Xie Jinyuan's posthumous rank[edit]

You revert my edit on his rank of being a lieutenant general instead of a brigadier general. The reason I edited it was that I was reading the Defense of Sihang Warehouse article and it stated him as a lieutenant general and I was not able to find any conclusive information supporting either, yet the defense article was a featured article. So I took the assumption that it was correct, so I'm curious on which is correct? -Davis Lee 02:46, 27 October 2006 (UTC)

Re: I tried finding the Happy Happy Man...[edit]

Last time I went to Chinatown about a month and a half ago (on a Saturday) he was at the intersection of Grant and Washington. I believe that is the same location at which User:Allentchang took the photo that is on my userpage. I don't go to Chinatown often enough to be able to trace his movements, so I'm not sure if he hangs out at other places, but he's not always there. On some weekdays, he hangs out at Berkeley, at the edge of the UC campus between Sproul Plaza and Telegraph Avenue. He was there almost everyday at the beginning of September, but I haven't seen him since. So who knows? --Jiang 06:47, 28 October 2006 (UTC)

Probably because that guy pushed him off his podium and stepped on his sign, eh? He also sometimes hangs out at Stanford. The Daily Cal had an interesting article about him. --Xiaopo (Talk) 20:00, 30 October 2006 (UTC)
No, I saw him a few times after that incident (including the last time at Chinatown)...holding the same "Israel = Terrorist No. 1" sign.--Jiang 22:46, 30 October 2006 (UTC)
Someone pushed him and stepped on his signs??!! *shocked* Who could be so cruel! :p -- Миборовский 00:14, 31 October 2006 (UTC)

Template talk:Campaignbox Chinese Civil War[edit]

I just noticed the talk page today. I replied to it, and please correct me if I'm wrong. AQu01rius (User | Talk | Websites)  17:05, 28 October 2006 (UTC)

Hey mib can you lock the sihang article or something? It's been vandalized and Raul apparently doesn't like to do the logical thing and protect the FA on the mainpage. BlueShirts 20:22, 30 October 2006 (UTC)

Well it's off the mainpage now so there shouldn't be any vandalism after this. -- Миборовский 00:10, 31 October 2006 (UTC)

November Esperanza Newsletter[edit]

Program Feature: Admin Coaching (needs coaches!)
Admin Coaching needs coaches!!! If you are an administrator, or even a generally experienced user, do consider signing up to be a coach.

Admin Coaching, now being coordinated by HighwayCello, is a program for people who want help learning some of the more subtle aspects of Wikipedia policy and culture. People are matched with experienced users who are willing to offer coaching. The program is designed for people who have figured out the basics of editing articles; they're not newcomers any more, but they might want some help in learning new roles. In this way, Esperanza would help keep hope alive for Wikipedia because we would always be grooming the next generation of admins.

What's New?
The Tutorial Drive is a new Esperanza program! In an effort to make complicated processes on Wikipedia easier for everyone, Esperanza working to create and compile a list of tutorials about processes here on Wikipedia. Consider writing one!
A discussion on how Esperanza relates to the encyclopedia has been started; please add your thoughts.
Many thanks to MiszaBot, courtesy of Misza13, for delivering the newsletter.
  • The list of proposed programs has been updated, with some proposals being archived.
  • There is now a new program: the Tutorial Drive! Consider writing a tutorial on something you are good at doing on Wikipedia.
  • The suggestion of adding a cohesive look to all the Esperanza pages is being considered; join the discussion if you are interested!
  • In order to make a useful interlanguage welcome template, those involved in translation projects will be asked what English Wikipedia policies are most important and confusing to editors coming from other language Wikipedias.
  • A discussion of Esperanza's role in Wikipedia is being held, with all thoughts of all Esperanzians wanted!
  • Shreshth91 informed everyone that he will be leaving the Esperanza council as life is rather busy; his spot will be filled by the runner up from the last election, HighwayCello.
Signed...

