Macau-China border crossings[edit]

Would you please expand the nav template following the lines of that of HK? I.e. adding piers that are ports of entry? 218.250.143.16 (talk) 18:23, 5 June 2011 (UTC)

Categorisation of Macau and Hong Kong[edit]

Can you help look into the following problem? From what I observed, many Hong Kong and Macau categories are subcats of the corresponding by-country parent categories (by their status of dependencies), and are subcats of the corresponding China or PRC categories with a <spacebar>Macau or <spacebar>Hong Kong catsort (in some cases an asterisk is used instead in place of the <spacebar> tho). But when I apply it to other categories, SchmuckyTheCat (talk · contribs) undid them en masse. Please response at WP talk:Categorisation. 218.250.159.25 (talk) 20:51, 15 February 2012 (UTC)

Cut and paste move[edit]

Hi, I've reverted your cut-and-paste move of Ngwa. I guess you weren't aware that cut-and-paste moves aren't allowed. Please read WP:move for the proper ways of moving pages. Also please read WP:Primarytopic: not all topics are equal. A disused romanization of Wuhua County is not as prominent as a people in Nigeria. In such cases, a WP:hatnote would be sufficient (I've added one to Ngwa), and turning Ngwa to a disambiguation page is unwarranted. Regards, Zanhe (talk) 08:33, 19 July 2012 (UTC)

I'm sorry for the mistake. Thanks for letting me know! Douglas the Comeback Kid (talk) 02:43, 20 July 2012 (UTC)
No worries. Happy editing! -Zanhe (talk) 05:01, 20 July 2012 (UTC)

Romanization[edit]

Hello Douglas. I see that you are adding the old Romanized name to a lot of Chinese articles. I'm not sure that such information deserves a place in the first sentence of the lede, or even the lede at all. Perhaps it is fact best placed in the history sections. What do you think? Anna Frodesiak (talk) 16:12, 20 July 2012 (UTC)

Hi Anna! Some Chinese places are also known by their Chinese Postal Map Romanisation names (e. g., Peking ('Beijing')), and these have also been used by many books, particularly those published in the time when Hanyu Pinyin spelling, the current standard for romanising Chinese place names, was not common. I believe the inclusion of Chinese Postal Map Romanisation spelling, which had long been the standard for romanising Chinese place names, can reflect its historic status as the standard for romanising Chinese place names and facilitate research on China. Douglas the Comeback Kid (talk) 16:27, 20 July 2012 (UTC)
Hi Douglas. I think it's good information too. I also think that most people visiting the pages for serious research would certainly encounter the Romanization if placed in the history section. It just seems to occupy such a large part of the top of the lede. I'm not sure that it serves most of the visitors most of the time. Anna Frodesiak (talk) 16:33, 20 July 2012 (UTC)
As I've mentioned before, not all of the Chinese Postal Map Romanisation names are 'historic'; so I don't think placing all Chinese Postal Map Romanisation names in the history section is appropriate. Also, I don't see how five extra words (i. e. 'Chinese', 'Postal', 'Map', 'Romanisation' and the Chinese Postal Map Romanisation name) can ocupy a 'large part' of the top of the lede.
By the way, the inclusion of the Chinese Postal Map Romanisation names at the top of the lede is a common practice in the corresponding articles in the Chinese Wikipedia.
I think you're worrying too much about this, Anna. Douglas the Comeback Kid (talk) 05:31, 21 July 2012 (UTC)
You're probably right. How many articles does this affect? Anna Frodesiak (talk) 23:22, 21 July 2012 (UTC)
I take you're asking how many Chinese Postal Map Romanisation names have been included in articles so far. I'm afraid I don't know the exact number - before I did my edits, I'd already seen quite a number of articles about Chinese places with the corresponding Chinese Postal Map Romanisation names included in the English Wikipedia. Douglas the Comeback Kid (talk) 07:53, 23 July 2012 (UTC)
Hi Douglas. I posted at Wikiproject China to see what others think. I'm very much an inclusionist, yet am not sure whether or not these additions are a good idea. So, I am rather concerned that, sooner or later, someone else will challenge and undo your hard work.
Also, I don't know what I'm doing half the time. I trust the community far more than my own judgement.
Please see: Wikipedia talk:WikiProject China#Chinese Postal Map Romanisation in the lede of location articles

Use pinyin[edit]

Hey, I undid your recent edits to Republic of China (1912–1949). The existing guideline is WP:PINYIN, which states to use pinyin by default unless a non-pinyin form is more common. Mainland Chinese geographical place names in contemporary historical scholarship are universally rendered in pinyin, no matter the time period in question, and our current Manual of Style supports this convention. --Jiang (talk) 19:53, 24 October 2012 (UTC)

