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 on Wiktionary's page formatting; all entries must conform to it. The easiest way to start off is to copy the contents of an existing same-language entry, and then adapt it to fit the entry you are creating.
  • Check out Language considerations to find out more about how to edit for a particular language.
  • Our Criteria for Inclusion (CFI) defines exactly which words can be added to Wiktionary; 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.
  • If you have any questions, bring them to Wiktionary:Information desk or ask me on my talk page.
  • Whenever commenting on any discussion page, please sign your posts with four tildes (~~~~) which automatically produces your username and timestamp.
  • You are encouraged to add a BabelBox to your userpage to indicate your self-assessed knowledge of languages.

To-do list[edit]

I just had a basic crack at some of your list. Feel free to improve:

Excellent job, especially finding quotes for ‘ozzie’. Thanks! Overlordnat1 (talk) 21:34, 15 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Re "not much in it": is this the same "in" as "there might be something in that" (i.e. good idea)? Thus should be covered at "in" somehow? Equinox 10:34, 1 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
That’s an interesting take on things. I was thinking about using ‘in it’ to refer to a difference in time or distance, such as ‘I nearly travelled as far as I did last time but there’s not much in it’ or ‘I nearly went as quickly as last time but there’s not much in it’ but if we take it to mean that the distance is unimportant then I suppose it is the same sense, as ‘there’s something in it’ means ‘there’s something important in it’. On the other hand you could replace ‘it’ with something like ‘what he’s saying’ in the sentence ‘there’s something in it’ but what could you replace ‘it’ with in the phrase ‘there’s not much in it’? ‘not much in it’ and ‘something in it’ both feel idiomatic rather than SOP to me but perhaps they could be dealt with by adding to the in or in it entries?

Admin powers[edit]

Hey. Would you like to get admin powers? I can set up a vote for you GreyishWorm (talk) 12:01, 17 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It would be an honour to get such a promotion, as it were. If I did become an administrator, I’d behave consensually and responsibly. I hereby accept your offer. Overlordnat1 (talk) 12:16, 17 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Awesome. Please accept at Wiktionary:Votes/sy-2022-11/User:Overlordnat1 for admin GreyishWorm (talk) 13:56, 17 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Ah well, you probably won't quite make it. I'll do another nomination in a year or so (under a different username, naturally) Flackofnubs (talk) 12:25, 16 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Can you change the first ===Etymology=== to ===Etymology 1=== and "nest" everything inside both etymology sections accordingly? Thanks! Amusingly, I noticed this not by seeing your edit, but by happening to be going through a semi-regular WT:TODO check for instances of "Etymology 2" without a preceding "Etymology 1", ha. - -sche (discuss) 18:59, 31 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

-sche Done (I think). --Overlordnat1 (talk) 20:43, 31 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
