Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Master of Fogdö[edit]

Hi Yakikaki: I thought you might be interested in this one. Perhaps you can add some additional material or references. Hope everything is going well with you.--Ipigott (talk) 14:44, 2 September 2016 (UTC)

Hi Ipigott, thanks for the heads up. I looked in my books and hope I can help bring some clarity; I've added my input at the discussion page. Here all is fine, I hope with you as well. All the best, Yakikaki (talk) 06:29, 3 September 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for adding extensive explanations to the deletion discussion. Depending on the outcome, you might like to add something to one or both articles. In any case, if there is a decision to merge, it looks to me as if you might be the best person to take it on.--Ipigott (talk) 08:41, 3 September 2016 (UTC)
I'll be happy to help out as best I can. Most of the coming week I will be travelling in work but then I should have some more time. Yakikaki (talk) 12:01, 3 September 2016 (UTC)

Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic)[edit]

Hi, I've set up a page, feel free to begin listing your entries on the 1000 list. Can you spread the word and alert the others? Cheers.♦ Dr. Blofeld 19:37, 13 September 2016 (UTC)

Will do! Thanks a lot for setting it up, looks great! Yakikaki (talk) 19:46, 13 September 2016 (UTC)

Merge[edit]

I think you will find instructions on merging articles somewhere in Wikipedia. At the simplest level, it is a matter of combining the two articles, but normally it is then necessary to edit out duplicated material. In all cases with article merging, the article merged from is replaced by a Redirect to the target, but it is also necessary to check for double redirects and change them. See Wikipedia:Merging. Peterkingiron (talk) 15:05, 18 September 2016 (UTC)

Thank you Peterkingiron for your kind answer. I'm embarrassed as I could easily have looked this up myself rather than bother you. I will do it in the coming days. Kind regards, Yakikaki (talk) 19:20, 19 September 2016 (UTC)

Oooooh!! :)[edit]

This is looking very promising! :D Even if the code is re-used, you are certainly giving it your very own personal touch. Very good design, I'm impressed! And the little fire is sooo appropriate and welcoming. cart-Talk 23:29, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

Thank you, thank you! :) I'll keep working on it but I'm also quite satisfied with how it's taken off. Thanks again for letting me use your code. Yakikaki (talk) 07:11, 24 September 2016 (UTC)
You're welcome. Don't remove the clock, it works as well as any of these "userbox clocks" do. It will reset to the correct time every time you refresh the page or click on the "refresh" sign on it. They are not ticking continuously as some you can mark for your own view in your 'Preferences'. And you also have to set it on the right time zone. cart-Talk 12:56, 24 September 2016 (UTC)

Baltic challenge[edit]

Hi, enough to do with Nordic region as it is haha but I vaguely remember you doing Latvian lighthouses or something. If you think you might do more articles on that region sometime or know anybody who might be interested, comments and input welcome at here.♦ Dr. Blofeld 19:26, 26 September 2016 (UTC)

Hi Blofeld! Haha, yes it suddenly became a lot... But I'm very interested, trying to increase the coverage of the Baltic states was why I started on Wikipedia in the first place – I'll sign up and hope I can find the time for it! :) Yakikaki (talk) 15:58, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
PS: I think it might be an idea to send out invitations to respective country's, i.e. Estonia, Latvia & Lithuania, project page (though I guess you've already thought about it). Yakikaki (talk) 16:03, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
Yes, the project members were notified. Perhaps it's best not to start another one for now. It does add to the workload for me because I feel compelled to keep contributing when I can to help out!♦ Dr. Blofeld 16:17, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
Haha, yes that's perfectly understandable! But I'll be there when you want to in the future ;) Yakikaki (talk) 16:19, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
Blofeld: Another idea, if you're anyway going to expand the Nordic challenge, is to include the Baltic states in it. It would be quite natural I think considering the strong links between the regions anyway and this way you'd be saved the extra trouble. Yakikaki (talk) 19:21, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
Haha, great minds think alike! I was going to suggest the same thing. Would we change the challenge naming slightly to Nordic/Baltic, or can we get away with including those nations in nordic?♦ Dr. Blofeld 10:33, 28 September 2016 (UTC)
@Dr. Blofeld:I think it would be more correct to call it Nordic-Baltic (or why not the NB8?) since, as far as I know, neither Latvia nor Lithuania aspires to be called Nordic and the Nordic can be a bit sensitive about it. Best, Yakikaki (talk) 18:13, 28 September 2016 (UTC)

Great, I'll dig into it at once :) Yakikaki (talk) 15:15, 1 November 2016 (UTC)

For the Nordic ones, continue adding them to the Nordsic challengre rather than the European one. Every 100 articles I'll then "tip" in the entries to the main 10,000 one, so that Swedish one can go on the Nordic one for now. Thanks for the recent entries!♦ Dr. Blofeld 19:58, 1 November 2016 (UTC)

About talk pages[edit]

Hey man, could you add the Biography WikiProject template to the talk pages of biographies you write? You do really good work, but I think that you should try to save a wikignome or two some work by adding the Biography template. Best wishes; Non multa, sed Vicipediae. --Vami_IV 04:28, 3 November 2016 (UTC)

Okay, I mostly retract my statements. Just had to add the bio template to some of your articles, and the listas parameter to a lot of others. --Vami_IV 04:37, 3 November 2016 (UTC)
Hey there, thanks for the heads up, I know I should pay more attention to the talk pages in general - I'll try to keep it in mind! Ciao, Yakikaki (talk) 17:06, 3 November 2016 (UTC)

Europe 10,000 Challenge invite[edit]

Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Europe/The 10,000 Challenge has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge. The idea is not to record every minor edit, but to create a momentum to motivate editors to produce good content improvements and creations and inspire people to work on more countries than they might otherwise work on. There's also the possibility of establishing smaller country or regional challenges for places like Germany, Italy, the Benelux countries, Iberian Peninsula, Romania, Slovenia etc, much like Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). For this to really work we need diversity and exciting content and editors from a broad range of countries regularly contributing. If you would like to see masses of articles being improved for Europe and your specialist country like Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon, sign up today and once the challenge starts a contest can be organized. This is a way we can target every country of Europe, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia. We need numbers to make this work so consider signing up as a participant and also sign under any country sub challenge on the page that you might contribute to! Thank you. --MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 21:09, 7 November 2016 (UTC)
