"4 February 2004 was labelled the National Day of Action, as students from across Canada held demonstrations organized by the CFS, in protest to the skyrocketing tuition fees. This ongoing effort since CFS's founding has thus led to the tuition fee freezes for students in Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, and Newfoundland and Labrador. This year(2004-2005) is the first time in a while that the majority of students in Canada are not facing an increase in tuition fees."

It is an opinion that tuition fees are skyrocketing, along with the so-called results. Spinboy 04:28, 15 Nov 2004 (UTC)

I agree, it is one of those things which will never be fully neutral, but we can strive to get it as neutral as possible. Spinboy 17:37, 15 Nov 2004 (UTC)



I wanted to drop you a note to let you know I like your user name. Legolas is one of my favourite LOTR characters. Spinboy 07:23, 15 Nov 2004 (UTC)

I think it's an origional name. I haven't read the LOTR books, but I have read The Hobbit and seen the LOTR movies. He's one cool character. Spinboy 17:37, 15 Nov 2004 (UTC)

True, but he is a good character. Spinboy 04:13, 19 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Hockey players


Sorry, but the notes were in violation of Wikipedia policy. Notes for editors do not belong in articles. Everything in an article should be for the reader, not for us editors. I thus replaced it with Wikipedia:List of unformatted ice hockey players, a list is no harder to use for a project like this and causes no pollution in articles. If you feel a template message is essential it should go in the talk page. - SimonP 02:20, Nov 26, 2004 (UTC)

2004 - Taiwan Presidential Election


I noticed that during the revision '02:11, 23 Nov 2004' for the 2004 page, where your comment text was "a few more removals...i thought britney spear's 'wedding' has been removed already...," you added quotes around the word 'shot' in the entry regarding the Taiwan Presidental Election. (I am new to the wiki, so my sincere apologies if I misattributed the change.) This it seems like the quotes by them selves serve only to confuse those not familiar with the topic. Perhaps a more appropriate entry would be

since this links to a page where the issue is more fully fleshed out. -- 18:37, 28 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Piece values in Xiangqi


Hello! I didn't understand why you removed a section about piece values from Xiangqi article. I think this information is very usefull and you find the same numbers for example in rec.games.chinese-chess FAQ You are certainly right about "Soldier on the middle line", I already removed such entry from Xiangqi article in German Wikipedia. Andreas Kaufmann 21:12, 9 Jan 2005 (UTC)



You wrote in your editorial comments field: "(→Demographics - ...if you had a 'whitest city', then would you also have a 'blackest city'? -___- ...that borders on racism buddy... anyways i have made improvements)" ... that borders on racism buddy? How, exactly? --Lukobe 05:17, Jan 13, 2005 (UTC)

In response to your response on my page:

This is an encyclopedia, wordings such as whitest, blackest to describe people are just not polite in the view of the general public, and i believe that's why over the years media have changed their wording to 'African-American, Latin-American, Chinese-American', etc. If you were to call a city 'blackest', what does that imply? Of course the definition of racism may be very different from person to person, but in my opinion comparing 'white-ness' of a city is not very appropriate, especially in an encyclopedia of Wiki's nature. LG-犬夜叉 11:40, Jan 18, 2005 (UTC)

I disagree with your contention that "whitest" and "blackest" are not polite in the view of the general public. The proliferation of hyphenated-American terms is the result of political correctness. And I am saying this as a Jewish Korean American! To call a city "blackest" means "most black" means "highest percentage of black people" means "highest percentage of people of African descent"; it's as simple as that. I don't think this is racist in the least. --Lukobe 02:12, Jan 19, 2005 (UTC)

Inuyasha character template

  • I notice that you added Hojo to the Inuyasha character template. Good thinking! Is there a particular reason why you moved Sota to the end, though? I think it may disturb the order a bit. Josh 19:58, Jan 13, 2005 (UTC)
  • Excellent idea! I like the modern character section that you added. Josh 02:35, Mar 23, 2005 (UTC)

Honorifics and titles


Would you take a look at User:Ford/proposals, regarding the honorifics issue? Any comments are welcome, though I am primarily trying to ascertain if there is a sufficient level of discontent with current practice, which is the widespread inclusion of honorifics and unnecessary titles in articles. Thanks.

category: InuYasha items


The purpose of it is sort of to link the objects to Category:Fictional objects as well as to Category:InuYasha. Basically it was an efficiency thing (I am a programmer, I tend to think of things in efficiency sense). Delete it if you wish, but I think for those that don't have Category:Fictional swords, then I guess we should link to Fictional objects. -- EmperorBMA|話す 04:33, 10 Feb 2005 (UTC)



