Thanks for the message.
Thanks for your message in Japanese. Do you actually speak Japanese or did you substitute the korean words? I think I understood it all but I'm not a native speaker. I've been told it sounds like Osaka dialect... esp. the spoken word やんね. And by the way, are you Canadian? Take care, Ash

Korean language Mainpage
We need a good mainpage for the language. I think we should use the wikipedia one for now and have contributors pick away or edit it over time. Figured I'd ask you first, since you and some others have contributed a lot to the subject, so far. Thoughts?--Galbijim 12:53, 28 December 2005 (UTC)
- Taking a short look at it it's hard to do better than that, I suppose. We would need to alter some things, maybe North Korean naming conventions. I see they use the N. Korean system of romanization when talking about their place names but we're an expat wiki not an encyclopedia and don't need to be that exact. I never write 시 as si for example, always shi because I think the other way is stupid. Maybe I'll make up a template - this article needs to be galbijim-ized or something like that so people know they're allowed to alter it to make the information as useful for an expat as possible. mithridates aka 데이빛 14:38, 28 December 2005 (UTC)
History of Korea
Can you also take a look at a wikipedia template that I'm trying to use on the right side of history pages, but it seems to default to the left?
What is the deal with the Supreme Court decisions? You're not translating them yourself, are you? Hater Depot 18:44, 29 December 2005 (UTC)
- Heh, no. I found them on their website and court decisions have no copyright so I thought I'd put them up there for anyone who's curious. I just got the last one up last night though. mithridates aka 데이빛 00:07, 30 December 2005 (UTC)
Can you add the 'Welcome to Galbijim' and 'For First Time User' boxes to replace the current box on the top of test page? I can't seem to do it without buggering up the whole thing.--Galbijim 17:13, 4 January 2006 (UTC)
Hang on a minute Dave .
David : Please, please don't reorganize any of these new Korean words I'm doing for now. I'll show you the book and it will all make sense. The ROOT is 가 , but there are prefixes and or suffixes to it. I'll explain later, but for now, don't reorganize it please.
I just uploaded the new Logo.jpg. Can you put that on the top left spot? I can't seem to find the page where I do that.--Galbijim 16:29, 6 January 2006 (UTC)
What happened to the logo in the top left? I can't see it. Also, what is the link to that logo template? I want to experiment with something.--Galbijim 10:14, 24 January 2006 (UTC)
- The logo looks fine to me. It's right here, safe and sound. What do you mean by logo template? mithridates aka 데이빛 13:32, 24 January 2006 (UTC)
Can you swap the current logo for
http://wiki.galbijim.com/images/4/4c/Galbijim3.png? New one has a transparent background and will contrast better with the new wiki look.--Galbijim 09:51, 27 January 2006 (UTC)

