This page collects requests for deleting specific articles from Wikisource. If you want a page deleted for copyright reasons please list it at Wikisource:Possible copyright violations. If you think a page should be deleted for any other reason, please list it here so it can be discussed. Articles remaining on this page should be deleted if there is no significant opposition. Use {{delete}}.

If requesting deleting any pages to be moved to language subdomains, please try to have edit history imported to the destinations. Asking any active importers or administrators there is preferred. Otherwise, global sysops and stewards may be able to import.

December 2016[edit]

Khmer duplicated file[edit]

Those files are exact duplicates: File:Kambuja Suriya 1965 Issue 6.pdf and File:Kambuja Suriya 1966 Issue 6.pdf. Which one is the correct one, 1965 or 1966? No feedback from User_talk:ទេព_សុវិចិត្រ#Duplicated file. After looking close to w:en:Khmer numerals, and to other books from 1966 (កម្ពុជសុរិយា/ឆ្នាំទី៣៨) and 1965 (កម្ពុជសុរិយា/ឆ្នាំទី៣៧), I think that the PDF says "1966". -Aleator 16:19, 8 December 2016 (UTC)

He seems to have overridden the 1965 page. I think the earlier version might be the original. --Ooswesthoesbes (talk) 09:32, 6 March 2018 (UTC)

July 2017[edit]


The pages in the category already exists at Assamese Wikisource. please delete them

I think বেটুপাত should remain. I started deletion of others. Ankry (talk) 08:17, 22 August 2017 (UTC)
Also Author:বিষ্ণু প্ৰসাদ ৰাভা does not seem to be imported. Ankry (talk) 12:46, 22 August 2017 (UTC)

September 2017[edit]


No author, no source.

It is an English text looking rather like a user created article than a source text. Also, it is in English: all English language texts are not appropriate here and should go to enwikisource. Blossfeldia liliputańa (talk) 10:33, 16 September 2017 (UTC)

The fragments are worth being kept, but the English text surrounding them look like original research to me. --Ooswesthoesbes (talk) 16:44, 24 September 2017 (UTC)
Then move to Wikiversity?--Jusjih (talk) 02:44, 29 October 2017 (UTC)
Fine with me. Otherwise, split the historical fragments from the other text. --Ooswesthoesbes (talk) 13:35, 31 October 2017 (UTC)

January 2018[edit]


Unused after all English works have moved to English Wikisource, should we rename it to "PD-India-CWMG" per en:Template:PD-India-CWMG for any Gandhi's texts written in languages lacking separate Wikisource subdomains, or should we delete it?--Jusjih (talk) 18:19, 4 January 2018 (UTC)

I'd say, if we know we've got any of such texts, then we can model it after the template. --Ooswesthoesbes (talk) 10:17, 16 January 2018 (UTC)
We likely have. But IMO {{PD-US-1923-abroad}} should be rather used for them istead of this dedicated template. So I suggest to delete this unused one. Ankry (talk) 12:48, 5 April 2018 (UTC)

February 2018[edit]

Path grant[edit]

Move to English Wikisource?--Jusjih (talk) 05:55, 25 February 2018 (UTC)

That looks like the best option indeed. --Ooswesthoesbes (talk) 12:20, 25 February 2018 (UTC)
The text seems to exist already in Just without images. I suggest deletion. Ankry (talk) 12:10, 5 March 2018 (UTC)
[1] - [2] - The same user has added this page. --Ooswesthoesbes (talk) 09:18, 6 March 2018 (UTC)
Maybe delete here after adding images on English Wikisource?--Jusjih (talk) 05:45, 10 March 2018 (UTC)
I'm not familiar with policy on images, but that sounds like a very good idea :) --Ooswesthoesbes (talk) 09:27, 10 March 2018 (UTC)
en:Wikisource:Image guidelines.--Jusjih (talk) 01:39, 17 March 2018 (UTC)
Looks like they are allowed there. --Ooswesthoesbes (talk) 12:04, 17 March 2018 (UTC)

March 2018[edit]

A cup of coffee[edit]

Its author Ivan Cankar was Slovenian, so deleting it for uncertain translator may be the best as en:A Cup of Coffee already marks the translator.--Jusjih (talk) 05:06, 4 March 2018 (UTC)

I agree. --Ooswesthoesbes (talk) 11:41, 5 March 2018 (UTC)
Me also. English texts should not be stored here. Especially, if they not fit requirements. Ankry (talk) 12:06, 5 March 2018 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done --Ooswesthoesbes (talk) 09:17, 6 March 2018 (UTC)

ویکی ماخذ:ناول[edit]

Urdu text which does not look as a source text. No author, no source privided. Ankry (talk) 12:27, 5 March 2018 (UTC)

The user has reacted in Urdu on his talk page. Google Translate tells me: Pilates help me. I want to make a publication story, I do not own my own and neither I have taken permission from anyone. --Ooswesthoesbes (talk) 09:27, 6 March 2018 (UTC)
I asked at ur.wp for help and they suggested me that this may be a novel. But my random checks did not confirm that. I would suggest that this is more likely own work of the uploader; maybe appropriate for incubator of Urdu Wikibooks... Ankry (talk) 20:27, 7 March 2018 (UTC)
Wikibooks is meant for instructional books (learning books, manuals etc), not for novels. Novels and such should be placed on wikis like wikia. --Ooswesthoesbes (talk) 20:43, 7 March 2018 (UTC)
I propose to move it to a subpage for the user, so he can copy its contents if he wishes to keep it, and then we delete it. --Ooswesthoesbes (talk) 20:45, 7 March 2018 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done The user has had enough time to copy it. If he hasn't yet and still wishes to, the contents can easily be retrieved by an administrator. --Ooswesthoesbes (talk) 11:18, 22 March 2018 (UTC)

Wikisource:Completed texts[edit]

  • Seems to be an old project, never effectively started, and (IMO) useless after Wikisource split to subdomains. And even for texts stored here, it seems that per-language lists are preferred and better maintaned.
@John Vandenberg, -jkb-, Zyephyrus: pinging you as you started / supported start of this here, so your opinion(s) whether to keep this or delete is welcome. Ankry (talk) 14:08, 16 March 2018 (UTC)
Yep. I guess you can delete this. Kind regards, -jkb- (talk) 23:27, 16 March 2018 (UTC)
I agree. --Ooswesthoesbes (talk) 11:17, 22 March 2018 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done deletion.--Jusjih (talk) 22:24, 1 April 2018 (UTC)

Get Custom Research Paper Writing[edit]

It might not even be source text.--Jusjih (talk) 18:53, 21 March 2018 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done It's in a bad shape, unsourced, and most likely won't qualify our criteria anyway. --Ooswesthoesbes (talk) 11:19, 22 March 2018 (UTC)

Getonisa kastrati[edit]

Short and almost meaningless text in Albanian (you may see translation in Google Translate). Also -- no author and no license. --Nigmont (talk) 21:32, 31 March 2018 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done The fact that it was added by a single edit IP-address makes it very likely this is just spam. Therefore, I deleted it. --Ooswesthoesbes (talk) 14:05, 2 April 2018 (UTC)
