  • A meter for politeness or rudeness? For example cuss words can be rated on it's offensiveness.
    • Maybe a star rating template we can use other places? (like {{1star}} or {{rating|1}})
  • Info on who you can use it to, for example 구라(lie) should only be used to friends, it could be rude to a person you don't know. There are other slangs where it might be ok to use it to people you don't know.
  • Warning for mature content sections necessary? (sexual words and cuss words)
    • Yeah, we should probably have a sub-section of offensive and adult-natured content
