BOT OWNERS
Nobody on this wiki has the ability to give a bot flag! There are no bureaucrats here. At most we can give you support for your bot flag.
We've got enough Interwiki bots to make our ears bleed, and only a few articles to actually use them on, but we will accept your bot, provided that it does not transform Gothic characters into XML entities. If it does and we catch it, we will ban the bot from edits. The issue with Interwiki links here is they really add so much markup that articles which are only a sentance long get displayed as the longest pages on the wiki, despite them not being that at all.

Installing the fonts[𐌹𐌽𐌼𐌰𐌹𐌳𐌴𐌹]

Great, you have to download and install the fonts. I did so for two of the fonts ... and then what? I cannot see anything but empty rectangles, yet. I tried with Opera, Firefox and Maxthon (IE) - neither of them works (all have been restarted before trying).

So what exactly does one have to do to read these pages? Please write to nibble.of.byte at gmail dot com.

In Windows 2000 / XP: Go to Start>Run, type regedit.exe, navigate to "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\LanguagePack" right click in the right part of the window, New>DWORD (or similar). Name the DWORD "SURROGATE" (without the quotes) and double click it and enter 2 as new value. Restart Windows. If a Gothic font is installed, Gothic should now work for most applications (if Internet Explorer doesn't work, try Mozilla Firefox, that works for me). To test, try copying some gothic text to notepad and setting the font to a Gothic font.
Hi I tried this and it doesn't work... any hints? (Running Windows XP) 198.54.202.242 12:51, 10 July 2005 (UTC) (Servien)
I've tried this too, but to no avail!!! :((( --84.114.144.54 12:58, 16 June 2006 (UTC)
In Linux, Surrogate Characters (used to write Gothic, 2 digital characters form one glyph) should work out of the box, and installing a Gothic font to ~/.fonts should do the trick, at least in GNOME / KDE distro's.
In Mac OS X, Surrogate Characters should just work, after installing a Gothic font.
In older versions of Windows, I have no idea, perhaps it is not possible because of bad Unicode support...
HarΓ°or 12:05, 18 May 2005 (UTC)
Thank you very much. I'm still unable to see Gothic, but now I know why: I am using Windows 98!
--84.160.254.145 06:41, 21 May 2005 (UTC)
Some people say they have made them work on Windows 9x [1]. I got a copy of the latest USP10.DLL and installed it but surrogates still don't work for me. It could be because other DLLs are required, recent DLL versions are flagged to disable the feature on Windows 9x, or the registry needs to be edited. It'd be helpful to see the discussion from the Unicode mailing list, but the archives are closed. G0th007
They now (after installing the latest version of USP10.dll) work on my Windows 98 computer, but only in Wordpad.--84.160.216.231 14:44, 11 October 2005 (UTC)
You're right, it works in Wordpad. This means somebody could make a browser plugin or Firefox extension to make surrogates work in Win9x if they could figure out what API issues are stopping them working with other programs. G0th007

Numeral policy[𐌹𐌽𐌼𐌰𐌹𐌳𐌴𐌹]

How should we handle numbers? At the moment, I use the Gothic glyphs representing the numbers (eg. 𐌴 = 5) but underlined and bold, like 𐌴 for 5 or 5th. What should be the policy for this? Roman, Western or Gothic numerals, and if Gothic numerals, how to put them apart from normal text to increase readability?

HarΓ°or 12:05, 18 May 2005 (UTC)

Hails HarΓ°or,
I think it is best to use Gothic numerals. I suggest using the Greek numeral sign after every single one. 𐌴ʹ for example is 5.


Hails HarΓ°or jah "Anonymu",
I think the best way to imitate the Gothic numeral system is to use Gothic glyphs underlined and with two numeral signs, as ʹ𐌴ʹ.--Meljands 18:09, 21 Jun 2005 (UTC)
I thought middle dots (U+00B7 MIDDLE DOT) are used for numbers, for example "·𐌴·" and "·𐌺𐌴·". +Hexagon1 (t) πŒ·πŒ΄πŒΊπƒπŒ°πŒ²π‰πŒ½ ·𐌰· 13:27, 9 June 2006 (UTC)

I don't know what you've been doing programming the gothic fonts. Further you don't seem to recognize gothic written diskussion (see "atta unsar - diskussion"). Fact is that your mutations cannot be seen in history by all users and that not only I but also other users mutating an article are not able to save the mutated text with the given script font - although it is correctly to be seen before saving.

Gothic?[𐌹𐌽𐌼𐌰𐌹𐌳𐌴𐌹]

Howcome nobody's conversing in Gothic here? I expected to fing a thriving community of fluent Gothic speakers here. Was this encyclopedia just set up because some goths thought it would be cool to have their own Wikipedia?

