Welcome to Bulbapedia, Dialgafan1!

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:Dialgafan1/(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! ----DCM((TalkContributions)) 01:01, 20 September 2008 (UTC)


Pokémon is spelt with a capital P and an accented E. The latter is obtainable on the character palette below the editbox.--freezingCOLD (page, talk) 22:29, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

Second reminder

Please remember to use the accented e when typing the word Pokémon. It is found in the character palette below the edit window or by typing Alt + 0233. --PAK Man Talk 17:25, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

Link Templates

Please use link templates when linking to stuff such as Pokémon names, attacks, and the like. For example, {{p|Shaymin}} instead of just [[Shaymin]]. This is so you don't unintentionally link to a disambiguation page.

For a full crash course on link templates, look at the list of link templates. ----freezingCOLD (page, talk) 20:48, 12 January 2009 (UTC)

Again, use link templates instead of the longer links. Entei and Entei do the same thing, but it's a pain to write out the whole thing. TTEchidna 03:02, 27 August 2009 (UTC)


Pokémon is not spelled "Pokemon", it's "Pokémon". Remember this. Chocolate (Chat with Me) 19:26, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

Piloswine trivia

If a piece of trivia is removed more than one time, especially if one of those times is by a sysop, it's not wise to keep reinserting it. Repeated reinsertation of non-notable trivia is a blockable offense. Don't insert that piece you've been putting on Piloswine's article again or else you'll be blocked. --Shiningpikablu252 20:13, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

Preview Button

please use it regularly. -- MAGNEDETH 21:11, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

This is very important, please listen to it. The Dark Fiddler - Nos hablamos? 21:59, 19 January 2009 (UTC)
Use it liberaly to. Just for good measureDCM((Mock MeEdits))
wow, seriously, use it. consider this a serious warning. its right next to the "Save page" button, it isnt hard to use. -- MAGNEDETH 02:33, 13 February 2009 (UTC)

Just wondering...

Where are you getting the starter Pokémon info for MD3?--RexRacer -talk 21:59, 19 January 2009 (UTC)


I noticed you have been editing the User: namespace a lot today. You may not be aware of this, but Bulbapedia has a Userspace policy that asks users to try and minimize the number of Userspace edits they make in a short period of time. Instead of making multiple edits, why not use the Preview button (Alt + Shift + P) located right next to the edit button to look at your page and see how it is coming? That way, your page can look great while staying within the required amount of edits. Just wait until tomorrow, ok? Thanks! --0° 18:15, 17 February 2009 (UTC)

Hold on!

If you did not read your last warning, then please read it now. You have edited the User: namespace too much for now. Please do not edit your page any more for now, as it is hard on the server. Thank you, --0° 18:16, 17 February 2009 (UTC)


I'm sorry, I didn't know that. I will stop editing for a little while.--Dialgafan1 18:20, 17 February 2009 (UTC)

You said you'd stop, but you just edited again, so...


Do not edit the User: namespace any more. In the past, we were not allowed to edit our pages at all because of users over-editing their pages. If you edit your page any more today then the privilege for you to edit it will be removed. --0° 18:34, 17 February 2009 (UTC)

Talk Page Comments

Please don't erase talk page comments for no reason. Trust me, you do NOT want to end up like Big Johnno, who got into an edit war with a sysop over comments the former had erased and was trying to keep erased. That user ended up blocked and subsequently had every erased comment restored. --0° 18:41, 17 February 2009 (UTC)


Please sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~) so that everyone knows who put the comment there. Thanks!----freezingCOLD (page, talk) 20:28, 17 February 2009 (UTC)

Preview Button

use it. Please. Instead of making small edits and then going back and making another minor edit, use the preview button and make an necessary changes. Thank you. --PsychicRider 22:53, 17 February 2009 (UTC)

Fourth Reminder

Please spell Pokémon using the accented e, found in the character palette below the edit window or by typing Alt+0233. Thank you. --PAK Man Talk 20:59, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

Just letting you know...

