About this wiki[edit]

I'm happy that BPoHC is getting support and translations, but i'm worried about EMS and RMI. Also, please someone get the image for EX Lumen. --SakuraMiya (talk) 15:22, 6 June 2015 (UTC)

It's nice to hear that you're happy about BPoHC; I feel same about EMS and RMI though. Unfortunately, I don't know how to extract images from any of the Len'en game; I hope someone can come and do that. ― Tony64 (Talk/Con.) 16:20, 6 June 2015 (UTC)

I couldn't help but notice the slew of changes to the gameplay pages, and it got me wondering: what exactly is the purpose of the "lang|ja" and "nihongo" tags, anyway? And what's the difference between the two? --Popfan (talk) 10:37, 1 July 2015 (UTC)

The "lang" tag simply states that a line of text belongs to a certain language, the 'ja' can change to 'zh' to make the text belong to Chinese, for example. The 'nihongo' tag is a bit more complex, it helps to standardise the entries for Japanese terms. So instead of writing '''Humans''' ({{lang|ja|人間}} ''ningen''), write {{nihongo|'''Humans'''|人間|ningen}}. The template also has 'lang' inside it. I've made use of 'lang' more often in the gameplay pages to have Japanese first, then English in brackets, not the other way round as you'd see in 'nihongo' tags. ― Tony64 (Talk/Con.) 11:05, 1 July 2015 (UTC)

Say, how does one protect a page (or section of a page) from being edited? I kinda want to lock the questions section of the JynX interview page as soon as the deadline has passed. --Popfan (talk) 13:05, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

According to this, there should be a tab "Protect" somewhere at the top of the page. Necrotek (talk) 14:59, 29 July 2015 (UTC)
He's right. At the top, you ought to see a tab called 'Move'. Hover over that, and you ought to see 'Protect'. Once you're taken to that link, things should be self-explanatory there :) it's best to choose 'Allow only administrators' for full protection. You cannot protect sections of a page, but even if a page is protected, admins, bureaucrats and stewards can still edit. ― Tony64 (Talk/Con.) 15:04, 29 July 2015 (UTC)
Oh hey, there it is. Why does this kind of stuff always have to be tucked away where you wouldn't even think of looking? >_> ...Ah well, thanks for pointing it out to me, guys. --Popfan (talk) 22:10, 29 July 2015 (UTC)
Ahah, I meant 'More'... typo. ― Tony64 (Talk/Con.) 11:16, 30 July 2015 (UTC)

More locations[edit]

I was thinking that the Unlost Woods, Shrine Road and Gloomy Straits deserve an article now, being expanded as more games are relased, specially in BPoHC. --SakuraMiya (talk) 23:36, 12 June 2015 (UTC)

I've created stub articles for the three links. Everything Len'en-related deserves an article :) As you may know, there are red links on the Len'en navbox that each awaits to be created. ― Tony64 (Talk/Con.) 00:10, 13 June 2015 (UTC)

Permissions issue[edit]

I was busy adding the missing difficulties to the Extra spell card pages (right now, RMI) and moving the images to the proper places, but I was not able to move RMISC163.jpg over to RMISC174.jpg. I was denied permission to do so, since there is an existing redirect there. Additionally, there are also a number of redirects for images I have previously moved in the way.

Is it possible that these redirect can be deleted, or could I possibly receive permission to do all of this myself? Auralis (talk) 16:47, 15 June 2015 (UTC)

I've deleted all the re-directs that you've created when moving images, so now you should be able to move images into these deleted file locations.
I could allow you to become an administrator of the wiki if you wish to do the jobs such as this yourself in the future, but there needs to be good faith that you'll use this level of access responsibly. Since your contributions to this wiki are great however, I guess I can trust you to be an admin. :) Do you want administrative rights? Please reply if you're interested. ― Tony64 (Talk/Con.) 17:20, 15 June 2015 (UTC)
That's a pretty big offer, but sure! That'd be wonderful. It'd be a lot more convenient for me personally, since I do quite a bit of heavy editing. I've got more than a few projects at the moment, but I intend to make the Len'en Wiki one of them.
Thank you! Auralis (talk) 19:33, 15 June 2015 (UTC)
Your account has been upgraded to "Administrator". I recommend you have a look at this so you can get an idea on what an admin can do. Happy edits :) ― Tony64 (Talk/Con.) 20:02, 15 June 2015 (UTC)

Le-crap[edit]

I've been working on a project called le-crap. One of the original goals was to make a program that would read translations directly from the wiki page. And it succeeded.... somewhat. There were problems with how the current translations were formatted, such as not fitting into the dialogue box and using gender neutral pronouns some people might not understand. Some of the parts with a single cell (such as the whole "stage x" thing) were also confusing the system. As such, I'd like to start a new section (either under story or gameplay) that would be devoted to a separate set of translations to be used in game. Yoshiquest (talk) 19:56, 26 June 2015 (UTC)

