Wikipedia from time to time. If you leave a message here, I will notice it eventually.
I try to accept criticism of my edits and responsibility for my comments,

Akutagawa/Naoki dates[edit]

Thanks for your edit summary comment on Naoki dates in the Miyuki Miyabe article. Clarifying conferral date vs. award time frame is important. Following your lead I'll start using conferral date for the awards list and text, but also indicate the award time frame (e.g. 2003下) in the awards list. That should help clarify for readers why source articles say one year while the official list of winners sometimes indicates another. I've gone back through articles I've created or updated and made similar edits to keep things consistent. Good catch, thanks. Bakazaka (talk) 20:16, 9 August 2018 (UTC)

Hi Bakazaka, thanks for following up on this. I appreciate how much work it must be to standardize the dates–even academic sources tend to get them incorrect. Thanks for all the great work you've been doing on the literature articles. Dekimasuよ! 00:59, 13 August 2018 (UTC)

Bill Potts[edit]

Hi - on the Bill Potts close, would you mind a little more meat on the bones of your rationale and maybe weigh the strength of the arguments? Seems to me like the !opposes were largely based on a faulty premise - that articles on fictional characters have to meet a higher standard to be primarytopic. I and a few other editors noted that that is not the case in any WP policy, guideline, or essay. I'd appreciate a second look. Thanks! Dohn joe (talk) 16:19, 14 August 2018 (UTC)

I have added the following: "Although it is possible for a fictional character to be a primary topic for a search term, there is no consensus in this discussion that the Doctor Who character fulfills the long-term significance criterion of Wikipedia:Primary topic." It is difficult to add more than this–there is no requirement that fictional characters must meet a particular standard to be the primary topic, but at the same time, individual editors may have different perspectives on what is required in order to fulfill the long-term significance criterion, and discussions about adding explicit ways to measure long-term significance have not achieved consensus at Wikipedia:Disambiguation. I do not think the standard should be different for fictional characters, but there was still no apparent consensus as to long-term significance in the discussion at Talk:Bill Potts. Best, Dekimasuよ! 17:34, 14 August 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for the additional response. I would also quibble that the guideline does not state that there has to be long-term significance in order to have a primarytopic. Where we have such a strong primarytopic by usage, it seems reader-unfriendly to force them to a dab page. But c'est la vie. Dohn joe (talk) 22:33, 14 August 2018 (UTC)

Relisting move request[edit]

Hi, I would like to come back to you because you closed my move request: I attached a new official source to the article with the official naming of the command. Please look into it and relist my move request. Schariez (talk) 19:14, 14 August 2018 (UTC)

Hello Schariez. Since this was a request from two months ago, I have reformatted your comment at Talk:Cyber and Information Space Command (Germany) as a new move request rather than a relisting. Dekimasuよ! 19:28, 14 August 2018 (UTC)
Thank you very much for your help. It took some time to get an official article in English online. Schariez (talk) 19:31, 14 August 2018 (UTC)

RM close[edit]

Thanks for your contributions. However, regarding Talk:List of Persian Roman Catholic saints would you mind giving it a relist, since it is actually 2-2 stakes? WP:CONSISTENCY for article realm should perhaps merit at least one relist, shouldn't it? Thank you! Chicbyaccident (talk) 19:11, 15 August 2018 (UTC)

Chicbyaccident, I have relisted the proposal per your request, but the count wasn't a major factor here. If you'd like the request to have a better chance to go through, it would be worthwhile to respond to the concerns of the other editors. As an aside, while it appears that there were particular concerns regarding removing "Roman" here, that doesn't usually seem to be the case in these requests. Is there a reason you tend to introduce the move proposals separately instead of as a group? Best, Dekimasuよ! 19:17, 15 August 2018 (UTC)
Thanks. Well, I don't think there is lot of articles around that apply that formula. If you know more, feel free. Chicbyaccident (talk) 19:19, 15 August 2018 (UTC)

Luccombe, Isle of Wight[edit]

Wouldn't that have benefited from a relist. Even if "Luccombe" was the most common name then WP:NATURAL could apply, but I think the OS is a more appropriate source than Google Maps. Crouch, Swale (talk) 07:28, 17 August 2018 (UTC)

Hello Crouch, Swale, I will respond to this as soon as possible. Dekimasuよ! 19:18, 18 August 2018 (UTC)
I have relisted this per your request because I haven't had time to discuss the close in any detail. However, there are a few caveats that apply here and I hope they can be addressed in future move requests. First, the proposal is phrased in terms of favoring an WP:OFFICIAL name. Perhaps there is an argument to be made about the official name, but the OS name has little bearing on whether or not a disambiguation page is necessary, because it has already been demonstrated that Luccombe, Isle of Wight is at least sometimes called "Luccombe". Whether or not the disambiguation page is necessary or any of the pages should be moved hinges upon whether the names are in general, not official, use–and there hasn't been any evidence presented to show either that "Luccombe" usually refers to the place in Somerset or that the location on the Isle of Wight is usually called "Luccombe Village". The question is not whether to favor Google Maps over OS, but what a preponderance of sources show. Dekimasuよ! 17:37, 19 August 2018 (UTC)
Thanks I have replied there. My point was that I had replied to the "oppose" argument and no other comments had been made. Likewise I'd point out that if a RM debate has had no comments then it might be OK to close it as moved. As pointed out at WP:RMCI#Determining consensus unless the move is dubious or controversial its often enough that no one opposed to it, for example Maldon, Essex but I trust you're judgement on this. Crouch, Swale (talk) 08:06, 20 August 2018 (UTC)
Crouch, Swale, as you noted, there's no minimum level of participation for move discussions. Whether or not I relist a move discussion that has no responses usually has to do mainly with the complexity of the issues raised by the request (including whether the nomination references relevant policies and guidelines), whether it is likely to have been read by any editors with sufficient competency in the subject area (that is, unopposed requests on pages with greater exposure are more likely to be uncontroversial), and whether the issue has been discussed in the past. Where I've not closed your recent move proposals, usually it is the second of these that gives me enough pause to relist the discussion. However, it's also the case that clear evidence of the WP:COMMONNAME in rationales would usually be enough to put these through.
Thanks for the vote of confidence in my judgment; I try to deal with these in a reasonable fashion, despite the backlog. Dekimasuよ! 02:43, 23 August 2018 (UTC)

