User talk:Axl625

I know you have been here for a while but it won't hurt to read over this once. Axl625


Welcome to Bulbapedia, Axl625!


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.
  • The word Pokémon is spelled with a capital P and an accented é. The P, of course, is accessed easily by holding Shift and pressing the P key, while the é can be accessed using Alt + 130 or Alt + 0233 on a Windows computer, and Option + e, then e again on a Mac. Otherwise, you can 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 captial B (which is, again, accessed by holding Shift and pressing the B key). 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. You will have to register separately for it, as well. This is done so that both Bulbapedia and Bulbanews have access to the images uploaded.
  • If you want to make a page about a character you made up, please create it at User:Axl625/(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! MoldyOrange 03:44, 12 April 2008 (UTC)

Don't forget to use link templates!

See shortlinks. TTEchidna 19:23, 7 May 2008 (UTC)


Where'd you see faster surfing? tc26 13:21, 9 August 2008 (UTC)


My response is on my talk, but I do have some hints for ya.

  1. When signing off, please use the tildes. ~~~~ is how, and nothing else. It does the time, and your time zone doesn't matter, because if everyone's on UTC, then we aaaaaall get it. Kay!
  2. New responses go at the bottom. Click the little + at the top of the talk page to just add a new section.
  3. plz to be not using the {{p2}} as an excuse to link the 's, it's not needed. Victreebel's is fine.
  4. Try not to spend twenty minutes re-editing the page over and over and over and over to alter your signature. Sign it the first time. TTEchidna 07:45, 20 August 2008 (UTC)

The move sets...

When it comes to adding moves, do what I do. Go to a history page before July, then check the moves of the Generation you are doing. It's a very useful tactic. Θρtιmαtum♏Talk|Links09:14 20 Aug 2008


You've been making too many edits to the User talk: namespace lately. Please take your conversations to the forums, a chatroom, e-mail, an IM service, or something similar, as that many edits will slow down the server. --KukiTalk 14:52, 20 August 2008 (UTC)

Regarding your nickname...

Simple. First, cook up some code like what you did there (nifty, looks good too). Then, copy the following code:

'''[[User:Axl625|<span style="color:#990000"><span style="background:#FFFFCC">Axl</span></span>]][[User talk:Axl625|<span style="color:#993399"><span style="background:#FFFFCC">625</span></span>]]'''

Coopy it and select the 'my preferences' button at the top of the screen. Under 'Signature', paste the code there. Then, tick the raw signatures and save (the save button is at the bottom). Test it on your user page or something (preferably you talk page) by typing four tildes. Θρtιmαtum♏Talk|Links13:03 5 Sep 2008
