Swedish female authors[edit]

Hi, having done articles on Marika Stiernstedt and Anna Lenah Elgström based at least initially on the corresponding SE wiki articles, I though it it might be a good idea to see what other female SE-language authors there are SE Wiki articles for but not EN-Wiki articles, and see if more could not be written here on EN-Wiki. I do not propose to do this entirely through machine translation as I think the standards of the two wikis differ in some respects, but it is useful for a first-pass.

The goal is to write articles that are at least viable stubs for each. For this I would be looking at at least 3kb of data in each with three sources, at least two of which are clearly significant coverage of the subject.

I came up with the following list based on the SE Wiki list of SE-language authors with on SE-wiki. I intend to go through this list and mark all the ones that no WP:NAUTHOR or WP:BASIC-passing article can be written about and mark them as  Not done. Anyone who wants to help on this can mark an article they want to work on as  Doing.... Obviously once they are done the link will turn blue, but you can also mark them as  Done. Please feel free to add any that are missing, see if any of the ones marked "not done" can actually pass WP:NAUTHOR/WP:BASIC or point out if we do have an EN-language article but it just isn't trans-wikied properly. If you do use the SE wiki article, don't forget to credit it appropriately.

Swedish video[edit]

Is there anyone who could write what was told in this video at 2:28:32? Eurohunter (talk) 17:46, 31 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It won't load for me, sorry. Draken Bowser (talk) 12:49, 6 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Draken Bowser: I tried for a few times, and it finally started. I just noticed that there are subtitles, so I will try it. Eurohunter (talk) 13:14, 6 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello, coming across this file, I was wondering if this is Varberg Lotje (talk) 05:56, 4 August 2023 (UTC) If positive, it could be added to the c:Category:Varberg in the 17th century. Thank you for your time. Lotje (talk) 05:56, 4 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The municipal art coordinator says it is. [1] Draken Bowser (talk) 06:08, 4 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
 Done and thank you ever so much for your kind help. Lotje (talk) 08:49, 4 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I’d like help researching an article[edit]

Ghost fliers

Documented "flap" (wave) of UFO sightings across Scandinavia in the 1930s. Not even mentioned at List of reported UFO sightings, but even the NYT covered it briefly (paywalled archive). Finnish WP page at fi:Kummituslentokoneet.

Help finding Swedish-language sources would be extremely helpful. RadioactiveBoulevardier (talk) 07:23, 24 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

UFO-Sverige has some material like . A search for "spökflyg" yields a number of hits.Sjö (talk) 07:42, 24 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Mecanum wheel[edit]

I would like to update the diagram on the Mecanum wheel in order to make it more accessaible. While the diagram is accurate, it could be significantly better as it does not show the vector components or explain the physics of why the body moves in the directions indicated. I am capable of making my own diagram. However, I'm not sure how to site a source. There are numerous youtube videos on the topic, but I imagine that I need to provide something more substantial. Is referencing a blog-page acceptable? Spirail (talk) 13:49, 25 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Generally blogs are not considered reliable sources unless they are written by a noted expert.★Trekker (talk) 14:09, 25 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

"Boten Anna" at number one in Spotify (Sweden)[edit]

According to Göteborgs-Posten "Boten Anna" is a number one on Spotify in Sweden but according to Spotify's list "Boten Anna" is currently at number 27. What do they mean? Eurohunter (talk) 12:36, 26 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Unclear, since she doesn't specify by what metric it is "the biggest hit", other than according to spotify. I wouldn't mull over it, especially if it fails verification. Draken Bowser (talk) 15:41, 26 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Johan Floderus[edit]

Hello! I just wanted to mention that I'm working on a draft for an article about Johan Floderus, a Swedish diplomat and EU official who, as recently reported by the NYT, has been detained in Iran since April 2022.

Just looking for proper sources and assembling the text has been quite a time-consuming process (and I haven't even started working on the main section, yet!), so if anyone can help me complete the draft, I'd hugely appreciate it. Oltrepier (talk) 16:53, 6 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello again, I've just finished working on the draft and moved it to the mainspace: now you can find it here.
Like I said before, any help or feedback would be greatly appreciated!
(Also, I've inserted the "diplomat" specification, in order to distinguish Floderus from an eponymous philologist and priest who is similarly registered on Wikidata). Oltrepier (talk) 15:02, 7 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

There is a requested move discussion at Talk:Limpa#Requested move 13 September 2023 that may be of interest to members of this WikiProject. Lightoil (talk) 14:28, 20 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Women in Green's 5th Edit-a-thon[edit]

Hello WikiProject Sweden:

WikiProject Women in Green is holding a month-long Good Article Edit-a-thon event in October 2023!

Running from October 1 to 31, 2023, WikiProject Women in Green (WiG) is hosting a Good Article (GA) edit-a-thon event with the theme Around the World in 31 Days! All experience levels welcome. Never worked on a GA project before? We'll teach you how to get started. Or maybe you're an old hand at GAs – we'd love to have you involved! Participants are invited to work on nominating and/or reviewing GA submissions related to women and women's works (e.g., books, films) during the event period. We hope to collectively cover article subjects from at least 31 countries (or broader international articles) by month's end. GA resources and one-on-one support will be provided by experienced GA editors, and participants will have the opportunity to earn a special WiG barnstar for their efforts.

We hope to see you there!
