Thanks, but I'll give it a miss just now. --DAJF (talk) 03:46, 5 January 2015 (UTC)

Nippon Kaigi category[edit]

I noticed that you left me a message on the talk page. Thanks. I do understand what you mean. However, it may be unfair that you removed only my edits. If my making changes is a fault, changes before my edit are also faluts. So you should clear 92 articles added to Category:Members of Nippon Kaigi of category. --Genifique (talk) 05:34, 20 January 2015 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for replying. I didn't look at every single one of the 92 articles currently included in Category:Members of Nippon Kaigi, but I checked a large number (maybe 30 or so), and all of those included sourced statements confirming that the subjects were members of Nippon Kaigi. But if you do see any articles in that category which do not include sourced confirmation, then please feel free to remove them from the category. --DAJF (talk) 05:43, 20 January 2015 (UTC)

New Morning[edit]

Thank you, he has been up my ass about this forever. IIRC he did it on other pages too and he's still going "IT NEEDS AN ENGLISH LANGUAGE SOURCE".—Ryūlóng (琉竜) 04:22, 23 January 2015 (UTC)

Holy shit he is still going on and on about "romaji" when I told him that's a completely wrong interpretation.—Ryūlóng (琉竜) 04:48, 23 January 2015 (UTC)


Wikipedia Rollbacker.svg

I have granted rollback rights to your account. After a review of some of your contributions, I believe you can be trusted to use rollback for its intended usage of reverting vandalism, and that you will not abuse it by reverting good-faith edits or to revert-war. For information on rollback, see Wikipedia:New admin school/Rollback and Wikipedia:Rollback feature. If you do not want rollback, contact me and I will remove it. Good luck and thanks. 05:02, 23 January 2015 (UTC)– Gilliam (talk)

OK, thanks very much. I have read through the guidelines above, and will use it sparingly. --DAJF (talk) 08:51, 23 January 2015 (UTC)

Railway or Railroad[edit]

(I'm sorry for my poor English.)

Thank you for advice. I does not edit coming from "railway" to "railroad" rewrite. I think I've edited part back to "Railway".


However, "Meitetsu" English name is "Nagoya Railroad Co.,Ltd."[1][2]. In this case choose "Railway"?

しかし、名古屋鉄道の英語表記は「Railroad」になっています。この場合も「Railway」も選ぶべきでしょうか。--ButuCC (talk) 12:44, 2 February 2015 (UTC)

Hi. Thanks for replying. The full name for Meitetsu should of course be written as "Nagoya Railroad", as that is the official name. (Although actually the company appears to use mainly "Meitetsu" in its publicity these days.) I think there are only a few railway companies in Japan that use "Railroad" in their names, so in general, you should be careful about changing occurrences of "railway" to "railroad" unless we know that that is the form officially used by the company. Does that make sense? Please feel free to drop me a line here again if there is still anything you are not sure about. Happy editing! --DAJF (talk) 13:23, 2 February 2015 (UTC)
I see. I think there are no problems by "Meitetsu", too. It'll be only the part made "Nagoya Railway" that change is needed. In part to use the official name is written as "Nagoya Railroad", otherwise I think that would be written as "Meitetsu".
了解しました。私も「Meitetsu」表記でも問題ないと思います。変更が必要なのはおそらく「Nagoya Railway」としている箇所だけでしょう。正式名称を使う部分では「Nagoya Railroad」と書き、それ以外は「Meitetsu」と書くことになると思います。
For other company name there is no hard evidence, I'm going back to the "Railway". I'm sorry for making noise.
それ以外の会社名は確かな証拠が無いため、「Railway」に戻すつもりです。お騒がせいたしました。--ButuCC (talk) 19:00, 2 February 2015 (UTC)

About the English name of the station[edit]

(example, Toyokawa-Inari → Toyokawa-inari).

There seems to be a mistake about an article name of some Meitetsu stations (Having hyphen or not, position of the hyphen, misspellings etc. I've listed the differences between the described and article name of the official site to User:ButuCC/sandbox.).


I don't know whether to change all, Because it contains obvious mistake, we also have a want to rename (Article name "Nihon Rhine Imawatari Station" mistake "Nihonrain-imawatari Station".).

