What is the source for 斉藤那緒? If you are adding romanizations for artists without an artist page, you need to provide sources in the edit comment.

It's the same person. They also designed Sangatsu no Phantasia's last album, being credited as (Sony Music Communications) back then: https://media.vgm.io/albums/29/83392...1555426604.jpg

They were added to the BALCOLONY website between Feb 2020 and Jan 2021: https://web.archive.org/web/20200102...ony.com/about/

That is consistent with them leaving Sony Music Solutions ~mid-2020.

Maybe you missed my post again? You still need to fix the links for Nao Saito.

Before linking them, the display kanji should be decided between 斉藤 (BALCOLONY. website) and 齊藤 (booklets). If you are convinced with one of the two, you just link them and fix her page.

The display should be 齊藤 as that's the way her name is printed on albums.
>you just link them
It's your mistake. Fix it yourself.

Hey, what do you think about her display name kanji as the page maker? I think 斉藤 should go to the display if it is correct her name.
@nstz
Since her company info is more trustworthy to decide it, I think 斉藤 should be dispaly and 齊藤 be a variation.

We don't know that 斉藤 is her correct name. Currently we have 4 albums where her name is printed as 齊藤 and 1 album where her name is printed as 斉藤. I wouldn't take the name on the company website as decisive, it wouldn't be the first time a company website has had someone's name wrong when similar kanji like 斉/齊, 高/髙 etc. are involved.

The best source would be her social media, to see how she spells it herself. But since we don't have that, based on the current evidence I would go with 齊藤 as the main name.

Anyway, I'm not even asking you to update her artist entry. All I want you to do is link Nao Saito's credit on this album to her artist page. I don't know why you are being so difficult over this.

If we can get the name sources only from the booklets and the company website, picking the latter would be more persuasive since info from artist companies have been much more correct from my experience.

Personally, I would just use the current name on the company website. Clients also address her as 斉藤: https://twitter.com/NUUDE_comics/sta...50685286617090

She has a Twitter too but doesn't write her name in Japanese: https://twitter.com/70_7o_n

This design magazine also refers to her as 斉藤: https://www.mdn.co.jp/design/DESIGNDIGEST/213/

Pretty weird that 4/5 booklets are incorrect, but I guess that must be the case.

Nao Saito's credits still aren't linked to her entry.

@whatkind

I don't understand your point.

You submitted some credits to this entry.
You overlooked Nao Saito's existing artist entry, and failed to link her credit to her page.
Your mistake has been pointed out to you, and now you're expected to fix it.

Perhaps if you want to behave like a regular editor where staff goes around fixing all your submissions instead, you don't need that Trusted next to your name.

What's the matter with you? I also don't understand why you are so serious, angry and fussy.
Do not press members so hard. They and I have made efforts in our own way volunteering for free sparing valuable time though making mistakes.
If you'd like to take out my trusted title and check my stuff over chasing after me, just do it.
