Starting Monday, January 12, 2015, I will be starting a full time job from 16:00 (UTC) to 00:30 (UTC), plus commute. Therefore, my services will be limited to my home time and weekends. Rest assured, I will continue with my admin duties as needed.
One Piece Community AppEdit
Did you know that approximately half of the visits across Wikia are coming from mobile devices? To support that mobile traffic, Wikia is creating iOS and Android apps that focus exclusively on individual communities. We are happy to inform you that One Piece Wiki has been selected to receive a dedicated community app. This means that you will have an app exclusively for your community that you, the admins, can curate!

Crat rights Edit
So I've been dealing with Gal's ongoing vandalism this week, and been largely successful thanks to Awaikage and his new bot account. Can I just stay a bureaucrat to give it admin rights whenever it's needed? I already talked to DP and he said he doesn't care if I keep the rights, so I guess it's up to you. Thanks. Talk | 03:01, December 13, 2014 (UTC)
Thanks! And yeah, I have no intention of using them for any more than botting/temp admining people when there's trouble. It's still on you and DP for legit user rights stuff. Talk | 20:48, December 13, 2014 (UTC)
Eleven centimeters Edit
Can I make these pages for two characters from Episode 336? Here are the Funimation sub names.   I asked Klobis and Zodiaque to check on the japanese names, but I didn't get a response. Thanks. 21:28, January 7, 2015 (UTC)
re:Heads Up Edit
That's fine. Thanks for the warning and congratulations on the job. Hopefully I'll be in your boat soon too.03:00, January 10, 2015 (UTC)
- Yeah ofc, that was the whole point of having 5 admins, and congratulations about the job:)<
Congratulations on the job! Yeah I'm okay with that and thanks for the warning. ^^ ❖ 16:35, January 11, 2015 (UTC)
Request: Remove conversation from one of your Talk page archivesEdit
Well, the reason of the request is that, the wiki I was admin of, kind of ended up being a "failed project", and in that conversation I was requesting you to affiliate with that wiki, while being totally naive, so I would prefer if that conversation wasn't there, I hope it makes sense to you XD.

Help with Merging? Edit
Hey Yata, I just realized I have no idea how to merge pages. I don't even know if it's an admin-only thing or not... Regardless, I've realized we need to merge Talk:Zombies into Talk:Zombie. Can you help me out with that? Thanks. Talk | 03:15, January 27, 2015 (UTC)
Hey can you add that gif to yami yami no mi page ?Edit
Your talk archives Edit
Hey Yata, I've noticed a problem with the archives your talk pages. Check out User talk:Yatanogarasu/Archive 3. Something's happening to push all the text to the left. I removed your tabs template on Archive 5, and that seems to have fixed it. Perhaps it deals with the floating message about signatures? I don't really know, I just though I'd let you know about the problem. Talk | 03:18, February 8, 2015 (UTC)
Purpose of Ban Forums Edit
Hey, JSD told me to ask for your (and other admins') thoughts on an important discussion regarding ban forums at Forum:Purpose of Ban Forums. Currently, it's pretty one-sided but not enough people have posted to call it a clear majority. We'd appreciate if you could comment on this. Thanks. Awaikage Talk 17:34, February 12, 2015 (UTC)
Yo Yata, I had noticed the inconsistency in the references throughout the wiki. Two versions can be found; one with the pages and text in the reference, and one with only the chapter number. Which one should we actually use? The pages and text make it more accurate, but the chapter number should be more than enough imo. What do you think? Keep the text and pages or just leave them out?
13:10, February 20, 2015 (UTC)
JSD said that Sff told him the pages section of the gref template was created only to be used with SBS, because people were really inconsistent with page numbering for chapters. What do you think?
22:52, February 21, 2015 (UTC)
What about the references used on the character histories or on arc pages, like this? The info that is referenced on the character histories is often about half the pages of the chapter , and on the arc page it is about all pages. Is it still necessary to put pages in these refs then?
23:17, February 21, 2015 (UTC)
So on the arc pages put in all the pages of the chapter in the ref? It seems to me that that is a bit unnecessary. I don't see a difference between putting in all pages or just leave them out.

Please Grace Us With Your Presence Edit
YATA! Our kids want to talk to you about something but are arguing with each other over who has to ask you to come into chat. Be the good parent and come see what they want to tell you! >:O23:48, February 21, 2015 (UTC)
Hi there, I'm reviving the good ol' dead wiki teams, and right now, we're picking leaders. To be exact, the community will nominate users to be leaders, and then you and the other admins will decide on who will be the leaders of the teams. Afterwards, I'll get started on the crews' projects, goals, how will they work, etc, which I hope you will participate in as well. Anyway, the discussion for the crews, and if you have anything to say or would like to nominate yourself or another user to be a leader of a team, the discussion is taking place here. Thanks!

