Hello, and welcome to Wiktionary! We notice that you're making changes anonymously. Although this is perfectly all right, we'd like to encourage you to take the time to create an account and sign in to it when editing – it's free and easy. A number of good reasons to do so are listed at Wiktionary:Why create an account?.

Please note that we are not Wikipedia. If you have edited there, it won't be very difficult for you to find your way here, but there are a number of differences. For example, Wiktionary is case-sensitive: Kind (German) is not the same as kind (English, Danish, Dutch etc.) Also note that Wiktionary never uses parenthetic disambiguation, so where Wikipedia might have separate articles on Mercury (planet), Mercury (element), and Mercury (mythology), Wiktionary will only have one entry on Mercury which addresses proper noun uses, and an entry on mercury which addresses regular noun uses.

Here are a few good links for newcomers:

Questionable entries will be listed for verification, and, if they fail that process, will be deleted. Also, keep in mind our copyright policies: don't copy material from copyrighted sources here. Such additions will be deleted on sight. Submissions from IP addresses unfortunately are looked at more closely, so please take a minute to create an account.

If you have any questions, see the help pages, add a question in the appropriate discussion room or ask me on my talk page.

Enjoy your stay at Wiktionary! --Vahagn Petrosyan 20:34, 19 May 2010 (UTC)

Languages that you don't know[edit]

I think you will find that kešu orechov in Slovak is genitive plural, not the nominative singular. —Stephen 01:02, 21 May 2010 (UTC)

Please stop adding translations for languages you do not know. Doing this is unacceptable on Wiktionary. --EncycloPetey 18:51, 22 May 2010 (UTC)
Unless they're correct, right? How did you know the ones he/she added were wrong? Mglovesfun (talk) 21:04, 22 May 2010 (UTC)
I know some of those languages, and found errors. Stephen has also pointed out problems above. Regardless, if the user is adding translations for languages he/she does not speak, then the information is being obtained from some uncredited source, which is potentially at worst copy-vio and at least prone to errors. If the user does not speak those languages, he/she cannot check for errors and is blindly and indiscriminately copying information. --EncycloPetey 21:13, 22 May 2010 (UTC)
So you'd post the same of on the talk pages of Hippietrail, Opiaterein and Atitarev? Mglovesfun (talk) 21:43, 22 May 2010 (UTC)

This is the discussion page for an anonymous user who has not created an account yet or who does not use it. We therefore have to use the numerical IP address to identify him/her. Such an IP address can be shared by several users. If you are an anonymous user and feel that irrelevant comments have been directed at you, please create an account to avoid future confusion with other anonymous users.