Sorry to break this to you, but you've ignored all your other warnings. As a result, your ability to edit the User: namespace will now likely be taken away. Please try to edit the mainspace more in the future.The Dark Fiddler - 10% Satisfaction Guaranteed! 14:22, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

Yeah. Try reading next time. Reading always makes life easier. --ニョロトノ666 01:34, 23 February 2009 (UTC)

This time, I promise I will go slow with the edits

Hey guys, i see you gave me permission to edit my page again. I'm sorry about earlier and I promise I will go really slow with the edits and only do 1 to 2 per say. Is that fine? --Dialgafan1 00:00, 29 March 2009 (UTC)Dialgafan1

Last Edit for today, I promise

Don't worry, that will be my last edit for the rest of today. --Dialgafan1 00:22, 29 March 2009 (UTC)Dialgafan1

One thing, instead of inserting one tag one by one, why not pick the one's you want and put them in your userspace in one edit? works for me.--FF(editstalk) 00:24, 29 March 2009 (UTC)

No more edits today

That's it with edits. I'm done, no more. --Dialgafan1 01:41, 3 April 2009 (UTC)Dialgafan1

You know....

Be patient, TTE and some others already know about the artwork. Leave the matter at their hands not yours.--ForceFire 01:17, 10 May 2009 (UTC)

Ok, I'll let those people handle getting the artwork. I just wanted to let everybody know because Serebii.net just put up the artwork but I guess I'm not really needed since there's other people on the lookout for that stuff. Thank You ^_^ --Dialgafan1 01:36, 10 May 2009 (UTC)Dialgafan1

Gen IV?

Maybe. Maybe not. Nothing is confirmed. For all we know, they take those parts out. Please stop. — THE TROM — 22:23, 10 May 2009 (UTC)

Okay, sorry I just wanted to help but if you insist I'll stop --Dialgafan1 22:25, 10 May 2009 (UTC)Dialgafan1

That's ok. It's fairly logical, but we have to follow the procedures re. speculation, etc. If you wanna do stuff now, Platinum is still only half complete... — THE TROM — 22:39, 10 May 2009 (UTC)
Do you mean the Pokémon Platinum page or pages relating Platinum? --Dialgafan1 22:46, 10 May 2009 (UTC)Dialgafan1
Trom Already told you to stop, I really don't think you should be doing the Kanto region... -MasterKenobi 21:48, 15 June 2009 (UTC)

It's pretty much been confirmed already. Kanto's Routes and Areas have all been the same throughout every Generation and this one is no different since this game is a remake of the Generation II games it only makes sense that Kanto in these games would be the same as the games they are being remade from. Take Firered and Leafgreen as an example. But I'll stop, I promise --Dialgafan1 21:57, 15 June 2009 (UTC)Dialgafan1

Yep, continue on. Sorry for stopping you. -MasterKenobi 22:41, 15 June 2009 (UTC)

Are you sure it's ok? --Dialgafan1 22:45, 15 June 2009 (UTC)Dialgafan1

Yes, I just talked to Trom and said that Kanto is go. When putting Gen IV on the page double check that it appeared in Gen II. (ex the kanto safari zone didn't appear in Gen II, so don't put Gen IV on there.) -MasterKenobi 22:53, 15 June 2009 (UTC)

Ok, I'll only add the IV to areas in Kanto that were in Generation II. Areas like the Cerulean Cave that weren't in Generation II. will remain untouched. --Dialgafan1 23:00, 15 June 2009 (UTC)Dialgafan1

Johto leaders

Do you have permission to add the HGSS links to their pages yet? It's probably ok, but I just want to make sure. I'm kinda being a bit overprotective of those pages in case somebody screws them up. R.A. Hunter Blade 02:47, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

Please use the Preview button

I see you've made quite many edits in the article Mom in a short time. Please use the Preview button to see the changes, and save the article only after you're sure you don't have edit it right again. This ensures that the recent changes list doesn't get filled with small edits in a specific article. Thanks. UltimateSephiroth (about me · chat · edits) 16:52, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

Ok, sorry. I'll remember to use it in future edits :) --Dialgafan1 16:56, 21 June 2009 (UTC)Dialgafan1

I meant that. After my edit, you did four edits in under ten minutes, and if I'm not wrong, all of them were in the same list item. UltimateSephiroth (about me · chat · edits) 18:16, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

Sorry, I'll be more careful and patient next time. :) --Dialgafan1 18:18, 21 June 2009 (UTC)Dialgafan1


Watch your userspace edits. You don't want to get in trouble again. R.A. Hunter Blade 23:10, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

Ok, I'll stop the edits for today. --Dialgafan1 23:26, 21 June 2009 (UTC)Dialgafan1

Thanks. Just try not to go over three. We technically don't have a limit, but three's a party, and four's a mosh pit. Just trying to keep you having fun. R.A. Hunter Blade 00:37, 22 June 2009 (UTC)

