Military equipment of South Korea[edit]

Hello! Kudos to you for adding more information on the article. But could you provide source for some of the equipments you listed please? The quality of the article must be improved, and one of the things many South Korean military-related articles lack is sources and citations. Anyway, keep up the good work!

License tagging for Image:100 5224-1 1.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:100 5224-1 1.jpg. Wikipedia gets hundreds of images uploaded every day, and in order to verify that the images can be legally used on Wikipedia, the source and copyright status must be indicated. Images need to have an image tag applied to the image description page indicating the copyright status of the image. This uniform and easy-to-understand method of indicating the license status allows potential re-users of the images to know what they are allowed to do with the images.

Korea[edit]

Your addition for "first watermark" seems like nonsense- vandalism. But seeing your talk page filled with these image disputes, I assume that you are a dedicated Wikipedian. (Wikimachine 06:13, 3 November 2006 (UTC))

Oh no, not at all. "Korean watermark" seems more agreeable, and perfectly fine with a ref. Keep going! (Wikimachine 04:53, 4 November 2006 (UTC))

Greetings from WangKon936[edit]

Hey EasternKnight. Thanks for the shout-out. I haven't really read any of your articles on either wiki or AllEmpires. Any you'd like to point out that's representative of your work? Take care! WangKon936 00:23, 14 February 2007 (UTC)

Goguryeo[edit]

Because Goguryeo is a local Chinese kingdom, I am glad you asked, since most Korean is brain washed by the government propaganda. Goguryeo get Tang's permit to claim his Kingship. They use Chinese to record everything. And it is Sila asked Tang to conquer Goguryeo, and therefor Sila can unite the Korea. Before Ming dynasty, Korea never rule the north bank land of "Han" river. So please do some research not only in Korean. You will find you were cheated before. And I just read from news your government just add another 1000 years history to the textbook, but without common agreement by the scholarship. Well, congratulation. Korea now has the most significant and longest history in the world. "Awesome"! --Yeahsoo 04:28, 25 February 2007 (UTC)


Wow the above person is fucking stupid lol. - —Preceding unsigned comment added by 203.24.19.228 (talkcontribs)

Wow, who is the one that is barking now ? Huh?[edit]

Why so upset? Look at your red blooded face. It is all about scholarship and research. If you can find any ancient document said Goguryeo is Korean country, then we do not need to argue here. I can show you bunch of ancient book and how Tang emperor approved Goguryeo king of his title.Even Goguryeo history document is written in Chinese. But if you keep talking in that rude way, It is just my last word to you.--Yeahsoo 05:12, 26 February 2007 (UTC)

      • This is the first time I heard "Three Savage States", you do not need to insult the ancient people just try to depart them from China. I just provide the record from ancient Chinese book,if you can not provide, then it is none of my business. I did not say Goguryeo is backward. I heard Korea has 6000 years history. and Chinese Charactors and paper were invented by Korean. How come you do not have any documents, and have to write on wood? Man you are way too emotional, I just don't like being called "bark", but you just keep yelling at me--Yeahsoo 23:29, 26 February 2007 (UTC)

"Again you insinuate all Koreans are ultra-nationalists. " I did not. And I know not all Koreans are ultra-nationalists. but it is not my fault people get this impression. Your goverment just change history book add another 1000 years history, with no common agreement in historians. and you know how many Chinese stuff are claimed invented by Korean. please do not try to explain asif they are real, I am tired of it. See those Korean history TV serials, all Chinese are bad guys and invaders, even worse than Japanese? While, Chinese still think Korean is good friend as since ancient time. For god's sake, Ming and Qing dynasty send army to help Korea defend against Japan and did not keep army after war. Even Gogurye is silla asked Tang to conquer. If waht your gov did is not brain washing, what is it? What is Korean trying to do? Build a grant Korean, like just in your history book, half China used to be Korean territory? Tell you what, a liar will never become true, even it is repeated a thousand times --Yeahsoo 00:16, 27 February 2007 (UTC)

Korean Armour[edit]

Hey, got your message and reminder. I'm just not going to have time right now to help you. I'm on a despute resolution team on Koguryo and Parhae and I'm still trying to improve the Battle of Noryang article. Maybe I can help later but not now. WangKon936 22:08, 14 March 2007 (UTC)

Yang Gaesomun[edit]

I don't see it as a "Chinese vs. Korean" situation; it's one user insisting on imposing his/her view on all of the articles he/she is editing despite an absolute lack of support from ancient sources, Korean or Chinese -- and, even worse, refusing to discuss it. --Nlu (talk) 04:56, 17 March 2007 (UTC)

Minor Edits[edit]

I would recommend that you limit checking "minor edit" to simple typos. Your edit to Japanese invasions of Korea (1592-1598) was marked "minor" but was a fairly significant edit. Some people use that flag to hide vandalism, and if you make a significant edit but mark the "minor edit" flag, some people might mistakenly think you are vandalizing articles. -- wrp103 (Bill Pringle) 01:13, 2 April 2007 (UTC)

Oh Sorry, I did not know. won't make the mistake again. Jegal 01:14, 2 April 2007 (UTC)


Proceeding with the Goguryeo mediation[edit]

Hello! : )

This is Daniel Bryant and Armed Blowfish from the Mediation Committee, and as you may be aware, we are mediating the Goguryeo Mediation Committee case.

