comment Where can I find Cantonese poetry?
@gaidal The question is still a bit poor, however I doubt it will encourage tons of answers, so I'm going to reopen it. If it goes bad, I might need to re-close it (but I doubt that).

comment How should I understand 集合?
Welcome to Chinese Language and Usage Beta! Hello ChouLin. Usually we prefer longer and more elaborated answers on short answers. If you can improve your answer by adding detail, context, examples, and backing up with references, this would increase your answer's quality. Poor answers risk being down-voted and subsequently removed.

comment Benefits of Learning a Chinese Dialect in Addition to Standardized Mandarin
It's ok if it's specific. Language-specific questions are ok there. (Don't repost there right away, that is cross-posting and is highly discouraged.)

Don't you think this question would be more suitable for Linguistics? :)

comment 9 Questions from the movie Red Sorghum (红高粱)
Growler, for the next times: asking multiple questions is ok. :) I suggest not all at the same time, but yeah... :) Also, that will increase your chances to get more upvotes, by the way.

Have you tried Google Translate? I know it isn't usually reliable, but maybe with a fixed expression...

comment Where can I find more cartoon videos like BBC's Muzzy for a young child to learn Mandarin?
@Dan I'm closing this as NC for now. Please refer to our FAQ point "Can I ask for resources?", it will you give you enough info. Please note that closed questions are not just gone. You can still improve it according to the guidelines. After you do it, just flag it for moderator attention and let us know, we'll reopen it. My best suggestion is: make it as narrow and scope you can. If your question asks for a small range of answers only, you're set. The problem is with broad and open-ended questions. :) Hope this helps.

comment problem with 要 - it seems to have several meanings
Arika, mind to add something more? Your answer triggered the low quality flag, make sure to write a meaningful answer (3 or 4 lines is enough).

comment Why do Chinese translations of English names sound very inaccurate?
"because Japanese doesn't have "r" but "l"" I'd say the opposite... Chinese has the L while Japanese has R.

comment Regional pronunciations of standard Mandarin
Aristide, list questions are usually not fit for Q&A sites. Sometimes short lists are ok or with strict requirements. But in your case, it seems it's much broader.
