Welcome

Hello, and welcome to Wikisource! Thank you for joining the project. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are a few good links for newcomers:

Please consider putting a brief description of yourself on your user page. If you are already a contributor to another Wikimedia project, such as Wikipedia, please mention this on your user page so we know how to contact you. Also, mention which languages you understand if English is not your first language.

In any case, I hope you enjoy donating your time to grow the Wikisource library that is free for everyone to use! In discussions, please "sign" your comments using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your IP address (or username if you're logged in) and the date. If you need help, ask me on my talk page, or ask your question here (click edit) and place {{helpme}} before your question.

Again, welcome! John Vandenberg (chat) 23:04, 24 January 2008 (UTC)

ct ligature template[edit]

Hi, just to let you know that the {{ct}} template was disabled because it breaks searches. This means that using it on a page does nothing other than make it harder to validate. Additionally, should search engines become able to interpret this character from a different language as the ct ligature, re-enabling the template would be unlikely to gain support here as it represents a printer's font artefact rather than an actual glyph in the English language.

Aha. I'll stop using that, then. Thanks. --Chowbok (talk) 08:51, 10 December 2014 (UTC)
I have seen your commentary on an index talk that seems to contrary to the guidance at Wikisource:Style guide. This document is the community's consensus on style, and deviation from that should not be based on a personal preference. If you think that the style guide is in need of updating, then please propose that and let us see where the conversation progresses. — billinghurst sDrewth 08:58, 11 December 2014 (UTC)
People here should be nicer to the newbies. I'm just going off what I was told by other users.--Chowbok (talk) 17:17, 11 December 2014 (UTC)
How was what I said unnice. I pointed you to difference in your proposal to the guidance. — billinghurst sDrewth 11:23, 13 December 2014 (UTC)

Running headers[edit]

Hi, for running page headers with page numbers like Page:An Answer to the Declaration of the American Congress.djvu/15 we use the {{running header}} template. There's an abbreviated redirect {{rh}}, which is what I usually use e.g. Page:The red and the black (1916).djvu/271. A more complex three field use is at Page:Ante-Nicene Christian Library Vol 3.djvu/162. There's a four field version, but I've never needed to use it. Have fun, Beeswaxcandle (talk) 08:28, 12 December 2014 (UTC)

Ah, very cool. Thanks!Chowbok (talk) 18:38, 12 December 2014 (UTC)
