Hello Kathleen.wright5, 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!—Zhaladshar (Talk) 13:51, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

Hi Kathleen, it's nice to put a name to all the good edits, and it is great to see renewed interest in the Easton's project. John Vandenberg (chat) 09:30, 11 July 2008 (UTC)

Questions[edit]

Hi,

Yes, I'd send the former to WS:DEL, since the proofs for God's existence are definitely part of the Pensees; there's no need to have them on another page.

And in response to your first question, all a bureaucrat does is make users into sysops/bureaucrats, rename users, and assign bot flags to accounts.—Zhaladshar (Talk) 17:40, 10 July 2008 (UTC)

Dead sea scrolls[edit]

That's a tricky one. I'd say remove all the Korean text and then clean up the English text so that it looks like just one document. Right now, it looks like it's got both a Korean and an English translation. Of course, I have no idea how accurate the document will be without the Korean text (maybe the Korean contains portions of the scroll that isn't in English yet).—Zhaladshar (Talk) 13:35, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

Categories[edit]

Hi,

I disagree with the way you are tagging and categorising subpages.

Firstly, I don't agree with adding {{PD-old}} to subpages like Flora Australiensis/Volume V/Addendum; it suffices to template Flora Australiensis and leave it at that.

Secondly, here you add Category:Incomplete texts without a source to Flora Australiensis/Volume V/Addendum. The entire text may be incomplete, but that subpage is complete. Either you're marking the entire text as incomplete, in which case marking Flora Australiensis/Volume 5 suffices; or you're marking that particular subpage as incomplete, in which case you are wrong. I can't see any merit in marking incomplete every single subpage of an incomplete text, even the complete ones. All that does is overpopulate the category, thus obfuscating what is complete and what is not.

Template messages[edit]

Hi Kat! I see you've worked extensively at cleaning up Wikisource:Template messages. I'd suggest including a small description after each template link (at least for the licensing templates), so users don't have to access all those pages looking for the right template. I've been on here for 6 months, and I don't know any templates memory besides PD-old and PD-70! :) Thanks, - Mtmelendez 17:17, 17 July 2008 (UTC)

{{PD-old}}[edit]

Hello,

Could you please replace {{PD-old}} by {{PD-1923}} instead of removing the template? Thanks, Yann 07:59, 19 July 2008 (UTC)

Ok, thanks for your answer. I have asked Hesperian some precisions about this. Thanks, Yann 10:45, 19 July 2008 (UTC)

great work[edit]

You are doing a great job. If you do some work on proofreading, such as WS:PotM, I reckon you are ready to be given the mop around here. John Vandenberg (chat) 23:47, 20 July 2008 (UTC)

No worries. We need more admins! hint, hint :-) John Vandenberg (chat) 12:37, 22 July 2008 (UTC)
You are doing a great job, and I can understand that you want to finish that task before moving on to another. I have commented on PG-au. John Vandenberg (chat) 12:50, 22 July 2008 (UTC)

categorizing subpages[edit]

Hi,

I noticed you've been categorizing subpages of Discoveries in Australia. However, convention is not to categorize these pages because they "inherit" the property from the parent page. And it also keeps the categories cleaner because most people won't be searching for when chapter 3 of volume 1 of a work was published, but rather when the actual work itself was.—Zhaladshar (Talk) 14:14, 22 July 2008 (UTC)

You are still adding categories to sup-pages, like The suppressed Gospels and Epistles of the original New Testament of Jesus the Christ/Chapter 23. We do not categorise subpages unless the category doesnt apply to the entire work. It is very very rare that we want pages containing a "/" to have a category. Please discuss if you are unsure. John Vandenberg (chat) 13:46, 28 July 2008 (UTC)
In addition to rolling back your changes to these to sets of subpages, I have deleted Category:Discoveries in Australia and Category:Two expeditions into the interior of Southern Australia as we dont create categories to contain all pages within a work, except in rare situations such as Encyclopedia. Also, all subpages can be reached via Prefixindex; e.g. Special:Prefixindex/Two expeditions into the interior of Southern Australia.
Also I've commented at Talk:Transwiki:Constitution of Republika Srpska.
Finally, I see you have been doing a lot of repetitive work, like removing PD-old from pages that didnt need it. We have bots that can do this very quickly; feel free to make requests at WS:BOTR. If it is too hard to a bot to do, we will simply say so.
I've gone back through most of your contributions, and they are looking good except the ones I have reverted. I tried to be careful not to remove good edits that were intermingled with the additions of the cats. You've been doing a great job, and I am sorry we havent more documentation in place to assist new users like yourself who ramp up quickly into administration type edits. I hope you are not discouraged by this. John Vandenberg (chat) 14:35, 28 July 2008 (UTC)
I have reverted this, as that page is a subpage, and shouldnt be categorised into Category:2004 works as the entire work was published in 2004. CIA World Fact Book, 2004 is already in Category:2004 works. --John Vandenberg (chat) 00:12, 19 August 2008 (UTC)

proofreading[edit]

Good to see you have started on the proofreading, with gusto. Please see Index talk:Wind in the Willows (1913).djvu, esp. in regards to replacing the single quotes with double quotes. If you are unsure on anything, ask on that talk page. John Vandenberg (chat) 11:27, 23 July 2008 (UTC)

But please dont worry about correcting the pages you have already done. Someone else will need to verify them, and the quotes can be fixed then. John Vandenberg (chat) 11:30, 23 July 2008 (UTC)

EBD Articles[edit]

Take a look at this:

I think all we have to do is intercut the content with the headers, paste them into pages, and add more links if you want. What to do think? --Carlaude 00:20, 31 July 2008 (UTC)

Brundtland Report[edit]

Hello,

Why did you remove the Category:United Nations from this work? I don't see the point of having Category:Reports by the World Commission on Environment and Development, as this commission has only published one report, and doesn't exist anymore. Regards, Yann 10:22, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

Thanks, also for proofreading this work. It is in my TODO list for a long time... Yann 10:39, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

Index:Goody Two-Shoes (1881).djvu[edit]

Thanks for proofreading some of the pages, ut there is a problem. As you saw, I marked some of them as problematic. This is because in words like "muft" (must) there is in f, instead of the correct ſ (long s). diego_pmc 05:57, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

redundant pages[edit]

You deleted On the Westminster Confession of Faith as redundant; which page is it redundant to? I cant see the duplicate.

