Now that the previous RM resulted in no consensus, can you do another RM instead? You came up the idea of "turbulence", so I think I'll leave the proposal to you. --George Ho (talk) 01:07, 1 April 2016 (UTC)

Hans-Joachim Lang article in progress[edit]

Thanks for explaining my errors on my first try at DYK. Submitted too early and my name in a place that wanted the name of the creator of the article -- I was not claiming that status, just misunderstood the boxes. I will watch for when the article is in what you call the main space, and try again with a new form, correctly completed, which I hope is the correct next step re DYK. The Lang article grew out of edits to Natzweiler-Struthof (the only WWII concentration camp in modern day France) and Jewish skeleton collection, both with many references to Lang's recent work, with several editors updating and improving the two related articles. N0TABENE put Lang's article together, to be sure. --Prairieplant (talk) 11:07, 2 April 2016 (UTC)

Actually, Prairieplant and I worked on the article together, but I submitted the draft. It was based on translations of existing articles on the French and German Wikipedia, with additional sources. It was submitted for review 10 days ago (March 23). Most of the other articles I've written were reviewed within several hours - how can we get this article reviewed and uploaded to the mainspace?? Thanks. NotaBene 鹰百利 Talk 23:24, 2 April 2016 (UTC)
@Prairieplant and N0TABENE: Thanks for the explanation. I'll give the draft some extra time to be reviewed. However, next time please submit articles for DYK after they're already accepted for the mainspace. -Zanhe (talk) 00:42, 4 April 2016 (UTC)
Zanhe N0TABENE modified the article for a stronger focus on Lang and not just his most major work, The Names of the Numbers. The topics related to The Names of the Numbers are now subsections under that heading and Lang's other works are in a separate section, not just the list of his bibliography. We have both searched on line for more biography on him (he must have a mother and father and do more than his journalism and faculty work, as busy as that might keep him) and found just a little to add. It was not put there are at first because it seemed not so important. We keep searching, know this is a start. I found an interview with Lang, but it talks about how he faced the various turning points in his research for The Names of the Numbers (when he first met a relative of one of those people -- how would they react to what he had learned, what drove him to do the difficult research to turn the numbers into names, and is he satisfied now. In short, all about his work, adding nothing to biography. I keep thinking, there must be more interviews with a publication written in several languages now, and of importance immediately to both Germany and France, as well as to the relatives of the people named and the lesson for all of us in the world, but those interviews are not popping up yet. Please take a look to see if that is more the shape of an article you were expecting. I appreciate your comments, so clear and so quickly made. I write here, because I do not think there is a place for me to say more at the DYK nomination page. Like taking that 70 years ago phrase out of one alternate, though Hirt has been infamous for 70 years, I see it is one phrase too many in the "hook". But the alternate is there and more concise. Reviews by others are informative and instructive in this process. --Prairieplant (talk) 22:39, 5 April 2016 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Weng Songma[edit]

A tag has been placed on Weng Songma requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section R2 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a redirect from the article namespace to a different namespace except the Category, Template, Wikipedia, Help, or Portal namespaces.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Stefan2 (talk) 10:44, 4 April 2016 (UTC)

@Stefan2: The redirect was automatically created when I moved an invalid article back to the author's userspace, and I agree it should be deleted. @MSGJ: I see that you've replaced the speedy tag with a redirect to Wang Dongma, but I don't think that's a valid redirect. Weng Songma is not a plausible typo for Wang Dongma. Cheers, -Zanhe (talk) 16:52, 4 April 2016 (UTC)
Actually the artist Wang Dongma does not appear to be notable either, so I've initiated an AfD here. -Zanhe (talk) 16:57, 4 April 2016 (UTC)

Bodybuilding in China[edit]

Yo, it's been a while. Have been busy irl, so rate of activity has slowed. (Wonder if I can get the Weiqi Devil fixed in time) Anyway, quite pleasantly surprised that Bodybuilding in China netted that many views. Do the 23000+ views for 13 April count towards views for DYKSTATS? In any case, having garnered some 27,554 views on 12 April, it has become the April DYK leader :D Kingoflettuce (talk) 15:13, 14 April 2016 (UTC)

@Kingoflettuce: Wow 50K views, that's really impressive! You can add it the DYKSTATS all-time leaders list, and it'll be among the all-time top 10 for non-lead hooks.

Help with chinese political templates and articles[edit]

Hello, Zanhe. I accept your apology, it was clearly a computer glitch. The mistake was corrected within a span of 3 minutes, so please do not be frustrated over this. I am now creating English-language articles for articles in other wikipedias (currently I am creating them for the Spanish wikipedia). I was going to ask you to fill in the templates for the Jilin and Heilongjiang regional leaders. They are currently incomplete. Some of the politicians who have been leaders of the people's congresses and cppcc committees do not have English language articles. The articles Politics of Jilin, Politics of Fujian and Politics of Qinghai need to be expanded with lists of People's Congress Chairmen and CPPCC Committee Chairmen.

