Works of Gjergj Fishta[edit]

Hello jkb! Do you have any concerns about this? Thanks! –BruTe 11:04, 13 June 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I'll see in my notices and will let you know, regards, -jkb- (talk) 08:23, 14 June 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

As far as I have found there were the following pages by Fishta:

Because of the (formerly) copyvio I moved them to Wikilivres 2009 and deleted here, but now they can be restored anyway. Might be you should restore them by yourself so that you can see if everything is OK (templates etc.). Regards -jkb- (talk) 10:12, 14 June 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi Guglani. If I understand it well you want to make a link in the Punjabi Wikipedia that would link to here, to the Oldwikisource - want you? In this case the syntax (in the Punjabi WP) is simply like

Was hat die Löschung von Von dem Fischer un syner Fru mit Verweis auf de:Von dem Fischer un syner Fru (1857) zu bedeuten? Es handelt sich um einen plattdeutschen Text, der ganz offensichtlich zum plattdeutschen Wikiborn gehört. --::Slomox:: >< 20:42, 30 September 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi Slomox. I've just found there the notice

the deletion request came from -jkb- (talk) 22:23, 30 September 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Die Löschbegründung habe ich gesehen, aber die Sprache des Textes ist Plattdeutsch und der Text ist daher logischer und legitimer Bestandteil des plattdeutschen Wikiborn. Wenn de.wp den Text ebenfalls hosten will, weil er Bestandteil einer Sammlung ist, die zum größeren Teil aus hochdeutschen Texten besteht, dann kann ich dagegen nichts einwenden. Aber die Löschung hier war falsch, daher würde ich dich bitten, den Text wiederherzustellen. --::Slomox:: >< 19:05, 1 October 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hiding spams[edit]

Hello -jkb-, the solution I have used may be not as useful as I'd liked it to be, but I've not found a better one. The idea was to hide summary and content when they show the information about the spam, (because their visibility in the deletion summary is spamming once more!) but I've not found any satisfactory solution. What could we do? --Zyephyrus (talk) 16:11, 4 October 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Oh, you mean this. Well, if you want to hide something, e.g. like [240904=1 here], you can choos from three oprions: you can hide Revision text, Edit summary and/or Editor's username/IP address. Hidding a revision of an existing page, you use any one or all of them. In the case of a deleted page it is not necessary to do anything, as the "normal user" doesn't see any of these inputs, see e.g. the deleted User:Steinsplitter/common.css; only an admin can find there the option "View or restore one deleted edit?" (on the top left), where you can read the comment and the user/ip, but this is not possible for a user who is not an admin. So, the hidding doesn't change anything. Just log out and try with any deleted page. AFAIK. Regards -jkb- (talk) 06:47, 6 October 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello. Why erase my own works. I sent a request to the copyright. Waiting for an answer.--Кинйә 17:55, 17 April 2016 (UTC)

A question about copyright policy[edit]

Hello, seeing you are an admin I take the liberty of bothering you : ))

Can I import a dictionary published in 1960 that does not say anything about license it was published with? If not, who do I need to ask the permission? publisher or editors? or all the authors outright? (chief editor is deceased BTW). If I get the permission does it need to be on paper (in case they change their mind)?. In case I get the permission from them, do I need to ask the ones who actually made a digital version of the work?

