Welcome to Bulbapedia, Mash4eva!

Here are a few links to help you get started:

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

Our friendly team of staff 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.

On Bulbapedia, the ability to edit personal userpages is a privilege. Per our userpage policy, this must be earned by first making constructive edits to the mainspace. Once you can, remember to keep userspace edits (edits to User:Mash4eva) to a minimum.

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

Shipping articles

When you create a Shipping article, you must use a shipping redirect. Take PokéShipping for example. Also, if you don't have the time to make more than one sentence in the article, you probably shouldn't create the article. When you create an article, you should put more than just one sentence. --ケンジガール 18:16, 30 September 2010 (UTC)

Userspace limits

Hi. I noticed you have been editing the User: namespace a lot recently. Please don't do it any more, though. Bulbapedia's Userspace policy restricts the amount you can edit your userpage: no more than three edits per day. This policy was instated to prevent strain on our server, and also to promote people helping out in the mainspace. Bulbapedia is an encyclopedia, after all, so help us out by contributing to some articles before coming back to your personal userpage. The more often you edit in the mainspace, the more you will be allowed to edit your userpage. Thanks! --Psyライダー 19:45, 1 October 2010 (UTC)

Sorry, I'll try not edit my page like crazy anymore Mash4eva 00:02, 2 October 2010 (UTC)

You can also use the preview button rather than making many small edits. This is easier for both you and the server. OwnageMuch 04:31, 6 October 2010 (UTC)


Please try to improve your grammar when contributing to articles. Names of people are always capitalized. The same goes for Pokémon. And Pokémon is always with a capital P and an acute "e". Not "pokemon". --ケンジガール 22:02, 3 October 2010 (UTC)

Shipping hints

Also, please do not overly exaggerate Shipping hints. Ash and Iris were not trying to hug each while trying to escape from the hot water. And please don't add non-hints. Such as Iris and Ash relaxing in a hot spring together. He's done that with many of his friends. --ケンジガール 22:15, 3 October 2010 (UTC)

Shipping articles pt deux

Okay, this might become a problem. I let people add to that list on the Project page, yes. However, they don't do it too often, and I like it like that. Because there aren't many 'ships that deserve articles (and some may never be articles). And usually, they ask me if they aren't sure if a 'ship could be an article or not. Now, a lot of the 'ships you're putting up are simply popular. I don't exercise my Leader status on other people's talk pages often...or ever, but, I'll say this: you're not exercising the best judgment when it comes to what /you/ think makes a good, possible article. Popular =/= grounds to make an article. No, it needs a solid basis in canon (something that Againstshipping does not have, for example). And I don't think you know how to recognize that, seeing what you've tried to add.

All in all, please don't add 'ships to the Project page anymore without asking me first, anymore. And chances are, if you ask me, I will ask YOU to explain why you think it should be added. In great detail. You've going to have to convince me, because you're spamming that page. Luna Tiger * the Arc Toraph 04:25, 6 October 2010 (UTC)

Pokemon Wiki and Shipping

You can't categorise our articles into categories on a another website. Please don't do that to any more shipping articles. Thanks. たかはり 03:40, 17 October 2010 (UTC)

sorry i was just trying to add a link to the japanese verison of those pages Mash4eva 04:03, 17 October 2010 (UTC)

It already links to the article on the Japanese wiki. Look in the "In other languages" section below the toolbox. Categories don't (and shouldn't) work across wikis. If people want the articles in the other wiki's categories, they'll look for it from the other site. Similarly, people trying to use the categories on here don't want to have to wade through the articles in other languages as well. Werdnae (talk) 04:10, 17 October 2010 (UTC)

ok, i'll rember not to do that nest time Mash4eva 04:51, 17 October 2010 (UTC)

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. Instead, how about helping contribute to some of Bulbapedia's many articles? Thank you. ---- MAGNEDETH 20:37, 23 October 2010 (UTC)
