Thank You![edit]

Hello G S Palmer. Thank you very much for the Barnstar award you gave me yesterday. I'll definitely do my best to make sure 2016 in anime and other anime/manga-related articles are as updated as they can be. :) Dynasty889 12:07, 7 April 2016 (BST)

Twin Star Exorcists[edit]

Hi. I really didn't think that my edit in Twin Star Exorcists would be controversial; it is actually common practice. You can see this in Naruto, Blue Exorcist, Soul Eater, Go! Princess PreCure, Case Closed or Magi. The editors of the Japanese Wikipedia article of Twin Star Exorcists do this too; they mention 「テレビ東京系」 in the infobox and link it to the TXN article.

Daytime anime series are generally simulcasts on the major Japanese TV Networks (NNS, FNS, ANN, JNN or TXN), which means that they air on all member channels simultaneously. I think that simply mentioning the Network (+the channel that produces the show) instead of every single channel that airs the show is a sensible and practical approach, especially for series like Case Closed, Blue Exorcist and the like which air on more than 20 channels! This is how it is done at Japanese Wikipedia too. See for example 僕のヒーローアカデミア. Raamin (talk) 04:33, 11 April 2016 (UTC)

Can u plz update the info... of 3rd episode too

Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress[edit]

Hi,

Apologies for linking to KissAnime, as this was available internationally online.

However I believe that the summary is still valid as the version I watched was broadcast on the Fuji Television Network.

Therefore, I believe the summary (as edited below) should be reinstated. A a reference to "http://www.fujitv.co.jp/en/a_16_04.html" can be added if you think it's necessary.

"The Kotetsujyo armored steam train is preparing to pass through an abandoned railway station that has been overrun by Kabane. It is attacked and Bushi (soldiers) who manage to repel them with their steam guns. A Bushi is bitten and his only choice is to use a suicide bag, otherwise the other Bushi must shoot him before he becomes a Kabane. Meanwhile at the train’s destination, Arawakin station, Ikoma is working on a powerful gun called Tsuranukizutsu to kill the Kabane. The train arrives at Arawakin station and Ikoma illegally collects some Kabane body parts. Surprisingly, Kensho, head of the Yomokawa family excuses two passengers from the mandatory Kabane inspection, Shimon-sama and Mumei who are headed for Kongokaku. Ikoma is jailed for insubordination and is secretly visited by Mumei that night as she is intrigued by his attitude and interest in the Kabane. Later that night the next train, Husoujyo arrives at the station. The defensive drawbridge is lowered, but the train has been taken over by Kabane who crash it into the defending wall, allowing them to attack Arawakin station. Ikoma escapes and runs home to try his gun, with which successfully kills a Kabane who he has lured to his house. Unfortunately he is bitten and begins to become a Kabane. He uses a number of painful techniques to stop the virus reaching his brain and successfully stops it, reverting to his human form. Meanwhile Mumei is attacked by a Kabane, but she kills it with a blade hidden in her shoe." — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ricbolzan (talkcontribs) 02:55, 15 April 2016 (UTC)

@Ricbolzan: I have added the episode summary to the article. Generally, a source isn't needed for a plot summary, as the work itself is considered the source. G S Palmer (talkcontribs) 11:20, 15 April 2016 (UTC)

Fine, thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ricbolzan (talkcontribs) 12:48, 15 April 2016 (UTC)

Interlanguage links[edit]

Hi I've been finding articles without interlanguage links using this tool. For some of them there isn't an exact corresponding article but only a section of an article, so that's why I'm listing them at the bottom of the page, and I'm listing the redirects instead of the section titles because I'm hoping they'll be more resilient or be eventually filled. As you found out, Wikidata doesn't support sections of articles or redirects. Hope that clears the situation up, though if you have any issues with the interlanguage links in general I'd be happy to discuss them. Opencooper (talk) 15:53, 17 April 2016 (UTC)

Episode Table layout[edit]

HI. I'm interested in your feedback on Episode Table layout - I'm proposing separate headings for English, Romanji and Kanji titles. See sample at: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Kabaneri_of_the_Iron_Fortress As a person with a database background I find all of the titles inserted into one Title cell unhelpful and poor information management.Ricbolzan (talk) 21:36, 17 April 2016 (UTC)

Thanks, I've weighed in with my opinion. You're probably not going to like it, though. G S Palmer (talkcontribs) 21:51, 17 April 2016 (UTC)