Change of article name from Casma/Sechin culture to Sechin Complex[edit]

Today you changed the title of the Casma/Sechin culture article to Sechin Complex.

Apparently you requested the move on August 17, but my watchlist does not indicate any changes in the Casma/Sechin article on that day or any proposal to move the article. Had I known of the proposed move, I would certainly have commented, and probably opposed the move.

My problem is that the title Sechin Complex is not inclusive enough to describe the topic. The several archaeological remains of the culture are found not only in the Sechin River valley, but also in the Casma River Valley. The title Sechin Complex might be interpreted to exclude the ruins in the Casma Valley. The title Casma/Sechin culture makes clear that all these ruins were similar in culture, existed contemporaneously, and were possibly politically united for part of their 2,000 year history.

Yes, the name Sechin Complex is often used to describe this grouping of ancient settlements. However, as several of the ruins already bear the Sechin name (Sechin Alto, Sechin Bajo, and Cerro Sechin), I also thought it would be better if the article bore a more encompassing and less confusing name than Sechin Complex.

There is also precedent. The culture found about 100 miles distant is described in the article titled Norte Chico civilization. One reason that title was chosen was that it is more inclusive than other possible titles such as Caral and Caral-Supe civilizations.

I'm not going to wrestle you down to the mat on this issue, but I am irritated that the watchlist system failed to notify me of the proposed change.Smallchief (talk) 02:55, 25 August 2018 (UTC)

Hello Smallchief, please note that I did not request the move, but only followed through on the unopposed request. Perhaps you would receive better feedback from Koavf, who filed the proposal. It should have shown up on your watchlist, however, according to the page history. In this particular case, I will revert the change and relist the discussion to give you the opportunity to respond at Talk:Casma/Sechin culture. Perhaps there is some way both to satisfy MOS:SLASH and to address your concerns. Dekimasuよ! 03:04, 25 August 2018 (UTC)
Thanks. Sorry to attribute the change of name to you. To put it mildly I'm not technically savvy. Smallchief (talk) 03:19, 25 August 2018 (UTC)

Zakarid Armenia[edit]

Hello, because you were the closer of the move request on Talk:Zakarid Armenia, I would like for you to reconsider the result in order to avoid the lengthy WP:MR process. I had established that Zakarid Armenia is by far the more WP:COMMONNAME. Considering that "the debate is not a vote" and "valid arguments will be given more weight than unsupported statements", this should've been convincing enough to move the article. And even if you do not believe it is sufficient, please consider the article had been named Zakarid Armenia for years until it was recently moved with no discussion taking place (and articles can't be moved back to a previous name by regular users). So if you still consider there to be no consensus, then reverting the article back to Zakarid Armenia should've still been the correct result. Étienne Dolet (talk) 16:50, 26 August 2018 (UTC)

Move review for Armenia within the Kingdom of Georgia[edit]

An editor has asked for a Move review of Armenia within the Kingdom of Georgia. Because you closed the move discussion for this page, or otherwise were interested in the page, you might want to participate in the move review. Étienne Dolet (talk) 17:01, 11 October 2018 (UTC)

I have replied there. I am sorry that you had to wait so long for a resolution to this. Dekimasuよ! 06:04, 13 October 2018 (UTC)

Moving templates[edit]

Hi, when you move a template, please check whether there is a "name" parameter within the template. If so, this needs to be updated to match the new page name.

This applies to all stub templates and navigation templates, and probably others too.

I mention it because you did not update the parameter after doing the requested move of Template:RC-society-stub to Template:Catholic-Church-society-stub.

I hope this is helpful. Thanks for all you do here! – Fayenatic London 09:17, 21 September 2018 (UTC)

Corn, N64 Emulator listed at Redirects for discussion[edit]


An editor has asked for a discussion to address the redirect Corn, N64 Emulator. Since you had some involvement with the Corn, N64 Emulator redirect, you might want to participate in the redirect discussion if you have not already done so. — Rhododendrites talk \\ 01:48, 30 September 2018 (UTC)

I have replied. Thank you for the notification. Best, Dekimasuよ! 06:04, 13 October 2018 (UTC)

Unprotect request[edit]

Hi Dekimasu. You protected the page Template:Lookfrom. It was subsequently made a redirect after the template was moved, and thus the original basis for protection, that it is a high-risk template, no longer applies. Could you unprotect the page? It would also facilitate a pending edit request. Thanks. --Bsherr (talk) 21:02, 7 October 2018 (UTC)

I am not sure that this is a good idea, since there are still a large number of pages that link to the old title. Because I am unable to be active at the moment, I'd suggest that you ask for review of the issue from another administrator. Best, Dekimasuよ! 06:04, 13 October 2018 (UTC)