I agree that Tessaiga is a better term to use than Tetsusaiga, but before you start changing instances that you see on other pages, might I suggest that you look at Talk:Tetsusaiga and this argument on the Manual of Style talk page. We already had a discussion about this, and it was decided that we should use Tetsusaiga because it is more common. Not that we couldn't reopen the discussion, I just wanted to make sure that you knew some background. Josh 07:50, Feb 18, 2005 (UTC)

As I said, I agree completely that we should use Tessaiga because it is the correct romanization. If you want to actually change anything, though, you should try to convince the people who supported Tetsusaiga before. Otherwise, I suspect that they will revert such changes. You are definitely right that the Manual of Style discussion never exactly concluded. I suggested then that we should make a clearer policy about this, but that was never done. Josh 02:42, Feb 19, 2005 (UTC)
Oh, and one other thing that I forgot. If you do decide to post something about it, let me know, and possibly User:Reene too. She was one of the main supporters of Tessaiga the last time around. Josh 02:54, Feb 19, 2005 (UTC)
Actually, on second thought, you probably shouldn't bother Reene. It looks like she is taking a WikiVacation. Josh 03:06, Feb 19, 2005 (UTC)

yuan dynasty


hey thanx. I was wondering if the original author's intent was that Yuan dynasty was the shortest foreign dynasty in chinese history, with Qing dynasty being much longer. Wareware 08:24, 27 Feb 2005 (UTC)



Hey, I'm user whose version of this article you edited. As I said in the history of that page, I did not copy that from the official website nor from any thing else, for that matter. I know you didn't mean to do this, but I was really complimented when you mistook my writing for professional work. ^___^ Makes me all warm and fuzzy. I guess my fourth grade English teacher really didn't know what the heck she was talking about XD!

Vancouver photos


Well I tried several text sizes & screen widths & the photo was always between the text table & the table of contents - filling in that empty gap there. I use IE6, what browser are you using? I have 1600x1200, but tried other widths too. Where'd it end up on your screen? Look at September 11, 2001 attacks - is that a problem too?--JimWae 07:22, 2005 Apr 6 (UTC)

Taiwan vs. ROC


Regarding your vote and edit summary (oppose.."Taiwan" is much more common than "ROC") at Wikipedia talk:Naming conventions (Chinese)/NPOV/Taiwan vs. ROC, please be informed that the moves are to stick with the current naming conventions. Thanks. — Instantnood 08:20, Apr 6, 2005 (UTC)

You're right, but at the same time NPOV, appropriateness and accuracy is also very important. And this is exactly what Wikipedia:Naming conventions (Chinese)#Political NPOV addresses. The current poll is to deal with the enforcement of the political NPOV section of the naming conventions on Chinese-related topics. Please do not vote against them because you do not agree with the conventions. Thanks. — Instantnood 18:53, Apr 6, 2005 (UTC)
I respect your right to vote, and I am not saying you cannot vote in this way. But I am afraid you might have misunderstood the purpose of the polls. They are for enforcement of the current set of naming conventions. If you disagree with it, you can propose to change it, rather than making pages not following it. — Instantnood 19:07, Apr 6, 2005 (UTC)
There's an option to support or oppose because each entry is different, and we have to decide on which entries fit the naming conventions by a poll. If you believe it's better to call it Taiwan rather than ROC please suggest it at the discussion page of the naming conventions. You may also be interested to have a look at the previous discussions on Taiwan vs. ROC at Wikipedia_talk:Naming conventions (Chinese)/archive4 (from section 7 to the end of the page). — Instantnood 19:23, Apr 6, 2005 (UTC)
Right. There was several long discussions on the issue, and being the most common is not the only or most important argument. As for the votes I guess it is much more appropriate for you to take them out. — Instantnood 19:45, Apr 6, 2005 (UTC)
Leave them, the ambiguity is exactly why they should stay. Readers shouldn't need to read a thesis on the political status of taiwan before searching for information about it. SchmuckyTheCat 20:35, 6 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Searching and locating the right information is already assisted by redirects and disambiguations. The titles should reflect appropriateness, accuracy and NPOV. — Instantnood 21:00, Apr 6, 2005 (UTC)

Seeing how much of a good Wikipedian you are, and a fan of Star Wars, I invite you to join us at Star Wars Wiki aka Wookieepedia and help contribute. We are need of people who can get stuff copied from Wikipedia that would not normally be suitable here. Also there is a lot of formatting that needs to be done in a process dubbed Wookification. See you there. :) -- Riffsyphon1024 04:13, Apr 10, 2005 (UTC)

  • Thanks for the invitation. Though I must let you know that I am a relative newcomer to the Star Wars universe, however I have known about it for quite a long time.

