Do you think you could create an entry for ? Right now it is a redirect. 03:46, 21 January 2011 (UTC)

I’m a bit busy now, but if you want to try making it, I’ll be happy to look at it and fix it up.
If you’re up to it, take a look at (compare with ), and then make on the same model (from ). (The Unicode point is U+2EAE, at this page.) ガンバッテ!

typo fixed. —Nils von Barth (nbarth) (talk) 08:49, 5 March 2011 (UTC)

There's no hurry, and I asked you because I saw you had created that one. I trust you more than myself. 06:58, 21 January 2011 (UTC)

No worries – I’ll see if I can get to it when I’ve a bit more time.

Poll on formatting of etymologies

I would like to know your preference as regards the use of "<" vs "from" in the formatting of etymologies in Wiktionary, whatever that preference is. Even explicit statement of indifference would be nice. You can state your preference in the currently running poll: WT:BP#Poll: Etymology and the use of less-than symbol. I am sending you this notification, as you took part on some of the recent votes, so chances are you could be interested in the poll. The poll benefits from having as many participants as possible, to be as representative as possible. Feel free to ignore this notification. --Dan Polansky 10:49, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for the tip Dan – I’ve put in my 2¢!

Vote on formatting of etymologies

There is the vote Wiktionary:Votes/pl-2011-02/Deprecating less-than symbol in etymologies, which would benefit from your participation, even if only in the role of an abstainer. Right now, the results of the vote do not quite mirror the results of the poll that has preceded the vote. There is a chance that the vote will not pass. The vote, which I thought would be a mere formality, has turned out to be a real issue. You have taken part on the poll that preceded the vote, which is why I have sent you this notification. --Dan Polansky 08:27, 10 March 2011 (UTC)
