Welcome to Bulbapedia, Pringles!

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!

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 Changes button... Please try it out, so as not to clog up the Recent Changes. Thanks! --ForceFire 03:11, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

Userspace and link templates

Hey, I just wanted to let you know that you're only allowed to edit your userspace a maximum of three times a day, no matter how many edits you've made. You've made five edits to yours. Please hold off on editing your userspace until tomorrow. Also, make sure to link to pages properly by using link templates. So rather than [[Bouffalant]], please use {{p|Bouffalant}} I've sent you an entire list of link templates, and how they work. Be sure to use them. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 03:40, 29 March 2012 (UTC)

When linking to a Pokemon Adventures character's article, please use {{Adv|Name}}, please. Ataro 04:18, 5 May 2012 (UTC)
Ok. Sorry. Pringles♂ 04:19, 5 May 2012 (UTC)

You still don't use link templates. You should write {{p|Dragonite}}, not [[Dragonite (Pokémon)|Dragonite]].--Den Zen 09:11, 2 June 2012 (UTC)

But I thought it's okay to use 'em that way, it says not to use them as "laziness templates". -- Pringles 22:43, 2 June 2012 (UTC)

Sorry

Ok, so you know how you can only edit your userpage 3 times a day, with at least 4 mainspace edits? I did my mainspace edits, then the day changed while I was editing my userspace. Does it matter if the Bulbapedia day changes halfway thru mine? Pringles 00:34, 10 April 2012 (UTC)

Japanese Titles

The translated Japanese titles are direct translations from the Japanese title, meaning some characters will be in Japanese (Ash --> Satoshi) (Cilan --> Dento). Please keep them that way as they are the accurate translations. Thanks. --Pokemaster97 00:39, 10 April 2012 (UTC)

Oh. Sorry, I'm new at this. Pringles 00:39, 10 April 2012 (UTC)

Hey Pringles

Nice username, BTW, I love the chips. My name is JediknightDTV, but you can call me Jedi for short, most people on here do. Anyways, I saw your post on Archaic's talkpage (BTW, I do not recommend bugging the owner of Bulbapedia for stuff like that, try an active Admin or Junior Admin instead). I would recommend adding __NOTOC__ and/or __NOEDITSECTION__ to the coding of the page (usually at the top somewhere). The first one removes the Table of Contents, the second one removes the little blue "Edit" links on the right side of each section. That should fix your problem. Cheers. --ジェダイの騎士デジタルテレビ 01:13, 10 April 2012 (UTC)

Thanks a ton. That was really annoying me. Pringles 19:45, 10 April 2012 (UTC)
In response to what you wrote on my page (This is bad wiki-etiquette, so I normally would reply to you there, but to me, it kinda makes just as much sense, if not more to respond here): I have no clue as to why it is not working anymore. Your page is a little weird because of more than just that: all of the menu choices that would normally be right under the Bulbapedia logo on the left hand side of the page (navigation, search, bulbagarden, toolbox) are way down at the bottom of the page on my screen (it could be just me). I would recommend talking to someone who knows more about wiki-coding than I do. I would start with a Junior Admin (any active one will do), and move up the Staff list from there, until you find someone that can help you. Good luck. --ジェダイの騎士デジタルテレビ 00:47, 19 April 2012 (UTC)
The problem here is that you didn't close (put in |}) the last bit of you infobox. That made your page look weird. I've fixed it for you.--ForceFire 02:07, 19 April 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, the search and stuff is messed up for me too. Thanks yall. Pringles 17:35, 19 April 2012 (UTC)

Suwama

Please don't create pages for characters that are yet to appear in the anime. If you want to create an article for a future character, please do so in your userspace. Also, we have someone else doing an article for Suwama.--ForceFire 03:49, 27 April 2012 (UTC)

Sorry. :3 Pringles 03:53, 27 April 2012 (UTC)

Email response

Sure, you can send what you want to feature in an email. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 06:02, 27 April 2012 (UTC)

Ok. Pringles 02:14, 28 April 2012 (UTC)

Redirects

Please, stop. We don't need redirects for any languages other than Japanese and English. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 22:51, 8 May 2012 (UTC) Ok. Sorry. プリングルズ/品客薯片/ప్రింగిల్స్ 22:52, 8 May 2012 (UTC)

Steady on

Yes it appears to be true. But don't add anything into the articles until confirmation (preferably until the game is released).--ForceFire 03:46, 12 May 2012 (UTC)

Ok......プリングルズ/品客薯片/ప్రింగిల్స్ 03:48, 12 May 2012 (UTC)
We know. Stop posting these on talk pages. When someone adds them we'll warn them.--ForceFire 03:50, 12 May 2012 (UTC)

BeastlyBlackOps

It's recently come to my attention that this user shares an IP with you. It's against Bulbapedia policy for one person to have multiple accounts, so could you explaining why this user shares your IP? Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 04:39, 15 May 2012 (UTC)

He's my brother. We share a computer, and he really wanted to make an account. I guess that's why. --Pringles 01:48, 16 May 2012 (UTC)
Alright, I figured that was the reason. Thanks for letting us know. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 01:49, 16 May 2012 (UTC)
You're welcome. ~Pringles 01:25, 17 May 2012 (UTC)

Signature

As per the Signature policy, your signature must reflect your username in some way. So I suggest you to change it ASAP. Pokégeek 11:23, 1 June 2012 (UTC)

Done. Though, Pringles are potato chips... -- Pringles 20:35, 1 June 2012 (UTC)

Sticker Book page

I noticed with the Victini Sticker Book page that all the Pokémon names are hidden and the such. Is this intentional or accidental? Also, I have a copy of this, do you need help finishing up listing all the stickers in the book? Frozen Fennec 23:15, 19 June 2012 (UTC)

Ok. I have no idea of how to do the lists (show/hides, I created the page and just thought it would turn out really long) and I'm wondering if we have to put every single Pokémon that appears, name for name, or if we can just put "Contains all Unova Pokémon from Victini to Kyurem at least twice." I'd really appreciate it if you make a list, I really don't have time, though I bought two copies of the book. Also, it's not really in my power as to what you do. -- Pringles 23:19, 19 June 2012 (UTC)
Could actually remove the coding from each section or I can do it in a bit. Don't seen much of a reason to put them in a table form actually. Just displaying them in each section would be rather fine. :) However if the page is stretched to be very long then I might try to put them into a table format. Frozen Fennec 23:23, 19 June 2012 (UTC)
Do whatever you want. It does not matter to me. -- Pringles 23:24, 19 June 2012 (UTC)

Your favorite song

...is creating a link on the wanted pages. Please fix it. --Abcboy (talk) 21:05, 3 November 2012 (UTC)
