Digimon v.s. Pokemon section

A while ago, I updated the Pokemon and Digimon section, pointing out that Digimon tends to borrow more from the Mecha/Super Robo genre and pointed out several mecha references. This was removed for what is currently in place. I thought my addition was a good bit of Information, could anyone inform me why it wasn't such a good addition to the article? Granis 00:15, 18 July 2007 (UTC)

It would be much easier to answer your question if we knew precisely what you had added, but according to your contributions page, you don't seem to have altered Digimon at all. If you altered it while using another account or an anonymous IP, could you tell us what day you edited the article.
Oh yeah: next time, add your thread to the bottom of the talk page, not the top. You Can't See Me! 06:19, 18 July 2007 (UTC)


Why does it say this? Its coming out August 2007 in the USA. 19:14, 4 February 2007 (UTC)

Do you have a source for this? If so, add it to the article. -- Ned Scott 19:48, 4 February 2007 (UTC)

The news was announced on Apr 23 -- -- Savers will be on Jetix in the Fall.

Original Digimon Pages

Got a question, why on the individual digimon pages, it says that the original digimon partners lost the ability to digivolve to their ultimate forms? In the final episode, they learned that the crest's power was inside THEM, not the crest, therefore, they were able to redigivolve to defeat Apocylomon (cant spell it -.-). Also later on, in Season 2, Angemon was able to digivolve to Magnaangemon, so, why is this stated that they lost the ability? :/ Just because only Angemon did in season 2, doesn't mean that they did, just that it was never needed. Myzou 10:03, 10 February 2007 (UTC)

Because that's what it says. There's an episode in digimon adventure 02 where there's a flashback of the 8 original digi-destined coming back to the digital world. And they're releasing the power of their crests to restore the digital world (after all the damamge the dark masters and apocylomon did). ANd one of them (i think it was TK or kari) explains that in order to restore the digital world, they and their digimon had to sacrifice the power of their crests, meaning the digimon where no longer able to reach the ultimate form.
It does seem to contradict what happens at the end of Digimon Adventure, when the digi-destined realized they didn't need crests. But it was very explictly stated in Digimon Adventure 02 that the original digimon partners lost the power to digivolve to ultimate.
Angemon digivolves to magnaangemon once in 02, and IIRC, it was when Angemon fell onto one of the destiny stones. And the power from the broken destiny stone allowed Angemon to digivolve. Later on, Azulongmon's power allows the digimon to digivolve to ultimate again. But the crest powers are gone. --`/aksha 10:40, 10 February 2007 (UTC)
Specifically, the episode is #27, "Fusion Confusion" (ja: "Unstoppable Evolution, Paildramon"). It's even mentioned in the summary in the episode list.Circeus 16:46, 10 February 2007 (UTC)

Main article and anime article merged

After looking at the two articles there really was only two sections in Digimon: Digital Monsters that this article didn't have, and a lot of redundant information. Merging the two doesn't actually look too bad, and the article isn't too large, IMO. I think it makes for a stronger core-topic article. The anime article was just left over from the time when all the anime series shared that one page, before they were split off. I think the flow of information is less confusing this way and looks better too. Thoughts? -- Ned Scott 09:24, 24 February 2007 (UTC)

My thought is that your thought was a good thought. ^_^ Indiawilliams 23:28, 26 February 2007 (UTC)


When exactly will this new Digimon season be aired in the United States? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 20:14, 2 March 2007 (UTC).

No one knows. There's been rumors that it would air this summer but so far there's no confirmation it'll even be aired in the US. Indiawilliams 18:15, 5 March 2007 (UTC)
The Fifth season of Digimon is set to air in the fall of 2007 on Toon Disney's Jetix block (Unfortunately for those who do not have premium cable -.-). Caterfree10 03:46, 19 June 2007 (UTC)

Digimon Airing Time

I was thinking wouldnt it be a good idea to add on the digimon main page when its aired? i know that its 8:00 in auustralia on toasted tv digimon this a good idea? blitzer natu 01:26, 8 April 2007 (UTC)

I don't think that there is much point as what time a show airs can change every month. Wild ste 16:17, 16 May 2007 (UTC)

