  • Remove the skins table temporarily. Waiting on a bug fix and the update should be posted here
  • Guidelines for taking photos needs to be expanded on
  • For subway color usage as well as Korean colors for tables. Grey and white tables can look dull after a while.
  • Special youtube video account for our website
  • Videos or animated gifs showing conjugation in action for irregular verbs as well as the differences in V + 다가 vs V + 았 / 었 + 다가 (etc).
  • Make the getting started page more special looking.
  • Similar to the learning 한글 section, a step by step section for learning Korean.
  • Section that makes comparisons for grammar, for example when to use each future tense and 하다 vs 되다 verbs. What do we name it?
  • If we don't mind using outside content, we could include nice videos done by people like on relevant pages. For example, I think they have a video Hangeul lesson. Along with providing information, we can also organize the great stuff on the net. That would help make it so we don't have to create so much original content (at least in the beginning).
How about making our own youtube videos for completed vocabulary pages? This would have to be in the future after we get all the basics done. - Bluesoju 02:07, 16 April 2009 (UTC)
That could be very useful -Mstrum 01:31, 17 April 2009 (UTC)
Also similarly to how you use youtube videos on your site, how about some clips for slang and perhaps idioms. We can display the subtitle in Korean and English and show a short clip from a movie or show. For example at the beginning of Old Boy one of the cops says that "this guy must really want to eat 콩밥" and that could be added on the 콩밥 page. Perhaps we might want to create a separate youtube account so these little clips don't clutter your old account. -Bluesoju 00:12, 20 April 2009 (UTC)
  • Expand on the resources, figure out how to incorporate reviews
  • More userboxes, like "This user is a level 3 student at SNU/Yonsei/Sogang."

Grammar template

  • Add language translation to the button
  • Table for conjugation rule?
  • Colored tables ?
  • Cases for past tense, present tense, future tense if the cases are different

Getting the word out

To-do before campaigning

  • Complete guidelines, standards and help
  • Professional video introduction(?)


  • Send messages to K-bloggers
  • Find other language learning sites and post a message
  • Posting a flier at Language schools in Seoul
  • Emailing other Korean university programs and asking them to join.

Software or extensions

  • Anti bot and spam filter for registering.
  • Search suggest box needs to get bigger like wikipedia's. Our's currently stays the same.
  • Extension to include flash content (SWF files)


  • Set up forums (either vBulletin or phpBB would be fine)
    • Add link from Top (to the main page) and HelpTop (to a help section)

Learning Hangeul

I've used the talk page for the Learn hangeul section to propose a format so we can begin work on it soon.

Our Software

Hangeul Assistant

Text Message Program

A flash program that could be embedded and has a screen like a phone. The user can use standard or "sky" mode and practice text messaging in Korean. The result should look like as if it was being typed on a real phone. Bluesoju 04:42, 13 April 2009 (UTC) (my new name)


  • 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


  • A section on words that are considered feminine or masculine. For example it's mostly women who say 미워 to men. Also the interrogative form A/V + 니 sounds feminine where as men mostly use A/V + 냐 instead.
    • Good idea, maybe this could be one part of a new section like 'Spoken' or 'Conversation'
  • 사투리 section with each dialect.
    • Where should this go? Would it need to be another section? Maybe it could be part of the 'Spoken' or 'Conversation' section that has extra information about when you speak.
  • A list of important 한자 - 과, 대, 중, 소, 인, 출, 입, 불 etc
    • Maybe this should be another section, what do you think?
  • The search on here sucks, it can't even find the pattern A/V + (으)ㄹ지도 모르다 using the search term n(으)ㄹ지 모르다. Needs to be fixed or users to effectively find grammar patterns.

Logo and Background

Idea for a new logo
  • New logo, something more complex and unique.
  • Background ok for now?
