Hello, welcome to Wiktionary, and thank you for your contribution so far. Here are a few good links for newcomers:

  • How to edit a page 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.
  • Entry layout explained (ELE) is a detailed policy documenting how Wiktionary pages should be formatted. All entries should conform to this standard, the easiest way to do this is to copy exactly an existing page for a similar word.
  • Our Criteria for inclusion (CFI) define exactly which words Wiktionary is interested in including. There is also a list of things that Wiktionary is not for a higher level overview.
  • The FAQ aims to answer most of your remaining questions, and there are several help pages that you can browse for more information.
  • We have discussion rooms in which you can ask any question about Wiktionary or its entries, a glossary of our technical jargon, and some hints for dealing with the more common communication issues.

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.

Again, welcome! --EncycloPetey

Language codesEdit

When you add a translation, please subst: any ISO language codes. That is, please use {{subst:hsb}}, instead of {{hsb}}. --EncycloPetey 03:37, 9 November 2009 (UTC)


The Etymology always comes before the Pronunciation. --EncycloPetey 02:29, 20 November 2010 (UTC)

{{t-}} is deprecated.Edit

This isn't a huge deal, but FYI, {{t-}} has long since been deprecated, and should no longer be used; see Wiktionary:Votes/2013-09/Translation-links to other Wiktionaries. (I mention this because you added it in this edit to 'Yule'.)

Thanks, and happy New Year!
