Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. Thank you for your contributions.

Currently, you are editing without a username. You can continue to do so, as you are not required to log in to Wikipedia to read and edit articles; however, logging in will result in a username being shown instead of your IP address (yours is S.Örvarr.S). Logging in does not require any personal details, and there are many other benefits for logging in.

When you edit pages:

  • Please respect others' copyrights; do not copy and paste the contents from webpages directly.
  • Please use a neutral point of view when editing articles; this is possibly the most important Wikipedia policy.
  • If you are testing, please use the Sandbox to do so.
  • Do not add unreasonable contents into any articles, such as copyrighted text, advertisement messages, and text that is not related to an article's subject. Adding such content or editing articles maliciously is considered vandalism.

The Wikipedia Tutorial is a good place to start learning about Wikipedia. For now, if you are stuck, you can click the edit this page tab above, type {{helpme}} in the edit box, and then click Save Page; an experienced Wikipedian will be around shortly to answer any questions you may have. Also feel free to ask a question on my talk page. I will answer your questions as far as I can! Thank you again for contributing to Wikipedia. John Vandenberg 23:56, 5 April 2007 (UTC)

Request[edit]

Do you have a microphone? If so, we are in need of some recordings in OGG format of the cognates listed here, apparently my pronunciation was inaccurate and so a native Icelander was requested. It’s a hard language! LOL. Anyway, if you could drop me line to let me know if you’re interested or not. Thanks! Max Naylor 13:24, 2 June 2007 (UTC)

Góða(n) daginn[edit]

Thanks for your message. From what I understand, both versions are correct. As you said, "flest fólk segir Góðan daginn". I've never seen or heard Góða daginn used (although I'm not a native speaker, so I don't know how often it's actually used in Iceland). Certainly, it's never been mentioned in any phrase books or Icelandic courses I've used. Also, a Google search for "góða daginn" returns only around 250 results, and a number of those are links to discussions about which version is right.

Anyway, I think the bottom line is this: the article is primarily intended for English speakers, not necessarily Icelanders. The phrase in question is part of a list of phrases for foreigners, not a grammar textbook. It is therefore better to use the most commonly used variant: góðan daginn, so as not to confuse learners. I assume the article you read is this one. Note the last sentence: "Myndirnar góðan dag og góða daginn eru því málfræðilega réttar en góðan daginn er algeng málvenja." Yes, it's technically grammatically wrong, but most people use it as a set phrase.

A translation request[edit]

Hi, I was just wondering if you could translate this passage:

Smjörið er brætt og hveitið smátt og smátt hrært út í það, þangað til það er gengið upp í smjörið. Síðan er mjólkinni smáhellt út í, og hrært stöðugt í, til þess ekki fari í kekki. Þegar mjólkin er gengin upp og grauturinn orðinn vel jafn og saltið komið í, skal taka hann ofan. Með honum er borin saftblanda eða mjólk, einnig steyttur sykur og kanel.

For the Icelandic language article (the text examples section). Ta! Max Naylor 18:06, 29 June 2007 (UTC)

No problem, Máx Náýlór:

The butter is melted and the flour stirred into it (slowly but surely), until it is has blended with the butter. Then the milk is slowly poured into, and stirred constantly, so it doesn’t get lumpy. When the milk has blended well and the porridge has become steady and salt has been added, it should be taken off. It is served with a (fruit) juice mixture or milk, even stirred sugar and cinnamon.

Damn, that proved to be harder than I anticipated. I don't really know anything about cooking so I'm not sure what was being talked about. It's some recipe, sounds foul. The words inside () can be skipped, it won't change the meaning, but including them makes it a bit more describing, I guess. I'm sure people are gonna go "Oh! That's terrible translated, I'll have to do it myself!" but one (with my knowledge) can only do one's best. Enjoy. --Stefán Örvarr Sigmundsson 03:45, 30 June 2007 (UTC)

Paint.NET[edit]

Please keep in mind that the Wikipedia pages are not forums. That said, in answer to your question, it is a great program, but whether or not it is professional is a matter of opinion- and it's absolutely free, so it doesn't cost you anything to form your own. If you have any other questions about the program, consider asking them at [1]. Hope that helped! =David(talk)(contribs) 12:14, 22 September 2007 (UTC)

