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.

September 2019[edit]


Not appropriate here; should be likely transferred to Commons but required source/copyright info is missing. @G.Musso: pinging the uploader for explanation or appropriate action. Ankry (talk) 20:09, 14 September 2019 (UTC)

So, how to proceed now? We still haven't got a reaction. @Ankry. --Ooswesthoesbes (talk) 07:04, 6 March 2020 (UTC)
@Ankry, Ooswesthoesbes: the source is obviously the page 201 of File:Bacigalô.Prose.rimæ.1891.pdf (already on Commons), same for copyright, so everything is ok on that part. For the technical part, I remember a tool to do this kind of move to Commons but I can't find it again... Cheers, VIGNERON (talk) 08:32, 6 March 2020 (UTC)
@VIGNERON: Export to Commons requires adding the Information template and a license template. Ankry (talk) 10:03, 6 March 2020 (UTC) Ankry (talk) 10:03, 6 March 2020 (UTC)
@Ankry: true, I copied-pasted the infos. What tool do you use? Cheers, VIGNERON (talk) 15:51, 14 March 2020 (UTC)
@VIGNERON: Just the "export to Wikimedia Commons" tab on the file description page; I do not think that I had to enable any feature. Ankry (talk) 16:12, 14 March 2020 (UTC)

October 2019[edit]

Republic Act No. 7104[edit]

Move to English Wikisource? I have not checked the source nor how it is copyrighted in the Philippines.--Jusjih (talk) 02:22, 11 October 2019 (UTC)

Not sure about the copyright status (does PD-Gov exist and apply in the Philippines? apparently yes, if I read correctly commons:Commons:Copyright rules by territory/Philippines). That said, the text can be found on multiple website who can serve a source, here or here for instance. Cheers, VIGNERON (talk) 08:44, 7 February 2020 (UTC)
So, what are we going to do about this one? @Jusjih/VIGNERON. --Ooswesthoesbes (talk) 07:05, 6 March 2020 (UTC)
Move to (did someone ask them there?) or deletion, either are fine for me. Cheers, VIGNERON (talk) 08:34, 6 March 2020 (UTC)
Moved to en:Republic Act No. 7104 after checking commons:Commons:Copyright_rules_by_territory/Philippines.--Jusjih (talk) 04:16, 25 April 2020 (UTC)

Index:Basile - Lu cunto de li cunti, Vol.I.djvu[edit]

Volume already transferred on it.source: Indice:Basile - Lu cunto de li cunti, Vol.I.djvu Thanks --Ruthven (talk) 17:10, 13 October 2019 (UTC)

January 2020[edit]


It's vanity autobiography which the user has brought over from enwiki after several attempts there. The author User:Itsmywayokok appears to be a sockpuppet of User:Sunnydevanand who has also edited as User:Sunnydevanand 1. Cabayi (talk) 11:31, 13 January 2020 (UTC)

  • Deleted once on 7 January 2020 by Zyephyrus (talkcontribs), deleted again today. I protected against recreation for a year, no more action needed for now I guess. Thanks Cabayi (talkcontribs) for noticing this. Cheers, VIGNERON (talk) 12:21, 13 January 2020 (UTC)


Imported to Commons -- Jimregan (talk) 21:42, 17 January 2020 (UTC)

Сунгурова Раисия - Эргым мала (RUS)[edit]

The text is in Russian. It should rather go to Russian Wikisource, not here. I also doubt that it is free, however: no evidence of CC-BY-SA compatible license, author is a living person... Ankry (talk) 19:55, 22 January 2020 (UTC)

