Avril's VA keeps changingEdit

I changed it AGAIN. Who puts Shitaya Noriko there? D: Srsly. It makes me wonder if this person ever watched the anime or can read the Japanese voice-actor's name to change it. (besides, if they're checking MAL, it's WRONG as well. That's why I'm trying to change that as well) Sorry, but I just don't like it when I see voice-actors being listed wrong. :'/

I've checked the staff and cast page at TV Tokyo's website which gives Noriko Shitaya (下屋則子) as the VA for Avril (アブリル). Megumi Toyoguchi isn't even listed as part of the cast. Since the TV Tokyo website is an official source, Noriko Shitaya will be the one credited as Avril's VA. —Farix (t | c) 04:03, 8 February 2011 (UTC) P.S. The official website also lists Noriko Shitaya as the VA for Avril.

I see. I guess I was mislead by the 4th episode then, since I only watched that episode at the time. And I failed to check the Japanese sites themselves to see a confirmation. I humbly apologize, as I was the one causing all the problems.

Victorica v. VictoriqueEdit

Can we please come to a consensus about which spelling of Victorica/Victorique we should use throughout the article, and then try and stick to it? David Bailey (talk) 11:10, 2 April 2011 (UTC)

In French the final part, "-ique", is pronounced "eek" when the next word begins with a vowel, and "eek-e" when the next word begins with a consonant.

In the first novel Avril thinks that 'Victorique' is a boy's name. 'Victorique' is a rare name in French. More common names ending in a 'k' sound would be 'Frederic' for a boy, and 'Monique' for a girl. Pronunciation of the 'e' that commonly ends girls names is sufficiently different that the Japanese author probably made a mistake writing that Avril thought Victorique was a boy.

Gosick episode tableEdit

My edit on the table for the episodes for Gosick was undone recently, because it doesn't work on screens with wide resolutions.

I'm using a 1024 x 768 monitor, and the current settings on the table make the titles section scrunch up like this:

The solution I tried, setting the width allotments with percentages worked for other pages (specifically the Avatar: The Last Airbender episode pages). I'm proposing the following changes:

! width="30" | No.

! width="135" | Original airdate


!width="10%"| No.

!width="15%"| Original airdate

EikaKou (talk) 05:29, 17 July 2011 (UTC)

The problem with using percentage widths is that the columns will be either too wide or to narrow depending on the screen resolution. This is something we actually want to avoid. I'm not sure why your version if IE is screwing the pooch here, bit it seems to be the only browser affected as I can't reproduce this affect in other browsers or in IE9. Perhaps the solution is to declare the widths using CSS. But then, that would bring out the editors who will site WP:Deviations as a reason to remove all CSS markup in articles and template. —Farix (t | c) 12:46, 18 July 2011 (UTC)
I've found that the current change still appears in IE8 regardless of the screen resolution (well, also on a 1280 x 1024 monitor). I thought that by using percentages it would make the table more flexible, not less. If it's set to pixels, isn't it alloting 135px to the column at the end (for "Original Airdate")? Another editor told me that the unmarked column ("Title" in this case) should not be marked for width, which would allow it to expand and contract as the screen resolution allows it.
As far as I've previewed the proposed change on Firefox (on a 1280 x 1024 monitor and a 1024 x 768 monitor), it looks fine and it also works on IE8. On the other hand, if I change it and it's going to get reverted and/or editors are just going to cite that the one shouldn't deviate from the table, maybe I shouldn't bother anymore? I'd really like to apply the edit, but I don't want to cause trouble for it. EikaKou (talk) 22:26, 18 July 2011 (UTC)
I'm not sure that CSS markup (or rather, the most recent change of adding "px" after the numbers assigned in the width allotments) fixed the problem. It still looks the same on IE8. EikaKou (talk) 07:25, 20 July 2011 (UTC)

How is that percentage edit going to break the table? It looks fine to me too when I try it. It seems picky to me. The CSS thing doesn't change anything, it's still distorted in exactly the same way in IE8 as before. Might as well just go back to when it wasn't there at all. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:39, 25 July 2011 (UTC)

It breaks because using percentages causes the columns to become either too large on wider display or too small on narrower display. The width of the contents is fixed and will not scale with the width of the browser window. The table should not be designed to look good at a specific screen resolution but should look good in all screen resolutions. This bug seems to be limited to certain versions of IE8. The question then is, make it look good for a specific version of IE8 and a specific screen resolution while breaking the appearance of the table for everyone else? The answer to that is an obvious "no". —Farix (t | c) 19:54, 26 July 2011 (UTC)

The Original Research noticeEdit

As I also saw, there are some facts that I never picked up myself from watching the anime. I have flagged some area that requires citation. If anyone have time, they might want to cite it. On the other hand, I was thinking, would having the page flooded with citation be reader friendly?

I suppose that that questions could be answered by reading some featured articles; and it seems that they do have a lot of citations hanging at the end of every sentence. Flowright138 (talk) (contributions) 13:45, 19 October 2011 (UTC)