I wasn't asking for myself but for a field called "Description" in the article "Comparison of raster graphics editors". I would have added something like "Professional image editor and graphics creation tool", this is actually about Adobe Photoshop which everybody knows is pro. And if Paint.NET is too I would have written the same or something similar. --Stefán Örvarr Sigmundsson 12:26, 22 September 2007 (UTC)
Oh, my apologies! We've had several people post installation questions and such on the talk page, and I thought that's what this was. Again, I'm sorry for the misunderstanding!
As for your question, I think it would be best to leave "professional" off. It's really meant to be easily accessible before powerful; besides, the moment you put it on there, a {{fact}} tagger would pounce. Thanks for the consideration, though! =David(talk)(contribs) 17:45, 22 September 2007 (UTC)

Bot help[edit]

{{helpme}} I am looking for a Wikimedian who can help me with bot problems. I am trying to program a bot for other Wikimedia-projects with C# but I need some assistance with the setup, and general advice would be well appreciated. The helper would have to be familiar with the OS Windows XP, be ready to communicate via MSN and, of course, have some understanding of C#.

It would also be quite cool if bots were also categorised by programming language. --Stefán Örvarr Sigmundsson 21:11, 12 November 2007 (UTC)
Have you read through Wikipedia:Creating a bot and Wikipedia:Bot requests (and its talk page)? The first one has lots of good general advice (so it seems to me, who has never created a bot), and the second and its archives might help to give you an idea of what sort of bots people have made. Perhaps some of the people there will be able to help you.
I'm not sure you'll get much help with the {{helpme}} template, since bot writing is a fairly specialized topic. I'd try asking on one of the bot pages here on wikipedia, or possibly a post to the help desk might attract attention from someone who knows more and can help you.
I hope you find the help you're looking for. --Sopoforic 21:44, 12 November 2007 (UTC)
Yes, I did read both those pages. My problem is with my CMD, which neither page covers. I just wanted someone to talk with via MSN to solve this and for future problems, like with development, should they occur. --Stefán Örvarr Sigmundsson 22:35, 12 November 2007 (UTC)
I see. I've only ever written programs that read from wikipedia, never edit it, so I probably can't help you, personally. I suspect that a nice, targeted question on either WP:BOTREQ or its talk page will find someone who can help, although I don't know whether anyone programs bots in C# specifically. --Sopoforic 23:39, 12 November 2007 (UTC)

I found your userpage quite interesting. Care to make contact? (OK, I admit, I'm also trying to learn a bit of Icelandic...) My MSNM is seto1@walla.co.il. Thank you. Siúnrá (talk) 10:59, 10 July 2008 (UTC)

Wikimania 2010 could be coming to Stockholm![edit]

I'm leaving you a note as you may be interested in this opportunity.

People from all six Nordic Wiki-communities (sv, no, nn, fi, da and is) are coordinating a bid for Wikimania 2010 in Stockholm. I'm sending you a message to let you know that this is occurring, and over the next few months we're looking for community support to make sure this happens! See the bid page on meta and if you like such an idea, please sign the "supporters" list at the bottom. Tack (or takk), and have a wonderful day! Mike H. Fierce! 09:52, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

Icelandic National Police[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Icelandic National Police, and it appears to be very similar to another wikipedia page: Icelandic Police. It is possible that you have accidentally duplicated contents, or made an error while creating the page— you might want to look at the pages and see if that is the case. If you are intentionally moving or duplicating content, please be sure you have followed the procedure at Wikipedia:Splitting by acknowledging the duplication of material in edit summary to preserve attribution history.

This message was placed automatically, and it is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article and it would be appreciated if you could drop a note on the maintainer's talk page. CorenSearchBot (talk) 07:11, 29 January 2009 (UTC)

Translation request[edit]

Hi. Sorry to bother you, but I've come here because you're listed at Wikipedia:Translators available#Icelandic-to-English, and we need someone who knows the language. Basically, we've got this article listed at WP:PNT, Jóna Kristjana, and we don't know what it means. My instinct says its probably not notable, and the section in the middle appears to be a hymn of some sort. If you have a free minute could you please take a look and give us the gist of it. Thank you--Jac16888Talk 01:08, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