全て変えるべきかどうかは分かりませんが、明らかな間違いも含まれているため、改名したいと思っています(記事名「Nihon Rhine Imawatari Station」は「Nihonrain-imawatari Station」の間違い)。

I about the changes of the list up the article name, we would like to propose together in Talk:Meitetsu. However, I don't know where the page equivalent to "ja:Wikipedia:改名提案" of the JaWP. Should I notify this page?

私はリストアップした記事名の変更について、Talk:Meitetsuでまとめて提案したいと思っています。しかし、日本語版の「改名提案」に相当するページが何処にあるのか分かりません。このページに告知すれば良いのでしょうか。--ButuCC (talk) 12:59, 6 February 2015 (UTC)

Hi. I see your point. The Help guide for moving (i.e. renaming) pages can be read at Help:How to move a page. As explained there, you are free to move pages yourself if the move is clearly not controversial and not blocked by the existence of a redirect page. If the new article names you are proposing are supported by the official Meitetsu website and publicity, then I don't think these are especially controversial page moves, so you can go ahead and move them yourself, as explained in the Help guide above. In cases where page moves are blocked by existing redirect pages, then you will need to make a formal move request at Wikipedia:Requested moves. Does that make sense? Please drop me a line again, if you still have any questions about the process. --DAJF (talk) 14:03, 6 February 2015 (UTC)
I see. If it's that kind of thing, several cases seem to be able to change their name without an argument.
For articles that need to be submitted to: Wikipedia:Requested moves, I'm going to request from remember how proposals.
Wikipedia:Requested movesに提出する必要のある記事については、提案の仕方を覚えてからリクエストするつもりです。--ButuCC (talk) 09:48, 7 February 2015 (UTC)

Removal of edit[edit]

Some day i was reading the lo maglev article on wiki (, but ran over this mistake: The maximum speed says 500 km/h but thats wrong, as you can see in this video: so i changed it to 505, but now this DAJF has changed it back to 500 — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:06, 11 February 2015 (UTC)

Hi. Thanks for leaving a comment. Your previous edits were reverted because details in the article (the maximum speed) were changed without any comment or a reference source to support the changes. I have since found a source to support the revised maximum speed, but in future, please take the time to include both an edit summary and reliable source before changing critical details in articles, as otherwise your edits may be seen as simple vandalism. --DAJF (talk) 04:45, 12 February 2015 (UTC)

Maryjun Takahashi[edit]

Good day! The reliable source from her Facebook page (see and read some informations using this link: proved that the person in the article (Maryjun Takahashi) was born in Ōtsu, Shiga ,even in other website like DramaWiki,Modelpress,etc. have the same prove,so you don't have any reason to removed the reliable source and that is from her Facebook page.However,I would like to thank you for welcoming me on Wikipedia.Once again,Thank you!!!-- (talk) 09:32, 26 February 2015 (UTC)

You may want to have a closer look at that Facebook page again, as it looks somewhat dubious (talking about Takahashi in the third person etc etc). Don't you think it is strange that it is not linked to from any of her other official sites? Anyway, other fan-edited sites are equally unreliable for biographical details, so please take the time to re-read WP:BLP, and also consider signing in, or creating a user account if you don't already have one. --DAJF (talk) 10:03, 26 February 2015 (UTC)

Shinkansen colours[edit]

Hi, the other day I noticed you have a subpage User:DAJF/shinkansen service colours with blank spaces for the Sakura and Mizuho. Well, it got me curious so I just took a little excursion to Shin Kobe station. My eyes are not a published source, but I consider them pretty reliable. Sakura is pink and Mizuho orange. I took a photo of the timetable if you'd like confirmation. AtHomeIn神戸 (talk) 10:30, 5 March 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for spotting that! It will be useful for adding to the "Adjacent stations" details on articles for shinkansen stations served by those services. --DAJF (talk) 10:47, 5 March 2015 (UTC)
Hello, DAJF. Maybe, all Japanese railway service colors, include Shinkansen are displayed in an article ja:日本の鉄道ラインカラー一覧 (List of Japanese railway service colors). Is this useful? Thanks for reading. --Nyoki2 (talk) 16:45, 14 March 2015 (UTC)
Hi. I wasn't aware of that article, but it is useful. Thanks for posting it here. --DAJF (talk) 03:32, 15 March 2015 (UTC)

Sweet Pool[edit]

