German Wikipedia Does anybody know what's the matter with German Wikipedia at the moment? Are they experimenting or what? Or is this an old version I see now?

Could somebody check on that? Reykholt (talk) 21:11, 10 August 2011 (UTC)

Haraldur Sigurdsson / Sigurðsson:

Sorry, I didn`t want to take the text out. Can you reconstruct it?

But the name should be spelled in Icelandic with a "redirect" from the English spelling.

Hi Reykholt, I hope you like the place and choose to stay.

Some links that may be of use:

Check out the Wikipedia:New user log, or here's some stuff you can do, if you want:

You can help improve the articles listed below! This list updates frequently, so check back here for more tasks to try. (See Wikipedia:Task Center for brief guides.)

Help counter systemic bias by creating new articles on important women.

Help improve popular pages, especially those of low quality.

Tip: please use "External links" instead of "External Links" - Wikipedia convention is to only uppercase the first letter and any proper nouns in the header. Don't worry about fixing the ones you've done, I'll go through and fix them for you later :)

Keep contributing, however, looks like some great edits so far :) Dysprosia 12:42, 22 May 2004 (UTC)

Thank you. By the way, I am also working for the German and French editions.

Reykholt 13:11, 22 May 2004 (UTC)

Most of the redirect you created were broken. In some you added a blank between the "#" and the REDIRECT text, in other you added an empty second line. To have them working they need to be exactly one line of text, containing exactly the text #REDIRECT [[pagename]] - only the caps is optional. Keep on the good work. andy 19:19, 28 May 2004 (UTC)

Article Licensing[edit]

Hi, I've started a drive to get users to multi-license all of their contributions that they've made to either (1) all U.S. state, county, and city articles or (2) all articles, using the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike (CC-by-sa) v1.0 and v2.0 Licenses or into the public domain if they prefer. The CC-by-sa license is a true free documentation license that is similar to Wikipedia's license, the GFDL, but it allows other projects, such as WikiTravel, to use our articles. Since you are among the top 2000 Wikipedians by edits, I was wondering if you would be willing to multi-license all of your contributions or at minimum those on the geographic articles. Over 90% of people asked have agreed. For More Information:

To allow us to track those users who muli-license their contributions, many users copy and paste the "{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}" template into their user page, but there are other options at Template messages/User namespace. The following examples could also copied and pasted into your user page:

Option 1
I agree to [[Wikipedia:Multi-licensing|multi-license]] all my contributions, with the exception of my user pages, as described below:


Option 2
I agree to [[Wikipedia:Multi-licensing|multi-license]] all my contributions to any [[U.S. state]], county, or city article as described below:

Or if you wanted to place your work into the public domain, you could replace "{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}" with "{{MultiLicensePD}}". If you only prefer using the GFDL, I would like to know that too. Please let me know what you think at my talk page. It's important to know either way so no one keeps asking. -- Ram-Man (comment| talk)

Disambiguation link notification for August 19[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited List of volcanoes in Iceland, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Katla (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.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

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.

Please claim your upload(s): File:Vatnajökull.jpg[edit]

Hi, This image was seemingly uploaded prior to current image polices, Thank you.

However, as part of ongoing efforts to ensure all media on English Wikipedia is correctly licensed and attributed it would be appreciated if you were able to confirm, that it was your own work, by marking it as {{own}}, amending the {{information}} added by a third party, and by changing the license to an appropriate "self" variant. You can also add |claimed=yes to the {{Media by uploader}} or {{Presumed self}} tag(s) if present to indicate that you've acknowledged the image, and license shown (and updated the {{information}} where appropriate).

This will assist those reviewing the many many "free" images on commons that have not yet been transferred to Commons. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 21:09, 9 August 2016 (UTC)

DYK for List of Icelandic writers[edit]

Updated DYK query.svgOn 2 July 2018, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article List of Icelandic writers, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that Iceland has the highest number of writers, books published, and books read per capita? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/List of Icelandic writers. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, List of Icelandic writers), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.