Thanks you. --Dixtosa (talk) 16:38, 4 June 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Dixtosa: I answer to you as you asked for this on my talkpage:
Can I import a dictionary published in 1960 that does not say anything about license it was published with? — You could import that dictionary provided: 1) it is in the PD (Public Domain) in the country where it was published first and (or at least) in the US as well; 2) or it is not in PD yet, but you can get permission from the copyright holder of that work to use the work under CC-BY-SA 3.0 license.
Regarding getting into PD: in general, it depends on: what is the country (state) where the work (that dictionary as for current case) was published first (take in account that any edition could potentially be not the first publication — but only the first publication does matter in the copyright issues), which are the copyright laws of that country, and for most countries the death year of the author is important because copyright terms are calculated based on that year. Absence of license notice does not matter, with rare exceptions (as for US works published before 1989). Also URAA issues can come in place. Maybe I would say to you more precisely whether this work in PD if you tell me what is the coutry and what is the year of the author's death.
If not, who do I need to ask the permission? publisher or editors? or all the authors outright? (chief editor is deceased BTW). — You must get permission from the copyright holder(s). They may be various and different from case to case: e. g. author him/herself (if he/she is still alive), his/her heirs (descendants), the publisher(s), editor(s) and etc. You must investigate and get information who is (are) the copyright holder(s).
If you get such information then you may try to communicate to those holders anyhow, in order they release the work under CC-BY-SA 3.0 license. If they are agree then they (not you!) must register their permission on the Wikimedia's OTRS, as e. g. described here in the en-WP: w:Wikipedia:Declaration of consent for all enquiries:
If you failed to obtain such information and there is no any evidences that the work is in PD — then, unfortunately, you may not publish the work at any of the Wikimedia Foundation sites (including Wikisource), according to Wikimedia policies.
Also you may addtionally read rules: here in the multi-WS: Wikisource:Copyright policy, and on the en-WS: en:Wikisource:Copyright policy, en:Help:Public domain; also on en-Wikipedia (those rules can be applied to the WS as well): w:Wikipedia:Declaration of consent for all enquiries, w:Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials, w:Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission. --Nigmont (talk) 18:25, 11 June 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Nigmont:, Thank you for such a comprehensive answer! It is clear now, except for the digitalization part. Do I need any kind of permission from them?--Dixtosa (talk) 17:08, 12 June 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Dixtosa: sorry but I do not understand this your question... What do you mean on: permission on digitalization? Do you mean: have you to get one supplementary permission from the copyright holder to perform digitalization, — a permission additional, extra to the permission of to use the work on CC-BY-SA 3.0 terms? If you really meant so then the answer is: no, you needn't such separate permission as I think, CC-BY-SA permission is well enough. Or what did you mean? --Nigmont (talk) 17:22, 12 June 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Nigmont: No, imagine that someone else (not me, not copyright holder) has digitalized the intellectual property and published it through a website, so you can view parts of the work but you can't download the whole work at once. This is loosely like where you can view some pages but not download the book. So if I download all the data via web scraping, is that illegal?--Dixtosa (talk) 17:31, 12 June 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Dixtosa: as far as I know: yes, it's illegal — provided the work is not in PD and you have not permission from the copyright holder to do so. And to upload such scans extracted by this way onto any of Wikimedia sites is considered as copyright infringement and strictly prohibited by Wikimedia policies, and you can get blocked for doing so (and even to get blocked indefinitely for repeated attempts). So anyway you need either clear proof that the work is in PD, or a permission from copyright holders registered in the OTRS system (as described on some pages which links I provided in the previous my comments above). --Nigmont (talk) 18:02, 12 June 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
No, no, no I meant if I HAVE the permission but not the digital version FROM the copyright holders.
The reason I thought it was illegal was that digitalization is still a work... and not easy to be honest.
//edit conflict// Hi. Well, the question of a simple digitalisation is not quite that important as such digitalisation doesn't produce any copyright (in a normal case). But as Nigmont wrote above it will be very hard to get a permission for a dictionary with some more dozens of authors -the copyright holders. And: if there is a website publishing a work but not giving an information o the copyright - so it doesn't meen at all that the work is free. Many websites publish works but don't care of the copyright. Thanks to Nigmont for answering here... -jkb- (talk) 18:07, 12 June 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
So I guess I can do web scraping if I have the permission from the holders. Thanks! --Dixtosa (talk) 18:11, 12 June 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Dixtosa: Yes, of course — if you have the permission (to use on CC-BY-SA terms) from the copyright holders then you are completely free to do such scraping without any restrictions, and it is perfectly allowed to upload such scans on Wikimedia Commons and other Wikimedia sites (if they are appropriate for this). --Nigmont (talk) 18:32, 12 June 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
add: the permission must be given by all copyright holders; and, the permission should be sent to OTRS. Regards, -jkb- (talk) 20:07, 12 June 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Wrong comment of edit[edit]

Hello, -jkb-!

