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.
Hope to see you guys through this little storm!

- Hey guys, don't worry for now, this wouldn't happen soon according to the admins. Thanks OneSix-san for the heads up though! -- Frank-san (Leave a message) 09:05, 16 May 2020 (UTC)
A Translating Group
- @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)
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)
- 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.

- @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):
- Hatsune Miku
- Miku Hatsune
- HATSUNE Miku
- HATSUNE MIKU
- @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)
What's wrong with the Edit???

- 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.—— 13:50, 21 May 2020 (CST)