There's isn't many people who knows Gothic here. I think we're 4 to speak a bit and editing more than one time, and only one of us four speaks Gothic enough to discuss in Gothic -- Sajasazi 11:58, 24 January 2006 (UTC)

Counting the articles[𐌹𐌽𐌼𐌰𐌹𐌳𐌴𐌹]

Possibly, we should count a Gothic alphabet article and its Latin transliteration as one article, not two ones? The text in both of the articles is expected to be the same, only the alphabets used are different... Besides, I hope that Gothic Wikipedia will sooner or later get an automatic convertor from one graphic system to another (as in Chinese Wikipedia, where one can choose options for showing hieroglyphs either traditional or simplified), and in that case there will no longer be necessary to write separate articles in each of the alphabets. -- Alexander Gerashchenko 15:05, 15 February 2006 (UTC)

I think there is no good reason to be writing separate articles for each of the alphabets or writing the same thing twice, especially as the two copies will never be in sync. It should be easy to have an automatic transliterator like with the Chinese Wikipedia's Traditional <---> Simplified system, but someone who knows how to and has the access has to do it has to be found. There must be a place on meta.wikipedia.org to ask for help with this one. Addendum - Gothic runes should be supported too though it appears one minor letter is missing from unicode. G0th007

Ok, have just seen this after I finished below.
My suggestion was to add a tab β”Œ Gothic ┐ that calls, if clicked, the whole page again preprocessed by an algorhitm that could look as follows:
   latin->gothic (text)
     βˆ€ text[char]  c
       (c=('<','&')) β‡’   !convert
       (c=('>',';')) β‡’   convert             { exclude HTML and &...;}
       ((convert) ∧ ('a'≀c≀'z' ∨ 'A'≀c≀'Z'))
         β‡’ print('𐌰'-'a'+lowercase(c))
         ⇏ print(c)
I think this one should work fine.

A: Well I cant find any (WORKING) language pack for this if you find one you can just drag and drop the TTF/file in the in the font file in control panel (MOST OF THE TIME) some times its a lot harder for XP users you put the ZIPPED file in a new folder in C:(Folder Name Here) and extract the files in the folder keep the zip file and go in your fonts file click file in the upper left corner and click install new font file and when a pop up comes up look for the file you have your font/TTF/File in the C:Drive in the lower box you should see it in the upper box click on it and install it i should be working know if not find a simpler one to use or check if it has instructions.

Unicode again[𐌹𐌽𐌼𐌰𐌹𐌳𐌴𐌹]

No idea if this is a known problem, but searching in gothic doesn't work properly. I wasn't able to find out about where there exists a certain Lemma. Searching for πŒ³πŒ°πŒ½πŒ°πŒΌπŒ°π‚πŒΊπƒ returns no matches.

I can't help noticing that most subjects discussed here are installing unicode fonts and keyboard layout. I also can picture that entering the gothic wikipedia and seeing "?????? ???" in the first place would scare off most visitors. Wouldn't it be a better idea to have a latin version ("may be up to date") only while it is still half gothic half latin and let a script do conversions between latin and gothic for those who like it?

(Sorry if this was a revenant)

  • If searching in Gothic script does not work: On my computer Gothic letters show as little boxes containing SIX (not 4) hexadecimal digits. That shows that Chinese characters have hogged so much room in the 2-byte Unicode character space of 65536 characters that Gothic and other less-used alphabets have been pushed into the 3-byte Unicode character space; and the searcher likely only works with 2-byte characters.

Discarding the Gothic Alphabet?[𐌹𐌽𐌼𐌰𐌹𐌳𐌴𐌹]

Should we not discard the gothic alphabet in order to increase the productivity on this Wikipedia? I find it kinda obstructive to read and complicated to write. The Anglo-Saxon Wikipedia is not written in runes either and flourushing!

Actually, we're waiting for someone to make it possible to write either in gothic or latin alphabet. It only needs some time. And thanks to sign your messages. -- YadΓΆnapya 15:21, 2 October 2007 (UTC)
It isn't actually that hard to read if you chose the right font. I actually like the alphabet, and it's easier for me to write things in the Gothic keymap. The only real issue I've found with it is that the computer treats one letter as two characters rather than one, and you have to double backspace to erase words.
And Gothic isn't as popular as Anglo-Saxon nor as well reconstructed. There is a reason why we don't have a great flow of articles. Plus if you've ever used Rune fonts you'd see they display things terribly out of proportion, and it seems that most texts we've found are written in the Latin alphabet. --Jacques Pirat 01:58, 4 October 2007 (UTC)
Anglo-Saxon not using Runic script? Think again... ;) By the way, I wanna see some articles written here! Dont just let this wiki sit stagnant. Perhaps a good page about Wōden is in order. β€” Wōdenhelm 04:48, 25 Aftuma Jiuleis 2009 (UTC)

Association of the gothic language[𐌹𐌽𐌼𐌰𐌹𐌳𐌴𐌹]

Hey there, I have founded a few weeks ago the association of the gothic language in Germany. Its german Name is: Verein der gotischen Sprache n. e. V. It's an association to talk about gothic, to help with its developpment in discovering and at least to create a somehow neo-gothic that is complete in its grammar, applyable to the modern time and that one is able to talk freely and without any problems in it. To be part of this association you don't have to do much, just send me an email, that you want to join. Since the domicile is in Germany and most of the administration is in german, it should be needy, that you know at least a bit of german.

Gothic Wikipedia[𐌹𐌽𐌼𐌰𐌹𐌳𐌴𐌹]

This project isn't very active, most edits are done by bot users. With all respect, why does this wiki still exist (only 267 articles in almost 7 years and no fluent speakers)? I do respect people for studying this beautiful language, but unfortunately we know too little about the Gothic language to develop a full blown encyclopedia or being able to fully converse in Gothic, which is a shame, but a fact.

