Welcome

Welcome to Bulbapedia, Ikarishipper900!

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.
  • Read over the style primer before making your edits. It is a basic outline of Bulbapedia style. For a more in-depth set of rules, see the manual of style.
  • 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.
  • 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:Ikarishipper900/(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! --ニョロトノ666 16:07, 8 August 2008 (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! --P S Yライダー 03:58, 7 May 2011 (UTC)

Oh I'm sorry! I didn't know that. >////< Um.... How do I archive it? I'm sorry.... Ikarishipper900 04:19, 7 May 2011 (UTC)
At the top, there's a move tab and you can move the talk page to an archive, such as "User talk:Ikarishipper900/Archive 1" or something. However, it would be better if you had more on your talk page before you did so, but it's up to you. --P S Yライダー 04:29, 7 May 2011 (UTC)
If it'd be better to leave it, I guess I'll leave it. I just didn't like having the giant welcome blob there. :-/ Thank you! Ikarishipper900 04:34, 7 May 2011 (UTC)

Hey

-pokes the second rule in the notice at the top-

Please make sure you pay attention to that. R.A. Hunter Blade 22:43, 8 May 2011 (UTC)

ARRRRRRGH. SORRY. ;--; Ikarishipper900 23:33, 8 May 2011 (UTC)
Um...... is my page protected because of this? :( Ikarishipper900 02:07, 10 May 2011 (UTC)
Nope. It's protected because you edited your userspace twice in one day. If you see the notice at the top of the page, you're only allowed one personal userspace edit per-day. :) Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 02:11, 10 May 2011 (UTC)
That's...... kind of exactly what I was asking, so I guess yes. And I guess that's fair. How long term is this may I ask? Ikarishipper900 02:16, 10 May 2011 (UTC)
Oh, right, sorry. Yeah. ^^; And it'll be protected for a week, so it'll come off May 15th. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 02:22, 10 May 2011 (UTC)
Okay. >__< This once a day thing is a little frustating for me because I tend to notice dumb typos or something I meant to do afterwards. Making this PAGE was a total frustration (except for the fun factor)..... I had to save it get the raw coding for the infobox but I should have thought it through more. I'm sorry :( Ikarishipper900 02:26, 10 May 2011 (UTC)
If you'd like my advice, I keep my page in a text file (notepad, word, etc.) and will edit it from time to time. Then after doing a decent amount of work on the main space, I'll apply all the changes I made on the text file to the user space. That way I get to avoid minor edits like that. :) Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 02:31, 10 May 2011 (UTC)
That sounds like a good idea. Thanks! :) Ikarishipper900 10:19, 10 May 2011 (UTC)