It also appears that the colour issue has stirred the pot. Ricbolzan (talk) 21:27, 18 April 2016 (UTC)

Chinese Titles[edit]

Hi. Following up on the previous point, do you know of a template similar to the "Japanese episode list" for Chinese and Pinyin? Ricbolzan (talk) 03:08, 18 April 2016 (UTC)

@Ricbolzan: I don't, sorry. I looked around a bit to see if there is one, but it appears that there isn't. G S Palmer (talkcontribs) 13:10, 18 April 2016 (UTC)

Thanks anyway. Ricbolzan (talk) 21:27, 18 April 2016 (UTC)

Ajin: Demi-Human[edit]

I see that you are also involved in this page. I've just started writing episode summaries, although I may not play with the colours! Ric Bolzan, AKA Ozflashman (talk) 05:42, 19 April 2016 (UTC)

Re removing the link to the Ajin Wiki. That wiki is a multi contribution wiki (see WikiActivity) with 70 pages and a good resource - regardless of its poor visual design. I've just written 13 summaries for this series and, along with the official website, it provided useful background and character material. I think it is a valid reference and should be reinstated. Ozflashman (talk) 14:14, 20 April 2016 (UTC)

@Ozflashman: I used to link to external wikis from time to time also. But after being reverted a few times, I took a long hard look at WP:ELNO and decided it was probably best to avoid using those kind of links. However, if you really think the link will help the article and isn't in violation of WP:ELNO point 12, I suggest bringing it up for discussion either at WP:ELN or WT:ANIME, or both. You'll be able to get neutral feedback there from editors who will assess whether the wiki has a "substantial history of stability and a substantial number of editors" or not.
By the way, did you see my note on your talk page about the use of multiple accounts? I'm not saying you are in violation, just suggesting that you take steps to ensure that you aren't. Best, G S Palmer (talkcontribs) 14:24, 20 April 2016 (UTC)

Attack on Titan[edit]

Hey,

About the formatting: you still haven't explained what "looks horrible" about the original formatting ("original", since that's what used to be on List of Attack on Titan chapters). It actually saves quite a lot of characters, too.

About the titles.. First off, I don't understand why you're asking me what the mistakes are when you could just look for the changes. Then, yes, you copy/pasted those from the official site, but as it happens, the official site has made several mistakes. Erigu (talk) 14:55, 20 April 2016 (UTC)

