Hey just wanted to thank you for translating parts of this novel. After watching the first two episodes of the anime its nice to be able to read the parts of the original work and see what was changed. Its also easier to pick up hints in the novel than it is in the anime :)

Black Bullet

Deserves to be translated. Need more translators. It's not even in the "Light Novels" tab. The link :

Hi, i would like to help with the Black Bullet Series by being an editor. How do i join? -親切な王

Uhmmm. SIR.

Why don't you make a category where we are able to upload are own novels. Possible?


Kokoro Connect Spanish Pending Project

Hello, I don't mean to sound so blunt however in order for an alternative language project to be confirm it needs a Main page and a Registration page, right? I already consider that and the first chapter of the first volume is already translated. Also adding a forum to the page. All it needs to be fully confirm was to contact an administrator to be consider so I'm contacting you. And if it's wrong to do it here I'm terribly sorry but I was looking around how else to do it and this is the only method I ended it up with... --BakaSenpai (talk) 21:22, 22 October 2012 (CDT)

Nice translation. Mind if I proofread it?

While reading, I couldn't help but notice grammar and spelling errors. I've gone through Chapter 1 and fixed what blatant grammatical and spelling errors I could find as I read. Kyon's dialogue is in parenthesis during the first parts of the chapter but not in the later parts. I'm assuming this is present in the Japanese translation so I'll leave Kyon's speech alone in the later chapters. I've resisted changing any character's dialogue and only switched around words where the meaning was rough or unclear. I'll leave futher polishing up to you. Baltakatei 23:57, 17 April 2006 (PDT)

I'll add my thanks to Baltakatei's, and offer my help with proofreading/translation. See my user page for further introduction to me. --Freak Of Nature 14:03, 18 April 2006 (PDT)

Nice translation. Mind if I grab a chapter?

I'm fiddling with translation of chapter 5, and I expect to be contributing a chunk of translated material later today, if this is all right with you. --Freak Of Nature 08:01, 20 April 2006 (PDT)

Use the "Current Event" page

Hey lastguardian! mind if we use the current event page for discussion between editors & translators for the guidelines for standardlising the project?

It'll easy to have everything under one page, then to have it on the main page discussion tab page or in the individual chapters talk pages.

Onizuka-gto 07:37, 21 April 2006 (PDT)

All righty... now we have several different places for discussion of the same part of the project. With text duplicated. That means that when an update is made, and discussion or commentary is needed, the text needs to be placed in two or more locations. This DOES NOT WORK.

I strongly suggest that all discussion on issues regarding individual chapters be kept to the talk pages for the chapters, and only central issues like Kyon's tenses and the like be discussed on the main page.

--Freak Of Nature 02:46, 23 April 2006 (PDT)

I was just thinking about that as I checked the pages yesterday. I tried to sort through them in my mind, and I pretty much have an outline. I was going to do it today, but I guess you beat me to it.
--Thelastguardian 12:28, 23 April 2006 (PDT)

This is something I would agree with - it just makes more sense, to me, to discuss individual chapters on that chapter's talk page, and discussing more global things on the current events page.

Maybe, instead of duplicating all of the discussion to the current events page, we should just put a link to each chapter's discussion page somewhere on the current events page. Something like Volume 1, Chapter 1 Discussion, possibly? Just put one for each chapter at the top of the page, I guess. Above the table of content box.

--Ryukaiser 05:07, 23 April 2006 (PDT)

Which is why I post "Awkward Phases" only in Discussion page. Anyway that is part of my plan that I was planning to discuss today.
--Thelastguardian 12:28, 23 April 2006 (PDT)

I agree with Ryukaiser, we should just link to the discussions for each chapter, to avoid fiddling with duplicated text.

Which sort of ties in with the question of translation notes. Have a look at how I've arranged the discussion page for chapter 5. There's a complete section for translation notes, which is to say notes that are directly related to issues in that chapter. I've given each of them a subheader in the section for translation notes, in the order in which they occur in the text. I don't mention Kyon's tenses or stuff like that -- that's for a central debate on the main discussion page.

--Freak Of Nature 05:50, 23 April 2006 (PDT)

I copied all the discussion in the "Awkward phrases" section that wasn't already there over to the Chapter 1 discussion page, and linked it in the format guideline discussion page. --Ryukaiser 23:11, 23 April 2006 (PDT)

FoN move to Dedicated Editor

Hello Captain :D

I've just read that noticed on the registration page about FoN's change of heart.

