Hello, welcome to Wiktionary, and thank you for your contribution so far. Here are a few good links for newcomers:
- How to edit a page 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.
- Entry layout explained (ELE) is a detailed policy documenting how Wiktionary pages should be formatted. All entries should conform to this standard, the easiest way to do this is to copy exactly an existing page for a similar word.
- Our Criteria for inclusion (CFI) define exactly which words Wiktionary is interested in including. There is also a list of things that Wiktionary is not for a higher level overview.
- If you already have some experience with editing our sister project Wikipedia, then you may find our guide to 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.
- We have discussion rooms in which you can ask any question about Wiktionary or its entries, a glossary of our technical jargon, and some hints for dealing with the more common communication issues.
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.
Hi again! Thanks for adding entries in Irish. Two requests: (1) under Derived terms, please only list words and idiomatic phrases that are potential dictionary entries themselves. Things like "gramadach na Sean-Ghaeilge" are non-idiomatic phrases (nothing more than the sum of their parts) that will never be dictionary entries. They're fine as usage examples, but not as derived terms. (2) Please do not add links to Irish Wiktionary unless the term actually exists there. Actually, at Wiktionary you don't have to worry about adding interwiki links at all, because bots do it automatically. Go raibh maith agat! —Angr 22:33, 12 May 2012 (UTC)
- Hi Angr! Thanks for your welcome and comment. I've already noticed your recent changes and I agree with them. Actually, I'm not quite familiar with the various types of tools, abbreviations etc. here on wiktionary yet, so I think it's good to know that someone takes a look at my edits and especially at my new pages. greets--Eusc (talk) 23:04, 12 May 2012 (UTC)
t, t+, t-
Just so you know, a robot updates these automatically after the entries in foreign language Wiktionaries have been in existence for at least a week or two. You can add them if you want, but it's completely unnecessary. Thanks! —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 17:15, 24 February 2013 (UTC)
- Thanks a lot for this useful information, Metaknowledge. It took me quite a while to check and confirm all these t,t+ and t-, now eventually knowing that I just wasted my time.--Eusc (talk) 17:26, 24 February 2013 (UTC)