Hey, we need to remember time zones, here. The page says 8:30 pm. Where I live, it was 5: 17:08, 6 October 2007 (UTC)

Pokémon and Digimon

The article says Pokemon has no tamagochi games. Don't these things count? I remember them being mentioned in the Pokemon Gold manual and seeing them at stores (additionally, I wanted one, but I never got one T-T). Jaimeastorga2000 07:42, 8 April 2007 (UTC)

Another thing, in Japan, Digimon came out 5 years before Pokemon. In America, the time difference was 1 year. I don't get why "people" think Pokemon came first. Sabre Knight 17:54, 18 May 2007 (UTC)

The Digimon virtual pet came out in 1997. Pocket Monsters Red and Green came out in '96 and would have been released in '95 had it not been for a toy series with a similar name. Anyways, is the Pokemon and Digimon section really necessary? It's completely unsourced OR. In fact, I've never known of an official source to make this comparison. It's always seemed more like a fan rivalry thing. Oh, and yes, the Pikachu tamagotchi things do seem similar enough to Digimon Virtual Pets for a comparison (which is, again, completely OR). You Can't See Me! 06:24, 26 May 2007 (UTC)
I agree. It is a rather useless section and doesn't really contribute all that much. Perhaps better as a separate article? Caterfree10 03:48, 19 June 2007 (UTC)

The reason people think Pokemon came out first is probably because Pokemon is 1) More popular (So they hear about Pokemon first) and 2) Digimon had a few years between the finale of season 4 and the premier of season 5. With pokemon, It was a couple of months, at most. 17:11, 6 October 2007 (UTC)

...Or, it could be because Pocket Monsters Red and Green actually did release a year before the Digimon virtual pet. You Can't See Me! 19:06, 6 October 2007 (UTC)

Very true, but still... (talk) 22:03, 23 February 2008 (UTC)


None of the Digimon articles seem to be able to make up their minds whether to italicize the series titles (Digimon Adventure, Digimon Frontier, etc.). On one hand, it makes sense: the titles of television series are always italicized. On the other hand, in many places, these aren’t. Is this a deliberate decision, or a result of some pandemic laziness? —Frungi 02:45, 9 April 2007 (UTC)

There are many articles and not all of them were italicised to begin with. I went through all of them at first but didn't know about the WP:MOS so I didn't italicise them. So, I guess, laziness, but you can always fix it yourself. x42bn6 Talk 13:00, 9 April 2007 (UTC)
I was going to, but they’re unitalicized so frequently (in most of the article, in fact) that I wasn’t sure if it wasn’t supposed to be so. —Frungi 13:11, 10 April 2007 (UTC)

What happened to the List of Digimon page?

Well, what happened to it... —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs).

Movie Question

1) How many movies from Digimon have been released in the US, and 2) Will any more be released in the near future? 19:08, 30 November 2007 (UTC)

About the digimon manga Liscened by Tokyo Pop

The digimon manga liscensed by Tokyo Pop, ie: Digimon Adventures, 02, Tamers are not really manga but Manwa and are actually the interpretation of the series from the view of the artist. In other words its not cannon material, and should be viewed as something similar to a doujinshi. It is also not recognized by Bandai or Toei. Essentially Tokyo Pop liscensed a doujinshi and not a actual manga created and recognized by the original creators as cannon material. So we shouldn't view any information stated in those manwa that was not any databooks, cd drama, manga, games, or the show itself as canon as it is something that the artist made up. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Jazz189 (talkcontribs) 03:21, 6 December 2007 (UTC)

Centralized TV Episode Discussion

Over the past months, TV episodes have been reverted by (to name a couple) TTN, Eusebeus and others. No centralized discussion has taken place, so I'm asking everyone who has been involved in this issue to voice their opinions here in this centralized spot, be they pro or anti. Discussion is here [1]. --Maniwar (talk) 00:17, 16 January 2008 (UTC)

You might notice that Digimon doesn't have episode articles.. -- Ned Scott 02:52, 16 January 2008 (UTC)

Notable Persons addition?

Grace Anderson (aka Megchan) served as the translator for the movies and for the first four TV series (up through Frontiers). She was not credited on the show, and her IMDB entry only mentions one of the films, but I consider myself a fairly reliable source as I am her husband.