@Erigu: Okay, first off, let me say that I'm sorry. You were right about the title of chapter 3 being wrong. I've fixed it.
As for what "looks horrible", I was referring to the large blank space that was left in the column for the Japanese release dates. G S Palmer (talkcontribs) 15:20, 20 April 2016 (UTC)
No problem about the title thing. It is a bit annoying when official websites make mistakes like that. The same thing happened with Before the Fall, by the way, and that's what caused some of the mistakes I was referring to.
About the formatting, I'm afraid I don't quite follow you, sorry. I don't see any large blank space left in the Japanese release dates column, really. It looks just like the English release dates one, as far as I can tell? Erigu (talk) 15:29, 20 April 2016 (UTC)
I misspoke: it makes both the release date columns look bloated, not just the Japanese one. Take a look at the current revision and compare it to this revision - adding "(special edition)" to the ISBN columns makes the release part of the table taller. Combine that with removing the dates from the ja dates column, and you end up with a bunch of blank space in the table. G S Palmer (talkcontribs) 15:38, 20 April 2016 (UTC)
Ah, I see what you mean. That's not an issue for me unless I change the size of my browser window...
As for removing the dates from the ja dates column... Well, there really is no need to put the same dates twice, is there? It's also a bit odd to me to specify "regular"/"special" (note that it's actually called "special" rather than "limited"... details, I know ^^;) for the date (when it's the same anyway) rather than for the ISBNs (i.e. where the distinction actually matters).
(As a side note: it may be included in the US version (I honestly don't know), but "Prologue" isn't in the first Japanese volume. It was only made available as a separate booklet included with the special edition.)
Also, what shall we do regarding the Before the Fall article? Is there something that bothers you about the original list? It was more accurate (the new list has the mistakes I mentioned above, plus some romanization errors) and used far less characters, which is why I didn't think somebody would object to simply keeping it. Erigu (talk) 16:05, 20 April 2016 (UTC)
No, you're probably right - I'll remove the duplicated dates. Efficiency over appearance or something like that.
As far as the BtF article goes, I corrected the release date errors (I think). Are there others that you're referring to? I thought I made sure that all your Romanization fixes stayed when I copy-pasted some of the original list formatting in. And I'm pretty sure the reduced character count comes from removing the |trans-title= parameter from the citations.
And about the "Prologue" in No Regrets, the English translation does include it in the main volume (scroll down to the table of contents). That's an interesting fact about it being a booklet in the special edition - do you have a source for that so you can add it to the article? G S Palmer (talkcontribs) 16:21, 20 April 2016 (UTC)
@Erigu: There, I fixed it. I guess it doesn't look quite as bad as I thought it did at first glance. G S Palmer (talkcontribs) 16:30, 20 April 2016 (UTC)
For the Prologue, I didn't find a Kōdansha source, but there would be this, for example. Also, just in case: technically, that's just part of the additional booklet's contents (it also contains character sketches, stuff like that).
Regarding the character count, note that the original list for Before the Fall (and No Regret as well, actually) also used far shorter URLs for the English language releases.
As you may have gathered by now (^^;), I would have preferred to simply keep/revert to the original list, but I guess I'll just fix the remaining mistakes...
PS: Only tangentially related, but I noticed that edit, and I thought you might be interested. That name (which was there from the beginning, since you were wondering) actually wasn't vandalism: "Akiguchi Giggle" is a pen name of Kawakami Ryō. Not sure why the person who created that article didn't simply use the author's real name, but there you go! Erigu (talk) 17:04, 20 April 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for fixing that. For some reason, capitalization in titles is one of the rules I have trouble remembering. G S Palmer (talkcontribs) 17:34, 20 April 2016 (UTC)
@Erigu: Now that I've trimmed the URLs down, I'm pretty sure the remaining extra characters can be attributed to the addition of the trans-title parameter. And while I (guess) I can see why you'd like to keep the "original" formatting, I think it's better to have the table layout and citation formats in the article be consistent. G S Palmer (talkcontribs) 17:45, 20 April 2016 (UTC)
@Erigu: I added the info about the special edition booklet to the article, but since I don't speak Japanese (obviously) I had to rely on Google Translate. Would you mind checking to see if it's correct/if I translated the title of the article correctly? (I did my best.) Thanks. G S Palmer (talkcontribs) 00:43, 21 April 2016 (UTC)
Your translation looks perfectly fine to me. Erigu (talk) 05:17, 21 April 2016 (UTC)

May 2016[edit]

Information icon Hello G S Palmer. Thanks for patrolling new pages – it's a very important task! I'm just letting you know, however, that you shouldn't tag pages as lacking context (CSD A1) and content (CSD A3) moments after they are created, as you did at M&R Company. It is also suggested that pages that might meet CSD A7 criteria not be tagged for deletion immediately after they are created. It's usually best to wait at least 10–15 minutes for more content to be added if the page is very short, and the articles should not be marked as patrolled. Tagging such pages in a very short space of time may drive away well-meaning contributors, which is not good for Wikipedia. Attack pages (G10), blatant nonsense (G1), copyright violations (G12) and pure vandalism/blatant hoaxes (G3) should of course be tagged and deleted immediately. Thanks. Adam9007 (talk) 16:37, 1 May 2016 (UTC)

@Adam9007: True, but in this specific case, a quick Google search reveals no coverage that might convey notability to the subject. G S Palmer (talkcontribs) 16:41, 1 May 2016 (UTC)
That's not the point. You should still give the author a chance to establish notability. Adam9007 (talk) 16:43, 1 May 2016 (UTC)
@Adam9007: It is the point. In cases like this it seems very likely that the creator has a close connection to the subject. What's the point of letting the article disappear behind all the other new articles that are being created? G S Palmer (talkcontribs) 16:47, 1 May 2016 (UTC)
Do you have any evidence for a COI? It's also not an excuse to tag articles seconds after creation. Adam9007 (talk) 16:51, 1 May 2016 (UTC)
@Adam9007: Huh, was it just a few seconds? I didn't notice, since I didn't look at the timestamp. You're right, that was probably a bit speedy (pardon the pun). And no, I don't have any evidence for COI. It just seems likely. G S Palmer (talkcontribs) 16:55, 1 May 2016 (UTC)

