BankRakyat - Bangsar LRT Station[edit]

Hi Joshua, saw your move on BankRakyat - Bangsar LRT Station. I am of the view that BankRakyat - Bangsar LRT Station while named after Bank Rakyat does not have the spacing as per your move. If you see the stationboard also, there is no spacing there. Would you review your edit there ? Superfast1111 (talk) 14:51, 17 October 2015 (UTC)

The name on the station board is the logo of Bank Rakyat, which is a stylized version of the bank's name. English media in Malaysia (New Strait Times, The Star, Malay Mail, The Rakyat Post), as well as a media release from Prasarana all include the space in "Bank Rakyat-Bangsar".--Joshua Talk to me What I've done? 16:08, 17 October 2015 (UTC)

Article upgrade assistance request (Pre-translation stage)[edit]

Seasons Greetings,

This is in reference to a relatively new umbrella article on en-wikipedia named Ceremonial pole. Ceremonial pole is a human tradition since ancient times; either existed in past at some point of time, or still exists in some cultures across global continents from north to south & from east to west. Ceremonial poles are used to symbolize a variety of concepts in several different world cultures.

Through article Ceremonial pole we intend to take encyclopedic note of cultural aspects and festive celebrations around Ceremonial pole as an umbrella article and want to have historical, mythological, anthropological aspects, reverence or worships wherever concerned as a small part.

While Ceremonial poles have a long past and strong presence but usually less discussed subject. Even before we seek translation of this article in global languages, we need to have more encyclopedic information/input about Ceremonial poles from all global cultures and languages. And we seek your assistance in the same.

Since other contributors to the article are insisting for reliable sources and Standard native english; If your contributions get deleted (for some reason like linguistics or may be your information is reliable but unfortunately dosent match expectations of other editors) , please do list the same on Talk:Ceremonial pole page so that other wikipedians may help improve by interlanguage collaborations, and/or some other language wikipedias may be interested in giving more importance to reliablity of information over other factors on their respective wikipedia.

This particular request is being made to you since your user name is listed in Wikipedia:Translators available list.

Thanking you with warm regards Mahitgar (talk) 05:19, 24 October 2015 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for November 12[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited AH2, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Khosravi (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.

Translation help?[edit]

Hello,

I saw your name on the Chinese>English translators page, and I was wondering if you could help me with this. I have written an article on Ying'an Airlines and have been using Google Translate to translate and understand Chinese news articles about the airline. There is an important notice about this airline from the CAAC whose translation I can't fully understand. Could you please summarise it for me, particularly the reason why Ying'an Airlines lost its licence? The website is here. Thanks!! Sunnya343 (talk) 19:30, 17 January 2016 (UTC)

Request translation[edit]

Hello Joshua. I would like to request a translation of an English article to Chinese. It is a short article and I have already translated it to Greek but I want it translated to more languages. Could you help me? Irene000 (talk) 10:14, 27 April 2016 (UTC)

Hi Irene, you didn't say that which article you need help translating, based on your contributions I guess it's about Fabio Mancini? I am busy with real life at the moment, I would probably help if it's something that I am interested in, but it appears that it isn't the case here so I think I'll pass.--Joshua Talk to me What I've done? 14:39, 28 April 2016 (UTC)

File:Yin-Sheng Tang.jpeg.jpg[edit]

Hi, Joshua. Could I ask you to have a look at the file File:Yin-Sheng Tang.jpeg.jpg and tell me what it is and what it's about? I gather it's a poster demanding clemency for 湯英伸 in his murder case. The uploader has claimed it as his or her own work, but I have some difficulty believing the uploader created this image; rather, I imagine that he or she simply created the scan of the image and has confused that with "own work". Anyway, what's your opinion? -- Rrburke (talk) 12:06, 9 May 2016 (UTC)

Hi Rrburke, you are right, it is a petition for clemency for 湯英伸, who was convicted for the murders of his employer, the employer's wife and daughter. Google Image search yields a result [1] stating that it was a full page ad printed on the 自立晚報 newspaper dated 12 May 1987. The image currently on Commons is a cropped version of the image as seen on the result page, and the Commons image has a watermark 國立臺灣大學法律學院 National Taiwan University College of Law. My guess is that the uploader found the image on the university's website and uploaded it to Commons.--Joshua Talk to me What I've done? 14:00, 9 May 2016 (UTC)

Translation help[edit]

The "Mazu Cultural Palace" in Songjiang's Fangta Park, where you can get free soy milk and youtiao if you show up at the right times.

Since you were kind/foolish enough to have your name on this list, here's a note that I could use some help with the mess of Mazu temples in Shanghai. There were three; the first two were destroyed; the third got moved to Songjiang and rebuilt; and then as of 2014 Zhabei was considering rebuilding their old one. So:

If you have time and interest for any, some, or all of that, great and please leave a note here saying so. I'm asking all the listed Chinese translators for help, so we wouldn't want anyone needlessly duplicating work. — LlywelynII 02:42, 22 November 2016 (UTC)