I made an error in the comment to this edit — I'm sorry... I wrote wrong destination where the topics where archived: I marked Wikisource:Scriptorium/Archives/Jan 2014 - Dec 2014 but really Wikisource:Scriptorium/Archives/Jan 2015 - Dec 2015 is needed. Can you, as an admin, fix the desc. or the edit (if it is available by engine — I don't know); or at least to remove / hide the comment?

Import to Page namespace works nice if you choose destination namespace manually. Namespace automatic identification does not seem to work for non-standard namespaces (Page/Author/...).

BTW, I merged two versions of page 115, hopefully identified all typos. I also hope, I guess Czech PD date for this work properly; definitely it was not 1923 :)

Hi @Ankry: thank you a lot. "1923" was my error edit by some c&p mishap that occured in the same minute in the cssource as well...
The destination of the namespace: yep I was quite surprised after I have seen the result, in the past I did some interwiki imports and I thought to remember that the proper namespace will be chosen automatically - I wanted to correct it later.

Do you remember why this article was moved to Wikilivres? As 1907 publication it seems to be PD-US and suitable for Ankry (talk) 09:15, 30 July 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi @Ankry: it's a long time ago, and after the policy of wikilivres/bibliowiki changed, I had no contacts with the project, more over I had since two or three years problems to log in. Nevertheless: I could se in the logs over there, that the article has been importet twice:

  • 10:11, 3 July 2014‎ imported>Eclecticology‎ . . (7,173 bytes) (-1)‎
  • 20:44, 28 June 2010‎ imported>Titus‎ . . (7,174 bytes) (+7,174)‎ . . (New)

and I seem to be the one who posted the template here only ([1]). Might be it would help to ask @Zyephyrus, Electron: as the still seem to work on Wikilivres/Bibliowik so that they can have a look into the logs, discussion etc. So long, -jkb- (talk) 12:54, 30 July 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I just wonder if there was a reason to delete this text (and likely other texts from Category:Moved to Wikilivres) here. May it be restored as PD-US-1923-abroad? Your opinion? Did copyright rules in Multilingual Wikisource change since that time? Ankry (talk) 13:04, 30 July 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
First, I'm not quite sure, the general copyright rules changed a bit in general (if there is any impact on pd-us-1923-abroad - ??, somebody else should help here), but there was a change in wikilivres/bibliowiki as the server moved from Canada to South Corea and the to New Zealand AFAIK, but this is a point Zyephyrus could answer. However, if today the copyright rules here would allow to host the text here, we could remove them back. Anyway, the text has been moved 2010 and today we have 2019. -jkb- (talk) 13:44, 30 July 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Ankry: Ponieważ tu wszyscy sami swoi to nie będę się produkował in English... Prawdę powiedziawszy nie mam pojęcia, czemu to zostało przeniesione do wikilivres. Skopiował to jak widzimy z historii strony User:Titus, ale obecnie nie jest on u nas zarejestrowany. Po serii kilku przenosin na nowe serwery serwis stracił stare logi, więc trudno tu cokolwiek powiedzieć. Tekst był opublikowany w 1907 więc był i jest PD-US, chyba, że tylko powstał w tym roku a nie był nigdzie publikowany, ale w to wątpię... Po za tym o ile sobie przypominam mul też nie od razu stał się składem prac PD-US; ścierały się różne koncepcje. Zresztą np. zdaje się np. Francuzi takie prace trzymają u siebie na swoich wikiźródłach i też jest cacy. Nie wiem jak tam to było z Niemcami. Być może inaczej... Zresztą nie znam niemieckiego. Być może coś się zachowało w starych dyskusjach na mul, ale trzeba by było się do nich dogrzebać... Electron  <Talk?> 14:58, 30 July 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I was a bit afraid if that was a DMCA-like office action: but, I suppose, you would remember if this was the case. I will restore the pages with clear bibliographic references (and pre-1924).
@Electron: Is there any policy in Wikilivres concerning works that are moved back? Avoiding duplicates? No? Co do francuskich tekstów, część niedawno przenosiłem tutaj, więc różnie to bywa. A parę usuniętych z jako "office action" mam do wyjaśnienia w TODO (i ewentualnego przeniesienia). Ankry (talk) 15:24, 30 July 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I guess the removing is OK. -jkb- (talk) 15:28, 30 July 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
No, wikilivres policy about duplicated texts was changed about a year ago. We keep them now, nevertheles they are somewhere else were restored. It is not a big project so far, so every text is valuable. The more texts we are the more potencial readers we can have...
@Ankry: Co do Francuzów - to oni mają trochę pomieszane z poplątanym, np. na swojej wikipedii trzymają pliki, które łamią ich prawa autorskie, które nie uznają wolności panoramy... Oczywiście wg praw US są one OK. Są bardziej praktyczni, od nas, że tak powiem. Tam gdzie znajdą jakąś lukę prawną tam wchodzą bez szczypania. Ale być może postanowili na wikiźródłach część prac rozdzielić. W sumie co to komu szkodzi. Wystarczy dać linka... Electron  <Talk?> 15:45, 30 July 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@DerHexer, Hoo man, Schniggendiller: zwei Fragen an euch.

