Merger[edit]

Shouldn't we merge this article with Yin, since they are the same thing. "Yinxu" literally means the ruins of Yin, which is what the city of Yin (capital of late Shang Dynasty) is in its present-day. "Yinxu" is only the more archaeological sounding name of the two. --67.2.149.131 19:22, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

Have done so, as I think your point is valid. Yin doesn't REALLY exist as a point on the map anymore. I've also added some info about it to make the article more helpful. Liashi 23:39, 27 August 2006 (UTC)

Wikifcation and Cleanup[edit]

the notes and references need to be separated and wikified--Gurdjieff (talk) 03:45, 6 March 2009 (UTC)

Don't Delete the captials list without a good reason[edit]

I don't know or care who deleted the list of capitals I added a few months ago, but don't do it again without providing a reason in this post. I spent a long time to find and verify this information. This information is important please do not delete it. --Gurdjieff (talk) 06:23, 13 June 2009 (UTC)

Perhaps this information would be better presented in a tabular format as it is a little unclear as it stands. At the very least hanzi should also be given for each capital for cross referencing.
