Must you?

As much as there is no strict userpage policy here (since barely anyone goes here for that purpose anyway), DO NOT edit your page too much. Maybe like two or three is fine, but fifteen?! Also, no to the user tag; take this one up with the higher ups. tc²₆tc26 11:26, 22 September 2011 (UTC)

The preview button

Welcome to Bulbanews, Alipikachu.

When editing a page, please try to use the "Show preview" button in order to check the changes you've made, rather than repeatedly saving each individual change. This way, you'll be able to get the page exactly as you want it before saving it. This is easier on the servers, and also means that the Recent Changes list doesn't become clogged up with minor edits. This is especially the case with userpages, as these are not an essential part of the site, and we would prefer it if edits to them are kept to the minimum.

I hope this is helpful to you. However, if you continue to edit in this manner, I will unfortunately have to take further action. Please contact me if you have any questions. George Hutcheon 11:31, 22 September 2011 (UTC)

It's fine if you're not familiar with how the wikicode and templates work, but instead of saving a page after each change, use the "Show Preview" button. This will show the changes you've made so far, and allow you to make more if you wish. You can do this as many times as you like before saving the page. George Hutcheon 13:47, 22 September 2011 (UTC)
