These questions are answered by Jomarie:
Q: I don’t think your information is liable. May I ask where you get all your knowledge for the profiles and pages from?
A: I know it may seem like our information may be unreliable sometimes, and you have every right to think that. However, if you are extremely positive that we made a mistake, please don’t hesitate to LET US KNOW. We don’t bite, and chances are, we won’t catch our own mistakes half of the time. Also, the information we get consists of a variety of sites. I (Jomarie) mainly use Google, YouTube and Jenpoo.com. Other sites that appear the most trustworthy I gather information from each one as well. I never use just one site for info for a profile!
Q: I pointed out your mistake for you, but why is it that you still didn’t change it on the page?
A: Well, here’s the thing. We appreciate it if you do catch our mistakes, but we as editors and administrator still need to double check, just in case. We can’t just take someone’s word for something, although that is the case most of the time if that piece of info offered to us is something that we have heard of already.
Q: I would like to be a part of the SuMandu team. How is this possible?
A: Honestly, it is not my (Jomarie) job whether or not I can choose more people to be a part of the team. It is SuMandu’s job, since she is the main adminisitrator of this site. Try emailing her, asking her on her Tumblr, and asking her on her “About Sumandu” page as well. In the end, you’lll just have to wait and see what she does!
Q: I have requested multiple times for a profile to be made. When is it going to be finished?
A: In all honesty, profiles truthfully take a lot of time to be made. We need to gather pictures, reliable information and such. I apologize if you have been waiting for a long time for a profile to be made, but all you can do is just ask and wait. Also, how fast a profile gets made depends on the popularity of the request. If more than a few people ask for a group’s profile, most likely it will be created much sooner than most.
Q: What does the name in parenthesis next to the group name on a profile page mean?
A: Examples would be SS501 (Super Stars 5 United as 1) or Girls’ Generation (SNSD). The names in parenthesis are just the alternative name for the group or the meaning behind the group’s name. That’s all!
Q: I think you’re missing something on this profile.
A: Check the bottom of the profile to see when the page was last updated! If some new info has come out but the page has been updated last before the information came out, then that’s probably why the info isn’t there yet. Just let us know and we’ll add it!
Q: Why is it that some profiles have discographies and others don’t?
A: Good question. The thing is, the newer profiles – meaning the most recent ones by when they were created – have the discography list, the music video list and the debut date because they were created by me, Jomarie. The ones not created by me don’t have them. Each editor and the admin herself have different styles in how they maintain this site!
Q: This idol’s name is spelled wrong. Isn’t it spelled like this ______?
A: Well it depends on the spelling. Some letters are pronounced the same in Hangul, like “o” and “u” for example. For instance, Changju and Changjo are pronounced the same, just like mandoo and mandu and soo and su are as well.
Q: Can I troll/ spam on your site?
A: ABSOLUTELY NOT. Trollers and spammers – as well as anti fans – are not appreciated here. Please take it somewhere else.
Q: What is the difference between “Main” and “Lead”?
A: We get this question a lot. A main singer or dancer is usually the person with the most singing or dancing skills. They usually have the most talent and get the most time singing or dancing. A lead singer or dancer is a person who usually goes first in songs and performances. They are quite talented too, and that’s why they get the chance to appear first. But in general, “main” triumphs “lead”.
Q: I can’t find something on your site. I’m sure you had it before.
A: Chances are it got taken down or changed. That, or it was never there to begin with. If you’re still confused, just ask us on the “REQUESTS, PROBLEMS, QUESTIONS” page.
Q: I wanna know ___________./ What’s the reason ___________./ Is it true ____________?/ Where is __________?
A: Okay. Easy. Here’s your answer. Thanks for asking!
Q: I have an idea for a new page under the “MORE KPOP INFORMATION” tab. Can I offer my idea to you guys?
A: Yes! Go ahead! But first, just make sure that you include all the details and the things needed for the page. Also, tell us why you want this page and how it is helpful to others!
