Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary

Hello, welcome to Wiktionary, and thank you for your contributions so far.

If you are unfamiliar with wiki editing, take a look at Help:How to edit a page. It is a concise list of technical guidelines to the wiki format we use here: how to, for example, make text boldfaced or create hyperlinks. Feel free to practice in the sandbox. If you would like a slower introduction we have a short tutorial.

These links may help you familiarize yourself with Wiktionary:

  • Entry layout (EL) is a detailed policy documenting how Wiktionary pages should be formatted. All entries should conform to this standard. The easiest way to start off is to copy the contents of an existing page for a similar word, and then adapt it to fit the entry you are creating.
  • Our Criteria for inclusion (CFI) define exactly which words can be added to Wiktionary, though it may be a bit technical and longwinded. The most important part is that Wiktionary only accepts words that have been in somewhat widespread use over the course of at least a year, and citations that demonstrate usage can be asked for when there is doubt.
  • If you already have some experience with editing our sister project Wikipedia, then you may find our guide for 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.
  • A glossary of our technical jargon, and some hints for dealing with the more common communication issues.
  • If you have anything to ask about or suggest, we have several discussion rooms. Feel free to ask any other editors in person if you have any problems or question, by posting a message on their talk page.

You are encouraged to add a BabelBox to your userpage. This shows which languages you know, so other editors know which languages you'll be working on, and what they can ask you for help with.

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.

Again, welcome!


We appreciate your help. You might be interested in looking at Category:Khmer language. —Stephen (Talk) 13:36, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

  • Hi Stephen, thanks for your greeting! I'm new to Wiktionary. I'm one of the Admin team at Khmer Wikipedia. Besides Khmer Wikipedia, we also have 3 other sister projects such as Wiktionary, Wikibooks and Wikisource.
    I'm here in order to broaden my knowledge and get familiar with Wiktionary, so I can apply for a SysOp status in other Khmer projects and contribute more. Thank you! --វ័ណថារិទ្ធ 14:38, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
    • Very good. Let me know if you have any questions. —Stephen (Talk) 15:14, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

Admin status[edit]

Hi, Vantharith. I can nominate you for admin status here, but I think you should first make some edits so that the other admins can evaluate your work. If you will first make 50 edits or more (new entries, correcting old entries, improving old entries, etc.), then I can nominate you. —Stephen (Talk) 05:35, 21 February 2011 (UTC)

So far, I've made almost 300 edits in Khmer Wiktionary - currently, there's no SysOp over there. For English version - I don't think I need a sysop status for now. Cos I'm still learning as an ordinary registered user. But will let you know once I feel I'm ready to be a sysop in the English Wiktionary - so then I will be able to contribute even in greater capacity in Khmer Wiktionary. Thank you. --វ័ណថារិទ្ធ (Vantharith) 12:21, 21 February 2011 (UTC)
Oh, did you mean admin status on Khmer Wikipedia? For that, see w:Wikipedia:Guide to requests for adminship. See also km:w:ពិសេស:បញ្ជីឈ្មោះអ្នកប្រើប្រាស់/sysop for a list of Khmer admins, and km:w:វិគីភីឌា:អ្នកអភិបាល. —Stephen (Talk) 12:31, 21 February 2011 (UTC)
No - I meant the Khmer Wiktionary, NOT Wikipedia. I am already one of the sysop member in Khmer Wikipedia. But there is no sysop for Khmer Wiktionary.--វ័ណថារិទ្ធ (Vantharith) 12:37, 21 February 2011 (UTC)
Oh, now I see. You might go to km:ពិសេស:GlobalUsers/sysadmin and contact User:ArielGlenn. Also, I think that User talk:Prince Kassad may know something about applying for admin status on Khmer Wiktionary. —Stephen (Talk) 13:09, 21 February 2011 (UTC)


I can see that you were trying to copy over from {{en-adj}}, however this isn't really appropriate as Khmer and English are very different; you removed the script support and the bit where the transliteration can go. Mglovesfun (talk) 20:39, 6 March 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for dropping by and for your comment! Yes, you're right - I was figuring out for some long time - but still can't make it properly. Anyway, will be more careful next time. ^^ Thanks, --វ័ណថារិទ្ធ (Vantharith) 17:03, 7 March 2011 (UTC)

Khmer Wikt[edit]

Hi, Vantharith. I am surprised that you had trouble getting adminship at Khmer Wikt. What happened about it, what was the reason for denying? Did you contact ArielGlenn? He is Greek but he speaks good English. As soon as I have some time, I will nominate you for admin. —Stephen (Talk) 02:24, 11 March 2011 (UTC)

