Welcome

Welcome to Bulbapedia, LordArceus!

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:LordArceus/(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.
  • There are certain restrictions on the content and amount of userspace content a user is allowed. For details, see the Userspace policy
  • Unless prior permission is given, no user is permitted to edit another user's page. Furthermore, edits to other users' pages are permitted only if there are problems that spread to other parts of Bulbapedia, such as broken links that appear on the wanted pages, switching out duplicate images that appear on the Archives, etc.
  • Fan fictions, missions, riddles, games, and anything else deemed not suitable for the wiki will not be allowed. If you would like to add something, but do not know if it is acceptable, ask an administrator.
  • A list of administrators that you can contact in case of a problem can be found here.

Thank you, and have a good time editing here! --Coolピカチュウ! 00:09, 21 October 2008 (UTC)

Signing

Please sign talk pages with four tildes. Tildes are these things. --ニョロトノ666 00:14, 21 October 2008 (UTC)

Again, please use the tildes. If you don't know what they are or how to access them, just say so! --ニョロトノ666 00:59, 21 October 2008 (UTC)

No problem (yes, I know what tildes are: the 'squigglies' ~)...why is that, though? LordArceus 16:28, 21 October 2008 (UTC)

Ah! I see - they auto-add the time/date/user code. Thanks for the heads-up. LordArceus 16:28, 21 October 2008 (UTC)

I know you're new..

..But anything regarding a Pokémon's gender or speculation and stuff belongs in the forums see here.--Coolピカチュウ! 00:36, 21 October 2008 (UTC)

My apologies

I should have looked more carefully at what you had typed out. You did bring up a legitimate point, and I don't know why CoolPikachu tagged the page for deletion. I have restored the page with your comments. I deeply apologize for not looking more closely at the article. --PAK Man Talk 22:54, 21 October 2008 (UTC)

Thank you! I appreciate your quick response, too. LordArceus 01:11, 22 October 2008 (UTC)

Signature

I noticed you ran a test of your signature which included an Arceus sprite. Unfortunately, the signature policy here at Bulbapedia does not allow for this, as it states that "all signatures will be text-only". Sorry. I thought it best to let you know before you started signing with it regularly. Cipher (Talk) 17:11, 22 October 2008 (UTC)

Oh...so that's the ban people were talking about. Thanks for filling me in. LordArceus 23:47, 22 October 2008 (UTC)

Talk Page Comments

Please don't erase talk page comments for no reason. Trust me, you do NOT want to end up like Big Johnno, who got into an edit war with a sysop over comments the former had erased and was trying to keep erased. That user ended up blocked and subsequently had every erased comment restored. --- Kogoro | Talk to me | 18:14, 5 November 2008 (UTC)

Okay, but I didn't think I had much use for the 'welcome new user' stuff anymore. Apparently, I was mistaken... In any case, I woulbn't delte any other comments not made by me, not made in a million years. Thank you all the same. LordArceus 19:39, 5 November 2008 (UTC)

BTW

If you want a simpler way of making user tags other than that monster of text you had on mainpage try this

{{User Template|Plain text here|wikipedia/bulbapedia link here|Text that links here|Image for user tag here|text color|Tag color|Image background color}}
Its much simpler--DCM((Shut the **** upSpy on My Edits))
Thanks, all I did was copy the format from a preexisting tag and edit it, but this was is far easier. LordArceus 20:06, 23 November 2008 (UTC)

Please

Slow down on editing the User: namespace. There are only three userspace edits allowed per day, and you have gone over the limit. Editing your userpage too much will lead to it being locked again. Instead of making multiple small edits, why not instead use the preview button (Alt + Shift + P) to check your edits before saving the page? Thank you. --RexRacer -talk 20:29, 23 November 2008 (UTC) I went over by mistake...thanks you for warning me. LordArceus 22:53, 23 November 2008 (UTC)

Again

This is your second warning. Please refrain from editing the User: namespace too rapidly, or you will lose privileges. --Chocolate((Talk to Me|Look at My Contributions)) 19:23, 26 November 2008 (UTC)
Since your sandbox is in your name space, it counts towards making edits to the User: name space, and you made 4 edits to it today. Chocolate((Talk to Me|Look at My Contributions)) 19:23, 26 November 2008 (UTC)

Oh, ****. Now I feel stupid; I should have realized that User offshoots count too. Thanks for telling me.... :( LordArceus 19:24, 26 November 2008 (UTC)
Don't forget, you can always test in the main sandbox. And if someone erases your test there, it can always be added back. Chocolate((Talk to Me|Look at My Contributions)) 19:27, 26 November 2008 (UTC)

Put a larger box around the box containing the two Koffings, and then go to the archives and upload a new version using the newly created pic--KukiTalk 23:48, 26 November 2008 (UTC)

TTE reverted it already; you can ask him about that. LordArceus 23:51, 26 November 2008 (UTC)

On the Bulbagarden Archives!--KukiTalk 23:52, 26 November 2008 (UTC)

Do what on the Archives? I don't even have the image anymore; TTE reverted it. LordArceus 23:54, 26 November 2008 (UTC)

Modify this image Koffingoldandnew.PNG by putting a larger box around it. Upload it under the name Project SpriteDex logo.png, and press ignore warnings. You will have a new logo by then--KukiTalk 23:59, 26 November 2008 (UTC)

Preview

To avoid what happened here, you could easily use the preview button next to the save button or press Alt+Shift+P. And thanks for the help, I appreciate it!--The Kkllnnator カメックス 20:53, 27 November 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, I usually do. >_< I promise I won't screw up again. LordArceus 20:55, 27 November 2008 (UTC)

