“(looks like a ※ mark to me)”―Eleanor Elizabeth Bourne Papers[edit]

Hello. I just saw this edit and I simply could not agree more. I simply could not locate the correct character and went for the nearest glyph I could find, bearing in mind the handwritten section was already at right angles to the main text. I think you used Unicode ※ (※), is that right? My (wrong) guess had been ⁜ (⁜). Thank you in any case for the correction. MODCHK (talk) 10:07, 9 July 2013 (UTC)

Doctoring Stock.[edit]

Hello Lankiveil.

Thank you for performing the above validation.

I noticed you amended {{sp|DOCTORING STOC.}}K. to {{sp|DOCTORING STOCK.}}. Just warning you that if you don't like this style I have regrettably done it quite a lot elsewhere in this work. I have noted in the past that {{letter spacing}} (which {{sp}} uses internally often produces ludicrous effects especially when the string being formatted ends in a full-stop. As a result I have formed a habit of always leaving the final character and any punctuation outside of the template invocation.

This is the effect I wish to avoid:

DOCTORING STOCK. The first symptoms…

DOCTORING STOCK. The first symptoms…

-at least on my browser (FireFox 22.0), the full-stop on the first line hangs out in space like a mistake. Maybe yours does a better job?

Pardon, that was a long-winded way of saying it was deliberate on this occasion, I have done it extensively elsewhere and I may slip into the habit again in future. Is this a problem? MODCHK (talk) 22:40, 6 August 2013 (UTC)

D’oh™! Regarding User talk:MODCHK#Doctoring Stock, you were of course 100% correct all along, and in my misplaced eagerness to explain the issue I thought you were addressing, I had completely overlooked my own original error. Hubris, where art thou? MODCHK (talk) 09:00, 31 August 2013 (UTC)

Signed your welcome...[edit]

…hope you don't mind. :) Cheers,—Clockery Fairfeld (talk) 14:03, 30 August 2013 (UTC)

Index:Ian Charlton.ogg[edit]

The file has been resurrected and the licence applied, and we will need to add corresponding licence and OTRS here at the right time. We haven't done many transcriptions of sound recordings using the Page system, and whatever we do will be a bit of a hack. Theornamentalist (talkcontribs) has done stuff with films,eg. Alice in Wonderland (1903 film) so I think that we may prod him to help with this, as the internals of getting oggs to play at the right point is all new to me. Use of the Page: ns for the transcriptions is just the matter of creating the pages and pasting the transcription, but as hack it may not be worth the effort as it is static, and we cannot put in place any corresponding image. — billinghurst sDrewth 00:27, 12 September 2013 (UTC)user:pippigolightly thank you all. I think @JohnVandenburg is having a look at this now https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Index:Ian_Charlton.ogg Do you think it still might not be worth it? Keen to know your advice. -SLQ staff.
