Welcome

Welcome to Bulbapedia, Amygravity!

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.
  • 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! C Is for Cookie 13:00, 28 February 2008 (UTC)

Link Templates

Please use link templates when linking to stuff such as Pokémon names, attacks, and the like. For example, {{p|Pichu}} instead of just [[Pichu]]. This is so you don't unintentionally link to a disambiguation page.

For a full crash course on link templates, look at the list of link templates. --Martonimos((Argh|Blargh)) 04:49, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

Another thing to keep in mind is that speculation is not allowed on Bulbapedia. It seems obvious to me that Plusle and Minun are related to the Pikachu family (although I wouldn't say that it's just Pichu), but unless some source confirms that, it doesn't belong in that point in the article. --Martonimos((Argh|Blargh)) 04:49, 6 September 2008 (UTC)
But, don't let this make you feel discouraged, feel free to keep editing, it is very helpful if you do. MoldyOrange 04:51, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

I'm a little too casual for this. I should have expected something like this. I also feel that the references in Plusle and Minun are meant to be as obvious as the singer references in Guilty Gear. --Amygravity 04:51, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

Pachirisu, too.
And yeah, I'm sorry. Like Moldy said, we're not trying to scare you away, and we certainly don't want to discourage you from trying to contribute. --Martonimos((Argh|Blargh)) 04:55, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

I'm just going back to simplifying information adding any lack of viewable details mentioned. I didn't expect what I assumed to be an original addition burn down within a minute.--Amygravity 04:58, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

looks like this is a hot topic. rightfully so, please use link templates. its part of the site base and moreover, its part of the policy. also, please preview your edits first, this will make sure you dont leave a red link or any other mistakes in your edits. -- MAGNEDETH 04:16, 5 December 2008 (UTC)

Is this why my Flygon additions were reverted? I don't think it really compares it directly to a pseudo legendary, but emphasizes the irritation of evolving one. Besides, the info sounds legit enough to be mentioned. --Amygravity 04:24, 5 December 2008 (UTC)

no, i hit the wrong button, ill take care of it. -- MAGNEDETH 04:26, 5 December 2008 (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. --- Kogoro | Talk to me - 22:25, 23 November 2008 (UTC)

I deleted them because the comments are all at least a few months old. --Amygravity 22:32, 23 November 2008 (UTC)

If you want to get rid of old discussions you can always archive your page--RexRacer -talk 22:36, 23 November 2008 (UTC)
Do not delete talk page comments--RexRacer -talk 22:37, 23 November 2008 (UTC)
Look, if you really want to get rid of all of this, I can help you archive this page.--RexRacer -talk 22:45, 23 November 2008 (UTC)
Someone also deleted some of my own ADDITIONS that I, as the user, had full rights to make. I'll deal with this stuff later, I suppose. --Amygravity 17:38, 28 November 2008 (UTC)
You mean, like, additions to the mainspace?--RexRacer -talk 17:40, 28 November 2008 (UTC)
