About your suggestion[edit]

You said "if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page".But your talk page is written "don't response".Why? I know peter frankl very well,from the time I was junior school student.You missed. Peter frankl is very frankly."He calculated multiplication of two digits when he was four years old" What couldn't you understand?--Takahiro4 (talk) 20:01, 16 January 2016 (UTC)

It says that discussions should remain in one place. But as you have decided to bring the conversation here, then fair enough... --DAJF (talk) 05:42, 17 January 2016 (UTC)

I think I edit about japanese article.Do you know that word like daijobanai is not exist? How much do you know japanese?--Takahiro4 (talk) 21:23, 16 January 2016 (UTC)

As the article explains, it is a casual (slang) corruption. Maybe you weren't familiar with the Perfume track "Daijobanai" (see [1]), but please be be careful about removing details just because you don't know about them. --DAJF (talk) 05:42, 17 January 2016 (UTC)
It was not written song of Perfume.Perfume only use. It isn't needed extremely rare cases.And what is example of daijonda?--Takahiro4 (talk) 09:33, 17 January 2016 (UTC)
The text does actually explain that while "daijobanai" is possible and sometimes seen, "daijonda" is not ( is not otherwise conjugated, for example as *daijo-nda). Do you see? That's why it does not make sense to remove the section for the reason that "daijonda" does not exist when the text itself is actually saying that it does not exist. --DAJF (talk) 09:45, 17 January 2016 (UTC)

Shouta Aoi edits[edit]

I was editing Shouta Aoi page. that is look like his japanese wikipedia. i don't make any english translation, i just make how to read it, i even put the japanese word on it. is even look more neat after i edit it... why you should to revert my last change ? i was fine with other change that being reverted.. i though my english not enough.. but now only make album page more neat ? please.. check the japanese wikipedia of him to know it ! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Anggie takasili (talkcontribs) 18:43, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

@Anggie takasili: Hi. I'm afraid I really don't understand what you are trying to say, and unfortunately the text you added to the Shouta Aoi article was equally incomprehensible. I would suggest that you offer your services on the Wikipedia project in your native language, as you can probably contribute more productively there. --DAJF (talk) 07:03, 28 January 2016 (UTC)

Warabitai Station[edit]

Hi Dave, just a quick note on Warabitai Station article where you reverted my edits. I just wanted to note that I was merely providing a quick translation of the Japanese version of the Wikipedia article into English; the original text being, "当駅は、JRの駅を五十音順に並べたとき最後になる。"; of course this seems to note only "JR Stations". If this is incorrect I we should also delete the Japanese language text also? (talk) 01:46, 29 January 2016 (UTC)

Hi. If you can provide a source for that, we could re-add it, but is that claim significant in an English-language article where the Japanese "gojuon" order doesn't have much significance? Using Japanese Wikipedia articles as a source of possible information to include in articles is great, but you have to be careful about simply translating text without adding sources, as Japanese Wikipedia is not infallible, and I often come across errors and inaccuracies that are not supported by reliable third-party sources. --DAJF (talk) 03:28, 29 January 2016 (UTC)

General Question about Cross Language Articles[edit]

We are allowed to use Japanese sources to reference English language articles if the subject matter is Japan related and its reliable and relevant right? i just wanted to know for the future. You seem to know about this so wanted some feedback before I go edit etc — Preceding unsigned comment added by FOSBusters (talkcontribs) 11:23, 30 January 2016 (UTC)

@FOSBusters: Please remember to sign your comments by adding four tildes (~~~~) at the end.
In answer to your question, there is generally no problem in using non-English language sources to verify details in English Wikipedia articles, and Japanese language sources will often be the only ones available for articles about Japanese subjects. You can confirm this and read more details in the official guidelines at WP:NONENG. Hope this helps. --DAJF (talk) 13:20, 30 January 2016 (UTC)

Tomoharu Katsumata - Ginga: Nagareboshi Gin[edit]

Ok. So you removed my adding about Ginga: Nagareboshi Gin from Tomoharu Katsumata's page because of missing a citation or do you mean a quotation? Anyway there's no need for such a thing! If you go to the Ginga: Nagareboshi Gin wikipedia page, you can clearly see that it says Tomoharu Katsumata as a director in the anime television series section. You don't have to add all quotations or citations always if there's already a whole wikipedia page about it. Those other series doesn't have a citation either, why don't you remove them? There's an imdb and Anime news network added in the reference section, and that's really only what it needs. Also.. if you mean about "most notable" that needs a citation, Ginga: Nagareboshi Gin - anime has been a very big thing in the Nordic countries since 1989 and it was a very notable popular in Japan also in 1986. Many praised as a masterpiece of Katsumata's work even in Japan. Watch it if you don't believe. So.. if you need to just remove a citation, why don't you just remove the "most notable" if you are skeptical about the popularity. Otherwise, you can even google to see, that the director of Ginga: Nagareboshi Gin really is Tomoharu Katsumata. (talk) 10:07, 8 February 2016 (UTC)

