Request for help with Brian Hioe article[edit]

Hi Chongkian, I notice you've been editing on Sunflower Student Movement, and am wondering if you're able to help. A couple of days ago, I started an article on Brian Hioe, founding editor of New Bloom Magazine, however his page has already been nominated for WP:AfD. I have had trouble locating references in English. I am requesting help from any editors I can think of, who might have knowledge in this area, and possibly also knowledge of Chinese language (which I am unable to read or speak) sources. (BTW, assuming you think he is notable enough to justify a page of course). Cheers MatthewTStone (talk) 07:49, 11 January 2017 (UTC)

Hi MatthewTStone! Yeah, I understand the frustrating feeling once your article got nominated for deletion due to lack of content. Even I had 13 articles deleted so far due to insufficient references and notability (in which sometimes it is really subjective to each people/nationality/country size). I'll try to see here on what I can do to help out ;) Chongkian (talk) 07:52, 11 January 2017 (UTC)
Yes, I am just finding out, as this is the second time WP:AfD has happened to me this week...! And I agree it is quite subjective. From what I can tell, Hioe is a young guy and new in the media landscape, but he and New Bloom are quite important, as part of a changing political scene. But for people outside Taiwan, it is hard to appreciate why. I am wondering whether New Bloom should have its own page, or should it be part of his article. MatthewTStone (talk) 19:14, 11 January 2017 (UTC)
PS the article has now been moved into WP:Draftspace at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draft:Brian_Hioe so that leaves a bit of breathing space. MatthewTStone (talk) 22:27, 12 January 2017 (UTC)
I've tried to search from Chinese sources, and the reason is actually correct. It's not that the person doesn't have any source, but instead most of the source is never about the person themselves, but the works of that person. Even when I try to search the English and Chinese name, it gives two different person picture (one is male and the other is female respectively). Have you confirm that the English name and the Chinese name is correct? Thanks. Chongkian (talk) 00:08, 13 January 2017 (UTC)
Good question. I took the Chinese name from his editorial page at New Bloom <https://newbloommag.net/author/brian-hioe/>. I assumed this would be correct? MatthewTStone (talk) 02:44, 13 January 2017 (UTC)

WikiProject Malaysia February 2017 Newsletter[edit]

Help for including Sunway to WikiProject Malaysia's scope[edit]

Hi there,

I'm currently working in Sunway Berhad (Malaysia) and we're currently working on getting information out about our company and affiliated entities in a fair and balanced manner. As such, we feel that it's important that we can cooperate with the community that watches over Malaysian wiki pages. On that token, I'm in doubt as to how I can request for our Wikipedia pages to be within the scope of WikiProject Malaysia, as they is currently not listed under the WikiProject (other than one of our subsidiaries 'Sunway City Ipoh').

Could you help guide me on this? Thanks! --Sesd17 (talk) 07:09, 2 February 2017 (UTC)

Hi Sesd17,

Thanks for your interest in the efforts of integrating private business sectors (Sunway Bhd.) with WikiProject Malaysia. Do you have any email where I can contact you to discuss this further?

Regards. Chongkian (talk) 17:35, 3 February 2017 (UTC)

Invitation to the Wikipedia Selangor Meetup 2[edit]

Wikipedia Malaysia Meetup Banner.jpg

The 4th Wikipedia Malaysia Meetup will be held for the second time on Selangor, and you are invited!

→ To collaborate between Wikipedia Malaysia User Group and Sunway Group, a large corporation in Malaysia.
→ To create Wikipedia (and other Wikimedia projects)'s articles and edit/improve articles on the spot.

This meetup was initiated by Chongkian and the invitation was written and sent by NgYShung. For more information and updates, see the meetup page. If there is any enquires, feel free to discuss at the talk page. If you wish to opt-out of any future Malaysia meetup invitation, please add your name here.

