Hey guys, Darkslime here, gonna be working mostly on the doujin music articles and categories. Maybe I'll clean some other stuff up, but whatever. Darkslime 20:58, 9 February 2009 (UTC)

If you are interested in Touhou TCG, you can also check Touhou Kontonfu. I lack the motivation to improve the article right now. Zenitho 17:06, August 12, 2010 (UTC)

As you can see, I've been devoting most of my time to editing UFO-related articles. My goal is to present my vision of what the wiki's style should be. or something. Everything's always up for discussion, but no one seems to care! Or else they all like it. Darkslime 17:21, 17 January 2011 (UTC)

Pc98[edit]

Hi...I heard you wish to help with the PC98 endings. Th02 is already covered...it's just Th03,Th04, and Th05. If you didn't wish to or never asked...just delete this message XD MaronaPossessed 18:17, 25 August 2011 (UTC)

I'd be glad to help; what I wanted to know more, though, is if these translations are going to be for this wiki or for the endings wiki. What was your plan? (I am a member of the "just put up the damn endings" faction, but w/e).
I actually did all-out translations of TH03's endings, but then they got deleted from the endings wiki or something, so that's been lost. Darkslime 20:18, 25 August 2011 (UTC)
The issue is that I cannot post the link to the wiki with the touhou endings. Nobody will allow it. Do you have a MoTK account? That way I can send it to you. MaronaPossessed 21:55, 25 August 2011 (UTC)
If you have a MoTK account, my account is MaronaPossessed, so send me a message there, i'll drop you the link, and after that discuss here if you want XDMaronaPossessed 01:09, 9 September 2011 (UTC)
I don't care if you want to link to the site, at least in Talk. I mean, we blatantly rip images too (for each character page), and that's also against his wishes. If I wanted to look up any dialogue, certainly it'd be far easier to look it up here than to fire up Easy Mode. I do want to push for at least ending summaries on this wiki though... - Kiefmaster99 04:29, 9 September 2011 (UTC)
Oh...that case...linkMaronaPossessed 17:34, 9 September 2011 (UTC)
I had been working on ending summaries as part of my story summary revamp, actually. It didn't seem to catch on, so... I guess I'll finish them whenever? >_< Undefined Fantastic Object/Story, Phantasmagoria of Dim.Dream/Story Darkslime 11:16, 9 September 2011 (UTC)

Changes 4 Char Page[edit]

You got my vote,chief.
I hope the others agree, cuz this is what I will use on the Es side
I'd hate for a disagreement when I'm half-way done.

Hmm... Have you got suggestions?[edit]

Hi Darkslime! o/

I see you've moved some sections on Fujiwara no Mokou's page. Hopefully soon, we can have the character guidelines implemented, but it's not in good shape atm imo. I was wondering that, If you want to, you can either change some bits on that page or give out suggestions on how things can be improved. thanks~! Tony64 (Talk/Con.) 14:44, 17 April 2012 (UTC)

