I've been studying Chinese since 2006, but I've only made short visits to China, so my progress is slow. I've built some study software to help me learn. I also participate on tatoeba.org.

My other hobby is board game design.

comment 血: xuè , xiě, what's the difference?
For your question about the quality standards, I suggest you post a question on the meta site with the text of the versions that got rejected. My guess is that it was too short. Adding some context for the question will usually solve that.

comment What studios produce dubbed TV shows?
Helpful editing is encouraged, @Village. It looks to me like Alenanno just removed a bullet point because it looked odd. If you really wanted that bullet point, just put it back.

As I posted on meta, I think this question is too open-ended and chatty to fit on the Stack Exchange network.

Fascinating. All my teachers have been from Taiwan, so I had no idea.
