Welcome to Bulbapedia, Maddiesapphire!

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!

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 Changes button... Please try it out, so as not to clog up the Recent Changes. Thanks! ----Pokemaster97 01:30, 8 June 2012 (UTC)

Berries on Diet

Did you talk to a staff member before putting the berry info on all of the pages? Such a lengthy addition to the species pages is akin to a project and needs to be approved by staff first. -- MAGNEDETH 04:48, 18 July 2012 (UTC)

I didn't; I assumed it wouldn't be a problem, but if it is feel free to revert the changes.--Maddiesapphire (talk) 04:55, 18 July 2012 (UTC)
Your heart is in the right place, but the problem is that if a Pokemon is holding a berry, that doesn't mean they like it. In theory, if they DIDN'T eat it, then perhaps they don't like it. We have to look at all options, and it just isn't a sure thing. Just make sure that if you have an idea that would spread across all species pages, you check with an admin first. -- MAGNEDETH 05:02, 18 July 2012 (UTC)
Alright; I am still fairly new to the wiki so thanks for the tip, I'll ask next time. --Maddiesapphire (talk) 05:03, 18 July 2012 (UTC)
