Qin[edit]

Thank you for the background on your qin playing and good luck with your manga. Are you in Beijing? I will visit there for the first time in October, for a conference at the Central Conservatory on the connections between African and Asian musics. I'd like to see some traditional music while I am there, and maybe some Chinese rock. I'm a big fan of Cui Jian, as well as some of the more recent rock bands. I'm also recommended to check out the "Five Flavors Book Store" in Beijing. Any ideas you could give me would be great, as I've never been to China before. I live near Cleveland, Ohio, USA, where I have studied Chinese music since 1990 (I play sheng, houguan, xun, suona, yehu, sanxian, etc.). Badagnani 11:59, 26 August 2005 (UTC)

Seals[edit]

Thank you for your additions to Seal (Chinese)!

Go equipment article[edit]

Hi there. I know you're working on that Go equipment article and you may have seen a few contributions I did for it. I'm curious what more you want to do with it. Do you want to get into really specific areas? One that came to mind are the Ing stones and bowls, though I'm sure there are others one could get into. Let me know. Perhaps I could help. --Sivak 22:19, 14 November 2005 (UTC)

Photo[edit]

Very nice photo. Badagnani 14:47, 21 December 2005 (UTC)

Jianpu and Gongchi pu[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. Thank you for the additional information on jianpu. See if you can also help to expand the article gongchi notation. -- Felix Wan 03:16, 28 January 2006 (UTC)

Guqin recordings[edit]

Do you have any copyleft/public domain recordings that could be used in the Guqin article? (I could help walk you through the process of making them, if you want) Raul654 11:07, 26 February 2006 (UTC)

Goose-tail?[edit]

Dear CharlieHuang, Why did you change "tail" to "goose-tail" in the description of clerical script on the E. Asian calligraphy page? Is this a common English description? If so, can you provide a reference? Or is it your translation from Chinese, in which case could you please provide the characters for goose tail? Providing explanations of and references for changes you make is better than just changing things without explaining it. Thanks in advance for your clarification. Cheers!Dragonbones 03:04, 27 March 2006 (UTC)

Calligrapher Qu Leilei called it a 'goose-tail' stroke when I had a calligraphy workshop with him on the 18th March at the Royal Academy of Arts in London at the Three Emperors exhibition. He also called the beginning backward stroke 'silken-hands' or something which I can't remember so I didn't put that in there. That's why I put it there; because he called it that so it must be a correct term for the stroke. --Charlie Huang 【正矗昊】 17:36, 27 March 2006 (UTC) "
Thanks for your response! I have been tracking the answer down in the meantime, and discovered the expression "silkworm head and wild goose tail" in Chinese. Very interesting! But since it's not a standard English expression, rather than introducing it as and English 'term', I've rewritten it as follows: "Most noticeable is the dramatically flared tail of one dominant horizontal or downward-diagonal stroke, especially that to the lower right. This characteristic stroke has famously been called 'silkworm head and wild goose tail' (蠶頭雁尾 cántóu yànwěi)in Chinese due to its distinctive shape." This certainly adds some color, no? :) BTW, I've been doing some reading on ancient scripts, from oracle bones to seal script, and have discovered that the main way to write was always with a brush, not carving in bone or wood or casting in bronzes. There's a popular misconception about this because it's mainly the harder, carved materials which survived. This is relevant to a recent addition of yours on seal script; just FYI. You might want to read Qiu Xigui for a serious but readable intro on the topic (see references on Asian Calligraphy page). Cheers!Dragonbones 01:22, 28 March 2006 (UTC)

Seven Sages[edit]

Just wanted to say that I think your template for the Seven Sages of the Bamboo Grove looks really nice. Keep up the good work. -Colin Kimbrell 21:16, 4 April 2006 (UTC)

Questions[edit]

I'm very glad to see you got some sound samples on Guqin. I had a couple of questions - (1) Did you have any problems taking hte samples you recorded, converting them into ogg, uploading them, and linking from the article? Is there anything in the documentation that could be improved? (2) Now that I can hear what a Guqin sounds like, I am extremely curious - what would Pachelbel's Canon (my favorite piece of classical music) sound like on the Guqin? Raul654 11:09, 17 April 2006 (UTC)

Guqin[edit]

