I, IP[edit]

Hi. Just letting you know that I was a bit puzzled by the revert (a word -on either TP- would have been nice, too) on U: Should your edit summary be true, this Category is in great danger. Anyhow,I had therefore compliantly erased all links from my IP pages to my registered account pages (and that includes the page of the JP Task force).

But then, although you had kindly invited me to join the JP task force on the IP's TP (it's still there; I was glad, I felt invited), after I joined, you removed me, stating IPs couldn't join (which, by the way, is not so nice, if it's a WKP rule (or not)). It's your task force, so you can do pretty much what pleases you there, but why invite people and then exclude them?

Just letting you know that because I don't feel welcome & when I don't feel welcome, I leave.--Ian K.W. 19:35, 4 August 2016 (UTC)

@I Know AA: I apologize for any confusion. As IPs are most commonly dynamic (meaning they could change at any given time), editors editing from IP addresses only can not generally join a WikiProject in a formal manner. Since you have a username now, you are welcome to join the project under the username. The reason the message is on the IP page is because that's where the talk page link went to. I recommend using only your named account and not doing anything from the IP in the future. It makes things much easier to sort out, and you won't run into this confusion in the future. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 20:55, 4 August 2016 (UTC)

line up of intro[edit]

Hi there, you have changed the intro of some of the Japanese articles with the argument "The English won't always line up directly with the Japanese, this is what it is called in English." The point of the introduction is to be as correct as possible, not necessarily reflect 1:1 what the name of the article is. You can see these as an example Prime Minister of Spain, Prince Harry, President of the United States, President of Russia, Prime Minister of Russia, etc. Thank you. Gryffindor (talk) 21:48, 4 August 2016 (UTC)

@Gryffindor: Hi there. The title of the article should be in the first line of the article. If it isn't, then the title of the article should be changed. The title of the article should be what the topic is called in English, and the first line should mirror that. If further explanation of what it may be called in the source language is needed, then that can be included in the first paragraph (perhaps even in the first line). Again, if the title and first line of the article don't line up to what the person is really called in English, then the title of the article should be changed (or the first line should be changed). ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 22:03, 4 August 2016 (UTC)
@Gryffindor: Also, you are edit warring on Emperor of Japan and Imperial House of Japan. You made an edit, it was reverted, so you should be going to the talk page of the article to gain consensus on what should be done. You're an admin, so you should know better than to edit war. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 22:05, 4 August 2016 (UTC)
  • I think British Royal Family is a better point of comparison than any of those articles listed above; each of which does have an official title. The British Royal Family, like the Japanese Imperial House, does not have an official name; and while it is known throughout the Commonwealth as simply the "Royal Family", we do not include that alone in the lead sentence. The "Royal Family" is known worldwide as the "British Royal Family", and similarly, the "天皇" is known as the "Emperor of Japan". The correct title for the Emperor of Japan is "天皇", not Emporer alone, and for the Japanese Imperial House is "皇室", not "Imperial House" alone; so matters of correctness of English terms are already strained. I am not however, sold on MOS as a reason for including the article title verbatim, and conceive we might find compromise. I concur on the edit warring - Stop it. - Ryk72 'c.s.n.s.' 06:00, 5 August 2016 (UTC)
Nihonjoe, I respect your point of view, but please refrain from public accusations of WP:EW when the 3RR has not been broken and assume WP:GF. An edit war can look very different to how we are discussing at the moment, and I would like to continue to keep it civil and constructive. However if it came across to you that way, I will refrain from further reverts to accomodate your wish even if I don't agree with it. Gryffindor (talk) 23:22, 5 August 2016 (UTC)
@Gryffindor: To quote WP:EW (end of the second paragraph): "The three-revert rule is a convenient limit for occasions when an edit war is happening fairly quickly, but it is not a definition of "edit warring", and it is perfectly possible to edit war without breaking the three-revert rule, or even coming close to doing so." Yes, you need to stop reverting. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 23:31, 5 August 2016 (UTC)



The backlog over there is as bad as I've ever seen it. I know this isn’t how I’m supposed to do this but the template has had no effect, nobody’s posted to AN in ten hours so I don’t know if anybody’s paying attention there, and while User:Acalamari just worked on it a bit, they can't stay.

You named your original account, User:AmPizzle, after someone else.

