    Okay basically Japanese names can sound the same but mean very different things - this is the same with Chinese and Korean as well, since they share similar systems of logographical notation; that's why there is a lot of variance between names, because you can basically name someone whatever you'd like their name to mean without too much issue. This is also why I'm asking: for example, "Sakura Ieyasu" (or probably "Ieyasu Sakura") could be written as 家康 桜 - which has the specific meaning of "family peace" for "Ieyasu" and "cherry blossom / tree" - you get the idea - for "Sakura". I was wondering what you wanted the name itself to mean, as there are innumerable ways to actually write those syllables and thus a lot of opportunities for you to impart whatever you want your character's name to mean in, uh, your character's name.

    That's basically it.

    (Also what ninja wasn't Tokugawa Ieyasu a shogun : o)

    Indeed, that's where I got it from, the ninja. I don't see how that harms the naming of my character... and I have no idea what a kanji is.

    It's fine to reference Japan, but ... '_' wasn't that famous Ieyasu a first name?

    Also really I meant it in a 'come up with kanji because you probably don't want to stick with a typically female first name written in the way that it is usually' way. I can help with finding kanji!

    Unless, of course, that's what you wanted - which is fine too. I'm just, uh, asking.

    I like it the way it is. Is there any problem referencing Japan?

    You know, your sign-up is pretty good, but one thing bugs me about it ... the name of the character is very stereotypically Japanese (key word "stereotypically"). So, uh, I could help you come up with a more authentic name (with a meaning of your choice as well as accompanying kanji and such, of course) if you'd like.

    Well to be fair it was a lot worse before you standardized the font sizes (they were pretty irregular) - so most of the problem's gone, and it's just a small problem with the text color. Yeah, I read all of it already : o

    I've no clue of what you are talking about, but it still seems readable to me in the pictures you sent me. I get it can bother you, and I'd fix it if I could...

    I think your bbcode is messed up:

    It's mostly the first part. Try switching your editor mode from WYSIWIG to plaintext and fix the tags and stuff.

    Oh? It seems fine to me... I remember having the same problem with my previous SU, what exactly seems to be wrong?
