We have a problem. Help please.[edit]

Sorry but we have a problem. Some one is giving false info on the Islam in Iceland page. Giving false data. On the number of Muslims living in Iceland.

The Iclandic "Hagstofa" records everything of the matter. And their are 402 Muslims now living in Iceland.öldi

Iceland is a very small country with a very small population so most things like this are recorded. I just want something done about this persons account who is making this false info editing.

I care about this website and always want to give facts with links to suport them. False info editing is a problem we need to deal with.

Thanks in advance. —Preceding unsigned comment added by AdalDrottinn (talkcontribs) 22:52, 29 August 2009 (UTC)

Figured out how to access the referenced article and made the following change "The Association of Muslims in Iceland had 341 members in 2006<ref name="US">[ International Religious Freedom Report 2006]</ref>, which had grown to 402 in 2008<ref>{{cite web | title = Statistics Iceland | date = 2009 | url = | format = English | accessdate = 29 August 2009}}</ref>." Hopefully this addresses your concerns - if not send me another note.
Thanks - Williamborg (Bill) 23:47, 29 August 2009 (UTC)

Thank you for your responds. I hope you can help me add some links. Also sorry to bother you. There are about 600 people in Iceland that have a backround from a country that has majority Muslim population. Some are of Bahai faith and most are Muslim. So the false claim that more than 1200 Muslims live here holds no water. That wouled mean that we had a few hundred Icelandic converts that didnt want to register as Muslims for some reson. The claim is ridiculous. If he/she had claimed it were 500-600 in stead of 402 I would have left it alone. I live in Reykjvík btw and never see any Muslims here. —Preceding unsigned comment added by AdalDrottinn (talkcontribs) 00:13, 30 August 2009 (UTC)

"clastic dike" not "clastic flow"[edit]

Thanks for uploading photos on the Touchet Formation of Washington state. I noticed an error in the caption for one of the photos (4th from top). It should read "Clastic dike penetrating Touchet layers. Photo taken in a road cut several miles up the Touchet Valley." Change "flow" to "dike" for accuracy. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:19, 6 September 2009 (UTC)

Good catch! Change made. Thanks - Williamborg (Bill) 14:31, 6 September 2009 (UTC)

Deletion of the link to the website containing pictures of all national parks of Norway[edit]

Hello, on the 'List of national parks of Norway' there was my link to the website covering all existing and planned national parks of Norway (Goahteluoppal, Sjunkhatten etc. - I also updated the Wiki page with these parks) but it has been deleted by anti-spammers. The link was It might have been considered as the 'self-promotion'. Please consider readdition of the link (I am not allowed to do so) if you find the source valuable. Some upload of pictures to Wikipedia may also be considered with the correct crediting. Also other links to disappeared: from Lists of national parks of Sweden, Poland, Slovakia and Germany. [1] [2] [3] [4] The same ask for help regards these links. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:00, 11 September 2009 (UTC)

Hanford Site[edit]

Uranium Trioxide / Uranium Oxide plant - thanks for pointing that out... i tried to fix it. i combined it all into on and added info/refs. see what you think.

obviously the subject of processing facilities at hanford could have its own page but i dont feel like making it.

as for the 'see also' section, i have no idea why i put stuff in there. i just thought 'hmm,,, how about mentioning some other nuclear resrearch sites in the USA'. it seemed a bit silly to have a page on hanford without mentioning any of the other sites that it routinely interacted with an that were a part of the nuclear complex of the US. please feel free to delete/rerrange/add/whatever.

i think maybe eventually they need one of those big infobox type things at the bottom of the page, you know, like they have for other areas of interest.

thanks again for catching my mistake!!!!!!!!!! Decora (talk) 22:20, 5 October 2009 (UTC)

