I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wiktionarian! By the way, you can sign your name on Talk (discussion) and vote pages using four tildes, like this: ~~~~, which automatically 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! — Vildricianus 16:22, 29 June 2006 (UTC)
I've fixed it. You may find many more malicious redirects from uppercase to lowercase articles, leaving no room for German entries. Please be bold and correct them like I did here. Cheers. — Vildricianus 16:32, 29 June 2006 (UTC)
- Thank you. :o) I will mostly insert German words that are a little bit colloquial (as Abort in the "toilet"-meaning). Grtx, --Thogo (talk) 17:58, 29 June 2006 (UTC)
Thank you for signaling your confidence in my ability to act as a CheckUser for the English Wiktionary. Your vote means a lot to me. I deeply appreciate it.
You may not be aware, but the Meta: policy dictates that there must be multiple CheckUsers on any given project, or else none will be granted. Each must get 25 votes on their local wiki, as per Meta: policy, to be granted the CheckUser privilege.
I'd like to take a moment to endorse my friends and co-runners. Each of them offers different skills that, as a whole, complement the needs of the English Wiktionary.
- User:Uncle G has been an English Wikipedia sysop longer than he's been an English Wiktionary sysop. This year (2006) he has refocused his efforts outside of Wiktionary. He was dragged away from Wiktionary while cleaning up the tens of thousands of entries on Wikipedia that linked incorrectly to Wiktionary after the case-sensitivity change in June 2005. He knows Wiktionary very well. And he is very competent at focusing his efforts wherever they are most needed. He operated the original Transwiki: bot, before we had the Special:Import feature we have now.
- User:Kipmaster is a French Wiktionnaire sysop and bot operator who is very technically capable. He also is in Europe, making his hours of availability complementary to his American counterparts. He is active in WiktionaryZ imports and understands very well which data can be imported here, from there. He normally acts as our primary liaison to fr.wiktionary, whenever compatibility issues arise.
- User:Jon Harald Søby is a steward. As a meta: steward, he is the primary person we call on to perform CheckUser checks now. His availability is often limited, but his Central European timezone proves to be very, very useful on occasion. He has contributed extensively to Wiktionary over the years.
- User:Kelly Martin was recently called in to help perform CheckUser checks on the English Wiktionary. She is currently up for election also for the Board of Trustees of Wikimedia Foundation. (In the unlikely event she wins that election, she will no longer be available to pursue her CheckUser nomination here.) Since she also has CheckUser privilege on other sister projects, she is accustomed to the 'can's and 'cannot's of CheckUser procedures, in detail.
I hope you can take a moment to consider these fine candidates again. Your support means a great deal to them, as well as to Wiktionary's ability to perform its own CheckUser checks in a timely manner.
Thank you again, for your support.

- *rofl* You have a template for that? Cool. Anyway, thank you for your message, I already voted for the others (except Uncle G who I didn't know at all, but I caught up on him a little bit and now I think he's also a good candidate). I wonder if we would like to have a CheckUser on DE-Wikt., too... Grtx, --Thogo (talk) 12:04, 20 September 2006 (UTC)
- Well, I wanted to thank everyone personally. Then my typing finger just kindof wouldn't stop. :-) Thanks again! --Connel MacKenzie 21:05, 20 September 2006 (UTC)
