ITN recognition for Yang Jiang
Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Zhang Yue (politician), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Ministry of Public Security (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). 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.
Hi! Long time! I'm finished with the "Members" table on the 17th Central Committee of the Communist Party of China.. Could you add their ranks? If so, thanks! :)
I'll be working on the alternate table as well!
- Thanks! I have a question for you (I'm currently adding the heads of department-level institutions); who was Head of the General Office of the Central Leading Group for Financial and Economic Affairs in the period 2007-2012? I have no bloody clue...
- I must add, It's impressive that only two pages on full members are missing from the 17th CC. Great work! :) --TIAYN (talk) 07:09, 21 June 2016 (UTC)
- I cannot claim full credit for the 17th CC articles - they were mostly created by another user. As for the head of the finance and economics office - that was Zhu Zhixin before Liu He. Zhu served for the entirety of the term of the 17th CC so that makes your work a bit easier. Another thing I noticed - some of your "positions held" were inaccurate. In particular, anyone who is holding an NPC or CPPCC committee position generally held another post prior to their position in those largely symbolic bodies. You should check to see what positions they held for the majority of the duration of the 17th CC ; normally this would not be a ceremonial position. Anyway, thanks for the great work. Are you going to cover the alternates also? Colipon+(Talk) 14:50, 21 June 2016 (UTC)
- That's the plan.. However, for the 16th CPC the plan is to have tables without offices held. The further back in time you go, the harder it is for me to find information... But yes, I'll try to fix it.
- question, could you find out when Zhang Xiaolin (Qiushi editor-in-chief) was born? I can't seem to find it :P --TIAYN (talk) 15:19, 21 June 2016 (UTC)
- For anything dating back to the end of the Cultural Revolution it is definitely possible to find what offices each person held. They only became more institutionalized after the 16th Congress. During the Cultural Revolution Mao basically just picked his list personally. There is no publicly available source that reviews Zhang Xiaolin's age, unfortunately. So we may have to leave that blank. Colipon+(Talk) 15:46, 21 June 2016 (UTC)
- I think you're being overly critical of Mao. While you may be right that that was the norm during the Cultural Revolution, I doubt it was the norm before then... In either case, even if you're right, they don't have a list anywhere as far as I know of who held which office in the, let's say, 13th CC. That's a problem for me. And even if we were to find such a list, the most important thing is the tableization of the CC lists. --TIAYN (talk) 21:40, 22 June 2016 (UTC)
- You are right that Mao was probably far more "decentralized" and "democratic" during his earlier rule, particularly pre-PRC and pre-Great Leap Forward. It's what encouraged people like Peng Dehuai to speak out against him. 13th CC would be interesting - that was a tumultuous time during Chinese politics (Tiananmen, etc.); it may be better to work on that one next, instead of the 16th CC, which is not all that interesting. I can help you gather the data on the positions. You might be using ChinaVitae, but I know better Chinese-language sources. All you have to do is start and I will fill in the blanks. Colipon+(Talk) 13:15, 23 June 2016 (UTC)
- OK, I'll jump to the 13th CC after the 17th CC. --TIAYN (talk) 17:33, 24 June 2016 (UTC)
- Could we make a deal? If I create the tables on all the CC lists, that you add the posts each individuals held in the office column and their rank? I'm sure that we would accomplish our task much faster that way.. The 17th CC "Alternate member" list has been uploaded to the 17th CC (but is missing offices and rank). Good idea? --TIAYN (talk) 06:56, 25 June 2016 (UTC)
- ...and this guy? 克尤木·巴吾东 --TIAYN (talk) 23:04, 3 July 2016 (UTC)
- My best guess for the 'correct' transliteration is Kuyum Pa'ud; I have been trying to find a reliable Chinese-to-Uyghur-to-Latin script transliteration method, to no avail. As for the Tibetan, I am really not sure. I think Tenzin is a closer approximation to how the name is pronounced in Tibetan. Colipon+(Talk) 13:06, 5 July 2016 (UTC)
You're going to hate me :) I just pinyinified (no diacritical markings tho) Peking into Beijing in the PRC article.
My thinking is this : The name of the city has always (okay, except for when it was bei ping) been bei jing. It was even beijing in wade-giles, except almost no one knows how to correctly pronounce wade-giles ! So in effect, pinyiniffying this particular word is actually a correction of a mispronunciation.
Is that okay by you ?
Oh. I've been snooping, sorry. About Falun Gong, you will never win. You are fighting the CIA. No, I don't have a tinfoil helmet. Research COINTELPRO. Don't be naive, they never quit. It works too well. 188.8.131.52 (talk) 10:45, 4 July 2016 (UTC)

Asian 10,000 Challenge invite
Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Asia/The 10,000 Challenge has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge and Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The 10,000 Challenge. The idea is not to record every minor edit, but to create a momentum to motivate editors to produce good content improvements and creations and inspire people to work on more countries than they might otherwise work on. There's also the possibility of establishing smaller country or regional challenges for places like South East Asia, Japan/China or India etc, much like Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). For this to really work we need diversity and exciting content and editors from a broad range of countries regularly contributing. At some stage we hope to run some contests to benefit Asian content, a destubathon perhaps, aimed at reducing the stub count would be a good place to start, based on the current Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon which has produced near 200 articles in just three days. If you would like to see this happening for Asia, and see potential in this attracting more interest and editors for the country/countries you work on please sign up and being contributing to the challenge! This is a way we can target every country of Asia, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia. We need numbers to make this work so consider signing up as a participant! Thank you. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 01:30, 20 October 2016 (UTC)
