Little Tokyo, Los Angeles, CA[edit]

I think that you've gone a little overboard in your description of the Kinokuniya bookstore in the Little Tokyo, Los Angeles, California article, especially since it is already the only commercial establishment mentioned by name. BlankVerse 12:33, 30 August 2005 (UTC)

  • Actually I didn't. Someone laid out a description that was very misleading. She wrote only the few itsems she prefered to buy that were offered at the store, so I filled in the broarder spectrum. We should either leave it detailed or remove it all together, which is fine by me as Kinokuniya has it's owh wiki page anyway. Natsuki 16:36, 30 August 2005 (UTC)
    • Probably the best thing is to pare it back to:
      They have a large selection of Japanese-language books, magazines, music CDs, manga and anime. They also have a selection of English-language books on Japanese subjects, and translated manga and anime.
    • How does that look? The other choice, like you've said, is to delete the description completely. I'm a partial to the store since it one of the places that I always visit when I go to Little Tokyo, but the description is really not necessary to the article. BlankVerse 16:59, 30 August 2005 (UTC)
      • Yea, that's better. I'm partial as well, my loft is about 15-min by foot from Weller, actually, and I go to that particular branch on a weekly basis. The original description looked a bit biased toward what that person prefered... not a propor reflection of what the store offers. Your new short version is best. Natsuki 19:00, 30 August 2005 (UTC)
        • I spend enough money there only going every 2-3 months (from the Long Beach area). I'd go broke if I went there every week.
        • Since you're in the LA area, you might be interested in the Southern California WikiProject. There's also been one LA meetup that happened very close to you (at Phillippe's) and there's info on future meetups at WP:MULA. BlankVerse 15:39, 31 August 2005 (UTC)
          • Hahaha, well, I mostly walk there and back as my weekly "fresh air" (if we can even call it that 'gags on stanky L.A. air'). Also, I do all my food shopping at Marukai and Mitsuwa, we go out for ramen a lot, and they stagger the new magazines I like to get at Kino, which works out to my having/wanting to go on over there every week. Natsuki 17:49, 31 August 2005 (UTC)

Testing[edit]

A suggestion: If you want to test things without using your User page, you can create a subpage under your user name. Although many users name their test page a sandbox, you can use any name that you want. Here is a link for a sandbox page for you: User:NatsukiGirl/Sandbox. You can also have multiple subpages, so some users use them for creating notes to themselves, to work on articles before they edit them, to work on new articles, etc.

For your signature: I was going to mention the problems that I saw in your test signature, but it looks like you are figuring it out. BlankVerse 17:00, 2 September 2005 (UTC)

Hahaha, thanks... actually, I can't figure it. I was trying to code it like like so NatsukiGirl\talk however, even in raw format it sems to only want to accept the talk link... and not the main link. I switched back to normal to give up, and now it won't link anything at all. NatsukiGirl 17:03, 2 September 2005 (UTC)
Ack... I that's weird... now the talk isn't a link even though I did it by hand there.... O_o wtf NatsukiGirl

You have to remember that a link that goes to the page that the link is on becomes bolded, but not a link. For example: User talk:NatsukiGirl. It looked like you actually had it right, but it didn't look right because you were using the signature on your User and Talk pages. That's another reason you should test something like your signature on a Sandbox page. BlankVerse 17:11, 2 September 2005 (UTC)

Hahaha, now I feel like a dumb ass... I should have noticed this... Thank you! ^^;;
Weeeee -- NatsukiGirl\talk 20:00, 2 September 2005 (UTC)
Sure! I'll be proud to be listed as a NatsukiFriend. ;-) BlankVerse 07:35, 3 September 2005 (UTC)

Welcoming other editors to the Wikipedia[edit]

One thing that you'll find as you participate in the Wikipedia is that the Wikipedia has a number of unwritten traditions, such as always bottom-posting your messages and replies on Talk pages. Another tradition is that welcome messages are placed on a user's Talk page and not on their User page. That means that a couple of the new editors that you have welcomed recently on their User page have also recieved welcomes on their Talk page from other editors. I looked at the page for the Wikipedia:Welcoming committee, but even that page said nothing about this tradition.

