November 2012[edit]

Pages created by User:Гүзәл Ситдиҡова[edit]

This user posts own poems at Wikisource (see [1], [2]). 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)
This user continues adding new pages: Тән һәм йән. Гүзәл Ситдиҡова and Шиғыр түгел шиғыр. Гүзәл Ситдиҡова added today.
But regardless this poetry conforms our rules or not, we may have copyright problem. I see no response to @-jkb- request. Nor any OTRS ticket number provided. Nor any link to a page that confirms license/authorship. It seems to me that we still do not know whether User:Гүзәл Ситдиҡова is really Guzal Sitdykova, the author of this poetry. I suggest move the poetry to userspace (or even delete) until a clear confirmation is received. Ankry (talk) 10:28, 24 May 2015 (UTC)
The problem is: if it is a copyvio (and I think it can be definded as a copyvio), so it doesn't matter if it is in the article name space or in user name space or elsewhere. Copyvio stays copyvio everywhere and sould be deleted (when we later get a permission, so it can be restored antime). -jkb- (talk) 16:12, 24 May 2015 (UTC)
@-jkb-: Deletion requires admin rights. But as I can see no admin wanted to take a decision for over 2 years. So I do not believe such a decision to be taken soon. While moving the pages to userspace will probably not be ignored by the uploader and we may expect their action. Of course, if an admin wants to take the decission to delete the files temporarily, I will support this decision. But history of this section shows me that it is unlikely.

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)
Yes check.svg Done I'm redirecting to the existing pages without the asterisk. Best regards. -Aleator 21:45, 16 May 2015 (UTC)

January 2014[edit]

Not useful. Only contains Category:Poems. This, that and the other (talk) 07:02, 26 January 2014 (UTC)
I suggest keeping Poetry with many interwikis and delete Poems without interwiki.
Poems has been deleted, Poetry will remain.--Doug.(talk contribs) 14:43, 15 February 2015 (UTC)

March 2014[edit]

cleaning after import from guwikisource[edit]

Per [3], please delete all pages from Category:Gujarati.

If you need any bot assistance please let me known and I will apply for temporary sysop+bot user flags on a secondary user account on Meta. This also applies to the still pending Wikisource:Proposed_deletions#June_2010 Lugusto (talk) 16:11, 29 March 2014 (UTC)

December 2014[edit]

Teatro - Libero Bovio[edit]

The file Teatro - Libero Bovio.djvu can be deleted from wikisource, since it has been transfered to commons, here: Teatro - Libero Bovio in commons. Thanks!--C.R. (talk) 18:23, 7 December 2014 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done already--C.R. (talk) 17:38, 24 January 2015 (UTC)

January 2015[edit]

Teatro - Aniello Costagliola[edit]

The file Teatro - Aniello Costagliola.djvu can be deleted from wikisource, since it has been transfered to commons, here: Teatro - Aniello Costagliola.djvu in commons. Thanks!--C.R. (talk) 17:38, 24 January 2015 (UTC)

OK, -jkb- (talk) 18:14, 24 January 2015 (UTC)
Thanks!--C.R. (talk) 19:41, 24 January 2015 (UTC)

Life Insurance[edit]

Spam. Mathonius (talk) 06:24, 29 January 2015 (UTC)

February 2015[edit]

Multiple files moved to commons[edit]

Dear admins, I worked on the move of some files to commons, I hope you can end the process and delete them from here. The files are:

Since they keep the same name, I think it is sufficient to delete the file from here and the index will be automatically linked to commons.

Thanks a lot and sorry for the work. --C.R. (talk) 16:24, 8 February 2015 (UTC)

  • Mostly done. The last one was a mess. I deleted all three pages, the index, and the file, along with several redirects for the index. There is already a djvu file at Index:'O luciano d''o Rre.djvu that you have mostly proofread and transcluded to 'O luciano d''o Rre. It's the very same edition, so there is no reason to start transcluding the work again as a pdf (if anything, you'd simply move the pages without redirects if you wanted to do that - but there is no good reason to do it unless the djvu is bad). The djvu should be uploaded to commons and the renaming should be done with the djvu. Also, there was an extensive discussion page at File talk:'O "luciano" d''o Rre.pdf. I moved it to be the discussion page of the djvu as the djvu didn't have one.

Also, note that these talk pages still exist:

File talk:'O Munasterio.pdf
File talk:Ncoppo marciapiede - frusso.pdf

They can probably be deleted but it could go either way. There isn't much there.

Finally, aren't the transcluded pages now ready to be migrated to or do local rules prevent it?--Doug.(talk contribs) 05:24, 15 February 2015 (UTC)

C.R. explained on my talk page that these files are nap, not it.--Doug.(talk contribs) 14:39, 15 February 2015 (UTC)
See further discussion here. Djvu file uploaded to commons:File:’O luciano d’’o Rre.djvu but local file at File:'O luciano do Rre.djvu will remain until links to index and pages can be fixed.--Doug.(talk contribs) 15:40, 15 February 2015 (UTC)
Thanks. --C.R. (talk) 15:46, 15 February 2015 (UTC)

Wrong redirection category[edit]

