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.
- 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.
Thank you very much for your additions of cy translations to the English Wiktionary! If you could, could you please make a userpage that shows which languages you know or are proficient in so that we know which languages you can help other people with if they have any questions about anything? Thanks, Razorflame 13:57, 7 January 2010 (UTC)
English proper nouns
Hi, thanks for adding Cornish entries! Please note that Translingual and English always come first on pages with multiple languages; other languages are listed alphabetically after English. So Cornish comes after English here at English-language Wiktionary, even though C comes before E in the alphabet. —Aɴɢʀ (talk) 15:09, 23 July 2014 (UTC)
On llewod you included a topical category (felids) and also copied the gender from the lemma entry. Only the lemma entry should have categories like this, and the gender should only be mentioned there as well. Non-lemma entries such as plurals should have just the minimum information needed to point the user to the lemma (though they can have mutations and pronunciations, since those are word-specific not lemma-specific). —CodeCat 13:04, 27 August 2016 (UTC)
- Thank you for clarifying that. I've amended it and will remember in future. Llusiduonbach (talk) 13:08, 27 August 2016 (UTC)
