Hi, Sushiya, you are graciously extended an invitation to join the International Highways WikiProject and its new regional taskforces! The Highways WikiProject is an evolving and expanding WikiProject. We are a group of editors who are dedicated to creating, revising, and expanding articles, lists, categories, and Wikiprojects, or anything related to International Roads. This includes supporting existing regional road WikiProjects and fostering the development of new international highway WikiProjects. We have recently created five regional task forces focused on Europe, Asia, Africa, Oceania and Latin America.

To improve road and highway articles, here are guidelines for B class criteria. Please add any higher GA, FA quality articles to the international roads portal. Also, please help out by inviting new or unfamiliar editors with the Wikipedia:WikiProject Highways/New articles/Invite template.

We look forward to welcoming you to the project!

SS Gyōkū Maru[edit]

Hi, I noticed you moved SS Gyokupy Maru to this title. Obvioulsy, I'm ja-0 so will bow to your knowledge of Japanese. I also note that you changed to name of the American sub that sank her from Spadefish to Thresher. Are you getting confused between similarly named ships Gyoko Maru and Gyokuyo Maru (two ships with this name?)?

  • Gyōkū Maru, destroyed in an accidental explosion on 23-2-44
  • Gyokuyo Maru, ex Ben Nevis, torpedoed and sunk by Spadefish on 14-11-44
  • Gyokuyo Maru, torpedoed and sunk by Spadefish on 14-11-44

I'm not sure whether or not the last two are the same ship, or different ships. The third ship would appear to be the ex Empire Dragon Mjroots (talk) 16:59, 11 July 2011 (UTC)

PS, the ref you added, is it a book source? If so, could you use the {{cite book}} template and note that it is in Japanese. Mjroots (talk) 17:03, 11 July 2011 (UTC)
Thank you Mjroots, honestly speaking I'm not a specialist of the shipping history, but felt a necessity to move the incorrectly named article. However from Google searches I am almost certain that the ship captured in incomplete state in a Hong Kong shipyard and sank on September 18, 1944 was named Gyōkū Maru (暁空丸). I cannot find any source that confirms that the ship was Empire Dragon other than "EMPIRE - D - E".
As for the ships you mentioned, I found these entries at All Japan Seamens' Union website:
  • Gyōkō Maru (暁光丸), Yamashita Steamship, 5,342 tonnes, sank February 23, 1944 at 26-20N 126-40E [1]
  • Gyokuyō Maru (玉洋丸), Tōyō Steamship, 5,356 tonnes, sank November 12, 1944 at 31-04N 123-56E [2]
The ref I added was a document in the archive of Japan Center for Asian Historical Records. http://www.jacar.go.jp/english/index.html I will fix the citation, hopefully with a permalink, later (I have to go to work now). --Sushiya (talk) 22:05, 11 July 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for your reply. Like you, I don't want articles to have incorrect info. There is another source for Empire Dragon, which is Mitchell and Sawyer's book "Empire Ships". I used that to create the various lists of Empire ships, but it is no longer available from my local library. The ship had been launched by the time the Japanese captured Hong Kong, but had not been completed. As is common in these situations, she was completed by her captors and used by them.

Chika (Japan) => Chika (Given Name)[edit]

It is more complicated than that. Chika is a given name both in Japan and Igbo. The reason for the split was that the original combined page had become confusing. Can you suggest how the 2 pages should be named? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Op47 (talkcontribs) 15:46, 28 December 2011 (UTC)

I would suggest Chika (Japanese given name) and Chika (Igbo given name) per our naming convention, although I have no idea why there should be two separate articles. For example Mari (given name) lists eight languages. --Sushiya (talk) 16:03, 28 December 2011 (UTC)
Sorted. I think the difference is that Mari merely lists 8 languages but only Japanese is expanded upon in the article. Chika expanded both Japanese and Igbo and it was becoming a bit of a mess. Anyway, sorted for now Op47 (talk) 21:43, 28 December 2011 (UTC)

Proposed Renaming[edit]

Disambiguation link notification for December 24[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Ōmori-Kaigan Station, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Ōmori Station (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

I'd like a modification of Kotoden Kotohira Line.[edit]

Thank you for your revision of the article Kotoden Kotohira Line. However, where I was confirmed, and various templates associated with Ayagawa Station opened, related to Takamatsu Kotohira electric railroad was not fixed. If you're aware, I want to ask for correction. Anyway, I have fixed them to the extent that it can be understood. Also, I wrote the English version of the article also new Ayagawa Station. If possible, I want to ask for correction or revision. Thank you. --御門桜(MIKADO, Sakura) (talk) 19:53, 15 December 2013 (UTC)


(In Jaoanese) ことでん琴平線の記事を加筆いただきありがとうございます。 しかしながら、私が確認したところ、綾川駅開業に伴う、高松琴平電気鉄道に関係する様々なテンプレートなどが修正されていませんでした。 もし、気がついているならば、修正をお願いしたいのです。とりあえず、理解できる範囲でそれらを修正しました。また、綾川駅の記事を新しく英語版で執筆しました。 もし可能であるならば、その記事の加筆修正をお願いいたします。 よろしくお願いいたします。--御門桜(MIKADO, Sakura) (talk) 19:53, 15 December 2013 (UTC)

Opinion on best choice of photos in Japanese train articles[edit]

Hi. Sorry to bother you like this, but I wonder if you can have a look at the E233 series article when you have time. I have added a comment on the article's Talk page, but a recent editor (銚電神) has replaced a lot of good-quality images from Commons with his own poor-quality photos, mostly taken from station platforms. One image replaced (File:E233kei 5000bandai.JPG) was actually chosen recently as a "Quality Image" on Commons, so I don't think this should be replaced. Talk:E257 series is another case where the same thing occurred. I've already reverted him once, but he simply reverts again without comment, and I don't want to get dragged into an edit war, so maybe you can have a look, and decide whether the best images are currently being used in these articles. Thanks for your time. --DAJF (talk) 13:45, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

KiHa 52[edit]

Hello. How to know if it is supposed to be "Kei" or "Katachi"? Example. 203 series are EMUs with 2 batches: the 203-0 and 203-100. KiHa 52 are DMUs with 2 batches too: the 52-0 and 52-100. Thanks Hiwilms (talk) 09:30, 21 June 2014 (UTC)

In Japanese railways, kei (series) is a group of kata (types or classes). For instance, 203 series consist of five types: KuHa 202 and 203 (driving cars), MoHa 202 and 203 (motor cars), and SaHa 203 (trailers). Multiple batches do not form a series. --Sushiya (talk) 13:57, 21 June 2014 (UTC)

Totsuka Station[edit]

Thank you for your clarification regarding the Totsuka station article, I apologise for the inconvenience I have caused. I have added a message on the article's talk page regarding a way to further clarify the sentence; your input would be greatly appreciated.
