Query and suggestion[edit]

Hi Sturmgewehr88. It's nice to find another WWII buff. (My stepfather was a gunner in B25s and B26s.) As you know there has been some brouhaha over your username. I'm curious as to how you got the idea that the Panzer variant of the legendary 88 was called the Sturmgewehr 88. The actual name for the gun is the Kampfwagenkanone 88. Do you think you might be willing to change your name to KwK88? Seems like a win-win: you get the correct name for the gun, and it's not a name that would give people the wrong ideas. Short Brigade Harvester Boris (talk) 01:19, 11 February 2015 (UTC)

@Short Brigade Harvester Boris: See the discussion, as you're somewhat mistaken. I took the generic word "assault rifle" and combined it with 88, and Sturmgewehr is abbreviated as StG, so that's how I condense my username. Besides, it's the 88 that people are so concerned about, so replacing "assault rifle" with "tank cannon" doesn't exactly make everyone happy. ミーラー強斗武 (StG88ぬ会話) 03:47, 11 February 2015 (UTC)
Hi StG88. You made an edit on Jihadi John and, to me, your name really stood out. In my case, the mismatched combination of a German assault rifle, with a purported connection to Hitler, and numbers that are used to represent Heil Hitler, which now I understand is unintentional in your case, immediately led me to make assumptions about you. I know, that's not your problem, but ultimately it's you that is affected. If I'd seen Kampfwagenkanone88/KwK88, or some historic variant of the 88 AA/tank gun, or SturmgewehrXX/StGXX, where XX is any other number (other than 18! :) ), then I wouldn't have thought twice about it.
I don't know what the naming format over on the German WP is. I imagine that they're pretty touchy about potential Nazi references, as you've seen, but I'd be surprised if they banned names that represent a real thing with 88 or 18 in them, for example ArmaLite AR-18.

Mitsudomoe[edit]

Konnichiwa (Hello)! "Mitsudomoe" isn't used for only Ryukyuan. For example, Kobayakawa Clan also uses this crest. The source was "Bungo Takada Shi Shi" (written by Bungotakada city. Sorry it is not now on sale because it's old book...) It is written about History of Kyusyu. Could you read Japanese ? If you can, please read this website.(都甲氏(Tōgō clan)) It explains about Tōgō Clan. The author of this website also made extracts from "Bungo Takada Shi Shi."

Taking part in a discussion that may have started with an IBAN violation?[edit]

Hi Sturmgewehr.

I woke up this morning (Showa Day, but I was working until 11 p.m. last night so I slept in) and looked at the page history on Talk:Kenji Miyazawa and, seeing Catflap's name, checked what he posted and went to AN to ask that the section be closed and him warned (but not blocked).

I go back to the talk page and find that not only his close friend and ally, and possible IBAN-violation proxy, but you as well had already posted in the section. I'll withdraw my request for the discussion to be closed if you think it should stay open, and replace it with a specific request that Catflap's be stricken or collapsed. Otherwise, I'll leave as is.

Hijiri 88 (やや) 02:31, 29 April 2015 (UTC)

@Hijiri88: at this point I don't think it matters either way. That conversation was stopped dead by John Carter (calling it "independent" of the RfC and using it to end the RfC). Had John Carter not done this, I think I might have had a shot at a resonable discussion with Catflap about the state of the lede. But oh well. And I think you may have jumped the gun a little, as he was (from my perspective) just responding to the RfC and not attempting to interact with you. Sure, commenting on that page at all is getting close to the line, but he hasn't crossed it yet. ミーラー強斗武 (StG88ぬ会話) 03:17, 29 April 2015 (UTC)
Hmm...... does he normally monitor RFCs and post in them on occasion? He didn't respond to any other RFCs at the same time. It seems much more likely that he has kept watching either that page in particular, or my edits in general. (Or that he has been engaging the discussion from the start, but I doubt that theory will gain much traction with the wider community...) Hijiri 88 (やや) 03:57, 29 April 2015 (UTC)

Kenji draft[edit]

Hey Sturmgewehr88, sorry to bother you with this again, but recent developments have made me worried that if I go to all the trouble of completely rewriting the article and radically increasing its coverage of the stuff Icuc2 said I should, when I try to overlay the draft on the article I will immediately be reverted and forced to discuss each individual point for weeks on end as I have up to this point on the relatively tiny matter of whether "Kokuchukai" and "nationalism" should be mentioned in the lead.

