Welcome to Bulbapedia, EtherealAether!

By creating your account you are now able to edit pages, join discussions, and expand the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia. Before you jump in, here are some ground rules:

  • Be nice to everyone. It's in the code of conduct.
  • Make good edits. Preview them before you save to make sure they're perfect the first time around.
  • Use wikicode and link templates when adding content to a page.
  • Use proper grammar and spelling, and read the manual of style.
  • You can't create a userpage until you've added to the encyclopedia. It's a privilege. See the userspace policy.
  • Use talk pages to resolve editing disputes. Don't "edit war," or constantly re-edit/undo the same thing on a page.
  • If you have a question about something, be proactive. Take a look at our FAQ. If you're still stuck, ask for help. The staff won't bite.
  • Sign all talk page posts with four tildes (~~~~). This will turn into your name and the time you wrote the comment.
  • For more handy links, see the welcome portal.
Thank you, and have a good time editing here!

Direct language in wikis

Please don't use "you" on articles, as this is an encyclopedia. Instead, always refer to the individual as a third person, with terms like "the player". Thanks. TheOriginalOne 16:28, 13 August 2013 (UTC)

Sorry, it was my first edit and I tried to be carefull but clearly missed something. I will try to pay extra attention next time. Thank you. EtherealAether (talk) 16:35, 13 August 2013 (UTC)EtherealAether
To leave the space at the beginning, type a colon (:) before your text. I typed 2 of them now to get a bigger space. TheOriginalOne 16:38, 13 August 2013 (UTC)
And I completely undid your edit because the story that you were trying to add was on the next sections. Don't put details in introductions, please. TheOriginalOne 16:40, 13 August 2013 (UTC)
Thank you for helping me, and It's ok, you did a much better job than me anyway. I'm sorry for causing so much trouble. It's just so much stuff to be aware at the same time I got a bit confused, surely it'll get easier with time, in the meantime I'll try to be more careful and help with little things until I get better.

No problem :P. It happens to almost all of us. And undoing it wasn't a big deal, because there's actualy an undo button next to the edit notices, that appear when you click on the "history" tab at the top of a page. TheOriginalOne 16:46, 13 August 2013 (UTC)
Could you possibly help me with a few doubts? I found a much better image for Nacrene City of Black and White but I don't have the privileges to upload any files yet, I also found a website with the staff for the My Pokemon Ranch (the game) but I also don't have the power to create any new pages, I also can't send PMs to contact anyone on the forums because I don't have enough posts. Since these abilities aren't available to me yet, do you know how should I send this information and to whom I should send it so said person could add it? What things do you suggest I edit in order to be able to help even more? And uhh... Sorry for being such an ignorant person, and thank you for wasting your time explaining all this to me ^^ EtherealAether (talk) 16:51, 13 August 2013 (UTC)
In Bulbapedia the files don't come from Bulbapedia itself, but from the archives, another division of Bulbagarden. The Bulbapedia pages for the files are just an uneditable copy of the original version. The accounts are unified, so just log in there normaly. As to the new pages thing, you have to be Autoconfirmed. I strongly suggest you read the Manual of Style and articles similar to the objective of your prototype before you create a new one. The welcome template at the beginning of this page will also probably help you. TheOriginalOne 16:59, 13 August 2013 (UTC)
Thank you, you are a very nice person, it's good to see that there are still such nice people around. I wish I could repay you in some way for your troubles. I'll just work hard to improve this encyclopedia instead! ^^ EtherealAether (talk) 17:11, 13 August 2013 (UTC)
