I see a lot of mentions, but uses are lacking. The alt forms need to be attested on their own. If this can be attested, the definition will have to be improved drastically. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 17:59, 19 April 2017 (UTC)

I found and added two uses with this spelling, but everything else I have found so far is clearly a mention. Can someone find a third? Kiwima (talk) 20:46, 19 April 2017 (UTC)
OK, found a third. It is cited. But the entry still needs cleanup. Kiwima (talk) 21:00, 19 April 2017 (UTC)
@Kiwima, very mention-y, but I agree that they pass, if we ignore the issue of initial capitalisation. Not enough to support any other spelling, right? Also, I have tried to write a new definition — does that seem right? —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 22:56, 19 April 2017 (UTC)
I was certainly unable to cite the alternate spellings, although I think we should give others a shot at finding supporting quotes before ruling them out. There is one cite on pan-en-deism, and the 2011 quote should probably be moved to PanEnDeism. I am inclined to let the 2017 quote slide, because initial caps somehow seem less of a variant than the camel caps. Kiwima (talk) 23:06, 19 April 2017 (UTC)
Quotations in the present article all look mention-y to me: they each try to explain what it means rather than simply using it to mean something. The Kastrup quote comes close, but I think that if one can hardly use it for its meaning without having to explain what it means then it is more in the nature of a protologism. ~ Ningauble (talk) 13:45, 26 April 2017 (UTC)
