I see no one said, "WELCOME". Welcome! Hello, Askeladden2006, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay.

Here are a few good links for newcomers:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your name and the date. If you need help, check out Wikipedia:Where to ask a question, ask me on my talk page, or place {{helpme}} on your talk page and someone will show up shortly to answer your questions. Again, welcome!


Hi, Are you aware of this page? (Maybe it is yours?). You could link to it in == External Links == in your article and that would help. I added comments to the talk page of your proposed article, I hope you find them helpful.

It does appear this is a real diability, now I'd like to help you turn the article into a good quality Wikipedia article.

Yes, that's mine[edit]

Yes, that is my website! lol. My real name is Mosken. You can google me. I thought I was not supposed to link to my own websites??? I read that in your guidelines. Askeladden2006 17:52, 17 June 2006 (UTC)


I forgot to thank you so much for wanting to help me! We discussed Wikipedia on my online support group where many people suffer from sitting disability. One of them suggested I wrote something on wiki. I was really surprised I didn't find any articles about it here.

A lot of positive things have happened in legal protection against discrimination of people with disabilities the last year in Europe. The negative part is that some groups are overlooked. First of all society now is familiar with people in wheel chairs. To lie down in public buildings or in public transport is something people are not used to see. I am using a wheel bench like you see me on those pictures on my website. I have used it to travel all around Europe with my family. Thank you again! Askeladden2006 18:03, 17 June 2006 (UTC)

You're welcome[edit]

Hi, You are welcome :-) I think you are well on your way and I'm glad if I helped. Your article is no longer a candidate for speedy deletion. It's already been somewhat wikified. As for linking to your own external website, my understanding is that you shouldn't be linking to your own *personal* website. But, if you have a website that has valid (and validated) content that is relevant to the article, I see no reason why you shouldn't link to it. One of the Wikipedia principles is to be bold! If you err on the side of being too bold, someone will edit it and educate you. But if you err on the side of being timid we will never know what you had to say and never have the opportunity to debate and decide the relevance and importance of the information being included in Wikipdedia. So be bold!

I will continue to monitor your article and help as I can.

Sign talk page, not article page[edit]

Hi, just a minor point, I noticed that you're signing the article page when you make changes. You don't need to, in fact shouldn't, do that. You sign talk pages, not article pages. Good luck, I'll make a few edits to improve the article when I'm a little less busy :-) Brian 09:10, 20 June 2006 (UTC)btball

Thank you![edit]

Oh, good! That makes it more easy! Cause I keep thinking of a small improvements I want to add. Now I don't have to worry about the signing. Thank you! I am so glad you are interested! Askeladden2006 11:53, 20 June 2006 (UTC)

Copy edit?[edit]

Btw, how can I help with the copy edit myself? I read the guide, but I have already used the Google toolbar check. I don't find any errors.. Askeladden2006 12:19, 20 June 2006 (UTC)

Preview button[edit]

Hello Askeladden2006, I noticed you had quite alot of edits on your article sitting disability. Are you aware of the "Show preview" button next to the Save page button on the editing page? This helps show you what a page will look like due to the changes you want to make. People use it when they do not want alot of minor/major changes to show on the article's history. I think you would find it helpful. Just a suggestion. Nice article. --Ethii 14:00, 22 July 2006 (UTC)

Notability of Friends International[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on Friends International requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article appears to be about a real person, organization (band, club, company, etc.), or web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is notable: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable. If this is the first page that you have created, then you should read the guide to writing your first article.

If you think that you can assert the notability of the subject, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the article's talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article 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 article that would confirm the subject's notability under Wikipedia guidelines.

