Hello SalaComMander, greetings and welcome to the Narutopedia! Thanks for your edit to the Eight Trigrams Sixty-Four Palms page.

We do hope that you will stay for a long time. Enjoy your stay as we work to become the best Naruto info site out there. BELIEVE IT!

If you're looking for something to do why not look over the Forums or more specifically Narutopedia Collaboration for a list of projects we're working on. And the Community portal has a lot of recent discussions and places to go listed on it.

Please leave a message on my talk page if I can help with anything! -- Dantman (Talk) 01:44, September 19, 2009

Re: Practice

It was brought up a while ago. Some very good points were brought up to use of UK English, the best of which (in my opinion), I'll paste below:

  • The USA is the only country major country in the world that uses US English.
  • British English is used, not only in the UK, but in (with minor variations) in Canada, Australia, Ireland, India, and many more countries. Hence why British English is also called International English.
  • Not only is British English used in the vast majority of English-speaking countries, it is also taught in the vast majority of non-English-speaking countries that teach English as a second language in any official manner. The European Union, Japan, and China, for instance.
  • This wiki caters to an international audience. Yes, the US makes up for a large portion of that audience, but that portion isn't even half of our entire readership.
  • Since we are a wiki that uses a Japanese series as the main source of its information and caters to an international audience, it makes no sense to use any other form of English besides British English.

We've had many problems with people always changing spellings from one to another, so we argued, picked one alternative, and stuck with it. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 18:54, October 9, 2011 (UTC)

We don't really use other wikis as a guideline on how we do things. If they have something we consider good emulating, we will (though I'm not sure we ever did that). Anyway, since this was discussed, the wiki no longer has such an uneven spelling through different article, or even in different sections in the same article, with only a couple words surfacing now and then, which means that the load of spelling edit-wars is now over, which was the main point of picking a specific spelling and sticking with it. I don't particularly favour a specific spelling over the other, but since this was the one chosen, the regular editors here enforce it, otherwise we'd simply fall back to pointless spelling wars.

I simply showed you arguments that were used when the discussion took place. As I said, I'm indifferent to which spelling is used, as long as it's used consistently through the wiki. The reason I showed you those is because you're not the first one to question about that matter, and when they were simply told "UK English won spelling wars", people asked for more explanation, and some simply kept on complaining. It's something that took way more time and discussion that it should have, that we try avoiding getting to the same proportions that it once did.

It was changed around the time that Kumogakure characters named after letters started growing in numbers, if I'm not mistaken. You can find details on this at Talk:Killer B and its two archives. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 21:04, October 9, 2011 (UTC)

Oh, and there might be something about revised Hepburn romanization as well, the one we use in this wiki, though I'm hopeless at explaining that bit. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 21:08, October 9, 2011 (UTC)
The only reference I have ever seen about the romanization of his name was a magazine cover, which had a drawing that may or may not come from Kishimoto himself. Someone linked to it in his talk page, I just saw the link and replied to it. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 21:21, October 9, 2011 (UTC)
