Hello Koavf, 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!

DP Connection[edit]

Hi, I noticed you edited Wikisource:Wikisource and Project Gutenberg. Do you have any connection with Project Gutenberg? I am a proofreader that has drifted over from pg and feel that a collaboration between Distributed Proofreaders and Wikisource could be very valuable re proofreader development. I am appalled at how little proofreading seems to have been done at Wikisource. I know there are a lot of frustrated proofreaders at DP who want practice. It seems an ideal to advertise Wikisource to novice proofreaders. I wouldn't know who/how to approach at DP... Any thoughts? Zoeannl 05:41, 19 April 2015 (UTC)

@Zoeannl: I am also registered at DP as well and I'd be very happy to see content pass between our communities. As for who to contact, part of the difficulty is that there are several distinct DP communities... What have you been thinking? —Justin (koavf)TCM 05:45, 19 April 2015 (UTC)
I've just found this forum post on DP-what's really interesting is that it took months for anyone to mention Wikisource. I put in my 2 cents and had an immediate reply telling how much better the PP support is now. Kinda missing the point. And maybe part of the problem? --Zoeannl (talk) 09:31, 22 April 2015 (UTC)
DP and WS Excuse my delay in getting back. If you want to reach me more directly, e-mail works best. I think it's a little silly for our two communities to not work together: it's virtually trivial to take a text from one and post it to the other anyway. I've posted there as well. How were you told that DP is better than WS? Through a private message? What is the best way to contact you? —Justin (koavf)TCM 22:20, 3 May 2015 (UTC)


@Koavf: we're back in business, though not finished setting up. (see wl discussion page on here)

join us? :)

@Lx 121: I'm looking now. I've been busy since set up but I have an account there. I'm excited to see something happening. —Justin (koavf)TCM 19:48, 2 April 2017 (UTC)


Please, do not archive unresponded sections ("Restore link") so fast. They can be missed this way. Ankry (talk) 09:11, 18 February 2018 (UTC)

@Ankry: Sorry--I misread that as it had been restored. —Justin (koavf)TCM 16:30, 18 February 2018 (UTC)
