User:Tokek/List of applications developed by David Watanabe[edit]

Hello Tokek. Did you know that your copy of the Watanabe list is showing up at Category:Lists_of_software? So there are duplicate entries of basically the same list. Would you mind removing or commenting out the category tag from your user space list so that it doesn't show up in the Lists of Software category? Thanks. (Requestion 22:24, 9 March 2007 (UTC))

Sorry about that. Thanks for the heads up. Fixed. —Tokek 00:19, 10 March 2007 (UTC)
This article has been "PRODed" for deletion. Please consider addressing many of the problems with the article if you feel it is important to Wikipedia. Bpringlemeir 21:21, 14 September 2007 (UTC)
The David Watanabe list is proposed for deletion. You have made edits to this page, so I have informed you as a courtesy. Bpringlemeir 14:11, 17 September 2007 (UTC)

Redirect Reto-Romansch[edit]

You redirected Reto Romansch to Rhaeto-Romance languages. How certain are you that this is correct? I do not think 'Romansch' is the same as 'Romance language'; Reto-Romansch is the local term used for the Swiss variety of this language. A google search seems to confirm that it is only used for the Swiss Romansch. Do you have sources to prove otherwise?--DorisHノート 08:43, 22 March 2007 (UTC)

Notability of Nanaco[edit]

A tag has been placed on Nanaco, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article seems to be about a person, group of people, band, club, company, or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in Wikipedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not assert the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you feel that you can assert the notability of the subject, you may contest the deletion. To do this, add {{hangon}} on the top of the page (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag) and leave a note on the article's talk page explaining your position. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would confirm the subject's notability under Wikipedia guidelines.

For guidelines on specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for bands, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. 06:15, 3 May 2007 (UTC)

I wish you would make up your mind. At first you claimed that the article is blatant advertisement masquerading as an article, now you are saying that you are requesting speedy deletion based on lack of notability. If you haven't changed your mind by the time the speey tag is removed, I request that you put it up for AFD so that there is precedence of a keep consensus before anyone else tries to put a speedy tag on it in the future. —Tokek 12:45, 3 May 2007 (UTC)

Steam shower article[edit]

Hi Tokek, Why is it necessary to remove the article? It is the only informative piece of information about steam showers on the Internet, and it seems to have some very valuable information. In the discussion session of the article, people requested more sources, and I found that one. Thanks, WikiMeForLife (16:15, 6 May 2007)

Explanation has been provided why I believe the link is spam in the article's talk page. —Tokek 23:19, 6 May 2007 (UTC)
Hi Tokek, Adam Simmons is a retired plumber. The article clearly states that he no longer works. It's the Internet's most informative source of information on installing steam showers. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by WikiMeForLife (talkcontribs) 23:43, 6 May 2007 (UTC).
Okay, since he's retired, I agree with your assessment. I have reintroduced the link. Sorry for the trouble. —Tokek 00:04, 7 May 2007 (UTC)

I completely disagree with this link. Let it be known that I represent an online retailer who finds the information in this link to be outdated and not altogether fitting for all models of steam shower on the market.

Furthermore, this page makes recommendations to certain brands and HYPERLINKS to them. This is a commercial link and I will remove it every time I see until the Email, links, a recommendations are removed. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Ebeing (talkcontribs) 17:17, 23 May 2008 (UTC)

Video blog article[edit]

Hi Tokek,

I'm looking to get the video blog article expanded and I noticed you've contributed to the article in the past. It would be great if you could check it out again. It could use some help. Thanks! Pdelongchamp 22:36, 28 May 2007 (UTC)

Changes to Upskirt[edit]

Could you add a very brief description for Panchira to the section in Upskirt#Japan that you just modified. As it stands, that word is introduced without a way for the reader to understand what is means.

I'd do this myself if I knew for certain what this term meant. / edgarde 15:32, 9 June 2007 (UTC)

I've made an update to the article to resolve the issue. Apparently there is/was a discussion about the definition over at Talk:Panchira. The term is still linked from the Upskirt article in the See also section. —Tokek 12:17, 10 June 2007 (UTC)


Oh, sorry. I could only see a question mark.—Loveはドコ? (talkcontribs) 14:01, 15 June 2007 (UTC)


Per your request, I've copied the text of the deleted article to your userspace at User:Tokek/Jellyfist. NawlinWiki 15:45, 17 July 2007 (UTC)


You can not simply delete an article, as you did with the article on Saint-Tropez, not everything that was in that article was a copy of the website you indicated.This is vandalism —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:12, 4 December 2007 (UTC)

