Welcome

Welcome to Bulbapedia, Madch94!

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.
  • The manual of style is very important. Make sure to read it. It outlines all official policies of Bulbapedia.
  • 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. For an explanation on their use, see the page on shortlinks.
  • 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:Madch94/(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! --ケンジガール 18:18, 28 June 2008 (UTC)

Shipping pages

Don't create shipping pages on the main space. Always appened Shipping: right before the shipping name. --ケンジガール 18:18, 28 June 2008 (UTC)

Page Categorization

Please categorize every new page you create. The only legitimate content page that should remain uncategorized is the Main Page. Nothing else. --Shiningpikablu252 15:44, 29 June 2008 (UTC)

Gender

We won't put in that unless someone in the anime refers it as he/she. -Billy4b2004 16:24, 21 December 2008 (UTC)

Everyone may know that Meowth is male...

But since it hasn't been confirmed in the anime, then we don't put it in. You can't just put a gender just because of their voice, or they fell in love, it needs to be confirmed through dialogue. (Or gender differences, for Pokémon debuting this season.(And even then...)) The Dark Fiddler - Nos hablamos? 16:25, 21 December 2008 (UTC)


Please

Please sign your comments with four tidles (~~~~) so that everyone knows who put the comment there. Thanks!----Cassandra Teh Kkllnnator K 19:31, 25 December 2008 (UTC)

And another thing, link templates. Instead of [[Kate (Ranger)|Kate]], {{ra|Kate}}. It's much easier, and it gets the reader to the same place. The list is at list of link templates.--Cassandra Teh Kkllnnator K 19:36, 25 December 2008 (UTC)
