Welcome to Bulbapedia, DoTheWave!

The Userspace Policy says that you should keep userspace edits (edits to User:DoTheWave) to a minimum, and outlines a few other guidelines for your userspace.

 Thank you, and have a good time editing here!

Fansprites

We don't want fanmade sprites in the actual articles (except for those from Project Custom Sprite (though I personally wish that this project never existed). That Red VS sprite doesn't belong to the Custom Sprite project and is likely used without permission. Even if it had permission, we still wouldn't want it. --Maxim 13:35, 13 April 2010 (UTC)

Erhem!

It has come to my attention (from RC) that you have 3 subpages made in one day. Please read the above notice carefully. It states that you do not edit your userpages more than once a day. As such, subpages from your username are still considered userspace. In other words, wait until the next day to edit your userspace once. For now though, edit in the mainspace. ht14 02:44, 17 April 2010 (UTC)

Privileges revoked

Your failure to listen to these warnings has resulted in your userspace privileges being taken away. Your privileges may be returned in time if you help Bulbapedia grow by contributing to the mainspace. Please, next time listen to us. ---- MAGNEDETH 02:19, 18 April 2010 (UTC)

Umm...

I would have thought you noticed by now, but it's Pokémon, not Pokemon. ht14 21:06, 19 April 2010 (UTC)

And it's Pokémon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea, not Pokémon Rangers and the Temple of the Sea. --Hmdwgf 06:21, 22 April 2010 (UTC)

Self-linking

There is absolutely no reason or need for a page to link to itself. Please stop doing this in the TrainerPoké templates (or anywhere else, really). 梅子 03:36, 15 May 2010 (UTC)

Hey

You seem to be doing the same thing that I'm doing (your doing Hoenn and I'm doing Sinnoh), do you think I should do minor Pokémon with the {{InactivePoké}} template, too? I'm currently using {{TrainerPoké}}, even for minor characters. Takharii ~ Talk! 00:07, 22 May 2010 (UTC)

Hello...

Hi, Wave. Just wanted to point out to you that Spritester just ripped off your page. If you have a problem, you might want to talk to him/her/it/Narwhal about it. :D CuboneKing 22:02, 22 May 2010 (UTC)

I know I'm responding really late, but he hasn't done anything too bad, it was fixed, (thank you) and I'm sure [Enter Pronoun Here] won't do it again. However, if it does happen again I'll talk to him/her/it/Narwhal/Daethvadar on a Bulbapedia account about it. No worries. DoTheWave 04:18, 19 November 2010 (UTC)

Userspace editing

As you know, the limit is three per day. You've edited your userspace four times today. Please give it a rest for now and return to the mainspace. You can finish your userspace editing in a few days. —darklordtrom 01:47, 24 July 2010 (UTC)

Your userpage

It was deemed inappropriate and a violation of the userspace policy by the Editorial board. In addition, we want to purge all necessary images that are on the Archives. If you haven't noticed, there are over 50000 images there, even though we barely even need half that much. Also, your signature is in violation of the signature policy. All signature text needs to be normal sized. MaverickNate 15:07, 5 August 2010 (UTC)

usertags

Bulbapedia policy states that usertags must be created in the userspace before going into the template namespace, and will only do so if used by 5 users and approved by 2 admins. Because of this, please create them at User:DoTheWave/name. Thanks, Turtwig's A-B-Cs (talk | contribs) 17:11, 17 August 2010 (UTC)

Two things

  1. we dont allow pages for riddles.
  2. edit the mainspace. you were put into abuse back in April, and you did good and were released in July, but have since done very little. in a time where we have a lot of work to do (learnset tables, BW info, and just general page updates), userspace abuse cant be tolerated. im afraid you are going back into abuse. -- MAGNEDETH 22:31, 13 September 2010 (UTC)

{{Ash}}

Not [[Ash]]. Also, BubbleBeam, not {{m|Bubblebeam}}.

Thank you.--Cold (talk) 23:06, 5 November 2010 (UTC)

Questions on your Userpage

One word: HILARIOUS! :) --JediKnightDTV 03:35, 19 November 2010 (UTC)

Thank you :). Its nice to know someone appreciates your effort. If you have any good ones I could probably post them. DoTheWave 03:59, 19 November 2010 (UTC)

Your block

As discussed in our email exchanges, you will be blocked for 1 week, because you still sockpuppeted with the StripedRK9 account. I hope you don't make any more accounts in the future. Your brother has been blocked for 3 years; that should give him enough time to mature and make constructive edits to this wiki. You can appeal for an earlier time if you believe this is too much. Also, don't take content from other user's pages without their permission. :P Jellotalk 00:42, 22 November 2010 (UTC)

Hey you

You should try my usertag, because on one of your other pages it says you have one. Gliscorguy54 19:48, 8 January 2011 (UTC)

Userspace

you were removed from abuse, for the second time, on November 18th. since then youve made about 50 mainspace contribs. however, youve also made about 25 userspace contribs. thats a ratio of 2 mainspace to 1 userspace. ideally, the ratio should be around 25 mainspace to 1 userspace. you need to ease up on the userspace. if this warning is not heeded, then im afraid your next abuse visit is going to be massively longer. -- MAGNEDETH 23:25, 8 February 2011 (UTC)

Userspace

Hey, we appreciate that you're abiding to the "one edit a day" rule, but that's all you've edited since the site has been unlocked. I'm just wanting to remind you to not forget about the main space as it is the most important thing here on Bulbapedia. :) Thanks! Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 01:48, 13 April 2011 (UTC)

Abuse

Since you seem to ignore all the warnings about not making too much userspace edits, you've been put to the abuse usergroup again.--Den Zen 21:17, 24 January 2013 (UTC)

Usertags

As stated in the Usertag policy, usertags must be created in the user space. Only when five people are using the usertag and the approval of two Staff members it can be a main-spaced template. As a result the User Linked tag will be moved to your user space. Lady Ariel 21:29, 2 February 2013 (UTC)

I deleted your usertag since you aren't allowed to create userpages (which it did become). Also, edits like this are essentially vandalism (even if you undo them), so don't do them anymore.--Den Zen 22:10, 2 February 2013 (UTC)