Servien, nds-nl is a Wikipedia in a language that isn't really a language, why does your pet project exist? I do respect you for pretending it's a language when it's not, but unfortunately it's not a language so we can't develop a full blown encyclopedia or converse in what's actually several very divergent dialects, which is a shame, but a fact. --Node ue 01:17, 24 πŒ·πŒ°π…πŒΉπŒΌπŒ΄πŒ½π‰πŒΈπƒ 2011 (UTC)
Hi there old friend :) fortunately the Dutch, German and Danish gouvernment and the European Union disagree with you. Second of all we have an active community which can't be said about this project. Servien 20:24, 25 πŒ·πŒ°π…πŒΉπŒΌπŒ΄πŒ½π‰πŒΈπƒ 2011 (UTC)
Hmm I can't find a single government or institution, or more importantly a linguist, who agrees with your silly notion that NL Low Saxon is a single language, and separate from DE Low Saxon. At least Gothic is a real, single language. --Node ue 08:22, 31 πŒ·πŒ°π…πŒΉπŒΌπŒ΄πŒ½π‰πŒΈπƒ 2011 (UTC)
Maybe it is time to change somethings here then. A few people have asked what right this wiki has to still exist. It is amazing that it has existed for so many years but a shame that the number of articles are so low. I would like to help out but unfortunately am I not that good at handle wikipedia. Can some one explain how to write articles with gothic alphabet? Then I will do some stuff here. Gadrauhts
Nds-nl is yet not a single language but still quite different to the rest of low german dialects. Even so are all west germanic languages not directly divided into single languages but into variations that work morely than dialects of a dialect kontinuum.
Gadrauhts, you are right. Maybe I'm gonna work here a little bit as well, so that this side could be protected from closing. But I still have personal problems with the font because it doesn't really look adequate and not really beautiful. We should maybe search for another one?!

WHAT??[𐌹𐌽𐌼𐌰𐌹𐌳𐌴𐌹]

Hello, I have a really big problem. Suddenly all the gothic scripture is away. But also the one font, not the one that is used for the mainpages titles like Waist thu. Is it only my computer that doesnt display them or has something happen with the wikipedia?? Zylbath 16:07, 20 πŒ°πƒπŒ°πŒ½πŒΌπŒ΄πŒ½π‰πŒΈπƒ 2011 (UTC

Change the name of the gothic Wikipedia[𐌹𐌽𐌼𐌰𐌹𐌳𐌴𐌹]

I must object to the choice of name of the wikipedia. Translitterated it is wikipedja and then for encyclopedia a word egkeiklopedja is used. First of all should it in my opinion be aigkeiklaupaidja in stead, and hence Wikipaidja in stead of Wikipedja. Secondly, I would strongly suggest another word for encyclopedia which is not a loanword. I do not have a great suggestion but something like "frodabokos" could be better. --Gadrauhts 21:00, 22 πŒ°πƒπŒ°πŒ½πŒΌπŒ΄πŒ½π‰πŒΈπƒ 2011 (UTC)

I will correct my previous suggestion. The word for encyclopedia should be "frodibokos". Since this is a word used in plural the sentence "the free encyclopedia" would be "Þos frijons frodibokos". Wikipedia would still become "Wikipaidja" with a more correct form. --Gadrauhts 16:56, 31 πŒ°πƒπŒ°πŒ½πŒΌπŒ΄πŒ½π‰πŒΈπƒ 2011 (UTC)

Hey, very interesting. Thank you. But could you turn the script into bold? And why are you using he form frodibokos instead of frodabokos as the gothic word list of the email list suggests? Zylbath 02:08, 27 πŒΎπŒΉπŒΏπŒ»πŒ΄πŒΉπƒ 2011 (UTC)
Yes I can change it to bold. But first we should agree if it is correct. I use frodibokos with i instead of frodabokos with a because I based this on the noun frodei wisdom. I suppose the form with -a- is based on the adjective froΓΎs wise. I think wisdom-book is better than wise-book. As far as I have found out, feminine in-stems get -i- as compound vowel. E.g. marei + kreitus > marikreitus. Gadrauhts 14:44, 2 πŒ°π†π„πŒΏπŒΌπŒ° πŒΎπŒΉπŒΏπŒ»πŒ΄πŒΉπƒ 2012 (UTC)
Okay, thanks for the explanation. That sounds totally logical and I agree. I haven't found any other mistakes, but I am not the best gothic speaker.

