Welcome

Welcome to Bulbapedia, Busta Scorpio!

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:Busta Scorpio/(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! --Tavisource 06:22, 30 October 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. ----PsychicRider 13:42, 1 November 2008 (UTC)

Lugia and Ho-Oh

I've went ahead and removed the categories listing you in "users with a Lugia" and "users with a Ho-Oh", and also deleted the categories in question. This is because we don't consider Lugia and Ho-Oh event legendaries despite the fact that an event required to get them within the GBA games themselves, since both can be obtained through Generation II without an event, Ho-Oh can come from Colosseum without an event, and Lugia can come from XD: Gale of Darkness without an event. Categories for event Pokémon are reserved exclusively for Pokémon that can legitimately be obtained only through an event (as opposed to glitches or cheating devices), which Lugia and Ho-Oh are not. --Shiningpikablu252 16:06, 28 November 2008 (UTC)

Categorizing

Please remember to categorize any and all new pages that you create. Also, please do not use "You" in articles. Thank you. --PAK Man Talk 06:59, 3 December 2008 (UTC)

Ho-Oh

That's a pretty good image you got there, did you scan it in yourself? Do you have any more cards that are on the list of images needed that you could add? MaverickNate 05:02, 7 December 2008 (UTC)

For security issues, I need to ask if you are scanning those, or if you are getting them from somewhere. Which is it? MaverickNate 22:32, 8 December 2008 (UTC)
But, I am very thankful that you are uploading images. MaverickNate 22:34, 8 December 2008 (UTC
Yes I am scanning them except for the Ho-Oh one which was scanned by my cousin for me (That's why it doesn't look as good). Busta Scorpio 05:03, 9 December 2008 (UTC)
That is a relief. Thank you! MaverickNate 10:21, 9 December 2008 (UTC)
