Welkom! Waar het jy Afrikaans geleer? Terloops, jou land in Afrikaans is Noorweë. Groete, Alias 18:49, 14 Januarie 2008 (UTC)

Danki van die Welkom! Ek het Afrikaans geleer van sommige goeie friende van my (: Groete, EivindJ 12:06, 15 Januarie 2008 (UTC) (Terloops is a nice word!)


1 Thanks, Eivind, for your work with the disambiguity pages this morning - the letter pages in particular: it's something that was on my to-do list fot a very long time already.

I would also like to thank you for the sensible way you are contributing here: we have had numerous non-Afrikaans speakers who considered their command of Afrikaans sufficient to contribute to article content, usually with disastrous results. Anrie 16:18, 29 Januarie 2008 (UTC)

Thank you Anrie! I really feel welcome here at Afrikaans Wikipedia. I think this is a very nice way to learn the language (I'm going to SA soon), because I get in touch with the language even though I don't write it, and I can contribute at the same time. Luckily it is plenty of tasks one can do without having too much experience in Afrikaans … Feel free to tell me if there is tasks I can do which doesn't require that much knowledge to the language (: --EivindJ 16:32, 29 Januarie 2008 (UTC)


Hallo EivindJ

Please slow down your robot significantly - it will overpower the recent changes. Also, I'm wondering why it fixed the one link but not the others (# [http://www.icg.org/home/index.cfm?id=1172&l=1 International Crisis Group) on this page. --Alias (kontak) 12:13, 25 April 2008 (UTC)

Ok, I can slow it down, but I don't think I understood your question? I can't see that the others need any fixing of any sort. Care to explain? --EivindJ (kontak) 12:16, 25 April 2008 (UTC)
The bot is now down at about one edit per 20 or 30 seconds. Sufficient? --EivindJ (kontak) 12:22, 25 April 2008 (UTC)
Check the external link for the "International Crisis Group" in the Burundi article. If you will be running the robot for a significant time, please slow down more - think of how many edits 2*60*24 is at the end of a day :-) --Alias (kontak) 12:25, 25 April 2008 (UTC)
Ah, that one ... hm, I seriously don't know why it wasn't fixed. I'll check it out with the script writers as soon as possible, but it might be that the bot doesn't detect all mistakes. Yes, I can slow it down even more or maybe just put it on manual mode (just detect, not fix) :) --EivindJ (kontak) 12:29, 25 April 2008 (UTC)

Jaar, jareWysig

Hallo EivindJ,

The plural of "jaar" is "jare" (one 'a'). I guess we can improve things in the template from here onwords? Renaming the template should't break the old pages using the wrong spelling of the template name. Keep well --Alias (kontak) 13:30, 2 Junie 2008 (UTC)

Ah, of course. Taal – tale, jaar – jare :) The template is now moved. Thanks for telling so soon. Feedbacks and improvements on the sjabloon is very welcome! --EivindJ (kontak) 13:35, 2 Junie 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for year templateWysig

Hi! Thanks a lot for your work on the {{jare}}-template. I've seen at Norse Bokmål Wikipedia they also have different terms for different numbers, like everything is not always "1de eeu" etc. Everything ending with a number sometimes gets different endings, like: 0ste, 1ste 2de, 3de, 4de, 5de, 6de, 7de, 8ste, 9de, 10de, 11de, 12de, 13de, 14de, 15de, 16de, 17de, 18de, 19de, 20ste, 21ste, 22ste, ..., 30ste, 40ste, 50ste, 60ste, ..., 100ste, 1 000ste, 1 001ste, etc. If I am not mistaken somehow. But the problem is that in our template everything gets -de, which is very wrong and goes to the wrong links. I was wondering if you can maybe find a way to fix this? It will be really neat if you can, thanks! Adriaan90 (kontak) 09:49, 4 Junie 2008 (UTC)

Yes, I saw the problem, but I haven't got time to fix it yet. I'll try to fix it as soon as possible, but I'll have to figure out the afrikaans system properly first and then figure out how to do it templatewise. Feel free to do whatever you want if you know how to do it, since I may use some time :S (some exams this month). --EivindJ (kontak) 21:38, 4 Junie 2008 (UTC)
Hm, looks like I got/took time to fix it after all. I hope everything works fine now. --EivindJ (kontak) 09:04, 5 Junie 2008 (UTC)
Ek weet jy kan goed Afrikaans verstaan, dus gaan ek nie sukkel met Engels nie. Kan die 'jare templaat' nie ook die eeue-kategorie byvoeg nie? Bv, by die jaar 927 byvoeg Kategorie:10de eeu? Groete hansjoseph (kontak) 12:14, 8 Junie 2008 (UTC)
Ek het nie dit geprobeer nie, maar ek dink dit sal moontlik wees. Het jy meer spesifiek kategorieë in gedagte, soos Kategorie:927? Om dit kategoriestelsel te maak sal baie maklik wees. --EivindJ (kontak) 21:28, 8 Junie 2008 (UTC)
Hi EivindJ! Ek dink kategorie 927 ens. is onnodig. Groete hansjoseph (kontak) 07:07, 9 Junie 2008 (UTC)
Ok, so jy wil net de eeu-kategorieë hë. Dit is nie 'n probleem om te maak nie. --EivindJ (kontak) 09:30, 9 Junie 2008 (UTC)


