King's Guard typoEdit

The words below the picture of the penguin Nils Olav in the featured pictures section says the "Kings Guard" instead of the "King's Guard". I don't know how to fix this. May someone fix it? Tlonedyr (talk) 21:42, 15 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Norwegian Folklore & storiesEdit

I am not very satisfied with the norwegian folklore content on Wikipedia. I'm of norwegian descent and would like to learn more about the legends, culture and such of norway, and folklore is a good way to learn about any culture, really. who agrees?

Hessdalen Lights - misclassified?Edit

Hi - I laughed when I saw it's listed under paranormal. The phenomenon appears to be explained rationally now - and it's directly linked to geology of the area and mining. So the article could use some new classification. I haven't updated anything yet - I don't really know the subject. There's a link to the research on the talk page. Comments, edits welcome. Feel free to ping. Thelisteninghand (talk) 22:27, 17 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Request for someone familar with Norwegian sources regarding something that Norway's supreme court ruled on?Edit

I was hoping that there might be some sort of news coverage that isn't a primary source like this, a blog, or Bitter Winter (which is considered unreliable on the perennial sources list), which seems to be what comes up when I search for this in English. But apparently this is something that Norway's supreme court has ruled on (specifically that they have the right to practice disfellowshipping) but that they are also losing their funding as a registered religious community. This seems like the sort of thing that should have some sort of independant and reliable coverage in Norweigan, so I was hoping maybe someone could verify that for me?

I guess the supreme court issue might be this. There is some more about losing funding and possibly getting deregistered here. All in Norwegian, but you might get something out of it with a translation service if you can't read that. Some words might be hard to translate, though.

The order of the monuments is not well understood and, so as not to risk making a mistake, I don't intend to change the order of the monuments (for information: I left the order unchanged; I only corrected the wikilinks and explained the order better, but it is the same order: Oslo.

Project-independent quality assessmentsEdit

Quality assessments by Wikipedia editors rate articles in terms of completeness, organization, prose quality, sourcing, etc. Most wikiprojects follow the general guidelines at Wikipedia:Content assessment, but some have specialized assessment guidelines. A recent Village pump proposal was approved and has been implemented to add a |class= parameter to {{WikiProject banner shell}}, which can display a general quality assessment for an article, and to let project banner templates "inherit" this assessment.

No action is required if your wikiproject follows the standard assessment approach. Over time, quality assessments will be migrated up to {{WikiProject banner shell}}, and your project banner will automatically "inherit" any changes to the general assessments for the purpose of assigning categories.

However, if your project has decided to "opt out" and follow a non-standard quality assessment approach, all you have to do is modify your wikiproject banner template to pass {{WPBannerMeta}} a new |QUALITY_CRITERIA=custom parameter. If this is done, changes to the general quality assessment will be ignored, and your project-level assessment will be displayed and used to create categories, as at present.

Lists of municipalitiesEdit

We have List of municipalities of Norway and List of municipality numbers of Norway, which would seem to be ripe for merging, but apparently not, per this discussion. Can the latter page be merged into List of former municipalities of Norway instead? Something really should be done. The current situation is… suboptimal. - dcljr (talk) 16:56, 3 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Strictly speaking, it can't be merged into List of municipalities of Norway because it contains historical municipalities, and it can't be merged into List of former municipalities of Norway because it contains non-historical municipalities (although not all). It could be split into a list of current municipality numbers and a list of historical municipality numbers, and then have each of those merges into respective list of municipalities, but that would be suboptimal if you don't know if the number you want to look up is historical or not.
What exactly is the problem with List of municipality numbers of Norway? The fact that it is not updated? That people end up there instead of List of municipalities of Norway when wanting to look up numbers that are definitely current and therefore having to dig through a bigger list? (At the moment, people are more likely to have historical numbers as numbers are being changed quite frequently.) Something else? It is not like Wikipedia has no room.

At the very least, the list should be updated, which someone tried to do last year and got reverted. See Talk:List of municipality numbers of Norway#Why not updated?, which I just created, and comment there, if you wish. - dcljr (talk) 01:13, 10 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
The list should not be updated, because it is a valuable tool for historical research in Norway. I have proposed a renaming to eg. "List of municipality numbers of Norway (1837–2017)" and then anyone should be welcome to keep another updated and regularly maintained list of current municipalities. But please let us keep the list as it is. The 1947 division is the "gold standard" for historical purposes.

Like I said, this can be discussed on that other talk page. Your objection is not a valid one, as I explain in my reply there. - dcljr (talk) 00:27, 11 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
