Welcome to Bulbapedia, DarienLeonhart!

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!

Small note

Hello, I recently noticed that you reverted an edit I made to your talk page comment. While yes, that is the policy, staff members have the right to edit comments and any content for that matter that they deem rule-breaking or unnecessary. Me, a staff member, viewed the bolding of your comment as rude and it is read almost like you are attempting to yell or be authoritative over other users. I will be removing the bold again, do not add it back please. Thank you. --Pokemaster97 01:46, 4 March 2015 (UTC)

Well then clearly you misinterpreted the bold. Because there were so many posts on the subject already, I figured bold would make it easier to read mine and that was my only intention. Also, I disagree with your intrepretatino of the rule of editing other people's posts regarding site moderators such as yourself. You can't expect to enforce a rule and not have to obey it yourself. I saw no where on the site that making text bold was in violation of any policy and until you show me where it says as such, I will put it back as bold. And so far, you're only one person who doesn't like it. One person doesn't make it law. DarienLeonhart (talk) 02:09, 4 March 2015 (UTC)
I agree with Pokemaster97, the bolding is unnecessary. Just because there are a lot of posts on the subject, doesn't mean your comment will be difficult to read. Bolding just makes the post rude. Also, it is our duty as staff to make sure discussions are progressing in a civil manner. If we feel that a post is uncivil, we have every right to either edit it or remove it entirely.--ForceFire 04:23, 4 March 2015 (UTC)
And I still disagree. I do not view bold type as rude and I will use bold type when I see fit until I am shown where it says bold type is not permitted on talk pages. If you or any site moderator can't show proof of your claims regarding bold type, then leave my posts alone as you have no claim for your basis except a personal belief.

Because it doesn't need to be spelt out. It's common sense. Bolding gives a sense of authority, it grabs users attention. When not used by authority, it just looks rude and arrogant. Again, there is no written policy about bolding comments, it's just common sense.--ForceFire 04:40, 4 March 2015 (UTC)
Actually it does need to be spelled out. I'm sure I'm not the only person who thinks so, but I never once in my life thought that bold text is considered rude, arrogant, and/or yelling and I will continue to believe as such. And until I see it in writing on Bulbapedia's proper conduct pages, I will use bold print when I see fit. DarienLeonhart (talk) 04:48, 4 March 2015 (UTC)