Goal for got.wikipedia[𐌹𐌽𐌼𐌰𐌹𐌳𐌴𐌹]

Should we put up some goals perhaps for the gothic wikipedia? At this momemt we've got 275 articles which makes us number 247 just after Ewe and befor Hausa. I would say we can reach at least 300 articles this year. That wouldn't make us pass number 245 (Min Dong) but maybe give us a chance to do that next year. Note! There is no purpose of its own to spit out articles. They should have substance and quality (rather quality than quantity). /Gadrauhts 15:35, 19 πŒ°πŒΊπ‚πŒ°πŒ½πŒΌπŒ΄πŒ½π‰πŒΈπƒ 2011 (UTC)

This goal seems possible. In the moment I have very much to do, but if that is going to be less, I can do more on this wikipedia. I think that we can reach the 300 mark at the end of the year. ;)

I have a biiig demand for the admins, to unprotect the main page. The main page is totally not up to date and you, the admins, are almost not present. I would like to work on the main page. Thank you. Liufos goleineis, Zylbath 08:42, 20 πŒ°πŒΊπ‚πŒ°πŒ½πŒΌπŒ΄πŒ½π‰πŒΈπƒ 2011 (UTC)

Deletion of articles[𐌹𐌽𐌼𐌰𐌹𐌳𐌴𐌹]

How come the numbers of articles keep decreasing all the time? Some days ago there were 279 but now they are only 277. Does someone delete articles?? If so, which ones and why? Gadrauhts 08:39, 24 πŒ°πŒΊπ‚πŒ°πŒ½πŒΌπŒ΄πŒ½π‰πŒΈπƒ 2011 (UTC)

If someone would delete articles, that would be showed at the page "Aftumistos maideineis". Your problem is the cache of your browser. It saves the page for being possible to display it faster if you open it again. But then the number doesn't change or sometimes has a different number. You could either delete the cache or click Reload. If nothing helps click on Change at the haubidaseido and then just save. This won't be shown in the aftumistos maideineis but will reload your number of articles. ;) Liufos goleineis, Zylbath 16:06, 24 πŒ°πŒΊπ‚πŒ°πŒ½πŒΌπŒ΄πŒ½π‰πŒΈπƒ 2011 (UTC)

Article titles[𐌹𐌽𐌼𐌰𐌹𐌳𐌴𐌹]

We must agree on a standard for the titles of our articles. Shall they be written in gothic, latin or both alphabets? A lot are written gothic/latin but I prefer the system of only gothic. To make this work there should hence be created a site with the same title but written in latin which is redirected to the mainarticle. So if I write π…πŒΉπŒΊπ‰ in the search field I come to the mainarticle but if I write Wiko I get redirected to π…πŒΉπŒΊπ‰. The system of π…πŒΉπŒΊπ‰/Wiko should in my opinion not exist at all. / Gadrauhts 11:59, 5 π…πŒ΄πŒΉπŒ½πŒΌπŒ΄πŒ½π‰πŒΈπƒ 2011 (UTC)

I totally agree with you. This is why I already changed some. The gothic alphabet isn't the hardest and the language is Gothic here and it is written in Gothic, so the articles should be that way. So, if ever you get confronted with such sides, please change them. Liufos goleineis, Zylbath 14:56, 6 π…πŒ΄πŒΉπŒ½πŒΌπŒ΄πŒ½π‰πŒΈπƒ 2011 (UTC)
By the way, no article with such double names is directly foundable by typing in just one part, either the gothic or the latin writing. You always have to look at the related pages where it mostly stands, but that's no solution since this is not how wikipedia has to be.

Fonts[𐌹𐌽𐌼𐌰𐌹𐌳𐌴𐌹]

I currently have several Gothic fonts installed on my PC (Windows 7, Firefox) and don't want to uninstall any of them. At the moment, Gothic texts are displayed in my browser using a small-ish "serif-style" font which I find hard to read. Does anybody know how I can get Firefox to use another allready installed font (Skeirs) instead?

I've tried Google, but to no avail. Help would be appreciated. Torana, 22:58, 25 π…πŒ΄πŒΉπŒ½πŒΌπŒ΄πŒ½π‰πŒΈπƒ 2011 (UTC)

How to type in Gothic with Linux (directly without needing websites or software)[𐌹𐌽𐌼𐌰𐌹𐌳𐌴𐌹]

I decided to build a linux Gothic Keyboard Layout, here are instructions:

First you have to download ibus, once you have ibus, you can do the following:


Go to this link to download got and put it in a folder which you can remember:

http://roel.tengudev.com/Neo%20Gothic/download_keyboard_layout.php

Change got.txt to just got, remove .txt


Now follow these instructions:


1. Open a terminal window, log in as superuser. You can do this by typing: su Enter your password and you have privileges now. Type this command, in which [directory of downloaded file] is the folder in which the file is downloaded: cp [directory of downloaded file]/got /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/

Now it's added to your keyboard layout files.

3. keep your terminal window open and type: gedit /usr/share/X11/xkb/rules/evdev.xml

Search for </layout> and choose one, directly after this copy this text :

        <layout>
        <configItem>
          <name>got</name>
          <shortDescription>got</shortDescription>
          <description>Gothic</description>
          </configItem>
          </layout>

Save it.

4. type

       gedit /usr/share/X11/xkb/rules/evdev.lst

Type search and look for German, use the space key and add this under German:

 got             Gothic

Save it.

5. type

          gedit /usr/share/X11/xkb/rules/xorg.lst

Do exactly the same as in step 4.

6. type

       gedit  /usr/share/X11/xkb/rules/evdev.xml

Do exactly the same as in step 3.

