Wiktionary should define Vedic and tradition, but leaves it up to Wikipedia to give information on the Vedic tradition. For more information see the links in the template below. Yours Conrad.Irwin 12:04, 15 June 2008 (UTC)Reply

Welcome edit

Hello, welcome to Wiktionary, and thank you for your contributions so far.

If you are unfamiliar with wiki-editing, take a look at Help:How to edit a page. It 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.

These links may help you familiarize yourself with Wiktionary:

  • Entry layout (EL) is a detailed policy on Wiktionary's page formatting; all entries must conform to it. The easiest way to start off is to copy the contents of an existing same-language entry, and then adapt it to fit the entry you are creating.
  • Check out Language considerations to find out more about how to edit for a particular language.
  • Our Criteria for Inclusion (CFI) defines exactly which words can be added to Wiktionary; the most important part is that Wiktionary only accepts words that have been in somewhat widespread use over the course of at least a year, and citations that demonstrate usage can be asked for when there is doubt.
  • If you already have some experience with editing our sister project Wikipedia, then you may find our guide for Wikipedia users useful.
  • If you have any questions, bring them to Wiktionary:Information desk or ask me on my talk page.
  • Whenever commenting on any discussion page, please sign your posts with four tildes (~~~~) which automatically produces your username and timestamp.
  • You are encouraged to add a BabelBox to your userpage to indicate your self-assessed knowledge of languages.

Enjoy your stay at Wiktionary! Conrad.Irwin 12:04, 15 June 2008 (UTC)Reply

Thank You. edit

Hi there,

This is a late digital migrant, recently got wikified! Hope to do justice to the work undertaken.

Thank you for the warm welcome.

Babel edit

I tweaked the template syntax. But we also have a few missing as yet; and I don't know what "h-2" was intended to be? Cheers, Robert Ullmann 17:57, 15 June 2008 (UTC)Reply

"h2" regarding. edit

That was intended to be Hindi. And you rightly did it! Thanks again. I would love to find more neat scripts of the Indian languages. I mean, the scripts on the templates are not that legible. Is there any way out?

I added a script template for Malayalam that we didn't have {{Mlym}}, increasing the size a bit; Windows in particular does a terrible job of selecting fonts and sizes that match in running text. (Not something they care about apparently.) Our script template set and font selection is always being improved. Robert Ullmann 14:52, 16 June 2008 (UTC)Reply
