User talk:Ash Pokemaster

From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.

Welcome to Bulbapedia, Ash Pokemaster!

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 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. 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.
  • 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. You will have to register separately for it, as well. This is done so that both Bulbapedia and Bulbanews have access to the images uploaded.
  • If you want to make a page about a character you made up, please create it at User:Ash Pokemaster/(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.
  • 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!--Kuki 17:21, 12 April 2008 (UTC)

Pokémon in Greece

Hi. I temporarily moved the page you created to your userspace, because Project Globe does not allow mainspace stubs. After the article is fully written, we'll move it back to the mainspace. Thanks. --electAbuzzzz 11:27, 8 February 2010 (UTC)

All right, I think I will work on it later on today. --Ash_Pokemaster 11:29, 8 February 2010 (UTC)
OK. Overall, your style is good and I can see you're using the other articles as examples. That's great, that's the way to make a good article. One thing that's important to me in these articles is that they'll contain information about the dubbing of the series. The studio, the voice actors, etc. Fill it up, and we'll move it when it's ready. --electAbuzzzz 11:33, 8 February 2010 (UTC)

Bold text

Most of the words in articles don't need to be bolded for emphasis. Our Manual of Style discourages bolding text for emphasis, often times, a simple link to the related article is usually sufficient. Also, names don't need to be italicised. Thanks for understanding and we hope to see more contributions from you in the future. --ZestyCactus 20:32, 10 August 2010 (UTC)

If an edit you make is reverted more than once, please don't unrevert it, instead, discuss it on the article's talk page or with a staff member. In response to your use of the bolding, important text is usually just linked to a related article, not bolded. I also don't find it particularily aesthetically pleasing as it contrasts our usual style, but that's just my own personal opinion. --ZestyCactus 20:34, 10 August 2010 (UTC)


When you create a new article, make sure to put the appropriate Categories at the bottom of the page so it gets indexed properly. Cheers. —darklordtrom 20:39, 12 August 2010 (UTC)

Stadium player character

I honestly believe there is not enough information for it to warrant it's own article. What's missing in the main Player character article that can't be added there? What you call a story can easily be summarized by Stadium's own article, so it would just be repeating itself. I would advise you to finish the article in your userspace instead if you really believe it deserves it's own article. For now it's going to be a redirect. Thanks.
