Restore removed sections?Edit

From Wikipedia:Naming conventions (geographic names) (section permalink) is a link to Wikipedia:WikiProject Norway#Naming. That section does not exist.

Looking at the history, it was removed in Special:Diff/267539604/270634715, a major and apparently undiscussed edit that moved some contents to transcluded subpages. Should we restore some of this or transclude some of it from a new subpage? Sam Sailor 08:47, 3 May 2019 (UTC)

Question & VerificationEdit

Hi all,

would please a Norwegian-speaking person verifiy if this edit ([1]) that the IP pushes is correct? Thank You(KIENGIR (talk) 17:27, 13 May 2019 (UTC))

Not correct IMHO. You can use "fører" in compound, non-political Norwegian words like "hundefører", just like you would use "Hundeführer" in German. You can also use Norwegian "fører" for the leader of a fascist or national socialist movement. The German and Norwegian words seem mostly equivalent to me. Regards, Kjetil_r 20:07, 15 May 2019 (UTC)
I agree with Kjetil_r. The noun fører can be applied in many circumstances, which makes it translatable in to a variety of different English words like leader, guide and driver. The latter is perhaps the first meaning that springs to mind for a Norwegian. It is for me at least, but I can't think of any word more suited for translating Hitler's title.

Kjetil r (talk · contribs) states it correctly. According to the NAOB there are at least 6 different usages of the word in Norwegian: Nsaa (talk) 06:33, 24 May 2019 (UTC)

Occupied television ratingsEdit

I need some help filling in the domestic television ratings for the Norwegian TV show Occupied. I managed to find some sources, but reached a dead end on others. Jay Coop · Talk · Contributions 09:21, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

I have been looking through the Norwegian news archive but unable to find any. Season 2 wasn't available on linear TV before May 2018, so you probably won't find any ratings for that season anywhere. --torstein (talk) 21:10, 10 June 2019 (UTC)
Thanks anyway for the help. I greatly appreciate it. Jay Coop · Talk · Contributions 21:35, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

Looking for a Wikipedian who can translate from NorwegianEdit

An editor contested a machine translation of a quote from a Norwegian website which I inserted into an article. Is there anyone here who can offer a proper translation? PCHS-NJROTC (Messages)Have a blessed day. 16:07, 22 June 2019 (UTC)

Draft:Forlagshuset Vigmostad BjørkeEdit

Hello -- Could anyone here help out with Draft:Forlagshuset Vigmostad Bjørke, which I recently saved from G13 deletion; the company has an article on the Norwegian encyclopedia [2] as well as on Nynorsk [3], but I am having trouble finding English-language free online sources. Thanks, Espresso Addict (talk) 06:08, 6 July 2019 (UTC)

Question about referencesEdit

This would normally something I would bring up at WP:RSN but since it deals with Norwegian, I thought better to come here first. Can anyone tell me if the following references would meet the guidelines for WP:RSes? Using this to determine notability for AfC submission (and future submissions). --CNMall41 (talk) 06:38, 10 July 2019 (UTC)

The first three are Norwegian newspapers (full names: Dagens Næringsliv, Dagsavisen, and Dagbladet, respectively), whereas the last hyperlink is merely the Norwegian-language version of Facebook. Accordingly, only the first three references can be used as regular/valid references in articles. Best regards, Annelingua (talk) 16:38, 24 July 2019 (UTC)
Fredriksstad Blad is actually the local newspaper of the city Fredrikstad. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2A02:2121:2C0:9FF5:C028:1C50:7BD4:7D9 (talk) 02:05, 25 July 2019 (UTC)
Thank you. --CNMall41 (talk) 20:04, 25 July 2019 (UTC)
All four references listed above are described in their own WP pages: Dagens Næringsliv, Dagsavisen, Dagbladet, and Fredriksstad Blad. They are all well established newspapers founded in the period 1869–1889. Best regards, KV (talk) 18:27, 31 July 2019 (UTC)

Home for Christmas (TV series)Edit

I started it, and it could use some norsk language sources if anyone is still around. Peregrine Fisher (talk) 16:53, 2 January 2020 (UTC)
