Diego Grez Bot[edit]

Careful: Conrad.Irwin 17:46, 1 June 2010 (UTC)

I've reverted a number of similar mistakes. Conrad.Irwin 17:52, 1 June 2010 (UTC)
This edit too. The interwiki links were unnecessary, because the POV pushing page is a subdivision of WT:Vandalism in progress. The links added by the bot seemed appropriate for the latter page. The uſer hight Bogorm converſation 18:09, 1 June 2010 (UTC)
I've created the header page for that, it should be fixed now =) --Diego Grez 18:10, 1 June 2010 (UTC)
By the way, I am not at all conversant with bot settings, but could you set the bot to add links to newly created articles of sh.wikt, provided that it obtains the bot flag? The operator of the main interwiki bot (for main space) refuses based on ideological convictions. By newly created I mean in the last 1 month, because I am a steady contributor there, but there are not many more. I am simply tired of adding this fatiguing links manually. You do not have to acquiesce in this request, if it is too laborious to fulfil, The uſer hight Bogorm converſation 19:47, 1 June 2010 (UTC)
Er, Bogorm, the technical issue with Interwicket was resolved months ago, and it was never about "ideological convictions". See User_talk:Robert_Ullmann/2009#Bot_question. --Yair rand (talk) 21:12, 1 June 2010 (UTC)
This is no solution. He has discontinued the removal of links, but has not enabled his bot to add links to sh.wikt . The entries which I created on sh.wikt (in November 2009) such as sh:výťah were linked to on ko.wikt and hu.wikt (in December 2009) by CarsracBot, but it has no bot flag here and the ones I created in May 2010, are still not linked to anywhere! Discontinuing the removal does not æqual enabling the addition and that is why I am trying to recruit some bot to do this (CarsracBot has not been adding links since the beginning of 2010, I do not know for what reason). The uſer hight Bogorm converſation 21:34, 1 June 2010 (UTC)
Sorry, I wasn't aware of any of that. My mistake. --Yair rand (talk) 22:15, 1 June 2010 (UTC)
Did some more test edits, I have added many sh.w interwikis =) --Diego Grez 22:16, 1 June 2010 (UTC)
Great :) Keep up the good work. The uſer hight Bogorm converſation 11:12, 2 June 2010 (UTC)

You've been approved. Happy botting. -Atelaes λάλει ἐμοί 09:43, 19 June 2010 (UTC)

Thanks! --Diego Grez 16:21, 19 June 2010 (UTC)
Why this edit? On the one hand, Wiktionary is case-sensitive, on the other hand, the entries in other language editions of wikt must be entitled exactly the same way as here (with regard to this edit). The uſer hight Bogorm converſation 19:20, 19 June 2010 (UTC)
I'm having to undo nearly all the bot's edits. Consequently I'm blocking it until you can get the code locked down. Let me know when it is. -Atelaes λάλει ἐμοί 00:34, 20 June 2010 (UTC)
O_O Sorry!!! I'm correcting the code right now! --Diego Grez 01:40, 20 June 2010 (UTC)


Hi. What sense of crapper does cagón refer to? --Rising Sun talk? contributions 23:46, 2 June 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for noticing. After reading crapper, it doesn't means that, most likely "an undesirable person". --Diego Grez 23:47, 2 June 2010 (UTC)
OK, can I recommend shithead como translation? --Rising Sun talk? contributions 23:49, 2 June 2010 (UTC)
Aye. --Diego Grez 23:50, 2 June 2010 (UTC)

Dropping benjamins[edit]

It's a's part of the conjugation "to drop Benjamins". Dropping is a gerund; which can be a noun or adjective, but not a noun. Purplebackpack89 (Notes Taken) (Locker) 00:25, 3 June 2010 (UTC)

OK. I have moved it to drop Benjamins. --Diego Grez 00:25, 3 June 2010 (UTC)


Please add images underneath the langauge header, and not between the part of speech header and the inflection line. --EncycloPetey 16:02, 5 June 2010 (UTC)

OK. Sure. --Diego Grez 16:04, 5 June 2010 (UTC)

Also, please do not add nummbers of definitions to the image caption. The order of our definitions changes on occasion, and we have found that numbered images, translations, synonyms, etc. do not change numbers when this happens. It is better to write a caption that incorporates a portion of the definition, rather than using the definition's number. --EncycloPetey 16:06, 5 June 2010 (UTC)

Sure. Thanks for your advice. --Diego Grez 16:07, 5 June 2010 (UTC)


