November 2012[edit]

Pages created by User:Гүзәл Ситдиҡова[edit]

This user posts own poems at Wikisource (see [1], [2]). According to our rule we have to exclude original writings by a contributor to the project and, thus, delete her pages. –BruTe 11:02, 5 November 2012 (UTC)

Guzal Sitdykova is a well-known Bashkir poetess, there are articles about her on several Wikis. Some of these pages contain the poems that have never been published before, but some of these poems have already been published. --Comp1089 (talk) 12:11, 6 November 2012 (UTC)
Generally it has been the peer review process that has been the decider, and if it is published that has been the qualifier. What you do when a published writer chooses you to have their other works is a little trickier. If you think that they are worthy of keeping, you would want to confirm that the person is who they say they are, and the OTRS process for hosting the works would be necessary. If the poet is published, then I would look to have the community agree to host the works, no precedence set from the action. billinghurst sDrewth 13:35, 6 November 2012 (UTC)
Poetry is a hard case unless it's a very well known author. I mean, I've published a poem before, but my work isn't exactly worthy of wikisource. I think we have a sort of unwritten quasi-notability-of-work-or-author rule; which is very hard to apply with regard to minority languages, I suspect most of us wouldn't recognize the name of the current poet laureate of our own country, let alone any other current poet from some other country. On the other hand, this page Wikisource:What_Wikisource_includes authorizes moving the work to user space. Provided, as was mentioned on IRC, the works are actually owned by the author. Publication could have involved transfer of rights, in which case the author may not be in a position to grant CC-BY-SA or better rights.--Doug.(talk contribs) 23:25, 6 November 2012 (UTC)
As there is a new poem Һине уйлап... Гүзәл Ситдиҡова by the author today and as I didn't find any notice on publshing before and a licence, I propose ether to delete these poems or to move them to the user space. -jkb- (talk) 07:20, 29 July 2013 (UTC)
This user continues adding new pages: Тән һәм йән. Гүзәл Ситдиҡова and Шиғыр түгел шиғыр. Гүзәл Ситдиҡова added today.
But regardless this poetry conforms our rules or not, we may have copyright problem. I see no response to @-jkb- request. Nor any OTRS ticket number provided. Nor any link to a page that confirms license/authorship. It seems to me that we still do not know whether User:Гүзәл Ситдиҡова is really Guzal Sitdykova, the author of this poetry. I suggest move the poetry to userspace (or even delete) until a clear confirmation is received. Ankry (talk) 10:28, 24 May 2015 (UTC)
The problem is: if it is a copyvio (and I think it can be definded as a copyvio), so it doesn't matter if it is in the article name space or in user name space or elsewhere. Copyvio stays copyvio everywhere and sould be deleted (when we later get a permission, so it can be restored antime). -jkb- (talk) 16:12, 24 May 2015 (UTC)
@-jkb-: Deletion requires admin rights. But as I can see no admin wanted to take a decision for over 2 years. So I do not believe such a decision to be taken soon. While moving the pages to userspace will probably not be ignored by the uploader and we may expect their action. Of course, if an admin wants to take the decission to delete the files temporarily, I will support this decision. But history of this section shows me that it is unlikely. Ankry (talk) 17:37, 24 May 2015 (UTC)
К сожалению, я поздно увидела эти записи. Не совсем поняла все, поскольку не владею английским. Приношу свои извинения. Размещенные мной стихи опубликованы в разные годы в разных изданиях. Новые стихи уже включены в сборник стихов, который ждет очереди в государственном книжном издательстве "Китап" (г.Уфа). К сожалению, мы вынуждены ждать несколько лет, когда подойдет очередь( мне обещали, что издадут в будущем году). Очень ограничена возможность публиковаться в журналах, поскольку на башкирском языке их мало, и также приходится ждать очередь для публикации. Эта беда тех, кто пишет на языках меньшинств.

Поскольку я являюсь волонтером Башкирской Википедии, разместившая или отредактировавшая сотни статей на башкирском, прошу проявить снисхождение, разрешить размещать стихи еще до публикации. Мои произведения пользуются спросом у читателей, они постоянно обращаются предоставить свежие произведения. А такая возможность есть только в Викитеке.

February 2015[edit]

Multiple files moved to commons[edit]

Dear admins, I worked on the move of some files to commons, I hope you can end the process and delete them from here. The files are:

Since they keep the same name, I think it is sufficient to delete the file from here and the index will be automatically linked to commons.

Thanks a lot and sorry for the work. --C.R. (talk) 16:24, 8 February 2015 (UTC)

  • Mostly done. The last one was a mess. I deleted all three pages, the index, and the file, along with several redirects for the index. There is already a djvu file at Index:'O luciano d''o Rre.djvu that you have mostly proofread and transcluded to 'O luciano d''o Rre. It's the very same edition, so there is no reason to start transcluding the work again as a pdf (if anything, you'd simply move the pages without redirects if you wanted to do that - but there is no good reason to do it unless the djvu is bad). The djvu should be uploaded to commons and the renaming should be done with the djvu. Also, there was an extensive discussion page at File talk:'O "luciano" d''o Rre.pdf. I moved it to be the discussion page of the djvu as the djvu didn't have one.

Also, note that these talk pages still exist:

File talk:'O Munasterio.pdf
File talk:Ncoppo marciapiede - frusso.pdf

They can probably be deleted but it could go either way. There isn't much there.