If this is the first time you heard of it, that's good, if not, well i hope you got this before you changed anything.

All i ask is that you hold off a little before you do it, i just wish to talk to him about this. I believe it will serious hamper the project if we lose one of our only two translators.

oh ok, i meant three :rolleyes:, but one of our [i]Active[/i] ones :D

let me talk to him, and see if i can persude him to not to change. if i can't, so be it. but at leased I have to try.

Regards your Aide De Camp.


Onizuka-gto 18:50, 23 April 2006 (PDT)

Amazing speed! May I be a part of it?

Harunako from here. What a wonder to see the speed in translation efforts! Can only say "admirable." I'm now in vacation in United States, but after the vacation I would like to help in the Vanishing of Suzumiya Haruhi. Only under your approval, my captain! Harunako 22:15, 27 April 2006 (PDT)

Wiki Bug?

hello TLG,

looking quite active today. (^^)

just got a report from Darkoneko about some 'bug' in the wiki:

I can't copy the text here because the spam;filter blocks the text "Display[:]none"

here is the link to that message:

Wiki Bug?


Onizuka-gto 20:02, 16 August 2006 (PDT)

 I understand, thanks for getting the ZnT thing up.

Now i just have to figure out how to create the custom pages, and add the users.


anyway, good luck on your exam tomorrow.


Onizuka-gto 20:13, 16 August 2006 (PDT)

Understood Captain,

thanks for the power-up! (^^)/


Onizuka-gto 20:33, 16 August 2006 (PDT)


yep search restricted

cheers. boss.

oh, one thing, tried to create a new NT page but it gave me page creation limit?

is this restricted to only one page?

Requesting permission to submit a certain chapter

I already e-mailed you about this, but anyways, I hope I can contribute a little in the translating of "Charmed at first sight LOVER", since the current translator is AWOL, which I'm guessing is Absent Without Official Leave. (P/S: Sorry if I sound like a n00b but I'm not really sure how things work, so I thought it would be better to ask before posting anything)

CSS Loading Extension?

Hey TLG,

Just wondering if there's an extension out there you could install where if I created a page called:


and then created a page called:


The main.css would get loaded and apply styles to Testpage and anything that includes Testpage. Is this possible? Thanks.

no --Thelastguardian 22:29, 4 October 2010 (UTC)

Ah, good to know ;) --Darklor 19:00, 5 October 2010 (UTC)

Boku wa tomodachi ga sukunai

Arent already enough chapters translated for becoming a full project? --Darklor 07:24, 9 December 2010 (UTC)

Doesn't feel like it :p --Thelastguardian 00:33, 17 December 2010 (UTC)

Do you fear it will get an official release as soon as you make it an official project? --Darklor 21:56, 18 December 2010 (UTC)

The only thing I fear is fear itself :p . Honestly though, I am not worried/afraid about this at all. --Thelastguardian 18:12, 16 January 2011 (UTC)

Could you please check out this page,

thank you, i'll be waiting for your response. - Aezile

if you don't mind, I'll edit and proof-read this ^_^ --larethian 06:26, 19 May 2011 (UCT)

Hey there! I'll edit volume 9 (talked with inaban) and would like to edit the main-site to look like this. To avoid unpleasantries I'd like to ask of your approval. So no changes to the content, just style. Greetings, -cautr (talk) 15:30, 13 October 2013 (CDT)

Golden Time

I just thought that maybe Golden Time should also be added to the sidebar? Rpapo has completed a full chapter and has been putting out pages consistently. --Larethian 07:00, 20 January 2011 (UTC)

Albeit slowly... --Rpapo 19:03, 20 January 2011 (UTC)

If he wants to, sure. --Thelastguardian 19:09, 20 January 2011 (UTC)

For me, this has all been an extended (and largely ungraded) homework assignment, helping me to learn the language better. There appear to be a number of people following the story (50 or so judging by the page counter), but it hardly compares to Toradora or many of the other projects. On the other hand, it's hardly a teaser anymore, and I expect another book will come out in March or April (it's not in their February announcement). There will be work for others, if there's enough interest. --Rpapo 19:20, 20 January 2011 (UTC)