Do you invite Bahasa Melayu Wikipedia users for your meetup?[edit]

Just curiosity, do you invite users at Bahasa Melayu Wikipedia every time you held a meetup? Even though I'm not active in Malay Wikipedia (I was considering to be active so I can improve my Malay since mine is not as good :p), I may go create/expand the meetup page (ms:Wikipedia:Perjumpaan) if I got spare time to do so. You can notify the bureaucrat Yosri for assist or help. Cheers! NgYShung huh? 08:16, 5 March 2017 (UTC)

Initially we even put at the top of the main page ('banner' area?) of ms.wikipedia.org for the very first Wikipedia Malaysia meetup. But it seems like it gives very little effect. Besides, there is no dedicated meetup page for ms.wikipedia.org. Maybe we can create one and can always link both the en & ms page for any Wikipedia Malaysia meetup in the future.Chongkian (talk) 08:23, 5 March 2017 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Chiang Wei-shui Memorial Park, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Memorial park. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Please support the Sustainability Initiative![edit]

Please support the Sustainability Initiative!

Hi, Chongkian! Please allow me to follow up on a project that was discussed at the Wikimedia Conference in Berlin a couple of weeks ago:

I am writing you to ask for your support for the Sustainability Initiative, which aims at reducing the environmental impact of the Wikimedia movement. Over the past two years, more than 250 Wikipedians from all over the world have come together to push the Wikimedia movement towards greater sustainability.

The Board of Trustees of the Wikimedia Foundation has recently passed a resolution stating that the Foundation is committed to seeking ways to reduce the impact of its activities on the environment. Now, we are working with the Wikimedia Foundation staff to have all Wikimedia servers run on renewable energy by 2019.

In order to demonstrate that this is an issue that the community really cares about, I would like to ask you to sign the project page as well. Thank you! --Gnom (talk) 16:21, 14 April 2017 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Tamsui Art Gallery[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Tamsui Art Gallery, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G11 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page seems to be unambiguous advertising which only promotes a company, group, product, service, person, or point of view and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become encyclopedic. Please read the guidelines on spam and Wikipedia:FAQ/Organizations for more information.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator. Redhat101 Talk 03:01, 20 April 2017 (UTC)

Need Help - https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=City_Hall,_Penang&action=history[edit]

Someone took out a whole chunk of history that I put in. Please advise. Thank you.

While I have nothing against people expanding an article (in which why I did not take out your writing portion), from my point of view, this article is about the building itself (not the government entity), thus we should focus only on that particular building, not any building used as the predecessor to house the central government of Penang. If this article is about Penang State Government, then we can talk on the building that houses the government, and even former buildings which housed it. Also, the historical section that you've written is far too long compared to other section of the article. If history section were to be made long, then the (for example) architecture, budget/finance, maintenance, structural design, tourism-related facilities, any event/incident to/at the building etc must be made 'equally' long as well. Your writing has too many citation/quotes, in which those parts can be written in Wikiquote, not in Wikipedia. Also your writing has very few links to other Wikipedia article, in which you might want to add that. Chongkian (talk) 00:33, 28 April 2017 (UTC)

As written it is confusing since before 1st January 1957 this building was called Town Hall which also refers to another earlier building. Furthermore the article is called City Hall rather than City Hall Building. But if no one is concerned about the confusion brought about by grammar, then let it be. jefferyseow (talk)

Malacca/Melaka[edit]

It looks like you are busy trying to make wholesale changes to wikipedia articles on the use of the name. Please note that it is not the policy of Wikipedia to change name in its articles when there is an official name change per WP:MODERNPLACENAME. Wikipedia is not a government publication. It changes only when that official name has become the standard form in English usage. Hzh (talk) 10:08, 4 May 2017 (UTC)

