In very simple terms the citation templates used are trying to do something that HTML5 does not allow. Putting List markup (DL, UL , OL) inside a SPAN tag. This is impossibleby HTML structuring conventions.
Perhaps someone here can write a version of the template, that DOES work and doesn't need me to run around playing hunt the pedantic parser failing? ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 20:43, 24 November 2018 (UTC)
- I've removed the quotes; it looks like a format we don't follow anymore (or didn't follow in the first place). Hiàn (talk) 21:55, 24 November 2018 (UTC)

Approximately how many word queries does simple English Wiktionary get in a day?
Approximately how many queries are made daily and who appears to be the main users of simple Wiktionary? Elementary school children? Esl students....? —This unsigned comment was added by Hjh1313 (talk • contribs) .
- No one knows. and no one collects information. Our viewers are from all over the world and cover all age groups. Tyler de Noche (talk) 23:11, 9 December 2018 (UTC)
Waste of time[change]
I am done with simple wiktionary. It seems only the select few have edits/additions accepted. I have tried to add images to help with the readers' comprehension and all have been undone. This is a waste of time. Too bad Hjh1313
- For what it's worth, I don't think it's true at all that only select few have additions accepted. If we revert your edits, it's because they violated policy or were not good for Wiktionary. Either way, there's always a reason for it, nothing personal. In this instance, it's because you were bringing over copyrighted files that you had uploaded on Commons, and that's not allowed.

Selection of the Tremendous Wiktionary User Group representative to the Wikimedia Summit 2019[change]
Sorry for posting this message in English and last minute notification. The Tremendous Wiktionary User Group could send one representative to the Wikimedia Summit 2019 (formerly "Wikimedia Conference"). The Wikimedia Summit is an yearly conference of all organizations affiliated to the Wikimedia Movement (including our Tremendous Wiktionary User Group). It is a great place to talk about Wiktionary needs to the chapters and other user groups that compose the Wikimedia movement.
For context, there is a short report on what happened last year. The deadline is very close to 24 hrs. The last date for registration is 17 December 2018. As a last minute effort, there is a page on meta to decide who will be the representative of the user group to the Wikimedia Summit created.