Falun Gong mediation[edit]

Hello, I'm sorry it's been awhile, but I recently agreed to mediate that case. I don't know if it's a stale issue, so it would be good if a few of you let me know whether or not mediation is still needed. Since there are so many of you, I'm going to assume that all of you agree to me mediating until and unless I am told otherwise. I'm also going to assume public mediation is fine, unless someone asks for private mediation, or I come to think private mediation might be better. I would, however, appreciate it if you just said something there to let me know if you are still around. Also, assuming you are still interested in mediation, please watchlist the page if you haven't already. Thanks! Armedblowfish (talk|mail) 02:57, 7 November 2006 (UTC)

Could you help[edit]

Tomananda is unfairly blocked. He exhausted his 3 reverts on this page but he did not violate the 3RR rule. I contacted the admin that blocked him the following is his response. What is more unfair is that Olaf Stephanos who had just as many reverts on that page was not blocked. Could you help unblock Tomananda?

3RR is not an entitlement to 3 reverts. Edit warring is prohibited. Also, the threshhold for information on Wikipedia is not truth, but verifiability; Wikipedia is not the place to reveal "the truth" except through reliable sources. Please also read Wikipedia:Resolving disputes. —Centrxtalk • 07:26, 13 November 2006 (UTC)
Replied on Centrx's user talk. -- Миборовский 23:19, 13 November 2006 (UTC)

Hi, Do you know how long is the block on Tomanada? Could you unblock him? thanks--Yueyuen 06:05, 14 November 2006 (UTC)

24 hours, if the block log doesn't lie. -- Миборовский 06:33, 14 November 2006 (UTC)
He was blocked at about 6pm yesterday, but as of 10:50 pm today he is still blocked. Could you unblock him? --Yueyuen 06:51, 14 November 2006 (UTC)
He doesn't show up in the active block list. If he still can't edit, there's nothing I can do. He'll probably have to take it to someone with more system privileges. -- Миборовский 07:00, 14 November 2006 (UTC)

Chinese inventing the crossbow[edit]

Hi Mibo

Somehow pro-Chinese editors have a tendency to insert unsourced material about the invention of the crossbow in China or create a pseudocitation from Needhams comment about South-East Asia.(Seems very hard that something possibly wasn't invented in China) On the other hand nobody seems to care at all what exactly was invented or done in China as long as the article says done first in China. Could you help us perhaps to sort out what the Chinese evidence for the early appearance of crossbows is and much more important how did these systems work 8bornze triggers?, bone triggers? arrow poison? bamboo bows?). The multiple prod crossbow is for example one of the greatest inventions on the crossbow, but none cares about it, only first, first, first. Greatings Wandalstouring 19:29, 7 January 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned fair use image (Image:Order of Sublime Commencement.jpg)[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Order of Sublime Commencement.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. 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 under fair use (see our fair use policy).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. 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 not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you.

'free edits'[edit]

Hi Mibo,

I have been thinking about possibilities of helping users in countries where only proxies are possible to contribute to wikipedia: Wikipedia talk:No open proxies

My idea is to create a possibility (like a talk page), perhaps not as part of wikipedia, where you can edit using a proxy (with edit restrictions to make it difficult for vandals, for example need login and it takes some time until you are switched free to edit) and this information can be used to improve wikipedia (information needs verifiable sources, etc.). It would be a good thing if we could link specific information directly to the talk pages of respective articles and vice versa, possibly via a wikiproject against censorship or the like (It would only be a bibliography help, nothing today's projects don't do). I thought about you, because I lack the resources for realizing the plan and you might have better connections or ideas. Wandalstouring 11:51, 26 February 2007 (UTC)

Chinese -> English[edit]

Hi. I was wondering if you could translate two Chinese sentenses. One you can find at IMPawards, it's the tag line from Hostel (film). The other one is a title for a Icelandic/Hong Kong movie called Maður eins og ég. Actualy I know it's "Man like me, woman like you" in chinese, but could you write the title first in Chinese caracters and then again the pronouncation. I tried myself here but I'm sure it has some mistakes. Yea, with the tag line the same three things, translation, english pronouncation and Chinese caracters. Hope you can help. Thanks --Steinninn 03:25, 20 March 2007 (UTC)

