We are in the process of developing a set of "conventions" for how content should be added. These are intended to be a framework which will allow all users to add items to the database in a way that ensures that they are tested effectively by Memrise, and ensures maximally efficient learning.
These conventions are still a work in progress, so please add your thoughts and comments and check out the sample set that Memrise user RickCarlino(http://www.memrise.com/user/rickcarlino) has made here(http://www.memrise.com/set/10000324/korean-master-list/), which is an example that follows these conventions.
When adding verbs or adjectives, add them in their "dictionary" form. Do not conjugate. EX: 가다,오다,짜다...
when adding countable nouns (nouns that require an article in English), make sure you attach the article to it's definition. For example if you were adding an item for the word "낚싯대", the definition should be written as "a fishing rod" and not simply "fishing rod". Other answers that should be accepted as correct (for example "fishing rod) should be added under "alternative English".
English translations of verbs should start with the word "to" and adjectives often start with "to be". EX: To go, To come, To be salty. The other acceptable answers for these words should also be added in the "alternative English" field.
Put Chinese characters for words of Chinese origin into the etymology section.
Try not to make English definitions excessively long as it creates formatting problems.
if you are describing measure words (ex: 개, 장, 송이, etc), start the definition with "A measure word for ___"
복습하다- to review, to prepare one's lesson (復習, academic term)
송이- a measure word for flowers
낙씻대- a fishing rod
짜다- to be salty
