I noticed you have been editing the User: namespace a lot today. 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! --- Kogoro | Talk to me - 11:00, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

Hold on!

If you did not read your last warning, then please read it now. You have edited the User: namespace to much for now. Please do not edit your page any more for now. Thank you. --- Kogoro | Talk to me - 11:07, 27 February 2009 (UTC)


Do not edit the User: namespace any more. In the past, we were not allowed to edit our pages at all because of users over-editing their pages. If you edit your page any more without making some edits to the mainspace, then the privilege for you to edit it the userspace will be removed. --Sher-e-Bengal- 11:49, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

Hi there.

I got your emails. That's fine if you use my coding, I mostly got it from other users' pages as well and it's pretty easy stuff. Just make sure to actually change it to say stuff about you so people don't think you're me (although I'm sure you're working on that). As for my friend code, it's 3909 4002 2610 (Diamond). Although I'm not sure if I can get on WiFi over the school's network, I'd certainly be willing to try (and I'll be back home in April, so I know I can get on then). So what's this competition thing you emailed me about? Lucentas 21:00, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

   I am a friend in need .Pleaseeeee help me.
Do make some edits using my Username or you will lose this friend of yours for ever.

I am sending the password.



The reason you were warned because you kept editing the usespace, somethin frowned upon here, and since this is NOT MySpace, FaceBook, or a blog we would perfer if you edited the mainspace NOT the User Space. --☆Coolピカチュウ! 05:24, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

Sign your edits with ~~~~ or button_sig.png --☆Coolピカチュウ! 05:33, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
That and do not removed messages on talk pages and the preveiw button is like very easy to find.... the one next to SAVE PAGE--☆Coolピカチュウ! 07:07, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
No really listen to me please and SIGN YOUR COMMENTS! ~~~~ or button_sig.png --☆Coolピカチュウ! 07:14, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for finally listenin but sadly I'm not an admin and you did abuse the userspace even if it was anccident so you will have to wait a 1 week or so to get it back by an admin.--☆Coolピカチュウ! 07:21, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
Note: Magnedeth is not out to get you he just plays by the rules.--☆Coolピカチュウ! 08:07, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

You can't delete pages only an admin can--☆Coolピカチュウ! 08:44, 28 February 2009 (UTC)


Your failure to listen to these warnings has resulted in your userspace privileges being taken away. Your privileges may be returned in time. Please, next time listen to us. ---- MAGNEDETH 06:21, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

i think your best bet is to learn how to use a wiki first. check this and then the Manual of style. seriously. a good userpage really belongs to good users. -- MAGNEDETH 07:08, 28 February 2009 (UTC)


So here's the deal, to put it simply. You edited your userpage sixteen times in the course of twenty hours. Not. Good. We prefer that you use the preview button (alt + shift + p) rather than making so many danged edits to it in such a short timespan (especially since you have a grand total of one edit to the mainspace as of right now). It's because you did not respond at all on your talk page to the warnings, and continued to edit your page despite this, that your userpage was locked. I've shortened its lock time from infinite (that's how long it is by default, and when you wanna stop someone from editing, it's faster just to do so).

So cool it, dude, lrn 2 wiki and lurk a bit around pages, checking the differences between revisions (that's the link titled (diff) on page histories) when established editors make them, to see what exactly we're improving and how you can help too. It's what I did, and I was a complete wiki noob before I came here.

Also, it's... not a good idea to spell the names of characters wrong. Blaine is Kanto's #7 Gym Leader. And when you sign, TILDES, MAN, TILDES. Just put ~~~~ at the end of your comments and it'll be automatic. TTEchidna 07:30, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

Editing? Anywhere. EVERYWHERE! 90% of Bulbapedia pages are editable. See where you can add information, we've got plenty of stubs. But like I said. Lurk some. Learn how things work around here, though you seem to have an alright grasp on them. TTEchidna 07:40, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
>>; I don't keep a list of pages that need editing. TTEchidna 07:58, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
Congratulations. Now. Remember. Luxray! Not Luxary! TTEchidna 08:32, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
Deletion. Is our job. Just stick a {{delete}} tag on it, rather than blanking it. TTEchidna 08:43, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

