Kimetsu no Yaiba reception sectionEdit

I made the following edit on the Reception section from the Kimetsu no Yaiba Page.

"According to an advertisement placed by Shueisha in Shinjuku Station, the first five volumes had printed 1 million copies as of May 2017. [2]. The first seven volumes had 1.5 million copies in print as of August 2017."

And it had these 2 Twitter links as sources. https://twitter.com/kimetsu_off/status/861471980519694336 https://twitter.com/kimetsu_off/status/892976710190112768


Proof this is an official Twitter account.

https://twitter.com/SHUEISHA_PR/following

As the description of the SHUEISHA_PR account indicates, this account only retweets things from official Shueisha property related accounts. Also, all the accounts this official Shueisha twitter follows are official accounts for various Shueisha properties. If you look at the top zone, you will find @kimetsu_off and you can even find retweeted tweets from the kimetsu_off account. Hopefully this is enough proof to convince you that the sales information is 100% legit. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 79.114.139.180 (talk) 15:28, 7 August 2017 (UTC)

Edit: Hi, I saw that you still kept that review in on the page, but I truly think it is pointless, I mean, who posts reviews of singular chapters of a manga on Wikipedia? At least wait for the first volume to get released(in English), that will be in 2018 most likely, more reviews will pop up then surely. Only the first 3 chapters have officially been translated when the manga launched over a year ago and I believe it truly is pointless to point out a review of 1 singular chapter when the series currently has 7 volumes and 71 chapters. It's kind of weird in my opinion. Thanks for your patience.

New Edit: Also, you could allow the print numbers for the first 5 volumes as well since it shows the quick progress the series had, going from 700k to 1.5 million volumes in print in the span of 2 months.

Thare was a dead link I switched itEdit

I just wants you to know what I did. I think you made a mistake so I switched it I hope that's ok — Preceding unsigned comment added by 23.242.67.118 (talk) 07:08, 16 August 2017 (UTC)

Your edits at Hurricane HarveyEdit

Notice that your repeated edits in regards to climate change can be considered disruptive (unresponsive at your own talk page section, adding uncalled notifications, adding weasel - misleading language into content). This can eventually mean that we have to take this to admin boards and eventually to ARB. prokaryotes (talk) 15:15, 29 August 2017 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Demonizer Zilch, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Kadokawa (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Point Isabel LightEdit

I removed the lit= field you added to the infobox because there is no such field in the NRHP infobox. You would need to add the entire lighthouse infobox if you want this field displayed. MB 23:14, 14 October 2017 (UTC)

Reactions to... cont.Edit

Would the outcomes of AFDs be useful for a potential discussion of "Reactions to..." articles? On this list I have watchlisted there are two nominations most likely heading toward deletion and I have noticed a small trend as of late to delete these articles. I would rather not nominate similar articles one by one. And unless we we achieve world peace soon, newer ones will surely appear. Do you believe a discussion will attract attention? By the way, your voice of logic at AFD is sorely missed and I hope to see your name a little more often again!TheGracefulSlick (talk) 02:54, 17 October 2017 (UTC)

@TheGracefulSlick: Thank you for your kind words =). I would propose that "reactions to..." articles always must first be placed into draft format only. The problem is trying to figure out if the event is going to or has had a huge impact or not. Take Reactions to the September 11 attacks for example, the reactions in many cases changed the world on how we now live. This one isn't easy but making it mandatory that these articles cant reach main-space without consensus seems the right way to go. - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 03:07, 17 October 2017 (UTC)

ANI Experiences surveyEdit

Beginning on November 28, 2017, the Wikimedia Foundation Community health initiative (Safety and Support and Anti-Harassment Tools team) will be conducting a survey to en.wikipedia contributors on their experience and satisfaction level with the Administrator’s Noticeboard/Incidents. This survey will be integral to gathering information about how this noticeboard works - which problems it deals with well, and which problems it struggles with.

