Arrange CDs

Hello! Thank you for filling the wiki with doujin CD articles. But please adhere to well-established pattern. Use "source" and "original title" fields, and use original japanese names for the titles. Or mark your edits that they require attention so people could see that at Recent changes page and fix them. --WGH 07:21, 13 December 2010 (PST)

(Reply to User_talk:WGH#RE: Arrange CDs)
No, there isn't. Just write something in the summary :-).
Most group sites have information on source of songs. I don't know Japanese either, but can find it intuitively.
Well, to be honest, I don't see the difference, too. But there is difference! See here: wikipedia:User:Wikipeditor/CJK

On the use of {{lang|ja| tags

The {{lang|ja| tags are only meant to be wrapped around words that are rendered in Kanji or kana. Otherwise, the text will end up looking weird. Please refrain from wrapping them around words using roman letters, please. jigglyppuff8 Talk Contribs 12:07, 15 December 2010 (PST)

Would that include the ones in titles where part of it is in japanese? --Tsukihime (later)
In that case, you would only wrap it around the Japanese part. {{lang|ja|感情の摩天楼 ~}} Cosmic Mind is correct usage. {{lang|ja|感情の摩天楼 ~ Cosmic Mind}} is not. jigglyppuff8 Talk Contribs 12:23, 15 December 2010 (PST)
What about numbers (123) and symbols (,.!) ? I'm assuming if I have kanji and roman characters interleaved (のhaのhのa) I'd have to surround each instance of 'の' with the lang tags but not the 'ha'? Tsukihime (re:)
Numbers and symbols are roman characters, so those are excluded from the lang tag as well. Exceptions being the Japanese variants of those characters (? and 。).
Also, yes, you would have to surround each instance, so it would be {{lang|ja|の}}ha{{lang|ja|の}}h{{lang|ja|の}}a, but it's not like that happens very often.

Alright, I have updated my script according to your clarifications and any future articles will have the correct lang tags. I will go back and edit the articles I have created sometime. Tsukihime (re: re:)
Script? As in some sort of code that automatically makes these articles? jigglyppuff8 Talk Contribs 13:21, 15 December 2010 (PST)
Ya, since there are a number of standards that we have to follow, as well as a pretty structured template, I wrote a small page for myself that allows me to fill in a couple boxes here and there, hit a button, and then I get a finished music article ready to publish. I use as my main source of information, and the format there is pretty structured as well so I can just copy paste everything, do a little manual tweaking, and have something ready in 5 mins. --Tsukihime 14:05, 15 Dec. 2010 (PST)

I've started re-editing the pages, but it seems like some spaces are typed in roman encoding while some spaces are not. Same with the ~ sybmol. This means that any editors may see '''{{lang|ja|感情の摩天楼}} {{lang|ja|~}} Cosmic Mind''' simply because my script only distinguishes them based on "is it roman or not?" and does not care whether "does that space appear between two non-roman characters or not". Doesn't affect the output and technically, the space between two non-roman chars should definitely NOT be surrounded by lang tags, so I guess this should be fine (to have a lot of lang tags everywhere). I mean strictly speaking, we probably shouldn't be enclosing any space characters, but that would be too much trouble for the average user to do it manually, but if it's automated it isn't a problem. --Tsukihime 7:10, 16 Dec 2010 (PST)

