There are now a few people who are working together on consistently improving the Korean content. So I thought that the time is ripe to try to both to stir the debate about what needs to be done, and then to formalise this into some goals. Then we can all work together to meet those goals.
And of course you can suggest what you think are the most important things that you need from Memrise in terms of infrastructure improvements etc.
So please do introduce yourselves and lets get it worked out!
RickCarlino has made much of the running on the Korean content to date (though several others have done excellent work as well), so is perhaps in the best position to say what needs to be done next. But let me make a couple of suggestions from the way that we have worked on other languages:
1 - we need to get a set of conventions that we agree on. There is a discussion thread on these, so if you have any ideas or objections, please add them in. We will try to get the finalised ASAP because all the other work is built on these and we need a solid foundation.
2 - work out what list we want to fill out. Eg would it be a good target to try to fill out Rick's list of 6,000 words? If so then we could break that into a bunch of smaller sets so that everyone could work on a smaller set and everyone would know the size of the task. Does that sound like a good idea? If not, what would be a good target?
3 - at the moment the Korean-specific volunteers that I have down on the list are: RickCarlino, hajinlee, JasonStewart2 and TL-izolight. Are there any more people who would like to be involved? - the more people who are helping, the faster the process will be, of course!
4 - We have an infrastructure to allow people to "merge" duplicate items. This is going to be important because the aim is to have one consolidated database of words. Then people can create wordlists by just uploading lists of Korean words, with no translations, and the uploader will populate the wordlist with all the items drawn from the database. We are setting up the permissions to allow "topic curators" to do this. What other tools would be most useful for you?
Looking forward to hearing your ideas!
