I noticed you have been editing the User: namespace a lot today. 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! --Ҝəυzø8 14:44, 8 March 2009 (UTC)

Hold on!

If you did not read your last warning, then please read it now. You have edited the User: namespace to much for now. Please do not edit your page any more for now. Thank you. ----freezingCOLD (page, talk) 15:42, 8 March 2009 (UTC)

Sorry, editing done for today

Ok, sorry about that, it's just I had already started something quite big, so I finished that and that will be all for today on my page. I had already read it though, just so you know.

Thank you to whoever modified my Gym leader Picture, I jsut couldn't get my head around it! One more thing. I have made an Epic Collection (TCG) page, but it is in need of help. Any help at all will be appreciated. Thanks!- unsigned comment from Ben10Joshua (talkcontribs)

Please sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~) so that everyone knows who put the comment there. Thanks! ----freezingCOLD (page, talk) 15:53, 8 March 2009 (UTC)

Your signature must reflect your username in some way, as per the Signature policy. Right now, it simply reads "[center][url=] [img][/img][/url]". Please change it. Also, you don't have to put your username after you sign...--freezingCOLD (page, talk) 16:25, 8 March 2009 (UTC)

OK, but what do i do to this ginomegelati thingy? Do I delete it? If I tell you what I want my signiture to say, could you possibly make it for me? You don't have to, but if you like you can... If thats a yes, I would like oit to say "Ben Tennyson" in a green colour. Could you make that, or even jsut tell me how to? Thanks! Ben10Joshua 16:54, 8 March 2009 (UTC)Ben10Joshua

No problem. Try '''[[User:Ben10Joshua|<font color="green">Ben Tennyson</font>]]'''. It should come out as Ben Tennyson. Copy pasta the cod into the signature thing in you preferences, check the raw signatures box, and click "save preferences".--freezingCOLD (page, talk) 17:00, 8 March 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for that! I don't know what the genometgr whatever it was, was doign there... oh well. Thanks a lot! EDIT: wait, now I don't have a signature...Maybe this will help...Ben Tennyson 17:14, 8 March 2009 (UTC)

Signatures aren't meant to be like forum signatures. You want that, go to the forums. But here on a wiki, text only please. TTEchidna 17:19, 8 March 2009 (UTC)

I'm confused now, which part of my signature was like a forum one? Should I put that 'talk' thing at the end?Ben Tennyson 17:25, 8 March 2009 (UTC)

What i want to know is, what did you mean by "I don't have a signature"? Also, the talk link is recommended, but not mandatory.--freezingCOLD (page, talk) 17:27, 8 March 2009 (UTC)

I think I just got confused with forums and wikis. In forums, you don't have a signature at first, but in wiki's you have to edit it. I think it was just that confusion that led me into saying "I dont have a signature". Also, how do I get the 'talk' bit in and make it smaller? It looks even harder than the actual signature itself! Or is that part of the signature???... Oh man!Ben Tennyson 17:41, 8 March 2009 (UTC)

It's part of the signature. '''[[User:Ben10Joshua|<font color="green">Ben Tennyson</font>]]''' ''<small>([[User talk:Ben10Joshua|<font color="green">talk</font>]])</small>'' will come out as Ben Tennyson (talk)--freezingCOLD (page, talk) 17:45, 8 March 2009 (UTC)

Cool! Thanks for that, you're a good friend! I should vote you in for some sort of monthly award! Thanks!!!Ben Tennyson' (talk) 17:56, 8 March 2009 (UTC) Only one problem... the 'talk' isn't hyperlinked. How do I do that?Ben Tennyson' (talk) 17:57, 8 March 2009 (UTC)

It's linked, but since this is the page it's linked to, it seems as if it isn't linked.--freezingCOLD (page, talk) 18:00, 8 March 2009 (UTC)

Good point! I didn't think of that! You sure there are no awards i can vote you into?Ben Tennyson' (talk) 18:16, 8 March 2009 (UTC)

No, it's alright, I'm happy to help. However, you night want to go make some mainspace contribs now...--freezingCOLD (page, talk) 18:17, 8 March 2009 (UTC)