I will stop the edits

I know I went way over the limit and I apologize because I was making party template. I will stop doing edits on my user page till tomorrow. --Dialgafan1 23:35, 25 June 2009 (UTC)Dialgafan1


Do not edit the User: namespace any more. In the past, we were not allowed to edit our pages at all because of users over-editing their pages. If you edit your page any more without making some edits to the mainspace, then the privilege for you to edit the userspace will be removed. --The Dark Fiddler - You enter a poorly lit room... 23:45, 25 June 2009 (UTC)


you were in abuse for a month in February, but apparently you didnt get it. so welcome back to abuse. making a party template is fine, but you could have done it in 1 edit had you used the preview button. but you didnt. -- MAGNEDETH 23:46, 25 June 2009 (UTC)

Well then, I guess I will have to complain to another administrator because you're mean! I'm new here and I know I still don't get it. I have to search user pages and find out step by step and do a lot of copy and pasting, editing, saving pages, then going back, then more editing, and saving pages. I know you're thinking, that I'm probably the most retarded user on Bulbapedia for sassing an Administrator and I feel terrible and just had to say what had to be said. I'm sorry for defying you :'(. I'm tired of being threatened every day.--Dialgafan1 00:39, 26 June 2009 (UTC)Dialgafan1
Where are you being threatened? And preview would eliminate the edit, saving, more editing, etc. The Dark Fiddler - You enter a poorly lit room... 00:43, 26 June 2009 (UTC)
thats a good point from TDF. nowhere were you threatened. but it is to say, way up at the top of this talk page is a welcome to you. in that welcome it contains all our rules and policies of this site. if you had actually read the welcome, then you would know this, and in turn, read the rules you would also know we dont allow people to abuse the userspace. but more-so, you should already know this because you were in abuse in February so honestly, you can whine all you want, but you seriously have no excuse what-so-ever in this situation. -- MAGNEDETH 00:50, 26 June 2009 (UTC)

Whenever you save you sometimes get this message saying that it couldn't save due to loss of session data I click preview again then click save and it won't work then I click save again and it saves. I have trouble figuring out how to make user tags and edit my user page which is what is causing all this chaos in the first place. Maybe if I ask here on my user discussion page how to do stuff instead of figuring it out myself, this problem will go away. :) --Dialgafan1 01:01, 26 June 2009 (UTC)Dialgafan1

Quick question

Did the HG/SS Mewtwo/Latias/Latios rumor get confirmed? Mewtwo's article said CoroCoro confirmed it but Serebii.net said that Mewtwo/Latias/Latios stuff is false while Pokebeach said it was true. I'm just curious and a little confused on this issue. Also, I read Bulbanews but they didn't say anything.--Dialgafan1 22:12, 15 July 2009 (UTC)Dialgafan1

Bulbanews removed it because it was not true. MaverickNate 22:20, 15 July 2009 (UTC)

Thanks. We'll just have to wait and see --Dialgafan1 22:25, 15 July 2009 (UTC)Dialgafan1

Just checking...

I did two edits today under 10 minutes today, is that ok? First I edited then I fixed a minor error in the party template that I forgot to do in the first edit. Huntter Blade told me that three's fine, four is going a little overboard and not to go over three, I just wanted to make sure I wasn't over editing my user space. I really get it and don't want to get put back on abuse for a third time and don't want to ruin it for everybody. I just wanna be a good user and contributor to Bulbapedia. --Dialgafan1 19:15, 25 July 2009 (UTC)

Two under ten is perfectly fine, it's when you overdo it at like 5 when it is a problem. MaverickNate 19:18, 25 July 2009 (UTC)

Ok. Thanks. --Dialgafan1 19:23, 25 July 2009 (UTC)

Was I put on abuse again or is it something else?