Isnt it already overdue that this series gets its own sidebar entry? --Darklor 00:31, 6 June 2011 (UCT)

It's still a teaser; I will add it once Rpapo upgrades it to a formal translation project. --Thelastguardian 01:59, 15 June 2011 (UCT)

Collapsible Tables

Umm. I was wondering. Why don't the tables become collapsible when I enter the parameters: class="wikitable collapsible collapsed", class="toccolors collapsible collapsed" or class="collapsible collapsed"? I mean in wikipedia and all wikia sites the function works. This site also seems to be based on the same structure. If this site does have a similar functionality can you tell me? I got the collapsible code data from these two places: [1] and [2]. Zero2001 - Talk - 21:47, 3 June 2011 (UCT)

Sorry for butting in, but it's not a standard feature AFAIK. See [3] (B-T uses v1.16.2, i.e. pre-1.17) EusthEnoptEron 22:04, 3 June 2011 (UCT)

I see. Thanks. That's all I wanted to know. *Groan* Another of my ideas scrapped. Oh well. Zero2001 - Talk - 00:02, 4 June 2011 (UCT)

Once MediaWiki releases 1.17, I will upgrade to it. Then I can add this without changing the code. --Thelastguardian 02:00, 15 June 2011 (UCT)

I think it has released it. MediaWIki 1.17. Zero2001 - Talk - 16:46, 2 July 2011 (UCT)

Nudge. Zero2001 - Talk - 20:57, 10 July 2011 (UCT)

Could you also update Cite.php to it's latest version. That would allow for grouping of <ref>s thus allowing us to divide the footnotes according to chapter when compiled in the volume fulltext versions. Just a thought. Zero2001 - Talk - 15:01, 16 July 2011 (UCT)

Nudge nudge. Zero2001 - Talk - 14:44, 21 July 2011 (UCT)

Done --Thelastguardian 18:50, 23 July 2011 (UCT)

Is it me or the website became slow and the as well as the sidebar? Kira (Talk) 19:43, 23 July 2011 (UCT)

Kira: Yeah but all of a sudden it's back up to speed now. I guess that happened due to the installation. But the speed just upped back now. Zero2001 - Talk - 19:50, 23 July 2011 (UCT)

Thelastguardian: Thank you for updating MediaWiki. So to confirm... you have updated MediaWiki, Cite.php extension and implemented collapsibility as stated in the links on MediaWiki_talk:Common.js??? The last part is debatable since the tables aren't collapsing automatically as programmed. Zero2001 - Talk - 19:50, 23 July 2011 (UCT)

Well It seems that the collapsing has begun to take effect. I've also confirmed that references can now be grouped properly. Thank You. I really appreciate all the work you guys did. Zero2001 - Talk - 20:40, 23 July 2011 (UCT)


Recently, I had the idea of making the chapter pages of one of the projects I frequently visit into subpages of their respective volume pages. I also learned that there is an example of such a system being attempted (The Monogatari Series) however it was a failure (maybe because subpage ability isn't activated on main namespace). Could you check on it? Here... these pages might help in understanding how to check and activate such options: [4] and [5]. Zero2001 - Talk - 08:53, 18 August 2011 (CDT)

Please activate it (especially for the namespaces "Main" and "Template" (for subtemplates). Subpages have the unique abilities of having a small link to their parent pages at the top AND needing smaller link/call names when linked or called from their parent page {{Series:Volume# Chapter#}} would just become {{/Chapter#}}. That's a two positive points, no? Zero2001 - Talk - 08:53, 18 August 2011 (CDT)

Plus I feel bad about the Monogatari Series trying a failing at such a good thing. Well I do also want to try it out on the IS series, lol. But I do seriously think it will be a good idea if we implement it. Zero2001 - Talk - 08:53, 18 August 2011 (CDT)

Changing Default Signature for all member users

Hey Thelastguardian, it's been a while. I have a favor to ask. You know how annoying it is to go through the user page to get to a user's talk page via the default signature; especially when you're in a hurry. Well I found a way to fix that. But I need a supervisor or above to do it for me. Can you copy the source code of this page to MediaWiki:Signature? It would be a great help if you did. Zero2001 - Talk - 13:16, 4 August 2012 (CDT)

Thanks a lot! :) Zero2001 - Talk - 23:21, 9 August 2012 (CDT)

Is it possible to add new characters into the Special Characters -> Symbols section?