Btw, would it be preferred to have romanized names for the people (vocals, lyrics, etc.) or the kanji name? Seems like there's no defined standard here. --Tsukihime 7:18, 16 Dec 2010 (PST)
Most of the time, the names should be in Kanji. There are a couple of case by case exceptions where some arrangers such as Linjin (隣人) use their romanized name for some albums and Kanji for the others. When in doubt, check the album's website. jigglyppuff8 Talk Contribs 15:50, 16 December 2010 (PST)
I've noticed in your revisions that the titlejp field doesn't have lang tags. Same with the group field. Is there something different about these fields? Tsukihime 17:02 , 16 Dec 2010 (PST)
The coding for the MusicArticle template has it so that the titlejp field is automatically wrapped around by the lang|ja tags. jigglyppuff8 Talk Contribs 16:53, 16 December 2010 (PST)
I'm assuming that is the case for all of the other fields (besides tracklist)?--Tsukihime (RE:)
Actually, it's only titlejp. All the other fields require lang|ja if Japanese characters are present (I would have fixed the group fields that needed them in my previous edits, but it slipped my mind unfortunately). Sorry to have to force all these little nuances of a simple page onto you so quick. jigglyppuff8 Talk Contribs 18:27, 16 December 2010 (PST)
Good to know before I did some more! It takes about less than a minute to fix a page up (ie: tags and stuff) so these are just minor details for the most part. Tsukihime 18:30, 16 Dec 2010 (PST)

List by Song

Hi! I've noticed you did some bigger updates to List by Song section and I was wondering whether you're manually serching for songs. If yes then you don't have to go through all that trouble. The thing is, I recently wrote a script that automatically parses all album pages to generate List by Song pages. Turns out WGH had the same idea earlier and now we're debating what to do with all this. Once we're done though, you can expect a big update that should contain all the songs that are properly labeled so I think it would be better to just leave those pages as they are for now. Sorry for the inconvenience. BuraQ 04:50, 19 December 2010 (PST)

That's pretty cool. I've been contemplating such a thing, but never figured out how that might work. I've only been doing the ones that I've been actually looking for remixes though, and needed a list to keep track of. Is there a section where people describe what kind of projects they're doing? It'd be more useful and people can see what kind of ideas others have (as well as how they're doing it) I'd be interested in knowing how to parse *all* album pages, since that would make it really nice for updating "out of date templates" to the current one. And anything else that requires one to manually go to each album and do a little tweaking. Tsukihime 19 Dec 2010
The discussion is now here. --WGH 07:04, 19 December 2010 (PST)

File Reupload

PXPANDAEXOTIC_groupbanner.jpg appears to still be missing. Chloe 15:12, 26 December 2010 (PST)

I was wondering what to do with it since the name is wrong. --Tsukihime 15:47, 26 December 2010 (PST)

About your recent edits

Can I ask you why you erased all the "Return to" parts from Youkai Tan Q Roku's subordinate pages? If they're all erased then there's no way to return from the subordinate page to the previous page. Isn't that quite inconvenient? Deathsoul4 17:55, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

Back button on your browser is an option. I realize that people may be bookmarking or directly hotlinking them. There are also plans to find a different way to navigate wiki pages that would be more efficient than manually linking them. --Tsukihime 23:08, 9 January 2011 (UTC)
If we can get subpages working correctly, we'll be able to create automatic backlinks, so this issue should hopefully be resolved very soon. Pufferfish101 03:41, 10 January 2011 (UTC)

Description lines

A generic description line normally looks like this:

It is an instrumental and vocal arrange album featuring arranges from Phantasmagoria of Dim.Dream, Embodiment of Scarlet Devil, Perfect Cherry Blossom and Imperishable Night.

So the variables here would be the music album type (vocal/instrumental) and what games are included. So I guess the generic line would be:

It is (an instrumental/an instrumental and vocal/a vocal) arrange album featuring arranges from (x), (y) and (z).

So far I've listed the albums by their game number (regardless of how many songs were remixed from that game, or their order in the album).

Some albums have original tracks, so for those I added (in the same line)

...(z), as well as (one/two/#/some) original composition(s).

Also, for albums that arrange music from only one game, I used

It is (a/an) (x) (vocal/instrumental/vocal and instrumental) arrange album.

