Don't remove comments, including your initial welcome message. This is for historical purposes and so Bulbapedia staff don't give repeated warnings about the same thing. When your page gets long enough, you may archive it by moving it to a new location. For example, [[User:Example]] would move his large talk page to "User talk:Example/Archive 1" (or a variant thereof).

===Archiving user talk pages===
 +
Instead of deleting any and all information on talk pages, you should archive your talk page by moving it to a new location. By simply copying and pasting the text, or by moving small sections at a time, it breaks the time line of the edit history.
 +
 
 +
An ideal location to move your talk page to is '''User:Username/Archive Number'''. So, if [[User:Example]] wanted to make his first archive, he would move his talk page to "User talk:Example/Archive 1". His second archive would be at "User talk:Example/Archive 2", and so on. Other variations on this somewhat bland naming style are allowed, for example: "User talk:Example/First archive".
