I'm a student majoring in Languages (branch: Linguistics), currently working as a freelance translator. I've recently discovered Dropbox and I'm going to use it for my needs! :)

I love
Languages, Movies (Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Tarantino, etc.), Music, 3D Graphics, books and so on.

Appointed ♦ Moderator Pro Tempore on Linguistics SE, Chinese SE and the Russian SE site. If you're interested in other Stack Exchanges, try the Italian SE site.

I like to lurk on other sites' Metas. Meta is fun!

My feature requests:

  1. Alert a moderator when an answer is improved after a post notice
  2. Automatically add chat event to the community bulletin (or make it easier)
  3. Give 10k users the ability to see the total count of flags they've handled

Moderator issues: If you have concerns or want to contact me about my moderation, you can find/ping me either in the Linguistics SE chat room or CL&U chat room; if I'm not there or I'm "idle", just ping me! Please avoid using my personal email for such things. Use the chat rooms.

As xiaohouzi79 said, the tone is not "guessable", but at least the rest is understandable.

comment Chinese input on Windows based on pinyin and tones
Honestly? No, I don't have to type it a lot, so I haven't looked into that... I simply drag the characters with the marks I don't have on my keyboard, which means first and third tone, from a character palette on my system. :)

@xiaohouzi79 Note that he's not asking how to type chinese, but how to type pinyin with tones (just saying in case you didn't understand). :)

comment The question about “很好”
Hello Zann, my question is tagged with "Mandarin", so you're not really answering my question. You can put your answer in a comment under my question though, if you wish to help those who learn Cantonese.

Can you rephrase the question to include also Mac, for example? So we don't ask several questions for the same subject.
