Hi miss transforming tanuki, do you have any idea of anybody who could help me out with [[Talk:Touhou_Pocket_Wars_2nd#1.05_patch_.28Prismriver_sisters.29_and_English_patch|this patch compatibility problem]] or [[Talk:Touhou_Pocket_Wars_2nd#General_TPW2_wiki_updates|these TPW2 wiki issues]]? If not, is there any helpful information you could provide me with?

Hey! I once created a page called "Fantasy Ruins". You deleted it because it was an unnecessary article. Now I know what to do with it! I have a "Touhou Nonsense Wiki". Give me the source for the Fantasy Ruins article, and I'll add it onto my wiki.

== German Touhou Wiki ==
 
 
 
Hey Mamizou!
 
My Name is Arebs and i'm from the German Touhou Forum.
 
I got some Question about the German Wiki, but because I have not found a contact for the German Wiki I need to ask someone here.
 
 
 
Currently, I'm the Administrator of the German Touhou Forum. Many of the old Members, which try to make Touhou popular in Germanys have fallen out, because the most of them were stubborn and had different ideas, which do not fit together.
 
We, I and my team from the Touhou Forum, want to try that what the others have not done: make Touhou finally popular here in Germany. We have worked out a plan which contains a Rework of the German Wiki. First, I try to login with my old Account. But it was gone. Therefore I've made a new account here. But now I have another problem: We don't know anything about the owner of the German Wiki. Is the Wiki in your Hands? And if yes, is it possible to get a new local Administrator for the German wiki?
 
 
 
Thanks in advance and Greetings
 
Arebs
 
 
 
P.S I hope you can read my English, it's not the best xD
 
 
 
:Your English is just fine!  Anyway:
 
 
 
:* If you know your old account I can merge your new one with your old one and get everything working again.
 
:* Yep the German wiki is still hosted with us, but there's no one 'owning' it, no current admins or bureaucrats or anything.
 
:* No one's touched the old German wiki in forever and I'd love to see it active again.  If you'd like someone set as admin/bureaucrat of it let me know.
 
 
 
:Let me know what I can do to help!  [[User:Mamizou|Mamizou]] ([[User talk:Mamizou|talk]]) 09:16, 9 August 2014 (UTC)
 
 
 
:: Thanks for your answer and for your help! 
 
:: My old Account got the same Name  like the new too, Arebs, if you can merge them it would be great.
 
:: If you can set me as a local bureaucrat I can handle the other things for the German wiki. If I need to do something, to get your trust, just tell it to me.
 
:: --[[User:Arebs|Arebs]] ([[User talk:Arebs|talk]]) 10:05, 9 August 2014 (UTC)
 
:::I assume you registered on the German wiki when it was stand-alone for awhile; the user accounts on that weren't merged in with the mainline Touhou Wiki database.  Anyway, I've promoted you to Bureaucrat of the German wiki;  please check out the [[Help:Group_rights|Group rights]] article for more info on what's required of staff members.  Thanks and good luck!  [[User:Mamizou|Mamizou]] ([[User talk:Mamizou|talk]]) 17:23, 9 August 2014 (UTC)
 
 
 
==I require password assistance...==
 
Hey, Mamizou-san? I can't seem to use the "Find my password" for my actual account and I can't edit on this one yet apart from this message, can you please reset my original password?? --[[User:HijirinMyourenBackup]]
 
:Wait a sec, ignore that! I managed to get back in. Sorry for the pesterage, Mamizou-san! [[User:HijirinMyouren]]
 
 
 
==That special English interview==
 
Hello, have you received my IRC message regarding the special case of an English interview with ZUN? I hope we can discuss it further using email or MotK PM!
 