I see. I'm actually happy that the translations on this wiki can be used for external projects. As such, I'll allow you to create pages that are specifically for your project as a way for improvement. As the pronoun poll is still going on, you don't have to worry about which neutral pronoun to use for the time being (although the 'xe' form is currently used). Just make sure to indicate that the sub-pages are for le-crap :) ― Tony64 (Talk/Con.) 20:58, 26 June 2015 (UTC)

Interview idea[edit]

So I've just had the idea to collect questions from the users of the Len'en wiki (as well as the members on the Len'en dA group) to direct towards JynX for various reasons. That said, I wouldn't really know where on the wiki to take questions. I feel like they should get their own page, so maybe I could use the discussion page for JynX's wiki entry. What do you think about it? --Popfan (talk) 16:17, 5 July 2015 (UTC)

So, you want there to be a page for people to place questions they want JynX to answer? I like that idea a lot. We can use an actual page rather than a talk page, such as 'Len'en Wiki:Interview with JynX (2015)'. Either way, go and do what you want regarding this, and I'll be in support (I even got one or two questions I like answering :) ― Tony64 (Talk/Con.) 17:52, 5 July 2015 (UTC)
First things first, I obviously need JynX's consent. I did send him a tweet with the idea earlier, but he had already been online today, so it might take a few days before I get a reply. I won't start taking questions until he's OK with it so as to not get everyone's hopes up. Then again, it's already a bit late for that... --Popfan (talk) 21:10, 5 July 2015 (UTC)
I see. Well, take your time, and let me know when things are cushty :) ― Tony64 (Talk/Con.) 22:26, 5 July 2015 (UTC)
OK, JynX says he's fine with being interviewed. I'm now creating the page... --Popfan (talk) 21:28, 6 July 2015 (UTC)
Page created! If you could categorize it and stuff, that would be greatly appreciated. --Popfan (talk) 21:56, 6 July 2015 (UTC)
Thankyou Popfan. :) I'll get around to doing some of that eventually. I'll add this to the news section and MediaWiki:Sitenotice first :) ― Tony64 (Talk/Con.) 22:05, 6 July 2015 (UTC)

Recently, JynX sent me a tweet saying that he was nearly done with the interview questions. He did, however, inquire as to whether or not it's possible for us to embed images into the Q&A page. I assumed that we can make it work somehow, so I said yes (especially considering one of the questions was about concept art for Yabusame and Tsubakura), but I'd like to ask if you have any ideas on how to make it work within the wiki. As far as I know, you can put images only to the right end of a page, but it would be helpful if we could put them within a table cell. Then again, if all else fails, we can just use hyperlinks. What do you think? --Popfan (talk) 14:27, 16 August 2015 (UTC)

That's a very interesting question, because I've never came across in putting multiple images with Template:TranslateTable, in the sense of having the image directly next to its related text. I'm probably just as clueless as you are on how we can work around this. We could try and make it work by putting the images inside the cells after the text. Or, we just merely place the images separate on the right as shown on most translation pages, and make an indication in the image's footer as to which question it's related to (e.g. "Image related to Q10."). I would guess that this approach is similar to the one here. Since that template was taken directly from the Touhou wiki, and the code for that looks too complex, I can't really modify it...
However, I could also go and create a new, more simpler translation table template that's exclusively used for the Q&A page that can easily have images next to their respective answers. In fact, I'll get right on it. If you happen to get the answers back and I'm not finished with the template, then use which method you'd like. Cheers :) ― Tony64 (Talk/Con.) 15:55, 16 August 2015 (UTC)

Random shish[edit]

Do you have a dA account or somewhere else where you could be contacted privately? There's something I wanna talk to you about, but those user talk pages are too out-in-the-open for that kinda stuff. --Popfan (talk) 22:01, 9 July 2015 (UTC)

Ah yes, you could e-mail me to 'tonyuk64@hotmail.com'. I don't have a dA account because I don't tend to want to be part of the fanbases that are there (I do look at some fanart there though :) Same reason with shrinemaiden.org. ― Tony64 (Talk/Con.) 22:13, 9 July 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for the info (96.4.175.190 was Senri by the way)[edit]

Oh, thanks for info about the spell card link. This is just a thank you message from an idiot who can't even comprehend the basic rules of this wiki. A worthless child who only puts down repetitive links. Thanks for pointing out my stupidity~ Have you seen my translations on Touhou Wiki by the way? I still need someone to check them and call me an idiot further~ Senri (Aka Sukuna) 01:06, 10 February 2016 (US. Time)

Eh? ._. ― Tony64 (Talk/Con.) 08:50, 10 February 2016 (UTC)
I'm sorry. I regret even making that post. When I first typed that, my self esteem was at it's lowest. Compared to you, I'm relatively new in this business. I'm sorry....I'm so sorry. Please don't be mad at me. Senri (aka Sukuna) 9:37, 11 February 2016 (UTC)
Geez, dude. Don't put yourself down so hard over an honest mistake. You screwed up and owned up to it. Why would anyone be mad at you for doing that? Chin up - just forget this ever happened, okay? --Popfan (talk) 13:01, 12 February 2016 (UTC)
Same thing as Popfan said, I'm not mad, never have been. I was just confused why you posted that comment. But yeah, forget about it and just carry on as normal :) ― Tony64 (Talk/Con.) 23:38, 12 February 2016 (UTC)

Interwiki Forwarding[edit]

Pay attention, please Talk:Len'en Wiki --UnKnwn (talk) 08:13, 10 July 2016 (UTC)

Portrait Consistency[edit]

I feel as we've gotta decide which portrait we will keep for the BPoHC playables on their main template. For instance, Yabusame has their boss portrait whereas Aoji has their player one. I think we should either make all the main portraits for playables the Boss ones (so in the end, every BPoHC character is displayed with their boss portrait, and the player portraits would go below in the text describing where they appear in BPoHC) or, conversely, use the Player ones to distinguish them from the simple boss ones.