As such I am only slightly biased towards her importance to the show. It's safe to say that if they hadn't hired her they've have hired someone else, but in the end it was she who did the work.

I'll leave it to the mods to decide if she should be included in the list. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:48, 2 March 2008 (UTC)

I know she was an invaluable help to the fan community, at the least. I can't see any reason not to include her, but there is a problem with sourcing - Wikipedia doesn't allow first person sourcing like her or her husband. However, if you could provide or write citation tags for even the meagerest of documentation, that would certainly be enough, and we'd be happy to add her name to the article.Not even Mr. Lister's Koromon survived intact. 18:26, 2 March 2008 (UTC)
Well, exactly. I wouldn't expect Wikipedia to take my word for it (hell, how do I even prove I'm her husband?). I'll see if I can find the info somewhere. Thanks! —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:52, 3 March 2008 (UTC)
Here's a link which lists her anime work, including the Digimon series and movies. Notable? I couldn't tell ya, but it's something, yes? :) —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:57, 3 March 2008 (UTC)
That should be enough. Add in however you want the sentence to read, and then put <ref>[ Grace Anderson's Anime Credits], retrieved from Anime News Network, 03/02/08.</ref> after the period.
She worked on Flint and Transformers: RiD? I loved those shows!Not even Mr. Lister's Koromon survived intact. 03:16, 3 March 2008 (UTC)


A very common occurrence and seems to happen frequently between the two series is confusion of the distinction of one from another. Would anyone object if i added {{distinguish|Pokémon}} to the top of the article? Simply south (talk) 15:58, 3 March 2008 (UTC)

It should be easy enough to distinguish just from the first few sentences - the confusion only really happens with people who know "Pokemon", only heard of the name "Digimon", and have off-the-cuff dismissed it. Anyone else searching for the article by name really wouldn't have that confusion, I think, and those who've already dismissed it pretty much won't be looking for more info. Then again, this is all my ramblings, so if anyone else supports the addition, go for it. I can't really see any similarity between the series besides having "mon" in the title, though.Not even Mr. Lister's Koromon survived intact. 18:36, 3 March 2008 (UTC)

External links

Is it ok if I add a link to Digimon Wiki ( to the external links section (unless its already there and I missed it)? (talk) 06:57, 23 April 2008 (UTC)

Please do. Kuro Woof 13:46, 23 April 2008 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Kurowoofwoof111 (talkcontribs)

No connection

I object to saying Frontier has no connection to other seasons. Kazu, from Tamers, was seen in one of JP's flashbacks. Kazu's name was also mentioned at the time. In another episode, when they were looking for the Toucanmon, Gallantmon was seen and spoke with both Takato's and Guilmon's voice. In Zoe's flashback, some keychains with Wormmon were seen. This shows that digimon were known in the human world at one time. (talk) 18:19, 16 May 2008 (UTC)

"Testicles" in Digimon

Is there any particular reason that words like "testacles", "sex", and "rape" are listed under the "Digimon" section of an article likely viewed by thousands of children? I just randomly searched for this subject heading and noticed the description. I am not a fan and would correct the information if I knew anything about the show but I don't so I'm hoping that one of you guys would be willing to change the description of this series. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Nikotene24 (talkcontribs) 07:18, 12 June 2008 (UTC)

First released

If you are going to be the predictable "idk what you are talking about" person then I have the following instructions. Enter the article of which this talk page belongs to. In FireFox hold down "Ctrl" and "F" at the same time. Then copy ("Ctrl" and "V" at the same time) and paste ("Ctrl" and "P" at the same time) the following text: Digimon started out as a digital pet called "Digital Monster," similar in style and concept to the Tamagotchi. It was planned by Wiz and released by Bandai on June 26, 1995. You are now presented with the text I am talking about. Ok, so this line says it was released June 26 1995, but the article it links to (Digimon virtual pet just in case you were lost in the previous steps) says that it was first released 1997 (that is the year 1997). So which one is correct, because they are 2 years apart, which cannot be accurate. Maybe 2 seconds apart would be OK, but for an encyclopedia to contradict itself by 2 ENTIRE years seems a little too much to me. JayKeaton (talk) 13:41, 9 August 2008 (UTC)

I hope it's 1995. Just saying! —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:19, 19 August 2008 (UTC)

Foreign versions

The article states that the German dub was completely uncut and uncensored from the original. This isn't exactly true. Ending sequences were cut down and Renamon had her gender changed...I don't think you can still say uncut.


