The Romanisation of Japanese language[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. The Hepburn-vs-Kunrei thing has been extensively debated before on Wikipedia, and the consensus has been that Hepburn alone in the Wikipedia standard. This is documented in the Manual of Style, and please take a look at the talk pages for the rationale before you start unilaterally converting Hepburn into Kunrei. Jpatokal 06:10, 17 Jan 2005 (UTC)

North Korea vs DPRK[edit]

please discuss and gain consensus before moving articles on a mass scale and counter to Wikipedia:Naming conventions (common names). --Jiang 11:08, 5 August 2005 (UTC)

You are vandalizing Wikipedia, I must ask you to cease and desist immediately. You cannot move articles on such a scale against commonly derived consensus among Wikipedians.--naryathegreat | (talk) 23:08, August 6, 2005 (UTC)

On a side note, thanks for contributing, just try not to push personal point of view (POV) on Wikipedia. In any case, Be Bold!--naryathegreat | (talk) 01:06, August 8, 2005 (UTC)

Once again, please stop changing North Korea to DPRK, as you did on Dokdo. If you believe the name should be different, take it up at Talk:North_Korea, rather than making changes against the existing consensus. --Reuben 18:55, 5 October 2006 (UTC)

Vandalism[edit]

This message is regarding the article September 11, 2001 attacks. Please stop adding nonsense to Wikipedia. It is considered vandalism. If you were just trying to experiment, then use the sandbox instead. Thank you. And BTW, Wikipedia is not a propaganda machine.Jareand 04:28, 23 October 2005 (UTC)

Why is my addition "according to the Bush regime" nonsense?Everton 08:58, 24 October 2005 (UTC)

Dicusssion[edit]

Everton, why are you moving the names of the Japanese politicians? What is going on? WhisperToMe 19:15, 22 March 2007 (UTC)

I think that the names should be correct Japanese. Long sound form is necessary.ĀĪŪĒŌEverton 07:39, 23 March 2007 (UTC)
Everton, please read Wikipedia:Manual of Style for Japan-related articles - we have decided that, for people, the most common romanized form of the name is to be used. Also, long "e" in LOC Hepburn is "ei" and long "i" in LOC Hepburn is "ii" WhisperToMe 19:02, 23 March 2007 (UTC)