To make it easier, you can use the {{welcome}} template and then add your signature. Many of the regular members of the Welcoming committee have created their own custom welcome messages that they keep on a user subpage and then copy or transclude to the Talk page when they welcome a new editor. BlankVerse 11:55, 3 September 2005 (UTC)

Vaginal flatulence[edit]

Your edits to Vaginal flatulence are appreciated, but do try to assume not only good faith on the part of your fellow editors, but that there might be some research applied. Your edit summary was:

wrote better description of causes... men should probably not try to GUESS when it comes to a woman's vagina

As it turns out, the text you were refering to was written by me (a man), but was based on the advice of a woman (a doctor, as it happens) who runs a medical advice column. I wish I could have used her exact words, but of course, that would be a copyright infringement.

It think that ultimately, though you were a bit more wordy about it, the two are roughly the same mechanic from different points of view (one describing the moving of air, one describing the change in structure that causes air to move in the first place).

Again, thanks for your work on Wikipedia, and happy editing! -Harmil 22:52, 9 September 2005 (UTC)

I think I get it... in which case, the way you wrote it makes it sound as if the vagina is changing shape on it's own, when in reality it's not "expanding and contracting" as if controlled by involuntary force... but rather, to produce the SOUND of a vag-fart you have to either displace air using an object or actively squeeze the muscles to contract, otherwise the air would simply seep out without making a sound, and thus wouldn't be a vag-fart.
The vagina "getting smaller" doesn't cause the sound... the vagina relaxes back to a smaller size slowly... some kind of extra force is required to create the "fart" noise. -- NatsukiGirl\talk 23:25, 9 September 2005 (UTC)

Maison Ikkoku[edit]

No, it is not a comedy. It is at best a comedic romance (there is a big difference). The focus of Maison Ikkoku is never on the comedic aspect of the show (nor in the manga). It is on the developing relationship between Kyoko and Godai. Ranma 1/2 was a romantic comedy, while Maison Ikkoku is a comedic romance, and later in the series, tends more towards dramatic romance than comedy. I will admit that Takahashi probably planned it to be a comedy at the start of the series, but it is very evident that as the story evolved, keeping it as a comedy would not work, and the shift was made to focus on the romance/drama of the series. -Js2756 21:28, 22 September 2005 (UTC)

You're grabbing at straws now. It IS a romantic comedy, hands down... trying to call it a comedic romance is like trying to say something isn't violet, it's purple. Calling it a romance will cause people to think it's a drama, or sappy... and it's really not, it's a romantic comedy. Unless you can come up with a better reason than "I said so" it's going to remain "romantic comedy" on the wikipage... and I will file a dispute if I have to. Wiki is supposed to be NPOV... and I aim to keep it that way. -- NatsukiGirl\talk 21:47, 22 September 2005 (UTC)
Humm... ok, I'll buy the new wording. But please don't mislead people anywhere else. Originally you took out the comedic all together, and that's what I had an issue with. -- NatsukiGirl\talk 21:48, 22 September 2005 (UTC)
It may be a case of semantics, but it is still significant. Classifying Maison Ikkoku as a comedy signifies that the primary purpose of the show is to make the viewer/reader laugh. This is not the case, especially near the end of the series, where the series is by far much more focused on drama, and yes, some sappy romance. The primary purpose is to tell about Kyoko's and Godai's relationship. There are comedic elements throughout the show, but never is the focus purely to make the viewer laugh (except in those stupid fillers). The boxset even states, "It is a story that takes place in Japan. It is a story about love. It is a story about life." This seems to place a lot more emphasis on the romance than the comedy of the show. In the same vein, Fullmetal Alchemist and Inuyasha should not be listed as comedies. They have comedic elements, but their primary classification is as fantasy adventure series. -Js2756 11:34, 23 September 2005 (UTC)

What?[edit]

You're watching my story unfold? You're waiting for my stuff to get deleted, well thanks. Uhh why? The Fascist Chicken 22:33, 22 September 2005 (UTC)

Well it lasted 30 minutes or so, there that's something special. The Fascist Chicken 23:04, 22 September 2005 (UTC)

