lol answering this question from 2 years ago. It was probably a typo. AQu01rius (User | Talk | Websites)  03:51, 4 November 2006 (UTC)

Hsinpu[edit]

Is this where Hsinpu is located? (Where Hsinpu dried persimmons are produced?) Badagnani 03:48, 21 October 2007 (UTC)

Hsinpu (also Sinpu, Xinpu) is a rural town approx. 10km Northeast of Hsinchu. It is known for fruit growing. [Frank, 28.Oct.2008] —Preceding unsigned comment added by 60.248.183.66 (talk) 07:15, 28 October 2008 (UTC)

Etymology[edit]

Does it mean "new bamboo"? This should be added. Badagnani (talk) 08:51, 15 April 2008 (UTC)

Hsinchu or Xinzhu. I added the alternative name for information only[edit]

I added the alternative name for information only. Xinzhu is Hanyu Pinyin, is now one of the standards in Taiwan and is often used to romanise 新竹 (Hsinchu) (alternative). --Atitarev (talk) 05:16, 30 April 2008 (UTC)

It's already in the article. Look a couple spaces to the right. and refer to Wikipedia:Manual of Style (China-related articles)--Jiang (talk) 14:49, 30 April 2008 (UTC)

Xinzhu DistrictXinzhu City — Either go with Huayu pinyin or back to its former name but not "Xinzhu District" because it is a city not a district.

  • Close? Now reverted to Hsinchu, like most of the rest of Taiwan. Leave well enough alone. Septentrionalis PMAnderson 19:51, 9 July 2009 (UTC)

  • Close. I can't cite it now, but Hsinchu is one of the cities that keeps its Wade-Giles spelling due to its prominence (cf. Taipei, Kaohsiung). — AjaxSmack 06:46, 11 July 2009 (UTC)

Source[edit]

Hi,

I try doing research of the investments that the government did in the Hsinchu Science park and related insititutions like the ITRI. The article says 31 billion but where is the source of this number? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 130.75.182.176 (talk) 14:38, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
