I suspect that you meant your addition to be at Jóna. SemperBlotto (talk) 09:15, 2 January 2014 (UTC)

Hi, yes that is correct. Should I have started a new page with Jóna instead? I have done the same with the Faroese female names Vár and Alda, the pages already excisted but not with capital letter, because the name Vár is the same as the word for Spring in Faroese and Alda is the same as the word for wave in Faroese.

  • Yes. The capitalised forms should have their own entry. I have created Jóna for you. Note the use of the {{also}} template to disambiguate between very similar terms, and the {{head}} template to generate the correct category. SemperBlotto (talk) 09:26, 2 January 2014 (UTC)
Ok, yes I will do that, I have created Vár with capital letter and will do the same for Alda. EileenSanda (talk) 09:35, 2 January 2014 (UTC)
See the changes I made to Vár.
Ok, thanks, I didn't know how to do thos templates, I just copied from another Farose name and though that it was done in the correct way. I will use that template from now on. EileenSanda (talk) 09:59, 2 January 2014 (UTC)

You might as well have a copy of our welcome templates - lots to read there. SemperBlotto (talk) 09:38, 2 January 2014 (UTC)


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.

Again, welcome!
