I found some words for you[edit]

Here. I created mesè and I don't like redlinks in the def line. Ultimateria (talk) 05:31, 12 September 2020 (UTC)

Hi! So what does it mean? Not Mesene? Equinox 05:45, 12 September 2020 (UTC)
Apparently mesene, having a facial index of 50.0 to 54.9 according to the link. Very strangely not the same numbers given at Ultimateria (talk) 06:40, 12 September 2020 (UTC)
Oh, cool, it's like the day I discovered a billion adjectives for soil science. Guess I'll put it on my word list on my user page. I would suggest that you go digging to see if there are large sets of words in this area (obviously this one is meso-). best wishes, Equinox 06:48, 12 September 2020 (UTC)
The potential pages I see are facial index; euryene, mesene, leptene, euryprosopia, mesoprosopia, leptoprosopia, euryprosopic / europrosopic, mesoprosopic, leptoprosopic, hypereuryprosopic, hyperleptoprosopic, prosopic; cranial index / cephalic index / breadth index; comparative anthropology. There are different measurements for skulls vs. living people's heads, but that doesn't account for the discrepancies between the two links. Ultimateria (talk) 17:49, 12 September 2020 (UTC)

I found a custom text inserter extension for Google Chrome, called Auto Text Expander for Google Chrome™[edit]

Hello. I read on User:Equinox/How_to_be_fast under the Custom text insertion section that you haven't found an extension for Google Chrome that does what you used to have on Opera: automatically inserting custom text as you have set, using special keys as you have set. The extension I have found is called Auto Text Expander for Google Chrome™. I've installed it, set some "shortcuts" as they call it, tried them on the source editor on Wiktionary and it works for me; my text is automatically replaced as I had set. I hope it works for you. --Bismabrj (talk | contribs) 10:43, 28 December 2020 (UTC)

On categorizing quotes[edit]

Hey ’Nox. Citoid has already been installed here, so you might want to use it for adding quotations: it is very easy to use for anyone who does not edit using mobile.

However, for any reasons, if you do not wish to relish this new feature, then there’s still another way to categorize quotations— just wrap the passage of the quote within {{quote}} and the page gets added to the category! See for example this entry. While adding multiple quotations, using this templet for only one of the quotations does the job.

Thus, with hardly any further effort (especially by the latter way), you would now be able to fulfill the much-needed task of categorization. Thanks for considering! inqilābī inqilāb·zinda·bād 15:09, 31 December 2020 (UTC)

@Inqilābī: You might not believe me but I genuinely avoid my talk page in sheer terror, so I haven't read this until just now, despite adding some words in the new YEAR OF OUR LORD 2021. Right now I'm too pissed to check out the above but I will make a note. Thank you for letting me know. Equinox 12:56, 9 January 2021 (UTC)

Low-content taxonomic name entries[edit]

Your taxonomic name entries have almost no usable content. Membership in a tribe or subfamily conveys little to anyone who is not a specialist who already knows many of the things missing in your creation, like vernacular name, where found, econimc or other value, what type of organism, where the name comes from, what it looks like. If you must create such low-content entries, then at least put in requests or other indications of missing content. And use families as hypernyms. That has some value to at least some non-specialists.

Below is something you could use to start an entry that might turn into something useful.

Hi Equinox. Can you explain your edit here? This change seems to give a different definition of the word. Do you have any attestations of it? Here's an attestation of the original definition: "William of Auvergne makes the active intellect of Aristotle ... to be God himself, combining this theory with the Augustinian theory of illumination, interpreted ideogenetically" (Copleston, History of Philosophy, 225).

Hi Equinox - the "become fixed" that you took out of the definition is for the case )e.g.) of a broken leg that mismends. (intransitive) Kiwima (talk) 05:00, 20 June 2021 (UTC)