I will try my best to contribute, starting next week .. (exam time...trying to stay away from "distractions"). LG-犬夜叉 19:43, Apr 12, 2005 (UTC)

    • I respect your need to study for exams. I have a crapload of wicked things coming this way soon to work on and study for. See you at Wookieepedia soon. -- Riffsyphon1024 19:50, Apr 12, 2005 (UTC)

You said: "My thinking in adding that pic to her page is that, since we do not have any other pics to show for, why not just display that one for the time being? It's a full body shot and gives the page some color, looks nice and it was her signature movie."

Sorry, we can't use it that way. The license for DVD images permits their use only to illustrate the DVD in question, not to depict the person. --Yamla 20:12, 8 September 2006 (UTC)[reply]

Monty Hall problem


Hi - I just thought I'd drop by and let you know this change is mathematically incorrect. If the original pick is still 1/100 (which it is), then the other 98 doors each have an even chance of the remaining 99/100, i.e. each of the 98 doors has a 1/98 * 99/100 = 99/9800 chance. If the host opens more of the 99 unchosen doors, with N remaining they each have a 1/N * 99/100 chance (so if the host opens 98 of them, the one remaining has a 99/100 chance of being the one with the car). The difference between 1/99 and 99/9800 is not that large, but the whole point is that the original division between the player's door (1/100) and the rest (99/100) remains constant no matter how many doors the host opens. This is exactly the same as the 3 door version, where the player's initial pick remains 1/3 with the other doors (2 at first, then 1 after the host opens 1) sharing the other 2/3. Please feel free to improve the wording of this section of the article, but it needs to stay mathematically correct. -- Rick Block (talk) 14:26, 30 April 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Jay Chou's FAC status


Heh... so I guess you're right about the article length! As I'm sure you know, a reviewer asked for it to be lengthened and it was, so his Oppose is now a Support.

About the alias of '周董', it's a bit of a story. So it was Himurakenshin who initially put 周董 in the infobox, which was great, then later Sky Divine wrote "Also known as Jay, 周董 (rarely)", which I thought was unencyclopedic and weird. The fact is, '周董' is used pretty often (as I'm sure you're aware of), but I figured, if someone thought 周董 was rare, I'm safer just leaving it out. That is why I removed it. I'll go put 周董 back now.

Hey, just wanted to say thank you for being so supportive of FAC process and also just the general well-being of this Jay Chou article. I really appreciate it. It's great to know supportive people in a sea of editors who argue endlessly about Taiwan/ROC, vandals and the like! SeleneFN 04:47, 15 May 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Ah. I overlooked that it was you who actually put in the alias 周董. Really sorry about that! SeleneFN 06:10, 15 May 2007 (UTC)[reply]

I hadn't said thank you yet to your very positive review for the Jay Chou article, so thanks very much! I hope to write more quality Jay-related articles in the future, so I would very much hope to see your continued involvement no matter how big or small! SeleneFN 07:19, 2 July 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Thanks for your comments! It is truly with regret that I decide to end my participation in Wikipedia, especially on a day where Jay Chou is featured on the main page! Originally I had in mind to write a lot more articles, but I end up spending more time defending every sentence, down to where the commas are placed... it is no longer a constructive place to be. It seems to make people happy to de-"star" an article! Very well then...

Anyways, best of luck to you too everything you're planning to do! SeleneFN (talk) 15:57, 21 July 2008 (UTC)[reply]

Translating from Chinese for Super Girl (contest)


Hi LegolasGreenleaf! I found you through the list of available translators from Chinese into English and noticed that you've helped with bringing the Jay Chou article to FA status, so I figured you're the person for me to go to. I'm wondering if you'd be able to help me with expanding the Super Girl (contest) article that I've been working on for WP:CPOP. The Chinese Wikipedia has a lot of content on this article and its sub-articles for each contest season. Unfortunately, my Chinese is very limited and I can only read bits and pieces of the article. I'd appreciate your help in helping translate portions of the articles which are worth mentioning in the English version.

You can find the Chinese equivalents of the Super Girl article at 超级女声 (contest), 2006年超级女声 (2006 season), 2005快乐中国蒙牛酸酸乳超级女声 (2005 season), and 2004快乐中国·超级女声 (2004 season). Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! —Arsonal 04:57, 15 August 2007 (UTC)[reply]

You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box.