Since this is an article on the Digimon property, many categories don't belong. I moved the animanga categories to Category: Digimon anime and manga. The "TV shows by network" go in the TV show articles and the "Tokyopop titles" category goes in the article on the Digimon manga published by Tokyopop.--Nohansen (talk) 15:52, 26 August 2008 (UTC)

Okay, sorry for reverting then.Not even Mr. Lister's Koromon survived intact. 20:07, 26 August 2008 (UTC)

Digimon articles

I remember a while ago, each Digimon had its own article. However, now, most of them are simply redirects to List of Digimon. Why is this? -- (talk) 11:53, 15 August 2009 (UTC)

Most of the pages were probably redirected because the individual Digimon characters did not meet Wikipedia's notability standards. You can go to List of Digimon at Digimon Wiki for a nearly complete list. Looking closer at a few, the character articles were redirected to lists and some were probably only ever on these lists. I think all of the following:
as well as a few lists that were redirected to parent lists such as List of Digimon Adventure 02 minor characters. The lists were then soft redirected to Digimon Wiki after this AFD as a hold over until the articles could be moved there. (see this edit for instance) After that, the lists were redirected to List of Digimon presumably because that is where the notable character descriptions should be. The article should not just be a list to other articles so the fact that most of the links on List of Digimon redirect back to itself was probably never thought about. This, of course, is now a huge mess that needs to be fixed. All the lists that are still around are at Category:Lists of Digimon characters. RP9 (talk) 15:43, 17 August 2009 (UTC)


Does anyone think the rivalry of the Digimon media franchise with Pokémon is notable enough for inclusion in this article? Tezero (talk) 01:56, 11 December 2009 (UTC)

Are there reliable sources for such a "rivalry"? —Farix (t | c) 02:44, 11 December 2009 (UTC)
So far, I haven't seen or heard of anything about it. In fact, Pokemon and Digimon never really came face-to-face. The only "rivalry" I've seen so far is among some of the fans—not exactly something worth mentioning. Besides, the only similarities between the two franchises are 1) both have "mon" for "monster" at the end of their names and 2) with the exception of Digimon Frontier and X-Evolution, both involve humans pairing up with non-human creatures (though in the case of Digimon, all Digidestined except Willis have only one Digimon; in Pokemon, trainers have several Pokemon). Everything else is as different as apples from oranges.--Twilight Helryx 20:03, 13 December 2009 (UTC)
All right. I was under the impression that this was a more prominent issue. Carry on. Tezero (talk) 05:12, 14 December 2009 (UTC)

I want to ask, why it's only pokemon who gets edit protection while it's the fact that already showed us gazilion times that almost any Digimon-related articles get vandalism everyday? please, make at least "Digimon" (don't need to protect Digimon-related article) article protected so we can sit and breath peacefully. I've glad that yesterday Digimon was finally become a semi-prootected article, but why now it is removed again? —Preceding unsigned comment added by De of Sincerity (talkcontribs) 07:48, 5 February 2010 (UTC)

Actually, I have found a source for the series' rivalry: here. It refers to Pokémon as Digimon '​s "constant competition and comparison". Tezero (talk) 16:10, 29 March 2010 (UTC)

Yes, but that is a video game, not the franchise itself. If anything, it should be under the reception part of the respective game's page. --YamiMario (talk) 22:25, 25 July 2010 (UTC)
It's on an article specifically about one game, but it's talking about the franchise itself. Tezero (talk) 03:05, 26 July 2010 (UTC)

When I read the 'conception and creation' piece, the part where it mentions why it was brought to the United States and the citation for this is rather misleading, i.e. it comes off that the only reason it was created/conceived is because of this "kids liked cartoons with cool monsters wailing on each other, and they seemed to like the big-eyes thing, too" assertion. Is this true? I examined the citation itself and it reads more like a satire than what I originally expected. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:22, 24 August 2010 (UTC)