Plz unblock Myurpankhi[edit]

Thanks. Mitia Osman tisma CEO & Proprietor — Preceding unsigned comment added by 103.43.150.146 (talk) 19:35, 1 May 2016 (UTC)

The article Myurpankhi (edit | talk | history | links | watch | logs) was deleted because it didn't seem to be notable (see our notability guideline for companies). If you believe that the article is notable in the sense described in that notability guideline (i.e., it has significant coverage in notable, independent sources), then I suggest that you submit a draft of an article for approval at WP:AFC. Also, since you say that you are the CEO of the company, you may want to read our conflict of interest]. G S Palmer (talkcontribs) 20:22, 1 May 2016 (UTC)

Vestal Claret[edit]

Hi GS Palmer, I'm writing to ask that you remove the request for speedy deletion on the page titled "Vestal Claret." The band has existed for ten years and has received enough press coverage in heavy metal publications to make it notable in that community. (Citations have been improved.) Furthermore, the tag cites "significance," and according to Wikipedia's criteria for deletion page, "A claim of significance need not pass any of the general or specialized notability guidelines, such as general notability guideline, music notability, or biography notability guideline." Therefore, while Wikipedia may ultimately determine that the band does not meet broader notability requirements, it shouldn't be flagged for speedy deletion when there are many secondary sources showing significance.

Also, please see the comments in the talk section of the page. Thank you,.Emeraldlady31 (talk) 02:56, 3 May 2016 (UTC)Emerald Lady

 Done, seems to be significant converge in reliable sources, as you say. G S Palmer (talkcontribs) 13:09, 3 May 2016 (UTC)

Alita: Battle Angel[edit]

Hello Palmer! You really did a great job at Alita: Battle Angel but it's too soon for a film article for which we don't even have an production start date. I think we should follow WP:NFF and keep the article into draft until filming begins, and by looking at the significant sources you've added, at least keep it there until a production start date announced. If you agree, I'll ask an admin to HISTMERGE the article into Draft:Alita: Battle Angel, and you can contribute the draft, which will be moved back to mainspace when filming begins. Now what do you say? --Captain Assassin! «TCG» 08:54, 4 May 2016 (UTC)

@Captain Assassin!: Thanks. However, I think that WP:NFF is subservient (is that the word?) to WP:GNG, which this article clearly passes. The film has been receiving significant coverage for ~13 years now - long enough that it's a topic worthy of being covered in the encyclopedia; plus, the article is clearly too long to be a subsection of the main Battle Angel Alita article. So yes, I object a little bit. G S Palmer (talkcontribs) 11:42, 4 May 2016 (UTC)
Yeah you are right, but we can move this lengthy article to the draft and then shrink the subsection a bit. --Captain Assassin! «TCG» 11:55, 4 May 2016 (UTC)
@Captain Assassin!: I see what you're saying, but I must disagree. I think the subject clearly meets the standards to have an article about it, and thus, it should stay where it is, and not be moved to draftspace/merged into Battle Angel Alita.
However, if it is moved to draftspace against my objections, I see no reason to histmerge it. Histmerges are to be used solely for the purpose of giving proper attribution to prevent copyright violations. Since I didn't use any of the content from the previous draft (in fact, I wasn't even aware that it existed) I see no reason to histmerge the two; in fact, such a move would make the page history misleading. Better to have an admin delete the draft and move this page over it. G S Palmer (talkcontribs) 13:21, 4 May 2016 (UTC)

MAMMOTOME® Device Article Collaboration?[edit]

Hi, it appears that you didn't like our changes on the MAMMOTOME® device entry and reverted it to your earlier entry (21 October 2014, Reversion to Revision 614638707). We made the edits to correct the improper usage of the MAMMOTOME® registered trademark as a noun when it should be an adjective referring to a specific medical device, i.e. “the Mammotome® device …” instead of the improper and generic “a Mammotome ...” We also wanted to make it clear that MAMMOTOME is a registered trademark of Devicor Medical Products, Inc. and its affiliated companies in the USA and in other countries as well. The purpose for our edits is to protect Devicor’s trademark as, over time, a registered trademark that is used in a generic way will lose trademark protection. Devicor enjoys a tremendous amount of goodwill associated with the MAMMOTOME® mark and it is a valuable asset of Devicor. Many look first at Wikipedia for information on medical devices and procedures, and for this reason, the proper use of Devicor’s trademark is critical. The Wikipedia article about the MAMMOTOME® device also references the U.S. National Cancer Institute’s “Dictionary of Cancer Terms.” Please note that the U.S. National Cancer Institute has changed its entry to use MAMMOTOME® properly as a trademark and to note that MAMMOTOME is a registered trademark of Devicor Medical Products, Inc. We would appreciate it if the Wikipedia article incorporated our edits to protect the MAMMOTOME® registered trademark.

