Archive for 2005[edit]


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! By the way, you can sign your name on Talk and vote pages using three tildes, like this: ~~~. Four tildes (~~~~) produces your name and the current date. If you have any questions, see the help pages, add a question to the beer parlour or ask me on my Talk page. Again, welcome! --Connel MacKenzie 10:01, 3 September 2005 (UTC)


Saltmarsh, If you get this note soon, please go to this page and join us in wishing SemperBlotto a happy birthday. Thanks. --Dvortygirl 05:41, 7 December 2005 (UTC)


Saltmarsh, I see you are uploading. Please consider uploading images to Commons, instead. That way, all wiki projects can use them. Let me know if you want help. --Dvortygirl 06:38, 10 December 2005 (UTC)

In answer to your questions:
1. How do I list a file on Wiktionary for deletion, I HAVE looked in help! I did it a while ago on Wikipedia is it the same here?
  • Put {{rfd}} or {{delete}} in the page and list it on WT:RFD with a reason. Not all our help here is entirely complete. I'll try to go update that soon, or you are welcome to do it. As a relatively new user, you'll notice shortcomings in help better than those who could correct them, so please don't hesitate to bring them to my attention or list them in the Beer Parlour.
2. Can the files have the same name? Will the system when looking for a file default first to Wiktionary and then to Commons.
  • I think that's okay. If you'd like me to delete the handful that you've uploaded, I'd be happy to. Wiktionary hasn't quite agreed to turn off image uploads, but we've discussed it. Commons is equipped for images, including putting the license right in the form, and so much of what gets uploaded here is rubbish.
Also, yes, talk pages are the right way to reply, and it's usually best to reply on the other person's talk page so the notification appears for them. We also have an IRC channel where I can be reached most of the time, if you are so inclined.
Oh, and thank you for all your Greek contributions, and everything else. You're doing a great job. --Dvortygirl 07:26, 10 December 2005 (UTC)

Okay, I just updated this help page with how to list a problem article. I welcome your feedback on it, or any other unhelpful help you encounter. Someday, in my free (hah!) time, I may go through and review the help in general, but in the meantime, if you see troublespots that could use particular attention, I'll certainly try to improve matters. --Dvortygirl 07:24, 17 December 2005 (UTC)
