Hello Ankry, welcome to the multilingual Wikisource! Thanks for your interest in the project; we hope you'll enjoy the community and your work here.

This wiki is the original Wikisource wiki, originally hosting works in many languages. The larger collections have been spawned into separate projects, leaving this wiki to serve as a central collaboration point, and as an environment where works without a language subdomain can be started. Refer to our languages list to see which languages still reside on this wiki. You can find a list of the separate language projects on the main page or here and you may want to look at the our coordination page for limitations on placing certain works on the separate language projects.

Most questions and discussions about the community are in the Scriptorium.

The Community Portal lists tasks you can help with if you wish. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me on my talk page!

admin[edit]

Hello Ankry,

Do you prefer a simple one

...or a complicated one?

Congrats and welcome :-) --Zyephyrus (talk) 20:26, 21 June 2015 (UTC)

  • congrats as well from me! -jkb- (talk) 23:08, 21 June 2015 (UTC)

Unsourced works[edit]

Do we have a template for unsourced works? ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 07:49, 25 July 2015 (UTC)

@ShakespeareFan00 AFAIK, no. Ankry (talk) 07:55, 25 July 2015 (UTC)
Is there a template that could be imported, so that we can avoid proposed deletions by having a policy on removal of unsourced (and unlicensed works)?ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 07:57, 25 July 2015 (UTC)
@ShakespeareFan00 Just importing a template does not mean unsourced works may be speedydeleted. Also, for PD books source is irrelevant. Books are sources themself. Ankry (talk) 08:04, 25 July 2015 (UTC)
That may be your view, but without the source information and a formal license statment, it can be very hard to determine that the work is indeed under a compatible ’free license’ or in the public domain. In any case the works that can be proven should be moved to Commons. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 08:06, 25 July 2015 (UTC)
Agreed, for works that are PD in origin country: they shold be moved to commons, and then deleted. Pre-1923 works should be investigated more carefully. Ankry (talk) 08:35, 25 July 2015 (UTC)

User talk:Саган[edit]

I note a number of this users uploads are seemingly unsourced. Perhaps you could take a cautious look in order to avoid any mis-understandings? ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 13:16, 26 July 2015 (UTC)

Korczak po przeniesieniu[edit]

witam,
po pierwsze Gratulacje!!, dawno tu nie zaglądałem:)
a teraz do rzeczy: wydaje mi się, że po przeniesieniu (już jakiś czas temu) na pl ws; dobrze byłoby usunąć strony z indeksowe , strony z tekstami (często tutaj niekompletnymi, a dokończonymi na pl; np. Dzieci ulicy), Strony w przestrzeni Strona i Indeksy utworów Korczaka? Takie rozdwojenie utworów, w różnych stadiach "rozwoju" jest niekorzystne.
Zdzislaw (talk) 12:13, 17 August 2015 (UTC)

Tak. Nie miałem czasu tego przejrzeć. W wolnej chwili usunę. Jak chcesz to zekuj. Ankry (talk) 18:30, 17 August 2015 (UTC)
@zdzislaw: większość usunąłem; zastanawiałem się jednak, czy niektórych książek (np. Joski...) nie udostępnić tutaj z obrazkami, które nie są PD w .pl
jedyny problem, który widzę, to zapewnienie aktualności wersji - trzeba by tekst trnaskludować w jakiś sposób z pl, aby zmiany w pl w treści odzwierciedlone były także tutaj - czy gra jest warta świeczki? Zdzislaw (talk) 11:00, 18 August 2015 (UTC)

Pratobello[edit]

I deleted the page, bye Fpittui (talk) 08:47, 7 October 2015 (UTC)

IMAM QASIM SAQI[edit]

I uploaded the front page of my first book which was published in the year of 2006 and got best book award from Andhra Pradesh Urdu Academy (Literary Award) ,I would like to upload the whole book for that I need your help , if it is possible please help me103.245.198.202

@IMAM QASIM SAQI, 103.245.198.202: A 2006 book is copyrighted and its cover cannot be stored in Wikimedia projects without a written free license permission unless the book was published under C-BY-SA 3.0-compatible license (you provided no proof for that on the image description page).
Moreover, only scans that are in public domain in US (generally, published before 1.1.1923) and not in public domain in the source country are in Wikisource.org scope. Any other images used in this project should be uploaded to Wikimedia Commons.
We collect texts, not images. Images are used here only as (1) the source of text or (2) text illustrations, so again out of Wikisource.org scope as we not have text of this book under CC-BU-SA 3.0-compatible license. Ankry (talk) 16:04, 12 October 2015 (UTC)

Index:Guideline on Environmentally Sound Testing, Refurbishment, & Repair of Used Computing Equipment.pdf[edit]

Hello. Some pages haven't been deleted: Special:Contributions/99.175.212.177, Special:Contributions/Computer_R&R. Hausratte (talk) 15:47, 29 November 2015 (UTC)

