The following deletions must be done:

See also my remarks on Wikisource:Scriptorium#Remaining mass deletions. -jkb- 08:17, 30 June 2010 (UTC)

November 2010[edit]

Fasile project[edit]

This appears to be a self-invented language. Note that en:Fasile language was deleted. -- Prince Kassad 20:08, 6 November 2010 (UTC)

Done, VIGNERON 10:24, 8 December 2010 (UTC)

Template:Konstytucja[edit]

moved to Polish Wikisource -- Prince Kassad 07:10, 10 November 2010 (UTC)

Shu jing[edit]

Table of contents for an English-language page that's already on en.wikisource as Classic of History. Jafeluv 09:41, 22 November 2010 (UTC)

Images from De Occulta Philosophia[edit]

De Occulta Philosophia was transferred to enwikisource five years ago, so there's no longer any use for the images. Jafeluv 11:17, 23 November 2010 (UTC)

Deleted. They are on Commons now. --Zyephyrus 15:13, 23 November 2010 (UTC)
Sorry, my mistake. There are 94 files but not the same ones. I will undelete them. --Zyephyrus 15:25, 23 November 2010 (UTC)
Done: they ought to be on Commons, don’t you think so? --Zyephyrus 15:32, 23 November 2010 (UTC)
Makes sense. I just assumed they had been transferred when the work was moved to en.ws. Jafeluv 15:49, 23 November 2010 (UTC)
I just noticed this entry, I'll try to take a look at these and clean them up as I'm working (very slowly) on this text on en.ws--Doug.(talk contribs) 06:41, 23 April 2012 (UTC)

September 2012[edit]

Deletion of Template:User xx (language)[edit]

I have just noticed that Wikisource still has the old language user templates Special:PrefixIndex/Template:User which have all been replaced by the global rollout of mw:Extension:Babel {{#babel:...}}. Can I suggest that we look to run a bot through, convert users to the new format, and then delete, otherwise deprecate, the templates. billinghurst sDrewth 11:43, 2 September 2012 (UTC)

+1, sure, support, -jkb- (talk) 12:00, 2 September 2012 (UTC)
+1 too, VIGNERON (talk) 06:41, 27 September 2012 (UTC)
Yes. –BruTe 09:58, 28 September 2012 (UTC)

Deletion of ਮਰਨ ਤੌ ਪਿਛੌਂ ਯਾਦ ਕਰੋਗੇ ਮੈਨੂੰ ਕੀ?[edit]

I have doubts of this being in public domain.--Guglani (talk) 17:02, 2 September 2012 (UTC)

Since you're the only editor of the page, I speedy-deleted it as "author request". —Angr 21:19, 5 September 2012 (UTC)

Von dem Fischer un syner Fru[edit]

de:Von dem Fischer un syner Fru (1857) is the same text, checked and documented. --Ikar.us (talk) 13:17, 15 September 2012 (UTC)

