You may find it useful to look this over before creating more entries that may end up deleted. For well attested languages like English and Japanese, dictionaries do not serve to attest to a word. Instead, at least three independent uses of the word in durably archived media (things that are physically published, or that turn up on Google Books or Usenet) must be found. In the case of a word like yamma, it is of course possible, but quite unlikely, that these criteria will be met. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 08:08, 23 February 2018 (UTC)

Japanese quotesEdit

It seems like you're not using {{ja-usex}} and I was just wondering why. (Also, thanks for adding quotes :) ) —Suzukaze-c 00:36, 17 April 2018 (UTC)

Am I not? My usual practice is to use {{ja-usex}} for simple, sort examples and {{quote-book}} or similar for longer examples from published works. See a recent example of both at ぺちゃんこ. If I do something else, it's probably because I'm not paying sufficient attention. Cnilep (talk) 00:44, 17 April 2018 (UTC)
Ah, you are right. I wasn't looking close enough, sorry.
I think it would be better to use {{ja-usex}} for both cases for the sake of consistency, although I get that the transliteration might make things long and unaesthetic. —Suzukaze-c 00:48, 17 April 2018 (UTC)
Does ja-usex make categories easier/more appropriate? Maybe it would be good to use ja-usex for both, but precede the long ones with #* and use #: for the short ones? Cnilep (talk) 00:54, 17 April 2018 (UTC)
The categories Category:Japanese terms with usage examples and Category:Japanese terms with quotations exists, but {{ja-usex}} only sorts into the first category, and entries in the latter category use {{quote}} (for some reason or other).
#: / #* for usage examples / quotes is normal Wiktionary practice, isn't it? —Suzukaze-c 01:01, 17 April 2018 (UTC)

Headings for Japanese termsEdit

Hello Chad --

I tweaked your edits over at 擦る. Note that we don't use any "Readings" header, and instead we break out different readings under separate "Etymology" headers. Otherwise, looks good, and thank you for expanding the entry! ‑‑ Eiríkr Útlendi │Tala við mig 19:50, 1 May 2018 (UTC)

Japanese requested entriesEdit

Hi. When removing requests added in good faith, as you did here [1], please explain in the edit summary why you are removing them without fulfilling them. Equinox 19:40, 11 July 2018 (UTC)

Oh, I didn't remove them; I moved them from 'unsorted' to the appropriate kana-sorted sections. I guess I should use edit summaries to make that clear. Best, Cnilep (talk) 22:56, 11 July 2018 (UTC)
