4Kids Entertainment

Thanks for all your work in editing the 4Kids article. It's much appreciated, since it seems to attract a lot of POV comments and vandalism. --Haemo 01:29, 3 January 2007 (UTC)

Some say that 4Kids Entertainment is run by demon-mouth aliens from beyond the moon.[citation needed] --Haemo 01:35, 3 January 2007 (UTC)

Sorry to bother you, but I've been dealing with a couple of problems regarding this page, and have already run up again the WP:3RR. I was wondering if you could keep an eye on it for a while, or give me some tips to dealing with the problem in another way (I'm still new to this whole thing). Thanks! --Haemo 02:40, 4 January 2007 (UTC)

I noticed that he had added himself to the list of main contributors. I was wondering if you'd be okay if I add myself. I frequently read (and from time to time participate) in the ACML, and I do keep tabs on a number of conventions. :: Colin Keigher (Talk) 02:06, 5 January 2007 (UTC)

I've yet to get the notionation for deletation thingy right. I always get confused as to which of the article deletes I should be using... Its not as simple as it looks. Angel Emfrbl 10:03, 24 January 2007 (UTC)

Yeah I didn't need the speech but never mind. I was just saying that its not simple. Though I must say it - one article was put up for deletation... Yet you went around and tagged a dozen others??? It seems somewhat unfair how that was done. Yeah some you were right in tagging, they really should have been tagged a while ago. But you've tagged a few articles others didn't want tagged. I'm not going to go onto more about that, only some folks aren't happy about it. Its too overwhelming how you've just tagged so many articles so soon. Angel Emfrbl 13:23, 25 January 2007 (UTC)

The Many Dream Journeys of Meme

Hi, I saw you put clean up tag on The Many Dream Journeys of Meme. May I know why? Is my english a problem or insufficient datas? Cheers. --BokicaK 06:03, 27 January 2007 (UTC)

I hoped that someone from english or french (cartoon was very popular there) wikipedia would expand articl, 'cause Serbian national television aired about 30 epizodes in early '90s. Cartoon was primary educational, main character Meme (or something like that) was telling stories about some of major scientific discoveries like phone, railway, steam engine, photography, theories of evolution and relativity, nature of light... Show also contained few futuristic and SF episodes which "predicted" (the cartoon is from early 1980s) things like internet, video-call, etc. In the other season episodes were about modern science and technology: oil, gold, plastic, ceramic, atoms... This is all I know, all additional sources I found were on french, russian or italian.
My biggest concern was\is my english, 'cause I'm lacking expirience in writing and speaking on english. Anyway, thanks. --BokicaK 16:10, 27 January 2007 (UTC)

Tomo-Dachi

Hi, I saw your comment on the Tomo-Dachi second deletion page Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Tomo-Dachi (2) and wanted to ask what exactly constitutes a 'reliable third-party source'. I have references back to the conventions website and forums, the University of Ulster’s website and respected 'www.animecon.com' website.

In the context of this convention what would be considered a reliable third party source for from what I see other conventions don’t seem to have any which doesn’t make it easy to work out. [I.e., Otakon] Butch-cassidy 14:47, 5 February 2007 (UTC)

So a third party newspaper such as the Belfast telegraph, Daily Ireland, etc doing their own articles on the convention would qualify? I shall get them scanned and uploaded tonight. Thanks for the info. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Butch-cassidy (talkcontribs) 09:33, 6 February 2007 (UTC).
I have added a link to the Belfast Telegraths 'Manga from heaven' article. Butch-cassidy 10:58, 9 February 2007 (UTC)

Mate I have been adding further sources to the Tomo-Dachi page and would appreciate it if you could point out what other info needs to be confirmed by sourcing to be able to remove that needing references box at the top of the page. ^^ Thanks. Butch-cassidy 12:19, 27 February 2007 (UTC)

Burger King Deletion

I figured I'd repeat my question here, if I'm not making the proper argument for overturning the deletion, exactly how should I make it? I believe the Admin was wrong. Not that I disagree wrong, but wrong in the sense that they didn't observe the facts of the situation correctly. Is this really not something that can be reviewed? That an Admin's mistake is final and absolute? That is neither fair nor proper process. As I see it, the Admin in this case was mistaken, and I also believe you are mistaken, because you are focusing overly on arguments that may be flawed, but ignoring the valid ones. If you truly do believe it was proper to delete this article, please try to convince me of that, but do me the courtesy of not making your arguments by throwing links to various essays around. That won't work. Or if you're just not interested, do nothing and leave the situation alone. FrozenPurpleCube 21:42, 5 February 2007 (UTC)

