• Hello all! The forum staff have introduced a new rule set. We've reduced the number of rules, made trick language easier to understand, and have hopefully simplified the rules to make understanding them easier. Please have a read over the new forum rules here.
  • Hey guys! Have you heard? We now have popup
    Yes, Popups!
    messages for your forum posts. Learn more about it here!
  • Hey everyone, if you hadn't heard, information about Sword and Shield has been leaking. Outside of the designated threads in our Current Events section, please keep all unrevealed Pokemon, names, or any other information in spoiler tags. This policy will be in effect until January 3rd. This is an exciting time for Pokémon fans, enjoy yourselves!
  • Recently, some of our fellow Pokémon fan sites have received legal requests to take down leaked Sword and Shield images. We have not received one of these requests yet, but we are taking some preemptive measures to stay on the safe side. We ask that from now until the games release (November 15th) that you do not post any new leaked images anywhere on the forums.

How do I know if I am autoconfirmed?

I really want to be an image supplier for Bulbapedia, so I started contributing to a ton of pages. Before, I could not access the upload page due to not being autoconfirmed. Now, however, I can. The only thing is that I get a message saying "You do not have permission to make a new page" every time I try to upload an image for a page that I want to contribute to. I tried creating a forum page, and it worked. However, I still cannot upload due to that error message. Please help!

@EACreator1; You can view the usergroups you belong in via Special:preferences.

However, I should note that being autoconfirmed on Bulbapedia doesn't make you autoconfirmed on Bulbanews or the Bulbagarden Archives. Each one's usergroups are separate, so helping out on each of the three wikis must be done in order to become "globally" autoconfirmed.

@Kogoro How would I contribute to the archives? Do I have to help with the to-do list, or do I have to contribute to something else?

There are several ways one can contribute before being able to upload themselves, such as; clarifying file summaries, adding missing categories to file pages, or simply making upload requests to a staff member if you have something you want uploaded.

We can put up requests? Thanks for telling me about that!
