May I enter with Crevice cave, And if I can, what is a diff? Gliscorguy54 15:40, 5 December 2010 (UTC)

Nevermind, I found it. Gliscorguy54 15:45, 5 December 2010 (UTC)

Can we list multiple pages, or only one? - The Pokémon Master 18:16, 5 December 2010 (UTC)

Guys, this page is for SUBMITING your FINISHED entry. Don't just add your names here! There are no signups. Jellotalk 18:31, 5 December 2010 (UTC)

Are we allowed more than one entry?

I have entered one, but I feel I need more backup Diamond Lanturn CodeName: 05308 21:26, 5 December 2010 (UTC)

You are allowed more than one entry, but you may only reserve one page at a time. Werdnae (talk) 21:41, 5 December 2010 (UTC)

Thank you Diamond Lanturn CodeName: 05308 21:42, 5 December 2010 (UTC)


Should I note if I don't want to accept the prize? It's Turtwig A! My talk or wiki edits 02:29, 6 December 2010 (UTC)

Why wouldn't you want the prize!?! MaverickNate 02:35, 6 December 2010 (UTC)
Don't want to reveal my address nor my city. It's Turtwig A! My talk or wiki edits 02:37, 6 December 2010 (UTC)
If you don't want to accept the prize, then don't enter. You're welcome to continue improving the wiki, but don't put your name on the entrants page. —darklordtrom 06:45, 6 December 2010 (UTC)

Editing before signing up

If I have made a few edits within a day before sighnng up for my selected page will the edits still be counted?--EpicShadow 17:59, 17 December 2010 (UTC)

They will be considered, yes. MaverickNate 20:13, 17 December 2010 (UTC)
Remember this is an entry page not a sign-up page. You should only put a page on here once you have finished with it. That said, your diff can include any edits you made to the article since the competition started. Werdnae (talk) 00:40, 18 December 2010 (UTC)
In that case I will remove it for now.--EpicShadow 04:27, 18 December 2010 (UTC)

Hold on...

There is a tt that says my intermediate edit was formatting. I started the entire page, and was not aware of how to do a "diff" for that. I want to make sure that my entry is properly understood: I created (and formatted and edited) the page. Arrogios 14:23, 24 January 2011 (UTC)

Yes, it was. That's why there is a C there - to denote you created the page. The tt is only associated with the I, which means that someone else's edit is included in the diff. Not something that would disqualify you, but something that the judges may wish to be aware of. The notes mean you created the page, and that someone else made a small edit before you were finished, which was limited to slight formatting of a small bit of the page. Werdnae (talk) 19:18, 24 January 2011 (UTC)
Don't know if it's important but my Poison (status ailment) page that I made doesn't have a C, or does the edit still need to be looked at? Pikiwyn talk 19:37, 24 January 2011 (UTC)
No, it's okay. The judging is over. We're waiting on Archaic to announce all the winners at once. —darklordtrom 19:45, 24 January 2011 (UTC)
There's also no need for a C if it was 'created' from a redirect. The C is just there because you can't include the creation of a page in the diff. When it is changed to a real page from a redirect, you can, so it doesn't need any special markings. Werdnae (talk) 19:59, 24 January 2011 (UTC)
