Catalan mythology[edit]

I've never actually been involved in any mythological articles, and I don't remember why I created the redirect. I suspect that I typed "Catalan mythology" into the search box, discovered that it didn't exist, and created a redirect to the existing Catalan myths and legends article, to help people find the existing article. I would have no objection to you moving Catalan myths and legends to Catalan mythology; I don't know anything about how those articles are usually named. Good luck! -- Creidieki 22:18, 8 April 2006 (UTC)

Guess who[edit]

Go on, guess. Plasticbagparachute 20:09, 27 April 2006 (UTC)

Regarding your post on the Falun Gong Talk Page[edit]

Friend, I read you post on the Falun Gong talk page. The page was locked after a great deal of vandalism and there is a lot of such material and non-facutal stuff inside. I request your help in editing the article. And also with the page : Falun Gong Teachings

You may also get to better understand the cultivation system of Falun Dafa from the website www.falundafa.org Thanks. Dilip rajeev 11:11, 30 April 2006 (UTC)

On Swastika[edit]

I understand that Hitler appropriated the ancient Symbol for his use.. You may aprreciate my edit better if you see the last version:"The Falun emblem is the symbol of the Falun Gong. According to Li “this Falun emblem is the miniature of the universe.” The central character is the Chinese 卍, wàn. Unfortunately, the similarity to the Nazi Hakenkreuz provokes relapse in schizophrenics, who perceive spurious connections."  :)

The Swastika is an ancient symbol that appears in many traditions from the mayan, the mesopotamian, The Greek to the The indus Valley Civilization ( which according to the theories of present day anthropology was wiped out in the "Aryan" Invasion ):

This Iranian necklace was excavated from Kaluraz, Guilan, first millennium BC, National Museum of Iran.

Infact a lot of what the texts on anthropolgy tell is far from accurate. We have enough evidence to completely re-write the books on anthropolgy. The swastika is not an invention of any religion or culture. Gautama Buddha didnt take the Symbol from Hinduism. This is because they consider the Dharma to be some form of speculative philosophy and theory taken from old texts... The ancient scriptures of vedic India solemnly affirm that the Dharma is not specualtve Philosophy. The Buddhist Scriptures tell us:

" The Dhamma is not a speculative philosophy, but is the Universal Law found through enlightenment and is preached precisely. "

I'd be glad if you could contribute to the article... Falun Dafa is an ancient cultivation practice ( direct translation of the Chinese Term Xiu Lian ), a Great Way (Dafa) of the Buddha School ( pls dont confuse with the relgion of Buddhism). You may get to understand the cultivation system of Falun Dafa from the page www.falundafa.org . Thank you.

Berties Oratory Skills[edit]

Hi Elevenscout, I was the author of the sentence that you removed as vandalism. I have added my response to Talk:Bertie Ahern, can you take a look and let me know if you can change your mind. -- Rye1967 00:40, 24 May 2006 (UTC)

Hi[edit]

Hi there...not sure if this was you logged out... :-) --HappyCamper 20:06, 24 May 2006 (UTC)

Is that right? Are all those IPs vandalism edits then in the page history? --HappyCamper 20:14, 24 May 2006 (UTC)
Hmm...well, it sure looks like it. I'm going to semi-protect the page. It seems to be the best solution, given that the vandalism is chronic. Cheers! --HappyCamper 20:18, 24 May 2006 (UTC)
No problem. Consider yourself armed with an admin on your side :-) I'll do my best to make sure these accounts act in accordance with Wikipedia's established policies and best practises. After all, we are here because we want to write a good encyclopedia! Vandalism edits are contrary to that cause. Just come by and leave a message whenever you feel like it, and I'll take the time to look into things for you. See you around! --HappyCamper 20:24, 24 May 2006 (UTC)
Hi there - I think a few months should be plenty so I've lifted it. I'll check up every now and then. Let me know if you have questions. --HappyCamper 02:31, 9 December 2006 (UTC)

Laozi[edit]

You seem to have missed the evidence that I gave; I listed a number of books on philosophy, Asian philosophy, and Chinese philosophy (in order of specificity); the spelling used was overwhelmingly "Laozi".

