After some isolated discussion re: names, I've had a thought. Right now, the format for character pages is to put the Japanese spelling in parenthesis immediately after the character name. As far as I'm aware, these are all phonetic (kana) spelling. Anyway, we have a problem. Or if that's too strong a word, we have a... thing: we are an English-language resource for Japanese media that uses German words frequently. The interplay of these three languages can be... weird. I winder if it might be beneficial to include somewhere (either with/near the Japanese or in the info box) the appropriate English phonetic pronunciation for the name. I would suggest using the IPA phonetic alphabet. What do you think?Canary 03:07, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

I have done this in one or two places (most memorably Legnica), and i don't mind. I would be OK putting it in the info box  ♥ kine @ 20:39, 10 September 2014 (UTC)

Info boxes

I'm browsing around and am noticing a problem with the info boxes being inconsistent. Specifically with regard to familily links. That is to say, some info boxes have a section/link for certain family members (usually spouses) and some don't have any. I think what needs to be done is that every character info box should have a "family" section/link (header? Sorry, I can't think of the right word) with every applicable character linked to. We should probably decide on a standardizes order. IE:

Father Mother Extended family (uncles, aunts, cousins, etc.) Siblings Spouse Children

With the relationshio labeled in a parenthesis after the link. In terms of utility, this would make it much easier to explore the dynastic relations. And its kind of silly that, for example, Reinhard's info box doesn't link to his wife, sister, son or parents.

Anyway, I think this is the kind of task best left to bots... But I don't know how to use bots, so if we decide to do something like this, well need someone who knows bots.Canary 11:04, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

There is a standard order, which is defined in the documentation for the {{infobox character}} template. The fact that some articles don't use those fields is just an over-sight, probably stemming from people's unfamiliarity with the template documentation  ♥ kine @ 20:39, 10 September 2014 (UTC)
