>I think English grammar (and other changes from Old English other than wordstock) never would have simplified remotely as much as it did without Norse, so it would be better to just learn and speak Old English than do Willsome English. How do you respond to this?

Firstly, I don't know of any instance where Norse itself simplified English so if you have any examples please let me know because this would be beneficial to our project. As of now, we look at Norse words. Secondly, we take the approach of repairing English today with what we know is voluntary and involuntary. To go back to Old English would be to dump a lot of change, even voluntary ones. Furthermore, our philosophy isn't "What if England had never been invaded", it's knowing that English today is full of loanwords and serves as an alternative to it that only reverts what's known to be involuntary (whether it be the wordstock, Carolingian script, or sayings).

The Anglish Miraheze as an Anglish Knowledgebase[edit]

Would you please reconsider allowing this domain to be used as the main knowledgebase for the Anglish community as it once was, instead of as an Anglish version of Wikipedia? As it stands, the Anglish 'Wikipedia' project does not seem to have taken off, with only 9 articles written in the years since it was started. The knowledgebase project, on the other hand, has been VERY active for years now, but we've been forced to use alternate domains, like I believe it'd be helpful to the community as a whole if we could agree to bring the knowledgebase back to this primary domain, with the primary name and spelling that we all know the project by.

If you're willing, would you please appoint Hurlebatte and myself as bureaucrats, and allow us to migrate the articles back over?

Why? I thought you had a separate domain name for the other site. Regardless, I still don't understand where the lack of interest in writing non fiction comes from. And I can't tolerate the spelling system that doesn't have unvoiced and voiced velars/palatals treated as parallel systems. TimeMaster (talk) 02:35, 18 January 2023 (UTC)
