Trung Quoc Don - 徵國單
Ch'i Kuk-Sŏn - Chō Kokutan
Hello 👋🏻, my name is Donald Trung (chữ Hán: 徵國單), and I am here mostly to upload pictures 📷 of coins and paper money 💴. 😉 I collect coins and banknotes from all over the world 🗺 but take a special interest in those from the Far-East. 🌏
I have a Trungfession to make, I really love 💘 seeing the pictures 📷 I upload here on Wikipedia, however that doesn't mean that I would replace a picture superior to mine, or that I would insert a picture 📷 I perceive as inferior in an article. I mostly stumble upon them in articles I have little prior interest in, and I rarely am the one to actually put them in Wikipedia. 😅 (update: Or I will look for subjects in Wikipedia and take pictures specifically for the articles. 📸)
Generally speaking I will actively look for items, objects, places, and companies that already have Wikipedia articles but don't have an image and will take a photograph of them, however I am limited by my geography and will only realistically look for what I can find. I will occasionally help with categorising items here on Wikimedia Commons, but when I create a new category it's usually for photographs that I will upload myself. I have seen pictures I’ve uploaded with previous accounts used outside of Wikimedia projects such as in Indian, Finnish, German, Dutch, Turkish, Swedish, and American newspapers 📰, used on websites for local projects and even a charity. Reusing my content doesn't require my permission, but it would be most kind to inform me when you do (you know, for bragging rights Face-wink.svg).
If you want to use my pictures 📷 then you can attribute them as "Donald Trung Quoc Don (徵國單) / Wikimedia Commons CC-BY-SA-4.0", this is the license only for the pictures I took, those I uploaded that were taken by other people have their own respective licenses..
If you want me to take a picture 📷 of something just ask. 😉🖼

Chữ Nôm quote[edit]

"You are not able to read Chữ Nôm unless you can understand Chữ Hán" is as ridiculous as "You cannot understand 'len', 'ô tô' or 'cà phê' unless you are able to speak French".

Original "mission" on Wikimedia Commons[edit]

Explaining my reasoning behind my Wikipedian expansions and how it relates to my “mission” here on Wikimedia Commons[edit]

System-search.svgSee also: User:Donald Trung/Defunct websites on Oriental numismatics (and why it’s important to import images to Wikimedia Commons).
The type of picture 📷 Wikimedia Commons is missing… although ironically the example I use are Northern Song dynasty coins which Wikimedia Commons DOES have enough of. 😅

Primal Trek (primaltrek) by Gary Ashkenazy (גארי אשכנזי )[edit]

In response to what's written below I had acted hostile towards Beetstra, I see that my response wasn't how I should have handled it and apologised. I preserve what's written below for historical value.
