control strain on our server. 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! --Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 21:59, 1 January 2012 (UTC)

Hold on!

If you did not read your last warning, then please read it now. You have edited the User: namespace too much. In the past, no one was allowed to edit their userpages because some users were over-editing their own userpages. Your personal editing privileges can be taken away, so please do not edit your page any more for now. Instead, how about helping contribute to some of Bulbapedia's many articles? Thank you. --It's Funktastic~!話してください 23:02, 8 August 2013 (UTC)
