Cool, I never knew that thing had a name. Are you working from a word list at the moment? Equinox 17:11, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

  • I didn't know either. My word list is User:Pengo/missing 1-grams - We've both visited it before, and have both had to sift through a fair amount of crap in order to find some gems. --Type56op9 (talk) 17:16, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
Unlikely but if you're still around Camden (or ever were), will be in the World's End at 2 p.m. on Saturday, with a towering six-and-a-half-foot Goth. Come and say hi if you want. Equinox 18:08, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
Nope, I'll be in Leeds actually. Maybe I should tell Gloves, come to mention it. --Type56op9 (talk) 23:17, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
Get him to come back to Wikt :) Equinox 18:57, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
He's back already - User:Renard Migrant --Type56op9 (talk) 20:20, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

Adding rfdef without any kind of hint, clue, or citation[edit]

Don't do that. Basically pointless. At least show where you found it and what the context was. Equinox 01:02, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

OK --Type56op9 (talk) 01:56, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

skyline[edit]

How do you know that skyline means something in computing? --kc_kennylau (talk) 03:27, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

  • here and here and here and here. On second thoughts, it might be something mathematical. Just that I don't understand it at all! --Type56op9 (talk) 08:48, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

Googling "skylining" with "database" brings up loads of random stuff, and I know for sure we haven't got a suitable definition for skyline to suit it! --Type56op9 (talk) 08:50, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

This seems to be one of those terms introduced by a single writer that may or may not have caught on. I found a presentation that says: "In a database, a Skyline is a set of tuples of information (points) which stand out among the others because are of special interest to us. More formally: A Skyline is defined as those points which are not dominated by any other point. A point dominates another point if it is as good or better in all dimensions and better in at least one dimension." Whether anyone uses the term in general I don't know.

Spanish stuff[edit]

[1]. This one has the alternative forms. Remember to add that code to your js and to fix the HWLs. — Ungoliant (falai) 00:58, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

  • What where HWLs again? --Type56op9 (talk) 08:27, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
The program copies the HWL from the lemma, which means that güeón (alt. form of huevón) will have {{es-adj|f=huevona|mpl=huevones|fpl=huevonas}}. In these cases you have to manually change the inflected forms, and the head= parameter usually needs to be updated as well. Most of the time you won’t need to do anything (which is why I don’t bother to write something more complex), but you need to check all of them.
The js is OK. Is it working? — Ungoliant (falai) 15:34, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
Not working. I'll tell you what I did...First, I copied the entire text from here and pasted it into a notepad file. Then I saved it as a .htm file (WTSpanish.htm). Then I made User:Type56op9/custom.js. And now, when I open up WTSpanish.htm using Google Chrome, I get a lot of links but clicking on them doesn't generate any text. Any tips? Perhaps something with the .htm file, or browser, or my .js script? --Type56op9 (talk) 16:49, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
Actually the title is wrong. Move it to User:Type56op9/common.js. — Ungoliant (falai) 17:08, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
Also, while the alternative forms are nice, I'd say that translations would be even more useful, which if you have to generate, it would be amazing. --Type56op9 (talk) 16:53, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
Calm your tits! I’ll get to it. — Ungoliant (falai) 17:08, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
BTW, it’s a good idea to do all of the alternative forms before you do the rest, because some of them show up in the translation links. — Ungoliant (falai) 18:07, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, cool. I'll work my way through them, and weed out any bad results. --Type56op9 (talk) 18:26, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
OK, that page has all been processed. Mostly it was decent, albeit boring, stuff. Anything I didn't process was either wrong, or I couldn't be bothered with it. I hope I kept the mistakes down to a minimum. But you never know with me...--Type56op9 (talk) 20:06, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
Hmm, quite a few errors on my part. I'll be more careful next time --Type56op9 (talk) 21:22, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
Here it is. Use extra care. If you’re getting an average of more than three entries per minute you’re doing something wrong. — Ungoliant (falai) 20:38, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
Lovely! Thanks so much UMAD! That's just down to antecedentes penales in the alphabet, so obviously there's enough work in there for a long long time after I'm done with that. I'll get started, and I accept your challenge of an average of 3 entries per minute. If I process these quicker than that, then I win. --Type56op9 (talk) 20:46, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
Here are the alternative forms from the latest dump: [2]. — Ungoliant (falai) 14:50, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. --Type56op9 (talk) 10:53, 13 September 2014 (UTC)

otrora[edit]

Are you sure this is used as an adjective? — Ungoliant (falai) 16:38, 13 September 2014 (UTC)