I was joking... I'm the one who put the delete tag on your page. I thought it was amusing watching you try to finish an article that's going to be deleted. -- NatsukiGirl\talk 23:18, 22 September 2005 (UTC)

Jerry Mahoney[edit]

Hey, give me a chance, I'm still in the process of creating and researching this article. If you'd checked, it's linked from Bruce-Mahoney Trophy. Please don't kill it yet. IceKarma 02:38, 23 September 2005 (UTC)

Oh, ok. I'll remove the tag. I'm not an admin so I can't delete it... not would I, the tag is just so people can check it faster. -- NatsukiGirl\talk 02:40, 23 September 2005 (UTC)

Hi[edit]

Hi

You welcomed me before I'd even made an edit. That's quick! James James 02:55, 23 September 2005 (UTC)

I was sitting on Recent Changes welcoming people. :) -- NatsukiGirl\talk 05:40, 23 September 2005 (UTC)

Your question on Memento[edit]

The details of how/when to disambiguate are listed on Wikipedia:Disambiguation; if you want a proper disambiguation page, first you'll have to move the page to a new name, then make the disambiguation. But disambiguation pages are usually only used for things with at least three articles to disambiguate between... If there are only two pages, the more common solution is to have one of them come up as the "main" page, with a link at the top along the lines of This is a page about momentos. For the movie of the same name, see Momento (movie). See Clock tower for an example. Aquillion 03:46, 23 September 2005 (UTC)

Yea, there should be a disambig... there's the dictionary definition of 'memento', the movie, the phrase 'memento mori', and there's also a few songs also titled 'memento' or 'memento mori.' Thank you for instructions on how to do it. :) -- NatsukiGirl\talk 05:38, 23 September 2005 (UTC)

Ack! You need to move pages using the 'move' tab (next to 'history'); see Wikipedia:Move. The problem with copying-and-pasting the way you did is that it doesn't preserve the history, making it impossible to see who added what; you should revert Memento and use the move tab to move it instead, then create the new page in its place.

Additionally, you created your cut-and-paste page at Momento (movie), probably because I misspelled it in the link above. That's why your link to it went to a redirect... there was a seperate, older redirect called Memento (movie) that you linked to from your disambiguation which just redirected to Memento.

Unfortunately, that old redirect at Memento (movie) will prevent you from moving Memento there, since you can't move a page over an existing page; so you'll need to ask an administrator to delete the redirect first.

For now, I'll revert the page Memento and redirect my mispelling Momento (movie) there; Memento needs to be moved to Memento (movie) via the move-tab to preserve its history. Then you can create the disambiguation page in its place. Aquillion 06:31, 23 September 2005 (UTC)

Haha... I'm so sorry dragging you into this... maybe I should have left it alone. I went to sleep after I tried to fix the link... so that's why I didn't revert it myself. Thanks for all your help. -- NatsukiGirl\talk 16:36, 23 September 2005 (UTC)

Welcome messages[edit]

Hello! Always remember to use "subst:" when leaving the "Welcome" template: {{subst:welcome}}. --Mel Etitis (Μελ Ετητης) 09:53, 23 September 2005 (UTC)

Why is that? I'm going to go sandbox it now and look... but... why exactly is the reason we should do that? Just wondering. -- NatsukiGirl\talk 16:32, 23 September 2005 (UTC)

Partly it's because it allows the new user to delete part of it but keep just the links she finds useful (or to re-format the links). Also, if it isn't used, then every time the page is opened it has to retrieve the template text; it's much more efficient to use "subst", which places the text on the page once and for all. See Help:Subst (and Wikipedia:Template messages/User talk namespace). --Mel Etitis (Μελ Ετητης) 17:22, 23 September 2005 (UTC)

this is NatsukiGirl aka 69.231.245.82[edit]

There are at least two possible explanations. One is that your internet browser is set (or has been changed) to reject the internet cookies from the http://en.wikipedia.org servers (or set to reject all internet cookies). If you will tell me which browser that you are using, I can probably tell you how to check your settings (as long as it's a WinDoze browser or has a WinDoze version).