We were doing some URL maintenance and redirection last night, so you might have tried visiting the forums when we were doing something. Try now, should be fine. If not, clear your cache and try again.--Galbijim 03:47, 14 January 2006 (UTC)
Cleared cache, nothing doing. Even tried with IE (I use Firefox), same deal. Clicked every link on the page, always getting the same error...--Atkinson 04:00, 14 January 2006 (UTC)
Sorry about this. It should be working now.--Galbijim 06:27, 14 January 2006 (UTC)
Is there a way for us to have a global template that, upon setting, will appear on every page of the wiki? This is something similar to what Gabriel says he can do with the future job list, but I was wondering about how we can get the Menu
on the margin of every page, in the same way that the the logo and toolboxes appear. We need more cross-promotion of the forums on the wiki.--Galbijim
12:25, 16 January 2006 (UTC)
- Why not just change the message on the top and put in a really small template there? We could take out the bit about music stations... Galbijim | Forums | Blah <--like that. I'll see what I can do. mithridates aka 데이빛 12:44, 16 January 2006 (UTC)
My current project on Wikipedia is Korean movies. I'm sure I can figure out how to move the articles over easily enough, but how can I make a movie infobox similar to the one over there?--Hater Depot 00:50, 25 January 2006 (UTC)
- Oh, and just in general I'd like to make some template infoboxes for museums and temples, etc.--Hater Depot 00:51, 25 January 2006 (UTC)
Great idea. Don't forget to link to YesAsia for a vendor for Korean movies.--Galbijim 07:05, 25 January 2006 (UTC)
- Is that the best one for sure? I don't know a thing about movie vendors. mithridates aka 데이빛 07:17, 25 January 2006 (UTC)
- When I was in the US I bought from YesAsia and [annyoung.com], both were good.--JackSeoul 07:37, 25 January 2006 (UTC)
- Okay. If there's a way to find a movie by inserting a number directly into a url then we could put it into the template. mithridates aka 데이빛 07:47, 25 January 2006 (UTC)
New article function
I'm trying to add this template to the Sitenotice, but it's not working. Can you have a look?--Galbijim 15:44, 6 April 2006 (CEST)
- We need the inputbox function - it can be downloaded here. If you don't have direct access to the folder then G can put it in in a snap when he gets back. mithridates aka 데이빛 16:49, 6 April 2006 (CEST)
when are you going to starbucks?
- I'm taking off now but I need to do a few things along the way. Maybe by 4? mithridates aka 데이빛 07:48, 3 July 2006 (CEST)
Am I still an admin? Plus, wow, I didn't realize how much I'd have to do over. But this time it'll all come out right.--Hater Depot 10:37, 4 July 2006 (CEST)
After reading this article, I think its about high time that we get going on Chinese content. If you want, go ahead and email Gabriel about what specifically you'd need in particular.--Galbijim 12:38, 14 July 2006 (CEST)
Forums and The Community Portal
What's up with the forums?
Ditto the community portal: http://wiki.galbijim.com/Galbijim:Community_Portal
The Chosun Bimbo 16:19, 16 July 2006 (CEST)
- It looks like the forums haven't had a really bad hack and I think it'll get restored soon with an extra security patch. The other stuff is spam so we just need to update the spam blacklist. I don't do any direct work in that area but that's what I heard. mithridates aka 데이빛 16:29, 16 July 2006 (CEST)
Yeah, you're right.. its name on the sign and card has Hokkaido written in kanji, then "Izakaya" written in English. I guess I was feeling too lazy to put in the kanji, and it should at least be moved to Izakaya (Anyang) or some such.--Hater Depot 03:52, 23 July 2006 (CEST)
Like the website, think it's a great idea. Good luck!
- Thanks! We only need about twenty times the number of articles we have now. Please tell every single person you see for the next month about it. ^^ mithridates aka 데이빛 18:54, 3 August 2006 (CEST)
I added you to my blog (zieglerzone.com). Will do what I can. :-)
Hi, I note that you have recently put Gamcheon-myeon under Gimcheon. If you read what's there already you'll notice that the information previously in this article is all about Gamcheon-myeon in Yecheon. There is a fair bit of repetition in names of myeons, dongs, etc. and we need some way to differentiate. In Yecheon there is also a Yongmun-myeon and I expressed it as Yongmun-myeon (Yecheon) to differentiate it from a similarly-named myeon that is somewhere in Gyeonggi-do. There's also the matter of Nam, Dong, Seo, Buk-myeons, Jung-gus, etc., that we have scattered about Korea in abundance. I don't know where one would find an alphabetical listing of all these divisions in Korea, so we could check to see where there is duplication, or maybe we should just take the bull by the horns and write them out the long way.....
--Skookum 08:34, 5 August 2006 (CEST)
Thanks for your message on discussion page of mine. I want to write an page about brief recipe for Suyuk. Where can I write it? --Shineyhj 03:10, 1 September 2006 (CEST)
Looking thru the list of categories, I notice that there are those there that are empty - they used to just disappear when all links from or to them were eradicated. Now they just drift there like flotsam, taking space on the "Category" list and getting in the way of any attempt to edit that list. For example there is the category "Bbbbanchan" (probably something I did when I was using a stuttering keyboard. We don't need it on the list; never will. Likewise, the hollow categories "Battered food" and "Battered foods" lurk just below "Batter-fried". Apparently saving them as empty files doesn't work any more - is there another way to dispose of unwanted categories?
Also, even though the sub-categories "Anyang" and "Ansan" exist, listed as such beneath the category "Gyeonggi-do," neither of them appear on the "list of categories." What stops a category from not appearing, and how can we get it to do so?
These may seem like picayune issues but there's not much use editing categories if we can't delete or list them. Please fix this or acquaint me with the tools to do so.
--Skookum 07:55, 2 September 2006 (CEST)
Here's another one: "Blood." Go to the list of categories and click on "Blood" and you get a page that says only Category:Food, with no articles. But go to Pi sundae and you find the category "Blood." Click on it here or click on: Category:Blood Category:Blood below and you will find it leads you to another blood category page with two articles listed. How can the category list be salvaged?
--Skookum 08:09, 2 September 2006 (CEST)
yes, Those "unused categories" can go - I redid "Caves" into a proper category, so what is left is redundant. But there are plenty more in there. This is just so funky - I think maybe a hyphen might interfere with listing as a category - at least two items I had trouble with were hyphenated. And perhaps cities - but, no - Gwangju is on the list....
Here's more -
"Geography of Seoul"
"Fried seafood" (I made that into "Fried food" and that latter category doesn't appear in the list of categories).
"Fruits" (there's already fruit)
oh, there's lots more, but I gotta go now....
--Skookum 10:11, 2 September 2006 (CEST)
Hi - you don't need to rename pages in that way - we generally follow Wikipedia naming conventions except with some Korean terms.
mithridates aka 데이빛 04:07, 6 September 2006 (CEST)
To get around the problem of alphabetization in categories, do category sorting, like so: Karr, John Mark.--220.127.116.11 04:27, 6 September 2006 (CEST)
It's not working. See Jack London