That is the funnyest thing I have heard in a long time. I love Eli Roth, so personaly I woun't submite the translation :) But about the movie title. Since imdb dose not support japanese caracters I wanted to submite it with english alphabet. It has already been done with a number of titles, like Ying xiong for Hero. Are there any rules how to change the caracters into alphabet? Would Wo jer yang de nan ren, ni jer yang de nü ren be correct? Maybe it's complicated? Again, I think the hostel poster is so funny, and thanks for the quick reply. --Steinninn 06:06, 20 March 2007 (UTC)
Alright, that's awsome. But if you look at the movie title and what you wrote, you can see that everything looks exactly the same, exept the "zhe". The upper one is missing one short line on the top left corner. Maybe not a big deal. But the lower one is completely different. The original one was 那 and looks very similar. Wich one is the correct one? And do I nead to find a nother one with two small lines for the upper zhe? Again, thanks for the help. --Steinninn 15:38, 21 March 2007 (UTC)
Oh, alright, I kind of thought so. One more question, and I think it's going to be the last one. Are these bouth Mandarin, or or maybe Cantonese. Maybe one of them is Cantonese and the other is Mandarin. Again, I'm not familiar with Chinese, so I'm not even sure if you can see the differences simply with the caracteres? --Steinninn 01:08, 22 March 2007 (UTC)

Ranks of the People's Liberation Army[edit]

Hi. There's a dispute currently happening on this page. A user added in rank information about two supposed older ranks, the PLA's Marshall and Grand Marshal equivalents. An admin is convinced that the person adding is a sockpuppet and had him banned and reverted. From seeing the edits, and from seeing a source the admin provided, the edits seem legitimate, but I'm not very familiar with the PLA, myself. Since you're in the History wikiproject, you might know a bit more about it and be in a position to comment and hopefully help settle the dispute. --Yuje 11:58, 30 March 2007 (UTC)

Sorry, I misunderstood what I read. You're asking me to sit and write 60+ paragraphs of information to describe the Images, erm.. no. I don't own the article, nor am I responsible for content in the article, I'm not saying I can't try to improve an article, but asking me to create a article off the top of my head when I have no knowledge of such a topic like this is a little pushy. You seem interested in the topic, and probably know more about than I do, what don't you try to fix it? — Moe ε 01:20, 7 June 2007 (UTC)
Sorry, but your threats won't work. Readd the Images as suggested "how to fix it", then you could result in being blocked. I didn't arbitrarily do anything, I am enforcing our fair use policy, if you don't like it, don't violate it. I haven't removed text, or content if you will, I removed Images. Images which were not being used properly in accordance with our Fair Use policy. No, I'm not going do all editors dirty work, and if that means that the Images are not replaced with text, so be it. If I get around to it, I'll start it, but don't go ordering around people. And if isn't broken, I'm not fixing itas well. — Moe ε 01:53, 7 June 2007 (UTC)
Request intervention if you don' think it's removal was correct. — Moe ε 03:11, 7 June 2007 (UTC)
Yes, I need some breathing room. I have been editing for the past 4 days straight or so and I have a massive headache. Can we talk about some other time please? — Moe ε 03:53, 7 June 2007 (UTC)
It's not an excuse, and I'm not trying to end the conversation, I'm trying to get over another dispute on Wikipedia without starting up another with you and I won't be able to focus on our dispute if I don't have a little room to work. My actions still stand and I have already explained policy, but I won't be able to conduct myself in a more professional manner if I'm being pressured into doing something. So it's either you give me my space until I'm able to work with you, or we won't be able to work together at all. — Moe ε 04:06, 7 June 2007 (UTC)
Calling me rude doesn't make me less rude, and you're not making you're position stronger by calling me so, so please stop. Thier so-called "death in seven days" also known as deletion, is not irreversible, don't panic. Those Images can be restored at any time by an admin if they were deleted, or they can be re-uploaded alternatively. It's not an arbitrary decision when policy says that the move is correct. More now than ever, Wikipedia is careful about rationales and Fair Use tagging than ever and the enforcement of the policy. Theres no reason to have a sense of urgency when everything you need is right in front of you, even if it is tagged. — Moe ε 04:45, 7 June 2007 (UTC)
And you're an admin?? It's not that hard to upload and Image, tag it and provide a rationale if it's Fair Use. And you're an admin, you can see the past revisions of Images to see what the Images looked like to begin with. All that this looks like is that you don't want to be bothered with work to do, and I'm sorry to have so much tagged for deletion in a single swoop, but you're lack of wanting to edit isn't my problem. What is you're interpretation of the Fair Use policy, pretty Images for decoration all over the place?? It's damn-well established from with community that gallery-style formatting regarding Fair Use images is prohibited. There needs to be a body of text next to Fair Use images, not just Image after Image saying: "this is a medal for honor" and a Image of 7 of them next to it. There needs to be minimal usage of Fair Use images as possible and 60+ is not acceptable. — Moe ε 05:09, 7 June 2007 (UTC)
How many discographies do you see left on Wikipedia that use the old format with album covers? It would be safe to say that you couldn't find many. Those formats had chart standings, positions, titles, record labels and everything next to them and they were removed per our Fair Use policy. Let me show you: The Rolling Stones discography, one very popular band, no? Before and after. And they had only 1 Image per album and they were used to "describe the album". What makes that any different than the article your defending now? There isn't, and it's safe to say I would allow the discographies more than I would allow this. — Moe ε 05:50, 7 June 2007 (UTC)
That isn't my only example of the discographies, just take a look around Wikipedia if you want more fun. Regardless of intended use of copyright infrigment or the such, the Fair Use policy doesn't budge for what could be, but for what they are on Wikipedia. When they are used under Fair Use, they are presumed to meet the policy, all 10 of the standards, not 8 or 9 of them. And the medals, exactly formatted like everything else being removed, should go if that's the amount of text provided and your idea of minimal use is 60 or so. — Moe ε 06:12, 7 June 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image (Image:Order of Precious Tripod with Special Grand Cordon.jpg)[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Order of Precious Tripod with Special Grand Cordon.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. 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).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. 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 non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BetacommandBot 05:43, 21 June 2007 (UTC)

