Welcome to Bulbapedia, Smeargle!

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.
  • 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.
  • A list of the admins that you can contact if there is a problem can be found here.

Thank you, and have a good time editing here!-Billy4b2004 08:53, 14 January 2008 (UTC)

Heres the deal

your name is waaaay too close to the name of an admin, actually, the owner of the site, so that is against the rules. however, if you just tell me if you want a new name, we can change your account name. if you dont respond, then we will have to close this account. -- MAGNEDETH 19:01, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

I think both persons in question (Archaic and Archaeic) are aware of the situation. I checked the "User contributions" list of Archaeic and found this. UltimateSephiroth (about me · chat · edits) 19:25, 21 June 2009 (UTC)
It can be changed if it's needed. However, the similarities in name were not intentional; I was not aware one of the admins was called Archaic when this account was created. Personally I can tell the difference between the two quite easily, and it's not like I've been imitating Archaic. If it's necessary that I need a name change, however, it could be changed to Smeargle. (Favourite Pokemon ahoy ;)) -17:25, 22 June 2009 (UTC)
If you really want a username change, which I would highly recommend, drop TTEchidna a line. --Shiningpikablu252 17:42, 22 June 2009 (UTC)
or Blu, i could do it. i have that power too and so do you...
ANYWAY, while im not a fan of users named directly after Pokemon (as it becomes extremely confusing) it can be done if thats what you want. -- MAGNEDETH 22:21, 22 June 2009 (UTC)
Yes, please, I'd liek to be called Smeargle on the wiki. :3 - Archaeic 16:30, 23 June 2009 (UTC)
ok then. Smeargle. btw, images are no longer allowed in signatures, so they will have to go. -- MAGNEDETH 18:53, 23 June 2009 (UTC)
we seem to be suffering from a major technical problem, so you might need to wait a little bit before we can do this.. -- MAGNEDETH 18:57, 23 June 2009 (UTC)
Post a message on my talk after we clear up this technical error. TTEchidna 19:11, 23 June 2009 (UTC)