Back in 2010, you PRODded this, and it was deleted. Undeletion has been requested at WP:REFUND, so per WP:DEL#Proposed deletion I have restored it, and now notify you in case you wish to consider AfD. Regards, JohnCD (talk) 09:36, 16 March 2015 (UTC)

OK, thanks for the notification. Hopefully the requesting editor can work on it to provide sufficient sourcing to demonstrate notability. Thanks. --DAJF (talk) 09:41, 16 March 2015 (UTC)

Naoko Takeuchi[edit]

You said

> Hello, I'm DAJF. An edit that you recently made to Naoko Takeuchi‎ seemed to be a test and has been removed. If you want more practice editing, please use the sandbox. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thanks! DAJF

Now I noticed at once on your talk page you said

> Please do not reply here in response to comments I have made on other Talk pages. Conversations should remain on the page where they started.

So I was unsure at first where to ask but -what do mean by "seemed like a test"? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:02, 25 March 2015 (UTC)

Hi. Yes, as per the message you see at the top of this page, it generally makes more sense to continue a conversation on one page (ideally where the conversation started), but since you have commented here...
Your series of edits to the Naoko Takeuchi‎ article seemed to be an attempt to link to a user's draft page by adding a full URL, which is not a good way to do things. If you are new to Wikipedia, please have a look at Wikipedia:Tutorial/Wikipedia links, which gives a few basic tips on how to link to other articles on Wikipedia. Note however, that you cannot and should not link to users' pages. Hope this helps somewhat. --DAJF (talk) 12:23, 25 March 2015 (UTC)


Use of tildes at article 'E-Girls'[edit]

Hi. Regarding [12] "Restore MOS-compliant name format (we don't use tildes)": in that case feel free to modify the additional uses of tilde on the same page; as '~' in the romanized titles and '~' in the Japanese titles.

Would it be OK to use ~ in the English titles to that they can get the proper naming, i.e. formatting? The track in question should rightfully be: "RYDEEN ~Dance All Night~" (and definitely not "Rydeen: Dance All Night" as it is now) -- Katana (talk) 14:55, 9 April 2015 (UTC)

Hi. Please read through the Manual of Style guidelines dealing with how we render Japanese titles etc in English Wikipedia articles. We don't use the stylistic all-caps common in Japanese titles, and subtitles using tildes in Japanese should be changed to colons in English, hence "Rydeen: Dance All Night". I realize that that might appear different from the official Japanese title, but that's how we do it to maintain standardization and some semblance of order. --DAJF (talk) 15:03, 9 April 2015 (UTC)
I did look at the MOS (mostly sections and pages regarding titles) but didn't find anything relevant. The Japan-specific link you provided above is obviously clear. As a sidenote I find this element of the MOS strange; to prioritize readability(?) over enforcing the encyclopedia-correctness by not preserving the original title 100% (in the case of 'Rydeen' and others there is no paranthesis with the original JP title).
I see you've made a change at the E-girls article to the existing tilde I referenced. So thanks for that.
PS: I didn't notice that you prefer talk about comments to stay in their original location. My bad -- Katana (talk) 08:50, 10 April 2015 (UTC)

Yui Mizuno trivia[edit]

Hi, what is it that has made you remove all my contribution to the English wiki page of Yui Mizuno? I added some factual and fair trivia of Yui Mizuno in there today. And I believe they are all true and correct. Chan Mio — Preceding unsigned comment added by Chan Mio (talkcontribs) 16:32, 10 April 2015 (UTC)

