I will be rarely available starting now and during the next while. If you want to get my attention regarding something, please email me, but only email if it's really, really important. I won't have time to deal with minor questions or things someone else could just as easily handle. I will be back, however. Real life is just taking precedence right now.
Thanks for your patience. ···日本穣? · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 06:38, 24 August 2013 (UTC)

Edit war[edit]

Hey. I've learnt that you're not supposed to revert edits to a single article more than three times in 24 hours. So my hasty reverting on the Wolf Children page was out of line. Sorry for being tyrannical. Popcornduff (talk) 03:31, 2 November 2014 (UTC)

No problem. We all live and learn. :) ···日本穣? · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 03:22, 3 November 2014 (UTC)

Corruption on kickboxing, help[edit]

Hello, PRehse, Mdtemp and Papaursa are again destroying the Wikipedia kickboxing (I bet these 3 are also linked). There are no kickboxing records on the internet, all the people are informing from the Wikipedia site. Look what are they doing: The article is well written. Then the people had a discussion regarding this promotion which is currently the second in the world: These users are simply ignoring the users based on their personal opinion and hate (SuperKombat should be added on the list, and even if a kickboxer is good to be allowed to be on Wikipedia if he holds first tiers trophies). Basically, PRehse deleted many SuperKombat fighters, now he asked help from his Mdtemp to do it. Before, it was Papaursa who helped him. They kept deleting kickboxers, unbelievable. Can't we have them on Wikipedia if they are notable enough? Remember, these were previously warned to stop deleting K-1 articles, huge events. Dammst (talk) 17:14, 11 November 2014 (UTC)

There's no "corruption" going on as far as I can tell. You seem to be upset because someone nominated someone who doesn't meet the criteria for inclusion (as mentioned in the deletion discussion you linked, above). Just because they don't currently meet the criteria doesn't mean they won't meet them in the future. Please calm down and assume a little good faith on the part of other editors here. We have inclusion criteria for a reason: so we don't get flooded with every person on the planet who wants an article, or get flooded with topics which are not notable per WP:N. ···日本穣? · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 22:43, 13 November 2014 (UTC)

Your message on my talk page[edit]

It was spam, though-I was rollbacking from his contribs because Dammst C&P'd the same message to 21 different users. I would have left a more detailed message and link to the AN/I, but I was pressed for time. Origamite 23:09, 13 November 2014 (UTC)

Please use the edit summary, then, to point people to the discussion in question. Your edit summary gave me no reason why you were reversing the edit. Thanks. ···日本穣? · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 01:27, 14 November 2014 (UTC)
Again, I apologize. Using rollback provides a standard summary and I didn't have the time to personally remove it from each page. If you're interested, the discussion is WP:AN/I#Canvassing. Origamite 02:06, 14 November 2014 (UTC)

Japanese request[edit]

Hi Nihonjoe, I was wondering if you could help a few of us out at Talk:Satellaview. A new editor, Hadsn, has recently started trying to improve the article and we are running into language barriers. I can translate a bit, but it's a very slow process for me and I don't have much time at present. The topic of discussion is pretty tech-heavy and I'm not sure if the new editor is aware of the proper way to use citations. This new editor hasn't even been welcomed to Wikipedia yet and I was wondering if you could kind of act as a liaison here and speak Japanese with him. He seems to be knowledgeable about the subject and I'm worried that without some assistance he'll get irritated by the slow pace and the fact that some of his edits have been reverted. If you are too busy please let me know and I can ask another editor from Wikipedia:Translators available#Japanese-to-English. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide. -Thibbs (talk) 04:25, 26 November 2014 (UTC)

Unfortunately, I don't have the time to help out with that at this time. I suggest Oda Mari as a great resource who may be able to help. ···日本穣? · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 06:46, 26 November 2014 (UTC)
OK thanks for the suggestion. I'll ask Oda Mari. -Thibbs (talk) 12:25, 26 November 2014 (UTC)

Romaji help[edit]

How do you think ウァ would be parsed in hepburn?—Ryūlóng (琉竜) 21:43, 5 December 2014 (UTC)

I've seen it transliterated "Ua" and "Wa". Either one should work fine. ···日本穣? · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 00:03, 6 December 2014 (UTC)

Brandon Sanderson[edit]

To explain my recent edits on the Brandon Sanderson page: your bibliography of the man is like a love-letter from a fan. I don't see any reason to insert titles of books which are not to be published for ages - The Dark One, The Silence Divine, etc. Those belong on the wiki, not in a encyclopedia where people can read about them (nothing is known about these stories, so making separate Wiki-pages for them is rather useless). Also, the alfabetical order is horrible, no further reasons are necessary except for the fact that I like the layout more like it is now.

I have also good things to say, however. I like your edits about the nominations and awards, and of course the titles you added to the bio (the usefull ones). I edit most of the Sanderson wiki-pages (Way of Kings, Words of Radiance, Stormlight Archive, Steelheart, Rithmatist, Legion...), and started a lot of them, so you understand that I am a little protective about the articles, which doesn't say I don't want people to help me complete it. Understand that I prefer the bio like it is now, and further edits are only to be added when more solid plans for the books are revealed. If I had to add everything Mr. Sanderson has ever written...

With kind regards, J.A.R. Huygebaert (talk) 17:53, 22 December 2014 (UTC)

The information regarding upcoming books is because they have been announced. This is common for well-known authors to list them if there is a reliable source as a reference for it. The alphabetical order is not horrible, and only serves to make it easier for people to find the books due to how many different series he is getting. Ease of use is an important factor to consider since not everyone coming to view the article may know as much about Sanderson as you or I man know.
As for you starting most of the Sanderson articles, that's irrelevant. I know Sanderson personally, but I'm not preventing others from adding information to any of the articles. You do not own the articles, and they will not necessarily remain the way you prefer. You can not prevent others from participating in editing the articles. You can not force or require them to get your approval before making edits. You've been here since 2010, so you should understand these things by now. You need to curb your enthusiasm here and work with other editors instead of pretending that you own the articles and have complete control over them. If you don't, you may find yourself facing various consequences for disruptive editing. ···日本穣? · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 18:00, 22 December 2014 (UTC)

Thank you, a follow up.[edit]

Hello Nihonjoe, you have helped me remove my older account name before, but I noticed that on these pages, the older name still show: I appreciate your previous help very much, and I hope that you don't mind removing my older usernames from those pages as well. Thank you very much.Havinghadrequestednamechange (talk) 13:22, 24 January 2015 (UTC)

You can't remove the original uploader information. Your account has been vanished, but you created a new one and posted. This means that your account can be unvanished because you are violating the terms of courtesy vanishing. ···日本穣? · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 18:54, 23 January 2015 (UTC)
I'm sorry. I wasn't sure how to send you a message without creating a new account. Again, sorry. I would not use this account in the future, and thank you again for your help Nihonjoe.Havinghadrequestednamechange (talk) 13:22, 24 January 2015 (UTC)

MfD self-nomination of a vanished user's talk page[edit]

Hi Nihonjoe, I'm working on the MfD backlog and came across this page. This user, since vanished, requested a deletion of his or her user talk page. You renamed the account and gave the page a courtesy blank. I'm guessing you decided it didn't meet WP:CVUT criteria then. Would you close the MfD accordingly, or mind if I did? Thanks, BDD (talk) 16:54, 24 January 2015 (UTC)
