Call for feedback about Wikimedia Foundation Bylaws changes and Board candidate rubric[edit]

Hello. Apologies if you are not reading this message in your native language. Please help translate to your language.

Today the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees starts two calls for feedback. One is about changes to the Bylaws mainly to increase the Board size from 10 to 16 members. The other one is about a trustee candidate rubric to introduce new, more effective ways to evaluate new Board candidates. The Board welcomes your comments through 26 October. For more details, check the full announcement.

Please add language template to main page template[edit]

Hello. I discovered that the letters on the page 'Template:TopTenCircle' did not have language codes. So I tried to add the 'Lang template' ({{Lang}}) to that template page, but I couldn't do it because the page was protected. So I want someone to add the template to 'Template:TopTenCircle' (For example: Special:Diff/850216 <User:TKsdik8900/sandbox 04:07, 18 October 2020‎>). In summary, I want to see the page 'Template:TopTenCircle' content replaced by Special:Diff/850216. I also used machine translation, so I'm sorry if there is any confusion in this text. Thank you. --TKsdik8900 (talk) 04:43, 18 October 2020 (UTC)

Undeletion of an old logo image[edit]

File:Stw-wslogo2.png was uploaded in 2006, apparently as part of a contest, and Yann (talkcontribs) deleted it afterwards. Apparently someone else remixed it and made File:Contactus-wmcolors.png, which has been somewhat widely used since then. The deleted file would arguably be a part of the other file's history, and perhaps of the history of the project, that we would like to maintain. Administrators: can you please undelete it? Even better, can you import it to Commons with its file history?

Here are some more details. Judging by an edit summary given by Eloquence (talkcontribs), it looks like the file is currently used as part of File:Contactus-wmcolors.png (a file with 100+ usages) - it would be nice if the original file with its history remains available. It seems that the creator was Stw (talkcontribs) and the work was made public domain. [28] Whym (talk) 08:34, 31 October 2020 (UTC)

Needless deletion of empty categories[edit]

I have noticed that administrator User:Koavf deleted in the past some "public domain" categories with comment "empty cat.", for example: "11:59, 25 July 2020 Koavf talk contribs deleted page Category:PD-anon-75-1996 (empty cat.)". I think that it is a bad idea — to speedy delete good (not vandal) categories having the only reason that the category is empty. The fact that a category is empty does not mean that the category is not needed any longer: the category may be empty now, but it may become not empty in the future, so there may be no sense in deleting it for now. For example, the category cited above — Category:PD-anon-75-1996 — has become needed again. It should be noticed, that the English Wikisource has not such a reason for speedy deletion as that "the category is empty" — see en:Wikisource:Deletion policy, section Speedy deletion; and in fact, they do not delete empty PD categories — see en:Category:Works by license, for example — categories "PD-old-60-1996" and "Image-PD-old-75".

So I ask: To undelete this (PD-anon-75-1996) and other PD categories. Here is the list (may be not full — maybe I missed something) of PD-categories deleted by Koavf, which must be restored, in my opinion:

Also I propose to the community (especially to admins) — do not speedy delete (or do not request speedy deletion) good categories only by the reason that the category is empty. Instead of that, if you think that the category is not needed any longer on Wikisource — nominate it on the Wikisource:Proposed deletions first and proceed usual deletion discussion. And I specifically point out, that I propose this not only for "public domain" categories but also all others — I think all categories should pass through normal discussion and only after that may be deleted. Reasonable exceptions may be, of course, but as a general rule — it should be accepted that a discussion is required before deletion of empty categories. --Nigmont (talk) 20:17, 21 November 2020 (UTC)

