Post by: Tamashii on September 03, 2005, 05:36:17 PM
Post any errors you see throughout the site, particularly in the database. Even if you see the tiniest error, such as a spelling mistake, please take some time to report it here. You can mention anything text-related, graphics, files, anything.

I'm not going to say 'The site has been updated, so go check it out' like I have in the past. Reviewers and forum go-ers alike, you have the responsibility of visiting the site everytime you visit the forums, just in case there is an update. Don't be a moron and think that we're dead just because you won't leave the forums.

I would like to mention that there is no link to my Castle of Cagliostro review until you click on another review.

I'm afraid I do not know what you're talking about. Everything is 100% on my side. Remember, you can only access the reviews on the right side panel. When we figure it out, we'll make the navigation like it should be, but for now that's how it is.

Kuma's Lupin III review:  "Lupin even wears the green jacket, what more could you ask for from a Lupin movie?"

Should probably be:

"Lupin even wears the green jacket; what more could you ask for from a Lupin movie?"

Yup. Or they could be two separate sentences. Fixed.

A couple of things:

1.  James Bond and Sherlock Holmes should probably be underlined in my Castle of Cagliostro review.  There is also a "w" at the end of the Action/Comedy in said review.

2.  Somehow all the mentions of Ranma 1/2 in my Maze review ended up as, "Ranma ½"

3.  This one is my fault.  I used the phrase "come up with" twice in the last sentence of my Rune Soldier review.  This is bad writing on my part-the last sentence would be better as, "...himself would have been proud to have created."

I don't think so, because they're both fictional characters.

Yeah, fictional characters do not get the underline treatment.

Everything else you've pointed out, Kuma, has been fixed.

My "He Is My Master" review.  "Humor" should be "Humour"...  (as we agreed to ;)).
Title: Error Corrections
Post by: Tamashii on October 04, 2005, 03:01:33 PM
I'm confused...what? Does it matter whether it's "our" or "or"? It's the same thing.
Title: Error Corrections
Post by: Kuma on October 04, 2005, 03:21:47 PM
It doesn't really matter, but for consistency we should probably stick with the American spelling, "or."
Title: Error Corrections
Post by: Sorrow-kun on October 04, 2005, 05:06:25 PM
I made an agreement with Pheld that all my "or"s will be "our"s.

What consistency? The larger number of American reviewers for your site as opposed to those such as Sorrow-kun? What if, over time, AMG (or whatever you're going to call it) became composed of mainly reviewers from Britain, Oz, Canadia, etc.?

Over at AS, it really doesn't matter if you use '-our' instead of '-or'. For example, three of our reviewers are Canadian, and use what they are used to; we don't make them conform into using '-or' instead. It really shouldn't be an issue for your site.

And yeah, I know I'm late on the subject. :p
Title: Error Corrections
Post by: Tamashii on October 05, 2005, 12:04:29 PM
It has been changed to 'Humour' as you have requested, Sorrow-kun (yesterday). I was not aware of your agreement with Pheld, so sorry about that little misunderstanding.

And yes, "-our" or "-or" should be left alone. There's no need to make "Colour" into "Color" beacuse they are the same and neither are incorrect in any sense.

Where do I begin?

Tale's Spirit of Wonder review

"Characters: Straight fromv cookie-cutter."

"my favorite by far is his Journey around the moon where an engineer and and millionnaire"

Kuma's Cat Returns review

"The cat came back the very next day, thought he was a goner…never mind."  I don't get what this means.

Lots of other various errors here and there.  Too many to list.  But the point of this post is just to point out that there's an issue with a lot of the new reviews.  They don't appear to have been proofread very well.
Title: Error Corrections
Post by: Tamashii on October 15, 2005, 08:05:31 AM
I didn't proofread them yet and I told DK and Pheld (I think...) that the drafts should not be uploaded until I do them...

Well, this is the result. I'll try to do as much as I can today because it's my only "free" day for the site.

EDIT: Actually the Cat's Return is not an error. That is an allusion to The Cat Came Back, a children's song.

In Sorrow-kun's Petite Cosette review, the second date is 22/12/something.
Title: Error Corrections
Post by: Sorrow-kun on November 01, 2005, 02:27:47 AM
Yeah, I've been submitting the dates in all my reviews in Australian format (ie dd/mm/yyyy).  I don't care if those get changed, if out of consistancy than anything else between reviews.... but I still don't want my "colours" and "flavours" to be changed.

Quote
However, I submit that its story is a fascinating yarn that ranks among the best romance that anime has seen and that, even without an attempt to create the pulsating atmosphere it did, Petit Cossette still would have been an interesting tale.
should be "romances".  It's funny how you're more likely to spot errors if you haven't read your work for a couple of weeks.
Title: Error Corrections
Post by: Tamashii on November 01, 2005, 02:37:47 PM
I'll fix the dates if I can notice them. Sometimes I see things like 10/7/something and I'm never really sure if it's July or October, that's why I always encourage MONTH/DAY/YEAR.

I did not proof-read the reviews just uploaded (except for Smile), so I'd like to apologize, just in case any of you thought I did. :(

My le Portrait de Petit Cosette review has been uploaded twice.

