Speedy deletion of St. John's Cathedral, Tapei[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on St. John's Cathedral, Tapei 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 company or corporation, 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, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for companies and corporations.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you. RadioFan (talk) 15:02, 2 May 2009 (UTC)

To Yoshi: I'm not sure what happened here. It looked to me like you made a typo in the article title, so I fixed it, and then nominated the original page (not the new one) for deletion. This seems to have somehow caused RadioFan to not nominate it for deletion as non-notable even though he said he did. I will try to find out what's going on here. In any case, the article is now spelled Taipei, not Tapei. Soap Talk/Contributions 22:06, 2 May 2009 (UTC)
Oh, I see. The notice above refers to a previous deletion of the page. Soap Talk/Contributions 22:08, 2 May 2009 (UTC)

Kobayashi_Issa-Storehouse.jpg[edit]

Hi Yoshi Canopus. Regarding your addition of this photo to the Kobayashi Issa article, would you care to confirm my understanding that the photo is of a storehouse now standing on the site of the one where Issa lived? At such low resolution it's difficult to discern much detail, but this appears to be a modern building. Thanks --Yumegusa (talk) 08:15, 29 August 2009 (UTC)

Dear Yonegusa, thank you for your comment. No, it does not look like a modern building to me. When I took this picture in 1996 or so, there was a signboard there, saying that it was the original storehouse (in Japanese: 土蔵) where Issa lived. In Japan there are frequently earthquakes, so it could have been rebuild a few time to the original form. Have a nice day! -- By Yoshi Canopus (talk) 23:48, 29 August 2009 (UTC) Oh, I forgot to mention that I "stole" this picture from my own home page at Issa's Haiku Home Page. -- By Yoshi Canopus (talk) 23:53, 29 August 2009 (UTC)
Well, If that's what the signboard said, I won't argue. It's a pity you don't have a higher res picture though. --Yumegusa (talk) 00:14, 30 August 2009 (UTC)
The picture was taken more than ten years ago by Kodak DC220 (or digitized from an analog picture, I don't recall well) for my home page, so I edited it further into a smaller size to prevent from taking so much time in downloading the home page. May ask you a question? I now donate my pictures to Wikipedia Commons in 200 KB (kilobytes) or so in size after editing the original pictures (2.5 MB in size) by Photoshop. Do you think I should donate the pictures in original size (high-resolution format), for others to use for whatever purposes? (I don't really care what other purposes they use them for, since I have donated them to the public domain.) -- By Yoshi Canopus (talk) 00:55, 30 August 2009 (UTC)
Without hesitation I would answer, donate them in the highest resolution possible, and let eventual users decide whether to downsize. --Yumegusa (talk) 08:30, 30 August 2009 (UTC)
Thanks. I have started upload my pictures as much as possible in higher resolution. -- By Yoshi Canopus (talk) 01:24, 13 September 2009 (UTC)
Dear Yumegusa, I uploaded a picture of Issa's last warehouse residence in a finer resolution some time ago, FYI. -- By Yoshi Canopus (talk) 02:26, 31 October 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for your recent changes![edit]

Thanks for your recent edits!! - You helped the world today in some way... maybe a little bit, but wrong is doing nothing at all. 189.217.171.135 (talk) 02:09, 31 October 2009 (UTC)

January 2010[edit]

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia. Everyone is welcome to contribute to the encyclopedia, but when you add content (particularly if you change facts and figures), as you have to the article Zhongshan Square (Dalian), please cite a reliable source for the content you're adding or changing. This helps maintain our policy of verifiability. Take a look at Wikipedia:Citing sources for information about how to cite sources and the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you. Eeekster (talk) 05:45, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

Dear Eeekster, thanks for your comments. (You are too quick to make comments!) Sources have been added. -- By Yoshi Canopus (talk) 08:25, 8 January 2010 (UTC)
Relative to this Zhongshan Square (Dalian) page, I created yesterday a larger page: Modern Buildings on Zhongshan Square in Dalian, FYI. -- By Yoshi Canopus (talk) 23:40, 9 January 2010 (UTC)


February 2010[edit]

Information.svg Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. When you make a change to an article, please provide an edit summary, which you forgot to do before saving your recent edit to Pertamina. Doing so helps everyone to understand the intention of your edit. It is also helpful to users reading the edit history of the page. Thank you. Eeekster (talk) 08:48, 9 February 2010 (UTC)

Information.svg Please do not add content without citing verifiable and reliable sources, as you did to Pertamina. Before making any potentially controversial edits, it is recommended that you discuss them first on the article's talk page. Please review the guidelines at Wikipedia:Citing sources and take this opportunity to add references to the article. Thank you. Eeekster (talk) 08:50, 9 February 2010 (UTC)

Dear Eeekster, thanks for your comments again. That was the best I could do, mostly translating from the Japanese version at that time. Please continue your gook work of trying to keep Wikipedia's quality! -- By Yoshi Canopus (talk) 01:47, 13 February 2010 (UTC)

Request for Japanese translation from Dalian public transport[edit]

Hi, I'm a user of chinese Wikipedia, and I've written a lot on Dalian public transport (bus, tramway, light rail, etc.). But I can't write in Japanese, and I've found the entries in Japanese Wikipedia in strong need of correction. Then could you help to update them? Many thanks! ありがどう! Unsonique (talk) 22:59, 12 February 2010 (UTC)

BTW, you can contact me on Chinese Wikipedia if necessary (cuz I dunno how to link the talk page here :P) sorry)

