Maybe not new to wikidom, but the focus and procedures here differ considerably from Wikipedia. For example, standard format is far more important here than on WP. There are standard section headers, specific templates, and we frown on redirects. --EncycloPetey 02:02, 2 January 2008 (UTC)
It is now :) See WT:ELE for the general format explanation, or refer to a model page like listen, hinder, or parrot to see how things are done. I did make two adjectments: (1) the {{en-verb}} template adds the grammar category automatically, so you don't need to add a category line when the template is used, (2) the e drops out of the past and participles, so I adjusted the template coding slightly. --EncycloPetey 02:08, 2 January 2008 (UTC)
