From Touhou Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Hello there! This is my talk page for if you have any concerns or suggestions with my additions to the Touhou Wiki. I mainly add translations of song lyrics that are in serious danger of being lost for good for whatever reason (such as the ones by Robin/Sterngazer after site deletion or from being buried in YouTube comments). Why? Because the feeling of a translation being lost and not being able to understand the song anymore is such a terrible feeling, especially since a lot of our translators are very busy with other things in order to retranslate them. That's why I hope by adding any translations I can find here, I can save them in the event things like the original YouTube video or the Wayback Machine are lost, and allow people to keep understanding the songs.

Of course, sometimes my sources can get a little...odd, due to some primary translation sources no longer being avaliable (aka, I can only find them in YouTube videos, on secondhand sites, and even the backlogs of this very wiki!). Which is where things can get a bit...finicky.

If you have any serious issues with what I'm doing (like, say, I added your translation here and you want it gone), bring them to this page so we can sort it out. I know I can't please everyone with what I'm doing, but I'd much rather be the type to do it and acknowledge my own mistakes when brought to my attention, than to never try and lose the meaning behind lyrics forever.

Other than that, reach me here if you want to talk Touhou or any possible changes here with me for any reason! I don't bite, I promise!

Some thoughts

Hi, when editing album or lyrics pages, please put only the Japanese text into the {{lang|ja|}}. You also do not need to put tiles of songs in the {{lang|en|}}, as you did on the page for Permanence.Yamaxandu (talk) 16:47, 22 November 2022 (UTC)

Oh!!! Okay, sorry! I thought you were supposed to do it for all of them! Whoops! I'll only put {{lang|ja|}} (and on only actual Japanese text) from now on! Sorry about that! Maiden in Orange 13:44, 22 November 2022 (CST)

Listing print works (and games)

In the documentation for {{Circle}}, we're supposed to just list games and printworks like this:

*[[Touhou Sky Fight|東方スカイファイト]] (2010)

I'm not really a fan of it but since there isn't a {{PrintworkItem}} template, it's the best we got. --Silentg (talk) 06:27, 14 April 2023 (UTC)

Yeah, I was pretty sure it was something like that. A bummer, since I think a lot of circles specializing in printworks are cool! But I'll just stick to those rules for now. I'm not too familiar with the actual coding side of things, but I personally think it would be nice to have one in the future. Thanks for answering! --Maiden in Orange (talk) 20:04, 14 April 2023 (UTC)

Question about Pizunian

So according to the Chinese wiki, "Pizunian" seems to be a circle that Pizuya and hellnian formed together to release their collaborations under? But then the albums' website are on pizuya.com?? Is it like Demetori where most people say it's "arranged by Demetori" when it's technically supposed to be "Tokunan and Kyuuhouji"??? How am I supposed to tag their albums????

How to use multicolumn

Just set |multicolumn to Y (or whatever you want) and add {{MusicArticle/Divider}} to when you want to start a new column like this:

; '''[[SOUND HOLIC]]''' (Disc 03)
: Arrangement: 709sec., SHU, GUCCI
: Lyrics: Blue E
: Vocals: 709sec., Nana Takahashi
{{MusicArticle/Divider}}
; '''[[AdamKadmon]]''' (Disc 03)
: Arrangement: {{ワニ}}
: Lyrics: {{ワニ}}
: Vocals: Tamari

Hope this help! silentg (talk) 08:55, 26 May 2023 (UTC)

Oh! So that's what I was doing wrong! Thank you so much! This absolutely helps! - Maiden in Orange (talk) 15:09, 26 May 2023 (UTC)
