About long poems[edit]

Hello everyone and happy new year. This is my first time coming to Wikisource. Wanna say, it's really nice here.

If I do edit, I'll be editing Georgian entries/poems, so I have a few questions on formatting and especially on long poems. Right now დავითიანი exists as a page written in Latin script. Itself, it's a long poem consisting of different chapters and one of the chapters is ALREADY separated as another page სწავლა მოსწავლეთა, which I just recently filled. So, uhm, what would be the best:

  1. delete სწავლა მოსწავლეთა and keep დავითიანი to renew it
  2. delete დავითიანი and add all chapters separately.

Another question is, if we choose the second option, should we like create a category called დავითიანი under დავით გურამიშვილის პოემები (poems of davit guramishvili) and have all chapters there?

Thank you in advance :D -Solarkoid (talk) 15:56, 3 January 2021 (UTC)

As far as I can see we have a georgian section here, see Category:Georgian. Try to find somebody there and discuss this problem with him/her. If there is something to be deleted so mark the page with {{delete}} + reason, no problem for me or for my colleagues to do so. Cheers -jkb- (talk) 21:57, 3 January 2021 (UTC)

Advanced Search "Pages in this language" is not working as described[edit]

Hi, I tried a simple Advanced Search of "automobile" and then selected "English" from the drop down on Pages in this language. But the search results still show source texts in other languages that are not English. I noticed the Info icon next to the Pages in this language that describes how it should work, but it doesn't work as described. --Thadguidry (talk) 20:07, 9 January 2021 (UTC)

@Thadguidry: This is a great point. There is a problem here with data integrity and I've fixed a few hundred pages but there are tens of thousands left to go. The problem is, if you go to any page (e.g. Page:Ag séideadh agus ag ithe - Ua Laoghaire.djvu/24), you can see page information (in this case: https://wikisource.org/w/index.php?title=Page:Ag_s%C3%A9ideadh_agus_ag_ithe_-_Ua_Laoghaire.djvu/24&action=info) and one of the pieces of info stored here is the language (in this case, it's correct: "ga - Irish"). So when you are using the search by language feature, the MediaWiki software should only be searching pages that have the correct language. Unfortunately, since the default is English, unless someone deliberately changes a given page's information to another language, then many English-language pages will show up flooding results. E.g. Әкеміз was in "en - English" until just now, when I changed it to "kk - Kazakh".Justin (koavf)TCM 23:58, 9 January 2021 (UTC)
To be more clear, I initiated the Advanced Search from the regular domain Wikisource URL. I did not initiate the search from the English subdomain Wikisource URL. By the way, I keep getting an error when I try to include URL's in my posting and replies here. It keeps saying I'm a new user or something and is treating them as external URL's and SPAM so I cannot give you the URL's I'm using to help. (Help Admin?) --Thadguidry (talk) 01:38, 10 January 2021 (UTC)
@Thadguidry: Yes, I understood that you were searching this edition of Wikisource and not en:. Unfortunately, admins can't unilaterally make you able to be able to post links (without editing the edit filter itself): you'll have to make [x] edits and be a member here for [y] days in order for that restriction to be lifted. —Justin (koavf)TCM 01:46, 10 January 2021 (UTC)
So what are your next steps to resolve the search filtering problem? Or is this some mass corrections that need to be made to tens of thousands of pages and is really the only proper way to fix it? I.E. is it simply a problem because some users made pages in some wrong language category? --Thadguidry (talk) 02:00, 10 January 2021 (UTC)
Mass corrections. The problem is that persons made pages not in the wrong language as such but that the new pages weren't marked with a language and that default is English. Search in a non-English language and you are liable to get better results but they will be incomplete and missing all of the pages that aren't properly marked. —Justin (koavf)TCM 02:40, 10 January 2021 (UTC)

MediaWiki:Sp-contributions-footer[edit]

Can somebody tell me why the MediaWiki:Sp-contributions-footer (and MediaWiki:Sp-contributions-footer-anon) do not work? We have both since years. -jkb- (talk) 20:45, 12 January 2021 (UTC)

