Might we use something else to represent the extended vowels? I have a problem with repeating them in romaji because it may cause confusion for those who don't know how to properly pronounce the Japanese vowels. For example, Gorman's name in Japanese is "ゴーマン" (pronounced Gōman) on the page is written as "GOOMAN." For those who don't know that it pronounces a long "oh" sound may interpret it as an "oo" sound; in other words, they might assume the name would indicate that he has something to do with slime. (On a personal note, I think the letters with macrons over them look less redundant.) - TonyT S C 21:08, 3 April 2010 (UTC)

Of course! Feel free to make the necessary changes. You don't need to ask for permission for this kind of stuff. If you feel something can be improved, then don't be afraid to change it! :) Dany36 21:14, 3 April 2010 (UTC)
Alright, thanks. I'll get to work on changing it. - TonyT S C 21:34, 3 April 2010 (UTC)
