The Forgotten Beast (Talk) asked me to leave you a message

Hi Star Light (Talk). The Forgotten Beast asked me to inform you that he won't be active on NIWA or Skype until an unknown date due to his computers having not worked for weeks. Please let me know if you receive this message. Thanks. --Torchickens 08:31, 22 May 2012 (CDT)

I got it. Thanks for letting me know! I wondered why I haven't seen him lately, but I just assumed it was because he was busy elsewhere. Star Light 17:53, 23 May 2012 (CDT)
Glad you got the message.
We've almost got articles for all the minigames done but I was having trouble with the name of a certain minigame in Densetsu no Starfy 2 (おとしちゃダメダメ, Otoshicha Dame Dame?) I wasn't really sure what to make of it, other than 'dame dame' meaning something like 'bad bad'. I was wondering if you had any ideas on how to fully translate it?
Also, I recently noticed something really cool. You know how TheDWJProductions started a translation of Densetsu no Starfy on Youtube? Somebody started doing an actual translation of Densetsu no Starfy. Kagegamer12 and I were interested in helping, so we sent the original poster a private message into how far the project has progressed, and if we could help with it, since we both have some experience in ROM hacking.
If they accept, would you be interested in teaming up to try a translation of Densetsu no Starfy as a community project? We thought the main story text would take a while, though it wouldn't be too bad because Densetsu no Starfy isn't that long of a game, and we already have all the character/enemy and music names. --Torchickens 09:57, 25 May 2012 (CDT)
I actually didn't know anyone was translating the game! I'm more out-of-date than I thought.--; As for the project... I'd love to help, but I feel like I'd be taking on a bigger task than I can truly handle. I made that mistake somewhere else half-a-year ago. Even if I could translate the story, I feel like it would take a lot more time and effort than it would if I improved my Japanese first. As for the minigame, that's a good question. I might have a better idea if you tell me what otoshicha means since none of my sources have it for some reason.>_> Star Light 05:32, 28 May 2012 (CDT)
All right then. I'll wait and see what the translator Blackmage907 says. I'm usually a 'list person' who likes to put things into context after the main content is written. I now have a lot of free time, so feel more confident to invest time into something like this. I wouldn't feel confident in trying to translate an RPG, but I thought that ideally a preliminary translation of Densetsu no Starfy could be made to include what we already have and know, including enemy names, character names, stage names, and DWJ's text for Stage 1 and maybe built on through time.
Anyway, I think I may have figured something out! There is a word 落とし otoshi that means 'dropped'. After some research, ちゃ cha can be used as a casual abbreviation for things you can't do. The minigame is called おとしちゃダメダメ. How would you word this? I was thinking something like "Don't drop no good no good"? --Torchickens 17:54, 29 May 2012 (CDT)
Don't Drop No Good No Good sounds fine to me! Sorry I answered so late. Star Light 21:58, 4 June 2012 (CDT)
No worries. "Don't Drop No Good No Good" it is then! --Torchickens 06:09, 6 June 2012 (CDT)

Densetsu no Starfy manga

Hey Star Light (Talk), how are you? Some time ago I scanned in the cover sheets for chapters in the Densetsu no Starfy manga by Yumiko Sudō. I'm not sure if you've seen them. Some time ago I think you said you wanted to work on articles about the manga?

I hope these come in handy.

--Torchickens 15:56, 19 September 2012 (CDT)

Sorry for the late reply! I've been gone longer than I thought... Although I already have both these volumes, having them here may actually make it a little easier for me to traslate them! Sadly, because the main computer I use recently broke I may not be able to do much, if anything, for awhile. Thanks a lot for the scans though!
By the way, did you see my message on DA? I can't post my picture here for the same reason I haven't been able to do any editing. Star Light (talk) 18:30, 2 October 2012 (CDT)
Are you getting any error messages? Tappy 19:14, 2 October 2012 (CDT)
Glad that you find them useful! I hope you're enjoying your Japanese lessons. I started taking evening classes in Japanese last week. We learned some of the basics and our sensei Akiko is really friendly.
I'm sorry to hear about your computer. That must suck :/ Hope you get it fixed.
@Tappy: When I try to upload something I get an error like "Internal error Set $wgShowExceptionDetails = true; at the bottom of LocalSettings.php to show detailed debugging information." or this Could not create directory "mwstore://local-backend/local-public/a/a1". --Torchickens (talk) 07:24, 3 October 2012 (CDT)

