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.

Again, welcome!


Hi, please don't use {{l|en}} in definitions. It's used that way in some entries but it's not the standard format. —Rua (mew) 11:23, 21 May 2019 (UTC)

@Rua: Oh, I'm sorry. I won't use it in definitions anymore. Thank you for correcting! Pablussky (talk) 13:50, 21 May 2019 (UTC)

Spanish conjugation botEdit

Hey. The current page to feed Spanish bots is User:DTLHS/spanish bot requests (shortcut WT:FSB (feed Spanish bot)). --Yesyesandmaybe (talk) 09:13, 26 January 2020 (UTC)

Otra cosa, the same bot periodically makes the forms of Spanish adjectives and nouns, so you don't need to do that either. --Yesyesandmaybe (talk) 09:15, 26 January 2020 (UTC)
Oh, okay. Thank you. I'm still getting used to how everything works here and bots are kinda new to me. Pablussky (talk) 09:35, 26 January 2020 (UTC)


...por el culo te la hinco. I remember there being another number that has a similar rhyme, like "siete, en la boca te lo mete" or "seis, me lo metéis"... Can you help me out? --Kriss Barnes (talk) 20:02, 12 August 2020 (UTC)

@Kriss Barnes I'll try to think of it, but I can't really come up with any other right now. Pablussky (talk) 00:53, 13 August 2020 (UTC)