Ah, I've just found my comment in the Talk page archive:

A quick and unscientific survey of fairly recent reference books to hand, plus some Web-based texts:
  • Laozi
  1. Companion Encyclopedia of Asian Philosophy (edd Carr & Mahalingam)
  2. A Companion to World Philosophies (edd Deutsch & Bontekoe)
  3. A Companion to the Philosophers (ed. Arrington)
  4. Eastern Philosophy: Key readings (ed. Leaman)
  5. Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy
  6. Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy
  7. Chad Hansen's Philosophy Pages
  • Lao-zi
  1. One Hundred Philosophers (Peter J. King}

"Lao Zi" doesn't appear anywhere, and "Laozi" is the clear front runner. --Mel Etitis (Μελ Ετητης) 13:33, 12 August 2005 (UTC)

You say: "It seems to me that none of the references you give are sources specifically devoted to him - only "encyclopedias of philosophy" and the like". True — but Wikipedia is also not a specialised work, but a general encyclopædia, so these references are particularly relevant. As I said in my original comment (from which the figures above are taken), there's no single answer to the question "which transliteration is more common?", as different transliterations will be common in different fields. We need to decide which field is most appropriate for our purposes.
Note that "reliability" doesn't really come into it; the various transliterations are equally correct — they're all attempt to capture in the Roman alphabet the sound of the Chinese by applying a set of conventions, and they're all bound to fail (for example, in so far as there isn't a single Chinese pronunciation across time and geography). --Mel Etitis (Μελ Ετητης) 11:05, 7 June 2006 (UTC)
Thanks for your message; I'm still unclear, though, why you think that specialised works are more likely to use the more generally-used and popular transliteration than general, more popular works. As things stand, we're in line with the two main on-line philosophy encyclopædias and most of the on-line Chinese-philosophy sites, as well as some – at least – of the printed translations and other specialised texts (e.g. The Classic of the Way and Virtue: A New Translation of the "Tao-te Ching" of Laozi as Interpreted by Wang Bi transl. Richard John Lynn [Columbia University Press; ISBN 0231105819] and The Daodejing of Laozi transl. Philip J. Ivanhoe [Hackett; ISBN 0872207013]). --Mel Etitis (Μελ Ετητης) 10:04, 19 June 2006 (UTC)

Yo![edit]

Hiya Ian. Dan. Ooer... I was a wondering... You put Antoku Tennō into yo thar hero list for "bravery". However, it appears he was drowned with by and with his grandmother at the age of 6.

If I get drowned by a relative sometime soon can I be in the list too?

Pweez!

Genpei War[edit]

I'd like to go ahead and expand the Genpei War article, based on inspiration from the entire sections present in the French version that were absent in the English version.

Lafcadio Hearn[edit]

Regarding this edit to the Lafcadio Hearn article: Although Lafcadio Hearn is largely forgotten in the West, he is still remember and respected by the Japanese for his books collecting Japanese legends and ghost tales. Therefore I am restoring the phrase "to the Japanese" to the intro of the article. BlankVerse 10:26, 13 October 2006 (UTC)

Sinn Féin[edit]

The name is sometimes translated as in different books as 'ourselves alone' or 'we alone' this is incorrect, as it means 'ourselves' or 'we ourselves' this is a translation from Irish Gaelic to English, so the text in the article is correct.--padraig3uk 22:30, 2 May 2007 (UTC)

In English they may mean the same, but in the article we are refering to different sources ie books that mis-translate the meaning from Irish to English, so in that context the wording is correct.--padraig3uk 14:24, 3 May 2007 (UTC)

THE Swordsman[edit]

i'm sorry Elvenscout742, the DVD cover uploaded has such poor resolution i couldn't see the "The" and mistook "Swordsman" to be the original title. i will move the article back to its original title and upload a DVD cover art with a slightly better resolution.

Its about a Chinese girl who becomes an assassin but runs away. She eventually finds a girl but is intercepted on the road by 3 or 4 soldiers.

Han (state)[edit]

"shares Chinese characters" implies the name of the said state is only written the same. The State of Han and South Korea are both written and pronounced the same in Chinese and I therefore do not see how it would confuse speakers of other East Asian languages. Thanks for the concern however. If it is confusing to you, I would be happy to explain any of your questions. Hanfresco 06:18, 12 September 2007 (UTC)

which shares the same name - I changed it to that..but it sounds rather awkward. perhaps which shares the same name in East Asian languages? Hanfresco 00:44, 13 September 2007 (UTC)
Or which shares the same name in Chinese, Japanese, and Korean. I have no clue of use in Mongolian you see. Hanfresco 00:48, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

Nihon Shoki[edit]

I think you mis-construed the reference to 660 BC. The gravamen of this section explains that what was once assumed to be "fact" is now believed to be mythical. Your mis-reading suggests that this paragraph was not written well enough, but I don't quite see how an in-line citation will help. What did you have in mind? Maybe I'm the one who's missing the point?

