Gekko Hayate[edit]

I noticed that there was no Gekko Hayate on the list. Awesomeninja1589 (talk) 06:52, 20 February 2015 (UTC)

Holy spoilers Batman.[edit]

I read this article for information on Fuu Yamanaka. After reading this article for 10 minutes, not only did I not get the info I was lookng for, I now know the names of Naruto's kids, who he marries and part of the ending of Shippuden. Is there anything that can be done so this article can be used by people who haven't read EVERY issue of the manga? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 173.66.190.112 (talk) 14:30, 27 February 2015 (UTC)

Not possible... Robin. Check Wikipedia:Spoiler mostly "It is not acceptable to delete information from an article because you think it spoils the plot."Tintor2 (talk) 17:25, 27 February 2015 (UTC)

Dates[edit]

There are no dates in this article! I assume this is all stuff created somewhere in the past couple of decades, but there is absolutely no indication of that other than the fact that it's manga and anime. When were these characters first created? Etc. - Jmabel | Talk 16:53, 19 May 2015 (UTC)

I'm confused. You mean the dates for websites or tankobon volumes?Tintor2 (talk) 19:37, 19 May 2015 (UTC)
For anything! If you read the article and don't have a context, you wouldn't even have an indication of what century this work is from! - Jmabel | Talk 21:25, 20 May 2015 (UTC)
Take it easy. All sources have dates like "Studio Pierrot (August 12, 2007). "Team Kakashi Deployed". Naruto: Shippūden. TV Tokyo." Also, if Naruto uses a calendar it should be avoided at any costs for being WP:fancruft.Tintor2 (talk) 22:46, 20 May 2015 (UTC)
A reader should not have to read the footnotes to know what era a work is from. - Jmabel | Talk 19:27, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
We need footnotes to prove the article's information is truth.Tintor2 (talk) 20:04, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
Of course. But, again, you also need some basic context in the body of the article. - Jmabel | Talk 15:58, 25 May 2015 (UTC)
What's more to it than a ch.#? This isn't going nowhere. I'll ask for a third opinion in the project.Tintor2 (talk) 20:45, 25 May 2015 (UTC)

It basically boils down to whether to include the years of the medium in the lead. It can be argued the main article is enough for this information. It becomes a matter of preference. DragonZero (Talk · Contribs) 10:36, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

Current state[edit]

There is currently a mini edit war here in the list. These involved User:Sjones23, User talk:Mumbai0618, an anon and me. I believe we should discuss here before making any changes to the list. Regards.Tintor2 (talk) 14:13, 29 October 2015 (UTC)

I have some complaints right away from the recent edits which I have reverted [1]. The phrases such as "the slow-witted Naruto" and "partially-immortal" are editorializing the descriptions. Expanding of phrases such as "ideal girl" to "ideal main female character" is changing the context when it is referenced to the author's interview. Adding that Team 7 "They eventually dissolve on good terms after a few years due to each of their individual preoccupations, but all members remain good friends." without any source to back it up. Adding "Friends" title should be footnoted, for example "efn|Although Sai has a reputation of never naming his works, he did name one "Friends" in chapter/episode/storyline (chapter/episode ref) ". Also in the IP's recent edit about adding the English voice actors and titles for the movie should be sourced. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 17:01, 29 October 2015 (UTC)
I see. I agree there.Tintor2 (talk) 17:30, 29 October 2015 (UTC)
All right, so I'm the guy who thinks they should stay. However, I do agree with some of AngusWOOF's claims. I'm not sure what editorializing the descriptions means; I only found them more descriptive and accurate respectively. Same thing goes for the girl thing, although I'll give that credit since it has a source. I guess the Team 7 thing was unsourced and I'll let that go also, while I'm okay with the footnote thing. The thing is that this page has so many improper citations. Almost all of them pertain to Ch. 243, which obviously can't contain every single thing that goes into this page. I feel the page needs to go through a a major citation haul along with the changes. Mumbai0618 (talk) 04:01, 30 October 2015 (UTC)Mumbai0618
Editorializing (WP:EDITORIAL) is throwing in some personal opinions or points of view into the description that can't be determined by the description / series itself. If Sasuke calls or thinks of Naruto as "slow-witted" regularly when it can stay with a citation, but otherwise it is a proposed opinion. You're right in that the page probably needs to be scrutinized for the recent edits without citations that were snuck in since its FA status. Thanks for understanding. As for partially immortal, that's like partially dead, he's either immortal or he's not. AngusWOOF (barksniff) 14:53, 30 October 2015 (UTC)

Pain vs Nagato[edit]

Currently, there have been too many edits to change Nagato's section to Pain. The reason why I don't support Pain is that such name is an alias for both Nagato and "The Six Paths of Pain". Although he has initially been called Pain, Nagato became more prominent after meeting Naruto. Regards.Tintor2 (talk) 14:49, 4 August 2016 (UTC)

I agree with Tintor. While some edits have tried to compromise using "Nagato/Pain", the latter wouldn't be appropriate and makes for an awkward section heading. The alias is mentioned within the first sentence under the subsection so it really is unnecessary. Opencooper (talk) 15:12, 4 August 2016 (UTC)
Another edit.Tintor2 (talk) 17:48, 7 August 2016 (UTC)
User:Firejally has changed Nagato's section title yet again without consensus. Should we get them blocked?Gonzales John (talk) 10:08, 10 August 2016 (UTC)