Please let us know whether you would like to collaborate on such an entry?

I have no interest in working further on the article, but will revert your edits if I see you adding "®" to the article, as that makes the page appear unencyclopedic. If you object to the situation, I suggest posting at WT:MED or a similar page and seeing what their reaction is, but before you do, you may want to read our conflict of interest guideline. G S Palmer (talkcontribs) 21:55, 12 May 2016 (UTC)

Gene, as it seems that your concern hinges around the use of the circle R “®”, can you agree that the article instead simply state that Mammotome is a registered trademark of Devicor Medical Products, Inc. We will make this edit and also edit the use of the Mammotome name as an adjective modifying the word “device” instead of the improper noun usage. Agreed? 69.61.131.58 (talk) 20:48, 26 July 2016 (UTC)Daya Patibandla, Esq., Frost Brown Todd LLC, outside counsel for Devicor Medical Products, Inc.

Hi G.S., we've made the changes discussed above. We also wanted to call to your attention that the image pictured on the page does not show an actual Mammotome device. We are unsure of the origin of the device pictured, so we changed that caption to "Schematic representation of a vacuum-assisted biopsy probe".

Black Clover chapter titles[edit]

I got the titles from the Black Clover Wiki. If there is a problem with this than I can go to the official Viz translations on their website to get the titles they listed. I only got them from the wiki because it would save time. Plus, I think they use the same titles from the Viz translations anyway. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ichigo341578926 (talkcontribs) 19:57, 16 June 2016 (UTC)

Well, turns out that some (not all) were a few words off so I changed the translated titles to what Viz had on their official translations for chapters 26 to 65, due to those being the only ones I added. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ichigo341578926 (talkcontribs) 21:34, 16 June 2016 (UTC)

Re: Excessive details in articles[edit]

You may want to read some relevant essays on the subject at WP:BECONCISE and WP:TOOMUCH as they cover a common issue on Wikipedia for editors to include detail on a subject that may not necessarily have to be included, and could be removed without hindering understanding. Oftentimes, saying less in a more concise way will better explain something to a reader.-- 03:47, 2 July 2016 (UTC)

@Juhachi: I disagree that the amount of information that I added was excessive. I believe that it is important for the reader to know when the series was licensed, just like they want to know when the first chapter or volume of a series was released. G S Palmer (talkcontribs) 01:58, 3 July 2016 (UTC)
Those two things are not the same. It is relevant when a serialization began because its pertinent to the series itself. When and where a license was announced is in no way pertinent to the license itself, so it is excessive, plain and simple.-- 02:17, 3 July 2016 (UTC)
You're free to weigh in at WT:ANIME#Re: Excessive detail in license announcements.-- 02:25, 3 July 2016 (UTC)
Thanks, I did. G S Palmer (talkcontribs) 02:28, 3 July 2016 (UTC)
@Juhachi: It's not irrelevant; it gives you an idea of the series' timeline. Consider The Irregular at Magic High School, which Yen Press announced the license to back in spring 2016, but didn't get around to publishing the first volume until this summer. G S Palmer (talkcontribs) 02:28, 3 July 2016 (UTC)

Closing[edit]

Hey. If you're at all interested in getting more involved in closing, let me know and I'd be happy to help you get started. There are plenty of backlogs on the project that require good closers, and it's one of the few solid "needs" for the mop that can help someone get through RfA and where you can also demonstrate your competence before you get to RfA, so people have more to base their votes on. I think you have solid chances at RfA as-is, but some experience closing may help you sail through it more easily. I also certainly wouldn't mind one more experienced editor closing WP:CFD discussions or other discussions. ~ Rob13Talk 20:04, 19 August 2016 (UTC)

