Korean copycat product listed at Redirects for discussion[edit]

Information.svg

An editor has asked for a discussion to address the redirect Korean copycat product. Since you had some involvement with the Korean copycat product redirect, you might want to participate in the redirect discussion if you have not already done so. Fram (talk) 08:49, 10 October 2014 (UTC)

I left a reply. The issue of it being racist to some people is an unfortunate one. I think what I find "dramatic" and "outstanding" about the Korean products is that the Japanese products "go out of their way" to make the packaging and such a unique part of the product experience, and they are based on ideas an artist came up with. The odds of the packaging looking the same, and the ingredients being the same with a few changes, by accident (so that at first glance one things the products are the same), seem astronomical. As opposed to how two milk or orange juice containers that have the same shape but the lettering, packaging, etc are just people selling something humans consume all over the world and there is no "gimmick" from another company that stands out to imitate. In the case of Korea, the Japanese "gimmick" is imitated and this is what stands out. Perhaps it is part of a broader phenomenon of "gimmick imitation": Topps products being copied by Fleer, Cracked and Crazy Magazine imitating Mad Magazine, etc. The subject apparently needs research done.--Radical Mallard (talk) 21:52, 10 October 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for September 26[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Vaporization, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Nuclear (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
