Talk:Pandeism#Chinese materials. -- Chinese-speaking assistance needed!!

I am sorry to bother you but do you know how hard it is to find a Chinese-speaking Wikipedian who is around on a regular basis? There ought to be some tool to go through the category and only see the ones who have edited within some recent period. But all that is beside the point.

As detailed in the talk page section I added material to Pandeism from authors who have written of it in Chinese-language secondary sources. I added direct quotes from these authors, translated by the assistance of Chinese-speaking friends (who are, sadly, not Wikipedians). I provided complete citations (I made a few minor errors, but none that would affect verifiability of the sources). And some editor with a questionable username comes along and tosses it out with nothing more than a 'Chinese stuff, OR.' Can you please verify that the material provided actually reflects the quotes from the respective sources? Blessings!! DeistCosmos (talk) 18:59, 5 September 2013 (UTC)

About Girls und Panzer

To be clear under my logic, this series define tank warfare as a form of martial arts discipline. If you've seen the series, Miho Nishizumi comes from the Nishizumi Clan, known for their style of tank warfare for several generations; it's a well-known method called Nishizumi Style. Whenever Miho simply mentions her name, the prestige of that name carries weight. Just like martial arts, there's Yang Style Tai Chi as well as Chen Style. I double-checked the anime and they used Nishizumi-dou, as in Nishizumi method (aka style) and doesn't use the term family; it's a common term that martial artists that inherit a combat style would use their last name as both identity and classifying their method of combat. As for the spelling, it was a typo on my part. As for the ending, everyone wants closure to a story. What's the point of not giving the person the ending? Every major movie wiki page gives the ending to the story; I would like to hear your reasoning not to include it.

Kamikaze museum

Have you read the references? They are saying the exact opposite of what the quote I deleted said. The quote is either completely made up or has its meaning inverted through omission:

'Mr Hamazono, though, bristled at the suggestion that he and his fellow Tokkotai pilots were the forerunners of modern-day suicide bombers.

"We were completely different," he said. "We did what we did for our comrades ... the terrorists kill themselves for purely selfish reasons. I don't get angry when I hear them described as the modern-day kamikaze, but it troubles me that religion, not love, inspired them to do these things.'

'Missions "totally different"

Japan's originals are insulted to be mentioned in the same breath.

"When I hear the comparison, I feel so sorry for my friends who died, because our mission was totally different from suicide bombers," Hamazono says as he strolls through the Peace Museum for Kamikaze Pilots in Chiran, a former air base on the southern Japanese island of Kyushu.

The kamikazes attacked military targets. In contrast, "the main purpose of a suicide bomber is to kill as many innocent civilians as they can," Hamazono says. That, he says, "is just murder."

The same distinction is made by other survivors of the Tokkotai, or Special Attack Force, conventionally known as the kamikaze. Its survivors tick off the reasons why their goal-line stand against an American invasion was different from the blind lashing-out of suicide bombers today:

• We were ready to die out of love for our country, they say. Suicide bombers are driven by hatred and revenge.'

Revert of IP Edit

I did it per this sockpuppet investigation [1]. NativeForeigner Talk 17:04, 1 October 2013 (UTC)

Alright then. I had no idea he was a confirmed sock. I was initially confused why he was reverted, when it seemed from first glance that nothing was wrong. --benlisquareTCE 17:08, 1 October 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, I haven't used the rollback all script in a while, and I thought you could leave an edit summary. It turns out that is only on the twinkle variant. It's good you caught that, under most circumstances I would have been in the wrong. NativeForeigner Talk 17:14, 1 October 2013 (UTC)

Have some consideration?

Yes, Vietnam is a country in South-East Asia, but does that exclude it from any relations with East Asia? Of course not. One particular topic I would like to address you with is that Vietnam does, and still holds strongly to it, shares a Confucian philosophical world view with China, Korea and Japan. From what I've seen, myself, Vietnam probably preserves it better than Japan, or even China itself, especially people living in urban, or modern, areas as opposed to the more traditional rural Chinese. This additional information, although minor, is nothing but the truth and from what I see you didn't seem to take much, or any at all, of these things into consideration. Nonetheless, geographic views will never, I repeat never, stand in the way of cultural and historic information. One last thing I would like to say, is that, although it may not apply to you, being in any way biased or removing or re-writing information in favor of one's self is something that I utterly hate. Keep things neutral. Don't exclude but include. --TheNano7474 (talk) 11:13, 7 October 2013 (UTC)

Most trafficked Hong Kong-related articles

Ben,

What are the most trafficked HK-related articles that don't yet have ZH-YUE? I ask because if there are ZH-YUE stubs of them, it will make ZH-YUE more visible and there will be more pressure on it to be correct.