Hallo EivindJ

A small request: before making lots of changes like you just did for the number of inhabbitants for towns, please have the text reviewed by somebody to avoid unnecessary rework. The proper grammar for you sentence should be: "Volgens die 2004-sensus het die munisipaliteit 104 inwoners." --Alias (kontak) 10:16, 9 Junie 2008 (UTC)

Wops, of course, sorry. --EivindJ (kontak) 10:30, 9 Junie 2008 (UTC)

Infoboks skrywerWysig

Hi EivindJ

Regarding your offer to do the Infoboks:Skrywer -- I thought that something like this would be good:

|naam = |onderskrif = |beeld = |beeldgrootte = 200px |onderskrif = |geboortedatum = Sjabloon:Geboortedatumsjabloon |geboorteplek = |nasionaliteit = |sterfdatum = Sjabloon:Sterfdatumsjabloon |beroep = |eggenoot = |kind(ers) = |beïnvloed deur = |toekennings = Sjabloon:Toekenningsjabloon

I would like it a lot if after that you could do an Infoboks: Anatomie next!

Thanks again Nomdeplume (kontak) 06:06, 23 Junie 2008 (UTC)

Thanks! I will start with this template when I return later this week. --Eivind (kontak) 10:37, 23 Junie 2008 (UTC)
Hello again! I've unfortunately been away for a while, but I will start with this infobox soon :) --Eivind (kontak) 13:53, 6 Augustus 2008 (UTC)


i am finding it alright to use but i sometimes use the old one becuase it is alot more flexible with extending it, but i mostly use it because of it's simplicity. If a certain city or town has no flag, coat of arms, or is missing something, this can be quite a problem with the infoboks. In my opinion , it's very useful , especialy for me , because i'm not fond with all the complicated ways of creating them. I think there are some things which might have to be fixed, like if nothing's entered it should stay blank, but overall... 7/10. i prefer it to the original , because i will only every use the older version when something about the city i can't find and i have to change it. I hope you understand. Thanks for your time! , by the way, if you need more 'advanced' opinions (since im only 14) , ask Voyageur. He is very proffecional and is better at creating city articles then me, he has also incountered problems with both versions and has used both. I hope this helps ^-^ Bezuidenhout (kontak) 20:35, 11 Augustus 2008 (UTC)

Thanks, Africa South! I'm going to rewrite the template soon, simplifying it a little. I will then see if I can make more fields optional. --Eivind (kontak) 22:50, 11 Augustus 2008 (UTC)

teruggerol na laaste weergaweWysig

Hi EivindJ. Kan 'n gewone gebruiker vandalisme deur 'n enkele gebruiker terugrol (bv. http://af.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Albert_Einstein&curid=5833&diff=402692&oldid=402691)of is 'n hoër status nodig? Byeboer (kontak) 00:40, 2 Desember 2008 (UTC)

Hi Byeboer! Nee, 'n gewone gebruiker kan nie vandalisme terugrol nie – net "maak ongedaan". Op af.wiki moet mense admin wees om terugrol te doen, of, soos my, 'n global rollbacker wees. Dit is 'n bietjie höer status as "gewone gebruiker", en jy kan dit kry as jy baie werk met fighting vandalisme op ander kleiner wikis. Sien Meta:SWMT. --Eivind (kontak) 12:52, 3 Desember 2008 (UTC)
Na die lees van 'n paar links blyk die beste oplossing popups of scripts te wees. Byeboer (kontak) 23:44, 3 Desember 2008 (UTC)
Ja, miskien ... jy kan dit probeer. Ek weet nie presies wat jy wens vir nie, so ek weet nie as ek kan jou meer hulp nie ... maar as jy vind werk wat jy dink ek kan doen, ek's baie bly om dit te doen – want ek kan nie artikels skryf met my slegte Afrikaans nie. --Eivind (kontak) 10:56, 4 Desember 2008 (UTC)

Velkommen tilbake Eivind!Wysig

Kjempebra at du er tilbake! :D --Voyageur (kontak) 13:45, 11 Januarie 2010 (UTC)

Takk for det (: Jobber meg sakte men sikkert tilbake til wiki-verdenen! Har du noe jeg kan hjelpe til med her? --Eivind (kontak) 09:53, 22 Januarie 2010 (UTC)
