Welcome

Welcome to Bulbapedia, Dolphin2!

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:Dolphin2/(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! --Shiningpikablu252 18:48, 12 July 2008 (UTC)

Hi!

I'm doing this for no reson at all! Yay me! Chimchar rocks! what starter Pokémon do you best? what was the first Pokémon you caught? I'm just curious. Dolphins_are_awesome! 21:40, 6 November 2008 (UTC)Dolphin2

Nice to see that you link to [[Rayquaza (Pokémon)]] instead of just [[Rayquaza]], but:

Link Templates

Please use link templates when linking to stuff such as Pokémon names, attacks, and the like. For example, {{p|Rayquaza}} instead of just [[Rayquaza]]. This is so you don't unintentionally link to a disambiguation page.

For a full crash course on link templates, look at the list of link templates. ----Kkllnn blastoise 22:31, 6 November 2008 (UTC)

As well, use the Preview button next to "Save Page" Happy editing!--Kkllnn blastoise 22:31, 6 November 2008 (UTC)

This page

"Jigglypuffs are cute" is your opinion that not everyone may agree with, and it has nothing to do with improving the article. Please stop adding your comment, thanks. Chocolate 19:23, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

Thank You

I'm glad you told me that, other wise I would have kept posting that until I was blue in the face :) Dolphins_are_awesome! 01:51, 13 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. --Tavisource 00:19, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

Your signature

I'm not an admin, but I can still inform people of signature violations. Since your user name is Dolphin2, having your name on your signature as "Rubyclaw" isn't allowed, per the signature policy. Chocolate 01:44, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

Actually Rubyclaw does violate it, but Dolphin lover thing doesnt--DCM((Shut the **** upSpy on My Edits))
I KNOW THAT! Why do you think I use it? Dolphins_are_awesome! 20:10, 16 November 2008 (UTC)

Link Templates

Please use link templates when linking to stuff such as Pokémon names, attacks, and the like. For example, {{m|Bite}} instead of just [[Bite]]. This is so you don't unintentionally link to a disambiguation page.

For a full crash course on link templates, look at the list of link templates. ----The Kkllnnator blastoise 21:52, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

Have I ever linked to disambiguation page? I think I know what I'm doing. Dolphins_are_awesome! 00:50, 26 November 2008 (UTC)
No, but still, you are supposed to use the link templates. {{m|Bite}} or {{p|Rayquaza}} are much easier than [[Bite (move)|Bite]] or [[Rayquaza (Pokémon)|Rayquaza]], I'm sure you'll agree with that.--The Kkllnnator blastoise 00:53, 26 November 2008 (UTC)
Well, I don't, so stop telling me about them. Dolphins_are_awesome! 00:56, 26 November 2008 (UTC)
link templates are a policy, use them or stop editing. -- MAGNEDETH 01:03, 26 November 2008 (UTC)
How often do I have to use link templates? Dolphins_are_awesome! 15:05, 26 November 2008 (UTC)
Everywhere where it is possible. UltimateSephiroth (user · talk · contrib) 15:07, 26 November 2008 (UTC)

Then why can we even make links and piped links? Dolphins_are_awesome! 15:09, 26 November 2008 (UTC)

Piped links are for something like- "Dawn's [[Johanna|mom]] woke her up every morning." They are for making things fit in the sentance. --RexRacer -talk 15:14, 26 November 2008 (UTC)

Oh. Dolphins_are_awesome! 15:34, 26 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?

Please...

You've been making too many edits to the User talk: namespace lately. Please take your conversations to the forums, a chatroom, e-mail, an IM service, or something similar, as that many edits will slow down the server. --Chocolate (Merry Christmas!) 16:02 12/22/2008

Hi

I noticed you have been editing the User: namespace a lot today. You may not be aware of this, but Bulbapedia has a Userspace policy that asks users to only edit their pages three times a day, at most. Instead of making multiple edits, why not use the Preview button (Alt + Shift + P) located right next to the edit button to look at your page and see how it is coming? That way, your page can look great while staying within the required amount of edits. Just wait until tomorrow, k? Thanks! --RexRacer -talk 22:31, 30 December 2008 (UTC)

Again

This is your second warning. Please refrain from editing the User: namespace too rapidly, or you will lose privileges. --The Dark Fiddler - Nos hablamos? 22:36, 30 December 2008 (UTC)

User Tags

we dont need anymore, thanks. -- MAGNEDETH 03:35, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

seriously, were good. -- MAGNEDETH 00:56, 30 January 2009 (UTC)

Hi

I noticed you have been editing the User: namespace a lot today. You may not be aware of this, but Bulbapedia has a Userspace policy that asks users to try and minimize the number of Userspace edits they make in a short period of time. Instead of making multiple edits, why not use the Preview button (Alt + Shift + P) located right next to the edit button to look at your page and see how it is coming? That way, your page can look great while staying within the required amount of edits. Just wait until tomorrow, ok? Thanks! --The Dark Fiddler - 10% Satisfaction Guaranteed! 21:33, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

But you said there wasn't a limit! Dolphins_are_awesome (and Vulpix are too)! 21:41, 16 February 2009 (UTC)
Butyou should know when to stop.--☆Coolピカチュウ! 21:43, 16 February 2009 (UTC)
I didn't say there was a limit.... The Dark Fiddler - 10% Satisfaction Guaranteed! 22:12, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

Cards

You do realize that Legendary Collection is just a bunch of reprints, right? MaverickNate 23:46, 17 March 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, but if I said they were Team Rocket then that would be incorrect. Dolphins_are_awesome (and Vulpix are too)! 01:52, 18 March 2009 (UTC)
What do you mean by that? The Team Rocket Mankey page says that it was reprinted in Legendary Collection... MaverickNate 01:55, 18 March 2009 (UTC)
I mean, I put the cards that I have. I have Legendary Collection, I put Legendary Collection. That simple. Dolphins_are_awesome (and Vulpix are too)! 13:59, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

Hold on!

