User talk:Kerochan no Miko
PLEASE NOTE: I cannot grant permission for new users to create articles or to not encounter captchas. Those are things set up to be automatically handled by the wiki once new users have met certain criteria, a measure made necessary because of issues we've had in the past with an abundance of spammers/bots. I can/will not go around it.
Also, please do not comment on my talk page about specific articles or edits - those discussions should take place on the talk pages for the articles in question. Thank you!
Can I make a page for a Greek group of fandubbers named WoD? (Wings of Destiny). I have seen there are a few pages for fandub groups. This group made a Greek fandub for Specials and Movies in Greece and some episodes of Sailor Moon Crystal.

ArisGamer2000 (talk) 10:12, December 28, 2020 (EST) I meant Wikimoon does not let me edit the wikimoon web section of the site. Also, happy new year!!!! ArisGamer2000 (talk) 16:54, January 01, 2021 (EST) I mean that when I tap the button edit a message bumps saying: "Only admins have permission to edit this page" ArisGamer2000 (talk) 23:45, January 01, 2021 (EST)
The CAPTCHAs are confusing
They frequently ask things like "who is the guardian of Venus?" What does it want there? Sailor Venus? Or her civilian name Minako, or her full name Minako Aino? Nothing ever seems to work. 18.104.22.168 21:25, 9 March 2021 (EST)
- Yeah. And if you make a user account then you don't have to deal with captchas. Kerochan no Miko (talk) 22:32, 9 March 2021 (EST)
I've added a summary for Sailor Moon SuperS
Tell me what you think. I know it's missing some details, but I'll try to fill those in later. 22.214.171.124 22:11, 12 March 2021 (EST)
Use of gairaigo in Sailor Moon
One thing that has never been noted in any anime wiki that I've seen is the Japanese concept of "garaigo" which literally means "foreign language words." I'm sure by the context you can infer that this means the use of foreign words in Japanese. What's not well known however, is that the use of gairaigo involves reconstructing the foreign words with Japanese phonemes that can be written in katakana. I put this note in a talk page https://wikimoon.org/index.php/Talk:Jupiter,_the_Brawny_Girl_in_Love#A_gag_in_the_episode_that_needs_clarification but I don't think that such a long, detailed explanation of gairaigo is appropriate in the article itself. Instead, I was thinking of just making a short note that reads like "When Sailor Jupiter performs Supreme Thunder for the first time, Sailor Moon mishears it as "Chou Cream Sundae" (Shū kurīmu sandē) because the garaigo pronunciation of "Supreme Thunder" (Shūpurīmu sandā) is phonetically similar. Since most people who speak English can't read Japanese Katakana, I would use the romanization so that it would be sufficiently clarified. 126.96.36.199 17:23, 13 March 2021 (EST)
Signs of progress
Despite some arguments, Sailor Moon R, S, and SuperS finally have summaries, now properly brief instead of ridiculously long, and you've updated the episode infobox template to say "First English Dub Episode" instead of "English Dub Episode," acknowledging that the new dub exists. This is great. There are still some requests I'm waiting for your response to on various talk pages. 188.8.131.52 22:16, 13 March 2021 (EST)
- Yes, I do listen to suggestions when they're made, just as I have done since this wiki started fifteen years ago. This is not an unusual thing, and I'm not sure why you're treating it as such. Kerochan no Miko (talk) 00:11, 14 March 2021 (EST)
- What you said here definitely gave that impression. I also got the impression that you were belittling me telling me I was stupid for caring about something like that, as if I'd be the only one who would want this or that the issue is not important otherwise. Interactions like this gave me the impression that you were stubborn and not open to listening to suggestions of other editors. You did finally update the template to say "First English dub," but you were being stubborn about it and I felt like I was plowing concrete. When you say "I'm not sure why you're treating it as such," this is why. You may not be doing this on purpose, you might just not be aware of how your words and actions are being perceived by others. 184.108.40.206 14:08, 14 March 2021 (EDT)
