Talk:Order of the Golden Kite
|This is the talk page for discussing improvements to the Order of the Golden Kite article.
This is not a forum for general discussion of the article's subject.
|This article is of interest to the following WikiProjects:|
Does it make sense to limit new additions to this short list?
Is it appropriate at this stage of the article's development to initiate a standard limiting names on this select list to
- (a) those who already have Wikipedia articles
- (b) those who are notable for something other than being honored with this Imperial decoration -- see, e.g., US Navy Cross edit history?
This diff is a first step in seeking consensus opinion.
In a context informed by practices which seem to have worked out well at Navy Cross, all new additions who aren't already featured in an article are re-redirected to this talk page section with the following edit history explanation:
- people listed here must have articles on Wikipedia and be notable for something other than receiving this Japanese honor -- see "Status: Notability" on talk page
The names of those recipients whose award is confirmed by a reliable source, but who do not have an article yet are listed below:
- Unknown class
- Kiyoshi Hasegawa --?
I wonder if the two-colum format is best for this article? Is there a perceived advantage in dividing the lists of recipients into IJA and IJN categories? If so, why? --Tenmei (talk) 02:10, 16 November 2009 (UTC)
Description of Medal symbology
Upon viewing File:Kinshi4.jpg, I idenitified the weapons on the medal as being different from the current description, as of 14 October 2010. The medal actually depicts, under the kite, two bendwise-crossed straight spears (槍 Yari?), and one Tsurugi (剣?) point-down. - B. C. Schmerker (talk) 17:20, 14 October 2010 (UTC)