The a/an here depends on the game title, mind. I think that's about it... Oh and the discography page descriptions are only different at the start (those use "An (instrumental/vocal/whatever) etc" instead of "It is an etc". There were other minor things but I think this should do. Mizutori 19:56, 21 March 2011 (UTC)

Oh! I almost forgot, at some point a few days ago I started writing it "vocal and instrumental" instead of "instrumental and vocal", which I thought sounded better, so I went and changed the ones I'd done before. Hopefully it's still early enough not to be a bother to change the parser... (sorry orz) Mizutori 19:26, 31 March 2011 (UTC)
The description is constructed as a separate string. It is independent of all of the other functions. In fact, removing the description is a matter of taking out one line. Any decent program should be written as flexible as possible after all, although some may give that up for performance or other factors --Tsukihime 19:28, 31 March 2011 (UTC)
Ah, that's good to know. *phew* But it could also be a pain if a lot of pages have already been parsed... ^^;; But I guess at this point that's not really so. Anyway, thank you. :D Mizutori 19:37, 31 March 2011 (UTC)
I think filling out one discography page takes as much time as moving one image or updating a category. --Tsukihime 19:39, 31 March 2011 (UTC)

Discography Parser

What happened to the Discography parser? It seems to have been replaced by the Lyrics parser... just when I needed to use it lol. Mizutori 02:44, 26 March 2011 (UTC)

LOL I must've edited the wrong page. I don't have the source files with me (I left them on my workstation) so this will be an unproductive weekend. --Tsukihime 16:41, 26 March 2011 (UTC)

Touhoumon World Link

When can we start adding in those empty, empty pages? ♥★♦ 13:50, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

anytime you want --Tsukihime 13:59, 30 March 2011 (UTC)
Also, could you teach me (and if you can't direct me to someone who can) to begin creating English patches?
That would be my life's work right there, translating games!
Thanks in advance!

♥★♦ 01:51, 31 March 2011 (UTC)

Sorry, no idea how to patch games. --Tsukihime 12:46, 31 March 2011 (UTC)
Frowny face...
I tried googleing it but no avail....

Please, check it out, i've seen you helped the other guy :)

Move Request

Hi Tsukihime ^,^ I was just wondering if you (or anyone else who is reading this) can do all the move requests as I'm waiting to do some edits on the character pages. I'm trying to get all the character images sorted out and up to date with their names, which will take a slow step by step. Thank you. (Sorry if I'm wasting time) Tony64 (Talk/Con.) 17:48, 5 July 2011 (UTC)

Edit the articles to reflect the requested name so I won't have to do it --Tsukihime 18:55, 5 July 2011 (UTC)
No worries ;D Tony64 (Talk/Con.) 19:26, 5 July 2011 (UTC)

Doujin Circle Project

Hi, I saw your work, and I was wondering if you could somehow integrate my circle compilation with your project somehow.

♥★♦ 01:27, 14 July 2011 (UTC)

If it is placing banners beside each group, WGH mentioned I shouldn't do that cause it would end up making a lot of requests to the server. There are at least 700 circles listed and that would become quite a load --Tsukihime 13:53, 14 July 2011 (UTC)

Requests being the load time for bringing the images, right?

So... there are 3 options:

1. Split them up somehow

2. Scale them down somehow

3. Forgot the project all together

Although, I kinda want to have it because it would look nice.

♥★♦ 00:57, 15 July 2011 (UTC)

I think it was the number of requests being made. So if you put 700 images, 700 separate requests will be made. I had put up about 50 banners but the load time was fairly slow already --Tsukihime 12:39, 15 July 2011 (UTC)
Hmm it seems we've hit a wall here.
I'm guessing there is no way to either cut the number of requests or improve the server speed, is there?
If that is the case, then my work will be discontinued because I'd really hate to use up what precious space we have.

♥★♦ 00:57, 18 July 2011 (UTC)

I have no clue. Maybe you can ask on IRC --Tsukihime 13:04, 18 July 2011 (UTC)


Out of curiosity, why was Touhou Sky Fight's page deleted? ChaosZero 03:45, 28 January 2012 (UTC)

Remove Request

I have a request, I didn't know the issue with the files uploaded in the pool (they had problems to show up) so I uploaded some files twice under a different name. So could you please delete those files:


thanks! Mai88 18:52, 31 August 2012 (CEST)
