  • Obviously, this violates all the principles of Simple English. The question is what to do with it. The vocabulary alone uses at least 50 words which few readers will fully understand, and is really an academic essay rather than a serious attempt to write for a broader audience. What are we to do? There's nothing bad about the content for those who can understand it. But we might as well not exist if this sort of thing goes unchecked. Macdonald-ross (talk) 14:42, 24 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
    I reworked the intro to make it at least a bit more SE, but the rest is pretty much a wash as this much created a headache.. Not certain of anything in there is worth salvaging given the amount of translation that is needed to get it remotely into the proper language. Without a complete overhaul of the writing, it may be best to just delete it all as it is completely useless in its current form. --Creol(talk) 19:58, 24 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

And I started my work before the {{in use}} tag was added, so edit conflicts and such --Creol(talk) 20:00, 24 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

looks like we clashed. Anyway, propose to get rid of the scholarly orientalism section. And I think we should laso show more architecture, and fewer paintings. --Eptalon (talk) 20:09, 24 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Completely toss everything except for perhaps the first section ("Orientalism in architecture, art, and literature") and re-work that. That being said, if we want to dump it all and leave the intro, no objection there. This is not encyclopedic article in the way we see it.

I think it is time to cut this all the way back and send it to user space. Gotanda (talk) 04:08, 20 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Oops, sorry[change source]

I apologize, that edit with Against the current was me. I changed my name on English only a few years ago. I haven't been back to edit until now. I'm in the process of moving everything back over to Kansan, but I was logged in as Against the current to request a name merger on Meta, and didn't realize it would log me in over here.
