Missing Citations[edit]

This is an on-going project. I will add the citations along the way, there are tons. Please allow some time. TheAsianGURU 18:40, 22 August 2007 (UTC)

I'm sure that you're planning to get around to this, but what is the source for the existing citations 1-11 (as of this version) from? Accounts of Jingkang? Seektruthfromfacts 10:41, 12 September 2007 (UTC)
I believe the characters surrounded by "《EXAMPLE》" are the titles of each source.--Ghostexorcist 10:46, 12 September 2007 (UTC)
Thank you for politely explaining what I should have observed! I realize that the editors have already gone further than many academic sources by including translations of quotations, and I'm really impressed with that effort. As you add more citations, could you work towards making these citations more accessible to English language readers? Guqin#References has examples of what I mean. For one thing, I've puzzled by the 『』 marks, which in my ignorance I've never seen in English or modern Chinese texts. If the citations are to pre-modern Chinese text, it would also be wonderful to start including links to the articles we'll one day have (Book of Jin (1115–1234)????). I hope this stimulates some creative thoughts. Seektruthfromfacts 13:08, 12 September 2007 (UTC)
"『』" is a very classical way of quoting Chinese Classics. "《》" are the book titles. They are all a part of the Accounts of Jingkang collection. I will expand & translate the titles soon. TheAsianGURU 17:35, 12 September 2007 (UTC)
Woo, after I started this project like a yr ago, I finally got around it and translated / added all the names of the book from The Accounts of Jingkang & Twenty-Four Histories in the REF section. TheAsianGURU (talk) 22:52, 10 July 2008 (UTC)

Infobox?[edit]

Should this article have a {{Infobox Military Conflict}}? _dk (talk) 01:05, 28 January 2008 (UTC)

Good point, I think it should. TheAsianGURU (talk) 07:57, 28 January 2008 (UTC)
Done. TheAsianGURU (talk) 19:37, 28 January 2008 (UTC)