There has been several name changes in Malaysia lately which was made officially (by the royal/state/local government), such as Kulai from previously Kulaijaya, Iskandar Puteri from previously Nusajaya. They were all announced by the government, and the name change took immediate effect, in which all (for example) road sign, gov website/publications use that new name. Of course redirect will always be maintained to the old name to give people the 'transition' period to familiarize the new name. But once the name has been changed, it is a new name. It's not that I want to 'spam' around in Wikipedia, no. Even previously, I had made many articles about Malacca/Melaka in which I used the word 'Malacca', but after the name change announcement, then I've changed all of the articles to 'Melaka' (indeed it is a lot of works to be done). For the case of Malacca/Melaka, is there any official definition on when that "name has become the standard form in English usage" ? Thanks. Chongkian (talk) 00:19, 5 May 2017 (UTC)
What is done with other instances is irrelevant, i.e. if other people make mistakes in their edits, you don't follow them. It can also be that other instances are not directly relevant, since Malacca is common usage (and widely used in other geographical names or names of other entities), whereas your other examples are not, therefore any change is of little relevance to the casual readers. We follow Wikipedia guidelines, not other people people's ignorance of them. I have already given you the link that suggests what you can check to indicate is the common usage. Read it. An example is Burma which was changed to Myanmar, although many English sources still use Burma, Myanmar is now commonly used enough in various publications, for example [1]. In the case of Malacca/Melaka, Melaka is already being used in some English sources, therefore it is not that urgent an issue, although you would still need to show that it is much more common that it is now to change the article name of Malacca. These things usually take a few years to take effect, so wait a while and see. Hzh (talk) 09:12, 5 May 2017 (UTC)
A further thing to note that is that if you want to change the title of a page, you should also indicate in the lead what the older name is (usually in the first sentence), this is to avoid confusion to readers who are unaware of any name change. See again Myanmar, and also WP:ALTNAME. Hzh (talk) 09:26, 5 May 2017 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Category:1941 establishments in Malaya[edit]

A tag has been placed on Category:1941 establishments in Malaya requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section C1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the category has been empty for seven days or more and is not a disambiguation category, a category redirect, a featured topics category, under discussion at Categories for discussion, or a project category that by its nature may become empty on occasion.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay.

The right way to move/merge categories[edit]

Please don't just remove categories and then blank the categories if you want to try and move/merge categories. The right way to do it is via WP:Categories for discussion - which has the big advantage that the process is automated if you go that route. I have some sympathy with what you were trying to do earlier today, but you should still seek a consensus for category moves/merges rather than just being WP:BOLD.Le Deluge (talk) 21:26, 8 June 2017 (UTC)

Jamek Mosque[edit]

I have no idea why you feel the need to keep changing title of articles to the latest. Wikipedia is not a newspaper or any official organisation in Malaysia. We use what is normally used, not what has just been changed. You can note in the first sentence what the official name is, but why change the title into one that few people know about? Please stop doing that. Please note the Wikipedia guidelines on use of common names per WP:COMMONNAME and also note how to proceed when name has changed per WP:NAMECHANGES.

Hi. Thankyou for your participation in the challenge series or/and contests. In November The Women in Red World Contest is being held to try to produce new articles for as many countries worldwide and occupations as possible. There will be over $4000 in prizes to win, including Amazon vouchers and paid subscriptions. If this would appeal to you and you think you'd be interested in contributing new articles on women during this month for your region or wherever please sign up in the participants section. The articles done may also count towards the ongoing challenge. If you're not interested in prize money yourself but are willing to participate and raise money to buy books about women for others to use, this is also fine. Help would also be appreciated in drawing up the lists of missing articles. If you think of any missing articles please add them to the sub lists by continent at Missing articles. Thankyou, and if taking part, good luck!♦ Dr. Blofeld 08:33, 5 October 2017 (UTC)

I'd like to invite you to join us for Wikipedia Asian Month 2017, which once again lasts through the month of November. The goal is for users to create new articles on Asian-related content, each at least 3,000 bytes and 300 words in length. Editors who create at least four articles will receive a Wikipedia Asian Month postcard!

Also be sure to check out the Wikipedia Asian Art Month affiliate event - creating articles on Asian art topics can get you a Metropolitan Museum of Art postcard!

Hi Chongkian. Thank you for your articles on Jut Art Museum and Sabah Art Gallery, they are a valuable contribution to the free encyclopedia and to the general Wikipedia Asian Month contest. However, the rules of the supported sub-contest covers Asian artwork types, that can be illustrated by Met CC0 image release, so that doesn't include museums themselves in Asia. If there is a particular Asian artwork type or genre or period of history that you are interested in, I'll be glad to help research images and publications from Met resources to help fill it out.--Pharos (talk) 14:58, 2 November 2017 (UTC)

I did tried to write some (female in red, art), but apparently the female articles were all too short to quality, and the art articles was supposed to be articles about art itself, while what I wrote was about art galleries/museums (the venues, not the type of art).