I can't edit my user page and I have been very careful with my amount of edits since I was put on abuse twice in January and June. Or is this a temporary tweaking of/problem with the database? --Dialgafan1 01:11, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, you've been there since June. Scanning your contribs, I reckon it's almost time to let you off, but that's a 'crat's decision. —darklordtrom 02:01, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

Link templates

Just a reminder that these are there to help you. The article for the newest game is not located at "Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver"; it is located at "Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver Versions". To link to the second (but make it look like you've linked to the first) type {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}}. Remember that for me and I'll take you out of the abuse usergroup, but remember the userspace policy or you'll be back in in no time. —darklordtrom 19:26, 9 September 2009 (UTC)

Thanks, I did what you said for the Cerulean Cave page when adding HG/SS info. --Dialgafan1 19:34, 9 September 2009 (UTC)


info will be added when we get it confirmed. linking everyone to YouTube does nothing. -- MAGNEDETH 01:44, 11 September 2009 (UTC)

Leader Templates

Just to let you know I am working on all the leader templates so do not worry about fixing them. –MasterKenobi 20:16, 13 September 2009 (UTC)

Hey there

Please try not to speak in the second person (i.e. "Bill gives you the S.S. Ticket") as this is an encyclopedia, not a walkthrough (a good alternative would be "Bill gives the player the S.S. Ticket"). Thank you! :) ZestyCactus 20:49, 24 September 2009 (UTC)

Slow down on the User space editing. Some admin will take your priv's away. ---LūgīāRōcks (Tālk δ Ēdīts) 00:47, 25 November 2009 (UTC)

Don't worry, I'm not going down that road. --Dialgafan1 00:53, 25 November 2009 (UTC)

K, just looking out for you. :) ---LūgīāRōcks (Tālk δ Ēdīts) 00:54, 25 November 2009 (UTC)

Well? Do yu? SpecialK Leiks Lucario and the Celebi Glitch 13:46, 7 March 2010 (UTC)


I noticed you have been editing the User: namespace a lot recently. You may not be aware of this, but Bulbapedia has a Userspace policy that asks users to try and minimize the number of userspace edits they make in a short period of time. Heavy editing of these personal pages can put undue stress on the server, so please leave your page alone for now and go help out in the mainspace. Bulbapedia is an encyclopedia, after all, so please help us to complete it! If you edit the mainspace more often, you will be allowed to edit your userpage more often too. Thanks! --Turtwig A (talk | contribs) 23:05, 6 March 2010 (UTC)

My Apologies

I'm so sorry about breaking the rule about no second editing. I had to fix a broken link. It won't happen again, I promise. Dialgafan1 19:41, 30 March 2010 (UTC)

Umm... you just broke it... ht14 18:33, 2 April 2010 (UTC)
Second warning. This is your 5th edit to the userspace, is it not? By the way, your personal sandbox counts. ht14 22:18, 2 April 2010 (UTC)

Abuse once again

im not even going to type a giant message for you this time. your abuse of the user namespace is abysmally unacceptable. you are now in abuse for the third time and you will remain there until you make some massive amount of mainspace edits. -- MAGNEDETH 23:27, 9 April 2010 (UTC)

I mean really, I'm not the kind of guy you think I am. I'm a nice person, so I will happily comply to your demands and continue to edit the mainspace until my account "re-opens" in about 3 months from now. But that's not the point, I am really sorry for all the trouble I have caused for you and the rest of Bulbapedia and after being put onto abuse for the third time, my stupid enough self finally realizes what Bulbapedia is all about. Next time I'm out of abuse I won't be a self-absorbed snob all about editing my userpage. I'll contribute much more to the mainspace and I will NEVER break the rules of editing in the userspace and follow all the rest of the policies per the Manual of Style. This I promise with all my heart. And I know exactly what you're thinking, but once I get out of abuse you'll see my promise come through. Dialgafan1 18:37, 11 April 2010 (UTC)

Clair and Lance

Hello there. I was looking through page history on Tag battle and saw that you said that the tag battle against Clair and Lance can be done multiple times. I would like to know where you got this from... Please reply soon :) CuboneKing 22:57, 2 May 2010 (UTC)

Sorry, I thought it was more than once but I did some google searching and found out that they can't be battled more than once. But apparently Clair's page implied that she could be battled with Lance more than once. I don't know what to believe. Dialgafan1 23:46, 2 May 2010 (UTC)

I'll track down who added it to that page... CuboneKing 23:48, 2 May 2010 (UTC)

Does anyone know when I'll be getting the right to edit my account back or if I will be getting it back at all?

It's been 3 months (almost 4) and I think I've done my fair share of edits on the main space and that its time to re-open my account to editing. I've seriously learned my lesson. Dialgafan1 21:46, 6 July 2010 (UTC)

Go on then. Don't screw up. —darklordtrom 21:49, 6 July 2010 (UTC)

Thank you. I won't let you down :) Dialgafan1 21:51, 6 July 2010 (UTC)

You let him down. As the below sections say, you've made userspace pages at the wrong name, and you've already far-over edited the userpace. You should know the rules by now, and you even claimed that you learned your lesson from the last three months without the userpace, so your privileges have been removed once again. - Kogoro | Talk to me - 01:33, 7 July 2010 (UTC)


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. 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! -- Jello 01:24, 7 July 2010 (UTC)

Sorry I'll be more careful next time Dialgafan1 01:30, 7 July 2010 (UTC)

I didn't do anything wrong this time.....

