We make a point to preserve all discussions that were started here in the archives.

However, talk that is clearly not intended for this page may be moved and will not end up in the archives. An editor (@Sgconlaw) likes to place into image captions descriptions of representing objects such as paintings, engravings and the like. I oppose having a description of the representing object (painting, engraving) even in the note created via . Wiktionary is a dictionary and its images and captions should help learn about the referents, or in some cases about character strokes.

This information is conveniently in one place, I don't have to click through to Commons, wait for the page to load and then scroll through the page to find that information.

This is the place where many a historic decision has been made and where important discussions are being held daily.

If you have a question about fundamental Wiktionary aspects—that is, about policies, proposals and other community-wide features—please place it at the bottom of the list (click on ), and it will be considered.

Articles about the specific places and people belong in Wikipedia."In this revision, in my browser, the caption is almost two times as tall as the image itself, and it forces definitions to wrap to a next line before the end of the page.

And strictly speaking, these tidbits are not useful in the sense in which a knife or a fridge are useful (and definitions, if you are a translator); it just fuels idle curiosity.

--Dan Polansky (talk) , 1 April 2018 (UTC) Wiktionary is not a print dictionary; space is not an issue.

From Wiktionary: Criteria_for_inclusion#Wiktionary_is_not_an_encyclopedia: "Care should be taken so that entries do not become encyclopedic in nature; if this happens, such content should be moved to Wikipedia, but the dictionary entry itself should be kept.

¶ Wiktionary articles are about words, not about people or places.

I just want our entries to "get to the point", which is offering lexicographical information.
