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.

January 2019[edit]


Hi! i replaced File:Gazzo.divina.comedia.1909.pdf with a djvu, thanks! G.Musso (talk)

Yes check.svg Done. BTW, @G.Musso: any reason to keep the file here and not in Commons? It seems to me to be PD-old/PD-1923. However, having the commons-like {{Information}} template would simplify the transfer. Ankry (talk) 09:34, 1 January 2019 (UTC)

April 2019[edit]

pages in Category:ਪੰਜਾਬੀ[edit]

As is already active and fully autonomic, I think all pages from this category may be deleted. @Satdeep Gill: is anything thre still needed? Ankry (talk) 19:43, 23 April 2019 (UTC)

@Satdeep Gill: and some pages of Index:Dharami Soorma.pdf seem to have higher proofread status here than in Maybe they need to be imported? Ankry (talk) 11:09, 8 May 2019 (UTC)
@Ankry: I am happy to delete it from here. I checked one page and I have to proofread it once again. Some spellings still remain even though they are marked validated here. So, yes. Let's go ahead with deleting the book from multilingual wiki. --Satdeep Gill (talk) 16:25, 8 May 2019 (UTC)

May 2019[edit]

Thank you. I have deleted the pages :) --Ooswesthoesbes (talk) 08:21, 8 May 2019 (UTC)

File:G.Salvi-Galeotto I del Carretto-1937.pdf[edit]

False copyright info: a 1937 book claimed to be pre-1924. If the file is not suitable for Commons for any reason, it is not suitable to be stored here also. @G.Musso: pinging the uploader for explanation. Ankry (talk) 20:06, 14 September 2019 (UTC)

Hi, tried to improve summary and correct copyright template, the file is freely available at and being part of a periodical publication of collective work, by italian law copyright expires 70 years after its publication. thanks. G.Musso (talk)
@Ankry, G.Musso: indded collective work is in the public domain 70 years after publication. Could you provide the exact link where it comes from on to check the license ? and if everything is correct then it should be moved to Commons (with the correct template commons:Template:PD-collective-work). Cheers, VIGNERON (talk) 08:38, 15 September 2019 (UTC)
great, that's the tag i was looking for. the exact page is thanks G.Musso (talk)
@G.Musso: Italian copyright is generally irrelevant here. The file should be PD in US. For 1937 Italian publication you need to prove that it was (either) published in US in 30 days after Italian publication (without copyright notice in this case) or was PD in Italy on 1.1.1996. Ankry (talk) 08:45, 15 September 2019 (UTC)
in this case, just delete it, i guess. cheers! G.Musso (talk)
@G.Musso: In 1996 Italy had a general rule 50pma + wartime extension (so effectively likely 56pma, see here). However, I cannot recognize what rule applied to collective works then: 50 (56?) post publication. (1937+56=1993 < 1996) But neverless, it should just go to Commons if PD in Italy. Ankry (talk) 09:41, 15 September 2019 (UTC)
@VIGNERON: I think the template is useless here: files that are PD in the country of origin should go to Commons, and it does not apply (at least until 2048) for US copyright. Ankry (talk) 09:45, 15 September 2019 (UTC)
Deleted on 16 September 2019 by Ankry as on Commons.--Jusjih (talk) 02:44, 3 October 2019 (UTC)


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)

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)

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)