It's easy to ask for undeletion or to just recreate the category yourself: nothing was stopping you from doing that. —Justin (koavf)TCM 20:54, 21 November 2020 (UTC)
The fact that some action may be easily corrected by some other action — it cannot justify that the first, initial action was good and must not be frowned on. Each sort of vandalism (except, may be, administrative vandalism) may be easily reverted, but it's cannot serve a reason to say that a vandalism should be forgiven and tolerated, and that vandalism is a nice thing. I don't want to say that needless deletion of categories is a some kind of vandalism, but nevertheless, needless deletion of categories also belongs to area of wrong-doing (to which vandalism also belongs to), and to some sort of abuse of admin's privileges; and it at least must be considered as a mistake, if nothing more. --Nigmont (talk) 21:19, 21 November 2020 (UTC)
There are an infinite amount of categories that we could have that could be useful about Dinka poetry or 2054 works etc. That's no justification for having a raft of empty categories. —Justin (koavf)TCM 21:37, 21 November 2020 (UTC)
I didn't say about "having a raft of empty categories". I just said that you should not delete categories by your personal judgement only, but instead of that — you should deliver decision to all the community (by putting on Wikisource:Proposed deletions), and let them to decide — whether category is really not needed. Please notice, that other admins do not behave like you. It seems to me that you pose yourselves to be smarter than all other users here (including admins) put together, but it does not seem to be true that you are smarter than all others, considering your past mistakes in this year, alike — futile categorizing of languages which disturbed other users, and inept importing of author's template and involved items, after which action the normal work of wikidata for author's page was broken. So I propose you to put away your self-overestimation and be wise, and don't delete categories by personal judgement only. Those categories didn't bothered all other admins, and they didn't touch them; do you really think that they are just fools here, and only you occured to be enough intelligent to make proper decisions on those categories, without discussion? --Nigmont (talk) 22:07, 21 November 2020 (UTC)
In addition: "to just recreate the category yourself" — to do this way is wrong, because after this action the history of category is lost (at least, it is not seen for non-admins). The history of categories (the same as for other pages) is important, isn't it?
"There are an infinite amount of categories that we could have that could be useful about Dinka poetry or 2054 works etc." — There are different kinds of probability of when and where some category may be used in the future. You proposed examples of categories which currently are useless (and were useless in the past), but for some other categories there is quite other probability of existence. For PD-categories — even if they were empty now then they were used in the past, and most likely will be used in the future, so to delete them is an unreasоnаble and futile action. For example, Category:PD-old-99-1923 is currently filled and needed. In the next year (2021) it will become empty, and you will delete it? And in 2023 year — it will be needed again... Why to delete and then recreate such categories? Why not just to leave them to remain? --Nigmont (talk) 22:51, 21 November 2020 (UTC)
I deleted an empty category. Please dial down all your nonsense and accusations. —Justin (koavf)TCM 01:10, 22 November 2020 (UTC)
We should better specify which empty categories to be speedily deleted, to be deleted with discussions, or to be kept even when empty.--Jusjih (talk) 00:29, 30 November 2020 (UTC)

The unknowable (because little described?)[edit]

It amazes me how often I'll come across something which is "just known" by 'everyone', yet is nowhere made apparent. If you weren't here back then, if you haven't been following along, well, why should we tell you?

Here, it is the term/idea of "Multilingual Wikisource". Wait you say, you're here! Really? What tells me so? Naught on the main page. Nothing immediately shows up elsewhere about policy of what is this "wikisource.org" site. Isn't it just a portal to the other real wikisources? What is this place? What is this place for?

I realize now that an index I was looking at makes perfect sense for one meaning of multilingual - it is a book in one language describing/teaching another language. But it was just that question, why is the index here that made me look for information and yet come up basically empty-handed.

I think I now understand that there has been a substantial long-term evolution from wikisource.org being one catch-all bucket to lots and lots of single language Wikisources, with some of those grabbing most of the energy at Wikisource. With "wikisource.org" left as... just what isn't predominantly single language?

Is there a reason there is no description of Wikisource.org itself and what it is for? It seems as though the process of organization of everywhere else has left no energy for organizing here. Shenme (talk) 06:58, 7 December 2020 (UTC)

@Shenme: Indeed, this is the original Wikisource and was intended to be for source texts in all languages. But starting fairly early on, some languages spun out their own domains like en.wikisource.org, es.wikisource.org, fr.wikisource.org, de.wikisource.org, etc., etc. What's left here is actually mostly texts in languages that don't have their own domain (yet); texts in multiple languages also belong here but texts like that are comparatively rare. —Mahāgaja · talk 19:46, 7 December 2020 (UTC)
But, SCNR, if one has a look on the top of this page, he schould see there (on the left) What is Wikisource? very quickly. It is there. -jkb- (talk) 22:41, 7 December 2020 (UTC)
Hmm, down below History is one paragraph:
Wikisource is a multilingual project. Texts and translations of texts are welcome in all languages that have no own subdomain.
Searching much more I find at Wikisource:Languages there is a note:
This wiki has a total of 33,041 content pages. The vast majority are accounted for in the language categories listed in the chart above.
I count just less than 30000 in the table, so the statement is accurate. The actual pages at wikisource.org here for reasons of themselves being multilingual are < 3000.
Mahāgaja's statement
texts in multiple languages also belong here but texts like that are comparatively rare.
should probably be mentioned in that very short paragraph at Languages and translations, even if through numbers and impact the multilingual aspect doesn't deserve mention on wikisource.org Main Page. Okay for me to do that? Shenme (talk) 01:25, 8 December 2020 (UTC)

