Linking to categories

You can link to Categories without putting the page into the category by putting a colon before "Category". Example: [[:Category:______]] And just so it's up there, you can also link to files by using [[:a:File:____.___]] Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 02:53, 21 October 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, I should have know that before I linked it, but did not. I will admit that I did find it on Wikicode#Linking, but at that time I had already made my second edit in a row. (I follow a rule of two so that I do not get an edit warning, unless an edit has somehow badly broken something.) In any case, thank you for letting me know about that since it will help me to remember in the future. (Off topic) Sorry if I am butting into your talk with Mikoro. I wanted to let them know that they can find articles that need to be improved instead of complaining about the loss of userspace privileges since I think that they can improve. One other thing I wanted to ask you was why is Mikoro's timestamp off by a few hours? It is listed as UTC time, but is EST instead. Could you look into it? In any case, thank you for reading this. --Super goku (talk) 03:58, 21 October 2012 (UTC)


Super goku, I have looked at the list you sent me on my talk page and I have fixed Exploud and Clear!'s synopsis. For future edits I make, I will notify you. Are you an administrator? Do you have rights to reinstate someone's userspace rights? Mikoro 9:49, 23 October 12 (UTC)

Hello, Mikoro. I would like to say that you do not need to notify me of any changes that you make since if I wanted to look I could just use Special:Contributions/Mikoro. If you would like to you can do it to me or anyone else on the wiki by placing the name of the user in the url. In addition, the recent changes page will list a link to it it between the link to the user's talk page and the edit summary of a user who makes an edit.* As for the second question, I will say that I am not an administrator or any position on the staff. If you would like to find out who is on staff, then I would suggest you head to the Staff page. Several pages on the Navigation bar to the left include a link to the staff page if you would like to find it later. To be a bit informal, I would like to point out that the only page I have on the Userspace is a personal sandbox. Otherwise, I have nothing in the userspace which is why the username in my signature is red. In my opinion, the only purpose for the userspace is for people to post some infomation on themselves and to improve articles. However, that is not the only use and other users will have differing opinions as to the Userspace. So then, let me ask you a question or two that you can choose to answer or not. What is it that you want to create on the Userspace and why do you want to do so? I am a curious person and would like to understand your reasons. --Super goku (talk) 00:47, 24 October 2012 (UTC)
I want to create my userpage plus a ton of other pages that will be linked on my userpage. I want to do this because I have just experienced all the other awesome pages that people have, and I want one. But because someone had to block my creating rights, I will not be able to do so until I prove myself "worthy of being a professional Bulbapedia contributor". And did you look at the new synopsis for Exploud and Clear!? Mikoro 9:00, 24 October 12 (UTC)
To start with I have seen the synopsis for AG066. I will say that it did look nice. Besides the two edits I would say that the only issues were minor such as links and a bit of grammar. (Note: You can edit the whole article by clicking on the edit button at the top of a page.) As for your userspace issue I would like you direct you to both the Bulbapedia {{bp|Policy} and especially the Userspace policy since those are the most important for your situtation. I would suggest reading those and editing the mainspace more than the talkspace. If you would like to I would suggest maybe looking at this page since most of the pages list there have an incomplete synopsis. Hopefully, this will help you out. --Super goku (talk) 19:04, 24 October 2012 (UTC)

Hey. I'm not really sure how editting the coloumns works, but at the moment there is false information up there regarding Gen V. I know you wanted to hold off removing it completely because a portion of it also had to do with Gen 4, which there is no research on. Could you at least remove all mention of Gen V regarding the 1 - (1-p) * 0.1 thing from that page. So that readers aren't misconstrued into believing something that isn't true.