Sorry I missed your message. Yair posted something shortly after you did on a thread at the bottom of my talk page, and I didn't think to review my talk page's history. Bot is unblocked. -Atelaes λάλει ἐμοί 02:03, 7 July 2010 (UTC)

Thank you! :) --Diego Grez 02:07, 7 July 2010 (UTC)


Are you sure that the IPA is right? My understanding was that Spanish had neither /v/ nor /z/ (and used /b/ and /s/~/θ/ where those letters are). —Internoob (DiscCont) 22:37, 11 July 2010 (UTC)

It is pronounced the same way, and IPA is international, isn't it? :) Diego Grez 22:38, 11 July 2010 (UTC)
It's international in that one letter in the IPA represents (roughly) the same sound in one language as in another language, but the sounds themselves can vary across languages. So while in English we say /vuːvuːˈzɛlə/, in French it's /vuvuzɛla/ and in other languages it's robably different. —Internoob (DiscCont) 22:47, 11 July 2010 (UTC)
So, the Spanish pronounce it with a French pronunciation? Spanish doesn't have /v/ as a phoneme in any native words. --EncycloPetey 22:48, 11 July 2010 (UTC)
No, the French pronunciation and the listed Spanish pronunciation are different. French usually puts the stress at the end of a word ([vuvuzɛˈla], and it would be vuvuzelá in normal Spanish orthography), but stress is not phonemic so this is not indicated usually. The listed Spanish pronunciation looks like it was taken from the Portuguese. —Internoob (DiscCont) 23:06, 11 July 2010 (UTC)
Changed the IPA according to w:Wikipedia:IPA for Spanish to /bubuzela/. Diego Grez 01:03, 12 July 2010 (UTC)


Hi! I see you speak or write some mapudungun, there are not many on wiktionary with that knowledge! I worked some on adding mapudungun words last year and are adding some now again, I would be grateful if you could help me with the language since I am not very good at it -Edelstam 11:29, 15 July 2010 (UTC)
OK! I'm not very good either, but I think we can help each other, of course! :-) Diego Grez 16:35, 15 July 2010 (UTC)

Zamboanga Chavacano‎[edit]

This word is not a palindrome. Why have you added the category English palindromes? Nadando 01:30, 3 August 2010 (UTC)

Oops. Please excuse me. Diego Grez 01:35, 3 August 2010 (UTC)

Selena and Paulette[edit]

It's good to see somebody interested in names, but please, where did you find the translations for Selena and Paulette? I hope you're not blindly copying the Wikipedia, because that's the way mistakes get multiplied. Who knows if the Amharic forms are correct? It's true I sometimes add Greenlandic or Hawaiian names, but I always add good references. Also, are you sure that the transliterations refer to the English name Selena and not the Spanish name, like that of the Mexican born singer? Is Paulette really a name borne by Spanish speakers - could you add a special Spanish pronunciation? Please see Wiktionary:About given names and surnames. Actually I'd like to remove all the "translations" of Selena that are identical with the original form, unless you have a reliable source. "Old English", when the name was first recorded in the 17th century... It might be better to list cognates under Selene and Celine.

I hope I don't sound like a killjoy. Spanish given names, for example, would be very welcome, also all those pet forms that only a native speaker can understand. I'll try to create the missing categories for transliterated given names soon. --Makaokalani 12:25, 6 August 2010 (UTC)

You catched me! :-) I took the "translations" on the Wikipedia article for Selena, and used a Python transliterator to Latin to check if they were right. And yeah, will add the Spanish pronunciation for Paulette. --Diego Grez 19:00, 6 August 2010 (UTC)

Wiktionary:Deletion requests#Wikiquote[edit]

Hello. Since you participated in the deletion discussion above, I thought I might like to hear some input from you regarding this one. Thanks. TeleComNasSprVen 12:31, 26 September 2010 (UTC)

Poll on formatting of etymologies[edit]

I would like to know your preference as regards the use of "<" vs "from" in the formatting of etymologies in Wiktionary, whatever that preference is. Even explicit statement of indifference would be nice. You can state your preference in the currently running poll: WT:BP#Poll: Etymology and the use of less-than symbol. I am sending you this notification, as you took part on some of the recent votes, so chances are you could be interested in the poll. The poll benefits from having as many participants as possible, to be as representative as possible. Feel free to ignore this notification. --Dan Polansky 10:47, 14 February 2011 (UTC)