What to do about "What?"[edit]

An IP dropped a couple of... items. Not exactly Italian - a dialect. Google translate suspects Corsican. I'm wondering at "Friull ringrazie il cit" (Friuli thanks him) as Friulian. Geolocates to northern Italy.

Two pages, dropped in main space, lacking attribution or even which language, by an IP. The first dropping is at best a ribald song. (tu sès un gran minchion ~=~ you are a big fool) Could be famous songs, or school jokes.

What to do? Shenme (talk) 09:24, 11 December 2020 (UTC)

Ah, farther back in time we have User:Mizardellorsa adding pages, such as Pater noster par furlan which begins:
Pari nestri ch’ees in cijl
See sanctificaat là to nom
Cute web site has article Mapping Europe's Linguistic Diversity via the Lord's Prayer which has
Foro-Juliani: (old outdated naming)
Pari nestri ch'ees in Cyl. See sanctificaat la to Nom
so, yes, Friuli?
Ah, I see User:Mizardellorsa adding notes to Main Page/Furlan (wikt:furlan)
Is there some categorization that is being skipped for these added pages? Like Category:Furlan ? Shenme (talk) 09:43, 11 December 2020 (UTC)

What to do about "Yuck!"[edit]

Wisisource tells me an error: Error: a numeric value is expected. I had previously reported this problem and would like to know if a solution is in sight.

Can you help?

About long poems[edit]

Hello everyone and happy new year. This is my first time coming to Wikisource. Wanna say, it's really nice here.

If I do edit, I'll be editing Georgian entries/poems, so I have a few questions on formatting and especially on long poems. Right now დავითიანი exists as a page written in Latin script. Itself, it's a long poem consisting of different chapters and one of the chapters is ALREADY separated as another page სწავლა მოსწავლეთა, which I just recently filled. So, uhm, what would be the best:

  1. delete სწავლა მოსწავლეთა and keep დავითიანი to renew it
  2. delete დავითიანი and add all chapters separately.

Another question is, if we choose the second option, should we like create a category called დავითიანი under დავით გურამიშვილის პოემები (poems of davit guramishvili) and have all chapters there?

Thank you in advance :D -Solarkoid (talk) 15:56, 3 January 2021 (UTC)

As far as I can see we have a georgian section here, see Category:Georgian. Try to find somebody there and discuss this problem with him/her. If there is something to be deleted so mark the page with {{delete}} + reason, no problem for me or for my colleagues to do so. Cheers -jkb- (talk) 21:57, 3 January 2021 (UTC)

Advanced Search "Pages in this language" is not working as described[edit]

Hi, I tried a simple Advanced Search of "automobile" and then selected "English" from the drop down on Pages in this language. But the search results still show source texts in other languages that are not English. I noticed the Info icon next to the Pages in this language that describes how it should work, but it doesn't work as described. --Thadguidry (talk) 20:07, 9 January 2021 (UTC)

