Spelling

Make sure you spell "Pokémon" with a capital P and an accent over the é. The é can be found in the character palette below the editing screen, and the P... well, I hope you can find that yourself :P —darklordtrom 10:11, 26 October 2009 (UTC)

Userpage

Always make sure you preview your edits by clicking the 'Preview Edit' button before saving your changes. This results in less changes listed in the Recent Changes page. Also, make sure you balance out your edits by editing the main space at least more then you edit your userpage.

Also, when linking to a Pokémon page for example where you have [Alakazams], instead use the template
{{p|Alakazam}}

if it's plural you could have the 's' after that, such as this: Alakazams. Make sure you always use that template, as it prevents it from linking to a disambiguation page. –Derian 13:08, 26 October 2009 (UTC)

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! --Psyライダー 13:42, 26 October 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. In the past, no one was allowed to edit their userpages because some users were over-editing their own userpages. Your personal editing privileges can be taken away, so please do not edit your page any more for now. Thank you. --Turtwig A Contributions Talk 00:30, 27 October 2009 (UTC)

When making new sub pages

Always put in the User namespace. In short, always put User:<name>/<whatever it is>.--ForceFire 07:35, 11 November 2009 (UTC)
