Hmm...I don't buy that this article can only exist as a dictionary definition. It is a topic that is being researched! See for example, something like this. Albeit, we need more people to look at this article, but if it ultimately ends up as a dictionary entry, I suppose it simply means that the Wiki can't hold this information at this time. --HappyCamper 03:56, 23 July 2006 (UTC)

Right now, it reads as just a dictionary entry - which is why I tagged it as such... It is possible that it could be expanded to a good encylopedia article, but it would then need informaiton such as the history of slang dictionaries, examples of slang dictionaries, perhaps purpose and use of slang dictionaries etc. I won't revert the tag ... even though I feel it was perfectly valid (this time, I'll be 0RR, normally I'm about a 1RR) but I will tag it for expansion ... of course, you can delete that tag as well if you want :-) Brian 04:18, 23 July 2006 (UTC)btball

Hmm...well, I added the {{dict}} back in again. I was hoping that a bunch of Wikipedians would spontaneously jump to find all sorts of neat information for this one. It was quite fun when last time, about 5 Wikipedians did so for one of these articles. Maybe let's leave it as is, and whatever other people like to do with the article, that would be good too. I don't have the motivation right now to dig up the right sources to expand this article in a reasonable way, so for now, the Magic of the Wiki will have to wait (or fall on other Wikipedians). --HappyCamper 04:27, 23 July 2006 (UTC)
Thanks, yes, it does seem like this could be expanded into a cool article. I was just tagging it as what I saw, I hope you don't mind. It would be nice if one or more editors jump in and add enough information so that it's not just a definition / dictionary article. If I get the time I might see what I can turn up ... but I might be being pulled into an informal mediation (on a totally different topic) that could suck up my time - I'll see.

No, of course I didn't mind :-) On second reading, this article doesn't offer anything more than what "common sense" would be, and that isn't quite good enough. I think I might revisit this article too. --HappyCamper 04:39, 23 July 2006 (UTC)

At the end of last year I expanded this hopefully beyond a simple dictionary definition. There is plenty of room for further expansion and I am unsure the recent Transwiking was strictly called for and it might not make a great wiktionary entry but... (Emperor 10:47, 9 February 2007 (UTC))

I would like to try to add the word dilznakoff to the slang dictionary. How would I go about doing so? Dustyboots696 (talk) 16:24, 3 May 2017 (UTC)
