Welcome to Bulbapedia, Ethan7!

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!

Your email regarding the page Stats

First of all, as stated on my user page, I prefer you contact me via email only if the discussion is not relevant to Bulbapedia. In the future, for Bulbapedia-related questions, please contact me on my talk page.

You wrote: I worsened the grammar, how? And who is Jamal? I did not recall seeing anyone named Jamal that edited the page. Is Jamal his real name? I guess it was easy to read what it said before, but how come you undid the whole thing? Like making Generation II a link or saying that Special was only in Generation I.

Sorry about the "Jamal" thing; I misread my watchlist. Akurochan was the person whose edits you undid; I accidentally thought it was PokemonMasterJamal3, who edited a different page I was watching at a similar time, so the edits were next to each other on my watchlist.

As for poor grammar: You changed "up to Generation II" to "on Generation I". Things are in generations, not on them. You added, after the clause about Special's balance issues, "so it was changed the same way as" the Attack and Defense stats, but Attack and Defense have never been changed, so you introduced a factual error there. You changed "strong with Special attacks but weak against them" so that it repeated the words "Special attacks", which is unnecessary; repeated words so close together sound terrible and should never be used unless absolutely necessary.

Given the size of the edit and the number of problems it introduced, it was easier to undo the whole thing, since there was no major improvement to any part of any sentence in your version. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 23:03, 22 November 2013 (UTC)

Today you removed Ariano's post twice and modified Solar Dragon's post, both of which are serious offenses. Don't do it again or you'll receive a block.--Den Zen 21:25, 17 December 2013 (UTC)
Sorry, maybe something happened when I was changing my signature. This seems a little confusing how it happened.----Ethan (Discussion) 21:45, 17 December 2013 (UTC)

Why did you welcome him?

He's an obvious vandal. You shouldn't welcome people like that. A staff member will see recent changes soon enough and block him. Vandals should not get welcomed, it might urge them to vandalise some more. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 19:20, 8 September 2014 (UTC)