Hi, I was looking at the old article alerts and noticed you PRODed Mikage last week and later replaced it with a disambiguation page. I am curious what the old version of the article said, as Mikage is more than just a couple of train stations but a rather posh area of Higashinada-ku, Kobe. Is it possible to see the deleted contents? Thanks, AtHomeIn神戸 (talk) 00:22, 18 August 2016 (UTC)

What edit war?[edit]

As someone who used to spend man-months arbitrating edit wars I resent your accusation that a mere PAIR of reverts constitutes an edit war. You clearly have no concept of how bad things can get. For example, consider the very cordial relations over the Tsushima Strait and various related articles between your countrymen and those of Korea. Hmmmmm.

But since you feel this Train Station article was a edit war, then Please properly hang the {{globalize}} tag I was just blocked from adding. You kids really need to grow up and get a balanced perspective. I've been editing here since 2004 and STILL have less than 20 reverts, so you are definitely ridiculous with this accusation. // FrankB 03:35, 18 August 2016 (UTC)

@Fabartus: I'm sorry you feel resentful. And I'm sorry you think you know anything about where I'm from, who my countrymen are, or how familiar I am with "how bad things can get". Considering I've been an admin for over 10 years, I think I have a far better idea than you about things like that. I'm also well aware of the idiocy manifested on any article involving Japan and Korea, and I have blocked many people over it. Keep in mind that an edit war can be less than 3 edits. It is strongly recommended that if someone reverts an edit you make that you immediately take the discussion to the talk page of the article. You did not do that. I recommend participating in the discussion started by the other editor involved on Talk:Train station. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 04:58, 18 August 2016 (UTC)
Sorry if I misinterpreted your signature as suggesting you were Niponese. Might want to fix the cause. If you've been an admin for 10 years, you're probably overdue to take some time away.
My policy is that any one that reverts without first discussing some objection is totally disrespecting one's time and is about as respectable as worm dung. So any upset I feel is for an A-hole just blithely discarding hours of careful work. I find such action contemptable. I reversed that unforgivable action, and stopped. Nuff said for an edit war. I didn't re-revert. These sort pissy actions aren't worth any more of my time. I'll likely take corrective action over the content as he suggested, but terminus will first need many retargeting edits (which hijacked 'topic' in English lead me to that article). Obviously, 'terminus' and 'terminal stations' are related, but as my edit, and indeed just the language dictate, there is no requirement trains, rails, or depot buildings be anywhere involved. YOU, otoh seem to be in violation of WP:3RR in this case. He and I are both long standing editors, presumably in good repute. No one made multiple undo edits on the article. So I have to suspect you are a friend to him, and confidant. Otherwise, why jump the gun like this? Thanks for doing your job and adding that template. I hate those danged things near as much as I hate reverters, but that article needs de-anglicized! // FrankB 05:45, 18 August 2016 (UTC)
Not sure why you are so angry all the time. Looking through your interactions with people, you often seem to assume the worst and attack people without any valid reasons. You assume I know the other editor involved, for example. Until this incident, I had never interacted with him/her (or you, for that matter). Since I didn't do anything other than protect the article to stop your edit warring (which, again, doesn't need to involve 3RR to be considered edit warring), I don't know what logic you're using to accuse me of 3RR. I agree that the article needs some work, but there is not time limit on Wikipedia, so if someone reverts your edits, instead of reverting them back to what you wanted, go to the talk page immediately and start a discussion. You claim to "hate reverters", yet you are just as guilty of that as this other editor. If you stop thinking of other editors as "contemptible", "A-holes", and "worm dung", you might be able to better work with other editors. Assume good faith and all that. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 16:10, 18 August 2016 (UTC)
Sorry dude, but My AGF goes out the door when the other guy doesn't bother with the talk page option, electing first to trash my work. Reverting is a hostile action, particularly when someone clearly worked hard enough to add (in this case, I'm surprised at quite so many! Double my wordcount guess--but I do try to maintain others work and tone, that pads the results) related content. So I'm happy to be congenial, when people don't try to push me around. // FrankB 19:58, 18 August 2016 (UTC)
Well, with that attitude, you're going to continue to butt heads with other editors. Going in with guns blazing is not a way to get people to cooperate or work well with you. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 20:07, 18 August 2016 (UTC)

Episode Dates[edit]

Hi, Can you explain why you changed the episode dates for Sabu to Ichi Torimono Hikae. The style guide for Months & Years allows both systems, and I prefer DD MMM YYYY. Yours, Ozflashman (talk) 11:44, 25 August 2016 (UTC)

@Ozflashman: As I explained in my edit summary, the "MMM DD, YYYY" format was the established format for that page. Just like with English variations, once a particular format is established for a page, it should be consistent throughout the page. I should note that I prefer the "DD MMM YYYY" format, too. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 16:09, 25 August 2016 (UTC)

August 2016[edit]

I understand why you raised concerns about my revision. I know I should have adequately explained my reason for (again) removing the content. My edits were inexplicably reverted and I was correcting this.

