I'm going here next week
- Some photographs of the Hutongs would be great, as well as a brighter banner picture of the Forbidden City! Andrewssi2 (talk) 05:07, 21 March 2014 (UTC)
I think I will be able to put together a better version of that banner. My question is, though, how does one edit the banner? The filename isn't in the template. Daniel Case (talk) 02:23, 5 April 2014 (UTC)
Eat listings indentations?
- I "fixed" several of these, then noticed some where the odd indentation made sense; it was used to group places located in the same complex, so I stopped. It is possible some of my earlier changes should be undone, but I cannot tell. 01:50, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
There is a paragraph under Beijing/Dongcheng#History about the May 4th movement that contains claims that seemed to me obvious & blatantly incorrect propaganda. I deleted them, shaking my head at how silly propaganda claims can be. They have now been restored by User:Daniel Case. I am distinctly irritated about that; hence this post.
Current text claims "Mao Zedong, then a librarian at Peking University, led a protest march in 1919 ..." According to w:Mao_Zedong, Mao was not even in Beijing on May 4th; he had left the university and was back in his home province, Hunan. He did organise some demonstrations there in support, but that is far from the same thing.
Current text also claims "The "May 4 Movement" ... eventually grew into the Communist Party of China (CPC)." Certainly May 4 influenced every leftist or nationalist movement in China, including the Communists, but "grew into" is just nonsense.
- @Pashley:OK. that had been my understanding, but it appears I was wrong. I had meant to discuss this with you but I had other things to do. The main reason I had reverted was that your edit showed no sensitivity at all to the surrounding text—you could at least have realized that there are subsequent references to Mao which used only his last name and relied on the text you deleted as a first reference. In the future, when you make such changes, please consider the intratextual issues your changes create and take care of them as well. Daniel Case (talk) 21:57, 15 August 2014 (UTC)
A bit confusing
I was going to add some content until I realized the article only covers the central part of Dongcheng and there are 3 other articles for the other areas of Dongcheng. Should it be renamed to Central Dongcheng? Muzzleflash (talk) 17:06, 16 February 2019 (UTC)
