Welcome to Bulbapedia, Flame alex!

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.
  • 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. 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. 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:Flame alex/(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! --Shiningpikablu252 23:55, 26 June 2008 (UTC)

The town mottos are already listed in the infoboxes. They do not need to be placed in the trivia sections. ~$aturn¥oshi THE VOICES 20:04, 27 June 2008 (UTC)\

Not a problem, and happy editing! ~$aturn¥oshi THE VOICES 20:09, 27 June 2008 (UTC)


You really need to learn about link templates. Instead of [[Harrison (Johto League)|Harrison]], just put {{jo|Harrison}}. And there is absolutely no need to put [[Ash's Pikachu|Ash's Pikachu]]. That's just pointless and a waste of space. Just put it once; [[Ash's Pikachu]]. Oh and don't link to all of a trainers Pokémon when they don't exist. The only article that Harrison has for his Pokémon is his Blaziken. The other ones just linked to his page. You need to put {{p|Pokémon name}} when the article for a trainer's particular Pokémon doesn't exist.

For more link template use: see Bulbapedia:Shortlinks. --ケンジガール 03:11, 23 July 2008 (UTC)

Your signature

You need to fix your signature. It is linking to the mainspace when it should be linking to User:Flame alex. Please fix your preferences ASAP and you should be able to sign off with four tildes and have it be correct. MoldyOrange 15:51, 27 July 2008 (UTC)

You know....

Common courtesy says that it would be nice and helpful to the user to explain why you rejected the nomination.Good Day;DCM

he might not want to explain himself to you DCM. Im Max by the way from IPGL. --Guardian of Earth |SGMS 2010 18:51, 26 August 2008 (UTC)

i will explain it right here why i said no:just think there is better nominees than him, btw im flamealex from IPGL flame alex 19:26, 26 August 2008 (UTC)

I guessed LOL, there DCM he explained, are you happy now. --Guardian of Earth |SGMS 2010 19:37, 26 August 2008 (UTC)
That's not a very good reason. Sure, there are better nominees. But this isn't election. Anyone can become admin, any number of people. So 'better nominees' is not an acceptable reason. Θρtιmαtum♏Talk|Links13:09 27 Aug 2008
You mean User:ladysman9867? HE hasn't given a reason, either.--Blazevoir 18:25, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

Project Location

Heya, Flame alex. First, just letting you know that the Project Locations has changed quite a bit recently due to the instructions of the new Project Leader, me. The project has been updated and visually redesigned to make it easier to process. Little tasks and goals have been added to project page to make things run better and to help expand location articles. If you have any suggestions, inquiries, or questions, please don't hesitate to ask on the talk page.--Clarky13 11:44, 23 February 2009 (UTC)
