Wiktionary Link

Can someone update the template so that the bit for the Kanji letters automatically goes to Wiktionary ? --Speysider Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | My Wiki | Channel 19:38, November 1, 2012 (UTC)

You've got a lot of redundant parameters here; I would honestly just suggest using wikipedia's boilerplate nihongo template, unless I'm missing something. "lit meaning" and "eng" don't seem to be different, and if "fansub" differs from them...well, as an amateur translator, I'm not a fan of fansubs and would never ever give them the benefit of the doubt when a dictionary disagrees with them. Honestly, I think you could handle all of it by just having a boilerplate "opt1, source1", setup, without specifying each of them...in any case, I think the code you want is to replace with [[wiktionary:|]], but you'd have to be sure it's what you want done...a lot of japanese phrases aren't going to show up on wiktionary.(╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻ (ಠ_ೃ)Bully! 23:59, November 1, 2012 (UTC)

This is a template that is used in multiple wikis, and is sort of synchronised, so changes made to it at its source are carried on to other wikis that use it. I don't see the benefit of having kanji automatically link to wiktionary, since there are lots of things that don't necessarily have a page there. This template is also used for entire sentences, for example quotes, so I think it's a bad idea to do anything with this template. Lit meaning is actual literal meaning. An example of them being different in them is Earth Release: Sandwich Technique. There's a pun in the name, with the kanji and the pronunciation.

Just for the first part: I don't think the Tag Sync Bot is ever run nowadays.— UltimateSupreme ƒ(♫) 04:35 UTC, Friday, 2 November 2012
The update bot is never run anymore. I've edited templates like Looking for on here and they've never been updated by the bot. --Speysider Talk Page | My Image Uploads | Tabber Code | My Wiki | Channel 07:58, November 2, 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, because the person who can run it, Dantman is inactive.— UltimateSupreme ƒ(♫) 08:03 UTC, Friday, 2 November 2012

TagSyncBot should be sitting on hard drives unattached to any working computer right about now. ~ Daniel Friesen (DanTMan, Nadir Seen Fire) (Local TalkAnimanga Talk) 20:57, November 2, 2012 (UTC)
