Taichung entry[edit]

Firsfron: Thank you for coming to make a contribution to the Taichung page. I am trying to do a complete overhaul of the page to bring it up to to WikiProjects City standards. It is a time consuming process. Unfortunately, I have an unregistered user sabotaging my efforts by reintroducing unsourced and false information.

I have tried to intitiate discussion with him on the talk page, but as yet there is no response.

Your help would be appreciate.

== Ludahai (10/4/06 00:46 UTC/08:46 Taiwan time)

Hi Ludahai,
What seems to be the problem? I'll help if I can. Also, please sign your posts with four tildes (~~~~). Best wishes, :) Firsfron of Ronchester 07:01, 4 October 2006 (UTC)
Hi Ludahai,
Thanks for your note. We rarely semi-protect pages from editing, unless there's some severe vandalism going on from IPs. I'm not really familiar with the subject, but it doesn't appear to me that the anons in question are actually vandalizing. I really recommend that you leave a friendly note on their respective talk pages before pursuing page protection. Just ask them why they're adding what they're adding. Remind them of Wikipedia's NPOV and other policies. If you still have trouble, let me know, but please always try to work it out with the users first. Best wishes and happy editing :) Firsfron of Ronchester 07:56, 5 October 2006 (UTC)
I realise I am a little late in getting here. Ditto what Firsfron said. The anonymous ips are not vandalising in the true sense of the word. However, if you feel the disruption is going on very much, then you might want to check out Requests for page protection where an adminstrator will hear your case and decide. Hope this helps.-- thunderboltz(Deepu) 17:01, 5 October 2006 (UTC)
Thanks for explaining; for someone who knows nothing about Taiwan, it was hard to tell what was happening. I see you have left notes for the anonymous users. That is always the first step in these types of situations. I've semi-protected the page for now; those who wish to contribute can create an account or explain why they edited the page in that manner. Semi-protection is only a temporary solution. Happy editing :) Firsfron of Ronchester 17:07, 5 October 2006 (UTC)

About revert and other notes[edit]

Hello! Welcome in the community! :) I can't protect the page, I'm not an administrator, my request for adminship is being held now. You asked: "Also, how do I revert the page to a previous edition."

You click on the history of the page. You just have to click on the version which you would like to be the current version. And save the page. That's all. Hope it helps. Have a good time here! :) NCurse work 11:40, 5 October 2006 (UTC)

Questions about user page and info boxes[edit]

Hey Ludahai! Here are some answers to your questions. I hope they help. :)

1. I have started working on my userpage. Where is there a list of the boxes that you have on the right of your page? I would like to include relevant ones on mine.

Wikipedia:Userboxes contains a lot of good info, and near the bottom, it has a list of links to places to find specific userboxes, organized in categories. There are thousands of userboxes.

2. How do you create an Infobox? I would like to make one for the TAIMUN conference pages I am working on.

Wikipedia:List of infoboxes gives an overview of the types of infoboxes. You just need to find one that is appropriate to the Taimun conference. :)

3. How do you nominate someone for a barnstar?

No need to nominate anyone, as awarding Barnstars to users is a very informal process. Just stick a barnstar on their talk page, telling them why you're giving them an award. WP:BS gives more info. :)

Good luck with building your userpage, and happy editing! :) Firsfron of Ronchester 22:17, 6 October 2006 (UTC)

Congrats on your 100th edit, Ludahai! "Many happy returns"! :) Firsfron of Ronchester 02:58, 8 October 2006 (UTC)

Taichung International Standard Baseball Stadium[edit]

I have added a category for baseball venues in Japan as well as a stub for baseball. I have also removed the context and uncat templates based on the changes made. You can find additional categories to add by looking at Wikipedia:Categorical index. Erechtheus 14:31, 9 October 2006 (UTC)

Taichung and Barnstar[edit]

Hi Ludahai,

Thanks for the barnstar! So nice of you to give me one. I wanted to say thanks, and also thanks for your many Taichung-related entries. With you editing the pages, the article will look great in no time. :) If you have further issues with the anonymous editors, feel free to leave a note on my talk page, but, as always, try to discuss the edits with them first. Take care! :) Firsfron of Ronchester 04:34, 12 October 2006 (UTC)

I'm actually on a mini-wiki-break but happened to see this. If you believe the article is no longer a stub, please feel free to remove the stub template. Thanks for writing me about it since you believed that I might have a problem with the removal. Erechtheus 12:59, 13 October 2006 (UTC)

Later Jin Dynasty[edit]

There is a problem here. Currently, there is a redirect to send any entries that list Later Jin Dynasty to a page entitled Jin Dynasty. However, there is a Later Jin Dynasty that existed during the Five Dynasties period currently entitled Later Jin Dynasty (Five Dynasties). However, current formatting would make that page difficult to access directly, and there is little justification for the redirect page.

Could the redirect page be deleted so I can rename the existing Later Jin Dynasty page to be consistent with the other Five Dynasties pages? I have been expanding the existing stubs and will be adding pages for the other two dynasties for which there is no existing page.

Thanks. Ludahai 00:55, 16 October 2006 (UTC)

Hi Ludahai!
I've moved the page. Later Jin Dynasty (Five Dynasties) now redirects to Later Jin Dynasty, a simpler and easier title, and something people might actually search for. Best, Firsfron of Ronchester 02:30, 16 October 2006 (UTC)


Thanks, I sure am glad the Lions advanced. The Bulls are formidable, too. It was an exciting round.

I got the seasonal ranking from the CPBL website, and drawn the other information from either my brain or Yahoo! Taiwan. However, I'm not sure what you mean by all time placing, I guess you are refering to the overall ranking/record for a whole season. I actually calculated them from the half-season records from each team, the brute-force and perhaps the only way it can be done. It took me a lot of time to do just one team, and I took it off when you ask me to change the format for the other teams (too mcuh work).

kc0616 08:01, 15 October 2006 (UTC)

I do remember something about the defunct teams, if I have time I will write about them. However, I don't know a lot about TML teams.