@BU Rob13: thanks, I would appreciate that! I definitely could do with some more experience in closing. Sorry for the late reply - I saw your message yesterday, but I was in the middle of splitting an article, and decided to come back to it later... but I completely forgot. G S Palmer (talkcontribs) 19:00, 20 August 2016 (UTC)
Let me know what you think would be helpful. I've mentored people on closing in great detail (e.g. this, which is ongoing), which is certainly a possibility, or we could just close some discussions together if you prefer. I've specifically tried recruiting closers to CfD in the past because it's an area with a bad need for closers, but I'd be happy to help with general WP:ANRFC postings or other process closes if you prefer a different area. ~ Rob13Talk 19:15, 20 August 2016 (UTC)
I won't be able to start right away - it'll probably be a few days before I can start working on it. For starters, I'll probably just read through all the guidelines again, because I'm pretty sure I don't remember all of them. I might also read your mentoring page (if you don't object?). After that I might try my hand at closing a few, and you can give me tips and tell me/revert me if I screw up. Does that sound like a good start? G S Palmer (talkcontribs) 19:36, 20 August 2016 (UTC)
Sure! Whatever you find helpful. Face-smile.svg ~ Rob13Talk 20:07, 20 August 2016 (UTC)

Characters Section[edit]

Hi, Do you know where there are guidelines on character sections for manga/anime/animation, ie what should be in or out of that section. I'm concerned that some sections are containing too much plot/story information. eg. Hybrid x Heart Magias Academy Ataraxia, yours, Ozflashman (talk) 03:22, 31 August 2016 (UTC)

@Ozflashman: that is painfully long. Personally, I would whittle down the amount of information contained there to about one short paragraph each, but also add a short summary to each of the characters who don't have one. Relevant guidelines can be found at Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Anime- and manga-related articles#Characters (see especially bullet point 4) and Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Writing about fiction (especially the MOS:INUNIVERSE and MOS:PLOT sections). (Also, I took the liberty of fixing the link you provided.) G S Palmer (talkcontribs) 12:51, 31 August 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for your help, glad you agree about the length. I was sure there as a guideline but had trouble finding it. I'll think about whether it's worth the effort to fix it up, but it will be useful to quote the guideline on this or other articles that I may trim down. Yours Ozflashman (talk) 13:26, 31 August 2016 (UTC)
Completed rewriting the Characters section and removed the 'In Universe' template message , hope that's OK. Ozflashman (talk) 12:56, 21 September 2016 (UTC)
@Ozflashman: That looks much nicer and more concise. Good work! G S Palmer (talkcontribs) 14:49, 21 September 2016 (UTC)

WP:RFAP[edit]

Oh, a bit AGF on your GF revert but can you explain futher why is not useful? KGirlTrucker81 huh? what I'm been doing 01:56, 4 September 2016 (UTC)

@KGirlTrucker81: there are a few reasons: A) it's redundant to what is already implied in the warning. B) it's confusing. What is the "Even if" supposed to be modifying? The sentence before it that states, essentially, that asking when you're clearly not ready is just a waste of time? And C), it really breaks the flow of the warning. I won't be able to respond to your reply, because this is the last post I'm going to make tonight. G S Palmer (talkcontribs) 03:20, 4 September 2016 (UTC)


RFA[edit]

@BlackAmerican: I appreciate the offer, I really do. However, I don't feel that I'm ready for adminship at this point, and real life matters limit the amount I can edit Wikipedia, so I wouldn't have time to devote to an RFA. So I'm afraid I must decline. Thanks for your understanding, G S Palmer (talkcontribs) 22:14, 13 September 2016 (UTC)

How much time does an RFA require? Also, I have seen many semi active admins. All the best! BlackAmerican (talk) 22:19, 13 September 2016 (UTC)

@BlackAmerican: from what I've seen, it requires the candidate to be there, ready to answer questions, for the entire week. G S Palmer (talkcontribs) 03:46, 14 September 2016 (UTC)

Tappei Nagatsuki[edit]

I'm happy that you created an article about the author of Re:Zero, but do you think that Wikipedia is really ready for an article about him? Personally, I don't feel that he meets WP:AUTHOR yet - he comes closest to meeting point #3, but I don't think he quite meets it. Perhaps it would be best to redirect it to Re:Zero for now, like I did with Okayado and Monster Musume? G S Palmer (talkcontribs) 13:02, 25 September 2016 (UTC)