Do you also think I should just give up and make "piecemeal" edits? I took your editing my redraft as a blessing on the project, especially in the light of your previous talk page posts, but was I wrong to read it this way? I have reverted my own removal of the Kokuchukai name-drop in the lead of my redraft in the hopes that there are no other problems. Pending discussion of course: your own comments on this issue were unclear so I don't think there is any "consensus" on whether Kokuchukai should be name-checked in the lead one way or the other.

But...

Hijiri 88 (やや) 13:07, 1 May 2015 (UTC)

Also, on the subject of your previous RFC, I notice that you noticed that one of the two users on the "nationalism should be in the lead" turned around to our side on that issue, thus essentially ending the discussion and making your original RFC question completely void. When I suggested a new RFC or collapsing the previous discussion and changing the RFC question, I was overruled.[1][2][3][4] But now the same user is saying that the nationalism RFC produced a definite consensus on whether or not the Kokuchukai should be mentioned in the lead, which seems really weird to me.

Any thoughts?

Hijiri 88 (やや) 13:33, 1 May 2015 (UTC)

@Hijiri88: It's not a bother at all! I think the draft is going great (would be better if other editors pitched in though). If other editors add to the draft and the article gets reverted after the overlay, then whoever reverted it is going against consensus.
As for the RfC, I think it should be closed since it is no longer an issue (I just love how John Carter made such a big deal over it and then turned around and agreed). Everyone finally agreed that nationalism shouldn't be mentioned in the lede, but everyone but you has also agreed (or not opposed) that the Kokuchūkai should be mentioned. Anyway, I'll get more involved with the redraft and we should continue to encourage the others, especially Icuc2, to contribute as well. ミーラー強斗武 (StG88ぬ会話) 18:42, 1 May 2015 (UTC)
Well, you have to admit that the discussion has been pretty toxic up to this point, preventing any true rational consensus one way or the other. Your statement above is the first time you have said "Kokuchukai belongs in the lead" without also saying "nationalism doesn't and several users who are trying to push it in are behaving tendentiously", and Nishidani's posts were the same. SilkTork initially said that the Kokuchukai has to be in the lead based on how the body was structured at that time: I highly doubt any random user who comes across the redraft once it's completed would come to the same conclusion. And it's very difficult to consider what Icuc2 has said as being in support of discussing the Kokuchukai in the lead or anywhere else.
I'm going to drop it for now (or... I'm going to try to drop it... I don't know if the others will let me, though) and work on finishing the draft, and not touch the Kokuchukai reference in the lead in the draft. Then once the article is better, and once the dust has settled (and hopefully once John Carter is banned from either interacting with me or going anywhere near the Miyazawa Kenji article) we can go back and discuss the Kokuchukai-lead issue again and all be grown-ups about it one way or the other.

Worst wikimistake ever[edit]

i was just going back over the March RFC to verify that I had in fact said what I told Icuc2 I had said about the dragon/poet intro, and I found something hilariously ironic.

On the morning of March 12, 2015, I mentioned a user's name on the talk page of an article that user had never edited nor shown any interest in. Two months later it's still biting me in the ass.

Could this be a candidate for WP:AAAARGH?

Hijiri 88 (やや) 09:37, 2 May 2015 (UTC)

Photo request? Main entrance to the South Mississippi Correctional Institution[edit]

I saw that you were located in southern Mississippi. Do you do photo requests? If so, how far away is South Mississippi Correctional Institution (Leakesville) from Hattiesburg? Are you interested in posting a photo of the main entrance sign/gate? (please do not try to actually enter the property, though!) I took a photo of the main gate to Parchman and I was thinking of something like that. WhisperToMe (talk) 13:21, 4 May 2015 (UTC)

