Faroe Islands Question[edit]

I have been researching the Faroe Islands, just cause I think the country is really really neat and quite beautiful. Since you are from the Faroe Islands, I am hoping you could answer a question for me. While checking out a couple sites on the country, one directed me to American website wunderground.com for weather information and I saw that the daylight there was 24 hours long. This struck me as odd since it is south of the Arctic Circle. My question is does the Faroe Islands experience 24 hour daylight in the summer and 24 hour darkness in the winter? Thanks...NeutralhomerTalk • 22:10, 11 July 2010 (UTC)

Answer: Hello. In midsummer we have daylight for many hours, but we don't have midnight sun like they have in Iceland and Northern Norway. The sun goes down at around 22 or 23 and rises again a couple of hours later, at around 2 or 3 in the morning. It does not get dark at all, but it is not daylight either. In December it is the opposite, we almost don't see the sun at all, but it is not completely dark. The sun rises around 10 and the sunset is around 15. There are some really great sunrises in late november and in December, the sky can get all pink or orange, beautiful. On cloudy days in December and January it doesn't get really light at all. In villages which have a mountain to the south the sun is so low on the sky, it doesn't rise above the mountain. I live in Vágur in Suðuroy, the people who live down by the sea don't see the sun from late November to late January. I live a bit up on a mountain, and we see the sun a bit longer for a few hours in the morning, but at 11 or noon the sun goes behind a mountain on the southern side of the fjord. EileenSanda (talk) 22:12, 15 July 2010 (UTC)

Wow, that is really cool. I would love to see some of those sunrises in the November/December days, I bet the sunsets are equally pretty. Thanks for answering my question, I have a better understanding of the sunrises and sets in the Faroe Islands now. :) Take Care...NeutralhomerTalk • 23:14, 15 July 2010 (UTC)
You could have a look at this photo which I have uploaded on Flickr http://www.flickr.com/photos/eileensanda/4114076939/ I took this photo on 18 November 2009 just before sunrise, or this one http://www.flickr.com/photos/eileensanda/4091107530/in/set-72157622646676431/ from 9 November 2009. Or this photo http://www.flickr.com/photos/eileensanda/4228117205/in/set-72157622646676431/ which is a sunrise seen in Tórshavn, the sun rises in the south at this time, I took this photo on 26 December 2009. EileenSanda (talk) 23:39, 15 July 2010 (UTC)
Wow, those are amazing shots. I definitely like the first how the light bounces off the clouds with the pinks and oranges and even a little purple. That is great. :) I will definitely give a look at your other pictures too. I can't comment (don't have a Flickr account) but I am looking. :) - NeutralhomerTalk • 23:47, 15 July 2010 (UTC)

Hi[edit]

Hi Eileen. I noticed the good work you've been doing on the Faroese football articles. I just wanted to let you know about a recent change i've made on the Rógvi Jacobsen article, about the "won caps" and "played Caps". The reason someone had wrote 'won caps' is, because years ago in the UK when a player played for his country he would recieve a cap (a hat) for each match he played in. This has been phased out in more modern times (otherwise that would be alot of caps), but to this day people still call it caps instead of appearances. Anyway i decided to change it to "He has 52 caps for..." and left out either word "won" or "played". Bobbymozza (talk) 19:32, 20 August 2010 (UTC)

Hi Bobbymossa. Ok, I didn't know that, thanks for telling me :) EileenSanda (talk) 19:45, 20 August 2010 (UTC)

Player Stats (football)[edit]

I was wondering if you are aware that in the info boxes, they count league matches only. I noticed on the the Géza Turi article the stats didn't seem to add up and on the Christian Mouritsen article they were very diferent from my original research. I know it's strange being league matches only, but that's how they do it. There was discussion about it before on the wikiproject but they thought it would be too much work changing every article so they're all consistant. Cup appearances are usually just mentioned in Player statistics charts (example here) and sometimes in the text. Faroesoccer.com can be a pain because they don't seperate league from cup appearaances on the player profiles. But if you click on the teams on the Vodafonedeildin page, they have stats for league appearances, B36 Bobbymozza (talk) 16:16, 9 October 2010 (UTC)

