WelcomeEdit

Welcome!

Hello, welcome to Wiktionary, and thank you for your contribution so far. Here are a few good links for newcomers:

  • How to edit a page 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.
  • Entry layout explained (ELE) is a detailed policy documenting how Wiktionary pages should be formatted. All entries should conform to this standard, the easiest way to do this is to copy exactly an existing page for a similar word.
  • Our Criteria for inclusion (CFI) define exactly which words Wiktionary is interested in including, there is also a list of things that Wiktionary is not for a higher level overview.
  • The FAQ aims to answer most of your remaining questions, and there are several help pages that you can browse for more information.
  • We have discussion rooms in which you can ask any question about Wiktionary or its entries, a glossary of our technical jargon, and some hints for dealing with the more common communication issues.

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wiktionarian! If you have any questions, bring them to the Wiktionary:Information desk, or ask me on my talk page. If you do so, please sign your posts with four tildes: ~~~~ which automatically produces your username and the current date and time.

Again, welcome! --Ivan Štambuk 11:39, 28 August 2009 (UTC)

TemplatesEdit

Anything using {{context}} automatically ends up in context templates, so it's usually going to be the other one (without context) that's a duplicate. Mglovesfun (talk) 10:26, 29 December 2009 (UTC)

QuotationsEdit

Wikiquote is not a source used for our quotations. That's not what we mean by "quotations" here. Most quotations we use are not notable enough to ever be included in Wikiquote. See Citations:parrot for examples of what Wiktionary wants in terms of supporting information. --EncycloPetey 22:08, 29 December 2009 (UTC)

Test pagesEdit

Please stop creating test pages. If you must create them by all means then use your own subspace User:Nemo/.... -- Gauss (talk) 23:50, 20 May 2012 (UTC)

sisterEdit

Sister is not an adjective. You can't say "those cities are sister". Besides, the page you linked to shows the part of speech as a noun, but mentions that the sense in question is used as an adjective, which is just another way of saying that it's used attributively as if it were an adjective.
