I saw on the WP:LGBT member list that you speak Swedish. Very cool. If you're interested, you should definitely list your name on WikiProject LGBT studies/Translation. You would be the project's first Swedish-speaker.

Would it be possible for you to make sure the English and Swedish articles on the film Fucking Åmål include the same information? Currently the Swedish has some lists the English doesn't. Also, the English articles on Alexandra Dahlström and Rebecka Liljeberg are longer than the Swedish ones, which is sadly ironic, considering the actresses are Swedish.

Thanks if you can help!

Swedish LGBT[edit]

Hiya. I've been seeing how active the other language LGBT WikiProjects, and I've been noticing that a lot of the users I have spoken to in these semi-active projects complain of an uphill struggle against homophobic editors, who make it very difficult to get anywhere. I was wondering what the situation is like on the Swedish Wikipedia. Is there any censorship, or any form of WikiProject (or just some people who work together)?

Anita Ekberg[edit]

Hej. Det är ofta som hon inte hittar ord på svenska och istället använder sig av engelska uttryck. Hon har också ibland svårt att förstå vad folk säger. Det skulle i och för sig kunna tyda på att hon hör dåligt så det är möjligt att det kan formuleras om lite. Denna information kommer från när jag hört henne dels på radio och dels på hennes besök i Lund (då bilden togs). Entheta 13:25, 8 June 2007 (UTC)

Detta har förresten även nämts av Bengt Forslund. Han skriver om Ekberg "[...] hon är den enda [svenska filmstjärna] som talar sitt modersmål med stark utländsk brytning. (Bengt Forslund presenterar svenska filmstjärnor, Stockholm:Alfabeta bokförlag AB, 1995.) Entheta 13:34, 8 June 2007 (UTC)
Hej hej. Ja det är bra för mig. Jag bara undrade. Hon kommmer från Malmö och det är svårt för mig att höra hur hon låter på svenska. Tack för din hjälp. :) Intesvensk

Efva Attling[edit]

Aloha. Could you find me a reliable reference for Efva Attling's civil union with Eva Dahlgren? I can't find anything in English. Dev920 (Have a nice day!) 23:24, 27 July 2007 (UTC)

No, I can figure it out. Thanks a lot! Dev920 (Have a nice day!) 00:14, 28 July 2007 (UTC)

Ben devore[edit]

You tagged Ben devore a G3, vandalism, but a more appropriate tag would be WP:CSD#G10, which is for attack pages. Based on the content, a G10 tag would've been better. Also, you should notify the creator of the page. A template for doing this is found in the speedy deletion template, but this can also be down automatically using Huggle or Twinkle. --Patar knight - chat/contributions 19:46, 13 June 2009 (UTC)

No problem. Happy editing, --Patar knight - chat/contributions 19:51, 13 June 2009 (UTC)

Marissa Benson[edit]

Thanks for making that fictional character clear. I shot from the hip and deleted the thing. Cheers, Dlohcierekim 22:48, 13 June 2009 (UTC)

Question about PROD[edit]

{{adminhelp}} Hi there, I'm doing some recent changes patrolling and have come across the article Hermann Mucke (bioscientist). I'm not sure whether it satisfies WP:ACADEMIC or not and whether to PROD it or not (or even speedy delete it). All the references seem to be links to articles he's written or links to lists of those articles. Any suggestions gladly received. ɪntəsvɛnsk 15:17, 14 June 2009 (UTC)

And whilst we're at it... is this guy notable according to WP:N? None of the awards he has won seem to meet the criteria? I don't want to be a dick but the amount of self-referential crap that appears on Wikipedia is staggering and it would be nice to get rid of some of it. ɪntəsvɛnsk 15:47, 14 June 2009 (UTC)

