Open questions[edit]

(moved from the article, question raised 11:32, 11 September 2006 by Purodha)

  • Since the wording of both narrower and broader terms is ambigous, there should be an explanation as to what they mean. My guess is: the currently selected DM already on the page is a narrower/broader as shown in comparison to the DM selected in the dropdown box at the right for a specific expression. (But I have no reason to assume to be guessing right)
  • Also: Do relations relate DMs? In other words: is the expression typed during the process of creating a relation indeed not kept?
Relations relate DMs. GerardM 19:12, 11 September 2006 (CEST)
An example: a broader term of analytical chemistry is chemistry which broader term is science.
A narrower term of science is chemistry which has a narrower term analytical chemistry.
As this relates to the DM's this is set for all languages, for instance of your default language is German:
engere Begriffe Wissenschaft > Chemie > analytische Chemie.

The relation "broader" and "narrower" Term needs to be explained to the editor on the edit screen, otherwise the edit screen remains ambigous, even more so, once it becomes translated. --Purodha Blissenbach 15:17, 26 November 2006 (CET)

Update needed?[edit]

Section "Modifying the first Definition"

  • Paragraph 1: I think (and hope) we now allow modifying the first definition. We've done that several times already, and we have the outofsync template to use.
  • Paragraph 2: Mark the problem by adding a {{Attention|<comment>|DefinedMeanings}} to the talk page of the English Expression. We now add that to the DefinedMeaning talk page, don't we? Kipcool 23:17, 23 November 2006 (CET)
Please change it. (PS. I modified the above by adding ). HenkvD 14:05, 24 November 2006 (CET)
