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.

Again, welcome!

Are you able to read English? Mglovesfun (talk) 11:13, 2 December 2011 (UTC)
Yes. I am able to read, write and understand english :). Is there any mistake in my contributions/ procedure ? (please visit my user page: MKar for other languages). Mrutyunjaya Kar 06:52, 3 December 2011 (UTC)
Yes. You are adding bad interwiki links. All interwiki links should be the same as the page name, for example, all interwiki in the page devotion should link to a page named "devotion" on other Wiktionaries. You have added an iw link to or:ଭକ୍ତି whereas the proper link should be or:devotion (if such entry exists on Oriya Wiktionary). Maro 20:06, 3 December 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for the guidance. Mrutyunjaya Kar 08:43, 5 December 2011 (UTC)

{{list:states of India/or}}[edit]

Hello, MKar. What do you think of my creation? You can alphabetize it, if you want. --Lo Ximiendo (talk) 19:05, 16 December 2012 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done--Mrutyunjaya Kar (talk) 02:27, 17 December 2012 (UTC)
On another dish of food for thought, have you ever considered making a list template such as {{list:seasons/or}}, {{list:senses/or}}, {{list:continents/or}}, or {{list:basic colors/or}}? (Be sure to have a look at other templates if you wish to see how the hypernym parameter is used, such as {{list:continents/te}}.) --Lo Ximiendo (talk) 05:01, 17 December 2012 (UTC)
