Since I'm a new wiki mod, I encounter folks who want to change names of Naruto characters and other things in the wiki queue. Because I dropped a Naruto a long time ago, all I have to depend on is Naruto Wikia, FoxxFireArt, and you guys and gals.
I'm opening a discussion thread for the Naruto wiki community here.
This is what teammate, Daniel Newton, put as a guideline for Anime Vice:
#1-3 must be translated by official anime and manga publishers.
- English anime dub
- English anime sub
- English manga version
- Literal manga translation
Recent Changes and Debates
- Hagoromo Ohtsutsuki - One editor proposed to change it to Hagoromo Ōtsutsuki. Foxx and the others said that we have to go with Viz Media's translation not Naruto Wikia's.
- Ten Tails - One editor tried to change Ten Tails to Shinju throughout the whole article. As of now, I said we stick with Ten Tails because that's what Viz Media uses. Both names are right.
If you have questions or want to propose a change, leave a comment here instead of explaining or arguing in the wiki queue. It was tough for me approving Naruto wiki submissions without much knowledge on the series. Typically, I leave it for Foxx, but I think he's too busy. One wiki editor I asked said this: "Both of the ten tails and Shinju is correct. But only use Shinju for the tree form, not the beast form." I agree with him. We are sticking with Ten Tails as the official name until the dub anime reaches that point. We will see what the dub will pick.
