I looked on a single page (Nara Shikamaru), and it is RIDDLED with side-tracking (such as explaining details that do not fit the section), a lack of links to characters (I did like 10 linkings before I gave up on it), and spelling...

Spelling: Some people put stuff like Kankuro, like what they looked like originally. That's understandable. But what is missing is the accent line, in this case, over the "o." To put the accent to the word, you put a "u" after the letter that should be accented, in this case "Kankurou." I am constantly bothered by this lack of information that people put when they are putting in info.

Also, I recognize ENTIRE PASSAGES that came from Wikipedia. THIS IS CALLED PLAGIARISM! Anyone who plagiarizes are taking others work without giving credit to the original source. -Dubtiger, 6:57pm EST

Wikipedia and the Narutopedia are licensed under the GFDL. Place a section at the bottom of that article called sources and give it an external link to the wikipedia article and it will be fine. In the cases of the accented words, the words should use the accents in the body, and the title of the article should use them to. But it is also required to make a redirect from the non accented words to the accented one. Currently we don't have a charinsert box, which makes it understandable as to why this is occuring, once I have my sysop status I will copy over the box and place it where it needs to go.

Well, I was planing on doing something like that but I thought that it would be too troblesome so I created a Billography. We could delete that and create a section for the Billography.

I suggest we set up an accented letter chart like on Wikipedia or we go with the stuff such as "Kankurou." —This unsigned comment was made by Dubtiger (talkcontribs) on 19:32, 14 February 2007.
Wikia has recently setup the Charinsert box. If you go to the Central Wikia and edit a page, you'll notice a small box with inserts. The system is made so the box can be setup by placing what should go there in a page in the MediaWiki namespace. The charinsert box on Wikipedia has accented characters as part of the Charinsert box. What you didn't understand of what I said, is that I'm going to copy the charinsert box which has the accented characters over to here from wikipedia, when I have my sysop status. Got it?
