Hello, welcome to Wiktionary, and thank you for your contribution 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.
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.
Name of Polish cake.
Hi there. In our local Polish deli I bought a cake - roundish, glazed on top with some yellow bits, lemony taste and something like Nutella inside. The lady said it was called something like "pontyuk", but I have no idea how to spell it. Any ideas? SemperBlotto (talk) 15:50, 7 March 2013 (UTC)
- Hi there again. A new one in the Polish deli today. Googling found makowiec but, although it contained poppy seed, it was shaped like a flat cake, rather than a slice of a longer loaf. The young lady told me what it was called but it wouldn't penetrate my brain. Any ideas? SemperBlotto (talk) 09:48, 27 April 2013 (UTC)
- I got the young lady to write it down - 1) "drozolzonka" (zero Google hits) 2) "makiem" (similar to "makowiec"?) SemperBlotto (talk) 10:01, 11 May 2013 (UTC)