Johor[edit]

I think this link will help you to expand the Johor article. (ps. Your User talk page is too many reply, hope you move the older talk to archive because m this page is too lag.. plz..)TQ angys (Talk Talk) 19:17, 30 March 2018 (UTC)

Oh, thanks for the info. Yeah, things are getting longer. Sometimes when there are too many replies, I can't trace which one is which one & got lost. Do you know how to "archive" or move some of these older conversations to archive page? I've never done that before. Oh ya, regarding Johor article & maybe other articles about states in Malaysia, what is lacking is the detailed economic industries in their state. Too many times Malaysia online newspaper only gives sensational news (e.g. water supply problem) without really informing the overall overview & development of each economic sectors. Although Malaysia is covered with so many palm oil plantation, but news about palm oil is very very rare. Even now what I'm struggling is the exact boundary of each district (daerah) in each state. Too many times the local authority (majlis daerah or majlis bandaraya) has improper/vague boundary of their respective area. Some even follow popular opinion regarding the location (e.g. either Bandar Sunway is located inside Petaling Jaya or Subang Jaya, either Skudai is located inside Johor Bahru City (MBJB) or Iskandar Puteri (BPIP or formerly MPJBT), but Iskandar Puteri sometimes are popularly known only on those highly developing area in western Johor (those Legoland & Kota Iskandar regions, without those older establishment such as Skudai, Taman Ungku Tun Aminah etc), or whether Masai is part of JB city (MBJB) or Pasir Gudang (MPPG). Even I can never figure outk the exact boundary of George Town (Penang) city area (to differentiate between George Town city area and Bayan Baru town area. are Jelutong and Gelugor even towns by itself or suburb or George Town?). When things have been written its articles to be more and more detailed, we need these proper limit & boundary between each other to avoid overlapping. You know any source that can solve these problems? Thanks in advance :) Chongkian (talk) 00:41, 31 March 2018 (UTC)
You can see Wikipedia:ARCHIVE. For the boundary one, I prefer to follow PBT's boundary because it have 3 level and district only 1 level. In South Korea , they have county and also city for thier administrative division. Malaysia should learn to China and Korea. So for I I will use PBT first (except Penang for district or postcode boundary, only MBPP and MPSP although the resident reached 1000000). So better we wikipedians do maps for readers can know know it clearly.

Iskandar Puteri, Hang Tuah Jaya it was like Petaling Jaya at the time is a satelite city for the state seat. Afterwards, the old town under the municipal/city council such as Skudai and Ayer Keroh will become part of it in the future (example is Sungai Way). George Town is a city but It is usually regarded as Penang. (Bayan Baru=Bayan Lepas's new town, Jelutong and Gelugor are George Town proper just like KL and Cheras , Bukit Buntang).

In spite of this, some local governments did not follow the main town areas. I will divide it into three categories: multiple towns (Manjung comprise of Sitiawan, Lumut, Pangkor, Seri Manjung, Beruas;MP Selayang have Batu Caves, Rawang, Gombak.. but those area's population is roughly the same), concentration in urban areas (JB, PJ, Melaka City) and dual-core town (MBIP Skudai and IP, MPSP Butterworth and BM). However, the borders of most districts and local governments are the same. For some area like Puchong, Bukit Mertajam, Skudai that have not own its MP/MD, we should use the postcode boundary.

proper limit & boundary? Maybe [1] and this. JUPEM should do for that but they doesnt publish those boundary into the Internet. angys (Talk Talk) 10:42, 31 March 2018 (UTC)

I want to tell you that, since you had add a transportation section for many towns in Johor Bahru. Perhaps you can create a List of bus routes in Johor Bahru. You can refer to List of bus routes in Penang and List Of bus routes in Kuala Lumpur, thank you. angys (Talk Talk)

Taiwan–Ukraine relations[edit]

