The following links were removed from the article per the External links - what not to link to guidelines.
- An interactive map of Yunnan, with accurate place names, topographic, population, and tourist features can be found at http://www.yunnanexplorer.com/map
- An introduction to the minorities in Yunnan can be found at http://www.yunnanexplorer.com
- If you play the game of Go (wei qi in Chinese), or you have friends who do, consider getting some Yunzi, China's best Go stones. They are quite different from Japanese stones and much more affordable. See the Go Wiki Sensei's Library page http://senseis.hexdust.net/?Yunzi on these.
One other link was removed that isn't listed above, as it's on the spam blacklist.
I want to restore the last one. I don't think it violates policy. Sensei's Library is another Wiki; why not link there when they have good info too specialised for us? Presumably whoever deleted this would not want SL's links to us deleted. The only alternative I see is to link to the all-Chinese site of the vendor, not good in an English Wiki. Anyone else care to comment? Pashley 01:05, 9 January 2007 (EST)
No comment in months, so I restored it. Pashley 02:41, 26 April 2007 (EDT)
 What's in a name?
Someone recently added a page titled Honghe Hani and Yi Autonomous Prefecture, and links to it here. I think that should just be "Honghe", or perhaps "Honghe Prefecture" since our policy is to use the commonest English name for titles. e.g. We have Guangxi not "Guangxi Zhang Autonomous Region". There are a bunch of these; I think they should all be shortened. I'd already shortened several before it occurred to me to ask for comment first. Pashley 02:40, 26 April 2007 (EDT)