Delete it. It's complete nonsense. --Stefán Örvarr Sigmundsson (talk) 19:50, 14 February 2009 (UTC)
Thank you very much for your help, its much appreciated--Jac16888Talk 20:51, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

Sorry t bother you again, but we've got this one, Jón Rúnar. Non-notable bio?--Jac16888Talk 10:49, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

lol... the things people come up with. It says, loosely translated, "Jón Rúnar, born in Norway and raced by Belgian nigger slaves. He has recently become homosexual and is now in a relationship with a half-Arab man named Haduk Rook Nachek. Haduk Rook likes reading and cuddling with his boyfriend." I'm pretty sure it's nothing important. --Stefán Örvarr Sigmundsson (talk) 11:49, 25 February 2009 (UTC)
Cheers, have deleted it now. You would be amazed at some of the things I see as an admin. Just yesterday I deleted three articles which were stories about jurassic park characters having sex with dinosaurs, written in french. Never been so shocked at a google translation result before--Jac16888Talk 11:56, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

Hi. Me again, sorry. How about this one, Marin & Mirjam?--Jac16888Talk 19:35, 26 March 2009 (UTC)

Yes, that's vandalism, in Faroese this time. --Stefán Örvarr Sigmundsson (talk) 19:40, 26 March 2009 (UTC)
Faroese? Not seen that one before. Well, its gone now, thank you--Jac16888Talk 19:44, 26 March 2009 (UTC)
Unbelievable, 2 in one night. Þórdís Kristinsdóttir. I'm guessing non-notable bio again.--Jac16888Talk 00:49, 27 March 2009 (UTC)

Össur[edit]

Hello there. Just to let you know that I've proposed the article Össur be moved back to Ossur. I've started a discussion at Talk:Össur. Regards, Gr1st (talk) 13:26, 29 August 2009 (UTC)

On a related note, I noticed that you initially moved the page to Össur hf (which must have been an accident) and then copied the contents of the page to its current location at Össur. There is a significant problem with moving pages via copy-paste, in that it separates the article from its edit history. This is a problem because the terms of the Creative Commons license requires all contributors be given credit for their work—this is accomplished through the intact edit history. By severing the two, the CC license has in effect been invalidated, which is of course a problem. Please always remember to move pages with the move button, and if there's a redirect blocking a move, simply list it at Wikipedia:Requested moves so an admin can move it for you. I've already fixed this move, so don't worry about it. If you have any questions, feel free to ask me. Regards, Parsecboy (talk) 14:56, 30 August 2009 (UTC)

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Wikipedia Reviewer.svg

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, is currently undergoing a two-month trial scheduled to end 15 August 2010.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under pending changes. Pending changes is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:OldReviewedPages.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 18:38, 19 June 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of IHF men's world rankings[edit]

A tag has been placed on IHF men's world rankings, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done for the following reason:

no such ranking exists

Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not meet basic Wikipedia criteria may be deleted at any time.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion," which appears inside of the speedy deletion ({{db-...}}) tag (if no such tag exists, the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate). Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. Intoronto1125TalkContributions 03:06, 6 August 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Músíktilraunir[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Músíktilraunir requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about an organization or company, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted.

Hi, S.Örvarr.S, I've changed your nomination on the above article for speedy deletion to db-empty because "nothing links here" isn't a valid criterion for speedy; please see WP:CSD for the full list of criteria. Thanks, Baffle gab1978 (talk) 00:21, 19 April 2012 (UTC)

Updating archived links[edit]

We usually don't update archived links to moved pages. There is a working redirect at 2008–2011 Icelandic financial crisis so an update is unnecessary, and potentially confusing when the archive is clearly from before 2012. PrimeHunter (talk) 04:22, 8 May 2012 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Lúðvík Geirsson[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Lúðvík Geirsson requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person, organization (band, club, company, etc.) or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Articles on various Althing members[edit]

Hi! Ive spent some time tagging a number of biographies from current parliament members in Iceland. The notability tag is placed because the article itself gives no indication of notability. You might think about expanding each of the articles from the material in the official Althing biography. The articles need other sources which point to notability. Newspaper articles, etc that point out important activities of the subjects would help. I am writing this with the hope that it is helpful since you have taken on a number of new articles which will need attention. Keep on editing! Stormbay (talk) 22:01, 18 May 2012 (UTC)

Empty categories[edit]

You created dozens of empty categories, e.g. Category:1918 establishments in Iceland. Empty categories are normally speedy deleted.

