Shang Jiang?!!![edit]

Shouldn't we try to find an English translation of Shang Jiang before we create a template for it? I suggest that Shang Jiang be renamed General of Marshall.--Niohe 00:21, 30 December 2006 (UTC)

Hi, thank you for your concern. The thing is, there are actually pages dealing specifically with Chinese military ranks. I suggest telling the reader that 'Shang Jiang' is the highest rank attainable in the first paragraph of every Shang Jiang article. Plus, if the reader is interested in what Shang Jiang is equivalent to in English, they may always check out Shang Jiang as linked in the template. Hanfresco 08:23, 30 December 2006 (UTC)
Hi again. I have already posted a suggestion to Chinese military ranks that all ranks be given English name.--Niohe 14:32, 30 December 2006 (UTC)
I've read your suggestion and understand where you're coming from. I suppose it makes sense and if the consenses is to change it, than I will update the template as well. Hanfresco 22:58, 30 December 2006 (UTC)
Great! I will give people some time to respond and I'll keep you informed.--Niohe 23:02, 30 December 2006 (UTC)

About Li Da[edit]

I changed this internal link in the template into Li Da (general), as the original link refers to a PRC Marxist philosopher, not a brilliant general.--RekishiEJ (talk) 23:18, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
