Re: Log In Issue - The submitted form was invalid

Good morning James! For a good while today I couldn't log in on the forum. It kept giving me this error : "The submitted form was invalid. Try submitting again." Even though my username and password were 100% correct. I found the solution here (it's a Chrome issue (Google/Brave)) : https:...

Another character 黑 for the co...

Re: Project Feedback: New Romance of the Three Kingdoms Online Novel?

Both translations cover these, Brewitt chops it up into 2 paragraphs, as does Moss. However, this is a nice summation, it leaves out the appearance of a serpent on the Imperial Throne which caused Emperor Ling to faint. Moss says Green Serpent, Brewitt says Black Serpent, which in fact for any omen...

If one example helps, about the blocks, I think what the English Wikisources was doing is dividing in blocks using the paragraphs of the Wikisource Chinese version:

Re: Project Feedback: New Romance of the Three Kingdoms Online Novel?

I think we should clarify a couple of things. First, I'm not sure C.H. Brewitt-Taylor translation is public domain. The fact is not so easy to find the text makes me think so. I've found what can be a hint to why, he died in 1938 but, according to Wikipedia: "a 1959 reprint was published that ...
