Hey, guys! Since there has been a lot of talk about standardizing character pages and data tables, I just wanted to make sure that we were all in agreeance with a few things here!
1) First and foremost, is everybody in favor of keeping the Japanese text in the data tables?
I personally think we should leave it as is (unless there is an obvious translation error) since the information is helpful to those playing Imperial SaGa or the original versions, as not all attack names were kept the same when the games were translated to English. ^^; I'm also bringing this up because of the GB games, which we have recently decided to rename from the westernized title "Final Fantasy Legend I-III" for the purpose of this wiki. I'd assume because we're trying to keep them as SaGa as possible, we will want the original Japanese names anyway, as some of the westernized name changes for attacks/weapons are...bizarre--and at times inaccurate? But it doesn't seem fair to leave them out because that's what most people probably know them by! xD
2) Who here is currently planning to create templates? Which templates will you be working on? Anything you think shouldn't be part of the template for a particular game?
3) Has anybody else here studied the Japanese language at some point in their life besides me? Just wondering because it would be nice if we could get a group of people together to work on translating character background stories, summaries, and whatnot from the manga, artbooks, and Imperial SaGa. One of my friends (who is not into SaGa) has been helping with the proofreading. My goal is to get more information up about the Seven Heroes and Abyss Lords, who got more background and personalities outside of RS2 and RS3. :) SaGa Scarlet Grace is also a very sad place right now. I started working on a translation for the game's story/summary, but got busy. ;_; So if somebody wants to write about the battle mechanics that would be super helpful! :D
I know I had another question for everybody, but I totally forgot what it was about. Whooops. Anyway feel free to add more questions and concerns for your fellow editors here. :D We might as well have a single thread as a reference as opposed to ten!
