While there's no rule against adding these by hand, it is discouraged as there are many bots to do this job, and all human edits have to be checked. You'd be surprised how many people add interwikis by hand and get it wrong! Mglovesfun (talk) 12:54, 18 November 2012 (UTC)

As far as I know I haven't did it wrong :-).

Hi, what does the word "muffe" mean in Danish? --Lo Ximiendo (talk) 17:01, 11 May 2014 (UTC)

It's several things. You could ask Google to translate this. I don't know what it's called in English. Maybe you should not insert a word you don't know what is :-).
- Sarrus (ct) 17:34, 11 May 2014 (UTC)
So could you help out with the word "messing" then? --Lo Ximiendo (talk) 19:25, 11 May 2014 (UTC)
The word has no plural (dictionary entry). Is there a template for that?
- Sarrus (ct) 19:31, 11 May 2014 (UTC)
Just say { { da-noun | put singular definite here | just leave this part blank } }. Ready Steady Yeti (talk) 03:15, 31 May 2014 (UTC)
Are you sure? It shows a plural but is that correct, when the word doesn't have plural?
- Sarrus (ct) 09:08, 31 May 2014 (UTC)
No it's not. For the inflection template just say { { da-noun-infl | singular definite | n=sg (meaning noun = singular) } } Ready Steady Yeti (talk) 15:54, 31 May 2014 (UTC)
That template gives a box instead of a text line, but maybe that doesn't matter?
- Sarrus (ct) 17:06, 31 May 2014 (UTC)
Okay, well there is a way you're supposed to do Danish entries. You're supposed to put an inflection box somewhere on the bottom too. But for the head, I'd do it like I showed you above. It'll say not done in plural form. Også, det er hyggeligt at møde dig! :) Ready Steady Yeti (talk) 17:46, 31 May 2014 (UTC)
You can see at messing#Danish how I have done it :-).
- Sarrus (ct) 18:09, 31 May 2014 (UTC)
Wait, isn't messing mean "brass"? Brass in English has a plural, "brasses". Are you sure this is singular only? Ready Steady Yeti (talk) 19:50, 31 May 2014 (UTC)
Please take a look at this dictionary entry.
- Sarrus (ct) 19:57, 31 May 2014 (UTC)
He gave you a poor advice. Inflection tables belong only to inflection sections, not on the headword line. --Dan Polansky (talk) 19:34, 31 May 2014 (UTC)
On the contrary, I said that inflection tables have their own sections did I not? Ready Steady Yeti (talk) 19:48, 31 May 2014 (UTC)
By doing it that way you get two fold out boxes. That's probably not advisable :-).
- Sarrus (ct) 20:39, 31 May 2014 (UTC)
By looking at penge (which has no singular) I made this fix. Isn't that okay?
- Sarrus (ct) 19:45, 31 May 2014 (UTC)

{{head|da|noun|g=c|definite singular|messing}} is probably not wrong, but many entries use {{da-noun}}. So I placed {{da-noun|g=c|messing|-}} there. --Dan Polansky (talk) 20:00, 31 May 2014 (UTC)

I made this typofix, but now we have yet a problem: Now I see that the word has two genders (dictionary entry). How is that done? Can it be done by other ways than having two inflection lines and two inflection boxes?
- Sarrus (ct) 20:13, 31 May 2014 (UTC)
I don't really know. You would have to look around and find an example. --Dan Polansky (talk) 20:25, 31 May 2014 (UTC)

nord, syd, øst, vest, nordøst, nordvest, sydøst, sydvestEdit

I created all these entries, but I need help with them. Are they used in plural form ever? Ready Steady Yeti (talk) 17:47, 31 May 2014 (UTC)

Those words have no plural.
- Sarrus (ct) 18:09, 31 May 2014 (UTC)
Can you say "norden" "syden"? Ready Steady Yeti (talk) 19:50, 31 May 2014 (UTC)
The words "norden", "syden", "østen" and "vesten" exist. But please be aware that norden and Norden are not the same :-).

ophavsgruppe and korskildeEdit

Since I know you're a native Danish speaker I want to ask you if these definitions are really correct.

All my sources said "ophavsgruppe" means "copyright group", although "ophav" actually also means "author" I believe, so does "ophavsgruppe" also mean "author group"?

Also, korskilde really confuses me. I found "korskilden" on an article on the Danish Wikipedia for Hjørring. The exact context was:

"Middelalder[redigér | redigér wikikode] Gennem hele middelalderen holdtes det gamle sysselting her, og byen blev også mødested for gejstligheden. Allerede i tidlig middelalder fik byen hele 3 kirker; Ved sct. Olai Kirke fandtes Sct. Olai kilde eller korskilden. Desuden fandtes, dengang sydvest for byen, et Sankt Knuds Hellig Kors kapel i tilknytning til en gennem lange tider besøgt helligkilde. I dag er der et anlæg kaldet Sct. Knuds kilde. I slutningen af 1400-tallet stiftedes endvidere i tilknytning til Sankt Catharinæ kirke et Sankt Annæ kapel, til hvilket der sandsynligvis har været knyttet et hospital. Byens fornemste borgere samledes med udenbys stormænd i et Sankt Knuds gilde med eget gildehus, og den ret talrige gejstlighed mødtes i et særligt gilde, der ligeledes havde eget hus."

I'm guessing since it's talking about Christian and Saint related things, does korskilde mean a reference to a/the cross or does it mean a spring or fountain that has to do with a cross? I'd very much appreciate it if you'd help please. (: Ready Steady Yeti (talk) 02:02, 1 June 2014 (UTC)

Neither of the words are mentioned in any of the dictionaries on That doesn't necessarily mean that the words don't exist, but I cannot tell you what they mean. Have you ever used irc? You could enter #wikipedia-da on Freenode and ask questions there. If you don't have an irc client you can enter through the webchat. You can read more about it on w:da:Hjælp:Chat (in Danish, but you are da-3).