Another possibility is that the m:developers has made a change to the MediaWiki software that has temporarily made things all wonky. That happened to me a couple of months ago where, for about three hours, a sign-in lasted about 5 minutes before I would be logged out (the normal setting seems to be if you don't do anything in 30-40 minutes you get logged out, which means that if you are doing several things at the same time, like also reading your email, you might get logged out).

If you think it is a software bug, you can check the Wikipedia's bugzilla report site, or Wikipedia:MediaWiki 1.5 bugs.

Also: Emptying your internet browser's cache can sometimes miraculously clear up problems on the Wikipedia. BlankVerse 19:44, 23 September 2005 (UTC)

Welcoming IP address[edit]

Forgive me, but I noticed your message on Drini's talk page. I thought I would make you aware of a welcome template for IP users: {{Anon}}. This tells the user about Wikipedia and encourages them to register an account. Also, sometimes IP users will ask questions or talk to you on your talk page. I hope this helps! Psy guy (talk) 20:10, 25 September 2005 (UTC)

That will come in handy! Thank you for showing me! :) -- NatsukiGirl\talk 20:23, 25 September 2005 (UTC)
You can also use the welcomeip template, which is similar to the welcome template, but you have to pipe your User name (e.g. {{welcomeip|BlankVerse}}). BlankVerse 05:42, 26 September 2005 (UTC)

But remember to use "subst" again. --Mel Etitis (Μελ Ετητης) 18:02, 26 September 2005 (UTC)

yea, I gathered that (points to User:NatsukiGirl/Playroom I already tested subst:Anon there, see?). ;) -- NatsukiGirl\talk 20:27, 26 September 2005 (UTC)
I couldn't resist visiting User:NatsukiGirl/Playroom, but it wasn't as exciting as I'd hoped. Still, glad to see that my caveat was unneeded. --Mel Etitis (Μελ Ετητης) 11:19, 27 September 2005 (UTC)
hahaha, sorry it wasn't exciting... I just wanted to use a word other than 'Sandbox'... "always the rebel" or something. Hehe. -- NatsukiGirl\talk 16:10, 27 September 2005 (UTC)

Message from User:Dugan[edit]

this was originally added to the "Little Tokyo, Los Angeles, CA" section. BlankVerse 05:42, 26 September 2005 (UTC)

Natsuki, is there any possibility for getting a font option on the edit page? I am comfortable in typing 14 point Dugan Dugan 19:15, 25 September 2005 (UTC)

SmackBot[edit]

Thanks for your thanks. SmackBot did unlink May, it also made other fixes to links, which is why it puts "&/or general fixes" in the edit summary. The "or" is because someone else may have fixed the "main" problem by the time SmackBot gets there (although with this particular run, I was able to check that hadn't happened). Rich Farmbrough 10:08 28 March 2006 (UTC).

Happy Birthday[edit]

Congratulations! SalvadorRodriguez 19:03, 10 April 2006 (UTC)

Atheist and Intelligence groupings on userpage[edit]

ok dotn get ticked atme for doiong this but i didnt know how else to send you a message... how did you get those atheist and intelligent things on your profile and the godlike english thing? were those actual test results or just a cutsey thing you did yourself? cause id liek to take the tests also. Thank you Levito

I made the yellow atheist and pink intelligence ones, the godlike ones is an actual grouping though, so go to the edit page to see the coding for them, feel free to use and change them when you put them on your own userpage. You can test them out by creating a subpage to your userpage, by the way. Good luck! :) -- NatsukiGirl\talk 21:54, 30 June 2006 (UTC)

Babel Userbox[edit]

What is the "code" for the babel userbox "This user speaks english at a godlike level"? Much Appreciated. -- Lego@lost EVIL, EVIL! | 06:25, 7 September 2006 (UTC)

you can go to my user page, click edit page, and look at the code. -- NatsukiGirl\talk


The Bot[edit]

