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.

The definitions you added are not proper nouns, but just nouns, and should be under a separate part of speech header ===Noun===. A proper noun refers to a specific (and usually unique) entity. A noun that refers to a member of a group or class of similar objects is not a proper noun, even if it is capitalized. --EncycloPetey 00:31, 7 September 2009 (UTC)
- I've moved the "Noun" senses to a separate section, but the definitions do not make clear the distinction. --EncycloPetey 00:49, 7 September 2009 (UTC)
Please put your comment under WT:RFD#ploughing rather than starting your own subsection. Also, no offense intended, but I'm not sure we need input from weak English speakers - I say that having cleaned up several of your Walloon entries. Mglovesfun (talk) 12:58, 14 January 2011 (UTC)
I just wanted to say hello!
I have read a bit about Wallonia in history books, but was never sure if the language was separate from French, so I'm glad to see you are adding words.
I looked around Wiktionary a little, and found that we don't have much for Walloon, as I'm sure you know. In particular, we are missing an "about" page. On the English Wiktionary, each language has an "about" page. You can see them by searching for: WT:About XXX, but there is no WT:About Walloon page.
Here are a couple of pages you might be interested in:
On the English Wiktionary, we recently started a new project for languages with limited documentation. It is at WT:LDL.
- Or better yet, if you want, here's Category:Walloon headword-line templates. --Lo Ximiendo (talk) 01:07, 11 August 2012 (UTC)
