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)

Possibly, but it won't be in the next few days; I think I might not be able to get to it until next Sunday. If someone else is interested, let him/her have a crack at it... Thanks. --Nlu (talk) 03:32, 22 November 2016 (UTC)
@LlywelynII: I still like to be helpful, but I think it's a bit challenging for me. Can you break it down to chunks, and see if there is a particular passage you'd like me to translate? I think I'd work better that way (in a subject that is not an area of my expertise, in particular). --Nlu (talk) 16:42, 27 November 2016 (UTC)
Thank you for your kind words and interest in being helpful, but, eh, it already is chunked. If it's mafan or nothing caught your eye, that's fine and anything important'll get added sooner or later. — LlywelynII 11:38, 28 November 2016 (UTC)
OK, sorry. I will take another look when I get a chance, but the article has some disputable facts. I guess what I would do is, when I have time, start translating the paragraphs one by one and then let you deal with it editorially? --Nlu (talk) 16:58, 28 November 2016 (UTC)
@LlywelynII: I think what I'm going to do is to try to translate it one paragraph at a time, and deposit the translated paragraphs into User:Nlu/sandbox/Tianfei Palace (Songjiang). Feel free to go ahead then plug them in, or to wait until I am done. (Although, I hope, based on just the first three paragraphs, which I am hoping to be done this afternoon, but then might not be able to revisit for a couple days, that this article cannot be simply adopted into the text due to its argumentative nature and use of language.) --Nlu (talk) 00:40, 30 November 2016 (UTC)
@LlywelynII: Added another paragraph. --Nlu (talk) 17:20, 3 December 2016 (UTC)

  • Following the latest RfC concluding that Pending Changes 2 should not be used on the English Wikipedia, an RfC closed with consensus to remove the options for using it from the page protection interface, a change which has now been made. (T156448)
  • The Foundation has announced a new community health initiative to combat harassment. This should bring numerous improvements to tools for admins and CheckUsers in 2017.

Happy CNY! I have created Talk:Wu_Zetian#Requested_move_3_February_2017. I think "Wu Zetian" as a title is very similar to Li Houzhu, Meng Houzhu etc. Timmyshin (talk) 01:09, 3 February 2017 (UTC)
