Føroyar Vælkomin á føroysku Wikipediu!

Hey Girdi, og vælkomin til føroysku Wikipediu! Takk fyri tíni ískoyti. Eg vóni, at tær dámar Wikipediu og ger av at verða verandi. Her eru nakrar góðar slóðir til nýggjar brúkarar:

--Girdi 15. sep 2007 kl. 04:07 (UTC)

Don't speak Faroese? Post {{Brúkari fo-0}} on your user page or put it into your babel box.


Hey Ice201, eg havi gjørt forsíðuna um aftur til tað hon var áðrenn tú broytti hana. Eg haldi at har skal gerast rættiliga nógv meira á Forsíða2 áðren hon kan brúkast sum Forsíða.

  1. Har eru ov nógvar rammur.
  2. Farvurnar eru ikki bleytar.
  3. Ovasti parturin sær ikki so gott út.

Ein loysn kundi verði at avrita íslendsku forsíðuna. Annars síggja bólkarni gott út (fyri uttan farvur og rammur). Eg havi fyribils friða forsíðuna soleiðis at hon ikki verður strika aftur. Tú kanst skriva eini boð á mína kjak síðu um Forsíða2 verður forbetra. Vh. uackor 3. aug 2007 kl. 14:44 (UTC)

Mér finnst það ikki góð loysn at avrita íslendsku forsíðuna. --S.Örvarr.S 3. aug 2007 kl. 16:36 (UTC)
Já, sammála S.Örvarr.S, men hvat heldur tú nú Quackor? Eg havi gjørt meira á forsíðuni, eins og ovasti parturin og visti tú og dagarmynd av commons. Tú getur (can) adda meira til visti tú. Anything is better then the forsíða now :S hehe --Ice201 3. aug 2007 kl. 17:11 (UTC)
Her manglar argumantatión?, hví er tað ikki gott at avrita íslendsku forsíðuna? Er enska forsíðan so heldur ikki góð? hvat við donsku? Eg veit ikki hvat fyri kagara (Browser) tit brúka men Forsíða2 sær ikki gott út í mínum Firefox ella IE. Annars er tekst innihaldi fínt, tað er bara designið sum manglar. uackor 4. aug 2007 kl. 14:36 (UTC)
Kagaran sum eg nota er IE, ikki Firefox. Men hví vil tú at avrita forsíðuna frá øðrum wikipedium? Vít skalu at vera orginal, er tað ikki? Hvat sérstakliga (specifically?) sær ikki gott í kagarinni tínni? Ovasti parturin ella eitthvat annars? --Ice201 4. aug 2007 kl. 14:46 (UTC)
At least change the colours on the forsíða so it can look at least distinguishable from the Icelandic. --Ice201 8. aug 2007 kl. 23:50 (UTC)
The page is semi-ready for viewing now. It would be great to get some feed back. Changing the colors would probably be a good idea. But what is most important is that the "Did you know..." section has some contents, and likewise that the "Hendingar" section has contents. uackor 16. aug 2007 kl. 21:26 (UTC)
Eg veit ikki hvat tú heldur um hetta nú. Eg var at royna at skipta lit til meira føroyskar litarra :) hehe. Men med Heindingum, kannski tað er betra at hava bara Hendingar í mánúðum fyri nú. We dont have a lot of activity to keep going hendingar daily, so lets start with hendingar for the month maybe. Otherwise, looking good .) --Ice201 17. aug 2007 kl. 14:57 (UTC)
I just want to thank you for deciding to use the forsíða I took part in making. Eg eri errin..ella "stoltur". =P --BiT
No prob., i have been thinking about remaking it for a long time, but it takes time so it has been delayed many times :-) uackor 15. sep 2007 kl. 19:16 (UTC)
Yeah but with my help to motivate Quackor, we finally did it, eh? :) Vel gert fyri okkur, er tað ikki? --Girdi 16. sep 2007 kl. 04:46 (UTC)

Nýggjur umboðsstjóriEdit

Hey Játi, tú ert nú umboðsstjóri á føroysku Wikipedia. Vælkomin :-) Hevur tú nakrar spurningar kanst tú seta teir á mína kjak síðu. uackor 10. sep 2007 kl. 12:08 (UTC)

