Popular pages report[edit]

We – Community Tech – are happy to announce that the Popular pages bot is back up-and-running (after a one year hiatus)! You're receiving this message because your WikiProject or task force is signed up to receive the popular pages report. Every month, Community Tech bot will post at Wikipedia:WikiProject Korea/Popular pages with a list of the most-viewed pages over the previous month that are within the scope of WikiProject Korea.

We've made some enhancements to the original report. Here's what's new:

  • The pageview data includes both desktop and mobile data.
  • The report will include a link to the pageviews tool for each article, to dig deeper into any surprises or anomalies.
  • The report will include the total pageviews for the entire project (including redirects).

We're grateful to Mr.Z-man for his original Mr.Z-bot, and we wish his bot a happy robot retirement. Just as before, we hope the popular pages reports will aid you in understanding the reach of WikiProject Korea, and what articles may be deserving of more attention. If you have any questions or concerns please contact us at m:User talk:Community Tech bot.

Warm regards, the Community Tech Team 17:15, 17 May 2017 (UTC)

Kim Seo-kyung & Kim Eun-sung[edit]

I've created a stub for those artists, I think they are notable. Please help expand - do they have article on ko wiki? What is their Korean name spelling? Do they have a homepage? I wasn't able to find much in the English-language news. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 02:02, 23 June 2017 (UTC)

They don't have a page/pages on the Korean wikipedia. Not sure if they have a website, though. --Christian140 (talk) 06:48, 23 June 2017 (UTC)

Feel free to expand my newest Korean DYK Embassy of Japan, Seoul[edit]

There are few things that could make it better: more photos, GPS coordinates, and address for the 1956-1976 building (seems the embassy moved in 1976, but I couldn't find out much about it). --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 03:17, 23 June 2017 (UTC)

Korean freeuse license[edit]

There is a request at c:Commons:Village pump/ Korean licenses for help with interpreting a license whose text is in Korean. Can anyone from here help with this? Verbcatcher (talk) 03:30, 6 July 2017 (UTC)

Minor point for possible correction[edit]

The article Unification Church in its info box says that the classification is Unification Church of the United States. I don't see how this is possible, that a larger entity is a sub-classification of a smaller entity. How about New religious movement for the category? (talk) 19:21, 7 July 2017 (UTC)


Is there someone to be able to create c:File:Korea_Expressway_No.255.svg? See also c:Category:Diagrams of South Korean Expressway Sign. --ㅂㄱㅇ (talk) (Bieup Giyeok Ieung) 08:09, 8 July 2017 (UTC)

Grammar information on Korean Verbs page is extremely inaccurate[edit]

Hello everyone! Sorry if I'm doing this wrong. This is my first time trying to make any significant changes to a Wikipedia page. Feel free to post (or message me) any tips about how I should be doing this.

Can some folks help clean up the Korean Verbs ( page? It's inaccurate to a fairly extreme level. Things as basic as how to create the past tense and make a verb negative (I fixed the negative thing). I don't know enough about linguistics yet to correct a lot of it, but I know enough to see how bad it is. I stumbled upon the page when I was trying to find an explanation of 더냐. When I got here I saw that the explanation couldn't possibly be correct (just from my own knowledge of Korean grammar, as 더 has to do with something you directly observe and 냐 is the question form for indirect reported speech) and then saw that huge portions of the page were inaccurate.