Answer: Hi Bobbymozza, no, I wasn't aware of that, so it is very good that you tell me. In the beginning I did only count the league matches, but later I thougt that it takes so much time to separate the league matches from the other matches, that I just counted all of the matces, I thougt that it probably didn't matter. But now I know, thanks for telling me. Yes, it is a pain ... that FaroeSoccer doesn't separate the league matches from the cup matches, but except for that I am very happy for the statistics on FaroeSoccer. I would wish that they had statistics about the national matches for Faroe Islands and the youth national matches (U21, U19, U17 and U15), there is almost nothing to find on Football.fo about the youth national teams. Well, anyway, you do a great job on Wikipedia regarding the Faroese football! EileenSanda (talk) 18:30, 9 October 2010 (UTC)

Finnur Justinussen[edit]

I was away from Wikipedia when this article was deleted, so I didn't offer up my vote to keep it. I think it was deleted with out a fair discussion.

If you want to propose a deletion review for this article, I will support it. --Yankees76 Talk 14:43, 10 December 2010 (UTC)

Hello Yankees76. I did what I could, and the page still got deleted. I don't know how to propose a deletion review, and I don't wish to use more time on this matter right now. But thanks for your support. EileenSanda (talk) 17:19, 11 December 2010 (UTC)

Thanks, Sue Rangell 20:06, 16 December 2012 (UTC)

  • Thanks for letting me know. I have tried to improve the article and to establish some kind of notability. I don't know if it is enough. A person who receives the Faroese Literature Prize is seen as notable in the Faroe Islands. She is a bit know also in other countries for her part in the film Bye Bye Bluebird and there are articles about her on the German, Norwegian, Swedish, Danish and Faroese wikipeida also. I thought she was notable enough for the English Wikipedia also, if not I would not have created the article. But I didn't write much, it is difficult to find much about her writing other than what I have written. It is also difficult to find any documentation for the awards and nominations which the film Bye Bye Bluebird got now 12 years after, but one award and one nomination, I think.

Hi Cdtew. Thanks for your positive comment. I have added more references now, including some which are in English. Non of his books have been translated into English yet, maybe that is why it is so difficult to find any references on the internet written in English. But I did manage to find a few and added them. I removed the tags, as you suggest that I could. I hope that it was okay to do that. Kind regards and a Merry Christmas EileenSanda (talk) 20:45, 23 December 2012 (UTC)

Election results[edit]

Hello Eileen. I'm about to start creating articles for Faroese elections between 1906 and 1945. I have the vote figures, but do not have the number of seats won by each party. Do you know a source where I can find these? I've looked on Hagstova Føroya, but they only seem to have the vote numbers too. Thanks, Number 57 19:46, 25 December 2013 (UTC)

Hello Number57. No, I don't know where to find these informations. The Norwegian Wikipedia has written about it, and he (User:Efloan) has found it somewhere, but I don't know where. He uses hagstova.fo as rference, but like you say, it is not possible to find the number of seats for that period there, at least I can't find it. There are some books online, but I am not sure if the number of seats is mentioned, can you read Faroese? I will try to find something, for now I can show you this one in pdf-file, written in Faroese, 400 pages: logting.fo, Løgtingssøgan (History of the Løgting). Best regards EileenSanda (talk) 11:32, 26 December 2013 (UTC)
On the Løgting's website logting.fo, you can find "Løgtingstíðindi" at the bottom left side. Chose "Vel" (Chose), scroll down the years an push "Eldri" which means "Older", and now you will be able to chose between the years 1880 to 1997. Chose one of the years, i.e. the year 1944, which mentions the members of the Løgting on doc. 1 under "B. Einstøku tingmálini", here: 1944. EileenSanda (talk) 13:42, 26 December 2013 (UTC)
Thank you very much! On the 1944 one, I assume the letters after the names are party abbreviations (ffl = People's Party, sb = Union Party, sj = Self-Government Party, jm = Social Democratic Party)? I'm afraid that I don't know Faroese, so I can't really read anything. As an example - in 1943 there is a list on page 9 of the section C. Vanliga tingsetan 1943 - this lists several people - were they all elected at the same time? Number 57 16:13, 26 December 2013 (UTC)
Yes, you are right about the meaning of the letters. I think that all the listed persons were elected at the same time, the first list are men who were elected directly (Faroese: beinleiðis), the second list were extra members (eykatingevni), I don't know what that means, I mean, there were 25 members, and the first list consists only of 14 names, the last four were elected directly, but all these names are only 23, the text says something about waiting with the approval of the members from Vágar district, and one member, Poul Niclassen was in Denmark (this was during World War II, when Denmark was occupied by Germany and the Faroes by the British, so there were no ferries), and therefor he could not meet at the Løgting. On page 11 you can see the names of the two elected members from Vágar: Samuel Ellefsen (Ffl.) and Johs. Slettenæs. Tr. Samuelsen was approved in stead of Poul Niclasen. I think that the easiest thing you can do is to use the information on the Norwegian Wikipedia and use the documents on logting.fo as reference. EileenSanda (talk) 17:25, 26 December 2013 (UTC)