See also Wikisource:Scriptorium#CSD_G4 where I am proposing that G4 be dropped from our CSD list. I've been meaning to propose this for a while; your use of it only reminded me to do so. John Vandenberg (chat) 05:29, 23 August 2008 (UTC)

OK. Great detective work! Should Westminster Confession of Faith be mentioned on Author:Archibald Alexander Hodge ? John Vandenberg (chat) 05:52, 23 August 2008 (UTC)

In regards to Statute of Anne, I have restored it and explain myself here. Again, great sleuthing finding these dups; it shows how important it is that we add works into year based categories. John Vandenberg (chat) 01:24, 26 August 2008 (UTC)

PD-India + PD-old[edit]

Hello,

Why do you think it necessary to have both templates PD-India + PD-old? [1] It seems that PD-India is redondant here. Yann 23:14, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

use page image[edit]

Hi, Pages that transclude the {{use page image}} template are problematic by definition; it is an error to validate them. Hesperian 23:48, 31 August 2008 (UTC)

Rampa Story[edit]

Don't suppose I can convince you to split? :) Sherurcij Collaboration of the Week: Author:Charles Spurgeon 07:58, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

Alright, the splitting is fairly easy, just make a list at the top reading *[[/Chapter I|Chapter I]] (The / means it will create as a sub-page), then click it to copy/paste in the text from the main page. Once all is done, you'll eventually want a header on each page as well. If you need help, don't hesitate to ask Sherurcij Collaboration of the Week: Author:Charles Spurgeon 17:23, 3 September 2008 (UTC)

Template[edit]

I create {{Blockeduser}}. Feel free to tweak it as is needed. --Sunstar NW XP 14:45, 5 September 2008 (UTC)

nb: this is at {{blocked user}} now; Cheers, Jack Merridew 08:20, 25 October 2008 (UTC)

Speeches[edit]

There is a discussion at Wikisource:Possible copyright violations#Template:PD-manifesto about the use of {{PD-manifesto}} on speeches.--BirgitteSB 17:00, 10 September 2008 (UTC)

'populate' and DNB[edit]

Hi Kathleen. With the DNB project we are currently creating the corresponding author pages and will be adding the relevant biographies and listing them on these Author pages once they are transcribed. If you see Category:Contributors to DNB this is an indicator that we will populate these pages when the transcription is done. It may save a little effort on your behalf --billinghurst (talk) 00:43, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

Descriptive account[edit]

Thankyou. Hesperian 05:52, 2 October 2008 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Thank you for the assistance with the new author pages. :) Durova (talk) 07:06, 2 October 2008 (UTC)

Author:C. J. Dennis[edit]

I did it. Yann (talk) 11:29, 27 December 2008 (UTC)

[edit]

Hi there!!! It's me from Wikipedia!! I haven't seen you around w:c:WikiChristian. Where have you been?--God'sGirl94 (talk) 15:16, 13 April 2009 (UTC)

I've been busy at Christianity Knowledge Base aka Wikia:Christianity. Kathleen.wright5 22:16, 13 April 2009 (UTC)

Ahhhhh. Guess what!! I made a Christian Fiction Wiki!!--God'sGirl94 (talk) 14:37, 15 April 2009 (UTC)

Propaganda[edit]

Gday. You had a play with Propaganda after it was uploaded. I was looking at it and wondered whether it may be {{copyvio}}. Author died 1995 and it was written 1928. Do you know anything about it? Its copyright status? Or were you just passing? -- billinghurst (talk) 11:51, 3 June 2009 (UTC)

Thanks. Didn't want to tread somewhere if a fellow admin knew something. I have asked on the user's talk page about their knowledge of the work. -- billinghurst (talk) 13:13, 3 June 2009 (UTC)

proofreading[edit]

hello Kathleen,

thank you for your work on Occult Japan. Just a small remark : before you mark a page as proofread, please also correct its formatting (paragraphs, etc), not just the text itself : http://en.wikisource.org/w/index.php?title=Page:Occult_Japan_-_Lovell.djvu/18&oldid=1171009

ThomasV (talk) 13:30, 5 July 2009 (UTC)

Flecker[edit]

Cheers for validating the Flecker pages. I see single and double spacing between the paragraphs in the intro, but I put off deciding what do about that. Cygnis insignis (talk) 15:49, 22 July 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for proofing[edit]

Thanks for proofreading Inge's The Victorian Age. I thought it a nice read. If you have a small proofing project you would like done, let me know. --Mkoyle (talk) 22:49, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

The Jewish Manual[edit]

A job well done! --Eliyak T·C 00:06, 12 August 2009 (UTC)

EBD links[edit]

I have been working on EBD – Copying pages from Christ Notes and pasting them in; then putting in appropriate links to other EBD articles.

I saw that the scripture references in some of the articles are linked to the Book of the Bible from which they come. This to me seems not very useful, so I have not been doing it. If we could link them to the actual verses in some WS Bible it would be grand, but I don’t see how at this time. --MathMan64 (talk) 19:35, 29 August 2009 (UTC)

South Australia Proclamation & Marble Hill[edit]

Thank you Kathleen for the South Australia Proclamation Founding Document work you have done. I invite you to review the former summer Vice Regal Residence Marble Hill Discussion webpage as I'd appreciate your constructive comment.Mifren (talk) 13:01, 4 September 2009 (UTC)

A note about Validation month,[edit]

To let you know that an edit of yours completed the first validation of a work for the month. So now I have had the joy of needing to edit the script to +1 / -1 from the rotation, and it is only early on 3 Nov. Congrats! smiley billinghurst (talk) 15:13, 2 November 2009 (UTC)

And another! 2 from 2. billinghurst (talk) 01:42, 4 November 2009 (UTC)

My mental image =[edit]

You do know that I have this mental image of you dancing through a field of Index: pages, with your little wand, tapping on Page: after Page: bringing little blossoms of validation. wink Hi by the way. — billinghurst sDrewth 12:26, 26 February 2010 (UTC)

THAT was beautiful!—and so true! Best thing I've read all day! Londonjackbooks (talk) 02:29, 19 March 2011 (UTC)

Olney Hymns[edit]

Before you devote too much time formatting this work, it might interest you to know that it already exists at Olney Hymns. I contributed the Cowper hymns. I don't why somebody added the djvu pages. ResScholar (talk) 04:03, 1 April 2010 (UTC)

Diacritic templates[edit]

You have broken every one of those templates by inserting a carriage return before the noinclude. Hesperian 14:39, 14 May 2010 (UTC)

Ta. Hesperian 23:02, 14 May 2010 (UTC)

Template:DNB01[edit]

Hi, time permitting...was hoping you could revise the DNB01 template to include the documentation found on Template:DNB01/doc to help explain the process to the newbies. Thanks in advance. JamAKiska (talk) 00:08, 4 October 2010 (UTC)

Thanks...that would have taken me a while. Comparing this presentation Crawley, Richard (DNB01) to this one Baker, Geoffrey (DNB00), could you modify the DNB01 template to mirror the linking attributes that DNB00 possesses? Specifically not have the Wiki link default to on with no name, include a volume identification, and ensure the lateral links work? Again, time permitting...thank-you. JamAKiska (talk) 03:09, 4 October 2010 (UTC) Appreciate the help...Charles picked up at the point you indicated...JamAKiska (talk)

Please see User talk:JamAKiska#Re:Template:DNB01 and Template talk:DNB01 -- Philip Baird Shearer (talk) 23:50, 10 October 2010 (UTC)

year parameter in header[edit]

Gday,Kathleen. I am wondering whether you are aware that we have been using the year parameter in {{header}} rather than adding [[Category:YYYY works]]. — billinghurst sDrewth 13:02, 13 November 2010 (UTC)

Did you enjoy Mrs Caudle's curtain lectures?[edit]

