Hello, Gordonrox24, and welcome to the Simple English Wiktionary!
If you want to talk with other members or ask a question, you can visit Wiktionary:Simple talk. Administrators can also help you with more difficult problems. You can also ask me for help. The best way to do that is to leave a message on my talk page. Just remember to sign your messages on talk pages by typing "~~~~" (four tildes) at the end of your words.
- If you have any hints, they would be appreciated!--Gordonrox24 | Talk 23:46, 29 January 2011 (UTC)
- Have a look here. Notice the settings on the left. In particular, note that there's a window for "COLLOCATES". If you go to the site directly, that won't be there. You'll have to click on the word to get the space, but don't enter anything. Then click where it says "CLICK TO SEE OPTIONS" to get the list of options and set GROUP BY to LEMMAS as it is in the example. Don't worry about anything else. It will all set itself.
- Now when you do the search, it will come up with the list of words in blue that you see on the right beginning with [MOST]. If you click on each word (e.g., [MOST]), that will present you with a bunch of examples. Scroll through what you find until you get one that's meaningful and short enough. Make some simple edits if needed and you've got your example. In this case, gentlest isn't a common word, so you won't have many good examples, but try it with something else. Good luck. Let me know if you have questions.--Brett (talk) 01:04, 30 January 2011 (UTC)
- Wow that makes it much easier. Thanks a lot!--Gordonrox24 | Talk 01:10, 30 January 2011 (UTC)
- Yep. I said I would knock it off for a bit and see what happens. The bots made me proud. Thanks! --Gordonrox24 | Talk 21:56, 4 February 2011 (UTC)
- Oh... I thought it was, because you would usually find a gravestone in a graveyard... Is there a guideline we can follow, or a general rule of thumb to help us out here? Thanks, any guidance helps! --Gordonrox24 | Talk 22:48, 8 February 2011 (UTC)
- Related words are the derived forms, not simply semantically related. To see examples, have a look here. That lists headwords with their derived and inflected forms. The inflected forms (like plurals, and past tense) should be listed at the top of the page, not in the related words.--Brett (talk) 01:29, 9 February 2011 (UTC)
- Ahhh I see. Thank you!--Gordonrox24 | Talk 01:55, 9 February 2011 (UTC)
- Oh cool. Thanks Barras!--Gordonrox24 | Talk 20:19, 21 February 2011 (UTC)
Stopping by... [change]
I Gordonrox24! I hope you are doing well recently. I am just stopping by to thank you for helping out such as small wiki. We could not have done it without your tireless efforts in improving the wiki. Thank you! Hydriz (talk) 09:16, 1 March 2011 (UTC)
- Thanks, I enjoy the small wiki feel. :) --Gordonrox24 | Talk 16:54, 1 March 2011 (UTC)
- Wow I don't think I've ever done that before. Will replace the warning with a welcome. Thanks for the note.--Gordonrox24 | Talk 18:30, 14 March 2011 (UTC)
thnx for your help. [change]
- Not a problem! --Gordonrox24 | Talk 00:07, 26 April 2011 (UTC)
- Hey Pmlineditor. Just checked my mail and junk folder and don't see it. Maybe you can resend. Sorry. --Gordonrox24 | Talk 17:13, 13 May 2011 (UTC)
Hey Gordonrox, would you be interested in me nominating you for admin status? I've seen you create quite a few entries and help out, I think you'll do well with the extra tools. Sysop standards here are not high in my exprience. Let me know what you think. :) Tempodivalse [talk] 17:15, 15 May 2011 (UTC)
- Hey Tempodivalse. Thanks for the offer, but I must decline for now. In September I will begin a time of extended traveling, and may only have internet connection once a month. So, until we are a little closer to September and I have a better idea of where I am going to be, I'm trying not to take on any more online responsibilities as I don't think I will be able to be as active as normal from September onwards for around 9 months. If, in September, it turns out that I will be able to be more active than originally thought, then maybe I can take up your offer then. Thanks though! --Gordonrox24 | Talk 18:27, 15 May 2011 (UTC)
When writing articles, can the definition only be 1 sentence long? Does it have a full stop/period at the end? How many examples should the article have? What is the maximum number of examples? Thank you, DJDunsie (talk) 14:11, 16 August 2011 (UTC).
- Gordonrox is not very active here at the moment, so I'll reply for him. The definition should be clear yet as short and simple as possible. It can be more than one sentence, with all the punctuation included. There is no limit to the number of example sentences, but I suggest not using more than 3-4 per definition. Use your best judgment, and remember that the goal is to make things easy for an English learner to understand. Don't overwhelm the reader. Tempodivalse [talk] 15:31, 16 August 2011 (UTC)
- Thanks for answering Tempodivalse. Sorry I'm not very active, I'm not very active at any project right now. Hope to help out more though. Thanks!--Gordonrox24 | Talk 16:34, 19 August 2011 (UTC)
