fifty DYKs!!!![edit]

Dyk50CE.svg The 50 DYK Creation and Expansion Medal
This recognition of fifty DYKs belittles the contribution that you have made to Wikipedia. All those great articles about hoards that I believe started in the year that we collaborated with the British Museum. Lots of stuff about the History of the World in 100 objects including dozens of great photographs. Its a great pleasure to recognise this achievement and to thank you on behalf of the DYK project, myself and the wiki. Thanks. Victuallers (talk) 23:24, 12 January 2015 (UTC)
Thanks! I very much appreciate your kind words. These last couple of years I have not had much time for Wikipedia, and have only managed two DYKs since the start of 2014. Hope to do better this year! BabelStone (talk) 23:59, 12 January 2015 (UTC)

Go Seigen in japanese[edit]

Hi, you rolled back my edit in article on Go Seigen. I admit I dont speak/write Japanese, but right now in the article are same characters for Go Seigen′s name in Japanese and in Chinese, which looks suspicious even to me. I took the Japanese characters from the article on de.wiki. Wesalius (talk) 09:54, 20 January 2015 (UTC)

My bad, I didnt spot the difference in first character. Wesalius (talk) 09:54, 20 January 2015 (UTC)
Hi, the characters for the name are indeed the same in Chinese and Japanese (the difference in the first character is cosmetic), but the same characters are pronounced "Wei Qingyuan" in Mandarin Chinese, but "Go Seigen" in Japanese. Hope this explanation helps. Thanks. BabelStone (talk) 10:05, 20 January 2015 (UTC)
