Welcome to Bulbapedia, Fossilgojira!

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 P, of course, is accessed easily by holding Shift and pressing the P key, while the é can be accessed using Alt + 130 or Alt + 0233 on a Windows computer, and Option + e, then e again on a Mac. Otherwise, you can 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 captial B (which is, again, accessed by holding Shift and pressing the B key). 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. You will have to register separately for it, as well. This is done so that both Bulbapedia and Bulbanews have access to the images uploaded.
  • If you want to make a page about a character you made up, please create it at User:Fossilgojira/(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! --ニョロトノ666 15:44, 11 May 2008 (UTC)

Edit warring

Please, do not edit war with other users, like you were doing on Mismagius (Pokémon). Especially when a sysop was first to revert your edit. Edit warring is not productive, and is not allowed. Instead of edit warring, please use the talk page of the article to discuss what has been removed. Thanks, - Kogoro | Talk to me - 15:35, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

You have been warned about this before by another administrator. This will be your last warning about this. Feel free to debate on the talk page, but do not re-add it the trivia. --RexRacer 23:06, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
You do realize that I am also an administrator?--RexRacer 02:42, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
I couldn't care any less. Fossilgojira 05:54, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
All you need to know is that when I make an edit, you don't revert it.--RexRacer 06:11, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
Riiiight, because you are Jesus Yamato and what ever you say or do is unquestionably the word of god and perfect in every conceivable way Fossilgojira 14:32, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
Really you should mind what you say to admins . I am not a good fan of them( not all of course,TROM is good and so is TTE) but really they are the boss.You dont want to be blocked I'm sure. --Prongs (TalkContributions) 14:39, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

Edit wars and compromise

Apparently there's been some problems. Don't edit war. To compromise, work on talk pages. Also, admins don't just throw around power for the hell of it. They generally know what they're doing. This happens to be one of those cases where they do, in fact, know what they're doing. If you disagree, as I said, work it out on talk pages, not by edit wars. Because, as other people have said, edit warring will get you banned. -- evkl (need to talk?) 06:14, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