Why is there only the traditional chinese symbols and not the simplified type for Guqin? Bibliomaniac15 00:07, 20 April 2006 (UTC)

Award[edit]

HA HA HA! I don't know what a "bi disc" is but I'm very proud to have it. Thanks! Badagnani 22:20, 20 April 2006 (UTC)

Well, it's very attractive and enhances the aesthetics of my user page, adding a distinctly Asian touch--appropriate since I work on a lot of articles about Asian music, food, etc. It reminds me of the old Chinese coins with the hole in the middle. You'd better take a look at the copyright status of that photo; it seems unclear but as someone has submitted their photo details it shouldn't be difficult to get the right copyright notice there. Otherwise it could disappear at any moment. Badagnani 22:31, 20 April 2006 (UTC)

Userpage "me" table[edit]

Hi there! I just checked your profile and saw that you have a table just like mine on your page (just like an old version of mine, actually, since I have since added neat expandable userbox tables). Did you get it from mine? Because if so, that is really cool! Goes to show what a small world this is, I guess. —Michiel Sikma, 06:59, 21 April 2006 (UTC)

Sanxian[edit]

Hi! Great work on Chinese Music. I myself am trying to help to contribute to the articles on Chinese and Japanese music. I was just wondering how you made the chinese instrument userboxes, and whether it would be possible to add one for the sanxian? I'm starting to play it. I'm quite new to this, but I'll be making userboxes for Japanese instruments when I start playing the koto.

Good luck with your manga!

Dæmon 11:24, 11 May 2006 (UTC)

Userboxes[edit]

I see what you mean. I wouldn't want to force more work on you, so I'll do them, but I'll probably only start in 2-4 weeks time. Thanks for the pointer though. I'll definitely set aside time to do that.

Dæmon 10:36, 12 May 2006 (UTC)

Jieshi Diao Youlan[edit]

If you want to contribute the original chinese text of the manuscript, I'm sure wikisource would gladly accept it. We can link to that from the article and it'll be easily accessible. Night Gyr 15:55, 14 May 2006 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Qintech Pi.PNG[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Qintech Pi.PNG. The image description page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Playing technique images[edit]

Hi there. Since you're the main contributor to the Guqin article, I feel I should ask this: do you have the original versions of the playing technique images (without the white lines drawn on, such as here: Image:Qintech_Gun.jpg)? I personally find the white aliased lines to be quite ugly, and would like to replace them with more proper and anti-aliased lines. The Guqin article is my favorite of all Wikipedia articles that I've seen so far, by the way. It's pretty amazing how much information is in it, and how you even linked a lot of Chinese characters to Wiktionary entries. Great job on that! —Michiel Sikma, 22:12, 25 May 2006 (UTC)

Yayue/liyue[edit]

Charlie, as the resident expert on ancient Chinese/Confucian music here, can you check my addition to the Yayue article that a synonym is "liyue"? (In Korea it's called "yeak.") Badagnani 22:13, 3 June 2006 (UTC)

I'd better remove that, then. It comes from Korean music. There's an Isang Yun piece called "Reak" whose title is derived from this term "ritual music" (yeak / ryeak) and I guessed the term came from China. Badagnani 18:02, 5 June 2006 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:96px-Lian Zhu - Shi - horizontal.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:96px-Lian Zhu - Shi - horizontal.jpg. However, the image may soon be deleted unless we can determine the copyright holder and copyright status. The Wikimedia Foundation is very careful about the images included in Wikipedia because of copyright law (see Wikipedia's Copyright policy).

The copyright holder is usually the creator, the creator's employer, or the last person who was transferred ownership rights. Copyright information on images is signified using copyright templates. The three basic license types on Wikipedia are open content, public domain, and fair use. Find the appropriate template in Wikipedia:Image copyright tags and place it on the image page like this: {{TemplateName}}.

