Hereby I am pleased to announce that VinQuettaParma, the new NeoQuenya and NeoSindarin wiktionary, is up and running.
The whole thing is very much a work in progress, so please keep that in mind. Only the framework is ready (and even that will need tweaking as we go along). The design of the site can also change in the future (if I find a DokuWiki theme that is more appealing, or I tweak the design myself).
For the moment I am the only one who can create user accounts (to prevent spambots from trying to register); so if you'd like to become an editor, please contact me in private.

I have also created our first entry to show you the format I had in mind. Thus, each entry would have the following sections:

{part of speech}: noun, verb, adjective etc., and the gloss of the entry
Tags: the syntactic and semantic categories the entry belongs to
Etymology: an explanation of how the neologism was formed
Attested Analogues: attested words that have a similar syntax or have been used as a model
Alternatives: attested words or other neologisms that are synonymous or are of interest
Creator: the person who created the neologism

Of course some sections may remain empty,  but at a minimum the part of speech, etymology, and tags sections should be complete.

You can find the first entry under NeoQuenya Vocabulary - V - vilwiste.

Please have a look around (there's not much to see yet of course) and comment. I hope what you see will please you.

Ké karelmes, eke men mai karitas.

start [VinQuettaParma]
VinQuettaParma (VQP) is a community-maintained wiktionary of NeoQuenya and NeoSindarin neologisms, coined words, and phrases. It is intended to be a resource for anyone wishing to author or translate texts in NeoQuenya and NeoSindarin, or use the language in discussions etc.

I have now also created a template for the entries: every time you create a new page under the NeoQuenya Vocabulary section, the framework decsribed above is loaded automatically and the editor just has to fill in the actual data (and/or delete the unwanted bits).

Great. Though it's not available from the main page; onle by search.
I think collecting entries in a list form at NQWiki won't hurt either.

+Ицхак Пензев
what is not available from which main page please?
If the community prefers to keep this as a simple wordlist I can simply delete the entries and the whole wiki will be one single page:) Just let me know.

Tamas Ferencz Jun 27, 2014 (16:32)

OK I have figured it out and fixed it. Sorry. Vocabulary now available from main page.

+Kevin B Walsh just send me an email and I'll create your account.
You can use any source - it is a wiki after all, if the other users don't like the entry they can always comment or edit it.

Are you going to be adding the Sindarin section? It currently doesn't seem to exist.

Tamas Ferencz Jun 29, 2014 (13:25)

+Jenna Carpenter it is there now, just waiting for editors to go in and start creating entries
