|Welcome to the Touhou Wiki!|
Thanks for putting that template back, I must have missed it when I was fixing vandalized pages. I fixed the image problem, you had an Image: [File:xxxx but for posting an image in a template it is normally image = [Image:xxx, just for your future knowledge. VS3025 15:53, March 16, 2011 (UTC)
The New Wiki
It's really up to you whether or not you use the new wiki. You might make a few edits there and see if your comments are appreciated, you will just have to remember that they are a little (read: a lot) more strict about what can be posted in regards to a character/whatever.
Honestly, I don't tell anybody to use one place or the other, I use this site for most of my needs, and if it isn't here I check the other wiki. But a few people like to cause a bit of drama and want people to only come to the other page (even though there is probably enough room on this internet for both).
The link to the other wiki is in several locations on that page. Like I said, check it out, see if you like it, don't be afraid to use both sites.
Now, if you could help me out for a minute. You say lots and lots of people have told you this? Were most of these via e-mail? If they were via e-mail, could you give me a sample of what was sent? A list of name from the users who sent them? If not, don't worry about it.
Anyway, sorry for your confusion, feel free to ask if you have anymore questions.
VS3025 14:11, July 1, 2011 (UTC)
- Ok, thanks a lot for sharing that information with me. I figured something like that was happening but I didn't actually have any proof. I'll talk to wikia and try and see if something can be done so that doesn't happen to other users.
- Anyway, I apologize for any annoying e-mails or confusion this brought you. Some of the users there want a fight with this wiki but they can fight with a wall for all I care, because I'm not interested in arguing about which wiki is better.

Working on some things
I was wondering if you would be interested in giving your opinions on some changes we were thinking about making. Note, you don't have to get involved if you don't want, but we could always use another thought or opinion on any changes we are going to make.
We were thinking about changing the color scheme and discussing it at Forum:Color Scheme if you are interested in sharing your thoughts or ideas about that.
I am also trying to solicit information about improving character profiles and other pages at Forum:Characters, pictures, and fan work... if you had any thought about that.
Anyhow, I'm just going to try and solicit more opinions from people who visit here so we can improve things and I figured I'd start with you since we've been in contact recently.
As I said before, it's fine if you'd rather not be involved, but I'd like to hear your opinion on issues like this if possible. Anything from just a suggestion about the colors we use to ideas about layout, nothing is too big or too small.
Thanks for your time, VS3025 19:19, July 7, 2011 (UTC)
One of the changes
Here is an example of one of the changes we're working on that I'd love to hear feedback about.
Here is the new Aya Shameimaru page.
Compared to the old Aya page: http://touhou.wikia.com/index.php?title=Aya_Shameimaru&oldid=148541
Basically it's an attempt to break down a character page into smaller segments so we aren't running one huge page half a mile long with information. It allows people to find what they want a little quicker and lets people making edits just work on the section they want to edit.
Anyway, if you get some free time let me know what you think! VS3025 17:17, July 8, 2011 (UTC)
- To find the official profiles, click profiles at the top of the page. --Imanie 03:52, July 9, 2011 (UTC)
- Yep. All of the information is still there, it is just under each tab at the top of the page. So the facts are under Fun Facts, and the official profiles are under the profiles section (I just had to shorten the name due to space considerations). VS3025 04:21, July 9, 2011 (UTC)
- I can try to change the color. I don't know if the links should be lighter or darker. Maybe lighter so they stand out more. Also, do you have a signature set up for yourself? So everytime when you sign, it pops up with your name and all? If not, I can try to make you one :) and tell you how to implement it. --Imanie 11:48, July 9, 2011 (UTC)
- I changed it just a little. Are the links a little easier to see now, or do you have another color you think would be better? Actually, I might just change the link to blue or something >.> --Imanie 12:45, July 9, 2011 (UTC)
I think the problem with people offering their opinions and doing it through, I'm guessing, email, is that we don't know who's saying it, if they're really invested in this wiki, if they're normal helpers of the wiki, or if they're just trolling to get people to move.