7.type

        gedit /usr/share/ibus/component/simple.xml

Search </engine> and directly after </engine> paste:

    <engine>
    <name>xkb:got::got</name>
    <language>got</language>
    <license>GPL</license>
    <author>Roel</author>
    <layout>got</layout>
    <longname>Gothic</longname>
    <description>Gothic</description>
    <icon>ibus-keyboard</icon>
    <rank>99</rank>
    </engine>


8. type

   gedit /usr/share/X11/xkb/rules/base.xml

Search for: Filipino (Dvorak Baybayin) and directly after </layout> paste this:

     <layout>
        <configItem>
          <name>got</name>
          <shortDescription>goth</shortDescription>
          <description>Gothic</description>
      <languageList>
         <iso639Id>got</iso639Id>
       </languageList>
        </configItem>
      </layout>

now type

   gedit /usr/share/X11/xkb/rules/base.lst

Search for German and under German paste this:

        got             Gothic


9. Now you should be able to fully use the Gothic keyboard.

This isn't directly related to the Gothic wikipedia, but indirectly it is. If you want to practice your Gothic or speak it with others, you can go to this IRC channel with mibbit:

http://client00.chat.mibbit.com/?server=irc.AccessIRC.Net&channel=%23gutiskachat

If you want to use another chatservice you can visit it with:

server: AccessIRC channel: #gutiskchat

I post it at Wikipedia because a lot of Gothic speakers and enthousiasts are here and if you want to practice Gothic in order to write Wikipedia articles, it's very hard to find a place for it, so I created one here.

Gothic version of Wikipedia?[𐌹𐌽𐌼𐌰𐌹𐌳𐌴𐌹]

Hello, I see that before you log in into Wikipedia, you can choose a language for Wikipedia, the current languages are German, English, Esperanto, French, Spanish, Italian and Dutch. Is there some place where we can request a translation in Gothic and work on that together? Bokareis (talk) 20:21, 5 π…πŒ°π‚πŒΌπŒΌπŒ΄πŒ½π‰πŒΈπƒ 2014 (UTC)

Is this correct in the main page?[𐌹𐌽𐌼𐌰𐌹𐌳𐌴𐌹]

I read: πŒΌπŒ°πŒΉπƒ 𐌸𐌰𐌽 1000 πƒπŒ΄πŒΉπŒ³π‰πƒ, but I have learnt that in Gothic grammar in a comparison it is said: πŒΌπŒ°πŒΉπƒ 1000 πƒπŒ΄πŒΉπŒ³π‰πŒΌ, so: bigger 1000 dative + noun, instead of using the word 'than' in between. Is it also usual for Gothic to use than? Bokareis (talk) 23:07, 13 π…πŒ°π‚πŒΌπŒΌπŒ΄πŒ½π‰πŒΈπƒ 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for your attention. Do you have a source for that? Maybe my German came too much through it. 77.188.135.220 13:45, 17 π…πŒ°π‚πŒΌπŒΌπŒ΄πŒ½π‰πŒΈπƒ 2014 (UTC)
My source (but I found another one too) is 'Elementair Gotisch', a Dutch book which teaches the basics of Gothic, written by J.W. De Vries.

The other source which I found is here: http://www.oe.eclipse.co.uk/nom/letters.htm

If you look up 'than', you will find:

than thau; "it is better for thee...than" goth thus ist...thau; Or just use the dative: "mightier than me" swinthoza mis.

This means that if you use a dative form, you can say -er without using than. Thus, saying: πŒΌπŒ°πŒΉπƒ 1000 πƒπŒ΄πŒΉπŒ³π‰πŒΌ should be correct too.

I also read in some place 𐌲𐌹𐌱𐌰𐌽, when it was about a quantity of something. I know German too and this is common use in German, es gibt ein Mann hier, which literally is: 'it gives a man here', but the word 'to give' can only be used in German like this, not in English, Dutch, French, Swedish (as far as I know). I recommend to change 𐌲𐌹𐌱𐌰𐌽 to π…πŒΉπƒπŒ°πŒ½. Bokareis (talk) 22:01, 17 π…πŒ°π‚πŒΌπŒΌπŒ΄πŒ½π‰πŒΈπƒ 2014 (UTC)

Just for intereset: Can you cite the part in your book? I am not quite sure whether it only applies to personal pronouns. About "giban" you are totally right, in the new words section we made up: πŒΈπŒ°π‚ πŒΉπƒπ„/πƒπŒΉπŒ½πŒ³ ... But I can't find it right now on the main page? Zylbath (talk) 23:09, 17 π…πŒ°π‚πŒΌπŒΌπŒ΄πŒ½π‰πŒΈπƒ 2014 (UTC)
No, it was somewhere else.

About the cite, you can find it in the part of the book about comparatives. This website however also explains it and is written by academics:

http://www.utexas.edu/cola/centers/lrc/eieol/gotol-4.html

   The dative case is used in conjunction with a comparative to denote the standard of reference or comparison, as denoted by the Modern English 'than'. For example, swinþō mis 'mightier than me'.