The Challenger Cup is the name I gave to the 挑戰盃, loosely translated into "Challenge Cup," and it is post-season. Until the season of 1995, the championship series were played by champions from first and second half-season, and in the event that both half-seasons were won by the same team, the team automatically won the title of seasonal champion. The Challenger Cup was introduced to at least have something in the post-season, but the idea was not all that popular, and attendance was very low. The system of Taiwan Series is somewhat a combination of the Challenger Cup and the Championship Series. Also, the winner of the Challenger Cup recieves no recognition or prize, which is why I considered it an exhibition series.


Taichung City[edit]

Hello Ludahai, I'll have to admit that I signed on to WikiProject Cities, but honestly I spend more time at WikiProject Architecture. I've had a look at this article since you asked, and like what I see, especially that you are citing and referencing. What I would suggest as you make the way toward featured article is to find a couple more sources, try to expand the length of each paragraph, try to merge bullet pointed lists into paragraph form, and merge some sections to reduce the table of contents length. Sounds like a lot I know, but it looks good so far. Maybe also find an overview image of the city, such as image:Shuan 2004 001 Taichung.jpg, which is a little smoggy, but still shows the big picture needed for conveying the sense of a city. I added links to Taichung at the Commons so look around there if you haven't already. You can always post at Peer review for more input. Regards, DVD+ R/W 06:11, 17 October 2006 (UTC)

Sorry I joined the project just a few days ago and know nothing about how the articles should look like. At first glance the only thing I'd like too see changed is a statment if the population is in the city or if it's the metropolitan area that has over 1 million. --Krm500 08:32, 17 October 2006 (UTC)
Hi Ludahai. I'm on a WikiBreak right now, but I'd be happy to look at the article in terms of layout etc, when I return. I'm pretty new to the Cities project, though I have created two other projects (one is a city project). Good luck with it. :) --Mal 01:37, 26 October 2006 (UTC)



Wrong message posted (follows). I will be glad to look at your local city article, and provide comments. mark Vaoverland 17:33, 17 October 2006 (UTC)

Traffic hazard[edit]

On thing about bureaucrats that works is accountability. I recommend that you take the time to write, express your concerns, and share the horror of the 1988 Kentucky incident. It will get some attention, thought, and even possibly, corrective action. Even if not corrected, you will also have a bit of peace of mind that you did what you could instead of silently knowing the hazard and waiting for the "bad one". Mark Vaoverland 17:29, 17 October 2006 (UTC)


International cities are not my area of better stregths, but, hey, we are all learning, right? It looks very complete to me. one thing: Wikipedia has recently gotten intense about citing your sources (WP:CITE). Try hard to get reference data for those note din your article. best of luck. mark. Vaoverland 17:40, 17 October 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for your message. The page looks fairly complete (from my layman point of view), but from a graphic point of view you could perhaps stylise/position your tables (elections, etc) and make some of your pictures larger/more varied. Why don't you simply put the article up for Peer review? Anyhow, looks as though you're almost there. Good luck! THEPROMENADER 21:42, 17 October 2006 (UTC)


That's OK Ludahai, I was honoured to nominate you. Whenever you feel ready to become an administrator, I will gladly nominate you at your request. Auroranorth (your nominator) Auroranorth 10:23, 18 October 2006 (UTC) PS: Well done on the Taichung article.

FYI, when you created 960 disestablishments, I think what you meant was to make Category:960 disestablishments. I've gone ahead and created the new category, and flagged the old page for speedy-deletion. If you intended something else though, please let me know. --Elonka 05:01, 3 November 2006 (UTC)

You're welcome. I ran into the article by accident during a sweep for uncategorized articles, and it was actually fortuitous because I've done quite a bit of work with the establishment/disestablishment categories. If I can help in any way, please don't hesitate to call on me. :) --Elonka

Wang Jian vs. Gaozu of Former Shu as article title[edit]

Hi -- I see your reason for moving the article from Wang Jian to Gaozu of Former Shu. However, using posthumous name or temple name is only done if the person is better known by posthumous name/temple name than by personal name. (See, e.g., Cao Pi for a counter example.) I think Wang Jian is better known by personal name, and therefore the article should be moved back. Thoughts there? (For more information, see Wikipedia:Naming_conventions_(Chinese).) --Nlu (talk) 09:57, 5 November 2006 (UTC)

Taiwan/Chinese Taipei[edit]

Hmmm, that's a tough one. From what I see in the international press they're using the Chinese Taipei name, just like in all other sports involving Taiwan. With you living there I'm sure you are the one that knows the most about all this, but I think, from what I see we need to use the name Chinese Taipei, also on this tournament. We can however make an addition in the introduction of the article on what you are just saying on my talk page, to clarify what is happening. Would that make sense? Anyways, I think it's very nice that you are going there and try to provide pictures. If you can take good pictures or face shots of the Netherlands players that would be much appreciated, so I can use them and start articles about these players. Cheers, SportsAddicted | discuss 06:28, 9 November 2006 (UTC)

My RfA[edit]

Pink rose albury botanical gardens.jpg Hi Ludahai. I wanted to thank you with flowers (well, flower) taking the time to participate in my RfA, which was successful. I regret that I was unable to earn your support at this time and acknowledge on occasion that I, like many editors, find myself being a bit too bold. You can be assured I have taken your comments on board and will work to address them in future. Now, more than ever, please do let me know if I can be of assistance and especially if you spot me making an error. Many thanks once again. Yours, Rockpocket 07:44, 10 November 2006 (UTC)

non existing links[edit]

If a link like Philippines national baseball team does not exist, it doesn't mean that it should not be used. People might get interested in making the article. If you remove it and only link it with The Philippines and the article will be written in the future it will not be a direct link towards the correct article. SportsAddicted | discuss 08:30, 10 November 2006 (UTC)

What does it matter what color a link has? Anyways, the article is created, so you can use it in the article again. Cheers, SportsAddicted | discuss 08:54, 10 November 2006 (UTC)

Wow you are a busy guy. I can see what I can do, I can at least update them, but they won't probably be there minute by minute like you did. I see you are also playing badminton.

US Time, please[edit]

I'm going to put the Daisuke Matsuzaka story back in the Tuesday November 14 Current events:Sports page as it was announced on that day in the USA. NoseNuggets 8:23 PM US EST Nov 15 2006.