Uhm, this is a bit hard to rate. If only those two have representative offices on each side (for sure not embassies due to one-china policy), then it's easier to access. Ok, at least since it is not just one paragraph and there is some history to it, then this can be 'start' article. But still, much more things can be added to make it as a C or even B article, I'll name a few:
On this history section, what is the latest development between the two sides (at least in the year 2010 and above)? Any latest discussion in Ukrain or Taiwan's parliament in establishing representative offices?
Can add political section. Has there any (or any discussion on) visit from officials from both sides to each other sides (after Ukraine established relation with PRC)?
Can add economic section. Any trading activities between the two sides (export & import)? If yes, what are the import or export value & the surplus? Is there any Taiwanese products being marketed & sold in Ukraine & vice versa? How many Ukrain expats working in Taiwan & vice versa.
Can add cultural section. Is there any "Ukrainian Culture/Music/Film Festival" in Taiwan & vice versa?
Can add education section. Is there any Ukrainian students studying in Taiwanese universities & vice versa? Is there any Ukrainian language teaching/courses in Taiwan & vice versa?
Can add conflicts with Mainland China with regards to Taiwan, if any. Does PRC government have any affairs/saying on any Ukraine's matter with Taiwan? e.g. Naming of "Taiwan" or "Taiwan, China" in any official publication or documentation.
Of course if there is any photo to supplement this article would be really much appreciated :)

Chongkian (talk) 05:57, 7 April 2018 (UTC)

  • To the response, I would answer the questions I know.
  1. A representative office is not official, we know. So, the discussion between both sides is not obviously important. The former soviet union countries almost follow the One China policy, China and they don't allow that in their capitals. This part still needs the reliable resource.
  2. The answer is yes. But the resources are all Chinese language. I will tell the problem as follow paragraph.
  3. Same as section 2.
  4. I think that would be unnecessary because it's not an official activity.
  5. No, as I know. No one knows the Ukranian language in Taiwan due to the few movements between both sides. But there are few Russian language lessons.
  6. I think this part all happens in Russia, Belarus, Moldova and many countries. Ukraine is not the only case.
  7. What kinds of a picture? I will pick one. I know well-known Ukrainian in Taiwan.

So the main problem is that I looked for a Wikipedia/admin a week ago, he just quitted and left my contribution alone for the reason I believe it's too personal (This always happens in the Chinese culture, some people care about the politeness only). There are lots of information could be missing during the translation process. If you know someone understands Chinese well and can proofread, please recommend them on the list. Otherwise, more expanding is not gonna happen. Thanks. --Beta Lohman (talk) 01:07, 8 April 2018 (UTC)

Event coordinator granted[edit]

Wikipedia Event coordinator.svg

After reviewing your request for the "eventcoordinator" permission, I have enabled the flag on your account. Keep in mind these things:

  • The event coordinator right removes the limit on the maximum number of new accounts that can be created in a 24-hour period.
  • The event coordinator right allows you to temporarily add the "confirmed" permission to newly created accounts. You should not grant this for more than 10 days.
  • The event coordinator right is not a status symbol. If it remains unused, it is likely to be removed. Abuse of the event coordinator right will result in its removal by an administrator.
  • Please note, if you were previously a member of the "account creator" group, your flag may have been converted to this new group.

If you no longer require the right, let me know, or ask any other administrator. Drop a note on my talk page if you run into troubles or have any questions about appropriate/inappropriate use of the event coordinator right. Happy editing! TonyBallioni (talk) 02:22, 16 May 2018 (UTC)

Thanks a lot TonyBallioni! ~ :D

Scholarly sources?[edit]

I have noticed that there are not many scholarly books and articles used as sources in the article Islam in Taiwan. The article is mostly drawing from news sources. Adding more scholarly sources will increase the chances to get the article to pass as GA. It will also help to add more reflection to the article.--Farang Rak Tham (Talk) 22:43, 16 April 2018 (UTC) Copied from Talk:Islam in Taiwan#Scholarly sources?.--Farang Rak Tham (Talk) 11:43, 22 May 2018 (UTC)

Yes, I do acknowledge and understand that shortcoming. Most of the matters in Islam in Taiwan are contemporary issues, so most of the news and latest news come from the online news website. I've tried to search for such scholarly sources, but there isn't just enough (or almost none) sources to support that due to the nature that the religion is (or at least had been) a very minority in Taiwan over the past few decades. Only recently things have started to catch up and grow considerably well, thus more are covered by the news. Nevertheless, I'll try to see what else I can do about it. Chongkian (talk) 16:22, 22 May 2018 (UTC)

Project tags on talk pages[edit]

Are by their own design defaulted to category - when placed raw on a talk page - there is no valid reason to add class=category JarrahTree 04:36, 28 May 2018 (UTC)

