錯誤重定向

各位日本語維基百科編者大家好。在下發現在日本語維基存在“燕遼官話”“燕語”“膠莱官話”“莱語”“斉語”“魯語”等重定向,而這些名稱不見于中國期刊和學術書籍,應該是少數人臆造胡謅出來的名稱,具有誤導性,希望有心人能夠刪除。在下不熟悉日語、亦不瞭解日本語維基百科提請刪除重定向頁面的程序,在此希望獲得各位帮助。感謝,謹祝編安。Ngguls会話) 2019年10月30日 (水) 12:32 (UTC)

Infobox image syntax

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)

secondary independent sources

@WhisperToMe: Hey I have been told to have secondary independent sources for my article "Water and Land Niigata Art Festival". Could you please help me find sources written in Japanese to improve notability? Thank you. en:Water and Land Niigata Art Festival MalloMallo会話) 2019年11月23日 (土) 10:00 (UTC)

@MalloMallo: I got good news for you! I found a scholarly English language source about the festival!
If you want access, ask en:Wikipedia:RX
Having said that, I think it's still good to find some scholarly Japanese sources too.

Request for translation help

Hello, Last week was a Holodomor ホロドモール commemoration week. I am currently looking for people who could be willing to translate into Japanese articles about people who spread information about the famine in 1933, e.g. en:Alexander Wienerberger, en:Gareth Jones (journalist) or en:Ewald Ammende? P.S. I am not active on the Japanese Wikipedia, unfortunately, but I created quite a lot of articles in the Russian, Ukrainian, English and German versions. If you can help, I will be glad to do something in return. Thank you. --Dmitri Lytov会話) 2019年12月1日 (日) 16:45 (UTC)

Hello Dmitri Lytov! I think en:Alexander Wienerberger and en:Ewald Ammende are insufficient of citation, so it hard for Japanese Wikipedia to be accepted. I am ready for translation for en:Gareth Jones (journalist). I have a question about pronunciation of his name. Is IPA notation of his name /vɔːn/, or not?片割れ靴下会話) 2020年1月13日 (月) 12:46 (UTC)

Request for help on the Project Sakura Wars article

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). Can you help? Thanks, Sjones23会話) 2019年12月15日 (日) 17:27 (UTC)

It is being discussed at ノート:新サクラ大戦. --2001:240:2403:ED59:68DA:AFFA:DCB9:26B1 2020年1月11日 (土) 01:21 (UTC)