RfC on Nanking Massacre[edit]

I'm not sure how active you want to be on WP recently, but since you participated in the last discussion, I thought I'd point out to you that an RfC has been requested at Nanking Massacre concerning whether or not to include the article in the category "Genocide". If you have an opinion on the matter, please comment. Hong Qi Gong (Talk - Contribs) 20:05, 26 July 2007 (UTC)

Song Dynasty military[edit]

Actually, there's a whole lot of information on the Song Dynasty military in the Society of the Song Dynasty article. I just thought the Society section of the main Song Dynasty article was getting too large for me to fit it in. But, if you insist, I'll write a short paragraph for it in the Society section of the main article.--Pericles of AthensTalk 13:59, 17 August 2007 (UTC)

Here is my most recent response to yours in the Song Dynasty FAC page:

Well, the reason why it is under the "Society" section is because all of the information about the military is found in the Society of the Song Dynasty article, which is summarized here in the "Society" section for the main Song Dynasty article. I am just following wiki standards of having a main article that is summarized in a section of another article. In summarizing the military info in this article section, it allows the reader to know which main article to look at if they want to know more about a given topic, such as looking in Society of the Song Dynasty for more information on the Song military. For what I am supporting, see Wikipedia:Guide to layout, Wikipedia:Guide to writing better articles, Wikipedia:Summary style. Plus, the information on the military represents only one paragraph in this article here (albeit a large one), which hardly warrants an entire section (let alone having all its information already placed in a listed sub-article). The architecture section at least has two large paragraphs.

In essence, if I created an entirely new military section, it would be going against wikipedia guidelines since all of the information about the military is being summarized in a section for a Song Dynasty sub-article, one that already has all the information about the military. If I was to take all the information about the military out of the Society of the Song Dynasty artilce and place it all in a section for the Song Dynasty article instead, that would be grounds for the GA reviewer of the Society of the Song Dynasty article to have it delisted from GA status, since that was one of the requirements for passing it. See Talk:Society of the Song Dynasty, for what I am saying.--Pericles of AthensTalk 17:51, 17 August 2007 (UTC)

Nevermind! Wiki member Mattisse and I have fixed the problem by creating new sub-headings and a new over-heading. The military now has its own sub-section under society, not culture, which makes no sense.--Pericles of AthensTalk 18:30, 17 August 2007 (UTC)

I have the movie and I have watched it, and nowhere does it indicate anything that your edits are suggesting. You need to back your edit up with valid, verifiable sources, which self-published youtube videos are NOT. -- Миборовский 06:04, 18 August 2007 (UTC)
You say a lie. There is no meaning that you mentioned. --Hare-Yukai 07:45, 18 August 2007 (UTC)