@WhisperToMe: well it's a 45 minute drive from Hattiesburg, but I'd be glad to swing by there! Btw, did you just happen to drive past Parchman and snap a picture of it or did you go out of your way to find it? ミーラー強斗武 (StG88ぬ会話) 13:43, 4 May 2015 (UTC)
Thanks in advance! About Parchman, I was in a car driving by it. Parchman wasn't the main reason for the car's route, but I knew Parchman was going to be along the route. I had my camera ready as the main gate approached. It looks like somebody painted it yellow (previously a lot of the pictures showed the gate as white).
Another thing: I wonder if you or your wife know about the hoshuko (part-time Japanese schools) of Jackson, Mississippi, Oxford, Mississippi, and Memphis (Japanese in Southaven, et. al. would go to the Memphis school). Here is an Ole Miss page about the Oxford Japanese School. Jackson's is listed by the consulate in Nashville but no independent website seems to exist.
WhisperToMe (talk) 13:49, 4 May 2015 (UTC)
@WhisperToMe: ah ok I understand. About the hoshuko, no I don't know anything about them. Are you wanting a picture of them as well? I can get one of the hoshuko in Jackson, since I go up there at least once a month, but I probably won't go up to Oxford or Memphis anytime soon (I've only gone through North Mississippi once in my life and it was many years ago). ミーラー強斗武 (StG88ぬ会話) 14:26, 4 May 2015 (UTC)
I also saw that there's a hoshuko in New Orleans, and I could get a picture the next time I'm down there. ミーラー強斗武 (StG88ぬ会話) 14:29, 4 May 2015 (UTC)
Cool! I'm not exactly sure which building the Jackson Hoshuko holds its classes in. Its address is c/o Wesley Biblical Seminary. Anyway, if you are interested in taking more photos in the Jackson area, if it's okay I would like to show a list of photo requests. WhisperToMe (talk) 14:38, 4 May 2015 (UTC)
BTW the New Orleans Hoshuko is held at The Waldorf School of New Orleans. It used to be held at Tulane University. Hoshuko typically rent classroom space from universities/schools/churches since they only operate on weekends, and an office somewhere else houses the school administration. WhisperToMe (talk) 14:41, 4 May 2015 (UTC)
@WhisperToMe: not a problem! ミーラー強斗武 (StG88ぬ会話) 14:46, 4 May 2015 (UTC)

@WhisperToMe: well I went through Columbia and Leaksville today and got most of the pictures. Some of those addresses were wrong though (CSD office was a bench in the middle of a park?), and I honestly could not find the correctional facility. I found a trailer park full of Greene County police cruisers and some "State property: keep out" signs, but there wasn't much else to indicate that it was there. Also, there was a death in my extended family, so I'll be in Florida until next week. ミーラー強斗武 (StG88ぬ会話) 03:28, 9 May 2015 (UTC)
I'm sorry to hear that it happened. I hope your family will recover. I'll have to double-check the CSD address.
WhisperToMe (talk) 06:03, 9 May 2015 (UTC)

This webpage shows an image of the CSD headquarters and gives the address: "613 Bryan Avenue, Columbia, MS 39429" - I know some addresses may be hard to find or conflict with mapping programs. It's unfortunate.... WhisperToMe (talk) 06:17, 9 May 2015 (UTC)

@WhisperToMe: yeah, 613 Bryan is in the middle of a park, but on the corner of Bryan and Broad was File:Columbia School District Office Annex.jpg (close enough). Very unfortunate. ミーラー強斗武 (StG88ぬ会話) 06:37, 9 May 2015 (UTC)
One trick for next time is using alternate mapping software that may pinpoint the location better. Another is to search in Google Maps street view until you see the real building. In the country I'm in right now I can't use Google Maps easily... - Also, do you often visit the place in Florida in happier times? If so I can post requests for that area too. WhisperToMe (talk) 06:42, 9 May 2015 (UTC)
@WhisperToMe: Well like with the correctional facility, I used two different mapping softwares (considered going to the courthouse and asking for a real map) to find where it was supposed to be, but I just couldn't find a way in. And no, I only come out to Florida about twice a year at most. What country are you in? ミーラー強斗武 (StG88ぬ会話) 13:12, 9 May 2015 (UTC)

Hi Sturmgewehr88, I came across several photos on Wikipedia that you have recently taken in and around Hattiesburg, MS. That led me to your Talk page, where WhisperToMe had made several photo requests. If you are still amenable to photo requests, there are two buildings located at Camp Shelby that are on the National Register of Historic Places, but lack photos. Those structures are items #2 (Building 1071) and #3 (Building 6981) on the National Register of Historic Places listings in Forrest County, Mississippi. Images of those two buildings would complete the current NRHP listings in Forrest County. Thanks for your consideration. Woodlot (talk) 11:55, 9 May 2015 (UTC)

@Woodlot: I'm in Florida for the week, but when I get back I can easily get the pictures. ミーラー強斗武 (StG88ぬ会話) 13:02, 9 May 2015 (UTC)

Little help?[edit]

