Shouldn't the '' after each name/word be that word Transliterated to Latin script and not Translated to English? --Raltseye (talk) 16:00, 1 October 2015 (UTC)

If it's not done for Japanese words (unless the word is not translated if used outside Japan), then I don't see why other languages should be different. How are English readers supposed to know what the word means when it's not translated? サトミュウ (SatoMew) 16:03, 1 October 2015 (UTC)
Well they don't have to, besides that's the way I've seen it be done. The Japanese name is already displayed at the top of the page so there is no need for that. --Raltseye (talk) 16:29, 1 October 2015 (UTC)
My point is that, since we don't transliterate Japanese unless necessary, then Chinese and Korean should abide by the same rule (as well as other languages like Russian). Perhaps we could add translations in brackets for those languages that already use the Latin alphabet but which meaning isn't obvious. サトミュウ (SatoMew) 16:34, 1 October 2015 (UTC)
No I don't think that is a good Idea because it is unnecessary, just because the Japanese name is translated does not mean that we should translate all other languages aswell, besides on the episode pages they are translated with tt but that is because many of the episodes have a different meaning in other languages, so they are tralslated however that is not the case. --Raltseye (talk) 16:42, 1 October 2015 (UTC)
To be honest, I don't even see the point in having the sections in the first place as we already have articles for that but that's beside the point. The presentation of different language names should be consistent. サトミュウ (SatoMew) 16:46, 1 October 2015 (UTC)
It is there for things that have names in other languages than English, German, French, Italian, Japanese, and Chinese which it would not be realistic to create its own page for. --Raltseye (talk) 16:54, 1 October 2015 (UTC)
I think you misunderstood me. We do have articles like this and this. サトミュウ (SatoMew) 17:03, 1 October 2015 (UTC)
Nope, thats exactly what I mean and still my point is that if you were to create pages like that for all other languages like Arabic, Swedish, Norweigian, Danish, Hebrew, Netherlandic, Russian, Polish, Ukrainian, Icelandic, Finnish, etc That would simply be unrealistic and tedious and hence this template. --Raltseye (talk) 17:16, 1 October 2015 (UTC)
Oh, I see. Well, it could be done by organizing the contents on such articles better. That's still not the focus of this discussion, which is the consistency or lack thereof in the transliteration and/or translation of names from other languages. サトミュウ (SatoMew) 17:21, 1 October 2015 (UTC)
Yes but do take into consideration that the English name is translated from Japanese and therefore it is intresting to know what the japanese name means, what the Russian, Bulgarian, Hebrew, or any other languages name mean is not realy relevant. --Raltseye (talk) 17:58, 1 October 2015 (UTC)

Edit Warring

You should know this by now. Don't agree with an edit? bring it up to the talk page, don't just revert it. This is your last warning.--ForceFire 12:01, 7 October 2015 (UTC)

And it applies to everyone. So if HoennMaster disagreed with my edit, then he should've brought it up on the talk page. サトミュウ (SatoMew) 13:42, 7 October 2015 (UTC)
He removed it, yes. But he wasn't the one edit warring, you were (by adding the removed template back).--ForceFire 03:39, 8 October 2015 (UTC)


Why did you create a redirect for "Dancie"? I can't see any obvious reason from a look at Diancie's page... Tiddlywinks (talk) 19:59, 28 October 2015 (UTC)

Because of this. It's a "just in case" thing. SatoMew2 (talk) 20:17, 28 October 2015 (UTC)

Deleting redirects

When you find a miscapitalized redirect, you probably don't want to just change the redirect to the delete template. In particular, if someone might lazily search the term in all lowercase and hit that redirect/page, we'd really rather they're not stuck on a page that just says "Delete me"; it's much better if it can continue to function as a redirect until it's properly deleted. (And to a lesser extent, this also applies to any mix of capitalization.) My solution is usually to just put the delete template on the talk page; this has worked fine in the past for me.

Also, I think if you put something like "delete" in the edit comment, it might catch staff's attention quicker. Tiddlywinks (talk) 13:13, 2 November 2015 (UTC)
