Re: Keshi Heads' new look


It has turned out great-looking! I'm a huge fan of the randomly-generating Takeshi's Castle game cartoons on the banner (and I just got my first Mushroom Trip..) emoticon

The fun facts are great, too! A bit less rambling than the few rough drafts I tried to make.. emoticon There are a couple that I think would be nice to have that I'll post-up soon. Others may disagree emoticon

All in all, this really helped in updating the site AND forum and keeping it relevant. I really hope this allows the site to be more popular, but it's hard for that to happen when both forums and simply informational websites appear to be a dying breed emoticon

The forum on the phone is amazing - the page is no longer ten times wider than necessary emoticon

 emoticon It looks great! The cut-off thing is annoying, but it seems to be a rare issue, so hopefully that's alright for all.

Great new look Dan - fantastic work! emoticon

Re: Keshi Heads' new look


I found a typo that's pretty small and hidden:
In the "About" section under "UK Series," the line "Hayato Tani returned to his roll," roll should be role.

This one isn't a typo, but I'm pretty sure the translation of the Japanese title for Animuddle is wrong, unless "ko" was just written in kana for the title.

This one isn't a typo either, but technically wrong info. The BGM for Slip Way should really be titled "Colonel Bogey March," as the song is much older than the film. Maybe credit it as both? This one might just be a nitpick.

Another BGM one: Animal's Theme probably isn't by a group called Territories. It's based on (pretty much rips off! emoticon ) a song called Territories by Rush, from their 1985 album Power Windows.

OK, one more BGM one: The full title of the BGM for Roulette should be "Tank Police no Korinai Menmen".

The new site looks great. Quite a bit easier to navigate. emoticon

I've found another numbering typo in Space Invaders' variations section. It says Ep 11 for Laser Eye when it should be 108 & 109.

There's another typo in Quake's variations page for Ep 36, the Couples special. It says "sho are down on all fours". The sho should be "who".

Possible Errors

Animuddle

-Dunno, but you didn't link to 'Show Down' in "Extra Info," as you did do for Home Run/Bridge Ball's mention in Bridge Bowl.

Avalanche

-Maybe overpicky, but why not say "From episode 24 onward," since it tells you that all the episodes afterward had them?

Ball Cupping

-The aim is to catch it the ball in their bowl.

-where the ball is getting knocked around too (only one 'o').

Big Bird

-Half way through their journey... (probably should be one word).

Bite the Bun

-There are less buns than contestants. (Okay, this is probably only me who cares, but apparently you should use "fewer" for countable things emoticon )

-Lots of buns, or other bread-based food, (plural after "food"? I dunno.)

Blueberry Hill

-Episode 86 had the 'Snow Fall' variation too, Mr. Dan.

Boulder Dash

-If they slip down to the bottom of the hill they lose and are out. (Should a comma be there? I'm actually asking, I can't tell)

-Fun fact request: First game to be eliminated from TC

Brat Sack

-The parents have to find their own kid; but they aren't able to see into the bags. (Just use a comma? Using "but" makes the semicolon redundant)

-Not a correction but: How'd you find these extra facts like the producers thinking people would lose, but everyone winning?!

Bridge Ball

-narrow unstable (Add a comma, I think).

-While they're on the bridge; guards will fire balls (I think you just need a comma, again?)

-Can't the Guards shaking a brigde just be a variation, since it was only done in episode 6?

Bridge Bowl

-narrow wobbly (Comma?)

-It's Japanese name (You don't need an apostrophe for possessive)

-If they don't make it to the end of the plank quick enough... (You might as well do "quickly")

-"Here they must wait for the second plank to reach them step onto it." (maybe add "and" or something. Guessing you got up to do something while typing this, as I've had this happen to me A LOT)

Buggy Me

-"When the starting pistol is fired; the contestants first dash" (Comma instead of semicolon? I hope I'm not wrong about this rule lol)

-"created espeically for an episode" (Just a typo)

-Who knew about the handicap, glad you found that!

Cheeze-berry Hill

Fun fact request: Why not mention that the hill is steeper, but shorter

Deep Float

-Mention the life jackets? They look heavy and would probably make climbing up tougher.

Dino Ride

-"If contestant manages to wet the bat enough"(Just add "the"!)

Even though there are typos, it's great nonetheless.

Never realised the high rollers were meant to be a dinosaur, great fact.

When you click on the Leap Frog game, it says Leap Flog as the title, only once clicked on though.

Thanks for all the corrections everyone, I've fixed them.

The "yo" would usually be a kanji too, so the whole word is written in hiragana for... whatever reason! The only thing I could find "yoiko" meaning was "good child", and it makes sense with it being big jigsaw puzzles?

I just did a quick Google and you're right - that song was used as his theme in baseball games. It was just known as Animal's Theme.

I did, haha! I have no idea how it got switched back again emoticon


I haven't changed all of the things you pointed out as some things as just personal preference/what sounds right to your own ears. Are you sure you're not rsmcc with your nitpicking?... emoticon

rsmcc? *runs far, far away*

Actually, I'm worse than rsmcc emoticon That's fair enough! I guess some of those rules I read are by annoying grammarians and such. I'm just going through and seeing whatever I can find - including some unnecessary stuff, apparently emoticon

I will keep listing, though try not to nitpick as much emoticon

PS: Cool seeing you post again!

I guess I'm reading it as "yoi kono e awase" which is something along the lines of "Join These Pictures Good" with the causative form of the verb "au" (to join).

I think you mentioned that you studied Japanese, and I am too (with a lot of futility! emoticon ). So, it's kind of fun to translate the original titles. Any practice is good practice, right?

Re:


I think you're reading it right actually, I combined the wrong characters together! Too easily done in Japanese. Uses spaces between your words goddammit emoticon
I did have it named "Join These Pictures Right" on the old page, so I guess it was correct first time around! I'll change it...