The survey should take 10-20 minutes to answer, and your individual responses will not be made public. The survey is delivered through Google Forms. The privacy policy for the survey describes how and when Wikimedia collects, uses, and shares the information we receive from survey participants and can be found here:

If you would like to take this survey, please sign up on this page, and a link for the survey will be mailed to you via Special:Emailuser.

Animelo Set ListEdit

Hi there,

I appreciate your edits to keep pages up to date... However, is there any way you could keep the Set Lists intact for the Animelo page that removed back on the 11th Nov? (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Animelo_Summer_Live)

I relied on it heavily to determine which performers had a performance/song on particular days, including which Anime/Game/etc the song was originally from - the official site doesn't have the song origin.

If you could reinstate this section or make it collapsible to save space, I would appreciate it. Thanks. Goldfire86 (talk) 02:13, 29 November 2017 (UTC)

@Goldfire86: I will see what I can do tomorrow, I do not want to re-include sets that can't be verified as being true. - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 02:22, 29 November 2017 (UTC)
@Knowledgekid87: That's understandable. Sounds good if you could look at it. How would one go about verifying the sets? Even though I'm a nobody on Wikipedia... If it helps, I've watched all of the Animelo releases from the start and used the Wiki page set lists as a guide. They are accurate/true. I'll leave it in your capable hands. Goldfire86 (talk) 02:34, 29 November 2017 (UTC)

I also used the list of songs as an library, since it was very easy to find to songs that matched the year, If you can not fix that is not broken please, that be awesome. -signed the internet. — Preceding unsigned comment added by OverHereAndHere (talkcontribs) 18:20, 18 December 2017 (UTC)


yc"If you want to confirm the set list, u can check it here at the official website "http://anisama.tv/2017/special/setlist.php" and the set list is real. I also rely on the setlist for easier viewing throughout the years so i hope you can edit it back in."


I was devastated to see the set list removed (even though I know that it can be retrieved), and am only now responding as I have a few days off when I am not in Japan with time to respond carefully.

Goldfire86 expressed it very well and the entire Animelo Summer Live set lists being on a single page makes for speedy searching within a browser.

As far as verification goes, I attended in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2015, 2016, 2017 (all "Summer Live" concerts of those years), purchased the programmes for those years, and the book "Animelo Summer Live Perfect Book: Bridge to ReBridge" and have the DVD's from 2006 and 2007, and blu-rays from 2011-2016 inclusive apart from the Animelo Super Game Song live. Actual songs are listed at the anisama.tv site (minus some introductory music, which can be verified from the DVD's/blu-rays). The value of the combined set lists is that there is a wealth of cross-referencing.

The removal also took away the work of lots of people including myself who prefer to edit anonymously, as characterised by the post above that was unsigned.

There was no discussion on the talk page for Animelo Summer Live about the removal of the set lists before or after it happened either.

It would be better to restore the setlists and flag which sections need verification (e.g. where information from anisama.tv is lacking) rather than have to rebuild them from scratch.

Splouge (talk) 09:30, 6 January 2018 (UTC)

Almost 3 months and an afternoon of editing and verifying sources later I have restored the setlists for Animelo Summer Live and spinoff events. The later part of the 2017 setlist could do with linkifying references to the source anime of the songs.

Query on notabilityEdit

Do you think this article is one of those Charlie Hebo-type reaction articles that should be included or is this similar to ones I have seen deleted; I want to avoid another AFD discussion like Charlie Hebo. This situation is unique because there are a lot of content forks related to this incident which I think cover this article (except the otherwise useless condolences and condemnation) either similarly or more efficiently.TheGracefulSlick (talk) 04:24, 7 December 2017 (UTC)

Happy HolidaysEdit

  Happy Holidays
From Stave one of Dickens A Christmas Carol

Old Marley was as dead as a door-nail. Mind! I don’t mean to say that I know, of my own knowledge, what there is particularly dead about a door-nail. I might have been inclined, myself, to regard a coffin-nail as the deadest piece of ironmongery in the trade. But the wisdom of our ancestors is in the simile; and my unhallowed hands shall not disturb it, or the Country’s done for. You will therefore permit me to repeat, emphatically, that Marley was as dead as a door-nail.