That might be easier than lending this book specially for this purpose. 84.26.254.29 18:22, 18 π…πŒ°π‚πŒΌπŒΌπŒ΄πŒ½π‰πŒΈπƒ 2014 (UTC)

Voting for a new article on the frontpage[𐌹𐌽𐌼𐌰𐌹𐌳𐌴𐌹]

Where is this possible? Moonspell has written a very good article. Bokareis (talk) 22:51, 21 π…πŒ°π‚πŒΌπŒΌπŒ΄πŒ½π‰πŒΈπƒ 2014 (UTC)

Some heavy changes which I will make[𐌹𐌽𐌼𐌰𐌹𐌳𐌴𐌹]

I see that a lot of articles don't correspond to the native Gothic grammar, which was an ommitive language regarding personal pronouns with verbs. This is simply wrong so I remove all the personal pronouns which are used together with verbs.

I want to revive Gothic, but in order to do that one big source where Gothic is used, Wikipedia, should correspond to everything we know about native Gothic. What we know is that they didn't use personal pronouns in accordance with verbs, as the verb already made clear what the personal pronoun was, just as Spanish. So I will see if I can contribute by changing this in existing articles. Bokareis (talk) 20:14, 25 πŒ·πŒ°π…πŒΉπŒΌπŒ΄πŒ½π‰πŒΈπƒ 2014 (UTC)

Why is there a Gothic article with mistakes at the mainpage? Bokareis (talk) 21:29, 25 πŒ·πŒ°π…πŒΉπŒΌπŒ΄πŒ½π‰πŒΈπƒ 2014 (UTC)
'Wikipedjos in aljam razdam' should be: 'Wikipedjos in razdom aljam', because Gothic places the adjective after the noun and because razda is an o-stem, not an a-stem like used here. Can this please be changed?

Also it still says: mais ΓΎan 1000 seidos. A way to translate more than is: managiza ΓΎΓ‘u, another way could be: mais 1000 seidom. The grammar is incorrect too:

π…πŒΉπŒΊπŒΉπ€πŒ΄πŒ³πŒΎπ‰πƒ πŒΈπ‰πŒΆπŒ΄πŒΉ 𐌷𐌰𐌱𐌰𐌽𐌳 πŒΌπŒ°πŒΉπƒ 𐌸𐌰𐌿 100000 πƒπŒ΄πŒΉπŒ³π‰πƒ

This is SVO I believe, Gothic was SOV so it should become something like:

π…πŒΉπŒΊπŒΉπ€πŒ΄πŒ³πŒΎπ‰πƒ πŒΈπ‰πŒΆπŒ΄πŒΉ 𐌼𐌰𐌽𐌰𐌲𐌹𐌢𐌰 𐌸𐌰𐌿 10000 πƒπŒ΄πŒΉπŒ³π‰πƒ 𐌷𐌰𐌱𐌰𐌽𐌳

And I see: Seidon sokjan aΓ­ΓΎΓΎΓ‘u meljan. May I ask why what 'seidon' means, is this in a special case? The plural of 'seido' is 'seidos', as used in a lot of places here.

Font partly changed to a very nice font![𐌹𐌽𐌼𐌰𐌹𐌳𐌴𐌹]

Hey you guess,

For me Wikipedia suddenly displays bold text at pages with a very nice and read-able font. Do you also experience this? Bokareis (talk) 22:51, 19 π†π‚πŒΏπŒΌπŒ° πŒΎπŒΉπŒΏπŒ»πŒ΄πŒΉπƒ 2014 (UTC)

Hmm, I am having a script similar to Ulfilas by Robert Pfeffer since quite a long time. When I came here in the first place I had a very bad font where the top of every letter was cut. But since I have the new Unicode I have it displayed quite well. It is not exactly the same as Ulfilas but kind of similar, something between Ulfilas and Skeirs. But I don't know what font it is exactly. Kevin Behrens (talk) 11:24, 20 π†π‚πŒΏπŒΌπŒ° πŒΎπŒΉπŒΏπŒ»πŒ΄πŒΉπƒ 2014 (UTC)
I think that I have this font which you are talking about, but I can't change it for some reason. Linux standardly gives you a crap-font for Gothic which makes it very difficult to read a Gothic text. It's sadogolthina or something like that.

Please test VisualEditor in your language![𐌹𐌽𐌼𐌰𐌹𐌳𐌴𐌹]

VisualEditor-logo.svg

It is very important to us at the Editing Department that VisualEditor works in every language, for every user.

VisualEditor's editing environment is a browser ContentEditable element. This means that your input method editor (IME) should already know how to work with it. However, to make VisualEditor correctly edit wiki pages, we have to stop browsers in lots of ways from breaking the page.

Sometimes this can interfere with IMEs. To make sure we work in your IME, we need your help: please see wikimedia.github.io/VisualEditor/demos/ve/desktop-dist.html#!pages/simple.html. This is the core system inside VisualEditor which lets you write and edit. It is different from the full editor, and some of the tools you are used to will be missing.

We're interested in particular in whether you can write text at all, what happens when you select different candidate texts, and how VisualEditor behaves in general.

More details, and some early test results, are provided here: mediawiki.org/wiki/VisualEditor/IME_Testing#What_to_test.

We would love to hear from every language, and especially languages which use IMEs, like Japanese, Korean, Indic languages, Arabic and others. Thank you for your help.

