Welcome to Bulbapedia, Serpental!

Here are a few links to help you get started:

The Manual of Style, or MoS, outlines the format of all pages on Bulbapedia.

Our friendly team of staff are here to help! Talk to them if you have any questions or problems with Bulbapedia.

On talk pages, please sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~), or by using the "Your signature with a timestamp" (button_sig.png) button at the top of the edit window.

On Bulbapedia, the ability to edit personal userpages is a privilege. Per our userpage policy, this must be earned by first making constructive edits to the mainspace. Once you can, remember to keep userspace edits (edits to User:Serpental) to a minimum.

For a complete list of policies and editing advice, please see the Welcome Portal.
 Thank you, and have a good time editing here!

Images

Hey there Serpental, please don't hotlink images on our pages. Instead, place an image on a page by typing [[image:image name.png]]. Thanks! たかはり 08:34, 25 July 2010 (UTC)

Ash's Pokémon

It's really not necessary to add lists of Gym battles to the Pokémon pages, as the information is already detailed in the description. Please don't do it anymore.--PhantomJunkie 21:36, 25 July 2010 (UTC)

Also, I noticed you added the information back to Ash's Buizel after Werdnae removed it. That's known as edit-warring, and is a bannable offense. So really, if your edits get reverted, it's for a reason, and you aren't supposed to put them back in.--PhantomJunkie 21:39, 25 July 2010 (UTC)
Firstly, a reminder not to edit war. Edit warring is a blockable offence. Bring it up on the talk page instead of adding it back in. Secondly, while it is nice to have images of the abilities, unless it is clear that the Pokémon is using the ability, please don't add the picture. The only effect that Heatproof had in that battle was that Bronzor took less damage from Fire-type moves. It wasn't like Overgrow or Blaze, where the user glowed green or became surrounded by fire. It looked exactly the same as if Bronzor didn't have Heatproof. The only way we could really tell was that it was commented on, so the picture doesn't actually show anything. Thirdly, it would be appreciated if you could make the images you take pngs instead of jpgs. Pngs are often higher quality. Thanks. Werdnae (talk) 20:33, 1 August 2010 (UTC)

COD

Hey Serpental, I don't think that characters of the day need infoboxes on their pages. You're better off just putting in a picture of the character and then the voice actor table underneath their Pokémon. Maybe ask Kenji-girl what she thinks. たかはり 12:36, 7 August 2010 (UTC)

Userspace limits

Hi. I noticed you have been editing the User: namespace a lot recently. Please don't do it any more, though. Bulbapedia's Userspace policy restricts the amount you can edit your userpage: no more than three edits per day. This policy was instated to prevent strain on our server, and also to promote people helping out in the mainspace. Bulbapedia is an encyclopedia, after all, so help us out by contributing to some articles before coming back to your personal userpage. The more often you edit in the mainspace, the more you will be allowed to edit your userpage. Thanks! --- Kogoro | Talk to me - 21:10, 23 August 2010 (UTC)

Link Templates

Please use link templates when linking to stuff such as Pokémon names, attacks, and the like. For example, {{p|Gliscor}} instead of just [[Gliscor]]. 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. ----Cold (talk) 23:14, 9 September 2010 (UTC)

Hold on!

If you did not read your last warning, then please read it now. You have edited the User: namespace too much. In the past, no one was allowed to edit their userpages because some users were over-editing their own userpages. Your personal editing privileges can be taken away, so please do not edit your page any more for now. Instead, how about helping contribute to some of Bulbapedia's many articles? Thank you. -- Jellotalk 01:25, 12 September 2010 (UTC)

Userspace limits

Hi. I noticed you have been editing the User: namespace a lot recently. Please don't do it any more, though. Bulbapedia's Userspace policy restricts the amount you can edit your userpage: no more than three edits per day and make sure you contribute to our mainspace more than your userspace. This policy was instated to promote people helping out in the mainspace, and also to control strain on our server. Bulbapedia is an encyclopedia, after all, so help us out by contributing to some articles before coming back to your personal userpage. The more often you edit in the mainspace, the more you will be allowed to edit your userpage. Thanks! --ForceFire 06:12, 4 May 2012 (UTC)
