Territorial disputes in the South China Sea article[edit]

Disambiguation link notification for August 9[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Flag of East Turkestan, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Gülen (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.

2016 Aleppo campaign talk page[edit]

Could you please stop adding all those massive links at the 2016 Aleppo campaign talk page? Some editors have already asked what's the point of all of them and they are really not helpful because they are clogging up the talk page. Thanks in advance. EkoGraf (talk) 15:58, 19 August 2016 (UTC)

Stop adding blatant POV material[edit]

Could you please stop adding blatant POV material such as this? I see that you have been doing this for a long time. If you continue I will make sure that you get blocked. --Lemongirl942 (talk) 03:02, 22 August 2016 (UTC)

Your edits btw violate WP:UNDUE and I noticed that it is a pattern. I would suggest you to stop it. --Lemongirl942 (talk) 03:09, 22 August 2016 (UTC)
This as well. How is cherry picking a few sayings and putting in the article not WP:UNDUE? --Lemongirl942 (talk) 03:21, 22 August 2016 (UTC)
You are attacking and labeling content as POV because YOUDONTLIKEIT The content was removed by ip address 178.84.148.238 on false grounds, not on POV basis, the ip claimed " Source was unreliable". The source was written by Professor of Chinese and Central Asian history James A Millward at Georgetown University and the book was published by Stanford University Press. You failed to explain how content which shows the demographic composition of a city at its foundation on an article about that city is "POV" and "UNDUE". Deleting reliably sourced material on false premises is an offense which can be punished by banning.
Cherrypicking assumes that the source has quotes of the opposite POV. It's not possible to cherrypick when everything in the source is the same POV. The author is a scholar, specializing in Muslim societies and teaches history at Simon Fraser University [1] [2] [3] If it is blatant POV material then the whole book and author are blatantly POV and go write a letter to Simon Fraser Univeristy, because books written by university scholars are considered RS on wikipedia. The author is not criticizing religion. He said the Quran protects womens status but claims it is their culture which oppresses women and is embodied in those quotes. Ildikó Bellér-Hann is a Professor at the University of Copenhagen and teaches on the history and anthropology of Central Asia. The If you have an issue with the POV of her work go complain to the University of Copenhagen.
When I used a source that had two different POVs I included the opposite pov for balance in content that I wrote- "who were married were called mazlūm among Turkic Muslims in Xinjiang, however, divorce and remarriage was facile for the women". Islamic law was being violated by the temporary marriages which particularly violated Sunni Islam. "was criticized by the Uyghur Christian Nur Luke, who abandoned Islam" "Fundamentalist Islamists prevent Uyghur women who are infected with HIV from getting drugs for their condition" It was specifically emphasized who was doing the criticizing in case of POV bias by the source, and "fundamentalists" were doing a particular action, and that temporary marriage violated religious law. If the opposite POV is not represented in a reliable source, then its not cherrypicking.Rajmaan (talk) 08:12, 22 August 2016 (UTC)
I'm curious. You are claiming that you don't see any problem in this edit? --Lemongirl942 (talk) 08:54, 22 August 2016 (UTC)
It's kind of hard when all the sayings you can find are of one POV [4] [5] Negative proverbs dominate in the culture. The society is conservative and patriarchial Are you suggesting- to manufacture revisionist history and create some made up matriarchial proverbs just to balance the POV? Are the Foot binding and Purdah articles POV?
You still haven't explained why the demographic history of a city is POV.Rajmaan (talk) 19:12, 22 August 2016 (UTC)

Uyghurs and Khotan[edit]

Again, you keep adding huge chunks of stuff on articles without checking their relevance or importance. Why do you add information on Kashgar to article on Khotan? Why do you add detailed information on Khotan onto a general articles about Uyghurs? A general article about a people cannot include all the minor details about a particular place, or it would become a gigantic article impossible to read. Please learn to trim you edits and make sure that they have significance and pertinence on that article. Hzh (talk) 12:13, 22 August 2016 (UTC)

Shrine worship is practiced generally across Altishahr and its important part of their Sufi worship. The mazar of Afaq Khoja is near Kashgar. Afaq Khoja Mausoleum The mazar of Sultan Satuq Bughra Khan is in Artush. Its not a Khotan specific feature. I just had some sources about Khotan based shrines.Rajmaan (talk) 18:57, 22 August 2016 (UTC)
The point is still the same that you are bloating the article with unimportant details. Quoting a huge chunk from an old travelogue does not tell us anything about the current situation and is not very enlightening, and you should desist from doing that in the articles you are editing. And please stop adding huge chunk of urls - learn to trim the url, and don't overcite per WP:OVERCITE. Hzh (talk) 20:15, 22 August 2016 (UTC)

Copying within Wikipedia requires proper attribution[edit]

I see you are still not adding the required attribution, as required under the terms of the CC-by-SA license. Please have a look at this edit summary as an example of how it is done. Please let me know if you still don't understand what to do or why we have to do it. Thanks, — Diannaa (talk) 19:38, 24 August 2016 (UTC)

Repeatedly adding COATRACK to articles[edit]

How this this even relevant to the article. You keep adding a bunch of WP:COATRACK to articles. Can I request you to actually review our policies and guidelines? --Lemongirl942 (talk) 00:39, 25 August 2016 (UTC)

Full references for chapter in edited book, please[edit]

Hi Rajmaan;

Just a quick note to say that I both continue to admire your work in finding references that nobody else has found and also agree with those who say that they are not always relevant to the particular places and that they are often redundant.

But my main point is that a reference to a chapter in an edited work should include the author and title, not just the editor and title of the volume. The author deserves the credit, and readers need to know who wrote the reference, not just the editor of the volume.

A good example is the Fairbank reference in the Boxer Rebellion article.

Somebody with more knowledge than I might have a better way, but I found the Encyclopedia template works. The documentation is at Template:Cite encyclopedia

In our case, for example, the full reference (leaving out the url, for convenience) is:

{{cite encyclopedia|first = Immanuel C.Y. |last = Hsu |article = Late Ch'ing Foreign Relations, 1866-1905|editor=John King Fairbank|title=The Cambridge History of China|url= | publisher = Cambridge University Press|isbn=978-0-521-22029-3|page=127}}

This produces:

Hsu, Immanuel C.Y. "Late Ch'ing Foreign Relations, 1866-1905". In John King Fairbank. The Cambridge History of China. Cambridge University Press. p. 127. ISBN 978-0-521-22029-3. 

And by the way, although I have suggested that posting bare url's is not a good practice, I do very much appreciate the trouble you went to in finding the Hsu reference and supplying the url to the page in question.

All the best, ch (talk) 17:36, 26 August 2016 (UTC)