Whats a Mainspace contribution? Is that something to do with the actual bulbapedia site? I think I have kind of done that... I created the Epic Collection (TCG) page. Does that count? I did it today. It's not much, but still...Ben Tennyson' (talk) 19:01, 8 March 2009 (UTC)

A Mainspace contribtion is an edit to any page that does not have a suffix in front of it. (Example: Not Template:, Bulbapedia:, User:, Talk:, etc.) --Theryguy512 19:05, 8 March 2009 (UTC)
As in, yes Epic Collection is in fact as mainspace contrib. But one's not enough. Take it from the guy who has more than 20,000. Also, when you make them, categorize them.
And by "forum signature", I mean "[center][url=] [img][/img][/url]". Those are forum parser tags, and they don't work at all on a wiki. Not that images are allowed in signatures here anyway. Just text. TTEchidna 19:14, 8 March 2009 (UTC)

Ok, thanks for telling me. The reason why I was confused is because I didn't put it there! Anyway, The Epic Collection I created was from that category with pages that need to be written. I'm looking at them at a daily basis now, so if one comes up that I can do, I'll try to make it. Also, Theryguy, you put "any page that does not have a suffix in front of it", and then said "Example: Not Template, etc." How can "Template" not be a page that doesn't have a suffix in front of it? Or did you mean something else? Sorry if I don't seem to be getting this much!Ben Tennyson (talk) 20:35, 8 March 2009 (UTC)

Okay, well let's say a page is called Template:Example. If you editted that page, it would not count as an edit, due to the fact that there is a suffix (Template:) before the page name. --Theryguy512 20:39, 8 March 2009 (UTC)
? OK, what I think Ryguy means is that it wouldn't count as a mainspace edit, right?--freezingCOLD (page, talk) 20:48, 8 March 2009 (UTC)
Yes. would not = wouldn't. --Theryguy512 20:52, 8 March 2009 (UTC)
Ok... I'm just gonna go away on holiday while you two figure this out...Ben Tennyson (talk) 21:14, 8 March 2009 (UTC)
How was your holiday??? Did Santa Claus and his Delibird get you any Presents??? --Theryguy512 21:19, 8 March 2009 (UTC)

Sorry guys, I have a cold...

Ahhh...I have a cold now... Man, I don't feel that well... Sorry for the bad response, it's just that Ilive in the UK, so I go to sleep in your midday or so (thats if your in america). I'm not sure I will be able to do much for now, I just feel sooooo weak...(This editing took 2 minutes)Ben Tennyson (talk) 17:41, 9 March 2009 (UTC) Now I might even have an ear infection... I'm going to the doctors today, so if I have an ear infection, then...bad luck! No more ♪♫♪ for me until my ear is better! I'll update this later... I feel quite bad still from that cold...––Ben Tennyson (talk) 14:34, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, unfortunatly I do have an ear infection. I'll be out of action for a while, so don't expect any conribs from me for a few days or so! Sorry guys, I'll update as soon as I can!~~–Ben Tennyson (talk) 17:55, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

Ah man, now I think I might have an infection in the other ear! Aaarrghh maan!–Ben Tennyson (talk) 15:21, 12 March 2009 (UTC)

Hey guys, I'm better now! I forgot to say, but i've been back at school for a week already, i suppose i've just been too busy to go on bulbapedia! Well, I'm ok now, so i feel like I could do a few contribs at the present moment, only i have about 5 minutes to do it... Well, that's the update for now. Cya later!-~-Ben Tennyson (talk) 21:11, 22 March 2009 (UTC)

A BIG question!!

May I put in a link to a website? It is for an "Ambassador Program" on the site. I am just getting assurance first. I don't want to do anything bad or against the rules. Thanks! Ben Tennyson 19:09, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

on your user page? fine. Elsewhere, no.User:DCM 19:22, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

Thanks! I just don't want to get into trouble for something I don't know about! Ben Tennyson 20:15, 23 April 2009 (UTC)