It was a weird little work to put together and throw the images in. Once we have it complete, I would like to nominate it for Wikisource:Featured text candidates. — billinghurst sDrewth 17:24, 25 November 2010 (UTC)

Elephant stamp
for job well done.
billinghurst (talk)
What a bloody marvellous effort on the little works! Congrats. — billinghurst sDrewth 23:58, 25 November 2010 (UTC)

Index:Hoyt's New Cyclopedia Of Practical Quotations (1922).djvu[edit]

Thanks for your work on this! This one is a twofer - as the sections are finished, we're also copying them into corresponding theme articles on Wikiquote (see, e.g. Flowers). Cheers! BD2412 T 16:06, 9 December 2010 (UTC)

Userboxes[edit]

As you probably noticed, I've moved any non-wikisource-relevant userboxes into the User: namespace, including three into yours. I took the liberty of replacing them on your user page to avoid giving you a set of red links. I hope that's OK, sorry for the intrusion. Inductiveloadtalk/contribs 03:04, 18 December 2010 (UTC)

Index:Views in Suffolk, Norfolk, and Northamptonshire.djvu[edit]

Would you be so kind to stomp out the few remaining pages. Thanks. — billinghurst sDrewth 14:33, 19 December 2010 (UTC)

Someone has made a grab for your crown of the finisher! It's completed. — billinghurst sDrewth 15:32, 19 December 2010 (UTC)

Regarding Page:Gertie's sun flower.djvu/9[edit]

Thank you for validating Gertie's sun flower. I noticed that you've marked this page as having a problem; currently I've used {{float left}} and {{float right}} for the flowers along the border, which, when viewed side by side with the scan, pushes the text below the flowers. However, in the work, the spacing appears to be enough to allow them all to fit somewhat nicely. It only drops them if I reduce my browser size by roughly 30%. If this is the problem you see, do you think I should reduce the size of the images? - Theornamentalist (talk) 20:34, 30 December 2010 (UTC)

Image in 1901 Supplement volume 1.[edit]

Removed text as was able to find way to display the image of George Smith. Please take another look. To me, the image speaks for itself. Thanks for your help…JamAKiska (talk) 16:05, 31 December 2010 (UTC)

proofreading[edit]

The page title and number are not left on the page [2], please find out about {{Running header}} and what the [+] button does. There seem to be several standard practices that you are unaware of, if you use a watchlist you will have seen many comments on what you missed.

Secondly, while I am here, when I mark a page as problematic it is for a reason. Please don't mark pages as proofread unless the problem is resolved. cygnis insignis 06:01, 18 January 2011 (UTC)

Horse shoes and horse shoeing[edit]

dear Kathleen, first of all THANKS for your interest about Index:Horse shoes and horse shoeing.djvu! But I've bad news... the djvu I chose is faulty. Page 17 (original "paper" number) is lacking. I'm thinking about the best fixing strategy; I hate to ask for the help of a sysop, to help me into the tedious work of moving pages to align them to the new djvu file I'll upload; so I presume that at end I'll simply move texts of the pages.... perhaps wasting your validations! So, I can't promise that your work will not be wasted; feel free to slow down your validation work, or to stop it at all and to move to other, better books uploaded by a more careful user. :-(

Thanks again. --Alex brollo (talk) 08:05, 1 February 2011 (UTC)

Proofread pages have been aligned with new djvu file. I moved texts manually into the right pages. I apologyze for the fact that your validation - while is saved into pages history - is no more the last contribution. :-(
"Red pages" will be deleted (they only contain the OCR text layer, it will be re-uploaded as soon as they will be created again) --Alex brollo (talk) 09:15, 2 February 2011 (UTC)
All's OK, I fixed page 429. Do you know that you can paste and copy text layer from djvu file? I did so - since I can't upload djvu text layer into an existing page. :-) --Alex brollo (talk) 16:49, 3 February 2011 (UTC)

Carson Cistulli[edit]

This page is actually within copyright, the articles are taken from The New Enthusiast which is within the public domain.--193.251.43.248 00:39, 4 February 2011 (UTC)

Here are the citations:

All were taken from [WikiCommons http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Carson_Cistulli].--193.251.43.248 00:42, 4 February 2011 (UTC)

So, could you please restore this page, it was an enormous task to make.--193.251.43.248 00:43, 4 February 2011 (UTC)

Looking at what you have posted and to what you linked, my comment would be
  • That it is at archive.org does automatically not put it into the public domain, there is no clear statement on the publication that it is within the public domain.
  • It would need a clear statement from the copyright holder to be hosted, and that should be undertaken for the file at Commons (and those files are now so annotated).
  • please demonstrate how the work fits within Wikisource:What Wikisource includes, to me it seems borderline that it would meet that criteria as it would seem to be a self-published newsletter, rather than some work that has had a level of peer review.

billinghurst sDrewth 02:34, 4 February 2011 (UTC)

Hi billinghurst,

First thank you for your interest and willingness to help out in this project. It's possible that I've made a mistake, here's what I'm seeing: I found these in wikicommons and on the wikicommons page for each of these it says that there is a "Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported license" attached, hence that one is free "to share - to copy, distribute and transmit the work", in double checking this at the original page archive.org I see something similar -- In "description," "Creative Commons license: Attribution 3.0 United States", and in "Licenseurl" "http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/us/". Finally the publisher is named The Shuttlecoque Sporting Club, i.e. the writers

The question of relevancy is seperate and one I'd like to discuss elsewhere and after the first question of copyright. I'm firmly committed to improving wikisource and wikipedia in writing about contemporary american poetry, the last thing I want to do is add irrelevant material, again, I'll start a discussion about this in Carson Cistulli after the copyright discussion is resolved,

Thanks, --193.251.43.248 03:18, 4 February 2011 (UTC)

unaware?[edit]

I'm curious whether you are perhaps blissfully unaware of your participation in quite a few small, slow edit wars such as this one, and this one, and this one, and this one. Hesperian 04:22, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

Swedish[edit]

Hi, and thanks for helping with the Swedish grammar pages! I noticed you changed a couple of instances of æ to œ in the text -- I'm really not sure that is correct, although the letter does rather look like œ in the scan. For example, wikt:norræna is written with an æ and I don't think œ is even used in the Scandinavian languages... If you look at a cursive font like Monotype Corsiva in MS Word, the æ actually looks pretty close to how it's written in the scan. Hope you don't mind if I change it back. Regards, Jafeluv (talk) 00:33, 24 February 2011 (UTC)

Ok, I've changed it back to "æ". I think that weird letter would be a thorn (eg. þeirra). Jafeluv (talk) 02:13, 24 February 2011 (UTC)
Hmm... Maybe thorn with stroke? Jafeluv (talk) 07:59, 24 February 2011 (UTC)
Same for me, apparently you'd need to download some kind of exotic font set to get it to display correctly. I added it as an image for now. Jafeluv (talk) 16:23, 24 February 2011 (UTC)

Re: Wikitable formatting on - Page:A simplified grammar of the Swedish language.djvu/38 is not working.[edit]