I mostly prefer to what the organisation name the national team, well known or not well known is not a matter in Wikipedia, but the official name must be use. Except organisation official site have note it as Taiwan. Or, that is unneeded. --Aleenf1 04:19, 16 November 2006 (UTC)

Sorry, i'm only support what organisations use. Wikipedia is not a political debate channel. And what people don't know? they will know after read Chinese Taipei article, this should be not cause any discussion, if you not make it difficult. --Aleenf1 09:15, 16 November 2006 (UTC)
i'm not consistent, sorry, i'm not think so. List of IOC country codes is only to make clear. You can browse thousand of article use Chinese Taipei, but not note Taiwan behind. --Aleenf1 09:23, 16 November 2006 (UTC)
I'm hypocrisy, haha, I guess you are Taiwanese, so you always say the Taiwan name is true in declaration. However, i'm use the official name, so who is more, try to think about. And this is consider more personal attack and did not respect to what is oficially claim. I'm not sure your in your mind, but if you continue to add Taiwan, as you do in pass. Sorry, i'm not maing way for you. I'm say before, if viewers know why is Chinese Taipei and not Taiwan, they can read Chinese Taipei article, and no need to add Taiwan is thousand piece of article. However, you didn't. You always claim what you do is right. Thinking back, is that really needed if Wikipedia already provide sufficient acknowledgement and viewers can search Chinese Taipei in a second. I'm not agree what you do is right. --Aleenf1 07:00, 17 November 2006 (UTC)
Try to provide example, please (in sports area), where the article shown (taiwan) behind Chinese Taipei (except add by yourself), i'm likely to know. And my english is intermediate, that mean you can help to improve, and not to critics, not everyone is well in speaking English.
They should read why is Chinese Taipei, your adding is right, but you could cause a heavy confusion (indeed new Wikipedians wonder is Chinese Taipei or Taiwan should be use). A wikipedia viewers will access via net (as general) and can read Chinese Taipei, there have complete information, not to add behind Chinese Taipei all, did you know why is Chinese Taipei, did you read that article? not you add Taiwan just from interviewing people? This is Wikipedia, it can link thousand article, and it have policy also --Aleenf1 07:20, 17 November 2006 (UTC)
Sorry, i cannot give you greenlight, i will discuss it first with Admin and show the result to you. No need to reply, i will. --Aleenf1 07:38, 17 November 2006 (UTC)
Many article did not do this, indeed not in basketball and football because this is what WikiProject claim, thats why i'm not give you greenlight, yeah i'm not control but i'm respect to WIkiProject. Whatever you say... --Aleenf1 07:47, 17 November 2006 (UTC)

You no need to request for comments anymore in Asian Games page, link to this page (Wikipedia:Village pump (policy) #Chinese Taipei and Taiwan, the general comment. So, begin this seconds, i'm do my job as in comment. So, your future editing is under my watchlist now. If you want to ask why not use People's Republic of China etc, please talk at Wikipedia:WikiProject Sports Olympics, they is guideline in every Olympic page. Thank you --Aleenf1 10:13, 17 November 2006 (UTC)

Please wait[edit]

I removed the baseball item from the Current Events: Sports page as the date in question had not opened up at that time. Please wait until the date is released (or scroll down to the bottom and click "Edit this page" and place the item in question beforehand.) Thanks. NoseNuggets 3:39 AM US EST Nov 19 2006.

Easy Ludahai, from what I see on your talk page he wasn't complaining about you opening the date (19th), but there was already a section about the 19th hidden in the content page and all you needed to do was making that visible instead of just adding the contant you wanted to share above the current day, that's all. Anyways, NoseNuggets could have moved it to the proper place instead of deleting it. SportsAddicted | discuss 08:18, 20 November 2006 (UTC)
Just try not to get offended too easily, although I understand why you didn't like what happened.

Sepak Takraw? at the 2006 Asian Games[edit]

i was about to create an article for this sport when i came upon a reference that said "Sepaktakraw is the official name of the sport..." spelled one word. the common and more popular way i usually see is the two-word variety. the wiki article for this sport is titled Sepak Takraw. the International and the Asian federation uses Sepaktakraw..what should we use here? can we have a consensus on thisRebSkii 20:13, 25 November 2006 (UTC)

yes i do. i have all the mascots in their respective sports in my computer. however, i'm still waiting for the Doha Asian Games Committee's approval on the use of all mascots. the first mascot given approval (which was made a year ago) was Orry the Sprinter the one used in the main article, and then i asked for the Softball mascot, which was given approval. however, all images have to have approval to avoid copyvio. thanks.RebSkii 16:28, 29 November 2006 (UTC)

Baseball at the 2006 Asian Games[edit]

i'm sorry if i sound stinky but a couple of your statements at the article Baseball at the 2006 Asian Games is POV. please provide citations or reword. thanks.RebSkii 18:36, 2 December 2006 (UTC)

because it is obviously POV. when you say "USA is a medal favorite", it is POV. it has to be presented in a manner without bias or reword in an NPOV manner. Wikipedia does NOT cite sources from it's own articles as per WP:CITE so a wikilink can not be considered a source. also as per WP:NPOV, "all Wikipedia articles and other encyclopedic content must be written from a neutral point of view, representing views fairly, proportionately and without bias." instead of saying "Brazil is a medal favorite in football" rather say "Brazil is one of the powerhouse countries in football" thus, eliminating the idea that only Brazil is the powerhouse country, in a way not eliminating the views of others. according to WP:NOT, "Wikipedia is not a publisher of original thought" "Although current affairs may stir passions and tempt people to "climb soapboxes" (i.e. passionately advocate their pet point of view), Wikipedia is not the medium for this. Articles must be balanced so as to put entries for current affairs in a reasonable perspective. Wikipedia authors should strive to write articles that will not quickly become obsolete." What if Burkina Faso loses it's swimming stance and never recover? then the information that "Burkina Faso is a medal favotire in swimming" becomes obsolete. In the simplified ruleset WP:SR it states "The obligation to provide a reputable source is on editors wishing to include information, not on those seeking to remove it." well it can be a given fact that "Suriname is a medal favorite" but then again, looking at WP:1SP "Even if you think you know something, you have to cite references anyway to prove to the reader that the fact is true." i'm not gonna ask you to remove or delete such statements,it is not necessary, just provide citation-a reliable source at that-which will make the article NPOV - RebSkii 16:59, 5 December 2006 (UTC)

