Welcome

Welcome to Bulbapedia, Bassmasta J!

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.
  • 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! Tina δ 01:25, 25 January 2008 (UTC)

Templates

Don't subst in notice templates like the one for Project GlitchDex. TTEchidna 05:26, 23 March 2008 (UTC)

Link Templates

Your edit on Z4 was greatly lacking in link templates, which you should use when linking to stuff such as main series game versions, types, Pokémon, and more. For example, use {{v2|Yellow}}, {{t|Poison}}, and {{p|Squirtle}} instead of just plain [[Yellow]], [[Poison]], and [[Squirtle]]. This way, you don't accidentially link to disambiguation pages.

For a full course on how link templates work, look at the shortlinks. --Shiningpikablu252 02:51, 20 April 2008 (UTC)
