Liðar - Memberlist
Gruppar - Groups
Profíl - Profile
Sendirún - Message
Ríta inn - Register
Log þú inn/út - Log in/out

Does anyone have any better suggestions? None of these are definitely accurate Old Norse.

Liðar is just the Old Norse word for "members"
Gruppar is the plural form of Gruppr which is a word I made up which sounds like Group yet looks Old Norse...
I really need something much better for that.

Profíl is the same story... just a word I made up that sounds like Profile yet looks like Old Norse.

Sendirún is a blend of the modern Icelandic word "Sendibréf" which means letter and the Old Norse word "Rún" which means rune. Not sure what would be much better.

Please help.

Profíl is similar to the odern Faroese equivalent used online for profiles, which is "profil". Do you not have a ON word for group?

Profil would probably be better than Profíl... the accent is unnecessary... but also I think that we should be more creative than just pinching an already existing word...

Thanks for reminding me... I will change the buttons at some point, as Flokkar is groups in Old Norse. Smile
