Hello[edit]

Hello, Rfc1394, and thank you for your efforts here. Could I get you to take a look at get away with and see how I have formatted it? It would save us some cleanup if you would kindly put ==English== and ===Verb=== or another appropriate part of speech at the top of the article. Please see WT:ELE for further details and don't hesitate to ask me if you need any help. Many thanks. --Dvortygirl 29 June 2005 17:16 (UTC)

Rankings[edit]

Hi there. Could you wait a little while before proceeding with adding these rankings? I don't think everybody likes it. (See Beer parlour). — Vildricianus 20:55, 24 April 2006 (UTC)

Ranking ideas[edit]

Hello,

I got a significant amount of negative response to my GutenBot ranking additions. The main complaint was that it needs to be moved to the end of the English section, under a ====Trivia==== heading or something like that. I haven't revisited that ranking project since getting those comments. I'm still unsure what the best approach would be. But adding the TV rankings seems to be only encouraging more negative comments regarding all ranking information in entries.

I'm preparing to remove all references to {{rank}} soon, and start fresh. I thought previously that I'd be able to just edit them once with the reformatting. But many individual entries have been changed in subtle ways, so I'm leaning towards just removing them all and starting over. Where do you think, within an entry, the rankings belong? Do you think it is a good idea to have the prev/next terms also included? It seemed reasonable to me at first, but that too has had complaints. (Lexically, the prev/next terms are completely unrelated.) --Connel MacKenzie T C 20:55, 27 April 2006 (UTC)

Entries[edit]

Thanks for your entries. Please look at WT:ELE to see how to properly format them. Yours are too long, more like Wikipedia entries. Thanks.


No redirects, please[edit]

Hi, thanks for your contributions. I'd like to note that each spelling gets its own page on Wiktionary. As we are not Wikipedia, please do not create "hard" redirects in the main namespace. Instead, an entry such as telephone pole would get its own page, possibly with a very simple definition linking to another page. Thanks again! DAVilla 21:45, 1 December 2007 (UTC)

Well I lied. the Windy City‎ would not get its own page, but the redirect isn't strictly necessary either. DAVilla 21:50, 1 December 2007 (UTC)

easy[edit]

The Related terms section is reserved solely for etymologyically related items, not synonyms (nor the word itself). -Atelaes λάλει ἐμοί 01:25, 24 September 2008 (UTC)

Template:fast and easy[edit]

Is this the kind of thing that should be put into Wikisaurus, not into the entries? It seems a bit limited in scope to just deal with two words when there are very many similar, up for it/gagging for it spring to mind, then there are randy horny etc. it would seem to make more sense to put the usage notes somewhere common to all of the words, such as a Wikisaurus entry. Any thoughts? Conrad.Irwin 12:43, 27 September 2008 (UTC)

Hey, I'm easy on it. (Pun intentional.) I mean, I want to try to convey the nuance involved; there is a difference between the two words in the usage here even if I can't quite put my finger on it. Personally I think they are both perjorative, but then again I don't fear women's sexuality or consider it wrong if women act the way men do. And that may be part of the issue.

Redirects[edit]

Another reminder that we do not redirect here, especially not different grammatical forms. For example, past tense forms of verbs and expressions have their own entries, not a redirect. --EncycloPetey 20:13, 25 April 2010 (UTC)

Recent edits shack up[edit]

Note the changes I made to what you wrote at shack up. Information of that kind is usually expressed using context labels. You don't need that information on the form-of pages (shacking up, etc.) because it's already on the lemma page. Happy editing, —Internoob (DiscCont) 03:19, 27 May 2010 (UTC)

Entries[edit]

Could you please format your entries, you're creating them faster than I can format them, so if you format them yourself, I can get on with something else. Thanks, Mglovesfun (talk) 11:44, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

anticlockwise[edit]

Hi. Could you explain how your newly-added sense differs from the existing one? "Positioned as such that..." doesn't seem to be proper grammar so I can't really work out what is intended. Equinox 11:14, 6 July 2013 (UTC)

Okay, so there are not two separate meanings, but it is another way of describing the same thing. I have attempted to handle it by adding "(when viewed from the front)" to the main definition. Equinox 12:40, 6 July 2013 (UTC)

(numerals)[edit]

Hi. I moved (numerals) to User:Rfc1394/(numerals). The main namespace is only for words in languages. — Ungoliant (falai) 19:59, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
