Forums: Index Narutopedia Discussion Characters surname speculations

I been thinking about the problem with people adding unconfirmed surnames to some characters introduction, like Karin, Nagato and Tsunade. If the name in the introduction where replaced with a {{PAGENAME}} template, and with a filter preventing unconfirmed users from removing the template, the problem would be solved.

Maybe we could just incorporate the {{PAGENAME}} into {{translation}}(?)
But, imo it would be more efficient to just semi-protect them if people try adding it again and again.~ UltimateSupreme 06:31, April 9, 2013 (UTC)
Protecting a page means that the IP and non-confirmed can't edit the page at all, which would be against wiki's vision. Unless a page is targeted for constant vandalism, protection is just a temporary fix. Jacce | Talk | Contributions 08:33, April 9, 2013 (UTC)
For those characters, would removing the option to change their name be an option? I know Madara and Tsunade for example, his article doesn't have the option to change its name. For articles where you guys see the name being changed, just remove the option. Should a surname ever be revealed, the changes can be made in-article until a sysop arrives to rename the article.--Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 13:47, April 9, 2013 (UTC)
Nope. He is talking about the name in the article, not about moving pages.
Maybe we could do the same thing as we do with the Character infoboxes?~ UltimateSupreme 14:20, April 9, 2013 (UTC)
Ohhh, well the pagename template would work, it'd probably confuse people lol. What do you mean by do the same thing as the character infobox though? --Cerez365Hyūga Symbol(talk) 14:29, April 9, 2013 (UTC)

Place it somewhere else like Tsunade/Name, protect it and then transclude into the main article.~ UltimateSupreme 14:45, April 9, 2013 (UTC)

Any progress with this? Jacce | Talk | Contributions 05:00, April 17, 2013 (UTC)

Bump. Jacce | Talk | Contributions 16:38, April 26, 2013 (UTC)

So basically, this would result in putting it like this {{translation|{{PAGENAME}}|kanji|rōmaji}} in certain articles right? Go for it. Anything that helps prevent these pointless surname insertions is good. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 15:43, April 27, 2013 (UTC)
UltimateSupreme's idea seems more plausible IMO, that way it can't be changed whatsoever (using the page name magic word doesn't stop the issue at all) --Speysider Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | Channel 10:55, May 2, 2013 (UTC)

How about this?~ UltimateSupreme 12:35, May 2, 2013 (UTC)