Template:Cantonese cuisine[edit]

Hi, I have seen your edits at "Template:Cantonese cuisine". In most cases I have no problem with your removals, but I don't understand the removal of Pineapple bun and Eggette. Can you explain why you have removed them? The Banner talk 00:20, 25 March 2013 (UTC)

Pineapple bun and eggette are not 'Cantonese' because the cooking method and the source of inspiration is western. They are essntially 'western food' created in the East. Douglas the Comeback Kid (talk) 00:31, 25 March 2013 (UTC)
Ah, okay. I was a bit confused because they seemed to have a separate Cantonese name. But to your opinion it is "imported food". Clear, thanks. The Banner talk 10:24, 25 March 2013 (UTC)
No problem. Pineapple bun and eggette are Hong Kong inventions. The languages of Hong Kong are English and Cantonese Chinese, so they have both a Cantonese Chinese name and an English name. Douglas the Comeback Kid (talk) 15:44, 25 March 2013 (UTC)

Verax[edit]

Hi! I noticed that here the Chinese names of the Chinese characters and actors were deleted. Why was this the case? WhisperToMe (talk) 05:46, 21 August 2013 (UTC)

  • The Chinese names of the three ethnic Han Chinese directors are important and need to be displayed. Even though they are NOT Chinese citizens, they are ethnic Chinese and the practice with ethnic Chinese is to show their Chinese names. See Amy Tan, Andrew Lih, Amy Chua, etc. Also the Variety magazine article on the film places the Chinese names of the directors in it, calling attention to those names.

Edits on Mumbai, Kochi, etc[edit]

Hi Douglas the Comeback Kid, I've seen your edits on cities like Mumbai, Kochi etc where you changed "formely known as" to "also known as". This made me a little confused since by law, Mumbai has replaced Bombay but still some people continue to refer to it by the old name. The same can be said for other city names too. So don't you think formerly is more accurate, at least in the lead? while there can be mention of the old name still being used in the rest of the article or something. -Ugog Nizdast (talk) 06:41, 18 September 2013 (UTC)

Hi, Ugog Nizdast! Yes, I'm aware that the official names of those cities have been changed while some people continue to use the former offical names: since people use both names interchangeably, I don't see why using 'also known as' is inappropriate; also, it's been explained in the rest of the article that there have been changes in the offical names, so I don't think it'll be confusing. Douglas the Comeback Kid (talk) 09:33, 18 September 2013 (UTC)
Hmmm then you will also know the "political weight" such a wording would carry :) I really don't know whether it's appropriate for the article or not, and you do have a point. All I'm worried about is these might attract some regional chauvinists/anonymous/troublesome editors, if not now, then certainly in the future. -Ugog Nizdast (talk) 09:45, 18 September 2013 (UTC)
Since it's a fact that both names are used interchangeably, they've no legitimate reason to dispute that and we can always shut them up by pointing to this fact. Douglas the Comeback Kid (talk) 14:31, 18 September 2013 (UTC)
I see...then it's all good. Thanks for your time, Ugog Nizdast (talk) 14:41, 18 September 2013 (UTC)

Edits to Zimbabwean place names[edit]

Good morning. I have reverted your edits changing formerly known/spelt as to also known as. The older names were replaced in May 1983 by the Names (Alteration) Act Chapter 10:14 and have not been in common use since then. They are not alternate names but historic names no longer in use. Babakathy (talk) 07:27, 7 October 2013 (UTC)

And the same applies to rivers. The older names are not alternative names but historic names no longer in use. Whilst identifying them as former names is helpful, referring to them as alternatives is misleading. We don't say Rhodesia is an alternative name for Zimbabwe or Zambia, for example - or that the USSR is an alternative name for the Russian Federation. Babakathy (talk) 10:13, 11 November 2013 (UTC)

Removing .ax?[edit]

Can you explain the rationale behind this edit (you left the edit summary empty)? The .ax domain is used by for example http://www.posten.ax/ and these institutions are found on the island of Åland, which is a part of Finland. --hydrox (talk) 16:16, 3 November 2013 (UTC)

