Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary

Should we make it "...of the week" instead? Do we have enough (and will we have enough continued) interest to have a daily word? (Maybe daily is good, but I thought i should raise the question.)​—msh210 (talk) 18:58, 6 August 2012 (UTC)

I've heard this point before, and I agree with it. Mglovesfun (talk) 18:59, 6 August 2012 (UTC)
If it's a question of your interest, I can't answer that. If it's a question of our interest, I can assure you that we (Ungoliant and I) will be able to have a new word for each day ready, and we also are thinking about training a/some backup(s), especially if it seems like we might not be able to keep up.
I also know that for our readers, who certainly notice the English WOTD, having the same word for a whole week would get boring. --Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 19:42, 6 August 2012 (UTC)
We have more foreign language words than English, so quantity shouldn’t be a problem. Finding quality entries, however, might be an issue, especially because of our requirement of at least one citation. My hope is that this project will encourage people to improve FL entries, but having the same FWOTD for a whole week won’t help as much. — Ungoliant (Falai) 20:20, 6 August 2012 (UTC)

tally[edit]

With four proposals being voted on, it's somewhat hard to keep track of what's going on, so:

Please add votes (or update) as they are placed (or changed). Obviously, the vote page itself counts if there's any discrepancy from this table.

Maybe we should split conlangs on the table into a 'Mainspace conlangs' and an 'Appendix conlangs'? --Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 23:48, 23 August 2012 (UTC)

meeting CFI[edit]

Some voters have said they support inclusion of words that satisfy the CFI. As these words are being taken from Wiktionary, I think we can assume that all voters intended that the words would need to satisfy the CFI (plus the other requirements mentioned in the vote proposal, such as that we actually have a citation for the term). Right?​—msh210 (talk) 19:57, 23 August 2012 (UTC)

I think that means "as opposed to being in the appendix". --Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 23:48, 23 August 2012 (UTC)