Believe it or not, Curtis has actually started an ANI thread asking for me to TBANned for supposedly engaging in "battleground" behaviour. Even though said battleground behaviour consists of pointing out the blatantly obvious fact that he has been misreading/misrepresenting sources, something you yourself have pointed out too. The thread is TLDR but several users who don't like me for other reasons have already voiced their support without actually reading the discussion. Little help convincing the community/admin corps that he is the one who needs a TBAN? Hijiri 88 (やや) 00:31, 16 May 2015 (UTC)Italic text

Signature[edit]

Hey Sturmgewehr, I noticed that your signature is causing a bit of problems with Wikipedia's syntax highlighting, and I would appreciate if you could fix it as a courtesy to myself and others.

Your current signature:

'''[[User:Sturmgewehr88|<span style="background:black"><span style="color:red">ミーラー強斗武</span>]]</span>''' ([[User_talk:Sturmgewehr88|StG88ぬ会話]])

What it creates:

ミーラー強斗武 (StG88ぬ会話)


Fixed version:

'''[[User:Sturmgewehr88|<span style="background:black"><span style="color:red">ミーラー強斗武</span></span>]]''' ([[User_talk:Sturmgewehr88|StG88ぬ会話]])

What it creates:

ミーラー強斗武 (StG88ぬ会話)

Thanks, Pishcal 02:14, 18 May 2015 (UTC)

@Pishcal: please see this discussion. Originally, my signature was how you are asking me to change it to, but another user a few months ago asked me to change it because it interfered with some gadget. I'll go ahead and ping @McGeddon:. ミーラー強斗武 (StG88ぬ会話) 02:23, 18 May 2015 (UTC)
I actually believe that we've both suggested the same change, and are referring to the same "gadget", the syntax highlighter. Just to clarify, I am asking to to change your signature to the bottom version. I've reformatted my original post just to make it a bit more clear. As you can see and as McGeddon said previously, they both render the same, but the bottom version doesn't cause problems to the syntax highlighter. Pishcal 02:27, 18 May 2015 (UTC)
@Pishcal: No, you're asking me to change my signature back to how it had been previously. My current signature is how McGeddon asked me to change it to fix the syntax highlighter. I will change it back now because you're asking me to, but I want to hear from McGeddon. ミーラー強斗武 (StG88ぬ会話) 02:44, 18 May 2015 (UTC)

Why My Edit Was Not Unnecessary[edit]

I can see that you recently reverted my edit on an article. The reason for this you claimed was that my edit was unnecessary. However, I utterly fail to understand why my edit would be unnecessary, all my edit consisted of was adding a metric measurement alongside the measurement in feet. The reason behind my edit is that the majority of the World's population are not brought up with feet as a measurement (including myself), therefore it is much harder to visually what six feet actually means. Therefore, I added the measurement in the metric system. I fail to understand why this is supposedly unnecessary. Yes, the metric measurement is mentioned in the fact box, but so is the measurement in feet, would it not then also be unnecessary to have the measurement in feet in the article? I sincerely hope that you do respond since I am genuinely intrigued to your thought process behind this. --Hejligan (talk) 11:39, 30 May 2015 (UTC)

@Hejligan: The source that stated his height used feet, so that's what I used in the article, and I put meters in the infobox for convenience of metric users, so yes I thought it was unnecessary. But I'm inclined to agree with you now, and I'll readd meters to the article. ミーラー強斗武 (StG88ぬ会話) 16:34, 30 May 2015 (UTC)

Thank you very much! It is pleasurable that we could reach agreement! --Hejligan (talk) 20:36, 30 May 2015 (UTC)

Uni-Ufugusuku[edit]

Can you put Uni-Ufugusuku in a more specific subcat than "15th-century Asian people"? It's the only article sitting in a vague categorization there. --Slivicon (talk) 15:15, 3 July 2015 (UTC)

Blocked sockpuppet tags[edit]

Hey, can you not leave the sockpuppet templates that suggest the user was blocked? That should be up the blocking admin when they really are blocked...

Thanks. Georgewilliamherbert (talk) 07:41, 23 August 2015 (UTC)

@Georgewilliamherbert: sorry about that, I'm just trying to link these socks to their master account and I assumed they'd been blocked. Is there a better template for this, or should I manually add Category:Wikipedia sockpuppets of ShantaePirate? ミーラー強斗武 (StG88ぬ会話) 14:49, 23 August 2015 (UTC)