Why is my userpage blocked again? I stopped editing it when I was told by an administrator to stop. Check the history. I stopped at 1:18 and the Administrator commented at 1:24. And I won't create any more user subpages. I'm such an idiot. Dialgafan1 15:23, 7 July 2010 (UTC)

MidnightShadowUmbreon: No Your Not, Your Being Hard On Yourself!

I told you to stop editing...after 7 edits. Which is more than double the limit allowed. The point isn't that you stopped after I told you to, it's that you should have known the rules by now after being put in abuse multiple times. You were given another chance, and you easily broke the rules. Jello 21:28, 7 July 2010 (UTC)

I only made 4, check your math over. It's on the history page for proof. Dialgafan1 21:30, 7 July 2010 (UTC)

maybe my math was wrong, it looks like 8. Jello 21:49, 7 July 2010 (UTC)

I'm quitting!

I'm done being beaten around like a punching bag. Delete my account since you hate me this much. I don't care. I used to look up to Bulbapedia. Thanks a lot guys. You really made me feel bad like I'm an evil person that I'm not. Dialgafan1 22:05, 7 July 2010 (UTC)

Overreacting a bit, aren't we? No one hates you. -Sketch 22:23, 7 July 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, I guess I was overreacting. But the administration still doesn't like me, that's a for sure fact. I've been banned 4 times. I'm still thinking now they ought to get rid of me for all of my foolish behaviors in the past. Dialgafan1 22:27, 7 July 2010 (UTC)

Being told to stop editing the userspace isn't equivalent to being treated as a punching bag. Do you not realize why we put the userspace limits in place? It was becoming the sole focus of Bulbapedia's users back in March of 2008. No one was editing mainspace pages. We don't want that to happen again, so we do enforce it quite strictly. Deleted contributions usually don't count, but at the same time, you're kind of a repeat offender, and so our patience wears thin. And while you're doing a few mainspace things, you've touched a grand total of five mainspace pages in the past two months, making teeny edits which, though appreciated, pale in comparison to others.
We don't hate you. Personally, I could care less, if you're a useful member. Buuuut... yeah. Only times you've been really useful are when you're prevented from editing the userspace. And when you're allowed to, you make a thousand pages in it. TTEchidna 22:31, 7 July 2010 (UTC)

Now I understand. Thank you for opening my eyes. I will set things right for the better of Bulbapedia and before you and the administration have no tolerance for me at all. Dialgafan1 22:45, 7 July 2010 (UTC)

Again with the preview button

Please use the preview button. You've been told to use the preview button three times already, and now again. --Carmen (Talk | contribs) 00:18, 5 June 2011 (UTC) Very well. Sorry. Dialgafan1 01:33, 5 June 2011 (UTC)

The Preview Button

Instead of editing a page several times in a row, try using the preview button to make sure your edit looks the way you want it to. It's right next to the Save Changes button... Please try it out, so as not to clog up the Recent Changes. Thanks! --Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 02:33, 5 September 2011 (UTC)

Oh god, I'm such an idiot. My bad. Dialgafan1 02:35, 5 September 2011 (UTC)


Your page, User:Dialgafan1/Sandbox, has exceeded the amount of templates allowed on one page, kindly address the matter, or I can put a delete tag on it for the admins to check, posted by --Skarm (tAlk) 22:29, 25 October 2011 (UTC)

You don't need a delete tag on there. Just make sure you don't exceed that amount of templates anymore. --☆ヨッシ の世界☆ 22:35, 25 October 2011 (UTC)

I wish I could do something about that but I've been blocked since July. Dialgafan1 22:43, 25 October 2011 (UTC)

Force Preview

Alright, you've been told to use the preview button over and over again for years, and this is a serious issue because of the strain it puts on our already busy servers. With incoming news for the upcoming titles, the last thing we need is a flood of 503 errors because someone couldn't preview. So now you are being put into our new force preview usergroup so you'll have to use it. You can still edit, and none of your rights will be inhibited, you just won't be able to save without previewing your edit first, and using that chance to check for mistakes. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 03:54, 17 April 2012 (UTC)

