Infobox image syntax[編集]

Is there an Japanese Wikipedia equivalent to English Wikipedia's en:WP:THUMBSIZE or en:WP:IBI page? On English Wikipedia it's pretty much common practice not to use the thumbnail syntax for infobox images because the most infobox templates and the Wikipedia software will automatically format the size of the infobox image based upon the device the reader is using. In addition, it also makes it easier for screen reader to "read" to infobox image's caption when the caption parameter is used because a thumbnail image typically requires an "alt_text" parameter be provided for thumbnail images whereas the infobox caption parameter doesn't and can be read by screen readers. Maybe the software and templates used for Japanese Wikipedia work differently, however, based upon this post here. Anyway, just curious for my own benefit. -- Marchjuly会話) 2019年11月19日 (火) 14:27 (UTC)

Hello, Last week was a Holodomor ホロドモール commemoration week.

Request for help on the Project Sakura Wars article[編集]

Hello. Regarding the Japanese article for Project Sakura Wars (新サクラ大戦), some spoilers to the game were added (especially with regards to the villain's true identity). While I'm not involved in the recent situation, it was recently reverted as per the notification from Sega, which was repeatedly re-added; I suspect that this might go against the relevant spoiler guidelines (Wikipedia:ネタバレ).

ラトコ・ヤネフ , can someone please expand and improve the article on Ratko Janev[編集]

Dear editors, can someone please expand and improve an article on ラトコ・ヤネフ Ratko Janev (Ратко Јанев), most distinguished Macedonian Academician here on Japanese Wikipedia. Academician prof. dr. Ratko Janev was a distinguished member of the Macedonian Academy of Sciences and Arts. In the period 1972 – 1987 he was a principal research fellow at the Institute of Physics, Belgrade where he made significant scientific breakthroughs in multiple fields of atomic physics and left lasting scientific legacy. Born in 1939, in Sandanski in Bulgaria, he finished a gymnasium in Skoplje in Republic of Macedonia, and received his BSc in physics in Belgrade, where he also earned his PhD and continued his research career – in addition to the Institute of Physics, he also worked at Vinča Institute of Nuclear Sciences and at what was then the Faculty of Sciences and Mathematics. Academician Janev was a leader in numerous researches and greatly contributed to the development of domestic atomic physics, leaving behind more than 600 scientific works, as well as numerous books and monographs. He was a member of various foreign academies, he also taught at Princeton, Oak Ridge and Brussels, and throughout his career he managed one of research programmes of controlled thermonuclear fusion at the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). In 2004 he received the Research Award from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation for the project "Modelling and Diagnostics of Fusion Edge/divertor plasma" on the understanding of cold boundary layer plasmas in nuclear fusion reactors, performed in collaboration with the Juelich Research Centre in Germany.31.14.73.77 2020年2月3日 (月) 16:39 (UTC)

Matcha vs. Matcha[編集]

Hello ja Wikipedians!
My question is if there is any name difference in Japan between the ground tea leaves and the beverage you make from said powder. When I search for "Matcha" on Google, the powder and the beverage comes up alike. The article on en.wikipedia however only talks about " finely ground powder". Since where I live people use it for both I wonder if there a special name for the hot tea or is Matcha also both in Japan? Thanks for your help! --D-Kuru会話) 2020年2月9日 (日) 17:04 (UTC)

