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! Vahag (talk) 12:51, 8 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Lazika Yayıncılık edit

Hi. Do you know anyone at Lazika Yayıncılık? I ordered four Laz dictionaries from them, but they said they do not deliver abroad. Perhaps they will change their mind if Gubazes, the king of Lazica, vouches for me. Vahag (talk) 19:13, 14 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Unfortunately, I don't know. Gubazes (talk) 19:20, 14 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Ok, will try to involve the Hamshen mafia. Vahag (talk) 19:23, 14 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I have a .pdf present for you. Write me an email so I can reply with the present. --Vahag (talk) 15:07, 3 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I'm not quite sure how to find your email? Gubazes (talk) 19:46, 5 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Go to my user page, click on "Email this user". Vahag (talk) 19:51, 5 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I've looked at your User page. I can't seem to find it anywhere. Gubazes (talk) 20:15, 5 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Is it not here? Vahag (talk) 20:23, 5 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
You should provide an email address in your preferences as described at w:Wikipedia:Emailing users. Vahag (talk) 20:39, 5 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Babelbox edit

Hi. Will you add a Wiktionary:Babel template to your user page? You don't have to if you don't want, but it is important for people to know which languages you speak. Vahag (talk) 15:28, 17 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Erasing a page edit

Vahagn ღუინი (ğuini) how I'm suppose to delete a page. (talk) 16:41, 11 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

You need to be a sysop to delete a page. Add {{delete}} to the page with a short explanation. I or someone else will delete it. Vahag (talk) 17:08, 11 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Artvin edit

Here is a cool new side quest if you want to participate. {{R:tr:Artvinli}} has recorded 31 Laz-origin words in the Turkish dialects of Artvin province, mainly closer to the sea where the Lazes live. I am going to create the Artvin words and link the Laz terms in etymology. You could create the Laz etymons if you want. Vahag (talk) 22:41, 9 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Sure, why not? Some seem to be really similar, so I'll start with those. But for some I can't recognize, I need to know their meaning in order to find their Laz origin. Gubazes (talk) 09:50, 10 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Great! I will ping you in the edit summary when I find time to create the Artvin entries. Vahag (talk) 21:14, 15 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