You read the article again, it has been corrected —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:28, 5 December 2007 (UTC)

The Template:Copyvio tag that was placed on the article is pretty self explanatory in terms of what the editing process should be in case of copyright violation. Specifically, it asks users to (A) NOT remove the tag ("Do not edit this page until an administrator has resolved this issue.") and (B) it provides a link to where one can start work on a non-copyright infringing version ("To write a new article without infringing material, follow this link to a temporary subpage."). This is not an WP:AFD or WP:SPEEDY. It wouldn't make sense to delete versions of the article prior to infringement, for example. —Tokek (talk) 20:51, 5 December 2007 (UTC)

Minamikyūshū, Kagoshima[edit]

Hello. Thanks for your help updating Japanese municipality articles to reflect recent mergers. Your assistance is much appreciated; however, please take the time to familiarize yourself with conventions relating to article naming and dissolved municipalities next time you find out-of-date articles. Thanks! -Amake (talk) 02:03, 9 December 2007 (UTC)

I was just about to do the article move as well. At first I created the article in the same style as Kitakyūshū, but later thought this case is different. Thanks for the links. —Tokek (talk) 02:20, 9 December 2007 (UTC)

Title field in Infobox animanga/Manga[edit]

Hi Tokek, happy new year =). As you may have guessed, I don't keep up with WP much these days; sorry for the delay in getting back to you.

As for Blue Drop, I think this is a case where there's no right answer. The lack of a title in the first "manga" heading may be confusing, but on the other hand, its presence would be redundant. My preference is to avoid redundancy, so that's what I wrote in the guidelines, but of course you may beg to differ. I can't say that we anticipated multiple manga boxes in this exact fashion, but we did expect to deal with shounen series and their inevitable multiplicity of media. My opinion remains unchanged, but if you feel strongly about this issue, feel free to bring it up on the infobox talk page. - mako 10:27, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

Could you please explain more fully?[edit]

Could you please explain more fully why you redirected redacted to redacted (film)?

Did you check the "what links here" button first? May I suggest it is a good idea to do this before you do a redirection? Geo Swan (talk) 04:33, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

It appears that someone else has already responded to your comment at Talk:Redacted, the responder's position being one that I am in agreement with. —Tokek (talk)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Banner seven and i holdings.jpg)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Banner seven and i holdings.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BetacommandBot (talk) 01:33, 12 February 2008 (UTC)

Roy Orbison - edit by[edit]

I reverted that edit because there was no edit summary, I didn't understand the reason for it and it looked like vandalism. Now you have restored the edit. Can you explain why please? CanOfWorms (talk) 12:39, 29 April 2008 (UTC)

Sorry, I meant the edit by Seems to have been a copy/paste cockup by my browser, However same comment, same question repeated. CanOfWorms (talk) 13:15, 29 April 2008 (UTC)

Let me know if the first comment I made in your talk page did not satisfy your question. —Tokek (talk) 13:21, 29 April 2008 (UTC)

thanks that helps. I obviously don't know enough about the workings of WP = \but \I think an edit summary would have helped and should have been there. CanOfWorms (talk) 14:08, 29 April 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion[edit]

See WP:CSD#A7; there was no assertion of notability for this person. I did check the links, but neither they, nor foreign Language articles, are grounds for notability. If you can provide reliable sources, please feel free to rewrite, or request the deleted text from me if you wish to continue it. Best, PeterSymonds (talk) 13:50, 20 July 2008 (UTC)

Since only about one or so edit was made, and it does not stand out particularly from other articles of the same category, I request that the article be restored so that the stub can be worked upon further, for example to address any problem areas such as an expanded statement on the person's notability, although the article did already state that she played leading roles in several nationally aired television shows (the ones linked in the "what links here"). —Tokek (talk) 14:20, 20 July 2008 (UTC)

This was a discussion about article Kana Hanazawa. —Tokek (talk) 23:27, 18 August 2008 (UTC)


Hi, I hope I've used the right button here and haven't deleted all your conversations. :s

Anyway, I'm curious about the yotsugana article you created. Is it possible for you to explain a little bit more about them, such as how the pronunciation differs between them, for example, when the four are pronounced identical, how are they pronounced? And when the four are pronounced different from one another, how are they pronounced then?

Thanks muchly. InnocentOdion (talk) 17:02, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

I should add that part. Will be translating that from the Japanese Wikipedia. —Tokek (talk) 19:05, 11 August 2008 (UTC)
Thanks man, you're the best! InnocentOdion (talk) 08:55, 12 August 2008 (UTC)
