Question about SAS Frosundavik Building and SAS re-leasing it[edit]

I found this Swedish news article:

Using Google Translate, I think it states that SAS moved some employees back into the SAS Frösundavik Office Building (I renamed the article to make it clear which one it is) after the company failed to find a buyer. The Google translate seems to say:

  • The construction occurred from 1985 to 1987
  • Only 6,000 square meters are left for rental
  • SAS's lease runs to 2023, so it is sub-leasing areas in the building

Is this correct? Is there any more information of note? Thanks WhisperToMe (talk) 09:40, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

Hemmema at FAC[edit]

I recently nominated hemmema as a FAC. Since the article is included in the scope of this project, I'm posting a notification here. If you have time to spare, please drop by with feedback and criticial comments.

Early Swedish flag[edit]

Ever since this edit to flag of Sweden in 2007, it's been accepted as established fact that the Swedish state and war ensign was a double-tailed flag until 1663. It was even used for {{flagicon}} for anything relating to Sweden c. 1562-1663 until I questioned it recently. As far as I can tell, there seems to be no evidence of any "official" standardized flags as early as the 16th century. Since this particular statement has been accepted for over seven years, I'm asking for more input on the matter at talk:flag of Sweden#Double tail needs support.

Comments on merger[edit]

You are welcome to comment in Talk:Kristineberg, Malmö kommun about a proposed merger. --IRISZOOM (talk) 04:44, 5 September 2014 (UTC)

Yes, it should definitely be merged to Kristineberg, Malmö. Also, the term kommun should not be used for disambiguation of Swedish articles on English Wikipedia, since the English-language term is municipality, such as Malmö Municipality. Tomas e (talk) 14:32, 22 September 2014 (UTC)

Scanian regionalist POV[edit]

I'd like to alert members of the project of the activities of Boeing720. I've had disputes with the user over articles like Swedish language, Scanian dialect, South Swedish dialects and Skåneland. Not many other users have chimed in, but all have so far agreed that Boeing is relying on personal reflections rather than reliable sources.

The user has also recently been editing Scania with unsubstantiated claims[1] that "[a]ll television channels [...] are controlled or aired from Stockholm, and so also radio and most newspapers" and that "the uprising of many small political parties [...] has been a typical Scanian sign". The jist of most edits is that Scania is utterly unique and separate from Sweden as a whole.

By just browsing, I notice that there has also been multiple problems with bad spelling, unencyclopedic writing, unorthodox ideas about article structure, and several other issues. Worth looking ínto for those who have the time and inclination to do so. Tomas e (talk) 14:36, 22 September 2014 (UTC)


Can somebody please populate Category:Swedish sports broadcasters and Category:Swedish sports journalists and connect to cats on Swedish wiki?♦ Dr. Blofeld 12:00, 27 September 2014 (UTC)

I've linked them their Swedish counterparts via Wikidata. Tomas e (talk) 13:31, 29 September 2014 (UTC)

Felicia´s svenska suite[edit]

The current spelling in article title includes an aprostrophe that seems to be in the album cover title as well. But elsewhere the title seems to be spelt without an aprostrophe (which according to Norwegian grammar would be grammatically correct). Do you have any opinion on what is the correct title here?

Comment on the WikiProject X proposal[edit]

Hello there! As you may already know, most WikiProjects here on Wikipedia struggle to stay active after they've been founded. I believe there is a lot of potential for WikiProjects to facilitate collaboration across subject areas, so I have submitted a grant proposal with the Wikimedia Foundation for the "WikiProject X" project. WikiProject X will study what makes WikiProjects succeed in retaining editors and then design a prototype WikiProject system that will recruit contributors to WikiProjects and help them run effectively. Please review the proposal here and leave feedback. If you have any questions, you can ask on the proposal page or leave a message on my talk page. Thank you for your time! (Also, sorry about the posting mistake earlier. If someone already moved my message to the talk page, feel free to remove this posting.) Harej (talk) 22:48, 1 October 2014 (UTC)