Thanks, WhisperToMe (talk) 16:25, 10 October 2013 (UTC)

I'm not sure. I personally don't know, and I don't quite know where to go looking for this information either. I don't quite pay attention to HK-related topics that much, sorry. --benlisquareTCE 16:36, 10 October 2013 (UTC)
Ok. I raised concern about the Republic of Cantonia article with some ZH-YUE Wiki admins, pointing to the English AFD. WhisperToMe (talk) 16:40, 10 October 2013 (UTC)

A lesson on the Internet

It's called a dynamic IP address. http://pcsupport.about.com/od/termsd/g/dynamic-ip-address.htm 69.171.187.30 (talk) 19:55, 19 October 2013 (UTC)

No shit, but is there a need for you to be resetting your router once every 5 minutes? --benlisquareTCE 19:57, 19 October 2013 (UTC)
You have much to learn. 69.171.187.90 (talk) 22:07, 19 October 2013 (UTC)
No, not really. There is no practical reason for an ISP to force you to change IPs once every few seconds. This might have been the case with a cellular provider, but your ISP doesn't seem to be one. Come on, take a serious look at your edits: barely a two minute span between each edit, and you're already on a different IP. The only believable reason why this is the case is that you're being intentionally disruptive, by trying to make it more difficult to link your posts together. Either you're manually reconnecting each time, or worse, you're using an anonymous VPN service that regularly switches nodes every few minutes. --benlisquareTCE 05:02, 20 October 2013 (UTC)

調

To me, it sounds like the opening riff of that song goes $A \flat G \flat D \flat A \flat B \flat$ (I'm not sure whether it's because of the fuzzy quality of the recording though), so I would say that it is in G flat major. --benlisquareTCE 07:04, 3 November 2013 (UTC)
Maybe between F major and G-flat major ? 198.105.121.83 (talk) 12:44, 3 November 2013 (UTC)
I'll probably stick with G flat major. Though sometimes it sounds like there's some strange sounding tone shift that's probably due to the video source coming from a VHS casette tape or something (over time, high pitched sounds go off-tone due to VHS tape wear and tear), it doesn't sound low enough to be F major. --benlisquareTCE 13:28, 3 November 2013 (UTC)

『鎮守府生活のすすめ』のときは、「やらおん」という信頼できない情報源を参考にして誤った記述を行なっていました。先ほど直した部分も田中プロデューサーとは記事中に全く書かれていないのに「田中プロデューサーが言った」と書いてありました（実際は安田社長）。リンク先の中国語サイトがどういったサイトなのか分かりませんが、公式な翻訳ニュースサイトであればあるはずの大元の日本語記事（ダイヤモンド・オンライン）へのリンクも無いようで、信頼できる情報源と言えるのかどうか私は疑いを持っています。

ひとつお聞きしたいのですが宜しいでしょうか。あなたが記事を書く際、当然、ソース（出典）を付けますが、そのソースはどのように発見しているのですか？ 中国語コミュニティの「艦これまとめサイト」のような場所があるのですか？ http://news.hankooki.com/lpage/opinion/201311/h2013110321115924420.htm など、日本ではほとんど話題にもなっていないニュースを持ってくるなど、私はあなたのソース発見手段に興味があります。--Starchild1884 (talk) 23:31, 4 November 2013 (UTC)

Standard Chinese

a. What a great talk page. So cow. I'm jealous.

b. I pushed mention of "MSM" back down out of the lead per WP:UNDUE. Before you restore it, kindly address the concerns on the talk page. It's obviously just not common at all and I don't see the reason to duplicate "Mandarin" with a bunch of qualifiers in the lead sentence.

The page should include it. Can we be cool with it just showing up further down the page as a classification employed by particular linguists to distinguish this "Mandarin" from others which they (but no one else) sometimes need to talk about?

c. The page has much bigger problems than where MSM . The conversation got off topic (and long), but when you have a minute, check out the talk page at Mandarin Chinese and Standard Chinese and add your thoughts at least on the suggested action parts of the original posts. — LlywelynII 04:55, 7 November 2013 (UTC)

Also, (since I'm looking around) thanks for your work on the Nine familial exterminations and 10 Mythical Creatures of Baidu. Loved those. :)  — LlywelynII 05:01, 7 November 2013 (UTC)
Regarding MSM: It's alright, you've convinced me. I'm fine with the first mentioning of that term being pushed down, since it's not as common used compared to the other terms. I did originally believe that it should have at least had a mention somewhere within the article, so right now I think this compromise is perfectly acceptable. As for the other issues, I'll take a look at them in a moment. --benlisquareTCE 05:40, 7 November 2013 (UTC)