@Hausratte: I know that a lot of work with cleaning of these recent deletions remains, but I am a bit busy somewhere else. If you wish to help us, you can mark the orphan pages with {{delete}}, so any admin can see the request. Ankry (talk) 18:05, 29 November 2015 (UTC)
  • Ok, Yes check.svg . Thanks for your work. Hausratte (talk) 19:19, 29 November 2015 (UTC)

Anti-spam nonsense[edit]

Trying to add anything to Wikisource talk:ProofreadPage is automatically dismissed as spam.
What is going on around here?
Sincerely, Varlaam (talk) 09:05, 11 December 2015 (UTC)

It appears to be a Catch-22.
You can't add an edit unless you already have an edit.
Varlaam (talk)
@Varlaam: thanks for your report; the filter you triggered is a new one imported from mediawiki wiki and likely not fully suitable for wikisource. Probably, some rules needs to be modified after roports like yours (we were warned the filter triggers also false positives). Can you retry your previously rejected edit or mail me its content to help us to improve the filter? The babel you just created should never trigger the filter. Ankry (talk) 10:32, 11 December 2015 (UTC)
Hi.
The Babel fixed the problem, by allowing me to have 1 edit.
Before that, I could not edit Wikisource:ProofreadPage, Wikisource talk:ProofreadPage, or your Talk page here.
Thanks, Varlaam (talk) 18:05, 11 December 2015 (UTC)
I have added the missing '.' which was my original problem.
Cheers, Varlaam (talk)
@Varlaam: Thanks again. Such edits by new users should no longer trigger the spam filter. Ankry (talk) 18:34, 11 December 2015 (UTC)
It is pleasing to see a sysop who knows what he's doing!
Totally unlike enwiki.
Thanks, Varlaam (talk) 00:06, 12 December 2015 (UTC)

Index:Rashida kniga.pdf[edit]

Can you restore the page Index:Rashida kniga.pdf, I accidentally messed up. Do not remove,plese. Authors Author:Эльза Мөхәмәҙиева and Author:Рәшиҙә Ғизәтуллина are preparing a letter to OTRS of permission to publish own artilis.--Саган (talk) 16:53, 9 January 2016 (UTC)

@Саган: I hope I did not mess it more. Please check. Ankry (talk) 22:25, 9 January 2016 (UTC)
  • Thank you. We design OTRS, we have never done this before.--Саган (talk) 06:22, 10 January 2016 (UTC)
  • @Саган: I think, Commons my be a good base here (also multilingual). But note, that according to WMF policy, CC-BY-SA-3.0 is the only valid license for texts (unlike images). Ankry (talk) 18:39, 10 January 2016 (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) 17:37, 20 January 2016 (UTC)

If you like formatting templates....[edit]

... take a look to Page:Altavilla - Li ttre epoche.djvu/1, {{Ct}} (it means Center+Type) is one of my best templates for frontispieces. --Alex brollo (talk) 08:14, 28 January 2016 (UTC)

@Alex brollo: If interested in advanced formatting, you can also look at {{f}}, {{f*}} and {{c}} templates in plwikisource. The use LUA engine however (some parameters are in Polish). Ankry (talk) 09:16, 28 January 2016 (UTC)
Very interesting, thank you! I'll think about importing it here (and into it.source too) - after a little bit of internationalization. --Alex brollo (talk) 10:35, 28 January 2016 (UTC)

Hi,[edit]

see my last two new entries on Scriptorium, cheers -jkb- (talk) 15:18, 30 January 2016 (UTC)

A new Module[edit]

Just to let you know about Module:Testo inspired to it:Modulo:Testo, coming (as a rough idea) from mul.source Module:Nap. It recovers and shows medatata & links for ns0 page title using data from Index page.

* {{testo|O Panu Czorlińscim co do Pucka po sece jachoł}}

gives:

I can't imagine if it's a fresh idea or one more "rediscovering the wheel" :-) --Alex brollo (talk) 07:33, 29 March 2016 (UTC)

@Alex brollo: likely nice tool, but I would like to concentrate on translation infrastructure in near future. Ankry (talk) 08:16, 29 March 2016 (UTC)
As I told, I mentioned it only to let you know, since you are a very active sysop here. Thanks for comment. I'll post (perhaps) a mention of it into Scriptorium too. --Alex brollo (talk) 08:45, 29 March 2016 (UTC)

Response[edit]

Dear Ankry, I've responded you on my talk page. Could you please read? Lizalizaufa (talk) 06:41, 31 March 2016 (UTC)

Texts in Jamaican[edit]

Hi! Thanks for your welcome. I am translating those texts into Jamaican from the English version in Wikisource. They have never been published in Jamaican so how do I state that? Maybe should I put those texts in Wikibooks instead of Wikisource? (I do not know the difference very well). --Katxis (talk) 12:38, 5 May 2016 (UTC)

Something like this? --Katxis (talk) 08:36, 6 May 2016 (UTC)
Maybe like this? --Katxis (talk) 09:04, 8 May 2016 (UTC)

