"Translation" is a misleading parameter, but that option is meant to display other ways cards have been referred to, or for direct translations. Based on the kanji, and not the hiragana, it could also be read as "Original Governor", however, in the Aqua Force lores, the term is "Marshal" instead, and thus "Original Marshal" or in this case, "Founding Marshal".
uuhhhh but my point is that very kanji pair means "marshal" in standard Japanese. Hiragana has nothing to do with this.
I'd say the fact it includes the kanji for "origin" is simply a coincidence that Bushi used to make a pun, but regardless this should go in the trivia page if anything, because "Blue Wave Marshal, Valeos" is a direct translation already.
It's also wikia policy to usually let a wikia run by using their own rules.
Usually here, if a page is locked, it's a silent "this is what we decide upon, if you want it to be changed, contact an admin", or "this isn't finalized yet, just leave it for the moment, it'll be changed once we get an official info".
It's against wikia policy to lock every page. Some pages are fine to keep locked, such as the main page, or for more popular wikis, to prevent vandalism.
Some pages I keep locked, like the Lock page. With the recent anti-lock trend, and with some people refusing to read the comprehensive rules, I try to keep that page as updated as possible with the comprehensive rules, and the page is locked to prevent salty players from trying to add false information about cards like Ange or Galfilia not being anti-lock.
I may bark and bite but if anyone ever has questions about why pages are locked or why things are deleted, or questioning the info we have on pages like the Valeos bit (which I unlocked the page when I made the trivia page), feel free to ask me or another mod/admin. As Hiki said, it's more like "the admins are making a judgement to correct this" kind of thing. Doesn't matter who's right or who's wrong, what matters is that we try to keep things as correct as possible.
Which sometimes involves locking pages cause people be salty.
I understand that, but since I was recently promoted to admin on the yugioh fanon wiki, I vaguely recall it going something along the lines of "locking page is a power that must be used sparigly, and not for mundane reasons like preventing edit wars that had yet to happen"
I'm not critizing mind you, I'm just somewhat concerned that in the short time I've been here the administation has been a tad heavy-handed at times.
I just wanna help, but its not going to work if pages get locked at soon as I make an edit that just one mod disagrees with.
If you would ask on the yugioh wiki, in the last 5 years I've been a extremely active helper with tens of thousands of contributions in many different areas (often concerning the Japanese language too), but naturally I would find difficult repeating that feat here if every single edit of mine is questioned.
Ah, it's good to have admin of another big-name wikia here.
Well, yugioh wikia has gone longer than cf wikia, so I guess our experiences are different?
Usually, making a new page (tips, trivia) are the ones that people can do without any problem. The problem comes from deleting existing data, which exist because of a reason (unless it's a real mistake, in which you're more than welcome to edit).
The ones that will get touched frequently will be; if you make rulings page, and renaming cards which is yet to be translated to english.
As for this one, I'm more to respecting the person's decision to put it there, since it won't be there without a reason; we're quite good when it comes to translation.
I'm sorry if we come as being quite "closed door" by your perspective, but it just shows that we have a long way to go.
Given that he has more edits on Wikia than both of you combined, most of which being for a wiki that's frankly far superior to this one, I'd strongly suggest you let him do his thing.
You especially Vere have been reverting so many edits lately that honestly didn't need it, and I don't make a big deal out of it for the most part because it's generally insignificant but in the case of XBrain you really shouldn't be doing that.
Hm that might be on that wiki then. I know locking a lot of pages is frowned upon, but I haven't heard anything about preventative locking.
I tend to review every edit made by people who have not gained my trust yet. Sometimes I miss some stuff, but I do take it seriously. If I do find the edit unnecessary or questionable, I will undo the edit, and then sometimes contact the user depending on whether or not their edit actually has some validity, and I myself am misinformed. I can't know everything, so I will ask most of the time. Some edits I undo are just because they're unnecessary, like rewordings, or because the edits are so massive I don't have time to review it all in that instance.
When it comes to deleting stuff from pages, then I might be a bit more harsh, such as locking a page, or warning the user if its considered vandalism. I may not like wikia policies, but I value correct information and continuity when it comes to grammar, formatting, etc. This may be a wiki where everyone can edit but that doesn't mean it has to be a mess, especially since Vanguard has a worldwide following, and as this is an English wiki, we have users who may not speak English well, so if they intend to edit the wiki, some corrections in spelling and grammar need to be made, or undoing their edits in the rare case of redundancy.
You are free to edit as much as you luck. As a content mod, it is simply my role to review and if it needs to be undone or fixed, I will do so as needed, but I will also follow up with a question as to why the edit was made, I'll mention how things are done here, etc. If you feel like one of my decisions was wrong, feel free to message me and we can have some discussion.
@Koutei: Jeez boi, lemme finish talking before jumping to conclusions :v
@Xoph: When was the last time you ever said anything nice about anyone :p ?
If have to be honest, the formatting here *is* kind of a mess, with all that unnecessary "br" tagging after every section, no spacing after asterisks in a list (which as a non-anglophone-born honestly makes it difficult to discern bullets in huge ones like the Stride how-to), and other stuff.
And when I tried to clean up the Ultimate Stride page as an example, I also got a revert and a vaguely snark-sounding explanation that didn't explain anything besides "that's what we have always done".
Let's not argue on what looks better or whatsnot; it's not going anywhere.
EDIT: Also, honestly, if I come to yugioh wiki and complain about all the formats there, you'll not see me in good light, no? That's what you're building here, and that's not a good step. You'll be seen as an intruder.
A good way of doing it is to rise through the rank and give a suggestion on changing format, in which we usually do. Once your suggestion is approved, no one is going to complaint.
Otherwise, it'll end up with your edits getting reverted right and left, and there's nothing you can say about it.