thx, done -jkb- (talk) 14:06, 15 September 2012 (UTC)
not sure what you did -jkb-. I'm deleting as the text exists on de.--Doug.(talk contribs) 23:56, 2 November 2012 (UTC)
Just saw the discussion at [[1]], checking with de.wikisource.--Doug.(talk contribs) 00:05, 3 November 2012 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done (again) This exists in identical form on de.wikisource. The fact that the editor doesn't think Plattdeutsch belongs on de.wikisource is irrelevant. de.wikisource is for all German works that are able to be hosted there until and unless a special subdomain is created (see m:Requests_for_new_languages/Wikisource_Low_Saxon). If a new subdomain is created then the work can be easily taken from de.wikisource.--Doug.(talk contribs) 00:54, 3 November 2012 (UTC)
If de.ws thinks, that they need to host the text, because it is part of a larger collection that is written in German in most parts, then I have no strong feelings against it. But that doesn't change the fact, that the text is Low Saxon and is therefore part of nds.ws.
There is no logical reason to delete it from the nds.ws project at all. Therefore I request the immediate reversal of the deletion. --::Slomox:: >< 14:55, 4 November 2012 (UTC)
It is very logical, Low German is German, it is accepted at de.ws and exists there. This project has a policy against allowing works that can be placed at a language subdomain. The distinction between dialects and minority languages is not a clear cut one but there is no reason for us to make an exception to the rule for a Low German when de.ws is willing to host it. If you eventually get your subdomain approved at meta you can copy all the relevant material from de.ws freely and fight with them over whether their rules require it to be deleted. In the meantime, it does not belong here.--Doug.(talk contribs) 18:48, 4 November 2012 (UTC)
This project has a policy against allowing works that can be placed at a language subdomain. If that was a valid argument it would mean that all content in Category:nds should be moved to de.ws, not just one single page.
'nds' is accepted as a language in its own right by the ISO 639 as well as the Wikimedia Foundation. There's a Wikipedia and a Wiktionary, and the Wikisource is considered eligible by the Wikimedia language committee. So it is already agreed upon that nds.ws will be created, just the time is not yet fixed.
The nds.ws test project is hosted here on oldwikisource and has collected more than 1000 pages of Low Saxon content. It's just ridiculous to delete a single page from this collection. --::Slomox:: >< 20:40, 6 November 2012 (UTC)
Having an ISO code does not a language make; lots of dialects, regional languages, etc. have ISO codes. Consider the information at wikipedia:Low_German#Legal_status. Additionally, the language is ineligible as a wikisource project. The project is required to remain continuously eligible, which among other things requires several active editors over several months. You have had only one active editor since 2009, you, and your last mainspace contribution was over a year ago. All your draft project has are bare texts without any scans. Scans are available, in fact the work we deleted had scans on de.ws. All you are doing is creating another ang.ws. Having a wikipedia and, even more so, a wiktionary, in this language/dialect, is very important. Having a separate wikisource is not. There's a strong argument for no subdomains at all for wikisources but to treat the languages like different wikiprojects or maybe namespaces within a single domain. We don't have these rules to deny subdomains to minority languages. They are to ensure that wikisources are viable and work isn't duplicated, etc. We can't have a bunch of works here that can also be at de.ws, we just don't allow it.--Doug.(talk contribs) 01:26, 7 November 2012 (UTC)
You are not argueing ad articulum but ad proiectum or ad linguam. Create a deletion request for the project if that is your argument. These are not arguments against this particular page. --::Slomox:: >< 13:09, 9 November 2012 (UTC)
A similar case: There are examples of texts in languages spoken in Italia different from Italian: they are hosted here and transcluded there (it could be in the opposite direction, or we could delete them here, or delete them there, I don't mind but mantain transclusion system for a once-proofreading is best); e.g. La profezia di Giona volgarizzata in dialetto sardo Logudorese is Sardinian and it's wrapped also at it:La profezia di Giona volgarizzata in dialetto sardo logudorese: they are identical texts. -Aleator 19:05, 9 November 2012 (UTC)
That's certainly a possibility that can be discussed, if the conditions are right. But here is not the place to discuss it. This is a deletion request and it's invalid because oldwikisource hosts a nds.ws test project and "Von dem Fischer un syner Fru" is a public domain text in Low Saxon and therefore is rightfully placed in the nds.ws test project. If Doug questions the validity of the nds.ws test project he should file a deletion request for the whole project and not for a single page (but I wouldn't advise him to try, because he is wrong. The project proposal is deemed "eligible" by the language committee on Meta and "remaining active" is not a requisite for eligibility, it's just a requisite for the step from "eligible" to "finally approved", see meta:Language proposal policy).
Short recap: This is a deletion request and it's invalid. So please undelete the page. --::Slomox:: >< 12:21, 10 November 2012 (UTC)

Albanian indices[edit]

Are these indices : Index:27884 sq.pdf and Index:OSCE KODI ETIK I MEDIAS SHQIPTARE 21139 sq.pdf really free ?

They come from the OSCE website wich state « The content of the Website … is owned or licensed by the OSCE, subject to copyright and other intellectual property rights under the law. Content may not be reproduced, copied, distributed, transmitted, broadcast, sold, licensed, or exploited in any way without the express prior written permission of the OSCE. » So the licence PD-UN on the files seems to be wrong.

Cdlt, VIGNERON (talk) 07:08, 27 September 2012 (UTC)

  • Yes check.svg Done These are obvious copyright violations. The user appears to think they have permission, I've deleted the indices and tagged the files at commons but given the user the OTRS instructions for permissions and will undelete when they get that.--Doug.(talk contribs) 03:48, 3 November 2012 (UTC)

November 2012[edit]

Pages created by User:Гүзәл Ситдиҡова[edit]

This user posts own poems at Wikisource (see [2], [3]). According to our rule we have to exclude original writings by a contributor to the project and, thus, delete her pages. –BruTe 11:02, 5 November 2012 (UTC)

