Information about a change in the guidelines regarding delete votes » answer
by Paul (AT), 2016-06-27, 17:56  Spam?  
The basic rule in GL 3 is "Always confirm the first correct posting!". So far, when there was no completely correct posting, and someone voted for a deletion, this delete vote was the first correct posting, so it had to be confirmed. However, most of the contributors understood this differently or didn't want to comply with it, for reasons I understand. In the last months this rule was challenged several times, which caused a lot of discussions. In the end I came to the conclusion that the vast majority of the community wants less strict delete rules. After discussing some text suggestions (forum: #846903), the following rule was accepted and is now effective:

nouns {pl} » answer

Please see the guidelines, section 7, PLURAL / SINGULAR TAGS:
For nouns in languages without grammatical gender, such as English, Hungarian or Turkish, use {pl} and {sg} in the respective field to denote plural or singular if unusual or different from the grammatical number in the other language.

Thank you. I was familiar with that guideline. But the situation is that some contributors prefer to tag each plural noun with {pl}. I think it's clearer meaning of the word when the noun is tagged with {pl}.

As I mentioned, it is already common practice in Croatian dictionary. A few examples:

It also becomes a practice in Serbian:

The difference between written guideline and practice creates difficulties in voting and nonuniformity of the final translations. That's why I want to know the views of other contributors, and that we have one clear way of tagging.
