Talk Page comments

Removing Talk Page comments including the welcome template is not allowed so I've undone your edit. Please don't remove anymore talk page comments in the future. Have a good day! --Pokemaster97 22:57, 4 December 2011 (UTC)

Oh, sorry I didn't know. I understand why you can't delete normal comments, but may I ask why it isn't allowed to remove the welcome template? --BaileyPlaysPokemon 23:10, 4 December 2011 (UTC)
I'm pretty sure it has to do with historical purposes. The welcome template shows when you made your account and it's useful if you ever need furthur information on a Bulbanews policy and other useful information. --Pokemaster97 23:24, 4 December 2011 (UTC)
Ah, makes sense. Thanks much! --BaileyPlaysPokemon 23:31, 4 December 2011 (UTC)

Style in articles

Hi Bailey. Rather than writing "the article states that..." in news reports, get straight into the point. The news we're reporting on is not the news that a press release has been published. The news is what the press release is about. —darklordtrom 07:30, 21 December 2011 (UTC)