Unblock RahmanuddinBot immediately[edit]

Hello,

Please respond to https://wikisource.org/wiki/Wikisource:Scriptorium#Books_to_be_added_using_bot_on_Sourcewiki_Wikisource_for_Hindi before blocking my bot. --రహ్మానుద్దీన్ (talk) 14:26, 23 June 2016 (UTC)

@రహ్మానుద్దీన్: Your edit to Scriptorium was hidden by massive bot edits. There is rather little number of active users on this wiki, so RC are monitored once a week or two. Do not expect a quick response. I will unblock you and your bot if do not make massive edits without the bot flag. You can respond me on another wiki or on your userpage. Ankry (talk) 14:59, 23 June 2016 (UTC)

wav in the filter[edit]

Hi Ankry, pls see my change in the filter No 8, I added wav - I hope the syntax is OK, -jkb- (talk) 11:42, 15 December 2016 (UTC) - - - PS veryx good idea btw!

@-jkb-: No, the intention of this filter is to disallow everything except djvu/pdf. Maybe it should also allow jpg/gif/tiff/png but I doubt it is necessary as images in most cases should go to Commons. Ankry (talk) 11:49, 15 December 2016 (UTC)
OK OK OK, mea culpa, you are right. Regards -jkb- (talk) 11:51, 15 December 2016 (UTC)

RE: File:Poesie - Salvatore Di Giacomo pp150-151.djvu[edit]

you are right, it is to be deleted, -the master is in commons, I double checked it's ok- thanks! --C.R. (talk) 22:32, 15 December 2016 (UTC)

How can I remove the file?[edit]

Hello Ankry,

It seems I have uploaded the PouvreauGuduespirituala.djvu file not properly. Could you tell me how can I remove it from wikisource?

Thank you in advance. --Izaskun.etxeberria (talk) 13:27, 19 December 2016 (UTC)

@Izaskun.etxeberria: Just ask any admin for deletion after you upload it to Wikimedia Commons. I suggest using the same filename there. The file is not a big problem here. Just it is easier to keep the project clean if files are in proper locations. Ankry (talk) 14:53, 19 December 2016 (UTC)

Help with Transclusion[edit]

Hello! I have transcluded Bukvar staroslovenskoga jezika glagolskimi pismeni za čitanje crkvenih knjig. Most of the text is good, but some of the footnotes have disappeared, and many images do not line up or are too big or too small. If you have time, could you give me any suggestions?

Thank you. Or if I remember right, dziękuję! Inatan (talk) 19:22, 28 February 2017 (UTC)

@Inatan: You may need to set image width or height like height like here (without initial x it means width). What do you mean by "disappeared footnotes" ?
Did you consider splitting the text into few pages (sections)? Ankry (talk) 19:36, 28 February 2017 (UTC)

Please add information about:

   language (language category)
   author
   published source
   copyright status (license template)

May I know where to put this information. puranastudy(Vipin Kumar)

The information should be placed somewhere on the page. You can use the {{header}} template like it is used here or here or in another way convenient to you. Ankry (talk) 11:10, 4 March 2017 (UTC) Thanks for information. I have tried to follow it. But language category is not included in this header template. puranastudy

Copyright[edit]

Hello Ankry File:ჰასან რუმლუ - 1966.pdf and File:ისქანდერ მუნში - 1969.pdf from public library sites in Georgia unsigned message by User:Giakosh

@Giakosh: Being freely available does not mean "not copyrighted". Texts with unclear US copyright status should not be upladed here. Moreover, copyright status in Georgia may be generally irrelevant here. However, as Georgia signed the Berne Convention, copyright status of these texts in Georgia on 1.1.1996 may be relevant (see this table) for US copyright status. If the texts are really PD, we need a clear explanation why (basing on copyright law) they are PD. Pure declaration (by a non-author) that a book is PD is just void. Can you prove that the author of these books died before 1.1.1926? Ankry (talk) 18:46, 10 July 2017 (UTC)

hello Ankry

Autor of File:ჰასან რუმლუ - 1966.pdf is ḤASAN BEG RUMLU w:ru:Хасан-бек Румлу (1531-1580). His work was translated and publiced in Georgia at 1966 y.

Autor of File:ისქანდერ მუნში - 1969.pdf is Iskandar Beg Munshi w:ru:Искандер Мунши(1560-1634). His work was translated and publiced in Georgia at 1969 y.

unsigned message by User:Giakosh

@Giakosh: Translators are considered to be authors as well. Unless Georgian copyright law states otherwise. Did translators also die before 1926? Anonymous works from 1960-ties are copyrighted in US 95 years from publication, unless Geogrian pre-1996 law states otherwise.

You should explain that here, not only for me.

How to become an administrator[edit]

Our User:Lizalizaufa wants to be the administrator of the Bashkir Source, which would later become a separate project. Could you explain how to become an administrator. --ZUFAr (talk) 10:24, 5 March 2018 (UTC)
