Welcome to Bulbapedia, Zekasaur!

Here are a few links to help you get started:

The Manual of Style, or MoS, outlines the format of all pages on Bulbapedia.

Our friendly team of staff are here to help! Talk to them if you have any questions or problems with Bulbapedia.

On talk pages, please sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~), or by using the "Your signature with a timestamp" (button_sig.png) button at the top of the edit window.

On Bulbapedia, the ability to edit personal userpages is a privilege. Per our userpage policy, this must be earned by first making constructive edits to the mainspace. Once you can, remember to keep userspace edits (edits to User:Zekasaur) to a minimum.

For a complete list of policies and editing advice, please see the Welcome Portal.
 Thank you, and have a good time editing here!

Multiple accounts

You've got two. You're only allowed one. Which one do you want to keep? —darklordtrom 09:04, 18 August 2010 (UTC)

I would like to keep Zekasaur.--Zekasaur 09:11, 28 August 2010 (UTC)
Cool, thanks. —darklordtrom 10:27, 23 August 2010 (UTC)

Zekasaur

The mainspace is not a place to add pages about yourself or fan-made Pokémon. Please make the page in your userspace such as User:Zekasaur/Zekasaur. Also, when an admin deletes a page do not remake it. Thanks, --CoolPikachu! 08:02, 21 August 2010 (UTC)

Preview Button

It's right next to the save page button. Please use it to check that the page is how you want it before you save, so you don't need to make multiple edits to the same page in a short time. Also, if you are just testing how things work, there is no need to save the page at all if you just use the preview button. Thanks. Werdnae (talk) 08:35, 21 August 2010 (UTC)

And another thing here to help you - ta da! Link templates! Instead to typing [[Pikachu (Pokémon)|Pikachu]], you can just type {{p|Pikachu}}. There's more over here. Enjoy yourself ;) たかはり 08:37, 21 August 2010 (UTC)
Seriously. Use the preview button. There is absolutely no need for you to save the page to test if your edit will work. Werdnae (talk) 09:02, 21 August 2010 (UTC)
Listen, please. Use the preview button. It's right next to the save button. You don't need to save the page to see how your edit looks. Also, Bulbapedia:Sandbox might be of use to you. Jellotalk 11:04, 21 August 2010 (UTC)

Questions for Administrators

I am trying to edit the pages Vaporeon and Glaceon but I cannot find any [edit] buttons. I have also checked other pages such as Eevee, Pikachu, Jolteon, and Pokémon Yellow Version and they are fine. Why can't I edit those two pages? Zekasaur 06:04, 5 September 2010 (UTC)

Both of those pages are protected, so no one except the Administrators can edit them. You'll have to wait until they become unprotected. たかはり 06:17, 5 September 2010 (UTC)
Alternatively, leave a message on the talk page of the relevant article. Werdnae (talk) 06:23, 5 September 2010 (UTC)

How do I post pictures from my computer? It is a picture of Vaporeon's generation V sprite (not fan-made). I have one of Glaceon (not fan-made), too.Zekasaur 06:46, 11 September 2010 (UTC)

Upload on Bulbagarden Archives. Follow the guide to make sure you do it right. —darklordtrom 06:57, 11 September 2010 (UTC)
Trom, I tried clicking on the link but it said I have to be in a certain group. Zekasaur 07:02, 11 September 2010 (UTC)
You'll need to sign in on the Archives. The account should be the same as your Bulbapedia one. Werdnae (talk) 07:11, 11 September 2010 (UTC)

Userspace limits

Hi. I noticed you have been editing the User: namespace a lot recently. Please don't do it any more, though. Bulbapedia's Userspace policy restricts the amount you can edit your userpage: no more than three edits per day. This policy was instated to prevent strain on our server, and also to promote people helping out in the mainspace. Bulbapedia is an encyclopedia, after all, so help us out by contributing to some articles before coming back to your personal userpage. The more often you edit in the mainspace, the more you will be allowed to edit your userpage. Thanks! ---- MAGNEDETH 03:04, 1 October 2010 (UTC)

{{Pokémon}}

Please don't put your Pokémon's nickname in the pokemon field. That'll put its nickname on the Wanted Pages, which we don't want. Instead, put its species in the pokemon field and its nickname in the nickname field.

For example, your Flygon:

pokemon=Flygon
nickname=Fly

It's that easy.--Cold (talk) 19:32, 3 October 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for doing it for me =) Zekasaur 03:50, 4 October 2010 (UTC)

Hi

I don't know if you've seen my userpage, but I specifically asked people not to take my design. If you could change or remove it, that would be appreciated. Jellotalk 01:36, 8 October 2010 (UTC)

If you think I took your design too much, have you seen User:6259? —♫Zekasaur♫ 03:59, 8 October 2010 (UTC)
P.S. I am working on it (I'm just going to change everything to Menu Sprites and then remove that other part with the Black and White boy sprite. —♫Zekasaur♫ 04:02, 8 October 2010 (UTC)
Well the point is the borders or what not, look similar to mines. I know people have had a bad habit of taking stuff from mines.

If it looks anything like this, then it needs to be removed. Kogoro has a template for users to use if you need something but can't code it yourself. Unfortunately for me, these things come as a surprise for me, I happened to see you in the recent changes and noticed that. I don't know how many other users have taken the same thing. But thanks for respecting my wishes. Jellotalk 04:11, 8 October 2010 (UTC)

Userspace privileges revoked

Hi Zekrom. You've breached our userspace policy by making more than the allotted three edits per day for a couple of days despite the notice on your talk page from last week and the notice at the top of every page of the site. If you take care to read the policy, you'll also see that taking personal content without permission is also against our guidelines. As such, I have no choice but to revoke your editing abilities for the userspace. Remember that Bulbapedia considers these editing powers a privilege; now you have to earn them back. —darklordtrom 11:02, 8 October 2010 (UTC)

Understood. What exactly do you mean by 'earn'? —♫Zekasaur♫ 05:37, 9 October 2010 (UTC)
He means that you have to make multiple decent edits to the mainspace. たかはり 05:47, 9 October 2010 (UTC)
What pages are recommended to edit and how many? So far, I have edited
Keep going. I'll let you know when you've met the criteria. Best be patient though. —darklordtrom 09:08, 9 October 2010 (UTC)
What are some recommended pages to edit/start?—♫Zekasaur♫ 11:30, 22 October 2010 (UTC)
Articles needing improvement and Articles needing more information might be a start. —darklordtrom 05:33, 23 October 2010 (UTC)

Talk pages

Make sure to check the dates when you reply to a comment on a talk page. Sometimes, people's questions will have become obsolete because more information has been revealed (such as here). In these cases, you don't need to reply to them. —darklordtrom 07:44, 24 October 2010 (UTC)

Images in signatures

Hi Zekasaur. As per the signature policy, Bulbapedians aren't allowed to have images in their signatures. I'm going to have to ask you to amend your signature. Sorry and thanks in advance. —darklordtrom 06:37, 6 November 2010 (UTC)