This seems more of a content dispute than actual vandalism, particularly as I note you did not fully revert to the earlier version. I recommend you use a talk page and discuss the situation, if possible. Best wishes, Firsfron of Ronchester 05:03, 6 December 2006 (UTC)

due to the recent act of "content dispute" (which i consider vandalism) at the article Chinese Taipei at the 2006 Asian Games, i will raise this issue to village pump and will propose that anyone who calls ROC/Taiwan/Chinese Taipei as a province of China should be considered vandalism and should be deleted. -- —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Rebskii (talkcontribs) 07:48, 7 December 2006 (UTC).

Papal Numbering[edit]

Recent example: 1978. Hello 'Ludahai' I've seen the Papal succession dates, you've added to the Papal transition years. Though the dates are correct, I found the Papal numbering doesn't add up. If Benedict XVI is (and he is) the 265th Pope, John Paul II is the 264th (not 262nd) & John Paul I the 263rd (not 261st) etc. Your numbering if off by two. GoodDay 23:08, 6 December 2006 (UTC)

Well, if John Paul II is the 262nd Pope & Benedict XVI is the 265th Pope. Who were the 263rd & 264th Pope? GoodDay 23:15, 6 December 2006 (UTC)
Benedict III was Pope from 855 to 858. Again, who were the 263rd & 264th Popes OR is Benedict XVI the 263rd Pope NOT 265th? GoodDay 23:21, 6 December 2006 (UTC)

I may start, to correct your numerical mistakes, alright? There's definitly 2 Popes missing. GoodDay 23:29, 6 December 2006 (UTC)

I've fixed up from John Paul II (1978) to Pius IX (1846), you can take over from there (if you want). GoodDay 23:45, 6 December 2006 (UTC)
You mean, the Vatican (itself) got it wrong? The Vatican, numbers Benedict XVI as the 265th Pope. GoodDay 00:33, 7 December 2006 (UTC)

I'm not disputing you personally. It just strikes me that the Vatican would have the correct numbers. I've asked a third User to join in (the discussion), to help us out with our conflicting sources. GoodDay 00:52, 7 December 2006 (UTC)

Here they are: Page.590 of John A. Hardon's Mondern Catholic Dictionary published 1980 & the Catholic Encyclopedia. GoodDay 01:05, 7 December 2006 (UTC)
Alos see Talk: Pope Benedict XVI#Archive 18. For prevouis Papal numbering debates. GoodDay 01:08, 7 December 2006 (UTC)

Howabout Annuario Pontificio, considered the most authorative list of Popes. On their list,Benedict XVI comes out as the 265th Pontiff. GoodDay 01:16, 7 December 2006 (UTC)

Also see Wikipedia article List of popes. GoodDay 02:04, 7 December 2006 (UTC)
PS- How can I tell you which 2 Popes are missing? When I haven't got your list? GoodDay 02:32, 7 December 2006 (UTC)
I'll check it out (it'll take awhile), don't forget to count up the Popes on the List of popes. GoodDay 02:38, 7 December 2006 (UTC)
I found the Pope, and I should have known. Benedict IX is the solution, the Vatican recognises Benedict IX as the 145th, 147th & 150th Pope. Benedict IX served 3-nonconsecutive reigns as Pope. So the Pontiffs (by reign) add up to 265 (Benedict XVI included). Yes Benedict XVI was the 263rd person to serve as Pope, however he's the 265th Pope. GoodDay 03:09, 7 December 2006 (UTC)

I'm signing out, for the night. Hope my findings help, perhaps we can pickup this discussion tommorow. GoodNight. GoodDay 03:27, 7 December 2006 (UTC)

Hello, I'm back. You have to count Benedict IX three times. That'll straigten out the numbering. GoodDay 15:33, 7 December 2006 (UTC)
Here's the example: 144th - John XIX; 145th - Benedict IX; 146th - Sylvester III; 147th - Benedict IX; 148th - Gregory VI; 149th - Clement II; 150th - Benedict IX; 151st - Damasus II. GoodDay 15:41, 7 December 2006 (UTC)
I've corrected the Papal transitional years, 1045, 1046, 1047, 1048 & 1049. From here on out, all pontiffs after Leo IX, will have to be re-numbered bringing the total up to 265. GoodDay 16:21, 7 December 2006 (UTC)
Have begone to re-edit Post Leo IX transitional years, beginning with 1055. GoodDay 21:59, 9 December 2006 (UTC)
Ended correction at 1159 Pope Alexander VIII's election. Will continue in future. GoodDay 22:28, 9 December 2006 (UTC)
Make that, Pope Alexander III. GoodDay 23:25, 9 December 2006 (UTC)

Chinese Taipei Baseball[edit]

As I noted on the talk page, I agree with the change because it includes information from the pre-Chinese Taipei in historical sporting usage. I have proposed the insertion of more historical information to further justify the name change. ludahai 魯大海 23:14, 8 December 2006 (UTC)
Can i say i support the name change. Aight, i would like to put an infobox for the artivle but i havent got an idea how to create it. I have also gather some sources for you, please find them in the external link section. Changchih228

Papal Numbering II[edit]

Hello Ludahai, I've completed the re-numbering of the Popes (numberings backed by Vatican). Now it adds up to 265. GoodDay 21:27, 13 December 2006 (UTC)

RE:Hengchun Earthquake[edit]

My pleasure. I actually just noticed a slight problem with your move, in that you capitalized "Earthquake". I believe that WP:MOS or some other guideline suggests that it should be lowercase. :-/ Gzkn 09:41, 27 December 2006 (UTC)

