Welcome to Bulbapedia, Stinkfly3!

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. 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!

Section titles

Need to be sentence case, not title case. See Bulbapedia:Manual of style#Article titles. Thanks! --SnorlaxMonster 02:06, 24 December 2010 (UTC)

Sorry, but I REALLY was to edit my userspace. Stinkfly3 --Field the Torterra will always be my favorite! 02:08, 24 December 2010 (UTC)
So you're making many pointless edits so that you can edit your userspace? That is not how it works. If you continue to purposely make unproductive edits to build up your edit count so that you can edit your userspace, your userspace rights may be taken away. If you want to help out, try stubs or Special:WantedPages. Also, please keep comments on the same talk page. --SnorlaxMonster 02:12, 24 December 2010 (UTC)

A few things

Hi Stinkfly, there's a couple of things that should should know about how things work around here:

  1. Talk pages are for Bulbapedia-related discussion only. If you want to leave a message like this, email the user instead.
  2. Your signature must reflect your username. Please change it so that "Stinkfly3" is represented somehow. Thanks! たかはり 02:13, 24 December 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! ----無限の知性DENNOUZENSHI 20:40, 10 January 2011 (UTC)

It's only my userpage. Stinkfly3 --Field the Torterra will always be my favorite! 20:41, 10 January 2011 (UTC)

Yes. It's your userpage. Click the link in that message and read the policy page. Your ability to edit your userpage can and will be taken away if you edit it too much. Bulbapedia is an Encyclopedia, not a social networking site. As a consequence, you are expected to edit the mainspace (actual articles) and improve the encyclopedia more than you edit your userpage.

Talk Page Comments

Removing talk page comments, including the initial welcome template, is prohibited per Bulbapedia's talk page policy. Please do not remove any comments in the future. If you wish to clean old comments away, you should archive your talk page instead. Thank you! ----無限の知性DENNOUZENSHI 21:07, 10 January 2011 (UTC)

I was just about to post the same thing, :L Diamond Lanturn CodeName: 05308 21:09, 10 January 2011 (UTC)

Linking to pages that don't exist

Hi Stinkfly3. I notice that you are often linking to pages that don't exist on your userpage. Please do not do this, as it causes our software to put these pagenames on a list of neeed articles. As we don't need articles about the nicknames you gave to your Pokémon in Diamond and/or Black, I request that you leave the "nick" fields that PsychicRider put on your page. This is the correct way to display nicknames. Thank you. —darklordtrom 06:48, 17 February 2011 (UTC)

The delete template

Instead of blanking a page when you want it gone, place {{Delete}} on it. --rockersk08 22:29, 20 May 2011 (UTC)
