Welcome to Bulbapedia, Maii!

Here are a few links to help you get started:

The Manual of Style, or MoS, outlines the format of all pages on Bulbapedia.

All of our administrators are here to help! Talk to them if you have any questions or problems with Bulbapedia.

On talk pages, please sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~), or by using the "Your signature with a timestamp" (button_sig.png) button at the top of the edit window.

The Userspace Policy says that you should keep userspace edits (edits to User:Maii) to a minimum, and outlines a few other guidelines for your userspace.

For a complete list of policies and editing advice, please see the Welcome Portal.
 Thank you, and have a good time editing here!

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. Heavy editing of these personal pages can put undue stress on the server, so please leave your page alone for now and go help out in the mainspace. Bulbapedia is an encyclopedia, after all, so please help us to complete it! If you edit the mainspace more often, you will be allowed to edit your userpage more often too. Thanks! ----rockersk08 17:49, 15 October 2009 (UTC)

Sorry... But wait.. I edited my User page! But still... I'm sorry for being so annoying.--Maii 17:51, 15 October 2009 (UTC)Maii

Hold on!

If you did not read your last warning, then please read it now. You have edited the User: namespace too much. In the past, no one was allowed to edit their userpages because some users were over-editing their own userpages. Your personal editing privileges can be taken away, so please do not edit your page any more for now. Thank you. --♫Green♫ギャラドス♫Talk♫ 16:36, 16 October 2009 (UTC)

OH.Sorry. I just get too crazy with the user tags. I will make sure I stop editing my page for at least 1 week.--Maii 16:38, 16 October 2009 (UTC)Maii

You don't need to stop editing your page for a week, just please stop for today. The limit is four user page edits a day. Instead, why not use the preview button. Thank You!--♫Green♫ギャラドス♫Talk♫ 16:46, 16 October 2009 (UTC)

OK! I just joined so, I really can't seem to get the hold of it. Anyways I don't want to slow down the server.--Maii 16:48, 16 October 2009 (UTC)Maii

That's ok, just be careful about editing your page too much.--♫Green♫ギャラドス♫Talk♫ 16:49, 16 October 2009 (UTC)


Just a tip, as I see that you're trying to add stuff to the mainspace, which is great! We have some templates here that can be used in articles instead of linking with square brackets. For example, if you wanted to link to Bulbasaur as a species, you would type {{p|Bulbasaur}} instead of having to type [[Bulbasaur (Pokémon)]]. ([[Bulbasaur]], for the record, links to a disambiguation page, which is generally frowned upon.) For linking to a move, there's {{m}}, and for types, there's {{t}}... and there's a whole bunch more in the list of templates that I linked you! So try to use those from now on. :) 梅子 17:20, 16 October 2009 (UTC)

Thanks! I've been having big problems!--Maii 17:29, 16 October 2009 (UTC)Maii

You're quite welcome! And, as someone who only joined last month, I have to say that checking those links at the top of your talk page, as well as reading the stuff in the Welcome Portal is a HUGE help.
Also, if you want to indent your comment on talk pages (so that a list of comments looks prettier XD), just put a colon : at the beginning of your comment. Additional colons will indent it more
like this
and this
See? :) Good luck figuring everything out! 梅子 17:47, 16 October 2009 (UTC)
If you need any help, you can ask me on my talk page.--♫Green♫ギャラドス♫Talk♫ 18:04, 16 October 2009 (UTC)

The preview button

Please use it more often. That way you can see your changes before you save. Thanks. --ケンジガール 22:49, 19 October 2009 (UTC)

Ok. I'm really forgetful, sorry!--Maii 22:51, 19 October 2009 (UTC)Maii

User tags

When adding user tags to your page, write it as {{User Pokémon Special}} instead of copying the entire code from the template page. This will prevent your page from being categorized as a template. Thanks! --rockersk08 00:05, 21 October 2009 (UTC)

Thank you! I was wondering why when I went to usertags there's a category that says my username.--Maii 18:10, 21 October 2009 (UTC)Maii

Hold up

youve been making some good contributions, but you really gotta ease up on editing your userpage. just be aware that this is your third warning, and the next warning, you may be susceptible to your userspace privileges being removed. -- MAGNEDETH 17:44, 25 October 2009 (UTC)

I've only edited 3 times! I'll make sure I edit alot before editing my own userpage. How much should I edit, before editing my own space, anyway?--Maii 17:48, 25 October 2009 (UTC)Maii

theres no set limit "yet" but if you want a good benchmark, try making maybe 20 mainspace contribs to one userspace. ideally, we want users to spend significantly more time on mainspace pages than userspace. -- MAGNEDETH 00:50, 27 October 2009 (UTC)

OK! Got to start now! Good thing I'm playing pokemon platinum right now!C:--Maii 19:08, 27 October 2009 (UTC)Maii