Yours,

Content Translation, the new article creation tool is now available as a beta-feature[𐌹𐌽𐌼𐌰𐌹𐌳𐌴𐌹]

Tool icon
How to use Content Translation - a short video (English)

Hello, Content Translation has now been enabled as an opt-in beta feature on the Gothic Wikipedia. To start translating:

  1. Please enable the Beta feature in your preferences by checking the box for Content Translation.
  2. Visit the page Special:ContentTranslation or to your contributions page to open the tool.
  3. Click on the button to create a new translation.
  4. In the displayed dialog select the language of the original article and the article name, and the language you would like to translate to. Also add the title of the new article (or the original title will be inserted) and click on to begin. Your language preferences will be remembered for the next time.
  5. You will see a screen consisting of three columns. The first column contains the text of the source language and the middle column is for the translated text. Using the third column you can perform several actions such as insert source text, remove the inserted text source text, add or remove links etc.
  6. After you translate the article, you can publish it directly as a new page on the Gothic Wikipedia by using the publish button that appears. In case the article gets created by another user while you were translating, you will see an option to save the newly published translation under your user namespace.
  7. The number of published pages can be seen on the Content Translation stats page.

Since this is the first time we have installed the tool on this Wikipedia, there are chances that there may be some problems or service disruptions which we are not yet aware of. We will be monitoring the usage to check for any failures or issues, but please do let us know on the Content Translation talk page or through Phabricator if you spot any problems. For more information, please read the information available in the User Guide. Our announcement is written only in English, and we would really appreciate if this message can be translated to reach more users of this Wikipedia. Thank you.

Please join the 2nd edition of the VisualEditor Translathon[𐌹𐌽𐌼𐌰𐌹𐌳𐌴𐌹]

VisualEditor-logo-pacifico.svg

Hello!

I'm pleased to announce the 2nd edition of the VisualEditor Translathon.

It is a translation rally, focused on interface messages and help pages related to VisualEditor. In order to participate, you need to sign up on the Translathon page on TranslateWiki.

The top 3 contributors will each win a Wikipedia t-shirt of their choice from the Wikipedia store[1]. Translations made between July 15th and July 19th (CDT time zone) qualify[2].

If you are at Wikimania Mexico this year, you are also welcome to join a related sprint during the hackathon in Workplace 1 - Don AmΓ©rico, Thursday 16 July at 4pm (CDT) at the conference venue, so you can meet other fellow translators and get support if you need some.

Interface messages have the priority. You will need to create an account at translatewiki.net in order to work on them, if you don't have one. It is recommended to create the account ASAP, so that it can be confirmed in time.

You can also help translate documentation pages about VisualEditor on mediawiki.org. You can use your Wikipedia account to work there.

You will find instructions, links and other details on the Translathon page.

Thanks for your attention, and happy translating!

  1. ↑ You can choose between any short-sleeve shirt, or other items for the same value.
  2. ↑ This means both new translations, and updates for messages in the "Outdated" tab of the translation interface.

Haubidalaufs?[𐌹𐌽𐌼𐌰𐌹𐌳𐌴𐌹]

Hello, why is the name of the haubidaseida changed to haubidalaufs? What is -laufs supposed to mean here?

The visual editor is coming to this wiki[𐌹𐌽𐌼𐌰𐌹𐌳𐌴𐌹]

Norwegian-road-sign-110.0 (fluorescent).svg

Hello. Please excuse the English. Please help translate to your language. Thank you!

Hi everybody,

My name is Erica, and I am a Community Liaison at the Wikimedia Foundation. I'm here to let you know that the visual editor is coming to editors at this Wikipedia soon. It allows people to edit Wikipedia articles as if they were using word processing software.

You don't have to wait until the deployment to test it; you can test the visual editor right now. To turn it on, select "πŒ±πŒ΄π„πŒ°" in your preferences. Choose "VisualEditor" and click save. When it is enabled, you will press the "Edit" button to edit an article in the new software. To use the wikitext editor, you can press "Edit source".

After the deployment, everyone will automatically have the option to use either the visual editor or the current wikitext editor. For more information about how to use the visual editor, see mw:Help:VisualEditor/User guide.

More information about preparing for the visual editor is posted here.

Thank you, and happy editing! --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 18:29, 5 π†πŒ°πŒΉπŒ±π‚πŒΏπŒ°π‚πŒ΄πŒΉπƒ 2016 (UTC)

Reminder: the visual editor is coming to this wiki soon[𐌹𐌽𐌼𐌰𐌹𐌳𐌴𐌹]

Twemoji 23f0.svg

Hello again. Please excuse the English. Please help translate to your language. Thank you!

This is a reminder that the visual editor is coming to all editors at this Wikipedia soon. As of this writing, the team is not aware of any issues specific to this language that should prevent the new software to be deployed here; therefore, please do let us know if you find any problems instead. You can report issues in Phabricator, the new bug tracking system or on the central feedback page on MediaWiki.org. There is a short guide at mediawiki.org that you can follow (as if it was a "checklist") to learn about the community work necessary to adapt the visual editor, and its referencing system in particular, to your community's needs.

