Main Page and Hēafodsīde


Halló! Is this an Old English Wiki? It's a fascinating language! I wonder if you could tell me what the Old English word for Interlingua would be? I'll put the translation on the Interlingua page.

Thank you! Matt 03:04, 26 Blōtmōnaþ 2006 (UTC)

  • Halló! The most wiki's have a redirect from Main Page to
MediaWiki:Mainpage {{MediaWiki:Mainpage}} == "Hēafodtramet" .

The word entries are a bit random, we should have some sort of standardisation for it. Maybe examples and how to make entries? It'll be helpful in the long run. --Timoði Pætricus Snīðer 02:14, 9 Solmōnaþ 2009 (UTC)



Why are there full Gothic entries in this dictionary? I mean we could link it over to the Gothic Wikitionary, but let's not keep it here. Also, I'm going to need some help with parts of speech names here.

A Question


Hi, just wondering how I should mark vowel-length in the titles of entries (I use á, é, í, ó, ú, etc, within the article because it's easier to write with alt codes than it is to click on whatever letter I need, but I think that we need to set it so that we may only use 1 kind of length mark for the names in dictionary entries to make it easier to search for words.) Gott wisst 04:03, 1 Sēremōnaþ 2009 (UTC)Reply

I think we are still using the - over vowels. It allows you to add it on the bottom part of wiki. --Timoði Pætricus Snīðer (talk) 13:49, 6 Hærfestmōnaþ 2012 (UTC)

New Entries


Check my entries on cyning, cild, etc for new entries. It'd be nice to straighten out this dictionary. --Timoði Pætricus Snīðer (talk) 15:45, 26 Winterfylleþ 2012 (UTC)

It's nice to see some renewed interest in projects like this! I agree that we should straighten out this dictionary. Unfortunately, there hasn't been much activity here for a long while. PiRSquared17 (talk) 20:24, 27 Winterfylleþ 2012 (UTC)

Request for Adminship Made


Hello, everyone.

I just made a request for adminship on this Wiktionary, and so I just wanted to make sure that it has a good chance of actually being seen.

See Wiktionary:Requests_for_adminship.

If you want it to be seen, it might be better to mention it on ang.wikipedia too. Or have you? PiRSquared17 (talk) 23:23, 17 Mǣdmōnaþ 2013 (UTC)

Project Name and Namespaces


Hello, everyone.

I started a discussion on Wiciwordbōc's project name and its namespaces at Wikipǣdia. Note that I put it there since I mentioned things that concern both projects.

Renewal of Adminship


Hello, everyone.

As my adminship here is to expire very soon, PiRSquared17 nominated me for renewed adminship.

The request can be found here.

Wynn/W, Wiki/Wici, and *mōtung/*motung Equivalence in Namespace Names



Yesterday, I put in two requests.

The first one would make variants of "Wikipǣdia:", "Wikipǣdiamōtung:", "Wikiwordbōc:", and "Wikiwordbōcmōtung" with wynn and c all valid aliases, thus, as byspel, "Wicipǣdia:", "Ƿicipǣdia:" and "Ƿikipǣdia:" would all be equivalent to "Wikipǣdia:". All requested variants can be seen by clicking the aforementioned link.

The second one would make *mōtung and *motung equivalent in the core namespace names, thus, as byspel, "Bysenmotung:" would be equivalent to "Bysenmōtung:".

Share your thoughts at Wikipǣdie if you wish to do so.

Reneweal of Adminship (Again)


Hello, everyone,

Since my adminship expired again, PiRSquared17 has nominated me for renewed adminship a second time.

As usual, the nomination can be found on the dedicated request page.

Wiciwordbōc or Wiciwordbēc???


The main page says Wiciwordbōc (single) on the left panel and Wiciwordbēc (plural) on the welcome box. WTF??? 16:46, 26 Hrēþmōnaþ 2016 (UTC)

That's Old English for you. The spelling is terribly inconsistent. Nloveladyallen (mōtung) 13:14, 17 Gēolmōnaþ 2017 (UTC)Reply