@-jkb-: Not sure what you mean. When I go to Special:Contributions/-jkb-, I see that footer displayed. —Justin (koavf)TCM 08:19, 14 January 2021 (UTC)
I wonder what is wrong. When I see the contribution pages (both registered user and IPs) I don't see it. When I go to other projects (either wikisource or wikipedie) everything is OK. As far as I can see I have no sdcripts here that could influence this... -jkb- (talk) 15:05, 14 January 2021 (UTC)

MediaWiki Wikisource extension installation[edit]

Hi! The MediaWiki Wikisource extension is installed on all language-based Wikisources but not on old Wikisource. This extension now contains code to link to Wsexport in the MediaWiki navigation sidebar. So, it might make sense to install it here too in order to replace the current wsexport gadget. Is there anyone who has concerns about it? Tpt (talk) 20:31, 20 January 2021 (UTC)

While silence is approval, I don't like it when no one responds to good faith questions like this. So to chime in: I don't have concerns and I don't see any reason why this edition of Wikisource would be exempt. —Justin (koavf)TCM 22:14, 20 January 2021 (UTC)
Honestly, I have no Idea what the extension could be :-); if people, who can judge it, have no objections, so do I. -jkb- (talk) 23:04, 20 January 2021 (UTC)

Wikidata links are here![edit]

Following from #On WIkidata links, it is now possibile to link Wikidata items to pages on this site, finally! Many thanks to the people who made this possible.

Links can be added in the "Multilingual sites" box (not the "Wikisource" box), by typing "s" for "sources" or "m" for "multilingual wikisource" (example).

Previously, we used Template:Interwiki to simulate a link; this template should no longer be used. On pages that use it, we need to add the link on Wikidata and then remove the template, I will start doing it but help is welcome. Candalua (talk) 08:30, 24 February 2021 (UTC)

Import Fantasia original from enWS[edit]

Hi,

Fantasia original has been determined to be out of scope for English Wikisource since it contains no English text (it is mainly musical notation in LilyPond with some Italian text), but provided I've understood correctly it should be within scope for mulWS. Could someone with +sysop please import it here? --Xover (talk) 14:26, 18 March 2021 (UTC)

Well, I see no text there at all. Do we allow such musical notations here? Just a question. -jkb- (talk) 13:02, 19 March 2021 (UTC)
@-jkb-: There is arguably some Italian there (the counter would be that it's strictly speaking musical notation that happens to use terms borrowed from Italian rather than Italian as such). But my assumption was that music-as-a-sort-of-language was within scope for mulWS, cf. Category:Zxx (No linguistic content). --Xover (talk) 08:06, 20 March 2021 (UTC)
Here are musical categories on multi.ws. Does it belong to one of them? --Zyephyrus (talk) 22:06, 20 March 2021 (UTC)
Yep, I know those categories. But: all pages in them are articles (i.e. text articles) about music. The page that should be importet has no text. I'm no musician, but the text are the common "instructions" how the music should be played. No text. If we would agree to import it we should first make an exemption on the page about the scope of this project - in ...This site is a repository of source texts .... Difficult. More oppinions? -jkb- (talk) 22:55, 20 March 2021 (UTC)
N. B. Well, yes we have such pages in Category:Zxx (No linguistic content), that is right. My question is if it is right. That's all. -jkb- (talk) 22:58, 20 March 2021 (UTC)
There is some italian instructions not for Italian locutors but for musicians from all languages, so I think these musical notations have their place on multi-ws. Don't you think so? --Zyephyrus (talk) 21:40, 23 March 2021 (UTC)
Correctly: it is a musical notation with (short) instructions, mostly in italian, but not every time; more over, and this is important for me, it is no text in the meaning of what is the scope of Wikisource. If somebody will to keep such pages he should better apply for a new WMF project for musical notations. My 2 cents. -jkb- (talk) 22:56, 23 March 2021 (UTC)
And, it is unsourced and unlicensed; by the way, the notation is by José Viñas, a spanish componist, so if, the it could be kept in the es.wikisource as well (I don't think so...). -jkb- (talk) 23:05, 23 March 2021 (UTC)
FWIW, I agree with -jkb- that the textual content there is negligible. In my opinion, the only sensible thing to do is to treat it as primarily music notation and then ask the question: "Is music notation within scope for mulWS?"

