Hi HiFlyer, thanks for your contributions to Wiktionary so far.

The sections you are heading "Inflections" really ought to be headed "Related terms". The words listed there then need to be defined on their own pages. See what I have done with "misology" and "misoneism", for example. — Paul G 10:44, 28 Jan 2005 (UTC) (Wiktionary sysop)

I was highly inflected as to what to do to exactly get that right, Paul G. Thank you for the direction and, of course I will use it. "AJ" --HiFlyer 15:17, 28 Jan 2005 (UTC) (cc Paul_G)

Discussion about separate entries for gerunds, participles, etc.[edit]

Please join the discussion "Gerunds, Participles, etc." I started in the beer parlour. I'm inviting you to participate because you demanded "to give gerunds a place in our Wikitionary" when you created husking. I'm sceptical about giving gerunds serparate entries and think you should rather have included a "Verb" section in the husk entry (in which case, by the way, the definition you gave would have been appropriate). Ncik 14 Mar 2005

Changes made by you[edit]

You reformatted sentences illustrating how the words "to insinuate" and "to encompass" can be used as if they were quotations. I reverted the changes, back to what seems to be the common wiktionary format for such examples. Ncik

This is what I'm talking about:
The format I use: #:''This book on English [[:w:grammar|grammar]] '''encompasses''' all [[irregular]] verbs.''
The format you used: #*This book on English [[:w:grammar|grammar]] '''encompasses''' all [[irregular]] verbs. Also, please make sure you adapt the numbers behind translations referring to the meaning(s) of a word when adding, deleting or merging definitions of English words. Ncik


Thanks for pointing out my spelling mistake.

It now has the same spelling as on Wikipedia, with a redirect from the US spelling. SemperBlotto 22:16, 29 Jan 2005 (UTC)


flyer (person on plane, also leaflet) is queued as a request. Just thought you should know...

Well, OK. I do have the market cornered on all things 'fly' I guess. Don't hesitate to grab it yourself, Connel --AJ

Biographical entries[edit]

Hi HiFlyer,

I've removed your entry "John Dryden". Wiktionary doesn't have biographical entries. These can be added to Wikipedia instead. Thanks. — Paul G 10:16, 4 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Thanks for the info Paul. I added some to fill in Wikified links in some pages. Perhaps it is best to link directly to w:, and I will do that in the future. --HiFlyer 17:16, 5 Feb 2005 (UTC)
Thanks, HiFlyer - yes, linking to Wikipedia is the appropriate thing to do. Unfortunately there is now a fair bit of cleaning up to do, with quite a few pages linking to Shakespeare, Pope, etc. — Paul G 09:43, 7 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Webster template[edit]

Hello - I've replied to you about this on my user talk page. — Paul G 10:00, 21 Feb 2005 (UTC)

carousal carousel[edit]

A carousal is a drinking party. A carousel is a merry-go-round or that thing at airports that delivers your luggage. SemperBlotto 22:49, 10 Mar 2005 (UTC)


I have put the general formula, and the reference to hydrated carbon, in the Etymology. Techie stuff is under the chemical name sacharide and in -pedia. SemperBlotto 13:58, 11 Mar 2005 (UTC)


You keep worrying me! Whenever I see an image uploaded, I think that we are under attack again - that's always how it starts. Cheers. SemperBlotto 20:59, 17 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Good source of images[edit]

Hi there. You can find lots of images over on Wikimedia Commons. The joy is that you don't need to upload then to Wiktionary, just add a normal Image statement as if they were alread here. See Bengal tiger as an example. Keep on flying. SemperBlotto 12:45, 24 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Image:Coho salmon.jpg[edit]

Hey, where is this image from? You need a copyright statement. Wiktionary generally doesn't use fair use images, so this would have to be a public domain image to be used here. Cheers! bd2412 T 02:37, 24 March 2007 (UTC)
