Link templates!!!

Please use link templates whenever possible. For a complete list of link templates, please see : Bulbapedia:List of link templates. Thank you. --Theryguy512 19:43, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

This is your second warning. The use of link templates is an official policy. Linking Eevee like [[Eevee]] links to a disambiguation page Eevee. You have to link it as {{p|Eevee}} so that it links to Eevee (Pokémon).--Sher-e-Bengal- 18:51, 4 March 2009 (UTC)


I noticed you have been editing the User: namespace a lot recently. You may not be aware of this, but Bulbapedia has a Userspace policy that asks users to try and minimize the number of userspace edits they make in a short period of time. Instead of making multiple edits, why not use the Preview button (Alt + Shift + P) located right next to the edit button to look at your page and see how it is coming? That way, your page can look great while staying within the required amount of edits. Instead of editing the userspace, as a wiki, we encourage users to edit the mainspace. So, if you edit the mainspace more often, you will be allowed to edit the userspace more. Thanks! --Alpha CuboneKing 23:08, 16 September 2009 (UTC)

I have been using the Preview button; I was editing each section individually to have less code on the screen, making it easier to find things. I'll keep that in mind!--JacobCrystal 23:19, 16 September 2009 (UTC)
Just do some edits to the mainspace, alright? Alpha CuboneKing 23:21, 16 September 2009 (UTC)
Regardless of whether you're previewing or not, it's time to stop. Please read the userspace policy. This explains that the userspace was locked once upon a time because everyone kept editing their userpages and neglected the actual articles. Please take a short break on your page for now and go help clean up Bulbapedia. You can finish it off another day. —darklordtrom 23:23, 16 September 2009 (UTC)

The Preview Button

Instead of editing a page several times in a row, try using the preview button to make sure your edit looks the way you want it to. It's right next to the Save Page button. Please try it out, so as not to clog up the Recent Changes. Thanks! ----Pokemaster97 20:12, 12 January 2014 (UTC)

Sorry, it was more of an issue of not realizing that Misty's Togetic wasn't to be counted as Fairy-type as that note was only in the header and I started from the bottom up, so I had to go back and fix all of my incorrect edits... JacobCrystal (talk) 20:16, 12 January 2014 (UTC)
