Re: Character Portraits I or other modders have made

I didn't made those, they were found on chinese, korean and japanese forums. I use the japanese characters for Nobunaga's Ambition : Sphere of Influence. I don't own any PC version of the RTK games, so I can't use my huge collection of portraits. So I collect them for fun. I have many thousand port...

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

A consideration... American vs British English KMA’s style guide has been to use American English (because that’s what I use and kiddo me founded the site) and, for written works contributed by authors, whatever style those authors used (with respect to their works and individual preferences). I’ve ...

This is very interesting. I assume the cross-section grid is given a distance scale?

Do you make them for fun? Or are you using them for the likes of a game mod?

Re: Chinese “Spy Balloon” Spotted Over Montana

Hmm... not sure I’m on the same page with a lot of that. If NATO/allies are “itching for a fight” it certainly isn’t with China. The western world’s dependencies on China put their dependencies on Russia to utter shame. I don’t think they’re “itching for a fight” with Russia, either. Certainly not a...

Re: Kongming's Archives Development/Encyclopedia Project

I've noticed two issues with KMA: In many regards, the encyclopedia is a “young” project. It isn’t so young in terms of timeline, now, but it has been contributed to by a relatively limited pool of individuals and the site has experienced a fair amount of downtime. Looking at Cai Yan, for example, ...

Chinese “Spy Balloon” Spotted Over Montana

An Article on the Balloon Furor Over Chinese Spy Balloon Leads to a Diplomatic Crisis — New York Times Something—some things—about this are pretty curious to me. It's kind of hilarious for the stigma of an unidentified flying object being identified as a “weather balloon” to now be an object that lo...

Re: Sanji Himura's Novel Edits (an offshoot of New Online Novel thread)

This is the full version of the Yoda-like line as it appears in the original Brewitt-Taylor translation: [...] I’m curious what Moss Roberts wrote, and how you would translate it? If memory serves, there are a range of rather Yoda-like—ha, apt—statements like this in the traditional C.H. Brewitt Ta...

Re: Log In Issue - The submitted form was invalid

I MESSED WITH THINGS I just reconfigured the board to use the-scholars.com *instead* of www[dot]the-scholars.com (for some unrelated reasons), reconfigured cookies, and made some adjustments to the behind-the-scenes rules managing redirects and whatnot. *Hopefully* I have done everything properly, ...