Reference Guidelines Edit
Yo Yata, I had a look at our reference guidelines and thought it had to be expanded with the rules we have now. I made a fun little draft. I removed the alternative option (the original ref code) because our qref template is the referencia master race :D. Do you agree with everything written there? Is there enough information? Should some things be removed/added? I'd like to hear it from you.
12:41, February 27, 2015 (UTC)
Hey Yata its me jai here , a website called one piece forums ( http://opforum.net/ ) contacted me. They said they could help promote our wikia among its members as their official source for one piece information and help promote us around its members if we in turn somehow link their website in our wikia as a forum source ,they have around 230k members.I think it could be a good offer.what do you think about it? 21:30, February 28, 2015 (UTC)
Reference pages Edit
Hey hey, guess who it is again. Inconsistency time!!! I'm just here to show you a few statements. It'd be great if you can tell me whether you disagree or agree:
- Cover pages count towards the page number in the reference.
- Color spread counts as two pages.
- Double pages count as two actual pages. (with the left side being the higher page number)
Soooooooo what do you think? These are just random statements btw, not necessarily my opinion.
15:41, March 5, 2015 (UTC)
Excellent, I'll add the rules to the draft. Oh and don't worry about the late response. But I think that covers all rules that had to be added, so I'll put the draft in the guidelines page soon. :D
13:50, March 6, 2015 (UTC)
Here is the final draft. I also put in some subtle shameless advertising for the Reference Crew, if you don't mind ^_^". I'll put it in the actual page once it is approved.
16:01, March 7, 2015 (UTC)
Hey Yata, as you may or may not know, Roa intends to resign as admin. So I'm here to ask you and the other admins about if we should replace him, or continue on with only 4 admins. I think we should discuss this as a community, but first I just want to ask you a couple things. Do you think that in coming months you guarantee a level of activity that is equal to or greater than your current level? And do you think it will be valuable to have an odd number of admins in the future?
Anyways, if you can respond to those questions on my talk, I'll take care of starting future discussions. Thanks. Talk | 23:45, March 5, 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for the fast response. But can you also speak about your activity level? Like if you can match your current level (as in the last couple weeks, not your peak level before you got your current job) in the future. Thanks Talk | 03:26, March 6, 2015 (UTC)
And which toolbar do you mean? Can you link it/ a page that has it? Talk | 03:54, March 6, 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, I don't see it either. Not that I think it's much of a loss, as it was always laggy and rarely showed the proper image for me. If you'd like to look into getting it back, by all means go for it, but I think it's not really worth it as it probably won't exist once we get the Venus Skin. Talk | 04:50, March 6, 2015 (UTC)
I'm just always checking Special:NewFiles for image vandalism, as it's always been a more accurate and useful tool for that kind of thing, plus it's linked in the wiki header. Talk | 05:13, March 6, 2015 (UTC)
Fifth Admin Edit
I was accidentally following JustSomeDude...'s page after a message I left there, and consequently saw the details about the desire for a fifth admin. I am interested, but I understand perfectly if there is no current desire for it. Nonetheless, I would appreciate it if I could learn of what's necessary to become an admin on this site, so that I could be taken for consideration if the desire surfaces for a fifth in the future. I hope to hear back soon. The Dreamer (talk) 04:00, March 6, 2015 (UTC)
Easy enough, I daresay...though I am curious as to how I would go about proving that I would be trustworthy enough to handle such powers without being granted them, unless it's simply by showing good etiquite and form in editing and conversing otherwise. If that's the case, it should be no problem. Thank you for the answers. The Dreamer (talk) 04:17, March 6, 2015 (UTC)
Hi, Yatanogarasu. Baby 5 has betray the Donquixote Pirates when she was with Sai188.8.131.52 10:54, March 10, 2015 (UTC)
Admin Discussion Edit
Hey Yata, would it be possible for you to come onto chat or something so we can talk privately? Ideally, I'd love to get all the admins in one talk, but if the timing of that doesn't work out, we can talk separately. It's related to election, so it needs to happen sooner rather than later. Thanks. Talk | 00:03, March 19, 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, that would nice. I haven't heard from DP yet, but what would work for you? I can't do Saturday, but I could do tomorrow or Saturday. I mean, we could also have a quick chat about things tonight w/o DP too. But it's whatever you want to do, just lemme know. Talk | 02:30, March 20, 2015 (UTC)Alright, I guess we don't really need to talk together anymore. But it would be nice if you could pop into chat sometime when Calu or I are around and talk to us for a sec. Thanks. Talk | 05:12, March 22, 2015 (UTC)