[[User:Cuc]]
 
:Why don't you just add the transcription yourself?  There are already [[ZUN#ZUN_Speaks|other interviews]] available, they should be a good guide for the format to follow.  Keep in mind all edits to the wiki are under the CC-BY-SA license.  Also I don't talk on MoTK.  [[User:Mamizou|Mamizou]] ([[User talk:Mamizou|talk]]) 00:46, 21 September 2014 (UTC)
 
::Problem is that the author requires us to attach a link to the book's Amazon page, turning the interview into an ad, which is unprecedented, so I requested your approval. The interview is of course not CC license. I'm considering posting it on MotK, and link to it from the wiki, since there are precedents for that.[[User:Cuc]]
 
:::Well, I personally don't see a problem if you're borrowing any external source and referencing it. Also, the requirement to attach a link to the book's webpage is conditional permission. I would just link to it via hyperlink or similar as to where the reference was copied or drawn from. See [[ZUN's AWA Q&A Panel]]. So something like "This transcript is adapted from "name of book + hyperlink."
 
:::Additional note: Many references on Wikipedia itself are drawn from scientific journals that require a subscription. Free sources are desired whenever possible, yes, but if necessary other helpful sources of information ought to be considered. [[User:Kiefmaster99|- Kiefmaster99]] ([[User talk:Kiefmaster99|talk]]) 15:09, 21 September 2014 (UTC)
 
::::Linking to store pages is allowed too. I think I've figured out how to present the interview. Thanks![[User:Cuc]]
 
 
 
==Cirno Chiru would like to take over the German Touhou wiki==
 
:As the title already says, i would like to take over the german version of touhouwiki.
 
:I'll try to translate and edit much and fit it to the current style of the english version, the german version of it looks yeah... more like the touhouwikia somehow.
 
:That's why i would like to ask if i can join the team? *smiles*
 
:Currently i'm working on Sukuna and Wakasagihime in the german wiki, if you like to look at these, I translate them directly from english to german.
 
:Actually i have also another question, thats because of the character info boxes on the german wiki, maybe it should get a update, since they fall out of the raster. - [[User:Cirno_Chiru]]
 
::Hi; I've promoted you to Admin/CU.  After a probationary period I'll promote you to Bureaucrat.  Just FYI, bureaucrats are required to idle on the Touhou Wiki IRC channel, in case something happens and real-time communication is required.  Admins are not required to, but are recommended to do so.  Let me know if you have any issues; thanks for helping and good luck!  :3  [[User:Mamizou|Mamizou]] ([[User talk:Mamizou|talk]]) 23:30, 28 December 2014 (UTC)
 
:::I just realized, [[:de:Benutzer:Arebs|Arebs]] requested bureaucratship of the German wiki.  I'd like you both to be admins until you both can coordinate who'd be what.  Thanks.  [[User:Mamizou|Mamizou]] ([[User talk:Mamizou|talk]]) 23:38, 28 December 2014 (UTC)
 
:::: I´m thinking that we can share it together, since its a lot of work and a wide spreading area. But what about that Character Infobox layout? ^_^ Thank you for the trust and promotion in regards, i hope we work well together :)  - [[User:Cirno_Chiru]]
 
 
 
== Guess what's back up ==
 
 
 
[[Fantasy Ruins]]
 
 
 
That is all. I said "this is Chiyuri's idea, will grant a wish" and that's it. No digital assistant with online media as the original article said. Give me a fantastic prize! [[User:JustAMiko|JustAMiko]] ([[User talk:JustAMiko|talk]]) 23:24, 4 January 2015 (UTC)
 
 
 
== About Len'en ==
 
 
 
Hi Mamizou :) There are a few things I'd like to ask about Len'en stuff. Firstly, is it possible to add the new Len'en Wiki "http://lenen.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Len%27en_Wiki" to the interwiki table under the prefix 'lenen'? Now that this wiki is slowly coming together, it'll be great to have this wiki linking to it officially. Now secondly, what about the Len'en content on this wiki? Of course, everyone doesn't want the content on this wiki, safe for [[Len'en Project]] itself and its games, so they'll need to be deleted ASAP. I've noticed already that all the character-related articles are up for deletion; are all sub-pages to game articles and most of Len'en images (such as spell cards and character images) also up for deletion? If you or others are busy and can't delete them or something like that, I don't mind going through them and deleting them if that's the case.
 
