Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary

Welcome (back) to Wiktionary! One of the administrators, Metaknowledge noticed you have been adding Wolof words and we're really excited about it.

To help you get oriented on Wiktionary, I would like to offer to be a mentor if you are interested. That would basically just mean I would review the edits you make and give you an open invitation to ask any questions that you might have.

Here are some links that you might find useful:

  • How to edit a page has some basics that are probably not of interest to you, but FWIW. Feel free to practice in the sandbox.
  • There is also a short tutorial and a link guide.
  • 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 do this is to copy exactly an existing page for a similar word.
  • Our Criteria for inclusion (CFI) define exactly which words Wiktionary is interested in including. There is also a list of things that Wiktionary is not for a higher level overview.
  • If you already have some experience with editing our sister project Wikipedia, then you may find our guide to 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.
  • We have discussion rooms in which you can ask any question about Wiktionary or its entries, a glossary of our technical jargon, and some hints for dealing with the more common communication issues.

Finally, there is a vote in progress right now that looks like it will pass, and if so, it will change the rules for Wolof so that a special template will be needed for words. The template can be used by typing {{LDL}}after the definitions of a word.

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.
