Preferences about Wikipedia

Long Vowels for Japanese words and names should be implemented in Wikipedia. I know that they are hard for Englishmen, but still there are also non native English speakers reading English Wiki pages, and they can master pronunciation of long vowels. "Osaka" should be "Oosaka" as it is in written in Japanese "大阪". It is just an excuse, not real reason, to not change the language, because "it is always written before as 'Osaka'". See references about Hepburn_romanization.

And yet, Wiki and Wikipedia is the greatest single innovation of human kind. You will understand this in the future.
