Japanese occupation of Borneo[edit]

FYI, there's a notice at WT:MILHIST about the related article -- 65.94.76.126 (talk) 05:30, 1 June 2013 (UTC)

New AKB48-related deletions[edit]

Please look at these:

I'm sorry to ask here again, but... The same nominator, by the way... --Moscow Connection (talk) 20:25, 13 June 2013 (UTC)

Page moved[edit]

I just saw that the article Enthronement of the Japanese Emperor was moved to Enthronement of the Japanese monarch. The editor who made the move, wrote in the edit summary that the "name of article [was changed] to account for reigning empresses". Was there a discussion on this that I missed? If not, then shouldn't there be? Boneyard90 (talk) 00:39, 17 June 2013 (UTC)

There was no discussion and I've moved it back.—Ryulong (琉竜) 01:21, 17 June 2013 (UTC)

Title Change Discussion open[edit]

I have opened up discussion on the current title move-skirmish, before it escalates to a move-war, at Talk:Enthronement of the Japanese Emperor#Title Move Discussion. All editors are invited to join and give opinion in the interest of consensus. Boneyard90 (talk) 14:04, 17 June 2013 (UTC)

Chihana[edit]

Can someone identify where the Chihana Ammunition Depot in Okinawa existed? It stored US chemical weapons before being decomissioned in the 1970s (in Operation Red Hat, ja:レッドハット作戦) It is said it was somewhere between Kadena and Misato, now Okinawa, Okinawa. I have the English spelling from two sources, but I don't know the Japanese one... 86.121.18.17 (talk) 18:33, 17 June 2013 (UTC)

Ok, I found ja:嘉手納弾薬庫地区 as it is called now. 86.121.18.17 (talk) 19:03, 17 June 2013 (UTC)
Chihana seems to be a misspelling or variation of the more common Chibana. 86.121.18.17 (talk) 19:05, 17 June 2013 (UTC)

Suggested articles[edit]

US chemical weapons in Okinawa and US nuclear weapons in Okinawa. These should cover the introduction, notable accidents, and withdrawal of such weapons. Some sub-articles are possible as well. 86.121.18.17 (talk) 19:38, 17 June 2013 (UTC)

Gojira[edit]

The usage of Gojira is under discussion, see talk:Gojira#Requested move 2 -- 65.94.79.6 (talk) 00:22, 18 June 2013 (UTC)

File:Sweatdrop.svg[edit]

File:Sweatdrop.svg has been nominated for deletion -- 65.94.79.6 (talk) 23:06, 18 June 2013 (UTC)

Allegations of Agent Orange in Okinawa[edit]

Can someone create that article? It's a mounting controversy; see for example www.japantimes.co.jp/community/2013/06/04/issues/as-evidence-of-agent-orange-in-okinawa-stacks-up-u-s-sticks-with-blanket-denial/ I'm asking because the same editor who filled Operation Red Hat with irrelevancies has also pasted that issue in at least three other articles, coat-racking them. 86.121.18.17 (talk) 11:04, 21 June 2013 (UTC)

Operation Red Hat covered the topic well enough, but was bloated beyond recognition, which was probably why WikiProject Military history killed it off. I'm not sure why a simple Red Hat article per documentation from the National Archives and Records Administration wasn't suggested vs. nuking the whole article, but I'm not part of that project.
I wouldn't create the above Allegations article as Agent Orange on Okinawa Island isn't an "allegation" or "mounting controversy", it's a fact. Also, the topic spans both Okinawa and the Johnston Atoll, so an Okinawa Prefecture/Okinawa Island-specific article doesn't work, in my opinion. The topic is covered in the repetitive History of the Ryukyu Islands and Okinawa Prefecture#History articles, so I'd leave it at that. ---> Prburley (talk) 15:26, 21 June 2013 (UTC)

"Made In Japan"[edit]

The usage of Made In Japan is under discussion, see talk:Made In Japan -- 65.94.79.6 (talk) 23:04, 23 June 2013 (UTC)

Why is this such a big deal? Anyone can move the article.—Ryulong (琉竜) 00:15, 24 June 2013 (UTC)
You should ask User:Phep that -- 65.94.79.6 (talk) 00:18, 29 June 2013 (UTC)

Mugen[edit]

have been nominated for deletion -- 65.94.79.6 (talk) 00:46, 28 June 2013 (UTC)

This is not really important to note here.—Ryulong (琉竜) 03:50, 28 June 2013 (UTC)
It's been recommended at FFD that wikiprojects related to the material be informed when files come up for deletion at some deletion process -- 65.94.79.6 (talk) 00:16, 29 June 2013 (UTC)
This is a bit of a stretch.—Ryulong (琉竜) 07:39, 29 June 2013 (UTC)
Why's that? Are pictures not important to WPJAPAN articles?
Oh, and the Hitachi file was nominated for deletion, at the time the message was posted, just check the file history.