Please delete this redirection category which I have created: Category:Иоанн-вельденьне Шкайстонь Ёнь-куля — files.
After I firstly created it, sooner I understood that it would be more correct to name the category without "— files" at the end of the name. I tried to rename it into Category:Иоанн-вельденьне Шкайстонь Ёнь-куля, so the redirection was created. By now, I have transfered yet all the pages into the new correct category. And that wrong category is now empty and is not needed any more. --Nigmont (talk) 19:12, 10 February 2015 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done--Doug.(talk contribs) 05:27, 15 February 2015 (UTC)

A djvu file moved to Commons[edit]

Please delete this file:

Firstly I uploaded it here; today I have uploaded it to the WikiCommons (it is actually in PD worldwide, so the Commons is more appropriate storage for it). I think, as well as in the cases of files of C.R. mentioned above, the pages referencing to the file also will be relinked to the Commons after this local copy will be deleted. --Nigmont (talk) 20:22, 17 February 2015 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done--Doug.(talk contribs) 04:36, 20 February 2015 (UTC)
Thanks! --Nigmont (talk) 21:09, 20 February 2015 (UTC)


Category:ウチナーグチ: empty category.--El caballero de los Leones (talk) 08:09, 26 February 2015 (UTC)

OK, done, -jkb- (talk) 23:52, 26 February 2015 (UTC)

March 2015[edit]

Page Deletion[edit]

Please delete this page:

The reason for this is because this is the multilingual wikisource and this page should belong to the English Wikisource. I have already completed creating the new page for this on the English Wikisource, but in order for the process of the switch to be complete, I need that page to be deleted because it is quite useless being there. Thanks! → Aphillipsmusique (talk) 21:32, 7 March 2015 (UTC)

Page has already been deleted by Zyephyrus. -jkb- (talk) 23:38, 7 March 2015 (UTC)

Page Deletion[edit]

Please delete this page: Category:Ma̿ing-bă̤-ngṳ̌ empty category, Main Page/Ma̿ing-bă̤-ngṳ̌: wrong name, now moved to Main Page/Mâing-bă̤-ngṳ̌.--El caballero de los Leones (talk) 03:55, 13 March 2015 (UTC)

Category deleted, but the redirect ist OK I guess (see what links and probably many links from outside of Oldwikisurce). -jkb- (talk) 12:20, 13 March 2015 (UTC)

Delete wrong category[edit]

Please delete this category: Category:Пици палакст. I created it first, but then I found that more proper name for this work should be "Пици-палакст" (this name is found everywhere in the book except the book-cover), and after that I created a new Category:Пици-палакст and moved all the items (indexes, pages and a file) from the prevous (which is put to deletion) to this category. --Nigmont (talk) 13:24, 29 March 2015 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done by -jkb-, thanks. --Nigmont (talk) 21:35, 14 April 2015 (UTC)

April 2015[edit]

Duplicated page[edit]

Please delete the page: Түрқмен, it is a duplication of the page Main Page/Түрқменчә. Its creator, User:Искуменко Виталий Николаевич erroneously created it, intending to create the main page for the Turkmen language category. I asked him (in Russian) on his talk page — he was not against the deletion of this page. --Nigmont (talk) 20:10, 3 April 2015 (UTC)

done, -jkb- (talk) 12:37, 4 April 2015 (UTC)

Авиакомпания ab[edit]

Meaningless page, and it seems to be a preparation for posting spam ("Авиакомпания ab" is translated from Russian as "Airline ab"). --Nigmont (talk) 16:48, 10 April 2015 (UTC)

thanks, done, -jkb- (talk) 08:36, 11 April 2015 (UTC)

Cancer Treatment Centers of America[edit]

Obvious spam. --Nigmont (talk) 13:31, 11 April 2015 (UTC)

away, thanks. -jkb- (talk) 14:00, 11 April 2015 (UTC)


A page written in the Russian language with content resembling spam but really filled with absurd and nonsense, it seems like somebody did an experiment with random text generator. The creator's IP is seemingly an open proxy. --Nigmont (talk) 16:46, 17 April 2015 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done by Zyephyrus, thanks! --Nigmont (talk) 20:33, 17 April 2015 (UTC)

May 2015[edit]


A nonsense page. --Nigmont (talk) 17:53, 10 May 2015 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done by -jkb-, thanks! --Nigmont (talk) 18:54, 10 May 2015 (UTC)


It seems to be a spam. --Nigmont (talk) 17:56, 10 May 2015 (UTC)

gone, -jkb- (talk) 18:34, 10 May 2015 (UTC)

Простомолотов Евгений Иванович[edit]

It looks like attempt of creation of author's page. The text (written in Russian) describes an author and musician of Kazakhstan, that person seems to be still alive (was born in 1952 and the death is not mentioned on the page), and his works (if they exist) are to be still copyrighted now. --Nigmont (talk) 18:07, 10 May 2015 (UTC)

deleted -jkb- (talk) 08:50, 11 May 2015 (UTC)

Прывет от думкі борис ласки[edit]

Written in Russian. I guess, looking on the stylistic, that the text is a romantic opus by some schoolboy or student. Most likely this is a self-published story, or (less likely) a copyvio. The author is not marked, the page creator is an anonymous user. --Nigmont (talk) 18:18, 10 May 2015 (UTC)

deleted -jkb- (talk) 08:50, 11 May 2015 (UTC)


I have created that page with a wrong naming structure. Please delete. Thank you in advance. --Xabier Armendaritz (talk) 14:55, 11 May 2015 (UTC)


Once again, I have created a page without the proper naming structure, sorry! --Xabier Armendaritz (talk) 15:38, 11 May 2015 (UTC)