As I understand it, in 1872, the Meiji government proclaimed that February 11, 660 BC in the Gregorian calendar would be considered the foundation day of Japan. This mythical date was commemorated in the holiday Kigensetsu ("Era Day") from 1872 to 1948. The concept was resurrected in 1966 as the national holiday Kenkoku Kinen no hi ("National Foundation Day").

How would you propose we might improve this section of Nihon Shoki? --Ooperhoofd (talk) 19:43, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Ochiai Naobumi[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Ochiai Naobumi requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you.

Tanka Prose vs Uta Monogatari[edit]

Thanks, Elvenscout, for your courtesy note. I've responded rather fully on the Tanka Prose talk page to your prior comments and your argument for erasing it -- "editing," I believe, would be to understate the case. I hope you'll review my comments without bias. In confounding Tanka Prose and Uta monogatari, you have added no clarity but have only muddied the waters. I'd like to stress, also, that tanka prose is an English-language literary movement, that it is derived from Japanese precedent, but that it is not constrained to mimic it. And to point out, also, that Wikipedia has made adequate room elsewhere for discussion of recent or contemporary literary movements. See, for example, the entries "Language Poets," "Visual Poetry," "Nouveau Roman," and many more. Tristan noir (talk) 02:01, 13 September 2012 (UTC)

The article nouveau roman does not claim that while the term itself is a modern appellation, the genre dates back more than a thousand years. Nor does it cite articles that constantly call Marguerite Duras Marguerite Dumas by confusion with the much earlier French novelist. elvenscout742 (talk) 16:43, 13 September 2012 (UTC)
In fact, even though I'm not an expert in French or American literature, I have already heard of 2/3 of those literary movements. All of them pre-date the starting point you and Mr. Woodward give for "modern tanka prose" in English. And none of the articles give the impression that they were written by a single editor with an agenda, based exclusively on obscure primary sources. elvenscout742 (talk) 16:48, 13 September 2012 (UTC)

"Narihara"[edit]

Sorry. I screwed up, didn't I? :( -- 李博杰  | Talk contribs email 06:03, 21 September 2012 (UTC)

You misspelled one name. It's no big deal! :D
I said "Wow" because that article came up in a search for "Narihara", which is a recurring misspelling of that person's name. I was shocked at the prevalence of the spelling online (60,000 hits on Google) and had just come from creating redirects for it to the proper article. I was not trying to make fun of any particular Wikipedia editor. :)
elvenscout742 (talk) 06:06, 21 September 2012 (UTC)
Maybe I should clarify. I saw your redirect creation with the edit summary of how common that misspelling was, and realise that I've been a part of it. It's quite a silly mistake that I made, and I found it quite funny and ironic that I'm not the only one. -- 李博杰  | Talk contribs email 08:02, 21 September 2012 (UTC)
Google "Jeffrey Woodward" Narihara for more information. And that guy has had dozens of articles and books published, including some that get cited on Wikipedia. elvenscout742 (talk) 16:42, 21 September 2012 (UTC)

DRN opening statement[edit]

Hi there. I noticed you filed a request at the dispute resolution noticeboard, and it is a little bit long to read. I think that this is part of the reason that it hasn't been looked at yet. Do you think you could summarise it a little bit more - this may help resolve the dispute faster. Thanks! Steven Zhang Help resolve disputes! 02:33, 26 September 2012 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Criteria for speedy deletion[edit]

Several years ago, I uploaded a photo of myself here for my user page. I have not used it there in over two years, and I don't intend to ever use it again. However, since it is also on my Facebook page, it is an indirect link to my real-world identity, and would like it deleted. However, the criteria for speedy deletion mention an "article" to which a single user was the only notable contributor and that user requests its removal in good faith, but nothing about an "image". Can anyone help me?

I'll tag it for speedy deletion immediately if someone can tell me.

Reply[edit]

You may well be right. Though we may not necessarily be talking about exactly the same type of case, I think the principles of WP:ROPE are probably worth applying here too. If the article is deleted, you might find that the editors in question simply give up and go away. If not, and they start editing disruptively, I can only imagine others will come down on them hard without the need for you to take any action. So let's just give them enough rope to hang themselves if they are determined to do so.

