Wiki Loves Pride[edit]

You are invited to participate in Wiki Loves Pride!

  • What? Wiki Loves Pride, a campaign to document and photograph LGBT culture and history, including pride events
  • When? June 2015
  • How can you help?
    1.) Create or improve LGBT-related articles and showcase the results of your work here
    2.) Upload photographs or other media related to LGBT culture and history, including pride events, and add images to relevant Wikipedia articles; feel free to create a subpage with a gallery of your images (see examples from last year)
    3.) Contribute to an LGBT-related task force at another Wikimedia project (Wikidata, Wikimedia Commons, Wikivoyage, etc.)

Or, view or update the current list of Tasks. This campaign is supported by the Wikimedia LGBT+ User Group, an officially recognized affiliate of the Wikimedia Foundation. Visit the group's page at Meta-Wiki for more information, or follow Wikimedia LGBT+ on Facebook. Remember, Wiki Loves Pride is about creating and improving LGBT-related content at Wikimedia projects, and content should have a neutral point of view.

This campaign is about adding accurate, reliable information to Wikipedia, plain and simple, and all are welcome!

If you have any questions, please leave a message on the campaign's main talk page.

Thanks, and happy editing!

Kumai River[edit]

Hello, this article, supposedly a tributary of the Gaoping River, does not provide any sources, and I have trouble matching it with any sizeable tributary of the Gaoping River (or any river in Taiwan). Chinese WP does not list anything resembling this among the tributaries. I am inclined to think there is no such river in Taiwan, but without knowing the real Chinese name it is difficult to be sure. Can @Dr. Blofeld or somebody else help? Micromesistius (talk) 10:47, 12 June 2016 (UTC)

Resolved, it seems. wctaiwan (talk) 16:20, 12 June 2016 (UTC)

Another strange river: Lotsao River[edit]

Does @Dr. Blofeld or anybody else know this river? "Luodong River" (羅東溪) in Yilan is the only one that comes close but does not look right... Micromesistius (talk) 11:48, 19 June 2016 (UTC)

Um, Dr. Blofeld, I think it might be a good idea to go over your geography stubs. This would be the third if it turns out to be unverifiable like the other two before it. I'm concerned we're propagating incorrect information. Have all these been created in a similar fashion or from a single source? If that's the case, it would at least be worthwhile to take a look at the others in the series. wctaiwan (talk) 18:53, 19 June 2016 (UTC)
I used an existing list on wikipedia when I created them. If you're spotting a few duds you should look into who created List of rivers of Taiwan! Remove the Lotsao from being a tributary of Yilan then. I suspect it's a mispelling of something.♦ Dr. Blofeld 06:37, 22 June 2016 (UTC)
A User:WilliamDParker created the list in 2007 from Zh: wiki. Look at the history. Perhaps you'll find the river listed on Chinese wiki and spot a mistranslation?♦ Dr. Blofeld 06:40, 22 June 2016 (UTC)
Thanks. I'll see if I can dig around a bit this weekend. wctaiwan (talk) 04:17, 23 June 2016 (UTC)

Southern Ming and Tungning[edit]

More views would be welcome at a discussion at Talk:Ming dynasty#Southern Ming and Tungning on whether the Kingdom of Tungning should be treated as part of the Southern Ming. Kanguole 15:35, 11 July 2016 (UTC)
