Please familiarize yourself with the page move policy and obey it in the future. Thank you. Kerochan no Miko 21:02, 16 November 2007 (MST)

Thanks for following the page move policy with Sailor Moon flowers - but please note that when you move the page, you are also responsible to fix all the articles linking to it as well. Kerochan no Miko 15:27, 3 December 2007 (MST)

I've noticed that your edit notes for the NA songs say that you're transcribing the lyrics yourself - just as an FYI, it's only translations that have to be your own work &c. For the actual lyrics it's fine to get them from CD inserts or something (and probably preferable, since it's easy to mis-hear lyrics). Kerochan no Miko 03:00, 8 December 2007 (MST)

I didn't say to take lyrics from websites, but rather from official sources. For example, when I added lyrics to the other NA songs, I copied them from the CD insert. I prefer not to have anything on the article than to have incorrect information, personally. Kerochan no Miko 05:10, 8 December 2007 (MST)

The rules on external links are here. Kerochan no Miko 17:28, 8 December 2007 (MST)

The point of the policy is so that the focus of the article is on the information, not to advertise websites. The note you added about the review of the song on Peppermint Storm read very much like the latter, which is why I removed it. What we're trying to get is neutral, factual information, not personal opinions and reviews. Kerochan no Miko 17:39, 8 December 2007 (MST)

Some clarification, just FYI - the point of the page move policy is so we don't get someone wandering in and deciding that something is all wrong and just randomly moving it to suit how they want it to be. There have been a couple of debacles like that in the past, where a new user declared that they knew better and an article's title was all wrong, and without bothering to find out why it was the way it was, they just up and moved it and made a mess. With the kaiteban/kaiteiban thing, you'd just barely made it, it was obviously misspelled, it was all good. The policy is there to prevent, say, someone dropping by the site and moving "Haruka Tenou" to "Haruka Ten'ou" (which has happened). Kerochan no Miko 03:56, 15 December 2007 (MST)


Malkinann, please stop trying to do an end run around me. The point here is to present factual information and allow the reader to form their own opinions, not to link to the opinions of whoever out there happens to have a website. And when I remove links because they're only reviews and I see no academic merit in them, and you just re-add them slightly re-worded in an attempt to worm around that, it's more than a little aggravating.

I was basically getting the impression that you're trying to find a sneaky way to work around the rules in order to do whatever you want. I've told you before about not using opinions and reviews, and yet you keep adding them. You do good work and I value your contributions, but it's frustrating that you keep trying to treat this like Wikipedia or something when it isn't.
As for the Prince Uranus analogy. That article is about a fan rumor, and therefore fan opinions/reaction/backlash has to be part of the article. This is about a DVD. The two are not the same in any way. Here we need facts about the DVD, not what ANN thought about said DVD, not what SMU thought about said DVD, about the DVD itself. I really don't see why we need to note that Dan from SMU thought the cases were the greatest he had ever seen, because, well, how is Dan's experience somehow more valid than the experiences of the thousands of other people who bought the DVD? We can't include everyone, so why should we pick and choose?
And "dishonesty" - you can get the fact that the DVD only has mono from a multitude of sources. One of which is owning the DVD itself and listening to it, but would you really need to footnote that to "Self, experience of"? I don't think so. I personally think it's sloppy research to just take for granted what Person Y said about the DVD on their website without trying to verify that from other sources.
