Personal Hero: Brewster Kahle

The state of Wiktionary when I got here: [1]

BAILIFF: Before this gracious court now appear these prisoners to answer for the multiple and grievous savageries of the species. How plead you, criminal?
DATA: If I may, Captain? Objection, your honor. In the year 2036, the new United Nations declared that no Earth citizen could be made to answer for the crimes of his race or forbears.
Q (JUDGE): Objection denied. This is a court of the year 2079, by which time more rapid progress had caused all United Earth nonsense to be abolished.

1,000 Day Plan[edit]

During the next 1,000 days, I plan to add at least one citation to an English language loan word that is derived from a Chinese character transcription system every day (if I am available). These words are so hard for English readers to interpret correctly and a wealth of examples is needed to give people the clarity they need to understand the words correctly. With this act, I hope to open up what would be specialist literature to people who can search Wiktionary. Geographyinitiative (talk) 21:27, 2 January 2021 (UTC)
