Hi. I see that you're creating stub entries in a wide variety of languages with none of the usually required information, like gender. This suggests to me that you don't actually speak any of these languages. Please stop doing this, because it is very easy to create errors unknowingly in languages you are unfamiliar with. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 18:57, 18 March 2017 (UTC)
- Thanks. I'll stick to Swedish! --G23r0f0i (talk) 18:58, 18 March 2017 (UTC)
- Okay, thank you. You can look at existing Swedish entries to get an idea of how to format them, or ask if you need help. I've attached the standard welcome message below.
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.
- Hello, this is just to say that your Danish entries seem fine.__Gamren (talk) 19:51, 21 March 2017 (UTC)
- I just wanted to note that I'm surprised how I still get initially tricked. But I never liked how you would make entries in lots of languages. Tbot was bad enough, we don't need more of that. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 19:36, 26 March 2017 (UTC)
- Don't worry about it too much, MK. --G23r0f0i (talk) 16:42, 16 April 2017 (UTC)
