Korean films[edit]

Hi! I see that you have edited a lot of articles for Korean films. Do you speak Korean? If you do, I was wondering if you perhaps could help me with the article for Lee Chang-dong's Poetry by translating the plot section from the film's article on the Korean Wikipedia? I think the article has the potential to reach a fairly high class on the quality scale, but as the film only has been released in Korea I won't be able to do it on my own. If you can't or don't want to, I still want to thanks you for all the other improvements on articles related to Korean cinema! Smetanahue (talk) 07:43, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

I see you did it, thanks! Smetanahue (talk) 19:39, 6 February 2011 (UTC)
I feel a bit bad as I took forever to get around to watching it/writing about it. Thank you so much for saying "thanks"  :) Rickinasia (talk) 14:03, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

Minor edit flag[edit]

It seems that all your edits are being marked as "minor" and that doesn't always seem to be appropriate. Do you have that set as default in your setting? Kenilworth Terrace (talk) 18:15, 24 December 2010 (UTC)

To be honest I am not fully sure what constitutes a "minor edit" versus a "major edit". Please do tell me what the difference is. Rickinasia (talk) 08:34, 30 December 2010 (UTC)
At Help:Minor edit the summary is
  • Checking the minor edit box signifies that the current and previous versions differ only superficially (typographical corrections, etc.), in a way that no editor would be expected to regard as disputable.
  • Any edit that changes the meaning of an article is not a minor edit, even if the edit concerns a single word, and it is improper to mark such an edit as minor.
HTH. Kenilworth Terrace (talk) 17:28, 30 December 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for the clarification. I had the idea that "major" and "minor" was about the quantity of words as opposed to content. Thanks again :) Rickinasia (talk) 17:31, 30 December 2010 (UTC)

Notification: changes to "Mark my edits as minor by default" preference[edit]

Hello there. This is an automated message to tell you about the gradual phasing out of the preference entitled "Mark all edits minor by default", which you currently have (or very recently had) enabled.

On 13 March 2011, this preference was hidden from the user preferences screen as part of efforts to prevent its accidental misuse (consensus discussion). This had the effect of locking users in to their existing preference, which, in your case, was true. To complete the process, your preference will automatically be changed to false in the next few days. This does not require any intervention on your part and you will still be able to manually mark your edits as being 'minor'. The only thing that's changed is that you will no longer have them marked as minor by default.

For established users such as yourself there is a workaround available involving custom JavaScript. If you are familiar with the contents of WP:MINOR, and believe that it is still beneficial to the encyclopedia to have all your edits marked as such by default, then this discussion will give you the details you need to continue with this functionality indefinitely. If you have any problems, feel free to drop me a note.

Thank you for your understanding and happy editing :) Editing on behalf of User:Jarry1250, LivingBot (talk) 18:57, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

Romanization[edit]

Hi Rick! Is "Samgugji: Yong-ui Buhwal" the Revised Romanization of "삼국지: 용의 부활"? What is the McCune Reischauer? Thanks WhisperToMe (talk) 00:43, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

Hello Whisper~ I added the McCune Reischauer (and I usually use this site to get it). I also changed the Revised Romanization slightly. Thanks for the heads up :) ₪RicknAsia₪ 04:41, 15 January 2012 (UTC)
You are welcome! Until I found the sources and edited it, the film article didn't say it was partially a Korean production, hence why it didn't have the Korean. WhisperToMe (talk) 05:09, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

Infobox Korean Film[edit]

Hi Rickinasia,

Thanks for your invitation. I have given my 2 cents worth there; hope it will be useful... If there is anything else I can do for you in future, feel free to leave a message on my talk page. On a side note, have you considered creating the List of South Korean films of 2012? From my knowledge, there are quite a lot of Korean films there were released this year, so it is a pity that there is no comprehensive listing of these yet. I would be glad to help out with this list if you want. Happy editing!--Lionratz (talk) 10:29, 13 October 2012 (UTC)

More romanization questions[edit]

Hello, Rick!

