@Minorax, would you take on the role of Bureaucrat?--Brett (talk) 11:26, 23 May 2020 (UTC)
@Brett: I wouldn't mind.--Minorax (talk) 12:31, 23 May 2020 (UTC)
Is there any particular reason you're asking me this? --Minorax (talk) 12:34, 23 May 2020 (UTC)
Well, you're as productive and knowledgable an editor as we've ever had, and it would be nice to have somebody else as bureaucrat should I be hit by a bus or something.--Brett (talk) 15:21, 23 May 2020 (UTC)


Congratulations on bureaucrat. You deserve it as seemingly the only person taking care of this wiki. Thanks for help so far as I joined this wiki and am learning how to contribute, and continue being awesome. Naleksuh (talk) 06:47, 2 June 2020 (UTC)

Appreciate it. Thanks. :) --Minorax (talk) 08:22, 2 June 2020 (UTC)

Yes.Congratulations on Bureaucrat.You are smart and productive just as what Brett said.-- Linxi 1234 (talk) 07:50, 25 July 2020 (UTC)

Main page fix[change]

@Minorax: Will you take this on? --Brett (talk) 13:44, 3 June 2020 (UTC)

@Brett: We would probably require Jon (WMF)'s help for this. --Minorax (talk) 14:13, 3 June 2020 (UTC)
I see. Well, if you know Jon, perhaps you could ask for his help?--Brett (talk) 14:41, 3 June 2020 (UTC)
@Brett: Yep, I will ask Jon for his help and discuss the details with him on his talk page. --Minorax (talk) 14:48, 3 June 2020 (UTC)

Pronunciation /ɹ/ vs /r/[change]

Would you have a look at Wiktionary:Simple_talk#IPA_/ɹ/ vs /r/?--Brett (talk) 14:34, 12 June 2020 (UTC)

I noticed you're still adding /ɹ/ in some pronunciations, such as aground.--Brett (talk) 17:02, 19 May 2021 (UTC)
Whoops, I occasionally forget to change it to /r/. Thanks for the note :) --Minorax (talk) 03:41, 20 May 2021 (UTC)


Hi Minorax,I have been seeing you everyday on Wiktionary.You edit very well

Yours sincerely,Linxi1234 Linxi 1234 (talk) 10:36, 30 June 2020 (UTC)

Hi,Do you know Brett?Or Koavf? Linxi 1234 (talk) 00:59, 26 July 2020 (UTC)

Depends. In the wikimedia world, yes. Else, no. --Minorax (talk) 07:01, 26 July 2020 (UTC)

Koavf asked me to ask you how to become an administrator. Linxi 1234 (talk) 09:01, 26 July 2020 (UTC)

@Linxi 1234: probably because Minorax has good judgement and is very active here. --Prahlad balaji (talk) 21:14, 4 September 2020 (UTC)

thx for redirecting 't to n't[change]

I couldn't do it myself, so thanks alot ! Jansegers (talk) 21:57, 3 August 2020 (UTC)


Thanks for the cleanup. I am used to using SEWP, but am still new overall to Wiktionary. I would appreciate a link that defines how to format new entries, so I can save time for others in the future. Once I am comfortable, I will create many entries. :) --IWI (talk) 16:04, 23 August 2020 (UTC)

@ImprovedWikiImprovment: Hello. Wiktionary:Entry layout explained might help. --Minorax (talk) 16:05, 23 August 2020 (UTC)
Thanks. I can see the various errors I have made now. Hopefully the next entry I do is better :) --IWI (talk) 16:40, 23 August 2020 (UTC)

Question on "absolute"[change]

I am a new contributor. Thanks for letting me know about the formatting. I will fix that. I followed the wiktionry suggestion ( " As the Simple English Wiktionary is mainly for readers that can only understand basic English, it is important to use images to help the reader understand what the word means, especially if the definitions given may not be understood easily."

and would like top add images. Why is the image I added not needed. Adding images like that would help comprehension of users particularly children

Our new sex editor[change]

It seems to me that User:Trentfrumfrhgyw, User:7g6d4lop, User:Hjh134, User:Computermice and User:45ththguyr are all likely the same user. I've warned User:Hjh134 and User:Computermice against sockpuppetry, but likely this was not read. It's not a big deal, since they're not manipulating votes or anything. Thoughts?--Brett (talk) 19:07, 8 December 2020 (UTC)

Hi, I'm the same as the second and last link, but not the warned users. I have now saved my password, so I will stick to one account. Thanks. Trentfrumfrhgyw (talk) 07:33, 9 December 2020 (UTC)
👍🏻--Brett (talk) 20:02, 9 December 2020 (UTC)
@Brett: Should we block the 2 accounts mentioned by Trentfrumfrhgyw? Minorax (talk) 22:46, 9 December 2020 (UTC)
Most likely pointless. I suspect we'll never hear from them again. If we do, then we can block.--Brett (talk) 22:50, 9 December 2020 (UTC)


I'd just like to extend my thanks to you again for continued persistent hard work here. It's noticed and very much appreciated.--Brett (talk) 15:48, 3 January 2021 (UTC)

@Brett: Thank you :) --Minorax (talk) 16:05, 3 January 2021 (UTC)
You're a phenomenon. In just under two years, you've made more edits here than I've made in 15. Thank you for your dedication!--Brett (talk) 12:29, 21 April 2021 (UTC)
@Brett: Hey. Thanks for your dedication as well! 15 years is no simple feat. --Minorax (talk) 23:25, 21 April 2021 (UTC)


My bad, didn't mean to step on your toes removing those talk page QD requests templates. Cheers--Gordonrox24 | Talk 01:50, 26 March 2021 (UTC)

@Gordonrox24: Hello, it's ok. I just don't see a need to leave them there and the IP has been creating several nonsensical talk pages. --Minorax (talk) 02:13, 26 March 2021 (UTC)

Hi I'm new here[change]

Hello IC Minorax! I am new here so please do spare me some slack. I am still trying to settle in and find my way around.

It is really quiet here. Is there a place where I can talk to other humans and work together? I am interested in helping out around here. (talk) 12:39, 29 March 2021 (UTC)

Well, there isn't an active enough community for you to interact with. If you are interested to help, you can read Wiktionary:Entry layout explained. --Minorax (talk) 00:58, 30 March 2021 (UTC)
Hi again Minorax. I will look at writing entries when I am brave enough to do so. Meanwhile I had been thinking about encouraging editors to talk to each other, help each other improve and celebrate each other's work. So I carefully considered creating a dedicated talk page for working together, like a good Community Central. I wrote more about this on User_talk:Brett. Cheers (talk) 17:51, 19 April 2021 (UTC)


For cities, do we count capital cities of regions or states as capital cities for Category:Capital cities? --Ferien (talk) 19:09, 10 May 2021 (UTC)

@Ferien: Yes, I believe so. See Jackson. --Minorax (talk) 04:58, 11 May 2021 (UTC)
Ok, thanks :) --Ferien (talk) 05:36, 11 May 2021 (UTC)
Sorry to bother you again. Should former capital cities be added to Category:Capital cities too? (e.g. Bonn) --Ferien (talk) 07:38, 12 June 2021 (UTC)
@Ferien: Hello. IMO, it should be fine for it to be categorised into the category. --Minorax (talk) 07:55, 12 June 2021 (UTC)
