Hi

I noticed you have been editing the User: namespace a lot recently. 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. Heavy editing of these personal pages can put undue stress on the server, so please leave your page alone for now and go help out in the mainspace. Bulbapedia is an encyclopedia, after all, so please help us to complete it! If you edit the mainspace more often, you will be allowed to edit your userpage more often too. Thanks! ---- MAGNEDETH 17:31, 19 January 2010 (UTC)

Hey, I'm sorry about any unintentional stress I may have caused to the server, but I'm trying to get the swing of things here rather than mess up a load of other pages. I've used Wikis before, but nothing too advanced. I'll hold off from the continuous minor edits from here on out, but I'm still good to preview edits, right? and am I okay to use the Sandbox feature if I want to mess around with tables, layout etc.? Emp 17:38, 19 January 2010 (UTC)
well, you just gotta lay off the User: namespace. minor edits are ok, but its not beneficial to the site if all you do is make your own page look good. if youre not familiar with namespaces, check out our namespace explanation page. -- MAGNEDETH 17:44, 19 January 2010 (UTC)

I noticed you joined the fandom project

If you could, would you mind creating some of the project's needed articles listed here? It might help with revamping articles if they all existed... MaverickNate 20:14, 19 January 2010 (UTC)

Sure thing chief, I've got a few exams in the next few days though so I'll get started later in the week. I know enough about PPN and Razor Raven to start off those articles, but given I'm a veteran of GTS Plus [1] and GPX Plus [2] I'd be able to create comprehensive articles on both of those. Would those four be okay? I'm still unsure whether popularity beats affiliation in these situations though, I can't imagine how big this project would become if we covered every fan-site Emp 20:29, 19 January 2010 (UTC)

Signature Linking

Please link your username in your signature as [[User:Emp|Emp]] or {{u|Emp}}, NOT as [[Emp|User:Emp]]. Doing it the last way adds your username as an unwanted link on our wanted pages, something that's frowned upon here. --Shiningpikablu252 18:28, 20 January 2010 (UTC)

Talk Page Comments

Removing talk page comments, including the initial welcome template, is prohibited per Bulbapedia's talk page policy. Please do not remove any comments in the future. If you wish to clean old comments away, you should archive your talk page instead. Thank you! ---- MAGNEDETH 19:01, 20 January 2010 (UTC)

Since you have been so well at Terracotta Town..

I saw that you have added a picture for the Terracotta Town page. That is excellent--there are other locations in need of pictures to be constituted as non-stubs, such as Sayda Island and Dragon Holy Land. If you can, could you add pictures for those too? Additionally...would you find it convenient if a template or infobox that says 'this article is lacking important pictures'---that is, chiefly identifying and listing Location articles in need of pictures? Steph 20:53, 20 January 2010 (UTC)
Sorry, I don't mean to butt in, but I kinda am... I cannot speak for Emp, but personally I would find it very convienient if a template/infobox/category would identify Location articles in need of pictures, as I work around Location articles. Thanks/sorry, --Smartkidhen 21:02, 20 January 2010 (UTC)
Thanks, I'll do my best to improve some of the location articles, but I've scoured the internet and I can't seem to find any high-quality pics for either of those locations. I have a few high-quality episodes on my computer (one being Once More With Reeling!) so I'll see what I can extract from those. And I think we could use that sort of template, a lot of people have these episodes so there's nothing stopping us from improving those articles. I'll add Terracotta Town to my to-do-list, I've already got a screenshot of the contest hall so it just needs fleshing out a bit --Emp 22:14, 20 January 2010 (UTC)
Smartkidhen: I am glad you agree with me that the 'identifier' (template/infobox/category for Location articles in need of important pictures) should be made. Perhaps you could ask an admin about this, as to gain official approval if you would like to attempt to do it, or consult Turtwig A (who has successfully made an article on userspace that has since been decided worthy enough to become mainspace---) or Zesty Cactus (who experimented on an updated book template that has since been implemented.). Steph 22:38, 20 January 2010 (UTC)
The identifier (Cateogory) has since been made here. Hmdwgf has been working on adding pictures, but it seems that some help is needed. I suppose you (or the both of you, if Smartkidhen wishes to be included) should be able to help Hmdwgf? With multiple persons, progress will probably improve. Steph 17:23, 3 February 2010 (UTC)
