Write.pngGeneral Guidelines
One of the purposes of this wiki is to have all the content easy to understand. The articles should be dumbed down so the reader never has to scratch his head wondering. In most cases prior knowledge on a topic shouldn't be assumed and all content should be more focused on getting the reader to understand, rather than trying to sound like a linguistic expert.

Korean Romanization should be used as little as possible except in beginners sections only. Beginners should be encouraged to learn Hangeul first before moving onto grammar and other sections. Try at all costs to avoid Romanization in other sections unless absolutely necessary. If you must Romanize, use the Revised Romanization of Korean system. If you want to talk about special pronunciation cases, in most cases you should use the IPA instead of Korean Romanization since Korean Romanization can cause improper pronunciation.

  • Mp3s must be encoded at 11.025 kHz, 22.050 kHz, or 44.100 kHz otherwise they won't play properly. This is an error from 1 Pixel Out Audio player.
  • Please do not encode at a really high biterate unless absolutely necessary.
  • Please use the default parameters provided after clicking on the "mp3" button in the toolbar so the player is blue and red always, such as:

We try to use the same colors from the Korean flag and the Seoul subway lines. If you are going to style anything with colors, please choose from a shade from the table below. Templates have been created so you can memorize the line number instead of having to keep looking up the color code.
