I cant access the Google Book, but this has barroques instead of ''baroques. I'm guessing this is a problem with transcription. John Vandenberg 16:59, 6 November 2007 (UTC)

Add an iwiki[edit]

Please add a link ru:Чёрный кот (По/Михаловский) to the Russian translation. -- Sergey kudryavtsev (talk) 16:13, 29 March 2009 (UTC)

NB: The Polish translation was deleted (copyright violation). -- Sergey kudryavtsev (talk) 16:19, 29 March 2009 (UTC)

I'm not sure why this page is completely locked out. It seems like other featured texts are semi-protected, but not completely protected. Anyone know how to take care of this? --Midnightdreary (talk) 02:06, 30 March 2009 (UTC)
As per our featured texts policy: Protected: The work should be locked to protect its integrity after selection. However, it should not be protected during the discussion to allow improvement.. Jude (talk) 13:29, 30 March 2009 (UTC)

Please, change link [[ru:Чёрный кот (По/Михаловский)]] to [[ru:Чёрный кот (По)]] --Dmitry Rozhkov (talk) 19:49, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

Actually, all the translations should be added here, so they can be compared in side-by-side mode.--Prosfilaes (talk) 02:56, 19 August 2009 (UTC)
Done. The feature doesn't handle multiple links to the same wiki. Another reason why botting interwikis is problematic for Wikisource. The native language work should link to a foreign language disambig page, but the foreign language works should each link to the native work. The bots are setup for 1:1 relationships to they stumble over multiple translations. And you can't just blacklist all the works you have in multiple versions and think it done, because you won't catch the cases where you have the native version being messed up by multiple versions in another language.--BirgitteSB 03:26, 21 August 2009 (UTC)


I made a number of small corrections since this text was moved to the Page; namespace. These were hyphens removed, case changes, italic, and spelling, I'm not sure I got them all. I think it would have been easier to correct ocr than these sort of changes. Cygnis insignis (talk) 11:01, 11 April 2010 (UTC)
