Welcome

Welcome to Bulbapedia, Sidnoea!

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:Sidnoea/(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! --20:09, 10 June 2008 (UTC)Emperor's Cookies

Thanks :P

Thanks for undoing my deletion >.> When I first looked at the History, i thought War had deleted a huge chunk. Turns out I was wrong :P QTR 23:17, 28 March 2009 (UTC)

And again I fail! I just noticed you didn't undo my deletion. QTR 23:36, 28 March 2009 (UTC)
Uh, I have no idea what you are talking about, so... your welcome? Sidnoea

Those redirects

We don't need 'em. Lazy redirects are not something that we encourage here. — THE TROM — 11:57, 27 April 2009 (UTC)

Sorry, I just figured some noob may be seeing all these common abbreviations, and do a quick search for them.Sidnoea 11:35, 28 April 2009 (UTC)

Liiiiiiink templates!

Because they're awesome. And they help out a lot. Hey, who knows, some future event ticket might be known as the Baton Pass. If they can make a Trainer class in Gen IV be named the same as a move we've had since Gen I, anything's possible. TTEchidna 19:42, 27 April 2009 (UTC)

No problem. I'm still learning the ropes here. Thanks. Sidnoea 11:37, 28 April 2009 (UTC)

Userspace edits

Please do not edit other users' userspace pages. This includes other users' subpages, such as User:Alpha Totodile/Sandbox. We have a Userspace policy that basically says that you can't edit another users' user page without his/her permission. Please read the policy for more information, or contact me if you have any more questions or concerns. Thanks, Kevin Y (talk) 13:35, 23 May 2009 (UTC)

(moved from talk page to keep the conversation central)
...it's a sandbox. You're obviously new, so I'll explain: sandboxes are for screwing around and doing whatever you want. Sidnoea 13:39, 23 May 2009 (UTC)
I'm quite aware of that. However, we typically aren't allowed to create subpages under other users' namespaces. If you wish to experiment with the sandbox, see Bulbapedia:Sandbox.
Also, if you wish to continue the discussion, please do so here so we can keep the conversation all in one place. Kevin Y (talk) 13:44, 23 May 2009 (UTC)
Also, please remember to sign your posts with four tildes (~~~~). Kevin Y (talk) 14:02, 23 May 2009 (UTC)
Whoops! Always forget those tildes...
The page was already made, as far as I'm aware. I clicked on a link, and put some stuff on it. Sidnoea 14:07, 23 May 2009 (UTC)
The edit summary began with "Created page with '.....'", which tells that this was the first edit made to the page. It did not exist before your edit. As it is now, I've placed a {{delete}} template on the page, and Kenji-girl deleted it, so you can't see it in your contributions any longer. Kevin Y (talk) 14:11, 23 May 2009 (UTC)
The only edits made to that page were yours and then Kevin Y putting the delete template on it. There is no indication whatsoever that it existed. Maybe AlphaTotodile linked it on his user page or something but you were the very first to create it. If you want to play around in a sandbox, make your own. User:Sidnoea/Sandbox. There ya go. --ケンジガール 14:15, 23 May 2009 (UTC)
Fair enough. I was unaware that I _created_ it. I thought I was just the first to put something on a blank page. Sidnoea 14:38, 23 May 2009 (UTC)

Rumble tables

I don't know how you're viewing them, but the white letters are the ranks the Pokémon do not appear in. The colors are to make the table more visually informative. I would prefer to exclude the white letters, but I don't know how to format the table without it looking terrible otherwise. If you have any idea, I'd love to get some help. I think it's possible that different browser settings might be to blame. Best! Jazzmoth 05:33, 16 January 2010 (UTC)

Shaking Spots / Dark Patches / whatever

Please, leave them as they are, as they are correct. Masatoshitalk 21:41, 11 April 2011 (UTC)

At the very least, make them all capital, no? Just seems like better formatting. Sidnoea 21:42, 11 April 2011 (UTC)
Having Them All In Capital Is Wrong, It Really Isn't Better. Not To Mention It Doesn't Look Professional. Masatoshitalk 21:44, 11 April 2011 (UTC)
Well then what should the consistency be? I see it like 4 different ways on all the pages. Some were already all caps, some were lowercase, some have spots, some have patches... Sidnoea 21:46, 11 April 2011 (UTC)
Actually, scratch that. Kogoro has just checked the official names, and they go like this: Rustling Grass, Dust Cloud, Flying Pokémon's Shadow, and Rippling Water. Feel free to change them. I apologise for the mistake, you can undo my editings if you want. Masatoshitalk 21:57, 11 April 2011 (UTC)
Okay. Out of curiosity, do you know where these came from? I don't recall the manual or anything showing these names. Sidnoea 21:58, 11 April 2011 (UTC)
TPCi Guide for Black & White, page 28. Masatoshitalk 22:01, 11 April 2011 (UTC)
Awesome sauce. I'll go ahead and change 'em all. Sidnoea 22:02, 11 April 2011 (UTC)
Hi, me again. I got all the Grass, Water, and Dust fixed (holy crap were there a lot of them o_e), but what about the Dark Grass patches? I see Dark Grass, Dark Patches, Dark Spots... one even says Double Grass. And capitalization? Sidnoea 23:54, 11 April 2011 (UTC)
Masatoshi is unavailable to respond right now, so ill jump in and say that "Dark Grass" is the term. -- MAGNEDETH 01:01, 12 April 2011 (UTC)
Yes, sir. Sidnoea 01:39, 12 April 2011 (UTC)
