Out of reach[edit]

Hello, I will be out of reach for sometime. Don't expect an answer if you post anything here. For any news, see here. Yann (talk) 15:36, 31 December 2009 (UTC)

Little request[edit]

Notice modeled after [4]

As Template:New texts is monitored in IRC, and many users have it in their Watchlists, I was wondering whether you would consider adding the name of the text being added to the edit summary, rather than solely +1,-1. Even if it is just have +Name of work, -1 that would be most helpful. Thanks. -- Cirt (talk) 04:27, 21 March 2010 (UTC)

User:ThomasBot/Help:Bots and Yannbot[edit]

Hi. Hope all is well stranger. Is the above referred page still relevant and accurate in its information with regard to Yannbot? Thanks. — billinghurst sDrewth 13:29, 7 December 2010 (UTC)

YannBot is no longer operational. I am quite busy with other stuff. Yann (talk) 17:45, 12 December 2010 (UTC)

The Origins of Totalitarianism[edit]

Yann, thank you for contributing this unusual version of a work of merit. But I feel I have to nominate it as a WS:COPYVIO because it seems to have been published at the Library of Congress under a Fair Use rationale, and because it duplicates a published, copyrighted, renewed 1951 work. Feel free to have your say at the WS:COPYVIO discussion, however. ResScholar (talk) 09:25, 22 March 2011 (UTC)

M. K. Gandhi: Indian Patriot in South Africa formatting[edit]

Gday Yann. The formatting and transclusion on this work now looks a little dated. I am wondering whether you could/would tidy it up? Or whether you are happy for me to address it. Thanks. Billinghurst (talk) 01:08, 1 April 2011 (UTC)

Yes, sure. Please do it. Yann (talk) 13:39, 2 April 2011 (UTC)

Request for Comment[edit]

Would you please comment at User Talk:Inductiveload#Manifesto regarding the copyright status of a 1929 Indian text. Thanks.--Siddhartha Ghai (talk) 22:05, 9 October 2011 (UTC)

Photography: Theory and Practice and Canadian Wikilivres[edit]

  1. As the French original version of Photography: Theory and Practice is believed to be legally copyrightable in the USA but PD in Canada, I am exporting many pages to Canadian Wikilivres. However, Wikilivres:Index:PhotographyTheoryAndPracticeOCRed.djvu is not working fully due to some missing templates, so I am postponing deleting pages here until everything is in better order at Canadian Wikilivres.
  2. Will Canadian Wikilivres become the website of Wikimedia Canada?
  3. Will Canadian Wikilivres be renamed anytime soon? I need the answer as its going to receive many files tagged commons:Not-PD-US-URAA, thus becoming the alternate website of Wikisource and Wikimedia Commons, will more likely require a fixed Chinese translation, but I cannot efficiently ask Chinese users if renaming is happening soon.

Merci beaucoup ! --Jusjih (talk) 20:14, 6 February 2012 (UTC)

Hello, I don't know the answer to these questions. Regards, Yann (talk) 08:09, 10 February 2012 (UTC)

Flood flag?[edit]

Hi, to avoid flooding RC with the deletions I suggest you turn your flood flag on. Beeswaxcandle (talk) 23:12, 6 December 2013 (UTC)

Who was Ben Junus?[edit]

Hello—my turn to request your assistance, if you might be so kind as to spare the time?

Would you please give me your opinion on the possibility that the "Ben Junus" referred to here might in fact be Abu 'Ali' Isa ibn Zur'a/d:Q3147466? I freely admit I have followed such a long chain of (possible) connections to associate these two entries that I neither can entirely recall (nor entirely trust) this conclusion as valid. (Also, my grasp of French is appallingly poor, and I do not want to risk missing any subtleties on that page!)

Thank you, Viewer2 (talk) 23:29, 6 December 2013 (UTC)

@Viewer2: Well, searching for "Ben Junus 1008" only shows copies of this book. VIAF and ISNI don’t have anything relevant, so I don’t know where to look. Sorry… Yann (talk) 05:50, 7 December 2013 (UTC)
Ah well, it was a rather long shot, and I really wasn't sure whether I had made a false connection (obviously I must have done.) Thank you very much for trying!

Oh, and thanks also for resolving the Author:Lancelot Wilkinson matter. Viewer2 (talk) 07:20, 7 December 2013 (UTC)

Not linking to page namespace[edit]

Gday Yann. Nice to see you back, and I hope that life has been treating you well. In this edit you linked the table of content pages through to specific Page: ns pages; it is not a current practice. If a link is desired (page ns to page ns), then we have {{DJVU page link}}, however, I don't bother. The thinking is that for a general user to end up in the Page: ns by following a link is not what they want, nor that we desire. — billinghurst sDrewth 23:52, 7 December 2013 (UTC)

OK. On French WS, we do add such links. I won't do it. /o\ Yann (talk) 11:59, 8 December 2013 (UTC)
Ah, the complexities and consistency of life. — billinghurst sDrewth 12:20, 8 December 2013 (UTC)

Scans from Google Books[edit]

Greetings, I am coming from this thread. Two works I uploaded (Durga Puja and Library Administration) contains the warning from Google. Does that mean the file needs to be changed and the whole work restarted; Or only changing the file would do? Solomon7968 (talk) 15:00, 12 December 2013 (UTC)

I hope someone helps you. I would but I don't know the answer. Ineuw might know. He is very smart with files. I cannot think of anyone smarter than Ineuw when comes to working with files. He has helped me in the past when I needed help. I haven't encountered the situation you have but as I think of this, there are others here who can probably remove that page such as George Orwell III. —Maury (talk) 18:24, 12 December 2013 (UTC)

—Maury (talk) 00:13, 13 December 2013 (UTC)

Only the files need to be edited. I will do it. Yann (talk) 05:49, 14 December 2013 (UTC)
Done. Yann (talk) 07:31, 14 December 2013 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done Thanks both. Solomon7968 (talk) 10:16, 14 December 2013 (UTC)

Take a look at the Google Books section of the new page Help:Internet Archive/Requested uploads. It may benefit from your input. Solomon7968 (talk) 10:39, 4 February 2014 (UTC)

Moving Your Files to Wikimedia Commons[edit]

Don't worry. He's watching your back. And yes, he's hosted on Commons.

Hello Yann!

First, thank you for your contributions to Wikisource. Any contributions are always very much appreciated. While searching around, I noticed that you have some files that you uploaded to Wikisource that would probably serve the community better if it was on Wikimedia Commons, a media file repository. You can view your files to see which ones I'm referring to. See the Image Guidelines for more information.

Why should you do this?

As an example, let's pretend you extracted a hard-to-find image from a book written in 1870. If you upload it to Wikisource, only Wikisource users can use it. What if a user from Japan is writing an article about a similar topic? If your file is on Wikisource, it's unlikely he'll find it, and if he's lucky enough to find it, he still won't be able to use it easily. However, if you uploaded it to Commons, it's much more likely he'll find it and be able to use it. (Files hosted on Commons are accessible from any sister project) The same goes for any PDF or DJVU files you upload as well.

Note: To "move" a page from Wikisource to Commons is simple, but somewhat confusing if you don't know how to. First, upload the file to Commons with the same file name as you did here. Add the same information, making sure you put in the correct license. I suggest adding the {{Wikisource image}} template to its Commons page. Then edit the file's page at Wikisource and add the template {{Now Commons}}. Soon an administrator will complete the "move" by deleting the Wikisource copy (as it's no longer needed). You don't need to change any tags on Wikisource as they'll automatically point to the new file. Awesome!

If you have any questions or concerns, don't be afraid to ask.