Besides which, given you involvement so far, any first strike-style action in anticipation of what they might do would probably be considered a bit pointy. Regardless of how "accurate" it might be, you'd probably be best leaving it alone for now. Stalwart111 (talk) 00:22, 5 October 2012 (UTC)

Have responded here. elvenscout742 (talk) 00:59, 5 October 2012 (UTC)
Okay, I get what you mean. Yeah - I think you could, but it might just be worth waiting until after consensus has been reached at the AFD. That way you can make your changes with more impunity; citing the community consensus that the links/sources/assertions do not meet WP standards/guidelines. Otherwise you run the risk that your edits look to be pre-empting the closure of that AFD - even if we know in advance what the result is likely to be. On the other hand, you are free to be bold and make the changes in the interests of a better encyclopaedia. The risk you run is that they could be reverted by someone citing the fact that community consensus is still unclear. For what it's worth, my advice would be to wait, let the AFD run its course and then implement the consensus by making the edits, even if it means a bit of questionable material stays in for a few days.

Personal Remarks[edit]

I’ve read your long note on my user talk page, have fairly weighed your words there and have now deleted your comment. Please do not view my personal page as one more platform for pursuing your personal disagreements with me. You’ve found ample space elsewhere to do that. And do feel free, of course, to delete this note in turn. Civility is a two-way street. Tristan noir (talk) 06:00, 22 October 2012 (UTC)

I posted that as a warning that if you continue to make ridiculous personal attacks against me in order to advance your personal agenda on the Wikipedia articles that cover classical Japanese literature, I intend to take my case to the ptb in Wikipedia. It was not a personal attack, but a friendly warning. It would have been inappropriate for me to post such a warning anywhere other than your user page. Please do not view your user talk page as a "personal page" that belongs to you. It is for discussion of Wikipedia content, just as much as anywhere else on this website. elvenscout742 (talk) 06:26, 22 October 2012 (UTC)

Re: More spam[edit]

Sorry it's taken me a few days to get back to you. Re: the AFD; they generally run for 7 days and are then either relisted or closed with a result. Since you posted the note to me there has been a few other comments and a good consensus seems to be building so I would just let it run its course. Has run a few days over but an admin will get to it eventually. Re: the other articles. I think it is very clear (at least it should be to most regular WP editors) that the editor in question has exhibited all the behaviour of someone simply WP:NOTHERE to build WP. Unfortunately, though, I think its time just to give him some WP:ROPE and let some other editors deal with him for a while. Rather than trying to stop every bad edit, maybe just let him go for a bit. Let him spam away for a few days and build evidence against himself. The problem with your being constantly vigilant is that he hasn't been given the chance to really do the damage he clearly wants to do. As a result, other editors assume good faith and defend his right to have all the rope he pleases. I know it might be immidiately contrary to the best interests of WP, but letting him spam away with impunity for a while will show him for what he really is. The alternative is that he will see that his current attitude is blatantly contrary to productive WP editing and he will see the error of his ways and will show some restraint or lose interest in spamming WP with WP:FRINGE rubbish. Let him do his thing and let a couple of admins experience the personal attacks he resorts to when reprimanded for his questionable conduct. He won't last long.

Renku[edit]

Hi Elvenscout. I'm curious as to your thinking regarding this edit to the Renku article. I was inclined to do a partial revert, but thought it might be useful (and more civil) to pick your brains first. I agree with your removal of Lisheanu; and Simply Haiku, though it continues at another url, no longer publishes renku. But why did you remove the Journal of Renga and Renku? It's a substantial print periodical, including heavyweights such as Horton, Drake and so on, and is the only journal in the west devoted to the genre. Several of the items you left in are trivial by comparison. In your summary, you mentioned, "Darlington Richards is expecting to publish a THIRD issue sometime NEXT YEAR". It's an annual publication, so I don't really grasp the relevance of this comment. Thanks for any explanation. --gråb whåt you cån (talk) 12:00, 31 October 2012 (UTC)

Hi, I've copied this conversation to Talk:Renku as it is of relevance to the article and may be of interest to other editors. I've added a further comment, to which I'd appreciate your reaction. --gråb whåt you cån (talk) 20:42, 2 November 2012 (UTC)

closure[edit]

I've never closed an AfD before and probably broke a rule but figured since you withdrew it would save some time to close with a speedy keep. If you want to revert no problem I can undo it. -- Green Cardamom (talk) 06:01, 29 November 2012 (UTC)

Re: TN's behaviour[edit]

Hi, sorry it took me a couple of days to get back to you. Rather than any other route (too many and you'll be accused of forum shopping) I proposed a solution at WP:ANI. I think it has the potential to stop the drama between you and TN and get you both working on some productive editing in totally unrelated areas. You can see my suggestion there.

