A few members of the ROMhacking.net community started translation work on Densetsu no Stafy for the Game Boy Advance. After it was given up with circumstances being there was no translator to pick it up, its now almost complete. The majority of the text work is thanks to Higsby, and ROM wise also Pablitox who is coordinating the project, and not forgetting Normmatt whose Japanese script dump encoded for the "Atlus" tool made editing the ROM a lot easier. (I contributed a little bit too for stage 1/2, ending, character Picture Book, and spread the project on YouTube/a Starfy forum as I'm in the Discord group, but otherwise not much, and without their work this may have not happened).
Now, we have another Nintendo game to understand in English for non-readers, such as the earlier The Frog for Whom the Bell Tolls. The text just needs to be reformatted in some cases, typos need to be fixed, and someone may want to review the text.
Liberties were taken in some of the character names, while others make us of the meaning e.g. Old Man Mechani, Lumi the Mirror (yakokagami). I acknowledge for some this could be controversial, would love your opinion.
nocturnal YL: In a way, I'm glad I'm unrelated to those fan communities of the games I play. I just sit back and play games casually, not really caring whatever scandals or elitism or holier-than-thou attitudes going on.

Shrikeswind: I think I need to track down some horribly cursed Pokemon content now after that. You know, since that was such a heavy topic to drop in the middle of a quiet forum.

Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.