The Legend of Sword and Fairy


Hello, I see you are a fan of 仙剑奇侠传. This is great. Because I am a huge fan of the game (NOT the TV series) myself and have always wanted to figure out what the "Capital City" is in the game. I can see that you have put Chang'an (Xi'an) as the capital city in the Plot section of the article. But I have always thought the capital in the game is Nanjing. According to the route of their journey (urban settlements are bolded):

  1. A village near Suzhou
  2. Travels along a river
  3. Suzhou
  4. Wilderness, mountains, caves, snakes, giant snakes...
  5. A village between Suzhou and Yangzhou
  6. Wilderness, temple, a massive tomb, zombies, mountains, caves
  7. Yangzhou
  8. More wilderness, mountains, caves, frogs, scorpians...
  9. Outskirts of the Capital
  10. Capital City
  11. Shu mountain in Sichuan
  12. The giant pagoda prison
  13. Dali, Yunnan

So basically, if they were to travel from Yangzhou to Sichuan, they can pretty much just stick to the Yangtze River and it will take them directly there. That's why I always think that the capital is Nanjing, but then it also mean they made a huge leap in their progress by "flying" with the drunken guy all the way from Nanjing to Sichuan. Although Chang'an or Xi'an is one of the most famous ancient capitals of China, it would mean that they will go on a big detour if they were to go from Yangzhou to Chang'an, then to Sichuan and ended in Yunnan.

Article upgrade assistance request (Pre-translation stage)


Seasons Greetings,

This is in reference to a relatively new umbrella article on en-wikipedia named Ceremonial pole. Ceremonial pole is a human tradition since ancient times; either existed in past at some point of time, or still exists in some cultures across global continents from north to south & from east to west. Ceremonial poles are used to symbolize a variety of concepts in several different world cultures.

Through article Ceremonial pole we intend to take encyclopedic note of cultural aspects and festive celebrations around Ceremonial pole as an umbrella article and want to have historical, mythological, anthropological aspects, reverence or worships wherever concerned as a small part.

While Ceremonial poles have a long past and strong presence but usually less discussed subject. Even before we seek translation of this article in global languages, we need to have more encyclopedic information/input about Ceremonial poles from all global cultures and languages. And we seek your assistance in the same.

Asian 10,000 Challenge invite


Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Asia/The 10,000 Challenge has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge and Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The 10,000 Challenge. The idea is not to record every minor edit, but to create a momentum to motivate editors to produce good content improvements and creations and inspire people to work on more countries than they might otherwise work on. There's also the possibility of establishing smaller country or regional challenges for places like South East Asia, Japan/China or India etc, much like Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). For this to really work we need diversity and exciting content and editors from a broad range of countries regularly contributing. At some stage we hope to run some contests to benefit Asian content, a destubathon perhaps, aimed at reducing the stub count would be a good place to start, based on the current Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon which has produced near 200 articles in just three days. If you would like to see this happening for Asia, and see potential in this attracting more interest and editors for the country/countries you work on please sign up and being contributing to the challenge! This is a way we can target every country of Asia, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia. We need numbers to make this work so consider signing up as a participant! Thank you. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 05:17, 20 October 2016 (UTC)[reply]

New 10,000 Challenge for Canada


Hi, Wikipedia:WikiProject Canada/The 10,000 Challenge is up and running based on Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge for the UK which has currently produced over 2300 article improvements and creations. If you'd like to see large scale quality improvements happening for Canada like The Africa Destubathon, which has produced over 1600 articles in 5 weeks, sign up on the page. The idea will be an ongoing national editathon/challenge for Canada but fuelled by a contest such as The North America Destubathon to really get articles on every province and subject mass improved. I would like some support from Canadian wikipedians here to get the Challenge off to a start with some articles to make doing a Destubathon worthwhile! Cheers. --MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 01:55, 22 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Translation help

The "Mazu Cultural Palace" in Songjiang's Fangta Park, where you can get free soy milk and youtiao if you show up at the right times.

Since you were kind/foolish enough to have your name on this list, here's a note that I could use some help with the mess of Mazu temples in Shanghai. There were three; the first two were destroyed; the third got moved to Songjiang and rebuilt; and then as of 2014 Zhabei was considering rebuilding their old one. So:

If you have time and interest for any, some, or all of that, great and please leave a note here saying so. I'm asking all the listed Chinese translators for help, so we wouldn't want anyone needlessly duplicating work. — LlywelynII 02:42, 22 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