Hi. Yes, you guessed correctly: I removed it because the subjective claim that it was "most notable" was unsourced. Please remember that the onus to source statements lies with the editor that adds them (see WP:BURDEN), so just saying "you can look it up on Google" is unfortunately not a valid response. If you have time, please try and add sources for some of the other statements in that article too, as neither imdb and Anime News are really reliable sources for a biographical article about a living person. --DAJF (talk) 11:49, 8 February 2016 (UTC)
No. I didn't say "most notable". I said "one" of the most notable. There's a big difference about that. Some interesting trivia about Ginga: Nagareboshi Gin: I have the DVD box made in Japan saying director Tomoharu Katsumata along with a DVD box published in Finland which are realiable sources. In 2003 Finland became the first ever Western country to publish the fully uncut version (1989 VHS-versions were heavily cut because of too much blood and gore for children with quite bad audio-dub) with original Japanese audio and translated subtitles. I really don't have time to link all the information in the wikipedia page. Anyway.. the way you put it now is OK. Just keep in mind that Ginga: Nagareboshi Gin must be mentioned in the Tomoharu Katsumata's article because it really is his most known work in the Western countries and I don't mean only Nordic countries. It doesn't matter if it's not been licensed in the USA. (talk) 12:47, 8 February 2016 (UTC)

Tobu Railway Noda Line Comment[edit]

I believe that per the news release made by Tobu Railway, [2], the name "Tobu Urban Park Line" was only created as a nickname (路線愛称名) of the line on April 1, 2014; and the official name of the line still remains the Tobu Noda Line, as reflected on the Tobu home page ( and other official announcements by the company. Unless you have other information? --MChew (talk) 14:35, 11 February 2016 (UTC)

Hi. That's interesting, as all official signage is now universally "Tobu Urban Park Line", and anything mentioning "Noda Line" has effectively been removed from the public eye. Note that "nickname" is not always an accurate translation of "愛称名", and in this case "common name" or even "branding" would probably be more accurate. The same applies to the Tobu Skytree Line. --DAJF (talk) 14:43, 11 February 2016 (UTC)

About Mister Donut[edit]

Hello. I am Hippojunior5. Thank you for your message. I am a beginner of using (editing) Wikipedia, so I am sorry for not having added the proper citation. The resource which I read was here: (in Japanese) It says the first shop was opened in 1971 in Minoo, Osaka. Also, it says that, as of 2015, the total number of the shops is 1,294. So, I added the information about the Minoo shop and changed to "around 1,300". Thank you. Hippojunior5 (talk) 05:48, 12 February 2016 (UTC)

Hi. Please try and sign your name at the end of comments. I'm not entirely sure how reliable the source you mention is, but I have added the opening date of the first Japanese outlet to the article - sourced to the official website. Unfortunately the other changes you made to the article, such as the date the franchise was acquired by Duskin, contradicted the reliable source already quoted, so that was why they had to be undone. If you have a reliable source for the current number of outlets in Japan, that would be useful to add to the article. Thanks. --DAJF (talk) 08:04, 12 February 2016 (UTC)
Hi. Thank you for your reply. I'm sorry maybe I pressed the button at the beginning of my message. Here is another source (the official website): [3] It says that 箕面 (Minoo) store opened in 1971. Also, it says that in 1971 the second outlet (the first franchised store) opened in 京橋 (kyoobashi),Osaka.
And the link says business department, Duskin Food Industry (DFI), started in 1978, which is not what the current Wiki page says. And [4]. It says nothing about Duskin Co,.Ltd. in 1983. Thank you.Hippojunior5 (talk) 06:11, 13 February 2016 (UTC)
Thanks, I've updated the article to indicate that the first outlet was opened in Minoh. Note that 1983 is the year Duskin acquired the rights to franchise Mister Donut throughout Japan and Asia. That's why it's different from the entry on the official Mister Donut website. --DAJF (talk) 09:16, 14 February 2016 (UTC)

I see. I misunderstood. And thank you for your editing. Hippojunior5 (talk) 04:20, 16 February 2016 (UTC)

You see, I am in a hurry...[edit]

Probably you are right about what to do or not to do in the Wikipedia, but I see the Wikipedia as an effort to organize the whole Internet, selecting the best stuff from other sites. I found Mr Saito's article in a link of the Wikipedia, and maybe my translation will become a reference for the Spanish article on Japanese railways... Who knows. So I want to contact Mr Saito ASAP because he must be quite old, if he still lives... Asking for help here seemed sensible, since there is someone here that values his work as highly as me. And he or she understands English... I think that most Japanese don't really understand English, have got some puzzling responses when trying to get a message forwarded to Mr Saito...

