On Proto-Norse ᚴᚢᚦEdit

Hi, I noticed you added a Proto-Norse section to ᚴᚢᚦ using the Skåäng Runestone text as a citation. However, judging from that Wikipedia article, the Proto-Norse part of that inscription consists only of the Elder Futhark harija leugaz; the rest is said to have been added in Younger Futhark during the Viking Age and thus would represent an Old Norse text, thus not counting as attestation for Proto-Norse. (A 6th century Swedish text representing a Christian burial would hardly be expected anyway: Scandinavia was still solidly pagan in that period.) If my thinking is indeed correct, my next question would be: are there any attestations of the term that are indeed from the Proto-Norse era which might be used to support a Proto-Norse entry? — Mnemosientje (t · c) 12:49, 14 June 2019 (UTC)

@Mnemosientje: That's a mistake on my part; I'll convert it to just Old Norse. Anyways I did a quick search through the Runenprojekt database, which only has Proto-Norse inscriptions, and the only things relating to "god" were from *ansuz. Julia 21:43, 14 June 2019 (UTC)
Alright, that solves it. Thanks for checking! — Mnemosientje (t · c) 12:24, 15 June 2019 (UTC)

Jacob etc.Edit

I think derivations from a name within one and the same language are usually treated as derived terms rather than descendants, just like how other words are treated (diff). ←₰-→ Lingo Bingo Dingo (talk) 09:02, 18 June 2019 (UTC)

Admin II: electric boogalooEdit

Now you and I both know that "I definitely won't have any time for Wiktionary" was a big lie. Would you like to go for it again? Equinox 15:53, 24 July 2019 (UTC)

@Equinox: Not a lie per se, just underestimated my ability to procrastinate via Wiktionary and still get my schoolwork and everything else done. Anyways I’d like the admin tools, so I’ll go for it. Julia 18:59, 24 July 2019 (UTC)
