聖母の慈悲 does indeed mean Virgin Mary's Mercy. (聖母 literally means Divine Mother, but is the standard term for the Virgin Mary in Japanese.) However, the term 聖母崇拝 meaning Virgin Mary Worship is also used in Volume 16 several times."
Hello, I wanted to ask you about the character Ridovia Lorenzetti, the LN has it as Lidovia instead. Is the reason why it's not an L a personal belief? didn't know which of the 3 to bring this too. so I randomized.
Sorry for the late reply. I was aware of the terms list but thanks for pointing it out anyway. I'm currently working on several drafts regarding the new terms, though they will not be posted on the main wiki until the whole novel is fully translated, as per the restriction rule (this restriction is also present on existing articles regarding any additions with NT10 information).
Enter in the name of the category you want to make at the bottom of the relevant article(s) or in the editor, how you would if you were adding an existing category - if done without the editor it produces a red-link but it should still produce the category. You then categorise/edit it etc, as normal.
Re reading Volume 19, I just remembered that Stephanie Gorgeouspalace fought in a civil war in Costa Rica, when the last one in real life was in 1948 and was followed by Costa Rica abolishing its army (I doubt it was this one, or Stephanie would be more than 70 years old). So I thought about either:
1. Making a "Costa Rica" article
2. Making an article on the civil war (it would be brief, but so is the "Soldier I. Krainikov" article.
3. Do both articles
What do you recommand? And also, I thought of naming the second one "Second Costan Rican Civil War", but I need a second opinion on whether it is a good idea considering we know nothing about the conflict.
Using the magical powers of google translator, it turns out that their username translates to Kazuma Kamachi. I honestly hope it really is the author and not some troll, but I know in my heart that the latter is far more probable than the former.
Hello! I was thinking that maybe we could create an info template for countries, like on Wikipedia? A bit like the churches have, with the box having the name of the country, the flag, the language(s) spoken, the capital, the number of inhabitants (like how there are 90m British in ToAru verse), the main religion (or in majority), the Sides they are on, etc. Possibly applying the same for things like the EU and the Pound Economy.
While some countries in the ToAru universe don't have as much info on them like the UK and the US do (and Academy City doesn't even have a flag!), I think it would make the countries articles look more streamlined and clean, as opposed to now where the flags get in the way when editing or creating articles.
1-I have recently been made aware of the existence of the compass rose of the Anglican Communion, the official symbol and flag of Anglicanism. Knowing that, should it be added to the Church of England's article, thus replacing the cross of St. George, or should no change be made?
2-Considering the subject matter of the current Railgun manga's Dream Ranker Arc, coupled with what has been introduced thus far in the Accelerator manga, do you reckon that a new article about the concept of "Soul" within the ToAru Universe should be created? Both the necromancy and the magical life forms articles lightly brush the subjects, but such an article would be more in-depth.
How would you like the initial soul draft to be done; would you like to do it, would you like me to do it, or shall we do it together?
Regarding the Voodoo bit, I wasn't sure before whether you wanted it for the article draft you were composing or not, but I put an interested note by it on the NT15 subject list in case you did. Apologies if this was a bit presumptive.
Hi sorry to bother you=D
I had an idea a few weeks back on improvements that could be made to the pages for esper abilities this idea included adding to those pages what we have seen those abilities do at different "Levels" this would be most effective on the Electromaster page but as the series progresses we are bound to see more abilities at different levels as well. just wondering whether anyone thinks this is a good idea or not, I asked one of the admins earlier in the month but they haven't seemed to replied to me yet.
I'm still bogged down with work and can't respond in detail at the moment, but I've had a quick look at the proposed idea and the earlier thread.
From a quick glance, it is a bit of a mixed bag (some good bits, some not so good bits, bits needing tweaking). Though there is enough information for Electromaster from the series, it wouldn't be particularly viable for the majority of the ability articles, even with progress. The Electromaster article is in need of an overhaul and will likely be receiving one at some point (there is still a lot of other work to be done) - the relevant information would likely be refined and incorporated into the text then.
