Hello, welcome. I don't have one of those standard welcome templates to chuck at you, unfortunately. If you need anything, I'd be happy to help if I'm able, or anyone else around here will be (or should be :)). Again, welcome, and have fun.

P.S. Good luck with your Master's.

The standard welcome template[edit]

Welcome! Always glad to see some new help around here! And here's the standard welcome stuff, just because it includes some handy shortcuts to good help:


Hello, and welcome to Wiktionary. Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are a few good links for newcomers:

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!

I replied on my talk page to your question, by the way. --Wytukaze 22:30, 15 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Images and formatting[edit]

Hello again. I believe the practice here is either to upload the file to Commons (preferred) or to upload it to the Wiktionary. In either case, choose the "Upload file" link in the lower left. If you upload images, please be very aware of license and copyright, since Commons does not accept images under fair use. For an example of a properly formatted image linked to Commons, see snail.

Also, please take another look at American Sign Language and Wiktionary's standard page format. The headings are very important, so please try to include them in your definitions. Thanks for asking. --Dvortygirl 23:16, 15 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Damn, I did it again. See Dvorty's talk page for my reply to your latest question. --Wytukaze 01:51, 16 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Re: Education category[edit]

I see you have figured out how to add articles to a catogory. Good. I think the main thing you should consider now is what sorts of articles you want in that category. Since "education" is not as focused a title as something like "English heteronyms", you might want to consider the scope of your category put a few notes at the top of Category:Education stating your intentions for the category contents. The title alone suggests to me that Bloom's Taxonomy, fourth grade, sophomore, recess, and notebook could all end up there, for instance. Beyond that, all that's left (to my knowledge), is to start adding [[Category:Education]] to the bottom of articles you want in the category. If you have any other questions, I'll be around. --Dvortygirl 20:41, 18 Jun 2005 (UTC)

To create subcategories, just add them to the categories like any other article. For instance, if you peek into the edit screen, you'll see that the subcategory Category:English idioms is in Category:Idioms. --Dvortygirl 05:06, 19 Jun 2005 (UTC)
Hi, me again. I notice you're creating categories by "Primary School", "College", and so on. Chatting with Wytukaze (that other fellow whose note appears at the top of this page), it is clear that these various levels are not called by the same names here as they are in the UK. College, as I understand it, is a separate two years between high school and university for our colleagues across the pond, so take care when establishing these categories. Also, consider that something like sophomore could belong in both high school and (US) college.--Dvortygirl 15:04, 19 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Education entries[edit]

Hi there. These entries seem to be very US centred. Bachelor of Arts for instance mentions semester which (I think) is only used in the US and probably Canada. Other people use term. Cheers SemperBlotto 07:39, 20 Jun 2005 (UTC)
