Wiktionary:Requested entries (Japanese)

The page is full of rōmaji, which is a romanisation for Japanese, not the native Japanese script, which can be kanji, hiragana and katakana only. --Anatoli T. (обсудить/вклад) 05:58, 30 September 2014 (UTC)

So create the kanji/kana entries referred to by the romaji. Most people who use request pages don't speak the languages they're adding requests for, so it's unrealistic to expect them to only use scripts they don't know in order to make a request. Chuck Entz (talk) 07:25, 30 September 2014 (UTC)
Yes, you're right. It still needs cleaning up. Lots of names of parks or mountains, mixed with kanji/kana as original requests and there is a similar page Wiktionary:Requested entries:Japanese/Non-romaji for kanji/kana terms. --Anatoli T. (обсудить/вклад) 07:38, 30 September 2014 (UTC)

Wiktionary:Requested entries (Japanese) and Wiktionary:Requested entries:Japanese/Non-romaji

Both pages do the same thing - request new Japanese entries Wiktionary:Requested entries (Japanese) and Wiktionary:Requested entries:Japanese/Non-romaji. The latter should be removed, IMO but the former has a lot of rubbish - rōmaji entries or English entries derived from Japanese. I suggest to disallow rōmaji entry requests. --Anatoli T. (обсудить/вклад) 05:49, 30 September 2014 (UTC)

The romaji on the Wiktionary:Requested entries (Japanese) page is there by design and intent -- users who cannot read or write Japanese might still have a valid reason for wanting to request entry creation, and romaji (i.e. the Latin alphabet) is the only script that we can safely assume that our users can read and write. As such, I must disagree with your request to disallow romaji requests.
I also noticed that you added an RFC to the Wiktionary:Requested entries (Japanese) page, apparently as an objection to the presence of romaji. I could certainly support a general call to clean up the request page in general, but the presence of romaji alone is not sufficient reason for an RFC. ‑‑ Eiríkr Útlendi │ Tala við mig 00:55, 17 October 2014 (UTC)
