Since there are more Chinese releases and artists now, I think it’s time for a Chinese language style guide to standardize formatting, names, etc. The current page is not very comprehensive and I don’t agree with some of it (we can discuss this). I don’t think we should draft a whole new guide and publish it at once, because it would take a long time and just stall the entire process. We should approach it piecemeal, so a new part can be added to the guide whenever we encounter problems or ambiguities during our editing routines.
This thread is to discuss what should be in the guideline, how it should be drafted, or even whether we should have a Chinese style guide, etc. All are welcome. I have taken the liberty of drafting my own guide on the wiki, which you are welcome to edit. I’m pinging active editors whom I’ve seen editing Chinese releases and works: @Sevenuno @jesus2099 @chikinov @dragonzeron @eggblink @dm4 @vermillon @alegrilli @fhm0096 @samddung
I’m starting this discussion because a lot of the guidelines are not suited for Chinese or Asian languages at the moment. For example, the default join phrase is " & ", whereas Chinese would just used a simple “、”. There are a lot of issues to discuss and it may get contentious, but I think we should implement what we agree on first.