Area Select name in Densetsu no Starfy 2

Hi Star Light (Talk)! I was wondering if you could help with something. In Densetsu no Starfy 3, the game manual calls the Map the Area Select. I don't know whether it has the same name in Densetsu no Starfy 2, and the Nintendo Official Guidebook doesn't seem to say. I don't have the manual for Densetsu no Starfy 2 and only the game. Do you have the manual? If so, could you check for a name for the Area Select to see if it is the same? I have a feeling it might not be because it is a map. Thanks.

By the way, thanks again for adding the lyrics to Boku wa Starfy and Saya Kazuki's version of the Title Song! I thanked you in an edit summary but I'm not sure if you saw it. --Torchickens (talk) 16:10, 22 September 2013 (UTC)

Can I also have your opinion on what should be the next featured article? I've left my opinion on Starfy Wiki talk:Community portal.--Torchickens (talk) 20:30, 22 September 2013 (UTC)
Never mind, Wotsaruto is now featured. Torchickens (talk) 11:52, 24 September 2013 (UTC)
I do have it, in fact! It appears to have the same name as Densetsu no Starfy's manual. Which if I remember right was simply "Select." You're welcome! I did see it, in fact! Thanks for fixing my extremely minor error. Don't know how I missed that! Ha ha ha! Since there was no Furigana, I may have to add the Romanji lyrics by ear sometime. Sorry I wasn't here to suggest a feartured article. I'm glad you were able to take care of it without me. Star Light (talk) 16:35, 25 September 2013 (UTC)
Thanks Star Light (Talk)! Is that for the Area Select (levels within stages) and not the Stage Select? I'm quite confused as Densetsu no Starfy doesn't have one. You're welcome. I like to proofread. Good luck on adding the Romaji if you do. It's OK. I actually felt a bit bad deciding to feature Wotsaruto early because I could have waited for your opinion and Kyle ((Starphoria (Talk))'s, who is online on Skype frequently as well. --Torchickens (talk) 19:28, 25 September 2013 (UTC)
Sorry for the late reply!--; I was looking at the wrong thing before, my bad! So the Starfy 2 manual calls it Map. So it is not the same after all! Don't worry about the featured article! I don't think I'd have much of an opinion anyway. Star Light (talk) 23:06, 2 October 2013 (UTC)
No worries about the late reply. All right, I've now mentioned it in the article. Thanks Star Light (Talk) :). You sure? Your opinion is as good as mine as I'm sure you've gone through viewing a lot of articles on the Wiki. Torchickens (talk) 16:01, 3 October 2013 (UTC)
I insist it's no big deal! I truly wouldn't be able to decide what to suggest and I could always do it next time. Star Light (talk) 21:55, 4 October 2013 (UTC)
It's OK. I don't feel bad about it anymore. Besides, it's finished now, it's just a featured article, and nobody had any problems with the result. As you say you could always vote next time. Torchickens (talk) 13:09, 5 October 2013 (UTC)

Re:I really owe you apologies!

Hi Star Light, I wondered where you were. I added the missing articles without any synopsis to make it easier to add them later and I was about to add them because you weren't active but that's fine then, I'll wait for you to add them in the weekend. Thanks.

If something happens and you can't add them or you otherwise decide you don't want to, I'll go ahead and do it because it's been a while now. --Torchickens (talk) 17:08, 27 November 2013 (UTC)

Thank you very much! I don't deserve this chance.-_-; That's why I'm giving myself a deadline. If there are still missing chapters on Monday, they're all yours... Star Light (talk) 18:40, 27 November 2013 (UTC)
All right. Please don't feel bad on yourself. It's your choice whether you decide to add them or not. --Torchickens (talk) 14:10, 28 November 2013 (UTC)

Starfy forums invitation

Hi Star Light. Long time no speak. I hope you are well! I'm unsure where else to contact you, but I was wondering if you would like to join my friend's new dedicated forum about The Legendary Starfy? There isn't really a dedicated active Starfy forum, so it would be great to get one going and we have a few users already. Would really appreciate it. :) Thanks! The forum can be found here. Torchickens (talk) 20:59, 24 September 2015 (UTC)

