Thanks for updating the janoun templates and getting rid of the subst:ed kanjitabs. When moving a suru verb from its noun page, remember to add a {{see|〜する}} link below the kanjitab: [1]. Cynewulf 22:09, 13 March 2007 (UTC)

Yes, nice work! Robert Ullmann 11:31, 15 March 2007 (UTC)

Stroke Order[edit]

Hi, thank you for adding stroke orders, but could you please check out the existing ones like , , or . The radical's count should be excluded. Cheers! --Tohru 23:56, 19 March 2007 (UTC)

Um, this isn't true ... the strokes= parameter in the {{stroke order}} template should be the the total strokes in the character. It is used to set the image size so they are all the same. (not used for animated; none of those examples use the -bw image?) Robert Ullmann 17:46, 20 March 2007 (UTC)
Ah, Tohru is talking about the rs= parameter, not "order". Yes, it is radical + additional strokes. Robert Ullmann 17:48, 20 March 2007 (UTC)

Kanji grading[edit]

Very good ... thanks for all that you are doing!

Does your AWB regex take out the explicit "Category:Grade 2 kanji" in some entries? It should, of course; then the template will use the correct sort key. Robert Ullmann 09:08, 23 March 2007 (UTC)

you might want to change your AWB comment paramater -> parameter ? Robert Ullmann 22:26, 25 March 2007 (UTC)

just a note on format of entries[edit]

Hi, I saw you make kanpai and there were a few minor formatting problems. Please look at this edit to see how entries like kanpai (i.e. romaji entries) are typically formatted. Thanks. 50 Xylophone Players talk 00:19, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

Japanese question[edit]

Seeing as you are the only one who's recently edited in the Japanese department, I wonder if you could answer a question of mine. I've been trying to rationalise the headings that are in use on Wiktionary, and I'm nearly there, but there are several CJK, particularly Japanese, with headings "X readings" or "X reading" (see User:Conrad.Irwin/pos_errors for more detail). What does this mean? Is there a better way of phrasing it? Conrad.Irwin 07:52, 16 May 2010 (UTC)