I mean I know we have «» but we also use many of these special brackets and quotation marks in some special circumstances. In fact I have seen them being used. If these can be inserted via copy paste then putting them in that section would be even better. So is there some way to do so? Zero2001 - Talk - 11:28, 11 August 2012 (CDT)

Why don't the tags work?

It would be a great help in writing mathematical equations and fractions if it would work but it doesn't. Do you know why? Zero2001 - Talk - 06:32, 14 August 2012 (CDT)

The latest version of MediaWiki took out the component. I've manually installed it. --Thelastguardian (talk) 01:05, 11 December 2012 (CST)

SHnY - Tagalog

Well, good day (or maybe good evening?). Mind if I translate some of the chapters of the 4th volume of Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu (Tagalog)? I'm currently translating the "PROLOGUE" of it and I accidentally clicked the save page without your consent. I'm very very sorry for that. Ehe! Anyway, this is my first time fiddling with BT Wiki so please give me some slack (did I use the wrong words here? Maybe the phrase "please take care of me" should do it, right?) I'm not that fast on translating and I'm a total newbie but I'll try my best.

Permission to translate Campione to Vietnamese

I'm new to the translating stuff but I hope to contribute to the light novel community at Viet Nam. Hope you can approve it !

Can't PM on the forums anymore

I just noticed that I can no longer use PM on the baka-tsuki forums, it says I'm not "authorized". (My account is "Eternal Dreamer", just like here.) I know I could use it before, so I'm stumped that I can't anymore. Am I unaware of something? I came to you because the FAQ said I should go to a board administrator in this kind of situation. --Eternal Dreamer (talk) 10:26, 20 October 2012 (CDT)

Never mind, just realized it was because of the new "10 posts" rule. (Guess I'm going to have to get more active on the forums from now on.) You don't have to respond back, I'll just fill up my posting quota until I'm allowed to PM again. --Eternal Dreamer (talk) 10:29, 20 October 2012 (CDT)

User Skins/Common.js

Hello TLG, I was wondering if you could enable this in LocalSettings.php?

$wgAllowUserJs = true;

It allows users to apply personal javascript to their accounts. For example, I personally want to see a filtered recent changes with only edits greater than +3000 chars. I could do this with js enabled, and it only affects my browser and no one else's. This is how it works on Wikimedia sites, which have that option enabled: [6] Cloudii (talk) 12:15, 8 February 2014 (CST)

--Thelastguardian (talk) 00:34, 27 March 2014 (CDT) I don't feel comfortable allowing users to put in their own JS- I've seen too many XSS attacks. Would $wgAllowUserCss work in your situation?

Forum registration

Hi, I'm trying to register to BT's forums but it keeps saying my IP is blocked for some reason for another. This is odd as I haven't had an account on the forums in years. I would send an email instead of posting here but there are no contact details anywhere.

Editing issues

Umm, I'm wondering, why is the BakaTsuki editors having issues? I mean the wiki editing not the people. If I post an entire translated chapter, it jumbles it into 1 huge paragraph & the 'Search & Replace' isn't working either. It is honestly making editing and posting difficult.

I posted an example of how the image looks once I click preview (and that's how it turns out when you post a new chapter.)Pic is Here

This has been happening after the changes to the system. It won't allow a massive paste, so I'm stuck having to paste a sentence at a time, which is annoying.

If this isn't the right place to ask about/post the issues, then where should I go?--Deathmailrock 17:16, 4 June 2014 (CDT)

Is the issue still exist? JinXiang 19:15(GMT+8), 27th June 2014

I want to register Baka Tsuki Forum to discuss about translation project. But i couldn't because there were this statement "Your IP has been blocked because it is blacklisted. For details please see Your IP has been blocked because it is blacklisted. For details please see An entry on the blacklist may have several reasons: 1. You are a well-known spammer. 2.

When i tried to register Baka Tsuki Wiki, i found the same problem. But suddenly i could register successfully. How to fix this problem, i only use ISP from my office and mobile modem. Please help me.

Thank you Sir.

I suddenly just have registered successfully. But I still think why it happens.