@Thadguidry: This is a great point. There is a problem here with data integrity and I've fixed a few hundred pages but there are tens of thousands left to go. The problem is, if you go to any page (e.g. Page:Ag séideadh agus ag ithe - Ua Laoghaire.djvu/24), you can see page information (in this case: https://wikisource.org/w/index.php?title=Page:Ag_s%C3%A9ideadh_agus_ag_ithe_-_Ua_Laoghaire.djvu/24&action=info) and one of the pieces of info stored here is the language (in this case, it's correct: "ga - Irish"). So when you are using the search by language feature, the MediaWiki software should only be searching pages that have the correct language. Unfortunately, since the default is English, unless someone deliberately changes a given page's information to another language, then many English-language pages will show up flooding results. E.g. Әкеміз was in "en - English" until just now, when I changed it to "kk - Kazakh".Justin (koavf)TCM 23:58, 9 January 2021 (UTC)
To be more clear, I initiated the Advanced Search from the regular domain Wikisource URL. I did not initiate the search from the English subdomain Wikisource URL. By the way, I keep getting an error when I try to include URL's in my posting and replies here. It keeps saying I'm a new user or something and is treating them as external URL's and SPAM so I cannot give you the URL's I'm using to help. (Help Admin?) --Thadguidry (talk) 01:38, 10 January 2021 (UTC)
@Thadguidry: Yes, I understood that you were searching this edition of Wikisource and not en:. Unfortunately, admins can't unilaterally make you able to be able to post links (without editing the edit filter itself): you'll have to make [x] edits and be a member here for [y] days in order for that restriction to be lifted. —Justin (koavf)TCM 01:46, 10 January 2021 (UTC)
So what are your next steps to resolve the search filtering problem? Or is this some mass corrections that need to be made to tens of thousands of pages and is really the only proper way to fix it? I.E. is it simply a problem because some users made pages in some wrong language category? --Thadguidry (talk) 02:00, 10 January 2021 (UTC)
Mass corrections. The problem is that persons made pages not in the wrong language as such but that the new pages weren't marked with a language and that default is English. Search in a non-English language and you are liable to get better results but they will be incomplete and missing all of the pages that aren't properly marked. —Justin (koavf)TCM 02:40, 10 January 2021 (UTC)

MediaWiki:Sp-contributions-footer[edit]

Can somebody tell me why the MediaWiki:Sp-contributions-footer (and MediaWiki:Sp-contributions-footer-anon) do not work? We have both since years. -jkb- (talk) 20:45, 12 January 2021 (UTC)

@-jkb-: Not sure what you mean. When I go to Special:Contributions/-jkb-, I see that footer displayed. —Justin (koavf)TCM 08:19, 14 January 2021 (UTC)
I wonder what is wrong. When I see the contribution pages (both registered user and IPs) I don't see it. When I go to other projects (either wikisource or wikipedie) everything is OK. As far as I can see I have no sdcripts here that could influence this... -jkb- (talk) 15:05, 14 January 2021 (UTC)

MediaWiki Wikisource extension installation[edit]

Hi! The MediaWiki Wikisource extension is installed on all language-based Wikisources but not on old Wikisource. This extension now contains code to link to Wsexport in the MediaWiki navigation sidebar. So, it might make sense to install it here too in order to replace the current wsexport gadget. Is there anyone who has concerns about it? Tpt (talk) 20:31, 20 January 2021 (UTC)

While silence is approval, I don't like it when no one responds to good faith questions like this. So to chime in: I don't have concerns and I don't see any reason why this edition of Wikisource would be exempt. —Justin (koavf)TCM 22:14, 20 January 2021 (UTC)
Honestly, I have no Idea what the extension could be :-); if people, who can judge it, have no objections, so do I. -jkb- (talk) 23:04, 20 January 2021 (UTC)

Wikidata links are here![edit]

Following from #On WIkidata links, it is now possibile to link Wikidata items to pages on this site, finally! Many thanks to the people who made this possible.

Links can be added in the "Multilingual sites" box (not the "Wikisource" box), by typing "s" for "sources" or "m" for "multilingual wikisource" (example).

Previously, we used Template:Interwiki to simulate a link; this template should no longer be used. On pages that use it, we need to add the link on Wikidata and then remove the template, I will start doing it but help is welcome. Candalua (talk) 08:30, 24 February 2021 (UTC)

  • Actually it looks like no one asked for interlanguage links, so everything works except for interlanguage links, and now the developers ask for community consensus to enable interlanguage links as well. I obviously Symbol support vote.svg Support enabling interlanguage links pointing to other Wikisources (not Wikipediæ, as on other multilingual wikis), and hope that many other people will express their opinion. —Tacsipacsi (talk) 10:51, 27 February 2021 (UTC)

Two main pages?[edit]

When creating items for main pages, I came across the following pairs:

Maybe they can be merged, maybe not. Jura1 (talk) 10:43, 28 February 2021 (UTC)

I merged them. Each one of the two had one page with more contents as well as more edits, so I made the guess that that would be the best one. The other redirects to it. --Ooswesthoesbes (talk) 08:22, 1 March 2021 (UTC)
