Draft:Fujian–Taiwan relationships [ edit ]

Could somebody take a look at Draft:Fujian–Taiwan relationships. Due to most of the references being Chinese language, this will need a native speaker to review properly. -- RoySmith (talk) 13:15, 4 May 2020 (UTC)

As the submitter, please wait a while for me to improve the sources according to WP:LANGCITE. Should be available in a few days, but I'll update here when I'm done. Eumat114 formerly TLOM (Message) 13:41, 4 May 2020 (UTC)
Fixing  Done. Please have a look, from Eumat114 formerly TLOM (Message) 08:54, 5 May 2020 (UTC)

Input requested at Talk:COVID-19 pandemic in mainland China [ edit ]

Should the article summarize and quote an editorial from the tabloid Bild saying that "China planned to strengthen itself by exporting a plague and then sending aid in the form of masks"? Please give your input at Talk:COVID-19 pandemic in mainland China#Bild editorial. —Granger (talk · contribs) 14:45, 7 May 2020 (UTC)

Province Infobox Montages [ edit ]

Over the past weeks, I have been noticing multiple editors adding montages to several Chinese provinces. However, many other first-level administrative divisions around the world such as those in the US, Canada, and Australia lack any sort of photographic visuals in the lead infobox. This leads me to question whether or not the addition of montages to these Chinese provinces are really necessary, especially when there are many quality images already shown within the article. Any thoughts? (talk) 06:23, 11 May 2020 (UTC)

Discussion on article scope of Democracy in China [ edit ]

I’ve raised a question whether the article scope of Democracy in China should include post-1949 ROC / Taiwan. See the discussion here. Guidance is welcome! — MarkH21talk 01:46, 14 May 2020 (UTC)

Missing/broken references [ edit ]

I'm trying to make a dent in Category:Harv and Sfn no-target errors, and a few articles within the hockey sphere have issues that I can't fix on my own (~5600 issue as of writing). Basically, some refs linked via {{sfn}} and {{harvnb}} and similar have missing full citations or have some other problems. You can check these instructions to have error messages enabled (Svick's script is the simplest to use, but Trappist's script is a bit more refined if you're interested in doing deeper cleanup).

In particular, the following articles could use some of your attention

The cause is often copy-pasting a short reference from another article without copy-pasting the full reference. If you can find where things were copy-pasted from, you can usually find what the full reference is.

Thanks for any help you can give! Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 05:40, 16 May 2020 (UTC)

Thank you for the heads up. I've begun working on some of these and struck through them on your list. Especially for the year ones, they seem to be taken from articles like Timeline of the Yuan dynasty or Ming dynasty, so it's pretty easy to track them down, if anyone else wants to.

Points of the compass [ edit ]

Somebody who, unlike me, can read sources in Chinese (and has a bit of time on their hands) could augment the article Points of the compass with the kind of material that's at 方位. As it is, the former article is pleasantly informative about archaic European nomenclature but not about the traditional division or naming of the compass elsewhere. (Although we do have token mentions within Cardinal direction -- perhaps Points of the compass and Cardinal direction really ought to be merged.) -- Hoary (talk) 00:48, 25 May 2020 (UTC)

I think that's a great idea. It'd help make the article more informative and have a worldwide view on the topic. LittleCuteSuit (talk) 21:25, 25 May 2020 (UTC)
