Hi LordAmeth, someone deleted (here) something you added way back in 2006, and which had survived up until now. A discussion about this is on the talk page. Because it had a reference (Dunn, C. and B. Torigoe (1969). The Actors Analects. New York: Columbia University Press. p51.) which I couldn't verify (I don't have a copy of the book), I hesitate in reinstating it. I think the deleting editor probably just didn't want to read such things; but if true, the facts should be there regardless. Best wishes, Hamamelis (talk) 08:34, 25 February 2013 (UTC)
Hi Hamamelis. Thanks for letting me know - I don't keep an eye on my watchlist any more, so I appreciate it.
Hm. Well, all I have is this one citation, so I don't know whether it's true or not. But, I trust Torigoe to know what he's talking about, and these guys haven't provided a counter-citation, so, I'm going to re-add it. LordAmeth (talk) 17:35, 25 February 2013 (UTC)
My thanks for letting me know about this merge discussion, and for noting my past contributions and inviting my input. I have not recently been nearly as active as I once was, however, and so will sit out this one. Based on what I see being debated, I think whatever outcome is probably fine with me. Best of luck, however, for your own efforts! Cheers, LordAmeth (talk) 05:49, 18 April 2013 (UTC)
Hello, LordAmeth. Jōmyō-ji, a DAB page you created in 2006, has been nominated for speedy deletion by User:Me and. I (and apparently other editors as well) can find no evidence that Jōmyō-ji (Kyoto) is notable, and there is currently no mention of it on Wikipedia. Cnilep (talk) 00:55, 23 April 2013 (UTC)
Hi! Thanks so much for taking the time to write me here. I'm not nearly as active on Wikipedia as I used to be, and don't really watch my watchlist, so getting messages on my Talk page is wonderful. Genuinely appreciated. I'd created that disambig in order to sort of leave it open that someone (possibly myself) might come by at some point and create the Jômyô-ji (Kyoto) article. Wikipedia is never complete - there should always be redlinks, and there should always be people gradually, slowly, working to turn them blue. That's my feeling.
In any case, don't worry about the redirect / speedy deletion. It's not a big deal. I've added Jômyô-ji to the Requested articles:Japan list, and hopefully someone might come along and write them in. The Japanese Wikipedia has articles for temples by that name in Nôtô, Nagoya, and Arita, and red-links for temples by that name in Hiratsuka and Osaka. I have no doubt that all of them are notable in one way or another.
As for the Kyoto one, as the Japanese Wikipedia disambig page (ja:浄妙寺) explains, the former site of the Kyoto Jômyô-ji, also known as Uji-no-misasagi (or "Uji Mausoleum"), is the site of the graves of many members of the Hokke branch of the Fujiwara family. It was built by Fujiwara no Michinaga to serve as a family temple, but was destroyed in the late medieval period. Empresses or Imperial consorts of Hokke Fujiwara lineage are also buried there. So, it seems a pretty significant site to me. LordAmeth (talk) 03:56, 23 April 2013 (UTC)
Hi LordAmeth! I'm the Wikipedian In Residence at the World Digital Library, a project of the Library of Congress and UNESCO.

Participants can earn our awesome WDL barnstar and help to disseminate free knowledge from over 100 libraries in 7 different languages. Multilingual editing encouraged!!! But being multilingual is not a necessity to make this project a success. Please sign up to participate here. Thanks for editing Wikipedia and I look forward to working with you! 20:08, 24 May 2013 (UTC)
Help in maintaining NPOV on historical Pacific War aviator
Hi LordAmeth. Because you listed "Japanese history" as an area of interest on the WikiProject Military history page and also have a high degree of understanding of Japan, I thought you might be able to lend some help.
I'm looking for some third parties to review a problem editor who (in my opinion) continues to violate the NPOV policy of Wikipedia on the page of a Pacific War aviator, Mitsuo Fuchida. After exhausting myself trying to maintain accurate content in the "Controversy" section, I'm asking for a page ban for this user. If you have time and motivation, I'd really appreciate your consideration to review this issue. The Noticeboard Request is to be found here:  I hate to take anyone's time, but this problem is why many won't trust Wikipedia. Thanks for your consideration.--TMartinBennett (talk) 19:28, 10 July 2013 (UTC)
Hello. At least some of the Five elements article appears to have been copied verbatim from one of the listed external links. I see from the edit history that this goes all the way back to the article's origin in 2005, and that you were the original author. If you can remember that far back, could you comment on the talk page and perhaps help clean it up?--Wikimedes (talk) 08:40, 31 July 2013 (UTC)
Hi LordAmeth, just to let you know that I will be contributing to the article you started on Japanese Minka. I've been reading a good book by the architectural historian Teiji Itoh and I'm hoping to refer to some of that detail. Regards Kenchikuben (talk) 17:24, 10 November 2013 (UTC)
Cool. Have fun with it. Best, LordAmeth (talk) 01:46, 17 November 2013 (UTC)
