Welcome to Bulbapedia, Goldenpoke111!

As a new user, you may wish to learn a few things that will be useful in your editing:

  • For a basic overview of wiki code, see this page.
  • The manual of style is very important. Make sure to read it. It outlines all official policies of Bulbapedia.
  • The word Pokémon is spelled with a capital P and an accented é. The P, of course, is accessed easily by holding Shift and pressing the P key, while the é can be accessed using Alt + 130 or Alt + 0233 on a Windows computer, and Option + e, then e again on a Mac. Otherwise, you can click it in the character palette below the editbox.
  • The word Poké Ball is spelled as two words. The "Poké" part is identical to the four beginning letters in "Pokémon"; "Ball" is spelled with a captial B (which is, again, accessed by holding Shift and pressing the B key). The spelling "Pokéball" arises frequently, but is incorrect.
  • The word "you" and all forms of it should not be used on encyclopedic pages unless it is a quote from Pokémon media. Bulbapedia is an encyclopedia, not a walkthrough.
  • On talk pages, please sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).
  • The use of link templates is official policy. For an explanation on their use, see the page on shortlinks.
  • If you happen to spot a vandal in the recent changes that has not been dealt with, please see this page for how to deal with it.
  • A list of pages that are linked to, but have not been created, can be found at this page. A list of short articles that may require more information can be found here, while a list of articles that need improvement can be found here.
  • If you want to make a page about a character you made up, please create it at User:Goldenpoke111/(name), not merely (name). Bulbapedia's main namespace is reserved for actual, official Pokémon, items, characters, and locations. Also, please try to make sure that subpages are not categorized by templates used within.
  • A list of the admins that you can contact in case of a problem, can be found here.

Thank you, and have a good time editing here!--Theryguy512 16:57, 8 March 2008 (UTC)

Authorization Issue

I know that this is my own Talk page, but I don't know where I should ask it. I got on to try to edit my signature and have it conform to the new Signature policy, but when I tried to edit my page it said that "You do not have permission to do that, for the following reason: You do not have permission to edit pages in the User namespace. You can view and copy the source of this page". Why would it say this when I try to edit my own page? Goldenpoke111 22:53, 29 March 2008 (UTC)

Read the Messages from the editor on the Main Page. Tina δ 22:57, 29 March 2008 (UTC)
Thanks. I almost always go directly to the page I am interested in, and almost never look at the main page, so it's no wonder I didn't see it. Goldenpoke111 23:15, 29 March 2008 (UTC)

Your use of Template:User Wants Shiny

Your use of this template on your page - {{User Wants Shiny|493|...I can't choose just one|Normal}} - creates a wanted page where we don't want one, so I've removed it from your userpage. Please just use the name of a Pokémon and not a phrase - we don't want a page called "...I can't choose just one (Pokémon)", which is what that links to. If you have to have several, you can use the template several times, but keep it to one Pokémon per template. Cipher (Talk) 11:56, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

Ok, sorry! I was planning to remove all of the userboxes anyway. Goldenpoke111 15:13, 10 February 2009 (UTC)