Again, I am sorry if I've offended you, perhaps I was overly blunt or snippish, but to be honest, I am troubled by your comments. All you've done is complain that I'm not following policy or procedure with regards to my objections, and instead of telling me a better way, you just throw a bunch of links to further essays at me. That is not very persuasive, or helpful, in fact, it feels rather hostile. I asked what I did wrong, how I could have done it better. You haven't suggested anything. Now I will explain to you how you could have persuaded me better. You could have pointed out where I was mistaken in my comments, or you could have explained how I could have worded my objections properly. You could also have avoided throwing links to a bunch of essays at me. It is possible that some comments on the AFD were of that nature. That doesn't mean other comments weren't, and in fact, the number of comments that say one thing or another is not a factor, as AFDs are not votes. So it doesn't matter if some arguments were bad, that doesn't mean you ignore the good arguments. And since you haven't addressed the facts of any of the comments I made, like this article being sourced, or the same information remaining on Wikipedia anyway, I'd say you are doing just that. I'd say you're just complaining that I'm not doing things the way you want. And I consider that trouble waiting to happen. FrozenPurpleCube 23:32, 5 February 2007 (UTC)

Hi. There's an interview with Toshimichi Otsuki related to the new Evangelion movies in (December 2006) Newtype USA 5 (12). Could you check the title of the interview (or the title of the feature if it's part of a feature) and which pages it is on?

Fighting anime

Hi Farix,

I feel unconfortable about deleting Fighting anime, an article whose deletion you proposed. There are over 36,000 google hits. This does not establish notability of the term at all, but it's definately not a complete neologism. I'd suggest you nominate it for AfD, if you believe the article should be deleted anyway.

Happy Editing

Another Anime Convention

During the AfD discussion for Another Anime Convention you had asked to see reliable independent sources proving that Another Anime Convention is the largest/only anime convention in the state. I have provided them for you. Please see the article. Thank you. Kopf1988 15:59, 18 March 2007 (UTC)

Farix, I would like to invite you to take another look at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Another Anime Convention (2nd nomination). I had presented that Another Anime Convention is the biggest anime convention in New Hampshire, but before much discussion had taken place the deletion was closed. I understand that you requested verification of that statement, and I did my best to provide it. I hope to point out that verifiability and not verification is required for Wikipedia. Any user can search Google for Anime Conventions in New Hampshire, and they will find no current ones (especially none larger than Another Anime Convention). Would you like to voice your opinion, for or against, at the deletion review? It would be appreciated. Kopf1988 00:56, 20 March 2007 (UTC)

I suck at finding out how to do them. Could i copy the ones over that you have, the manga and anime ones, and the wikiproject anime one as I was told i could join it if i wanted to.

Osamu Tezuka

I see that you've done a lot of work on anime and manga, "TheFarix". While my previous Wiki work has revolved around monsters, one part of anime/manga that needs a LOT of work are the articles on Osamu Tezuka and his works.

I just don't feel like there is proper coverage of all of his material, and I hope to rectify that. I've started by working on the category Osamu Tezuka characters and will take it from there.

The Apprentice (UK) edits

I have restored the template you described as "redundant" in Week 11. It was decided after discussion on our talk page that information on future episodes should be preceded by a warning. The other day, I removed the old {{ApprenticeSpoiler}} template and replaced it with this accepted one. I support your removal of the other spoiler templates, but I thought I would explain the revert in this instance. Let me know what you think --Fritzpoll 19:20, 2 June 2007 (UTC)

Well, unfortunately, as time progresses, we find that more and more information is dumped into these sections in advance of the programmes - despite our best efforts to prevent it (a glance at the history suffices here). A warning is therefore generally in order for advance episodes, since there is often spoiling material. Fortunately, it won't be in place for long, since the episode will air in a few days. --Fritzpoll 19:27, 2 June 2007 (UTC)
Normally mistaken belief in the knowledge of the tabloid press, or just vandalism. The tag is mostly there for the intervening time before one of the regular editors can leap in and get rid of it. Thanks for your diligence, though, and for removing the other templates. Cheers --Fritzpoll 19:35, 2 June 2007 (UTC)

Hello re: lolicon

Hi, I just wanted to let you know that I put a colon in front of the [[Image:Final Solution-chan.jpg]] that you placed on ANI, so the picture doesn't show. Maybe it is a fault with my browser, but the image took up the whole screen, and I was afraid it might show up on other people's screens as well. I would have done this for any image, regardless of the content. I apologize if I have done a disservice. Thank you.--0rrAvenger 03:00, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

No, it was actually my mistake. I intended to post a link to the image, but forgot that I needed to included a colon in front of it. All you did was fix my goof before I could correct it. --Farix (Talk) 03:03, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

Descendant projects

While I agree in theory that you shouldn't need to tag an article with both WP:GEORGIAUS and WP:ATL, each of those templates transcludes a quality/priority category that the respective project uses to manage and contribute to articles. If the ATL project automatically included those categories, I wouldn't care about the removal of the template... but it doesn't, so I do. —Disavian (talk/contribs) 13:03, 14 June 2007 (UTC)

re: List of fictional characters who can manipulate XYZ

It's funny, I would have thought that any article that deals with a particular subject would be considered "within the scope" of a wikiproject that looks after that subject. And since the lists you referenced do contain material based on anime and manga characters, as well as having had editors concerned with those subjects editing the lists to improve them, it looks like they are with in the remit of WikiProject Anime and manga. That is, of course, unless you can provide a link to where that project states "We don't support lists," or where the editors associated with that project (the community that is) reached a consensus that the lists specifically, or a general type of list, are not to be included.