Fixed -- I seem to have added a section begin tag on the same line with the table. Apparently a wikitable should always begin at the end of the line, otherwise it isn't recognized as table markup. Thanks for pointing that out. Jafeluv (talk) 11:48, 25 February 2011 (UTC)

Favour to ask[edit]

Something is not right at Special:PrefixIndex/The_Great_Salvation, I have just fixed links from The Great Salvation/Part Four however it is not hanging together and there is a real mishmash in the naming. Your review would be helpful. Thanks. — billinghurst sDrewth 04:19, 7 March 2011 (UTC)

Incentive to carry on...[edit]

Just a "thank you" for your continued validation of Mrs. Coates' Mine and Thine pages :) Every time I think about scanning more pages,—I "think again" and instead get to some other busy-work... But then when I see you've come a-validating, I set out to get back on track again! Appreciated! :) Londonjackbooks (talk) 22:40, 18 March 2011 (UTC)

Sry[edit]

Sry 2 bother u, but u were the last "administrator" who edited the project (that I can tell), I wonder if u could do me a favour and upload http://www.archive.org/details/romanceofisabell00burt to The Romance of Isabel, Lady Burton so I could work on proofreading it? Thx!

Sorry, I don't know how upload djvu files, User:Billinghurst can do that for you. --kathleen wright5 (talk) 02:15, 22 March 2011 (UTC)

Please stop[edit]

There was method in my madness but now its all gone to pieces. I'll sort it out. Moondyne (talk) 07:46, 24 March 2011 (UTC)

OK, noted. I'm aware I'm not following best practice but am sort of working alone on this so if you wouldn't mind leaving it, it'd be appreciated. I wont be transcluding any pages until the images are inserted. Moondyne (talk) 07:56, 24 March 2011 (UTC)
I've rethunk my system and will be happy to mark those as problematic. I hope I didn't offend you yesterday. Moondyne (talk) 07:32, 25 March 2011 (UTC)

your fixes[edit]

Thanks for fixes on the Tales, and the validation. I'm still trying to make the format work, it is a bit fiddly, and I noticed that I had missed quite a bit. Cheers, CYGNIS INSIGNIS

Stops of Various Quills[edit]

Thank you for all of your help here! I am going to try to get the text featured-eligible, but I need to research the guidelines/criteria a bit more first... I think it would make a good candidate, though! Londonjackbooks (talk) 14:17, 11 April 2011 (UTC)

Thanks![edit]

Thanks Kathleen for your validations to Index:Horse shoes and horse shoeing.djvu! I only hope that such a strange topic is interesting for you. In the meantime - if you are interested to tricks issues - you'll perhaps noted an interesting way to solve the trouble of citations splitted into two pages; you'll find an example into page 499-page 500. And what do you think about my exotic way to manage hyphenated words by noinclude tag followed by {{St}}? Are you comfortable with it? --Alex brollo (talk) 21:11, 12 April 2011 (UTC)

It will be a pleasure to work a little bit with your book - i found that the fastest way to get images from a book is to use my OCR software (FineReader 10) but I'll take the opportunity to explore jp2 format. have I to transform images into B/W, or in gray, or have I to save the original background color?
PS: I'll find more comfortable to go on with our talk here, in your talk page, and I guess that it will be comfortable for you too. --Alex brollo (talk) 06:32, 13 April 2011 (UTC)
Index:Horsemanship for Women.djvu isn't my book, it was uploaded by User:Eliyak in January this year. I left a message on his talk page about it but he hasn't got back to me. I don't anything about image formats—they're just ordinary line drawings. Click on one of the Problematic pages and you're see what I mean. --kathleen wright5 (talk) 07:48, 13 April 2011 (UTC)
Alex: hello again! Kathleen, sorry to intrude. Alex, you might want to take a look at {{hyphenated word start}} and {{hyphenated word end}} (redirects are at "hws" and "hwe" for speed). This is the "canonical" way to do hyphenated words at enWS. The internal structure is somewhat similar to using {{st}}, but they are specifically for hyphenated words, but {{st}} is for general other uses.
Also, you don't need to no-include a "follow" ref - these do not show up in the text, they just get added to the reflist.
You can also look on my user page for GIMP scripts for removing the background colours of drawings. Generally, I prefer removing the background discoloured paper colour, but only if it can be done without damaging the image. Inductiveloadtalk/contribs 09:58, 13 April 2011 (UTC)
OK Inductiveload for hws and hwe; I'll do. On the contrary, I don'n understand your suggestion about no-including follow refs: I only no-include blank rows between text and ref, for a better display of Page: text. But I can't exclude that I miss something. About GIMP: my problem was, how to use high-resolution Internet Archive jp2 images; and a it.source friend gave me the right suggestion. Yes, as soon as I'll get the series of cropped images I'll test your script. But I'm so slow while learning! I'm working from weeks simply at cleanup() and RunningHeader() routines! :-)
Then I must have misunderstood what was going on with the noincludes. My mistake. If you need help with the GIMP things, feel free to ask. They work in the latest version, no promises about other versions. You can get jp2 support for GIMP under Linux with an extension, but I'm not sure about Windows or Macs. Imagemagick can also handle jp2s, which makes for simple batch conversions. Inductiveloadtalk/contribs 21:57, 13 April 2011 (UTC)
First of all: Kathleen thanks for hosting this talk! I hope, it isn't not boring for you.
I couldn't open IA jp2 with Imagemagick and I asked help from Luigi62, experienced in graphic stuff. His suggestion has been, to use w:IfanView. Excellent tool! But I did a so-so work while converting images: you can see how beautiful is the png built by Luigi62 at page 30, and how blurred is my one, at page 20. I'll do all from scratch. --Alex brollo (talk) 15:02, 14 April 2011 (UTC)
@ Kathleen, while posting here an excellent applications converted all the page jp2 images into simpler-to-manage high resolution jpg. I hope, that it's matter of half an hour to crop them. I'll let you know when they are posted into Commons. :-) --Alex brollo (talk) 21:22, 13 April 2011 (UTC)
About Horsemanship for Women: did you note how many signs of real discomfort can clearly be seen into horses eyes and ears? And… how there's no sign of empathy on the woman face? So strange, in its "normality"! --Alex brollo (talk) 15:08, 14 April 2011 (UTC)
Yes, I did notice that, but I suppose that's how things were "done" in the 19th century. The only page that needs an image is Page:Horsemanship for Women.djvu/80—Musical notation, then it can be upgraded to Proofread. --kathleen wright5 (talk) 22:52, 14 April 2011 (UTC)
Done. It's the second time I found music into an equitation book, the first time was into one of Italian reinassance masterpieces by Caesar Fiaschi: it:Pagina:Fiaschi.djvu/106. It's a pity that translators as Google cannot do a good work with ancient Italian.
As soon as I finished proofreading of Horse shoes and horse shoeing (now, with Lafosse's observations, most of which valuable today, things are much less boring!), can be that I'll validate some pages of Horsemanship for Women, if it.source will not call me at home fastly. ;-) --Alex brollo (talk) 13:45, 15 April 2011 (UTC)

Popular Science Monthly Volume 1 validation.[edit]

Many thanks and my sincere gratitude for the completion. I am still obligated to anchor paragraphs to the index at the back of the volume, as well as check for missing {{nop}}’s for paragraphs ending at the bottom of pages. Both of which I will do!

