Chinese Wiktionary


It's written in the paragraph «Wiktionaries in other languages» that Chinese Wiktionary has more than 1,000,000 entries, but it's not true, see zh:Special:Statistics. Could someone please fix this?

Thanks. — Automatik (talk) 17:58, 7 September 2014 (UTC)

English language -> multilingual

"Welcome to the English-language Wiktionary, a collaborative project to produce a free-content multilingual dictionary."

That sentence is sort of contradictory... When we say we make a multilingual dictionary, we should not be saying that this is the English Wiktionary's goal, since the English Wiktionary is only written in English, and only links to the same articles in other languages. Do any of you guys agree that we should change it in that sentence from "Welcome to the English-language Wiktionary" to just "Welcome to Wiktionary", or should we take out the word multilingual from the sentence? I'd like to hear some input. Rædi Stædi Yæti {-skriv til mig-} 19:37, 24 December 2014 (UTC)

An English-language dictionary of all the world's languages; surely there ought to be some way to say that briefly but clearly. --Pi zero (talk) 21:18, 24 December 2014 (UTC)
The English Wiktionary is multilingual in that words in all languages are defined here. The meaning of multilingual in this case is explained in the following sentence, so I don't think that the wording is a problem. --Yair rand (talk) 21:18, 24 December 2014 (UTC)

The Uzbek Wiktionary

The Uzbek Wiktionary has moved up. We now have over a hundred thousand entries. Please move it up the list on the main page. Nataev talk 04:21, 8 March 2015 (UTC)

By the way, the name of the language is Oʻzbekcha, not Oʻzbek. We can also add the Cyrillic version, as it is still used. So, we can write Oʻzbekcha/Ўзбекча, just like on Wikipedia. Nataev talk 04:30, 8 March 2015 (UTC)

Odd formatting

Something's happened to the formatting of the Main Page, which has made the left column very narrow and the right column too wide. — Cheers, JackLee talk 12:18, 6 September 2015 (UTC)

Funny. I am viewing it using the latest version of Mozilla Firefox, and the left column with the text looks like it is only taking up 20% of the window. It used to be half. — Cheers, JackLee talk 19:38, 6 September 2015 (UTC)
The left column looks squashed to me in Firefox, but normal in Internet Explorer. - -sche (discuss) 19:54, 6 September 2015 (UTC)
It looks fine in Safari (on my mobile device) too. Looks like it's a Firefox issue? — Cheers, JackLee talk 22:07, 7 September 2015 (UTC)
Hmmm, it's back to normal now. — Cheers, JackLee talk 18:27, 9 September 2015 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Nope, the problem is back again. — Cheers, JackLee talk 19:24, 10 September 2015 (UTC)
