ISO 963-6[edit]

Hi Justin,

I see you're adding ISO6 codes to some of the language articles. That's fine when they have no ISO3 code, but I worry it might be problematic otherwise. The people who developed the ISO6 standard are completely ignorant of comparative linguistics, so they aren't a reliable source. The web site is broken, and has been ever since it went up, so it's not a very useful source either. Also, listing several codes without explanation of how they differ, as you did at Xiang Chinese, is not helpful to our readers, nor is repeating the ISO3 code in the ISO6 field. I think it's probably best to be cautious in adding ISO6 codes; maybe you could start a discussion at WP:LANG if you're planning on putting a lot of time into it? (On the other hand, there are cases like Manx, where ISO6 makes a useful distinction between historical and revived Manx.)

Also, please don't remove "none" from the ISO3 field. It's there to indicate that the language is not covered by an ISO code. Removing it will generate errors that will just need to be reviewed and fixed.

Thanks for the reminder, Kwamikagami. I will be more cautious when adding ISO6 codes to articles. Justinrleung (talk)

Disambiguation link notification for September 18[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited List of common Chinese surnames, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Chu (surname) and So (surname). 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.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