 
 
Also, I should say this while I'm at it: in case you're wondering about my view on [[Talk:Touhou Wiki#Lenen series character pages|this issue that time]], I only did what I though would be best for other people who wanted to find Len'en content at the right place; I knew I couldn't continue my argument any longer as it was distressing even for me to go into deeper details to find support for Len'en, so I didn't reply to further comments and let things take its course. I tend to do that though, try and be as thorough as possible. Thanks the new wiki though, I've grown a lot to the idea and now think this was the best root after all. I hope that's understandable (funny how I change my point of view...^^;). Anyway, any reply will be appreciated regarding my two comments above, thank you :) {{User:Tony64/Sig}} 01:46, 29 May 2015 (UTC)
 
 
 
== Reporting user for edit warring ==
 
 
 
Reporting user Nintenchris5963 ([[User_talk:Nintenchris5963|talk]]) for [[Special:Contributions/Nintenchris5963|repeated edit warring]] and generally [http://en.touhouwiki.net/index.php?title=User_talk:Tony64&oldid=339071#Seriously.3F_Just_leave_it_alone. throwing a tantrum] over said edit warring despite there being a talk page ([[Talk:Urban_Legend_in_Limbo/Characters]]) for this issue in which everyone seems to be in agreement against his choice in terms. As I mentioned on his own page, he has seen the ULiL/Chars talk page, but inexplicably avoids discussing it in favor of just pushing through his own edits and reverting others' whenever possible. This is reminiscent of similar behaviour he's done in the past (as I show in the ULiL/Chars talk), which you have given him a warning for before.

== I couldn't help it ==
 
The edit war was stopped a few days ago, and Tony64 was the one continuing the edit war just now. Sure I'm trying to change the way I liked, but I couldn't help myself from doing so. [[User:Nintenchris5963|Nintenchris5963]] ([[User talk:Nintenchris5963|talk]])

:Done.  [[User:Mamizou|Mamizou]] ([[User talk:Mamizou|talk]]) 02:13, 17 July 2015 (UTC)

== Talk:Urban Legend in Limbo/Characters ==
 
 
 
I chose to stop the edit war and start discussing on the talk page, but people don't want me to discuss and I'm already feeling like I'm a total jerk for all eternity. I'm starting to act nice and not throwing a tantrum on people, but they kept talking about the past. Can you please do something about those people?

Let me ask you another request. I hope to add the "동방위키:" (東方 + Wiki in Korean language) as the value of $wgSitename ("Touhou Wiki:" as namespace) in php setting, like the "东方维基:" in Chinese Touhou Wiki. Will it be possible? Thanks. --[[User:Garam|Garam]] ([[User talk:Garam|talk]]) 11:06, 15 February 2016 (UTC)
 
:That'll be nice, but there's one thing I want to say: I think it should be "동방 위키" or "동방 프로젝트 위키", for the sake of spacing. [[User:Mario1star|Mario1star]] ([[User talk:Mario1star|talk]]) 12:09, 15 February 2016 (UTC)

::But, [[:mw:Sites using MediaWiki/ko|many korean language wiki using MediaWiki]] (and [[:w:ko:한국어 위키위키|many Korean language wiki using other wiki software]]) isn't space out in words. Thanks. --[[User:Garam|Garam]] ([[User talk:Garam|talk]]) 13:49, 15 February 2016 (UTC)
 
:::Thanks for sharing your point. However, after looking at the list of wikis you provided, I came to a conclusion that most of the wikis' titles aren't spaced out in words because they serve as mere titles and do not directly refer to specific content. 나무위키, 구스위키, and 오리위키 are examples of wikis whose titles don't refer to specific contents since they serve as a hub for contents with many different topics. Many wikis that mainly cover a specific content do have spaced titles. For example, 포켓몬 위키, which is a Korean language wiki dedicated to the media franchise Pokémon, is spaced out.

