Hello, welcome to Wikipedia. There is a lot of work that can be done at the T'ai Chi Ch'uan pages, especially providing biographical info for all the names which currently show up in red, such as Yang Shaohou, etc. I also seem to be unable to find the Unihan character for the power generation "Lu" for the Pushing hands article. Eventually, I would like to have duplicate Wade-Giles and pinyin articles all around. Any help or suggestions will be appreciated.
Here are some useful links in case you haven't already found them:
- How to edit a page
- How to write a great article
- Naming conventions
- Manual of Style
- Wikipedia Policies and guidelines
If you made any edits before you got an account, you might be interested in assigning those to your username. If you have any questions, see the help pages, add a question to the village pump or ask me on my talk page. I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian.

Hi Taichiseeker. We currently have two versions of the same article (T'ai Chi Ch'uan and Taijiquan (pinyin article)) in order to avoid problems between those who prefer pinyin and those who prefer Wade-Giles. They are cross-referenced, so it is easy enough for someone who wants to check the other version to switch back and forth. This helps to avoid the inelegant and confusing mixture of different romanization schemes in the same article, a problem endemic to articles relating to Chinese culture. I hope this helps.
