Happy January!

As [[Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl]] officially hit store shelves, we have some Bulbapedia updates to share.  
+
It’s hard to believe that the first month of 2022 is already almost over! As January comes to a close and {{g|Legends: Arceus}} officially released worldwide, here are a few updates you should know about.  
   −
This year, Bulbapedia will not be locking down for the new game release. It looks like these games won't introduce mechanical differences that will require big changes to pages as we've seen in times past.  As a result, we are experimenting with the wiki remaining open and allowing folks to jump in head first with adding new information. If you're new to editing, please do not add information taken from other fansites - we don't allow plagiarism. This includes text, images, and data.  Please reach out to a member of {{bp|Staff}} if you are looking for ideas of specific tasks or projects we are looking for help with.

As many know, Bulbapedia experimented by remaining open during the Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl release in order to test site stability and to maximize user participation. Due to the success observed last time, Bulbapedia will once again be remaining open to editing for Pokemon Legends: Arceus as well. Because this game is not a remake and may attract more traffic, staff will be monitoring site performance over the next several days and will determine if we need to reevaluate.
   −
In line with encouraging a wider range of users to contribute during the game release period, we have also decided to trial a new software for the [https://archives.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Main_Page Bulbagarden Archives] that allows all users to upload images; non-autoconfirmed users will have images placed in a moderation queue. Staff members will review and approve images if they are appropriate. As this feature is still undergoing testing, please report any feedback or issues you may experience with a member of Staff so it may be passed along to our technical team to address.  
+
As a general reminder during this exciting time, please do not add information taken from other fansites - we don't allow plagiarism. This includes text, images, and data. Please reach out to a member of Staff if you are looking for ideas of specific tasks or projects we are looking for help with.

We're just as excited as you for new games - have fun being back in [[Sinnoh]], and happy editing!

In other news, since we’re celebrating a new year and a new game, we thought there’d be no better time to bring on some new staff!
