Welcome to Bulbapedia, Clorox!

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.
  • Keep an eye on the Messages from the Editor on the main page, to stay informed on current events on Bulbapedia.
  • The word Pokémon is spelled with a capital P and an accented é. The é can be accessed by holding Alt and typing either 130 or 0233 on a Windows computer, and by using Option + e, then e again on a Mac. Otherwise, you can easily click it in the character palette below the editbox.
  • The word Poké Ball is spelled as two words. The "Poké" part is identical to the four beginning letters in "Pokémon"; "Ball" is spelled with a capital B. The spelling "Pokéball" arises frequently, but is incorrect.
  • The word "you" and all forms of it should not be used on encyclopedic pages unless it is a quote from Pokémon or other media. Bulbapedia is an encyclopedia, not a walkthrough.
  • 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.
  • For a future capture, release, trade, or evolution of a Pokémon belonging to a main character of the anime, please do not create or move the page to reflect your suspicions, even if they are shared by many others. Policy here is to wait until the episode in which the event happens takes place is aired, unless there is substantial evidence for the suspicion (such as Brock's Happiny being held in his arms).
  • Image uploading is done on Bulbagarden Archives, a separate wiki accessible through the toolbox in the sidebar. This is done so that both Bulbapedia and Bulbanews have access to the images uploaded. To activate your account at the Archives and Bulbanews, please login there using the same username and password you use here on Bulbapedia.
  • If you want to make a page about a character you made up, please create it at User:Clorox/(name), not merely (name). Bulbapedia's main namespace is reserved for actual, official Pokémon, items, characters, and locations. Also, please try to make sure that subpages are not categorized by templates used within.
  • Having said this, please make sure that you do contribute adequately to the main namespace. Bulbapedia is not MySpace or Facebook.
  • A list of the admins that you can contact in case of a problem can be found here.

Thank you, and have a good time editing here! --Shiningpikablu252 21:39, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

I want to create a userpage. And I know why I can't. I still want to though, so I'm posting here.

The entirety of what I want:

I'm a sophomore at Cinco Ranch High School in Katy, Texas. Blah blah blah short user page. If you want to see a longer one, check out User:Clorox.

If you want a sig, check out the signature policy for instructions on how to do it without creating a page for it. Signature templates were forbidden some time ago. This "user page" of yours is nice, small, and unobtrusive, so you might catch one of the admins on a good day and get him to move it for you. But be careful that you don't wind up on anyone's bad side. --Martonimos((Argh|Blargh)) 02:51, 25 June 2008 (UTC)
Ok, good. I have one now - and I don't think I need this anymore. --'Clorox 03:00, 25 June 2008 (UTC)
Except we are no longer able to have images, just trying to warn you before you get in trouble (like everyone else did!!) MoldyOrange 03:01, 25 June 2008 (UTC)
Ruddy edit conflicts... anyway, thanks for acknowledging my post. Like Moldy said, remove the images, and you're done. You obviously know what you're doing, but Bulba works a bit differently than Wiki, so we're just trying to keep you out of trouble. --Martonimos((Argh|Blargh)) 03:03, 25 June 2008 (UTC)
But everyone else is doing it... </whine> :D --'Clorox 03:07, 25 June 2008 (UTC)
Er, I guess I'll shove mine over from Wikipedia somehow. Though I have to get to bed, so I'll do it tomorrow. --'Clorox 03:09, 25 June 2008 (UTC)
Just be careful. When posting anything in general, Wiki is different from Bulba. Some of the templates will be a bit different... ht14 00:15, 18 September 2008 (UTC)

Images in signatures

Images in signatures are not permitted as per the official signature policy. You're going to have to remove those images you're using in your signature. Failure to comply may result in consequences. --Shiningpikablu252 03:39, 30 July 2008 (UTC)