Asiad template[edit]

hi ludahai,
can i ask you to check the asiadappearances parameter of the Asiad template in Chinese Taipei at the 2006 Asian Games? i'm not sure if the information i put is correct. i merely based the infos on wiki articles. i'm not sure if your country participated as Taiwan. thanks and more power. --RebSkii 19:07, 8 January 2007 (UTC)

WikiProject Cities Participation[edit]

Hi, your name is on a list of active members for WikiProject Cities. We have recently revitalized the project by including an article assessment department. Presently there is a great deal of work to complete in rating/tagging all of the 1000+ article which have not been assessed or tagged with the new {{WPCities}} banner template. Further, we have made changes to {{Infobox City}} that require some formatting changes in the articles that use the template. Your assistance at this time of change would be greatly appreciated. 15:52, 26 January 2007 (UTC)

AfD nomination of TAIMUN V[edit]

An editor has nominated TAIMUN V, an article on which you have worked or that you created, for deletion. We appreciate your contributions, but the nominator doesn't believe that the article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion and has explained why in his/her nomination (see also "What Wikipedia is not"). Your opinions on whether the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with the article are welcome; please participate in the discussion by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/TAIMUN V and please be sure to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~). You may also edit the article during the discussion to improve it but should not remove the articles for deletion template from the top of the article; such removal will not end the deletion debate. Thank you. Please note: This is an automatic notification by a bot. I have nothing to do with this article or the deletion nomination, and can't do anything about it.

Helping out with the Unassessed Wikipedia Biographies[edit]

Seeing that you are an active member of the WikiBiography Project, I was wondering if you would help lend a hand in helping us clear out the amount of [unassessed articles] tagged with {{WPBiography}}. Many of them are of stub and start class, but a few are of B or A caliber. Getting a simple assessment rating can help us start moving many of these biographies to a higher quality article. Thank you! --Ozgod 21:14, 23 February 2007 (UTC)

Stub Article Expanded for Southern and Northern Dynasties Article[edit]

Hi, I'm new to joining wiki. I have a question: besides telling you and making you aware here, how do I report that I expanded a stub article so that it can be removed from the stub list? I recently expanded the Southern and Northern Dynasties article (citing my source), since it was a pathetic stub that sorely needed expanding (lol). I added two new sections: the Northern Dynasties and the Southern Dynasties; I hope you like the improvements!

--PericlesofAthens 05:42, 19 March 2007 (UTC)

Nevermind about that! After reading the "help" link where the stub notice was located in the article, I found out what to do. It is a stub no longer...

--PericlesofAthens 06:08, 19 March 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for the welcome, I will contribute more soon once I find some stubs that are in dire need of expanding.

--PericlesofAthens 16:02, 19 March 2007 (UTC)

Hi Again[edit]

I just expanded the "Far East" section of Painting by about 90% (lol), with a new History of Chinese Painting sub-section. It looks very good now, two new pics within the body of paragraphs, and two external links to pics located in the Freer Gallery of Art in the Smithsonian Museum, Washington D.C. (the latter two are exceptionally good, two of the best examples of Song and Ming era paintings that I've ever seen).

--PericlesofAthens 23:56, 19 March 2007 (UTC)

Needing Help With Photo Copywright[edit]

Hi once more, I have a question about a recently uploaded photo that I want to use for Liuhe Pagoda of China. The article lacked any picture, and it really needs one, considering that it is one of the greatest Song Dynasty (or any) Chinese pagoda standing today.

The image is found at this link here:

If you would be so kind, I'd like to have you or somebody else verify the copywright license (it's some random American guy's vacation blog pic). In the meantime, I have given it the GFDL presumed tag, but if I do not verify the copywright stuff, it will be deleted in 7 days!

Thanks for your help, --PericlesofAthens 05:58, 23 March 2007 (UTC)

Article Vandalized[edit]

After a lot of work on the article that I have done, someone has just vandalized the Song Dynasty article. I hope nothing is truly lost, because every time you try to open the page, the only thing that comes up is this: "The Song Dynasty is very cool. What it is? I don't know Stop asking me!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!! retard." I also put a lot of work into the Tang Dynasty, and here's what the Tang Dynasty says when you open the page.

".kjchdfgkjflkdsjfids crap poop caca popp" - most disturbing about this one is, when you go to edit the page, there is nothing there except this message.

I don't know if everything is lost because of that, but I hope not. Can you reques to have this page locked to new users and non-members? I put a lot of work into it, and I hate to see it all go to pot because of some useless prick.

--PericlesofAthens 16:06, 26 March 2007 (UTC)

-->Nevermind, they've been fixed. But I would like to request that they be protected, just how the Zhou Dynasty article already is.

Peer Review for Song Dynasty[edit]

Hi again. I know I've been leaving you a bunch of messages and all, but this has been going out to several others. Recently I've put a considerable amount of work into the Song Dynasty article. I've gotten a bit of feedback from others, but I'd like to get your views, opinions, and suggestions on it. It's very close to featured article status in my opinion, but if you could also offer your advice, it would be appreciated. Thanks.

help wanted[edit]

I need your help. I am a new member of wikipeida. I find the article of "Tibet" or "history of tibet" in wikipeida is very biased towards pro-independent Tibetans. I have strong evidence to prove what I said. I made some edit and added some important facts. However, they are deleted. The problem is: I am not familiar with the rules of wikipeida and I probable won't have time to get familiar with it. So, I need your help so that truth can be known by people. You can find my deleted versions in the history of that topic. The main source of my information is in the following. This is probably the most complete and detailed information source on the Tibet issue. But it is not listed in the reference list of Tibet page yet. I remember the content of this website is from Chinese government’s white paper on Tibet issue. If you go to the official website of Tibetan in exiles, you will find that although they are very unhappy with these information. They could not point out any major problems about these facts. It would be better if you can have a quick look of this website and add whatever information you want.

"The historical status of tibet", by China internet information center. It cab be found at the website of:

Many thanks.



Hi, sorry about renaming the article before engaging in the discussion. I wasn't aware of any previous agreement or consensus in the talk page. I think it is more NPOV and consistent to use the official name in the title. The main logo in the page also seems to use the official name. Please reply to the discussion in the talk page here.

