Ard suffixEdit

I believe the roll back to the discussion on the suffix -ard is incorrect. -Ard does not have an inherent connotation of negativity. See Wizard, Spaniard, Picard, Montagnards etc Alexidb (talk) 13:33, 4 January 2021 (UTC)

Spaniard, Montagnard, Picard are all borrowings from French, so the examples you added should go to French section of -ard. Most examples in English using -ard seem to be pejorative, wizard being an exception. Perhaps the definition could be slightly reworded, but it remains a mostly pejorative suffix. – Jberkel 14:00, 4 January 2021 (UTC)

Maillard termsEdit

Why do you persist in removing this request when three of the four terms requested in it have neither yet been created, nor declined as unsuitable? Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 18:54, 16 January 2021 (UTC)

@Pigsonthewing: Maillard browning, Maillard reaction exist so I removed them from the list. The other terms are still listed. Where's the problem? – Jberkel 19:01, 16 January 2021 (UTC)
You amnended a comment signed by me so that it no longer says what I wrote. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 19:08, 16 January 2021 (UTC)
Sorry to have stepped on your comment, but created entries are routinely removed from these pages to keep them manageable. In Special:Diff/61559068/61559325, you re-requested an entry which was already created at that point. – Jberkel 21:33, 16 January 2021 (UTC)


I don't see how your newly added sense is different. When you take part in a video call, you are transmitting real-time camera pictures over the net. Equinox 11:57, 27 January 2021 (UTC)

A webcam in the older sense is something you just look at (trojan coffee pot etc), and don't use for bidirectional video calls. But yes, maybe it could be merged into one sense. – Jberkel 12:15, 27 January 2021 (UTC)


About xurro as 'mess', I think it is more accurate as botch or bodge, a bad job, not sure if also 'mess'. This is catanyol, you won't find it in Catalan dictionaries, but in Spanish ca:churro. In that sense I would have said bunyol, another deformed pastry :-) --Vriullop (talk) 07:23, 28 January 2021 (UTC)

@Vriullop: Thanks! Some of my companys seem to speak catanyol, I also noticed candau which is marked as castellanisme on ca:candau. Perhaps we need a similar label here. – Jberkel 08:01, 28 January 2021 (UTC)
Sure, there is a lot of colloquial catanyol that has recently entered the language, and that is not normally found in literature or among speakers of traditionally Catalan-speaking families. --Vriullop (talk) 08:16, 28 January 2021 (UTC)


What do you think it means? You can defer to a person, you overvalue them 2600:1700:BAD0:23C0:8193:662F:7997:C828 19:15, 18 February 2021 (UTC)

that being said, how is the definition quote unquote "law"? 2600:1700:BAD0:23C0:8193:662F:7997:C828 19:19, 18 February 2021 (UTC)
and the definition for "simp" just says the word "defer" 2600:1700:BAD0:23C0:8193:662F:7997:C828 19:21, 18 February 2021 (UTC)
"(slang) A man who foolishly overvalues and defers to a woman, putting her on a pedestal.
(slang, by extension) Someone who foolishly overvalues someone else and defers to them, putting them on a pedestal." - definition for simp 2600:1700:BAD0:23C0:8193:662F:7997:C828 19:29, 18 February 2021 (UTC)
This is already covered by the first definition. – Jberkel 19:32, 18 February 2021 (UTC)
this time, i didn't even undo your edit. explain how it's "law" 2600:1700:BAD0:23C0:8193:662F:7997:C828 19:36, 18 February 2021 (UTC)
you can always defer to a person in an informal scenario, as in a scenario that's not part of law 2600:1700:BAD0:23C0:8193:662F:7997:C828 19:46, 18 February 2021 (UTC)
Please stop your disruptive edits. There's no need to freak out. – Jberkel 19:53, 18 February 2021 (UTC)
yes/yep 2600:1700:BAD0:23C0:8193:662F:7997:C828 19:58, 18 February 2021 (UTC)

My image editsEdit

Hello Jberkel,

I believed I was doing relevant images to illustrate the words. Contrary to what you suggest, I wasn't just taking image caption and adding it to all words. I used two different captions, and only added it to the most relevant words.

Above is the gallery of removed illustrations with captions (boldened word is the Wiktionary entry I used it for). The only one that may have been overkill was lifetime. Maaaybe active is not 100% perfect as well, but I made sure to put it to #5 definition, which was best. Do you believe that the images don't depict tourism, recreation, adventure and horseback?

I'm a beginner, so I'm going to ask for guidance at global discussion as well. Kind regards.

One-stop shopEdit

You reverted translation to Spanish for one-stop shop: Spanish: {{t|es|ventanilla única}}.--BoldLuis (talk) 17:31, 2 March 2021 (UTC)

That was in December though, don't remember exactly, but it looks like it was my mistake. – Jberkel 17:49, 2 March 2021 (UTC)

pronunciation botEdit

If you do run the pron-bot again, bear in mind that some French audios are kinda misleading, often saying things like "l'avion" or "un choc" instead of just the lemma. I don't remember any other details about that issue. Yellow is the colour (talk) 13:05, 16 April 2021 (UTC)

I think the more recent recordings have better metadata, but there was the quality problem. Most of the good recordings come from the same small group of 5,6 editors anyway, so they could just be put on a whitelist. – Jberkel 13:16, 16 April 2021 (UTC)

Full list of a user’s page creationsEdit

Hello, needed your help regarding this problem. Where do I get that for me? This shows only some of the pages I created, while the rest (like মা) do not appear. I saw that when I add a new language entry to an existing page, this happens. Is something amiss? Thank you! -- dictātor·mundī 14:10, 1 May 2021 (UTC)

@Inqilābī: Adding a new L2 header does not count as adding a new page in MediaWiki's view (it's a single page). In order to get these stats we would have to write our own tools which know about the way Wiktionary entries are structured. – Jberkel 21:46, 1 May 2021 (UTC)
I actually meant new entries… That’s a typo. on my part, sorry. Or even then is it the same? -- dictātor·mundī 07:42, 2 May 2021 (UTC)
I'm not sure what you mean, but you gave মা as an example. The page was created by User:Msasag, to which you added an Assamese entry later. This addition is not captured by any user stat right now. The page creator gets "all the credit" (and MediaWiki notifications). WT:STATS tracks changes in L2 headers, but is not concerned with user stats. – Jberkel 12:49, 2 May 2021 (UTC)

bequiffed citationEdit

Hi. Does it really say "miserabalist" and not "miserabilist"? If so, please add {{sic}} to indicate authorial error. Equinox 00:52, 4 May 2021 (UTC)
