The "awful" truth about Dioscorea opposita[edit]

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)

Merge discussion for Opium Wars[edit]

Hi. There has been a reopened discussion ongoing at Talk:First Opium War#Merge discussion to merge the contents of Opium Wars into First Opium War and Second Opium War. A consensus seems to have been reached among all the users who contributed to the lede/Opium Wars#Overview section, and merging may be imminent. You have been identified as a major contributor of the article about to be abolished (see: User:Kiyoweap/Opium Wars) and thus are welcomed to participate in the merge, especially in the sections which you have contributed. Or, any other input under the Merge discussion thread given above would be appreciated. Thanks. --Kiyoweap (talk) 04:57, 18 April 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)

Jōmyō-ji[edit]

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)

Help in maintaining NPOV on historical Pacific War aviator[edit]

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: [1] 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)

Five elements (Japanese philosophy)[edit]

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)

Minka[edit]

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)

File:Tamasaburo5Kodo.jpg[edit]

Dear LordAmeth, I have managed to get a free (CC-BY-SA) photo of Bando Tamasaburo V in another performance (Nihonbashi play instead of Kodo show), so I'll probably have to nominate your FairUse image for deletion, unless you find another fair use for it. Thank you for understanding. Tatewaki (talk) 03:30, 30 August 2014 (UTC)

Sounds good. I'm glad we have something to replace it with. And thanks for letting me know :) LordAmeth (talk) 01:20, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Tamasaburo5Kodo.jpg[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Tamasaburo5Kodo.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 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. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 10:57, 2 September 2014 (UTC)

English-Japanese Translation[edit]

Greetings LordAmeth! I'm searching for multilingual editors who have the time and the interest to collaborate on the AIG business page? The Japanese version looks like it could use some help on content and formatting. Would you be interested? Regards! MsGingerHoneycutt (talk) 16:05, 26 September 2014 (UTC)

Hi! Thanks for thinking of me! However, I'm afraid I don't think I'll be able to help out. My Japanese may be good enough for reading and translating into English, but not for fine-tuned editing /in/ Japanese; I'm also not in any way an expert on business matters and terminology. But, best of luck with the project! LordAmeth (talk) 16:33, 26 September 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the reply! Best Regards, MsGingerHoneycutt (talk) 16:39, 26 September 2014 (UTC)
