Page names pt2

In continuation with previous "Page names" Thread:47992

To start off, there was never an agreement or vote to change Kamui Gakupo to Camui Gackpo. I went through pages that had this name and reverted it back to how it is presented on SingSongWriters' licensing page. Unless someone here can or has contact with Internet Company then Camui Gackpo is only to be used on Kamui Gakupo's etymology section.

If this particular name is such an issue then the following would also be favored: Yuduki over Yuzuki, Ruka over Luka, and Hatune over Hatsune. All are romanized but obviously people take liberties with it based on the language given.

Lola and Leon having gender symbols, I don't know how the wiki or the search engine would react to this.

....Except Luka and Hatsune are both official and confirmed by Crypton. I don't know nor really care about Yukari's name. I can live with LOLA and LEON's name without the gender symbol, as it's a pain in the arse to write their names like that. Camui Gackpo is also used officially.

On Leon and Lola + use of symbols; thank god for redirects, the symbols would prevent a search if not for redirects... :-/

I think Xey is the one behind any change of "Camui" because he keeps using that in general talk and is the only one doing so. At this stage we have 4 or 5 versions of the name in use.

KarenT, VocaloTracks (INTERNET CO'S OFFICIAL LABEL), and the Japanese all type it out as Camui Gackpo. It only makes more sense too, why would it be "Gakupo" when the product name is "Gackpoid"? His name is an obvious reference to his voice provider, Camui Gackt. Their names Camui are spelled the exact same in Japanese too but GACKT's named is romanized Camui. Gackpo derives from "GACKT" too, why would they used "Gack" in Gackpoid and not his name?

I've only seen Keitaigackpo with the provider involved. So again, confirm it by a screen cap with the company, not a music page that has various producers spelling it out how they want or using other third party connections.

If there is no problem with the symbols then a bot can run through the pages to switch everything over.

Update on my renaming progress. I believe the template I created will now ease my mind about renaming the various pages, but there needs to be some settlement on a few of the loids product names.

Template

  • The poid series. Are these commonly capitalized to play off the VOCALOID(tm) or are they free to be proper case?
  • I placed (VOCALOID#) on their product name, not sure if I should remove it or not.
  • For the Cryptonloids. They are given various names when using the Icons template. Especially when it goes into the Appends.
  • Leaving or Renaming _(Vocaloid#) to _(VOCALOID#) when it comes to the voice bank page.

eta And I will be editing. August 31st

I wish we could find another name for the "Spanish Feminine Vocaloid" because such a vague name has bugged me since it was created.

I know everyone is fed up but there *must* be at least another lesser vague name. RI've had my head around this one for weeks. So I'm putting this out there; is there anyway we can find a BETTER less vague name for the page, anyone got any idea? :-/

Just a note; in the past when silhouettes were revealed we just had them on the main "upcoming" section with or without the name. So this has bugged me how we went so "unprofessional" and broke our trends on this one when Status] could have held everything at least until we have a name to go by.

For now though since we're stuck 2with this one, I'd just like it to be given a much better name if possible...