We've asked about the color layout and offered different opinions on colors and left it out there for people to choose from for a while, but no one else joined in on the discussion here.
We also talked about changing the way the character pages were set up since people decided to come over and talk about how unorganized things were. So we discussed changing the way pages were set up here.
The problem with offering help in the way of tearing everything someone's done down is there is nothing constructive to build it back up with. Why is the layout ugly? What would make it look better? What colors would the choose? If the seperate pages are so inconvenient, what would keep it more organized, have they really tried it yet? Is it really that incnvenient when you know EXACTLY where the information is held? And, on the biggest note, how come they didn't jump into the conversations when it was going on? I know, for one, that the seperation on pages like that works really well because I've been to two wikis (that I regularly go to) and they both use it, and it keeps their pages very organized with the large information they store and they have tons of users that go there each day and put in their own opinions.
A lot of ideas we've implemented have been used here. Why? Because it's a very successful, huuge wiki, and I enjoy the anime XP.
If your anonymous tipper could actually come here and give the construction to back up his words, we'll talk to him and think it over. If anyone spoke on the many pages we've set up to speak about all these things, that would be nice to. But, right now, it just sounds like people from the start that said it wouldn't work or it sucked 'just beacuse.' We neeed real substance to go on.
I'm not adverse to chaning things on the wiki. We're all about change here, as seen by the slight wiki changes everyday until we get things right. But what you sent us from someone was not constructive, it was just criticism. --Imanie 16:36, July 11, 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for adding those. I just started on the music section late last night so I only really had a chance to do a test page and the template on Alice's page, I never got around to actually adding much, so that was a good start.
Aya Shameimaru/Music is my test example for this.
I'm not saying it has to look exactly like that (as a matter of fact, your pages are fine) but if you want to embed one song per character, that is fine. I just don't want to do more than one per page because having too many embedded videos clutters things up. I'd also prefer if the embedded video represented the original song and not a remix.
That being said, you don't have to embed anything if you don't want to. If you do want to but don't know how, look at the code for the Aya page to see how to do it. (All you really have to do is replace the part of the youtube link with the link to the new video, everything else can be directly copied).
Anyway, I think the music section is a good opportunity for people to share links to their favorite versions of songs, so feel free to put down any you like.
VS3025 15:32, July 14, 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, it's fine if you use that. VS3025 13:05, July 17, 2011 (UTC)
Touhou MUCK wiki
Honestly, I don't really know anything about it as I've never been there. I went there to see what it was and it seems to be defunct. VS3025 02:14, July 21, 2011 (UTC)
If you are still getting unwanted messages via this wiki, remember to write down the names of who sends them. I can let Wikia know and they will do a Wikia-wide ban of that user. I could prevent people from sending e-mails via this wiki but they could just go to another wiki and send it from there, so I really have to be able to let wikia know who is doing the unsolicited e-mail in order for it to be effective.
VS3025 15:05, July 27, 2011 (UTC)
Yes, I think that would be fine. I had thought about it before but hadn't really decided one way or the other. Just make sure it says stage music instead of theme.