== Audio samples for circle pages ==
 
 
 
I wanted to know what you considered to be the acceptable number of audio samples for a circle page? So far I've only used one audio sample per page (1-1.5mb on average) but I don't feel that's really enough for groups with longer running discographies or a greater verity in their arrangement style. I think that 2 is sufficient but 3 is preferable, I didn't want to set a bad president so I'm asking before I change from 1 per circle page. I thought about asking the irc but I wasn't sure if that was the right place, sorry if this isn't the right place to ask either.

Good day Touhou Wiki. I am here on behalf of GensokyoVN, a community of Vietnamese Touhou fans (there are many fan groups as Vietnam, and it looks like we cant go on the same way, anyway). We has been conducting translation and compilation of a Touhou wiki in Vietnamese for a year, before get enough brave to go here and ask for a site. I would like to ask whether we could have a wiki site for our language, and the prequisite for doing so. Thank you in advance (And pardon my English, too).

Hello, it's Ronglun here again :P, I just have some questions, pardon my english, thanks :D
 
 
 
First, A few days ago my friend requested an account named petayuuchan and yet, she hasn't receiced the password, can you please help her with it?
 
Second, about the irc channel, is there anyway to read the archived messages? Cause whenever I log out, I can't read the messages that had been posted before I logged in again.
 
 
 
Please answer my questions, thank you very very much.
 
:Her account request came up on the Vietnamese wiki, and I had to look there to do it.  She should have her email now.

::i don't know Lua scripting or any other programming language actually, I just know what I've read about wiki markup on a couple of mediawiki help pages. All I'm trying to do is automate the first sentence of the musicartical templates description (you know the "It features arrangements of etc." part), the page already calls templates for each original title so it wouldn't be hard to automate the first sentence by defining variables on each of those templates. The problem is having them sorted properly, the best I could come up with using my limited knowledge of wiki marup was a string of statements that would run through all the main games, music CDs, print works and other works in order to display the list in the correct order. It seemed like it would be too cluttered so when I did some googling I found that array extension, it has a sort function as well as options for listing things with the appropriate punctuation and grammar. It's basically exactly what I was looking for, although since I don't know anything about Lua scripting it could be that it's entirely possible without the extension. I'd wager that it probably is doable without the extension, but I don't know how. I will say that the extension seems pretty useful even beyond my own interest in it, I was kind of surprised we didn't have it already.

Excuse me. Do you know how to remove the top-level heading in the article "main page"? In the past I was created by mistake the article [[Mediawiki:Mainpage-nstab]] of Korean Touhou Wiki, and I deleted it later. But the header of the article "main page" (literally "대문" in Korean language) still displayed. Maybe I think I can't straighten out this problem, because I don't have technical rights.

Hello,
  
== Some questions about deleting unused doujin music images ==
+
Can you please give me a summary of the exact timeline (and reasons why) of the Touhou Wiki leaving the Wikia network (or, as it is called now, FANDOM, or FANDOOM as it is now being nicknamed by some ex-Wikia people) to restart as an independent project? Just to learn about the history and the points of view of all involved parties, without me defending or attacking either side.
  
So what I would like is the ability to delete images since I find myself restrained by not knowing the catalog numbers of most albums leading up to events, I understand it might presumptuous of me to ask but I think I've contributed enough to show I won't misuse it. But more than just asking for it I want to know if it would actually be useful for old images to be deleted, I don't know the ins and outs of it but we share images with a number of other language wikis, so would deleting unused images here effect them? In practice I would use the ability to upload images knowing I could delete them in favor of the correct naming format later, but I'd prefer just uploading with the album title and uploading again down the line if I find the catalog number.
+
I do know that WikiDex (the Spanish version of Bulbapedia, the Pokémon encyclopedia) left FANDOM because of the portable-infobox controversy (indeed, it is WikiDex who coined up FANDOOM), and that most recently other wikis left because of the domain-name change (from wikia.com to fandom.com). I would like to listen to your version of events (that is, if you were also an ex-Wikia editor who witnessed the fork).
  
