  • 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. 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.

Thank you, and have a good time editing here!

Inserting false/unconfirmed/incorrect information/Gibberish

is a blockable offense and can get you blocked for 1 week-Infi-block, unless you can provide a source for that info on the Larvesta line.- unsigned comment from Muk-a-matic (talkcontribs) Do it again and I will contact a admin.--Muk-a-matic-Maketh the Muk go round... 06:31, 22 May 2011 (UTC) i was writing it based upon characteristics derived from moves and behaviour in-game. If you want to find other things like it, look on like 1 in 3 pokémon info pages.Herbalfusion 10:50, 22 May 2011 (UTC)

Personal derivations are not facts. They are opinions. Unless you can provide a screenshot(animé or games), in-game text, or a statement from TPCI or Nintendo that literally states or shows your claims, I'm afraid it's still vandalism. On this site we only post facts, not assumptions, rumors, derivations, or any other such things unless they are relevant to the greater fandom. If you want to compose personal descriptions, go to the forums or the Oakeaki. Here, we have work to do. This is your last friendly reminder. Literal facts only.--Muk-a-matic-Maketh the Muk go round... 16:26, 22 May 2011 (UTC) That's it. I'm reporting you so your vandalism will be reverted. Have fun writing fandexes at home.--Muk-a-matic-Maketh the Muk go round... 22:06, 23 May 2011 (UTC)What the hell! I didn't even make anything up! It's like anything I change you get pissed off by!Herbalfusion 07:36, 25 May 2011 (UTC)I saw those Cottonee bits on a japanese episode! To make it even more obvious, I linked the statements to their related moveset!Herbalfusion 07:38, 25 May 2011 (UTC)

The Preview Button

Instead of editing a page several times in a row, try using the preview button to make sure your edit looks the way you want it to. It's right next to the Save Changes button... Please try it out, so as not to clog up the Recent Changes. Thanks! --Masatoshitalk 09:40, 17 May 2011 (UTC)

Second warning. Please preview and edit the whole page at once rather than editing and saving each section individually. --SnorlaxMonster 07:39, 15 June 2011 (UTC)

Sorry! Didn't realize the templates were relevant to what types they use, I was just looking for good color matches. I'll try to not do it again :) Herbalfusion 08:20, 15 June 2011 (UTC)

A few things

You seemed to be a bit confused on how linking works here.

  1. There is no need to link to the page that you are currently editing. Doing that creates a bolded text. For example: User talk:Herbalfusion.
  2. You do not to have to add extra wording to a link when said link is the same wording. For example: On Fennel's page you kept doing this: [[Iris|Iris]], [[Officer Jenny|Officer Jenny]], [[Team Rocket|Team Rocket]]. It's redundant. Instead, it should have just been [[Iris]], [[Officer Jenny]], and [[Team Rocket]].
  3. It is not necessary to link the same person/place/thing every time its/his/her name is mention. For example, you kept linking Fennel's name every time it appeared. Once or once every few sections will suffice.
  4. Make sure you use the correct link templates. Anytime a Pokémon species, you always used the {{p|}} template. So instead of [[Musharna]], you should use {{p|Musharna}}. Also make sure to use the {{an|}} template when wanting to link to an anime character with the (anime) subtext. For example: Anytime you are refering to the anime's version of Iris, you should use {{an|Iris}} instead of [[Iris]] as we are talking about the anime character and not the game character. Brock, Misty, May, Dawn, and Cilan follow the same rules as well as a few other characters.

Well... I hope this information will help you in the future. Thank you for reading. --ケンジガール 09:48, 14 June 2011 (UTC)

Thanks!! That makes life so much easier. I was a little unsure with the Fennel links when I did them, this makes so much more sense! :) Herbalfusion 10:31, 14 June 2011 (UTC)

Talk Page Comments

Oh! I'm so sorry! I was just trying to clean it up, I'll refer to the policy in future. I must be such a nuisance! :) Herbalfusion 09:40, 15 June 2011 (UTC)
