Bokareis added a comment to T124785: Deploy updated version of "Skeirs II" webfont (to not display Latin text in Gothic script anymore).

May I ask when this will be done?

That is correct. What I ment is that the version in Wikipedia needs to be replaced/updated with the current version on the website. So indeed updated.

I only agree with removing it if Old English and Latin get deleted too, otherwise the argument is flawed and discriminates between certain ancient languages.

Gothic has been disabled on translatewiki.net because it is a dead language.
The current Gothic translation in MediaWiki are a mess. In my opinion we should either delete them altogether or re-enable it on translatewiki.net to allow people to fix it.

Ok, about Font modification he says this, maybe AKlapper can translate it as his German is better than mine I think:
"Modifiziert werden kann der Font meinetwegen insoweit, als er in ein Web-taugliches Format gebracht wird. Modifikationen an den Buchstaben, die dann womöglich immer noch unter meinem Namen ausgegeben werden, möchte ich eigentlich nicht. "

He didn't really know how to mention it at first and where, I recommend that if you still have doubts that you contact him personally on his website by his e-mail mentioned there to verify it.

After discussing with dr. Pfeffer he made his Skeirs font available for free use, commercial too. He mentions this on his website, from what I understand, it's mentioned when you hover your mouse over the download, I can't check it due to my mobile, go to:

I am not a lawyer, but I think non-commercial is not good enough, we can only have fonts which use an actual free license.

Bokareis added a comment to T89554: Do something about Gothic translations.

Hello. I 'm the new administrator of the Gothic wikipedia and the reason why I became an administrator is because it was neglected and because too many people with a too bad knowledge of the language were managing it, I also contacted Nikerabbit about this problem. I have studied the Gothic grammar of Wilhelm Braune, Die Gotische Grammatik and I have read several parts in the Gothic grammar of Joseph Wright, I have also read parts in the Gothic Bible and I can read it quite well. First of all, the declinations and conjugations are often used completely wrong, the demonstrative pronoun which is only used in special instances as a definite article is always used as a definite article in the current interface and I would like to be able to remove these as scholars agree that the number of instances in which the dem. pron. was used as a definite article was quite low. Also compound words is one of the biggest problems, as I often see how words with a -ja stem having short syllables or long ones being turned into a compound word in the wrong way.