Need translation[edit]

Hi ludahai. I hate all of these online translators, none of them are particularly good. I was wondering if you could help me out with improving info on Shen Kuo's article. The present English wiki article lacks information on Shen's married life, yet the Chinese version has this to say:


I know this has something to do with his two marriages, both ending tragically, but I can't make out exactly what's being said. Could you help me out? That would be incredibly awesome. Lol. Thanks.--PericlesofAthens 23:50, 13 May 2007 (UTC)

This drive was conceived of and organized by Psychless with the help of Ozgod. Regards, Psychless Type words!.

Biography ratings[edit]

Hi, I've been checking the logs of the Biography project, and I've come across several of your ratings. Apparently, you've missed the part that articles have to undergo a formal review before they can be assessed as GA, A, or FA class. These reviews can be found at WP:GAN, WP:BIOAR and WP:FAC. Please do not rate articles above B-class unless that status is approved in a formal review (for which you can find the procedure in the links I provided). Thank you. Errabee 16:17, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

Ludahai, I'm not sure why you "stubbed" the "Barry Wellman" article. What more would you suggest be added to it? BTW, I've spent wonderful times at the university in Taichung. However, my friend Hsung Ray-May has moved to Taipei. Bellagio99 15:12, 7 June 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for your helpful reply. How do you format an article like this? Is there a suggested template? And I've had different advice re focus. I recently edited Scott Tremaine and an admin (admittedly newly minted) didn't like it when I put in his marriage to another notable person -- claimed I should have focused on Tremaine's achievements. And so it goes. Bellagio99 23:48, 7 June 2007 (UTC)
thanks yet again for your instructive reply. It seems quite do-able. One more Q: is there a biographical info box template somewhere that I/we can use.? Bellagio99 15:35, 9 June 2007 (UTC)

Harry Danning[edit]

Hi. Given your request for discussion of the Harry Danning page, I would bring your attention to the deletion of the Fangraphs url. I believe this lowers the quality of the article.

Assessment Drive[edit]

Since you seem to the most active assessor I was wondering if you would like to take on a big group of assessments. That group would be everyone with the first name: John. I have no idea how many articles that is but I do know that James had about 300-400 articles. If you'd just like to continue working on C that's fine, but I do suggest you get Outriggr's script. Psychless 16:59, 29 June 2007 (UTC)

That's fine. But his script is relatively simple to set up. Go to Special:Mypage/monobook.js and copy the following code:

// User:Outriggr/metadatatest.js importScript('User:Outriggr/metadatatest.js'); assessmentMyProjects = ["WPBiography"];

You can add this line if you don't want the script to mark your assessment edits as minor:

assessmentMarkAsMinor = false

Read User_talk:Outriggr/metadatatest.js over throughly. Two more useful scripts can be found here, only one if you're using wikEd. Hope this helps, contact me if you have any questions. Psychless 02:23, 30 June 2007 (UTC)

Fan Zhongyan and Wang Anshi[edit]

Hi Ludahai. I have to commend you on your edits to both the Fan Zhongyan and Wang Anshi articles while wikifying, expanding them, and adding references. However, just a day after your edits to Wang Anshi's article an automated bot tagged the article with four different citations needed tags. I wish I owned Mote's book Imperial China, but unfortunately I do not, so I cannot add proper citations to the information you added in order to get rid of the citation needed tags. I just thought I'd let you know, so that you can remedy the situation with your copy of Mote's book.--PericlesofAthens 12:14, 30 June 2007 (UTC)

A Question[edit]

As of today I have managed to raise the article Technology of the Song Dynasty to Good Article Status. Now (hypothetically speaking), if you were me, what would you do to this article in order to elevate it to that golden status as one of Wikipedia's Featured Articles? Any comments would be appreciated.--PericlesofAthens 15:49, 1 July 2007 (UTC)

Sandbox of your own[edit]

I was just reading your old comment on talk:Liao Dynasty that said you would be improving the page and that it would look a bit disorganized until you were completed. Did you know that you could create a subpage from your user page in which you can experiment and write entire articles without it being posted into the main wiki community? It's basically your own private Wikipedia:Sandbox. But your work won't ever be deleted (that is unless you do it yourself). If you want to know how to create one, please go here. Just check out my user page to see my sandbox. I thought you could use your own sandbox to finish writing out your material before adding it to actual articles.

Taiwan CWB[edit]

Taiwan, to my knowledge, is not a full member of the JMA. What makes Taiwan's CWB unofficial? It is official here in Taiwan! ludahai 魯大海 13:44, 16 August 2007 (UTC)

The WMO-designated RSMC overseer for the region is Japan's Meteorological Agency. For every country within the region, their respective national met service is official within their own land and waters. Therefore you in Taiwan should continue to listen to the CWB, just as how someone in the Philippines should listen to PAGASA. However, for the whole region - which is what this article is for, the whole Pacific west of the date line - the JMA's analysis is the top-level. I hope that clears it up a little. Feel free to ask if you need more clarification. Cheers, Chacor 14:00, 16 August 2007 (UTC)
We include the local met service links as a courtesy. For the region, regardless, the worldwide officially-recognised top-level agency is Japan, and we observe that and follow that. Also, specific to this storm, CWB is calling it much lower than Japan, or Philippines, or China, or the JTWC. I'd say they're underestimating it (in my own opinion). The top-level agency for the region is Japan, and it has been since 1989. While we can include a link to the CWB to use their inaccurate (and officially unofficial, if that makes sense) data would not be right.
Again, like I said. This is the 2007 Pacific typhoon season article we're talking about, NOT 2007 Taiwan typhoon season. The only official agency we should be following is the JMA (and we only include the JTWC as a comparison to the United States standard of measuring winds, which is significantly different from the rest of the world). Chacor 14:10, 16 August 2007 (UTC)
It's not our fault nor Japan's fault that the CWB isn't a WMO member. HOWEVER - we use the official internationally-accepted information. Remember, Wikipedia is international. And the internationally accepted information in this case comes from Japan. We should not be including internationally unofficial information. I appreciate that the CWB is official in Taiwan - just as PAGASA is official in the Philippines, the CMA is official in China, the HKO in Hong Kong et cetera. But we don't include any of their information, only a link. Why should Taiwan be any different? There's only one RSMC. Chacor 14:17, 16 August 2007 (UTC)
The only scenario where we would include information from the HKO, or CWB, or PAGASA (et al) is if they're the only ones warning on the storm. Can we please continue discussing the potential addition before you add it? Chacor 14:23, 16 August 2007 (UTC)