Hi. I removed the section because it appeared to be a list of indiscriminate fan trivia better suited to a fan page or blog. Just because it is "true" or sourced doesn't necessarily mean it belongs in a biographical article. --DAJF (talk) 01:28, 12 April 2015 (UTC)
Hi, I for one find these information useful and relevant, but I agree they are a list of miscellaneous information and kind of need to be well-organized. At this point, what part of information do you personally find useless in accordance with the Wikipedia guideline?
"degree of selectivity should always be used, but the criteria for inclusion are complex, because the "importance" of a fact is subjective. It is not reasonable to disallow all information that some editors feel is unimportant, because that information could be important to some readers." "Trivia sections should not simply be wiped away, however, because some items may be useful for integration."
FYI: The Portuguese version of Yui Mizuno wiki page also has her personal details section, and seems to work very well.
--Chan Mio (talk) 15:40, 12 April 2015 (UTC)
I would say that the only detail possibly worth saving is the mention of the song she sang at her audition. And that should be integrated properly in the existing biography section. Everything else is just fluff... "favourite food", stretches every morning to get taller? Please, this is supposed to be an encyclopedia article - not a schoolgirl magazine article. What is or is not considered acceptable on other language projects is not particularly relevant to what happens on English Wikipedia, but I see that the Portuguese article you mention only devotes two sentences to Yui Mizuno's personal details, so that still looks a lot better than the trivia list currently included in the English language article. Anyway, no rush, but perhaps take the time to have a look at other more developed articles about artists on Wikipedia to see how they are written. You won't see any trivial mentions of hobbies or favourite foods on articles such as Justin Bieber or Lady Gaga (designated a "Good Article"). --DAJF (talk) 15:55, 12 April 2015 (UTC)

Okay, I see what you mean. I'm going to take a look at your suggested star pages, and rewrite, remove, and/or integrate my information into another section of the page. Hopefully this weekend. Is it alright with you? Will start next discussion on the article Talk page after my next edit. >(Collapsing discussion. Any further additions or comments on the subject would be better directed to the relevant article Talk page) --Chan Mio (talk) 14:53, 13 April 2015 (UTC)

Kenjiro Tsuda[edit]

Hi, this is Yen replying to your message about the article Kenjiro Tsuda. First of all, I appreciate the advice. However, I will be re-adding my edit after leaving this message. You reverted my edit for my lack of a reliable source. I don't know what to tell you other than go watch the shows I added and see that Tsuda Kenjiro is clearly listed in the credits. That is the most reliable form of source I can get with regards to an actor's role on a show. I will mention this in the comments when I re-add my edits. While I appreciate that you are making sure articles are clean and without false information, please also verify that they are false before removing information you suspect. YenTamashi (talk) 18:13, 12 April 2015 (UTC)

Hi. Thanks for responding, but unfortunately, the burden for including reliable sources actually lies with the editor adding the claims. Please read the guidelines at WP:PROVEIT and also WP:BLP, and be sure to include a reliable (ideally third-party) source before re-adding this information. Thanks. --DAJF (talk) 23:35, 12 April 2015 (UTC)
Hi. Then please answer a few questions. First, please explain to me how the credits of TV show is not a reliable source for whether an actor is involved in a show or not. Second, I do not see any sources attached to anything else on the article. Why are you not removing all of that information? What is the difference between what is already posted and my edit? I ask both to improve my understanding of acceptable sources on Wikipedia and also because I do not agree with your decision to revert mine and other people's edits in this article even though they are verifiable facts. Please explain. YenTamashi (talk) 04:25, 13 April 2015 (UTC)
I'll try and explain the situation as best I can. I presume you have already read through the guidelines about Wikipedia:Identifying reliable sources and Wikipedia:Verifiability. Admittedly, these do not specifically touch on the use of opening or ending credits as sources for Wikipedia articles, but they do explain how articles should ideally be sourced using third-party references, which film or TV credits are not. If the work or role you wish to add is notable enough, then it should be fairly easy to find a source to add to the article. It doesn't have to be in English - Japanese sources are fine too. But if no sources can be found, you need to step back and consider whether this means that perhaps the work or the role was actually not so important and probably does not warrant mentioning in a Wikipedia article. As for why other roles have not been deleted, actually I have been working through other voice actor articles, steadily weeding out unsourced and unverified roles. WP:OTHERSTUFFEXISTS is never a valid argument for allowing the inclusion of new unsourced material, and if you see any unsourced or dubious listings in Kenjiro Tsuda or other articles, please feel free to remove them yourself. Unlike IMDB or ANN listings, Wikipedia articles are supposed to be both encyclopedic and reliably sourced, so I hope you can help in digging up reliable reference sources and pruning out unsourced material. All the roles will need to be reliably sourced if the article is to ever progress beyond the basic "Start" class and eventually reach "Good Article" status. I can understand how you may not appreciate having your edits reverted, but I assume you are also eager to improve this and other similar articles, so please try and include reliable sources in future. I know it means a bit more effort, but it will result in a much better quality article. Thanks. --DAJF (talk) 06:26, 13 April 2015 (UTC)
I really appreciate the detailed answer. I still do not agree with you, but I do see your point and understand the reasoning. While I understand that the lack of a third-party source might be equivalent to being unimportant enough for Wikipedia, it should not render the original source unreliable. To the actor, I would think they are proud of any role they performed, and that they don't feel any of them is unimportant. In my opinion, a "Good" class article for an actor would include information on even the tiniest roles, because their fans would like the information, and the actor would appreciate being remembered. You mentioned Wikipedia articles to be encyclopedic, I would expect an encyclopedic article on an actor to include all works they are credited in, big or small. Rather than a bit more effort on my part to find reliable sources, I feel that my sources are enough reliable and sufficient for the information I added. That said, I realize this is me not agreeing with the rules here and I do not plan to fight anymore over this. Thanks for your information. YenTamashi (talk) 08:08, 13 April 2015 (UTC)

