Thanks for your contributions. I have put a comment at Talk:filk. DCDuring TALK 12:44, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

Sorry, I thought you were the one who had added the adjective section. Anyway, I would welcome your comments and especially improvements to the Noun definitions. DCDuring TALK 12:48, 18 December 2008 (UTC)


Do not make edits like this, thanks. DTLHS (talk) 23:22, 31 July 2014 (UTC)

@DTLHS: I don't log in here very often, so I just saw this note of yours. As you can see, it's rather baffling: first because you typoed "diff" as "dif", and second because you've given no reason—what was improper about those edits?
And as the history shows, User:-sche (whom I have just thanked) took the trouble to look at my change summary and reinstate my anchors, though moving them out of the headers. Thnidu (talk) 15:54, 7 September 2014 (UTC)
Sorry for the typo. HTML elements like span should not be applied in an ad-hoc manner to entries- this will just lead to inconsistencies when the Wiktionary page changes. Templates are vastly preferred. HTML should not be in the wikitext at all. DTLHS (talk) 16:01, 7 September 2014 (UTC)
@DTLHS: What template do you suggest? I'm not going to use anchor in its current condition, which it's been in for five years. See my request in the Grease Pit. I was applying my (considerable) experience on Wikipedia, where simple HTML is not deprecated and I was using span to create anchor links before I knew about the template. --Thnidu (talk) 17:04, 7 September 2014 (UTC)

IDs for definitions[edit]

Nothing wrong with it, just use the template {{senseid}} instead of adding the html code manually. — Ungoliant (falai) 00:59, 6 March 2015 (UTC)

Thank you, O Great Spider. --Thnidu (talk) 02:23, 6 March 2015 (UTC)