How would you romanize "현대자동차 빌딩" (File:HyundaiMotorTowerChaoyang.JPG)? Also how do you romanize the Korean in File:Border stone china-corea.jpg? What is the Korean text in the picture? Thanks, WhisperToMe (talk) 20:17, 22 October 2012 (UTC)

I added the information to the first image but I'll write it here as well. The first image would be RR:HyeondaeJadongcha Bilding, MR:HyŏndaeChatongch'a Pilding. And the second image is unique. The words on the rock are in Korean and Chinese (Korean: 중국도문변경, RR:Jungguk domunbyeungyeong, MR:Chungguk tomunpyŏn’gyŏng) but the words typed under the image are longer. It says 位于吉林省的中朝边境界碑 but the image itself only has 中朝边境界碑, so I'm not sure the other words. I also am unsure which template so use, so I didn't write the romanizations there, only here. Cheers~ ₪RicknAsia₪ 10:21, 24 October 2012 (UTC)

Jongno 5(o)-ga Station[edit]

Hi. I think the discussion is necessary about moving to Jongno 3(sam)-ga Station, Jongno 5(o)-ga Station, etc. Sawol (talk) 14:39, 30 November 2012 (UTC)

That's fair. I noticed you were undoing my edits so I stopped. Where should discussion be? On each page's talk page? ₪RicknAsia₪ 14:40, 30 November 2012 (UTC)
I think that Wikipedia:Requested moves is proper. Thank. Sawol (talk) 14:45, 30 November 2012 (UTC)
I don't understand why I should request a move though. I am changing the English spelling to match that of the official metro system's maps Operator of Line 1-4 Operator of Line 5-8. Have there been edit wars over this before? ₪RicknAsia₪ 15:08, 30 November 2012 (UTC)
I think that Wikipedia:Requested moves is proper so that many users' opinions can congregate. I hope you understand where I'm coming from when I say this. I give you one question for this problem. Jamsil Station is officially "Jamsil(Songpa-gu Office) Station". Do you want to move Jamsil Station to the official name like "Jongno 3(sam)-ga Station"? Sawol (talk) 18:37, 30 November 2012 (UTC)
If it's proper than I would love to do it. I really don't want to break procedure or start edit wars. Good question. I didn't know Jamsil had two names. My goal for name changes is to change the English name to whatever the English subway maps say provided by the operators of the subway. So while I have no problem if someone changes "Jamsil Station" to "Jamsil(Songpa-gu Office) Station" since the sign at the station say it, I don't have a burning drive to change it unless the main maps change. While I should also say I've seen signs posted at several stations these days saying they are needing to update the huge maps on the walls. I think I should wait to see what kind of changes are made there, check the online maps also made by the operators, and accordingly follow through with name change request(s) like you mentioned. ₪RicknAsia₪ 03:20, 1 December 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for your good intentions. I don't want to start edit wars, either. I think that it is nice to use common names as article titles WP:COMMONNAME. Sawol (talk) 12:56, 2 December 2012 (UTC)

Seoul Metropolitan Subway name[edit]

User:Frysun is trying to use an incorrect and unofficial term that has no consensus among the official subway operators, subway maps and general public. The most accurate term is "Seoul Metropolitan Subway" - Seoul Metro's English map says "Metro lines in Seoul Metropolitan Area". There are no two system as he claims - It is one unified system. Could you put the name back to "Seoul Metropolitan Subway" as it has always been? There is also a discussion going on at "List of metro systems" article about this you can join. Thank you. Camins (talk) 15:13, 2 March 2013 (UTC)

I tried to change the name of the page and was unable to. I am trying to get an admin to force the name back as I'm unable to do so. See this page [1]. I'll join the discussions :) ₪RicknAsia₪ 15:32, 2 March 2013 (UTC)
It seems the admin for some reason removed our request to move the page back. Camins (talk) 06:48, 3 March 2013 (UTC)

User:Frysun has changed the title of the Seoul Metropolitan Subway article once again to call it a "railway", ignoring previous consensus and this should be reverted back. We're in the process of gaining consensus again (for which it already existed) and it would be helpful if you can join the discussion. Camins (talk) 18:53, 18 March 2013 (UTC)

Hanja[edit]

Hi Rickinasia,

Just curious about how you go about finding the Hanja for corresponding Hangeul?

