Names[edit]

and not #Etymology and Names per WP:COMMON, WP:SCOPE, and WP:TERSE. There's nothing added by the longer name and needless eyesore and makework created for links. That said, the {{anchor}} links for #Etymology and #Name should be left for editors here and abroad linking to those. Also, at some point, the major alt and former names should be bolded, unless there's some strong consensus or reason against it. — LlywelynII 14:07, 17 July 2016 (UTC)

Robert Jacquinot de Besange image[edit]

A hefty mention of Robert Jacquinot de Besange is warranted, but someone added a huge image of him to the history section. Is that really warranted now, taking so much space? We already talk about him and have his article linked, but his image and the large textbox accompanying it that pretty much replicates what's already written next to it just take up so much room.

Well, I changed it to a shot of the Zhabei District burning in 1937. It's better to have glimpses of the situation of the actual city. Mr. Magoo (talk) 02:26, 5 September 2017 (UTC)

I also noticed that the Bloody Saturday (photograph) file in our article is of noticiably lower resolution than the one at the primary article for it. Although the one there doesn't have its borders cropped. Worthy of switching? Mr. Magoo (talk) 07:07, 17 September 2017 (UTC)

Internal links removal[edit]

Recently, several IP users from Taiwan constantly reverted my edits that added some essential internal wiki links(e.g. Yu Garden, Nanjing Road) without a valid reason. These IPs are very likely to belong to the same person. --117.136.44.234 (talk) 13:14, 10 September 2017 (UTC)

Can you say something about City University, Cambodia?The broken from china.--101.15.83.134 (talk) 13:22, 10 September 2017 (UTC)
The talk page is where we discuss things relevant to this article. What you say is nonsense to me.--117.136.44.234 (talk) 13:34, 10 September 2017 (UTC)
I only know that you use wikis as a lecture to promote big Chineseism, and from similar IP and account tracking you can find that you are happy to do these things, such as promoting nationalism or promoting nationalism. The specific approach is like an over-link or Avoid labels.--180.204.135.68 (talk) 13:42, 10 September 2017 (UTC)
What you "only know" doesn't and cannot serve as a valid reason for your irrational and unexplained removal. Btw, I'm,not promoting nationalism and there is no term called "Chineseism". 117.136.44.234 (talk) 13:49, 10 September 2017 (UTC)
You can see Liu Xiaobo. Your IP on there clam that he is a cheat.Don't you? And this page had over link.It is not necessary.--101.12.195.116 (talk) 13:54, 10 September 2017 (UTC)
Liu Xiaobo, man, he's kicked the bucket. How could I see him as a living being. Besides, these links are definitely not "overlinked" as similar city articles (NYC, Tokyo, Paris all have links in their infobox pic caption part. 117.136.44.234 (talk) 14:00, 10 September 2017 (UTC)
If you can let me believe that is necessary.We can end this.Now I don't believe.--101.14.128.158 (talk) 14:05, 10 September 2017 (UTC)
Lol, just lol. You are hilarious.117.136.44.234 (talk) 14:11, 10 September 2017 (UTC)
I found that chinese like personal attacks.Is this a Chinese custom?Do not understand the idea of different races or foreigners.--101.10.37.166 (talk) 14:17, 10 September 2017 (UTC)
You are oversensitive. Laughing at you isn't personal attacks. Btw, asserting all the Chinese to "like personal attacks" is "attacks" on the Chinese people as well, or simply racism.117.136.44.234 (talk) 14:24, 10 September 2017 (UTC)
So return to say that why you think those links are necessary.--49.216.145.104 (talk) 14:28, 10 September 2017 (UTC)
First, this is English wikipedia whose readers may know little about China's cities. That is to see, locales like Yu Garden or Nanjing Road may be unfamiliar to readers which is also why internal wiki links exists to assist readers to better understand the context. In addition, these links I added don't occcur in the following couple sentences.117.136.44.234 (talk) 14:33, 10 September 2017 (UTC)
Give me 10 minutes to read those links again.--115.82.3.182 (talk) 14:42, 10 September 2017 (UTC)
The Bind also needs to be linked according to your words.This time I think your words are right. Ended the event.--117.19.225.127 (talk) 14:51, 10 September 2017 (UTC)


There doesn't seem to be anything wrong with those links. Don't know why they were originally unwanted by the other editor. Mr. Magoo (talk) 05:37, 13 September 2017 (UTC)
