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.

August 2021[edit]

File:Progreso - 8a yaro.pdf[edit]

This file contains 2 volumes of the periodical 'Progreso'. I think it should be deleted and the volumes added separetely with their original names (Tomo VIII and Tomo IX instead of 8a Yaro).

Also I’m not sure of the copyright status. The volumes were not published in 1908 as mentioned in the description of the file, but in 1931 and 1932. Rosacentifolia (talk) 17:08, 1 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

If there is a reason to split the file, anyone is free to do it. Also, feel free to fix the description if necessary. Copyright doubts may be a reason for deletion by they need to be raised more precisely. Ankry (talk) 17:25, 1 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hi, not sure how to handle this. Is there a way to split the existing file ? Or should I re-upload a split version of it ?
The only infos I have regarding the copyright are the publishing dates written on the covers, 1931 and 1932, and the year of death of some of the contributors : 1969 for S. Bakonyi, 1999 for A. Matejka. I don't know if that’s enough to prove copyright infringement. Rosacentifolia (talk) 21:43, 1 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Ee Grasse Widdowes Zorrow[edit]

Tagged by QueerEcofeminist (talkcontribs) as a test page; I have no opinion myself. Eviolite (talk) 17:54, 24 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Eviolite: QueerEcofeminist (talkcontribs) Not a test page, objecting per reason stated. Language conservation is vital for this language at this stage of revival, so I am uploading text documents and poems in the language that are of notoriety in the community. I plan to upload a photo of the source document as well when I can be sure that it wont be erased.unsigned comment by MichaelDMelvin23 (talk) .

I think it's high value to keep minority language material. We really need a source for this, tho. What am I even seeing here? Can someone provide an author and a source? —Justin (koavf)TCM 16:59, 25 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@-jkb-: Kovaf (talkcontribs) This document, Ee Grasse Widdowes Sorrow is a folk tale passed down for generations and thus the author is unknown, however this specific edition is copied down from a contemporary source during the languages’ use, found in a private collection. It also appears to have been edited at a later date to fix spelling errors. Is there somewhere I should upload a picture of the source document? unsigned comment by MichaelDMelvin23 (talk) . @Koavf: -jkb- (talk) 18:13, 28 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@MichaelDMelvin23: Thanks. Yes, please do upload a copy of a scan to Commons if that scan is in the public domain or has a free license in the United States and its home country. If it's only in America, upload it here. If you need help, please let me know. Also, the {{ping}} tool only works if you sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~). Very much looking forward to this edition of this folk tale. —Justin (koavf)TCM 22:10, 28 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@-jkb- @Koavf @QueerEcofeminist Uploaded! The document is in the public domain by many many years lol. However I did mistitle the file name, thats okay though, should have "Widdowés Zorrow" instead of "Widdows Sorrow". MichaelDMelvin23 (talk) 21:31, 1 March 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@MichaelDMelvin23: Nice. I renamed the file. Thanks. —Justin (koavf)TCM 22:10, 1 March 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@MichaelDMelvin23, I think issue is resolved now. My issue was unsourced material. Now that we have a source to tally the content. I see no issues. Thanks and regards. QueerEcofeminist (talk) 01:55, 2 March 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

There are about 20 new pages in the last days posted here by an IP from Thailand, see contributions No necessary information such as author, license, where first published and when, language etc. I'm going to add the delete template to every page now, and I think we'll be able to delete it soon.

I accidentally made it Hoofstuk_1 (Chapter 1), but it should be with a Roman numeral. The one with the Roman numeral already exists.
I'm not completely done with the book yet, there's still the bibliography, and then the scanned images (in the public domain) to be added on WikiCommons.
