Just a reply to the stuff on my talk page:
1. Fine I relent on the airports but I condensed the information. No need to describe the airports in detail in the country article. Do that in the city articles.
I hope this cleared the air a little and I certainly do not wish to have any animosity with you. Cheers. Superdog 02:34, 28 May 2008 (EDT)
To help get you started contributing, we've created a tips for new contributors page, full of helpful links about policies and guidelines and style, as well as some important information on copyleft and basic stuff like how to edit a page. If you need help, check out Wikitravel:Help, or post a message in the travellers' pub.
Thanks for your work on South Korea, but please don't make deep links to http://english.visitkorea.or.kr (or any other site, for that matter). Eg. Insadong is supposed to be covered in our very own Seoul article, not other travel guides. Jpatokal 01:38, 4 June 2008 (EDT)
Wikitravel's policy is that we generally accept only primary external links. This means that links to the official homepages of tourist attractions, museums, district offices, airports, ferry terminals etc are welcome. However, links to other travel guides are generally not welcome. This means that you can link to eg. the website of the Port of Incheon (a primary link), but you should not link to the KNTO page about the Port of Incheon (a secondary link). In all cases, though, the most important information (eg. phone number, how to get there, prices) should be copied to Wikitravel itself. Jpatokal 05:48, 10 June 2008 (EDT)
Please use the standard Revised Romanization for any Korean phrases for consistency. There's a handy conversion tool at , just punch in the hangeul and it will give you the correct transliteration. Jpatokal 04:11, 12 June 2008 (EDT)
I really don't want to bring Wikipedia's edit wars here, and that's why I don't want a lengthy history section for Dokdo. Please summarize your concerns on Talk:Dokdo if you object with what I've written. Jpatokal 08:05, 11 September 2008 (EDT)
Map of Korea
Image:사본 -kor map03.jpg is a nice-looking map, but do you really have permission from the KTO to license it under Creative Commons? It will be deleted if you don't. Jpatokal 03:46, 10 October 2008 (EDT)
Hi Paula... I noticed that you reverted my edit to Ulleungdo. Was there any specific reason for this? Has the tourist ferry service been suspended? If so, could you type that into the summary box as a reason for your edit... If you do that, I'll no longer revert this specific edit... Much appreciated... Cheers...

Temples in Korea
Re: North Gyeongsang and a few others, temples like Buseoksa should not get their own articles, unless they're so huge and remote that they don't make sense in a city (eg. Guinsa). Please place them in the nearest city, like Yeongju in the case of Buseoksa, instead. Jpatokal 12:34, 11 November 2008 (EST)
Incheon Airport is on Yeongjong Island, so the airport is best covered there. The Seoul article should discuss how to get from ICN to Seoul, and the Incheon article should discuss how to get from ICN to Incheon city. Jpatokal 02:56, 15 December 2008 (EST)
Your contributions of late have been composed of little other than edit warring. Edit wars are undesirable -- please leave the article alone until a suitable compromise or discussion can be pursued. There is no harm in allowing discussion to precede minor notions of correctness. -- Colin 01:17, 6 January 2009 (EST)
I would like to address some ongoing issues with a particular bureaucrat and one of his admins. The general idea is he follows me around and basically harasses me whenever I make an edit to one of his pages. He seems to need the last word on all the edits. I'm finding this a little perplexing since I thought it was understood that edits can be made and that factual information matter. Frankly, I think it's getting a little personal and the boundaries of fairness and good sense are being breached. I've written the details in a letter I have sent to your Wiki email since I thought it would be too much for this talk page. I am a travel writer and enjoyed working on this site very much initially. However it's become a demoralizing and draining experience lately. It's unfortunate and would hope to return to my original opinion on the task. ThanxPaula 20:02, 22 January 2009 (EST)
Ha, Ha. You'd be laughing too if you saw my letter to Evan. What you have written is exactly what I had assumed and predicted the problems are with Wikitravel. You have confirmed to me that the "Old Boys Club" mentality is as pervasive as I feared it was. At least you freely admit the obvious bias that exists within the admins and which you demonstrate yourself. So, you will forgive me if I don't consider your criticism of what you perceive to be my "overly aggressive" ways as credible. Paula 00:42, 5 February 2009 (EST)
It is not a "cry...for backup" as you put it that I am looking for, it is the observance to the original ideals, objectivity, fairness and the freedom to make legitamite edits, of the site that I was demanding. And when I did not receive that from the people I thought most committed to those principles I was taken aback and responded concurrently.Paula 00:42, 5 February 2009 (EST)
By the way, I was not the one who had asked for the page to be blocked. I am always willing to compromise and have in the past. And if Evan is not active why has he not been removed on the active list?Paula 00:42, 5 February 2009 (EST)
No.1: If the traveller comes first shouldn't we be giving them accurate information? Does that not count as being necessary? It's not about, "my pony is prettier than your pony." It's about do these things exist or not. Is this information necessary or not? I don't know about you. I REALLY don't know about you but that's what I understand as the "traveller coming first" to mean. If the facts are not important and you refuse to see them and what you're really interested in is creating your own terms for places and inventing things because it's easier or follows some arbitrary guideline beknownst only to you and your band of bureacrats then PLEASE, PLEASE tell me now. I will be happy to let you have your way so you can play with yourselves. But if you genuinely are interested in accepting accurate information that is helpful to anyone visiting these places then believe you me, my "aggression" will subside.
No.2: Have you actually seen my edits? You would be hard pressed to see a simpler structure in some of them. I would be hurt. Every Korean local I have explained this bizarre argument I'm having with y'all would be hurt. And most importantly, anyone trying to get to the beaches and markets on Yongyu Island would be hurt. The official Incheon tourist map lists it as an island , Wikipedia describes the map as Yeongjong Island and Yongyu Island , the description on the link YOU listed also describes it as Yeongjong and Yongyu Island , the airport PR Centre confirms that distinction as well. I mean WTF? Even information you and Jani have listed say exactly what I'm saying. I mean which part is difficult to understand? Every official body acknowledges this. There are 2 islands and the airport is on reclaimed land between them. That's it. Paula 00:42, 5 February 2009 (EST)