Yeah, I had doubts about it, but I risked. If you will redirect it to the article, I shalln't see a problem.--White DemΩn (el psy congroo) 13:14, 25 September 2016 (UTC)
@White Demon: okay,  Done. Sorry about that. Hopefully we'll need an article on him sometime in the future. G S Palmer (talkcontribs) 17:11, 25 September 2016 (UTC)

ORCP[edit]

Hi GS, I’ve just been having another look at your entry at WP:ORCP. It may well be time for you to take a serious decision now. Let me know what you think. Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 05:48, 17 October 2016 (UTC)

@Kudpung: if you're suggesting that I run for adminship, I'm busy IRL at the moment, but might have time around the middle of December (I can't guarantee any time before that). However, I wouldn't feel comfortable self-nominating, so if I were to run, I would need someone who would be willing to get the process going. G S Palmer (talkcontribs) 21:36, 17 October 2016 (UTC)
Self-noms are never a good idea. While quite a few do pass, there are some users who systematically oppose them. Let's talk about it more hen you are ready. Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 02:04, 18 October 2016 (UTC)
@Kudpung: alright, I'll drop you a message when things look like they might abate for a week or two. G S Palmer (talkcontribs) 02:21, 18 October 2016 (UTC)

New deal for page patrollers[edit]

Hi G S Palmer,

In order to better control the quality of new pages, keep out the spam, and welcome the genuine newbies, the current system we introduced in 2011 is being updated and improved. The documentation and tutorials have also been revised and given a facelift. Most importantly a new user group New Page Reviewer has been created.

Under the new rule, you may find that you are temporarily unable to mark new pages as reviewed. However, this is nothing to worry about - most current experienced patrollers are being accorded the the new right without the need to apply, and if you have significant previous experience of patrolling new pages, we strongly encourage you to apply for the new right as soon as possible - we need all the help we can get, and we are now providing a dynamic, supportive environment for your work.

Find out more about this exiting new user right now at New Page Reviewers and be sure to read the new tutorial before applying. MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 04:29, 13 November 2016 (UTC)

Copyright question[edit]

Hi GS, In this edit at List of Twin Star Exorcists episodes, I pulled out a ton of content because they were dumped without proper attribution by a sockpuppet of Sage of the Six Paths who was indeffed months ago for copyright violations. He apparently still doesn't know how to copy within Wikipedia while giving proper attribution since it looks like he may have yanked them out of the main Twin Star Exorcists article. Anyhow, I notice that some of the episode summaries may have been contributed by you. Can you verify which of the summaries you wrote from scratch? If you did, then they could be restored to the article with proper attribution to Twin Star Exorcists (per WP:CWW). Otherwise, they'll have to be omitted. Many of the summaries were identical to summaries found at Wikia, but in the case of this episode summary it looks like you submitted it several days before it appeared at Wikia. Any help you can provide here would be greatly appreciated. Thanks and sorry for the hassle. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 06:00, 31 December 2016 (UTC)

@Cyphoidbomb: I wrote the episode summaries for episodes 1-8 (see this revision) from scratch. I'll add them to the list right away (with proper attribution, of course). G S Palmer (talkcontribs) 20:33, 31 December 2016 (UTC)
Thank you, my friend. Appreciate you taking the lead on this. I'm swamped! Face-smile.svg Happy new year! Cyphoidbomb (talk) 20:35, 31 December 2016 (UTC)

About info table on Re:Zero's manga adaptation of the 2nd arc[edit]

The serialization has stopped. The adaptation ends at chapter 20 (aside from the extra chapter). You can check the Re:Zero wiki, the official twitter or Mangaka the twitter. You can also read the last chapter on batoto.

http://rezero.wikia.com/wiki/Dainishou_Manga_Volume_4

Hope that helps.

Iron maw (talk) 08:53, 24 March 2017 (UTC)

If you have a Tweet from the official Twitter account confirming serialization has ended, then you can use that as a source. Otherwise, the statement is OR. G S Palmer (talkcontribs) 12:49, 24 March 2017 (UTC)
Hey, I did some searching and I found that the manga artist mentioned on Twitter that the manga ended in the issue sold at the end of December, and the following month they mention it again when they talk about the mayonnaise chapter that was published in January (which Crunchyroll also did an article on). So it would appear that the mayonnaise chapter was the last serialized chapter on January 25.-- 20:08, 24 March 2017 (UTC)
