Welcome to Bulbapedia, Nyktos!

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.
  • Keep an eye on the Messages from the Editor on the main page, to stay informed on current events on Bulbapedia.
  • The word Pokémon is spelled with a capital P and an accented é. The é can be accessed by holding Alt and typing either 130 or 0233 on a Windows computer, and by using Option + e, then e again on a Mac. Otherwise, you can easily 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 capital B. 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 or other 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.
  • For a future capture, release, trade, or evolution of a Pokémon belonging to a main character of the anime, please do not create or move the page to reflect your suspicions, even if they are shared by many others. Policy here is to wait until the episode in which the event happens takes place is aired, unless there is substantial evidence for the suspicion (such as Brock's Happiny being held in his arms).
  • Image uploading is done on Bulbagarden Archives, a separate wiki accessible through the toolbox in the sidebar. This is done so that both Bulbapedia and Bulbanews have access to the images uploaded. To activate your account at the Archives and Bulbanews, please login there using the same username and password you use here on Bulbapedia.
  • If you want to make a page about a character you made up, please create it at User:Nyktos/(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.
  • Having said this, please make sure that you do contribute adequately to the main namespace. Bulbapedia is not MySpace or Facebook.
  • 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! --Boywonder01 01:38, 21 June 2008 (UTC)

Usertag box

It's simple. Just put <div class="userbox"> and </div> on top and bottom of your tags. The box will form around them and align to the right. If you want background and border colors, that's more complicated, but not much; just add style="background:#{{{bg color}}}; border: 1px solid #{{{border color}}};" in the opening tag, replacing the {{{}}}s with the hexadecimal codes for the colors you want. --Martonimos((Argh|Blargh)) 23:05, 2 August 2008 (UTC)

Thanks. :) Nyktos 23:08, 2 August 2008 (UTC)

Not Necessary

Some people don't know what deoxyribonucleic acid is. Even though I noticed it before I read it, not everyone would. Especially little kids who often read this site. Dialgarules 17:56, 1 November 2008 (UTC)

From the line above it: "Deoxys's first three forms, Defense, Normal, and Attack have the initials D.N.A., the initials of deoxyribonucleic acid, which Deoxys is named and based after." Nyktos 17:59, 1 November 2008 (UTC)
Well, OK. I was just trying to remind you that some people couldn't figure that out. I know you're smart enough to, and I'm not calling you stupid. But do you really expect some five-year-old Pokémon fan to figure that out? Dialgarules 18:02, 1 November 2008 (UTC)
I'd expect that upon seeing the word deoxyribonucleic acid, said little kid's reaction would likely be "that sounds like Deoxys!" The point is, it's not hard to notice two words have the same first five letters, even if you can't read. Nyktos 18:22, 1 November 2008 (UTC)
OK, I'm sorry. But I think it's still worth mentioning. Let's just quit arguing. Gyaaah... Dialgarules 18:23, 1 November 2008 (UTC)
Of course it's worth mentioning. It's just that it's already mentioned in two other places. Nyktos 18:24, 1 November 2008 (UTC)
Yay, we finally agree! Tell me if you agree on another thing: this indenting is making the text really cramped. Dialgarules 18:29, 1 November 2008 (UTC)
Yes, yes it is. :) Nyktos 18:29, 1 November 2008 (UTC)
Here, there's more room on my talk page. Dialgarules 18:34, 1 November 2008 (UTC)