I removed an assorted jumble of mundane details and rankings that have no place in the lead. The present state of the lead (as I have left it) merely reflects the long-standing version. Before I removed those couple of sentences, there had been a gradual creep of tiny details being inserted on the end of that last paragraph, to the extent that it became confusing and unclear. An example of this incoherence: we noted that Japan ranked highly for life expectancy and low for infant morality, then we noted that Japan had the highest number of poet laurettes in Asia. What is the connection here? In the whole there were numerous details that had been added by eager editors that were entirely conspicuous with that paragraph as a whole. This is completely unacceptable for a Featured Article.

Please observe that nothing I removed from that last paragraph cannot be found elsewhere in the article. I am not removing anything of importance from the article. Where appropriate I moved the rankings to the 'economic history' subsection. Other facts, e.g. the highest number of poet laureates can be found in the article. --Hazhk (talk) 16:47, 25 August 2016 (UTC)

Please see this version of the lead from December 2015. I think this was an acceptable revision. No unnecessary details. I did however chose to move the last two rankings elsewhere; I think they are superfluous to the introductory section. I will concede on this point so long as the other details that I removed stay out..--Hazhk (talk) 16:53, 25 August 2016 (UTC)
@Hazhk: Instead of edit warring by reverting to your preferred version, you should be taking your concerns to the talk page of the article. You do not own the Japan article, and everything in it may not be your preferred content. That's why there are talk pages. Feel free to start a discussion now on Talk:Japan in order to gain consensus for what you are doing. If you continue reverting people to force your preferred version of the article, you may end up being blocked from editing. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 17:38, 25 August 2016 (UTC)
My pattern of editing does not constitute edit warring. I reverted once. -- Hazhk (talk) 22:53, 25 August 2016 (UTC)
@Hazhk: If someone reverts your edit and you revert it back, that is edit warring. You don't need to do it three times for it to be considered such. If your edit is reverted, you should start a discussion on the talk page of the article rather than trying to force your preference through. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 00:14, 26 August 2016 (UTC)

Mikage disambiguation page[edit]

Hi Nihonjoe,

I think the fictional characters you are listing on the Mikage disambiguation page shouldn't be listed there. There are numerous people with the name Mikage, both real and fictional, mentioned in Wikipeida articles. I don't think it is a proper use of a disambiguation page to link to each page that happens to involve someone named Mikage. That would clutter up the page with relatively minor uses, most of which someone is unlikely to search for using just the term "Mikage" (as opposed to searching for "Aya Mikage" or whichever specific Mikage they are looking for). The page should be limited to things that either have their own article, or are likely to be searched for and primarily known as "Mikage" alone. I considered nominating the page for deletion since there aren't any articles on the English Wikipedia that are just called Mikage, but after looking at the Japanese disambiguation page, I thought it was reasonable that someone might search for one of the places just using the term "Mikage". I don't think the same is true for any of the numerous people or fictional characters named Mikage mentioned on Wikipedia, including the ones from Ayashi no Ceres. Calathan (talk) 22:08, 31 August 2016 (UTC)