VS3025 15:19, August 2, 2011 (UTC)
If you could tell me where you found it I could change it to have a transparent backgroud, and since this is the first time we speak, nice to meet you ^^ Alanomega 17:27, August 5, 2011 (UTC)
I was wondering if there wasn't an specific site but I found a good one using google. Alanomega 03:09, August 7, 2011 (UTC)
Ah, I forgot to do that, thanks. Alanomega 05:01, August 7, 2011 (UTC)
Hello, and good morning/afternoon/evening or whatever it is for you too :) (it was afternoon here when I saw the message). Well, of course as expected from a good Touhou fan I played Ten Desires, and what can I say about it hmmm... I think the profiles for the characters were huge! They never needed such a big backstory before so I thought this was a bit forced; the game play is fun (I like that Youmu is back, and as a main character ^^) I liked the new spirits collecting system for a different "bomb" the trance, finally the C button is useful, I thought just Cirno would know how to use it. About the new characters... I liked them, I didn't feel as much impact as the old ones but liked them (not Seiga and Soga very much, but still ok with these two). To put it short after so much useless blabbering from my part, I liked it. Alanomega 16:54, August 17, 2011 (UTC)
I would also like to read your opinion, if that isn't a bother. Alanomega 03:24, August 21, 2011 (UTC)
I agree that ZUN's drawing skills got a little better, just comparing Yuyuko with her old versions you can see it easily. And yes, they have quite unique abilites like Miko's power of listening to ten people speaking at the same time. I miss deathbombing. Alanomega 03:52, August 21, 2011 (UTC)
I have a little question abput those images you are adding, are they form the other wikia? If not ok, if they are I can take some for here (and can you tell me the ones that are from there). I just am trying to avoid any future troubles. Like the great sage once said: Trouble is bad. lol. Thanks for reading my annoying blabbering ^^ Alanomega 01:29, September 10, 2011 (UTC)
I'll get this added back in soon. I was messing around with it but I didn't have any luck getting it to work, so I'll ask User:Imanie about it later. Where do you think the alternate spelling would best fit in the profile. We can put it in the top, make a new section for it in the information box, or make it a collapsible. VS3025 12:40, September 6, 2011 (UTC)
Ten Desires Spell Pictures
Well, everything is fine then, good job :). Also, we all feel like Aya when taking those images xD. I personally think that I am playing the new Touhou 12.5, with the Ten Desires cast. Alanomega 02:44, September 10, 2011 (UTC)
- Blame me for his whole mix up. He's innocent, innocent I tell you! I'll also apologize here for not making the song of the day Beloved Tomboyish Girl. Two mistakes in 1 day... I normally make one a month! --VS3025 12:45, September 10, 2011 (UTC)
Thanks ^^. Good job with all the edits you have been doing these days too! Alanomega 01:48, September 15, 2011 (UTC)
- Thanks for reverting that little bit of vandalism! -- 21:15, October 2, 2011 (UTC)
Just something I noticed. At Ana's profile (first line) it says "Nana was was a satori" should it really have two 'was'? Alanomega 23:32, October 2, 2011 (UTC)
Haha, not really, if it wasn't a fan character you made I probably wouldn't have noticed that. Alanomega 01:40, October 3, 2011 (UTC)
I'm working on it as we speak! If you want to do a real time chat with me, we can use wikia's chat or you can skype me. If you choose the latter, send me an email from here so no one spams your skype XD --Imanie 00:45, October 3, 2011 (UTC)
About that title, I wasn't very sure if a music title would apply to it. I thought it wouldn't, but since you agree everything is okay. Alanomega 00:27, October 11, 2011 (UTC)
That "issue" has now been taken care of. --VS3025 23:45, October 13, 2011 (UTC)
Hi, I just wanna say that i love your fanmade characters, you really have talent. ^^ XFujiwaraNoMokoux 09:43, October 17, 2011 (UTC)
Just a message >.O
I also love to write stories xD But i'm not Japanese, i live in Europe x'D Just keep up the good work c:
XFujiwaraNoMokoux 09:51, October 17, 2011 (UTC)
You are welcome ^^
No problem, you are welcome 8D
XFujiwaraNoMokoux 09:56, October 17, 2011 (UTC)
It seems my account is having some problem sending messages... quite weird. So can you send me another way to talk to you? By the way what happened with your profile??
Thanks ;o but if it isn't rude to ask, why is your profile going to be deletedd? AlannahFujiwara 00:10, October 29, 2011 (UTC)
Oh wow, you are quite a talented editor. Your profile looks colorful... me gusta, I like colors.
