Hi. It is more or less a standard policy to start definitions with a capital letter and finish it with a full stop. The header is also "Related terms" not "Related words". Apart from that, thanks for your many Dutch entries. Cheers. Vildricianus 12:33, 21 January 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

preview buttonEdit

This button will save lots of flooding in the Recent Changes page, rather than saving page then editing, preview until it is ready then save. Thanks and keep it up! theDaveRoss


Please do not blank entries.

If you entered a term in error, please use {{db|I goofed}} or {{rfd}} to flag it for deletion instead.

Why did you blank dijk at all? It was right. — Vildricianus 08:46, 9 February 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Invitation to contributeEdit


You might or might not already be aware that there is now a new system in place for marking translations that need to be checked (those that are suspected of being incorrect or those where it is not clear which sense(s) of a word the translations apply to). (See here for the Beer parlour discussion on this topic.)

Translations to be checked are now categorised by language. For example, Category:Translations_to_be_checked_(French) contains a list of all words where French translations need to be checked. This is designed to make the checking of these translations easier to maintain and work with.

I'm contacting everyone who has expressed an interest in working on translations or has indicated in Wiktionary:Babel that they have a good knowledge of a particular foreign language or languages.

Would you be interested in helping out with the translations to be checked for Dutch? If so, please read the page on how to check translations.

If you want to reply to this message, please do so on my talk page. Thanks for your help you can provide.
