User talk:LeninlikersDrifloon


Welcome to Bulbapedia, LeninlikersDrifloon!

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:LeninlikersDrifloon/(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 17:46, 27 July 2008 (UTC)

Link Templates

Please use link templates when linking to stuff such as Pokémon names, attacks, and the like. For example, {{p|Arceus}} instead of just [[Arceus]]. 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. --Martonimos((Argh|Blargh)) 23:51, 27 July 2008 (UTC)

I'm gonna have to remind you to please use link templates and the preview button. TTEchidna 23:11, 28 September 2008 (UTC)

Mewtwo vs. Arceus

I sat down, added up all of Mewtwo's stats, and got 680. I'd like to know how you got 728; maybe we can figure out what you did wrong. --Martonimos((Argh|Blargh)) 23:59, 27 July 2008 (UTC)

Mewtwo has Special in Gen I. Likely added that by mistake. TTEchidna 23:20, 28 September 2008 (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. Instead of editing the userspace, as a wiki, we encourage users to edit the mainspace. So, if you edit the mainspace more often, you will be allowed to edit the userspace more. Thanks! ----freezingCOLD (page, talk) 20:33, 17 April 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. Thank you. ----freezingCOLD (page, talk) 20:48, 17 April 2009 (UTC)


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 it the userspace will be removed. ----freezingCOLD (page, talk) 20:59, 17 April 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. -- |3urn 57R1K3 23:17, 17 April 2009 (UTC)

But that's just stupid. That's like the inability to delete user accounts. Restriction of freedom. I'm not an expert on how Wikis should be run, but I don't need to be to know this is wrong.

Also, who are you to decide who I do and do not want to end up like? I believe that is up to me, not you. I would recommend cutting down on the patronization and baseless assumptions if I were you. But it is only a recommendation, I do not wish to come across as hypocritical. - unsigned comment from LeninlikersDrifloon (talkcontribs)

Here's a deal. To learn more about Wiki editing here in Bulbapedia, lurk around. And seriously, read some policies here, and read that Welcome text. It would surely help. About the deletion of talk page contents, read this please. Thanks, Kevzo8 14:04, 18 April 2009 (UTC)
I have read the policies, and I am in full awareness of what they entail. I am merely pointing out the ineffective nature of said policies. I know several users of Bulbapedia who no longer hold any respect for this site due to their inability to delete their accounts. LeninlikersDrifloon
Dude, NO wiki can delete accounts!!! Get used to it. --Theryguy512 15:18, 18 April 2009 (UTC)
"OBEY!" I am not going to get used to it, this is becoming rather superficial. I can really see no compulsion to continue contributing to this site, it is obvious the element of absoluteness rules.

P.S. To ensure your target reader takes your feedback seriously, I would consider lessening the bold format. Take that as a personal attack on your presentation if you want, ban, block or whatever. Whatever happens to this account is immaterial (and I am not intending to create sockpuppets). - unsigned comment from LeninlikersDrifloon (talkcontribs)