It will mean you both need to find some other area(s) to contribute if you wish to continue contributing to Wikipedia productively.

Can I strongly suggest that if you are going to respond to my suggestion, you limit your response to a simple indication of acceptance or not and a brief explanation of your position. You have a right of reply (of course) but I would counsel you to limit your reply to an actual reply to my proposal (as opposed to any further criticism of TN). Please do not feel you must accept my proposal because I suggested it or because it is the only one that has been suggested. You need to make your own decision and decide for yourself. But I made it in good faith, in an attempt to get everyone to move on. Cheers, Stalwart111 23:25, 2 December 2012 (UTC)

Move protocol - RM Glossary of literary terms[edit]

Elvenscout742 - Nothing wrong with the move of this article, but you should close the Requested Move discussion with the {{subst:RM top}} and {{subst:RM bottom}} templates so the discussion is removed from the RM summary page. When you don't close the discussion, it will stay in the backlog and it can be confusing to find an open discussion on an article that's already been moved. You can find the complete set of RM closing instructions at: WP:RMCI. Thanks --Mike Cline (talk)

Film titles and a strong request to please read sources, policy documents before editing and request to read what I have written before responding[edit]

Please can you stick to the MOS:FILM conventions for film titles? It's particularly unfortunate that you chose to add this title since it is the English title of a 1980 film based on the play. Is it too much trouble for you to read things or check things before you start editing? It is a lot of work for me to keep on responding when you keep on refusing to read policy documents and refuse to read what I have written in response to you. I politely request you to (a) read what I have written before responding to me (b) read the Wikipedia policy documents before making claims about what they say. Thanks. JoshuSasori (talk) 15:29, 23 December 2012 (UTC)

As I have already posted on your talk page, WP:UE states that we should provide a gloss for foreign terms that are unfamiliar to English-speaking readers. Additionally, MOS:FILM does not mention anything about foreign film titles except to redirect the reader to Wikipedia:NCF#Foreign-language films, which clearly states:
If the film was released in the English-speaking world under its native title, use that throughout the article, but include an English translation in brackets after the first use. Do not put the English title in bold, as this is not an 'official' title. If the native title contains characters not in the Latin alphabet, such as syllabaries or Chinese characters, treat the romanization as the common title and include the native alphabet and any other transliterations.
My edit to the article in question was entirely in line with this guideline. elvenscout742 (talk) 15:37, 23 December 2012 (UTC)

Response to rhetorical edit summary, just because[edit]

I just happened to see your edit summary; I know it was rhetorical but I actually remember the conversation when they were making these pseudo-namespaces (though can't locate it), so I thought I'd swing by anyway. Best memory: Yes it is technically inconsistent, and that was discussed, but it was thought that it was still fairly intuitive and easy to remember with the "W" standing for Wikipedia and "T" for talk, and it's just more efficient over millions of who-knows how-many-repetitions over years to use two letters rather than three.

Re:[[Talk:Tadao Sato]][edit]

I obviously didn't make it clear enough in my response: I had met Sato a couple of times in London last year, and he was fine with the non-macron English spelling of his name. But thanks for suggesting I didn't know what I was talking about. Try be less patronising and offensive next time, please. Additionally, the BFI does NOT have a "general policy not to use macrons" in its range of publications. Each BFI publication has its own style house. Cheers. 0zero9nine (talk) 09:02, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

So you're saying that we should base our article titles on which spelling he said he was "fine with", according to your personal experience, with no verifiable external evidence? Please see WP:OR: Wikipedia's content is determined by previously published information rather than by the personal beliefs or experiences of its editors. We don't go by personal experiences of editors, which would violate WP:V, and even if we took the sources you cited as reliable English sources that favour a certain spelling, then they are still only as good as the old books that he wrote himself that spell his name with the macron -- and when those two contradict each other, we are supposed to default to the macron. Anyway, like I said, I don't intend to formally oppose your vote on the article (I seriously was not able to respond at the time because I was being harassed by one of the other users on your side). I merely wanted to point out that your comment regarding his "letter" was highly misinformed, because it was obviously written in Japanese and then translated by someone else. elvenscout742 (talk) 09:29, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
a) when I say I had already met him, I meant he had a look at our materials, but fine: it's not a good source, which I have already acknowledged elsewhere. And b) I have already pointed out the letter, which you keep putting in quote mark, was translated by someone else. All that said, thank you for giving me the heads up, but let's move on.