  1. ganz zufällig bemerkte ich vor zehn Tagen (davor keine Ahnung) die Erstellung von User-Konten nach dem Muster "etwas+Mensusa", derzeit etwa 13 Accounts. Soweit ich sehe alle mit Null Edits, somit derzeit kein Vandalismus oder desgleichen, dennoch merkwürdig. Schon mal anderswo gesehen? Fällt euch dazu etwas ein? Siehe User:-jkb-/check
  2. Etwas problematischer ist der Vandalismus auf japanischen Seiten, Siehe ebenfall dort (die sollte es hier en sich nicht geben). Seit etwa März 2021, davor keine Ahnung, nicht aufgefallen. So um die mittlerweile ein paar Hundert oder fast do. Die Seiten werden mit Unsinn erstellt (soweit ich die Übersetzungen mitbekam, geht es um etws wie Konzerte auf Youtube und ähnlichen Quark). Alle IPs gehören der NTT in diversen Städten. Ich löschte bislang manuell. Ich könnte das natürlich mit einer Range-Sperre klären, die allerdings sehr groß sein könnte. Das wäre insofern kein Problem, als wir hier nicht die japanische WP oder WS sind und die IPs haben hier nichts zu suchen, dennoch eine Frage, ob es eine andere technische Lösung geben könnte oder eine Lösung über meta (na ja, ein Blok / Lock würde dann aber Konsequenzen für die jap. WP/WS... haben. Ideen?

Die Japaner habe ich im Moment noch manuel so unter Kontrolle; morgen überlege ich ein Rangeblock, wobei ich mir die IPs noch anschaue und versuche, dann vielleicht zwei/drei kleinere Ranges abzudichten. Zu Mensusa habe ich keine Idee, keine Ahnung, was der Zweck des Quarks sein könnte, zumal hier auf Sourceswiki, das für Sockenexperimente an sich voll uninteressant ist. Na gut, thx für deine Reaktion. -jkb- (talk) 22:02, 18 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Let's try: First range block Mai 19th in the evening 2400:4052:2c80:4600:3081:80f8:3a32:889/64 ( three months, see -jkb- (talk) 20:23, 19 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@DerHexer: heute zwei three weitere Mensusa-Accounts; ich machte mir Mühe und bei etwa sechs von ihnen mir die SUL-Konten angeschaut, Sie scheinen sich nur hier angemeldet zu haben (cf. bspw. hier), Grüße -jkb- (talk) 20:07, 20 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

1. Mensusa sagt mir nix; ist mir bisher nicht aufgefallen.
2. Neben einem Block wäre noch ein Filter möglich gewesen. Aber eine 64er-Range ist ja auch eng genug zum Sperren …

Richtig, ich probiere es erst mal so - Filter zu erstellen ist nicht meine Stärke :-) -jkb- (talk) 21:00, 20 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@ Lustiger seth: hier oben seht einiges, ansonsten auf User:-jkb-/check.

