Hello, and welcome to Wiktionary. Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are a few good links for newcomers:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wiktionarian! By the way, you can sign your name on Talk (discussion) and vote pages using four tildes, like this: ~~~~, which automatically produces your name and the current date. If you have any questions, see the help pages, add a question to one of the discussion rooms or ask me on my Talk page. Again, welcome! --EncycloPetey 01:12, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

FYI - We don't use eo-0 or other "0" language templates here, since they aren't very useful. --EncycloPetey 01:12, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

It is true that a number of those templates have been imported, but you'll find that only a very few are ever placed on aynone's user page. Most have no pages linking to them. The only user I can recall ever using them is User:Opiaterein. They're not forbidden, just not used by anyone who sticks around, which is why you got a redlink. --EncycloPetey 01:34, 25 March 2008 (UTC)
Do you have any objections to me creating the eo-0 template and category?

No. --EncycloPetey 01:45, 25 March 2008 (UTC)
P.S. I notice that we use the same way of answering, by keeping BOTH sides of the discussion in both talk pages. I find it the only sensible way to discuss ;-)
That practice varies here, by user and by specific conversation. Unlike Wikipedia, we have a small regular community, and it's possible to see everyone currently editing in the "Recent Changes" listings, because we tend to have fewer edits per minute than Wikipedia. Conversations can therefore happen quickly sometimes. --EncycloPetey 01:45, 25 March 2008 (UTC)


One more thing: You may find it useful to know about User:SemperBlotto, who is responsible for most of our Italian entries. He can help you with templates, formatting, and questions about standard practices. We do have a Wiktionary:About Italian style guide, but it includes only a little information right now, since we haven't had a lot of other contributors in Italian. I focus on English, Latin, and (sometimes) Spanish. --EncycloPetey 02:01, 25 March 2008 (UTC)