Requesting assistance with Li Yuru[edit]

Hi! I created Li Yuru today and was wondering if you knew her name in Chinese characters or hanyu pinyin. Thanks. Howkafkaesque (talk) 22:39, 8 May 2016 (UTC)

Never mind - one of the sources listed her name in Chinese characters. Howkafkaesque (talk) 02:06, 18 May 2016 (UTC)
@Howkafkaesque: Sorry for not being more helpful, I've been taking a long wikibreak. Glad you've been able to figure this one out. I'll try to be more responsive next time. Cheers, -Zanhe (talk) 05:43, 10 September 2016 (UTC)

Your GA nomination of He Xiangning[edit]

Hi there, I'm pleased to inform you that I've begun reviewing the article He Xiangning you nominated for GA-status according to the criteria. Time2wait.svg This process may take up to 7 days. Feel free to contact me with any questions or comments you might have during this period. Message delivered by Legobot, on behalf of CaroleHenson -- CaroleHenson (talk) 02:01, 31 May 2016 (UTC)

hey[edit]

Hey Zanhe, you suddenly dropped off the radar at the end of April - hope everything is still going well for you. Regards. _dk (talk) 05:46, 4 July 2016 (UTC)

I noticed that you had not been active and came here to see. Best wishes in any case. ch (talk) 04:08, 23 July 2016 (UTC)
@Underbar dk and CWH: Sorry for dropping out without a notice. I only meant to take a short travel break in May, but found the the extra free time liberating, so I decided to leave Wikipedia for a while and resume my long-postponed goal of finishing The Cambridge History of China. I'm aiming to finish reading all the remaining volumes by the end of the year, and hopefully resume my normal editing early next year. Cheers! -Zanhe (talk) 05:24, 10 September 2016 (UTC)
Good to hear! I've long waited in vain for my library to get the new volume 5 part 2 on the Song, perhaps you can tell me if there are any explosive revelations. Cheers! _dk (talk) 08:39, 10 September 2016 (UTC)
Just don't then decide to finish off Needham's Science and Civilisation!
As you go along, you might think about the question raised at The Cambridge History of China of whether to include the TOCs of each volume. I agree that this would be cumbersome, but it would be useful to readers if there were some way of doing it. Just a thought.ch (talk) 16:07, 10 September 2016 (UTC)

Your GA nomination of He Xiangning[edit]

The article He Xiangning you nominated as a good article has failed Symbol oppose vote.svg; see Talk:He Xiangning for reasons why the nomination failed.

10,000 Asia Challenge[edit]

Hi, I wondered if you'd be interested in joining Wikipedia:WikiProject Asia/The 10,000 Challenge based on Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge and Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The 10,000 Challenge? The idea is to showcase the work being done on wikipedia across the continent, and inspire more people to create and work on countries which might not usually get much attention and then possibly running some contests to bring in new editors. I know it's very existence will definitely make me more likely to contribute more on China and other countries. Could be a way to highlight work needing doing for China and draw in new editors! Or perhaps set up a 1000 Challenge for China feeding into it? Not sure, but if interested add your name to the participants and I'll consider setting something up later in the month.♦ Dr. Blofeld 20:29, 8 October 2016 (UTC)

Thank you for your work on Chinese airports. — Sunnya343✈ (háblamemy work) 03:23, 3 January 2017 (UTC)
@Sunnya343: Thanks for your work as well, especially Guilin Qifengling Airport, which had been on my to-do list for a while (a lot of WWII content about Qifengling was wrongly posted at the new Guilin airport). Unfortunately I haven't had much time to work on Wikipedia recently. Hopefully we'll collaborate on something in the future. Cheers, -Zanhe (talk) 18:16, 11 January 2017 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

China barnstar.png The PRC Barnstar
I imagine you've probably seen this star on your talkpage a few time... still, here's another for your collection. Thank you very much for your help in tidying up Zhen Dexiu, Wei Liaoweng, and other Neo-Confucianist pages recently; your expertise is much appreciated. Yunshui  08:59, 13 January 2017 (UTC)
this WikiAward was given to Zanhe by Yunshui  on 08:59, 13 January 2017 (UTC)
@Yunshui:, thank you, but you're the one who really deserves the barnstar for writing the much needed articles for the famous Neo-Confucianist scholars! For the past year I've been spending most of my spare time reading The Cambridge History of China and haven't got much time to contribute to Wikipedia. When I'm done (still got four volumes left) I plan to continue my unfinished project of creating articles for all of Confucius' major disciples. Cheers, -Zanhe (talk) 16:23, 13 January 2017 (UTC)
I look forward to that; read quickly! Yunshui  22:01, 13 January 2017 (UTC)