  • Im wesentlichen ginge es mir um einen Filter, mit dem ich verhindere, dass Account mit dem Wort "Mensusa" als Teil des Benutzernamens angelegt werden (~Mensusa hat immer etwas davor). Bislang knapp 20 Accounts. Ich kann sie über Meta per CU überprüfen lassen, ich vermute beinashe eine Person dahinter, aber das verhindert nicht weeiterre Registrierungen. Ich versuchte auf de mir die dortigen Filter anzuschauen, doch Filter, die zutreffen würden, sind alle privat also nicht lesbar, und ich bin diesbezüglich wohl eine Niete :-)... MMn müsste es relativ einfach sein. Kannst du mir Ratschläge geben?
  • ebenfalls könnte ein Filter für den zweiten Fall helfen, die japanischen IPs (ebenfalls dort anzusehen). Ich habe mir derzeit mit einem Rangeblock ausgeholfen, doch ob's hält will ich nicht einschätzen, einige Vandalen sind erfinderisch.Steht jedoch in der dringlichkeit auf Platz 2 auf der Liste.

Dank im Voraus, Grüße und einen schönen Pfingstrest, wünscht -jkb- (talk) 15:25, 23 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

gudn tach!
1. accountname rlike '^[A-Z][a-z]+Mensusa$' sollte zumindest das manuelle anlegen solcher namen verhindern. kombiniert werden kann es mit (action == 'createaccount' | action == 'autocreateaccount'). ob das mit dem autocreateaccount funzt, weiss ich nicht. hab es aber in [2] gesehen.
2. die meisten angelegten nonsense-seiten scheinen geloescht worden zu sein. da ich hier kein admin bin, kann ich die nicht einsehen. eine, die aktuell noch nicht geloescht ist, ist die user talk page von 2400:4052:2C80:4600:1832:A83A:F67D:62D2. um zu verhindern, dass seiten mit solchen zeichen abgespeichert werden koennen, koenntest du sowas nutzen wie added_lines rlike '[ーくべらる]' oder added_lines rlike '[\x{3040}-\x{30ff}]' evtl. in kombination mit user_age < 3600 oder page_namespace==3

als ergaenzung:
wie immer gilt beim edit filter: erstmal auf logging-only stellen, und fuer ein paar tage beobachten. es kann ja auch nachteile haben, wenn man komplette zeichensaetze (hier: hiragana und katakana) unterbindet.
ausserdem scheinen gerade japanische wochen zu sein, vgl. w:de:WP:AAF#Meine_Disk -- seth (talk) 10:22, 24 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@ Lustiger seth: also mein unbeholfener Versuch ist der Filter Nr 14 unter, noch nicht aktiviert, ja zuerst nur loggen ist mir klar, nur wo finde ich da... Kannst du es dir anschauen und evtl. Korrekturen vorschagen? Grüß -jkb- (talk) 15:26, 24 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

schaut gut aus. mitgeloggt wird, wenn die regel aktiviert wird, aber keine massnahmen eingestellt werden. -- seth (talk) 15:35, 24 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Here , I was trying to add the poem (हिमाल) to the page, but while editing ,all the contents were invisible.And ,after I finished editing , all the contents reappeared and my edit was on the top of all.I couldn't fix that. But my intentions were not to experiment ,rather I tried to contribute . Help me ,yeah,I am a newcomer .Thank you! Kushal Dev Wiki (talk) 01:08, 10 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Greetings, Can you give me an import permit so that I can import texts in Hebrew? Thank you! Neriah (talk) 20:00, 18 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi Neriah, something what is called "import rights" can be granted by stewards only. But as every administrator (or bureaucrat) can import pages from another WMF project, you can do following:
  • either you apply for it on Wikisource:Administrators#Requests for adminship as I wouldn't like to decide it alone by myself (I cannot say how the other admins will judge it),
  • or you you apply the import on Wikisource:Scriptorium (just like "Import from he") giving us a list of the pages that are to be imported; but you should give us the reason for the import, the pages must have a proper license, author, year of publishing etc.
If there are some problems pls let me know. Regards -jkb- (talk) 20:51, 18 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Mensusa 2[edit]

@DerHexer, Hoo man, Schniggendiller: siehe zuerst oben unter #ping ping :-). In Mai habe ich den Filter 14 eingerichtet, nur auf "log" eingestellt, danach passierte lange nichts, bis ab ca. Mitte August die ersten Meldungen kamen, bis heute schon einige Dutzend, Tendenz eher steigend, siehe abuse log 14. Was das sein soll kapiere ich bis heute nicht. So wie ich gesehen habe sind die meisten Accounts dieser Art nur hier auf sourceswiki vorhanden. Obwohl ich CU-Erfahrungen habe, habe ich es bislang versäumt, dies hier anzusprechen und einen CU wählen zu lassen, werde ich wohl nachträglich machen, aber das braucht hier seine Zeit. Im Moment denke ich jedoch, dass eine CD-Überprüfung nötig wäre, um den Hintergrund zu verstehen. So wäre es interessant zu wissen, ob es sich um eine IP bzw. und eine IP-Range handelt, und dann, wo die herkommt. Die Daten der meisten Accounts müssten noch vorhanden sein. Kann das jemand von euch machen? Danke!

