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!

Edit warring

If people disagree with your edit, please don't just keep trying to redo your edit and argue about it in the summaries. This is called edit warring and is a blockable offense. Instead, you should bring it up on the page's talk page or with the user you disagree with.

Regarding your edits to the Ice Stone page, four links to the same page in two short lines is definitely overkill. One link is just fine. (Please don't attempt to remove the original link just because you think that's the only other option.) If you still disagree, I'd suggest you bring it up on the talk page for the article.

Thanks. Tiddlywinks (talk) 00:44, 4 November 2017 (UTC)

Why does it matter if that's overkill? That's a completely redundant reason for undoing my edits. It looks more visually appealing than just having one word that's blue and the rest aren't. Lucario5623 (talk) 01:22, 4 November 2017 (UTC)
There's two basic policies you can follow. Link every term all the time, or only link the first one. (The only reasonable in-between is repeating a link somewhere if the first link is "far" off, which we do sometimes. Pretty much anything else could only be wildly subjective on how much is best.) If you ask me, having every term linked would only be a confusion of links. One is plenty for each page, as a rule. Certainly not four in practically one breath. Also, that kind of aesthetics is very subjective. Tiddlywinks (talk) 01:40, 4 November 2017 (UTC)
Well either way, none of this was mentioned when my edits were undone. However, I appreciate you informing me of this. I'm a new user (obviously) so I don't really know any of the rules and such. Lucario5623 (talk) 01:49, 4 November 2017 (UTC)
If you don't understand the reason for an edit being undone, that's a perfect reason to go talk to the other person. Edit summaries don't really make for good discussions. =P People are probably very willing to explain if you approach them about their reasoning; by contrast, edit warring, even when it's barely starting, is usually a little annoying.
Good luck, otherwise. Tiddlywinks (talk) 01:57, 4 November 2017 (UTC)
