Welcome

Welcome to Bulbapedia, DarkSally!

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.
  • 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. 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. 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:DarkSally/(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! --Tavisource 19:35, 23 July 2008 (UTC)

Please

Slow down on editing the User: namespace. 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. ----M-M-DRule! 12:16, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

Ok...Sorry...the next time I'll edit my page I'll do what you said --DarkSally(talk) 19:59, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

Re: Re: W l'Italia!

Beh, più siamo meglio è! --Firempoleon 18:32, 29 August 2008 (UTC) P.S.: Auguri x ieri ;) --Firempoleon 18:32, 29 August 2008 (UTC)

Hey

I found a couple of signature templates (actually, one was just a transclusion of the other, so...) in your userspace, which, as you probably know, is against the userspace policy. I've deleted them. Just wanted to make sure you knew. --Martonimos 06:44, 12 November 2008 (UTC)

I must admit that I didn't know that... thanks for the warning --DarkSally(talk) 13:39, 12 November 2008 (UTC)

Images

You're allowed to have up to two personal images on the Archives, so as long as you don't go over that limit, you can upload and use your images on your page. If you do need to do more than two, you can always upload them to photobucket or something and link to them externally.

Oh, and when I said your signature template was against the userspace policy? I meant the signature policy. Sorry about that. --((Marton imos)) 01:59, 3 December 2008 (UTC)

Well, thank you. About the mistake you made with userspace/signature policy, don't worry: I've understood there was something wrong. However, I've read it. Thanks again. --DarkSally(talk) 14:54, 3 December 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. --The Dark Fiddler - Smarter than the average bear! 15:15, 3 December 2008 (UTC)

Excuse me, but I haven't gone over the limit...I've made two edits on my user page--DarkSally(talk) 17:30, 3 December 2008 (UTC)
My bad, I misread the two UserTalk edits as Userspace edits. Sorry! The Dark Fiddler - Smarter than the average bear! 13:49, 6 December 2008 (UTC)
It's not a problem, don't worry :) --DarkSally(talk) 14:04, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

What a weird coincidence.

Your tags say you're 16 and your birthday is August 28. I'm 16 and my birthday's August 25! It's kind of scary that we were born 3 days apart. SharKingHo ho ho! 14:23, 16 December 2008 (UTC)

Wow, such a traditional user!

I don't think I've EVER heard a trainer admit that they had R/B, kudos to you! Heh, it's true though, you've got many Usertags; I learned a few HTML tags from you :D.- unsigned comment from Dark Boye (talkcontribs)

Like Drifloon and Drifblim?

I see you have an affinity for the two. I like the drawing you made, and I think you'll like the Drifblim on my exploration team. SharKingHo ho ho!

Yeah, they are pretty good. Were you just doodling? -- Clarky13 10:43, 27 December 2008 (UTC)
Wow, I'm glad you like my pic ^^ ...However, I wasn't doodling: I was focused only on the drawing I was making, because the lesson was very boring and it didn't interest me ^^ --DarkSally(complaints department) 10:54, 27 December 2008 (UTC)

RE:RE:Wow, such a traditional user!

Heh, they were VERY useful. I guess I see you as a traditional user probably because you're one of the few who played Red/Blue and got involved in every generation to date. ALso because you're also pretty involved with the site as a whole as well. BTW, is your current team updated? I think the page's been the same for a while now, so I dunno why there's a slowdown order on this page. - unsigned comment from Darkboye (talkcontribs)

@Darkboye: Please post the new sections to the bottom of the page, and sign your messages on talk pages with four tildes (~~~~. UltimateSephiroth (about me · chat · edits) 21:54, 29 December 2008 (UTC)
To Dark Boye: well, thanks for explaining me what you meant ^^... however, the section "My current team" is updated: the fact is that I prefer to play Sapphire and Pearl instead of LeafGreen because in Sapphire and Pearl I've still got to beat the Elite Four, and in LeafGreen I've done it. So I don't play LG very much and my team remains the same ^^ --DarkSally(complaints department) 11:09, 30 December 2008 (UTC)

You've got Pal Park, right?

You should forward some Pokémon over to Gen. IV and participate in the IPGL. I'd love to see how far you get :)Boye 00:27, 26 January 2009 (UTC)Dark Boye

Oh, so most of your pokemon come from Sapphire? Boye 00:02, 27 January 2009 (UTC)Dark Boye;hehe, sorry forgot to sign

Blanked

you blanked one of your sub-pages. do you want it deleted? -- MAGNEDETH 22:23, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

If it's possible, yes: I'd like to delete it because I find it useless --DarkSally(complaints department) 14:33, 27 January 2009 (UTC)
Use this instead: {{delete}}. It's better not to blank pages... ht14 14:35, 27 January 2009 (UTC)
OK, I'll use it. Thank you. --DarkSally(complaints department) 14:36, 27 January 2009 (UTC)
No problem. If you notice, there's this category: Pages to be deleted. That appears if the template {{delete}} is used to show admins what to delete. They'll decide who wants it deleted and whether it's notable to delete it. ht14 14:38, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

Silcoon

lol, finally got a Silcoon, huh. How happy were you when your Wurmple evolved, lol? Dark Boye 06:13, 3 March 2009 (UTC)

Lol, what are you gonna do with the other six? Dark Boye 02:20, 4 March 2009 (UTC)

Random

If you switch some letters in BMUWPYE, you get BUM WYPE. Garrison12795 15:07, 12 June 2009 (UTC)

Account issues

If you want us to create you a new account, we can do that, but deleting accounts can cause some problems in the backend, so we'd prefer not to do that. We can block this one permanently. In fact, we might even be able to get you your old name back--but I haven't played with the software of late, so I can't make any promises. Talk to me, let me know what you wanna do. -- evkl (need to talk?) 17:31, 27 July 2009 (UTC)
