Welcome edit


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 22:40, 31 July 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Improving glossses edit

What entry gave you trouble? Did the translation table have a gloss? DCDuring TALK 19:57, 29 August 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thank you for asking! e.g. Trying to add Turkish translations for grasp, I can't add the translation for to grip, that error message shows up. However, I was able to add the translation for to understand with no problems (btw both translations are the same). Unfortunately this isn't a single case; I've come across about 10 of these among 300-400 entries.--Ailurophile 01:33, 30 August 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I could only have solved the problem if it were an easy one. I duplicated the problem you had with my FF3.5 set up. I also just added the translation manually. I don't remember whether it was User:Conrad.Irwin or User:Robert Ullmann who created that feature, but they are the two most likely to be able to help.

OK, thanks.

w:Penitents Compete edit

Hello there. I was wondering if you had time to look at that article; there is a point on the Talk page that I was wondering if you could help out with. If you could check Turkish newspaper sites to verify that point, it would be very helpful. Thanks, NuclearWarfare 01:54, 24 September 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
