Moving Page

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)

Intrusive ads

Currently on the site I'm seeing two huge ads as static images on both sides of the screen. They appear to be some sci-fi VR game but display no links upon mouseover. My adblocker actually blocks the page if I try to click on it (I have it disabled on SW normally). The ad doesn't show any names on itself, but the adblocker says it's from The ads extend past the side margins of the screen and doesn't go away when changing pages, which makes them very obnoxious compared to the standard ads. Hope someone can look into that. T.testLP(talk) 04:51, 23 November 2017 (UTC)

If you see it again, can you take a screenshot? -- Prod (talk) 13:28, 23 November 2017 (UTC)

Broken link

What's with the "StrategyWiki:Guide Completion" link in Most Wanted? --WarioTalk 19:39, 28 November 2017 (UTC)

Artifact of the script... It's refreshed now. -- Prod (talk) 03:05, 29 November 2017 (UTC)
