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.
This discussion is no longer live and is left here as an archive. Please do not modify this conversation, but feel free to discuss its conclusions.
The IP doesn't geolocate to Indonesia, but everything else points to blocked Indonesian editor Willy2000. They've been adding translations and creating entries in an implausibly broad assortment of European and Southeast Asian languages, with many of the European entries lacking basic information such as gender that a fluent speaker would presumably know. I speedied a Russian entry that had no Google Books hits, but there's enough evidence for some of the others that I don't want to risk meddling in languages I don't know without more to go on than a hunch.

- Definitely Willy. I think we can trust that the Indonesian-Malay ones are fine and mark those as patrolled, but the rest is questionable. @Atitarev, there's a lot of Slavic ones — could you please check and fix the Russian and Ukrainian ones, and any others that you can check as well? Thank you! —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 20:59, 25 March 2017 (UTC)
- I think we can also add Special:Contributions/Anth2943 to this. The overlap in timing of edits can be explained by assuming they were using two browsers at the same time, but logged in on only one. Chuck Entz (talk) 02:33, 26 March 2017 (UTC)
