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]
I tried to google it but had no success. -jkb- (talk) 20:36, 27 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]
thx as well!! -jkb- (talk) 08:08, 2 March 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

License information is necessary to kanji annotation. Original annotator may be 外間守善(1924-2012). if he is annotator, licence is not lapsed yet. P9iKC7B1SaKk (talk) 12:34, 6 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@MathXplore: - Hello! As this is a Japanese text on Multilingual Wikisource, can you confirm if this is out of copyright to be kept on Japanese Wikisource or if it is likely under copyright? -- Satdeep Gill (talk) 07:19, 26 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
In Japan, copyright protection will be given for 70 years after the author's death (Agency for cultural affairs, Japanese Government). So if the annotator is going to be counted as the author, this content cannot be public domain. To make the discussion easier, I think the author must be identified.

Please delete Tepuk Amai-Amai. Those page only contained random words that did not even clear what's the purpose, possibly a vandal edit. (SecureWikis (talk) 07:52, 20 September 2023 (UTC))Reply[reply]

Done It may have had some meaningful content, but there's no copyright info or even an idea of what the language is. —Justin (koavf)TCM 08:01, 20 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