Again, answering for Hagerman here, just trying to be helpful. But, as far as I know, the way the bot was initially constructed (and it seems to be the most logical to me) was to automatically watch all Wikipedia users. That way, people who don't sign (and there are a lot of them) and who also would probably not sign up for a bot that always signed for them, still are able to be held accountable to the other users in the conversation. So, it watches everybody. But like I said, it takes about four seconds to opt out, which I did, since I always sign and the bot can cause edit conflicts and such. I agree with you that the bot's message can seem a little unnecessary if you are a responsible user who was just about to go back and sign. Overall though, the pros outweigh the cons, in my opinion. Cheers, --Tractorkingsfan 21:34, 9 February 2007 (UTC)

Shugo Chara[edit]

I created the first Shugo Chara article until someone deleted it, then yours was created. So it's revese. I createc the first one but someone identified it as 'Spam', although it wasn't. I am not foolish. The version of the new Shugo Chara article is mine to-date, just check it's history page. If you want the redirect on your Shugo Chara article gone, please say so. no need to fuss. I do not want to sound mean, I'm sorry! —Preceding unsigned comment added by Sir aaron sama girl (talkcontribs) 00:03, 18 September 2007 (UTC)

As I said on your talk page and on the shugo chara discussion page, the evidence is available in the histories, and there's simply no arguing at this point. You are probably too immature for wikipedia if you find your actions in any way acceptable. -- NatsukiGirl\talk 20:28, 15 October 2007 (UTC)

Oh, it's on youtube, just search for Shugo chara sub or something. It's in Japanese with subtitles. CrowstarCrow callsTalon Marks 23:00, 19 October 2007 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Wikipedia Loves Art[edit]

First off, I apologize for the spam. You are receiving this message because you have indicated that you are in Southern California or interested in Southern California topics (either via category or WikiProject, or I happen to know personally).

I would like to invite you to the Los Angeles edition of Wikipedia:Wikipedia Loves Art, a photography scavenger hunt to be held at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) on Saturday, February 28, 2009, from 1:00 to 7:00 PM. All photos are intended for use in Wikipedia articles or on Wikimedia Commons. There will be a prize available for the person who gets the most photos on the list.

If you don't like art, why not come just to meet your fellow Wikipedians. Apparently, we haven't had a meetup in this area since June 2006!

If you are interested in attending, please add your name to Wikipedia:Wikipedia Loves Art#Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Please make a note if you are traveling to the area (train or plane) and need transportation, which can probably be arranged via carpool, but we need time to coordinate. Lodging is as of right now out of scope, but we could discuss that if enough people are interested.

Thank you and I hope to see you there! howcheng {chat} 00:44, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference[edit]

Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have (or very recently had) enabled.

On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and you will still be able to manually mark your edits as being 'minor'. The only thing that's changed is that you will no longer have them marked as minor by default.

For established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. If you are familiar with the contents of WP:MINOR, and believe that it is still beneficial to the encyclopedia to have all your edits marked as such by default, then this discussion will give you the details you need to continue with this functionality indefinitely. If you have any problems, feel free to drop me a note.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 18:13, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Shaka Labbits[edit]

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

A tag has been placed on Shaka Labbits requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article, which appears to be about a real person, individual animal(s), an organization (band, club, company, etc.), or web content, does not indicate how or why the subject of the article is important or significant: that is, why an article about it should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you can assert the notability of the subject, Speedy delete contest button.png. Clicking that button will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the article's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself. You may freely add information to the article that would confirm the subject's notability under Wikipedia guidelines.

See the guidelines for specific types of articles: biographies, websites, bands, or companies. Jerzyt 06:29, 9 September 2011 (UTC)

Resurrection of Southern California Task Force[edit]

After moving from Los Angeles County to Kern County to San Luis Obispo County, I am finally realizing that there is life in California outside of L.A. and San Francisco, where I lived and grew up. Oh, I have also lived in San Diego, San Bernardino, San Joaquin, Yolo and Sacramento counties, and I earned my undergraduate degree in Riverside County. I am trying to breathe life into the Southern California Task Force, and I hope you will join me. Could you visit our list of participants at the other end of this link and update your description of what you are interested in doing for us, assuming that you still want to be in the mix, that is.

In recompense, I will buy you a drink during the Wikipedia Week I am planning for Morro Bay on the Central Coast in July. Yours sincerely, BeenAroundAWhile (talk) 18:17, 3 May 2015 (UTC)