Please signify the copyright information on any other images you have uploaded or will upload. Remember that images without this important information can be deleted by an administrator. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me, or ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. —Bkell (talk) 01:03, 7 June 2006 (UTC)

Origin of suona[edit]

Which Wei Dynasty? It sounds right, but do you have a source for this? People will use our article as a source and I want it to be right. Wang Min's dissertation (done here at my university a few years ago) would probably say as well. Badagnani 11:04, 18 June 2006 (UTC)

Chulhyungum[edit]

Hi Charlie, hope you enjoyed California. I love it myself, personally. I've never seen this instrument anywhere else and it's worth sending an email to Prof. Garfias to see what he thinks. But I don't know, maybe it's some kind of one-off home-rigged thing. Essentially it's like some kind of Korean dobro, I think. The player is amazing, with amazing control. I love this recording. Badagnani 23:14, 3 July 2006 (UTC)

He did previously have a description of this instrument on his "sounds" page but unfortunately that page seems to be down, with no Google cache. Too bad. You might let him know about that if you write to him. Badagnani 23:17, 3 July 2006 (UTC)

Good work! I don't know how that page got un-linked on his site but I'm glad it's still there, because it's a magnificent service that he puts these things there for us. Look at the fretting on that thing! Pretty wild. I am pretty sure it's a one-of-a-kind instrument but I may be wrong. Badagnani 23:34, 3 July 2006 (UTC)

Regarding {{Qin project}}[edit]

It might be confused with the Qin Dynasty... although there isn't one such project. May I suggest a rename to {{Guqin project}}? -- Миборовский 02:43, 26 August 2006 (UTC)

OK, thanks. -- Миборовский 12:10, 26 August 2006 (UTC)

Laruan[edit]

Hi Charlie, we need the tone for the first syllable of Laruan. I can't figure it out because the Wiktionary article for "la" has so many different tones listed! Is it the same tone as the "la" in "la mian"? Badagnani 05:00, 5 September 2006 (UTC)

Zu or zhu?[edit]

Hi Charlie, shouldn't the instrument named in the Gao Jianli article be the zhu, not zu? Badagnani 18:42, 8 September 2006 (UTC)

Thanks, I've made the change, and added two of the three films about Gao Jianli. Do you think Zhang Yimou's "Hero" be added? Apparently the character isn't given the name Gao Jianli in that film. Badagnani 18:50, 8 September 2006 (UTC)

Utada in Chinese[edit]

Charlie, were you aware of this? Badagnani 04:28, 24 September 2006 (UTC)

Super Girl contestant Shang Wenjie copied Utada down to the fast vibrato (but this singer doesn't have as much style). But how did they get the syllables to match? I understand that when Asian songs are copied from language to language the original lyrics suffer, because they're totally rewritten and sometimes the meaning of the new lyrics is completely different. Can you get a sense of if the Chinese version is about the same thing? Badagnani 18:14, 24 September 2006 (UTC)

Article about Wikipedia Users[edit]

Hello,

Wikipedia user David Badagnani directed me to your user page. I am a freelance writer working on an article about the wide array of people who make Wikipedia their life, their passion, their pastime. Wikipedia “addicts” if you will. I’m looking for people just willing to tell their story of how they got sucked into the intellectual whirlwind that is Wikipedia; how you got started editing, how the obsession grew, and what you spend your time focusing on these days? Do you write articles from scratch? Is your main push toward one particular type of article? Do you patrol for typos and errors, or spend your time diligently fixing vandalism? Do you take part in the “social aspects” of Wikipedia; engaging in animated discussions or decorating your user page with all sorts of internet memes? Have you ever forced yourself to take a “Wikipedia break”? If so, what’s your 20/20 hindsight on the obsession? Basically I’m just trying to get an idea of what it’s like for various Wikipedia “addicts.” If you are interested in participating, please email me at brianwrites@gmail.com

If anybody else, other than this user is interested in participating, feel free to email me as well. This article is intended to be a light informational piece, nothing too heavy or controversial, just merely introducing readers to a subculture that they likely had no idea existed. So please don’t email me with your conspiracy theories, or your grudge against the Wikipedia hierarchy… unless it directly applies to your overall experience with the site. This article is about the USERS, not about the pros and cons of the site itself.

