Exemplifying vs merely using on Simple Wikt[change]

Thank you for your recent edits on Simple English Wiktionary! When you add a sentence, try to use the word in a way that both helps make its meaning clear and represents that typical context in which the word is used. An example like That man is Mexican gives very little sense of either of those. --Brett (talk) 20:57, 18 October 2017 (UTC)

@Brett: Alright, thank you! Usually, I edit Wikipedia, so I wasn't very accustomed to the layout and policies. Zhangj1079 (Saluton!) 21:03, 18 October 2017 (UTC)

-er nouns like adorer[change]

We could make entries with -er noun entries for almost every verb, but that would probably not be a good use of resources. The word adorer occurs at a rate of about 0.01 times per million words in the COCA corpus. --Brett (talk) 15:45, 14 December 2017 (UTC)


I have nominated you for rollback. The nomination is at Wiktionary:Requests for permissions/Rollback. Pkbwcgs (talk) 15:14, 10 February 2018 (UTC)

Rare words[change]

Why have you started adding entries for a bunch of extremely rare words? While you can do so if you wish, it seems like an awful waste of time, especially when there are so many common words that lack an entry.--Brett (talk) 01:26, 12 February 2018 (UTC)

I was looking through the old WOTD archives at en.wikt. If you feel they're unnecessary, delete them. hiàn 01:36, 12 February 2018 (UTC)
I agree with Brett. Words like agonic, alpenglow and agon are rarely used and it is a waste of time. Why not look into Wiktionary:Requested definitions for all the words that need an entry here? I usually look at this page for any entries that are required. Pkbwcgs (talk) 09:38, 12 February 2018 (UTC)

how do I create a user subpage ?[change]

You have canceled my COMBINED SIMPLE wordlist and suggested to post it on a user subpage ... How can I create such a subpage ?

Thanks for any feedback !

@Jansegers: Hi, and sorry for the later than usual response (I am away on vacation). I had self-reverted to err on the side of caution, if you would still like to create a user subpage, you can do so by creating a page at Special:MyPage/SUBPAGE NAME, replacing "subpage name" with whatever you'd like to name it to. Cheers, and feel free to ask about anything else if you're finding issues. Hiàn (talk/editing on mobile account) 02:52, 29 July 2018 (UTC)