I guess what I really want is some clear guidance on doujin album related image uploads. I had decided to just leave the album covers out altogether for a couple of pages but that seems unreasonable. [[User:Ycdtosa|Ycdtosa]] ([[User talk:Ycdtosa|talk]]) 04:36, 29 December 2016 (UTC)

I've pulled the new Lua-based version of Template:Citation and all of it's Lua modules from Wikipedia, and the updated Template:Cite_web. Please make sure you use Template:Citation instead of Template:Citation/core for your new template. These are templates that have rarely ever been used, if at all, up until recently. If you encounter any other issues with templates on the wiki, let me know and I can update things. Mami (talk) 22:53, 4 April 2019 (UTC)
Now Template:Cite web/doc shows new red-link errors: Template:Citation Style documentation/usage vertical end, Template:Em, Template:Section link. These appear to be templates used only for documentation, not for the template itself; maybe they could be removed. Although the first one seems to be required to format the full parameter set vertical table. ‐⁠‑Silent Sinner in Scarlet (SilSinn9801)⁠💬 23:49, 4 April 2019 (UTC)
That first red-link seems to be an easy one, maybe I can create it and stop worrying you. ‐⁠‑Silent Sinner in Scarlet (SilSinn9801)⁠💬 00:00, 5 April 2019 (UTC)
Yeah there's a lot of documentation templates for it. They're not really necessary unless you want to look at them. I'm trying to make sure the template+module is going to work fine. Mami (talk) 00:03, 5 April 2019 (UTC)
There is now a new hitch: now every call to {{cite web}} prints a citation with some weird "<templatestyles src="Module:Citation/CS1/styles.css"></templatestyles> message appended to the end. Maybe are we missing something? ‐⁠‑Silent Sinner in Scarlet (SilSinn9801)⁠💬 00:12, 5 April 2019 (UTC)
The same thing also happens with my sandboxed {{User:SilSinn9801/Cite book}} template: the citation itself prints properly (including the ISBN), but with the strange Templatestyles message also appended at the end. Also, using the DOI parameter for some reason crashes the template and instead of getting a citation, I get a bold red Lua error message (the error message itself is written as a <!-- comment --> in User:SilSinn9801/Cite book/doc's source code). ‐⁠‑Silent Sinner in Scarlet (SilSinn9801)⁠💬 01:02, 5 April 2019 (UTC)
And finally, all those appended error messages vanished from the citations generated by the template calls. Although using DOI parameter still crashes the templates.
Apart from that: my sandboxed {{User:SilSinn9801/Cite book}} template is now ready for deployment. Would you approve it for mainspacing as {{Cite book}}? ‐⁠‑Silent Sinner in Scarlet (SilSinn9801)⁠💬 06:59, 5 April 2019 (UTC)
Yeah, I got it all fixed. And go ahead, you can move your template into the mainspace. Mami (talk) 07:11, 5 April 2019 (UTC)
Now, can you please delete these two leftover redirects?
Thankee! ‐⁠‑Silent Sinner in Scarlet (SilSinn9801)⁠💬 07:42, 5 April 2019 (UTC)

Broken links in your Music Dev subpage[edit]

Your Music Dev subpage has broken links (pointing to your old username Mamizou rather than your current username Mami). Pointing this out because, you know, PMD98 music is my specialty. ‐⁠‑Silent Sinner in Scarlet (SilSinn9801)⁠💬 07:58, 5 April 2019 (UTC)
