Welcome

Welcome to Bulbapedia, Arutoa!

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!PokeManiac102 21:26, 24 February 2008 (UTC)

Dates of comments

Just realize that you need to read the dates on talk page comments if you want to make a proper response...those comments you responded to are back from the beginning of the month when Land Forme wasn't 100% confirmed. Now it is, and we've all moved on.--Loveはドコ? (talk contribs) 00:27, 30 June 2008 (UTC)

Please

Slow down on editing the User: namespace. Editing your userpage too much will lead to it being locked again. Instead of making multiple small edits, why not instead use the preview button (Alt + Shift + P) to check your edits before saving the page? Thank you. --Porygon-Z 10:46, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

For someone who isn't an admin, you sure enjoy claiming that you can edit the protected Pokémon Platinum page...ΘρtιmαtumTalk 08:50, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

I edit things RELATED to Platinum. As in, Giratina, Shaymin, Dragon Trio, etc. --Arutoa 00:16, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
