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! ---- evkl (need to talk?) 16:21, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

User page edits

Could you not edit your userpage so much? It stresses the server. To avoid multiple edits, please use the preview button. I request that you refrain from editing your page anymore and make some more edits to the mainspace. Thank you. --ケンジガール 05:28, 29 July 2009 (UTC)


You only need one account. Creating additional accounts and utilizng them is called sockpuppeting, and it's highly frowned upon here. If you're caught using a sockpuppet, it's punishable by an infinite-length block of the sockpuppet, and the main account can be blocked as well. I'm letting your main account off with a warning this time, but if I catch you sockpuppeting again, expect the main account to get a short block as well. --Shiningpikablu252 19:58, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

Hi, sorry I didn't mean to edit my account under Twilightdragon21. I created this account for my girlfriend and I was helping her create her page and I wanted to copy and paste the one section I made for her into mine but I forgot to sign back into my account before I did. I did not make this second account for my own use but for my girlfriend.


There is an easier way to welcome. All you have to do is put "{{SUBST:Welcome}}". It automatically puts your signature and the user's name. Turtwig A (talk | contribs) 00:54, 14 January 2010 (UTC)

Lol ok I thought there might be, thanks Donavadam 01:04, 14 January 2010 (UTC)


When making redirects, please make the Pokémon's name capital, as they are proper nouns. Turtwig A (talk | contribs) 01:32, 18 January 2010 (UTC)

Oh jeez sorry about that will do! :) Donavadam 01:33, 18 January 2010 (UTC)

some of them dont have the code on the page how do you get them? sorry im confusedLavendertowngymleader 20:18, 29 January 2010 (UTC)

All you have to do is copy the Usertag name and then put {{ }} around it, for example lets say you wanted you put User Platinum and put {{ }} around it which results in the User Tag in your profile. Donavadam 20:26, 29 January 2010 (UTC)
