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.

Personal questionsEdit


do you mind if I were to ask you a few personal questions? Feel free to not answer them, but I ask them because I wish to know something about 'memory' in Russia or with Russians in general. I ask these questions to several native Russian speakers, so forgive me if you encounter these questions on different talkpages. So here are the questions:

  • When were you born?
  • Were you 16 or older in the 1980s?
  • Were you born in Russia/Soviet Union? Where?
  • How do you remember the Soviet-Afghan war/Afghan war?
  • How do you remember the Soviet repression, such as the Gulag or the prison camp system?
  • How do you remember the public discussion in the 1980s/1990s about the repression and the prison camp system?
  • How do you feel about the victims of the Afghan war and the victims of the repression?

Answer in anyway you like (which includes not answering as well of course), thank you very much.

Kind regards,

Hjælp med danske oversættelserEdit


Vil du hjælpe mig med at gennemgå denne liste og tilføje danske oversættelser? Der er ca 5000 artikler og de har alle mindst en nb-oversættelse som ofte er meget lig den danske.

Jeg har begyndt med -, A og W.--So9q (talk) 11:03, 29 August 2019 (UTC)

Lyder interessant, men hvad er formålet dog med sådan et projekt? --VladVP (talk) 20:23, 29 August 2019 (UTC)
Tak for svaret! Formålet er at øge antallet oversættelser en->da i en:wiktionary. Det kan man naturligvis gøre på mange måder. Jeg synes denne er let fordi norsk er så tæt på dansk og det er mere eller mindre copy paste på mange af oversættelserne.--So9q (talk) 21:20, 29 August 2019 (UTC)
Jeg er altid glad for at lave nye oversættelser, men jeg må nu alligevel erklære mig lettere forvirret. Den sandkasse du har linket til ser ud til at indeholde et stamtræ over den Iranske/Ariske sprogstamme? Er det selve navnene på alle disse sprog du gerne vil oversætte, eller er det kategorierne af ord der nedstammer fra disse sprog?
Beklager forvirringen. Her er listen.--So9q (talk) 05:15, 31 August 2019 (UTC)