For guidelines on specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for bands, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. Blanchardb-MeMyEarsMyMouth-timed 13:47, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

Regarding Friends International[edit]

(duplicate note from article talk page) Please don't remove speedy deletion tags from articles which you have created. I have restored the speedy tag and also added a "hangon", which is Wikipedia's method of indicating that you are offering an argument on the talk page against the deletion of the article. You may wish to review the notability guidelines on web material, which might help you determine what kinds of information are typically included to substantiate notability on websites. You may also wish to consider creating articles within a user subpage, which will allow you to develop them incrementally with less fear that they will be deleted before you can finish. Many Wikipedia editors (me included) use a sandbox for this purpose; you might want to create one at User:Askeladden2006/sandbox. When articles are finished, they can be moved into article space. Another useful way to let new page patrolers know that you are still working on an article that you might want to consider implementing is the {{inuse}} tag. Added to the top of an article, it expands with a template to let others know that you are working. This will not necessarily prevent edit conflicts or stop someone from prematurely evaluating an article for speedy deletion, but it might help. I'll duplicate this note at your talk page. :) If you'd like clarification on any of this, please let me know there, as I will have your talk page watchlisted. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 14:19, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

With regards to your note at the article's talk page, I understand if you are frustrated by the repeated deletion of an article on which you were working. I would like to point out, though, that I am not the only administrator on Wikipedia and that I have never deleted the article. All I've done is attempt to help you. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 14:54, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

Anyway, everything is now deleted. Even the talk. This is so unfair. I am disabled and I was not even allowed to use the time I needed to start the article. You have to understand it takes time to type in article without using arms or hands. Also, you should be consequent and not only go after nonprofit groups for sick people. You should concentrate on all the articles about forums you have already! And let me finished!


Wikipedia has many articles, and sometimes articles that do not meet guidelines are overlooked. That doesn't mean that all articles that do not meet guidelines should be overlooked. Again, I understand that this must be frustrating for you. However, I have done the best that I can to advise you how to proceed without running into these problems, and I note that you have made use of a sandbox as I suggested. I do understand that it takes time to develop an article, which is why I made those suggestions and did not myself delete the article. I hope that none of the material was lost when it was deleted, as you had already copied the contents of the article to said sandbox. I also hope that utilizing a sandbox will allow you time to develop articles at your own pace with less concern about swift judgment. If you wish to discuss this further, I have—as I noted above—watchlisted your talk page, and I will see your responses there. However, if you'd prefer to continue it (at my talk page), I would be perfectly happy to do so. In the meantime, I will duplicate this response at your talk page to ensure that you see it as well. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 17:30, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

Your note[edit]

Hi. Thanks for your note. I have replied. :) --Moonriddengirl (talk) 18:37, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

Your recent edits[edit]

Hi there. In case you didn't know, when you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion, you should sign your posts by typing four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment. On many keyboards, the tilde is entered by holding the Shift key, and pressing the key with the tilde pictured. You may also click on the signature button Button sig.png located above the edit window. This will automatically insert a signature with your name and the time you posted the comment. This information is useful because other editors will be able to tell who said what, and when. Thank you! --SineBot (talk) 10:43, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

Thank you, I know that, but it is really difficult to get my dictating program to accomplish that. Sometimes it works, sometimes not. I'm severely disabled and not using keyboard or computer mouse. Thanks for understanding.--{{subst:Babel-7|en-3|no|nn-2|sv-2|da-2|de-1|fr-1}} (talk) 14:27, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

Hi. Just to let you know (I've got your talk page watchlisted because of our conversation) that this notice was placed automatically by a bot. It may well reappear. Given the circumstances, I'd ignore it if I were you. :) --Moonriddengirl (talk) 14:29, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

You are really sweet! Thank you!


