Categories[edit]

Is there a more accurate category this could be in? Shojo and Josei may have made sense when it was only doing those demographics, but the slot never intended to only target a female audience, so they seem a little irrelevant now... Doceirias (talk) 23:43, 18 January 2008 (UTC)

Time?[edit]

The article says it's a programming block, so presumably there's a specific broadcast day/time for it -- so, when? Seems to be a fairly major piece of info missing here. —Quasirandom (talk) 03:54, 11 April 2009 (UTC)

I have no idea why it wasn't mentioned previously, but I've updated it accordingly with the correct information. ···巌流? · talk to ganryuu 05:23, 11 April 2009 (UTC)
Thankee. Useful and concise, too. —Quasirandom (talk) 16:50, 13 April 2009 (UTC)

Gaps[edit]

There are a lot of gaps here of more than one week in-between series. This is atypical; I've never heard of an 11-episode anime outside this block. What does Fuji TV show at 00:45 on Thursday nights during those gaps? --Shay Guy (talk) 18:22, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

Day and time format[edit]

  • The day and time are written as "Thursday night from 24:45 to 25:15". While writing things like this in Japanese is quite common, does anyone ever use the system in English? Wouldn't it be better to instead translate it into "Friday night from 0.45 to 1.15 AM"? This is English Wikipedia, so in my opinion English date & time formats should be used. (212.247.11.156 (talk) 18:38, 8 November 2009 (UTC))
  • I have to admit, the 24+ hour clock does seem like an innovative (if not entirely logical) way of dealing with the paradox of TV listings showing midnight to 6 AM as part of the previous day. Worth discussion in its own right, maybe. Lee M (talk) 03:48, 4 January 2011 (UTC)
  • "Friday early morning from 0.45 to 1.15 AM" would avoid ambiguity: here in England "Friday night" tends to mean "the night after Friday". Anthony Appleyard (talk) 05:00, 19 August 2011 (UTC)

No consensus to move. Vegaswikian (talk) 22:50, 25 August 2011 (UTC)

  • Bot prevented ability to move page back to the title by which it is referred to almost exclusively on the project (with assistance from {{lowercase title}}). —Ryūlóng (竜龙) 19:21, 18 August 2011 (UTC)
    • Is it me or is User:BOTijo just causing unnecessary work for page movers? When it adds the sorting templates to redirects left over from bad page moves, it forces us to waste everyone's time here requesting moves back to the correct titles. – ukexpat (talk) 19:45, 18 August 2011 (UTC)
      • AGF is called for. Those redirect sorting templates are perfectly standard. In this particular case, the template was placed three months after the move, and it all happened three years ago! Only now is doubt being cast on the page move. Favonian (talk) 20:16, 18 August 2011 (UTC)
        • AGF isn't really an issue here. I think UK is just noting an unintended side effect of BOTijo. Really, though, I don't think these uncontroversial move requests are that much of a time waste. ErikHaugen (talk | contribs) 20:32, 18 August 2011 (UTC)
          • It would really help if BOTijo did not act at all when it comes to redirects made from page moves, but that is certainly a discussion for another page.—Ryūlóng (竜龙) 21:24, 18 August 2011 (UTC)
  • opposeMOS:TM says: "Follow standard English text formatting and capitalization rules, even if the trademark owner considers nonstandard formatting "official"". I think it should be written as Noitamina in the text of the article, also. ErikHaugen (talk | contribs) 23:48, 22 August 2011 (UTC)
  • Support as original requester. This is an "eBay" and "iPod" situation, even if the capital letter is all the way at the end of the name. Reliable sources call it "noitaminA" so there is no reason we should not either.—Ryūlóng (竜龙) 00:04, 23 August 2011 (UTC)
  • Oppose. Had a similar discussion recently and MOS:TM is pretty clear on the issue – we only stray from standard English formatting in titles when it is the first letter. If we're going to change that, then MOS:TM should be changed. As a side note, I agree that BOTijo and similar redirect-tagging bots make moving pages unnecessarily difficult for non-admins. 18:13, 25 August 2011 (UTC)

Requested move (2014)[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of the proposal. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the proposal was no consensus. --BDD (talk) 18:03, 21 May 2014 (UTC)

NoitaminaNoitaminA – Revisiting this properly after some time, because I have seen across the project people just using "noitamina" because of the way this page is formatted. Per WP:MOSTM, we use variations in use rather than make ones up ourselves. All reliable sources format the title of this in English as "noitaminA", as well as being featured in their logotype as the English language form, as the stylization has an implicit meaning. --Relisted.

  • Oppose per the 2011 discussion. Many articles have stylistic considerations, which is why the redirect exists. If they are not styling it properly, inform them of their error. This page clearly shows how to style it on the first sentence, so if they actually read the article, they'll know how to style it and whether they are even linking to the correct article or not. If you remove {{lowercase}} styling from the title line, it should make it appear as a generic page title instead of a stylistic consideration. -- 65.94.171.206 (talk) 22:40, 28 April 2014 (UTC)
    Consensus can change in 3 years. And also, people have been just linking to [[noitamina]] rather than the redirect for whatever reason.—Ryūlóng (琉竜) 06:10, 29 April 2014 (UTC)
