Hello, welcome to Wiktionary, and thank you for your contributions so far.

If you are unfamiliar with wiki editing, take a look at Help:How to edit a page. It 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.

These links may help you familiarize yourself with Wiktionary:

  • Entry layout (EL) is a detailed policy documenting how Wiktionary pages should be formatted. All entries should conform to this standard. The easiest way to start off is to copy the contents of an existing page for a similar word, and then adapt it to fit the entry you are creating.
  • Our Criteria for inclusion (CFI) define exactly which words can be added to Wiktionary, though it may be a bit technical and longwinded. The most important part is that Wiktionary only accepts words that have been in somewhat widespread use over the course of at least a year, and citations that demonstrate usage can be asked for when there is doubt.
  • If you already have some experience with editing our sister project Wikipedia, then you may find our guide for Wikipedia users useful.
  • The FAQ aims to answer most of your remaining questions, and there are several help pages that you can browse for more information.
  • A glossary of our technical jargon, and some hints for dealing with the more common communication issues.
  • If you have anything to ask about or suggest, we have several discussion rooms. Feel free to ask any other editors in person if you have any problems or question, by posting a message on their talk page.

You are encouraged to add a BabelBox to your userpage. This shows which languages you know, so other editors know which languages you'll be working on, and what they can ask you for help with.

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.

Again, welcome! --Lo Ximiendo (talk) 06:52, 3 June 2012 (UTC)

розовая слизь‎[edit]

Hi! Google hits are not considered valid/durable per WT:CFI, and 6490 is a small number anyway. The term also doesn't meet CFI as it is less than a year old. I've re-deleted it until valid, durable citations can be found. - -sche (discuss) 09:17, 12 December 2012 (UTC)

Well... I guess a few editors really can screw up a project, huh? - M0rphzone (talk) 09:19, 12 December 2012 (UTC)
By adding unattested entries made up in one day? Yeah, I guess... but the community has formed policies by consensus to stop that. :} - -sche (discuss) 09:24, 12 December 2012 (UTC)
Wow, you think I'm referring to myself? How conceited. I'm talking about you and some other editors. I know the policies, so don't go dropping WT:Links everywhere, but you can read this as well. I wouldn't just create random BS entries, but apparently a certain few admins think their opinions serve as "consensus" and are representative of the entire community. - M0rphzone (talk) 22:23, 16 December 2012 (UTC)
I participated in that discussion you link to.
I apologise for my snappy response on the 12th; I knew what you were insinuating, but wasn't in the mood for complaints that community attestation rules were 'screwing up the project'.
If you want Russian to be exempt from en.Wiktionary's Criteria for Inclusion, I encourage you to start a vote. Many proposals to modify CFI have succeeded in the past. Right now, though, Russian is bound by the same CFI as other major languages with large amounts of documentation available online: the same CFI which have been confirmed by consensus demonstrated through multiple votes. Your opinion of what CFI should be is shared by Stephen and Anatoli, but until it's shared by a majority of en.Wiktionary editors, you're bound to play by the same rules as everyone else. Ivan was unhappy when Ruakh deleted one of his unattested English terms following consensus that it failed RFV, Purplebackpack is unhappy when SOP terms are deleted following consensus at RFD, and I was unhappy when one COALMINE term was deleted by Liliana while others were kept following RFDs: I don't always agree with the community. However, as I told Stephen, I recognise when I'm outvoted. Again, I encourage you to start a vote if you want to change CFI here — or to edit other Wiktionaries, which set their own rules — but as long as the current CFI apply, we're all bound not to recreate entries which don't meet them. - -sche (discuss) 23:20, 16 December 2012 (UTC)
What makes you think I'm "complaining" about only Russian entries? CFI needs to be revised, but I'm not going to bring it up since I'll just be outvoted as being irrelevant/unimportant. - M0rphzone (talk) 23:58, 16 December 2012 (UTC)


Please do not undo/revert others' edits because they are "unsourced". Most material here is unsourced, due to the nature of the project and its immense data-to-editor ratio. If you believe that somethign may be inaccurate and you have knowledge about it, you can change it. If you doubt that something is accurate, you can take it to a page like WT:RFV or discuss it with knowledgeable editors on their talkpages. However, please don't simply blindly revert.
