encyclopedia #105160 should we really split this to the precise wording? Doesn't this basically refer to all the other straps too

Hello,
i don't know if a similar question has been answered before, but:
item #454242 i know that there's a rule not to split the bundled media from the media, but is something like this allowed?

another question (´・ω・`)

since characters follow origins (e.g. Fate Testarossa & Fate T. Harlaown), I suppose it would be the same for Kitamura Suzu (Shinsengumi Imon Peacemaker) & Yamatoya Suzu (Peace Maker Kurogane - manga, drama CD & upcoming anime). However, the origin Peace Maker Kurogane in the db refers to the sequel manga and the first anime, which actually follows the prequel Shinsengumi Imon instead. Do I create a new chara Yamatoya and link as alter ego for Kitamura, and keep both chara in the same origin (PMK) or what?


Muntoe (2 days ago) #12051447I blame this on the fact the Re-Ment line has been added for years by many different users. I certainly don't have the time or enthusiasm to go through 2000+ miniature entries to make them all the same but if you can find an ambitious VIB or someone willing to do it then let me know and I'll ask staff to see if we can just change them all to English names. They're already here by exception anyway so I don't see the problem with adding one more exception to this line lol.

I'll do it ୧(๑•̀ᗜ•́)૭

imo it'll be harder to find when everything's English though. To search them you'll have to guess the exact translation that may not be by Re-Ment. Like the one I linked item #452934, originally "ついつい買っちゃう", if it were me I'd have translated it to "Always End Up Buying These", so the English title will still depend on how it gets translated noticed your latest comment

Muntoe (2 days ago) #12055176These look too generic to be added to the database.
As for the Re-ment I saw hikari post in the Tsuki club about the English part and how it may not work ((mfc link)). If nobody responds there then I'll bring it up to staff and maybe between the both of you we can get everything fixed for good.

Thanks. I thought it might be too generic, but figured I'd ask to make sure. XD Re-ments are a tricky thing, but if something gets worked out let me know. I'll be happy to help however I can. ^.^

I wouldn't mind changing them all to english. It might take awhile, but it might be beneficial to do so. I know I've seen multiple people uploading duplicates because they look for enteries and don't find them. I've almost done it myself a few times. I don't have the ability to actually change non-drafts so I'm not sure if it would even be helpful, orz I've done some edits for old drafts in the past, I think the only problem might be re-ments that don't really have a definite english translation.

Also, can these be added to the database (if I didn't miss them)? [ext link ]

kanjiaragaki (3 days ago) #12016797So there really isn't a set rule then. Thank you both for the answers.
It'd be nice if things in the same product line could have the same classifications atleast though... orz

Also IIRC mascots are allowed in the database but some don't have an origin. E.g. encyclopedia #10568 only has a character added, same with encyclopedia #88634.

Thank you so much, Muntoe.

I'll go ahead and edit the entries with the mascot.

hikaridranz (5 days ago) #11923752Currently there's a mix of both romaji & translated titles/names (classifications too) for Re-Ment trading figures. Officially, only certain sets have English names; most of them are in Japanese. If we follow official names, only a few series should have English, but now depending on who's adding the set, the ones with no official English sometimes get translated and sometimes stay as romaji. Should we make them consistent (all JP as in mfc's naming rules, or English when it's officially given, or all translated for easier identification?)IIRC the English Re-Ment should stay in English but everything else should be romanized if it comes from an original Japanese name (katakana excluded). Looking through them though there's literally hundreds of incorrectly named entries, I wonder if it would be easier to name everything in English since nobody is going to look up "almond jelly" in Japanese lol item #411493 ...maybe bring this up in the help thread? I'm honestly not sure in this case.

KiraYamato44 (4 days ago) #11963953I have a quick question for a MOD to answer if they can. I added some cafe merch (encyclopedia #108429), and this set includes Parco's mascot Parcoala. I left the entries in draft mode until I can verify whether or I also need to add the mascot to all these entries, as well as the database. I'm not really sure about the mascot rules.
Thank you so much in advance. XD
