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 What does this mean: 操
This question appears to be off-topic because it looks like a vulgar word was posted as a joke.

This answers a small part of the question, so it looks good to me.

comment Can anyone tell me what this means?
There are several tools that will try to recognize a character as you write it with your mouse. For example, try MDBG and click on the paint brush next to the search box.

comment Meaning of 只 in 只把思念积压在我心头
Can you explain what you mean by "backlog"? Perhaps you mean "remains".

I think this does answer part of the question, @xiaohouzi, "What are the number-pairs?" I'm going to undelete.