- Yes it is. It's under L. mithridates aka 데이빛 20:09, 7 September 2006 (CEST)
How many of them are we going to keep? The Bondi Meat Pie Shop, ok, that seems worth noting even after its passing. But I'm not sure I see the utility in recording the passing of every random shabu shabu place, especially considering how often things go out of business here. I mean there is a shoe shop near my work which has gone through three incarnations in as many months.--Hater Depot 05:15, 13 September 2006 (CEST)

Keeping with the feed theme, can try to poke around for a suitable feed for movie showtimes and TV programming? TV listings can be found here and movies here.--Galbijim 05:24, 26 September 2006 (CEST)
Hi, at the moment I can't find the source. I googled something, and eventually found the picture, but now I can't find it. I'm going to upload a picture I took until I can find the source of the other one. Thanks. 18.104.22.168 11:42, 6 October 2006 (CEST) <----This was Smee Smee 11:43, 6 October 2006 (CEST)
Here's a link to some more out-of-copyright books.--Hater Depot 15:40, 9 October 2006 (CEST)
- I can upload the books you requested on the Marmot's Hole. They're ready to go on my computer, but I can't upload them here, because they're larger than your server is configured for. Let me know what you'd like to do. --Zonath 18:07, 9 October 2006 (CEST)
I don't know if you've noticed, but this page is listed in Category:Blood. As cool as that is I'm not sure it's intended behavior.--Hater Depot 18:24, 9 October 2006 (CEST)

The images on Fukuoka visa run appear to clutter up the content, based on the screen resolution that I'm seeing it as. What about moving some images to the left side?--Galbijim 14:10, 15 October 2006 (CEST)
Hi. I'd like to synthesize the information on Jeollanam-do eventually, which would include categories such as "Temples in Jeollanam-do" or "Mountains in Jeollanam-do," and perhaps more specialized information on each county. How do I create categories? And, I guess I should ask this first, are categories a good idea? My point in trying to eventually do this is b/c I want prospective residents to take a look at this site and see exactly what's around. I think eventually it'd be cool to have portal pages for each province, which would organize all the relevant categories onto one page. Thanks for your help Smee 16:00, 15 October 2006 (CEST)
Cool, thanks for showing me that page. How do copyrights work for that? I ask b/c I think it'd be cool to also have the mascots for each county. If you were able to upload symbols, maybe I can upload pics of mascots. Smee 05:48, 18 October 2006 (CEST)
Hotels/Motels in Jeonnam
Hi, on the love motel page I put up two links of searchable directories of love motels in Seoul/Gyeonggi. I was wondering if you knew of any such thing for Jeollanam-do (or, actually, any place in Korea outside of Seoul/Gyeonggi). With my limited Korean skillz I poked around Naver, but all I could get was a selection of their 10 top choices. If you know of any such websites, could you pass them along? Thanks. Smee 13:58, 19 October 2006 (CEST)
Recycling the town logo?
I note that the logo on the template for "Administrative divisions of Yeoju" has a image entitled "Hwaseong logo.gif" Do both places use the same logo, is it mistitled, or is it misconnected to Yeoju?
great site for info
not sure if this is the best place to write this but anyway we'll see how we go.
I have a global recruiting company that is planning on launching a website for recruiting teachers in Korea.
A teacher in Korea told me about your website.
I was putting together some frequently asked questions when I landed on here and checked out what you guys had put together.
It is truly amazing. The amount of info you have beats anything I have seen in the past.
I was hoping to speak with someone about linking your website with mine to simply give info on Korea and teaching in Korea to newbies coming over and general questions for those in need.
If one of the admin guys could contact me I would be really appreciative.