Also, in my Futakoi Alternative review:  "but the supposed polar opposite of the original bland harem is actually an engrossing, and highly unconventional story surrounded a set of believable, yet inspired characters."  Should be "surrounding".

i dont know wether or not to post this hear but it seems that your email accounts (all of them) are inactive and will NOT recieve any incoming emails :(
Title: Re: Error Corrections
Post by: Sorrow-kun on March 14, 2009, 04:29:35 PM
That sounds like a problem with your end, because I'm pretty sure there's nothing wrong with the email system.  You do realize that all our email addresses are protected by reCAPTCHA.  The email addresses in our profiles are deliberately incomplete, and to get the real email addresses, you must click on the three dots like these "...", and then solve a reCAPTCHA.  Otherwise, all email addresses are simply the staff member's SN followed by "@nihonreview.com".

If there's a specific email address that doesn't work, report it here.  If none of the them work, wait and try again later, it might be a temporary server problem.  But I'm pretty sure they're not all broken.

no i figured that out, and i got the email adress correct, i even went on to email you. the emailer for aol said that after trying to forward the email to your account that your account was inactive... hrm... ill probly try my gmail acount later and see what happens, sorry about sounding like total idiot xD

Not sure whether here is the right place for this, but I just have a very minor issue about my TTGL - Gh review. I just request this portion - "2-hour movie " - of the last sentence, to be replaced with "the movie" because otherwise, it sounds repetitive in relations to its preceding sentence.

Damn, I'm awfully nitpicky this time for some reason...

The site's currently only sending a php file instead of html. Had already happened in the last few days. At least this time the forums' still working.
Though I'm probably stating the obvious.
Title: Re: Error Corrections
Post by: Sorrow-kun on January 12, 2010, 05:30:52 PM
You mean the main page?  I'm pretty sure it always did that.  I'm not even aware there is a html page.
Title: Re: Error Corrections
Post by: Thot on January 13, 2010, 05:41:11 AM
Normally, the server shouldn't send the php file unprocessed.
I.e. if the file contains something like '<?php include(file) ?>', it should return a html page.
If it instead sends the php code, there's something wrong. And it did just that.

Like, you have a file index.php that contains '<?php echo (2+2) ?>'. When requesting that page, the server should return a page containing '4'.
What it did is return '<?php echo (2+2) ?>'.
Title: Re: Error Corrections
Post by: Sorrow-kun on January 13, 2010, 05:51:11 AM
Ok, I see what you're saying now, but I'm seeing the main page completely fine and have so for at least the time period you're talking about.  I'm thinking this might be a problem at your end, but to be sure, is anyone else having this problem?
Title: Re: Error Corrections

Me sees no problem.
Title: Re: Error Corrections
Post by: Thot on January 14, 2010, 04:17:00 AM
Can't be a problem on my end since I couldn't receive the php code if the server didn't send it unprocessed. Which it isn't supposed to do.
Well, it's working now. I'll post if it happens again.

I don't know whether this is intentional or an error - spoilers are completely invisible for guests, at least in Firefox and Konqueror.
Also, logging in with Konqueror doesn't work. Could very likely be a bug on Konquerors site though (cookies are being received and accepted).

I don't know if my PM to the writer went through or not because I couldn't find my message in the inbox, but the parts I got to read of his Katanagatari review were just so good that I had to register to let him/her know that there was a tiny typo!

Here's the paragraph: However, anyone who does manage it (through experience and/or force of will) will find that the torrent of dialogue is very important to the story as a whole. Through dialogue, every major character lays our their stories and their motivations, and play off each other to a significant degree not often seen in most anime.

I believe he/she meant to say "lays out", not "lays our". Very tiny mistake. Hope that helps! And awesome review btw!

Lately I've been getting errors every time I got to make a post.  The most common one seems to be where it claims that "Your request timed out. Please retry the request." the first time I go to post something.  Usually this is solved by backing up and then clicking the post button again but sometimes even that doesn't work and I'm forced to either copy the contents, open a new tab after a minute or so and make the attempt again and at worst being forced to scuttle the post entirely when I'm on a device where doing that isn't as easy.  Has anyone else been encountering this problem or know what might be causing it?  It's been happening for about a week now I'd say and I waited to see if it would go away before mentioning anything but it hasn't yet.

Hi KS, if you're still getting these errors please inform us. The forum has been much more stable recently, so we're hoping that the same issue won't happen again.

After being logged for some time in the Nihon Review, I am now labelled as a spambot. I pretty much resolved the problem by clearing everything in my Chrome's history but I am curious as to why it happens at times. Thank you.

It's only a message board stating that the site is apologizing since they cannot let me log because I am now labelled a spambot when I tried to log in. It also states that it will not be lifted unless I send the administrators a message. It happens from time to time. It bothered me at first but well, it can be solved so I am fine with that.

Have you sent an admin a message?

I only say this because I went and looked through the mod queue and the ban list and I can't figure out why you're seeing that.  Unless you're using proxy servers and one of the proxies got banned?
Title: Re: Error Corrections
Post by: samui on August 11, 2015, 12:27:50 AM
I did, maybe they lifted it since I can post in this forum as of the moment. The last time I logged before I got banned is I clicked 'forever' for the time I am in this site. Maybe my Google Chrome is to blame because I remember seeing a similar message when I tried to use the google search engine one time.

Yes. I think that's the case? I really don't know. I am not good with infotech terms. I am sorry.
