Audio articles[edit]

Hi. I saw your proposal on the Village pump about audio articles and I think it's a good idea. I've replied there, but I thought I'd just let you know. I've posted a note about it on Wikipedia talk:Pushing to 1.0 as well - we'd need static versions of articles which is what they're working on so hopefully they'll tell us what they think.

Thank you for the notice :) --Friðrik Bragi Dýrfjörð 22:26, 8 Apr 2005 (UTC)
I've just found this new Wikiproject: Wikipedia:WikiProject Spoken Wikipedia - someone else clearly thought that it was a good idea as well. SteveW | Talk 17:16, 13 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Pokémon characters[edit]

Why is it we are documenting pokémons (Phanpy), but small organizations (Labels are for jars) aren't allowed too be documented because they don't rate high enough in google hits? --Friðrik Bragi Dýrfjörð 15:39, 11 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Vasco da Gama[edit]

An article that you've edited before (Vasco da Gama) is nominated for Article Improvement Drive. If you want go there and vote. Thanks. Gameiro 02:58, 31 August 2005 (UTC)

Teh Scene[edit]

You tagged this for speedy deletion. I just deleted it. It would be very helpful if in future you used {{db}} and gave the reason why soemthing is subject to speedy deletion, or used one of the specialized db tempaltes that come with a reason pre-supplied -- they are lsited at WP:CSD and elsewhere. It makes the work of an admin patroling Category:Candidates for speedy deletion significantly easier. DES (talk) 06:08, 10 October 2005 (UTC)

Allright, will do. --Friðrik Bragi Dýrfjörð 13:03, 10 October 2005 (UTC)


...has been moved to User:Fbd/Silly-o-meter, per Wikipedia:Miscellaneous deletion/Wikipedia:Silly-o-meter. Yours, Radiant_>|< 16:55, 15 November 2005 (UTC)

Norse mythology naming convention vote notice[edit]

A new proposal on the representation of Norse mythology names is now up for a vote. Some people object to it on the grounds that it would use non-English characters in some article titles. It would be interesting to hear your view since you've commented on a related vote in the past. - Haukur Þorgeirsson 00:51, 19 November 2005 (UTC)


I read your comments on S-P. Actually, Jimbo is a god on Wikipedia. He has made several policy changes based on his whim and nothing more, including the recent change that banned anons from creating articles. 2/3rds of the passed policies have been due to his support (without it, we would probably go several months without S-P being implemented). Also, he's protected articles and blocked users only on his own authority, not on the arbcoms or foundation committee or anything else. Here is a good article on it. *should* he have that much authority? Maybe not. But calling him a god on Wikipedia doesn't mean we necessarily agree with it. But it's calling a spade a spade. If Jimbo wants it done, it gets done. To me, that defines a god for our purposes. He doesn't use that power alot, but he has it. --Woohookitty(cat scratches) 21:55, 17 December 2005 (UTC)