Oh and

Please remember. It's Pokémon, not pokemon. Gotta look professional! TTEchidna 08:09, 28 February 2009 (UTC)


Please use link templates. It's important. They make and easier edit such as {{type2|Fighting}} instead of [[Fighting (type)]]. For a list of link templates, see here. Also, please be aware of your grammar, as as capitalizing Fighting. And Blaziken, not Blazikane. Thank you. Have a nice editing there ^_^ Ҝəυzø8 11:20, 28 February 2009 (UTC)


Heya, Prongs. I looked at the pages and they are looking great. When you mean the awards, do you mean the Golden Bulbasaur Awards.--Clarky13 11:57, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

Me. lol. No. The editorial board don't like to give out awards often, once a month. I think its just these and you have to work really, really, really hard to get one. I always hope to get one. --Clarky13 12:11, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

Basically, you only get awards if you're one of the top contributors to the site in terms of effort and quality. The awards page has a pretty good summary of what needs to be done to earn each award. Lucentas 18:44, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

That and all the award have been covered..--☆Coolピカチュウ! 21:33, 28 February 2009 (UTC)


You've been making too many edits to the User talk: namespace lately. Please take your conversations to the forums, a chatroom, e-mail, an IM service, or something similar, as that many edits will slow down the server. --- Kogoro | Talk to me - 12:00, 28 February 2009 (UTC)


Alright. From what I understood, you are an Indian. तुम यहाँ चौथे भारतीय हैं! Next, you want to edit your userpage. However, as you have exceeded the daily limit for userspace editing, so your page has been locked. You will surely be given back the power to edit your page once you start making better contributions. Just make sure that you don't over-edit it. And finally. Yeah. I saw the last match. Too bad that Irfan could not finish it off. However, I'm not dissapointed by the way the bowlers fought without Ishant while defending a paltry 149.--Sher-e-Bengal- 11:18, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

Not Yet

Rules are that we CANNOT unprotect it until the episode airs.--☆Coolピカチュウ! 05:45, 6 March 2009 (UTC)

But rules also say that we have to go by the latest news. --Prongs 05:46, 6 March 2009 (UTC)PRONGS

We can't reveal it until the episode airs.--Sher-e-Bengal- 05:47, 6 March 2009 (UTC)
The latest news is when the episode in question airs, not from what we predict. ΘρtιmαtumTalk 05:50, 6 March 2009 (UTC)

Then why is it written on the news article about the new movie poster ? --Prongs 05:53, 6 March 2009 (UTC)PRONGS

Your deduction is full of holes. Just because the movie poster shows it, doesn't mean it is Ash's or that it's evolving in that specific episode. Thus, Prosecutor Prongs, your unreliable! *Cornered* ΘρtιmαtumTalk 05:59, 6 March 2009 (UTC)

So you should cut it from the news as well. --Prongs 06:09, 6 March 2009 (UTC)PRONGS

Cut what? The movie poster? OBJECTION! The movie poster is relevant news! BUT DEDUCTING THAT ASH'S STARAVIA ISN'T. THAT IS A PREDICTION! ΘρtιmαtumTalk 06:18, 6 March 2009 (UTC)

But the article says that Starvia and Chimchar will evolve. --Prongs 06:21, 6 March 2009 (UTC)PRONGS

Nope, don't see it. ΘρtιmαtumTalk 06:24, 6 March 2009 (UTC)

Aha.So they have chnged it. Just look at its history and you will see. --Prongs 06:29, 6 March 2009 (UTC)PRONGS

Previews of any sort can be decieving. Take the preview for DP034, for instance. That preview, by the reasonings of gun-jumpers, pretty much confirmed that Ash would be capturing a Buizel in that episode. The episode itself comes, and that Buizel ended up in Dawn's hands instead! (It would end up in Ash's hands 21 episodes later in exchange for Ash's Aipom.) Simply put, never assume anything from a poster or an episode preview. For all we know, that damn penguin whose evolution is long overdue finally evolves in DP119 despite there being a Piplup in the poster in question...--Shiningpikablu252 17:23, 6 March 2009 (UTC)


