Ticks after titles of plays[edit]

What do the ticks mean? John Vandenberg (chat) 22:28, 27 January 2008 (UTC)

I was wondering that myself! Cowardly Lion 22:49, 27 January 2008 (UTC)
Pbarnes (talkcontribs) created this page; sadly the user doesnt have email enabled here or on Wikipedia, but has been active over there as recently as August 2007 (w:Special:Contributions/Pbarnes). Do you want to drop him a talk message here and there? John Vandenberg (chat) 23:29, 27 January 2008 (UTC)
Yes, I'll do that tomorrow. Cowardly Lion 00:13, 28 January 2008 (UTC)
Done,[1] [2] though it wasn't quite "tomorrow" when I did it. Let's hope s/he logs on and sees the message on one of the pages. Cowardly Lion 22:45, 30 January 2008 (UTC)
No sign of Pbarnes logging on, but I've found the answer anyway at the Wikipedia article. The ticks are for the plays that had not been previously published. Cowardly Lion 19:00, 3 February 2008 (UTC)

Actual First Folio text?[edit]

It seems inconsistent (or at the very least, confusing) to link to plays written in modern words but not written by the First Folio, which is the subject here. Don't you think? I'm actually quite surprised that I cannot find anything, anywhere on wikimedia that actually contains the First Folio text. Shouldn't it be here somewhere?

The First Folio text is being worked on at Index:Shakespeare - First Folio Faithfully Reproduced, Methuen, 1910.djvu. Beeswaxcandle (talk) 06:50, 11 October 2011 (UTC)
