Schoolhouse Rock[edit]

Hi, Got Milked! I've reverted your changes to Schoolhouse Rock! because we don't link every instance of a name in an article. Too many links takes away from the specialness! Though seriously, there's a manual of style for when to link. Take a look at MOS:LINK when you get a chance. Thanks for your work, and happy editing! -- SatyrTN (talk / contribs) 06:30, 16 February 2008 (UTC)

Lin Zexu[edit]

Hi Got Milked. I'm reverting the section you added to First Opium War. There are two reasons. First, it is not properly cited (the website you've cited does not say most of what you've added to the section). Second, if you do have a source for the reverence of Lin Zexu (I don't doubt this) that should probably go in the Lin Zexu article or, at best, somewhere in the consequences of the opium war. It does not warrant a section on its own in this article. Please note that I don't doubt the information you have added. My concern is that this is not the appropriate place and that it is not properly cited. --Regents Park (moult with my mallards) 12:21, 23 May 2008 (UTC)

Much better. :-) BTW, Maurice Collis, in his book, Foreign mud, also says a lot about Lin Zexu. Apparently he was already well known because of his work cleaning up corruption in the north (Manchuria, I think). A very interesting man. --Regents Park (moult with my mallards) 21:40, 26 May 2008 (UTC)

I notice you have the same issue in the Opium Wars article. Could you go ahead and make the same changes in that article as well? Thanks! --Regents Park (moult with my mallards) 02:03, 28 May 2008 (UTC)

Liu Xiang[edit]

Thanks for making this edit. I can't believe I didn't pick up that myself. Perhaps the original editor meant to say he was their first men's gold medallist on the track rather than athletics or track and field events in general. I'm not sure if that claim stands up...

In terms of the "unrevealed injury" at the 2008 Olympics, I'm not sure if that's exactly true. I'm pretty sure I remember my own (and the BBC commentator's) opinion was one of surprise that he was even on the start line in the first place (because of the general knowledge that he was injured), and the inevitable walk away when he couldn't run. I think it was the case that the Chinese had sought to underplay his injury in the outside hope that he could compete. I've no citations on this yet so maybe it's all just my own point of view. I'll have a look... Sillyfolkboy (talk) (edits)Join WikiProject Athletics! 15:59, 5 March 2010 (UTC)

The Prefontaine, Olympic preview and Olympic heats reports seem to suggest my ideas are indeed quite plausible, but I guess it will always be a bit inconclusive. Sillyfolkboy (talk) (edits)Join WikiProject Athletics! 16:20, 5 March 2010 (UTC)

Dog meat[edit]

You seem like a well informed and open minded and impartial person. There are these individuals who are trying to control what is directly accessible in the Dog meat article, by deleting my logical and relevant linking of the Horse meat article in its See Also section. I can understand their need to maintain a certain level of white pride and Asian cultural-secessionism by disassociating certain European(and their close-ally/favorite Asian) taboo meat cultures/nations to make an outright disconnect in these taboo meat articles relative to dog meat, which most likely have their largest proportion of consumers in such places as China, Korea and Vietnam: whereas in cat and horse meat consumption, the partiality toward the eastern/central Asians to that of non-Asians is far less(and complicity with Europeans far more) and thus the "Wikipedia controllers" for white pride(and pride of their closest allies and "friendlies"), work to make or delete such edits. But this really has nothing to do with proper presentation of white people's eating habits or how the eating habits of western democracy's closest ally nations should be seen. The inclusion of horse meat in the See Also section should constitute a consistent and simple American(not necessarily objective) and all English-language reader-observation of relevant facts and comparative study to the culture of eating these animals to which American and other "democratized" people should objectively examine without feeling humiliated, like how the editors and Dog meat article-controllers here are doing here by omitting direct reader-access to these relevant articles for comparative examination. Of course, as difficult as it may be for them to accept, the link to horse meat and other relevant "taboo meats" will be included in the See Also section. KulqihanAtqa (talk) 06:20, 24 May 2011 (UTC)

My response to the Dog meat article controversy and whether or not it is permissible or reasonable to include relative linking to the Horse meat and Whale meat articles, as posted on the Dog meat article's discussion page.
This is an interesting debate. My understanding of the See Also sections in all the Wikipedia articles is that it allows a bit more room and flexibility to touch on tangentially-related subjects that would otherwise seem inappropriate or off-topic if directly presented in the main body of the article. This dog meat article seem to be a food-related article, and reference to other similar foods would seem to make sense. See Also is not a hard rule to follow, suggesting only common sense in extending knowledge on the subject, which in this case is not about dogs per se, but the dog as a viable source of meat and protein; albeit an unusual choice for most people in the world. Horse meat is obviously another viable source of meat and protein and also an unusual food choice for most people in the world, which should be an appropriate reference in the See Also section of this food-related article. Whale meat as a source of meat protein should be treated the same, but obviously given special attention for the reason that some of them are vulnerable or endangered species, especially the blue whale; although I don't believe the Japanese or native Siberians and native north Americans, whom are the typical consumers of whale meat, have anything to do with the blue whale becoming over-hunted and endangered. It's interesting to note that even though people who follow Abrahamic religions may have hard rules on what animal meats they may or may not be eat, adherents of Pure Land Buddhism (typically China, Japan, Korea, and Vietnam) and Tibetan Buddhism (also China, fairly commonly among the Han, Manchu, and Mongol ethnic groups) traditionally prohibit human consumption of cat, dog, and horse meats; whereas beef, pork, and poultry are usually permitted. But of course, the most devout adherents of Pure Land Buddhism will abstain from eating any meat animal. Most ethnic Tibetans, at least in the upper-classes, traditionally live in the extremes of the high plateaus where land is not so arable, and had traditionally sustained themselves with an animal meat diet. That's my two-dollars on this issue. Peace :o) Got Milked (talk) 19:41, 24 May 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Babi02Dec2007.jpg[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:Babi02Dec2007.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F10 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a file that is not an image, sound file or video clip (e.g. a Word document or PDF file) that has no encyclopedic use.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion," which appears inside of the speedy deletion ({{db-...}}) tag (if no such tag exists, the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate).

Draft:Zhu Binhou[edit]

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a search with the contents of Draft:Zhu Binhou, and it appears to be very similar to another Wikipedia page: Etienne tsu. It is possible that you have accidentally duplicated contents, or made an error while creating the page— you might want to look at the pages and see if that is the case. If you are intentionally trying to rename an article, please see Help:Moving a page for instructions on how to do this without copying and pasting. If you are trying to move or copy content from one article to a different one, please see Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia and be sure you have acknowledged the duplication of material in an edit summary to preserve attribution history.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. CorenSearchBot (talk) 06:32, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
