About SilSinn[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Silent Sinner in Scarlet[edit]

From his/her YouTube profile:

  • Sinner: we are all sinners.
  • Silent: not all sins can be publicly discussed.
  • Scarlet: the blood of some Holy one crucified in Rome nearly 2000 years ago… the ONLY blood that can cleanse each/​every sin in the world — even the silent ones.

The name Silent Sinner in Scarlet may look like a parody of Silent Sinner in Blue (replacing Blue with Scarlet, which also happens to be the surname of two famous sisters), but this is pure coincidence.

SilSinn9801[edit]

  • Sil: abbreviation of “Silent”.
  • Sinn: abbreviation of “Sinner”.
  • 9801: refers to a long-storied family of computers made by Japanese firm NEC and sold in Japan from the early 1980’s well into 2003: the PC-9801 series. The music compiled by Silent Sinner in Scarlet (abbreviated as SilSinn) resembles the kind of background music played by ancient video games made for the PC-9801 computers, including the first five Tōhō Project titles.

Musical background[edit]

Silent Sinner in Scarlet was inspired by the original musical works by Japanese video-game composers Nobuo Uematsu (of Final Fantasy fame), Revo (of Bravely Default fame), & ZUN, as well as Japanese anime composer Tatsuo Takai (who made the Astro Boy title theme).

Currently, he/she is composing/​arranging/​remixing music based on the Yamaha OPNA FM-synthesizer soundchip. A 1:15-minute demo of his/her first single can be listened to in his/her YouTube channel; the full nearly-10-minute-long version can be found on various music-streaming platforms and apps (free and non-free) which will not be linked here so as to avoid making this section appear as free advertisement (and comply with this wiki’s anti-spam policies).

Interests outside music[edit]

SilSinn is a casual video gamer (the Nintendo 3DS is his/her preferred platform) and has an interest in researching multilingual features of some role-playing video games, often contributing to their respective wiki encyclopedia projects. Two examples are Bulbapedia (the oldest and most comprehensive Pokémon encyclopedia) and the Final Fantasy Wiki (one of the few serious encyclopedias still hosted on Wikia, in spite of all of its controversies after its absorption by FANDOM). He/she also enjoys slowly growing Wikipedia’s encyclopedic content (as SilSinn9821), especially with regards to tropical cyclones and radio/TV broadcasting.

Favorite Phrases[edit]

  • “I will remain silent on that question.”
  • “Thankee!”

Preferred Tools[edit]

  • KAJA’s PMD98 music compiler MC.EXE
  • C60’s FMPMD2000 music emulator
  • CyberLink PowerDirector 15

Signature[edit]

‐⁠‑Silent Sinner in Scarlet (SilSinn9801)⁠💬

A well-constructed wikicode signature making smart use of Unicode characters seldom used by ordinary users, including one emoji pictogram:

  • Unambiguous regular hyphen (U+2010) at the beginning to prevent the signature from dragging any preceding word to the next line in case the signature doesn’t fit in the current line and the user forgets to type a normal space before appending the signature.
  • Non-breaking hyphen (NBHY, U+2011) that will always stay in the same line as the rest of the signature in case of a line break.
  • Four non-breaking spaces (NBSP, U+00A0) strategically placed across the signature to ensure it remains within a single line (rather than breaking from one line to another).
  • The emoji for SPEECH BALLOON (U+1F4AC), serving as a link to the user’s talk page.
  • Two word joiners (WJ, U+2060), which are essentially zero-width non-breaking spaces that ensure that no line breaks occur between ① the regular HYPHEN & the NON-BREAKING HYPHEN or ② between the username (actually a link to the user’s contributions page; the link to this userpage is the red bold-italic artist name) and the SPEECH BALLOON.

Interests on Touhou Wiki (or Tōhō Wiki, if using Hepburnian macrons)[edit]

Character profiles[edit]

SilSinn9801 made contributions to a few character articles:

He/she is pissed off at Yen Press because of its questionable translation practices on the English version of Forbidden Scrollery, like ① translating miko (巫女) to “shrine priest” (a predominantly “masculine” noun; “shrine priestess” or “shrine maiden” would have been more appropriate because they are exclusively feminine) and ② calling Hieda no Akyū (稗田 阿求) “Akyu Hiedano” (when “Akyū of Hieda” or “Akyuu of Hieda” would have been technically more correct).

Templates[edit]
