Historical vs. Fictional
The same issue is happening with the Wang Chongyang article. This article has two targets: the historical Quanzhen School and the one that was fictionalized by Jin Yong. The short intro on Quanzhen should be elaborated on. I don't know much about it so anyone who knows, feel free to share your thoughts. Then, this ought to be followed by a discussion of Quanzhen according to Jin Yong's universe. Jute 06:57, May 26, 2005 (UTC)
This article is a little ridiculous. While it deserves mention that Quanzhen has an important place in Jin Yong's books, the actual history and especially the theological concepts of take far greater precedence. Quanzhen in Jin Yong's universe should be a minor note. Unfortunately, I haven't studied this stuff in a long time. Jake 07:03, 26 January 2006 (UTC)
This article needs to be rewritten. A lot of historical facts are either wrong or missing. For example, Wang Chong Yang had about a dozen or so disciples before he went to Shangdong, in which there are records of at least 3 of these Shaanxi disciples who later greeted the Shangdong disciples in Xian. Also Wang Chong Yang met Qiu Chuji and other disciples after he met Ma Yu and his wife, and one of the reason why he was greeted well by Ma's family was because the Ma family originated from Shaanxi.
I will rewrite this article in Feb 2007 when I have time.
This article still needs a lot of work. There is the "popular culture" version and the "traditional legend" or "history", but not much of the actual, verifiable history of this school. -Jmh123 16:01, 10 October 2007 (UTC)
I have not have the time to rewrite it. I will suggest we remove the section on Jin Yong's novels as it is not related to the history of Quan Zhen Pai.
