Welcome to Bulbapedia, Owlwinds!

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.
  • 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).
  • If you want to make a page about a character you made up, please create it at User:Owlwinds/(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!PokeManiac102 22:28, 8 April 2008 (UTC)

Welcome to my talk page.

Whatever.Go wild.Talk about me.Meep.--Owlwinds 19:22, 28 August 2008 (UTC)


I see you're new here, and first of, welcome to Bulbapedia. Now for my point: Signatures with images are no longer allowed on Bulbapedia, it puts too much unnecessary load on the server. If you could change your signature to avoid the use of images that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! ←{Berrymaster|Talk|Contrib}→ 19:30, 28 August 2008 (UTC)

Fake Pokémon!

I noticed you have been editing the User: namespace a lot recently. You may not be aware of this, but Bulbapedia has a Userspace policy that asks users to try and minimize the number of userspace edits they make in a short period of time. Instead of making multiple edits, why not use the Preview button (Alt + Shift + P) located right next to the edit button to look at your page and see how it is coming? That way, your page can look great while staying within the required amount of edits. Instead of editing the userspace, as a wiki, we encourage users to edit the mainspace. So, if you edit the mainspace more often, you will be allowed to edit the userspace more. Thanks! ----Toxic ICE (User:Cold)(page, talk) 04:08, 4 October 2009 (UTC)

Replying to "hi"

So sorry about that, but I have to do it this way because my PSP is bunk and I probably will lose my change if I hit preview instead of save because my system freezes and stops alot. Noctowlwinds 04:27, 4 October 2009 (UTC) P.S. Sorry, this thing won't work properly.

Then get a computer. Alpha CuboneKing 04:31, 4 October 2009 (UTC)
You don't have to make a new section just to reply to another one...--Toxic ICE (User:Cold)(page, talk) 04:34, 4 October 2009 (UTC)

Ugh, ...

I do have a computer, I'm just not allowed to use Bulbapedia on it. Also, sorry about constantly making a new section, my PSP erases stuff. Noctowlwinds 04:38, 4 October 2009 (UTC)

Why aren't you allowed to use Bulbapedia on it? Alpha CuboneKing 04:40, 4 October 2009 (UTC)
