Market Squares[edit]

So I recently noticed that "Town Squares" might be the more correct term for the swedish "Torg". What do you guys think here on the English Wiki? Does "market squares" work or should we start changing it to "town squares"?

Market Squares

Good job on the wiki!
I think "Town Squares" seems more appropriate. Gor (talk) 10:52, 6 March 2022 (UTC)


Nice work with updating the templates... I have been waiting for this "Major Overhaul" :) Ojarnstr (talk) 18:44, 22 September 2020 (UTC)

Thanks! Yes, it was not possible to see what was written in the fact boxes. Now they are the same as on the Swedish side. I have made templates for country and municipality as well, it was missing before.
Now you can copy the text from the Swedish fact box and paste it on the English page and translate the keywords (namn -> name, bild -> image and so on) on the left. You can find all the keywords in the templates here.
I took the liberty of replacing Terrain with Surface. I'm currently trying to do a mass edit of the zone articles that have already been written. One problem is that on terrain it says where the zone is located on some of them. But it will work out in the end.
You can start typing "Location" as on the Swedish page if you want, eg
[[Municipality:Västerås|Västerås]], [[Region:Västmanland|Västmanland]], [[Country:Sweden|Sweden]]
i will transfer everything to the same setup we run there.
Keep up the good work! Gor (talk) 20:02, 22 September 2020 (UTC)


Can you do anything about this with your new wiki powers Trash bin? Ojarnstr (talk) 07:05, 25 September 2020 (UTC)

Will do :). The priority now is to change the naming of the municipalities in Finland and fix the links to them. Should also try to fix the content in the fact boxes to them.
There is now also a template for the fact box for Town. Similar to the one on the Swedish page for Ort.
You who are good at translating. If you feel you want a little challenge, you can translate sv:Wikiguiden and enter it here. Gor (talk) 07:58, 25 September 2020 (UTC)
Sure I will take a look. Ojarnstr (talk) 12:06, 25 September 2020 (UTC)
Got a little wrong earlier, the template for the fact box is called City not Town. Gor (talk) 15:18, 25 September 2020 (UTC)
Can you find the link for this on the english side Mall needed for template section for wikiguide?Ojarnstr (talk) 14:12, 26 September 2020 (UTC)

Finished but the swedish text was "krångling" at times so I hope understood everything correctly myself. I left "version history" and "extensions" for you. If you want to tell what you have been doing this week and have some future plans etc. You certainly have been busy :). Ojarnstr (talk) 12:45, 28 September 2020 (UTC)
There is of course one small cosmetic thing the "faktaruta" pictures could be changed to english if anyone is good with picture editing. Ojarnstr (talk) 12:50, 28 September 2020 (UTC)

Very well done with the Wiki guide. I'll check if the "faktaruta" is something I can fix.

  • I have added prefixes to the articles that should have the prefix country, region and municipality and changed all links and created categories for those who lacked it.
  • Added the new templates to the fact boxes on all existing country, region and zone articles (may have missed a single zone article).
  • Cleaned up a bit among the categories. Merged some, created some new ones and removed some. Now most should be in the plural. I have made most of the attribute zone categories so that there is a capital letter on Zone e.g.
    [[Category: Winner Zones]]
    You will find all the categories Special:Categories here.
  • In the texts I have fixed so you do not have to write e.g.
    [[Holy zones|holy zone]]
    but it is now possible to write only
    [[holy zone]] or [[Holy zone]]
    and you will be linked to the right place. If you find something more that needs fixing like that, let me know. Has also replaced all the old links so that it becomes easier to read in the wiki text.
  • If I have not succeeded everywhere or if something does not work, please let me know so I can fix it.
  • Has started deleting the spam articles but it was not possible to delete several at once but must be done manually one by one. The IP address they are created from is the Wikimedia server. So someone hacked in there and spread a lot of spam.

No more direct plans for the English side right now. I think the look and functionality of it is good now. What do you think?

If you need help with something, just say so.

Have some more projects for you but I will write them on your page. Gor (talk) 15:06, 28 September 2020 (UTC)

Good work with cleaning up the categories... I have not been consistent with them. I will slowly start updating articles with fact boxes. The template upgrade you made actually already makes the articles look great... there was something with colors that did not work.
Yes look and functionality is great now... and having the same structure as on swedish side. I can just copy-paste and do a quick translation. This is something that should have been done a long time ago :). Hopefully some new wiki editors will find they way here. Ojarnstr (talk) 16:39, 28 September 2020 (UTC)
Thanks! The error in the colors was in the template of the templates. :)
How good that it works with copy-paste, that was the idea when I remade them.
I've talked to a Scottish guy, he and his turf buddies will start creating at least some zone pages. Gor (talk) 16:57, 28 September 2020 (UTC)


I have cheated a bit when doing the round toplists just copy-pasting from the swedish wiki... can you use your special magic admin powers to replace: "Användare" with "User"? Ojarnstr (talk) 15:48, 4 October 2020 (UTC)

I've already done it on the whole English page, I thought :) Is it missed somewhere? Gor (talk) 15:57, 4 October 2020 (UTC)
::ahh okay did not notice good work :) Ojarnstr (talk) 16:02, 4 October 2020 (UTC)
Do you know that you can use "search and replace" after pasting? Gor (talk) 16:07, 4 October 2020 (UTC)
Yes I do but had done so many before I thought of it... and then I just decided to let it be there are so few user profiles here on the english side. Though my efforts were better served elsewhere than going back and correcting it :) Ojarnstr (talk) 16:28, 4 October 2020 (UTC)
You did the right thing. You do much better with what you do! :) Gor (talk) 16:56, 4 October 2020 (UTC)


I made duplicate page... forgot that I had made one already. Can you either delete "Beach" or move "Beach" to "Beaches"?Ojarnstr (talk) 15:55, 16 October 2020 (UTC)

Fixed. Gor (talk) 20:24, 16 October 2020 (UTC)
