User talk:Diachronos


Welcome to Bulbapedia, Diachronos!

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.
  • Read over the style primer before making your edits. It is a basic outline of Bulbapedia style. For a more in-depth set of rules, see the manual of style.
  • 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.
  • 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:Diachronos/(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! --ニョロトノ666 22:58, 5 September 2008 (UTC)

Talk pages

We try to keep the discussion on talk pages relevant to the related article. This doesn't mean discussing the subject of the article, just the article itself. If you want to talk to people about various other topics, like the fifth generation or what someone should or shouldn't be posting, the Bulbagarden forums are always open. --Martonimos((Argh|Blargh)) 18:31, 19 September 2008 (UTC)

Fave Pokémon

There's a user template for all of them, including fave of each type. Ask an admin for mor details--KukiTalk 18:10, 25 September 2008 (UTC)

Actually, they're all at Category:Favorite-type tags .--Kkllnn blastoise 19:34, 25 September 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for that info. But how do I change the sprites to the shiny versions; it doesn't say how on the type pages. Diachronos 15:55, 26 September 2008 (UTC)
The templates use the number field to find the image you want, so just replace the number with the filename of the shiny image. For example, instead of just 448 for Lucario, do Spr_4d_448_s. --((Marton imos)) 17:40, 26 September 2008 (UTC)
Ok, thanks. Diachronos 17:41, 26 September 2008 (UTC)


Slow down on editing the User: namespace. Editing your userpage too much will lead to it being locked again. Instead of making multiple small edits, why not instead use the preview button (Alt + Shift + P) to check your edits before saving the page? Thank you. --Porygon-Z 18:00, 29 September 2008 (UTC)


This is your second warning. Please refrain from editing the User: namespace too rapidly, or you will lose privileges. --((Marton imos)) 22:42, 8 October 2008 (UTC)

Sorry, dude, but you did make four edits so far today. --((Marton imos)) 22:42, 8 October 2008 (UTC)
The fourth one was to fix a spelling mistake. Diachronos 15:50, 9 October 2008 (UTC)
That's why you press the preview button... ht14 15:52, 9 October 2008 (UTC)
I didn't notice it until after I'd already saved the third edit. Diachronos 15:55, 9 October 2008 (UTC)

Yes, I know I went over today. I wasn't paying attention. Diachronos 18:15, 19 November 2008 (UTC)

Which means I have to give you this, please pay better attention next time. - Kogoro | Talk to me - 18:22, 19 November 2008 (UTC)


This is your final warning. Failure to comply with the limit on editing the User: namespace will cause you to lose the ability to edit it. --- Kogoro | Talk to me - 18:22, 19 November 2008 (UTC)

Talk pages

It isn't wrong or against the rules to do it, but on talk pages you've been starting new sections by editing the page itself. An easier way to do it is click the + tab at the top of the page next to Edit, type whatever you want for the title of the new section in the subject/headline, and then type what you want. R.A.

For some reason the site keeps logging me out every other time I go to a new page. Diachronos 16:23, 3 June 2009 (UTC)

Talk pages

Please only use them to discuss the content of the page, not the topic. For that, use the forums instead. --SnorlaxMonster 04:29, 12 September 2010 (UTC)