If there isn't such a guideline or consensus, how about putting the headers back?

- J Greb 17:29, 17 June 2007 (UTC)

OK, I can see where you're coming from, but there is a quibble point. Between "...all media, persons, organizations and fandom substantially related to..." and "Notable characters, episodes, issues, and merchandise of the above media;" an argument can be made that a few of the lists do qualify as they contain a sizable amount of anime or manga originated material.
The quibble comes in with: 1) Defining "substantial". Is it "almost all" (75%+ say), majority (51%+), or a "fair amount" (25%+ say)? And 2) if the elements listed are considered notable issues of the media.
- J Greb 17:51, 17 June 2007 (UTC)

I disagree with you

I am hoping that this will provide enough of a push to get more people to provide information and resources to the stubs to help fill them out. Since Osamu Tezuka is the God of Manga, I feel that his works need better representation here on Wikipedia. Therefore, I am personally intiating an endeavor to ensure that as many of his works and his worlds are here on Wikipedia.

If you want me to add more plot details, then I can and shall. It's really no trouble at all to include plot details and other story information. In the meanwhile, I will continue to create them until the entire List of Osamu Tezuka manga is filled.

By hook or by crook.  :)

OtakuMan 20:46, 18 June 2007 (UTC)

It's not just one or two sentences! I have a complete infobox, external links, See also content, references, images completely filled out with fair use information and reasoning, and if it's plot you want, then a good paragraph or two of plot you will get! And I'm not too worried about them getting lost. I've been tying these all together under Osamu Tezuka!
If it's lost in the shuffle you're worried about, fear not! I'll start a collaboration if I have to!  :)
OtakuMan 20:59, 18 June 2007 (UTC)
Well, as it happens, there are others besides me who disagree with you on that. There are many existing anime and manga stubs out there, floating around, that have less information than what I've been providing in the current pages I've been creating. Just look at the current state of Fumoon! I've got a lot of work to cover when I get to that one! References, Infoboxes, See Also, and External links are the least I can do to ensure that awareness grows for the works of Osamu Tezuka's works.
If you really have a problem with the work I'm doing, I suggest taking it up with the chiefs of the Anime and Manga WikiProject. Regardless, I'm not going to stop what I'm doing unless directly ordered by Wikipedia itself.
OtakuMan 21:35, 18 June 2007 (UTC)
I was not aware of that. Alright then, tell you what. Take a look at the Plot information I plugged into the Stub pages and let me know what you think of them. Is that enough proper information? I used combinations of information from TezukaOsamu@World and Anime News Network to write the plot out. I hope that's enough information to meet WikiProject's standards. I am interested in getting a collaboration for Osamu Tezuka's work together. What would one need to do to accomplish that?
OtakuMan 22:00, 18 June 2007 (UTC)
Glad to hear that. It's a nice vote of confidence.  :) Although I thought I had done the Plot information out-of-universe. I approached them with a kind of "Movie Trailer Narration" way of describing the plot. If you have a very good example of out of universe that I could use, I'd gladly tidy them up if that helps. Now that I have an idea of what you're looking for, I can make the other blank pages more like them to ensure higher quality.
OtakuMan 22:11, 18 June 2007 (UTC)
I'll see what I can do to edit those later. In the meanwhile, I've also added some more detail to Adolf (manga) with a Characters section. I think I get what you mean by "In-Universe" which basically means "Don't spoil it too much". Although what about the Character section? I'm interested in your feedback on that.

Assessments, B-class

Just letting you know that a lack of references does not demote an article from B-class to Start-class. In fact the grading scheme specifically states that B-class articles "has significant gaps or missing elements or references". I've been looking over your re-assessments and they're all fine except Paranoia Agent. If we demoted every article that only had one reference then we'd be all out of B-class articles. --Squilibob 10:11, 20 June 2007 (UTC)

Since you seem to know the intricacies of the {{WikiProject Anime and manga}} project template, I wonder if you'd be willing to help update the {{WikiProject Japan}} project template to auto-detect templates, categories, etc., like the anime template does. I can create the categories for everything, but I don't completely understand all the "switch" and other esoteric stuff in the template.