Thanks,

Brian68.39.158.205 01:42, 11 November 2006 (UTC)

Edit Summary[edit]

Hi, Your making some great edits to Wikipedia, but I've noticed a few edits on my Watchlist where you've not used an Edit Summary, even this small 30 second action can be a great help to Wikipedia, as it allows RC and Vandalism patrollers to better understand why and edit has been made and what was done. Once again, many thanks for your edits to Wikipedia. Best wishes and Kind Regards - Heligoland | Talk | Contribs 00:20, 19 November 2006 (UTC)

Hello Charlie Boy[edit]

Hi Charlie: This is Mei Sie from Bellingham, WA, US. I just start to play guqin, wanna talk? My teacher is a classmate of Li Xiangting and Gong Yi. His name is WU Ziying and he is from Shanghai. He was the Chair of the Shanghai Guqin Assn and now he lives in the States near Seattle. -- Mei Sie

  • Hi Mei Sie. It would be better to bring the discussion onto my music forum (look under Links at the top). I can respond more effectively there. --Charlie Huang 【正矗昊】 16:26, 22 November 2006 (UTC)

Need hanzi help[edit]

Hi Charlie, I've just noticed that there are some alternate spellings for yazheng/yaqin/ajaeng. Can you check Traditional Chinese musical instruments and look at the hidden tag I've put next to "yazheng" and check your sources? There seem to be three characters used and I'm not sure which is the most accurate. Also, the Koreans often use a slightly different character for the same instrument. The spellings are 雅筝, 轧筝, and 牙筝, of which the last one seems to be used as the Korean hanja. There are some pages for these things, such as http://www.hawh.cn/Template/article/display31.jsp?mid=20050112108494 Thanks! Badagnani 06:40, 4 December 2006 (UTC)

OK, I think I've figured it out (and made the requisite changes). The first character, 雅, is the one for yayue, so that's not right. The second character, 轧, is the one for yazheng, and the third character, 牙, is the one Koreans use for their ajaeng. Badagnani 14:45, 4 December 2006 (UTC)

Qinxue Congshu ISBN[edit]

  • Hi Charlie, I need a little translation here please. I am merely one of a number of editors attempting to resolve over 2000 ISBN errors so that we may electronically convert the older 10 digit system to the newer 13 digit isbn system. If you are writing in regards to a page that I noted with a , you will note that at the bottom of that page there is also a flag note stating that this flag had an invalid isbn. If I made an inadvertent correction, please accept my apology. I am using a number of different research tools in an attempt to resolve isbn's in error. Please send me the name of the page name that you are asking about or the wikipedia url. I appreciate your support in resolving this matter. Ekotkie 15:04, 10 January 2007 (UTC)
  • The page in question is the guqin one. I have found and corrected the ISBN (I mistyped one number because it wasn't clearly printed on my copy of the book). --Charlie Huang 【正矗昊】 15:19, 10 January 2007 (UTC)
  • I somewhat recognized the cover page. Thank you for your assistance in correcting this matter. I was only interested in locating a correct 10 digit isbn. Wiki has a bot ready to go back through the entire library and convert over to the 13 digit isbn. There still is some concern about making this final move to 13 digit. I too understand the issue of making a typing error. I have made a number of them. Sometimes it comes from attempting to insert the hyphen into their proper location. I have quit using hyphen's all together. Most of the large catalog users only give a single string of numbers without hyphens. A final not, I hope that when you placed the correct isbn into its location that you also removed the error notification template that was originally placed by the reviewing bot. If you don't remove the template, a "invalid ISBN" statement will appear at the bottom of the page. Charlie, have a great day and thanks again for your help. Ekotkie 16:51, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

Hong Kong Wiki page[edit]

Hi Charlie. Could you do me a big favor and please check your Hong Kong library for the following citation here on Wiki: Hong Kong and a cited reference, Mathematical Modelling of Hong Kong Political and Economical Development by Derek Lam.