Thanks in advance! Rystheguy (talk) 00:10, 7 March 2013 (UTC)

Hello Rystheguy,
The easiest way is also the one that took me the longest to find; the language list on the left side of Wikipedia pages. If a Korean page exists for it they frequently post the Hanja in the intro to their article.
Another option is to check a dictionary either on my phone or pocket electronic one. But since I am on the computer and I want a free option, I use Naver's dictionary; [2]. Type in the Korean (or English) word, search, and scroll down to the English definition as there are sometimes several definitions. The Hangul and Hanja are next to it. A great example is 전차; it can mean "tank" and also "tram/streetcar" among other definations and the hanja will be different.
For MR romanizations and sometimes hanja I use this site [3] but since there is no English translation it's not easy to pull the correct hanja.
Thanks for asking and for all your editing work. Please let me know if you have any other questions. Take care~ ₪RicknAsia₪ 01:17, 7 March 2013 (UTC)

Great, thanks! And thank you for adding the hanja to the Jun Won-tchack article! Rystheguy (talk) 05:26, 7 March 2013 (UTC)

Hangul Linktext[edit]

Hi Rickinasia,

I appreciate the feedback you left on my userpage. Thanks to you too for all of your edits, you sure have been busy!

I'm sorry for deleting some of the linktext templates for the hangul syllables. I'm fairly new to Wikipedia, so I may not completely understand the function of linktext.

I was thinking that the reason for linking to the Wictionary was to show the meaning of individual characters or words. For example, linking hanja is useful because every individual character has meaning. As for Hangul, each individual syllable doesn't necessarily have meaning, or if it does, it quite often doesn't relate to the meaning of the word it's a part of. Similar to having the word "Canada" and linking to "Can", "a" or "da". An example I found was the film Secret. The hangul for this film's title is 시크릿, but that's just a transliteration of the English word "Secret" and each individual syllable (시, 크, 릿) has no meaning on its own.

I just want to make it clear that I'm not saying at all that you're wrong. I'm just saying that I may not quite understand the purpose for linktext. If I'm wrong in my assumptions, please let me know by clarifying how linktext should be used.

Thank you!

Film templates[edit]

As you are probably aware we have undertaken a merge on the Film templates. There were 15 parameters in total, with 13 of them relating to titles. You most likely know all those went into {{Film name}}, and should still display exactly the same as they did on the articles.

Korean admissions have been integrated into "Box office", and will show up when there is no worldwide figure to supersede it: I chose to do it that way to make it consistent with American articles that use the US gross when the worldwide figure is not available. In the future, just add the admissions to the box office field; it is not metric specific so can accommodate a gross figure or admissions, since it is all box office.

The only parameter to my knowledge that has been dropped is "art director" from the Japanese template, since the Film project has a consensus to not add it to the infobox. I may have overlooked something since there were a lot of parameters, but if I have missed anything, or something is not working right feel free to leave me a message. Betty Logan (talk) 07:33, 24 April 2013 (UTC)

Betty, thank you for doing the coding for the merge and checking the updates like a hawk. It takes a lot of time and I appreciate your work. I haven't had a chance to look over the merge results closely so I haven't replied on the main forum. Since the old templates are being retired, what should be done with all the pages using those templates? Will a bot automatically convert them or should editors go over them and change them manually?
"In the future, just add the admissions to the box office field; it is not metric specific so can accommodate a gross figure or admissions, since it is all box office."
True. I will probably do that for the future. Thanks. ₪RicknAsia₪ 01:03, 25 April 2013 (UTC)

Japanese titles[edit]

Hi Rick, there is an editor asking a question about the formatting of the Japanese titles at Template talk:Film name. It's not really my area and you seem to be more informed about this than me, so I was wondering if you could post a response for him. Betty Logan (talk) 23:54, 27 April 2013 (UTC)

I'll take a look. Thanks. ₪RicknAsia₪ 02:08, 28 April 2013 (UTC)

May 2013[edit]

Thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. I noticed your recent edit to Asiana Airlines does not have an edit summary. Please provide one before saving your changes to an article, as the summaries are quite helpful to people browsing an article's history. Thanks! JetBlast (talk) 06:54, 1 May 2013 (UTC)

I usually try to but in the desire to finish I skipped, especially as it was a minor edit. I'll try and do more summaries though. Cheers~ ₪RicknAsia₪ 01:33, 2 May 2013 (UTC)

Spamalot[edit]

Information icon Hello, I'm Dl2000. I noticed that you made a change to an article, Spamalot, but you didn't provide a reliable source. It's been removed for now, but if you'd like to include a citation and re-add it, please do so! If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you. Dl2000 (talk) 18:08, 26 May 2013 (UTC)

I've started a discussion here about Korean given names. I'm interested in your opinion! Take care, Rystheguy (talk) 06:50, 29 May 2013 (UTC)

Seoul Subway on List of metro systems[edit]