I'm sorry. I was completely unaware of the stress that I have put on the servers. This shall actually help me look over my mistakes better in future edits. Dialgafan1


I've been banned from the userspace for almost two years now. I've learned my lesson. I was stupid back then. I've made an updated user page for myself in Word on my computer (using the correct codes and following Bulbapedia rules and regulations), I checked it over so many times. I won't over update like I used to. Please. Is there any time frame you can at least give me or tell me that I can make a come back? I'll do anything. Or am I banned forever? Dialgafan1 (talk) 01:18, 14 June 2012 (UTC)


Unfortunately, I do not have the power to make that decision. Such a decision on this subject will be made by an Editorial Board member and will be posted on your talk page when the decision has been made.--ForceFire 12:15, 30 July 2012 (UTC)

Can you let them know that I'm due for a review? I don't think anyone has seen my contributions and such since July 2010. Dialgafan1 (talk) 01:13, 31 July 2012 (UTC)
I know I've been bad and all in the past but I've learned a lot about Bulbapedia norms and rules over the two years I was banned. I've built a page and previewed (but not created it) several times, so that I can do a one day overhaul edit and not break the rules. I can't post on MAGNEDETH's talk page, so that's why I came to you. Dialgafan1 (talk) 01:28, 31 July 2012 (UTC)
Alright, here's the situation: You're going to be given one final chance with your userspace privileges. However, there will be no warnings this time. If you violate the userspace policy or the current special restriction even once, your userspace privileges will be permanently revoked. Best of luck, and happy editing. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 07:09, 31 July 2012 (UTC)

Thank you! I did one big overhaul edit and I'm going to wait 24 hours before I make another edit. I know that you can only make one edit per day. Dialgafan1 (talk) 12:27, 31 July 2012 (UTC) I will also help out in exchange for my major edit to my user space.

I will also make at least two edits to the main space within the 24 hour period, as per the guidelines. Dialgafan1 (talk) 12:30, 31 July 2012 (UTC)

I have made the said two edits to the mainspace in exchange for my one massive edit to the user space as per the guidelines. I have read and now understand the userspace policy. Dialgafan1 (talk) 16:54, 31 July 2012 (UTC)


Please be aware that on Bulbapedia, we go by the UTC time because everyone is not in the same time zone. Please be aware of this when keeping track of days. Thank you. --Pokemaster97 20:58, 11 September 2012 (UTC)

Oops. Oh my god. I'm so sorry. --Dialgafan1 (talk) 21:03, 11 September 2012 (UTC)

Preview Button

Eight edits to one page within thirty minutes is not really that good... Please try to use the preview button more. --Abcboy (talk) 15:11, 30 September 2012 (UTC)

When you're just messing around with pictures, please use the preview button. By the way, "thumb" is fine, and you don't need to include "right". If you want it on the left, "thumb|left" is fine. --Abcboy (talk) 14:32, 3 November 2012 (UTC)

Sorry about that. Dialgafan1 (talk) 14:54, 3 November 2012 (UTC)

Let's remind you about the preview button, you edited a page four times today, and edited another page four times on the 17th. The preview button will allow you to see how the page would look like so you can properly check if there are any errors without submitting, at least until you're sure what you wrote is good enough. The preview button can be found right next to the Save page button. It will also prevent a Recent Changes' clogging and any unnecessary server strain. Thank you. Masatoshitalk 04:12, 21 January 2013 (UTC)


Hi, I noticed you cited Serebii in your recent edit summaries. Serebii is a fansite, and is not a valid source of information. In the future, please research it on your own or get it from a valid source such as an official guide or site. Thanks. Crystal Talian 20:17, 22 January 2013 (UTC)


While updating my userpage just now, I accidentally added back my Player Characters and Partners for the Mystery Dungeon subsection in the Mystery Dungeon section of my box and did not cite it in my summary. I apologize for the oversight. I will remove them in the next update. I want to try to cut down on the amount of bytes that my userpage is using as much as possible, so that the server won't be stressed as much during busy periods. Dialgafan1 (talk) 05:15, 22 August 2015 (UTC)

Will remove the Valerie tag in the Gym Leaders subsection under Favorites and the Youtube tag in the Television & Movies in the box as well, those slipped past by me the first time. I also plan to remove a few some more tags in the next update in addition to the aforementioned. Dialgafan1 (talk) 06:11, 22 August 2015 (UTC)