If you can translate from English into this wiki's language, or know anyone who can, please follow the links below, as this language still has 0% progress in translations (0% or slightly above, for interface messages). You'll help your community get the best possible experience when it comes to interface messages and documentation related to the visual editor. After you click on any links, your language should be available from the drop-down menu on the right. Once you've selected it, you'll see the document in English side by side with any translation work already done in your language. You can add new translations or modify existing ones. The interface is hosted at https://translatewiki.net; you'll need an account if you never translated there before. The user guide lives at Mediawiki.org, for which you can use your regular Wikipedia account. You're welcome to contact me personally whenever you need help.

Thank you for your cooperation, and happy editing! --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 16:34, 26 π†πŒ°πŒΉπŒ±π‚πŒΏπŒ°π‚πŒ΄πŒΉπƒ 2016 (UTC)

The visual editor will be enabled on this wiki in some days[𐌹𐌽𐌼𐌰𐌹𐌳𐌴𐌹]

Hello again. Please excuse the English. Please help translate to your language. Thank you!

As per previous announcements earlier this year, the visual editor (VisualEditor) will be enabled at this Wikipedia in some days. It allows people to edit articles as if they were using a typical word processor. Here's a quick explanation of what is going to happen: you can find a more detailed one, with pictures, at mediawiki.org.

Side by side screenshots, showing the visual appearance of both editing systems
What's changing?
In the new system, you get a single edit tab which follows your preferences, and that therefore will launch the wikitext editor or the visual editor depending on which one you opened the last (Remember my last editor).
This applies to everyone who edited recently, including anonymous users.
How do I switch to the other editor then?
Buttons on the toolbars of both editors were added months ago so that you can switch from one to the other every time you want to, without losing your changes and without having to save first.
The button, located on the right side of the toolbar, looks like square brackets ([[ ]]) in the visual editor, and like a pencil (OOjs UI icon edit-ltr.svg) in the wikitext editor.
Are there other options available?
Yes. You can choose whether you want:
  • Always give me the visual editor if possible (if you temporarily switch to the wikitext editor through the button on the toolbar, the system won't remember it; also, it only applies to namespaces where the visual editor is available).
  • Always give me the source editor (if you temporarily switch to the visual editor through the button on the toolbar, the system won't remember it)
  • Show me both editor tabs (a system in place at multiple wikis since 2013. You are familiar with this option if you have been using the visual editor here.)
    • Please note: all the users will always have the opportunity to switch to the other editor via buttons on the toolbars, for occasional edits.
How do I set my preference?
  • If you want to try or to stay in the new system: you don't need to do anything.
  • If you had explicitly disabled the visual editor in the past and want to keep it disabled: you don't need to do anything.
  • All the registered users have a dropdown menu in the Editing tab of their Preferences (Editing --> Editing mode:), where they can choose from. This only needs to be done once. Don't forget to save ;)
    • Users with the visual editor disabled need to re-enable it if they're interested in accessing that menu!
  • People who use the visual editor regularly will see a pop-up (only once after the single edit tab system is introduced), and they can choose their favorite setting there. Of course, they can change their mind at any time just like the others, and pick a different setting from their Preferences.
    • Anonymous users who have used the visual editor recently will also be able to choose which editor they want to edit with.
    • Reminder: all the users will always have the opportunity to switch to the other editor via buttons on the toolbars, for occasional edits.
Final remarks
  • Please spread the word about this major change in any way that you deem appropriate for this community, by linking to this announcement elsewhere, putting up a site notice, etc. Please note it will affect all the registered users at first, and after some days it will reach logged-out contributors as well if no major technical issues have arisen. Don't hesitate to ask questions, I'll be around for a while to help!
  • Please do let us know about any anomalies you think you're experiencing, and do post any other feedback below. I'd like to thank everyone who works to make the transition easier for this community, and whoever will help me processing feedback in your language.
  • You can learn more about optimizing the visual editor experience here by reading a guide on mediawiki.org.

The visual editor is now active here[𐌹𐌽𐌼𐌰𐌹𐌳𐌴𐌹]

Hello again. This message is only available in English at this time: Please help translate to your language. Thank you!

As some of you have noticed, this Wikipedia now has the visual editor (VisualEditor) enabled for all registered users. The rollout to logged-out users will likely happen in a week or so.

For an explanation of how the editing system now works and how to choose/go back to your favorite setting, please see my previous announcement above. If you wish to change your editing system preferences now, this can be done from this link to your Preferences --> Editing --> Editing mode:.

All edits using the visual editor will be tagged with "Visual edit" in recent changes, watchlists, and page histories. To access the User Guide for the visual editor, click on the "(?)" icon in its toolbar.

Please let us know if you find any problems. You can report issues directly in Phabricator, the new bug tracking system or on at mw:VisualEditor/Feedback; by all means, feel free to also ping or contact me directly if you prefer. In case of emergency (like an unexpected bug causing widespread problems), please contact James Forrester, the product manager, at jforrester@wikimedia.org or on IRC in the #mediawiki-visualeditor channel.

PS: Are you seeing interface messages that are not in this wiki's language? Please fix this by providing translations here. Translations may be also provided for the user guide. Please contact me if you want guidance in contributing translations!

Just a heads-up that rollout of the visual editor on this wiki is now complete. Please refer to my previous messages for details. You can read the "checklist" that was written to help communities like yours in their process of adapting the visual editor to their customs and needs.
