Hello, and welcome to Wiktionary. Thank you for your contributions. 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 make a hyperlink. The Wiktionary tutorial is a more wordy, multi-page document that helps you through those same formatting issues, and also touches on a couple of other issues relevant to editing.
- The document What Wiktionary is not may be of interest. In particular, if you've edited Wikipedia in the past, you should note that Wiktionary is not an encyclopedia and does not have Wikipedia-style page titles.
- There is a technical guide to how to start a new page. But you'll also want to look at our guidelines for how to format an entry (what goes where) and our criteria for inclusion (what can be included), which are our two main policy documents. (You can get a feel for how to format an entry by looking at existing entries.)
- The sandbox is a safe place for testing markup.
- The FAQ has, of course, some frequently (and some infrequently) asked questions, and their answers.
I hope you enjoy editing here! By the way, you can sign your comments on talk (discussion) pages using four tildes, like this:
~~~~, which automatically produces your name (or IP number if you're not signed in) and the current date and time. If you have any questions, then see the help pages, add a question to one of the discussion rooms or ask me on my talk page.—msh210℠ (talk) 16:50, 23 July 2010 (UTC)
We do not list translations for non-English entries on the English Wiktionary. Translations would be placed on the entry at the Dutch Wiktionary. --EncycloPetey 23:26, 20 November 2010 (UTC)
- Also, please don't link to a word in a different language with an unrelated meaning. If we started doing that, we could allow any internal link. Mglovesfun (talk) 10:54, 21 November 2010 (UTC)
Could you add Babel templates (Wiktionary:Babel) to your user-page?
