"Chinese Forces" in Boxer article?[edit]

Another topic to be factored in is the section Boxer rebellion#Chinese forces. This is surely an important topic but equally surely too long and out of place in an article concerning Boxer Uprising. Would it be feasible to lift the many usable parts from the Boxer article into this Qing Military History article? ch (talk) 23:27, 12 December 2013 (UTC)

This sounds like a great suggestion, since there is plenty of room here (and notably no section on post-1895 armies), and the Boxer page is getting very cramped. I'm just worried that the content of Boxer Rebellion#Muslim Kansu Braves will be far too detailed for this page! Should we consider opening a new page called Muslim Gansu Braves where we can present the details while we focus on the core points here? Or maybe work to integrate some details of Boxer rebellion#Chinese forces elsewhere into its mother article before moving the usable parts here? Could you re-open this discussion on Talk:Boxer Rebellion to see what other editors think? Cheers! Madalibi (talk) 00:55, 13 December 2013 (UTC)
Will do. There is good material on the Boxer page that would be even better and more accessible on places like a Gansu Braves page ch (talk) 03:39, 13 December 2013 (UTC)
Just in case anyone checks here, Talk:Boxer Rebellion#Military of the Qing dynasty, Muslim Gansu Braves has more discussion, including the fact that there was already an article Kansu Braves. ch (talk) 17:22, 15 February 2014 (UTC)
