Card images

We purposefully did not use the English scans of the Legends for a reason. Zedbill had scanned for us images of his own personal LEGENDS cards, and we much prefer his scans over the ugly ones that pokemon.com released. Language does not matter: we use based on clarity of the image for the artwork. That's the whole reason for the images--the artwork. Also, we have a style for naming the card images, and if the image used is already in the proper style, any changes must go through me, the project leader. That is why I reverted your image change, if you have any questions, ask me. MaverickNate 23:14, 19 January 2010 (UTC)

a couple of things

Please use link templates. They are official policy. For example, {{p|Lugia}} instead of [[Lugia]]. For a list of link templates, see the list of link templates. Another thing, please don't use the words "you" or "your" in articles as it isn't considered encyclopedic. Turtwig A (talk | contribs) 23:16, 19 January 2010 (UTC)

Preview Button

It's right next to the save page button. Please use it to see how the page will look when it is saved so that you can make fewer edits to the page in a short ammount of time. Thanks. Werdnae (talk) 21:13, 28 June 2010 (UTC)


As the title suggests, I have a tip for you. Jello (one of the junior administrators) will eventually ask you to change your userpage since it's very similar to hers. The reason I am saying this is because it's better if you do it now to save time for later.

Userspace limits

Hi. I noticed you have been editing the User: namespace a lot recently. Please don't do it any more, though. Bulbapedia's Userspace policy restricts the amount you can edit your userpage: no more than three edits per day. This policy was instated to prevent strain on our server, and also to promote people helping out in the mainspace. Bulbapedia is an encyclopedia, after all, so help us out by contributing to some articles before coming back to your personal userpage. The more often you edit in the mainspace, the more you will be allowed to edit your userpage. Thanks! -- Jellotalk 21:33, 16 October 2010 (UTC)

Hold on!

If you did not read your last warning, then please read it now. You have edited the User: namespace too much. In the past, no one was allowed to edit their userpages because some users were over-editing their own userpages. Your personal editing privileges can be taken away, so please do not edit your page any more for now. Instead, how about helping contribute to some of Bulbapedia's many articles? Thank you. -- Jellotalk 02:36, 17 October 2010 (UTC)
