Hello Aphillipsmusique, 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!

Pages for works[edit]

Hi. We don't put place holder pages in place for works in copyright, they are considered out of scope. We would list them on the author page, and you can utilise {{copyright until}} on the translator's page. — billinghurst sDrewth 04:56, 22 November 2014 (UTC)

Boethius[edit]

Hello Aphillipsmusique, why do you copy The Consolation of Philosophy from en.wikisource to mul.wikisource, is it on purpose? Regards, --Zyephyrus (talk) 09:31, 27 February 2015 (UTC)

Hello Zyephyrus. No. I didn't know it already existed on here until I had created the page there. Unfortunately, I don't have the power to delete pages as only the Administrators do. It would be quite helpful if I had that. Anyway, thanks for letting me know about this issue. → Aphillipsmusique (talk) 04:42, 28 February 2015 (UTC)
Hello, Aphillipsmusique! I want to add a comment for you (maybe it will be helpful): if you wish to publish The Consolation of Philosophy translated by H.R. James, you still may do that, I think, since the English Wikisource seemingly contain only translation by Walter John Sedgefield (on the link which was provided by Zyephyrus) — I haven't find other translations there. The rules of Wikisource allow publishing more than one translation of the same work. But it needed to say that the English translations (and other works) should be published on the English Wikisource (the separate sub-domain) instead of publishing here, at the multilingual Wikisource. The multilingual Wikisource is appointed for such languages only which have not yet been granted their own Wikisource sub-domain, and it is not the case of the English language, of course. --Nigmont (talk) 12:17, 28 February 2015 (UTC)
Hello, Nigmont. I went to edit it on wikisource today and I've found I can't put on the multilingual wikisource. Would I put it on the English Wikisource? → Aphillipsmusique (talk) 04:56, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
Yes, you should put this translation (and any other English works as well) there - on the English Wikisource. If you consider to get some introductory learning, then you may read manuals collected on the page en:Wikisource:Community_portal. Also there is a great community there, so you may ask for help (if needed) on the page en:Wikisource:Scriptorium/Help. --Nigmont (talk) 07:00, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
I have created and have started to edit the page on the English Wikisource. You can reach it here: The Consolation of Philosophy (James)Aphillipsmusique (talk) 08:20, 7 March 2015 (UTC)
Good! The Consolation of Philosophy is undoubtedly a great work, so it is in favor of the English Wikisource to keep that translation too. I have added there copyright tags on the title page of the work and on the page of the author of the translation, to make it clear that the work is in Public Domain and free of copyright.
Finally, I think that the page which you firstly started here, on the multilingual Wikisiurce, should be put under deletion because you have already transfered all the contents to the English Wikisource. I could do this, or you can do it yourself: via putting Template:Delete tag on the page, and putting a request on the Wikisource:Proposed deletions. Regards, Nigmont (talk) 10:01, 7 March 2015 (UTC)
