Welcome messageEdit

Since no one gave you the standard welcome message, here it is:


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 documenting how Wiktionary pages should be formatted. All entries should conform to this standard. The easiest way to start off is to copy the contents of an existing page for a similar word, and then adapt it to fit the entry you are creating.
  • Our Criteria for inclusion (CFI) define exactly which words can be added to Wiktionary, though it may be a bit technical and longwinded. 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.
  • The FAQ aims to answer most of your remaining questions, and there are several help pages that you can browse for more information.
  • A glossary of our technical jargon, and some hints for dealing with the more common communication issues.
  • If you have anything to ask about or suggest, we have several discussion rooms. Feel free to ask any other editors in person if you have any problems or question, by posting a message on their talk page.

You are encouraged to add a BabelBox to your userpage. This shows which languages you know, so other editors know which languages you'll be working on, and what they can ask you for help with.

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.

And keep up the good work (I assume it is good, anyway, but I know nothing about Welsh) --Daleusher (talk) 13:25, 9 October 2020 (UTC)

@Daleusher: You're welcome! I'm not sure what you're thanking me for, though! – Guitarmankev1 (talk) 14:24, 9 October 2020 (UTC)
For generally being here, and having reasonably good humour. --Daleusher (talk) 19:54, 9 October 2020 (UTC)
I appreciate that! Good humor is important, I think. It's nice to see that you're still here as well :) – Guitarmankev1 (talk) 23:06, 9 October 2020 (UTC)

Bringing back ƿynn entriesEdit

Dear Guitarmankev1, hello, I'm sorry for bothering you, there was a vote to remove all ƿynn entries and you voted against option 1 - Wiktionary:Votes/2020-09/Removing_Old_English_entries_with_wynns.

There is a discussion about it on the Wiktionary:Beer parlour/2020/November page - [[1]]I only wanted to ask if there were a vote to bring the entries back, would you support it? Sorry for bothering again. Birdofadozentides (talk) 23:00, 23 November 2020 (UTC)

Hi Birdofadozentides, echoing what a few other users have said, I'd be all for having wynn-entries for words which have attestable use, even if the entire entry only consists of an "alternative form of" template. – Guitarmankev1 (talk) 20:41, 24 November 2020 (UTC)
Guitarmankev1, I'm so sorry for answering so late, thank you! Though I wouldn't like the entries to consist only the template, they used to have more information. Birdofadozentides (talk) 13:10, 1 December 2020 (UTC)
