Welcome to Bulbapedia, JLomb!

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!

The Preview Button.

The preview button allows you to view your edit before submitting it. This way, you can make any necessary changes you notice without flooding the recent changes by editing the same page eight times. Thanks AquaMaster 19:40, 23 November 2011 (UTC)

Hi, please, use the preview button so you don't have to edit the page so many times and not clog the RC up. It's right next to the Save page button. Masatoshitalk 04:25, 3 February 2012 (UTC)
New reminder to use the preview button, if you're editing as you play, I'd suggest you play that part first, write it down in a .txt file or something, and THEN edit the page, that way you can make substantial edits in one sit. Masatoshitalk 06:59, 18 February 2012 (UTC)

Userspace limits

Hi. I noticed you have been editing the User: namespace a lot recently. Please don't do it any more, though. Bulbapedia's Userspace policy restricts the amount you can edit your userpage: no more than three edits per day and make sure you contribute to our mainspace more than your userspace. This policy was instated to promote people helping out in the mainspace, and also to control strain on our server. Bulbapedia is an encyclopedia, after all, so help us out by contributing to some articles before coming back to your personal userpage. The more often you edit in the mainspace, the more you will be allowed to edit your userpage. Thanks! --Masatoshitalk 23:20, 17 February 2012 (UTC)
