Tool References[edit]


html and css[edit]



{{Pline}} - makes a line number

Scans to locate for works we have[edit]

Texts I have Uploaded (or had others upload for me) to Commons for use at enWS[edit]

Some of these are duplicates of above, others have not been indexed, links are to Commons:

Work on getting specific texts[edit]

I'm working with Inductiveload to seek out and upload large numbers of ancient, medieval, and Renaissance texts, some of which are listed here:

Sources and Resources[edit]

Free e-book scans[edit]

  • British Library not sure if these are actually full text scans - need further investigation

Needs a bot to effectively scrape but no membership or passwords to access scans:


Bibliographies and link lists[edit]

These can be useful for locating texts or at least locating information on texts to identify targets to search via Google.

John Dee[edit]

Journal of the Western Mystery Tradition John Dee.Com

Texts On WS that I find particularly intriguing[edit]

Maybe I'll work on them, maybe I'll read them

Various pages I had an open tab on and couldn't figure out why later[edit]

Pages on WS that I find particularly helpful[edit]

Examples, nice ways to do things, good style, etc.

More {{versions}}:[edit]


Pages on WS that I find particularly unhelpful or problematic[edit]

  • Masefield
    • - duh - at the time I posted this here the article looked like this, the problem was with the sister link which was just plain dumb, this was an example of a systemic problem with sister links which has been largely - though not entirely - addressed.
  • The Wizardry of George H. Earle, Jr. - more duh - same as above, though this one hasn't been edited since January which disproves my belief that a bot had taken care of these sister links. In case someone changes this one by hand, it looked like this on 18 August 2011 when I made this note.
  • Wikisource:Sister projects - this is the reason for this section
  • Template:Cleaning/Category:Cleaning - do we really need this? See Template:Cleanup/Category:Clean up and also the link in the template to wp:cleanup, really?

Other users who have good stuff in their userspace[edit]


{{Need image}} - created by me, I consider this the best


Scripts and script info[edit]


User:Phe/Scripts User:Phe/Scripts/ User:Phe/Author - output from the above User:Phe/Author_possible_match


Bot stuff (mostly py)[edit] - needs a lot of work to clarify



My subspaces:[edit]

My .js:[edit]

My scripts:[edit]

My user templates (for wip etc):[edit]

Backlinks reports:[edit]



Bot testing:[edit]

Books (using the book creation tool):[edit]

Ideas, bright and dim[edit]

  • transclude {{versions}} pages to the appropriate author page and any relevant dab then make them collapsible/expandable, like commons creator templates are.


Database Reports stuff[edit]

Notes on interwiki Bots[edit]

  • User:ZSBot - en says unflagged iw lang only but it is flagged and has done more than just iw lang (over 10k edits), la bot is flagged for iw; bot is inactive since 4/2009 so at the very least the sort status should be switched to "I"; on la bot has 94 edits, last in 10/2008; no other edits.
