Note on potential site closure

As you guys might have heard, Chinese Moegirlpedia users are debating over a new Term of Use. As a part of the debate, this English Moegirlpedia (along with the Japanese site) may de closed and its data deleted.

To be fair, English Moegirlpedia might not be touched at all -- it has little influence, and the new Term of Use might not have such a big impact on it. The sad reality is, this site might be spared simply by being forgotten. But for those of us that cares deeply about our creations, this risk can be too great.

I recommend everyone to backup their contributions locally in preparation for the worst.

I will be pinging editors who made edits in the recent 90 days here: @Ktmsobs,Yumeto,Twilight200703,Pumpkin 233,HUELIJAH,全职法师骨灰级粉丝,Dahesor,Wujx3433,Ravenclaw OIer,Deldim,SeerElijah,C0perf1eld.

Hope to see you guys through this little storm!

Cheers and thoughts for EnMoe. --GYARI! GYARI! GYARI! ONE-SIX is no longer "公的驱逐舰"! Talk·Recent Edits 21:46, 21 December 2019 (CST)

A Translating Group

I am pretty new to EnMGP, but I found that if we could form a translating QQ group, the items would be transated faster. --RedstoneDave 02:37, 15 February 2020 (CST)

@红石小蝈 There is indeed a semi-official QQ group. The Group ID is 650556408. -- Frank-san (Leave a message)02:22, 16 May 2020 (CDT)

About Template:NeedsTranslating and Template:Waiting for Translation

I think these two templates are very much duplicates in their function... Should we ditch the latter?--GYARI! GYARI! GYARI! ONE-SIX is no longer "公的驱逐舰"! Talk·Recent Edits 16:23, 16 February 2020 (CST)

How about redirecting Template:Waiting for Translation to Template:NeedsTranslating? KONNO Yumeto 21:55, 21 February 2020 (CST)
Kind of what I mean by ditching it. So yeah, (+)Agree. --GYARI! GYARI! GYARI! ONE-SIX is no longer "公的驱逐舰"! Talk·Recent Edits 17:24, 22 February 2020 (CST)
(+)Agree--RedstoneDave 23:17, 28 February 2020 (CST)
Done Seems like no one disagreed, so I've redirected Template:Waiting for Translation to Template:NeedsTranslating. -- Frank-san (Leave a message) 09:16, 16 May 2020 (UTC)

Petition for archiving threads

As they are too old to do any good, I petition for archiving all threads on this page that have no new messages after 1 January 2020; if this petition pass, this thread should be archived too.

As we have no clear policy on archiving nor active patrols or SysOps, I figure that an unanimous support from active editors can do the trick.

(+)Agree -----CarryYe 插了句话(讨论) 19:06, 22 February 2020 (CST)

No one else objecting? --COVID be gone! One-Six A.K.A."公的驱逐舰" Talk·Recent Edits 22:22, 6 March 2020 (CST)
@红石小蝈 Please archive (cut-paste) all threads that have no responses later than 1 January 2020 to /Archive/Before_2020. We can probably start manually archiving every three months or six months from now on. --COVID be gone! One-Six A.K.A."公的驱逐舰" Talk·Recent Edits COVID be gone!

About "Surname-Given Name" or "Given Name-Surname"

As the title, Japanese characters like Misaka Mikoto are written as Mikoto Misaka in MGP, and that's a little wierd.

So shall we discuss about it?

Some possible ways (Using Hatsune Miku as example):

  1. Hatsune Miku
  2. Miku Hatsune
  3. HATSUNE Miku
  4. HATSUNE MIKU

--RedstoneDave 06:06, 18 March 2020 (CDT)

@红石小蝈 I personally Prefer "Familyname Givenname" for Japanese names (follow convention of the original language). Some Japanese characters use "Givenname Familyname" to follow English naming traditions; I think we can make them redirects, save for the rare circumstance that you have the equivalent of "White Steven" and "Steven White" both existing. I believe no one make name all caps unless they came all caps.
This is why we kinda need a Manual of Style, man. --COVID be gone! One-Six A.K.A."公的驱逐舰" Talk·Recent Edits 17:11, 15 May 2020 (CDT)
(+)Agree I would prefer "Hatsune Miku" or "Luo Tianyi" and redirect the rest. I also support the idea of a manual; it's absolutely necessary when it comes to things like this. There are so many things lacking in EnMGP… -- Frank-san (Leave a message) 07:31, 16 May 2020 (UTC)

Request to Delete Template:Quoted from other wikis

As seen in the previous discussion, these two templates have been merged, so it's unnecessary to keep Template:Quoted from other wikis anymore. -- Frank-san (Leave a message) 07:24, 16 May 2020 (UTC)

Request accepted.

Request to delete Did You Start Ogrodzenia Panelowe Drewniane Allegro For Passion Or Cash

Reason: Non-English content (seems in Portuguese). - C8H17OH (talk) 17:25, 20 May 2020 (CST)

I have just reported this article in the EnMGP Translate QQ group, so I suppose it would be soon deleted.
By the way, according to Google Translate, seems this article is written in Polish.——花生仔Ⓞ留言 13:50, 21 May 2020 (CST)
