Hi, please take a look at some of the links below. I think there is a danger some terms you are adding, like sexual culture, may not meet our Criteria for Inclusion. Ƿidsiþ 12:42, 10 April 2013 (UTC)

Welcome!

Hello, welcome to Wiktionary, and thank you for your contributions so far.

If you are unfamiliar with wiki editing, take a look at Help:How to edit a page. It 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.

These links may help you familiarize yourself with Wiktionary:

  • 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 start off is to copy the contents of an existing page for a similar word, and then adapt it to fit the entry you are creating.
  • Our Criteria for inclusion (CFI) define exactly which words can be added to Wiktionary, though it may be a bit technical and longwinded. The most important part is that Wiktionary only accepts words that have been in somewhat widespread use over the course of at least a year, and citations that demonstrate usage can be asked for when there is doubt.
  • If you already have some experience with editing our sister project Wikipedia, then you may find our guide for 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.
  • A glossary of our technical jargon, and some hints for dealing with the more common communication issues.
  • If you have anything to ask about or suggest, we have several discussion rooms. Feel free to ask any other editors in person if you have any problems or question, by posting a message on their talk page.

You are encouraged to add a BabelBox to your userpage. This shows which languages you know, so other editors know which languages you'll be working on, and what they can ask you for help with.

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.

Again, welcome!

hadron physics[edit]

Hi. If "hadron physics" is "physics of hadrons" then it may not be a good candidate for a dictionary entry (in the same way "brown leaf" is "leaf that is brown") — even though it's a good topic for an encyclopaedia. Equinox 13:41, 10 April 2013 (UTC)

Except that "hadron physics" is a compound noun versus "brown leaf" is an adjective and a noun. It should be included along with other subfields of particle physics. Nicole Sharp (talk) 13:44, 10 April 2013 (UTC)

Conversation moved to talk:hadron physics. Nicole Sharp (talk) 14:11, 10 April 2013 (UTC)

Not Wikipedia[edit]

Hi,

Just so you know, we don't include entries based on their encyclopedic value (in Wikipedia slang, being 'notable') but on their lexical merit as defined in WT:CFI. Either single words or multi-word terms that meet WT:CFI#Idiomaticity. Thank you, Mglovesfun (talk) 13:08, 11 April 2013 (UTC)

WT:RU TR[edit]

Are you aware of this page? It seems that some of the "typos" you're fixing may actually be correct per our romanization standards. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 04:43, 14 April 2013 (UTC)

I have always used the official Russian/Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) standard of ISO 9:1995, wikipedia:Romanization of Russian#GOST 7.79 (2002) / wikipedia:ISO 9. I didn't know about using the ɛ in loanwords for Wiktionary, I'm not sure if that is official or not, I've never seen that before. I thought it was a typo from someone trying to write an IPA phonetic spelling instead of a Romanization. I can revert the changes if it's not a typo. Nicole Sharp (talk) 04:54, 14 April 2013 (UTC)

Yes, we have a local standard instead of the ISO standard. I apologise for any confusion. Please undo any changes you made from the standard, if you would be so kind. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 05:44, 14 April 2013 (UTC)
It was just the two, thanks. I see the nonstandard transliteration on the other pages too now. How come Wiktionary is not using the official international standard for Romanizing Russian though? Nicole Sharp (talk) 06:01, 14 April 2013 (UTC)
This was the result of much discussion and compromise. If you would like to raise the issue again, feel free to do so by creating a new section at Wiktionary talk:Russian transliteration. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 14:09, 14 April 2013 (UTC)
It seems there are a lot of posts complaining about the Wiktionary scheme and even one just about the use of Greek "ɛ" for a Romanization of Cyrillic "e" which I found jarring myself when I first saw it in a transliteration; I re-opened the discussion for input.
