Hi, I glaced at your interesting new experiment. Please be sure what you come up with conforms to the general layout recommended in WT:ELE. Good luck. --Connel MacKenzie 17:25, 15 September 2006 (UTC)

Here is the standard welcome template for Wikipedians joining Wiktionary:

Hello, and welcome to Wiktionary!

If you have edited Wikipedia, you probably already know some basics, but Wiktionary does have a few conventions of its own. Please take a moment to learn our basics before jumping in.

First, all articles should be in our standard format, even if they are not yet complete. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with it. You can use one of our pre-defined article templates by typing the name of a non-existent article into the search box and hitting 'Go'.

Notice that article titles are case-sensitive and are not capitalized unless, like proper nouns, they are ordinarily capitalized (Poland or January). Also, take a moment to familiarize yourself with our criteria for inclusion, since Wiktionary is not an encyclopedia. Don't go looking for a Village pump – we have a Beer parlour. Note that while Wikipedia likes redirects, Wiktionary deletes most redirects, (especially spelling variations) in favor of short entries. Please do not copy entries here from Wikipedia if they are in w:CAT:MtW; request the full history import instead, at WT:ID.

Finally, you can link Wikipedia pages, including your user page, using [[w:pagename]], {{wikipedia}}, or {{wikipediapar|pagename}}. Please do not create redirects to Wikipedia pages, though. They don't work.

We hope you enjoy editing Wiktionary and being a Wiktionarian. --Connel MacKenzie 17:25, 15 September 2006 (UTC)

This is not going to work.

There is no way that we can go around renumbering every parameter when we add a language; and multiple boxes are worse.

The idea of using the classes to get show/hide has been suggested before; but no one has gotten around to it. What you should do is copy {{top}} to {{new-top}} (or whatever), and make it work. (I'm pretty sure you need a {{new-bottom}} too, but {{mid}} will serve as is.) If it works, and people like it, we can replace it into top (which you notice is protected for a reason!)

Or not. There is something about your style that seems awfully familiar ... Robert Ullmann 20:36, 15 September 2006 (UTC)

Please rollback[edit]

Please start rolling back your recent changes. Your experiment has far too many problems to proceed with more than ONE single entry. When all but one have been rolled back, please discuss your proposal at length on WT:GP or WT:BP to hear all the reasons why it won't work. --Connel MacKenzie 21:03, 15 September 2006 (UTC)


Ah, we already have {{temp}}. Robert Ullmann 22:48, 15 September 2006 (UTC)

Okay, didn't know that. Flameviper 22:50, 15 September 2006 (UTC)

Look, you can make this work. But not the way you are trying to do it.

First, create your own user subpage, don't play on important main namespace pages.

Then create a template for the top of the table. Not the whole table!

In the middle use {{mid}}

At the bottom use a copy of {{bottom}}, adding the two end div tags.

And you can make it work, but I've looked at your edits and you need to learn more about the HTML or you are going to keep getting frustrated. Robert Ullmann 14:37, 16 September 2006 (UTC)