The ISBN (10 digit would be fine) as cited is incorrect and a "Invalid ISBN" tag is located at the bottom of the page. If you can locate this book and ISBN,. Please go ahead and fix the error. I would really appreciate it. Thanks, Ed_K Ekotkie 17:22, 11 January 2007 (UTC)

Charlie, I thank you for the assist and will duly note yours and my efforts. I tend to suspect a 23 page "book". It may well have been a thesis paper. Why it ended up with an ISBN is beyond me. I'll turn this over to the team leader and press on. We still have close to 2000 items to check out. I try to give a good search of foreign but sometimes its just better to have a contact in that language country. Again, thank you and I'll keep your name in my contact file. I would rather drop the ISBN all together and leave the source info for some other hardy soul to go dig for. Have a great day. Ed_KEkotkie 22:14, 11 January 2007 (UTC)

Contemporary guqin players[edit]

Hi, I have suggested a move of this article to "List of contemporary guqin players". If you have any objections, please mention them at Talk:Contemporary guqin players. --Ideogram 22:57, 19 February 2007 (UTC)

Links at Guqin[edit]

The opinion that there were too many links at Guqin was just that, an opinion. I don't think you had to feel a necessity to remove any as the editor didn't say which ones s/he felt were extraneous. Other edits by this editor weren't helpful to the various music articles s/he edited over the past days, and some showed a lack of understanding of our practice as regards redirects, etc. Badagnani 10:49, 21 February 2007 (UTC)

Regarding edits to Qin schools[edit]

Thank you for contributing to Wikipedia, CharlieHuang! However, your edit here was reverted by an automated bot that attempts to remove spam from Wikipedia. If you were trying to insert a good link, please accept my creator's apologies, but note that the link you added, matching rule proboards\d{1,3}\.com, is on my list of links to remove and probably shouldn't be included in Wikipedia. Please read Wikipedia's external links policy for more information. If the link was to an image, please read Wikipedia's image tutorial on how to use a more appropriate method to insert the image into an article. If your link was intended to promote a site you own, are affiliated with, or will make money from inclusion in Wikipedia, please note that inserting spam into Wikipedia is against policy. For more information about me, see my FAQ page. Thanks! Shadowbot 15:52, 25 March 2007 (UTC)

Any idea what this instrument is?[edit]

Chinesezither.jpg Is it a yazheng or yaqin? Or a guqin? The stick makes me think it's a yaqin. Probably not a zhu, from its shape. I'm unsure of the date of the engraving. Badagnani 02:03, 3 April 2007 (UTC)

Hmm, she's holding the stick so daintily I wonder how she gets any sound whatsoever. I see 7 strings. Any idea of the time period? It's an all-female group, playing old-style instruments including konghou--maybe Tang or Sung? See Konghou and Yunluo for other clips I've made from this engraving. Badagnani 10:04, 3 April 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Hero guqin.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading Image:Hero guqin.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box.

Possible Wrong Emperor Image[edit]

The pictures for Emperor Bing of Song and Emperor Duanzong of Song may be reversed. I have a book here that shows the pictures and they are opposite of Bing and Duanzong. Benjwong 05:03, 9 May 2007 (UTC)

I was hoping you have some opinions about it? Maybe? Benjwong 03:46, 10 May 2007 (UTC)
Some good news. Your image is correct. There was actually a mistake in the book after doing more research. Glad I didn't change anything. Benjwong 20:40, 11 May 2007 (UTC)

Casual Hanfu[edit]

I've always thought that without (1) the formal garment elements or (2) "multiple layer" in manner of 三重衣 (or higher), the rest of the hanfu described are more or less considered "casual". By casual I mean that they were worn on a day to day basis and resembles what people would see on "casual fridays" in a office environment. Is there an even more casual form of hanfu? Sjschen 18:13, 1 June 2007 (UTC)

In that case, what would a hanfu individual wear "casually" at home in the dynastic times? I've always though that the informal hanfu was worn casually at home. This information should be added to the article if possible. Sjschen 22:22, 2 June 2007 (UTC)

Image source problem with Image:Ancient guqin.jpg[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading Image:Ancient guqin.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, then you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, then their copyright should also be acknowledged.

As well as adding the source, please add a proper copyright licensing tag if the file doesn't have one already. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Fair use, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 08:40, 20 July 2007 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Liftarn 08:40, 20 July 2007 (UTC)


Orphaned non-free image (Image:Seth Lakeman.JPG)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Seth Lakeman.JPG. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed.

Image:Junko_Ueda.jpg[edit]

I have tagged Image:Junko_Ueda.jpg as {{orphaned fairuse}}. In order for the image to be kept at Wikipedia, it must be included in at least one article. If this image is being used as a link target instead of displayed inline, please add {{not orphan}} to the image description page to prevent it being accidentally marked as orphaned again.