Hi, hydrox! I've removed '.ax' from the list because my understanding is that the Åland Islands is a Finnish dependent territory and not fully part of Finland: it is a common practice to treat dependent territories as separate entities. The country infobox, rather than a 'state'/'province'/'autonomous region' infobox, is used in the article 'Åland Islands', so I believe that there is a need to maintain consistency of style by treating the Åland Islands as a separate entity from Finland across all Wikipedia articles and that the removal of '.ax' is justified. Douglas the Comeback Kid (talk) 16:33, 3 November 2013 (UTC)
Åland is a Finnish province with partial autonomy. It's status is quite similar to that of Hong Kong and Macau in relation to PRC, or Faroe Islands in relation to Denmark. I can now see, that it is the prevailing practice to leave any partially autonomous territories TLDs out from the main country article, so I am happy with this as it now stands. Thanks, hydrox (talk) 16:44, 3 November 2013 (UTC)

The Treason Act 1814[edit]

Hello. I have noticed your edits to this article. There are a number of sources that appear to say that the definite article is part of the short title, including copies of the Short Titles Act 1896, Halsbury's Statutes, The Statutes Revised, certain pages on legislation.gov.uk and Schedules of repeals from Acts passed up to the 1970s. There are some sources which might indicate the contrary, particularly more recent Schedules of repeals, but I am not aware of anything conclusive. James500 (talk) 16:24, 31 January 2014 (UTC)

Newspaper of record[edit]

Hello. I don't really care what Hong Kong is, or what it is arguably comparable to. It's part of China and the chart lists entries by country. The last thing we need is a constant debate over whether we should be listing parts of countries with various special statuses separately. There is no consensus for your proposed change, so as per WP:CON and WP:BRD, please take it to the talk page. I'm happy to abide by any clear consensus, but until then please do not revert back to your proposed change. If there is a policy or guideline that says we should list Hong Kong separately, or some past discussion precisely on point, then please point that out on the talk page as that would be helpful to know. I am happy to get the input of editors over at WP:CHINA if you think that would be helpful. Thanks. --Skeezix1000 (talk) 14:23, 6 March 2014 (UTC)

It's very pathetic of many people to simply take on board misconceptions or even what Chinese (ultra-)nationalists/propaganda say without thinking. Hong Kong belongs to China but is not 'part of China'. One good example that illustrates this point is the fact that there is a 'proper' border between Hong Kong and China: a border with border guards, barbed wires, fences, watch towers and checkpoints. The nature of Hong Kong's status is equivalent to a British Overseas Territory because of the fact that she belongs to another country but is not part of that country. Territories of this kind are commonly listed as a separate entities and are often referred to as 'country' in the English language. For the record, if you're to get users over from a Wikiproject group to join in the discussion, it should be WP:HK, not WP:CHINA, since it's a Hong Kong-related issue, not a Chinese-related issue. If it's Wikipedia users' consensus not to endorse the truth and the most accurate description, then I shall defer while expressing my profound disappointment. I'm not interested in continuing this conversation with you. Through expressions like 'I don't care what Hong Kong is', 'part of China' and 'parts of countries', you've shown that you're self-opinionated, have no respect for the Hong Kongers' identity like many Chinese and are not prepared to accept different opinions, even though you attempted to keep the tone civil: I can't stand talking to anyone like that. 'You can dress a monkey in silk, but it's still a monkey': this describes both the Chinese - who're now getting richer and beginning to be able to enjoy better living standards - and the Chinese-minded non-Chinese perfectly well. Douglas the Comeback Kid (talk) 18:24, 10 March 2014 (UTC)
Your response above, including but not limited to the incorrect assumptions you've made, as well as this move, are quite inappropriate. When you are prepared to behave like a grown-up, please join us on the article talk page if you wish to pursue this. Regards, Skeezix1000 (talk) 13:07, 11 March 2014 (UTC)
There's a price for the Chinese nationalists and anyone else holding your view on that issue, and you've just got your small share of unhappiness - it could have been larger if you weren't a 'Commonwealth cousin'. Grown-up monkeys dressed in silk are still monkeys, and childish humans dressed in silk are still humans. I don't wish to pursue this on the talk page because I don't think the 'discussion' will be possible due to the potentially-huge amount of monkeys participating: my brain cannot operate like monkeys - many of which are, sadly, Wikipedia users - and theirs can't operate like mine, so I don't think the two parties can communicate. What we're having here on this page is a pointless argument over whether the humans should follow the monkeys' decision and is a complete waste of our time, so it should stop. I sincerely hope that you'll abandon your acquired 'monkeyist' views and values and re-adopt the values of the world we were both born into. Stop messaging me, you inferior Canadian monkey of the very inferior Celestials. Douglas the Comeback Kid (talk) 00:01, 12 March 2014 (UTC)