The index/article relationship is stored in an offline MS Access database and I don’t want anyone to waste their time with it, because the first few volumes have a lot of original publisher errors and omissions. — Ineuw talk 09:42, 8 June 2011 (UTC)

File:Standard of the Salvation Army.svg.png[edit]

Hi, I'm just sorting through the list of unused files and I came across this file. I see that there are several versions of the Standard over at Commons commons:File:Standard of the Salvation Army.svg. Do we need this separate version here? Cheers, Beeswaxcandle (talk) 03:30, 12 June 2011 (UTC)

As efficient as ever! Sorry, I'm not a Vista user, so I can't help you on the automatic file suffixing (is that a word?). However, I wonder if you can do a Save As in an appropriate program and dictate the file type that way. Beeswaxcandle (talk) 07:36, 13 June 2011 (UTC)

on another Coates note[edit]

I've been changing my formatting with the Pro Patria text from using the poem tag to the "archaic" non-breaking spaces and breaks (which render better in PDF—a recent "concern" of mine, but not too much of one), so you may have noticed my proofreads over your proofreads. Sorry about that, but thank you for the drive-by's as always! With regards to the Wilson quotation page, I'm not happy with my improvised attempt at recreating the image. Something about the prose formatting doesn't translate well in the Main... So if you know of a better way, please have a go! Thanks for all, Londonjackbooks (talk) 02:05, 15 June 2011 (UTC)

Wikipedia Governance essay[edit]

Hi I have edited Wikipedia a fair bit, but never contributed here. I've just created Wikipedia_Governance copied from here, since it looks like an interesting "historical" (if 2002 can be considered history!) document.

Hi, I messed up a couple of pages in Index:Howards End.djvu and accidentally set them to Proofread. Could you please validate them for me? Thanks heaps, Beeswaxcandle (talk) 08:47, 25 September 2011 (UTC)

Thank You[edit]

Kathleen,

I have appreciated your flitting and floating over much of the work I have transcribed here... To quote Billinghurst—". . . with your little wand, tapping on Page: after Page: bringing little blossoms of validation." :) I always liked that image, and thought it true! With the reworking of Mrs. Coates' Pages that I have been doing as of late, I am sure I have been taking over your 'watchlist' recently! As a result of your familiarity with the work—and because I don't know where else it would be appropriate for me to inquire and inform—I was wondering if you might not keep an eye on things, for I think it's time for me to leave here permanently. I didn't expect to leave, and I hate to have left anything undone—but I think I have left sufficient instruction in one of my sandboxes for anyone who might consider picking up where I left off. As for my User page, Talk page, and subpages, I honestly don't know what I should do with them—so I'll leave them at the discretion of you all. With that, thank you! :) I have enjoyed my time here very much. Londonjackbooks (talk) 19:46, 11 October 2011 (UTC)

Well, I had thought to clean up my User pages, etc., since only I could, really. I think I have addressed my main concerns about what is left to be cleaned up (reworked pages/reformatting, etc.). I would have liked to better refine Mrs. Coates' fugitive piece pages, but perhaps someone will come along to bring them up to a better standard. I'm "going home" so to speak to get back to my own domestic "source"! My "mop" use isn't so good here at home either, but I'll try to reacquaint myself with it! ;) Thanks again for all, Londonjackbooks (talk) 00:47, 15 October 2011 (UTC)
Going through my mind lately has been the phrase (well maybe not a phrase, but at least the words), "If you don't do it, then who will?" I don't want to stop working with Mrs. Coates' (& related) poetry yet. I think I at least need to see through what I have started. When that's done, then I can reassess again. What I do need to do is at least prioritize my time between here and home, and not let one suffer at the hands of the other, for they're both important to me! . . . No response necessary :) Have a good one, Londonjackbooks (talk) 16:32, 17 October 2011 (UTC)

Validation[edit]

Kathleen,

This is a request that you please stop validating the book that I and two others are working on. Not only is the editing being done in English but also it is being translated into Spanish and hopefully into French.

Gesenius and Web fonts[edit]

Army and Naval Hymnal[edit]

The downgrading of the pages was because it was going to be converted to use the TOC style templates instead of a direct table, but your efforts are appreciated.

You will also note(check my history) I've started to change hardcoded headers for the hymns themselves over to using {{hymn-header}}.

This is so that there is a consistency of style across the transcriptions, and because a templates fields are easy to scan by automated indexing tools. The hope is that Author pages for the lyricists and composers could be populated by bots based on data in {{hymn-header}}.

Validating[edit]

I cannot validate my own work. I am asking if you would be so kind as to consider validating some of this book? Please take a look before you decide either way at [[3]] With all due respect, and obviously that is a lot from what I have seen of you and your work, Maury (—William Maury Morris II Talk 14:15, 27 May 2012 (UTC)

Kathleen, again I want to thank you for the validations you have done as requested by me in the above statements. I also want to ask a question about validating that I am confused about. In some of your validating, you completely leave out the running headers and page numbers and then validate each page in that manner. My question is -- is that proper? I honestly do not know but in my validating I do use running headers and page numbers so when I am validating and see pages already marked green, I figure someone has already included the headers and page numbers. It's confusing so could you *pretty please* let me know if that is a right way to validate? I am going to try to stay away from those due to the confusion it causes me—but then the book would not be properly validated *or would it* ? I sincerely do not know. If it is okay to validate as I point out here then I too never have to include running headers or page numbers in any of the books that I transcribe which does save a lot of work. Please let me know about this, whichever way it is supposed to be done. I am trying to understand some rules on this when every editor has his or her preferences. Kindest regards, William Maury Morris II (talk) 01:58, 30 June 2012 (UTC)

Advice for Index:Alices adventures in Cambridge.djvu?[edit]

Hello Kathleen.wright5.

Thank you for validating my proofreading of this book. Either you were being very kind, or I haven't made as many mistakes as I feared I would (a couple of those cross-page poems simply drove me insane, and I was sure somebody would demonstrate how silly my approach was!)

However, I would appreciate some advice regarding what I expect are throw-backs to an older quality/validation system. There are a few of these scattered around the various pages, but this demonstrates both issues together:

1.Use of {{TextQuality}} template:

Can these be simply removed, since so far as I can tell, any page using <pages> automatically gets the little colour-bar hint under the page heading, and that seems to me to be somewhat equivalent?

2.Use of {{incomplete}} template:

I am reluctant to simply remove this, although its presence implies work is still needed when this is no longer true. My main misgiving is that the template also carries a parameter |oclc=256534029, which seems to be some kind of useful global catalogue identifier for the book itself, and I simply do not know how to preserve this kind of information. Any suggestions?
Regards, MODCHK (talk) 11:14, 3 September 2012 (UTC)

Validations[edit]

Hi. Please desist from validating pages without checking if they meet proofreading standards. For example: In this Page:The food of the Gods - A Popular Account of Cocoa.djvu/12, the page number links go nowhere.

