User talk:Istiyaq

Welcome to Bulbapedia, Istiyaq!

By creating your account you are now able to edit pages, join discussions, and expand the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia. Before you jump in, here are some ground rules:

  • Be nice to everyone. It's in the code of conduct.
  • Make good edits. Preview them before you save to make sure they're perfect the first time around.
  • Use wikicode and link templates when adding content to a page.
  • Use proper grammar and spelling, and read the manual of style.
  • You can't create a userpage until you've added to the encyclopedia. It's a privilege. See the userspace policy.
  • Use talk pages to resolve editing disputes. Don't "edit war," or constantly re-edit/undo the same thing on a page.
  • If you have a question about something, be proactive. Take a look at our FAQ. If you're still stuck, ask for help. The staff won't bite.
  • Sign all talk page posts with four tildes (~~~~). This will turn into your name and the time you wrote the comment.
  • For more handy links, see the welcome portal.
Thank you, and have a good time editing here!

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 Page button. Please try it out, so as not to clog up the Recent Changes. Also, if you want to edit multiple sections of the page, make sure that you click "edit this page" at the top of the page rather than editing it by section. Thanks! --→ PikaTepig999 11:33, 8 December 2019 (UTC)

Talk page usage

Hey! I noticed you're creating new sections on talk pages by editing the latest current sections, like what you did with Talk:S11. Instead of doing that, you should use the + sign at the top of a talk page, which will allow you to create your own section automatically. Thank you.

Greetings. Would you mind explaining why you share an IP address with COW123, a user who was recently blocked for making vandal edits? Please note that you are only authorized to have one account on Bulbapedia. If you created a second account to vandalize, this account will be blocked indefinitely as well. However, if you can verify the relation you have with this user, the block may be lessened, but I wanted to give you the opportunity to respond first. No response will be an assumption that the accounts are indeed one in the same, and I'll have to proceed with blocking this one as well. Looking forward to hearing from you. Thank you. --Pokemaster97 18:55, 27 January 2020 (UTC)

Has this already been resolved? GrammarFreak01 (talk) 03:21, 1 February 2020 (UTC)
Seeing as this has gone unnoticed for five days, I have given you a three day block with the ability to edit your talk page to explain this matter. If you don't explain yourself within the three days, then this account and COW123 will be assumed the same person and blocked indefinitely.--ForceFire 06:36, 1 February 2020 (UTC)
Perhaps they don't know how? ¿¡Unowninator?! (talk) 18:18, 1 February 2020 (UTC)
The Cow is my older brother and his name is Nahid. I did not know he had created an account. He has just told me that he has created an account, and was messing about on the pages. Istiyaq (talk) 10:55, 2 February 2020 (UTC)
Is ParisDude123 also your brother?--ForceFire 12:36, 2 February 2020 (UTC)
Who the heck is ParisDude123 Istiyaq (talk) 13:21, 2 February 2020 (UTC)
A user blocked as a sockpuppet of COW123, specifically. Is your brother still fooling around? GrammarFreak01 (talk) 23:08, 2 February 2020 (UTC)
They made similar edits to COW123 (in that they vandalized the same pages COW123 vandalized) and share the same computer details as COW123.--ForceFire 04:28, 3 February 2020 (UTC)
Well he said he don't know anyone called ParisDude123 Istiyaq (talk) 06:57, 3 February 2020 (UTC)
Does anyone else have access to your computers? GrammarFreak01 (talk) 08:05, 3 February 2020 (UTC)
That's not necessary GrammarFreak. I get you're trying to help, but these things should be left with staff to handle. Istiyaq, that's fair enough. Just make sure it doesn't happen again, we do not tolerate anyone vandalizing the site just for fun.--ForceFire 12:22, 3 February 2020 (UTC)

User Page

How did you edit your user page, I can't. Can you please tell me . DarkDan 19:02, 6 February 2020 (UTC)

I actually don't know. It just happened. Sorry :( Istiyaq (talk) 19:04, 6 February 2020 (UTC)
I think you need to be autoconfirmed to be able to create and edit a userpage. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 12:17, 16 February 2020 (UTC)
Return to the user page of "Istiyaq".
