Flora: number of plants

It cannot be correct that only 400 kinds of plants exist on the Faroe Islands, since there are at least 400 species of bryophytes (mosses, liverworts & hornworts) only. (Lindbergia, Dutch & Nordic Bryological Societies, 1976). -HdB

I wasn't aware of this project until recently. I'll endeavour to add stuff as and when I can, but I don't pretend to know much about Faroe. I have already created one or two relevant articles such as Languages of the Faroe Islands. I have also added some Faroese content to articles such as Papar and Norse-Gaels.

If you are interested, there is a semi-related project at - Wikipedia:WikiProject Scottish Islands, which includes Orkney and Shetland. (Please note, I do not automatically assume that Shetland and Orkney are Scottish - I think they have the right to self-determination as they wish, just as Scotland should have from Britain. I am aware of their history...) I will advertise the Faroese project over on the WPSI page too. --MacRusgail 17:59, 22 October 2007 (UTC)

Super, unfortunately I do not know much about Orkney and Shetland except where they are located ;-) I created this project about half a year ago and it is not very active yet, but hopefully it will be (some day :-) uackor 16:57, 23 October 2007 (UTC)
I'm hoping there could be some "cross-fertilisation" too. We've been working hard to try and set up decent infoboxes for all the islands. I think the Greek islands have the best ones so far from what I can tell. --MacRusgail 14:23, 24 October 2007 (UTC)

Danish parliamentary election, 2007

Could someone please take a look at the Faroe Islands part of the Danish parliamentary election, 2007 article? I live in Denmark and have no idea which parties from the Faroe Islands are able to run. Currently, several Faroese parties are listed as "likely to run", and it would be nice to move them to either the "running" or "not running" sections if and when it is known whether they will run or not.