Template to indicate music[edit]

Hi, there are a couple of ways to indicate that music is missing from a page. We can either use {{Page contains sheet music}} or add Category:Pages requiring musical examples to the footer.

Australia[edit]

Kathleen, thank you for pointing to the detailed information about Australia. I have read that and a page MODCHK pointed out to me on gold there. Still, there is much more of that fascinating history. I posted the following earlier today on MODCHK's user page:

" I lucked out today with television, History International, because it was all about the History of Australia! Most Respectfully, —Maury (talk) 03:36, 11 January 2013 (UTC)"

 

 

That program was amazing. It gave the names of some of the first people exiled there and how many there were on that first shipload of convicted people. A point that surprised me was that it also covered people of a higher education on trumped up charges and convicted then sent to Australia so that with their higher education the so-called "convicts" would become educated by "people of the pen (plume)". It showed a men exploring old gold mines, it showed one man descending into a grain storage area that was dug out of the ground and it showed an area where "thousands" of canisters of "mustard gas" (illegal by World War II) was stored in case the Japanese made their way into Australia. It showed much more and all of it was very revealing including secrets by two men who had worked with those mustard gas canisters who kept it a secret for 50 years. What we see of Australia as visitors of today is nothing like what the program showed. When mustard gas connects with air fumes begin and blisters start until any breathing thing is killed but tortured before they died because their insides start bleeding and they die coughing up blood as those painful blisters form all over the bodies. Wikipedia and Wikisource could never show all of what the program showed. I found myself constantly saying, "Great Heavens!" Britain was very cruel to the prisoners even if they had "stolen a rabbit" as the program stated they would get life in Australia. Britain was very brutal to all of her colonies and their were many colonies -- all to keep that little island of Britain "Great Britain". One of the thing that amazes me is places like Australia, colonies, still sing, "God Save The Queen"! I don't understand that!!! I am in the USA and nobody sings it here! Kindest regards, —Maury (talk) 06:29, 11 January 2013 (UTC)

Unnecessary formatting[edit]

Hi Kathleen, please stop adding {{gap}} to the pages of English as She is Spoke. We are not slavishly reproducing the format of the pages, which are artefacts of the small page size. We are reproducing the text and making it available. If you really want the indented format to appear then use {{hanging indent}}. Beeswaxcandle (talk) 02:55, 12 January 2013 (UTC)

Validation help, if available and interested[edit]

Hi Kathleen, I don't know if you've noticed, but we've had a bit of a drama over the validating of Index:The Story of Doctor Dolittle.djvu. Basically, the original validator ran through it all in a little over an hour and left many errors unfixed. Because I did most of the initial proofread I shouldn't go over it again and I was wondering if you might have the time and interest to re-do the validations. A few of the pages have been set back to yellow, but most of the green pages need re-checking as well. Beeswaxcandle (talk) 03:49, 1 March 2013 (UTC)

If we had barnstars, I'd give you one. As it is I can only offer sincere thanks (and prayers for the health to continue working here). Beeswaxcandle (talk) 08:05, 1 March 2013 (UTC)

Thank you for the validations[edit]

Advice regarding "long s"[edit]

(I'm a reasonably infrequent visitor here.) I read on Wikisource:STYLE#Formatting that long-s characters should be put in with a template rather than directly translating them to "s". So I went back and changed one of the pages I'd previously validated. But then I noticed that you and some other editors in the same book were leaving them as plain s. What should we do? I don't want to be inconsistent with the rest of the book. --99of9 (talk) 10:25, 29 May 2013 (UTC)

The templates were created at a time when browsers and Google searches would not recognize the long-s character for what it was. That situation has changed, so typically I'll put the character for long-s directly into the text if it's a text where the distinction matters, such as the First Folio text for Shakespeare or Milton's Paradise Lost. However, there are some texts where the distinction really doesn't matter, and in those instances I may transcribe as "s".

Job and Biblical poetry[edit]

I ntoiced (with much excitement) that you've started volume 2 of your long-term project on the 300th anniversary edition of the KJV. The prophetic books are far more interesting to me personally, although they do present the issue of page formatting. There's a simpler way to format the poetic passages than using <poem>. . . to see what I'd suggest look at page 5 of volume 2, where I've validated your page from Job. Notice that the original volume has the poetry lines indented, so I'm simply using the wiki colon to indent each line. There are four things to watch out for, though:

(1) Using this method, you'll need to leave a blank line ahead of the page number in the footer, or else it will not center. I've done this for page 5 in case you need to see exactly what I mean; you can pull up the page in the edit window to see where the blank line is. But you should not leave a blank line at the bottom of the body text.
(2) Poetry in the original wraps back when the line is too long for the page on which it was printed, but we shouldn't preserve that since our readers' screen width will vary, and may wrap later or sooner. So, wrapped lines should be joined as a single one.
(3) The OCR frequently got the end-of-line punctuation wrong, so this has to be checked carefully.
(4) Breaks between passages of poetry will need use {{dhr}} to put a sufficiently large space between passages. I've done this in the pages I'm proofreading for Hosea (I've started working through the minor prophets), so you can see an example here. Leaving two blank lines should leave the same amount of space, but on testing I've found that it leaves far too much, whereas a single blank line is barely noticable.

I also notice that sometimes there's a larger letter at the start of a line, and adjusted page 5 of Job for this. Thanks for getting this project going, and for keeping it going! --EncycloPetey (talk) 21:53, 14 June 2013 (UTC)

Please stop validating invalid pages[edit]

Hi. Could you kindly stop validating pages such as this: Page:Popular Science Monthly Volume 57.djvu/288 and others in the same article. In addition to the missing paragraph at the top of the page, how can one justify validating the image size and quality? — Ineuw talk 08:53, 20 June 2013 (UTC)

What missing paragraph? The paragraph is there; it's simly been repositioned below the image so that the image does not intrude in the middle of the paragraph. Some editors consider this a fair and fluid change (while others prefer to rigidly follow the original format). If your concern is the size and quality of the image, then why not simply resize the image, and ask someone to improve the image file? The image is actually a separate file, and is not part of the text validating process. If the image file exists, it exists. Proofreading and validation only check that the image file exists, not that it meets some abstract quality standard. If you disagree, then start a discussion in the Scriptorium. I've never seen anything on any Help or Style Guide page that suggests that validation is help up simply because an image is of less than ideal quality. --EncycloPetey (talk) 01:47, 21 June 2013 (UTC)

Kathleen, Thank you for the validations ![edit]

Kathleen, Thank you for the validations today on Recollections of a Rebel Reefer. One of my most annoying things on en.Wikisource is having to find someone who will validate. Not many here validate other's works as much as we do. You should ask for a raise :) Respectfully, —Maury (talk) 00:24, 22 June 2013 (UTC)

July's PotM?[edit]

Hi Kathleen, if you've a moment could you have a look at WT:PotM#Attempt to distill above discussion into a few options and indicate if you've a preference for a first Geography work? Beeswaxcandle (talk) 10:10, 26 June 2013 (UTC)

Laws of Hammurabi[edit]

