I changed the format of the appearances sections a little. I hope no one minds. I think it's a good idea to treat every game released as a separate appearance, along with fan patches. Some system could be used to note the official region of the releases if the names clash, or just for clarity sake.
Also any reading section that first mentions a name from an Atlus USA game, should include the original name in parenthesis like at the top of an article. So like someone said... if there is a paragraph that mentions "Teddy" from P4, then after the first instance of Teddy should be (Kuma クマ) or whatever the kana spelling is (I won't be playing P4 because I tried one night and we just crammed down one button for hours and the game never started)--Yksehtniycul 13:38, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
- That strikes me as somewhat unnecessary as it's not like fan patches frequently remove or add demons, and the localizations haven't been either. There are occasional name changes, which are usually noted in a separate section like with Cu Chulainn. Additionally, this may not have been you, but the appearance usually lists the demon's class or arcana or family as well. However, you are entirely right that there should be the original name following the localized one. And yeah, P4 has almost 3 hours of talking before you get the actually doing something. :p SeventhEvening 17:04, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
- I don't think it's excessive at all. These are technically different appearances in technically different productions. And also this presents a clear opportunity to differentiate between stuff like Youjuu or Wilder like we spoke of before. This is actually a much cleaner way to approach this than say Youjuu (Wilder) ... and it gives you a chance to clarify that the names documenting the Japanese games are just English approximations. The only thing that would make more sense might be to somehow sort the appearances by region. I think a wiki should strive to accommodate all information, and it should be conveniently available as well. You shouldn't have to navigate to other pages to figure out what is going on in a section.