Hi Taran I guess Milotic and some others will do good.Just post your Email ID here.--Prongs 08:25, 8 March 2009 (UTC)

As Shiningpikablu252 said

We can't count previews as evidences. We can't list it till the episode airs.--Sher-e-Bengal- 09:29, 10 March 2009 (UTC)


Sure...I can't give you Volt Tackle and I don't need Poliwhirl anymore! YinYang 01:57, 17 March 2009 (UTC)


Hi guys I have been thinking about this and DP 118 has provided me a medium. Like Staraptor has cleared his opposition Hunchkrow so now they dont need to battle again dont they? So Ash can now use a few old ones. Ofcourse Inferinape is necessary. --Prongs 07:22, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

What are you doing?--FF(edits-talk) 07:42, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

Aw man let me answer! I am trying to make my own signature using Clarky's code. Ofcourse I will change the name . Sorry Clarky should have asked first. --Prongs13 07:47, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

Lets see. --ProngsHa 07:50, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

Yipee .Thanks Clarky. --ProngsHa 07:51, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

lol. Stealing my signature, eh. jks :p That's OK.--Clarky13 07:56, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

All right if you have a problem. What about this one? Ha Ha Ha--ProngsTalk 08:00, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

You realise you don't need to click "save page" to test a sig, just click "show preview", adjust in your prefs, and then click "show preview" again. Repeat to perfection, and enjoy! — THE TROM — 08:05, 23 March 2009 (UTC)
lol, and now you have taken Optimatum's signature. Try and create one that is unique to you and has your personality. --Clarky13 08:17, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

Can oyu please give me an idea. I prefer comic writing ,black or red ,a link to my talk in subscript ,funny look and as you said it should be unique. --ProngsTalk 08:27, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

What font is comic writing?--Clarky13 09:20, 23 March 2009 (UTC)
Comic writing is any funny font.All right? --ProngsTalk 10:39, 23 March 2009 (UTC)
Rightio, I'll make you a signature then.--Clarky13 10:46, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

Thanks a million .(PS Sorry for a late reply was sort of busy on the Forums.

Aw man forgot to sign. --ProngsTalk 10:50, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

Oh, Prongs done. Just type this into the "Signature" part of your Preferences, tick the little box below it and hey presto, you have a signo:

'''[[User:Prongs|<b><span style="font-family:Comic Sands MS; color:gold;">Prongs</span>]] <sub>'''([[User Talk:Prongs|<span style="color:black;">Talk</span>]] • [[Special:Contributions/Prongs|<span style="color:black;">Contributions</span>]])'''</sub>--Clarky13 11:29, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

This is done by Clarky isint it? Forgot to sign while writing about signs.--ProngsTalk 11:21, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

It asks to check the HTML code. --ProngsTalk 11:26, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

Sorry, that was me. Does it ask to check the HTML coding?--Clarky13 11:29, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

Yep but no offence meant? - unsigned comment from Prongs (talkcontribs)

If you notice that someone forgets to sign, don't be afraid to add {{unsigned|Username}}. And, indent your comment by adding colon (:) so that we would easily read it and distinguish it from the above text, especially when someone forgot to sign his/her comment, like this:
Just add one more colon after the last person who posted the comment. Thanks, ^^ Ҝəυzø8 11:31, 23 March 2009 (UTC)
Like this? --ProngsTalk 11:33, 23 March 2009 (UTC)
By the way Clarky is not bad. --ProngsTalk 11:34, 23 March 2009 (UTC)
lol, its OK. I'll get Kevo back Mhahahahahaha. Anyway I found the source of the problem. Do exactly everything I told you before, but add this code instead:

Edit Summaries

I've noticed by looking through your contributions that you don't use edit all. They're very helpful by letting people know why you're making an edit. -Sketch 11:02, 23 March 2009 (UTC)
