Wikitionary?[edit]

hey, anyone coming here, if you know where i can find a wiki dictionary for english and/or spanish I'd be much obliged for the linkage... thanks!

There is not such beast as far as I know. There's been talk of starting a "Wikitionary", but no one's actually done yet. --Stephen Gilbert 15:26 Oct 1, 2002 (UTC)

That would be an interesting sister project but as Stephen says none yet exists. --mav

Well, I guess we'll have to keep looking or write a grant to get server space and an administrator to keep it running...

Wikitionary in existance since: Dec 12 2002

Hey, I tried to clean up the timeline at Vote so it was easier to read and realized I don't know what it's a timeline of. What does it mean when you include the qualifier "to stand for elections?" Does that mean in addition to the right to vote? What if the qualifier says "right to vote"? Also, what is your source? Myanmar was called Burma in 1935, and the FYR of Macedonia did not exist in 1946. I'm pretty sure Croatia, Uzbekistan, Krygyrztan and Kazakhstan did not exist at the time they're on your list as well. What are you referring to? The US is on in 1920, so you're obviously not referring to universal suffrage. You need to explain exactly what this list is talking about, because I had assumed it was universal suffrage.

Hi Dennis - re getting rid of vandalism: the easiest way is to bring up the edit history of the page in question, then view the last non-vandalised version of the page, and then click "edit this page". You can then save the old, non-vandalised, version without making any changes. Hope that makes sense (and helps). --Camembert


Hello, I just wanted to drop a note to let you know that there's a film & tv list serv at http://www.nupedia.com/mailman/listinfo/filmtv-l if you'd care to join. We (Zoe and Danny and Eclecticology & I) are using it periodically for fact-checking, etc. amongst each other. I notice you're interested in film. :-) --KQ


Hello. When you create a page, could you begin with a complete sentence rather than a dictionary-style definition, and highlight the title word or title phrase at its first appearance, like this. Thanks. Michael Hardy 00:35 5 Jul 2003 (UTC)

Also, please link more, even if the articles aren't there. It's silly to say how important a public library is to adult education but link to neither. The standard here is for heavy interlinkage. A printable version of each article is available for those who don't like the underlining everywhere. Thanks. EofT

And, please avoid plurals in titles, like educational philosophies. Why is this not simply educational philosophy? That too is a standard. EofT

The above nitpicking aside, your contributions are much appreciated and I hope you keep it up. Great work all 'round. Three issues you could help with:

I know I'll think of something more as soon as I hit "save"... hm. EofT


Dennis, do you think your new entry The History of the Standard Oil Company might be copy vio? Also, do you propose to do something like we already have at Standard Oil or concentrate on just one of the various companies with Standard Oil in the name? Moriori 00:31, Apr 9, 2004 (UTC)

Article Licensing[edit]

Hi, I've started a drive to get users to multi-license all of their contributions that they've made to either (1) all U.S. state, county, and city articles or (2) all articles, using the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike (CC-by-sa) v1.0 and v2.0 Licenses or into the public domain if they prefer. The CC-by-sa license is a true free documentation license that is similar to Wikipedia's license, the GFDL, but it allows other projects, such as WikiTravel, to use our articles. Since you are among the top 2000 Wikipedians by edits, I was wondering if you would be willing to multi-license all of your contributions or at minimum those on the geographic articles. Over 90% of people asked have agreed. For More Information:

To allow us to track those users who muli-license their contributions, many users copy and paste the "{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}" template into their user page, but there are other options at Template messages/User namespace. The following examples could also copied and pasted into your user page:

Option 1
I agree to [[Wikipedia:Multi-licensing|multi-license]] all my contributions, with the exception of my user pages, as described below:
{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}

OR

Option 2
I agree to [[Wikipedia:Multi-licensing|multi-license]] all my contributions to any [[U.S. state]], county, or city article as described below:
{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}

Or if you wanted to place your work into the public domain, you could replace "{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}" with "{{MultiLicensePD}}". If you only prefer using the GFDL, I would like to know that too. Please let me know what you think at my talk page. It's important to know either way so no one keeps asking. -- Ram-Man (comment| talk)

English disambiguation on User page[edit]

Homeschooling project[edit]

Hello, My name Master Scott Hall (you can call me Scott). I am relatively new contributing to Wikipedia, though I have been a user of it for some time. I am currently soliciting for interest in a Wikiproject that I have proposed on the subject of homeschooling. Before finding Wikipedia, my wife and I were seriously considering, but not quite convinced, to home educate our children.

After discovering the depth, scope, and long-term goals of Wikipedia, as well as the individuals driving it, I am convinced that WP has the potential to revolutionize homeschooling. I am also convinced that home education is the right choice for my family. I have, however, been somewhat discouraged by the oversight of home education in most of the education related projects on WP. There are many potential reasons for this discrepency, but I have resolved to try to do something about it.

Although I personally have very limited experience in building complex Wikiprojects, -templates, -portals, etc., I am confident that the right team can be assembled to tackle these issues. I would like to invite you to join this effort to make Wikipedia the resource for the home education of our children. If you are interested, please visits the temporary project page I have set up. Thank you --Master Scott Hall 08:49, 13 January 2006 (UTC)

Update: The proposed project on Homeschooling was met with a very positive response. As a result, the project has been ugraded to an official WikiProject and can be found at WikiProject Alternative education. We have several experienced Wikipedians on board, as well as some new faces. We still need contributors with backgrounds in education, education theory and philosophy, and specific alternative education methods, such as homeschooling, charter schools, and E-learning from both teacher and student perspectives. There is also a lack of quality resources regarding anti-alternative education issues. If are interested in contributing or just have an interest, please visit the project page, or if you prefer, ask us a question. Thank you again, Master Scott Hall 18:46, 18 January 2006 (UTC)

Answer to your question[edit]

I know you asked this question many years ago, but I posted an answer here. You probably already have the answer as well! Renee (talk) 19:20, 6 June 2008 (UTC)

Perennial Plants[edit]

Hi, I have reverted a couple of your edits that added "and is a perennial" to woody plants, trees in fact. Certainly they are perennial, but the term "perennial" is use in practice as a short-hand for "herbaceous perennial", so it is much more interesting to note plants that are perennial but not obviously as long-lasting as trees. Best wishes, Nadiatalent (talk) 15:02, 6 May 2010 (UTC)

Diagramming Tool[edit]

Hi Dennis, I noticed your question on the deleted Online_diagramming page, looking for a software that would allow you to work on diagrams like a wiki. At Creately we have such a tool and have it online as well as a plugin. And incidentally it also lets you upload your pics onto a larger digital map. Best of luck.
