Hello, Bundanggumin and welcome to the Galbijim wiki. If you are new to the concept of a wiki, please see the Tutorial for general information, or you may ask questions directly on the talk pages of other users or administrators. Though the wiki itself is only for pertinent and accurate information on Korea, you may do whatever you wish with your own user page (within the bounds of decency), including links to pages of your own, your own photo, introduction, and whatever else.
When leaving a message on a person's talk page you may sign your message simply by writing four tildes like this: ~~~~. This will leave your name and time the message was written so the user will know who wrote the message.
If you're not sure where to start, you may want to take a look at the list of wanted pages to see if there's a subject you'd like to start writing about. Another way to browse the wiki is to look at a random page, pages that have been viewed the most, or short pages that really need to be expanded.
We hope you enjoy your time here and we look forward to working together with you.

Hi, thanks for uploading the image of the arts centre. What is its source? mithridates aka 데이빛 03:13, 25 August 2006 (CEST)
- Hmm...I just grabbed it from Naver, however I believe I saw it on the Arts Center website. Having said that, I don't know if it is copyrighted or not. Worth looking into I suppose.
Okay, that would make it copyrighted so I'm going to delete it. It would be nice to have a picture taken by a user though. I was there about a month back but I didn't think to take a picture and I don't live in Bundang either so I probably won't be back for a while. mithridates aka 데이빛 04:10, 26 August 2006 (CEST)
Hi, please include source info every time you upload an image. This one looks like it's probably copyrighted too. You might want to try searching on flickr for images with a Creative Commons license which would enable them to be used here. mithridates aka 데이빛 03:36, 31 August 2006 (CEST)
Just making sure
Hi, looking at the image you uploaded it seems to be located on this page: http://www.flickr.com/photos/yoonsun/11755658/ with the copyright all rights reserved tag. On the larger list of all her photos here they all say 'this photo is public' but I *think* that just refers to the viewing status of the image, not the copyright. I deleted the image just in case but if there's something else that proves it has no copyright then let me know. AFAIK only photos with the CC tag can be used in this way. mithridates aka 데이빛 04:23, 6 September 2006 (CEST)
Once more about pictures
Hi - you need to specify the url that a picture comes from when uploading it. Some pictures on flickr are copyrighted and others aren't, but the burden of proof is on the uploader to show that it comes from a page that specifies that it can be used. Please add the url to this picture that you uploaded. Thanks. mithridates aka 데이빛 20:06, 19 September 2006 (CEST)
I don't think there is a 'target' number of pages to be in one category or even an 'ideal maximum'. But I have said before that I don't see much point in jamming everything Bundang-related into the top-level Category:Bundang. It seems much cleaner and more user-friendly, to me anyway, to put the schools just in the schools category, the restaurants just in the restaurants category, etc. I think when people see the sub-categories they naturally expect it to contain articles which aren't already in the top category. To me that just makes the most sense and provides the best experience of finding useful information.--Hater Depot 09:09, 16 October 2006 (CEST)
Just wanted to say I enjoyed reading the things you posted regarding the history of Bundang, of Sunae, and of the subway names in Bundang. Smee 16:38, 22 October 2006 (CEST)
That's a very cool idea. Just put them with the title in Korean, and put them in Category:Korean proverbs or something like that, and add that category to Category:Korean language. Also, put them in the dictionary categories like Category:Ko 다, etc.--Hater Depot 01:30, 7 November 2006 (CET)
Hi - here's how the categories work: ignore whether the consonant is double or not so 자다 and 짜다 would both be 자. You also ignore the consonant after the first one, so 깎다 would be 가 and 먹다 would be 머. This is the way paper dictionaries work too. mithridates aka 데이빛 03:04, 8 November 2006 (CET)
Also, here's the first page that shows a list of words and how the category works: Korean words from 가 mithridates aka 데이빛 03:07, 8 November 2006 (CET)
- Yeah, I'm gonna take a few minutes to clean up the categories to be like a paper dictionary. I didn't realize we had some superfluous ones in there. Thanks for bringing that up!--Hater Depot 03:14, 8 November 2006 (CET)
I don't think we need extra articles for each word just to highlight the individual meanings, if there's not going to be any other difference among them.. I could see separate articles if they were getting to be long and listing lots of usage examples, but so far they aren't. Similarly I'm not sure we need to have 듣다 and 듣.. thoughts?--Hater Depot 02:16, 11 November 2006 (CET)
Can you link me a specific example of where you noticed this occurring?--Galbijim 03:09, 18 November 2006 (CET)
- Not happening for me. Might be a cache issue on your end. Something definitely looks buggy on your end, looking at how your messages are being reflected on Recent Changes.--Galbijim 03:19, 18 November 2006 (CET)
Hi, just thought I'd let you know if you haven't noticed it yet that your article has been chosen to go on the front page for about a month or so. We were looking at having a vote for the next article but yours stood out from the rest and so we decided to put it up first and then give it another month before we pick the next one. Thanks for all the work you've put into it. mithridates aka 데이빛 19:35, 5 December 2006 (CET)
The Section Header bug is one of our few remaining bugs that are needing to be resolved. We're hoping to have it resolved over the next week or so, as it's really tricky. Same with the restoring of the Edit Toolbar..--Galbijim
Pending wiki restore
Heads up. We're doing a backup and restore of the wiki, dated up to Jan.15. We need to do this, as we're working on some problems with images. You might want to avoid posting anything new, but also save your edits made today (just in case you don't get this message in time, I've gone ahead and saved your edits today.)- Galbijim
The skin is buggy, hence why we don't have Edit Toolbar, have weird looking section headers, and no ability to upload images. We have a designer who is re-coding the skin over the next 2 weeks, to rid the wiki of these bugs. More regular updates can be found here.- Galbijim
한자 Entries and Stroke Order Graphics
Hi. I've noticed that the 한자 entries in general feel very unplanned. By that, I mean (i) there is an abbreviated box on the right that gives 음 and 훈 readings, etc., but then sometimes this same info is repeated on the left in the character heading, (ii) the selection of vocabulary items listed seems somewhat haphazard, and the format certainly is (eg. 母 has 한자 first while 門 has 한글 first), (iii) I can't make out the difference between the "see also" and "counterparts" lists, nor why some characters are included and others are not [of course I'm as guilty as anyone with this one. maybe more so ^^], (iv) comments (mostly by me) on what to watch out for are random, (v) the fundamental issue of what makes a 음/훈 pair worthy of glossing has not been set as far as I can tell, and I know I have just been going by a rough feeling (see this link on the off chance you don't see what I mean). So I'm not sure that having a standard for how the stroke order graphics are shown on the page will change the underlying disorder. Since you asked, however, it seems that stroke order is not something most users would need (once they get past the beginner stage) so having to take the additional step of clicking on the image doesn't seem unreasonable. Looking at the site you are pulling those images from, however, I have to say that their animated graphics appeal more to me than the graduated shades of red or the b&w graphics. Those are my thoughts on the matter, for however little they're worth. 고생 많으십니다. *^^*
Currently, you are placing the image above the body text and it is pushing all the content down to the bottom of the page. When editing, I would suggest placing the Stroke Order image markup below the body text, so it is viewable when a user first clicks on the page and doesn't have to scroll down to look for the main content. --Galbijim 18:00, 26 January 2008 (PST)