Hi Stephen! I didn't contact anyone. I was seeking help from IRC chatroom and asked question on how to request for adminship. I got some advices - so first I made a project page for the Admin Request and wrote my name there for local election. Then, I applied on the meta site. But my case was rejected. I think, maybe it's not yet time. But will wait to hear good news from you if I can be an admin for EN project here. ^^ Regards,--វ័ណថារិទ្ធ (Vantharith) 02:44, 11 March 2011 (UTC)
Where on the meta site? It sounds to me like there was a misunderstanding of some kind. It is always the right time, and it is important to have an admin there. One point: I think you should have the local election at km:Wiktionary:​ផតថលសហគមន៍, or at least put an announcement at km:Wiktionary:​ផតថលសហគមន៍ that tells where the election is located. But there are numerous wikis that suffer from low activity, and this makes a problem for elections. I am an admin on the Navajo Wikipedia. When we have elections, we can get only 2 votes. But it is a known problem, so it is enough. I am re-elected every 6 months, always with only 2 votes. —Stephen (Talk) 04:36, 11 March 2011 (UTC)
Here you are, the link to meta - - it's been removed already. I did include everything and mentioned about no admin and low activity... Ok, here's the link to local election -សុំជាអ្នកគ្រប់គ្រង You can have a try if you can help me fighting this case ^^ Wait to hear good news from you! Thanks,--វ័ណថារិទ្ធ (Vantharith) 15:00, 11 March 2011 (UTC)
It was a shortsighted decision! I think you should place the election page again, at km:Wiktionary:​ផតថលសហគមន៍, indicating the start-date and the stop-date (2 weeks later). When the election starts, tell me and I will vote for you. If you know anyone on the Khmer Wikipedia, they can come and vote for you as well. Anyone can vote, it does not matter if they are contributors at the Khmer Wikt or not.
After 2 weeks, we add up the votes for and against at the bottom and write down the decision of the vote (បាន​អនុម័ត). You should get at least 3 votes for, 0 against, 0 abstaining. That should be a consensus, but if you can get anyone to come and vote from Khmer Wikipedia, it will be much better. —Stephen (Talk) 15:49, 11 March 2011 (UTC)
Hi, Vantharith. I see at km:Wiktionary:សុំជាអ្នកគ្រប់គ្រង that you now have 5 votes. It seems to me that this should be enough. I think you should apply again at —Stephen (Talk) 22:56, 17 May 2011 (UTC)
Hi Stephen. Thanks for your note. Just a few Questions - 1) do i need to conclude the consensus on kmwikt page (5 voices vs. 0)? 2) can i edit the old (closed) request or have to create new one? Thanks,--វ័ណថារិទ្ធ (Vantharith) 09:44, 18 May 2011 (UTC)
I don’t have a lot of experience with this. On the Navajo wiki, we elected our admins with only 3 votes (since we have only 4 people who vote there, including the 3 admins). But I do think you should conclude the consensus (5 votes for, 0 against). More importantly, do not edit the old request, create a new one. This may be a matter of who at Wikimedia considers the request ... while one steward might not understand the problems of the small wikis, a different steward might be more understanding. This is just my opinion. —Stephen (Talk) 20:23, 18 May 2011 (UTC)
Thank you, Stephen! I already did what I should do :) Let's wait and see this time... Link here to my new request. Cheers,--វ័ណថារិទ្ធ (Vantharith) 12:33, 19 May 2011 (UTC)

User boxes[edit]

Per WT:UBV user boxes are actually banned. Sorry about this, I'm sure you realize I'm going to delete them (or someone else will). Mglovesfun (talk) 17:47, 11 March 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for your notice! --វ័ណថារិទ្ធ (Vantharith) 06:49, 23 April 2011 (UTC)


Congratulations, you are now the sysop of the Khmer Wiktionary. This is effective for a period of 6 months. In 6 months, you will need to apply again (ខែវិច្ឆិកា). It should be much easier next time, since you will have a history there. —Stephen (Talk) 04:45, 21 May 2011 (UTC)

អរគុណ Stephen ដែលបានជួយ! Thank you!--វ័ណថារិទ្ធ (Vantharith) 11:17, 7 June 2011 (UTC)

Khmer translation[edit]

Is it possible for you to translate this, or to explain the general meaning to me? Thanks --Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 03:44, 5 June 2012 (UTC)