No, all the pages have been proofread. There is a MW-wide error causing display problems on the Index pages. See the last two threads in the Scriptorium. --EncycloPetey (talk) 04:48, 28 June 2013 (UTC)

Please keep me apprised of your progress on validating this work. I think it would make an excellent candidate for a featured text, as it is sourced, has images of the original Akkadian, and is the first translation of the Codex into English. None of these points is true of our previous two translations of the Codex. --EncycloPetey (talk) 06:36, 28 June 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for that. I made the nomination. --EncycloPetey (talk) 18:20, 28 June 2013 (UTC)

John Burroughs book[edit]

There is a problem on page 8 of this http://en.wikisource.org/wiki/John_James_Audubon_(Burroughs)/I. I am new to wikisource and was unable to fix the way the text is displayed on page 8. Letting you know, since you have worked on this before. ThanksJacqke (talk) 04:59, 28 June 2013 (UTC)

Minor prophets[edit]

BTW, I finished proofreading the last pages of the minor prophets. Everything you did is validated, so any yellow pages remaining are ones that I proofread (mostly Zechariah, I think). I won't be working on that particular effort much for the next month or two, but will (as always) come back from time to time to help out. I just have other items demanding my attention, both on WS and offline. --EncycloPetey (talk) 21:50, 5 July 2013 (UTC)

Thanks the XVIIth ;)[edit]

Hi Kathleen,

I don't know whether you've noticed, but no less than 12 16 sections on your talk page begin with the words "Thanks" or "Thank you". I'm here to be the seventeenth. ;) Thanks a lot for all you've done in the way of validation, not only for me, but on behalf of the whole of enWS. Really, when you look at it, I'd say that at least half [if not three-quarters :)] of the validations on enWS have been done by you. I pity the other language wikisources for not having a Kathleen.wright5 in their midst. Still, their loss is our gain. How on earth did you manage to validate Cox and Box? I could hardly read it, let alone proofread it. :) —Clockery Fairfield (talk) 14:57, 6 July 2013 (UTC)

The first one is the original play on which the second one is based. The second one is Cox and Box, which is actually a one-act operetta which was adapted from the original play, which was written by John Maddison Morton. Cox and Box uses most of the original dialogue, plus a few songs written by F. C. Burnand and set to music by Arthur Sullivan. Only difference was that the character Mrs. Bouncer was changed to become Sergeant Bouncer, because the Moray Minstrels, for whom the operetta was written to be performed, didn't include women. Since in those days no copyright laws existed, Morton didn't receive any profit from Cox and Box. Pretty raw deal for him, because the operetta eventually grew more popular than the original play itself. The first index was validated by me and was actually the first (and only) index I completely validated. :) I've been putting off the proofreading of those two pages in the second index ever since I began doing it, but I suppose I'll get down to it someday. Maybe later… :) —Clockery Fairfield (talk) 06:01, 7 July 2013 (UTC)
Well, looks like I've finally got down to doing those two pages. The first was actually done in a single sitting at marathon speed. :) It was actually you who motivated me to finish it, otherwise it would've stayed in my list for weeks. Thanks—Clockery Fairfield (talk) 15:20, 8 July 2013 (UTC)

Help with a detail?[edit]

Hi Kathleen, thanks again for all your help with the OER books. I tried to make a small fix on this page, which should contain an indented bullet list. But if you look at how it gets pulled in at the bottom of Appendix 3, you will see an annoying double bullet. Do you know how to fix this? -Pete (talk) 18:20, 15 July 2013 (UTC)

The problem is the level of indentation. If you look at the bottom of the page: A Basic Guide to Open Educational Resources/Appendix 3
The bottom few items should look like this:
  • Wielding the applications…
    • Mashups, …
    • Digital storytelling, …
    • Data visualization,…
    • Google jockeying,… <PAGE BREAK HERE>
    • Virtual meetings,…
    • Grid computing, …
But instead it looks like:
  • Wielding the applications…
    • Mashups, …
    • Digital storytelling, …
    • Data visualization,…
    • Google jockeying,… <PAGE BREAK HERE>
  • Virtual meetings,…
  • Grid computing, …


OK, I'll ask around. Thanks! -Pete (talk) 22:55, 15 July 2013 (UTC)

De re metallica[edit]

Thanks Kathleen for your proofreading of Index:De re metallica (1912).djvu. As you perhaps imagine, I'm much more interested into "formatting issues, templates and scripts" and I'm using this mostly important work to learn and refine them, searching for the more difficult issues while disregarding simple ones (not so simple for me, since English is not my own language...); I apologyze for this, but I've lots of things to learn and to test (next issue will be, the terrible Indexes al the bottom of the book). I'll learn from your work; you already solved a perplexing problem (what to do with text of image captions). --Alex brollo (talk) 14:50, 19 July 2013 (UTC)

Wikisource User Group[edit]

Wikisource, the free digital library is moving towards better implementation of book management, proofreading and uploading. All language communities are very important in Wikisource. We would like to propose a Wikisource User Group, which would be a loose, volunteer organization to facilitate outreach and foster technical development, join if you feel like helping out. This would also give a better way to share and improve the tools used in the local Wikisources. You are invited to join the mailing list 'wikisource-l' (English), the IRC channel #wikisource, the facebook page or the Wikisource twitter. As a part of the Google Summer of Code 2013, there are four projects related to Wikisource. To get the best results out of these projects, we would like your comments about them. The projects are listed at Wikisource across projects. You can find the midpoint report for developmental work done during the IEG on Wikisource here.

validating[edit]

Kathleen,

Beeswaxcandle has completed many books that have short and easy reading with few or no complexities in formatting. Therefore they are easy to validate. There are many of these books as a series. I am asking you if you would help to validate and thus complete all of the works Beeswaxcandle has done in this series or at least one book. The books are short. I am working on two at once as one is completed and the other he is just starting. Please consider validating his book here (approx 244 pages) [[6]].

Kindest regards,

—Maury (talk) 20:10, 2 August 2013 (UTC)

Wow! You're Swift ![edit]

Kathleen, you are very fast and accurate. I appreciate all you have done on Flowers of New Zealand, Notes on New Zealand, and now Face To Face With the Mexicans. Since it is basically "thankless task", like many tasks here on en.ws, I wanted to state my personal appreciations directly to you. May God Bless you in life in all of your endeavors. The work we do is for all humanity and for all time. Who can know, but God, how far these works travel into the future to untold and yet unborn generations? Respectfully, —Maury (talk) 13:48, 29 September 2013 (UTC)

Bless you, Kathleen. Once again you have gotten some confusion out of my way through your validations. I hope the weather is good there in Australia for your health. It has changed quickly from 100+ every day here to lows in the 50s at night. I prefer Virginia's 4 equal seasons. Have a wonderful new day! —Maury (talk) 08:58, 9 October 2013 (UTC)

mx[edit]

Kathleen, I am not sure if this book on Mexico Young Folks' History of Mexico is "done" because there are chapters half filled in by Beeswaxcandle but the other half are not done. I don't know how to do those so would you please look at them and fill in what is needed to complete the book? Thank you for the validations you did. Kindest regards, —Maury (talk) 17:38, 2 December 2013 (UTC)