Takk fyri tað! --Girdi 15. sep 2007 kl. 04:09 (UTC)

[en] Edit to Fyrimynd:Brúkari is-0Edit

Because Fyrimynd:Brúkari is-0 is protected (which I'm not sure why), I can't add en:Template:User is-0 to the template. Can you please make the edit for me? Thank you. EVula // kjak // 13. okt 2007 kl. 16:10 (UTC)

I've protected them because they are official templates of the Faroese wikipedia that have no real reason to be edited. They are protected for future planning when the wiki grows so we have no future vandalism of the official templates. And sure, I will add the interwiki, though I see no point of adding an interwiki for a language babel template, but sure, done. --Girdi 15. okt 2007 kl. 05:40 (UTC)
Ok EVula, I have unprotected them. You are right. It is pointless to keep them protected just incase if there is a native that spots a minor grammatical mistake that I failed to see. Thanks for helping me realise that! Cheers :) --Girdi 17. okt 2007 kl. 16:49 (UTC)
Thanks. :)
On en.wp, we've got en:Template:User en protected, but all the interwikis are called from the documentation, which isn't protected; this prevents vandalism, but still allows editors to make changes. Might not be a bad middle-ground. EVula // kjak // 17. okt 2007 kl. 18:38 (UTC)
On the English wiki it might be good idea to do this, but on Faroese wiki, we don't have much activity or vandalism here (yet) :). Maybe in the future we could protect it. Just takes a lot of time to go through every single one and protect it again haha, I timed it this time, took about 5 minutes. --Girdi 17. okt 2007 kl. 18:46 (UTC)

Deleting imagesEdit

Hi Girdi, why are you deleting so many images on the Wikipedia? And why are you not writing a reason!? This is very frustrating when there has gone a lot of time into uploading these images! Example:

(Striku logg); 19:53 . . Girdi (Kjak | íkøst | banna) (strikaði "Mynd:KviviksJogvan1.JPG")
Future advice: Write a reason. uackor 18. okt 2007 kl. 12:02 (UTC)
Forgive me for deleting without reason, but many images were without licenses and have been on the wiki for quite some time. And uncategorised. I will include a reason next time, sorri about that. --Girdi 18. okt 2007 kl. 15:46 (UTC)
!!!! You have deleted images which are legal, plz. recreate all images now! This is an example: Mynd:Lena anderssen.jpg. A lot of articles look crapy now that the images don't exist any more - here is a rule of thumb, if you delete an image 1. make soure it is not legal 2. remove the image from all pages which link to the image. uackor 31. okt 2007 kl. 10:42 (UTC)
If they are legal, then use Commons, what is wrong with that? Anything in uncategorised images is subject to deletion on most wikipedias becuase they don't have a valid license. These images have been on this wiki for a long time, and no one has attempted to fix them. If they are so important, then maybe a little more time concerning these images would have been better. Notice I did not delete the images which fall in categories here, although some I disagree is GFDL. There was a discussion in Undirhúsið about this for a good week, most agreed to delete images in the uncategorised images. Sysop's can still upload photos, you just have to click on the actual image to upload it. Maybe I haven't been on this wikiproject as long as you, but as a sysop someone has to play the bad man and delete images that don't have a home here, without proper licensing. We had a similar situation on the Icelandic wikipedia when I was in your situation and my images were all deleted by another user, it happens. --Girdi 31. okt 2007 kl. 16:43 (UTC)
They might be legal, but haven't been categorized properly. If they haven't, then they are a subject for deletion. Girdi, isn't there an is:Snið:ÓU template that you can use? --Steinninn 31. okt 2007 kl. 18:00 (UTC)
Out of respect for Quackor, I will halt deleting anymore images and just like you suggested Steinninn, use is:Snið:ÓU for future images that are not licensed correctly. (obviously after a faroese translation). We must be mindful about the future, if nothing would have been done now, imagine years and years from now when Faroese wiki has about 20.000 or 30.000 articles and 50x myndir, then it will be a huge mess and deletion of illegal images would take months. It's good we catch this at an early stage of the wiki. --Girdi 31. okt 2007 kl. 18:08 (UTC)
I have not looked at all the images you have deleted, but the example that i mention Mynd:Lena anderssen.jpg was labeled with GFDL [1]. As for "If they are legal, then use Commons" i know that this is something that the Icelandic wikipedia does, but this is not something that is general for all wikipedias (i.e.,da,de,en,...). Of course it would be nice if images where submitted directly to commons, but this does not mean that all images in fo.wikipedia.org have to be deleted right now. The Hlaða inn skrá is nice but not optimal, it is a long process to add a image (go to Hlaða inn skrá, go to commons, login, go to upload). uackor 2. nov 2007 kl. 14:32 (UTC)
PS. Do you know the English ÓU template? Maybe i could translate it. uackor 2. nov 2007 kl. 14:34 (UTC)
I will restore the GFDL, sorry about that. Just I have warned two users about uploading these photos (in faroese) without licenses or one person was obviously uploading photos from websites under GFDL. They ignored my warning. And I hate blocking since that is just childish on people who actually want to help the wiki, so I figured lets for now close the upload tool to only Sysops. If you don't like that, I guess we should open a new discussion in Undirhúsið and if we come to a decision we can let the Bugzilla guys know, but I already have made a nice front page translation on commons and need your help with the other faroese commons translations please. :) It doesn't take that long to upload a file on commons, actually I find it quicker. And if someone is say translating an article or a request from one wiki to another, it is SO much easier if that photo is on commons. I do that much, and it is annoying when translating an article with a nice photo but you can't use it cause it is on the local wiki server not commons :S . --Girdi 2. nov 2007 kl. 14:57 (UTC)
The tranlslation for ÓU is:

Information about this photo or file is not inadequate. After a week if it is not added then it will be deleted. Information about what is needed can be found on the Upload Site.

Please do not remove this message from the photos which you have uploaded. When you have added the needed information then you may ask an administrator or bereaucrat to go over them, and if it is acceptable and adequate then it this notice will be removed.


Sorry, can you translate this onto the language of this Wikipedia? "Almazán is a municipality located in the province of Soria, Castile and León, Spain." --Jeneme 11. nov 2007 kl. 12:29 (UTC)

Haha, I already did that for you in Chechen, remember? And not to mention you didn't even thank me. --Girdi 11. nov 2007 kl. 17:04 (UTC)
Yes, I'm sorry. I can't use Internet a lot of time and I forget important things like that. Thanks for all your help, I'm so stupid for not saying thanks. :-( --Jeneme 13. nov 2007 kl. 19:35 (UTC)

Ja, tú getur gert þetta ef þú vilt, svona er Wikipedia, ég er ekki með tíma núna til að breyta (rætta) útaf því háskólann. En takk fyrir að láta mig að vita, ef þú gerður það ekki þá ég skal gera breytinguna þegar ég finn tíma. :) --Girdi 21. jan 2009 kl. 17:54 (UTC)
Alt í lagi, so sendi eg hetta víðari til ein umboðsstjóra. Benadikt 21. jan 2009 kl. 18:04 (UTC)

Take a look at these imagesEdit

Hi! From what I can tell, you seem to be an admin here, so I'll just post this to you.

Take a look at the images this user has uploaded, because I suspect they're not available for free use. Thanks. Blåmes 11. nov 2010 kl. 17:46 (UTC)

Your admin statusEdit

Hello. I'm a steward. A new policy regarding the removal of "advanced rights" (administrator, bureaucrat, etc.) was adopted by community consensus recently. According to this policy, the stewards are reviewing administrators' activity on wikis with no inactivity policy.

You meet the inactivity criteria (no edits and no log actions for 2 years) on fowiki, where you are an administrator. Since fowiki does not have its own administrators' rights review process, the global one applies.

If you want to keep your rights, you should inform the community of the wiki about the fact that the stewards have sent you this information about your inactivity. If the community has a discussion about it and then wants you to keep your rights, please contact the stewards at m:Stewards' noticeboard, and link to the discussion of the local community, where they express their wish to continue to maintain the rights, and demonstrate a continued requirement to maintain these rights.

We stewards will evaluate the responses. If there is no response at all after approximately one month, we will proceed to remove your administrative rights. In cases of doubt, we will evaluate the responses and will refer a decision back to the local community for their comment and review. If you have any questions, please contact us on m:Stewards' noticeboard.
