Hello JoJo, 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 held at 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) 04:38, 14 September 2008 (UTC)

Thai[edit]

We do not have a set of Thai works in Category:Works by original language. Also, Thai Wikisource needs help. See th:แม่แบบ:หัวเรื่อง. They also have a template th:แม่แบบ:เปิดหน้า. John Vandenberg (chat) 05:00, 5 October 2008 (UTC)

Thanks John. I just made SUL account there but I do not have a Thai keyboard. Maybe one day I will copy stuff over. JoJo (talk) 11:23, 5 October 2008 (UTC)

There is a lot that can be done here with your knowledge of the Thai language. :-)

Phleng Chat has some Thai text on it. If it is the same as th:เพลงชาติไทย, the Thai text can be removed from the English language page. Was Phleng Chat originally written in Thai? If so, we can put that page into a new Category:Works originally in Thai (I believe there are more than one Thai language?, so a more precise category name is probably required).

I have created Category:Thai authors. John Vandenberg (chat) 03:15, 6 October 2008 (UTC)

Thailand topical index[edit]

We do not have a page for Thailand on Wikisource:Texts by Country. Wikisource:Thailand would contain a list of any works that we have relating to "Thailand", and red links for any important texts that we should have. John Vandenberg (chat) 00:41, 6 October 2008 (UTC)

Hi John. I try to answer your questions.

  • [1] here in the box on the right it says "Thai wikipedia more info on Thai music".
    • 2482 is Thai Buddha year, 2482 is 1939, year it was made official.
    • Yes Pheleng Chat was written in Thai first. The translation is pretty good there.
    • There is only one Thai language, but it does have dialects--just like English. Some of the hill tribes have another language too, but that are not Thai.
Does that help? Let me or R know if you need more. JojoTalk 15:34, 12 October 2008 (UTC)

Thank you. I have created Category:Works originally in Thai and Wikisource:Thailand. John Vandenberg (chat) 03:06, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
