Welcome to Bulbapedia, Knowitall!

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!

PJ Lequerica

When checking uncategorized pages, I noticed you converted the aforementioned page (which was a redirect) to a practically blank page with almost no content: just two links, including a link to itself. I changed it back to a redirect. If you think PJ Lequerica needs a page, at least have some info on the subject first. Thanks! Berrenta (talk) 18:59, 30 October 2013 (UTC)

I do have info, I just didn't have permission to make articles at the time. I'm trying to make individual articles for all of the Johto members (with photos), but the problem I have now is uploading the photos to Bulbagarden Archives, since it keeps saying I don't have permission. Knowitall (talk)

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 Page button. Please try it out, so as not to clog up the Recent Changes. Also, if you want to edit multiple sections of the page, make sure that you click "edit this page" at the top of the page rather than editing it by section.

Link templates

Hey there! You did a great job on the new article for Pocket Monsters AG (New & Best)! Just one thing you may find useful in the future - you can use the {{so}} template to make linking to songs easier - for example, you can put {{so|Start of an Adventure}} instead of [[Start of an Adventure (song)|Start of an Adventure]] to get Start of an Adventure. There's a full list of link templates if you wanna check them out for future use - they can save you a lot of typing. Thanks again for your contributions :) --ZestyCactus 03:56, 4 March 2014 (UTC)

Wow, thanks for the tip! I'll keep that in mind. Knowitall (talk)
I've noticed your signatures don't have a time stamp. How are you signing your signature? Make sure that you use four ~ and not just three as four will display your signature as well as the time you wrote the remark. Thanks! --ZestyCactus 23:04, 7 March 2014 (UTC)
Signatures? Time stamp?? What???! Help me! I don't know what you're talking about! Knowitall (talk)
You may notice at the end of all my talk page comments I've written, after my username, it shows a date and time. This is called a time stamp as it shows the date and time I wrote that comment. When you've signed your talk page comments, I see it has your name and a link to your talk page (great!) but it is not showing the time you wrote the comment. What method do you use to write your name at the end? are you putting ~~~ or copying and pasting code or how else? As required by the Signature policy, your comments should include the date and time as well as your name. This can be done by typing ~~~~ or by using this nifty button "button_sig.png" at the top of the editing window. Sorry if I confused you. ^^' Thanks! --ZestyCactus 23:36, 7 March 2014 (UTC)
Oh, thanks for the tip! --Knowitall (talk) 23:39, 7 March 2014 (UTC)
No problem, thanks for understanding and keep up the good work :) --ZestyCactus 23:51, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

New articles

Hi, when creating a new article, make sure you link categories to it. For a full list of categories, go here. Also, a bit more info is appreciated, but when you can't think of more info than you already have, put a "stub" template on it. That way it'll get noticed easier so other users can work on the article. Thanks and happy editing! ☼ BlazingFist ☼ 20:55, 24 March 2014 (UTC)
