Um hi i just joined. and I um uh... HI BYE!!!--Machamp ion 20:56, 24 August 2007 (UTC)


You kinda didn't type them in right. It's {{User LeafGreen}}, not {{user leafgreen}}. Capitalization and correct wikicode will help you a lot, as you could note from your last edit of the page on alternate coloration... you forgot to close the chart, and you put the pink Butterfree in the space for what I like to call "row-spanning formatting". For example, say you have a chart that goes like this:

! Pokémon
! Kanto Dex
! Johto Dex
! Hoenn Dex
! Sinnoh Dex
|- bgcolor="#{{grass color}}"
| Bulbasaur
| 001
| 226
| ---
| ---
|- bgcolor="#{{fire color}}"
| Charmander
| 004
| 229
| ---
| ---
|- bgcolor="#{{water color}}"
| Squirtle
| 007
| 232
| ---
| ---
|- bgcolor="#{{electric color}}"
| Pikachu
| 025
| 022
| 156
| 104

That's the raw coding for what appears below. Notice how the |} appears at the end, which you left out, and how each entry has either a "!" or a "|" before it, depending on if it's to be a header or just an entry.

Pokémon Kanto Dex Johto Dex Hoenn Dex Sinnoh Dex
Bulbasaur 001 226 --- ---
Charmander 004 229 --- ---
Squirtle 007 232 --- ---
Pikachu 025 022 156 104

See, this is because if you accidentally leave out the |}, you end up with what appears below:

Pokémon Kanto Dex Johto Dex Hoenn Dex Sinnoh Dex
Bulbasaur 001 226 --- ---
Charmander 004 229 --- ---
Squirtle 007 232 --- ---
Pikachu 025 022 156 104

Doesn't this mess everything up?

And now on to usertags

Hey look, it's still in the yellow box that has Pikachu's Sinnoh Dex number! This is why it's important to close these things: the rest of the page below it gets stuck in the chart.

Anyway, what you should really do is put "<div class="userbox" style="width: 230pt;">" before any and all usertags, and then after all of them, put "</div>" This confines them to the right side of the page. Now if anything's gonna mess up this "in the yellow area" text, it'll be me doing this...

  This user's favorite Pokémon is Missingno..
  This user lieks Mudkipz.
  This user is a player of Pokémon Red Version.
  This user is a player of Pokémon FireRed Version.
  This user loves Dawn.

And if you don't close that thing... well, crap, you're stuck with the rest of the page in that too.

I would assume that you don't really want that... but hey, some type in their usertag area... I'd just recommend closing these things, they'll screw with your formatting after the box if you forget to. This concludes my demonstration of "how to screw up formatting". You can fix it if you like so it doesn't look like this beyond my example. TTEchidna 19:10, 28 August 2007 (UTC)

Thanks. But the bad chart makes me feel bad. :( ):

Well, fixed it now is. TTEchidna 07:14, 5 September 2007 (UTC)


You should put {{User Starter|004|Charmander}} and {{User Favorite|045|Golbat}} to get what you were trying to get. --Shiny Noctowl Find the secret page! The oboe is the best instrument ever! 21:53, 31 August 2007 (UTC)


Golbat's National Dex number is 42, not 45. --Shiny NoctowlTalk|Trivia quiz 20:53, 4 September 2007 (UTC)

hehehehehehehehehe uh thanks.

Steve Irwin Template

I noticed that ugly Steve Irwin tag and thought I'd make you one just to be nice. It even links to the Wikipedia article! Just copy and paste it onto your user page. Here you go:

  This user liked Steve Irwin

:) -Politoed666 01:47, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

Thank You. I didn't make that. I used a Feraligatr pic and then typed my text but thank you.--Machamp ion 01:50, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

Hey! Take a look at this!

  This user liked Steve Irwin.

The code is "User Steve". It's not exactly the same as yours, but it'll do, right? --悪臭の人 14:28, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

Yup. It's not quite as flashy, but it's a LOT easier to type. -Politoed666 01:23, 14 September 2007 (UTC)

Really, all the credit goes to Shiny Noctowl. He had the original pic and text, I just copied, and you guys made the template. How do you make templates?--Machamp ion 14:23, 15 September 2007 (UTC)

I had the original pic and text. ShinyNoctowl copied it from me --User:Theryguy512

Ok. Do you guys mind me going to your pages and coping your user boxes?--Machamp ion 14:49, 15 September 2007 (UTC)

Accent the é

Please. Always always always. TTEchidna 03:23, 5 October 2007 (UTC)

Sorry--Machamp ion 19:05, 5 October 2007 (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. 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! --PsychicRider 16:51, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

~Sorry! Just experimenting with tags!
