out-dated info might be deleted[edit]

Info about soho china is mostly from several years ago. Just got some recent one and update

2015 Tianjin explosions[edit]

Would appreciate some eyes on 2015 Tianjin explosions: someone keeps trying to blank the reliably cited media coverage sections because they contradict the Chinese version of events. _dk (talk) 11:09, 3 March 2019 (UTC)

A neither yes, nor no. As is wont for anything to do with the PRC, the "criticism of media handling" section seems to have grown beyond what is WP:DUE for an article which is not about China's censorship of media. Certainly some mention is appropriate, but it's got a bit bloated. I've trimmed back a couple of particularly extraneous paras. I'm speaking especially of RWB, which is effectively an advocacy group for privately-owned capitalist media and as such tends to make every event in a country that limits press freedom about the press freedom issue. When dealing with a tragedy like this, that's at the very least a little distasteful. That being said, reports of weibuo users being instructed to cite only official casualty figures and "avoid spreading rumours" are due, encyclopedic and actually interesting and should be retained.

I cut the CNN paragraph as being likely without context. I mean it'd not be the first time a pushy CNN field reporter got asked to stop filming in a hospital lobby because they were in the damn way. Simonm223 (talk) 18:18, 5 March 2019 (UTC)

Help with The Wandering Earth[edit]

A new user has provided an excerpt from the end credits of this movie to show that Tao Liu contributed additional music for the score. Do we have any established members that were thinking of seeing this movie and who might be willing to pay attention to the end credits to verify that this is what they say?

In looking at the dispute ([1] [2] [3]), I do not believe the issue is whether Tao Liu contributed to the music, but rather in what way. There are plenty of sources that attribute the music to Liu and Chen: this from Variety and this from the Hollywood Reporter. The basis of the dispute seems to be centered on this question: Should Liu be credited as equal music contributor, additional composer, or having provided additional music? Mkdw talk 16:53, 5 March 2019 (UTC)
Just to clarify - I also did a web search initially, and those sources did not yet come up for me (not created yet or not indexed/highly pageranked, my guess). That was the basis of my suggesting to omit the name entirely, as that might perhaps resolve the conflict. If the person is widely listed as second-named but otherwise equal-ranking to Roc Chen, then we should obviously reflect that. In any case, it doesn't seem to me to be an issue worth arguing over. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Samsara 18:39, 5 March 2019 (UTC)

Hi Samsara and Mkdw, thanks for your help. Actually we are not focusing on the "additional composer" for now as major media such as mTime(the source the other user who keeps doing the vandalism quoted), Douban, and IMDB has Tao Liu listed as Additional Composer, if you still do not believe maybe you can just go see the film and you'll clearly see at the ending roller credit Tao Liu is listed as the additional composer. Variety and some other press, which I believe sourced from Wikipedia for the credits may have not included "additional composer" for Tao Liu because of Wikipedia back then didn't have the word "additional composer" because of the vandalism of the user "Lester1321". The user "Lester1321" is not even focusing on keep changing the "additional composer" word now because now we have valid sources, he is focusing on other ways to attack the main composer by adding slanders for the main composer's music is a plagiarism sourced from his own press platform (soundtrack magazine is his own self-press on Wechat). There're other users such as DannyS712 helping remove his slanders but he keeps adding back on intention to sabotage the main composer Roc's reputation. He and his self-press "soundtrack magazine" is known to sabotage Roc and other Chinese film composers' reputation since a few years ago. Hope you can temporarily protect this page.

Hi Samsara and Mkdw, Wikipedia ZH (Chinese) has already started a temporarily semi-protection for the Chinese wandering earth page流浪地球_(电影) I guess maybe it's easier for them to verify this because a lot of content are Chinese. Wraper11 (talk) 17:24, 5 March 2019 (UTC)

As mentioned previously, several of your requests to have the article semi-protected have been formally declined, including repeated requests at WP:RFPP. Continuing to further request the article be protected may be seen as disruptive and venue shopping. We have other methods of dispute resolution on the English Wikipedia to resolve these types of issues that require consensus building. I strongly suggest you adhere to this advice or you may be blocked from editing; a solution more likely to be used if the issue is confined to one or two individuals, rather than locking an entire article from editing by the wider community. The English Wikipedia has different policies and standards than the Chinese Wikipedia and essentially should be considered completely separate and independent from one another. Mkdw talk 17:38, 5 March 2019 (UTC)

The new issue seems to be whether this is a reliable source. Hoping to get some insights here. Samsara 23:30, 5 March 2019 (UTC)

Oei Hui-lan[edit]

I took over the abandoned review of Oei Hui-lan a while ago, but the original nominator no longer appears active. If someone from this wikiprojet wishes to respond to my comments at Talk:Oei Hui-lan/GA1 that would be great. I will probably close it as a fail if no one responds in a week or so.

Is this a good topic for a new article?[edit]
