I formerly went by Astral on Wiktionary, but changed my username to Cloudcuckoolander in May 2013.


Some Wikisaurus citing[edit]

Would you be able to cite the following redlinks from Wikisaurus:clitoris? happy button, hooded monk, love button, magic bean, pink jelly bean, venus mound. For those that you would be unable to cite, please don't delete them from Wikisaurus, since I would send them to RFV to give them a chance. --Dan Polansky (talk) 09:56, 14 June 2014 (UTC)

I'll see what I can do. -Cloudcuckoolander (talk) 03:31, 19 June 2014 (UTC)
I was able to cite happy button and love button. I couldn't cite hooded monk, magic bean, or pink jelly bean. Venus mound is a synonym of mons veneris, not clitoris. -Cloudcuckoolander (talk) 05:41, 19 June 2014 (UTC)
Thank you. --Dan Polansky (talk) 17:29, 20 June 2014 (UTC)

Some Wikisaurus citing 2[edit]

There are many redlinks at Wikisaurus:labia, in case you would like to give them a shot. Multiple of them are defined in Urban dictionary. --Dan Polansky (talk) 11:53, 21 June 2014 (UTC)

If it's still redlinked, I was unable to cite it. Excepting piss clam, which I was able to cite under the sense "a clam which squirts water," but not under any sense related to female anatomy. -Cloudcuckoolander (talk) 05:44, 24 June 2014 (UTC)


Is this a synonym of the words that you recently created? --Æ&Œ (talk) 07:53, 24 June 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for pointing this out. I'll put it on my Wiktionary agenda. -Cloudcuckoolander (talk) 17:37, 27 June 2014 (UTC)

Is your name Daniel?[edit]

--Æ&Œ (talk) 06:35, 27 June 2014 (UTC)

I'd be a Danielle. Just sayin'. -Cloudcuckoolander (talk) 17:36, 27 June 2014 (UTC)
You’re a woman‽ I had no idea. --Æ&Œ (talk) 03:15, 28 June 2014 (UTC)
"Je suis une Canadienne." :) -Cloudcuckoolander (talk) 17:05, 28 June 2014 (UTC)
Ah, I do remember that discussion, but I forgot about that detail. (By the way, it’s more common to write «…suis Canadienne…», sans article.) --Æ&Œ (talk) 18:27, 28 June 2014 (UTC)
By the way, «…suis canadienne…» --Type56op9 (talk) 23:23, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the corrections. :) -Cloudcuckoolander (talk) 22:59, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

Some Wikisaurus citing 3[edit]

Wikisaurus:drunk contains 19 redlinks, in case you would like try to attest them. --Dan Polansky (talk) 14:13, 27 July 2014 (UTC)

Sorry for the horribly tardy reply. I will do what I can (slowly, though, unfortunately) and report back to you. -Cloudcuckoolander (talk) 07:28, 18 September 2014 (UTC)
I am grateful and indebted for your efforts, no matter how delayed or slow they may be. --Dan Polansky (talk) 07:23, 20 September 2014 (UTC)
If it's still a redlink, I couldn't cite it under the sense "drunk." With the exception of had one over the eight and had one too many. Those two are citable, but I'm not sure whether we should treat them as adjectives, or instead create noun entries for one over the eight and one too many. -Cloudcuckoolander (talk) 09:49, 21 September 2014 (UTC)
Appreciated. I removed the redlinks. --Dan Polansky (talk) 10:06, 21 September 2014 (UTC)


Hullo. Why did you define this as a noun? --Æ&Œ (talk) 04:01, 18 September 2014 (UTC)

Silly mistake. I have a text document on my computer that I use for creating entries, and sometimes I neglect to change parameters. I evidently used the document to create a noun entry and then forgot to change the heading to adjective when I went to create the entry for this term. Thanks for catching that for me. :) -Cloudcuckoolander (talk) 06:59, 18 September 2014 (UTC)


Is it possible to define this as ‘the fear of having one’s picture taken?’ --Æ&Œ (talk) 17:09, 20 September 2014 (UTC)

I must say, your interests here make me desire to ask you some questions (preferably in private; e‐mail). Of course, if you aren’t willing to disclose any information to me, then I’m perfectly willing to understand, madame. --Romanophile (talk) 05:15, 7 November 2014 (UTC)

I'm a much more boring person than my contribution history probably suggests. I soak up interesting words like a sponge and add them to Wiktionary if they don't already have entries. Sometimes, I make projects for myself, like adding as many terms for different types of fan (Arianator, etc.) as it is possible for me to cite. Or phobias. Or 4chan slang. Or Tumblr neologisms.
I prefer to Wiktionary separate from real life and other online endeavors. So I'm sorry to have to turn down your request. :( -Cloudcuckoolander (talk) 01:26, 8 November 2014 (UTC)
For some good news: I was able to cite photophobia under the sense you suggested. :) -Cloudcuckoolander (talk) 02:10, 8 November 2014 (UTC)

think of the children[edit]

Hi there Cloudcuckoolander, you had previously helped out and added an entry I improved, Streisand effect, as Word of the day.

Equinox (talkcontribs) created the entry on think of the children and I recently improved it.

I nominated it at Wiktionary:Word of the day/Nominations, however Ungoliant MMDCCLXIV (talkcontribs) mentioned at user talk:Equinox that unfortunately these days most of those that appear on the Main Page are recycled entries from prior years because it's pretty inactive.

I was wondering if you could add it to one of the upcoming dates for Word of the day?

Thank you,

-- Cirt (talk) 20:57, 5 November 2014 (UTC)

I retired from overseeing WotD over a year ago, and I fear I've forgotten how to properly add entries to the queue. Sorry that I can't be of any assistance in this matter. -Cloudcuckoolander (talk) 03:33, 6 November 2014 (UTC)
Ah okay, no worries, I got help from others, thank you! -- Cirt (talk) 18:56, 16 November 2014 (UTC)

special snowflake[edit]

What’s a special snow flake? --Romanophile (talk) 23:28, 4 December 2014 (UTC)

A snowflake of determinant 1. Keφr 22:15, 5 December 2014 (UTC)
It's usually used sarcastically to indicate someone who sees themselves as way more exceptional and unique than most people. -Cloudcuckoolander (talk) 00:57, 6 December 2014 (UTC)
Blast, I didn’t check snowflake to see the definitions. Please delete this useless topic. --Romanophile (talk) 12:20, 6 December 2014 (UTC)
It's not useless. I'd previously considered creating an entry for special snowflake. -Cloudcuckoolander (talk) 23:02, 7 December 2014 (UTC)

So, would you like to be amigos with me? --Romanophile (talk) 01:55, 8 December 2014 (UTC)

We're already wikimigos. :) -Cloudcuckoolander (talk) 05:07, 8 December 2014 (UTC)
That’s great! Do you desire to be in contact with me? I use a few programmes like Facebook and Skype to keep in touch with people. You don’t have to accept this, of course; just a proposal. --Romanophile (talk) 10:47, 12 December 2014 (UTC)
You already asked this quesion, and the answer was no. I have tried to be understanding/gentle, but now you're ignoring boundaries that were clearly established. -Cloudcuckoolander (talk) 18:59, 15 December 2014 (UTC)
I'm sorry that I lost my cool like that. There's a lot of stuff going on in my life right now. -Cloudcuckoolander (talk) 23:02, 16 December 2014 (UTC)
I don’t recall asking that question before, but that’s probably because I’m an idiot who constantly obliviates everything. And I don’t think that you should feel obligated to apologize; I believe that scumbags deserve no compassion nor forgiveness. If anything, I should be sorry. --Romanophile (talk) 15:55, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