I should point out that China, Hong Kong etc. all do their own analysis separate from the JMA, and sometimes disagree greatly with the JMA. But we never include their individual storm information. I do have one compromise, if you're willing - we'll include the position estimate from Taiwan, but not the winds. Seem fair enough? Chacor 14:25, 16 August 2007 (UTC)

There is no consensus for the addition of any local storm warning information except from the JMA and JTWC. You will have to seek a consensus if you wish to add any additional information. Like I said, a good compromise would be to put where CWB says the storm is located. But if there are differences in intensity, safety first, we should go with the higher number. Chacor 14:29, 16 August 2007 (UTC)

The consensus has been established before that we should, as far as possible, only include RSMC information. For now I've brought this up as a wider issue at the main wikiproject talk page to re-gauge consensus. Chacor 14:36, 16 August 2007 (UTC)

I've removed the Taiwan WikiProject listing as the article isn't specific to Taiwan. A better idea would be to form a WikiProject Asia that could cover the whole continent, as that would be more accurate to the article (like how WikiProject Africa has 2006-07 South-West Indian Ocean cyclone season tagged). Chacor 02:12, 17 August 2007 (UTC)

That is horribly POV. Then you have to include the wikiprojects for Japan, China, Korea, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, Micronesia, Singapore, Vietnam, etc. All of them. If you add Taiwan, you should add all of the rest too. Chacor 02:27, 17 August 2007 (UTC)
"You have no right to determine what belongs or doesn't belong in another WIkiProject." And what gives you any other right to say this belongs there? You only have two rights on Wikipedia, to fork or to leave. No one has any rights to anything, not even freedom of speech. Wikipedia is freely editable. Either play by the rules or leave. Chacor 02:33, 17 August 2007 (UTC)

The discussion showed that there was no consensus to include CWB information. The compromise was before wider discussion took place. Consensus is to remove. Might I also remind you of our key policies WP:CIV and WP:NPA. Your most recent post to my talk page violates both. I've not attacked you personally at all. You should accord the same courtesy per Wikipedia policy. Chacor 07:50, 17 August 2007 (UTC)

King Clancy Trophy FLC[edit]

Which whitespace do you want me to get rid of? If it's the one to the right of the tables, I'll try some solution, but it might now work, as the thing that is usually put there is images, and if you don't have enough free ones, then I'm out of look, probably. Maxim(talk) 11:50, 9 September 2007 (UTC)

I've added a history heading, so I should just expand a bit more? Because I'm trying to find free images from Flickr, and there's been no luck yet. Maxim(talk) 12:07, 9 September 2007 (UTC)
I've done, to the best of my ability, both of the FLC's improvements. Feel free to comment more. Maxim(talk) 12:44, 9 September 2007 (UTC)
I've addded some comments to it, take a look :) Maxim(talk) 20:25, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

Ouyang Xiu[edit]

Just so that you are aware, the hold on your GA nomination Ouyang Xiu is half expired. Cheers, CP 22:05, 29 September 2007 (UTC)

Well, Ouyang Xiu has been on hold for seven days plus the time of the original hold, and it seems to have grown stale. Unless I can be convinced otherwise, I might have to fail this nomination for now. If I do choose to do that, remember that it can be re-nominated at any time once my concerns have been addressed. Cheers, CP 15:06, 9 October 2007 (UTC)

Re: Ouyang Xiu[edit]

The three references I added (22, 24, and 25) were all fine already, I think. I went through and fixed up some web refs that had been added since I last worked on the article. However, something needs to be done about the separate references section at the bottom. I prefer having the complete refs as part of the footnotes (I think this is called "Chicago Style"). The way it is now, we have no way of knowing how several of the refs in the separate section were used in the article, as there are no footnotes for them.--Danaman5 04:34, 30 September 2007 (UTC)

Proposing merge of Geneva International Model United Nations , Harvard United Nations simulations, National Model United Nations into Model United Nations[edit]

Hi, I saw that you were discussing inclusion of articles for individual conferences, so I thought I would let you know that I'm proposing a merge of those conferences' articles into one section in the Model United Nations article. Thanks; Wikimancer (talk) 00:08, 9 April 2008 (UTC)

Re: Kalmaegi[edit]

You wrote "Kalmaegi made landfall at Ilan County in northwest Taiwan in the evening of July 17 at 19:40 local time (13:40 UTC)". JMA reported that the storm was downgraded from a typhoon to a severe tropical storm at 2100z (UTC), 7 hours and 20 minutes later. [3] Thus, at 1340z, when Kalmaegi made landfall on Taiwan, it was a typhoon by the JMA. The "Current Storm Information" had the wrong name for some reason. -- RattleMan 06:22, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

No, I don't know who is working on the main article. Good luck with getting those pictures. -- RattleMan 10:37, 19 July 2008 (UTC)

Kalmaegi article[edit]

Hi there, the article coming along ok. It is already on wikipedia though its in my sandbox Located Here. Thanks for the tip off about you updating the section with fresh links i will take a look in a couple of minutes. If you do find somemore links it may be worth leaving me a note on my talk page as i am also looking at few other things aswell as kalmaegi. Jason Rees (talk) 22:51, 27 July 2008 (UTC)

Re: Fung-wong[edit]

How is the storm where you are? It just picked up here about 30 minutes ago after what is left of the eye passed just south of us and now we are getting the back side of the storm and have lost our protection from the mountains. Do you want to lead making the article for this storm? I am willing to do it, but I am not experienced at writing tropical cyclone articles. ludahai 魯大海 (talk) 07:24, 28 July 2008 (UTC)

