Should this page be moved to Dorbe? The name doesn't match its romanization, and the other Barian Emperors don't exactly follow the stars they're based on to the letter. MadRest 22:25, March 17, 2013 (UTC)

So, no one's against this? I ain't gonna move the page, and then deal with other people's whines! I was contemplating on either Dorbe or Dolbe. MadRest 01:37, March 26, 2013 (UTC)
Dolbe it is. MadRest 13:21, March 30, 2013 (UTC)

Stop trying to rename it. Or accept Dolbe as an alternative spelling. The fandom's been using Durbe for over 7 months, it has far more precedent than Dolbe now. And if they Google/Bing/Yahoo for the character on the Wikia, it's going to be under Durbe. So you're essentially throwing the entire English viewerbase under a bus at this point.

You need to be faster about these name changes, and frankly you need to get off the Wiki and go to major translation boards if you want this handled better. Work with the translators in the first place, instead of constantly against them. You're going to need to "sully" yourself. -- NeoArkadia (talkcontribs) 04:08, March 31, 2013 (UTC)

It doesn't matter; it's wrong. Unless you offer some proof as to why it fits with the phonetic name, I will move it. You seriously don't expect that just because people have gotten used to it that it doesn't matter if it's wrong?! Either start defending your case with solid reasons or don't argue at all. And what are you talking about?! Just because I don't agree with something obviously wrong, then I'm suddenly against everyone?! I will give it another day, if someone wants to offer concrete reason as to why it is Durbe, and then I will move it. "People have already gotten used to 'Durbe'" is not a valid reason for it being spelled incorrectly. MadRest 12:47, March 31, 2013 (UTC)
On second thought, leave it as it is. MadRest 12:59, March 31, 2013 (UTC)
Looking it up, the reason I went with Durbe in the first place was the town of Durbe in Latvia which is translated exactly as ドルベ (Dorube). The other thing is you seem to have a tendency to go about these things frankly from the wrong way. You want people to switch over to, example, Dorbe or Dolbe? Then you're best with going to the translators outside the Wiki and effect policy elsewhere first.
As it was, you were railroading something (and noticeably didn't ask for others' opinions on the matter on other talk pages). Had you worked with other people on this, I could of gotten the subs changed over to Dolbe/Dorbe if we discussed this on more even heads. That would of reduced confusion when people go to Google/Bing/Yahoo the Wikia. Remember normal people use this site, and they aren't going to know a Dolbe, they've known Durbe.
There are far less problematic ways of handling these things, but as it is, you seem to insist on going through a corridor of swords. every. time. --NeoArkadia (talkcontribs) 13:07, March 31, 2013 (UTC)
The Talk page is for discussing the article. I don't have to go to other Talk pages. And why didn't you say that at the beginning? I found the same thing about that Latvian town. MadRest 13:23, March 31, 2013 (UTC)
