- Hi, I'm moving labels from "no" to "nb" since "no" should really not be used as a language code. It's a meta language code for two different languages; "nb" and "nn", and it's not possible to choose "no" in the Universal Language Selector. The "no" labels were imported by bot from nowiki, whose language code is "nb", but which was not configured correctly at that time. If we keep both "no" and "nb" labels, they will start to differ over time since noone will update the "no" labels, and we will end up with a mess. See my bot proposal for more info.

- I see! Thought there must be an explanation :) thanks for the info. Good luck! Jared Preston (talk) 09:02, 1 October 2013 (UTC)
- I've done the same for Andrea Petkovic (Q57557) now, deleting the no label and adding label/description for nb. Is that OK? Jared Preston (talk) 09:10, 1 October 2013 (UTC)
- No problems :) But there's really no need to do it manually as my bot will eventually go over all the pages. It might take some time though, I have estimated about 40 days :) Danmichaelo (talk) 14:31, 1 October 2013 (UTC)
You'll want to correct the nn label of moss (Q25347) by hand. It had the Latin name before, which the bot de-capitalized. English is "moss", German is "Laubmoose". --EncycloPetey (talk) 05:43, 17 June 2016 (UTC)