Hi Intesvensk. The article on Mucke is neither a speedy nor a prod but it is a possible candidate for AfD. The reason this is not a speedy, is because the only two bases it could possibly fall under (unless of course it turns out to be a copyvio) are A7 and G11. As to the first, all that is required to avoid A7 is a mere assertion of importance. This has that in spades. As for the second, it does not read as blatant spam that would have to be fundamentally rewritten. It's not a Prod because proposed deletion is only for uncontroversial deletions, and an article which cites multiple sources, and is as well developed as this one is would not be uncontroversial. If you do decide to take it to AfD I would first search yourself to see whether he meets the standards at WP:ACADEMIC and elsewhere. As noted at AfD, "When nominating an article for deletion due to sourcing or notability concerns, make a good-faith attempt to confirm that such sources aren't likely to exist." There are many claims in the article and a quick search of google books and web indicates to me that he's probably not a good AfD target. For the moment I am going to go stick {{primarysources}} on the article. Cheers.--Fuhghettaboutit (talk) 16:00, 14 June 2009 (UTC)
  • I fully agree with Fuh. above, ie it's not CSD or PROD
  • This doesn't require an 'adminhelp' - a normal 'helpme' would do just fine (but please do ask for help any time you need it)
  • If the article was created now, it would almost certainly be deleted, because it lacks any non-primary sources; I did some searching, and whilst I agree the person is notable, I cannot find secondary sources to verify the information. I don't like seeing things like this sit around forever, so I've done a bit to try and sort it out. Firstly, I've moved the self-refs to a section called 'Bibliographic notes' - they simply should not sit there as sources. Secondly, I changed the above tag from 'primary sourced' to 'BLP unreferenced'. Thirdly, I tried to source information; I could not find sources (with google books, google scholar, etc) therefore I tagged up and removed info as I believe appropriate, per WP:V - "Any material lacking a reliable source may be removed".  Chzz  ►  16:43, 14 June 2009 (UTC)

Using paper sources[edit]

{{helpme}} I've been reading through the various policies that relate to this matter but I'm not sure about how to proceed. Maybe someone with more experience can help. I am currently writing an article about Mullingstorp (a psychotherapy institute in Sweden) and have several reliable sources. The problem I have is that although the newspapers have websites, these particular articles are a little bit too old to have been digitised (they come from 1999-2000 time). I have paper copies of the articles that I can scan in and upload as images to prove that I'm not just making stuff up but I don't want to break any copyright laws. Can someone advise me on what is the best thing to do? Is it ok to scan the articles and then provide a link or is this either bad form from a style point of view or a breach of copyright policy? Thanks for your input. ɪntəsvɛnsk 12:52, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

Hi there!
Some articles are published here:
I think "Dagens Nyheter" is the biggest paper in Sweden, so it should be a good source.
Kwiki (talk) 13:19, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
  • Don't scan copyrighted materials and link them on Wikipedia, please. Just cite the publication. There is guidance at WP:CITE.—S Marshall Talk/Cont 15:59, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

Edith Södergran[edit]

Hello there, thanks for doing such a nice translation of the Swedish article on Södergran - much of the Swedish original is my work and it runs smoothly and with a nuanced feeling here. I made some corrections and lifted out a piece of spam at the end which had been around in the original text for a while and drifted over to here - already corrected that bit at the Swedish WP. I'll be coming back to both versions of it but it looks very good. Would you care to take a look at the Swedish Karin Boye article too some day? That's another one where I made a lot of input to lift a rather bare piece.

I'm a translator myself and trilingual Swedish/English/French, so I'm happy to collaborate and perhaps expand some articles on English writers at the Swedish WP. Thanks again!!Strausszek (talk) 14:43, 6 March 2010 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Pride 2014[edit]

Hi Intesvensk. In case you are not aware, there is an upcoming campaign to improve coverage of LGBT-related topics on Wikipedia, culminating with an international edit-a-thon on June 21. See Wiki Loves Pride 2014 for more information. If you are interested, you might consider creating a page for a major city (or cities!) near you, with a list of LGBT-related articles that need to be created or improved. This would be a tremendous help to Wikipedia and coverage of LGBT culture and history. Thanks for your consideration, and please let me know if you have any questions! --Another Believer (Talk) 15:58, 9 May 2014 (UTC)