If you did not read your last warning, then please read it now. You have edited the User: namespace too much for now. Please do not edit your page any more for now. Thank you. ---- MAGNEDETH 23:30, 21 April 2009 (UTC)

Sprites

Please, don't upload sprites in JPG format. Trainer sprites, such as the one you added to Lorelei‎, need to be in PNG format as well as have a transparent background. I apologize, but I had to delete your sprite of Lorelei‎. Thank you, however, for trying to help out, - Kogoro | Talk to me - 00:59, 6 May 2009 (UTC)

Sorry! I'll try to get it into PNG. Thanks! Dolphins_are_awesome (and Vulpix are too)! 01:10, 6 May 2009 (UTC)

If you haven't ever noticed the rules

Editing userpages other than your own is strictly against the rules; also, there shouldn't be mainspace redirects to the userspace. If I were you, I wouldn't even be editing the userspace, because someone up there(↑) messed up and you have five warning. That editing privilege is taken away after 4. You could use a refresher on the rules. MaverickNate 01:57, 14 July 2009 (UTC)

Platinum sprites

They are animated pngs. They do move, depending on what browser you are using. Pngs retain a lot more of the actual colors that are used in the games, so we are slowly getting pngs to replace the gifs. MaverickNate 23:11, 16 August 2009 (UTC) Oh. Thanks! Dolphins_are_awesome (and Vulpix are too)! 23:14, 16 August 2009 (UTC)

Stop.

Do not edit the User: namespace any more. In the past, we were not allowed to edit our pages at all because of users over-editing their pages. If you edit your page any more without making some edits to the mainspace, then the privilege for you to edit the userspace will be removed. ---- MAGNEDETH 17:22, 25 August 2009 (UTC)

Template

What are you trying to do with template:DL2? Everything you have there is already in the coding of {{DL}}... ht14 15:09, 2 September 2009 (UTC)

Also, on a similar note, did you ask TTE about the user talk template? It's his idea...unless you got it from RexRacer. Either way, give them credit... ht14 15:10, 2 September 2009 (UTC)
Ok, first off, I didn't know about DL. Second, I acctually got it from Kenji girl. Anyway, I'll give her credit. Dolphins are awesome (and Vulpix are too) 15:14, 2 September 2009 (UTC)
All right. Back to the first point. Look at {{DL}} and see for yourself. It's been around for a while now... ht14 15:16, 2 September 2009 (UTC)
In addition, you used DL as an example. You just proved my point. ht14 15:18, 2 September 2009 (UTC)
I'm deleting DL2. It's exactly the same as DL. They both allow alternate text. --electAbuzzzz 15:21, 2 September 2009 (UTC)

Can we drop it now please? Dolphins are awesome (and Vulpix are too) 15:27, 2 September 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, sorry... ht14 15:36, 2 September 2009 (UTC)

Thing like this...

You shouldn't be editing other people's userpages just to change things to what you think is better. The only reason you should ever edit a userpage other than yours is if you have permission from that user or if you are fixing a broken link.--Dark ICE (User:Cold)(page, talk) 21:24, 9 September 2009 (UTC)

Look,

Your failure to listen to these warnings has resulted in your userspace privileges being taken away. Your privileges may be returned in time. Please, next time listen to us. ---- MAGNEDETH 23:54, 18 September 2009 (UTC)

Excuse me

May I ask why you are removing all those section headers?--Dark ICE (User:Cold)(page, talk) 17:51, 19 September 2009 (UTC)

Well, Acording to Project Pokédex, those headers didn't need to be there. They wern't required, and they had no information. I'm just trying to get my userspace privaleges back by helping the project. Dolphins are awesome (and Vulpix are too) 17:54, 19 September 2009 (UTC)
I don't see where it says that. Could you please show me?--Dark ICE (User:Cold)(page, talk) 18:02, 19 September 2009 (UTC)
In this section it says that the titles in bold have to be there and the other ones should only be added when applicable. So, I took off the optional ones that wern't applicable. Dolphins are awesome (and Vulpix are too) 18:11, 19 September 2009 (UTC)
I would actually prefer if you simply comment these headers out using <!-- -->, so that people will easily be able to add them back when necessary. --electAbuzzzz 22:03, 16 November 2009 (UTC)
Ok. Thank you for letting me know! Dolphins are awesome (and Vulpix are too) 22:10, 16 November 2009 (UTC)

Userspace

Please stop editing your user page. You've made 8 userspace edits since 8 January 2011 and only 1 mainspace edits. So please focus more on making mainspace edits. Pokégeek 16:24, 29 May 2012 (UTC)

Sorry. I'll knock it off. Dolphins are awesome (and Vulpix are too) 16:28, 29 May 2012 (UTC)
