Er...do we really need kanji for an American group that doesn't use it for their name? I know they're borrowing "Nihon" from the Japanese, but they aren't spelling it that way that I've seen... Kerochan no Miko 00:30, 29 January 2007 (MST)

Ok, I'll twist it a bit. --210 01:02, 29 January 2007 (MST)

Don't assume people know what you're talking about in write-ups on fandom. I don't know what the "infamous" mistake in Act 24 is.--WikiSysop 03:22, 29 January 2007 (MST)

But she's linked it to the episode page's trivia section, where that mistake is described, hasn't she? (Not having watched any PGSM subs (except clips in MVs), I might not be in a position to comment about this, tho.) --210 05:05, 29 January 2007 (MST)
It's a problem of wording, which I'm really anal about in the fandom articles because they can easily get biased. The word I'm picking on here is "infamous"- was it really that big of an event or did it just ruffle the feathers of a few fans back in 2004?--WikiSysop 07:40, 29 January 2007 (MST)
I referred to it as "infamous" because it caused a lot of misunderstandings about Dark Mercury and Nephrite's conversation, and people are still confused about it. Any suggestions for rephrasing? Kerochan no Miko 09:54, 29 January 2007 (MST)
To keep the tone neutral, how is this: "(e.g. a controversial mistake in Act 24)"--WikiSysop 10:46, 29 January 2007 (MST)
Is that better? Kerochan no Miko 14:05, 29 January 2007 (MST)
I'm only being nitpicky because it's you, Kero, but well-publicized? Doesn't that infer it was published somewhere? Maybe it's because I don't remember this but doesn't the incident come down to a bunch of people at newsgroups and discussion forums being confused? Perhaps the best word to be used would be notable.--WikiSysop 01:28, 30 January 2007 (MST)
It was well-publicized on said newsgroups and discussion forums, but the translation error confused fandom in general (since a fairly large percentage of people who watched PGSM outside of Japan) watched it via TV-N's subs, from what I can tell). I think "notable" works. Kerochan no Miko 15:26, 30 January 2007 (MST)
