''Q''.新しいグリフをどうやって登録するの?
***I want to register a new glyph. How should I proceed?

''A''.まず、グリフの名前を考えてください。左の検索欄に考えた名前を入力して、既に存在するかどうかを調べます。存在しなかった場合、「問い合わせ」の右に赤褐色で入力した名前が表示されていますので、それをクリックしてください。赤褐色になっていない(灰色)場合、名前が適切ではありません。[[GlyphWiki:グリフに名前をつける]]を読んで考え直してください。

''Q''.「グリフ」って何?
Firstly, carefully consider the name of the glyph you want to. It may already exist within GlyphWiki, so please use the search field in the menu on the left to confirm that it has not been registered yet. If no entry exists with this name, the name you entered will appear as a red hyperlink right after the “You searched for:” message. Click this link to start editing the new entry. If a gray link appears, the name you have entered cannot be used, please be sure to read the “Naming new glyphs” article ([[GlyphWiki:GlyphNaming]]), and try altering the name you want to use.

''A''.グリフウィキでは「グリフ」とは漢字字形のことを指します。「フォント」といってしまうと、例えばJIS漢字の場合7,000字をまとめたもの(もしくはそのTrueTypeフォントファイル)のことを指します。グリフウィキでは、1字形(1グリフ)ごとに独立して管理します。「グループ」の記述を使えば、グリフを寄せ集めてフォントファイルを生成することができます。

***What exactly is a “glyph”?

''A''.グリフウィキはインターフェースをウィキペディアを参考にして作っています。その過程で、必要ないと思った機能や、完成を後回しとした機能については、現時点で灰色になっています。灰色の機能も含め、機能の追加のご要望がありましたら[[GlyphWiki:ソフトウェアへの要望]]に書いて下さい。

''Q''.登録したグリフ・グループ・ドキュメントを削除したいのですが。
Within GlyhpWiki the term '''glyph''' is used to indicate an individual kanji character's specific shape. The term '''font''' when used in the context of GlyphWiki, refers to a group of characters (such as the collection of the 7000 odd characters specified in the JIS kanji set) or its TrueType font file. At GlyphWiki, data is managed on a per-character shape (glyph) basis. If the '''group''' descriptor is used, a font file containing all the glyphs in that group can be automatically generated.

''A''.グリフウィキでは「データはみんなのもの」ですので、あなたが登録したデータであっても基本的に削除はできません。たとえばグリフデータとして「0:0:0:0」と登録すると、白紙として登録されます(もちろん履歴を見れば過去のデータを参照することは可能です)。「削除」の機能については、方針を含め検討中ですのでご意見がありましたら[[GlyphWiki:ソフトウェアへの要望]]に書いていただけると幸いです。なお、問題があると判断したグリフについては管理者側で削除することがあります。

''Q''.グリフウィキは誰が運営しているのですか?
GlyphWiki is built on the notion that “everybody owns the data”, so in principle it is not possible to simply remove contributions, even your own. Of course, previously entered data can be examined or recovered through that glyph's history. For example, if someone overwrites a registered glyph's data with “0:0:0:0” resulting in a blank page.

''A''.[[User:kamichi]]です。研究目的のボランティアでやっています。詳しくは[[GlyphWiki:グリフウィキについて]]や、[[GlyphWiki:プライバシー・ポリシー]]、[[GlyphWiki:あなたにできること]]をご覧下さい。
Currently, the addition of a proper “delete” function and the relevant policy for its usage are being considered. If you have an opinion on this topic you would like to share, feel free to leave your thoughts on the GlyphWiki software wish list (in Japanese: [[GlyphWiki:ソフトウェアへの要望]]) page.

I want to register a new glyph. How should I proceed?

Firstly, carefully consider the name of the glyph you want to. It may already exist within GlyphWiki, so please use the search field in the menu on the left to confirm that it has not been registered yet. If no entry exists with this name, the name you entered will appear as a red hyperlink right after the “You searched for:” message. Click this link to start editing the new entry. If a gray link appears, the name you have entered cannot be used, please be sure to read the “Naming new glyphs” article (GlyphWiki:GlyphNaming), and try altering the name you want to use.

What exactly is a “glyph”?

Within GlyhpWiki the term glyph is used to indicate an individual kanji character's specific shape. The term font when used in the context of GlyphWiki, refers to a group of characters (such as the collection of the 7000 odd characters specified in the JIS kanji set) or its TrueType font file. At GlyphWiki, data is managed on a per-character shape (glyph) basis. If the group descriptor is used, a font file containing all the glyphs in that group can be automatically generated.

GlyphWiki is built on the notion that “everybody owns the data”, so in principle it is not possible to simply remove contributions, even your own. Of course, previously entered data can be examined or recovered through that glyph's history. For example, if someone overwrites a registered glyph's data with “0:0:0:0” resulting in a blank page.
