Hello, Smee 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 Smee. What's the source for the picture you just uploaded? If you took it yourself then please write "I took this" or something to that effect so that others know where it came from. If it came from a site with a free copyright then you can just add the url (exact url, not the main url for a site). Thanks. mithridates aka 데이빛 04:03, 6 October 2006 (CEST)
Okay, that should be no problem. You can add the note to the page itself of the picture though, not the talk page. Just hit the edit button and you can write whatever you want and it'll appear at the bottom below the picture just as it would on any other page. Well, the notes on the talk page make it clear enough though so you don't have to worry about the ones that you've already written. mithridates aka 데이빛 16:06, 6 October 2006 (CEST)
...on all the new entries. I notice that you're doing a lot of temple stuff. That's great, but can you also look into adding some Flickr Images to articles that fall under Creative Commons licensing? For example, all of these pictures of Bulguksa are available for use on Galbijim. If you want to do new searches for usable pictures on Flickr, go to Advanced Search and click the Creative Commons box before you search. Thanks a lot.--Galbijim 02:09, 8 October 2006 (CEST)
- I've also got quite a few pictures of Bulguksa waiting to be uploaded.--Hater Depot 03:07, 8 October 2006 (CEST)
You mean just creating a category? That's pretty easy, just write something like this: [[Category:Smee's friends]] and then the page will be added to your friends. You can put categories under other categories if you want, so the category Smee's friends could be put under the larger category Smee, and Smee could be put under the category 멋쟁이. As for portals, having one for each province would be just great. Have you looked at some of the portals on Wikipedia? Here's one: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portal:Constructed_languages mithridates aka 데이빛 16:04, 15 October 2006 (CEST)
Oh, and also I'm sure you can see that Hater Depot is the category specialist here. He seems to have the whole category tree inside his head somewhere. mithridates aka 데이빛 16:08, 15 October 2006 (CEST)
To link to a category, do this: [[:Category:Hot babes Smee has dated]]. As far as lists vs. categories -- do both. The advantage of a list page is that, well, of course it will show up in Category:Lists, and it allows you to set up redlinks which you or somebody else can use to easily set up the new page.--Hater Depot 09:05, 16 October 2006 (CEST)
You might be interested in this page. I started it when I was finishing up cities and counties and by coincidence I just happened to be on Jeollanam-do. Just about every page has their logo and I still have to put on the rest of the cities and counties in the country. mithridates aka 데이빛 17:37, 17 October 2006 (CEST)
If you ever get the time, it would be super-duper if you could create Jeonnam articles based on the content that can be found here:

Since you're writing a lot of Gwangju stuff, you might be interested in seeing this site for resources that could be useful in the Gwangju sections of the wiki.--Galbijim 02:48, 10 November 2006 (CET)
Thanks for your interest on that project of mine, I was beginning to wonder if anyone even cared. The answer to your question is yes. I plan to create a whole load of categories for the proverbs. I will eventually make one giant list of all of them as well. I will also categorize them like Proverbs about money, proverbs about animals etc etc. I will get around to them. Just a little patience on that front. I also welcome anyone who can come up with a better idea than me about how to do it. In the end though, there will be several hundred proverbs included.

Hi, ever thought of making a template for pages in Jeollanam-do in the same vein as Template:Mexican? Since you've made a great deal of pages it would be good to have that as a navigation bar on the right. I was about to make one myself but I'm not sure exactly how many there are and how you'd like to organize it. You can just cannibalize the template by replacing the text with Jeollanam-do related stuff, and by changing the colour of the top bar too. mithridates aka 데이빛 04:23, 16 November 2006 (CET)
Oh, and BTW doing a search for Jeollanam-do on Google turns up the portal on the second page now. I added it to the Wikipedia page today too so that should bring it up some more in a bit. mithridates aka 데이빛 04:34, 16 November 2006 (CET)
That other wiki
I can only assume the only reason people sometimes write something there is because they don't know about this one. Since it only has 280 articles they're wasting their time. Not sure if you know this but I started that wiki too, before this one. Server slowness and wanting to tie a wiki into something else had me thinking of hosting it somewhere else but that's when Galbijim came up and the rest is history.
Seeing all the work you've put into the Jeollanam-do portal has made me want to make one on Seoul. Enough work would probably bring it to the first page, although it would probably take a lot more content considering how much more content there is online about the place. mithridates aka 데이빛 20:31, 22 November 2006 (CET)
- I'm excited about tackling Seoul, as well. I'm working with Geochang as a testing ground for how we can begin shaping city articles. Once I'm done with that one, I'll probably begin more thorough work on Seoul in a similar format.--Galbijim 02:51, 23 November 2006 (CET)
Hi, I changed the block to a one-day block because it seems to be a user that might be able to be reasoned with. Unless the image was something completely inappropriate. If the image itself was something really bad then a merciless block is fine. Was it just a club poster? mithridates aka 데이빛 12:09, 16 December 2006 (CET)
- I'm curious if a block was even needed. If it was a club poster, then we can just create a page for the club and thumbnail the poster. The wiki will likely begin to evolve in that direction, anyways, as more restaurants and bars learn about it and create/improve wiki pages for their establishments.User:Galbijim 12:30, 16 December 2006 (CET)
Okay, that's fine. I probably could've let it slide, but the poster plus the comments made it seem like it was just advertising for one event (the club's opening), which is why I considered it spam. Oh, and yeah, it was a flyer for the event. Smee 12:31, 16 December 2006 (CET)
It'll probably be a good idea to come up with a detailed policy for what deserves a block and what doesn't (get Hater Depot's input too). Automated machine spam gets a block forever but something like this should get a note ("please don't use advertising language on the wiki") then a warning if needed and then a block. But there's quite a bit of other grey-area stuff that we should probably go over on the community portal over the next few days. mithridates aka 데이빛 12:45, 16 December 2006 (CET)
