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!

Shamouti prophecy

Hello, I removed the Shamouti prophecy on the grounds that it's actually not a song and should therefore not be on the themes page. You can still add the info from the history page to your user page if you'd like. --Raltseye prata med mej 23:39, 26 February 2017 (UTC)

I get your point, but if that's the case, why are the Team Rocket mottos permitted? They are no more of songs than the Shamouti prophecy is. The 'lyrics' are clearly spoken, and as far as I know, they're not spoken-word songs, either, which would disqualify them from being songs. As I see it, the Team Rocket mottos are technically poems, which the Shamouti prophecy is as well, so what makes those qualified to be on the page when the Shamouti prophecy isn't allowed?

Didn't think about that, anyway they will be removed since they are not songs and perhaps listed in the my user space (or yours if you like) since I consider them notable enough for their own list. What do you think about that? --Raltseye prata med mej 21:39, 27 February 2017 (UTC)
That works for me, and I can have the Danish mottos in my user space, even though I would have preferred if they were to be found somewhere on the main wiki itself, but as it is right now, I see that they don't really fit anywhere else. Ztash (talk) 21:52, 27 February 2017 (UTC)
I have moved them into my user space for the time being, you are free to move it to your user space if you like. --Raltseye prata med mej 22:10, 27 February 2017 (UTC)

Userspace edit limit

I noticed you've been making a lot of edits to the userspace, and I thought I'd remind you that Bulbapedia policy states that you are not allowed to make more than three edits in the User: namespace per day. Considering the edits you're making are to a page that looks like it's intended to be mainspaced, you might be given an exception for that page (you'd have to talk to an admin about that though), but I thought I should tell you anyway.

And yes, there is a standard warning template for this, but you haven't technically made more than three edits today by server time, and the template specifically mentions "today", so it doesn't really quite work for this situation. --Felthry (talk) 02:55, 2 March 2017 (UTC)

In fact, I should link the official policy on this here. --Felthry (talk) 02:57, 2 March 2017 (UTC)
I had forgotten about that as I was concerned about not losing any progress due to my internet crashing quite often, it seems. But thanks for the heads up, I'll make sure to stay within the limit. Ztash (talk) 03:52, 2 March 2017 (UTC)
As I mentioned, perhaps try to get an exception for this page? It seems like a potentially mainspaceable page, so if you put the {{mainspace}} template on it and talk to an admin (specifically an editorial board member, I believe), it should be okay to make more than three edits per day--but do note that just notifying the admin is not enough, you have to get their approval. --Felthry (talk) 03:59, 2 March 2017 (UTC)
