certified mail[edit]

Never heard of this term where I am from. Mind tagging the regions this term applies to? JamesjiaoTC 01:35, 24 June 2013 (UTC)


In diff, you have removed {{rfv-sense}} tag from senses without providing evidence that the senses are actually in use, as per WT:ATTEST. Consequently, I have undone your edit. Senses tagged with rfv-sense are going to be deleted unless somone provides evidence of their use as per WT:ATTEST, exemplified in Citations:identical. --Dan Polansky (talk) 19:22, 24 June 2013 (UTC)

A Welcome, and a Comment[edit]


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!

  • Please be careful when adding entries containing references to technology from a century-old source. No one is going to be able to decipher your definition at sepometer without having studied the history of science, for instance. A general rule of thumb: if you don't understand it, don't add it. Also, read carefully our Criteria For Inclusion: several of your earlier entries are probably going to be deleted because they're no more than the sum of their parts- if you can find out what something means by looking up the words that make it up, there's no reason to have an entry for it.

You don't need to use |head=tuunich (for example) when the head word to display is the same as the page name. The server picks it up using the 'magic word' {{PAGENAME}}. Mglovesfun (talk) 21:36, 11 August 2013 (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.