That says why it was brought to the US. I don't think there's anything against using words that are from an external journalist rather than from someone directly related. However, I guess I only added it because of the lack of something better, so I'll remove it now. Tezero (talk) 17:54, 24 August 2010 (UTC)

Season Six

Hi, there was nowhere else to add this but can someone tell me why whenever I add information (such as DIGIMON AROUnD info) who thinks they have the right to delete it? It's still Digimon related, it's more close to confirmed... all that counts is this is a Digimon section for all to edit, so stop changing it! —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:09, 17 December 2009 (UTC)

It was removed because if fails Wikipeida's core policy of verifiability though reliable sources, which is non-negotiable. —Farix (t | c) 12:10, 17 December 2009 (UTC)
I don't even know how to add those little numbers and source links I'm still learning but so far, could there not be a rumours section, as they exist in the Digimon community and if I find out how, add links to the origins of these rumours or evidence of where they exist? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:31, 19 December 2009 (UTC)
I'm the one who edited it this time. Rumors don't mean much on wikipedia. Until Bandai confirms this new series, you shouldn't go around mentionning it, since for all we know, it is fake and you're just helping spread falsehood. GodShiru (talk) 01:02, 28 December 2009 (UTC)

Can someone change 'eponymous' to something a little more natural?

Odd image in video game section

I've played Digimon World 3 and that's clearly not a screenshot from the game as the image labels itself to be, in fact it is a poorly shooped image. For one, that is not the battle interface that Digimon 3 uses, secondly those aren't the graphics the game uses, thirdly the portrait of the protagonist and foe shown in the image are from Digimon World 2. Though the origins of this particular image has me curious, was it made in speculation of what Digimon 3 would be like in hopes of being a sequel to Digimon World 2? Or what one thought it should have been like? Or simply just for fun? I'd like some information on the image but I assume others may be as clueless as myself. Anyway if someone could change the image to represent an actual Digimon game, please do. I would do it myself but one edit isn't enough for me to justify having an account here that would most likely sit and rot afterward. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:29, 18 March 2011 (UTC)

I didn't make it, I just found it on the internet quickly because I thought there should be an image, and never thought much about it. Could you give me a URL to a better image that doesn't have a logo of IGN, GameSpy, etc. in it? Tezero (talk) 14:51, 19 March 2011 (UTC)
It is most likely a screenshot from the beta or alpha versions of the game rather than the final one. ggctuk (2005) (talk) 20:00, 19 March 2011 (UTC)

Date Differences

I noticed that in the history, it has the release date for the Digimon virtual pet as June 26, 1996, but in the Virtual Pet section as a year later, in 1997. Do we know which one is correct?

Jats605 (talk) 18:24, 22 April 2011 (UTC)

As far as I know, it's 1997. There are almost no reliable sources for that early in Digimon history, though. Tezero (talk) 19:04, 11 September 2011 (UTC)

Pokemon and Digimon comparison

This is just an idea, but what about a page with an ojective comparison between Pokemon and Digimon?

ahh NO i would rather die then see that pokemon is crap now those days sure maybe the first 3 seasons was ok but comparing them is not right and should not be done if it was you might get alot of digimon fans to trash the link --Wjmdem (talk) 21:06, 11 January 2013 (UTC)

I Agree with the original unsigned comment. I was looking for a quick comparison on release dates for pokemon and digimon and there is absolutely no mention about it here. Was digimon created to purposely compete with pokemon? Was it the other way around? What's the story? (talk) 07:32, 20 February 2013 (UTC)

hmmm where to start ok think about this both was making their brand pokemon hit the market first digimon was second but when i look at digimon i think they took more time developing it so the way i see it digimon was never trying to copy pokemon *--Wjmdem (talk) 02:08, 21 April 2013 (UTC)

I was actually under the impression that they were both created by the same company...Either way i think the suggested comparison article would be useful. The obvious problem there is that you need the sources to do the comparisons. That's the biggest challenge you have. Good luck Jenova20 (email) 11:52, 21 April 2013 (UTC)

same company Satoshi Tajiri the creator of pokemon and the creator of digimon is akiyoshi hongo both has never work together what's next you are going to compare Monster Rancher to digimon or pokemon... --Wjmdem (talk) 15:49, 22 April 2013 (UTC)