We are sending you this message as you are one of the involved parties in this dispute. Recently, a private wiki was set up for private mediation by the Mediation Committee. As noted by the Mediation Committee policy on confidentiality, mediation is confidential, and therefore the Committee has decided in this case to hold all mediation discussions in this case on the private wiki. Therefore, we need you to get an account so the case can proceed.

To request an account on the private Mediation Wiki, please click this link to email Armed Blowfish. Please include "Goguryeo" somewhere in the subject, e.g. "Private wiki account request for Goguryeo mediation", to note that this email has highest priority. If you do not have email enabled on your account and are unable to use the mail feature, please let us know on Armed Blowfish's talk page.

Thank you so much,
Daniel Bryant and Armed Blowfish (mail), 04:41, 26 April 2007 (UTC)

Would it be possible for you to do what is outlined above as soon as possible? Many of the parties are itching to begin, and it'd be great if you could get on board too. Cheers, Daniel Bryant 05:39, 4 May 2007 (UTC)

images I took 2007[edit]

Yes the images

they have been annoying me for all this time. I know I said that I would upload them but right now, I haven't any time. I'll try and upload them this week.

Sorry for the delay, the images are fairly useful. Good friend100 02:49, 25 September 2007 (UTC)



Korean Casualties[edit]

The military casualties are with the Japanese NOT Korean Army. These men are treated with contempt by Koreans, they were tratiors. It is an insult to the victims of the Japanese occupation to consider them Korean casualties. They assumed Japanese names and should be considered Japanese. As for civilian casualties, you seem to trying to pick the highest number. We need to pick the correct number, not the highest. The opinions Dower and the Korean source carry more weight than R. J. Rummell. The Korean study of the population is very clear that losses were not that significant. My question to you is why do you disregard the Korean source and pick Rummell?--Woogie10w (talk) 02:09, 4 March 2008 (UTC)

BTY, your post of 20,896 military dead and 418,000 is not backed up with a verifiable source. Where did you get those numbers? All data MUST have a verifiable source, no execeptions. --Woogie10w (talk) 02:17, 4 March 2008 (UTC)
What needs to be done is to get some data on the Communist guerrilla Army under Kim Il Sung. They were Korean soldiers and deserve mention.
I am 58 and have known Koreans most of my life, a good friend of my who is a few years older than myself remembers, as a child in 1945, people beating to death tratiors who worked for the Japanese. We can't consider them Korean casualties, they were Japanese puppets.--Woogie10w (talk) 02:29, 4 March 2008 (UTC)


This link has a lot of interesting information. Japanese Collaborators, Please Stand Up[1]It is misleading and incorrect to include the Koreans in the Japanese Army as Korean Casualties. They belong with the flag and uniform they fought for, not with Korea. --Woogie10w (talk) 13:05, 4 March 2008 (UTC)

To classify military deaths by ethnic idenity is not practical. The US had 2,653 deaths of foriegn nationals in its Army, they are American deaths. Think about it those guys were Japanese soldiers, not Koreans. Regards --Woogie10w (talk) 21:46, 4 March 2008 (UTC)

Your point was well made, Dower did not count forced labor deaths in Manchuria, but Rommel does include them in his figure. Can you read Korean? If so we need a scholary Korean source with data on WW2 losses. I took three semesters of Korean at the Korea Society here in NY. I really need to make an effort to improve my Korean. Regards --Woogie10w (talk) 01:45, 5 March 2008 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Mb_0334.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Mb_0334.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use. Suggestions on how to do so can be found here.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Do you want to opt out of receiving this notice? Rettetast (talk) 22:59, 19 April 2008 (UTC)

# {{User|YOURUSERNAME}}

to the membership list. You may also like to place {{User Russian Project}} on your userpage, as this will also place you in Category:WikiProject Russia members.

There is also an active proposal on the creation of a single WP:RUSSIA project. The proposal can be viewed at Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Russia#Proposal_for_overhaul_and_creation_of_a_single_WP:RUSSIA_project, and your comments and suggestions are welcomed and encouraged at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Russia/Proposal.

