The Book of Martyrs (Foxe)[edit]

Will you be attending to the pages of this work later? Or would you like me to take care of them? --EncycloPetey (talk) 17:30, 31 December 2018 (UTC)

@EncycloPetey: I intended to take care of them later, but if you are able and willing to take care of them now, I would be very grateful. —Beleg Tâl (talk) 17:32, 31 December 2018 (UTC)
On a related note, do you know where the list of Deletion reasons is located? One reason is "Exported to Bibliowiki (formerly Wikilivres) in Canada". This statement should probably be updated to the current name and location. --EncycloPetey (talk) 17:46, 31 December 2018 (UTC)
@EncycloPetey: I saw that too. Unfortunately I don't know where that data is located. —Beleg Tâl (talk) 19:16, 31 December 2018 (UTC)
@EncycloPetey: I found it and updated it : MediaWiki:Deletereason-dropdownBeleg Tâl (talk) 03:20, 2 January 2019 (UTC)

Song (Coates)[edit]

I noted your note at the Song page that I will be the one to transfer Coates' list of songs over... Thanks :) I haven't forgotten, but will likely get to it in February. Have a good one! Londonjackbooks (talk) 16:41, 14 January 2019 (UTC)

History of Ink...[edit]

Thanks for doing the various scripts...

In terms of those remaining:

Page:The_History_of_Ink.djvu/111 : - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sinhalese_script

Page:The History of Ink.djvu/113 - Aethopic - Is it a localised script like that in w:Tigrinya_language or variant of something else entirely? - See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ge%27ez_script

Both appear to be in Unicode BTW. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 14:42, 16 January 2019 (UTC)
@ShakespeareFan00: Thanks for this. I am frankly stumped on the Sinhalese; I spent a good amount of time trying to figure it out. The Sinhala word for ink is තීන්ත which is clearly not the word used in this text. I couldn't find any synonyms or similar terms in Sinhala that look similar either. I can't tell which characters are the ones used in the text, as there are many very similar ones. Is it ඳලී? ලචි? උඑ? None of the combinations I tried turned out to be words, much less words with meanings similar to "ink". Maybe we can ask at w:si:විකිපීඩියා:උදවු කවුළුව and see if someone there would be willing to weigh in? —Beleg Tâl (talk) 15:05, 16 January 2019 (UTC)
I just posted at w:si:විකිපීඩියා:උදවු_කවුළුව#Can someone help me at English Wikisource?. We will see if anyone responds. —Beleg Tâl (talk) 15:10, 16 January 2019 (UTC)

Sorry to bother you but...[edit]

Nipping something in the bud: Special:Contributions/176.88.20.164 would be appreciated. Please remove this notification per DENY once resolved. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 11:20, 23 January 2019 (UTC)

@ShakespeareFan00: looks like EncycloPetey took care of it already. What's DENY ? —Beleg Tâl (talk) 16:20, 23 January 2019 (UTC)
As in "Deny recognition" , generally on other wikis notifcations to admins about bad editors are suppressed once the isssue is resovled, so that the bad editor isn't given publicity. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 16:46, 23 January 2019 (UTC)

Deleting pages orphaned due to file/index rebuilds..[edit]

I'd been trying to reduce the number of Page: namespace pages in Special:LonelyPages... ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 11:04, 1 February 2019 (UTC)

Any chance you could review what for the most part are largely technical speedy deletion requests, and possibly take a look in the special page concerned to eliminate a few more? ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 11:04, 1 February 2019 (UTC)

Portal space[edit]

Out of curiosity, what is an example of a Portal that would use {{PD-old}}? --EncycloPetey (talk) 02:43, 3 February 2019 (UTC)

@EncycloPetey: Saw it on Portal:Westminster Assembly; Special:PrefixIndex Special:WhatLinksHere might show more —Beleg Tâl (talk) 02:50, 3 February 2019 (UTC)
