Adding MS link[edit]

Hi, I was just wondering why you removed MS link in opera article. Thanks - Jay 15:55, 18 January 2008 (UTC)

It was going to the wrong page. Unlike Wikipedia, we use case-sensitive page names, so our opera should link only to ms:opera, not ms:Opera.
Actually there's now a bot that should clean all this stuff up, I shouldn't be bothering... Cynewulf 21:16, 18 January 2008 (UTC)

IPA for English r[edit]

Sorry to bother you. The text to this vote has been modified. Please reaffirm your support here or by resigning. DAVilla 17:23, 27 January 2008 (UTC)[edit]

Can you tell me why you undid my Japanese additions to the word final? I spent a lot of time trying to get the format correct. I did not see any comments on why you thought my additions incorrect. I did not have a Wictionary account when I did those additions, but my understanding is that this is an open dictionary. TIA. Wakablogger

As SB has already said, "final" is not a Japanese word. Cynewulf 17:29, 23 February 2008 (UTC)

実 さね/実態[edit]

My apologies; I had searched in only english dictionaries or japanese-to-english dictionaries. 4RM0 01:29, 29 February 2008 (UTC)

Ah, alrighty then. Thanks for the info. I myself use macrons when writing in roumaji (ugh), but not always when typing. —This unsigned comment was added by 4RM0 (talkcontribs).

one man and a dog[edit]

Morning, Cynewulf You are the last recorded user on a Wiki Dictionary entry called 'One Man and a Dog'. I only found this, by chance, the other week.

This refers to a cartoon strip in the Computer Press during the 1980s. I was interested because (while I did not write the original Wiki entry) I was the writer-artist behind that cartoon strip!

The entry seems to have been deleted, so I calculate that I was lucky to see this. Please can you offer any further help? (Please copy to e-mail [redacted])

Best wishes David Robinson

The dictionary entry is still here. If you mean the wikipedia entry, that has apparently been deleted, but I'm not involved with them. I'm not sure what I could do that would be helpful. Cynewulf 15:38, 29 February 2008 (UTC)

not counted[edit]

I'm just about to re-run the list from XML of a few hours ago; you might have to re-remove things done since then? (~0900 UTC) Robert Ullmann 15:32, 3 March 2008 (UTC)

OK, no problem Cynewulf 15:34, 3 March 2008 (UTC)


Please look again at the discussion you made vanish: [1]

House, Hekaheka and I are not "one person", nor is one person listing, one person saying it's not good enough and another agreeing "unsupported disagreement". You're the one who is making unsupported assertions. If you want a definition to stay on Wiktionary, you need citations that support it. Revert warring over it is not acceptable. Cynewulf 01:35, 10 March 2008 (UTC)

Dude, seriously. YOU look again. I was miles away from the text you just accused me of making "vanish". I don't know what the balls you are talking about. I did make an edit to a retarded block of text added to the democracy talk page [2] -- I made nothing else vanish. And one edit is a revert war? When you come in swinging with such a blatant ignorance of the actual reality of edits, it makes it hard to address you seriously. Regarding the edit I did make to the talk page, it was correcting a careless contributor who appended the text he had just expunged from the entry on the top of an unrelated previous RFV archive. A) The /nowiki format he used was retarded. B) it was appended to an unrelated RFV. C) The more recent RFV that concerns this text was certainly inconclusive at best. In that light, I did restore the appropriate sense the contributor deleted from the entry. In your own words, "talking about democracy as a state of the human spirit makes me think there is some other sense here..." demonstrate a need for a sense of this nature AS WELL AS ITS PRESENCE IN NEARLY EVERY OTHER DICTIONARY. If you want it rewritten, or want better cites (than the current ones, which DO demonstrate the sense), then just do it. -- Thisis0 02:27, 10 March 2008 (UTC)

Surnames and hhira[edit]

Very belated thanks for adding the hhira param to the various Japanese templates. I just created 麻生 and wanted to use the ja-pos|k|proper... template. However, it does not yet seem to accept hhira. May I ask that you add it? Thank you. Regards, Bendono 00:21, 2 November 2008 (UTC)


I do not want to come across as contumelious but please consider casting your vote for the tile logo as—besides using English—the book logo has a clear directionality of horizontal left-to-right, starkly contrasting with Arabic and Chinese, two of the six official UN languages. As such, the tile logo is the only translingual choice left and it was also elected in m:Wiktionary/logo/archive-vote-4.