No, just because they are both series about monsters doesn't warrant a section or article about comparisons. Pokemon was not the first, nor will it be the last monster collection series. They have no relation to each other, Digimon started off as a "Tamagotchi for boys" and not a ripoff of Pokemon as some believe to be. (talk) 03:28, 23 June 2013 (UTC)

not happy wikipedia

whether or not cutting some of the digimon stuff is one thing, but how you doing it is very sloppy. There is a link on this page that says "list of digimon" and instead of a list of digimon, it takes it to a meager paragram that very shortly sums it up as egg- and rookie. this is very misleading and very slack. I have absolutely no faith in the current wiki admin, can you please put the info of the list of digimon back, its already stripped down as it is, thank you (talk) 05:57, 5 August 2012 (UTC)

I realise this is an old post now but we are the ones who edit the articles, not "wiki-admin". If you have an issue with the articles then suggest specific changes or make them yourself. You are capable of editing these articles or at least making a more specific suggestion on the talk page of what improvements can be made. Thanks Jenova20 (email) 11:49, 21 April 2013 (UTC)

Digimon is horrible. It's a ripoff of Pokémon because Pokémon came before Digimon. There is a way Digimon is a ripoff of Pokémon. Digimon must be scrapped for good. It's now Pokémon VS Digimon.

Which is better?

The original, Pokémon (Votes: None)

The ripoff, Digimon (Votes: None)

Couy, Pokemon was not the first monster collection series and Digimon has no relation to Pokemon, it started off as Tamagotchi for boys. The only reason people compare them because of the similar names (Pokemon is Pocket Monsters in Japan but was renamed Pokemon to avoid legal issues with Monster in My Pocket in the U.S), the fact that it both deals with monsters and lastly the lack of competition. Otherwise, the similarities end there. If you want to argue about the "original", keep in mind Digital Devil Story is eight years older than Pokemon. Even then there still might be an older monster collection game, and if you don't limit yourself to video games, Obake Karuta is about 90 years older than Pokemon. And everything I mentioned so far? They are all inspired by mythological Japanese monsters, which dates far as back as ancient Japan. (talk) 03:52, 23 June 2013 (UTC)

One of the toughest articles to clean up

Problem with this article is that in order to improve it to B-class or higher, we need to do more than just reorganize, we need to improve the other articles.

The thing is the metaseries is divided into series, and none of them are adequate. It'll take a lot of time, but we need to fix each individual series, compile all the media together that is directly related, and keep whats not into specific series currently listed into its respected media section.

@Lucia Black: Improving other articles wouldn't be necessary to improve this one class-wise, but would definitely be helpful for readers. I'd be interested in working with you (and anyone else available) to get this article to GA-class, but that would require a number of reliable sources about the anime that I think would be very difficult to dig up, as well as completion of the cleanup issues you've raised.

It'll get us more organized. the article covers too much on the metaseries based on individual series and it will be difficult to do so if we concentrate on the main page alone. if we improve the other articles, we can summarize the sections better. remember the core aspect of the series is the individual tv series.

True. Incidentally, I may not be much help there, as I've only seen about the first 14 episodes of the original Digimon Adventure. I haven't checked up on the Digimon task force in ages; are there other currently active users who could help? Tezero (talk) 21:30, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
We really dont need to explain the plot. although it would be good. we should be looking for media, development, and reception so that we can summarize the main article. plot info is easy to summarize. especially how simple the plots have been. Lucia Black (talk) 15:51, 10 April 2014 (UTC)
I'm really not experienced with finding notable anime reviews, although I know the Anime News Network hosts a good deal of them. Development will be even more difficult, if there is any; it took me a good while just to find enough for the article's current "Conception and creation" section. That being said, we don't have to reference what genuinely isn't there. Tezero (talk) 16:59, 10 April 2014 (UTC)
The least we can do is give a brief summary of the plot and the broadcasting of Japan and English. Otherwise, we're going to be removing alot of info. Lucia Black (talk) 05:01, 11 April 2014 (UTC)
That works. That would be much easier to cite, too. Tezero (talk) 16:39, 11 April 2014 (UTC)

This specific article will take some time. so i'll be looking into the toy-line considering its technically the original media. see what i can find. Lucia Black (talk) 18:02, 11 April 2014 (UTC)
