Re: Middle Limburgish[edit]

Haj Angr,

You said "Middle Limburgish", but I want to make something clear :) And after some research I discovered that I was wrong and only Zeeuws and Dutch really derive from Middle Dutch. (I've also changed my oppose).

Middle Dutch spoken in Limburg is not the same as Middle Limburgish. Middle Limburgish was spoken from at least 1650 until about 1900, see two categories Middle Limburgish and Late Middle Limburgish/Early Modern Limburgish, and it derived from Old Limburgish.

Middle Dutch is much older (1100-1500?). Limburgish Middle Dutch can be found here and is not the language of which most Limburgish dialects derive, except from some Belgian Limburgish dialects maybe. Limburgish mostly derives from Old Limburgish and unfortunately there isn't much left of that language except for a few words, some sentences and two short poems.

An t-Oileánach[edit]

Hi Angr,

I thank you for your message - in fact it was your own contributions to Mo Sgéal Féin and Na Cheithre Soisgéil that made me want to try uploading an Irish book for myself, particularly as these are all of course very significant works of the Gaelic Revival and later. So yes, I would like to upload the entire text of An t-Oileánach over the next few days, and if you could help in validating the pages and ironing out mistakes I would very much appreciate it.

Thanks again,

noinclude tags[edit]

Hi Angr,

I have a slight problem and I was wondering if you could help me - on page 34 of An t-Oileánach the word ceangailte is wrapped onto page 34, and I'm trying to clear this up using the code

ceang<noinclude>-</noinclude><includeonly>ailte </includeonly><noinclude> [[Category:An t-Oileánach]]</noinclude>

However, the nature of the noinclude tag seems to be such that in adding this to the page, an extra hyphen is automatically inserted as some kind of byproduct of an automatically inserted div tag:

<div class="page text"> ceang<noinclude> -</div></noinclude>

So I just wanted to ask - do you know how to get rid of these noinclude tags? Because after they're inserted into the text it's as if they can't be removed.


Gherkinmad 21:00, 27 April 2011 (UTC)

Hello, Gherkinmad! You can write: <noinclude>ceang-</noinclude><includeonly>ceangailte</includeonly>. Crower 06:23, 28 April 2011 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done Please check if all well now.--Dsvyas (talk) 22:17, 24 March 2012 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Thank you for all your help :) Perhaps you could file a request for admin status so you don't have to ask for all the speedy deletions. --Ooswesthoesbes (talk) 14:24, 29 March 2012 (UTC)

And thanks for yours! I thought about requesting adminship, but I'm not sure how much more cleanup I still feel like doing. I kinda want to get back to just editing texts. —Angr 16:39, 29 March 2012 (UTC)
Well, I've found more things to be speedied, so I guess I can't resist the urge to clean up. My nomination is at Wikisource:Administrators#User:Angr. —Angr 09:35, 30 March 2012 (UTC)

High door for MOP for you, Angr

and very welcome !
--Zyephyrus (talk) 15:22, 11 April 2012 (UTC)
Yea, thank you! —Angr 17:30, 11 April 2012 (UTC)[edit]

We could really use your help on I notice you have an account but very few edits. I just made you a reviewer there (we have implemented flagged revisions).

I would also be interested in your thoughts on multilingual works. I find the process quite frustrating and would like to place them all here but seem to be the only one who likes that idea. As soon as I get through with an international move (Germany to US), I plan to put together a page on here about the many complexities of the issue.--Doug.(talk contribs) 17:31, 11 April 2012 (UTC)

Well, what sort of help do you need on la-ws? I'm not usually active at Wikisources unless I'm working on a specific text. As for multilingual works, I guess it depends on the specific circumstances. Do you have a particular example in mind? Where in Germany are you currently? I live in Berlin. —Angr 17:36, 11 April 2012 (UTC)
I live in Unterfranken, about 25km west of Bamberg. I haven't made it up to Berlin yet but I still hope I might make it before I move next month. I'll reply to your other questions shortly as I'll need to dig up some examples.--Doug.(talk contribs) 17:42, 11 April 2012 (UTC)

Re: go raibh maith agat[edit]

It was my pleasure to help. Thanks to you as the main contributor, it's not easy to find Irish content in any of the Spanish-speaking countries, so ga.wikisource is an unvaluable source of texts for me. --Juan renombrado (talk) 08:01, 3 January 2013 (UTC)

Mystery scribal mark in the Táin[edit]

Could you take a look at footnote 11 on page 71 of the Táin? There's a scribal mark that looks something like Japanese ン. I've left a red question mark as a placeholder in the text. Prosody (talk) 14:51, 6 March 2013 (UTC)

I'm not sure what it is. The punctus with comma positura perhaps? At any rate, it doesn't have a Unicode character, so I'd just make an image of it and insert that. —Angr 21:00, 7 March 2013 (UTC)

Another one[edit]

Upside down dagger on p. 92, footnote 8. Prosody (talk) 22:35, 26 March 2013 (UTC)

What it is is this. How to represent it in Unicode is less clear. A subscript Ɨ perhaps: "ms. CaƗ with Ɨ on an erasure"? —Angr 09:24, 28 March 2013 (UTC)

Spam filter[edit]

Angr, I tried to archive the 2012 Scriptorium discussions, but a spam filter disallowed this. Could you please create the page Wikisource:Scriptorium/Archives/2012 with the first sixty-one discussions here? Thanks in advance.--Erasmo Barresi (talk) 15:16, 10 April 2013 (UTC)

I can't do it either. Apparently just because it says "Inform an administrator" that doesn't mean an administrator can do it for you. —Angr 19:41, 11 April 2013 (UTC)

Starting WikiSource Projects in Indian languages.[edit]

Dear Angr,


I working on Wikimedia Projects in Indian languages. As I see, Hindi has been verified as a language eligible for Wikisource Project. Yet '' is a non-entity when Hindi is the national language of India. Hindi material is available in one or two categories on general Wikisource.

Indian regional languages such as Malayalam, Kannada, Telugu, etc, have a separate presence on Wikisource.

Can you please help me in getting this status for Hindi. Also other Indian languages such as Urdu?

Regards, Hindustanilanguage (talk) 06:44, 20 September 2013 (UTC).

As I understand it, to get Hindi Wikisource open, all the messages need to be translated into Hindi (see the comment from John Vandenberg at m:Requests for new languages/Wikisource Hindi#Other discussion) and there needs to be consistent work on Hindi text materials from several different editors here at Multilingual Wikisource. "Eligible" just means "eligible in principle", it doesn't mean "ready to go". —Angr 21:30, 26 September 2013 (UTC)

Help with harassment by cs.wikisource admins[edit]

Hi, I see you are admin of this wiki. On the local Village pump there's written: "This is the central location for discussing issues with Wikisource, and the place to ask for help." So I posted a plea for help there but noone replied. Would you please have a look? I'm being harassed by cs.wikisource admins, I was banned indef but I never did anything wrong on the wiki at all. Thanks in advance. --Auvajs (talk) 17:36, 20 January 2016 (UTC)


Whew. I forgot I shouldn't visit the main page while I have "destructive mode" on. I need to add some more checks to my JavaScript to prevent that kind of thing! Jon Harald Søby (talk) 13:59, 8 October 2019 (UTC)

@Jon Harald Søby: No problem! I was quite baffled for a few moments, though. —Mahāgaja · talk 14:02, 8 October 2019 (UTC)
