Welcome Page

Welcome to the Citizendium! We hope you will contribute boldly and well. You'll probably want to know how to get started as an author. Just look at CZ:Getting Started for other helpful "startup" links, and CZ:Home for the top menu of community pages. Be sure to stay abreast of events via the Citizendium-L (broadcast) mailing list (do join!) and the blog. Please also join the workgroup mailing list(s) that concern your particular interests. You can test out editing in the sandbox if you'd like. If you need help to get going, the forums is one option. That's also where we discuss policy and proposals. You can ask any constable for help, too. Me, for instance! Just put a note on their "talk" page. Again, welcome and have fun! Larry Sanger 15:59, 21 October 2007 (CDT)

No derivitives

Hi Chunbum. Regarding Image:Japanese_arquebus.jpg, the no derivas part of the license means just that: no derivitives, including cropping. Your options are to 1) reupload the non-cropped version; 2) ask the author to remove that part of the license (most will). Stephen Ewen 21:06, 25 December 2007 (CST)


I just wanted to drop in and say keep up the good work! :-) Stephen Ewen 15:19, 27 December 2007 (CST)


Just being nosy really, but are you intending on doing History when you go to College in the States? Denis Cavanagh 16:03, 1 January 2008 (CST)


Hi Chunbum, i saw the added the text below to a few comments pages. I'm new to wiki syntax, could you please provide me url(s) that would help me understand that issue / point? Thanks
NOTE The editintro template atop the article page should be removed prior approval. Ewan Nisbet 04:05, 2 January 2008 (CST)

Your Sailing article edits

G'day. I wrote most of the Sailing article. I noticed you edited this article, including adding a diagram.

I deliberately kept the article simple so almost anyone can understand it. I had difficulty understanding your diagram, and I am a practising engineer. It is therefore likely that most readers will have difficulty understanding it. I suggest your diagram would be more useful to more people if you simplify it.

CZ International

Hi! I’m just letting people who have expressed an interest in CZ International know that there is now a proposal on the table.

Please discuss its feasibility at: CZ:Proposals/Internationalisation sandbox in the Discussion area.

Feel free to help develop the proposal, as well.

We'll also need "drivers".

If you've got no idea what I'm talking about, please refer to: CZ:Proposals/New and CZ:Proposals

Thanks for the comment and web link about azoles. That gives me a new area to mine for making drug articles! David E. Volk 09:08, 3 March 2008 (CST)

Thank you. (Chunbum Park 16:17, 3 March 2008 (CST))


I replied here to your concern over copying from the wikipedia. I take the GFDL seriously.

I suspect all the wikipedia's mirrors that say the full contribution history is available on the wikipedia are in breach of a strict interpretation of the GFDL. It would certainly be a problem if the original wikipedia version of the article gets deleted.

For this reason, when I port an article, I always port only up to the last version where I was the sole person to make intellectual contributions.

If you can port an article in under a minute my hat is off to you. George Swan 06:06, 9 April 2008 (CDT)

Goguryeo-Tang Wars

I've been doing a bit of research an came across some events related to Chinese/Korean history which I'm having some dificulty finding more information on. In particular I'm interesting in one battle of the Goguryeo-Tang Wars that took place in 645AD. The location given for the battle is Anshi which is generally assumed to be modern day Anshan in China. Are you able to find any Korean sources for this battle and confirm the location? Derek Harkness 07:57, 5 June 2008 (CDT)

Ichi, Ni, San, Shi, um.....

Hi Chunbum Park,

No, sadly I don't know much more Japanese than my own name (Mouth of the Mountain) and how to count to five...sorry I can't be of more help...--David Yamakuchi 16:55, 22 June 2008 (CDT)

That's fine. Thank you. (Chunbum Park 18:56, 22 June 2008 (CDT))


Congratulations!!! Well done, too. Keep them coming ;-) D. Matt Innis 14:48, 22 July 2008 (CDT)

Thank you. I just logged on, in a long while (so I'd think) (Chunbum Park 11:34, 24 July 2008 (CDT))

South Korea

Hello, you can read my answer there: User talk:Domergue Sumien#South Korea.--Domergue Sumien 15:23, 6 November 2008 (UTC)

My pleasure. It's a very good article. Ro Thorpe 14:50, 30 April 2009 (UTC)


Dear Chunbum (I hope I can call you that),

Wikipedia has been taken over by the theorizing, skeptical, critics of Homeopathy who ban anyone who has anything positive to say about Homeopathy.
Homeopathy is essentially a therapeutic method, which stimulates the natural healing processes of the body to heal that person of whatever problems/diseases, including the so called 'incurable' and 'surgical' problems.
I hope you can see my profile for more details.

U of Connecticut1

Congratulations Chunbum!!! I suppose that means that I better warm up that editor spot for you!! D. Matt Innis 04:50, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

Thank you, Mr. Innis! I hope to become an editor here (in 8 yrs?). I think my contributions at Citizendium were one of the things that got me in. (Chunbum Park 13:40, 27 January 2009 (UTC))
Well, I am proud of you and I know Richard will be, too. What will be your major? History of some sort? D. Matt Innis 14:57, 27 January 2009 (UTC)
How did you guess? History, but I'm thinking about journalism and perhaps dentistry as well. (Chunbum Park 22:23, 27 January 2009 (UTC))
Because you seem to have a talent and a desire. When you put those two together, you increase your chances of success. I can see journalism as well, but I would have to know whether you floss to decide about the dentist option! D. Matt Innis 01:12, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
My parents want me to become a dentist so I will have a stable source of income, etc. I don't think it would hurt being a dentist because as long as I have a job I can edit Citizendium without worry. : ) (Chunbum Park 13:47, 28 January 2009 (UTC))
I got into other colleges as well : ). I think it'd be silly for me to declare all the colleges that I've been accepted to, so I'll just keep mum for now. (Chunbum Park 22:56, 29 January 2009 (UTC))
I've decided to go to Pennsylvania State University! (Chunbum Park 21:48, 21 February 2009 (UTC))
Penn State!? Another good choice! Congratulations again :) D. Matt Innis 01:35, 22 February 2009 (UTC)
Thank you very much! I thought I crossed it out. Just after I made the decision (eh hem, important, teen...) my mommy told me to wait until I hear back from more colleges..., but definitely Penn State is 1 of my top choices! (Chunbum Park 02:38, 22 February 2009 (UTC))
Hehe! Hey, it's an important decision.. listen to your momma! Sounds like you have lots of good choices, but that does make it tougher :) D. Matt Innis 03:04, 22 February 2009 (UTC)

I cook Korean food, but I am not Korean

Before I do more on kimchi, perhaps putting in some of my recipes, please feel free to make suggestions. I wouldn't mind working on Korean cuisine. (looks around carefully) In the U.S., regions will fight virtual wars over their barbecue styles, but Korean is too little known here. Howard C. Berkowitz 19:20, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

That is absolutely fabulous, Mr. Berkowitz! Although I'm a Korean & I eat Kimchi, I don't know much about it!!! I know that garlic, red pepper, green onion, etc. go into it & shrimp Jutgal is another major ingredient (in most Korean kimchi's... although the Chinese food companies have figured out ways to make Kimchi without adding jutgal to reduce production costs & I'm sure the Japanese make "Kimuchi" differently.) Let me work on the article as well! P.S. I also know about "mool kimchi" or "water kimchi" which doesn't contain much red pepper and has a very subtle taste. I heard that Korean food used to not be spicy before red pepper entered the country around the 16th century. (Chunbum Park 21:23, 21 February 2009 (UTC))
I'll be very interested in water kimchi. When I started making it, I found the recipes called for things I would not have suspected. For example, it didn't taste right unless I used crystallized (sugared) ginger rather than fresh ginger. The recipes I had called for fresh oysters, but I wasn't sure I felt safe with that; a dried shrimp (I know the Chinese and Indonesian forms) makes good sense although I didn't use it.
The particular hot pepper is very important, I found, and I can't get it quite right now that I don't have a nearby Korean grocery. Thai ground pepper worked, but there was a particular ground hot pepper, more purple than red, which I bought in Korean stores and did something important to the taste. It wasn't as hot as the Thai or Chinese, although still too hot for many Americans.
One Korean friend would take a weekend and make tens of different varieties. I didn't try to make more than daikon vs. napa cabbage varieties, although I constantly played with the flavoring. Also, I improvised with things from other cultures — fresh ginger worked if I also added Indian raw date sugar (gur, jaggery).
Many Americans are convinced it's too hot to eat, but, while Korean food is spicy, I've never found it nearly as hot as some things from Southeast Asia or the Caribbean. Now, I scrambled two Habeneros into my brunch today, but when I made a noodle dish with one (distinctly hot) Jalapeno, they could barely eat it. I still take joy in the restaurants to which we'd bring friends, and the staff, who knew us, would ask "how spicy should we make it for the American?" It's hard to understand a culture if you don't start with its food. Howard C. Berkowitz 21:33, 21 February 2009 (UTC)


Hi Chunbum, did you vandalize your own user page? ;-) D. Matt Innis 05:44, 22 February 2009 (UTC)

Closed Form Solution

Following on from your question on my user page. A closed form solution has to do with how you express the equations. If you can express the equations in a set of well known function such as log, e, infinite series, etc then we describe the function as closed formed. Also, if we had a one was closed formed then we describe the set as closed formed. Hope that helps. Andrew Alexander Wallace 06:06, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

<<So, "expressing" inverse kinematics "in a set of well-known function" means that all the movements & part placements could be predicted by a simple set of equations? Merging/intersecting DOF's help simplify inverse kinematics?>>

Simple and simple! :D but yes and yes :) Andrew Alexander Wallace 06:25, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for the Welcome

And yes, I hope to help expand CZ's articles about Video Games, among other things. --Eric Clevinger 18:11, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

Proper credit to Korea for the ironclad

Would you look at Battle of Hampton Roads, verify I have correctly credited the Korean invention of the ironclad? You might want to link from the first Korean use to the first "modern" battle; few Westerners realize that the mid-19th century vessels, admittedly steam-powered, were not a radically new idea. Howard C. Berkowitz 01:43, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

dokdo in the newspaper

The New York Times has an article today: --Joe Quick 14:40, 21 March 2009 (UTC)

I already added it to the external links section :) Not sure if it appropriate. Chris Day 15:01, 21 March 2009 (UTC)
I think it is. It might even indicate that we should include a new section about the internationalization of the conflict (not that it wasn't already international :). You might even contact the professor quoted in the article or look through one of her books. --Joe Quick 21:47, 21 March 2009 (UTC)
Hello. You're right! I really need to take a look at her books. I did not think that the Dokdo issue would appear in a major newspaper now. Even in Korean & Japanese newspapers, I haven't seen & read much about it.
I'm not sure about adding a section about the view of the dispute outside of Japan & Corea. It would be like one of the "in popular culture" sections in a Wikipedia article about a historical subject. (Chunbum Park 23:18, 21 March 2009 (UTC))
I disagree about it being like a "popular culture" section. It is politically and socially significant that the conflict remains among the Korean diaspora if not as strongly among the Japanese diaspora. --Joe Quick 23:50, 21 March 2009 (UTC)
I saw this at breakfast this morning and meant to edit the article, but went on an errand first and then forgot about it until now. You *have* to put in a mention about the Korean dry cleaners in NYC using their garment bags to publicize "Dokdo Is Korean!" Very imaginative! Hayford Peirce 00:03, 22 March 2009 (UTC)
Okay, let's add it. Thank you for letting me know about the article. (Chunbum Park 17:36, 22 March 2009 (UTC))

Charter drafting candidacy

Hi Chunbum, You've been nominated by a fellow Citizendium member to be a candidate for election to the Citizendium charter drafting committee.

If you haven't been following the discussion in the forums, we're getting ready to establish a charter for Citizendium that outlines the project's goals, ideals, and basic structure. To get the process moving, we put together a plan for electing a group of Citizens to compose a draft of the charter, which will then be submitted for community review. You can find more about the plan here.

You've been nominated by another Citizen to be a candidate for election to that committee. The next step is up to you: you may either accept or decline the nomination by going here and following the instructions at the top of the page.

If you have any questions, just let me know. --Joe Quick 13:13, 30 September 2009 (UTC)

Ok. Thank you. (Chunbum Park 23:44, 30 September 2009 (UTC))


Pleasure. I'm watching... Ro Thorpe 18:19, 25 October 2009 (UTC)

Hi Chunbum

Thanks for your comment. Yes I did lots of Wikipedia articles. I'm trying to import some of them. I'm a U of R graduate myself ('79). Do they still call the library dome the nipple of knowledge?--Thomas Wright Sulcer 18:22, 17 February 2010 (UTC)

Speedy Delete Templates

Hi, Chunbum, when you request Speedy Deletes, please put your name into the Template request somewhere by typing the four tildes -- that way I *know* who is requesting the deletion. People like you and Daniel and Peter, for instance, I trust and delete as soon as I see your name. With unknown people, I won't. So, to help out the poor old hard-working Kops, please make sure that we always see your name. Many thanks! Hayford Peirce 02:35, 18 February 2010 (UTC)

Hello Mr. Peirce. My humble self shall doth as thy requesteth. (Chunbum Park 05:43, 18 February 2010 (UTC))


Tell me when you finish with your changes to Dokdo so that I can read through, copyedit and approve the draft version. Thanks. Martin Baldwin-Edwards 17:59, 14 September 2010 (UTC)

Your name

Something on the two versions of your name would be interesting. Presumably 'Chunbum Park' is a closer approximation in British English, i.e. no 'r' sound? Ro Thorpe 18:14, 23 December 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the interesting reply. I thought it would be a good idea if you could put something like that on your User page, as I am surely not the first to wonder about the two versions of the name. Having come across it several times before, I thought 'Park' was quite common as a Korean name, actually. Interesting to know that the 'r' was supplied by those rhotic Americans. Happy New Year!---Ro Thorpe 02:08, 27 December 2010 (UTC)

That bit about the 'jj' perhaps could do with some clarification... Ro Thorpe 01:45, 29 December 2010 (UTC)

I don't think 'jj', 'gg', 'bb', 'dd', and 'ss' really exist in English. Maybe you could guess them by applying some sort of a transitive property (of multiplication) approach to 'bb', which sounds similar to 'ph', but with lips sealed in its initial position, rather than the upper teeth resting on the lower lips, or to 'dd,' which sounds similar 'th' (not as in "that," but as in "thorough"), bu with the tongue touching the mouth's ceiling, rather than the upper teeth.
'b' would be to bb, j to jj, g to gg, etc. So if you think of accentuated "ba" as "pha," then accentuated "ga" would be half way between "ca" and "ga," and accentuated "ja" would be half way between "ja" and "cha." "ssa" would be pronounced with a sort of a heavier, catapulted "s."
This video may help: Thanks for your interest! (Chunbum Park 20:49, 1 January 2011 (UTC))
Thanks for the video link, which I'll watch tomorrow when I can make a noise... (the second one) Ro Thorpe 01:36, 2 January 2011 (UTC)
Ah, yes, some allophonic variations, where some letters sound different depending on their position in the word; other cases of irregular spelling, where you sound one letter, but write another. Any cases of silent letters? (I think French probably holds the record there...) Ro Thorpe 17:29, 2 January 2011 (UTC)
Have a look at Tibetan and Irish, which both have loads of silent letters. Peter Jackson 10:19, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
As long as it's only an 'if'! Ro Thorpe 00:27, 3 January 2011 (UTC)---Ah, maybe not; anyway, I've answered there...

HUBO to approve

I've filled in the meta data for the to approve section. Andrew Alexander Wallace 06:19, 7 March 2011 (UTC)

Re Daniel Lofaro at Drexel University

Chunbum: I have just approved Daniel Lofaro's request to join CZ as an author. I also emailed him an explanation of the additional information that I need from him so that I can consider his application to an Editor. You may wish to let him know that, as an author, he is free to go ahead and make his corrections to the HUBO article. He does not have to wait until if and when he is made an Editor. Milton Beychok 00:17, 8 March 2011 (UTC)

Understood. Thank you. (Chunbum Park 01:03, 8 March 2011 (UTC))

Why is Daniel Lofaro not being active?

Why is Daniel Lofaro not being active and collaborating on HUBO? Are you able to contact him and ask him why he is not active? Milton Beychok 20:03, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

I think he must be very busy right now because of the exams and everything before spring break. He seemed pretty committed, however, telling me the article should not be approved without the changes needed. Even the youtube videos mention it.
(Chunbum Park 00:36, 16 March 2011 (UTC))
He is the best person to oversee the article's approval because he is one of the caretakers of the Jaemi HUBO's at Drexel. (Chunbum Park 00:50, 16 March 2011 (UTC))
Oh, I see, I thought the videos mentioned HUBO! You meant FINALS! I watched the whole thing :) D. Matt Innis 00:11, 17 March 2011 (UTC)
They are pretty interesting (cough cough). It's a youtube sensation as of now - maybe a bit past now. (Chunbum Park 00:51, 17 March 2011 (UTC))

Korean spice question (also Hayford)

When I routinely made kimchi, one of the ingredients that made it just right was to use a Korean pepper, medium hot and, when ground, much more purple than the ground Chinese and Thai peppers. I could go to the local Korean grocery and recognize it in the clear plastic bag, so I never learned the proper name.

Now, I have a friend wanting my recipe, and I'd like to make some kimchi myself. Do you have any idea of the actual name of this spice? Conceivably, a mail-order source? Good information to add to the article if so -- I also found that it didn't taste right if I did not add candied, not fresh, ginger. This is an interesting sourcing -- or not sourcing -- question.

I wonder if Hayford has a rule for using personal experience in his well-written food articles. Howard C. Berkowitz 19:06, 21 March 2011 (UTC)

If I understand what you mean, I *try* to keep personal tastes out of my articles. I almost never write a food article unless it's about something that I like to eat, so I am aware that I shouldn't write stuff like, "James Beard's recipe for fried bear paw tastes better than Julia Child's". The closest I've come, I think, is in the Mayonnaise article, where I wrote: "Homemade mayonnaise can also be made using raw egg whites, with no yolks at all, at least if it is done at high speed in a food processor. The resulting texture appears to be the same, and – if properly seasoned with salt, pepper, mustard, lemon juice, vinegar, and a little paprika – it tastes similar to traditional mayonnaise made with egg yolks." *I* think it's not only similar, but almost impossible to distinuish, but thought I better hedge my bets a little. Also, those are the seasonings that *I* use -- not everyone else would, I suppose. I wrote the same phrase at WP years ago -- dunno if it's still there, though. Hayford Peirce 20:20, 21 March 2011 (UTC)
Hello everyone. It might be a good idea to base food articles on personal experience because there can be so many things that can easily go wrong especially with food like kimchi. I bet 9 out of 10 easy recipes from a website will result in utter failure. I recently got into eating kimchi when my mom received buried kimchi made by one of her friends' mom. Eating buried kimchi, preferably with meat, is one of the best hidden secrets of in this universe.
I think the red pepper is generally called Korean chile pepper or Korean hot pepper in English. In Korean, it's called Cheong-yang-go-chu (청양고추)
It would be better to make the sauce yourself than to use factory-made paste. People who are lucky enough to receive the best ingredients from relatives or friends living in the countryside will be able to rely less on the stocks from store. (Chunbum Park 23:06, 21 March 2011 (UTC))
I think you might be able to grow your own red pepper: (Chunbum Park 23:08, 21 March 2011 (UTC))

About HUBO and Danial Lofaro

Chunbum, there are only two days left to edit HUBO before it is approved ... and still no word from Daniel Lofaro. Should I extend the date again? Or should we just give up on Daniel?? Let me know as soon as possible. Milton Beychok 22:02, 8 April 2011 (UTC)

Hi, Chunbum -- HUBO has been approved! Please take a look at it and let me know if it doesn't look like it should; this is the first time I've done an article approval and I hope I did it right.... Bruce M. Tindall 18:02, 25 April 2011 (UTC)

Please look at Apollo program

Chunbum, would you please review the Apollo program article and post your comments about it on the article's Talk page? Thanks, Milton Beychok 07:37, 23 June 2011 (UTC)

Chunbum, I finally got around to including a "Legacy" section in Apollo program as you suggested. I apologize for taking so long. Milton Beychok 00:06, 7 July 2011 (UTC)

Your name(s) (again)

Hello, me again. Is that a Chinese version of your name (the third after the English & Korean) you've just modified? Ro Thorpe 22:30, 13 July 2011 (UTC)---I forgot the edit summary; anyway, hope you like it...