Geisha Wiki Edit[edit]

Hello DAFJ, this is Asuttles23. I am working on this Geisha page for my class project and am not working together with Arodcinco55 as you stated earlier this week. I noticed you tagged me in a message containing him but I am not working with him. As far as the content goes, I was under the impression that majority of everything taken from "JSTOR" was scholarly and would count as a citation. I'm sorry for all of the inconvenience regarding all the edits and deletion of my edits. I will continue to look for a better source that will meet the requirements of a Scholarly cite. Please let me know if i need to do anything else. I also would like to add a photo of the shoes the Geisha wear and as far as that goes is their any limitations for that? Here is the image URL to the picture i wanted to add. Thank you!

Image URL: ..... added at 16:45, 17 April 2015‎ by User:Asuttles23 (contributions)

Hello, talk page stalker here. Please see Talk:Geisha, where I point out that rather than looking for reliable sources from which to derive good material, you seem to have certain ideas in your head that you insert and to which you attach "references" that aren't. This stuff was not taken from the book review at JSTOR to which you pointed.
Yes, what else you need to do is (1) to clear your head of the simplifications, half-truths and poppycock that you may have read in websites created by the uninformed, and (2) to find reliable sources, read them, understand them, summarize what they say, and credit them as your sources.
There are very many limitations relevant to the addition of images, many of them related to copyright. But let's put them aside for a minute. The image to which you point shows pokkuri, which are (rather famously) worn by maiko. Maiko are not geisha; geisha do not wear pokkuri. -- Hoary (talk) 22:38, 17 April 2015 (UTC)
Hi. I don't think there is much more I can add over what Hoary has already explained above. I hope you can add a page number for the citation to Liza Dalby's Geisha, so it can be verified by another editor. Thanks. --DAJF (talk) 10:58, 18 April 2015 (UTC)

KuMoHa 12[edit]

Thanks for looking over my work so quickly. I'm not a Japanese speaker or expert in Japanese railway terminology, but I'm wondering whether the 形 kanji is really part of the KuMoHa 12 name (that's why I left it out in the "nihongo" templates). From what I could see in dictionary entries it looked like a generic word meaning "form" or (in this context) "type". --Colin Douglas Howell (talk) 14:31, 16 May 2015 (UTC)

Hi. The Japanese "形" corresponds to the English "type" or "class" in individual vehicle designations (similar to "系" for "series"). While we often leave out the "type" or "class" in English (as in the article's title, for example) it is normally required in Japanese usage, so I think it's best to include it. But thanks for expanding the article. --DAJF (talk) 14:54, 16 May 2015 (UTC)

40 series listed at Redirects for discussion[edit]


An editor has asked for a discussion to address the redirect 40 series. Since you had some involvement with the 40 series redirect, you might want to participate in the redirect discussion if you have not already done so. Colin Douglas Howell (talk) 05:15, 27 May 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for the notification. As I mentioned on the discussion page, I don't see any reason to delete or otherwise change the redirect until an article about the 40 series EMU has actually been created. When that happens, we can simply use the same arrangement as used on the 201 series article (with a top-hat disambiguator pointing to KiHa 201 series). The same method is used at the 281 series, 283 series, and 285 series articles, and it would appear to work fine. But if you have any better suggestions, I'm happy to help out. --DAJF (talk) 07:03, 27 May 2015 (UTC)
OK, that works for me. Since I see you've removed the misleading wikilink to the redirect from Katamachi Line, my only remaining concern has been resolved. Thanks. --Colin Douglas Howell (talk) 11:02, 27 May 2015 (UTC)

Yukina Kinoshita and "Hon'nō-ji"[edit]

Hello, I'm Seya.

