Policies and guidelines
Thank you and have a good time contributing!
Hi. Can you please remember to link to a source to every article you write. That way we can make sure all our reports are verifiable. Remember that other fan sites are usually not considered as reliable sources. —darklordtrom 21:11, 25 May 2011 (UTC)
- Thanks for providing a source with your last report, but it looked as if your original report was a copy-paste job (with a few changes) from another fansite. Please be aware that plagiarizing content for re-reporting on Bulbanews is unacceptable and avoid this in future. —darklordtrom 23:54, 6 July 2011 (UTC)
A reminder that you really should be providing a linked source with every report you submit. If your source is not online (i.e. a magazine) let me know. —darklordtrom 02:15, 10 September 2011 (UTC)
Regarding the draft that you submitted recently, do we have a single proof or any kind of source confirming it? The episodes usually go through the production process way before the series debut. So, it is completely speculative to say that Raimon has been redesigned or TR/TP special will premiere soon, unless you have a link to an authentic source. Please do not submit any news article that is based on highly inaccurate rumors. However, you're more than welcome to contribute if you have a link to a confirmed source. Thank you, have a nice day ahead. ♫♪AdyNiz♪♫ 05:08, 16 July 2011 (UTC)
Team Rocket vs Team Plasma
I traced back the source of that report. The Wikia user saw it on a comment on a Youtube video. I found the video, and the user said it came from pocketmonsters.net. It came from the page http://www.pocketmonsters.net/episodes/1243, but if you read the comments section, you will see that is just a guess. Also, we would never use the Pokémon Wiki as a source, not even for unconfirmed things. If you see something there which could be news, please track down the original source. --SnorlaxMonster 05:27, 13 August 2011 (UTC)
You didn't close your tag, so all comments on the page after yours end up in Verdana. Please fix this. --SnorlaxMonster 11:05, 10 September 2011 (UTC)
Team Rocket vs Team Plasma episodes
I know you have an interest in these episodes, but Bulbanews has no interest in publishing your articles about them when there is no news. A YouTuber saying that in his opinion it is too late and the episodes will never air is not news, as it has no bearing on whether or not they will air. Please stop trying to submit drafts on whether or not these episodes will air (unless there's actually news); you're just wasting your time and ours. --SnorlaxMonster 06:09, 18 August 2013 (UTC)
This was tweeted on BNN at the time. It's old news now, and staff have been occupied elsewhere in the meantime. George Hutcheon (talk) 21:06, 14 October 2013 (UTC)
Regarding your recent article
Hello, as you may have noticed I deleted the latest draft you submitted earlier today. For legality reasons, Bulbagarden is choosing to not acknowledge or report on any information that has been leaked or obtained through datamining or other questionable means. If you have any further questions, please contact a senior member of staff. Please understand that your continued contributions to Bulbanews are appreciated, so thank you for that! Have a good day. --Pokemaster97 20:22, 18 October 2016 (UTC)
RE: Sun and Moon on XD
Thanks for submitting the draft. I think we can still use it for a roundup/schedule listing article, but we will need to wait for two or three more days, so that we have the schedule for the first ten episodes and then we can publish it.
Now, I understand your frustration but please keep in mind that SnorlaxMonster or the staff in general has other priorities besides Bulbanews. Maybe they've time to get a particular news story out, but not enough time to fix and publish drafts submitted prior to that. So, complaining about it in edit summary or to other staff members won't resolve the issue. If it is something in need of immediate attention, then dropping one message to the concerned staff member would be enough. If they get around to it, they will handle it. Otherwise, they will pass the message when they have time.
Anyway, thanks for the draft again. But please try to be more patient. Have a nice day! Adil — Talk 19:57, 21 April 2017 (UTC)
- There you go. Luckily, we got the titles earlier than expected. Adil — Talk 21:52, 21 April 2017 (UTC)
