maria by leigh

Maria is a painting that has a dark history In 1703 a women named maria painted a picture she named it after herself and people believe that she even mixed her own blood in it now maria kept this painting in her attic as she didn't want her husband to know about it but years later in 1724 she passed away and somebody else moved in they discovered the painting and hanged it on the wall they just thought it was a normal painting that they'd put in the the attic but little did they know its secrets. About a week after the painting was hanged on the wall straight away the home owners noticed its strange behaviour the home owners claim they would hear weird noises coming from the painting and also the painting would stare right at them and and they even claimed that the women's eyes in the painting would move of course this creeped them out and they took it down and threw it out but a few days later it was on the wall and the creepy thing is when the home owners asked each other if they'd hanged it back up they all said no of course a few days later they asked the local church to come and sage there house and when they did the spirit was the spirit of maria and that shed killed her husbands sister and it turns out the blood on the painting thought to be hers was her husbands sisters of course the home owners were shocked and put the painting back in the attic. The painting was discovered in 1966 in the attic of the home and put in a museum its not known what museum but at least its safe now put people who apparently dare to look at the painting for too long will die or will have bad luck. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:14, 26 January 2019 (UTC)

Help improve: Guro Fjellanger

Guro Fjellanger needs improvement before appearing at ITN. I could use help of someone that has a grasp of the languages used by the sources. --- Coffeeandcrumbs 03:13, 19 April 2019 (UTC)

Restore removed sections?

From Wikipedia:Naming conventions (geographic names) (section permalink) is a link to Wikipedia:WikiProject Norway#Naming. That section does not exist.

Looking at the history, it was removed in Special:Diff/267539604/270634715, a major and apparently undiscussed edit that moved some contents to transcluded subpages. Should we restore some of this or transclude some of it from a new subpage? Sam Sailor 08:47, 3 May 2019 (UTC)

Question & Verification

Hi all,

would please a Norwegian-speaking person verifiy if this edit ([1]) that the IP pushes is correct? Thank You(KIENGIR (talk) 17:27, 13 May 2019 (UTC))

Not correct IMHO. You can use "fører" in compound, non-political Norwegian words like "hundefører", just like you would use "Hundeführer" in German. You can also use Norwegian "fører" for the leader of a fascist or national socialist movement. The German and Norwegian words seem mostly equivalent to me. Regards, Kjetil_r 20:07, 15 May 2019 (UTC)
I agree with Kjetil_r. The noun fører can be applied in many circumstances, which makes it translatable in to a variety of different English words like leader, guide and driver. The latter is perhaps the first meaning that springs to mind for a Norwegian. It is for me at least, but I can't think of any word more suited for translating Hitler's title. Ters (talk) 20:33, 16 May 2019 (UTC)
Kjetil r (talk · contribs) states it correctly. According to the NAOB there are at least 6 different usages of the word in Norwegian: Nsaa (talk) 06:33, 24 May 2019 (UTC)

Occupied television ratings

I need some help filling in the domestic television ratings for the Norwegian TV show Occupied. I managed to find some sources, but reached a dead end on others. Jay Coop · Talk · Contributions 09:21, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

I have been looking through the Norwegian news archive but unable to find any. Season 2 wasn't available on linear TV before May 2018, so you probably won't find any ratings for that season anywhere. --torstein (talk) 21:10, 10 June 2019 (UTC)
Thanks anyway for the help. I greatly appreciate it. Jay Coop · Talk · Contributions 21:35, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

Looking for a Wikipedian who can translate from Norwegian

An editor contested a machine translation of a quote from a Norwegian website which I inserted into an article. Is there anyone here who can offer a proper translation? PCHS-NJROTC (Messages)Have a blessed day. 16:07, 22 June 2019 (UTC)

Done in Special:Diff/902960867/902971929. Best, Sam Sailor 17:08, 22 June 2019 (UTC)

Draft:Forlagshuset Vigmostad Bjørke

Hello -- Could anyone here help out with Draft:Forlagshuset Vigmostad Bjørke, which I recently saved from G13 deletion; the company has an article on the Norwegian encyclopedia [2] as well as on Nynorsk [3], but I am having trouble finding English-language free online sources. Thanks, Espresso Addict (talk) 06:08, 6 July 2019 (UTC)

Question about references

This would normally something I would bring up at WP:RSN but since it deals with Norwegian, I thought better to come here first. Can anyone tell me if the following references would meet the guidelines for WP:RSes? Using this to determine notability for AfC submission (and future submissions). --CNMall41 (talk) 06:38, 10 July 2019 (UTC)

The first three are Norwegian newspapers (full names: Dagens Næringsliv, Dagsavisen, and Dagbladet, respectively), whereas the last hyperlink is merely the Norwegian-language version of Facebook. Accordingly, only the first three references can be used as regular/valid references in articles. Best regards, Annelingua (talk) 16:38, 24 July 2019 (UTC)
Fredriksstad Blad is actually the local newspaper of the city Fredrikstad. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2A02:2121:2C0:9FF5:C028:1C50:7BD4:7D9 (talk) 02:05, 25 July 2019 (UTC)
Thank you. --CNMall41 (talk) 20:04, 25 July 2019 (UTC)
All four references listed above are described in their own WP pages: Dagens Næringsliv, Dagsavisen, Dagbladet, and Fredriksstad Blad. They are all well established newspapers founded in the period 1869–1889. Best regards, KV (talk) 18:27, 31 July 2019 (UTC)
