Hello Stevey7788,

Thanks for your help this evening, during the vandalism flurry. In the future though, please do not restore the moved pages, as you were. Instead, try to move the vandalized page back to its original location. This has a better chance of retaining the edit history. Last I checked, non administrators have the ability to move a page back ("over redirect") as long as the page names match. Once there is edit history, the page must be deleted before the other page can be moved back.

Also note that you can upload a blank image overtop of a goatse upload.

Regards, --Connel MacKenzie 06:13, 19 May 2005 (UTC)


Hi there Stevey. We don't like to use templates containing ===stuff=== here as it can lead to strange edit problems. It is just as easy to type out the whole thing. SemperBlotto 07:05, 18 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Actually, somebody else created that template. Having experience on the English Wikipedia, I fully understand that it can be very confusing. Stevey7788 21:49, 28 July 2005 (UTC)


Stevey, In case you're wondering, I just deleted "nonchalence" because there is already an article under the correct spelling "nonchalance", which seems to capture all the ideas in your article. By the way, we're all curious where you're getting so many great words. Care to fill us in? --Dvortygirl 20:29, 20 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Poll on formatting of etymologies[edit]

I would like to know your preference as regards the use of "<" vs "from" in the formatting of etymologies in Wiktionary, whatever that preference is. Even explicit statement of indifference would be nice. You can state your preference in the currently running poll: WT:BP#Poll: Etymology and the use of less-than symbol. I am sending you this notification, as you took part on some of the recent votes, so chances are you could be interested in the poll. The poll benefits from having as many participants as possible, to be as representative as possible. Feel free to ignore this notification. --Dan Polansky 10:51, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

Vote on formatting of etymologies[edit]

There is the vote Wiktionary:Votes/pl-2011-02/Deprecating less-than symbol in etymologies, which would benefit from your participation, even if only in the role of an abstainer. Right now, the results of the vote do not quite mirror the results of the poll that has preceded the vote. There is a chance that the vote will not pass. The vote, which I thought would be a mere formality, has turned out to be a real issue. You have taken part on the poll that preceded the vote, which is why I have sent you this notification. --Dan Polansky 08:28, 10 March 2011 (UTC)



In case you're following your page, I wonder what's the source for the Burmese words in Appendix:Swadesh lists for Tai-Kadai languages. In particularly, the word ဢၢၼ်ႇ (ʔaan2) - to count. The online resources in Burmese are extremely scarce. My Lonely Planet phrasebook has another word, which they romanise as "yedeh", can't type in Burmese, sorry, it looks like ရေတယ်, if I entered it correctly. --Anatoli 11:18, 26 April 2011 (UTC)

Hmong Swadesh list[edit]

Since the Swadesh lists seem to be your project, just an FYI that I added IPA transcriptions to the Appendix:White Hmong Swadesh list and upgraded it to Template:Swadesh list 207 pronunciation. I have zero knowledge of Hmong and just used the chart on Wikipedia:Romanized Popular Alphabet. If anything seems amiss, feel free to edit. Gus Polly 21:18, 23 October 2011 (UTC)


Hi Stevey7788,

About a decade ago I had the pleasure to teach in south africa for a while and learn some Xhosa. I also found a partial Phuthu/Xhosa Swadesh list and an English-Xhosa online dictionary and composed a Swadesh list @nl.wikt. I don't know if it interests you, but thought I should let you know. nl:Gebruiker:Jcwf Jcwf 21:48, 19 February 2012 (UTC)
