Hello, Apcbg, welcome to Wikisource! Thanks for your interest in the project; we hope you'll enjoy the community and your work here.

You'll find an (incomplete) index of our works listed at Wikisource:Works, although for very broad categories like poetry you may wish to look at the categories like Category:Poems instead.

Please take a glance at our help pages (especially Adding texts and Wikisource's style guide). Most questions and discussions about the community are in the Scriptorium.

The Community Portal lists tasks you can help with if you wish. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me on my talk page! John Vandenberg (chat) 00:07, 15 April 2008 (UTC)

Bulgarian Policies on the Republic of Macedonia[edit]

Do you have evidence that this work has been released under a CC license? John Vandenberg (chat) 00:09, 15 April 2008 (UTC)

That is explicitly declared on Page 2 of the book, an image of which is now reproduced in the article. Hope this suffices. Apcbg 08:21, 15 April 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for pointing that out.
The other requirement is that the book is not self-published. It certainly doesnt appear that way, and we have an article on Wikipedia for w:Manfred Wörner Foundation, however I cant find ISBN 978-954-92032-2-6 in any of the usual online databases. Can you find this book in a European state or university library?
Alternatively, we need to know who "NI Plus Publishing House" is; if they are a major publisher in the region, and do review books before they are published, then there is no problem. John Vandenberg (chat) 11:56, 16 April 2008 (UTC)
The book was published on March 31, 2008 with several mandatory copies of it deposited in the National Library Sts. Cyril and Methodius in Sofia, which had issued the relevant ISBN number. Publisher of the book is the Manfred Wörner Foundation not NI Plus, the latter did the printing only. Apparently the book got plenty of reviewing and comments in the press; in particular one may find articles on the book itself and on its public presentation held on March 31 in a number of Bulgarian and Macedonian newspapers, e.g. (1), (2), (3), (4), (5), (6) and (7).

Great; thank you. John Vandenberg (chat) 05:36, 19 April 2008 (UTC)

Use of {{ref}} with {{note}} and <ref> tags[edit]

Just saw your edit to Toponymic Guidelines for Antarctica and thought that it might be worth drawing your attention to a couple of options for footnotes and references.

  • {{ref}} with {{note}} allow you to place a marker and the text through a document as required
  • <ref>text</ref> allows general placement with use of either <references /> or {{smallrefs}}

Also, with your placement of text, we do have a couple of specific classes that can be used to help format text.

  • <poem>which allows the format of text with leading spaces
  • <div class="lefttext">text</div> formats to left hand side
  • <div class="prose">text</div> formats in a wide centred column

You are welcome to play, or I can find some pages that utilise that formatting if you prefer. This often makes it easier than having to tab in with colons. Enjoy! :-) -- billinghurst (talk) 06:15, 30 March 2009 (UTC)

Dear Billinghurst, many thanks for your advice that I'd be happy to make use of, need some time to exercise though. Best, Apcbg (talk) 15:46, 31 March 2009 (UTC)