  • Romanization of 本能寺 is Hon'nō-ji, because if it is Honnō-ji, people may misread ほっのうじ. Please see here.

Seya L Yost (talk) 03:46, 25 August 2015 (UTC) Fixed typo ~~

Hi. Thanks for your reply, and thanks for digging up that reference verifying Yukina Kinoshita's official (married) name. I have added it to the article and restored her married name to the intro. As for your comment about Honnō-ji, I'm afraid that doesn't make any sense, and the link you provided doesn't clarify the situation either. Please take the time to read and familiarize yourself with the Manual of Style. This explains how the syllabic "ん" is written "n'" (with an apostrophe) only before vowels and y. I hope this makes things clearer. --DAJF (talk) 04:46, 25 August 2015 (UTC)

You can look online and see that Tabata is not used as a key direction station anymore. Look on Google Images if you want to check. Chrifgnf (talk) 17:07, 16 September 2015 (UTC)

I am still thinking that I am still right. Tabata is not on the screen on the front of the train. You can look it up and you will see that Tabata is not a indicating direction anymore. Chrifgnf (talk) 04:31, 17 September 2015 (UTC)

Hi. It might have been better to keep the discussion in one place, but thanks for replying. I did actually double-check on Google Images before I commented on your Talk page. Tabata is probably not used on the indicators on the front of trains, as there is very little space, but I was actually referring to signage at stations, where Tabata is indeed one of seven stations still used. A quick search on Google turns up the following:
  • Shinjuku Station: [13] ("for Ikebukuro, Tabata & Ueno")
  • Ikebukuro Station: [14] ("for Tabata, Ueno & Tokyo")
  • Ueno Station: [15] ("for Tabata, Ikebukuro & Shinjuku")
  • Kanda Station: [16] ("for Ueno, Tabata, Sugamo & Ikebukuro")
All these images appear to be pretty recent, so I'd be interested to see any evidence that Tabata is no longer used on signage. --DAJF (talk) 05:48, 17 September 2015 (UTC)

I see. I am sorry. There was not a good explanation of the meaning of Tabata. Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Chrifgnf (talkcontribs) 04:20, 19 September 2015 (UTC)


When I added information its never means outside wiki, its means inside wiki, mistaken for outside information? i dont understand? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:07, 29 September 2015 (UTC)

Sorry, I don't understand what you are trying to say either. Just be sure to include a reliable source in future, as there is a possibility you will be blocked from editing if you continue to add dubious/unsourced material to articles. --DAJF (talk) 00:48, 29 September 2015 (UTC)

Koriyama High School[edit]

Hi! Just noticed that the page I made for Koriyama High School was removed; could you help me understand why? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Invesperascere (talkcontribs) 16:51, 1 October 2015 (UTC)

Hi. As I explained in the edit summary at the time, the article was redirected to the Yamatokōriyama article, as it was unsourced and had tenuous notability. If you are interested in restoring and expanding it as a self-standing article, please be sure to include reliable sources. Drop us a line if you need any help. --DAJF (talk) 23:57, 1 October 2015 (UTC)

October 2015[edit]

Actually, you did: — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:10, 6 October 2015 (UTC)

OK, thanks for digging up that reference. Next time, please be sure to include in-line citations to back up biographical details and save yourself the trouble of having your work reverted. --DAJF (talk) 09:41, 6 October 2015 (UTC)


The LCCN notes said that she was merged from this LCCN file, do you see any other evidence that her first job was with the NHS as an occupational therapist? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) (talkcontribs) 21:52, 22 October 2015 (UTC)

Hi. That is presumably about a different person. --DAJF (talk) 23:35, 22 October 2015 (UTC)
Yes, it wasn't a merge it was a splitting of the record. The other person still works for NHS. --Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) (talk) 23:38, 22 October 2015 (UTC)
Can you give your opinion at Talk:Fiona Graham to the informal poll. The comments at BLP really did not come to a consensus, so this will help people choose among three options. --Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) (talk) 21:51, 23 October 2015 (UTC)
Sorry, but it needs to be fixed first. None of the comments are signed, and anonymous personal attacks by COI editors are not conducive to serious discussion. --DAJF (talk) 01:10, 24 October 2015 (UTC)



you removed the link to the plant from the list. It was clickable and is mentioned at Moroccan mint tea. May I revert your edit? Matthias Buchmeier (talk) 19:36, 30 October 2015 (UTC)

