Forms of borealis[edit]

It is nice to see someone eager to add forms of Latin adjectives. However, your formatting is incorrect. You can see correct formatting in the forms of the adjecitve albus. Also, a bot exists that will be adding these forms, so doing them by hand is not necessary. --EncycloPetey 22:50, 29 November 2008 (UTC)

There is a lot of simple work a new contributor can do. You simply have to find a task you feel comfortable doing, and that may mean lurking a bit, watching Special:RecentChanges for ideas, or exploring. To become familiar with Wiktionary basics, there is a lot of formatting to learn, but there are far fewer policy and style guides than on Wikipedia. The key pages I recommend are: (1) WT:ELE which is our primarily style guide, (2) Category:Swedish language, since your WP pages lists that as your primary language, (3) Category:Requests (Swedish), where people have noted problems with Swedish entries, or have requested a new entry, and (4) WT:BP which is our primary discussion forum. You might look through the subcategories of Category:Swedish language, either by part of speech or by topic, and brainstorm for words that aren't listed. Sometimes the entry does exist, but hasn't been categorized. Other times, the entry just hasn't been made yet. There are similar categories for other languages, and I've been filling Latin requests today. I also recommedn you create a user page here, even if it only lists your languages and points to your WP user page. Having information about the languages that user's know is the most important bit of information here, and we don't generally bother with personal userboxes. --EncycloPetey 23:15, 29 November 2008 (UTC)
Addendum: You may also find User:Mike (and his user page) helpful, since Swedish is his native language as well, and he is an experienced editor here. --EncycloPetey 23:24, 29 November 2008 (UTC)
