Welcome to Bulbapedia, Thunderboom!

As a new user, you may wish to learn a few things that will be useful in your editing:

  • For a basic overview of wiki code, see this page.
  • The manual of style is very important. Make sure to read it. It outlines all official policies of Bulbapedia.
  • The word Pokémon is spelled with a capital P and an accented é. The P, of course, is accessed easily by holding Shift and pressing the P key, while the é can be accessed using Alt + 130 or Alt + 0233 on a Windows computer, and Option + e, then e again on a Mac. Otherwise, you can click it in the character palette below the editbox.
  • The word Poké Ball is spelled as two words. The "Poké" part is identical to the four beginning letters in "Pokémon"; "Ball" is spelled with a captial B (which is, again, accessed by holding Shift and pressing the B key). The spelling "Pokéball" arises frequently, but is incorrect.
  • The word "you" and all forms of it should not be used on encyclopedic pages unless it is a quote from Pokémon media. Bulbapedia is an encyclopedia, not a walkthrough.
  • On talk pages, please sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).
  • The use of link templates is official policy. For an explanation on their use, see the page on shortlinks.
  • If you happen to spot a vandal in the recent changes that has not been dealt with, please see this page for how to deal with it.
  • A list of pages that are linked to, but have not been created, can be found at this page. A list of short articles that may require more information can be found here, while a list of articles that need improvement can be found here.
  • A list of the admins that you can contact in case of a problem, can be found here.

Thank you, and have a good time editing here! Ph34r4everTalk page 06:00, 6 February 2008 (UTC)

A bit of Graditude

Thanks, Ph34r4ever! (I mean, Optimus35!) (Darn those confusing tags...) Thunderboom 00:06, 8 February 2008 (UTC)

By the way, cool userpage! Ph34r4everTalk page 02:33, 8 February 2008 (UTC)
Thanks again! I think I'm the only one to think of using animated sprites. Did you like my Shadow Lugia sprite I made? Thunderboom 02:40, 8 February 2008 (UTC)
Yes but the Lucario sprite could have been done better...-sweatdrop- Ph34r4everTalk page 02:41, 8 February 2008 (UTC)
True, true. But I would need to see how the sprite looks in-game before I could make a better version. (I mean, I don't want it to just be Lucario's arms whipping back and forth way too fast.
It kind of just vibrates a little instead of moving back and forth. ティナ 03:05, 8 February 2008 (UTC)
How's this? Thunderboom (I have a kind of hard-to-use Animated GIF making program, which is why it's so choppy. I'll try to work on that, though.) 03:14, 8 February 2008 (UTC)

3rd one's closest to the real anim. ティナ 03:20, 8 February 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for helping me make one that looks good, you two!Thunderboom 03:21, 8 February 2008 (UTC)
And, Tina, thanks for the Sig help! Thunderboom 03:43, 8 February 2008 (UTC)

New Signature Policy

You can't use sig templates anymore. I would advise you to check out this talk page for further information.--Boywonder01 18:46, 21 June 2008 (UTC)

Blanking talk page

You can't do that. You may archive the conversations if you feel it is too cluttered. But you must have a link on your clean talk page that will link back to the archive. --ケンジガール 09:21, 29 September 2010 (UTC)

Well, that's unfortunate. But, it matters not that in my over 2 years' absence I had neglected to remember certain nuances of various policies. All the more reason to read up on them, I suppose. Thunderboom 09:35, 29 September 2010 (UTC)
