Creation Issue[edit]

I know that new users like me can't create pages, but this includes our user page and talk page, and it is super annoying. Can you please fix it? Pinkyoshifan (talk) 21:15, 9 September 2017 (UTC)

We had disabled it for some time since we were getting really bad spam. I've re-enabled the permissions, so please try now. -- Prod (talk) 21:53, 9 September 2017 (UTC)

Moving Page[edit]

Can someone move Yuu Maze and its branch pages to Youmais? The latter is official romanization of the title, but the large portion of internet gets this name wrong for some reason. --Looki (talk) 05:36, 18 November 2017 (UTC)

Romanization is kind of a subjective thing. 遊メイズ very literally translates to Yuu Maze, and one could argue that the instance of the Youmais text in the game is actually a bad translation. Due to the fact that the majority of the internet refers to the game as Yuu Maze, including the No-Intro set, that's how most viewers will be searching for information about the game. I'm worried that if we change it, people will be less able to find the information they are looking for. So for the time being, I'd say we should leave it the way it is. If you have a stronger argument for the title change, feel free to provide one here. Procyon 18:08, 18 November 2017 (UTC)
Youmais is definitely a wacky romanization, yes. However, this game is meant to based on Taito's 1988 arcade predecessor, Raimais. "Youmais" and "Raimais". You can see the pattern that two names are deliberately related to each other. That subtle implication is lost when you write it as "Yuu Maze". If the developer decided to go with so, I think we should respect that as well (if you're wondering where "Youmais" spelling came from, here it is, right at the menu screen). As for notability problem, that's what redirect exists for, isn't it? We can also create another paragraph in the article describing that the game's often mispelled as "Yuu Maze". That way, people won't miss this page via Google search.--Looki (talk) 03:19, 19 November 2017 (UTC)
