"1970s" nuclear submarine

1
Les (talkcontribs)

I'm begging you to stop adding "in the 1970s" whenever the submarine crash from vs. King Ghidorah is mentioned. I've reverted it here and here in addition to the most recent time. I've since confirmed that the sub is indeed Soviet, but there is no evidence that it crashed in the 70s.

The King of the Monsters (talkcontribs)

Please, stop changing all uses of "mech" to "mecha." For our purposes they are synonyms, and there is no reason to universally only use one name and remove all uses of the other. We have been requesting that you stop making this change for a while.

Daimajin1966 (talkcontribs)

I changed it in Godzilla: Tokyo SOS to match what was said above it in Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla in the Kiryu article. What's wrong with that? One time only, nothing more. I haven't done anything like that before this and I'm called out. This isn't fair.

However, I've now changed both of them to 'cyborg', since Kiryu is exactly that and not a mech/mecha.

Two months ago! that should count for something.

The King of the Monsters (talkcontribs)

Please stop changing it to one or the other universally. It is a synonym, it doesn't have to "match." Everything does not have to match. We are asking you to stop changing wording for no reason. Not every term must be written the exact same way sitewide.

Zillaman98 (talkcontribs)

uh its still happening.

Daimajin1966 (talkcontribs)

See your user talkpage, Zillaman98, for an explanation for my original term "cyborg/mecha" to describe Neo Gigan. Methinks the admins keep making a huge stink over what is basically absolutely nothing, since if anyone else did this, they'd let it slide, while I am constantly chastised after all I've done for them in the past. What I'm doing is not a crime and does not deserve chastisement, the way I see it.

The King of the Monsters (talkcontribs)

Daimajin, we are not singling you out, we just have to constantly ask you to stop making edits because you make more edits than any other user on the site at a rate that is very hard to keep up with. Many of these edits are pedantic or unnecessary and you feel the need to change things page- or even site-wide without any admin approval. It results in other users and myself having to spend a very long time parsing through your edits to revert things that need reverted.

The reason we constantly leave these warnings on your wall is to ask you to please stop making the same edits that we have asked you to stop making and to just make our jobs a little easier. You continuously ignore our messages and continue the same editing patterns, and whenever you do respond you act as if we have it out for you and dismiss our genuine feedback.

This is getting tiring for all involved and you have demonstrated little to no willingness to listen to us and improve your edits. You have been given ample warning and received more second chances from the staff than most users who have caused issues. At this point our patience seems to have been useless and unless you start cooperating with us now, I'm afraid we will be forced to block you for good.

Please read my response instead of ignoring it or interpreting it as an unfair bias against you. I am trying to help you to help the site. If you can't understand that, there's nothing more I can do.

The King of the Monsters (talkcontribs)

Please stop changing mentions of "Germany" to "West Germany" without first verifying that the film was ever released in West Germany. Specifically, you have made this edit multiple times on the Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster page after being asked to stop. Despite being released in Japan in 1964, it was not released in Germany until 2011, well after its reunification.

Daimajin1966 (talkcontribs)

I only made the edit twice, not multiple times, but thanks for telling me.

The King of the Monsters (talkcontribs)

Please stop changing all mentions of "dorsal fins" to "dorsal plates."

Daimajin1966 (talkcontribs)

I can explain. ABB said they were dorsal plates, and besides, reptiles don't have fins, but fish do. All fish have fins; they're the only animals that do. No reptile that I know of has fins like a fish. Reptiles have things like flippers, frills, and yes, even plates, but not fins.

Les (talkcontribs)

What reptile do you know that breathes atomic flame?

They are universally known as dorsal fins in Japanese, and is even what Tomoyuki Tanaka called them. Real-world biology need not apply.

The King of the Monsters (talkcontribs)

They are called "dorsal fins" in English as well. It's not universally consistent, but it is the most common name used for them in both languages.

The King of the Monsters (talkcontribs)

I am asking you to please slow down your editing pace or at least try to make edits at the same time rather than in a streak of dozens. The reason I keep having to rollback your edits is because you are making sweeping standardization changes across pages, many of which you have been specifically asked to stop making, and it becomes impossible to parse the minor corrections you are making from unapproved pedantic changes. And when these are reverted, please do not immediately add them back because it just creates the same problem again.

Titanollante (talkcontribs)

Daimajin - there's no reason to do 40 edits in the span of a few minutes. Do one or two.

The King of the Monsters (talkcontribs)

Daimajin, please. We warned you and you are continuing to ignore us. I am asking you to please stop edit-warring with the staff and making dozens of consecutive edits, many of which you have been specifically asked to stop. This is your last warning, we're tired of doing this routine.

Capitalization of foreign titles

2
The H-Man (talkcontribs)

You've been changing the way foreign titles are capitalized: please consider that titles in foreign languages do not necessarily follow the same capitalization rules as in English. Most of the ones you've changed over the past couple of days were already correct. If you're not sure how to capitalize foreign titles, you should probably leave them alone.

Daimajin1966 (talkcontribs)

Okay, that was my fault. I won't touch them anyone.

Parenthetical years

1
The King of the Monsters (talkcontribs)

You were already directly asked to stop adding parenthetical years next to mentions of movie titles where another film with the same title does not already exist. Please don't do it anymore.

Mech vs. mecha

1
The King of the Monsters (talkcontribs)

Please stop changing all mentions of "mech" to "mecha." Both words are acceptable. I have been asking you to stop doing this for a while.

The King of the Monsters (talkcontribs)

Please stop putting words in italics in order to emphasize them. I've been asking you to stop this for months now, yet you still continue to do it.

Godzilla: Legends #3

4
Astounding Beyond Belief (talkcontribs)

This is the third time you've tried calling the two Mechagodzillas we see at the end of this issue the first of an army. I don't see anything in the issue to that effect - please explain?

Daimajin1966 (talkcontribs)

I was always presuming that the Simians were creating more than two Mechagodzillas because the picture seemed to imply that, at least to me. It looked like the beginning of something big. It would also make more sense to use an army instead of just one.

Also, in the Mechagodzilla and Titanosaurus articles here, one mentions an army and one a fleet, but I forget which one is which.

However, if you believe I'm wrong, I'll accept that too. Do with it as you will.

Astounding Beyond Belief (talkcontribs)

It's possible, but not stated directly, and alien races in Godzilla media have a long history of invading Earth with only a few giant monsters/mechs at their disposal. Best to leave it out.

Daimajin1966 (talkcontribs)

Since you put it that way, okay, I'll leave it alone. Thanks for asking.
