Welcome

Welcome to Bulbapedia, Bowboyxxx!

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.
  • Read over the style primer before making your edits. It is a basic outline of Bulbapedia style. For a more in-depth set of rules, see the manual of style.
  • Keep an eye on the Messages from the Editor on the main page, to stay informed on current events on Bulbapedia.
  • The word Pokémon is spelled with a capital P and an accented é. The é can be accessed by holding Alt and typing either 130 or 0233 on a Windows computer, and by using Option + e, then e again on a Mac. Otherwise, you can easily 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 capital B. 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.
  • 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. This is done so that both Bulbapedia and Bulbanews have access to the images uploaded. To activate your account at the Archives and Bulbanews, please login there using the same username and password you use here on Bulbapedia.
  • If you want to make a page about a character you made up, please create it at User:Bowboyxxx/(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.
  • There are certain restrictions on the content and amount of userspace content a user is allowed. For details, see the Userspace policy
  • Unless prior permission is given, no user is permitted to edit another user's page. Furthermore, edits to other users' pages are permitted only if there are problems that spread to other parts of Bulbapedia, such as broken links that appear on the wanted pages, switching out duplicate images that appear on the Archives, etc.
  • Fan fictions, missions, riddles, games, and anything else deemed not suitable for the wiki will not be allowed. If you would like to add something, but do not know if it is acceptable, ask an administrator.
  • A list of administrators that you can contact in case of a problem can be found here.

Thank you, and have a good time editing here! --— Laoris (Blah) 15:24, 17 November 2008 (UTC)

Please

Slow down on editing the User: namespace. There are only three userspace edits allowed per day, and you have gone over the limit. 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. --- Kogoro | Talk to me - 05:50, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

Again

This is your second warning. Please refrain from editing the User: namespace too rapidly, or you will lose privileges. --- Kogoro | Talk to me - 06:01, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

Stop.

This is your final warning. Failure to comply with the limit on editing the User: namespace will cause you to lose the ability to edit it. --- Kogoro | Talk to me - 06:05, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

Okay dude.

Seriously. Your ONLY contributions have been to add to your userpage. You have done nothing else but this, and have ignored the repeated warnings to stop. I'm afraid that you've lost your userspace privileges for the time being. TTEchidna 06:25, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

Apologize

So sorry !! I thought I can edit and edit the whole day ... =P !! I'm sorry if I caused alot of troubles... =DDDDD

Don't forget to sign talk page edits, though. Four tildes. (~~~~) TTEchidna 06:33, 18 November 2008 (UTC)
LOL...I'm new here... Still learning !! Bowboyxxx 06:35, 18 November 2008 (UTC)
I'm having troubles for editing Mew Glitch page...(I'm currently writing up the Overview for Glitch Pokémon on Route 24) Each time, when I pressed the ' Enter button ' to leave 1 space, it save the page...Do you have any other method that you can teach,to leave 1 space without pressing the ' Enter ' button ? Thanks =) Bowboyxxx 07:16, 18 November 2008 (UTC)
That doesn't seem to make sense. Why would enter save the page? Alt+Shift+S does... As for what you're going for, it'd likely be better put in a template... and we try not to mix the glitch stuff with the non-glitch stuff... meaning that that stuff oughta stay on the Mew glitch's page. TTEchidna 07:19, 18 November 2008 (UTC)
Okies... I just write the whole thing in my Microsoft Word then Copy and Paste it into the Mew Glitch Page... Is that ok ? Bowboyxxx 07:23, 18 November 2008 (UTC)
Hmm...Then that infomation for the Glitch Pokémon should be place at ? Bowboyxxx 07:25, 18 November 2008 (UTC)
If you want to Copy & Paste, please use Notepad and not Microsoft Word. Word uses very bad characters for apostrophes ' & quotation marks ". - Kogoro | Talk to me - 07:31, 18 November 2008 (UTC)
Thanks alot !! ;D !! Bowboyxxx 07:47, 18 November 2008 (UTC)
Hey !! I have done writing up the information, but it isn't a non-glitch stuff... Actually... Using Mew Glitch, teleport away from the guy who says I saw your feet then the player battle other trainers INSTEAD of the Youngster with the lvl 17 Slowpoke,after the battle, the player would encounter other Pokémon INSTEAD of Mew...I just take note of these Mew Glitched Pokémons and the trainers that the player have to battle to encounter these Pokémons...Bowboyxxx 05:14, 20 November 2008 (UTC)
