Scientific evidence that the Chinese evolved separately from Homo Erectus Pekinensis[edit]

Dear Ano-User,

Thanks for your good faith edits! I am re-posting some of the peer reviewed scientific journals here. Numerous Archaeological fossil studies and as well as the relatively recent genetic studies have shown that many modern Chinese people retain both the genes and their consequential phenotypic morphological traits, such as flattened faces, small frontal sinuses, reduced posterior teeth, shovel-shaped incisors, and high frequencies of metopic sutures, which are virtually absent in modern day European, Middle Eastern, and African populations but widely present in the modern population of the Han Chinese. This presents fossil evidence strongly suggesting a direct evolutionary lineage of the modern Chinese people from their ancestors of the species Homo Erectus Pekinensis.

Please watch this, it is from the Chinese Academy of Sciences:

Hi from Danny[edit]

Hi Ano! I have been reading the page you have created/edited on Innumerable Meaning Sutra(Ananta-nirdisa Sutra). This sutra is thought to be Indic or Central Asian in origin and then translated into Chinese, then to other languages. I have been trying to find the Sanskrit version or records of Sanskrit fragments.

The reason this is important is that the current English translation of Innumberable Meaning Sutra is based on Chinese. As there can be changes during the translation process, I would be very interested in finding a Sanskrit(or Indic/Central Asian) copy of it. Would you have to know if such a copy exists or where to find it?

I was a bit concerned when I came across a journal article by a Japanese scholar saying there is a hypothesis that Innumberable Meaning Sutra was composed in China. (See Do you know more about this hypothesis and whether it does have a Sanskrit copy?

Sorry I am not currently registered as Wikipedia user. I will register in the next month or so as school is busy. In the mean time please leave response on this page.

Danny, sorry I took so long to reply to your question!! Now that I'm here I'll try and answer it as much as I can. Lets asked if I knew where we could find the original Sanskrit versions of the Innumerable Meanings Sutra. Well, as you can see, the article I have created for it does not have much detail about the exact origin of this sutra, only that it was translated into Chinese by Dharmajātayaśas in the 4th and 5th centuries. Beyond this information I know very little about its origins. I encourage you to to do some research and add anything you get to the article as you see fit, and I will look at it.
When you finally have an account for wikipedia we can start analyzing certain theories on the article's discussion page if you like. -Ano-User (talk) 06:32, 3 December 2008 (UTC)


A short time ago you made edits to the Hominidae page, changing "Great ape" to "hominid." These edits were subsequently reverted, but there is some discussion now on the matter on the Talk:Hominidae page, if you would care to weigh in on it. Tapatio (talk) 13:22, 7 April 2010 (UTC)

Hawaii edit-a-thon![edit]

Hello. I'm interested in attempting to put together an edit-a-thon for Hawaiian cultural topics something during the Makahiki festival perhaps around the month of November. The hope is that our lackluster coverage of Hawaiian mythology could be improved with help from the Bishop Museum, Hawaii Pacific University, and the Honolulu public library. I am in the process of making initial contacts with these organizations as well as Wikimedia DC's GLAM project. If this sounds like something you might be interested in participating in, or perhaps helping to coordinate, could you please add your name to 2014 Makahiki Edit-a-thon?--v/r - TP 21:21, 9 June 2014 (UTC)

Language-population update project[edit]

Hi. The 18th edition of Ethnologue just came out, and if we divide up our language articles among us, it won't take long to update them. I would appreciate it if you could help out, even if it's just a few articles (5,000 articles is a lot for just me), but I won't be insulted if you delete this request.

A largely complete list of articles to be updated is at Category:Language articles citing Ethnologue 17. The priority articles are in Category:Language articles with old Ethnologue 17 speaker data. These are the 10% that have population figures at least 25 years old.

Probably 90% of the time, Ethnologue has not changed their figures between the 17th and 18th editions, so all we need to do is change "e17" to "e18" in the reference (ref) field of the language info box. That will change the citation for the artcle to the current edition. Please put the data in the proper fields, or the info box will flag it as needing editorial review. The other relevant fields are "speakers" (the number of native speakers in all countries), "date" (the date of the reference or census that Ethnologue uses, not the date of Ethnologue!), and sometimes "speakers2". Our convention has been to enter e.g. "1990 census" when a census is used, as other data can be much older than the publication date. Sometimes a citation elsewhere in the article depends on the e17 entry, in which case you will need to change "name=e17" to "name=e18" in the reference tag (assuming the 18th edition still supports the cited claim).

Remember, we want the *total* number of native speakers, which is often not the first figure given by Ethnologue. Sometimes the data is too incompatible to add together (e.g. a figure from the 1950s for one country, and a figure from 2006 for another), in which case it should be presented that way. That's one use for the "speakers2" field. If you're not sure, just ask, or skip that article.

Data should not be displayed with more than two, or at most three, significant figures. Sometimes it should be rounded off to just one significant figure, e.g. when some of the component data used by Ethnologue has been approximated with one figure (200,000, 3 million, etc.) and the other data has greater precision. For example, a figure of 200,000 for one country and 4,230 for another is really just 200,000 in total, as the 4,230 is within the margin of rounding off in the 200,000. If you want to retain the spurious precision of the number in Ethnologue, you might want to use the {{sigfig}} template. (First parameter in this template is for the data, second is for the number of figures to round it off to.)

Dates will often need to be a range of all the country data in the Ethnologue article. When entering the date range, I often ignore dates from countries that have only a few percent of the population, as often 10% or so of the population isn't even separately listed by Ethnologue and so is undated anyway.

If Ethnologue does not provide a date for the bulk of the population, just enter "no date" in the date field. But if the population figure is undated, and hasn't changed between the 17th & 18th editions of Ethnologue, please leave the ref field set to "e17", and maybe add a comment to keep it so that other editors don't change it. In cases like this, the edition of Ethnologue that the data first appeared in may be our only indication of how old it is. We still cite the 14th edition in a couple dozen articles, so our readers can see that the data is getting old.

The articles in the categories linked above are over 90% of the job. There are probably also articles that do not currently cite Ethnologue, but which we might want to update with the 18th edition. I'll need to generate another category to capture those, probably after most of the Ethnologue 17 citations are taken care of.

Jump in at the WP:LANG talk page if you have any comments or concerns. Thanks for any help you can give!

Looking for editors to help with an Asian Pacific American edit-a-thon in Honolulu[edit]

WikiProject Hawaii.svg
On Oahu? Edit Wikipedia or Wikimedia sister projects? You are invited to help the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center with an Asian Pacific American edit-a-thon in Honolulu this September.
Smithsonian logo color.svg


Last summer I moved to the Seattle area after 14 years in Kailua on Oahu. I immediately fell in with the Cascadia Wikimedians User Group as it formed, joined its board and became its first president as well as the GLAM representative for Washington State.

Recently, Adriel Luis, Curator (Digital & Emerging Media) at the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center, contacted me about setting up an edit-a-thon like the previous Wikipedia APA edit-a-thon. In addition to discussing one for Seattle, he wrote:

As I was working two jobs while I lived on Oahu, I did not have the opportunity to meet your or any other Wikipedians at the time. Hence, the reason why I am contacting you now.

If you would like to help, please contact me through one of these methods:
