Arguments in favour

  • Support Support Korean Wikipedia Users want to open this project. This project is very useful. --Albamhandae 00:23, 22 January 2009 (UTC)
  • Support Support 위키뉴스 한국어판을 열더라도 기존의 네티즌참여형 뉴스 사이트들이 이미 활발히 운영중이라 기여 수는 적을 것 같습니다. 그러나 한국어 위키백과에 이따금 올라오는 시사성이 강한 글들을 흡수할 수 있을 겁니다.(translation: even if opening korean wikinews, the number of articles may be small because there are netizen-participating news sites which are very active. but opening korean wikinews can absorb some articles which are nearer to news rather than encyclopedia.)--Ilovesabbath 06:39, 5 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Support Support Many Korean Wikipedia users want to write news, so Korean Wikinews will be useful. --ENIGMA7 13:00, 6 February 2009 (UTC)

I have proposed to the language committee to allow for the creation of a ko.wn Thanks, GerardM 12:01, 1 July 2010 (UTC)

Project is approved. We need some details now: --Millosh 15:34, 29 July 2010 (UTC)

  • Your logo (point to the image at Commons)
  • The word Wikinews in Korean
  • The word for Project namespace (probably "Wikinews" in Korean, but not necessary).

Please, provide them ASAP, so I can fill the bug. --Millosh 15:34, 29 July 2010 (UTC)

Wikinews is “위키뉴스” in Korean. Logo is now on discussion at ko:위키백과:사랑방/2010년 제30주#한국어 위키뉴스가 승인되었습니다. - IRTC1015 (talk) 14:52, 30 July 2010 (UTC)
Vote for the project logo is being held at incubator:Wn/ko/위키뉴스:사랑방#한국어 위키뉴스 로고 선호도 조사 --Gapo 16:11, 30 July 2010 (UTC)
The word for project namespace is the same as project name in Korean(위키뉴스). --Albamhandae 15:01, 30 July 2010 (UTC)
...and the Project talk namespace is 위키뉴스토론, right? Cbrown1023 talk 16:24, 30 July 2010 (UTC)
That would be OK. - IRTC1015 (talk) 16:44, 30 July 2010 (UTC)

OK. Please, poke me (email is the best idea, millosh@gmail.com) when you decide which logo passed as the official one. --Millosh 16:56, 30 July 2010 (UTC)

The vote for project log is over. This was selected as the logo for ko.wn. Thanks. --Gapo 02:10, 12 August 2010 (UTC)
And please set KST(UTC+9) as local timezone. Best regards. – Kwj2772 (msg) 08:17, 13 August 2010 (UTC)
