Smile Hi guys and gals who love history! I haven't posted here in a very, very, long time. Did anyone miss me? Cry

Just kidding! I'd be surprised if anyone here even remembered me and my antics from back in 2006, or 2007, or early 2008, or whenever it was the last time I posted here. Wink

Anyways, in addition to being the wily Preobrazhenskoe (Peter the Great inspired that title), I'm also Pericles of Athens (that's User:PericlesofAthens) over at the English Wikipedia. I thought I'd do a little advertising over here at AllEmpires about some of the work I've been doing lately, some of which I think you'll enjoy. I've got a few Wiki accomplishments so far: I've nominated and passed 15 Featured Articles and 12 Good ones too:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:PericlesofAthens

Hint: Featured means the best-rated type of peer-reviewed article at Wiki; Good means second best. Pretty sweet, huh? Big smile 

I was wondering if anyone has bothered looking at the page for Han Dynasty (202 BC - 220 AD) lately, you know, that ancient Chinese dynasty following the big bad Qin Dynasty.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Han_Dynasty

I love this article now (very well cited with scholarly sources, great pictures too)! And I think you'll love it as well. In fact, I think you'll like it so much, I guarantee that you'll be completely satisfied when you read all of these fine Han-related articles that I created, expanded, nominated, and passed as either Featured or Good articles:

History
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_the_Han_Dynasty

Society and culture
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Society_and_culture_of_the_Han_Dynasty

Government
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Government_of_the_Han_Dynasty

Economy
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Economy_of_the_Han_Dynasty

Science and technology
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Science_and_technology_of_the_Han_Dynasty

Badda bing. Badda boom. You've got yourself there half a baker's dozen. Feast on that and I'll cook you up some more featured articles for the near future. Until then, enjoy these fine products of mine. And remember, if it has the PericlesofAthens® seal of approval, it's a brand you can trust. Smile

Regards AllEmpires,
Eric, aka. Preobrazhenskoe

I posted this days ago. No one cares about the Han Dynasty? ...That makes me a sad panda.



Cry A very sad panda,

Hey Eric/Preobrazhenskoe/Pericles!  LOL
 
I definitely remember you from Simaqian and from AE.  Glad to see you back again.  It looks like you have been hard at work!  I think there are still some Chinese history fans here at AE.  Hopefully they will chime in shortly.

Hey Byzantine Emperor! Long time no see. I miss collaborating on Byzantine-era articles with you, but SimaQian became a graveyard forum of sorts. Like an abandoned town in the Midwest US with tumbleweeds going by. It's a good thing that the discussion of history is live and well at AllEmpires.

And you're a certified moderator now! I don't think you were a moderator here the last time we chatted (God, was that back in 2007? Or was that last year in 2008).

Good to see you,
Eric

I care about the time after the Han Dynasty (the Three Kingdoms), more than I do about the actual dynasty. I know, weird isn't it? We should make a thread about the Three Kingdoms era. I would gladly contribute.

Hi Eric,
 
I've been practically swamped with work and family life, so interest in history got to take a backseat.
 
Anyway, I've started reading a commentary on Spring Autumn Annals and it is providing some interesting insight to the early Eastern Zhou era.
 
In fact, I've not stopped reading Chinese history books itself.  The more I read though, the more I despair over finding certainties in terms of facts, but then again, it's not a phenomena exclusive to Chinese history.

Hi guys! Thanks for showing interest.

That's no problem at all, the Three Kingdoms (if one chooses to put aside much of the death and tragedy involved for a moment) was an exciting time in Chinese history. The personalities involved, the further development of Chinese culture and identity, literature and sciences, the new military tactics and technologies all make this a very rich part of Chinese history. I would be honored to contribute to whatever thread you wish to post!

Yeah, we're all busy in real life, so no excuses are necessary. Smile Yes, "certainties" are certainly (lol) not exclusive to Chinese history. The one greatest drawback I find in China's classical histories - excluding Sima Qian's history - is the state control over the writing of history. This was the case starting with the Book of Han. Without independent works of history by scholars unfettered by court oversight, the histories are in some cases heavily biased towards the court's point of view and desire to keep out politically sensitive material that might help us in modern times to understand the past even more. A shame. But that's how life was back then! It revolved around the needs and desires of the emperor, who was the supreme judge, lawgiver, commander, and priest of his empire.
 
Regards,
Eric

Hi guys! I'm a newcomer in AE, but I have been a user of Chinese Wikipedia for a long time. I can get access to most historical materials written in Chinese.  So you can call me to help if you need some original sources.
