User talk:Master D

Welcome

Welcome to Bulbapedia, Master D!

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.
  • The word Pokémon is spelled with a capital P and an accented é. The P, of course, is accessed easily by holding Shift and pressing the P key, while the é can be accessed using Alt + 130 or Alt + 0233 on a Windows computer, and Option + e, then e again on a Mac. Otherwise, you can 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 captial B (which is, again, accessed by holding Shift and pressing the B key). 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 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).
  • If you want to make a page about a character you made up, please create it at User:Master D/(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.
  • 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! Moldy128Orange 13:45, 27 March 2008 (UTC)

Hey!

Stop changing the images! You know, there is a button next to Save Page called Show Preview. press that!PokeManiac102 18:53, 27 March 2008 (UTC)

Stop before you are blocked!PokeManiac102 18:57, 27 March 2008 (UTC)
Please do not use encyclopedic articles as a sandbox. If you want to make sandbox-style edits, do it at Bulbapedia:Sandbox or User:Master D/Sandbox. Right now, I'd recommend the former due to something currently going on that only allows sysops to edit pages in the User namespace. --Shiningpikablu252 19:01, 27 March 2008 (UTC)
You're not stopping. As soon as an administrator comes, I'm gonna have you blockedPokeManiac102 19:05, 28 March 2008 (UTC)
Three-day block. You were warned not to treat encyclopedic articles like a sandbox, and yet you continued making sandbox-style edits to articles such as Misty. Please keep sandbox-style edits to Bulbapedia:Sandbox and to your user namespace (which should, hopefully, be available to use by the time your block expires), and make only constructive edits to encyclopedic articles. --Shiningpikablu252 20:50, 28 March 2008 (UTC)

Talk Page Comments

Please don't remove talk page comments or alter the wording of someone else's comment without good reason. You don't want to end up like Big Johnno, who ended up blocked for getting into an edit war with Fabu-Vinny over the removal of talk page comments, and you don't want to end up like Shiny Noctowl, who ended up blocked for getting into an edit war with myself over non-G-rated words on talk pages. I could pretty damn well block you again right now if the situation warranted it (fortunately for you, it does not). --Shiningpikablu252 20:18, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

WTH?

Don't make useless pages like "Wolflame (Pokémon)" Your just ruining the wiki, if your going to just vandal here, leave.--Quick Man 12:35, 12 May 2008 (UTC)

Templates

Templates are made with {{ }}, not [[ ]]. Additionally, Template:An is the link template we use for anime characters, Template:A is for Pokémon abilities. For example, instead of [[a|Dawn]], which would link to a glitch Pokémon, you want {{an|Dawn}}, which would properly link to Dawn within the context of the anime. --Shiningpikablu252 13:59, 11 June 2008 (UTC)
