Swedish[edit]

Hi, these verb forms need to be wikified otherwise they will be deleted. See Wiktionary:About Swedish for more information. Mglovesfun (talk) 11:55, 21 May 2010 (UTC)

Pardon? As far as I can see, they are formatted the same way as any other verb form entry. Can you please point out exactly what is wrong? Hayden120 11:58, 21 May 2010 (UTC)
Ah right, I confused the edit summary with the content. Please totally ignore me. Mglovesfun (talk) 12:00, 21 May 2010 (UTC)
No worries. :) Hayden120 12:01, 21 May 2010 (UTC)

Old English[edit]

Hi, sorry but at present we do not include hard redirects in this way for Old English diacritics. Also, interwiki links are there to show the same character-sequence on other wikis, not the same "word". Both of these boil down to the fact that some languages (unlike OE) actually have diacritical marks as part of their orthography and therefore it's important to keep such pages separate. See also WT:AANG. Ƿidsiþ 05:39, 19 September 2010 (UTC)

Hm, okay. Considering the amount of variation in Old English spelling, I think we somehow need to link them to one page. Can you propose a better way to do this? Hayden120 05:42, 19 September 2010 (UTC)
Well, the variation in OE spelling is one thing: soft redirects can be used in these cases. But macrons were not used by the Anglo-Saxons – they are only used by modern editors, so we never use them for page titles. Ƿidsiþ 06:49, 19 September 2010 (UTC)
I know that the macrons were not used by the Anglo-Saxons, but what is wrong with redirecting sprǣċ to spræc? I did not create any Old English entries with macrons in the title. Hayden120 08:29, 19 September 2010 (UTC)
WT:REDIR, among other things, some macroned spellings are valid page names in other languages, such as Mandarin, Japanese, Maori or Nahuatl. Mglovesfun (talk) 08:53, 19 September 2010 (UTC)
Seriously... you are not going to find "sprǣċ" in any other languages. Even if it did exist in another language, the redirect page could be made into an entry. I do not think there is any harm in having a redirect if no entry exists. But mhm, okay. Hayden120 09:44, 19 September 2010 (UTC)
