This seems tilted, could you fix it, please? --Basotxerri 18:50, 17 February 2017 (UTC) Hi Basotxerri, I've tried to. I hope it's better now. Regards, --Podzemnik 20:36, 18 February 2017 (UTC)
Better now, thank you! --Basotxerri 21:26, 18 February 2017 (UTC)
I have also seen that you have taken the liberty and inserted this map in nearly all of the articles about the Ming, that you have translated these maps in Spanish, French, Macedonian, Japanese, Dutch, Vietnamese, and even Chinese. I could only conclude from your vigorous persistence that you intend your maps to be the main reflection of the Ming across global academics. I must say I have a great contention with your assertions, for you have chosen to depict the Dynasty in its final phase, merely little over half a century before its collapse. Why are you choosing this period to reflect nearly ALL of the Ming? It is as if someone chose to depict the Roman Empire in the 400s or the Ottoman Empire in 1910s as a representation of ALL of it. Especially as you can see clearly that nowhere in the entire section for the Ming dynasty in nearly all languages have a map that depicts the dynasty at its greatest extent? I must ask you, have you seen these maps at all of the Ming during the first five Emperors?
You should know that for nearly 50+ years the empire looked like what is depicted above, yet you seem to only focus on the Empire in its final phase. That is simply strange. For if you would go to, say: the maps of the USSR, Ottoman, Roman, and Byzantine empires, as well as the Spanish Empire in the new world, Imperial Japanese of WW2 and Nazi Germany. Each and every one of them have a map of the empire at its greatest territorial extent, each of them also at least have maps that details the empire at its "middle phase" of its lifespan (most noticeably the Byzantine Empire during the reign of Heraclius and Alexius Kommenos) and a map that details its final phase before collapse (Third Reich in 1944-1945, Roman Empire in 450, Ottoman Empire of WW1 etc) In the case of the Third Reich and the Imperial Japanese Empire, their "empire at greatest extent" is not more than a decade~ yet if you go to their page its still presented that way.
Hi there! I've made this map based on the sources provided in the description. I didn't translate it to any other languages but Czech. I focused on the dynasty's greatest extend because I just did :) It'll be great if you'd come up with your own map so we can compare and discuss it. Regards, --Podzemnik (talk) 12:59, 2 May 2017 (UTC)
