Hatoful Kareshi/Webcomic page

The problem with the name "Hatoful Kareshi" is that it's literally the name of Hatoful Boyfriend in Japanese. I think it would be better to differentiate between the game and the webcomic, seeing as the title of the webcomic and game are the same.

We can just add the "webcomic" label after the name to differentiate then. That's how a lot of other wikis treat products that share the same name. People searching for the information are more likely to type in "Hatoful Kareshi" in the search bar than "webcomic."

With that in mind, does that mean we should have the wiki follow the Japanese standards like lastname-firstname as well as the Japanese date notation of year-month-day? I can help standardize the wiki to follow that.

Good idea. We'll have to go through all of the month templates and change the order of the month and day in the code so it links to the right place.

I thought of just using one month template back when I created them, but then I realized that the vast majority of the days throughout the year have nothing happening, so they would just be a waste of space on the wiki. Problem was, not all months had events on the same days, so I had to go through and individually make each template. It... well, let's just say it took a while to figure out how to make it work (but I learned a lot from it, so it was worth it!). So that's why there are so many separate month templates, if you're wondering.

As for the familyname-givenname... I'm still not completely sure. This is an Western wiki in English, and we have the names in Japanese next to them with the familyname-givenname format... I just don't know.

Both the original Japanese release and the official English release of the games has the characters presented by lastname-firstname. I don't think it would be worth it to retain the westernized naming standard when neither version of the game follows it.
