Sure. Send me a private message with the email address associated with your Kongming's Archives account and I'll get you started. :)

The link to the page for Liu Jun of Wu redirects back to the Encyclopedia's main page.

That's because the cache hasn't updated, and it's a new entry. It should be fine in a day or two.

I really should update that to run more elegantly...

Another question: Wang Cizhong. He would've been added a long time ago, and he shows up in the google search for his name, but he has no bio and his page returns an error. Do you have any records of what happened with his bio?

He doesn't exist in the database anymore. I also searched the other Wangs to see if there were notes of deletion as a duplicate (I leave a note when I remove someone) but can't find anything. I imagine he was deleted for a reason, but I can't guess what that might have been. So if you're looking at a Wang Cizhong, might be worthwhile to add him again.

That's because Wang Cizhong is a Qin individual. TigerTally explained the reasoning behind his removal here.

EDIT: Speaking of removing entries, Xiang Tiao $609 and Xiang Tao $1819 are duplicates. Mijia $2432 and $2475 are duplicates as well. Fu Jia $2613 and Fu Gu $0162 might duplicates. Lü You $1822 and $2418 are definitely duplicates. Also Liu Pi $0346 and $1357 are most likely duplicates. Also also Ruan Xian $2143 and $2140 are duplicates.

2ND EDIT: Also, James, I noticed that the search engine in the database editor won't recgonize ü for some reason.

Out of curiosity, have you thought about letting people search by time period instead of officer name?
Unless I specifically say otherwise, assume I am talking about historical Three Kingdoms, and not the novel.

For some reason I thought that was supported, but I can see that it is not.

That's a good idea, though I'm not sure how comprehensive the results would be. There are many people who would, for example, clearly appear within a time period, but would not be displayed due to a lack of lifespan information.

You can always set it to filter whether we're going with officers certainly active in period X and officers who may or may not have been active during period X.

And it may be best to do without ü; sure, for some reason scholars like to use it, but then there's a the pain of wondering whether an officer is Lu Bu or Lü Bu (or Lu Bü or Lü Bü!).
Yes, I know that they never use Bü...