OK, that's what I have done. Just one more question - the Business Party (Faroe Islands) appears to have been the forerunner of the People's Party (Faroe Islands) (at least according to the Norwegian article, which says the People's Party was formed by a merger of the Business Party and some people leaving the Self-Government Party). However, this is not what the People's Party article says - does it need to be corrected? Cheers, Number 57 21:47, 27 December 2013 (UTC)

Yes, you are right. I have corrected the leading section: "Founded in 1939 as a split from the Self-Government Party and by former members of the Business Party (Vinnuflokkurin)...", but further down - under the headline History, it says: "The party was founded in 1939 as Vinnuflokkurin." The reference is: Ackrén, Maria. "The Faroe Islands: Options for Independence - Island Studies Journal 1 (2): 223–238." but the pdf-file is not there any longer. Was it really founded as Vinnuflokkurin? It doesn't sound right, as the Vinnuflokkurin was founded in 1935, why found another party with the same name four years later? EileenSanda (talk) 12:17, 28 December 2013 (UTC)
I suspect the person writing the article it is referenced to was mistaken. Thanks for your help! Number 57 22:12, 29 December 2013 (UTC)
Yes, perhaps that is the case. You are welcome :) I wish you a Happy New Year! EileenSanda (talk) 01:18, 30 December 2013 (UTC)

Wikilinking[edit]

Hi, and thanks for your work on the English Wikipedia. Just a short note to point out that we don’t normally link:

  • dates
  • years
  • commonly known geographical terms (including well-known country-names), and
  • common terms you’d look up in a dictionary (unless significantly technical).

Thanks and my best wishes.

Faroese nationalism[edit]

Hello, I recently created this page regarding the Faroese independence movement. Considering your active role within the Faroese WikiProject, your residency within the islands and your fluency in the language, I believe you could make some brilliant contributions to this article's immensely important topic. Whether it be a general clean up or a translation into Faroese or Danish, I look forward to any contributions you'll want to make. Thanks for your time! -1Matt20 (talk) 03:08, 20 April 2014 (UTC)

Hello, I don't feel like I am the right person to write much about the Faroese nationalism, but I will try to write some, and have just now written some in the beginning of the article, it should probably not be there, but I couldn't see where to put it. Did you know about the article about the Christmas Meeting 1888? It is said to be the start of the national movement. It was not so much of an independence movement at first, they struggled to get the right to use the Faroese language in the school, in the chuch and elsewhere, it was forbidden, only Danish was to be used there. The first political parties were established in 1906, but before that the national movement worked outside the parliament by writing in Faroese, they published magazines and other papers in Faroese, the only Faroese newspaper back then was Dimmalætting and it was written only in Danish for several years. There is not much to find about all this in English. I will see what I can do. But I think there should be written something more about the cultural part too, don't you think? I don't quite understand the meaning of this sentce: "As the 19th century progressed, so did the Faroese language and the freedoms of residents of the islands; with these changes came the birth of the nationalist movement". What do you mean? EileenSanda (talk) 07:21, 21 April 2014 (UTC)
Hey Eileen, your edits on the page were fantastic, and I immensely appreciate them. I moved them from the opening section to the one entitled "Under Danish rule" as they flowed better with the content already there. I agree with you when it comes to that sentence - it was a mistake. Not very objective, it's been removed in favor of your contributions with cover the idea of my flawed statement in a much better way. Thanks again! -1Matt20 (talk) 14:21, 21 April 2014 (UTC)
OK, great, thanks :) EileenSanda (talk) 22:44, 21 April 2014 (UTC)

Hey again, I think our next step would be to translate the Faroese independence page onto the Faroese and Danish wikipedias. I understand you have proficiency in both languages, but I know it's a lot to ask. Would you be up for the task? -1Matt20 (talk) 17:45, 27 April 2014 (UTC)
