Note: In assembling this archive, I've reunited some conversations that were previously spread across multiple discussion pages. Comments in green (like this) are comments brought here from other users' talk-pages. (My apologies if your link colors are such that this makes links hard to read.)

Hey there. Just thought I would drop by and say that you are doing pretty good work around here. Have you considered registering an account. It is free and we would love to have you. If you have any questions, just drop my by talk page. -- Psy guy 21:23, 27 June 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for the welcome! I've created an account now. - Ruakh, previously 129.22.21.59
Awesome! Welcome aboard. -- Psy guy 19:41, 5 July 2006 (UTC)

Welcome[edit]

(I'm not sure how you made it this long without being welcomed, but here is one...) Welcome!

Hello, and welcome to Wiktionary. Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are a few good links for newcomers:


I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wiktionarian!

Thanks for the welcome! I was starting to wonder if maybe Wiktionary wasn't as friendly as Wikipedia. :-) Ruakh 00:28, 20 October 2006 (UTC)
It's not that we're less friendly (to the contrary, I've met some of the friendliest people I know here, and it's a smaller, more intimate community). Because we're smaller, though, we're not quite as well "staffed" with folks welcoming newcomers, and it's a bit hit or miss. Please don't take it personally. —Dvortygirl 03:06, 20 October 2006 (UTC)
Don't worry, I really wasn't being serious. All's good. :-) Ruakh 03:22, 20 October 2006 (UTC)

Hebrew help[edit]

Hello, could you check the Hebrew translation(s) for the word listen, and make sure they are listed in the correct section? Thanks, --EncycloPetey 02:47, 4 December 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for adding the Hebrew, but did you notice that the translations are separated by sense? Did you intend to put both translations under the same meaning? --EncycloPetey 03:39, 5 December 2006 (UTC)
Yeah, I noticed. [hik'ʃiv] and [ʔi'zɛn] are almost completely synonymous; the second is a bit more formal, and has a slight connotation of listening to speech specifically rather than to sound generally, but the two are fairly interchangeable. Ruakh 17:48, 6 December 2006 (UTC)
