Nice work with on the I album page! :) Hope the album's good. I'm still listening to Newtral and their older ones.

Bumped up[edit]

Hi, I also saw and thought of Kitsune and Tengu, but then I decided to bump them up to High-importance, considering how much each of them appear in old folktales, masks, festivals and whatnot. Thought I'd give a heads-up. All of this must seem pretty arbitrary, so you could open a discussion on their respective talk pages if you think I'm in error (no hard feelings!). It's unfortunate that so many of the other FA/GA articles seem to be only tangentially related to Japan, or they're about video games, anime, or pro wrestlers, which to be honest, is not what I'd prefer to put on a project page. Boneyard90 (talk) 21:34, 10 September 2013 (UTC)

Thank for the heads up - I'm sorry to say that I have left a message on the Talk:Kitsune page because I need a little more convincing. I completely agree with the issue with the FA/GA mid articles and found it difficult to select examples which would be relatively well known - I definitely believe that those mentioned above and also battleships are not suitable for a project page. I have added another suggestion to the WP talk page having seen your Toilets in Japan suggestion - I can't see any harm in putting two examples either since, as you say, it could be considered arbitrary JTST4RS (talk) 10:39, 11 September 2013 (UTC)
I just bumped up Pachinko to High-importance. I also put my reasons at Talk:Pachinko#Importance evaluation. I hope this isn't driving you crazy, I assure you I'm not going to bump up everything to high importance, haha... Boneyard90 (talk) 13:22, 11 September 2013 (UTC)
That's fine, it's given me a better idea of what to aim for now. To be honest my suggestions of pachinko and izakaya were largely based on the "some impact outside of Japan" criteria, the articles are definitely high if that criteria is ignored. I have already voiced my concern regarding that matter on the kitsune talk page - I hope it's not turning into too much trouble - I feel I have opened a Pandora's box now that I've started to question the assessment criteria! JTST4RS (talk) 14:03, 11 September 2013 (UTC)
Nah, it's fine, the subject gets brought up from time to time, and it needs to be. I feel like sometimes "importance" is either equated with "popularity" (thus, Pachinko was rated "Low" at first), or it gets equated with "familiarity", which means the very familiar gets a high/top rating (like Sudoku once), or the un-familiar gets a low rating, like figures in ancient history. It's good to get dialogue going. Boneyard90 (talk) 16:09, 11 September 2013 (UTC)

Tokyo Metropolis merge proposal[edit]

Hi. I left a comment at Talk:Tokyo about the proposal to merge Tokyo Metropolis and Tokyo. My feeling is that it would be better to convert Tokyo Metropolis into a redirect to Tokyo, since that is where most of the information is. But that means we would have to move the current Tokyo Metropolis to a new name. I was wondering if you had any reaction to that. Also whether you have had any contact with other people about the merge proposal. I'm not a member of the Japan forum, as it seems kind of inactive. Thanks. --Margin1522 (talk) 05:26, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for your response, I apologise for my time taken in replying; I have left a reply on the Tokyo Talk Page. I have not had any contact regarding the merger proposal other than that on the Tokyo Talk Page itself, I admittedly do not know where to turn to in order to gain additional contact. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks for your time, JTST4RS (talk) 12:54, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
OK, I thought your idea was great. Let's continue this on the Tokyo Talk Page. --Margin1522 (talk) 18:08, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

Renaming of Japanese articles[edit]

Hello there, thank you for your message. The manual of style you mention states in the beginning "When disambiguation is required". Proper use of disambiguation WP:D states the uses of place names after a comma should only be applied if there is a serious chance of mistaking one place with another. In many cases there are not even disambiguation pages which exist. WP:EN also states to use the most commonly used name, to which the manual of style has to comply with of course. Thank you.

Ichikawa Station[edit]

Konichiwa! Can you improve and source this one?♦ Dr. Blofeld 18:14, 24 January 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up, I've improved/referenced what I can by taking a look at the ja article - unfortunately that's rather sparsely sourced as well. I've checked the remaining information against the external link provided and it is correct. JTST4RS (talk) 18:54, 24 January 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Asian 10,000 Challenge invite[edit]

Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Asia/The 10,000 Challenge has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge and Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The 10,000 Challenge. The idea is not to record every minor edit, but to create a momentum to motivate editors to produce good content improvements and creations and inspire people to work on more countries than they might otherwise work on. There's also the possibility of establishing smaller country or regional challenges for places like South East Asia, Japan/China or India etc, much like Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). For this to really work we need diversity and exciting content and editors from a broad range of countries regularly contributing. At some stage we hope to run some contests to benefit Asian content, a destubathon perhaps, aimed at reducing the stub count would be a good place to start, based on the current Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon which has produced near 200 articles in just three days. If you would like to see this happening for Asia, and see potential in this attracting more interest and editors for the country/countries you work on please sign up and being contributing to the challenge! This is a way we can target every country of Asia, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia. We need numbers to make this work so consider signing up as a participant! Thank you. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 04:53, 20 October 2016 (UTC)
