Welcome

Welcome to Bulbapedia, BonslyBoy!

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!

link templates

Please use them. See shortlinks.--Diby 08:12, 14 September 2008 (UTC)

Response to Link Templates

See, I did use a shortlink first, but when I saved the edit it came up as not written So I changed it. - unsigned comment from BonslyBoy (talkcontribs)

That's because you didn't capitalize Platinum, so it tried to link to Pokémon platinum Version, which doesn't exist, although Pokémon Platinum Version does.
At any rate, you also forgot to use {{p}} when linking to Heatran. Watch out for things like that. --Martonimos((Argh|Blargh)) 08:26, 14 September 2008 (UTC)

Response to the Response in the previous message

Okay, thanks, I'll make sure to be more careful in future. :) BonslyBoy 08:30, 14 September 2008 (UTC)

You don't have to create new sections for every comment. Just use the "edit" link at the side of the headings. Also, make sure you sign your comments with ~~~~.--Diby 08:32, 14 September 2008 (UTC)

Thanks again, I just edited to the 4 ~s just before you posted the message. BonslyBoy 08:33, 14 September 2008 (UTC)

There you go. --Martonimos((Argh|Blargh)) 08:35, 14 September 2008 (UTC)
