Anti-Corruption[edit]

Hi, Zanhe, I am not sure how interested you are in this, but I have began the draft for an article on Xi Jinping's anti-corruption campaign and I wanted to ask you to take a look and give any comments or advice you might have. Thank you!
By the way I've seen the discussion at Lhasa, I really sympathize with your point of view. Let's see how it goes. Colipon+(Talk) 19:22, 6 March 2015 (UTC)

@Colipon: That's a very nice and comprehensive article indeed! A bit more referencing and it can be nominated for GA, IMO. I'm only familiar with a few individual cases, and far less knowledgeable with the overall campaign than you are. So I probably won't be of much help (not that it's needed anyway). As for the Lhasa saga, the discussion is getting a bit too heated for my taste (and I've been too busy lately to get more involved). Although I disagree with Aymatth2, he has doubtless done lots of useful work on the subject, and I won't be too distressed if he prevails in the end. -Zanhe (talk) 02:42, 8 March 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for fixing the stubbornly non opening link[edit]

....in Maria Radner 's references here.

I had no idea what to do, whom to ask! If you hadn't done the DYK review, I never would have learnt.

So one just cuts out areas of the code that is in square brackets? the [tt_news][backPid]

Do you know why the music school code did it that way in the first place? are these placeholders to remind the webadministartor/programmer whatever, to change them when they migrate the news to an archive on their webpage?--Wuerzele (talk) 19:51, 26 March 2015 (UTC)

Wuerzele, I think the problem is that the square brackets in the url conflict with the Wikipedia syntax. I use Google Chrome, which automatically encodes the brackets when I copy-and-paste the url. I have no idea why the school uses brackets in their urls. -Zanhe (talk) 20:25, 26 March 2015 (UTC)

Sun Duoci

Sun Duoci

  • ... that art Professor Xu Beihong painted his student Sun Duoci (see painting), whom he regarded as a "painter of genius"?
  • ALT1:... have a go?
  • Reviewed: Dyslexia

Created by Victuallers (talk) and Zanhe. Self-nominated at 22:10, 2 April 2015 (UTC).

  • Symbol confirmed.svg GTG. 3539 char, nominated on the day of creation. Neutrally written, no POV, in-line citations. Do not appear to be copyvios. Painting is on Commons, citation shows painting creation 1920-1940 and death date of artist 1953. Public domain in China is 50 years per citation, thus appears to be free use by both dates. Hook is well under 200 chars and verified by cited source. URL source of the painting confirms that the painting itself was the work of Xu Beihong. Verified QPQ done by Zanhe. Enjoyed learning about them. Thanks! SusunW (talk) 02:34, 17 April 2015 (UTC)

@Victuallers: Thanks for generously crediting me in your nominations. I don't think I've done enough work (yet) on those two to deserve DYK credit. But I'll try my best to improve them. Cheers! -Zanhe (talk) 19:39, 3 April 2015 (UTC)
Oh don't worry, I'm happy to share anyway ... and if you have time to polish the rougher edges then that would be great. I'm particularly stuck with Jiang's later life as we could do with more about her later affair. Cheers Victuallers (talk) 19:46, 3 April 2015 (UTC)
S thanks for the improved quality. In your opinion did Jiang marry the first guy she was betrothed to? The bio source says that she broke a "marriage agreement". Do you think this was an agreement to get married or a marriage contract? This is important as our hook says "husband" and maybe it should say fiance? What d'y'think? Victuallers (talk) 21:35, 10 April 2015 (UTC)
Victuallers, I don't think she should be considered to be the wife of the first guy. She was promised as a future bride to the Zha family when she was a child (a common practice in pre-Communist China), but the sources are clear that they never officially wed, as she eloped with Xu Beihong before she was taken to the Zha family. I think it's better to change the hook to say fiance. -Zanhe (talk) 21:53, 10 April 2015 (UTC)

James Whitford Bashford[edit]

Hi Zanhe -- thanks again for all your help and attention. I apologise that I did a "hit and run" job at James Whitford Bashford, only adding some basic references without using them to make a respectable article. So I wonder if it wouldn't be better to leave the "stub" tag in order to keep it on the "stub" lists and (perhaps!) attract someone with more time or knowledge. The article is certainly short enough to deserve the stub tag and doesn't mention major parts of his life, his presidency of Ohio Wesleyan and the mission work in China. Cheers in any case, ch (talk) 19:15, 10 April 2015 (UTC)

@CWH: feel free to restore the stub tag if you think it's better that way. I find the stub tags distracting and add clutter to the page, and tend to remove them when articles meet minimum start-level standard. But that's only my personal preference, and I'll defer to your more informed judgment. Cheers, -Zanhe (talk) 21:05, 10 April 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for the quick reply. I agree with you in principle about stub tags, but I guess would set the bar for removing them just a little higher. Maybe the next editor will be annoyed enough to look at the references and expand the article! ch (talk) 22:27, 10 April 2015 (UTC)

Liu Geping[edit]

Hi, great work on Liu Geping! I actually clicked on a red-link for him initially thinking he was some 'low-hanging fruit', a 15-minute write up to get done and over with, but through writing that article I discovered what a fascinating figure I had stumbled upon by coincidence. Thank you for adding the scholarly references and the copyediting! It might well make GA. Colipon+(Talk) 04:55, 12 April 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for creating the article, Colipon. There's really no "low-hanging fruit" of people born in the early 20th-century China. By the end of the Cultural Revolution, their lives would have been turned upside down five or six times, which is why I find their stories so fascinating. On the other hand, every biography is a major commitment and I hesitate to start writing them. -Zanhe (talk) 04:43, 14 April 2015 (UTC)

Baocheng, Hainan[edit]

Hi can you add to this. I found it on google maps as a town but when I started it I forgot where it was!♦ Dr. Blofeld 17:01, 15 April 2015 (UTC)

@Dr. Blofeld: I found the coords on the zhwiki and added them to the infobox. Cheers! -Zanhe (talk) 18:17, 15 April 2015 (UTC)
Nice one! Amazes me how many sizable towns are still missing like that! Do you know a reliable source for population and area data these days? I'm not sure Baidu is really a reliable source, isn't it a wiki? If I could get hold of some lists with population I might have another run starting some of the missing township level divisions.♦ Dr. Blofeld 19:17, 15 April 2015 (UTC)
@Dr. Blofeld: I know, most towns/townships of China are quite large (with 10,000s of people), and about 30,000 of them are missing (don't even mention the 600,000+ villages)! I've also been thinking about creating them for a long time, but intimidated by the scale of the task. Unfortunately I don't know of any single source where the population/area data are available. County government websites usually have them, but they're scattered about and not easy to find. I don't think Baidu is considered a reliable source, and it doesn't have all the data either, does it? -Zanhe (talk) 08:20, 16 April 2015 (UTC)