@Ankry: indeed it's seems that there is a copyright issue but the account Раисия Сунгурова seems to be the author itself. We still need some proof (either of the identity of the account and/or of the free license of the text, both through OTRS ideally) but let's not rush into deletion too quickly. Can you contact her and get more details? PS: other contributions of this account are under the same case (this one is in Russian, the others seems to be in Mari). Cheers, VIGNERON (talk) 20:17, 22 January 2020 (UTC)
@VIGNERON: I tried, and I get no respond. Neverless, this one text is in Russian, so out of our scope. Ankry (talk) 20:21, 22 January 2020 (UTC)
I didn’t saw it but I see now. I see that there is an email adress, maybe one last chance to get an answer? Otherwise, then yes, delete all the texts (as the copyright issue is the same for all these texts). Cheers, VIGNERON (talk) 20:38, 22 January 2020 (UTC)
@VIGNERON: I emailed, but no response for 2 weeks. Ankry (talk) 22:56, 6 February 2020 (UTC)
@Ankry: then delete, any oppositions to delete all text imported by this user? Cheers, VIGNERON (talk) 07:59, 7 February 2020 (UTC)
@VIGNERON: I agree, that they should likely be deleted until an OTRS permission is received. Ankry (talk) 08:04, 7 February 2020 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done for the records, I deleted these pages:
Сунгурова Раисия - Пушеҥге лийын шочына
Сунгурова Раисия - Колымаш кожлаште
Сунгурова Раисия - Кодын
Сунгурова Раисия - Чаманалза пӧръеҥым
Сунгурова Раисия - Наҥгаем ыле тыйым Прагыш…
Сунгурова Раисия - Айдемылан кӱлеш айдеме
Сунгурова Раисия - Кумалам
Сунгурова Раисия - Эргым мала (RUS)
Сунгурова Раисия - Эргым мала
And yes, obviously a clear authorisation (OTRS or otherwise) would lead to undeletion.

Author:Max Planck, Author:Walter Kaufmann, Author:Emil Cohn[edit]

Empty author pages; the content has been moved few months ago to dewikisource. As they are German authors, it is highly unlikely that any (non-German) works in language with no own domains appears here. Ankry (talk) 21:48, 23 January 2020 (UTC)

Deleted all three as all significant users have blanked the pages.--Jusjih (talk) 04:39, 3 February 2020 (UTC)

February 2020[edit]

Riga Climate Normals 1961–1990[edit]

Some unsourced data, likely out of scope. But reporting here if somebody has another opinion. And @Laurijs: FYI. Ankry (talk) 22:59, 6 February 2020 (UTC)

Not sure for the scope (everything published is ok to me) but clearly we need a source. I left a message on lv.wp to this user. Cheers, VIGNERON (talk) 08:03, 7 February 2020 (UTC)
It's a grey area. In the current form it can't stay (unsourced and no layout, it looks messy). --Ooswesthoesbes (talk) 08:04, 10 February 2020 (UTC)

A month has passed without a reaction, so I go ahead and delete it. In case it is deemed later on that it is within scope, it can always be restored, providing the lay-out is altered. --Ooswesthoesbes (talk) 07:07, 6 March 2020 (UTC)

सप्त्श्लोकी दुर्गा[edit]

Text in Marathi, rather not appropriate here. I asked the Marathi Wikisource community for help. Ankry (talk) 23:26, 6 February 2020 (UTC)

I pinged an active contributor. However, judging from the absence of administrators and user talk pages, I think they don't really communicate... --Ooswesthoesbes (talk) 07:10, 6 March 2020 (UTC)
@QueerEcofeminist: could you take a look? VIGNERON (talk) 08:37, 6 March 2020 (UTC)
@Ankry, VIGNERON:, there are many texts like this, which were copypasted by random users without any information on the source and just to keep their work it was kept back on mrwiki or brought to source in incubation or when the mrsource domain was launched. Which should be deleted ideally as there is no source and its very difficult to find the source too. Additional info : This particular page is recent creation and its in Sanskrit and not in Marathi :P --QueerEcofeminist (talk) 09:15, 6 March 2020 (UTC)
Basing on this, I suggest to delete the text as unsourced, so out of scope. Ankry (talk) 10:00, 6 March 2020 (UTC)
