Covers the City

Hey, I was confused reading over the Covers the City page. That second sentence didn't make much sense to me at all, don't know if it was a translating issue.

Themonkeyofdoom14:41, 6 July 2017

I heard that they used the simple present tense to keep the "COVERS" series in the title, so that Beni covers the city. But don't know if they mean that she sings (covers) songs of the city (city pop) or if the environment is meant with "covers".

Serdar23:21, 8 July 2017

I've made some edits to the page after looking through several sources. It looks like it's in the style of City pop.

Themonkeyofdoom23:54, 9 July 2017


I just wanted to let you know that the term record can still be used today with CDs and digital releases, it is not excusively for a vinyl format. It's just recorded material, people also use the term when talking singles :)

Themonkeyofdoom21:42, 11 August 2016


that wasn't my point and so didn't relate to vinyls; her following compilation album back in 2010 (after "Heart Station") is a record, too. Also, there you can find new songs on it, so it's wrong terminology calling "Heart Station" her latest Japanese language record before "Fantôme". In your case--counting digital records--we would look at those two digital singles released this year in topic of latest (Japanese) record. So something was wrong with 'Japanese language record' - for sure it's her first Japanese studio album ever since "Heart Station" was released but it's not her first 'Japanese language record'. Hope you get my point.


Serdar21:56, 11 August 2016

Haha, yeah I see what you mean. The word record could still be used in place of album here, but I do understand why you changed it.

Themonkeyofdoom22:01, 11 August 2016


Hi Serdar. Try to not include on an artist "Compilations" list, songs that were previously released on their own discographies. Only new songs, or remixes should appear there.

Pizca17:10, 1 February 2013

Okay, but don't we mention them? ^^

Serdar17:12, 1 February 2013

We shouldn't.

Also, please if you are keep doing DJ KAORI's releases take first a look to the changes i made to DJ KAORI's Jmix III. It looks more clear now. Also double check the links, some linked to other artists songs.

Pizca17:21, 1 February 2013

Okay! :-)

Serdar17:22, 1 February 2013

In response of your email...

There is one "Oh Happy Day" by Takagaki Ayahi here and a TV show in Kim Min Hee's filmography section.

There are various "Amazing Grace", by Nakashima Mika here, albums by Shiratori Emiko and Honda Minako, by Nagase Miyu here, by mink here, by KOKIA here, by Natsukawa Rimi here, etc...

Make sure you use quotation marks when making searches, otherwise it would not show the correct results. And please, I keep asking the same thing over and over.... use my talk page for these kind of things..

Pizca16:33, 20 January 2013

I can't write on your talk page. :( I click to add a new question, than it load something and nothing happend. :D I think I don't delete this messager, so I write here if I have some questions, okay?

Serdar13:57, 22 January 2013


Serdar13:58, 22 January 2013

Ok, no problem. As it's my thread it will alert me of new messages :D

Pizca15:30, 22 January 2013

Please stop adding sources links on the images you upload. If someone finds another version of it, better quality, or something, the page has to be edited. Also, most of the time you put links to non-official websites, meaning non-trustworthy sources. Thank you.

Pizca09:29, 12 January 2013

Okay! - Only on them, that pictues where I edited because of a better quality, or in all way? I did this, because in Germany we have a strict copyright and we must write this sources, I was confused, but if I don't must do this, better for me, this was superfluous work, haha. ^^

Because "phonogram", this was early a record label and they called their formats (as one category) "phonogram", this is the only describtion to take all categorys in one, but it was forget.

Serdar10:36, 12 January 2013

For all of them. Copyright it's always an issue, but we never had any problems.

I'm trying to decipher your second sentence. I can't figure it out, sorry.

Pizca11:09, 12 January 2013

Moving pages

Why are you moving, for example: "Diamond Wave (single)" to "Diamond Wave (Kuraki Mai song)". We only use "song" for a page title if it's indeed a song page, but never for singles, Wikipedia does, not us. Also there are not other "Diamond Wave"s on the wiki, so the "Kuraki Mai" is completely unnecessary....

Pizca19:38, 28 December 2012

I have already told you this. Don't try to change the format we use. It's not going to work and your edits will be reverted. If you think something has to change, use a talk page or the forum to ask for opinions first.

Pizca19:40, 28 December 2012

My fault, sorry. But if the album is called "Diamond Wave" and the song on it too, than must the album named "Diamon Wave (Kuraki Mai album)", right? Sorry, I'm from normal wiki. ~.~ Can you give me the site, where I can see the formats?

Serdar22:50, 28 December 2012

No, it should be named "Diamond Wave (album)" and "Diamond Wave (single)". If there would be more releases featured on the wiki with the same title then yes, Kuraki Mai's should be on there, but only on that case.

The formats are all over the wiki. Some of the pages you moved did not need to be moved, so I guess that would be the better example.

Pizca11:44, 30 December 2012

Okay, but I never understand, why we write the stylized names, example Exile as the right stylized EXILE? On normal wiki we do only "Exile", this is so confused to me... and on normal wiki (wikipedia) we never write "(single)", we only take "(song)".

But for this wiki, I think I understand it now. :D

Serdar12:56, 30 December 2012

Why? Because it's the correct way. An artist/group/band has decided he/they want to be called (for example) EXILE, not Exile.

As for single/song. Once again it's just a correct way. Maybe it's because the big western influence on regular Wikipedia, I don't know. But in Asia singles and songs are different things. A single contains songs, but a song doesn't has to be a single.

Pizca14:12, 30 December 2012

Changing titles

If you want to move a page, please, use the button for it (right to "View history"), don't create duplicated pages and redirects.

Pizca11:05, 18 September 2012

I had don't know, in future I will do this, thanks!! :)

Serdar15:51, 3 October 2012

The correct format for the caption of the covers is "Single/Album Cover", not "Art". Thank you.

Pizca13:38, 2 September 2012

Oh sorry, I saw some formats with "art". :O

Serdar14:19, 2 September 2012

Your latst changes

Hi, please respect the format that has been decided to be used in generasia. All your latest edits are going to be reverted as we don't use the term "Extended Plays" for mini-albums, and regular/studio album don't need that headline. The next time you feel you need to make so many edits, please ask an admin about it first, thank you.
