Assessment[edit]

I don't understand at all why you fail me on "Referencing and citation" and "Coverage and accuracy". Where is the article lacking? Please elaborate. Thanks. Frank (Urashima Tarō) (talk) 19:19, 9 May 2011 (UTC)

Merge?[edit]

Should this article be merged with the article Traditional lighting equipment of Japan? Both articles link to the Japanese article ja:灯籠 (Tōrō), and the Japanese article links to the English article Lantern. Boneyard90 (talk) 18:03, 9 May 2011 (UTC)

I believe the link between Traditional lighting equipment of Japan and the Japanese article is what's wrong: there's far more than Tōrō in Japanese traditional lighting. I think that interwiki link should go. All else should stay as it is. Frank (Urashima Tarō) (talk) 19:19, 9 May 2011 (UTC)
Thinking about it, I think you misunderstand. These two article can't be merged because they cover different ground. The tōrō is just one of many types of traditional lanterns. It has many more variants than the others, and it needs a separate article. So the articles are both necessary, and should stay separate. Frank (Urashima Tarō) (talk) 06:52, 10 May 2011 (UTC)