"PS - Another user is doing this Gumr51 by adding pages in Namespace"

I know, He is a friend of mine who lives in Mexico City. I contacted him via email and asked him to do this. You stated you don't know how and I don't know how either. :0) Thank you for all you have done, Kathleen. Kindest regards, —Maury (talk) 20:10, 2 December 2013 (UTC)

Wanted to thank you for the work you put into ANCL vol. 1. I'm really pleased with how it came together, and how quickly it came together for a work that isn't POTM. I'm going to be doubling down on some other projects in the near future but I'm looking forward to collaborating on subsequent volumes some day. Prosody (talk) 01:31, 2 February 2014 (UTC)

.[edit]

Kathleen, please do not proofread any of the text on the book I have placed on en.WS You have seen my statement of "in use" It is because I want to stay with the flow of the book and not having others interrupting my flow of page-by-page. <>< Thank you. —Maury (talk) 06:44, 6 March 2014 (UTC)

Question on footers[edit]

Hi Kathleen. Just want to say thanks for validating Kidnapped in London, however I noticed that you have removed some footer content, like this one. Are they not necessary and should I not include them for future transcriptions? Cheers. —Wylve (talk) 19:17, 21 April 2014 (UTC)

Informative page on the "Mother of the Salvation Army" etc.[edit]

Hi Kathleen. I am working on a book entitled, Women Triumphant, as seen on the watchpage. I encountered this image and informative text that I think you might want to see regarding the Booth family.
 

Use "on mouse over" this image to read. —Maury (talk) 04:41, 27 April 2014 (UTC)

Kathleen, thank you for the validations on Woman Triumphant. I was beginning to think the book would never get a validation. It is fascinating to see women who have "climbed the ladder" and yet annoying to know they are still not paid equally for work done. As you can see in the book their lives are still changing for the better but over centuries. The work of the Salvation Army was new and amazing to me. I didn't know the history of it. When I was young (16 years of age) I worked for my father's construction company and we built a huge Salvation Army building of brick that replaced a small over-worked wood-frame house that then served as a Salvation Army building. I have always viewed it as a monument to the goodness of people helping people. In Christ, —Maury (talk) 21:22, 28 April 2014 (UTC)


Kathleen, once again I have come to you to say "Thank you" for your help and this time it is for your work on Woman Triumphant, an amazing book that has filled in a lot of history for me that I never knew. Also, feel perfectly free at proofreading any of those pages and not just validating -- if you so desire the option. It is difficult to get good proofreaders/validaters on en.ws. I have been blessed in that you have helped with your aid on so many projects. I hope that you see the credit where credit is due on each project in the information area of the Index page. If you are a Mother then I also wish you a "Happy Mother's Day". I think people don't know how important that really is until their mom really is, until she passes on as in my case. When my beloved mother passed on in her sleep and I found her, I left Virginia and moved to the state of Washington immediately after mom's funeral. I took only her Cocker Spaniel, the clothes I was wearing, my wallet and immediate travel by plane. All praise to God for all of the descent ladies. In Christ, —Maury (talk) 20:36, 11 May 2014 (UTC)

The Tragic Drama of the Greeks[edit]

Thanks for your assistance thus far in validating The Tragic Drama of the Greeks. I have finished the Contents and first few pages for Index:The Tragic Drama of the Greeks (1896).djvu.

If you are able to continue validating this work, that's wonderful, but note that beginning at page 5, the author makes extensive use of Greek quotations in the footnotes, and if you are not able or comfortable validating Ancient Greek text, then I completely understand. However, please do let me know whether or not you will be able to validate Ancient Greek and its fiddly diacriticals, as I'm a little uncertain at times myself. Some of the Greek text I am able to acquire pre-typed through Perseus, but other bits I have to enter manually myself. If I need to alert a Greek specialist, I can do that, but again, just let me know one way or another. --EncycloPetey (talk) 19:29, 30 May 2014 (UTC)

Related request: Would you mind Validating the article on "Greek Literature" from the 1911 Encyclopaedia Britannica? It's a little under 21 pages, and it took a week for me to proofread with all the proper names, punctuation, Greek, French, and German in there, but shouldn't take nearly so long to validate. There are few articles from the 1911 EB (like this one) that we really need to have on Wikisource, to help provide context for the works we're hosting. --EncycloPetey (talk) 22:37, 15 June 2014 (UTC)

Soft redirects[edit]

Hi Kathleen, have you deleted all the soft redirects from Category:Soft redirects/February 2013, which User:TalBot was about to process, like, tomorrow? What about the back-links? I was somewhat surprised to find the redirects gone *scratches head*.--GrafZahl (talk) 22:11, 6 June 2014 (UTC)

Category:Soft redirects Yes, I've deleted the February 2013 redirects, along with most of the others. I've only left those I feel should be left for now like those for September 2013 that are Wikisource:Requests for Assistance/Archives and those I don't know how to update. I always do a 'What Links Here' and there were no pages linked to February 2013 redirects. --kathleen wright5 (talk) 00:00, 7 June 2014 (UTC)
I probably deleted far more pages from of that category than Kathleen did (if not all of them). I fixed all the back links to the pages I deleted excepting the Talbot redirect pages. Since the Talbot pages were obviously solely cataloging the very I issues I was resolving, there would be not point in editing these. It didn't even occur to me that the Talbot redirect pages could possibly be active since the category from Feb 2013 with plenty of broken redirects was still hanging around in June 2014. The botting had obviously been abandoned for at least 14 months. Why would I expect it to start again tomorrow?--BirgitteSB 04:46, 7 June 2014 (UTC)
Hi, thanks for all your work fixing the redirects. Sorry for not checking myself. Yesterday it was so late in my time zone that I thought, I'd just ask, as two weeks ago, the bot found some back-links. I was also very surprised to see that redlink on the announcement page, but I shouldn't have been, for, speaking of which, it isn't exactly conspicuous, when I think about it. So I guess the next target for User:TalBot should be Category:Soft redirects/September 2013, which will be done on 14 or 15 June 2014.
Sorry for all the confusion. I hope everything is cleared up now. Thanks again!

Antarctic Voyage Plates[edit]

Hi Kathleen, for my peace of mind, can you please confirm that you've checked the alt text for each image? It should contain all the text from each image. i.e. plate number, artist, printer and species name(s) should all be there and spelt correctly including any æ or œ ligatures. I'm working on the last set of them now and they should be up by the end of tomorrow. Cheers, Beeswaxcandle (talk) 07:36, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

Deletion of templates[edit]

Hi. I am not sure from where deletion of unused templates springs. It isn't a speedy deletion criteria, and there has been no discussions. The string of EB1911 author templates would appear to have been been prepared based on contributor lists in the EB, and therefore will be used at some point, so should not have been deleted. I had to recover the diacritic templates that get substituted, so won't be used, and GO3 has undeleted templates. All seem to indicate that something is is not right with your process. — billinghurst sDrewth 12:14, 16 December 2014 (UTC)

And it would be worthwhile for you to read further about preload, as deleting those indicates a significant knowledge gap, as they are never "used" but always used. — billinghurst sDrewth