Hi, @D-Kuru:, interesting question, and Matcha Market Analysis By Grade gives you an outline that it is rather recent Maccha has attracted interests from outside Japan. You can say even domestic consumptions of powdered green tea as casual beverage is rather new, or I guess it is safe to note that maccha is applied to both the powder and the drink in Japan as well recently. Maccha抹茶 written in Chinese characters has the first letter Matsu originally been attributed to "applying medication", indicating it has been used for herbal medication before medieval age, which you don't remember today.
The following is my personal idea, or it may reflect my Osaka area background. Usually, when you say Maccha (till 1990s), it meant higher priced powdered green tea. The "thin tea", or what you will enjoy at most tea ceremonies, are called usucha薄茶, applying smaller portions of powdered tea, while for "thick tea", or koicha濃茶 using top notch powdered tea in generous portions; they are hard to sip unless you make unpleasant slurping sound aloud.
The instant maccha sold as sweetened and premixed in small satchels is a trendy consumers' item. Before major franchised coffee shops started offering green tea flavored milk/soy milk drinks, a Kyoto tea shop claims they originated casual powdered tea for everyday consumption, but has never been called maccha. --Omotecho会話) 2020年2月15日 (土) 15:32 (UTC)

Getting Japanese-language sources for the Concrete High School girl case and the manga 17-sai[編集]

Re: the article on the Concrete High School Girl Case (a 1988 kidnapping resulting in death of the victim in 1989) and the manga en:17-sai. (17歳。) (cf: not en:17 Years for Saori Minami’s song), I'm looking to see if there is a Japanese source that definitively states that 17 Years was influenced by the concrete case.

Also the English version of the concrete case does not use the best sources (some personal blogs at times) because there is a lack of reliable sources in English. The Anglophone media seems to have not covered the case that much in the late 1980s/early 1990s, though there are more recent articles from The Japan Times.

Thanks, WhisperToMe会話) 2020年3月23日 (月) 20:56 (UTC)

返信 (WhisperToMe宛) , hi, allow me to fix your link pointing to manga (ja:17歳。), not Saori’s song. While the jawp article (&oldid=75091546 dated T10:54:38; 22 November 2019 (UTC9 by ジョニー雷電) lacks reliable sources, it states that the manga has no direct link to the juvenile crime case itself but modeled after it for manga’s plot motif, no citation given: since I am not quite familiar with manga of this genre, can you please share why you think the homicide case and manga story is closely related? That would help me expand the range of biblio database I would look into. FYI, I quote from jawp article as:
  • ...「女子高生コンクリート詰め殺人事件」をプロットのモチーフとしているが、同事件を取り上げたものではなく接点は無い。...” unquote.
The other thing I am not quite sure is, as you are fully aware, manga in Japan is to some degree “edited” or retouched when reformatted into Single title単行本Tankobon. Let me indicate that jawp article states that “17-sai.” was published as a serial in a magazine, and it had a special column associated to it and an invited guest commentator exchanged ideas with the plot writer Seiji Fujii on recreating the psychology in manga against the real crime. What bothers me is inside the parentheses, and it reads to me that conversation was dropped from the Tankobon context and not published in a fixed form. Does it indicate anything to you?
  • quote “...連載時は著名人と原作者による劇中の心理感と現実の少年犯罪についての対談コラムが掲載されていた(単行本では再編集されたうえで掲載)。...” unquote.
The jawp article has a commercial film about the homicide case under “see also” section, which makes me get puzzled a bit, but you might have better idea how crime-manga-film correlated to each other in this case..
I will try anyway some biblio data search, and maybe you have any particular field you wish to cover with citation? --Omotecho会話) 2020年4月17日 (金) 22:40 (UTC)
@Omotecho: Thanks for the feedback! One can tell that inspiration came from the concrete girl case because various details of the concrete girl case and 17-sai together (the victim being attacked by one person and then being given a fake offer of assistance from another person so she can be kidnapped, the forced phone call to the parents, the unwillingness of other people to help the girl).
As for the guest commentator, I read an unofficial scanlation of the 17-sai. manga but did not see this conversation, so it is possible that one may have to buy a copy of the original magazine to see it. I'm hoping Japanese libraries store copies of the magazines.
As for the information I would like to have, generally the aspects covered in secondary sources, such as why the series was created, what the author hoped to portray, and also opinions from critics of literary works.
WhisperToMe会話) 2020年4月24日 (金) 19:33 (UTC)
返信 (WhisperToMe宛) , too bad libraries has been closed since mid-March in my town, and I have to admit and retire from this conversation before library reopens. Tried on the web if “17-sai.” has copyright friendly digitized version, but not avail. We need a hardcopy to confirm to cite what you wish to write, no? Or I am not 100% sure without any source if the creator of “17-sai.” totally denies that his imagination was influenced by a criminal case or not, just suggested what I read on jawp is suggesting another view, but that mention also lacks citation to which issue of the manga magazine. Maybe you have an access to database behind paywall, and look up the metadata which issue has that interview ?
I have tried two bilingual biblio database, National Diet Library and CiNii. For NDL, couldn’t find the manga magazine we discuss here. For CiNii, database of database for university libraries: writings on/related to “17-sai.” by academics zero hit. CiNii do source historical manga magazines, but not that magazine we discuss here. I have not tried website for Tachikawa City Manga Library立川漫画図書館Tachikawa Manga Toshokan since they mostly collects tankobon.
Off topic: when you feel unfair that global manga readers don’t have access to some bonus contents, think this way: the book publishing system in Japan has a unique law for paper media, a saihan-ho再販法, that was designed to support publishers’ monetary flow, which gave reasons to reuse manga contents as tankobon to make more money, when creators’ copyright had been limited toward putting their works on manga magazines and that was all. Maybe it was Tezuka Osamu who willingly agreed to publish tankobon for his stories without commission (payment), but no source at hand here again. Cheers, and please keep safe, --Omotecho会話) 2020年4月25日 (土) 16:15 (UTC)
Thank you so much! I'm happy to wait until the libraries reopen. My family and I in the United States have been healthy and safe, and my friends have been healthy and safe too. WhisperToMe会話) 2020年4月29日 (水) 01:57 (UTC)