There are attempts from clearly Chinese users to split the Seoul Subway, which I have argued is against consensus to keep it as one system, but the discussion on List of metro systems is being outnumbered by unfair views placed upon from these users. It would be very helpful if you could join the discussion there. Thank you. Massyparcer (talk) 16:20, 9 January 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up. Please let me know if there is a vote or I should jump in again as I really don't follow Wikipedia as closely as I have before. ₪RicknAsia₪ 12:35, 12 January 2014 (UTC)
I know you're busy but if you have the time, I would appreciate your input on List of metro systems talk page under the section of "Metro system with the largest number of stations", where editors are essentially discussing about Seoul. Massyparcer (talk) 16:13, 20 February 2014 (UTC)

An RfC that you may be interested in...[edit]

As one of the previous contributors to {{Infobox film}} or as one of the commenters on it's talk page, I would like to inform you that there has been a RfC started on the talk page as to implementation of previously deprecated parameters. Your comments and thoughts on the matter would be welcomed. Happy editing!

Seoul Subway & List of metro systems, Part Deux[edit]

Rick, thanks for your reply at the List of metro systems Talk page. I have a question for you: what would you consider to be the total route length, and the total number of stations, for the following - Korail's "metro" lines: Bundang Line, Suin Line, plus Ilsan Line (Korail part of Line 3) & Gwacheon Line + Ansan Line (Korail parts of Line 4)? (Adjusting for the fact that the Suin Line and the Ansan line apparently share some of the same route/tracks...) Also, what reference or references would tend to cite for the stats for these lines? Thanks in advance. --IJBall (talk) 17:55, 24 March 2014 (UTC)

I'm doubtful that the official websites from each line has total length written. It would have to be 3rd party sources, such as the FRDB (frdb.wo.to) checking their completed construction page, search for the last opened section for each line and it will probably give you the total line length as well. Next option is to check the Korean language Wiki pages. Like in the UK, there are clubs/groups for metro and as such their Wiki pages should be updates/have good links. As for the overlap (as Suin and Line 4 share some rail), take total route length and minus the distance from station X to station Y using the graphs on each line's page. It's not perfect but I think that is the closest possible. ₪RicknAsia₪ 23:46, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

Thank You for your replay. I agree that the Wikipedia page for Seoul rail networks should be together. However this seems to be causing a lot of confusion. Perhaps a clause can be inserted in the intro that Seoul metro subway is actually a metropolitan rail system made up of rapid transit, light metro, and commuter rail lines. Additional changes like you said system # km, (subway #km, LRT #km, etc) and the tables formatted as such like a Transit Type column or a group of tables by type. What do you think? Terramorphous (talk) 20:13, 25 March 2014 (UTC)

I absolutely agree with all of these suggestions, esp. a Transit 'Type' column - I put one of those columns in when I put in a 'Lines' table for the Metro Rail (Los Angeles County) system article, for example. --IJBall (talk) 20:53, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
I'm cool with both comments. It shows the whole network as one system (important) and gives the 'type' of rail for those that would find it of interest. If you think there would be debate with what 'type' it is I suggest you but the debate on the talk page of each line or at least make a note that it is under discussion and reference so people can easily find where the debate is. Best~ ₪RicknAsia₪ 23:46, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

Template:S-line[edit]

Information icon Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you tried to give Template:S-line/SMS left/Sinbundang Line a different title by copying its content and pasting either the same content, or an edited version of it, into Template:S-line/SMS left/Shinbundang Line. This is known as a "cut-and-paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history, which is legally required for attribution. Instead, the software used by Wikipedia has a feature that allows pages to be moved to a new title together with their edit history.

In most cases, once your account is four days old and has ten edits, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page (the tab may be hidden in a dropdown menu for you). This both preserves the page history intact and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. If you cannot perform a particular page move yourself this way (e.g. because a page already exists at the target title), please follow the instructions at requested moves to have it moved by someone else. Also, if there are any other pages that you moved by copying and pasting, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Cut-and-paste-move repair holding pen. Thank you. Sawol (talk) 02:19, 19 January 2015 (UTC)

Sorry about that and thanks for the heads up. I'll do the move command in the future and if I remember any other cut-paste edits I'll forward them to the location you mentioned. Thanks. ₪RicknAsia₪ 02:27, 19 January 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up. That account is not mine and I guess I feel honored that I have done so many edits that someone made an account with name similar to mine in order for their edits to slip through. ₪RicknAsia₪ 08:04, 28 November 2017 (UTC)
