Just a question

EXodius, thank you for your efforts to bring back the Asian media wiki. I should post it in a community page but I can't find it. I'm happy looking wiki.theppn data to be brought back but can I ask you some questions? First, I don't know this what is this wiki's purpose, are you trying build a new wiki with your own style or bring back database from the old wiki.theppn? Because I saw some pages are from and following wiki.theppn's style but others (Hamasaki Ayumi and Utada Hikaru's pages) are made with differences. Second, I saw your post on a certain forum XD, should we wait for an answer from Womby to handle the wiki.theppn database to you (I heard he has the July one, which is newer than Internet Wayback Machine)? Finally, I'm not trying to be harsh, thank you again. Seph 23:48, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

Incorrect info

Just wanted to let you know that the info for The End of Shite is incorrect as it is a copy-paste for Five-Star instead.--Ryard 05:17, 29 August 2009 (UTC)


I have a complaint about Themonkeyofdoom nitpicking over my placement of images, referring to imaginary "policy", and refusing to respect my preferences. I can't see him listening to anything I say, since everything has to be exactly his way or not at all, so please help me out. See my user talk page for an example of his bullying. I stand by my decisions and think they are perfectly reasonable. I agree we should not publish the back cover most of the time, but to do it now and then, when appropriate, seems fine. Catbus 01:21, 13 September 2009 (UTC)

All I have done is told what guidelines we go by here. For example if you had come in and created the pages in a completely different format, we would have changed them, since we use this format. I did not create this format, but it is the agreed upon format by users for this wiki. Another user came along and removed the back images from your pages, because they don't follow the format. You would have gotten the same treatment at thePPN and the Wikipedia. If anything I feel like your trying to bully me by going and removing all the promotional images from Hayashibara Megumi's singles. ~ Themonkeyofdoom 19:14, 13 September 2009 (UTC)

KARA Blooming (2007).jpg


P00p is convinced that Kara's 1st album The First Bloooooming is actually called "Blooming". He/ she is basing this incorrect label on what a few Korean websites label the album, even though Korean websites have mislabeled many album titles and this is one of them. The correct name of their album is even on the cover which says The First Bloooooming not "Blooming". I posted the picture of the album cover. You can enlarge the image and see that is says The First Bloooooming not "Blooming". However, P00p is still thoroughly convinced that the Korean websites they have seen are right regardless of the hard evidence of seeing the album title on the actual cover. P00p keeps changing the wiki page to "Blooming". So I am asking you to tell him to refrain because they are incorrect and when people see the wiki page they will be getting incorrect information.

About the digital..

It seems you didn't saw my message at the forum, so I bring it here since I really don't know what to do: "I just saw the "Download Exclusive" category and I was wondering if it's now necessary. If the release can have now the "Year + Digital Single" wouldn't be too redundant?

IMO, it's like if all the releases have the "Category:Single/Album" plus the "Category:Year + Single/Album"." That's all.^^ --Pizca 07:06, 3 January 2010 (UTC)


Wow I just saw that you made me an admnistrator. I am really surprised! Thank you soo much! Really! I'll try to make a better work here! Thanks again =) --FoxxyFuyumi 17:30, 28 March 2010 (UTC)

Since I was

A heavily respected user at the original PPN if you don't mind me asking shouldn't I be an admin on here? I mean I spent a long time trying to help build the PPN, shouldn't I have the respect here to be an admin? I really can be trusted with the tools! Zeli17 06:32, 30 March 2010 (UTC)

Um, I guess? Last I recall chatting with you on livejournal, you were against the idea of any other wiki besides theppn and was upset at articles being reposted. Not sure if it's just a change of heart or what (not that I'm complaining). Just surprised to see you around a year after this wiki started @_@ --EXodius 18:20, 30 March 2010 (UTC)
Well, I guess I just realized that the PPN isn't coming back and this is the best we got. We can make this more than J-Pop though you know. I believe in an all-Asian Wiki not just J-stuff. Another reason why I want to be an admin is on the PPN I always had punks spamming my talk page and always had to wait for Wapiko or Saa to block them I just want to have that power now so I just don't have to deal with it. Zeli17 20:33, 30 March 2010 (UTC)
Understandable. DarkScorpion spoke with Womby about a month ago. While the chat was brief, Womby did tell him that he fully supports this wiki, so it is official at this point. Despite the name, this wiki covers the same topics/genres (if not more) that wiki.theppn covered. Lastly, welcome back! I recall seeing you work quite a bit on theppn, so it's fine making you an admin here :) --EXodius 00:43, 31 March 2010 (UTC)
I replied on my talk page to the spam thing. Zeli17 00:10, 4 April 2010 (UTC)

thanks (^^)

Thank you for making me a sysop again! I apologize about before. Life got ahead of me D: haha. ~ Wapiko 01:35, 1 April 2010 (UTC)