Hello, Torchickens! Sorry for the very late reply! It's been a busy year for me. Thanks for telling me about the forum! I'll check it out. I don't know how often I'll post though as I'm becoming a lot more shy with age. That's partially why I left Deviant Art and a few other places I was on. I also want to think of a new username. I've been using Star Light, and its Japanese counterpart Hoshi Hikari, for 10 years and I don't think it fits me anymore. I'm not sure if it would be easy or even possible to change it here, but it doesn't matter until I think of one. In any case, thanks for staying in touch! It means a lot to me! Star Light (talk) 14:07, 16 October 2015 (UTC)
Hi Star Light. Don't worry, that's OK! I have not really been active recently either. I am trying to gain weight and have been getting closer to my goal. No problem. I hope you enjoy it. Don't worry, there's nothing wrong with that, I am often the same, and one should post at their own pace.
I see. I hope you are able to think of a new username soon. I personally still like the username "Star Light" even if you don't change it. It should be possible to essentially change your username if you create a new account and I add your edits to it via Special:UserMerge. No problem friend. :) Sorry for my late reply. Torchickens (talk) 18:17, 31 October 2015 (UTC)


Star Light, I feel a little shy because it's been so long but umm.. are you still around? :( Unsure if you still browse here. Suddenly thought about you. I miss you and Beast, Kagegamer12. Also another friend called Parrothead, whose had it rough. I worry in my shadow if I sound intense in anyway now. Best wishes. Torchickens (talk) 12:42, 12 December 2019 (UTC)

Good to see you again, Torchickens! I'm glad you spoke to me because the Starfy Wiki has been on my mind recently. As you probably guessed, I'm not really active here anymore. The last time we spoke, I mentioned that I left a lot of websites. At that time, I considered leaving the Starfy Wiki as well. The main reason I didn't was because I felt like I really had a place here compared to every other site I was on at the time. There was more to why I left than what I initially said, but I wasn't really ready to talk about it at the time. 2015 and 2016 was really rough for my family. I won't go into detail of why, but I will say that it really took a mental toll on me. Around the same time, I was running into the more toxic people of the internet more often. Eventually, I decided I couldn't take it anymore and nearly cut out my entire internet life. The good news is that taking somewhat of a break from the internet helped! In the past few years, I've also gotten a better idea of what I want to do with my life and what I thought I wanted to do. The Starfy series still has a place in my heart. The problem is so do many other series. When I currently feel passionate about one series, it's hard to focus on the other ones I like. This is another reason I became inactive. Now that I've had some experience working on a Wiki, I've seen that it's not what I'm meant to do long term and that's okay. I still haven't decided what exactly this means for my place here, but I feel like you gave me a good excuse to get this off my chest. So thanks for that and sorry for rambling! Star Light (talk) 02:34, 13 December 2019 (UTC)
You too Star Light :) Gosh, sorry to hear about the stress. :/ Yes, the Internet can be a mixed bag of positive and negative influences. That's understandable, I'm glad it helped! Happy to hear ^^, that's OK; part of my past has moved on too. That's OK! you didn't come across rambling at all. Torchickens (talk) 17:30, 16 December 2019 (UTC)
Sorry for the late reply! In addition to being busy, I couldn't decide what I wanted to say. There's a lot on my mind that I haven't said, but couldn't decide how much of it I should say. I at least wanted to let you know that I miss you too. I don't feel like I really expressed that before. Star Light (talk) 20:34, 24 December 2019 (UTC)


Hi ^^ (I don't know if you still lurk here), you OK? Torchickens (talk) 13:48, 14 September 2021 (UTC)

Hello! Sorry for the late reply. I don't really visit here anymore, but I do have it set to where I get an email when someone edits my talk page just in case I get an important message regarding my account or the wiki itself. To tell you the truth, it's a little hard for me to really come back here. I feel guilty for not at least making sure there are no vandals, but it's been so long that I have forgotten a lot about how the wiki works. I know there's nothing wrong with having to relearn things, but I'm still embarrassed by it. If I thought I would start editing regularly again, I wouldn't worry about it. But I don't think I will for several reasons. In spite of that, it means a lot to me when you check on me. So thank you! It is nice to talk to you again!
