Welcome!

Hello, and welcome to Wiktionary. Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are a few good links for newcomers:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wiktionarian! By the way, you can sign your name on Talk (discussion) and vote pages using four tildes, like this: ~~~~, which automatically produces your name and the current date. If you have any questions, see the help pages, add a question to one of the discussion rooms or ask me on my Talk page.

Did you know that Wiktionary can be adapted to fit your style? Go have a look at your personal preference page (nicknamed “PREFS”)! In particular, you can choose the option to show hidden categories, which will be of great help if you are looking for work to do.

Again, welcome! --EncycloPetey 18:51, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

Redirects[edit]

Please do not create redirects between spellings. Wiktionary does not use redirects. See Wiktionary:Redirections. --EncycloPetey 18:51, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

"Měiguó", and "美国" are the same Chinese word. I don't see anything in the policy about Romanizations of words in non-Roman script. I think it is a different case than a spelling variation because "Měiguó" is not used by native speakers to communicate with each other. Kauffner 19:31, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
Once more. Please do not redirect between spellings. We do not create entries or redirects for transliterations. --EncycloPetey 07:09, 8 January 2009 (UTC)
I suggest looking at Wiktionary:About Chinese, and if this page does not answer your questions, you might ask User:A-cai, who is our most experienced contributor for Chinese entries. --EncycloPetey 07:15, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

America[edit]

I have reverted your edit, as the Romanian did, in fact, come from the Latin. The information you entered is already present in the Latin etymology, and is thus redundant. Any questions feel free to ask. -Atelaes λάλει ἐμοί 05:16, 8 January 2009 (UTC)
