Need birth year for voice actors help (BTVA)[edit]

I've been having conflict with an IP editor over birth years for voice actors. Most VAs have only publicized their birth month and day, and unless they have been publicized in some conventional newspaper, that's about it. However the IP insists that Behind The Voice Actors can be used for their birth place and year. BTVA as far as I understand only verifies some of the credits as indicated by the green check marks. Any suggestions would be appreciated. It affects a ton of the VAs. In the meantime, I've had to tag better source needed, but that will just keep those annoying BLP-like source tags alive.

@AngusWOOF: First, a clarification: from experience, most VAs actually do have known years of birth, and even those who have obscure years of birth, it's possible to find a source for a confirmed year of birth with a little digging. One interesting example is Emi Nitta: she has never confirmed a year of birth, but apparently there's a Japanese newspaper from her home prefecture (I saw a picture of it somewhere a long time ago, I think on 4chan, but unfortunately I can't recall the link) which, on a report on her, gave her age at the time of publication (if I can recall correctly, the newspaper was published in early-or-mid-2013, and gave her age as 27, which would mean her year of birth is 1986). However, a sizable minority don't have a known year of birth, and some of those in that minority just happen to be the bigger names. But for a start, try checking each voice actor's Japanese Wikipedia entry, and if a source for a year of birth is provided, then use it. You could also try Oricon, if the voice actor has an active musical career. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 06:47, 21 June 2015 (UTC)

Copyright Violation Detection - EranBot Project[edit]

A new copy-paste detection bot is now in general use on English Wikipedia. Come check it out at the EranBot reporting page. This bot utilizes the Turnitin software (ithenticate), unlike User:CorenSearchBot that relies on a web search API from Yahoo. It checks individual edits rather than just new articles. Please take 15 seconds to visit the EranBot reporting page and check a few of the flagged concerns. Comments welcome regarding potential improvements. These likely copyright violations can be searched by WikiProject categories. Use "control-f" to jump to your area of interest.--Lucas559 (talk) 22:25, 25 June 2015 (UTC)

Third Opinion required at Translation of Japanese title[edit]

Could we get some more community input over at the linked page. The discussion is based on the fact that if one (or more?) users think an Official Title is a mistranslation of Japanese text, then the actual translation holds more priority over the Official and Common Titles. —KirtMessage 12:18, 29 June 2015 (UTC)

Template:Infobox animanga character[edit]

Has the "age" parameter been depreciated? I tried playing around a bit and saw that it doesn't show if you try to use it. - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 20:49, 5 July 2015 (UTC)
