Name of article[edit]

There is a discussion on Talk:Liberal Party (Denmark) on moving that page to Venstre (Denmark). I suggest we follow that discussion and act for the Norwegian Venstre in the same way, so when the Danish party is moved, the Norwegian party should be moved to Venstre (Norway) Electionworld 07:03, 19 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Actually it even more important to move the material of this article, since there was another party (not Venstre) working with the name of Liberal Party in Norway and to aviod confusion with Liberal People's Party (Norway). --Soman 07:52, 19 Apr 2005 (UTC)

This article has been renamed as the result of a move request. violet/riga (t) 18:12, 9 May 2005 (UTC)

So why did User:Ssolbergj move this back to "Liberal Party of Norway" in 2007? There are zero references which support the claim that it is commonly called by that name in English. jnestorius(talk) 00:58, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

Venstre - The Liberal Party of Norway - SSJ  01:43, 19 June 2009 (UTC)
"The Liberal Party of Norway" would appear to be a description rather than a name, since the rest of the article refers to the party as "Venstre" rather than "The Liberal Party". OTOH, This list translates all parties and says "Edited from Aschehoug and Gyldendal's Norwegian Encyclopedia". I don't know whether the translation from Norwegian to English is done by Aschehoug and Gyldendal or the Norwegian Foreign ministry; nor whether the English names are decided by the relevant parties or the translators. This kind of thing needs to be properly sourced. jnestorius(talk) 18:07, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

1972 split[edit]

What happened to the people who split in 1972? Did they form any party? --Soman 08:02, 14 September 2005 (UTC)

They formed the Liberal People's Party (Norway, Old). --Wernher 16:50, 29 September 2005 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Venstre logo.svg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Venstre logo.svg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

What is the name of the Party?[edit]

The name of the party is not Liberal Party (Norway). What is the name of it, and how do Norwegians commonly refer to it (names, abbreviations, and nicknames)? Astounding that the article doesn't contain that absolutely basic information.CountMacula (talk) 21:29, 11 September 2013 (UTC)
