Welcome to Wiktionary




Hello, welcome to Wiktionary, and thank you for your contributions so far.

If you are unfamiliar with wiki-editing, take a look at Help:How to edit a page. It is a concise list of technical guidelines to the wiki format we use here: how to, for example, make text boldfaced or create hyperlinks. Feel free to practice in the sandbox. If you would like a slower introduction we have a short tutorial.

These links may help you familiarize yourself with Wiktionary:

  • Entry layout (EL) is a detailed policy on Wiktionary's page formatting; all entries must conform to it. The easiest way to start off is to copy the contents of an existing same-language entry, and then adapt it to fit the entry you are creating.
  • Check out Language considerations to find out more about how to edit for a particular language.
  • Our Criteria for Inclusion (CFI) defines exactly which words can be added to Wiktionary; the most important part is that Wiktionary only accepts words that have been in somewhat widespread use over the course of at least a year, and citations that demonstrate usage can be asked for when there is doubt.
  • If you already have some experience with editing our sister project Wikipedia, then you may find our guide for Wikipedia users useful.
  • If you have any questions, bring them to Wiktionary:Information desk or ask me on my talk page.
  • Whenever commenting on any discussion page, please sign your posts with four tildes (~~~~) which automatically produces your username and timestamp.
  • You are encouraged to add a BabelBox to your userpage to indicate your self-assessed knowledge of languages.

Enjoy your stay at Wiktionary!

P.S. I added the Babel Box to your user-page. It's up to you to modify it according to what languages you know. --Lo Ximiendo (talk) 21:57, 2 January 2015 (UTC)Reply



I have reverted a few of your edits on Chinese characters that changed zh-forms to zh-hanzi-box. AFAIK zh-forms is the current template for the Hanzi box in the Chinese section. — Justinrleung (t...)c=› 22:25, 17 October 2015 (UTC)Reply

What happened?


Hi VulpesVulpes. What’s going on? Is it something that can be worked out? — Ungoliant (falai) 14:25, 27 October 2015 (UTC)Reply

Nah nothing, I just felt like quitting Wiktionary. I might even come back one day, but for now, I feel like taking a break, and that break might be quite big, or quite small, depending on my own "mood", in lack of better words. Also, funny that you left a message on my talk page, I logged in only to see people's reactions to the message on my user page. Also, really nice of you to contact me, I appreciate that gesture — VulpesVulpes42 (talk) 08:31, 28 October 2015 (UTC)Reply

Some issues


Firstly, I have just deleted your entry Shrek, please as it is not dictionary material; please read WT:CFI to see what is and isn't considered an acceptable entry. Secondly, I ask you that you stop adding translations in languages that you do not know or have familiarity with, as you did at Confucius. The worry is that if you get something wrong or just make a small error, it may be a while until anyone catches it, which is why we should all be careful only to add what we know is correct. (And indeed, the Yiddish translation you added lacked the necessary diacritics — there may be other problems that I haven't noticed due to my unfamiliarity with some of the other languages in which you added translations.) Thanks! —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 17:19, 29 October 2015 (UTC)Reply

Kyūjitai in the 慢性原発性副腎皮質機能低下症 entry


I just undid your addition of the kyūjitai in the 慢性原発性副腎皮質機能低下症 entry. This is a relatively recent term in Japanese, and I can't find any evidence of the kyūjitai spelling. There is evidence of kyūjitai for just the 原発 part, but not of the whole 慢性原発性副腎皮質機能低下症 term. ‑‑ Eiríkr Útlendi │Tala við mig 17:03, 30 November 2015 (UTC)Reply



For what it's worth, |ex=true is no different from |ex=y. The template displays "(extended)" as long as |ex= is present, so I could write |ex=no or |ex=dsfogjfdpgfsdgvjdkfj and the template would still display "(extended)". —suzukaze (tc) 19:22, 9 January 2016 (UTC)Reply

@suzukaze-c I know, but I just feel like "true" feels more templatelike than "y" (and certainly more than dsfogjfdpgfsdgvjdkfj).
Whatever floats your boat :) —suzukaze (tc) 19:34, 9 January 2016 (UTC)Reply
