Mirrormoon mentioned in issue 65 of the magazine "games

Unread post by Kura » February 23rd, 2008, 6:04 pm

Hey guys, just thought you'd be interested in knowing that you were mentioned on an article about Doujin-Soft on page 159.

"Creating visual novels for practically no money is tough enough, but Mirror Moon has awarded itself the ominous task of making those fundamental doujin-soft games accessible to the English-speaking gamer."

Included an image of FSN's tiger dojo.

Well, the least they could've done was to get the name right =/.

Indeed. Someone assream them for trying to perpetuate the incorrect capitalization. Whoever they are. The name didn't fit in the topic.

Edit: actually, Kura didn't spell it right either. Come on people, how difficult can a name be? >__>

Haha, you didn't see that? I personally think the error's going to stay for life.

At least people are more aware of this 'Mirror Moon' group now =).

Edit: Just in case of any misinterpretation, I meant the error everyone will make, not just Kura

Are you talking about how he capitalised, or that it became one word? If it's the capitalisation, it may not be Kura's fault as many boards are set to automatically change the first letter of a thread title to a capital. If it's the whole mirrormoon rather than mirror moon, then yes, he definitely got it wrong. :P

There there. Let ol Marus/Marrus/Marcus cheer you up.

Still, that's pretty cool a fan group would get mentioned in a magazine. Yay for PR.

er, sempai, if you are referring to the correct spelling, it should be "mirror moon" ^^
look at the very top of this page for more details ^^

mirror moon.. Im SURE there's no CAPITAL Ms in them...

@Message.. Maybe its Kura that's typoed mm? The article could may well typed mm as... 'mirror moon' correctly.

Anyways.. Congrats to the mm staffers! imaginary beers on me... XD

What's the big deal about typoing/miscapitalizing a word? I don't get it, if I typ in mirrormoon on google, I get the same result. Same is with Mirror Moon.

Anyway, back to topic. It's pretty nice m-m being mentioned in a magazine. Kudos :)

The problem is that it's not right. It's like writing someone's name without capitalizing, or mixing words together (likethis). Can hurt a company/organization/group a lot.

maybe it's their way of saying something along the line of "we're the 'back/reflection/other side of coin' of TYPE-MOON" since TYPE-MOON is spelled with capitals only, they made the spelling of mirrormoon......umm, in-capitals only :? . Dunno, just my hunch, ok. Not trying to assume familiarity or anything, just my theory, ok?

Well, Message always trying to make a point of the name, so at least i take that it's quite important to the staff.... just go with it :wink: .

Anyway, what magazine mirror moon was mentioned?? anybody can upload some image or link to website that has one....??


@Raitei & inferno-flamex: It's so close to each other... the space is barely visible..... :oops: :oops: :oops: (making reasons :roll: )

I think its very similar to pronouncing someone's name. Even if the letters are the same, if its pronounced in a different way, it's not your name. A similar situation would be the two names Steven and Stephen. Aside from the fact that there is another way to pronounce the second one, they can be pronounced the same, but are different. It does feel a bit weird when you're trying to start a sentence with their name though... mirror moon.
