    can you do a quiz that has been translated????

    (if it has sorry for this message and plz tell me where to find if )
    This is a plea to whom ever is in-charge of wuxiapedia to update the translations into it (or else start trying to get permission to put the content from the translators/editors).

    thankxxx

    then may I suggest you stop spamming this forum with meaningless posts. It sounds like you really don't have useful comments to add to queries besides "Oh I have no idea about the topic and I don't care, but I want to reply just for the heck of it."

    You may be one chatty fellow, and I don't want to sound harsh, but It's getting really annoying to find your no-purpose bits in the middle of a topic. Generally, I've found no "meat" in any of your posts. So please, consider contributing objective comments or refrain from posting distractions.

    Hahaha ... ironically, you're doing the same thing. Seeing how your topic has nothing to do with the original topic. Besides, chillax and leave it to the mods.

    Uhmm ... rabadi, aren't you supposed to ask a question? If you're not ... then can I?
    Because I'm somewhere in between,
    My love and my agony.

    I'll ask first. We are again at square one
    What the heck is 'But Sei Yan Fa'? (in the Twin Brothers - is this identical with The Legendary Siblings or is it 'Xia Ke Xing'?)

    Twin of Brothers was a recent TVB Series. Its based on a novel by Huang Yi (I think?) called Da Tang Shang Long Juen (Great Tang Twin Dragon Story). "But Sei Yan Fa" was a martial arts in the series, translates to something like "Doesn't Die Technique"

    My poor translation really and bliss is right about that okay I'll answer my first question according to the edition my mate translated to me the But Sei Yan was developed by Shek Zhi Hin himself and it was created by incorporating the best martial arts from the evil sects with Buddhist philosophies!

    Okay if we don't have any takers for a new question before Rabadi thinks of his question I'll post a new question,

    Name ALL the martial arts that Yang Guo knows

    What does 'Twin of Brothers' mean? Sounds like bad grammar
