WikiProject ChineseEdit


Just a message to tell you that I finally joined Wikisource:WikiProject Chinese. I hope everything is working well for you, and I hope to hear more about you in the future.

Yes I am fine, but I am too busy in real life and the lack of community here made me lose my motivation to contribute. I see you are working on Synoptical Studies in Chinese Character? I will try to help a bit once in a while. Koxinga (talk) 14:12, 24 September 2017 (UTC)
I understand. I, myself, will have to get a job eventually :D but I'll try to keep on contributing.
Even though A pronouncing and defining dictionary of the Swatow dialect and every other book related to Teochew/Diojiu dialect are my main interest, I started to work on other materials about Chinese language. And Synoptical Studies in Chinese Character is a really interesting work... That is why I wanted to help. And it helps me practice the Cangjie IME. And because sometimes, proofreading heavy-diacriticalled or chinese characters is a bit exhausting, I work on the French Wikisource. I agree that the community is a bit light on Wikisource as on any other project, other than Wikipedia.
By the way, are you the same « Koxinga » who used to work on the French Wiktionary ?

Yes, normally accounts are unique across all Wikimedia projects, but that was a long time ago! I just went to my page there, I completely forgot I did so many things... Koxinga (talk) 20:21, 24 September 2017 (UTC)
I actually started working on languages through the French Wiktionary first. However, the lack of available open sources dictionaries and the feeling that working on the Wiktionary would require more coding and more bot activities, I switched to find new open sources about Chinese languages first. That is why I arrived here on the English Wikisource. Assassas77 (talk) 09:47, 26 September 2017 (UTC)