@Calathan: Actually, listing main characters from shows like that is common. And for Japanese names, it is extremely common for a person to only be called by their surname. If you can find more people with the surname of "Mikage", feel free to add them. The purpose of disambiguation pages is to help people find the right page. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 00:53, 1 September 2016 (UTC)
While I do commonly see fictional characters listed like that on disambiguation pages, I do not think it is correct to do so. Basically, you are making an WP:OTHERSTUFFEXISTS type of argument, but just because it is done often doesn't mean it is correct. The relevant sections of the guidelines are MOS:DABNAME and WP:NAMELIST, which both encourage only listing people on disambiguation pages for their given name or surname if they are commonly known by that name alone. While Japanese people are often addressed by their surname (with an honorific), that isn't the same thing as being known by one name. No one would ever refer to those Ayashi no Ceres characters as just "Mikage" and expect it to be understood who they were talking about. Calathan (talk) 02:59, 1 September 2016 (UTC)
@Calathan: Also, please stop edit warring to get your preferred version of the page. Your edit was reverted, so you should be discussing things and coming to a consensus before making any further changes like that. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 00:57, 1 September 2016 (UTC)
I do not believe I was edit warring. Reverting while giving an explanation is part of the normal WP:BRD behavior, which is generally encouraged behavior. It is basically the opposite of edit warring. I hadn't given an explanation why I removed the characters previously, so I assumed you had reverted because you didn't know why I removed them. I certainly wasn't planning to revert again if you didn't agree with my explanation. Please do not accuse people of edit warring when they are not doing so. Calathan (talk) 01:41, 1 September 2016 (UTC)
@Calathan: You misunderstand WP:BRD, then. The way it works is this: You make a Bold edit, someone Reverts it, you Discuss it on the talk page. It's really simple that way. If you revert it back after someone already reverted your edit, you are edit warring, whether you believe it or not. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 17:04, 4 September 2016 (UTC)
I reverted you once, but again, that was because I hadn't given an explanation for my previous edit. There is no possible way you reverting me once, and then me reverting you back once with an explanation of why I had made the initial edit could be considered an edit war. You just want to accuse me of doing something wrong because I disagree with you, but someone merely disagreeing with you isn't edit warring. Calathan (talk) 22:21, 5 September 2016 (UTC)
You're reading far too much into my comments. I don't want to accuse you of edit warring. Rather, I'm simply pointing out that what you did was edit warring. You're welcome to not do anything with the information, but your interpretation of WP:BRD is wrong. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 18:19, 6 September 2016 (UTC)
I'm sorry if I my replies were getting a little heated there. To put things a different way, if you removed some content that you thought went against guidelines (without giving a good explanation why), and someone reverted that, would you remove the content again while explaining the reasons why it didn't belong, or would you leave the content that went against the guidelines in place? I think you would probably remove it one more time while explaining why the content didn't belong. I think most experienced Wikipedia editors would remove the content again in that situation, and I think they would consider that perfectly appropriate editing. After all, once you've given an explanation of why it doesn't belong, your hope is that the person who added it back in will agree that it doesn't belong. I think that what I did isn't against the behavioral policies, and instead is the way most experienced editors would act. I certainly didn't mean to imply that you were accusing me of edit warring out of spite or anything like that, but I just felt like your judgment was a little clouded by the fact that you were the person being reverted, and that if you saw the same behavior in any other circumstances you would have thought it was fine. Maybe that isn't the case, and you would have felt my actions were inappropriate even if they didn't involve you. However, I feel strongly that what I did couldn't be consider edit warring under the edit warring policy (a single revert, or perhaps two if you consider the removal of content in my initial edit to be a "revert", cannot possibly be repeatedly overriding someone else's contributions), and I feel strongly that most experienced editors wouldn't consider a single revert with an explanation to be edit warring. If you still disagree and think what I did was edit warring, then I just don't think we will ever agree on what edit warring is, and it is probably futile to continue this conversation. Calathan (talk) 19:13, 6 September 2016 (UTC)
I would have taken things to the talk page. That's my general practice. Regarding edit warring, I think you're splitting hairs to not classify it as edit warring (even it's only the first step into edit warring territory). ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 19:18, 6 September 2016 (UTC)

re UFAA[edit]

Hi Nihonjoe, Your reply & my report's disappeared so I figured I'd reply here,
I wasn't sure on how to really deal with the issue and I thought it was best I made a report and take it from there, It happens alot at UFAA where someone will tag a report as "discussing with user" and then after a few days it's forgotten with so I was trying to get it sorted there and then instead of it all being forgotten about,
Despite my rather bad reply I wasn't having a go at that admin nor was I gunning for the editor to be blocked (infact I wasn't even looking for any admin action!),
So I apologize if it seemed like I was giving the admin a hard time, It honestly wasn't my intention at all, I just wanted it to really be dealt with there and then but I guess the COI message was that answer,

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, Nihonjoe. This message is intended to notify administrators of important changes to the protection policy.

Extended confirmed protection (also known as "30/500 protection") is a new level of page protection that only allows edits from accounts at least 30 days old and with 500 edits. The automatically assigned "extended confirmed" user right was created for this purpose. The protection level was created following this community discussion with the primary intention of enforcing various arbitration remedies that prohibited editors under the "30 days/500 edits" threshold to edit certain topic areas.

In July and August 2016, a request for comment established consensus for community use of the new protection level. Administrators are authorized to apply extended confirmed protection to combat any form of disruption (e.g. vandalism, sock puppetry, edit warring, etc.) on any topic, subject to the following conditions:

  • Extended confirmed protection may only be used in cases where semi-protection has proven ineffective. It should not be used as a first resort.
  • A bot will post a notification at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard of each use. MusikBot currently does this by updating a report, which is transcluded onto the noticeboard.
Please review the protection policy carefully before using this new level of protection on pages. Thank you.
