Cautionary romanization[edit]

Previously I point out about blindly using ygor's name translation https://yugipedia.com/wiki/Talk:Harr,_Generaider_Boss_of_Storms Looking at Zeus I 'm afraid this will happen again. ygorg romanize the アー as AA. When OCG want to spell them like that they usually directly use roman alphabet (LL, RR, WW). Time will tell if this is another fluke of already piled up intentional 'prank' by ygorg translator.

"The English name given is not official.". Why u gotta be salty? These are tentative names.BerserkerPhantom (talkcontribs) 01:23, 26 July 2020 (UTC)
For the record, it's not that we "blindly" use YGOrg's translations, it's that we deliberately use the same names as YGOrg so that they can do all of the due diligence to select an appropriate English translation. There isn't a single unique translation that is appropriate, so this ensures that there is a consistent name across the two sites. --SnorlaxMonster 07:42, 26 July 2020 (UTC)
We based it off of the playmat: https://ygorganization.com/mechamechafruituser/ Konami has indicated they want アーゼウス as AA-Zeus. Is. Is using Konami's own official product somehow problematic now? NeoArkadia (talkcontribs) 07:57, 26 July 2020 (UTC)
Basically whether you feel afraid or concerned, it wouldn't have mattered anyways. A name is a name, deal with it. Vortexdome (talkcontribs) 09:27, 26 July 2020 (UTC)
Vortexdome, we don't want to discourage people questioning card name translations. Occasionally there are mistakes (see "Infernity Supression" for example), or there are reasons that one translation might be more appropriate than another. If someone thinks that there is an issue with a card name, they should bring it up on the talk page (although such discussions shouldn't be assuming that the current name was chosen as a "prank"). --SnorlaxMonster 10:11, 26 July 2020 (UTC)
