Greetings folks - welcome to my talk page. There is some discussion here which I'll leave up, but in future, if you expect me to notice your comments, please leave them on my wikipedia talk page.


Hello, ChristianEdwardGruber, welcome to Wikisource! Thanks for your interest in the project; we hope you'll enjoy the community and your work here. If you need help, see our help pages (especially Adding texts and Wikisource's style guide). You can discuss or ask questions from the community in general at the Scriptorium. The Community Portal lists tasks you can help with if you wish. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me on my talk page. :)

Hi. Your page-numbering template looks useful. Please mention it on Scriptorium. We are just now looking at the templates WS uses with a view to rationalising them to make them easier to find and use. 21:05, 5 January 2006 (UTC)

A Question[edit]

I've seen the great work you have done with the referencing template and as I have no skill in these things, I was wondering if you could help me. I recentlty did a major revision of Gettysburg Address so it now shows several versions on one page. I made a seperate Template:Textinfo for each version. I also set up Template:Edition for each version even though it is just a link to the talk page. I was wondering if it was possible to take the code of Template:Edition and make it look like Template:Edition but have it actually go to some sort of anchor right before the appropriate TextInfo box. Is that even possible? And could you take a look at that page and see if you can set it up. The Gettysburg Address is likely to be on the Main Page at Wikipedia soon and I wanted to try and make that article it's best before then as it should get a good deal of hits that day.--BirgitteSB 21:17, 11 January 2006 (UTC)

Another question[edit]

How many pages can your indexing tags cope with? I am part way through tidying up Men of Invention and Industry, and it would be great to include the index pages which are missing from the Project Gutenberg version. The book has 378 pages, and I have made separate documents of the 12 chapters. Kind regards. PS don't forget my request elsewhere for you to write a Help: page on how to use your system.

Page numbers[edit]

I used the page numbers from the html source from, which match up with the physical book (both hard and soft cover). Since these are the most-prevelent sources I think that's the way to go. Currently the page numbers represent the top of the page (i.e. "page 14" represents the bottom of page 13, and the top of page 14). -- Jeff3000 19:36, 20 January 2006 (UTC)

Bahai works[edit]


I just wanted to point to your attention that the Bahai Faith works you've contributed here are up for deletion. The reason being is that when you uploaded the works, WS had no policy regarding "free content"--meaning we allowed non-commercial works to be uploaded here. Unfortunately, this is against Wikimedia Foundation policy, and we must remove all non-commercial works. This means that the Bahai works must be deleted, as they do not conform to this standard.

I apologize for the inconvenience of this and all the effort that was put into this work only to have it up for deletion. You can comment on it at the deletion request page.—Zhaladshar (Talk) 18:34, 9 May 2006 (UTC)

Bahá'í Reference Library[edit]


I am writing you to tell you that the works

will be deleted from WS. According to the TOS of the Bahá'í Reference Library, the content can only be used for non-commercial purposes. This violates WS copyright policy where all works must be allowed to be used commercially. We all appreciate the work you've put into these works and it saddens us to have to delete them.—Zhaladshar (Talk) 20:47, 26 May 2006 (UTC)
