Formatting[edit]

Thanks for adding several missing articles. You don't necessarily have to clear out the clean-up tags - they're there to notify other editors of articles that may need to be formatted to become more suitable as an article. For a general guide to formatting for Chinese-related articles, see: Wikipedia:Manual of Style (China-related articles) & Wikipedia:Naming conventions (Chinese). See: Du Fu as an example of excellent formatting for Chinese-related articles. Hope that helps--Confuzion 23:21, 17 May 2006 (UTC)

Confuzion, Thanks for the help and advice. I personally would like to see characters and numbered pinyin become the norm (recommendations I made in "MOS for China articles"), but I do not expect this to become the norm!

Notes on Pinyin[edit]

Hi, thanks for your contributions on the Chinese mythology page. Just a few notes about Pinyin.

1. The Pinyin for 女媧 is "Nüwa" not "Nuwa". "女" is pronounced "Nü" as in "Nyu", not "Nu" as in "Noo".

2. When denoting a Chinese word or phrase by Pinyin, it is represented with one "word". If it is a proper noun, only the first letter is capitalised. Thus, its "Hanyu Pinyin", NOT "HanYu PinYin", and thus "Shangdi" not "ShangDi".

3. The same for books and authors: it's "Shijing" or "Shi Jing" (depending on whether you think its one or two words), but NOT "ShiJing". "Mozi" not "MoZi".

Hope that helps. --Sumple (Talk) 22:52, 22 May 2006 (UTC)

Sumple, Thank you for your corrections. The mistakes were due to my "greenness". I went back and modified nearly every page I butchered in order to update its conformity. After an edit war with someone committed to preserving Wade-Giles (no joke) I was very willing to use a more standardized practice.

Dispute resolution[edit]

Hi, I commend you on being so patient in dealing with the user in question. I'm not sure if I'm the best person to mediate this dispute since I've had some difficulties with this particular user myself in the past. It seems that you've tried to make an effort to communicate on the talk pages, but the other user has not been willing to discuss the issue. I think it's reasonable to assume that there's doubt regarding the validity of Lie Yukou as a real historical figure - I'm sure it's not just Giles.

I do find many of this particular user's habits to be rather troublesome; the user in question has also removed information at Sun Tzu that had questioned whether Sun Tzu was a real person (A view shared by many scholars, besides Giles). You might want to check out Wikipedia:Resolving disputes. You can ask for other user's input on this user's conduct by making a request for comment at Wikipedia:Requests for comment/User conduct (Maybe the best step to take at the moment). If that doesn't work, you can also request mediation at Wikipedia:Requests for mediation. Hope that helps--Confuzion 00:55, 28 June 2006 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

Thank you for delving into the Source Material for the Shangdi page. According to one source 大明会典, Vol. 82, pg. 28. https://ctext.org/wiki.pl?if=gb&chapter=210318 I am also wondering about the line "The Book of Rites states the sacrifice should occur on the "longest day" on a round-mound altar" since I read that the Summer Solstice sacrifice was to the Earth at the Northern Boundary, not in the South to Heaven.
