Welcome to Bulbapedia, Jaylaw!

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. 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

Instead of editing a page several times in a row, try using the preview button to make sure your edit looks the way you want it to. It's right next to the Save Page button. Please try it out, so as not to clog up the Recent Changes. Also, if you want to edit multiple sections of the page, make sure that you click "edit this page" at the top of the page rather than editing it by section. Thanks! --Berrenta (talk) 21:18, 24 August 2015 (UTC)

Ah, sorry! My bad. Was doing some tidying up - but I accidentally nuked all references to attacks because I still had media censorship turned on, so I've put all the words back in now. Excadrill loves his Iris, but he's a stubborn fellow so he holds grudges. Jaylaw (talk) 21:43, 24 August 2015 (UTC)

Talk page comments

Two things I need to alert you to, regarding your recent edit to Talk:Mimikyu (Pokémon):

  • Please, please, please don't edit other people's messages, including timestamps. I've noticed you've seemed to have a significant amount of trouble with this, so if you have some kind of software that's automatically doing this, please turn it off or refrain from editing talk pages.
  • Bulbapedia's talk pages are for improving the article. For merely discussing the subject of the page, please take those conversations to the forums or elsewhere on the Internet. They don't belong here.

Thanks, and happy editing! Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 17:24, 17 July 2016 (UTC)

Could you please answer how in the world it is that you, frankly, wreak such havoc as this and this? Tiddlywinks (talk) 21:51, 21 January 2017 (UTC)
Apologies, Tiddlywinks, it seems I had the child-safety filter turned on while posting. (and I thought I had figured that thing out properly) Said filter is Firefox-specific. Havoc was not the intent. Chrome is not childproofed. If you wish I correct the havoc I shall do so on Chrome. If you hate my guts for causing the problem I shall respectfully back away and leave the article alone.Jaylaw (talk)
I don't want anyone thinking I think anything like I "hate their guts". I was just hoping it wasn't something you'd mistakenly keep doing all the time.
I've already fixed the page. But in the future, just try to remember, I guess. (Tip: if you try clicking the "Show changes" button (next to "Show preview"), it should make it pretty obvious that something's been changed if you didn't mean to.) Tiddlywinks (talk) 22:47, 21 January 2017 (UTC)
