Ah, ok, so I know what happened. When I was browsing the School Rumble character list, for some reason I missed Tenma Tsukamoto's name...so I made one for her, only to realize that it had been made already, and I just missed it. Anyways, sorry to make your life harder sothis, but that mishap should be fixed. I'll be careful from now on.

Le Chevalier D'Eon shares some of the same historical figures as Rose of Versailles. I was wondering, would we create new entries for them, or should we just link these characters to both anime?

just added a note about suffixes:

Quote:
Suffixes (san, kun, etc) should be avoided unless it is the ONLY name the character is known by, for visible names (ie, anything except 'searchable'). Otherwise, add as a searchable name only. Suffixes should be attached with a dash - , such as 'Sara-kun', not 'Sara kun'

imo they would be totally separate characters. it's gray area for sure, but in general if a series was made by a totally different studio/etc, it should be considered a separate character. then again if a character shows up in a ton of series in a franchise, even alt universes, right now we're treating them as the same character. but again this is gray area - it's definitely best to ask, which you did, so that's great :)

I've just submitted a character, but I guess I did something wrong since the name of the anime does not appear in the submission's title =/ Should I write it in the gaps for First or Last Name?

(I hope the rest will be okay...)

We'll figure it out. In the future, fill out the "Main Anime" field, as well. That's where the thread title gets its info from.

Oh, all right... But doesn't it say in this thread that moderators fill those fields?

Anyway, thanks for answering.

I'm trying to submit the character Taro from the manga Black Bird. Taro doesn't have a last name, so I put his URL string in as "taro". However apparently there is already another character named Taro, from the anime Serial Experiments Lain, that already uses that URL string.

So, in short, what should we do when the URL string is already being used by another character?
