Managing redirects[edit]

It should be made sure first, if you find a "wrong" stroke order, that redirects to this wrong set might still be valid in themselves. Consider a traditional Chinese character shown with the wrong stroke order. If Japanese happens to be the same stroke order as the original image, and you edit it to display the "correct" stroke order, then the Japanese image will redirect to the wrong stroke order! So, redirects should be checked first and if unsure if the stroke order redirected to is right or wrong, copy the image before replacing it! The copied image should then be referred to by all redirects, meaning:

  1. Before: Korean -> Traditional Chinese & Japanese -> Traditional Chinese & Traditional Chinese == wrong stroke order (in traditional Chinese!)
  2. If you want to edit Traditional Chinese, do as follows:
  1. Copy Traditional Chinese to Japanese
  2. Redirect Korean to Japanese
  3. Edit Traditional Chinese
  1. Afterwards: Korean -> Japanese & Japanese == old Traditional Chinese & Traditional Chinese == new Traditional Chinese

Right now it sounds as if all redirects can stay the same, I hope I pointed out what I think needs to be done in such cases. --Tauwasser (talk) 17:39, 31 January 2009 (UTC)

Good call. How's this? --Swift (talk) 19:32, 31 January 2009 (UTC)

Changes proposed in Commons_talk:Stroke_Order_Project#Taiwan.27s_stroke_order_is_not_Imperial_China.27s[edit]

I made changes to the project page according to Commons_talk:Stroke_Order_Project#Taiwan.27s_stroke_order_is_not_Imperial_China.27s, but only to the English version. My French is very bad. I'd appreciate it if someone made corresponding changes to the French version. 01:44, 20 October 2009 (UTC)
