NYC and America are full of sinophiles. How else do you explain the popularity of Chinese restaurants, wanton soup, dim sum, etc.? 00:58, 1 March 2007 (UTC)

That has nothing to do with sinophilia. That is called globalization - it's the same reason why there are thousands of McDonalds and KFCs in mainland China, Taiwan, Japan, Korea, etc. Also, sinophilia isn't necessarily negative, whereas many western scholars who show an interest in East Asian/Chinese culture can be considered to be a "sinophile," "japanophile," etc Intranetusa (talk) 16:29, 19 December 2007 (UTC)

Added a section & picture regarding Gottfried Wilhelm von Leibniz and Joseph Needham. Intranetusa (talk) 16:29, 19 December 2007 (UTC)

Citation needed is not needed!!!!!![edit]

Why put citation needed? Liking Chinese culture is really normal. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:15, 19 December 2008 (UTC)

That was vandilism by some jealous Indian user, same IP as user who wrote Indomania article, but better be safe I added some cititions anyways, other users please help me get more citations. Not hard just google or better yet wolfram alpha.--Exult (talk) 16:33, 22 August 2009 (UTC)


This vandalism stayed up for over a year. I guess I'm as much to blame as anyone else; I made some lazy edits here in December and didn't notice it in there. rʨanaɢ talk/contribs 07:32, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

Can someone provide a citation for the statement of Michael Bolton being a sinophile?? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:26, 11 May 2011 (UTC) It is said in a song, but I agree, citation needed... simply because it is in the song does not make it fact — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:49, 23 June 2011 (UTC)


interesting to see that half of the people on that list were involved in some kind of revolution or destabilisation of China — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:19, 6 July 2011 (UTC)


I noticed a number of references using the url to a Google Book link. I though editors might be interested in a tool which takes a link as input and creates a (usually) properly formatted ref.

Wikipedia citation tool for Google Books

I used it to improve two such references.

It really helps creates a much cleaner list of references. I hope you will try it. S Philbrick(Talk) 18:20, 14 March 2016 (UTC)
