Language indexes[edit]

Is there any good reason why the language indexes have randomly different formats? For instance, the English index includes words whether or not defined, in a single column, while the German index seems to have only a selected few, in a hyphenated form and a little exploring shows a bunch of definitions of German words to be missing. It seems more useful to have the indexes be "complete" by filling them up with as many words as possible, then the color of links tells you what you have and don't have.

No good reason at all, except that not many do the work that is required for such indexing. So I have no problem agreeing with you. These have been developed by many people, each with his own view, before any attempt was made to standardize them. I see now that you have put the German material into better shape. That's great!

WiktionaryLang extension[edit]

Take a look at the work in progress which will make manual indeces obsolete: http://wiktionarydev.leuksman.com/index.php/Special:WiktionaryLang

I can't use that list to hunt for Austronesian languages if I want to do a linguistic comparison. But I can do that with the manual index. Sorry, but you'll have to do a heck of a lot more than put together a little alphabetical list to make the manual categories obsolete. --EncycloPetey 02:02, 26 February 2007 (UTC)
Sure could. It would be pretty easy actually. Put up a request. — Hippietrail 02:33, 26 February 2007 (UTC)
