Greetings, thanks for blocking this troll account. Is there any way to trace the IP address? The below comment is from a clearly mentally deranged individual that could personally affect me. Thus I believe an IP check is warranted.

Hello, we met previously in the GA review for Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash. I come to you with a request for translating this title from a Japanese article: マリオ生誕20周年記念で『ファミコンミニスーパーマリオブラザーズ』の再販決定!.

possibility of moving a photo from Commons to enwiki?[edit]

Hi, I made a mistake on the copyrights of the images on Minerva Teichert. Since they were originally unpublished, their copyright doesn't expire until 150 years after the date of their creation (which isn't for another 2-4 years). I nominated the two photos from the body of the page for deletion on Commons. I think that the infobox image can be used under fair use. Should I nominate it for deletion on Commons and re-upload to enwiki, or is there a way to move it from Commons to enwiki? Rachel Helps (BYU) (talk) 16:25, 2 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Rachel Helps (BYU): There may be a tool to move from Commons to enwiki (I think there's a template for doing that). The fastest way, though, is to upload it here. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 16:58, 2 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Sorry[edit]

I'm a bit confused about your edit summary [4]. Would you mind expanding on what you were saying? Dawnseeker2000 21:16, 5 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Dawnseeker2000: You changed the date in a template from "November 2012" to "May 2022" and used the edit summary of "date formats per MOS:DATEFORMAT by script". Your edit made no sense as the date format was just fine and the template being used was {{Use dmy dates}}. There's no reason to change the date in that template as it should reflect when it was placed on the article. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 22:07, 5 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Please review template:use dmy dates for proper usage of the template and date format maintenance in general. In the future, please be certain of your understanding of a particular area of the encyclopedia before reverting. Dawnseeker2000 22:15, 5 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Dawnseeker2000: I know how to use dates in templates. All you did was change the date itself. You didn't change the format of the date, so your edit summary makes no sense at all. Changing the date from "November 2012" to "May 2022" has absolutely nothing to do with the date format. If I see you simply changing the date itself (not the format) and using the same basic edit summary, I'll revert you again as that's disruptive. Please stop being disruptive with false edit summaries. Using automated tools in a disruptive fashion is not acceptable. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 23:39, 5 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Jibreel23: They need to follow the instructions on their talk page. Also, they aren't banned; they are only indefinitely blocked. Banning means they can't ever edit on Wikipedia again.

@1997kB: Why are you telling me this? ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 16:56, 9 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Because you handle requests on WP:CHUS and their reason do not properly link back to request thus making it hard to check previous renames of users. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 15:28, 10 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Question about user perms on jaWiki[edit]

Hello! Not sure if you can answer this (I've asked on the relevant Wiki's help page for those who don't speak the language but haven't received an answer yet), but is there a place where I can request autoconfirmed and extended confirmed perms on jaWiki? I had attempted to revert an LTA using global Twinkle, only to be stopped by an edit filter. So I went to jaWiki's place to request perms but there wasn't a place to request autoconfirmed and extended confirmed there. I wouldn't be able to get those perms by normal means since I don't know Japanese at all. ― Blaze WolfTalkBlaze Wolf#6545 17:06, 16 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Blaze Wolf: I think that's the only way to get them, though autoconfirmed should be automatically assigned after so many edits (not sure of the number). ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 17:08, 16 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Hmm.. that's going to be a bit problematic for when I do have to make edits there (which won't be often). I know autoconfirmed will automatically get assigned after a certain number of edits, however there's still the issue of me not knowing any Japanese (or even how to type/write Japanese characters (kanji? I know there are different terms for them)) which would mean I would have to basically try and "game" autoconfirmed. ― Blaze WolfTalkBlaze Wolf#6545 17:13, 16 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Blaze Wolf: Do you have mover rights on Commons? If so, you could move a number of Japanese images needing to be renamed on Commons. See COMMONS:Category:Files of Japan with bad file names. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 17:16, 16 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

For the Japanese permissions request, maybe ping RottenApple777 on jawiki since they've helped you in the past. They may be able to get the attention of the appropriate people, if nothing else. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 17:47, 16 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Alright. But what exactly would moving incorrectly named Japanese files do for my situation? ― Blaze WolfTalkBlaze Wolf#6545 17:50, 16 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Blaze Wolf: When you move them, if they are used on the Japanese Wikipedia, the move tool automatically fixes the links used in jawiki articles. That gives you edits on the wiki without requiring you to know Japanese. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 17:52, 16 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

CHUS[edit]

Hi,

At WP:CHUS I usually give users a minimum of a week to respond to comments/questions. I've seen other renamers give two weeks. I'm hesitant to give users a realname and give them a need to come back for another renaming when they realise the consequences, a request which may get bounced as being frivolous or repeated.
I make no claims of WP:OWNership to any request. I just asked a question, which in this case I see as a courtesy to the user. If you want to jump in and act on the request, more power to you. It'll make the queue shorter which is never a bad thing. Face-smile.svg Cabayi (talk) 06:43, 25 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Cabayi: I would normally agree. In this case, since they were already using their real name in their username, and the request was simply to remove the part that wasn't their real name, I don't see a reason to wait. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 17:34, 27 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I can see your logic that it's discourteous to make someone wait.
My viewpoint is that the fact the user made a poor choice in the past should not deprive them of the chance to reconsider their request and to make a good choice now.
If the request is approved, the general interpretation of m:GRP#Policy's "frivolous, repeated" provision is that a user should wait 6 months before making a new request. If the request is declined they are free to re-request immediately with a new name, or an affirmation that they know what they're doing with regard to WP:REALNAME. To me, rejecting the request is the kinder option.
A side issue, the deleted history of this user's userpage suggests they are confusing usernames with article names. Cabayi (talk) 06:11, 28 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Help with Japanese film credit "進行主任"[edit]

Thank you for your helpful edits on Wikipedia:WikiProject Japan/Film credits glossary! I keep encountering the term "進行主任" when subtitling Toei films from the 1960s. I could only find this term here at https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/制作進行, which links to the English-language article for "production assistant". Should this term really just be translated as "Production Assistant" in movie credits or is there a better way to translate this? It seems like the job must be far more important than what a "production assistant" is in English because there is only one listed and it includes the term "主任" ("chief"). The Japanese article seems to give some sort of explanation: "実写映画では、進行主任などとも呼ばれるが、プロダクション·マネージャーではなく、アシスタントの一種である。" I interpreted this to mean "In live-action films it is called a progress manager, though it is a kind of assistant, not a production manager." What do you think? Do you think that the term "進行主任" should be translated simply as "Production Assistant" or more grandiosely as "Progress Manager" or something else? This seems like an important term that should be added to the film credits glossary because it has appeared in every film I've watched lately but it doesn't appear in any dictionaries. I'm looking for the translation within the context of live-action films, by the way. Nicholas0 (talk) 02:41, 27 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Perhaps "assistant production manager"? ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 16:18, 27 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
