"Pandian" meaning in Chinese

Can anyone tell me the meaning of "Pandian" in Chninese? Some one said that it meant for occupied land. Can anyone give me the link of Chinese-English dictionary to refer the meaning of "Pandian" in English?--தென்காசி சுப்பிரமணியன்留言) 2013年12月3日 (二) 17:38 (UTC)回复[回复]

May I know what language is "Pandian" in? Is it Tamil? --黄居士 (留言 公开 私底下 | 参与专题) 2014年1月12日 (日) 06:47 (UTC)回复[回复]
You are also recommended to ask this question in en:Wikipedia:Reference desk in the English Wikipedia since you understand English as your question requires linguistic research. Cheers, 黄居士 (留言 公开 私底下 | 参与专题) 2014年1月12日 (日) 06:51 (UTC)回复[回复]

No. I'm asking chinese meaning only. There are five places in the name of Pandian in China. Dozens of Highways are there in China in the name of Pandian. Any how I'll ask it in Reference desk also. Thanks for your support.--தென்காசி சுப்பிரமணியன்留言) 2014年1月12日 (日) 09:57 (UTC)回复[回复]

There are several townships in China named Pandian:
  1. 潘店乡 Pandian Township, Fengqiu County, Henan (see en:List of township-level divisions of Henan)
  2. 潘店镇 (齐河县) Pandian Town, Qihe County, Shandong (see en:List of township-level divisions of Shandong)
  3. 潘店镇 (封丘县) Pandian Town, Fengqiu County, Henan
Please specify where you find this word if it's not a township listed above.--HNAKXR留言) 2014年1月12日 (日) 13:45 (UTC)回复[回复]
Hi, in Chinese, a Latin transliteration (i.e. Hanyu Pinyin) may refer to anything. For example, a Chinese characters can be pronounced in four tones, yet transliterated in English without tonal marks. I do not know where you found this word. Many characters have the same pronunciation and tone. Furthermore, a Chinese character bears many meanings. So it would be impossible to know the meaning if you do not state the source you got the word. --黄居士 (留言 公开 私底下 | 参与专题) 2014年1月18日 (六) 10:07 (UTC)回复[回复]

Oh! I see. Thanks for your Info. The source is one Chinese to English dictionary. But I don't know that dictionary name. And that occupied land meaning is meant for the places which were named as Pandian in China. It is also better for me to know why that Places were named as Pandian.--தென்காசி சுப்பிரமணியன்留言) 2014年1月18日 (六) 17:12 (UTC)回复[回复]

Hi! This is an invitation to join translators working on the November's issue of the VisualEditor monthly newsletter, which will be widely delivered later this week. The previous bulletin was published in 10 languages, but the translation was completed only for three of them. Will we do better this month? We'd like to reach many more communities in their own language this time, as we're announcing interesting developments like the new ability to add tables and their elements. Thanks a lot for your help! Elitre (WMF) 2014年11月11日 (二) 10:24 (UTC)回复[回复]

PS: Here are some instructions. Please go to the translation page: your language should be available from the drop-down menu on the right. Once you've selected it, you'll see the document in English side by side with any translation work already done in your language. You can add new translations or modify existing ones. If you need further help or would like to receive a talk page message to be notified of future translations, please contact me directly.

PPS: My apologies if you have read this elsewhere, and if I picked up a wrong page for this request: please feel free to move it to the most appropriate venue!

How can edits complying with Wikipedia's rule be regarded as vandalism?

  1. I concentrate on punctuation revision, what's the problem?
  2. I only concentrate on punctuation revision so I can do fast than usual without using automatic tools, what's the problem?
  3. Were my edit intervals really too short? I just submitted more than one articles at the same time after completing their revisions! Please review my edit history again! Or please tell me how many articles I can submit at the same time!
  4. User:Mewaqua criticizes my edit behavior is "只是依照既定「規則」刷編輯". I don't care my edit counts at all. If I cared, I should do much more than your imagine. How can a user arbitrarily judge another user?
  5. User:Mewaqua criticizes "有時胡亂刪掉參考文獻內新聞標題用作分隔句子的space"、"經常引致斜體字和數學公式不易閱讀"、"有時把本應分段的內容合併在一起", what are the evidences? Or how many errors in my over 9,000 edits? More than 0.5% or 1%? A few my edits might be wrong just as your edits might be incorrect. Why didn't you tell me what articles should be revised again or revise them directly by yourselves? How many Chinese Wikipedians are so unfriendly?
  6. User:578985s just doubted I am a robot or using a robot, then reported to vandalism. Administrator User:Kuailong also agreed to him. In English Wikipedia, they say "The edits of the reported user must be obvious vandalism or obvious spam." Why is Chinese Wikipedia so arbitrary and unfriendly?
  7. Some users appreciated my edits. How can Administrator ignore this fact intentionally?
  8. If my edits is correct without error, what's the problem? Or what's bad to Wikipedia? Why can some users always revert my edits just because they don't like their articles to be touched? See:
  1. IMI TAR-21突擊步槍 has been reverted by User:Krasnyy Suou.
  2. 雷明登887霰彈槍 has been reverted by User:ArikamaI.
  3. 伯奈利M1 Super 90霰彈槍 has been reverted by User:ArikamaI.
  4. 伯奈利新星霰彈槍 has been reverted by User:ArikamaI.
  5. 伯奈利拉斐爾CrioComfort霰彈槍 has been reverted by User:ArikamaI.
  6. 伯奈利拉斐爾霰彈槍 has been reverted by User:ArikamaI.
  7. 齊亞帕犀牛式左輪手槍 has been reverted by User:ArikamaI.
  8. 伯奈利達文西霰彈槍 has been reverted by User:ArikamaI.
  9. VHS突擊步槍 has been reverted by User:ArikamaI.
  10. PP-19野牛冲锋枪 has been reverted by User:ArikamaI.
and more...