And, you have another page, the 'old characters'? Am I missing something? AlannahFujiwara 07:50, November 2, 2011 (UTC)
I see that the picture of your profile is Tachibana Kanade, so, do you watch Angel Beats too? :3
XFujiwaraNoMokoux 11:07, November 7, 2011 (UTC)
Oh yes! Kanade is very epic! She's my favorite character! By the way, how can you input colours in your name? It looks very cool..
XFujiwaraNoMokoux 11:12, November 7, 2011 (UTC)
Actually, that wasn't confusing xD Thank you very much :3
XFujiwaraNoMokoux 14:14, November 7, 2011 (UTC)
Thank you very much for sorting out the images for me. :)
Tenshi's Shadow 08:58, November 12, 2011 (UTC)
Create a page with the name you want to redirect from.
For example, using Aya....
I make a page called Aya, to make it a redirect I would put in it
#Redirect [[Aya Shameimaru]]
Aya will now redirect to the Aya Shameimaru page.
--VS3025 00:15, November 22, 2011 (UTC)
Hi, I saw your characters and i simply love Kiou, can you tell me where you get that image from? Or who illustrated it? :3
XFujiwaraNoMokoux 16:07, November 23, 2011 (UTC)
I just wanted to let you know, on your fun facts for ChocolateLily's unofficial profile, you mention that Luna is the name of Earth's moon, minus the "r." Actually, Luna IS the name of the moon. Lunar means "of or pretaining to Luna." Lunar Shuttle is a shuttle to use on Luna, Lunar Science is moon science, etc. Just letting you know. --Kagetsuwamono There are three kinds of people in this world: Those who can count, and those who can't. 08:47, November 24, 2011 (UTC)
- Wouldn't really mind, but since you went through the trouble to tell me, I'll change it. ★Nazrin★ ~ (talk) 10:01, November 24, 2011 (UTC)
Thanks 8D ~Flan-Chan :3~
Hey, I saw the picture of Sanamu Hakuya. That's Meimu ;O Do you know Meimu? :3
XFujiwaraNoMokoux 09:59, December 1, 2011 (UTC)
Yes, i saw, it was a mix of their names. Meimu is also one of my favorite fanmades, besides Mitori xD
Oh yes, she's also a very cool fanmade. 8D But i also like Maybell, she's cute and scary at the same time. And Karen remembers me of Tojiko :O I don't know why xD
XFujiwaraNoMokoux 10:22, December 1, 2011 (UTC)
Haha. I even can't beat Alice in IaMP at Lunatic x3
XFujiwaraNoMokoux 10:32, December 1, 2011 (UTC)
I was reading your page, and man, it was great. I laughed a lot, very witty. I also noticed we seem to like similar music from the series (for the most part). Border of Death was AMAZING, I know how you feel there. Anyway just thought I'd say hai and nice job with editing. Keep up the good work, see ya around~
Holy muffins, she does! Never noticed til you pointed that out. Bahahahahaha, small internet. Tenshi's Shadow 16:46, December 14, 2011 (UTC)
I liked the Sakuya image best :3 VS showed it to me the other day. I can try to test something out with those two in a few days and post up images of what I have. In the meantime, you are welcome to post more images and get more people interested in a change ;)
I'll also have more information on how to customize the layout soon, if you're interested. If you have any color ideas for your backgrounds, add those up too! I can figure out how to change almost any color on the wiki if you get reaaal specific. --01:34, December 29, 2011 (UTC)
Happy New Year!!!
