High Importance Article - GA Nominated[edit]

A high importance B class article within the WikiProject Korea group, Exo, has been nominated for GA status, so if anyone can assist in reviewing it by clicking "start review" here, that would be helpful. Thank you. NicklausAU (talk) 07:48, 6 June 2018 (UTC)

Again requesting anyone involved in WikiProject Korea to review this article. It has been nominated for almost 2 weeks without any reviews. This article has the highest page views of any article within the WikiProject Korea group. NicklausAU (talk) 03:20, 10 June 2018 (UTC)
Once again, requesting anyone involved in the WikiProject Korea to review this article. It's been nominated for over a month now. NicklausAU (talk) 21:52, 2 July 2018 (UTC)
Just checking in again, it's now been over 2 months since I nominated Exo (band) (now the 2nd most viewed article on Wikipedia) for Good Article status without any reviews. I am incredibly active, so a review process should hopefully be pretty quick and painless. I would very much appreciate any time anyone can spare in reviewing this article. You can find instructions on how to conduct a Good Article review here. You can find links to begin a Good Article review for Exo (band) on the talk page and on the list of nominations. NicklausAU 03:02, 9 August 2018 (UTC)
Requesting again, for anyone with time available for a GA review to consider reviewing Exo (band). The article has now been nominated for over 3 months. Any user, with or without experience, can review an article. There are instructions available here. You can find links to begin a Good Article review for Exo (band) on the talk page and on the list of nominations. NicklausAU 04:24, 3 September 2018 (UTC)
It's nice you post the updates here, but GAs have backlog and I guess we don't have any K-pop enthusiast here (as surprising as it may be). Myself, I am not really interested in this topic, I am afraid (and TBH, I find reliability of music sources and notability issues to be so complex I stay away from those topic; through I am sure EXO is notable). For what it's worth, the article's references and structure look fine, but I just can't find much will to read the contents. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 08:33, 3 September 2018 (UTC)
I post here because there is a general backlog of GA nominees, but not specifically for articles within this WikiProject. Also, with the added difficulty of many of the sources being in Korean, it is a bit unlikely that someone outside this Wikiproject would want to review it. And yeah it's a big article too, so many people have that reaction. I'll just give it time. NicklausAU 02:36, 4 September 2018 (UTC)

Article on notable Korean figure declined.[edit]

I have recently been declined because according to the reviewer, my article "does not show that the subject qualifies for a Wikipedia article—that is, they do not show significant coverage (not just passing mentions) about the subject in published, reliable, secondary sources that are independent of the subject." However, my sources are coming directly from Korea's Ministry of Patriot's and Veteran's Affairs and reliable news periodicals (Sinhan Minbo/New Korea). One issue for readers may be that the older news periodicals uses old Korean which can be difficult to read by even Koreans. I feel that the reviewer was unable to carefully review my sources and thus declined it. Here is the link to my draft. I am looking forward to everyone's feedback. Mlee965 (talk) 17:05, 7 August 2018 (UTC)

I'm not familiar with the Sinhan Minbo, but according to the USC database, the newspaper was published by the Korean National Association, which Song seems to have been affiliated with — I assume that was the reviewer's objection. The source from the Ministry of Patriot's and Veteran's Affairs is good though. Perhaps you can also find an obituary or see what sources other articles related to the Korean independence movement cite? Good luck! Lenoresm (talk) 17:59, 7 August 2018 (UTC)
@Mlee965: This does look like something from my alley (history, notability). Unfortunately, I have to say I share the reviewers concerns. I cannot find a single English-language source about him (and my Korean is not good enough to look for other Korean sources). He doesn't appear to be a subject to any extensive coverage or analysis outside passing mentions and an obituary. Also, his biography does not suggest anything, well, raising to the point of being encyclopedic (general failure of WP:NBIO). Final red flag is no Korean Wikipedia article (generally Korean Wikipedia has lower notability standards than English, so if even it doesn't write about a Korean subject, it is not boding well). To prevent your article from being deleted (as happens to old drafts), you can copy it to your userspace. I am sorry to say, but Wikipedia may not be the right outlet to host his biography. I'd encourage you to consider contributing to Korean-American history topics that do pass WP:N guideline. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 08:41, 3 September 2018 (UTC)

Advice on appropriate lang tags for Korean[edit]

If you have experience with {{lang}} tags and the like, could you look in at Wikipedia talk:Typo Team/moss Lang tags - where to get advice/approval, where I'm uncertain how to handle (code) three different versions of the same text: as transliterated hangul, in hangul, and in hanja.

Help needed from someone who understands Korean[edit]

At Talk:TrueCrypt#Druking a new editor is making claims that are

  • [A] extremely implausible from a technical standpoint, and
  • [B] according to Google Translate, do not appear appear to be contained in the sources he cited.

But we all know that Google Translate often misses important things, so I need someone who understands Korean to read the sources and post an opinion as to whether the claims are found in the sources. --Guy Macon (talk) 06:25, 31 August 2018 (UTC)

Where is the guideline for romanization located? In ictu oculi (talk) 10:30, 1 October 2018 (UTC)

  • In a better world, the divided families would have been reunited. But for the moment, we have to live with the fact that there are two legitimate authorities about the romanization of the Korean language. Namely the North Korean Government, and the South Korean Government. Everything else is only void agitation of people from the past, that are so proud of their own methods to decide from abroad on such matters... and so proud to slow down the standardization that would be required to facilitate automatized translations. Don't be so surprised that most of the people prefer to keep it simple. Pldx1 (talk) 13:49, 1 October 2018 (UTC)

Daegu article discussion[edit]

There's a discussion about whether or not some changes she be reverted or not over here at its talk page. I'd appreciate it if anybody came over to give their opinions, because I'm still kinda new at editing Wikipedia so I'd love your guys' assistance! Thank you so much for your time.

Kim Jong Yang new interim president of Interpol[edit]

There is very little information about him in English online media but given he got such a high position I guess he must have had important positions in his home country before. Could anyone contribute relevant sources, please? Crotopaxi (talk) 14:55, 10 October 2018 (UTC)

RfC on election/referendum naming format[edit]

An RfC on moving the year from the end to the start of article titles (e.g. South African general election, 2019 to 2019 South African general election) has been reopened for further comment, including on whether a bot could be used move the articles if it closed in favour of the change: Wikipedia talk:Naming conventions (government and legislation)#Proposed change to election/referendum naming format.

Featured quality source review RFC[edit]

Editors in this WikiProject may be interested in the featured quality source review RFC that has been ongoing. It would change the featured article candidate process (FAC) so that source reviews would need to occur prior to any other reviews for FAC. Your comments are appreciated. --IznoRepeat (talk) 21:46, 11 November 2018 (UTC)