BTW sheeba is also mentioned at Artemisia (genus) as a name for Artemisia arborescens. Matthias Buchmeier (talk) 19:48, 30 October 2015 (UTC)
Hi. The disambiguation page for Chiba really should be listing only occurrences of "Chiba" or "chiba" in other Wikipedia articles. It appears to be mentioned in Maghrebi mint tea as a name for Artemisia arborescens, but as the Artemisia arborescens article itself does not seem to mention either the "chiba" or "sheeba" names, maybe someone ought to add a (sourced) mention of the Moroccan names to that article before a disambiguation entry can be re-added. --DAJF (talk) 00:50, 31 October 2015 (UTC)
OK, I'll do that as soon as I find some spare time. cheers Matthias Buchmeier (talk) 10:21, 31 October 2015 (UTC)


Thanks for your cleanup of the article. I'd like to run a couple of things by you:

  1. The "commercial endorsements" section was not ideal, so I don't blame you for removing it. But what if a shorter (and sourced) version was included as part of the description of his recent success? I'm thinking just one sentence along the lines of "in the following year he appeared in advertising campaigns for A, B and C."
  2. What do you think about the page being moved to Sugi-chan?

Thanks, AtHomeIn神戸 (talk) 04:54, 2 November 2015 (UTC)

Hi. If we can find decent sources, then I think it's OK to re-add some of the commercial endorsements, but the trend for well-developed biographical articles of celebrities appears to be to not just list such endorsements in resume style unless they have actually received third-party coverage (like Tommy Lee Jones' endorsements for Boss Coffee).
As for moving the article to Sugi-chan, I agree that is probably a better choice. As we now have three editors (including myself) agreeing to the move, I would say, just go ahead and move the article, since it does not appear to be controversial, and "-chan" is the preferred style stipulated in the manual of style. --DAJF (talk) 01:58, 3 November 2015 (UTC)

Kanoya, Kagoshima[edit]

Hi I am working on getting more information about Kanoya out there in English and my edits to its page were deleted. They were actually direct translations from the Japanese Wikipedia for Kanoya, Kagoshima, I checked back at the sources for what I translated and there were not any sources for the Japanese one at that part. Can I just source Japanese Wikipedia for those? In the later parts there are sources which I can add into the English one as well. Kanoyakagoshima (talk) 00:25, 17 November 2015 (UTC)

Hi. Thanks for your work on the article, but don't forget that facts that are likely to be contested will need actual verifiable sources to back them up. Japanese Wikipedia articles often serve as a starting point for information, but they cannot be used as actual sources for the details. Sources don't necessarily have to be in English, although that is preferable. Anyway, have a look through the guidelines at Wikipedia:Verifiability, and feel free to drop us line again if you need help. --DAJF (talk) 01:48, 17 November 2015 (UTC)



OK, I will no shout in here again. Please please please read other people's work before revert it back. Although not perfect, I will continue to work on few articles that I feel I have enough knowledge to help to contribute. Those articles are so outdated!!! Technodudes (talk) 12:28, 24 November 2015 (UTC)

How knowledgable are you one photo booth? My edits are not commercial. The article is so broken. And you want to hold back other people efforts to improve Wikipedia? Do you want to continue to live in the Dark Ages?Technodudes (talk) 12:42, 24 November 2015 (UTC)

Why the photo booth article is overly focussed on the Japanese version of photo sticker booth that the rest of the world think is a useless junk?? I am sorry, but the English version, I am going to reduce the section on that useless junk. You can add it in the Japanese version of the page. Technodudes (talk) 12:47, 24 November 2015 (UTC)

Hi. Thanks for your interest in updating the article. Please do make sure that new material added to the article is properly sourced and conforms to the long-established Manual of style regarding punctuation and case etc. This is to ensure uniformity and standardization across all articles on Wikipedia. Thanks. --DAJF (talk) 02:02, 25 November 2015 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Omoto Station (Iwate), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Izumi 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.
