On the etyl templateEdit

Hey Calignari, thanks for your recent German additions! One small thing to note is that the template {{etyl}} is deprecated and all instances of its use are being replaced by more modern templates; we use {{der}} generally the way {{etyl}} used to be used and in specific instances some related templates (such as {{bor}} and {{inh}}) now. For German terms that are formations within the German language itself and do not directly derive from another language, there is no need to use any of those anyway (you can just use {{m}} then) - if you do, the term will be categorized wrongly as a twice-borrowed term. This was the case with e.g. Rosinenpickerei, which I have since corrected - note my edits to that etymology for reference. Your entry Bocher had some small template issues too; you can see the corrections here: Special:Diff/58068222/58116280. These are however small points, the entries are otherwise pretty much model entries as far as comprehensiveness goes on Wiktionary. — Mnemosientje (t · c) 10:44, 5 December 2019 (UTC)

Hey Mnemosientje, thank you very much and sorry for causing any trouble. Unfortunately these things happen when you're not very active on this wiktionary. I surely missed a lot of template actualizations. I'll use the new ones from now on. — Caligari ƆɐƀïиϠ 13:02, 8 December 2019 (UTC)
Thank you, and keep up the good work — Mnemosientje (t · c) 14:45, 8 December 2019 (UTC)


Thanks for your comments on the German requested entries. For whatever reason we don't seem to have many active German editors (maybe that just means that de.wikt is more active?). So that requests page is very large. If you have got time to create some of those words then that would be great! Equinox 02:54, 9 January 2020 (UTC)

Hi there, Equinox! Sure, that’s what I intend to do throughout the year, anyway … time permitting, of course. Face-smile.svgCaligari ƆɐƀïиϠ 14:55, 9 January 2020 (UTC)


I don't know much about the guts of templates and tend to avoid editing them. I reposted your question at WT:GP on 30 January; no responses yet. Equinox 18:15, 10 February 2020 (UTC)
