- Special:PendingChanges needs constant feeding! There was a 20 hour backlog on it earlier today alone, if you can squeeze in one review a day it will help. Happy editing, — xaosflux Talk 02:53, 27 July 2014 (UTC)
- Oh wow. Well I will check in once or twice a day and clear it out. I've read the guidelines and about bios of living persons. I am not 100% sure I'll be able to review all of them correctly, so I guess I will just leave pages for someone else if I'm not sure. Thanks again! -BloodDoll (talk) 03:36, 27 July 2014 (UTC)
Before you undid the thing (to be constructive), did you know what's the difference between an emperor and a king?
- Since your edit was to Chinese honorifics, specifically the section named Emperors and the imperial family, it seemed likely to me that it was a vandalism attempt. Generally in Chinese history emperor is the term used for a monarch, not king. If it was a good faith edit I apologize. -BloodDoll (talk) 07:06, 28 July 2014 (UTC)
- Yes generally it is. But that's what most of the foreigners (even Chinese) understand the tradition Chinese monarchs by mistake. There are kings (a lot) in Chinese history in the Pre-Qin Dynasty Period (before Emperor Shi Huangdi unified China). Even there're kings and AN emperor at the same time in the late Eastern Han (Three Kingdoms Era). The similar situation existed in the Pre-Qin Period but the king of kings did not proclaim himself as an emperor and he was called the son of heaven of Zhou (周天子) instead. Proclaiming oneself (a king, 王) to be an emperor(帝, or 皇帝 which 帝 is a suffix after 王 (king) and the 皇 has a crown 白 added on his head) was a serious event.
- Thanks for taking the time to correct my erroneous assumptions about the honorifics used. That is truly fascinating. I also was clearly too hasty in my determination that your edit was vandalism, and I apologize. Also, thanks for contributing your knowledge to the English Wikipedia! You should think about registering an account here, as edits by registered accounts are seen as less suspicious, for the most part. -BloodDoll (talk) 22:22, 28 July 2014 (UTC)
How did you get into this?
- Hi, dunno if you'll read this response, but: on a whim and out of a desire to contribute and improve, in whatever small way, the vast sum of human knowledge and accomplishment that Wikipedia catalogues and represents. I am by no means a very active or wide ranging editor, though, so you'd be better off asking someone more deeply involved in this project about their own motivations for contributing. Also take a look at this page if you're interested in becoming an active editor yourself. Thanks for stopping by! :) -BloodDoll (talk) 05:16, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
Seidenburg's nickname is Seid-a-Boom created by fellow teammate Gregory Campbell. Jack Edwards, Announcer for NESN has called him that a few times. I am changing it back on the page. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Tomp55 (talk • contribs) 05:22, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
