Galleries of notable individuals in infoboxes of articles about ethnic groups[edit]

Just a heads-up: a globally-advertised RFC (WP:NOETHNICGALLERIES) has been closed with a decision that galleries of notable individuals should be deleted from infoboxes of articles about ethnic groups. Several articles within the scope of this project will be affected. Kanguole 17:13, 4 January 2016 (UTC)

When I go to the link it just takes me to the general MoS page. I'm not seeing the new rules and/or RfC. WhisperToMe (talk) 10:17, 11 January 2016 (UTC)
The link has since been switched to the "Images for the lead" section of the MOS/Images page. Point 4 of that section is the relevant one, and includes a link to the RFC. Kanguole 11:26, 11 January 2016 (UTC)

Bad page moves[edit]

Can a sysop please fix these recent unilateral moves? They're nonsensical: mainspace articles have now been moved to WP-space for some reason, and there's all sorts of bad capitalisations. The moves were undiscussed and don't follow any sort of consensus. The page should belong at East Asian cultural sphere. --benlisquareTCE 07:32, 15 January 2016 (UTC)

@Benlisquare: OK, I think I've taken care of it. Please let me know if I missed anything. Best,  Philg88 talk 08:00, 15 January 2016 (UTC)
I think the talk page (currently at Talk:East asian sphere) also needs to move back. Kanguole 10:52, 15 January 2016 (UTC)
Yes, there's still the talk page. Other than that, I think everything's covered. --benlisquareTCE 11:05, 16 January 2016 (UTC)

Help with citation[edit]

Hello everyone! I have been working on Heart with some other editors and we have reached a loggerheads when finding sources for the "Society and culture" section. I would be very grateful if an editor knowledgable here could help correct and cite this paragraph about the Heart in Chinese history:

The Chinese character for "heart", 心, derives from a comparatively realistic depiction of a heart (indicating the heart chambers) in seal script. The Chinese word xīn also takes the metaphorical meanings of "mind, intelligence", "soul", or "center, core". In Chinese medicine, the heart is seen as the center of shén "spirit, soul, consciousness".

Hoping to hear from you soon! --Tom (LT) (talk) 03:22, 5 February 2016 (UTC)

The first sentence, without the parenthetical, can be cited from Qiu, Xigui (2000), Chinese Writing, Jerry Norman, Gilbert Mattos, trans., Berkeley: Society for the Study of Early China; Institute for East Asian Studies, University of California, Berkeley, p. 178.   White Whirlwind  咨  22:31, 6 February 2016 (UTC)