Old images

Has there been any issue with missing images? Because I have a way to get them. ~ Wapiko 20:13, 4 April 2010 (UTC)

Front Page Weekly Charts question

Hey EXodius,

I was going to update the front page's weekly charts, but I just want to make sure I understand this correctly. I know the release of the weekly charts is on Monday, which is the of the current week, but the weekly numbers sum up the previous week. Wouldn't the week on the front page be the previous week instead of the current one (i.e. for this week, wouldn't it show week 23 instead of week 24?)? @__@ I know how to change it but I didn't want to change it if I was incorrect. D; I'll wait to hear from you. :)

Revenantsoulx314:43, 13 June 2014

Nevermind I think I figured it out. @___@

Revenantsoulx302:31, 14 June 2014

Did you figure it out? Sorry for not getting back to you sooner! My internet at home has been dodgy lately :(

  • eXodius

Hi I am kindly confuse as here dont provide a standard to put left or right. I want to cfm again. Standard pic is put on Right or Left?

Thank you~

Thank you so much for making me a administrator, Forum:Admin and Forum:Mod. I promise to do my best ^^ and help out anyway i can

Pikirumuzu09:27, 12 March 2014

No, thank you! It probably would've been done long ago but it's only recently that I've returned. Keep up the great work :)

Glad to see you back =) and i will ^_^

Pikirumuzu22:48, 12 March 2014

Hi, I hate to bother you, but there are a couple of things that I've noticed:

  • The references don't work anymore.
  • The new placement of the share links disrupts some of the pages.

Is there any chance that these could be fixed? Thanks!

Lambchopsuey (Talk | contribs)19:58, 27 February 2011

I had the same issue with the share buttons. Are you using an ad-block? It was my case, when it's off the add banner makes the page look good. I mean, aligned, like this:

What I did was to hide the share buttons too, this way everything looks fine.

Pizca22:39, 27 February 2011

Ohh, I see. Yes, I am using an ad blocker. I disabled it and it's still off because of my smaller screen:

Lambchopsuey (Talk | contribs)22:53, 27 February 2011

Yeah I also have a small screen so I have the same problem =/

~~FoxxyFuyumi14:10, 3 August 2011

I'll be looking into an alternative to the share buttons as I'd still like for some sort of means for people to share links, but there seems to be something with the recent version of it that's causing a few odd things (notably, a large gab below the links on the bottom of every page). However, I've been trying mainly to ensure the index works for everyone (as it's hurt our visibility on Google and other places for some time). As for references, continue to use the "ref" tags. I disabled them as part of my troubleshooting for those errors everyone kept getting, so they'll be back once more people tell me if it worked or not.

  • eXodius
05:40, 28 February 2011

Okay, thanks for your work. :)

Lambchopsuey (Talk | contribs)22:44, 28 February 2011

Speaking of bugs, the forums seem to be down with the error "Fatal error: Cannot redeclare username_exists() (previously declared in /home/omegax/public_html/generasia/forums/wp-united/wp-functions.php:163) in /home/omegax/public_html/generasia/wp-includes/user.php on line 1301". Also, is there any way to prevent all that spam from happening? For example, putting a verification code on the signup page. I know it's a bit annoying but the spam that been happening seem to be from mostly spam bots or one guy who has a bunch of IP addresses on hand and it's getting somewhat annoying. Thanks. :D

Aisasami02:03, 6 March 2011

So, Gaon went crazy. I don't know why, as there is not official statement on the site, but they changed the rankings for all the digital charts of this year (3 lists), at the same time they were adding the 4th and 5th week (because the Korean New Year holidays). I happened to be there while they were adding the new charts, and saw how everything went changing.

Now, the question. What should I do?. I change the past digital charts, I wait to see of there's any official statement, I leave them as they are now? The "Rank Change" column would be not working for the 4th week right now, so what do I do??

I'm confused... XD

Pizca07:36, 10 February 2011

Gaon charts

I was going to update the Gaon charts as I thought I missed also last week, and I just seen that I can't do it because the title says "Gaon Weekly for 2011 week 52". I guess this is because the -1 week thing? I hope you can fix it ^^

Pizca11:34, 6 January 2011

Oh, RIAJ chart also has the same title.

Pizca11:35, 6 January 2011

I'm unsure how to fix that since it seems to happen each year. It's probably just the code I'm using, so feel free to start next week if I can't figure it out :)

how many times will i have to say thanks XD still thx!

  • eXodius
06:31, 23 October 2010

Sorry to bother you but I had some questions. There are at least three (that I know of) different groups called "Sugar" and I was wondering if all the groups' images go into the same category. Also there might be some overlap of song and release names, so if that happens what should I do?