Guzal Sitdykova is a well-known Bashkir poetess, there are articles about her on several Wikis. Some of these pages contain the poems that have never been published before, but some of these poems have already been published. --Comp1089 (talk) 12:11, 6 November 2012 (UTC)
Generally it has been the peer review process that has been the decider, and if it is published that has been the qualifier. What you do when a published writer chooses you to have their other works is a little trickier. If you think that they are worthy of keeping, you would want to confirm that the person is who they say they are, and the OTRS process for hosting the works would be necessary. If the poet is published, then I would look to have the community agree to host the works, no precedence set from the action. billinghurst sDrewth 13:35, 6 November 2012 (UTC)
Poetry is a hard case unless it's a very well known author. I mean, I've published a poem before, but my work isn't exactly worthy of wikisource. I think we have a sort of unwritten quasi-notability-of-work-or-author rule; which is very hard to apply with regard to minority languages, I suspect most of us wouldn't recognize the name of the current poet laureate of our own country, let alone any other current poet from some other country. On the other hand, this page Wikisource:What_Wikisource_includes authorizes moving the work to user space. Provided, as was mentioned on IRC, the works are actually owned by the author. Publication could have involved transfer of rights, in which case the author may not be in a position to grant CC-BY-SA or better rights.--Doug.(talk contribs) 23:25, 6 November 2012 (UTC)
As there is a new poem Һине уйлап... Гүзәл Ситдиҡова by the author today and as I didn't find any notice on publshing before and a licence, I propose ether to delete these poems or to move them to the user space. -jkb- (talk) 07:20, 29 July 2013 (UTC)

Education and Economic Development in India[edit]

It should probably be deleted without being transferred to English Wikisource. It may not be source text and its authorship is unknown.--Jusjih (talk) 12:53, 16 January 2013 (UTC)

Deleted. --Ooswesthoesbes (talk) 15:03, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

श्रीविष्णुसहस्रनामस्तोत्रम्‌[edit]

It should probably be deleted without being transferred to English Wikisource. It may not be source text and its authorship is unknown.--Jusjih (talk) 12:53, 16 January 2013 (UTC)

Yes, it was spam. Deleted as well. --Ooswesthoesbes (talk) 15:04, 30 January 2013 (UTC)

May 2013[edit]

Wikiprojects[edit]

I propose to delete the above two pages on the grounds that in fact, we don't have WikiProjects here. WP Rig Veda is the only existing WikiProject page, and it's pointless because the Sanskrit original is at sa:ऋग्वेदः and the English translation is at en:The Rig Veda. (There's also a French translation at fr:Rig Véda ou Livre des hymnes.) WikiProjects at Wikisource would be a nice idea, but in practice we mostly work individually on our own languages of interest, and what little collaboration there is can be organized on talk pages. —Angr 13:01, 18 May 2013 (UTC)

I agree. --Ooswesthoesbes (talk) 23:20, 9 July 2013 (UTC)
Where will we place the wikiproject if we delete it here? We can't delete such a project without finding another place for it. --Zyephyrus (talk) 04:25, 10 July 2013 (UTC)
It’s not a real project, it’s only two empty shell. I see no reason to keep this page (except for nostalgia maybe).
Nonetheless it could be useful some day to create a project namespace. Cdlt, VIGNERON (talk) 11:03, 24 September 2013 (UTC)
There is no WikiProject. There's no collaboration going on here, since the Rig Veda isn't being hosted here. If the people at sa: want to collaborate in a WikiProject, they can start their own over there. —Angr 12:17, 26 January 2014 (UTC)

File:The_Meaning_of_Relativity_-_Albert_Einstein_(1922).djvu[edit]

It's a duplicate that I accidentally uploaded to Wikisource instead of Wikimedia Commons. I reuploaded to Wikimedia Commons, so I'd like to get it deleted from Wikisource. Sorry for the trouble. Ozhu (talk) 02:43, 28 May 2013 (UTC)

  • Closed. You uploaded it to English Wikisource, not here to Multilingual Wikisource. And it's already been deleted at English Wikisource. —Angr 22:15, 14 June 2013 (UTC)

September 2013[edit]

Look at Category:Deletion requests and 109 Georgian empty pages at Special:ShortPages. -Aleator 00:06, 27 September 2013 (UTC)

Mingrelian, not Georgian. Some of them have been moved, some begin with asterisk (I think User_talk:Agi is migrating to the right pages). -Aleator 00:21, 27 September 2013 (UTC)

December 2013[edit]

I asked for deletion of Alex brollo/python, a banal mistake (I opened a ns0 page while it's proper location is intended to be a subpage of my user page). Thanks.--Alex brollo (talk) 13:12, 1 December 2013 (UTC)
