24 character Zhou
Hello there! Over at the 24wiki we are trying to determine if Zhou's full name is Zhou Yong after all. A fellow user found a sound clip here, http://www.angelfire.com/planet/gatty790/zhou.mp3, and it seems that Cheng Zhi is addressing Zhou. I was just curious: how many times do you recall Zhou addressed as Yong? More importantly, because you speak Chinese: what are the odds that Cheng could be saying something else? I can't determine anything because I don't speak a syllable of Chinese, and your expertise would be perfect. Thank you for any help! Blue Danube 17:35, 28 May 2007 (UTC)
- Thank you for the reply on my talk page. I figured I'd post here in response: have you tried copying and pasting the link? http://www.angelfire.com/planet/gatty790/zhou.mp3 - Sometimes clicking them doesn't work all the time. If you can hear it this time, please let me know what you think. And thanks again for the info you had earlier. Blue Danube 02:40, 29 May 2007 (UTC)
- Good news, if there was any doubt about what you heard, it's gone now... the release of the 24 Trading Card Game confirmed that Zhou Yong was his actual name! Blue Danube 23:46, 15 October 2007 (UTC)

Hi, didn't you read the "discussion" page for Ar Jiao before moving the page? You should have, and contributed there first. The first syllable is "a" according to Wiktionary. http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/%E9%98%BF If no response on the "discussion" page of Ar Jiao I am moving the page back. Badagnani 03:06, 28 October 2006 (UTC)
Thank you. But the right way would have been to contribute to "discussion" at that article first. Badagnani 04:41, 28 October 2006 (UTC)
Zhou Tong comic book
Have you ever heard of the comic book Zhou Tong Zhuan Qi (Chinese: 周侗传奇)? I came upon it while I was doing research for my Jow Tong page. This website seems to have covers to all ten volumes of the comic book. I can’t read Chinese (I used an internet translator), so I was wondering if you could possibly find a good description of it and add the material to the article's "Literature" section.
This website mentions that the "Legend of Zhou Tong" was made into an opera (or it could mean the comic book came from the opera). If a scholarly page about this opera could be found, the info could be added to a "theatre" section. (Ghostexorcist 11:11, 20 March 2007 (UTC))
- The comic book takes place before Zhou takes Yue as his disciple. One chinese blog page says this about the comic book: "这套书籍讲述了他从投军到剿灭太湖水寇，抵御辽军，最近归隐，传授技艺于岳飞的一生经历。"
- I have a feeling that Zhou Tong's wuxia biography was based upon this comic book. The descriptions of both sound similar and one of the covers from the comic book is exactly the same (plus more detail and color) as one from his biography. It features what I can only assume is a young Zhou Tong tugging on a ladies leg under water. I have my own copy of Zhou’s fictional biography, but my Chinese literacy is embarrassing at the moment. You can view the book's cover here. (Ghostexorcist 18:43, 20 March 2007 (UTC))
- I know the Zhou Tong from the Water Margin is a different person, that’s why I added his name to the top to cut down on confusion. I also know the novels and comic books about Zhou are new. I believe his fictional biography was published in 1986. I’m not sure when the comic book was made. I would like to write a book on Zhou when I gather enough info about him. I wrote 99% of the Yue Fei page. All of Yue’s biography info used to be on Zhou’s page. (Ghostexorcist 19:08, 20 March 2007 (UTC))
I know you are the person who created the interwiki Chinese Zhou Tong article. I was looking at some of the sources for that page and I was wondering if you could look up the person who provided the info for this source:
The page says the info came from here:
I can’t say that I trust a blog, but I would like to know where this person got there info. If it came from a wuxia novel or some type of published folktale, I want to know its source. Thanks. (Ghostexorcist 02:06, 9 April 2007 (UTC))
My Zhou Tong (archer) article just passed Featured article. I've seen a template on English language articles that says it's foreign language version passed FA and should be used as an example in order to expand the English version. Do you know if the Chinese wiki has that same template? I think the Chinese Zhou Tong page needs to be expanded a little more.(Ghostexorcist 19:24, 21 July 2007 (UTC))
- Nevermind. I just saw the Chinese page and it has a similar template. (Ghostexorcist 19:28, 21 July 2007 (UTC))
- Can you please change the date of Zhou's death on his Chinese article. 1040-1119 is a fictional date created by the author of Yue's fictional Wuxia biography. I have historical info that states he died in 1121. --Ghostexorcist 23:59, 6 August 2007 (UTC)
DIY translation is OR?
It's not; my error. See WP:NOTOR#Translation and contextualizing. I've undone my own undo on the article. Mea culpa (DIY translation: "my bad"). Would you be good enough to review the NOTOR essay, and make sure you're in line with it, especially the "Any original translations should be faithful, to the point of literalness; if interpretation is called for, it should be explicitly in parenthetical notes." It would be best if you could incorporate the original Chinese text, and your translation of it, into your footnote. Thanks, and sorry. TJRC (talk) 01:02, 27 August 2008 (UTC)
Ouch. First of all, I haven't seen anyone saying someone's edit was wrong. They just change it. Second of all, I would much perfer constructive critisism. By the way, can you tell me the correct charachters for the word. I really want to know leujohn 09:24, 16 September 2008 (UTC)
