Made a new FMA community. It's: mustangs_gang. It's still a work in progress but if you're interested you can join. We will be making serious changes probably tomorrow or something, so please don't have a fit. That's all I have to report -nods-

X33 Love the pictures in the community profile. What does the katakana say? I can read it, just... I don't understand what it's supposed to say. ^^;;

"he yu mo ya chi..."

Euh, none of them seem to say anything, theyre just gibberish I guess
volumesix on December 12th, 2004 09:48 pm (UTC)
Okay. Thanks!

It's just Japanese looking font, if that's what you're talking about. Sorry for the confusion ^^

I hope you or the editors of the image do not take any offense, but it seems like whomever edited those pictures merely used a form of typing Japanese in windows that replaces certain keys with assigned characters. (Meaning that they are indeed Japanese katakana characters that can be 'read' but they don't represent or stand for the English letters or equivalents at all)

I imagine the attempt was to write what was in English in 'Japanese' but it didn't turn out that way.

It is completely up to you and your community as to what you would like to do with it, but you might end up dealing with the confusion of a few more people who are at least aware of katakana and how to read it.

In any case, if the original creator of edits or someone else has the desire to re-edit them, it is not out of the question to actually use either strick katakana 'spellings' of the words, (such as ma-su-ta-n-gu-su ga-n-gu for Mustang's Gang) or direct Japanese translations.

As this community is pretty nice, you or someone else could probably even ask the members here if someone would be willing. There seems to be quite a few who are knowledgeable in Japanese, even if many are very modest about their skills. ^^

Once again, this is just intended as a friendly recommendation. I've seen people before in a variety of places who used this method to 'type in Japanese' and while there are a variety of reasons for doing so, I wasn't sure which your group fell under and whether or not that particularly concerned you.

Since you are planning to make changes, I only thought the suggestion would help. ^^

Thanks for the suggestions, but I was just having fun using Japanese font and such on these temporary images. :D Nothing is for sure yet on this community as in I just decided to put the page up for starters. Tomorrow we should be working on the new layout, images, and blog crew images. I really appreciate the suggestions and such :D

Ah. Okay. That's fine, and I'm glad I didn't offend you, hopefully. ^^

I forgot to say it before, but the community is already looking rather nice. Good luck with it.
