Stad Ship TunnelEdit

I went to add a couple details to this article and it turned into a decent expansion. Could somebody more knowledgeable than me take a look and see how it looks? Thanks (talk) 20:31, 22 April 2021 (UTC)

@VikingDrummer: no worries, it was interesting actually. (talk) 15:13, 1 May 2021 (UTC)

Source for date of death for Inger Marie AndersenEdit

Hi all. I am currently working on expanding Deaths in 1995 by adding and sourcing all articles in Category:1995 deaths. I managed to slightly expand Inger Marie Andersen by using the Historical Dictionary of Scandinavian Cinema. However, I can't find a source in English that verifies her date of death. Deaths in 1995 is organized by the day people die, and I would really like to add her to the list. If anyone is able to locate a source (perhaps in Norwegian?) it would be helpful. Please ping me if you are able to locate something useful. Thank you.4meter4 (talk) 13:55, 15 June 2021 (UTC)

Rock art articles, anyone?Edit

Hello. I'm helping some friends in my Trøndelag neighbourhood and county council administration in their project Bergkunstreisen (The petroglyph trail). I've promised to expand some Wikipedia articles in norwegian about 10-12 rock art sites, and also help them find similar volunteers in en:wp and de:wp who could be of assistance in creating the same articles in english and german. Either by translating my articles from no:wp, or writing new, independent texts.

So far, articles no:Bølareinen and no:Helleristningene i Kvennavika are finished at GA-level in norwegian, and available for translation. The next article will be no:Helleristningene på Evenhus within some weeks.

My friends have also told me that they have some history books (mostly in norwegian) available as gifts to those who are willing to help, if that might be of interest. Bw --Orland (talk) 22:30, 17 November 2021 (UTC)

I am willing to look into expanding the article on Rock_carvings_at_Vingen as well as expanding and translating the article on nn:Ausevika during the Christmas holidays. --Pilum (talk) 12:45, 24 November 2021 (UTC)
Hello, Pilum. That would probably be interesting and valueable. However, the project Bergkunstreisen is fixed to 14 destinations / rock art sites in Trøndelag. The three mentioned above, and then some of those mentioned in Rock carvings in Central Norway: Bardal, Hell, Leirfall, Stykket. Bw, --Orland (talk) 15:38, 24 November 2021 (UTC)

List of municipality numbers of NorwayEdit

Can somebody please look at the Talk page for List of municipality numbers of Norway and move this list per the suggestion to eg. List of municipality numbers of Norway (1837–2017)? I had to revert a massive edit today, and I can understand that a current list is desirable. But the historical 1947 numbering is still important in a lot of contexts, and I'd hate to see it go from Wikipedia. Besides, the new county structure is still not settled, and may be broken up again.

Women in Red translation contest: April to June 2022Edit

At the beginning of April, WikiProject Women in Red is launching a three-month translation contest focused on increasing our coverage of women's biographies. As the Norwegian version of Wikipedia is one of the more popular sources for translation, members of WikiProject Norway may be interested in participating.--Ipigott (talk) 09:14, 26 March 2022 (UTC)

List of honours of the Norwegian royal family by countryEdit

Could someone from this WikiProject can check the date format being used throughout List of honours of the Norwegian royal family by country? Multiple date formats are being used and some of them are not really OK per WP:BADDATE. I'm not sure if Norway uses a particular format, but that would be the one to use throughout the article per MOS:DATEUNIFY. -- Marchjuly (talk) 02:45, 19 April 2022 (UTC)

Help with an article?Edit

Hi! I've managed to establish notability for the film 5 Lies, but it looks like there's more out there about the movie. If not reviews, then at least coverage of the director apparently having a melt down when his film wasn't a hit. I'm kind of butchering the translations here since I'm using Google Translate - can someone help search for sources and flesh out the article? I'm trying to do what I can, but I feel like I'm not getting all that much with a US Google search. ReaderofthePack(formerly Tokyogirl79) (。◕‿◕。) 14:00, 26 April 2022 (UTC)

User script to detect unreliable sourcesEdit

I have (with the help of others) made a small user script to detect and highlight various links to unreliable sources and predatory journals. Some of you may already be familiar with it, given it is currently the 39th most imported script on Wikipedia. The idea is that it takes something like

  • John Smith "Article of things" Accessed 2020-02-14. (John Smith "[ Article of things]" ''''. Accessed 2020-02-14.)

and turns it into something like

It will work on a variety of links, including those from {{cite web}}, {{cite journal}} and {{doi}}.

The script is mostly based on WP:RSPSOURCES, WP:NPPSG and WP:CITEWATCH and a good dose of common sense. I'm always expanding coverage and tweaking the script's logic, so general feedback and suggestions to expand coverage to other unreliable sources are always welcomed.

Do note that this is not a script to be mindlessly used, and several caveats apply. Details and instructions are available at User:Headbomb/unreliable. Questions, comments and requests can be made at User talk:Headbomb/unreliable.