Happy New Year to you, I would be grateful if you do so, because I have to go out for these days. So if you can do it... :D --Kyubey |／人◕ ‿‿ ◕人＼||Do you wanna make a contract? 13:59, December 31, 2011 (UTC)
OH MY GOSH, THAT AVATAR. I can tell it's Mokou-tan :3 Whether it is or not, please, can you give it to me? I love it! :DD --AlannahFujiwara 09:15, January 3, 2012 (UTC)
Love your picture! :D Where did you found it? :3
XFujiwaraNoMokoux 13:04, January 12, 2012 (UTC)
Ok, yes, i would like! C: So you are Mima now? Nice character! She's one of my favorite characters in the PC-98 games, but i also prefer Yumemi and Kana. ;) I love that picture of Flan!~ I saw the same on on Zerochan, i even saw a version of Kurumi! ;d
XFujiwaraNoMokoux 18:53, January 14, 2012 (UTC)
Ah! Thanks! You are amazing! (: I found out what the names are of these fluffy things: Sukusuku Hakutaku are they called, i found a link to Zerochan with these things: http://www.zerochan.net/Sukusuku+Hakutaku There are a lot of parodies! Hina Kagiyama, Miku Hatsune, Ran Yakumo, Koakuma and even Kurumi! xD
XFujiwaraNoMokoux 12:33, January 15, 2012 (UTC)
Tojiko and Futo
No, I actually haven't seen that xD Was going lala blah blah randomly when I suddenly had a thought about Umako, Iratsume, Futsuhime etc... suddenly "Wait a minute, if Umako and Futsuhime had children and one of them was called Tojiko no Iratsume... HOLY MOLY!!!" Haha xD --AlannahFujiwara 12:08, January 23, 2012 (UTC)
Oh! I see a Konngara at the bottom of my screen! ;D Nice!
XFujiwaraNoMokoux 13:42, January 26, 2012 (UTC)
Oh yes! She want's to eat me! D: How did you do that? :3
XFujiwaraNoMokoux 13:50, January 26, 2012 (UTC)
I LOVE YOUR AVATAR, I WANT TO HUG IT... then die. Well that's what will happen after I attempt to do so. Anyway, that's not what this is about, this is about a link on your profile. The one saying "Luna is a jerk." Leads to a "page not found" URL. You may want to fix that, as i remember viewing it some time ago and lulzing. If it works fine for you, then must just be my laptop.
Just thought I'd mention that, have a good day, and next day, and so on. keep up the great work on the wiki~
Insert subject here
HOLY DOLPHINS!!! I have been spending the last two months without my family, so I didn't realise it was my birthday... T.T' now I'm so shocked i forgot how old I turned ._." I guess this is what happens when you lay in bed all day and forget the time and date. --AlannahFujiwara 20:43, February 9, 2012 (UTC)
Weewalala-around the wiki and then think...
ARE YOU REALLY THE ADMIN OF THAT TOJIKO PAGE!? O,O --AlannahFujiwara 12:04, February 13, 2012 (UTC)
- Because I liked it some time last year (I found a lot of Touhou pages and liked them all...) and then I realise it was YOU admin-ing it O,o got really surprised. WAHAHAHA!!! (Okay, sorry, I am a little random...) --AlannahFujiwara 08:33, February 17, 2012 (UTC)
- You're welcome. Can't find me? Of course you can't... haha... ¬.¬ --AlannahFujiwara 12:49, February 17, 2012 (UTC)
I need to work on titles that are actually half decent. Anykappa, Seeing as you were just editing/mentioning your Touhou 14/15 shtuff, I wanted to say that you do a great job at that. I've read both (and the related things) and must say, great work~ I often hope your TH 15 story comes to life
because that means Momiji comes back! I look forward to future "predictions" if you will.
No problem, and I don't see how anyone can confuse that for real stuff, but if they do, they must be pretty darn stupid/gullible, yeah. All but one of my sigs use lyrics from the English version of Bad Apple (I feel the words flow better, then again, I speak English so it's only natural). I just really love that song... as well as End of Daylight... and so many more.
Tanjoubi! (am I doing it right? xDD) Happy birthday! (Found out through Tojiko!) --AlannahFujiwara 06:00, March 14, 2012 (UTC)
Because I'm a nosy little bugger, bappy hirthday~ Side note... thing: Have you ever wanted something, debated as to whether or not you should buy it, and then decided to buy it only to find out it's sold out and never coming back in stock? I LOVE MY LIFE :D