ER

While I greatly appreciate your help, you should know that some disambigs are actually redirects. (Mamoswine) I've already been warned for this, and I felt I should probably tell you too.--The Kkllnnator カメックス 21:09, 27 November 2008 (UTC)

Wait, why does it matter if I bypass a nonexistant disambig? Mamoswine doesn't have a disambig at all, so both Mamoswine and マンムー link to to Mamoswine. I don't see the problem -.-; LordArceus 21:14, 27 November 2008 (UTC)
Click マンムー to find out.--The Kkllnnator カメックス 21:15, 27 November 2008 (UTC)
*feels like he's been shot* Ugh. So, when there's no diambig, I need to link to the Pokémon article. Thanks...*winces in pain*

How do I fix that? Typing マンムー/Mamoswine/whatever works fine, but マンムー is still that second redirect. LordArceus 21:21, 27 November 2008 (UTC)

Uh? It redirects to the actual article. I see nothing wrong with it.--The Kkllnnator カメックス 21:22, 27 November 2008 (UTC)

(resetting indent) Never mind; I was confused because the "Redirected from マンムー" notice at the top of the page was taking me to the redirect page...which it's supposed to. Well, now I'll go fix the rest. LordArceus 21:23, 27 November 2008 (UTC)

OMG! You guys got that far last night?!--The Kkllnnator カメックス 20:19, 28 November 2008 (UTC)
Okay, I'll get busy on it starting from Shellder, and yes, we certainly did. Bulbapedian - Talk 20:21, 28 November 2008 (UTC)
Not last night, all my work from Chatot down was today. Currently going down from Ho-oh. LordArceus 20:22, 28 November 2008 (UTC)
Haha, i already got started on Shellder! MWahahahaha!--The Kkllnnator カメックス 20:23, 28 November 2008 (UTC)
XD Now DCM is helping. I guess I'm going up from Cyndaquil now. LordArceus 20:23, 28 November 2008 (UTC)
When did I call DCM a jerk? I only said that to Kkllnn, to whom I didn't actually call a jerk, but simply telling was acting like one. Do not say I said that to DCM, because that would be lying. Bulbapedian - Talk 21:47, 28 November 2008 (UTC)
Apparently you didn't notice that your "okay, but that doesn't mean he should be a jerk" comment ended up directly under DCM's post. In any case, Kk was not, I repeat, not being a jerk. This also means he was not "acting like a jerk." LordArceus 21:51, 28 November 2008 (UTC)
What I'm getting at is the fact that the things he said following the completion of the "redirect-a-thon" were in no way at all kind to me. He was acting like doing that faster than I did or something made him want to (Insert word here). Whether or not you were encouraging him is up to your discretion. By the way, I'm not going to give you an adjective as to how I thought he was acting, because anything I would say would be followed with "No, he was not!:". Bulbapedian - Talk 21:59, 28 November 2008 (UTC)
I saw the template on his talk page you put. Bulbapedian - Talk 22:02, 28 November 2008 (UTC)

You think I put that there?! Wow...he put that there (that was his userspace), and I think you're misinterpreting something harmless as a personal insult. Remember, I've read every instance of you and Kkllnn talking to you for the past two days. LordArceus 22:06, 28 November 2008 (UTC)

He's probably referring to this.--The Kkllnnator カメックス 22:15, 1 December 2008 (UTC)

Mission Complete! Clear Time: 48:00:00 (approx.) Your Rate For Redirecting The Names Is: 100%

(The heading is a reference to Metroid) Yes, the redirect-a-thon has come to an end. Sadly, up next is all the moves... LordArceus 21:43, 28 November 2008 (UTC)

And the bad news is, there's 485 with known Japanese names. However, this might help, and I've already finished the first 20 by 21:34, 1 December 2008 (UTC).--The Kkllnnator カメックス 21:34, 1 December 2008 (UTC)
I'll get started on from the other end soon; right now I can't due to three other people needing this computer (as usual, ugh). LordArceus 00:25, 2 December 2008 (UTC)

Transparency

Could you please make this sprite transparent for me. Thanks, --MisterE13 02:08, 1 December 2008 (UTC)

No problem. I'm at school right now, and these computers only have GIMP (which I hate), so I'll do it when I get home. I'll post it on your talk tage. LordArceus 14:20, 1 December 2008 (UTC)
Thanks and sorry about the background. It just came like that when I copied our existing Remoraid menusprite into Paint. I know we already have a similar image but I cropped this one so it would fit better into the Mantyke/Mantine evobox. It's all part of a new system I'm trying to spearhead here. Please come to the Mantyke Talkpage and let your voice be heard if I encounter problems.
Dude, What time zone are you in? Your still in school?DCM((Shut the **** upSpy on My Edits))

I'm GMT -4/-5 (-4 currently). And my school is from 7:45-2:30. LordArceus 12:43, 2 December 2008 (UTC)

Could you do these too please? --MisterE13 01:41, 10 December 2008 (UTC)
Again, no problem...as soon as I get home from school. LordArceus 17:30, 10 December 2008 (UTC)
Thanks again.--MisterE13 03:22, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

Don't worry

Action is being taken. --PAK Man Talk 18:04, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

Thanks! I appreciate it.LordArceus 18:04, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

Gasp!

did you say that you are DCM-neutral! Thats IMPOSSIBLE!DCM((曲奇饼妖怪Spy on My Edits))

Usertags

I know, I know, your probably thinkin', "Oh no... Another n00b...", but how can I make Usertags? GuyNamedSean 05:17, 19 December 2008 (UTC)
