Literal meaning[edit]

Article needs literal meaning of province name, and Han Tu. Badagnani 07:27, 11 July 2007 (UTC)

The name in Han Tu is not necessary. Vietnamese government and people don't use it. An Apple of Newton talk 15:13, 18 July 2007 (UTC)

No, it's not necessary for modern use but very useful for etymological and historical purposes, in order to have a contextual understanding of Vietnamese history (these characters were used to write Vietnamese historical documents for thousands of years). Without it, one is cut off from one's own written history and the meanings behind one's own toponyms. Badagnani 02:00, 19 July 2007 (UTC)

Both the Nom Foundation and Chinese Wikipedia give . But the translation doesn't seem to make sense. What is the etymology of this toponym? Badagnani 02:02, 19 July 2007 (UTC)

People's Council Chair listing[edit]

Needs People's Council Chair listing to remove cleanup tag.

Needs map[edit]

Article needs a map! Badagnani 17:20, 11 October 2007 (UTC)

Province map added; need close-up map now. Badagnani 08:20, 20 October 2007 (UTC)

I have a better image, but I'm unsucsessfully trying to upload. Can I post a link to my Flicr and then someone else could add, if desired. (talk) 19:16, 14 March 2009 (UTC)

Undiscussed move counter RM[edit]

(moved Lai Châu Province to Lai Chau province: Lower case, non-diacritical form to correspond with names of other provinces, per AP, VNA. Discussed at WP:VIET.)

Lai Chau Province is now deleted, so Lai Chau province can be moved there. So at least the capitalization is fixed. This should be done ASAP, as there are several incoming links pointing to Lai Chau Province. Diacritics should be resolved centrally for all provinces. NVanMinh (talk) 17:15, 16 December 2012 (UTC)
How can a move be "counter" to an RM for an unrelated article that had a "no consensus" result? Kauffner (talk) 15:39, 18 December 2012 (UTC)
If a RM to remove Vietnamese names for 14 towns doesn't get consensus then undiscussed moves to remove Vietnamese names from those articles and 800x other geo articles is "counter" that RM. Also there was no discussion at WP:VIET. In ictu oculi (talk) 17:25, 26 December 2012 (UTC)

Move discussion in progress[edit]

There is a move discussion in progress on Talk:Bac Ninh Province which affects this page. Please participate on that page and not in this talk page section. Thank you. —RMCD bot 21:44, 5 July 2013 (UTC)
