OE Declension Templates

For the Old Frisian declension templates I've adopted a different approach by just showing the gender in the header at all times. Like in {{ofs-decl-noun-a-n}}. Would that be better?

Sounds all right to me.

I just remembered, if you're going to make the template titles just like the Old Frisian ones, you might as well make it so that the gender parameter for Template:ang-decl-noun displays things like (masculine); currently, it just displays whatever is fed to the gender parameter, so you could put something absurd like mochi ice cream and get (mochi ice cream) in declension tables that use that template. So yeah, ideally, feeding m to that template would result in (masculine), f (feminine), and n (neuter).

I've changed that now, but that template would not be needed very often as there are templates for all the standard declensions.

True, but it might as well be done.

Edit: Hmmm, ah it has indeed been done. I thought the template's page was on my watchlist... and it wasn't...