Transcription into Chinese characters#Regional differences

I don't know if you're interested at all, but (a) my poking around the Chinese wikipedias and Wiktionary could use some double checking and (b) it's a good section, but needs sourcing and more material from Singapore and Malaysia if you know where to find either. — LlywelynII 05:07, 7 November 2013 (UTC)

About some no reference change

Sorry to disturb. Someone always change the article related with Japanese invasions of Korea (1592–98) and Sino-Japanese war without any reference. He changes or just deletes the Japanese casualties data. Even just change the result part from Japanese victory to Decisive Japanese victory. I don't know the difference and also no explanation for these change. Most of time just tag mobile edit without explain. I cannot determine whether these changes are correct and just revert to previous version. Can you find some reliable sources about these and add the data from these sources to these articles? These includes Japanese invasions of Korea (1592–98), Siege of Suncheon ,Battle of West Hubei and Battle of Dadaejin Thank you — Preceding unsigned comment added by Miracle dream (talkcontribs) 01:04, 11 November 2013‎

Can you find some sources about Japanese casualties about in Japanese invasions of Korea (1592–98). Someone requires the reliable sources for this. I try to check the book "The Cambridge History of China" but didn't get the data. I don't have book "The Cambridge History of Japan". — Preceding unsigned comment added by Miracle dream (talkcontribs) 03:56, 22 November 2013 (UTC)

Cantonese question

What do you think of zh-yue:User_talk:William915#嘢玩? What is the solution? WhisperToMe (talk) 19:00, 12 November 2013 (UTC)

Not too sure. On the one hand, there's the claim that one term is used in HK Cantonese, whilst on the other hand, there's the argument that the other term is more often seen in Cantonese in general, and that the other term is a neologism. I wouldn't have much of a useful opinion in the matter anyway, I think it's best to leave it to the local community over there. --benlisquareTCE 01:19, 13 November 2013 (UTC)

Kantai Collection

Hey there, just took a look at Kantai Collection. After careful consideration, I have decided to leave it as a C-class. Here are my comments:

• The vast majority of the references are written in something other than English. This is going to make it difficult to get through GAN/FAC. Are there no reliable English secondary sources?
• There is a lot of detail in the article, especially in the publications and voice actor sections. Is all of the information necessary for the average reader to get a good idea of the subject?
• The gameplay section is pretty good, but does not actually explain what kind of device the game is played on. Is it played in web browsers, or is it a PC title?
• In Reception can you put a section with comments from reliable reviewers?
• There is no Development section. I did notice some development-related comments in Reception (about the game's financial performance).
• Perhaps you could start a Merchandise section or something similar, and put the merchandise-related info from Reception in there, and also clean up the list of publications or turn it into prose.

Keep up the good work! — Mr. V (tc) 03:24, 14 November 2013 (UTC)

Bitcoin reversion

To me (and some random person on the internet who brought it up on the Bitcoin talk page), the sentence 'The concept was introduced in a 2008 paper by a pseudonymous developer known as "Satoshi Nakamoto".' screams for either a citation or a link to the paper itself. I suppose you disagree because you reverted my edit. Instead of just removing the link like that, could you please instead suggest an alternate means of citing or providing a link to the paper? Chris Arnesen 02:43, 20 November 2013 (UTC)

I've just made another change to the page. What you do think of this? --benlisquareTCE 03:03, 20 November 2013 (UTC)
Better, thanks! I spent some time looking into whether the paper was published in a peer-reviewed journal or something like that. As far as I can tell, it wasn't. It was first "announced" to the world via a cryptography mailing list at metzdowd.com. I put together a reference to the archive of the mailing list to establish chronology. What do you think of this? [1] Chris Arnesen 03:16, 20 November 2013 (UTC)
It might be a good idea to get various opinions on the Bitcoin article talk page. The thing is, Wikipedia is sometimes a bit allergic to primary sources, and using primary sources in general is a bit of an iffy issue. Have an ask around, and see what others think. See WP:PRIMARY for the details regarding usage of primary sources on Wikipedia. --benlisquareTCE 03:21, 20 November 2013 (UTC)
Interesting. I didn't realize that the preference was for secondary sources. Makes sense I guess. I'm a longtime Wikipedia reader, and am only now dipping my toes into the world of editing. I'll take the discussion to the Bitcoin talk page. Thanks for the info. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Chrisarnesen (talkcontribs) 03:26, 20 November 2013 (UTC)
