Maidstone[edit]

Hi Tokle. I have long since expected to find a placename derivation to have one simply strightforward explanation! The BBC talk about 'maidens' in their derivation, and most others seem to follow the same argument. If you are suggesting 'Great Hill' I suppose we should then look to see if we can find the hill so used. Maidstone, of course, stands on a ridge and not a hill: so ancient folk (if the derivation comes from them) must had have some height along the ridge in mind or sight when naming the town, I should have thought. Where does your derivation come from? Peter Shearan 18:16, 13 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Sorry but my only reference book doesn't reveal the Roman name - if there was one. Lots of Roman artefacts found around there of course and the Roman road passed through: you would think that the Romans , of all people, would have had a name for it!! Peter Shearan 16:53, 14 Jun 2005 (UTC)
Does this reference help at all? Peter Shearan 17:28, 21 July 2005 (UTC)

Help with maps?[edit]

Hei, I've seen you've uploaded some maps on Commons detailing the unification of Norway. Would you be willing to make one or more illustrating Sverre I of Norway? That would be really helpfull Fornadan (t) 15:04, 20 August 2005 (UTC)

The borders during the civil wars were never well-defined, and they were constantly changing. Trying to trace the minute alterations to the borders of the territories controlled by Sverre at any given time would be too grand a task for me right now. I can create a map positioning the place-names mentioned in the article, would that be what you had in mind? --Tokle 19:21, 22 August 2005 (UTC)

A location map was what I had in mind yes. To increase readability the place names should probably be enlarged bit though, and perhaps the background red somewhat lighter.

As for editing on the Norwegian wiki, don't think so, not in any major way at least. The internationality of the English wiki is what appeals the most at the moment. Fornadan (t) 08:45, 23 August 2005 (UTC)

Album infobox 2 deletion debate....[edit]

Just so you know, the album infobox 2 template (which you inserted into The Beatles' albums) is now being considered for deletion. I like the style and am against the deletion. But I figured you may want to weigh in. Here's the link: [1].

Voting[edit]

Γεια σου — ειμαι καλα, ευχαριστω... και εσυ;

There's no set number, different admins having different cut-off points. The rubric at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion reads: "Your opinion will be given the most weight if you are logged in with an account that already existed when the nomination was made. Unregistered and new users are welcome to contribute to the discussion, but their recommendations may be discounted, especially if they seem to be made in bad faith (for example, if they misrepresent their reasons)." Because we have so much trouble from sock-puppets, many Wikipedia regulars note very new editors for the closing admin's attention (I seem to remember it happening to me when I first started editing). --Mel Etitis (Μελ Ετητης) 22:22, 14 October 2005 (UTC)

Infobox 2 proposed for deletion[edit]

You managed to get your comment up before I could alert you here. I can't answer the question about a redirect myself; I don't recall seeing the suggestion in the original debate. Monicasdude 20:55, 16 December 2005 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

blue flowers

I just wanted to let you know that your initiative on integrating that {{Click}} function in album infobox 2 is greatly appreciated. It's great when users take a bold and proactive approach to the 'pedia, and it always puts a smile on my face. Flowers for everyone who makes me smile :) --Qirex 11:09, 20 December 2005 (UTC)

Region?[edit]

We need to review the terms used for various types of regions of Norway, esp. the current erroneous term "landscape", but also landsdel and tettsted. See for instance Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Norway#.22Landscape.22. -- Egil 16:09, 11 January 2006 (UTC)

Fair use images in discographies[edit]

To be honest, I can't remember any of this new policy actually making its way to the albums project page. (Is it there? I can only assume it's not if you can't find it.) Since nothing has changed since the last discussion, I think it's an issue of the editors not knowing, and none of our usual patrollers having found it yet. –Unint 20:32, 27 March 2007 (UTC)

Vikings tarot deck[edit]

Diamond-caution.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Vikings tarot deck, because another editor is suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page. Also, please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. If you agree with the deletion of the article, and you are the only person who has made substantial edits to the page, please add {{db-author}} to the top of the page. B.

London Meetup - January 12, 2008[edit]

Invitation to Wikipedia meetup in London[edit]

Wikimedia UK logo

Date: 13:00 onwards, Sunday 10 August 2008

Venue: Penderel's Oak pub, Holborn WC1 map

More information: Wikipedia:Meetup/London 12


Hello,

I noticed that you have listed yourself as a Wikipedian in London, so I thought you might like to come to one of our monthly social meetups. The next one is going to be on Sunday 10 August, which might well be rather short notice, but if you can't come this time, we try to have one every second Sunday of the month.

If you haven't been before, these meetups are mainly casual social events for Wikipedia enthusiasts in which we chat about Wikipedia and any other topics we fancy. It's a great way to meet some very keen Wikipedians, but we'd also love for you to come along if you're interested in finding out more about Wikipedia, other Wikimedia projects, or other collaborative wiki projects too.

The location is a pub that is quite quiet and family friendly on a Sunday lunchtime, so hopefully younger Wikipedians will also feel welcome and safe. Alcohol consumption is certainly not required!

Although the meetups are popular, many UK-based editors still don't know about them. It would be great to welcome some fresh faces, so I hope you can come along.

Yours,

James F. (talk) 09:27, 3 August 2008 (UTC)

Please forgive the slightly impersonal mass-invite!

Speedy deletion nomination of Huntjov[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Huntjov requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a very short article providing little or no context to the reader. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content. You may wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles - see the Article Wizard.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag - if no such tag exists then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hangon tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you.

Margaret as heir presumptive to the throne of Norway?[edit]

Hello! Do you have any source to support your claim that Margaret, Maid of Norway, was heir presumptive to the throne of Norway? I find it rather dubious but I could be wrong. Thanks. Surtsicna (talk) 16:34, 18 May 2012 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Eystein Halfdansson, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Norse.
