I created a Wiktionary account in October 2006. I am a frequent contributor and an administrator at the English Wikipedia, and can best be contacted on my English Wikipedia user talk page.

- Now with a little more detail... The "new" transwiki process is to use Special:Import to extract the complete edit history along with the entry, to comply better/properly with the GFDL. See import log. As "articles" from Wikipedia become "entries" at Wiktionary, they first are imported into the Transwiki: namespace, with the Wikipedia capitalization. Then they are moved to the main namespace and cleaned up (or cleaned up, then moved.) Great care should be taken not to move entries into the main namespace that do not meet WT:CFI. Formatting should follow WT:ELE. --Connel MacKenzie 06:29, 26 October 2006 (UTC)