Not sure if that's understandable, but hope you get my point of view. For better organizing, and stuff. Rando (talk) 11:45, 14 January 2017 (UTC)

Aha, I see what what you mean, although the standard idea is that we show the latest portrait of a character, so Yabu's boss portrait wasn't in the demo, but it was in the full. Same with Aoji's playable portrait. That's the idea anyway though, but I'm flexible with it being re-organised, and if it was to change, I'd say make all playable ones use the playable portrait. ― Tony64 (Talk/Con.)
Ooh, I see. Yeah, I get your point of view now. But yeah, I guess there's no harm in using one or the other method, in the end. ^^" Rando (talk) 10:27, 15 January 2017 (UTC)

Spammers[edit]

I think they may be bots. Adding some sort of extra layer like CAPTCHAS would probably help against them. — Preceding unsigned comment added by ‎176.11.93.51 (talk) 14:47, 5 March 2017 (UTC)

Ayy, I'm aware that they're bot spammers. Recently they've stopped spamming as we speak. But yeah, I should deeply consider adding some form of Captcha for anonymous edits to stop the spamming. ― Tony64 (Talk/Con.) 15:16, 5 March 2017 (UTC)

Images[edit]

I want to ask something before continuing, as I just realized it. Is it forbidden to upload images with translated spellcard names? --Ken x (talk) 15:49, 12 May 2017 (UTC)

Regarding images... I am slowly uploading those myself because i handle collection things~... You don't need to get your ones, also according to changelog, you replaced some valid ones... And yes, it is forbidden to upload english ones. --Freddy-Bad-Add [The True Haiji] (talk) 16:37, 12 May 2017 (UTC)
Hi~ So yeah, pretty much what Freddy said here. He has taken the job of providing the wiki with spell card images. We have a guideline about this if you're still interested. Thank you for asking the question :) ― Tony64 (Talk/Con.) 16:46, 12 May 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for the reply. Dunno how I missed that. --Ken x (talk) 02:48, 13 May 2017 (UTC)

Fools rush in[edit]

I know what you're thinking, and I'm asking you not to. No, we should not make a page for FRI on the wiki. This is the Len'en Wiki, and FRI is a Touhou fangame. I don't know if you noticed, but JynX's Touhou albums don't have pages on this wiki, either. Rather, the links go to their respective (albeit nonexistent) pages on the Touhou wiki. The day we cover anything on this wiki more Touhou-related than Red-White and White-Black is the day I'm eating an oversized top hat. ――Popfan (talk/contribs) 20:31, 18 June 2017 (UTC)

I'm personally conflicted with this pop. At first I thought it'd be okay to make a page, but seeing other people's opinions, maybe it's not such a good idea after all. On the one hand it was made by JynX and it shares the same engine with Len'en, but on the other like you said, it's a non-Len'en fangame. I mean, I don't fully oppose hosting it, but I'm fine with not going through with it as well. With this brought up though, we should consider writing a new policy about Touhou on this wiki. ― Tony64 (Talk/Con.) 22:00, 18 June 2017 (UTC)
How about this for a policy, then: No Touhou content whatsoever. There's none on this wiki yet, nor is there any point in starting now. There's simply no need to document content directly related to Touhou somewhere other than the Touhou Wiki, no matter how shoddily-managed you think that place is. ――Popfan (talk/contribs) 02:31, 19 June 2017 (UTC)
Also, before I see the whole "but muh Seihou" argument brought up again: Seihou does not have its own wiki. Believe me, I just did a Google search and all the top results were Seihou-related articles on the Touhou wiki. Touhou does have its own wiki, and a pretty large one at that, not to mention it does document Touhou fangames as well as official works, so there is no. Reason. Whatsoever. To give FRI any more than a fleeting mention in the list of things JynX has created. It says something if we wouldn't even be having this discussion if the game had been made by literally anyone else. ――Popfan (talk/contribs) 03:31, 19 June 2017 (UTC)
That's all fine and dandy, believe me. You have valid points on all this, so yeah... there's no need to dwell on this no longer. I saw you've made a page on the Touhou Wiki, so that's all good. ― Tony64 (Talk/Con.) 19:29, 22 June 2017 (UTC)

Will there be a JynX interview this year?[edit]

Sorry I’m new here, so is there going to be one? It’s okay if there isn’t, btw I love you profile! 💖