  • 在中文維基,對於Wikipedia:格式手冊/數學還未達成共識,所以刪空格沒意義。如果將來決定符號之間要有空格,那又得改回來。
  • 就一般而言,你的修改也不是沒有side effect,例如整篇文章都刪空格,對版本間差異顯示的影響很大,給後來編者的查察增添困難。也不知會否有潛在問題。
  • 即使不是全自動,你還是使用了某種半自動程序吧?否則難以理解你為何數次犯「,。」這樣的錯誤。
  • 大規模修改本來就容易出錯。請不要指望別人能檢查你的每一個編輯,還能告訴你哪裡有錯處。檢查應該是你的責任。
  • 建議你不如去申請機器人,至少方便監察。

To User:578985s:
  • I just comply with Wikipedia:格式手册, what's the problem with you? If you think 數學 articles are special on Wikipedia, why don't you urge having a discussion instead of claiming "No consensus" one-sidedly?
  • "就一般而言,你的修改也不是沒有side effect,例如整篇文章都刪空格,對版本間差異顯示的影響很大,給後來編者的查察增添困難。也不知會否有潛在問題。" <-- How can you say this so easily? Careless wording is very mistakable! I don't think this opinion makes any sense in fact. No matter it is your feeling or guessing, please stop it.
  • I have said many times that I didn't use automatic tools. 「,。」 was just my misunderstanding. I remember I had said sorry for the mistake to you. You don't believe me, it's alright, but how can you insist on your hypothesis without any evidence?
  • Sure, so I previewed my every edit. Unfortunately, there is still a few mistakes in my thousands of edits. Is there no error in your edits? Or are my errors too many? Most of my edits are correct. I never heard perfectness required on Wikipedia.
  • I have also said many times that I am not a robot or using a robot. Why should I apply for a robot? Too ridiculous!

  • Wikipedia:格式手册/数学中標明該頁是「尚未達成共識」,"one-sided"從何說起。而且,Wikipedia:格式手册中亦註明「有关数学或数学式请参阅Wikipedia:WikiProject数学」。
  • 把半角符號改為全角符號這點,我覺得挺好。但你的編輯(至少是以往)確實有好些問題。舉例,[1]只改一半弧號;[2]把)(變為逗號,令拼音跟年份連在一起;[3]因改動弧號令內鍵無效。這些恐怕都不是個別的錯誤。

  • 有時胡亂刪掉參考文獻內新聞標題用作分隔句子的space:

    • [5](「開放聖人瀑布 溪山里民疾呼」又被刪去space)
  • 另有:
    • [6](「[[RAM (专辑)|RAM]]」改成全形括號)
    • [7](「國土地理院 地圖閱覽系統 2万5千分1地形圖名:御嶽山(北東)」,這裡有可能是Time killer用了某種工具自動把「御嶽山(北東)」當作消歧義括號,所以加了space)

Yes,that's your problem.The find and replace function好吧,我的英文超差,我用母语说算了。这个就是你的问题所在了,查找替换本身功能过于简单,不会去理解文段间的意思,你这样简单地查找替换会破坏掉一些有意义的空格,而且从你不能使用中文来看,大概,你不明白一些在zh.WP的写作方法或中文的写作方法。甚至过于形式化,在刷编辑数。所以建议不要再这样做,除非你完全明白你所做的意义,不要拿格式手册做挡箭牌,一来“The code is more what you call "guidelines" than actual rules.”,二来很明显你这种所谓的“格式化”行为反而造成其编辑者的困扰,不符合共识。——路过围观的Sakamotosan 2014年11月25日 (二) 03:21 (UTC)回复[回复]

It's meaningful. You have to understand first that more and more users edit Wikipedia through smartphone. Too many unnecessary spaces and remarks in a source code, especially only for layout purpose, will make itself difficult to read on a small screen. This is why the concise infobox style becomes popular. One more reason for deleting some remarks is that, they are not written in Chinese. You don't allow English opinions in 互助客栈 but allow non-Chinese remarks in articles, I don't think this kind of differentiation makes any sense. Or just discrimination to me?

想到smartphone這麼細緻…算了不清楚。註釋的話如果有需要,即使非中文也不必刪除啊,反正放著又不礙事。互助客栈不留英文是考慮到頁面展示,兩者無比較性。再說,以你的中英水平順道把註釋翻譯過來亦非難事吧…--578985s留言) 2014年12月5日 (五) 13:36 (UTC)回复[回复]
