What is this template for? Why not just use Template:osx-conj-wk2? —CodeCat 16:54, 21 July 2013 (UTC)

I don't want reconstructed forms to appear in verb class categories like . -- 16:56, 21 July 2013 (UTC)
Then why not modify the template so that it works that way? You don't need a whole new template for that, that is just wasteful and you end up duplicating most of it. See what I have done to Template:osx-verb and Template:osx-conj-wk1. —CodeCat 17:04, 21 July 2013 (UTC)
I didn"t know... can you help me fix so that reconstructed strong verbs don't appear in normal verbs categories? -- 15:37, 23 July 2013 (UTC)
It's ok, everyone has to start somewhere. Sometimes people may assume too much, and I know I do too. I've modified that template now, I hope it works. Also, you can use {{osx-verb}} on reconstructed pages as well, I've made similar modifications to it. I notice that you are editing without a registered account. That's not a bad thing, but it makes it easier for other people to communicate with you if you register, because then your IP address won't change all the time. It also makes it easier for us to tell which edits were made by you, in case we get confused and think you're several different people. If you have any more questions, feel free to ask me on my talk page. —CodeCat 15:50, 23 July 2013 (UTC)
Oh, another thing. I noticed that you created the page *dwīnan with a macron in the page name. We don't really have any rules about this yet, but I think it's preferable if reconstructed entries are written with the same spelling conventions as the words that are written in real texts. So is it ok if I move that page to *dwinan? —CodeCat 15:53, 23 July 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for everything :) sorry I forgot to log in, I'm Stardsen ;) it will be easier then. I think it is more logic that reconstructed entries have macrons when we are sure the vowel was long^^ I assume that we don't accept macrons for words that are found in text because in these texts they didn't have any accent, but as these entries weren't recorded then I think it is more logic to put directly the macron, like it is done with Proto-germanic, a whole reconstructed language^^ I don't know, what do you think? I don't really mind if you moved the macrons, but when I did these pages I thought it would be more logic... -- 22:00, 23 July 2013 (UTC)
I'm logged in under the pseudo Stardsen now, you can answer here: --Stardsen (talk) 22:01, 23 July 2013 (UTC)
