==Vandalism==
Due to the interactive and collaborative nature of the site, Bulbapedia is prone to vandalism. This is often quickly seen and reverted by good-faith contributors, but two incidents have stood out in the site's history. '''The Great Bulbapedia Turkey Shoot''' is the firstVandalism, and was for a long period of time documented for its historicity. The secondcourse, more recent spate is unnamed,not althoughtolerated it was once jokingly referred to as '''The Greaton Bulbapedia Turkey Shoot II: Back for Dessert'''.<ref>[http://bmgf.bulbagarden.net/showthread.php?t=37837&page=3 Turkey Shoot II]</ref> The Turkey Shoot had its own article on the site for a fairly long period of time, but many people, both general users and staffaccounts alike,performing foundsuch theactions article towill be of questionable notability. The {{bp|staff}} of Bulbapedia held a vote in late March of 2012 and decided the article was no longer worthblocked keepingpermanently.
 
:"Things like [that page] give us the small-town feel, but we've almost certainly outgrown it. I'm fine with it being taken down." — {{u|evkl}}
:"It has been decided that although [the] page details a major point in Bulbapedia's history, it glorifies vandalism, which sends the wrong message. We do not tolerate vandalism, nor shall we ever again dedicate a page to showcasing such heinous acts on our site." — {{u|MAGNEDETH}}
 
Vandalism, of course, is not tolerated on Bulbapedia and accounts performing such actions will be blocked permanently.