We all look forward to your continued support of WP:RUSSIA and any comments you may have on the proposal. --Russavia Dialogue Stalk me 04:38, 2 October 2008 (UTC)

Monitor. WikiProject Poland Newsletter: Issue 1 (April 2011)[edit]

WikiProject Poland Newsletter • April 2011
For our freedom and yours

Welcome to our first issue of WikiProject Poland newsletter, the Monitor (named after the first Polish newspaper).

Our Project has been operational since 1 June, 2005, and also serves as the Poland-related Wikipedia notice board. I highly recommend watchlisting the Wikipedia:WikiProject Poland page, so you can be aware of the ongoing discussions. We hope you will join us in them, if you haven't done so already! Unlike many other WikiProjects, we are quite active; in this year alone about 40 threads have been started on our discussion page, and we do a pretty good job at answering all issues raised.

In addition to a lively encyclopedic, Poland-related, English-language discussion forum, we have numerous useful tools that can be of use to you - and that you could help us maintain and develop:

This is not all; on our page you can find a list of useful templates (including userboxes), awards and other tools!

With all that said, how about you join our discussions at WT:POLAND? Surely, there must be something you could help others with, or perhaps you are in need of assistance yourself?

WikiProject Poland Newsletter • January 2014 • Issue II[edit]

WikiProject Poland Newsletter • January 2014 • Issue II
For our freedom and yours

Welcome to the second issue of WikiProject Poland newsletter, the Monitor (named after the first Polish newspaper).

Our Project has been operational since 1 June, 2005, and also serves as the Poland-related Wikipedia notice board. I highly recommend watchlisting the Wikipedia:WikiProject Poland page, so you can be aware of the ongoing discussions. We hope you will join us in them, if you haven't done so already! Unlike many other WikiProjects, we are quite active; we get close to a hundred discussion threads each year and we do a pretty good job at answering all issues raised. Last year we were featured in the Signpost, and our interviewer was amazed at our activity. In the end, however, even as active as we are, we are just a tiny group - you can easily become one of our core members!

In addition to a lively encyclopedic, Poland-related, English-language discussion forum, we have numerous useful tools that can be of use to you - and that you could help us maintain and develop:

  • we have an active assessment department. As of now, our project has tagged almost 83,000 pages as Poland-related - that's an improvement of over 3,000 new pages since the last newsletter. Out of which 30 still need a quality assessment, and 2,000, importance assessment. We have done a lot to clear the backlog here (3 years ago those numbers were 1,500 and 20,000, respectively). Can you help assess a few pages?
    • assessing articles is as easy as filling in the class= and importance= parameters on the talk page in the {{WPPOLAND|class=|importance=}} template. See here for a how-to guide.
  • once an article has an assessment template, it will appear in our article alerts and news feed, which provides information on which Poland-related articles are considered for deletion, move, or are undergoing a Good or Featured review. Watchlisting that feed, in addition to watchlisting our project's main page, is a good way to make sure you stay up to date on most Poland-related discussions.
  • you can also see detailed deletion discussions at Wikipedia:WikiProject Deletion sorting/Poland (which is a good place to watchlist if you just want to stay up to date on possible deletions of Poland-related content)
  • we have also begun B-class quality reviews on our talk page, and if our activity increases, hopefully we will be able to institute our own A-class quality reviews. As of now, we have about 500 C-class articles in need of a B-class review. If you'd like to help with them, instructions for doing B-class reviews are to be found in point 10 of our assessment FAQ. In addition to this automated list, you are also encouraged to help review articles from our B-class reviews requested list found here.
  • also, those articles will be included in our cleanup listing, which allows us to see which top-importance articles are in need for attention, and so on. We have tens of thousands articles in need of cleanup there, so if you ever need something to do, just look at this gigantic list. (I am currently reviewing the articles tagged with notability, either proving them notable or nominating for deletion; there are still several dozens left if you want to help!).
  • did you know that newly created Poland-related articles are listed here. They need to be reviewed, often cleaned-up, occasionally nominated for deletion, and their creators may need to be welcomed and invited to our project if they show promise as new authors of Poland-related content.
  • we are maintaining a Portal:Poland
  • automated Wikipedia:WikiProject Poland/Popular pages lists the most popular Poland-related pages from the previous month(s)
  • Breaking news: we are looking for a Wikipedian in Residence for the New York City area. See Wikipedia:GLAM/Józef Piłsudski Institute of America for details.

This is not all; on our page you can find a list of useful templates (including userboxes), awards and other tools!


With all that said, how about you join our discussions at WT:POLAND? Surely, there must be something you could help others with, or perhaps you are in need of assistance yourself?

It took me three years to finish this issue. Feel free to help out getting the next one before 2017 by being more active in WikiProject management :)