CrypticTokyo18:44, 21 August 2010

To me, there should be categories for each since it'd be way too confusing for people browsing through just that one category :)

  • eXodius
22:19, 22 August 2010

I was wondering if we should make a Tokusatsu Theme Song tag for songs that were used in Super Sentai, Ultraman, Kamen Rider, Godzilla, Toei Heroine Comedy Series, and etc? I been tagging them with "Dorama Theme Song" (some might even label them "TV Theme Song") but I find Toku not to be a like a regular drama but unique as it's a kid show with special effects and more action-packed.

Aisasami22:09, 19 August 2010

I agree, I don't like to call it Drama either. It's a huge genre in Japan and deserves a different category.

Pizca07:16, 20 August 2010

As I agree with both of you, having a new category for that is fine by me :)

Manga chart

I want to add the weekly Manga rankings by Oricon. I wasn't sure if I should add them to the previous existing chart or create a new one.

Themonkeyofdoom07:50, 28 July 2010

I think we shouldn't add it at the moment. First, we only have 27 pages, half of theme are finished. Second, adding manga charts means there are rooms for DVD charts, music DVD charts, game charts... In addition, making a new chart means we must work on it weekly while we are short of members.

Seph09:35, 28 July 2010

After posting this I was thinking we would create another chart with the Anime DVD and manga rankings/sales. The only down point I see to not create the chart, is for our lack of anime/manga pages, at the time being. Everyone just out links those pages to Wikipedia and don't think about creating the pages. I was thihking maybe doing the chart would help boost our need to create these pages.

I don't see the harm though in creating the charts for any of those releases. We should probably create one for the weekly Billboard chart as well. If we post the charting information on the pages, why not have a chart?

Themonkeyofdoom12:58, 28 July 2010

As you typically know what's best, I support your decision :).

13:12, 28 July 2010

Death date

Wasn't sure if you saw this, but I stole from Wikipedia added a death-date and age template. I think I did it right, but you might wanna check. So far I've only added it to Kawamura Kaori.

Themonkeyofdoom16:29, 25 July 2010

LOL yes, I saw that. Could do a redirect for that so all you need to do is use something like {{dda|blahblahrandominfo}} instead of {{death date and age|random info}}

Featured Article

Hi there! I was just wondering how you guys go about choosing the featured article each week? Are we allowed to make suggestions?

DEEP RIVER04:53, 21 July 2010

It's a "First come, first serve" sort of deal, meaning if you have an idea for a Featured Article and no one has made one for the week you're wanting to put one up, you're more than welcomed to do so. Just make sure you follow the layout of the previous Featured Articles and that the artist is releasing something that week. Other than that, that's really about it :)

  • eXodius
05:01, 21 July 2010

Oh ok. Thanks for the info!

DEEP RIVER05:41, 21 July 2010

Wait sorry, one more thing. How do I go about submitting the page? Do I just add it when the week comes about?

DEEP RIVER05:53, 21 July 2010

You can add it at any time. Right now, we have the Megumi article as we're in week 29. If you wanted to have an article ready for next week, just note it'd be "Jpop_Stop!:Featured_article_for_2010_week_30" (adjust accordingly if the artist you want is releasing at a later week). Hope that helps ;)

  • eXodius
15:05, 21 July 2010

Ok thanks! =]

DEEP RIVER18:06, 21 July 2010

Before I do anything I'm just checking, will I be given a chance to redeem myself or will I be banned? Its looking like I won't be banned, a fact that makes me very happy, but I was just checking with you, EXodius before I embark on my expansion of AV articles.

Unknown04:05, 21 July 2010

None of the admins have said anything about banning you (although your messages on their talk pages were somewhat unneeded). You're free to add AV pages and do whatever you believe will benefit the wiki as a whole.

EXodius04:10, 21 July 2010

OK. thanks. BTW, there is one admin that might try to ban me, and that's Wapiko. I just to make sure sure she won;t ban me either. But we'll worry about that when it gets to that. BTW, thank you EXodius. You have been a very helpful presence the last few days for me!

Unknown04:15, 21 July 2010

Cpop and Tpop

Mmm, I already asked about this last year, but I was just wondering if it was possible for you to change it from Cpop and Tpop to Mandopop and Cantopop. It's just a lot easier to sort the artists and releases this way as there are several artists in the industry who come from places like Singapore and Malaysia, but release in both China and Taiwan. I think it's just a lot easier to divide by the language. Taiwanese Pop often refers to the music sung in Taiwanese, but there is really little information I know on the main artists and there is not as much information online to go in depth with it. Mandopop and Cantopop is just a lot easier to divide as many artists will release full albums in one of the two languages.

P00p11:30, 28 June 2010

I suppose of none of the other admins/contributors have an issue with this, I personally don't mind and agree with your thinking :)

EXodius03:31, 29 June 2010

Well no one has said anything yet. :x
