Translating Sanguo zhi pinghua in English

I'm currently getting help with a translation for Sanguo zhi pinghua! I don't think this has ever been done before...
A partial translation of page 1 is already up:
I don't know if this'll ever complete... but maybe it inspires others to help or continue. Stay tuned!

Standardizing translations

I just been reading this on kma:
what caught me eye was the poster says "My general criticism of other translation projects and translation compilations is (1) the compilation of translations from multiple translators leads to a lack of consistency and forces readers to adjust to new conventions every time they switch between entries, ..."
that is a fair point, wouldn't ya agree? I think we should do somethin like that here, y'know, standardize certain translations. List them somewhere. Wadda ya think?

Depicted people in Sanguo zhi pinghua images

I'd like to know which of all the Sanguo people are depicted in the 69 pages of the Sanguo zhi pinghua. Loads of them will probably feature the usual set of people (Liu Bei, Zhang Fei, Guan Yu, Cao Cao), but maybe here and there we will find some images of people who aren't depicted very often (already got a pic of Yellow Turban leader Zhang Liang for example). Anyone wanna help?
The images are all stored here:

Women during Han and Three Kingdoms

So, gotta say some women did some pretty nice things back in the day. While other women may not have done impressive stuff, but were still interesting people. Do any of you have any favorites among the ladies of these times?
ps: noticed we got a List of women of the Three Kingdoms. Still stubbed tho :( Let's update it shall we?

categorizing images

Right now I categorize them all like this:
abbreviation of the title, and then the dynasty during which it was released.
Would it not be better to make a folder per dynasty and then another folder for the book from which the images were taken?
---> Tang Dynasty Illustrations ----> Yan Liben paintings
---> Yuan Dynasty Illustrations ----> Sanfen shilüe illustrations

----> Sanguo zhi pinghua illustrations
----> Hua Guan Suo zhuan illustrations

---> Ming Dynasty Illustrations ----> Sanguo zhi tongsu yanyi illustrations

----> Ye Fengchun Sanguo yanyi illustrations

---> Qing Dynasty Illustrations ----> Zengxiang quantu Sanguo yanyi illustrations

----> "that other Qing SGYY" illustrations

And what to do with foreign art? Like Yoshitoshi's stuff. It was released at the time of Qing, but not in China.

Old articles

EDIT: Let's make this the official "check up on old articles"-thread!
Many old stuff on this site ain't very good (no offense). Appears most of em were done by User:Knightrez back in the day. Errm, his stuff was always error-filled (or fiction-filled). Perhaps we should delete ALL his work? :D
Orrr... just replace the old infobox with the new one and delete (which looks lot better and less messy) his text and make his stuff stubs?

Three Kingdoms 2010 TV Series Discussion

Who else is watching this/has watched this? It's superb! Just finished this. Casting was soooo well done. Cao Cao, Zhou Yu, Sima Yi and Diaochan were my favs. Sun Quan nice too.
Red Cliff in this was better than in the movie by John Woo lolz.
