Hello, Reader72, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are a few good links for newcomers:

I know that you have contributed a large number of articles concerning topics relating to Japan's role in World War II. Unfortunately, many of these articles are essentially incomprehensible in English. I cannot be of any assistance myself, but I suggest you attempt to locate a Wikipedia user who is fluent in both Japanese and English who can assist you in improving the translation of your articles into English.

I notice that more than one article you created has been deleted because it is completely incomprehensible to the average English speaker. I suggest you check the lists of Japanese or Chinese speakers (depending on which language you're getting material from) who might be able to help you translate. ~~ N (t/c) 18:26, 2 October 2005 (UTC)

ところで、日本の組合について作文を書くと、この組合の日本語の名前とja:-interwikilinkをいれてください。-- Mkill 11:10, 14 October 2005 (UTC)

Some more, please

  1. Mark your articles with [[Category:Empire of Japan]], so people will find them.
  2. Put a space behind all commas
  3. Start sentences with a capital letter
  4. Check up the following english words: you, your, why. You use them completely wrong.
  5. Check how other people improve your articles and learn from it. This will greatly improve your articles.
  6. Before you start an article, try to find out if it already exists in Wikipedia.
  7. Put your articles into the Wikipedia of your mother tongue (Spanish?) and ask others to translate. This will save everybody a lot of hassle, and you will contribute to the big Wikipedia project much better.

Thank you. Mkill 13:42, 14 October 2005 (UTC)

English punctuation[edit]

Hello User:Reader72, and welcome to English Wikipedia!

You might want to read up on English punctuation, as you are making a number of consistent errors. The period (.), also called the full stop, is only used as a separator between sentences, while the comma (,) and semicolon (;) are used within a sentence.

Also, all these punctuation marks are usually followed with a space. So, for example, consider the following text you contributed to Kiichiro Hiranuma:

He was born in Okayama Prefecture.who if one defender of State Shintoism thinking line.himself organized the "Shintoist Rites Research Council" to research all ancient Shinto rites and practices,along the Prince Kanin,another nationalist and religious supporter of official Shinto,between other nationalists political and ideological works in period.

When these punctuation rules are applied, we get the more correct:

He was born in Okayama Prefecture, who if one defender of State Shintoism thinking line himself organized the "Shintoist Rites Research Council" to research all ancient Shinto rites and practices, along the Prince Kanin, another nationalist and religious supporter of official Shinto, between other nationalists political and ideological works in period.

Note that there are also errors in the English above: actually, I have no idea what you're trying to say. However, these errors are with the grammar, not the punctuation. --Saforrest 17:06, 17 October 2005 (UTC)

PLEASE USE SPANISH OR PORTUGUESE WIKIPEDIA![edit]

Dear Reader72!

Since you are a Nikkei from Latin America (as you wrote on Talk:Empire of Japan), your Spanish or Portuguese should be much much better than your English. So PLEASE write your articles in Spanish or Portuguese and put them in the Spanish (see es:Portada) or Portuguese (see pt:Página principal) Wikipedia. There are lots of professional translators in the Wikipedia who would love to translate your articles... It is much easier to translate a well-written article in somebodys mother tongue than to try to understand somebodys gibberish in a language he can hardly write in. I never learned Spanish and still I can understand Spanish texts better than your English. Really. I mean it.

PLEASE!

Study English![edit]

Your sentence, taken from the article Kokuhonsha:

"These organization was dissolve for orders of Allied autorities at final of conflict in 1945,and your leaders was arrest for war crimes."

  1. These organization: these is a plural demonstrative pronoun. But organization is singular. These two don't fit together. You are looking for the singular version of these, which is this organization.
  2. was dissolve: to be dissolved is a passive construction (see English passive voice). It needs the past participle, so it must be dissolved here.
  3. the agent (the acting person) in a passive sentence is marked by the preposition by. So it must be was dissolved by Allied authorities.
  4. at final of conflict makes no sense at all. What conflict? Ahh, World War II. But the Kokuhonsha was not dissolved right at the end. It was dissolved during the Allied occupation period. And since there is an article Occupied Japan, let's link it: during the Allied occupation period
  5. In the English language, and in pretty much every other that uses Latin script, we put a space ( ) behind a comma.
  6. your is a possessive second person pronoun. It is derived from you. In Wikipedia, you means the reader. So if you write your leaders, it means the leaders of the readers. Well, my leader is Angela Merkel. I would be quite surprised if she was arrested for war crimes. Well, maybe you mean the leaders of the Kokuhonsha? So let's use third person pronoun. Third person pronoun for things is? it. So its leaders were arrested for war crimes. なるほど. Maybe we can link war crime too.
  7. leaders is plural again. So if we want to use the passive construction to be arrested (with our old friend, Mr. past participle) with the leaders, we need past plural form of to be, which is were. So Its leaders were arrested for war crimes. Well, actually, in good english, they were arrested on charges of war crimes, but I think this would be asking for too much.

Gratulations! Seven mistakes in only one sentence! Now if you would spend some time with English learning books instead of dumping low-quality neutrality-questionable articles on Wikipedia...

Please check my work[edit]

I made an attempt to clean up grammar and spelling in your article "Imperial Youth Federation". Please take a look and see if I guessed correctly about the meaning of the text. I also kindly suggest that you do submit your articles to a native English reader for proofing before you submit them to Wikipedia. The information is very useful, but no one will be able to use it if it's unintelligible. Thanks. Her Pegship 20:02, 13 November 2005 (UTC)

Imperial Youth Federation and others[edit]

I see you have a history of working on the article Imperial Youth Federation, Imperial Volunteer Corps, and Imperial Youth Corps. I am looking at it from the project Wikipedia:Unreferenced articles where they are some of the longest {{unreferenced}} tagged articles that does not meet at least the barest minimum of verifiability. It has been tagged and completely without references since June 2006. It would be extremely helpful if you had some references you could add to these articlea to help support its verifiability and notability. Thanks for any help you can give.
