Website was not working[edit]

Hello. (Should I be posting here?)

Yesterday, when I tried to access this wiki..It redirected me to some Anime Forum. What happened? I even tried opening other pages inside the wiki, like the Language selection page/Alice Margatroid page. And still not working. Well, Now it's working, but I would like to know what happened.

Thank you. ☢☢☢ CAUTION!! ☢☢☢ 10:37, 8 August 2011 (UTC)

It was a temporary glitch in a part of the webserving stack, causing things to round-robin a bit. Momiji 18:12, 8 August 2011 (UTC)

Who do I ask in terms of translations?[edit]

Hi I'm kind of new to the whole wiki editing community. I'm a native japanese speaker and thought people could use some assitance here. I didn't want to go on a "translation correction spree" without asking some sort of chief translator...if there is one. Is there somekind of translation team here? Anyone in charge?

Not really, it's mostly a decentralized operation. Feel free to edit as you see fit. Momiji 03:27, 16 August 2011 (UTC)
Just saying that i'm also a native Japanese speaker. There are quite a few mistakes around all the translations but never felt like it cause it's to much work. Someone that can go on a translation correction spree would be nice though. You can try this as a start Scarlet Weather Rhapsody/Translation/Suika's Scenario. That one has alot of mistakes (I didn't cheak any of the other scenarios though). --Hikaruxz 03:42, 16 August 2011 (UTC)
Well I'm not sure what you want me to do specifically. The beginning of any sort of work here is someone seeing errors and fixing them. That's how any wiki works, from something small like Touhou Wiki all the way up to Wikipedia. Poor translations and content rewriting/refactoring is probably the major issue we have on the Wiki; it's painful and dull, and requires a skilled writer to do properly, but make a huge difference in the long run quality-wise. If you do see errors, please feel free to fix them! ^.^ Momiji 04:21, 16 August 2011 (UTC)
I had a question with these. How accurate do translation usually have to be. Alot of the translations are usally to literal and translate from Japanese to English but not from English back to Japanese. Some compleatly change the whole sentence to something just as similar.--Hikaruxz 04:26, 16 August 2011 (UTC)
The translations should keep to the meaning and spirit of the original text as close as possible. Not overly rigid so it feels like the characters are robots, but make sure the translations maintain the life from the original text. That's about it. Momiji 05:09, 16 August 2011 (UTC)

How do I make a user page where you type in your profile?[edit]

This question was probably answered hundred times someplace I haven't found. Sorry to bother. I suppose the page has to be created first? since I don't see the edit tab. Tren 21:31, 16 August 2011 (UTC)

Click your name, write something, then click save page. That's it. Master Bigode 22:24, 16 August 2011 (UTC)
When i click on my name (which is in red text since it links to a page with no content), I get nothing but a "There is currently no text in this page. You can search for this page title in other pages, or search the related logs". No edit/add topics tabs on the upper right corner. Tren 00:20, 17 August 2011 (UTC)
You may not yet be able to create pages yet, you might need to wait longer until you can create pages because new users can't create pages for 24 hours and they have to do at least 1 edit. Try later on and see... --Tony64 (Talk) 00:29, 17 August 2011 (UTC)
Or somebody else can just create it for you. Also, Momiji, I think putting the 24-hour restriction in the Welcoming messages would help a bit, as this is now becoming a frequently-asked question. - Kiefmaster99 00:51, 17 August 2011 (UTC)

IRC[edit]

Hi Momiji! ^^

I just like to ask one question, even thought I'm banned from the IRC, am I'm still able to join? I know that I shouldn't have abused Keine-tan and I know that you don't like Keine-tan to be abused and I'm sorry for that. I know my ZUN and coke are useless against your tengu powers (lol), but I feel like I've had my time out.

So that's what I'm asking, can I please have a chance to return to the IRC early? I promise I won't be as much of an idiot as before and will do ANYTHING you and the other ops say.

thanks ^^ (Sorry I posted thid here, thought it's only place thst I know of to contact you.) Tony64 (Talk/Con.) 23:35, 20 August 2011 (UTC)

Please don't come back for a week. Thank you. Momiji 04:52, 21 August 2011 (UTC)
OK no worries. sorry. Tony64 (Talk/Con.) 11:07, 21 August 2011 (UTC)

Maidens of the Kaleidoscope[edit]

Hey, I made an account on shrinemaiden.org yesterday, so I'm obviously new. Is it basically just a huge touhou forum or is there other stuff? How does it work? Can you give me any advice so I can get used to it quicker? Any help would be appreciated! (And my account on shrinemaiden.org isn't called ChocolateLily, it's called SATORI_SAMA. to let you know :P) Thanks--ChocolateLily 08:30, 9 September 2011 (UTC)

Yeah, that's basically the gist of it. Just make sure you look through the Forum/IRC Rules and Info, there's some things that will get you banned with extreme prejudice (discussing/linking downloads to official games, etc.). There are some other pretty big subsections to the forums too, like forum roleplay/games and whatnot. All of the actual Touhou stuff is within the "Hakurei Shrine" section, while the more off-topic stuff is within "Beyond the Border". That's about it. Momiji 15:16, 10 September 2011 (UTC)

A rare case[edit]

Somehow, GlobalUsage works here, but majority not working, possible due to database problem since shifting to here - KyoriAsh 11:17, 27 September 2011 (UTC)

Yeah, there'll be an image here or there that'll actually show up properly in GU, but most don't. K and Chloe are still investigating it. Momiji 19:33, 27 September 2011 (UTC)
Regarding Global Usage, it seems working IF other wiki USED non-uploaded file link in article (red link), and then upload at certain language, the uploaded file in that language wiki will show up Global Usage, but not other language wiki. A sample I made: File:Th07Reimu.png, I edit across all language wiki, then uploaded in en, thus en show up Global Usage - KyoriAsh 19:43, 2 October 2011 (UTC)

Andorieme[edit]

Hi Momiji. Just thought on letting you know that the user "Andorieme" was honestly NOT me. I checked the logs and saw what it said. Tony64 (Talk/Con.) 15:19, 30 September 2011 (UTC)

Category:Spammers[edit]

Hi Momiji. I was wondering if the users and ip's in Category:Spammers are bocked. If not, shouldn'd they since they vandaled the wiki? Tony64 (Talk/Con.) 10:51, 3 October 2011 (UTC)

No, but they're all remnants from Wikia, and they're all at least a year old if not more. You can go through them and mark them for deletion. Momiji 16:58, 3 October 2011 (UTC)
Category cleared. Tony64 (Talk/Con.) 21:56, 3 October 2011 (UTC)

Sorry about the delay, I replied on your forum. Momiji 08:03, 6 October 2011 (UTC)
So, how we gonna do with our server's de page? Forgo it and favor to their wiki or retain? I think it is best to connect to them - KyoriAsh 15:42, 6 October 2011 (UTC)
I think we'll just point de at them. Momiji 20:42, 6 October 2011 (UTC)
