Welcome!

Hello, Snaevar, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Unfortunately, one or more of the pages you created, such as 200.000 naglbítar, may not conform to some of Wikipedia's guidelines, and may soon be deleted.

There's a page about creating articles you may want to read called Your first article. If you are stuck, and looking for help, please come to the New contributors' help page, where experienced Wikipedians can answer any queries you have! Or, you can just type {{helpme}} on this page, and someone will show up shortly to answer your questions. Here are a few other good links for newcomers:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your name and the date. If you have any questions, check out Wikipedia:Questions or ask me on my talk page. Again, welcome! Mo ainm~Talk 19:23, 27 August 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of 200.000 naglbítar[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on 200.000 naglbítar requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a band or musician, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for musical topics. You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles - see the Article Wizard.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag - if no such tag exists then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hangon tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, 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. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you. Mo ainm~Talk 19:23, 27 August 2010 (UTC)

Actually, I created that article becouse there was, and probably still is a request to have an english article on the matter. That request can be seen on the Icelandic chat page on the same matter. Also, becouse of that, I don´t care if that article exsists, or not.--Snaevar (talk) 23:46, 12 September 2010 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Groovefest American Music Festival, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Traveler (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Your edits to Template:SCOTUS-termlist-entry[edit]

Hi, I haven't had a chance yet to do a thorough comparison between my original template code and the Lua replacement you designed, but I've found only a few issues so far. I don't know Lua, but I was able to fix one of them (the title input into the case1 parameter was not supposed to wikilink),[1] but I don't know how to correct the page field, which should display ___ when no value is entered. Instead, it's not displaying anything. A bigger issue is that the opinion column sorting no longer works (this relied upon the "justice[#]-sortcode" field inputs). I've reverted to the original template code for now until the Lua code is functional in this regard. Thanks, postdlf (talk) 19:47, 30 September 2016 (UTC)

Fixed the two remaining issues. Tested the sorting issue on the first two entries of "2007 term opinions of the Supreme Court of the United States" and it worked fine there.--Snaevar (talk) 22:39, 30 September 2016 (UTC)
That was quick, looks good! Thank you! I have to say I'm impressed with your work on this, given that the template code was something that I had developed organically over the past decade as I added more and more functions and so was not very streamlined, but you analyzed it well and recreated its functionality with minimal issues. I'll let you know if I notice anything else. postdlf (talk) 23:05, 30 September 2016 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Database reports/Long pages datestamps[edit]

Could you adjust the datestamp on this report to be more parseable, for example by mw:Help:Extension:ParserFunctions##time? 17:20, August 19, 2015‎ (UTC) is confusing, I think because the commas serve multiple purposes. The closest clean analog to what you have is 17:20, 19 August 2015‎ (UTC), which is what most other Wikipedia:Database reports use. I don't know how this WP page is generated, so I don't know what program/script change would accomplish it. DMacks (talk) 07:51, 2 January 2017 (UTC)

Done.--Snaevar (talk) 20:50, 2 January 2017 (UTC)
Thanks! DMacks (talk) 21:17, 2 January 2017 (UTC)
Parser was still upset...it turned out there was some nonstandard whitespace or other nonprinting character between "2017" and "(UTC)". I changed it and now Wikipedia:Database reports is happy. DMacks (talk) 21:29, 2 January 2017 (UTC)

Hi. I happened to notice this edit and decided to stop by. I'm re-using this section, hope you don't mind.

Regarding the timestamp, it's usually easiest to use ~~~~~ (five tildes), which MediaWiki will automatically turn into a decent timestamp: 01:25, 24 January 2017 (UTC).

Regarding the report's update frequency, are you volunteering to keep this report updated monthly? If so, great! :-) If not, I may be able to (re-)set it to update more frequently. It's kind of strange that this report is broken, in some ways. Maybe someone figured Special:LongPages was good enough? I don't remember the report being particularly complex, so it's a bit strange that other reports are continuing to update but this one is not. It makes me think it might've been intentional, but I dunno. --MZMcBride (talk) 01:25, 24 January 2017 (UTC)

Err, actually, I happened to notice this edit. I looked at the report's page history after. --MZMcBride (talk) 02:02, 24 January 2017 (UTC)

Help clean up an auto-translation at is:Kannabis á Íslandi?[edit]

I gave the auto-translator a whirl since the article is quite short and grammatically simple. Would you mind taking a quick look to help clean it up?