Hi, I didn't start the article but I do contribute to it. I definitely think it's better just to link to the official communities. Please feel free to edit the article if you have information to add. There is also the Talk:Yuku page if you wish to discuss any recent or future changes. JamminBen (talk) 23:15, 10 January 2008 (UTC)

My not really helpful note on images[edit]

I'm duplicating my reply from my talk page here, because it's just easy to paste it here as it is to leave you a note telling you it's over there. :)

Hi. :) I have to admit that I have very little experience with working with images and so far have only handled album covers myself. I think that the one you're asking about has not been tagged because the requirements for images seem to have recently changed. Some images seem to be grandfathered in; others are picked up late by the bot that usually detects these problems. But I know that quite recently a couple of hundred album covers were tagged for deletion because they did not contain all of the information currently required. For a knowledgeable response to this question, you probably ought to ask at a board where they do routinely work with images. There are a couple of places that might manage this well. In your position, I would feel equally comfortable starting with Wikipedia talk:Non-free content or Wikipedia talk:Image use policy. Both seem heavily frequented, and I imagine your question there would receive attention within a day or two. If not, you can also address it at the help desk. But while the help desk gets a lot of volunteers, a great many of them will share my inexperience with images, and whether or not you will get an answer from somebody who knows what he or she is talking about may be a matter of luck. :) --Moonriddengirl (talk) 20:15, 21 January 2008 (UTC)

Your note[edit]

Thanks. Reply is waiting. :) --Moonriddengirl (talk) 20:06, 24 January 2008 (UTC)

Image tagging for Image:Norwegianpart.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Norwegianpart.jpg. You don't seem to have said where the image came from or who created it. We requires this information to verify that the image is legally usable on Wikipedia, and because most image licenses require giving credit to the image's creator.

To add this information, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the information to the image's description. If you need help, post your question on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions.

For more information on using images, see the following pages:

Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 21:08, 26 January 2008 (UTC)

I am familiar with all this. I also filled this out several times! I have seen it be very several times! I don't understand why or how it disappear!

I also have asked for help several days ago, but no one has replied to me. Obviously there are new regulations since I last uploaded photos. And this is just screenshots all my own website.--{{subst:Babel-7|en-3|no|nn-2|sv-2|da-2|de-1|fr-1}} (talk) 21:30, 26 January 2008 (UTC)

This is where I asked for help:Image Help

Hi. I see you're being harassed by bots again. :) I'm sorry that you haven't had any response to your request for help on images. :/ Some discussion pages are more active than others, and I've had my requests for help go unanswered before. I wish I knew more about images myself. There's a chance that you can get a good response at the help desk (depends on what volunteers are working there at a given time), but I'd make clear in the question if you choose to ask if there that you've already asked for and failed to receive feedback at Wikipedia:Image use policy. I'd also check back a couple of times over a day or two, because the first response you get may not be the best. Good luck. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 21:55, 26 January 2008 (UTC)

hello there[edit]

Hi there just letting you know that I replied on the help desk to your question, and you can there with this link.--KerotanLeave Me a Message Have a nice day :) 22:42, 26 January 2008 (UTC)

Thats not what I really meant, you see if I took a screen shot of this page now and uploaded it, the source would be, so if you could get the web address of the website in the screen shot, that would be really nice, because that should stop anyone with tagging the image with copyright tags.

Oh and by the way, I am Kerotan If you need any help with anything just ask over at my talk page.--KerotanLeave Me a Message Have a nice day :) 22:53, 26 January 2008 (UTC)

Its all done, the image shouldn't have any problems now.--KerotanLeave Me a Message Have a nice day :) 22:57, 26 January 2008 (UTC)

My website Like that? That is my board. The other one is from the Norwegian part: Norwegianpart --{{subst:Babel-7|en-3|no|nn-2|sv-2|da-2|de-1|fr-1}} (talk) 23:48, 26 January 2008 (UTC)

See, I have the same problem here: screenshot I keep adding ref and info. but it is not there...

the free screenshot tag should be enough. the mentioned image no longer has this problem.--KerotanLeave Me a Message Have a nice day :) 00:02, 27 January 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! 07:22, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

Hey, people from my small Nordic country of Lithuania are in a trouble because of Russia's official discriminatory attitude towards us... please, could you translate this article to Norwegian? 2009 Lithuania–Russia crisis One or two sentences would be great.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
