Welcome!

Hello, welcome to Wiktionary, and thank you for your contributions so far. Here are a few good links for newcomers:

  • How to edit a page is a concise list of technical guidelines to the wiki format we use here: how to, for example, make text boldfaced or create hyperlinks. Feel free to practice in the sandbox. If you would like a slower introduction we have a short tutorial.
  • Entry layout explained (ELE) is a detailed policy documenting how Wiktionary pages should be formatted. All entries should conform to this standard, the easiest way to do this is to copy exactly an existing page for a similar word.
  • Our Criteria for inclusion (CFI) define exactly which words Wiktionary is interested in including. There is also a list of things that Wiktionary is not for a higher level overview.
  • If you already have some experience with editing our sister project Wikipedia, then you may find our guide to Wikipedia users useful.
  • The FAQ aims to answer most of your remaining questions, and there are several help pages that you can browse for more information.
  • We have discussion rooms in which you can ask any question about Wiktionary or its entries, a glossary of our technical jargon, and some hints for dealing with the more common communication issues.

Also, please add a BabelBox to your userpage so we can help you with the languages you'll be working in.

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wiktionarian! If you have any questions, bring them to the Wiktionary:Information desk, or ask me on my talk page. If you do so, please sign your posts with four tildes: ~~~~ which automatically produces your username and the current date and time.

Latin numerals[edit]

Your entries lack a ===part of speech=== section and a headword (amongst other things). See quadraginta for an example of a properly formatted entry. SemperBlotto (talk) 07:49, 21 July 2013 (UTC)

Use[edit]

We don’t use redirects for things like that. We only use it when there isn’t the slightest chance a word has an entry in another language (like give a man a fish and he can eat for a day, teach a man to fish and he can eat for life; you can bet your life that this expression doesn’t occur outside English). Even if for some reason the word finds usage capitalised, we add a form-of entry using the template {{alternative capitalization of}} (for example, Bank Holiday).

Note that the Mediawiki software automatically redirects to the correct page when there isn’t one with the specified capitalisation. If you type Use in the search box, it will redirect you to use. — Ungoliant (Falai) 20:11, 5 September 2013 (UTC)

muff[edit]

This is not how we delete entries; use {{rfv}} if you wish. Don't be too quick to assume that just because you haven't heard of a word, it doesn't exist. Languages are big things. Mglovesfun (talk) 19:22, 6 October 2013 (UTC)
