Tweeslachtige woordenEdit

Hallo daar, please note that for words that are both masculine and feminine (which occurs often in Dutch), there is {{m|f}}, to be used instead of {{m}} and/or {{f}}. H. (talk) 13:22, 26 September 2007 (UTC)

Oh, fantastisch. I'll start using it from now on. Dank je voor het hint. David 13:54, 24 October 2007 (UTC)

Your account will be renamedEdit

I'm quite confused. My used name is MuDavid, not David... MuDavid (talk) 03:02, 19 March 2015 (UTC)

Category:Requests for attention concerning VietnameseEdit

Hello. Might I request that you look at this category? Entries are in this category because they have been tagged with {{attention}}. AFAIK most of them are in there simply because the entry's creator was unsure of the quality/accuracy of the entry, not because of glaring issues that require a lot of work to fix. There's a lot of entries but checking even a handful once in a while would help reduce the number. —suzukaze (tc) 02:13, 8 June 2017 (UTC)

So much to do… Anyway, there's many entries there of which I don't see where attention is needed. Like, what's wrong with cà chua? MuDavid (talk) 03:38, 8 June 2017 (UTC)
Probably nothing, which is why {{attention}} needs to be removed from them. Like I said, the entry's creator was being really cautious and wanted someone else to look at it, but no one else ever did. —suzukaze (tc) 03:40, 8 June 2017 (UTC)
If only said creator had left a note somewhere explaining their intention. I mean, they might have spotted some subtle issue that I'm too obtuse to see. MuDavid (talk) 01:37, 9 June 2017 (UTC)


Maybe set for life? — Ungoliant (falai) 15:15, 13 June 2017 (UTC)

Seems like it, thanks! MuDavid (talk) 01:04, 14 June 2017 (UTC)


Great work on the Catalan entries! I really appreciate the citations. I just wanted to say that if you create an entry for a verb, please add it to User:DTLHS/catalan bot requests so the forms can be created by bot. Ultimateria (talk) 15:01, 4 August 2018 (UTC)

I find it helps me remember my vocabulary. :-) Thanks for the hint! Does it also work for nouns and adjectives? MuDavid (talk) 14:52, 6 August 2018 (UTC)
I believe so, but I've never tried it so I'm not sure. @DTLHS? Ultimateria (talk) 02:36, 15 August 2018 (UTC)
No it does not. DTLHS (talk) 02:42, 15 August 2018 (UTC)
But MediaWiki:Gadget-AcceleratedFormCreation.js/documentation aka ACCEL works. --XY3999 (talk) 09:38, 21 August 2018 (UTC)

Esperanto rhymesEdit

Thanks for spotting that. There's a template to add words to the rhymes page that automatically adds the rhyme template in the pronunciation section and credits the edit to whoever added the link. I thought it had been fixed so it stopped doing that, but apparently not. I'll have to keep an eye on it in the future. embryomystic (talk) 04:06, 11 May 2021 (UTC)