I know Taiwan is hard-hit by the storm, but at least we say that my location is affected by the storm... Yesterday here was a day of almost unstoppable rain until night came, as the storm-intensified southwest monsoon (See it here...) brought us rain. (Oh thank God, the weather's improving here today...) Here is what shall we do: We'll make the effects of Fung-wong in Taiwan be the priority and we'll sideline the effects of the storm in the Philippines. Agree??? -Pika ten10 (talk) 07:38, 28 July 2008 (UTC)

Let's wait to see the havoc this wrecks in Fujian. China may well suffer worse from this than us. For all of the flooding and landslides, I have yet to hear of any fatalities (pray to God that it stays this way.) China often gets far worse casualities and damage than we do even though it will be a tropical storm by the time it gets there - BTW, I think with Taiwan's next advisory at 5:30, it will be downgraded to a tropical storm. My prayers to you and your compatriots. I have a lot of Philippine friends here from Church. We often send aid down there and I am sure we will again after this storm. ludahai 魯大海 (talk) 08:10, 28 July 2008 (UTC)
I hope you're all right there in Taiwan... It's again raining here... By the way, I want you to hear our President's State of the Nation Address today. She's performing it right now! Before that, do you have any power??? My prayers and thanks for your help. -Pika ten10 (talk) 08:50, 28 July 2008 (UTC)
We are ok here, though the weather has definately gotten worse the past few hours. I heard your president gave a speech. I admire her for doing the right thing even when it isn't easy to do. We have such a joke here for a president, it is driving me nuts. To my surprise, this storm is still being reported as a typhoon. This does NOT bode well for China. ludahai 魯大海 (talk) 11:09, 28 July 2008 (UTC)
The rain has gone now... And we have classes tomorrow. As you know, we have our classes in elementary and high school suspended. (I'm still a graduating high school student.) Our president here is brilliant, yet our congressmen here (most of them are her political allies) are very corrupt. As such, she's generally unpopular here, as evidenced by the protests even during the time she was rendering her speech! -Pika ten10 (talk) 11:22, 28 July 2008 (UTC)
If you want to reply, you can just send me an e-mail at I hope you reply there!! -Pika ten10 (talk) 11:25, 28 July 2008 (UTC)


I have written various articles on Chinese literature, art and aesthetics, which I am qualified to write. A nutty wiki editor named Enfermero has initiated a war against me. Please beware her. She has no understanding of China,Japan and Korea.--Iwanafish (talk) 10:33, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

<<SIGH>> The user immediately above Iwanafish does not play nice. A review of my contributions will show what I have done. His behavior also shows his contributions. Enfermero (talk) 07:19, 7 June 2009 (UTC)
I forgot to mention this was in reference to Ouyang Xiu and other related articles where warning templates were placed. See Iwanafish's user discussion page under the section Ouyang Xiu for more information. See also the Ouyang Xiu discussion page. I think that article can reach GA status after some minor issues are resolved. Enfermero (talk) 09:03, 9 June 2009 (UTC)

Biography Rating: Cameron Richardson[edit]

You previously rated the biography page for Cameron Richardson as stub class. I have made efforts to improve the article and think it might be C or B class (possibly higher). I would appreciate if you could take the time to rate the article again. Criticism is also welcome, feel free to comment on Talk:Cameron Richardson -- Horkana (talk) 19:34, 2 December 2009 (UTC)

Ouyang Xiu[edit]

Hello, Ouyang Xiu is now stable and ready for GA reevaluation. I would be happy to nominate. Enfermero (talk) 22:44, 31 January 2010 (UTC)

RE: Tainan City[edit]

Hi Ludahai,

I'm planing to make some change to Tainan city's history and further. But current Tainan's history looks like a big dumping ground with all the unstructured paragraphs float around confusing people. To me I might just integrate some of the usable information into my version and copy the rest into discussion page. Do you think its doable? Because I am a first time editor in Wikipedia and I find it annoying changing others' work.

It would be very great if you can give me a hand on this.

Feyhsiang (talk) 15:25, 28 March 2010 (UTC)

There are a lot of story to tell about Tainan city and they are mostly close related to Tainan county as well. I spent one year worth of bedtime reading to go through Chinese, Japanese and American versions of the city history. So I don't expect you to go through all these before helping me out.

Just if I am going to change anything it would make it look very different to what it is now. So I am seeking your advise if it is appropriate to change other people's work. Like move current one into discussion page and integrate current usable reference into my version etc..

Like we don't usually put

Tainan claims more Buddhist and Taoist temples than any city in Taiwan.

in history it should be in city culture or demographic and we don't put a whale exploding event in the history as well. Also we don't usually use an actual quotation like that. In this case I would put it into the reference or prepare a paragraph to talk about the infrastructure in Ching dynasty etc..

Soo... Just wondering from your experience what would be the best way to start.

Territorial Disputes in the South China Sea[edit]

Hi Ludahai, per your comments on the talk page above I too have multiple concerns but the issue is a much wider one. Please see my comments here and here where I'm trying to do something about it. The problem with all these related articles is that POV based edit wars can start in a heartbeat, particularly when we get a new IP user who has an axe to grind on behalf of China/Taiwan/the Philippines/Malaysia/Captain Kirk or whoever. That's why I think an FAQ is a good idea because it will potentially save an awful lot of wasted time. I'd be interested in your thoughts.

Ouyang Xiu - copyright issue?[edit]

The poem in the article Ouyang Xiu seems to have been copied directly from [4]. While the FAQ for the site seems to allow individual users to download and archive for their own use, it's not clear from the site if the author would allow Wikipedia to use an entire poem in this way. Can you shed any light? Frenezulo (talk) 00:49, 26 November 2017 (UTC)

Ludahai, Frenezulo, unless it an be shown that the English translation of the poem is out of copyright, we can't host it here, so I believe it is right that it was removed. Unfortunately, there seems to be another problem: some phrases in text added in 2007 are copied (more or less) directly from Frederick W. Mote (1999). Imperial China: 900–1800. Cambridge, MA: Harvard University Press. Examples are "a succession of magistracies in the provinces" and "submitted a ten-point proposal". These are relatively isolated phrases, but we still can't just copy from someone else's published work. The page will need some rewriting to eliminate any copied material.