P.S. @ Der Hexer: wie du auf meiner dewiki-DS lesen kannst, war ich zuletzt eher offline, daher habe ich über deine Rückgabe der Rechte dort erst heute erfahren. Auch von mir: vielen Dank für deine Arbeit dort! Grüße, -jkb- (talk) 19:04, 15 October 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hallo @DerHexer, Hoo man, Schniggendiller: kommt da noch etwas? Eine unkonventionelle Hilfe oder ein Ratschlag wären genehm... Gruß -jkb- (talk) 20:22, 19 October 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

How we will see unregistered users[edit]


You get this message because you are an admin on a Wikimedia wiki.

When someone edits a Wikimedia wiki without being logged in today, we show their IP address. As you may already know, we will not be able to do this in the future. This is a decision by the Wikimedia Foundation Legal department, because norms and regulations for privacy online have changed.

Instead of the IP we will show a masked identity. You as an admin will still be able to access the IP. There will also be a new user right for those who need to see the full IPs of unregistered users to fight vandalism, harassment and spam without being admins. Patrollers will also see part of the IP even without this user right. We are also working on better tools to help.

If you have not seen it before, you can read more on Meta. If you want to make sure you don’t miss technical changes on the Wikimedia wikis, you can subscribe to the weekly technical newsletter.

We have two suggested ways this identity could work. We would appreciate your feedback on which way you think would work best for you and your wiki, now and in the future. You can let us know on the talk page. You can write in your language. The suggestions were posted in October and we will decide after 17 January.

Thank you. /Johan (WMF)

Hello. I noticed you are the most active administrator here by going to Special:Log and checking for deletions, blocks, protections, etc. Since Wikisource:Scriptorium seems relatively dead, I'll ask you directly. Could you please help me to get around the "Antispam" edit filter and implement my very last attempted edit to Eliot Indian Bible (1663)? I assure you that there's nothing spammy about it. Thank you in advance for your assistance. 08:52, 24 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

User:Koavf: see Special:AbuseLog/51933. 22:45, 27 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Filter is disabled. Please make the edit, ping me, and I will re-enable. If need be, I can edit the filter. —Justin (koavf)TCM 22:50, 27 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Koavf: Done, thanks! And sorry -jkb- for the pings. 22:53, 27 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I don't see what the problem was, but it's likely something that will only be relevant for this page. Again, post on my talk if this gives you future problems. —Justin (koavf)TCM 22:54, 27 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Albanian language[edit]

Hello, jkb!
I'm an admin of the Albanian Wikipedia and recently I was updating our main page. While putting the Wikipedia sister projects as a footer I discovered that the link to Wikisource had problems. Apparently our project in here is largely unmaintained and exists in this link: Main Page/Shqip.
Is this normal practice? Shouldn't it be on a subdomain on its own or be sent to the Incubator? I hope you can help me remove the confusion a bit. — Klein Muçi (talk) 14:59, 25 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Hi, -jkb-, I put my request for the bot flag for DracoBot three weeks ago. I do not mind waiting a few days more, however I do not have the impression that anybody has noticed it. Could you discuss the issue with other 'crats? If you have any questions please contact me. Draco flavus (talk) 21:50, 5 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi Draco flavus, I will try to do something in the next days, OK? Regards. -jkb- (talk) 21:53, 5 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Sounds good to me. Unfortunately, as an admin and not bureaucrat, I cannot do it myself (but you can, as you are one of three bureaucrats here... Thanks for asking.). —Justin (koavf)TCM 15:54, 7 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
sure, but I just would like to know your opinion here :-) -jkb- (talk) 17:04, 7 June 2023 (UTC) Reply[reply]