Oh oh, true, I didn't realize that. I've tried it just now (e.g. {{WikiProject ABC}} only), and once previewed/saved, it shows category. Thank's for pointing that out! :) Chongkian (talk) 04:43, 28 May 2018 (UTC)
some category tag template are hard wired for articles and will not default to cat and NA - and you have to put them (class=NA) in specifically, but 99 percent of project tags default to category and NA without the extra coding. also there was/is a brilliant project tagging device in preferences..https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Evad37/rater
well worth getting and using, as you can rate from min space and not have to open the talk page while assessing. Well worth trying JarrahTree 06:30, 28 May 2018 (UTC)

there is a very large backlog of inadequately tagged categories and articles - where many things are part of the subject/topic, but not what can be done. Many china project articles could have an extra qualifier project where someone has wandered through with china and not added anything else, as you might have found already JarrahTree 04:37, 10 June 2018 (UTC)
Yeah, really really A LOT. Not only about the category's wikiproject categorization, but also the category itself (forget about article's categorization, which is probably millions are not yet fully categorized and given class/importance to its wikiproject), lol. By the way, the hardest part i found so far is what is the parent of WikiProject Culture? because that wikiproject is now defunct already. I found hard to recatecorize let's say Culture of China (we cant just categorize it into one WikiProject China. still too general). And also the inactive country-based wikiproject I found, such as WikiProject Cambodia, WikiProject Iraq, WikiProject Liechtenstein, I dont think we should ever let this wikiproject country to die/idle (or move to its parents continent WikiProject (e.g. WikiProject Asia, WikiProject Europe), no matter how idle the contributors are, because country is the very very minimum level already. (we can have a dead/defunct other too detailed wikiprojects, but not country-level. well, unless that country probably gone from earth or merge/reunify with other country). Also WikiProject Mongols, does it refer exclusively to Mongolia (country), or it also inclusive of Inner Mongolia (part of China)? For WikiProjet Tibet, Hong Kong & Macau, I shall assume all of them to be exclusively part of WikiProject China (so no need to write both WikiProject Tibet and WikiProject China at the same time in its category talk page). we shall not discuss any further disputed political divisions here, else WikiProject categorization will be a never ending works. Some still haven't been solved though, especially WikiProject Kosovo and WikiProject Crimea (to be sub of Ukraine or Russia). For WikiProject Korea, seems they cater both north & south korea, although for North Korea, there is the sub-wikiproject (or workgroup) from WikiProject Korea (WikiProject Korea|nk=yes), but we dont see the same thing for South Korea. Many topics in Russia's far east, Mongolia, nothern China are categorized into WikiProject Central Asia, which i think it is too general. We have each of those country's WikiProject. "cross-country-border" WikiProjects shall only be used for cases such as cross-country geographical features (e.g. desert, rivers etc), or the general topic of such area (e.g. Geography of Central Asia, etc). These need much more work for recategorization into its child categories. These special distinction & divisions in WikiProject which I think is really fundamental, we need to address first.

Jawi Name[edit]

I've noticed that you have removed the Jawi name from several Singaporean articles that are of historic value to the Malays and replace them with Chinese script. While Singapore does not recognize Jawi as an official script, it is still used within those institutions[1][2][3]. Also as these institutions are of great importance to the Malays, it makes sense to have Jawi rather than Chinese script.

Do note that Jawi is the older system of writing Malay and that it is of great importance that it is still retained in today's context so as to preserve the Malay culture. While the Chinese can have pinyin, Hokkien and peh oe ji (In which it isn't an official script official by the way) why can't the Malays have Jawi translations to the name? We would appreciate if you would stop such edits and if possible restore those articles that you have edited as it would have felt that the edits have marginalized the Malays further in a country that Malays are indigenous to. 32cravenfan (talk) 17:19, 13 June 2018 (UTC)

Just as a note here - the issue is that adding unreadable script that is not referenced is WP:OR and items should or could be removed on the basis that there is no way an english speaking editor can verify jawi material... on that basis there is very limited application or usage in an english encyclopedia for such additions. If that is not understood - the Indonesian project discussion page has had explanation of this. To ask an editor to 'stop' a particular sort of editing on the basis on unprovable additions (see WP:V) is in bad faith JarrahTree 09:07, 22 July 2018 (UTC)


