Non-existent sections[edit]

Not sure if this is because you're a Wikipedia editor, but links to non-existent sections in an existing entry are fine, as long as the links are valid. Something like pedagogue#Old French is effectively the same as pedagogue as a valid red link, except the links isn't red because it has other languages on it.

I rolled back your edit here. Firstly, it doesn't mean ‘teacher’ anymore (admittedly it used to; you need to mark this as obsolete though). Secondly ‘Derived terms’ is for words in the same language. If you want to link to other languages which have borrowed the word you can use a ‘Descendants’ header. Cheers, Ƿidsiþ 05:26, 1 April 2013 (UTC)


If I call someone a creeper, I mean they are "a creepy person". I don't mean they are "a person perceived in some situations as creepy, laying blame etc. etc." Your definition is not appropriate. Equinox 19:55, 7 April 2013 (UTC)

If we defined things like you did, we'd need to change things like brilliant from "very good" to "considered by some to be very good, but not necessarily by everyone" and so on. Mglovesfun (talk) 20:03, 7 April 2013 (UTC)


Please be much more careful when editing languages you don't speak. German nouns are always capitalised, so the German entry is at Mensch. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 02:23, 25 April 2013 (UTC)