Caution 3RR violation[edit]

You did.[5]--Takahiro4 (talk) 02:55, 19 April 2016 (UTC)

(Talk page watcher) Are you referring to the four edits that were performed on 21 July 2015? I'm not sure why you are upset with DAJF, but messages such as this are not going to help anybody. AtHomeIn神戸 (talk) 04:15, 19 April 2016 (UTC)
Wikipedia is eternal.So, for example may I return that edits?--Takahiro4 (talk) 07:46, 19 April 2016 (UTC)
You could if you want to, but did you actually look at the IP's edits that were reverted? They removed the little boxes next to the line names, but kept the code that assigns colours to them. If you think Wikipedia is improved if it has colours assigned to empty spaces, then go right ahead and revert DAJF. I wouldn't expect such a change to last long though... AtHomeIn神戸 (talk) 08:19, 19 April 2016 (UTC)
Actually,reverts of DAJF and some administrators were often not correct.But I knew these things from the beginning.He brought youtube source to beat me.The user who did long discussion is him.There is no reason which I stop to edit. Also unfortunately, your suspicion against me is wrong.

--Takahiro4 (talk) 10:47, 19 April 2016 (UTC)

I don't have any suspicions about you. I'm just trying to give you some advice. Maybe you are right and DAJF is wrong. I've got no idea what you're arguing about so I can't comment on that. But this is what I do know, digging up 3RR violations from 9 months ago and issuing "warnings" about it is not going to help you. It makes you look petty and desperate to make DAJF look bad. Concentrate on the actual issues and you will get a happier result. AtHomeIn神戸 (talk) 11:58, 19 April 2016 (UTC)
So,this is not happy talk.Because mr.Athomeinkobe came, although I say the answer,"DAJF, did you understand the meaning of fair? I just warned like you,too."--Takahiro4 (talk) 12:21, 19 April 2016 (UTC)

Shouta Aoi‎ (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views) Hi, i was confused about my last edit. shouta aoi real name are exist before for a long time as yanagawa noboru, it's just at 14:43, 15 May 2016‎ someone without wikipedia id are edited his real name in romaji to shouta yanagawa while she/he keep the kanji same. so i fixed the romaji right back. but why you suddenly deleted it? and now i even can't added it back to how it used to be? it was exist before.. and i just fixed the mistake that anonymous who mess his real name in romaji. i wish it appear again, his real name... talking about real source, i don't know but it's clearly his real name that he talk in his radio too before.. did many of biography of singer is also not put a real name with source? if it's used to be there for long why suddenly you deleted it? you know what you do can make people suspicious? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Lucia kwon (talkcontribs)

@Lucia kwon: Hi. Please try to add new comments at the bottom of the page in future to help maintain normal chronological order, and please remember to sign your comments (using four tildes - ~~~~). If you have a reliable source for the person's birth name or real name, please add it to the article. If not, such details should be left out, as they violate our policy regarding biographies of living persons. If you haven't yet read through the guidelines, I would strongly suggest taking the time to read them. Also, the fact that other articles may have unsourced material is an WP:OTHERSTUFF argument, and does not make the problem any more acceptable. --DAJF (talk) 01:00, 22 May 2016 (UTC)

Sagamihara stabbings revision[edit]

Hi, I noticed your removal of my addition to the Sagamihara stabbings page. You removed where I added "...committed on Japanese soil..." Why? It's much less accurate to not include that, as the statement redirects to another page about stabbings on Japanese territory. Not to mention, frankly, it's offensive to name that as "one of the worst attacks in modern Japanese history," because it basically compares it to the mass murder of Chinese people by the Japanese. Thank you. Jonahpoke92 (talk) 00:57, 27 July 2016 (UTC)

@Jonahpoke92: Hi. Thanks for pointing that out. It was not actually my intention to remove the "...committed on Japanese soil..." statement you added, and it looks like I just missed it because our edits overlapped by a matter of seconds. I have restored your wording in this edit just now. Looking at it again, it might be more elegant to rephrase it as "committed on Japanese soil in modern history", as having two occurrences of "Japanese" in close succession looks somewhat redundant, but I'll leave that for you or another editor to tweak if necessary. Anyway, sorry for causing any confusion. --DAJF (talk) 12:19, 27 July 2016 (UTC)
@DAJF: Oh, alright then. Thank you! You're right, the way you said it is definitely worded better. Thank you for the help! :-)

September 2016[edit]

Information icon Constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, but a recent edit that you made to User_talk:ZH8000#September_2016 has been reverted or removed because it was a misuse of a warning or blocking template. Please use the user warnings sandbox for any tests you may want to do, or take a look at our introduction page to learn more about contributing to the encyclopedia. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you may leave a message on my talk page. It's so easy to apply a template ;-) ZH8000 (talk) 12:11, 10 September 2016 (UTC)

@ZH8000: Hi. You are of course entirely free to remove the warning message once you've read it, but adding it certainly wasn't a misuse, as it was a timely reminder that you were edit-warring and heading into 3RR territory.
I have made some suggestions on how to improve the wording of the "International relations" section of the Tokyo article at the Talk page, so I hope you can respond there. Thanks. --DAJF (talk) 12:44, 10 September 2016 (UTC)
