Ed, I have wikified, expanded and simplified Jeffersonian. SemperBlotto 13:07, 23 September 2005 (UTC)

~Hi Ed. I just noticed your edits to the Korean particle articles. Are you sure that these can only come after a noun? My Korean grammar isn't so hot but I would've expected that they can come after a pronoun as well and probably some kinds of nominal phrases whose last word is something other than a noun. — Hippietrail

Sorry for the belated answer. But you're right. Not just nouns per se but pronouns too.
My error came from forgetting that English makes a distinction between nouns and pronouns. The Korean grammar books I've been studying kind of blur that distinction. Anything that a noun can do (or which applies to a noun), applies equally to a pronoun in Korean, AFAIK.

tradecraft[edit]

I have converted this into a dictionary entry. You might like to add a ===See also=== section with such items as dead drop.

But first, PLEASE look at those links at the top and learn how to format entries. It isn't difficult. SemperBlotto 13:57, 4 October 2005 (UTC)

Okay, sorry, I'm a slow learner. I'm a know-it-all at Wikipedia and a newbie here. What a deal. ;-) Ed Poor 16:05, 4 October 2005 (UTC)
Well then, welcome! {{pediawelcome}}.  :-)   --Connel MacKenzie 20:48, 5 October 2006 (UTC)

Redirects[edit]

I deleted the redirect you made from to . Currently wiktionary doesn't hard-redirect alterative or derived terms, it makes soft redirects or stub entries, e.g. rabbits says "Plural form of rabbit". Apart from that, 쇠 is better as a red link because it has other meanings, e.g. "iron". Kappa 07:12, 9 February 2007 (UTC)

Okay, that's good to know! Thanks. --Ed Poor 00:47, 12 February 2007 (UTC)

Javascript[edit]

Hi,

About your question on WT:GP, yes, we Javascript here.  :-) The mostly-Javascript generated page, WT:PREFS allows you to turn on and off different items as "Wiktionary preferences" using HTTP cookies. One of them is the "Lupin popups" which load a customized version for nicer handling of Wiktionary items.