Replaceable fair use Image:Wangfeiguqin0311.jpg[edit]

Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:Wangfeiguqin0311.jpg. I noticed the 'image' page specifies that the image is being used under fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first fair use criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed image could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this image is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the image description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original Replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace the fair use image by finding a freely licensed image of its subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or a similar) image under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our fair use criteria. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that fair use images which could be replaced by free-licensed alternatives will be deleted 7 days after this notification, per our Fair Use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. — Carl (CBM · talk) 16:17, 30 August 2007 (UTC)

Academic attire images[edit]

Greetings. It appears you have added a number of photos to the above article. If so, would you consider moving at least a few of them fromthe right margin to "mix it up" a bit? Perhaps consider places images directly into text that the image might illustrate the main idea of the paragraph better? Thanks! Shoreranger 13:34, 25 September 2007 (UTC)

Shun[edit]

Hi, could you help me find the character for a rare ancient Chinese instrument called the "shun"? Liang Tsai-Ping writes about it in his "Chinese Musical Instruments & Pictures" (1970), but I wonder if this character isn't included in the package that one is able to type on the computer. The left side of the character is "jin" (gold), the right side has what looks like "mian" (roof) on top, "kou" (mouth/entrance/opening) in the middle, and "zi" (son) at the bottom. I can't find this character anywhere. There is a type of "shun" he describes that is a bell shaped like a monkey (hanging in a circle), called a "wei-shun," and the character for "wei" is 帷. This doesn't help on a Google search, though. Thanks in advance. Badagnani 22:10, 8 October 2007 (UTC)

Dynasty[edit]

Hi Charlie, can you tell which dynasty this photo is from? Since there's a konghou, I would guess it's either Ming, Sung, or Tang. See what you think about my guesses about the instruments, too. Badagnani (talk) 23:39, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

How about the instruments? I made a list at the photo. Do you think the one on the table is a guqin or a guzheng? Also, the bowing technique for the yaqin (if that's what it is) seems strange, as I would think I'd want to bow it near the end of the string. Maybe it's just an artist's rendering rather than trying to be true to life. Badagnani (talk) 20:06, 21 February 2008 (UTC)

Image source problem with Image:Peter Wildeblood.jpg[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading Image:Peter Wildeblood.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, their copyright should also be acknowledged.

As well as adding the source, please add a proper copyright licensing tag if the file doesn't have one already. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 23:49, 29 April 2008 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Polly (Parrot) 23:49, 29 April 2008 (UTC)

I looked on the Commons page where your photo of yourself in some academic dress is hosted and I found a long list of photos of you in all sorts of other academic outfits.

Apology[edit]

Dear Charlie

I am very sorry for having posted a message on your page without being signed in first. I was in a bit of a hurry and not thinking about what I was doing. I should be very interested if you were to tell whether you have posted photographs of yourself in your various academic dress anywhere on the internet where everyone can see them. Do you have a blog, a personal web-page, a flickr account, etc? Could you post them in the Facebook group I mentioned, or on an academic dress site, if it is not allowed to post so many photos on here? You are obviously a real expert and really passionate about academic dress and I think it would be a significant contribution to the knowledge and enjoyment of fellow academic dress enthusiasts if you were to make your various academic costumes available to all of us online. Could you at least tell me what the outfit is that you are wearing in the photo on here? I noticed something called LittMus; what is that please?

All very best wishes

Facebook and e-bay by themselves are not reliable sources.

The media file you uploaded as File:Qianlong older med.jpg appears to be missing information as to its authorship (and or source), or if you did provide such information, it is confusing for others trying to make use of the image.

It would be appreciated if you would consider updating the file description page, to make the authorship of the media clearer.

Although some images may not need author information in obvious cases, (such where an applicable source is provided), authorship information aids users of the image, and helps ensure that appropriate credit is given (a requirement of some licenses).

  • If you created this media yourself, please consider explicitly including your user name, for which: {{subst:usernameexpand|CharlieHuang}} will produce an appropriate expansion,
    or use the {{own}} template.
  • If this is an old image, for which the authorship is unknown or impossible to determine, please indicate this on the file description page.
If you have any questions please see Help:File page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 02:13, 29 December 2011 (UTC)
