If you continue making incorrect and bizarre edits after being warned to stop, such as inexplicably adding "/Allosaurus" to every mention of the Time Dragon or pluralizing monsters when they should not be, you will be temporarily blocked. You have continued to refuse to acknowledge any of this and your edits have not improved at all. Consider this a warning.

The Time Dragon is an Allosaurus; it lived at the same time as Diplodicus and I've seen the episode when it aired; it's not a dragon, it's a theropod. Everyone knows that.
And the only reason I've plaralized the various monsters in both series' cases is because there are more than one of them in every one of the episodes I've done. In my opinion, every one of them that I've done should be plural, not singular; e.g., you never have one Giant Ant or Giant Bee, it's a colony not an individual. I hope that's enough of an explanation for you.
Consistency, people, consistency! Don't you get it at all? So don't go making me out to be the villain here. This should've been done a long time ago. If you don't like it, that's your problem, not mine. I'm not the one thinking that this is wrong, you are. No one else has said anything to me about this particular incident except you and no one cares but you. I've helped this web site out dozens of times (take a look at the article on Tsubaraya Productions for a recent example; every reference in there that exists now refers to its proper article in Ultraman Wiki; you have me to thank for that), I've had very few problems with it, and this is how you pay me back? Something as petty as this? At least pretend you're just jealous because you didn't think of it first.
Let me make one thing perfectly clear: I don't like to be yelled at.
"Time Dragon" is the creature's official name, adding an "Allosaurus" next to it is completely pointless. It would be like changing every mention of Rodan to "Rodan/Pteranodon." Furthermore, it is not an Allosaurus, because it is clearly meant to be a Tyrannosaurus. When the creature actually lived is irrelevant because the Godzilla cartoon is a work of fiction that simply places several dinosaurs together at the same time regardless of when they actually lived. Real dinosaurs were never 400 feet tall either.
Monsters' names only need to be pluralized in context, such as when describing the plot of a work. In simple documentation of a monster existing, the pluralization is unnecessary.
And I am definitely not the only person who takes issue with your edits. Other users have complained to me repeatedly about your edits, and I am simply the one who tries to bring it to your attention. My problem with your edits is your elitist attitude. You are obsessively trying to make everything sound more "proper" or "distinguished" by doing ridiculous things like removing all contractions or adding unnecessary clarification to every single mention of something. In many cases you are arbitrarily deciding that every mention of certain monsters' names should include their subtitle, like how you kept changing every mention of Norzzug to "Norzzug the Iron Lion." Your idea of "consistency" seems to be making everything as long-winded and pedantic as possible and removing any synonyms for words. You arbitrarily come up with these ideas of things that should be "consistent" and go about unilaterally implementing them sitewide without consulting anyone else, then you keep adding them back after having them reverted or being warned to stop.
I am only being so confrontational about this because I have warned you dozens of times, and you either completely ignore me or try to argue with me. I felt that threatening to block you was the only way to make you actually listen to me for once.
Fine, I won't do it again. What I'd like to know to is, who are all the others that are complaining? If these people have something to say to me, please let them say it to me, not to someone else. In other words, talk to me, not to you.
If you guys don't want me to edit anything at all from now on, just say so. And please be nice about it; remember, you can attract more flies with honey that you can with vinegar.
I don't want any more problems here; I've had enough of them at Wikipedia, the tyrannical, despotic dictators of the Internet where every single, solitary member on it has no face and no heart and doesn't even try to forgive and forget the wrongs of its, should I say, "undesirables"; the ones who are to be shunned and avoided at all costs just because you've somehow (shudder) offended them in one way or another. They've got me blocked from editing anything up until 2023-2024, and I've tried to apologize for what I did and asked nicely to be unblocked several times, but no-o-o-o-o-o, they won't even listen to me, they have to keep right on doing what they're doing just to keep the status quo, blaming me for everything just because of something that happened wa-a-a-a-a-ay back in May 2021, which I've tried to tell them won't happen again. Talk about mean-spirited and holding a grudge! And I can't find anyone at all to stand up for me or even help me get unblocked. I can't even find a way to delete my account or user page from it anywhere! In fact, the last time I looked, they outright banned me without even having the decency to tell me they were going to do so before they even did so! Hmmmph! The nerve!
I don't think I'm an elitist (I don't even know what that is or why you'd call me that; you don't even know me); I feel that a lot of viewers are new to all of this and don't know anything about anything. Why shouldn't explanations be available if that's the case?
For every good thing I've done, everyone seems to point out the bad things even more and be mean about it. I'd like to be complemented by someone at least once. Just once. Is that too muich to ask, or am I overstepping my bounds - again?
My man, this is a terrible response. First off, you've stated before that you won't do this things again, but the fact that this post exists shows that you either lied or couldn't keep your promise. You could have ended here, and it would have been fine (if you kept your promise). However, you immediately begin attacking the Wikizilla staff. (If you're reading this and don't know what the fly thing meant, he's saying help is easier to get by being kind.) Ironically, if the staff wanted to be rude, they would either berate and make fun of you, which they aren't doing, or banning you without notice. Neither are happening. They are showing much more restraint then you are, being calm and patient.
I'm not even gonna get into the thing about Wikipedia, because not only is there no point in bringing it up beside sympathy, you don't mention why you were banned, so I can't even talk about that. With the way you wrote, you also sound like a child, so keep that in-mind. It doesn't make your case any better.
Your next point is that you can't be an elitist because we don't you personally. TKoM simply said that with the way you edit and comment, you come off as that. If you don't want to be labeled like that, try changing how you interact with other people.
For this last one, people point out the your faults not because they are out to get you (like you seem to believe), most people are just trying to help you get better and make sure you follow the rules. Also, in one of your last arguments, TKoM mentioned how helpful some of your grammar edits are, and I agree. So, please stop spinning this as a sob story and making yourself the main victim, and just listen to the criticism.
I was searching google to see why I can't see the comments on here (It just says
) and good lord what the hell is this.
Why did you reply to a year old warning message between two others?
I think this post might be a mistake on this person's part. It probably should be deleted.
Numbering of posters, etc.
I don't think all the different posters need to be numbered, especially so arbitrarily (you've numbered them merely in the order they were already displayed on the site, i.e. the numbers mean nothing more than "this is the first poster for this film in our gallery"). Furthermore, I think you should consult site staff before taking up these kind of changes -- these are the kind of things that can be best automated by one of the moderators should they decide to do so.
I just also wonder why you feel these changes need to be made.
Duel of the Gargantuas title
This is the second time you have re-added the "Duel of the Gargantuas" title to the article when there is no precedence for its existence beyond Galbraith's book, nor is there any documented UK release or BBFC record.
Adding actual number symbols on pages.
Im begging you to stop actually putting numbers symbols on pages in place of numbers being spelled out.
Thats not how any wiki presents itself and it generally looks bad from a writing standpoint.
Technically any number above 10 (or even above nine) is supposed to be written as a number and not a word. This is true of most scientific journals and news reports.
Yes, that's right, Les. The only time when a double-digit number is written as a word and not as a number is in the beginning of a sentence.
oH, BTW, THANKS.

Mech vs. mecha
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.
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.
" I haven't done anything like that before this"
Except you did this before.
Two months ago! that should count for something.
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.
uh its still happening.
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.
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.
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.
I only made the edit twice, not multiple times, but thanks for telling me.
Please stop changing all mentions of "dorsal fins" to "dorsal plates."
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.
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.
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.
Please slow down
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.
Daimajin - there's no reason to do 40 edits in the span of a few minutes. Do one or two.
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
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.
Okay, that was my fault. I won't touch them anyone.