It is of interest to note that among the more populous nations the nation with the highest per capita generation of electrical energy according to data in the annual World Almanac (data for 2005) is Norway. The generation in billions of kilowatthours is 135.8, the population is 4,627,926, and this results in a per capita figure of 29,344 kwhs per annum per person. The fact that hydro is plentiful evidently in Norway and that some, perhaps much, of the energy is sold to neighboring nations, even nations across the Baltic straits, might be a factor. Even so, this is more than twice the per capita generation of the U.S., often considered to be the nation with the greatest energy appetite. It also might be noted that other nations, including Canada and Sweden, rank higher than the U.S. and Finland comes in close behind. It would be of interest to me if this might be verified by others as a matter to be made more widely known. (talk) 02:02, 19 December 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for the cleanup[edit]

Hi, Matt here. Thanks for cleaning up so many articles I've started... I am just getting the hang of this thing, and I have not always been good about all the little steps, like project designations. I welcome any thoughts, comments, criticisms, or suggestions you have. Happy geo-editing!--Qfl247 (talk) 05:23, 6 January 2010 (UTC)

DYK: Infragravity waves[edit]

You're welcome, Williamborg. Thank you for the interesting article. Till I came across this article of yours, I didn't know that things happening on the North American coast affect the Antarctica like that. Thank you sharing the knowledge. Please feel free to post alternate hooks for DYK on T:TDYK. Happy editing. Cheers! --PFHLai (talk) 23:59, 22 February 2010 (UTC)

Medicinernes Skiklub Svartor[edit]

Hello. I am contacting you because you are listed as a participant for WikiProject Norway, and the above-mentioned article is sourced by all Norwegian-language references. Moreover, the references do not appear to support notability; they might be mere trivial references to the subject. Since these sources are all offline, and I do not speak or read Norwegian, I'm hoping whether you can assist me in determining whether the article qualifies for speedy deletion. Many thanks! CobaltBlueTony™ talk 12:30, 18 March 2010 (UTC)

I see you've already had responses - sorry about the delay, but the real world is taking a bit of time these days. The article is not highly notable, but not a candidate for speedy deletion either. Skål - Williamborg (Bill) 18:14, 21 March 2010 (UTC)

You are now a Reviewer[edit]

Redaktor Wikipedia 600px.png

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, will be commencing a two-month trial at approximately 23:00, 2010 June 15 (UTC).

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under flagged protection. Flagged protection is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Courcelles (talk) 20:11, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Yeager-Rock-Erractic-PB110039.JPG[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:Yeager-Rock-Erractic-PB110039.JPG requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia.

Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page 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 page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Cirque de Navacelles[edit]

I noticed your latest intelligent edit on the Cirques page- as a non geologists- I remain frustrated by the use of the ambiguous term, to refer just to corries and cwms. The problem I have is that I annually pass the Cirque de Navacelles and the fr:Cirque du Bout de Monde, in Herault which are fluvial cirques in Kaarst landscape while I have many times visited the Cirque de Gavarnie which is a classic glacial cwm. The error permeates many articles- and spreads onto commons. Do you have the time, knowledge and inclination to try sort out the mess.

The French link leads to a category giving other fluvial cirques, I really haven't the geology references in English needed to do this myself but will give all assistance. --ClemRutter (talk) 23:22, 5 September 2012 (UTC)

Santé - Williamborg (Bill) 00:39, 6 September 2012 (UTC)
To add to the confusion, I gave you a reference to the wrong cirque! A better reference I thought the image looked wrong. It doesn't materially change the issue. Cheers. --ClemRutter (talk) 06:40, 6 September 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for the input. At least the student is now aware of this group of landforms. I tx'ed a comment over to form an nb. We now have all the problems of the lede not reflecting the article and the usual style stuff to address. But this seems to be a big change for some so I am content to let it move slowly. I can now put a little input into Navacelles and Bout du Monde (Herault). We will wait and see what the reaction will be. --ClemRutter (talk) 11:04, 7 September 2012 (UTC)

Hi! How are you doing? If school doesn't have you too busy you might be amused with my latest effort ("hot off the press", as we used to say): Siletzia.