Incidentally, it is definitely out of scope for enWS and the minimum discussion period for the proposed deletion there expired long ago (IOW, it could get deleted there at any time). If there is any reasonable chance it could end up as being determined to be within scope here it would be good to import it temporarily and then rather delete it if it is determined to be outside scope. If it doesn't fit at mulWS there is no other Wikimedia project that will have it. --Xover (talk) 20:49, 25 March 2021 (UTC)

Non-linguistic texts belong here and we already have musical texts. I'll import it. —Justin (koavf)TCM 07:18, 26 March 2021 (UTC)

Universal Code of Conduct – 2021 consultations[edit]

Universal Code of Conduct Phase 2[edit]

Please help translate to your language

The Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC) provides a universal baseline of acceptable behavior for the entire Wikimedia movement and all its projects. The project is currently in Phase 2, outlining clear enforcement pathways. You can read more about the whole project on its project page.

Drafting Committee: Call for applications[edit]

The Wikimedia Foundation is recruiting volunteers to join a committee to draft how to make the code enforceable. Volunteers on the committee will commit between 2 and 6 hours per week from late April through July and again in October and November. It is important that the committee be diverse and inclusive, and have a range of experiences, including both experienced users and newcomers, and those who have received or responded to, as well as those who have been falsely accused of harassment.

To apply and learn more about the process, see Universal Code of Conduct/Drafting committee.

2021 community consultations: Notice and call for volunteers / translators[edit]

From 5 April – 5 May 2021 there will be conversations on many Wikimedia projects about how to enforce the UCoC. We are looking for volunteers to translate key material, as well as to help host consultations on their own languages or projects using suggested key questions. If you are interested in volunteering for either of these roles, please contact us in whatever language you are most comfortable.

To learn more about this work and other conversations taking place, see Universal Code of Conduct/2021 consultations.

Looking for (ancient) Armenian speakers to help transcribe a text on Wikisource[edit]

Recently the French Wikisource community started to work on the transcription of Grammaire de Denys de Thrace. So far you might wonder what the relation with Armenian speakers? Have a look to the full title instead:

GRAMMAIRE de DENIS DE THRACE, tirée de deux manuscrits arméniens de la bibliothèque du roi. Publiée en Grec, en Arménien et en Français, et précédée de considérations générales sur la formation progressive de la Science glossologique chez les anciens, et de quelques détails historiques sur Denis, sur son ouvrage et sur ses commentateurs ; PAR M. CIRBIED, membre de la société royale des antiquaires de france, professeur d’arménien à la bibliothèque du roi. extrait des mémoires de la dite société.

That's a bombastic title if you want my opinion. 😂 However it gives a good overview of what it contains. Especially, it make transparent that the book includes a huge load of material in Armenian. So the text is basically translation and comments of a text in Armenian, itself a translation of an ancient Greek text - also provided in the book. As the French Wikisource community has limited skills on Armenian, it makes the work of transcription far more complicated. Thus this call.

We are looking for people able to make transcriptions of text in Armenian alphabet. It would be even better if we could find people with ancient Armenian, since it is expectable that the text will likely contain oddity of the past. And if we can find someone who can moreover speak French or English to interact in discussions with the community, it would be perfect. Note that the main requirement is simply being able to read Armenian alphabet and to write it in simple Unicode transcription. In particular, there is no expectation that the potential helpers would make any work on the formatting that often require to deal with locale templates.

Please be bold in spreading the word wherever you think that could reach potentially interested Armenian speakers.

Hello, @Psychoslave: I think, if you really want to find Armenian speakers (either for modern or for ancient Armenian) who might help you and your comrades on this task, then you should also create analogous topic in those Wikimedia projects where to find native Armenian speakers is expected to be more likely than here, that is — on Armenian-language projects. I think, you should consider creating similar topics on those projects:

Japanese vandalism[edit]

Since about march 2021 tehre are some IPs vandaling this site by creating pages with nonsense and not appropriate content (might be some 200 pages up to now). An overview see User:-jkb-/check. I'm not sure how to proceed this. Global block is a nonsense as it would effect other japanese projects as well. A renge block here et oldwikisource: I'm afraid the range is too big, otherwise as there is a japanese wikisource it wouldn't be such a great problem. Othewise we can block the IPs one by one just like I did up to now. What is your oppinion? -jkb- (talk) 16:17, 30 April 2021 (UTC)