Finally, aren't the transcluded pages now ready to be migrated to or do local rules prevent it?--Doug.(talk contribs) 05:24, 15 February 2015 (UTC)

C.R. explained on my talk page that these files are nap, not it.--Doug.(talk contribs) 14:39, 15 February 2015 (UTC)

Wrong redirection category[edit]

Please delete this redirection category which I have created: Category:Иоанн-вельденьне Шкайстонь Ёнь-куля — files.
After I firstly created it, sooner I understood that it would be more correct to name the category without "— files" at the end of the name. I tried to rename it into Category:Иоанн-вельденьне Шкайстонь Ёнь-куля, so the redirection was created. By now, I have transfered yet all the pages into the new correct category. And that wrong category is now empty and is not needed any more. --Nigmont (talk) 19:12, 10 February 2015 (UTC)

A djvu file moved to Commons[edit]

Please delete this file:

Firstly I uploaded it here; today I have uploaded it to the WikiCommons (it is actually in PD worldwide, so the Commons is more appropriate storage for it). I think, as well as in the cases of files of C.R. mentioned above, the pages referencing to the file also will be relinked to the Commons after this local copy will be deleted. --Nigmont (talk) 20:22, 17 February 2015 (UTC)

Page Deletion[edit]

Please delete this page:

The reason for this is because this is the multilingual wikisource and this page should belong to the English Wikisource. I have already completed creating the new page for this on the English Wikisource, but in order for the process of the switch to be complete, I need that page to be deleted because it is quite useless being there.

Delete wrong category[edit]

Please delete this category: Category:Пици палакст. I created it first, but then I found that more proper name for this work should be "Пици-палакст" (this name is found everywhere in the book except the book-cover), and after that I created a new Category:Пици-палакст and moved all the items (indexes, pages and a file) from the prevous (which is put to deletion) to this category. --Nigmont (talk) 13:24, 29 March 2015 (UTC)

Простомолотов Евгений Иванович[edit]

It looks like attempt of creation of author's page. The text (written in Russian) describes an author and musician of Kazakhstan, that person seems to be still alive (was born in 1952 and the death is not mentioned on the page), and his works (if they exist) are to be still copyrighted now. --Nigmont (talk) 18:07, 10 May 2015 (UTC)

Прывет от думкі борис ласки[edit]

Written in Russian. I guess, looking on the stylistic, that the text is a romantic opus by some schoolboy or student. Most likely this is a self-published story, or (less likely) a copyvio. The author is not marked, the page creator is an anonymous user. --Nigmont (talk) 18:18, 10 May 2015 (UTC)

The Cooperative Production of Knowledge on the Internet—the Case of Wikipedia[edit]

' "Пици-палакснэнь" сёрмадыцядост' and related items[edit]

These pages and items that have been prevously added by me, should be deleted:

At the moment when I created these items, I erroneously believed that on the URAA date for Russia (1/1/1996) in the copyright laws of Russia there was not yet the statement about using the rehabilitation date as starting date for copyright protection term for repressed (i.e. unfairly penalized by abusing the laws) persons of USSR which were subsequently rehabilitated posthumously. I thought that only death date was prescribed in Russian copyright laws, and so far I thought that the copyright protection term had clearly expired for those authors, including the author of this work -- Ф.М.Чесноков, who was executed in the USSR in 1938 and rehabilitated in 1957. Recently (about the beginning of June yhis year) I found that I had been mistaken -- I described this on the English Wikisource: this and this edits. So the works by this author were still under copyright protection on the URAA date, thus all of them except pre-1923 works are under copyright protection in the US as well. So publishing this work is formally a copyright infringement, and all these items should be deleted. Sorry for my mistake (these copyright laws got too complicated and brought me to confusion).

Nevertheless the author's page itself, I think, may be allowed to remain here because it is very likely that this author wrote some works before 1923 (I replaced the license template on the page with Template:PD-US-1923-abroad as more actual) -- his age (he was born in 1896) perfectly allowed that (and I found a mention that he wrote his first story in 1922). --Nigmont (talk) 20:31, 18 June 2015 (UTC)

The work may not in fact be out of copyright in it's original publication country.)

Vinayak Damodar Savarkar died in 1966 (India having a 60 p.m.a term would mean the original expires in 2026)

However, this may be a pre-1923 publication in the US, so it's not on obvious copyright problem.

ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 10:18, 27 July 2015 (UTC)

Not done. The file is on commons, so this DR should be started on Commons, not here. Pre-1923 works copyrighted in the origin country are OK here, however. Ankry (talk) 12:02, 27 July 2015 (UTC)

Евгений Простомолотов + talk page[edit]

Unclear to me why it is created. Looks like author page or Wikipedia-like article. However, no free text of this author has been published and I doubt there is any free.

IMO, not appropriate for this project, but I am unsure, so asking for opinions here. Ankry (talk) 16:33, 13 September 2015 (UTC)

Looks like a promo page. Delete, no doubt. Candalua (talk) 13:54, 16 September 2015 (UTC)

Scoalaradustanian and User:Scoalaradustanian[edit]

Looks like Romanian spam. I'm not sure though. --Ooswesthoesbes (talk) 09:38, 30 September 2015 (UTC)

Scoala Radu Stanian (Ploiesti) seems to be the name of a school in Romania. And the text looks like some exercise or test for the children in class 8-A. I would say: delete as out of scope. :D --Candalua (talk) 14:10, 30 September 2015 (UTC)
Scoalaradustanian was definitely out of scope, so deleted. But I am unsure about user page. Ankry (talk) 07:19, 1 October 2015 (UTC)

Zazaki zıwan[edit]

This seems to be an encyclopedic/linguistic article and own work rather than source text.

I suggest deletion of this article unless somebody can provide exact source of this text.
