Welcome to Wikipedia. Here is some general information you may find useful: click here
- Be Bold with your edits but also be moderate, check out the policy on NPOV, or neutral point of view and remember to cite your sources. Proper Wikiquette suggests it is a good idea to make a suggestion first on the discussion page of a controversial article before making substantial edits, if you wish to avoid an edit war. We do not own the material we contribute, so be prepared to have your entries edited mercilessly— the thought "but it's my article" should never cross your mind.
- You can find help with editing at How to edit a page including how to do special characters and formatting, and the Manual of Style is also strongly recommended.
- When most of us start working on Wikipedia or its sister projects we think of them mainly as information resources, but Wikipedia is also an international community. It is a way for us to share and collaborate as we work towards the elusive goal of consensus. Check out the Community portal at the left of any page to find many opportunities to work together.
You should sign your entries on Talk (discussion) pages with four tildes link this:~~~~, and you can indent your entry in a discussion thread by putting a colon (:) or several (:::) as needed in the left-hand margin. If you put a space as the first character on a line that line will remain unformatted (not recommended).
Happy Editing. --Blainster 10:07, 31 May 2005 (UTC)
Quite surprised to come across you here. (I'm a happy user of your MS-DOS 7.10 :-)
As a person who is both Chinese and well-versed in history of Windows, could you please provide some background on Windows 3.2? I believe it deserves more than just one sentence, but couldn't find any relevant details. --tyomitch 15:14, 11 October 2005 (UTC)
Btw have you tried the "official workaround" on Windows 2000? :-) If you have access to Windows 2000 in a VM or real machine, can you please try that? : ) Does it install after installing GDI+ or is there an "XP required" enforcement in the MSI file? - xpclient Talk 11:08, 12 June 2008 (UTC)
- Yes, that's why I haven't reverted. I'm asked merely so that our contributions remain 100% accurate and confirmed. :-) - xpclient Talk 18:47, 12 June 2008 (UTC)
What made you think that they are tributes? The article clearly stated "Burmese thought Qing sought peace and Qing thought Burmese sent tributes to them". It's simple. Because Qianlong thought they were tributes doesn't necessary mean they are tributes. In fact, what you are considering tributes are not tributes, they are presents. A country pays something to other country doesn't necessary mean tributes. Beijing replied Burma with some presents as Burmese chronicles records. Shouldn't it be considered as Beijing pay tributes to Burma?
the Gengma native official earned Beijing's praise for facilitating the submission of Burma. The page clearly stated subterfuge used by Gengma official. Yes, that caused Beijing to think Burmese submitted to them while Burmese were replying conciliatory attitudes by Qianlong. This is just misunderstanding by Qianlong. He himself, interpreted them as victories. That all. Simply, my friend gave me a pencil as a friendly remark. I considered as a tribute, I can, but nobody is going to accept this reasoning. Same goes to Qianlong.
Anyway, what Qianlong interpret doesn't matter. What the matter is whether Burma submitted to China. Clearly they didn't. And the Sawbwa ruse didn't make them submit It just fake Qianlong to think that Burmese submitted while it fake Burma to think that Qianlong want peace. They faked both parties. I deleted the Invasion of Burma at Qing dynasty talk page. I think it doesn't relate to the article. I am discussing about Sino–Burmese Wars (1765–1769) Soewinhan (talk) 12:57, 12 December 2010 (UTC)
- Thanks for the detailed message. Replied in your talk page. --Wengier (talk) 23:31, 12 December 2010 (UTC)
- Don't worry about it. It's possible for anyone to violate certain wiki rules sometimes due to certain reason, especially for newcomers. But it will be no problem at long as he is good-faithed and willing to do it better in the future when he finds it. The important thing is to have mutual understanding, then everything will be fine. Thanks again. --Wengier (talk) 07:06, 3 November 2011 (UTC)
