A barnstar for you![edit]

Writers Barnstar Hires.png The Writer's Barnstar
Dear Carsten R D, in recognition of recently making your 1,000th edit to articles on English Wikipedia, and for all your great work expanding and improving Norway-related content in the encyclopedia, please accept this barnstar and my thanks :) Maryana (WMF) (talk) 19:49, 10 April 2012 (UTC)


TemplateData is here[edit]

Hey Carsten R D

I'm sending you this because you've made quite a few edits to the template namespace in the past couple of months. If I've got this wrong, or if I haven't but you're not interested in my request, don't worry; this is the only notice I'm sending out on the subject :).

So, as you know (or should know - we sent out a centralnotice and several watchlist notices) we're planning to deploy the VisualEditor on Monday, 1 July, as the default editor. For those of us who prefer markup editing, fear not; we'll still be able to use the markup editor, which isn't going anywhere.

What's important here, though, is that the VisualEditor features an interactive template inspector; you click an icon on a template and it shows you the parameters, the contents of those fields, and human-readable parameter names, along with descriptions of what each parameter does. Personally, I find this pretty awesome, and from Monday it's going to be heavily used, since, as said, the VisualEditor will become the default.

The thing that generates the human-readable names and descriptions is a small JSON data structure, loaded through an extension called TemplateData. I'm reaching out to you in the hopes that you'd be willing and able to put some time into adding TemplateData to high-profile templates. It's pretty easy to understand (heck, if I can write it, anyone can) and you can find a guide here, along with a list of prominent templates, although I suspect we can all hazard a guess as to high-profile templates that would benefit from this. Hopefully you're willing to give it a try; the more TemplateData sections get added, the better the interface can be. If you run into any problems, drop a note on the Feedback page.

Thanks, Okeyes (WMF) (talk) 21:57, 28 June 2013 (UTC)

Edit warning[edit]

Information icon Please refrain from making unconstructive edits to Wikipedia, as you did at Norunn Tveiten Benestad. Your edits appear to be disruptive and have been reverted or removed.

  • If you are engaged in an article content dispute with another editor then please discuss the matter with the editor at their talk page, or the article's talk page. Alternatively you can read Wikipedia's dispute resolution page, and ask for independent help at one of the relevant notice boards.
  • If you are engaged in any other form of dispute that is not covered on the dispute resolution page, please seek assistance at Wikipedia's Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents.

Please ensure you are familiar with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines, and please do not continue to make edits that appear disruptive, until the dispute is resolved through consensus. Continuing to edit disruptively could result in loss of editing privileges. Thank you.

Norunn Tveiten Benestad[edit]

The tags appear to be valid. Please do not take them personally. Bearian (talk) 22:34, 24 October 2013 (UTC)

You do a fine job, so please don't be discouraged. There are however very many rules on Wikipedia, especialy regarding living people. LinkedIn does not count as a published, reliable source. In addition, many users tag articles they think can be improved, not just for outright policy violations. Opinions on whether that's a good idea differ. Regards, Iselilja (talk) 23:08, 24 October 2013 (UTC)

A page you started (Akershus (disambiguation)) has been reviewed![edit]

Proposed deletion of Ljan Church[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Ljan Church has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

modern church building--no reason to think its notable . No significant additional info in the Norwegian WPs

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Speedy deletion nomination of Norway News[edit]

Hello Carsten R D,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Norway News for deletion, because it seems to be promotional, rather than an encyclopedia article.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to work on it, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions. MainlyTwelve (talk) 15:27, 29 March 2016 (UTC)

Autopatroller[edit]

Dear Carsten, thanks for writing all those lovely Norway related articles, I must visit the place myself some time. I was quite surprised to see that you hadn't been made Wp:Autopatrolled yet, so I've taken the liberty of fixing that. While I'm here I've also set your account as a reviewer, just in case any of the articles on your watch list get covered by pending changes. Take care, and happy editing. ϢereSpielChequers 18:47, 2 September 2016 (UTC)

Thank you very much! Working with Wikipedia for free does not lead to any other payment than bragging occasionally. I welcome you to Norway, of course. If anyone reading this has any suggestions for articles that should be written, it is also welcome. I have concentrated on the articles from Oslo and Kristiansand, where I have lived and live.

Information icon Please do not remove maintenance templates from pages on Wikipedia, as you did to Kampen Church (Oslo), without resolving the problem that the template refers to, or giving a valid reason for the removal in the edit summary.

Disambiguation link notification for September 13[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Kampen Church (Oslo), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Church tower (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.

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 09:57, 13 September 2016 (UTC)

September 2016[edit]

Please stop continuing to remove maintenance templates from pages on Wikipedia, as you did to Kampen Church (Oslo), without resolving the problem that the template refers to. This may be considered disruptive editing. Further edits of this type may result in your account being blocked from editing. Linguist 111 If you reply here, please ping me (type {{ping|Linguist111}} before your message). 12:59, 13 September 2016 (UTC)

@Linguist111: I really wonder what you want and what problem you want to resolve. Have you set prestige to keep the template? Can you not see the changes that I've made and actual found more credible sources? I create something you vandalize. So why ignore me so completely when I ask you to cooperate to make the article better, instead of this unnecessary tagging? Stop sending messages to me, let rather polite editors decide whether the references in the article are notable enough! Instead of threats, tell what kind of references that will satisfy you. Why not help Wikipedia finding sourses yourself, and when you're satisfied remove the tag? Or is it to delete the article in its entirety that is the goal you seek? The disruptive editing is what you are doing. In the tag the room for discussion is removed. The discussion on this page is closed. User:Carsten R D

Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic)[edit]

Hi. Thanks for your work on the Norwegian church! I was wondering if you would be interested in contributing articles to Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic)? It needs contributors to increase diversity of content from different countries and bring about large scale improvements. The idea at some point will be to host a National Contest related to your country of interest. At present Norway is underrepresented and needs articles to put up! Please sign up on the page if interested. Thanks.♦ Dr. Blofeld 20:12, 21 September 2016 (UTC)

A few tweaks[edit]
