Welcome edit

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 on Wiktionary's page formatting; all entries must conform to it. The easiest way to start off is to copy the contents of an existing same-language entry, and then adapt it to fit the entry you are creating.
  • Check out Language considerations to find out more about how to edit for a particular language.
  • Our Criteria for Inclusion (CFI) defines exactly which words can be added to Wiktionary; 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.
  • If you have any questions, bring them to Wiktionary:Information desk or ask me on my talk page.
  • Whenever commenting on any discussion page, please sign your posts with four tildes (~~~~) which automatically produces your username and timestamp.
  • You are encouraged to add a BabelBox to your userpage to indicate your self-assessed knowledge of languages.

Enjoy your stay at Wiktionary! —Svārtava (t/u) • 08:51, 19 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

See also edit

Stop removing {{also}} templates. They are there for a reason (see the template documentation). — SURJECTION / T / C / L / 13:18, 29 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Mr. Surjection: It isn't any more worthy to use "See also template" in specialized-Egyptian-article. It isn't very pleasant in the article. The page is to redirect to nṯr from nTr, so why is it needed "See also" containing "nṯr"? I thought it was unnecessary.
It is a lower chance to access nTr for whom want to visit ntr. They'll correct it themselves. --Sethemhat (talk) 13:27, 29 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
The "see also" template is language-agnostic. It doesn't matter whether it's on an Egyptian entry, or an English entry or a page with fifty different languages. It's meant to be used whenever there are pages with the same letters but different diacritics, capitalization, punctuation, etc. to ease navigation. — SURJECTION / T / C / L / 13:29, 29 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Well, I'll obey Wiktionary's rule what you, sysop said. Thanks for teaching me about that. --Sethemhat (talk) 13:33, 29 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
