I originally just deleted this, but, to be fair to the contributor, I decided it was best to check about what we do with such things. My original impression was that it was a way to create what would normally be an appendix outside of the appendix namespace. I'm now told that this is being used as a sort of sandbox to develop content for the entry. This is a huge amount of largely encyclopedic content- I wonder how much of this could ever be appropriately added to the entry. I also wonder why this couldn't go in a user-page subpage.

Well it clearly shouldn't be here, the content should be at , right? Userfying seems ok too, it's pretty standard to 'draft' ideas on user subpages on Wikipedia, the reason we don't do it so much here is our entries are much shorter than Wikipedia articles.

  • For my 2p, I'd say nix the bit about "The conquest of Champa", not least since that's a quote in English about use of the term in Vietnamese, which has exactly bupkus to do with use of the term in Korean. But the rest of it looks like appropriate content for the Korean entry. Korean, like Japanese, has borrowed tons of vocabulary from Chinese, and these Sinically derived terms have many synonyms and many compounds, so the length of those two subsections strikes me as perfectly normal for a hanja / kanji entry.
I had been talking with User:KYPark about something else and s/he mentioned creating the Talk:屯/Korean page as a sandbox, but I didn't understand what s/he meant at the time. Seeing the sandbox page itself and reading Chuck's and Mglovesfun's comments above, I agree that this kind of drafting would be better done on a user's own subpage. I'll make a note at User_talk:KYPark to that effect, and if s/he is okay with it, I'm happy to move the Talk:屯/Korean page to a more appropriate place, perhaps User:KYPark/Sandbox. -- Eiríkr Útlendi │ Tala við mig 18:32, 9 July 2012 (UTC)
I was thinking of User:KYPark/屯. It really doesn't matter that much. Mglovesfun (talk) 21:11, 10 July 2012 (UTC)
Oh it's already there! So delete. Mglovesfun (talk) 21:12, 10 July 2012 (UTC)
  • After I brought it to his/her attention, s/he copied the content to a user subpage. So yes, delete. -- Eiríkr Útlendi │ Tala við mig 00:06, 11 July 2012 (UTC)