Dear Usonique, thanks for your invitation. I have noticed someone (without login) is constantly updating the details of Dalian's transportation area (in Japanese). I am now more interested in making new Japanese pages for transportation of Russia, USA and India. So, it will take some time to get myself interested in Liaoning's or Dalian's transportation. -- By Yoshi Canopus (talk) 01:47, 13 February 2010 (UTC)
It doesn't matter. Or could someone else be invited? -Unsonique (talk) 20:26, 14 February 2010 (UTC)
Please don't be shy and just ask me for Japanese translation or final editing. I myself need your help in Chinese translation. Did you or your group do the Chinese translation of the "Dalian" page from the Japanese page? That was fantastic! -- By Yoshi Canopus (talk) 03:11, 15 February 2010 (UTC)
Do the Chinese translation of the "Dalian" page from the Japanese page? Sorry, but I'm not quite clear about that. I haven't read that page of the Japanese yet. --Unsonique (talk) 12:43, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

Caesar Flaischlen[edit]

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Caesar Flaischlen, and it appears to include a substantial copy of http://colecizj.easyvserver.com/pgflahab.htm.

This message was placed automatically, and it is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists.

I believe that the copywright of Cäsar Flaischlen's "Hab' Sonne im Herzen" poem has already expired. Let me know if it has not expired. -- By Yoshi Canopus (talk) 08:06, 2 July 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Dalian Hi-Think Computer Technology[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Dalian Hi-Think Computer Technology 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 an organization or company, 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.

Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for organizations and companies. You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles - see the Article Wizard.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag - if no such tag exists then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hangon tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

This speedy deletion over this weekend is a mistake. See my recent upload: Dalian Hi-Think Computer (DHC) -- By Yoshi Canopus (talk) 08:35, 5 July 2010 (UTC)

Verifiability[edit]

Please read and understand Wikipedia's policies on verifiability. A review of your edit history shows that you have added a great amount of unreferenced material to Wikipedia, including entire articles that were created without any valid sources, such as:

In addition, many of your edits to existing articles include addition of unsourced material. Other editors have communicated with you about this, but the pattern does not seem to be changing. While it would be preferable that the source cited be in English, this is not required. If the material you are creating can be referenced to Japanese sources, that's fine, just please provide the references. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 12:56, 14 July 2010 (UTC)

Dear WikiDan61, thanks for contacting me on this subject. No, no one has ever contacted me on this concern. It is indeed a concern to all of us. Let me take take a look at the recent articles that I contributed, especially those four items which you have cited above. Thanks again, and please keep trying!

서왕모[edit]

Are you sure Wang Mu Niangniang is a stranger in Korea? Google searching "서왕모" produces 77k hits. But I do not have any expertise in this matter. Yoshi Canopus (talk) 09:48, 21 February 2013 (UTC)

About Baidu Baike (Baidu Encyclopedia)[edit]

Thanks for you editing on Chinese stuff, but please notice Baidu Baike(Baidu Encyclopedia)is not the Identifying reliable sources and not acceptable to be used as reference. I'm trying to find all of them on enwp, please help me if you can.--Yoshi Canopus (talk) 09:48, 21 February 2013 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by AddisWang (talkcontribs) 03:00, 5 December 2012 (UTC)

AddisWang, while I understand part of the reason why you are in the midst of a holy crusade against Baidu Encyclopedia, I cannot not find any other good online encyclopedia on thins Chinese other than this one. - Yoshi Canopus (talk) 13:26, 5 September 2013 (UTC)

Doraji (folk song)[edit]

Hello, thanks for creating this article. It's been tagged for notability for 4 years now, as not meeting WP:NSONGS. Could you please look it over and see if you can help improve it? Best wishes, Boleyn (talk) 18:43, 20 February 2013 (UTC)

Dear Boleyn, thanks for calling my attention on this subject. My knowledge of the Korean culture is very limited and that was the best I could contribute. Yoshi Canopus (talk) 09:48, 21 February 2013 (UTC)

Poe divination[edit]

Hi, FYI I made this revert because the See also section is only for general divination concepts. Methods of divination includes a long list of various methods and is the correct place to add it. HelenOnline 07:25, 9 January 2014 (UTC)

Thanks, Helen, for pointing to the right place, Methods of divination#P. I've just added Poe divination there. Yoshi Canopus (talk) 21:06, 11 January 2014 (UTC)

Church of St. John the Baptist (Ein Karem, Jerusalem)[edit]

  • Could we please be a little more careful in doing new articles. There were broken brackets, non-standard characters (Asian parenthesis and a circle after a ref), and a confusing ref. I'm assuming Israel & the Palestinian Territories was a book, because there were videos, pdf documents and web pages with all the same name. Book titles go in italics and if an ISBN is available (it is for all new books), add an ISBN. Bgwhite (talk) 21:02, 27 June 2014 (UTC)
  • I just removed your: "Please write your comments in the above space. I usually do not respond here to the messages left..." message. This interfered with editors clicking on the "New section" to add a message. Also interfered with bots leaving a message. New editors often don't know about signatures or forget. There are alot of good editor who only use an IP address. So, saying you won't respond to these editors might not be a good idea.
  • I looked at your last new article, Mount Mikami. It had a blog for a ref, which is unreliable and should not be added. It is "External links" and not "External Links". There was a red link under the "See also" section, which is useless. Bgwhite (talk) 21:06, 27 June 2014 (UTC)
Thanks, Bgwhite, for your good advice and comments. Your advice well taken! I just saw today your message and the last several "avoid link to the disambiguation page" messages which appeared in my Wikipedia User page. By Yoshi Canopus (talk) 00:31, 28 June 2014 (UTC)
