Hello, Galbijim 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.

Hallo du. Don't forget to enclose the page address in square brackets when writing a redirect, like this:
And not like this:
mithridates aka 데이빛 12:00, 24 November 2005 (UTC)
Hee hee, want to know how to do that? I just found out myself.
- How do I add links/images up there?
Just like any other page. I'll show you, just a sec. Just delete the content and resave it this time though instead of deleting the whole page.
Click edit on the page to see how to use the template. You write "speech=" and then whatever you have to say afterwards.

Yes! Our first vandalism! Actually they changed it back right away so I think they were just experimenting but still, there it was. That reminds me, we need a sandbox. I'll put one up in a sec. mithridates aka 데이빛 16:26, 30 November 2005 (UTC)
Lakes and stuff
Damn, all this writing about lakes, rivers, islands and so on makes me want to actually see some of them. Let's make this site a smashing success so that we can actually do that when the weather warms up. mithridates aka 데이빛 09:43, 9 December 2005 (UTC)
Yeah, I'll go nuts with a camera. I've got the photo bug these days of taking pictures of anything to put up on here, whenever I'm out and about.--Galbijim 09:59, 9 December 2005 (UTC)

Actually, can you make it horizontal? I'm not inputing individual lawyer names, just company contact info--Galbijim 15:22, 19 December 2005 (UTC)
Just take a look at English-speaking lawyers and you'll see what I'm saying. I just want a table for every law firm to pretty up what I've done.--Galbijim 15:50, 19 December 2005 (UTC)
Oh, that. mithridates aka 데이빛 15:56, 19 December 2005 (UTC)
I put two of them in a table. I'm off to bed now (up at 5 am) but if that's good you can put the rest in or I'll put them in myself tomorrow. mithridates aka 데이빛 16:02, 19 December 2005 (UTC)
Well, we're getting closer, but let's scrap the idea until I can show you in person, or if I find an example on another wiki.--Galbijim 16:09, 19 December 2005 (UTC)
Okay. You can always fool around with the formatting, by changing the width and whatnot, or we could also have two or three in one column, that sort of thing. Maybe scribble out the way you want it to look on notepad and put the image up here so I can copy that. mithridates aka 데이빛 16:15, 19 December 2005 (UTC)
One more before I go to bed. Take a look at this standard box. Maybe this is cleaner.

Ok, I'll try it out and see how they look, thanks--Galbijim 16:26, 19 December 2005 (UTC)
I've made up a sample of what it could look like here. Half of it is in Italian but I think you can imagine. Replace pictures here and there...one thing though is that the font is already as small as it can get so sub-articles would have to be put in parenthesis, or perhaps put some in bold and others not. mithridates aka 데이빛 04:13, 21 December 2005 (UTC)
We're on the right track, however, the links are still jumbled and not orderly, which will not be good for usability, when we have a lot more entries for the directory. Rather than trying to cram it all in a horizontal directory, what about making it vertical, similar to what is on the main page now. We should have sub-directories listed for relevance. Maybe we can try what google does and have the most frequently trafficked articles and categories listed, and then have some relevant articles/categories along with it, and eventually say 'etc.'. This way the user can click thru on the directory and find a more robust, specific directory. In other words, the mainpage directory can be a 'sampling' directory to point the user in the right direction. ie, if they are looking for an article on severance and other related articles, they will see Working in Korea directory with some sample sub-directories listed. Clicking on 'Working in Korea' will take them to a whole page directory (that isn't fighting for space with Welcome/First-time Users/Other content, like on the mainpage). This secondary directory can basically organize and chronicle the relevant articles that fall within this subject. Then, when that sub-directory page gets too crowded, we can make sub-directory pages for the content that is eating up a lot of space. This basically how Google and Yahoo sort their directories.--Galbijim 06:07, 21 December 2005 (UTC)
- Hmm, okay. I assume then you're visualizing something like this but on a vertical level instead? I'll give it a bit more thought and see what I come up with. mithridates aka 데이빛 06:17, 21 December 2005 (UTC)
Yeah, I think that a DMOZ direction is a good first step to take for now.--Galbijim 06:24, 21 December 2005 (UTC)
Lots of pictures
Right here in case you haven't seen them before and are looking for some more. mithridates aka 데이빛 15:34, 28 December 2005 (UTC)
Hey, check out the changes I've made to the words you're putting up. That's the way to have them in subcategories to make words easier to find. mithridates aka 데이빛 15:33, 5 January 2006 (UTC)
Here's how you do it
Here's what I wrote on Timchi's talk page:
- Ah, don't do that. It goes [[Category:Ko 고]], then [[Category:Ko ㄱ]], then [[Category:Korean words]]. Each one is a subcategory of the other to make words easy to find.
mithridates aka 데이빛 15:43, 5 January 2006 (UTC)
It's the same as on the Korean Wiktionary and every other Korean dictionary BTW: http://ko.wiktionary.org/wiki/%EC%9C%84%ED%82%A4%EB%82%B1%EB%A7%90%EC%82%AC%EC%A0%84:%EA%B0%80%EB%82%98%EB%8B%A4_%EC%B0%BE%EA%B8%B0_%EB%9D%BC
Tim was accidentally logged in as me for that Korean stuff. Problem is, is the Korean vocab book he is writing from is sorted by root word, hence why he's categorizing by 가. We need to figure how we want to categorize root words.--Galbijim 15:49, 5 January 2006 (UTC)
I see. There's no problem with two categories though, or five or ten or whatever. Maybe the category [[Kr 가]] or something for Korean root? If you're adding a new category to the system I've already set up then it doesn't matter what it is. mithridates aka 데이빛 22:05, 5 January 2006 (UTC)
My only problem is for the people that will be looking for the specific Korean word, alphabetically and not by root. Tim is going to be putting up a load of words. Maybe I'll ask him to have the root category, as well as the word category.--Galbijim 03:07, 6 January 2006 (UTC)
... to accept the things I cannot change...
A couple small things that need editing by someone else:
"...new files, to view..." should be "... new files. To view..."
Also, it says to click the "copyright button" if it's copyrighted material, but I didn't see one when was uploading my pictures.
Might want to specify in the Use of Content paragraph by which licence things here are protected. It's only mentioned incidentally in the No contract; Limited licence section. --Atkinson 15:33, 10 January 2006 (UTC)
Thanks for the heads up. I can't edit the special pages directly, as that's a software thing. I'll have to get the wikimedia host to do that. As for the license, we're using the Wikimedia one, but we'll see if we can expand on that.--Galbijim 15:53, 10 January 2006 (UTC)
It could look like this, for example.
Galbijim main 0 10000 Galbijim forums
<center>We now have 9,822 articles; help us reach our first goal of 10,000!
mithridates aka 데이빛
It's a start, but given how vital the cross-promotion is from wiki to forums and galbi main, we need it a lot bigger than that.--188.8.131.52 18:32, 16 January 2006 (UTC)