Moving files to Commons and deleting files that have been moved to Commons[編集]

Hi! I do not speak Japanese so I have to use Google Translate.

I asked about files and Commons here: Wikipedia‐ノート:Wikimedia_Commonsに画像をアップしよう#Moving_files_to_Commons.

It was suggested, that I also asked here where there is a better chance to hear from English speaking users.

I had 2 questions:

  1. Is there any reason why files are not deleted when they have been moved to Commons?
  2. Is there any organized project to move files to Commons?

If files are moved to Commons they can be used on other wikis too. And if the local files are deleted it is easier to locate the files, that have not been moved yet.

Japanese Wikipedia have a lot of files so I have no chance to check or move them all alone. Especially because I do not speak Japanese and have to work really slow. So I hoped to find local users to work with. --MGA73会話) 2020年6月6日 (土) 18:10 (UTC)

Global spammer[編集]

I am an administrator and checkuser of Wikipedia Lusophone (Portuguese language) and I noticed the existence of a group of accounts that create promotional articles about companies, applications, biographies, etc. These pages have references and are well structured; however, most sources are promotional (paid content) or primary.

Well, many are being eliminated in English, Portuguese and Spanish; their versions were identical (the same sources). Therefore, I request that you review the following pages or at least help me in bringing the case to the attention of the community; some pages were created more than five years ago.

In Wikipedia in Italian, Spanish and Portuguese the pages maintain (or did) the same structure with identical sources; suboptimal writing.

Hello and I am very happy to be a part of the Japanese Wikipedia. I have few questions about the Japanese Wikipedia so if anyone can help in this then I will be very grateful. Can you please tell me if I can translate an article from any other language Wikipedia into Japanese and create the page here provided that the topic meets the notability guidelines? Thanks, --Hissamelriys会話) 2020年7月31日 (金) 07:39 (UTC)

Looking for participants for a WMF study[編集]

The Wikimedia Foundation is conducting a study on how patrollers address edits made from IP addresses. As part of this study, we would like to interview any users who frequently review new edits, in order to learn more about what challenges they face and what kinds of information they need in order to work. These interviews will be conducted with an interpreter, so English language ability is not a requirement. If you are interested, please contact clo@wikimedia.org. Thank you for your time and assistance!
