Link Templates

Please use link templates when linking to stuff such as Pokémon names, attacks, and the like. For example, {{P|Munchlax}} instead of just [[Munchlax]]. This is so you don't unintentionally link to a disambiguation page.

For a full crash course on link templates, look at the list of link templates. --Chocolate (Chat with Me) 03:04, 28 December 2008 (UTC)

Hi there. In future, link to a "Version" game with templates {{game}} or {{v}}, instead of {{g}} because that gives us a redirect page, when we could just as easily use the correct template. Nice piece of trivia there, by the way. Thanks. — THE TROM — 11:18, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

You've been around here a far bit

But one or so things you gotta know.

  1. Pokémon. Capital P and an accented e. You've been doing this right, but sometime don't capitalize the P.
  2. Link Templates. Like the people above said, use them. Type {{a|Magic Guard}} instead of [[Magic Guard]]
  3. Its vs It's. It's is the contraction of It is, while its is the possesive. For eg. "Marowak uses its bone to attack other Pokémon."

Also, "you". Never ever ever use it. TTEchidna 00:08, 5 September 2009 (UTC)

Talk Page Comments

Removing talk page comments, including the initial welcome template, is prohibited per Bulbapedia's talk page policy. Please do not remove any comments in the future. If you wish to clean old comments away, you should archive your talk page instead. Thank you! --CuboneKing 00:45, 26 August 2009 (UTC)

Sorry, I didn't know, wont happen again :) --Ripp145 01:15, 26 August 2009 (UTC)


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! ----Dark ICE (User:Cold)(page, talk) 17:40, 26 August 2009 (UTC)
