Cuisine[edit]

The potatoes in the cuisine section, are they some species of "native potatoes" or are they potatoes that originated in south America, as in the rest of the world? 86.176.51.41 (talk) 12:59, 23 April 2012 (UTC)

Culture (again)[edit]

Hmm, I asked this two years ago and somehow my question was deleted: The first paragraph in this section implies that Tibetans do not bathe frequently, but only on special holidays: "Each person takes part in the Bathing Festival three times: at birth, at marriage, and at death. It is traditionally believed that people should not bathe casually, but only on the most important occasions."

Is there any truth to this idea that I have seen used as propaganda? I do not know current Tibetan custom.

Mtkoan (talk) 08:25, 4 March 2013 (UTC)

In the old days this was the case. The scarcity of hot water and the Tibetan weather made it unwise to bathe frequently. The Tibetans were also renown for their strong body odour, which is in part due to their diet of yak butter. 86.136.200.136 (talk) 00:34, 24 October 2014 (UTC)

1.2 million Tibetans[edit]

Even Tibetans and others like Patrick French has disputed this figure. [1] — Preceding unsigned comment added by Whu4 (talkcontribs) 22:41, 2 June 2013 (UTC)

That would be four men & four women, except for one all with photographs available (mostly color photographs), and politically balanced (really only two of them are political figures from the post-1959 period).—Greg Pandatshang (talk) 23:08, 7 June 2013 (UTC)

Proposal for the deletion of all the galleries of personalities from the articles about ethnic groups[edit]

Seemingly there is a significant number of commentators which support the general removal of infobox collages. I think there is a great opportunity to get a general agreement on this matter. It is clear that it has to be a broad consensus, which must involve as many editors as possible, otherwise there is a big risk for this decision to be challenged in the near future. I opened a Request for comment process, hoping that more people will adhere to this proposal. Please comment here. TravisRade (talk) 23:05, 15 December 2015 (UTC)

That is not an RfC and it doesn't follow the RfC process. It's just a collection of opinions and has no authority. Liz Read! Talk! 23:16, 15 December 2015 (UTC)
The RfC was opened correctly. please comment at Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Ethnic_groups#Proposal_for_the_deletion_of_all_the_galleries_of_personalities_from_the_infoboxes_of_articles_about_ethnic_groups. Dkfldlksdjaskd (talk) 09:29, 17 December 2015 (UTC)
