Welcome to Bulbapedia, Zelkova!

By creating your account you are now able to edit pages, join discussions, and expand the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia. Before you jump in, here are some ground rules:

  • Be nice to everyone. It's in the code of conduct.
  • Make good edits. Preview them before you save to make sure they're perfect the first time around.
  • Use wikicode and link templates when adding content to a page.
  • Use proper grammar and spelling, and read the manual of style.
  • You can't create a userpage until you've added to the encyclopedia. It's a privilege. See the userspace policy.
  • Use talk pages to resolve editing disputes. Don't "edit war," or constantly re-edit/undo the same thing on a page.
  • If you have a question about something, be proactive. Take a look at our FAQ. If you're still stuck, ask for help. The staff won't bite.
  • Sign all talk page posts with four tildes (~~~~). This will turn into your name and the time you wrote the comment.
  • For more handy links, see the welcome portal.
Thank you, and have a good time editing here!

Signature Testing

Testing.   →   Zelkova   (Talk)   22:06, 15 May 2011 (UTC)

If that's your finished signature, you'll have to change it. The signature policy prohibits signatures from having a font size larger than a normal line of text. Since different people have different font sizes, it's recommended that you don't set the font size using absolute sizes. If you want to make it smaller, use one or more <small> tags, as that uses relative sizes. Werdnae (talk) 22:48, 15 May 2011 (UTC)
I thought so; I'm still in the process of refining it. I figured that, because Calibri is a relatively small font on its own, the fact that it spans an extra 2 pixels (1 on top and 1 below) might be acceptable. Regardless, the relativity issue you mentioned does need to be fixed (I'll just drop the sizes completely, and add a small and/or sup tag for the Talk link). This totally slipped my mind when I first created the signature, thank you for the corrections. I'll fix it ASAP for further revision.

Is there any rule as to where we should place our signatures after a comment (immediately after the last bit of text, on the next line like I have just done [an additional manual indent is needed], etc)? Aside from that: how's this (below)?
→   Zelkova   Talk     23:43, 15 May 2011 (UTC)
It's fine as it is now. I don't recall whether it's specifically a rule, but we prefer it to be signed on the same line as the comment. Thanks for changing it. Werdnae (talk) 23:47, 15 May 2011 (UTC)
Oh, and could you please use the preview button to check how the coding looks? Saving the page repeatedly is filling up the Recent Changes. Werdnae (talk) 23:50, 15 May 2011 (UTC)
I think 3 of those were typo fixes, because I didn't realize TP edits would show up on the Recent Changes list. :S Sorry about that; and now I know. As for the Preview function, I've been using it every time for checking, so no worries there (I'm not a complete wiki noob :) ).   →   Zelkova   (Talk)   00:11, 16 May 2011 (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! -- Jellotalk 18:29, 19 May 2011 (UTC)

I will do that then. As for the welcome template, I don't recall removing it at all, as I was not even able to. I'm assuming I can archive it as well? (Also, I'm having an issue where nothing is showing up on my talk page at all, whether I'm logged in or not. Even when I go to edit my talk page, it shows that there is no code present and gives me an error upon trying to save anything. It usually takes a few minutes after logging in to see anything on my talk page. Any ideas?)   →   Zelkova   (Talk)   18:31, 21 May 2011 (UTC)
Nevermind, I have found the cause and corrected it. I will consider this discussion complete. Thank you Jello.   →   Zelkova   (Talk)   19:32, 21 May 2011 (UTC)

Project Notices

Hi I notice you have been adding project notices on pages. While this is good and wanted please make sure that the project notice template goes at the bottom of the page. When you are editing and there are other templates there {{Ie. (stub}}) make sure the project notice is the last one listed. Have a good day! --Pokemaster97 20:05, 22 May 2011 (UTC)

Alright, I wasn't sure about that - even below the {{Orre}} box? Thanks for the notice.   →   Zelkova   (Talk)   20:07, 22 May 2011 (UTC)
Yes even the "Orre" box. This is so the template appears at the bottom of the page and will look less ackward. Hope this helped! --Pokemaster97 20:10, 22 May 2011 (UTC)
Also, should the "stub" notice go below the Orre box, but still above the project notice? As in, the order of the three would be: Orre box, stub notice, then project notice.   →   Zelkova   (Talk)   20:12, 22 May 2011 (UTC)
It's usually more like Stub,Orre,Project Notice. --Pokemaster97 20:17, 22 May 2011 (UTC)
Got it.   →   Zelkova   (Talk)   20:28, 22 May 2011 (UTC)
