Addv and pointed to site not in English. --Gtabary 12:56, 15 Nov 2004 (UTC)

  • Keep I think this is a reasonable substub; I`m hoping this article will be expanded soon (maybe I`ll get back to it), don`t see any reason for it to be deleted. --Ce garcon 13:11, 15 Nov 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep Hanjin is a significant company which deserves an article and a substub is a start. Kappa 14:55, 15 Nov 2004 (UTC)
  • Comment. Delete. More about the article: contains 6 words mentioning the name of a private company. Also exhibit a half empty (???) table, with a picture of... the company logo. Two commercial links (one to Korean page). Sheltering behind a substub doesn't make it different from advertisement. If this company is so huge and big, take two extra minutes to cut/paste and say any-thing about it. Right now there is no encyclopaedic aspect to it. A Goggle search indeed gives 70000 hits. So what ? Tell us something pleeease ! Ce garcon is generous: maybe he'll get back to the article! :-) --Gtabary 17:55, 15 Nov 2004 (UTC)
  • Spam. Delete unless rewritten. - Mike Rosoft 18:11, 15 Nov 2004 (UTC)
    • Changed my vote to abstain after expansion. Definitely still needs improvement. - Mike Rosoft 10:35, 16 Nov 2004 (UTC)
  • At the moment very weak delete, simply because it is a type of link spam. Improvement would merit keeping it. siroχo 18:36, Nov 15, 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete substub unless significantly expanded by Nov 20. Niteowlneils 20:19, 15 Nov 2004 (UTC)
Keep stub. Total of 21 subsidaries in a suprisingly wide variety of fields. Probably move to Hanjin Group. Niteowlneils 23:08, 15 Nov 2004 (UTC)
Also note that it now has a single external link, directly to the English version of their Website. Niteowlneils 00:36, 16 Nov 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. I've made it into a stub. This is a big company with fair importance in Korea Mozzerati 22:27, 2004 Nov 15 (UTC)
  • Keep. This is a large company, Korea is a major market and its 6th largest company is nothing to scoff at. Added to this is the fact that several of its executives are currently being prosecuted. This is roughly equivelent, for example, to a top executive from Intel or Boeing being charged with fraud in America. Rje 23:19, 15 Nov 2004 (UTC)
  • Weak keep, but the table needs to be fixed. Wifki 07:06, 16 Nov 2004 (UTC)
  • Strong keep. This appears notable as it currently appears. GRider 22:51, 17 Nov 2004 (UTC)
  • Strong keep. Owners of Korean Air. A globally notable and researchable Chaebol and indeed multinational, I have seen Hanjin shipping containers on trucks and trains in North America. Involved in major public scandal. Samaritan 05:49, 19 Nov 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep it. [[User:Radman1|RaD Man (talk)]] 10:20, 20 Nov 2004 (UTC)
