Incorrect definition for 牽著

雅各   January 10th, 2011 7:31a.m.

How do you fix definitions for words in your word list. I really dont want to learn the meaning for 牽著 as what is written in skritter, it is just wrong according to both my paid dictionaries, and ccedict.

aah, it appears you can now edit definitions for words in the context of the study page. just not in the context of the editing a word list. Good enough (:

There's a nice built-in function for that:

Click on the definition, change it, check "shared as correction", enter.

one of those features that are hidden to improve usability

If you believe the skritter definition is wrong (and in this case it was), make sure to click the box to make it a shared correction after you edit the definition. If you're customizing the definition to make it better for your own learning purposes, don't check the box, of course.

Realize that the vast majority of words in our database are user-submitted. We try to review them soon after they're submitted, but if a mistake slips by us, please let us know.

You can edit the definition while making a word list. You have to save so you're not in editing mode, and then you can click the word, get the word popup, and click "edit definition" from there. Editing on the study page works too, of course.
