New discussion at Template:NihongoEdit

I have started a template discussion at Template talk:Nihongo#Display of "Hepburn", and would like to hear the opinions of the editors of this WP. — Goszei (talk) 02:30, 14 May 2020 (UTC)

I wanted to bump this discussion to gain further consensus (I proposed a rather sweeping change). — Goszei (talk) 03:24, 25 May 2020 (UTC)
Seeking comment again, as I have revised my proposal in a (hopefully more clear) way: Template talk:Nihongo#Revising my "Hepburn" display proposal. — Goszei (talk) 03:07, 22 June 2020 (UTC)

New discussion at Template:Nihongo footEdit

I am seeking comments at my template proposal here: Template talk:Nihongo foot#Template-protected edit request of 30 March 2020. — Goszei (talk) 19:52, 30 May 2020 (UTC)

Bumping this discussion. Simple formatting change, but needs consensus. — Goszei (talk) 03:55, 27 June 2020 (UTC)


This is highly underdeveloped. I was thinking of working on it but I'd imagine most sources are in Japanese. If anybody would be interested in collaborating on it let me know in a ping, thanks.† Encyclopædius 06:27, 13 June 2020 (UTC)

@Encyclopædius: I might be able to help a bit. I can help find Japanese sources and perhaps translate some stuff. Let me know what you need. Erynamrod (talk) 15:11, 18 June 2020 (UTC)

Yandros Sinuhe ref concernEdit

Hi WP Japan! I found the Yandros Sinuhe article earlier today and found out that it has no references for almost 5 years. I can't find good English language references either. Perhaps you can find some Japanese references for it? --Lenticel (talk) 02:11, 14 June 2020 (UTC)

I would say this is a hoax article. The kanji in the article (土方歳三) and many of the details like his lifetime (1835–1869), years of service, nickname, etc., seem to be straight up copied from Hijikata Toshizō. For someone who was supposedly a captain, there's no mention of him on the Shinsengumi article nor any Google results. Finally, "Yandros Sinuhe" is not a Japanese name and the creator's username is Yandros13. Opencooper (talk) 04:16, 14 June 2020 (UTC)
Thanks I'll set it up at WP:AFD --Lenticel (talk) 07:10, 14 June 2020 (UTC)

Request for comment in this WikiProjectEdit

If you are interested, there is a request for comment about an article in this WikiProject. Talk:Tripartite Pact#Request for comment: infobox. AnomalousAtom (talk) 10:44, 25 June 2020 (UTC)


If I can get more eyes looking at the articles listed at Talk:Elecom#Possible refs to use for the article to see if any of them will be good to help establish notability, that would be helpful. The articles are all in Japanese. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 08:52, 1 July 2020 (UTC)