Refenences[edit]

If you think I have marginalized the Malays, then I'm sorry. But I'm trying to write based on neutral-point-of-view and 101% objective First according to Wikipedia writing standard. By right, it is the official languages of that particular country first where the name should be listed. The Jawi script is official in Brunei, thus naming of Brunei-related name is English (because of en.wikipedia.org), then followed by the official Malay in alphabet & Malay in Jawi. For Singapore, before we add the Jawi script, it's better to provide the name in 4 Singapore official languages first (English, Malay, Chinese & Tamil). We work based on priority first (official first, then only additional name, due to other factors (e.g. history, etc). Chongkian (talk) 17:23, 13 June 2018 (UTC)
And I also add many other information to the mosques also, such as subdivision (e.g. Punggol, Ang Mo Kio), transportation access, category of establishment year, see also, infobox, link to wikimedia commons, reorganizing photos in wikimedia commons, organize them according to their appropriate WikiProject, creating wikimedia commons new category, etc. I'm adding more & more information as a Wikipedia article standard. This is what most of the articles is lacking and we should help each other to improve as Wikipedia Article. I'm actually trying to bring this Singapore-mosque related articles to a much much higher-level standard of articles. It has nothing to do about marginalizing the Malays if that's what you think. We try to be professional here as Wikipedia editors, not try to take things personally. Chongkian (talk) 17:29, 13 June 2018 (UTC)
While I do not stop you from making further improvements to the articles, to replace/remove the Jawi names and replace them with Chinese names in articles that do not have much relevance to non-Chinese institutions already felt marginalizing enough. It would be similar if someone were to remove all the Hokkien, Pinyin and peh oe ji (Since they too are not the official script) translations in Chinese related institutions and replaced them with Malay. Being professional, you shouldn't erase the previous efforts of other Wikipedia editors that have put the trouble and effort to contribute to the articles without first considering it's relevance.32cravenfan (talk) 03:07, 14 June 2018 (UTC)

sociology tag[edit]

Used to be a sign that a certain project editor who I have had to tackle over a few issues had been there - ok the culture project tag is very offputting this project is dead style - however I would counsel very carefully, the slippage of a western sociology to understanding cultures that are not western - I would strongly suggest avoiding the slippage - as a trained anthropologist with fieldwork experience in south east asia I would say that the sociology tag is misleading. I would not necessarily espouse the anthrop tag either...it is complicated - better to leave alone in the end imho.

I try to diverse everything, not only Wikiproject classification, but also Wikipedia article creation, Wikiquote article creation, Wikimedia Commons photo uploads & categorization, Wikiproject evaluation (grade & importance), Wikipedia meetups etc. Only now I acknowledge WikiProject Festivals is not really a good Wikiproject cuz there is no assessment section inside it.

removing oceans[edit]

OK it might be a bit of a problem - but both culture and oceans though for some absurd reason 'made inactive' by taggers - the project tags are still relevant... imho, I would be very wary about removing them - I do not think 'oceanography' will in the long run take over the role of the oceans project - as far as I can tell JarrahTree 06:48, 27 August 2018 (UTC)

Well, that article already have soo many WikiProjects classification. Removing one inactive project is like try to help cleaning it up. Same like the inactive Taiwan aborigines WikiProject, it is completely inactive and has been redirected to WikiProject Taiwan. Thus to replace that Taiwan aborigines WikiProject, I changed it to Ethnic group Wikiproject because there are only two WikiProject classifications (Taiwan & that Taiwan aborigines) .. note: my spelling on the WikiProject names might be a bit off from the exact wording beccause I don't double check it when typing this. I somehow agree with you we should not simply keep deleting any inactive ones, but at the same time also we should not keep remain passive in not reviving those inactive WikiProjects right? Hopefully by having those inactive WikiProject removed, it will trigger some concerned Wikipedians to revive it again to be active WikiProject :) .. Anynow, feel free to undo my deletion on that inactive WikiProject. I was just simply browsing it randomly (while improving WikiProjects for Taiwan-related articles) and I found out that inactive ones while searching the parents/childs WikiProject of it - sort of.
