List of AKB48 members[edit]

Please do not switch the English alphabetization to the Japanese gojūon order. This is the English Wikipedia and an English ordering system should be used. The order that you see on the AKB48 websites is not an "official order" but just the Japanese ordering system.—Ryūlóng (琉竜) 19:26, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

Oh thanks for your message. However, I'd like to remind you that, "Represent number" has been totally forgot. That's the reason why I used the Japanese ordering system as it has been made official two years ago. Raymond "Giggs" Ko 19:47, 7 March 2014 (UTC)
This is the English Wikipedia. The gojuon order is not "official". It's just a Japanese ordering system.—Ryūlóng (琉竜) 19:55, 7 March 2014 (UTC)
Please look at the article provided in the link carefully. The official has made the gojuon order as the official order. I have an idea to separate the English and Japanese names but it is a major edit, of course. Raymond "Giggs" Ko 19:59, 7 March 2014 (UTC)
No. This is a bad idea. This is the English Wikipedia. We are using the English alphabet to order these members. There is already a consensus for this at Talk:AKB48.—Ryūlóng (琉竜) 20:06, 7 March 2014 (UTC)
Seems you have already not wanting to care about that passage. Then I have totally nothing to say. Raymond "Giggs" Ko 20:12, 7 March 2014 (UTC)
It says "the order is alphabetical by last name" which is what we're doing here, but in English rather than in Japanese. And you and Moscow Connection suddenly disagreeing with the existing consensus and outnumbering me today two to one does not mean that it is overturned. Plenty of other users in the debate saw that the English alphabetic order is the one that should be used rather than the Japanese gojuon one. Do not restore the gojuon order, again.—Ryūlóng (琉竜) 21:55, 7 March 2014 (UTC)
Do not log out and say "WP:3RR" when reverting anyone. That is edit warring plain and simple. Wait for the discussion to come to a conclusion. If people other than myself who were part of the original discussion regarding the order agree with you rather than me, then I will acquiesce and Wikipedia will use the gojuon order. Right now, English alphabetical order is in use because it's essentially a translation of the Japanese gojuon.—Ryūlóng (琉竜) 08:14, 8 March 2014 (UTC)
I've added a version that shows how the sort key would work with gojuon (or whatever arbitrary) order in my sandbox. User:AngusWOOF/sandbox#AKB_members_list -AngusWOOF (talk) 17:32, 8 March 2014 (UTC)
That's what I mean. But seems wrong sorting there…… Anyway, I'd do it, thanks. Raymond "Giggs" Ko 17:46, 8 March 2014 (UTC)
We'll have to see how the discussion settles (they're arguing more over what should be initially presented). If someone wants gojuon they could easily click Japanese name column and get the members in that order or the reverse. Whether the sort key should be labelled "a1-a26" or "aa-az" will depend on how Wikipedia handles things technically. The recent IP's comments are pretty good; the article should help English readers understand the group without having to learn all that terminology associated with the group. -AngusWOOF (talk) 18:36, 8 March 2014 (UTC)
Just do it technically. Simple. Raymond "Giggs" Ko 18:42, 8 March 2014 (UTC)

League tables and names[edit]

Hi,

I just saw that you moved the bundesliga table so I am asking you why? Are you aware of the consensus we should not have a new template for every season since they are substituted and deleted after being used. Instead we are supposed to subst them and restart the template. I give you the same info I have given other editors who have missed this.

There is consensus at WT:FOOTY to remove the years name it only "Premier League table" or "Current Premier League table" so we can use same template season after season without creating new one s every season. Just substitute the template on the pages it is used and then reset it with new teams. This can be read at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Football/Archive 84#Template:2013–14 X league table‎ or Template:Current X league table and this TfD. Already renamed template are for example Template:Current Fußball-Bundesliga table‎.

I understand it is not a very wide consensus that may need to be discussed more but at many TfD of old table this subject pops up.

August 2014[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm LGA. I noticed that you made a change to an article, 2014 International Champions Cup, but you didn't provide a reliable source. It's been removed and archived in the page history for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so! If you need guidance on referencing, please see the referencing for beginners tutorial, or if you think I made a mistake, you can leave me a message on my talk page. as per the talk page and the maintenance template, the Top goalscorers section is unsourced; please only re-insert when you have a source for the table. LGA talkedits 03:12, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

You are getting the "blame" (as you call it) for the Top goalscorers section as you re-inserted it with this edit. LGA talkedits 21:49, 13 August 2014 (UTC)