Pleasure, happy to help. Ro Thorpe 17:50, 14 July 2011 (UTC)

Great work

Hi Chunbum! I just wanted to say how impressed I am with your work on the Featured Articles! Keep up the good work! Johan Förberg 10:17, 28 July 2011 (UTC)

Belgian Malinois

Here is the discussion page comments I just left. I am not sure why you feel the need to capriciously rewrite an article I am working on as there is plenty to do here. I leave your articles alone as I respect your work. I'd suggest you offer the same respect to me. Talk page comments follow: There was absolutely nothing wrong with the description or writing that was capriciously changed without written explanation. I have reverted back to the original article I was writing. As an "inuse" tag is not used here I can not tag the article as such. Also, there is plenty of articles waiting to be written, with few authors, so I would like to know why there is such an interest concerning an article I am attempting to write.

Featured Article

Hi, Chunbum. Since you're the Featured Article controller, could you fix the spelling mistake, please? 'Parsemonious' should read 'parsimonious'. Thanks! Ro Thorpe 14:34, 14 November 2011 (UTC)

It's OK, I've fixed it. Ro Thorpe 23:53, 15 November 2011 (UTC)

Approval of ASIMO

Chunbum, I responded to your post about the ASIMO article on my talk page at here. Milton Beychok 04:14, 21 December 2011 (UTC)

Chunbum, I have just opened the review process for this article. You, as the author, may comment on ASIMO/Approval why you think that the article is ready for Approval, and explain your competence for this topic. --Peter Schmitt 01:22, 22 December 2011 (UTC)
Chunbum, do you have any thoughts about Editors we might contact for consideration of nominating ASIMO for approval? Anthony.Sebastian 16:40, 21 February 2012 (UTC)
Chunbum, the ToApprove banner is now up for ASIMO. It would be good if we could get another Editor to review/support, from Robotics, Engineering, or Computers. Any suggestions who to approach? Anthony.Sebastian 22:14, 23 February 2012 (UTC)
I think an engineering editor like User:Ola Jetlund would be good to review the article. Let me ask him or her about it. (Chunbum Park 00:20, 24 February 2012 (UTC))

Chunbum, as said above, it would help the approval process if you would explain your background and connection to the ASIMO porject on ASIMO/Approval. Am I right that you have inside knowledge about it? --Peter Schmitt 00:58, 1 March 2012 (UTC)

No I don't have inside knowledge about it. Daniel M. Lofaro who helped with HUBO's approval did have inside knowledge about that project. I've built up knowledge about humanoid robots as I researched on HUBO and ASIMO. (Chunbum Park 04:30, 1 March 2012 (UTC))

Featured article

Hi, Chunbum. The EC (an we all) thank you very much for maintaining the featured article on the welcome page.
As was noticed only recently by Dan, you add author's names to the featured article. This is, however, in contrast to established CZ practice and not covered by the EC decision on the featured article. Therefore, please omit this attribution in the future. Thank you, --Peter Schmitt 00:15, 27 March 2012 (UTC)

Sure thing. I still think it's good idea to attribute contributions. Perhaps the EC could discuss this. (Chunbum Park 02:16, 27 March 2012 (UTC))

Thank you for your kindness

Thank you for your kindness. Sure made my day to see something encouraging. Mary Ash 17:07, 26 June 2012 (UTC)

Chartres Cathedral

Hi Chumbum, I thought you might like to know that I found on flickr a new photograph of the cathedral and have added it to your article. It's not perfect (it could perhaps do with some trimming to centre the cathedral), but I rather like the colours the photographer managed so hopefully you'll think it's an improvement.
