Untitled[edit]

Hi! I'm es:User:Colegota from Spanish Wikipedia and Commons. I prefer not to edit myself, but pinyin name for Yarkand is Sache. Yéchéng is for the city also called Karghilik in Uyghur. Regards, Colegota

"lengthy quotations" ![edit]

Is such a massive amount of text from so recent a book legitimate? 68.39.174.238 05:34, 10 November 2006 (UTC)

How can one article have so many templates?[edit]

Seems like too many. --Mattisse 01:38, 6 September 2007 (UTC)

History re-write[edit]

Since I am no expert of this particular section of Kashi Prefecture, I do not know exactly how the history section should be re-written. But here I will alert other editors to the issues at hand. The section is too lengthy, with the majority of it being a massive quote. This text block, even as a reference, cannot be so lengthy. It makes the article seem to have more content than it really does. ---华钢琴49 (TALK) 02:28, 19 June 2010 (UTC)

County or city[edit]

The article nearly exclusively describes the town Yarkant, only part of the side box (coordinates seem to be from the town, too) and part of the first paragraph deal with the county. I suggest to either split or move&edit. -- Tomdo08 (talk) 01:09, 18 April 2011 (UTC)