sure thing. I moved sections around because I added more, so I'll go over there and see what I can do. here are my rationalizations in the meantime:
  • We didn't have a section for backstory, personality, or abilities. We've been having to resort to reading the official profile or gleaning information from the "additional information" section, which is rather silly, especially for characters with a lot of story to them like Mokou.
  • I moved the name+concept part down to the bottom of that section because ultimately, that's not what's important about the character.
  • I bumped up the spell cards section to be above the additional information section. I think it qualifies as being important enough to be above it.
I think that's all I did... we should probably canonize the gallery as well, and a couple of other things. Darkslime 17:12, 17 April 2012 (UTC)
Ok, at first glance, I see a few things in the guidelines I'm not too sure about:
  • "Personality" and "ability" should probably be subsections under "general information"; they don't really seem like they need their own sections
  • "Backstory" should be a section above the Character Design section - really, which is more important?
  • The Occupation and Possessions section should probably just be dissolved into the general information section(and not given their own sections at all)
  • In fact, the Story section should probably be above the Character Design section too
  • The canon works section makes absolutely no sense to me. any relevant appearances in first-party works should be described in Story and have details appearing in other sections, imo.
  • I don't understand why we need a theories section - this should almost definitely be a subsection under fanon culture, if anything.
  • And spell cards should probably go right before or right after Character Design, again in order of importance.
That's what I got at the moment. I didn't want to dig through the gigantic talk section. In general, I think the template needs to be simplified quite a bit before we're ready to go through and redo articles. Darkslime 17:19, 17 April 2012 (UTC)
  • I agree with "backstory" being above and not within the "story" section.
  • I agree that "occupation" should not be a section for most characters. I am a bit puzzled as to why it was deemed important in the first place. There are only a few characters who have an important occupation. However, there could be exceptions.
  • I disagree with mixing PC-98 and windows information; PC-98 stuff should stay in its own setion, since the PC-98 and windows are entirely separate in story and characteristics.
  • I also agree with bumping the spell cards up as well.--としあき 21:01, 17 April 2012 (UTC)
The thing with the PC-98 info is that only... four characters would even need that section(Reimu, Marisa, Yuuka, Alice... missing anyone?). I think we could still separate "story" into two larger sections of "pc-98" and "windows". Darkslime 14:14, 18 April 2012 (UTC)
That's right; it would be a section only for those four characters. It's that it's not just about story, but also about personality and all other aspects as well, which is why it can't just be separated in "story."--としあき 18:09, 18 April 2012 (UTC)
Point taken. Having a section regarding this for just those four characters seems like sound logic to me. Darkslime 19:59, 18 April 2012 (UTC)
kk, I'll do some rearranging on the page at some point. The ones I worry about more is the theories and other canon works sections. For the canon one, I didn't and still believe there was an 100% seperation tbh (Until Tosiaki proven some info, but also proven they are the same character lol). btw, this section is also on Mima, Yuki, Mai, VIVIT and Gates (Which I added and Tosi & DS4 did translations for the Seihou chars).
With theories, I was the one who suggested that section. I thought things were all over the place on Sakuya's page (with her been a lunarian and having relations to Jack the Ripper) and Maribel's page. However, some time later, other users had problems with this section, but I forgot what ppl said, so I'm leaving that for the time being.
For the char basis, it has been agreed with me and Tosi to have just "name", "appearance", and if needed, and "origin" section explaining what the character is or may be based on. However, having that going down makes me feel that we really are changing stuff, which I don't mind lol, but still feel we're removing the old.
Sorry if I said too much here, but thank you for your suggestions! (Same to you Tosi ^^) Tony64 (Talk/Con.) 01:12, 20 April 2012 (UTC)
Theories are strictly fanon, though, and the more I think about it, the more I think those kinds of things should just be under the fanon section. Darkslime 12:46, 20 April 2012 (UTC)
Having an expanded fanon section is not a bad idea, I would say. Initially, the concern was that the fanon section needed to be written using bullet points, and theories would not fit well since they need to be written in paragraphs. Since we have now decided that fanon can be either in bullet, paragraphs, or a mixture of the two, having theories in the fanon section should present no problem.--としあき 13:25, 20 April 2012 (UTC)
Having to decide between bullet points and paragraphs for a certain section seems silly to me, but whatever :P Darkslime 16:29, 20 April 2012 (UTC)
Also a comment about having personality, abilities, etc. being their own section rather than under "general information": the reason was that before I removed the Nicovideo Encyclopedia content for being an unattributed translation, the pages mainly looked like this (version with everything under the concept section) and this (version with everything under the concept section).--としあき 15:12, 20 April 2012 (UTC)
I guess that for characters with a more fleshed-out personality would need their own section for that. I was going off of just what I did for Mokou's page, but even her backstory section was pretty large. You're probably right about that. I do think "name concept" etc should definitely be a lot farther down the page though. Darkslime 16:29, 20 April 2012 (UTC)

SpellCards[edit]

Wow! Thanks! I didn't know that. I had some problems with that but in the time they started to show up so I just waited. Thanks for the tip :) --Camilo113 (talk) 17:47, 17 August 2013 (UTC)