So you see even Charles was looking for a reliable source :-) Thank you for your contributions to the 'pedia. ~ MarnetteD|Talk 23:17, 24 December 2017 (UTC)

Could you please add my reply to AN/I: Poland article - planned POV attackEdit

I'm really sorry to bother you, I sent this to User_talk:Beeblebrox, but it looks like he/she is not online:

Of course blaming the Poles for Auschwitz is an awful, despicable thing to do, and I'd revert the Nazi apologist and submit the case to whatever board is appropriate. I agree, such edits are serious incidents, there's no doubt about it. However, the OP in this case mentions such an edit (singular) as something that happened on another Poland-related article, made by some other editor. That made them uncomfortable and on the look-out for more vandalism (fully understood, such vile things should not happen on WP). However, the edit that this AN/I is about is something different: Should it be mentioned that Poland is the largest EU net beneficiary or not? That's what I meant by content dispute. BytEfLUSh Talk 04:50, 31 December 2017 (UTC)

As I mentioned on their talk page, I'm not extended confirmed so I cannot reply there. I will strike out my message there if you can add it to AN/I for me. Thanks in advance. BytEfLUSh Talk 05:03, 31 December 2017 (UTC)

Portal:Current events and revert warsEdit

Hi, wondering if you have anything useful to add to Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents#Content dispute for the Portal talk:Current events/2018 March 6 article. I'm asking you because I came across your name in previous discussions, and a search of your contrib history seems to confirm you have some involvement with the current events portal but I don't think you're one of the ones getting into insane edit wars.

‎List of The Powerpuff Girls episodesEdit

An easier way to revert to an earlier state of an article is to go to the history, click the date, which will take you the old revision of the article, edit that old revision and save. No need to undo every individual edit, that clogs the history and unnecessarily sends too many revert notifications. Or use WP:TWINKLE. So, no, you don't need to get to the earlier edits to undo. -- AlexTW 20:03, 14 March 2018 (UTC)

I thought you might be interested in this...Edit

I've been learning JavaScript so that I can automate things on Wikipedia. Though automating page construction is way down the road. In the meantime, while I'm learning, I've been building semi-automated (interactive) software tools.

One I've recently created is SearchSuite.

It enhances search results and makes copying/pasting results to lists (including outlines) from search results much easier.

It's also good as a general navigation aid, as it can reformat search results to 1 item per line, stripping out all details. Great for browsing lots of topics fast.

It can also sort.

Each feature is presented as a menu item to turn it on and off. And the script remembers the switch positions between pages.

I hope you find it useful. All feedback is welcome.     — The Transhumanist    06:31, 12 April 2018 (UTC)

Invitation to WikiProject PortalsEdit

The Portals WikiProject has been rebooted.

You are invited to join, and participate in the effort to revitalize and improve the Portal system and all the portals in it.

There are sections on the WikiProject page dedicated to tasks (including WikiGnome tasks too), and areas on the talk page for discussing the improvement and automation of the various features of portals.

Many complaints have been lodged in the RfC to delete all portals, pointing out their various problems. They say that many portals are not maintained, or have fallen out of date, are useless, etc. Many of the !votes indicate that the editors who posted them simply don't believe in the potential of portals anymore.

It's time to change all that. Let's give them reasons to believe in portals, by revitalizing them.

The best response to a deletion nomination is to fix the page that was nominated. The further underway the effort is to improve portals by the time the RfC has run its course, the more of the reasons against portals will no longer apply. RfCs typically run 30 days. There are 19 days left in this one. Let's see how many portals we can update and improve before the RfC is closed, and beyond.

A healthy WikiProject dedicated to supporting and maintaining portals may be the strongest argument of all not to delete.

We may even surprise ourselves and exceed all expectations. Who knows what we will be able to accomplish in what may become the biggest Wikicollaboration in years.

Let's do this.

See ya at the WikiProject!