Google Code-In 2019 is coming - please mentor some documentation tasks![edit]

Hello,

Google Code-In, Google-organized contest in which the Wikimedia Foundation participates, starts in a few weeks. This contest is about taking high school students into the world of opensource. I'm sending you this message because you recently edited a documentation page at the English Wikipedia.

I would like to ask you to take part in Google Code-In as a mentor. That would mean to prepare at least one task (it can be documentation related, or something else - the other categories are Code, Design, Quality Assurance and Outreach) for the participants, and help the student to complete it. Please sign up at the contest page and send us your Google account address to [email protected], so we can invite you in!

From my own experience, Google Code-In can be fun, you can make several new friends, attract new people to your wiki and make them part of your community.

If you have any questions, please let us know at [email protected]

Thank you!

April 2020[edit]

Information icon Hello. I noticed that you attempted to file a deletion discussion on the article TimedText:Jimi Hendrix performing "The Star Spangled Banner" at Woodstock, 18 August 1969.ogg.en.srt but did not complete the process. Please note that, when listing an article for deletion, a discussion page needs to be made for other users to discuss whether to keep or delete the article. This is typically done by following the steps listed here. Thank you. –LaundryPizza03 (d) 05:30, 13 April 2020 (UTC)

User:LaundryPizza03: That seemingly incomplete deletion was complete until this diff was made and here is my response to it. Note that the TimedText namespace (where my deletion nomination was made) does not display any templates properly. In addition to that reasoning I do not have the time to take part in this beurocratic process, as in this particular namespace it is misleading at best. As such, don´t expect any further actions on my part regarding this.--Snaevar (talk) 17:37, 13 April 2020 (UTC)

Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson[edit]

Hi Snaevar! In Persian Wikipedia, I'm having problems regarding the correct, standard Icelandic pronunciation of his name. Based on the IPA provided in the page (/ˈhafθour ˈjuːlijʏs ˈpjœrtn̥ssɔn/) and Help:IPA/Icelandic as well as Icelandic/Alphabet and Pronunciation, all "s" letters in his name should be pronounced like the English "s" (/s/), as in "sing". However, it is argued that the audio file in the page (provided below) somehow hears like English "sh" (/ʃ/), as in "shop". So, what is the correct standard pronunciation? Is IPA really incorrect? Thanks. MS 会話 06:12, 7 May 2020 (UTC)

The pronunciation and the sound file where both added by Þjarkur. The standard way of pronouncing the word is /s/, but the emphasis on the "s" is an North Iceland variation and as such is an acceptable way of saying it. In his edit summary Þjarkur mentioned the IPA dataset by the Icelandic linguistician Eiríkur Rögnvaldsson, which is in English here: http://notendur.hi.is/eirikur/ipv.pdf . On page 8, there is further explanation about the regional difference between the North Iceland variation as compared to the common way of saying those things.--Snaevar (talk) 19:53, 18 June 2020 (UTC)

Help to find user[edit]

Hello Snaevar, Would you help to find an user to write the article of Isabelle de Charrière (Q123386) for the Icelandic Wikipedia? That would be appreciated. Boss-well63 (talk) 12:35, 6 October 2020 (UTC)

WikidataIB[edit]

Thanks for the improvements to Module:WikidataIB/sandbox. Unfortunately, the functions like getAliases that have to load the entire entity are supposed to use the entity-id of the associated page if the qid parameter isn't provided, so when qid is nil, it's correct to call mw.wikibase.getEntity(qid) with a nil argument. You can test what happens for example by pasting

* = {{#invoke:WikidataIB |getAliases |fwd=ALL |qid=Q2191959}}
* = {{#invoke:WikidataIB/sandbox |getAliases |fwd=ALL |qid=Q2191959}}
* = {{#invoke:WikidataIB |getAliases |fwd=ALL}}
* = {{#invoke:WikidataIB/sandbox |getAliases |fwd=ALL}}

into Twospined angelfish and observing on preview that the last one returns nothing.

The fix is to change lines like

  • if not qid or not mw.wikibase.entityExists(qid) then return nil end

to allow nil qid values through:

  • if not mw.wikibase.entityExists(qid) then return nil end