Iceland-related edits[edit]

Thanks for the personal appreciation you posted on my talkpage, for some of my latest contributions to some topics in the Icelandic field of Wikipedia. For sure I also appreciate your inputs, and the recent good debate we had at Talk:2008–2011 Icelandic financial crisis. Unfortunately my ties to Iceland (and knowledge about Iceland) is very limited, and when adding material I am in most cases entirely dependent of an automatic browser-translation of Icelandic web-material. Lately, I however caught interest to dig into the political and financial affairs affecting Iceland, since the Icelandic financial crisis erupted in 2008. The fuel behind my latest contributions for Wikipedia in this field, was (as you also suspected) a boiling frustration I had, when experiencing a great difficulty to find some easy accessible and accurate/neutral in-depth references formulated in English about Icelandic affairs.

I am indeed a Dane as you presumed, but live in Copenhagen, and only an "expert" to the extend of having a habit to research rather deep into various matters having ignited my interest. In my daily life I am working as a technical analytical engineer (graduated from Denmark's Technical University), who opted to supplement his education with a bachelor degree in Business Economics (from Copenhagen Business School). As such I don't have expert status within a certain field. My expertise is limited to my analytical skills. If you need my help/input to check/analyze for the completeness/accurateness of certain Wikipedia articles about Icelandic financial affairs, you are always welcome to contact me. But unfortunately this is probably the only Icelandic corner, where I can help and contribute. Currently, I also have an increased personal interest to follow how the economic-political topics develop in Iceland, particularly in the light of the severe financial crisis you were hit by in October 2008. I have a perception that we in Scandinavia + Iceland + Faroese Island all share the same basic Nordic mindset and cultural/historic values, and this is probably also why I tend mainly to have high interest to follow/contribute to articles about all sorts of economic/political developments in the Nordic countries. As a pro-European Dane, I also tend to have a high interest/knowledge about economic-political affairs within EU, which is the second corner I currently also attempt to help cover at Wikipedia.

Icelandic presidential elections[edit]

I really see no need for the template - to answer your point about common appearance, all the tables already have a common appearance - i.e. the wikitable format. See for example 1968 and 1980 - they are already identical. This is also a format used across most election articles, so is more consistent than a template created for a specific country.

In addition, the appearance of the template is also poor - the heading having to be over two lines because the width has been set as too narrow. The wording is incorrect (words after slashes shouldn't be capitalised), and I also see no need for the links at the bottom. Number 57 17:25, 18 October 2013 (UTC)

Category redirects[edit]

Hello, S.Örvarr.S. Just to let you know, when you want to redirect a category, you should use the {{Category redirect}} template rather than the #REDIRECT keyword. For technical reasons, categories cannot be redirected like articles can. See the template documentation for more info. Thanks. --R'n'B (call me Russ) 10:39, 3 December 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for December 4[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Ambassadors of Iceland, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Macedonia and Georgia (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help.

Categories for deletion[edit]

Just noticed a lot of categories you created for Category:Bilateral relations of Iceland are up for deletion as empty categories. If you have comments about this, you might contact the editor placing the CSD tag on them. I thought you should be notified. Liz Read! Talk! 19:33, 12 February 2014 (UTC)

August 2014[edit]

Information icon Hello. Regarding the recent revert you made to Template:.NET Framework version history: you may already know about them, but you might find Wikipedia:Template messages/User talk namespace useful. After a revert, these can be placed on the user's talk page to let them know you considered their edit inappropriate, and also direct new users towards the sandbox. They can also be used to give a stern warning to a vandal when they've been previously warned. Thank you. Dogmaticeclectic (talk) 22:06, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

Content removal[edit]

Greetings! When you remove contents from templates or articles, as you did to Template:.NET Framework version history, please provide an edit summary explaining the rationale behind the removal, especially when the amount of removal is massive and the removed contents includes text with source.

Another editor has now contested your removals and I can't see why not either. I'd advise you to communicate with that editor before considering repeating your removals. Cheers. Fleet Command (talk) 17:36, 30 August 2014 (UTC)
